As It contains a section for the appropria

When the mayor's .veto of the ordinance

Tho mayoi'b message lend us toilows-
"Gentlemen I heiewitli return ordinance

that I do not believe It wise or proper
10 givo nw.ij valuable franchises foi any
length of time without receiving sulllclent

respect the ordinance Is dellclent. All fimi
rhlbeH lxlimg to the cltj, nnd tho city and
Its otllUals Hlioubl belong to the ptoplo,
nnd It is mj' opinion that bald ordinance Is
not In the lnteiests of tho people.
"Vi:ilSTi:it n.VVIS. Major"
Mr. Craig moved that the onllnnnco and
message be lefeued to the public Improve
ments committee, but the motion wns not
seconded. Tho speaker put It to the bouse,
however, and It was promptly voted down.
Mr. Cling being tho only member to votu
for It,
Then Mr. Drown took the floor. ITe said
that the major's statement wns couched In
the most general turns. Ills objections
weie not made directly against nny partic
ular featura of the oidlnuneo. In regard
tn theio being no renium latlon to tho peo
pin tor tho grant bo thought ill it
point was nnsweied by tho fact that
all of tho piesent franchise's glvo
the cltj' the light to put a tax;
1111 eveiy car opeiated by the eompany, In
tho form of a. license. Ho said that provis
ion remains, nnd if the franchiso is t-o val
uable and becomes moiu bo in the futilie,
so that there should be a larger revenue,
the council has tho power to Increase tho
license. At present tho cltj- Is ill awing a
levenuo from this source In nddltlon to
tho revenue fiom taxation of tho eotn
pnnj's ptaperty. Under tho new onllnnnco
tiansfer privileges ate inailu obligatory,
unit the peoplo will get vast benefit theie
fiom. when all tho facts weio considered
lio could see no reahon tn change his mind,
nnd should vote to pass the ordinance.
Mr. Kldwell took similar ground. Ho
milled that the committee having chnrgo of
the matter ha 1 given it as borlous attention
and as beiious thought as any measuro
beforo tho council hnd ever received. He
then rend tho messnge, nnd snld that tho
major had criticised the house very sharn
lv. He thought It would have been sulll
elent for the major to have said that In
bis opinion the oidlnancu was dellclent.
He did not know what construction tho
major put on tho closing sentences of tho
message, but he construed It to Imply that
the major thought tho inembeis who voted
for the ordin ince had been paid a price,
Jf such was the Intention of the major ho
wished to repel It. Ho discussed the mat
ter nt great length, nnd concluded by reit
erating his objection to tho language of the
mebbago and tho statement that ho would
vote to pass the ordinance,
Mr. Olson snld that as n member of tho
committee which had consideied und 1 ex
ported on the ordlnnnce, ho had supported
it, He lived In a district where there were
a great many w 01 king people, who to-day
are unable to lido to their vvoik without
pajing two fares. He favored the chance to
give them a ride to uny point In the city
for 5 cents. He would vote for tho ordi
nance, Mr. Cratg said that he understood his
colleagues had refused to support n motion
to refer because the major had refused to
call a meeting for to-night. Ho wanted
the people to have a chance to express
themselves and If the mayor refused tn
call another meeting the delay was tho
fault of tho major and not of tho house.
In the Ilsht he had on the measure, with
the transfer provisions in It, he would re
peat his vote of the night before.
Speaker Stoner called Mr. Craig to the
chair and criticised the extension section
of tho ordinance. He favored the transfer
sjstein.but said whatever action was taken
by the council would subject tho members
to criticism. He spoka at length on the po
litical effect of the matter, and urged the
members to do what they inought was
right. He resumed the chair, und nobody
else wishing to speak, put the question as
above. Councllmen Pendergast, Moran,
Craig, Olson, Itegati, How man. Hrown.
Kldwell and Mr. Speaker voted to pass
and Councilman Illeger to sustain tho veto.
The speaker then announced that a two
thirds majority of the members elect hav
