compromise at $500 had been offered,
but neither the advocates of temper

It. Both sides joined In defeating this
amendment, theBupporters of the bill
because they believed a $500 tax would
bo merely a'revomio measure and
would not put any saloons nut of busi
ness; the opponents of the bill bo

beat it In its most radical form,

MAYOR DUNNE DELIGHTED
Over the Victory for the
Chicago, March 13. By the sup;
court decision Chicago gains aim
complete contiol of the local traction
situation. The decision sustains th
acts of the state legislature extondlm?
the life of the charters of the street
railway companies to 99 years, but
does not sustain tho contention of tho
companies that contract lights which
are limited to fewer years than remain
to the charter life of tho companies
are also extended. Contracts or ordi
nances of the city limiting the uso of
the streets by the companies arc up
held, aiid the rights of the companies
in the streets are held to explie ac
cording to tho expressed terms of tho
ordinances. In its effect the decision
leaves the Union Traction company
I without any right whatever other than
by sufferance In tho streets of tho
north division of tho city. """
It leaves the Union Traction com
pany In tho west division without
rights excepting where the ordinances
contain a purchase cladse.
It leaves the Chicago City Railway
company, which opotatcs all the street
car lines on tho south side of the city,
without right excepting where the or
dinances contain a purchase clause.
The original franchises granted to
tho street car companies wete for 99
years inside the city limits as they ex
isted iu18f!r. The companies have
extended their tracks as the bounda
ries of the city have been enlarged and
havo claimed that the extended linos
which were built under franchises
from the city wero also operative un
der the 99-year act. The court also de
nies tho claim cf the companies that
they Havo been vested with the exclu
sive lights for 99 years to enter into
contracts with the city for the .occu
pancy of Chicago's stieots for stieet
railway purposes. The decision also
holds that the street car companies
could receive only such grants as tho
city might give and upon such terms
and such conditions. Including tho
time of the grant, as that city might
Tho city has all along admitted that
the 99-year act Is valid, but claimed
that. It did not extend the ordinances
under which (he street car companies
aie operating at present.
"It Is n sweeping victory for tha
,clty," said Mayor Dunne. "There are
no 99-year franchises in tho city ot
Chicago, according to this decision,"
and no Indefinite or perpetual grants
In the outlying territory,. "We 'Havo.
tho ti action companies now In a posi
tion whero we can negotiate for tho
purchase of lines. If they do not want
to sell at a fair price, we can declare
our rights under the decision."

Instrument for the muintaluance of a

long letter of acknowledgement and
acceptance of the honor for himself
and for President Roosevelt, Secie-
tary Taft makes some striking state
ments. Referring to tho lecent defeat
of George U. Cox, as a political leader
In this city, the secretary says that
this is a great step towards good muni
cipal government, "but Its benefit
may be largely lost if tho people pat
themselves on the back with the pleas

United Mine Workers of Amerlca,
called by I'lesident John Mitchell In
response to the lequest of President
Roosevelt to make, an effort to avert
a stilke of all coal miners In tile Uni
ted States, opens Thursday. The re
scinding of tho Ryan resolution will bo
the most Important business to come
before the convention. Until this is
done theie can be no joint conference
with the operators who will come to
Indianapolis next week.
This Is the effect of the announce
ment by the anthracite operators that
they will not accede to tho demands
of their employes. The lefusal of the
anthracite operators to treat further
with the mlneis makes a setleinent
with the union in districts one, seven
and nine out of the question. The
Ryan resolution, adopted by tho
miners just before the adjournment of
their regular national convention, pro
vides that contracts must be signed in
all districts under the control of the
organization at the same time or that
no agieements shall bo entered into.

the subject o any grent oxtcnt, but It
is easy to see that they are in a bet
