MAY ENJOIN MAYOR
But St. Louis Executivo Says
Ho Will Sign Bill Kill
HOWE'S STOCK WORTHLESS
Company Threatens to Test Right ol
City to Repeal Grant at
This Time. '
Despite threat of 'being enjoined,
Mayor HcnyW. Kiel announced that
he would sign tho oitllnnnco which
was passed recently for tho repeal ol
the 50-year franchise to the Southern
Traction Company to operate street
cars over the unfinished free bridge
and to build a loop In the dp wn town
district of St. I-otila. .The house of
delegates voted for tho repeat 26 to 1.
It was repealed by tho council early
In the week.
Tljo bill goes to the mayor for signa
ture after It has been signed by the
speaker of the house of delegates and
tho president of the city council. The
special election on the 2 3-4 million
dollar bond issue to complete the
bridge will bo held November G. It Is
expected that the mayor will have
signed the bill by that time.
While this, more than anything else,
probably predicts the passage of the
bond Issue, It will mako virtually
worthless the $330,000 worth of tho
traction company's bonds that Jeptlia
D. Howse received for the passage of
the franchise and which he lent to the
Lorlmer-Gollagher Construction Com
pany which borrowed $180,000 on the
bonds from the Lorimer bank.
Largely because of that, it was said
that tho attorneys for the traction
company would file an injunction to
prevent the mayor from signing the
measure. They have served warning
that they will have the courts of the
city and tho state interpret the law as
to whether the city has a right to re.
peal the franchise. If tho injunction is
granted, It Is believed hero that it
would again defeat the bridge bond
