"Ko, I do not think President Holmes
will be rrtlred from the management of
the city ranway company." said 8. W.
Allerton last evening. "He Is too good a
man to lose and the stockholders know it.
They are mostly broad-gaaged men and
fully appreciate the work that C. B.
Holmes has done in building up the south
side railway system.
"He has worked faithfully and steadily,
and bss now tbe finest street car system
ia tbe world. He h t progressive and
liberal man, sud while be may bave mads
some mistakes bis general policy has been
wonderfully successsful. A year ago 1
told Mr. Holmes that be was making a
mistake in branching oil into outside in
terests, sod gained bis promise to cot
away from everything but our road. Since
that time he haa severed hi connect loa
with as many outside concerns as pos
sible, and I feel sure tbe man was doiog
bir best to close up all his outside deals.
I told him w could afford to pay him
20.000 a year if necessary, but that we
wanted all bis time.
"Mr. L liter is the heaviest stock bold
er in tbe read, and 1 bave long wanted
him to be a director. I wish he would
Uke my place. I am sure. I bave worked
for the company a good many years and
m getting tired of it. Of course I can't
speak for the o-.her. but I for one will
stand by Mr. Holmts to the last. D. K.
Pearsons will do the same. I rather
think all this excitement will cool- down
before tbe decisive meeting in Jsnuary is
beld. and that then 70a will see Mr.
Holmes re-elected No counter steps are
taken to prevent bis being deposed,
simply because I don't think it worth
while. "Chicago DoiTy AteV -
Tbe Chicago Etening Pott prints an
interesting Interview with Mr. Holmes in
which be ssys tbe company is in no wsv
embarrassed or tromled financially acd
that furthermore he has no intention of
resigning the presidency of the South
side company in Chicago. In abort Mr.
Holmes ssys thst sll this fuss and dissatis
faction is confined to a few people who
studiously avoid telling him of his faults,
but force on him the. information they
have and the aoreneas they feci tbronuh
tbe newspapers. He is very quiet., very"
calm, very dignified, and hopes to see Ue
attacks made on him disappear when they
have ripened to tbe point where they
must either be justified or abandoned.
