MASS MEETING PLANNED TO PROTEST AGAINST DEEM 10 REVISION OF CHARTER Council’s Blow To Municipal Ownership Causes Much Indignation In City \ MAY BE RECONSIDERED Hoped That Aldermen Will Yet Arrange For Special Election in June Municipal ownership advocates who wer? disappointed by the action of the council, Tuesday night, in voting against the submission of the ques tion of charter revision in a special election are planning to hold a mass meeting to protest. An effort will be made to get the council to recousider the vote in the meeting next Tuesday night, but notice of reconsideration must b«f filed by Friday night by some alderman who voted against the special election. When Aid Littlefield voted against the immediate submission plan some of tbie aldermen supposed for a time that he did so simply to have the privilege of filing u reconsideration notice, when it became evident that the "antis” would vote down the pro position. Great was their surprise to learn from Littlefield that under no circumstances would he move for reconsideration. '•'he vote Tuesday night was th** true expression of my opinion on the subject.” he said to The Times Wed nesday morning. "I believe a special election would boa useless waste of money and under no circumstances will I file notice of reconsideration.” As lute as Tuesday noon advocates of the special election supposed that they had Littlefield with them. No sooner had the council's action become known, Wednesday morning, than the aldermen began hearing from their constituents. The laboring ele ment is very favorable to the plan for a special election, and some of tlu* leaders are now planning with the municipal ownership men to call a mass meeting and Invite some of the aldermen, so as to insure notice of a reconsideration being, filed by Friday night. They believe fhey can muste" sufficient strength by next Tuesday night to put through the special elec tion plan. Arrangements may be com pleted Wednesday afternoon for the mass meeting, which will probably be held Thursday night. In this connection it is pointed out that Aid. Gutman is a candidate for county auditor and Aid. Watson is a candidate for county treasurer. Some of the labo* union people believe they can exert sufficient Influence over one or the other of them to secure the filing of a reconsideration notice. The proposition to submit the ques tion of charter revision In a special election.

March 27.—De nouncing the theories and methods of the tariff bourd us "erroneous and untenable,” the Democrats of the house ways and means committee to day filed with the house a voluminous report on the reintroduced Under wood wool bill, vetoed by the presi dent last summer. The committee declares that the wool report gives absolutely no rea sons change In the bill passed las^inear. "The committee has made a care ful analysis of the report of the tar iff board in order to interpret the findings and to discover in what par ticulars the committee's bill of the last session was defective,” the re port states. "This analysis has failed jto reveal anything that requires a single change in the rates fixed in j the committee's bill. "As shown in the analysis, the data of the report of the tariff board have been found to be diffuse and j unsystematic and to present insig-, nlflcant findings. "The theory of applying tariff duties according to the difference iu the cost of production in this and for eign countries, upon which the board has projected and prepared its re- \ port, is entirely erroneous and un- j tenable. "Those persons who are willing to overlook the lack of theoretical soundness and of statistical accuracy, j will find the data of the report too fragmentary and incomplete to admit of conclusions with reference to rates of tariff duty. The report leaves the question of the tariff duties on wool ; as much unsolved as before the tariff j board was formed.

Verdier Is Expected To In troduce Resolution Asking: Osborn To Submit Measure SUFFRAGE BILL IN HOUSE Seven Representatives Who Voted Against It in Regular Session Favor It Now From a Staff Correspondent. LANSING, Mich., March 27.—Gov ernor Osborn said this morning that he had received messages from forty to fifty mayors of Michigan citleH ask ing for steps to secure a constitu tional amendment that would enable cities to amend their charters without revising them. It is said that Representative Ver dier will introduce a resolution this afternoon asking the governor to sub mit the required measure. It is also planned to secure an amendment to the home-rule law go that cities will be able to amend their charters often er than once in two years. The resolution to ask the governor for authority to amend the law rela tive to the building of armories* which was defeated the other day, was re considered this morning and adopted It is understood that the governor's message on this matter is prepare l und will lve submitted thfs afternoon and that its submission will be fol lowed by the offering of a bill tha* will more liberally provide state funds for the erection of armories. The woman’s suffrage measure came over from the senate after hav ing been given the necessary two thirds majority iu that body and on motion of Representative Flowers the rules were suspended and it was placed on the general order. It was claimed Hits morning that seven mem bers who voted against the bill at the regular session were in favor of it now. The suffragists need but 12 more than they had at the regular session. it is planned not to take the mat ter up for final action until there Is a reasonable certainty that the neces sary have been secured. There was some friction in the house this morning when the speaker decided that the rule providing that bills must be printed and placed be fore the members five days prior to final action, did not apply to a special session.

MAD 00G SCARE CONTINUES; KIEFER AND CROUL DRAFT ORDINANCE AMENDMENT New Measure Proposes That Animals Be Muzzled Whenever Away From Owners’ Homes OPPOSITION IS IN SIGHT Littlefield Says Aldermen Will Likely Oppose Plan—An other Boy Bitten Health Officer Kiefer and Police Commissioner Croul have completed their draft of an amendment to the present dog ordinance, and it will go to the common council at an early date. The amendment provides for the muzzling of all dogs every day in the year when outside of the own ers'. homes; also for the immediate ex termination of dogs which are vicious. “Wo conferred with Judges Phelan and Connolly in regard to the amend ment," h«id Dr. Kiefer to The Times, Wednesday, "and they assured us that they thought it could be enforced. Personally, C am convinced that dogs should be muzzled at all times of the year on the streets, In alleys or any other place at large. I also believe that any dog which is at all dangerous should be killed. Human lives cannot get too much protection from the dread disease of hydrophobia. It is a disease which should always be re garded most seriously; It is not to be trlflled with. Nor should we make light of a mad dog segre. While con ditions may often be exaggerated, there Is always a great danger of the spread of rabies. Therefore, we can not be too careful in our precaution ary measures.” in the council the amendment is likely to have pretty hard sledding. There are several aldermen now op posed to the plan of muzzling the dogs all the year around. “They’ve got to show me some pretty good reasons before I’ll sup port the scheme.’’ said Aid. Sherman Littlefield to The Times, Wednes day. "It will be pretty hard on tlo* dogs to keep them muzzled alt the time tlisy are away from home, and l don't think many of the aldermen will take very kindly to the Idea. However, if the authorities can show me where such a precaution Is abso lutely r.tcessaty for the prevention of rabies, why. I’ll likely stand by them. It kicks to me, though, that they will have a hard job convincing us that I such a rtep is necessary.” I Signal Officer Joseph Kuhn, of Elm wood station, beat a supposed tnad clog to death with a baseball bat., Tuesday afternoon, when the flying squadron responded to a call from the < and] atom of J .1 Youngblood, No. 10 riiamplatn-sT.7'where a big white bulldog was frothing at the mouth and snapping at passersby.

Members of the Illinois National Guard are patrolling the streets, all saloons are closed and no one is al lowed to loiter about the streets. The trouble which led up to last night's bloodshed grew' out of a bit ter political light that has been rag ing for a' month or more between Mayor Harry M.
