Alderman Nona, who la acrvlng on tha
rou.iT.:: ire. aand when I talkad with him:
"I am in favor of abolishing tha private
naekatanda and lowering tha ratea and

"WILL VOTE TO ABOLISH PRI
"Th1a committee haa been at thli
propoaltlon alnca laat Kebruary and my
mind la made up that the one Thing to
give the piblto a more efficient and
popular aervlca la to abollah tha prlvaie
Jia-kstanda and lower tha rate., and I
Intend to vote that way.
"I have Studied tha question from all
Idea and have come to the conclusion
1 bat aa Ion aa the present anstem of
riivate hackatanda la In operation the
ervloe wsll practically remain tha samo,
without any bop of future adjustment
from drlvera and hackmen throughout
"If there ba a free-for-all use of the
aueets. where any hack may taka up
irada. It la bound to itlve a more gan
ral aervlce than a monopoly of private
atanda, which operations have been ao
(tvweloped aa to praciuda a poaajblllty of
low rataa In tile near future. There
fore, II would aeem up to our commit,
tea to make our raco mmendevtlona and
aa If by our action a better result may
net ba obtained.
"It baa not been tried. I am not In
favor of Just merely putting through
refulaUona for drivers, aa an ordinance
by Itself, and leave the other and equally
Important Items to follow tatar.
"If there be opposition by the Alder
man as to private hackstands or ratea,
'hen theae parts of the ordinance may
lbs taken up separately, but all our
jeoommendatlons should be sent to tha
fonrd of Aldermen nt one ond the same
IT IS TIME TO DO SOMETHING
FOR THE PUBLIC.
"There have been many hearings and
all kind of Investigations, and I think
It Is Boon tlm to do something I for
one am ready to vote In the mitnni-r
mentioned In the hope of giving the '
public what haa eemlngly hen nee-led !
and In demond for a long time -a more
efTlrlent nnd lower rate service,
"I biive heard a lot of talk about
'Keogrnphv' and 'dead mileage' end dif
ferent conditions that eslst In Knro
pean rifles where the service Is per
fected. While It may be true that we
cannot hope lo have a aervlee as effi
cient and aa cheap aa that enloyed by
Kumpean dtlea, If we take a atrnmr
eland In thle niuch-tnlke.l-of menenre
and abollah the private back service,
which Is unknown In European cMee,
we can hope to get things different
from what they are now.
"I'm not In favor of putting In tlreae
adjustments piecemeal. I think It Is a
food thing to get aa much done aa wa
possibly can. My conviction ara made
IS on this question and I Intend to
e uTKl bv them."
Mr. Sottas SchOSfl the sent menta of
ii her AM. i men In this assertion. While
I Is auld that all the Aldermen fSVOT
