Oscar Hewitt, in the Tribune, tells
why the Pennsylvania Railroad has
changed its attitude and now wants
to rent certain streets instead of hav
ing council vacate tfiem.

votes in council to vacate and only 36
to permit the use of streets.
But it would be all the same to the

Reformers are still arguing about

And both the reformers and the
dancers are enjoying themselves in
their own way one finding fault and

Yet the real cause of the trouble
