CICERO STILL HER OWN BOSS IN
Cicero still owns her municipal
lighting equipment The Public
Service Co. last night failed to get
the plum promised them by the "Citi
zens' " party a twenty-five-year
franchise for the commercial light
ing and the town street lights for
$66,000. A delegation of 300 citizens
appeared at the town hall last night
to protest against the action of the
five trustees of the "Citizens' " .party.
Cat-calls and hisses were heard wlien
the trustees voted for the ordinance.
Aldermen Hlavka and Wyrzykow
swi, Republicans, have so far prevent
ed the passage of the ordinance. It
takes a three-fourths majority to
pass the ordinance and they are im
movable in their stand for municipal
The chief argument used by the
"Citizens' " party is their claim that
the lights cost the city. $55 each to
maintain last year. Wyrzykowski
showed tthis statement up. They dfd
cost the city that if the damage suits
were added into the expense, but pot
otherwise. The Public Service Co.
wants the town to pay $44 for each
"Due to improper equipment sev
eral men were electrocuted last
year," ths alderman said. "The
causes have been abolished and we
do not expect to have any more acci
dents. "That story which the Examiner
published this morning was untrue.
It says we may be without lights.
This is impossible, for we have al
ready purchased the equipment'from
the sanitary district and we now pur
chase nower from them at a much
less rate than what the Public Serv
ice Co. wishes tq supply us. That
company can have our commercial
lighting, but it cannot have our street
lighting outfit They want both."
