Tweiuy-iht-ie Senators roted to leave the bill In the warehoii-e c'raveyaid, where It retiialm-d when the Senate ad-Joiiriti-d. The Sau'.'amou County Craud Jury should act after the notorious "twenty-three" and a few other dl-tln-Kiilshed hihbyl-ts, as we have not heard of any of the-e lino birds deny Inu Senator Hamilton's statement when he said- "The Warehouse Com mittee hi. (I been used for a rareyard, and charged that tho Houso bill re-pralln-,' the warvhoiMe act had been Remember Gas Trust Akin, the Attorney-General of Illinois. The Gas Trust uses Chicago's streets and pays absolutely nothing for them. On the contrary, it charges the city $1 per 1,000 feet for all the gas it uses, and the city pays the pricel When the People's Gas Company made gas out of coal it employed 700 men at good wages. It now makes gas out of oil and employs about 40 men in Ihe new process. Four gallons of oil cost 3-4 of a cent a gallon and make 1,000 feet of gas, which nets $ I when sold to the people. The Gas Trust shows the European noblemen, whose money it handles, that some things can be bought here cheaper than they can in Europe Legislatures, for instance. The Chicago managers of the Gas Trust are at the bottom of several other trusts that control the people's food supply. The Gas Trust will soon be able to starve the people or keep them in darkness, as it sees fit. You know who your Senators and Representatives are, and if you are not sure whether they were bribe-takers or not, just ask some one. Everybody knows the grafters, but the people have been too lenient with them. The time has come for the people to strike bribery, and strike it hard. If it is not re buked now your lives and your liberties will be sold before you know it I The Hospitals, Orphan Asylums, Charitable Institutions (both public and private), and all Churches, Schools and Institutions of Learning are the especial prey of the Gas Trust. The Gas Trust has a perpetual monopoly, thanks to the infamous Consolidation and Frontage Bill it purchased at Springfield. Is there no remedy? The Gas Trust robs the Soldiers' Widow. It robs the Orphan. It robs the Aged. It en joys a perpetual monopoly as the result of bribery. Is there no recourse? The Gas Trust-has the impudence to ask the Legislature for a new law this year. The new aw is even worse than the old. It hands the people of Chicago over to the Monopoly body soul and breeches. There are no "flaws" in it! sent to the Semite Warehouse Commit tee, wllh the deliberate purHisit of Imryliic It." The votes of twenty-three Senators continued the statement, as his resolution orderluj: the committee to report the Mil out ut once with a favorable recommendation failed to carry, and unless the Supremo Court decides that the warehouse law Is tin constitutional warehou-eiuen can con tinue to deal lu Kialu which Is in their own bins tor two more years at least. With tho corporations buying tho courts and denying tho people. Justice; with tho corporations buying tho Leg-l-lattiro and depriving tho poopli of their rights, of what use Is a Republic? Excepting China, it would bo hard to find any country where tho extortion practiced by tho Gas Trust ou tho peo ple of Chicago would long bo tolerated. The fins Trust robs thu people In ev ery way. It rents gas ranges to poor people at outrageous prices. It then puts ou ex tra pressure scientifically applied and VOTERS OF CHICAGO! forces air through tho pipes at a great rate. This pressure Is especially strong evenings when supper Is being pre pared. The people pay for wind which costs the Trust nothing. Special assessments for gas lamps go right nloug, hut thu poor people dd not get tho gas ou the streets after they pay their assessments. The Has Trust owns the streets. Tho city has uoth lug to dn with them. The Gns 'I'ri'st Is not furnishing one half the light k s.iould furnish, and for years, nccordlug to published reports, It did not furnish 22-cntidlo power to tho city. It is reported Hint tho (ins Trust Is getting paid for thousands of lamps which are not In service, and this can bo easily verified. Tho most baneful, threatening nnrt dangerous liitlucnce In public life to-day Is In tho shape of tho nil-corrupting corporations, and they ure themselves rapidly giving that fact tho beneiH of public demonstration. Tho only way to securo our politics, our Legislatures and our courts ngalust their polluting Influ ence Is to take the great monopoly they now control out of their hands and ad minister It as a trust for the people. The Ons Trust lias got a now wrinkle for siiicelng the people. It Is the "gas range" scheme, furnished by the gns company. It works well In doubling leoplo's expenses. The gas Is of a poor iunllty and the condition of the gas lamps was never so had. When tho corporations want n law they buy It. When they wnut a ver dict tlit; buy that, too, Where aro wo drifting to'' It will not be long before tho people settle the (Ins Trust. Mark these words. Tho Gas Trust middlemen and go betweens who operated at Springfield two yearn ago am said to have made a nice sum by "holding out" on their victims, tho bribe-taking legislators. Many of theso only got one-third the sum allotted to them. Watch tho Calumet Western, tough, It Is Aldermen who valuo tho good will of the people should heat tho Calumet Western Railway ordinance. to cheap aro tha materials now utsd In tha manufacture of gas that tha oemmodlty oan toe sold at a profit for 3t cents per 1,000 feet for Illuminating purposes and for 30 cents per 1 ,000 feet for fuel. Only a fow aldermen aro In on tho Calumet Western Hallway deal Why uot take them all In? Tho Pabst Ultto Itlbbou German res tauraut and buffet, nt 137 Madison street and 182 and 124 Clark street, ruu y ..j i, ( by those nll-rouud good fellows, Bert Hough and Tony Franker, Is about tho finest place of Its kind lu Chicago. Blnce the opening n fow days ago tho place has been crowded to the guards by the best people In Chicago. Tho best way to fight tho Gas Trust Is to organlzo ward clubs to fight It. lu this way public sentiment can bo roused to fover heat, nud tho bribe giving scoundrels and bribe-taking leg islators will bo drlvcu from Chicago forever! Organize! Organlzo for your rights! Orgaulzo agalust tho Gas Trust which Is sapping tho llfo blood out eC Chicago and which owns Its streots by virtue of legislative bribery! Tho Gas Trust must go. Tho Jury bribers will bo rooted out. Tho Sangamou County Grand Jury ought to summon tho attornoy for tho Armour Interests, roforred to la tho Board of Trade report, . S
