Dunne Administration Against the Germans and Their Fine Festivals. MUNICIPAL OWNERSHIP, OH 1 Municipal Ownorehia It t latm for thi Lett of Perianal Liberty. The Munlelpiil Ownership gang Is u sweet scented crowd. Not a word ngalnst the Beef Trust. Not a word ngalnst any other Trust that Is robbing the people. Not n word for good government hi the true sense of the word. Hut plenty of wont of encourago luvnt for the fanatics who would de prive the Ocrinann of their heer at their heautlful nnd harmless festivities. Mayor Dunne and the Muulclpal Ownership crowd stand for high li cense. More than that. Mayor Dunne and the Municipal Ownership crowd Ntnnd ax the avowed enemies of Personal Lib city. The Municipal Ownership crowd would deprlvo cltlxcna of till their rights of all their Personal Liberty. And then they would cheekily link the people to pass their little $75,000, 000 ordinance. This would put the poor taxpayer In the flue M)xltloti of cither giving up nil he Iiuh by not paying additional taxes or giving up all he has by pay tug them. Mayor Dunne nnd tho Munlclpnl Ownership crowd only liavo one object In" view. And that In the possession of 40.000 John that the acquirement of the trac tion linen will give to them. Tho Municipal Ownership Lcuders nre n hungry lot of talent, take them Kingly, or ns a whole. They arc either men out of John or men who desire to boeontlnued In John. The Dunne AdmlulMtratlon, which Ih preeminently a Municipal Owuoridilp administration, has proven Itself to bo ii government of Job hunter,, for tho Job hunters and by tho Job hunter. It Iuih devoted Itself to to Municipal Ownership and the Payroll and to nothing cine. It him "denounced tho Traction Com ' panics with oiio breath ami It hati denounced tho Uormnns with the other breath. Tho Germans of Chicago replied to tlu-, Dunne administration Inst Sunday with tho largest outpouring for .Per gonal Liberty ever seen in Chicago. The largest halU of tho city were It I led to overflowing. Thousands of member of Oermnn Mielctles mareheil to the meeting with bands playing and colon flying. Hut the Dunno ndmliihitratlou moved not. It simply indeed that tho people whom It has InHulted nnd outraged vote oil .TucHttuy next to glvo $73,000, (00 to a lot of Municipal Ownership grnfterH. Will they do It? Wo shall Hce, The Union Traction Company de serves well of tho people of Chicago, nnd In thb handllug and discussion of the traction friinchlso question tho City Council Hhould boar thin fact In mind. Under grout difficulties thlH company Iiuh gone abend nnd given tho pooplo the liest service In Its power. F.ven now when a faction In tho City Council and tho executive bead of the city ndmliihitratlou are rofuxlns to consider even tho granting of u fran chise of a few years, tho Union Trac tion Company stands ready to put Im provements In Its sorvlco that .would be of great benefit to the public, nnd tnke chance upon whether It will cvor hn nblo to reimburse Itself. It will not bo donleci that during the years tho North nnd West Bide Htreet car componleH wero protected by fair and reasonable franchises tho Improvement in tho aervlco of theso ronda wan steady, progressiva nnd rapid. The evolution from tho old horse car aytitem, with Its accompanying In conveulencea, hardships 'and sufferings to tho people, Is within tho rench of tho memory of tho youug men of tho present generation. Tho Improvement and the progress would have been kept up to tho pres ent day nnd the peoplo would now bo ciljoylng first-clnsa up-to-date atreot car service had tho traction companies received anything llko decent treat ment at tho hands of' tho city admin istrations of tho past eight or nluo years? - As wo havo said, oven now under nil tho adverse nnd disheartening .cir cumstances surroundlug them the Un ion Traction tiro willing to ninko great nnd much needed Improvement. They have, for Instance, signified their will limnoss to put In downtown trolley loops and to substitute electricity for the antiquated cable, but for some ex traordinary nnd apparently Inexplic able reason the city administration re fuses the permit. Other temporary Improvements have been offered frequently, but have been a frequently refused. Those who nre responsible for this delay mid consequent hardships upon the public will have to give an account ing for It to the people at tho polls In the near future. Under the nblo management of Messrs. Kckel and Hiimpoll, the receiv ers of the company, nnd of President John M. Itonch, there has been shown every dlsiosltlon since this discussion arose to treat the public fairly, and to concede every rensonablo nnd practi cable demand made upon them. Could anything bo fairer than the following features which Is contained In the offer of the company in return for a'twenty-year franchise: All rights, Including the nliiety-nlno year claim, to end with tho twenty year term. Compensation to the city of .1 jkt cent of the company's gross receipts for the first three years, 0 per cent for the next two years, 7 icr cent the next ten years and 10 per cent for the last five years. City license fees nnd nil franchise taxes to be deducted from the compen sation. "Five-cent faro with transfers be tween the North, West and South Hide north of 12th street. Through cars as proitosed by the Chicago City Hallway Company, over head trolley outside of the downtown district and underground trolley In that district If required and shown satisfactory In a test. General reconstruction of tho prop erty. Hondholdera to bo paid out of pur chase price If tne city buys tho lines. Tunnels under tho Chicago river to be lowered by the companies at their exKuc. These tiro but tho loading features of tho Union Traction Company's of fer. The details aro also full of Impor tant and generous offers, such na the exMndlturo of large sums dl money In putting in new rolling stock com prising cars of tho most comfortable and handsome construction, provisions for tho heating and tho overcrowding of cars and the comfort of tho passen gers generally, removal ot snow from all streets along which tho right of way runs, the paving of the street nnd the sprinkling of the samo between tho tracks, tho Installation of tho grooved rail for tho protection of tho pave ments and ninny other propositions of a comparatively minor character. This offer Is tho outcome of careful study on tho part of Hon. James II. h'ckcls, who In his capacity as receiver, has displayed that executlvo ability and business genius that have rendered him famous throughout tho commercial nnd political world. In, this work ho baa been ably sec onded by President John M. Roach, u man who has risen to tho top rank of the officials of this corporation by Integrity, Industry and sterling busi ness quality. In tho work which thoso gentlemen have been doing they have displayed not nlono(n .commondablo dcxlro to bring n long drawn out, tedious nnd almost disastrous discussion to n satis factory close, but also a strong dis position to accomplish this In tho way best calculated to benefit of the general public. Should tho Council see lit to co-oporatb with them, they will bo doing much for tho building up of tho North nnd West Sides, 1ho Im provement of business and tho en hancement of prqperty values In both these divisions. It Is tho duty of all good citizens to glvo to Mr. Eckels, Mr. Sampsell and Mr. Itonch their moral support in this laudable effort. It Is' tho duty of tbo peoplo to soo to It that their represen tatives In tbo City Council shall do tho same, and to bring to book sternly nnd promptly all of these latter who re fuse to do so, ' b On Tuesday next there will bo an alderman elected lu every ward In tho city. Tho voter must take' great core In Meeting tbo candidate ho Is going to vote for. Thore are nil kinds of men running. Gangsters, cheap reformora and men who havo no ability whatso ever for tho office. On tho other hand, thero nre men running who will make splendid aldermen. Conscientious, "hon est, braluy ,men. Tho voter must choose between grafters, chonp eon men and true, fearless men who will work for tho best Interests of tho whole city. Tho peoplo nro becoming tlrod of see ing tho men they elect aldermen neg lect their wards, voto for anything that comes along and never do anything for their constituents who elected them. Heat; Canned Goods Twenty-first, Eagle In the I.M.O. HUMBUG TIRES People Are Tired of the Rant ing of the Job Hunting Cranks. BEAT THE DEMAGOGUES. Tha Taxpayer Themselves Have Some Rights that Should la Observed. That tho overwhelming sentiment of tho general public la In favor of an Immediate settlement of tho traction question and opposed to any further parleying, humbug nnd buncombe over the Impossible fad, "Immcdluto Muni cipal Ownership," Is now plain to all who havo eyes to see and ears to hear. That prospective candidates for tho Council In next Tuesday's election, as well ns the party leaders on both sides who nre possessed of wisdom, discre tion and tho ability to get In touch with the public pulse, nre awnro of this Is evident from the preparations made for this election. The peoplo have had their eyes open ed since Inst April. They havo witnessed tho pitiful ef forts of an honest but misdirected nnd Illy Informed man whom they elected on tho platform of Immediate Munici pal Ownership of tie street railways to keep pledges which ho mado in good faith, but which he found himself ab solutely unable to cany out The people hare found that tho trac tion question has been played with simply to make campaign buncombe, that they havo been hoodwinked, that they have been mado to suffer physi cal discomfort and untold financial loss by being kept chasing after n will o' tbo wisp held up to tbolr gazo by scheming politicians, olllco-seekors and demagogues. Hence it Is not likely that very many of the thlrty-flvo candidates for nldermnnlu honors this spring will run upon an luimcdlnto ownership plat form. If any should try It they will have cause to ruo It. It Is tho opinion of every man on both aides of the political fenco that hardly a single candidate for tho thirty to be elected aldermen will bo nn Im mediate Municipal Ownership man. Thoso views nro shared by scores of others. A prominent citizen had this to say: "Tho peoplo will turn out nt tho polls and sweep from the field every candi date who has tho temerity to run upon the ridiculous Immediate ownership platform." Another, speaking through' tbo col umns of a contemporary, said : "I bollovo that tho successful candi dates for aldermen this sprlngwlll till rtand upon tho samo platform In rela tion to tho most Important question now confronting tbo city voters. It would bo wlso for tho peoplo to adopt a policy that has tho greatest certainty of producing early and satis factory reforms lu tho street car serv ice. It Is now well understood that tho party of Municipal Ownership, so called, really cares .for tho ownership of the streets only as it can manipulate the street car employes for political purposes." This has tho right ring to It; It truly expresses tho general condition of pub lic sentiment to-day, nnd Is gospel truth, every word of It. What Is truo of tho Republican par ty Is truo also of tho Democratic party. Loaders and candidates on both sides will do well to remember this spring, should tho traction question bo then unsolved, that, what tbo people want Is not a lot of nonsenso noout Immediate Municipal Ownership, but Immediate settlement of this question. To all thinking persons, all at least who have followed the progress and de velopment of this question, there real ly seems ,to bo no reason why It should rot bo settled oven before tho alder uinule campaign of this spring. Thero Is nothing that tho people bnvo demanded either in public mass meetings or through their representa tives In tho city government that has not been couccded by tho traction com panies. Universal transfers, ap-to-date atreot tar sorvlco, oomfortabio cars and plen ty of them, rapid transit, handsomo re numeration to tho city, courteous and careful treatment of tho public by tho companies' employes, streets along the right of way sprinkled and swept In summer, and tho snow and slush re moved In winter; all thoso and other advantages which havo been enumer ated In previous editions of this paper nro guaranteed tho peoplo In return for a frnnchiso of rensonablo length. Everybody who has given tbo mat ter any study or attention knows that If tho city could own tho street railway companies to-morrow It could not give the public any such servliv ns this, nor could It do so In the course of twen ty years to come, If ever nt nil. Tbo enormous expense of acquiring the property and rolling slock of the com panies would simply swamp 'the city, and then If It over did get the sys tem Into working order It Is ten chances to one that It would be In the hands of n lot of hoodlum hangers-on of political parties who would give the people the kind of service they have been mod to for years at tho City Hall, and who would probably steal tbc sys tem, the city and public blind. The people should vote to have the traction companies In tho hands of traction nfllflfit tvlin urn fnllr nliln nnd capable of running the lines. They should vote down tho $75,000. 000 proposition next Tuesday, which would turn the lines nnd their em ployes Into II tol!tlcnl office holding inn. chine. Then they should give the companies; n franchise for a reasonable period on the pople's terms. The citizens of Chicago are tired of the reactionary and dllntorv motlimiM of their municipal officials, and there is growing rapidly n sentiment that must result In action on the part of tho Kople nt the sills in flic near future that will give them relief from the Intolerable conditions nrmim.i i,v tbo pranks and scheme of political mountebanks. One of the bad conditions produced by the unsettled condition r Init-.i. mural transit In this city Is that the uty Council Is ho taken up and occu pied In wrestllmr and im-cllns with the question that It now seems to ar rest all the attention nnd all the time of the city fathers, to the exclusion of all other matters of municipal govern ment mid legislation. There was n time when the popular catch cry was "The streets Munir t the people." To-day the condition of the streets would Indicate that they belong to no body. Through the prolonged nnd tiresome scutlle between the mayor nnd the council the public suffers and suffers sorely. Not nlono In the matter of street car transportation, hut In other considera tions and conditions arising out of Its unsettled state, tho general public are tbo losers. For Instance, If the traction question went settled tho corporations owning nnd operating the system would pave their right of way, and possibly all of tbo streets umii which their right of way lay from curb to curb. This In Its way Is a sorlou consider ation for every property owner ami taxpayer, and, Indeed, for every rest dent of every part of this city. It In vohes the question of easy travel for teams and thus of the expeditious con duct of tho trnllli: of our great bus! lies houses. It Involve tbo Interest of tho wngo workers mid breadwin ners, thousands of whom nro dally put In peril of losing the chanco to earn tho bread and butter that they and their families need, beeauso scheming politicians want another chanco to make election catch cries nnd cnm. palgu Issues out of the people's neces sities mat nro never provided for. Remember u few things when you hear the demagogues tniU: Tho street railway comnnnle hnvo mado tho city a fair offer and, through mo city Coiiucl . a fa r offer to tint people. Ill consideration of n reiisnnnhln franchise that will guaranteo to tho companies some return for tho enor mous outlay they proiwso to make tho peoplo will get: Rapid transit, furnished b- un.tn. date electrical equipment. i-.iegautly and comfortably enulnnod cars, warm In winter and airy lu sum mer. Tho most rensonablo rutea of faro possible. A now system of rail (tho grooved) that, will protect tho navomonts from the vandal teamsters and save tho tax paiers and property owners thousand of dollars. Clean streets (winter and summer). streets sprinkled lu Hummer (over tho railway company's rhrut of wnv). on. erous compensation to tho city for Its frnnehlso, tho compensation bolng a pcrcentngo ou an Increasing scalo upon tno company's cam uss ud to tho end of Its frnnchiso; courteous ami careful treatment of nassennera and mnnv other minor yet Important considera tions. Tho Union Traction and Chicago City Companies havo mado an eqally ac coptablo offer and between both com. patties an agreement has bcon reached WiUcn guarantees to tho passenger n transfer system that will carry him from nny point on any of tho tiireo shies of tho city to any other point on nny of tho other two for ono faro. In other words, a transfer system that will carry n passenger from tho WettrSldo to nny point on tho North or South Sldo for ono faro, and vlco versa. PAY ROLL PATRIOTS! Municipal Ownership Will In crease Their Number by Tens of Thousands. VOTE AGAINST $75,000,000. lueineee Men ef Chicago Point Out the Dangere that Menace the City. Are tho people of Chicago prepared to vote $75,000,000 to tho city adminis tration to pay for nnd create 40,000 new Jobs? We should hope not. There nro many reaon why they ought not to vote for such n scheme. In another column we have shown how the Personal Liberty loving peo plo of Chicago havo been treated by the Municipal Ownership administration. In this column wo give the views of the leading business men of Chicago on the subject. Memtierx nnd guests of tho City Club were stirred by two vigorous assaults on tho city's ability to manage the street car lines. "It Is my honest opinion that the city government of Chicago, as It Is ((instituted to-day, I not able to run nn Inkstand," said Franklin MncVengh. "The street railways now employ nn average of not less than 11.000 men." said Kiigcno I'. Prusslng, president of the Citizen's Association. "Going Into this new business means almost dou bling the size of the administration without hope of Increasing tho nblllty of the mayor In proportion, nnd also placing 11,000 votes Into tho scale to turn any election lu which these voters believe they have 'a special Interest adverse to the city. What will n weak candidate for tho mayoralty not promise them openly or secretly? The will of the citizens of Chicago will bo defeated at the elections and their lib erties constantly endangered." An I. M. O. talkfcst was the order ef the afternoon, and It was productive of one of the most nulmntcd discus sions the club ever had. No speakers were announced, every ono had an op portunity, mid lines of controversy were distinctly drawn rrom the llrst. William Kent had hardly tlulshed his remarks, which opened the meet ing, when Mr. l'russlm; enme forward with a few hot shots, mid the tight was on. Later lu the meeting. Mr. MaeVeagh anil Frank .1, Loesch vigor ously seconded Mr. Prusslng's re marks. "Wo nro asked." said Mr. Prmslng. "to furnish certain gentlemen ntoiico with n credit of i?7r.,000.000 to expend according to their Ideas and abilities lu tho stroet railway buslues. These gentlemeli comprise tho present city ndmiiilxtratlou, headed by Muyor Dunne." Mr. MaeVeagh delivered n sweeping denunciation of tbo city government us a business organization "I nm not u cnriwr," ho said, "but I maintain and nm bound to maintain that, not under Mayor Dunne alone, but under no mayor, has thero ever boon n single scintilla of buslues effi ciency shown by tho city government of Chicago, "Tho responsibility for tho Ineffably bad street car sorvlco which wo havo In Chicago must bo divided between the traction company and this Ineffably bad government of ours. You cannot, In my Judgment, charge wholly to the traction companies tho responsibility for this sltuatlon.whlch has aroused the peoplo to n consideration of the question of Municipal Ownership. And In this fact resides tho reason why I can sen no hopo of nny practical vuluo lu tho complete control and operation of theso properties by tho municipality." That tho Mueller Inw Is a snnro and a delusion nnd never can bo sustained by tho courts was argued by Aid. Mil ton J, Foreman In a debnto on Munici pal Ownership at n luncheon glveu by tho Iroquois Club. Ho declared that In tho event of Mu nicipal Ownership being adopted the city of Chicago would bo iv loser In tbo largo amount of taxes now paid by the traction companies. "Has it over occurred to you that tho city, county nnd sanitary district will lose tho largo amount of money now pnld In tnxes by the traction compa nies?" nskod Aid. Foreman. "Tho com panies certainly will not contlnuo to pay taxes after tboy havo been ousted from tbo streets." Wo do not wish to, bo understood as questioning tho honosty, porsonal In tegrity, or tho earnest deslro of Mayor Dunno to do tho best ho can for tho peoplo according to his lights, but we do claim that his efforts thus far In regard to tho sottlomeiit of tho traction proves that ho looks at It through strange spectacle. Evidently the mayor, for one thing, regard the trac tion question ns something that ho I bound to deliver to tho public upon the basis of an Impossible promise, and having delivered It In that way, like a foundling at n door step, run nwuy and leave the peoplo to handle It us best they can. Any old way to give the people the ownership of tho street car system even though It were to leave them then to dandle a white elephant on their bunds, evidently would pleae the con sciences of the mayor's political ad visors. The point In this connection, how ever, is that no surer method could bo adopted of destroying the future polit ical ambitions of the mayor and hi i lieutenants than to hand tho public a gold brick of this kind. A we have said the people want de cent nnd expeditious street car serv ice. They want what ha licen offered them by tho City Hallway and Union Traction Companies, the gist of which liai been published hi the column of th's nnd other newspaper. When they havo secured till they will bo In a mood to consider tbo ways and mean of securing municipal own ership of these nnd other public utili ties lu a reasonable, rational ami prac tical way. Vote against Muulclpal Ownership candidates for alderman. Of course wo have still n fair-sized minority of the demagogue mid tho political sail trimmer among the city fathers, but thero Is tho satisfactory evidence, notwithstanding this, that thero is a working majority In the City Council of sensible, practical men, who nre prepared to brush nslde buncombe and nonsense nnd give the peoplo what they want In tho premises llrst-clnss street car service. The iR'opIo nre tired of groping mound after the intangible in this matter. They are sick of hot nlr and platform platitudes. They have been told that they own the streets, nnd nt the same time have been dragged tliioucb them "through mud nnd mire" In antiquated vehicles over u system that has been tied up, the meshes spiead by campaign wire pullers. They have been sooiifed on Municipal Ownership nnd physicked with tenta tive ordinances nnd contract plans. They nre through with It all. Traction buncombe Is "busted" nt last. The Credit Men's Association gavo the Municipal Ownership fad a few hard raps at Its dinner and monthly meeting tho other day. Among tho Ideas given expression on this occasion were a few lively ones tlit aro do H'l'vlng". of consideration and that should occupy a few or the spare mo ments -of Mayor Dunne, esH'elally when "far from the madding crowd" that constitute the Council gallery. One of these Is ns follows: "The Idea of Municipal Ownership Is llko Mho measles, once contracted, It must run Its course." This Incidentally causes the hope that the city "administration may soon be cured." Another statement enthusiastically applauded and Indorsed was: "Ten representative business men of this city endowed with honesty and brains could meet with the heads of the traction companies and within twenty-four hours devise n means of deposing of tho traction problem lu a maimer that would bring substantial returns to tho city and protect Its In terests forever.' Still another was ns follows : ".Municipal Ownership Is the cry of the hungry Socialist, the labor agita tor, the anarchist, and tho man who does not pay any taxes. To tho think ing man who has property and hold ings of nny character whatever tho prospect of paying out money to keep In employment a lot of jsilltlcal heel er Is anything but promlsliiK." These aro thoughts that aro worthy or the consideration of nil citizens who have tho Interests of tho community tit heart, and whllo some might con sider them perhaps n uttlo radical, they ot tho sumo tlmo aro tho emana tions of an organization of reputnblo business men of responsibility nnd standing. If you hnvo lost your Personnl Lib erty lu Chicago under presont condl tlnus you will bo a slavo when thero aro 40,000 more oflleo holders. ,Wo hnvo nn I. M. O. administration.

What will you do when that nut of n gang run your street cai'sV Loavo your money and Jewelry nt homo Is'foro you hoard ono of them. For Municipal Ownership In Chicago entitles Its advocates to npptopiinto anything. A ROARING FARCE! Some People Thought that High License Meant More Police for Protection. RAISE SALARIES INSTEAD. City Hall Job Holier the Main eneficiaries of the Whole Scheme. Instead of giving Chicago n great in crease In Its police force ns Its advo cate assorted, the high license ordi nance and the money derived from It have been used to rnlso the salaries of a lot of City Hall barnacles. "Kverylsxly who voted for that meas ure on tbo square Intended the addi tional funds should go to tho clty'i protection, nnd not to n lot of 'stiffs' who havo been feeding nt the clty'H crib for thirty years or more," snld one of the aldermen who supported It. There never was any reason why tho traction companies should have been refused an opisirtunlty to give the pub lie the good transiortatton service which tho establishment of n down town loop system would mean, Just na there never was any reason why tho people should be Inlllcted with Inade quate street car service generally, ex ci'Pt for the purpose of giving the Job holders it perpetual opportunity to hold their place at tho public crib. ,, We have said that other public ltn provemeiits hud been delayed and side tracked by this Interminable discussion over the traction mntter. Tho paving of the street to which wo have re ferred Is a case lu H)lnt. ' There are others. Tho companies offer to remove the snow from tho streets lu which lies In their right of way. Tills means the cleaning of tho stieets during the winter mouths, which means half the year lu Chi cago. If the city should own and oper ate the streets Instead of tho present eoriHirntlons, It would have to cleau and pave them nt tho exHnse of tho taxpayers. Do tho peoplo reallzo what this means? Tho streets nro unpaved and unclean now. ami If the city should burden itself with tho traction busi ness, it would be expected to live up to, at leant, tho offer ot tho present com panies. This would mean greatly Increased taxation of property owners, u largely increased City Halt payroll, nnd no guarantee that tho lucrcaxo of tho pub lic expense would even result In par tial execution of tbo work which the street car companies offer to do nt their own expense. Everybody knows how tho taxpay ers' Interests nre attended to, nnd their work done by tho City Hall payroll brigade. All business men and property own ers aro Interested In tho tiro service of the city. Insurnneo rotes, for Instance, nro kept up at ruinously IiIkIi stand ards beeauso of tho horrible condition of the street paving and tho Inability, on that account, of tho tiro department to do Its duty to the full extent of Its undoubted efficiency under unhampered conditions. William Tliilan of the Twenty-first Ward, ono of tho brightest youug Dem ocrats In Chicago, Is a candidate for the Legislature. Mr. Tliilan richly reserves tho nomination on account of hi past services to tho party, and If nominated ho will bo elected. Fatfle, tho man with tbo Canned (loods Smile, would make a poor Alder man.
