ship of Mreet car lines In Chicago. There
are contingencies under which municipal
ownership Is yet possible, but the time
when they could be worked out Is re
mote. 'Hie decision was the long-awaited
word lu the case which challenged the
legality of the (T.'.OOD.OOO worth of Muel

decided ngalnst the certificate. In doing
so It practical)' mado the law Itself In
operative. Tho Mueller law still stands
Intact, but the means of putting It Into
effect, so far as Chicago Is concerned,
have been taken away from It. The city
may own and operate street car lines if
It ever shall want to. but the method of
getting tho money with which to buy, or
build them has been taken away from It.
