Mayor Harrison tolced the tentl eat of the people of Chicago on the awfal atreet car service. la kls annual manage to the city council the mayor denounced condi tions as "uncomfortable. Insanitary. and immoral."- , He charged that the city's over crowded cars are "an offense against decency, a danger to health, and an afroat to the Intelligence of good clt Itenahlp." . "This Indictment," he said, "lies against both surface and elevated lines. The almost staggering total of the city's share of the net receipts of the surface lines for 1912 $2,629,033 considered In connection with the con dltlons which thousands of patrons are dally forced to endure, affords con Tlnclng . proof that health, comfort, and even decency Itself are sacrificed to the Insatiable rapacity of the cash drawer. "There should be some recognition of the rights of the public, there should be a little common sense, a touch of generosity and a bit of hu man feeling, If you will, on the part of the corporation managers." Speaking of home rule In utilities Mayor Harrison said In his message: "It seems strange that In this day question should be raised in' any quar ter of the right of this great city to demand the exclusive Jurisdiction over Its local affairs. The publlo utilities of Chicago live by virtue of the power given them by the city; from the vigor, the energy, the prosperity, the activity of our people thoy draw their very life's blood. The city deals fairly with them. If It failed to do so tho courts would compol fair treatment. "Wo maintain that the citizens of this community who day by day, year in and year out, are brought Into In timate contact with local public utility corporations are better ablo to Judgo of the needs of tho community and what It has within reason tho right to expect and require than any outside agency."

City Traction Ex pert Buckley haa made formal com plaint of the awful service given the publlo by this concern. In his report he summarises con ditions on some of the lines as fol lows: Clark Street Line Through route cars only; north and south bound cars crowded far beyond capacity between 10:60 a. m. and 3:02 p. m. North Avenue 10:30 a. m. to 10:50, cars with a capacity to carry forty carrying from forty-threo to sixty pas sengers. Madison Street Loaded far beyond capacity when many moro cars could bo run. Ventilation poor; cars well heated. Kedzlo Avcnuo Through route No. 17, cars operating twelve minutes apart and crowded. Halsted Stroot Fifty-eight to nine ty passengers 10:30 to 11:54 a. m. Not enough cars at other times. Milwaukee Avenue Line Over crowding because not enough cars are run. Chicago Avenue Line--Forty-five to alxty-flvo passengers clinging to straps or herded on .platforms in cars, besldo forty In scats, 0:25 to 11 a. m. and 7:30 to 10:30 p. m. Lake Street Line Long Intervals botween cars; elghty-flvo to 110 pas sengers crowdod Into them In mlddlo forenoon, mldattornoon and ovonlng. Conditions bad at all hours. Grand Avonue Lino Forty passon- gors seated; forty-flvo to sixty stand ing, somo holding to straps, 0:30 a. m. to 4:30 p. m. Twelfth Street Lino Long Inter vals botween cars; fifty to sixty pas sengers standing besides those In seats, at all hours of forenoon, aft ernoon and evening. Evanston Avenue Line Schedule disregarded and cars run Infrequent ly; from forty to fifty passengers standing at hours before and after the morning and evening rush. Wells-Sheffield Line Cara run at Infrequent Intervals; ' from forty-five to seventy persons standing at hours between the so-called rush periods. "My complaints against the com panies apply to the service outside of the rush hours," said Expert Duck ley. "Everyone knows that the con ditions during the rush hours are appalling, but during those hours, the companies aro probably running all the cars they can. "It is a shameful breach of faith with the public, however, when the companies between the rush hours leave cars standing in the barns be cause they are too mean to hire mo tormen and conductors to run them, and subject the publlo to long waits and excessive overcrowding at hours of the day and night when no pas senger need be a straphanger, and when all could be accommodated with seats." KAQLETB. North Side elevated service is a joke. Taxes will bo 75 per cent higher next year, thanks to the aldermen who bellovo In soaking tho public. In John E. Owens tho people of Cook County havo an able, honest and conscientious County Judge. flfL TSKTffjl: Htrn'- it?i!r f 1BBFbY'I f MP.
