THE OMfOAOO CACIl
1.1 I 'I fc MB CAR SERVICE The Chicago Railways Company Is Either Badly Managed or It Is Culpably and Wilfully Inefficient. Mayor Harrison voiced the sentl ment of the people of Chicago on tho awful atreet car service. Is his annual message to the city council the mayor denounced condl tlona as "uncomfortable, Insanitary, and Immoral." Me charged that the city's over crowded cars are "an offense against decency, a danger to health, and an affront to the Intelligence of good clt Itenshlp." "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 $2,529,033 considered In connection with tho con ditions which thousands of patrons are daily forced to endure, affords con vlnolng proof that health, comfort, and even decency itself are sacrificed to the Insatiable rapacity of the cash drawer. "There should be some recognition of the rights of the public, there should be a llttlo common sense, a touch of generosity and a bit of hu man feeling, If you will, on the part of the corporation managers." Speaking of home rule In utilities Mayor Harrison said In his message: "It seems strango that In this day question should be raised In any quar ter of the right of this great city to demand the exclusive Jurisdiction over Its local affairs. The public utilities of Chicago live by virtue of tho power given them by the city; from tho vigor, the energy, the prosperity, the activity of our people they draw their very life's blood. The city deals fairly with them. If It failed to do so tho courts would compel fair treatment. "We maintain that tho citizens of this community who day by day, year in and year out, are brought Into In timate contact with local public utility corporations are better ablo to Judge of the needs of the community and what It has within reason tho right to expect and require than any outside agency," aft- CREAM OF MALT BEER It BMWID SOLELY 1$UESttBg BY THI J.

"My complaints against tho com panies apply to tho service outside of tho rush hours," said Export Duck ley. "Everyone knows that tho con ditions during tho rush hours aro appalling, but during thoso hours, tho companies aro probably running all tho cars thoy can. "It Is a shameful breach of faith with tho public, howover, when the companies between tho rush hours leave cars standing In the barns be causo thoy aro too mean to hire mo tormen and conductors to run them, and subject tho public to long watts and excessive overcrowding at hours of tho day and night when no pas senger need bo a straphanger, and when all could be accommodated with seats."

Ninety-six children have been bitten by unmuzzled dogs In Chicago slnco January 1. After licking their chops at tho Phono banquet, Chicago aldermen lmto to loso good picking. The water meter grart Is bobbing Its head up again. It is proposed to tax every lot In Chicago from $200 to $500 for water motors, besides the great expense It will entail upon all users of water. Chicago has an Immense water fund. If part of It waa devoted to wards building pumping stations at tho lake end of every section line In Chicago thero would be no water fam ine anywhere. It Is astonishing what men the water meter people can Influence to their way of thinking. Somo men who ought to know bet ter ore talking for water meters. Moro than that tho "high pressure" schemo is up again. According to some advocates It will only cost thirty or forty millions of dollars to Install motors and a "high pressure" system. The poor will have to pay tho cost. With half this sum additional pump ing stations could be built which would more than supply the demand. A well known engineer who was ad vocating "high prcsuro" and water motors said tho other day, according to dally papers, that one of the chief troubles In Chicago was the very high consumption of water, which averaged about 2,000 gallons per capita dally, caused largoly by waste and under ground leakago from broken connec tions. As a remedy for waste ho recommended water meters. The test of the water pressure made In the loop shows an Insufficient pressure, but he said that the. city was install ing a large number of water mains, none undor eight Inches, and these would materially Improve the pres sure. The health of the city demands plenty of water for everybody. The InstalKa of meters would limit U"i consumption of water and rals' e price of living on the poor. higher rates would have to be narged In the residence districts and tenants would have to pay the water rates after the landlords had paid an exorbitant rate for Installing water meters. This form of graft Is particularly objectionable to Chicago people. They will not stand for it It bits everybody and It la unnecessary. If. If.
