MR. WACKER'S GREAT WORK. Charles H. Wncker, the nblo chair man of tho Chicago Plan Commission, Is doing a great work for tho beau tifying of Chicago and tho improve ment of conditions now existing. Ono of his great objects is to pro vide moro pleasure grounds for tho people. Mr. Wncker, speaking beforo tho council committee, took up tho do feuso of tho comprehensive plan for both an inner and outer park Im provement with four hundred foot la goon. "This is tho plan on 'which wo havo worked for moro than thrco years," ho said. "For about threo years It has been beforo tho city for upproval. It is time for action. It will take at least six years to All in tho COO acres of land which will compose tho Inner park Improvement, figuring that tho work can bo done at tho rate of 100 acres a year. "I stand by tho Chicago plan com mission's rccommendatlous for a com prehensive improvement and I will do so through thick and thin." UTPATEL 18 RIGHT. Tho traction companies make too much dust. A well organized clty-wldo cam paign against dirt and atmospheric pollution was suggested by Alderman Henry Utpatol of tho Fifteenth ward. Ho received support from Aldormen and promises of co-operation from rep resentatives of tho Association of Commerce present. PUT BACK JUDGE BROWN. The voters havo a chanco this year to right a great wrong which was un wittingly committed last year. In tho scramble for tho judicial election last June, Edward Osgood Brown, ono of tho very best judges on tho Circuit and Appellate, benches, was defeated for re-election. Everybody admits that a mistake was made. Judgo Brown should bo elected to tho Su perior court this year. ELECTRIFICATION CAN'T FORCED. BE Chicago has no power to compel electrification of railroads and an or dinance passed by tho City Council to that effect would bo illegal, In the opinion of Harrison B. Riley, pres ident of tho Chicago Titlo and Trust Company, and a member of tho smoko abatement and electrification commit tee of tho Chicago Association of Commerce, which recently presented n roport showing electrification is not feaslblo at tho present tlmo. Mr. Riley addressed the Aldermen at a meeting of tho council commltteo on railway terminals. Alderman W. J. Hcaly brought up tho point as to tho powers of tho city to compel electri fication. "I don't think tho city has tho power," said Mr. Riley. "I am of tho opinion such an ordlnanco would bo Illegal." "But wouldn't electrification of tho suburban service at least bo bene ficial?" queried Alderman Merrlam. "It might bo pleasant for the pas sengers," Mr. Riley replied. "Elec trification is not feaslblo and the city would much better employ a largo and efficient street cleaning forco. As tho report of tho Association of Com merce shows, electrification .would eliminate only 5 per cent of tho so called smoko nuUance. Such a small porcontago of abatement of smoko and cinders as electrification would produce would bo equaled or offset It tho city had a larger street cleaning force. Take tho Illinois Central as an example. No advantage, so far as residences aro concerned, or so far as tho city taken as a whole would bo concerned, would result from electrification." bHIIWTbbbI BVaVJVMHK"Bjr: ,&aBVjVaVBBVBBl t BBBBBBBBBBBaaM; v'W-t flSLBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBl Mm BBTararararaTaVJHi HSJBMb trlBBHBlBBTararararararararararal BBVaTBaVaTBaVer BsVaTr bbbHb!
