it was agreed that the names of
these non-union clients should not be
mado publ(c until later In tile Investiga
tion, "
Wnyne MncVelgh set out to grill
Mitchell again todny. He said Mitchell
Was; morally- responsible for disorders
during the strike, because he failed to
check It. Mitchell sajd In answer that
ho was always on the side of law and
order and that he know that acts of vio
lone1 hurt his cause.
''I call your attention to this state
ment," said MacVelsh. "While the right
to enter upon a strike Is and must be
conceded as a right belonging to the"
personal freedom of worklngmon. this
must ever be demanded,'' that they who
do not want to work must in no way
Interfere with the liberties of others
who wish to work. Personal freedom
of an individual citizen Is the most
sacred and precious inheritance."
"Do jroui assent to that proposition."
Mitchell: "No, sir; It Is a contradic
tion of every principle of American
government, tho right of man to do
whatever he chooses. We do not want
anarchy and that is anarchy pure nnd
simple, for man to do whotever he
pleases regardless of ffect on society."
MacVejghi "This (s the language of
a very carefully disguised anarchist,
for it is the language of Archbishop
Ireland."
"It might be Interesting to know that
Archbishop Ireland Is a member of
a committee of which I was a member
which hag declared for trade agree

confused. -

OPPOSED
To Order Issued
by Board.
Council Not Disposed
to Change
A., B. & C. Schedule
on North Hill.
Wilhelm Fired a Hot Shot at the
Solicitor.
The order issued by the City Com
missioners to the N. O. T. Co., to the
effect that north-bound A., B. & C.
con. must not be stopped on North
Howa-rd St., between Cuyahoga st., and
the top of the hill, met with so much
opposition nt Council meeting Mon
day evening that tho RafUoad and
Bridge committee will investigate.
Council Sawyer drew a word picture
of taxpayers and their wives trudging
wearily up North Hill, while public
conveyances whizzed by on a right
of vny obtained 'free, and In'thls posi
tion he was ably supported by Mr.
Wilhelm.
'After this company was ghen a
franchlbe to occupy tho street, upon Its
agreeing to serve the public well and
stop at every principal crossing, it
seems wrong for the Boaul nt the re
quest of the street car company, to
issue an older that cars shall not be
stopped at every crossing,'' safd Mr.
Sawyer.
, Solicitor Bsgate said that the A., B.
& C. cars came Into Akron, not so
much under a franchise as. they did
under a contract, and that the BoaTd
had a right to issue such orders, as
a matter of police regulation. "This
Is a case of the greatest good to
the greatest numuer," he said. "No
one will dispute the statement that the
North Hill lino is a dangerous pro
position, and the act of the Board Is
a precautionary measure."
Mr. Wilhelm said: "I am not dis
posed to attach much weight to tho
advice of our Solicitor In this mat
tor. He bcems. to be acting In this
matter more in the Interests of tho
street car couipimy than In the in
terests or the city."
"That's not so," .replied Solicitor Es
gate. "I hnvp done my best to ex
plain tho situation, and I havo re
ferred to the legal points Just-as they
exist."
Mr. Sam J, Hlbbb. of Dean af., also
piotested against the order.
The N. O. T. Co. claims that It Is
dangerous to stop the cars while go
ing up tho hill, because It is hard
to start them again, and thre Is also
danger of breaking the machinery of
tho car, In which case the car would
run back down, the hill.
But the Councilmeii seem to be of tho
opinion that the N. O. T. Co. should
provide oil the necessary safety ap
pliances for pais, so that such ac
cidents coujd not occur. They Insist
that It would bq wiong to deny the
citizens of North Hill tho pilvilege
of riding tq their homes, nnd that
the company should live up to the
terms of Its franchise. ;
