Most people in South Chicago and the thirty-third ward seem to think that the Kensington & Kastein road put one over on the people of South Chicago and the two local aldermen when the road was granted a temporary permit to lay its tracks through the south end of the two adjoining wards. As a matter of fact, in granting this tem porary permit, it giveh the local ald ermen the whip hand and they are now in line to get any concessions they want from the Illinois Central road, which owns the Kensington & East ern road. Temporary Permit. The temporary permit which wai granted is only effective until Dec. 1. If at that time the transportation com mittee, of which Alderman Moynihaa is the head, does not see fit to grant them a regular permit, the company will be compelled to tear up its tracks. To do this would mean throwing out the established service of the Kensing ton & Eastern and Chicago, Lake Shore & South Bend roads. Before the local aldermen will sign a petition asking for a regular permit the company will be asked to grant a few concessions to the residents of the two wards. Want Teu Cent Fore. One thing that Alderman Moynihan, will demand of the Illinois Central road is a ten cent fare to and from downtown, protection of the right of way and improvement of their cross ings and buildings in South Chicago. In the thirty-third ward the alder men, headed by Ernest Bihl. will ask that the company erect an up-to-date suburban depot at Kensington, put gates at the One Hundred and Thir teenth street crossing, dedicate Front street as a public thoroughfare, and also remove the unsightly sheds that now stand on the company's premises. Road In All HiKht. Hut While the Kensington & Eastern road means one of the biggest booms for the Calumet region, the aldermen, backed up by the people, are deter mined to see that they are not handed a lemon by the corporation, and before the company secures its desired fran chise it will be necessary to come across and spend a few thousand dol lars in bettering its trackage and buildings through the Calumet region.
