one of thi moat tonae tituMion* in
a noted criminal case, four men
were peremptorily challenged by

Inscrutable smile on hie fsce,

SURE FIX THE BLAME
Hi the responsibility. ,
This Is a demand now being v lgorou*iy voiced by 'he agent* of
big business In connection with the accident to the Cedar river pip*
Use.
The people, too, want the responsibility fixed.
The people want to know whether or not the pipe line was
washed oit BECAUSE THE MILWAUKEE RAILROAD CHANGED
THE COURSE OF THE RIVER.
And If that Is the rase, tbe p«ople want to plar« the blame where
it belongs
Who allowed the Milwaukee to change the river's course?
The answer Is a former city council, which listened to the cry of
some of tbe big business larkles who ar« now yelling tbe loudest
In an effort to throw the people off the true scrnt
The franchise of the Milwaukee In tbe Cedar river watershed
was father*!, was urged upon the city council, was practically forc
ed through the elty council by the old Seattle Chamber of Commerce.
It waa popularly known at the city hall as a chamber of Commerce
franchise. It was bitterly opposed at all times by City Kuginewr
Thomson and by Mayor Moore, because It threatened the Integrity
of tbe city water supply.
Tht responsibility, therefore, traces directly back to the Chamber
of Commerce and the agents In that body of franchise grabbing and
big business exploitation.
Now those agents are complaining that municipal ownership Is a
failure. They are trying to saddle on municipal ownership a crime
committed by franchise-grabbing private ownership.
Damage Done by Milwaukee
Just Begun, Says Thomson
The damage caused te the city's
water system by the Milwaukee
railroad hae just begun.
The bridge now being built will
not be safe arter this winter.
Cedar river will continue to
change its course for the next 25
years, rendering the water nsains
unsafe.
The only solution Is a tunnel to
carry the maine underground.
This Is the opinion expressed by
former City Engineer Thomson
this morning, on his return from
Swan lake.
Mr Thomson stated that tbe
Cedar rlv«T had charmed Its bod
entirely as a result of the flood.
"The old channel I* filled with
sand files wero driven there

SUIT AGAINST

Seattle and R. J. Oliver of Bremer
ton against the Pacific Coast Con

The latter are charged with con
spiring to maintain fixed prices In
