TAXPAYERS START CAR SUIT!
VOLUME 23 p)^§) A 'Caldwell Opinion. Suggestions for City. An Active Counsel. No Shrinking Violet. Anew PATS AGO The SUr had occasion to remark that Mayor Hugh M Caldwell is "no shrinking violet who la too timid to let himself be heard " The Star made this statement In connection with CaJ«i well's uncritical altitude towards the f!5.0$0.000 rail way deal at the time the proposition waa put forth. Caldwell waa then corporation counsel of Seattle and wa| a member of the conferenoe that d**»t with the railway problem In I*lS and at which the $15,000,000 of frr was made by the city. Caldwell was not there merely as a spectator lie was there because he had been active In such matters, becuuse he was the city's legal ad* vtaer. and because he was reputed not to be afraid of raising his voice. it need be. on matters of policy. DIDVT SHt'T HUIBBLF VP IN inn emcK Catdweli was not the ktnd of a cor poration counsel who »hut himself up in hta office and said he was a lawyer and would be glad to render legal opinion*, and do nothing else. He was far more energetic than that. Thus it is that on June 28. 1918. more than two months before th© final railway conference, we find an article In a Seattle paper entitled: "Suggests Plan to End Traction Troubles-—Corporation Counsel Hugh M Caldwell Outlines Steps Toward Peace With Company." It seem* that Caldwell volunteered a lot of advice to the then mayor and city council In a letter which follows: "On April 21. if it. the FugM 9*un4 Traction.
