VOLUME 23 Lines Badly Managed, Costs Creep Up. Real Loss Appears. Why? WHY! WHY? IF THERE haa been fraud or cor ruption, the city I* entitled to re lief from the Stone-Webster contract. No one questions that, and no one can question that. Has there been fraud? There Is only one way to find that •ut —namely. by a suit directed LAOAINST THE TRACTION COM ■ANT. > No such suit has been filed, tho the mayor has talked about It for more than a year. In the absence of such a suit, we must assume that the street cars will continue to belong to the city. And so our Important business Is to see that the street car system Is managed efficiently. WE'RE ENTITLED TO BETTKR MANAGEMENT The city is entitled to better man •Cement than It has had during the past year. The city Is entitled to have something else than mere polit ical operation of Ita street car ays tern A little over a year ago. Mayor CWdwrH began thla political attack upon the street railway. He began first with attacking the manage ment He claimed that the manage ment was attempting to show a prof It en the system, but that no deprect auon was being charged. If depreciation were charged, the Um would be ISM 004. he claimed Tea remember those figures, do you jiot? After a year of Caldwell's manage ment. what have toe?

CXDERCALDWBX riH» ARB ADVANCED We have, under Caldwell, an ad vani-e In car fares, too. where before his time we continued on a nickel We have, under Caldwell, an Inroad Into the general fund for some 111.- M«. the first time the railway dipped Into the general fund. We have, under Caldwell, the cir cumstance of drawing upon Interest Money that had been laid aside to ■e»t obligations as they fell due. Nothing like that had been done un 4er the previous administration. So, I*.l tier Caldwell's one year in office, this Kit happened: 1. Fares raised twice. 2. A real Ins.. a* weO a* the l»<* thru depreciation charge*. J. The flr«t inroad Into general find. 4 The first Inroad Into the In terest fond. These are indisputable facta. There [are other circumstance#, too. I It is dalm*o that the street rail way department's expense ha* been enormously high, that the cost of malntenan-e nnd operation has been egtraordlnnrliy big. ctumnx MANAGEMENT A DEAD FAUX RE There Is but one conclusion — namely, that the Caldwell manage irent has been a dead failure In the past year. Tou will remember that, tho Culd well first started his campaign with an attack on the MANAGEMENT under the previous admlnis'.i ition. t.iis was soon forgotten (perhaps for tho reasons above 'numerated) and the air was fl'led with charges of cor ruptloti. He wanted to probe the deal, tho he Mm«e!f sat In the con ferences that l*-«l to the 115.000,000 offer. The council voted hlrn 110,000 for the r-roo* • He spent |">,000 or nor* to K»'t trie, opinion of an engi neer by the r.ame of Whipple on the value of the system. That same opin lon could have been gotten for 12.10. A dozen more opinions could have been got!* n at the same rate from experts _>f equal "prominence." * The result was that the mayor's pr'.l-e in. irthed nothing that had not lepj, printed In the newspapers pull!>'ly (it the lime the den! was put thru The mayor knows IL But dem.iK" :s must have their fling. And so t'.» at .-eft car system Is the foot ball of politics.

Specific Performance of Purchase Contract Is Asked; "Taxpayers" Are Restrained A restraining order which temporarily quashes the ef fort* of 14 taxpayers thru litigation in superior court to force the city of Seattle to default in interest payment to Stone & Webster on the municipal railway bonds, was granted in the federal court Monday morning by District Judges Jeremiah Neterer and Edward E.

In which It is sought to compel the city to provide for interest pay ments on the street car purchase by setting aside moneys out of ths gross revenues of the system. President A. W. I.eimard Monday Issued the following written state ment: 'The company. In suit No. SJ3. In the federal court, which was filed this morning, seeks to obtain specific performanco of the contract con tained in the bonds, which the city delivered to the company at the time the city purchased the street railway property from the company. In such suit It asks that the city tmas urer pay Into the special fund out of the gross revenues of the street rail way system the amount which Ordi nate No. .190:.'. pledged to the spe cial fund.

Taxpayers claimed they meant an attaik on the general fund, altho all city officials with the ex ception of the mayor claimed It was only a temporary lonn. The Puget Sound Power & I.lght Co.
