Philip Tindall, city councilman, who led the fight for the resolution before Rainier Noble Post, was expected to take up the matter tonight at the meeting of Veterans of Foreign Wars at Roosevelt hall.

In order that the public may be In formed on the subject and not be led away by unsound statements, I propose in a serica of articles to offer the results of my study of the problem extending over a period of two years. The preaent difficulties of the street railway system are due entirely to the attempt to per form a financial miracle inntesd of furnishing transportation for the cltlxeiift of Seattle. Tho attempt to finance the pur chase price of a public utility of the sixe of our street railway entirely from the profits of Its own opera tion, is an economic feat that had not succeeded tixia Lima.
