P. H. Hebb, today, after a trip east and to San Francisco.—
"I am in favor of municipal ownership. The city should go

ownership all over the city."

P. H. Hebb, millionaire business man and resident of Tacoma

Today, after a search of the rec

WOODS DOESN'T LIKE

FreiSland presented the request of

OUGHT TO QO RIGHT AHEAD WITH MUNICIPAL OWN
ERSHIP. Build that tideflat line. As fast as the franchises of
the old company run out absorb the lines. It is the way to develop
the city. We must have industrial development and it is up to
the city to take hold and do it.
"In San Francisco municipal street car lines are working
fine. The courts have compelled universal transfers with the city
line. They even compel common use on the tracks. If we cannot
do as much in Tacoma then I say we will go to the legislature and
get a law that will make it possible.
"TACOMA SHOULD START RIGHT NOW ON THE TIDE
FLAT LINE WITH MUNICIPAL OWNERSHIP AND DE
VELOP JUST AS FAST AS POSSIBLE."
The change of attitude of Mr. Hebb is quite general among
business men in the city who last year opposed the city going in
to the traction business. Today sentiment is rapidly swinging to
favor it and they want, not only a municipal line on the flats, but
want it extended to other parts of the city.
