MAYOR HOPES TO
GIVE ORDINANCE
' THOROUGH TRIAL
That the council will take no ac
tion interfering with a thorough
trial of the parking ordinance
adopted last week, is the opinion
held by Mayor C. P.
Skinner ana
which he expressed to the press to-
ne w ordinance. ! It was published
last Saturday. The council may j
take some action at its meeting!
next Monday evening and stop the
ordinance before it becomes effec
tive but If the views held by the
mayor are true, no such action will
be taken. Mayor Skinner main
tains that the majority of aldermen
were opposed to making exception
for any class, feeling that if one
class were exempted all would seek
the same privilege. He does not
believe the petition of city physi
cians for exemption wilmeet with
favor when placed before the coun
cil next Monday night -

, Chicago, Sept 14. Depressing of
sterling exchange had a bearish ef
fect today on the wheat market
Rains In Argentina, counted also,
as an incentive to set. On'the re
sulting setback, however, bouses
wit h eastern connections were buy
ers and there was a brisk milling
demand. Opening prices, which
varied from unchanged figures to'
c lower, with. December $2.48 H
to $2.49. and March 2.43 to S2.44,
were followed by a material decline
all around, and then something of
a rally. i
Assertions that seaboard export
ers had entirely withdrawn from
the market, led to serve weakness
later. The market closed almost
demoralized 7 to 9 cento net
lower with December 12.39 to
S2.40, and March $2.36.
Favorable weatner and the de
cline in wheat lead to breaks in the
corn market After opening c to
He lower, including December at
$1.18 to $1.19, the market con
tinned to fall. "
Subsequently notice of the shut
ting down of manufacturing plants
at Peoria and Decatur, 111., was fol
lowed by a price drop to the lowest
level yet this season for the .Decern'
bef delivery. The close was nerv
ous, 3c to 5c net lower, with
December $1.14 to $1.14.
- Oats eased down with other grain
starting unchanged to c off, and
then undergoing a general sag.
Higher quotations on hogs
strengthened provisions.

Democratic and Republican. If this is a challenge to those
who dare stand for the people's rights of Home Rule, to
battle those that are controlled or owned by the Utilities
Corporations, even to our Courts, please count me in on
, the people's side. I stand squarely for Home Rule, and am
opposed to the election of any man to public office who is
opposed to Government derived from the people them
selves. If these Corporations can control and peddle our
Supreme Courts and other public officials in the political
arena, it's high time the people were waking up.
