COMMON COUNCIL CONSIDERED
Countless Amendments Were Intto
dueod, but Adjournment Was
Taken Before Vote on Second
Rending Amendment Limiting
Time of Franchise to Forty Years
Was Defeated Opposition to Ordi
nances ns Introduced by Mcssts.
Keller. Pnlue and A. L. Lewis.
Vhe common council last night spent
nearly four hour! In consideration of
the oidltmiK e awarding a franchise to
the Vu Hud Sttcet Itallway company,
which differ! fioin the other franchise
oiillnances only its to route.
Amendment.- limiting the fraui hlse lo
foity years and providing for a revers
ion to tlie city tit the expiration of that
time; compelling the company to p.tve
for three feet on each Hide of Its Hacks:
taxing Its gross receipts live per cent.,
and providing for a naymenl of li,(i(0
for the franchise wete lost. Amend
ments providing for tin cent fares
during rush hours, and providing for
coinpulsory arbitration In the set I le
nient of labor disputes wete adonled.
Ntmibeiless othei resolutions of It ss
Importance wete Introduced and either
lost ot can led.
Vlnorotw opposition to the passage of
the ordinance without the insertion of
testilctlve clauses and lo the alleged
effoil to railroad it Ihtou-.-h councils
was displayed b, Luther Keller, II. 13.
P.tlne. O. !(. Pattrldge and A. L. Lewis.
These members kept continually hum
mel lug away nil night for more time
to consider the ordinance, but the other
side kept voting down the motions to
adjourn, which were made at regular
Intervals of about fifteen minute.;.
Finally, just before the hour of mid
night, the opposition made a last stand
und succeeded III securing an adlotirn
melil before tlie measure had passed
mi und readlny.
The tluee o'-dinniii es were reported
favorably by the railways committee
without amendment or alteral'on. and
the West Knd ordinance was culled up
fh. st by H. K. Itobathau. The measure
was passeil on llrst rending, but when
the motion was made to pass It on sec
ond reading, Mr. P.tlne aiose and of
feied the first objection to the ineasiue.
lie said It was outrageous to let the
company off with paving onlv twelve
Inches on t.ich side of tlie tracks. Three
feel on each side of the tracks, and
nothing less, was the llguie which
should be Included He said that tlie
set lion piovidiug that the i ompany
shall coumlete tlie consti'ip-iion of tlie
road In the time rci-uircd by law placed
absolutely no time limit upon the con
struction at all, because the lime limit
tlxed by law Is seven years, and at the
end of that time the companies could
secure a new law fioni the state legis
lature extending this lime for another
seven years. He lavored placing tlie
time limit at two years. These changes
would not harm the company, and
would be of Incalculable benefit to the
citizens of the city.
A resolution offcied b Mr. Sykes.
providing for the submission of all
tluee ordinances to the city solicitor,
was referred to committee.
Mr. Itobathau offered two amend
ments at this Juncture. The 11 1 -1 of
these provided that the i ompany should
widen Lafayette street, between Hyde
Park and Ninth .Main avenues, to a
tmifoim width of loity feet, acquiring
all property and paying all damages,
befote occupying that portion of this
st i eel with street railway Hacks. This
was unanimously adopted.
LOW-PR ICKD TiCKHTS.
The second amendment provided that
the company should issue coupon hooks
containing li i tickets, the same to be
sold at a price not less than $.t, and
such tickets to be good between the
boms of i! and R a. in. and ft and 7 p.
m. This amendment was given to Mi.
Itobathau to introduce by President
Calpin. It was unaniuiousl-, adopted.
A. L, Lewis then offered a series of
amendments which piovoked the great
est discussion of tlie night and which
took over two hours to consider. The
llrst amendment piovlded that Hie
company should not sell, or assign its
interests to un other company. This
amendment was lost it being generally
conceded that such a provision could
not be enforced.
The second aniciiiliuenl piovlded that
til the end of forty jcars tlie franchise
rights, trucks, switches, turnouts, poles
and wires should revert to the city and
he then offered at public sule and sold
lo the highest bidder.
"The time hits come." said he, "when
there should be a limit pluccd on the
granting of franchises. The day is past
when un enlightened municipality i tin
give away its streets for all time and
gel nothing In return. The people of
this city may want a belter street rail
way service but they also demand that
the franchises shall he so guarded so
nit lo give the eil Its Just dtt"s in re
turn." Mr. Holmtlmn, In teply, said that ihe
amendment was altogether unfair to
limit the franchise of this company
which proposes to Instull what every
body In the city Is clamoring for, and
which the city needs more than It needs
anything else a llrst class, modern,
up-to-date street tailway system.
President Calpin took the Moor long
enough to urge the members to take a
middle ground and not Impose restric
tions upon tin' now companies which
would be unreasonabli-,

A motion to postpone action until
the next meeting was made by Mr,

The set iiml iitiieiuiiueut piovlded that

cairied without opposition.
An amendment olfcrcd by Mr. Palue,
limiting the time for the construction

Mr. Keller at this point made a brief
address which hud the effect of accom
plishing Just what he had been trying
to accomplish all night, namely, a post
ponement of uetlon until next Thitis

been inaile to pass the nrdlnunce on
"I knew when Ihe llrst ole was Ink

"You men will have an aroused com

He moved to adlouiu till Thursdu.

lying along the track, and not knowing

about four inches long and one und
one-half inches in diameter. They are
