BIG, BRIGHT IDEA IS BORN
Anti-Gas Franchise Association Will
Offer Plan of Its Own.
WILL SPUING IT IN CAMPAIGN
n i i i i n
llrlRht Idea Is to Tell People Why
Tbey Are' Flffhtlnir Proposed Or
dinance and to Offer Substi
tute If Tliry Can Agree.
Peace folded her drab ntngs and brooded
over the headquarters of the anti-ai
franchise association and the offlco force
sweltered and was In a lethargy. Sud
donly Harry B. Zlmman and H. AV. Mor
row brought their feet off the tablo an J
struck the floor a sharp blow. A blight
Idea had been born.
"We're fighting this gaa ordinance."
said Zlmman, sanely. "We oppose it
The peoplo know we oppose 1U But ws
ought to tell them why we are against.
What think you, comrades?"
"You are suffering from a tit of pure
sanity," remarked Edward Black, tho
steady pounder of the prolific mill, who
U publicity manager and chief advisor to
the anti-gas association. "I've thought
ot that and you -or? perfectly right,"
Slowly the Bright Idea grew until It
had reached the amoebic stage. At th'.i
point It appeared like this; At the op
portune moment we will spring u sur
prise; we will tell the people what wc
think ought to bo done after tho fran
chise ordinance is voted dowp.
Later when a weary newspaper man
wandered Into the offices of tho associa
tion Eddie Black voiced the opinion ot
the opponents of the franchise ordinance
when he said:
"We are Just waiting. We admit this
franchise ordinance Is a bad business
Whether wa will advanoe the mumclp'
ownership Idea or not will be kept quiet.
But we are preparing a plan which will
be better than granting a twenty-five-year
"I'm opposed to municipal ownership,"
Zlmman declared. "Oh, yes, we have
something which we will offer as a sub
stitute for this ordinance. What is It?
Search me. But we'll have It when tho
time comes. It would not be wise to
spring it now. Watt until' the strateglo
point ot the struggle Is on and then we'll
herald It over the city."
It Is understood the plan, which is to
be built on the Bright Idea, will be an
nounced through the advertising columns
of the newspapers. If It Is found that a
jplan can be formulated which will satisfy
all the opponents ot the franchise.
Just now, it is clearly evident, tha as
sociation of anti-gas men are afraid to
propound their substitute for the reason
that It might -create discord owing to cer
tain little' deficiencies and so they -are
confining their efforts to saying simply
that the proposed ordinance Is "bad."
In the heat ot the closing campaign a
heat the antls fondly hope to generate
the -new plan Could be sprung and might
pass without carefUl scrutiny. It will he
made to appeal especially to voters and
the members of the association who have
persistently, opposed the proposed ordi
nance for "two or three, days will vouch
for Its value, Its practical working out
and 'the soundness of the theory:-
