THE MORXIXG OEEGOMAX, TUESDAY. SEPTEMBER 18, 1906.
ft VETO MESSAGE
Gives Reasons for Disapprov
ing East Third-Street
PROTESTS ARE INDORSED
City at Large Would Not Be Ben
efited by O. R. & N- Company's
Proposed Fill Against All
Convinced that the proposed franchise
of the O. R. & N. over East Third street
would be against the best interests of
the city, and backed by a strong public
Bentiment, Mayor Lane yesterday vetoed
the ordinance, recently passed by the
Council, giving the O. K. & N. trackage
rights on that thoroughfare. In return
ing the ordinance to the Council with
his disapproval, tne Mayor cited the ob
jections which have been repeatedly
raised against the- franchise, indorsing'
them as valid and Important.
Not only did Mayor Lane refer to tha
particular ordinance under consideration
In his communication, but also made the
sweeping statement that so long as he
Is Mayor he will not again allow an or
dinance, giving exclusive rights to a city
street or streets, to become a law unless
it shall be passed over his official veto.
Such a policy, he asserts, will be better
both for the city and the railroad com
panies, as" it will reduce to a minimum
the number of streets necessary to be
devoted to terminal purposes.
The Chief Executive goes still further
and questions the authority of the CounJ
cil and himself to grant an exclusive
franchise on streets within the city, even
though it be only for a spur line.
"If they (the Councilmen) do have
such power," he declares, "then in my
opinion they do not act wisely In grant
ing such exclusive franchises. Also 'if
they do have such power, it should be
restricted or taken away from them as
soon as possible."
In his communication the Mayor calls
attention to the fact that the ordinance
as passed Is thoroughly exclusive, there
being neither a provision for the use of
the line by any other company, nor any
stipulation that the road, when built,
may be purchased by the city, thus leav
ing all rights irrevocably in the hands
of the O. B. & N. for the 25 year-life
of the franchise. Rishts for railroad con
struction on city streets should, he de
clares, be granted to all companies alike.
A direct request is made of the Council
that It grant no more exclusive fran
chises. City Should Make Fill.
Mayor Lane also takes up the argument
which has been made In favor of the
franchise because it provides for the fill
ing of East Third street. He is of the
opinion that it would be a very expensive
Job for the city at lartre, if done in con
sideration of the granting of a valuable
franchise, and expresses his mind frank
ly. If it is absolutely necessary that
East Third street be filled as a dona
tion to the owners of abutting property,
he says in substance, let it be filled arid
paid for out of the general fund. Such
a procedure, he suggests, would be pre
ferable to bottling up the East Side ware
house district for 25 years.
The action of Mayor Lane puts the
franchise up to the Council for final ac
tion and it will have a hearing at the
meeting tomorrow. It will take 12 votes
to pass It over the veto, and speculation
is now rife as to whether that many
votes can be mustered. Those who favor
the ordinance claim that it will become
a law in spite of the veto, but their op
ponents say that the twelfth vote will
be found wanting and suggest that not
more than eight "ayes" will be recorded.
It is certain, at all events, that a
wordy battle will ensue when the meas
ure again comes up. Attorneys for the
O. R. & N. have been urging its passage
and are sure to be present to lobby for
uainnite. as are also tne East Side
property owners, who will be directly
benefited. On the other side will be some
of the Councilmen and prominent citizens
who have fought the measure from the
The . Council will no doubt be influenced
somewhat in its action by the threat
which has been made to take the issue
before the people of the city for their
decision at the next election under tha
referendum. It Is an assured fact that
if the ordinance is again passed it will
be brought to a vote under the referen
dum. The Initiative One Hundred is
leading in this movement and Is recelv
, lng general support except among the
owners of property which would be en
hanced in value by the construction of
the road and the filling of the street
Following is the communication of
Mayor Lane to the Council:

successors and aesigr.s the franchise and
r.gnt to construct, equip. own. maintain and
. operate a railway track and side tracks from
a connection with It present track at the
Intersection of East Ankeny street and East
Second street to Eaet Third street at a point
between East Aeh and East Pine streets;
thence along Third street to East Mill street.
My objection to this ordinance Is as fol
lows: It contains no common-user clause The
grant to the uee of EMt Third street Is ex
clusive, which Is contrary to the charter of
the city, and for a period of 25 years I do
not believe that the City Council or the Mayor
has the power or authority to alienate and
grant away the rights of the people to the
streets, least of all to grant an exclusive
right to the use of such streets. If they do
have such power, then, in my opinion, they
do not act wisely In granting such exclusive
franchises. Also If they do have such power
It should be restricted or taken away from
them altogether as soon as possible.
If it is necessary that certain streets should
bs set aside and devoted to railway uses, such
use should be granted to all alike.
East Third street Is the last street In the
central warehouse district of the East Side
which has not already been granted to the
use of iom railway company; the petitioner

necessary that East Third street be riled free

will. In my opinion, be much cheaper In the
long run for the city at large to do this at
Its own expense rather than to allow Its
entire watehouse district on that side of the
river to be bottled up for a period of 25
years by the granting of an exclusive fran-.

It contains no provision whereby the city
tray ever t any time purchase or take over
to Itself the property and plant of the
grantee. In such omission of tbs right of the
city to acquire such title It violates the char
ter rights of the city.
If there Is any question, as to the interpre
tation of this section (No. 05) of the charter,
the city, and not the railway, should be given
the benefit of the doubt by the Council and
In a general way and looking to the future
welfare of the city I aek of your honorable
body that you grant no more franchihes for
the exclusive use of the city's streets to any
one single person -or corporation. In the past
few months, streets to the value of many
thousands of dollars have been granted to
another railway company for terminal pur
poses, and at this time the city is being be
sieged by the same company and other rail
way companies for exclusive Tights to streets
for terminal purposes, and inasmuch as In
the future still other railway companies will
come to this city and of necessity must be
provided with facilities for terminals, it seems
to me that u would be but a matter of com
mon business ser.ee that all such companies
be rtqulrcd to get together and hold their
terminals in common with rights of free ac
cess provided fcr.all other railways which may
desire to come here.
Right Should Be Safeguarded.
The right to condemnation ar.d reversion
to the city Itself should, be well safeguarded.
By doing this a less number of streets would
be needed, terminals would not be scattered
about tOA-n and means of accets to the city's
business districts would not be shut up to
others than railways who m:gnt wiah to do
business with us.
This would not only be better for the city
but also 1-. would be better for the railways
themselves. Also it would save us from the
spectacle of a railway company asking for
an exclusive franchise to one street and de
manding a common-user clause to be inserted
in the franchise sought by another company
to another street. So long as I am Mayor of
the city looking to its welfare in the years
to come I shall refuse to consent to the giv
ing up of any more streets for terminal pur
poses until such time as the different railway
companies will consent to take such streets
upon terms of common user for themselves and
all others. Bespectfully,
HARRY LANE, Mayor.

tlon to comply with their request at
that time and urged , that they return to
work. This the men finally decided to do,
saying they would hold a meeting tonight
and decide what they will do about
striking in case their claims for more
wages are not compiled with.
Tne strike came as an aftermath of the
session of last week when the Teamsters'
Union, voted on calling a strike because
its demands for an advance in wages
from a minimum of $2 50 to a minimum
of $2.75 had been turned down by the
Draymen's Association. The strike advo
cates lost and a number of men threw
away their membership badges after the
meeting, denouncing the union for not
voting to strike. Many drivers for the
Holman Company felt a mistake had been
made in not calling a strike and the fact
that they have lost in their fight for
higher wages rankled when they went to
The trouble occurred at the Holman
barn at the corner of, Seventh and Hoyt
streets. One of the drivers. Archie
6tewart. went to Mr. Herrman yesterday
and asked for a raise In wages to $2.75
a day. The request was granted, but It
made the other drivers angry that their
demands for similar increases had been
When the time came for the drivers to
go out after lunch, they determined that
the time for action had come and de
clared they would not work unless more
pay was forthcoming. After a lengthy
discussion of the question, they consented
to return to work pending an agreement
of the Holman drivers on what policy to
FiAjfc of the proposed bctldixo
pursue. This will probably be arrived at
"I think our men expect to withdraw
from the tin Ion and form an organization
of their own," said Mr. Herrman last
night. "They are dissatisfied with the
action of the union in not calling a
"We feel that until we have time to ar
range a new schedule, we are not in a
positron to advance the wages of the men
and I told them so. I think If they will
be patient and wait a while, that by
next Spring at least, we can get together.
We will have to rearrange our prices be

that many of them are satisfied and will
