DECLARES GRUNT IS VOID
FOCRTH-STREKT FRANCHISE IS
DISCUSSED BY MAYOR.
I.ano Says Council Can Control Sit
uation Only by Passing More
In a communication to the City Coun
cil yesterday morning, transmitting- a re
port of the Railway Commission relative
to a recent accident at Fourth and Sher
.t.ii hpn a Southern Pacific
engine hit and demolished a trolley car,
Mayor Lane staiea uiai, in ins upuuuw,
the franchise under which the corpora
tion operates on Fourth street is void
because it haa no time limit. He 'urged
the Council to repeal the ordinance under
which the company is acting and give it
another and more stringent franchise if
it is deemed wise to permit the operation
of trains at all on that thoroughfare. The
letter waa referred to the committee on
In his letter, the Mayor, referring to
the franchise, aaid:
It is without a time limit in its terms,
and for this reason is by its representa
tives claimed to be gifted with perpetual
life, which would seem to be an uncom
monly long period of time for It to live
and would be a gift of such nature In
that respect thaf it could only emanate
from the Supreme Being, who would be
guilty of no such folly."
Mayor Lane calls attention to the prob
lem of people living along the present
West Side line, saying:
The question as to whether the city
desires or can afford to cut itself off from
communication with the country and peo
ple to the west and south of It is another
matter, but the fact that the present
method of the conduct of this railway la
both a source of danger and a nuisance
is beyond any question."
Mayor Lane calls atention to the fact
uia. in c"!'"'
has absolute power over the Fourth-street
line to the extent of ordering the company
to remove its tracks, but he says he
doubts this, and believes' that only by
repealing the present franchise can the
Council control the situation. The Coun
cil passed an ordinance 18 months ago
fixing November as the time for cessa
tion of operation of trains on Fourth
street, and it is the belief of members of
the Council that It will be the duty of
Mayor Lane and his Executive Board
to enforce this ordinance when the time
arrives. By his letter the Mayor clearly
shows that he intends to force the Coun
cil to this task.
"The School Girl" at
Ponte, lireen and Prager went big, as did
"Have You Seen My Baby," by Mar
guerite La Ponte and chorus.
Other musical numbers, which are In
troduced generously throughout the ac
tion of the piece, were warmly received.
Notwithstanding the fact that the hot
weather is over. The Oaks shows seem
just as popular as ever and yesterday"s
audiences were unusually large. ,

Is responsible for the whole show, for it
is he who, not only stages the perform
ance but provides what comedy there is

"Tne School Girl" is the name of this
week-s attraction In the Alrdome. There
is a bunch of a dozen attractive chorus
rlrls. who not only have locs but a
number of lines that are really Interest
ing to any audience. The male comedians
captivate the crowds, and at last night s
performance they were compelled to ap
pear on the stage time and time again
to reapond to the numerous encores.
There is Just enough of a plot to hang
any number of bright, catchy song hits
on. and there is breexy. rattling dialogue
that oases away the blues from the
worst pessimist In the city. Winifred
Green, the dainty schoolteacher of the
bill, is Just as charming as ever, and
this is praise enough. Always a high
favorite at The Oaks, she scored her
usual hit yesterday in the new bill.
