Prepares a Message Arraigning the Council for Giving Away Public Property Worth to Corporations MILWAUKEE Wis Aug Mayor Rose will veto the L ordinance as was expected His message to the council J fact was finished to-day A more scathing arraignment of a body of city officials has seldom been seen The mayor points out that the men are so far as anyone knows making a leap in the dark and giving away a franchise worth millions to no one knows who and persistent at- tempts on the part ot the press and members ot the council have the says tailed to reveal the names ot those back ot the scheme In says the mayor the whole procedure seems to be clothed with the deepest secrecy and those nt interest absolutely decline to give to the city and to the public that in- formation which is justly due when an enterprise ot this character is sought to be projected Tho people ot the city arc entitled to know in ad- vance what the aims and purposes ot this movement are Proceeding Mayor Rose points out one ot the worst features of thn ance As drawn tho company is pledged to build tho line within three years ot the date of passage but all he time whea the company Is by legal proceedings Is to be out Action after action may bo Brought his honor says and the building of the road delayed for a a century or more This la would be bad enough but is worse is that it will cast a over tho titles ot all the property along the route selected and for sixty feet in on either side as the company has the right umlor the ordinance to divert the tracks for that connect with depots The damages are certain to amount to a large sum but the mayor says there Is not the least scintilla of evidence to show that the promoters ot tho line have the money to pay these damages Concluding Mayor Rose The effect ot this ordinance Is grant rights ot great value which be- long to the public and without ing the least consideration therefor There has been too much secrecy too much mystery too much uncertainty this ordinance and its passage Public interests are too sacred to bo juggled in this light fashion
