Federated pictures Columbus Ohio a formation of a political action coordinating committee which includes official representatives of All major labor organizations in the state of Ohio was announced Here this week. First official action of the newly formed political Arm of organized labor in Ohio was a Iasi at the so called Massachusetts Type ballot which it labelled Quot a deliberate attack on our two re gum and an attempt at political manipulation of our election Laws by the Taft organization trying for temporary political advantage without regard for the Basic democratic principles included in the newly formed United labor league of Ohio Are representatives of 1,200,000 Trade unionists in the United they represent the Ohio c i Council the Ohio state federation of labor the United mine workers of America the inter National association of machinists the communications workers of America and the following Railroad brotherhoods the brotherhood of locomotive fire men and engine men the brotherhood of railway trainmen the order of railway conductors the brotherhood of locomotive j engineers the brotherhood of railway clerks and maintenance j of Way employees. Following an organizational meeting held in Columbus late j last week the United labor Lea i gue of of a elected an executive committee composed of leaders of All of these organizations. Dive committee m a Val charter is no Stooge for any company Everett says by Rollin h. Everett City councilman tote strangest Campaign Issue Ever raised by men wishing to be elected to a City Council is being Laboured these Days by some organization Republican Council candidates. They say that Street car fares should be raised and should have been raised Long before now they say that water rates should be raised and should have been raised before now they say that the fight against Gas and electric rate increases should be dropped they charge the Jcarter majority in Council with a political dishonesty Quot because these rates have not been increased without a struggle. The facts Are that the charter majority is concerned with the welfare of the consuming Public of Cincinnati and Are not stooges for the Cincinnati Gas amp electric co. The Street car fare Issue is a Clear Cut one. Starting with my Resolution and demand to the company several months ago in regard to the it. Adams incline we have tried to work out a critical situation in Public transportation without further rate savings the program we have adopted is one of rapid change from Street cars to trolley buses and gasoline buses which can be operated at a substantial saving Over Street cars. It has double barrelled benefits. Getting rid of Street ears we also get rid of loading platforms and Street car tracks. The buses move to the curb to Load and unload instead of cluttering up the Center of the Street. Traffic movement is greatly improved. Trolley buses and buses move More rapidly and get the Public where they Are going More quickly. The savings which can be made Are the Only Hope of bailing the company out financially and giving Cincinnati decent a inclined in the first place i made a provision of my introduction of a Resolution on the incline that the company work out with the City a stopping of fare increases. Instead of having to Lay aside Money for the incline while the Legal question of forcing them to repair it was being threshed out my Resolution provided that they use their funds to buy trolley buses and buses. Mayor Cash then worked out with the company an arrangement whereby the City would assume Street repairs while the company used its funds to further Speed the Purchase of new vehicles. Councilman Gordon Scherer gop j Campaign manager at first agreed to the working out of such a plan. Then it occurred to him it might be politically advantageous to the republicans to have two More fare rises before election. So he and his group refused to vote for the is a a dishonest in other words for political purposes he was willing to Saddle on the car riders another Penny of fare and to jeopardize the whole future of Public transportation. I am asking who is Quot politically there is no evidence whatever at present of a general increase in water rates being needed. A Cost accounting study is now underway with Scherer a approval and until it is completed no one will know the future of water rates. The City is making $15,000,000 in waterworks improvements assuring an adequate Supply for 50 years. This is being financed with the Sale of Bonds in anticipation of Revenue a Standard City procedure voted for by republicans As Well As Charte rites. The question of fighting Gas and electric increases is one which i hardly need to discuss further. We believe they Are unnecessary and should be fought strenuously.
