Garbage collection was the chief topic of discussion at the January meeting of the city council Monday raorning. J. D. Mullaney. who holds a three year contract with the city for handling the garbage, came before the council to ask for a ruling on his relationship with other garbage collectors operating under city licenses. Mr. Mullaney's remarks were particularly directed against S. W. Stratton, a discharged employe who, he said, now is collecting garbage under a city license. Sen-ice Was Free. "I was forced to discharge this man because I found he was collecting $1 a month from downtown restaurants and keeping the money himself, when my position has been that of giving the service free," the garbage collector stated. F. R. Fockler, manager of the Jefferson bus station and cafe, cor- robrated Mr. Mullaney's remarks with the statement he had paid $1 a month to Stratton for years and had always regarded that as part of the city's plan. The matter was referred to City Manager Herbert T. Barclay for disposition, the feeling among several councilmen, who expressed themselves, being that the person having a contract with the city should, handle all the garbage and be held responsible for it. It was brought out that under the ordinance four others were collecting garbage downtown under a 550 license fee. Damaging Business. Mr. Mullaney brought out that the operations of these persons was damaging to his business inasmuch as the downtown garbage was actually an asset to the collector because of its value as hog feed, whereas the cost of residential collections was high. Some of the councilmen, all of whom were present, and City Solicitor H. J. Bryant, however, questioned Mr. Mullaney on his garbage contract and were critical concern- ng some of the circumstances under which it was drawn up. It was brought out that the contact, which pays Mr. Mullaney $500 i month, for the collection of gar- sage in Mason City, was drawn up ast May by Mr. Mullaney and E. H. ofoot, who was city manager at Jie time, and that it was never before the city council for approval. Regarded Valuable. Mr. Bryant stated he made several suggestions to Mr. Crofoot in drawing up the contract, but that these were not included in the document. The contract rung for three years with option for renewal two more years. Mr. Bryant pointed out that in most cities a garbage contract is regarded so valuable as to bring payments to the city for the person getting it. Mr. Mullaney maintained this would be true only in large cities. There was some criticism for the fact that the contract was awarded without competitive bidding. Mr. Mullaney maintained, however, that he was saving the city several thousand dollars by not operating the incinerator and that as far as he was concerned there was nothing in the contract inimical to the city's interest. "I'll surrender my contract if my statements are false," he said. "I don't know what a city council is for if it is not to act on a contract of this size," said Councilman J. T. Laird. Never Brought Up. "The matter has never been brought to the attention of this council before," said Councilman W. S. Wilcox. Mr. Mullaney maintained he had talked to several councilmen individually about the rnatter. The council members and tie city manager, however, nad no complaint :o make over the manner'in which Vfr. Mullaney was handling the garbage. This, they stated, was evidently well handled inasmuch as they had received practically no complaints. The council approved the appointment of the following deputy assessors by W. H. Gleason, city assessor: First ward--P. H. Hughes, 9 eorgia avenue northeast, and R. V. McCulloch. 341 Pennsylvania avenue southeast. Second ward--Mrs. Mildred Prescott, Kirk apartments, and M. Carrol, 221 West State street. Third ward--B. R.

FBANCHEBE N. F. Franchere Dies After Year's Illness Funeral Services to Be Held at Holy Family Church Tuesday Morning. N. F. Franchere, 79, who had been residing with his son, Dr. C. M. Franchere, 930 Madison avenue northwest, died at a local hospital at 6:30 o'clock Sunday morning following an illness of about a year. He had been confined at the hospital for the past four months. Mr. Franchere was born in Chicago, Oct. 25, 1856. It might be written he was born to baseball. He grew up on the sandlots of Chicago with Charley Comiskey and played catch with the neighborhood gang by the light of the Chicago fire in 1871. During his last years in Mason City he was to be found at the local ball park practically every day the Mason City team played. Sees First Game. For Mr, Franchere it was a memorable afternoon in Dexter park, Chicago, when Chicago beat the Cincinnati Red Sox and Comiskey startled his gang by telling the members, "I'm going to have a championship team before I die and don't forget it." That was Mr. Franchere's introduction to big time basceball, for he had crawled under the fence that afternoon with Comiskey and the gang and had become chummy with the fielders. Mr. Franchere never lost his enthusiasm for the game. Mr. Franchere could recall the Chicago fire, to which he was not allowed to go because of his youth but he played catch by the light of it. He also saw the body of the martyred Lincoln as it passec through Chicago May 1, 1865, on its way from Washington to Springfield. Came Here in 1903. In 1877, Mr. Franchere was married to Miss Corrine Marr, at Chicago. Four children were born to the couple while residing at Chicago during which time Mr. Franchere was employed at the Field and Leiter store, which later became Marshall Field company. In 1S94 the family moved to Cedar Rapids, where Mr. Franchere was engaged for a few years in the mercantile business, and then moved to Mason City in 1900, where he entered the same line of business where Damon's store. Inc., is at present. After a short time Mr. Franchere entered the insurance business with the Bankers' Life Insurance company. He had resided in Mason City most of his life since 1900, with the exception of a few years spent at Cedar Rapids. He was preceded in death 20 years ago by his wife. Mr. Franchere spent a year in France during the World war with the K. c. contingent. Children Survive, Surviving Mr. Franchere are his three daughters, Miss Lucille Franchere, who is teaching at the College of St. Scholastica, Duluth, Minn.; Mrs. F. X. Roach, Minneapolis, and Mrs. J. C. Stoddard, 324 Second street southeast, and one son. Dr. C. M. Franchere, 930 Madison avenue northwest. Seven grandchildren also survive, Lucia, Corrine and Frank Roach; Marr, Xvonne and Odette Stoddard, and Corrine Marr Franchere. Funeral services will be held at the Holy Family church Tuesday morning at 8:30 o'clock, with the Rev. R. p. Murphy in charge. Burial will be at Calvary cemetery. St. Paul, Minn. The Rosary will be said at the Randall funeral home at 8 o'clock Monday evening. The body was taken to the Randall funeral home. Second street southwest, and J. G, Brunson, Ninth street northeast. Claims Considered. A claim for damages to an automobile as result of the condition of the street on Eighth street southeast was referred to the city solicitor. Likewise the' claim of Dr. R. W Schulz for $1,833.50 for a fractured right arm. John A. Guelff was granted a I beer permit for 801 South Federa avenue. The claim of Max Goldberg of the Leader grocery for adjustment on a water bill was referred to the city manager. Contracts for the construction of the storm sewer in the southern part of the city -were ordered executed by Miss Beulah Randolph, deputy city clerk. A special resolution was passed by the council designating Miss Randolph as acting clerk for carrying out this assignment. Miss Randolph was acting for City Clerk J. H. McEwen, who is seriously ill at the Story hospital. The city officials at the meeting took up a collection for the purchase of flowers for Mr. McEwen. Work Progressing;. The city manager reported WPA work progressing, the city skating rink in East park being practically completed and the first installment of parking work finished. The council selected the city manager and Councilman Leo Davey to accompany a Chamber of Commerce committee to Ames this week for support of a proposal to jet all government money available for paving in Mason City allocated for completion of the Federal avenue resurfacing.- The city manager reported that some ?5,700 of 511,000 in delinquent water bills had been collected the past four months. His Motioa Lost. This led Mayor J. J. Burns to launch into the defense of a Mrs. Mass, who he said was SO years old and lived on Seventh street southeast. This woman and her husband, now dead, had paid taxes here for 50 years, he said. 'All the water this woman has is the water carried her by neighbors," he said. Mayor Burns' motion that no more water be shut off because of nonpayment of bills in instances where people are unable to work out their water bills lost for want of a second. ACCIDENT HELD "UNAVOIDABLE" Brief Inquest Held by County Coroner to Determine Nature of Accident. A brief inquest to determine ths nature of the automobile accident which, caused the death of Roberta Anderson early Friday morning was held in the office of County Attorney Frederick B. Shaffer Saturday afternoon. Dr. J. E. McDonald, county coroner, presided. Nine witnesses including persons on the sled and in the two automobiles at the scene of the accident were questioned. A verdict of unavoidable accident was returned. Witnesses who were standing beside the bobsled near which the accident occurred Thursday evening testified that had Theodore Knudson, driver of the automobile which struck Miss Aiderson, turned to the eft of the sled as he should have according to rules of the road, he would have struck a number of persons. Mr. Knudson testified that he did not see the bob-sled party until he was within about 20 feet of it. He said ho did not see Miss Anderson and that he turned to the right to avoid a. serious accident. The fender of his car struck her as she wa.s about to enter the car which was hauling the sled. 3ne Time Waterloo Weekly Editor.Dies MILWAUKEE.

Carlson Speaks on 'Paradox of Faith." "Faith is not a reckless gamble on an uncertain future," said the Rev. Alexander S. Carlson, speaking on "The Paradox of Faith" at the Congregational church Sunday morning. Faith, the minister maintained, is "the proclamation of a joyous confidence based on a prior certainty and an amalgam of daring initiative and self-imposed restraint." "Faith in J'esus Christ is the implicit confidence that he can satisfy the deepest hungers and needs of our day," the minister added. "This assurance grows out of the results in cases where men have actually followed Him. No motto for the individual, or the church, or the nation could be productive of better fruitage in the year that stretches on than the command Jesos gave: 'Follow Me.' Lose Spritual Insight. "In our deepest longing for God, we can find ourselves in His presence in no surer way than Jesus taught. To follow Jesus in the practice of prayer and communion, to climb with him to the heights of spiritual outlook, where goodness and beauty and honesty and righteousness are, is to find ourselves finally in touch with God. It is when we think of material things, the temporal and earthly that we lose our spiritual insight. To follow Jesus is to find God. "It is also to find an answer to the question: 'How shall I live my life'/' Onr days may be spent in hate and selfishness. We can think of the power of physical force as supreme or we can cultivate the conquering power of goodness and love. Gilbert Chesterton's remark can be paraphrased: Christianity has not been tried and found wanting, but it has been tried and found difficult. To follow Jesus is to find adventure and the fullness of living which fidelity to His spirit richly bestows. "And in our need of moral re-en- lorcement, Jesus' way of life provides us the power to overcome the beast within us and develop the best, lad men have become good, injus- ;ice has been replaced with justice, hate has given way to brotherhood when men have fallowed Him and ;aken His spirit for the 1 direction of .heir individual lives. 'Follow Me' is a motto to burn, into the depths of one's soul, not for the year, but for ife." Lesson on "God." "God" was the subject of the :e£son-sermon in the Church ol Christ, Scientist, Sunday. The Golden Text was from Psalms 86 :S, 10, "Among the gods there is none like unto Thee, 0 Lord; , . . For Thou are great, and doest wondrous things; Thou art God alone.' The lesson-sermon comprised quotations from the Bible and from the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health With Key to the Scriptures" by Mary Baker Eddy. One of the Bible citations read: "Thus saith God the Lord, He that created the heavens and stretched them out; He that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; He that giveth bread unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein; I am the Lord: that is my name; and My glory will I not give to another, neither My praise to graven images." (Isaiah 42:5, S.) Among the selections from the Christian Science textbook was the following: "God is what the Scriptures declare Him to be--'Life, Truth, Love. Spirit is divine Principle, and divine Principle is Love, and Love is Mind, and Mind is not both good and bad, for God is Mind; therefore there is in reality one Mind only, because there is one God." (Page 330.) "In the midst of the chaotic condition of our country, with an annual crime bill of about 13 billion dollars, enough money to retire our national debt in about two years and a general low level of law enforcement throughout our whole land, there is today a most dire need of a voice that will rouse the people to a conviction of sin and lawlessness both in public and private life." said the Rev. O. L. N. Wigdahl at the Trinity Lutheran church. "Is there any such voice that can speak with finality against all transgression of law? "Yes, there is such a voice and it is the voice of God speaking through His word which He has called His church to preach and proclaim to all people without fear or favor but with love and zeal. If the church fails in this most essential mission then there is no remedy because the one unfailing cure for all sin and unrighteousness is set aside by those who are entrusted with this great blessing from God.

PHONE 563 REGULATION FOR ALL CARRIERS IS DECLARED VITAL Drummond Sketches History of Various Rulings on Transportation. All forms of transportation'should be brought under regulation if business and industry are to be free to develop in all parts of the country on equal terras, B. J. Drummond. manager of the transportation department of the Chamber of Commerce, told the Rotary club Monday noon in Hotel Hanfprd. "The history of litigation before the interstate commerce commission since 1906 demonstrates conclusively that the vast majority of complaints have sought relief from unjust discrimination, preference ar.ti prejudice brought about by the maintenance of rates that favored one community or class of traffic to the exclusion of others." Mr. Drummond added, "The activities at commercial organizations will be greatly increased if their respective communities are to enjoy equal rates and privileges at the hands of motor carriers as well as railroads. Combination Flourished. "Since the advent of the motor driven vehicle followed by improved highways, transportation conditions have become as chaotic as they were during the years prior to the passage of the interstate commerce act in 1897 and its subsequent amendment in 1905 when penalties for its violation were incorporated therein. "During those years, when cut rates, secret rebates and midnight tariffs were in vogue, the businessman knew not from one day to the next how much it would cost him to put his product on the market. By various devices the large concerns were shown preference and the small business soon passed out of the picture. It was during those years that powerful combinations in business, with the aid of secret assistance from the railroads, came into being and flourished. Stabilized by Penalties. "It was not until 'teeth' in the way of penalties, applicable to carriers and shippers alike, was incorporated in the interstate commerce ict by amendments in, 1903 and 1905 that the freight rate structure became stabilized. It was largely at the behest of so-called big business that these amendments were passed. Thus order was brought out of chaos and business conditions were almost immediately improved. Discriminations were largely done away with and the small business began to have hope of a brighter day ahead as transportation rates and practices came under the regulatory powers of the commission.
