Tin Trash Cans Again May Disfigure
Street Corners.

Are the "Gilwees" to be revived? "Gilwees" were the unsightly trash cans that imposed their undesirable presence on the public a few years ago, and bloomed and prospered until an indignant populace demanded their extermination.

Now come P. S. Burke, M. J. Pendergast and Shelton P. Stone to the council with an ordinance asking for a five years' permit to decorate the corners of the streets and center of blocks with trash cans. The upper house sent the ordinance to the sidewalk committee last night.
If the grantees are permitted to go into the trash can business they agree to keep their books on the square, and pay annually into the city 10 per cent of the gross revenues. Their revenues will be from attaching advertisements, to the cans, it being promised that no offensive "ads" will be tolerated.
