Ono of tlio big questions of the day

where It slinll bo held, and how tho
102 delegates who will sit In It nro to

sembles lit Springfield Wednesday,
It Is conceded that tho proposition
to call tho convention wns ratified on
Nov. d by a majority of tho total vote
cast of at least GO.OOO. There seems
to bo no doubt but tho now general
assembly, following Its constitutional
duty, will pass tho enabling act that
fixes tho dato and plnco for tho assem

method of electing tho 102 delegates,
fixes their compensation, and makes

In some quarters, provents tho non

Politically, as tho districts now

Cook county, six of which nro clearly
Democratic and thirteen undoubtedly

four districts out of thirty-two that

non-partisan system of electing dele

Willingness to co-oporate In any
movement that will hotter tho trans
portation system of Chicago wns ex
pressed by Loonard A. Dusby, presi
dent of tho Chicago Surfaco Lines, In
n statement to tho city council com
mittee on local transportation. Tho
aldermen wero considering Mayor
Thompson's recommendation that for
folturo proceedings bo brought bo-
'cauBo of alleged falluro of tho surfaco
lino companies to comply with tho
terms of tho 130" ordinances. Tho
mayor's contentions wero riddled by
Wnlter L. Flshor, traction counsel for
tho city, and Mr. Dusby.
"Tho sorvlco is now tho best which
It is practical to maintain undor exist
ing physical conditions, and separate
ownership and operation of tho sur
face and olovnted lines," said Mr.
"Tho reason wo cannot get better
sorvico during tho rush hours nnd
carry moro pcoplo with greater speed
and comfort Is thnt it is physically Im
possible to operate moro cars during
tho rush hours in or through tho con
gested down town district. Thcso con
ditions In tho down town district im
pose limitations on tho sorvlco out
sido this district, for tho reason that
the main trunk lines from tho outlying
sections of tho city nearly nil run into
or through this congested torrltory.
"Tho congestion In tho territory
'from Chicago avenuo to 22d street,
and from Hoisted street to tho lake
is increasing every year, and trnfllc
conditions are growing worse.
"Tho only solution practicable Is tho
unification of the Biirfaco nnd olovnted
lines, nnd tho construction of subways
through tho congested territory. Wo
cannot stop whoro wo nro. A solution
of tho problem must bo found.
"I wish to mnko It plain that tuo
surfaco lino companies will co-oporato
with tho city In any plan which win
furnish hotter conditions."
