Politically, ns tho districts now

Democratic and thirteen undoubtedly
Republican. Downstnto there are only
four districts out of thirty-two that

Willingnoss to co-oporato in any
movement that will bettor tho trans
portation system ot Chicago was ex
pressed by Leonard A. Dusby, presi
dent of tho Chicago Surfaco Linos, In
a stntomont to tho city council com
mltteo on local transportation. Tho
nldormon were considering Mayor
Thompson's recommendation that for
feiture proceedings bo brought bo
causo ot alleged failure of tho surfaco
lino companies to comply with tho
terms of tho 1907 ordinances. Tho
i mayor's contentions were riddled by
Waltor L. Fisher, traction counsel for
tho city, nnd Mr. Dusby.
"Thn 'sorvico is now tho best which
it is practical to maintain undor exist
ing physical conditions, and separata
ownership and dporntlon of tho sur
faco and olovntcd lines," snld Mr.
"Tho reason wo ennnot get better
service during tho rush hours and
carry moro.peoplo with greater speed
and comfort is that it is physically Im
possible to operate more cars during
tho rush hours In or through tho con
gested down town district. Thcso con
ditions in tho down town district im
poso limitations on tho sorvico out
sldo this district, for tho reason that
tho mnln trunk lines from tho outlying
sections of tho city nenrly all run Into
or through this congoatod territory.
"Tho congeatlon in tho territory
from Chicago nvcnuo .to 22d street,
and from Halstcd street to tho lake
Is Incrcnalng ovcry year, and traffic
conditions are growing worse.
"Tho only solution practicable Is tho
unification of tho surface nnd olovated
lines, nnd tho construction of subways
through tho congested torrltory. Wo
cannot stop whero wo nro. A solution
of tho problem must bo found.
"I wish to mnko It plain that tho
surfaco lino companies will co-oporato
with tho city in any plan which will
furnish hotter conditions."
