Ono of the big questions of tho day
Is ns to when tho Illinois constitu
tional convention shall ho called,
where It shall bo held, and how tho
102 delegntes who will sit in it nro to

tant questions that will como before
tho now Illinois legislature that as
sembles In Springfield Wednesday,
It is conceded that tho proposition
to call tho convention wus ratified on
N'ov, 5 by a majority of tho total vote
cast of nt least C0.000. Thoro seems
to bo no doubt but 'the now general
assembly, following Us constitutional
duty, will pass tho enabling act that
fixes tho dato and place for tho assem

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

Tho constitution of 1870 provides
that two delegates shall bo elected

seems to havo arisen. Closo con
struction of this section, It is claimed
in somo quarters, provents tho non
partisan election of convention dele

shall bo nominated In party primaries.
Politically, as tho districts now
stand, there nro nineteen district' In
Cook county, six of which nro clearly
Democratic and thirteen undoubtedly
Republican. Downstnto thoro aro only
four districts out of thirty-two that
nro Democratic, with twenty-eight Re
publican. This would seem lo Indlcato that it
is tho Republicans who object to tho
non-partisan systom of electing dele
gates. Tho objection, however, cornea
from Democratic quarters, chlofly
from Democrats who will bo in the

Willingness to coopernto In any
movemont that will better tho trans
portation system of Chicago was ex
pressed by Leonard A. Busby, presi
dent of tho Chicago Surfaco Lines, in
a stntomont to tho city council com
mittee on local transportation. The
nldornion were considering Mayor
Thompson's recommendation that for
feiture proceedings bo brought bo
causo of nllogcd failure of tho surfaco
lino companies to comply with tho
terms of tho 1907 ordinances. Tho
mnyor's contentions wcro riddled by
Walter L. Fisher, traction counsel for
tho city, nnd Mr. Itusby.
"Tho servico is now tho best which
it is practical to maintain under exist
ing physical conditions, it ml scparato
ownorshlp nnd operation of tho sur
faco and elevated lines," said Mr.
"Tho reason wo cannot got better
servico during tho rush hours nnd
carry moro pcoplo with groator speed
and comfort is that It is physically lm-
I posslblo to oporato moro cars during
mo rusn uours m or inrougu mo con
gested down town district. Theso con
ditions in tho down town district im
poso limitations on tho sorvlco out
sldo this district for tho reason that
tho main trunk lines from tho outlying
sections of tho city nearly all run into
or through this congested territory.
"Tho congestion In tho territory
from Chicago avenue to 22d street,
and from Halstcd street to tho lake
Is increasing every year, nnd traffic
conditions nro growing worse
"Tho only solution practicable is tho
unification of the surface nnd elevated
lines, nnd tho construction of subways
through tho congested territory. Wo
cannot stop where wo aro. A solution
of tho problem must bo found.
"I wish to mako it plain that tho
surfaco lino companies will cooperato
with tho city In any plan which will
furnish bettor conditions."

City Council Should Regulate
Conditions in the Loop.
Tho City Council should pass an or
dlnanco prohibiting pcoplo from loit

aro nt present, without any sort of
regulation, somo of tho down town
