Ono of tlio big questions ot tho day
Is tiB to when tho Illinois constitu
tional convention shall bo called,
whoro It shall bo held, and how tho
102 delegates who will sit In It nro to
I... .1mxn. an n ... n I lw (.. Itllttnl. !
tant questions that will como before
tho now Illinois legislature that as
sembles In Springfield Wednesday,
It Is conceded that the proposition
to call tho convention was ratified on
Nov. C by n majority of tho total voto
cast of nt least GO.000. Thero seems
to bo no doubt but the now general
assembly, following its constitutional
duty, will pass tho enabling act that r
fixes the dato nnd placo for tho assem
bling of tho convention, proscribes the
method of electing tho 102 delegates,
fixes their compensation, and makes
appropriation for tho oxpcnsqs of tho
Already thoro aro symptoms that
there ts to bo n hard light over this
Tho constitution of 1S70 provides
Hint two delegates shall bo elected
from each senatorial district as they I
Hero Is whoro tho first argument
seems to have arisen. Closo con
struction of this section, it Is claimed
In some quarters, prevents tho non
partisan election of convention dele
gates, and requires that delegates,
shall bo nominated In party primaries.
Politically, as tho districts now
stand, thoro nro nineteen district In
Cook county, bIx of which nro clearly
Democratic nnd thlrleon undoubtedly
Republican. Downstato thoro nro only
four districts out of thirty-two thnt
nro Democratic, with twenty-clglit Re
publican. This would seem to lndicato that it
Is tho Republicans who object to tho
non-partisan systom of electing dele
gates. Tho objection, however, comes
from Democratic quarters, chiefly
from Democrats who will bo in tho
noxt legislature who nro lined up nt
all points against woman suffrago and
who fought tho constitutional conven
tion proposal at all stages of its logls-

Willingness to coopornto in any
movomont thnt will bettor tho trans
portation system of Chicago was ex
pressed by Leonard A. uusby, presi
dent of the Chicago Surfnco Lines, In
n statement to tho city council com
mlttoo on local transportation. Tho
aldermen wero considering Mayor
Thompson's recommendation that for
folturo proceedings bo brought bo
causo of nlloged falluro of tho surface
lino compnnlos to comply with tho
terms ot tho 1907 ordinances. Tho
mayor's contentions wero riddled by
Walter L-. Fisher, traction counsel for
tho city, nnd Mr. Busby.
"Tho servlco is now tho best which
it Is practical to maintain under exist
ing physical conditions, and separato
ownership nnd operation of tho sur
fnco nnd clovnted lines," sold Mr.
"Tho reason wo cannot get bolter
sorvlco during tho rush hours nnd
carry moro peoplo with groator speed
and comfort Ib that it Is physically Im
possible to opcrnto 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 sorvlco out
sldo this district, for tho reason that
tho main trunk lines from tho outlying
sections of tho city nearly nil run Into
or through this congostcd territory.
"Tho congestion in tho territory
from Chicago nvcnuo to 22d street,
nnd from Hnlsted street to tho lnko
Is Increasing ovcry year, nnd traffic
conditions nro growing worse.
"Tho only solution practicable is tho
unification of tho surfaco and olovntod
linos, 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 tho
surfaco lino companies will co-opornto
with tho city In any plan which will
furnish better conditions."
