Ono of the big questions of tho day

whero it shall bo held, and how tho
102 delegates who will sit in it aro to

tho new Illinois legislature that as

It is conceded that tho proposition
to call tho convention was ratified on
Nov. 5 by a majority of tho total voto
cast of at least 50,000. There seems
to bo no doubt but the now general
assembly, following its constitutional
duty, will pass tho enabling act that

Willingness to co-operate in any
movement that will better tho trans
portation system of Chicago was ex
pressed by Leonard A. Busby, presl
dont of tho Chicago Surfaco Lines, in
a statement to tho city council com
mitteo on local transportation. The
aldermen wore considering Mayor
Thompson's recommendation that for
feiture proceedings be brought bo
causo ot alleged failuro of tho surfaco
lino companies to comply with tho
terms of tho 1907 ordinances. Tho
mayor's contentions were riddled by
Wnltor L. Fishor, traction counsel for
tho city, and Mr. Busby.
"Tho servico is now tho best which
it is practical to maintain under exist
ing physical conditions, and scparato
ownership and operation of tho sur
faco and elovated lines," said Mr.
"Tho reason wo cannot get better
servico during the rush hours and
carry more people 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. These con
ditions in tho down town district im
pose limitations on tho servico 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 congostcd torrltory.
"The congestion in tho torrltory
from Chicago avenue to 22d street,
and from Halsted street to tho lake
is Increasing every year, and traffic
conditions aro growing worso.
"Tho only solution practicable is tho
unification of tho surfaco and elevated
lines, and tho construction ot subways
through tho congestod territory. Wo
cannot stop whero wo arc. A solution
of tho problem must bo found.
"I wish to mako it plain that tho
surface line companies will co-operato
with tho city in any plan which will
furnish better conditions."
