Willingness to cooperate In any
movemont that will better tho trans
portation syfUom of Chicago was' ex
pressed by Leonard A. Busby, presi
dent of tho Chicago Surface Lines, In
a statement to tho city council com
mltteo on local transportation, Tho
nldcrmcn were considering Mayor
Thompson's recommendation that for
feiture proceedings bo brought bo
cnuso of alleged failure of tho surface
lino companies to comply with tho
terms of tho 1807 ordinances. Tho
mayor's contentions were riddled by
Walter L. Fisher, traction counsel for
tho city, and Mr. Husby.
"Tho scrvico Is now tho best which
It is prncttcnl to nmlntnln under exist
ing physical conditions, nnd scpnrato
ownership nnd operation of tho stir
faco and olovnted lines," snlfl Mr.
"Tho reason wo cannot get better
servlco (luring tho rush hours and
carry moro peoplo with grcutor speed
and comfort Is that it Is physically Im
possible to operate moro cars during
tho rush hours In or through tho con
gested down town district. These con
ditions In tho down town district lm
poso limitations on tho scrvico 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 avenuo to 22d street,
nnd from Halstcd street to tho lnko
is increasing every year, and traffic
conditions nro growing worse.
"Tho only solution practicable Is tho
unification of tho surface nnd elevated
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 tho
surface lino companies will co-opernto
with tho city In any plan which will
furnish better conditions."
