Or.o of tlio big questions of tho day
Is ns to when tho Illinois constitu
tional convention shall bo called,
whero It shall bo held, and how tho
102 delegates who will Bit In It nro to
bo chosen aro among tho most impor
tant questions that will como beforo
tho now Illinois leglslnturo that as
sembles In Springfield Wednesday,
It Is conceded that tho proposition
to call tho convention was ratified on
Nov. R by a majority of tho total voto
cast of nt lonst GO.000. Thcro seems
to bo no doubt but tho now general
assembly, following its constitutional
duty, will pass tho enabling act that
fixes tho dato and place for tho assem
bling of tho convention, proscribes tho
method of electing tho 102 delegates,
fixes their compensation, and makes
appropriation for tho expenses of tho
Already thoro aro symptoms that
thcro is to bo n hard fight over this
Tho constitution of 1870 provides
that two delegates shall bo elected
from each senatorial district as tlioy
Horo is whore tho first argument
scorns to havo arisen. Closo con
struction of this section, it is claimed
In somo quarters, prevents tho non
partisan election ot convention dolo
gates, and requires that delegates
shall bo nominated in party primaries.
Politically, as tho districts now
stand, thoro nro nineteen district? in
Cook county, six of which nro clearly
Democratic and thirteon undoubtedly
Republican. Downstato thoro aro only
four districts out ot thirty-two that
nro Democratic, with twcnty-olght Re
publican. This would seem to indicato that It
Is tho Republicans who object to tho
non-partisan system ot electing dele
gates. Tho objection, howovcr, comes
from Democratic qunrtcrs, chlofly
from Democrats who will bo In tho
next legislature who aro lined up nt

ERATION OF LABOR
Willingness to cooporato In any
movomont that will bettor tho trans
portation oystom ot Chicago was ex
pressed by Leonard A. Busby, presi
dent of tho Chicago Surface Lines, In
n statement to tho city council com
mlttco on local transportation. Tho
aldermen woro consldorlng Mayor
Thompson's recommendation that for
feiture proceedings bo brought bo
causo ot alleged falluro of tho surfaco
lino companlos to comply with tho
terms of tho 1907 ordinances. Tho
mayor's contentions wero riddled by
Walter L. Fisher, traction counsel for
tho city, and Mr. Dusby.
"Tho scrvlco Is now tho best which
it Is practical to maintain undor exist
ing physical conditions, and, separata
ownership nnd operation of tho sur
faco and olovatcd lines," said Mr.
"Tho reason wo cannot get bottor
sorvlco during tho rush hours nnd
carry moro people with grontor speed
and comfort is that it is physically im
possible to oporato moro cars during
tho rush hours In or through tho con
gested down town district. Thoso 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 congested territory.
"Tho congestion in tho territory
from Chicago avenuo to 22d street,
and from Halstcd street to tho lako
is Increasing ovcry year, and traffic
conditions nro growing worso.
"Tho only solution practicable is tho
unification of tho surfaco and olovatod
lines, nnd tho construction ot subwnys
through tho congostcd territory. Wo
cannot stop whoro wo aro. A solution
of tho problom must bo found.
"I wish to mako It plain thnt tho
surfaco lino companies will cooporato
with tho city in any plan which will
furnish hotter conditions.
