Willingness to coopernto In any
movement Hint will bettor tho trans
portation system of Chicago was ex
pressed by Leonard A. Busby, presi
dent of the Chicago Surfaco Lines, in
a statement to the city council com
mittee, on local transportation. Tho
aldermen wero considering Mayor
Thompson's recommendation that for
feiture proceedings bo brought bo
causo of alleged failure of tho surfaco
lino companies to comply with tho
terms of the 1907 ordinances. Tho
mayor's contentions woro riddled by
Walter L. Fisher, traction counsel for
tho city, and Mr. Busby.
"Tho servlco Is now tho best which
If Is practical to maintain under exist
ing physical conditions, and separato
ownership and operation of tho sur
faco and clovatcd lines," said Lir.
"Tho reason wo cannot get bettor
servlco during tho rush hours nnd
enrry moro people with greator speed
nnd 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. Thcso con
ditions in tho down town district im-
poso limitations on tho scrvico out-
Bide this district, for tho reason that
tho main trunk lines from tho outlying
sections of tho city nenrly all run Into
or through this congestod territory.
"Tho congestion in tho territory
from Chicago avenuo to 22d stroot,
nnd from Halstod street to tho lako
is increasing overy year, and trnfUc
conditions aro growing worse
"Tho only solution practicable Is tho
unlllcation of tho surface nnd elovntod
lines, and tho construction of subways
through tho congested territory. Wo
cannot stop whero wo nro. A solution
of tho problem must bo found.
"I wish to mako It plain that tho
surfaco lino companies will co-opcrnto
with tho city in any plan which will
furnish better conditions."

Tho City Council should pass an or
