Ono of tho big questions of tho day

tional convontlon shall bo called,
where it shall bo hold, and how tho
102 delegates who will sit in it aro to

tant questions that will como boforo
tho new Illinois legislature that as
sembles in Springfield Wednesday,
It is conceded that tho proposition
to call tho convontlon wan ratified on
Nov. 5 by a majority of tho total voto
cast of at least GO.000. Thero seems
to bo no doubt but tho now general
assembly, following its constitutional
duty, will pass tho enabling act that
fixes tho dato and placo for tho assem

method of electing tho 102 delegates,
fixes their compensation, and makes

there Is to bo n hard fight over this
Tho constitution of 1870 provides
that two delegates shall bo elected
from each senatorial district as they
Hero' is whoro tho first argument
seems to havo arisen. Closa con
struction of this section, it is claimed
in sonio quarters, prevents tho non
partisan olcctlon of convention dele
gates, and requires that dolcgatcn
shall bo nominated in party primaries.
Politically, as tho districts no-
stand, thero aro nineteen districts in
Cook county, six of which aro clearly
Democratic nnd thirteen undoubtedly
Republican. Downstato thero aro only
four districts out of thirty-two that
nro Democratic, with twenty-eight Re
publican. This would seem to indlcato that It
is tho Republicans who object to tho
non-partisan system of electing dele
gates. Tho objection, however, comes
from Democratic quarters, chiefly
from Democrats who will bo in tho
next legislature who aro lined up at
all points against woman suffrago nnd

I BUSBY FOR
Willingness to co-oporato in any
movement that will better tho trans
portation system of Chicago was ex
pressed by Leonard A. Busby, presi
dent of tho Chicago Surfaco Lines, in
a statement to tho city council com
mitteo on local transportation, Tho
nldormen woro considering Mayor
Thompson's recommendation that for
feiture proceedings bo brought bo
causo of alleged falluro of tho surfaco
lino companlos to comply with tho
terms of tho l'J07 ordinances. Tho
mayor's contentions woro riddled by
Walter L. Fisher, traction counsel for
tho city, and Mr. Dusby.
"Tho sorvlco is now tho best which
it Is practical to maintain under exist
ing physical conditions, nnd scparato
ownership nnd operation of tho sur
faco nnd elevated lines," Bald Mr.
"Tho reason wo cannot get better
service during the rush hours and
carry moro people with greater speed
and comfort is that it Is physically lm
posslblo 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 sorvlco out
sido this district, for the 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 lako
.is increasing every year, and traftlo
conditions nro growing worse.
"Tho only solution practicable is tho
unification of tho surfaco and clovatod
linos, nnd tho construction of subways
through tho congested torrltory. Wo
cannot stop whoro wo arc. A solution
of tho problem must bo found.
"I wish to mako it plain that tho
surfaco lino companies will co-oporato
with tho city in any plan which will
furnish better conditions."
