Ono of tho big questions of tho day
Is as to when Ilia Illinois constitu
tional convention shall bo called,
whero It shall bo hold, and how tho
102 delegates who will sit in It tiro to
bo chosen aro among tho most Impor
tant questions that will como boforo
tho now Illinois legislature that as
sembles in Springfield Wednesday,
It Is conceded that tho proposition
to call tho convention was ratified on
Nov. 6 by a majority of tho total voto
cast of at least 60,000. Thoro seoms
to bo no doubt but tho now goncrnl
assembly, following its constitutional
duty, will pass tho enabling act that
Axes tho dato and placo for tho assem
bling of tho convention, proscribes tho
method of electing tho 102 dologates,
fixes their compensation, nnd makes
appropriation for tho oxpensos of tho

thcro Is to bo a hard fight over tbts
Tho constitution of 1S70 provides
that two dolegates shall bo olocted
from each senatorial district as thoy
Hero is whero tho first argument
scorns to liavo arisen. Close con
struction of this section, it is claimed
In sorao quartern, prevents tho non
partisan olectton of convention dele
gates, and requires that delegates
shall bo nominated in party primaries.
Politically, tiH tho districts now

Cook county, six of which aro clearly
Democratic and thlrtcon undoubtedly
Republican. Downstato thoro aro only
four districts out of thirty-two that
aro Democratic, with twenty-eight Re
publican. This would seem to Indlcato that It
Is tho Republicans who object to tho
non-partisan system of oloctlng dolo
gates. Tho objection, howover, comes
from Democrntio quarters, chiefly
from Domocrats who will bo in tho

Willingness to co-oporato In any
movement that will bettor tho trans
portation system of Chicago was ox
pressed by Leonard A. Buaby, presi
dent of tho Chicago Surface Lines, In
a statomont to tho city council com
mittees on local transportation. Tho
ntdor'mon wero considering Mayor
Thompson's rocommondation that for
fotturo proceedings bo brought bo
causa of alleged fallnro of tho surface
lino companlos to comply with tho
terms of tho 1907 ordinances. Tho
mayor's contentions woro riddled by
Walter L. Flshor, traction counsel for
tho city, and Mr. Busby.
"Thn sorvlco is now tho best which
it is practical to maintain under exist
ing physical conditions, and soparato
ownorshlp nnd operation, of tho sur
face nnd olovated linos," said 'Mr.
"Tho reason wo cannot get bottor
sorvlco during tho rush hours and
carry more pooplo with greater spoed
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. These con
ditions in tho down town district im
poso limitations on tho sorvlco out
sido 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 torritory.
"Tho congestion in tho territory
from Chicago avenuo to 22d street,
ant from Malstod streot to tho lako
is increasing ovory year, and traffic
conditions are growing worso.
"Tho only solution practicable Is tho
unification of tho surfaco and olovated
linos, and tho construction of subways
through tho congested torritory. Wo
cannot stop wlioro wo aro. A solution
of tho problem must bo found.
"I wish to mako It plain that tho
surfaco lino companlos will co-oporato
with tho city in any plan which will
furnish bottor conditions."
