Ono of tlio big questions of tho day

It Is conceded that tho proposition
to call tho convention was ratified on

Willingness to cooporato In any

pressed by Leonard A. Rushy, presi
dent of tho Chicago Surface Lines, In
a statement to tho city council com
mitteo on local transportation. Tho
aldermen woro considering Mayor
Thompson's recommendation that for
felturo proceedings bo brought bo
causo of alleged failuro of tho surfaco
lino companies to comply with tho
I terms of tho 1007 ordinances. Tho
mayor's contentions wcro riddled by
Walter L. Fisher, traction counsel for
fctho city, and Mr. Busby.
i tho sorvlco is now tho best which
it is practical to maintain undor exist
ing physical conditions, and separato
ownorsuip and oporatlon of tho sur
faco and olovated lines," said Mr.
"Tho reason wo cannot get hotter
sorvlco during tho rush hours and
carry more peoplo with greater speed
and comfort is that it is physically im
possiblo to operato inoro cars during
tho rush hours in or through tho con
gested down town district. Thcso con
ditions in tho down town district Im
pose limitations on tho sorvlco 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 stroot,
and from Halstcd street to tho lake
is Increasing every year, and traffic
conditions aro growing worse.
"Tho only solution practicable is tho
unification of tho surfaco and olovated
linos, and tho construction of subways
through tho congested torrltory. Wo
cannot stop whoro wo nro. A solution
of tho problom must bo found.
"I wish to make It plain that tho
Burfaco lino companies will cooporato
