ELECTION OF DELEGATES TO
THE CONSTITUTIONAL CON
VENTION. Nonpartisan election of delegates
to the constitutional convention Is
urged In a bulletin Issued by the
Citizens Association. Tho officers
put forth arguments to bear out their
contention that a partisan election is
not desirable. Tho leglalUuro will
fix the manner of electing tl'O 102 del
egates, two from each senatorial dis
trict. The main points set out in tho bul
"One of tho most important things
that the Cist General Assembly will
have to do this winter will bo to leg
islate for tho election of 102 dele
gates to the constitutional conven
tion. As stated in urtlclo 14 of tho
present constitution, It will bo tho
duty of tho General Assembly at Its
coming session to 'provldo for a con
vention, to consist of doublo tho num
ber of members of tho senate, to bo
elected in tho samo manner at tho
samo places and in the samo dis
tricts.' "It is generally conceded that con
stitutional rovislon should bo
worked out on a piano cntlroly nbovo
partisanship. It is evident that a
convention mado up of delegates
elected on a party basis rather than
on account of special fitness would
nelthor bo likely to do its work well
nor to insplro public confldonco.
Thcroforo, most persons who have
given thought to tho matter aro
strongly of tho opinion thnt it Is
highly desirable, from tho standpoint
ot tho public, that tho delegates to
tho constitutional convention bo
chosen, if possible, on n nonpartisan
But there seems to bo serious doubt
as to whether a nonpartisan plan of
nominating and of electing tho dele
gates would bo constitutional in Illi
nois. This doubt is based upon a so
called strict construction ot tho lan
guage of tho present stato constitu
tion, under which tho phraso 'In tho
samo mannor' is construed to mean
that all existing statutes, as woll as
all provisions ot tho stato constitu
tion, governing tho nomination and
election of senators, apply also to tho
nomination and election ot dolegates.
A moro liberal construction ot tho
phraso 'In tho samo manner' Is that
it was intended to refer only to tho
provisions qt tho constitution Itsolt in
regard to tho nomination and elec
tion of senators.
"This samo question nroso in con
nection with tho election of delegates
to tho Ohio constitutional conven
tion In 1911. Tho Ohio constitution
provided that delegates should bo
chosen 'in tho same manner' as mom
bors ot tho Ohio houso of representa
tives. Tho Ohio legislature was ad
vised by tho attorney general of that
stato that tho words 'In tho samo
manner' meant only tho mannor sot
forth in tho constitution for choosing
representatives. So, in splto .of tho
fact that Ohio then choso its repre
sentatives under primary and elec
tion law3 similar to our own, tho
Ohio legislature passed an act under
which tho dolegates to the Ohio con
stitutional convention of 1912 woro
nominated by petition only, and wcro
voted for on a separate ballot; which
boro no party designations. This law
wan approved by Gov. Judson Har
mon, who had served as attorney
general of the United States. Tho
constitutionality of tho law was novor
questioned In tho courts.
"As a result of placing tho election
ot dolegates on this broad nonparti
san basis many high grado men
throughout tho stato woro led to bo
como candidates, tho personnel ot
tho convention was notably flno and
most of its work was ratified when
submitted to tho people.
"In replying on Nov. 30 to a letter
from tho president ot this associa
tion, Informing him of tho formation
ot tho abovo named commlttco, Gov.
Lowden wrote: 'I am glad this com
mlttco has been appointed, and I
aopo they will find somo way by
which partisan nominations may ho
"Tho report of tho commlttoo will
bo published when tho commlttco has
llnishcd its task."

Chiropractic What It Is.
Chiropractic (Klro-prak-tlk) is tho
Sclcnco ot locating tho causo ot dis
oaso and tho Art ot romovlng it by
adjusting tho splno, which rollovcs
pressuro on tho nerves and allows
naturo's lltospark, or norvo energy, to
flow freoly to and from tho brain.
Tho causo ot dlseaso, as tho Chiro
practor finds it, Is n subluxation of ono
or moro of tho vortobrao which doo
crease tho slzo ot tho opening through
which tho spinal nerves pass, and
impinge or press thorn, honco shut oft,
a portion ot tho norvo supply to tho
organs or parts, and tho result will bo
dlseaso, deranged functional activity.
A normal norvo supply to any organ
or part ot tho human body generates
normal function and maintains health.
In adjusting tho vortobrao to ro
lcaso tho pressure, tho Chiropractor
uses and ncods nothing but his hands.
Tho whole object of his work is com
pleted when this prossuro is removed.
Naturo does tho curing. In somo cases
dally adjustments aro necessary for a
tlmo. In other cases, howovor, throo
adjustments a weok will bring splon
did rosults. Tho Chiropractor should
bo tho judgo ns to tho frcquoncy of
"No matter how strango, unusual,
or oven opposed to established cus
tom or belief an idea may bo, It Its
clnims provo to bo in harmony with
nil tho essential facts concornlng tho
subject to which tho idoa is rolated,
it is truo and valuablo and should bo
accepted." Investigate and intorvlow

Important Information concerning
tho registration of Liberty Loan bonds,
ns given out by tho bond department
of tho Federal Rcscrvo Dank of Chi
cago contains tho following quotation
from a letter from tho Treasury de
partment: "With referenco to accepting sub
scriptions for bonds to bo registered
in tho names of persons giving only
initials rather than tho full namo, I
havo to say that It is tho Intent of tho
Department, not for Its own sako, but
for tho sako of holders of registered
bonds, to havo them registered in such
manner ns to cnablo tho said holders,
or their legal roprcsontatlvcs, to dis
pose of them in tho simplest and
roadlcst manner. Bonds issued to
womon under their initials, or undor
tho Initials of their husbands, aro not
readily transferable in caso of tho
death of tho holder.
"Though letters of administration
would bo issued in tho legal namo of
tho doccased, and tho bonds would bo
inscribed in her namo, undor hor In
itials, or thoso of her husband, as tho
caso might be. Tho letters of admin
istration and tho bonds would not
ngrco ns to tho namo, and thcroforo
tho administrator of Mrs. Sarah A.
Smith, say, would havo to provo that
sho and Mrs. Thomas W. Smith (or
Mrs. S. Smith) woro ono and tho samo
porson. It is to avoid troubles ot this
character that tho Dopartmont has In
sisted on receiving tho legal namo ot
porsons subscribing for registered
"Of course, tho Dopartmont cannot
rotuso to Issuo bonds undor Initials if
tho parties interested insist upon it,
but it is requested that you, in all
cases whero it is possible, insist on
receiving tho full names of .persons
subscribing for registered bonds."
