One of tho big questions of tlio day
Is ns to when tho Illinois constitu
tional convention shall bo called,
where It shall be held, and how tho
102 delegates who will sit In It nro to
bo chosen aro among tho most impor
tant questions that will como beforo
tho new Illinois legislature that ns
somblcs In Springfield Wednesday,
It is conceded that tho proposition
to call tho convention was ratified on
Nov. r by n majority of tho total voto
cast of nt least r0,000. Thero seems
to bo no doubt but tho new general
assembly, following Its constitutional
duty, will pass tho enabling act that
llxes tho date and placo for tho assem
bling of tho convention, prescribes the
method of electing tho 102 delegates,
fixes their compensation, and makes
appropriation for tho expanses of tho
Already thero nro symptoms that
there is to bb n hard fight over this
Tho constitution of 1870 provides
that two delegates shall bo elected
from each senatorial district as they
Hero Is where tho first argument
seems to havo arisen. Close con
struction of this section, It is claimed
In Bomo quarters, prevents tho non
partisan election of convention ildlc
gates, nnd requires that delegates
shall bo nominated In party primaries,
Politically, ns tho districts now
stand, there nro nineteen districts in
Cook county, six of which nro clearly
Democratic nnd thirteen undoubtedly
Itopubllcnn. Downstnto thoro nro only
four districts out of thirty-two that
nro Democratic, with twenty-eight Re
publican. This would seem to indlcnto 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 and
who fought tho constitutional conven

Willingness to cooperates in any
movement that will better tho trans
portation Byatotn of Chicago was ex
pressed by Leonard A. Busby, presi
dent of tho Chicago Surfaco Lines, in
a Btatomont to tho city council com
mltteo on local transportation. Tho
nldormon wcro considering Mayor
Thompson's recommendation that for
feiture proceedings bo brought be
cause of alleged falluro of tho surface
lino companlos to comply with tho
terms of tho 1907 ordinances. Tho
mayor's contentions wcro riddled by
Wnltor I Fisher, traction counsel for
tho city, nnd Mr. Busby.
"Tho sorvico is now tho best which
it i3 practical to maintain undor exist
ing physical conditions, nnd scpnrato
ownership and operation of tho sur
faco nnd elovntcd lines," said Mr.
"Tho reason wo cannot got bettor
scrvlco during tho rush hours and
carry moro peoplo with greater Bpoed
and comfort is that It Is physically Im
possible to opcrato moro 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 sorvico out
sldo this district, for tho renson that
tho main trunk Hues from tho outlying
sections of tho city nearly all run into
or through this congested torrltory. j
"Tho congestion in tho torrltory
from Chicago avenuo to 22d stroot,
and from llalsted street to tho lake
is increasing ovory year, and traffic
conditions aro growing worse.
"Tho. only solution prncticablo Is tho
unification of the surfaco and elevated
lines, nnd tho construction of subways
through tho congested torrltory. Wo
cannot stop whero wo are. A solution
of tho problom must bo found.
"I wish to make It plain that tho
surfaco lino companies will co-opernto
with tho city in any plan which will
furnish better conditions."
