L JUNE 15
Long Session Is Feared by Basic
RATIFICATION IS NOW TOPIC
Approval by People May Not Be
Asked Until Next Spring St
Louis Wants Relief Through
Springfield. While the delegates
who liopui for mi curly adjournment
of the con-con now despair of taking
their Html leave of Springfield before
June 15, tl'py lmvo begun to discuss
seriously ilio form In which tho draft
for n new constitution Is to be sub
mitted to tho people.
GohsIu nuiong the members agrees
generally that ratification wilt be
asked at n special election next spring.
In that event the committee on
phraseology nnd stylo would have tho
custody of the proposed new constitu
tion during the delay. The draft 1ms
to be submitted within six months
nftor lis completion.
Three plans for submission are dis
cussed. One Is to submit tho drnft as
n whole, or to put the "eggs all In one
biiRket." If this Is done, few delegates
believe their work would bo ratified.
Bitter opposition Is expected to differ
ent nrtlcles nnd those who opposed
ono section would have to vote against
nit others to defent tho one.
On the other hand It might be sub
mitted so that ouch article could bo
voted on separately. This would
permit the peoplo to veto nny pro
visions. A compromise between these two
plans may be ndopted. By It tho
main part of the proposed constitution
would be submitted nnd voted upon ns
a whole; but questions such ns the
limitation of Chicago's representation
In the legislature, home rule for cities,
the Initiative nnd referendum and
others thnt developed fights thnt oth
erwise might endanger rntlflcntlou
would he left us amendments to be
voted on separately.
St. Louis wants something from tho
Illinois convention. To get It, tho St.
Louis board of estimate hns voted $12,
GOO to employ n lawyer, who will got
$12,000 moro If he Is successful.
This lobbyist Is former Judgo W. E.
Iliulley of EdwurdsUllc. 3lr. Hadley
frankly admitted his employment nnd
fee. Some tlmo ago he appeared be
fore tko convention In the commltteo
of the whole to present u new court
plan for Illinois.
Tho favor desired by St. Louis Is
the exemption from tnxntlou of Its
municipal bridge connecting with East
St. Louis. Hadley bald that this
bridge cost O.'J.'O.OOO, nnd Its annual
upkeep Is nround ?100,000. Tast St.
Louis decided that the bridge should
bo taxed, nnd the Illinois supremo
court confirmed that vlow recently.
St. Louis wants to nullify that de
cision. Hadley said that the brldgo
is five. East St. Louis residents
claim thnt the original ordlnanco un
der which It was built prevents It
from being wholly free unless the ordl
nanco Is amended nnd approved by the
St. Louis electorate. It Is asserted
thnt only part of the bridge Is free.
On tho other hand, Hadley privately
contends that the act of congress
permitting tho construction prevents
It from being anything else except a
On tho Illinois supreme court de
cision East St. Louis Is entitled to $18,
000 In tuxes yearly for tho railroad
approach only, hut It l-assorted by
homo East St. Louis calculators that

center of tho Mississippi river between
$25,000 nnd $110,000 could bo collected
Other residents of East St. Louis

000. St. Cialr county 7,500, tho stato
!j0,750, nnd lovon bonrd $35,000, nnd
the pnrk board $1,000.
Therefoie East St. Louis has start
ed n fight uglnst tho object of tho
Hadley lobby. It lins sent n letter to
-very dehyaie signed by Its corpora
tion counsel. II. L, Browning.
The city omiell of East St. Louis
got busy and adopted resolutions, part
of which lend:
"Resolved, That the city of East St.
Louis protests against such exemption
and urge Its citizens nnd nil taxing
bodies of this stale to oppose tho udop
tlon of such piovlslon In tho consti
tution, both In iho convention and In
tho election nt which the snmo will

Delegnto rnrlstrom of Aledo gave,
notice to tho convention that In tho
future bo will object to tho Introduc
tion of proposals by unnnlmous con
sent. Tho tlmo limit for proposals
expired March 1, but under tho rules
they may bo offered by consent of
tho delegates. Tho commlleo on edu
cation killed this proposal proUdlng
for tho creation of a stato educational
commission, with nn understanding
thnt tho portion which refers to censor

commltteo on bill of rights.
Edward W. Evert, tho well known
lawyer, is frequently talked ot for
congress by his many political friends.
Ho is said to have no ambition in this
direction, but his popularity would
cause his election to almost any offlco
