PROPERTY OWNERS PAY.
Illinois daily papers lmvo long boon
kicking nbout the failure of abutting,
property owners to keep uidownlks
clean for their nowstands. A pro
posal to authorize Chicago nud other
Illinois cities and towns to compel
prcpetty owners to keep tholr sldo
walks clear ot snow nud lco in winter
tlmo has slipped out ot tho coinmltteo
on distinction between constitutional
and legislatlvo subjects. Tho coin
mltteo with this high sounding nnmo
is bettor known among members of
tho convention nt Springfield as tho
"wasto basket." x
Tho slippery sidewalk proposal is
tho only measure which hus passed
tho eagle-eyed scrutiny of this com
mltteo and been saved from "tho
wasto basket." Its frlonds nro oponly
elated at their victory. Tho commit
tee has voted unanimously that tho
question ot permitting Illinois cities
to forco proporty owners to keep their
sidowalks safo from tho snow and lco'
of winter is a proper subject for tho
convention to consider in making tho
new constitution. Tho legislature and
city councils aro aliko powerless un
der rulings of our Supremo Court In
Finds It Constitutional Matter.
Under Instructions from tho "waste
batket" committee, headed by Chair
man Cyrus 13. Dietz, a lawyer of Mo
line, Delegate Edwaid Corlott, n nows
paper proprietor in Jollet, has pro
pared tho committee's report, which
ho will presont to tho convention
Tuesday. Tho report says:
"Your committee on distinction be
tween constitutional and legislative
nubjects, to which proposal No, 2S1;
entitled; 'A proposal to provide for
tho removal of snow and lco from
nidowalks was roforred, ropoits that
upon consideration of tho proposal and
the authorities, which control tho
question involved, It is tho opinion of
tho members ot tho commltteo that
tho proposal is n constitutional sub
ject. "Therefore, as your committee is
without authority to consider tho pro
posal upon Its merits, tho commltteo
recommends that tho proposal bo re
ferred to the proper commltteo for
consideration of the proposal upon its
"Tho Supremo Court of Illinois has
held that a city has not tho constitu
tional power to require tho owner or
occupant of premises to keep the side
walk in front thereof free from snow."

HIS 1920 CENSUS
Samuel U Rogers, the mnn who
Is taking the 10U0 census, seems to
he doing well by his country. Any
way, every tiny or two he gcta on tho
first imgo with some figures which
show that apparently every city in the
United Stntcs has grown substantially
slnco tho 1010 census was taken.
Chicago, for example, has appar
ently about 2,833,000 Inhabitants, nn
Increase" of nbout 32 per cent. On
this showing It Is probably tho third
city of the world, with only London
and New York ahead of It.
Mr. Rogers nlso announces that
Dnyton, O., has now n population of
ICIt.&'lO, nn Increase of 31.1 per cent.
Dayton ranked as fifth Ohio city nnd
forty-third city of the country in pop
