LOSING ITS TREES
Tho reformers of Chicago are re
sponslblo for tho rapid dlsappoaranco
of trees from tho city Btrcots. All
of tho trees were planted at tho por
sonal oxponso of householders. Tho
reformers had a city ordlnanco passod
by tho City Council forbidding tho
planting of trees without n permit
which tho cltizon would havo to go to
tho City Hall and pay for. Tho troo
owner is also prohibited by this ordl
nanco from trimming or spraying his
trees without paying for a City Hall
porralt. Honco In tho name of graft
and reform, city trees are dying off. A
defunct dally nowspapor that was do
voted to dolly reforms and that dlod
of ovorwork In this direction was re
sponsible for this outragoous ordl
nanco on account of Its influence with
feeblo minded aldermon.

Basic Law Makers Desire All to Un

To facilitate this, Chairman Wal

now constitution In black-faced Italics.
In addition, he would print for each
changed xcetlon a statement of tho
convention's purpose, what the sec
tion will permit and prohibit, and wlmt
the anticipated general effect will be.
That Is practically the system used
In New York In 11)15. It Is not up to
ithe committee of expenditures to de
cide these questions, but they must be
considered to prudently handle the
convention. To distribute by mall
such a document to every voter the
committee estimates It will cost !?."0,

reckon that L'.COO.OOO copies would be
