WHY CHICAGO IS
LOSING ITS TREES
Tho roformors of Chicago nro ro
spnnBlblo for tho rapid dlsnpponranco
of trees from tho city strcots. All
of tho trees wero planted at tho per
sonal expense of householdorri. Tho
roformors hud n city ordinance passed
by tho City Council forbidding tho
planting of treos without a porralt
which tho citizen would havo to go to
tho City Hall and pay for. Tho treo
ownor is also prohibited by this ordi
nance from trimming or spraying his
treos without paying for a City Hall
permit. Honco In tho nanio of graft
and roform, city trees nro dying off. A
dofunct dally nowapapor that was do
voted to dolly reforms and that died
of overwork In this direction was re
sponsible for this outrageous ordl
nanco on account of Its Influence with
feoblo minded nhlormon.

Springfield. Tho need or n short
ballot mis niie of the iirguinents most
friMiut'iitly uved for culling the consti
tutional convention, ltni that subject
has nut recently been talked much.
A MilTriigL section likely to ho voted
on this week will lengthen the Imltot
by reducing the number of elections to
one 11 cnr. That will be hold on 11
holiday In Xo ember imminll.v, mid
"elections Mmll not be held on any
other day" unles the constitution Is
changed or congress decrees othcrwl.se.
If this Hiicceeils, iM'ohnbly certain
delegates will argue later that tho need
for it short ballot has been reduced
materially, If not eliminated. Dele
gatts nlreiidy lime hinted that the
chief complaint now Is against the
number of elections mid consequent
cost rather than the number of names
on thu ballot. There will be four
elections downstate this month and
seven within the llrst half of this
The ngeucy which collects Informa
tion for the conxentluii has reported
that the "dllllcullle.s nnd objections
arising fiotn the large blanket ballot
In Illinois are more serious In Chicago
mid Cook county than In other parts
of Illinois, on account of the greater
complexllj of local government and
tho larger number of elective olllecs
In the uictropnlliun communlt.x. Itut
even In other pails of the slate the
problem of Intelligent wiling at the
November elections Is puzzling to the
ablest voter. Outside of Chicago Ihe
illlllcultles caused by the number of
separate local elections are greater
than In Chicago."
The plan recommended by the snf
frage coininltlee will abolish the non
partisan election scheme In Chicago
for ahlermeii and all primaries, accoid
Ing lo constitutional experts.
vThe legislative reference bureau has
told the convent Ion that there are
"twleo as many vtnle and local oilleluls
to be elected ill Chicago urn! Cook
county as In other counties." adding
that, "omitting Judges and local "Ul
cers elected nt other times, the voters
throughout Illinois are called upon nt
the quadrennial November election to
wdo for about twenty stale anil local
olllcers and. In addition, 2i presidential
electors, u total of about llfty. The
ballot at these elections regularly has
tho nniuc!) of 100 to IfiO candidates for
state nnd local olllce.s and. when can
dhlates for presidential electors are
added, from 'J00 to H.'-O names. A
tjplcnl ballot for a dnwnsinto district
In 11)10 contained tho names of '-'1
candidates for -ID olllecs."
On what action the constitutional
convention shnll lake on pensions there
Is n sharp difference of opinion In tho
legislative committee. One side, most
of whom are Interested In politics, de
sires a simple authorization of pen
sions; tho other side, most of whom
nto Interested In business, want 11 man
datory plan that will compel a solxent
pension system. Three subcommittee
reports havo been prepared, but none
of them has been accepted.
Tho employees want tho constitution
to recognize it contraetural relation
ship botwenn tho employee and his
stato or city regarding pensions. There
are moro than 77,000 employees.
There Is an estimated deficiency of
$70,000,000 In tho pension funds of tho
stnte ut present; the raising of that
will largely fall on the taxpayers.
Other subcommittees of tho legisla
tive committee have prepared reports,
which appear more acceptnblo to tho
entire membership. One of these will
ll- the salary of a legislator for the
next session after tho adoption of the
now coiislltutlon at S.'l.fiOO a year. This
Is heaping coals of lire on tho legisla
ture, which decided that constitution
milkers wero only worth $2,000 each.
Another subcommittee will recom

of commercial trawlers who are
