SLOW WORK BY
Basic Law Makers in Fifth
Month With Only One Com

CUT SIZE OF GRAND JURIES
Plan to Curb Crime and Reduce Ex
pense of Criminal Prosecutions
Object of Subcommittee
on Bill of Rights.
Springfield. The present week be
gins the llfth month of the session of
the constitutional convention nnd thus
fur only one committee report has
been adopted nnd tho committee of thu
whole has partially considered two
Thcpait week wns spent on the re
ports of the suffrage and public works
committee. A provision for one elec
tion n year, which some nrgued would
nbollsh primaries sent the proposed
nrtlcle on suffrage back to tho com
mittee for revision.
The committee on public works un
dertook to put through n "section re
moving nil restrictions to stnto aid to
canals and waterways. Members from
downstnte not living along- the pro
posed water route to tho gulf fought
this through the sessions of two days,
nnd there were three amendments
pending when the con-con ndjourned
for the week-end.
A subcommittee on tho bill of
rights headed by Judge Wall of Mound
City, decided to recommend to the con
stitutional convention n new Jury plan
to curb crime nnd reduco tho expenst
of criminal prosecutions.
At present tho grand Jury consists
of 23 men. Sixteen Is n quorum nnd
1!I of n quorum can voto nn Indict
ment. Tho Wall committee would have n
grand Jury of 12 men nnd permit nine
of them to return mi Indictment.
At present 11 Justice of tho pence or
a municipal Judge holds preliminary
hearing of u person charged with
crime. If there Is renson to believe
he Is guilty ho Is held to tho grand
Jury, which returns nn Indictment,
nnd the trial of tho case conies later.
The Wnll committee proposes that
the preliminary hearing shnll bo held
by n Judge of tho circuit court. If
thu Judge thinks tho defendant Is
guilty, he Is to be granted power to
permit the state's attorney to lllo nn
Information. Then the trial will fol
low, eliminating the Justlco of the
pcaco nnd grand Jury. This system
can bo applied In all except capital
punishment ciimjs, such as murder and
Another recommendation designed
to speed up Justlco In civil enscs pro-.
vldes thut nine of the Jury of twelve
mny return n verdict.
An agreement lias been renched be
tween Chicago nnd downstato mem
bers of tho convention Judiciary com
mittee to recommend the appointment
of Judges In Cool: county If the com
mitteemen so decide.
On this point Cook county members
nro to sny what shall bo recommended
nnd downstato members will decide
What their court system shnll bo.
The country members have gono
still further. They have sold that If
nil of tho delegates of Chicago will
voto for appointed Judges In Cook
county tho grent majority of down
staters will mid their O. K. That of
fer has not been ncceptcd, because of
word brought to Springfield that cer
tain politicians In Chicago hnvo com
bined to nttack any plan providing
for appointive Judges, even In Chlcngo.
Nearly every delegato behoves that
the bonding power of cities for gen
eral corporato purposes should ho
boosted. At present that power Is lim
ited to r per cent of tho nssesscd
valuntlon of all property, which Is
one-half of tho full valuation. Thu
convention will decide, us 11 minimum,
that tho cities shall hnvo power to Is
sue bonds against G per cent on tho
full vnltintlon of tho real estato only.
That means nn Increase In Chlcngo'H
borrowing power from S82,00O,0OO to
$117,IOO,"iS7, on tho present valuation.
In addition It Is proposed to give
Chicago the llunnelnl power to ncqulro
public utilities. Tho ardent advocates
of municipal ownership have been
clamoring for tlint for ninny years.
Other see a political or llunnelnl ad
vantage of n personal character In
gaining such power for tho city of
Chicago. TIipso hno been fought by
private financial Institutions nnd the
public utility corporations.
They explain they want good mar
ketable bonds and. In Hiilllclont quan
tities, If tho city Is to take over tho
utilities. They nro opposed to bonds
hecuied only by tho property of tho
utility. They favor full credit bonds
of tho city, hnvlng tho cntlro taxing
power of tho municipality behind
To ncqulro the utilities of Chicago
soimi delegates think that 10 per cent
additional bonds will ho sulllclent.
That means nn ndded bonding power
of ?23I,S:I,174. Others want 15 per
cent nddltlounl. That In bonding pow
er on tho present valuations menus
