things by express In like not sending
things at nil only when you tlon't
rfoml anything you have nothing to
worry about. Sometimes things sent

Chicago oters will never favor n
new constitution that will deprive her
voters of their Just rights.
The scheme most In favor with tho
downbtuto group which Is backing
tho off oi t, Is to glvo each county,
without regard to population, ono
member of tho house of representa

population but never enough to glvo
Chicago a majority of tho house, no
matter how Inrgo a proportion this
county might contain of tho total
population of tho state.
Under this plan, according to Fred
eric H. Uo Young of ilurny. ono

as 34:1 voters In Cook County. Again,
there are twenty-seven counties In
tho stuto whobo aggregato population
Is only equal to that of Cook County
outside Chicago. They would havo
twenty-seven members In tho house
and Cook County, outside of Chicago,
would havo six or seven.
Tho voters or Chicago and Cook
County will otp against any such
scheme ax this It Is repugnant to
ovory Just idea of popular gourn-
