THE NEW STATE.
The Chicago 'Times' does not agree
withTitK DULLETiNintho bcllut thai tho
" tato of Chicago" should bo comprised ol
the entire north part of tho present stita
of Illinois. The 'Times' believes that
Cook, Dul'agnand Ltko counties should
comprise tho proposed new state, became
small states aro tbo best governed and
thoso throa counties would mko a small
state. Tbo 'Times' wanls to got out of the
statoof Illinois becatiio tho stato of Illi
nois Is too inrgp. Wo sgreo with tlo
'Times' in the opinion thai Illinois is too
largo fur g"od government ; it is too larao
at tho north end. Tho siz? of the north
md has worked tnlschief to tho
south end. At tho north is
most nf tho wealth, and that wealth is
not tnxtd nl moro than hall its value. At
tho south Is liltlo wealth but every cent
that is hero pivs tuxes. At the north
nbido most of the voters, tind they always
voto to tbo disadvantage of tho south
Thus llio north part of tho sta'.o opprtssos
the loiith part. Wherefore wo are willing
that tho north purl shall go hence, and
without delay. Wo want a smaller state,
so that wo may bo belter governed.
I'ho sumo reason that makes
tho 'Times' so solflsh as to desiro a very
small state leads us to deprecate tho wib
of thnt paper to compel us to re
main in a slate as largo us Illinois
would bo with so (mall a pleco of its terri
tory as lies within tho limits of C"ok, I)u-
l'agu Hnd Lako cut oil. Tho 'Times' should
be fair. It is not fair lodcsiro nil good for
oni-self It is the south ruthor tbun llio
north that hat rutlered from tho slza of
Illinois, atid consequently wo wish to get
into a small stato. Wr, thorefore, sug
gested that Cook ihould tako In her sccos
sion all of the state north of tho south
lino of Sangamon ; but, wo aro inclined to
bo nccotn.uiodntlni;, and.allhnugh tho pres
ence of.tipringfluld in any stato is to bo de
precated, to gut rid of Uhictgo, wo would
not object to a lino run across the ilato
