DR. J. A. WHEELER.
In the house tomorrow morning when
two special orders of interest 'are to
be taken up. One of these is the great
er Chicago resolution. The order is
the resolution ' instructing the state
architect to prepare plans for Improve
ments at the state fair buildings.
Wheeler to Defend the Architect.
The last named resolution is likely
to be productive of a considerable
r: mount of oratory. When it "was in
trouced by the appropriatons commit
tee it was aeVompanlcd with some se
vere criticisms on the architect and his
office. At that time Wheeler asked
that action on the resolution be post
poned in order that he might make an
investigation of the charge that the
architect was drawing fees illegally. It
is expected .that he avIU address the
house in defense of the architect.
CITV AND COUNTY ISHAKMOMOU9
Chicago Members Rouse the Ire of the
l'eoplo from the Sooth.
The greater Chicago resolution is
likely to encounter some opposition
from the county members which was
Dot expected to develop when It was
presented. The opposition of the Cook
county members to the proposed in
crease in the percentage of tax limita
tion, which is,demanded by a number
of southern Illinois counties, has
brought about threats of retaliation,
and .unless this difference is adjusted
the friends of the resolution will find
many, .of the men from the country
districts lined up against them.
" There is a pretty well denned di
vision lietween the country and' the
x-ity already, and it has been in evi
dence at recent committee, meetings
on the house side. Only a day or two
ago the comiliittceou municipal corpor
ations voted -down a proposed amend
nieut.to a bill which was designed to
give the city council of Chicago discre
tion, iu some minor matter, the coun
try members out-voting those from the
city on ,the proposition. The feeling
of rural legislators was -expressed by
Representative Tippit, who said in the
committee, meeting: "The men from
Chicagoareaiways asking us to protect
them from their common council in
tax matters, and if the council can't
be trusted along this line it can't b
trusted in other directions."
The country, up to the present time,
bas been used Tery effectively-against
the Chicago sanitary district bill. Ott
er have been rsed asajnst
vai JH, lf V
tnese measures, not the least of which
has been a considerable opposition
from Cook county, but these would not
be effective if the country members
were in a, better frame of mind. The
bills are still in committee and the
most heroic measures to get them on
the floor of either house, have failed
Even though the country members
withdraw their opposition the bills are

what complicated the situation, und
Beveral members who otherwise would
have supported the bill will now vote
against It. On the other hand there
are many who have little sympathy
with civil service reform, and who
have lecn working openly or secretly
against the bill, but who will now
vote for it on the theory that the
people should have an opportunity to
determine whether or not a civil serv

circumstances it is probable that the
bill will pass the house by a fair ma
jority. The friends of civil service
who wish to secure the passage of a
law that shull become immediately

The convict labor bill prepared by

tions and labor and industrial affairs
is a special order for Wednesday. It
is on the order of second reading. Up
to the present time no opposition to
the bill has developed, but it may be
amended wh?n it is taken up.
The following bills are among those
on the order of third reading, ready to

Johnson's bill giving Cook' county
circuit aud suierior courts power to

Lyons to regulate the speed of au

Stewart's and Morris' bills to amend
the election laws in accordance with
the recommendations of the Cook
county election commissioners.
Itapp's bill to repeal the law requir
ing burial permits in rural districts.
The consideration of the resolution
to the respect of Hon. David T. Little
is a special order in the senate for to
morrow morning. The following are
among the bills on the order of third
reading in that body:
Mueller's, for the licensing of agents
of unauthorized insurance companies.
Juul's bills, amending the practice

Clark's and Campbell's bills to per

INVITATION TO THE PRESIDENT
Asked to Stop In Springfield Long Enough
Springfield, Ills., March 23. Govern
or Yates and the state officers are de
sirous that President Itooseveit stop
long enough at Springfield on his west

officers was held In the governor's of

"We understand that your western
itinerary this spring will make it pos
sible for you to make a brief stop at
Springfield. All the state officers unite
with me in desiring to entertain you afi

A. F. Greaser Meets With Accident
in lioardiDjc.din Street
Edward Olson, a lineman in the em

had a narrow escape from death
front handling- -a live wire Saturday
afternoon. As it was, prompt restora
tives brought him back to conscious
ness, and he will probably be entirely
recovered in a day or two.
During the afternoon he was work
ing, in company with Albert P.urton,
on the company's lines west of Au-
gustana college. About 4 o'clock a
test of the lines was made nt the No.
y bono house and the lights refused
to;biurn. The two liiieirrriis.lliefi.irix
turned to the place where they-had
veit working and Olson, ttioh lloldtif
the wire thai, had been tested, which
was down. Instantly his hand closed
over it with a convulsive grip and he
sank to Ihe ground.
Mr. Imrton hastened to his assist
ance and with a stick pried his hand
free. Olson then became unconscious
and remained so for some time. Mr.
Uurton, being alone set to work vig
orously to induce artificial respira
tion and was finally rewarded by not
ing signs of returning consciousness.
Word was finally sent to the police
station and the ambulance and medi
cal attendance were procured. On the
way to the hospital Mr. Olson recover
