Comes Upjn the Legislature and
Does Not Reach a Vote
ATTEMPT TO RESTRAIN EES POWER
By Limiting Bi City's Strength In
the Senate Fails Senate Passes
Springfield, Ills., March 2.". "Great
er Chicago," or "new charter" resolu
tion was taken up in the house yester
day morning immedately after the
reading of the jourm: Wilkerson, of
Cook county, addressed the house in fa
vor of the proposed amendment to the
constitution. Wilkerson spoke elo
quently of the growth and the great
ness of Chicago, and then described the
necessity for a new scheme of munici
pal government, lie declared that
there was necessity for a consolidation
of the various town governments in
Chicago, but said they could not have
this consolidation because of the con
stitutional prohibition against special
Chicnffn United fur the Measure.
Great improvements were necessary,
he said, but they could not be lurtl be
cause of the o per cent, limitation.
Neither could the city secure needed
reform in its petit courts under the
present constitution. For years the
men of fcrains and energy In Chicago
had been laltoiing with the proposi
tion of municipal government. The
proposed "amendment was the result.
It had the stsimp of approval of all the
various organizations interested iu this
matter and the. citizens were practical
Nohe Uas His Little Joke.
Awstitj, of Cook county, offered an
amendment to the resolution which
provided that in the event Chicago
was separated 'from-Cook county- not
more than one county should be form
ed of the territory outside. Austin said
that he had canvassed the members
from the- .territory in Cook county out
side of Chicago, and that four-fifths
of them were In favor of a single
"There are only thmvountry mem
bers, from Cook," Interjected Xohe;
"how many are four-fifths of three?"
After some further debate the
amendment was tabled 71 to 3.
WOULD CUKII CHICAGO'S POWER
Ecblagenhaur Wants to Limit the Nntnbet
of Senatorial Districts.
Fehlagenhai-.f presented an amend
ment providing that in any subsequent
senatorial apportionment the city of
Chicago Khan be limited to seventeen
senatorial districts. Church spoke
against this amendment, and declared
that its purpose was to kill the reso
lution. "This question of limiting the
representation of Chicago was fought
out in Jhe last legislature," said
Church, "and the only purpose in
bringing it up at this time must be a
desire te defeat the resolution. I move
to table the amendment."
Schlagetihauf denied that his pur
pose was' to kill the resolution. "It is
high time," s-aid TSchlagenhauf, "that
the balance of the state was taking
care of itself in the matter of Chi
cago's representation in .the legisla
ture. Our' experience is that the mem
bers who come to this legislature from
Cook county vote for Chicago, and for
Chicago alone, and that they do not
give any material assistance in legis
lating for the remainder of the state.
They will vote for any old men sure so
it does not affect Chicago, and they
have-no notion of responsibility to any
other portion of Illinois.
Patterson asked Schlagenhauf
whether hedid not lelleve in majori
ty representation. . Sehlagenhauf re
plied that he did, 'and that this was
what lie was righting for. He did
not want "one county to rule the en
tiro state. "In all of the cities where
charters' f this sort have been grant
ed," said Schlagenhauf, "this sort of
limitation has been adopted. It was
done in Boston, Philadelphia and New
York." Schlagenhauf's amendment
was tabled VT to 47.
The "roll was then called on the
adoption of the resolution. As It be
came apparent that the necessary 102
votes cejld r?ot be secured Schurtleff,
before fhe result was announced,
moved that the further consideration
of the resolution be postponed until
Wednesday of next week. This motion
prevailed. Yesterday's vote stood

were: Bakus, Farley, Hardin, Hinds,

were seventy "absent" and "not vot

The house then took up the resolu
tion prepared by the appropriations
committee Instructing the state archi
tect to prepare, immediately without
compensation in addition to his salary,
such plans and specifications as may
be required by the several state insti
tutions - designated in the resolution.
Wheeler had read from the, clerk'a
desk u printed statement by the state
architect explaining the-several itesirf
of expense that had been incurred, and
which had been the subject of criti
cism, - ' . ; -
The statement showed- that from
July 1, 1S00, the date of-the creation
of the architect's office, t6 March 20,
lOOSj ;tbf total - expenses - of- the archi-
tecTs oUTee In the preparation of plans
and specifications for all of the state
Institutions were $13,420.39, ami that
based upon the cost of the buildings
erected the fees of a private architect
at 5 per cent, of the cost would have
been $02,223. This showed a net sav
ing to the state of $42,798.01. The
statement Included a copy of the res
olution of the state loard of charities
authorizing the payment of the archi
tect's expenses from the appropriation
made In. the several state institutions,
and also a copy of an opinion fey At
torney General Hamlin justifying the
Wilson attacked the practice 'that
had prevailed heretofore of allowing
the state architect compensation in .ad
dition to his salary to cover expenses,
and Sherman said that he held the
present 'Incumbent of the state archi
tect's office in the highest personal re
gard, and that he had no reflections
toj make upon him personally, but he
wished to criticisetlie manner in which
moneys had been drawn from the pub
lic funds in connection with the dis
charge of the duties of the office of
" lie held that the state board had no
right toprescribe how the funds should
be expended and absolutely differed
from the state architect in this matter,
lie also denied that there had been
any saving iu the matter, but argued
that the state architect's office cost 3.2
per cent: of the cost of the buildings,
while the service could be obtained for
2.5 per cent.
The resolution was linally sent to the
judiciary committee, with instructions
to report not later than tomorrow.

any candidate. The bill also provides
that no person shall be eligible to
have his name placed on the ballot by
petition who h;is participated in any
caucus for the nomination of a can
didate for such office.
Parker attacked the bill ami said
there was no merit whatever in it. "No
bill could be more adroitly drawn for
consolidating and concentrating the
machine,' said the senator, ?tliau is
this bill.' I want to say to you who
believe in the operation of the ma
chine that in my opinion the people
of Illinois are somewhat tired of the
machine in its concentrated form."
Hamilton also spoke against the bill
and it was defended by Gardner and
Hurnett. After much skirmishing on
the part of tne friends of the bill and
numerous ro!! calls of the absentees
and those not ting the bill finally
got the nece.-ssary twenty-six votes to
pass it. while fourteen were recorded

Severe Attack of Grip Cured by One ltottle
of Chamberlain's Congh Remedy.
"When 1 had an attack of the grip
last winter (the second one) 1 actual
ly cured myself with one bottle of
Chamberlain's Cough Kenicdy," says
Frank W. Perry, editor of fhe Enter
prise, Shortsvilie, Is. Y. "This is the
honest truth. I at limes kept from
coughing myself to pieces by taking
a tcaspoouful of this remedy, and
when the coughing" spell would come
on at night I would take a dose and
it seemed that in the briefest inter
val the cough would pass off and 1
would go to sleep perfectly free from
cough and its accompanying pains.
To say that the remedy acted as a
most agreeable surprise is putting it
very mildbr. I had no idea that it
would or could knock out the grip,
simply because I had never tried it
for such a purpose, but it did, and it
seemed with the second attack of
coughing the remedy caused it to not
only be of less duration, but the pains
were far less severe, and I had not
used the contents, of one bottle before
Mr. Grip had bid me adieu." For sale

coughing and straining so weakened
me that I run down in weight from

of remedies to no avail until I used
One Minute Cough Cure. Four bottles
of this wonderful remedy cured me
entirely of the cough, strengthened
my lungs and restored me to my nor

44 It is with feelings of gratitude for
benefits derived from the use of Peruna
that 1 desire to proclaim to human-kind
my experience, hoping that It will bene
fit some unfortunate sufferer like myself.
"Suffering for years with- what ap
peared to be an incurable malady, and
after a great expense incurred consult
ing physicians without any benefit, I
was recommended to try Peruna. As a
last expedient 1 purchased a bottle, and
before one-half of the contents were used
J felt the beneficial results. I am con
tinuing to use same, and might say I
am entirely well. My disease seemed to
be catarrh of the stomach, and the
nauseating sensation, and the heavy,
languid, tired-out feelings with which I
suffered, especially after eating, have
entirely left me, and my digestive or
gans are in splendid condition, all of
which I owe to the use of Peruna."
