FOR A COMPROMISE
Legislature Postpones Action
Municipal Ownership to Do
CHAETEE BILL PASSES
ouniy x'eople Iieiusine to
Make Any Concessions Refers "
endum Resolution Falls.
Springfield, Ills.. Arril 23. After
nn all night conference an agreement
was reached at 4 a. ui. yesterday upon
amendments to the I.lndly municipal
ownership bill, which are Intended to
make it a compromise measure In
lieu of the Mueller bill. The confer
ence was held in a room in the Lelaud
hotel and there were present Repre-
tMMitatives Liudly, Shnnahan, 'Morris,
Chiperfield and Nohe; Alderman Ben
nett, Mavor and Eidemann, of the lo
cal transportation committee; Graeme
Stewart, Representative William Lori-
mer, Colonel Frank O. Lowden. Geo.
W. Hinman and Kdwy Logan Reeves,
Frdwin Rurritf Smith, special council
of the city, was present during the
tarly part of the conference, but would
not consider any compromise proposi
tion, iusisting upon the Mueller bill
Amendment Agreed Upon.
The most important amendments
are: Giving to a city the power to
reserve the right to assume ownership
of a street railway line without sub
mitting the matter to referendum;
striking out the clause limiting the op
eration under foreclosure proceedings
to three years, and substituting an
other giving three years further time;
adding a new section requiring the city
council to provide by ordinance for the
submission of the question of mu
nicipal ownership. Early yesterday
morning the Chicago municipal own
ership delegation held a meeting and
after a brief discussion it was decided
without a dissenting vote to stand for
the substitution of the Mueller bill
as amended. This was done on tho
understanding that if the house passes
an unsatisfactory bill an effort will
be riade to amend it in the senate to
conform as pearly as possible to tiie
, Mueller bill.
Teas and Nays Demands Ignored.
The Lindly bill was a special order
In the house yesterday immediately
after the reading of the journal. Lind
ly moved to postpone the bill until 2
p. m. Immediately there were wild
demands for the yeas and nays from a
Marge "number of the members. Daring
'.the confusion Speaker Miller put the
motion to poottione to a viva voce vote
and declared it carried.
IUEN THE TROUBLE HEOAH
First Appropriation BUI Called Up Is Ie
feated by Wealthy Members.
This action precipitated trouble. The
bill appropriating $48,000 per annum
for the ordinary expenses of the East
ern Illinois Normal was then called up.
and Trautmatm raised the point of or
der that the traction question was a
special order, and that an appropria
tion was not in order. The vote was
ordered, however on the appropriation
bill, and the large number of members
who had demanded a roll call on the
proposition to postpone the traction
question, either remained silent or
voted against the appropriation bill.
The bill failed to pass yeas, 07;navys,
Wilkerson now called up the Great
er Chicago resolution, and the speaker
held that Schlagenhauf's amendment,
limiting Cook county's representation
in the legislature to seventeen sena
torial districts, was pending. The
amendment was the subject of a long
debate, Cook county opiosing It and
also refusing to meet the country mem
bers on the question of raising the
basis of the tax valuation, and Patter
son offered an amendment to the
Schlagenhauf amendment providing
that never under any circumstances
shall Cook county contribute . more
than one-third of the revenue to the
state treasurer; rejected. Finally, on
a rising vote, the .Schlageuhauf amend
ment was lost yeas. 57; nays, Co.
Wilkerson then qffered as a substi
tute for the eutire resolution the Hum
phrey resolution as adopted by the sen
ate with some amendments. Again
Schlageuhauf offered his amendment
and it was again, lost, and the sub
stitute offered by Wilkerson was adopt
ed on a viva voce' vote and the roll
called on the adoption of the resolu
tion and thus amended, with this, re
sult: Yeas. 113; nays, 4. , ,
Schlagenhauf got the floor previous
to the vote and said he was "not
surprised that the gentleman from Ful
ton I CliiperfieldJ and the gintleman
from Macon Gray should take the
position they do. The Chicago papers
have been telling what wonderful
statesmen they are. t Laughter. The
most of these demagogues and ranters
aspire to state offices. Laughter.
The most of them would hear from
this dangerous growing population at
the ballot bores and that is what those
gentlemen are afraid of."
While the roll call was In progress
Wilkerson arose and said: "I am au
thorized to state that the Cook county
members will help out tne country
members on their revenue bill." This
statement was immediately repudiated
so . far as Church, . Morris, Stewart.

ANTI-TRUST MEASURE POSTPONE D
opposition Develops to s Clause That
Slight Hit the Unions.
After the vote on the Chicago char
ter j matter recess was taken to 2 p,
m., but the house did not reconvene
until 2:20. As soon as the members
came to order Lindly was recognized
by Speaker Miller. "Mr. Speaker,'
said Lindly, "owing to the fact that
there are some gentlemen who offi
cially represent the city of Chicago
who believe that we can get closer to
gether on the traction question, I move
that this question be postioned until
tomorrow morning." The motion was
put to a viva voce vote and declared
lhe Yvilkcrson anti-trust bill was
taken up on third reading. Drew op
posed the bill. He declared that it
was a blow at labor organizations, for
the reason that it made it an offense
for an employer to make an agree
ment with his employes.
Wilkerson replied that the language
objected to had been on the statute
books since 1SP3; that substantially the
only change made by the bill In the
law of 1S!K was to omit the exception
relating to farm products, which had
caused the supreme court to declare
the law unconstitutional. The bill, he
id, had received the approval of the
attorney general of Illinois. After fur
ther discussion the matter was post
poned until tomorrow.
Burton called, up the referendum
resolution providing for the submission
of a constitutional amendment per
mitting legislation by the initiative
and referendum. All of the committee
amendments were adopted, including
the one objected to, which was that
requiring the approval of a majority
of all the votes cast at the election
insteadof a majority cast on the propo
sition for the enactment of legislation
Initiated by the people. The resolu
tion failed of adoption localise only
ninety-one members voted aye. The
bill to authorize cities to regulatestreet
and bill-board advertising had its en
acting clause eliminated. iThe bill de
fining liability of employers for death
or injury to employes was sent to third
At 4 p. m. the house with the sen
ate attended Altgeld memorial exer
cises and thon adjourned.
SENATE AND CIVIL SERVICE
Honse nil! Killed and a New Measure
Adopted with Limited Application.
Springfield, Ills., April 23. The sen
ate spent practically all of the, morn
lng session yesterday in considering
the question of civil service. The pend-
ng question was the house bill on t'lie
ubjeet on the order of second read-
ng. but when the smoke of battle had
leared away it was found that the
house measure was dead beyond hope
of resurrection, while an entirely new
bill had been substituted in fhe shape
of an amendment. All that is now left
of the house bill Is its number and en
Immediately after the reading of the
ournal Chairman Kiley, of the civil
service committee, called up the house
bill and moved that the three amend
ments reported by the committee Ik;
adopted. Burnett wanted a division of
the amendnients.and it was so ordered.
The tirst amendment, striking out the
provision that all persons now in of
fice and holding positions for which
examinations for applicants are pro
vided for shall within six months take
n examination to determine their ef
ficiency was adopted by a vote of 29
to 9. The second amendment, practi
cally restoring the penalty clause which
was left in the bill as originally intro
duced in the house was also adopted.
The fight of the morning, so far as
the pending bill was concerned, was on
the adoption of the committee amend
ment striking out the referendum sec
tion of the house bill. After numerous
speeches on the subject the amendment
was lost on a roll call of 20 yeas and
28 nays. IHxon was against the ref
erendum section. He said there was a
ringing demand for civl service and
that the people have already answered
Jn the matter.
"Where," said Berry, "did the people
pass on this bill, and when did they
by their votes make that ringing noise
that you speakfofV"
Dixon replied that both parties in
their city and state conventions had
declared for civil service.
"Then," retorted I5e:ry, "you mean
the ringing of the state conventions
and not tho people. Hancock county
lias never yelled very much for civil
When the roll was called on the adop
tion of the committee amendment to
Strike out the referendum section it
was lost by a vote of 20 to 2S, the
ayes being in detail: Alden, Butler,
Campbell, Coleman. Dawson, Dixon,
Farrclly. Haas. Hall, .Tandus, .Tuul,
Lundberg, Maher, Mueller, Parker,
Rainey, Itees, Riley, Stringer, Temple
Then McKenzie offered an amend
ment striking out all after the enacting
clause and inserting an entirely new
bill, applying to the charitable institu
tions of tbf state only. Riley moved
to lay It on the table. On this question
the vote was a tie, and for the first
t4me during the session Lieutenant
Governor Northeotttiad an opportunity
to vote. He voted against tabling the
amendment for the reason, as he said,
that the senate might further discuss
It. McKenzie's amendment was finally
adopted. Berry then got In a referen
dum amendment identical with that
adopted In the house. The bill was
then made special order on third lead
lug for this morning.
Evans introduced a bili, 499, provid
ing for the tax levy for the next two
years. It calls for $9,000,000 for the
school fund. - ...
