CHICAGO VS ILLINOIS.
(Written lor The Areus.)
The visit to our county of lion. E. D.
Shurtleff, speaker of the Illinois house
of representatives and aspirant to the
governor's office, brings to our notics
the proposition he is advocating to
iimit Chicago's political power. The
project Is not quite new, but has re
ceived little attention, unless in some
of the Chicago papers; and their utter
ances indicate fear, anger, resentment.
Not being able to hear Mr. Shurt
leff's speacli at the farmers' picnic, I
do not know just how he proposes to
accomplish his proposition, lint, evi
dently, any plan that gives a minority
of the people entire control of the leg
islature is objectionable, and will bo,
no doubt, held repugnant to that clause
of the federal constitution guaranteeing
to every state a republican form of gov
ernment. It should be iossible to de
vise a scheme that will work equally
and impartially between Chicago and
the balance of the state, and, therefore,
be approved by all fair minded eiti
ezns. Such a plan may be found by
closely copying the organization of the
United States congress wherein one
branch represents localities, the other
Let each county be constituted a
senatorial district, electing one sena
tor, provided that any county having
a population less than a certain estab
lished minimum, say 25,000. 30,000 or
40,000, shall be combined with an ad
joining county to form a senatorial dis
trict, and provided also that a county
having a population of 500,000 and up,
shall elect one senator for each 250,
000 people. These figures are for lllus
tration only. I have not at hand the
data for working out the problem. The
theory is that the unit of senatorial
representation in Cook county shall be
two or three times larger than in the
balance of the state. This will give
the country districts a clear majority
in the senate for many years to come.
Members of the house or representa
tives shall be apportioned among all
the counties in the state In proportion
to their population. This will give
Cook county after the next federal
census, according to Mv. Shurtleff, a

majority of the members of the house,
and this majority is expected to in
crease. The practical result will be
that it will be imiHissilde to enact any
legislation injurious, to, or for the ex
clusive benefit of either section, the
city or the state a situation that suffi
ciently recommends itself.
If it is desired to continue the pres
ent system of minority representation,
it will be necessary to divide the state
into legislative districts, to be formed,
as now, of contiguous territory, and
substantially equal in population. Per
haps, however, we are about ready to
abandon this method.
There is also another subject of
equal or perhaps greater importance
taxation. Some 2o years ago or more
it was pointed out that the union of
state and local taxation in one system
was the cause of many of the inequali
ties and abuses that encumber our rev
enue system, and the remedy is the
divorce of this unnatural union. All
these years we have been traveling in
the opposile direction.
The state should collect its revenue
from special taxes on corporations, cap
ital stock, franchises, gross receipts.
either on all of these, inheritance taxes,
license fees, and the like. This will
do away with the state tax on property,
and the slate board of equalization, and
all its desperate attempts to accomplish
the impossible, to equalize the valua
tion of property, and thus the amount
of tax. Each county may then assess
its property and levy taxes for local
purposes to suit itself, and its action
will affect no other county. If within
such narrow limits inequalities and in
justice continue, it will be largely be
cause the people do not care, and they
alone will suffer.
These changes will require amend
ment or revision of the state constitu
tion. The process of amendment is
slow and uncertain. A constitutional
convention for revision would seem to
be the proper thing. Hut whatever is
to be done, the public must first be edu
cated. The people must come to see
