sor Edward Bartow, director of the
state water surrey, disclosed impor
tant information in a letter to Governor
Deneen which has been made public.
According to Professor Bartow there
exists a wide difference in the health
fulness of the water supply in munici
palities In the 51 southern counties as
compared with the water supply of cit
ies in the northern Illinois counties.
He states that a study of the situa
tion shows that cities in the northern
half of the Btate have much better wa
ter. This, he says, is due to geological
conditions which permit of artesian
wells. In the southern half of the state
cities are forced to get their water

tRGES I'SE OF FILTERS.-
Professor Bartow says because of
this situation in tbe southern counties,
the typhoid fever death rate is becom
ing radically higher than in the north
ern part of the state. He recommends
the installment of filter plants in every
city where it is necessary to obtain
drinking water from surface sources.
Governor Deneen will urge upon the
legislature the necessity of more rigid
regulation and investigation of water
supplies in all portions of the Btate.

.Mr. Wickersham made a strong
pica for an independent judiciary
and scored the recall as "the latest
Invention of self-characterized 'pro
gressive' government." He said In
"What are Judges but impartial
arbitrators to whom any one of us
may be compelled at any moment to
turn for j rotectibn of life, limb or
property? What will become of that
protection If our system of govern
ment should subject him to the de
spoiling rage of the mob. when he
asserts the supremacy of the law In
the face of unjust clamor? Who of
us will be secure In all that we hold
dear if our Judges can only retain
their places by consulting the pass
ing fever of the crowd Instead of
the laws of the land?
"A glib cheap answer is made by
the advocates of purely democratic
government when objection is made
to their schemes: 'You do not trust
the people,' they say. On the con
trary it Is they who do not trust the
people. Their whole program Is bas
ed on the assumption that, the peo
ple are unfit or unable to choose hon"
est and faithful representatives.
"I'nder such a system, the people
abandon all self-restraint and the ne
cessity of sober second thought, bas
ed on accurate information and thor
ough discussion before condemning
"Such theories have already found
expression in constitutional law, and
even In our eastern states there are
not larking those who have seized
upon these notions as a gospel which
Is to bring salvation to a people sit
ting in darkness."
