DEfJEEN GIVES UP
Springfield. 111., Nov. 12 Gover
nor Deneen yesterday abandoned his
plan to convene the old legislature in
special session to fill the Lorimer sen
atorial vacancy and reapportion the
congressional and senatorial districts
of the state before the democratic ad
ministration comes into power.
The governor reached a final deter
mination not to call a special session
after a conference in the executive !
mansion at Springfield, at which he
discussed the question with Lieuten
ant Governor Ogle6by, Secretary of
State Doyle. State Auditor McCul
lough. Assistant Attorney Generals
Dempsey and Woodward and Law
rence Y. Sherman, republican sena
torial nominee to succeed Shelby M.
Earlier In the day Governor De
r.een had laid the question before the
rttorney general's department for an
official opinion on the question as to
t hen the terms of members of the
general assembly begins.
Attorney General Stead was out of
the city, but Assistants Dempsey and
Woodward were agreed that the
authorities maiie :t plain that a legis
lator's term begins Immediately after
his election. This was the point
reieed by the newly elected progres
sive members, who planned in the
c ent of a tpecial session of the out
going legislature to demand their
This legal question if taken into the
courts might have resulted in the in
validation of apportionment bills and
might have caused the unseating of
a senator elected at the proposed spe
Governor Deneen gave out the fol
J "During the campaign and since
i election day a number of members of
1 the legislature and others prominent
; in the party urged me to call a spe
' cial session of the general assembly
i foi the purpose of enacting an appor-
tionment law and filling the vacancy
l i:i the United States senatorship from
"I submitted the matter to the of
. fice of the attorney general and have
been advised today that the newly
elected members of the general as
sembly would be entitled to sit Iff the
special session; not the old members.
"In my opinion, therefore, the mat
ter should be taken up by the newly
elected members of the general as
sembly at the regular session rather
than at a special session. According
ly, I fchall not convene an extra se
B'on or the general assembly."
Governor Deneen has it within his
power to appoint a senator to fill the
Lorimer vacancy. It is not consid
ered likely that he will do so. Such
an appointee would be able to take his
seat at the December session of con-
press, but would lose his place as soon
as the legislature at the regular ses
sion In January selected his successor.
The abandonment of the special ses
sion plan means that some sort of a
trade for the two senatorships wiu be
made between two of the parties.
Lawrence Y. Sherman is tho avowed
republican nominee for the long
term. James Hamilton Lewis is the
democratic nominee. The progres
sives, who hold the balance of power
In the new legislature, hope to make
' terms which will bring them one of
'the senatorships. There-may be, how
iever some sort of a combination be-
I tween the republican and democrats
jvhich will shut out the progressives.
