Washington, Jan. 13. Secretary of
War Stimson's formal decision, refus
ing additional diversion of water from
Lake Michigan to the Chicago drain
age canal, was made public yesterday,
The decision Is based in great prt
upon the chief engineer's report that
to grant the' Chicago petition would
be detrimental to lake navigation.
As this is a matter which would af
fect Canada as well as the United
States, Mr. Stimson refuses to take
the responsibility of granting the peti
tion and says the relief which Chicago
asks, if granted at all, must be granted
by an act of congress.

parts in the effort to aid the city.
That there will be great opposition
is recognized. The steel trust and
other lake shipping interests are op
pcfed bitterly to increasing the flow
of the sanitary canal, as are commun

Secretary Stimson's decision." said
Congressman Madden. "I think he
went further than necessary in deny

however, that we shall have no trou

tion from congress."

MAY LOSE BY
Non-Partisan Alliance of
Downstaters is Now
IN SPEAKERSHIP FIGHT
Tactics of Chicago Crowd Are
Condemned by Democrats
in Other Sections.
Springfield. 111., Jan. 13. That most
serious possibilities of the legislative
deadlock confront not only Governor
elect Dunne, but Roger C. Sullivan of
Chicago, as well, developed today.
when it became known efforts will be
made to organize the legislature on a
non-partisan basis with downstate
members arrayed agajnst the Chicago
members. It. was reported several
quiet conferences were held Saturday
and Sunday outside of Chicago by
rr cmbers representing the country dis
tricts. OPPOSED TO TACTICS.
Opposition to tactics employed by
Chicago democratic members led by
Sullivan developed to the point of bel
ligerency in at least one of theBe
downstate conferences. If such a plan
is crystallized and executed,, it means
the certain breaking of the speaker
ship deadlock this week.
OVERTHROW OF COOK.
Recapitulation of the housemember
ship indicates a non-partisan align
ment of downstate members would al
most certainly result in the overthrow
of the Cook county delegation and the
defeat of both the Sullivan and Dunne
contingent so far as the work of or
ganization and naming of legislative
committees is concerned.
STATEMENT BY KARCH.
Charles Karch of Belleville, demo
crat, was the first of the speakership
candidates to return to Springfield af
ter the week-end recess. In state
ment! he said:
"The first qualification of the new
speaker is that he be a democrat, be
cause the democratic party Is domi
nant in the state and nation. The peo
ple of Illinois have chosen a demo
cratic governos and they look to him
to carry out his platform pledges, and
it Is their implied, if not expressed
will, that he should have a legisla
ture through which these pledges and
promises may be translated Into law."
"A choice, under majority rule, is
manifestly impossible so long as 'We
harp and carp on non-essentials and
matters subordinate to the main issue.
Matters not discussed in the campaign
ing nor contained in the party plat
form are Irrelevant and should there
fore be excluded."
