Chicago wants no blue laws. Chicago voters aro opposed to sump tuary legislation. A demand for hotter cars In tho South Chicago section was made to tho board of supervising engineers by Al dermnii John II. Jones of tho Eighth ward. Alderman Jones holds that tho cars now lu uso are a menace not only to pedestrians but to passengers, who, ho says, are practically prisoners after they have 'boarded tho cars. "On qll cars running through South Chicago tho saino door Is used for ingress and cgres," said Alderman Jones, "and If nn emergency should arise, which has nt several times, tho passengers would bo uunblo to get out-of danger because of tho single door. When It Is taken Into consideration that n car passing through South Chicago has to pass over probably a doten grado crossings, tho danger Is Intensified, That Is why we lu a talk before the ways and means committee o( the Cliiciuo Association of Commerce Wednesday, 8uierlntcnd cut of Schools Cooley outlined a plan to provide for technical and business training classes for workers lu day schools, it would Involve tho co-operation of Chicago's business Interests to tho extent of allowing employes certain free hours on certain days for tho pur IHiso of perfecting themselves In any Hue calculated to beuellt them in their employment.

He has shown Ills worth to the people during tho' years lie has served on the bench, and to retire such an honest and Just Judge would be a pub lic loss.

"That step." lie said, "solldllled ono poll i leal pinty against It ami split an other. It would have leeii wiser ti have left out the ward Hues." The failure of the charter to Incltido a home rule provision applicable to Sunday saloons Is another cause of tho measure's defeat and will receive at tention from the committee. It was decided to compare the draft sent to the legislature with the ono passed by that body and pick out tlm provision which proved uiiMptihir with the K'ople. Then tliu committee win eliminate or modify these pro visions and rejort a revised draft to the convention. The primary law and the wheel tax having Is'en achieved without the charter those features will not lie a part of the next draft.

The committee adjourned to meet at the call of the chair as mioii as copies of (lie convention and assembly drafts, of the charter act can be secured. George W. Paulllu has proven by his record on tho Druluago Hoard to be a faithful, conscientious aud ludus trT6us bervnnt of the pcoplo and his ro-electlon Is Justly deserved. No better man can be elected to tho Municipal Court this fall than Cyril It. Jaudus, whoso clean and able record as a lawyer and as a Stato Senator has mado him popular with all glasses of Cblcagoans. Tho next charter to ho submitted to tho people of Chicago will contain fewer provisions subject to Hpular piejudlce than did tho late lamented measure, If tho steeling committee of tho charter convention succeeds in fol lowing tho lino of policy mapped out.
