"Aa for the county court., they, too, ihould uie more power. The court can pais on a million dollar special assessment, but it cannot pasa on a $1,000 contract. "All local Improvements should orig inate with the board of local Improve ments. There should be a change In the law which would let the majority property owners compel the board of local Improvements to hold public bearings. "Then, If the majority approves of Improvements, the board should get suitable ordinances. As It Is now a special assessment proceeding Is a lawsuit between the city and objecting property holders. The non-objecting owners do not appear. All powers and the control of streets and pavements should be vested la the board of lo cal Improvements." Major Edgar B. Tolman, vice presi dent of the association, presided. Among the guests were Judge Orln X. Carter of the Illinois Supreme Court and United States Judge C. C. Kohl- Mat. Two methods of expediting Justice In Cook County are aimed at in the report of the Chicago Bar Associa tion's committee on amendment of the The first is an Increase In the quota of Judges for Cook county, enabling them to consider all cases brought before them without calling country Judges to their assistance. The sec ond recommendation Is that the Legis lature be asked to relieve Judges of the Appellate Court from writing opin ions on cases from lower courts which they affirm. The full text of the re port will not be made public until June 8, when the managers of the Bar Association have passed upon it. "It is Impossible to say now," said Mr. Defrees, president of the Bar As 30datlon, "whether or not the report will be accepted. It Is the opinion or the bar In general that decided action Is necessary, anil there may bo a ques tion aa to whether the recommenda tions are sufficiently strong." M predicted, the ChlcaRO Railways Company is In the hands of receivers, How far this move la Intended to go In the defeat of present financial arrange ments with the city and ultimate mu nicipal ownership remains to be seen. The people of Chicago demand one street car fare for one city. The Chi cago Railways Company, now in liti gation, will get the Consolidated lines and one fare for nil must follow. The people want the city to got 35 per'cent of tho profits, too, The city Is in a bad boat on this traction matter unless It acts promptly. "I believe the city is in serious dan ger of losing its share of the traction profits, and I am making on Investiga tion In aearch of a remedy," aald Al derman Cullerton. "I am not certain that the city Is authorized to seise and operate tho llnea, but I am certain the situation la so serious as to demand Immediate action. We cannot afford to tako chance, with the city'. Inter ests, and the way the company ha. rushed Into insolvency make. It look aa though almost anything may be ex pected of It. "Another thing the city needs in this crisis Is a lawyer. I mean a lawyer who can be depended on to conserve the city's Interests. We have had enough of agreed ctses and the like, and It Is time for the city to come in and stop this dilly-dally policy." Alderman Cullerton was not pre pared to say what action he would recommend, but he admitted that he had something to offer the council at Its next meeting. ' John Barton Payne, attorney for tho Consolidated bondholders, took the same view of the case as Alderman Cullerton, saying there was no doubt that the Ball Judgment constituted a prior lien on the property of the Chi cago Railways Company and that It would have to be paid ahead of the city. He said he had little fear that Judgo Ball's ruling would be reversed by the Supreme Court. Retire MUkem Foreman and Mr. Fisher from the traction firing line and seize the street railways, Is what many people think the city ought to do In the present emergency.

Unlike former direct primary laws, the new act, which becomes effective July 1, provides an opportunity for voters who are unregistered or have moved since the last registration day to qualify before the primaries, uno of the grounds on which the last law was declared unconstitutional was that It disfranchised a certain class of voters. district can nominate no abler, more popular or better qualified man for the Legislature than George M.
