on a million dollar special assessment,

"All local Improvements should orig

the law which would let the majority
property owners compel the board of
local Improvements to hold public
"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

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
"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
