Ineorporatsd under tho Laws of Illinois. By Htnry P. Deaovan. SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1913. FOR A CONSTITUTIONAL CONVEN TION. The Citizens' Association of Chi cago is on the right track In advocat ing a revision of our State Constitu tion. The annual report of the associ ation, just Issued, says: "Last December our Executive Com mittee adopted resolutions favoring the calling of a convention to revise the Constitution of Illinois and tried to promote discussion of the matter. In June, when It had become apparent that the Legislature would not vote to submit to the people any of the constitutional amendments which had been proposed, we made an eleventh hour effort to induce the members of the House to pass the joint resolution for a constitutional convention which had already been adopted by the Sen ate under the leadership of Senator Curtis. In spite of the confusion con nected with the last night of the ses sion and the large number of ab sentees, this resolution received eighty vote"' In the House. "It is universally admitted that the present Constitution of Illinois, adopt ed forty-three years ago, has long been outgrown; and that the slow and difficult process required to amend it has for many years seriously retarded the progress of the peoplo of the State by depriving them of the power to properly meet now governmental needs arising from the changed condi tions. The accumulated evils arising from this situation have now becomo so numerous and acute that adequate relief can bo obtained only by revising the Constitution in such a way that it will ccaso to bo n hlndranco to good government. Such necessary reforms as the abolition of the system of mi nority representation in tho Legisla ture:' revision of tho texatlon system; consolidation of local governing and taxing bodies; and reduction in the number of elective ofllcors enn only bo secured without Intolerable delay by modernizing the Stato Constitution. Adequate powers of homo rulo for Chicago can also best bo secured by this State-wide method. "For forty years proposed amend ments havo killed each other oft. One third of tho membership of either houso has been able effectually to block any desired change In tho Con stitution. Tho Irksome restrictions imposed by the present Constitution bear down upon Chicago with almost crushing force. Because of them Chi cago Is compelled to maintain, at a vast unnecessary expenso, three sep arata and distinct governmental bodies covering practically tho same territory; viz: the City, County and Sanitary District. In our opinion the time Is ripe now for holding a Con stitutional Convention In Illinois as the best means of affording adequate relief to the people of the City and State. At the next session of the Leg islature we will do everything In our power to bring about the calling of such a Convention, which this Asso ciation has favored for many years." EAGLETS. John C.

Tho action of tho company In tear ing out telephones bocauso subscribers also had tho automatic service will bo ono of tho first things called to tho attention of tho now complaint bureau when it Ib organized within a few days. That tho company has tho right to give or refuse sorvlco to druggists or those having public telephones was LYON. Friend of Personal Liberty. the contention yesterday of A. R. Bone, commercial superintendent of the com pany. This was denied by Aid. Sltts, chairman of the gas, oil and electric light committee, which drew up the ordinance under which the company Is operating. "Tho druggists and others are merely agents for the company," is the ex planation Mr. Bone gave. "They are working for us and we can discharge them if we wish. They cannot repre sent us if they also represent a com peting company. These men are paid to have the telephones in their places and we have tho right to control them." "That is rubbish," commented Aid, Sltts. "The telephone company must give service to any person or Arm In Chicago demanding It If It is physical ly possible. There Is nothing In the ordinance giving this so-called right. The complaint bureau will be ready to start work in a few days and these cases probably will be among tthe first taken up." The city of Chicago, In granting the franchise of the Illinois Tunnel Co., provided for the future by stipulating that If the company consolidated with the old phone company Its rights and franchise would be forfeited to the city. Now some of the aldermen want to abrogate this provision; give away the city's rights and make the trust supreme. And these are the fellows who kick against state utility regu lation!

WANTS GOOD ROADS FOR FARMERS So much headway has been made by the good roads movement that the main question now seems to be mere ly whether the federal government shall help provide "business roads" or "touring roads." It Is evident from a speech delivered by Congressman Dor sey W Shackleford of Missouri, chair man of the nouse committee on pubtlo roads, at the third annual American Road congress at Detroit, that con gress and the Wilson administration Are disposed to consider first the In terests of the farmers, who need good wagon roads to bring them closer to the market The "Interstate-boulevard" Idea la largely supported by the automobile people, whoso campaigning for good roads has given the general move ment much of Its Impetus. The so called "touring class" which, of course. Includes automobile manufac turers and agents as well as owners argue that the farmers would re ceive aa many benefits from big Interstate highways as anybody else, because those living along the main highways would use them, the value of their lands would be enhanced, and communities would bo encouraged to build better local thoroughfares. There are several elaborate Interstate schemes on foot. One of them Is the Lincoln Memorial highway, an ocean-to-ocean road. Another is a great system of national roads extending to all parts of the country. t This plan Is advocated by the National Highways association, the mov ing spirit of which Is Charles Henry Davis, an eminent civil engineer of Soutli Yarmouth, Mass., and Washington, D. C. Mr. Shockleford's address aroused the hostility of many members of the American Automobile association. THRONE GOAL OF BBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBsV aaBBmBBBBBBBBBBBBBBsl BaiBBBBBBT!?!"!

There Is said to be a friendly rivalry between the girls as to tho first who will get a husband. Grand Duchess Olga was accredited with the handi cap until the unexpected possibility of the Russian-English alliance, which would bo most advantageous from a political standpoint. The entente be tween the countries is none too popular now with the common people, and an alliance that would bring a Russian queen to England would go far toward remedying matters. HIS SERMON AROUSES INTEREST At tho church congress tho other day tho bishop of London preached a sermon which has aroused very ex traordinary Interest. In the courso of this, he said: "I would ask you to turn your eyes from this world to another; to look up from the heat and struggle of tho stadium to those tiers after tiers of spectators who look down upon the conflict which they onco knew so well. There they aro in their million and tens of mil lion. During ray visit to Russia, when I had a long conversation through an interpreter with tho authorities of the Russian church, nothing seemed to strike them more forcibly than the little connection which wo seemed in our church to havo with that multi tude. They ended by saying: 'Sure ly, bishop, yours is a very unloving doctrine: wo love our dear ones In the other world; they aro close to us; our boys speak to their mothers In paradise as it they were In the same room. Wo aro not Roman Catholics any more than you, and repudlato the claim of trie pope to jurisdiction over us as you do, but we should miss sorely our belief In the prayers and Intercessions for which we aro allowed to ask from tho great cloud of witnesses.' " Later, tho bishop, acknowledging diffi culties which he said must be faced and overcomo If we are to assent to the revival of any form of direct Invocation of saints in our public services, said: "It would 'strengthen the wavering line' more than we know It we thought more of those noble souls who still think of us, still pray for us, and still love us. I would plead, then, for a revival In the church of a belief In the great doctrine of the communion of saints." The sermon Is regarded by some as "revolutionary." A. EDISON Thomas A. Edison Is sixty-six. If he were to dlo now It would bo diffi cult to estimate the loss to humanity. Ho has given It the lightning's flash for its tool. Ho has taken tho very soul of harmony and Imprisoned It for Its toy. Every day, every night ho works In his laboratory out In those quiet, encircling hills, literally tho wizard of the new world.
