COMING Supporters of tho movo for n con stitutional convention aro confident that tho flftloth gonoral nssombly will adopt a rosolutlon to submit tho ques tion to a voto of tho pcoplo. Ton votes woro lacking whon tho at tompt was mado to put It through tho houso on March 31, 1915, after tho son nto had given the rosolutlon tho re quired two-thirds majority. Fifty out of tho ninety-two mombors who voted for tho resolution In tho forty-ninth session will roturn to tho flftloth. Tho supporters of tho "con con" dccloro they know that thoy may count upon not loss than thirty-eight of tho forty-two who tako tho places of tho others being with thorn. Twenty of tho thirty-two mombors who voted against tho rosolutlon bo foro wero ro-olected to tho houso, which, opponents of tho plan say, Is a bettor showing than tho other sldo mado. Slxteon of tho sovontoen whoso names do not appoar on tho roll call wero ro-olected, nnd It Is reasonablo to supposo that most of thorn will dodgo tho Issuo again and bo absent whon tho voto is taken in tho noxt houso.

THOMAS Who Retires from the Board of WASCMCAG0SLIGHTED7 Many Think the Population Underestimated. Has Chicago been slighted by tho United Stntes census enumerators? A great many business men and pub lic officers bollovo that tho govern ment coiiBim bureau Is grossly undor cstlmntjng tho population of Chicago by putting It at 2,497,722, when othor consus inkers In tho city plnco tho population ns high as 2,800,000. Thoy pointed out that tlirco cen suses taken within tho last year all glvo a higher population than tho govornmont. Thoy wero of tho opin ion that tho great Industrial prosper ity enjoyed in Chicago slnco 1914 has brought thousands of now residents horo and established a much higher rato of yearly lncrcaso than tho offi cial government census-takers allow for. Coincident with tho announcement of tho Government consul records tho census taken by tho Chicago postof- flco was mado public by Postmastor Daniel Campbell. It places .the popu lation nt approximately 2i$00',000, -This calculation Is mado with Information In reports of letter carriers as to tho numbor of parsons .who received mall during tho year. Postmaster Camp-' boll bollevcs its accuracy is nearer correct than censuses based' on othor methods of estimation. Another census taken by tho Chi cago Directory Company places tho population nt 2.G10.000. This flguro Is reached by comparing tho ratio of tho last official population, which wob 2,185,282, to tho, numbor of names In tho 191G directory. A third consus in tho report of Wil liam L. Bodino, Buporlntondont of compulsory education, gives tho popu lation of Chicago ns 2,550,000. Tho roport says in part: "Based upon tho minor population consorvatlvo multlplo which proved tho only ono successfully close to tho actual federal enumeration of total population In 1910, I ostlmato tho total population of all ngos In Chica go In 1916 to bo 2,550,000. Tho school consus in 1914, whon tho enumeration covered all ages, showed tho total pop ulation to bo 2,437,520, which would bo an increase in total population In two years of 112,474," Engineers Of tho Chicago Tolephono Company estimate the population at 2.GOO.00O.

PROTECT THE CHILDREN Moro children havo been killed In eighteen months In tho districts whero factories, homes and shops aro all Jumbled up than In all other parts of Chicago together.

"This Is especially truo In tho lmmedlato vM cinlty of a public school. Tho coming of business establishments and fac tories into such neighborhoods In variably brings moro and hoavlor ve hicles and Incroasos tho dangor to tho children from accidents. "Tho numbor of children killed whllo playing on Chicago strode Is appalling. If wo aro to mako our streets sato for our chlldron and ro duco tho numbor of llttlo ones who meet death on tho public thorough fares of Chicago, wo must segregate our factories and our shops and our stores and koop them away from our homos. Business and industrial neigh borhoods must bo kopt soparato from residential districts. "In addition to a much desired re duction in deaths and injuries to chil dren and grown people tho creation of business, factory and homo zones would bring about othor Important benefits. It will protect against de preciation of property valuos both the home owner and tho invostor. It would materlaly lesson flro hazards and bring smallor lnsuranco rates. It would add to tho onjoymont of our homo.llfe by ridding tho places whero wo llvo of tho nuisances of clouds of smoko belching from factories next door, accompanied by tho rattling and clanking of machinery and tho befoul ing of tho air by foul gases.
