PENCIL No.174 Suite 640, Otis Building Street, Chicago -v.. 1 Keeping Up to Standard WEATHER conditions arc of grave concern to the telephone business. The coming of a storm calls for the utmost vigilance on the part of those in charge of the telephone lines, in order that service may be maintained. The cost of repairing the tele phone lines after a storm often reaches large figures. One sleet storm di'd damage in the Chicago suburban division which cost $399,914 to repair. These expenses, in addition to operating costs and to those caused by the ordinary wear and tear, make adequate rates imperative.

Del oku tu MIrIh'II of Aurora oppnly charged that one now section relntltiK to corporations had a "Joker In It." That section said that the rates and charges of public utility corporations V "shall not ho discriminatory nor con llscatory, hut must and shall he at all times ienoiiahle and Just, both to the general public and to such cor K porntlons." Kneinles of watered stock and ex cessive utility rates In tho constitu tional convention uru Rotting ready for another battle. They were ublo to do little more .vhau dent tho utility Interests' front when the corporations committee re port was considered and adopted In the committee of the whole, but the claim they did make some headway. They eliminated the Joker, It Is as Rprted, Intended to tlo the hands of tho state In rate controversies, and forced the recognition of two sections of the present constitution on railroad regulation. When tho report comes before tho convention on second reading. Dole gate Philip K. l.ltlug of Macomb In tends to renew the light he made In the committee of the whole for tho adoption of the minority recommenda tions ho brought In. Ho does not believe that street car. gas, light, telephone companies and other utilities should bo permitted to water and Inflate their capital stock and then demand of tho public rates rtiiit will pay illvldeas on the watered Block; and he will lii.-iUt that a prohi bition of this shall In- uiltteu Into the draft for a new constitution. It Is contended Ifi will have the sup port of several delegates who share his views, but who stayed out of the tight In the committee of the whole. Resides adopting the proposed artl j cle on Incorporations the past week, the convention approved 20 sections of tho report of tho committee on livis latlou, When It adjourned for the week It had under dlseulon a section that provides: "No olllcer of this state shall be Interested, either directly or Indi rectly, In any contract entered Into by tho stnto, and no olllcer of any mu nicipal corporation, county, town or other olllcer, board or commission shall bo Interested, directly or Indi rectly In nny contract entered Into by such bodies." This, It was objected, would prevent a man who happened to hold a few I shares of stock In a gas, light, tele- phono or street ear company from lift ing as alderman or In any other ulll elal capacity In a city that had glum n franchise to the company. Efforts to change tho present arti cle on the Illinois Central railroad failed. This until K required to pay 7 per cent of Its early Income to tho state Instead of taxes. This money goes to tho payment of tho "ordinary expenses" of the stale. Delegates from counties lliiougli which the toad runs argued that the counties should get n part of the money. Some of the dolegntes said the) will attempt re vision of tho Mctlon on the second reading. Dnwnstnto delegates have a plan by which they claim Cook county would henellt llnnnclally by a distribu tion of the railroad Income, and they have convinced a number of Clilnigo delegntos that this Is true.

Prank I.. Smith, who was re elected republican stnto chairman at Sprlugllold, is not a party to any "deal" to re-elect Mayor Thompson topiihllcnn national committeeman. This was definitely stated by one of his closest personal and political friends last night anil was coupled with the assertion by tho same down state republican leader that Col. Smith will not bo a candidate for tho republican nomination for United States senator. "The national committeeship con test Is Just whero It stood when tho state convention adjourned," this man said. "There will bo a fierce fight In tho Illinois delegation, with out doubt, and tho result cannot bo anything but close." Whether Col. Smith Is to ho n can didate for tho republican nomination for governor remains to bo deter mined. Cov. I.owdon returned to Chicago f i om Springfield. Tho word from his personal headquarters Is that ho pro poses to go tho route In the effort to stop tho re-election of tho mayor to the national committee. Prominent lawyors thioughoat Illi nois havo registered their disapproval of tho act of Juno 28, 1910, providing for tho nomination of Judges nt coun ty conventions. Tho occasion was a discussion of tho subject of repre sentatives of most of the circuits of, this ftato at tho annual convention of the Illinois State liar association, which Is meeting at the Hotel Slier man. Opponents of tho act feel that lit too ninny Instances politicians would carry around the nomination and elec tion of Judges In their pockets. Those of tho voters familiar with the act It has not yet been tried out, hut will bo soon aro dissatisfied with tho stat ute, thoy sahl. W. II. Hart of Ronton,. speaking for tho second circuit, which Is composed of twelve counties, said ho felt tho peoplo of his circuit woie opposed to the method. So far as the Judges aro concerned, ho said. It appears thnso who aro "in light" favor tho act, which they believe will bo tho means of perpetuating them In otllco, whllo thoso on tho outside, "hoping to got In," denounce tho statute ns an outrage. The voters feel that "some llttlo country politician will carry tho election around In his pock et," Mr. Ilart declared. Potor P. Schnefer of Champaign and tho Cth circuit polled the 200 lawjers CHARLES D. WILLEY, Chairman of the Athletic Committee of the Elks' Committee of Arrange ments. JOHNSON, ?iJ the Elks Committee of Arrangements In his district on tho question. Forty, (ho per cent fuuired tho direct pri mary. Plfty-flvo per cent woro divided among tho old convention system of nomination, the present and a bar primary, he said. The views thoy of fered In repllng to the circular let ter ho dispatched to them woro many and varied. Advocates of the direct primary said tho pilmary promotes fitness, keeps the judiciary close to the people, keeps the Judges thinking of tho peoplo and allows of loss like lihood that the Judiciary will feel themselves remote from tho peoplo and thus become closer to special In terests. The primary, he said, provents tho boss rule which tho nomination of Judges by county conventions would nppear to permit. Mnny of Mr. Sclmo fer's correspondents told him that "tho convention system is archaic and Inasmuch ns county conventions nro composed of politicians frequently of tho class of ward heelers, It Is both unwise and Improper that tho nomi nation of Judges should bo left In such hnnds. Under such circumstances, ho pointed out, nominations would bo of fered In payment of political debts. On tho othor hand, thoso Inwyors among his correspondents who op posed the primary method of nomina tion nsseited that In n primary can didates are chosen not because of their fitness, but because of popular clamor, nnd In tho case of Judges, those chosen undor tho prlmery sys tem are left exposed to tho Iniluenco of tho mob. Seymour Stedinan, Chlcngo attor ney, heading a committee represent ing the socinllst party, formally noti fied Kugone V. Debs of his nomination for the ptesldency last Saturday morning nt the tedoral penitentiary in Atlanta, da. The other inenibors of tho commit tee Include Otto llranstetter, Chicago, national executive secretary of tho paity; James O'Neal, associate editor of the New York Call; Julius fiorber, executlvo secretary of the Now York branch of the party, and Dr. Madgo Patton Stephens of Term Houto, Intl., Dobs' homo city. Stedinan Is tho socialist nominee for vlco-prrstdeiit and goneinl counsel for the party. The outrageous iij that Chicago Is being floated In the Constitutional Convention settles the fate of tiny constitution It proposes.
