GEN. DAVIS ANSWERS CONSTITU
Gen. Abel Davis, president of the
Chicago Title & Trust Company, has
answered critics of the proposed new
constitution for Illinois.
1 Gen. Davis said that objections
based on omissions of the phrases "in
the year of our Lord"- and "A. D." are
"groundless and that these omissions
do not make the document defective.
"If the omission in referring all
dates back to the beginning of the
Christian era would justify rejection,
the United States and Illinois would
have lost their charters because the
same objection can be raised to the
Magna Charter, the Declaration of
Independence,-the Constitution of the
the United States and Illinois', three j
past constitutions." S

introduced a resolution calling for one

his friends before embarking for Pa

support be given the new king and
queen. He added: "I have had some
unhappy days and do not regret this
His consuming ambition, he con
cluded, was to return later as a simple
citizen and visit his son, the new king.
This request was communicated to the
revolutionary committee, which de
clined to sign a document empowering
his private return.
One of Constantine's last acts was
to summon a lawyer and initiate legal
steps to assure the fortune of the
widow of his dead son, King Alexan

whom he had a daughter.

Following the recent Chicago ad
