THOMPSON, Chief Justice of the SupremejConrt There is a very substantial chanee nroposed with respect to the selection of the members of the general assembly. Under the nMomi tnf1rnrlmi . tha general assembly consists of a senate of fifty-one senatorial districts into which the state is apportioned. Because of the extraordinary in crease in. population of the county of Cook, it is apparent that the majority of the population of the state will soon reside there, and if the state is apportioned in accord ance with population, the majority of the members of the general as sembly will be elected from dis tricts, within the county of Cook. The proposed new constitution provides that the general assembly shall consist of a senate oi iiuy seven members and a house of representatives of 153 members. Nineteen of the senators are to be elected from senatorial districts in Cook county and thirty-eight sena tors are to be elected from sena torial districts in the state outside of the county of Cook. The members of the lower house of the general assembly will be elected from 153 representative dis tricts into which the state will be apportioned in accordance with the number votine for governor at the to rii.twcr ahaii be formed of compact, lasaf 25 and representatives -at and contiguous territory and shall j 1,. 21 years of age. , No person be bounded by county1 lines except gnau a member of the general in counties comprising two or more assembly who holds any other lu districU when such districts may j crative public office or employment h hounded by precinct or ward ; (excent aa a militia officer or Jus- lines, tice of the peace) or is not a citizen The territory now rorming me 0r the United States or nas noi re- county of Cook shall constitute 19 aided for five-years in the state and senatorial districts, -rue usrrtiuijr forming the rest of the state shall constitute 38 senatorial districts. At each apportionment the number so voting in the county of Cook shall be divided by 19 and the quotient shall be the senatorial ratio for for two years next before his elec tion in the territory forming the district This section is a revision of part of Sec. 3. Art. IV. of the constitution . , of 1870. Toe substance of the section ia not altered. . . .

The senatorial dis tricts in each territory shall con tain as nearly as practicable the ratio for hat territory, but in no case less than three-fourths of such ratio. . At each apportionment the num ber so voting in the entire state shall be divided by 153 and the quotient shall be the representative ratio for the state. Representative districts shall, contain as nearly as practicable the representative ratio. No districts shall contain less than four-flfths of the representative ratio.

It is therefore possible for Cook county to block any legis lation which it does not desire if it obtains a majority of the house of representatives, and by their majority in the senate xne aown state districts will always be able to block any legislation they do not desire. This will prevent either di vision of the 'state , from forcing legislation which the other division does not .want. It' will compel a compromise it the two divisions of the state become deadlocked. End Minority Rule. Another important change is the abolition of minority representa tion. Under the present constitu tion, three representatives Counties comprising not less than one ratio and .three-fourths shall be divided into two or more districts. Each district in counties compris ing more than two districts shall contain at least the full ratio. ' section 24. ir the general as sembly fails to make any such ap portionment it shall be the duty of the secretary of state, the attorney general and the auditor of public accounts to meet at the office of bered districts in 1926 and every four years thereafter. Representa tives shall be elected in 1924 and every two years thereafter. Sena tors shall hold office for four years and representatives for two years beginning on the day 01 the con vening of the regular session next after the election. Vacancies shall be filled by special elections called j by the governor. TMi section is a icviaion of See. 3. Art. IV, constitution of lb70. to eon- ' form to tba chaoses made by Sec. 2a. Time of Meeting and Rules. Section 27. The general assem bly shall convene at noon on Wed nesday after the, first Monday in January in odd' numbered years. The secretary of state shall pre side over the house of representa tives until a temporary presiding officer ia chosen who shall preside until a speaker is chosen. The lieutenant-governor shall preside over the senate and may vote in case of tie. The senate shall choose a" president to preside during the ab sence or pending the impeachment of the lieutenant-governor or while he acts as governor. This section is a reTision of parts ot Sec. I. Art. IV, of the constitution of 1870. governing the organization uf tne general assembly. Section 28.
