What was known as the Chicago charter convention was organized in 1905, the first session being held Dec. 12, that year. Milton J. Foreman was president, Alexander H. ReTell vice-president. M. L. McKinley secretary and Henry Barrett Chamberlin assistant secretary. The convention was made up of delegates chosen by or representing the mayor, city council, governor, assembly, board of education, sanitary trustees, county board, public library board and the Chicago park boards. Its purpose was to frame a comprehensive, simple and elastic charter for the city of Chicago to be submitted to the state legislature for consideration. The work was completed and the charter taken to Springfield in the early part of 1907, where it was Introduced in each house of the legislature and referred to the appropriate committees. Some of the main features of the charter were these: Consolidation in the municipal government of Chicago of the power vested in the board of education, township, park and other local governments within the city; submission of propositions to popular vote; aldermen to be elected once in four years; the raising of adequate revenue by the issue of bonds and by other means; the power to own, maintain and operate all public utilities in the city. Including intramural railroads, subways and tunnels, and telephone, telegraph, gas, electric lighting, heating, refrigerating and power plants; the parks to be under the management of a city department of parks; the public-school system to be a department of the city government and under the control of a board of education of fifteen members appointed by the mayor for terms of three years; the public library to be managed by a board of nine directors appointed by the mayor for terms of six years.
Several radical changes were made by the legislature, one of the most important being the substitution of the old primary system for the one proposed. Another was the redisricting of the city into fifty wards, one alderman to be elected from each. These and other changes aroused much opposition, but the charter was passed May 12, 190". In the senate the vote on the final conference report on the measure was 26 to 10. the only Cook county member to oppose it being Senator P. J. McShane (rep.) from the 4th district. C. E. Cruikshank (rep.) of the 19th district was absent. In the house the vote was 80 yeas to 49 nays. The Cook county members who voted against it were
