Mem bers of the Legislature representing districts lying wiibin the so-called valley territory, , without regard to party affiliation, are al ready instituting the preliminary cam ' palgn. It la generally believed by the lead ers that these districts will almost take care Of themselves because of the Intense Inter' est taken In the proposed shin canal. I- - Ont in the other sections of the state, how ever, where the voters are so far removed from the canal tone that it la not a personal matter with them, there will bave to be erne explaining of juat what the bond issue means, and bow it will not bo an added bur .

The relation of the state and federal governments In this connection will be fully explained to these voters. They will be shown how the state must first take care of the ship canal through the water-power zone Before congress win appropriate the 1100 000,000 necessary to carry on the work from TJtica south.

Tho people living In porta of tho state not directly tributary to the proposed canal do' not understand yet how they will bo benefited by it, and they will not vote for tho bond iasuo if they believe that stato money ia to be used in such a manner that it will increaso their taxes.' f-The $20,000,000 of bonds are to be retired by the earnings from tho canal water power. All this enormous water power that win bo created by tho digging of tha channel from Joliet to Utica will belong, to the state, and . the income from this one source alone will bo i sufficient to not only- retire tho bonds and i pay tne interest, even before the bonds are I duo, but to place the state In possession of aa annuai revenue thereafter of several anil lion dollars. : - "We most show to tho voters of Illinois that this la a correct statement of tho eitua tion. In this conneetioa'we wiU also try to point out the great benefit that would corns : to the stato at large from this proposed Inland canal, and at the same time the benefit that would'accrue to the entire middle West, "Then we most make It perfectly plain that this bond issue does not mean an increaso of taxea. . Our plan is to educate tho voters ' along these lines by literature and newspaper article. I am confident that with auch a campaign tho lake to tho gulf water way will be assured."
