INTRODUCTION. 



THE DESIGN OF THIS WORK. No publication of the "Statutes" of Illinois for 
popular use, can do more than present the general laws of the state which are in 
force at the time. This has been done in the edition of statutes which we publish, 
and it is all that can be accomplished within the limits of a single volume. From 
such a book, a very large number of acts must of necessity be excluded, either as be- 
ing not in force, or not of general interest. But a large number of those' very acts 
thus excluded, are of the highest importance to those who are interested in them, 
and it often becomes extremely desirable to know exactly where to find them. These 
pages, then, are intended as a complete guide to all the legislation of the State of 
Illinois, enacted since 1188, whether public or private, repealed or obsolete, but 
not incliiding any acts printed in Gross' Statutes of 1869. It is in two parts, the 
one dealing with the Public acts, the other with the Private acts. 

Part I is a classified synopsis of all the Public Statutes which have been enact- 
ed in the state of Illinois, since its adini&sion into the Union, in 1818. This synop- 
sis is made to perform the oifice of an index, by being arranged in chapters, num- 
bered and entitled to correspond with our "Statutes," and will show : 1. A con- 
cise statement of the general subject, or subjects, embraced in each act. 2. The 
date of the approval of the act, and 3. The book or books and the page where it 
may be found printed at large. This part of the work is brought down to the close 
of the session of 1869. 

Part II is a classified synopsis of all the Private and Local Statutes which have 
been enacted and printed in the state of Illinois, since its admission into the Union, 
in 1818. The classification is by counties, with sub-titles for cities and towns. All 
acts not capable of being assigned to any particular locality, are grouped under 
general, and it is hoped, convenient titles, and the whole is then alphabetically ar- 
ranged. A glance at the table of contents will make this plain. The only private 
acts not comprised in this index, are the private acts of 1869, not yet in print. 

To avoid any possible mistake, a further word of explanation should perhaps be 
added. In some instances, private and local acts have been placed in Part I. This 
is where there is a chapter in that Part entitled with precisely the subject of the act. 
For instance: Roads, Courts, Plank roads and Railroads. Some charters of incor- 
porated companies, which contain no allusion to their locality are indexed under 
Corporations. On the other hand, those classes of public acts, which could not 
properly be placed under any chapter of the "Statutes," will be found arranged in 
the second Part. 

BOOKS IN WHICH THE STATUTES OP ILLINOIS HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED. In Or- 
der to assist in the examination of past Legislation, we have prepared a list of all 
the books in which the statutes of the state of Illinois have been published. It will 
be seen that the first book named, is the session laws of 1819, although there was a 
session of the Legislature commencing 5 Oct. 1818. No laws were enacted at that 
session, as an examination of its journals will show, and the reason assigned is that 
the state had not then been admitted into the Union. The formal resolution for 
the admission of Illinois as a state was not finally passed by congress until 3 Dec. 
1818. Hence the first laws enacted by the state of Illinois, were the acts of 1819.

IWTKODUCTION. V 

REVISIONS AND COMPILATION s. Indiana Territory was organized under an act 
of Congress approved 7 May 1800, which fixed the seat of government for the Ohio 
Territory at Chilicothe on the Scioto river, and that of the Indiana Territory at 
Saint Vincennes, on the W abash river. What was then called Indiana included 
what is now Illinois, Indiana and most of Michigan. In the year 1807 Stout & 
Smoot, "printers to the Territory" of Indiana, issued a volume of 540 pages. This was : 

1. The Revision of John Rice Jones and John Johnson, "comprising those for 
merly in force, and the original acts passed at the first session of the 
second general assembly of said territory, begun and held at the borough of Vin- 
cennes," 16 Aug. 1807. All the acts are signed by Jesse B. Thomas, as speaker of 
the house of representatives, B. Chambers president of the council, and approved 
by William Henry Harrison as governor. Terms of the common pleas court were 
to be held in the counties of Dearborn, (Chicago was formerly Fort Dearborn) 
Clark, Knox, (Vincennes was in Knox) Randolph and St. Clair. It would appear 
from this that the two oldest counties in Illinois were Randolph and St. Clair. The 
Supreme court was to be held at Vincennes. Very many sections in this old book 
will be instantly recognized as a part of the law as it is in force to-day, and some- 
times whole pages appear almost word for word as we have them now. Attach- 
ments were not permitted except against non-resident debtors. Divorce from bed 
and board for extreme cruelty was allowed. The provisions relating to the licens- 
ing of attorneys were almost exactly as at present. So also, the chapter on Trespass. 
There are some curious provisions. For instance : "If any person of the age of 
sixteen years and upwards, shall profanely curse, damn or swear, by the name of 
God, Christ Jesus or the Holy Ghost, every person so offending being.thereof con- 
victed shall forfeit and pay for every such profane curse, damn or oath, a sum not 
exceeding two dollars, nor less than fifty cents, at the discretion of the justice who 
may take cognizance thereof; and in case he shall refuse or neglect to pay the said 
forfeiture, or goods and chattels cannot be found whereof to levy the same by dis- 
tress, he shall be committed to the charge of one of the supervisors of the highways 
of the township where the offense was committed, to be kept at hard labor for the 
space of two days for every such offense of which such person shall be convicted." 
And again: "If any person or persons shall kill any one or more neat cattle, or 
hogs in the woods, he shall within three days show the head and ears of such hog or 
hogs, and the hide with the ears on, of such neat beast or cattle to the next magis- 
trate, or two substantial freeholders, under the penalty of ten dollars." And any 
person selling any hog, shoat or pig without ears, was to be deemed a hog stealer. 
This revision was made in pursuance of a resolution passed at a former session. The 
volume closes with an act which declares all former acts repealed, except as therein 
revised and re-enacted. 

On the 3d day of February 1809, congress passed an act dividing the Indiana Ter- 
ritory into two separate governments. For the first time the Illinois territory had 
an independent existence. The act was to take effect 1 Mar. 1809. The seat of 
government was established at Kaskaskia, on the Mississippi. 

2. The second Revision was by Nathaniel Pope. He had been the first governor * 
of the new territory of Illinois. His commission was signed by James Madison, and 
was dated 7 Mar. 1809. He took the oath of office 5 April 1809. His first official act 
was to divide the territory into the two counties of St. Clair and Randolph. After- 
wards, when Ninian'Edwards was appointed the governor of the territory, Gov. 
Pope became secretary. On the 14th of March 1812, Gov. Edwards ordered an 
election for the purpose of ascertaining the wish of the people about organizing under 
the act of congress as one of the territories of the second class. September 14 he is- 
sued his proclamation declaiming that a majority of those who had expressed an 
opinion were in favor of the proposed change, and calling for an election of mem- 
bers of the legislature to be held on the 8th, 9th and 10th days of October. The legis- 
lature had its first session, beginning 25 Nov. 1812. 

The laws which were enacted at that and the succeeding sessions of the legisla- 
ture, were not gathered together until 1815. On the 4th of July of that year, Mat- 
thew Duncan, printer to the Territory, issued from his office in Kaskaskia, the revi- 
sion of Nathaniel Pope. It was in two volumes. The first had 304 pages and an 
index : thp second was paged from 30fi to 710, nnd nlso contained a copious and care- 



vi INTRODUCTION. 

ful index. The counties liail now increased to six, namely: Madison and St. 
('lair in the first circuit, Randolph and Johnson in the second, and Gallatin and 
Edwards in the third. 

The similarity of this book to the present statutes is much more striking than 
the resemblance in Jones' Revision. Whole chapters appear in the form that they 
still wear. Indeed the entire plan and arrangement of the statutes of Illinois 
taken as -i wlx>k remain at this moment in the shape that Judge Pope impressed 
njM.n them. To him really belongs whatever of merit that plan may possess. His 
book is now rare, only a few copies being accessible. It contains of course many 
curious provisions. Thus, attorneys' fees are limited: "In all civil actions where 
the titles of land do not come in question $2.50. Where titles of land do come in 
question $5. For every verbal advice where suit is not depending $1.25. Written 
advice where suit is not depending $2.50." A constable was allowed fifty cents 
"lor whipping each person for a misdemeanor by order of any court or justices of 
the peace." Attachments against absconding debtors, are authorized. The punish- 
ment for stealing a horse, or receiving a stolen horse, by an act of 26 Oct. 1808, is 
death. There is a very stringent act to prevent dueling, which was passed 7 April 
1810, and is said to have been adopted from the Virginia code. A reward of $50. 
to each citizen and *25. to each ranger who shall kill a hostile Indian, is offered by 
act of 24 Dec. 1814. For pursuing such an Indian to his own country and there 
killing him, #100. Larceny and many other crimes are punishable by whipping, in 
the discretion of the court. The first act in Pope's revision is one declaring what 
laws were then in force in the territory. As such, it specifies all the general laws 
of Indiana which were in force on the 1st of March 1809, and the laws passed by the 
governor and judges of the Illinois territory, and un repealed by them. 

X. The session laws of 1819, though perhaps not usually so considered, are really the 
next revision of the laws of Illinois. It comprises the statutes which were enacted 
by the first legislature which assembled after the state was admitted into the 
Union. At the first glance it has no appearance of being anything more than a 
confused collection of acts, some public and some private, with no attempt at a di- 
vision into chapters. But a more careful examination of the acts themselves, and the 
subjects to which they relate, will show that the subjects of the several public acts 
are so arranged as to succeed each other in alphabetical order, following the ar- 
rangement of Pope's revision. Indeed it would appear that all the former acts on 
each subject had been consolidated and re-enacted as one act, with but little amend- 
ment. Xear the close of the volume is an act repealing all the former laws of the 
territory, with some few specified exceptions, chiefly of private acts. It contains 
:r>7 pages,' and concludes with a copious and careful index. It was printed at Kas- 
kaskia. From that time until 1827, the legislature contented itself with merely 
amending the acts of 1819, isssiiing at the close of each session a thin volume em- 
bodying their labors. 

4. But at the session of 1827, another revision was prepared. Hon. Samuel D. 
Lockwood, who was at that time a judge of the supreme court, says that at the 
session of 1827 the legislature, by an act for the purpose, authorized and requested 
the supreme judges to prepare a revision. For various reasons, however, the duty 
of preparing a full code of statutes was but partially completed. Judges Lockwood 
and Smith presented the result of their labors, which was adopted, and the laws 
then presented by them, have been a part of every revision since. They are said to 
have been the the authors of the laws under the titles Abatement, Account, Amend- 
ments and Jeofails, Apprentices, Attachments, Attorneys, Bail, Bills of Exchange, 
Chancery, Conveyances, Courts, Depositions, Detinue, Dower, Evidence, Forcible 
Entry and Detainer, Fugitives from Justice, Habeas Corpus, Jails ' and Jailers, 
Limitations, Mandamus, Minors and Orphans (now Guardian and Ward), Ne 
Exeat and Injunctions, Oaths and Affirmations, Practice, Promissory Notes, Re- 
plevin, Right of Property and Sheriffs and Coroners. The Criminal Code was pre- 
pared by Judge Lockwood. The act concerning Frauds and Perjuries, by Judge 
McRoberts. Insolvent Debtors, by Judge Sawyer. Wills and Testaments, by Judge 
Young. Judgments and Executions, by Henry Starr. The legislature determined 
to undertake the remainder of the work, and the result was the revision of 1827. 
It is a volume of 384 pages. Unlike the statutes of 1819, it contains no general act 



INTRODUCTION. VU 

repealing former laws ; but at the end or each act is a section, which in terms re- 
peals the former acts on that particular subject. The various acts are separated by 
titles, most of which are now the titles of chapters. It was printed at Vandalia. 

At the next session, in 1829, it was found that the revision of 1827 had omitted a 
considerable number of very important acts ; these were therefore revised and re- 
enacted, in the same manner as those in the former volume, so that this book is 
really a supplement to the revision of 1827, and it takes an examination of both vol- 
umes to show the condition of the law on a given subject. For this reason proba- 
bly, the acts of 1829 were entitled "Revised Laws," and have usually been cited as 
the Revised Laws of 1829. This volume was printed at Cincinnati, for publishers in 
Shawneetown. 

5. The next revision is that of 1833. It contains nothing to show by whom it 
was prepared. The plan and arrangement is the same as before. There is no di- 
vision into chapters. Three thousand five hundred copies were printed by the state 
for distribution. The printing was done at Vandalia. Former acts are in terms 
repealed, and a list of them is given. It does not contain the militia law, which 
was printed separately. 

6. In 1839, Stephen F. Gale, of Chicago, published a compilation of the statutes, 
prepared by himself. It was a careful work and for a long time was the chief au- 
thority for statute law in Illinois. Many references to it appear in the earlier re- 
ports. The plan of arrangement was very simple, being the same which was after- 
wards pursued by Judge Purple, and in Gross' statutes. That plan is merely this : 
To give all the acts on each subject together, under a single general title, and to 
follow the order of time in placing the various amendments. This book, being a 
compilation, and brought out by private enterprise, without the authority of the 
legislature, did not attempt to modify any statute it simply presented them in a 
convenient form. 

7. We come now to the last revision that of 1845. It was prepared by General 
Mason Brayman, an eminent lawyer. He has so well described the character of 
the task he performed that we re-produce his language: "The only object possi- 
ble of attainment was sought that of collating and arranging the laws of the state, 
in accordance with their true spirit and intention, making them plain and intelligi- 
ble, and relieving them from that smothering load of useless verbiage, contradic- 
tions and doubts, which had been accumulating through so many years of changing 
legislation. The object became, not so much to make new laws, or to depart mate- 
rially from the spirit and meaning of those already existing, as to plain away ex- 
crescences, reconcile contradictions, and condense and arrange in convenient order 
all that remained in force at the time. Everything that had been repealed or su- 
perseded was omitted conflicting provisions were reconciled, and sections which 
Avere obscure, involved or doubtful in their meaning, were re-written, so as to ex- 
press the evident intention of the legislature, and conform to constructions tixed by 
the supreme court." The general plan and outline of the statutes remained as be- 
fore, the book of Mr. Gale being closely followed. This is the last revision that 
has been made of the laws of Illinois. The work was so well and faithfully done 
that, although a new constitution was adopted in 1848, the book of statutes in com- 
mon use remained the same. The changes in the constitution made some changes 
in the laws necessary, but the revision of 1845 and the session laws were every where 
consulted, and no new publication of statutes was attempted for nearly twelve years. 
The state published and distributed among the public officers who were required 
to know and to carry out the law, an edition often thousand copies. 

8. In 1856, Norman H. Purple, of Peoria, a distinguished lawyer, and former] y ;i 
judge of the Supreme court, published a compilation of the statutes of Illinois, in 
two octavo volumes. The plan was simple. Following the revision of 1845, the 
new acts were one by one placed next after the chapters to which they were most 
nearly related. It was annotated with references to many decisions of the supreme 
court, and has always been a popular book with the lawyers. The state purchased, 
for distribution, one thousand copies. 

, 9. Two years later a compilation of the statutes, also in two volumes, was pub- 
lished by D. B. Cooke and company of Chicago. The names of Samuel II. -Treat, 
Walter B. Scates and Robert S. Blackwell appear on the title page as the compilers. 
It is usually cited as Scates' Compilation, and is commonly understood to have been

mainly prepared by Judge Scales. The slate purchased two thousand copie*. 
10. Ten years afterwards in December, 1868 the first edition of Gross' statutes, 
one thousand in all, was published. The state purchased five hundred copies, and 
an act was passed declaring it to be evidence in the courts. A second edition has 
been prepared, and is now in use, including the acts of 1869.

TIME WHEN STATUTES TAKE EFFECT. Under the constitution of 1848, no public 
act is in force until the lapse of sixty days from the adjournment of the general as- 
sembly, unless otherwise expressly so stated in the act itself. Art. 3 23. It ha* 
long been the practice, in the official publication of the laws of each session, to 
mark against each act the date when it was supposed to take effect. But this date 
has almost uniformly been computed as sixty days from the day when the act was 
approved, and not from the close of the session. Many mistakes on this point have 
therefore crept into the various publications of our statutes. For convenience of 
reference, a table of the sessions of the general assembly is subjoined, by which the 
time when any act went into operation can be determined at a glance. It is pre- 
pared from a careful examination of the journals of the assembly. Consult on this 
subject, Wheeler v. Chubbuck, 16 111. 361.

REPEALING STATUTES. 

NOTE. This is an attempt to bring together 
and classify the acts which in terms repeal a 
former act. It is doubtless incomplete. The 
general subject of the acts repealed is shown by 
the side titles in italic; the classification follows 
the revised statutes of 1845. The different re- 
pealing acts are separated by periods. Words 
expressing the subject of any particular act 
refer to the repealed and not to the repealing 
act. Reference is first made to the book and 
page of the repealing act, and afterwards, in 
parenthesis, a reference is in many cases made 
to the book and page of the act repealed. The 
abbreviation "Ib." if not in parenthesis, cites 
the last preceding reference which is not in pa- 
renthesis. "Ib." in parenthesis, cites the last 
preceding reference in parenthesis.
