ation, and shall also note thereon the day when he will hear the same,

State. The case may be heard and determined by the county or cir- 
cuit court in term time, or by the judges thereof in vacation, at any 
time not less than three (t,) days after service of process and shall 
have preference in the order of hearing to all other cases. The pe- 
titioner shall give security for all costs. 

If, in the opinion of the Court, in which the petition is filed, the 
grounds for contest alleged are insufficient in law, the petition shall 
be dismissed. If the grounds alleged are sufficient in law, the Court 
shall proceed in a summary manner and may hear evidence, examine 
the returns, re-count the ballots and make such orders and enter such 
judgment as justice may require. The Court shall ascertain and de- 
clare by a decree, as in chancery, to be entered of record in the proper

primary. Whoever violates the provisions of this section shall be fined 
in a sum not less than twenty-five (25) nor more than one hundred 
(100) dollars. It shall be the duty of the sheriff, constable, coroner 
and other officers of the county, the magistrates and mayors of cities

exceeding one thousand (1,000) dollars, or imprisoned in the county 
jail not exceeding one (i) year, or both in the discretion of the Court;

prived of the right to vote at a primary in this State, and be impris- 
oned in the county jail not less than one year, and be committed to jail 
in default of the payment of costs of prosecution until such costs are 
fully paid. Prosecutions may be had under this section by indictment 
in the circuit court, or by information in the county courts, and the 
effect of a sentence of disfranchisement in either of said courts both 
having jurisdiction of offenses hereunder, shall be to deprive such per- 
sons sentenced of the right to vote at any primary within this State for 
the period of time fixed by the court where such person shall be con- 
victed under this section. Any candidate, or other person paying, 
furnishing or promising to pay or furnish or bribing such person, with

thereof, shall not be liable to punishment therefor, but shall be a com- 
petent witness and compelled to testify in prosecutions under this sec- 
tion. Solicitations of any person or a loan of money, or the purchase

franchised by a court of competent jurisdiction, who shall before the 
expiration of his term of disfranchisement, vote or offer to vote at any 
primary within this State shall, upon indictment and conviction thereof 
in a court of competent jurisdiction, be confined in the penitentiary for

shall result in one way or in the event that any person shall or shall 
not be nominated or shall receive a greater number of votes than 
others, upon conviction thereof shall be fined in a sum not exceeding 
one thousand (1000) dollars, or imprisoned in the county jail not 
exceeding one year, or both, in the discretion of the Court.

adopted : 

"Whereas, An inmate of one of our State institutions has lately met with 
a terrible injury therein, in some manner at present not satisfactorily ex- 
plained, and which from the character and objects of the institution we 
believe would be impossible; and, 

"Whereas, Our State institutions have been and now are severely criticized 
and the fair name of our State is unjustly assailed by reason of said injury 
and rumors of other cases in our State institutions showing improper, negli- 
gent or incompetent care of the wards of the State; and, 

"Whereas, The liberal appropriations made by the State Legislature to 
bring the State institutions up to a high plane of effectiveness and secure 
thoroughly scientific, humane and liberal treatment for all the State wards 
should serve as a guarantee that the most conscientious care and effective 
and humane treatment shall in every instance be extended to our wards; and, 

"Whereas, This body and the people of this State are entitled to be fully 
informed as to the cause of and the responsibility for said injury, as well 
as of and for any and all other instances of incompetency, irregularity, negli- 
gence or other impropriety referred to; therefore be it 

"Resolved, That a committee of five members, together with such assistance 
as may be necessary, be appointed by the Speaker of this House, to thoroughly 
investigate the cause of, and the responsibility for, the said injury, as well 
as of and for such cases brought before it indicating injury to or improper, 
negligent or incompetent treatment of the inmates of our State institutions, 
and any negligence, incompetent or improper conduct on the part of any 
of the State employes connected with such institutions, and report its findings 
back to this body. Said committee to have power to subpoena and compel 
witnesses to attend and testify and to compel the production of all documents, 
exhibits or other evidence they may deem necessary to gain a correct under- 
standing of all matters that may be under consideration by it." 

Whereas, The Speaker of the House on said day did appoint a committee 
for the purposes set forth in the resolution; and, 

Whereas, The said committee has been diligently prosecuting the investi- 
gation ordered by said resolution. By reason of the amount of work to be

the improvement of the Illinois and Little Wabash rivers," approved March 
27, 1874, in force July 1, 1874, have at various times heretofore executed 
leases of water power and water privileges to private individuals and cor- 
porations, under and by virtue of the powers granted to said commissioners

and. 

Whereas, The said Harold T. Griswold or his assignees, by virtue of said 
alleged leases or agreements are building and constructing certain dams,

such work shall cease to be advantageous to the State;" and, 

Whebeas, The construction of such dams, controlling works, locks and 
other obstructions being erected and constructed by the said Harold T. Gris- 
wold, or his assigns, have ceased to be advantageous to the State and that

and by virtue of said alleged leases or agreements are necessary for the pur- 
pose of the canal; therefore, be it 

Resolved, by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring therein, 
That said canal commissioners are hereby empowered and directed to cancel 
and annul said alleged leases or agreements and any and all extensions there- 
of and to resume all such water power and water privileges therein pur-

commissioners on September 2, A. D. 1904, and that said water power and

of this State, to-wit: 

Resolved, That the separate section of the constitution of this State re- 
lating to the canal be amended to read as follows: 

The Illinois and Michigan canal, or other canal or waterway owned by the 
State shall never be sold or leased until the specific proposition for the sale

votes polled at such election. The General Assembly shall never loan the 
credit of the State or make appropriations from the treasury thereof, in aid

river at or near Utica, which may be practical for a general plan and scheme- 



JOINT RESOLUTIONS. I03 



of deep waterway along a route, which may be deemed most advantageous 
for such plan of deep waterway; and for the erection, equipment and main- 
tenance of power plants, locks, bridges, dams and appliances suflScient and 
suitable for the development and utilization of the water power thereof; and 
authorize the issue, from time to time, of bonds of this State in a total

ject to a re-valuation each ten years of the term created, and the income there- 
from shall be paid into the treasury of the State.

Deep Watebway Committee. 

(Senate Joint Resolution No. 23.) 

Whereas, There has never been adequate and comprehensive legislation 
in the State of Illinois relating to the rights of the State in Lake Michigan, 
the Mississippi, the Wabash and the Ohio rivers, as set forth in Act 1 of 
the constitution, or to Rock river, the Illinois river, the Vermilion, the 
Kankakee river, the Embarrass river, the Kaskaskia river and the Little 
Wabash river and their various tributaries, covering the subjects of sani- 
tation and navigation, water power, reclaiming waste lands and kindred 
matters; and. 

Whereas, The overflowed lands of these streams are of incalculable value, 
if redeemed, and of little or no value as they now are, besides being a menace 
to the health of a large and increasing population; and. 

Whereas, The State has expended large sums of money in making and 
maintaining the Illinois and Michigan canal, and expended money for the 
improvement of the Illinois river and the Little Wabash, and granted a 
charter to the Sanitary Canal Commissioners, with vast and sweeping powers, 
which said commission is now seeking to enlarge its powers by further legis- 
lation; and. 

Whereas, Much of the past expenditure, by reason of changed conditions, 
has been unwise or ceased to be of value; and. 

Whereas, All intelligent and progressive people of the State are in favor 
of a deep waterway from the lake to the gulf, and do not desire to retard 
the making of such a channel; and. 

Whereas, The taxpayers of the State have the right to demand that 
neither the State nor its citizens have any of their rights abridged or taken 
from them by hasty and ill-advised action of the General Assembly; now, 
therefore, be it 

Resolved, by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring therein, 
That in order to fully, carefully and promptly investigate the subject matter 
above referred to, that the presiding officer of the Senate be, and is hereby 
authorized to appoint five (5) members of the Senate; and that the Speaker 
of the House be, and he is hereby authorized to appoint five (5) members 
of the House; and that the Governor be requested and is hereby authorized 
and empowered to appoint five (5) well qualified and disinterested men to 
act with the members of the Senate and House, and who, together with said 
members of the Senate and House, shall be known as "The Deep Waterway 
Committee." 

It shall be their duty to ascertain the rights and powers of the State of 
Illinois to the waters mentioned herein, and to make a comprehensive and 
exhaustive investigation of the rivers and canals of this State; and to define 
and report what need there is for legislation in reference thereto, and to con- 



I04 JOINT RESOLUTIONS. 



sider and define the rights of the State and riparian owners to the inherent 
or developed water power, factory sites, tolls for transportation on said 
waters, reasonable prices of water power upon these canals and rivers, and 
to make recommendation for such legislation as will promote the welfare 
of the whole people and restrain any over-reaching and oppressive action 
of any individual or corporation relative to any part of the subject involved; 

Also to devise and recommend the appointment of a suitable commission, 
to be permanently established, with power to control the uses and charges 
of such waterways, keeping the rights of the State, the rights of individuals 
and corporations and the rights of the people who may desire to use these 
(Waters, along lines similar to the Railroad and Warehouse Commission in 
reference to common carriers. 

And that these persons so to be appointed, at once enter upon their, duties 
here outlined, and that they may be required to make on or before August 
1, 1908, a full report of their action in the premises to the Governor, with such 
bills or amendments to the present laws as they may deem wise and needful. 

And that these persons, so to be appointed, at the time of making their 
report, present a sworn account of their expenses and the time in which 
they were engaged in 'this service; 

And that the Governor be requested to recommend to the next General 
Assembly an appropriation to defray such expenses and pay these persons 
so to be appointed for their services thus rendered. 

Adopted by the Senate, October 15, 1907. 

Concurred in by the House, October 16, 1907. 



Employment Commission. 

(Senate Joint Resolution No. 19.) 

Resolved, by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring herein. 
That the Governor is hereby authorized and requested to appoint a commis- 
sion consisting of three representative men who are either manufacturers 
or employers of labor, three representative men who are employes, one rep- 
resentative man learned in the law, one representative man who is a physician 
or one who is familiar with the standard of sanitation, and one representative 
citizen who is neither an employer of labor nor an employe, who shall serve 
without remuneration, and whose duties shall be to thoroughly investigate 
and report to the Governor, by bill or bills, or otherwise, the most advisable 
method, or methods, for providing for the health, safety and comfort of the 
employes of factories, mercantile establishments, mills and workshops in this 
State, for consideration and action by members of the 46th General Assembly.

FoBEST Preserve District Commission. 

(House Joint Resolution No. 34.) 

Whereas, A bill was pending on third reading in the Senate of the Forty- 
fifth General Assembly on the subject of forest preserve legislation, and 

Whereas, It was deemed best to delay final action on such bill pending 
action of the voters on the Chicago Charter, and. 

Whereas, Lands now can be secured in the Desplaines valley, and other 
places near Chicago for an outer belt park system at a cost which places the 
creation of such outer belt park system within the range of possibilities, and. 

Whereas, It is desirable and necessary that the forest and natural park 
lands along the Desplaines and Calumet river, the Skogie valley, be reserved 
for the benefit and pleasure of the citizens of the northern counties of the 
State, and, 



JOINT RESOLUTIONS. IO5 



Whereas, There has been a long continued demand for the same, and, 

Wheeeas, An Act was passed by the Forty-fourth General Assembly cre- 
ating a forest preserve district, but which was ambiguous and unsatisfactory, 
and nothing has been accomplished under same; 

Resolved, by the House of Representatives of the State of Illinois, the 
Senate concurring herein, That a commission of ten (10) in number be ap- 
pointed, consisting of five (5) members of the House, to be appointed by the 
Speaker, and five (5) members of the Senate to be appointed by the President 
thereof, for the purpose of investigating and reporting to the Forty-sixth 
General Assembly in regard to the creation of forest preserve districts, and 
to recommend such legislation in regard thereto as such commission may 
deem desirable. 

It shall be the duty of such commission to hold its first meeting in the 
city of Chicago before the first day of January, 1908, and to hold such other 
meetings as the commission may from time to time deem necessary.

Jamestown Ter-Centenniax Exposition. 
(House Joint Eesolution No. 43.) 

Whekeas, By an Act of the General Assembly approved May 18, 1905, a 
commission was created, known as the Illinois State Commission at the 
Jamestown Ter-Centennial Exposition, and by said Act the said commission 
was given six months after the close of said exposition to close up the 
affairs of the State of Illinois; and. 

Whereas, Said exposition closed on the 30th day of November, 1907, and 
was soon after it was closed placed in the hands of a receiver appointed by 
the United States Court and is now in the hands of such receiver, and on this 
account the title to the land on which the various State buildings were built 
were clouded so that the commission was unable to sell the Illinois State 
building without great sacrifice; and. 

Whereas, By a recent decision of the United States Court, the cloud on 
the titles mentioned have been removed and the time has been extended 
three months to the various states to sell their buildings; and. 

Whereas, The life of said Illinois commission expires on June the 1st, 1908; 
therefore, be it 

Resolved, by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring herein, 
That the time for said commission to close up the business of the State of 
Illinois be extended for the period of eight months from June 1, 1908. 

Adopted by the House, May 22, 1908. 

Concurred in by the Senate, May 23, 1908. 



Matters of Legislation. 
(Senate Joint Resolution No. 25.) 

Whereas, Under the joint resolution adjourning the General Assembly until 
October 8, 1907, it was ordered that all bills then pending should be laid upon 
the table and at this adjourned session only matters pertaining to the deep 
waterway should be considered; and. 

Whereas, On October 8, 1907, the Governor sent to the General Assembly 
a special message in which he named a number of subjects for consideration 
by the General Assembly; and. 

Whereas, It is not desirable or expedient at this time to take up general 
legislation; but. 

Whereas. It is desirable that certain matters of legislation suggested In 
the message of the Governor of May 10, 1907, and October 8, 1907, be con- 
sidered at this time; therefore, be it 



I06 JOINT RESOLUTIONS.

Concurred in by the House, January 4, 1908. 



Shawneetown Levee — ^Memorial to Congress. 
(Senate Joint Resolution No. 27.) 

Whereas, The city of Shawneetown was laid out by the general govern- 
ment in the year 1809 and is the oldest town in Illinois since the lamentable 
destruction of Kaskaskia; and. 

Whereas, Said city of Shawneetown many years ago constructed a levee 
about it to protect its citizens and their homes and property from the period- 
ical floods of the Ohio and Wabash rivers, which levee also serves as the only 
harbor of safety in times of high water and storms between Mt. Vernon, 
Indiana, and the mouth of the Saline river, a distance of some fifty miles, 
for steam boats and other water crafts navigating said rivers and transport- 
ing freight and passengers and carrying the U. S. mail to and from points 
along said rivers; and, 

Whereas, Said levee is in great need of being enlarged, strengthened and 
repaired to serve its purpose and preserve the work already done, and the 
Internal Improvement Commission of Illinois has estimated that it will re- 
quire the expenditure of at least $53,115.00 to accomplish the work in the 
most economical way; and. 

Whereas, This General Assembly has appropriated $17,000.00 for making 
the repairs most urgently needed and said work is now being done under the 
supervision of said Internal Improvement Commission; and, 

Whereas, The completion of the work contemplated in the estimate of said 
commission is of general as well as local importance for the reasons above 
set forth; therefore, be it 

Resolved, by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring herein, 
That Congress be and is hereby memorialized to appropriate such sum of 
money as may be necessary to enlarge, strengthen and repair the said levee 
at Shawneetown so as to make said levee permanently safe for the purposes 
for which it was constructed and as a harbor for steamboats and other crafts. 

Resolved, That the U. S. Senators and members of the House of Representa- 
tives from the State of Illinois in Congress are hereby respectfully requested 
to use their united efforts to secure such appropriation. 

Resolved, That copies of these resolutions be sent to the President of the 
Senate, to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, to the Chairman and 
members of the River and Harbor Committee of the National House of Rep- 
resentatives, and to our two United States Senators, Honorable Shelby M. 
Cullom and Honorable Albert J. Hopkins, and to the members of the House 
of Representatives in Congress from this State. 

Resolved, That the Secretary of State, Honorable James A. Rose, is hereby 
requested and authorized to mail said copies of this resolution under the seal 
of the State of Illinois. 

Adopted by the Senate, November 1, 1907.

JOINT RESOLUTIONS — CERTIFICATE. IO7 



Volunteer Retieed List. 

(Senate Joint Resolution No. 30.) 

Whereas, It has been the policy of this country from the beginning to 
maintain a small regular army, and in times of war to rely upon the patriot- 
ism of the people to rally as volunteers in defense of the national flag; and, 

Whereas, It is a recognized fact that the civil war, 1861 to 1865, forms 
the most sanguinary chapter in the history of the world; that the regular 
army during that struggle was maintained at about 25,000 men, while the 
volunteers numbered more than two million five hundred thousand of ofllcers 
and enlisted men; and, 

Whereas, It is a recognized fact that the union of these states was pre- 
served, and the national authority maintained by the patriotism, fortitude 
and valor of the volunteers, to whom this great united people, now enjoying 
the inestimable blessings of a preserved Union, owe a debt of gratitude that 
can never be paid; therefore. 

Resolved, by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring herein, 
That we request the senators and representatives of the 60th Congress from 
the State of Illinois to aid in the prompt enactment of a law in effect creat- 
ing a volunteer retired list upon which may be placed with retired pay, upon 
application, the surviving volunteer officers of the army, navy and marines 
of the United States who served with credit during the civil war; such sur- 
vivors now constituting a small remnant of that body of gallant men who 
led the Union forces to final victory. 

Resolved, further, That in our opinion the precedents of Congressional 
legislation fully justify the enactment of this law — namely, the Acts of 1828 
and 1832, granting retired pay during life to the surviving officers and en- 
listed men of the army, navy and marines of the revolution; the Act of 1901, 
retiring Charles A. Boutelle, a volunteer officer of the Union navy with the 
rank and retired pay of captain of the navy; the Acts of 1904, 1906 and 1907, 
granting increased rank and retired pay to the officers of the regular army 
and navy, based solely on the ground that they had "served with credit dur- 
ing the civil war;" and the Act of 1905 providing for the retirement of two 
officers of volunteers, namely. Generals Joseph R. Hawley and P. J. Oster- 
haus, with the rank and retired pay of brigadier generals. 

Therefore it is further resolved. That in our opinion the surviving officers 
of volunteers of the army, navy and marines who served with credit in the 
great war for the preservation of the Union are entitled to receive from the 
national government honors and emoluments equal to those which had here- 
tofore been bestowed upon any officers who served in time of war in defense 
of the country.
