PREFACE. 

'npHE 37tli General Assembly adjoiirne:! on the 12th of Jane, 1891. 
This volunje contahis all the acts passed by it. The Liws of 
1889 numbered one hundred and sixty-five, as do the acts of 1891. There 
is now no volume in existence except this one, that contains the laws of 
1891. All these laws not containing the emergency clause take effect on 
the first day of July — hence the necessity for the early publication of the 
laws of 1891. The object of the present volume is to place these laws in 
the hands of the profession and business men of the State at the earliest 
possible moment consistent with accuracy. 

In the preparation of this volume, the admirable style and arrange- 
ment adojDted b}'^ Mr. Hurd, in his Revisions of the Statute, have been 
followed. In all cases where an act amends a section of the Revised 
Statutes, it is placed under the head of the chapter to which it belongs; 
and in a note at the foot of the act, is given the page of the Revised 
Statutes wliere the section it amends may be found. Great care has been 
taken to have this edition of the laws accurate. It was printed from 
certified copies read twice by copy in my office, and the revises taken to 
Springfield and carefully compared with the original laws in the office of 
the Secretary of State. I have endeavored in all cases to follow strictly 
the punctuation of the enrolled laws, and in no case has a word been 
changed, supplied, or added to, unless it is inserted between brackets. 

A number of these acts received the approval or veto of the Governor 
during the present week, only five days before the publication of this 
volume.

tory shall become disconnected and wholly separated from such town, both as an incor- 
porated town and as a tovvn under the township organization laws, and shall constitute 
a duly organized town under the name proposed in the aforesaid petition under the 
general township organization laws, and the jurisdiction of the corporate authorities of

indebtedness to be paid by said newly organized town shall be determined and agreed 
upon by the corporate authorities of the said newly organized town and of the original 
town from which such territory is taken, in such manner as they shall elect. If they 
can not agree, then the matter shall be determined by the circuit court of the county 
in which such towns may be, by petition of either town or of any taxpayer of either 
town. The court shall hear and determine the matter in a summary way without 
])leadings, and shall pronounce judgment as the right and equity of the ma'ter shall 
demand. If the respective corporate authority shall agree as to the amount to be paid

thereof to be paid, a copy of which said ordinance shall be duly certified by the clerk 
of each town and filed with the county clerk of the county wherein such towns mav

per centum upon the taxable property, of both the original town and such new town, 
for the payment of any bonds or interest thereon so issued by such incorporated town, 
so that each town shall pay its just share and proportion as agreed upon, or as ad- 
judged by the court. Such new town shall be entitled to its proportionate share of 
all public property, according to ihe amount of taxable property within such new 
town, and shall be charged therewith in a division of the public property of such dis- 
membered incorporated town, and the original town, as divided, shall be charged with 
all the public property within its territory, and all the public funds in the hands of the 
corporate authorities, such division to be agreed upon by the same authorities, or set- 
tled by the court in the same manner and upon the same basis as above provided for 
in dividing the indebtedness, or said dismembered incorporated town. 

431. Division — annual tax levy — pro rata share.] § G. When an incorpo- 
rated town shall be divided as above prescribed, and before such division the muni- 
cipal authorities of said incorporated town had ma le an annual tax levy, then in such 
case there shall be paid over to the treasurer of the new town the pro rata share paid 
by such disconnected territory, of said tax levy for said year, according to the taxable 
property therein as the same existed immediately before such division, and charging 
such territory its proportionate share for the expired part of the fiscal year. 

432. Proceedings commence ijefore division for improving street — how 
carried on.] § 7. When any portion of an incorporated town is disconnected there- 
from under the provisions of this act, and prior to such division proceedings had been 



70 CITIES, VILLAGES AND TOWNS. 

iiislituted for the purpose of improving any streets within such detached portion by 
special assessment or special tax, then in such case such proceediiigs may be carried to 
a finalty whether the whole improvement be within the detached portion or not. If 
the whole improvement is to he made within the detached portion, then the amount 
collected by such proceedings shall be paid over to such new town to be used by 
such town for the purpose for which such proceedings were instituted. If only a part of 
such impiovement is to be made within the detached territory, then such original 
town may proceed with the same as though such division, had not taken place. When 
any portion of any incorporated town shall be disconnected under the provisions of

commissioners for the purpose aforesaid; but if none are furnished such canvassers

said Board of Registry shall further examine him, and shall also swear such canvassers, 
and hear them upon the question, and they shall also have the power to send one or 
both of said canvassers to make further examination, and inquire at the place claimed 
by such person to be his residence, and again examine such canvassers touching the 
same; and if, after such further examination and hearing, the majority of said board 
are of the opinion that such person is not a qualified voter in such precinct, they shall 
mark the word "Yes" under the column of the registry marked "erase," and shall also 
draw a line in ink under his name, which memorandum, in case of any registration, 
shall indicate that the name of such person is erased from the register, and such person 
shall not be entitled to vote unless his name be restored as hereinafter provided. 
During the last hour of said session, if any person so notified to appear at 
such session has not yet appeared and shown cause why his name should 
not be erased from such register, the same shall be erased in the manner aforesaid. 
Persons whose names have been so erased may make application in writing to said 
Board of Election Commissioners within two days thereafter to be restored to such 
register as in the cases before provided for. Either of said clerks shall have the power 
and right of both in the matter pertaining to such canvass, except that both are required 
to go together and make such canvass; but in case either refuses or neglects to go and 
make such canvass as aforesaid, then the other may make such canvass alone. But a 
clerk who wilfully neglects to perform his duty in making such canvass shall be deemed 
guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction shall he imprisoned in the county jail not 
exceeding sixty days nor less than thirty days, and shall also be deemed guilty of a 
contempt of court, and be punished accordingly as an officer of said county court. In 
case of temporary disability on the part of either canvasser or clerk, the judge who

APPOINTMENT OF COMMITTEE TO INVESTIGATE THE CHICAGO LIVE STOCK EXCHANGE. 

Whereas, It has been brought to the knowledge of the members of the 37th 
General Assembly that a corporation organized under the laws of the State of 
Illinois, and known as the Chicago Live Stock Exchange, is exercising the power 
of proliibiting the sale of cattle on the market of the Union Stock lards in the 
city of Chicago for a less sum than 50 cents per head commission, and is compel- 
ling all of its members to charge not less than that sum, and prohibits its members 
from buying live stock from commission men and companies who charge less than 
50 cents per head commission, and 

AVhereas, The said corporation is said to have established a boycott in said j'ards 
against any and all parties who refuse to obey the rules, b}' w^iich minimum com- 
mission is fixed, and 

Whereas, It is believed that the commission men and the buyers of live stock 
on said Union Stock Yards market to the extent of about 500, including all the 
leading buyers and members of said exchange, are acting in combination to the 
detriment of the interests of the feeders and sellers of live stock, and 

Whereas, The price of 50 cents per head commission for the sale of cattle is 
manifestly nearly double a I'easonable price, and 

Whereas, The depressed condition of the fai-ming and stock raising interests 
demand that no unreasonable or unjust restrictions should be mode against them, 
and 

Whereas, It is believed that no corporation organized under the laws of 11;- 
nois has the legal power to pass or enforce a by-law prohibiting its members from 
selling stock on a public market at such prices as the members may desire, an. I 
has no legal power to prevent its members from buying stock in a public market 
from any person whatever; therefore be it 

Resolved^ hy the House of Representatives^ the Senate concurring herein. That 
a joint committee of five members be appointed, two from the Senate and three 
from the House, with full power to iuvestigate said charges, and they are hereby 



152 . JOINT RESOLUTIONS. 



invested with full power and authority to send for persons and papers, and to ad- 
minister oaths; and be it further 

Resolved, That it is hereby made the duty of said committee to investicnate such 
reports and ascertain whether the said Chicago Live Stock Exchange does prohibit 
its members from selh'ng cattle in said stock yards for a less commission than 50 
cents per head, and if so, by what authority; and if it does prohibit its men)bers 
from buying from commission men willing to sell for a less sum than as ]u-e?cribed 
by the rules of the exchange, and if so, by what authority it so acts, and that said 
committee report what legislation is needed, if any, to y)revent any such combina- 
tion from charging or receiving any such unreasonable commissions, and whether 
or not such combination of the commission men who sell other people's live stock, 
and the buyers is consistent with or antagonistic to the interests of the farming 
and stock raising interests of Illinois, and also whether such combination does not 
amount to a conspiracy to the detriment of the people of the State of Illinois, 
and be it further 

Jiesolved, That the said committee shall have the power (in its discretion) 
te employ a stenographer. 

ELECTION OF UNITED STATES SENATOR BY DIRECT VOTE. 

Resolved, by the House of Representatives, the Senate eoiicurriiig herein^ That it

direct vote of the peo])le, and the Representatives in Congress from this State are 
liereby requested and the Senators are directed to advocate and vote for sucli pro- 
posed amendment.

NATIONAL MEMORIAL HALL IN DECATUR. 

Be it resolved hy the S3)iate of the State of llliiiiis, the Ilouie coiivirrlng 
therein. That wc heartily endorse the proi)Osition ()x\ the part of the Grand Army 
of the Republic to erect, by private donations, a National Memorial Hall in the

National defenders. 

Adopted by Senate June, 1891. Concurred in by the House June, 1891. 

SONS OF VETERANS — USE OF TENTS AT ENCAMPMENTS. 

Whereas, The order of the Sons of Veterans is a semi-military organization 
which is uniforming and arming its members at their own expense for the pur- 
pose of preparing said members for active military service in case of emergency, 
and 

Whereas, The said organization for the purpose of instructing its members in 
the military art, holds annual held encampments; therefore be it 

Resolved, hy the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring herein. That 
the Adjutant General of this State be and he is hereby authorized and directed to 
allow the said order of Sons of Yeterans of the State of Illinois to use, at each 
regular annual State encampment, the tents and appurtenances, beds, sacks, etc., 
belonging to this State. 

Provided, That the party or parties making the requisition for the order of 
Sons of Yeterans shall first deliver to the Adjutant General a bond in double the 
value of the stores to be issued, conditioned for the safe return of the same in 
perfect condition, or payment for all losses or damages to such property, and 
shall also pay all expenses of handling, cleaning, cartage, storage, express or

down and handling of said tents.

SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE, 52nD CONGRESS. 

Be it resolved hy the House of Representatives of the 37th General Asseinllrj of 
Illinois, the Senate concurring therein. That in the opinion of tlie inembers 
thereof the speakership of the o2nd National CoTigress should be given to a 
western man, and that Illinois, by reason of her position as the third State in 
population, and never having been honored by the selection of one of her Con- 
gressmen, holds especial claims at this time for the position. We, therefore, 
recommend for Speaker the Hon. Wm. M. Springer, who, for sixteen j'ears, has 
ably represented Illinois in the House of Representatives. His distinguished par- 
liamentary ability, his unimpeachable honesty, and his uniform courtesy, together, 
es])ecially fit him for this honorable position, and we heartily unite in urging the 
Illinois delegation in Congress to use ^very honorable means to secure his election. 

Adopted by the House and concurred in by the Senate May 22, 1891. 

TRANSFERRING LAND TITLES. 

Whereas, There exists a feeling of dissatisfaction with the present system of 
transferring title to land, and it is believed that the vexatious delays and large 
expenses attending such transfers may be avoided by the substituiioii of registra- 
tion of titles in the place of deeds, and that the adoption of the Torrens system 
of registration of titles, as practiced in Australia, British Columbia, Ontario and 
other places, may be practicable in this State; and 

Whereas, It is desirable that the subject be thoroughly investigated, and the 
result of such investigation presented to the public, preparatory to action by the 
Legislature; therefore, be it 

Resolved, By the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring herein. 
That the Governor appoint five competent persons, who shall act without compen- 
sation, whose duty it shall be to make investigation of our present system of trans- 
ferring land titles, and to consider whether a more simple, expeditious and 
inexpensive system, and one that will give greater security of title can not be 
adopted, and especially to inquire into the practical working of what is known as 
the Australian or Torrens system of registration of titles, and whether it can be 
adopted to the Constitution and laws of this State. 

Said Commission shall have power to send for persons and papers, and take such 
testimony as they may deem proper. The said Commission shall report to the 
Governor on or before the first day of November, 1892, and the Governor shall 
cause four thousand copies of such report to be printed and distributed in the 
same manner as is provided for the distribution of the Governor's message. The 
Governor shall also lay such report before the next General Assembly. 

The State shall not assume or become responsible in any manner, in whole or in 
part, for the expenses incurred b3'such Commission. Adopted by the House, May 
1, 1891. Concurred in by the Senate, May 19, 1891. 

the world's COLUMBIAN EXPOSITION. 

Resolved, by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring herein, That 
the thanks of the State of Illinois are hereby tendered to our sister States and 
Territories for their kind efforts to make the World's Columbian Exposition a 
world famed success, and that a copy of this resolution be suitably engrossed and 
transmitted to the Executive of the various States and Territories. 

Adopted by the Senate January 21, 1891. Concurred in by the House January
