An Act to make an appropriation to reimburse Mills Brothers, 
Edward Duffy and others, and to pay them the full appraised 
value of cattle slaughtered, under the direction of the State Board 
of Live Stock Commissioners, in pursuance of the tuberculin test. 

Whereas, The State Board of Live Stock Commissioners, in the 
year 1899, through the State veterinarian and his assistants, tested a 
large number of dairy cattle, with tuberculin, for the discovery of 
tuberculosis; and. 

Whereas, A large number of dairymen were induced to have their 
herds inspected and tested upon alleged misrepresentations by an 
assistant State veterinarian, to the effect that all herds of dairy cattle 
would have to be tested after July 1, 1899, and a fee paid therefor; 
and, 

Whereas, Payment for said cattle, found inflicted by said disease 
under the tuberculin test, was made upon a scale of classes fixed by 
the said State board, and based upon the value of each animal, as 
disclosed and determined by a post mortem examination, and in 
nearly all cases was but a small per cent of the apparent value of said 
cattle, and there was nothing in the appearance of said cattle, or 
within the knowledge of the owners thereof, to indicate the preva- 
lence of any disease; therefore,

An Act to provide appropriations for the equipment of the College 
of Agriculture and the extension of the work of the Agricultural 
Experiment Station. 

Whereas, The State of Illinois has made no appropriations for 
the equipment of the Agricultural College or the conduct of much 
needed experiments provided for in this bill; and, 

Whereas, The Forty-first General Assembly made provisions for 
the construction of a building for the College of Agriculture; and, 

Whereas, The preliminary arrangements made for the enlarge- 
ment of the work of the College of Agriculture have resulted in the 
increase in number of agricultural students by more than five hun- 
dred per cent; and, 

Whereas, The pressing demands for a larger corps of instructors, 
and the enlargement of the course of instruction by the farmers of 
the State, necessitate greatly increased facilities for the College of 
Agriculture; and, 

Whereas, Illinois is possessed of unlimited crop and live stock in- 
terests, existing under soil and climatic conditions, the most 
varied and not yet fully understood, and vfith market conditions 
most favorable, yet whose exactions and changes are not sufficiently 
well known; and, 

Whereas, Certain conditions in the agriculture of the State de- 
mand early and particular attention for reasons of public welfare, 
notably the character and remedies for certain soils known as bogus, 
dead-dog, hard-pan, etc., and the known fact that milk is produced 
under more unsanitary conditions than any other article of human 
food, directly concerning every family of every city and town in the 
State; and, 

Whereas, Whatever contributes to the development of the agri- 
culture of the State adds to its revenues and becomes a permanent 
investment, both public and private; therefore, be it

duction and publication. Such offices shall not be discontinued at 
any time, by ordinance or otherwise, but vacancies therein shall be 
filled in the same manner as the original appointment. The ap- 
pointees to said offices shall be subject to removal by the mayor, but 
the term of office shall be held to expire as soon after the end of the 
term of the mayor appointing as their successors shall be appointed 
and qualified. 

§ 3. In cities having a population of less than fifty thousand 
(50,000) , ascertained as aforesaid, and in villages and incorporated 
towns, the city council or board of trustees may, in their discretion, 
provide by ordinance that the mayor or president, as the case may 
be, shall appoint and designate a superintendent of streets and a 
public engineer, which offices may be discontinued by ordinance, to 
take effect at the expiration of the then fiscal year, and no officer, filling 
any office so discontinued shall have any claim against such city, 
village or town for any compensation after such discontinuance. 
Vacancies therein shall be filled as above provided. The compensa- 
tion and term of office shall be ascertained as in the last paragraph. 

§ 6. In cities within the terms of this act, having a population of 
one hundred thousand (100,000) or more, by the last preceding cen- 
sus of the United States, or of this State, there is hereby created a 
board of local improvements, consisting of the superintendent of 
special assessments and four other members; such four other mem- 
bers shall be nominated by the mayor and shall be confirmed by the 
council or board of trustees of such city; and no one of which, except 
such superintendent of special assessments, shall be the head of any 
department of the government of such city or hold any other office 
or position therein. Said board shall elect from its members a pres- 
ident, a vice-president and an assistant secretary. The superintend- 
ent of special assessments shall be ex-officio secretary of the board. 
In the absence or the inability of the president and the secretary to act, 
the vice-president for the president, and the assistant secretary for the 
secretary, are hereby given full power to sign and execute contracts, 
vouchers, bonds, pay-rolls and all other papers, documents, and in- 
struments necessary to carry this act and all proceedings hereunder 



CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 103 



into full force and effect. Said board shall hold daily sessions for 
the transaction of all business in rooms accessible to the public, to be 
provided by the city council. 

The city council or board of trustees of such city shall provide for 
salaries for said board of local improvements. 

In cities within the terms of this act having a population of more 
than fifty thousand (50,000) and less than one hundred thousand 
(100,000) , by the last preceding census of the United States, or of this 
State, there is hereby created a board of local improvements, consist- 
ing of five members, of which board the commissioner of public works 
shall be the president. The other members of said board shall be the 
superintendent of streets, the superintendent of sewers, the superin- 
tendent of special assessments and the citj' engineer. 

In cities having a population of less than fifty thousand (50,000), 
and in villages and incorporated towns, the board of local improve- 
ments shall consist of the mayor of said city, or the president of such 
village or town, who shall be president of such board, and the public 
engineer and the superintendent of streets of such municipality, 
where such officers shall be provided for by ordinance; but, if at any 
time, no such officers shall be provided for, then the city council or 
the board of trustees, as the case may be, shall by ordinance designate 
two or more members of such body, who shall, with such mayor or 
president of such village or town, until otherwise provided by ordi- 
nance, constitute the members of the board. 

§ 7. All ordinances for local improvement to be paid for wholly 
or in part by special assessment or special taxation shall originate 
with the board of local improvements. Petitions for any such public 
improvement shall be addressed to said board. Said board shall have 
the power to originate a scheme for any local improvement to be paid 
for by special assessment or special tax, either with or without a peti- 
tion, and in either case shall adopt a resolution describing the pro- 
posed improvement, which resolution shall be at once transcribed into 
the records of the board. 

Whenever the proposed improvement will require that private prop- 
erty be taken or damaged, such resolution shall describe the property 
proposed to be taken for that purpose. Said board shall, by the same 
resolution, fix a day and hour for the public consideration thereof, 
which shall not be less than ten days after the adoption of such reso- 
lution. Said board shall also cause an estimate of the costs of such 
improvement (omitting land to be acquired) to be made in writing 
by the engineer of the board (if there be one, if not, then by the 
president) over his signature, which shall be itemized to the satisfac- 
tion of said board, and which shall be made a part of the record of 
such resolution. Notice of the time and place of such public consid- 
eration or hearing shall be sent by mail directed to the person who 
paid the general taxes for the last preceding year on each lot, block, 
tract or parcel of land fronting on the proposed improvement, not 
less than five (5) days prior to the time set for such public hearing. 
Said notice shall contain the substance of the resolution adopted by 



104 CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 



the board and the estimate of the cost of the proposed improvement, 
and a notification that the extent, nature, kind, character and esti- 
mated cost of such proposed improvement may be changed by said 
board at the public consideration thereof, and that if upon such hear- 
ing the board shall deem such improvement desirable, it shall adopt 
a resolution therefor and prepare and submit an ordinance therefor 
as hereinafter provided. 

Provided, however, that in proceedings only for the laying, build- 
ing, constructing or renewing of any sidewalk, water service pipe or 
house drain, no resolution, public hearing or preliminary proceed- 
ings leading up to the same shall be necessary. In such proceedings 
the board may submit to the city council or board of trustees, as the 
case may be, an ordinance, together with its recommendation, and 
the estimated cost of the improvement, as made by the engineer, as 
herein provided, and such proceedings shall have the same force and 
efiPect as though a public hearing had been had thereon. 

§ 8. At the time and place fixed in said notice for the public 
hearing, the said board shall meet and hear the representations of 
any person desiring to be heard on the subject of the necessity for 
the proposed improvement, the nature thereof, or the cost as esti- 
mated. In case any person shall appear to object to the proposed 
improvement or any of the elements thereof, said board shall adopt a 
new resolution abandoning the said proposed scheme, or adhering 
thereto, or changing, altering or modifying the extent, nature, kind, 
character and estimated cost, provided such change shall not increase 
the estimated cost of the improvement to exceed twenty (20) per 
centum of the same, without a further public hearing thereon, as it 
shall consider most desirable; and thereupon, if the said proposed im- 
provement be not abandoned, the said board shall cause an ordinance 
to be prepared therefor, to be submitted to the council or board of 
trustees (as the case may be) . Such ordinance shall prescribe the 
nature, character, locality and description of such improvement, and 
shall provide whether the same shall be made wholly or in part by 
special assessment, or special taxation of contiguous property; and, 
if in part only, shall so state. 

If property is to be taken or damaged for said improvement, such 
ordinance shall describe the same with reasonable certainty. 

In cities of 100,000 inhabitants or over, when a remonstrance peti- 
tion is filed by the owners of a majority of the frontage on the line of 
the proposed improvement with the board of local improvements 
within thirty (30) days after the public hearing thereon, said board 
shall thereupon stay all proceedings therein for one year from said 
date. 

The remonstrance above referred to to be filed with the board 
shall contain the signatures of the owners or legal representatives, 
the description of the projjerty owned or represented, the number of 
feet so owned or represented, and shall be verified by affidavit of one 
or more property owners fronting on the line of the proposed im- 
provement, setting forth that the party making the affidavit is a 



CITIES TOWNS AND VILLAGES. ' 105 



property owner fronting on the proposed improvement, and that the 
parties who signed the same are the owners or legal representatives 
of the property described therein. 

§ 10. Together with the said ordinance and recommendation shall 
be presented to the city council or board of trustees an estimate of 
the cost of such improvement, as originally contemplated, or as 
changed, altered or modified at the public hearing, itemized so far as 
the board of local improvements shall think necessary, over the sig- 
nature of the engineer of the board, if there be one; if not, then of the 
president of said board, who shall certify that, in his opinion, the 
said estimate does not exceed the probable cost of the improvement 
proposed and the lawful expenses attending the same. The recom- 
mendation by said board shall be prima facie evidence presumed to 
be based upon a full compliance with the requirements of the act. 

§ 16. If the amount awarded to any person for property taken or 
damaged for such improvement be greater than the amount assessed 
against the property for such improvement, or if the benefit be 
greater than the damage, in either case the difference only shall be 
collectible of the owner or be paid to him. 

§ 34. Whenever the owners of one-half of the property abutting 
on any street, alley, park or public place, or portion thereof, shall 
petition for any local improvement thereon, the board of local im- 
provements in any city, village or town shall take the steps hereinbe- 
fore required for a hearing thereon, but at such hearing shall con- 
sider only the nature of the proposed improvement and the cost 
thereof, and shall determine, in the manner above provided, the 
nature of the improvement which it will recommend, and shall there- 
upon prepare and transmit to the legislative body a draft of an 
ordinance therefor, together with an estimate of the cost, as above 
described, and shall recommend the passage thereof, which recom- 
mendation shall be prima facie evidence that all the preliminary 
steps required by law have been taken; and thereupon it shall be the 
duty of such legislative body to pass an ordinance for the said im- 
provement and take the necessary steps to have the same carried 
into effect. Whenever any ordinance shall provide only for the 
building or renewing of any sidewalk, the owner of any lot or piece 
of land fronting on such sidewalk shall be allowed forty (40) days 
after the time at which said ordinance shall take effect in which to 
build or renew such sidewalk opposite to his land, and thereby re- 
lieve the same from assessment: Provided, the work so to be done 
shall in all respects conform to the requirements of such ordinance. 

Notice of the passage of such ordinance shall be sent by mail 
within ten days after such passage to the person who paid the taxes 
on said premises for the preceding year, if he or they can be found 
in said county, and also a like notice addressed to the "occupant" of 
said property, if the same be at such time actually occupied, and an 
affidavit of such service shall be filed with the official report of such 
assessment, Such affidavit shall be prima facie evidence of a com- 
pliance with said requirements. 



106 CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 



§ 88. Upon the filing of such petition, the superintendent of 
special assessments, in cities where such officer is provided for by 
this act, otherwise some competent person appointed by the presi- 
dent of the board of local improvements, shall make a true and im- 
partial assessment of the cost of the said improvement upon the peti- 
tioning municipality and the property benefited by such improvement. 

§ 39. It shall be the duty of such officer to estimate what propor- 
tion of the total cost of such improvement will be of benefit to the 
public, and what proportion thereof will be of benefit to the property 
to be benefited, and to apportion the same between the city, village or 
town and such property, so that each shall bear its relative equitable 
proportion; and having found such amounts, to apportion and assess 
the amount so found to be of benefit to the property upon the several 
lots, blocks, tracts and parcels of land in the proportion in which they 
will be severally benefited by such improvement: Provided, that no lot, 
block, tract or parcel of land shall be assessed a greater amount than it 
will be actually benefited; and when the proposed improvement is for 
the construction of a sewer, to investigate and report the district which 
will be benefited by such proposed sewer, describing the same by 
boundaries. 

§ 41. The assessment roll shall contain a list of all the lots, 
blocks, tracts and parcels of land assessed for the proposed improve- 
ment, the amount assessed againt each, the name of the person who 
paid the taxes on each such parcel during the last preceding calendar 
year in which taxes were paid, as ascertained upon investigation by the 
officer making the return, or under his direction, the residence of 
the person so paying the taxes on each such parcel if the same can 
on diligent inquiry be found; in case of assessment in installments, 
the amount of each installment shall also be stated; and the officer 
making such roll shall certify under oath that he verily believes that 
the amounts assessed against the public and each parcel of property 
are just and equitable, and do not exceed the benefit which will in 
each case be derived from said improvement, and that no lot, block, 
tract or parcel of land has been assessed more than its proportionate 
share of the cost of said improvement. Several lots, or parts of land*, 
owned and improved as one parcel, may be assessed as one parcel. 
Unsubdivided tracts- of land may, for the purpose of spreading as- 
sessments for house drains and water service pipes, be divided into 
lots of a frontage of twenty-five (25) feet each; and any fraction of 
frontage then remaining may be assessed as a fractional lot. 

Notice shall be given of the nature of the improvement, of the 
pendency of said proceeding, of the time and place of filing the peti- 
tion therefor, of the time and place of filing the assessment roll there- 
in, and of the time and place at which application will be made for 
confirmation of the assessment, the same to be not less than fifteen 
(15) days after the mailing of such notices. Such notices shall be 
sent by mail postpaid to each of the said persons paying the taxes on 
the respective parcels during the last preceding year in which taxes 



CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 107 



were paid, at his residence as shown in the assessment roll, or, if not 
shown, then to such person so paying the taxes, directed generally to 
the city, village or town in which said improvement is proposed to 
be made. 

Such notice shall state the amount assessed to the person to whom 
the same is directed for the improvement proposed, the total amount 
of the cost of said improvement, and the total amount assessed as 
benefits upon the public. An affidavit shall be filed before the final 
hearing showing a compliance with the requirements of this section, 
and also showing that the affiant (either the officer making the said 
return, or some one acting under his direction,) made a careful ex- 
amination of the collector's books showing the payments of general 
taxes during the last preceding year in which the taxes were paid 
thereon, to ascertain the person or persons who last paid the taxes 
on said respective parcels, and a diligent search for their residences, 
and that the report correctly states the same as ascertained by the 
affiant; and said report and affidavit shall be conclusive evidence, for 
the purpose of said proceeding, of the correctness of the assessment 
roll in said particulars; but in case the said affidavit shall be found 
in any respect wilfully false, the person making the same shall be 
deemed guilty of perjury and subject to the pains and penalties pro- 
vided for such offense by the laws of this State. 

§ 42. It shall be lawful to provide by the ordinance for any local 
improvement, any portion of the cost of which Jis to be defrayed by 
special assessment or special taxation, or by ordinance passed at any 
time before the confirmation of the assessment roll, that the aggre- 
gate amount assessed, and also each individual assessment, be divided 
into installments, not more than ten (10) in number. In all cases 
such division shall be so made that all installments shall be equal in 
amount, except that all fractional amounts shall be added to the first 
installment, so as to leave the remaining installments of the aggre- 
gate equal in amount and each a multiple of one hundred dollars 
($100). The first installment shall be due and payable on the 
second day of January next after the completion and acceptance of 
the work as certified by the board of local improvements to the officer 
authorized to collect the assessments, and the second installment one 
(I) year thereafter, and so on annually until all installments are 
paid. 

All installments, except the first, shall bear interest as hereinafter 
provided until paid, at the rate of five (5) per centum per annum. 

Interest on assessments shall begin to run from the date of the 
first voucher issued on account of work done, as certified by said 
board of local improvements to the city council or board of trustees 
(as the case may be) and to the clerk of the court in which such as- 
sessment was confirmed. 

The interest on each installment, except the first, shall be payable 
as follows: On the second day of January next succeeding the date 
of said completion and acceptance of the work certified as aforesaid, 
the interest accrued up to that time on all unpaid installments shall 



108 CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 



be due and payable and be collected with the installment, and there- 
after the interest on all unpaid installments, then payable, shall be 
payable annually, and be due and payable at the same time as the 
installments maturing in such year and be collected therewith. In 
all cases it shall be the duty of the municipal collectors, as the case 
may be, whenever payment is made of any installment, to collect in- 
terest thereon up to the date of such payment, whether such pay- 
ment be made at or after maturity. 

Any person may at any time pay the whole assessment against any 
lot, piece or parcel of land, or any installment thereof, with interest 
as provided herein up to the date of payment. 

§ 44. Petitioner shall, in addition to other notices hereinbefore 
provided for, cause at least fifteen ( 15) days' notice to be given prior 
to the time at which confirmation of said assessment shall be sought 
by posting notices in at least four public places in such city or vil- 
lage, all of which shall be in the neighborhood of such proposed im- 
provement, and by publishing the same at least five successive days 
in some daily newspaper of said city, village or town; or, if no daily 
newspaper is published in such city, village or town, and a weekly 
paper is published therein, then at least once in each week for two 
successive weeks in some weekly newspaper; or if no daily nor 
weekly newspaper is published in such city, village or town, then at 
least once in each week for two successive weeks in some other news- 
paper published in the county in which said city, village or town is 
situated. Where other corporate authorities having power to make 
use of the provisions of this act shall do so, the notice may be pub- 
lished in any daily or weekly newspaper in the county in which such 
proceeding shall be had. The notice shall be over the name of the 
officer levying such assessment, and be substantially as follows: 

"Special Assessment Notice." 

"Notice is hereby given to all persons interested that the city coun- 
cil (or board of trustees, or other corporate authorities, as the case 

may be) of having ordered that (here insert 

a brief description of the nature of the improvement) , the ordinance 

for the same being on file in the office of the clerk, 

having applied to the court of county for 

an assessment of the costs of said improvement, according to bene- 
fits, and an assessment therefor having been made and returned to 

said court, the final hearing thereon will be had on the day 

of A. D. 190. ., or as soon thereafter as the business of the 

court will permit. All persons desiring may file objections in said 
court before said day, and may appear on the hearing and make their 
defense." 

(Here give date). 



Where the assessment is payable in installments, the number of 
installments and the rate of interest shall also be stated. 



CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 109 



§ 56. The judgments of the court shall be final as to all the issues 
involved, and the proceedings in said cause shall be subject to review 
by appeal or writ of error as hereinafter provided, and not otherwise: 
Provided, however, that by mutual consent the same may be vacated 
or modified at a subsequent term, except as hereinafter provided. 

Such judgmentb shall have the effect of several judgments as to 
each tract or parcel of land assessed, and no appeal from any such 
judgment or writ of error shall invalidate or delay the judgments, 
except as to the property concerning which the appeal or writ of error 
is taken. Such judgments shall be a lien upon the property assessed 
from the date thereof to the same extent and of equal force and val- 
idity as a lien for the general taxes, for a period of five years, if such 
assessment is payable in a single sam; if payable by installments, 
then until five years after the last installment comes due. Nothing 
in this section contained shall interfere with the right of the peti- 
tioner to dismiss its proceedings, and for that purpose to vacate such 
judgment at its election at any time before commencing the actual 
collection of such assessment, and no judgment entered in such pro- 
ceeding so dismissed and vacated shall be a bar to another like or 
different improvement: Provided, that after the contract for the 
work shall have been entered into, or the bonds mentioned in this act 
issued, no judgment shall be vacated or modified or any petition dis- 
missed at a term subsequent to that at which the judgment was ren- 
dered, nor the collection of the assessment be in any way stayed or 
delayed by the coancil or board of trustees, or board of local improve- 
ments, or any officer of the municipality, without the consent of the 
contractor and bondholder. 

§ 59. Supplemental Assessments]. If in any case the first assess- 
ment prove insufficient, a second may be made in the same manner, 
as nearly as may be, and so on until sufficient moneys shall have been 
realized to pay for such public improvement. It shall be no objec- 
tion to such assessment that the prior assessment has been levied, 
adjudicated and collected, unless it shall appear that in such prior 
cause, upon proper issue made, it was specially found, in terms, that 
the property objected for would be benefited by said improvement 
no more than the amount assessed against it in such prior proceed- 
ings. If too large a sum shall at any time be raised, the excess shall 
be refunded ratably to those against whom the assessment was made: 
Provided, however, the petitioner, in case it so elects, may dismiss 
the petition and vacate the judgment of confirmation, either at or 
after the term at which the judgment is rendered, and begin new pro- 
ceedings for the same or a different improvement, as provided in sec- 
tion 56 as herein amended. 

§ 61. Within thirty (30) days after the filing of the report of the 
cost of the work as provided in section eighty-four of this act, as 
herein amended, the clerk of the court in which such judgment is 
rendered shall certify the assessment roll and judgment, as amended 
or reduced, to the officer of such city, village or town, authorized to 
collect such special assessment; or, if there has been an appeal or 



110 CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 



writ of error taken on any part of such judgment, then he shall cer- 
tify such part of the judgment as is not included in such appeal or 
writ of error, and such certification shall be tiled by the officer re- 
ceiving the same in his office. With such assessment roll and judg- 
ment the clerk of such court shall also issue a warrant for the collec- 
tion of such assessment. The court shall have power to recall such 
warrants as to all or any of the property affected at any time before 
payment or sale, in case the proceedings be abandoned by the pe- 
titioner or the judgment be vacated or modified in a material respect 
as hereinbefore provided, but not otherwise. 

§ 62. Should an appeal or writ of error be taken on any part of 
such judgment, and the board elect to proceed with the improve- 
ment, notwithstanding such an appeal, as provided for in section 
seventy-five (75) of this act, the clerk shall certify such appealed 
portion, from time to time, in the manner above mentioned, as the 
judgment is rendered thereon, and the warrant accompanying such 
certificate in each case shall be authority for the collection of so much 
of such assessment as shall be included in the portion of the roll 
thereto attached. The warrant in all cases of assessment, under this 
act, shall contain a copy of such certificate of the judgment describ- 
ing lots, blocks, tracts and parcels of land assessed so far as they 
shall be contained in the portion of the roll so certified, and the re- 
spective amount assessed on each lot, block, tract or parcel of land, 
and shall be delivered to the officer authorized to collect such special 
assessment. The collector having a warrant for any assessment levied 
to be paid by installments may receive any or all of the installments 
of such assessment, but if in part only, then in their order. 

§ 65. It shall be the duty of the collector, on or before the first 
day of April in each year, to make a report in writing to the general 
officer of the county authorized or to be designated by the general 
revenue laws of this State to apply for judgment and sell lands for 
taxes due the county and State of all the lands, town lots and 
real property on which he shall be unable to collect special assess- 
ments, or installments thereof matured and payable, or interest 
thereon, or interest due to the preceding January second on install- 
ments not yet matured on all warrants in his hands, with the amount 
of such delinquent special assessment or installments and interest 
together with his warrants; or, in case of an assessment levied to be 
paid by installments, with a brief description of the nature of the 
warrant or warrants received by him authorizing the collection 
thereof, which report shall be accompanied with the oath of the col- 
lector that the list is a correct return and report of the land, town lots 
and real property on which the special assessment (or special tax 

levied by the authority of the city of or town or village 

of as the case may be), or installments thereof, or inter- 
est, remaining due and unpaid; that he is unable to collect the same, 
or any part thereof, and that he has given the notice required b}^ law 
that such warrants have been received by him for collection. 

§ 66. Report to be evidence.] Said report, when so made, shall 
hQ prima facie evidence that all the forms and requirements of the 



CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. Ill 



law in relation to the making of said return have been complied 
with, and that the special assessments, or special taxes, or the ma- 
tured installments thereof, and the interest thereon, and the interest 
accrued on installments not yet matured, mentioned in said report, 
are due and unpaid, and upon the application for judgment of sale 
upon such assessment or matured installments thereof, or the interest 
thereon, or the interest accrued on installments not yet matured, no 
defense or objection shall be made or heard which might have been 
interposed in the proceeding for the making of such assessment, or 
the application for the confirmation thereof, and no errors in the pro- 
ceeding to confirm, not affecting the power of the court to entertain 
and consider the petition therefor, shall be deemed a defense to the 
application herein provided for. 

When such application is made for judgment of sale on an install- 
ment only of an assessment payable by installments, all questions 
affecting the jurisdiction of the court to enter the judgment of con- 
firmation and the validity of the proceedings shall be raised and de- 
termined on the first of such applications. On application for 
judgment of sale on any subsequent installment, no defense, except 
as to the legality of the pending proceeding, the amount to be paid, 
or actual payment, shall be made or heard. And it shall be no de- 
fense to the application for judgment on any assessment or any in- 
stallment thereof that the work done under any ordinance for an 
improvement does not conform to the requirements of such ordinance, 
if it shall appear that the said work has been accepted by or under 
the direction of the board of local improvements. , And the voluntary 
payment by the owner or his agent of any installment of any assess- 
ment levied on any lot, block, tract or parcel of land, shall be deemed 
and held in law to be an assent to the confirmation of the assessment 
roll, and to be held to release and waive any and. all right of such 
owner to enter objections to the application for judgment of sale and 
order for sale. The judgment of sale on any installment shall in- 
clude all interest accrued on said installment up to the date of said 
judgment of sale, and also the annual interest due as returned delin- 
quent by the municipal collector on any installment or installments 
not matured; and all judgments of sale for a matured installment 
shall bear interest on the amount of the principal of said matured 
Installment to the date of payment or sale. 

§ 67. When such general officer shall receive the report above 
provided for, he shall proceed to obtain judgment against said lots 
and parcel of land and property for said special assessments and 
said special taxes, or installments thereof, and interest remaining 
due and unpaid, in the same manner as is or may be by law provided 
for obtaining judgment against lands for taxes due and unpaid the 
county or State; and shall in the same manner proceed to sell the 
same for the said special assessments, special taxes, or installments 
thereof, and interest remaining due and unpaid, In obtaining 
such judgments and making such sale, the said officer shall be gov- 
erned by the general revenue law of the State, except when other- 
wise provided herein. No application for judgment against lands 



112 CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 



for unpaid special taxes or special assessments shall be made at a 
time different from the annual application for judgment against 
lands upon which general taxes remain due and unpaid. The appli- 
cation for judgment upon delinquent special assessments or special 
taxes in each year shall include only such special assessments, spe- 
cial taxes, or installments thereof, and interest as shall have been re- 
turned as delinquent to the county collector on or before the first 
day of April in the year in which said application is made: Pro- 
vided, that such judgment of sale shall include interest on matured 
installments up to the date of such judgment, as herein provided. 

§ 73. No person or persons or bodies corporate, taking any con- 
tracts from the city, village or town, and agreeing to be paid out of 
special assessments or special taxes, shall have any claim or lien upon 
the city, village or town in any event, except from the collection of 
special assessments or special taxes made or to be made for the work 
contracted for, but the municipality shall cause collections and pay- 
ments to be made with all reasonable diligence. And in such case, 
if it shall appear that such assessment or tax can not be levied nor 
collected, the municipality shall not, nevertheless, be in any way 
liable to such contractor or contractors in case of failure to collect 
the same, but shall, so far as it can legally do so, with all reasonable 
diligence cause a valid assessment or assessments, special tax or 
taxes, to be levied and collected to defray the cost of said work until 
all contractors shall be fully paid, and any contractor shall be en- 
titled to summary relief of mandamus or injunction to enforce the 
provisions hereof.

assessment warrant number, and with the money received there- 
under.

to be paid wholly or in part by special assessment or special tax, and 
any work or other public improvements when the expense thereof 
shall exceed five hundred dollars ($500), shall be let to the lowest 
responsible bidder in the manner herein prescribed, such contracts 
to be approved by the president of the board of local improvements. 

In case of any work in which it is estimated that the work will not 
cost more than five hundred dollars ($500), if after receiving bids it 
shall appear to said board of local improvements that said work can 
be performed better and cheaper by the city, town or village, or the 
authorities thereof, the authorities of the city, town or village shall 
perform said work and employ the necessary help therefor, and the 
cost of said work by said city, town or village, or the authorities 
thereof, shall in no case be more than the lowest bid received. 

§ 75. When Contract Shall Be Let.] Within ninety (90) days 
after the term of court at which judgment of confirmation of any spe- 
cial assessment or special tax, levied in pursuance of this act, has 
been entered, if there be no appeal perfected, or other stay of pro- 
ceedings by a court having jurisdiction, or in case the judgment for 
the condemnation of any property for any such improvement, or the 



CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 113 



judgment of confirmation as to any property be appealed from, then, 
if the petitioner shall file in such cause a written election to proceed 
with the work, notwithstanding such appeal or other stay, steps shall 
be taken to let the contract for such work in the manner herein pro- 
vided. If the judgment of condemnation or of confirmation of the 
special tax or special assessment levied for such work be appealed 
from, or stayed by a supersedeas or other order of a court - having 
jurisdiction, and the petitioner file no such election, then the steps 
herein provided for the letting of the contract for such work shall be 
taken within fifteen (15) days after the final determination of said 
appeal or writ of error, or the determination of such stay, unless the 
proceeding be abandoned as herein provided. 

§ 76. Notice' shall be given by advertisement in some newspaper, 
adopted for that purpose, by the board of local improvements by an 
order entered in their records, that bids will be received for the con- 
struction of such improvement, either as a whole or in such sections 
as the board shall specify in its notice, in accordance with the ordi- 
nance therefor; which notice shall state the time of opening such 
bids (not more than fifteen (15) nor less than ten (10) days there- 
after), and shall further state where the specifications for such im- 
provements are to be found, and whether the contractors are to be 
paid in cash or in bonds, and if in bonds, then the rate of interest 
such vouchers or bonds shall draw. If no newspaper be published in 
said municipality, then four such notices shall be posted, all of which 
shall be in the vicinity of the proposed improvement. Proposals or 
bids may be made either for such work as a whole or for such speci- 
fied sections thereof. All proposals or bids offered shall be accom- 
panied by cash or by a check payable to the order of the president of 
the board of local improvements in his official capacity, certified by 
a responsible bank, for an amount which shall not be less than ten 
(10) per centum of the aggregate of the proposal. Said proposals 
or bids shall be delivered to the board of local improvements, and 
said board shall, in open session, at the time and place fixed in said 
notice, examine and publicly declare the same: Provided, however, 
that no proposals nor bids shall be considered unless accompanied 
by such check or cash. 

§ 79. Notice of such award of contract shall be published for two 
(2) days in a daily newspaper published and [and] circulated in said 
city, village or town, designated by the said board of local improve- 
ments,*by general order for that purpose, duly entered in its records. 
Or where there is no daily newspaper in said city or village, by one 
(1) insertion of the same in a semi- weekly or weekly newspaper so 
published and circulated, and so designated: Provided, however, 
that in case there is no newspaper printed or published in such city, 
village or town, then four (4) notices of such award shall be posted, 
all of which shall be in the vicinity of the proposed improvement. 

§ 81. If such original bidder fails or refuses for fifteen (15) days 
after the first posting or publication of the notice of award, or in 
case a contract be made with the owners, and default by them, then, 

—8 



114 CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 



within ten (10) days after notice that such owners are in default, to 
enter into a contract, then said board of local improvements, without 
further proceedings, shall again advertise for proposals or bids, as in 
the first instance, and award the contract for said work to the then 
regular lowest bidder. The bids of all persons, and the election of 
all owners, as aforesaid, who have failed to enter into the contract as 
herein provided, shall be rejected in any bidding or election subse- 
quent to the first for the same work. 

§ 83. The board of local improvements in cities of one hundred 
thousand (100,000) inhabitants and over, according to the last census 
as hereinbefore provided, may appoint an attorney for the board who 
shall have charge, under its direction and control, of all legal matters 
pertaining to the board of local improvements, the confirmation of 
special assessments and the collection of the same. It may also ap- 
point an engineer for the board, and such assistant attorneys, engin- 
eers, clerks, inspectors, etc., etc., as may be necessary to carry into 
effect the purposes of this act. 

The board is hereby authorized to make, or cause to be made, the 
written contracts, and receive all bonds authorized by this act, and 
to do any other act, expressed or implied, that pertains to the execution 
of the work provided for by such ordinace or ordinances, and shall fix 
the time for the commencement of the work thereunder and for the 
completion of the work under all contracts entered into by it, which 
work shall be prosecuted with diligence thereafter to completion, and 
said board may extend the time so fixed from time to time as they may 
think best for the public good. The work to be done pursuant to 
such contracts must in all cases be done under the direction and to 
the satisfaction of the board of local improvements, and all contracts 
made therefor must contain a provision to that effect, and also ex- 
press notice that in no case, except as otherwise provided in the 
ordinance, or the judgment of the court, will said board, or munici- 
pality, except as herein otherwise provided, or any officer thereof, be 
liable for any portion of the expenses, nor for any delinquency of 
persons or property assessed. 

The acceptance by the said board of any improvement shall be 
conclusive in the proceeding to make said assessment, and in all pro- 
ceedings to collect the same, or installments thereof, on all persons 
and property assessed therefor, that the work has been performed 
substantially according to the requirements of the ordinance? there- 
for, but if any property owner be injured by any failure so to con- 
struct such improvement, or suffer any pecuniary loss thereby, he 
may recover the amount of such injury in an action on the case 
against the municipality making said improvement. Provided, Jww- 
ever, that such action be commenced within one year from the date 
of the acceptance of the work by the board of local improvements. 

§ 84. Within thirty days after the final completion and accept- 
ance of the work, as hereinbefore provided, the board of local im- 
provements shall cause the cost thereof to be certified, in writing, to 
the court in which said assessment was confirmed, together with an 
amount estimated by the board to be required to paj'^ the accruing 



CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 115 



interest on bonds or vouchers issued to anticipate collection, and 
thereupon, if the total amount assessed for said improvement upon 
the public and private property exceeds the cost of the same, all of 
said excess excepting the amount required to pay such interest as 
herein provided for, shall be abated and the judgment reduced pro- 
portionately to the public and private property owners and shall be 
credited pro rata upon the respective assessments for said improve- 
ments under direction of the court, and, in case the assessment is 
collectible in installments, such reduction shall be made so that all 
installments shall be equal in amount, except that all fractional 
amounts shall be added to the first installment so as to leave the re- 
maining installments in the aggregate equal in amount and each a 
multiple of one hundred dollars; the intent and meaning hereof be- 
ing that no property owner shall be required to pay to the collector 
a greater amount than his proportionate share of the cost of said 
work and of the interest that may accrue thereon. 

§ 86. For the purpose of anticipating the collection of the second 
and succeeding installments provided for in this act, it shall be law- 
ful for such city, village or town to issue bonds, payable out of said 
installments, bearing interest at the rate of five per centum per an- 
num, payable annually and signed by such officers as may be by ordi- 
nance prescribed; said bonds shall be issued in sums of one hundred 
dollars, or some multiple thereof, and shall be dated and draw inter- 
est from the date of the issuing of the same. Each bond shall state 
on its face out of which installment it is payable, and shall state, by 
number or other designation, the assessment to which such install- 
ment belongs. The principal of such bonds shall not exceed, in the 
aggregate, the amount of such deferred installments, and shall be 
divided into as many series as there are deferred installments: Pro- 
vided, nothing herein contained shall be construed to prevent the 
payment of any voucher or bond out of an installment having a sur- 
plus to its credit, other than the one against which the same is issued; 
the intent and meaning thereof being that in case from any cause 
the installment against which such bond or voucher is drawn has not 
sufficient money to the credit thereof to pay the same, the entire 
amount of the assessment or any installment thereof may be applied 
toward the payment of any such vouchers or bonds issued against the 
assessment. Each series shall become due at some time in the year 
in which the corresponding installment will mature, such date to con- 
form, as nearly as may be, to the time when such installment will be 
actually collected, such time to be estimated and determined by the 
municipal officers issuing such bonds: Provided, also, that it shall 
he lawful to provide in the case of any one or more of the bonds in 
any series, that such bond or bonds shall not become due until some 
subsequent date, not later than the thirty-first day of December next 



116 CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 



succeeding the January in which the installment against which such 
series is issued shall become due and payable. Such bonds may be

Which said bond may have coupons attached to represent the inter- 
est to accrue thereon. 

§ 88. Payment for any improvement done or performed under the 
provisions of this act, to be paid for out of any special assessment or 
special tax levied in installments, as herein provided, may be made in 
the bonds herein provided for; and the first installment thereof shall 
be paid to the person or persons entitled thereto on the contract for 
said work: Provided, however, that in cities, towns and villages hav- 
ing a population of less than one hundred thousand, where the ordi- 
nance for the improvement provides for the collection of costs, such 
costs shall be first paid out of said first installment. If such first in- 
stallment is not collected when payments fall due, vouchers therefor 
may be issued, payable out of the first installment when collected. 
Such vouchers shall bear no interest and shall be paid from said in- 
stallment when collected. 

§ 90. No person or persons accepting the vouchers or bonds as 
provided herein shall have any claim or lien upon the city, town or 
village in any event for the payment of such vouchers or bonds 
or the interest thereon, except from the collections of the assessment 
against which said vouchers or bonds are issued, but the munici- 
pality shall not, nevertheless, be in any way liable to the holders of 
said vouchers or bonds in case of failure to collect the same, but shall, 
with all reasonable diligence, so far as it can legally do so, cause a 
valid special assessment or assessments, special tax or taxes, as the

case may be, to be levied and collected, to pay said bonds and vouch- 
ers, until all bonds and vouchers shall be fully paid. Any holder of 
vouchers or bonds, or their assigns, shall be entitled to summary, 
relief by way of mandamus or injunction to enforce the provisions 
hereof. 

§ 92. The board of local improvements, before the crediting of 
the excess as provided for in section eighty-four, as herein amended, 
shall determine an estimated amount deemed as sufficient to make 
up any probable deficiency of interest, by which from any -cause, 
collections of interest may prove insufficient to meet the interest to 
be paid on said bonds until they mature as hereinbefore provided. 
Said estimate shall be deducted out of said installments as an item 
of expense before crediting rebates of excess as herein directed and 
shall be used for no other purpose than to make up such deficiency 
until the bonds are fully paid, both principal and interest. 

§ 93. If, upon final settlement with the contractor for any im- 
provement and full payment of all vouchers or bonds, issued on 
account of such contract, there shall be any surplus remaining in 
such special assessment or special tax above the payments aforesaid, 
and above the amount necessary for the payment of interest on such 
vouchers or bonds, as above provided, it shall be the duty of the 
proper authorities of such city, incorporated town or village to at once 
cause a rebate to be declared upon each lot, block, tract or parcel of 
land assessed of its pro rata proportion of such surplus. The board 
of local improvements shall cause to be kept and exhibited publicly 
in its office, an index of all warrants upon which rebates are due and 
payable, and upon proper proofs, the same shall be repaid to the per- 
son entitled thereto. 

§ 94. The cost and expenses of maintaining the board of local 
improvements herein authorized, of paying the salaries of the mem- 
bers of said board, and the expense of making and levying special 
assessments or special taxes and of letting and executing contracts; 
and also the entire cost and expense attending the making and re- 
turn of the assessment rolls and the necessary estimates, examina- 
tions, advertisements, etc., etc., connected with the proceedings 
herein provided for, including the court costs, including the fees to 
commissioners in condemnation proceedings, which are to be taxed as 
above provided, shall be paid by the city, village or town out of its 
general fund: Provided, however, that in cities, towns or villages of 
this State having a population of less than one hundred thousand by 
the last preceding census of the United States, or of this State, the 
city, village or town, as the case may be, may in and by the ordinance 
providing for the assessment prescribed, provide that a certain sum, 
not to exceed six per centum of the amount of such assessment, shall 
be applied toward the payment of the aforesaid and other costs 
|of ] making and collecting such assessment. 

§ 96. Writs of errror from the Supreme Court of this State may 
issue upon any such judgment upon the application of owners or par- 
ties interested in the property affected thereby, as shown by the

jection to the confirmation, if any, and prior to the first day of June 
following the entry of such judgement: Provided, that if the war- 
rant for collection as to any parcel be not returned delinquent in any 
year before April 1st, a writ of error as to such parcel may be sued 
out at any time before June 1st in the year in which the same is so 
returned or certified: And, provided further , that in every case there 
shall be filed with the clerk of the Supreme Court, with the applica- 
tion for such writ, an affidavit by the plaintiff in error or his agent 
setting forth the time when such warrant, as to such property, was 
returned delinquent or so certified; and further setting forth that the 
person to whom such notice of the filing of assessment roll as to 
such property, as shown by the record, did not receive the same, or 
otherwise learn of the pendency of the proceedings for the confirma- 
tion of said assessment until less than ten days before the entry of 
default against his said property in the court below. 

§ 99. All acts, and parts of acts, in conflict with this act are 
hereby repealed. 

Provided, that the laws subsisting at the time of the taking effect 
of the local improvement act of June 14, 1897, shall continue to ap- 
ply to all proceedings for the condemnation of lands, or the confirma- 
tion of special assessments or special taxes for local improvements, 
which were pending in any court in this State at the time of the 
taking effect of the local improvement act of June 14, 1897, and 
to all proceedings for the collection of any deficiency under past 
levies already made under any laws already existing at the time of 
the taking effect of the local improvement act of June 14, 1897: and 
also to all proceedings for new assessments made in lieu of others 
annulled before the act concerning local improvements of Jane 14, 
1897, took effect, by order of some court. When any installment of 
an assessment confirmed under prior acts shall mature, proceedings 
to return the same delinquent, and to collect the same, shall conform 
to the provisions of this act. 

Where proceedings for local improvements to be made by special 
tax or special assessment shall have been instituted when this act 
shall take effect, and where the assessment provided for therein 
has not been confirmed by any court, all future proceedings there- 
under shall be as herein provided, with the same effect as if such 
proceedings had been commenced in accordance with the provisions 
herein provided: Provided, that nothing in this act shall be con- 
strued to repeal an act entitled, "An act to provide additional means

Thereupon said judge of the county court shall cause to be sub- 
mitted to the voters of such village or incorporated town, at an elec-

in such village or incorporated town shall have the right to cast a 
ballot at such election "for village organization under the general 
law" or "against village organization under the general law" of the 
territory proposed to be organized as a village under this act. 

If the boundaries of the territory proposed to be organized into a 
village under this act intersect election precincts, then, in those pre- 
cincts so intersected, an additional ballot box shall be provided, into 
which shall be deposited only the ballots of the voters residing 
within the limits of the territory so sought to be organized into a

An Act in relation to cou7'ts of record in cities. 

Section 1. Be it enacted hy the People of the State of Illinois, 
represented in the General Assembly: Style of Court — Jurisdic- 
tion,] The several courts of record now existing in and for cities, 
and such as may hereafter be established in and for any city in this 
State, shall severally be styled "The city court of (name of city) ," 
and shall have concurrent jurisdiction with the circuit courts within 
the city in which the same may be in all civil cases and in all crim- 
inal cases arising in said city, and in appeals from justices of the 
peace in said city; and the course of procedure and practice in such 
courts shall be the same as in the circuit courts, so far as may be. 

§ 2. Seal.] Such courts shall have a seal, and may, from time to 
time, as may be necessary, renew the same; the expense of such seal, 
and renewing the same, shall be paid by the city in which such court 
is or may be established. 

§ 8. Place of Holding.] Such court shall be held at such place 
in said city as may be provided by the corporate authorities thereof; 
but if such place shall become unfit, or if no place shall be provided 
by such authorities, the court may, by an order to be entered of 
record, adjourn to or convene at a suitable place for the holding of a

court within said city, and at such place may hold said court until a 
suitable place therefor be furnished by such corporate authorities,

niture necessary to the keeping of a record of the proceedings of such 
court, and the transaction of the business thereof, shall be furnished

of the city. 

§ 5. Election and Qualification of Judges — Powers — Vacancy.] 
The judges of such courts respectively shall be elected by the quali- 
fied voters of such city in the same manner that the city officers of 
such city are elected, but not at the same time, and shall hold their 
offices for the term of four years and until their successors are 
elected and qualified. They shall qualify and be commissioned in 
the same manner, be vested with the same powers and perform the 
same duties as circuit judges, and have the right to appoint a court 
reporter on the same terms as the circuit court, and shall be styled 
"judge of the city court of (name of city)." Vacancies in such office 
shall be filled for the unexpired term at a special election to be called 
and held by the same authority and in the same manner that other 
city elections may be held, where such unexpired term exceeds one 
year; but where the same does not exceed one year, such vacancy 
shall be filled by appointment by the Governor. 

§ 6. Exchange, Etc.] Such judges may, with like privileges as 
the judges of circuit and county courts, interchange with each other, 
and with the judges of circuit, superior, county and probate courts, 
and may hold court for each other, and for judges of circuit, superior, 
county and probate courts, and perform each others' duties, and the 
duties of judges of circuit, superior, county and probate courts, 
when thej' find it necessary or convenient. 

§ 7. Clerks.] There shall be elected, in like manner as judges 
are elected, for each of such courts, a clerk, who shall hold his office 
for a term of four years and until his successor shall be elected and 
qualified. He shall be commissioned, have the same powers, perform 
the same duties, be subject to the same liabilities, and be entitled to 
like fees as are now, or may hereafter, from time to time, be provided 
by law in regard to circuit clerks, in the county in which said city 
may be situated. Vacancies in such offices shall be filled, for the un- 
expired term, at a special election to be called and held by the same 
authority and in the same manner that other city elections may be 
held, where such unexpired term exceeds one year; but where the 
same does not exceed one year, such vacancy shall be filled by ap- 
pointment by the judge of the court: Provided, that a clerk, pro 
tempore, may be appointed by the judge thereof when necessary. 

§ 8. Duties of Sheriff — State's Attorney.] The sheriff and State's 
attorney of the county in which such city may be situated shall each 
perform the same duties in said court, and in respect thereto, and the 
process thereof, and have the same power, be subject to the same lia- 
bilities and penalties, and be entitled to the same fees as in the cir- 
cuit court of such county; and the sheriff shall appoint one or more

deputies for such court, for the convenience of the business therein, 
who shall reside in the city where such court is established, and the 
judge of such court shall have power to appoint a State's attorney, 
pro tempore, in any of the cases where the circuit court or the judge 
thereof may appoint. 

§ 9. Master in Chancery.] A master in chancery for such court 
shall be appointed by the judge thereof, who shall hold his office for 
the same time, and qualify in the same manner, be subject to the 
same liabilities, have the same powers, perform the same duties, and 
be entitled to the same fees and compensation with respect, to said 
court and matters therein as other masters in chancery. 

§ 10. Terms of Court. ] There shall be two or more regular terms 
of court in each year, to be held at such times as may be fixed by an 
order of the court from time to time, and entered of record, which 
order shall be published in some newspaper published in the city at 
least forty days before holding the first term of court under the same; 
and said order shall not be changed subsequently, except by an order 
of court entered of record at the term preceding said change, and 
published in like manner. Special terms may be called and held in 
the same manner and with like effect as special terms of the circuit 
court, and subject to the same limitations: Provided, that in the 
city of Chicago, should such a court be established therein, there 
shall be held a term of such court every month in the year, commenc- 
ing upon the first Monday of each month, and no order of court or 
publication shall be necessary in order to hold such terms.

journment of such courts upon the non-attendance of a judge thereof, 
as are, or may be provided by law in regard to circuit courts, shall 
apply to such courts; and the said city courts, and the judges thereof , 
shall have the same power, with respect to adjournments, as the circuit 
courts and the judges thereof, now, or hereafter may, have by law, and 
the adjournments of a term in such courts shall have the like effect 
of an adjournment in the circuit courts. 

§ 12. Appeals shall be taken in the first instance from the judg- 
ment of the justices of the peace or police magistrates in the city to 
the city court. Writs of certiorari may issue to remove cause from 
before such officers to the city court, there to be heard and determined 
in like manner as in the circuit court. 

§ 13. Recognizance — City Prison — SherifP to be the Keeper — 
Costs.] All recognizances taken by any justice of the peace, police 
magistrate or other officer of the city, in criminal cases, when the of- 
fense is committed in the city, shall be made returnable to the city 
court of such city; and in all such cases the defendant may be con- 
fined in a city prison if the same be provided for that purpose by 
such city. The sheriff of the county shall be the keeper, and have 
the custody of sucli prisoners; and the cost of feeding and keeping 
such prisoners shall be paid out of the county treasury on the certi- 
ficate of the sheriff, verified by his affidavit: Provided, that in cities 
of over one hundred thousand (100,000) population recognizances 
may be returnable to any criminal court in said city.

such court.

force, be of the same effect, and shall be executed and enforced in 
the same manner as judgments, orders and decrees of circuit courts;

county shall provide and keep in his office, for each city court in his 
county, a well bound book, or books, for entering therein an alpha-

courts, as is now required by law for docketing judgments and de- 
crees rendered in the circuit court; and shall, forthwith, after the 
filing of any such transcript, enter the same therein, together with

140 COURTS. 



§ 21. Courts — How Established and Abolished.] A city court, 
consisting of one or more judges, not exceeding five, and not exceed- 
ing one judge for every fifty thousand inhabitants, may be organized 
and established under this act in any city which contains at least

shall adopt an ordinance or a resolution to submit the question 
whether such court shall be established consisting of one or more 
judges, not exceeding five, as may be specified in such ordinance or 
resolution, to the qualified voters of such city, and two-thirds of the 
votes cast at such election shall be in favor of the establishment of 
such court. Where such court is established with more than one judge, 
each judge may hold a separate branch thereof at the same time, and 
when holding such separate branch, each judge may exercise all the 
powers vested in such court. Such elections shall be held and con- 
ducted, the returns thereof made and canvassed, and the result 
declared in the same manner as other city elections. To discontinue 
and disestablish any such court, precisely the same mode of proced- 
ure shall be requisite and necessary, and be resorted to as for the 
organization of such court; save that the discontinuance and dis- 
establishment shall not take effect until at the expiration of the term

tinuance and disestablishment of any such court, the clerk thereof

county in which such city court is situated all records, judgment 
and processes in possession of himself or any other officer of said 
court, and the circuit court shall thereupon acquire and be vested 
with jurisdiction in the matters to which said records, judgments or 
process relate, and may be dealt with as original records of such cir- 
cuit court: Provided, it shall be lawful for the city council in any 
city where a city court has been established under this act, and there 
is no judge or clerk of such court residing within such city, and such 
court has ceased to do business for two years or more, to pass an or- 
dinance or resolution abolishing such court, and authorize the city 
clerk of such city to transfer and deliver the records; judgments and 
process of such court to the circuit court of the county in which such 
court is situated, in like manner and with like effect as if such had 
been transferred by the clerk of such city court. 

§ 22. Election of Judge and Clerk.] Whenever the establish- 
ment of a city court shall be authorized as provided in the foregoing 
section, it shall be the duty of the corporate authorities to order an 
election for judge and clerk; and when the judge and clerk shall be 
duly elected, qualified and commissioned, such court shall be deemed 
organized and established according to law. 

§ 23. The judges of said court shall be allowed and receive as an 
annual salary in lieu of all other fees, perquisites or benefits what- 
soever in cities having a population not exceeding five thousand 
(5,000) inhabitants, the sum of five hundred dollars ($500), to be paid 
out of the city treasury; and in cities having more than five thousand 
and less than eight thousand inhabitants, the sum of fifteen hundred

he known as section twenty-two {22). 

Section 1. Be it enacted hy the People of the State of Illinois, 
represented in the General Assembly: That sections one (1), 
seven (7j, nine (9), ten (10) and thirteen (13) of an act entitled, 
"An act to regulate the treatment and control of dependent, neglected 
and delinquent children," approved April 21, 1889, [1899], be 
amended to read as follows: 

§ 1. Definition.] This act shall apply only to children under the

institution, or any training school for boys or industrial school for 
girls, or some institution incorporated under the laws of this State, 
except as provided in sections twelve (12) and eighteen (18). For 
the purpose of this act the words "dependent child" and "neglected

less or abandoned; or dependent upon the public for support; or has 
not proper parental care or guardianship; or who habitually begs or 
receives alms; or who is found living in any house of ill fame or with 
any vicious or disreputable persons, or whose home, by reason of

begging, peddling or selling any article, or singing or playing any 
musical instrument upon the street, or giving any public entertain- 
ment, or who accompanies or is used in aid of any person so doing. 
The words "delinquent child" shall include any child under the age 
of sixteen (16) years who violates any law of this State or any city 
or village ordinance; or who is incorrigible; or who knowingly associ- 
ates with thieves, vicious or immoral persons; or who is growing up in

ceive it, embracing in its objects the purpose of caring or obtaining 
homes for dependent or neglected children, which association shall

the health or condition of the child shall require it, cause the child 
to be placed in a public hospital or institution for treatment or special 
care, or in a private hospital or institution which will receive it for 
like purpose without charge. 

§ 9. Disposition of Delinquent Children.] In the case of a de- 
linquent child the court may continue the hearing from time to

officer, and may allow said child to remain in its own home, subject 
to the visitation of the probation officer; such child to report to the 
probation officer as often as may be required, and subject to be re- 
turned to the court for further or other proceedings whenever such 
action may appear to be necessary; or the court may cause the child 
to be placed in a suitable family home, subject to the friendly super- 
vision of a probation officer and the further order of the court; or it 
may authorize the child to be boarded out in some suitable family 
home, in case provision is made by voluntary contribution or other- 
wise for the payment of the board of such child, until a suitable 
provision may be made for the child in a home without such pay- 
ment; or the court may commit the child, if a boy, to a training 
school for boys, or, if a girl, to an industrial school for girls, or the 
court may commit the child to any institution within the county, in- 
corporated under the laws in this State that may care for delinquent 
children, or be provided by a city or county suitable for the care of 
such children, or to any State institution which may be established 
for the care of delinquent boys; or if a girl over the age of ten (10)

years lo the State Home for Juvenile Female Offenders. In no case 
shall a child be committed beyond his or her minority. A child 
committed to such institution shall be subject to the control of the 
board of managers thereof, and the said board shall have power to 
parole such child on such conditions as it may prescribe; and the 
court shall, on the recommendation of the board, have power to dis- 
charge such child from custody whenever, in the judgment of the 
court, his or her reformation is complete; or the court may commit 
the child to the care and custody of some association that will re- 
ceive it, embracing in its objects the care of neglected or dependent 
children, and that has been duly accredited as hereinafter provided. 

§ 10. Transfer from Justices and Police Magistrates.] When in 
any county where a court is held, as provided in section three (3) of 
this act, a child under the age of sixteen (16) years is arrested with 
or without warrant, such child may, instead of being taken before a 
justice of the peace, or police magistrate, be taken directly before 
such court; or, if the child is taken before a justice of the peace, or 
police magistrate, it shall be the duty of such justice of the peace, or 
police magistrate, to transfer the case to such court, and the officer 
having the child in charge to take the child before that court, and in 
any case the court may proceed to hear and dispose of the case in 
the same manner as if the child had been brought before the court 
upon petition, as herein provided. In any case the court shall re- 
quire notice to be given and investigation to be made as in other 
cases under this act, and may adjourn the hearing from time to time 
for the purpose. 

§ 13. Supervision of State Commissioners of Public Charities.] 
All associations receiving children under this act shall be subject to 
the same visitation, inspection and supervision by the Board of State 
Commissioners of Public Charities as are the public charitable insti- 
tutions of this State, and it shall be the duty of the said board of 
commissioners to pass annually upon the fitness of every such asso- 
ciation as may receive, or desire to receive, children under the super- 
vision of this act, and every such association shall annually, at such 
time as said board shall direct, make report thereto, showing its con- 
dition, management and competency to adequately care for such 
children as are, or may be, committed to it, and such other facts as 
said board may require, and upon said board being satisfied that 
such association is competent and has adequate facilities to care for 
such children, it shall issue to the same a certificate to that effect, 
which certificate shall continue in force for one (1) year, unless 
sooner revoked by said board, and no child shall be committed to 
any such association which shall not have received such a certificate 
within fifteen (15) months next preceding the commitment. The 
court may, at any time, require from any association receiving, or 
desiring to receive, children under the provisions of this act, such 
reports, information and statements as the judge shall deem proper 
or necessary for his action, and the court shall in no case be required 
to commit a child to any association whose standing, conduct or care

of children, or ability to care for the same, is not satisfactory to the 
court. 

§ 2. There shall be added to said act a new section, to be known 
as section twenty-two (22), which shall read as follows: 

§ 22. In any case in which the court shall find a child neglected, 
dependent or delinquent, it may, in the same or a subsequent pro- 
ceeding, upon the parents of said child, or either of them, being duly 
summoned or voluntarily appearing, proceed to inquire into the 
ability of such parent or parents to support the child or contribute 
to its support, and if the court shall find- such parent or parents able 
to support the child or contribute thereto, the court may enter such 
order or decree as shall be according to equity in the premises, and 
may enforce the same by execution, or in any way in which a court 
of equity may enforce its orders or decrees.

(43), sixty-one (61), sixty-two (62), sixty-three (6b), sixty-four (64)

force June 11, 1891, as amended June 21, 1895, in force July 1, 1895, 
and as amended June 3, 1889, in force July 1, 1889, be, and the same 
is hereby, amended to read as follows: 

§ 24. At the time of meeting for review the commissioners shall 
hear whatever objections may be urged by any person interested, 
and if satisfied that any injustice has been done in the classification 
of the several tracts of land, or any of them, they shall correct the 
same in accordance with what is right, but if not so satisfied, they 
shall leave the classification as first made, and enter an order to that 
effect, Any person appearing and urging objections who is not sat- 
isfied with the decision of the commissioners, may appeal from their 
decision to the county court of the county in which the lands affect- 
ed are situated, within ten days after the decision of the commission- 
ers was rendered, by filing with the county clerk a bond with security 
conditioned to pay such tax as may finally be levied upon the land in 
question, and the costs occasioned by the appeal in case the com- 
missioners shall be sustained by the court of appeal. 

§ 25. Appeals taken to the county court under the provisions of 
this act may be heard at any term thereof: Provided, that ten 
days has intervened from the time of taking the appeal and the first 
day of the term, and if not ten days, then such appeal shall be heard 
at the next term of said court as herein provided, and the costs of 
such appeal may, at the discretion of the court, be divided between 
the drainage district and the owner of the land who may appeal from 
the classification of the commissioners. It shall be the duty of the 
county court to cause to be summoned twelve (12) land owners living 
outside of the drainage district, and who are not interested in any lands 
or work in said district, or of kin to any of the parties interested, to 
meet at the court house at a time set by the court for hearing any appeal 
or appeals that maybe taken from the decision of the commissioners. 
The said twelve (12) land owners shall be men who have practical 
knowledge of the costs and benefits of farm drainage, and shall be 
sworn in as a special jury to try the case on appeal. Should any o£ 



DRAINAGE. 149 



said land owners fail to appear at the time named, or should any of 
those summoned be rejected under the exercise of the usual right of 
challenge, the court may cause to be summoned any other qualified 
land owner or owners, as required by this section, to fill such 
vacancy or vacancies, or the case may be tried by six (6) qualified 
jurors, if both parties to the suit so agree. Whenever the special jury 
summoned to hear appeals shall have been sworn in as herein pro- 
vided, it shall be the duty of the court to lay before them the classi- 
fication as determined by the drainage commissioners, and they shall 
examine the same, and hear allegations and testimony in opposition 
to and in support of the same, and may, if requested by either party 
to the appeal, visit the district and view the lands. If they find the 
tracts of land in question are marked too high or too low in the clas- 
sification, they shall correct the errors; but if no injustice has been 
done, they shall confirm the classification as made by the commis- 
sioners. Their final determination shall be made in writing and filed 
with the records of the court. The classification, when established as 
herein provided, shall also be recorded with other papers on the 
drainage record: Provided, that if either party to such appeal shall 
be dissatisfied with the decision rendered by the special jury as above 
provided, the county judge may hear reasons for or against a further 
appeal to the circuit court of said county on the classification of the 
lands in question, and may, at his discretion, grant or refuse such 
appeal. If further appeal be not prayed for or [be] refused by the county 
judge, then the decision rendered by the special jury in the county 
court shall be conclusive and final. If appeal to the circuit [court] 
be granted the classification as fixed in such court shall be final: 
Provided, further, that in all cases in which appeal is taken to the 
circuit court bond shall be given as in appeal to the county court, and 
the costs of such appeal shall be paid by the owner or owners of the 
land or lands so appealing, in case the classification as fixed by the 
county court shall be sustained. The circuit judge shall cause to be 
sworn in twelve (12) jurors, qualified as required in appeals to the 
county court, and the appeal shall be tried in the same manner as in 
the county court, as nearly as may be, and the decision of such jury 
shall be conclusive and final, and no further appeal shall be granted. 
The classification, as determined and fixed in the circuit court, shall 
be entered in the drainage record of the district in which the land 
or lands are situated, and thereafter shall be the basis upon which 
assessments for benefits shall be made.' 

§ 29. It shall be competent for the commissioners to order the 
tax to be paid in installments of such amounts and at such times as 
will be convenient for the accomplishment of the proposed work; 
otherwise the whole amount of such tax shall be payable thirty days 
after such confirmation, and shall be a lien upon the lands assessed 
until paid; and such taxes shall draw interest at the rate of six (6) per 
cent per annum from the time they shall become payable until they 
are paid, and such interest may be collected and enforced as part of 
the taxes. 



150 DRAINAGE. 



§ 41. After the completion of the work the commissioners shall 
thereafter keep the same in repair, and if they find by reason of error 
in locating or constructing the ditches, or aay of them, or from 
any other causes the lands of the district are not drained or pro- 
tected as contemplated, or some of them receive partial or no ben- 
efit, they shall use the corporate funds of the district to carry out 
the original purpose, to the end that all the lands, so far as prac- 
ticable, shall receive their proper and equal benefits as contemplated 
when the lands were classified. If it be necessary to clear and en- 
large any natural or artificial channels lying beyond the boundaries 
of the district to obtain a proper outlet, the commissioners shall 
use the corporate funds for this purpose, and if the necessary 
privileges can not be obtained for this by agreement with the land 
owners or the commissioners, if the land or lands through which such 
outlet must be made are within another organized district, the commis- 
sioners may acquire the same by condemnation under the act for exer- 
cising the right of eminent domain : Provided, in all such cases, if suffi- 
cient funds are not on hand, the commissioners shall make a new tax 
levy: Provided further, that the commissioner of any drainage dis- 
trict organized under the laws of this State who, to secure a proper 
outlet, have enlarged or improved, or may hereafter enlarge or im- 
prove, any natural or artificial channel lying beyond the boundaries 
of the district, as provided for in this section, upon lands owned by 
private individuals or which may be, or hereafter become, a part of 
another organized district, and who, by such work have or may here- 
after benefit the whole or a part of such lands, whether the privilege 
to so enlarge or improve was or may be obtained by agreement with 
the owners of the lands or the commissioners, if such lands are a 
part of another organized district, or acquired by condemnation un- 
der the act for the exercise of the right of eminent domain, the com- 
missioners of the district above who have or may hereafter enlarge 
or improve such natural or artificial channel beyond the boundaries 
of their district, may collect from said land owner or owners or other 
drainage district or districts, as the case may be, such an amount as 
may be considered a fair compensation for the benefits received by 
the lands lying below the district which has or may hereafter extend 
its work beyond its boundaries to secure a proper outlet as herein 
provided. The amount representing such benefits may be fixed by 
agreement between the commissioner of the upper district and the 
owners of lands lying below the upper district, or the commissioner 
of the lower district if the lands are so organized: Provided, that if 
such agreement can not be made as will be satisfactory to the parties 
interested, the commissioners of the upper district shall be em- 
powered to bring suit in the name of the people of the district 
against the owners of the lands lying below, or the commissioners of 
the lower district if such lands are organized as a drainage district, 
in the circuit court of the county in which such drainage district is 
organized, to recover such an amount as will represent the benefits 
received by the said lower lands or organized district. And if said com- 
missioners are successful in such suit the court shall enter a judg- 



DRAINAGE. 151 



ment against the owner or owners of the lands or the commissioners 
of such other drainage district or districts, as the case may be, and 
the amount of such judgment shall be collected by due process of 
law, and shall be a lien upon the lands or drainage district against 
which the judgment has been rendered until paid: And, provided 
further, that where such lands are within another organized district 
the commissioners of the district against whom, as commissioners, a 
judgment may be rendered for benefits accruing to lands within the 
lower district, shall proceed to classify the lands within such district 
and shall raise by special assessment the amount of such judgment, 
which shall be levied upon the lands of said district, and when col- 
lected be turned over to the treasurer of the upper district. 

§ 48. Sub-districts may be formed by owners of land in main dis- 
tricts for the purpose of local or more minute drainage, in the manner 
provided in this act for the organization of main districts. Such sub- 
districts shall have the right to use the ditches of the main district 
for outlets or in drainage districts organized or proposed to be or- 
ganized which have one or more lateral drains or proposed drains 
which are independent of each other, except as to the main drain or 
outlet, and which do now or will drain separate areas within said dis- 
trict, it shall be and may be lawful for the commissioners, at their 
option, to divide the district into as many sub-districts as there are 
separate areas, for the purpose of making assessments of benefits for 
the work to be done in said sub-district. Provided, the formation 
of sub-districts on either method as above provided shall not operate 
to release the lands in such sub-district from the payment of any as- 
sessment or levy made prior to such division, nor from any assess- 
ment or tax levy which may thereafter be made for the completion, 
maintenance or repair of the main work, or for the payment of the 
principal and interest on any idebtedness incurred by the main dis- 
trict, nor shall it give such sub- district any claim on the funds 
of the main district for its local use: Provided, further, that 
when sub-districts are organized under this act, which have one 
or more lateral drains or proposed drains, which are independ- 
ent of each other, except as to the main sub-district ditch or 
outlet, and which do now or will drain separate areas within said sub- 
district, it shall be the duty of the commissioners, as provided for in 
this section, to divide such sub-districts into as many minor sub- 
districts as there are separate areas within such sub-districts to be 
drained, for the purpose of making assessments of benefits for the 
local or minute drainage to be done in such minor sub-districts. The 
commissioners in charge of or in control of sab-districts shall, on mak- 
ing such minor sub-districts, proceed to classify the lands therein and 
and make assessments as in sub-districts and in main districts, and the 
funds arising therefrom shall be kept as a separate fund, to be used in 
such minor sub-district, from which it was collected in payment for the 
local or minute drainage within such minor sub-division: And, pro- 
vided further, that the formation of such minor sub-districts as herein 
provided for shall not operate to release the lands in such minor sub- 
district from the payment of any assessment or levy made prior to 



152 DRAINAGE. 



such division, nor from any assessment or tax levy which thereafter 
may be made, for the completion, maintenance or repair of the main 
outlets or ditches in sub-districts or in main-districts, or for the pay- 
ment of the principal and interest of any indebtedness incurred by 
the sub-district or main-district, nor shall it give such minor sub- 
district any claim upon the funds of the sub-district or the main- 
district for its local use. Drainage districts, as organized under this 
act, shall be known as the first, second or third class, Main districts 
shall belong to the first class. Sub-districts which have for their out- 
lets the main district ditches or drains shall belong to the second-class, 
and minor sub-districts, as provided for in this act, which have their 
outlets into the main sub-district ditches or drains, shall belong to the 
third class. Sub-districts, or drainage districts, of the second class, 
which contain not less than five (5) sections of land, [shall,] upon the 
filing of a petition signed by a majority of the land owners of said 
sub-district with the county clerk, in favor of the election of a board 
of commissioners for said sub-district, shall proceed at the next suc- 
ceeding annual election of drainage commissioners to elect such a 
drainage board. The notices of the election of such sub-district 
commissioners, the time of holding and making returns of the same, 
and the term of office, shall be the same as provided in this fict for 
the election of commissioners in original or main- districts, and the 
compensation of such commissioners shall be the asame as is pro- 
vided for main-district commissioners. It shall be the duty of the 
main-district commissioners to control all matters pertaining to 
main-district drainage and such sub-districts of the second class as 
may be of too small area to be entitled to sub-district commissioners, 
and such sub-districts as may not file a petition for the election of 
sub-district commissioners. Sub-district commissioners, as provided 
for in this act, shall have charge of and control over all matters per- 
tainining to drainage within their respective sub- districts, or districts 
of the the second (2d) class, and of drainage within their respective 
minor sub-districts, or districts of the third (3d) class, as provided 
for in this act, except such work as belongs exclusively to the main- 
district and classification and assessments made, within such sub- 
districts and such minor sub- districts on account of the main work. 

§ 61. When an appeal is taken under the preceding section, it 
shall be taken to the county and circuit courts of the county in 
which the land is situated, as provided in sections 24 and 25 of this 
act, and the decision rendered by the special jury in the last court of 
appeals shall be conclusive. The classification shall be made in 
writing and be made a part of the court record, and shall also be 
entered on the drainage journal, and shall be the basis for the levy 
of assessments for the purpose of drainage in the class of districts 
[to which] such lands may belong. 

§ 62. As soon as the classification has been corrected and con- 
firmed by the commissioners or court of appeal, as [provided in the 
preceding section, it shall be competent for the commissioners to 
order such an amount of money to be raised by special assessment 
upon the lands of the districts which are benefited as ma}'^ be neces-

«ary, according to the best judgment of the commissioners, which 
amount shall be certified and returned by the commissioners to the 
clerk of said court, who shall record the same in the drainage record. 
The certificate may be substantially as follows: 

"We hereby certify that we require the sum of 

.dollars, to be levied as a special assessment or tax, for drainage pur- 
pose, on the lands and property benefited in the 

special drainage district, in the county (or counties) 

of and State of Illinois.

Commissioners." 

Which certificate shall be signed by the commissioners in their cor- 
porate name. It shall thereupon be the duty of said clerk to com- 
pute and apportion the amount thus levied among the several tracts 
in the name of the owners when known, according to the acreage of 
each, and its figure of classification on the graduated scale, so that 
each tract may bear its burden in proportion to benefits. The com- 
missioners shall make out a tax list, which shall conform as near as 
the facts will admit, to the list provided for in section 26 of this act, 
which list shall be signed by the commissioners and filed with the 
•clerk among the records of the drainage district. 

Provided, hoivever, where the lands of said district lie in two or 
more counties the clerk of the court in which the proceedings are had 
shall forthwith, after the filing thereof, send a copy of such list to 
circuit court clerk or recorder, as the case may be, of the other county 
or counties in which lands assessed may lie, showing the land assessed 
in such county or counties, and it shall be the duty of such circuit 
•court clerk or recorder to file such list in a record in his office and 
properly note or index the fact of such levy to each quarter section of 
land assessed. The fees for such certification, recording and index- 
ing shall be the usual fees for like service and shall be taxed as cost 
in such proceeding, and when paid shall be distributed to the officers 
•entitled to the same as part of the fees of their respective offices. 

§ 63. If at any time the commissioners shall find that the amount 
of such assessment or tax levied will be inadequate to complete the 
proposed work, they shall make such additional levy or levies as may 
be necessary to complete the proposed work, which additional levy 
or levies shall be made on the original classification, as herein pro- 
vided for the first assessment or tax levy and computed and extended 
by the clerk in the same manner. Upon any levy being made as herein 
provided, it shall be competent for the commissioners to order the 
tax to be paid in installments of such amounts and at such times as 
will be convenient for the accomplishment of the proposed work; 
•otherwise the whole amount of such tax shall be payable thirty (30) 
■days after such confirmation, and shall be a lien upon the lands as- 
:sessed until paid; and such taxes shall draw interest at the rate of 



154 DRAINAGE. 



six (6) per cent per annum from the time they shall become payable 
until they are paid, and such interest may be collected and enforced 
as part of the taxes: Provided, however, if in the the judgment of 
the commissioners the payment of such tax, or any installment or in- 
stallments thereof, for the speedy completion of the proposed work, 
would be too heavy a burden upon the owners and persons interested 
to pay in time to be used for said work, the commissioners may, at 
any time after the levy has been made, postpone the payment of such 
tax, or any one or more installment or installments, or any part 
thereof, to such time or times as they think proper and advisable, 
but not longer than fifteen (15) years from the time of the levy 
thereof. For the construction of the proposed work, or for the con- 
tinuation and completion of the same, where it has been commenced, 
the commissioners may borrow money not exceeding in amount 
ninety (90) per cent of any assessment or levy unpaid at the time 
of borrowing, and may secure the payment of the same by notes or 
bonds of said district, bearing interest not to exceed six (6) per cent 
per annum. The interest may be made payable annually or semi- 
annually, which notes or bonds may be made due and payable at the 
same or different times, but shall not run beyond one year after the 
last assessment or levy on account of which the money is borrowed 
falls due, which notes or bonds shall not be held to make the com- 
missioners personally liable for the money borrowed, but shall con- 
stitute a lien upon the assessment or assessments, levy or levies, on 
account of which they are issued, for the repayment of the principal 
and interest thereon. On the correction and confirmation of said as- 
sessment, or levy, it shall be the duty of the clerk of said court to 
record the same, together with all orders of the commissioners, in 
the drainage record, and he shall make a certified copy of such tax 
list, the order of the commissioners showing how or when the assess- 
ment or tax for benefits is payable, and deliver the same to the treas- 
urer of said district, who shall proceed to collect the taxes or install- 
ments as they come due. 

§ 64. In any case or cases where the drainage commissioners of 
any special drainage district heretofore organized, or that may here- 
after be organized under the laws of this State, have, or may, for 
the purpose of constructing or completing the work to such district, 
issued notes or bonds on any assessment or assessments, installment 
or installments, the payment of which at maturity would, in the 
judgment of the commissioners, be an unreasonable burden on the 
owners of lands asssessed, said commissioners shall have the right 
and power to fund such notes and bonds, as the case may be, or any 
part thereof, and issue new notes or bonds to the amount of the 
unpaid assessment or assessments, installment or installments, upon 
which such notes or bonds thus outstanding were issued, which new 
notes or bonds may bear interest not to exceed six (6) per cent per 
annum. Said commissioners may extend the time for the payment 
of any such assessment or assessments, installment or installments, 
as the case may be, by an order signed by them, and tiled with the 
clerk thereof, to be by him recorded in the drainage record, and a 



DRAINAGE. 155 



certified copy thereof to be delivered by said clerk to the treasurer of 
said district, which order shall operate to suspend the time for col- 
lecting until the time fixed in said order of the assessment or assess- 
ments, installment or installments, named in said order. Such new 
notes or bonds shall not run to exceed one year beyond the time 
fixed for the payment of the assessment or assessments! installment 
or installments, upon which the same is, or are, issued. And the old 
notes or bonds shall be taken up and cancelled by said commission- 
ers immediately upon issuing the new notes or bonds, on the same 
assessment or installment, or any part thereof. The payment of in- 
terest on all notes or bonds shall be provided for, collected and paid, 
as herein provided, for the payment of interest in other cases. 

§ 65. Whenever a petition, signed by a majority in number of 
the adult owners of lands assessed for benefits in any special drain- 
age district, hereto or hereafter organized under the laws of this State, 
and who own, in the aggregate, at least one-third (|) of such land, 
shall be presented to the drainage commissioners of such district, 
representing that any assessment or tax has been made against the 
lands assessed for benefits, for the purpose of constructing the work 
therein, and that the same has been confirmed and is unpaid in whole 
or in part, and that it would promote the interest of the land owners 
in such district, to extend the time of the payment thereof, or any 
part of the same, stating what part, a,nd the time or times to which 
they desire such extension made, but not to exceed ten (10) years 
from the time the assessment or levy was confirmed, and asking that 
such extension be made and that bonds of the district be issued, not 
exceeding in amount the amount of the assessments, levy, or part 
thereof thus sought to be extended, it shall be the duty of the com- 
missioners of such districts to enter an order extending the time of 
the payment thereof, as asked for in said petition, and thereupon it 
shall be competent for said commissioners to issue the bonds of said 
district to the amount thus extended, which bonds shall bear interest 
not to exceed six (6) per cent per annum, payable annually, or semi- 
annually, and shall be a lien on the assessment, levy, or part thereof, 
thus extended, and shall not run longer than one (1) year beyond the 
time the same becomes due by such extension. The petition and 
order of the commissioners shall be filed and recorded in the drain- 
age record, and shall operate to stay the collection of the assessment, 
levy or part thereof thus extended, to the time fixed by said commis- 
sioners, and shall be sufficient authority for the issuing of such 
bonds by the commissioners of such district. No bonds issued 
under the provisions of this act shall be sold for less than the 
par value.

An Act act to amend section 76 of an act entitled, "An act to pro- 
vide for drainage for agricultural and sanitary purposes, and to 
repeal certain acts therein named,''' approved June 26, 1885, in 
jorce July I, 1885. 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois 
represented in the General Assembly: That section 76 of an act en- 
titled, "An act to provide for drainage of agricultural and sanitary- 
purposes, and to repeal certain acts therein named," approved June 
27. 1885, in force July 1, 1885, be amended so as to read as follows: 

§ 76. Where two or more parties owning adjoining lands which 
require a system of combined drainage have by voluntary action 
constructed ditches which form a continuous line, or lines and 
branches, the several parties shall be liable for their just proportion 
for such repairs and improvements as may be needed therefor, the 
amount to be determined as near as may be on the same principles 
as if these ditches were in an organized district. Whenever such re- 
pairs and improvements are not made by voluntary agreement, any 
one or more owning parts of such ditch shall be competent to peti- 
tion the commissioners of highways of the township for the forma- 
tion of a drainage district to include all the lands to be benefited by 
maintaining these ditches. The form and conditions heretofore pre- 
scribed shall be observed as near as practicable, except as otherwise 
directed by this act, but the ditches shall be taken as a dedication of 
the right-of-way and their construction and joining as the consent of 
the several parties to be united as a drainage district. These ditches, 



158 DRAINAGE. 



if open, shall be made tile drains, where practicable, and with the 
written consent of the owners of more than one- half of the land in 
the district, and also more than one-half of the land owners in num- 
bers. The petition shall be presented to the town clerk, who shall 
file the same in his office, and within five (5) days thereafter shall 
notify each commissioner of its receipt. Said clerk shall also cause 
notice of the filing of such petition to be served upon all owners of 
land included in said petition, whose residences are known, who re- 
side in the county, which notice may be served by a constable or 
other officer upon persons residing in the county, and he shall at 
once mail notice to land owners not residing in said county. The 
commissioners shall, within ten (10) days after date of said notice, 
proceed to examine all the lands that would be benefited or damaged 
by reason of the proposed improvement, and if they find said ditch 
or ditches have been neglected, and damage has resulted from said 
neglect, they shall proceed to organize a drainage district by causing 
a plat to be made of all said lands and classify the same in such 
sized tracts for benefits and assessments as may seem most practic- 
able, said plat or map to be clearly defined, and the said commis- 
sioners shall make special assessments for benefits on each tract of 
land separately, and also assess and determine the pro- 
portionate cost and expenses as to each tract separately, as 
provided in section 21 of this act, so far as practicable, and with all 
proceedings of commissioners in relation to the district placed 
on the drainage record of the township. The district shall be named 
and numbered. If necessary the commissioners may employ a com- 
petent and reliable surveyor or civil engineer. They shall proceed to 
have the needed work done without unnecessary delay. They shall 
advertise for bids for said work in the nearest newspaper, and by 
posting notices in not less than five (5) of the most public places in 
the township for ten (10) days before date for contracting for said 
work, and then let the work to the lowest responsible bidder, bids to 
be made upon the ditches upon the land of each land owner sepa- 
rately: Provided, each owner of land in the district shall have the 
right to do the required work on his land at the rate of the lowest bid 
for such work upon his land: Provided, he signs a contract to that 
effect on date of letting the contracts, and the work shall be done un- 
der the direction of the commissioners, and within the time to be des- 
ignated by the commissioners. All expenses incurred by said dis- 
trict for construction, maintenance and repairs, shall be taxed on all 
lands in the district in just proportion to the benefit received. It is 
the intent of this act to include all lands that would be damaged by 
filling the original ditch, The supervisor of the township shall be 
the treasurer of the drainage fund upon executing a good and suffi- 
cient bond double the amount that shall probably come into his hands 
as such treasurer, with two or more good and sufficient sureties, to be 
filed with the town clerk and approved by him for the benefit of such 
drainage district. If any land owner of the district shall feel ag- 
grieved at the assessment made by the commissioners, he may take 
an appeal to three (3) supervisors, as provided in sections 21 and 25 
of the act hereby amended. When a drainage district is organized 



DRAINAGE. 159 



under the provisions of this act it shall be known by the name a&opted 
as provided in this act, and by that name shall be a body politic, and 
may sue and be sued, plead and be impleaded, contract and be con- 
tracted with, and it shall be their duty to maintain and keep, in re- 
pair such ditch, the cost thereof to be apportioned and taxed against 
the several tracts of land in like manner as above: Provided, the land 
owners shall have the right themselves to do all acts necessary to such 
maintenance and repair. When the lands affected are in two or 
more townships, such petition shall be filed in the office of the town 
clerk of each township, who shall give like notice to the commission- 
ers of highways of his township. In such case each town clerk shall 
cause notice as above to be given owners of land situated in his town- 
ship and included in such petition. In such case the commissioners 
of highways of the several townships shall hold a joint meeting and 
from their number select three (3) who shall be the corporate authori- 
ties of such district and with the same powers, duties and responsi- 
bilities as heretofore provided for districts in one township; and shall 
also designate the supervisor of one of said townships as treasurer of 
said district. When once selected, the successor of such commissioner 
and of such supervisor, when duly elected, qualified and giving bond 
as herein provided, shall take his place among the corporate authori- 
ties of such district upon the same terms and conditions as above 
provided, unless changed at a joint meeting of the commissioners of 
highways of the several townships. The commissioners and treasurer 
shall make an annual itemized report of all moneys received and paid 
out by and for the district, with names of recipients of such money 
and nature of service rendered therefor; said report to be filed with 
the town clerk, who shall post a copy thereof on the door of the vot- 
ing place of the township not less than five (5) days before the an- 
nual town meeting, and read in full by the clerk in said town meeting. 
This act shall in all respects be applicable to counties not under 
township organization, and be in full force in such counties: Pro- 
vided, that instead of commissioners of highways being the commis- 
sioners for such drainage districts organized under this act, the board 
of county commissioners shall be the commissioners of such districts, 
and instead of the supervisors of townships, the collector of the 
county shall be the treasurer of such districts, and instead of the town 
clerk, the county clerk of the county shall be the clerk in such dis- 
tricts. And in counties not under township organization the board 
of county commissioners shall have the same powers, privileges, duties, 
responsibilities and restrictions as commissioners of highways, as pro- 
vided in this act, and the county collector shall give bond as collector 
of such district in the same manner as herein provided for supervis- 
ors, and when organized, such district shall be a corporation with the 
rights, duties, privileges, powers, responsibilities and restrictions as 
heretofore provided for such drainage districts when so organized, 
and the compensation of all commissioners and clerks shall be two 
(2) dollars and fifty (50) cents per day, and the treasurer shall be 
allowed the usual commission or compensation for similar services.

day in the months of May, June, July, August or September imme- 
diately preceding any regular autumn elections; which last men- 
tioned primary election shall affect only the nominations for the

ELECTIONS. 175 



committee or managing committee, may determine and name the day 
for holding such primary election; but no two different political par- 
ties shall hold their primary elections on the same day; and the po- 
litical party first applying, as hereinafter set forth, shall have the 
preference in the choice of days, in case two or more different political 
parties shall in their application appoint the same day. 

§ 3. No political party or organization shall be entitled under this 
act to hold a primary election unless at least fifteen days before such 
primary election day such political party or organization shall tile 
with the board of election commissioners within whose jurisdiction 
they are, and in such portions of the county as lie beyond the juris- 
diction of said board of election commissioners, also with the county 
clerk, and with the county clerk where there is no board of election 
■commissioners, a call or application in writing, which shall set forth: 

First— The name of such political party and the address of the 
headquarters of the central committee or managing committee of 
such political party. 

Second — The day on which such primary election is to be held. 

Third — The name, place and time of every convention for the 
nomination of candidates for public office for which such primary 
election is called. 

Fourth — The description of each of the various primary election 
districts, together with the names of the three persons for judges of 
election and two persons for clerks of election for each such primary 
district, also the designation of a polling place for each such primary 
district. 

Fifth — The number of delegates from each such primary district 
to each convention: Provided, that the number of delegates from 
each of the different primary districts be proportioned equally to the 
number of voters of such political party in each district as shown by 
the last preceding presidential election returns: And, provided, i]iB.i 
each primary election district shall be allowed to be represented by 
at least one delegate to each convention in which such primary dis- 
trict is entitled to be represented. 

Sixth — The name of some newspaper recommended for the publi- 
cation of the notice of such primary election as hereinafter provided: 

Provided, that all the organizations or subdivisions of any one gen- 
eral political party representing any municipality, district, or ward, 
within the territory of the municipality adopting this act, shall hold 
their primary elections, such as may then be in order, for the re- 
spective county, city, village or incorporated town, or other political 
divisions therein, together and on one and the same day; and each 
municipal, district or ward organization of the party that neglects to 
join shall forfeit the right to hold primaries for its political nomina- 
tions then due. In due time before filing said call or application, the 
central or managing committee representing the largest political ter- 
ritory for which primaries are next in order may notify in writing the 
chairman or secretary of each territorial organization of such general 
party to return in writing, within a specified time, properly authenti- 



176 ELECTIONS, 



cated by such territorial organization of the party, the request of such 
subdivision of the party for its respective primaries, and also the 
name, place and time of the lawful nominating conventions they wish 
to hold, and containing other lawful suggestions; and upon receiving 
such request in writing, such central or managing committee shall 
include in said call or application the name, place and time of the 
proper conventions of such subdivision of the party, and all such 
other proper matters and things as will make its primaries effective, 
fair and equal, and shall make only such small changes in the time of 
the suggested primary election day or the convention days as may be 
required by this act in order to have all the primaries of each politi- 
cal party held on the same day; but such central or managing com- 
mittee, even if no such request in writing is returned, may include 
the primaries and conventions of all such lesser territorial subdi- 
visions of the party. If such central or managing committee, after 
receiving such request in writing, files said call or application without 
including therein the primaries and conventions of the subdivision 
of the party making a request in writing as aforesaid, such subdi- 
vision of the party shall be entitled to hold its primaries together 
with the general party, upon filing with the proper public officer, 
clerk or board, at least twelve days before the primary election day, 
an application in writing, which shall set forth the fact of such omis- 
sion, the name of the headquarters of the subdivision of such party, 
the name, place, and time of the lawful conventions desired to be 
held by such subdivision of the party, and containing also such other 
suggestions and statements as will make it possible for the proper 
authorities to include the primaries of such subdivision of the party 
in the general primaries of the general party. In default of such 
central or managing committee in filing any call or application at 
least twenty-one days before nomination certificates for the reg- 
ular election day are due, then each subdivision of such party whose 
lawful primaries are then in order may, not less than eighteen days 
before the day such certificates are due, file its own call or applica- 
tion, and the lawful officer, board of election commissioners, or the 
county clerk, as the case may be, with whom the calls are lawfully 
filed shall, in an order or memorandum substantially in the form of a 
call or application, fix one and the same day for all such primaries, 
and shall determine and fix upon all other things necessary to have 
such applicants have an effective, fair and equal primary election 
with as little public expense as possible. 

§ 4. Such call or application shall be signed by the chairman and 
attested by the secretary of the central committee or managing commit- 
tee of such political party or organization,verified by oath that the facts 
therein stated are true and that they are, respectively, the chairman and 
secretary of such committee. No persons and no political party or orga- 
nization shall use the name of another political party or organization 
(or any designation similar to that of another political party or organi- 
zation) in such manner as to deceive voters. Upon the filing of such 
call or application according to the provisions of this act, any politi- 
cal party or organization which, at the last preceding general election 



ELECTIONS. 177 



in this State, polled at least ten (10) per cent of the entire vote cast 
in the whole county, city, village or incorporated town, represented 
by such political party or organization shall be allowed to hold a 
primary election under this act. 

§ 5. At least ten (10) days before the primary election day desig- 
nated as aforesaid by such political party, it shall be the duty of the 
board of election commissioners, or the county clerk, or both, as the 
case may be, upon the application of any political party entitled 
thereto as aforesaid, throagh its central committee, or managing 
committee, as aforesaid, to give notice of such primary election. 
Such notice shall contain the name of the political party or organiza- 
tion for which such primary election is to be held, the address of the 
headquarters of the central committee, or managing committee, of 
such party, the name, place and time of each convention according 
to the call aforesaid to be held by such party for the nomination of 
candidates for public office, the date upon which such primary elec- 
tion is to be held, the description of each of the various primary 
election districts, the location of the polling place for each such dis- 
trict, the names of the three judges and the two clerks appointed to 
serve at each primary election district, and the number of delegates 
to be elected from each primary district to each convention. Such 
notice shall be published in some newspaper of general circulation 
recommended by the executive committee of the political party or 
organization for which such primary election is to be held. But no 
failure or error in such publication, or in the application aforesaid, 
shall invalidate any primary election actually held, and any primary 
election held pursuant to any notice substantially like the above no- 
tice shall be deemed to be held under this act, and all justices of the 
peace and all judges of courts of record in the territory for which 
such primary election is called shall take judicial notice of the hold- 
ing of such primary election under this act. 

§ 6. For purposes of primary elections under this act, in the more 
sparsely settled country a regular election precinct may constitute a 
primary election district; but in populous sections, in order to save 
expense, from two to seven, but no more, entire contiguous election 
precincts of the same ward, or other political division, in as compact 
a form as practicable, may be joined so as to form one primary elec- 
tion district, but in such manner that each primary election district, 
consisting of two or more regular election precincts, shall include at 
least three regular election judges and two regular election clerks re- 
siding within such primary district and belonging to the party estab- 
lishing such primary district. In no event shall any primary dis- 
trict contain more than eight hundred (700) voters, to be ascertained 
by the party vote of the party holding said primary election cast at 
the last preceding presidential election. Primary districts, when 
lawfully established, shall lemain as established for each party's suc- 
cessive primaries, except as changes may be necessitated by law.

178 ELECTIONS. 



Provided, that where a regular election precinct consists of, and 
is coextensive with, a congressional township, then said congressional 
township shall constitute one primary election district within the 
meaning of this act. 

And, provided further, that in such case and in any case where 
there exists no board of election commissioners, and where the judges 
and clerks of election are appointed and chosen by a board of super- 
visors or board of county commissioners, then the judges and clerks 
who are to serve as judges and clerks of any primary election shall 
be members of the political party holding such primary election; 
and if there are no judges and clerks of election in and for such con- 
gressional township who belong to, or are members of, the political 
party seeking to hold a primary election under the provisions and 
within the meaning of this act, then the county central or governing 
committee of such political party shall have, and is hereby granted, 
the power and right to name, appoint, notify, direct and qualify such 
members of its own party as are otherwise eligible under the provis- 
ions of this act to serve as judges and clerks of such or any primary 
election held under and within the meaning of this act. And in such 
event the compensation per diem of such judges and clerks shall be 
the same as that of judges and clerks serving at any regular election, 
notwithstanding the provision for compensation found in section 10 
of this act. 

In each such primary election district there shall be a primary poll- 
ing place, which shall be as near the center of population of such 
district as is practicable, and such primary polling place shall be in 
the most public, orderly and convenient part of such primary district, 
and within a room permitting easy ingress and egress to voters, and 
no building shall be designated or used as such polling place in which 
spirituous or intoxicating liquor is sold, or which is within one hund- 
red (100) feet of any place where such liquor is sold. The central 
committee, or managing committee, of any political party or organi- 
zation entitled to hold such primary elections under this act shall 
establish such primary election districts and designate such polling 
places according to this act not less than fifteen (15) days before 
such primary election day. In default of such central committee 
or managing committee designating such primary election districts 
and polling places, the same shall be done by the member or mem- 
bers of the board of election commissioners representing said party, 
or, if no such board exists in the county, then by the judge of the 
county court. 

§ 7. Not less than ten days before such primary election day, the 
certain person, officer, officers or board, or board of election commis- 
sioners, as the case may be, by the general election law authorized to 
appoint judges and clerks for general elections, is, and are hereby, 
empowered to appoint, and shall, for each primary election district, 
appoint and swear in from the list of duly appointed and regular 
election judges and clerks, and otherwise as herein provided, three 
judges and two clerks, who are members of such political party, to 
serve, respectiveley, as judges and clerks at such primary election: 



ELECTIONS. 179 



Provided, however, that such political party or organization, through 
its central or managing committee, shall have the right, not less than 
fifteen days before such primary election day, to designate and name 
for appointment for service at such primary elections such certain of 
the regularly listed judges and clerks as were originally recommended 
and named or endorsed for appointment as regular election judges 
and clerks by such political party; and in case there are not a suffi- 
cient number of listed regular judges and clerks so originally recom- 
mended and named or indorsed by such political party to equip all 
primary polling places of such party, then such political party or 
organization may, not less than fifteen days before such primary 
election day, through its central or managing committee, recommend 
to such appointing power a sufficient number of qualified persons for 
appointment to serve as primary election judges and clerks to equip 
all the primary polling places of such party; and such person, officer 
or board having such appointing power, to whom or to which such 
names are designated by such political party as aforesaid, shall, not 
less than ten days before such primary election day, select from the 
names so recommended, and shall notitiy, appoint and swear in such 
persons if qualified to act as judges and clerks at such primary elec- 
tion; and such persons so appointed shall serve as judges and clerks, 
respectively, at such primary election. Except when only one or two 
regular election precincts form a primary election district, no two 
judges and no two clerks shall serve at the same primary polling 
place who reside in the same regular election precinct. In default of 
such designation or recommendation of such judges and clerks by 
such political party, and in any case of vacancy among primary 
judges and clerks, then such person, officer or board having the ap- 
pointing power as aforesaid shall appoint and swear in from the list 
of duly appointed and regular election judges and clerks who are 
members of such party a sufficient number of judges and clerks to 
equip all the primary polling places of such party. Such judges 
and clerks appointed under this act shall take an oath of office sub- 
stantially as follows, and shall subscribe their names to the same: 

"I , residing at , 

in the city (village or town) of , in the 

State of Illinois, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I am a legal 

voter and a member of the party and a householder 

in the ward of the city (village or town) 

of , in the State of Illinois; that I will support 

the laws and constitution of the United States and of the State of 
Illinois, and that I will faithfully and honestly discharge the duties 

of primary election judge (or clerk) for the primary 

election district of the ward, of the city (village or 

town) of , in the county of , in 

the State of Illinois, according to the best of my ability.

180 ELECTIONS. 



In due time before such primary election day such appointing per- 
son, officer or board shall notify every person designated as aforesaid 
and intended for appointment as judge or clerk of the fact of his 
selection; and he shall, unless excused by such person, officer or 
board, for good cause, be appointed as a judge or clerk, respectively, 
and he shall then be bound to serve as such judge or clerk for the 
ensuing primary election. Such person, officer or board appointing 
judges and clerks as aforesaid shall keep a record of the names of 
all such persons so notified to appear, and whether such persons were 
rejected for want of qualification or excused for cause; in such case 
the facts shall be noted. In case any person so notified shall not ap- 
pear before such person, officer or board, as required in this act, or 
if he do appear and refuse to serve, or if he shall be sworn to serve 
and fail to serve on the day appointed, he shall be guilty of a misde- 
meanor under this act, unless good cause be shown to excuse his 
default for such service. In case the person intended for appoint- 
ment does not appear upon notification, then other persons shall be 
notified as aforesaid until eligible persons are found who will serve. 
All persons subscribing to the oath as aforesaid, and all persons 
actually serving as judges and clerks at any primary election, 
whether sworn in or not, shall be deemed to be, and are hereby de- 
clared to be, officers of the county court of the respective county; and 
such persons shall be liable to punishment by such court in a pro- 
ceeding for comtempt for any misbehavior as such judge or clerk, to 
be tried in open court on oral testimony, in a summary manner, with- 
out written pleadings; but such trial or punishment for contempt of 
court shall not be any bar to any criminal proceeding against such 
primary judges or clerks for any violation of this act. 

§ 8. All the laws of this State respecting the general elections in 
this State, now or hereafter in force in any election precinct or dis- 
trict in such courty, city, village or incorporated town, except as the 
same are modified by the provisions of this act, and so far as the 
same are applicable to the primary elections provided for in this act, 
are hereby declared to be in force in each primary election district

In the same manner and by the same persons or officers or boards 
or judges and clerks, as is provided by the law in force in any elec- 
tion precinct or district in such county, city, village or incorporated 
town respecting the general elections, except as such general election 
laws are modified by this act, and except as to the time of appoint- 
ing the respective polling places in the various election precincts or 
districts, which time shall be at least ten (10) days before each pri- 
mary election day. 

The certain person, officer, board, board of election commissioners, 
or any or all of them, by the general election law authorized to fur- 
nish or have the custody of general election ballot boxes, general 
registry book of voters, and other election paraphernalia, shall, in 
due time before primary election day, notify one or more of the judges 
of each election district to appear before such person, officer or board

ing authority of such city to make provision for the prompt payment

he offers to vote: Provided, no person shall be deemed to be a mem- 
ber of a particular party if he has signed any petition for the nomi-

under the regulations and restrictions applicable to the regular elec- 
tions. 

§ 12. None but legally qualified voters residing in the primary

vention of such party. Judges and clerks acting as such at any 
primary election shall be ineligible as delegates or alternates to any 
such convention. Not more than one person shall be elected as an 
alternate delegate for each delegate to any such convention, and no 
person shall act as a delegate to any such convention except when 
elected a delegate, or an alternate delegate, according to this act: 
Provided, that in the absence of a delegate the alternate delegate 
whose name appears on the ballot opposite the name of such absent 
delegate shall act in his stead; but if such alternate also is absent, 
then the delegates present representing the district shall select from 
the other alternates who are present the person who shall act in 
place of the absent delegate. If all the alternates are absent, or if 
there are not sufficient alternates to fill vacancies, then delegates of 
the district present shall select any qualified member or members of 
the party as delegates to fill such vacancies. If no delegates or al- 
ternates from a given district are present, the vacant delegation may 
be filled by the delegate or delegates present from that ward or town- 
ship. 

§ 13. At such primary elections the manner of voting shall be 
by ballot. The ballots shall all be of uniform size, and eight (8) 



ELECTIONS. 183 



inches in length and (8) inches in width. The ballots shall be 
printed or written, or partly printed or partly written, upon plain 
white paper. Any person or persons may, at private expense, fur- 
nish such ballots, and no primary election ballots shall be furnished 
at public expense. The name of each delegate and alternate delegate 
for whom the voter intends to vote shall appear on one ballot, on one 
and the same side thereof in plain letters, together with the name of 
the convention to which such delegates are to be elected. Imme- 
diately preceding the list of delegates to any convention may appear 
the name of the candidate or candidates for whom such delegates are 
expected to vote in such convention, or the word "unpledged" may 
appear, and at the top of the ballot may appear the simple party 
name, the primary district and the location of the polling place. 
Unless ballots substantially comply with this act, in size and color, 
the same shall be void for all purposes, and shall not be received or 
deposited or counted by any person or judge at any such primary 
election; and all ballots not in accordance with the provis- 
ions of this act, but which by any mistake may have been 
deposited in the ballot box, shall be void, and shall be 
marked "defective" on the back thereof; but no ballot shall 
be defective because the voter depositing the same has named upon it 
a less number of delegates than such voter was entitled to vote for. If 
the voter votes for more persons than there are delegates to be elected, 
to a certain convention, of [or] if for any reason it is impossible for 
the judges to determine the voter's choice, such ballot or part thereof 
shall not be counted. Ballots not counted shall be marked "defect- 
ive" on the back thereof, and ballots to which objection has been 
made by either of the judges or challengers shall be marked "objected 
to" on the back thereof, and a memorandum, signed by the judges, 
stating how it was counted, shall be written upon the back of each 
ballot so marked, and all ballots marked "defective," or "objected to," 
shall be enclosed in an envelope securely sealed and so marked and 
endorsed as to clearly indicate its contents. The judges shall receive 
from any person and permit to be freely and equally exposed, in sep- 
arate and orderly piles, within the polling place, near the ballot box 
and within reach of voters, a sufficient supply of each of the various 
primary tickets or ballots; and the judges shall hand one of each of 
the various tickets to each and every person qualified to vote; and 
whenever the supply of any of the various tickets becomes insufficient, 
the judges shall immediately mention the fact of such insufficieny to 
one or more of the candidates or persons interested in said ticket. 
Any judge or clerk, or any other person, who shall in any manner 
conceal or remove or destroy any such supply of tickets, or who shall 
hinder or prevent or interfere with the free and equal reception, ex- 
posure, distribution, use or supply of such various primary tickets or 
ballots, or who shall do any electioneering within 100 feet of the poll- 
ing place shall, upon conviction thereof, be deemed guilty of a mis- 
demeanor. 

§ 14. The polls of such primary election shall be opened at twelve 
o'clock noon and continue open until seven o'clock in the afternoon 
of the same day, at which time the polls shall be closed; if any judge 



184 ELECTIONS. 



or clerk, without lawful excuse, shall be behind time for fifteen (15) 
minutes after the time for opening such polls, he shall be guilty of a 
misdemeanor under this act and punished accordingly. No judge or 
clerk shall absent himself to exceed five (5) minutes at any time until 
tbe ballots are all cast and counted and returns made; and, when ab- 
sent for any cause during such time, said judge or clerk shall authorize 
some one of the same political party with himself to act for him until 
his return. If any judge or clerk shall not be present after the expira- 
tion of fifteen (15) minutes from the time to open the polls, the judge 
or judges present shall fill the place of such absent judge or clerk, 
and one of the judges shall administer to such substitute the oath, as 
required of the judges or clerks when originally appointed, and blank 
forms shall be provided for such purpose, which oath shall be pre- 
served and returned by the judges to the proper officer or the board, 
and such appointee shall be subject to the same punishment and pen- 
alties as any other judge or clerk. Whenever such regular judge or 
clerk shall be present such substitute shall cease to act. If all judges 
or clerks fail to appear at the proper time at the polling place, or in 
case no primary judges and clerks have been appointed as provided 
in this act, then bystanding voters of such primary district, to the 
number of five (5) or more, of such political party may elect legal 
voters of such party to act as judges or clerks. Such judges and 
clerks, elected as last aforesaid, shall have full power to conduct such 
primary election in accordance with this act. Any judge or clerk who 
shall wilfully absent himself from the polls on such primary election 
day without good cause shall be guilty of a misdemeanor under this 
act; and if any judge or clerk shall wilfully detain any registry book 
or poll book, or other election paraphernalia, and not cause it to be 
produced at the polling place at the opening of the polls, or for fifteen 
(15) minutes thereafter, he shall be guilty of a misdemeanor under 
this act. 

If for any good cause a primary election can not be held at the 
polling place designated or appointed as aforesaid, the judges of such 
polling place may, at the time set for opening the polls of such pri- 
mary election, adjourn such election to the most convenient polling- 
place, near by, which is otherwise suitable according to this act; and 
such judges shall publicly proclaim such change and post a notice of 
such change on the polling place originally appointed. 

§ 15, Before voting begins the ballot box shall be empty; and it 
shall be opened and shown to those present to be empty; and it shall 
not be removed from the public view from the time when it is shown 
to be empty until after the close of the polls. It shall be locked and 
the key delivered to one of the judges, and it shall not be again 
opened until the close of the polls. The judges of election shall each 
be held guilty of a misdemeanor, under this act, if such ballot box 
shall not by them be kept constantly in public view during the pro- 
gress of the election, unless it shall be shown by any judge that he 
protested against any obstruction of the view of the ballot box and

was overruled by the majority of the judges. Voters shall be admit- 
ted within the polling place, and there shall be permitted no hand- 
ing in of votes through windows, doors or other openings. 

§ 16. Each of the clerks of election, in the poll books kept by 
him, shall enter in the proper column the name of each person whose 
vote is duly received for deposit in the ballot box; and in the column 
under the heading "Number" he shall note the successive number of 
each successive voter; and in the column headed "Residence" he 
shall note the residence of each such voter. Each page of such 
special book shall be substantially in the following form:

186 ELECTIONS. 



§ 17. One of the judges of such election shall receive the ballot 
from the voter and shall announce the residence and name of such 
voter in a loud voice; such ballot shall be folded by the voter in 
such a manner that the contents thereof can not be seen without un- 
folding such ballot. If the judges of election are satisfied that the 
person offering to vote is a legal voter, whose name is registered on 
the regular election registry books, except as herein otherwise pro- 
vided for localities where there is no board of election commission- 
ers, and are satisfied that he is a member of the political party hold- 
ing such primary election, and, if no challenge is interposed, the 
judge receiving such ballot shall again announce to the clerks of 
election the residence and name of the person offering such ballot, 
and such judge shall mark with pencil or ink the initials of his own 
name on the back of such ballot as it is folded, and thereupon such 
judge, after holding up and showing the ballot to be so marked, shall 
immediately, in the presence of the voter offering such ballot, and 
keeping the same in plain view of the judges and clerks of elec- 
tion and of such voters and challengers as may be present, deposit 
into the slot of the ballot box the ballot thus received and marked, 
and no other; and thereupon the clerks of election shall enter upon 
the poll books in the proper column the name and proper successive 
number of each voter and his residence. The judges and clerks, and 
each of them, shall see to it that each ballot is endorsed, as aforesaid. 
If such person shall be challenged as disqualified, the person chal- 
lenging shall assign his reason therefor, and thereupon one of said 
judges shall administer to the person offering to vote an oath to 
answer all questions truthfully, and if he shall take such oath he 
shall then be questioned by said judge or judges touching such cause 
of challenge, and touching any other cause of disqualification, and 
he may also be questioned by the person challenging him in regard 
to his qualifications and identity; but if a majority of the judges are 
of the opinion that he is the person so registered and a voter quali- 
fied to vote at such party primary election, his vote shall then be re- 
ceived and deposited. But if the vote of a person apparently regis- 
tered be rejected by such judges, such person may afterwards pro- 
duce and deliver an affidavit to such judges, subscribed and sworn to 
by him before one of said judges, in which it shall be stated how 
long he has resided in any precinct within such primary district, and 
in the county and State; that he is a male citizen of the United 
States, and is a member of the political party holding such election, 
and is a duly qualified voter at such primary election in such dis- 
trict, and that he is the identical person so registered or so named. 
But the affidavit aforesaid shall be supported by an affidavit by at 
least two registered voters,, who are householders residing in such 
primary district, stating their own residence and that they know 
such person to be a member of the political party holding such pri- 
mary election, and that such person does reside at the place men- 
tioned, and has resided in such primary district and in such election 
precinct, county and State for the length of time as stated by such 
person, which affidavit shall also be subscribed and sworn to as the 
affidavit last aforesaid. Whereupon the vote of such person shall be 



ELECTIONS. 187 



received and entered as other votes. But the clerks having charge 
of such poll books shall state in their respective poll books the facts 
in such case and the name of the person challenging; and the affida- 
vits so delivered to said judges shall be preserved and returned to 
the officer entitled to receive them. Any registered voter of the party 
in the district may challenge. Blank affidavits of the character 
aforesaid shall be sent out to judges of all the districts, and the 
judges of election shall furnish the same on demand and administer 
the oath without criticism. Such oaths, if administered by any other 
officer than a judge of election, shall not be received: Provided, that 
no judge, challenger or other person shall in bad faith, or for pur- 
pose of delay, challenge or question registered voters of the district. 

§ 18. The judges of election shall permit each difPerent ticket of 
delegates to be represented by a challenger, chosen by a majority 
of those named for delegates on any particular ticket. Said chal- 
lengers shall be protected in the discharge of their duty by the 
judges of election and the police. Said challengers shall be per- 
mitted to remain within the polling-place in such a position as will 
enable them to see each person as he offers his vote; and said chal- 
lengers may remain within the polling-place throughout the canvass 
of the vote and until the returns are signed. The challengers shall 
be permitted to remain so near that they can see the judges and 
clerks are faithfully performing their duties. 

§ 19. The judges of election shall admit one or more policemen 
to be present in said polling-place at the time of such canvass. None 
but the officers of such primary election, challengers and peace officers 
shall occupy such polling-place except for the purpose of voting. 

§ 20. The judges of election shall have the power to administer 
and certify oaths required during the progress of any primary elec- 
tion held under this act, and they shall have authority to keep the 
peace, and to cause any person to be arrested for any breach of the 
peace or for any breach of election laws, or any interference with the 
progress of such election or of the canvass of the ballots, and it shall 
be the duty of all officers of the law present to obey the orders of 
such judges of election, and an officer making an arrest by the order 
of any judge for any violation of the provisions of this act shall be 
protected in making such arrest the same as if a warrant had been 
issued to him to make such arrest. 

§ 21. Immediately upon the closing of the polls the judges and 
clerks shall proceed to canvass the votes polled. If two or more 
ballots are found folded together and within each other, so as to 
appear to have been cast by the same person as one ballot, and the 
inner ballot or ballots are without the proper initial mark, as provided 
in this act, then all such ballots so folded together, including the 
outer one, whether such outer one is properly marked on the back 
thereof as provided in this act or not, shall, as nearly as may be, in 
the same condition as found, be marked "stuffed," and such ballots 
shall be void and shall not be counted, and the same shall be placed 
in an envelope marked "stuffed ballots," which envelope shall be 
sealed and preserved, together with the other ballots. If the ballots 



188 ELECTIONS. 



remaining shall be found to exceed the number of names entered on 
the poll lists, such judges and clerks shall reject the ballots, if any be 
found upon which the proper initial marks do not appear. If the 
number of ballots still exceeds the number of names entered on such 
poll list, the ballots remaining shall be replaced in the ballot box and 
the box closed and well shaken, and again opened, and one of the 
judges shall publicly draw out and destroy so many ballots unopened 
as shall be equal to such excess, keeping a note of the number of 
such ballots and noting the same on the statement of returns. Such 
judges and clerks shall then proceed to count, declare and record the 
votes in the following manner: The judges shall open all the ballots 
and place in separate piles those which contain the same names 
throughout. Each of the judges shall examine such separate piles 
and exclude from such piles any ballots which do not contain all the 
same names for all the same conventions. One of said judges shall 
then take one pile of the ballots which contain the same names and 
count them carefully, examining each name and convention on 
each of such ballots. Such judge shall then pass the ballots 
aforesaid to the judge sitting next to him, who shall count 
them in the same manner, and he shall then pass them to 
the third judge, who shall also count them in the same manner. 
The third judge shall then call the names of the persons named in 
such ballots and the conventions for which they are designated, to- 
gether with the number of votes for each so far as counted, and the 
poll clerks shall tally the number of votes for each of such persons 
on tally sheets. When such judges have counted through such first 
pile of ballots containing the same names, and when the poll clerks 
shall have tallied the votes for each of the delegates named in such 
ballots, they shall then take up the next pile of ballots containing 
the same names and shall count them in the same manner as last 
aforesaid. When the counting of each pile of ballots which contain 
the same names shall be completed the poll clerks shall compare 
their tallies together and ascertain the total number of ballots of 
that kind so canvassed, and when they agree upon the number, one 
of them shall announce it in a loud voice to the judges. The judges 
shall then canvass the other kind of ballots, which, in names or con- 
ventions, do not correspond with one another. They shall be can- 
vassed separately by one of the judges, sitting between two other 
judges, which one judge shall read to the clerks from each such bal- 
lot each name and the convention for which such name is designated, 
and the other judges looking at the ballot at the same time, and the 
poll clerks tallying the same. When all these ballots have been can- 
vassed in this manner, the clerks shall compare their tallies together 
and ascertain the total number of votes received by each person, and 
when they agree upon the number, one of them shall announce in a 
loud voice to the judges the number of votes received by each per- 
son. 

§ 22. Such canvass shall not be adjourned or postponed until the 
several statements hereinafter required to be made by the judges and 
clerks have been made and signed by them. Upon the completion 



ELECTIONS. 189 



of such canvass, the judges of election shall declare the result there- 
of, and such declaration shall be prima facie evidence of the result. 
The judges of election shall make three statements of all the votes 
cast at such primary election. Such statement shall be substantially 
in the following form:

Such statements shall show the whole number of votes given for 
each person, and the convention for which he is designated, and 
such judges shall certify that such statements are correct in every 
respect, and the clerks of election shall witness the same. Each 
such statement and each sheet of jDaper forming a part of such state- 
ment shall be subscribed by the judges and election clerks. If any 
judge or clerk shall decline to sign such statements, he shall state 
his reasons therefor in writing, and a copy thereof, signed by him- 
self, shall be enclosed with each statement. One statement, as afore- 
said, of the votes cast shall, after being made out as aforessid, be at- 
tached to the poll book; another statement as last aforesaid shall be 
enclosed in an envelope, properly endorsed and marked by such 
judges, and the same shall, by one of such judges, be addressed and 
carried to the office of the chairman of the central committee or man- 
aging committee of such political party, who filed the call or appli- 
cation for primaries, and the receipt of such chairman shall be taken 
therefor. Another statement shall be enclosed in an envelope, which 
shall then be securely sealed, and each of the judges shall write his 
name across every fold at which the envelope, if unfastened, could 
be opened. On the outside of such envelope shall appear substan- 
tially the following words: "Statement of all Republican (or Demo- 
cratic) votes cast at the Primary District of the 

, ward of the town of county of 

on the day of A. D. 19. . . ." 

The envelope last aforesaid shall be addressed to the person, officer, 
board, or board of election commissioners, by the general election 
law charged with the duty of receiving and preserving election re- 
turns, and one of the judges shall carry the same to such person, 
officer or board, as the case may be, and take a receipt for the same. 

§ 23. The judges of election of each primary district shall issue 
a certificate of election to each person who has received a plurality 
of all the votes cast for delegates or alternate delegates to any par- 
ticular convention from such primary district, and they shall deliver 
the same to the persons entitled thereto. In case two or more per- 
sons each receive the same and the highest number of votes cast for del- 
egates or alternate delegates to the convention, then the judges of elec- 
tion shall then and there decide by lot which person or persons shall be 
entitled to such certificates, and they shall issue to each such person 
so chosen such certificate, and make a note of such fact upon the 
statements provided for in this act. Such certificate of election shall 
be evidence prima facie of the right of the person therein named to 
a seat in the convention therein named. 

§ 24. Any person who shall wilfully, corruptly and falsely swear 
or affirm in taking any oath or affirmation prescribed by or upon any 
examination provided for in this act, and every person who shall 
wilfully and corruptly instigate, advise, induce or procure any person 
to swear or affirm falsely, as aforesaid, or attempt or offer so to do, 
shall be guilty of perjury or subornation of perjury, as the case may 
be, and shall, upon conviction thereof, suffer the punishment di- 
rected by law in cases of willful and corrupt perjury.

202 ELECTIONS. 



One registry book, which shall be denominated "public register" 
on the outside or on the first page, shall be prepared in such a man- 
ner as to contain only the two columns headed "residence" and 
"name." No other entries shall be made in the public registry, ex- 
cept the statements of the names and residences of persons regis- 
tered. Said board of registry shall then proceed as follows: 

First — They shall open the registry at eight o'clock a. m. and con- 
tinue in session until nine o'clock p. m. on the first day. One of the 
judges shall administer to all persons who shall personally apply to 
register the following oath or affirmation: 

"You do solemnly swear (or affirm) that you will fully and truly 
answer all such questions as shall be put to you touching your place 
of residence, name, place of birth, your qualifications as an elector, 
and your right, as such, to register and vote under the laws of this 
State." 

Second — Each of said clerks of election, and one of said judges of 
election, shall have charge of the registry books, and shall make the 
entries therein required by this act, and one of the judges shall ask 
the questions as to qualifications, and after he is through, either of 
the judges may ask questions. As many questions may be asked by 
any judge as may be deemed neceesary to fully determine the quali- 
fication of the applicant to register, and any answer that is deemed 
material and that is not in response to a question provided for on the 
register, may be stated in the column headed "remarks." One of the 
judges of election may, when necessary, relieve one of the clerks, 
from time to time, as necessity may seem to demand, in making en- 
tries in said book. 

Third — The name of every applicant shall be entered in such regis- 
try books, and all the facts shall be therein stated, as hereinafter 
provided, whether he be entitled to vote or not. If it shall be de- 
termined by the board that he is not a qualified voter in such pre- 
cinct, then an entry shall be made in the appropriate column, "No," 
and if qualified, an entry shall be made in the same column, "Yes." 

Fourth — Only such male persons of the age of twenty-one years, 
residing in such precinct, as apply personally for registration, shall 
be entered in such registers; but every applicant who would be 
twenty-one years of age on the day of the next election, if otherwise 
qualified, shall be entered on such registers. Every applicant who 
has commenced to reside in such precinct at least thirty days before 
such election shall be entered in such registry, and shall be marked 
"qualified" or "disqualified," as the case may be; but unless, on the 
day of election, he shall have resided for thirty full days in such elec- 
tion precinct, he can not vote therein, although otherwise qualified. 

Fifth — The headings to the registry book shall be so prepared that 
the registry shall be made alphabetically, according to the surname 
of each person applying, but it shall be arranged so that the resi- 
dences of such persons shall appear in the first column. The register 
shall be ruled, and one name shall be written on each line, but no 
names shall be written between the lines. The entries shall be as 
follows: 



ELECTIONS. 203 



First— Under the column "Residence" the name and number of the 
street, avenue or other location of the dwelling, if there be a definite

description of the place of such dwelling as shall enable it to be 
readily ascertained. If there shall be more than one house at the 
number given by the applicant as his place of residence, state in which 
house he resides. And if there be more than one family residing in 
said house, either the floor on which he resides, or the number, or 
location of the room or rooms occupied by him, whether front or rear; 
every floor below the level of the street or ground being designated 
as the basement; the first floor above such level being designated as 
the first floor and each floor above that as the second or such other 
floor as it may be. If there shall be a flat building or an apartment 
house at the number given, state the number of the flat or apartment, 
as the case may be, in which he resides.

cant respectively, as to "At Present Address," "Precinct," "County," 
"State," and "United States." 

Under the subdivision headed "At Present Address," the term of 
applicant's residence at the street and number given, and if that 
period is less than thirty days prior to the day of election, then the 
applicant shall state at what location in the same precinct he resided 
immediately prior thereto, and the length of time, which statement 
shall be entered in the column headed "Remarks." 

Fifth — Under the column "Age," the age of applicant. Under 
"Naturalized," the word "Yes,'' according to the fact stated. 

Sixth — Under the column "Date of Papers," the date of naturaliza- 
tion, if naturalized, or about the date. 

Seventh — Under the column "Court," the designation of the court

in case such person, though foreign born, has been made a citizen 
by act of Congress without taking out his naturalization papers. 

Ninth— Under the column "Qualified Voter," the word "Yes," or 
"No," as the facts shall appear, or be determined by a majority of 
the board of registry, it being, however, required of them to desig- 
nate as a qualified voter any male person who, if otherwise qualified, 
shall not, at the time of making application, be of age: Provided, 
the time when such applicant shall be of the age of twenty-one shall 
be subsequent to the date of his application, and not later than the 
day of election immediately following such time of applying; but no

was last registered, in the same city, village or town, and the month 
and year in which the election was held for which such registration 
was made. If the applicant has not previously been registered in 
said city, village or town, state "first registration." 

§ 5. Said boaxd of registry shall, by noon of the second day fol- 
lowing such registry, hang up the register, which shall be known as 
the public register, at the place of registration, which shall be ac- 
cessible to the public during all business hours, and the other two 
registers shall be returned to the board of election commissioners 
within the time aforesaid. Any voter of the ward, village or town

ward and shall have the right to challenge any applicant who applies 
to be registered. And when challenged, such applicant must make 
oath and sign an affidavit in writing as follows: 

"I do solemnly swear that I am a citizen of the United States, 
am. . . .years of age, and that I have resided in the State of Illinois 

for the period of , in the county of , for the

election of from No , street, and that I 

have never been convicted of any crime (or if convicted, state the 
time and when pardoned by the governor of any state)." 

This affidavit shall be signed and sworn to before one of such 
board of registry, and it shall be preserved and returned to the office 
of said election commissioners immediately. If said board of regis- 
try shall deem such affidavit sufficient, and if the board is convinced 
that such person is a qualified voter, then he must be admitted to 
such register as qualified. Blank affidavits of the character afore- 
said shall be sent out to the judges of all the precincts, and the 
judges of election shall furnish the same on demand and administer 
the oath without criticism. If any judge of election, poll clerk or 
other person, when such applicant has been challenged, shall desig- 
nate such person upon any of the registers as a qualified voter before 
he has made and filed with the board of registry the affidavit of the 
character aforesaid, such judge of election, poll clerk or other person 
shall, upon conviction thereof, bo adjudged guilty of a misdemeanor 
and shall be punished by imprisonment in the county jail for not 
less than ten (10) days nor more than sixty (60) days, or by a fine 
of not less than one hundred dollars nor more than one thousand

above such exempt wages shall be held by such employer to abide 
the event of the garnishment suit. If the amount of wages subject 
to garnishment shall not equal the costs of the garnishment, what- 
ever remains of costs shall be paid by the person bringing the gar- 
nishment proceedings, and judgment shall be entered therefor against 
him, and no judgment for any such deficiency of costs shall go 
against the wage earner or the defendant. No employer so served 
with garnishment shall in any case be liable to answer for any 
amount not earned by the wage earner at the time of the service of 
the writ of garnishment. Before bringing suit a demand in writing 
shall first be made upon the wage earner and the employer for the 
excess above the amount herein exempted, and a copy of such de- 
mand shall be left with him and with the employer, having endorsed 
thereon the time of service, at least twenty-four hours previous to 
bringing such suit. Such notice shall be filed with the justice, or clerk 
of the court, with the manner and time of the service of the same 
endorsed thereon, and the return duly sworn to before some officer 
authorized to administer oaths, before it shall be lawful to issue a 
summons in such case, or to require an employer to answer in any 
garnishee proceedings. Any judgment rendered without said de- 
mand being served upon the wage earner, and so proven and filed as 
aforesaid, shall be void. The excess of wages shall be held by the em- 
ployer, subject to garnishment by the creditor serving demand, for 
five (5) days after such service of demand.

lows: 

§ 1. A fraternal beneficiary society is hereby declared to be a 
corporation, society or association formed, organized or carried on 
for the sole benefit of its members and their beneficiaries, and not 
for profit. Each society shall have a lodge system, with ritualistic 
form of work and representative form of government, and may make 
provisions for the payment of benefits in case of disability and 
death, or of either, resulting from either disease, accident, or old age, 
of its members. Any such society, order or association may create, 
maintain and disburse a reserve fund in accordance with its consti- 
tution and by-laws. Such reserve fund, if any, shall represent cer- 
tain prescribed accumulations or percentage retained for the benefit 
of its members or their beneficiaries, and no part thereof shall be 
used for expenses, nor for any purpose except the payment of death 
and disability claims; the payment of such benefits in all cases 
being subject to compliance by the member with the contract rules 
and laws of society: Provided, the period in life at which payment 
of physical disability benefits on account of age may commence 
shall not be under seventy (70) years. The fund from which the 
payments of such benefits shall be made, and the fund from which 
the expenses of such society shall be defrayed, shall be derived from 
assessments or dues collected from its members. Payments of death 
benefits shall only be paid to the families, heirs, blood relations, 
affianced husband or affianced wife of, or to persons dependent upon 
the member: Provided, that a member having no wife or children 
living may, with the consent of the society, make a charitable insti- 
tution his beneficiary: Provided, however, that societies formed to 
include only the membership of any religious denomination may be 
permitted to provide that benefits under their certificates of mem- 
bership may be paid to religious or charitable institutions. The 
members of any religious denomination may incorporate under this 
act, and shall only be required to have a lodge or branch system 
and a representative form of government. 

Membership in such corporation shall be confined to the members 
of such religious organization. Commercial travelers shall also be 
allowed to incorporate under the provisions of this act, but member- 



224 INSURANCE. 



ship of such incorporation shall be confined to those actively engaged 
as commercial travelers, and officers, buyers or sellers for corpora- 
tions, associations and copartnerships, or individuals who employ 
commercial traveling men. Such commercial travelers' incorporation 
shall have a lodge or branch system and representative form of gov- 
ernment. All such societies shall be governed by this act, and shall 
be exempt from the provisions of all insurance laws in this State,. 
and no law hereafter passed shall apply to them unless they be ex- 
pressly designated therein: Provided, that this act shall not be con- , 
strued to prevent any society having a supreme lodge with separate 
jurisdiction, which by their law provides for a general relief or reserve 
fund, for making assessments to pay its pro rata share of such relief 
or reserve fund, or from receiving their pro rata of any such fund. 

§ 7. Any ten or more persons, citizens and voters of this State 
may associate themselves together for the purpose of forming a cor- 
poration under this act; for this purpose they shall make, sign and 
acknowledge, before any officer authorized to take acknowledgments 
of deeds in this State, a certificate of association, in which shall be 
stated the name or title of the proposed society; the object for which 
it was formed; the plan of doing business clearly and fully defined; 
the names of the board of officers or managers for the first year, and 
manner of selecting their successors; the limits as to age of appli- 
cants for membership, which shall not exceed sixty years, and that 
medical examinations are required, and that hona fide applications 
for membership have been secured from not less than five hundred 
persons, who have each made application for membership in such 
proposed society and have been duly examined and recommended 
by a reputable physician: Provided, societies that only provide for 
the insuring against bodily injury, disablement or death resulting 
from accident, shall not be required to have medical examinations of 
its members, and have each deposited with the parties asking such 
charter the sum of one advanced assessment on each one thousand 
dollars of insurance, or part thereof, provided for in the plan of or- 
ganization of such society as an advance assessment for mortuary 
purposes, which certificate of associations and applications, together 
with the certificate of some solvent bank or banks that all such ad- 
vanced mortuary funds are deposited therein to be turned over to the 
treasurer of a subordinate lodge or branch composed of such appli- 
cants, after the incorporation of such society, which certificate of 
association shall be filed with the insurance superintendent, accom- 
panied by a fee of ten dollars. If the insurance superintendent shall 
find, after careful examination, that the objects of the organization 
and the plan of doing business are fully and definitely set forth, and 
are clearly within the provisions of this act, and that the name or 
title is not the same, or does not so nearly resemble a title in use, as 
to have a tendency to mislead the public, he shall approve the same, 
and shall forthwith issue a certificate of organization of the society. 
Thereupon said society may proceed to transact business according 
to the plan of its organization.

Whereas, For the past five years said library has been occupying 
temporary quarters in Chicago, and the growth of the library and of 
its patronage by the public require its removal within the near fu- 
ture into a permanent, adequate and fire-proof building; and, 

Whereas, The interests and convenience of the public will be best 
subserved by placing said building on Grant Park, commonly called 
Lake Park or Lake Front Park, near the Chicago public library, in- 
asmuch as the two institutions now co-operate in subserving the in- 
terests and welfare of the public, and inasmuch as no other location

queathed by John Crerar for the erection of a colossal statue of

be occupied by said library building or its proposed extensions. 

§ 2. The John Crerar Library shall always remain a free public 
library, open at all times to the public subject to the reasonable reg- 
ulations established from time to time by its board of directors, trus- 
tees or managers; and it is hereby expressly provided that, if at any 
time the building herein authorized to be erected upon the premises 
described in this act shall cease to be maintained and used as a free 
public library, as aforesaid, then, in such event, the rights herein 
granted to the said The John Crerar Library shall cease and deter- 
mine, and the grant herein made shall become null, void and of no 
effect.

library purposes. 

§ 4. Such part of the land herein granted as shall not be occupied 
by said library building and its extensions, and said statue of Abra- 
ham Lincoln, shall be kept by said library at its own expense in 
suitable and attractive condition, similar to the manner in which 
other parts of Grant park, commonly called Lake park or Lake Front 
park are kept to the south of Monroe street, and shall at all times be 
free to the public subject to the reasonable regulations pertaining to 
the use of other parts of Grant park, commonly called Lake park or 
Lake Front park by the public. 

§ 5. The mayor and comptroller of the city of Chicago shall, by 
virtue of their office, be and become members of the board of direc- 
tors, trustees or managers of The John Crerar Library, and proper 
provisions shall be made, as soon as practicable, in the by-laws or

shall establish the educational qualifications of the applicant, and

pharmacists, shall be computed from the date of registration as ap- 
prentice. The board of pharmacy shall furnish proper blanks for 
this purpose and issue a certificate of registration as a registered 
apprentice upon the payment of two dollars.

new his registration, should he within five years thereafter wish to re- 
sume the practice, upon the payment of said fees. Registered assistants,

Section 1. Be it enacted hy the People of the State of Illinois j. 
represented in the General Assembly : That section one of "An act 
to prohibit the use of certain oils in coal mines, and penalties for in- 
fraction of same," approved April 'dO, 1895, in force July 1, 1895, be,.,

a pure animal or vegetable oil, or other oil as free from smoke as a^ 
pure animal or vegetable oil, and not the product or by-product of" 
resin, and which has been inspected and complies with the following: 
test, shall- be used for illuminating purposes in the mines of this- 
State. All such oils must be tested at 60 degrees Fahrenheit, The- 
specific gravity of the oil must not exceed 24 degrees Tagliabue. The 
test of the oil must be made in a glass jar one and five- tenths inches 
in diameter by seven inches in depth. If the oil to be tested is be- 
low 45 degrees Fahrenheit in temperature, it must be heated until it 
reaches about 80 degrees Fahrenheit; and should the oil be above 45 
degrees and below 60 degrees Fahrenheit, it must be raised to a tem- 
perature of about 70 degrees Fahrenheit, when, after being well shakenj, 
it should [shall] be allowed to cool gradually to a temperature of 60 
degrees Fahrenheit, before finally being tested. In testing the- 
gravity of the oil, the Tagliabue hydrometer must be, when possibles- 
read from below, and the last line which appears under the surface 
of the oil shall be regarded as the true reading. In case the oil 
under test should be opaque, or turbid, one- half of the capillary at- 
traction shall be deemed and taken as the true reading. Where the- 
oil is tested under difficult circumstances, an allowance of one-half 
degree may be made for possible error in parallax before condemning^ 
the oil for use in the mine. It shall be the duty of the State inspec- 
tors of mines, in the several districts of this State, to make the in- 
spection provided for in this section before any such oil is sold for 
use in any mine in this State. All oil sold to be used for illuminat- 
ing purposes in the mines of this State shall be contained in barrels^ 
or packages branded conspicuously with the name of the dealer, the 
specific gravity of the oil, the date of shipment, the date and place 
of inspection, and the name of the State inspector of mines making: 
the said inspection. It is provided, however, that any material that 
is as free from smoke and bad odor and of equal merit as an illumin- 
ant as a pure animal or vegetable oil may be used at the pleasure of 
mine operators and miners.

tax, not heretofore specifically appropriated by law, which may now or 
hereafter be authorized and directed to be levied upon the taxable prop- 
erty in any such town, whether the same be known as "boulevard and 
park tax" or otherwise, a sum sufficient to meet the interest upon 
such bonds as it may accrue, and to provide a sinking fund for the 
purpose of paying the principal of such bonds as they shall mature or 
become due, according to the provisions of this act. 

§ 4. Any and all bonds which shall be issued in accordance with 
the provisions of this act shall contain the condition that, upon the 
expiration of five (5) years after the date of such bonds, and upon

bonds as may be required to absorb the sinking fund hereinbefore 
provided; and the principal of the bonds so selected shall become due 
and payable at the date of the next installment of interest maturing 
on the several bonds so selected from time time, and shall cease to 
bear interest after they severally become due and payable by reason 
of such selection. Such board of park commissioners, immediately 
after making such selection, shall make and sign, in duplicate, a state- 
ment of the result thereof, and shall file one copy thereof in the office 
of the town clerk of such town and the other copy shall be filed in the

ions of this section after he shall have had notice and reasonable 
proof that such driver is addicted to drunkenness, he shall forfeit, at 
the rate of $5 per day, for all the time during which he shall there- 
after have kept any such driver in his employment, to be sued by any 
persons and collected in any court having competent jurisdiction; and 
the court may allow a portion of said penalty, not exceeding $25, to 
be retained by such complainant as a compensation for his services 
and expenses, the balance to be paid into the county treasury. 

§ 3. If any driver while actually employed in driving any carriage 
or other conveyance shall be guilty of intoxication to such a degree 
as to endanger the safety of the passengers in the carriage or other 
conveyance, or any other traveler, it shall be the duty of the owner 
of such carriage, on receiving written notice of the fact, signed by 
any one of the said passengers, and certified by him on oath, forth- 
with to discharge such driver from his employment; and every such 
owner who shall retain, or have in his employ, within thirty days 
after the receipt of such notice, any driver who shall have been in- 
toxicated, shall forfeit at the rate of $5 per day for the time during 
which he shall keep any such driver in his employment, after receiv- 
ing such notice, to be sued for and applied as directed in section two 
(2) of this act. 

§ 4. No person driving any carriage or other conveyance upon 
any turnpike, road or public highway within this State, with or with-

prisoned not exceeding sixty days, at the discretion of the court. 

§ 5. It shall not be lawful for the driver of any carriage or other 
vehicle used for the purpose of conveying passengers for hire to 
leave the horses attached thereto, while passengers remain therein, 
without making such horses fast with sufficient halter, rope or chain, 
or by placing the lines in the hands of some other person, so as to 
prevent their running, or if any such driver shall offend against the 
provisions of this section, he shall forfeit the sum of $20, to be re- 
covered by action to be commenced within six months, and unless 
the amount of such recovery be paid forthwith, execution shall be 
immediately issued therefor. 

§ 6. The owner of every carriage or other conveyance running 
upon any turnpike, road or public highway, for the convenience of

person, and that whenever the act occasioning such injury or damage 
be willful, negligent or otherwise, in the same manner as such driver 
would be liable. Any driver of any mail stage coach or any other 
vehicle for the conveyance of passengers, wilfully offending against 
the provisions of. this act shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, 
and, on conviction thereof, shall be fined not exceeding $300, or im- 
prisoned not exceeding four months. 

§ 7. The term "carriage," as used in this act, shall be construed 
to include stage coaches, wagons, carts, sleighs, sleds and every other

or either of them. 

§ 8. Nothing contained in this act shall interfere with or effect 
[affect] any law concerning hackney coaches or carriages, bicycles 
or automobiles, in any of the cities of this State, nor interfere with 
or affect the law or ordinance of any such city for the licensing or 
regulating such coaches or carriages, bicycles or automobiles. Jus- 
tices of the peace shall have jurisdiction in all cases arising under 
this act where the penalty does not exceed $200. 

§ 9. All roads within this State, which have been laid out in pur- 
suance of any law of this State, or the Territory of Illinois, or which 
have been established by dedication or used by the public as a high- 
way for twenty years, and which have not been vacated in pursuance 
of law, are hereby declared to be public highways. 

§ 10. No new road shall be opened by order of the county board 
unless the same shall be applied for by at least fifteen voters resid- 
ing within five miles of the road proposed to be laid out or altered. 
Such applicants shall deposit with the county clerk a sufficient sum 
of money to pay the viewing. If the report of the persons appointed 
to view such road be in favor of establishing the road, the money so 
deposited shall be returned to the persons who deposited the same; 
but if the report be unfavorable, the expense of the view shall be 
paid out of the money so deposited. 

§ 11. It shall be the duty of the county board, upon the presenta- 
tion of the petition for the location or relocation of the road, to in- 
quire into the manner in which the same was gotten up, if signed by 
the individuals through whose land the same may pass, as far as prac- 
ticable, and require proof and be satisfied that the notices required 
by law of such intended applica'tion have been given, in view that 
the owners of land which may be damaged shall have notice thereof. 

§ 12. When a new road shall have been applied for, as aforesaid, the 
county board shall, if in their opinion the public good and conAenience 
require it, appoint three disinterested persons to view the ground pro- 
posed for the same; and if, after such [view, the] viewers shall believe 
the road applied for to be necessary, taking into consideration the 
expense of constructing the same and its utility to the public, they 
shall proceed to locate and establish the same on the nearest and 
most eligible route, from point to point given, having due regard to 
private property, causing the same to be surveyed, designating its 



ROADS AND BKIDGES. 279 



course through prairies and improved land by fixing stakes in the 
ground, and through timbered land by marking trees, and shall make 
report thereof to the next session of the county board; but after the 
view, if they deem such road unnecessary or improper to be made, 
they shall report their opinions to that effect to the next session of 
said board. 

§ 13. Viewers in locating a road shall ascertain, as far as practic- 
able, where damages will be claimed, and report the names of indi- 
viduals claiming the same to the county board at the time of making 
their report. It shall be incumbent on such owners of property, by 
themselves or agents, to inform the board at the next term at which 
the road viewers shall report their claims for damages; and no dam- 
ages shall be allowed, unless claims be made to the county board as 
aforesaid, or to the supervisor, commissioner or superintendent, ap- 
pointed to open the road, as provided by law. After a road shall be 
open, and no claims for damages being set up, the State or county 
shall not be liable for any damages whatever, 

§ 14. Whenever it shall be presented to the county board, by peti- 
tion of fifteen voters, that a public road established by said board or 
any part thereof, is useless or burdensome, the said board, upon a 
sufficient sum of money being deposited with the clerk to pay the ex- 
penses of a review (such money to be returned if the road shall be 
declared useless,) shall appoint three suitable and disinterested per- 
sons to view the same, who shall report to said board, at the next 
term after such appointment, whether such road be useless and bur- 
densome, together with their reasons for such opinion; and the 
county commissioners may then order said road to be vacated if, in 
their opinion and discretion, they shall deem such order proper: 
Provided, that no petition praying for the establishment or vacation 
of a public road shall be received by said board unless the same pe- 
titioners, or some of them, shall have given twenty days' public notice 
of such application, by a written notice, posted up in the most public 
place in each road district through which the road shall pass, and a 
like notice particularizing the route and important points, on the 
door of the court house and of the county clerk's office, should it be 
kept in a separate building. 

§ 15. Whenever a new road shall be located the county board 
shall immediately cause the supervisors of each district through 
which such road shall pass to be notified of such location; and it 
shall be the duty of such supervisors to open such road within their 
respective districts, and keep the same in repair, so far as the labor 
of the persons bound to work on said road shall enable them, and if 
such labor be insufficient, the county commissioners shall cause the 
same to be cut out and opened at the expense of the county when- 
ever, in their opinion, the funds of the county will justify such ex- 
pense, and, after being so opened, the same shall be kept in repair by 
the supervisors, as in other cases: Pi'ovided, that no new road shall 
be considered located nor opened until the cost of condemning the 
land for such road shall have been ascertained, as provided in section 
twenty-three of this act, and paid.

§ 16, Roads for private and public use, of the width of three rods 
or less, may be paid [laid] out from the dwelling or plantation of an 
individual to any public road, or from one public road to another, or 
from a lot of land to the highway, on petition to the county 
board by any person directly interested, setting forth in 
wriling a description of the road, names of the owners of the lands, 
if known, and if not known it shall be so stated, over which the road 
is to pass, and the point at which it is to terminate. The petitioner 
or petitioners shall also give to each person residing in the county 
over whose land such cartway is desired to pass at least twenty days' 
notice of the intention to present such petition, and shall also, twenty 
days before the time for the presentation of such petition, post such 
notice on the court house door in such county. The serving and 
posting of such notice may be proven by affidavit of the person 
serving or posting the same, or by other legal evidence. There shall 
also be deposited with the county clerk a sufficient sum of money 
to pay for the viewing and surveying such cartway. The county 
board may, after hearing the objections to such petition, if any, ap- 
point three disinterested freeholders to view the same, and if such 
viewers, or a majority of them, shall be of opinion that the prayer of 
such petitioner or petitioners should be granted, they shall cause a 
survey and plat of such cartway to be made by a competent surveyor, 
who shall report such survey and plat, giving the courses and dis- 
tances, and specifying the land over which the said cartway is to 
pass. And if, after hearing the objections to such report, if any, the 
board shall be of the opinion that such cartway is necessary and 
right, an order shall be made establishing the same: Provided, 
that if any owner of land shall object to the opening of such cartway, 
the same shall not be opened by the person or persons desiring the 
same until such owner objecting shall be paid all the damages to be 
sustained by the opening thereof, and in case the parties can not 
agree on the amount of damages, they shall be ascertained by a jury 
as in other cases, and the damages being paid on final decision, 
or a sufficient sum deposited with the county clerk for that pur- 
pose, the petitioner or petioners, their heirs and assigns, shall have 
the right to open such cartway, and the same shall be kept open 
for the public use: Provided, that if such cartway shall not be 
opened by the petitioner or petitioners, their heirs or assigns, the 
full width, within two years from the time of making the order 
for the location of the same, such order shall be regarded as rescinded: 
And provided, also, that if such petitioner or petitioners, their heirs 
or assigns, shall fail to keep such cartway in sufficient repair for use 
as such, or shall suffer the same to become useless; or when such 
road or cartway no longer be necessary, then the right of way thereto 
shall revert to the owner or owners of the freehold. And the board 
may, upon the petition of such owner or owners, enter an order va- 
cating such cartway. An appeal may be taken from the final order 
of such board, either in establishing or vacating such cartway, within 
such time and upon such terms as the board may direct.

§ 17. Whenever any person or persons desiring a change or re- 
location of any State or county road now located, notice of such in- 
tended application shall be given by putting up advertisement, writ- 
ing, at least one in each road district through which said road shall 
pass, and on the court house door, twenty days previous to session 
of the county board to which application shall be made; and on 
the petition of thirty-five qualified voters living immediately in 
the vicinity of such road, the board shall appoint three viewers 
to examine and make the necessary relocations. They shall care- 
fully view the road as located and the grounds for the proposed 
route, and being of the opinion that the public good requires the 
alteration, in view of obtaining a more suitable place to erect a 
bridge over a stream, wind a hill, avoid a swamp, expensive work, 
or where the road greatly damages an individual and can be va- 
ried without material damage to the public, in such cases alterations 
may be made; and a majority of said viewers being of that opinion, 
they shall cuse a survey and relocation to be made, returning to the 
county board a plat with the course and distances of the road as es- 
tablished. But, if they consider an alteration not necessary, they 
shall so report, and the board may confirm and accept the report, or 
take such further action thereon as to them may seem right. In 
like manner, any State road now established may be considered use- 
less or burdensome, on notice or petition, view and report to that 
effect, as required in this section in case of an alteration, the same 
may be annulled and vacated. 

§ 18. When it shall become necessary to have a State or county 
road now located and established altered, or relocated, or vacated at 
a county line, or a new road laid out, the same being petitioned for 
and notice given as required in the preceding section, the same shall 
be agreed upon by reviewers from each county, to be appointed by 
the counties immediately interested; and no road shall be altered at 
a county line or ekewhere unless a majority of the viewers appointed 
agree on such change or alteration: Provided, that no application 
shall be acted upon or viewers appointed, as contemplated in the pre- 
ceding section, unless the petitioners deposit money sufficient to pay 
the reviewers in case an unfavorable report be made, to be refunded 
should the road be located, altered or vacated as petitioned for. In 
case of a disagreement in the location or alteration of any road cross- 
ing a county line by the county authorities, either county may appeal 
to the circuit court of their county, which court shall hear and deter- 
mine the case, grant a review, appoint reviewers, and make such 
order therein as shall seem right in the establishment of the road 
in dispute. 

§ 19. In all cases where a petition is presented to the county 
board praying for a change, alteration, location or vacation of a 
county road as provided for in this act, if there shall be remon- 
strances presented against granting the same, it shall be the duty of 
said board to give due consideration both to the petition and remon- 
strance, and grant or refuse the prayer of said petitioners as [in] their 
discretion shall be just and proper.

§ 20. All the roads shall be surveyed, and a plat with the courses 
and distances thereof, returned with the report of the viewers to the 
board of county commissioners, which shall be recorded and filed. 
The county board, on the return of the report and plat, shall de- 
termine and establish on record the width of the road, making the 
main leading roads four rods wide, and no other roads less than fifty 
feet, except where a less width is prayed for in the petition, in which 
case the board of county commissioners may fix the width at less 
than fifty feet, but not less than thirty. 

§ 21. In the location and alterations of all roads it shall be the 
duty of the viewers to make the same as direct as the ground and 
circumstances will allow, particularly the main leading roads. Pre- 
vious to entering upon their duties they shall be sworn before some 
officer authorized to administer oaths that they will faithfully, im- 
partially and to the best of their judgment discharge the duties 
incumbent on them as road reviewers under the law and appointment 
of the board. 

§ 22. County surveyors may act as road reviewers in their re- 
spective counties without further qualification, and may administer 
the proper oath of office to other road reviewers who may be asso- 
ciated with them or otherwise. 

§ 23. In cases where a public road or cartway shall have been, or 
may be, authorized by law to be laid out or constructed in any part 
of this State not under township organization, and the same is re- 
quired to pass over land belonging to any company, corporation or 
individual, and the owner or o'wners'are incapable in law of contract- 
ing, or do not agree with the commissioners, superintendent or sur- 
veyor authorized to construct the said road on the amount 
of damages resulting to said owner or owners by reason of the open- 
ing and construction of said road, it shall be lawful for the county 
commissioners, supervisor or superintendent to make application to 
thenearest justice of the peace in the precinct where said land is situ- 
ated for a jury to assess damages; said justice commanding him to sum- 
mon such owner or owners to appear before him at a time and place to be 
specified in said summons, not less than five nor more than fifteen 
days from the date thereof, for the purpose of having such damages 
assessed. Said summons shall be under the hand of said justice, and 
shall be served as now or hereafter may be provided by law for the 
service of summons in civil action before justices of the peace. At 
the same time said justice shall issue a venire to said constable, com- 
manding him to summon a jury of six freeholders of said county to 
appear before him on the day when said summons is returnable, to 
assess the said damages. On the return day of said summons (unless 
good cause is shown for a continuance,) the said justice shall proceed 
to impanel said jury, who shall be sworn to faithfully and impartially 
assess and report the damages which such owner or owners may sus- 
tain-by reason of construction of said road. The said jury shall hear 
any competent evidence in regard to said damages offered by either 
party, and the impaneling of said jury and the proceedings before 
said justice and jury shall be in all respects as in other civil cases be- 



ROADS AND BRIDGES. 283 



fore justices of the peace, except that on demand of either party the 
said jury shall personally examine the land damaged. The same jury 
may assess the damages of any and all of the owners of lands over 
which the road shall pass, if agreed by the parties. The jury shall 
return to said justice a written verdict, specifying the amount of dam- 
ages to be paid to the owner or owners, and the justice shall enter the 
same, together with the other proceedings, upon his docket, and shall 
also enter judgment upon his docket. In case the owner or owners of 
such lands is a minor, lunatic or insane person, the summons shall 
also include the name of the guardian or conservator, if there be one. 
If the owner is a non-resident of the county, then the said justice, 
upon the return of said summons "not found," shall continue the said 
case for not more than thirty days, and shall post three notices in 
three of the most public places in said precinct, and one upon the 
door of the court house of said county, which notice shall give the 
time and place when the assessment hereinbefore provided shall be 
made, and shall be posted at least twenty days before the time fixed 
for said assessment. Said justice shall also forward a copy of said 
notice, by mail, to said owner or owners, if his or their residence be 
known to-him. Appeals may be taken to the circuit court from the 
assessment of juries, and the judgment entered thereon by either 
party, in the same manner as appeals are or may be taken from jus- 
tices of the peace in civil cases. All cases of public roads under the 

provisions of this act shall be docketed: "The county of 

vs (the owner or owners of the land) ," and when- 
ever the county board shall desire to take an appeal, the chairman or 
presiding officer of said county board shall execute the bond for and 
on behalf of the county. In case of cartways or private roads, all 
cases shall be docketed, the petitioners or plaintiffs, and the owner 
or owners of the land as defendant, and the plaintiffs shall execute 
bond on appeal. Upon payment or tender of the amount of damages 
awarded by the verdict of the jury to the owner or owners of land 
damaged, the guardian, if such owner is a minor, the conservator, if 
such person is an insane person, or to the county treasurer, if the 
owner is a non-resident of the county, or incapable in law to receive 
said money, the said road may be opened by the proper authority, and 
the title of the land vested in the public for the uses specified in the 
petition: Provided, that in case of an appeal, the opening and con- 
struction of the road shall not be delayed thereby, nor shall the title 
of the land vest in the public, for the use specified in the petition, 
until payment or tender shall be made, as above provided, of the 
amount of damages which shall be awarded by the final judgment of 
the court. The costs of all proceedings before the justice shall be 
borne by the county in case of a public road, and by the person peti- 
tioning in case of a private road or cartway. If the owner of the land 
appeal, and the assessment made by the jury be not increased in the 
circuit court, then such owner shall pay all costs of appeal. If the 
county or petitioner for a cartway appeal from any assessment by jury 
before a justice of the peace, and the county or such petitioner do not 
reduce said assessment, the county or such petitioner shall pay all 
costs of appeal: Provided, that it shall be in the power of the county

board or petitioner, in case of a cartway, after final judgment, in case 
of a public road or cartway, to abandon all proceedings in and about 
the opening of said road or cePftway, if they or he deem the damages 
too great. 

§ 24. If any person shall obstruct any public or private road by 
falling a tree or trees across the same, or by encroaching upon or 
fencing up the same (except for the purpose of raising a hedge, in 
which case not more than one-fourth of the width of the road shall 
be occupied for such purpose,) or by placing any other obstruction, 
or depositing any garbage or other offensive matter therein, he shall 
forfeit for any such offense a sum not exceeding $10, and a sum 
not exceeding $8 for every day he shall suffer such obstruction to 
remain after he shall have been ordered to remove the same by any 
supervisor, county commissioner or justice of the peace; and if any 
person shall purposely destroy or injure any bridge or causeway, or 
remove any of the timber or planks thereof, or destroy or deface any 
guide board, post or mile stone, or any notice put up by order of the 
county board, or any public or private road, or dig any drain or ditch 
across a public or private road, such person so offending shall be in- 
dicted or sued before a justice of the peace, and on conviction shall 
be fined in a sum not Isss than $5 nor more than $100, except 
bridges, which shall be double the value thereof, and for burning a 
bridge, to be punished agreeably to the criminal code: Provided, 
however, that this section shall not be construed to extend to any 
person who shall lawfully cut down any timber for rails, firewood or 
other purposes, and who shall immediately remove the same out of 
the road, nor to any person through whose land a road shall run who 
shall dig a ditch or drain across such road and keep the same in good 
repair. 

§ 25. If any person or persons shall obstruct any public or pri- 
vate road in the manner provided in section 24 of this act, the pen- 
alty provided for in said section may be recovered either by an in- 
dictment or in an action of debt, before any justice of the peace of 
the county in which the offense was committed, which action may be 
brought upon the complaint or information of any person who may 
complain for the use and benefit of the county. 

§ 2H. If any person shall impair any public or private road by 
plowing or turning a current of water so as to saturate or wash the 
same, he shall forfeit and pay a fine, for the first offense $5, and for 
the second offense $10, and at that rate for every additional offense: 
which fines shall be collected either before a justice of the peace or 
by indictment in the circuit court, as now provided by law. 

§ 27. If any person shall ride, lead or drive any wagon, carriage, 
dray, cart or other vehicle or conveyance, or any horse, mare, mule or 
ox or other animal over, on or across any public bridge used by the 
public within the limits of this State faster than a walk, he shall 
forfeit and pay for each offense the sum of $5, which penalty shall 
be collected either before a justice of the peace or by indictment in 
the circuit court, as is provided by the last preceding section: Pro-

^ 28. The county boards of the several counties in this State not 
under township organization shall have, and are hereby vested with, 
general superintendence over the public roads within their respective 
counties, repair and improve same by contract or otherwise, and are 
hereby authorized to cause new roads to be located and made and to 
alter and vacate public roads within their respective counties in the 
manner in this act provided and pointed out. 

§ 29. The county boards in counties not under township organ- 
ization, of each county, shall at their December session, or as soon 
thereafter as may be, in each and every year, lay out and divide their 
respective counties into such road districts as they may deem con- 
venient and proper, defining accurately the boundaries of said dis- 
tricts; and they shall appoint one supervisor in each district, who 
shall serve one year and continue in office until a successor shall be 
appointed. 

§ 80. It shall be the duty of the county clerk in counties not 
under township organization to make out and deliver to the sherifp 
written notices of [ to] all supervisors, as aforesaid, within ten days after 
such appointment has been made, informing them of their appoint- 
ment, describing the bounds of their respective districts and the 
roads therein; and the said sheriff shall immediately deliver the said 
notices to the persons to whom the same shall be directed respect- 
ively; and if any such supervisor shall refuse to accept said appoint- 
ment, the sheriff shall return the said notice to the clerk who issued 
the same, noting such refusal on the back thereof. But if the said 
supervisor shall agree to accept the same, such supervisor shall, 
within fifteen days thereafter, return to the county clerk a list of the 
names of all persons residing within the road district liable to be 
taxed for road purposes ; and the said sheriff shall notify the said 
clerk of such acceptance. And the sheriff shall, in all cases, make 
return of acceptance or refusal within twenty days after the delivery 
to him of the notice aforesaid. For any failure on the part of the 
clerk to make out and deliver to the sheriff any one of the notices 
required by this section he shall be fined in the sum of $10; and the 
sheriff shall incur the same penalty for a failure to deliver any one 
of the said notices in the manner and within the periods herein pre-

such return of taxpayers, unless the county board shall order, at a 
regular meeting of the said board: Provided, further, that any board 
of county commissioners are hereby authorized and empowered to 
open and keep in good repair all public highways in their respective 
counties, and to build and keep in repair all bridges, either by taxa-

they may elect. 

§ 31. When any person shall refuse to accept the appointment as 
supervisor, or after having accepted the same shall fail to execute 
bond and to perform the duties thereof, he shall be fined $5, to be 
appropriated to road purposes: Provided, that the county board

The county board shall have power, at any time, to remove from 
ofiice any supervisor who shall fail or refuse to perform his duty, and 
all vacancies shall be filled at the session of the board at which any 
removal shall be made or any vacancy occur. 

§ 32. It shall be the duty of each supervisor to cause all public 
roads within his district to be kept well cleared, smooth and in good 
repair, causing all stumps to be cut lov^^, so as to afford at all times a 
free and safe passage to wagons and other carriages along said road, 
to prevent thistles, burdock, cockle burrs, gympsum and all other 
noxious weeds, from growing upon the public highways, and to ex- 
tirpate the same, as far as practicable; to cause bridges and cause- 
ways to be made whenever the same shall be necessary, and to keep 
the same in repair, and cause to be erected and kept in repair, at the 
forks or crossing place of every public road, a post and guide boards,

it shall be the duty of the supervisor to cause such obstruction to be 
removed, and to have such bridges or causeways rebuilt or repaired: 
Provided, that the cost thereof shall not exceed $10, and if the cost 
of such work shall be estimated by said supervisor to exceed $10, 
then he shall report such obstruction or damages to any one or more 
of the county commissioners, whose duty it shall be immediately to 
cause such obstruction to be removed, or such bridge or causeway to 
be rebuilt or repaired, as the case may be, either by ordering the 
supervisor to hire laborers and teams for that purpose, or by making 
a contract with some fit person or persons, as they may deem best; 
and all moneys required to carry any of the provisions of this section 
into efPect shall be paid out of the county treasury on the order of

district on or before the first day of April in each year, and assess at 
such meeting against each person upon such list a sum not less than 
one dollar nor more than five dollars as a poll tax for highway pur-

notices to be posted in at least three public places in such district, 
stating the time when and the place where he will be in such road 
district for the purpose of collecting poll tax, which notices shall be 
posted at least fifteen days before the time fixed for the collection of 
such poll tax, and said notices shall be deemed a sufficient demand 
for said poll tax. It shall be the duty of the supervisor to make out 
and present to the commissioners at their regular meeting in June of 
«ach year a list of those who have not paid their poll tax and the rea- 
sons, if any were rendered, why such person or persons have not paid.

unable to pay their poll tax, but are willing to labor upon the roads 
of such district, the commissioners may permit such poor person to 
work out his poll tax upon the roads of the district at one dollar per 
day. The supervisor shall, within twenty days after the regular 
meeting in June of each year, make a complaint, under oath, before 
any justice of the peace of his county, against each person who has 
not paid his poll tax, unless good cause be shown why such complaint 
should not be made, and such justice of the peace shall thereupon 
issue his warrant to any constable of his county against such person 
complained against, and shall, upon his arrest, proceed to hear and 
determine the cause according to law, and in case the issue be found 
against the defendant, he shall be fined in a sum not exceeding $25 
and not less than double the amount which shall appear to be due 
from him for poll tax, and he shall stand committed to the county 
jail until fine and costs are fully paid: Provided, that such person 
so committed may be discharged from custody upon paying the costs 
of suit and entering into bond, with good security in double the 
amount of such fine, to be approved by the justice of the peace, con- 
ditioned that such delinquent shall, within thirty days from the date 
thereof, discharge such fine in money or road labor under the direc- 
tion of the supervisor of such road district. All moneys collected 
under the provisions of this act shall be paid to the supervisor of the 
district, and by him reported to the commissioners at their next reg- 
ular meeting.

collected and received for the maintenance of roads and bridges, and 
for road and ditch damages, and keep a correct account thereof, 
and do and perform such other duties as may be required by the 
county commissioners. He shall execute a bond in double the amount 
of moneys likely to come into his hands, with good and sufficient se- 
curity for all moneys coming into his hands by virtue of this act, con- 
ditioned that he will faithfully discharge his duties as such supervisor; 
that he will honestly and faithfully account for all moneys coming 
into his hands as such supervisor under the direction of the county 
commissioners. Before receiving these funds he sha^ll give this bond 
to the county, to be approved by the commissioners, and filed in the 
office of the county clerk with such approved [approval] endorsed 
thereon: Provided, that if, from any cause, the commissioners shall 
deem the bond so given insufficient, they may require a new bond: 
And, provided further, that the commissioners shall have the right 
to fix any other sum to be required in any new bond so given.

peace of the county in which such road is situated for a summons, 
directed to any constable of said county, commanding him to sum- 
mons the said owner to appear before the said justice at a time and 
place specified in such summons, not less than five nor more than 
fifteen days from the date thereof, for the purpose of having the

the question of uniting, or of disconnection and annexation : Pi'O- 
vided, that no territory shall be taken from one such town and at the 
same time united to another unless such territory be at least one- 
half (^) square mile in extent, and contain at least one thousand 
(1,000) inhabitants. Where it is proposed to unite two or more con- 
tiguous towns under this section, said petition shall be signed by at 
least one-fourth of the voters of each of the towns sought to be 
united: Provided, that if in any town the number of voters exceeds 
four hundred (400) at the last general election, then by one hundred

the territory from one town and annex the same to a contiguous 
town, such petition shall be signed by at least one-fourth of the 
voters of the territory sought to be disconnected from one town and 
annexed to the contiguous town, or if such territory contains more 
than four hundred (400) voters at the last general election, then by

ing," or "against uniting," or "for annexation," or "against annex- 
ation," respectively, to be canvassed in like manner as votes 
for county officers and returned to the county board, who 
shall cause the votes to be canvassed. If a majority of voters 
of each town voting upon the question of union at such election 
shall vote for uniting such towns, such county board, at the 
meeting of which such vote is canvassed, or at the next succeeding 
meeting, shall proceed to declare such towns united, and give the

towns in office at the time of such union shall continue in and dis- 
charge the duties of their respective offices during the remainder of

vassed, or at the next succeeding meeting, shall proceed to declare 
such territory disconnected from the town of which it formerly

to be annexed: Provided, that the officers of the town to which such 
territory is annexed shall thereupon constitute the town officers of

such territory. Where the alteration or division or union of towns ne- 
cessitates a change in any school district, it shall be the duty of the 
officers having charge of the school property therein to proceed to 
make an adjustment of the property and debts thereof, as in the case 
of the alteration of school districts. After the declaration by the 
county board of the union or annexation herein provided for, it shall 
be the duty of the officers specified in this article to meet for the pur- 
pose of adjusting the assets and debts cf said towns. If the town or 
part thereof which may be joined to an incorporated city under this 
section is also an incorporated town or village or part of the same, 
and such incorporated town or village has property or debts, then the 
property and debts and rights of such incorporation, town or village 
shall be adjusted by the same officers and in the same manner as pro- 
vided in this article: And, provided further, that all ordinances for 
the regulation or restraint of the sale of intoxicating liquors which 
shall be in force in the whole or any part of said annexed territory at 
the time of said annexation shall continue in force therein and shall 
not be repealed except upon the petition of one hundred (100) house- 
holders within said prohibited portion, and a vote for such repeal of 
a majority of all the aldermen of the common council of the city to 
which such territory shall be annexed, including the vote therefor of 
the aldermen in whose ward said prohibited district shall then wholly 
or in part lie: Aoid, provided further, that when the county board of 
commissioners wish to consolidate a town in which the corporate au- 
thorities are authorized to assess, levy and receive taxes for park pur- 
poses, such county board shall first submit to the legal voters of the 
town at an election to be held on the Tuesday after the first Monday 
in November the question whether such town shall be established 
and continued as a park district for park purposes. And when such 
park shall be located in such town and also in another town adjoin- 
ing thereto, the question shall be submitted to the voters of each 
of such towns in which a park shall be located whether such town 
shall be established and continued as a park district, at an election 
to be held on Tuesday after the first Monday of November. The 
tickets shall be written or printed "For park district" or "Against 
park district." And if a majority of the votes cast at the election on 
that subject in each town shall be for a park district, then the park 
district shall be deemed as established, and the park commissioners 
appointed and authorized by law shall thereupon be the corporate 
authorities of such park district and shall have and exercise all the 
power and authority and perform all the duties enjoined by law on 
the corporate authorities of such town or towns for the establishment 
and maintenance of the park and for the discharge of all debts, 
bonds, obligations and contracts of such town for park purposes. 
The mode of conducting such election, the returns thereof and the 
notices therefor, the canvassing and contesting the same, shall be as 
nearly as may be as in the case of county officers. If such park 
district is established as aforesaid, then the county may proceed to 
consolidate said town with another town or towns or change the 
boundaries thereof, but if such park district is not established as

aforesaid, then there shall be no authority in the county board to con- 
solidate such town or towns with another town or towns: Pro- 
vided, that where lands lie wholly outside of and not adjoining the 
limits of an incorporated city or village, whenever a majority of the 
land owners residing within such territory shall petition the county 
board to take such territory from one town and unite it with another 
town, the county board shall have full power to disconnect such terri- 
tory from one town and annex it to another town, as prayed for in 
such petition, without regard to the extent of territory or number of 
inhabitants, but no town shall be reduced in extent of territory to 
less than sixteen square miles.
