An Act to prevent the introdudion and spread in Illiiiois of foul brood 

among bees, providing for the appointment of a State Inspector of 

Apiaries and prescribing his powers and duties. 

Whereas, The disease known as foul brood exists to a very consider- 
able extent in various portions of this State, which, if left to itself, will 
soon exterminate the honey-bees; and. 

Whereas, The work done by an individual bee-keeper or by a State 
inspector is useless so long as the official is not given authority to inspect 
and, if need be, to destroy the disease when found ; and. 

Whereas,, There is a great loss to the bee-keepers and fruit growers 
of the State each year by the devastating ravages of foul brood. 



AGRICULTURE AND HORTICULTURE. 



Section 1. Be it enacted hy the People of the State of Illinois, repre- 
sented in the General Assembly: That the Governor shall appoint a

years, and until his successor is appointed and qualified, and who may 
appoint one or more assistants, as needed, to carry on the inspection 
under his supervision. The inspector of apiaries shall receive for each 
day actually and necessarily spent in the performance of his duties the 
sum of four dollars to be paid upon bills of particulars certified to as 
correct by the said State Inspector of Apiaries, and approved by the 
Governor. 

§ 2. It shall be the duty of every person maintaining or keeping any 
colony or colonies of bees to keep the same free from the disease known 
as foul brood and from every contagious and infectious disease among 
bees. All bee-hives, bee-fixtures or appurtenances where foul brood or 
other contagious or infectious diseases among bees exists, are hereby 
declared to be nuisances to be abated as hereinafter prescribed. If the 
inspector of apiaries shall have reason to believe that any apiary is 
infected by foul brood or other contagious disease, he shall have power 
to inspect, or cause td be inspected, from time to time, such apiar}'', and 
for the purpose of such inspection he, or his assistants, are authorized 
during reasonable business hours to enter into or iipon any farm or 
premises, or other building or place used for the purpose of propagating 
or nurturing bees. If said inspector of apiaries, or his assistants, shall 
find by inspection that any person, firm or corporation is maintaining a 
nuisance as described in this section, he shall notify in writing the 
owner or occupant of the premises containing the nuisance so disclosed 
of the fact that such nuisance exists. He shall include in such notice 
a statement of the conditions constituting such nuisance, and order that 
the same be abated within a specified time and a direction, written or 
printed, pointing out the methods which shall be taken to abate the 
same. Such notice and order may be served personally or by depositing 
the same in the postoffice properly stamped, addressed to the owner or 
occupant of the land or premises upon which such nuisance exists, and 
the direction for treatment may consist of a printed circular, bulletin 
or report of the inspector cf apiaries, or an extract from same. 

If the person so notified shall refuse or fail to abate said nuisance in 
the manner and in the time prescribed in said notice, the inspector of 
apiaries may cause such nuisance to be abated, and he shall certify to the 
owner or person in charge of the premises the cost of the abatement and 
if not paid to him within sixty days thereafter the same may be recov- 
ered, together with the costs of action, before any court in the State hav- 
ing competent jurisdiction. 

In case notice and order served as aforesaid shall direct that any bees, 
hives, bee-fixtures or appurtenances shall be destroyed and the owner 
of such bees, hives, bee fixtures or appurtenances shall consider himself 
aggrieved by said order, he shall have the privilege of appealing within 
three days of the receipt of the notice to the county court of the county 
in which such property is situated. The appeal shall be made in like 
manner as appeals are taken to the county court from judgments of 



ANIMALS. 



justices of the peace. Written notice of said appeal served 
by mail upon the inspector of apiaries shall operate to stay 
all proceedings until the decision of the county • court, which may, 
after investigating the matter, reverse, modify or affirm the order of the 
inspector of apiaries. Such decision shall then become the order of the 
inspector of apiaries, who shall serve the same as hereinbefore set forth 
and shall fix a time within which such decision must be carried out. 

§ 3. The inspector of apiaries shall, on or before the second Monday 
in December of each calendar year, make a report to the Governor and 
also to the Illinois State Bee Keepers' Association, stating the number of 
apiaries visited, the number of those diseased and treated, the number 
of colonies of bees destroyed and the expense incurred in the performance 
of his duties. 

§ 4. Any owner of a diseased apiary or appliances taken therefrom, 
who shall sell, barter or give away any such apiary, appliance, queens 
or bees from such apiary, expose other bees to the danger of contracting 
such disease, or refuse to allow the inspector of apiaries to inspect such 
apiary, or appliances, shall be fined not less than $50.00 nor more than 
$100.00.

Preamble. l § 2. Emergency 

§ 1. Appropriates $135,000. | 

(House Bill No. 312. Approved June 2, 1911.) 

An Act maJdng an appropriation for a water supply for the Anna 

State Hospital. 

Whereas, During the months of March, April and May, 1910, an 
epidemic of typhoid fever appeared among the employes and patients 
of the Anna State Hospital, causing approximately forty (40) deaths 
in excess of the normal rate; and. 

Whereas, Analysis of the then water supply at the hospital con- 
demned the same for drinking purposes, the same being polluted so 
that since that time all the water used in said hospital for drinking 
and culinary purposes must be rendered harmless at considerable ex- 
pense, and even then it is impossible to prevent patients at times from 
drinking of the water in its polluted state thereby incurring the risk 
of a further epidemic of typhoid fever; and. 

Whereas, The wells now sunk being seven in number, the last of 
which was sunk and equipped under an appropriation for water supply 
made by the General Assembly in 1909, have not procured a supply 
either adequate or fit for the uses of said hospital, such wells having 
exhausted the source of supply which falls far short of that needed by 
the hospital; and. 

Whereas, The further sources of water supply in sufficient quanti- 
ties and healthful condition on the institution grounds, the vicinity 
the.reof, or elsewhere on the uplands in the country about said hospital 
will not prove adequate to the indispensable needs of such hospital, as 
shown by investigation thereof and that an examination of the sources 
of water supply in the Mississippi river bottom, distant about nine 
miles from the hospital, shows an adequate supply of pure water acces- 
sible at that point sufficient not. only for the present, but for all future 
needs of such hospital, and such supply being of that vital character for 
the life, safety and care of the inmates, officers and employes of the in- 
stitution so as to render such water supply imperative to the continued 
uses of such hospital as an institution for the care and treatment of the 
insane; now, therefore. 

Section 1. Be it enacted hy the People of the State of Illinois, repre- 
sented in the General Assembly: That the sum of one hundred thirty- 
five thousand (135,000) dollars, or so much thereof as may be neces- 
sary, be and the same is hereby appropriated to the Board of Adminis- 
tration for the purposes of installing, equipping and putting into opera-

the inauguration of a representative form of government in the State

county of Madison, including the following bounds: Beginning on 
the Mississippi, to run with the second township line above Cahokia 
(near East St. Louis) east until it strikes the dividing line between 
Illinois and Indiana territories; thence with said dividing line to the 
line of Upper Canada; thence with said line to the Mississippi; and 
thence down the Mississippi to the beginning; and appointing the 
house of Thomas Kirkpatrick in Edwardsville, Illinois, to be the seat 
of justice of said county; and in said year the people of this common- 
wealth erected Fort Eussell (near Edwardsville, Illinois), as a fort 
from which to conduct offensive and defensive operations in the war 
with Great Britain; and, 

Wpieeeas, These momentous events are of great interest to all the 
people of Illinois Territory and of the State of Illinois, and deserve 
proper official recognition by the State of Illinois; and, 

Whereas^ Steps are being taken for a centennial celebration of these 
historical events, and as the principal feature of such celebration it is 
desired that a monument be erected and dedicated to mark a century 
of progress of this great commonwealth as a reminder to future genera- 
tions of the struggles, progress and results obtained by our sturdy 
forefathers; and. 

Whereas, By reason of the fact that the first seat of justice of Madi- 
son county was located and is still retained at Edwardsville, Illinois, 
and the first Territorial Governor, Honorable Ninian Edwards, who 
designated said county, and Governor Edward Coles were residents of 
said city of Edwardsville, and said city is the logical location for such 
a memorial; and. 

Whereas, On September 14, 1912, a century will have gone by, and

Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, repre- 
sented in the General Assembly: That there be and hereby is appro- 
priated the sum of five thousand dollars ($5,000.00), or so much thereof

anniversary of the inauguration of a representative form of government

delegate to Congress by popular vote; the establishment of the county 
of Madison, and the seat of justice therein, and the erection of Fort 
Eussell, as a base of military operation in the War of 1812 ; said monu-

of Madison county, in the city of Edwardsville, Illinois, or at some 
other suitable* place in said city.

a bond with the Secretary of State for such sum as shall be required of 
him by said Secretary of State, and in such form and with such securi- 
ties as may be approved by the Governor of the State. The board shall 
adopt rules and regulations not inconsistent with this Act to govern 
its proceedings, and also a seal; and the secretary shall have the care 
and custody thereof; and he shall keep a record of all the proceedings 
of the board, which shall be open at all times to public scrutiny, and

the board, shall be entitled to an examination for determining his or 
her qualifications. All examinations shall be made directly by said 
board, or a committee of two members delegated by the board, and 
due notice of the time and place of the holding of such examinations 
shall be published, as in the case provided for the publication of the 
rules and regulations thereof. The examination shall have special refer- 
ence to the construction of buildings, and a test of the knowledge of 
the candidate of the strength of materials and of his or her ability to

sional work of an architect, and in the duties of a supervisor of mechan- 
ical work on buildings, and should also seek to determine his or her 
knowledge of the laws of sanitation as applied to buildings. If the 
result of the examination of any applicant shall be satisfactory to a 
majority of the board, under its rules, the secretary shall, upon au 
order of the board, issue to the applicant a certificate to that effect, and

dent and secretary, and sealed with the seal of the board. All papers 
received by the secretary in relation to applications for license shall 
be kept on file in his office, and a proper index and record thereof shall 
be kept by him.

of this Act shall remain in full force until revoked for cause, as here- 
inafter provided. Any license so granted may be revoked by unani- 
mous vote of the State Board of Examiners of Architects for gross in- 
competency or recklessness in the construction of buildings, or for dis- 
honest practices on the part of the holder thereof, but before any license 
shall be revoked such holder shall be entitled to at least twenty days' 
notice of the charge against him, and of the time and place of the 
meeting of the board for the hearing and determining of such charge. 
And on the cancellation of such license it shall be the duty of the secre- 
tary of the board to give notice of such cancellation to the county clerk 
of each county in the State in which the license has been recorded, 
whereupon the clerks of the counties shall mark the license recorded 
in his office canceled. After the expiration of six months from the 
revocation of a license, the person whose license was revoked may have 
a new license issued to him by the secretary upon certificate of the 
Board of Examiners, issued by them upon satisfactory evidence of 
proper reasons for his reinstatement and upon payment to the secre-

cretion by order duly entered by such court or judge thereof, require 
the attendance of witnesses, the production of books and papers and 
giving of testimony before such board, and upon refusal or neglect to 
so appear and testify and produce such books and papers as commanded 
by such order of court or of any judge thereof, may compel, by an at- 
tachment for contempt of court or otherwise, the attendance of such 
witnesses, the production of such books and papers and the giving of 
such testimony before such board, in the same manner as production 
of evidence may be compelled before said court. Every person, who, 
having taken an oath or made affirmation before said board, shall wil- 
fully swear of [or] affirm falsely, shall be guilty of perjury and upon

bly make such children, in whole or in part, in after life, public charges. 

§ 2. Said institute shall be known as the Illinois Surgical Institute 
for Children; and by such name shall be and constitute a corporation, 
under the laws of the State of Illinois. 

§ 3. The purpose and object of said institute shall be to receive, 
treat and nurse such children whose parents or guardians may be finan- 
cially unable to provide surgical treatment, as may be physically de-

shall, upon the order of said county judge, furnish said child with 
transportation from the place where said child may so reside to the 
place of said institution and return. The order admitting said child 
shall, when made, be filed with the superintendent of said institute, 
and said child shall be admitted thereto in the regular order of filing as 
soon thereafter as said institute can provide room, care and attendance 
therefor. Said child, if deemed feasible, shall be treated, nursed in 
said institute, until a recovery is effected, or it becomes apparent that 
further treatment will be of no avail, whereupon it shall be discharged 
and returned to its former place of residence.

ness of the location, water supply, drainage, and agriculture, and con-

tution, and physicians and surgeons who may be required to treat the

such city have not fixed a ratio of representation and formed the dis- 
tricts or wards, at the time above specified, the same may be done by 
any subsequent board of aldermen; but all official acts heretofore done 
and ordinances heretofore passed by any board of aldermen elected at 
large by the legal electors of any such city on the minority representa- 
tion plan, shall be held and taken by all courts in this State to be of 
as much validity and binding force as if they had been elected from 
wards or districts. 

After any city shall have adopted minority representation as provided 
in this Act then at any subsequent time on petition of the legal votes 
in number to one-eighth the number of legal votes cast at the next pre- 
ceding general city election, the city council shall cause the question 
of minority representation to be submitted to the legal voters of said 
city, and the ballots shall be in form as provided in this section : Pro- 
vided, that no such question of representation shall be submitted more 
than once in every two years. If a majority of the votes cast at such 
election shall be "against minority representation in the city council" 
the aldermen of such city shall be elected as otherwise provided for in 
this Act.

vided, that any such city, so taking possession of the lands and sub- 
merged lands as hereinbefore mentioned, does so solely and only for a 
public purpose ; and it is hereby provided that if by reason of any 
thing in this Act granted or any filling or work done in connection 
therewith by any city, or from natural causes any land shall be formed 
or made, that such land shall not be regarded as an accretion to any

such city, but that the same shall be owned by the people of the State 
of Illinois, and no such city shall by the provision of this Act require 
any right, title or interest in or to any such land. 

If any such city shall at any time sell or attempt to sell or otherwise 
bargain, grant or dispose of the title to such lands or any part thereof 
then as to such lands the rights of such city shall cease and determine 
and the right to occupy and possess the same shall thereupon cease and 
the possession of all of said lands shall thereupon revert to 
the State of Illinois and all rights of any such city in and to the 
same or to any improvements thereon shall thereupon cease and end. 
None of said lands shall be leased for any private purpose, but only in 
conformity with the provisions of this Act. 

§ 5. Such city shall keep all accounts in connection with the con- 
struction of or the operation and maintenance of said harbor facility or 
improvement mentioned in this Act, separate and distinct from any 
other accounts kept by such city, and they shall include therein all

ashes or waste shall be dumped into any public waters nearer than four 
(4) miles from any intake of Avater for public consumption.

slip, levee or other harbor facility or improvement mentioned in this 
Act, it becomes necessary to affect any of the rights of riparian owners 
along any public waters, or to take any property belonging thereto, 
such city shall have the right to acquire same by condemnation, but 
nothing in this Act shall give any such city the right to give compen- 
sation to any alleged riparian owner who is not in fact the owner of 
said land, or who has unlawfully acquired title thereto by possession or 
by making or filling the same, and such city shall make a careful 
scrutiny of the title of each and every person so claiming compensation, 
to the end that no person shall receive compensation for lands or rights 
which already belong to the State of Illinois. 

§ 8. In the construction, maintenance or operation of any of the 
public utilities mentioned in this Act, such city shall, in all respects 
be subject to the laws of the State of Illinois applying or relating to any 
such utilities with like force and effect as a person, firm or private 
corporation constructing, maintaining or operating a similar utility, 
except in so far as is herein expressly otherwise provided. 

§ 9. All Acts or parts of Acts in conflict with this Act are hereby 
repealed.

1872, in force July 1, 1872, be amended by adding to article 3 thereof 
a new section to be known as section 2a, to read as follows: 

§ 2a. Whenever it is shown by any national. State, school or city 
census, when the same is officially published, that any city organized 
under the provisions of this Act is divided into a greater number of 
wards and has elected a greater number of aldermen than are authorized 
by section 2 of this article of this Act, the said divisions into wards and 
the election of said aldermen shall, nevertheless, be valid and binding, and 
the said aldermen shall be deemed to legally hold their said offices for, 
during and until the next annual city election for city officers to be 
thereafter held in accordance with law; and all Acts of the city council 
of such city, and all ordinances by it passed, during the said period, if 
in other respects in compliance with law, are hereby declared legal and 
valid. In all cases when any such city is bv such census found to con- 
tain more wards than it is entitled to by law, it shall be the duty of 
the city council of such city by ordinance to redistrict such city into as 
many wards only as the same is entitled to, not less than sixty days be- 
fore the time fixed by law for the holding: of the next succeeding general 
election for city officers, and at said election there shall be elected only 
such number of aldermen as, with the aldermen theretofore elected, and 
whose term of office shall not expire with such election, as that the num- 
ber of aldermen of the said city shall not exceed the number of aldermen 
which the said citv is by law entitled to. If, in such redistricting of such 
city into wards, the terms of two aldermen, who reside in any such new 
ward, shall not expire with such succeeding election, no election for 
aldermen shall be held in such ward, at such election, but such holdover 
aldermen shall, until the next succeeding general election for city offi- 
cers to be held thereafter, be held and deemed in law to be and constitute 
the aldermen for such new ward. At such next succeeding election two 
aldermen shall be elected in such new ward, one for the term of one year 
and one for the term of two years : Provided, that in all cases, contem- 
plated by this Act, if a census shall be taken pursuant to law and the

result of which shall have been published not less than sixty days prior 
to the time fixed by law for the holding of the general election for city 
officers thereafter in such city, it is made to appear that such city has 
regained a population sufficient to entitle it to the original number of 
wards and aldermen, then, and in such case, no new division into wards 
and reduction of the number of aldermen therein, shall be necessary. 

§ 2. Whereas, By the national census taken in the year 1910, it is 
made to appear that certain cities in this State are divided into more 
wards, and have at the general election for city officers held in the year 
1911, elected a greater number of aldermen than they are, by law, en- 
titled to, whereby a question has arisen as to the validity of such elec- 
tion, therefore, an emergency exists, and this Act shall be in force from 
and after its passage.

tain territory to procure pure water. 
Section 1. Be it enacted hy the People of the State of Illinois, repre- 
sented in the General Assembly: Whenever a petition signed by at least 
five per cent of the voters resident in each city, town or village, of two or 
more incorporated cities, towns or villages, located in counties bordering 
on Lake Michigan, asking that said cities, towns or villages be organized 
as a water district under this Act, shall be filed in the office of the county 
clerk of the county in which the greater portion of the population afl'ected 
thereby resides, it shall be the duty of the county judge of said county 
to consider the boundaries of any such proposed district, whether the 
same shall be described in such petition or otherwise. Such petition shall 
be addressed to said county judge and shall contain a definite descrip- 
tion of the territory to be embraced in such district and the name of 
such proposed water district : Provided, however, that no territory shall

be included in any municipal corporation formed hereunder, which is 
not situated within the limits of a city, incorporated town or village; 
no territory shall be included within more than one district organized 
for the purpose for which districts may be organized under this Act, and 
no city, incorporated town or village having over fifteen thousand 
(15,000) inhabitants shall be included in such district as originally 
organized, but shall have the right to join said district as hereinafter pro- 
vided. 

The said petition may also provide that such proposed district shall 
be divided into five wards, v/ith a definite description of the territory to 
be embraced in each of such wards: Provided, the population in no one 
of such wards shall exceed one-fourth of the population of the whole 
district: And, provided, that the territory in each of said wards shall 
be composed of territory in as compact form as practicable. It shall be 
the duty of the trustees at least every five years to re-apportion said dis- 
trict, so that the respective wards shall conform as nearly as practicable 
with the above requirements as to population, shape and territory. In 
the event that any new territory shall be annexed to said district, the 
said district including said annexed territory shall be re-divided by the 
trustees into wards before the next election of trustees. 

Notice shall be given by such county judge of the time and place 
where a hearing will be had on said petition, by a publication inserted 
in one or more newspaper [s] published in such county, or if more than 
one county within each county, at least twenty days prior to such hear- 
ing. At such hearing the county judge shall preside and all persons 
residing in such proposed district or owning land situated therein shall 
have an opportunity to be heard touching the location and boundary 
of such proposed district and the location and boundary of such proposed 
wards and to make such suggestions regarding the same and the county 
judge after hearing statements, evidence and suggestions, shall determine 
whether the territory mentioned in said petition is so located that it 
can be joined advantageously to such territory and shall fix and deter- 
mine the locations and boundaries of such proposed district, and the loca- 
tion and boundaries of such proposed wards, and for that purpose and to 
that extent, may alter and amend such petition, but shall not so amend 
it as to include it as to include any city having a population of 15,000 
or more. After such determination the county judge shall submit to the 
legal voters of the proposed district the question of the organization and 
establishment of the proposed district, as determined by him, at the next 
general election for county and State officers, notice of the submission 
of which question shall be given by said judge at least twenty days prior 
thereto, by publication in one or more newspapers published in such 
proposed district, or if no newspaper is published in said district then 
in one or more newspapers published at the county seat of the county in 
which such proposed district lies, such notice to specify briefly the pur- 
pose of such election, with a description of such proposed district. Each 
legal voter resident within such proposed water district shall have the 



192 CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 



right to cast a ballot at such election with the words thereon "For 
Water District" or "Against Water District." The ballots so cast shall 
be received, returned and canvassed in the same manner and by the same 
officers as is provided by law in the case of ballots cast for county officers. 
The county judge shall cause a statement of the result of such election to 
be spread upon the records of the county court. If a majority of the 
votes cast upon the question of the incorporation of the proposed sani- 
tary district shall be in favor of the proposed district, such proposed 
district shall thenceforth be deemed an organized sanitary district under 
this Act, and shall be a body corporate and politic under the name pro- 
posed in said petition and by such name may sue and be sued, contract 
and be contracted with, acquire and hold real and personal property and 
exercise all the powers in this Act conferred. 

Any city, town or village may become annexed to such water district 
in like manner, as near as may be, as is provided in and by an Act of 
the General Assembly of the State of Illinois, entitled, "An Act to pro- 
vide for the annexation for township high schools of any school town- 
ship or part of such township, not having an established township high 
school, to any adjacent school township having an established township 
high school," approved and in force April 22, 1897. 

§ 2. All courts in this State shall take judicial notice of the existence 
of all water districts organized under this Act. Upon the organization 
of any water district under this Act the county judge shall call an elec- 
tion to elect officers and cause notice thereof to be posted or published 
and perform all other acts in reference to such election in like manner, 
as nearly as may be, as he is required to perform in reference to the 
election of officers in newly organized cities under the provisions of an 
Act entitled, "An Act to provide for the incorporation of cities and 
villages," approved April 10, 1872. The county judge shall fix not less 
than one place for holding said election in each organized city, village or 
town lying in such district. 

§ 3. In each water district organized under tliis Act, there shall be 
elected at the first election five trustees, one from each ward, one of whom 
shall hold his office till the next general election for county officers, one 
until one year after said next general election, one till three years after 
said next general election and one till four years after said next general 
election, and until their successors are elected and qualified. At the first 
meeting of the trustees after such election the trustees elected shall be 
divided by lot into five classes, the first class shall be continued in office 
until the next general election for county officers, the second class until 
one year after said next general election, the third class until two years 
after said next general election, the fourth class until three years after 
said general election, the fifth class until four years after said general 
election. At every regular county election held after such first election 
there shall be elected one trustee who shall hold his office for five years 
and until his successor shall be elected and qualified to succeed him, 
whose term of office shall expire that year.

belonging to the district, or which shall, be sold for taxes or assessments, 
or by virtue of legal process at the suit of said district. 

§ 4. The trustees elected in pursuance of the foregoing provisions of 
this Act shall constitute a board of trustees for the district by which 
they are elected, which board of trustees is hereby declared to be the 
corporate authorities of such district, and shall exercise all the powers 
and manage and control all the affairs and property of such district. 
Said board of trustees shall have the right to elect a president, secretary,

employment of such other clerks, and other employes as said board may 
deem necessary for such municipality, who shall hold their respective 
offices during the pleasure of the board, and shall give bond when and 
in such form as may be required by said board. Said board may pre-

employes of said sanitary district: Provided, however, that the salary 
of the president of said board shall in no case exceed the sum of fifteen 
hundred dollars ($1,500.00) per annum and the salary of the other 
members of said board shall not exceed five hundred dollars ($500.00) 
per annum : And, provided, further, that the amount received by any 
attorney shall not exceed the sum of three thousand dollars ($3,000.00)

necessary ordinances, orders, rules, resolutions and regulations for the 
proper management and conduct of the business of said board of trus- 
tees and of said corporation and for carrying into effect the objects for 
which such water district is formed. 

§ 5. All ordinances making any appropriations shall, within one 
month after they are passed, be published at least once in a newspaper 
published in such district, or if no such newspaper of general circulation 
is published therein, by posting copies of the same in three public places 
in the district; and no such ordinance shall take effect until ten days 
after it is so published, and all other ordinances, orders and resolutions 
shall take effect from and after their passage unless otherwise provided 
therein. 

§ 6. All ordinances, orders and resolutions, and the date of publica- 
tion thereof, may be proven by the certificate of the clerk, under the 
seal of the corporation, and when printed in book or pamphlet form, and 
purporting to be published by the board of trustees such book or pamphlet 
shall be received as evidence of the passage and legal publication of such 
ordinances, orders and resolution [s], as of the dates mentioned in such 
book, or pamphlet, in all courts and places without further proof. 

§ 7. The board of trustees of any water district organized under this 
Act shall have power to provide a sufficient supply of pure water for 



—13 L

such district and to provide therefor, may lay out, establish, construct, 
maintain and operate machinery, buildings, filters, wells, intakes, cribs, 
conduits, aqueducts, pipes, ditches, tanks, reservoirs, hydrants, meters, 
and other elements of a complete water works system necessary or ap- 
propriate for such purpose. Such machinery, buildings, filters, intakes, 
wells, cribs, aqueducts, conduits, ditches, and reservoirs may extend or 
be located outside of the territory included within such sanitary district 
and the rights and powers of said board of trustees over the portion 
of such machinery, buildings, filters, intakes, wells, cribs, aqueducts, 
conduits, pipes, ditches and reservoirs lying outside of such district will 
be the same, as those vested in said board over that portion of such 
machinery, buildings, filters, intakes, wells, cribs, aqueducts, conduits, 
pipes and ditches within the said district. 

Said trustees in carrying out the powers and duties hereinbefore con- 
ferred upon them may construct and maintain buildings, machinery, 
conduits and aqueducts; may lay and maintain pipes, drains and wires; 
may carry and conduct any aqueduct, conduit, pipe or wire under 
or over any water course or any railroad, street or other way in such a 
manner as not unnecessarily to obstruct or impede travel thereon; may 
dig out any such road, street or way, and lay, maintain and repair 
aqueducts, conduits, pipes, wires and other works beneath the surface 
thereof conforming to any reasonable regulations made by the city 
councils of cities and boards of trustees of towns or villages respectively 
wherein such works are performed, and restore, so far as practicable, any 
such road, street or way to as good order and condition as the same was 
in when such digging was commenced; and in general may do any other 
act or thing necessary or proper for carrying out the powers and duties 
conferred upon them by this Act: Provided, said board shall save 
harmless the several cities, villages and towns within which any road, 
street or way is dug up by them against all damages for injuries result- 
ing from a defect or want of repair in any road, street or way, caused 
by such digging up or by constructing, laying, maintaining, or repairing 
any aqueduct, conduit, pipe, wire, or other works therein. 

Said trustees shall secure and protect the purity of said water sup- 
ply; shall on application furnish water to any city, town or village in 
said district that at the time of application owns its water pipe system; 
shall on application furnish water to any water company owning the 
water pipe system in any city, town or village in said district at the 
same rates and on the same conditions as nearly as may be as water is 
furnished to cities, towns and villages; and may from time to time fur- 
nish water to any cit}'', village, town, water company, corporation or in- 
dividual on payment of such rates as said trustees may determine. Said 
trustees shall furnish said water to the city, town, village, company, cor- 
poration or individual, by delivering the same into a main water pipe, 
reservoir or tank of the city, town, village, company, corporation, or in- 
dividual under sufficient pressure for use without local pumping, unless 
delivered in some other manner by mutual agreement between the par- 



CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 195 



ties interested; and shall have the direction and control of the connec- 
tions between the district and local systems. The pressure hereinbefore 
provided for need not exceed a pressure at the point of delivery sufficient 
to maintain water in a stand pipe at a height of one hundred feet. But 
the trustees may enter into an agreement to furnish direct extra pres- 
sure into the mains of the purchaser in case of fire. 

§ 8. Such water district may acquire by purchase, condemnation, or 
otherwise any .and all real and personal property, right of way and priv- 
ilege, either within or without its corporate limits that may be required 
for its corporate purpose [s] : Provided, all moneys for the purchase 
and condemnation of any property shall be paid before possession is 
taken, or any work done on the premises damaged by the construction 
of such intakes, pipes and ditches, and in case of an appeal from the 
court in which such condemnation proceeding shall be pending taken by 
either party, whereby the amount of damage is not finally determined, 
the amount of the judgment in such court shall be deposited with the 
county treasurer of the county in which said judgment shall be rendered 
subject to the payment of such damages on orders signed by such judge, 
whenever the amount of damages is finally determined; and when not 
longer required for such purposes, to sell, convey, vacate and release 
the same. 

§ 9. The corporation may borrow money for corporate purposes, and 
may issue bonds therefor, but shall not become indebted in any manner, 
or for any purpose, to an amount in the aggregate to exceed 'five (5) per 
centum of the valuation of taxable property therein, to be ascertained by 
the last assessment for State and county taxes previous to the incurring 
of such indebtedness. The bonds herein provided for shall not run for 
a longer period than twenty years. 

§ 10. Said trustees shall have power to fix rates to' be charged by 
them for water furnished to the cities, villages, towns in said district 
and said rates shall be as nearly the same to each eity, town or village as 
conditions will warrant. Out of the money received on account of water 
delivered by said trustees they shall pay so far as they can all operating 
expenses, cost of maintenance, interest on bonds, provide such sinking 
fund for replacement and renewals as they shall deem best, and redeem 
bonds which shall mature. If there is not sufficient money from such 
rates so collected for the purposes in this section set forth, the balance 
shall be provided for by a general tax on property taxable in said district. 

§ 11. All contracts for work to be done by any district organized 
under this Act, the expense of which will exceed five hundred dollars, 
shall be let to the lowest responsible bidder therefor, upon not less than 
sixty days public notice of the terms and conditions upon which the 
contract is to be let having been given by publication in a newspaper 
of general circulation published in the county in which said district is 
located. Such notice shall further state where the specifications for such 
improvements are to be found. Proposals or bids may be made either 
for such work as a whole or for such specified sections thereof. All pro- 



196 CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 



posals or bids offered shall be accompanied by cash or by a check, paya- 
ble to the order of the president of the board of trustees 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 a 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. The board of trustees shall have power and author- 
ity to reject any and all bids, and to re-advertise. If a bid or proposal 
shall be accepted the check accompanying such accepted proposal or bid 
shall be retained in possession of the president of said board until the 
contract for doing said work has been entered into, whereupon said certi- 
fied check shall be returned to said bidder. • But if the bidder whose 
bid shall have been accepted fails, neglects or refuses to enter into a 
contract, within a reasonable length of time, to perform said work as 
herein provided, then said cash accompanying his bid or said certified 
check and the amount therein mentioned shall be declared to be forfeited 
to said district and shall be collected by it and paid into its general 
funds. All cash or certified checks accompanying all rejected bids shall 
be returned to the proper parties. The board of trustees shall have 
power to require a bond from any person entering into a contract to do 
said work conditioned for the full performance of such contract and may 
require from such contractor as part of his contract a suitable guar- 
antee of the work to be done by him under his contract. Any bonds 
forfeited may be prosecuted, and the amount due thereon collected and 
paid into the funds of said district. 

§ 12. The board of trustees may levy and collect taxes for corporate 
purposes upon property within the territorial limits of such sanitary 
district, the aggrearate amount of which in any one year shall not ex- 
ceed half of one per centum of the value of the taxable property within 
the corporate limits as the same shall be assessed and equalized for the 
county taxes for the year in which the levy is made. Said board shall 
cause the amount to be raised by taxation in each year to be certified 
to the county clerk on or before the second Tuesday in August as pro- 
vided in section one hundred and twenty-two of the general revenue law. 
All taxes so levied and certified shall be collected and enforced in the 
same manner and by the same officers as State and county taxes, and 
phall be paid over by the officer collectinsr the same to the treasurer of 
the sanitary district, in the manner and at the time provided by the gen- 
eral revenue law. 

The treasurer shall, when the moneys of the district are deposited 
with any bank or other depositary, reauire such bank or other depositary 
to pay the same rates of interest for such moneys deposited as such bank 
or other depositary is accustomed to pay to depositors under like circum- 
stances, in the usual course of its business. All interest so paid shall be 
placed in the sreneral funds of the district, to be used as other moneys 
belonging to such district raised by general taxation or sale of water.

§ 13. Whenever the board of trustees of any water district shall pass 
an ordinance for the making of any improvement which such district is 
authorized to make, the making of which will require that private prop- 
erty should be taken or damaged, such district may cause compensation 
therefor to be ascertained, and condemn and acquire possession thereof in 
the same manner as nearly as may be as is provided in an Act entitled, 
"An Act to provide for the exercise of the right of eminent domain," 
approved April 10, 1872: Provided/hoivever, that proceedings to ascer- 
tain the compensation to be paid for taking or damaging private property 
shall in all cases be instituted in the county where the property sought 
to be taken or damaged is situated : Andj i^rovided, that all damages to 
property, whether determined by agreement or by final judgment of 
court, shall be paid prior to the payment of any other debt or obligations. 

§ 14. When it shall be necessary in making any improvements which 
any district is authorized by this Act to make, to enter upon any public 
property or property held for public use, such district shall have the 
power so to do and may acquire the necessary right of way over such 
property held for public use in the same manner as is above provided for 
acquiring private property, and may enter upon, use, widen, deepen and 
improve any waters, waterways, or lake. 

§ 15. Every water district shall be liable for all damages to real 
estate within or without such district which shall be overflowed or other- 
wise damaged by reason of the construction or use of any building, 
machiner)^, filter, well, intake, crib, conduit, aqueduct, pipe, ditch, tank 
or reservoir, or the enlargement or use of any waters, waterways or lake 
or by reason of any other improvement under the provisions of this Act; 
and actions to recover such damages may be brought in the county where 
such real estate is situated, or in the county where such sanitary district 
is located, at the option of the party claiming to be injured. And in case 
judgment is rendered against such district for damage, the plaintiff shall 
also recover his reasonable attorneys' fees to be taxed as costs of suit: 
Provided, however, it shall appear on the hearing of plaintiff's motion 
to tax such attorneys' fees, that the plaintiff notified the trustees of such 
district in writing, at least sixty days before suit was commenced by leav- 
ing a copy of such notice with some one of the trustees of such district, 

stating that he claims damages to the amount of dollars by 

reason of (here insert the cause of damage) and intends to sue for the 
same : And, provided, further, that the amount recovered shall be larger 
than the amount offered by said trustees (if anything) as a compromise 
for damages sustained. 

§ 16. No person shall be an incompetent judge, justice or juror by 
reason of his being an inhabitant or freeholder in any sanitary district 
formed under the provisions hereof in any action in which such sanitary 
district may be a party in interest.

■upon, or over, the waters thereof; may inspect the water works and fix- 
tures in any city, village or town supplied wholly or in part by said 
trustee and may take all proper measures to determine the amount of 
water used and wasted and to prevent the improper use or waste of water. 

§ 18. No person shall take or divert any water from any well, reser- 
voir, conduit, pipe, tank or aqueduct, used by said district for supplying 
such water to any municipal corporation, company or person to which 
water is delivered by said district, or occupy, injure or interfere with 
any such water, or any land, building, aqueduct, pipe, drain, conduit, 
hydrant, machinery, filter, reservoir, tank or other work or property so 
used, and no person shall corrupt, render impure, waste or improperly 
use, any such water: Provided, however, the provisions of this section 
shall not apply to any person acting with the permission and consent of 
the trustees of such district. Any person violating the provisions of 
this section shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and be punished 
by a fine of not less than ten dollars nor more than five hundred dollars 
or imprisoned in the county jail not exceeding one year, or both, at the 
discretion of the court having cognizance thereof.

stitute a contract or grant between the State of Illinois and any water 
district formed under its provisions, or to prevent, debar or deprive the 
State of Illinois, from, at any time in the future altering, amending or 
repealing this Act or imposing any conditions, restrictions or require- 
ments other, different or additional to any herein contained upon any 
water district which may be formed hereunder.

(House Bill, No. 96. Approved June 10, Ijll.) 



An Act to regulate the civil service of counties. 
Section 1. Be it enacted hy the People of the State of Illinois, repre- 
sented in the General Assembly: That in all counties of this State 
containing one hundred and fifty thousand or more inhabitants, all the 
offices and places of employment in the service of such counties, and 
all offices and places of employment the salaries or wages for which are 
paid in whole or in part out of funds appropriated by the county board of 
such county, except those exempted in section 11 of this Act, shall be 
classified and filled in the manner hereinafter provided for and not 
otherwise. Whenever any county not now containing one hundred and 
fifty thousand or more inhabitants shall have attained such number of 
inhabitants, as shown by any census hereafter taken by the United States, 
thereupon this Act shall become applicable to such county on the first 
day of July next succeeding the completion of the taking of such census 
by the United States. 

§ 3. Commissioners appointed — oath — vacancies — removals.] 
In all counties of this State to which this Act is or shall become appli- 
cable, there is hereby created and established a county civil service com- 
mission, hereinafter called the commission, to consist of three persons 
to be selected and appointed in the manner following: 



200 CIVIL SERVICE. 



The president of the county board shall, with the consent of a ma- 
pority of the members of the county board, at a regular meeting within 
six months after July 1, A. D. 1911, appoint three persons, not more 
than two of whom shall at any time belong to or be affiliated with the 
same political party, who shall constitute and be known as- the County 
Civil toervice Commission of said county : one for a term of one year 
from the date of his appointment, one for a term of two years and one 
for a term of three years from date of appointment and until their re- 
spective successors are appointed and qualified, and at the expiration of 
the respective terms above named or soon thereafter the president shall in 
like manner appoint one person as the successor of the commissioner 
whose term shall then expire, to serve as a commissioner for three years 
and until his successor is in like manner appointed and qualified: Pro- 
vided, however, that the commissioners of any existing county civil ser- 
vice commission in any county to which this Act applies, shall continue 
to hold their respective offices until the expiration of their several terms, 
unless removed in accordance with the provisions of this Act. Each 
county civil service commissioner, before entering upon the duties of 
his otiice, shall take the oath prescribed by the Constitution. Two mem- 
bers of the commission shall constitute a quorum. No member of the 
commission shall hold any other lucrative office or employment under 
the United States, the State of Illinois, or any municipal corporation or 
political division thereof. No county civil service commissioner^ now in 
office or hereafter appointed, shall be removed except for palpable in- 
competence or malfeasance in office upon written charges and after an 
opportunity to be heard in his own defense. Such charges shall be filed 
with the county judge of the county in and for which the civil service 
commissioner was appointed. Said charges shall be heard and deter- 
mined by a trial board consisting of: (1) the person holding the office 
of county judge in and for the county aforesaid; (2) the person holding 
the office of circuit judge in the judicial circuit containing or embracing 
the said county, or the person holding the office of chief justice of said 
circuit court, if there be more than one circuit judge; and (3) a third 
person to be selected by the two members of said trial board aforesaid, 
which third person shall be a person holding the office of circuit judge 
in the circuit containing or embracing said county aforesaid or in a 
circuit contiguous thereto. The findings and decision of said trial board 
shall be final and certified by said board to the president of the county 
board, and if such charges are sustained the civil service commissioner so 
charged shall be forthwith removed from office by the president of said 
county board, who shall thereupon proceed to fill pursuant to law the

CIVIL SERVICE. 



201 



ment which this Act provides shall be classified. Such classification shall 
be made with reference to the duties of such offices and places for the 
purpose of establishing grades and of fixing and maintaining standards 
of examinations hereinafter provided for. The offices and places so 
classified by the commission shall constitute the classified civil service 
of such county and no appointments to any of such offices or places shall 
be made except under and according to the provisions of this Act and 
of the rules hereinafter mentioned. As a part of such classified civil 
service all officers and employes of the commission, except special exam- 
iners, shall be included : Provided, however, that all attending physicians 
and surgeons, who serve without compensation, in any public institution 
in such county, devoted to the care and treatment of the sick, poor and 
insane, and who are hereby made a part of the classified civil service of 
such county, shall be appointed for such term as the commission shall 
by rule prescribe, and that the physicians and surgeons usually desig- 
nated as internes, who are also hereby made a part of the classified 
civil service of such county, shall be appointed for such term as the 
commission shall by rule prescribe: And, provided, further, that there 
may also, at the discretion of such county board, be a consulting staff of 
physicians and surgeons, which staff shall be appointed bv the countv 
board, and that such county board in its discretion may contract with 
any training school of recognized standing for the nursing of any or 
all of the sick, poor and insane of such county. 

§ 3a. Standaedization.] The commission shall ascertain the duties 
of each office and place in the classified civil service and designate by 
rule the grade of each position. Each grade shall comprise offices and 
places having substantially similar duties. The commission shall by 
rule indicate the lines of promotion from each lower grade to a hisrher 
grade wherever the experience derived in the performance of the duties 
of such lower grade tends to qualify for performance of duty in such 
higher grade. The commission shall b^?^ rule prescribe standards of 
efficiency for each grade and for examinations of candidates for appoint- 
ment thereto. 

For the purpose of establishing uniformity of pay and title for all 
offices and places of employment classified in the same grade, it shall be 
the duty of the commission to prescribe by rule the maximum and 
minimum pay for each grade and the title thereof and to report to the 
county board, annually, and at such other times as it may direct, the 
name and address of each officer and employe paid more or less than the 
pay prescribed for his grade or designated by a title other than that pre- 
scribed for his grade by the commission. 

The commission shall standardize employment in each grade and 
make and keep a record of the relative efficiency of each officer and em- 
ploye in the classified civil service. It shall provide by rule, methods 
for ascertaining and verifying the facts from which such records of 
relative efficiency shall be made, which shall be uniform for each grade 
in the classified service. 



202 CIVIL SERVICE. 



§ 3b. Persons in county service when act applies.] In any 
county vv'hich is now, or which hereafter may become, subject to the pro- 
visions of this Act, all persons who at the time when this Act takes effect 
or becomes applicable, hold offices or places of employment which this 
Act provides shall be classified, shall be included under the provisions 
of this Act and shall become members of the classified civil service of 
such county, without original examination. 

§ 4. EuLES.] The said commission shall make rules to carry out 
the purposes of this Act, and for examinations, appointments, transfers 
and removals and for maintaining and keeping records of the efficiency 
of officers and employes, and groups of officers and emplo3^es, in accord- 
ance with the provisions of this Act, and said commission may from 
time to time make changes in such rules. 

§ 5. Publication of rules.] All rules made as herein provided and 
all changes therein shall forthwith be printed for distribution by the 
commission, and it shall give notice of the places where said rules 
may be obtained, by publication in one or more daily newspapers pub- 
lished in such county, and in each such publication shall specify the 
date not less than ten days subsequent to the date of such publication, 
when said rules shall go into operation. 

§ 6. Examinations.] All applicants for offices or places in said 
classified civil service, except those mentioned in section 11 hereof, shall 
be subjected to examinatioh, which shall be public, competitive and free 
to all persons who may be lawfully appointed thereto with limitations 
specified in the rules of the commission as to residence, age, sex, health, 
habits, moral character and qualifications to perform the duties of the 
office or place to be filled, which qualifications shall be prescribed in ad- 
vance of such examination. Such examinations shall be practical in 
their character, and shall relate to those matters which will fairly test 
the relative capacity of the persons examined to discharge the duties of 
the position to which they seek to be appointed, and may include tests 
of physical qualifications and health and when apppropriate, of manual 
skill. No question in any examination shall' relate to political or re- 
ligious opinions or affiliations. The commission shall control all exam- 
inations, and may, whenever an examination is to take place, designate 
a suitable number of persons, either in or not in the official service of 
"the county to be examiners ; and it shall be the duty of such examiners, 
and if in the official service it shall, without extra compensation, be a 
part of their official duty to conduct such examination as the commis- 
sion may direct and to make return and report thereof to said com- 
mission; and the commission may at any time substitute any other per- 
son, whether or not in such service, in place of any one so selected; and 
the commission may themselves at any time, act as such examiners, and 
without appointing examiners. Said commission shall, by rule, pro- 
vide for and hold a sufficient number of examinations to provide a suf- 
ficient number of eligibles on the register for each grade of position in 
the classified civil service, and if any place in the classified civil service 



CIVIL SERVICE. 203 



becomes vacant, to which there is no person eligible for appointment, 
the commission shall immediately hold an examination for such posi- 
tion and repeat the same, if necessary, until a vacancy is filled in ac- 
cordance with the provisions of this Act. 

Said commission may, in its discretion, cancel such portion of any 
such register as has been in force for more than two years but not while 
any vacancy exists for the filling of which a requisition has been made 
upon the commission, and which can be filled from said register. Exam- 
inations for an eligible list for each position in the classified service 
above mentioned shall be held at least once in two years. Said commis- 
sion shall permanently preserve all written and printed questions and 
the answers thereto of any and all competitive examinations on technical 
subjects which shall be in writing and the record thereof open at all 
times to inspection. 

§ 7. Notice of examinations.] Notice of the time and place and 
general scope of every examination and of the duties, pay and nature 
of the position sought to be filled shall be given by the commission by 
publication, for two weeks preceding such examination, in a daily news- 
paper of general circulation published in the county, and such notice 
shall be posted by the commission in a conspicuous place in its office 
for two weeks before such examination. Such further notice of examina- 
tions may be given as the commission shall prescribe. 

§ 8. Eegistees.] From the return or reports of examiners, or from 
the examinations made by the commission^ the commission shall prepare 
a register for each grade or class of position in the classified service of 
the county of the persons who shall attain such minimum mark as may 
be fixed by the commission for any part of such examination and whose 
general average standing upon examination for such grade or class is 
not less than the minimum fixed by the rules of said commission, and 
who are otherwise eligible; and such persons shall take rank upon the 
register as candidates in the order of their relative excellence as deter- 
mined by examination, without reference to priority of time of exami- 
nation. 

§ 9. Promotion.] The commission shall note of record the duties 
(whether imposed by law, official regulation or practice) of each office 
or place in the classified service. It shall thereupon by rule fix lines for 
promotion from such several offices and places to superior offices or places 
in all cases where, in the judgment of the commission, the duties of such 
several positions directly tend to fit the incumbent for a superior posi- 
tion. In case of vacancy in superior offices or places, which cannot be 
filled by reinstatement, the commission shall hold promotion examina- 
tions to fill such vacancy. Incumbents of offices or places next lower in 
the line so fixed shall be solely eligible for such examination, unless in 
the judgment of the commission, to be noted in its minutes with the 
grounds therefor, it is for the best interests of the service that original 
examination for such vacancy be held. In promotion examinations, 
efficiency and seniority in service shall form a part of such examination, 



204 CIVIL SERVICE. 



but combined shall not carry a total niimber of marks to exceed one- 
quarter of the maximum marks attainable in such examination. All 
examinations for promotion shall be competitive. The method of exami- 
nation, the rules governing the same, and the method of certifying shall 
be the same as provided for in original examination. 

§ 10. Appointments.] Whenever a position classified under this 
Act is to be filled, the appointing officer shall make requisition upon said 
commission and the commission shall certify to him the name and 
address of the candidate standing highest upon the register of eligibles 
for said position. The appointing officer shall notify the commission 
of each position to be filled separately and shall fill such position by the 
appointment of the person certified to him by said commission therefor, 
which appointment shall be on probation for a period of not more than 
three months to be fixed by said rules. At any time during the period 
of probation, the appointing officer may discharge a person so certified 
and shall forthwith notify the commission in writing of such discharge. 
If such person is not thus discharged, his appointment shall be deemed 
complete. 

When there is no eligible list, the appointing officer may, with the 
authority of the commission, make temporary appointments to remain 
in force only until regular appointments under the provisions of this 
Act can be made and examinations to supply an eligible list therefor 
shall be held, and an eligible list established therefrom, within sixty 
days from the making of such appointments. 

In employment of an essentially temporary and transitory nature, the 
appointing officer may, with the authority of the commission, make 
temporary appointments to fill a vacancy, but no such authority shall be 
granted for a period of more than thirty days, but it may be renewed 
from time to time by the commission. The commission shall include in 
its annual report, and if thereto required by the county board, in any 
special report, a statement of all temporary authorities granted or re- 
newed during the year or period specified by the county board, together 
with a statement of the facts in each case because of which such authority 
was granted. 

The acceptance or refusal by an eligible person of a temporary appoint- 
ment shall not affect his standing on the register for permanent appoint- 
ment. In case of emergency, the sheriff or the coroner, when perform- 
ing the duties of sheriff, may appoint such number of deputies as the 
public welfare demands for the preservation of peace, the protection of 
property and the enforcement of the law, which appointments may be 
made without the authority of the commission and only for such period 
of time as the emergency requires, and in such cases the Civil Service 
Commission shall certify such emergency appointments. 

§ 10a. Transfers.] The commission may by its rules provide for 
transfers of officers and employes in the classified service from positions 
in one office or department to positions of the same class and grade in 
another office or department. Transfers which are in the nature of pro- 



CIVIL SERVICE. 205 



motions shall be governed by section 9 of this Act, and transfers which 
are in the nature of demotions shall be governed by section 12 of this 
Act.

fied civil service : Provided, however, that any person or persons now 
holding any office or position, which office or position is now in the classi- 
fied civil service shall not be affected by the exemptions herein provided 
for but shall remain and be included in the classified civil service. 

§ 12. Eemovals.] No officer or employe in the classified civil 
service of the county shall be removed or discharged except for cause, 
upon written charges, and after an opportunity to be heard in his own 
defense. Such charges shall, within thirty days from the date of sus- 
pension under such charges, be investigated by or before the commission, 
or by or before some officer or board appointed by the commission to 
conduct such investigation. The hearing shall be public and the accused 
shall be entitled to call witnesses in his defense and to have the aid of 
counsel. The hearing may be postponed or continued with the consent 
of the accused. The finding and decision of the commission or of such 
investigating officer or board, when approved by said commission^ shall 
be final and shall be certified to the appointing officer, and shall be forth- 
with enforced by such officer. JSTothing in this Act shall limit the powers 
of any officer to suspend a subordinate for a reasonable period, not exceed- 
ing thirty days. Every such suspension shall be without pay : Provided, 
however, that the commission shall have authority to investigate every 
such suspension, and, in case of its disapproval thereof, it shall have 
power to restore pay to the employe so suspended. In the course of an 
investigation provided for in this Act, each member of the commission, 
and of any board so appointed by it, and any officer so appointed, shall 
have the power to administer oaths and shall have power to secure by its 
subpoena both the attendance and testimony of witnesses, and the produc- 
tion of books and papers. Nothing in this section shall be construed to

ments, permanent or temporary, made in such classified civil service and 
of all transfers, promotions, resignations or vacancies from any cause in

kept by said commission. When any ofiice or place of employment is 
created or abolished, or the compensation attached thereto altered, the 
officer or board making such change shall immediately report it in writ- 
ing to said commission. If, when created, such ofiice or place is not 
embraced in the then existing classification, the commission shall within 
thirty days of the receipt of said report, classify the same and standardize 
the duties thereof. But no place of employment shall be deemed a newly 
created position, the duties of which come within the scope of standard- 
ization already fixed by the commission. 

§ 14. Efficiency — investigations.] The commission shall in- 
vestigate the efficiency of all officers and employes and of all groups of 
officers and employes in the classified service and shall report to each 
officer, board or other authority in charge of any institution, office or 
department of the county government its findings and recommendations 
relative to increasing efficiency and economy therein. In case the recom- 
mendations made by the commission are not carried into effect within 
a reasonable time,' or in case of a difference of opinion with reference 
to such findings or recommendations between the commission and the 
officer, board or authority in charge of an institution, office or depart- 
ment concerned in any such finding or recommendation, the report ac- 
companied by a note of the relevant facts shall be transmitted to the 
county board by the commission. The commission shall investigate the 
enforcement of this Act and of the rules of the commission, the conduct 
of the appointees in the classified service and the methods of administra- 
tion therein, and may investigate the nature, tenure and compensation 
of all offices and places in the civil service of the county. In the course 
of such investigation each commissioner shall have power to administer 
oaths, and said commission shall have power to secure by its subpoena

The governing authority or body of such park district, hereafter called 
the Park Commissioners, shall within thirty days after this Act becomes 
applicable, and thereafter whenever a vacancy occurs, appoint a superin- 
tendent of employment, for a term of six years from the date of his 
appointment and until his successor is duly appointed and qualified, and 
two park commissioners or members of such governing authority, each 
for a term of two years from the date of his appointment and until his 
successor is duly appointed and qualified, who shall constitute and be 
known as the Civil Service Board of such park district. The superin- 
tendent of employment shall be paid a salary of not less than three 
thousand dollars a year. The Park Commissioners may fix the salary of 
each of the other members of the Civil Service Board at such sum, not 
to exceed five hundred dollars a year, as they may deem proper. Two 
members of the board shall constitute a quorum. 

No member of the Civil Service Board shall be removed except for 
palpable incompetence or malfeasance in office upon written charges 
filed by or at the direction of the Park Commissioners and heard before 
the board of hearings herein provided for. The persons who are the 
county judge in and for the county in which said park district is situated 
and the two judges of the circuit court of such county who have longest 
held judicial office shall constitute the board of hearings: Provided, 
that whenever more than two circuit judges shall be eligible as having 
held judicial office for the same length of time, the choice of circuit 
judges shall be made by them by lot. In case there is but one circuit 
judge in the circuit including or embracing said county, then said cir- 
cuit judge and said county judge shall select the third member of said 
board of hearings from among the circuit judges in contiguous circuits. 

The board of hearings shall hear and determine the charges and its find- 
ings shall be final and if such charges shall be sustained the member of the 
Civil Service Board so charged shall be forthwith removed from office by 
said board of hearings and the Park Commissioners shall thereupon pro- 
ceed within thirty days to fill the vacancy created by such removal. In 
any proceedings provided for in this section the board of hearings, and 
each member thereof, shall have power to administer oaths and to com- 
pel by subpoena the attendance and testimony of witnesses and the pro- 
duction of books and papers. 

§ 3. Classification — standardization.] The superintendent of 
employment shall, with the consent and approval of said Civil Service 
Board, classify within ninety days after this Act goes into effect, all 
offices and places of employm.ent in said park district with reference to 
the duties thereof for the purpose of establishing grades, and of fixing 
and maintaining standards of examinations hereinafter provided for. 
The offices and places so classified shall constitute the classified civil 
service of such park district and no appointments, promotions, transfers, 
reductions in grade or pay or removal therefrom shall be made except 
under and according to the provisions of this Act and of the rules here- 



CIVIL SERVICE. 213 



inafter mentioned. As a part of such classified civil service all officers 
and employes under said board^ except special examiners, shall be in- 
cluded. The superintendent of employment shall ascertain and record 
the duties of each office and place in the classified civil service and desig- 
nate the grade of each position. Each grade shall comprise offices and 
places having substantially similar duties. He shall also record the 
lines of promotion from each lower grade to a higher grade wherever 
the experience derived in the performance of the duties of such lower 
grade tends to qualify for performance of duty in such higher grade. 
The Civil Service Board shall by rule prescribe standards of efficiency 
for each grade and for examinations of candidates for appointment 
thereto. 

For the purpose of establishing uniformity of pay and title for all 
offices and places of employment classified in the same grade, it shall 
be the duty of the Civil Service Board to prescribe by rule the maximum 
and minimum pay for each grade and the title thereof and to report to 
the Park Commissioners annually and at such other times as they may 
direct the name and address of each officer and employe paid more or 
less than the pay prescribed for his grade or designated by a title other 
than that prescribed for his grade by the board. It shall be the duty 
of the Park Commissioners wdthin thirty days after receiving such re- 
port to change the pay or title of any officer or employe so reported out 
of grade to conform to the title and pay prescribed by the board for 
the grade in which the position held by such officer or employe is clas- 
sified. The board shall standardize employment in each grade and 
make and keep a record of the relative efficiency of each officer and em- 
ploye in the classified civil service. The board shall provide by rule 
methods for ascertaining and verifying the facts from which such records 
of relative efficiency shall be made which shall be uniform for each 
grade in the classified civil service. 

§ 3a. Peesons in service V7Hen act applies.] In any park dis- 
trict which is now, or which hereafter may become, subject to the pro- 
visions of this Act, all persons who at the time when this Act takes ef- 
fect or becomes applicable, hold offices or places of employment which 
this Act provides shall be classified, shall be included under the pro- 
visions of this Act and shall become members of the classified civil 
service of such park district, without original examination. 

§ 4. Rules.] The Civil Service Board shall make rules to carry 
out the purposes of this Act, and for examinations, appointments, trans- 
fers and removals and for maintaining and keeping records of the ef- 
ficiency of officers and employes, and groups of officers and employes, in 
accordance with the provisions of this. Act, and said board may from 
time to time make changes in such rules. 

§ 5. Publication" of rules.] All rules made as herein provided 
and all changes therein shall forthwith be printed for distribution by the 
Civil Service Board and it shall give notice of the places where said 



214 CIVIL SEEVIGE. 



rules may be obtained^, by publication in one or more daily newspapers 
published in the county in which said park district is situated and in 
each such publication shall specify the date not less than ten days sub- 
sequent to the date of such publication, when said rules shall go into_ 
operation. 

§ 6. Examinations.] All applicants for offices or places in said 
classified civil service, except those mentioned in section 11 hereof, shall 
be subjected to examination, which shall be public, competitive and free 
to all persons who may be lawfully appointed thereto, with limitations 
specified in the rules of the board as to residence, age, sex, health, habits, 
moral character and qualifications to perform the duties of the office or 
place to be filled, which qualification shall be prescribed in advance of 
such examination. Such examinations shall be practical in their char- 
acter, and shall relate to those matters which will fairly test the relative 
capacity of the persons examined to discharge the duties of the position 
to which they seek to be appointed, and may include tests of physical qual- 
ifications and health and when appropriate, of manual skill. No question 
in any examination shall relate to political or religious opinions or affil- 
iations. The superintendent of employment shall control all examina- 
tions, and may, whenever an examination is to take place, designate a 
suitable number of persons to be special examiners; and it shall be the 
duty of such special examiners to conduct such examinations as the 
superintendent of employment may direct, and to make return and re- 
port thereof to him ; and he may at any time substitute any other person 
in the place of any one so selected; and he may himself, at any time, 
act as such special examiner, and without appointing other special ex- 
aminers. The board shall, with reference to maintaining eligible regis- 
ters, proceed by rule to divide the entire service into two divisions; in 
one of these divisions shall be included all offices and places of employ- 
ment in the classified service whereto certification is infrequent; in the 
other shall be included all other offices and places in the classified 
service. Such rule shall distinctly designate in which division each 
of said ofiices or places falls; and as to all offices and places com- 
prised under the first division above mentioned, examination shall be 
held only when a vacancy exists, and within 60 days thereafter, and an 
eligible list or register, so prepared, shall be in force only until per- 
manent appointment has been made from such list or registers; and as 
to all other offices and places said board shall, by rule, provide for and 
said superintendent of employment shall hold a sufficient number of 
examinations to provide a sufficient number of eligibles on the register 
for each grade of position in the classified civil service, and if any place 
in the classified civil service shall become vacant, to which there is no 
person eligible for appointment, he shall immediately hold an examina- 
tion for such position and repeat the same if necessary, until a vacancy 
is filled in accordance with the provisions of this Act. 

Said board may, in its discretion, cancel such portion of any such 
register as has been in force for more than two years, but not while any 



CIVIL SERVICE. 215 



vacancy exists for the filling of which a requisition has been made upon 
the commission, and which can be filled from said register. Examina- 
tions for an eligible list for each position in the classified service above 
mentioned shall be held at least once in two years. 

§ 7. Notice of examinations.] Notice of the time and place and 
general scope of every examination and of the duties, pay and nature of 
the position sought to be filled shall be given by the superintendent of 
employment by publication for two weeks preceding such examination, 
in a daily newspaper of general circulation published in the county in 
which said park district is situated and such notice shall be posted by 
him in a conspicuous place in his office for two weeks before such ex- 
aminations. 

§ 8. Eegistees.] From the return or reports of examiners, or from 
the examinations made by the superintendent of employment, the super- 
intendent of employment shall prepare a register for each grade or class 
of position in the classified service of the park district of the persons 
who shall attain such minimum mark as may be fixed by the superin- 
tendent of employment for any part of such examination, and whose 
general average standing upon examination for such grade or class is 
not less than the minimum fixed by the rules of said board, and who 
are otherwise eligible ; and such persons shall take rank upon the regis- 
ter as candidates in the order of their relative excellence as determined 
by examination, without reference to priority of time of examination. 

§ 9. Promotion.] The superintendent of employment shall note of 
record the duties (whether imposed by law, official regulation or prac- 
tice) of each office or place ia the classified service. The Civil Service 
Board shall thereupon by rule fix lines for promotion from such several 
offices and places to superior offices or places in ail cases where, in the 
judgment of the board, the duties of such several positions directly tend 
to fit the incumbent for a superior position. In case of vacancy in su- 
perior offices or places, which cannot be filled by reinstatement, the 
superintendent of employment shall hold promotion examinations to fill 
such vacancy. Incumbents of offices or places next lower in the line so 
fixed shall be solely eligible for such examination, unless in the judg- 
ment of the board, to be noted in its minutes with the grounds therefor, 
it is for the best interests of the service that original examination for 
such vacancy be held. In promotion examinations, efficiency and senior- 
ity in service shall form a part of such examination, but combined shall 
not carry a total number of marks to exceed one-quarter of the maximum 
marks attainable in such examination. All examinations for promotion 
shall be competitive. The method of examination, the rules governing 
the same, and the method of certifying shall be the same as provided 
for in original examination. 

§ 10. Appointments.] Whenever a position classified under this 
Act is to be filled, the appointing officer shall make requisition upon 
said board, and the board shall certify to him the name and address 
of the candidate standing highest upon the register of eligibles for said 



216 CIVIL SEEVICB. 



position. The appointing officer shall notify the board of each position 
to be filled separately and shall fill such position by the appointment of 
the person certified to him by said board therefor which appointment 
shall be on probation for a period of not more than three months to be 
fixed by said rules. At any time during the period of probation, the ap- 
pointing officer may discharge a person so certified and shall forthwith 
notify the board in writing of such discharge. If such person is not 
thus discharges [discharged], his appointment shall be deemed com- 
plete. 

When there is no eligible list, the appointing officer may, with the 
authority of the superintendent of employment, make temporary ap- 
pointments to remain in force only until regular appointments under the 
provisions of this Act can be made, and examinations to supply an 
eligible list therefor shall be held and an eligible list established there- 
from within sixty days from the making of such appointments. 

In employment of an essentially temporary and transitory nature, the 
appointing officer may, with the authority of the said superintendent, 
make temporary appointments to fill a vacancy, but no such authority 
shall be granted for -a period of more than thirty days, but it may be 
renewed from time to time by the superintendent. The said superin- 
tendent shall include in his annual report, and if thereto required by the 
Park Commissioners, in any special report, a statement of all temporary 
authorities granted or renewed during the year or period specified by 
the Park Commissioners, together with a statement of the facts in each 
case because of which such authority was granted. 

The acceptance or refusal by an eligible person of a temporary ap- 
pointment shall not affect his standing on the register for permanent 
appointment. 

§ 10a. Transfers.] The board may by its rules provide for trans- 
fers of officers and employes in the classified service from positions in 
one office or department to positions of the same class and grade in 
another office or department. Transfers which are in the nature of 
promotions shall be governed by section 9 of this Act and transfers 
which are in the nature of demotions shall be governed by section 13 
of this Act.

offices and places of employment, in so far as there are or may be such in 
such park district, shall not be included within the classified civil ser- 
vice : All elective officers, the general superintendent, the attorneys and 
one confidential clerk or secretary. 

§ 12. Eemovals.] No officer or employe in the classified civil ser- 
vice of any park district shall be removed or discharged except for cause, 
upon written charges, and after an opportunity to be heard in his own 
defense. Such charges shall be investigated by or before the Civil Service 
Board, or by or before some officer or officers appointed by the board 
to conduct such investigation within thirty days from the date of sus- 
pension under such charges. The hearing shall be public and the ac- 



CIVIL SERVICE. 317 



cused shall be entitled to call witnesses in his defense and to have the 
aid of counsel. The hearing may be postponed or continued with the 
consent of the accused. The finding and decision of the board or of 
such investigating officer or officers, when approved by said board, shall 
be final and shall be certified to the appointing officer, and shall be 
forthwith enforced by such officer. Nothing in this Act shall limit the 
powder of any officer to suspend a subordinate for a reasonable period not 
exceeding thirty days. Every such suspension shall be without pay : 
Provided, however, that the board shall have authority to investigate 
every such suspension and, in case of its disapproval thereof, it shall 
have power to restore pay to the employe so suspended. In the course 
of any investigation provided for in this Act, each member of the board 
and any officer appointed by it shall have the power to administer oaths 
and shall have power to secure by its subpoena both the attendance 
and testimony of witnesses and the production of books and papers.

the appointing power to said board of all appointments, permanent or 
temporary, made in such classified civil service and of all transfers, 
promotions, resignations, or vacancies from any cause in such service

kept by said commission. If, when created, such office or place is not 
embraced in the then existing classification, the commission shall within 
thirty daj^s of the receipt of said report, classify the same and standardize 
the duties thereof. But no place of employment shall be deemed a 
newly created position, the duties of which come within the scope of 
standardization already fixed by the commission. When any office or 
place of employment is created or abolished, or the compensation at- 
tached thereto altered, the officer or board making such change shall 
report it in writing to said commission within ten days of the date 
thereof. 

§ 14. Efficiency — investigation.] The board shall investigate 
the efficiency of all officers and employes and of all groups of officers 
and employes in the classified service and shall report to each officer, 
board or other authority in charge of any office or department of the 
park district its findings and recommendations relative to increasing 
efficiency and economy therein. In case the recommendations made by 
the board are not carried into effect within a reasonable time, or in 
case of a difference of opinion with reference to such findings or recom- 
mendations between the board and the officer, or authority in charge of 
an office or department concerned in any such findings or recommenda- 
tion, the report accompanied by a note of the relevant facts shall be 
transmitted to the Park Commissioners by the board. The superintend- 
ent of employment shall investigate the enforcement of this Act and of

priated for contingent purposes by said Park Commissioners.

titled, "An Act to regulate the civil service of the State of Illinois," 
approved May 11, 1905, in force July 1, 1905; as amended hy an Act

Act approved May 25, 1907, in force July 1, 1907, and hy adding two 
new sections to he known as sections 3a and 3h. 

Section 1. Be it enacted hy the People of the State of Illinois, repre- 
sented in the General Assemhly: That sections 3, 4, 6, 9, 10, 11, 12 
and 14 of an Act entitled, "An Act to regulate the civil service of the 
State of Illinois," approved May 11, 1905, in force July 1, 1905 ; as

and the same are hereby amended, and by adding thereto two new sec- 
tions to be known as sections 3a and 3b, which said sections as amended 
and said additional sections shall read as follows: 

§ 3. Said commisioners shall within six months after this Act goes 
into effect, classify all the offices and places of employment in the State 



CIVIL SERVICE. ■ 223 



service, except as provided in section 11 of this Act, with reference to 
the duties thereof, for the purpose of establishing grades and for tlie 
purpose of fixing and maintaining standards of examinations herein- 
after provided for. Such classification shall include all offices and 
places of employment now in existence or which may hereafter be 
created in the State service of the State of Illinois, except those ex- 
pressly exempted from the operation of this Act in section 11 hereof. 
The offices and places so classified by the commission shall constitute 
the classified civil service of the State, and no appointments to any of 
such offices or places shall be made except under and according to the 
provisions of this Act and of the rules hereinafter mentioned. The clas- 
sified service shall include the position of chief examiner herein pro- 
vided for and all officers and employes of the Civil Service Commission 
except special examiners. 

§ 3a. The commission shall ascertain the duties of each office and 
place in the classified service and designate by rule the grade of each 
position. Each grade shall comprise offices and places having substan- 
tially similar duties. The commission shall by rule indicate the lines of 
promotion from each lower gTade to a higher grade wherever the ex- 
perience derived in performance of the duties of such lower grade tends 
to qualify for performance of duty in such higher grade. The commis- 
sion shall by rule prescribe standards of efficiency for each grade and 
for examinations of candidates for appointment thereto. For the pur- 
pose of establishing uniformity of pay and title for all offices and places 
of employment classified in the same grade, it shall be the duty of the 
commission to prescribe by rule the maximum and minimum pay for 
each grade and the title thereof and to report to the Governor annually, 
and at such other times as he may direct, the name and address of 
each officer and employe paid more or less than the pay prescribed for 
his grade or designated by a title other than that prescribed for his 
grade by the commission. 

The commission shall standardize employment in each grade and 
•make and keep a record of the relative efficiency of each officer and 
employe in the classified service. It shall provide by rule methods for 
ascertaining and verifying the facts from which such records of rela- 
tive efficiency shall be made, which shall be uniform for each grade of 
the classified service. 

§ 3b. All persons who, when this Act takes effect, shall hold offices 
or places of employment other than those exempted in section 11 of this 
Act, shall be classified under the provisions of this Act, and shall be- 
come members of the classified State civil service without original 
examination. 

§ 4. Said commission shall make rules to carry out the purposes 
of this Act, and for examination, appointments, transfers and removals 
and for maintaining and keeping records of the efficiency of officers 
and employes and groups of officers and employes in accordance with 
the provisions of this Act, and said commission may from time to time 
make changes in such rules. 



224 CIVIL SERVICE. 



§ 6. All applicants for offices or places in said classified service, 
except those mentioned in section 11 hereof, shall be subjected to exam- 
ination, which shall be public, competitive and free to all citizens of 
the State of Illinois who may be lawfully appointed to any office or place 
in the service of the State of Illinois, with limitations specified in the 
rules of the commission as to residence, age, sex, health, habits, moral 
character and qualifications to perform the duties of the office or place 
to be filled, which qualifications shall be prescribed by rule in advance 
of such examination : Provided^ however, that in examinations for tech- 
nical positions residence may be waived. Such examinations shall be 
practical in their character, and shall relate to those matters which will 
fairly test the relative capacity of the persons examined to discharge 
the duties of the position to which they seek to be appointed, and may 
include tests of physical qualifications and health, and when appropriate, 
of manual skill. No question in any examination shall relate to political 
or religious opinions or affilations. The commission shall control all 
examinations and may, whenever an examination is to take place, desig- 
nate a suitable number of persons, either in or not in the official service 
of the State, to be examiners; and it shall be the duty of such exam- 
iners, and if in the official service it shall, without extra compensation, 
be a part of their official duty to conduct such examination as the com- 
mission may direct, and to make return or report thereof to said com- 
mission; and the commission may at any time substitute any other 
person, whether or not in such service, in the place of any one so selected, 
and the commission may themselves at any time act as such examiners 
and without appointing examiners. 

§ 9. Promotion.] The commission shall note of record the duties 
(whether imposed by law, official regulation or practice) of each office 
or place in the classified service. It shall thereupon by rule fix lines 
of promotion from such several offices and places to superior offices or 
places in all cases where, in the judgment of the commission, the duties 
of such several positions directly tend to fit the incumbent for a superior 
position. In case of vacancy in superior offices or places, which cannot 
be filled by reinstatement, the commission shall hold promotion exam- 
inations to fill such vacancy. Incumbents of offices or places next lower 
in the line so fixed shall be solely eligible for such examination unless 
in the judgment of the commission, to be noted in its minutes with the 
grounds therefor, it is for the best interests of the service that original 
examination for such vacancy be held. In promotion examinations, 
efficiency and seniority in service shall form a part of such examination, 
but combined, shall not carry a total number of marks to exceed one- 
quarter of the maximum mark attainable in such examination. All 
examinations for promotion shall be competitive. The method of exam- 
ination, the rules governing the same and the method of certifying shall 
be the same as provided for in original examination. 

§ 10. Appointments.] Whenever a position classified under this 
Act is to be filled, the appointing officer shall make requisition upon 



CIVIL SERVICE. 225 



said commission, and the commission shall certify to him the name and 

address of the candidate standing highest upon the register of eligibles 
for said position, except that in case of laborers, when a choice by com- 
petition is impracticable, said commission may provide by its rales 
that the selection shall be made by lot from among those candidates 
proved fit by examination. The appointing officer shall notify the com- 
mission of each position to be filled separately and shall fill snch posi- 
tion by the appointment of the person certified to him by said com- 
mission therefor, which appointment shall be on probation for a period 
not more than three months to be fixed by said rules. At any time 
during the period of probation, the appointing officer may discharge a 
person so certified and shall forthwith notify the commission in writ- 
ing of such discharge. If such person is not thus discharged, his ap- 
pointment shall be deemed complete. 

Persons who were engaged in the military and naval service of the 
United States during the years 1861, 1863, 1863, 1864 and 1865, and 
who were honorably discharged therefrom, shall be preferred for ap- 
pointment to civil offices, provided they are found to possess the business 
capacity necessary for the proper discharge of the duties of such office, 
and it shall be the duty of the examiner or commissioner certifying the 
list of eligibles who have taken the examinations provided for in this 
Act, to place the name or names of such persons at the head of the list 
of eligibles to be certified for appointment. 

When there is no eligible list, the appointing officer may, with the 
authority of the commission, make temporary appointments to remain 
in force only until regular appointments under the provisions [of] this 
Act can be made. 

In employment of an essentially temporary and transitory nature, the 
appointing officer may, with the authority of the commission, make tem- 
porary appointments to fill a vacancy, but no such authority shall be 
granted for a period of more than 30 days,, but it may be renewed from 
time to. time by the commission. The commission shall include in its 
annual report, and if thereto required by the Governor, in any special 
report, a statement of all temporary authorities granted or renewed 
during the year or period specified by the Governor, together with a 
statement of the facts in each case because of which such authority was 
granted. 

The acceptance or refusal by an eligible person of a temporary ap- 
pointment shall not affect the standing on the register for permanent 
appointment. 

§ 11. Classified service — what not included.] All officers 
elected by the people; all officers, boards and commissioners appointed 
by the Governor subject to confirmation by the Senate; all officers and 
employes of the General Assembly or either house thereof; judges and 
officers appointed by judges of any court, clerks of court, notaries pub-

dents may be employed under the rules of the Civil Service Commission 
without examination or certification, and a private secretary or stenog- 
rapher in the offices of the dean of men and the dean of women of the 
University of Illinois shall not be included in the classified service. 

§ 12. Ko officer or employe in the classified civil service shall be 
removed or discharged except for cause, upon written charges, and after 
an opportunity to be heard in his own defense. Such charges shall be 
investigated by or before said Civil Service Commission, or by or before 
some officer or board appointed by said commission to conduct such 
investigation. The finding and decision of such commission or of 
such investigating officer or board, when approved by said commission, 
shall be certified to the appointing officer, and shall be forthwith en- 
forced by such officer. Nothing in this Act shall limit the power of 
any officer to suspend a subordinate for a reasonable period, not exceed- 
ing thirty days. Every such suspension shall be without pay: Pro- 
vided, however, that the commission shall have authority to investigate 
every such suspension, and in case of its disapproval thereof, it shall 
have power to restore pay to the employe so suspended. In the course 
of any investigation provided for in this Act each member of the com- 
mission, and of any board so appointed by it, and any officer so ap- 
pointed, shall have the power to administer oaths and shall have power 
to secure by its subpoena both the attendance and testimony of wit- 
nesses, and the production of books and papers. Nothing in this sec- 
tion shall be construed to require such charges in case of laborers or in 
case of persons having the custody of public money for the safe keeping 
of which another person has given bonds. 

§ 14. The commission shall investigate the efficiency of all officers 
and employes and of all groups of officers and employes in the classi- 
fied service and shall report to each officer, board or other authority in 
charge of any institution, office or department of the State government 
its findings and recommendations relative to increasing efficiency and

sion are not carried into effect within a reasonable time, or in case of

tions between the commission and the ofBcer, board or other authority 
in charge of an institution, office or department concerned in any such 
finding or recommendation, the report accompanied by a note of the 
relevant facts shall be transmitted to the Governor by the commission. 
The commission shall investigate the enforcement of this Act and of 
the rules of the commission, the conduct of the appointees in the classi- 
fied service, and the method of administration therein, and may investi- 
gate the nature, tenure and compensation of all offices and places in 
the civil service of the State. In the course of such investigation each 
commissioner shall have power to administer oaths, and said commis- 
sion shall have power to secure by its subpoena both the attendance and 
testimony of witnesses and the production of books and papers.

(House Bill No. 127. Approved June 5, 1911.) 

An Act in regard to hills of lading and to create, define and ptinish cer- 
tain criminal offenses in relation thereto. 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, repre- 
sented in the General Assembly: Bills of lading issued by any common 
carrier shall be governed by this Act. 

§ 2. Every bill must embody within its written or printed terms : 

(a) The date of its issue, 

(b) The name of the person from whom the goods have been received, 

(c) The place where the goods have been received, 

(d) The place to which the goods are to be transported, 

(e) A statement whether the goods received will be delivered to a 
specified person, or to the order of a specified person, 

(f) A description of the goods or of the packages containing them 
which may, however, be in such general terms as are referred to in sec- 
tion 23, and 

(g) The signature of the carrier. 

A negotiable bill shall have the words "order of" printed thereon 
immediately before the name of the person upon whose order the goods 
received are deliverable. 

A carrier shall be liable te any person injured thereby for the damage 
caused by the omission from a negotiable bill of any of the provisions 
required in this section. 

§ 3. A carrier may insert in a bill, issued by him, any other terms 
and conditions, provided that such terms and conditions shall not — 



COMMON CARRIEES. 229 



(a) Be contrary to law or public policy, or 

(b) In any wise impair his obligation to exercise at least that degree 
of care in the transportation and safe-keeping of the goods entrusted 
to him which a reasonably careful man would exercise in regard to 
similar goods of his own. 

§ 4. A bill in which it is stated that the goods are consigned or 
destined to a specified person, is a non-negotiable or straight bill. 

§ 5. A bill in which it is stated that the goods are consigned or des- 
tined to the order of any person named in such bill, is a negotiable or 
order bill. 

. Any provision in such a bill that it is non-negotiable shall not affect its 
negotiability within the meaning of this Act. 

§ 6. Negotiable bills issued in this State for the transportation of 
goods to any place in the United States on the continent of North 
America, except Alaska, shall not be issued in parts or sets. 

If so issued the carrier issuing them shall be liable for failure to de- 
liver the goods described therein to any one who purchases a part for 
value in good faith, even though the purchase be after the delivery of 
the goods by the carrier to a holder of one of the other parts. 

§ 7. When more than one negotiable bill is issued in this State for 
the same goods to be transported to any place in the United States on 
the continent of North America, except Alaska, the word "duplicate" 
or some other word or words indicating that the document is not an 
original bill shall be placed plainly upon the face of every such bill, ex- 
cept the one first issued. A carrier shall be liable for the damage caused 
by his failure so to do to any one who has purchased the bill for value 
in good faith as an original, even though the purchase be after the de- 
livery of the goods by the carrier to the holder of the original bill. 

§ 8. A non-negotiable bill shall have placed plainly upon its face by 
the carrier issuing it "non-negotiable" or "not negotiable." 

This section shall not apply, however, to memoranda or acknowledg- 
ments of an informal character. 

§ 9. The insertion in a negotiable bill of the name of the person to 
be notified of the arrival of the goods shall not limit the negotiability 
of the bill, or constitute notice to a purchaser thereof of any rights or 
equities of such person in the goods. 

§ 10. Except as otherwise provided in this Act, where a consignor 
receives a bill and makes no objection as hereinafter provided to its 
terms or conditions, neither the consignor or any person who accepts 
delivery of the goods, or any person who seeks to enforce any provision 
of the bill, shall be allowed to deny that he is bound by such terms and 
conditions, so far as they are not contrary to law or public policy : 

Provided, that any objection to the lawful terms and conditions of said 
bill shall be made in writing, which only need state the mere fact of such 
objection, by the consignor within three hours after receiving said bill 
and all such bills shall have attached to the same a blank form for such 
objection. Thereupon it shall be the duty of the officer, agent or ser- 



230 COMMON CARRIERS. 



vant of the carrier to take up said bill of lading so objected to, and 
upon request of such officer, agent or servant, it shall be the duty of the 
consignor to surrender such bill of lading and thereupon such officer, 
agent or servant shall issue an unconditional bill under which consignor 
shall pay the lawful freight rate. 

§ 11. A carrier, in the absence of some lawful excuse, is bound to 
deliver goods upon the demand made either by the consignee named in 
the bill for the goods, or if the bill is negotialDle, by the holder thereof, 
if such demand is accompanied by — 

(a) An offer in good faith to satisfy the carrier's lawful lien upon 
the goods, 

(b) An offer in good faith to surrender, properly indorsed, the bill 
which was issued for the goods, if the bill is negotiable, and 

(c) A readiness and willingness to sign, when the goods are de- 
livered, an acknowledgment that they have been delivered, if such signa- 
ture is requested by the carrier. 

In case the carrier refuses or fails to deliver the goods in compliance 
with a demand by the consignee or holder so accompanied, the burden 
shall be upon the carrier to establish the existence of a lawful excuse for 
such refusal or failure. 

§ 12. A carrier is justified, subject to the provisions of the three 
following sections, in delivering goods to one who is — 

(a) A person lawfully entitled to the possession of the goods, or 

(b) The consignee named in a non-negotiable bill for the goods, or 

(c) A person in possession of a negotiable bill for the goods by the 
terms of which the goods are deliverable to his order, or which has been 
endorsed to him or in blank by the consignee or by the mediate or im- 
mediate indorsee of the consignee. 

§ 13. Where a carrier delivers goods to' one who is not lawfully 
entitled to the possession of them, the carrier shall be liable to any one 
having a right of property or possession in the goods if he delivered the 
goods otherwise than as authorized by subdivisions (b) and (c) of the 
preceding section; and, though he delivered the goods as authorized by 
either of said subdivisions, he shall be so liable if prior to such delivery 
he — 

(a) Had been -requested, by or on behalf of a person having a right 
of property or possession in the goods, not to make such delivery, or 

(b) Had information at the time of the delivery that it was to a 
person not lawfully entitled to the possession of the goods. 

A request or information to be effective within the meaning of this 
section must be given to an officer or agent of the carrier, the actual 
or apparent scope of whose duties includes action upon such a request 
or information, and must be given in time to enable the officer or agent 
to whom it is given, acting with reasonable diligence, to stop delivery 
of the goods. 

§ 14. Except as provided in section 27, and except when compelled 
by legal process, if a carrier delivers goods for which a negotiable bill 



COMMON CARRIERS. 331 



had been issued^ the negotiation of which would transfer the right to 
the possession of the goods, and fails to take up and cancel the bill, such 
carrier shall be liable for failure to deliver the goods to any one who for 
value and in good faith purchases such bill, whether such purchaser 
acquired title to the bill before or after the delivery of the goods by the 
carrier, and notwithstanding" delivery was made to the person entitled 
thereto, 

§ 15. Except as provided in section 27, and except when compelled 
by legal process, if a carrier delivers part of the goods for which a 
negotiable bill had been issued and fails either — 

(a) To take up and cancel the bill, or 

(b) To place plainly upon it a statement that a portion of the 
goods has been delivered, with a description, which may be in general 
terms, either of the goods or packages that have been so delivered or of 
the goods or packages which still remain in the carrier's possession, he 
shall be liable for failure to deliver all the goods specified in the bill, 
to any one who for value and in good faith purchases it, whether such 
purchaser acquired title to it before or after the delivery of any portion 
of the goods by the carrier, and notwithstanding such delivery was made 
to the person entitled thereto. 

§ 16. Any alteration, addition or erasure in a bill after its issue 
without authority from the carrier issuing the same, either in writing 
or noted on the bill, shall be void, whatever be the nature and purpose 
of the change, and the bill shall be enforceable according to its original 
tenor. 

§ 17. Where a negotiable bill has been lost or destroyed, a court of 
competent jurisdiction may order the delivery of the goods upon satis- 
factory proof of such loss or destruction and upon the giving of a bond 
with sufficient surety to be approved by the court to protect the carrier 
or any person injured by such delivery from any liability or loss, incurred 
by reason of the original bill remaining outstanding. The court may 
also in its discretion order the payment of the carrier's reasonable costs, 
and counsel fees. 

The delivery of the goods under an order of the court as provided in 
this section, shall not relieve the carrier from liability to a person to 
whom the negotiable bill has been or shall be negotiated for value with- 
out notice of the proceedings or of the delivery of the goods. 

§ 18. A bill upon the face of which the word "duplicate" or some 
other word or words indicating that the document is not an original 
bill is placed plainly shall impose upon the carrier issuing the same the 
liability of one who represents and warrants that such bill is an accurate 
copy of an original bill properly issued, b^it no other liability. 

§ 19. No title to goods or right to their possession, asserted by a 
carrier for his own benefit, shall excuse him from liability for refusing 
to deliver the goods according to the terms of a bill issued for them, 
unless such title or right is derived directly or indirectly from a trans- 
fer made by the consignor or consignee after the shipment, or from the 
carrier's lien. 



232 COMMON CARRIERS. 



§ 20. If more than one person claims the title or possession of goods, 
the carrier may require all known claimants to interplead, either as a 
defense to an action brought against him for non-delivery of the goods, 
or as an original suit, whichever is appropriate. 

§ 21. If some one other than the consignee or person in possession 
of the bill, has a claim to the title or possession of the goods, and the 
carrier has information of such claim, the carrier shall be excused from 
liability for refusing to deliver the goods either to the consignee or 
person in possession of the bill, or to the adverse claimant, until the 
carrier has had a reasonable time to ascertain the validity of the adverse 
claim or to bring legal proceedings to compel all claimants to inter- 
plead. 

§ 22. Except as provided in the two preceding sections and in sec- 
tion 12, no right or title of a third person unless enforced by legal 
process shall be a defence to an action brought by the consignee of a 
non-negotiable bill or by the holder of a negotiable bill against the 
carrier for failure to deliver the goods on demand. 

§ 23. If a bill of lading has been issued by a carrier or on his 
behalf by an agent or employe the scope of whose actual or apparent 
authority includes the issuing of bills of lading, the carrier shall be 
liable to — 

(a) The consignee named in a non-negotiable, or 

(b) The holder of a negotiable bill. 

Who has given value in good faith relying upon the description there- 
in of the goods, for damages caused by the non-receipt by the carrier or 
a connecting carrier of all or part of the goods or tJieir failure to cor- 
respond with the description thereof in the bill at the time of its issue. 

If, however, the goods are described in a bill merely by a statement 
of marks or labels upon them or upon packages containing them, or by 
a statement that the goods are said to be goods of a certain kind or 
quantity, or in a certain condition, or it is stated in the bill that pack- 
ages are said to contain goods of a certain kind or quantity or in a 
certain condition, or that the contents or condition of the contents of 
packages are unknown, or words of like purport are contained in the 
bill, such statements, if true, shall not make liable the carrier issuing 
the bill, although the goods are not of the kind or quantity or in the 
condition which the marks or labels upon them indicate, or of the 
kind or quantity or in the condition they were said to be by the con- 
signor. The carrier may, also, by inserting in the bill the words 
"shipper's load and count" or other words of like purport, indicrate that 
the goods were loaded by the shipper and the description of them made 
by him ; and if such statement be true, the carrier shall not be liable for 
damages caused by the improper loading or by the non-receipt or by the 
mis-description of the goods described in the bill. 

§ 24. If goods are delivered to a carrier by the owner or by a per- 
son whose act in conveying the title to them to a purchaser for value 
in good faith would bind the owner and a negotiable bill is issued for 



COMMON CARKIEKS. 233 



them, they cannot thereafter, while in the possession of the carrier, be 
attached by garnishment or otherwise, or be levied upon under an execu- 
tion, unless the bill be first surrendered to the carrier or its negotia- 
tion enjoined. The carrier shall in no such case be compelled to de- 
liver the actual possession of the goods until the bill is surrendered 
to him or impounded by the court. 

§ 25. A creditor whose debtor is the owner of a negotiable bill 
shall be entitled to such aid from courts of appropriate jurisdiction by 
injunction and otherwise in attaching such bill, or in satisfying the 
claim by means thereof as is allowed at law or in equity in regard to 
property which can not readily be attached or levied upon by ordinary 
legal process. 

§ 26. If a negotiable bill is issued the carrier shall have no lien on 
the goods therein mentioned, except for charges on those goods for 
freight, storage, demurrage and terminal charges, and expenses neces- 
sary for the preservation of the goods or incident to their transportation 
subsequent to the date of the bill, unless the bill expressly enumerates 
other charges for which a lien is claimed. In such case there shall also 
be a lien for the charges enumerated so far as they are allowed by law 
and the contract between the consignor and the carrier. 

§ 27. After goods have been lawfully sold to satisfy a carrier's lien, 
or because they have not been claimed, or because they are perishable or 
hazardous, the carrier shall not thereafter be liable for failure to deliver 
the goods to the consignee or owner of the goods, or to a holder of the 
bill given for the goods when they were shipped, even if such bill be 
negotiable. 

§ 28. A negotiable bill may be negotiated by delivery where, b}' 
the terms of the bill, the carrier undertakes to deliver the goods to the 
order of a specified person, and such person or a subsequent indorsee of 
the bill has indorsed it in blank. 

§ 29. A negotiable bill may be negotiated by the indorsement of the 
person to whose order the goods are deliverable by the tenor of the bill. 
Such indorsement may be in blank or to a specified person. If indorsed 
to a specified person, it may be negotiated again by the indorsement of 
such person in blank or to another specified person. Subsequent nego- 
tiation may be made in like manner. 

§ 30. A bill may be transferred by the holder by delivery, accom- 
panied with an agreement, express or implied, to transfer the title to the 
bill or to the goods represented thereby. 

A non-negotiable bill can not be negotiated, and the indorsement of 
such a bill gives the transferee no additional right. 

§ 31. A negotiable bill may be negotiated by any person in posses- 
sion of the same, however such possession may have been acquired if, by 
the terms of the bill, the carrier undertakes to deliver the goods to the 
order of such person, or if at the time of negotiation the bill is in such 
form that it may be negotiated by delivery. 



234 COMMON CARRIERS. 



§ 33. A person to whom a negotiable bill has been duly negotiated 
acquires thereby — 

(a) Such title to the goods as the person negotiating the bill to him 
had or had ability to convey to a purchaser in good faith for value, and 
also such title to the goods as the consignee and consignor had or had 
power to convey to a purchaser in good faith for value, and 

(b) The direct obligation of the carrier to hold possession of the 
goods for him according to the terms of the bill as fully as if the car- 
rier had contracted directly with him. 

§ 33. A person to whom a bill has been transferred but not nego- 
tiated acquires thereby as against the transferor, the title to the goods, 
subject to the terms of any agreement with the transferor. If the bill 
is non-negotiable, such person also acquires the right to notify the 
carrier of the transfer to him of such bill, and thereby to become the 
direct obligee of whatever obligations the carrier owed to the transferor 
of the bill immediately before the notification. 

Prior to the notification of the carrier by the transferor or transferee 
of a non-negotiable bill, the title of the transferee to the goods and the 
right to acquire the obligation of the carrier may be defeated by garnish- 
ment or by attachment or execution upon the goods by a creditor of the 
transferor, or by a notification to the carrier by the transferor or a 
subsequent purchaser from the transferor of a subsequent sale of the 
goods by the transferor. 

A carrier has not received notification within the meaning of this 
section unless an officer or agent of the carrier, the actual or apparent 
scope of whose duties includes action upon such a notification, has been 
notified; and no notification shall be effective until the officer or agent 
to whom it is given has had time with the exercise of reasonable diligence 
to communicate with the agent or agents having actual possession or 
control of the goods. 

§ 34. Where a negotiable bill is transferred for value by delivery, 
and the indorsement of the transferor is essential for negotiation, the 
transferee acquires a right against the transferor to compel him to in- 
dorse the bill, unless a contrary intention appears. The negotiation shall 
take effect as of the time when the indorsement is actually made. This 
obligation may be specifically enforced. 

§ 35. A person who negotiates or transfers for value a bill by in- 
dorsement or delivery, including one who assigns for value a claim se- 
cured by a bill, unless a contrary intention appears, warrants — 

(a) That the bill is genuine, 

(b) That he has a legal right to transfer it, 

(c) That he has knowledge of no fact which would impair the valid- 
ity or worth of the bill, and 

(d) That he has a right to transfer the title to the goods, and that 
the goods are merchantable or fit for a particular purpose whenever 
such warranties would have been implied, if the contract of the parties 
had been to transfer without a bill the goods represented thereby. 



COMMON CARRIERS. 335 



In the case of an assignment of a claim secured by a bill, the liability 
of the assignor shall not exceed the amount of the claim. 

§ 36. The indorsement of a bill shall not make the indorser liable for 
any failure on the part of the carrier or previous indorsers of the bill 
to fulfill their respective obligations. 

§ 37. A mortgagee or pledgee, or other holder of a bill for security 
who in good faith demands or receives payment of the debt for which 
such bill is security, whether from a party to a draft drawn for such 
debt or from any other person, shall not be deemed by so doing to rep- 
resent or to warrant the genuineness of such bill or the quantity or qual- 
ity of the goods therein described. 

§ 38. The validity of the negotiation of a bill is not impaired by the* 
fact that such negotiations [negotiation] was a breach of duty on the 
part of the person making the negotiation, or by the fact that the owner 
of the bill was deprived of the possession of the same by fraud, accident, 
mistake, duress or conversion, if the person to whom the bill was nego- 
tiated, or a person to whom the bill was subsequently negotiated, gave 
value therefor, in good faith, without notice of the breach of duty or 
fraud, accident, mistake, duress or conversion. 

§ 39. Where a person having sold, mortgaged, or pledged goods 
which are in a carrier's possession and for which a negotiable bill has 
been issued, or having sold, mortgaged, or pledged the negotiable bill 
representing such goods, continues in possession of the negotiable bill, 
the subsequent negotiation thereof by that person under any sale, 
pledge, or other disposition thereof to any person receiving the same in 
good faith, for value and without notice of the previous sale, shall have 
the same effect as if the first purchaser of the goods or bill had ex- 
pressly authorized the subsequent negotiation. 

§ 40. Where goods are shipped by the consignor in accordance with 
a contract or order for their purchase, the form in which the bill is 
taken by the consignor shall indicate the transfer or retention of the 
property or right to the possession of the goods as follows : 

(a) Where by the bill the goods are deliverable to the buyer or to 
his' agent, or to the order of the buyer or of his agent, the consignor 
thereby transfers the property in the goods to the buyer. 

(b) Where by the bill the goods are deliverable to the seller or to his 
agent, or to the order of the seller or of his agent, the seller thereby re- 
serves the property in the goods. But if, except for the form of the bill, 
the property would have passed to the buyer on shipment of the goods, 
the seller's property in the goods shall be deemed to be only for the 
purpose of securing performance by the buyer of his obligations under 
the contract. 

(c) Where by the bill the goods are deliverable to the order of the 
buyer or his agent, but possession of the bill is retained by the seller 
or his agent, the seller thereby reserves a right to the possession of the 
goods, as against the buyer. 



236 COMMON CARRIERS. 



(d) Where the seller draws on the buyer for the price and trans- 
mits the draft and bill together to the buyer to secure acceptance or 
payment of the draft, the buyer is bound to return the bill if he does not 
honor the draft, and if he wrongfully retains the bill he acquires no 
added right thereby. If, however, the bill provides that the goods are 
deliverable to the buyer, or to the order of the buyer, or is endorsed 
in blank or to the buyer by the consignee named therein, one who pur- 
chases in good faith, for value, the bill or goods from the buyer, shall 
obtain the title to the goods, although the draft has not been honored, 
if such purchaser has received delivery of the bill indorsed by the con- 
signee named therein, or of the goods, without notice of the facts making 
the transfer wrongful. 

§ 41. Where the seller of goods draws on the buyer for the price of 
the goods and transmits the draft and a bill of lading for the goods 
either directly to the buyer or through a bank or other agency, unless 
a different intention on the part of the seller appears, the buyer and all 
other parties interested shall be justified in assuming: 

(a) If the draft is by its terms or legal effect payable on demand or 
presentation or at sight, or not more than three days thereafter (whether 
such three days be termed days of grace or not), that the seller in- 
tended to require payment of the draft before the buyer should be en- 
titled to receive or retain the bill. 

(b) If the draft is by its terms payable on time, extending beyond 
three days after demand, presentation or sight (whether such three days 
be terms [termed] days of grace or not), that the seller intended to 
require acceptance, but not payment of the draft before the buyer should 
be entitled to receive or retain the bill. 

The provisions of this section are applicable whether by the terms of 
the bills the goods are consigned to the seller, or to his order, or to the 
buyer, or to his order, or to a third person, or to his order. 

§ 42. Where a negotiable bill has been issued for goods, no seller's 
lien or right of stoppage in transitu shall defeat the rights of any pur- 
chaser for value in good faith to whom such bill has been negotiated, 
whether such negotiation be prior or subsequent to the notification to the 
carrier who issued such bill of the seller's claim to a lien or right of 
stoppage in transitu. Nor shall the carrier be obliged to deliver or justi- 
fied in delivering the goods to an unpaid seller unless such bill is first 
surrendered for cancellation. 

§ 43.' Except as provided in section 42, nothing in this Act shall 
limit the rights and remedies of a mortgagee or lienholder whose mort- 
gage or lien on goods would be valid, apart from this Act, as against 
one who for value and in good faith purchased from the owner, im- 
mediately prior to the time of their delivery to the carrier, the goods 
which are subject to the mortgage or lien and obtained possession of 
them. 

§ 44. Any officer, agent, or servant of a carrier, who with intent to 
defraud issues or aids in issuing a bill knowing that all or any part 



COMMON CAERIERS. 337 



of the goods for which such bill is issued have not been received by 
such carrier, or by an agent of such carrier or by a connecting carrier, 
or are not under the carrier's control at the time of issuing such bill, 
shall be guilty of a crime, and upon conviction shall be punished for each 
offense by imprisonment in the State penitentiary not exceeding five 
years, or by a fine not exceeding five thousand dollars, or by both. 

§ 45. Any officer, agent, or servant of a carrier, who with intent to 
defraud issues or aids in issuing a bill for goods knowing that it contains 
any false statement, shall be guilty of a crime, and upon conviction shall 
be punished for each offense by imprisonment in the State penitentiary 
not exceeding one year, or by a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars, 
or by both. 

§ 46. Any officer, agent, or servant of a carrier, who with intent to 
defraud issues or aids in issuing a duplicate or additional negotiable 
bill for goods in violation of the provisions of section 7, knowing that a 
former negotiable bill for the same goods or any part of them is out- 
standing and uncancelled, shall be guilty of a crime, and upon convic- 
tion shall be punished for each offense by imprisonment in the State 
penitentiary not exceeding five years, or by a fine not exceeding five 
thousand dollars, or by both. 

§ 47. Any person who ships goods to which he has not title, or upon 
which there is a lien or mortgage, and who takes for such goods a nego- 
tiable bill which he afterwards negotiates for value with intent to de- 
ceive and without disclosing his want of title or the existence of the lien 
or mortgage, shall be guilty of a crime, and upon conviction shall be 
punished for each offense by imprisonment in the State penitentiary not 
exceeding one year, or by a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars, or 
by both. 

§ 48. Any person who with intent to deceive negotiates or transfers 
for value a bill knowing that any or all of the goods which by the terms 
of such bill appear to have been received for transportation by the carrier 
which issued the bill, are not in the possession or control of such carrier, 
or of a connecting carrier, without disclosing this fact, by causing said 
fact to be endorsed shall be guilty of a crime, and upon conviction shall 
be punished for each offense by imprisonment in the State penitentiary 
not exceeding five j^ears, or by a fine not exceeding five thousand dol- 
lars, or by both. 

§ 49. Any person who with intent to defraud secures the issue by a 
carrier of a bill knowing that at the time of such issue, any or all of 
the goods described in such bill as received for transportation have not 
been received by such carrier, or an agent of such carrier or a connecting 
carrier, or are not under the carriers control, by inducing an officer, 
agent, or servant of such carrier falsely to believe that such goods have 
been received by such carrier, or are under its control, shall be guilty 
of a crime, and upon conviction shall be punished for each offense by 
imprisonment in the State penitentiary not exceeding five years, or by 
a fine not exceeding five thousand dollars, or by both. 



238 COMMON CARRIERS. 



§ 50. Any person who with intent to defraud issues or aids in issu- 
ing a non-negotiable bill without the words "not negotiable" placed

penitentiary not exceeding five years or by a fine not exceeding five 
thousand dollars, or by both.

fully to the discharge of the duties especially pertaining to his office 
and to the performance of such additional judicial work as he may be 
able to perform. Each associate judge must perform his share of the 
labors and duties appertaining to the office. At least one associate judge 
must be in attendance in one branch court in each district three hours

whose salaries shall be fixed by the majority of the judges : Provided, 
that the salaries of two of said assistants shall not exceed four thousand 
dollars ($4,000) each per annum, and that the salaries of the remaining 
two of said asistants shall not exceed eighteen hundred dollars ($1,800) 
each per annum. Said assistants shall have power to administer oaths 
and shall perform such duties as may be required of them by the chief 
justice, but shall not exercise any judicial powers. It shall be the duty 
of the chief justice and the associate judges to meet together at least 
once in each month, excepting the month of August, in each year, 
at such hour and place as may be designated by the chief justice, and 
at such other times as may be required by the chief justice, for the con- 
sideration of such matters pertaining to the administration of justice 
in said court as may be brought before them. At such meetings they 
shall receive and investigate, or cause to be investigated, all complaints 
presented to them pertaining to the said court, and to the officers thereof, 
and shall take such steps as they may deem necessary or proper with 
respect thereto, and they shall have the power and it shall be their duty 
to adopt or cause to be adopted all such rules and -regulations for the 
proper administration of justice in said court as to them may seem 
expedient. 

The salary of the chief justice shall be ten thousand dollars ($10,000)

p. m. of each working day during the year, excepting that on Saturdays 
the clerk may close such of his offices as he may deem proper at twelve 
o'clock m. : Provided, however, that for the purpose of receiving and 
filing papers and issuing writs and the performance of other work in 
criminal and quasi criminal cases, the chief justice may require the at- 
tendance, during additional hours of each day, of such number of deputy 
clerks as may be necessary for that purpose. The clerk shall maintain, 
in his principal office in the First district, a bureau of information, to- 
which any attorney at law or any party to any suit in said court may 



264 COURTS. 



apply, either in person, or by telephone, or otherwise, for any informa- 
tion respecting the proceedings in such suit, or the papers filed therein, 
which such attorney or party ma}^ deem necessary and by means of which 
bureau such attorne}^ or party may obtain such information without 
charge being made therefor : Provided, hoivever, that the clerk shall not 
be personally responsible for any mistake made by any deputy clerk with 
respect to such information. Until otherwise provided by the rules 
which may be adopted under the provisions of this Act, the powers, 
duties and liabilities, the oath of office and the bond and conditions 
thereof of such clerk shall be the same, as near as may be, as those pre- 
scribed by law for clerks of courts by the Act entitled, "An Act to revise 
the law in relation to clerks of courts," approved March 25, 1874, and 
in force July 1, 1874. He shall be commissioned by the Governor. When 
a vacancy occurs in the office of the clerk and the unexpired term exceeds 
one 3'ear, the judges shall appoint a clerk pro t&mfore, who shall qualify 
by giving bond and taking the oath as required by law, of the clerk, 
and thereupon such appointee shall perform all the duties required of a 
duly elected clerk of said court, and shall receive a like salary, and shall 
hold such office until some person is elected and c|ualified according to law 
to fill such vacancy. Whenever any such vacancy occurs, the chief jus- 
tice shall forthwith notify the Governor thereof, who, upon receiving 
such notice, shall, as soon thereafter as may be practicable, issue a writ 
of election, as'in other cases. When a vacancy occurs in the office of the 
clerk and the unexpired term is less than one year, the judges shall 
appoint a clerk pro tempore, who shall qualify by giving bond and taking 
the oath as required by law of the clerk, and thereupon such appointee 
shall perform all the duties required of a duly elected clerk of said 
court and shall receive a like salary, and shall hold such office until some 
person is elected and qualified according to law to fill such vacancy. 
The salary of the clerk shall be as fixed by the city council until the first 
Monday of December, A. D. 1912, and thereafter it shall be nine thous- 
and dollars ($9,000.00) per annum. Such salary shall be payable in 
monthly installments out of the city treasury. All expenses incurred 
by the clerk for legal services rendered to him in matters relating to his 
official duties, and all expenses incident to proceedings in court brought

§ 16. That there shall be a bailiff of said municipal court whose 
term of office shall be six (6) years and until his successor shall be 
elected and qualified and who shall be elected on the first Tuesday after 
the first Monday of November, A. D. 1906, and every six years there- 
after. He shall perform with respect to said municipaT court the duties 
usually performed by sheriffs in respect to attendance upon and service 
and execution of the process, and obedience of the lawful orders and 
directions of a circuit court. He shall give his personal attention to 
the performance of the duties of his office. He shall maintain an office 
in each district, and each office shall be kept open for the transaction of 



COURTS. 365 



business from half past eight a. m. to five o'clock p. m. of each working- 
day during the year, excepting that on Saturdays the bailiff may close 
such of his offices as he may deem proper at twelve o'clock m. Until 
otherwise provided by the rules which may be adopted under the pro- 
visions of this Act, the powers, duties and liabilities, the oath of office 
and the bonds and conditions thereof of such bailiff shall be the same, 
as near as may be, as those prescribed by law for the sheriffs, with 
respect to attendance upon, and service and execution of the process, and 
obedience of the lawful orders and directions of a circuit court. He 
shall be commissioned by the Governor. When a vacancy occurs in the 
office of bailiff, and the unexpired term exceeds one year, the judges 
shall appoint a bailiff pro' tempore, who shall qualify by giving bond and 
taking the oath as required by law of the bailiff, and thereupon such 
appointee shall perform all the duties required of a duly elected bailiff 
of said court, and shall receive a like salary, and shall hold such office 
imtil some person is elected and qualified according to law to fill such 
vacancy. Whenever any such vacancy occurs, the chief justice shall 
forthwith notify the Governor thereof, who, upon receiving such notice, 
shall, as soon thereafter as may be practicable, issue a writ of election, 
as in other cases. When a vacancy occurs in the office of bailiff, and the 
unexpired term is less than one year, the judges shall appoint a bailiff' 
■pro tempore, Avho shall qualify by giving bond and taking the oath re- 
quired by law of the bailiff, and thereupon such appointee shall per- 
form all the duties required of a duly elected bailiff' of said court, and 
shall receive a like salary, and shall' hold such office until some person is 
elected and qualified according to law to fill such vacancy. It shall be 
unnecessary to serve any process of summons upon the bailiff in any 
suit against him commenced in the municipal court. In lieu of the 
service of such process, the clerk shall notify the bailiff of the com- 
mencement of such suit, and the bailiff shall thereupon forthwith enter 
his appearance therein, such entry of appearance to be made without any 
advance payment of costs. The salary of the bailiff shall be as fixed by 
the city council until the first Monday of December, A. D. 1912, and 
thereafter it shall be nine thousand nine hundred and sixty dollars ($9,- 
960.00) per annum. Such salary shall be payable in monthly install- 
ments out of the city treasury. The bailiff may emplov an attorney 
at a salary not exceeding three thousand dollars ($3,000.00) per an- 
num, which salary, together with all expenses incurred by the bailiff in 
prosecuting or defending suits brought by or against him in his official 
capacity, shall be paid out of the city treasury. And, in the event of the 
bailiff going out of office, or his death, resignation or removal, all suits 
commenced by him or against him, now pending in any cburt, and suits 
that may be commenced by or against him in his official capacity, shall 
be prosecuted or defended, as the case may be, by such bailiff, or his 
legal representatives, at the expense of the city of Chicago, and such 
expense, together with all costs of such suit, shall be paid out of the city 
treasurv. 



266 COURTS. 



§ 17. That said bailiff shall appoint such rmmber of deputies as 
may be determined, from time to time, by a majority of the judges of 
the municipal court, by orders signed by them and spread upon the 
records of said court. The salaries of deputy bailiffs shall be fixed, 
from time to time, by orders signed by a majority of the judges of the 
municipal court and spread upon the records of the court, and shall 
be payable out of the city treasury in monthly installments: Provided, 
however, that the salary of the chief deputy bailifE shall be four thou- 
sand dollars ($4,000) per annum, and that the salary of the assistant 
chief deputy bailifE shall be two thousand five hundred dollars ($3,500) 
per annum: And, provided, further, that the bailiff may appoint three 
additional deputy bailiffs; that the salary of one such deputy bailiff 
shall be two thousand five hundred dollars ($2,500) per annum, and 
the salary of the remaining two of said deputy bailiffs shall be two 
thousand dollars ($2,000) each per annum; and that the salary of no 
other deputy bailiff shall exceed two thousand dollars ($2,000.00) per 
annum. Such deputy bailiffs shall take the same oath or affirmation 
required of the bailiff of said municipal court, and shall give bonds, 
to be approved by the chief justice of said court, conditioned, as near 
as may be, like the bond required of the bailiff. The bailiff and deputy 
bailiffs of the municipal court shall be ex officio police officers of the 
city of Chicago.. Any deputy bailiff shall be subject to removal at any 
time by an order signed by a majority of the judges of the municipal 
court and spread upon the records of said court. Any deputy bailiff 
may likewise be removed by the bailiff: Provided, however, that any 
deputy bailiff so removed may be restored to his position by an order 
signed by a majority of the judges of said municipal court and spread 
upon the records of said court. The number of deputy bailiffs may be 
reduced at any time by an order signed by a majority of the judges of 
said municipal court and spread upon the records of said court. Every 
police officer of the city of Chicago and every police officer employed 
by any board of park commissioners whose territory is situated in whole 
or in part within said city, shall be ex officio a deputy bailiff of the 
municipal court and shall perform, from time to time, such duties in 
respect to criminal and quasi criminal cases within the jurisdiction of 
said court as may be required of him by said court or any judge thereof. 
The bailiff may appoint a special deputy to serve any summons issued 
out of the municipal court, by endorsement thereon substantially as 

follows : "I hereby appoint my special 

deputy to serve the within writ," which shall be dated and signed by 
the bailiff. Such special deputy shall make return of the time and 
manner of service of such writ, under his oath, and for making a false 
return, he shall be guilty of perjury and be punished accordingly. 

§ 22. That the orders, judgments and decrees of the municipal court 
in all cases may be reviewed upon appeals to or writs of error from the 
appellate court and the Supreme Court in the same manner and upon 
the same terms, as near as may be, as the orders, judgments and decrees 
of city courts in like cases. 



COURTS. 267 



The time within which a writ of error may be sued out in any case 
of the fourth or fifth class shall be limited to thirty days after the 
entry of the final order or judgment complained of. Upon the suing 
out of any writ of error in any criminal case, capital cases excepted, and 
the filing of the same in the municipal court, the municipal court may, 
■ in its discretion, admit any defendant to bail pending the determina- 
tion of such writ of error. But no appeal shall be allowed in any case 
unless the same be prayed for within twenty days after the entry of 
the order, judgment or decree appealed from, and no assignment of 
error in the Supreme Court or in the appellate court- in any case shall 
be allowed which shall call in question the decision of the municipal 
court in respect to any matter pertaining to the practice in said court: 
Provided, however, that the Supreme Court or the appellate court, as 
the case may be, may grant relief from any error of the municipal court 
in respect to a matter of practice therein in any case where, in the 
opinion of the Supreme Court or appellate court, such relief is neces- 
sary to prevent a failure of justice. 

No order or judgment sought to be reviewed shall be reversed unless 
the Supreme Court or appellate court, as the case may be, shall be 
satisfied, from the record in said cause, that such order or judgment is 
contrary to the law or the evidence or that such order or judgment 
resulted from substantial errors of said municipal court directly affect- 
ing the matters at issue between parties, in which last mentioned case 
the Supreme Court or appellate court, as the case may be, may enter 
such order or judgment as, in its opinion, the municipal court ought to 
have entered, or it may reverse the said order or judgment and remand 
the case to the municipal court for further proceedings. Any party to 
any case, of the fourth or fifth class against whom there has been ren- 
dered any final order or judgment of the municipal court and who shall 
desire to obtain a review of such final order or judgment by a writ of 
error and who shall, for that purpose, also desire a stay of execution, 
may, upon suing out of the Supreme Court or appellate court, as the 
case may be, a writ of error in such case and filing the same in the 
municipal court, obtain from the municipal court a stay of execution 
of such order or judgment for ninety (90) days after the entry thereof 
by the giving of a bond with a sufficient surety or sureties to be approved 
by a judge of the municipal court conditioned for the due prosecution of 
such writ of error and otherwise, as near as may be, as an appeal bond 
in case of an appeal from a similar order or judgment of a circuit court 
is required to be conditioned. No such bond, however, need be given 
in any case if the party suing out such writ of error shall not desire 
a stay of execution. jSTo other or further stay of proceedings or execu- 
tion in any such case shall be allowed by the municipal court, but the 
Supreme Court or the appellate court, or any judge thereof, may 
allow a supersedeas as in other cases, but upon the allowance of an}^ 
supersedeas, when any bond has been given as above provided, no 
additional bond shall be required, and such supersedeas shall be oper- 



268 couETS. 



ative until the final determination of such writ of error. The party 
suing out any writ of error within thirty days after the entry of the 
order or judgment sought to be reviewed shall not be required to serve 
upon the opposite party an}^ scire facias to hear errors, but in lieu there- 
of shall, within five days after the issuance of the writ of error, file the 
same with the clerk of the municipal court, and make to the Supreme 
Court or the appellate court, as the case may be, proof of such filing, 
and such writ of error so filed shall be notice to the opposite party of 
the suing out and prosecution of such writ of error. 

No exceptions to the rulings or decisions of the municipal court on 
any matter whatever, which appear to have been made against the ob- 
jection of the party complaining thereof, shall be necessary to the right 
of any party to a review of such rulings or decisions in the appellate 
or Supreme Court upon their merits, but it shall be the duty of the 
appellate or Supreme Court, as the case may be, to decide such case upon 
its merits, notwithstanding no exceptions were taken in the municipal 
court. 

The evidence admitted and offered on the hearing of any motion or 
matter or on the trial of any cause in the municipal court, the rulings 
of the court thereon and any other proceedings not otherwise of record 
may be made matter of record for review by the appellate or Supreme 
Court, by being embodied in a statement of facts. Said statement of 
facts may be the stipulation of parties as to such facts as are deemed 
necessary or material to a proper review of the cause, a complete steno- 
graphic or other report of all said evidence, rulings and proceedings, or 
such abstract or abridgment thereof as is deemed sufficient for a proper 
review of the cause. Said statement of facts may contain a stipulation 
as to part of the facts, a complete stenographic or other report as to 
other facts, or as to the testimony of certain witnesses, and an abstract 
or abridgment as to still other facts or as to the testimony of other wit- 
nesses. Concise statements of questions of law arising on any of said 
facts and the decisions of the court thereon may be inserted in said 
statement of facts. The originals of affidavits, depositions and exhibits, 
, or copies thereof, may be inserted in said statement of facts, or may 
accompany the same and be identified by proper reference. Said state- 
ment of facts shall have attached thereto a certificate, signed by the 
judge before whom said proceedings were had, or otherwise, as provided 
in this section, authenticating the same as a statement of the facts 
in said cause, and where said statement is not a complete report as 
.aforesaid, said certificate shall certify that said statement contains all 
such facts as are necessary or material to a proper review of said cause, 
or as are necessary or material to a proper review of certain questions 
involved in said cause. Said statement of facts shall be prepared and 
tendered to the judge for certification by the party desiring- the review 
of any cause in the appellate or Supreme Court, within thirty days after 
the entry of the final judgment, order or decree of the municipal court. 
But the time to file such statement of facts may be extended by succes- 



COURTS. 269 



sive orders of court, provided applicatiou for such extension shall be 
made during said thirty daj^s or during any extension of the time to file 
the same. Any party deeming said statement of facts insufficient may 
prepare and tender a supplemental statement of facts for certification 
within such time as may be alloAved by order of court entered within 
thirty days after the filing of the original statement of facts. An;^^ 
such statement of facts or supplemental statement of facts shall bo 
deemed sufficiently authenticated if signed by the judge before whom 
the cause was tried, or the matter in question occurred, and in case 
the judge before whom the cause was tried is, by reason of death, sick- 
ness, expiration of term of office, or other disability, unable to hear and 
pass upon a motion for a new trial in the cause and sign a statement of 
facts, or unable to settle said statement of facts and sign the same, then 
any other judge of the municipal court, if the evidence in such case is 
taken in stenographic notes, or if said judge is satisfied b}^ any other 
means that he can pass upon such motion and allow a true statement 
of facts, shall pass upon said motion and allow and sign such state- 
ment of facts ; and his ruling upon such motion and allowance and sign- 
ing of such statement of facts shall be as valid as if such ruling and 
allowance and signing had been made by the judge before whom such 
cause was tried. But if said judge is satisfied that owing to the fact 
that he did not preside at the trial, or for any other cause he cannot 
fairly pass upon said motion and allow and sign said statement of facts, 
then he may, in his discretion, grant a new trial to the party moving 
therefor. Such statement of facts, instead of a copy, shall be incor- 
porated in any transcript of record to be filed in the Supreme or appel- 
late court, and upon the final determination of the cause in such court 
[shall] be remitted to the municipal court. 

§ 28. That, until otherwise provided by the rules of the municipal 
court, cases of the first class mentioned in section two (2) of this Act 
shall be commenced and prosecuted in said municipal court in the same 
manner in which similar suits and 23roceedings are required to be com- 
menced and prosecuted in the circuit courts, except as is herein otherwise 
prescribed, and excepting also in the following particulars: 

First — The summons, when the first process is a summons, or the writ 
when the first process is a writ, shall be directed to the bailiff to execute 
and shall be returnable upon some Monday at least five days, and not 
more than twenty days, after the date thereof. 

Second — Service of such summons or writ shall be made by delivering 
a copy thereof to the defendant, if an individual, and informing him of 
the contents thereof; an incorporated company may in cases of the first 
class, be served with process by leaving a copy thereof with its president, 
if he can be found in the city of Chicago, or if the president cannot be 
found in the city of Chicago, then by leaving a copy of the process with 
any clerk, secretary, superintendent, general agent, cashier, director,, 
engineer, conductor, station agent or any agent of said company found 
in the city of Chicago. The receiver or receivers of an}^ incorporated 



270 COURTS. 



compan}', or a trustee or trustees operating, managing or controlling a 
railwa}' ma,j, in cases of the first class, be served by leaving a copy of 
such process with any clerk, secretary, superintendent, general agent, 
engineer, conductor, station agent or any agent in the employ of such 
receiver, receivers, trustee or trustees, who may be found in the city of 
Chicago. 

Third — Notice to the defendant by publication may be given under 
like circumstances and in the same manner as is provided by law for 
similar cases in the circuit courts, but the notice published, in lieu of 
stating the time of the return of the summons or writ, shall state the 
date on or before which the defendant is required to appear, which date 
shall be some Monday not less than thirty or more than sixty days after 
the date of the first publication of notice, as the plaintiff may require. 

Fo'urth — No such suit shall be commenced in the municipal court un- 
less the defendant, if there be but one defendant, resides or is found 
within the city of Chicago, or if the defendant be a corporation, unless 
its principal ofiice is within said city; but if the defendant be a corpora- 
tion not having a principal ofiice in the city of Chicago, such suit may 
be brought in the municipal court wherever service of process may be 
had within the city upon any officer, agent or employe of such corpora- 
tion upon whom service of process might be had if issued in a suit com- 
menced in the circuit court. 

Fifth — The provisions of paragraph fourth above, shall not apply to 
attachment suits, replevin suits or cases of distress for rent, where it 
shall appear by affidavit filed in the cause or by the return of the officer 
having the writ that the defendant is not a resident of this State, or has 
departed from this State, or on due inquiry cannot be found, or is con- 
cealed within this State so that process cannot be served upon him and 
such suits may be brought in the municipal court when any property 
of the defendant is levied upon, or distrained, or any garnishee resides 
or is found within the city of Chicago, or, if the suit be a replevin suit, 
when the property sued for is replevied within the city of Chicago. 

Sixth — When there are several defendants, one of whom resides or is 
found or is served with process in the city of Chicago, a summons or writ 
may be issued to the sheriff of Cook county for any defendant residing 
or to be found in said county, but outside of the city of Chicago, or to 
the sheriff of any other county for any defendant residing or to be found 
in such other count}^, and service of any summons or writ so issued shall 
be made in the same manner as herein required in the case of a sum- 
mons or writ directed to the bailiff: Provided, hoivever, that no judg- 
ment shall, in any case, be rendered against any defendant served with 
process outside of the city of Chicago, unless judgment be also rendered 
against a defendant served within said city of Chicago. 

Seventh — The plaintiff shall file his declaration within three days 
after the commencement of the suit, in default whereof the suit shall 
be dismissed unless the court by an order entered in said suit shall 
extend the time for filing such declaration. 



COURTS. 371 



Eighth — The defendant shall, in case he shall have been served with 
process or summons, or with the writ, three days or more prior to the 
return day thereof, enter his appearance on or before such return day 
and shall demur or plead to the declaration or the complaint on or be- 
fore the Monday succeeding such return day ; but in case the summons 
or writ shall have been served less than three days prior to the return 
day the defendant shall not be required to enter his appearance until 
on or before the first Monday succeeding such return day and stiall 
not be required to plead to the declaration or complaint until on or 
before the second Monday after such return day. In case the time for 
filing the declaration or complaint shall be extended by the court, the 
time for the defendant to demur or plead to the same shall be extended 
until the second Monday succeeding the expiration of such extension 
of time. The time within which the defendant is required to demur or 
plead may be extended by the court in its discretion. In case the 
defendant shall fail to enter his appearance or to demur or plead with- 
in the time thus required, the plaintiff shall be entitled to judgment 
by default. 

Ninth — The judges of said municipal court may, by rules adopted 
in the manner prescribed by this Act, provide that the practice in cases 
of the first class shall be the same as in this Act provided for cases of 
the fourth class. But all cases provided for in this section shall be 
commenced, prosecuted and disposed of in the First district. 

§ 29. That cases of the fourth class mentioned in section two (2) 
of this Act shall be brought and prosecuted in the district in which tlie 
defendant, or one of the defendants, if there is more than one defend- 
ant, resides or is found. If the defendant be a corporation having its 
principal office in the city of Chicago, in the district in which its 
principal office is located; but if the defendant be a corporation not 
having a principal office in the city of Chicago, suit may be brought 
in any district where process can be served on the president, clerk, 
secretary, superintendent, general agent, cashier, director, engineer, 
conductor, station agent, or any agent of said company, found in that 
district. Service may be had upon any incorporated company, by leav- 
ing a copy of the process with its president, if he can be found in the 
city of Chicago, or if the president cannot be found in the city of 
Chicago, then by leaving a copy of the process with any clerk, secretary, 
superintendent, general agent, cashier, director, engineer, conductor, 
station agent, or any agent of said company found in the city of Chi- 
cago. The receiver or receivers of any incorporated company, or a 
trustee or trustees operating, managing or controlling a railway, may 
be served by leaving a copy of such process with any clerk, secretary, 
superintendent, general agent, engineer, conductor, station agent, or; 
any agent in the employ of such receiver, receivers, trustee or trustees, 
who may be found in the city of Chicago. If, in any such case, there 
is more than one defendant and one defendant resides or is found 



272 COURTS. 



within the district in wliicli suit is brought or is properly served with 
process therein, tlie process of sucli municipal coiurt may be served 
upon the remaining defendant or defendants at any place within said 
city of Chicago. But no suit against the city of Chicago or any other 
municipal corporation shall be brought in any other than the first dis- 
trict. If, in any case where there is more than one defendant, process 
is duly served upon one or more defendants and returned not served 
as to another defendant or other defendants, the suit shall proceed 
as in like cases in the circuit court. But the requirements that the 
defendant, if there be but one defendant, or one of the defendants if 
there be more than one defendant, must reside or be found within the 
district in which such suit is brought, shall not apply to attachment 
suits, replevin suits or cases of distress for rent, which suits may be 
brought in any district when any property of the defendant is found, 
levied upon, replevied or distrained within such district, or any gar- 
nishee resides or is found in such district, and service of process may 
be had on any defendant, or defendants, anywhere in the city of Chi- 
cago, nor shall it apply to forcible entry and detainer suits, whicli 
suits may be brought in any district in which the property, the pos- 
session of which is sought to be recovered, is situated, and service ol 
process may be had anywdiere in the city of Chicago, and notice may be 
given in the manner prescribed by this Act. When, upon the com- 
plaint of any defendant, it shall be made to appear to the municipal 
court in any district, that the suit has been improperly brought therein, 
the court shall not be required on that account to dismiss the suit, if 
the municipal court in any district could properly have jurisdiction 
thereof, but in such case the court may cause such suit to be transferred 
to the proper district and the court in the district to Avhich the same 
is transferred shall proceed therewith as if the same had been origkialh' 
commenced in said district: Provided, lioivever, that the court may. 
in its discretion, require the plaintiff to pay the costs of the defendant 
paid by him prior to such transfer: And^ provided, further, that when- 
ever a trial by jury is demanded in any case, whether civil, criminal 
or qimsi criminal, the court may, in its discretion, direct the trial of 
said cause to be had in the First district, and for that purpose may 
cause said case to be transferred to the First district, to be there tried 
and disposed of. 

§ 30. That every suit at law in the municipal court other than a 
case of the second class, or a case of the third class, or a case of the 
fifth class, or a bastardy case, mentioned in section two (2) of this Act, 
shall be tried by the cottrt without a jury unless the plaintiff, at the 
time he commences his suit, or the defendant at the time he enters his 
appearance, shall file with the clerk a demand in writing of a trial by 
jury, which demand, however, may be withdrawn by the party filing the 
same at any time before the trial. Every civil suit at law of the second 
class shall be tried by the court without a jury unless the respective 
parties, or one of them, shall, at the time of entering their or his appear- 



COURTS. 213 



ance in the municipal court, file with the clerk a demand in writing of 
a trial by jury. If the plaintiff shall have demanded a trial by jury as 
herein provided, the suit shall be tried by jury unless both parties shall 
waive the same. Every person desirous of suffering a non-suit, shall be 
barred therefrom unless he do so before the jury retires from the bar, 
or, if the case is tried before the court without a jury, before the case is 
submitted for final decision. 

§ 32. That the municipal court in any civil suit pending therein at 
any time before trial or final hearing, may permit the filing therein of 
interrogatories to be answered by any party to such suit, or any person 
for whose immediate benefit such suit is prosecuted or defended, or by 
the directors, officers, superintendent, or managing agents of any corpo- 
ration which is a party to the record of the suit, at the instance of the 
adverse party or parties, or any of them, and may require an answer 
under oath to all such interrogatories as the party to be interrogated 
might be required to answer if called as a witness upon the trial or 
hearing of such suit, but the party filing such interrogatories shall not 
be concluded by the answers thereto if he shall elect to introduce the 
same, or any or either of them, upon the trial or final hearing. If the 
plaintiff or plaintiff's fail or refuse to answer sufficiently interrogatories 
propounded to them by the defendant or defendants when so ordered 
to do by the court, the court may dismiss the suit, or if the defendant or 
defendants have pleaded a set-off the court may enter judgment against 
the plaintiffs upon the affidavits of the defendants to their set-off. If 
the defendant or defendants fail or refuse to answer sufficiently inter- 
rogatories propounded to them by the plaintiff or plaintiffs when or- 
dered so to do by the court, the court may strike their pleadings from the 
files and enter judgment as in case of default, upon the plaintiff's affi- 
davit of claim. Or the court may proceed by contempt proceedings 
against either such party refusing to answer. 

§ 48. That the practice and proceedings in the municipal court, in 
cases of attachment, garnishment, replevin, distress for rent, and forci- 
ble detainer, included within the cases of the fourth class mentioned in 
section two (2) of this Act, shall be the same, as near as may be, as 
that which is now prescribed by law for similar cases in other courts of 
record, except as otherwise provided in this Act, and also except as 
follows : 

First — There shall be no written pleadings, excepting such as are re- 
quired by law in similar cases before justices of the peace, other than the 
affidavits in attachment, garnishment and replevin, copies of the distress 
warrant in cases of distress for rent, the complaint in forcible detainer, 
and such other written pleadings or statements as may be required from 
time to time by the rules or regulations of the municipal court, and the 
writ and summons shall be made returnable, and shall be served in like 
manner, as the summons in other cases of such class in the municipal 
court, except in cases of forcible entry and detainer, in which cases the 



-18 L 



274 COURTS. 



summons shall be served in like manner as is not [now] provided by 
law in similar cases before justices of the peace; and in cases of replevin 
where the value of the property does not exceed two hundred dollars 
($200.00) and in cases of forcible entry and detainer, and in cases of 
attachment, garnishment and distress for rent where the amount claimed 
by the plaintiff does not exceed two hundred dollars ($200.00), posting 
and publication may be had as in like cases before justices of the peace, 
and in like maimer, as [and] in all other cases notice by publication may 
be given in the manner prescribed by law for like cases in a circuit court; 
alias and pluries writs may be issued under like circumstances as alias 
and pluries summonses in other cases of the fourth class. 

Second — In attachment cases the defendant, at the time of his ap- 
pearing in person, or of his entering his appearance in writing, if he 
shall desire to be permitted to present any set-off or counter-claim, shall 
file a statement thereof. 

Third — In forcible detainer cases the plaintiffs may unite with his 
claim for possession of the property any claim for rent or damages for 
withholding possession of the same. 

§ 50e. That any judge of the municipal court to whom application 
is made for a warrant, capias or writ of attachment, in any case of crim- 
inal or quasi criminal nature, when he is not presiding in court, shall 
have power and authority to issue such warrant, capias or writ of attach- 
ment and sign the same with his own name as judge of the municipal 
court, and indorse thereon the amount of bail in which defendant shall 
be held, which warrant, capias or writ of attachment, when so signed 
by the judge, shall have the same force and effect as if the same were 
issued and sign'ed by the clerk of the court. Any, complaint or affidavit, 
received by such judge upon the issuance of such warrant, capias or 
writ of attachment shall be filed with the clerk as soon as may be after 
the issuing of such warrant, capias or writ of attachment. 

§ 62. That it shall be the duty of the chief justice of the municipal 
court to superintend the keeping of the records of said court. He shall 
have power and authority to prescribe abbreviated and amplified forms 
of entries of orders, judgments and decrees in the municipal court, which 
abbreviated forms shall stand for and represent the respective ampli- 
fied forms thereof. The entry by any branch court of any order, judg- 
ment or decree in such abbreviated form shall, in legal effect, be the 
adoption by the court of the prescribed amplified form corresponding 
to such ablDreviated form, and shall have the same force and effect as 
if such order, judgment or decree were written out in full in the records 
of said court. Said amplified forms shall in all cases constitute the true 
record of the court. Said chief justice shall have power and authority 
to prescribe any rules and regulations concerning the adoption and use of 
any abbreviated and amplified forms or orders, judgments and decrees 
that are not inconsistent with this Act. 

§ 63. That the judgments, orders and decrees of the municipal 
court shall have the same force, be of the same effect, be liens upon real

same manner as the judgments, orders and decrees of the circuit court of 
Cook county, except as is otherwise in this Act provided. No judgment, 
order or decree of the municipal court, tlie amount of which — exclusive 
of costs — is, at the date of rendition thereof, less than two hundred dol- 
lars, shall be a lien upon real estate or any interest therein excepting 
from the time of the filing in the office of the recorder of deeds or regis- 
trar of titles of Cook county, or registrar of titles or clerk of a court of 
record, in any other county in this State, of a certified transcript or 
certificate as provided for in this Act. Upon the filing in the office of

court of record in any other county in this State of a transcript, certi- 
fied under the hand and official seal of the clerk of the municipal court, 
of any judgment, order or decree of the municipal court, said judgment, 
order or decree shall thenceforth have the same force, be of the same 
effect, be a lien upon unregistered real estate or any interest therein 
throughout such county to the same extent and under the same circum- 
stances as a judgment, order or decree of the circuit court of such county. 
JSTo judgment, order or decree of the municipal court shall be a lien upon 
or affect registered land or any estate or interest therein, until a certifi- 
cate under the hand and official seal of the clerk of the municipal court, 
stating the date and purport of the judgment, order or decree, or a certi- 
fied copy of such judgment, order or decree, is filed in the office of the 
registrar of titles of the county in which the land is situated, and a 
memorial of the same is entered upon the register of the last certificate 
of the title to be affected. The recorder of deeds of Cook county shall 
provide and keep in his office for said municipal court well bound books 
for entering therein an alphabetical docket of all judgments, orders and 
decrees rendered in said municipal court, as is now required by law for 
docketing judgments, orders and decrees rendered in the circuit courts, 
and shall forthwith, after the filing of any transcript herein provided 
for, enter the same, together with the hour, day, month and year of the 
filing of such certified transcript, and the municipal court general num- 
ber of the case in which rendered. In any case an execution issued on 
any judgment, order or decree of the municipal court, when against 
lands and tenements, goods and chattels within the city of Chicago, shall 
be directed to the bailiff ; or, in case he is disqualified from acting, then 
to the sheriff of Cook county, and shall be a lien upon all the personal 
property of the person against whom the judgment is obtained, situated 
within the city of Chicago, from the time it is delivered to the bailiff, 
or to the sheriff, to the same extent as an execution issued out of the 
circuit court of Cook county, when delivered to the sheriff, and may 
be levied upon the property, real or personal, of said person, situated at 
any place within the city of Chicago, to the same extent as an execution 
issued out of the circuit court of Cook county. But no execution upon 
a judgment, order or decree shall become a lien upon registered land.

said real estate, and a certificate of the fact of such levy shall be filed 
with the registrar of titles of the county in which such real estate is 
situated, and a memorial thereof shall be entered upon the register of 
the last certificate of the title to be afEected. Executions against lands, 
tenements, goods and chattels outside of the city of Chicago shall be 
directed to the sheriff; or, in case he is disqualified from acting, to the 
coroner of the county in which such lands, tenements, goods and chattels 
are situated. Any execution issued on any judgment of which a tran- 
script has been filed in the office of the recorder of deeds of Cook county, 
or in the office of any clerk of any court of record of any other county 
in this State, shall, throughout the county in which said transcript is 
filed as aforesaid, be of the same force, have the same effect and be ex-

Ai^ Act providing for a system of pro'hation; for the appointment and 

coimpensation of prohaiion officers, and aadhorizing the suspension- 

of final judgment and the imposition of sentence upon persons found 

guilty of certain defined crimes and offenses, and legalizing their 

ultimate discharge without punishment. 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, repre- 
sented in the General Assembly: That all courts having criminal and 
quasi criminal jurisdiction^ shall have power to deal in the manner 
hereinafter provided with' all offenders, whether adult or juvenile, 
brought within the jurisdiction of said courts, respectively, for any 
of the offenses hereinafter specified, but that this Act shall not be con- 
strued as limiting or repealing an Act entitled, "An Act to regulate 
the treatment and control of dependent, neglected and delinquent chil- 
dren," approved April 21, 1899, in force July 1, 1899, or the Act^ 
amendatory thereof, or as restricting the jurisdiction conferred by 
said Act. 

§ 2. Any defendant, adult or juvenile, who has never previously 
been convicted of any crime or misdemeanor, who has entered a plea 
of guilty or been found guilty by the verdict of a jury or the finding 
of a court of any of the hereinafter enumerated offenses or crimes, 
may, after a motion for a new trial has been overruled, and nothing 
remains to be done by the court except to pronounce sentence, request 
the judge who presided at his trial, to be admitted to release on proba- 
tion, according to the provisions of this Act. Power to release on pro-

§ 3. Orders granting or refusing release on probation shall be 
entered of record. Application for release on probation may, in the 
discretion of the court, be granted if it shall appear to the satisfaction 
of the court both that there is reasonable ground to expect that the de- 
fendant may be reformed and that the interests of society will be 
subserved. If such application is granted, the judge granting the same 
shall thereupon enter an order continuing the cause for a period not' 
exceeding six months in cases of violation of municipal ordinances where 
the offense is also a violation, in whole or in part, of a statute and not 
exceeding one year in the case of other offenses enumerated in section 
two of this Act, and shall by such order, fix and specify the terms and 
conditions of the probation of such defendant as herein provided. A 
cause continued pursuant to the provisions of this Act shall be deemed 
subject to the jurisdiction of the court in which it is pending, or any 
judge thereof, for the full period of its continuance, during which time 
orders may be entered with respect to the conditions of probation, or 
final sentence imposed without the formal setting aside of such order 
of continuance. 

§ 4. Eelease on probation shall be upon the following conditions: 

(1) That the probationer shall not, during the term of his pro- 
bation, violate any criminal law of the State of Illinois, or any ordi- 
nance of any municipality of said State. 

(2) That if convicted of a felony or misdemeanor he shall not, 
during the term of his probation, leave the State without the consent 
of the court (granting his application for' probation). 

(3) That he shall make a monthly report of his whereabouts, con- 
duct and employment and furnish such other information relating to 
the conditions of his probation, as may from time to time be required 
by rule or order of court, to the probation officer under whose charge 
he has been placed, and shall appear in person before the court at such 
time as the court may direct or the rule of court provide. 

(4) That he shall enter into a bond or recognizance in such sum 
as the court may direct, with or without sureties, to perform the con 
ditions imposed, which shall run to the People of the State of Illinois 
and may be sued on by any person thereunto authorized by the court 
for the use of the parties in interest as the same may appear. 

And the court may impose any one or more of the following addi- 
tional conditions and no others: 

(1) That he shall make restitution, in whole or in part, imme- 
diately or within the period of probation to the person or persons in- 
jured or defrauded. 



COURTS. 279 



(2) That he shall make contribution from his earnings for the sup- 
port of those dependent upon him subject to the supervision of the 
court. 

(3) That he shall pay the costs of the proceeding, not exceeding 
one dollar per month during the continuance of the probation. 

§ 5. The court shall have discretionary power to remit such costs 
as may be imposed, or any portion thereof. 

§ 6. At any time during the period of probation, the court may, 
upon report by a probation officer or other satisfactory proof of the 
violation by the probationer of any of the conditions of his prohation, 
revoke and terminate the same and issue a warrant for the arrest of 
the probationer, which warrant shall run throughout the State, and 
may be served by any probation officer in the State, or by any officer 
authorized to serve criminal process in any city or county in the State. 
Upon the probationer being brought before the court for violation of 
his probation, the court may enter a rule upon the probationer to show 
cause why his prohation should not be terminated and judgment en- 
tered, and sentence imposed upon the original conviction and release 
upon bail shall be allowed as in other cases. 

If, upon the probationer being brought before the court, the court 
shall be -of the opinion that the interests of justice do not require the 
imposition of sentence, and that said probationer should be re-com- 
mitted to the care of the probation officer, the court may discharge the 
probationer from arrest, and may re-commit him to the care of the 
probation officer, subject, however, to the maximum limitation of the 
probation period as hereinbefore provided. 

But if the court shall be of the opinion that the interests of justice 
require the imposition of sentence the same shall then be imposed. 
And in computing the period for which he is to be confined, the time 
between his release upon probation and his return to custody shall not 
be taken to be any part of the term of his sentence. 

§ 7. Upon the termination of the probation period, the probation 
officer shall report the fact to the court and also the conduct of the 
probationer during the period of probation, and the court may there- 
upon discharge the probationer from further supervision or extend 
the probation period, as the circumstances require: Provided, the 
maximum period of probation herein limited shall not be exceeded. 

When a probationer is discharged upon the expiration of the pro- 
bation period, or upon its earlier termination by order of the court, 
entry of the discharge shall be made in the records of the court, and 
the probationer shall be entitled to a certified copy thereof. 

§ 8. Should any probationer found guilty of a misdemeanor or a 
felony depart from this State without the prior leave of the court that 
placed him on probation, such Act shall, of itself, operate as a termin- 
ation of his probation and the court shall thereupon enter judgment 
terminating such probation and he may thereupon be proceeded against 



280 COURTS. 



as a fugitive from justice. When re-arrested and brought before the 
court, the court entering such judgment shall have power to set the 
same aside and proceed in its discretion with respect to such proba- 
tioner as though such judgment had never been entered. 

§ 9. The circuit court of each of the several counties in this State 
may appoint a ]3robation officer to act as such for and throughout the 
county in which he shall be appointed. The circuit court of any county 
may appoint such number of additional probation officers for sucli 
county as the court may deem to be necessary or advisable : Provided, 
the number of probation officers to be appointed for any county shall 
in no event exceed one for every fifty thousand inhabitants of such 
count}', the school census preceding any appointment to be the basis 
for the determination of the number of inhabitants of such county: 
Provided, ftiHlier, that in no event shall the number of probation 
officers, in any one county, exceed twenty. Any circuit court, in any 
county in which there are five or more probation officers, may also, in 
its discretion, appoint a chief probation officer in addition to the num- 
her of probation officers herein provided for. Said probation officers 
shall be of good character, shall possess such other qualifications as 
may be provided by rules to be adopted by such courts respectively, 
and may by such rules each be required to give bond in a sum not ex- 
ceeding five thousand dollars ($5,000), conditioned for the faithful 
discharge of the duties of such probation officer, and otherwise as 
jjrovided by said rules such bond to be with such sureties as may be 
approved by the court. Said probation officers shall, unless sooner re- 
moved, serve as such for a period of one year from the date of their 
appointment and until their successors shall severally be appointed 
and qualified, shall be subject to the orders of the courts appointing 
them and removable in the discretion thereof by an order duly entered 
■of record. Said circuit court may adopt general rules not inconsistent 
with the provisions of this Act, and promotive of its letter and spirit, 
providing, among other things, for the qualifications of probation offi- 
cers, their duties, and such other matters as may seem expedient. In 
any city in this State having a population of fifty thousand or less in- 
habitants, as shown by the preceding school census, in which city there 
has been or may hereafter be established a municipal or city court, 
such municipal or city court may appoint one probation officer for 
such municipal or city court, in which case the number of probation 
officers to which any county is entitled as above provided, shall be re- 
duced by the number of municipal or city courts in said county estab- 
lished for cities having a population of fifty thousand or less inhabi- 
tants. Tlie remaining probation officers to which any county may be 
entitled as aforesaid shall be equally apportioned between the county 
and the several cities, if any therein that severally have a population 
ot more than fifty thousand inhabitants. Such probation officers so 
apportioned to such county shall be appointed by the circuit court of 
said coimty. and such probation officers so apportioned to such cities 



COURTS. 381. 



shall be appointed by the municipal or city courts in said several cities. 
The judges of the circuit court of any county and of the municipal or 
city courts therein established for cities having a population of more 
than fifty thousand inhabitants^ shall meet as a unit body at such 
times as they deem proper^ and at any such meeting may appoint a 
chief probation officer to act as such over all the probation officers ap- 
pointed by any of said courts. Said Judges may^ at any such meeting,, 
adopt general rules not inconsistent with the provisions of this Act, 
but promotive of its letter and spirit and transact such other business 
concerning the subject matter of this Act as to said judges may seem 
proper. Said judges may, at any such meeting appoint a committee of 
such number of them as they may determine to exercise the ministerial 
powers of said entire body of judges and the powers of appointment 
and removal of the chief probation officer, such committee to report 
to the entire body of judges at such time as may be required by rules 
or by specific order. 

§ 10. Any reputable private person who shall be of the age of 
twenty-five years or upwards, may be appointed a probation officer. 

Members of the police force of any city or village, if specially de- 
tailed by their commanding officer to the work, may be appointed pro- 
bation officers in said city or village, and in case any police officer is so 
appointed a probation officer he shall receive no additional compensa- 
tion because of such appointment. 

Before entering upon the duties of his office, each probation officer 
shall take and subscribe to an oath before the county clerk of his county 
to support the Constitution and laws of the United States and of the- 
State of Illinois, and faithfully to perform the duties of his office. 

§ 11. Probation officers, in the exercise of their official duties, and 
sheriffs, constables and police officers, may, anywhere within the State, 
arrest on view any probationer found by them violating any of the 
conditions of his probation, and it shall be the duty of the officer mak- 
ing such arrest immediately to take said probationer before the court 
having jurisdiction over him for further order. 

§ 12. The duties of probation officers shall be : 

1. To investigate, when required by rule of court or by specific 
order, the case of any person who has invoked the provisions of this 
Act, and as accurately and as fully as diligence will enable to ascertain 
(a) the personal characteristics, habits, associations and previous con- 
duct of such person, (b) the names, relationships, ages and conditions 
of those dependent upon him for support, maintenance and education, 
and (c) such other and further facts as may aid the court as well in. 
determining the propriety of probation as in fixing the conditions 
thereof. To the end that such investigation may be properly made, a 
probation officer commissioned to investigate shall be afforded full 
opportunity to confer with the person to be investigated when such 
person is in custody.

days, but may not discharge, and it shall be the duty of such chief pro- 
bation officer promptly to file charges against any probation officer so 
suspended by him, with the court or judges appointing such probation 
officer, and said court or judges shall thereupon investigate said charges 
and may hear evidence, and shall act thereon as the interests of justice 
and the good of the probation service may require. 

The records concerning probationers shall be kept in one office under

days' limit shall not be valid. A deposit shall not be paid by the Secre- 
tary of State to licensees as long as there are outstanding claims or no-

supply of water from Lake Michigan^ and shall be so situated that the 
construction and maintenance of a common plant for the purification 
and treatment of sewage, and the maintenance of a common outlet for 
the drainage thereof will conduce to the preservation of the public health,

this Act shall have power to provide for the disposal of the sewage there- 
of and to save and preserve the water supplied to the inhabitants of such 
district from contamination and for that purpose may construct and 
maintain an enclosed conduit or conduits, main pipe or pipes, wholly or

right so to do, or such board may provide for the drainage of such dis- 
trict by laying out, establishing, constructing and maintaining one or 
more channels, drains, ditches and outlets for carrying off and disposing 
of the drainage (including the sewage) of such district, together with 
such adjuncts and additions thereto as may be necessary or proper to 
cause such channels or outlets to accomplish the end for which they are

privilege, either within or without its corporate limits that may be 
required for its corporate purposes; and in case any district formed 
hereunder shall be unable to agree with any other sanitary district 
upon the terms under which it shall be permitted to use the drains,

authority to contract for the right to use any drain or channel which

district for the use and benefit of private property in said district which 
is not situated within the corporate limits of any such city, town or

An Act to promote the general welfare of the People of this State, 
hy providing compensation for accidental injunes or death suffered 
in the course of employment. 

Section 1. Be' it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, repre- 
sented in the General Assembly: That any employer covered by the 
provisions of this Act in this State may elect to provide and pay com- 
pensation for injuries sustained by any employe arising out of and in 
the course of the employment according to the provisions of 
this Act, and thereby relieve himself from any liability for the recovery 
of damages, except as herein provided. If, however, any such employer 
shall elect not to provide and pay the compensation to any employe who 
has elected to accept the provisions of this Act, according to the pro- 
visions of this Act he shall not escape liability for injuries sustained 
by such employe arising out of and in the course of his employment 
because 

1. The employe assumed the risks of the employer's business. 

2. The injury or death was caused in whole o:^ in part by the negli- 
gence of a fellow servant. 

3. The injury or death was proximately caused by the contributory 
negligence of the employe, but such contributory negligence shall be 
considered by the jury in reducing the amount of damages. 

a. Every such employer is presumed to have elected to provide and 
pay the compensation according to the provisions of this Act, unless and 
until notice in writing of his election to the contrary is filed with the 
State Bureau of Labor Statistics. 

h. Every employer within the provisions of this Act failing to file 
such notice shall be bound hereby as to all his employes who shall elect 
to come within the provisions of this Act until January 1st of the next 
succeeding year and for terms of each year thereafter: Provided, any 
such employer may elect to discontinue the payments of compensation 
herein provided only at the expiration of any such calendar year, by 
filing notice of his intention to discontinue such payments, with the 
State Bureau of Labor Statistics, at least sixty days prior to the expira- 
tion of any such calendar year, and by posting such notice in the plant, 
shop, office or place of work, or by personal service, in written or printed 
form, upon such employe, at least sixty days prior to the expiration of 
any such calendar year. 



316 EMPLOYMENT, 



c. In the event any employer elects to provide and pay compensation 
provided in this Act, then, every employe of such employer, as a part 
of his contract of hiring or who may be emploj^ed at the time of the 
taking effect of this Act and the acceptance of its provisions by the 
employer, shall be deemed to have accepted all the provisions of this 
Act and shall be bound thereby unless within thirty days after such 
hiring and after the taking effect of this Act, he shall file a notice to 
the contrary with the secretary of the State Bureau of Labor Statistics, 
whose duty it shall be to immediately notify the employer, and if so 
notified, the employer shall not be deprived of any of his common law 
or statutory defenses, and until such notice to the contrary is given to 
the employer, the measure of liability of the employer for any injury 
shall be determined according to the compensation provisions of this 
Act: Provided, however, that before any such employe shall be bound 
by the provisions of this Act, his employer shall either furnish to such 
employe personally at the time of his hiring, or post in a conspicuous 
jjlace at the plant or in the room or place where such employe is to be 
employed, a legible statement of the compensation provisions of this 
Act. 

§ 2. The provisions of this Act shall apply to every employer in 
the State engaged in the building, maintaining or demolishing of any 
structure; in any construction or electrical work; in the business of 
carriage by land or water and loading and unloading in connection there- 
with (except as to carriers who shall be construed to be excluded here- 
from by the laws of the United States relating to liabilty to their 
employes for personal injuries Avhile engaged in interstate commerce 
where such, laws are held to be exclusive of all State regulations pro- 
viding compensation for accidental injuries or death suffered in the 
course of employment) ; in operating general or terminal store-houses; 
in mining, surface mining, or quarrying; in any enterprise, or branch 
thereof, in which explosive materials are manufactured, handled or used 
in dangerous quantities; in any enterprise wherein molten metal or 
injurious gases or vapors or inflammable fluids are manufactured, used, 
generated, stored or conveyed in dangerous quantities; and in any enter- 
prise in which statutory regulations are now or shall hereafter be im- 
posed for the guarding, using or the placing of machinery or appliances, 
or for the protection and safe-guarding of the employes therein, each of 
vrhich employments is hereby determined to be especially dangerous, in 
which from the nature, conditions and means of prosecution of the work 
therein, extraordinary risks to life and limb of the employe engaged 
therein are inherent, necessary or substantially unavoidable, and as to 
each of which employments it is deemed necessary to establish a new 
system of compensation for accidents to the employes therein. 

§ 3. No common law or statutory right to recover damages for in- 
jury or death sustained by any employe while engaged in the line of his 
duty as such employe other than the compensation herein provided shall 
be available to any employe who has accepted the provisions of this Act 



EMPLOYMENT. 317 



or to any one wholly or partially dependent upon him or legally respon- 
sible for his estate : Provided^ that when the injury to the employe was 
caused by the intentional omission of the employer, to comply with 
statutory safety regulations, nothing in this Act shall affect the civil 
liability of the employer. If the employer is a partnership, such omis- 
sion must be that of one of the partners thereof, and if a corporation, 
that of any elective officer thereof. 

§ 4. The amount of compensation which the employer who accepts 
the provisions of this Act shall pay for injury to the employe which re- 
sults in death, shall be: 

a. If the employe leaves any widow, child or children, or parents or 
other lineal heirs to whose support he had contributed within five years 
previous to the time of his death, a sum equal to four times the average 
annual earnings of the employe, but not less in any event than one 
thousand five hundred dollars, and not more in any event than three 
thousand five hundred dollars. Any weekly payments, other than neces- 
sary medical or surgical ' fees, shall he deducted in ascertaining such 
amount payable on death. 

h. If the employe leaves collateral heirs dependent upon his earnings, 
such a percentage of the sum provided in section ''a" as the contribu- 
tions which deceased made to the support of these dependents, bore to 
his earnings. 

■ c. If the employe leaves no widow or child or children, parents or 
lineal or collateral heirs dependent upon his earnings, a sum not to 
exceed one hundred and fifty dollars for burial expenses. 

d. All compensation provided for in this section to be paid in case 
injury results in death, shall be paid in installments equal to one-half 
the average earnings, at the same intervals at which the wages or earn- 
ings of the emplo5^e were paid while he was living; or if this shall not 
be feasable, then the installments shall be paid weekly. 

e. The compensation to be paid for injuries Avhich result in death, 
as provided for in this section, shall be paid to the personal representa- 
tive of the deceased employe and shall be distributed by such personal 
representative to the beneficiaries entitled thereto, in accordance with 
the laws of this State relating to the descent and distribution of personal 
property. 

§ 5. The amount of compensation which the employer who accepts 
the provisions of this Act shall provide and pay for injury to the employe 
resulting in disability shall be : 

a. Necessary first aid, medical, surgical and hospital services, also 
medicine and hospital services for a period not longer than eight weeks, 
not to exceed, however, the amount of $200.00, also necessary services 
of a physician or surgeon during such period of disability, unless such 
emploj^e elects to secure his own physician or surgeon. 

h. If the period of disability lasts for more than six working days, 
and such fact is determined b}^ the physician or physicians, as provided 
in section 9, compensation equal to one-half of the earnings, but not 



318 . EMPLOYMENT. 



less than $5.00 nor more than $12.00 per week, beginning on the eighth 
day of disability, and as long as the disability lasts, or until the amount 
of compensation paid equals the amount payable as a death benefit. 

c. If any employe, by reason of any accident arising out of and in 
the course of his employment, receive any serious and permanent dis- 
figurement to the hands or face, but which injury does not actually inca- 
pacitate the employe from pursuing his usual or customary employment 
so that it is possible to measure compensation in accordance with the 
scale of compensation and the methods of computing the same herein 
provided, such employe shall have the right to resort to the arbitration 
provisions of this Act for the purpose of determining a reasonable 
amount of compensation to be paid to such employe, but not to exceed 
one-quarter (14) the amount of his compensation in case of death. 

d. If after the injury has been received it shall appear upon medical 
examination as provided for in section 9, that the employe has been par- 
tially, though permanently incapacitated from pursuing his usual and 
customary line of employment, he shall receive compensation equal to 
one-half of the difference between the average amount which he earned 
before the accident, and the average amount which he is .earning, or is 
able to earn in some suitable employment or business after the accident, 
if such employment is secured. 

e. In the case of complete disability which renders the employe 
wholly and permanently incapable of work, compensation for the first 
eight years after the day the injury was received, equal to 50 per cent of 
his earnings, but not less than $5.00 nor more than $12,00 per week. 
If complete disability continues after the payment of a sum equal to 
the amount of the death benefit or after the expiration of the eight 
years, then a compensation during life, equal to 8 per cent of the death 
benefit which would have been payable had the accident resulted in death. 
Such compensation shall not be less than $10.00 per month and shall be 
payable monthly. 

(1) In case death occurs before the total of the payments made 
equals the amount payable as a death benefit, as provided in section 4, 
article a, then in case the employe leaves any widow, child or children, 
or parents, or other lineal heirs, they shall be paid the difference between 
the compensation for death and the sum of such payment, but in no 
case shall this sum be less than $500.00. 

(2) In cases of complete disability, after compensation has been paid 
at the specified rate for a term of at least six months, the employe shall 
have the privilege of filing a petition in accordance with article d of 
section 4 of this Act, asking for a lump sum payment of the difference 
between the sum of the payments received and the compensation to which 
he was entitled when such permanent disabilitv has been definitely deter- 
mined. For the purpose of this section, blindness or the total irre- 
coverable loss of sight, the loss of both feet at or above the ankle, the 
loss of both hands at or above the wrist, the loss of one hand and one 
foot, an injury to the spine resulting in permanent paralysis of the legs 



EMPLOYMENT. 319 



or arms, and a fracture of the skull resulting in incurable imbecility or 
insanity;, shall be considered complete and permanent disability: Pro- 
vided, these specific cases of complete disability shall not, however, be 
construed as excluding other cases. 

(3) In fixing the amount of the disability payments, regard shall be 
had to any payments, allowance or benefit which the employe may have 
received from the employer during the period of his incapacity, except 
the expenses of necessary medical or surgical treatment. In no event, 
except in cases of complete disability as defined above, shall any weekly 
payment payable under the compensation plan in this section provided 
exceed $12.00 per week, or extend over a period of more than eight years 
from the date of the accident. In case an injured employe shall be 
incompetent at the time when any right or privilege accrues to him 
under the provisions of this Act, a conservator or guardian of the incom- 
petent, appointed pursuant to law, may on behalf of such incompetent, 
claim and exercise any such right or privilege with the same force and 
effect as if the employe himself had been competent and had claimed 
or exercised said right or privilege; and no limitations of time by this 
Act provided, shall run so long as said incompetent employe had no con- 
servator or guardian. 

§ 5%. Any person entitled to compensation under this Act, or any 
employer who shall be bound to pay compensation under this Act, who 
shall desire to have such compensation, or any part thereof, paid in a 
lump sum, may petition any court of competent jurisdiction of the 
county in which the employe resided or worked at the time of disability 
or death, asking that such compensation be so paid, and if upon proper 
notice to the interested parties, and a proper showing made before such 
court, it appears to the best interest of the parties that such compensation 
be so paid, the court shall order payment of a lump sum, and where 
necessary, upon proper application being made, a guardian, conservator 
or administrator, as the case may be, shall be appointed for any person 
under disability who may be entitled to any such compensation, and an 
employer bound by the terms of this Act, and liable to pay such com- 
pensation, may petition for such appointment where no such legal repre- 
sentatives have been appointed or acting for such party or parties so 
under disability. 

§ 6. The basis for computing the compensation provided for in sec- 
tions 4 and 5 of the Act shall be as follows: 

a. The compensation shall be computed on the basis of the annual 
earnings which the injured person received as salary, wages or earnings 
in the employment of the same employer during the year next preced- 
ing the injury. 

6. Employment by the same employer shall be taken to mean employ- 
ment by the same employer in the grade in which the employe was 
employed at the time of the accident, uninterrupted by absence from 
work due to illness or any other unavoidable cause. 

c. The annual earnings if not otherwise determinable shall be re- 
garded as 300 times the average daily earnings in such computation. 



320 EMPLOYMENT. 



d. If the injured person has not been engaged in the employment for 
a full year immediately preceding the accident, the compensation shall 
be computed according to the annual earnings which persons of the same 
class in the same or in neighboring employments of the same kind have 
earned during such period. And if this basis of computation is impos- 
sible, or should appear to be unreasonable, three hundred times the 
amount which the injured person earned on an average on those days 
when he was working during the year next preceding the accident, shall 
be used as a basis for the computation. 

e. In the case of injured employes who earn either no wage or less 
than three hundred times the usual daily wage or earnings of the adult 
day laborers in the same line of industry of that locality, the yearly 
wage shall be reckoned as three hundred times the average daily local 
■\^age. 

/"'. As to employes in employments in which it is the custom to oper- 
ate for a part of the Avhale number of working days in each year, such 
number shall be used instead of three hundred as a basis for computing 
the annual earnings, provided the minimum number of days which shall 
be used for the basis of the year's work shall be not less than two hun- 
dred. 

g. Earnings, for the purpose of this section, shall be based on the 
earnings for the number of hours commonly regarded as a day's work 
for that employment, and shall exclude overtime earnings. The earn- 
ings shall not include any sum which the employer has been accustomed 
to pay the employe to cover any special expense entailed on him by the 
nature of his employment. 

h. In computing the compensation to be paid to any employe who, 
before the accident for which he claims compensation, was disabled and 
drawing compensation under the terms of this Act, the compensation 
for each subsequent injury shall be apportioned according to the propor- 
tion of incapacity and disability caused by the respective injuries which 
he may have suffered. 

§ 7. The compensation herein provided shall be the measure of the 
responsibility which the employer has assumed for injuries or death that 
may occur to employes in his employment subject to the provisions of 
this Act, and it shall not be in any way reduced by contributions from 
employes. 

§ 8. If it is proved that the injury to the employe resulted from his 
deliberate intention to cause such injury, no compensation with respect 
to that injury shall be allowed. 

§ 9. Any employe entitled to receive disability payments shall Be 
required if requested by the employer to submit himself for examination 
at the expense of the employer to a duly qualified medical practitioner 
or surgeon selected by the employer, at a time and place reasonably con- 
venient for the employe, as soon as practicable after the injury, and also 
one week after the first examination, and thereafter at intervals not 
oftener than once every four weeks, which examinations shall be for the 
purpose of determining the nature, extent and probable duration of the 



EMPLOYMENT. 321 



injury received by the employe, and for the purpose of adjusting the 
compensation which may be due tlie employe from time to time for 
disability according to the provisions of sections 4 and 5 of this Act: 
Provided, hoivever, that such examination shall be made in the presence 
of a duly qualified medical practitioner or surgeon provided and paid 
for by the employe, if such employe so desires, and in the event of a 
disagreement between said medical practitioners or surgeons as to the 
nature, extent or probable duration of said injury or disability, they may 
agree upon a third medical practitioner or surgeon, and, failing to agree 
upon such third medical practitioner or surgeon, the judge of the county 
court of the county where the employe resided or was employed at the 
time of the injury, shall within six days after petition filed in such 
court for that purpose, select a third medical practitioner or surgeon and 
the majority report of such three physicians as to the nature, extent and 
probable duration of such injury or disability shall be used for the pur- 
pose of estimating the amount of compensation payable under this Act. 
If the employe refuses so to submit himself to examination or unneces- 
sarily obstructs the same, his right to compensation payments shall be 
temporarily suspended until such examination shall have taken place, 
and no compensation shall be payable under this Act during such period. 
§ 10. Any question of law or fact arising in regard to the application 
of this law in determining the compensation payable hereunder shall 
be determined either by agreement of the parties or by arbitration as 
herein provided. In case any such question arises which cannot be set- 
tled by agreement, the employe and the employer shall each select a dis- 
interested party and the judge of the county court, or other court of 
competent jurisdiction, of the county where the injured employe resided 
or worked at the time of the injury, shall appoint a third disinterested 
party, such persons to constitute a board of arbitrators for the purpose, 
of hearing and determining all such disputed questions of law or fact 
arising in regard to the application of this law in determining the com- 
pensation payable hereunder; and it shall be the duty of both employe 
and employer to submit to such board of arbitrators not later than ten 
days after the selection and appointment of such arbitrators all facts or 
evidence which may be in their possession or under their control, relating 
to the questions to be determined by said arbitrators; and said board 
of arbitrators shall hear all the evidence submitted by both parties and 
they shall have access to any books, papers or records of either the 
employer or the employe showing any facts which may be material to 
the questions before them, and they shall be empowered to visit the 
place or plant where the accident occurred, to direct the injured employe 
to be examined by a regular practicing physician or surgeon, and to do 
all other acts reasonably necessary for a proper investigation of all 
matters in dispute. A copy of the report of the arbitrators in each case 
shall be prepared and filed by them with the State Bureau of Labor 
Statistics, and shall be binding upon both the employer and employe 

—21 L 



322 EMPLOYMENT. 



except for fraud and mistake : Provided, that either party to such arbi- 
tration shall have the right to appeal from such report or award of the 
a,rbitrators to the circuit court or the court that appointed the third 
arbitrator of the county where the injury occurred by tiling a petition in 
such court within twenty days after the filing of the report of the arbi- 
trators, and upon filing a good and sufficient bond, in the discretion of 
the court, and upon such appeal the questions in dispute shall be heard 
de novo, and either party may have a jury upon filing a written demand 
therefor with his petition. 

§ 11. Any person entitled to payment under the compensation pro- 
visions of this Act from any employer shall have the same preferential 
claim therefor against the property of the employer as is now allowed 
by law for a claim by such person against such employer for unpaid 
wages or for personal services, such preference to prevail against wage 
claims of all other employes, not entitled to compensation for injuries, 
and the payments due under such compensation provisions shall not be 
subject to attachment, levy, execution, garnishment or satisfaction of 
debts, except to the same extent and in the same manner as wages or 
earnings for personal service are now subject to attachment, levy, exe- 
cution, garnishment or satisfaction of debts, under the laws of this 
State, and shall not be assignable. Any right to receive compensation 
hereunder shall be extinguished by the death of the person or persons 
entitled thereto, subject to the provisions of this Act relative to compen- 
sation for death received in the course of employment. No claim of 
any attorney at law for services in securing a recovery under this x\ct 
shall be an enforceable lien thereon unless the amount of the same be 
approved in writing by a judge of a court of record, which approval may 
be made in term time or vacation. 

§ 12. Any contract or agreement made by any employer or his agent 
or attorney with any employe or any other beneficiary of any claim under 
the provisions of this Act within seven days after the injury shall be 
presumed to be fraudulent. 

§ 13. No employe or beneficiary shall have power to waive any of 
the provisions of this Act in regard to the amount of compensation which 
may be payable to such employe or beneficiar\' hereunder. 

§ 14. No proceedings for compensation under this Act shall be 
maintained unless notice of the accident has been given to the employer 
as soon as practicable after the happening thereof, and during such dis- 
ability, and unless claim for compensation has been made within six 
months after the injury, except that in case of an accident resulting in 
temporary disability, notice of such accident must be given to the em- 
ployer within thirty days after said accident; or in case of the death 
of the employe or in the event of his incapacity, within six months after 
such death or incapacity, or in the event that payments have been made 
under the provisions of this Act, within six months after such payments 
have ceased. No want or defect or inaccuracy of such notice shall be a 
bar to the maintenance of proceedings by arbitration or otherwise by tlie 
employe, unless the employer proves that he is unduly prejudiced in 



EMPLOYMENT. 323 



such proceedings by such want, defect or inaccuracy. Notice of the acci- 
dent shall, in substance apprise the employer of the claim of compen- 
sation made and shall state the name and address of the employe in- 
jured, the approximate date and place of the accident, if known, and 
in simple language the cause thereof; which notice may be served per- 
sonally or by registered mail, addressed to the employer at his last 
known residence or place of business : Provided, that the failure on the 
part of any person entitled to such compensation to give such notice 
shall not relieve the employer from his liability for such compensation, 
when the facts and circumstances of such accident are known to such 
employer or his agent, supervising work in which such employe was 
engaged at the time of the injury. 

§ 15, This Act shall not aifect or disturb the continuance of any 
existing insurance, mutual aid, benefit, or relief association or depart- 
ment, whether maintained in whole or in part by the employer or 
whether maintained by the employes, the payment of benefits of such 
association or department being guaranteed by the employer or by some 
person, firm or corporation for him : Promded, the employer con- 
tributes to such association or department an amount sufficient to insure 
the employes or other beneficiary the full compensation herein provided, 
exclusive of the cost of the maintenance of such association or depart- 
ment without any expense to the employe. This Act shall not prevent 
the organization and maintaining under the insurance law of this State 
of any benefit or insurance company for the purpose of insuring against 
the compensation provided for in this Act, the expense of which is 
maintained by the employer. This Act shall not prevent the organi- 
zation or maintaining under the insurance laws of this State of any 
voluntary mutual aid, benefit or relief association, among employes for 
the payment of additional accident or sick benefits. 

No existing insurance, mutual aid, benefit or relief association or 
department shall, b}- reason of anything herein contained, be authorized 
to discontinue its operation without first discharging its obligations to 
any and all persons carr\dng insurance in the same or entitled to relief 
or benefits therein. 

Any contract of employment, relief benefit, or insurance or other 
device whereby the employe is required to pay any premium or premiums 
for insurance against the compensation provided for in this Act shall 
be null and void, and any employer withholding from the wages of any 
employe any amount for the purpose of paying any such premium shall 
be guilty of a misdemeanor and punishable by a fine of not less than 
ten dollars nor more than twenty-five dollars in each offense in the 
discretion of the court. 

§ 16. Any person who shall become entitled to compensation under 
the provisions of this Act, shall, in the event of his inability to recover 
such compensation from the emploj-er on account of his insolvency, be 
subrogated to all the rights of such employer against any insurance
