(House Bill No. 562. Approved June 29, 1915.) 

An Act entitled, "An Act to amend sections two (2) and eight (8) of 
an Act entitled, c An Act to revise the law in relation to the suppres- 
sion and prevention of the spread of contagious and infectious dis- 
eases among domestic animals'" approved June 11+, 1909, in force 
July 1, 1909. 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, 
represented in the General Assembly: That sections two (2) and eight 
(8) of an Act entitled, "An Act to revise the law in relation to the 
suppression and prevention of the spread of contagious and infectious 
diseases among domestic animals/ " be and the same is hereby amended 
to read as follows : 

§ 2. It shall be the duty of said Board of Live Stock Commis- 
sioners to cause to be investigated any and all cases, or alleged cases, 
coming to their knowledge, of communicable diseases among domestic 
animals, within this State, and to use all proper means to prevent the 
spread of such diseases, and to provide for the extirpation thereof; and 
in the event of reasonable ground for the belief that any such com- 
municable disease exists in this State, it shall be the duty of the person 
owing or having in charge any animal or animals infected with such 
disease, or any other person having knowledge or reason to suspect the 
existence of such disease, to immediately notify said Board of Live 
Stock Commissioners, or some member thereof, by communication to 
said board or member, of the existence of such disease, and thereupon 
it shall be the duty of said board, or some member thereof, or author- 
ized agent of the board, immediately to cause proper examination thereof 
to be made, and if such disease shall be found to be a dangerously con- 
tagious or dangerously infectious malady, said board, or any member 
thereof, or the State Veterinarian, or any Assistant State Veterinarian, 
shall order such diseased animals, and such as have been exposed to 
contagion, and the premises in or on which they are, or which may 
have been recently occupied by them, to be strictly quarantined; and 
they shall have power to order any premises and farms where the dis- 
ease exists, or has recently existed, as well as exposed premises and 
farms, to be put in quarantine so that no domestic animal which has 
been or is so diseased, or has been exposed to such communicable dis- 
ease, be removed from the premises so quarantined, nor allow any ani- 
mal susceptible to such disease to be brought therein or thereon, except 
under such rules and regulations as said Board of Live Stock Commis- 
sioners may prescribe, which quarantine, and every quarantine estab- 
lished under the provisions of this Act, shall remain in force and effect 
until removed by order of said, board; and said board shall prescribe 
such regulations as they may deem necessary to prevent any such dis- 



ANIMALS AND BIRDS. 



ease from being communicated from any such diseased animal or 
exposed animal or from the infected premises or through any other 
means of communication. In all such cases the said Board of Live 
Stock Commissioners, or in case the number of animals shall not exceed 
five, any member thereof, shall have power to order the slaughter of 
any or all of such diseased or exposed animals. The said board shall 
also have power to cause to be destroyed all barns, stables, premises, 
fixtures, furniture and personal property infected with any such com- 
municable disease so far as in their judgment may be necessary to 
prevent the spread of such disease and where the same cannot be prop- 
erly disinfected; and to order the disinfection of all cars, boats or 
other vehicles used in transporting animals affected with any such 
communicable disease, or that have been exposed to the contagion 
thereof, and the disinfection of all yards, pens and chutes that may 
have been used in handling such diseased or exposed animals. 

When the said board, upon the written report of the State Veter- 
inarian, or any of his assistants, determines that any animal is affected 
with, or has been exposed to, any dangerously contagious or infectious 
disease, the board or any member thereof or any of its duly authorized 
agents, may agree with the owner upon the value of such animal or of any 
property that it may be found necessary to destroy, and in case such 
an agreement cannot be made, said animals or property shall be ap- 
praised by three competent and disinterested appraisers, one to be 
selected by the State Board of Live Stock Commissioners, one by the 
claimant and one by the two appraisers thus selected. Such appraisers 
shall subscribe to an oath in writing to fairly value such animals or 
property in accordance with the requirements of this Act, which oath, 
together with the valuation fixed by such appraisers, shall be filed with 
the board and be preserved by them. 

Upon such appraisement being made, it shall become the duty 
of the owner to immediately destroy such animals and to dispose of 
the carcasses thereof, and to disinfect the premises occupied by such 
animals, in accordance with the rules prescribed by said board govern- 
ing such destruction and disinfection. And upon his failure so to do, 
said board, or any member thereof, shall cause such animal or animals 
or property to be destroyed and disposed of, and thereupon such owner 
shall forfeit all right to receive any compensation for the destruction 
of such animal or animals or property. When the board, upon the 
written opinion of the State Veterinarian, or of any Assistant State 
Veterinarian, determines that any barns, stables, outbuildings or prem- 
ises are so infected that the same cannot be disinfected, they may 
quarantine such barns, stables, outbuildings or premises from use for 
the animals that might be infected by such use, and such quarantine 
shall continue in force and effect until removed by the board, and a 
violation of such quarantine shall be punished in the same manner as 
is provided for violation of other quarantine by this Act. Any person 
feeling himself aggrieved by any quarantine established under the pro- 
visions of this Act may appeal to the full Board of Live Stock Commis- 
sioners, who shall thereupon sustain, modify or annul such quarantine, 
as they may deem proper. 



ANIMALS AND BIRDS. 



Whenever quarantine is established in accordance with the pro- 
visions of this Act; valid notice of the same may be given by leaving 
with the owner or occupant of any premises so quarantined, in person, 
or by delivering to any member of his family, or any employee, over 
the age of ten years found upon the premises so quarantined, notice 
thereof, written or printed, or partly written and partly printed, and 
at the same time explaining the contents thereof. Such quarantine 
shall be sufficiently proven in any court by the production of a true copy 
of such notice of quarantine with a return thereon of the service of the 
same in the manner above required, attested by the seal of the Board of 
Live Stock Commissioners, with the signature of the proper officer 
thereof. 

§ 8. All claims against the State arising from the slaughter of 
animals as herein provided for, shall be made to the Board of Live 
Stock Commissioners under such rules, not inconsistent with this Act, 
as they may prescribe and it shall be the duty of said board to deter- 
mine the amount which shall be paid in each case on account of the 
animals so slaughtered and fix the fair cash value thereof in health if 
of the bovine species, for beef, dairy and breeding purposes, in no event 
to exceed three hundred dollars ($300) for any registered animal and 
not to exceed one hundred fifty dollars ($150) for any animal not 
registered; nor to exceed an average value of two hundred fifty dollars 
($250) per head for all registered animals in any herd and not to 
exceed an average value of one hundred and twenty-five ($125) dollars 
per head for all non-registered animals in any herd, or if of the equine 
species, their fair cash market value in health, in no event to exceed 
two hundred fifty ($250) dollars for any one animal, nor to exceed an 
average value of two hundred (200) dollars per head for all such 
animals of any herd, or if sheep or swine, their fair cash market value 
in health for meat or breeding purposes, in no event to exceed fifty 
($50) dollars for any one animal, nor to exceed an average value of 
forty ($40) dollars per head for all such animals of any flock or herd, 
upon such inspection, hearing and inquiry as to the value of said ani- 
mals as the said appraisers shall deem necessary for that purpose : 
Provided, however, that no value other than the market utility value 
of any animal shall be allowed or fixed unless a certificate of registra- 
tion issued by the registry association, of the breed of such animal, 
recognized by the United States Government, is furnished to the 
appraisers, and said appraisers shall report under oath the value of 
said animals, together With a statement of the evidence or facts upon 
which said appraisement is based, and said board shall certify the same 
to the Governor for his approval, and if the Governor shall find that 
said appraisers have proceeded in accordance with law, he shall approve 
the same for payment, and the Auditor of Public Acounts shall, upon 
presentation of the same to him, thereupon issue his warrant upon the 
State Treasurer for the amount fixed by said appraisers in favor of the 
owner of the animals : Provided, that where Federal authority author- 
izes the payment of part of the value of such animals the State shall 
only pay the balance of said appraisement fixed as aforesaid.

authorizing the making of contracts or the expenditure or appropria- 
tion of moneys. 

The said commission before entering into any contract for the 
construction of any part of said waterway or canal, or any other of 
the said public works connected therewith, shall cause to be made 
plans and specifications for said public works, together with reliable 
and carefully prepared detailed estimates of the cost of constructing, 
completing and installing all of said public works. No change of plan 
which shall materially increase the expense of any such work or create 
any claim against the State for damage arising therefrom shall be 
made unless a written statement, setting forth the object of the change 
and the expense thereof, is submitted to the commission and its assent 
thereto be obtained at a meeting when at least four members of the 
commission are present. The commissioners may at any time suspend 
any contract while the work is in progress if in their judgment the

complete the same in such manner as will be to the best advantage of 
the State, and the cost of completing the said contract shall be paid by 
the bondsman for contractor or by the contractor failing to perform 
the work. 

§ 6. "A." The route adopted for said waterway or canal shall be 
through and along the Sanitary District channel or tail race from the 
water power plant at Lockport, where the existing lock twenty-two 
(22) feet in width and one hundred thirty (130) feet in length, be- 
tween the upper and lower gates, shall be reconstructed to a width of 
not less than fifty-five (55) feet, and in length between the upper and 
lower gates, not less than three hundred (300) feet, or an additional 
lock alongside of the existing lock shall be constructed not less than 
fifty-five (55) feet wide, and not less than three hundred (300) feet 
long. The existing drop under normal conditions of flow shall be 
maintained; such lock to connect said Illinois Waterway with the main 
channel of the Sanitary District of Chicago.

cago's power plant from the aforesaid lock to its junction with the 
upper basin at Joliet, a. distance of about two (2) miles, shall be used 
substantially as it now exists. 

"C" From the junction of the aforesaid tail race to the State dam 
at Jackson Street, Joliet, the basin shall be improved by the removal of 
existing sediment and obstructions so that a channel of not less than 
eight (8) feet in depth and two hundred (200) feet in width shall be 
obtained. 

"(7-1" Provided, if the Sanitary District of Chicago at any time 
develops water power in the Desplaines Eiver below Joliet and destroys 
thereby all or any part of the water power at said Jackson Street dam, 



22 APPROPRIATIONS. 



said district shall restore to the State at said point in electrical energy 
ten thousand horse power now existing at said dam, or as much thereof 
as shall be destroyed, and the State shall have the rental therefrom. 

"D" The existing lock at the lower end of said upper basin and 
at the entrance to the Illinois and Michigan Canal shall be rebuilt or a 
new lock constructed to a width of not less than forty-five (45) feet, 
and in length, of not less than two hundred fifty (250) feet. The lift 
shall remain substantially as at present. This lock shall be designated 
as Lock "A." 

"E" From Lock "A" to Lock "B," which last mentioned lock is 
to be constructed immediately north of DuPage Eiver, the channel 
shall follow and occupy the present Illinois and Michigan Canal, and 
said canal shall be enlarged so as to obtain a minimum depth of eight 
(8) feet, and a minimum width of thirty-six (36) feet on the bottom 
and minimum width of sixty (60) feet at the water line. 

"F" The said Lock "B" shall have a width of not less than forty- 
five (45) feet and a length of not less than two hundred fifty (250) 
feet, and a lift of about twelve (12) feet. 

"G» From Lock "B" to Lock "C" (which said Lock "C" is herein- 
after provided for) a distance of about fifteen hundred (1500) feet, 
the channel of the Illinois and Michigan Canal is to be followed and 
utilized. This section of the channel is to be deepened so as to have a 
depth of not less than eight (8) feet and a bottom width of not less 
than thirty-six (36) feet and a water surface width of not less than sixty 
(60) feet. This is the section of the channel crossing the DuPage Eiver. 

"H" Lock "C" shall be constructed at or near the present Lock 
Number Seven (7) of the Illinois and Michigan Canal and shall have 
a width of not less than forty-five (45) feet and a length of not less than 
two hundred fifty (250) feet, and a lift of about four and one-half 
(4%) feet. 

"I" From Lock "Q" to Lock "D" (which said Lock "D" is herein- 
after provided for), a distance of about six (6) miles, the channel shall 
follow and utilize the channel of said canal, deepened to not less than 
eight (8) feet. The width of the surface of the water shall be maintained 
at not less than sixty (60) feet and the width upon the bottom shall be 
not less than thirty-six (36) feet. 

"J" At or near a point opposite the upper end of Dresden Island, 
Lock "D" shall be built connecting the Illinois and Michigan Canal with 
Illinois Eiver and shall be of the following dimensions: Width of not 
less than forty-five (45) feet, length not less than two hundred fifty 
(250) feet. 

Provided, however, that if the alleged rights now claimed by the 
Economy Light & Power Company to a dam and water power in the 
Desplaines Eiver near its junction with the Kankakee Eiver shall be 
finally declared invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction or shall 
in any manner be terminated or in any manner acquired by the State so 
as to permit the use for such waterway of the Desplaines Eiver between 
Brandon Eoad and Dresden Heights, then, and in that case, the commis- 
sion shall, with the written approval of the Governor, change the route 
of the waterway from a point at or near Brandon Eoad in the Illinois 
and Michigan Canal, where a lock not less than forty-five (45) feet wide

and not less than two hundred fifty (250) feet in length shall be con- 
structed, thence a channel constructed not less than thirty-six (36) feet 
wide on bottom and not less than sixty (60) feet wide at water surface, 
to a point in the Desplaines Eiver at or near Brandon Eoad and thence 
in the Desplaines Eiver to Dresden Heights where the channel shall not 
be less than eight (8) feet in depth and one hundred fifty (150) feet in 
width. At or near Dresden Heights a lock and dam shall be constructed 
of suitable size, that shall conform in dimensions with other locks as 
provided in the Illinois Eiver as hereinafter mentioned and water power 
developed as the property of the State of Illinois. 

No work shall be done toward reconstructing Illinois and Michigan 
Canal between a point at or about Brandon Eoad and Dresden Heights 
prior to April first (1st) nineteen hundred and sixteen (1916) ; unless, 
before that time, the alleged rights now claimed by the Economy Light 
& Power Company to a dam and water power in the Desplaines Eiver 
near the junction with the Kankakee Eiver shall be finally declared valid 
by the Supreme Court of the United States. 

The commission is authorized to collect data — make surveys, maps, 
etc., for the purpose of estimating and reporting to the Governor and 
the next General Assembly the cost of developing that part of the Des- 
plaines Eiver between Joliet and Brandon Eoad, and also the cost of 
developing power at Brandon Eoad and probable income from such 
power developed, with a view at an early date of incorporating the chan- 
nel of the Desplaines Eiver between the Sanitary District power house 
at or near Lockport, 111., and Brandon Eoad into the Illinois Water- 
way, and for the purpose of conserving, preserving and developing for 
the State the water power that can be developed at or near Brandon Eoad 
in the Desplaines Eiver, which would accrue to and be the property of 
the State. 

"£" From a point at or near Dresden Island, hereinbefore des- 
cribed, the waterway shall follow the channel of the Illinois Eiver for a 
distance of about twenty-four (24) miles, to a point in the Illinois Eiver 
at or about the west end of Ballards Island, thence on an angle to a point 
on south bank about one thousand (1,000) feet east of the south end of 
dam at Marseilles, Illinois. This channel shall be dredged where neces- 
sary so as to secure a minimum depth of eight (8) feet and a width of 
not less than one hundred fifty (150) feet. 

"L" From this point in the south bank of the river there shall be 
constructed a channel for purposes of navigation only, which shall afford 
a waterway not less than 8 feet in depth and a width of substantially 100 
feet, with practically vertical walls, the center line of said channel ex- 
tending for a distance of about 600 feet in a southwesterly direction to a 
point not less than 500 feet south of the top of the south bank of said 
river, and thence in a westerly direction, substantially parallel to the 
Illinois Eiver, to a point at the south bank of the Illinois Eiver near or 
opposite Bell's Island, but the northerly boundary line of the right of 
way for said channel through section twenty-four (24), township thirty- 
three (33) north, range four (4) east of the third (3rd) principal meri- 
dian shall no where be farther north of the center line of said channel 
than 100 feet nor shall it anywhere approach the top of the south bank 
of the Illinois Eiver nearer than four hundred and. fifty feet, No

material excavated from said channel in the first or most easterly 2,000 
feet thereof, or so much of same as is situated in said section twenty -four 
(24), shall be placed or deposited on the northerly side of said channel. 

Except as is hereinabove otherwise provided, the center line of said 
channel shall be as nearly as practicable the center line of the proposed 
waterway, as recommended by the United States engineers in their report 
and survey of the Illinois River during the year 1902 and 1904, as appears 
from Sheet No. 52 of said report and survey of the Illinois River now on 
file in the War Department at the United States Government. 

That portion of the channel above described as the first 600 feet 
thereof, or any other part thereof as may be necessary for the require- 
ments of navigation, may in the discretion of the commission be widened 
to a width of approximately 150 feet. A suitable guard lock or other 
safety device shall be installed in said channel. At the westerly or lower 
end of said channel, at or near its place of junction with the Illinois 
River, a lock shall be constructed of not less than 55 feet in width and 
of not less than 300 feet in length, and of a sufficient depth to maintain 
not less than 8 feet of water for navigation purposes between upper and 
lower levels. Said lock to be known as Lock "E." But nothing in this 
Act contained, nor anything the said commission may do thereunder, 
shall ever have the effect of, or be construed as creating, recognizing, 
establishing or enlarging any right, title, interest or claim of any person 
or corporation whatsoever in and to the said Marseilles Dam or any 
interest therein, or the right to maintain the same, in or to any water 
power thereby developed ; nor as waiving, restricting, or limiting any right 
or power of the State of Illinois with respect to said dam or water power, 
or at any time hereafter preventing or interfering with the State of Illi- 
nois in the exercise of any right, power or option it may lawfully have in 
respect to or concerning the said dam or water power. 

"M" Thence the channel of said waterway shall continue in the 
Illinois River at a depth not less than eight (8) feet and a width of 
channel of not less than one hundred fifty (150) feet, for a distance of 
about sixteen (16) miles below Marseilles Dam to a point just above 
Starved Rock, where a dam and lock shall be constructed ; said lock to be 
designated and known as Lock "P." 

"N" At the aforesaid point (described in paragraph "M") above 
Starved Rock in the Illinois River, there shall be constructed a perma- 
nent and substantial dam of concrete of the most modern design and 
type, at least equal to or better than the design and type of the dam 
across the Mississippi River at or near the city of Keokuk, Iowa, sufficient 
to control the water in the pool created by said dam to an elevation of 
one and one-half (l 1 /^) feet above previous maximum high water at the 
highway bridge across the Illinois River at Ottawa. The elevation of the 
crest of this dam shall not exceed minus one hundred and twenty-one 
(121) Chicago city datum, and the water in the pool above said dam at 
the highway bridge at Ottawa shall be so controlled during all except 
flood stages of water that the elevation of the water at said highway 
bridge shall not exceed an elevation of minus one hundred and twenty-one 
(121) Chicago city datum. Whenever the stage of water at the highway 
bridge in the city of Ottawa shall exceed minus one hundred twenty-one 
(121) Chicago city datum, the sluice gates shall be immediately opened 



APPROPRIATIONS. 25 



and the stage of water shall be maintained at minus one hundred twenty- 
one (121) Chicago city datum, as nearly as possible, and the said gates 
shall remain open, if necessary, to their full capacity to maintain said 
water at said stage, and if the excess water, with the sluice gates all open, 
shall still raise the stage of water above minus, one hundred twenty-one 
(121) Chicago city datum, said sluice gates shall be kept open until the 
staffe of water at said highway bridge shall again reach minus one hun- 
dred twenty-one (121) Chicago city datum. 

The sluice gates in said dam shall be of capacity at least 30 per cent 
larger than any flood water flow of record, and shall be so controlled, 
operated and manipulated that the stage of water at the highway bridge 
at Ottaawa shall at no time exceed one and one-half (1%) feet above the 
high water heretofore existing at said highway bridge across the Illinois 
Eiver at Ottawa, Illinois. A lock designated as Lock "F" shall be con- 
structed in connection with this dam ; said lock shall have a width of not 
less than fifty-five (55) feet and a length of not less than three hundred 
(300) feet. Provision shall also be made at this site for enlarging this 
lock to a width of not less than eighty (80) feet and a length of not 
less than six hundred (600) feet, or an additional lock may be construc- 
ted not less than eighty (80) feet wide, and not less than six hundred 
(600) feet in length. 

"O." In the construction of said dam at Starved Eock provision 
shall be made for the development of water power which may be created 
at this site. This power, as well as other water power created by water 
passing through said waterway or canal shall be utilized by the State and 
may be leased and the income therefrom shall be applied to the payment 
of the interest and principal on bonds issued for the construction of the 
work named herein. 

"P." The channel of the Illinois Eiver below the aforesaid dam 
shall be improved so as to secure a depth of not less than eight (8) feet 
of water, and a width of not less than one hundred fifty (150) feet, to a 
point at or near Utica. 

"Q." The said Illinois Waterway shall be constructed so as to afford 
for navigation a channel of a depth of approximately, but not less than 
eight (8) feet throughout its course at all times. Additional depth of 
the channel as commerce may require, may be hereafter provided for 
through appropriate legislation, by and with the co-operation of the State 
and the Federal Government, when a sufficient depth of channel in the 
lower Illinois Eiver and the Mississippi Eiver shall have been attained 
or provided for by the Federal Government to warrant the deepening of 
the channel of the aforesaid Illinois Waterway ; it being deemed and 
hereby declared that the said Illinois Waterway is practical for a general 
plan and scheme of deep waterway along the route hereinbefore men- 
tioned, and is deemed most advantageous for such plan of deep water- 
way. 

§ 7- Wherever, in the construction, maintenance, use and operation 
of any dam, controlling works, embankment, wall, crib or other improve- 
ment or structure, any existing drainage or sewer system constructed and 
maintained by any city, village or incorporated town is destroyed or 
materially interfered with, then it shall be the duty of the Illinois Water- 
way Commission to alter, rebuild or reconstruct or otherwise provide for 



26 APPROPRIATIONS. 



so much and such parts of such drainage and sewer systems as to restore 
the same to as good efficiency as before the passage of this Act. In 
the altering, rebuilding and reconstructing of such drainage and sewer 
systems, streets, avenues, alleys and private property shall be replaced 
and restored to as good a condition as they were before said work was 
commenced. The work of altering, rebuilding and reconstructing or 
otherwise providing for such drainage and sewer systems shall be done 
by the commission under the general supervision of the city council or 
board of trustees of the city, village or incorporated town affected, and 
to its reasonable satisfaction, the whole cost thereof to be paid by the 
Illinois Waterway Commission, and the work to be done and completed 
prior to the completion of any dam or other work or structure causing 
such drainage or sewer system to be changed or interfered with. 

Modern bridges of adequate size and of suitable design, including 
all necessary piers, abutments, sub-structures, superstructures and ap- 
proaches, shall be constructed across the full width of the channel to 
replace present structures owned by municipalities, townships and 
counties, wherever changes or rebuilding in said existing bridges shall, 
in the opinion of the said Illinois Waterway Commission, become 
necessary, the original cost of the same to be borne by the Illinois 
Waterway Commission. One-half (y 2 ) of the cost of maintaining 
these bridges shall be borne by the municipality, township or county, 
and one-half (y 2 ) of such cost shall be borne by the State. 

The work of building, constructing and paving approaches, re- 
taining walls, and sidewalks, and other work made necessary by the 
raising and lengthening of bridge spans as .aforesaid, shall be done by 
the Illinois Waterway Commission, under the supervision of city coun- 
cils of cities, boards of trustees of villages, or the highway commis- 
sioners or other authorities having supervision of roads and bridges in 
the municipalities affected, and shall be paid for by the Illinois Water- 
way Commision. 

At the city of Ottawa dykes shall be built along the east side of 
the Fox Biver and along the north side of the Illinois Eiver commenc- 
ing at or near a point at the center line of Shabbona Street produced 
to the Fox Eiver and extending along the banks of the Fox Eiver and 
Illinois Eiver to a point at or near the intersection of Chester and 
Canal Streets, and the lowlands back of said dykes shall be filled with 
sand, earth or other material to an elevation of not less than minus one 
hundred and seventeen (117) Chicago city datum, all at the cost and 
expense of the Illinois Waterway Commission. In filling that part of 
said lowlands lying back of said dykes and lying south of Main Street 
and west of Division Street, the Illinois Waterway Commission shall 
fill the same to a depth of 18 inches from the top surface of said fill 
with good soil suitable for the raising of a good grass sod thereon. 
It shall also be the duty of the Illinois Waterway Commission to dyke 
and fill with sand, earth or other material the ravine in said city of 
Ottawa commonly known as the "West Side Ravine," from its junction 
with the Illinois Eiver to a point at or near Ottawa Avenue, the eleva- 
tion at the top of said dyke and fill to be minus one hundred and ten 
(110) Chicago city datum, all at the expense of the Illinois Waterway 
Commission.

informing the person in charge of said office of the nature thereof; and 
in case judgment is rendered against the defendant in such action the 
said judgment shall be held, deemed and considered as a binding and 
conclusive judgment against the State of Illinois, in all respects and 
for all purposes; and the same shall be promptly paid in like manner 
and out of the same funds as other payments are made for the expense

error as in other cases. 

And in case judgment shall be rendered against, the defendant for 
damages as aforesaid, the plaintiff shall also recover his reasonable 
attorney's fees to be taxed as costs of such suit: Provided, however,

that the plaintiff had duly notified the commission in writing, at least 
sixty (60) days before such suit was commenced, by leaving a copy 
of such notice with some one of such commissioners, stating in such 
notice that the plaintiff claims damages to the amount fixed in such 
notice by reason of the causes which shall in such notice be stated, and 
that he intends to bring suit for the same: And, provided, further, 
that in case it shall appear that the said commission did prior to the 
beginning of such suit, offer the plaintiff in settlement of such dam- 
ages, an amount which shall be as large or larger than the amount of 
damages recovered by the plaintiff in such suit, no such attorney's fees 
shall be recovered. This section shall extend to and apply to any 
corporation, municipal or otherwise, which shall be a plaintiff in any 
such action, as well as to natural persons.

and all labor so employed shall be under the direction of the chief 
engineer and his properly authorized assistants : And, provided, further,

general welfare of the people of this State by providing compensation 
for accidental injuries, or death, suffered in the course of employment 
within this State, providing for the enforcement and administering 
thereof, and a penalty for its violation, and repealing an Act entitled, 
"An Act to promote the general welfare of the people of this State by 
providing compensation for accidental injuries or death suffered in the 
course of employment." 

The commission shall further require all contractors and sub-

the facts upon which the said vouchers are based, audited by the secre- 
tary and approved by the chairman of the commission and the Governor.

Auditor of Public Accounts is authorized in the first instance to issue 
his warrant for the sum of fifty thousand (50,000) dollars at the direc- 
tion of the said commission, and payable to its treasurer; and the 
Auditor of Public Accounts is authorized thereafter, upon approval of 
the Governor, to issue warrants for the purpose of maintaining said 
fund at the sum of fifty thousand (50,000) dollars, but shall only issue 
said warrants upon the presentation to him of receipted bills of par- 
ticulars and vouchers, certified by the official or agent of said commission 
having knowledge of the facts upon which the vouchers are based, 
audited by the secretary, and approved by the chairman of the commis- 
sion and the Governor, showing the disbursements made by said com-

property in this State subject to taxation, as provided by law. The 
tax imposed as herein provided shall be assessed, levied and collected in 
the manner prescribed by law and shall be paid by the several county 
treasurers into the treasury of the State. The proceeds of such tax 
shall be invested by the State Treasurer in securities in which he is 
authorized by law to invest the trust and sinking funds of the State 
and together with the interest arising therefrom, any premium received 
on the sale of said bonds and interest accruing on deposits of money 
received from the sale of said bonds and from miscellaneous sources 
shall constitute a sinking fund known as the Waterway Sinking Fund. 
Said fund shall be used solely for the purpose of paying the principal 
and interest of bonds issued in accordance with the provisions of this 
Act; and to the application of which sinking fund to the payment of 
said bonds and interest, and to the payment in full of which said bonds 
and the interest, the faith of the State of Illinois is hereby pledged.

notice of the intending letting shall be given by publication in a daily 
newspaper published in the city of Springfield and also at least one in 
the city of Chicago, and three others elsewhere in Illinois, and such 
other notice as the commission shall deem best. The said commission 
shall require the bids to be accompanied by security, and may reject 
all bids not satisfactory to them and readvertise until they receive satis- 
factory bids; whereupon they shall lease said power to the highest 
responsible bidder. No lease shall be for a period exceeding ten (10) 
years, but the said commission may provide for not more than one (1) 
extension of any lease for a further period of ten (10) years at a rent 
to be fixed by appraisal to be made by three (3) disinterested appraisers, 
to be selected or appointed in such manner as shall be provided in the 
lease. Said commission shall also have power to lease from time to time 
any of the lands or lots acquired by said commission, upon the same 
terms and subject to the same limitations as are hereinbefore provided 
in regard to water power : Provided, that after such lease or leases

of toll for the use of said waterway, and all tolls, rents and other 
moneys received by the said commission, from the operation of the 
aforesaid public works, shall be deposited in the State treasury as a part 
of the aforesaid waterway sinking fund, which shall be kept and used 
to meet the interest and principal falling due upon said bonds, and to 
be used by said commission in its discretion, in buying up for cancella- 
tion any of said bonds before maturity at not more than the par value 
thereof, together with accrued interest thereon. The method of dis- 
bursing the said waterway sinking fund shall be the same as is herein- 
before provided for the disbursement of the proceeds of the said bonds: 
Provided, the use of said canal or waterway and locks shall be free for 
transportation of any propeTty of the United States or persons in their 
service passing through the same. 

§ 18. When the said waterway shall have been completed in con- 
formity with the provisions of this Act, and paid for with the proceeds 
of bonds authorized to be sold under the provisions of section twelve 
(12) hereof, and said bonds shall have been paid either out of the 
earnings of said waterway or by the State, or both, then the said 
channel, or so much thereof as shall have been completed, shall be 
tendered to the Government of the United States for navigation uses, 
conditioned upon the obligation or agreement of said Government to 
maintain the channel as a waterway free from tolls for navigation and 
to operate and maintain the locks free of cost to the State of Illinois. 
For all uses other than navigation the channel and its appurtenances 
shall be, and forever remain, the property of the State of Illinois. 

§ 19. This Act shall not be construed to interfere with the prero- 
gatives and duties of the Eivers and Lakes Commission, otherwise than 
as herein provided.

ducted, save only and except so much as may be necessary in the 
construction proposed under this Act, and then only when absolutely 
necessary, until the said Illinois Waterway shall be completed, as pro- 
vided by this Act. And, pursuant to the above, the present commis- 
sioners of the Illinois and Michigan Canal, and other officers and 
appointees thereof, or their successors in office, shall continue in office 
as said commissioners of said Illinois and Michigan Canal, clothed with

(Senate Bill No. 420. Approved Mat 28, 1915.) 

An Act to provide for the return of a flag of the Eighteenth Confeder- 
ate Regiment of Tennessee, together with the field and staff of said 
regiment, and appropriating two hundred ($200) dollars to defray the 
expense thereof. 

Whereas, a petition signed by citizens and representatives of the 
city of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and vicinity, was on the 31st day of 
March, 1915, presented to the State Senate of Illinois as follows: 

We, the undersigned petitioners, would respectfully state to your 
Honorable Body, that we are representative citizens of the city of Mur- 
freesboro, Tenn., and vicinity and in part, surviving members of the 
Eighteenth Tennessee Eegiment Confederates, which regiment was 
organized and enlisted for the confederate army at said city of Mur- 
freesboro in the year 1861. 

That at the time of the organization of said regiment, a flag was 
presented to it by the ladies and citizens of Murfreesboro, the presenta- 
tion address being delivered by a young lady of Murfreesboro, who 
afterwards became one of the most distinguished women of the South. 

That thereafter, at the battle of Fort Donaldson, said flag was 
captured by Illinois troops and the same is now in the possession of the 
State of Illinois in the Hall of Eelics at Springfield. 

Your petitioners are informed that at one time the Legislature of 
Illinois, by resolution or otherwise, ordered the release and return of 
said flag, to its original holders, but that the purpose of said resolution 
was not carried out. 

Your petitioners, their neighbors and comrades, earnestly desire the 
return of said flag, and represent that the same would be of great histor- 
ical value to them and their descendants, and also to the State of 
Tennessee. 

Therefore, realizing that the prejudices and animosities resulting 
in the late Civil War have become things of the past, and trusting in the 
magnanimity and liberality of your Honorable Body, also that of the 
people of the great State of Illinois, we ask that said flag be released 
and returned to be placed with our State Historical Society, or in the 
archives of the State of Tennessee. 

We would further represent that we think Mr. L. M. Armstrong, 
of Peoria, 111., formerly a citizen of Tennessee, who was closely related 
to donors of said flag and to prominent members of said regiment, would 
be a suitable person to receive and convey said flag, and we would most 
respectively [respectfully] ask that in the event of your Honorable 
Body ordering the release and return of said flag, Mr. Armstrong be 
deputized to receive the same and to bear it to us, or to the State of

To the Honorable, the House of Representatives of the General Assembly of Illinois: 

I return herewith House Bill No. 931, it being "An Act making an appropriation for the payment of 
the officers and members of the next General Assembly, and for the salaries of certain officers and employ- 
ees of the State Government." 

In section 1, item: "Three million, eight hundred and seventy-three thousand, thirty-six dollars 
($3,873,036.00). " I approve in the sum of three million, five hundred and forty-one thousand, thirty-six 
dollars ($3,541,036.00), and veto and withhold my approval of all the sum in said item in excess of said 
sum of three million, five hundred and forty-one thousand, thirty-six dollars ($3,541,036.00). 

In section 1, item: " For Judges Supreme Court, eighty thousand dollars ($80,000.00) per annum." 
I approve in the sum of seventy thousand dollars ($70,000.00) per annum. I veto and withhold my ap- 
proval of all of the sum in said item in excess of said sum of seventy thousand dollars ($70, 000. 00) per. 
annum. 

In section 1, 1 veto item: " For clerks to secretary for Judge Supreme Court, two at two thousand 
dollars ($2,000.00) each, four thousand dollars ($4,000.00) per annum. 

In section 1, item: "For Judges Superior Court and circuit courts, six hundred and twenty-three 
thousand dollars ($623,000.00) per annum. " I approve in the sum of four hundred and forty-five thousand 
dollars ($445,000.00) per annum. I veto and withhold my approval of all of the sum in said item in excess 
of said sum of four hundred and forty-five thousand dollars ($445,000.00) per annum. 

The above reductions and vetoes are made because they provide for salaries ol officers made in antici-

finally failed of passage into law. 
Respectufully submitted, 

E. F. Dunne, Governor.

any warning then and there attempted to kill said Ailing by firing a shot

RELIEF— FOOT AND MOUTH DISEASE, CLAIMS (1). 

§ 1. Appropriates $975,563.48 to pay one-half of § 2. How drawn, 
appraised value of live stock slaughtered 
, in suppression of foot and mouth disease, § 3. Emergency, 
to persons named. 

Certificate. 

(House Bill No. 415. Appeoved May 20, 1915.) 

An Act to provide for the payment of fifty per cent of losses sustained 
on account of the slaughter of live stock to suppress the foot-and- 
mouth disease and to make an appropriation therefor. 

Whereas, A contagious and infectious disease known as foot and 
mouth disease, to which cattle, sheep, other ruminants and swine are 
highly susceptible, has been prevalent in Illinois (as well as many 
other States) since November 1, 1914, and 

Whereas, The fact has been determined that the only effective 
means of eradicating said disease, is by the slaughter of all animals 
affected with or known to have been exposed to the contagion thereof, 
and 

Whereas, In order to protect the live stock interests within the 
State as well as those of the country at large, many residents of the 
State have been compelled to subject cattle, sheep and swine to slaugh- 
ter in order to facilitate the complete eradication of foot and mouth 
disease within the State, and 

Whereas, The United States Government has paid or provided 
for the payment of fifty (50) per cent of the losses sustained on account 
of the slaughter of such live stock and it is just and equitable that the 
State should contribute a like amount to such loss; therefore, 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, 
represented in the General Assembly: That the sum of nine hundred 
seventy-five thousand, five hundred sixty-three dollars and forty-eight 
cents ($975,563.48), or so much thereof as shall be necessary, be, and 
the same hereby is appropriated out of any funds in the State treasury 
not otherwise appropriated to reimburse and pay one-half of the ap- 
praised value of live stock slaughtered for the suppression of the foot- 
and-mouth disease, in accordance with the report of the State Board of 
Live Stock Commissioners of the State of Illinois and the Bureau of 
Animal Industry of the United States, presented herewith to the fol- 
lowing named persons in the several and respective sums as hereinafter 
stated, to-wit: 

HEEDS SLAUGHTEEED WITHIN THE STATE OF ILLINOIS

RELIEF— FOOT AND MOUTH DISEASE, CLAIMS (2). 

Preamble. § 2. How drawn. 

§ 1. Appropriates S104,609.17 to persons named for §3. Emergency, 
payment of 50 per cent losses incurred on 
account of foot and mouth disease, veterin- 
ary services, etc. 

(House Bill No. S85. Approved June 29, 1915.) 

An Act to provide for the payment of fifty per cent of the expense, 
costs and charges for burying, disinfecting premises, disinfectants, 
serum, certain claims for animals slaughtered, and assistant veter- 
inarians' services, paid out and provided on account of the slaughter 
of live stock to suppress the foot-and-mouth disease, and to make an 
appropriation therefor. 

Whereas, A contagious and infectious disease known as foot-and- 
mouth disease, to which cattle, sheep, other ruminants and swine are 
highly susceptible, has been prevalent in Illinois (as well as many 
other States) since November 1, 1914, and 

Whereas, The fact has been determined that the only effective 
means of eradicating said disease is by the slaughter of all animals 
affected with or known to have been exposed to the contagion thereof, 
and 

Whereas, In order to protect the live stock interests within the 
State as well as those of the country at large, many residents of the 
State have been compelled to subject cattle, sheep, and swine to slaugh- 
ter in order to facilitate the complete eradication of foot-and-mouth 
disease within the State, and 

Whereas, In the eradication of said disease it became necessary 
to bury live stock, disinfect the premises where such disease occurred 
and other places, purchase and procure disinfectants, and to procure and 
have the services of veterinarians and to incur other expenses and 
charges in that behalf, and 

Whereas, The United States Government has paid or provided for 
the payment of fifty per cent of the losses sustained on account of the 
slaughter of such live stock and fifty per cent of a large number of 
claims for burying, disinfecting, disinfectants and veterinarians' 
services, as aforesaid, and it is just and equitable that the State should

contribute a like amount to the payment of such claims, and that in 
certain cases the State should pay the full amount of costs and charges 
as hereinafter set forth, therefore 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, 
represented in the General Assembly: That the sum of one hundred 
fourteen thousand, three hundred ninety seven and 83/100 dollars 
($114,397.83), [$104,609.17] or so much thereof as shall be necessary, 
be, and the same is hereby appropriated out of any funds in the State 
treasury not otherwise appropriated, to reimburse and pay one-half of 
the costs, charges and expenses incurred for burying live stock, disin- 
fecting premises, and other property, and for property necessarily 
destroyed other than live stock, except as hereinafter set forth, in the 
eradication of said disease; for disinfectants and for veterinarians' 
services, and the full amount of certain claims for expenses necessarily 
incurred by the State of Illinois, as hereinafter set forth, for the sup- 
pression of the foot-and-mouth disease, in accordance with the report 
of the State Board of Live Stock Commissioners of the State of Illinois 
and the Bureau of Animal Industry of the United States, presented 
herewith to the following named persons in the several and respective 
sums as hereinafter stated, to-wit :

GOVERNOR'S VETO MESSAGE. 

State of Illinois, 
Executive Department, 
Springfield June, 29, 1915. 
To the Honorable, the House of Representatives of the General Assembly of Illinois: 

I return herewith, House Bill No. 885, "An Act to provide for the payment of fifty per cent of the ex- 
pense, costs and charges for burying, disinfecting premises, disinfectants, serum, certain claims for ani- 
mals slaughtered, and assistant veterinarians' services, paid out and provided on account of the slaughter 
of live stock to suppress the foot and mouth disease, and to make an appropriation therefor," and veto 
and withhold my approval from the following item and amount therein contained: 

In section 1, item: "To Great Western Serum Company, Chicago, Ills., $9,788.66." I veto this 
item on advice of the State Veterinarian, Dr. O. E. Dyson, a copy of whose letter is attached hereto 
and made a part hereof. 

Respectfully submitted, 

E. F. Dunne, Governor. 

June 28, 1915. 
Hon. Edward F. Dunne, Governor, State of Illinois, Springfield, Illinois: 

Dear Sir: I have examined House Bill No. 885 and the various items contained therein, all of 
which I consider valid claims against the State with the exception of the item covering the payment of 
$9,788.66 to the Great Western Serum Company for the alleged destruction of serum by State and Federal 
authorities. 

In this connection I beg to advise that a portion of the serum in question was held by the Federal 
authorities pending a test to determine whether or not the serum so held was infected with the contagion 
of foot and mouth disease. During the interim, however, owing to bacterial contamination during its 
preparation and the lack of proper cold storage facilities, the serum so held underwent a putrefactive 
decomposition and became worthless. The remainder of the item under the caption of serum destroyed 
covered an estimate of the amount of serum in the blood of hogs slaughtered on account of being affected 
with or known to have been exposed to the contagion of foot and mouth disease. Full p ay ment, amount- 
ing to $5,573.22 representing 50 per cent of the value of the hogs so slaughtered, was made under the pro- 
visions of House Bill No. 415. 

The Federal author itiesrefuse torecognize the validity of the claim made by the Great Western Serum 
Company for losses sustained, the payment of which would establish a precedent for the filing of innum- 
erable claims of a similar nature, which in the aggregate would amount to thousands upon thousands of 
dollars. 

Very truly yours, 

O. E. Dyson, State Veterinarian.

RELIEF— FOOT AND MOUTH DISEASE, CLAIMS (3). 

§ 1. Appropriates $124,124.97 to persons named for § 2. How drawn, 
payment of 50 per cent losses incurred on 
account of foot and mouth disease, veter- § 3. Emergency, 
inary services, etc. 

Certificate. 

(House Bill No. 979. Appkoved June 29, 1915.; 

An Act making an appropriation for the payment of the expense, costs 
and charges for destruction of property, burying, disinfecting premises, 
disinfectants, certain claims for animals slaughtered, for the rendition 
of services and labor and assistant veterinarians services paid out and 
provided on account of the slaughter of live stack to suppress the foot- 
and-mouth disease. 

Whereas, A contagious and infectious disease known as foot-and- 
mouth disease, to which cattle, sheep, other ruminants and swine are 
highly susceptible, has been prevalent in Illinois (as well as many other 
states) since November 1, 1914; and 

Whereas, The fact has been determined that the only effective 
means of eradicating said disease is by the slaughter of all animals 
affected with or known to have been exposed to the contagion thereof; 
and 

Whereas, In order to protect the live stock interests within the 
State, as well as those of the country at large, many residents of the 
State have been compelled to subject cattle, sheep, and swine to slaughter 
in order to facilitate the complete eradication of foot-and-mouth disease 
within the State; and 

Whereas, In the eradication of said disease it became necessary to 
destroy property, to bury live stock, build trenches, disinfect the premises 
where such disease occurred and other places, purchase and procure dis- 
infectants, and to procure and have the services of veterinarians and to 
incur other expenses and charges in that behalf; and 

Whereas, The United States Government has paid or provided for 
the payment of one hundred per cent (100%) in full in many instances, 
and in others of fifty per cent (50%) of the losses sustained on account 
of the slaughter of such live stock, and of one hundred per cent (100%) 
in full in many instances, and in others fifty per cent (50%) of a large 
number of claims for burying, disinfecting, disinfectants and veter- 
inaians' services, as aforesaid, and it is just and equitable that the State 
should contribute like amounts respectively and proportionately to the 
payments of such claims, and that in certain cases the State should pay 
the full amount of costs, damages and charges as hereinafter set forth; 
and 

Whereas, The claims hereinafter mentioned have been presented 
since the 6th day of May, 1915, subsequent to the introduction of a 
certain bill (House Bill No. 885) which did not provide for the con- 
tingencies and claims herein contained; therefore, 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, 
represented in the General Assembly: That the sum of one hundred 
twenty-four thousand, one hundred twenty-four and 97/100 dollars 
($124,124.97), or so much thereof as shall be necessary, be, and the 
same is hereby appropriated out of any funds in the State treasury not 
otherwise appropriated, to reimburse and pay the damages, advances,

to remain at home with her children, except that she may be absent for 
work a definite number of days each week to be specified in the court's 
order, when such work can be done by her without the sacrifice of health 
or the neglect of home and children; (4) such mother must, in the

An Act to tetter provide for the care and detention of feeble-minded 

persons. 
Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, 
represented in the General Assembly: The words "feeble-minded per- 
son" in this Act shall be construed to mean any person afflicted with 
mental defectiveness from birth or from any early age, so pronounced 
that he is incapable of managing himself and his affairs, or of being 
taught to do so, and requires supervision, control and care for his own 
welfare, or for the welfare of others, or for the welfare of the com-

munity, who is not classifiable as an "insane person" within the meaning 
of "An Act to revise the law in relation to the commitment and deten- 
tion of lunatics, and to provide for the appointment and removal of 
conservators, and to repeal certain Acts therein named," approved June 
21, 1893, in force July 1, 1893. 

§ 2. From and after the taking effect of this Act, no feeble-minded 
person shall be sent to any public institution for the feeble-minded 
except as hereinafter provided. 

§ 3. When any person residing in this State shall be supposed to 
be feeble-minded, and by reason of such mental condition of feeble- 
mindendess and of social conditions, such as want of proper supervision, 
control, care and support, or other causes, it is unsafe and dangerous 
to the welfare of the community, for him to be at large without super- 
vision, control and care, any relative, guardian, or conservator or any 
reputable citizen of the county in which such supposed feeble-minded 
person resides or is found, may, by leave of court first had and obtained, 
file with the clerk of either the circuit court, or of the county court of 
the county in which such supposed feeble-minded person resides or is 
found, or with the clerk of a city court including the municipal court 
of Chicago, when the supposed feeble-minded person resides or is found 
in the city, a petition in writing, setting forth that the person therein 
named is feeble-minded, the fact and circumstances of the social con- 
ditions, such as want of proper supervision, control, care and support, 
or other causes making it unsafe or dangerous to the welfare of the 
community for such person to be at large without supervision, control 
or care; also the name and residence, or that such name or residence is 
unknown to the petitioner, of some person, if any there be, actually 
supervising, caring for or supporting such person, and of at least one 
person if any there be legally chargeable with such supervision, care 
or support, and also the names and residences or that same are unknown 
of the parents or guardians. 

The petition shall also allege whether or not such person has been 
examined by a qualified physician having personal knowledge of the 
condition of such alleged feeble-minded person. There shall be indorsed 
on such petition the names and residences of witnesses known to 
petitioner by whom the truth of the allegations of the petition may be 
proved, as well as the name and the residence of a qualified physician, if 
any is known to the petitioner, having personal knowledge of the case. 
All persons named in such petition shall be made defendants by name and 
shall be notified of such proceedings by summons, if residents of this 
State, in the same manner as is now or may hereafter be required by 
law in proceedings in chancery in this State, except onty as herein 
otherwise provided. All persons whose names are stated in the petition 
to be unknown to the petitioner shall be deemed and taken as defendants 
by the name and designation of "all whom it may concern." The 
petition shall be verified by affidavit, which shall be sufficient if it states 
that it is based upon information and belief. Process shall be issued 
against all persons made parties by the designation of "all whom it may 
concern," by such description and notice given by publication as required 
in this Act, shall be sufficient to authorize the court to hear and 



CHARITIES. 24? 



determine the suit as though the parties had been sued by their proper 
names. 

§ 4. The summons shall require all defendants to personally appear 
at the time and place stated therein, and to bring into court the alleged 
feeble-minded person. No written answer shall be required to the 
petition, but the cause shall stand for trial upon the petition on the 
return day of the summons. The summons shall be made returnable 
at any time within twenty days after the date thereof, and may be 
served the same as summons in chancery is served by any officer author- 
ized by law to serve processes of the court issuing such summons. No 
service of process shall be necessary upon any of the defendants named, 
if they appear or are brought before the court personally without service 
of summons. 

Whenever it shall appear from the petition or from affidavit filed 
in the cause that any named defendant, other than the alleged feeble- 
minded person, resides or hath gone out of the State, or on due inquiry 
cannot be found, or is concealed within this State, or that his place of 
residence is unknown, so that process cannot be served upon him, and 
whenever any person is made a defendant under the name and designa- 
tion of "all whom it may concern/' the clerk of the court shall cause 
publication to be made once in some newspaper of general circulation 
published in his county, and if there be none published in his county, 
then in a newspaper of general circulation published in the nearest 
place to his county in this State, which publication shall be substan- 
tially as follows : 

(Give names of such defendants and) To all whom it may concern 
(if there be any defendant under such designation) : 

TAKE NOTICE— That on the day of A. D. 

. . . . , a petition was filed by in the 

court of to have a certain person named 

declared feeble-minded and to have the court provide for the care and 
the detention of such person. 

Now, unless you appear within twenty days after the date of this 
notice and resist the granting of the prayer of such petition, the petition 
will be taken for confessed and a decree entered. 



Clerk 
Dated 

and the clerk shall also within ten days after the publication of such 
notice send a copy thereof by mail, addressed to such defendants whose 
place of residence is stated in the petition and who can not be served 
with summons. Notice given by such publication shall, be as effectual 
for every purpose as if such person or persons were duly served with 
summons personally. The certificate of the clerk that he has sent such 
notice pursuant to this section, shall be conclusive evidence thereof. 
Every defendant who shall be duly summoned shall be held to appear 
and answer either in writing or orally in open court, on the return day 
of the summons, and if the summons be served less than one day prior 
to the return day thereof, then on the following day. Every defendant 
who shall be notified by publication, as herein provided, shall be held 
to appear and answer, either in writing or orally, within twenty days 



248 CHARITIES. 



after the date of the publication notice. The answer shall have no 
greater weight as evidence than the petition. 

In default of an answer at the time herein specified or at such 
further time as by order of court may be granted to the defendant, the 
petition may be taken as confessed against all defendants, except the 
alleged feeble-minded persons. 

§ 5. Upon the filing of the petition, or upon motion at any time 
thereafter, if it shall be made to appear to the court by evidence given 
under oath that it is for the best interests of the alleged feeble-minded 
person and the community that such person be at once taken into 
custody, or that the service of summons will be ineffectual to secure the 
presence of such person, a warrant may issue on the order of the court, 
directing that such person be taken into custody and brought before the 
court forthwith or at such time and place the judge may appoint, and 
pending the hearing of the petition, the court may make any order for 
the detention of such feeble-minded person, or the placing of such 
feeble-minded person under temporary guardianship of some suitable 
person, on such person entering into a recognizance for his appearance," 
as the court shall deem proper. But no such alleged feeble-minded 
person shall, during the pendency of the hearing of the petition, be 
detained in any place provided for the detention of persons charged 
with or convicted of any criminal or quasi criminal offense. 

§ 6. At any time after the filing of the petition and pending the 
final disposition of the case, the court may continue the hearing from 
time to time, and may order such alleged feeble-minded person to sub- 
mit to the examination of some qualified physician or psychologist, and 
the court may also require by rule or order that the petitioner answer 
under oath such interrogatories as may be propounded, in a form to be 
prescribed by the Board of Administration. 

§ 7. The hearing on the petition shall be by the court and a com- 
mission to be appointed by the court, of two qualified physicians or one 
qualified physician and one qualified psychologist, residents of the 
county, to be selected by the judge on account of their known competency 
and integrity, and evidence shall be heard and proceedings had as in 
any other civil proceedings. 

Evidence shall also be heard and- inquiry made into the social con- 
ditions, such as want of proper supervision, control, care or support, 
and other causes making it unsafe or dangerous to the welfare of the 
community for such person to be at large, without supervision, control 
and care. The commission shall also make a personal examination 
touching the mental condition of the alleged feeble-minded person. 
Upon the conclusion of the hearing, inquiry and examination, the com- 
mission shall file with the clerk of the court a report in writing, showing 
the result of their examination of the mental condition and social con- 
ditions aforesaid, setting forth their conclusions and recommendations, 
and shall also file with such report their sworn answers to such inter- 
rogatories as may be propounded in a form to be prescribed by the 
Board of Administration Such answers may be based upon their best 
knowledge and belief. 



CHARITIES. 249 



§ 8. The report shall have the same effect as reports of masters in 
chancery, and shall be subject to be set aside or overruled by the court 
the same as reports of masters in chancery: Provided, however, that 
there shall be no need of making objections and taking exceptions to 
same, and the court shall have the power to dismiss the proceedings, 
order a new hearing by the same or a new commission, or make such 
findings of fact in lieu of the findings in such report as may be justified 
by the evidence heard, and on the review by the court of the findings 
and recommendations of the commission, the court may hear such further 
evidence as it thinks fit. 

§ 9. If the court shall find such alleged feeble-minded person not 
to be feeble-minded as defined in this Act, he shall order the petition 
dismissed and the person discharged. If the court shall find such 
alleged feeble-minded person to be feeble-minded, and subject to be 
dealt with under this Act, having due regard to all the circumstances 
appearing on the hearing, the guiding and controlling thought of the 
court throughout the proceedings to be the welfare of the feeble-minded 
person and the welfare of the community, it shall enter a decree, appoint- 
ing a suitable person to be the guardian of the person of such feeble- 
minded person, or directing that such feeble-minded person be sent to 
a private institution qualified and licensed under the laws of the State 
to receive such person whose managers are willing to receive him, or may 
direct that he be placed in a public institution for the feeble-minded and 
such decree so entered shall stand and continue binding upon all per- 
sons whom it may concern until rescinded or otherwise regularly 
superseded or set aside. 

Provided, however, that any guardian appointed under this Act 
shall be subordinate to any guardian or conservator previously or sub- 
sequently appointed, pursuant to "An Act to revise the law in relation 
to idiots, lunatics, drunkards and spendthrifts," approved March 26, 
1874, and in force July 1, 1874, or "An Act in regard to guardians and 
wards," approved April 10, 1872, in force July 1, 1872. 

§ 10. An order that the feeble-minded person be placed under 
guardianship shall confer on the person named in the order as guardian 
such powers, subject to the regulations of the Board of Administration, 
as would have been exercisable if he had been the father of the feeble- 
minded, and the feeble-minded person had been under the age of four- 
teen. 

§ 11. Where an order has been made that a feeble-minded person be 
placed under guardianship, the guardian may be removed by the court 
that appointed him, on the application of the feeble-minded person, or 
of any relative or friend of the feeble-minded person, or of any reputable 
citizen or of the Board of Administration; and when the guardian dies, 
resigns or is removed, the court may, on a like application, appoint a 
suitable person to act in his stead. And on application of the guardian, 
or of the feeble-minded person, or of any relative or friend of the feeble- 
minded person, or of any reputable citizen, or of the Board of Adminis- 
tration, the court that appointed the guardian, on being satisfied that 
the case is, or has become one unsuitable for guardianship, may order 
that the feeble-minded person be discharged from guardianship and set

free, or be sent to a private institution qualified, and licensed under the 
laws of the State to receive him, whose managers are willing to receive 
him, or be sent to a public institution for the feeble-minded, as seems 
best to the court, having regard to all the circumstances appearing on the 
hearing. No order shall be made discharging or varying a prior order 
placing the feeble-minded person under guardianship without giving one 
or more of the relatives or friends of the feeble-minded person, his 
guardian and the Board of Administration notice and an opportunity 
to be heard. 

§ 12. Upon the entry of an order directing that a feeble-minded 
person be sent to an institution for feeble-minded persons, the clerk of 
the court shall send a copy of the order to the superintendent of the 
institution to which such feeble-minded person is ordered to be sent, 
and such superintendent shall receive such feeble-minded person as a 
charge in such institution : Provided, that if on account of the crowded 
condition of a public institution it is impossible to accommodate such 
feeble-minded person, the superintendent shall inform the court with the 
promise that the court be notified at once when the next vacancy occurs, 
and that such feeble-minded person be then received as a charge in such 
public institution. 

§ 13. For the conveyance of any feeble-minded person to any public 
or private institution for the feeble-minded, admission thereto having 
been ordered by the court as herein provided, the clerk shall issue a war- 
rant in duplicate directed to the petitioner, or to some suitable reputable 
person, as the judge may select, commanding him to take such feeble- 
minded person and deliver him to the superintendent of the institution. 
When the judge thinks necessary, he may direct the clerk to authorize 
the employment of one or more assistants, but no feeble-minded female 
shall be taken to the institution by any male person not her husband, 
father, brother or son, without the attendance of some woman of good 
character and mature age chosen for the purpose by the judge. Upon 
receiving the feeble-minded person, the superintendent of the institution 
shall endorse upon the warrant his receipt, naming the person or persons 
from whom the feeble-minded person is received, and one cop} 7 ' of the 
warrant so endorsed shall be returned to the clerk of the court to be filed 
with the other papers in the case, and the other shall be left with the 
superintendent and the person delivering the feeble-minded person shall 
endorse thereon that he has so delivered him, and said duplicate warrant 
shall be prima facie evidence of the facts set forth therein and in said 
endorsement. 

§ 14. No feeble-minded person admitted to an institution for the 
feeble-minded pursuant to an order of court as herein provided shall be 
discharged therefrom except as herein provided, except that nothing 
herein contained shall abridge the right of petition for the writ of habeas 
corpus. At any time after the admission of the feeble-minded person to 
an institution for the feeble-minded, pursuant to an order of court as 
herein provided, the feeble-minded person, or any of the relatives or 
friends of the feeble-minded person, or any reputable citizen or the super- 
intendent of the institution having the feeble-minded person in charge, 
or the Board of Administration, may petition the court that entered the 



CHARITIES. 251 



order of admission, to discharge the feeble-minded person, or to vary the 
order of the court sending the feeble-minded person to an institution. 
If, on the hearing of the petition, the court is satisfied that the welfare 
of the feeble-minded person, or the welfare of others, or the welfare of the 
community requires his discharge, or a variation of the order, the court 
may enter such order of discharge or variation, as the court thinks proper. 
Discharges and variations of orders may be made for either of the follow- 
ing causes: Because the person adjudged to be feeble-minded is not 
feeble-minded ; because he has so far improved as to be capable of caring 
for himself; because the relatives or friends of the feeble-minded person 
are able and willing to supervise, control, care for and support him and 
request his discharge, and in the judgment of the superintendent of the 
institution having the person in charge, no evil consequences are likely 
to follow such discharge; but the enumeration of grounds of discharge 
or variation herein shall not exclude other grounds of discharge or varia- 
tion which the court, in its discretion, may deem adequate, having due 
regard for the welfare of the person concerned, or the welfare of others, 
or the welfare of the community. On any petition of discharge or varia- 
tion, the court may discharge the feeble-minded person from all super- 
vision, control and care, or may place him under guardianship, or may 
transfer him from a public institution to a private institution, or from 
a private institution to a public institution, as the court thinks fit under 
all the circumstances appearing on the hearing of the petition. The 
superintendent of the institution having the feeble-minded person in 
charge, must be notified of the time and place of hearing on any petition 
for discharge or variation, as the court shall direct, and no order of dis- 
charge or variation shall be entered without giving such superintendent 
a reasonable opportunity to be heard; and the court may notify such 
other persons, relatives and friends of the feeble-minded person as the 
court may think proper of the time and place of the hearing on any 
petition for discharge or variation of prior order. The denial of one 
petition for discharge or variation shall be no bar to another on the same 
or different grounds within a reasonable time thereafter, such reasonable 
time to be determined by the court in its discretion, discouraging fre- 
quent, repeated, frivolous, ill-founded petitions for discharge or variation 
of prior order. On reception of a feeble-minded person in an institution 
pursuant to an order of court under this Act, the superintendent of the 
institution under regulations of the Board of Administration shall cause 
the feeble-minded person to be examined touching his mental condition, 
and if upon such examination it is found the person is not feeble-minded, 
it shall be the duty of the superintendent to petition the court for a 
discharge or variation of the order sending him to the institution. Any 
person sent to an institution pursuant to an order of court under this Act 
shall have the right to at least one hearing on a petition for 1 discharge 
or variation within one year after the date of the order sending him to an 
institution. 

§15. Every person admitted to any institution for the feeble-minded 
shall have all reasonable opportunity and facility for communication with 
his friends, and be permitted to write and send letters, providing they 
contain nothing of an immoral or personally offensive character and 



252 CHARITIES. 



letters written by any charge to any member of the Board of Administra- 
tion, or to any member of the State Charities Commission, or to any 
State or county official, shall be forwarded unopened. But no leave of 
absence shall be granted except for good cause to be determined and 
approved by the Board of Administration in each case who shall take 
appropriate measures to secure for the feeble-minded person proper super- 
vision, control and care durirjg such leave of absence, and no leave of 
absence shall be for a longer period than two weeks in one calendar year. 

§ 16. In the event of a sudden or mysterious death of a charge of 
any public or private institution for the feeble-minded, a coroner's 
inquest shall be held as provided by law in other cases. Notice of the 
death of such person, and the cause thereof, shall in all cases be sent 
to the judge of the court having jurisdiction, over such person, and the 
fact of the death, with the time place and alleged cause shall be entered 
upon the docket. 

§ 17. Any person who shall knowingly contrive, or who shall con- 
spire to have any person adjudged feeble-minded under this Act unlaw- 
fully and improperly, or any person who shall violate any provision of 
this Act, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and upon conviction 
thereof shall be fined not exceeding $1,000, or imprisoned not exceeding 
one year, or both, at the discretion of the court in which such conviction 
is had. 

§ 18. The costs of proceedings in feeble-mindedness shall be 
defrayed from the county treasury, unless otherwise ordered by the 
court as herein provided. But when on the hearing of the petition, the 
person alleged to be feeble-minded is found not to be feeble-minded, 
the court, in its discretion, may require that the costs shall be paid by 
the person who filed the petition, and may render judgment against him 
therefor, except that judgment for costs shall be rendered against the 
petitioner who filed the petition pursuant to the direction of a court as 
provided in sections 20 and 21. The fees paid for attendance of wit- 
nesses and execution of legal process, shall be the same as are allowed 
by law for similar service in other cases. For service as commissioner, 
the sum of $5.00 per day and the actual and necessary traveling expenses 
shall be allowed, to each person so employed. But when the proceedings 
are instituted in a court of any county of which the alleged feeble- 
minded person is not a resident, in case a judgment for costs is not 
rendered against the petitioner as above provided, the judge of the 
county court of the county in which the said feeble-minded person 
resides shall be furnished with a transcript of the record and findings 
in the case, and thereupon the said county shall be liable for the costs 
of the proceedings. 

§ 19. Where an order that a feeble-minded person be placed under 
guardianship or be sent to a private or public institution, is made under 
this Act, the court entering the order, or any court having jurisdiction 
under this Act, may at any time, on the application of the petitioner, 
or of the guardian, or of the managers of the institution or of the Board 
of Administration, as the case may be, make an order requiring the 
feeble-minded person, or any person liable or undertaking to maintain 
him, to contribute such sums towards the expenses of his guardianship, 
or of his maintenance in the institution and any charges incidental 



CHARITIES. 253 



thereto, including the costs of the proceedings in feeble-mindedness, of 
his conveyance to the institution, and in the event of his death in the 
institution his funeral expenses, as seems reasonable, having regard to 
the ability of the feeble-minded person, or of the person liable or under- 
taking to maintain him. Any such order may be enforced against any 
property of the feeble-minded person, or of the person liable or under- 
taking to maintain him, in the same way as if it were a judgment or 
decree for temporary alimony in a divorce case. When a conservator 
of the estate of the feeble-minded person under guardianship, or in an 
institution under this Act, has been, or is appointed pursuant to "An 
Act to revise the law in relation to idiots, lunatics, drunkards, and spend- 
thrifts," approved March 26, 1874, in force July 1, 1874, any such order 
for contribution to maintenance may be made and enforced against such 
conservator only by the court that appointed such conservator and in 
the mode and manner prescribed by said last named act. 

§ 20. When a child is brought before a "juvenile" court as a 
dependent or delinquent child, if it appears to the court, on the testi- 
mony of a physician or a psychologist or other evidence that such person 
or child is feeble-minded within the meaning of this Act, the court may 
adjourn the proceedings and direct some suitable officer of the court or 
other suitable reputable person to file a petition under this Act; and 
the court may order that pending the preparation, filing and hearing 
of such petitions, the person or child be detained in a place of safety, 
or be placed under the guardianship of some suitable person on that 
person entering into recognizance for his appearance. 

§ 21. On the conviction by a court of record of competent juris-

ing jurisdiction confined to or within the territory of the city of 
Chicago, or any part thereof, shall be vested and consolidated in the 
municipal government of the city of Chicago, and for that purpose all 
municipal corporations and quasi-municipal corporations other than 
the city of Chicago whose jurisdiction is confined as aforesaid, and their 
corporate authorities, shall be dissolved and abrogated and shall be 
merged in and consolidated with the city of Chicago, except that towns 
or townships shall be deemed to continue in existence only in so far as 
their continual existence may be necessary to the collection of taxes; and 
the city of Chicago shall be the successor of said municipal corporations 
and quasi-municipal corporations, and shall succeed to all their property 
and corporate rights and powers and be subject to all their lawful debts, 
obligations and liabilities, whether such rights or liabilities be accrued 
or contingent. No town or park district shall hereafter be formed under 
general laws now in force so as to be located entirely or partly within 
the limits of the city of Chicago. The present park commissioners, 
boards of park commissioners and park boards hereby consolidated in 
the municipal government of Chicago, shall continue to perform their 
official functions until the appointment and qualification of the board 
of park commissioners hereinafter provided for; and the present board 
of directors of the public library and board of inspectors of the house of 
correction hereby consolidated in the municipal government of Chicago,

of Chicago shall provide for the government and control of such library 
and house of correction respectively; and thereupon the official func- 
tions of such park commissioners, boards of park commissioners, park 
boards, board of directors, and board of inspectors shall terminate, and 
their respective offices shall be abolished. Within thirty (30) days after 
the adoption of this Act in the manner hereinafter provided for, a 
board of park commissioners, consisting of nine (9) members, shall be

and the three (3) remaining members shall be residents of that portion 
of the city lying west of the north and south branches of the Chicago 
River, at the time of their appointment and during their term of office. 
Of the commissioners first appointed, one of the members from each of 
said portions of the city shall be appointed for a term of two (2) years, 
another for a term of four (4) years, and the third for a term of six 
(6) years, and upon the expiration of the term of each member his suc-

from their own number who shall hold office for a term of one (1) year. 
Such board of park commissioners shall keep records of their official 
transactions and doings. The yeas and nays shall be taken and entered

situated within the territory of the city, the powers and functions of 
such town or township, park, park district or other municipal corpora- 
tion or quasi-municipal corporation thus becoming included entirely 
within the city shall, if a majority of the legal voters of such municipal 
corporation or quasi-municipal corporation voting upon the question 
consent to such annexation, be vested and consolidated in the municipal 
government of the city of Chicago, and such municipal corporation or 
quasi-municipal corporation and its corporate authorities shall there- 
upon be dissolved and abrogated and shall be merged in and consolidated 
with the city of Chicago, subject in every respect to the provisions of 
this article. Whenever, after such annexation, it shall be necessary to 
take a vote in such annexed territory or jurisdiction of the legal voters 
therein on any question upon which their votes shall be separately 
counted and returned, the board of election commissioners shall furnish 
separate ballot boxes in which the votes of the legal voters residing

accrued before this Act takes effect in favor of or against any of the 
municipal corporations or quasi-municipal corporations or corporate 
authorities hereby abrogated may be prosecuted by or against the city 
of Chicago. When a different remedy is given by this Act which may 
properly be made applicable to any right existing at the time this Act 
takes effect, the same shall be deemed cumulative to the remedies before 
provided arid may be used accordingly.

of creditors, or those holding obligations created in view or respect of 
any tax, assessment or power of taxation or assessment, and, in the event

of the annual appropriation bill for such year, not exceeding in the aggre- 
gate, exclusive of the amount levied for the payments of bonded indebted- 
ness and the interest on bonded indebtedness, one and six-tenths per 
centum of the assessed value of the taxable property within said city, 
as assessed and equalized according to law for municipal purposes. The 
city council in its annual tax levy ordinance shall specify the amount 
levied for the payment of bonded indebtedness, the amount levied for the 
payment of interest on bonded indebtedness and the amount levied 
for corporate purposes, including general city, park, library, and house of

in the county clerk's office. The county clerk shall extend upon the col- 
lector's warrant all of said corporate purposes taxes, subject to the limi- 
tation herein contained, in a single column as the city of Chicago tax.

for the payments of bonded indebtedness and the interest on bonded in- 
debtedness, shall exceed, as to the corporate purposes tax, the limitation 
herein contained, such excesses shall be disregarded, and the residue only 
treated as certified for extension. In such case all items for corporate 
purposes in such tax levy, except those for payments of bonded indebted- 
ness and the interest on bonded indebtedness", shall be reduced pro rata. 
The rate so fixed shall not be further impaired by reason of the require-

May 9, 1901, as thereafter amended, but after all reductions have been 
made proportionately, as required by said act, shall be restored to the 
figures of percentage fixed under the provisions of this section. The 
taxes levied shall be collected and enforced in the same manner and by the 
same officers as state and county taxes, and shall be paid over by the 
officers collecting the same to the city treasurer, and the city treasurer of 
th city of Chicago shall keep, under the direction of the city comptroller, 
a separate account in conformity to said tax levy, and the funds in same 
shall be paid out by him upon the order of the proper authority for the 
purposes only for which the same were levied. 

§ 2. Reports of receipts, expenditures and operations and 
estimate of expenses to be transmitted to the city council.] the 
several departments, bureaus, officers, boards, commissions and other 
institutions for the support or maintenance of which moneys are appro- 
priated by the city council shall, respectively, transmit to the city coun- 
cil, at such time as. the city council may direct, such statements of their 
receipts, expenditures and operations as the city council may require. 
Such departments, bureaus, officers, boards, commissions and institutions, 
respectively, at such time before the passage of the annual appropriation 
bill by the city council, and in such manner and form as the city council 
may direct, shall severally prepare an estimate or estimates, in writing, 
of the amount of expenditures required for their respective departments, 
bureaus, offices, boards, commissions and institutions. 

§ 3. City council may create board of estimate.] The city 
council may create a board of estirrfate, the members of which shall be 
selected or designated in such manner as the city council may provide. 
Such board of estimate shall, before the passage of the annual appropria- 
tion bill by the city council, submit to the city council at such time and 
in such manner and form as the city council may direct, a report or 
reports of its estimates of moneys necessary to be appropriated in said 
bill. The city council may require the several departments, bureaus, 
officers, boards and commissions of the city government, and other insti- 
tutions for the support or maintenance of which moneys are appropriated 
by the city council, to transmit to said board of estimate, at such time 
and in such manner and form as the city council may direct, an estimate

AETICLE III. 

INDEBTEDNESS. 

Section 1. Limit of city's indebtedness.] The city of "Chicago 
may become indebted for municipal, educational and school building 
purposes to an amount (including its existing indebtedness and the 
indebtedness of the corporations or corporate authorities consolidated 
with the government of the city and whose indebtedness the city has 
assumed by this Act and the indebtedness of all other municipal corpo- 
rations lying wholly within the limits of said city, and the city's propor- 
tionate share of the indebtedness of the county of Cook and of the 



270 CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 



sanitary district of Chicago, which shall be determined as hereinafter 
provided) in the aggregate not exceeding 5 per centum of the full value 
of the taxable property within the limits of said city as ascertained 
by the last assessment for State or municipal purposes previous to the 
incurring of such indebtedness. 

§ 2. City's proportionate share of cook county's indebted- 
ness.] For the purpose of determining such aggregate indebtedness, 
the city's proportionate share of the indebtedness of the county of 
Cook shall bear the same ratio to the entire existing indebtedness of the 
county of Cook as the value of the. taxable property within the city of 
Chicago bears to the value of the taxable property in the entire county 
of Cook, as ascertained by the last assessment for municipal and county 
purposes, respectively, previous to the incurring of any increase in the 
debt of the city. The amount of the indebtedness of the county of 
Cook, upon request of the city comptroller at any time shall be certified 
to such comptroller by the county clerk of Cook county under the seal 
of the board of county commissioners. If the city comptroller ques- 
tions the correctness of such certificate the amount of the county's 
indebtedness may be determined summarily by the circuit court of 
Cook county upon proceedings brought by the city against the county 
for that purpose. The certificate of the county clerk or the judgment 
of the circuit court, as the case may be, shall be recorded in the office 
of the recorder of deeds of Cook county, and the amount thus recorded 
shall be conclusive as to the indebtedness of the county of Cook for the 
purposes herein contemplated. 

§ 3. City's proportionate share of sanitary district's in- 
debtedness.] For the purpose of determining such aggregate indebted- 
ness, the city's proportionate share of the indebtedness of the sanitary 
district of Chicago shall bear the same ratio to the entire existing 
indebtedness of the said sanitary district as the value of the taxable 
property of that portion of the city lying within said sanitary district 
bears to the value of the whole taxable property in said sanitary dis- 
trict, as ascertained by the last assessment for municipal and sanitary 
district purposes, respectively, previous to the incurring of any increase 
in the debt of the city. The amount of indebtedness of the sanitary 
district, upon request of the city comptroller at any time, shall be certi- 
fied to such comptroller by the clerk of the board of trustees of the 
sanitary district under the seal of such board. If the city comptroller 
questions the correctness of such certificate the amounts in dispute may 
be determined summarily by the circuit court of Cook county upon 
proceedings brought by the city of Chicago against the sanitary district 
for that purpose. The certificate of the clerk of the board of trustees 
of the sanitary district or the judgment of the circuit court, as the case 
may be, shall be recorded in the office of the recorder of deeds of Cook 
county and the amounts thus recorded shall be conclusive as to the 
indebtedness of the sanitary district of Chicago for the purposes herein 
contemplated. 

§ 4. Bonds.] For the purpose of raising funds or securing any 
indebtedness the city council may issue interest-bearing coupon bonds, 
either registered or payable to bearer, or other evidences of indebted- 
ness or obligations, pledging the faith and credit of the city for their 



CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 271 



payment. Such issue shall be authorized by ordinance, stating the 
amount of the issue and the purpose or purposes for which such bonds 
or obligations are to be issued. Such bonds or obligations shall be 
issued in such denominations, payable in currency or in gold or silver 
coin, bearing such rate of interest, payable quarterly, semi-annually or 
annually, not exceeding 6 per cent, per annum, and payable at such 
time or times, not exceeding twenty years from the date of issue and 
at such place or places and with such conditions as to optional payment 
before maturity, as the ordinance authorizing the issue may prescribe. 
Each such bond or obligation shall bear the signature of the mayor and 
the city comptroller or such other officer or officers as the ordinance 
authorizing the issue shall direct. 

§ 5. Provision for payment of bonds and interests.] The city 
council shall, before or at the time of authorizing such bond issue, by 
ordinance provide for the collection of a direct annual tax sufficient to 
pay the interest on such bonds as it falls due, and also to pay and dis- 
cbarge the principal thereof at the time such principal shall fall due. 

§ 6. City funds may be invested in city bonds or tax war- 
rants.] The city council shall have authority to invest and reinvest 
any moneys in any fund set aside for some particular purpose, that is 
not immediately necessary for such purposes, including moneys in any 
sinking fund, in any bonds or tax warrants of the city. No bond thus 
acquired by the city with funds taken from any special fund shall be 
then retired or canceled unless of the series of bonds for the redemp- 
tion of which such fund was raised. 

§ 7. Issue of new bonds to be submitted to voters.] No new 
bonded indebtedness, other than for refunding purposes, shall be in- 
curred until the proposition therefor shall be consented to by a majority 
of the legal voters of the city voting on the question at any election, 
general, municipal or special. 

§ 8. Irregularity not to invalidate bonds in hands of holder 
for value.] The failure to comply with any of the requirements herein 
contained with reference to the form or manner of issuing bonds, or 
other obligations of the city, shall not invalidate, in the hands of a 
holder for value, any such bond or obligation which shall have been 
duly authorized as herein provided if the same constitutes equitably a 
charge against the city ; but upon such failure appropriate proceedings 
may be brought to restrain the issue of such bonds or to compel com- 
pliance with the law. 

§ 9. Assumption of indebtedness by acceptance of act.] The 
city of Chicago shall, under this Act, become bound for, and shall be 
held to have assumed, all the debts and liabilities of all municipal cor- 
porations, quasi-municipal corporations, local governments and authori- 
ties hereby consolidated with it, including any bonds heretofore issued 
under statutes intended to apply to all or any of such particular cor- 
porations or corporate authorities. 

ARTICLE IV.

272 CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 



with all powers heretofore granted to any park commissioners, park 
boards or boards of park commissioners whose authority is abrogated 
by this Act, and which powers have not heretofore lapsed or expired 
and are not inconsistent with the provisions of this Act, and all powers 
now existing with regard to any of said parks to enlarge the same by 
reclaiming submerged lands under public waters in this State and all 
powers and rights incidental thereto shall extend to the submerged 
lands under any and all public waters within the jurisdiction of or 
bordering upon the city of Chicago, for the benefit of said city. 

§ 2. City's powers of acquisition.] The city shall have power to 
acquire by dedication, gift, lease, contract, purchase or condemnation, 
lands or easements, inside or outside of the city limits, for park or 
boulevard purposes, and for ways connecting parks with the city or 
each other. 

§ 3. City may extend park system.] The city council shall have 
power to extend the park system of the city of Chicago, both within and 
outside of the city limits, by adding to or otherwise enlarging any parks 
and by opening and establishing new parks, and by extinguishing or 
acquiring such title to, or such easements and rights in or over any 
lands abutting on or in the vicinity of any existing or projected park 
as may be necessary or appropriate to control the surroundings of such 
parks so as to increase the advantage thereof to the public or secure to 
the public the full benefit, use and enjoyment thereof. For any such 
purpose the city may extinguish easements or rights in land and may 
acquire lands and easements and rights in or over land, by dedication* 
gift, lease, contract, purchase or condemnation, and may, in its dis- 
cretion, take under the power of eminent domain or otherwise, the 
title in fee simple absolute to any land which the city is authorized to 
acquire, or in or over which it is authorized to acquire easements and 
rights as aforesaid, and such title shall not terminate or be defeated by 
cessation or abandonment of the use for which it was acquired. The 
declaration of the city council that any such lands or easements or 
rights in or over land are necessary or appropriate for any such purpose 
shall constitute sufficient prima facie evidence of such necessity or 
appropriateness. The city council may vacate streets and alleys within 
the limits of or adjacent to any lands acquired for the purpose of this 
section. 

§ 4. May create or discontinue boulevards.] The city council, 
upon the recommendation of the board of park commissioners, shall 
have the power to set apart any street or streets of the city or any 
portion thereof for a boulevard or driveway and shall also have the 
power, upon such recommendation, to discontinue the use of such 
streets or any part thereof as boulevards and resume control over them 
as city streets. No street or portion thereof shall be changed into a 
boulevard, or discontinued as such, without the consent of the owners 
of the greater portion of the frontage of the lots abutting upon such 
street or boulevard or portion of street or boulevard. 

The board of park commissioners shall have authority to enter 
into contracts in the name of the city of Chicago with owners of prop-

appeal or writ of error as hereinafter provided, and not otherwise: 
Provided, however, that by mutual consent the same may be vacated or 
modified at a subsequent term, except as hereinafter provided.

each tract or parcel of land assessed, and no appeal from any such judg- 
ment or writ of error shall invalidate or delay the judgments, except as 
to the property concerning which the appeal or writ of error is taken.

the improvement, for the payment of which said special tax or special 
assessment is levied, on the property assessed from the date thereof, to 
the same extent and of equal force and validity as a lien for the general

such judgment is entered is sold to pay the same.

the petitioner to dismiss its proceedings, and for that purpose to vacate

collection of such assessment, and the court in which the judgment is 
rendered shall enter an order vacating or annulling said judgment of 
confirmation on motion of petitioner entered at any time after the ex- 
piration of the term at which judgment of confirmation was entered

for the making of said improvement within the time fixed by law, for 
the letting of the contract or that the making of such improvement 
under the original proceeding was never commenced, or that the making 
of said improvement under the prior proceedings was abandoned by 
petitioner, and no judgment entered in such proceeding so dismissed 
and vacated shall be a bar to another like or different improvement:

into, or the bonds mentioned in this Act issued, no judgment shall be 
vacated or modified or any petition dismissed at a term subsequent to 
that at which the judgment was rendered, nor the collection of the 
assessment be in any way stayed or delayed by the council or board of 
trustees, or board of local improvements, or any officer of the munici- 
pality, without the consent of the contractor and bondholder. 

The municipality on behalf of which such lien is created may sell 
and assign the same and either the municipality or the assignee of such 
judgment lien may at any time in its or his own name, file a bill to 
foreclose said lien in the same manner that foreclosures are by law per- 
mitted in case of delinquent general taxes: Provided, however, that no 
forfeiture of the property sought to be foreclosed shall have been as a 
prerequisite to such foreclosure.

necessary his retirement from active service, said board of trustees shall 
order the payment to such disabled fireman, monthly from said pension 
fund, a sum equal to one-half the monthly compensation paid to such 
fireman as salary, at the date of his retirement. If, however, after 
placing a fireman upon the pension roll, satisfactory jnoof is made to 
the pension board that such retired fireman has recovered from such 
physical or mental disability, the board shall order that his pension 
cease and that said fireman report back to the marshal or chief of the

subsequent to the date when this Act shall become effective. 

Where the wife of such deceased fireman shall have died prior or 
subsequent to the death of such fireman, leaving a minor child or children 
begotten by such fireman, the said board shall pay to the duly appointed 
guardian of such child or children, for their support and maintenance 
until it or they shall have reached the age of sixteen years, the sum of 
fifteen ($15.00) dollars per month to each. If the deceased fireman 
shall leave no widow or natural child or children surviving him, but shall 
leave a dependent natural father or mother, then said board of trustees 
shall direct the payment from said pension fund to such dependent 
father or mother, the sum of twenty-five ($25.00) dollars each monthly, 
provided it shall be proved that the deceased fireman at the time of his 
death was the sole and only support of such parent or parents. If at 
any time there shall not be sufficient money in such pension fund to pay 
each person entitled to the benefits thereof, the full amount per month 
as herein provided, then and in that event, an equal percentage of such 
monthly payments shall be paid to each beneficiary thereof until the 
said fund shall be replenished to warrant the payments in full to each 
of said beneficiaries.

after having served twenty years or more as a fireman, of which the last 
two years shall be continuous, may make application to be retired from 
active service, or if, after having served twenty years, as aforesaid, he 
shall be discharged from such fire service, the said board of trustees 
shall order and direct that such fireman shall be paid a monthly pension 
equal to one-half the amount of salary attached to the rank which he

charge ; and the said board upon the recommendation of the fire marshal 
or the chief officer of the fire department, shall have the power to assign 
such fireman so retired to the performance of light duties in such fire 
service in case of extraordinary emergencies. After the decease of such 
fireman, his widow, minor natural child or children, under sixteen years 
of age, his dependent natural parent or parents, if any surviving him, 
.shall be entitled to the pension provided for in this Act, but nothing in 
this or any other section of this Act shall warrant the payment of any 
annuity to any widow of a deceased fireman after she shall have 
remarried.

man, and all retired firemen who are now entitled to pension or annuity 
under the provisions of an Act entitled, "An Act to create a board of 
trustees of the firemen's pension fund; to provide and distribute such 
fund for the pensioning of disabled firemen and the widows and minor

hundred thousand inhabitants.

represented in the General Assembly: That in each city in this State 
having a population of two hundred thousand inhabitants, or more, 
. there shall be created, maintained and disbursed in the manner pre- 
scribed in this Act, a pension fund for policemen. 

§ 2. A board composed of five members shall be and constitute a 
board of trustees to provide for the disbursement of said fund, and to 
designate the beneficiaries thereof, as herein directed, which board shall 
be known as the board of trustees of the Police Pension Fund of said 
city. Three members of said board shall be residents of the county in 
which such city is located, and shall not hold, during their term of 
membership on said board, any other civil office or position under the 
Federal, State or municipal governments. They shall be appointed by 
the mayor of such city and shall serve for a period of three (3) years, 
and until their successors are appointed and qualified. The two other 
persons who, with the members above designated, shall constitute said 
board, shall be chosen, one from among the policemen of such city, and 
one from the body of the pensioners under this Act. The member to be 



CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 305 



chosen from the policemen shall be elected by secret ballot at an annual 
meeting to serve for the period of one year at which elections all police- 
man shall be entitled to vote. The member to be chosen from the body 
of pensioners shall be elected by secret ballot at an annual election to 
serve for a period of one year, at said election all retired policemen who 
are pensioners by the terms of this Act, and the widows of all deceased 
pensioners who are pensioners by the terms of this Act shall be entitled 
to vote. In the event that there shall be no widow surviving, then the 
guardian of any natural child or children of such deceased pensioner, 
where such children are also pensioners, may cast the vote to which 
such widow would have been entitled had she survived. Elections shall 
be held annually on the third Monday of April, at such place or places 
in such city, and under such regulations as shall be prescribed by said 
board : Provided, however, that no person entitled to vote under the pro- 
visions of this section shall cast more than one vote at any such election. 
In the event of the death, resignation or inability to act of any elected 
member of said board, the successor of such member shall be elected at 
a special election which shall be called by said board, and shall be con- 
ducted in the same manner as are the annual elections hereunder. Those 
members of the board of trustees of the Police Pension Fund provided 
for in an Act entitled : "An Act to provide for the setting apart, forma- 
tion and disbursement of a Police Pension Fund in cities, villages and 
incorporated towns," (approved April 29, 1887, in force July 1, 1887), 
as subsequently amended, shall serve as members of the board hereby 
created for the terms for which they were respectively appointed or 
elected, and until such time as their successors are respectively appointed 
or elected and qualified as herein provided. Suitable rooms for offices 
and meetings of such board shall be assigned by the mayor of such city. 
§ 3. Whenever any person shall have been or shall hereafter be 
appointed and sworn as a probationary or regular policeman in any 
city where such pension fund has been created, and shall have served 
for a period of twenty (20) years or more as such policeman in the 
police force of such city, or where the combined years of service of such 
person in the police department and fire department of such city shall 
aggregate twenty (20) }^ears or more, he may make application to said 
board for retirement, and said board shall order and direct that such 
policeman after his retirement from the police force, shall be paid a 
yearly pension equal to one-half of the amount of the salary attached 
to the rank which he may have held in said police force for one year 
immediately prior to the time of his retirement from the police force: 
Provided, however, the maximum of said pension shall not exceed the 
sum of nine hundred dollars ($900) and the minimum be not less than 
six hundred dollars ($600) per annum; and after the death of any 
such policeman, his widow, in case the marriage of such policeman shall 
have taken place more than six months prior to the time a pension is 
granted him hereunder, or natural child or children under sixteen (16) 
years of age of any such pensioner shall thereafter be paid the pension 
herein provided for such husband or father : And provided, further, 
that if such widow remarries, the pension herein provided shall cease. 

—20 L 



306 CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 



If such widow dies, or if no such widow survives such policeman, 
then the natural child or children of such policeman under the age of 
sixteen (16) years shall receive the same pension as heretofore received 
by such deceased father, to be divided equally among them. Pensions 
paid to children shall cease, as to any such child, upon his or her arriving 
at the age of sixteen (16) years. 

§ 4. Whenever any person who has been appointed and sworn as a 
regular or probationary policeman of any such city shall at any time 
become physically disabled while in, and in consequence of, the perform- 
ance of police duty, said board upon his written request, or without such 
request, upon the recommendation of the General Superintendent of 
Police, may retire such policeman from actual service, and order and 
direct that he be paid from such fund a yearly pension not exceeding 
one-half of the amount of the salary attached to the rank which he may 
have held in said police force at the time of his retirement : Provided, 
however, that the maximum sum of such pension shall not exceed the 
sum of nine hundred dollars ($900) per annum, and the minimum not 
less than six hundred dollars ($600) per annum: Provided, however, 
that whenever such disability shall cease, such pension shall cease, and 
such person shall thereupon be reinstated in the department in the 
rank held by him at the time of his retirement. On the death of any 
person so retired, his widow, provided the marriage of such policeman 
shall have taken place prior to the date of becoming so disabled, or 
natural child or children under the age of sixteen (16) years of such 
deceased pensioner, shall be paid the same pension herein provided for 
such retired husband or father; but nothing herein contained shall 
authorize or warrant payment of any such pension to any such widow 
after she shall have remarried. 

No policeman shall be retired as provided in this section or receive 
any benefit from such fund unless there shall be filed with said board 
certificates of his disability, which shall be subscribed and sworn to by 
the city physician, if there be one, and a practicing physician of such 
city, or by the sworn certificates of such physicians as said board may 
select, and such board may require other evidence of disability before 
ordering such retirement and payment as aforesaid. Any policeman 
retired for disability under this Act may be summoned to submit him- 
self for examination by said board, or by such person or persons as said 
board may select for such purpose, and shall abide the decision and order 
of said board with reference thereto. 

§ 5. Whenever any person who has been appointed and sworn as a 
regular or probationary policeman of such city shall while in, and in 
consequence of, the performance of police duty, lose his life, or shall 
receive injuries from which he shall thereafter die, leaving a widow or 
a natural child or children under the age of sixteen (16) years, then 
upon satisfactory proof being made to it, such board shall order and 
direct that the pensions described in section 3 hereof to be paid to 
widows and children, shall be paid to such widow, or such natural child 
or children, subject to the limitations of said section 3: Provided that 
whenever any such policeman who has voluntarily retired or has beon 
retired under the provisions of this Act shall then marry, such wife or 



CITIES, TOWNS AND VILLAGES. 307 



child or children of such marriage shall not be entitled to any pension 
from the fund provided by this Act. 

Whenever any policeman shall die after ten (10) years' service and 
while still in the service of such city as a policeman, leaving a widow 
whom he married more than two months prior to his demise, or natural 
child or children under the age of sixteen (16) years, then upon satis- 
factory proof of such facts made to it, said board shall order and direct 
that a pension of one-half the salary attached to the rank which he may 
have held in said police force for one year immediately prior to his 
death, not exceeding the sum of nine hundred ($900) dollars, shall be 
paid to such widow, or, if there be no widow, then to such natural child 
or children until they shall be sixteen (16) years of age, such pension 
to cease upon the re-marriage of such widow, as provided above. 

Whenever any policeman shall after ten (10) years' service and 
while still in the service of such city, be legally adjudged insane, and at 
such time shall have a wife or natural child or children under the age 
of sixteen (16) years, said board shall order and direct that a pension 
of one-half the salary, not exceeding the sum of nine hundred dollars 
($900) shall be paid to such wife, or if there be no wife, then to such 
natural child or children, until they shall be sixteen (16) years of age: 
Provided, however, that if at any time it be declared, in manner provided 
by law, that such person is restored to reason, then such pension shall 
cease, and such person shall, in the discretion of such board, be reinstated 
in the department in the rank held by him at the time he was legally 
adjudged to be insane : And provided, further, that such pension shall 
cease if such person shall leave or be taken outside of the State of 
Illinois. 

§ 6. Whenever any policeman who shall have received any benefit 
under this Act shall be convicted of felony, or shall become an habitual 
drunkard, or a non-resident of the United States, or shall fail to submit 
himself for examination as to fitness for duty as provided for in section 
4 hereof, unless excused in writing by the board, or shall disobey the 
requirements of said board in respect to said examination, then said 
board shall order that such pension allowance as may have been granted 
to such policeman shall cease and determine, and such policeman shall 
receive no further pension., allowance or benefit under this Act. 

§ 7. Wheresoever the word "policeman," as used in this Act appears, 
the same shall be interpreted and construed to mean the following: 

Any person who has been appointed and sworn or designated by law 
as a policeman, prior to the taking effect of this Act, and has served in 
a regularly constituted police department as a policeman, or police patrol 
driver and police operator and a member of the police force thereof, 
and contributed to the Police Pension Fund for such time as he has 
been in the services of such police department as a policeman, or police 
patrol driver and police operator. The intention being that all police- 
men, or police patrol drivers and police operators who have so con- 
tributed to the Police Pension Fimd (their widows and children entitled 
thereto) shall be entitled to any of the benefits of any pension law in 
force and effect when this Act, in cities within its terms, shall supersede 
an Act entitled, "An Act to provide for the setting apart, formation and 
disbursement of a Police Pension Fund in cities, villages and incorpo-

subsequently amended. 

§ 8'. The board herein provided for shall hold quarterly meetings 
on the second Tuesday of July, October, January and April of each year, 
and special meetings upon the call of the president of said board. On 
the second Tuesday of July of each year, it shall select one of its 
members who shall act as the president of such board for the period of 
one year, or until such time as his successor is elected and qualified. 
Said board shall, on the same day, also select another of its members 
who shall act as the treasure[r], and also secretary of said board for 
the period of one year, or until such time as his successor is elected and 
qualified. Said board shall issue certificates signed by its president and 
secretary to the policemen entitled thereto of the amount of money 
ordered paid to such policemen from such fund by said board, which 
certificates shall state for what purpose said payment is made. Said 
board shall keep a record of the proceedings of all its meetings, which 
record shall be a public record. Said board shall submit semi-annually 
to the city council of such city a list of beneficiaries entitled to pay- 
ments from the fund herein provided, stating the amount of such 
payments and for what granted, as ordered by such board, which list 
shall be signed and certified by the treasurer and president of such 
board, and attested by such treasurer under oath : Provided, that no 
resolution shall be passed or order made for the payment of money 
unless by affirmative vote of a majority of the members of said board. 
The findings of said board upon all questions of fact relating to the 
administration of said fund shall be conclusive. 

In computing the duration of service of any policeman in the police 
force of any such city, the time during which such policeman may be 
separated from the police force or absent from duty, from any cause 
except on account of a furlough not exceeding thirty days in any year, 
and on account of injuries referred to in section 4 hereof, shall not 
be computed. 

§ 9. Said pension fund shall consist of amounts of two per cent 
per month retained or deducted by the comptroller of such city from the 
salary or wages of each policeman, and such other sums as are herein- 
after referred to. 

Said board shall employ one or more competent actuaries, to be 
selected by the board, whose duty it shall be to determine the amount 
of money necessary to be provided annually for the purpose of : 

(A) Paying pensions granted under the Act superseded by this 
Act.

entitled thereto), members of the police force, prior to January 1st, 
1916; and

of pensions to policemen (their widows and children) becoming mem- 
bers of the police force subsequent to January 1st, 1916.

the first day of November of each year, beginning November 1, 1915. 

The board shall certify to the city council of such city, on or before 
the first day of December, annually beginning December 1, 1915 :

It shall be lawful for any such city to levy a tax of not more than 
seven-tenths of a mill on the dollar for a period of three years begin- 
ning with the year 1915 on all taxable property of such city in such 
sum as will, when added to the deductions from the salary or wages of 
policemen and receipts available from other sources, as hereinbefore 
referred to, amount to sufficient income to meet the actual requirements 
above referred to and designated (A), (B) and (C). Said taxes shall 
be levied and collected in like manner with the general taxes of such 
city and the fund arising therefrom shall be known as "Police Pension 
Fund" ; which said tax shall be in addition to all other taxes which such 
city is now or hereafter may be authorized to levy upon the aggregate

sion of taxes, approved May 9, 1901, in force July 1, 1901," as subse- 
quently amended, shall not consider the tax for said Police Pension 
Fund authorized by this Act as a part of the general tax levy for city 
purposes, and shall not include the same in the limitation of three (3)

extended. 

The city council of such city shall thereafter annually include and 
appropriate from such fund in the appropriation bill such sum or sums 
of money as may be necessary to meet the annual requirements above 
referred to and designated (A), (B) and (C). 

Should any such city levy the tax aforesaid during the year 1916, 
or any year thereafter, in order that there may be sufficient money to 
meet the requirements of this Act during any such year, such city may 
issue and dispose of tax anticipation warrants as provided by law. 

In the event that such city shall during any year fail, neglect or 
refuse to provide for the levy and collection of the aforesaid tax, then 
there shall be set apart annually from the revenue collected or received 
by such city from licenses issued by such city, authorizing persons and 
corporations to engage in any business, profession or occupation within 
the corporate limits of such city, excepting public utilities, a sum which, 
when added to the deductions from the salary or wages of policemen 
above referred to and receipts available from other sources, will amount 
to a sufficient income to meet the annual requirements above referred 
to and designated (A), (B) and (C).
