§ 6. It shall be the duty of the Department of Agriculture to cause 
to be inspected at least once each year betVeen July 1 and September 15, 
all nurseries in the State of Illinois as to whether they are infested by 
insect pests or infested [infected] by diseases. If upon the inspection 
of any nursery as above provided it shall appear that said nursery and 
"its premises are apparently free from insect pests and diseases, it shall 
be the duty of the Department of Agriculture, upon payment of the ex- 
penses of inspection, to give or to send to the owner of said nursery or 
the person in charge of the same, not later than October 1, a certificate 
executed by the Department of Agriculture setting forth the fact of such 
inspection, and said certificate shall be valid not to exceed one year from

within this State without inspection, under a special permit of the De- 
partment of Agriculture, in which case they must be held unused by the 
person receiving them until they have been duly inspected and pro- 
nounced free from insect pests and diseases. 

§ 7. If the Department of Agriculture shall find that part of a 
nursery is infested or infected with insect pests or plant diseases, and 
that the remainder of it is not so infested or infected, or if it shall have 
reason to believe that a nursery is liable, by reason of its proximity to 
infested or infected premises, to become so infested or infected before the 
next annual inspection, it may prescribe in writing such measures or 
precaution, or may make in writing such conditions as to the use of its 
certificate, as may in its judgment be necessary, and it may Avithhold a 
certificate until such conditions have been accepted in writing by the 
owner of said nursery ; and the use of such certificate without taking such 
measures of precaution or observing such conditions shall subject the 
owner of said nursery to the penalties prescribed for a violation of this 
Act. 

§ 8. Every dealer within the meaning of this Act, located either 
within or without the State, engaged in selling nursery stock in this 
State shall secure a dealer's certificate, first furnishing an affidavit that 
he will buy and sell only stock which has been duly inspected and certi- 
fied by the Department of Agriculture; or inspector approved by the

infected with insect pests or diseases, or is being used in connection 
with plants or other property which have not been inspected and certi- 
fied as aforesaid, its further use may be prohibited, subject to such in- 
spection and other disposition of the plants and plant products involved

An Act to protect the oivner of any licensed stallion or jach Tcept for 
public service and to subject the mare or jennet or progeny of sucli 
animal, or both, to a li&n for the service fee of such stallion or jaclc. 
Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, 
represented in the General Assembly: That every owner of any licensed 
stallion or jack kept for public service, who, at the request of the owner 
of any mare or jennet, or his authorized agent, shall cause such mare 
or jennet to be served by his stallion or jack, shall have a lien on the 
mare or jennet served and first lien upon the progeny of such mare or 
jennet for the service fee of such stallion or jack and each lien conferred 
by this Act shall take precedence of all other liens or claims thereon not 
duly recorded prior to recording claim of lien as hereinafter provided. 
§ 2. Any owner of a licensed stallion or jack desiring to secure the 
benefits of this Act, shall within six (6) months after any mare or jen- 
net has been served by his stallion or jack, file with the recorder of 
deeds in the county in which such mare or jennet is, a claim for lien in 
writing and under oath, setting forth therein his intention to claim a 



ANIMALS AND BIRDS. 45 



lien upon such mare or jennet or progeny thereof, or both, for the service 
fee of his stallion or jack. 

Such claim for lien shall state the name and residence of the person 
claiming the lien, the name of the owner or reputed owner of the mare or 
jennet or progeny thereof, or both, sought to be charged with the lien, 
and a description of such animal or animals sufficient for identification 
upon which the lien is claimed, and the amount due the claimant for 
the service fee of his stallion or jack. 

The claim for lien filed with the recorder of deeds shall expire and 
become void and of no effect if suit is not brought to foreclose the same 
within twelve months after the date of such service by such stallion or 
jack. 

§ 3. It shall be the duty of the recorder of deeds, upon presentation 
to him of any such claim for lien, together with the recording fee, to 
file the same in his office in the same manner as provided by laAV for the 
filing and recording of chattel mortgages. 

§ 4. The original, or copy of such claim for lien filed as aforesaid 
certified by the recorder of deeds, shall be received in evidence in any 
proceeding taken to foreclose the lien herein provided for, of the fact 
that such claim for lien was received and filed according to the endorse- 
ment of the recorder of deeds thereon. 

§ 5. The person claiming such lien may commence suit to foreclose 
the same by summons in the usual form before any Justice of the Peace 
of the county or before any municipal court of the city in which the 
animal or animals described in his claim for lien may be found. Such 
suit shall be against the person or persons liable for the payment of the 
service fee of claimant's stallion or jack. 

§ 6. If such summons be returned personally served upon the de- 
fendant or defendants, the same proceeding shall thereupon be had in 
all respects as in other suits commenced by summons in which there is a 
personal service of process and judgment shall be rendered in such suit 
in like manner. 

§ 7. If the officer returns such summons showing that a defendant 
or defendants cannot be found in his county, the same proceedings shall 
thereupon be had in all respects as to the defendant or defendants not 
personally served, as near as may be, as in suits commenced by attach- 
ment in which there is not a personal service of process upon the de- 
fendant and judgment shall be rendered in such suit in like manner. 

§ 8. If the plaintiff recover judgment in such suit, execution shall 
issue thereon in the same manner and with the like effect as upon judg- 
ments rendered in suits commenced by attachment and the mare or 
jennet or progeny thereof, or both, upon which the plaintiff holds such 
lien shall not be exempt from execution, but may be sold to satisfy such 
execution in the manner hereinafter provided. 

§ 9. In all suits prosecuted under the provisions of this Act, the 
court, jury, or Justice of the Peace, who shall try the same, or make an 
assessment of damages therein, shall in addition to finding the sum due 
the plaintiff, also find that the same is due for the service fee of plaintiff's 
stallion or jack and is a lien on the mare or jennet or progeny thereof, or 



46 ANIMALS AND BIRDS. 



both, as described in plaintiff's claim for lien : Provided, however, that 
if the court, jury, or Justice of the Peace shall find the amount due the 
plaintiff is not a lien upon the property described in the plaintiff's claim 
for lien, the plaintiff shall not be non-suited thereby if personal service 
of summons has been had upon the defendant, but shall be entitled to 
judgment as in other civil actions; and in those cases where the amount 
due is found to be a lien upon the animal or animals described in plain- 
tiff's claim for lien, the finding or verdict may be in the following form : 
"The court, jurors, or justices, as the case may be, say that there is due 

to the plaintiff the sum of dollars from the said defendant 

or defendants and that the same is due for the service fee of plaintiff's 
stallion or jack, and that the plaintiff has a lien upon said mare or jennet 
or progeny thereof, or both, as described in plaintiffs claim for lien for 
said amount," and in such case, the fee paid by the claimant to the 
recorder of deeds for filing his claim for lien shall be taxed as part of the 
costs of the suit. 

§ 10. When the said lien shall be duly perfected as above provided, 
the mare or jennet or progeny thereof, or both, as above provided, shall 
be sold under execution to satisfy said lien as follows: The Justice of 
the Peace or court shall, at the time of rendering judgment in the suit 
tried before him and on the day of trial, enter upon his docket an order 
designating the time and place at which such animal or animals, shall be 
sold under the execution. All such sales shall be for cash, at public sale, 
to the highest bidder and shall take place not less than three nor more 
than five days after the entry of the order of sale and shall be made by 
a constable of the county or by a bailiff of the Municipal Court of the city 
in which the sale takes place. The officer making the sale shall advertise 
the time and place of such sale, together with the correct description of 
the mare or jennet or progeny thereof, or both, to be sold, by posting 
written or printed notices of such sale at three of the most public places 
of the township [,] city or village where such mare or jennet or progeny 
thereof, or both, is found. The officer making such sale shall forthwith 
file with the Justice of the Peace or court in whose court the judgment 
was entered a written statement of the amount realized from such sale 
and all proper items of expense in connection therewith and shall then 
pay from the proceeds of such sale, in the order named, to the parties en- 
titled to receive the same all necessary expense incurred in the keep of 
.such animal or animals, all constable's and bailiff's fees, all court costs 
taxed in the suit, the amount of the judgment recovered by the plaintiff 
or claimant and the surplus, if any, he shall pay to tlie defendant in the 
suit or to his legal representative. 

§ 11. All sales of an animal or animals under this Act shall be 
made subject to redemption by the owner of such animal or animals, or 
his legal representatives ; such redemption to be made within thirty days 
from the day of sale by paying to the plaintiff, officer making the sale, 
or to the judge or justice upon whose docket the same was entered, the 
amount of the judgment with interest at the rate of five per cent and all 
costs and expenses taxed in the^ proceeding, together with the reasonable

and necessary expense or cost of the keep of such animal or animals from 
the clay of sale to and including the day of redemption.

State of Illinois, 
BxECUTrvE Department. 
Springfield, June 28, 1917. 
To the Honorable, the House of Representatives: 

I return herewith House BiU No. 1038, entitled, "An Act making an appro- 
priation for the payment of expenses, costs and charges connected with the con- 
trol and the eradication of the foot-and-mouth disease during the years 1914, 
1915 and 1016, and the payment of certain claims for horses that were destroyed 
on account of the contagion of glanders," with my approval, except for the follow- 
ing item which is vetoed: 
Page 4, section 1 : 
In the 4th line from the bottom of the page: 

"National Dairy Show Association $60,667.62." 

I have disapproved of this item with great reluctance. I have given the 
matter full consideration and I do not find that any claim has been allowed on 
account of the foot-and-mouth disease, except in cases where the animals have 
been slaughtered by offlcials of the State. Indirect losses have so far been dis- 
allowed. The indirect losses to the farmers of the State, generally, on account of 
the epidemic of foot-and-mouth disease have doubtless amounted to several 
million dollars. If this claim be approved, the State would be deluged with other 
claims for indirect losses. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Frank O. Lowden, Governor.

Section 1. Be it enacted h^j the People of the State of Illinois, 
represented in the General Assembhj: That all persons having requisite 
legal capacity may by an instrument in writing to be signed by them 
submit to one or more arbitrators to be named in the manner indicated 
by such writing, any controversy existing between them, and may, in 
such submission agree that a judgment of any court competent to have 
jurisdiction of the subject matter of such instrument, shall be rendered 
upon the award made pursuant to such submission. 

§ 3. The parties to such submission may by such submission 
designate the number of such arbitrators, which number may be one or 
more as the parties shall agree; the manner in which they may be 
appointed in the first instance and vacancies caused by the refusal [,] 
incapacity or death of an appointee filled; the time and place of the 
hearing and the rules for the hearing of such controversy, not in con- 
flict with the provisions of this Act ; the parties to such submission 
may include by reference in said written submission the published rules 
of any organization or association which rules shall thereby become a 
part- of the contract of submission. 

§ 3. A submission to arbitration shall, unless a contrary intention 
is expressed therein, be irrevocable. 

§ 4. Said arbitrators or an)^ of them shall have the power to 
administer oaths, subpoena and examine witnesses [,] to issue subpoenas 
duces tecum requiring the production of such books, papers, records and 
documents as may be evidence of any matter under inquiry and to 
examine and inspect the same; service of such subpoena shall be made 
by any sheriff or constable or other person; the fees of witnesses for 
attendance and travel shall be the same as the fees of witnesses before 
the circuit courts of the State ; any court of this State, having juris- 
diction of the subject matter of the submission or any judge thereof 



ARBITRATION AND AWARDS. 303 



upon the application of such arbitrators or any of them, either in term 
time or vacation may compel attendance of witnesses, the production 
of books and papers and giving of testimony before said arbitrators by 
attachment for contempt or otherwise in the same manner as the pro- 
duction of evidence may be compelled before said court. 

§ 5. The said arbitrators may authorize the taking of depositions 
without a commission in the same manner as may be provided by law 
for the taking of depositions in suits pendiug in courts of record of this 
State. 

§ 6. The arbitrators may, of their own motion and shall by request 
of a party 

(a) At any stage of the proceedings submit any question of law 
arising in the course of the reference for the opinion of the court 
stating the facts upon which the question arises and such opinion when 
given shall bind the arbitrators in the making of their award 

(b) State their final award as to the whole or a part of the refer- 
ence in the form of a conclusion of fact for the opinion of the court on 
the questions of law arising and such opinion shall finally conclude the 
proceeding, except as by this Act otherwise provided. 

§ 7. The award of the arbitrators, or a majority of them, shall be 
drawn up in writing and signed by the arbitrators or a majority of 
them; the award shall definitely deal with all matters of difference in 
the submission requiring settlement, but the arbitrators may, in their 
discretion, make a partial award or awards, which shall be enforceable 
in the same manner as the final award ; upon the making of such award, 
the arbitrators shall deliver a true copy thereof to each of the parties 
thereto without delay. 

§ 8. If either of the parties neglect to comply with any partial or 
final award, made by the arbitrators, the other party may, at any time 
within one year from the time of such failure, file such award, together 
with the submission in court. 

§ 9. The party filing such award may, by giving ten days' notice 
of his intention to the opposite party, and if no legal exceptions are 
taken to such award, have judgment thereon, as on the verdict of a 
jury; upon any legal exceptions taken, the findings of fact by the 
arbitrators shall be conclusive; successive judgments in the same case 
may be entered on successive awards of the arbitrators on the subject 
matter of the submission together with the costs of arbitration and the 
court, and execution may issue as in other cases. 

§ 10. When the award requires the performance of any act other 
than the payment of money, the court rendering such judgment shall 
enforce the same by rule, and the party refusing or neglecting to comply 
with such rule may be proceeded against by attachment or otherwise as 
for a contempt. 

§ 11. If any legal defects shall appear in the award or other pro- 
ceedings, or if it shall appear that the award is not sustainable under 
the opinions of the court upon questions of law under section 6 of this 
Act, the court may set aside such award, or remit the matters contained 
in the said award to the reconsideration of the said arbitrators; or, if it 



204 ARBITRATION AND AWARDS. 



shall appear, on oath or affirmation that said award was obtained by 
fraud, corruption or other undue means, or that such arbitrators misbe- 
haved, said court may set aside such award. 

§ 12. If there be any evident miscalculation or misdescription, or 
if the arbitrators shall appear to have awarded upon matters not sub- 
mitted to them, not affecting the merits of the decision upon the matters 
submitted, or where the award shall be imperfect in some matters of 
form, not affecting the merits of the controversy, and where such errors 
and defects, if in a verdict, could have been lawfully amended or disre- 
garded by the court, any party aggrieved may move the court to modify 
or correct such award. 

§ 13. Applications to set aside, modify or amend or remit such 
award, as provided in the sections 11 and 12 of this Act, must be made 
before the entry of final judgment on such award: Provided, nothing 
herein contained shall be so construed as to deprive courts of chancery 
of their jurisdiction, as in other cases. 

§ 14. Writs of error and appeals may be taken from any decision 
of the court upon questions of law under section 6 of this Act, or 
matters arising in the the course of the proceedings, b}^ the party feeling 
himself aggrieved, as in other cases; and if the case shall be upon such 
writ of error or appeal remanded, such further proceedings shall be had 
as the nature of the case may require. 

§ 15. The parties may, in the submission, agree upon the amount 
of compensation to be paid to the arbitrators and the terms of the 
payment of the same; unless so agreed, each arbitrator shall be allowed, 
for every day's attendance to the business of his appointment $3.00, 
to be paid in the first instance by the party in whose favor the award 
shall be made, but to be recovered of the other party with the other costs 
of suit, if the award or final decision shall entitle the prevailing party 
to recover costs. Sheriffs, constables, the bailiff of the Municipal Court 
of Chicago, clerks and justices of the peace shall be entitled to the same 
fees for services performed in relation to any arbitration, as shall be 
allowed by law for the like services in their respective courts. 

§ 16. Arbitrators may be compelled, by order of the court to pro- 
ceed to a hearing of the submission and to make report without unnec- 
essary delay. 

§ 17. In this Act unless the context or subject matter otherwise 
requires, "Court" means the court named in the submission, and if no 
court be named, any court having jurisdiction of the subject matter, to 
which application is made or proceedings had on a submission. 

"Submission" means a written agreement to submit differences to 
arbitration, whether such differences be in whole or in part in suit or 
not in suit. 

§ 18. Eepeal.] An Act to revise the law in relation to arbitrations 
and awards, approved April 29, 1873, in force July 1, 1873, except as 
herein re-enacted, is hereby repealed, but this section shall not be con-

by a name so similar to the name of any other corporation then operat- 
ing under the laws of this State, or of any law of the United States or 
of any person, firm, partnership or corporation then conducting a bank- 
ing business as in the opinion of the Auditor of Public Accounts will 
create confusion, provided that a permit may be issued hereunder to a 
corporation by a name the same as or similar to the name of any person, 
firm or partnership then conducting a banking business, by and with the 
written consent of such person, firm or partnership of the same or similar

or willingly permit to be violated any of the provisions of this Act ; and 
that he is the owner in good faith and in his own right of the number of 
shares of stock required by this Act; and that same is not hypothecated 
or in any way pledged as security for any loan or debt. Such oath 
subscribed by the director making it and certified by a proper officer 
authorized to administer oaths shall be immediately transmitted to the 
Auditor and shall be filed and preserved by him in his office. The direc- 
tors shall cause to be kept suitable books of record of all the transactions 
of the bank or association and shall furnish to the Auditor lists of the 
stockholders and copies of any other records the Auditor may require. 
And there shall be an annual meeting of the stockholders for the elec- 
tion of directors each year on the first Monday in January unless some 
other date shall be fixed by the by-laws of the association. Any omis- 
sion to elect directors shall not impair any of the rights and privileges 
of the association or of any person in any way interested, but the existing 
directors shall hold office until their successors are elected and qualified 
as in such cases may be by law provided. Vacancies may be filled by a 
two-thirds vote of the remaining directors.

the capital below the provisions of this section; and if the capital stock 
of said bank shall remain impaired for thirty days after notice by the 
Auditor, he shall have power, and it is hereby made his duty, to enter 
suit against each stockholder in the name of the People of the State of

such impairment, and when collected shall pay over the amount thereof 
to said bank, and the judgment in such case shall be for the amount 
claimed with all costs and reasonable attorney's fees, which fees shall be 
fixed by the court, or, it it [if] appears from the reports made to the 
Auditor under this Act, or from any examination made by or on behalf of 
the Auditor that the conditions of any bank organized under this Act are 
such that the impairment of the capital stock cannot be made good, or 
that the business of any such bank is being conducted in an illegal, 
fraudulent or unsafe manner, he may, in his disci etion, without having 
taken the steps provided in this section to make good the impaired capital 
stock, forthwith appoint a receiver, and require of him such bond and 
security as he deems proper. Such receiver, under the direction of the 
Auditor, shall take possession of the books, records and assets of every 
description of such bank, collect all debts, dues and claims belonging to 
it, and upon the order of a court of record of competent jurisdiction, 
may sell or compound all bad or doubtful debts, and, on a like order, may

court shall direct; and vaaj, if necessary to pay the debts of such bank, 
enforce the individual liability of the stockholders.

cause notice to be given, by advertisement in such newspapers as he may 
direct, for three consecutive months, calling on all persons who may have 
claims against such bank to present the same, and to make legal proof 
thereof. 

From time to time the Auditor of Public Accounts shall make a 
ratable dividend of the moneys collected by such receiver on all such 
claims as may have been proved to his satisfaction or adjudicated in a 
court of competent jurisdiction, and, as the proceeds of the assets of such 
bank are collected, shall make further dividends on all claims previously 
proved or adjudicated; and the remainder of the proceeds, if any, shall 
be paid over to the shareholders of such bank, or their legal representa- 
tives, in proportion to the stock by them respectively held. 

Whenever any such bank against which proceedings have been insti- 
tuted, or for which a receiver has been appointed as aforesaid, on account 
of any alleged impairment of its capital stock or alleged conduct of its 
business in an illegal, fraudulent or unsafe manner, denies such grounds, 
it may, at any time within ten days, apply to the Circuit Court of Sanga- 



BANKS. 213 



mon County, Illinois, to enjoin further proceedings in the premises ; and 
such court, after citing the Auditor of Public Accounts to show cause 
why further proceedings should not be enjoined, and after the decision 
of the court or finding of a jury that such grounds. do not exist, shall 
make an order enjoining the Auditor, and any receiver acting under his 
direction, from all further proceedings on account of such alleged 
grounds. 

All expenses of any preliminary or other examinations into the con- 
dition of any such bank shall be paid by such bank. All expenses of any 
such receivership, including reasonable receiver's, solicitor's and attor- 
ney's fees to be approved by the Auditor of Public Accounts, shall be 
paid out of the assets of such bank.

the dissolution or for the winding up of the affairs or for the appoint-

tion or upon the ground that such bank is being conducted in an illegal, 
fraudulent or unsafe manner, except in the name and by the authority 
of the Auditor of Public Accounts, represented by the Attorney General. 

At any time, whenever a majority in number and amount of the 
creditors of any such bank or association, after any such receiver shall 
have been appointed, shall petition the Auditor of Public Accounts for 
the appointment of any person nominated by them as receiver, who is a 
reputable person and elector of the county in which such bank or associa- 
tion is located, it shall be the duty of the Auditor to make such appoint- 
ment, and all the rights and duties of his predecessor shall at once 
devolve upon such appointee. 

§ 12. Whenever the board of directors, managers or trustees of 
any corporation having any banking powers existing by virtue of any 
general or special law of this State, or any corporation with banking 
powers hereafter organized under the provisions of this Act, may desire 
to change the name, to change the place of business, to increase or 
decrease the capital stock, to extend the duration of its charter, to 
increase or decrease the number of directors, managers or trustees, or to 
consolidate such corporation with any other corporation having banking

stockholders of such corporation for the purpose of submitting to a vote 
of such stockholders the question of such change of name, change of 
place of business, increase or decrease of number of directors, managers 
or trustees, increase or decrease of capital stock, extension of duration of 
its charter, or consolidation with some other corporation, as the case 
may be : Provided, that in changing the name of any corporation under 
the provisions hereof, no name shall be assumed or adopted by any cor- 
poration organized under the laws of this State without the consent of 
such other corporation, and that in no case shall the capital stock be 
diminished to the prejudice of the creditors of such corporation, or the 
number of directors, managers or trustees be reduced to less than three 
or increased to more than twenty-one.

place and object of such meeting. A general notice of the time, place 
and object of such meeting shall also be published for three successive 
weeks in some newspaper printed in or nearest to the county in which the 
principal business office of said corporation is located. At any such 
meeting stockholders may vote in person or by proxy, each stockholder 
being entitled to one vote for each share of stock held by him, and votes 
representing two-thirds of all the stock of the corporation shall be neces- 
sary for the adoption of the proposed change of name, place of business, 
number of directors, managers or trustees, amount of capital stock, 
extension of duration of charter, or consolidation with some other com- 
pany. At any regular meeting, or at the time and place specified in said 
notice of a special meeting called for that purpose, said propositions, or 
any of them, may be submitted to a vote, and if it shall appear that two- 
thirds of all the votes represented by the whole stock of such corporation 
are in favor of the propositions or any of them, so submitted, a certificate 
thereof, verified by the affidavit of the president, and under seal of the 
corporation, shall be filed in the office of the Auditor, and a like certificate

declared accomplished, in accordance with the said vote of the stock- 
holders : And, provided^ further, that any corporation with banking 
powers availing itself of or accepting the benefits of, or formed under,

any special charter or general law of this State, shall be subject to the 
provisions and requirements of this Act in every particular, as if organ- 
ized under this Act. 

Such corporation shall, upon the filing of said certificate, cause to 
be published in some newspaper in or nearest the county in which their 
principal office is located, a notice of such changes of organization for 
three successive weeks.

capital stock, increase or decrease of number of directors, managers or 
trustees, extension of duration of charter, or consolidation of one corpo- 
ration with another, shall not affect suits pending in which such corpora- 
tions or corporation shall be parties ; nor shall such changes afi;ect causes

brought against such corporation by its former name be abated for that 
cause.

An Act to amend sections 23, 30, 31 and 49 of an Act entitled, "An Act 
concerning local improvements," approved June llf, 1891 , in force July 
1, 1897, as subsequently amended. 

Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, 
represented in the General Assembly: That sections 23, 30, 31 and 49 
of an Act entitled "An Act concerning local improvements," approved 
June 14, 1897, in force July 1, 1897, as subsequently amended, be and 
they are hereby amended and made to read as follows : 

§ 23. Upon the return of said summons, or as soon thereafter as 
the business of the court will permit, the court shall proceed to a hearing 
of the said cause, and shall impanel a jury to ascertain the just compensa- 
tion to be paid to all such owners of property to be taken or damaged; 
and if objections shall be tiled to the confirmation of the assessment of 
benefits, such objections shall be submitted to the same jury at the same 
time; and thereupon such jury shall ascertain the just compensation to 
be paid to the owner of each lot, block, tract or parcel of land to be taken 
or damaged in said proceeding, and shall also determine whether or not 
any lot, piece or parcel of land assessed in said proceeding, for which 
objections have been filed, has been assessed more than it will be benefited 
by said improvement, and on such hearing the commissioners' report so 
returned and filed as aforesaid, shall be prima facie evidence, both of 
the amount of the compensation to be awarded, and of the benefits to be 
assessed, and either party may introduce such other evidence as may bear 
upon the said issue or issues." 

"§ 30. Any final judgment or judgments, rendered by said court, 
upon any finding or findings of any jury or juries or of any judge, or 
judges where trial by jury is waived by the parties concerned, shall be a 
lawful and sufficient condemnation of the land or property to be taken, 
upon the payment of the net amount of such finding, as hereinafter pro- 
vided. It shall be final and conclusive as to the damages and benefits 
caused by such improvement, unless such judgment or judgments shall 
be appealed from; but no appeal or writ of error upon the same shall 
delay proceedings under said ordinance, if the petitioner shall file in the 



CITIES AND VILLAGES. 247 



case its written election to proceed with the improvement notwithstand- 
ing such appeal or writ or error and shall deposit, as directed by the 
court, the amount of judgment and costs, after deducting the benefits 
assessed and adjudged against such property, if any. If the petitioner 
so elects to make such deposit prior to the final determination of any 
appeal or writ of error, it shall thereby become liable to pay to the owner 
or owners of and parties interested in the property in question, the 
difference if any between the amount so deposited and the amount ulti- 
mately adjudged to be the just compensation to be paid on account of 
such property, and interest on any such difference at the rate of five 
(5) per cent per annum from the date of the making of such deposit, 
and costs." 

''§ 31. The court, upon proof that the amount of said just com- 
pensation, so found by the jury or by the court in case a trial by jury is 
waived by the parties concerned, (in excess of the benefits so assessed 
and adjudged against the same property), has been paid to the person 
entitled thereto, or has been deposited as directed by the court, shall 
enter an order that the petitioner shall have the right, at any time there- 
after, to take possession of or damage the property, in respect to which 
compensation shall have been so paid or deposited as aforesaid. Such 
order shall not be appealable as a separate order, if the same be entered 
in time to be made a part of the record on appeal or writ of error from 
the judgment, or before the cause is taken under advisement upon hear- 
ing by the Supreme Court, but may be reviewed upon appeal or writ of 
error from the judgment. 

"§ 49. If it be objected on the part of any property assessed for 
such improvement, that it will not be benefited thereby to the amount 
assessed thereon, and that it is assessed more than its proportionate 
share of the cost of such improvement, and a jury be not waived hy 
agreement of parties, the court shall impanel a jury to try the said 
issue, and in such case, unless otherwise ordered by the court, all such 
objections shall be tried and disposed of before a single jury. The 
assessment roll, as returned by the officer making the same, or as revised 
and corrected by the court on the hearing of the legal objections, shall 
be prima facie evidence of the correctness of the amount assessed against 
each objecting owner but shall not be counted as the testimony of any 
witness or witnesses in the cause. Such assessment roll may be submitted 
to the jury and may be taken into the jury room by the jury when it 
retires to deliberate on its verdict. Either party may introduce such 
other evidence as may bear upon the said issue or issues. The hearing 
shall be conducted as in other cases at law, and if it shall appear that 
the premises of any objector are assessed more than they will be benefited 
by the said improvement or more than its proportionate share of the cost 
of such improvement, the jury shall so find, and shall also find the 
amount for which such premises ought to be assessed, and judgment 
shall be rendered accordingly. 

§ 2. Said sections 23, 30, 31 and 49 as amended by this Act shall 
apply to all proceedings brought under said Act entitled ''An Act con- 
cerning local improvements," which may be pending when this Act

concerning local improvements,'' approved June IJf, 1897, and in force

Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, 
represented in the General Assembly : That sections 14, 92, 93 and 94 
of an Act entitled "An Act concerning local improvements/' approved 
June 14, 1897, in force July 1, 1897, as subsequently amended, be and 
the same are hereby amended, said sections as amended to read as 
follows : 

§ 14. Contents of petition — commissioners.] Such petition 
shall contain a reasonably accurate description of lots, blocks, tracts and 
parcels of land which shall be taken or damaged. There shall be filed 
with or attached to such petition a copy of said ordinance, certified by 
the clerk, under the corporate seal, but the failure to file such copy shall 
not affect the jurisdiction of the court to proceed in said cause, and to 
act upon said petition; but if it shall appear in any such cause that a 
copy of the ordinance has not been attached to or filed with said petition 
before the report of the commissioners shall be filed, as provided in sec- 
tion 15, then, upon motion of any person whose real estate is to be taken, 
or to be assessed, the entire petition and proceedings shall be dismissed. 
Upon the filing of the petition the court shall enter an order designating 
two competent persons as commissioners, to act with the superintendent 
of special assessments (where such officer is provided for by this Act 
and in other cases the president of said board of local improvements) 
who shall investigate and report to the court the just compensation to 
be made to the respective owners of private property which shall be taken 
or damaged for the said improvement, and also what real estate will be 
benefited by such improvement, and the amount of such benefits to each 
parcel. Neither shall be employees of the petitioning municipality and 
both shall be disinterested persons. They shall be allowed a fee for their 
services which shall be fixed by the court in advance, and the amounts 
so allowed may be reviewed by the court upon motion, and may be taxed 
as costs and included in the amount to be assessed, provided, however, 
that in cities of this State having a population of one hundred thousand 
(100,000) or more by the last preceding census of the United States or 
of this State, the fee of said commissioners shall be paid by the city out 
of its general fund, except that the fees of said commissioners may be 
included among the expenses to be defrayed out of the sum not to exceed 
five per centum of the amount of the assessment, for which provision is

made in section 94 as herein amended. Said three commissioners shall 
be duly sworn to make a true and just assessment of the cost of said 
improvement according to law. The concurrence of any two in a report 
shall be sufficient. 

§ 93. Interest on bonds — how to be paid.] The board of local 
improvements before the crediting of the excess as provided for in sec- 
tion eighty-four, as herein amended, shall determine an estimated 
amount deemed sufficient to make up any probable deficiency of interest, 
by which from any cause, collections of interest may prove insufficient to 
meet the interest to be paid on said bonds until they mature as herein- 
before provided. Said estimate shall be deducted out of said installments 
as an item of expense before crediting rebates of excess as herein directed 
and shall be used for no other purpose than to make up such deficiency 
until the bonds are fully paid, both principal and interest. Any balance 
remaining of said estimate after the principal and interest of said bonds 
are fully paid may be used to reimburse the corporate funds for any 
advances made from said funds on account of costs of the special assess- 
ment or special tax or any other expenses of the improvement for which 
said special assessment or siDCcial tax is levied. Provided, however, that 
in cities, towns or villages of this State having a population of one 
hundred thousand or more by the last preceding census of the United 
States or of this State, no deduction of said estimate out of said install- 
ments shall be made where said ordinance providing for the assessment 
provided that a certain sum not to exceed five per centum of the amount 
of such special assessment or special tax shall be applied as herein 
provided in sections 93 and 94, or in case such city, town or village shall 
at any time before the crediting of such excess annually appropriate or 
set aside a fund or funds sufficient in amount to meet any and all 
estimated deficiencies in interest which may arise during the year for 
which said fund is provided. 

§ 93. If, upon final settlement with the contractor for any improve- 
ment and f\ill payment of all vouchers or bonds, issued on account of 
such contract, there shall be any surplus remaining in such special 
assessment or special tax above the payments aforesaid and above the 
amount necessary for the payment of interest on such vouchers or bonds 
as above provided, it shall be the duty of the proper authorities of such 
city, incorporated town or village to at once cause a rebate to be declared 
upon each lot, block, tract or parcel of land, assessed of its pro rata 
proportion of such surplus. The board of local improvements shall cause 
to be kept and exhibited publicly in its office, an index of all warrants 
upon which rebates are due and payable and upon proper proofs, the 
same shall be repaid to the person entitled thereto: Provided,, however, 
whenever any city, town or village of this State, having a population of 
one hundred thousand or more inhabitants by the last preceding census 
of the United States or of this State, shall have appropriated or set aside 
a fund or funds sufficient in amount to meet any and all estimated 
deficiencies in interest, cost of making, levying and collecting special 
assessments or special tax, and of letting and executing contracts, 
advertising, clerical hire, engineering and inspection, court costs and

fees of commissioners in condemnation proceedings incurred in such 
proceedings and shall have, in and by the ordinance providing for the 
assessment, provided, that a certain sum not to exceed 5 per centum 
of the amount of such assessment or special tax shall be applied toward 
the payment of the aforesaid and other costs of making and collecting 
such assessment, the moneys collected in the fund created by such 5 per 
centum so added as hereinabove authorized shall be used to pay all 
deficiency in interest in the warrant, and the balance shall be used to 
reimburse the corporate funds for any advances made from said funds 
on account of costs of the special assessment or special tax or any other 
expenses of the improvement for which such special assessment or special 
tax is levied. 

§ 94. Expenses, costs, etc., how to be paid.] The costs and 
expenses of maintaining the board of local improvements herein author- 
ized, of paying salaries of the members of said board, and the expense of 
making and levying special assessments or special taxes and of letting 
and executing contracts; and also the entire cost and expense attending 
the making and return of the assessment rolls and the necessary esti- 
mates, examinations, advertisements, etc., connected with the proceedings 
herein provided for, including the court costs, including the fees to com- 
missioners in condemnation proceedings, which are to be taxed as above 
provided, shall be paid by the city, village or town out of its general 
fund : Provided, lioioever, that in cities, towns or villages of this State 
having a population of less than one hundred thousand by the last 
preceding census of the United States, or of this State, the city, village 
or town, as the case may be, may in and by the ordinance providing for 
the assessment prescribed, provide that a certain sum, not to exceed 6 
per centum of the amount of such assessment, shall be applied toward 
the payment of the aforesaid and other costs of making and collecting 
such assessment.

having a population of one hundred thousand or more inhabitants by 
the last preceding census of the United States, or of this State, the city, 
village or town, as the case may be, may in and by the ordinance pro- 
viding for the assessment prescribed, provide that a certain sum not to 
exceed 5 per centum of the amount of such assessment, as finally deter- 
mined after the completion of the improvement in accordance with 
section 84 of this Act, shall be applied (but only by w^ay of reimburse- 
ment of the general corporate fund as hereinafter in this section 
provided) toward the payment of the cost of making, levying and col- 
lecting such special assessment or special tax, and of letting and execut- 
ing contracts, advertising, clerical hire, engineering and inspection, 
court costs and fees of commissioners in condemnation proceedings 
incurred in such proceedings and deficiency in interest in the matter

accordance wdth said section 84, but shall not exceed five per centum of 
the assessment as originally levied and filed in court, such excess shall

not constitute any objection to a judgment of confirmation of the assess- 
ment, but no larger sum on account of the expenses specified in this 
paragraph than five per centum of the assessment as finally determined 
in accordance with said section 84, shall be deemed or treated as a part 
of the cost of the improvement to be certified by the board of local 
improvements in accordance with said section 84, and if the part of 
the assessment originally levied on account of the expenses specified in 
this paragraph shall exceed five per centum of the entire assessment as 
finally determined in accordance with said section, any such excess shall 
be deemed a part of the excess to be abated in accordance with the 
provisions of said section 84. 

Provided, further, that such deficiency in interest, if any shall be 
first paid out of the fund so created by such 5 per centum so added as 
herein above authorized, and that the application of said fund toward 
the pa}'ment of the expenses specified in the preceding paragraph, shall 
be only by paying over and transferring the balance of said fund after 
the pa3Tiient of such deficiency in interest, to the general corporate fund 
of said city, town or village for reimbursement for expenses of the 
improvement for Avhich the assessment is levied, theretofore paid out of

village or town : Provided, however, that the provisions of this Act shall 
not apply to probationary employees, nor to employees who are less than 
twenty-one years of age, nor to those defined as sixty-day employees by 
said Act, nor to any employee who is sixty or more years of age at the 
time this Act is in force and effect and who at said time has not been

to the board of trustees of said fund of his desire to participate in the 
benefits hereunder. 

Said fund shall consist of amounts of two dollars and fifty cents a 
month retained or deducted by the comptroller of such city, village, or 
town from the salaries or wages of each employee and such other sums 
as are hereinafter referred to : Provided, however, that if the name of

amounts paid to the treasurer of such city, village or town by the afore- 
said employees for the benefit of the fund hereby created, as prescribed 
in this section, during the preceding fiscal year; and thereafter, begin- 
ning with the year 1918, such cities, villages and towns shall set apart

year. 

Such sums so set apart by such cities, villages and towns shall be 
paid by the official or officials of such cities, villages and towns to the 
treasurer of the pension fund hereby created, on or before the third 
Tuesday in August of each year. 

In lieu of setting apart the aforesaid sums, any such city, village 
or town may levy a tax for the purpose of providing revenue for the 
pension fund hereby created, and for that purpose it shall be lawful for 
any such city, village or town to levy a tax on all taxable property of 
such city, village or town in such amount as will produce the sum of 
money equal to twice that deducted from the salaries or wages of the 
aforesaid employees and twice that paid to the treasurer of such city, 
village or town by the aforesaid employees for the benefit of the pension 
fund created by this Act, as prescribed in this section, during the pre- 
ceding fiscal year. Said tax (which shall in no event exceed five-tenths 
of a mill on the dollar) shall be levied and collected in like manner with 
the general taxes of such city, village or town, which said tax shall be in

levies under the provisions of an Act entitled, "An Act concerning the 
levy and extension of taxes," approved May 9, 1901, in force July 1, 
1901, as subsequently amended, shall not consider the tax for the pen- 
sion fund created by this Act as a part of the general tax levy for such 
city, village or town purposes, and shall not include the same in the 
limitation of three (3) per cent, of the assessed valuation upon which 
taxes are required to be extended. All moneys derived from the tax so 
levied shall be set apart by the official or officials of such city, village or 
town to whom same shall be paid as a fund for pensioning the employees 
hereinbefore described of such city, village or town, and shall be paid 
to the treasurer of the pension fund created by this Act as soon as said 
moneys are received by said official or officials. Should there be insuf- 
ficient funds to meet the requirements of this Act during any year, such 
city, village or town may issue and dispose of tax anticipation warrants 
as provided by laAv against the tax levy for the current fiscal year. 

If the sum derived from the tax levied as aforesaid should exceed 
twice that deducted from the salaries or wages of the aforesaid employees 
and twice that paid to the treasurer of such city, village or town by the 
aforesaid employees for the benefit of said fund, as prescribed in this 
section, and applied to this fund during the preceding fiscal 3'ear, the 
sum to be paid into the fund during the next succeeding year shall be 
reduced by the amount of such excess. If ihe sum derived from the said 
tax levied as aforesaid should be less than the aforesaid sum of twice 
that deducted from the salaries or wages of the aforesaid employees and 
twice that paid to the treasurer of such city, village or town by the 
aforesaid employees for the benefit of the fund, as prescribed in this 



CITIES AND VILLAGES. 371 



section, during the preceding fiscal year, the amount of such deficit shall 
be included in the tax levy for the ensuing year.

ceived from licenses, or resulting from the levy and collection of the 
tax hereinbefore provided for, said official or officials shall make a 
sworn statement to the board of trustees of said pension fund and to the 
mayor of such city or cities, or the president of the board of trustees of 
such villages and towns of all moneys received and paid out by such 
official or officials on account of said pension fund during the year, and 
any such official or officials shall at any and all times, upon demand by 
said pension board, furnish to said board a statement or information of 
any kind relative to said official's or official's method of collecting or 
handling of said pension funds, and all books and records of such official 
or officials shall be produced at any time by said official or officials for 
examination and inspection by said board of pension trustees, for the 
purposes herein provided.

city, village or town, and three employees elected as hereinafter pro- 
vided, who shall be residents of such city, village or town shall be and

city, village or town, to perform the duties of the office of trustee of said 
fund in compliance with the terms of this Act, and shall thereupon 
assume the duties of said office.

tween the second Monday in September and the second Monday in 
October of each year, under rules and regulations prescribed by the 
board of trustees. The ballot shall be secret in character, and the person

diately prior to the time of his retirement from the police force : Pro- 
vided, however, that the maximum sum for such pension shall not

ment or for a pension as in this Act provided; the intention being thai 
the terms and conditions of retirement and of the granting of pensions 
for such policemen under this section shall be retroactive in their effect, 
and shall relate to all applicants for pensions after the date aforesaid.

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 child or children under the age of eighteen (IS) years of

which he shall be legally declared to be insane) or child or children under 
the age of eighteen (18) years, then, upon satisfactory proof of such facts 
made to it, said board shall order and direct that a monthly pension of 
a sum produced by multiplying the number of years of service (including

ever, that such pension shall not exceed fifty ($50.00) dollars per month.

drunkard or a non-resident of the United States, or whenever any 
policeman shall fail to submit himself for examination as to fitness for

allowa]]ce from any such city under or in pursuance of the law known 
a.- the Workm.en's Compensation Act or any other similar Act, the pen- 
sions herein provided for shall be reduced by the amounts so received 
by such policeman or his heirs, it' such compensation or allowance be

Act become operative, shall be paid to and become the property of said 
board of trustees hereby created for the uses and purposes herein set 
forth : And, provided, further, that all legal proceedings instituted by, 
or in the name of, or against said board, shall be continued without 
abatement either in the name of said board or in the name by which 
they are instituted and concluded. 

Said board shall submit a report, at least once each year, to the 
Superintendent of Insurance of this State, and the said Superintendent 
of Insurance shall prescribe the form of such reports, the matter which 
they shall contain, and the time when they shall be submitted, and said

charter, then, upon payment to the Secretary of State of the sum of $50

charter shall be restored. Otherwise, a decree of dissolution shall be 
entered against said corporation by an appropriate judgment of the court

corporations to do business in the State of Illinois. 

And such licensee shall pay a fee for each of such examinations of 
not to exceed five dollars for each day or fraction thereof, plus the

named in the license, a written notice of his intention so to do, and 
shall assign therein any one or more of the grounds enumerated in sec- 
tion 10, with a particular specification thereof. The Secretary of State 
shall thereupon consider whatever representations or evidence the licensee 
shall offer in opposition to such proposed revocation or refusal to renew 
such license.

be denied a license, or whose license shall be revoked, -or to whom a 
renewal of license previously issued shall be denied, may file within 
thirty days threafter, in the Circuit Court of Sangamon County, Illinois, 
a petition against the Secretary of State, officially, as defendant, alleging 
therein, under oath and in brief detail, the plaintiff's qualifications to be 
licensed, and praying for a reversal of the official action complained of. 
Upon entry of appearance by, or service of summons upon, said defendant 
as in civil actions, he shall iile an answer, but not upon oath, in which 
he shall allege by way of defense, the grounds previously assigned and 
specified in his notice to such licensee. All allegations of the answer 
shall be deemed to stand denied without further pleading, and upon 
application of either party the cause shall be advanced and heard without 
delay. Merely technically irregularities in the procedure of the Secre- 
tary of State shall be disregarded, and the burden shall rest upon the 
plaintiff to disprove the grounds assigned and specified for the official 
action complained of. The court's decision shall consult only the rights 
of the plaintiff and protection to the public, and shall be final, but its 
judgment against the plaintiff shall not bar a new application by such 
plaintiff to the Secretary of State for a license under this Act, nor shall 
its judgment in favor of the plaintiff prevent the Secretary of State 
from thereafter revoking such plaintiff's license for any cause which may 
thereafter accrue or be discovered.

include, unless the Secretary of State shall dispense with the filing of 
some part thereof :

the date of filing such balance sheet;

business for that length of time, otherwise as may be required by the' 
Secretary of State, ending not earlier than the date of the balance. sheet 
mentioned in clause "a" of this section. 

c. Copies of the bonds or other securities of the issuer proposed to 
be sold or offered for sale. 

The Secretary of State may require said balance sheet or income 
statement, or both, to be authenticated by a certified public accountant 
of this State, or of any other state or county, where the issuer's business 
is located, and wherein such accountants are qualified by law substaji- 
tially as in this State. He may also, whenever he shall deem it neces- 
sary, require said balance sheet or income statement, or both, to be made

to date, and require the following additional information, or any part

ing to the corporate, co-partnership, or other mode of organization of 
the issuer of the property proposed to be disposed of, and a transcript 
of the record or minutes of all proceedings by the issuer concerning the 
issue of such property. The Secretary of State may cause an appraisal 
to be made at the expense of the dealer of the property of the issuer of 
the securities, including the value of patents, good will, promotion, and 
intangible assets, or may accept the appraisal made by any other duly 
authorized officer or commission, and may fix the amount of stocks, 
bonds, and securities that shall be issued by any corporation, foreign or 
domestic, in payment for property, patents, good will, promotion and 
intangible assets at the value he shall find the same to be worth, and 
may require that such stocks and securities so issued for such property, 
patents, good will, promotion and intangible assets at the value he shall 
find the same to be worth, and may require that such stocks and securi- 
ties so issued for such property, patents, good will, promotion, and in- 
tangible assets shall be deposited in escrow under such terms as the 
Secretary of State may prescribe. The liceusee shall forbear to dispose 
of any property, contemplated by any lawful requirements of the Secre- 
tary of State before compliance therewith, xlll instruments, documents 
and exhibits, excepting properly certified documents, shall be verified 
by the oath of the proper official or person duly authorized, in manner 
and form required by the Secretary of State. There shall be paid to the 
Secretary of State a fee of $5 for filing the papers requin^ed to be filed 
under this section.

association, or corporation, either as principal or agent, to transact any 
business in form or character similar to that set forth in this Act, and 
not exempt from its operation, until it shall have filed the papers and 
documents herein provided for. It shall be the duty of the Secretary of 
State to examine the statements and documents in his office relating to 
each issue of stocks, bonds and securities, and the reports of any inves- 
tigation made under his direction, and if he finds that the proposed 
contracts, stocks, bonds, or other securities are fraudulent or that the 
sale of same in his opinion would work a fraud upon the purchaser, then 
he shall disapprove the sale of such contracts, stocks, bonds, or securities, 
and shall notify the dealer by registered mail. 

§ 15. Every foreign dealer, whether a corporation, co-partnership, 
association, company, and whether incorporated or unincorporated, and 
any individual, not herein specifically exempt, and all those whose securi- 
ties are to be marketed, shall also file with the i^apers and documents 
specified and required in this Act, written irrevocable consents that suits 
of law or in equity may be commenced against each of them in any

action may have arisen, by the services, of process upon the said Secre- 
tary of State, and therein stipulate and agree that such service of process

dealer, authenticated by its corporate seal; or if unincorporated, then 
by such person or persons as are authorized to execute similar docu- 
ments, and shall be accompanied by a duly certified copy of the order 
or resolution of the board of directors, trustees, or managers of each 
such dealer authorizing the execution of such consent in its behalf.

retary of State and a copy thereof shall first have been filed with the 
Secretary of State, nor after such dealer has been notified of objection 
thereto by said officer.

the shares represented thereby shall be transferable only on the books 
of the corporation or shall be registered by a registrar or transferred 
by a transfer agent. 

§ 2. Nothing in this Act shall be construed as enlarging the 
powers of an infant or other person lacking full legal capacity, or of a 
trustee, executor or administrator, or other fiduciary, to make a valid 
indorsement, assignment or power of attorney. 

§ 3. Nothing in this Act shall be construed as forbidding a cor- 
poration

books as the OAvner of shares to receive dividends, and to vote as such 
owner, or 

(b) To hold liable for calls and assessments a person registered 
on its books as the owner of shares. 

§ 4. The title of a transferee of a certificate under a power of 
attorney or assignment not written upon the certificate, and the title of

to be the owner thereof, or shall purchase and obtain delivery of such 
certificate and the written assignment or power of attorney of such 
person, though contained in a separate docmnent. 

§ 5. The delivery of a certificate to transfer title in accordance

the whole of the same shares of stock, a subsequent transfer of such 
certificate by the transferee, mediately or immediately, to a nur chaser

cate and the shares represented thereby. 

§ 9. The delivery of a certificate by the person appearing by the 
certificate to be the owner thereof without the indorsement requisite 
for the transfer of the certificate and the shares represented thereby,

son so delivering, to complete the transfer by making the necessary in- 
dorsement. The transfer shall take efi'ect as of the time when the in- 
dorsement is actually made. This obligation may be specifically en- 
forced. 

§ 10. An attempted transfer of title to a certificate or to the 
shares represented thereby without delivery of the certificate shall have 
the effect of a promise to transfer and the obligation, if any, imposed 
by such promise shall be determined by the law governing the formation

they may incur by reason of the original certificate remaining outstand- 
ing. The court may also in its discretion order the payment of the cor- 
poration's reasonable costs and counsel fees. 

The issue of a new certificate under an order of the court as pro- 
vided in this section, shall not relieve the corporation from liability in 
damages to a person to whom the original certificate has been or shall

issuance of the new certificate. 

§ 18. In any case not provided for by this Act, the rules of law 
and equity, including the law merchant, and in particular the rules
