In times of peace were they to but
once get a late of the excitement it af
fords. We uuderstaud that Mr. A. U. Irvin
has been tendered aud accepted the po
sition of deputy warden of the Southern
Illinois penitentiary. Tills appointment
is made, as we understand It, by the pen
itentiary commissioners, and we believe
they they have made the very
best selection possible, Past experience
in this state bus shown that It is very few
men who have tiie requisite qiiulillca
tions to fill the position of warden in our
penitentiaries, and wo believe Mr. Irvin
to be one of these few men.
At all events wo do not believe had the
commissioners hunted tho state over
they could have found a man better
tltted iu every respect than Mr. fryln.
During his long experience as
sheriff of this county, where the Jail
always contains from thirty to fifty
prisoners, he exercised a great Inlluenco
over them, and they were always obe
dient to his wishes. He was always
kind, yot stern enough to teach them
that his orders must be obeyed, aud the
consequence was that the best ot disci
pline prevailed among them. As deputy
warden we believe he will prove tho right
man iu tho right place. We commend
tho action of the commissioners In their
selection, and congratulate Mr, Irvin on
his good fortune In securing the appoint'

J, B. Phillis. cliy clerk,
Dkar Sir: You have asked mo to
whom should you direct and deliver the
warrant for collection of special assess
ments, required under Sec. 14S ch. 24.
It. S. p. 237, etc.
1 beg to reply as follows, viz:
First Sec, 150. same chapters re
quires that tho warrant shall be issued
and "delivered to the officer authorized
to collect such special assessments."
ISee. page 4. Sec. 30 Rev. Ordinances.)
tJecond-The sheriff and ex-olllclo
oonnty collector Is not, (aa suggested by
you) "the officer authorized to collect
.uch special assessment" within the
meaning of said section 150, etc., his only
authority being In oaaes of delinquent
assessment, after a 'report" and "re
turn," as specified In Seo. 158, (See re
vised ordinances, p. 50, Sec. 39.) and
beo. 178 ot the General Rev. law, (see
Key. Stat. p. 887.) ch. 120.
Third Although section PK) ch. 2t,R. S.
p. 22U (see revised ordinances
p. S3, sec. 13,) defining the duties et city
collector," does not expressly make it
such collector's duty, nor authorize him
to "collect such special assessments;"
and although the "Revised Ordinances"
ch. a, p. 72, etc,, providing (sec. 2) for
appointment ot a "city collector" by the
mayor and council, fail to define the du
ties of such collector, yet, 1 am ot the
opinion that It such collector were ap
pointed, be would, under a proper con-
itructiou of said seo. 100, ch. 24, be re-
frarded as "the officer authorized to col
ect such special assessments;" but to
save all question, It would have been the
safer courso to have so provided In the
Fourth The treasurer, under sec. 107,
ch. 24, R. S, (see Revised Ordinances, p.
oo, sec. 20) might uy ordinances be au
thorized to collect such a-sessments, but
I do not find that he has been so author
ized. Fifth la the absence of the appoint
ment of a "city collector," or of further
legislation on the part ot the city coun
cil or state legislation, In my opinion
there Is no "officer authorized to collect
such special assessments," and therefore
no one to w hom you can legally direct
or deliver said warrant, or any w arrant
lor the collection of special assessments.
