Is it possible that the Illinois leg

that an investigation is necessary?
Vanish the thought!

Schroeder's iirst break at leadership
in the council was a very unwise
one, and evidence of how little he
really knows about municipal affairs
for a man who aspired to the mayor
alty. The adjournment of the coun
cil to nest Monday night on his sug
gestion to adopt the appropria
tion ordinance is an absurdity, and
after the mayor and aldermen think
it over they are very apt to set Mr.
Schroeder politely aside. The Third
ward gentleman was evidently try

" Abolish the Fees.
The Springlield Register presents
this splendid argument in support
of a bill at present before the Illinois
"The bill introduced by Senator
Kiehaus providing for abolishing
the fee system in the payment of
state's attorneys should become a
law. For some reason or other the
senate appears to be trifling with the
measure. It was recommitted last
week without any good reason being
assigned, when it should have been
passed and sent to the house for con
currence. The bill is one of the
most important on the calendar of
cither house, not only as a matter
of economy to the tax payers, but as
a matter of justice to all the people,
and it should be reported out again
and acted on at once.
'There was a time in the history
of Illinois when the fee system as
applied to the officers of the courts
in Illinois was justifiable, but the
time has long past. Originally,
there was nothing objectionable
about the practice. The population
was small, law cases were" few, and
the fees amounted to no more than
a reasonable payment for the duties
But as villages grew into cities
as population increased, and as vio
lations of law multiplied the compen
sation of state's attorney and other
court officials came to be out of all
proportion to the ability required or
the work performed. There is now
no portion of the state of Illinois in
which under an equitable rule the
services of the state's attorney as
well as other officials may not be
paid for by fixed salary. The time
has come to exterpate the fee princi
pie from the . public institutions of
Illinois. No incident in .the opera
tion of that pernicious principle is
more flagrant tlran that which re
wards state's attorneys with fees for
convictions. The state's attorney,
being a quasi judicial official, should
have no special motive to procure
convictions. Avarice should not bp
permitted to play a personal part in
the discharge of an official duty.
'In not a few counties in the state
the office of a state's attorney is far
more remunerative than the judge
sly p. In Cook county the dispro
portion has come to be- very great.
It is stated that this official In that
county has been permitted to de.
grade'his office into a collection agen
cy for his private profit. lie receive
'the same salary paid the judges of
the circuit and superior courts, vis:
f 7,000 per annum, and in addition
thereto collects and retains vast
sums in iees, making his office one of
excessive revenue, repugnant to jus
tice. The salarr of every state's at.
torney should "be fixed "by law, and
should not exceed that paid the
judges, nor should he b permitted
to receive or collect any additional
emolument for any reason or from
any source. Under the present sys
tem this officer too often becomes a
persecutor of the poor and defense
less instead of a prosecutor of via.
liters of law. its perniciousncss in
this respect is not confined to large
cities, but has been demonstrated in
many cases in our smaller counties.
There is no defense for the fee sys
tem in that or any other office. It
works barm and only harm, and that
continually. It should be cut up
root and branch. Abolish the fees.
Let the compensation for every pub
lic service be fixed at a specific sum.
to be neither increased nor dimin
ished during an incumbent's term.
This legislature should begin the
good work at once by passing the
