Springfield, Ills.. Feb. 21. The bill
Speaker Miller introduced in the house
yestcrday--a bill to re-real the law
passed two years ago "Requiring re
ports of births and deaths and the
recording of the same, the regulation
of Interments, or other disposal of dead
bodies" is one of four bills of the
same character that have been present
ed, but this emanating from the speaker-of

connected with It which is of political

not think the passage of the repeal
bill will affect the health regulations or
Chicirgo or other cities in the state.
All he desires to do is to free the resi
dents of rural communities from what
they consider an obnoxious law.
Hard on 8oine CoiumnnltUt,
At the last session the legislature
passed a lav compelling the registra
tion of births and deaths with the
county authorities and the securing of
burial permits from the township
clerk. In sparsely settled neighbor
hoods the law has worked a great
hardship, according to Speaker Miller,
nnd the people in the southern part
of .the state have been particularly in
censed over the resulting condition..
It so happened that there were three
members of th last house named Mil
ler, one of whom voted for the un

The present speaker did not support
it, but his political opionents in th
last election accused him of helping
to saddle the obnoxious law on th
district, and it was only by doing tin-
Paul Revere act up and down th
township, telling the voters that hr
was misrepresented, that Miller saved
his political bacon. The feeling asalnst
the legislative delegation on account of
the law, the speaker believes, causetj
the defeat of Senator Chapman, who
was running for congress in the same
tier of counties.
Obnoxious Feature of the Law.
The speaker says that "The ob
noxious feature of the law is that
which compels persons to get burial
permits from the township clerk beforo
holding funerals. In many cases it is
impossible to reach the clerk without
much delay. 1 shall consult with Sec
retary Egan. of the board of health,
about the matter, for I don't wish to

State board of health officials here
say that every physician in the state
will opiKise the repeal of the present
law. "It means the ruin of our ef
ticient plan of securing vital statis
tics," said Dr. Egan. "The law can
be amended to cover the objections
pointed out by the people In southern
Illinois and a bill to that effect' is now
on second reading in the senate. This
bill simply provides that more officers
can issue binlal permits, and will re

MERCHANT IIOl'K FOR RELIEF
Tliey fcay They Have to I'ay Double Taxa
tion in the 1'nnt.
sspringneiu, ills., l-cli. Chicago
merchants who say they have suffered
double taxation in the past because of
the fact that -they are conducting their
business as corporations, except to get
relief at the hands of the present Icgis
lature. They have placed their case
before the leaders in both senate and
house nnd expect to be renevea or a
burden totheirbusiness arid the annual
annoyance of appearing before the
state board of equalization. The, bill
asketl for by the members Is an
amendment to the revemie law by
which "purely mercantile" corpora
tions will be exempted w the future
from paying taxes on their capital
stock. ' '
Under the present revenue law inau
u.facturlng, lire stock breeding and
newspaper and publishing cprppra.tiqns
1 f ; v ' i
are "pecineally exemptea" rrtfm capital
stock assessments. The merchant
want to be placed In the same class.
The bill they ask for simply adds tha
words "and purely mercantile to th
clause In the revenue law concerning
these exemptions They argue that a
merchant has less of a chance to evade
his share of the taxes than tempta
any other buisness man, providing, of
course, the local assessor does his full
duty. His stock of goods is open and
a part of his business is to display his
goods to the public. Nothing can be
hidden and values are staple. In this
respect his assets are different from
stocks, bonds, mortgages and similar
The following is the way the. thing
is looked at by a merchant: "Under the
present revenue law the local assessors
are required to assess the tangible as
sets of a corporation. . In the case of
the merchant this assessment as a rule
includes every dollar the business ia
worth. But if the merchant conducts
his bxfsiness as a corporation he is
called before the state board of equal',
zation and required to make a second
sworn statement as to his property. If
it happens that his capital stock ia
greater than the amount of the assess
ment listed by the local assessors, the
chances are heavily in favor of an ad
ditional assessment on the capital
stock by the board.
"In practice this is the way it works
out: A is the proprietor of a dry goods
store. He has $100,000 invested In his
business and the local assessor enters
up that amount against him-for taxa
tion. A runs his business on a copart
nership basis. Across the street II has
a similar business, but he has incor
porated it into a stock company. The
capital stock Is $100,000 and this
amount is put into the business. The
local assessor assesses this company
$100,000 also, the same as he does
A's. But as the, law stands B Is re
quired to go before the state board
of equalization and demonstrate to
that skeptical body that his business is
fully taxed by the $100,000 and that he
should lawfully pay nothing on capital
stock. In a majority of cases he has
to pay also on his capital stock."
The bill to nniAi.l the revenue law
and protect such mercantile corpora
tions has been presented in Ixitn sen
ate and house. In the senate it is lc-
fore the coritora lions committee.
"MONEY SHARKS" GETTING Ill'SY

Springfield. Ills.. Feb. 1M. It Is re
ported here that the "money sharks'
of Chicago who loan money to em
ployes and take as security an assign
ment of their undue salaries have
raised a fund for the purpose of de
feating legislation looking to the pro
hibition of the assignment of salaries.
The senate has had the matter under
consideration, and the judiciary com
mittee reitortcd an amendment to one
bill which it is claimed affords no pro
tection whatever to employers, who
will still be liable to suits by "nioney
sharks" on assignments of salaries.
A bill is pending in the house which
its friends state will protect employ

AN OLD COLD
Is Catarrh, and Catarrh Leads
The tendency of catarrh of the head
is to pass downward through the bron
chial tubes to tho lungs. Any one -who
has had catarrh of tho head for a year or
more finds the disease eradnallv -nro-
gressing downward. In some cases the
progress Is rapid, and in other eases it is
clow; but sooner or later if catarrh is
allowed to run, It will go to the lungs
and set up the disease known as con
sumption. It is doubtful if consumption
Is ever caused by anything except ca
tarrh. The catarrh usually begins as a cold in
the head or throat, and is neglected until
it becomes chronic; then it begins to
dawn on the victim that he has catarrh.
Unless he is very foolish indeed he will
not rest easy until the catarrh is entirely
cured. Thousands pay no attention to
it until it is too late.
Mrs: J. Priest, Le, Mich., writes : I
think there Is no medicine on earth that
excells Peruna. My husband won't take
any other. We have tested it and it
worked a great change in my son's
health last spring when we thought he
was going into consumption. We gave
him only one bottle and he was all right.
I tell everybody about how much good
it has done us. My husband says he
can't do without it. As for myself it
saved me seven years ago from going
blind. I could not see to read one word
for six weeks. I thought I should purely
lose my sight. I commenced taking Pe
runa and by the time I had taken ono
bottle I could c to read as well as ever.
