Chicago Legislative Voters League
Objects to Their Expense
.to the State.
BAYS THE FEES AEE MUCH TOO HIGH
Quidnuncs Amazed at a Ileversal of

Springfield, tils., March 10. 'Hie
Legislative Voters' League (of Chica
po) has opened tire on the practice of
voting mouey to participants in con
tested election eases. Iloyt King, sec
retary of the league, acted as the attor
iiey for Ilopresi ntatire McManair.an. of
t'hic.iKo, the public ownership member
whose seat was oldest ed by William

Th; other day Secretary Klni? heard
Kl'lWAKD H. MORKIS.
that he would be granted a sum of.
money for Ie.ua I fees. Yesterday Presi
dent Cole addressed a letter to Repre
sentative Edward Morris, chairman of
the house committee on elections,
stating that King declines to accept
any such appropriation on the ground
that none was due from the state.
Letter from President Cole.
President Cole gives a history of the
practice together with the reasons
why he thinks it should be abolished,
lie says: "The legislative Voters'
r.oaue. through its secretary and at
torney. Iloyt King, appeared for John
J. MeManaman in the contest for his
seat in the house. In that connection
we desire to state that Mr. King does
not expect and will not accept any fee
from the state for his services. We are
led to makethis statement now because
It is broadly intimated that attorneys'
fees for all parties to the two contests
will be allowed. Your committee met
twice in each of these contests, once to
llx a tlate for argument and once to

I'ractico Declared EstrftTagant
. "The practice of paying attorneys
fees in these cases commenced In 1.S95,
when $800 was allowed In all. Hie to
tal has increased steadily since then
and last session It reached $:i,100. The
range from $2."0. $400 and $000 apiece
to as high as $1,(HK). If the Incumbents

Is some reason In paying an Incum

title a gains tmiiiped-up contests and
In paying the expense f a lona-lide
contestant when lie proves bis election.
Put the practice In the past of paying
fees, regardless of merit in the contest,
lias led to extravagance and to secure
the encouragement of contests merely
to secure the fees, and as was the case
this year, former memliers of the house
appear as the attorneys.
Protest Should lie Louder.
"Many objections to this method ot
getting rid of the state's money have
heeii whispered by " members. These
protests .should be loudly voiced to the
end that that this method of unconsti

pensation, of creating a pay roll within
n pay roll and of inviting contests for
the sake of attorney's fees be stopped."

DILLS OF INTEREST TO CHICAGO
Juul Afraid the Torrenw t.aw Amendment
I as Good aa Dead.
Springfield, Ills., March 10. Senator
Juul expects to resume the discussion
of tl. e Torrens law amendment, affect
ing the Chicago abstract combination,
in hicommittee on judicial department
and practice today or tomorrow. The
amendment agreed to by the real estate
board, making it discretionary with the
probate court whether the amendment
shall affect titles under a cloud, will
be adopted. Senator Juul says frankly
that he thinks the friends of the bill
made a fatal mistake in recalling it
from its order on the senate calendar
last week, and fears.it will never get
a3 far along again.
Juul promised that the bill would
be on the senate calendar not later
than Thursday next. It will be tho
policy of the. opponents of the measure
to delay consideration and retard the
progress of the bill as long as possible.
It is expected that committees of the
Chicago real estate board both in favor
of and in opposition to the bill will be
present this week to watch develop
ments. The Chicago charter joint resolution
of Senator Campbell, of Chicago, Is to
be discussed in the senate committee
on judiciary tomorrow. Last week a
number of prominent Chicago lawyers
and citizens appeared in behalf of the
proposition and this week the country
towns are expected to make their best
showing against it. It is probable that
the senate will pass the Perry bill en
larging the duties of the attorney gen
eral by giving him exclusive control of
all the law business of the state, its
officers, departments and boards. This
will alwilish a score or more of special
and departmental attorneys now ap
pointed directly by the governor.
The liquor interests are on the pro
gramme to appear before the commit
tee on license and miscellany tomorrow
In opposition to the Parker local op
tion bill. A delgation representing the
new charterconvention came to Spring

City Council Again Fails to Com
plete Revision of '
STUMBLES OVER WATER RATES
Pair of Knott j Sewer Problems Dis
cussed and Referred to
Again last evening the city council
failed to finish the consideration of
the revision of ihe ordinances in com
mittee that they might be finally
pnsMcd nnil placed in the hands of the
printer. The knot encountered con
sisted of a minimum meter rate. It
is practically the only measure left
to be considered. .
At present the minimum meter rate
is per annum and the committee
in making tin- first draft of the re
vision recommended that it be chang
ed to $12 per annum. This some of
the. aldermen thought might affect
the revenue and bo contrary to the
terms under which the waterworks
bonds were issued and Aid. MeCnsk
rin led a movement for further time.
The elTect of the present mimimum
rate is to prevent the further install
ing of meters in residences. Very few
consumers use $20 worth of water in
their homes when it is measured and
thus the city is deterred from extend
ing the use of meters and many places
in which waste might be checked are
allowed to go on with an extravagant
use of water under a fiat rate. Thus
the reduction- of the minimum rate
would not evidently decrease the rev
enue, but would assist in bringing
about the much desired economy in
Fifteenth Strt Kewtr Connldered-
The report of the sewer committee
recommending that the city rebuild
the sewer on Fifteentli street between
Fifth and F.ighth avenues before the
paving of that street is begun
brought up the question as to whet It
er the city has the right to do so
when the usual course is to assess the
parties attached to the sewers for
building and repairing them. The
section of sewer in question is a pri
vate one and has never been turned
over to the city. It has given a great
deal of trouble and something must
be done before the street is perma
nently improved. At the same time
the property owners have not peti
tioned for it to be rclaid and the
council is scarcely authorized to un
dertake the work and charge the
property owners with it. The esti
mate of the city engineer for an 1S
inch sewer recommended by the com
mittee is $soo. The matter was event
ually referred back to the sewer com
mittee with the addition of the two
aldermen of the ward to canvass the
sentiment of the property holders and
Another matter that the sewer
committee has to wrestle with is that
presented by the Twelfth street sew
er. A communication from John Ko
linsky n.kcd that such measures be
taken as will prevent it from over
flowing in time of flood and filling the
cellars of houses attached to it. This
was left with the committee and the
aldermen of the Second and Third
The latter part of the session was
devoted to the ordinances and the
changes recommended by the com
mittee were in the main adopted with
out alteration. The increase in tire
men's salaries went through and
strict regulations for employes of
the. department with reference to
their habits were incorporated. The
ordinance relating to the iolice, crea
ting the office of police matron at a
salary of $:.."0 a year, passed, and the
ordinance fixing- the numlwr of mem
bers of the force at 15 was repealed.

CIVII, 8KRVICE BILL, GOSSIP
Wlaacre Puzzled at tlia Disposition There
la to Push the BUI Through.
Spriugfield, Ills., March 10. Speak
er Miller arrived here from McLeans
boro early yesterday morning. The
civil service inll is a special order on
second reading In the house today. It
is expected that a large number of
amendments will Ik; offered, some of
them by the friends of civil service,
who see some weak points in the bill,
and some by members who are op
posed to the civil service proposition,
and hope to defeat all legislation on
the subject by forcing through the
house amendments that will render the
Friends of Governor Yates say that
he will take no hand In this fight for
amendment, but that taking the view
that he has discharged his duty in
the matter he will now await the ac
tion of the legislature without mak
ing further suggestions or recommen
dations. So far as the attitule of Sher
man is concerned it is lelievcd that
he will support the bill substantially
in its present form, on the theory that
the adoption of amendments making
radical changes in it will jeopardize
its approval by the governor, and that
it is better to have a ilvil service
bill of some kind enacted at this ses
sion, though !t be open to objection in
tome of Its vletaHs rather than have no
legislation at all on the subject.
The evident disposition to send the
till along at railroad speed is puzzling
the prophets who have been declar
ing there wo'dd be no civil service leg
islation this ression. and the only ex
planation 'forthcoming is that the bill
will be amended so that itsown friends
will hesitate to vote for it on third
