of Their Wit.
NOHE WANTS BO MONKEY BUSINESS
Member of the Canal Board Crit
icized by Sherman Concurrence
Springfield, Ills., April 16. In the
liouse yesterday opposition developed
to Morris' bill amending the Cools
county primary election law so as to
make it unnecessary to call the roll of
delegates except In the event of a con
test. Morris explained that the bill lad
been agreed upon by both political par
ties in Chicago, and that its sole pur
pose was to effect a saving of time.
Sherman asked a question. "In case,
he said, "there should bfr a chairman
of the convention as deficient of hear
ing as speakers of this house have been
for the last twenty years, could he rtt
prevent an expression of the will of
Morris sad that the bill applied only
to Cook county conventions, and that
It would not. In any way stifle the ex
pression of the delegates..
Sbermtn Against the Bill.
Sherman said: "If your conventions
In Cook county are so big that It takes
two or three weeks to call the roll of
delepates you oujjht to i educe the
number of delegates In the convention.
In the county conventions
you select delegates to the state con
vention, and that 1 where I am Inter
ested In this bill. On local maters I
am not interested in what is coming
from Cook county or the city of Chi
cago. 1 object to
the creation of a stronger rule of the
boss in polities t:han would now be pos
sible." Primaries Elect the Delegate..
Morris in reply said that the county
conventions had n;thiiiR to do with the
selection of delegates to the state con-
venion. "Under he law." said he, "the
delepates to the state convention from
Cook county are elected by a direct
primary vote and the couny convention
has absolutely nothing to do with the
matter." lie added In reply to Sher
man that the county conventfim cannot
Instruct these delegates.

After some further dis"us'on of the

and could mt give the information re
"Am I right." asked Sherman, "In
sayiug that this bill concerns only the
members of Cook county?"
"That is right," replied Shtnaban,
who was in the chair.
"Then," said Sherman, "I appeal to
every member outside of Cook county
to vote against IL" The bill was passed

taxes In Illinois on the amount of their
capital stock employed in the state,
which was a special order. It was
stated - that bill had not been en
grossed, and Nohe rushed to the clerk's
desk in evident excitement. "I am
not going to have any monkey busi
ness about this bill," he declared angri
ly. The bill was deferred temporarily,
pending the report of the enrolling and
engrossing committee. Later Nohe
called the bill up again and it was
Among the bills passed were the fol
