VETOES THE BILL
Deneen Kills Law Limiting Time
for Recovery of Public
ALSO SAVES THE GRAND JURY
Finds Measure Abolishing Inquisitorial
Body in Some Instances is not
Fair to all Alike.
Springfield, III., June 5. The Chi
cago chatter bill was approved by gov
ernor Deneen today.
Springfield, 111., June 5. Governor
Deneen last night vetoed the bill limit
ing lo live years the time in which the
suite and all counties, cities, towns and
villages may institute proceedings
against officials and their bondsmen lo
recover public moneys th'oy may have
converted to their use during their
term of office.
The bill was the development of the
recent decision of tilt- supieme court in
the former state auditor's and treasur
er's registered bond fee cases, in which
it was decided that the state might go
back 10 years and sue bondsmen and
their estates to recover these fees,
which were retained by the officials.
KeepN (annul Jury.
The governor also vetoed McGoorty's
bill abolishing the grand jury in cer
tain cases and making information by
the state's attorney the initiatory pro
cess in criminal prosecution.
The governor says that the bill woul 1
lie constitutional if the grand jury had
been entirely abolished, but this the
bill does not do. The bill provides thin
a graml jury must bo impaneled at
least once a year in every county in
the state. The effect of this bill is to
abolish the grand jury for a part of the
year and to retain it for the rest.
It is clear, therefore, the governor
says, that all citizens would not re
ceive the same and equal treatment.
Furthermore, ho says, under its terms
one man charged with felony may not
be prosecuted by the grand jury that
had reviewed his case, while another
man under the same charge and in the
same position may be subjected to the
inconvenience, expense and indignity
of a criminal prosecution without such
a hearing by the grand jury.
.iproprlntion Hills Approved.
The bill appropriating $"12,000 for
the ordinary and incidental expenses of
the state penitentiary at .loliet for the
next two years was approved of, as
also were the following bills:
Appropriating $5,000 per annum for
the state fair and $200 per annum fo
each county fair; also $13,020 for the
expenses of the State Fair association
Appropriating $2,500 per annum for
the Illinois Farmers' institute, and $75
per annum for each county farmers' in

the Illinois Firemen's association.

SENATE APPROVES OF BILL
Veto of Mayor McClellan Overridden by
New York Legislature.
Albany. N. Y.. June 5. The senate
today coiicured with the assembly in
passing the so-called public utilities
bill eiver the veto of Mayor McClel
lan of New York City.
An inquiry as to the powers of New
York mayors in approving bills passed
by the New York legislature is an-
j , : today's Chicago Record Her-
aid as follows:
Mayors of cities of the first and sec
ond class (and municipal councils ol
other cities) in the state of New York,
have the right to disapprove; not veto
bills affecting those communities -jx-clusively,
or the counties embraced
within the limits ef the cities. Such
legislation affecting cities is known as
"special." The action of the mayor
docs not end the matter, however, but
is merely an expression of disapproval
on the part of the city involved. A.
bill disapproved by a mayor may be
come a law through the legislature's
repassing it by a majority vote.
