one man is to be qualified by general

Senator Dalley and . Representa
tive Butts, Black, and Gorman sent
the state fair removal bill to third
reading in the house yesterday with
out a fight. Several members of the
legislature who will vote against the
bill when it is placed upon its pass
age were opposed to taking part in
an effort to j strike out the enacting
clause while the bill was upon second
reading and out of 'deference to their
wishes Springfield's committee, de
decided to delay its fight until next
week, letting the bill advance .with
out any show of resistance.
Peoria's proposition did not mater
ialize as Springfield people had been
led to believe it would. The only
bid from Peoria of substantial form
came in the nature of an amendment
to Black's removal bill, providing
that before Sept. 1, 1909. Peoria or
its representatives deposit with the
state 'treasury $250,000 for the re
moval of the fair and $100,000 for
the purchase of not less than 150
acres upon which to put it
