Judge Adams' Ruling in the Elec
tion Contest Case.
Krcra-d a Very Mtrange Finding In
View or the F .Jadge wilkla-n'nOpini.n.
The decision of County Judge Adams
in the mayoralty contest case was nica
loo tate yestcrdaj for the Akous to give
only the points on which the ruling was
based, so today e append the document
James tV Cuvt.nauiih vs. William Mc-
Conochie, n the county court, July 23,
1889. Then is a proceeding by petition,
under the stwuU-s, brought in the name
of James W. Va?anaiih, to contest the
alleged election of William McConochie
to the office of a ay or of the city of Rock
Island at the last, spring election.
The statute Vesignates the county,
court as the pro& tribunal for the hear
ing and determii atm of such cases, and
requires the person contesting to file his
petition therefcr wyh the clerk of the
proper court withii' thirty days after
the result of the elecion is declared.
The vote in this kase was canvassed,
and the result at nouioea on the 5th day
of April, and the petion herein filed in
the county court on Uie 4th day of May
thereafter, and tlieclei; on the same day
issued a summons llieon returnable to
the next term o: this tj.urt to be begun,
etc., on theseco id Mi lay of July next
thereafter. Upin the n nnd Monday of
July (being the irst da.f the July law

for the purpose of moving the court to
quash the summons and dismiss the pro
ceedings on the groundj bat the county
court has no ju isdiction i bear and de
termine a case of this nmtre at a law
term, but that the same s;uald have been
brought to a probate teim, and these
only. The probate terms of this court
begins on the tir-tt Mouday -f each month.

and ihe court Uas no jurisdiction f the
dt fendant in this proceeding.
What then is the status of the cite in
the county court? Counsel for defi
ant moves to dismiss the petmonfor
want of jurisdiction in the court. ,
The county courts of this state havia
two-fold jurist iction, separate and &
tinct in their character, and similar
some extent in their nature and operatic
to the !aw and chancery jurisdiction d
: We were approached a few days ago to become a party to
a scheme which was explained to ua in the following language:
J "We (ihe schemer) will place a half dozen men in your city and will
visit every houte, offering for sale a ticket costing the purchaser 25 cents.
This will entitle the holder any time within six months to demand of you
upon an additional payment of $2.75 making a total of $3.00 a dozpn
, Crtloneis and an extra picture in a gilt frame. This outfit of frame and
pictures you can represent as worth $4, $5 or $6; we will swear it's worth
w hatever Y"U say. We place these tickets in the community to keep the

It is claimed that as the statute
a mistake or desire to return their sincere thanks to
their neighbors and friends who showed
nis ciaimeainat as me statute says h thetic and helpful kind
that all matters cognizable at the probate . J K c r i
term shall also be cognizable at the law
terms, this case although a probate mat
ter, is cognizable at the law term. -
But this proceeding is not cognizable
at a probate term, having been improper
ly brought at a law term, where it now
stands on the law docket as a law case.
In order to entitle a probate matter to a
bearing at a law term it must be properly
instituted or it has no standing in court.
It is conceded that the case before us is
erroneously on tbe law docket. Can the
court then, sitting as a law court, enter
an oider quashing the summons and cons
tinuing the case with leave to issue a
summons returnable to a probate term of
the court T This would leave the case
still in the law court to be heard and dis
posed of at a probate term."
Tbe proceeding was brought as a law j
case, the summons was issued and made
returnable .at a law term, and it was
treated throughout as a law case, and it
is still pending in the law court. The
court has decided that the summons was
improvidenlly issued and roust be
quashed, but it has no power to order the
case continued and let the clerk issue a
summons returnable to the next probate
term. The court has no jurisdiction of
the matter ss a law court and can make
no order whatever in relation to it except
to dismiss it at plaintiff's costs, and that
is the order entered herein.
Lucian Adams, County Judge.
Tbe case will be appealed, but the
counsel for the complainant. Judge Wil
kinson and Wm. McEniry, have not yet
been able in the face of the strange rul
ing to decide where to appeal it. Con
versing on the subject this morning,
Judge Wilkinson remarked:
"The opinion as filed by the court,
seems to me to be confused and weak on
the question of the court's jurisdiction.
To entitle a case to a hearing before the
court, tbe court must have jurisdiction of
the person of tbe defendant, and also of
the subject matter to be tried. The
jurisdiction of the defendant is obtained
by summons from the court and served
on the defendant, and the court held on
the hearing before it a fortnight ago that
tbe summons was improper! made re
turnable to the July term and for that
cause quashed the summons. By that
decision the court held that it bad no ju
risdiction over McConochie until another
summons should be issued and served ou
him. And that's all there is of that
branch of the case."
"The decision" yesterday was on the
defendant's motion to dismiss the pro
ceeding throw it out of court. This
the court could do only in case it
had no jurisdiction of the subject;
that it did have jurisdiction thereof
seems to me beyond doubt. The only
thing required hy law to give
to the court that jurisdiction was the fil
ing by the contestant in the county
clerk's office of a written statement set
ting forth his causes on contest within
thirty days after tbe result of the elec
tion was declared. This was done; tbe
written statement was filed with the of
ficer and within the time named, and
such filing gave to tbe court, complete
4 -" cents that we collect. Oh, yes, the public will bite at worse than this.
lint Us a great scheme as the frame you give away costs $12.00 per bun-,
dred, 12cts with every order. Suppose one of your neighbors were to go
into it, they now advertise their cabinets at $2.00 per dozen, say the extra
piriure and frame would cost an additional 25cts, through our scheme he
would get f2.75, a handsome profit on this extra picture and frame, Eh?
Of course we prefer to work this scheme through the leading photo
grapher but we are bound to work it through some one. Yes, we may
strike an irresponsible party or he may get closed up. We give no bond
that he will continue in business, but he will if he can, because you see
this scheme gives him better prices than be now obtain."
It is noedeM to say that RASMUSSEX declined to employ peddlers and
tramps to work such questionable tactics. The only mean9 we use to
create business are:
1st. We make only the finest quality of work and that at popular prices.
21. We guarantee satisfaction.

Rock liliind is our excuse for exposing the true inwardness of the scheme.

matters are to be heard and determined
at the law tern s only.
But the prot ate jurisdiction is genera'
and included n t only matters relating to
the probalo of wills and settlement of es
tales, but i
only those matters specifically mentioned
in tbe statute conferring common law
jurisdiction on the court) all of which are
to be consider! d probate matters and to
be cognizable il the probate terms.
This appeals to confer two separate
and distiuct . urisdictious, to constitute
two separate tribunals having separate
and distincts dockets and records similar
in their nature to the law and chancery
branches of tin circi.it clerk, and presid
ed over, as therein, by tbe same judges.
As the judges of the ciicuit court sit
as chancellor or law judge according as
tbey may be hearing a law a chancery
case, so the county judge, during the
three erms iti each year when tbe law
and probate terms are concurrent, sits as
a probate or law judere according as he
may be hearing a probate matter or a law
case; and as it is necessary, in order to
er class of caes, law or chancery, that
each case shocld be brought in the prop,
er manner to the proper court, the law
case to the lav- side and tbe chancery to
the chancery side, by tbe same rule it
seems necessary to bring probate matters
to the law terms of the county court. If
a law case is brought as a suit in cban-
cerv the circuit court will dismiss it, and
it will deal in like manner with a chan
cery suit brought and issued on as a law
case. The two jurisdictions are distinct
and there is n power in the circuit court
to transfer a suit improperly brought to
either side of the court by simple order
to the other. There is no doubt but that
a case properly issued but erroneously
placed upon the wrong docket by the
clerk mav bt correctly docketed hy a
simple order or direction of the court.
Tbe supreme court of this state has held
in the case of the city of East St. Louis
vs. Wittish, 108 111., 250, which was a
petition for a special assessment, that tbe
county court has no jurisdiction of a
common law case brought to a probate
term, and hat sustained the county court
in dismissing the proceedings as brought.
The courts of different states in the ab
sence of an es press statute authorizing it,
held that one court has no power to trans
fer a case wrongly brought to it to the
proper court having jurisdiction of the
case, out tnai it must oe aismissea anu ue
begun anew in the proper court. And
this reasoning applies not to amerent ana
distinct courts only, but to courts having
two or more distinct jurisdictions and
presided ovei by one and tbe same judge
We mav Quote tbe supreme court oi
Indiana aB holding this view with refer
ence to its cixuit courts which have con'
ferred upon them a probate jurisdiction,
and tbe supreme court of Arkansas
where the ounty courts have a probate
iurisdiction, and which holds in 5 Ar
- . ... .. .
kansas Ssu, .hat the presiding judge oi
the county t ourt can only exercise pro
bate lunsdicion when sitting as a judge
of probate, und that all acts performed
by him, as veil as by tbe ciera oi.ine
court, relat ng to matters or prooaie,
when the . udge is not sitting as such
turize of probate, are void.
JNow in tne case oeiore us tne proceea
ing was knowingly and intentionally
brought to '.he July term of the county
court; tbe summons was issued thereon
returnable to the return day of the next
common law term; the praecipes for the
subpamaes c f witnesses were entitled to
the July term, and no action was taken
by counsel for contestant until the first
day of tbe July common law term, and
then upon tie motion to dismiss ineyaa
mitted tbe bringing of the case to tbe
common lav term and argued in favor of
the correctness and legality of so bring
ing it, so thit the court has no hesitancy
in saying tbat it was so brought by con
testant kno vingly and intentionally, and
that its setting into the wrong jurmdic
nd its officers to docket it, and file it in
proper place. If not so docketed
tid filed the court should have cured the
feet by having it properly done. I
rari tbe whole proceeding as a weak.
thmgh successful effort, to get rid of
trjngthe case on Us merits by dismissing
it n s mens technicality."
