The Reeeat Lrftl.tatlvA Enactment
Whleh rorbids Corporations Frm
Compelling Tuelr Kniplojes to Bay
A great deal of inquiry bas been made
as to the rjpw Illinois law forbidding
truck stores, or tbe practice by corpora
tions in withholding wages of their tm
ployes and giving tbem ia payment for
labor, goods and merchandise thus en
abling the employer himself to exact a
double profit on bis labor, and it affords
opportunity for imposition where there is
tbe disposition to take advantage of it.
The full text of tbe law is appended:
Section 1. It shall be unlawful for any
person, corporation or association now
engaged oc hereafter to be engaged in any
mining or manufacturing business in this
state to engage or be interested either
directly or indirectly in keeping a truck
store, or controlling any store, shop or
scheme for the furnishing of supplies,
tools, clothing, provisions or groceries to
his, its or their employes while so en
gaged in mining cr manufacturing.
sec. 2. r.very person, company, cor
poration or association found guilty of
violating section 1 of this act, either by
himself, its or their agents, servants or
employes or partners, shall be guilt? of
a misdemeanor for each and every day
such business is done in violation of said
section, and on conviction will be liable
to a fine for each offense of not less than
50 nor more than S200. to be recovered
in the name of the people for the use of
the school fund; and any person having
knowledge of the fact that this section has
been violated but make complaint and
cause summons of warrant to be issued.
Sec. 3. It shall be unlawful for any
person, company, corporation or associa
tion employing workmen in this stste to
make deductions frcm the wares of his,
its or their workmen, except for lawful
money, checks or drafts actually advanced
without discount, and except such sums
as may be agreed upon between employer
and employe which may be deducted "for
hospital or relief f unds for sick or in
Sec. 4. Any deductions made from tbe
wages of any workman in this state ex
cept as provided in section 3 of this act
may be recovered in any appropriate ac
tion before any conrt of competent juris
diction, together with such reasonabld
attorney's fees as the court in its discre
tion shall thick proper, and no oS.-et or
counter claim of any kind shall be al
lowed in such action or proceeding.
Sec. 5 All attempt to evade or avoid
the provisions of this act by contract or
otherwise, shall be deemed a violation
thereof, and for every violation in addi
tion to the civil remedy provided for in
section 4, there shall on conviction be a
fine impo-ed of cot less than J53 nor
more than 2J0 for each offense.
Sec. 6. Nothing in this act shall be so
construed as to include the business of
farmers or farm laborers or servants.
Sec. 7- 'Truck" means the payment
of wages in anything other than in law
ful money, or otherwise than for the full
amount earned by the employe.
cable Ien"t Borrow Trouble.
An On ah a special to the Caicago later-Ocean
President Cub'.e. of the Rock I:Und,
and Judge Withrow, of Chicago, general
attorney for that road, arrived in tbe city
this morning to be present at the trial of
the case of the Rock Island against the
Vnion Pacific, which is set for tomorrow
in the United States court before Judge
Brewer. Judge Dillon, of New York,
the general counsel of the Union Pc;fic,
is also in the city, and will take an active
part in the prosecution of the cise.
President Cable's first inquiry after his
arrival was about the condition of crops
and whether there had been too much
rain. Upon being assured that the crop
outlook was never better he expressed
"Do you expect to haul much of the
crop out of the state? ' he k$ asked .
"We certainly do." replied Mr. Cable
Will you build another bridge or
haul it across the river in boats?
Mr. Cable leaned back and stuck bis
thumbs in tbe armboles ot his vest as a
quiet smile spread over bis features
Then, in a deliberate manner, he said:
"If 1 wasn t a poor man 1 wouid bet a
suit of clothes we will haul our share c f
your crop over tbe Union Pacific bridge."'
N ben pressed tor lurtber light on the
intentions of the Rock Island with refer
ence to tbe building of a new bridge,
which he mentioned when here last, Mr
Cable declined to make any statcmen'
saying they shouldn't cross a bridge until
they reached it.
