" Our physicians in the children's depart

and although we only have among our
medical supplies what is known as regular
products, yet we are free to confess that the
merits of Castoria has won us to look with
favor upon it."

irom tne tion. William 11. West:
Rock Island. 111.. June 20. 1892
Messrs. Evans. Corken aiid Kennedy. Com
mitlee of City Council of Rock Island
Gentlemen: In reply to your inquiry
( to me termB upon wnicn the suit in
stituted by me against tbe city and now
pending in our circuit court might be dis
posed of, 1 haye to say, I am not seeking
a money compensation to myself for tbe
loss ana damage to which 1 have been
subjected by the action of the city council
in raising the grade on Second avenue in
front of my dwelling By that suit 1 seek
to have it determined Jnuthoritatively
whether the property holders in the cay
have any remedy against the city for de
preciation in yalue of their property
caused by the action of the city council
in raising or lowering grades. I have no
doubt tbe council has the power to raise,
lower and alter grades from time to time
as they seem fit, but also. I have no
doubt that all property owners who suffer
famage thereby, are entitled to and may
recovtr just compensation for such loss
as they suffer by reason thereof. The
power exircised by tbe city iD such cases
is simnly, in substance, the powtr of em
inent domain. In my opinion that power
cannot be exercised in any form by mun:
c pal or other corporations or bodies, un
der tbe constitution and laws of thisstate,
to tie depiivation of the rigbt of any cit
izen to compensation for iriury or loss
Equality of burdens is a cardinal max
im of our law.
No man's property ought to be takeD
or depreciated in Vi.lue which is. in sub
stance taking itj tor public use or benefit
without just compensation.
The raising and lowering of grades of
streets, ana subsequent paving thereof,
is but commenced in our city. In whnt
has already been done some persons have
ieen largely ocaeniM, anil some have
been greatly damaged. Must those wh
have oecn and tnose who her after
shall be damaged, heir their losses alone,
be sacrificed for the general good? Sucti
a course is not equitable, nor do I be
lieve the law sustains it.
In the declaration in the above suit
tne suusiauuai iacts are truthruilv set
forth. The question whether the law
authorizes a recovery can be determined
by the judge upon an argument by
counsel oi a aemurrer to tne declara
tion, bucn argument might be made
next month, when our court convenes
again, if agreeable to lhe city council,
and the opiuion of the judge obtainea.
11 he noias that the declaration shows
a cause of action such holding will
establish the doctrine of law claimed by
me, and I will dismiss my suit. If he
holds that tbe declaration shows no cause
of action then he will dismiss the suit.
Either party, if dissatisfied with the ruling
of the luage, can take an appeal I take it
for granted that the council desire to
pursue a fair and ju t course, to oppress
no one. rich or poor, to do no injustice,
even if it had tbe power, and to pursue
such course in tbe improvement of tbe
city as shall distribute the undue bur
dens to particular persons, resulting
therefrom, fairly and impartially among
the people, and with a view to reach tbe
ascertainment of such a course, I propose
as herein above stated .
