The afternoon sessIon was not entirely

drew his objection to the present conshlera-

anll mo\'cll that that rellort bo adolJled.
Crane moved thnt the report be made the

tomorrow morning.

; . Illon on the Part or some of this sentors
. . . . . to reel that the rules committee was en-
; dea'oring to Inject Into the rules something
: that the senate did not want.
Crane remhHlell the senator from Lancaster
f that as yet not one hnll ( sug/ested that any
r . alemllt was being lade to rairoad anythIng
. through the sennte. The committee on rules
hall delberated for more than n week over
Its 11rollosell amenlments ali the result was
contained on a slnglo sheet of paller. I was
. . known that the sellons or tIm committee
, hail not been harmonious. I was hardly fair
to ask the senate to comprehend In ten
minutes what It took tIm committee n week
, to formulnte. '
Wltson reported that the committee acted
ppon tl ( ! theory that SOle memhers of the
snate were better able to comprehend the
contents ot a single page.

by movllg that the secretary or the senate' '

street was filled up and that ho was awarded
$300 damages. On July 21. ho further states ,
the orlnance was repealed . and the city has
never haul . the award , having Ignored all his
claims. 01 the other hand , the city claims
that the street was filled In 1892 , I year or
more before the ordinance authorIzing the
grading , and that the suit Is only a scheme
to get money out or tim treasury. According
to the statemelts of the officials or the city
engIneerIng department , time street was used

streets that were being graded own. The
city never authorized time cOllractors to fill
tIme street , but allowed them to do so , as I
would have to bo done II tIme to come. After
time street was fled a councilman rushed an
ordinance through the council , nnthorlzlng
the grading at the street , but the ordInance

Algchl's message was delivered to the 1111-
10is legislature toda ) ' . I Is n lengthy and
careruly prepared documenl , In which n
timely warning Is given against the encroachment - '
croachment of power by the United States I
In beginning the governor devotes much
space to the review or time condition of the
various state Insttutons and makes nurnor-
ous reeonmmmiemmdatiomms. Among other things
ho takes UII the queston or capital 111-
Ishment and asks whether time death sen-
( once docs nny Practical good ; I wo are nny
better off lmn these In states which long ago
abolished I : whether I Is not barbarous and
degrading In Its effects amid whether It would
not ba better to hal'o a more ratonl system
of mnnagement or our prisons and abolish
capital punlRhlent emmtiroiy.
On the questIon of civil service the governor -
ernor says there Is urgent mmecd of 1pllsla-
lon that will releve executive ohilcars , both
state and munlcilal , of the constant and overwhelmIng -
whelmIng Ilportunly of office seelers. lie
doubts time wisdom or n system that forever
keeps ! the sle men on the lay rolls , for I
Is not calculated to pro uc ! the highest degree -
gee of proficiency. A mean should bo struck
between the retention of the competent and
the distribution or spoils.
Time governor , ppeaklng or the administra-
ton of justice In large cites , says the con-
diton In business or courts of Chicago ahnoit
amounts to n denial of jus lce. The whole
s 'stem should bo revised alul simplIfied at
once. The governor also calls alenton to
the conditons surroundlnl police and justce
courts In Chicago , which he declares a dls-
grace. The revenue sstem In this state 15
declared In Its practical workimmgs to bo a
Is praclcal workhlls
giant of injustice . The governor speaks at
length or the manner In which the rich es-
cape proper taxaton and urges legislaton
especially looldng to the 11rol1er assessment
of corporations . lie calls atenton to the oct
IJrovhln ( that cOlpanles formed for the
publIcation or neWSlapers shal ha assessed
as the property of private Illvhluals Is as-
sessed. When carefully examined It Is found
that only tIm tangible property can bo assessed -
sessed and many newspaper corporatons
which have not much ' tangible property . but
do n large business in goods that would sell
for cash In time markol and which make
enormous profits . practically escape taxation .
ComIng down to the selement or labor
troubles time governor says the question of
dealing with them Is a difcul one. No
practIcal method of enforcing a decree of
compulsory arbitration has been fotmimd but
there Is .o difficulty In the way of malchll
n compulsor . investigation In every case anti
this alone would be I great preventative ns
vel as correclve , 1romlt ) ' ascertaIning anll
making publc time actual conditions In each
case arouses a moral sentiment that often
forces a settlenment. The governor strongly
urges legislation on thIs subject and also to
prevent laborers being broulht Into the state
by squads , as they generally have to b t
displace an equal number , who being sud-
dcnly thrown out , become n public charge.
Governor Algold speaks In terms or highest -
est conlncndaton or the work of the Illinois
National Guard during tim troubles fof the
past ) 'ear. TakIng up the question or the
great strIkes , he reviews the many reports
wblch hnvo been made and says the placing
of the United States troops on duty In Chicago -
cage under time conditions existing pr sents
a question 'or ' the Ifar-reachlng .mpor-
tance The old doctrine of state rights Is In
no way Involve Nobody for I moment
qu ltons the supremacy or time union. The
great civil war settled thnt we should not
have anarchy. I romalna to be' settled
whether we shall lo destroyed by despotismim.

"Oovernment by Injunctons' Is dealt wiLls
severely by the governor , who says the
usurpation or power on the part or the federal

federal troops to Chicago. , Governor Alt-

"contempt of courl" made under these In-
junmctions atid of time fact that the federal
junclons goverment , ' In slie of having at hand In I
Chicago time complete machinery of justice ,
found It necessary to retain another attorney ,
