Mr. Anderson submitted another, to ad journ from April 15 to Doe. 8. Mr. Dunham moved to mako it April 10, and Mr. Mosaic of fered a substitute, to adjourn from April 10 to Deo. 4. Air. Bbaw was in 'favor of staying till tho dog days, to enact railroad laws. Mr. Brad woll thought thoy ought to go homo, and relievo tho pooplo of tho burden. Air. Dunham was nearly of tho samo mind. Mr. Johnston said an adjournment on tho 10th would bo a practical adjournment at tho end of this week. Air. Hart, of LaSalle, on tho part of tho farmers, was against sotting a day till tho special orders on railroads and other im portant matters wore disposed of. Air. Mooro ■did not think thoy wore ready to adjounf, ond Mr. Aloffatt said ho would bo afraid to go homo without railroad legislation, Tho further con sideration of tho subject was postponed till Fri day. Tho dobnto indicates a weakness for an adjourned session. WORK IN TUB HOUSE. Tho House ordered to », third reeding tho Ohl 'cago aud United Slates Heal Estate Exchange bill, thoblll to give duplicates of tho State geo logical specimens to institutions of learning. Tho House slmck out tho ounoting clause of tho I’oltzor bill to ontabliub a Btato Board of .Examiug Surveyors. ~ LAKE FRONT INVESTIGATION RILL, Tbo bill providing for investigating tbo moans 'by'which Uio Lake Trout bill was passed camo up ns tbo special order in tbo House. when Hr. Race expressed his conviction that tbo bill was unnecessary, and moved to strike out tbo enact* lug clause.’ Mr. Grey was of tbo aamo opinion, .although bo believed men who wore opposed to Investigation woro likely to bo charged with fraud and corruption.* Ho behoved tbo bill un der consideration was introduced to spur on tho passage of tho bill repealing tbo Lake Front act. They should not take up i.ho time and money of tho , State to go buck four years to wash tho dirty linen of a preceding Legislature. They had already douo me ito than was asked by the people in passing the repealing bill through the House. Lot tbo parties interested do their own investigating, as it 'would bo a work of su pererogation for tbo La gislftturo to punish them with evidence of fraud that might or might not -vitiate contracts. Wh at would they do with men if they found them gu'ilty? It was not true that tfbu satellites of railroads woro around that House to prevent tbo passage of tbo bill. If they were, they bad little- influence against the pas sage of the repealing bill. Those who wanted investigation woro dinappointod in stealing tbo land themselves. His people wanted no such committee. Ho tliougbt somebody needed a summer's work. Mr, Bbnw boliovpd tbo hill not a ponular demand. Ho had no dosiro to act on* tbo fcom imitlco when raised. Tbo public and tbo press ’demanded an investigation. Charges of fraud woro reiterated day after day by tho press, and by gontlomon on that floor against tho Legisla ture that passed tbo iniquitous act. It was timo tbo repeal of tbo act bad passed the House, but bo predicted it would cover bocomo a law. Its repeal involved too much. It involved thorigbts of tbo pooplo of tho Btatq, of tho city of Chicago, and the titlo to $25,000,000 of pro perty. Ho behoved that tbo investigation could bo finished in two ’weeks at a cost of $2,500, Ho believed that tbo right of tbo railroads to tho laud was involved' in tbo question of fraud. Vested rights procrorod by fraud wore divested. Fraud violated all contracts. If fraud was de veloped it would 100 oon tbo grasp of tho corpo rations on tbo propo.-fjf, ami if no fraud was dis covered, tho pcoplo erf Illinois wouldrojoico to know that a Legislature of its Representatives •was purged of charges’ that reflected on public morality. Mr. wood, of Effingham, was in favor* of in vestigation, wborovor fraud was charged, if ony good could result; but bo could not't'eo wlioro tbo good was to como from in this case. Mr. Mooro, of Adams, thought tho ruoo who wore bought like stoors in tho market should bo exposed and hold up to public scorn, especially os some of them since wore candidates for office. Mr. Armstrong, of LaSalle, aakod why they did not go back to 1865, which was a notoriously corrupt year for Legislators. Tho State would not bo reimbursed for tho money tho investiga tion would cost. Mr. JnqucHH, of Wabash, boliovou it was duo to honest members of tho 1860 Legislature that their characters should bo vindicated, while tho guilty wove exposed and hold up as a warning to others. Public good demanded tho investiga tion, which should bo thorough. The motion to strike out was lost—ayes, 44 ; nays, 44. Mr. Grey moved to postpone future consider jition until Friday. Mr. Armstrong, of LaSallo, moved to lay tho bill on tho table. Lost—yeas, 41; nays, 40. Tho motion to postpone was lost, and the bill order ed to a third reading—sl to 88. farmers’ convention. .The use of tho hall was given to tho Fanners’! Convention for Wednesday evening. The fore noon session of tho convention will bo held in the Opera House. THE SENATE did nothing to-day but adjourn twico, for laclt of a quorum. ANTI-MONOPOLY. * | The House bill discussed House Dill No. 805, 1 introduced by Mr. Johnson, “ To define monopo lies in tbo internal trade and commerce of the State, and discourage the formation and coun tenance thereof,” intended to {prevent railroads owning coal-shafts from discriminating unfa vorably against owners of coal-shafts who do not own railroads.

Suita under this section shall bo commenced and prosecuted in tbo name of tho people, by Information, com plaint, or indictment, as tho practice of, the Court in which tho suit Is commenced may require. All Slato a Attorneys of this Btnto are charged.with the prosecu tion of all suits commenced under this section; and all Ones, when collected, shall bo paid Into tho County Treasury of tho county In which Iho suit may have been commenced, for the use of such county, “Pro vhieil, that service may bo mado In all actions com moncod under this section upon railroad companies, •express companies, and corporations, as now to. or ’hereafter may ho provided by for service in civil no- U< Beo. f».

An interesting discussion arose upon 800. 8 as to tboliobility of stockholders for the torts of a corporation, as provided in tbo first part of tbo sections which was stricken out, leaving it as printed above. Tho bill was ordered to a third reading. TESTIMONY IN CRIMINAL OASES. The following is tho bill for an net to enable parties and persons interested to testify in all criminal cases or proceedings: Section 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, represented in the General Aesembly, That no person shall bo disqualified as a witness in ony criminal case or proceeding by reason of his interest In the event of tho same, no a party or otherwise, or by reason of his having been convicted of any crime; but such Interest or conviction may bo shown for the pur pose of affecting his credibility.

GENERAL REMARKS. Tbo House opened tbo week without a quorum. It'took half an hour to gather in tbo constitutional number, and tbo Senate went to work without tbo legal majority called for by tbo Constitution. Absenteeism is tbo curse of this Legislature, and . has already prolonged tho session three weeks. On Wednesday tbo Rail road bills will be considered, and on Thursday tbo Rivor bill takes its final chance. Tbovoto will bo very • close, but if all who aro friendly to the measure aro boro it will pass. Tbo absence of ouo man may cause defeat,.aud postpone indefinitely the pro- Eosod improvements, ■ All tbo water in tbo liinois River will not waob-away tbo sin of ab sence, on Thursday, if tho bill is defeated. INEBRIATE ASYLUM. The Committee on Public Charities, through Dti. IkSCUjTOpuUUU IWlviuvij. —. ,V. «'•»» i. „ tabilah an Inobriato Asylum to bo maintained out of a fund supplied by annual tax of $lO on evory person or corporation manufacturing or soiling liquors. There is to bo » commission of three S arsons to tako charge of tbo institution, to rout uildings, biro officiate, and bavo a general super vision of tbo reformatory process. Mr. way man desired to tablo ibo bill, but tbo House re fused, and it was printed. STATIONERY, A bill was introduced to pav Mr.Harts, tho for tunate stationer at whoso shop incidental stati onery is purchased, tho sum of $3,900. This stationery business needs watering. PERSONAL. Tho Hon. Edward Taylor, who was a member of tho House in 1869, has arrived. Ho is here on general principles, and to look after tho interest of Lincoln Park, thongh thoro are wicked men who intimate that ho is one of tho railroad janis saria3 interested in defeating tho Lake Front repealing bill. Hon, A. L. Morrison has withdrawn from his candidacy for Penitentiary Commissioner. VALUE OF THE ENACTING CLAUSE. The House discussed tho Estray law, when a motion was made to alrlko out tho onaotiug clause. Mr. Wayman, of Oook, innocently in quired, after being in tho Legislature three months, what olfeot striking out the clause would have. The Speaker illuminated him by stating that it would kill the bill as dead aa a herring. This valuable information is printed for tho benefit of other gentlemen who are ignorant of .the importance of the clause. Tho bill was or dered to a third reading. It is probable that the Williamson warehouse amendment bill will pass tho Senate tlpa week, and go through tho Houso without unuouesßary delay, Being intended to rclievetho grain trade from arbitrary inspection and indexible grading, it should moot with no opposition. MINES AND MINING. Mr. Day tho intelligent Chairman of the Com mittee on Minos and Muring, prepared tho fol lowing report, which tho House concurred in: The act entitled “An act providing for the health and eafetyof persons employed in coar mines,” ap proved March 37,1873, constituted County surveyors ex-olHcio Inspectors of Miuos within their respective counties, and made it their duty to make an annual report of tho condition of tho mines to tbs Governor, Section 13 of tho said act provides as follows: Seo. 12, Tho Inspector provided for under this act •hall sco that every necessary precaution is taken to in sure tho health and safety of tho workingmen therein employed ; that tbo provisions and requirements of this act shall bo faithfully observed and obeyed, and and the ponaltlea of tho law enforced against all who willfully disobey its requirements. Ho shall also col lect and tabulate the following facts, tbat la to say : The uumber of acres of workable coal lands in his county : tho number and thickness of tho coal bods, ami their respective depths below tho surface : how they are mined, whether by shaft, slope, or drift; tho number of mines In operation, tho number of men employed therein, and tho aggregate yearly production in tons; together with an estimate of tho amount of capital employed in coal mining la his county, and any other information relative to coal mining that ho may deem necessary; all of which facts, so tabulated, together with a statement of the condition of the mines as to safely and ventilation, and tho gen eral result of his examination luto the causes of all ac cidents in aud about tho coal mines and collieries of his county, be shall fully set forth in an annual report to tho Governor, with his recommendation as to such other legislation on tlds subject as may bo proper. Your Committee recognizing the vastness and im portance ol the coal interests of tho State, and realizing the value of such statistical information as is intended to bo obtained under tho act referred to, deeply regret their inability, at tills session, to present a report embodying tho facts desired. Of tho seventy flvo coal bearing counties of this State, reports have been received from but nine, viz: Jackson, LaSalle, Madlnou, McLean, Macoupin, Menard, Randolph. Rock Island, and St. Glair. Tho area of tho coal fields of Illinois is four times greater than that of Great Britain, where tho annual product exceeds 100,000,000 tons, aud whore the value of coal exported annually aggregates about $10,000,000. This fact fa in itself convincing proof of the present aud prospective importance of the coal Interests of Illinois—futcresta that claim und deserves such legis lation as will boat enhance them—and believing that those interests can bo best suttaerved through tho possession of such statistical facts and suggestions as are called for under the act referred to. your com mittee recommend tho adoption of tho following reso lutions: Jlesolved, That Comity Surveyors throughout tho fltnto aro earnestly urged to comply with tho provisions of tbo “ act providing for the health aud safety of per sons employed lu coal mines, 1 ’ approved March 27, 1872, aud that they bo requested to transmit (heir re ports to tho Governor by tho Ist day of January, 1871. JlesclveJ, That the Secretary of Htato bo requested to transmit, as soon aa may bo. to each County Surveyor contemplated in the act above referred to, & primed copy of this report end tho act to which It relates, to gether with printed blanks, for tabulating in a uniform manner, the statistics enumerated lu Hoc. 12 of uald act. THE PDDLIO PRINTING. Tho bill to provide employment for two raon In'tho Auditor's oflico, at 98 a day each, for I'lll.v i'llli'AViA lull V wimirwu. WtTW«Jr»AV a trot? i Tcm THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: TUESDAY, ABRIL 1, 1873. estimating tbo public printing, reading proof, and so forth, tbo work now performed at $5 a day by ouo man, was reported on favorably by tbo Bonato Printing Committee. It is a long bill, called a printing law, Identical in Us main features with tho present law, but gotten up to confer BluoouroH on gentlemen who wore de prived of thorn when tbo present law was enact ed. Tbo bill also proposes to allow all tho Stato ofllcora to order printing without going through tho Secretary of State's ofllco. thus dividing tbo responsibility, and increasing tbo tempta tion to extravagance, already strong enough. • If tbo present law needs amendment, and can bo improved, why not amend and improve it. This would hnvo boon attempted in tho present In stance. but that It would bo too barofacod to in sert a potty steal of $lO, and nothing else. Mr. Brodwoll is preparing a bill curtailing tbo quan tity of tbo public printing, cutting down tbo re ports of tho dliToront institutions, and prohibit ing tbo printing of much of tbo useless trash now embalmed in typo at groat oxpouso to tbo State. Such a kill would bo a publfo benefit. TIPPLING OFFICE-HOLDERS, ATTENTION.
