Tax Levy Also Said to Be Short of the Requirements. Prospect That the Majority May Decide to Take a Recess Untir Next Fall. Springfield. UL. Judo 18. GoTernor Alt- geld today surprised nearly every one connected with the State administration, and nearly every citizen of the State as well, by Issuing a proclamation calling an extra session of the Legislature, to meet June 25 at 3 o'clock In thd afternoon. The document Is one of the most Important ever Issued by an executive bt this State, and the extra session. It Is said, will have more work to perforin than any previous extra session since Illinois became a State. The call mentions eleven subjects upon which the Legislature can act. Beyond these It can do nothing. The proclamation is as State of Illinois, Executive Department. Spring field, 111. To the members oi me kmw .k. II,,,,.. nf Renreaentatlves. constituting the General Assembly of the State of Illinois, and to all other persons whom It msy concern. Sin ke Tax levy Is Too Low. Gentlemen: Aside from the $2,900,000 which the law requires to be levied and collected for school purposes, the General Assembly has made appropriations for various purposes to be expended during the next two fiscal years amounting to about $7,600,000. The Income from the Illinois Central Railway and from the various 8tate office and other sources during these iwo years " will be about $1,600,000, thus leaving about $6,000.-00 to be raised by taxation. Tet In spite of this fact . the General Assembly has authorized a tax levy of only $2,600,000 a year, or $3,000,000 for ' the two years, thus forcing a shortage of $1,000,-000 in the State treasury and doing so by legislation. I cannot understand this method of financiering, and I submit that the good name and credit of this great sad wealthy State should not be thus trifled with, neither for partisan nor for any other purpose. . If any of these appropriations are for Improper purposes then they should not have been made; but having been made both the honor of the State aad good business methods require that the money be raised to pay. them. . So far aa I am advised, the appropriations as a whole are all right, and are necessary to promote the welfare of the State: and considering the fact that $300,000 had to be appropriated to pay the expense of suppressing the riots of 1894 and of rebuilding the Anna asylum they are not ex-travarant, but compare very favorably with those of prior sessions. In tact, those made for State government purposes are lower In proportion to the work to be done than they ever have been In the history of the State. At present the affairs of the 8tate are, as a rule. In splendid order, and. notwithstanding all that has been said to the contrary for partisan purposes, the State treas ury la la excellent condition, and can be kept so If the General Assembly will permit a tax levy for a sufficient sum to meet the appropriations which the General Assembly haa Itself Topics to Be Considered. Again, when the last General Assembly began early In January, there were a number of questions Ti tally affecting the welfare of our people which demanded legislation. After being in session upward of five months the General Assembly haa adjourned without taking action on these Important measures. z. The State has demanded a revision of the revenue law. becaose at present a very large proportion of the wealth of the State escapes all taxation and the burdens of government fall heavily en the people of moderate means. 8- The people demanded a State board of equalisation that would not shield certain great corporations from taxation. 4. A class of abuses has grown up in the Justice nd police courts of larger cities which have for years been called infamous. 6. Chicago has over 1.500,000 Inhabitants, la one of the great commercial centers of the world, snd has one of the most expensive Judicial systems to be found, and yet Its citizens have practically to submit to a denial of Justice because it takes almost half a generation to get through with a lawsuit because of a bad system. t- Since the recent decision of the Supreme Court relating to the factory inspection law thousands of children under It years of age are being eroweed into factories sad stores, often doing the work of adults for a pittance, stunting their Uvea and growing up to be Inferior men aad women, and yet nothing has been done te prevent this degeneration. 1st the Interests of Labor. 7. A year ago one of the large employers of the State went to the sea shore snd the Thousand Islands while his men were on strike, snd It cost the city of Chicago and the State a very largo . sum of money to protect his property, aad the Ftate could not even Inquire into the cause of the trouble. As we have one of the greatest industrial States In the world and similar conditions constantly arise the public demanded some measure of conciliation snd Inquiry In regard to the cause of the trouble In such eases, a mild measure wsa proposed, but ths corporation lobbyists objected aad the public, which pays ths bills, is left helpless. heavy enoogh to reduce the general average of a. Sleeping ears are as much of a necessity to the business traveling public as are railroads. While railroad charges hsve fsllen more than a third, with a reduction of business, aad while the prices of other things hsve fsllen. sleeping car charges are practically as high ss they ever were, although the business bss Increased more then fivefold. Justice calls for relief from this extortion snd for a reasonable regulation, such as exists In regard to railroads, but ths monopoly objected, and no relief has been given. . At present a few individuals can select and thus practically pack a grand Jury In Chicago, so that a few men have It la their power to shield some offenders, snd also to cause a grand Jury to carry out partisan schemes. Consequently the grand Juries of Cook County have been used repeatedly In recent years to Influence public sentiment with reference to a prospective election by Indicting upward of one hundred men on sen- . satlonal charges, and when the elections were over snd the public bad lost Interest In the nutter the cases were all thrown out of court becama nothing could be proven. This method of prostituting the machinery . of the court should be stopped and the law should be so changed that It will not be In the power of a few men to name ana control a graaa jury. Employ-sweat for Cows-lets. 10. Although the General Assembly was In session over five months. It did nothing toward fnrther solving the prison labor problem, but on the last day of the session It spproved a report of a committee recommending the adoption of a system said to prevail In Kew York, thus apparently taking a position on the subject without assuming any responsibility. Now, if the New York system, or any other. Is really better thaa ours, then steps should hsve been taken to adopt it. Now the time has come when those millionaires snd great corporations of the State which pay Continued oa Seveath PajzeU MARRIED AT OCOXOMOWOC. Mlsa Grace ttoald Deceases the Wife of Heary W.

Plan on Foot to Locate It on the "West Side. UNION PARK FAVORED Aldermen Are Talking of the Scheme. President Healy Says They Either Vacate or Pay Rent. Must There is a serious plan on foot to move the City Hall. The aldermen are talking of It, and before the aummer vacation la taken an ordinance to that effect will be Introduced in the Council.' It la not the intention to put the huge pile at the corner of Washington and La Salle streets on rollers and push it away, but to erect a new and more commodious building In some other locality in which to provide space for the transaction of city business. There are many reasons assigned for the mooted change.. The extreme West Side aldermen say the center of Chicago Is in the vicinity of Colon Park, while the aldermen from the southwest and outlying wards want the new building put somewhere in the vicinity of Twelfth and Halsted streets. Another reason for the proposed change ia that the city may soon be forced either to move or pay rent The county claims tne land upon which the City Hall stands. - A suit Is now pending in the Supreme Court In regard to the title. It waa fully argued at the March term, and one of the Supreme Judges la to deliver the decision this month. Csssty Clalaae tbo Load. . From a very reliable source tt was learned yesterday that thia decision had been fully prepared. A certain Circuit Judge has seen it and ia authority for the statement that it decides the City Hall ground belongs to the county. This will place the ownership In the bands of the County Board, which will demand a high rental for the property. Rather than pay something In the neighborhood of $300,-000 a year, it is said, the aldermen will either purchase a new site or erect a modern building In one of the near-by West Side parks. This question haa been quietly agitated among the aldermen for some time. Alderman O'Neill, a few weeks ago, introduced an order for estimates as to the cost of renovating the building. It la now said that In going over the City Hall, preparatory to making tbe estimate, City Architect. Watson has fonnd that it would take almost aa much money to put the huge pile In thorough order aa It would to erect a new structure. Cracks la the West WalL In the west wall. Just at the mayor'a office, and extending from the roof cornice to the basement, are two large fissures, and in several other places the atone haa spilt .and chipped off. To properly correct the settling of the building, it ia said, the entire underpinning and superstructure must be rebuilt, and this, it ia claimed, will coat a fortune. City Architect Watson refused to say anything on the subject yesterday, as he said his report waa uncompleted. Alderman Campbell, chairman of the wharves and public grounds committee, said: "I am in favor of putting up a new City Hall on the West Side. Union Park la the center of the city, and It should go out there. The present locality la too congested. We need a new building and the West Side wauts it." Waat It oa the West Side. Alderman Utesch, of the Thirty-First Ward, aald he bad been approached on the scheme and favored removing the city's business. The City Hall Is too far north." said be. "Business la rapidly running south and west, and tbe city should take the initiative. I am in favor of placing the new building on the West Side, south of Madison street, and near Halsted street. About Halsted and Twelfth streets would be the proper location. If the hall la moved the present congested condition of this part of town would be removed. It would spread out the business and relieve some of the pressure on the building of sky-scrapers." Alderman Noble said: . "I would favor .a plan to move the City Hall. I think all of the aldermen except those of the South and North towna would also be with the proposition. We need a new building, and I am with the West Side." President Healy, cf the county board, said: "The City Hall will have to move. The county owna the ground, and haa the title deed beyond the shadow of a doubt. I think we will get a decision from the Supreme Court in a few daya, and I believe It will confirm the county's ownership. Then If the city doesnt want to move it must pay rent." A similar plan for locating the City Hall waa agitated about fifteen years ago. It waa then proposed to build at the corner of Madison and Sangamon streets. . - . ROBERT CRAC ARRESTED.

The movement Is growing constantly .and reflects a deep-seated conviction among the people that aa Increase la the primary or redemption money of the government Is necessary to restore prices aad save the property of tbe debtors from passing Into the hands of the creditors. The question has essoined sa importance with the people far beyond mere allegiance to parties, and the feeling Is such as results from a conviction that the Republic itself Is ia danger. It Is Abbobk the People. Political leaders as a rale, however. In the two old parties are trying to keep the question down and save their parties from disruption. The silver movement is among the people and not to any great extent among politician a. A vote taken here by the Morning Record of legally authorized city voters, closing yesterday, at which about 13.000 votes were polled, showed nearly two to one in favor of free coinage and independent action of this government. The agricultural papers published In this city are all for free coinage and Independent action, and elalra that a vote outside of the large cities will give a result of four to one In favor of that policy. ' . Congressman-Elect Towns, of Duluth. Minn, who passed throagh here yesterday en route to the Cleveland convention, tells me that he and other Republicans of Minnesota will at an early data call a convention la hla State similar to the Democratic free coinage convention that was recently held In this State. He further says that the movement Is spreading in the Northwest, that nothing can stop it. snd that ha and his people-believe that liberty Itself Is Involved in the Issue. Similarly reliable Information Indicates conventions in- all the States from Indiana west. A mass meeting to continue for one week Is being arranged for at Nashville. Tensu. for September. . My mail Indicates the greatest number of conversions of any one class to be smong the clergymen, and in tha next six months with a large number of people the movement will assume a religions form. - This Is to be accounted for when yon understand that those who have gotten at the bottom of thia question consider that a great moral wrong was committed when silver, the money of ths people, was deprived of its legs! tender and redemption qualities, and these powers given to gold alone, which has sines been cornered by the money changers, who are responsible for what Is regarded ss a crime in destroying silver as real money. It is a blow at the Integrity of the Nation, and Is regarded ss a national crime. Prominent Republicans snd Democrats from several States in the central West and South, who expect to be delegates st the next national conventions, tell me they will bolt their conventions If a platform Is sdopted that straddles or compromises on tbe subject. Our people will understand tbat the money power acUng In concert is making money easy purposely aad doing all it can to boom business, and will keep It up till the election next year If it can keep the Rothschild gold syndicate behind the government that long. And the people also understand that the same power that Is doing this can crush business by making money tight whenever It sees lit to do so. Ws Intend to free ourselves from such s financial system. The strength of the silver movement is that the people are generally educated on the subject and cannot be again deceived by the usual stock arguments or sny sharp practice that may be resorted to for the purpose of misleading them. . The question also haa a deeper significance. A majority of the people regard It as a choice between an English and an American policy. That the success of the gold standard means the Introduction Into this country of the most harmful features that accompany a moneyed aristocracy in control of the government. As a summsry: You may expect In the next six months numerous conventions and mass meeUngs in the West and South, including a national Democratic convention snd a national Republican convention. The movement will not down till we have freed tbe United States from the influence of plutocracy, re-established the Republic on the founda tion intended for It by Jefferson and Lincoln, and extended a friendly hand to all tha liberty-loving people of the Western Hemisphere!

ADDRESS DRAWII UP- Draft to Be Presented to the National Republican League. DEALS IN HARD FACTS Democratic Maladministration la Reviewed at Length. SHARP CONTRAST MADE. Benefits of Republican Poicie3 - Shown Therein. Delegates Flocking; to Cleveland to Transact the Business of the " Convention. Cleveland, Ohio,' June 18. Special Telegram. The following is a draft of a declaration which haa been considered by leading delegates to tbe national convention of the League of Republican. Clubs, and which will be submitted tomorrow to the committee on resolutions, consisting of an Important state-. , ment of Republican doctrine, reciting the . Democratic record, reaffirming the principles of the Republican party, and pledging the . convention to aid in their adoption by the . people of the United States in 1S6: Address to the People of the United States-Fellow Citizens: While this convention of Re publican League chins is not assembled to forma- -' late new doctrines for the Republican ' party, but to maintain aad perfect the organisation f ' its working forces and to help prepare the way for Its certain return to power In ISSi, it seems to be proper to congratulate the country oa tbe magnificent achievements of the hut tara-paign. and to note some, of the-causes which led tc the political earthquake of ISM. . Worst Predlctleaa Verlded. Two years more of Grover Cleveland, with a ' Democratic Congress to help him, hsve been suf- -ficient to verify the very worst 'predictions of Democratic Incompetency, and to give the people aa object' lesson in national disaster which ought to suffice, at least, for the present generation. This Democratic party, while impudently declaring that K is the only one that has ever -given to the country a foreign policy consistent ' and vigorous, compelling respect sbrosd snd eon- -fidence at home, has. In fact, achieved a policy which, beginning in secret attempts to restate a ' dethroned queen aad re-establish aa overturned monarchy, so continued ss to make oar traditional Monroe doctrine a laughing stock -for the. world; a policy which ordered the Ameil-. can flag to -be hauled down at Honolulu., and consented to hsve the English flag hoisted ever Kicaraguaa soli at Corinte; a. policy which repealed reciprocity treaties without the courtesy of notice to friendly powers, giving Juet cause of offense to our fastest friends; a policy commanding contempt abroad, and execration at home. Thia Democratic party baa adopted a financial policy the bare announcement of which. :wita snccess st the polls, wss sufficient to shot the doors of our factories and workshops, and to stop the wheels of our commerce on land and sea, producing the most widespread and. protracted disaster and ruin the country has ever experienced, snd before which It stood la help-" less imbecility, a disaster before which the Democratic panics of 1857 and 1S37 were but child's play. And yet with a blind obstinacy ft persisted ia Its declared purpose, repealing s tariff which haa afforded sufficient revenue and protected American capital and labor, substituting a law avowedly drawn upon free-trade lines' sad creating a deficiency of $70,000,000 a year. ;. Beaded Debt Vastly laereaaed. In so doing it has already accomplished aa Increase of the bonded debt of $163,000,000. entailing a burden of interest for thirty years which will amount to over $300,000,000. la addition to the principal, and this with the certainty of a farther issue of bonds before relief can be obtained. This bss been accompanied with such manage- ment of the treasury ss openly confesses in ability to protect tbe gold reserves, snd pays tribute to a foreign syndicate to secure exemption from further raids. r This Democratic party, after having for years denounced tbe continuance of "war taxes In time of peace," notwithstanding the war debt and war pensions required their continuance to son- ply the needs of the teasury. no sooner cornea Into complete legislative power thaa It changes front, announces its purpose to reverse the policy which the country has pursued for s hundred . years, to abandon dependence oa the tariff aa the permanent source of revenue for current expenses, and to adopt the internal system of war taxes Instead; and it gives earnest of Its purpose by adopting a purely sectional, odious, and unconstitutional income tax, aa declared by our highest judicial tribunal. 4 . - Pabile Office m Private Saap. - This Democratic party, with a aational platform declaring that- "public office Is a pabllo trust," supports an administration which distributes public offices ss a bribe to Induce mem-, bers of Congress to vots against their own per- sons! convictions, and la defiance of the wishes of their constituents, thus demonstrating that Its t f .Kb. "miKIU mMha 1 ...... . . . 11 . ' ... jniwuv VIUL, . . and justifying the descriptive phrase of George WUllam Curtis that It Is simply Vn organized sppetite." - This Democratic party, with a national platform declaring in favor of "a just and liberal system of pensions." Inducts an administration of the pension bureau which treats every soldier who applies for pension as a dead-beat, only latent on plundering the treasury. exacUng from him. la support of his claim, evidence more rigid than In a court of law is required to con-vjet a murderer; which treats every widow ss a mistress, requiring her to prove otherwise by evidence such as was never demsnded In a civilized court, and which shows love for and liberality toward Cnlon soldiers by In one year striking off the pension roll 30,000 names, oa the ground that they were placed there by s Republican administration under a too liberal in terpretation of tbe law. - Debaaehlasr of the Ballot, i This Democratic party, denouncing national election laws ss outrsges on local rights of suf frage, manifests Its own disregard for fair elec tions and honest returns by keeping up a solid South through Infamous. State laws, snd more Infamous election methods, aa exemplified in the returns of the last Presidential election, st which returns were msde of only CO per cent of the legal vote of Georgia. 4i per cent ot that of Mississippi, and $0 per Tent of that of South " Carolms. at which seven States elected sixty- legal vote. No wonder it deprecates national laws for the protection ot freedom and hucesty of tho ballot box. especially when the penitentiaries of nearly every free State has fumuhed cells tor more or less of its election officers. This Democratic -pa ty pursues x uior.i tsry t policy. v.h;ch-rcji:liig la its natlcud
