Is the law .professing to rodla trict the State into judicial circuits without an emergency clanse, conatitU' tlohal? - ;. 3. .Does the elgniture of the Govern or to a bill passed by the . General Aa- sembly without an emergency clause give life to the bill to such an extent that any part of it may be executed before the first day of July after Its pas sage? . •..—-.: The contention of the petitioners is that the Legislature which .convened in January, 1897, cannot pass a constitutional reapportionment of the State into Judicial circuits unless it does so under an emergency clause, and hence the so-called Teapportionmeat passed April 23, 1897, without the emergency clause, cannot be operative because it ia unconstitutional. The reapportion mentto be legal without the emergency clause should have been passed by. the Legislature of 1895.

GOOD,_ For the X.argeit Fruit Crop In the History of Illinois This Year. The assertion is a very ,Bafe one to make that Illinois will gather this season the largest crop of fruit ever known in her history. The orchards are all in most promising condition. From the fact that February and March have passed a way without any "warm spell," the buds have not awol Jen so as to render the blossoms liable to be caught by any late frost which may happen to occur, as it did in so many localities last spring. '; / This is a most favorable 'condition and upon this can be baoed the' prediction of a successful fruit gathering. - '- ' -'•>' V .' :-•' ",.:•'.: i 'It . •• J, ;-..'••; >' • .i\-i^.-:- v ; / >.- ; !:-<^.; 1 ,- : • ,..• .•'.:•: ''' DELUGE .OF Weakened Price* for. £ very thing; But the • • Very Best Uuslnoea.
