STATE OF ILLINOIS
PASSED AT THE ADJOURNED SESSION
TWENTY-EIGHTH GENERAL ASSEMBLY,
PUBLISHED BY AUTHORITY.
AUTHORIZING E. B. MYERS, OF CHICAGO, TO PUBLISH THE PUBLIC LAWS
AS PASSED AT EACH SESSION OF THE GENERAL
ASSEMBLY OF THIS STATE.
SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, represented in the General Assembly, That E. B. Myers, Law Book Publisher, of Chicago, be and is hereby authorized to publish such an edition of the Public Laws of the State of Illinois, passed at each Session of the General Assembly, as he may deem proper, and sell the same upon his own private account.
SEC, 2. Be it further enacted, That it shall be and is hereby made the duty of the Secretary of State to furnish on demand, the said E. B. Myers, immediately after the enrollment and deposit of the same in the office of the said Secretary of State, a true copy of each and every Public Law passed by the said General Assembly, at each and every Session, for which said service the said Secretary of State, for the time being, shall receive from the said E. B. Myers such compensation for the copies aforesaid as may be allowed by law for similar services.
SEC. 3. Be it further enacted, That all Public Laws published by the said E. B. Myers in pursuance of this Act, shall be and the same are hereby declared to be prima facie evidence of the existence of such Laws, in and before all Courts of Law and Equity in this State.
SEC. 4. This Act to take effect and be in force from and after its passage.
Under and pursuant to an act entitled “An act authorizing E. B. Myers, of Chicago, to publish the public laws as passed at each session of the general assembly of this state," approved February 16, 1865, I have hitherto published the aforesaid laws. The Twenty-eighth General Assembly, at its adjourned session, completed the revision of the statutes, and provided for their compilation and publication so as to furnish them at prices which defy competition. I had therefore almost determined not to publish the laws passed at such session, but the urgent calls for the acts of more general importance, especially in connection with my former publications, induced me to publish an edition to supply the immediate wants of the people, until the “ Revision " can be had from the state, which it is feared will not be before the first of October or November next. In making selection of the laws which are contained in this volume, I have taken the advice of some of the most eminent lawyers in the State; and I desire it to be distinctly understood that this volume does not contain all the laws passed at the adjourned session of the Twenty-eighth General Assembly, but only those of general and immediate importance. By referring to the TABLE OF CONTENTS, or SUMMARY OF LEGISLATION, immediately following this preface, and comparing them, it will be readily seen what is published in this volume and what acts have been omitted.
E. B. MYERS. Chicago, May 28, 1874.
