HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION No. 11. WHEREAS, The State Senate is a relic of past ages, a useless imitation of the British House of Lords, whose power has been, practically, abrogated; and,

WHEREAS, A Legislature consisting of two Houses doubles the opportunity and temptation for trading and log-rolling, for legislative delay, fraud, fail. ure, extravagant appropriations, and general inefficiency, and at the same time makes it difficult to fix the responsibility for these evils; and,

WHEREAS, A One-House Legislature would put an end to the practice of passing bills in one House and killing them in another, and enable the people of this State to place the responsibility for failure to enact just and proper laws where it rightfully belongs; therefore, be it

Resolved, by the House of Representatives of the State of Illinois, the Senate concurring herein, That there shall be submitted to the electors of this State, for adoption or rejection, at the next election of members of the General Assembly, a proposition to amend Article IV of the Constitution of this State by adding thereto a section to be designated as section 35, and reading as follows:

SEC. 35. The Senate and the office of Senator in the General Assembly of the State of Illinois are hereby abolished. All provisions of the Constitu. tion and laws of Illinois in conflict with this section are hereby abrogated and repealed in so far as they conflict herewith. This section is in all respects self-executing and immediately operative.

James S. McCullough, lied at his home in Urbana, Champaign County, Illinois, on the 22d day of June, A. D. 1914; and,

WHEREAS, The Hon. James S. McCullough was a man of unblemished character and of the highest integrity as a public official, a private citizen and a soldier of the Civil War, having suffered the loss of his left arm, in the defense of his country, at Fort Blakely in 1865, and later serving his county from 1873 to 1896 as county clerk, and the State of Illinois as Auditor of Public Accounts for four consecutive terms; and,

WHEREAS, It is the desire of this body to render appropriate tribute to his memory by recognizing his untiring energy, his devotion to duty, his splendid ability and his sterling worth as a man and as a citizen of this State; therefore, be it

Resolved, by the House of Representatives of the Forty-ninth General Assembly, That as a public acknowledgment of his distinguished services and as a token of the respect in which he was held by the citizens of Illinois, we extend to the family and friends our sincere condolence; and, be it further

Resolved, That this preamble and resolution be spread upon the Journal, that a suitably engrossed copy thereof be forwarded to the family, and as a further mark of respect to his memory, that the House do now adjourn.
