ILLINOIS MEN WIN BONUS
Supreme Court Upholds Act Providing

The close relation existing between
the services of the individual soldier
of the World war und tho general wel
fare of the state gives rise to n claim
appealing to a universal sense of fair
ness and Justice, declared the opinion
of the Supreme court of Illinois In up

The court was unanimous on tho con
stitutionality of the act and by this
decision paves tho way for KOO.OOO ex

The Illinois act provides for tho
payment of CO cents per day for each
duy of service in the nrmy, navy or

which any veteran may draw Is $:!00.
To pay the veterans a bond Issue of

about July 1, nnd that tho former sol

proximately 24,000 n month. Applica
tions to the number of L'liO.OOO are al
ready on Hie with the board.
The case In Supreme court, n
"friendly suit" brought by the father
of n Legion man of Springfield, III.,
attracted much attention. It was the
contention of the attorneys for the ap
pellants that the law violated the con
stitution by granting oxtrn compensa

The opinion of the court, written by
Chief Justice Thompson, nnd without
n dissenting vote, held that the recipi
ents of compensation In the case did
not come within this specification of
tho constitution. They, the opinion
said, do not stand In the relation of a
public olllcer, agent, servant or con
tractor of, or with the stnte, and "thnt
tho section has no application here."
The activity of the American Legion
In nsslstlng the securing of the passage
of the Illinois act Is well known. The
organization was called on to write
the act and was nt nil times active In
moving toward Its passage. On tho
eve of the election by which the voters
of the state approved the bond Issue
to pay compensation, the organization
staged n demonstration throughout tho
Btate thnt won thousands of votes.
Under advice of the Legion, the ruling
was made by the bonus board that all
service should be compensated at the
specified rate until 1020. Tho previous
acceptance had been for service ac
tually rendered before the armistice.

Conditions In Western Canada
Seeding Has Been Begun Earlier Than
for Many Years, and Soil Is
In Perfect Shape.
With weather conditions highly fa
vorable, the farmers of Western Can
udn, with the exception probably of
n portion of Manitoba, have completed
seeding from ten to fifteen days earlier
than for some years past. In some
pnrts of Manitoba there were Hoods
which delayed seeding, but they have
abated, and left the laud'ln good shape
for quick work and speedy germina
tion. In Saskatchewan soil conditions
for seeding were never better. With u
"onerous quuntlty of snow, which after
melting left needed moisture, and an
other snowstorm after seeding was
finished, there wns an Ideal condition
creuted. From all parts of Alberta
there came thu best of reports as to
rainfall und snow moisture, leaving tho
ground In the condition required for
the prospects of a good crop.
Spring, as In most other parts of the
continent, "was backward, but notwith
standing this, as has been said, farmers
were able to get on the land earlier
than for some years. In fact, seeding
wns practically commenced about tho
12th of April, which to many readers
may seem remarkable, when It Is
known that several hundred miles far
ther south It was not possible to do
spring seeding for several days later,
