Preamble.

CHARITABLE-ANNA STATE HOSPITAL, WATER SUPPLY.

§ 1. Appropriates $135,000.

§ 2. Emergency

(HOUSE BILL NO. 312. APPROVED JUNE 2,.1911.)

AN ACT making an appropriation for a water supply for the Anna State Hospital.

WHEREAS, During the months of March, April and May, 1910, an epidemic of typhoid fever appeared among the employés and patients of the Anna State Hospital, causing approximately forty (40) deaths in excess of the normal rate; and,

WHEREAS, Analysis of the then water supply at the hospital condemned the same for drinking purposes, the same being polluted so that since that time all the water used in said hospital for drinking and culinary purposes must be rendered harmless at considerable expense, and even then it is impossible to prevent patients at times from drinking of the water in its polluted state thereby incurring the risk of a further epidemic of typhoid fever; and,

WHEREAS, The wells now sunk being seven in number, the last of which was sunk and equipped under an appropriation for water supply made by the General Assembly in 1909, have not procured a supply either adequate or fit for the uses of said hospital, such wells having exhausted the source of supply which falls far short of that needed by the hospital; and,

WHEREAS, The further sources of water supply in sufficient quantities and healthful condition on the institution grounds, the vicinity thereof, or elsewhere on the uplands in the country about said hospital will not prove adequate to the indispensable needs of such hospital, as shown by investigation thereof and that an examination of the sources of water supply in the Mississippi river bottom, distant about nine miles from the hospital, shows an adequate supply of pure water accessible at that point sufficient not only for the present, but for all future. needs of such hospital, and such supply being of that vital character for the life, safety and care of the inmates, officers and employés of the institution so as to render such water supply imperative to the continued uses of such hospital as an institution for the care and treatment of the insane; now, therefore,

SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, represented in the General Assembly: That the sum of one hundred thirtyfive thousand (135,000) dollars, or so much thereof as may be necessary, be and the same is hereby appropriated to the Board of Administration for the purposes of installing, equipping and putting into operation a system of water supply at the Anna State Hospital, which shall

provide an adequate supply of pure water for the use of said hospital, such appropriation to provide for all pipe line or lines from the Mississippi river bottom at the nearest accessible source of water supply, pumping station, machinery, reservoirs, and all other appurtenances and equipments which shall be necessary and proper for the foregoing purposes, including the requisite land for the site, location of wells, pipe line or lines and the right of way for the laying of such pipe line or lines. If the Board of Administration shall be unable to agree with the owner or owners for the purchase of any real estate, right of way, franchise or right of entry required for the purposes of securing said water supply, said Board of Administration may acquire the title to such real estate, right of way, franchise or right of entry in the manner that may be now or hereafter provided for under and by virtue of an Act entitled, "An Act to provide for the exercise of the right of eminent domain." Approved April 10, 1872, and all Acts amendatory thereto. All money herein appropriated shall be due and payable to the Board of Administration or its order only on the terms and in the manner provided in an Act entitled, "An Act to revise the laws relating to charities and making an appropriation to carry out the provisions thereof." Approved June 15, 1909.

§ 2. WHEREAS, An emergency exists because of the several matters set forth in the preamble hereof, now, therefore, this Act shall be in force from and after its passage and approval.

APPROVED June 2, 1911.
