GOVERNOR'S VETO MESSAGE.
State of ILLINors,
Executive DEPARTMENT,
SPRING Field June, 29, 1915.

To the Honorable, the House of Representatives of the General Assembly of Illinois:

I return herewith, House Bill No. 885, “An Act to provide for the payment of fifty per cent of the expense, costs and charges for burying, disinfecting remises, disinfectants, serum, certain claims for animals slaughtered, and assistant veterinarians' services, paid out and provided on account of the slaughter of live stock to suppress the foot and mouth disease, and to make an appropriation therefor,” and veto and withhold my approval from the following item and amount therein contained:

In section 1, item: “To Great Western Serum Company, Chicago, Ills., $9,788.66.” I veto this item on advice of the State Veterinarian, Dr. O. E. Dyson, a copy of whose letter is attached hereto and made a part hereof.

Respectsully submitted, E. F. DUNNE, Governor

June 28, 1915.

Hon. Edward F. Dunne, Governor, State of Illinois, Springfield, Illinois:

DEAR SIR: I have examined House Bill No. 885 and the various items contained therein, all of which I consider valid claims against the State with the exception of the item covering the payment of $9,788.66 to the Great Western Serum Company for the alleged destruction of serum by State and Federal authorities.

In this connection I beg to advise that a portion of the serum in question was held by the Federal authorities pending a test to determine whether or not the serum so held was insected with the contagion of foot and mouth disease. During the interim, however, owing to bacterial contamination during its preparation and the lack of proper cold storage facilities, the serum so held underwent a putrefactive decomposition and became worthless. The remainder of the item under the caption of serum destroyed covered an estimate of the amount of serum in the blood of hogs slaughtered on account of being affected with or known to have been exposed to the contagion of foot and mouth disease. Full payment, amounting to $5,573.22 representing 50 per cent of the value of the hogs so slaughtered, was made under the provisions of House Bill No. 415.

The Federal authorities refuse to recognize the validity of the claim made by the Great Western Serum Company for losses sustained, the payment of which would establish a precedent for the soling of innumo: claims of a similar nature, which in the aggregate would amount to thousands upon thousands of

oliars.

Very truly yours
ery y y r O. E. Dyson, State Veterinarian.

(House BILL No. 979. Approved JUNE 29, 1915.)

AN ACT making an appropriation for the payment of the expense, costs and charges for destruction of property, burying, disinfecting premises, disinfectants, certain claims for animals slaughtered, for the rendition of services and labor and assistant veterinarian's services paid out and provided on account of the slaughter of live stock to suppress the footand-mouth disease. WHEREAs, A contagious and infectious disease known as foot-andmouth disease, to which cattle, sheep, other ruminants and swine are highly susceptible, has been prevalent in Illinois (as well as many other states) since November 1, 1914; and WHEREAs. The fact has been determined that the only effective means of eradicating said disease is by the slaughter of all animals lood with or known to have been exposed to the contagion thereof; an WHEREAS, In order to protect the live stock interests within the State, as well as those of the country at large, many residents of the State have been compelled to subject cattle, sheep, and swine to slaughter in order to facilitate the complete eradication of foot-and-mouth disease within the State; and WHEREAs, In the eradication of said disease it became necessary to destroy property, to bury live stock, build trenches, disinfect the premises where such disease occurred and other places, purchase and procure disinfectants, and to procure and have the services of veterinarians and to incur other expenses and charges in that behalf; and WHEREAs, The United States Government has paid or provided for the payment of one hundred per cent (100%) in full in many instances, and in others of fifty per cent (50%) of the losses sustained on account of the slaughter of such live stock, and of one hundred per cent (100%) in full in many instances, and in others fifty per cent (50%) of a large number of claims for burying, disinfecting, disinfectants and veterinaians' services, as aforesaid, and it is just and equitable that the State should contribute like amounts respectively and proportionately to the payments of such claims, and that in certain cases the State should pay the full amount of costs, damages and charges as hereinafter set forth; and WHEREAs, The claims hereinafter mentioned have been presented since the 6th day of May, 1915, subsequent to the introduction of a certain bill (House Bill No. 885) which did not provide for the contingencies and claims herein contained; 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 twenty-four thousand, one hundred twenty-four and 97/100 dollars ($124,124.97), or so much thereof as shall be necessary, be, and the same is hereby appropriated out of any funds in the State treasury not otherwise appropriated, to reimburse and pay the damages, advances, costs, charges and expenses incurred for digging trenches, burying live stock, disinfecting premises, and other property, and for property necessarily destroyed and live stock slaughtered, as hereinafter set forth, in the eradication of said disease; for disinfectants, for the rendition of services and labor, and for veterinarians’ services, and the full amount of certain claims and expenses necessarily incurred by the State of Illinois, as hereinafter set forth, for the suppression of the foot-andmouth disease, in accordance with the report of the State Board of Live Stock Commissioners of the State of Illinois and the Bureau of Animal Industry of the United States, presented herewith to the following named persons in the several and respective sums as hereinafter stated, to-wit:
