ADMINISTRATION AND WAREHOUSE REGISTRA.

TION.

Exctracts from the rules adopted by the Railroad and Warehouse Commissioners for the administration of the departments of grain inspection and warehouse registration in the city of Chicago in force from and after December 3, 1887.

[blocks in formation]

“The said Chief Inspector, and all persons inspecting grain under his direction, shall in no case make the grade of the grain above that of the poorest quality found in any lot of grain inspected, when it has evidently been "plugged," or otherwise improperly “loaded," for the purpose of deception. Wheat which has been subjected to "scouring,” or to some process equivalent thereto, shall not be graded higher than No. 3.”

"All persons employed in the inspection of grain shall promptly report to the Chief Inspector, in writing, all attempts to defraud the system of grain inspection established by law, and all instances where warehousemen shall deliver, or attempt to deliver, grain of a lower grade than that called for by the warehouse receipt.”

“ They shall also, in the same manner, report all attempts of receivers or shippers of grain, or any other person interested therein, to ipstruct, or in any improper way to influence the action or opinion of any inspector in the discharge of his duty; and the Chief Inspector shall report all such cases to the Commission."

Extracts from the Laws of Illinois, Revised Statutes, Chapter 114, Section 152:

"Any duly authorized Inspector of Grain who shall be guilty of neglect of duty, or who shall knowingly or carelessly inspect or grade any grain improperly, or who shall accept any money or other consideration, directly or indirectly, for any neglect of duty, or the improper performance of any duty, as such Inspector of Grain, and any person who shall improperly influence any Inspector of Grain in the performance of his duties as such Inspector, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and, on conviction, shall be fined in a sum of not less than $100, nor more than $1,000, in the discretion of the Court, or shall be imprisoned in the county jail not less than three, nor more than twelve months, or both, in the discretion of the Court."
