Mr. Speaker
I now give notice that on Thursday next I shall ask leave to introduce a bill for an act relative to a state road therein named.


Sec. 1. Be it enacted by the people of the state of Illinois represented in the General Assembly. That Reuben Harrison, John Clary and Tandy James be and they are hereby appointed commissioners to view, mark and permanently locate so much of the state road, leading from Springfield in Sangamon county to Lewiston in Fulton county, as lies between Springfield and George G. Miller's ferry on the Sangamo river.

Sec. 2. Said commissioners or a majority of them shall meet at the town of Springfield on the second Monday in March next or as soon thereafter as practicable and after being duly sworn by some officer authorized to adminster oaths, shall proceed to perform the duties required of them by this act; avoiding as much as possible the injury of private property.

Sec. 3. The said commissioners shall as soon thereafter as convenient cause to be filed with the clerk of the county commissioner's court of the county of Sangamon a report and complete map of said road, which report and map shall be preserved and shall form a part of the record of said court. Said road when so established shall be kept in repair as other State roads are.

Sec. 4. The county commissioners court of Sangamon county shall allow to said commissioners, out of the county treasury; such compensation, as, to them shall seem just and reasonable.
