And the question being on concurring in the committee report, when

Mr. Martin of Woodford submitted the following minority report: To the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the State of Illinois:

The undersigned minority, mernbers of your committee on Sena

have been unable to concur in the report of the majority of said committee recommending the passage of House Bill No. 10, and ask to report House Bill No. 13 as a substitute for the majority bill.

The reasons which prompt your minority committee in making this report are: first, the majority bill does not apportion the State as required by the Constitution; that is, the districts in the majority bill are not formed by contiguous and compact territory, bounded by county lines; nor do said districts contain, as nearly as practicable, an equal number of inhabitants, while the bill No. 13, it is believed by your minority committee, conforms as nearly as practicable to the constitutional mandate in this regard.
