BONNEY, Charles Carroll, reformer, born in Hamilton, New York, 4 September, 1831. He was educated at Hamilton academy, settled in Peoria, Illinois, in 1850, and in 1852 was admitted to the bar. He removed to Chicago in 1860, where he soon attained a large practice. Mr. Bonney was elected president of the National law and order league in New York in 1885, and has since been annually re-elected to that office. He has been president of the Illinois state bar association, and a member of the American bar association. Among the reform measures proposed by him are constitutional prohibition of special legislation; a national currency under a national law; national uniformity of commercial paper; an extension of equity practice to bankruptcy and other law proceedings; civil-ser-vice pensions: and state boards of labor and capital. Besides numerous pamphlets, addresses, and essays on public questions, he has published '"Rules of Law for the Carriage and Delivery of Persons and Property by Railway" (Chicago, 1864) and "A Summary of the Law of Marine. Fire, and Life Insurance" (1865), and edited "Poems by Alfred W. Arrington, with a Sketch of his Character" (1869).
