wrote that paper: "With good

in the hands of committees or ou the
The introduction of these little
bills at the very tail end of a session
of the legislature is tbo greatest nui

More than a hundred such bills have
been introduced within the last few

been ottered the first week of the ses

OTk'EH LEGISLATIVE NOTES.
The Senate on Saturday promptly
killed (by the vote of 24 to 1) the
bill, reported favorably by the com
mittee on public buildings, providing
for the erection of another state
buildiug on a lot owned by the state
opposite the southwest comer of the
capital 8iiiare. It was intended that
this new building should be used as
a hall of records and by the state
library, the insurance commissioner,
labor commissioner and other state
officials who are now inadequately
provided for. But the-bi 1 1 provided
for an issue of $100,000 in bonds to
pay for the building and that sec

old Populist law and authorizing
editors to make contracts with trans
portation companies, with advertis

House Saturday evening. Having
already passed the Senate it will at
once be enrolled for ratification.
Night sessions of the House began
Friday last and this week the Senate
will follow suit. Nearly 200 "little
lojal bills" were passed Friday night,
about 199 of which have no good
reasons for existence. There is en

smart Alec. 1 see where thev have
been after the dear church sisters in

Thev had about a dozen of the dear
lu girls headed towards jail, hut
the evidence showed that the rtir
uished the prize for which thev plav-
ed. The judge rti led that where such
was the case it lacked one essential
lenient that made il gambling.
Thai gambling was really a game at
which you must win or lose and
where "tho hostess furnished the
prize, then the guests, who were
playing for it could win but could
not lose. And on that technicality,
the dear sifters were allowed to go
buck to their husbands and children.
For all of w hich 1 urn thankful.
But look out now. If vou women
make up money and buy a prize und
