Ooingt and Happenings That Mark
the Progress of North Carolina Peo
ple Gathered Around the Stats
Governor Craig said of the legisla
ture just adjourned and Its work dur
ing the past 63 days that constituted
the 1915 session:
"The work of the general assembly
will In my opinion, result In great
good to the state. It was generally
pronounced a conservative legisla
ture. It certainly was a legislature
composed of strong, sensible men and
they enacted some progressive laws.
"The passage of the fish bill marks
an era In the fishing Industry of North
Carolina. This ought to be one of the
greatest Industries In the state. We
have heretofore neglected it and the
msgnlflcnf food supply which the
waters would furnish Is such abun
dance has been greatly damaged al
ready by neglect This bin provides
for the conservation of the fish, and
for the development of the fishing In
dustry. North Carolina ought to be
the leading state in this respect
the Atlantic coast. If this law be
wisely administered, It will result In
Immense good, and will alone Justify
this general assembly.
"Another law that marks the prog
ress of the state Is the act providing
for the highway commission. We are
building more good roads than ever
before In our history and this law
looks toward the Intelligent building
and conservation of the roads.
"These two laws are of the greatest
importance and have heretofore been
defeated by legislatures that have
been called more progressive than the
one that has Just adjourned.
'The prinary law Is a step foward,
so is the law regulating the shipment
of intoxicating liquors.
"The law providing for the protec
tion of Mount Mitchell and for the
establishment of a great state park
there was a fine act of the General
Assembly, and does credit to the
State. Many other laws were passed
that affect the State generally and In
"It Is true that the Legislature did
not. In n:y opinion, do everything
that It should have done, but taking
it altogether, It was a progreedve
Legislature, and it progressed wisely,
enacting laws for the permanent up
building of the State and her Indus
Speaking of the work of the Gen-
era! Assembly juet closed Lieutenant
Governor Daughtridge, who presided
over the senate, declared that In his
opinion much valuable constructive
legislation has been accomplished for
all classses of the citizenship, the

considerably above the average Legis

congratulated on the general outcome
of the session. Mr. Daughtridge an
