The decis ion was reached on the third roll-call after preliminary tactics had< been played to the limit. Many democrats were away and their absense jrave the republicans an advantap;e which could not be overcome. They had |)reviously agreed in caucus to pre sent a united front and luckily caujrht from passing the Senate. A filibister led by Senator Lodge blocked the free passagre of the railroad adminis tration bill and upset tha Goverment p’ans for development of the lines cliis year.

Everything they needed, they made or it was mad^e at. Feeling the . great need of preachers, the Baptist concluded to try their hand. The first run they made they turned out two, Robert Jordan and John Galloway. The Baptist were rather jubilant over their result. So the Methodist decided that they would make a run ofl". The rsult •was John Clark and John Trull. Uncle Jimmie Brackens didn’t take to John Clark’s preaching a little bit. Said he could beat ‘Juan” himself; said if Juan would quit and prove his attendance, he would pay the fee and ca.sh his scrip. Galloway soon became the favorite of the young folk. It was not so much what he said, but the enthus iasm he put in it, especially in v/arm weather whn he would begin to get hot and pull off his jeans coat and throw it down, get a little hotter and shed his vest, and when he began to unbutton his shirts (he always wore stitution are in order, why not “fix” lit?

WHAT THE LEGISLATURE DID Beginning at an early date this % newspaper expects to giv3 its readers a complete synopsis of all important local and general i;:ws enacted by the recent General Assembly. The information Vvili apptar weekly and should prove to b2 an interesting feature of the paper for a month or two. It is no small unujrtaian;.^ a'.-id a “labor of love,” but the folks “back home” are always interested in the activites of their representatives dur ing the legislative session and we shall undertake the task of letting them have the information. It will be weeks before the laws can be issued in book forn:. Be-if’/js, the volumes containing ihe statutes will not be for general distributio.i and the public cannot raceive the in formation except through the medium of the press.
