The Optimist sees the doughnut the pessimist the hole, some one ha> feelingly remarked. Being himself a pessimist hy forct of circumstances, uod having in mine the General Assembly', activities <d tha pest week, he believed the Icglc lativa doughnut was mostly hole. Last Saturday was Its tUrty-Iourvl day, and the record, of the Legisla ture is still clser of nny importer.! Stale-wide legislation. The peal week has been almost a blank, ex cepting the consideration of the Krv enue Act In the House. It Is expect ed to finish work un this by Tuesday. Tbs committee is working ss hard on the Machinery Act as it did on ths Revenue Act end it will rom. In. to the bouse this week. Chairman Doughton and his call segues have ox ceedsd tha speed limit in ths hand! lng of this ms tier The Revenue Act was introduced fully two Winks earli er than usual. INSURANCE TUESDAY The insurance bill was gtvan atten tion in committee bearing, la it week aad has bean sot et a special order for next Tuesday. Two features ob jectionable to ths insurance poople heva been eliminated. The bill will pass, practically without further amendment. The Workman's Compensation Act knavin It grantor potential good than any bill no far introduced In the As •amply.

Their harmony of Interact was re markable. Both demanded the ea •ctiMntfgf the measure lata law. will introduce a the raquirmenu at With the la would obviate the ncoaaaity for half the judges in tha State. That means in judge's aalai iaa alone, *40,000 saved. But dent get the idea or the im press toe that half the jodlcial dis trirta at the State will be abolished when the act become, a law. Tba; wuold not be the case. Offices ere err*tad— never abolished. NO BONO ISSUE No bond issue will be required te run tba Statu, even though lha de mands on tba Tisstary were never greater or mare inaiatant.. Tha State Normal, thr Morganton Hospi tal and the Klntteo Keebls Minded Distilute alone demand \MUfiQ0 for the next two years. North Carolina has svar, to the beat of Kt ability, cared for it* de linquents and It* unfortunate*. Were •he Revalue of the State many mil lien* more then it la, there would attl be a arge class of unfortunates yet uncared for. Many members of the Assembly believe that a greater economy of administration would provide the ne tmsnry funds to c*ro far more of these delinquent*. They think the day ia dose ut hand, when the same business methods governing great corporations will govern tha busi ness affairs of North Carolina—Uo greatest corporation of thorn all. Then folks, with lan MaeUrwn. be lieve in tha better side at man. You know Inn any. it la optimism that really urn people and to them tha bole in tba legislative doughnut doesn't look to awfully Urge, after ail.

When women vote In North Caro lina. tile age of consent will ga be yond Id years, many legislators be !i4rv«. NO RATIFICATION Tho present drift of sentiment In in* Assembly is to pass the tiqaor bill Withoot leaving tu ralifictien to the poupty of the Hute The bill is tU-aatic. jlut it is v»ry carefully drawn apd Supreme Court proof, its edvocales claim. If It doas pass without amendment this Stats will be pi ohlhiiion in fact aa well as la name. Its innodisetioa la the House ihc flights of oratory which will n ark its discussion and finally’ lha roll call anil be Ihs most I ms rearing feature of the General Arsemhly’s entire session. Esepcielly that roll call, i'etitioas for thapeaaage of the MU continue to pour in. There seams lo be nu let up in their volume. Aad ihe thought is impressed on tho minds of the legislators «*ia« the North Carolina Anti-Saloon League IS really quite aa eCactfr organise Uon, ESctive organisation auoaals strong V to the honorable g soils man. they being practical statesman tlbmselvsa and Strong believers in tha principle of such organisation. EQUAL SUFFRAGE AGAIN Jum why tha Equal S all rags bill ha* baan aat far a ^—riil nrdw far twat Thursday la tha Senate no oae town* to fg absolutely Uo biU to Life is probably th* in Its provisions. Tha effect of tha prsint bill ould simply be to mail effective the laws now oo the statute L^ka. In this raspect His similar to Die liquor bill—which only aaoka to enforce the provision of the pro MUtion law. At tha appropriation asked for u> make this law effective to but M.WtO It I* believed the bUI will get through the hopper without ■wing disfigured for Ufa. LAND SEGREGATION If the House approve* architects Hereafter must be examined in this State. The bUI caused an unreason able amount of discs salon in the Son ate. The land segregation bill comes ap >o4ay. It has strong bxckllg and of rourse to a vary Important piece of legislation. To abolish capital punishment is the sense of another bill, while two forest conaervatioo measures have -ocoived favorable House committee eports. Another opening wedge for woman suffrage to on the statute hooka. It give* women the right of petition where property interests are involv ed and where that property wou d be •'objected to taxation. The first po rtion under the new la* mad* its appearance before a Senate commit tee the same week the law was pass ed. There was a joint session of tho Assembly to elect University trus tees and that's about tho wash's work. BANKER’S PROTECTION Of special interest to the bankers at North Carolina will bo four mini area for their protection to be Intro duced either Tuesday or Wodneday. Thera may be still farther legislation aakert for by the North Carolina Banker's Association. Nothin* mere is heard about the State-wide primary. Ita backers bops to get the measure started this weak. There will be a State-wide primery law enacted by this Assem bly. Whether it will be the real thing, covering every office from president to precinct, as Mr. Bryan urged, is quite another story. It would be a sweeping political reform. And mayhap yap have neticed on v«*r journey through life, that sweeping reforms are aboat es rare as show balls in-June. OTHER MEASURES Other measure, to be heard yet are the State Highway Coraiaiscien woman's reformatory, prison reform taxation measures. The parr hi as o' a pat of ML M Mr boil la really ( State-wide eeeare, but that etiO rests undisturbed in soma commH tee.
