Opposition to consideration of the measure on the floor of the senate centered around changing the form of the Highway Commission and re sulted in the sending in of an amend ment last night to establish a com mission composed of three members, one from the western, one from the, central and one from the eastern por tion of the State. House. Without a dissenting vote, the low er house of the; General Assembly passed the Bryan't-McCoiri , bill to re move the: State prison from Raleigh to the Caledonia farm in Halifax coun ty and turn the prison - property over to the State HospitaL for the Insane. Evidently, opposition was. anticipat ed, several members shaking from the force of striking convictions on the subject: The house was deter mined to put lit through, however, for Speaker Brummitt swapped. -the chair for the floor and was ready to take a hand in the debate if opposition vde-v veloped.
