p LEGISLATURE ADJOURNS
e Following One of the Most Spectacular
Last Days of Any General Assembly.
e Raleigh.- March 10. —The general ns
e sembly adjourned tonight at 11:30 sine
n die and following one of the most spec
tacular last days of any general assem
bly in history, with the hoppers as usual
filled with legislation. Tonight the sen
ate had before it only six bills for final
consideration. The upper body indulged
In pleasure and added the uuusual to the
j evening session, starting at 0 o'clock,
song and frivolity, humor and wit being
B a part of the program.
The first two bills disposed of tonight
. created some debate. The first bill had
i to do with corporate conveyances. Num
erous senators spoke against it, several
. of them lawyers. Senator Everett, of
, Pitt, was tint footedly against the bill
. as a daugerous piece of legislation, while
1 Senator Jones, of Mecklenburg, was even
more against than the Pitt Senator. Sen
- ator Jones felt the bill vjould allow a cor
■ poration. following the Injury of an em
. ploye engaged pi working for the corpor
i ation to deed away its property the next
■ day and thus prevent the man from re
i covery, which was his right. The man in
jured, he said, has to bring action within
GO days, even though he may be in the
i hospital at that time. Senator Mark
- Squires, of Caldwell, nWlwered mumpc*-
. able questions on the bill and argued
more than his a Hot fed time of five minutes
• for it. The hill was-overwhelmingly lost
■ on final reading.
; Civil Arguments Bill Killed.
A bill to cut the time of arguments in
civil cases from the present time of three
; hours to a side to one hour to a side, as
the amount of time a judge is forced to
' allow, was killed finally. He can allow
longer. Senator Howard nmended the
\ bill to twenty minutes in petty misde
meanors and civil cases of not over S3OO,
one hour in other cases, unlimited time
in capital felonies and capital Crimes. Hfs
amendment, vfhicli he offered as a sub
stitute, was lost, however, ns was the
bill, when Senator Grant moved to table
the amendment and bill and Senator
Squires was with him on a second.
The other three bills tqjk up little
time and had to do with licenses for au
tomobiles owned by United States sol
diers and sailors, the regulation of gen
eral contracting and the farm census.
The general contractiug bill passed after
a few moments of debate and on a close
vote ,of 23 to 15, on third reading. The
other two went ta their deaths, the first

House Has Little To Do.
Final session of the house opened with
out anything to do. Principal Clerk

cheered him. He had sustained his rec
ord of never having made a material er

tative Poole, of Alexander, sat watching
all day; he was certain to go back home,
if possible, without ' having that Aus
' tralian ballot put* back on his county.
That was about all the late hour watch
-1 ing done.
There was one more little debate. The
senate bill 1556 and house bill 1811 pro

motor bus fund called short discussion
aikd finully one vote against it. Mr
Wakefield, of course. The SIO,OOO will

, viding a compensation for three telephone
operators who have done double, triple.
I quadruple service for the legislature. The
, proponents of paying the women had a
,- majority at night but not u resurrecting
, one. Clem ii, Wright, of Guilford, led
i this fight and Miss Julin Alexander, eon
-5 sistently for economy, h'ued him. The
r house was ready to recant. But it could
. not lift the bill from the table. Dr. Part,
. of Anson, was willing to eoutribute per
sonally, but not in the name of the state.
He rebuked stinginess and parsimony and
said he was a tax payer voting some of
his gwn money for service. Dr. Hart took
5 the umbrage of it, hit back with a state
t ment that he had made all the money that
r he has, paid as little taxes as possible,
