Fifth Day Morning Seiilon.
I.cglslatho courtesy as expected and
demanded by tho honorable Represen
tatives one of another wus the occa
i Itm of n long and hutlv contested '.
bate In the I Inline this morning, which
finally resulted In Representative Ka
ma falling to get that meed of the
sforcmentloned courtesy that h
Hiought ho was entitled to, and In one
of his pet bills being shelved.
Tho one great ambition of several of
the members of tho llousu appears to
lie to Introduce more bills and resolu-i
lions man nny inner memner, u ap-
I'carlng to bo their Idea tbnt the Intro-
dticllon of u great number of measuies
reflects much credit upon Ihcm, no
matter whnt tho quality of tho meas
ures or what becomes of them after
they aro Introduced. So In n number
of cases when one member has Intro
duced a 'bill another member has come
through with anothur bill almost Iden
tical In Intent and varying from tho
other only In somo ono particular. Tho
ordinary course of procedure would
bo for tho Bccond member to offer an
amendment to tho first bill when It
ramo up for third reading. Hut somo
of them seem to think that by taking
this course they would lose an oppor
tunity to make Vi r.iselres moro solid
with their constituents, in they intro
duce n second bill, which menus com
shlerably moru oxpense to the Terri
tory for translation, printing, etc.
