At a special caucus of tho Repub
llcnn members of tho Sonato this
morning, attended by Governor Fronr,
In tho offlco of President W. O. Smith,
nil of tho features of tho proposed bill
tn nmond tho Organic Act were
threshed nut tn detail in order that
over body might boconio thoroughly
'Innilllnr with It.
Tho homestead amendments wcro
t alien up at length, and tlio conclusion
was readied that they wcro tho very
best that could bo cut out In order to
innko It Impossible for a proposed set
tler to take up land and dlsioso ot It

II Is tho Governor's Idea, es well as

up homesteads In thn Territory must
live on and culttvato them, nml com
ply with the law. To avoid tho tie
lnondoiui frauds perpetrated on tho
mainland is one of the issues nt stake
Another thing that waB brought up
was tho possibility nf opposition to
tho bill that mlgh develop In tho Sen
ate, rumors ot which have been active,
lately. It is well known that Coelho
will mako a speech against tho bill,
and It is reported several olhor Sen
ators nro not In harmony with somo of
the proposed amendments. The Hint
tor was not considered soilnus by tho
caucus mongers, and tho feeling Is
general that tho bill will go through
with but littlo opposition.
