sion should be reaulred has nnt hew. .
troduced this sessios. Failure to
adopt such a resolution would leave the
Secretary of the Territory ia tha pecu
liar position of haviag paid out money
illegally, in case tbe session should run
over the sixty days contemplated by
law, as the federal 430,000 appropria
tion ia made with the tirovi-m th.t id.
session of the legislature shall last only
xiy ooys. ...
Attention wss called veaterda-r . in
the feet tbst the legislature had failed
to adopt tbe customary resolution,
wbieh heretofore for several sessions
has been smong the first introduced.
President Chlllingworth of the senate
said that the failure to introduce the
resolution was merely an oversight,
snd he would see that it was remedied.
Hpeaker Holsteln merely stated that he
could see no reason for an extra ses
sion snd ' therefore the ron.ilntlnn
would be superfluous.
But it may be remembered that the
string wss tied to the federal appro
priation for the expenses of the legis
lature because of the Tsrt that .Umr
legislatures in Hswsit made it a prac
tise; to reach the end of the sixty days
with the appropriation bill not passed,
which necessitated an extra session,
thereby netting the honorable mem hers
200 each. There are undoubtedly
eome members of the present bunch of
lawmakers who would mightily hate to
see a chance to make that much poeket
money slip by unimproved.
