rence before It Is sent to Governor Brum

persons, curtails the powers of the State
censors and reduces the cost of censor
ing films to $1, Tho vote on the measure

was evident from the start that the ro
port would not be accepted without a
fight. Although, according to the report,
the churches of the diocese have ex
pdessed assent to the plan in the pro
portion of five to one, there was strong
opposition In the convention.
The report of the commission Is signed

testify that on tho night of the murder
she heard a noise similar to an explosion

trict Attorney, was to have substantiated
the contention of the prosecution that the
shot which killed Mrs. Bailey was Bred
