FINISH CITY HALL
Senator Potter Introduces an Au
BOARD MAY RAISE $250,000
This Will Complete Two More Floor*
of the New City Hall
•'.'■-. With Ease.
Only ten bills' were introduced in the
eenate this morning, but several are of
particular interest to the residents of Min
neapolis. Among them is one authorizing
the courthouse and city hall commission to
proceed to the completion of the city hall
side of the public building. To that pur
pose the board is authorized to issue cer
tificates of indebtedness not to exceed
$250,000. These are to be taken up by
the proceeds of tax levies, not to exceed a
rate of one-half a mill for any one year.
The money to be 2 derived from this
source will complete the second and third
floors of the city hall, including the coun
cil chamber and the Fourth street en
trance. No more money will be needed for
the building for a great many years.
Larger School Levy.
Another bill of interest to Minneapolis
is one authorizing the proper body to
make &n additional levy for school pur
poses not to exceed three mills.. The reg
ular state levy at present is four mills,
but scnool districts, with a population of
over 50,000 may levy up to three mills ad
ditional, making the limit for school pur
poses Beven mills. The last legislature
passed an act permitting an additional
levy of one and one-half mills, but ex
perience in Minneapolis has shown that
even with this generous allowance the
school board does not have sufficient
means \t its disposal with which to build
new schools to care for the rapid increase
in school enrollment, and at the same
time maintain the high standard. Senator
McGill was inclined to fight against the
bill on the ground that it would affect St.
Paul, but it was explained to him by
Senator Wilson and N. F. Hawley of the
Minneapolis school board that the bill
expressly related to "school districts,"
of which Minneapolis is one, while St.
Paul is not organized as a school dis
trict, but only as a city. Moreover, St.
•Paul, being on the home-rule basis, by
Teason of the adoption of its own char
ter, could not be affected. No objection
During the thirty minutes in which the
»enate was in session this morning, the
house sent In a communication requesting
the appointment of a joint committee to
consider the whole matter of reapportion
ing the state into congressional and legis
lative districts. The matter was rather
promptly laid upon the table, and some
of the senators thought that the communi
cation had received a cool reception, but
the senate was simply not prepared to
consider or act upon the matter to-day.
A bill to reimburse the employes of the
■tate insane asylum at St. Peter, for in
dividual losses in the late fire, has been
presented. The claims aggregate $2,109.
The old matter of providing for the sub
misison to the people of the question of
holding a convention to revise the state
constitution was presented to-day.
The senate adopted a rule this morning
by which it is hoped that business will be
greatly expedited. The rule requires that
all bills in the hands of committees must
be reported back to the senate within ten
days after commitment. By the consent of
a majority of the senate they may be held
for a longer period, but not to exceed ten

TAX FERRET LAW
lowa Measure Introduced in the
MAN WORKS ON COMMISSION
Special Agent for Each. County to!
Clean Up All That Eicapet
Tax measures bid fair to engage con
siderable time this session. There was
introduced into the house this morning the
lowa "tax ferret"; law, a. statute that has'
saved lowa thousands upon thousands of
dollars annually. Mr. Bush, who intro
duced the bill, said that he had been, in
formed by the auditor of Mitchell county,
lowa, that in one year there had resulted
a direct'economy of $30,000 from the
operations ,of this law, while the auditor
of Floyd county reported $40,000 as the es
timated savings in his Jurisdiction.
The bill authorizes the county commis
sioners to appoint a special agent au
thorized to list all property which has es
caped the assessors. This agent is paid on
a basis of 15 per cent of all moneys ac
cruing to the public treasury through his
efforts. It is a conspicuous feature of the
bill that property owners who fail to list
their property are made criminally liable.

dodger finds himself, if a violation of the
law is attempted, has been one of the most
efficient means In securing enforcement of
The Plowman bill, another newcomer,
looks to the taxation of mortgages as real

on a provision that all contracts on the
part of the mortgagor to pay the taxes on
the mortgage shall be void. Bills pro

Object to Make I i» of Senate Reap
The joint resolution providing for a
committee of fourteen representatives and
seven senators on reapportionment was
brought into the senate this morning, but
no action was taken. None was expected
by those who have been cognizant of cer
tain difficulties which have arisen in a
most unforseen manner, and so there was
comparatively little comment on the fail
ure of the resolution to progress. To
summarize the matter. Lieutenant Gov
ernor Smith did not appoint the kind of a
reapportionment committee that was ex
pected in the senate, and there is hesita
tion on the part of republican leaders
over intrusting so important an issue to a
body on which ihe democrats have rep
The house, proceeding on the theory
that the Larson resolution would author
ize the appointment of a committee on re
apportionment, made no provision in the
permanent rules for such a committee; the
senate, on the other hand, named a reap
portionment committee directly. Seven
members were appointed, and only when
the names came to be inspected by repub
lican leaders was it discovered that two
of the septet belonged to the opposition.
The consternation which followed the dis
covery can easily be understood. Here
was an issue, as partisan as any issue
likely to come before the session, and a
committee named to consider with a mem
bership of both democrats and republicans.
The case would not have been considered
so serious bSd the representatives of the
minority hailed from the house, as in the
latter body the allotment under the reso
lution was for fourteen members. It was
very different with Lieutenant Governor
Smith's program; he had virtually turned
over two congressional districts to men
who would put forth every effort to em
barrass the majority. Several conferences
were held yesterday among leading repub
licans of the senate, but no program was
agreed upon, though it was conceded in
eveiy quarter that some means for a re
publican reapportionment in the strict
sense of the word must be devised. It was
frankly said tha: there was no Injustice In
this, because unless Senators Fitzpatrlck
and Dv Toit. the two minority members,
could be replaced, their district would be
without direct senatorial representation on
the Joint committee.
There was no opportunity to talk with

Lieutenant Governor Smith this noon, so
he could not be asked on what grounds
his sacrifice of partizan advantage had
been placed. A reapportionment commit
tee was appointed in the senate in 1895,
but the total of members in that year was
fifteen, and this gave the presiding officer
two places for each senatorial district,
with one at large. The selection of a
democrat to serve" on the committee in
that year would not mean as much as in
the present case, where the interests of
the first and third districts have been re
signed into the hands of a single demo
Make the Committee Larger.
It has been suggested that an enlarge
nent of the committee, both in house and
ienate would obviate the embarrassment
now existing. This would afford an op
portunity of naming a subcommittee of
representatives and senators to do the act
ual work or redistricting the state, and a
minority report, even if presented, would
be given scant attention. A plan has also
been broached for the designation and ap
pointment of another committee indepen
dent of the one now existing. This action
would be taken under the joint resolution,
but might be criticised adversely for sev
No action will be taken by the house
until the senate has passed upon the joint
resolution. If the majority in the upper
chamber can extricate itself from its pres
ent uncomfortable situation by the ap
pointment of a new reapportionment com
mittee the house will co-operate with it
immediately by naming such a representa
tion as it would be entitled to under the
schedule adopted. Many house members
would prefer a committee of not more
than twenty-one, but would not oppose
an increase if it became imperative In
the interest of the party. It is more than
likely that the work will be done by a
subcommittee in any event.
The house resolution will not be taken
from the table in the senate until some
plan has been agreed upon by the re

Oregon Rail & Navigation company. It
entered into a contract for this :service two
years ago last September for a term of
two years. .' When the time was up it still

would be entered .into. But , since the
