be seen by releronco to house proceed
ings, the "irrepressible conflict" between
tho people and tbo railroad corporations
occupied a prominent placo in the pro
ceedings or the legislature. Only one
bill was polled to-day, and that in tho
A largo portion of tho time of tho sen
ate, both In tho morning and afternoon
sessions, was taken up in consideration, by
sections, of bills on second reading and a
large number uf bills, especially those re
ferring to a revision of tho law concern
log township organization, and a bill for
an act in regard to thu slato reform school
for juvenile offenders. 'Ihe bills thus con
sidered wero amended and orderod to a

ties for tboio withdrawn. Thn "gutting"

a eonstitulional amendment repealing the

Coles county in a lengthy speech advoca
ting the repeal of the clause. Mr. Steele's
speech may bo best described as a "beauti
ful effort." His language and delivery
were excollent, and assured hint tbe clos

is a subject of regret tbat those favoring
repealing this clause havo boretoforo
