The thirty-eighth general assembly has
ceased to oxUt. It passed into history In
a giddy wlilil of fun, If not In a blaze of
glory. This afternoon aJresolutioji was
ndopted by both houses-'tu adjourn at S
p. m. to-night, and tho afternoon and
evening have been pisstd In. all in inner nt
Innocent frolics and in the reading of bills.
The resolution to adjourn was not udoptid
until after Republicans had finally lieiume
convinced that nn agieement could not be
reached on tho election bill. Two confer
ence committee-, to-day failed to agree, but
tho houte still asked lor ono moiu confci
enco and Speaker Russell appointed
Messrs. Young, Robertson and Mclnt)ie.
Tho senate refused to grant a furthei con
ference. Then and not until then the house
consented to n an hour for adjournment.
Just as soon ns Gotrnor Stone was f
tlclally notllled that the legislature had
lled adjournment at 4 p. 111. to-ulght lie
sent tho general assembly a message,
which vlituall) condunns the senate for Its

Tho enactment of a proper ehutlon law

The fiilluio to pass a fellow senants

alune ftom tho standpoint of merit; but the
defe-at ot all lcKl.sl.ulon oil thu subject
would be pecull.11 ly uufortunntu at this
time, bluce It wuuld be a practically ac
knowledged concession to iulluemes that
can not be potent In legislative councils
without detriment to thu pubilo right und
safety. 1 am tully nwaie that senators
und inemliets are anxious to bu relieved of
their duties here and to leturu to their
homes; but since the subjects of legislation
to which I refer have received very con
siderable attention and have been exten
sively dlseiissul during the piesent session,
It would cecin that an hououible ugre
ment upon correct lines could bu reached
with regaul to them by thu two houses
without long delay If an earnest elfoit
should be mado to that end. In respunsu
to )our lnqilliy, therifoie, I expiess the
hope that there will bu mi lln.il adjourn

these bpeclal subjeots has been agreed to.

Senator Haskell moved lo reconsider the
vote by which the utljouriinuvit m solution
wus ndopted. but It was deteated by a
vote ot 4 to ii.
In the sen ite. Senator Raskett moved to
reconsider tho vole by which adjournment
was ordered. This he did in view ot the
stand taken by tho governor, Tho motion
was defeated by a vole ot I jeas to 22
nass. The sen He thus plainly bald that It
would not leicde und would not give the
liouso another ch nice to forcu mutters.
While In this pettish humor the senate
denied the bill giving the governor tho
power to remove tho recorder of voters
for good cuufe. Senator llledsoe begged
that thu law be passed, but they replied
that In the event of the election of a Re
publican governor In H'JO they would have
all the moia need for .1 Democratic record
er lu each of tho Ml go eltles.
Governor Stone vetoed the bill to permit
the graduates of tho school of osteopathy
at Klrksvlllu to practice medicine the same
ns graduates ot regular medlcul colleges.
The telephone reduction bill, the stieet ear
fender bill, the Sunday saloon closing bill
und the' Steele fellow Bervant bill died In
the senute committees because senatorial
courtesy does not permit the senator!, to
compel reports to be made. These commit
tees were tho tenants of the corporation
lobby and would not act on these matters.

found guilt) uf hiving been In roi respond

April at, is il, Ml. Waller secured a con
cession from the Hovas government of the
whole of the southern pirt of the Island
uf Madagascar, and this concession was
obi. lined 111 spite of the repented piotosts
of the Trench residents and the French
colony geneially. Accoidlng to the Trench
pioneer colonist, all the 11 itlumllllos en
gaged In the India rubber trade considered
that their voted Inteiests hid been In

i lie littir did not sinie In their opinion.

Trench claim lo a protectorate and the

the Hovas. n ma) al-o be added that the

hive piesintid their ciedeutlals to tho
M.ilagisv.111 government, thenb) causing
some friction between thcmstlvts and the

The concession granted lo Mr. Waller Is
admitted to be a must valuable one, as It
Is In the git it rubber dlstilct of Tort

When Air. Wnller obtained his concession
he annuiinced that he would stop the dc
