AS TO BIENNIAL SESSIONS.
House Jnud*ciary Committee Says
Proposed Amendment Would
Not Be Advisable as it is.
Special to The Herald and News.
Columbia, January 30.-There has
been a great deal of discussion as -co
whether or not the constitutional
amendment providing for biennial
sessions was properly submitted to
the people of the state in the last
election. The vote was overwhelm
ingly in favor of biennial session and
Mr. Beamguard. of York, has intro
duced in the house a bill to ratify the
action of the people, and on this bill
the judiciary committee has submit
ted the following unfavorable report.
The Committee Report.
That in order to amend the consti
tution in any particular the proposed
ainendment shall be submitted to the
qualified electors of the state at the
next general election thereafter for
representatives. At page 674 of the
acts of 1904 we find a joint resolu
tion proposing to amend section 9, of
article 3, of the state constitution, so
as to provide for biennial sessions of
the general assembly. The section
as amended, says the act, shall read
"The annaual session of the gen
eral assembly heretofore elected, fix
ed by the constitution of the year
1895, is hereby postponed, and the
same shall be convened and held in
the city of Columbia on the second
Tuesday of January, in the year 1896.
"The first session of the general
.assembly -elected under this consti
tution, shall convene in Columbia on
the second Tuesday in January in the
year 1897, and cheheafter annually at
the same time and place until the end
of the session occurring in 1906, after
which the said sessions shall be held
at the same time and place biennially.
"Should the casualties of war or
contagious diseases render it unable
to meet at the seat of government,
then the governor may by proclama
tion, appoint a more secure and con
venient place of meeting. Members
of the general assembly shall not re
ceive any compensation for more
than 40 days of any one session:
Provid-1i, That this limitation shall
not affect the first session of the gen
eral assembly under the constitu
Section 2 of the act is as follows:
"Sec. 2. That the question of
adopting the amendment prefaced in
the foregoing sectrion shall be sub
mitted to the electors as follows:
Those in favor of the amendment
shall deposit a ballot with the follow
ing words plainly printed or written
thereon: "Constitutional amend
ment to section 9 of article 3 of the
state constitution, adding after the
word "place" lin line ten of said sec
tion until the endl of the ession occur
ing in 1906" after which the said ses
sions shall be tield at the same time
and place biennially. Yes.'"
"Those opposed to said amend
ment shall cast a ballot with the fol
lowing words plainly printed or writ
ten thereon: "Constitutional amend
ment to section 9, article 3. of the
state constitution, adding after the
word "place" in line ten of said sec
tion occuring in 19o6, after which the
said sessions shall be held at the
same time and place biennially.
The question has arisen whether or
not the amendment was submitted to
the qualified electors of the state at
the gen'eral election.
Section 2 of article 4 of the consti
tution fixes the term of office of gov
ernor at two years: it provides that
he shall be elected at the first elec
tion held after th'e adoption of the
constitution, which election was ac
cordingly held in 1896: it provides
that he shall be installed at the first
session of the general assembly after
his election. According to the amend
ment after the session of 1906, the
general assembly shall meet bienially
-that is, not meet again until 1908; a
governor of the state will be elected in
November, 1906, after the general as
sembly has in February of the same
year adjourned to meet biennially.
Section 2 of article io of the con
stitution provides: "The general as
sembly shall provide for an annual
tax sufficient to defray the estimated
expenses of the state for each year,
and whenever it shall happen that
the ordinary expenses of the state for
any year shall exceed the income of
the state for suh year, the general
assembly shall provide for levying a
tax for the ensuing year sufficient,
with other sources of income, to pay
the deficiency of the preceeding year
together with 'he estirrated expen
ses of the ensuing year.'
Some have contended that the pro
vision for annual tax can be made
without annual session's. The lan
guage of the seotion quoted appears
to your committee to indicate that
the framers of the constitution in
tended that annual sessions should
be held. We are unable to see how
the requirements of that section can
be observed without annual sessions.
The foregoing irregularities, dis
crepancies and inconsistencies are
probably not all that could be pointed
out, but are enough to warrant the
committee in reaching the conclu
sion that before che amendment was
ratified a commission from the gen
eral assembly should be appointed
whose duty it will be to go thorough
ly over the constitution and ascer
tain wherein it should be further
amended in order to make biennial
session practical; and if in the minds
of the general assembly the amend
ment has not been properly submit
ted to the qualified electors of the
state, that said commission take
steps as will bring before the general
assembly the proper resolution and
make such recommendations as in its
judgement is proper.
It occurs to the committee that it
would be far better not to ratify the
amendment now than it would be to
go forward and place the governmen
tal machinery of the state in such
awkward situation as to be unable to
conduct the government of the state
and to hazard every legislative act of
the general assembly. We think it
would be better to carry or submit
every necessary amendment to the
people before the amendment should
have to be submitted tco them again
Lawful Debt, Legally Collected.
When Mike left the employ of
Brother Rubbles, who keeps a coun
try store and also "farms it" in
Washington county, Maine, he owed~
a considerable balance to Brother
Rubbles. Mike seemed qliite willing
'to forget about it, but more intimate
acquaintances of Brother Rubbles
never lost faith that the account
would be squared in due time.
After Brother Rubbles had ceased
even to drop gentle hints about The
little bill. Mike became the owner of
a single lusty hog, of which he was
inordinately proud. He bragged about'
it unceasingly, and Brcther Rubbles
made a friendly call one day to see it,
and praised the hog in a way 'that de
lighted the heart of The lucky owner.
"Can't see how ye got him so fat,
Mike," said Brother Rubbles. "Mine
don't fill out that way." Then after a'
pause Brother Rubbles added, "I've
got a shote I'll give ye if you want it
I should like 'to see what ye can do
with my stock."
There is an old saying that sets
forth the danger of trusting the
Greeks. even when they offer 'gifts,

first opportunity he went over to
Brother Rubbles' barn, and brought
away the sorriet-looking shote that
