Columbia, Jan. 16.-When the set
ond session ' of the present legisla
ture convened in Columbia on Tuz:
day at noon the house and the ser
ate were confronted with very heav
calendars eontaining bills which wer
continued from the last sesion.
The house calendar showed on
hundred and eighty-fiv, hills. and
great many of them will be kille
whenever consideration is given then
On Wednesday it was decided to g
over the hous? c)lendar and see if i
would not be possible to eliminate

the files of the house and six wer
recommitted. which still leaves a cal

The engros ing departm. nt wa
flooded with new measures. On Tue.
day and on Wednesday these began t
pour into the hopper of the house an
they will continue to pour in for th
next several d'ays.
The bill. to repeal the lien law ha
been introduced and, as at the la:
session, it will pass the house an
the opinion prevails that it will als
pass the senate at this session. Thez
are at least a dozen bills proposin
various solutions of the labor contrac
law. It is hoped that out of the m-ult
tude of laws there may be. evolve
some measure which will solve thi
problem and meet the requirement
and desires of those who are intei
ested in the question of labor con
tracts. It seems that something i

There will also be a number of prc
hibition measures presented, and ther
seems to be little doubt that th
house wilc pass some sort of Stat
prohibition measure, especially if th
prohibitionists themselves .ean agre
on some one proposition looking t
State prohibition. In talking wit
some of t.he senators, they seem t
think that the senate will not agg

The most important matter,:

will have to deal with is to keep ti
appropriation bill within ibounds,

Every department of the goverr

there is need for more money to mei
