The house Friday night held a very
short session. After hearing some
committee reports, .Mr. Foster, of*
Lancaster had called up his resolution
authorizing Sergeant-at-Arms Wilson
to buy desks and chairs similar to the
furniture in the senate. Mr. Foster
said the desks and chairs may not be
as expensive, but some new ones were
Mr. Wingo pointed out the expense,
which would be useless.
Mr. Rich a'rds indorsed the resolu
tion. "The desks were filled with dis
ease germs,"q he said, amid laughter.
The house had seen the senate beauti
fied and had passed a resolution au
thorizing the committees to buy new
furniture for the rooms. The house
should be considered now.

Mr. Foster as soon as the result

much disorder that Speaker Smith
called on the .sergeant-at-arms to quell

Mr. J. W. Ashley also wanted to
kill the bill. If he happened to give
away a pair of ''pet" pups and one
of them happened to run a sheep h-e.
would be liable to a fine.
Mr. Harmon said he believed the
bill a good one. He moved to table.'
Mr. Richard 's motion to reconsider
the bill. By a vote of 46 to 37 the
house refused to table.
Mr. Richards then moved to recom
mit the bill, but by a vote of 49 to 32
the house refused to do this.
Mr. W. B. Wilson then moved to
commit the bill to the committee on
the State Hospital for the Insane. By
a vote of 44 to 28 the house refused to
do this and also refused to commit
the bill to the dispensary committee.
There were a number of amendments
proposed, some of them humorous and
some otherwise. All of them were re
jeted. On the motion to pass the
bill the vote was 44 to 35. The bill
was as follows:
''Section 1. That from and after
the 1st day of April, 1909, all persons
are hereby prohibited from buying,
selling, receiving, giving away, or oth
erwise owning, controlling, having or
keeping in possession any dog or
