The Lower House Declared for the
Rucker Bill, but It Ot Kilied in
the Senate, and So the Session
ias Ended Without Dis
The Senate and House it seems
could not agree en any dispensary leg
Islatio, and so the eaica has ended
with the dlspensay right where it
was when the Lagislature first mst in
January. The Senate Wedneaday
morning rsad, for the second time,
the Bay'sCi-&anning bill, and on
Thursday passed it and sent It to the
Hous. for concurrence, which the
House refu;ed. The bill was sent to
the House not to be voted on, bu as
stated above for conwurrten, as the
bill was rearlly a house mmoare. This
status was obtained by affi dg to the
title of the Morgan bill wnioh has a
ready passed the houw, the body of
the Rsysor MUnning bill, which orig
inated In th - -e ate, and bad never
been r-7 acrwu .t- State house.
S~'-. afDer the senate was oalled
to order va Wednesday morning Sen
tor Blease of Niervb rry announced
that he would not continue to hold
the ficor, as he had been advised that
the dispensary bills were not in any
danger of b.m'ng law and he tbought
the issue would be in the campaign,
after all, duren the summer. Senator
Efird, who made an unmuccessful mo
tion shortly before to limib all apeeci.
es during the remainder of the seuon
to 15 minutes, off.;red two minor
amendments to the Raysor-Kinning
bill. These were adopted but amend
ments by Senator Ryor to eliminl.es
the board, of control from the bill
were rejected. The bill was then glven
and aye and nay vote as follows:
Ayes-Senators Bates, Biven,
Black, C. L. Blease, E. S. Blesse, Car
penter, Davis, Dennis, Douglas, Earle,
Erd, Hardin, Hay, Hohday, W. R.
Johnson, W. J. J.hnson, Manning,
McGowan, McL od, McIver, Pearifoy.
Baysor, Stackhouqe, Walker, Warren,
Nays-Senators Brie, Brown,
Brooks, Batler, Carlsle, Hood, Honh,
Hudson, Mauldin, Talbert, von K1
A number of senators stated their
positices Senator Hardin was in far
vor of local option, but now that the
Morgan bill bad been killed, he be
lieved the Ravsor:Manning would re
Heve the present conditions, whfe'i
he could not v use.it to coatinuiag as
they are. SLators Mclver, Btes and
Holday shared this 'view. Senator
Hough, thought the b~ll worse tnan
present condlifns, 'while Senators
Talbert, and Brooks, were against the
dispensary and 13s baing patched up.
Senator Mauldin did nt~t think the
bil would help conditions but Sena
tor Black thought it would.
A large number of senators, includ
Ing dispensary advocates, declared
temselies against beer dispensaries
and hotel privileges. The neXt bill
taken up was Senator Mau:din's to
abolish these forms of the digpmar
law. A direct vote was-taken on the
bi's passage and every senator in thre
chamber voted for It except Senators
. L. Blease, Denns, Douglass,
Hay, Hudson, W. E. Johnson,
Mashall, von K-ini -s, Wazker,
Warren and Wlliams-13. Seniator
Carpenter did not vote, as fe was out
of the chamber at the time.
-The senator was of a mind to get
through with all dispensar! ensinass
possible, and Senator Warren's bill
to bave a general State electin and
abide by the results for S yesus was
klled by avotecef 31 to 9 Sntor

to rest the opening of dispenmaies

county supervisor and board of direc
The Mauldin bil and the Baysoi
Mnningr bill was read the third time,
and sent to the bcuse where tbey both
died. Senator Mauldins bill origlit
ed in the senate bunt the other mess
ure, as said, was a bcus bill.
The last bill on the senste calendar
that touched on the dispensary came
up at the night session. Tils bill,
by Senator Mauldin, was designed to
prohibit mnanufaOcure of whiskey in
dry counties and to have the deiga
tion ley a speeln tax sofflaient for
that county, instead of having i. gen
eral tax as under the Brice bil, the
enforcement of law being done by the
sherf s and their deputies instead of
the consabulry. The bIll is along
the lines of Gov. Heyward's recom
mendation in his message.
The senate refused to kill the bill
by avoteof 2 tol14. Senator Maul
din spoke for his bil and Senators
Blesse and Walker against 15, but It
was final1y disposed of by debate be
Ing pottopned. As this left no chance
for iit to pass at this session, Senator
Maldin withdrew it from thle calen
dar. This ended dispensary legisla
ion in the senate f or the session.
THE EtCK~ER BILL.
On Wednesday in thle House Mr.
Bucker called up his straight county
dispensary bill. He did this, he ex
plamet d, because the senate had killed
the Morgan till ard he wanted to give
the senate the chance of holding the
bag. Let the senate have the burden
of keeping that bouquat on the Con
gaes river, Hes wouldi never see the

dispensary was allowed to live. He

the prospect of trouble, Mr. Soh werin
last night said:
"TheBxer uprising of 1900 was
the cne svidence of the ferment of
anki-.oreign feeling, but when order
has been restored no people stood
closer to the Chinese than did the
Americans. And as a result, our
trade with China has increased by
leaps and beunds sinc the end of the
Boxer cutbreak. But the anti-Amer
can boycott has not only chocked the
davelopment of trade relations, but
what has already been built up it
now threatened. Tnis is only the re

the Paciflo. The clear intent of tne

Kr. W. D. Hunter, oQf the Depart

f the cotton boll weevil investiga
Sion, is preparing to return to Texas
where he declares the problem of wee
il extermination is farifrom solution.
ur .ltest risports, said Mr, Hunter,
show the wher.1 last year bas made
is cusatomnary advance for Aifty miles
as-ward. An unfavorable para of the
present situation is that the late ad
ance puts the pest in the lowlands
aong the Mississippi river where
onditions are most favorable to its
existence. In Texas the low wet
etions eacfred most. In Western
Louisana, there was a belt in which
no cotton was grown, a great timber
beit. We endavored to keep the boll
weevil from getting past this belt,
but have failed. The Mississippi
river can not be regarded as a barrier
as the weevils have been known to fly
twenty-five miles with a favorable
wind, and as there is much traf~e
across the stream It is sure to be
carried in baggage. Along the Missi
ssippi river is whlere the greatest
damage will be done. All the South

Julian Hawthorne draws on amus
ing picture. of Senator Tillman ad.
dressing" the Uaited Stats Senate
last week on the railroad rate bill.
With the scholarly Senator from Mas

been sailing long and smoothly on
Summer seas. He seemed to be en

ons a csnts, as he read his speech,
and. at stated Intervals, lifted the
leaf from the pile of law books on his
left and laid It gently and acurately
on the slowly augmenting pile on his
right, seemed like the sof ly swelling
and subsiding waves of the blue
(can over which we voyaged.
The Senatorial audience sat. en
tranoed, with eyes half closed in
dream comfortableness. The galler
iss, graced with much that was femi
nine and beautiful, sailed on serenely
with tht; rest of us.
Mr. Knox, keeping his eyes resolute
ly ajar beneath his level and slightly
gathered brows, gave his most courte
ous attention. Other great railroad
representatives - Foraker, Aldridge,
Eikins, Gallinger-attempted not to
conceal the plentitude of their satis
faction in the argument cf the spokes
man of the White House.
The desks of the opposition were
less well filled, but several of their oc
eupants confessed to the spell of the
orator. Mr. Tillman read pamphlets,
but he was to speak after Massacun
setta had finished.
The Isle of the Blest seemed near.
All was well alow and aloft.
The nation, under the aegis cf the
Executive, was safe. Tne rate bill
was an important measure, but Mr.
Lodge had given the suIj ect of rail
way rates his earnest attention dar
Lng several months, and he knew, he
might venture toubeliebe something
wtout it. He had even gone so far as
to unload his modest holdings of rail
way stock before beginning his exami
ation, lest any shadow ef self-inter
sat might creep into his point of
view. He was explicit, after all this
study, in announcing that personal
rebates were really and truly wrong,
and must be stopped. But ab! gen
llamen, what a mighty and prosper
uau nation was ours; and ab I again,
what a mighty element of beneficence
were our railroads!
Railroads are the property net of a
'ew haughty millionaires, but of mil
ions of trusting and deserving stock
tilders, for whose benefit they are
sonducted. To injure railroads, then,
La to aim a blow at the common peo
"Is any here so base that does not
ove the common people? If any,
speak, for him have I offhnd! And,
de~ nob railways d~pend upon the pros
perisy of the couatry for their living?
How, then, can they bi suspected of
working ag&Lnst its interests.
"Ib is preposterous," exclaimed the
Senator, almost raising his volos,
"than they should be suspected of be
ing shortaightedly avaricious."
And so, an laaS, he laid down the
last leaf upon the four squsre pile
and turned to receive the congratui
lations of kMessrs. Aldrich, IForaker
and the rest of the men against whose
interests the Hepburn bill is under
stood to be aimed.
It was beautiful; it was like the
lotus eat-ere; and we were just falling
into the sweetest slumber wnen all as
once an awful thing happened.
In the Senate Mr. Tillman is al
most the only event that ever does
nappen. Up he came from the dark
some hold of our Ship of Sjtate, sav
age and threatening, a freebooter,
armed and fierce-eyed; a buccanoeer,
with a knife between his teeth and a
pistol in either hand.
The Summer seas passed away like
a dream. The Isles of the Blest sank
beneath the horiz mn. The clouds
blackened the sky and the storm
wind shrieked In the silken cordage
of the rigging.
Tillman~ bad ripped the entire bots
tom out of cur craft, and we were
Tne seas rose In fury; we were
plunged headlong into them, swim
mit-gly suddenly for our lives. There

The nation was once more strug
