Messrs. Randall, Frymler and Cramer
were added to tho committee on state

tricts was called.
Mr. lllll moved to reconsider tho
vote passing the resolution and said
lie regarded tlio redisricting of the
state at this time as unnecessary. He
thought if the house should go into
tills matter tho members would be
compelled to remain hero at least
twenty days longer than they otherwise
would. It any lull tnai no was over
worked let him retire to private prac
tice. Mr. Frymler hoped the
resolution would not be re
considered and urged strongly
in its lavor. He cited the fact that in
the first and thirty-first districts there
arc 28,000 and 82,000 population re
spectively, while in tho filth there are
only 1,00J. He said that home judges
havo comparatively little to do, while
others have scarcely tlnio toget around
their circuits. Mr. Hall said he did
not make tho motion in tlio interest of
districts in hh portion of thestate, but
for tho whole state, and hoped tho
motion would prevail
Mr. Hazel wood coincided with Mr.
Fry i i r, and said it was nece i-ary for
something to be done in mmie of tho
districts as there was more woik than
could possibly be done under tho pres
ent ilnangement. He moved to lay
the motion of Mr. Hill on tho table,
which prevailed. Tlio vote was forty

them and my calls remained un
answered. 1 cleared a passage along
tho hog chain for some yeveiiteon teet
till I reached the place where Miss
Squires was imprisoned, 1 hoard her
Kcrcaui for help. Sho told mo she
was untnjuicl but merely Uuablo to
get out of tho window. Flames began
breaking through where 1 was work
ing and i was driven back to
whero J know no hope for es
cape existed, and retreating
merely to avoid a fiery death. I Went
back to my wife for tlio fourth time,
and now could only grasp her hair.
Again and again 1 called to her Ibr
some sign of life, but all to no purpose,
(hises aud fiames now droyu me from
her side, aud as a last cil'ort 1 burled
myself in tho debris when hope had left
me. Tho men working from tho otitsldo
accidentally oonto upon and drew half
of my body out, but there 1 became
lodged, our combined ollbrts proving
unavailable to free mo from jhe de
bris. Finally I succeeded In dropping
through a hole made for me by the
rescuers, I was the onlyono who over
reached the light of day from under
that heap of ruins."
