It is the almost unanimous opinion
that somebody will suffer, and If the

Nearly four-fifths of the bills wc have
passed will net stand the test Gov.
Brown applied te the corporation and
revenue bills. All of the Important
bills verc amended in ene house or the
ether, and the amendment concurred hi
by a viva voce vote. The governor
may be right, but if his theory is cor
rect when a house bill Is amended in
the senate it is a new bill en
tirely when It is returned te the
house, and must be printed and read
three times sevcra1 days again as re
quired by the constitution. Then If the
senate amendment should be amended
in the house it would take three mera
days In the senate, and se en ad infin
itum, thus practically defeating legisla
tion, because It would take a whole ses
sion te pass two bills. I think the gov
ernor should have sent In a veto of seme
similarly passed bills early in the ses-,
sien, se we could have had some idea
what te expect. As it Is, alt our bills
are in doubt
Nothing is positively lenewn what was
meant by Gov. Brown's reference te the
auditor's agent system, and that the
legality of the paying of big sums te
these agenta would "6oen be tested. "
The assumption of these who have
written about it has been that suit
might be brought against the agents,
