Mr. Amey of Brighton, Tielng to a
questlon of porsonal privllege Tues
day morning, objected to a statcment
in tho Morning Journal that on hls
roprcsentation H. 342 was hurried
through under suspenslon of the
rules. Ho admltted that ho intro
duced tho blll wlthout reading it
because he had faith in tho legal
abllity of the nian -who drew it, but
eaid he was not prescnt when tho
measure was passeu anu as a
lawyer, did not like to bo held up
as responsiblo for tlio error.
The Journal's representatlve had
, no intention of holding Mr. Amoy or
' any ono else, responsiblo for the
I error that was mado and thlnking
i tlio error iteelf of more consequence
than tlio Identity of tho man who
asked to have tho blll hurried
through, trusted to jnemory instead
1 of records, wlth no idea that any
j injustice was helng done.

Mr. (Whltney of Marlboro moved

favored tho blll. Ho sald bcars had

Mr. Peck of Burlington thought
thero was a scrlous eldo to tlio ques

or it was nothing. Ho thought $10
a emall bounty. Mr. Ellla of Pitts

ho favorod tho bill.
Mr. Guernsoy of Rochester op

farmers had been drlvcn out of the

Mr. iBond of Chester tliought lt was

and opposed tho amendment and tho

On motlon of IMr. Pittredge tho
debato "was ordered closed and tlio
blll was 'paesed. Mr. Danlels of
Warren callcd up H. 424, relatlng to
appeal by taxpayers and towns from
appralsals. Mr. Pisk of iBarro Town
opposed the bill. He tliought it was
a club for wealthy taxpayers to
hold over tlie boards of clvll author
ity. Mr. Fletcher of Cavendish said ho
hoped the questlon of prejudico
would not enter Into tho dlscusslon.
Tho only questlon Involved was ono
of equlty. Ho asked 4f an impartial
board of equity would do wrong to
any town. Sometimes the majority
of such a board wlll refuso to act.
At tlmes thc selectmen would llko
to appeal to such a board. Tho blll
provided for a dieinterested board
of three persons ln the town whero
the trouble arlses. Probably it would
, be callcd into use seldom. He said
I the bill was no Inuovation. Soveral
' years ago such a board was in exist
ence bolng appointcd hy the ussist
iniit jtidgcs of the county court.
Mr. Boyce of Waterbury favored
tho bill. Ho said nearly all States
havo such a hoard as a court of last
rcFort In appeals from listers. There
is often great differenco in the ap
, praisalo of tho samo kiiul of prop
I orty. Tlie selectmen should havo tho
rlght to appeal whero appralsals aro
too low. Mr. Gatchell of Charleston
said thls hill was purely a matter of
equallzation of taxation and ht- fa
Ts An Iiiiportaut Hill.
Mr. Vlall of Dorset thought this
