About the ouly thing of Interest
that occurred in IreUmtlve clrclea
was the charge of fraud in the state

Senator Cbarles I Carter of Clark
county. He cfcargez that oine of the
titles and comraunities of the state
are getting more than their share of
the slate school funds. He further
asks the appointment of a committee
of three to invebtlaate the enumera

One-third of the total revenue of the

on thp basis of cciiool population, not
upon taxable we'b. The enumeration

Carter says thai his r. holutlou la In
tended to call the attention of the
polons to the unequal distribution of
school moneys to the end that legisla
tion be enacted covering the subject.
Important Bills Delayed.
The ciar.y important bi!U that won

distrlctlng proposition, have faded to

Tfce matter of moving the capital

at present the topic of dUcupcioa
among the legislators. Et . ILouia

the wayside. If there Is a fight on the
proposition it will be between Jeffer
son City a-id St. I-ouis, the former
iaving the support of the western end
of the state.
Mb-sourl can have a fire -million-dollar
capitol by means of a levy of only
2 cents on the $100 assessed valuation,
according to the figuring of some of
the, representatives. :'-'''' i ptan

Of $l,fio.,4X8.8.'8 would yield $3J7,S97

less will be higher and the revenues
from the 2 cents will grow. It Is bo
'ieved that the state will have no trou
