At noon yesterday the Misssuri
General Assembly convened at
Jefferson City. James H. Hull of
Platte County, will be Speaker of
the House. 0. D. Gray of Boone Co.,
will be the Chief Clerk. Francis
M. Wilson will ne President pro tem
of the Senate. Monroe County and
the 13th Senatorial District will be
ably and honestly represented by
Sen. R. S. McClintic and James P.
Boyd. It is supposed that Hadley
in his last message will advocate
many things which Democrats have
advocated for years and Hadley
knows that the Democratic legisla
ture will pass and that Gov. Major
will approve. Heretofore the Dem
ocratic legislature could pass bills
good for the people but when they
got up to Hadley, he would veto
them. Now Missouri's officers are
the friends of the masses.

Mrs. Woods had some apple trees
to blossom in July and from these
late blossoms ripened fruit. She
also had a second crop of grapes.

Washington. D. C, Jan. 4 Gov
ernment loans on farms mortgages
at low interest rates was proposed
in a bill introduced by Representa
tive Batherick of Ohio.
The plan outlined is to attain the
same object as the "rural credits"
system proposed by President TafL
The bill would provide for the es
tablishment of a bureau of farm
loans in the Treasury Department,
with a loan commissioner appoint
ed by the President.
The Secretary of the Treasury
would be authorized to raise funds
for loaning to "bona-fide tillers of
the soil" on farm mortgages, by the
issue of Government bonds at not
to exceed 4 per cent interest.
The loans would be made on
farms on which at least one-half
must be under cultivation.
Application for loans would be
made to the Commissioner, who
would certify to the value of the
property, to be ascertained by the
appraisers appointed by 'he Com
missioner, to the Secretary of the
Treasury, who would loan not to
exceed 60 per cent of the value of
the land on a mortgage made out
to the Secretary of the Treasury, at
not more than 4 1-2 per cent inter
est. The bill would exempt both mort
gages and bonds issued under the
act from taxation, and proposes an
appropriation of $100,000 for the
installation of the plan.
