Representative J. P. Boyd, of
Paris, is serving his second term in
the lower house and is recognized
as one of the leaders in the
Democratic majority. He is a mem
ber of three committees, one of
which he is chairman Railroads
and Internal Improvements. This
is one of the most important com
mittees and Speaker Hull used good
judgment when he named him as
chairman. Another committee of
which he is a member is that of
Penitentiary and-" Reform Schools.
This committee is made more im
portant this year on account of the
question of the disposition of state
factory buildings ua? .q:-2ipmsats
caused by the passage ol the Con

Tin i ii t
wnat is Known :. t.u oy '
bill was introduced simultaneously
in both branches last Friday morn
ing. It wus introduced in the
Senate by Senator R. S. McClintic
and in the Iloiwe by Rep. J. P. Boyd
This measure provides that before
any corporation licensed by the
state can begin the sale of stock it
must file a statement with the bank
commissioner setting forth in detail
the amount and character of its
property, its location, its total as
sets and liabilities and its objects
and purposes. If the bank com
missioner finds that the company is
., solvent and was organized in good
faith, he will furnish its officers with
a statement setting out such fact,
but explicitly stating that . he' does
not recommend its securities to the
public. On the other hand, if he
finds the concern insolvent he will
serve it wjth notice and it will be
unlawful for it to sell any bonds or
This puts a double check upon
corporations organized for business
purposes in Missouri. The secretary
of state must first be satisfied that
any company has complied with all
the laws relating to the issuances of
charters or licenses before he will
issue his certificate of incorporation.
The agents who sell the stock of an
insurance, mining or any other kind
of a corporation, except banks, trust
companies, building and loans and
a few other excepted concerns, must
take out a license to do so. These
are issued upon the payment of a
fee of $1. If any officer shall file a
false affidavit relating to his com
pany with the bank commissioner
he will be punished, if convicted by
a fine of from $200 to $20,000, or by
imprisonment in Jail one year, or
imprisonment in the Penitentiary
from two to ten years. The Republi
can state platform declared for a
law of this kind and Gov Hadley in
his final message recommended it;
It is modeled after the "blue sky
A bill introduced by Hasknis, of
Douglas county, imposes a fine of
not exceeding $50 for Sunday base
ball playing. The bill does not seem
to be in general favor but may have
more support than is thought when
put to a vote.
Of general interest to the people
of the state is a bill introduced by
Rep. Orr, of Livingston county, to
prevent the resubmission of Single
tax under the initiative aud referen
dum. It provides that any measure
which shall have been defeated
after being defeated shall not be
submitted again for ten years. From
present prospects this bill will un
doubtedly become a law.

RESOLUTIONS OF SYMPATHY.
To The Beloved Children of
Mrs. Ellen K. Proctor.
Whereas, it has pleased God in
his divine love and wisdom to take
from the earthly home on January
6, 1913, your loving mother, and
has left to you the inestimable
heritage; the echoes of her motherly
voice, the footprints of her Godly
walk, and the stamp of her beauti
ful Christian life, and
Whereas, we, the members of the
Woman's Missionary Society of the
First Baptist Church, cherish the
fond memory of her as our senior
member whose unselfish life of
service and . triumphant death at
tunes our lives and gives us grace
to try to carry on the work that
was dear to her heart. We extend
to you our sincerest sympathy,
humbly bowing to His will, realizing
that she has passed from her labors
among us to her heavenly home of
which she loved to speak so freely.

At the last session of the legislat
ure what is known as the Mobile
bill was made a law in Missouri
This law made it practically impos
sible for Fraternal Beneficiary socie
ties to do business in this state and
prevented thousands of worthy men
from making provision for the fam
ily should death remove him. The
law was not for the best interests
of the middle and poor people.
Hon, J. P. Boyd has introduced a
bill repealing the obnoxious Mobile
law. Every one interested in insur
ance for the Masses should get busy
and work for the passage of the
Boyd bill repealing the Mobile law
