All tha Joker Cut Out.
S. l'j. EricUson Where does this
measure differ from the Mueller bill?
Chairman Lindly It has all of the
jokers cut out, and is a plain, com
Patterson took the position that the
three-year franchises in connection
with foreclosures provided for in the
committee bill would render the rail
way certificates practically worthless
He moved to strike out this provision,
but on a viva vote vote the motion
was lost. After further discussion
motion by Gray to report the bill to
the house as a committee bill was

ing street railways.
"I5ut no city shall proceed to own,

by three-fifths of those voting thereon.
'Tor the purpose of acquiring street
railways either by purchase or con
struction, as provided for in tills act,
or for equipment of any such street
railways, any city may borrow money
and issue its negotiable bonds therefor,
pledging the faith and credit of the
city; but no such bonds shall be issued
unless the proposition to issue the same
shall first have been submitted to the
electors of such city and approved by
three-fifths of those voting thereon.
"Section 2 In lieu of bonds issued
against the credit of the city for the
purchase, construction, acquisition or
equipment of street railways, as pro
vided in section I of this act. any such
city may issue, certificates of indebted
ness, to be known as street railway

PROCEEDINGS IN TUE UOUS3
Most Important IlilU Upon Which Action
Was Taken Joke on Lurton.
Springfield, Ills.. April IS. In the
house yesterday Wilkerson's anti-trust
bill was advanced to third reading and
made a special order for next Wednes
day. At the request of Drew the fellow-servant
bill was made a special
order on second reading fur next
The house passed the bill giving the
state board of health .supervision of all
sanitary ventilation regulations; the
Vill permitting women to hold the of
fice of trustee or director of public
libraries; the bill requiring physicians
to make reports of births and deaths;
the bill providing for the examina
tion, registration and licensing of
Two local option bills the Anti-Saloon
League and the committee bill
were made a special order for next
The house had fun in the passage of
Lurton's bill providing that all street
cars be equipped with screens or vesti
bules for the protection of motormen
and conductors. The house demanded
a song by Lurton before It would
vote on his bill. This he gave in his
characteristic stjie, and then the mem
bers, as their names were called, pro
ceeded to vote solidly against his bill.
As the roll all proceeded Lurton be
came very much worried, and confided
to a personal friend that every one
who had voted against the bi) was a
prevaricator, as he had been. promised
a solid vote for It. When, the roll
call had been about half completed
Allen arose in his seat and said that
he had voted "No" under a misappre
hension, and desireil to change his to
"Aye." Oth -rs claimed the same priv
ilege and then Lindly ordered a new
roll call, when Lurton's bill received
1()." affirmative vote.", while but one
was recorded against it.
EXPRESS MONEY ORDERS
ni!l to Alo!iT Them in Illinois Fails to
Springfield. Ills., April IS. Mc
Clenathau's bill to prevent express
companies from selling express mon
ey orders or bills of exchange was
taken 'up on the order of third read
ing and placed upon its passage in the
house yesterday. Hundy, in explaining
his vote, vigorously attacked the bill,
lie said in part:
"The sole animus of this bill is to
add to the business of banks. The
bankers have not asked for the change
and the express companies have made
no attempt to defend themselves. The
lira died of dealing In express orders
is not a" money-making scheme but
a matter of accommodation to the pub
lic. " This bill if passed would work
a hardship in some districts where
there are no hanks and where Jt falls
upon the express companies to attend
to all of this business.
MeClenathan, replying to Dundy,
said that express companies do not
maintain reserve funds in their vari
ous olhYcs for the purpose of paying
the. money orders handled by them.
ind that express companies in many
instances refuse to cash such orders.
As the roll call proceeded it became
evident that the bill would not re
ceive, enough votes for its passage,
and upon motion of Cray the further
considerationof the bill was postponed.
