The Thirty-eighth general assem
bly of Illinois which lias just finished
its labors, was in session ICt days.
For the first time in over JM years the
democratic party found itself in con
trol of every branch of the state irov-
ernment. The putting into effect the
policies of the party after so many
years of republican rule naturally
met a fierce ami determined opposi
tion. All the resources of parliamen
tary law were exhausted to delay and
defeat the measures of t he democrat
ic majority by capable and experi
enced republican leaders. As that
majority in the house was only two,
the niaririn was so small that a few
recalcitrants and a few mishaps aid
ed the lanv. experienced and formid
able republican majority in holding
off sine die adjournment several
Measured as a political session that
which has just closed was a very
creditable one. Kosides reapportion
ing the state with congressional and
senatorial dist ricts, the session just
(dosed repealed the Edwards school
law, and reenaeted another more
liberal law in its place. It was the
tijjht on these measures and the sub
sequent delays that prevented a sine
he adjournment as early as last
'ttrin-r. The session was not longer
than other sessions dealing with
partisan problems. The session of
f xsi, in which the republicans with a
majority of loin the house attempted
to ri'distriet the state was a longer
one. ami an extra session held at
irreat additional cost to the tax pav
er?-, had to be recoil vened to do tin
work which the democratic Thirty
eighth general assembly did in
the regular session. The leg

The appropriations in the general
assembly reach and a5gregale almost
?.s largesas that of any other previous
session. The democratic party be
ing in control in both branches of
the legislature, it was early resolved
that a record of rigid economy should
be made, and to this end many of
t he estimates first submitted were
very materially reduced in the ap
propriation bills when considered by
lhe respective committees of the two
houses. The work of retrenchment
was begun by the repealing of the
act creating the court of
claims, finis entirely abolishing 1 hi;
court of adjudication: and signilicant
reductions were made in the appro
priations for various other commis
sions, particularly the Jish commis
sion. All the state institutions
were considered in the same oco
nomii. manner, and although many
repairs were claimed to be needed in j
the charitable institutions, the
appropriations have apparently
becm brought down to a minimum in
every instance. '
The republican policy in the hou-"
was to increase the aggregate appro
priations. This was paitlv success
ful bv combinations w ith local inter
ests in behalf of wich lv scattered I
state institutions. The following are
the various -appropriat ion bills sent
to the governor for his signal lire, to
gether with I lie ar.ii'imt of appro
priation at each instance:
