many uncomplimentary rcmarksabout
tho legislature as now constituted.
Ono man said teday: "I would not
havo any confidence In the present
legislature cutting down expenses In
any way If cycry member would sign
a written guarantee." Another busi
ness man, well known among poli
ticians, said: "Certainly wo need
such relief as could bo given by tin
oxtra session of tho legislature, but
what can wo expect. Look at tho
equalization board that has Just

board aro about as good as tho mem
