HOME RULE BILL
FOR COUNTIES IS
Nine Republicans Assist in Giving the
Measure a Chance by Passing
. Its First Reading.
(From Wednesday's Dally.)
"For the purpose of harmony," as some of the members of the
Republican wing expressed it, but for a deeper reason, according
to many outsiders who have viewed the movements of the Legislature
recently, the Home Rule County Bill, rejected by the House two
weeks ago, was taken from the table, passed first reading, ordered to
print, and thus put in line for consideration, as soon as it can be had
out of the hands of the printer.
This action of the House, taken early yesterday, was perhaps the
most important thing done, and with the addition of the passing to second
reading, after discussion in Committee of the Whole House, of the
Fire Claims appropriation bill, practically sums up the hard work of
the House yesterday. There was the usual number of resolutions for
appropriations and notices of bills, with several introductions of
measures, but withal there was nothing done which upheld the promise
of hard work by the lower body. The County bill, which is now
the order of the day, has not been laid on the tables of the members,
and consequently has not had its test. There was a well defined rumor
yesterday that the Home Rulers would try and prevent consideration
of the bill until their own measure was printed and placed before the
members, but this could not be verified, and was strenuously denied
by one of the Republicans who voted to take the minority measure
off the table. . ,
The Senate worked a little, discussing the measure of
to license dressmakers, to some extent. The matter was finally
laid over for consideration with the license section of the county bill,
it appearing that its object was to license establishments, while as
worded it would compel every woman who sews to take out a license.

Under the culling of the order of
business In the House, Lewis presented
the petition of residents, owners and
claimants of homesteads In what Is
