Mr. Bolden's resolution, which was adopted, provides that the state super intendent of banks may permit that the reserve funds held In all state hanks may he reduced from 15 to 1ft per cent. The law now provides that a 15, per cent reserve shall he maintained on hand, but while the resolution does not, of course, give the bank examiner right to violate the law.

The maker of the resolution regarded It, In his argument, as a war measure, pointing out that it will aid the farm ers through the release of about (10. 000,000, which now must be held In the ttanks. This, he declared, will do much toward easing the money situa tion and giving the farmers a better chance to borrow funds to finance their crops. .House bills 24. 25 and 26. introduced by Representative Kliel of Beaverhead county, were passed hy both houses and now await the signature of the governor. They are all appropriation measures. The first is for (4,0Oo for the mileage and per diem of members, the second is for (5,00ft for Incidental expenses, and the third, and most im portant one, is to replenish the state treasury by means of a state property tax so that the trial of Judge Crum, and other expenses of the session may he met. This hill provides for a tax of one eighth of one mill, the same rate as applied In the Mason bill, u; on all the taxable property of the state. Avoid Bourquin Measure. Thougti action on the resolution by Buell of Gfillatln. was indefinitely postponed on the motion of Represen tative Mason of Missoula, there was no disposition, either on the part of the maker, or of any of the memla-rs to change their opinions of the Bourquin decision in the Hall case. Two rea sons were given tonight in Informal discussion of the proposition In the lobby of the Placer hotel. These rea sons were; That Judge Bourquin might hold the members of the legislature in contempt if the resolution were passed. That Judge Bourquin should not be entirely blamed for the failure to pun ish Ves Hall, while District Attorney Wheeler should go scot free. And the second v as the more patent reason. Members felt that Judge Bourquin would be sufficiently advised through the- press of the sentiment re garding him. which was so succinctly stated by Representative Beiden as "the spirit of Montana today." Rep - resentative Mason's resolution, which followed the postponement of the Bout-quin notion, was as follows: "That District Attorney R. K. Wheeler be requested immediately to rclnstttutc the action against A. .1. Just and prosecute him and .ill other persons who are violators of the espionage act." The reason that Hall's name was not mentioned Is because he cannot con stitutionally be tried again. When he was dismissed, the case against Just was dismissed by the dis. trlet attorney. This action of Wheeler's was denounced in unmeas ured terms bv members of the house, who spoke favoring the Mason resolu tion, and tonight the sentiment regard ing Wheeler is this: Do something immediately or re sign." Pasting Intent*. The feeling against Wheeler here Is running high, particularly ns the re sult of the dramatic address of the speaker, who outlined the course that the district attorney should have fol lowed. ' This speech has clarified the nir regarding the powers of the dis trict attorney for some of the lay mem bers of the house who were not en tirely clear ns to the district nttorne lights In such matters, lty the simple process of filing nil af fidavit of disqualification, the Speaker pointed out. Judge Bourqiiin would be absolutely barred from hearing the nse. Not only that, but he would not even have the right to name the Judge w ho should heal it. ttie selection being left to the presiding justice of the court of appeals of this district.
