Senator Strode being the one negative voter He then changed his vote to the affirmative, moved to reconsider, addressed himself on the merits of the bill and thereby precipitated a heated argument. In which Senators Strode. Trinkle, Wen denburg, Royal!, Cannon, Jeffreys and others took part. Senator Strode contended that the bill was vicious in principle and al most under the ban of the opinions of the Supremo Court of the United States, benator Cannon expressed similar views Senators Wendenburg. Trinkle, noyau, and others took the view that the bill was not extreme enough to bo a vice, but was a good measure, being no less a protection to labor than tho employers. Citing cases in point. Sena tor Wendenburg contended that the bill -was to meet & situation and not a dreamers theory. Senator Rlson stated that it was always within the province of State to dcclare what shall consti tute a crime..

HIGH TIDE: Sun rises 0:40 Morning 5:20 ?Sun sets 6:00 Evening 6:05 Here and There in the Legislature A severe blow against the war profiteers was Riven yesterday by Gov ernor Davis, who sent a short messago to tho General Assembly urging the passage of House bill 370. and Senate bill 292. Those are companion meas ures to prevent trusts, combinations and monopolies and provide prison penalties for Its violation. The attempt to advance to the third reading n bill for the suppression of contagious diseases nmoc-.g bees in Virginia by creating the rilfice of in spector of apiaries resulted in sum mary objection from Senator Holt, who in tho samo connection reminded the Senate that it was a Job he was not seeking. The ill-starred hundred-and eleven failed to elude Senator Holt; though Senator Strode went to sleep at the post and let two "suspicious" characters by him. Senator Gravatt told the Senate that the hundred-and eleven was the only bill on the calen dar this session bearing his name, and that ho hoped tho Senate would not pass by it. Senator Holt paid that he wanted the doctor's record to remain clear; while Senator Garrett tenderly expressed the hope that the bill tarry on the calendar right where It is. The bill to provide for uniform offlco hours for all State Departments, insti tutions a ?1 other agencies was ad vanced to its engrossment.

HUMORS OF GOVKIiNOIl'H VKTO Attention Is Called to Plank of Plat form Which Opposed Creation of Additional Oflires?Many Other Iiills Given Approval. The Senate bill relating to motlon licture films, reels or sterooptlcoji views or slides; providing a system of exam ination. approval and regulation there of. and of the banners, posters and other like advertising matter used In connection therewith: creating the board of censors, and providing penal ties for the violation of this art, in the absence of a single objection, passed the Senate last night without a dissenting voice. Governor Davie called the attention of the patron of the workman's com pensation act that he had been elected on a platform containing a plank to the effect that ho would veto any bill cre ating a new office. Jt has been sug gested that ihc opposition to the cen sorship bill became dormant through the hope that the same plank would knock this measure in the head also, as it creates two new offices, to coat not loss than J<.800 a year. Although it is the Intent of the bill to be no drain on the Treasury. The bill provides for two censors, one of whom may bo a woman, to re ceive n salary of $2,400 a year each: and that In case of disagreement the tie shall be broken by the Superinten dent of Public Instruction. It also pro vides that a tax of II shall be charged the film companies for every film ex amined and 50 cents for every dupli cate. The law does not apply to bill board posters, in so far as the work of the board of censors is concerned, but merely states the policy of the State, that It shall be unlawful to dis play ?uch posters as are Immoral or obscene. The bill further provides f<?r the films being stamped. "Passed by the Hoard of Censors of Virginia." It is anticipated that the tax on the films for examination will meet the expenses of the new offices, and pro vides that their salaries shall bo paid out of such funds.

I have used it for indigestion, gas on the stomach, for bloating and a disagree able taste in the mouth. A couplo of good doses will relieve a sick headache and make you feel liko a new person. I keep it. especially in the winter, for grip and colds. It has been such a wonderful help to us. Black-Draught has saved us many good dollars in doctor bills, aa n great deal of sickness comes from constipation, and torpid liver whlcli . . . can bo relieved by so simple ?i remedy as Black-Draught. I praise it to all my friends." Torpid, or Blow-acting liver, is the commonest form of liver trouble mel with in America.
