Tho Senate bill making it a mis
demeanor to entice away labor passed
by a vote of 28 to X. 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..
Senator Trinkle argued that the bill
d d not deny cither employers or em
ployees the exercise of a single
democratic principle, but merely pro
tected \ Irginla. employers and em
ployees from ?sharks" who supply labor
to Industries at so much per head under
lurid and false promises.
The bill was reconsidered, and an
amendment excluding labor organiza
tions from the penalty was rejected.
^f,nate theii to recommit
the bill to the Committee on General
Laws. On pending question the bill,
without amendments, was repassed by
a vote of 26 to 8.

the only State prohibiting women from
practicing law, and on vote the bill

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.

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.

Family's Experience in Pre
vention of Serious Sickness
and Tells How Quick Re
lief Follows Use of
Black-Draught.
Edinburg, Miss.?Mrs. Lula Mc
Lauchlin, who lives a few miles out
of this town, recently made the fol
lowing statement in regard to Thed
ford's Black-Draught, the old, reli
able family liver medicine:
"Wo have used Thed ford's Black
Draught in our family for years, as
a liver and stomach medicine. 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. The liver doe3 not
do ita duty in helping the digestion ol
food and regulating tho bowels.
Thedford's Black-Draught has beer
found a very valuable remedy for de
rangements of the liver and stomach
not only In tho caso of this Missis
sippl family, but in thousands of slmi
lar cases.
