Bamberger' of Salt Lako said he had
found a rule in the book which per
mitted nn amendmont to the Mabcy mo
tion. He therefore moved that the com
mittee bo enlarged to seven members.
Welling raised a point of order. He
said tliat Inasmuch as the journal liad
been approved tho Bamberger motion
was not in order. Also, he said," Ell
wood's motion for reconsideration was
still before the house, and that was added
reason why Bamberger's motion was not
in order.
The speaker did not rulo on the point
Immediately and Ellwood asked permis

moved to lay it on the table and that
was done.

Page moved that both of the additional

cut and all future sessions of the legis
lature extending beyond the constitutional
sixty-day limit. It provides that tho in
dorsement and certification of acts of the
legislature by tho proper officers shall be
conclusive evidence of their regular pas
sage except as to the dato of the passage
of Hie acts and the adjournment of the
legislature. In such matters the Indorse
ments and the minutes "recorded in the
journal shall be prima facie evidence only
and may be refuted by competent evi
dence. Attacks Precedent.
The practice of the legislature hasoeen
to extend tho session some days beyond
the actual .ixty-day-IImlt, stopping the
clock and dating" back the bills to the
slxtjoth" calendar day of tho session. This
practice has been tested in the courts
Several times but the courts have Invar
iably held that the journals of tho Iegls-'
latutfe.and the Indorsement on tlje acts
constitute conclusive evidence as to the
dates of passage and the adjournment of
the legislature. The bill permits the Introduction-of
evidence to controvert- the
Indorsement and the journals, with' the
result -that If the bill becomes a law no
measure enacted after the "sixtieth, cal
endar day could become a law. The re
sult would be that the legislature imist
complete its "Work within tho specified
time or have a short, special session later
to complete it.
The second bill of-vlho session wa3 the
regular coptingent expense bill. Jt was
Introduced by Senator D. O. Rldeout of
Salt Lake and parsed unanimously under
a 'suspension of the rules. Tho bill ap
propriate 535,000 for the expenses of tlie
session ot the legislature.
Propose Resolution.
L One of the new rules propoaed by the
lies committee of the senate would do
ivlvo former members- of the legislature
from the privileges of tho floor of tho
senate chamber. Hitherto tho practice
has been to extend tho privileges of the
Jloor of the senate to the members of the
legislature and -their families, former
members of tho legislature., employees of
the legislature and members of the press.
The new rulo takes this privilecc away
rtom former members of the legislature.
Li in charged that some of the"i"onJier
Lcmbers of tho legislature have dised
lie nrlvllogcs of the floor for tho.purnose.

lands, judiciary, livestock, manufactures
and commerce, mines and mining, pri
vate corporations and Insurance, public
health and labor, public institutions, rail
roads, rules, state affairs and federal re
lations. Committees Missing.
Under the now rules the committees
on apportionment, capllol and capltol
grounds, military affairs, salaries and
state departments and state moneys and
ways and means arc eliminated. The
committee on public printing Is joined
with that of state affairs, the committee
on fish and game is joined with that of
forests and forestry, that of highways
and bridges is joined with public lands,
that of labor with public health.
The other rules proposed arc "practi
cally the same as those of the previous
session. Some objection will probably be
raised to the adoption of the l'ule depriv
ing former members of the legislature of
the privileges of tho floor but It is likely
that all of the .rules will be adopted.
The senate today will begin Its session
at 10 o'clock In the forenoon nnd hence- j
forth It is probablo that most of the
sessions will be held during tho forenoon
with the committee meetings In tlxe af
ternoon arid, evening. 1
The reduction of tho number of the
committees of the senate leaves but one
chairmanship for most of the members
of -tho. senate. Nineteen chairmanships
are to he divided among seventeen mem
bers. Two of tho senators will cadi
have tw,o chairmanships.
Tho task of making tho committee as
signments Is somewhat difficult, for sev
eral of the senators' are seeking the same
chairmanships. In one or two Instances
tho chairmanships of Important commit
tees are already settled.
Senator W. N. Williams has already
been rriade chairman of the committee on
rulcs Ho Is also certain to be named
as chahupan .of the committee on appro
prlatlondliilrrd' claims. Senator Benncr X.
Smith will again be- chairman of the
judiciary committee. Both Senators
Rideout And Eckersley arc .after the
chalrmansNlp of tho -committee on educa
tion. If Sbpator Rideout does not be
come chalrniarj of the committee on edu
cation he Is lively to be named as chair
man of the committee on agriculture and
irrigation. If Senator Eckersley does not
get tho chairmanship of tho committee
on education hewlll become chairman
of tho livestock cfltamittee.
Ferry Is Scheduled.
The, choice of the chairmanship of the
committee on banking nd that 011 mines
will probably be given Vienator W. Mont
Ferry of Salt Iike. Senator Kelly of
yveber will succeed himself as chairman
of the committee on countv and munici

Senator Rooth will probably draw the
committee on engrossed and enrolled
bills and one other committee, possibly
that of public institutions.
House Is in Line.
Senator W. S. Hansen of Box Elder
will probably be given the chairmanship
of the committee on public health and
labor. Senator Hansen Is the father of
Wlllard Hansen, state dairy and food
commissioner. Venator Lunt will prob
ably be the chairman of the committee
on highways and public lands, which is
an Important one this year In view of
the roud construction and Improvements
planned. Senator Thornley of Davis
appears to be In lino for the committee
on private corporations and Insurance.
President Gardner has already decided
on the personnel of several of the com
mittees and will announce the complete
list today or tomorrow.
WlthJn a short time a bill will be in
troduced In the senate having for Its
objeet the forcing of men and women of
the state to exercise their privilege of
voting. The object of the bill Is to got
a complete expression of all the electors
at all elections and on all Questions.
The bill will propose that a poll tax
bo levied on every man and woman of
voting ago in the state, with the provi
sion that all who vote at regular and
primary elections shall be exempt fro'm
paying poll taxes. Absence from tho
city, Illness and Infirmity will also ex
empt citizens from the provisions of the
proposed law.
Under such a measure It is believed
that 00 per cent of the electors of the
state woutd vote at each election. At
present' the percentage of electors who
exercise their right of franchise Is much
In support of tho bill, it Is declared
that under a democratic form of govern
ment the votes of as largo a number of
electors as possible are essential to secur
ing an accurate expression of the will
of, the people. It Is declared to be essen
tial that a majority of all the qualified
citizens rule, not merely a majority of
those who go to the polls.
The bill will also carry a provision
against the transportation of voters to
and from the polls by political parties and
candidates. This provision Is directed at
one of the' most expensive anc ilagmnt
abuses under the present election sys
tem. "
Other Election Bills.
Other election bills are being prepared
for Introduction soon. Iteprcscntatlve
Samuel L. Page of Piute Is preparing a
bill to do away with voting by emblem.
L'nder the present system a voter may
voto for all of the candidates of a politi
cal party by pulling the party lever on a
voting machine or by puttlntr a cross in
the circle under the party emblem on. the
paper ballot. His bill will require that a
cross be placed after each individual
voted for.
Another election measure has for its
object the abolishment of the votlng'ma
chlncs. There was much objection to the
voting machines prior to the recent election-
Because of the multiplicity of can
didates nnd a prevalent desire to n more
or lews scratching there was a disposition
on the part of the voters to return to
the paper ballots, where scracthlug was
simpler and where there was jio compli
cated mechanism to conTusc them.
Corrupt Practices Act.
A general corrupt practices act having
for Its object the reformation of the
campaigning on election day Is being con
sidered. This would prevent the distri
bution of campaign literature on olectlon
day. the transporting of voters to and
from the polls by political parties iano It.

to let the lawyers settle tho affair.
