The most Import ant bill considered In the house to-day was In relation to more permanent Im provement of public roads. It was dis cussed as the special order, and was passed by a large majority. It Is In tended to make a beginning on better roads, and is likely to lead to import ant changes in the highways of the state. It wae amended to provide for building any class of roads, Instead of limliting the expenditure to Telford roads. The sum of $75,000 may be ex pended the coming year. The bill Is substantially as follows: Section 1 There shall be appointed by the governor, with the advice and consent of the senate, three highway commissioners' who shall hold ofllee from the first day of July, A. D., 1805, for the respective terms of two, four and six years, and until their success ors are chosen and qualified, and there after biennially the governor shall, within sixty days of the organization of the general assembly at Its regular ses sion, appoint, with the advice and con . sent of the senate, one highway com missioner, Who shall hold office from the first day of July next succeeding his appointment for the term of six years and until his successor is chosen and qualified. Section 2 At least one of the com missioners shall be a capable and exper ienced civil engineer. Each member , ot the board shall receive eight dollars ($8) per day and his actual expenses while officially employed.

The specifications ehall require the construction of a macadamized road, or a telford, or other stone that will, at all times of the year be firm, smooth, and convenient for travel; shall be so prepared as to call for bids from which an approximate estimate of the cost can be ascertained, and ehall state the amount of security that will be re quired of the bidder. After such spec ifications shall have been, prepared, they shall be submitted to the hlgh- .way commissioners. And if a majority of the highway commissioners shall approve them it s'hall then be the duty of the board of selectmen to advertise In two daily newspapers circulating in the county, for the period .of two weeks, for bids to do the work according to the specifications prepared. Such ad vertisements shall state where bidders can find the specifications, and shall name the place where the selectmen will meet to receive bids. Every such bid shall be accompanied with the bid der's bond In the sum of $1,000 or more, with security satisfactory to the se lectmen, conditioned that If the con tract shall be awarded to him lie will, when required by the selectmen, execute an agreement in writing to perform the work according to the specifications. All bids then received shall be im mediately and publicly read, and the selectmen may reject all bids if, In their -opinion, good cause exist therefor, but to the lowest bidder, who shall give satisfactory evidence of his ability to perform the contract; provided, how ever, that the estimated contracts awarded in any one year by any board of selectmen shall mot exceed one-half of one per centum as assessed by the 'board of assessors of the town, for the last preceeding year. When the con tract is executed py the board of se lectmen, and by the bidder, a copy of the contract with the estimated costs of the work shall be forthwith filed with the highway commissioners. Section 6 When any road shall be constructed under this act, one-third of the cost of said construction ehall be paid out of the state treasury, provided that the whole amount so paid by the state shall not, in any one year, exceed the sum of $75,000; one-third of the cost shall be paid for out of the treasury of the county within which euch road is constructed, and one-third of the cost shall be paid out of the treasury of the town within which such road Is con structed. After a road shall have been con structed under this act, the town in which said road has been constructed shall provide all money necessary to keep such road in proper state of re pair, and may, if there be no money on hand that can be lawfully used on such repairs, borrow therefor on temporary loans, until the next annual taxes ehall have been assessed, collected and paid over to the said town. Section 7 It shall be the duty of the highway commissioners to superviee all the work and contracts and the con struction of all roads under this act; they shall require provisions of the con tracts and specifications to be strictly 4 1 adhered to by the contractors and the 1 1 selectmen. l AN IMPORTANT LIQUOR BILL,. over a liquor bill that was favorably reported by the committee on temper ance.

The republican caucus for the nomi nation of a candidate for commissioner Qf the school fund was held In the hall of the house at 2 p. m. Representative Elliott nominated Herbert E. Benton' of New Haven and it was seconded by Representative Newton of New Haven. Representative Range proposed Chas. Griswold of Guilford. Representative Judson of Stratford spoke for Mr. Benton. He said Mr. Ben ton had led the party to victory and the republicans could not do less than give him an overwhelming majority for the position of commissioner. Mr. Cowell spoke strongly in favor of Mr. Benton, as did Senators Marigold, Dayton and Douglass. An Informal ballot was taken, result ing In 99 votes for Mr. Benton, 8S for Charles Griswold, 3 for Jeremiah Olney and 2 for Representative Marsh of Bridgeport. It was then voted to take an informal ballot. Speaker Fessenden. said it was cus tomary, under the circumstances, to make the vote formal. This should es pecially be so in the case of an honor able gentleman like Herbert E. Renton. He corwbated the statement that Mr. Benton's activity in republican politics should- toe urged as a reason against him. If that were the case every gen tleman In the state would be relegated out of politics. Mr. Fessenden conclud ed by heartily indorsing Mr. Benton, while praising the ability of Mr. Gris wold. On the second ballot Mr. Herbert E. Benton received 115 votes and Mr. Charles Griswold 76. The ballot was made' unanir.i-ls and Mr. Beaton de clared the nominee of the. caucus. Mr. Benton will be elated school fund' commissioner by joint resolution, and will assumei office July 1. The salary Is $2,000. NEW HAVEN COUNTY CAUCUS.

The meeting then adjourned until Wed nesday at 10 a. m. THE HOSPITALS. There was a large discussion In the house this morning over the appropria tions for hospitals.

After a discussion lasting over an hour, bills were passed appropriating $3,000 for the New Lon don hospital; $2,500 for the. Waterbury hospital, and $2,500 for two years for the Day Kimball hospital at Putnam. HERE AND THERE It is now pretty definitely settled that the general assembly will adjourn next Wednesday. In the senate, Senator Blrgc's resolu tion concerning the occupation of Nic aragua by the British, was called up There was disagreeing action to the senate having passed the bill, while It was referred to a committee in the house.
