As soon as the council passed the ap propriation b'.ll as amended, Mr. Fall suggested that the finance and the steering committees be authorized to go to the house and ask the appoint ment of a committee or the naming of the sa.ne committees in the house, to confer on the points on which the two branches differed. He said he did so to save time as, if the bill took Its regular course, It would have to be entirely re copied to be sent to the house and, should there again be a difference in conference, It would have to be copied again. He believed If representatives of the two branches got together be fore the bill was returned to the bouse and reached an agreement, it would not be necessary to make all the copies named. The council agreed with him and the two committees at once went to the house and stated the ob ject of their coming. "The council took a recess subject to the completion of the work of the com mittee.

The bill was pass ed by 11 to 1, Mr. Jaramillo voting no. House bill 64, an act granting $200 exemption to all heads of families, was reported by the judiciary committee without recommendation.

He said formerly there was a $300 exemption and he believed the poor should be protected. He de- W MAKERS of PASSED COUNCIL clared that it is not the poor man who is beating the territory out of the taxes but the man with property, the man who owns the money.
