% BIG BILLS ARE ] f
; PUT THROUGH AS ' / LEGISLATURE ENDS ? One by one the bills vitally con cerning the business of Alaska were 1 taken upand passed before the Sec ond Legislative Assembly ceased its labor., early this morning. A threat ened filibuster to force through the House the revenue bill providing a direct property tax failed to mater lallze and House BUI 100. the Ueec-v bill, which is expected to yield $600. 000 in revenue, in the two years until the Third Session, was put on final passage and ratified. The appropria tion bill, known as Senate Bill 61. and carrying Items aggregating $160,000 passed both bodies of the Legislature after the hard'-:t kind of a fight The' uniform school bill, which came with in an ace of defeat, went through with colors flyiug and the Drlscc-ll bill pro viding for the election of an attorney general in 1016. and the House reso lution empowering the Governor to ? appoint legal counsel for the Territory until that time, was passed The House defeated the poll-tax bill and the law on the statute books, provid-| ing for the collection of a $4 head tax is still in force. Only a tew meas ures died with the session, among them the Hubbard bill for the organi zation of trust companies and the Tanner and Shoup fisheries memorial to Congress. The workman's compensation act passed late yesterday afternoon, and was one of the first bills signed by Gov. J. F. A. strong last night. The Sen ate had refused to concur in the House action in exempting placers from the operation of the bill, and the House I was asked to recede. The House with drew the placer exemption by the fol Aye: Britt. Burns. Coombs. Day, Driscoll. Heckman. Heid. Holland. Shoup. Snow. Tansey. Speaker Col Nu> Daly. GetcheOl Morun. Xoou. '.icense Tax Enacted A free conference between a com-) mittee consisting of threo members; of the House and an equal number of Senators, deliberated for an hour be-; fore an agreement was reached on the license revenue bill. The committees 1 finally "reported back to both houses.' with several amendments to the scale of license taxes, and after the Honso had ratified the conference report by adoption, the Senate followed suit, ami the bill was sent to enrollment and: then to the Governor. Seuators Tan ner and Hubbard opposed the measure in the Senate, but the balance of the Senate voted "aye." The license bill Is not unlike that | passed by the First Legislature as that session's revenue measure.: The committee lowered th-' 1313 fish tax! schedule from 7 cents on reds and sockeyes. to 1 cents, and a levy of 1 per cent, on the gross instead of 1 per cent on the net receipts of electric j light companies, laundries, and other busiucs ? was made. No provision wasj made for the licensing of the big in dustries In the Second and Fourth di visions. Including dredgers and light- ; erago companies. The Second divis ion wii-i firmly against the taxation of those industries. The bill as it stands is declared to b?- strictly* legal, and collection of $300,000 in taxes that it is expected to produce annually, will not be difficult, it is believed. The legal counsel provision will take care of the enforcement of the tax collec tion members said last night Appropriation Endangered Had Representative James P. Daly been inclined to press a point of order which he at one time threatened to raise against it. the appropriation measure would not have passed when it did. Under a House rule an ap propriation bill must be introduced a day before it is placed on final pas sage. The Kougarok members refus ed, however, to insist on hi ? point, knowing that the bill was sure to pass, and that the point would only make the adjournment a day late. Speaker Collins commended Mr. Daly for his magnanimity. As it was. Senator Charles A. Sui zer also made a big concession before the bill went through tho Senate. All throughout the entire session Senators Sulzer and Tanner have contested the plan of the members of the other divisions, which was carried out by sheer force of numbers, to divide the moneys accrued to the Territorial Treasury by the sale of timber In the First and Third division forest re serve. They had contended with ill the available weapons of argument, that by every legal and moral right the First division.
