This was reported for passage, without oppo sition. but afterwards, on motion of Mc Cormick. the action was reconsidered and the bill brought back for amendment. Mc Oormick then endeavored to have strick en out a sub-section pertaining to tiie wielding of undue influence by the prose cuting witness or prosecuting attorney, this being opposed by Higgins upon the grounds that this has been in the près ent law for many years and has never been abused. The amendment was de-' cLared lost and the bill again reported out for passage.

P? stpon raent by the committee on salaries, by Helena, Feb. 11.—Equal pay for wom en with men in the same occupations was looked upon favorably in the sen ate today when that body, in committee of the whole, recommended for passage H. B. 136, by Hathaway. An amendment was adopted, offered by Booth, however, tb.it excepts from the provisions of the bill wives, and daughters under 18 years of age, of men physically capable of earning a living, unless the women make an affidavit that the husband or father refuses to support them. Booth asserted hundreds of women, wives of men capable of supporting them, are occupying positions that should be given to returned soldiers. "Send these women back to their homes," he said, "to rear children, to cook, and to attend to their housewifely duties." After adopting the report of the ju diciary committee eliminating the Fifth district as one district where a judgeship is to be abolished, but providing for the elimination of a judge in the First, Fourth and Tenth districts, the bill was recommended for passage in committee of the whole after a sharp fight sgainst it by Smith of Lewis and Clark, Donlan of Missoula, and White of Fergus. Smith insisted the Fifth district was eliminated because it contained three counties and it was desired to remove the opposition of the three senators from the counties affected. Parker of Jefferson, Junod of -Madison and Featberly of Beaverhead, representing the Fifth district, explained they had nothing to do with the elimi nation of the district, and they voted against the passage of the bill. Larson defended the bill, saying only three bills j were pending for the creation of as many j judgeships and therefore it was not nee- [ essarv to reduce the present number of j judges by four, and the two judges were left in the Fifth district because of the j traveling imposed upon the judges there. , Burlir.game also defended the bill and he : provoked h laugh when he stated that j Senator Donlan had intimated if the j Fourth district, instead of the Fifth.! were eliminated, the bill "would be sure to pass the senate." By a division vote ! of 15 to 22. Donlan's motion to kill the bill was lost, and it was then recom mended. H. B. 14*1. relating to the organization of cities and towns, and H. B. 1 <15, re kiting to the recording of instruments. were also recommended in committee of the whole. Booth of Fallon introduced a résolu tion that was adopted, directing the \ senate committee on education to make an investigation of the current reports that teachers and instructors in the state , university are teaching the doctrines of socialism and that some of the text j books in use in the schools also are j spreading socialistic doctrines.
