The trouble was that tho two houses were so far apart in their ideas of the best method of reducing the fees and salaries that they could not agree upon aDy measure at all. The house passed what is known as tho "Billingcr bill." This measure loft, the plan of paying the county oftbers as it is now, but chanicd tho fees to bo charged by the different otflserr, to a much lower figure than i3 now allowed by law. The' senate. passed the Taylor bill, which abolishes tha fee system almost entirely, and placj.l all the county olllcers upon a .salary basis, nn.l re duced tha salaries,. too.- A coaiurence committee v.'M npp lintcd b it the com mittco was as.f.vr ap.irt as t'.io h-gisla-tnno itself mi 'that n'o' a-rreement was reached at all, anl no la-.v cnac'oJ. io ):o;a liiiroilinj Claris.

While tho law grants sush prlvlloio to all corporations, yet the bill was passed for tho purposo of giving tho Atchison. Top'.ca & Santa Fo liullroad Co. tho right to porfect its reorganization In Kansas. Without thl law the Santa Fe company would huvo found it im possible to reorganize In this stato. To keep it from from going to Illinois the bill was pussod. Republicans and populists nllko voting for it. To Plant Trees Iu Kansas. The j.'Vt.OM appropriation for experimenting In irrigation does not Include nil that was done by the legislature toward Indus.ng the rain to tall or tho hot w:nd to cease their blowing across tho western Kansas prairies. The sub stitute offered by the conference comnntteo for house bill No. tilt, makes an appropriation of 8U II 9 for the malntoaa ice of tho forestry Hti- i tions heretofore established at Dodge Citv and O.'allah. In addition to l!io forestry station at the latter place, an experimental irrlgitlon station will ulso be established, nnd for tho purpose of lestjng tho water supply there and siiilu'.ig tho weil jl.T'ti wero appropriate I, which su-n is included in the ijul.'.i uliuvo.

They maintain that tho hope of that por tion of Kan-ns Is in the plant. ng of treos and Irrigation. Tho Cholera Fear Subsided. The present session of tho legislature evi dently believes that Kansas is In no immediate danger of an invasion by the dread cholera. Two years ago an appropriation of SS.ojj was mado and placed nt tho disposal of the st ito board of hoalth for the purpose of guir.llug against ua lavasioa by cholera. Tho uppropn tion was not ncc Jed. Since that tinio there has been much discussion lis to what should ho done with the fuud. lly the provisions of scu. ato bill No. 137. which .became a law. the fuud will refract back to the stato treasury. Other I'llls Pasted. There were other Imp irtant measures of gen er.illnlercst passed, aithoujh they wero such as not to create any discussion throughout the state. Necessarily tho largercltleiof the state came In for a good share of the attention of the legislature, especially the cities of Kansas City, Wichita and Topcka Among these bills aitecting tho cities of the first class was ono providing for the election of city uttornoy. city clerk and city treasurer. These officers ore at present uppoinled by tho mayor. Another was an act authorizing the cities of the Urst class to refund thoir indebted ness incurrc I for Internal Imororcm-nts. Another of these bills was houo bill 8 It. authorizing the voting of bonds in cities of the Hrst-cl iss for tho payment ofT-ublij school ex penses. Houso bill regulating tho granting of franchise to street rnilwiy corporations in cities having a populatioa of more than Ifl.'WJ Inhabitants.

The Iviinn 1'iibltc Sehnots. lly a luw whl -h pissed bo:h branches of tho legislature without o dissenting vote and ap proved by the g ivernor. tin ptibilo sehul ln tonu of the state will hs strengthened by the addition, whore it Is dem in led by the pcopie. of kindergarten schools. Tho law authorizes the board of eJu:atloa of the cities and tha annual nchool meetings to establish kindergartens and maintain the same from the school funds of thoir represents ive cities and dls:rlcts an 1 to admit to such kin dergartens children from three to seven yean of a .to. Mi.rel!sneou mils. Tho following measures of general interest were enacted into laws by the session Just closed: An net providing that when no lnTcr ju !g mcnt is secured be'nroa justice of thspc ico than lsronfc-sc 1 by the defendant tho defend ant shall not be comiwl.e I to pay costs. An n-1-fouirrr- r if lr.vi.l-i t-fl-"ish rvr- pu&'s tVi..''en pcfint of eiuppiug unajinioauiug tad one additional pun for each-, additional four oars of stock.

This act also spselilcally applies to legislators. This Is what Is known as the Ec'tsletn bribery law. An act providing th it the time allowed any county front which taxes are duo the stato oil any levlos made previous to tho year IBKI shall be extended until July 1&, lSli, wherein to claim any credit allowed by law. . An act providing that tho commissioners of all counties lying west of the lino drawn north and south along the eust lines ot l'hilllps, Rooks, Ellis, Rush, Pawnee, Edwards.

The Now Stnto Oflleer. Tho legislature will year provided for ono additional stato o!Ti or. to bo known us state accountant. Tho duty of tho state accountant, who Is to b3 unpointed by the governor, is to oxnmlne tho Recounts of all stato charitable institutions every quarter. i no 3Iro state Veterinarian. The offlco of tho state veterinarian, which was created in IHS7. was nboltsho 1. The law abolishing this cilice provldos thit the state sanitary board when they deem the services of the veterinarian necessary call upon the veterinarian of tho st ile agricultural college for such profe.vilonal sorvtvo as mtiy bo needed, rroli'.bitory Law Mndo Stronger. One of tho Important nio.tsnres pused by tho session just .dosed we.s Hint which n::ien,ls the prohibitory law to innl;e it stronger than heni lofuro and stops another loophole by which the venders of rum have been enabled to evade Hit law in the past. The nmenomcnl provides that In till prose ti tutions brought for the vio'atlon of tiio pro hibitory law the fact ih it United States gov ernment liquor liccn-e h is ben Issued to tho deferuian: snail bo ptsnia fneie evldouco thut such defendant Is engaged In the seil.ng of in toxicating liquors at the pl-ico and during the entire, tinio mentioned lu such lieen-.u: und if such jn.ik'tnent be rendered against tho defend ant In any such prosecution, such Judgment shall In diido un order perpetually enjoining und restraining tho dorcn.la.it from selling in toxicating liquors In violation of tho laws of this statu. Despite tho efforts made by the anti-prhhlbl- tlonists to secure the resubmission of the prohibitory law, or to nass some bills ropealing the more stringent sections ot the law, nothing was urcomplishod. From the date of tho elec tion until tho eloso of the session n strong lob j by was at work to secure some anll-prohlbl-1 tlon legislation, but it was ull in vain. A peti tion of 1 1,0)3 signatures was presented, usklng for resubmission, but the friends of tho temper ance oauso checkmated this move by present ing just as largo a petition praying fur tho re tention of the luw. No Congressional Apportionment. Since IKK), Kansas has been entitled to a rep resentation of eight congressmen in tho na tional house of representatives, but tho slate has not yet been apportioned for that repre sentation. Only seven congressional districts are provided for.ln tho state, consequently ono congressman-nt-lnrge has bocn eloctcd since the general election of 169i An effort was made two years ago to apportion tho state into eight dtstrlots, but tho bill fulled tn pass the senate. Tbo reapportionment bill known ns tho "Hlnlr bill" was passod by tho lower houso again this year, but it did not come up for con sideration iu the senate because of the time limitation for the oonsldoratlon of general bills. . This will bo one of the Important measures to I consider nt tho extra session next yoar.
