"t-aft ycar we liad a tax commlsslon blll. wlth nothlng but 'the Speaker* wrlttcn all over il," protcsted Senator Hart. *I am teetotally opposed to having the Speaker on thls commls? slon Wlth hls tnqulsltlvo nature hc Would explorc around and stlr up all rorts of f;ontentlons."

Scn? ator Strode argued that it r.onld add two members ivhose tlme ls not so greatly taken up wlth other dutics, as is tho case v.lth the Governor and tho chairman of the State C?n>?ra"?n Commlsslon. Again. the additton pro posed would meet the popular demand in th<* Houso that the commlsslon should have thc various sectlons ot thc Statc represented ln Its composi Replylng to thc objectlon of Senator Holland. Senator Sal-* said that hls amendrnent was germanc to the llol land amendrnent just passed. rhe pass agc of that amendrnent dld not mean fiat the Legislature should not have a "look ln" on the commission. I'olnt "in"* out that thc tlme of the Governor anj the chairman of the Statc Corpora? tion Commlsslon i? largely taken up already he urged that other membors be added.

Should hr hr. tno much of a thoonst ano too littlc of a practlcal man. somebody ought to be on the commlsslon who would have time to hold hlm down. Then ensued a parllamcntary battle a.? to whether the Sale amendrnent ap plieil to the origlnal substitute or to the Holland amendrnent. Senator Hol? land rontendod that tho amendrnent partook too much of tho color of the origlnal blll, and that lf passed it would be a retracing of steps. The vote on the Holland amendrnent had seitled tho policy of the General As sembly, so that it recorded itself as prbferrlng a. non-leglslatlve commltteo to a legislative one. There had been a tacit agreoment that H was to be one or the other. and that the vote on his amendrnent was to bc the tcst. Aniondntcnt Ilcfcilteil. "T know nothlng ot any taclt acrce ' ment." said Senator Halsey. "aiul 1 shall vote Iridependenlly' This amend ment only seoks to give the people o "peop-in" at the proceedlngs of thlf august trlbunal. I call on the Senate to aet lndependently on thls proposl? tlon If tho wisdom of the Salt amendrnent oommends it to members let them voto for it." Senators Salo.

The object of thls is to see if there are enough people in Ellzabeth Clty county and Newport New. to al'.ow it judlcial clrcult, so that Accomac and "Morthampton may form a new circuit.

The polnt was made that he could oppose thls later if the census showed enough people. The blll was passed. The Houso inslsted on lts amena-j ment.s to the blll adding banks as State depositarics. Messrs. Yarrell. Moncure. of Alexandria. and Xoland were appointed,a committee of con? ference wlth the Sonatc. Revenue Measures. The House agreed to the Senate amendments to the bills allowing the assessment of a franchise tax on llght, heat, gas and power companies. The changes merely make the measures cmergency onc."*. The committee of conference report ed as to the Senate amendments to tn. blll regarding schools. Tho Senate provlded that upon a petition of four fifths of the patrons of a school the board mlght employ a teacher related to a member of the board. The con? ference report requlred tlils to be oone only with the concurrence of the Su perintendent of Public Instructlon. Mr. Oliver opposed the report. Ile thought it had policy. The Stato. he argued. should not go back to thc old system. wlien school boards could em plov their relatlves. It would seem, he "said, that a petltlon of four-fifths would prevent abuse. but as a matter of fact it would not, since the people would not rcfusc to sign such a peti? tion If asked for by the trustee. Mr. Johnston thought thc people should rule in this matter. He favored the conference reporr. Upon roll call tho conference report was rejected, 40 to 42. rnrllaiucntary Dodgca. Mr. Oliver moved to reconsidcr; M>. Yarrell moved to pass this motion by: Mr. Page moved to lay Mr. Yarrel.s motion on the table. The latter motlon was adopted. Speaklng to the motion to recon sider. Mr. West, of Bedford, said he , hoped tho House -would reconsidcr. | Relatlves of trustees under thc pres? ent law, he said, are forced at times to seek employment in other places. This he characterized as outrageous and prcposterous. A true man, he argued. will be. more partlcular wlth his own relatives than with others. Mr. Page thought the proposltlon vicious. No such temptatlon should be put in tho way of a trustee. It was too much llke making a man a judge In his own case. A trustee could put a member of his family ln a posltion which belongs to the whole people. In some dlstricts, said Mr. T.ove, lt Is almost imposstble to get good teachers. Hc thought this proposal ?well guarded in tho conference. rc port, Mr. Yarrell said tho proposltion was one of roason and common sense. Tho existing policy, ho asserted. has drlven many good trustees out of thclr posl? tlons. And during thls time, added Mr. Oliver, Virginia has rlsen from the thirty-fourth State to the soventeenth in educational mattcrs. The motion to reconsidcr was lost. Seuntc Bllls I'assetl.

The blll on the calendar of the Senato was found to contaln all the provislons that thc seed folk wantel, and the mlstake waa discove.red, namely, that tho alarmed seed dealer had gotten hold of the un amended bill instead of that passed by thc House. The only bonc of contentlon left was a provlsion as to the inspection and regulatlon of seeds transported Into the State, and thls has been practlcal? ly settled. It was fearcd that lts Jn corporatlon Into the bill mlght defeat it on a possible constitutlonil ground, but thls wlll be thrashed out by the conimittee, whlch will consider tho hill lnformally. The fact that the. blll Is on second reading ln the Senate prevents commlttee conslderatlon, un less recommitted, and lf lt wero re committed, lt would lose lts placo on the calendar, and mlght be lost In tho mass of legislation that ls tacked on thc end of the calendar wlthout hopo of conslderatlon.
