ful consideration must be given by
the committee in charge to inose not
only interested In road work anil
building, but humane considerations
for the prisoners; and whereas I he
genera) policy of tho Legislature In
the main should now be declared so
the committees may at least know the
Legislature desires a change Now
therefore.
He Is resolved by the Senate,
the House ot Delegates concurring,
That tho present contract lor lure ot
convicts siiouid be abolished.
"Itesolved further, '1 bat Hie Commit?
tees on Kouds of both Senate and
House of Delegates, shall meet at Oliee
jointly and commence th? hearing und
preparation ot the proposed law on
this great matter."
Opposed by Senator Kc-hola
Senator tehols, while admitting the
Importance of the question, wao op?
posed lor that very reason :o the
Senate's committing itself at this tltiw
to either the continuation or abroga?
tion of tho contract. Tne matter, he
thought, involved auch u rddlciil enange
of pulley on tho part of the Mule, tli.it
n?- action should be ta.ien without ma?
ture advisement. Ho asked the .Senate
10 retrain from committing Itself on
the question before ? report had been
rendered on it by tho Committee on
I'.oeds.
Senator Felkes spoke vigorously in
favor of the resolution. "If further In?
formation Is still needed on this Im?
portant question," ho said. "the!. It l<
high time for the Senate to begin
holding night sessions to catch up
with the trend of events." The matter
has been discussed with such thorough?
ness and with so much detail lr. the
press and by public speakers, tlir.ught
Senator Fulkos, thut no one was In
need of more, information than that
already possessed. To refer the reso?
lution to the committee, he said, would
mean another delay of fifteen to twen?
ty days, when Its consideration at the
earliest possible moment was absolute?
ly necessary to permit of tho import?
ant readjustments that would be made
necessary by the abrogation of the shoe
contract and the working of the con
I Vlct? on the public roads.
To Get Senate's tipinioi.
i in support of his resolution, which
I had been Interpreted In the course ?f
i the dehnte to mean the discontinuance
of the contract policy as a practice.
Senator Holt stated that he Introduced
it primarily to establish the opinion
of the Senate on the question?to find
cut If the issue was live. He Cwisent
ed to senator Walker's proposai tha<
the resolution be laid over for con
bidcratlon to-day.
