THE TIME3 Monday. April 15, 191S. CALL GOMES AFTER TRIP OF INQUIRY Gov. Goodrich Goes to Jef fersonsville to Ascertain As to Housing of Inmates, May Be Able to "Get By" Without Special Session. Times Bureau. At Stattb Capital. INDIANAPOLIS. April 15. When Governor Goodrich gets back from Jef fersonvine. where ha went today to in vestigate the situation at the state re formatory, lie will mafcs known wheth er lie 'WiU call a special session of the 1-glslature. He went to Jeffersonville o ascertain Just how the inmates of the reformatory could be housed until 'he next regular session of the liglsla- .ire, or whether it would be possible to house them that long under present con ditions. Since flrs destroyed a number if the important buildings at the re formatory several months ago the Chousing problem has been a serious one. snd it affords perhaps the main reason dr a special session, if one is held. There is every indication that the governor will call the special session. Kiit it need causa no surprise if he does not. It is known that very heavy pressure is being: brought to bear on him to avoid a srecial session at this time, and there is a bare possibility that :r may be made strong enough to shake i s notion that the session must be held. Soi.se persons say that It should be fin easy matter for the governor to bor j ow enough money from banks to tide the state ever until the next regu'.ar session, thus making it unnecessary to . ali tha legislators to this city. It has fven been suggested that the banks r robably would step forward and of-f-r to lend money to the governor for that purpose, but the fact remains that i. one of the banks have so stepped and Cere is nothing in sight to lead to the belief that they will do so. The gov err or is aware that there is a possi ,,;. that he might be able to "get by" without a special session, but he does r.o: know whether he could or not. And a if he should g to the banks and borrow money to meet the pressing r.eeds of the state, relying on the lejrir lature to legalize his action at the next tegular session and appropriate money to pay 1". all back, who know3 what kind of '.'stink" the opposition might stir up in the next session over the question of hts right to bind the state's credit In that mnr.ner. Some people are trytng to create the impression that Governor GooJrich is Fimpiy crazy for a r" T , session. But those who know him best say that this Is not true. He is not more anxious for e special session than anyone else, but l" will call it if he finds he can't get iCong without it. So one realizes bettor than the gov f !'!!i.t the dangers and complications tlat are wrapped tip in a special ses sion a this time. None of them can .. e him any pointers along that lino.

One of the bugaboos that is beins raised by some of those opposed to the special sesslopr is the cry that the gov ernor will dump into the hopper of the session his celebrated excise tax bill, which raised so much trouble at the 3917 session and was fought with such bitterness that it failed to get by. Some are sayir.gr that he is sure to trot it out again. L'ut the governor has stated def.nitely that nothing of the kind will happen. He has said that the excise tax proposition will not bs brought up at tho special sesion, Lut even this state ment has not stopped some of the ob jectors from continuing to use it as an argument against the issuance of a call. It Is r.ot the intention of the gover nor to present any measures to the leg islature that will cleg up the works, lie has outlined his program and he in sists that he will stick to it and that he wants the legislature also to stick to 't. There is no certainty, of course, that the members will cor.f.na thent Beles to the governor's program, how ever. There is danger that some of the statesmen will come to the city with a aiis full of pet bills which they will throw in in the hope that '.hey can slop something through when the fight is the hottest. Leaders of both parties, however are sayirr that thts should not be done. A special session, they say. is not the proper time for a general run of legisla tion, but it should be confined to those subjects on which legislation is need ed to meet emergencies. If a special cession is called the member who comes here prepared to dump in a lot of un necessary bills will 'immediately be come the unpopular member of the leg islature, and it will be no surprise if the bipr majority jump on his measures and beat them to death. Kverybodv will be anxious to get through and re turn hmo as quickly as possible. ,ut Miey win not be willing to do so until J they have played a little politics and j mail.: a little campaign thunder out of it ter. 5.
