That resolu tion cannot now ho recalled, but some I members organized a kick, and to-day Mr. ) Davidson, ot Marlon. Introduced a resolu V tlon which In effect repudiates the removal resolution adopted Wednesday. It declares 1 that undue hasto was exhibited In the man ner ot forcing tho consideration of tho resolution through tho house before the , J members hnd an opportunity to see or ' ' read It or acquaint themselves with Its ' J provisions, charging that It was put through tho senate with equal haste, being ' railroaded through both houses In tho un 1 etlrnteillv short time ot about three (hours from the time copies were laid on tho desks ot members, ntul holding that by the provisions ot the resolution the people ot Sedalla and the surrounding towns wore '. not bound to pay one dollar, thus entailing upon tho taxpayers ot this state a possl ' ble expense ot several million dollars, ns well as wiping out millions ot dollars' worth of property ot citizens of this slate, I without due consideration or opportunity I to bo heard, and resolving by the house, the senate concurring, that all deplored the unreasonable haste with which the resolu tion was railroaded through both houses and condemn such mode of procedure as dangerous, unfair and unwise. Mr. Davidson supported his resolution by a speech, lie held that legislative bodies should not act so hastily, and as for him self he regretted that It had been done, lie would favor capital removal, but thought conditions should bo demanded, which are not provided by tho removal res olution, Davis, of Taney, declared that ho voiced thu sentiments expressed by the gentleman from Marion., John T. Crisp said ho wanted to live to dee the capital removed; that since he had been in Jefferson Cliy this winter he had been compelled, for want of better quarters, to live on Tncumonla hill, close to Pneumonia cemetery, no better place , being obtainable. ) Moore, ot Mississippi, censured tho hasto with which tho resolution ot removal was passed, Hrltehett. ot Howard, said speeches now, undertaking by Indirection to undo or pre judice removal, are Inopportune: that, in his judgment, the people of the state have a right to express themselves. "These barren hills were never intended by a kind Creator for tho site ot Missouri's cupitnl." , Avery, of Lincoln, addressed the house along the same lines. .... Mr. liothwell Justilled the resolution by declaring that it was time that the vexed question bo settled by n voto of the people, lie said that Sedalla is in earnest ami in tends to put up her deposit and to build tho state buildings and to give tnem free ot cost to the state If the amendment to the constitution prevails nt tho general election In 1S9G. As for himself, he was al ways willing to trust the people. He ihrtiiirht eighteen months miltlcient time in which to consider thu resolution, and tho proposed removnl. Avery, of Lincoln, urged that the pcoplo of the stato had not demanded and do not ask for the removal ot thu capital from Jefferson City to Sedalla, or to any other '"jlajor nittinger, of St. Joseph, followed. In favor ot Jefferson City for tho seat of permanent state government. Mr. Moran, of Ituchnnan county, followed In defense of his vote upon the removal resolution, lie said the question of capital removal had embarrassed tho legislature ot Missouri during twenty years, and he voted ns ho did, not so much because ho would favor removnl, but beeauso It would settle thu question for nil time to come. Mr. Welnholil said that ho was personally in favor of removal, but that ho would voto against the resolution Wednesday because it was rushed so hard, and that for the Protect Yourself from tho-wily dealer who sub etitutes an inferior article for what you order.

A the session of the legislature Is now within six cr seven days ot the close tho members, as well ns outsiders, ore beginning to take an Inventory, si to speak, in older to see what has been done. In round numbers, l.COO hills 'have been Introduced. Of these more than one-half lire local bills, and of the local bills nearly one-half are acts to vacate townslto and parts ot townsltcs. In matters ot general legislation, com intuitively little has been done as yet. In ract, the two houses have been working at cross purposes to a considerable extent. What ono has passed tho other has knocked over. The senate passed a Joint resolution call ing for a constitutional convention. Tho house defented It. The house passed a resolution authorizing the appointment of a committee to pre pare a general bill, revising tho tat and assessment laws of tho state. Thu senate promptly killed It and laid the lifeless form ot the resolution on the table. Thuro Is a good deal ot playing for posi tion, especially on the part ot the senate. For example, that body has passed a max imum freight and fare bill, lowering the rate of fare to 2 and t cent per mile, and forbidding, under heavy penalties, the Is suance ot any passes except to employes and to members of the stato board ot rail road assessors, when actually engaged In assessing tho railroad property ot the state. Within a few days, however, of the passage ot this stringent antl-p.iss legisla tion, the senate passed a bill compelling railroads to Issue passes to shippers. The senate Isn't going on a question of consist ency, but on the question ot how to make a record. Both houses have agreed on a seed grain bill appropriating 4100,000 to furnish seed grain to the counties In the western part of the state. The house has passed tho bill appropriat ing KO.OUO for the purpose of making ex periments In Inlgatlon. The senate has also passed an irrigation bill appropriating about one-fourth as much. Neither bill will be a law, us they stand at present, hut the probability Is that a compromise meas ure appropriating about fcS.OM will become a law. - .-.'-"-' Iloth houses have promptly passed two bills, each appropriating :',000 for the re lief of destitute Western settlers. The house lias passed a fe.- and salary bill which will cut down the fees and sal aries of the county otllelnls of the state to the amount of Jluft.M") per annum, but so far the bill Is hanging lire In the senate. The senate has passed a free text bill, without state untfoinilty. The house .seems likely to pass a state uniformity school book bill, but without the free text book feature. The probability Is that neither bill will become a law. The hniist. has passed a Judicial appor tionment bill, cutting off six of the thirty live Judicial districts of the state, but It Is understood that some of the leading sena tors anions the l'opullsts arc preparing to attack the mcasuic In that body, which makes Its fate uncertain. The house has passed a bill appropriat ing $.'.n.i'M and levying a half mill tax to continue the building of the state lions-. The proceeds- of the tax and approptlatlon. It Is estimated, will amount to $27ri,f) for the biennial period. It stems probable that tills bill will pass the senate with little or no modification. The most important legislation that has passed both houses Is the appellate court bill, which provides for the appointment ot six appellate Jndgirs, with limited Jurisdic tion in civil eases. This bill tlrst passed the senate and then passed the house, with slight modification. A compromise has been agreed upon In the matter of the ap pointment of the Judges, who. no doubt, will be composed of three Itepubllcans, two l'opullsts and one Democrat. Ho far as the appropriations to state in stitutions are concerned, they have been liberal so far. In fact,' the appropriations have been greater this session than appro priations made at previous sessions. Ho far only one stnto ntllce hns been dis pensed with, that of state veterinarian, or "horso doctor," as It Is commonly and de risively called. On the other hand, If the Inlgatlon bill passes, at least three new olllees will be created. Several measures have been Introduced to change or repeal tho prohibitory law, which will die In tho committee before they reach either house. A resolution nlsn hns been Introduced In the hnuso to resubmit the prohibitory amendment, which will not, in nil probability, ever reach a vote even. Within the next week tha two houses will have lo wrestle with tho balance of the appropriation hills, and they will ho largo enough to be serious. The regular appro priations will ho large and there will bo deficiency appropriations amounting In all to $100,(0 or thereabouts. I' stands for purity, power and plenty.

Members of the, house who are supposed to know home thing of tho purpose ot I'resldent Cleve land, do not credit tho reports that he has any dellnlto Intention to call an extra ses sion of congress, They do not claim to know what the Intentions of the president may be, but they argue from circumstances; that nn extra session Is improbable, Tho outflow of gold from thu treasury has ceased for tho time, nnd these members believe, retlectlng, perhaps, tho current opinion iu ndmlnlstrntlon circles, that the recent bond issue will tide the govern ment over for several months, and per haps put tho treasury upon Its feet, so to bpeak, If tho prediction of Secretary Car Hale.' that the receipts are to meot ex penditures, bo (itllllieii.
