Matter Now Must Be Decided

CHARLESTON, W. Va., May 24.?A
heavy load was at least temporarily
lifted from the shoulders of the Democratic
majority in the West Virginia
House of Delegates late yesterday
when that branch of the Legislature
passed its appropriation bill, somewhat
changed from the form in which
it was reported out by the committee
on Finance and Taxation.
Amid much confusion the House or
Delegates struggled with the general
appropriation bill during the entire
forenoon session. Taking up the
measure yesterday morning, the
amendment to purchase several hundred
acres of land adjacent to the State
Insane Asylum at Spencer was adopted,
but later an effort was made to
strike it out, as was the case with nearly
every amendment adopted, the chair
being constantly confronted with
points of order.
Additional fire was added to the proceedings
when Bassel of Lewis county,
an aged graduate of West Point, asked
that the $7,500 appropriation to send
ex-Union and ex-Cbnfederate soldiers
to the Vicksburg reunion be stricken
out. Patrick of Kanawha joined him

others opened a verbal attack on the
two men which was brought to an end
when the chair proniDiteu runner discussion
and the Bassel amendment
was defeated.
The bill was sent to the Senate and
concurrence was asked of that body.
The Senate took up the measure shortly
after 5 o'clock, after a very short
session during the earlier afternoon,
and referred it to its committee on Taxation
and Finance.
Indicating by its activity that it is
making an effort to bring the session to
an early close, the House worked until
after 6 o'clock on its calendar, killing
a number of bills after they had reached
second reading. Those which expired
at that stage include that taxing
transportation of oil and gas. The others,
relating to trapping and gigging
fish, to cultivation of foodstuffs and
conservation of crops.
A new bill was substituted for that
providing protection to the citizens of
the state and their property during the
war. This substitute was offered by
Delegate Taylor of Fayette, and provides
for a volunteer regiment for the
Thfl hudent resolution which has
been under consideration in one or the
other houses since a few days aftei
the Legislature convened, finally was
agreed on after a conference committee
