Both brandies of tho legislature put In a full half ilay's work this forenoon, and this nflcrnoo:i took tho first junket of the wason to tho Dane quarrle. Tho Santo adjourned .it noon until to-morrow morning, hut the louse held a brief session this evening, transacting routine business. Weather conditions were favorable for tho excursion to Mlllstajj hill this aftoi 11 ion, Tho management of tho Montpcller it Wells Hlver and Ilarro railroads ten dered a special train of six coaches for the accommodation ot tho party. Tho train left Montpeller at one o'clock and arrived shortly before five o'clock on tho return trip. Nearly every member of the House n ml Senate, with Governor Proctor and several other Stato officers, soma of whom were accompanied b ladles, made tho trip. The principal quarries wero visited ind tho owners or malinger were In at- ondnnce to explain tho workings of tho mach'try with which thess quarries are equipped, A largo majority of tho party ml never before visited thefo quarries and the trip was thoroughly enjoyable. The revision committee, this morning had shout 100 bills in Its hands that arc yet hi come Into the house, aim between 13 and to for the Senate. These, with bills that will later come In from the committers will make the total number of bids intro luccd In the House more than CX). Of ''lose, no action has been taken on at least 10 and the prospects for a final adjouni-i-"nt before Thanksgiving aro becoming ic" remote. Only one. hill was Introduced to-day In tie Senate, by Senator Van Patten, to icorporate the Turlington Mutual Fire I isurnneo company, with a capital stock of jio.ooo. The Senate refused a third reading to t i Senate bill creating the office of cat tle commissioner and defining his powers nnd duties, and finally refused to re ronsider Its vote refusing a third reading to the bill originating In the House, which had passed that body, which pro vides for election of representatives to tho general assembly by a plurality vote an the fourth ballot. A full abstract ot the bill Int"' vluced In the House by Mr. Gibson of Br.ittlehoro, creating a board of railroad commis sioners and defining Its duties, may be found in the official report of the House proceedings. Another bill Introduced by Mr. Senter of Montpcller provides for a hoard of railroad commissioners appointed ty the governor, with the advice and con sent of the Senate, the members to hold office for two years and to be removed by the governor at pleasure. Still an other hill Introduced by Mr. Flynn of Springfield nbollshes the present board of railroad commissioners nnd provides for the appointment of their successors. Mr. Chamberlain of Sheldon Introduced n bill In the Interests of obtaining correct returns of all deer killed In Vermont dur ing the open season. It provides a penalty of K for the neglect of any per son who kills a deer legally to report the same within ten days to the State fish nnd game commissioner. Mr Bailey of Essex Introducer! a bill which fixes the compensation of the State geologist and curator of the State cabinet at $5 per day, with necessary expenses. Mr. dross of Brownlngton Is strenuous ly opposed to second elas licenses for the sale of Intoxicating liquor. He Introduce.! n bill this morning which amonds the pres ent license law by doing away with 11 censo of tho second clars. Mr. Alexander of Georgia, chairman of the committee on elections, presented the report of that committee on the remon strance of Joseph Auld of Burllngon against seating Representative C. D. Gr.a- ton. Accompanying this report was a resolution declaring Mr. Gratnn entitled to his sent and tho same was unanimously ndopted. Tho full text of this report Is ns follows: REPORT ON AFLD CONTEST. Tho committee on elections to whom was referred tho remonstrance of Joeph Auld protesting against the administration of Claude D. Cirnton to a seat in this llnuso. ns the leturned member from tho City of liur'ngton, respectfully report that they have considered the same, have listened to tho rondlngs of several depo- tlons, taken some other evidence, nnd after tho most careful examination of the evidence, and the law, have unanimously ngreed to jeport as follows: That at a freemen's meeting, held In the elty rif Burlington, on September 4 last, Hine were two candidates upon the nffl. cial ballot for city representative, vlr. Jos-eph Auld and Claude I), Grnton Only one ballot was had, ami Mr. Giaton was declared elected by majority of la votes, and credentials were Issued to lilm in due form of law. That the statutory notice of contest was given In this case. It was claimed by tho contestant thai six names were added to tho oiilcial check list alter the -same had ben completed on tho Saturday night previous to tho election, ami that they wero placed un lawfully thereon; that the ballot box was leopened In ward five nnd two votes were received and counted. Admitting the truth of these claims as made by the contestant, In the ab.'rri o of any proof of fraud for whom thee parties voted, your com mittee aro unable to find that the result of this election was in nny manner af fected by the receiving of them votes, If they wero unlawfully received. 1'pon A Positive 1 CUIUS i in mm mil Is quickly nhxnrh eil. fil Itrllcf lit Once.

It was also claimed before tho com mittee, nnd there was some cvldoneo tet1 Ing to show, but not enough to warrant the committee In finding tho fact, that the assisting clerks In one of tho wards marked certain ballots for Mr. Oratou when In fact they were Instructed by trio voler to mark them for the contestant, nnd for theso reasons, as well ns thoo hereinbefore mentioned It was urged be fore the committee to go hack of tho re turns, recount the votes, nnd make an exhaustive examlnntlnn of this election In the Interest ot pure morals nnd pure poli tico, But the committee understood their sole duty to bo to consider tho I quoJIflcatlot.s nnd election ot those mem bers of this House where qualification nnd electlrn were cnllcd In question. There Is nnnthcr co-ordlnnto branch ot the Stato government, whoso special and pecullnr duty Is to guard tho public mor nls nnd defend the fair fame of the Slate, by not only Investigating alleged offences against her, but by punishing the offender, and for this purpose tho courts aro estab lished with wise nnd Just Judges, and all th machinery necessary to provide for the Investigation and punlshinont of of fenses against the State. The courts are easily accessible nnd so Jealously docs the Stale guard her ow,i ramo and digni ty that she Investigates and punishes thj slightest offense ngalnst her without cost to him who complains. The State guards the ballot boxes and makes the courts the avenger of Its violation. It Is the duly of the legislative department of tho gov ernment to pi escribe a punishment. It Is for tho Judiciary debartment to Inves tigate offenses nnd punish the offender. This seems to be a case of Judicial rather than legislative investigation. Therefore, from a consideration of tho n1iiflt trd facts, and from the evidence submitted, your committee are unani mously of tho opinion that nny further In vestigation would be fruitless In establish ing the right of Ihe claimant to a scat Ini this House, and recommend tho adoption of tho following losolutlon: Resolved, that the leturned member from the city of Burlington Is entitled 'o a seal In this House. (Signed by all the member? ot tho com mittee.! Mr. Senter o Mrr.tpeller, chairman of the committee on corporations, asked this morning that the bill Incorporating the Burlington Brewery company bo with-. drawn from the commltteoon corporations nnd referred to the Joint committee en' temperance. That commlttco did not want to tackle thl hill and an attempt was made to saddle It on the Judiciary commit tee. The House would not sanction either of these suggestions nnd tho hill Is still In the files of tnc committee on corpora tions. Tho House this morning killed the Mil requiring a .icense for dealers In ever green tiees, and later reconsidered Its voto refusing this nlll a third reading. After considerable discussion it was recommit ted to the Judicial-' committee. The first real debate of the session In the House occurred this niorn'n on tho House bill to prevent trespassing on railroads. which was taken up as a special order. Incidentally, the discussion of this bill brought out some good oratory from Mr. Ilulburd of Hyde Park, who opposed It, Mr. Bicker of C.roton and Mr. Jackson i f Barre city who favored It and others. Tho House finally refused the bill a third read ing. THE OFFICIAL RECORD. Senate Will Not Accept House's rinn for Remodeling Cattle Commission. SENATE MORNING.

Every mother possesses information I which is of vital Merest to her young naugnicr. Too often this is never imparted or is withheld until serious harm has result ed to the fjrowlnfr girl through her ipnorancei of nature's mysterious and wonderful laws and penalties.

An American whoso business frequently takes him to London tells of an amus ing conversation between the driver and conductor of a public 'bus In that city. The 'bus was fairly crowded, so the American cl'nbed to the top, where, shortly after taking his seat, he observ ed a person In a peculiar garb, with a red turban.
