After discussing for more tha an hour this afternoon the lionih Ide bill, which ptnctlcnlly will nbclNh capital punishment In Vermont, the House passed It by a yea-and-nay vote of 1(17 to 97. This bill was passed by both hoir.es eirl.- In the session and was vetoed by the Governor because It had no snvmg clause excluding cases arising bfor- February 1, 1011. Tho dis cussion nnd the vote this afternoon were really on whether or not the State wishes to abolish the death penalty. Those who advocated the passage of tho hill were Mr. Caldrwood of St. Johns bury. Mr. Bailey of Randolph, .Mr. Amey of Brighton. Mr Scolleld of Rlchfnrd, Mr. Babbitt of It'. Uingham, Mr. Pet k of Bur lington, Mi Carl I of Canaan and Mr. Mills of Hjcaate. The opposition caino from Mr. Williams of Pcacham, Mr. Bryant of Ludlow, Mr. Martin of Brooklinn and Mr. Rowland of Poultney. The House disposed of a large amount of routine tni-lness this evening nnd the speaker's desk was In good hhupe when adjournment was taken. The Senate bill providing for a union depot ln Burling ton came up. Tho Senate having refused to concur In the Houso proposal of amendment regarding appeals, the House receded fiom Its proposal of amendment and the bill has now sone to the Governor for his signature.

The first real s.gn of final adjournment came this morning In tho Senate In the sl ape of a Joint resolution providing that the president of the Srtiate and the speak M of the House adjourn their respective bodies without day Saturday, J.uunry 2S, at S:0O a. m. The resolution was offered by Senator Edgerton and was adopted with out debate and with a tone that appealed W though the Senate really meant It. The Hnu"o claims to bi. in n position where it can dispose of its business by Fat unlay and.lt has been fi.ired that tho railroad bill might hold up matters In the Senate so that budy could not finish. Sen ator Archibald, chairman of the special Senate committee, which bus th railroad bill under consideration, ( Ud this morning that tho bill would be ie;.urted, one way or the other, to-monow morning and he did not believe tha consideration of It would delay mattors so but what the Sen ute would be ready to adjourn when the House was. ADJOURNMENT IN DOl'BT. The Senate this afternoon roconsidvred Its voto passing tho Joint icsolutlon pro ruling for final adjournnv nt next Satur da'- morning. This wa done on motion of Senator Tnplln. Senator Gordon told the Senate that he did not ihlr.k It was possible to llnish up the work by that time. The motion was opposed by Sen ator Archibald who said If a date was lixed, the work would be completed In time. It would furnish on Incentive to work a llttlo harder to bring It about Tho vole was reconsidered and the mo tlon laid on the table. Senator Sheldon Introduced an import ant bill relating to the regulation of cnu- .i ses, an abstract of which will lie found 111 the olflclal report. Tho Sonato adopted a joint resolution giving the members of the committee on revision of bills $1 a day pay In addition to their regular pay as members. In the face of an adverse report, Senator Porter secured the advancement to a third rend Ing of the bill to Ineoiporate a now bank In St. Johnsbury to bo known as the Fi delltv Savings Bank Trust company After some discussion the Senate this morning adopted the joint resolution which originated In the House, calling upon tho nttornoy-KHii'iMl to conduct thiough the puhdo Rervlcn commission an Investigation Into tho rates of tmnsporta tlon on tho Rutlnnd road. Tho resolution wns reportwl favorablv bi the railroad committee. Senator Arcldhnld objcctfsl n the ground that he did not think any thing could be accomplished under Ihe resolution than the public service commls rlon was In n position to do now. Sena lor Grlswold cnlled attention to the re peated raise of the rate between South Hero and Burlington and that nn Invest I nation wns needed. Senator Powell also mpported the resolution as did Senator Barden. The Senate passed in concurrence with proposals of amendment H. 431. relating lo appeals by taxpayeis nnd tuwns from appraisals. This was not done, however. until an amendment ndopted yesterday raising the fee of witnesses from ft to p! bad been tuconslden-d ami the amount cut down to H. After Home discussion tho bill rIv ln 'the State hoard of health nddl tlonal supervision over "water supplh nnd the supplies of Ice was killed I'L'imtoi Gordon stated that If Ihe State kept on giving additional pow ers to thn State board of he ilth It would bo Impossible to be troafed for la. common cold without Urul uettluif permission from tho board. Senator Darling favored the hill. TAX BILL MAKES HEADWAY. The bill mnltlns a flat-rnto of taxa tion of 7-10 of one per cent, on In tangibles was called up by Senator Gordon who In a lengthy argument favored Ita passage The Scnato then went Into a committee of tho whole, with Senator Gordon In tho chair, to nllow Tax Commissioner CURhman to give the Senate his Idea of the bill. The bill wan ordered to a third read nlg. This bill has been held up pending the question of Its being a revenue bill nnd as such should havo originat ed In 'the House. The House ways nnd means committee han, howover, agreed If the Senate passes the bill lo Introduce a similar bill In the House eo thoro may he no question nbout tho cons'ltutlonnllty of Its or igin. There is llttlo prospect of such a hill passing tho House, ns thoso who are opposed to It In that body nre preparod to show where It would probably result In a deficit which would have to he made up ,by an In creased tax on real estate. Mr. Fletcher of Cavendish Is strongly opposed to the Hill at the present time us ho snys the State has no basis for determining just how such n law will work out. ,He thinks tho bill passed nt this session granting additional powers to the State tax commissioner will afford two years hence the datn for an Intelligent consideration of the matter and until tlmt can be had thinks It Is all a matter of theory. Only t.wo States In the union have such a law and a New Hampshlro commission has just turned down a similar proposition as not suitable for that State. The Senate killed the lobby bill, passed yesterday by the House, without debate. QUESTION OF PROGRESS. The House hill to Incorporate thu Fifteen-Mile Falls Power company was debated at considerable length this morning In the House. It was called up by Mr. Amey of Brighton, who made a strong argument In favor of the bill. He raid this would not Injure tho smaller power plants In the State. This company Intends to wholesale electricity and the only opposition against the bill is from men of a negative quanlltv. If this bill becomes a law, Vermont v. Ill advance M ears In Industrial development. Mr. Corry of Montpellor resented the statement made by, Mr. Amey of Brighton that those who were oppos ing tho bill wore hindering progress In Vermont. He said that If this bill becomes a law. thoso who am de veloping small power plants will be timid of Investment. Mr. Corry char actoilzed the bill In question as a wnterpower trust. He offered several amendments which gave Vermont ci ncorns preference In the sale of electric power, but they were all voted down, as wete the amendment proposed by Mr. Roy of Barnet, and the bill went through by 11 big ma jority. The bfll which piovldes that muni cipal electric light plan'ts located out side the limits of the municipality by which tho same are owned should not be exempt from taxation brought out lively debate ln Mie House this morning This bill, which wns Intro duced by Mr. Gatchell of Charleston, wa.s favored by -Mr. Fletcher of Caven dish, and opposed by Mr. Barron of jarton and Mr. Bronson of Hardwlck. It was shown In the discussion that should the bill become a law the elec tric light plants at Hardwlck, Bnr ton nnd Swnnton would be the only ones In tho Slate tha1 would be taxed. The bill was passed. Tho bill appropriating ,2S,non for now dormitories at the Stnto Indus trial school at Vergennos was order ed to the third reading In the House this morning without debate. The House had a jolly debate this evening on tho bill appropriating J3,or) to repair a highway leading Ircni Wards bo ro station to Wardsboro village. Tho conimlttfo on highways and bridge re turned the hill without recommendation. Mr. Battell of Middlebury favored tnk Ing this money out of the highway fund, but the House did not approvo of this, iiixl after several speechea In favor of the appropriation had been made, the bill went to a third reading with a, 1 ush. SALARY INSTEAD OF PER DIEM. The, House this afternoon adopted a Joint resolution introduced by Mr. Bill ings of Woodstock, which looks toward placing the mmbr of tho Legislature on a snlnry Instead of a per diem basis. The resolution provides that the secretary of state, the auditor of accounts, and the State treasurer aro appointed a com mission to look Into this matter and If they deem It advisable to make their recommendntions to the Legislature of 1912 nnd ulso to make recommendations in legard lo mileage. Mr. Stone of Wal- linglord Introduced another Joint reso lution which was referrtd to the Joint committee on Slate nnd court oxpenses which provides for paying Si per day ad ditional during the session to Senator F. C, Archibald, chairman of tho tcvlslon committee. Representative Johnson of Cr.stloton Is quite seriously 111. He was taken to his home this evening by Representative Jennings of llubbardton, and on motion of Mr. Stono of Wnlllngford Mr. John son and Mr. Jennings were excused for lue remainder of the session. The House handled over 70 bills to-day. At Ihe evening sessl"n. lx Senate and IB House bills were killed. Tho record of the slaughter may bo found In the official riporl of the evening proceedings. The House this evening refused to adopt on Its part a Joint resolution pro ildliig for tho printing: at the expense of the State of l.OiO extra copies of thn leport of the tf rcentenary i.oinmlfslon, not to exceed an expense of 10 centB a copy. OFFICIAL RECORD OF DAY SENATE MORNING. C.illtsl to order by the president Ueo llonal exeiclses by chaplain. Senator Sheldon asked und had le.ie to Introduce a bill. On motion of Senator Daniels, thu Senate r-onsldeied Its vote on II. 131 rt luting to appeals by taxpayers and towns from appraisals, ordering a thlr reading, and struck out amendment In rre.iHlnK the witness fees from Jl to S3 per day on motion of Senator Duntals.

BOTH SIDES IN LAST DITCH Chances Favor Adverse Report To-day by Senate Committee on B. & M. Bill Passed by the House. Montpeller, Jan. 23. The final act In the great railroad fight between the Cen tral Vermont and Boston & Maine, over the attempt of the latter road to got a light of way through tho railroad yards nt Brattleboro, took place In the Senate chamber this nfteruoon nnd was drama tic in the Intensity of the feeling mani fested by the attorneys engaged. This feeling, sufficient!! great at the outset, Increased ns the hearing progressed until, when one attorney deliberately accused another of making a false statement, the committee decided It would be wise to adjourn. Tho hearing was before the special committee of the Senate, composed of the judiciary and railroad committees, which hns the bill passed by the House under consideration. Tho Senate chamber was crowded to tho point of suffocation and the crowd stayed to the finish which came about seven o'clock. Apparently to offset the influence of the large Brnt tleboro delegation, about 23 of the prom inent business men of St. Albans came down at noon and attended the hearing. The Important feature of the hear ing was the submission of an amend ment to the hill by Mr; Stickney of the Boston Maine road. This amend ment provides that If at any 'time the location of the Boston X- Maine tracks, as proposed In the bill. Interferes wit i the terminal facilities of the Cntral Vorniont they shall be changed as tho railroads may agice. If the ronds fall 'to ngree. the public service torn. I mission Is to settl' tie matter. .Mr. Stickney slated" that till" was offered to meet the objection that the grant ing of the rights asked for by th5 Bo ton &j Maine would cripple the Central Vermont In the use of Its i at Brattleboro. NO ROOM FOR A CHANGE. The force of the amendment wa a llttlo later rather do.strood bv Judge Palmer of Ihe Central Vermont who showed by ICnglneer Thompson of tlr I'os'ion & Maine that for a portion of Ihe way through the yards It would be Impossible to change the location of the 11. & M. tracks, even If such Interference could be shown, for the simple reason that there was no place to chnni-'o them to. In his nmimcnt Mr. Stickney laid special -lress upon the fact that no citizen or taxpiyer of Vermont had ap peared as an Individual before the com mittee and opposed tills change. He said nil the opposition 'came from Grand Trunk railroads of Canada. To refute this Mr. Darling later produced n letter from Albert Tuttlo of Fair Haven, one of the bondholders of the Central Ver mont road, protesting ngalnst the cbnnge as likely to affect the vdue of the se curities of the road. II was this same statement mnde In closing by Mr. Stick ney that brought out the retort from Mr. Darling that the statement was -ib- solutely false. Mr. Stickney also made reference to the fact that all the shippers of Brat tleboro desired the passage of the hill and when Mr. Darling inuuired about Mr. Crosby, who at ,1 previous hearing stated to the committee that he was not In favor of tho change, Mr. Stickney referred to Mr. Crosby as the tool of the Grand Trunk rond. Mr. Stickney clearly put up to the committee that If the bill did not pass, the Boston Jt .Maine road would build the link between Brattleboro and South Vernon on the Now Hampshire side of the river nnd that the Bratth'boro passenger station would then be located a mile nnd a half from tho village. Ho al.so referred to the lo" of taxes, some Jin.noo n year, that tne State would suffer It the road was bull! ln New Hampshire. BETTER GET OFT OF VERMONT. Mr. Darling In his remarks stated very plainly that the people of Brat tleboro were Interested In the matter only to tho extent that they were go ing to havo $241,000 spent In their village and vicinity. Brattleboro was not to contribute one cent of this but thoy were contributing by assisting the B. d M. to take nwav the prop erty of the Central Vermont road. It was coming out of tho Central Ver mont and ho thought if this was the prico the people of Vermont hnd got to pay for this proposed change, the Boston Si Maine hnd better go back to New HampHhlte, where they were upposed to hnve more Influence with Legislatures than they did In Vor niont. Ho also thought If (here were people In Brattleboro who favored such a deal, thoy had better go over to New Hampshire with the Boston Ar Maine. Mr. Darling polntod out how thn proposed changes would Injure the Central Vermont nnd stated that the yards would be loft In such a condi tion that hi road would be put to an expense of from $100,000 to $150,000 to llll them In and get them In slinpe. Senator Gordon Umpired or .Mr. mick- ney If under the bill the Boston ,t Maine could not raise its own tracks ami full to raise those of tho Conlral Vermont as the bill provided that tho clmrlor sho'Ild hold tiood a to all the work .vniooUtcd ui to a cert iln Hi"" "I'd full- ' id to fix any penalty for not complet ing the remainder of the changes usitisi for Mr Stlcknc-j udmltted tho bill might be open to that construction and uld bo would b willing to draw an amendment which would cover that point If the committee so desired. BOTH FOREIGN CORPORATIONS. Senator Gordon also pressed Mr. Stick ney for a reason why the Boston & Maine would not lie satisfied with track ago rights over two or more tracks ihrough tie Brattleboro yards allowing tho tltlo to the tracks to remain In tho CentrnI Vermont. Tho objection raised y Mr. Stickney wna that In that event l lie tralns""of tho Boston &. Maine would h.ivo to be operated over those track.s subject to the train orders of the Cen tral Vermont. Coiusldcruhlo Importance w.ih attached by the counse'l of tho Boston & Maine to tho fact that It was n foreign corporation that was opposing tho passage of tho bill but this wns In a measure offset by the statement of tho Central's counsel that It wa-s ns connection of the Canadian Pacific thnt the Boston & Mnlno was so Insistent on having tho right to take the land of 'he Central Vermont at Brattleboro. The whole hearing was marked by the lepeated Interruptions of counsel nnd tho exchange of more or lea pointed remarks thnt shoved that both sides were lighting in the laj!t ditch. Tho decision of the committee will not he reached until after tho morning session of the Senate as Senntor Archibald stated this evening that no meeting of the com mittee to vote on the report to be made would bo held until that time. The chances nt present are ln favor of an nd verso report on the Mil. MAYOR CARPENTER TO RUN Itu4lnnd Executive Cteeoimtders nnd Will Oppose ti. C. Vnderlilll. Kutlanrt. Jan. 25.

NO CHANGE LIKELY TO-DA? 'Insurgents" Given Scant No ticeDesertions Only Talk ed About Justice Gerard Again Mentioned. Albany, N, Y., Jan. 25. Evidence of a break ln the line-up that has deadlocked the Legislature over the election of a. United States senator for the past two weeks, appeared to-night In several quar ters. Although there was no organized movement. Individual members wero more open In expressing their dissatisfaction with the prolongation of the present situation and developmer.tr. are expeotsd soon thnt will set some now flsures on tho tally slips o the joint assembly by another week. No one could be found, however, ready to predict that the situ ation would show any outward chang during tho three days that remain for balloting this week. Until to-day prospects ot a break wer based on the efforts made by the sup porters of Wm. V. Sheehan to win ovtr enough votes from the men whe aUcml the democratic caucus to effect Mr Slice hari's election. But to-dny after Nrnuit L. Mack, the national chairman, ard Wlnfleld A. Huppuch, Stato chairman it the democratic orgmizatlon, had tried In vnln to bring tho inurgc:iis" Intj line, some of those who had voted fir Mr. Sheeh.in mainly b'eca-.ise th. v co' -fldered It their duty under ca.icus ob ligation began to look for another solu tion of the problem. It Is acknowledged that the leaders of the New York county organization axe the only ones qualified to ppeaK with au thority on this subject, and hitherto, from Mr. Murphy down, they have insisted that the patty was bound by all party principles to elect Mr. Sheehan, To-night, lion ever, one of the most prominent Tam many men acknowledged that tho Uaders were discussing tb possibility of aban doning Mr. Sheehan 'ur another andi- dat. Tho apparent hopelessness of tho situa tion as It now stands was illustrated t -day when the seventh joint ballot gavo the 11 democratic candidates exaetlj the same vote as they received yesterday The prevailing Impression -o-nlght wa.s that the leaders behind Mr. Sheehan have not yet ghen up hope that tho opposition may weaken, but the number and variety of tho -umors of a new deal could not be ignored. Several of the up-State demo rrats who voted against Shee-han ln the caucus but accepted the decision of. tho caucus majority lo-day discussed a plan to serve notice on Mr. Murphy that if the deadlock continued much longer thoy must call for another candidate. After somo debate they decided not to act until next week, because a number of them ex pected to be absent from the sessions of Friday and Saturday. Some of these legislators said thoy were being showered with letters and telegrams from homo urging them to take some rndical action. Their attitude. they said, did not mean hostility to Mr. Sheehan, only a recognition of the be lief that he could not bo elected and a desire to clear the situation and let the Legislature git down to Its regular bus iness. . "INSURGENTS" ARE NEGLECTED. Tin of desertions from the Sheehan camp lias scarcely reached the prop osition of a compromise candidate. It was admitted that If a new man took Mr Shcohan's place In tho lead, he must be acceptable to the New York dele gation and there was somo renewal of tho tendency toward Justice James W. Gerard which was noticed early last week. For the first time since their famoui Njlt" the "Insurgontn" te-nljrht received fant notice. Talk of the possibility of republican Interference has been aban doned. It became known to-night that several dvs ngo some of the more In dependent republicans ln both houses canvassed the suggestion of uniting sdth the sntl-flheehan democrats on some prominent Independent, but ahandoned the Idea from lack of support TM statements by tho vnrlous republic? le.idnis nbout this time, it Is said, wf called forth by this movement.
