When the question "f 1,10 j assngo of this hill ramp up thl nftcr l.oon, Mr. Amr.v of Brighton, speaking t i a question of petsonnl privilege-, re sente-d the Imputation made on the floor last night by Mr, Hiyant of Ludlew tint becuusc he la an attornpy of reenrcl nt Island Pond for the Clrand Trunk rail way hp had been unduly Influcn- ed In Advocating this bill and that II was ' cloudy legislation." He also answered the arguments made last evening by Mr Martin of Rrookllno and Mr. Peaii , Newport, lie reiterated that the Grand Trunk railway was the only one that Mood out for New Englnnd differentials.

By a yea-and-nay voto of 169 to 24 the House this morning fulfilled one of Its campaign pledges which was a plank In tho platforms of both parties during the last campaign, by passing the employers' liability bill Introduced 1 y Mr. Peck of Burlington. This was t ikon up this morning as unfinished business, and was amended yesterday 'cludlne farmers, domestics and log drivers from Its provisions. Just before adjournmpnt this fore noon the House had an unusual debate on the bill establishing a municipal rrurt In the town of MIddlebury. It was peculiar from the fac't that six representatives from Addison county opposed the passage of the bill, and it was favored by Mr. Martin of Brook Jlne. chairman of the committee on n lnor courts, because of tho fact that that commit'tee had spent so many hours in the consideration of the bill )'p did not think the committee had been treated fairly when tho repre sentatives from MIddlebury. Leicester, Lincoln, Weybiidge, Whiting, Vcr ponnes. and Sudbury now oome before the House, and say such a court wai not desired, ftevernl of these gentle men apologized to the chairman of the committee on minor courts and the 1,111 was killed. POWHR COMPANY' WINNING.

The third read ing of the bill was opposed by Mr. Hoy of Ilarnet, and also by Mr. Hunt of New He von. Mr Hunt said they proposed to b Hid there a dam 250 feet high to It und.ite t.000 acres of land, which would include a cemetery and a site of a nresont school, to generate 60,000 1 orse-power, and he argued that they 1 d i o right to take property for ji I nip use by tho right of eminent domain Mr. Hunt also argued that granting this bill would create a dan Kcrous monopoly of tho water power i' the State. He moved that the bill 1 ordered to lie until the opinion of t'c attorney-genernl can be secured ns to whether or not the section au- V orlzlng this company to take pri i.itti pmperty for private use by the rlgl t of eminent domain would be r n tltutlnn.il. Ponding the discussion o' tbls resolution the House adjourned l ill nenltiB. On reconvening this evening, the r "solution was defeated.
