0 lit VOTE DECIDED BY SPEAKER HOWE Ho Helps Send Bill to Third Reading That Does Away with Hanging in Vermont. CAMEL'S HUMP GIYEN STATE Senate Committee Will Hear B. & M. and 0. V. Argue Their Case This Afternoon No Brattleboro Trip. Montpeller, .Tan. 14. The House dis cussed for an hour nr more this after noon the hill which appropriates $30,000 In the next six years for erecting nt Ilrnttloboro n building for tho care nnd rducntlon of defective children, for which the late Wllllnm Austlne of Brattleboro appropriated W),000. The only opposition to the bill itself camo from Mr. Howard of Whiting. The main discussion this nfternoon wasi over the nmendmcnt proposed by Mr. Amey of Brighton, which provided that Imbecile children shall first lie cared for. Strong speeches In favor of the main bill were made by Mr. Martin of Brookllne-, Mr. Corry of Mont peller. Mr. Hatch of Strafford and others. Tor tho first time this session, the f-peakcr's vote was required on n tie. '1 his was when the House bill relating to homicide came up for a third reading. This la a substitute for the bill vetoed early In the hessUin by Governor Mead, because the hill which he refused to sign contained no roving clause which ex cluded perilling cases. This bill provides that Juiles may qualify their verdicts In murder cases by adding the words "with capital punishment" and practically does Rvay with hanging In Vermont. The vote In favor of the Ihird reading of the bill was S7 to SI. Speaker Howe voted )u the affirmative, and It went to a third reading. Mr. Ifattell of Mlddleburv to-day turned over to Governor Moad a deed of 1,000 acres of land on Camel s Hump, The ;Iend provides that this shall be used us ti State iKirk, that no automobiles shall to run on tho mountain., except on a roadway built for them, that the forests there are to be. preseived and that the name of the mountain In the future Is to bn left to the good senso of the people of tho State. Mr. Battell does not press hi suggestion made when ho first ten dered this mountain to the State that the namo of the peak lo changed to "Mount Ethan Allen." SENATE DECLINES JUNKET. The Senate again this morning refused it go to Brattleboro to look over the ground of tho railroad war between the fVntral Vermont and Boston ft Maine ri ilroads. This time the proposition was tr go at the expense of tho State. The matter came up by Senator Harden offor lrg a Joint resolution providing that tho Henate, on a committee of the whole, visit 3 .rattleboro, the expense of the trip to be borne by the State. Tho resolution was read twice and re fi rred to the rommittee on State and t ourt expenses. This did not ault Senator liarden, who moved that the rules bo sus pended and the resolution placed upon Us passage. Senator Powell objected to a tuspenslon of the rules and raised a point ,.f order tli blocked this move for a while. A little later after a bunch of House bills had been referred, Senator Oordon v. ho had been doing a little visiting among toe senators, moved thnt the committee on State and court expenses be relieved from further consideration of the resolu tion. This was agreed to and he then moved that the rules be suspended and the resolution be placed upon Its passage h. that tho Senate might find out whether in not It was going to make the trip. The rules weie suspended and the resolu tion killed by a vote of n to six. On demand of Senator Harden the yeas md nays were taken. Those senators who voted against the resolution were: Archibald, Clark, Coolldgc, Cushman, Cutts, Halo, Daniels, Darling, Edgerton, Oordon. Grlswold, Hitchcock, Norton, Ike, Powell, foaver, Sheldon, Shopard- .n. Smith, Taplln and Tuttle. Those fu v .ring the resolution were Adams, B.ir i.n, Ilutler, Buttertleld, Davii and Ly ford.

The afternoon session of the Sennto lasted only half nn hour and nothing of Importance was transacted. OPEN SRASON FOR TROUT. Tho House this morning disposed of a largo amount of routine business. Tho principal debate was on the Houso bill rolntlng to tho open Ben son for trout. As nmended and order ed to a third roadlng, this bill makes the opiin season for trout flBhlng In streams from April IS to August 1, and In Inkes and ponds from April 15 to September 1, and mnken these dates uniform throughout the State. The nmondinent providing for these dates wnii proposed by Mr. Bryant of Lud low nnd was favored by him, by Mr, Stafford of Brattleboro nnd Mr. Hill ings of Woodstock, Mr. Battel! of Mlddlebury said that August Is the month of summer visi tors In Vermont nnd they want to go trout fishing. They do not want the streams closed In August, but for all that, he did not oppose the amendment. .Mr. Orvls of Manchester proposed an amendment to tho nmendmcnt malt lng the open season for brook trout fishing from May 1 to August 15. He thought tho original amendment would Injure the summer Eticst busi ness at tho large summer hotels who largely Increase the grand list of many towns. He said these summer visitors do not como to Vermont until nfter July and thoy do not want to be rut off from trout fishing as early as August 1. Mr. Howe of Bennington did not favor tho later opening of tho season. but ho favored the opening when the Ashing Is poor. He advocated a close season commencing August 1. TROPT mix IS PASSED. Mr. Orvls of Manchester, In opposing the original amendment, said that Apill 1.1 Is too early to go fishing, that on that dato fishermen must take along too much artlllrlnl heat. Mr. Carpenter of North Held said It would soon be time to go llsh'lng and he demanded the previous eiuestlon. The demand was sustained. The amendment to the amendment pro pose d by Mr. Orvls of Manchester was lost. The amendment proposed by Mr. Bryant was adopted, and the hill was passed with few dissenting votes. The House discussed for dj hour this morning the valued policy bill on which the Joint committee on Insurance had proposed li amendments, 13 of which were adopted, and when the bill was finally recommitted to the committee It could not have been recognized by Mr Boy of Barnet who Introduced It. The appropriating of tl.OX) annually to assist tho town of Mount Tabor in repair lng and maintaining highways and bridges was nmended, making the annual appropriation J5C" and the bill was or dered to a third reading. The House killed the hill Introduced by the committee on conservation to promote the conservation of forests and the pre vention of forest fires. This hill as It came from the committee had an Amend ment which struck out all after the enact ing clause and Inserted a new section which provided for trees under 10 IncheH in diameter should not be cut, but this did not apply to farmers and on private lands. After some discussion tho bill was killed on the ground that It was class legislation and unconstitutional. ADJOURNMENT IN DOUBT. The Joint committee on final adjourn ment will probably report to-morrow. Up to this evening It has been Impossible to say whether final adjournment can If reached by next Saturday and present prospects are rather against completing the work of tho session before the middle of next week. The next two days will decide the matter. Ex-Speaker Thomas C. Cheney of Morrisville to-day presented to the State a life sire portrait of himself which will be hung with several of his predecessor In the speaker's room nt the State House. It Is pronounced by all who havo seen It as an excellent likeness. Governor Mead was given to under stand this nfternoon by those Interested In the normal school bill nnd the hills carrying nppioprlatlons for the State fair and the various county fairs that did not Intend to allow the Legislature to ad Journ until he had either signed or vetoed theso bills. That, In other words, they were going tei take no chances of a pocket veto. IT'S INFLUENCE A strong, progressive bnnk wields n powerful Influence In tho business affairs of a community.
