(Continued from Page One.) iwv, u i: , i .i , l>otn bodies placed their approval upon the general legislative appro ion bill which carried $10,000 for mileage of the members bût this it,!. ?.

Conference committees recommended one per cent for the first year and two per cent for succeeding years. The house ac epted the report but the senate by a vote of 28 to 20 adopted a motion by Edwards for indefinite postponement. After both bodies had passed the senate bill for the submission to the voters of the question of amending « the constitution so as to provide for | a permanent tax commission the sen- j ate proceeded to kill H. B. 32 which 1 was in the nature of a i-eincarnation of the old tax commission bill which had passed the house and had been killed in the senate the previous Fri day. This last action of the senate was taken upon the grounds that the house violated the point rules which prevents the introduction of of which the subject matter is iden tical to that of a bill previously kill ed, unless five days' notice shall have bill a been given. Governor Dixon had called for an amendment to the tax classification law and a bill was passed by the house which sought to reduce the percentage to be taken on land, town and city lots for taxation valuation purposes from 30 per cent to 25 per cent, hut the senate killed this Mon day by a vote of 27 to 19. The house and senate were still at loggerheads Monday night upon the tow cement and plaster measures, which had been reintroduced in the house bearing taxation on cement at the rate of one cent per barrel and five cents per ton on plaster and which had been raised in the senate to four cents on cement and 20 cents on plaster. Unlike, in the case of the oil tax where Governor Dixon had signed the bill from the regular session carry ing one per cent, he had vetoed the cement tax bills so that if these two measures have tailed of passage in the extra session the tax will be lost to the state. Most of the lighting of the extra session has been over the tax com j mission question in its various forms, j the Dixon forces insisting upon some sort of legislation, while the antis solidly set the other way. This was hrown last Saturday when, following the defeat of the tax com mission measure in the senate on Fri , •„ <lay ' S,X b l"? b f 5rl "S » tan commis ^T°h " ?

It is still possible that at least one of the many bills making an appro priation whereby the state board of equalization may pay for the services of experts will get past the assemb ly in the concluding hours but it is very certain that no measure con ferring constitutional powers upon the tax experts will ever get through the senate. A bill was passed by both houses appropriating $10,000 for the purchase In the time the governor vetoed several measures of the regular ses of 800 acres of land for the school for deaf end blind at Boulder and on the day before adjournment the house passed a bill appropriating an ad ditional $10000 for maintenance of the tuberculosis sanitarium at Galen and $20,000 for erection of a main build ing. Although the extra session was sup posed to be short bills in excess of 50 were introduced, most of which were killed. sion of which probably the most im portant was the new counties bill, S. B. 117, which would have greatly restricted the work of creating new counties. He explained that under the provisions of this bill but one county could be created in Montana, this being the proposed county of Cruse in the eastern part of Fergus, During the past week the governor signed the Seigfricdt bill which will permit the securing of liquod for medical purposes by means of phy cians' pcrscriptions under the term of the Volstead act, and the liberties of the people in the matter of "Booze" may be enlarged bÿ the j terms of S. 7 by Lowe, which pass- ed the senate on Monday, amending 'S' the state prohibition laws to conform to the Volstead act under which it will be permissable to manufacture and sell light beer containing not to . exceed one-half of one per cent of COMMENCEMENT TO BE HELD THIS WEEK (Continued from Page One.) 1 N.
