SOLONS’ WORK DISAPPOINTING Far Short of Accomplishing Reforms Expected. BOUSES AT LOGGERHEADS Much of This Lack of Unanimity May Be Laid to the Controversy Over the Binder Twine Plant Bills —Seven Im portant Propositions Will Have to Go Over to the Special Session — Resolutions Introduced by Stack and Culberton. Madison, Wis., .Tune 8. —The Wis consin legislature has fallen far short of accomplishing the reforms and achievements it set out to do at least, if its expectations may be judged by the statements of its supposed leaders at the beginning of the session. The most contributory cause for this lack of accomplishment has been the school-boy jealousies, petty political <- T v. : : .* > SENATOR HAZELWOOD. and personal quarrels and estrange ments between the two houses. In * large number of cases the merits of measures were lost sight of in the de sire for retaliation and reprisal. Much of this lack of unanimity may be laid to the bitter controversy over the bills for the completion and main tenance of the binder twine plant at Waupun. Another source of frequent bickering was the inability of the as sembly and senate members of the joint senatorial investigating commit tee to agree on matters even so trivial as a ten-minute recess. In the assem bly the farmers and the non-farmers scrapped, spent some time in log-roll ing and in general placed their own and their constituents’ needs higher than those of the state. In the senate the so-called “progressives” were in the majority, and often a coalition of Democrats and “progressive” Repub licans sufficed to push things along. Issues of Most Interest. The two issues before the legisla ture which attracted the most interest were the senatorial investigation, and scraps over liquor legislation. The in vestigation’s net result, in addition to awakening the people to the abnormal conditions arising out of the extrava gant use of money in elections, was the introduction —but with small hope of passage—of a number of bills regu lating the manner of holding elections and the amounts of money that may be spent by candidates. In the mat ter of liquor legislation, two Anti-Sa loon league measures, county option and SI,OOO minimum license were killed; and the liquor interests also met decisive defeat in the slaughter ing of the Austin bill, giving a state commission power to revoke licenses and regulate saloons and taking such power away from city councils, by the senate. The passage of the bill allowing cities to install the commission form of government attracted little atten tion, although it is one of the most important measures passed by the leg islature. Work for Special Session. Not satisfied with killing the great er number of the important bills left the legislature at the last moment added still more to the burdens of the proposed special session next winter by sending over to that time two more important subjects, good roads and ed ucation. Thus there is laid out for the special session action on seven import ant propositions: Income tax, indus trial insurance, water power, guaran tee of bank deposits, education, good roads and election reforms as sug gested by the senatorial investigation. It will thus be seen that the spe cial session will be a far more import ant event than has been the session just closing. And there are those in plenty who predict that such special session will drag out a long as the present if there is to be adequate attention given the subjects to be con sidered. They are particularly certain of this if factional jealousies are to be revived and they do not see how they can be avoided with an election near at hand. The defeat of the state pris- on twine binding plant has left many ranklings that will be slow to heal. In the way of political leadership this legislature has not developed many men. It has brought out many new faces and has brought before the public with good records such men as Assemblymen Ingram, McConnell, Whittet, Bray, Cleary, Hambrecht and Hull among the Republicans and Kala her, Viebahn, Bichler ami Kindi in among the Democrats. In the senate the leadship largely was a legacy and few of the new senators have taken away any of the power of such men as Senators Sanborn, Marsh, Owen, Hud nall and Whitehead among the Repub licans and Husting. Randolph and Hazelwood among the Democrats. Of the new members possibly W. R- Gaylord, the Milwaukee Social Demo crat, has attracted the most attention. He has made a good record, as have the Social Democratic assemblymen, Weber, Brockhausen and Berner. Interesting Resolutions. Resolutions bearing possibilities of exceedingly interesting and important developments were introduced into the assembly yesterday afternoon, one by Assemblyman Stack of Superior, being suggestive of factional controversy and one by Assemblyman Culbertson of Chippewa county being aimed at Greek Letter secret societies at the univer sity. Each provides for an investiga tion. The Stack resolution refers to the charges preferred by former Deputy Insurance Commissioner Waite against Commissioner Beedle alleging unlaw ful charging and retaining of fees, re fers to other charges against other de partments in the capitol and provides that the speaker appoint five assembly men to investigate such charges and report to the special session next Jan uary. The Culbertson resolution describes the Greek Letter fraternities and soro rities as destructive of the democracy, which should exist in the university and calls upon the faculty to investi gate and make recommendations to the legislature with a view to either abolishing the secret societies or elim inating the evils. Assemblyman Cul bertson himself during his university days belonged to two fraternities but declares that he has become convinced that their presence today is most un wholesome. Wisconsin's Mistakes. Interesting in connection with the debate that has been waged this win ter over the question of the taxation of water powers is an article by John L. Mathews in the June Hampton’s magazine which has been much com mented upon in the legislature because the author points out Wisconsin’s mis takes in the past and its possibilities for the future. After explaining how the forests were depleted Mr. Mathews says: “The enriched lumbermen, caring nothing for the future but satisfied with the present gain, abandoned the burned over land to the state and deserted their fallen dams. The federal gov ernment spent $4,000,000 in an en deavor to keep the Wisconsin river navigable, and then gave up; and until the railway commission came into be ing the railroads, freed from competi tion, charged what they would for car l ying in the coal that was necessary to replace the wasted water power.” The article declares that Wisconsin should be rich, but it was not until Forester Griffith came to Wisconsin that the era of rejuvination was start ed. Three Million Acres of Trees. “Up there in the central highland, whence all his rivers rise, he has es tablished his stronghold, and there he has determined to gather a reserve of three million acres of trees,” says the article. It is then explained how some of the men of the state attempted “to grab all of the ponds in the state re serve for storage. As the result it be came necessary for the state to form the Wisconsin Valley Improvement company. The corporation, subject to the control of the forester, has the right of eminent domain over ponds and lands —lands suitable for water farms —in the source region and the right to use ponds in the forest re serve. “Now let us see what Griffith has done for Wisconsin with the aid and co-operation of the mill men,” contin ues the article. “There is so far de veloped 4,000,000,000 feet of storage and surveys are made for 20,000,000,000. The value and efficiency of every pow er on the (Wisconsin) river is already doubled. Instead of shutting down or buying coal in the lower water season last year, as the mills on other rivers did, those on the Wisconsin went ahead on their stored water. The lower river which has so long been un navigable is soon to become a deep and useful stream, reducing freight rates in a large territory.” Mathews predicts that with the im provements planned, the state will be saved many millions a year on its coal bills. He believes the valleys of all the principal rivers in Wisconsin will become the scene of great manufactur ing centers that, will rival anything in the olden days. Twesme Primary Bill Killed. As was expected the senate killed the Twesme bill which provided for a closed primary, that is, would compel voters to keep within their party camps at the primary election. As La Follette owes many of his victories in the past to the aid given him by the Democrats his followers in the senate were unwilling to enact a measure that would in this manner imperil his fu ture chances and so with the coalition they have been able to effect with the Democrats they killed the measure. In the effort to bring about final ad journment this week immense calen dars have been in vogue and long day •nd night sessions held. A. O. BARTON. The New Boarder. “What did you say your name was?** Inquires the landlady in a hoarse whis per. “Camp.” “l.adies and gentlemen, this is Mr. Grant.” She waves you to a vacant chair. The young lady on your right drops a half bow. The young gentleman to your left drops a pork chop. Thus, amid covert sneers, supercilious glances and general awkwardness, you take your place among an alien people. “A hash house introduction always reminds me of a minstrel show.” de clares the humorous boarder. “Be seated, gentlemen; know each other and be acquainted.” Whereat you must smile. “Chase the cow this way,” continues the humorous boarder in time honored reference to the milk pitcher, whereat you must guffaw. “You are always master of ceremo nies.” says a young lady boarder to the humorous one. “As for me, I’m too timid.” “Why are you timid?” “Oh, I’m so little!” “Sweet goods come in small pack ages.” “So does poison.” Fine old repartee! After dinner you ascend to your hall bedroom and won der if you will ever be at home in this company. But you know you will. Within a month you will be lending money to the humorous boarder and perhaps have a love affair started.— Puck. Not a Success. The manager of the subscription book department was telling of some of his experiences. “The funniest case I remember,” he said, “was that of an applicant for a job at book canvassing from whom I expected great things. He made a careful study of the litera ture we supplied him with and was very enthusiastic. Judge of my sur prise when the first morning he went out back he came and handed in his resignation. “ ‘But you should not be so easily discouraged,’ I told him. ‘Few make a success at the start, and you ac knowledge that you went into only two places.’ “ ‘Only two,’ he said lugubriously. ‘One was a real estate agent, who per suaded me to sign a contract for two lots in Fizzlehurst, and the other was a tailor, who sold me a suit of clothes I didn’t want.’ And, shaking his head mournfully, he mumbled 'Good day’ and went out.”—Lippincott’s. In the Hands of the Law. An impecunious young lawyer re cently received the following letter from a tailor to whom he was in debted: Dear Sir—Kindly advise me by return mail when I may expect a remittance from you in settlement of my account. Yours truly, J. SNIPPEM. The follower of Blackstone immedi ately replied: Dear Sir—l have your request for ad vice of a recent date and beg leave to say that, not having received any retain er from you, I cannot act in the premises. Upon receipt of your check for $250 I shall be very glad to look the matter up for you and to acquaint you with the results of my investigations. I am, sir, with great respect, your most obedient servant, BARCLAY B. COKE. —Success Magazine. Redundant Particulars. Cleveland people consider the name of their town sufficient as an address without the addition of Ohio, and one protesting against the use of the name of the state tells a story to illustrate the folly of redundant particulars. “It reminds me,” he said, "of the fussy Englishman who went up to St. Peter and said, ‘l’m from London.’ And then, for fear the saint might mix him up with somebody else, he added, ‘London, England, you know.’ That riled the good old gatekeeper. ‘From London, England, eh?’ he said. ‘Well, Mr. Man from London, England, you’re knocking at the wrong door. Your new address is Sheol, Brimstone coun ty, Dominion of Lucifer!’ ’’—Exchange. The Gnu In the Zoo. They’ve got a gnu in the zoo. It’s a new gnu. That is to say, no one ever knew it there before. When it arrived it had very little coat. Consequently it was in a state of gnudity; hence, this new ditty we are composing on the subject. But now it is no longer gnude. That new gnu knew some thing and grew anew coat for the cold weather. If some people knew what that new Nubian gnu knew, they would keep their hair on.—London Scraps. Importance of Vowels.

Whatever may be said of the modern man, he cannot be said to be lacking in modesty.
