The Medical Bill Passed—A j Large Amount of Business done in both Houses The hill by Mitchell relative to the soldiers home. An amend ment was offered making tire com mander of Phil Sheridan post, one of the board of trustees, but it did | not receive a second. Another amendment was offered cutting the salary of the superin tendent down to $500 per year. Carter said he-should oppose the amendment as the salary bad al ready been cut down $400. No man of any ability would accept the position at that salary. Randolph thought that if the board of trustees should advertise for a man at that salary they would have so many applicants that they would not know what to do with them. The amendment was lost. Perkins offered an amendment requiring the superintendent to be a practicing physician. Carter said no competent physi cian could be obtained at that sal ary, and if this amendment carried the old and decript veterans would not receive the care and attention they deserved.

McCarty said there was need of a resident physician. He was in favjpr of raising the salary to $1200 or 71500 per year. Waters spoke in the same vein and opposed the amendment unless the salary should he raised. Carter said no physician could cofrfmand the old solders as one who had marched with them through the campaign of the war. He declared this was simply a doc tors scheme. Morgan was ir favor of raising the salary and requiring a resident, physician, hut if there was any scheme on foot he desired to know it before voting.
