Telephone No. 15 J.H.StlITHVICK IS GIVEN TOO APPOINTMENTS LOCAL CONGRESSMAN IS ON IN DUSTRIAL ARTS AND PEN SIONS COMMITTEE, BUT IS NOT SATISFIED. . BY GEORGE H. MANNING. Washington. D. C, May 29- Con gressman J. H. Smithwick, of Pensa cola, has been placed on the commit tee on Industrial arts and expositions and the pensions committee. These two committees while not of the highest Importance, are neverthe less rather Important and desirable. Most members, too, only get one com mittee assignment. The fact that nnm--erous industrial and ar( exhibitions are planned by the government makes this committee of more than the usual importance. These committee assignments are not by any meansj however, what Mr. Smithwick would have had if he had been able to take his choice. Congressman Smithwick made his bow In congress at a particularly un fortunate time for obtaining- desirable committee places. In the last con gress the democrats had a majority membership of thirteen on all the committees. Thfs Is being reduced to a minority membership of eight In this congress. Consequently flvo members have to be taken ofJLall the committees, and these fivr on account of the seniority rule have the call for committee places over newly elected members This forces .the new members to take what is left, and there is very, little remaining after the old members have had their choice. s-Kret.J to c complete draft of an air- con ference which will be submitted, subject to small amendments.

Two road bills by Senator Russell, were passed by the sen ate one of which clarifies the present law as to the giving of state aid by the road' department' to - special road end bridge districts, while the other validates all contracts now existing for state aid to special road and bridge districts, Senator MacWilliams stated that the law at pres ent provides for aid. to counties but laaks any provision as to the state money for highways in special road and bridge dis tricts. The measures are curative In their purpose, are endorsed by the state road department and were prepared at the suggestion of an eminent bond at torney of New York city who passes on most of the county, district and munici pal bond issues of Florida and other states. Another Road Act. The senate also passed the Igou bill amending the present automobile tax law so as to exempt from license the oars of tourists who have paid a tax for the year in another state, provided such other state grants the same privilege to Florl dians sojourning within their borders during certain months of the year. Sen ator Carlton favored the bill, declaring the to'urist crop the most valuable Flori da has, and it was not fair for a man wno has paid a license tax on his car In another state to have to pay It again here for two or three "months. When Sen ator Singletary declared that ne had to buy a new license for his car when he went to other states, the reciprocity fea ture of the Igou bill was pointed out. A bill by Senator Carlton to . provide for the cancellation and satisfaction of mortgage Hens. judgments and decrees, and providing a penalty for failure to make such cancellation and satisfaction, was also passed by the senate today on third reading, as was a measure by Senator King to providel a uniform meth od : of municipal acounting and for exl amination into financial operation of mu nicipalltes, provding penalties for viola tion and repealing Chapter 6817 laws of Florida, approved June 5, 1916, on the same subject. If Senator Hughlett and Representative Watson cannot agree on the proposed amendments to the bill amending the act of 1917 creating the Southern Drainage district. Senator MacWilliams will intro duce a bill to repeal the act and abolish the district, which measure Tie already has prepared and has on his desk re3dy for introduction "as soon as It Is deter mined definitely that Dade county's sen ator and representative are unable to agree. Hope Is still held out however, that some amicable arrangement may be made of the dlferences of opinion in this matter and the bill finally passed. The measure is now on the senate calen dar, having passed the house. The sim ilar measure relating to the Napoleon B. Broward "Drainage district has passed both house and all the amendments, with the exception Of a few minor ones. Agreed upon and adopted STORE ROBBER WAS LOCKED IN BUILDING More of Stolen Goods of A.

ROEBUCK GASOLINE BILL MAKES SOME PROGRESS IN HOUSE COURT ORDER IS FAVORABLE TO CITY PENSACOLA An order directing that the city re cover the amount of $10,000 with in terest bringing the aggregate to $10, 76.54 from the United States Fidelity & Guaranty company was passed, in the United States district court. Judge Wm. B. Shepard. yesterday, and un less appeal is taken from the decision the depleted city treasury will soon be replenished in that amount. The suit against the bonding com pany has been pending in the courts for sometime, and was occasioned by the failure of the Memphis & Pensa cola Railroad ocmpany to live up to its agreement in constructing a road into this city. . B YHERBERT FELKEL. Tallahassee, May 29, Afte ran un successful effort to indefinitely post pone it following the adoption of all the committee amendments, the Roe buck' house bill providing for full measure and proper standard in the sale of gasoline, went to the senate committee on engrossed bills havm? been read a second time. One amend ment reduces the, number of Inspectors from four to three and provides that one shall reside in Pensacola, one in Jacksonville and the third in Tampa. The bill will. become "effective ninety days after its approval. The amend ments were recommended by senate judiciary B committee. The motion to indefinitely postpone the measure was made by Senator Wilsoq, who did not want to create any more jobs and thus increase the number of in spectors living off the-public. Sena tor Carlton, favored the bill, declaring that, if the state was being Imposed upon by 5 anybody it was the dealers in gasoline. Senator Singletary said the bill provided . for an analysis to be made at any time a customer was doubt ful of "the-purity -of the gas sold. If Florida continued without such a law it would be a dumping ground for poor gasoline which would be refused by other states having such statutes, he declared. Senator Cartlon said the bill should not be classed with those creating new state jobs because the tax would take care of the in -spectors' salaries and the department would thus carry its own weight. But Senator Wilson replied that the pur ple would eventually have it to pay because the tax would be added to the cost of the gasoline. He thought Florida already had enough traveling inspectors. - OPEN FOR BUSINESS. Pensacola photo Studio all kind? photographic work.
