What Our Represen t atives Are Doing. a (raLeader News Bureau.) tl Baton Rouge, Sept. 2G,-With a exception of the 'reVenUe acts, a cover the most important lature needed to be enacted this special session, ate now wore the legislature. SVys and Means coummittee will enaot the present ssessiuent ione, 'he reason for this is ous, First it would take six t ka to re.write an entire new r enue bill, that would extend v eession perhaps to the full 75 r . Second if the act was re uriten to conform to the require ý,nts of the new constitution, it r aould perhaps be necessary to in- I .se the state tax levy from t .4to 5 1-2 mills, in order to the extra million needed for te government and to make up the more than fifty million dol. iinexemptions granted by the I titutional convention. With -people crying for relief from burdensome taxes this legis re doesn't care to face political ' ilation by increasing taxes. Anew license tax bill, catching manufactures in the state, ex saw mills, will be passed, bill will add 250,000 to the 'e revenue. 'among the important bills pass. by the house of represeuta eeduring the last week were Smith bond bill, which cures larities in existing bond is aud limits the life of certain fues, such as roads and t to the life of improve. ~, Shattuck bill authoriz s the payment of six per cent ,n muni pal a.nd parohial c::rti-I l'hT ficat's of indt:lidrie ; Maýyes bli. hill creating a sta;:- iuilding c oºtracts i li 1 commission of thiiree memberto to the recommeind, at the neXt reºular ma session, chang',s in the tuild in/ ii 1 code and the Greater Agicultur-. , al and Mechanical coilege bill wit creating a board of governors for pai the greater university, ore The only bill passed by the son.

This bill has been sign. the ed by the governor and is now a itu law. b" The House however made some the It the s history other than by passing tas x bills. It killed the Burgress bill, dol W repealing the cattle dip law, by a lee d vote of 48-41. Advocates of the jel '5 repeal of the "tick" bill secured hid a favorable report from the House agricultural committee on their it measure, but when they tried to oil 1- rush it through to third reading 5 they met a \\aterloo. To, make lci to sure that the bill was beyond re*- tiv )r urretion in this section the evil Lp "clincher" was put on. The eu >1. House defeated also the Conner fur ie bill fixing the minimum capital ha ;h stock of State banks at S253,000. m The billif passed would have pre- ,f s- vented many small towns in the at state from securing a banking in s. stitutioi , capitalized at $10,OU 0 or i,. g l15o,000. pf K- A list of important bills intro- n d. duced during the last week in- wl he cludes: The Lawrason bill per- th mitting police juries to levy taxes at ýs, to pay debts and meet obligations he a. contracted prior to the adoption cc re of the new constitution, which es limited the parish tax levy to 25 te . wills.
