BOTH SENT TO THE SENATE Lower Branch of Legislature Disposes of Two Initiative and Refer endum Bills. (Special Correspondence.) Bismarck, Feb. 24.—After having been killed and had the "clincher" applied to the act by which it was killed senate bill Xo. 76, providing for state aid for good roads, was revived and passed by the house. This action was taken in spite of the protests of those who declared it would throw the state treasury wide open to the good roads interests and it insures a new era of road building in North Da kota if it is favorably accepted by the people. This is the second good roads measure to have passed the hou^e within a few days, the first having provided for township road superin tendents., A A A Two initiative and referendum bills have been approved by the house. One was the bill passed at the last session, •which was introduced by Senator Bes sessen. The other was the bill intro duced this year by Lambert of Ward. Lambert, in talking on his bill, made a statement to the effect that in his belief all other bills offered were un constitutional and that his, without the recall, was the only one that would be acceptable to the people of the state. 4- Another force in the campaign for woman suffrage has been enlisted, the North Dakota Enforcement league, at its annual meeting in Bismarck, pass ing a resolution urging that the legis lature take action for the speedy ex tension of the right of voting to wo men. Enforcement league forces con tend that if the women are given a right to the ballot there will no longer be any fear of prohibition being re pealed in this state. Several organi zations, in addition to the Women Suffrage league of the state, are mak ing a fight for equal suffrage. Senator Ellingson's bill, establish ing a state bonding department under the direction of the commissioner of insurance, is before the house com mittee on insurance, where it is be ing resisted by representatives of the bonding companies, who have asked to have more time extended in con sideration of the measure. It is con sidered one of the most sweeping measures of the assembly. An investigation into the affairs of the Independent Harvester company, In course of organization, is proposed by a resolution introduced in the sen ate by Senator E. F. Gilbert of Cass county, which has been referred to a committee. The resolution provides that the secretary of state be asked to make such investigation as he can as to the responsibility of the Inde pendent Harvester company of Piano, 111., forthwith and to give publicity to the results of his investigation by pub lication and otherwise and to take Buch other actions in regard to said corporation as he deems meet in the premises. •5* 4* 4* The senate finally has disposed of the matter of confirming the board of control appointments by confirming the appointments of R. S. Lewis of Fargo and J. W. Jackson of Williston, but refused to confirm the appoint ment of A. D. Grant of Jamestown. The matter has been hanging fire since early in the session. 4* 4. 4- Senator Gibbens presented a com munication from a number of his con stituents asking that the legislature appoint a committee to investigate into the question whether the state could safely, legally and economically enter into the manufacture of de natured alcohol and if it was found that all this was possible to provide the means where the state might do the same. •J* •J* Representative Williams introduced and the house approved a concurrent resolution in the form of a proposed amendment to the constitution of the state, providing for the sale of all lands granted to the state under an act of congress and reserving to the state the coal deposits. 4* 4* 4* Governor Hanna has filed with the senate a set of resolutions drafted by Great Northern firemen and engineers, in session at St. Paul, protesting against the passage of the Owens bill, now in the house, as being injurious to a great number of firemen now em ployed on the roads in North Dakota. The resolutions were referred to the committee on railroads. 4* 4* The liveliest time the house has had this session attended considera tion of the licjuor inspection bill and the bitter remarks which accompanied the discussion were not confined to consideration of the bill alone, but we re uncomfortably personal. Repre sentative Coltom touched off the fire works by remarking that "he thought the majority of the members of the temperance committee were whisky people and he concluded by asserting that "it is a black spot on the state to have such a chairman as we have on the temperance committee." Chair man Hendrickson resented this at tack, but Coltom refused to retract. At the next day's session, however, he apologized for his remarks. 4* 4* 4* The house bill providing for sani tary hotels, including eight-foot bed sheets and other requirements, passed the senate after considerable opposi tion. Senator Jacobson objected to the part providing that plumbing be required in all hotels of certain size, on the ground that in the newer and western part it would be impossible to comply with the requirements. His motion to amend by cutting out this part was lost. He had another amend ment cutting out that part of the bill which requires that all hotels shall be inspected before they can open and that was carried. An amendment was also attached to the bill as it came from the house providing that where it calls for individual towels the hotel keeper may if he so desires substitute paper towels. 4* 4* 4* In spite of a flood of petitions that have been received from over the state asking that there be no change made in the mechanics' lien law of two years ago the prospects are that a new law will be framed this session. A bill recently passed the house and there are now before the senate com mittee on judiciary three bills, all of which are being considered by a sub committee and it is likely that a measure will finally be reported back from the committee which will pre scribe certain penalty for violation of what shall be included in the lien. 4. 4. 4. The "provision for woman suffrage is still in some doubt. The three bills recently passed by the senate have been referred to the house committee on4 ways and means, to whom has also been referred a house bill on the same subject, making four bills altogether. Mrs. Darrow of Fargo and Miss Ran kin, the national field secretary, who are at the capital in the interest of the movement, are receiving but little encouragement so far, as there are too many bills for consideration. 4» 4* 4* Inquiries have developed, so far as surface conditions are concerned, that none of the special pommittees ap pointed to investigate the various state offices have nearly completed their tasks and it is probable that on the fiftieth day they will ask for more time to complete examinations. 4* 4« 4* The anti-cigarette bill passed the senate by a vote of 31 to IS. There was little discussion prior to final pas sage. Senator Hanley took the oppor tunity to make a few remarks regard ing the feeling that had been engen dered the day the bill was first up and stated that it was the first time in his legislative experience that the sincerity of any of the members had been brought into question and that he was sure there were no motives but for the best of the people at large. He also called attention to the fact there was on the books of the state of North Dakota an anti-lobby ing law and he insinuated that that law was being broken every day and stated that steps should be taken for its enforcement. He thought that a great deal of the sentiment for the bill had come from outside sources and went so far as to state that it was his opinion that other members of the senate had been openly insult ed for the stand they took on the bill when it was up for consideration at a previous day. 4* 4* 4* Senator Carter offered a concurrent resolution which petitions the secre tary of war to make provision and al lot funds for the survey of the Red river from Breckenridge to the Cana dian border and to devise means of providing the river with a system of locks and dams to encourage naviga tion. The committee THE COURIER-DEM OCR AT THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1913. 011 Indian affairs reported for adoption a concurrent resolution, introduced by Senator Hughes, which provides for the sale of 300,000 acres of Indian lands in the state for the purpose of establish ing hospitals at the two schools in this state. 4- 4- The bill providing that legislative clerical work be done by contract passed the senate by an overwhelming vote. Senator Hook way voiced the sentiment of the opposition when he said he was opposed to the measure because he believed the assembly would not be able to secure as effi cient help as under the present sys tem and besides it would give out siders a chance to come in and do the work, while under the present system the money went to taxpayers and was scattered over the state. 4* 4* 4* The house bill making the maximum salary of the superintendent of the asylum for the insane at Jamestown $4,000 instead of $2,500 passed the house, as did the bill providing for preventure of procreations of insane and habitual criminals. 4- 4* 4* A committee will probably be ap pointed in the house to pass on bills that are to be introduced from this time on, the idea being not to hinder the progress of work by having to spend time in considering the bills not liable to pass, or those that will bo of no practical benefit aft«r they have passed. Where Did the Fio-wers Come In? By ELSIE B. MATTESON l.iilt iiiUNiouii. aged thirty, lind bur ied liis father, then liis mother. He and his sister had kept up the family home till the sister died nud Bob found himself alone, lie was at a loss what to do. lie had been born in the house and had never lived anywhere else, the thought of leaving it and going to hotel, a boarding house or bacliclor apartments was repulsive to him. He determined to stay where he was. lie stood the loneliness of living in" a house all by himself for several months, then gave it up. lie pre ferred to take ids meals elsewhere so that it seemed useless to keep a serv ant. The consequence was that every thing grew dingy. He could not see through the window panes since they were covered with dirt: he considered it useless to make his bed since there was no one to see it except himself, and he didn't care. Dust and cobwebs began to appear. He wrote on a card. This bouse to let. Inquire within 8 to 9 a. m.. 5 to p. m.." and tacked it on the front door. Returning from business at 5 o'clock, he sat down In his accustomed seat by the window, opened his evening paper, sighed and listlessly read the news. About half past 5 there came a ring of the door bell. Garwood slowly rose from his chair and answered the sum mons. There stood a lady between twenty-five and thirty with a little girl. On her face was a melancholy look. The child might have been four yenrs old and was the only one of the three who was not somber. "I see this house is to let," said the lady. "May I look at it?" "Certainly! Come in." Garwood showed her through the rooms, told her what rent he expected to get and that possession could be given at any time. "I'm afraid," she said, "I'd better not take it I should have to make the rent by letting rooms, and if I couldn't find roomers I should be in trouble. I'm not much of a business woman. I wasn't brought up to it My husband died only a year after we were mar ried and left me some money, but I didn't know how to take care of it, and it is all gone. I haven't $50 left" "I might take a room with you my self," said Bob. "Would you?" said the widow, with a faint show of hope. "If I were to keep one room at. say, $25 a month that would leave the rent out but $25." The lady caught at this, and to help the matter out Garwood told her she could see what she could do in renting the other rooms, and he would not let the house till he heard from her. She departed quite comforted, and as soon as she was out of sight he went out and took down the notice. Garwood waited a week for word from the widow, when he received a note from her stating that she had been able to find but one person who would agree to take a room with her. so she feared she would have to give up the plan of taking the house. Gar wood called to see her and said he thought he would like to keep two ad joining rooms, for which he would pay $35 a month, leaving the rental but $15. The widow seemed encouraged and said that if he could give her more time she thought she could make ar rangements that would warrant her taking the house. Garwood told her not to hurry. Not hearing from her for some time, he called on her to learn what prog ress she was making. She apologized for keeping him waiting, explaining the delay by saying that two different per sons whom she hoped to secure as roomers had been undecided. How ever presuming from his having called that he was getting impatient she would not keep Uim waiting any longer, but give up the idea of taking his house. He assured her that he was not impatient and begged her to proceed in her efforts. The next day he mailed her a proposition to keep the rooms and a bath, for which he would pay $50 a month, and this would leave her no rent to pay. To this the lady replied, acknowledg ing the liberality of his terms, but un less other roomers were in the house with them she would not like to face the opinion of the world by living alone in the same house with a man. Garwood had proceeded as far as he could in the matter and deemed the lady right in the position she had tak en. Indeed, he felt it incumbent upon him to call and apologize for having made a proposition that looked, to say the least, out of place. So he went to see the lady again and explained that he had supposed she would bring some relative or other person who would be glad of a home without paying room rent The widow told him that she was alone in the world and very lonely. To this Garwood sympathetically re plied that he was in the same position. He left assuring her that he would not give up the plan he would think it over and see if he could not find some way out of the matter. The only way out of the matter was to rent his house to the widow with out rent and pay all the bills. This would not do at all without marriage, so he mailed her a proposal, which was accepted. When her acceptance had been mail ed the widow gathered up a number of withered flowers that had been coming from time to time during the negotia tions and burned tbem. While He Waited.
