Legislators Give Committees
Chance to Catch Up.
Large Number of Measures Are Dis
posed of, a Majority of Them
Being Killed.
Bismarck—(Special)—After having
run at high pressure for twenty-two
das's, without recess with exception
of one day for the house following the
inaugural ball, the good resolutions
of New Year's to stay on the job and
attend strictly to business fell by the
wayside and' the legislature adjourned
for a week of rest. Perhaps there was
some reason in the plea that the mem
bers would have a clearer view of leg
islation by getting home and talking
the matter over with their constitu
ents also in the claim that this strict
and close attention to legislation may
have narrowed their viewpoint. But
the fact is that a good many members
were anxious to get home and look
after personal affairs for a week and
that a great deal of committee work
must be done before much real prog
ress can be made in passing laws, par
ticularly appropriation measures, and
both bodies must mark time till the
committees can catch up.
The Casualties—Up till adjourn
ment the house had introduced 227
measures and the senate 165, these
aside from some concurrent resolu
tions. The house killed fifty-six of its
own bills and had two killed in the
senate it passed forty-live of its own
and seven of the senate's. The senate
killed thirty-five of its own bills and
had one killed in the house it passed
thirty-five of its own and five originat
ing in the house. Thus there remain
122 house bills and 109 senate bills
yet in the hands of the committees.
If the new rule holds Feb. 9 is the last
day that bills can be introduced. There
will, therefore, be but seven days
when the present recess is ended in
which new measures can be introduc
ed. It is easy to see that it is unlikely
that a large number of bills can be in
troduced in that time, and the possi
bility of a last minute rush and scram
ble is diminished. The total results
of the first twenty-two days is seen
in the passage of twelve new laws,
two of which have already been signed
by the governor, one of which reduces
the legal rate of interest from 7 to 6
per cent and the other making it a
felony for a bank officer to make a
false statement or entry with regard
to the affairs of the bank.
Amond the Dead—Of the house bills
which have been killed may be found
some of general interest. No. 38
would provide for personal bonds for
county treasurers, instead of surety,
under certain conditions—a whack at
the surety companies and their high
premium rate. No. 44 would have
taken away the $500 a year expense
money from the judges of the supreme
court this matter is being taken
care of by senate bill 142. No. 66
threatened to raise a religious ques
tion by permitting the inspection of
convents, monasteries and religious
schools and was therefore shelved.
No. 74 would compel pool halls to
I close at midnight, but when some en
terprising member tacked on an
amendment requiring public dances
to cease at the same hour nothing
could save its life. No. 82 would

Finances—As demands for 'money
come in upon the legislature the
work of the special committee, whose
duty it is to find where and how
much cuts can be made in expendi
tures, grows. It is determined that
about $157,000 is to be cut from the
capitol clerk hire and maintenance
and all departments are to be reduced
pro rata. It is understood that state
institutions will also suffer propor
tionate trimming and that every
branch of Hie government will be put
cn shorter rations than before. Yet
some legislators ^seem blandly uncon
scious of the conditions and we have

Rural Credits—A proposed constitu
tional amendment that Is attracting
wide attention among the farmers is
that introduced by Senator Bond ol'
Williston. Congressman Norton of
this state has attempted to have the
federal government take action along
these lines and his example has been
followed by United States Senators
Gronna and McCumber, each of whom
have followed Mr. Norton's example
and introduced measures. Mr. Bond's
plan promises speedier and prompter
relief, for it involves the use of ?100,
000 of state money as a guarantee for
the issuance of state bonds, money
from the sale of which is to be loaned
upon farm lands in the state, through
the state banking board. The loans
can be ma3e payable on tbe plan of
building loan association payments
and £he interest would amount to 4.S
per cent. There is money now on
hand in special and sinking funds,
which is deposited in banks that pay
the state 3 per cent per annum for it,
and in turn lend it to tanners at
to 12 per cent. Why should not the
state lend it direct? it now lends
money on farm lands through the
o]ine an(
such l^e
One redeeming feature is that pro
posed by L. Li. Twichell, who would
rpneal all special mill tax appropria
tion laws and have the maintenance
of the state's educational institu
tions come, as does that of the oth
ers, from a direct appropriation of a
specific amount.

Inspection is no: needed, and thf
only reason for inspection is that it
provides salaries for the inspectors
Game Wardens—House bill No. 194
would abolish g.niie wardens and dep
uties nnd the e-.:x-nse and require th«
sheriffs and deputies of each countj
to perform tlie.e duties. Economj
Mothers' Pensions—Mouse bill 11!
would give mothers with children
from $5 to $1" :i month. It woulc
save many an innocent child from be

soeiate with yonng criminals, because
the* state lias nowhere else to send
it. But the state cannot afford it just
now It needs an exhibit at the San
Kranc",i('o exposition.
Normal at Dickinson—Another stat«
normal school. The concurrent resolu
tion has passed both houses and will,
therefore, be submitted to the people
in 1916. Probably the voters will feel
richer than the legislators do now.
State Bonding Department—Despite
the tact thai :iie supreme court held
the 1913 law. which provided for the
bonding of state and connty officials
by iiseir through a surety
bonding department, to be unconsti
tutioiu.. .t.- In:: 7S would provide

citizens of .lamestown and as these
charges were specific and sworn tc
by responsible citizens the committee
felt ii necessary that an investigation
be made and so recommended. As a
result committee has been appoint
ed to make full investigation. The
charges include the claim that the
board took $100,000 appropriated foi

no hospital that it built a new hos
