APPROPRIATIONS
Made by Farty-First Legislature,
Whose Sessions Have
Come to Close.
MANY MEASURES DIE
Good Roads Bill Biggest Work Accom-
plishedState Tax Levy Fixed at
3.5 Mills for 1920 and Three
Mills for 1921.
St. Paul.The forty-first session of
the Minnesota Legislature has finished
its labors and adjourned sine die.
Many important bills died through
lack of attention during the closing
hours. This was the fate of the War
ner-Hompe convention bill, amended
over into the Rockne bill by the Sen
ate. The conference committee threw
up its hands and asked to be dis
charged. It found it impossible to
reach an agreement.
The bills providing for relief for
Minnesota soldiers .and sailors met
a no less fortunate fate. The $60
bonus bill passed by the House died
in the Senate finance committee. An
attempt was made to take it out of
committee and pass it, but it met
with no success. The Sullivan-Wold
soldier-sailor loan bill also met its
end in the same committee, as did the
Nolan-Christianson bill providing for
state budget commission.
The Senate took action on the plan
for a state war memorial by passing
a resolution calling for the appoint
ment of an interim commission com
posed of members of the legislature
to study the question and report to
the 1921 legislature.
Increased Costs Cared For.
Both houses passed the emergency
bill taking care of the increased cost
of maintenance in state departments,
and providing $35,000 for the new de
partment of agriculture for the next
two years. The increases were all in
cluded in making up the total of the
state's appropriations for the com
ing two years, so the tax levy is not
increased. Some of the larger in
creases are $28,000 for the surveyor
general of logs and lumber $23,400
for the dairy and food department,
$23,380 for the state labor department
$111,000 for oil inspection, and $6,000
for the attorney general, $4,300 for
the public examiner, and $18,700 for
hotel inspection, and $2,800 for the ad
jutant-general. The other amounts
asked for are small.
Auto Insurance Bill Passes.
The Solem House bill providing for
the organization of mutual automobile
insurance companies was passed with
out objection by the Senate, as was
the Siegel bill prohibiting automatic
elevators in buildings occupied by two
or more tenants.
Three bills from the state auditor's
office relating to timber permits were
passed. One by Jacobson, regulating
the issuance of permits, another by
Darby, allowing the timber board to
determine the number of sections of
land that may be covered by a permit,
and a third by Lagerson, regulating
the extension of permits. All were
House bills.
Bulk Sale Bill Fails.
The Senate refused to suspend the
rules and killed the "bulk sales bill"
to prevent the sale of merchandise in
bulk to defraud creditors. Every ses
sion of the Senate for years has wound
up with an attempt to pass this bill,
which has always failed. Last night,
however, the bulk sales bill did not
end the session. Other senators had
bills they wanted passed.
Game and Fish Bill Passes.
The House voted 46 to 39 to accept
the. conference report on the game and
fish bill, according to the Senate
amendments, and repassed the bill, 90
to 29.
Soldiers' Bonus Bill Fails.
Senator James Handlan of St. Paul
tired to bring up the bill already
passed by the House appropriating
$4,500,000 for soldiers' bonuses, but the
Senate would have none of it. Sena
tor James Carley said that the sol
diers did not want a bonus of that
kind. Other senators also protested.
The bill was In the hands of the Sen
ate committee on finance, along with
the Sullivan-Wold bill appropriating
$10,000,000 for a revolving fund to aid
soldiers In need and to make loans
to others who may want to buy homes
or farms or train themselves for
business.
$85,000 for Forestry Work.
Hurried eleventh hour conferences
over the failure to rush through the
bill abolishing the forestry board and
confering its powers and duties on
the state timber board, resulted in a
decision to drop the plan.
But the bill carried the only appro
priation so far made for fire protec
tion work, so it became necessary for
the conference committee represent-
Total Yanks Killed, 75444.
Washington, April 25.Revised cas
ualty totals announced by the War
department placed the total of dead
in the army and marine corps at 75,344
of which 33,887 were killed in action.
Prisoners reported were 4,791. Of
prisoners previously held by the cen
tral powers the records show 281 died
during Internment and 118 of doubt
ful status. The grand total of wound
ed in the list is 201.230. of whom it
has been estimated more than 85 per
cant returned to duty.

ing the Senate Finance and the House
appropriations committees to get busy.
An appropriation of $85,000 a year for
the next biennium was decided upon,
$10,000 more than proposed in the bill
turned down by the House, but still
about a quarter of a million dollars
less than the forestry department
asked for. This $85,000 appropriation
for the forestry department was in
cluded in one of the bills introduced
and passed late last night.
Convention Measure Dies.
If any last ray of hope remained
that a party convention bill or a bill
amending the primary law would be
enacted at this session of the Legis
lature, it was dispelled when, after a
final meeting, the House and Senate
conference committee on the amend
ments to the Warner-Hompe bill, the
committee reported that it was abso
lutely unable to agree, and asked for
a discharge, which was granted.
House members refused to accept
the Rockne bill, which the Senate had
adopted as an amendment to the War
ner-Hompe bill, and the Senate con
ferees would have nothing but the
Rockne bill. Thus all hope of
nominating candidates for office by
the convention system next year was
dissipated.
Appropriation Measures.
Appropriations totaling $31,774,949
were voted during the session. For
the next two fiscal years, respectively,
funds of $15,215,298 and $13,587,992 are
made available, compared with $2,-
971,659 for the current year.
Nearly double the amount of money
remains to be raised by taxation in
the next two years over the last two
as a result of Increased cost of state
government. Minnesota property own
ers will have $11,451,036 of taxes to
pay during the next two years, to
ward making up the appropriations
total. Taxes for state purposes will
be levied at a 3.5 mill rate for 1920
and a 3 mill rate for 1921, compared
with respective 2.5 and 1 mill rates
for 1918 and 1919.
Depend on Governor's Signing.
The foregoing figures, compiled in
the office of State Auditor J. A. O.
Preus by M. J. Desmond, chief of ac
counting, are contingent upon approv
al by Governor Burnquist of appropria
tion measures to be signed by him.
Appropriations totaling $2,971,652
are made available at once and of
$15,215,298 and $13,587,992 for 1920 and
l&jil. Mr. Desmond figured that $6,-
125,000 must be raised by taxation in
1920 and $5,260,000 In 1921 and com
puted the rates according.
Funds to be raised by taxation are
the amounts left after deductions are
made of $20,000,000 for estimated rev
enue from various sources and $323,-
913 taken from current year appro
priations following enactment of a
new law fixing June 30 instead of July
31 as the ending date of the state
fiscal year.
A detailed statement of apropria
tions for state purposes is.to be is
sued after the governor has signed
or vetoed appropriation measures
awaiting his signature.
Negro Guard Bill Slips Through.
The House bill providing for a Ne
gro battalion in the Minnesota Na
tional Guard slipped through the Sen
ate before the members knew what
they were voting on. Senator Devoid
finally woke up and began to voice a
Will Educate Russians.
Thief River Falls. Minn., April 25.
Lieutenant L. R. Hiatt for some time
past agricultural instructor in the lo
cal high school, stated that he with
others will go to Russia for the Y. M.
C. A. to assist in the education of
Russian peasants. Mr. Hiatt intends
to leave some time in June and will
report at either the Seattle or Van
couver headquarters. His wife will
remain in this country with her par
ents. Mr. Hiatt expects to be gone
two years.
vigorous protest, but he was called to
order by Lieutenant Governor Thomas
Frankson. Senator Putnam also said
that he and other members did not re
alize what they were voting on, but the
roll call was finished and the vote was
allowed to stand.
Fight on Drainage Act.
Just as the telephone tax bill prov
ed the center of interest in the Senate
at the closing session, so the drainage
bill furnished the fireworks in the
House. A fierce fight developed when
O. C. Neuman attempted to repass the
drainage bill as amended by the Sen
ate. Theodore Christianson was suc
cessful in having tacked onto the
measure an amendment requiring that
the drainage engineer be a graduate of
a recognized college. The Senate re
jected this amendment and was sus
tained in its refusal by a conference
committee. After some delay the
House repassed the bill minus the
amendment.
Go Through In a Hurry.
Bills were called from the calendar
and general orders at will as the roll
was called during the closing after
noon session of the Senate, and more
than thirty were passed during the
afternoon. Among them was the Ben
dixen and Dorweiler bill requiring the
Railroad and Warehouse commission
to investigate and report on the value
of dockage to grain and report to the
next Legislature, a measure in which
th* grain growers are much interested.
They want millers to pay for the dock
age which is salable, such as chicken
and sheep feed.
Another farmers' bill passed was
the Bendixen measure to put the li
cense fees received from terminal
warehouses in the grain inspection
fund.
So were the Nelson bill to tax ves
sels operating in international wa
ters the McLaughlin House bill to
provide for the establishment and
maintenance of county free libraries
the House tax committee bill for the
taxation of freight line companies
the Kingsley bill separating Minne
apolis city and general elections, and
the Parker bill to punish desecration
of the flag.
The Moen bill transferring oil in
spection to the dairy and food de
partment, and providing for inspec
tion at the selling point, and requir
ing retail dealers to post a list of the
oils they sell and their quality, was
passed without a struggle, though a
hard fight on it was expected.
Other Bills Passed.
The Senate passed the Calahan bill
authorizing the Minneapolis city coun
cil to spend $50,000 to investigate the
feasibility of making a park of Nicol
let island, the Putnam House bill au
thorizing Fergus Falls to build an
armory, the Benson Senate bill to re
imburse school districts placing voca
tional training departments in high
schools and the House bill codifying
the state printing laws, the House sal
vage corps bill, providing for two ships
and increasing the insurance tax to
pay the extra men, the Coleman bill per
mitting state employes to draw pay on
more than one voucher, the Cliff bill
standardizing the requirements and
inspection of canneries, the House bill
authorizing armory boards to sell ar
mory sites, and providing for the up
keep of armories.
THE TOMAHAWK. WHITE EARTH, MINN.
Agricultural Bill Adopted.
Until the last three days of the
session it looked as though the bill
providing for the establishment of a
department of agriculture would go by
the board. An agreement was reached
between the House and the Senate,
however, and the measure was finally
passed. It was the House which first
passed the bill, originally introduced
in the House by Representative Elias
Nordgren and in the Senate by Sena
tor Gandrud. The bill provided for
the appointment of a commisisoner of
agriculture by the governor. It gave
that officer powers of investigation
into marketing condition and charged
him with the duties of co-operating
with both producer and consumer.
One of its main features was the
provision for a soil survey of the
state.
When the Nordgren bill went over
to the Senate that body substituted
a lengthy measure prepared by Sena
tor Cliff of Ortonville. Hurried con
ferences were held. The House bill
was finally amended to include some
of the enforcement provisions of the
Cliff bill, and It was passed in that
form. The House accepted the amend
ment.
A bill relating to co-operative organ
izations was also passed by both
houses as a companion bill to the de
partment of agriculture measure.
Several other bills desired by the
agricultural interests of the state fell
by the wayside. The Legislature did
pass the bill prohibiting the use of but
ter substitutes in state institutions,
but it was vetoed by the Governor.
Tax Bill Passed.
Both houses passed the tax levy bill
for the next two years. The levy is
3.5 mills for 1920 and .3 mills for 1921.
The tax must raise $6,125,000 for the
year ending June 30, 1920, and $6,250,-
000 for the year ending June 30, 1921.
Increase in the assessed valuation of
the state for 1921 will raise the larger
sum of money with the lower tax
rate.
Storks' Return Is Peace Omen.
Strasbourg, April 25.Storks, which
ceased their annual visits to Strass
bourg in 1914. have returned to the
old nests on a building on the Place
de Brogile. Several of the birds now
occupy the nests. Their unexpected
return in the present circumstances is
commented upon by the native popula
tion, who have always held that the
storks brought good luck. The Bank
of France recently has established its
offices in the building with the storks'
nests.

HOW TO AVOID
BACKACHE AHD
NERVOUSNESS
Told by Mrs. Lynch From
Own Experience.
Providence, R. I."I was all ras
down in health, was nervous, had head
aches, my back
ached all the tuna.
I was tired and had
no ambition for any
thing. I had taken
a number of medi
cines which did mo
no good. One day
I read about Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound and
what it had done for
women, so I tried
it. My nervousness
and backache and
headaches disappeared. I gained in
weight and feel fine, so I can honestly
recommend Lydia E. Pinkham's Vege
table Compound to any woman who is)
suffering as I was.'' Mrs. ADELINE B.
LYNCH, 100 Plaia St, Providence, R.
Backache and nervousness are symp
toms or nature's warnings, which in
dicate a functional disturbance or as
unhealthy condition which often devel
ops into a more serious ailment
Women in this condition should net
continue to drag along without help, bat

over there," said the landlord of tho
Petunia tavern, "are members of our
street-corner board of strategy. They
know how to carry on war, make
pence, cure rheumatism, save tho
country from the dogs, and transform
the hnmnn race into angels. But they
can't persuade their wives that they
the despondent gents just mentioned1
are afflicted with ketches In their
becks, stitches In their sides, and otaV
er symptoms that make It dangerous,
not to soy deadly, for them to spado
up the gardens nnd assist in the spring
house-cleaning."KnnRns City Star.

Had Lost Twenty-Fife Peoida
From Kidney TrooMe. Don't
Restored His Health.
J. B. Ragles*, carpenter. 210 W. SOth
St., Chicago, III., says: "My back gave
out completely and I bed to quit work,
I could hardly endure the pain in my
back and nights I tossed and turned,
unable to sleep. Often in the
ing my back was as
rtiff an a board, so that
I couldn't stoop to
dress myself. When I
did manage to bead
over, everything before
me turned black. My
head seemed to be
whirling and some
times I was so dissy I
had to grasp something
to keep from falling.
The kidney secretions
were irregular in poo
MR*, getting me op ot
night and they burned cruelly. I lost
my appetite, was weak sad listless and
went down twentv-ive pounds in
weight. After I hod given up hope,
I was persuaded to use Doan'g Kid
ney Pills and they cured me. Soon
after, 1 passed an examination for life
insurance and I'm glad to say my cure
has lasted."
