VOJL. I. . HAYTI, MISSOURI, THUBSDAY, APRIL 29, 1909. NO. 27. "GUN TOTING." STOCK LAW ELECTION. - "Gun toting" will be a dangerous pastime, either for the law-abiding citizen or the criminal in the future. The house has passed Senator Wil son's bill making the carrying of a concealed deadly weapon a felony, punishable by imprisonment in the Penitentiary. The measure now needB ynly the signature of the Governor to become a law. ThoHouso also passed Senator Wilson's companion bill to tlie guntotlng measure. It prohibits the display of weapons in show win dows, but was amended so as not to include in this restriction the display of rovolvors or guns in show cases in side of stores. The amendment was udopted at the suggestion of the whole sale hardware dealers of St. Louis, Kansas City and St. Joseph. As passed by the House and Senate the two bills are expected to reduce homi cides to the minimum. Both measures were generally supported and are ad mitted to be two of the best acts ap proved by Ihe Legislature this session. Senator Wilson has been laboring for more than ten years to place such laws on the statute books. Mr. Haw kins, of Dunklin County, and Mr. Hull, of Platte County, both spoke in favor of the Wilson bills in theHousetoday. Mr. Hawkins said that his experience as a Prosecuting Attorney caused him to appreciate the evil of carrying con cealed weapons. The smallest penalty under the Wilson bill is a line of $100. The maximum is two years in the Peni tentiary. Only sworn oilers of the law are exempted by the provisions of the act. Boyers Famous Show. The J. II.
