PROCEEDINGS OF THE EXTRA SESSION OF THE LEGISLATURE A resolution of sympathy for the Boers lius passed the Senate. A great many petitlous. both for and against the Buckliu bill, are pre seutetl every day. Senator Ammons* bill compelling rail roads to fence their right of way has passed the Senate. Mr. Montgomery lias introduced a bill for submitting a constitutional amendment to legalize a state board of assessors. By a vote of thirty-four to twenty one the House Tuesday agreed to the recommendations of the finance com mittee which deprived the board of equalization of power to assess corpor ate holdiugs and vest that authority in the assessors*. Senator Taylor introduced a resolu tion, which passed, calling upon the attorney general for an opinion as to the right of the present session to re call or rescind or modify any of the amendments to the constitution sub mitted to the people of the Thirteenth General Assembly at their regular ses sion. The Senate Investigation committee, which Is trying to ascertain who took the roll call on the third readiug of the employers’ liability bill, is expected to report some day this week. One Inter ested In the result of the Investigation said last evening that when the com mittee did report •■something would drop." Representative Meade Ilammoml of Delta county favors i>ermittlng the board of equalization to make the as sessments until the people may have an opportunity next year to enact a constitutional amendment creating a state tax commission which will super sede both the individual assessors and the board of equalization. The committee on Insurance has or dered printed Martin’s bill compelling insurance companies to pay Into the state treasury 2V& per cent, of the gross amount received by them for premiums. It Is believed that a ma jority of the legislators favor the bill and that It has an excellent chance of passing. It will add at least SIOO,OOO to the revenue of the state. Representative Briscoe has been can vassing the House on the resolution he Intends to Introduce declaring that the only business of the special session is to pass a revenue law. He said last night that he had received encourage ment from a majority of the members. He expects that the House will be with him and that, unless a deadlock with the Senate occurs, the House and Senate will be ready to adjourn next Saturday. Iu response to the resolution of Sen ator Seldomridge, asking an account ing of money received under the fiat tax. State Auditor Crouter has sent the following statement to the Senate: Number of companies on books and notified 21.500 Number of companies that paid. 2.051 Amount paid under protest. .$32,902.74 Amount paid without protest 21,870.71 Total $54,833.45 It Is the purpose of the leaders of the majority of the House to submit the revenue bill to the Supreme Court when It has passed second reading. The judges will be asked to give an opinion on the validity of the sectiou directing the assessors to assess cor porate property and meet In Denver to determine upon a basis of valuatlou. The minority contends that the latter provision practically creates n state board of assessors and that therefore it is unconstitutional. The missing roll call on the third reading and final passage of the reg ular session of Tnnquary’s employers’ liability bill has been found. It was folded up and hid away lu the Senate journal, and Its resting place has been fingered by a score of persons since the labor organizations began their search for the missing bit of paper. To Sen ator J. Frank Adams of this county tielongs the credit for the discovery. The find was made Tuesday afternoon during a session of the Senate commit tee appointed to Investigate the disap pearance of the roll call. After the reading of the journal Monday morning Mr. Ballinger of Park arose to a question of personal privi lege. The Republican had asserted on Sunday morning that he had Intro duced a railroad commission hill, know ing that It was unconstitutional and hoping to use It to wring favors from the corporations for his many relatives who were employed by the roads. As Mr. Ballinger proceeded It was appar ent that he was very much affected. "I presented the bill in good faith,” be said. “I believe the Democracy owes It to the people of the state to en act it. Its constitutionality lius been affirmed by the highest court in the land. One provision of my bill I con sider of especial Importance, and it was suggested by the death of my son, who was killed while acting as engi neer on the South Park, September 21st. It provides that the commission shall Inspect the roadbed and equip ment of the roads and see that they are safe. If such a law had been on the statute liooks my boy might have been alive, and Its enactment now will save ninny lives.” In l>oth houses, by rising vote, Thursday, the following resolution was adopted: The Joint committee of the Senate and House chosen to draft resolutions upon the death of ex-Governor Davis 11. Waite, bog leave to submit the fol lowing resolutions: Resolved, that in the death of ex- Grverner Davis H. Waite the state mourns the loss of a patriotic citi zen, and a statesman of strict probity and integrity. i Resolved, that we recognize In 4ilA public administration an honest effort to conserve the general welfare of thfc people and the utter futility of all tempts to swerve him from the deter- 1 mined path of right and justice. Resolved, that the sympathy c f the people of the state of Colorado, through their representatives in Legis lature assembled, be hereby tendered to the family of the deceased, and that k copy of these resolutions, 'properly engrossed, be extended to them. Resolved, that these resolutions be spread upon the journals of the Sen ate and House. In discussing the revenue bill the other day Mr. Montgomery condemned the Supreme Court for comitelliug the rectification of the assessments of the board of assessors. "Judge Campbell returned from Europe In order to make that decision,” said he. "It would hove been to the eternal credit of the state If he had remained lu Europe. The purpose of the decision was to -penult Judge Rlncr to get his uose lu. aud he succeeded. His opinion was not ale ■ gal but a political opinion. Nay, nay, not that—lt was a corporation decis ion. It will go down to posterity as the greatest monument to disgrace ever erected In this state. Tire Judge went even farther than he wus asked. He not only declared the board of thlr- I teen assessors unconstitutional, but he announced that the Legislature could not vest assessing power In the fifty seven assessors sitting as a board. He 1 said that an assessor had no authority outside his. own county. We have fifty-seven sheriffs created by the same law as the assessors, and no one ques tions their power outside their home counties. It is an inherent power in the legislature to confer additional au thority upon a statutory or constitu tional officer so long as that authority makes for the Interests of the state. That was never questioned until we se cured a new class of lawyers and cor porations decided to dodge their taxes.” Mr. Bradley of Arapahoe county has introduced the following resolution in relation to the controversy at the State School of Mines: "Whereas, it is man. ifest by articles which have appeared In several of the daily papers of the state that a serious condition of affairs prevails at the State School of Mines nt Golden; and, whereas. It is alleged that the students of said institution are In open rebellion against the fac ulty thereof; nud whereas, the students of said institution .allege the most grievous abuses of tbeir rights and privileges on the part of the faculty, and numberless discourtesies; and, whereas, the said students declare they will cease tlielr attendance at the Insti tution unless the abuses alleged are cor rected; and, whereas, such a condition of affairs and the allegations made on the part of the studenta of the said in stitution are of such a nature as to de mand a most searching Investigation of the charges made, and also the gen eral conduct aud management of said Institution by the faculty and Its trus tees; therefore, be It resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring therein, that a committee of five be appointed, three on the part of the House and two on the part of the Senate, to investigate the charges made against the management and the faculty of said Institution, and report back to the General Assembly as early as practicable; resolved, that the com mittee have power to subpoena aud examine witnesses and require them to testify under oath In order that the Investigation may be full aud ef fective.” The House spent nearly all of Mon day discussing the revenue bill. Judge SchT*elgert resumed his speech lu fa vor of the state board of equalization. He declared that the board of assess ors Increased the assessments of the corporations as a retaliatory measure. "The railroads made a great said he. "when they ignored the assess ors. If they had made the proper pre sentation of their case, this valuation would have been materially reduced. You might as well attempt to pass an net to bind the Union as to give an as sessor power outside his county. When the Individual assessor meets with h.s colleagues he surrenders his discretion anil abides by the will of the majority. At least that would l»e the effect If this law means anything, and I am discussing It on the supposition that it docs mean something. It will not Ik* gainsaid that an officer cannot surrender his discretion. If he does his net is void. The Legislature could trust the hoard of equalization to make the assessments for the next year, or until the constitution might be changed. He pointed out the i>olitleal advantage of going before the ia*op»e of Colorado this fall with candidates who would be members of the board of equalization, and who would stand on a platform pledging an enforcement of the revenue law. He concluded with nil appeal to the House to defeat the committee’s amendment, and as ho re sumed his sent he was warmly ap plauded. Mr. Ballinger argued that the decisions of Judges Dixon and Bluer were neither of them the opinion of a court of final resort. Eventually the Supreme Court of Colorado must de termine the validity of the law. Judge Bluer held that the constitution did not authorize the assessors to do anything outside their county, but he did not argue that the constitution forbade the exercise of that power. "This Legis lature Is not possessed of sufficient power to compel the assessor of Park county to assess the private property of his county at full cash value, while the board of equalization is assessing corporate property at 20 cents on the dollar. He will go to Jail, If necessary, the county commissioners will go wUli him and we will support him.” Mr. Whitelaw of Ran Juan delivered an eloquent speech In support of entrust ing the assessors with the duty of as sessing cori>ornte property. He In sisted that it was not proposed to cre ate a board of assessors and he charged the minority with misrepresenting the position of the majority. He believed the Supreme Court erryd when It held that the board of equalisation had as sessing power. ROOSEVELT BOY DOING WELL Slight Improvement, but Crisis Yet to Come. Groton, Mass., Feb. 12.—The reports from the sick room of Theodore Roose velt, Jr., the eldest son of the Presi dent, who since Thursday last has been 111 with pneumoula at the Groton school Infirmary, tend to show au Im provement and at 8 o’clock last night his condition was authoritatively stated to be better than it was at the same time the night lief ore.

BEFORE HE TOOK VOGELER’S ■« Cwl«l Mot Touch llla Wlte’e Dim •era aad They Were "Fit for m K)ag.~ Bo writes our esteemed friend Mr. Frank Chambers of 9 Bennett street; Chiswick: "For over two years 1 suf fered agonies from indigestion and be came reduced to a mere shadow of my stalwart self. I would return home from my business feeling so faint that I could hardly drag one leg after the other. My dear wife did all she pos sibly could to tempt me with dainty dishes, and as I entered the house 1 sniffed and thought: ’Qh, how good; 1 know I can eat that!’ But alas! no sooner had I eaten a few mouthfuls, when I felt sick; severe pains shot through my chest and shoulder blades, my eyes swam and everything seemed black, I became alternately hot and cold, and got up from such a dainty dinner heartily sick of living, and feel ing I was a sore trial to everybody. I may mention that I was also very much troubled with scaly skin, and often bolls. But one evening I noticed my wife seemed more cheerful than usual. I questioned her and found she had been reading a pamphlet she had received of men afflicted Just as I was, and who had been cured by Vogeler’s Com pound. Said she. ’What gives me more faith in It Is that it is made from the formula of an eminent physician now In active practice in tne West End of London, so I am sure It is no quack thing.’ ’All right, dear, let’s have a bottle,’ said I. After taking the con tents of the first bottle, I felt very much better, and determined to give, this remedy a fair trial, and I can pos itively assure you that a few bottles made a new man of me. I cam sleep well, eat anything, and thoroughly en jjy life. I have told several of my friends whom I knew were suffering the same as myself, ana they all wish me to say that they are like new men. I sincerely bless the great physician who gave you the formula of Vogeler's Curative Compound, and also your selves for making its virtues known to a suffering public.” The proprietors (The Bt.
