Through the efforts of Senator
Whithey and Mr. Frank Street,
the county organization bill now
stands in to pass the 'senate this
morning practically without op
position. Tuesday morning either
side to the constroversy was too
much in doubt as to the probable
outcome of a vote on the bill to
encourage them to press it to
passage. And while both the
friends and opponents of the
measure were putting in their
best licks to secure votes, Mr.
Street opened up negotiations
with some of the pine land owners
to get them to use their influence
with Mr. Walker to withdraw his
opposition. Tuesday afternoon,
while the house was fighting over
the Hastings veto, Senator Whit
ney accepted an invitation to a
meeting with leading Minneapolis
lumbermen, and the result is now
said to have been that the pine
land owners have asked and been
granted further amendments to
thef bill, and that a committee of
Uig|senute, coneisting of Senators
W-IntBcy and Potter, have redraft
ed the measure according to agree
nient. Quite a wave of happiness
passed oyer the senate when the
agreement was found out.
