GaJlcos and Meechem,
(Contidued from page One.) their aid and the aid of the Coun cilmen Duncan and Spiess, and the good citizens of Quay county, I was successful in passing the only County measure during the last term of the Assembly, while there were over a dozen bills of this nature before the Legislature which failed to pass. This County measure is known as House Bill No. 61. The passage of this bill means that we have taken into Quay county two prosperous little towns, namely, Logan and Nara Visa. It means that we now have a county which will be self-supporting; it means that we will not have to borrow money from the Territory to hold our terms of court; it means that the county officers of Quay county, will, in the future receive their hard-earned salary, which since the creation of this county they have not been getting; it means about one million dollars or more of taxable property into the the treasury of our county; it means that we will have court at the reg ular terms, to prosecute the crimi nal and to release the innocent ones who are charged with crime; it means the everlasting welfare of this county. I was also successful in the pas sage of a Community Lard Grant bill, which is for the benefit of the residents of the other portions of the District which I represented, being the county of Guadalupe. The good people of that county have for fifty years last past plead ed with the legislatures for the passage of a bill of this nature but have always failed. So, there fore, I am more than pleased to have accomplished the passage of the last two measures mentioned. Both are of great benefit to each of the two counties I represented. I was the father of the following bills, and was successful in passing the most important ones. HILLS INTRODUCED IN THE HOUSE HY MR. OA I.

The 37th Assembly should be congratuled for the passage of this bill, the passage of which was mostly due to the so-called "Swift Seventeen" These seventeen mem bers of the House of Representa tives united in a body since the first day of the 37th Assembly met for the purpose of passing s.uch legislation as would be more bene ficial to the good people of the Sunshine Territory. And they were successful in the passage of many good measures.
