Following the final passage
. of the land bill on Tuesday,
both branches of the legisla
ture gave themselves over to
relaxation, says the Republi
can. The house put in a full
day without the complete ac
complishment of anything. It
went into the committee of
the whole for the purpose of
considering a half dozen
measures on the calendar but
only one of them was consid
ered, the senate bill for the
amendment of the semi-annual
tax payment law passed
in the regular session. The
proposed amendment con
sists only of a change in the
time of the year when the
semi-annual taxes fall due.
Under the law as it now
stands, the first payment is
not due until some time after
the taxes are needed for the
schools and it was therefore,
proposed to change the dates
to the first Monday in No
vember and the first Monday
of May.
The judiciary committee, to
which the bill had been re
ferred, reported -it out with a
house bill of the same tenor
and along with it were several
amendments by the commit
tee. Others were offered in
the course of the day and de
bated, though the debate hov
ered about the principle of
the semi-annual system, tho
it is already established and
the abolition of it is not pro
posed in either of the bills.
Mr. Edwards, however, pro
posed an amendment that
would have repealed the law
and established the old law,
but no enthusiasm was arous
ed, though, Mr. Johns, the
principal advocate of the
senate bill, pronounced it a
Late in the afternoon the
senate and the house bills
were both referred to the com
mittee on judiciary with in
structions to present them
this morning at ten o'clock.
The next bill on the calen
dar was laid over without los
ing its place. Similar action
was taken on the next one,
and the one after that until
all of them were thus dis
posed of. "Is this being
done," asked an uneasy mem
ber, "that they may all be
killed together?" There was
no reply, but on the face of
things, it looked as if the
house was planning a Roman
holiday, a carnival of slaughr
ter, an-argyjof Jblopck aiWkoien
sale legalized murder.
The house, after all this
sanguinary planning, took an
adjournment until ten o'clock
this morning:
When the house met in the
morning, Speaker Brooks,
leaving the chair, offered a
motion for a reconsideration
of the vote by which the bill
creating the department of
i labor has been passed. -He
had voted for it, he said; with
'out a full apprehension. .He
had come to the conclusion
I that such a department was
'not needed. The laborers eng
gaged in mining, and that was
the chief industrial pursuit in
! the state, were well protected
by the mine inspection law.
.There was no other industry
of such importance as to war
rant the expenditure of so
large a sum as would be nec
essary to maintain a depart
ment of labor.
. This view was taken also
by Mr. Christy, who believed
that such a department would
be worse than useless. The
labor commissioner, he said,
would be apt to be an agitator,
at any rate, he would have to
make a showing of activity,
and, in consequence, he sure
would encourage disputes
which might be averted by
employers and employes
without outside interference.
. Mr. Pinkley asked the
speaker if it would suit him if
his motion to reconsider were
killed. The speaker replied
that that would serve his pur
pose; he desired only to put
himself on record as opposing
the bill. The motion was then
put.and lost by a vote of 13
to 15."
In the morning session of
the senate little was done be
yond the reference of house
bills and the reports of com
mittees. The committee on
appropriations recommended
the passage of the bill for the
relief of settlers in Navajo
and Apache counties, suffer
ers from the floods of last
April. There was alsoa very
friendly expression in favor
of the bill appropriating
$2,733.90 for the salaries of
members of the land commis
sion from March Wto June 1
of this year. Later in the day
the senate passed the bill al

Beside the calendar of the
committee of the whole house
including the semi-annual
payment of taxes bill, it is
possible that the Edwards
prohibition bill will be taken
up, but its defeat is foreshad
owed. In that case there will
be no prohibition legislation
: unless the house takes up the
senate bill construing the
constitutional amendment.
The status of the anti-capital
i punishment bill is uncertain.
When, on Monday, its friends
failed to secure its reference
to the committee on enrolled
and engrossed bills, Mr. Pink
ley, the author, changed its
vote in order to move for a
reconsideration of the vote.
That motion had not been
made and it is suspected that

with the week, though in
some quarters the opinion
was expressed that the end
would not come before next
Tuesday when the last appro
priation for the current and
contingent expenses of the
session will be exhausted. The
exhaustion of the session at
that time would not be regard
ed as a coincidence that
would excite remarks on the
