session the Senatorial deadlock Is unbroken and 1JieelecUonf of a Scqaior seems to be as unlikely now as at the beginning of the joint session when It was shown that neither Governor Beckham npr Gov Bradley had enough votes to wInI without getting results from the even Democrats who refused to Stand with the Beckham forces A ballot was taken yesterday but it was purely perfunctory It being agreed that only one vote should be cast torf each candidate although nearly aIr the members were present or paired The reason for no ballot yesterday was because the House had adjourned suddenly a few minutes after it was to order by the speaker and there was a question whether or not a an election would be legal in view of the fact that the House was not In session at the time of the joint qalt lot The topic of conversation yeSVerday after the adjournment was the atti tulle of the speaker in adjourning the House without giving anybody a chance to make a demand for the ayes and noes The motion to a jorun was made by Representative J Hal Wood lordone of the Democrats soon after the House bad been called to order It came as a surprise to the entire membership with probably a few exceptions Representative L W Arnett was on his feet find was about to make a similar motion but Mr Wood ford beat him to it When the motion to adjourn Was put there was a roar of layes and louder roar oS noes but the speaker said The ayes have It the House stands adjourned until Monday at 12 oclock Representative George Wilson was on Its feet demanding a call ot the roll on the ayes and noes but the Speaker could not hear him and it was all over The adjournment pre vented a report on the county unit bill which was to have been made by he Public Morals committee This Committee has been trying for two days to make a report having lieve to report at any time and put the bill on Its passage but Representative Robert Enlowr the chairman has not been given a chance to get In his report He tried on Thursday and failed and again pn yesterday and again failed Everything else has taken a backseat during the last week in favor of the county unit bill and even the Senatorial raco has become a side issue compared to the fight which the prohibition measure Is causing t The DIll has been the bone pf con tention all during the present session and now that the committee is ready to report and the bill has been given Its second reading and is ready to be puton its passage the fight Is getting warm The Public Morals Com mlttee had a meeting last Wednesday to hear arguments for or against the bill but only arguments for It were heard as the whisky men did not choose to make an appeal to a com mlttee which they say was in favor of the bill from the first At that hearing many temperance people from all over the State and many ministers were present and spoke for temperance and for the county unit bill be- Ing extended so as to apply to every county in the State With this hear- Ing the Public Morals committee decided It had waited long enough and agreed to make the report on Thurs day At that time a motion was trade to have ian afternoon sea sion so the report of the corn that t 7rj air St talKl out ti is adopted p n a j the rules s e adjou from day tcfl KTould be to Wf time fixed byflj House by a majority vote The first bills to reach the Gover nor went through the last formalities yesterday afternoon and will be ready for the GovernorS signature or his veto when he returns from the east Saturday night The bill which went through first was that providing a stenopfapher for the Governor It mas a matter of pride with the Demo crats that the n rst bill to pass was a bill asked for by the Governor and for his benefit The second bill tQ pass was one providing stenographers and messengers for the douse and Senate In spite of the deadlock over the Senatorial race and the fight over the county unit bill both of which have delayed legislation considerably much has been accomplished by the two houses Both have passed a pure bill but the bills which passed were separate bills although being identical The house bill probably will go to the Senate and be passed there Legislation of Interest to farmers and especially the tobaccovgrowers Is also progressing favorably and with due rapidity The Senate has passed bill requiring pure farm seeds and providing an appropriation for its enforcement so that when a farmer buys he will have a guarantee of It what it purports ito be The Crecellus tobacco bill which provides for a fine for violation of a contract- to pool tobacco has passed the House and will go through the Senate next week It tics met with no opposition thus far and itis believed that it will help the tobacco growers societies greatly The McChord bill putting the tobacco companies under the control of the police power of the State has been hard fought before the Com mittees but has been given a favorable report and has been made a special order for next Wednesday in the House and It Is hoped that it can be passed that day The bill providing fiaxbt 50 an acre on all white burley tobacco grown In Kentucky during 1908 hear also been reported favorably by the committee and will be brought up for passage In a few days The bill appropriating 20QOO a year for two years for the erection of buildings on the state fairgrounds was alto passed by the Senate It allowIedMcChord bill and the Crecelius bill and will make an especial effort to pass these two bills out of all the number of tobacco bills which have been introduced during the session- A fight on the bill appropriating 200000 to the Kentucky State Cola lego and 150000 to the two nonno schools developed in the House on Thursday and the bill was postponed until Tuesday morning when it w n come up as aspeclal order It Is probable that the bill will be passed that day The bill appropriating 50000 for a Governors mansion was passed by the Senate so that the week has iio tbeen barren of results even though- her has been little done toward settling the Senatorial race Members Take a Trip Tlhe Charitable Institutions Committees of the
