rial. 1 - Governor Cruoa took mmp hot
shot at members of the legislature
i-i his massage accompanying the veto
of the bill appropriating I80.000 for

tending the special session. The
members accepted theae without sny
on. pllniciitary remarks but adopt-
ed n motion by Representatlvi Carrof
Muskogee to mak" an effort to pass
the measure over the governors veto
on Friday afternoon st 2 o'clock.
In giving his reasons for diMpro' -
inir the measure the governor declar-
ed that it was clearly the intention of
the constitution that members should
draw their mileage only when they ac-
tually travetled from their homes to
the capltol and that any other con-
struction would he merely technical.
If economy In government It to he
aecured the governor said hnl n
light example should be set by the
servants of the people and that It
hardly looked well to place a fechnl-
ini construction on the constitution
and accept mileage when most mem-
bers actually remained in Oklahoma
City at the end of the regular session
11 ml did not travel from their home
ti the special session. The executive
said that If any state official should
1 harge up mileage to the state from
Muskogee to Oklahoma City for ex-
ample when he did not mnke the trip
he would be sehjected to Impeach-
ment. The governor stated thai while
hi. me went home during the re.iss
moat members remained In Oklahoma
City anw were not entitled t mileage
only bj :i moat technical construction
of the constitution.

During a Campaign.
OKLAHOMA city April 3. (Spe-
cial.) In spite of persistent efforts
of members of the senate to adjourn
Thursda) afternoon to go to lite base-
ball game enough of the members
defeated the movement and the sen-
ats proceeded with the consideration
of the chool code. Almost imme-
diately however members who hu
desired 10 go to the game absented
themselves and only a few remained
to do the work.
Il was agreed that as the sch 001
code unstata of 160 pagea and about
20 pages hue been gone over during
the ::st four days only the new mat-
ter In the proposed law would he
considered although all the sections
would be read. It is believed that
under such un arrangement ihe sen-
ate may complete th.- work In com-
mittee of the whole on the . ode.
The provision In the proposed law
which would Involve u change from
the 0 d custom of the voters at the
same time of the annual elei tion of
officers for the school district voting
on s tax levy for a longer term of
s bool lhan alread prescribed was
eliminated from the proposed law.
This was agreed on because It was
deemed ill-advised for the school pa-
trons to vote on the two propositions
it th. same time With this cr imina-
tion tht- law remains as the election
of school officers of the districts re-
main the same.
The committee on state and count)
affairs to which was referred the
bills proposing to abolish and con-
solidate county offices reported s
plan for such consolidation and abol-
ishment which will be fo'lowed by
bills on the subject. The report will
be taken up and considered later by
The same committee reported fav-
orably on the bill of Shaw and Mi -
CJIntlc as to campaign pledges of
iinriidatcs the bill requiring thai
pledges mado during the campaign
must be kept. The committee amend-
ed the bill to read "written'' pledgee
Senator Carpenter then introduced a
bin along the lines recommended in
the committee report butw hlch re-
quires that pledges must be printed
in a newspaper and if the candidate
vv hO has been elected does not do so
he suuil forfeit his office.
