Opponents Threw Dust in the Eyes
of Champions of the Measure
Tho surprise of the legislative ses-
sion hapiioned this morning when Uio
quarantine bill went down to defeat
by a vote of 11 to IB. Up to the time
a motion to reconsldur was made
thcro was no thought that the bill
would bo dofoatod. It was known that
thero was a strong lobby hero to do-
feat tho bill but it was thought that
it had failed. When tho motion f
Jones of Logan to reconsldor tno Wit
in order to make It ox'lusivo was lot
by a tio vote It began to look bad for
Tho spoaker soomod to catch the
hurrlcano In tho air for he cut off
Nlsbctt short when that mombor
wanted to explain hlB vote and oven
before that called Jones of Dewey to
order for making a speech when he
was explaining his voto.
As a result the cattlemen have won
a great victory and this most far
reaching moasure was dofoatod when
In full view of success.
Tho voto was not along party linos
both parties having members on both
sides of tho question t was how-
ver as follows:
For tho bill Dalllngor Francis
Harrison James Jester Mathews

kin and tho Speaker; against tho

mins Dockor Jones of Dewey Jones
