When "noses' were counted" Sun-
day there were four senators openly
slating they would favnr or oppose
iiumnuicm according to thi wishes of
the democratic organization--
.M.-hn!a ..f l.f...l. M..1M... f
Durant Anglln of lloldouvllle- and
Hollouay of Hugo.
Holloway and Anglin place their
construction of suth duties on a'
h.gli piano and qualify but they
nru listed as purely itdmlulutratlon
and their' votes have shown they
ure regulars among the regulars.
Naturally thu senators who havo
had other Jobs through tho friend-
liness of tho governor Dearmon
and Draiighon aro administration
men to tho core and Ilcnsley fed-
eral appointee will trot and vuto be-
hind hl.'i appointed companions.
To those seven faithful can be
added 1'ugh of llolse and Simpson
of Thomas or nine In all who will
very probably never knowingly cast
a vote that would lnconvenltncu or
causo discomfort to the present
democratic state ml ministration.
More May I'all In I .Inc.
This must not be construed to
mean that tho administration has
not greater strength than thosu
mentioned for It has but always
those t.lne will be arrayed against
any meahuro or project that would
imperil or even weaken thu control
of parly machinery tho governor
hits on the state. However such
additional strength as can tie given
to thu statu machine mimic organ
must como through the gro.up of
senators who rally around iho lieu-
tenant governor thu more powerful
because Trapp tho moment he sees
tho goicrnor reaching for the steer-
ing wheel cum throw his sttength
to tho opposition and send the gov-
ernor to tho discards
Thus the week's session opened
with the republican house mill try-
ing to gather Into one solid masa
on tho vital measures that aro ap-
proaching open consideration ami
perhaps shy of flvo members In
that full strength it is even pos-
sible thnro are other hottso republl-
canswho aro so strongly nttacluid
to the governor's highway program
that they cannot break loose with-
out losing teeth.
lloads and bridges aro Just or-
dinary objects to look at but there
Is always necessity for men and ma-
terial to be used before wo can havo
