LEGISLATURE SUCCEEDS IN
PUTTING THREE BILLS
BUSY WEEKJN THE HOUSE
Will Have To Take Up the Attorney*
General'! Bill and the Bone Dry
Bill Both of Which Have
Passed the Senate
The turning point in the prpsent
session of the legislature, that is from
routine in shaping and perfecting hills
in cjmmittoe, to turning ouf real leg-
islation has been reached. From now
on until expirution of the sixty-day
period the legislative mill is expected
to grind steadily.
So far the iinished work of the ses-
sion, that is bills passed by both
branches and signed by the governor,
consists of three measures, two of
■which make the necessary appropria-
tion for the expense of the session, the
other authorizing the capital commis-
sion to open and improve certain
streets leading to the capitol build-
Interest in the work of the session,
■which for the past ten days has been
centered in the senate, has shifted to
the house of representatives this
•week, as practically every important
measure before the assembly now
awaits action by that branch.
These include the Ferguson “bone
dry” bill, the so-called “attorney-gen-
eral's bill,” both backed by the pro-
hibition influences of the state, the
free textbook bill, legislation affecting
the appellate judiciary and the Nes-
bitt state market commission bill.
The attorney-general’s bill caused a
bitter debate in the house although
it Anally went through by a vote of
27 to 14, the following being the line-
Roll call on the bill was:
Yeas: Bauman, Bickel, Board,
Chase of Nowata, Clin, Cordell, David-
son of Haskell, Davis, Edmondson,
.Edwards, Ferguson, Hall, Hickman,
Hogg, Johnson, Keller, Kerr, Killman,
Logan, McIntosh, O'Neill, Rider, Risen,
Ryan, Thomas, Vaughan. Total 26.

man, Tucker, Watrous Wilson of
Dewey, Wilson of Greer. Total 15.
Excused: Buckner, McAlester. T<^
Absent: Knight. Total 1.
Honors for the week in the Senate
■were divided by this bill with the
other Anti-Saloon League proposition,
Ferguson’s “bone-dry” bill. With
inly five votes against it, the bill was
passed by the senate without debate.
It tow goes to the house.
The senate roll call on the bill was:

Carpenter, Chase of Seminole, Chase
of Nowata, Cordell, Davidson of Tulsa,

guson, Golobie, Hall, Hickman, Hogg,

Although passed by the senate vith
so little opposition it was charged that
many senators expected the House to
kill it. A strong movement has been
started to drop it entirely and make
the proposition an initiative measure
at the next election.
So far none of the institutional ap^
propriation bills have passed either
branch. The senate committee is
handling the general appropriation
bill, making the apropria'ions of the
government, and the house appropria-
tions committee is handling the gen-
eral deficiency bill. Neither has so
far been reported out.
The McIntosh committee of the
senate, appointed to investigate
charges made against three members
of the state board of agriculture by
Freeman E. Miller, has not yet re-
ported. -Five appointments of the
governor have not yet been confirmed
by the senate. These are considered
as “aces" in the legislative deck of
cards and may not be played by the
senate until late in the session. R.
H. McLish, C. B. Campbell and J. J.
Savage, members of the state board
of agriculture: Harry Beeler, repub-
lican member of the state election
board, and Martin Clark, member of
the state mining board, are the five
men bolding places on appointment
by the governor who have not yet
8tuart Answers Owen
That the plan of Senator Robert L.
Owen to take from tho supreme court
tho right to pass on the constitution-
ality of the acts of congress, if adopt-
ed. would bring about a revolution in
this rountry was the statement of
Judge C. B. Stuart, Oklahoma City
lawyer, in an address before a Joiut
session of the legislature.
Judge Stuart's effort was a defense
of the Judiciary. He characterized
the Owen resolution as being opposed
to the fundamental principles of a
constitutional form of government.
Senate Joint Resolution No. 8 by
McIntosh and Chase of Seminole of
the senate, and Durant and Newman
of the house, providing for tho reap-
propriation of unexpended portions of
funds appropriated by the Fifth legis-
lature for the Durant normal school,
was passed on third reading in tho
senate after u long argument.
The senate passed finally Senator
Thomas’ bill coLtaining provisions
for appointment and pay of national
guard officers in conformity with t he
national defense act and Senator
Vaughn's bill to provide for approval
of school building plans In regard to
heating, lighting and ventilation were
passed. The latter was amended to
make the district school board and
the county superintendent advisors
instead of the state superintendent,
as was proposed in tho original dratt.

The fight of Ed. Boyle, chief mine,

trol of the oil ana gas production of
the state, appeared in the house for
the first time when the bill to estab-

tion with the corporation commission
was taken up. Representative Wim-
bish of Ada offered an amendment,
proposing that the bureau be conduct-
ed as a part of the department of the

objected to the amendment on the
ground that enforcement of the oil

made a part of the work of th* cor-

chairman of the house committee on
appropriations, authorizes official com-
pilation of the records of the proceed-

for salaries and expenses of those en-
gaged in the work. Congressman Wil-
liam 11. Murray, who was president of
tha convention is authorized to do
the fcork and to employ the neces-
sary additional assistance. A short
time ago each member of the legislat-
ure received a letter from Mr. Mur-
ray, saying that unless something
was dona by the legislature to have
the records put in permanent form for
preservation, he would destroy them.

Since E. B. Howard, state auditor,
went into office on Jan. 11, 1915, his

expense of $64,440. The percentage

Afraid of Pink Weevil.
That the pink boll weevii which has
developed in northern Mexico is a
very serious menace and that it event-
ually will reach the United States,
despite all precautions and preventa-
tive measures, is the belief of Ed. L.
Ayers of Houston, chief inspector of
orchards and nurseries of the Texas
department of agriculture, who called
upon President F. M. Gault of the
state board of agriculture last week.
Mr. Ayers visited the San Pedro
listrict in northern Mexico, where he
learned that the ravages of this new
insect pest created a 50 per cent loss
,n the cotton crop. He says it is dif-
ferent from the boll weevil with which
the cotton planters of this country
have had to contend in past years, in
the fact that it attacks the seed of
the cotton plant.
