Madtson. Wis., Jan. 19. The Democrats Democrats made a rather ineffectual attempt to produce trouble over the primary Investigation Investigation resolution this morning, but about all they accomplished was to give Senator Suiting and Assemblymei Hughes and Kaleher a chance to de-VjT de-VjT de-VjT orations for political purposes. Tftie assembly declined to bring the resolution resolution back from the committee on privileges and elections, where it will stay until 'after Isaac Stephenson is elected senator next Tuesday, In the senate, the resolution still hangs on the calendar because a resolution resolution 'to refer it to the committee on privileges and elections failed because of lack of a quorum, although the vote was eleven to four in favor of such a measure, - There were fifty-four fifty-four fifty-four members of the assembly here this morning and fifteen senators. Several bills were Introduced, the most important being a bill giving an additional circuit Judge to Milwaukee Milwaukee county and a measure to make incurable incurable insanity a cause for divorce. Speaker Bancroft made his commute commute ! announcements. W. M. Bray of Oshkosh fared among the best of the new members, being given a position on the transportation committee and the chairmanship of the important forestry ummlttee. The Assembly Committees.

The exact form of the measure net been decided upon, but the object of the bill will be to o impel the own' of automobiles to bear the expense whii'lr-j whii'lr-j whii'lr-j is entailed niju their registry. Statistics Statistics will lie presented from the oftii-e oftii-e oftii-e of the secretary of state which will show that the state is now paying a goodly sum each year to carry out the automo bile legislation. All that is now charged fir the registration of automobiles is $1 when such registration is made, there being no charge made for renewals. If tue machine is sold, also, the registry an be transferred for fifty cents. The fee of SI. it is said, dot's not cover the cost to the state of the postage and the issuance of the number plate which is sold by the state to automobile owners, owners, to say nothing of the expense entailed entailed by clerk hire occasioned by the registration system. Two Plans Projiosed. Two plans are proposed for the rais ing of sufficient funds to meet the cost to the state of the automobile registra tion. One plan is to make an initial charge of $2 for the registration of automobiles automobiles and a subsequent charge of fifty cents annually for the renewal of the registration. The other plan pro posed is to charge a flat rate it $1 a year fur the registration of automobiles. uotti plans contemplate the wiping out altogether of the transfer system nd all persons acquiring automobiles, even though they are second hand niachiiK-s, niachiiK-s, niachiiK-s, will be treated on the basis of new au tomobile owners. In other words, the proposed plans both contemplate licensing licensing the owner of the automobile rather than the machine itself.- itself.- Clerk James McKenzie a:ul other employes in the office office of the secretary of state, who look after the registering of automobiles, do not seem to think that automobile owners owners will, offer any great amount of opposition opposition to the law, for the reason, they say that it can be easily shown that it is costing the state a very large sum annually annually to carry on the registration sys tem under present plans. They say that when the present automobile legislation was framed, it was never dreamed that any such number of automobiles would be in use in the state as are now being operated in Wisconsin. The Wage Kxeniptlon Law. The Social Democratic members of legislature are preparing to meet the fight of the grocers, the butchers and the various ether retail associations of the state will make this winter to secure change in the wage exemption law. The Socialists believe that the present exemption law. which insure SOO a month to a workingman for three months, is a righteous measure, so long as property owners are allowed the exemption exemption of a homestead valued at $5,-000. $5,-000. $5,-000. - What is more, after looking over the bill, which the convention of the Retail Dealers' -. association here yeaterday proposed to the governor, the Socialists claim that they consider it an even worse measure than the flat rate re ductions of the exemption law which have heretofore been proposed. The law which the retail dealers now ask would make ten per cent of every man's earnings subject to garnishment, and the Social Democrats claim that the sole object of such a law would be to place In the hands or collection agencies a club whereby they could threaten to garnishee a man each week indefinitely until the debt'was paid, as although the man might plead the ex emption the ten per cent of his wages would be sufficient to pay the costs of the garnishment action and would thus protect the persona making the garnishment garnishment from loss. Governor Is Non-Commlttal. Non-Commlttal. Non-Commlttal. In the meantime, although a hundred garnishment proceedings might be begun begun none of them would aid toward any real reduction of the debt. The delegations from the various re tail dealers' associations who. called upon the governor yesterday did not receive any intimation from him that he would look with any more favorable light upon the bill which they proposed this time than he did upon the measure measure which they offered two years ago. At that time the governor vetoed a bill changing the amount of the wage ex emption. All the governor wouia ao despite the appeals of L. B. Rock of Milwaukee, the attorney for the Grocers' Grocers' asooclatlon, was that he would promise to look into the bill which is proposed by the retail dealers of the state. In addition to meeting here yesterday, the various retail dealers' associations of the state are sending to the members a large amount of literature in which they are requesting a change in the wage exemption law. More Partisan Than Factional From present indications, there is likely to more partisan than factional lines upon legislative issues here tnis winter. The Republican organization is verv strongly Intrenched, and if the or ganlzatlon leaders desire to do so, there Is no doubt that they can line up very strong majorities in both houses. They have shown this fact very plainly on the nrlmary investigation measure. As a matter of fact, however, it is said that as far as legislation is concerned verv little of it. unless it be of a poli tical character, will be decided on either factional or partisan lines. Book Companies Interested. The proposition for the state to pub llsh Its own text books is coming before before this legislature again. Evidently the various agents for school book com pantes in the state are aware of this fact, as they are already showing up in Madison, sizing up the legislature anu preparing to oppose any state text book measure which may appear. FVinr flniintv Ontlnn Rilln. Requests have been made upon the legislative reference library for the drafting of no less than four measures on the subject of county' option, and one or two of these bills win umiouot edly get to the legislature within a very few days. It is said there win iw line-ly line-ly line-ly six or eight county option bills presented presented before the time for the Introduction Introduction of new business expires. For State Institutions. Numerous bills are coming In for Im mediate appropriations to the various state Institutions. Most of these bills are to carry on work which has already been begun at them and upon which It l desired there shall be no delay. One of the bills for an immediate appropria tion will be for money to be used on buildings In the progress of construe' tlon at the reformatory at Green Bay GATES FEARS HYDROPHOBIA.
