Revenue for School and Road Funds the Insurance Bill. Boise, Ida., Feb. G.—Special to Tribune.—Senator Dewey has Introduced two important measures relative to liquor license fees. .One provides for a reduction of the retail fee from $500 to $300, and for the Increase of the wholesale fee from $200 to $300, and requires druggists and merchants who sell intoxicating liquors to pay the same license fee a.K saloon-keepers. The fee for selling In country districts Is fixed at $100. The bill also makes a dea'ler •who sells or gives away liquor to habitual, drunkards liable for damages, to be paid to the relatives of such drunkard, and renders his license subject to revocation., The other measure provides that 50 per cent of alZ revenue^ arising from liquor and. gambling licenses shall be paid into-the school fund of the district in which, collected, and that the other 50 per cent shall bo paid Into the county road fund, • except In incorporated cities,; -wnere ,one-half shall be paid into the city i'schpol fund, and one-half into the city treasury. The gambling license fees are now all paid into this school "fund.' Ten per cent of the liquor license moneys is at present turned Into, -the. fund for the redemption of State capital bonds, and the remaining- 90 per cent is used for general county purposes. Senator Dewey Is of the o-pln- j Ion, and he 'believes -a good majority of I 'the"Senate agrees with him, that the ' distribution of the moneys as proposed by him, In the Interest of good roads and better schools, would be more satisfactory to the people <tha.n is the present -apportionment of the revenues In question.' .15. H. Dewey, the young Senator from Owyheo and Cassia, who enjoys the distinction of representing 'the district in which he was born, has -been savagely attacked by Sweet newspapers for changing from Sweet to Shoup. Tho' principal accwa-tion brought -against him is that he made pledges repeatedly to the people of his county 'throughout the campaign to vote for Sweet. Senator Dewey says, however, that he no p'ubllc promises to his constituents to support Sweet, and that the few men to wham he gave assurances to that effect Irave /absolved him from all obligation on account of such prom^pes, as have two-thirds of tha delegates to 'the convention -Hiat nominated him. He has been appealed -to by Senator Dubols 'and others to return to Sweet, but he remains firm In the belief that he is properly represent- dng the wishes of his constituents in •the course -he Is following. ; REPEAL/ OF THE TEST OATH. Among the bills passed -the one to repeal -the test oath is of srreat -political significance. It recognizes 'the sin- cerity of the Mormon people in their statements that they -will 'obey the laws and places them on 'a par -with E. H. JDewey- the other religious denominations of the State, so -far as politics is concerned. In the Legislature -the representatives the Mormon Church sent -up this yeai- are splendid men, and are loyally working for the best interests of the State. NEW INSURANCE BILL. A bill has been lately Introduced to regulate insurance matters in Idaho that i-3 of much interest to the people. Tihe re are at present sixty companies doing business here, bringing in a total revenue -of ?30BO. Under the proposed la\v, it Is estimated the revenue -will bo $10,800,. a net gain to the State of over $7000. Under the present- law many agents solicit without certificates, as no provision is made by which the expense of invest)gating them can be .made, .and hence they 'arc not compelled, to take out certificates, which they would 'be compelled -to do by the Insurance Commissioner. Under the proposed law the State Auditor is made Commissioner of Insurance-, but while this measure adds -to his official duties, it does not increase his salary. No fire insurance company can issue a policy in which provision is not made for cancellation of the policy at the request of the policy holder -and the return of the unearned premium, nor can a life policy be issued that does not contain a non- forfeiture clause after three payments. It provides that -all losses must be paid within thirty days of proof of. death, or the license of the company Is forfeited. CORRUPT PRACTICES BILL. The bill Introduced by Representative McCarthy to prevent the corrupt use of money at elections provides that each political p-arty shall appoint a committee of five to have the exclusive handling of all party funds for oaimpaJgn purposes. Such committees 'are required to file within 'twenty-one days after the completion of the -official canvass of any election a detailed statement of all moneys expended by them. The 'bill also requires every -candidate for office to file a s-imlar sil-atement of all moneys received and expended by him, all such statements to be made under oath. The amount to be expended by each'cand.Ida.te Is limited. Where the 'office is for .one yea)-, the amount shall not exceed 5 per cent ot 'the salary. Where the term is for two years, the 'amount is fixed at 7Mj per cent, while a candidate seeking an office for a longer term, may be permitted, to spend 10 per cent o-f the salary 'attached to such position for the term. TV| 1VTT^\H 7 The NEW In case 'any cf 0 * 0 ?,,^ party committee resort ^a.nyides^i practices or expe^tt^'Of ™oney,. the candidate elected through 9uo h meajis shall forfeit hold the office. FRENCH 'AND THE KILL/ING. The killing of a ^isonerau he stat* penitentiary. ..-ftp Howard French, a &uard was -the. cause of a. sensational incident in the Senate -wnen -che.blll appropriating .5500' to reimburse Frfnch for expenses incurred in defending- Mm- se i«- io-aji-nst a charge or murder— of whlcn°he was acquitted— was before that'bodv. Senator • Dewey expressed the- opinion '-that French was g-uiliy of c-old-blooded murder,' and Senator Boyce declared .that tne proper place for French was upon the gallows. This onslaught caused the <bni to meet the fate of the prisoner. It was quickly killed. . :_______ _ CHASOE AGAINST JUDGE BLAKE Senator Hurt Called a Liar in. the Senate. -Governor Altgeld b«en juxUdoiisly expended for the purposes for which It was appropriated, much of the distress complained of in many parts of the Sta-be would never have ensued. The report -was sent to the Committee on Public Charities. Cheyenne, Wyo., Feb. ".—Special -to Tribune.— In the Senate to-day while a 'bill 1 Fremont county from the Third Loathe Second J-udicia.l District v.-a.f« -under discussion, Senator Hurt of Natrona county, -which :s in -the Second ,7'Udlcial 'District, offered an ameml- •rnent to the bill providing- -that the counties of Converse.- Natrona. and Fremont should: compose a separate Judicial District. In -a speech in support «of the motion Senator Hurt some serious accusations aig-a.inst the official conduct and character of Judge J. Blake, the presiding 1 Judffe of the Second District. Senator Hamlin of SweeiAvater countv arose to the defense of Judge- Blake' ' and demanded that Senator Hurt's -words be taken down by the Clerk. They are as follows: "The Judge • of the Second Jud-icia.1 District has been guilty O'J conduct, which would render him liable to impeachment and which could 'be proved ihere. in fifteen' 'minutes by reputable witnesses."' Sen-o-tcr McGiH of Albany county, \vhich is Judge Blake's home, replied to Senator Hurt as follows: "The -statements of the gentleman from Natrona un mitigated lies and he knew them to .be such when he made 'them. I have known Judge Blake as a friend .and -n els-lib or. -'or twenty-five years, and I know -there Is no more upright citizen in. the State. or a man who is more highly esteemed as an official than he is." The incident created cons'iclera.ble excitement in the Senate and was the .suib-iect oC discussion about the capital during- the day. .It is possible Senator Hurt may be called upon to -answer for 'bis utterances in a criminal proceeding- "'in the courts of the State. Th° House recommended for passage a, -bi'H appropriating- $40,000 'to build -tihe Wyoming A-ffrteulfcu-ra.1 College at Lander and 'another appropriating $20,000 •to complete the State Penitentiary at Rawlins. Another 'bill favorably considered was to appropriate $12,500 to reimburse Johnson county for expenses ilncurred in the prosecution of the parties implicated in the cattlemen's invasion in that -county In April, 1892. The bill fixing the maximum legal rate of interest at 8 per cent and 12 per cent on contract parsed the Senate and WM1 go to tne Governor to-mo-rrow. Aimong 'otiher bills which are now read v", for the 'Governor's signature is the one establishing the State Soldier's Home and another 'appropriating-. $2500 to 'build a fish .-hatchery -at Sheridan. Nebraska ILellef Lincoln, 'Neb., Feb. 7. — The Senate Indulged in an -angry- debate -co- day over the alleged inactivity of .tire State Relief Commirt-ee. Senator Stewart offered a resolution .providing for the appointment of a committee of five' Senators to at once take charge of the shipment of 100 carloads of supplies now on hand. The resolution provoked a heated discussion. Stewart denounced the members of the State Commission as grossly incompetent and asserted that through 'their criminal negligence people were perishing from cold and starvation. He insisted that if a single person perishtKl in .the blizzard of yesterday that the members of the (State Commission s3io.-j.ld be arrested an-d tried for manslaughter. He also denounced the Senate for whai he termed its asinine stupidity, in. passing: a law tleing- up the relief iworlc -wlth-out so much red tapo. The discussion. soon took 2. pn.riisan turn, which was brought to a eU-inax by Caklwc-l!. who -asserted that the Corn- inissior. was -handicapped by the fact 'tha-t at least one of its members . vras a T'h-e debate was closed by the adoption of an amendment providing for :L committee of 'three 'to -wait upon -che Gcvc-rn:r.ent and urge immediate r.ciion. _ Dolph.

ONE THING_AND_ANOTHER. Somewhere away down in one of -the dark silent and .abysmal canyons ot: south-eastern Utah stands a -house or mamm-d-th dimensions, v.'hich has r.o: •been entered by man nor beast for live thousand years.

All ol" ihe leading- Law firms of -the city are being drawn into the contest on one sids or the other, Governor Budd 'being one of Charles Fair's special counsel. The executors specially -desired ;o secure the probation of 'the will before the contest, so Uhat they could make the fight -out of -the funds of the estate instead of personally advancing- '-he costs of -the battle. According- to -the j terms of the will any legatee making a contest is to forfeit 'his share of the estate. • Governor Altgs'id Scored.

Last year the city paid $12.50 per month each for -?5 -i'c lamps. Tht> company was .smv'tcn in ! ine regl-on of ;\s conscience on the firs; o-f the ye-ar a;;d voluntarily reduced rates ro ,$10, but this was not. sufficient, ; to satisfy 'the city fathers, who havl be-an. doing a little figuring -t-h em selves. Then the company kindly threw out its $8.50 bait and landed its fish. This is a reduction of S4. per light -wvthln six weeks, which is vory jyatif'ying, indeed, but the pesky taxpayers, who always want the osrt'h. are inqvilriny wheth-er the company intends to re:'un-a the ?1.;!,000 paid by. the city last year in excess of-the. present mtes. The orun- pany 'is not supposed to be supplyin;:; electricity at a Joss; thoro has been no reductior. of consr-quonc^ in the cost of prc'ducri'cn; yet the city paid $1000 more every of last year than i; is asked to pay now.
