Measures of no special importance wore advanced, and in both a bill was atroduced providing for the estab- ishuient of public libraries in cities, illagcs and towns, and to levy a tax or the same. In the House the Senate Lord- 3cully-alicn-Iand-blll was reported ud an effort mado to send it to a oinraitteo. This failed and it wont o a second reading. This bill is irailar to that lately passed by the louse, and the fact has been clevol- ped since that action that there is uuoh opposition to the measure and t !H not at all certain that tho pro- posed measure, upon this subject will become a jaw. ''By tho constitutional lawyerV of the Legislature it is held to bo unconstitutional legislation.' To-morrow, or on Wcdnesdayt Senator Hogan will call up in the Senate the house bill prohibiting the plnying of base ball on Sunday. There will, probably, be quite a lively ;fight over this measure, the Cook county members in particular seeming to have acquired'an' antipathy to it stnee'their return from a visit to their sport-loving constituents. It will be remembered that this bill was once defeated in the House, but under a revulsion of feeling was fished out and passed. The Senators opposing the bill claim this change of feeling was due to cowardice; that some members of the lower house influenced their fellows by alleging that the bill could not pass the Senate anywayjand requesting that they saddle the responsibility of its defeat upon that body. There is some doubt as to which is the proper committee to refer the bill to, and a facetious individual suggested that it go to the committee on strikes. "•;• Soon Have Died.
