that the adjournment for the recess of bifurcation should occur at 11 oclock but that was Impossible Many things that should have been done had been left undone The problem of performing the Impossible confronted the lawmakers but gave them no worry They just stopped the - clock as Legislatures have done from times beyond the ken of history and solemnly carried on the blurt that the timepiece was running Whats the difference whispered a grlssled Senator to his neighbor Mostly all popular legislation is a bluff The clock might as well help out on some of It CLOCK BOLDLY LIES While that bold - faced Impostor assisted the bluff for a couple of hours by staring blankly at the solons without moving minute or hour hand the Senators wrangled over tne moss - grown legislative chestnut known as the Sutter By - pass Once more the leading spokesmen of Its advocates Senators Inman of Sacramento and Kehoe of Eureka told of the benevolent Interest of a State government as Shown In its willingness to put JJOO000 of the publio money behind the river scheme Once again the opponents denounced the project as special legislation which set a dangerous - exampleexample they said to all the Irrigation districts in the 8tate and would squeese even the very rivets out of the treasury Senator Duncan of Orovllle and Senator Dennett of Modesto proclaimed too that the farmeraflf Sutter county were having greatness thrust upon them as every man ot them objected to being helped by the State money only to have It later assessed against them Senator Inman shouted back at the wily and gray - locked debater from Orovllle and the stentorian tones of Bill Scott the feted totntmaater of the great legislative duck banquet mingled In the oratorical melee Incidentally the name of J Ogden Armour was bandied around In the vocal fracas Duncan and Dennett and Irwin of Hanford and Burkltt of Willows accrsdlted him with being the party of greatest Interest lit the bypass project The smoklng - out of furtive capital added to the liveliness of the Senatorial whirl The oratorical outburst proved to be rather a tempest In a teapot how ever for when the vote was taken there were only five noes Brtggs Duncan Harris Irwin and Purkltu DUNCIM CHAIVGHS VOTE Duncan changed his vote of no to aye and announced that he would on the next legislative day which will be February 24 give notice of reconsideration On cooling down however he withdrew his notice and let the famous by - pass legislation pass out of the forum and Into the Mkte Treasury The Senates clock shows that it Is approaching ths time for lunch said the president pro tern ot the Sennte with a knowing eye at the loafing timepiece over the main entrance Excellent Idea declared the LieutenantLieutenant - Governor who also ogled the Immovable horologe which showed no appreciation of the friendly overtures The grave and learned Senators skipped out to lunch like hungry schoolbuvs at 11 by the clock and an hour and a half later by Unofficial lime In sixty minutes they filed back snd donated regardless of the paralysed clock tha joint resolution of Assemblyman Droughton that a Joint committee ln estimate conditions of unemployment We have already appropriated leO000 for a committee of nine to do precisely the same thing declared Nealon of San Francisco and It took all the apokesmen of the ad ministration headed by Benson ot ban Jose to unhorse him In tho tilt which the clock could have shown lasted an hour If It hsd only been going When the roll was called the only Senators otlng with the econorhlst from Ssn KrancUco were Inman of Sacramento and McDonald of San Francisco Woman s Influence had keen vindicated Time Is running against us reminded the president pro tern with a smile at the clock and the LieutenantLieutenant -
