Question is Yet Reached. A Few Bills Have Become Laws and ate Signed by the Governor—General Legislative Motes. i)ES MbtNES, Feb. 27.—The republican members of the senate temperance committee on Friday agreed upon what is known as the Carpenter option bill, which is a combination county and municipal Option affair, creating election districts out of counties and towns of 4,000 inhabitants and over. The license fee is fixed at $500, and it is a complicated bill with some good features. But when Senators Funk and Finn returned on Saturday the committee went all to pieces and the agreement to report the bill favorably was undone or Withdrawn. At this writing the temperance question is as far from settlement as at the opening of the session. The fact is becoming more apparent every day that the house has a prohibition majority and. any change that that body consents to must be very slight. The senate is . more liberal, but is inclined to proceed carefully. It may be possible also that, there are senators who want the honor of furnishing the bill that shall become the new liquor law; this may be causing some delay, as it did in the senate railway committee a few years ago. The long and short of it is, Senator Harsh is wedded to his mulct bill and will stand by it a while longer. Senator BroVver is in love with county option and will not forsake it until the final hour. Funk is not anxious about any particular measure, so that the state may be satisfied. The river towns are modest and cannot now be blamed for any part of the delay. They are pressing no particular bill and say that they are not hard to please. This week will be big: with fate so far as liquor legislation is concerned. Time is passing- and the inevitable hour when decisions must ba made is near at hand. Saturday closed the seventh week of the session. SIGNED BY THE GOVERNOR. The.governor has approved, signed and deposited with the secretary of state the following bills, joint resolutions and memorials: An act to amend chapter 13, acts of the twenty-first general assembly, relating to aiding the construction of highway bridges over navigable boundary rivers of the state of Iowa. An act to repeal chapter 62 of the acts of the twenty-fourth general assembly, and to provide for the publication and distribution of the report of the Iowa Academy of Sciences. An act to make valid chapter 21 of the revised ordinances of 1885, of the city of Winterset. A memorial and joint resolution relative to the construction of a canal from the Mississippi river to the Illinois riyer at Hennepin, in the state of Illinois. • A joint resolution and memorial of congress relative to a bill to limit the effect of the regulation of commerce between the several states and with foreign countries in certain cases. AN INSURANCE MEASURE. The house committee on insurance (Sessions, chairman) has favorably reported the following anti-trust bill, which would hit the spot; "If any insurance company or other corporation organized under the laws of this state or any other state or country for transacting or conducting any kind of business in this state, or any partnership or individual shall create, enter into become a member of or a party to any pool, trust, agreement, combination or confederation with any other corporation, partnership or individual to regulate or fix the rate of premium to be charged for Insurance, the price of oil, lumber, coal, grain, flour, provisions or any other commodity or article whatever; or shall create, enter into, become a member of or a party to any pool, agreement, combination or confederation to fix or limit the amount or quantity of any commodity or article to be manufactured, mined, produced or sold in this state shall be deemed guilty of a conspiracy to defraud, and be subject to indictment and punishment as provided in the next section." TO PUNISH DESERTION, Senator Finn's bill to punish deses- tion has passed the seriate, The bill provides that if any man shall without good cause desert his wife or abandon his child or children under the age of 12 years, born in or legitimatized by lawful wedlock, or adopted, and shall neglect or refuse to maintain or provide for such wife, child or children, he shall upon conviction be punished by imprisonment in the county jail not more than one year or by a fine of not less than $50 or more than $1,000, or by both such fine and imprisonment. Oral evidence of the fact of marriage shall be competent without the production of the certificate of marriage or the record thereof. The bill is an exact copy of the Missouri law upon the subject, WEGHSJjATIVE NOTES. It cost but $316.05 to inaugurate Governor Jackson, Bills of various kinds are passing one or the other house with great rapidity and the prospect is that the general legislation will evirpass that of any recent session. The introduction of hills goes bravely on. . The senate will vote on the woman suffrage resolution this week, Wednesday. The vote will he close,. It is thought that the bill giving municipal suffra ate—probabl The bill < beets icafl farmers will not grow sugar —the labor being to arduous. The petitions are generally asking for the retention of prohibition and for woman suffrage, with a considerable number asking that the "age of consent" be advanced from 13 to 18 years. The proposed new revenue law is expected to be reported from the senate in a day or two. It will not differ materially from the bill proposed by the revenue' commission. Its passage is doubtful. L.
