It is Thought the Carpenter Bill May Yet Pass Both Houses—Twenty-two New Laws—Notes. s New Goods Are In. DBS MOINES, March 20.—As this letter deals only with results it will bo necessarily brief this time. The liquor question occupied the attention of both houses with scarce nn interruption until Friday, when votes were reached in both houses with results that both the liquor bills were defeated on the first vote. Both bills were reconsidered and therefore both of them are again pending in then respective houses. On Friday afternoon 22 republican senators held a caucus and agreed to some modifications of the Carpenter bill, making it apply only to ale, wine and beer, and also to raise the population limit of cities which shall constitute separate election districts to 6,500 and requiring that the petition for an election shall be signed by majority of the voters of the district. A provision to prevent the establish mont of a saloon in any residence sec tion was also agreed to. With those features added many prohibition republicans believed the Carpenter bill would come as near fulfllliing the promise of the platform as any that can be devised. It is believed that the Carpenter bill, as amended by the senate republican caucus, will pass the senate and if it passes the senate it.will also pass the house. The reconsidered Martin or mulct bill is set for a, special order tomorrow at 10 o'clock. This week will doubtless see the end of the liquor debate and also the passage of some measure in substantial, fulfillment of the promise made in the thirteenth plank. If that thirteenth plank had not been adopted, prohibition would stand unchanged and undisturbed by the present general assembly. It is n. singular coincidence, that the thirteenth plank was adopted considerably through the influence of Hon. Spencer Smith of Pottawattamie county and prohibition was originally adopted in ]884 by the votes of Clayton and Davis, two anti-prohibition republicans from Pottawattamie county. Thus Pottawattamie gave and Potta- wuttamie taketh away, and some will doubtless say, blessed be the name of Pottawattamie. TWENTY-TWO LAWS. Twenty-two complete laws have been made, that number having passed both houses, been signed by the speaker of the house and president of the senate and the governor and being now on file as required by law in the office of the secretary of state. A majority of these are of very little import. Of course, your readers will remember the bill to restrain hunters, to placard oleomargarine, to prohibit the sale of cigarettes and cigars to minors under 10, to prohibit prize fighting, etc. Those are the important measures that have now become laws. Twenty-two laws in ]0 weeks would make an average of a little more than two a week. When the lust week comes, the assembly will mako a law every hour and probably more. LEGISLATIVE NOTES, The bill appropriating $20,000 to pay the debts of the Statu Agricultural Society has passed the senate and will certainly pass the house. The senate ways and means committee reports that the total amount available for special appropriations such as new buildings, new improvements, etc., is $392,547. The bill proposed by Young of Delaware, in the house for the reformation of the road system was defeated on Saturday. The senate liaa passed a bill providing for township control of the road system and cash payment for work. This will bo the extreme limit of road legislation this session. Tho senate on Saturday refused to make the Harsh revenue bill a special order, thus leaving it upon tho calendar in a position whore it will talio- a two thirds vote to take it up out of its order and whore it will never be reached unless taken up out of its order. _ This would look like the defeat of this measure BO far as the present general assembly is concerned. This result is due to tho general feeling that there is a lack of time to perfect so important a measure, which contemplates a complete revolution of assessment and taxation. Senator Lewis' bill, fixing the gross amount of state revenue required for 189S at $1,200,000 and the amount rer quired for 1890 at $1,300,000 passed tho senate and has been placed on the calendar in the house without formal reference to a committee, This is a new departure in this state. The plan heretofore has been to levy either two or two and a half mills and then to spend whatever sum that rate of taxation brought in. Senator Lewis' bill states the required amount, leaving tho per cent, of taxation to be figured accordingly. This is certainly a business way of doing business. It Is stated that under the requirements of Lewis' bill the rate of taxation for state purposes in the years 1895 and 1806 will be two and one-third mills. That sum will pay the expenses of tho stnto government, build a few buildings needed by state institutions, repair old ones and start the new insane asylum at some point in northwestern Iowa. L.
