Senator Carpenter introduced a resolution in the senate on Thursday to the effect that as the senate considered it impossible to finish the code at this session, the members deemed it advisable to complete the work not later than January, 1897. There was considerable discussion over the intent of the resolution and the advisability of adopting it, but it finally passed the senate by a vote of 33 to 12. The bouse has also passed it and the governor has announced that he .will call a«n extra session not later than January 19,1897. Some think it was the intention of its friends to force the governor to call an extra session by the resolution. Any- woy an extra session is sure, and the adjournment being sine die, the members have received full pay for this season's work. . ,: On Wednesday the legislature took up appropriation bills and passed the greater number of those for the state institutions.

The friends of the bill have been working bard all winter for it, but it looked for. a long time as if there would be no funds from which to make the appropriation. However the committees on appropriations decided to allow it, and it passed both bouses., The money thus far appropriated will go to buying a site and laying foundations ,fpr the hall, which, : -will be located somewhere not far from^the capitol in this city. It will be made the home of the historical collection, the Aldricb collection, and will draw very soon an immense amount of interesting and valuable historical matter and relics. * The most important of the appropriations for the state institutions are as follows: Clarindainsane hospital ..,m Mount Pleasant insane hospital 49,000 Agricultural colleg*, Ames.... 54,500 Anamosa penitentiary 66,139 Benedict home, Des Homes.... 9,200 Soldier's home, Marshalltown. 51,800 Home for blind, Knoxville 18,000 Eldora reform school 18,500 Council Bluffs school for the deaf .

In other words, there was exactly a constitutional majority against the bill. In the senate, it will be remembered, the vote was 5i2 to 28, the latter number being against the bill. The billto tax express companies one per cent, of their gross receipts passed the house on Thursday, after hard fighting. The express companies have maintained a strong lobby here all winter, and have fought this bill at every point. It was introduced by Senator Funk, and steered through the senate in good shape. In the house it was reported favorably, and when it came up Thursday a strong opposition devel- eped. The bill passed, however, by a vote of 87 to 0, after evt ry parliamentary device had been resorted to delay it so that it would die with the session. It seems safe to conclude that the soldiers' monument will be completed as originally intended. It is suggested that the few weak point about the monument might easily be lixed up and tin; rough corners that hurt some of the old soldiers be smoothed over if the monument commission should see fit to act on some of the strong hints thrown out during the discussion of the question in the legislature. The senate committee on military has provided that "victory" shall descend from her position on the monument, and Representative Crow will doubtless feel relieved if she brings the tobacco leaves down with her. There probably has not been a legislature which has adjourned with its work as well done as this one, except ing, of course, the code work which has proved such a sore eye. Very little oJ importance was left undisposed of am from the appearance of tbe members at adjournment, it would seem that they Great Carpet For 30 Days WE WILL MAKE SPECIAL PRICES ON OUR CARPETS, MATTINGS, LACE CURTAINS, DRAPERIES AND WINDOW SHADES.

This tax will raise about $55,000 a year for tbe university, The present legislature is to be credited; with a wore liberal policy toward the university than has ever been adopted by a previous assembly. . The movement for a revision of the revenue laws of the state, which is sadly needed, has been defeated once more, by reason of the short time left for its consideration. The ways and means committees of the two houses have been working bard all session on this task, and ba4 completed the drafting of a. bjji. It was made a special order in each, house a few days ago; but the low^ er body concluded afterward that it would take more time than Pould be spaje4 at the close of the session, -and reconsidered- This killed the bill for this session.
