Mr. Allen of Van Biiren offered an amendment prd* viding that when the executive council failed to approve the articles of In' corporation of a loan and building as* sociation the association could appeal to the district court of Polk county, The amendment also provided that any member of the executive council who is an officer in a loan and building association should be prohibited from sitting as a member of the council while examining articles .of incorporation. The amendment was due to the fact that Auditor McCarthy is president of a loan and building association and some of the associations have objected to his' so acting! While the Allen amendment was pending Mr. Lambert, SEMM.OOA1. NEWS UOTES, Judge Thomas got after the longstanding and mueh-dooketted cases at Spencer last week and notified the attorneys that unless they were brought to trial at once he Would order them struck off at plaintiff's cost.

Jaokman, secretary of the Iowa Savings and Loan association, Auditor McCarthy's company. Mr. Jackman's letter was addressed to officers of other loan and building associations in the state accounting for the money which they had subscribed to assist in promoting the passage of the law that was enacted a year ago. The associations had contributed from $26 to $400 each, making an aggregate of $2,395. It seems that Mr. Jackman and dr. George A. Quimby had been placed in charge of this legislation. Ylr. Jackman in his letter claimed to i.ave been instrumental in securing a speaker favorable to building and loan egislation, and .set up other claims as to what he had accomplished by the .obbyists. In his itemized expend- :tures he does not claim to have paid one dollar to any member of the legislature. The letter was read under peculiar circumstances; Mr. Lambert said he simply desired to promote .the passage of the amendment by criticis- ing Auditor McCarthy, whose company had contributed .$400 to the campaign fund. Speaker Byers, feeling that he had been reflected upon by Mr. Jackman's letter, demanded the fullest investigation, announcing that he was ready to resign pending the • investigation. He also introduced a resolution calling for an investigating committee of three from the house and three from the senate. The resolution was adopted and a committee consisting of the following was later on appointed: Sena- 'he be nominated we predict that every- Langdbn & Hudsotjiji O . •":•.•*' "&fM body in this locality would forget politics and vote for By an."

The general opinion in regard to this entire loan and building affair is ihat Jackman found that he had a soft snap as a lobbyist a year ago and also 'ound that he could make it appear to the other companies that it was necessary to contribute to maintain a lobby. It seems that on the 15th of March, this year, he sent out another letter to the other companies of the state asking them to contribute to a fund to maintain a lobby to beat that section of the senate revenue bill taxing loan and building associations. The only effect of the Jaokman explosions will be to cause that particular section of the revenue bill attacked to go through the house without even a show of opposition. -h *h -f" The senate revenue .bill, on which Senator Funk's ways and means committee has worked. for many weeks, passed the senate on Friday. The bill was not particularly changed by'amend ment, certainly not to its detriment. Senators best informed as to the scope of the measure firmly .believe that under its provisions there will be no cause for complaint on the part of those who fairly pay their taxes. Appro- tension on &e part of farmers and others who are now taxed enough is without foundation, The attempt to arouse opposition in this direction is clearly the result of misinformation or a desire to use farmers' influence to selfish ends, WWle exactjustioe payer ia s apd never will be 'flope ip the statutes iu relatiop *° 1 . r fy? n " e A * are groupds for ibe bejie.1 that the that has just passed the penate is the 'airest that ever passed ap Iowa legis-, iature, While it demapds proper COR- rib'utiop to the expepses of goverp- ^fr^moa^JWw^tt.lJLPS* intended to J.E.
