The committee appointed to in* vestlgate and ascertain whether or not the loan and building lobby had anything to do with the nomination of Speaker Byers a year ago, reported, saying that such lobby had had no influence in the matter whatever, and the report was unanimously adopted, The committee criticised Oce B.

In fact, two reports have been filed, one by the majority, composed of Lambert, Smith and Jay, and one by the minority, composed of Temple and Brant. The majority reports that the prices paid for state job printing, such as the bar docket, etc., have been too high. The committee also finds that the state binder has been binding the-"half sheep" binding In "skiver." The minority, In an extended report, charges unfairness on the part of the majority In the investigation, saying that Mr. Lambert evidently desired evidence on one side only The minority also alleges that the state binder has used as good leather as any former state binder, and of exactly the same name and quality. The minority report that ''skiver" has been used for so-called "half sheep" binding for thirty years and that the code of 1873 was bound in It It Is expected that these two reports will come up for consideration today. Just what will be the tactics ol both sides remains to be seen. The minority report was not presented until Saturday noon, and no action was taken because Mr. Lambert had gone home. The minority say in their report that Mr. Lambert exaggerated the amount paid the printer and binder for the year 1895 more than $46,000. The fight will evidently be a warm one. The senate bill, which has already passed, regulates everything complained of in both the house reports, and as it is in the house committee on nrinting it may receive consideration In connection with the reports herein referred to. The Lambert committee does not recommend the contract system, though citing the low prices paid N. J.

The custody of school books in counties having county uniformity is given to the county superintendent as being more in his line than the county auditor, who now bandies them, A great deal of local disturbance in school work will be avoided by the removal of all doubt .as to the length of time a re-adoption is for. When a book is adopted by the .school board in the first place there is no doubt but that it is adopted for a term of five years, but the law was not clear as to how long the re-adoption should be for, and Attorney General Remley held that it might be for one year, or such time as the board saw lit. Intention of the legislature was i un| doubtedly that all contracts should be for five years, and the law has been made clear to that effect.

The giving of a local bond is always a stumbling block to any outside bidder, especially so to one not well known in the locality. The law has been changed so that school boards are compelled to accept bonds of an authorized surety company, that is, one that has made the required deposit of securities with the auditor of state and is authorized by him to do business in the state. The house has passed the election bill with the anti-fusion feature. So hereafter, no matter haw many nomlna- Sons a man may get, his name will be on the ticket but once, the theory being that the intelligent voter could ask nothing more than to have the name of 1 his candidate printed in large type on the ballot in one place to enable him to vote as he pleases. •i- -5" -H Both houses have Agreed; fixing the salaries of railway commissioners at $2 300, The salary has formerly been $3^000. .
