LEGISLATIVE WORK ABOIIT DOME, State 'Wili Pritot 7,OOO Cofcles of the Hew Code, Annotated—Other Legislative Matters. DBS MOINES, Iowa, April'27,—Both branches of the general assembly have now passed the bill authorizing the annotation and publication of the code* The house made a few amendments, but the bill is not materially changed -AT- before the committee. All the witnesses have practically agreed that some of the charges on the part of the state printer for certain blanks have been too high, though lawful, but no fault has yet been found with the work of the state binder. All witnesses have agreed that "skivered" sheepskin has been used on the -state work for more than twenty years where the leather is only on the backs of books and the corners. All of the witnesses have testified to the reasonableness of the state binder's prices, and I give it as my unbiased opinion that the printers and binders of the state will be sur< prised to learn that the book binding done by the state is being done at New.

Chancellor McClain of the state university, who has been issuing annotated codes for a number of years, finally made a proposition to the state to issue this new volume and furnish the state 7,000 copies for the sum of 520,000; the general public to pay $5 per volume. The McClain code has heretoforecost$ll per volume. A number of lawyers in the house did not believe the state could get out as good a code as the McClain document, therefore they supported the substitute offered by Mr. Mayne of Kossuth, substituting the McClnin bill for the committee bill. Mr. Mayne made a strong speech in favor of giving the work to Chancellor McClain. He was supported in his position by Messrs. Temple, Punk and others. The bill to print the code in Iowa was championed by Messrs. Dowell, Hayes, Evans, Clark, the two Morrisons, Crow, Brighton and others. These gentlemen made strong speeches in the interest of home manufacture. Judge Hayes offered an amendmant by which the expense of annotation should not exceed $7,600. Various other useful amendments were added, and as a result a good bill was perfected, which finally passed the house by a vote of 58 for to 23 against. The first test in regard to the bill was brought about by a motion made by Mi-. Tibbits of Bremer to let the printing and binding to the lowest bidder. This proposition was defeated by a vote of 71 to 19. It was brought out In the debate that the price named in the bill for doing the printing and binding was a competitive price and that it was lower than the written bid placed before the code committee by Messrs. Clarkson Bros. The code is required to be out by the 1st of October, at which time it goes into effect. Some of the democrats wanted to postpone the date of taking effect until the 1st of December, but this did not prevail. This new code will consist of 2,000 pages or more, and in addition to the*laws of Iowa will contain a comprehensive statement of the decisions of the courts placing intepreta- tions upon laws, hence the word, "annotated." The code of 1873, the reader will remember, was a plain book, simply containing the laws. It cost more than the proposed annotated code will cost. The state will save enough on the printing and binding to pay for the "annotation." An editor will be selected by a legislative supervising committee. The same committee will select the annotators and clerks, and it is presumed the work will be done in the committee rooms of the house end of the capitol building. It is to be sold to the general public at not more than $5 per volume, and it is believed the state will not only get all her money back, but will make $50,000 on the job. -7- -i- -fr- it is difficult to predict the date of adjournment. Although the revenue bill has passed both houses there are disagreements as to amendments which must be harmonized before that important measure is ready for enrollment. The Cheshire-Early amendment in regard to taxing telegraph, telephone, express and sleeping car companies passed the house afier having failed in the senate. This brings the matter before the senate again, and several hearings have been held before the senate ways and means committee, some of whose members think that the amendment is a little out of harmony with the general plan of their bill, etc, The revenue bill must be finished this week. •*-•*•-*The bill permitting the manufacture of liquors In Iowa has now passed both houses in the same form and will be a part of the code. Briefly stated, the bill provides for permitting the manufacture under the same requirements that now must be complied with by saloons. As the bill passed the senate the saloonkeepers could collect a liquor bill by law. The house changed that so that the wholesale liquor dealer can collect by law from ttje saloonkeeper, but the saloonkeeper can not collect from an individual. It was brought out in debate by Representative Funk that personal bar bills can not be ool- much less rates than are paid for commercial binding anywhere in the state. Only on a few jobs has the printer's price been too high and on these jobs the printer would not more than make up for the printing of the journals and other work requiring plain type setting when the work has to be done at night, the night wage scale being higher than the price for day work. •*••+••*• The work of the session seems to be practically done, and certain It is that It can be completed within the next few days. The work of enrollment is in progress and is more than half done The enrolled bill is the perfected law ready to be placed on file with the sec- rotary of state to become a part of the code • LAFE YOUNG. TRY IT. AMONG THE ADYEETISERS. A. D. McGregor was at Wesley Saturday embalming a corpse for shipment. Kraft sold 29 hats one day last week. His opening Saturday was a big day for him. The Call pasture south of town is the stand-by of our town dairymen and is now ready for cows. Roscoe Call has it In charge. Ed. and Lew Huckman are making a handsome black walnut desk for the sheriff's office. It is one of the neatest jobs we haye seen. Spratt, the horse buyer, gave B. M. Gardner $100 for a five-year-old Saturday. That is more like it. The colt was one of Exile's. The remains of the Alex. Patterson stock of goods were auctioned off last week at the old Grange store. The court ordered them sold. Jas. Taylor has a lot of kid gloves for 50 cents, and spring goods of all kinds at like prices. He has a salesman, Mr. Payne, from one of the big Des Maines stores. No two corn planter factories _ in the world turn out as many machines as the Deere factory at Moline. The Wigwam handles the Deere planters and is making a specialty of them this season. Howard Robinson was in Chicago a week ago looking up new hardware for the spring trade. He says the Peninsular Stove company told him the business prospect was as good with them as they could ask. Trade is picking up. Hugh Black believes the time for horses has come again. Last month he went to Janesville, Wls., and bought a fine Clydesdale and now has him on his farm In Irvington. Mr. Black knows a good horse when he sees him, and says that this is a good one. BETAN OAH'T GOME. The Spirit Lakers Can't Get Him for n Joint Debute at Their Chautauqua. Senator Funk tells the Estherville Vindicator that he will not be able to get Mr. Bryan to the Chautauqua. Mr. Bryan was at flrst very anxions to come and deliver a political lecture. When it was suggested that both sides should be presented and Mr. Bryan was asked to participate In a joint debate with some able republican speaker, he respectfully replied that he would not be in the state at that time and it would be impossible for him to attend the Chautauqua.

J H-" -J- •+One of the sharpest debates so far had in the senate came up on a proposition, which had passed the house, in regard to taxing railroad tracks *nside of incorporated towns where such tracks run through tracts of ground of ten acres or more that are taxed as farm lands and not as town lots. The railway people thought that if the land were taxed as if they were out in the country the railroads ought to be taxed as if they were out in the country, The senate agreed with, the railroads one day, and upon reconsideration went back on the railroads the next day. The fight against the railroads wa s led by Senator Healy, who made a strong speech in support of his position, quoting facts and figures from tlje records showing the taxation methods of the past, This bill will now go back to the house for consideration, it having passed that body by a very Urge majority. 11 * -t- -h •*• The house committee on printing continues to put in the afternoon waking inquiries ia regard to printing ana binding, Severalo! the'Des Moines employing prints? 8 - W* hinders, have bfen WPM tip committee as witnesses, LEGAL NOTICES, ^N - X>%X>-^-^V.^ 1 -^-^-^-^^^-^^^^^ V -^>^ ADMINISTRATION NOTICE.
