One Result of the Legislative Session— Solons Have Adjourned to Meet Again Briefly in July. While others are talking of special bargains we also have some to offer, i Call and get our prices on Bottle Goods and Crockery. DBS MOINES, May 11.—The twenty- sixth general assembly has adjourned, having completed its work. By resolution it was agreed that a session would be held the first of July simply to adjourn finally. The July meeting will be without expense to the state in any manner whatever, and it is understood there will be no legislation. The legislature met Jan. 19 and has been more M. Z. Grove & Son. 102 E. State St. TBI/BFHONB 19. We have a beautiful ".'.v:',- line of this spring, all extra good values, selling at faithfully in session than any other that ever met in the state. It has been expensive, but much money has been arranged to be saved by changes in laws. Practically every salaried officer in the state has been given attention. The salaries of the railway commissioners, the physicians of the hospitals for the insane, and many others have been reduced. During the closing hours a joint resolution was adopted fixing the number of employes in the various state offices and designating their. salaries. By this joint resolution alone a saving will be made of $21,000 a year. When the business of the state was removed from the old to the new capital there was a great Increase in the number of employes, especially as regards janitors. Matters have gone on from year to year until it was thought necessary to make some corrections. The soldiers' monument commission was abolished and the remainder of their business turned over to the executive council. The office of oil inspector was abolished also and the assistant inspectors will report to the executive council. Some very rapid and earnest work was done in the closing hours. The joint resolution cutting down and regulating the salaries of the state house employes was prepared by Senators Carpenter and Trewin. It creat ed much commotion as might be sup posed, and will result in several worthy persons losing their jobs. The state green house is abolished, although Geo Motzger says it cost the state Jess than $100 a year to maintain it. In all wave of economy some mistakes are made The printing bill was finally agreed to in the house committee by a vote of 1 to 1. The bill reported was the senat bill with a dozen or more amendments cratio member. The committee elect* ed Senator Trewin chairman. Senator Ellis vice chairman, and Mr. Finch secretary. The general assembly elected E. C. Ebersoleof Tama county to the position of editor. The annotators have not yet been chosen.

The basis of taxation is fixed at 25 per cent. Telegraph and telephone companies are required to report to the executive council. Express and sleeping cur companies are exempt from the operation of the law, • 4- We want every woman in Algona to try a sack of Your correspondent has performed his task during this legislative session under many difficulties and has done the best he could to keep your readers posted, using as little space as possible.

The amendments were adopted and the bill passed the house without opposi tion, the vote being practically unanimous. The senate concurred in the amendments and the bill has been enrolled. The new law continues the offices of state printer and binder, but creates a new scale of prices, to becoma effective at the close- of the terms of the present incumbents. There was some sentiment in favor of putting the reduction into force at once, but when it was considered that the printer and binder had made investments with the understanding that the prices were to be a certain figure it was at once conceded that it would be unjust to make the change operative at once. With salaried persons who have no investment it would be different. The new law not only reduces the amount- of printing but also reduces the prices to a point lower than a majority of the unprejudiced witnesses testified. For plain type setting the price was cut from 50 to 48 cents per 1,000. It is understood there-has never been any profit in the plain work. It is required that the printer shall receive pay for the press work on all (kinds of jobs, but to receive no pay for type setting. As a consequence he will lose money on the verv work which has heretofore been the most profitable. The bill gives no extra pay for night work and authorizes no compensation for changes in COPV. The state binder's prices were correspondingly reduced. For the first 100 pamphlets of 16 pages or less the price was cut from $1.25 to 80 cents Cloth-bound books of 400 pages were cut from 25 to 21 cents, and cloth-bourn books under 150 pages are to be at 1 ents. Half sheep bound books of 40 ages were cut from 40 to 26 cents, session laws were cut from 11 to 10 ents. These are samples of the reduc- ionsmade. The printer and binder estimate that the new law will reduce he amount of yearly work done by joth establishments the sum of $18,000, and the reduction may be even greater than that. The senate bill reduced the )inder's gross receipts $6,500 on the basis of the work of 1895, which was the normal work of the office, $16,244. The gross receipts of the bindery under the lew law in any one year after the code work is out will be less than $9,000, and the printing and binding together after the code work is done will cost the state less than $31,000. -T- -j- -*• The following is a statement of the result of the new law in saving money for the state in clerk hire of the various state offices; NOW paid out.
