The Cann Drug Co., CORNER 2d VIRGINIA STS Leading DrggiSts ASSEMBLY THIRTEENTH DAY Speaker Wilson called the Assembly to order shortly after 10 o'clock and prayer was offered by the Rev. Mr. Darneille, who will act as Chaplain during this week. Mr. No ten are, who has been absent 09 account of illness, answered to roll call, after the calling of which the following business was transacted: Speaker Wilson, by request, Intro- duced a petition from 667 residents of Elko county asking this legislature to pass a local option law. Mr. Syphus, of Lincoln, announced that at some future date he would In- troduce a bill amending sections IS, 28, 1, 5 and 7 of the act relating to the maintenance and support of pub- lic schools. Mr. McCarran, of Washoe, gave notice that he would Introduce a bill to authorize county treasurers to place county funds in banks upon open accounts, with certain restrictions. Assembly Bill, No. 20: Denton, of amend the act to regulate the settlement of the estates of de- ceased persons. Judiciary. Assembly BH1, No. 21: Syphus, of define the liabilities of employers for injury or death sustain- ed by their Referred to the Judiciary Committee. Senate Bill. No. ciency appropriation bill. Referred to Waye and Means Committee. Assembly Bill, No. 28: Wilson, by regulate the sale of in- toxicating liquors by local option. Re- ferred to the Committee, on Public Morals. Assembly Bill, No. 1, by Speaker Wilson, being brought up, caused quite a debate. This bill provides that sheep shall not be herded or grazed upon any possessory claim, or within two miles of the home of the owner of said pos- sessory claim. McCarran, of Washoe, moved to amend by adding that nothing In the act should be 'construed to mean that sheep could not be driven to water, when said water on public do- amendment led to a lot of discussion, and was finally lost by a vote of 13 to 16. Vaughan, of Lincoln, moved an amendment which provided that noth- ing in the proposed law should be regarded as meaning that the owner of sheep could not graze the same up- on his own land. Lothrop, of Esmeralda, moved to lay the amendment upon the table. Motion lost by a vote of 12 to 17, and another lengthy discussion ensued McCarran moved that the bill be made a special order for Wednesday afternoon. Motion declared out of order. Vaughan's amendment was lost by a vote of 13 to 10. Lothrop moved to make the bill a special order for Friday afternoon. Motion lost. Cooke offered an amendment more closely defining the method of civil procedure in case suit was to be brought against the owner of the land. Amendment lost by 11 to II. Holmes moved previous question, and the bill passed by a vote of 21 to 11. Noteware changed vote to the affirmative and gave notice that he would move for a reconsideration. Whltacre rose to a point of order that it required two-thirds to carry previous question, and that therefore the bill had not been passed. Chair ruled that portion of point of order was well taken but vital part was not. Assembly took -a. recess until after- noon to take up special order upon veto message of the Governor. Afternoon Section Two resolutions of no particular im- portance followed the routine business after the opening. A lively brush occurred when the eight-hour law bill came up for dis- cussion and was passed and will probably pass the Senate. McCarran attempted to put on a rider to the effect that the employer and employe could make a contract for so much per hour over-time, bat the proposition was strosgly opposed, be- ing strongly fought by Skaggs and voted down. McCarran then offered substitute in which he proposes that the employe be allowed double time for all over-time, which had the same fate as the amendment, and the bill passed as originally Introduced. i W.
