Mr. Turpte made an extended argument la which he defended the right of aliens to vote in Montana. Hie Montana case was then laid aside and Mr. Hale called up the Chinese Cen- sus Enumeration bill. Mr. Hearst said that his idea and notion of legislation on the subject was the passage of b law that would exclude Chinese from coming to the country after a cer- tain date, but mould treat the Chinese already here fairly.

DJETAOIT, English syndicate headed by Seaton Karr, of Liverpool, a year ago bought out the Detroit brewing establishments of A. Jacob Mann, Anton Miehen- felder and Charles Endross, paying 000 therefor. Negotiations were pro- longed on the refusal of the Detroiters to take their share of the securities, but the Englishmen were so persistent that they finally paid cash to two brewers. The business failed to bear out the audit and the prospectus and yesterday the English holders sold out the four breweries to a Detroit syndicate com- posed of the local directors of the con- cern and the original owners. The English investors sell oui at a heavy loss, the loss being sufficient, it is reported, to make the investment in the common stock of the English cor- poration a total loss.

The proposition was supported by most of the rural members on the ground that the farming community, because of short crops nnd conse- quent heavy mortgages, needed relief in this direction. The opposition irom the city mem- bers was bnsed on the ground that interest, like other maters, is regulated by supply and de- mand, and they held that the lender would get such interest as circumstances compelled bor- rowers to pay, and to this extent it would be an inducement to evade the law. The bill wax finally defeated. Bills passed: Amending the compulsory education law so us to provide that children shall be started to school the first four weeks of the school year; that all youth of school age living apart from their parents shall be entitled to free schooling, and making mand- atory on boards of education to furnish books to pupils of indigent parents; to so amend the law of February 2i, 1899, that county commissioners may fence, care for and improve abandoned burial grounds inside corporate limits; appro- priating to pay deficiencies. Mr. Mal- lon's joint resolution to provide for a joint com- mittee consisting of four Representatives and three Senators, whose duty it shall be to pre- pare a uniform system of municipal govern- ment for the cities of the State, came up. It was amended in committee so as to provide that the commission should not travel be- yond the borders of the State, un- less the members bear their own expenses. Mr. Pudney. author of the first resolution on the subject, which provided that the Governor ap- point a commission, was ready to join with Mr. Mallon in a movement that will result in stopping the interminable ripping up of the municipal governments of the Strte. Mr. Bra- man offered an amendment providing for a non- partisan commission consisting of four persons, to be appointed by the Governor and Secretary of State. Speaker Hysell took the lloor and made a stiring argument in favor of the amend- ment and resolution. Mr. Hodge spoke in favor of the resolution, it-the most im- portant question that had come before the Leg- islature, und Mr. Geyer followed in the same strain. Messrs. Green, of Cuyuhoga; Nolaii, of Hamilton: Belville, of Montgomery, and Heft- Her. of Franklin. eTpressed doubt as to the ability of any commission to prepare a uniform system of government. An amendment was offered by Air. Belville to strike out the Secre- tary of State and leave the appointing power with, the Governor. THE STORM'S RAVAGES. r. VBC av "t t. a-fx: T.
