Having put behind them the general revenue bill as permanent law to meet the next biennium's $62,000,000 budget, both houses of the legislature met Friday afternoon and adjourned until 2 p. rn. Monday, because of the death of Delegate Ben H. Butcher. Friday's calendar will be considered on Monday. The tax measure, minus the bread and milk exemptions oil purchases up to 25 cents, was repassed by the house of delegates at 6; 15 p. rn. Thursday after a spirited debate, led by Floor Leader W. M LaFon, in favor of tile senate's decision to abandon exemptions, because to allow them would throw budget estimates out of balance and would, he said, endanger the future success of the consumers sales tax. The appearance of the measure on the house floor was a .signal for renewal of the wrangle of Wednesday, in w hich the delegates insisted that bread and milk be exempted. Delegate George W.
