Were Given a Second Reading on Thursday GREAT PROGRESS Legislature Is Breaking All Records for Close Atten-tion to Work Edmonton, March 6.-Private lugis-"latioij is pcoupying tlie whole atton- tion of the Legislature.just now and the standing committees are working full time to keep up with the demand lor bills. The record ot bills taken up arid passed through or advanced during the. week would show that the present week is likely to prove one'of iho busiest ot sessions. Private bills are being advanced' rapidly. Some fourteen' bills which were considered ia standing committees this morning were taken up iii committee of the whole this afternoon, and will receive their tliird reading on Tuesday. Royal assent was given to two bills, the Alberta Ladies'.College of. Red Deer and Edmonton, Stony Plain and \Va-bamun railway.' A dozen bills received a second reading. The Bulk Sales act, which has been dorpyided by the wholesale traders of tlje'province and supported by retailers associations, has been printed and wUl come on for a second reading soon..: The act makes it the duty of oyjg^y/ppj'sp.n, buying stocks of.nicr-chandlae lin/'buik tot demand, and\,tl>; duty of' Bv^ry.jivend'or to comply witih demand forV written statements con-t^qihg names and addresses of all creditors and"-Amounts  owing - to tls It F,air? . . Special acts of the Legislature to' enable persons to practice professions in the house will be harder to obtain tain in future it indeed the Legislature docs not rule thenr out entirely. The special act to authorize James Alexander McCaftry, ot Edmonton to practice law in the'province met with a hostile reception at the hands of the Miscellaneous and Private Bills committee of the Legislature today. Hon. Malcolm McKensie raised objection to the billy which he said was going to legislate a man into a profession which other men would have to spend years in training tor. If ,the}' were going' to set up this precedent they would have everybody who had sat behind a law oiBce door applying, for a special act to enable him to become a lawyer. It was a dangerous precedent. The committee reported the bid in 'such a manner that'it is certain to be thrown out when it comes before the committoo of the whole unless fresh reasons are brought to substantiate Mr. McCaf-Iray's claim. H'on. e. R. 'Mitchell answered a numlMsr .of questions put by members of the opposition. Mine Inspectors Drr Stewart, Lethbridge, asked a number of, questions about the mining inspectors ot the province and their districts. .He was informed by Mr. Mitchell" that the province was divided into four mining districts, .Gro^ws .Nest, ,^ Lethbridge, Edmonton .and.'Calgary.'
