Th'; Land Forfeiture bill was taken up as unfinished business, and was discussed for some rane; but without action went over. After a abort executive session the Senate adjourned. Cummings moved to increase the of House cloik room" luen from WOO to per year, and this led to a long dis- cussion of the labor quest on. When the clause in the tegislathe, Executive and Judicial Ap- propriation bill appropriating salaries for the Cml Service Commission was reached Mr. Cummings made the po jit. of order that it was hot properly in the bill. The commission was neither legislative, executive or jud'cial.

Mr. Dorscy's amendment was ruled out. Mr. Houk. of Tennessee, moved to strike out the entire civil service clause. A long discussion ensued, the motion to strike out was lost and the House adjourned.
