Sandusky Star Journal, The (Newspaper) - February 21, 1911, Sandusky, Ohio LAST THE SANDUSRY STAR-JOURNAL. FORTY-FOURTH YEAR SANDUSKY, OHIO, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1911 NUMBER DEAN BILL IS UP IN HOUSE; LOOKED LIKE ALMOST ATIE THE WEATHER Fate of Measure Strongly Urged by and Which Pass- ed the House, Hung In The Balance. Both Sides Professed Confidence and Counted On Enougli uotes To Win The Most Exciting Contest of The Session Thus Far. BULLETIN COLUMBUS, O., Feb. the Dean bill was taken up In the house at 2 o'clock this afternoon, both sides were claiming the victory. Indications were that the debate would be protracted and that the vote would not be reached until a late hour. The latest poll gave the "wets" 61 votes, the "drys" 51, and doubtful 7, but the 61 for the bill included Billlngslea and one or two others who were absent and Speaker Vining who, it was said, would not vote. At a late hour it looked as though the bill would pass, although Wayne B, Wheeler still maintained a confident air. Nothing was dons with the Stockwell bill in the senate this morning and the attitude of the Cleveland representatives on the Dean bill remained in doubt to the last. One hundred and sixteen members answered to their names on the call of the house, the absentees being Canty of Hocking and Billingslea of Butler. Both are "wet." Friends say Canty will arrive before Vie vote Is taken. Alexander, of Cincinnati, opened for Dear Mil and Guard, of Champaign, replied. would be used and the "drys" had de- tectives at work. They especially watched the room of one "wet" lobby- ist. Never before had the "drys" pre- pared for a vote as for the Dean bill test. Wayne B. Whpali-r AnH-Salnnn COLUMBUS, O., Feb. fuse to make any kind oC a deal for support of the Dean bill In the house' said Senator Dean. "I stand pat and the members of the house can do the Dean bill just what they please. I regard the log rolling sys tern of passing bills as- little better thaa bribery. It is offering improper Inducements to_ members for_ their votes." Senator Dean refused to make any prediction as to the fate of his bil in the house where it came up as a special order this afternoon. A long debate seemed likely and it was hard- ly expected to reach a vote before 5 p. m. The If they find that it is likely to have rough sledding as seems likely now, will move to amend'by exempting from it. This the "drys" will oppose as they want the bill presented to the members m as objectionable form as possible. It looked this afternoon as if the Cuyahoga democrats held the key to the situation and could block the pas- sage of the bill or possibly send it to the- foot of the calendar and hold it as a club to force the passage of the Stockwell bill. Both sides declared the Cleveland men were bluffing and that all but one would surely vote for the bill. There were rumors that money league superintendent, decla-ed sev- eral weeks ago that money would be CEOSSES CONTINENT TO GET PHYSICIAN tonight and snow flurries' near the lake. Continued cold.

He has since re-! peated that assertion many times, but never has given any reason for this charge or the ground on which his suspicion is based. Fireworks were expected in the debate. The "drys" were determined to force action, confident in the ability to kill the bill. The "dry" -polls gave about fifty-seven votes for the bill, while the "wet" polls showed a bare majority over the necessary sixty votes. Strong democratic pressure was ex- erted to kill the bill and save the party from embarassment. Smith o Butler, one of the strong but a stronger democrat, was reported as doubtful on this ground. Mayor Wai lace D. Yaplc of Chillicothe was hero Working against the bill. He is very close to Gov. Harmon and may be appointed lieutenant governor to suc- ceed Atlee Pomerene. Baeschler ol Noble, another doubtful, is counted a- gainst the hill, but is a republican reported pledged to change his vote if that will pass the bill, hoping there- by to make trouble for the governor. From other sources there are reports that Gov. Harmon is opposed to the passage of the bill. These are dis- counted by the governor's known pur- pose to keep his hands off. The bill was sandwiched between two other measures, the Hillenkamp limiting the jurisdiction of jus- tices of the peace coming up first and the Greeves bill to allow Sunday base- jball in cities being scheduled to fol- low. An effort to take the Stockwell bill for the Oregon plan of direct election of United States senators from the senate committee on privileges and elections failed, 15 to 12. Six reac- tionary democrats were aided by ev- ery republican exceot one, MacDonald, to keep the bill in the committee. Sen- ator Dean escaped voting; being call- ed from the floor.
