The printing committee. Col. M. A.
I Bates, chairman, reported yesterday
after the minority leader, Killen had
balked a plan to adjourn over Sun
day. Clark of Richardson had called
for the report which the committee
said 4 days ago it would have ready
in forty-eight hours. The matter
under consideration was whether the
house Bhould print dally the proceed
ings for distribution the next morn
ing among , the members. The com
mittee reported negatively and rec
ommended as a substitute that ten
or twelve typewritten copies be
placed on the front seats in the
chamber for the use of members
wishing to consult them. NeUleton
thought such a course useless and
wanted the printed copies. Clark
I said that the lowest bid was $50 a
day and this meant too great an ex
penditure out of the current expendi
tures appropriation. The house
thought so too.

Skeen's bill provides that precinct
assessors shall be elected by the
voters of each precinct at the fall
election. The county assessor is to
be retained. The precinct asses

only, and is eligible for office but
two terms successively. Vacancies
shall be filled by the county board
and county assessor.
