Honse BlUs la tho
(From a 8taff Correspondent.)
DE8 MOINES, Msrch 8. (Special.) A
little Inquiry Into what the legislature has
done up to the present recess discloses
that the session thus far has been a profit
able one and that the time has been well
occupied. The legislature has been In ses
sion just thirty-seven days' actual time,
and In that time thirty-three bills have
be?n passed by both houses and sent to
the governor and everyone of them - has
been signed. . But In addition forty-nine
bills have passed the house and are now
pending In the senate and twenty-nine bills
have passed the senate and are now pend
ing In the house. About fifty or sixty
bills have been Indefinitely postponed in
each house. Put in tabular form It Is some
thing like this:
House bills Introduced.. 2R8
Senate bills Introduced ...269
Hills passed and , signed... ...33
Bills killed (about) 1 100
Paarfed house, pending In senate 49
Passed senate, pending In house 29
In the thirty-three bills which have been
passed by both houses and signed by the
governor there are some few legalising
acts and bills of only local Importance to
various comrhunltles, but there are also
the following bills of state Importance:
The bill providing for railroad commis
sioners' maps; Increasing the salary of the
insurance actuary; allowing fraternal ao-
cldent associations to do business In the
state; defining the term mlsbranded as ap
plied to pure rooos; presrrioing the Invest
ments of fraternal beneficiary Insurance
companies;. directing the preparation of the
supplement of the eode; allowing police
matrons appointed In special charter cities;
providing for the transportation of dead
bodies; the Z-cent fare bill.
Of the important bills that have passed
the senate and are ponding in the house
there is the bill by Senator Hughes pro
vidlng that a pass In a Juror's pocket Is
grounds for challenge for cause; provld
ing for pure paints and oils, prohibiting
corporations contributing to political cam
palgns; providing for the examining and
licensing of graduate nurses; amending the
Juvenile court law so as to allow super
visors and cities to erect detention homes
appropriating tfl.OOO for the railroad com
mission for extra help for Investigating
freight rates. -
Of those that have passed the house and
are pending In the senate there Is the
bill fixing minimum rates for fraternal in
eurance companies; the Do ran minimum
speed limit" st6ck train bill; Mars ton's bill
limiting the hours of continuous employ
ment of railroad trainmen; OffllVs fire
cracker bill; rirdvld'lhg state aid for county
agricultural ' societies; providing a means
for drawing Juries In cases of emergency
when for arly cause a legal Jury cannot
be drawn from'the regular lists; requiring
employment offices to make reports to the'
state labor corrlmlssloner; increasing the
amount of supdeirf; 'to the county teachers'
Institutes; pr6y1djrig for, the. investment of
the' funds of fotliirance companies ' other
than life.
Anyone familiar, with legislation knows
that the showing so far as the number of
bills passed Is concerned comes late In the
session. The fjrst part of every session
is taken up quite largely , in committee
meeting hearings, in visitations to the In
stitutions, and the first week practically Is
given over to organising. and the tnaugura
tlon. Following that for a time only bills
of minor importance are passed, because
the flme Is quite largely" given up to com
mittee hearings In which the members
seek to study the various subjects presented
for legislation, i Furthermore, after a bill
has passed one house, with Its committee
hearings. It Is nearly always necessary for
It to go through the process of committee
hearings in the other house.
With twenty-nine bills passed by the
senate and pending In the house, and forty'
nine passed by the house and pending in
the senate, the prospects are bright for
a number of Important bills to meet their
final test within the next week or two.
On the house calendar ready to be acted
upon as soon as the legislature reconvenes
are twenty-nine bills. Including the Smith
wife desertion bill, the Peterson bill pro
hibiting corporations contributing to po
litical campaigns, the bill to license grad
uate nurses and the bill providing for pure
drugs and oils... On the senate calendar
are thirty-nine bills. Including the bill pro
hibiting combinations for controlling the
price of grain and the bill providing for
pure seeds.
Warehoaso Receipts Negotiable.
a. Din introduced in both the house and
senate last Thursday sees to make the
warehouse receipt for grain or goods ne
gotiable paper Just as the certificate of
deposit of a bank ia negotiable. It Is an
Interesting looking bill, wrth all the ap
pearance of needing a Philadelphia lawyer
to explain its provisions, but It ha back
of It more big Influences demanding Its
enactment than any other bill that has been
Introduced at this session. It is backed by
the American Bar association, which drew
it; by the American Bankers' association,
by the American Warehoua association and
by Chief Justice Emlln McClaln of the
Iowa supreme court and H. O. Weaver.
both of whom are members of the uniform
laws commission appointed by the governors
of the various state, the Iowa members
being appointed by Governor Cummins.

Its passage, bnt especially the warehouse
and bankers' associations. The uniform
state laws commission has been solicited
to take an interest in the bill, and through
this commission the bill Is being- presented
to the legislature in every state In the
'union that meets this year. The other
states will get the bill as fast as their
legislatures meet. The bill has been ex
amlned by the ablest lawyers of Iowa,
and If endorsements count for anything,
this bill ought to pass.
It Is argued by those supporting ths bill
that when goods are deposited at a ware
house they ought to be a source of busi
ness negotiation without the goods them
selves having to change hands, in lust
the same sense that when gold and silver
is deposited at a bank the certificate or
receipt becomes a negotiable paper and can
be used In business transactions without
the gold and silver changing hands each
time. The warehouse men's Interest is
easily discernible. The bankers' Interest
Is due to the fact that banks could put
their money to remunerative use in taking
up negotiable warehouse receipts if ths
business is legitimate, and If they knew
they were protected. Furthermore, man
ufacturers snd jobbers will not store goods
In this state now because when stored In
other states if the necessities of business
demsnd they can quickly turn their ware
house receipt Into cash while they cannot
do so In Iowa. If the law was In operation
here It Is claimed there would be enormous
warehouses built In this state such as are
now standing In other states.

siderea likely that tne legislature will take
some action looking towards agricultural
education preparatory to the state college.
