fFrom a Staff Correspondent.)
DES MOINES, March 27'-rSpeclal.) The
house todny passed the senate Indetermi
nate sentence and reformatory bill with
some amendments uhlch were a victory
for the people at Amtmosa. There was but
one vote against the bill and that was by
Reltt of Iee county In which la located the
penitentiary at Fort Madison. Besides pro
viding for an Indeterminate sentence the
bill provides that the penitentiary at Ana
mosn shall be a reformatory for all crimi
nals from the ages of 16 to 30, and provides
for a board of parole and takes from the
legislature the power of pardoning life
criminals for first degree murder.
AS the bill came before the house It pro
vided for certain exceptions, providing that
persons guilty of certain crimes, among
them breaking and entering In ' the night,
should all go to the penitentiary at Fort
Madison. On the motion of Taul of Ana
mosa this was amended so ns to give the
court discretion In the matter.
Another provision of the bill was that
only If the penitentiary at Fort Madison
became overcrowded could the board of
control transfer the better criminals to Ana
mow. The claim was made that the peni
tentiary at Fort Madison would hold 200 or
300 more than half of the criminals of the
state and that with that provision in the
bill the board of control could never, prac
tically, transfer the better ciimlnnls to
Anamosa, so the overcrowded provision
was cut out. It Is believed the amendments
will be concurred In by the senate.
The bill Is the work of Senator Saunders
of Council Bluffs and Representative i
Holmes of Kossuth county. The bill was

Doll Day In Senate.
The senate had a routine day today. The
first matter which caused attention was an
effort to pass a bill which gives the Sta.te
Board of Medical examiners authority to
revoke a doctor's certificate on almost any
kind of complaint. Attention was called
to the fsct that the bill In its present
form might cause a great deal of in
justice and it was laid over tor two days.
The senate refused to recoil from the
governor a bill by Frudden relating to
Insurance taxes. The house had passed
it and then asked for its recall, but the
Bills passed by the senate:
Permitting cities to appropriate for the
Iowa League of Municipalities.
