Fight an Itinerant Merchants.
It transpires that there In to bo a des

the state, by themsslvea and througn
commercial organisations to put an end
to Itinerant merchants who tako stocKa
of goods from place to place and 0"jr

Inducements. A bill to compel all such to

and was yesterday much debated. Rep
resentatives of several organlrations ap
peared for the same. A peddlers' license
bill wes alio discussed.

Commercial organisations of the statu
are back of a )ill to authorize railroad
conlparilcs to make a competitive rat
regardless of the distance tariff of the

Is probable the senate will consider a

the railroad commission to fix rules for
the number of persons to be regarded as

and hearing on tlw subject. Members do
not believe the legislature has the In

Seeking Compromise on Colleges.
A serious effort Is now being made to
effect a compromise of the controversy
over the state colleges and to leave the
n atter In such shape that while the ac
tion of the State Board of Kducatlon haa
not been distinctly disapproved, the
changes at the colleges Involved In their
order of last year will not be fully car
ried out. The committees have been
wrestling with the situation, but find It
hard to effect any compromise. The
enemies of the college board claim that
by reason of the .Injection of other Issues
Into the controversy they have been able
to get sufficient support for any bill
they may desire to pass.
I.ooVIdk Into rtrldae Methods.
The house committee on highways has
been making some Investigation Into tho
matter of letting of contracts for brtdgos

prices fcre exacted for brldger. The
committee has thus far been able lo
secure a very small amount of definite
Information, but will continue the probe.
