Probably one reason for him giving et)cstak sp m.uch attention li the fact that only last winter Bhestak underwent iv operation for appendicitis and tho president Is solicitous as to whether the operation haa .Impared his ability as a ball player. 8hetak says Jt has not. He Insists he Is as good as he ever was and better, and that he feels no III effects whatever from the operation. In spite of his enormous stature, he Is quick and bandies himself well.

The bill' provides a highway commis sion to classify all roads and supervise road construction In every part of the state. The senate rejected the Dor n h bill as a substitute, which bill contemplated that districts should, be created for road work. 'Osteopaths ' Favor New Lnvr. It develops that the SUI1 College of Osteopathy Is In favor of a pending bill In the legislature to create a board for examination of practitioners In mechan ical therapeutics and .tp-(lcensa-iiorson3 In this science.

'It, id declared that If thla becomes the law It will largely supersede the law as to osteopath. Fight an Itinerant Merchants. It transpires that there In to bo a des perate effort on the part of marchants of 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 thejn as "bankrupt stock" or wjth. other Inducements. A bill to compel all such to pay a heavy license Is before committees and was yesterday much debated. Rep resentatives of several organlrations ap peared for the same. A peddlers' license bill wes alio discussed. ..Permit .Competitive nntes. 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 state at common points. It will perm.t the raH'ona , having the . long haul be tween ttvo competitive points to meet cno lower rate of the railroad having tne short haul. This Is possible In the stats only where there Is a shipment passing through outside territory, thus rnaxina it an Interstate shipment. Train Crew Bill Defeated. Ths bill In the senate to tlx the num ber of Persons wno snail consilium train crew for handling "an raiiroaa trains In the s.ta,te was recommended to day for. postponement. It Is a bill de signed by the railroad brakemen. It also limits the length of a freight train. It Is probable the senate will consider a bill which will place the power with the railroad commission to fix rules for the number of persons to be regarded as a train crew, after a full Investigation and hearing on tlw subject. Members do not believe the legislature has the In formation on which to act Intelligently, but that prosslbly the commission could do so. 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.
