ported the bill bacfto the House and recommended its favorable action. The bill exempts all; large bookstores from paying a license tax in each county to sell peddle or vend books after the li- cense required by law lias been paid for said book store. The object of the bill seems to be to place it in the power of parents to obtain school books for their children at their own doors which they could not possibly obtain in any other way. The bill is likely to meet with quite a spirited opposition principally I am inclined to believe from those members who arc anxious to manufac- ture political capital for home consump- tion these who come under the char- acter of near or short sighted politi- cians. It is a fact well known that ma- ny parents will be induced to purchase books for their children w hen brought to their doors who would not otherwise do so. Legislation should always favor nay. stimulate parents and also the community at all times to purchase .school and other valuable book...
