STATE'S LAWMAKERS Review of the Week's Busi ness in Olympia. IMPORTANT MESURES DISCUSSED A Large Number of Bills Have Been In troduced In Both Houses- Balloting; for Senator. Special Correspondence. Olympia, Wash., Jan. 21, 1897. Speaker Cline proves himself to be an excellent officer and, Lieutenant- Governor Daniels bids fair to make a record in the senate. Now that the committees in both houses have been made up, legislation will be pushed in earnest. The early announcement of these committees is quite a contrast with the work of the last legislature, when many days went by waiting for their announcement. The first bill to pass the house was one carrying an appropriation of $1,000 to assist the fish hatcheries on Puget sound and the Columbia river in carry ing out their work. The emergency consisted of 9,000,000 sock-eyed salmon eggs that were in danger without this appropriation. The first senate bill to pass was one carrying an appropriation of $60,000 for legislative expenses....

WASHINGTON SOLONS Review of the Week's Busi ness in Olympia. ROUTINE IN SENATE AND HOUSE The Senatorial Situation Was the Cen ter of Interest— of the Bill* Passed. Special Correspondence. Olympia, Wash., Feb. 1. The senatorial situation has attracted the most intense interest during the past week, not only of the members of the legislature and the candidates for the coveted prize, but of the vast lobby now in the city, as well as residents of the city. The first change in the senatorial situation not already chronicled came Friday, the 22d, in the withdrawal of Clark Davis from the contest in the in terest of harmony. It was during the ballotting on this day that Representa tive Warner, of Snohomish, undertook to create a stampede for Turner by ex plaining hie vote before casting it for that gentleman. The last ballot on Friday gave Denny 26 and Turner 24. After the work of this day was over an attempt was made to hold a conference for a caucus, which ended in adopting a plan, askin...

THE STATE LAW-MILL Review of the Week's Busi ness in Olympia. ROUTINE IN SENATE AND HOUSE Now That the Senatorial right Is De- elded Both Bouses Have Settled Down to Business. There was a scene of confusion and excitement in the upper house of the Washington legislature Friday morning, when Senator Taylor, of Pierce, rose to a question of personal privilege and made a bitter speech in denunciation of the statement made by Senator Squire before the senatorial investigating com mittee, to the effect that Taylor was one of the men whom Warner claimed ■were in the combination that could be handled with money in the senatorial fight. Talyor used pretty strong lan guage in referring to Squire, and de manded the appointment of a commit tee to investigate the matter. The commitee was appointed, and, at Tay lor's request, is composed of three Re publicans of political faith opposed to that of Taylor. Most of the day in both houses was devoted to the second reading of bills, and no important ...

THE STATE CAPITAL Joint Railroad Committees Listen to Arguments. ATTORNEYS GIVEN ATTENTION Condition of the Various Railroads Set Forth by the Ablest Men Con nected Therewith. The railways had an inning before the joint railroad committees of the legislature. Some of the ablest men connected with the railways were pres ent, and all were given respectful at tention. W. W. Cotton, attorney for the Ore gon Railway & Navigation, gave the early history of his road, and the many reductions made in rates, compulsory and otherwise. Since 1889, wheat shipments had not increased to any ex tent from Portland and Sound points, he said, but new roads had divided up the freight haul. The reductions in rates from 1887 to 1893 would have paid the fixed charges of the old in debtedness, which amounted to $1, --800,000. Stock, once worth $1 a share, he said, is now selling for 13 cents. The present bonds bear only 4 per cent, and the present bondholders' debt is only $17,500 a mile, and on this t...
