The Legislature Adjourns
Austin, Sept. 10.—The legisla-
ture adjourned sine die at 10
o'clock the morning after the
penitentiary bill had been signed
by the presiding officers of both
houses and a committee notified
each houses and the Governor
that they were ready to adjourn.
To the House the Governor sent
a flattering message declaring
the body one of which the state
should be proud. A wave of
cheers swept each chamber as
the gavels fell. In the House
Speaker Marshall delivered his
farweil address, intimating that
this will probably close his offici-
al career. Many members crowd-
ed ground the speaker at the
close and congratulated him.
Both the House and Senate
came to an agreement late yes-
terday afternoon to adjourn at
10 o'clock Saturday morning.
The "bat" was retained as a

Others in cheaper grades at cheaper
punishment in the penitentiary
system, as stated in these dis-
patches yesterday, but with re-
strictions. The bill was passed
by viva voce vote finally and is
effective Jan. 20 and Mr. Colquitt
will name the board.
The bill was enrolled late last
night and was signed early this
forenoon. It now goes to Gov-
ernor Campbell and the question
whether or not be will veto the
bill has supporteis on both sides.
The Governor's Address.
Governor Campbell made an
hour and fifteen minutes' talk to
the joint session late yesterday
afternoon, reviewing his ad-
ministration, commending the
work of the Legislature and
acknowledging the debt of grati-
tude for the services "of those of
you who have upheld my hands
in the interest of the people.'
The House seemed hugely to en-
joy the speech and applauded
frequently, while the pleasure of
the senate got out of it was
Bills that Were Passed.
Spider bill, protecting laborers
who handle cotton from lacera-
tion by the ends of raged ties.
Requiring the state to pay
taxes on convict farms to coun-
ties where, in they are looated.
Car ehed bill to protect car re-
pairers from the weather.
International and Great North-
ern claims validation bill, re-
quiring the payment of unsecur-
Bill of lading bill requiring
protection and validation of cot-
ton bills of lading.
The new insurance bill super-
sedes the present fire rating board
law, creating the state insurance
board and giving it almost ad-
solute power over insurance rates
and policy forms and contracts. !
No rate shall be made effective
unless first approved by the
board, which shall make the
general basis schedules and
prescribe standard policy forms.
It permits free competition under
a maximum specific rate to be
approved by the board, though
all reductions under the maxi-
mum must be filed with the in-
surance board and transmitted to
the county clerk or to the
secretary wherever the risk
affected is located. A co-insur-
ance clause is prohibited, except
with the consent of the insured,
and it pronounoes contracts void-
ing policies on risks encumbered
by a lien.
The penitentiary reform bill.
This bill creates a penitentiary
commission which has virtual
oontrol of the penitentiary sys-
tem independent of superior
authority. It defines a policy
of humanitarian and reformation
of criminals in the management
of the penal system, and provides
for the abolition of the lease sys-
tem by Jan. 1, 1914. Corporal
punishment is restricted. The
commission has authority to
purohase lands and improve them
for working convicts. The biU
will not go into effect till Jan. 20
1911, and thus gives Mr, Colquitt
the privilege of appointing the
commissioners and inaugurating
The sweeping victory by the
democrats in Maine has alarmed
the republicans, and they fear
the House of the next congress
may be democratic, and possibly
a loss of republican strength in
The democrats carried Maine
in the election held Monday by
a good majority, eleoting the
governor, a majority in the leg-
islature and three out of the four
congressmen for the State. The
governor elect, Plaisted, is the
son of last democratic governor
of the state several years ago.
The Controler has declined to
issue retail liquor license for
Amarillo on the result of the re-
cent election in Potter county in
which the antis won, holding the
election void. He bases his rul-
ing on the opinion of the Attor-
ney General that no local option
election could be ordered in Pot-
ter county until the result of the
election held in 1907 had been
finally thrashed out in the courts
