Dies in House
Austin, Texas, March 1.—The so-
called “monkey bill,” prohibiting the
teaching of evolution “as a fact” in
the public schools, was killed by the
House Friday by a vote of 59 to 50.
No word was spoken for or against
the measure before the vote was tak-
en, discussion being cut off by the
fact that the previous Question had
been ordered on the hill when it was
up several days ago.
When the vote was being taken at
that time, lack of a quorum developed.
The bill received a favorable vote,
bill the quorum shortage prevented
the vote' from counting. Coming up
as pending business Friday, the
House therefore merely took another
vote on engrossment of the bill, with
disastrous results for its proponents.
The Rev. J. W. Harper of Mount
Pleasant, one of the authors, was
presented with a box containing a
toy monkey on an elastic string after
the vote had been announced. Mr.
Harper walked about showing his
present to his colleagues and’ intend-
ed to speak on a point of personal
privilege. "The House recessed for a
night session, however, before he had
an opportunity to be recognized.
