Thursday, January 24, 1901.
The legislature ia doing very lively
work and at the present rate is expected
to finish ill transactions before the end
ol the 40 days.
The army reorganisation bill lias
passed both bouses ol congress and
carries with it the anti-canteen amend
ment. When this bill passed His bouse
it was affirmed that the members were
abashed by the women present Into
pausing the anti-canteen act and that the
senate would make short work of that
part of the bill. The anti-canteen stnti
menl, however, was fully as decided in
the senate as in the house.
Queen Victoria, of Knglaud, died
Tuesday evening, January 22. Her
death was known to be certain for
several days past and the news was
hourly ei peeled. Her health lias been
very poor for the past year and she bad
also 1'iOered much from mental lapses.
The iueen wss born in 1819, was crowned
in IBM, and has reigned 03 years. She
was probably one of the best loved
sovereigns who have ever reigned in any
A republican senatorial caucus was
told at Halein Monday evening. Only
3D members were present and as it re
quires 40 fort n ajority, no action was
taken. The first ballot for senator was
was taken Tuesday. Corbett received 38
volet, McDride 10, Fulton 2, Herman 8.
The battle In the beginning ia between
Corbett and Mcllride who seem quite
evenly matched. Ex Senator Mitchell
is an unknown quantity in this election
and is expected to come strongly to the
Iront if Mcllrido shows signs of weak
ness. Fulton is a figure of some im
portance and an active candidate. Din
ger .Herman has a few votes but is nut
expected to cut large llgure. There are
a number of dark horses also In the
field. At this slags, it is not also to
guess on the result.
A new charter (or the city of Grants
1'asM, designed for presentation at the
present session of the legislature is now
being prepared for publication and
copiea will be ready (or distribution in
side ol a day or two.
A number of important changes from
the old charter have been made, among
them the following being perhaps the
moat noteworthy; property qualifica
tion (or voting bunds; sppoiutiueiit ol
police judge and city attorney by the
mayor; changing time ol city elections
from May to December; registration
and use of the Australian ballot system
In city elections ; complolur provisions
for regulating the saloon business giv
ing the council full power to "regulate
or prohibit." There is a rumor abroad
that the charter ia a prohibition mea
sure. As a matter of fact, the pro
visions in regard to saloons differ little
from our lasra alroady In force.
Another wild lumor in persistent
e'rculalion is to the effect that the

weeks ago. Those who read the charter,

arrangement represents will reuse to
wonder that it took some lime to pre

gentlemen worked absolutely without
compensation and that their lime was
well taken up with their own business,
- the criticism seems to bear a strong
flavor of ingratitude. At the very
earliest moment possible, even bctore
the work IJ fully co.npleted, the chsrlrr

that the change, should be made but
under the present charter the council
has no authority to order any change in

itself as favorable to the change as pro,
