Milwaukee. Jan. 20. The Jour

Edward C. Wall, Wisconsin member
of the. Democratic national committee
lu which ho say;
It Is my belief that the doctrine of
10 to 1 Is neither a Democratic nor a
sound business proposition, but Is, In
fact, entirely opposed to both. I,
with many others, accepted tho plat
form of 1890, not because of that de
claration, but notwithstanding Hi
and atthlstlmo It seems proper for
mo to enter as I now do my protest as
a Democrat, ugalnst a repltitlon of
that mistake. I make no protest
against lite rest of tiie platform of
1890, and for Mr. Bryan, the nominee
for president at that time, I have the
vr.ry highest respect, knowing he Is a
sincere, honest and fearless man."

HOUSE FRIDAY A. M.
Roberts called up the matter of tho
resolution yesterday which Instructed
the secretary of state to distribute
certain books to tho members of tho
legislature IIo moved that tho part
which ullowcd each member ten vol
umes each of tho supremo court re
ports, which costs tho stato four dol
lars per volume, should bo rescinded.
This aroused considerable discus
sion. Curtis und Hill stated that
the cellar was Oiled with books which
wcro going to wusto and tho mem
bers might as well have them. Beach
also,, thought that tho members
might as well bo allowed to carry off
an armful or two apiece.
Roberts stated that he had
urougut mo matter up at
tho request of tho secretary of
state; that tho books had a
murket value but would bo of nor
use to anyono but a lawyer; that
other niombers would bo likely to
tako them for the purposo of selling
them for what they could got.
Whalloy bald that ho took his three
dollara per day and had voted for all
needed clerical aid, and would Iw
glad to have the session laws of 1893
and tho history of tho early
Indian wars, which had been pub
lished by the stato printer, yet ho
hardly felt that It would bo tho proper
thing to tako books for which tho
state had paid to outsldo publishers
forty dollars. If tho stato had nouso
for tho books, and they hud a market
value, it would be better to uuthorize
tho secretary of state to soil them.
The matter was referred to commlt-tce-on
Curtis bill appropriating $25,000 per
annum for the propogatlon of salmon
was reported from commutes, and at
request of Curtis was ro-referred for
umendment cutting tho appropriation

ment was adopted, and an attempt
was made to put tho bill through, but
