Olympia.---\\;Vitll the end oF lhe pres- ent sessioll iu sight and several hun- dred bills remaining To lm halldled by tile eolnnlittees and reported to tile senate and house for aelion, it is ap- parent tllat many will fall b.y the way- side, for it will be a physical ilupossi- b'lity for all bills to he considered. The strain upon nleulbers is beeomiug apparent and there is going to be a grand scramble among members to I i save their pet mcasnres. [ Last week Acting Gm!ernor Hart[ took occasion to remind the senate[ I and house that for several days not a single bill  as received for executive consideration and he urged that en- rolhuent of bills passed by both houses be si)eeded up and the bills be presented for a(tention. With a total of more than 500 bills introduced and two weeks of the ses: sion remainihg, only 39 bills had reached the governor, who has only 10 days after adjournment to approve or veto, otherwise the bills automati- cally become laws. With calendars crowded daily and nothing else to do but to lass bills in both houses from now to adjourmuent, the acting gov- ernor is standing in the way of an avalanche of legislation which he can- not have time to consider. Big Appropriaticns Passed at Olympia, Tile omnibus appropriation bill. car- rying a total of $1.8,590 165, exclusive of special and revolving funds, passed the senate and went to the house on rush order, q'he house passed the ap- propriation bill with about one hour's deliberation by a vote of 85 to 2. Final apportiomnent of the general fund for biennial support of state de- partments and institutions is $7,437,- 542. exclusive of an extra allowance of $1,202.200 from the general fund for new educational buildings a the uni- versity, state college and normal schools, which largely represents the present general flHnl increase over the total of two years ago. Grace for Auto Users. The house passed senate bill 231, whictl provides the machinery for op- erating bill 139, fixing the taxes on autos, and this bill allows automobile users until the last day of March, 1929. to obtain their license plate. After this year. however, tile auto li- cense must be paid by March 1, one month of grace being necessary this year because the legislation was enact- ed Saturday, March 1. Governor Hart signed senate bill 139. fixing the auto license, and up until the very signing of the bill the auto dealers of this state tried to defeat th measure. Gov- ernor Hart received scores of tele- grams urging him not to sign the bill. The emergency clause is attached and the new license tax, on a [aetory weight basis went into effect Satur- clay. Would Give Preference to State, By senate bill 183, passccl by the senate, no l)ublic official shall pur- chase for tmblic use commo(lities .pro- duced outside the stale if similar goods produced ithin the state can be procured at no greater price. The bill carries a misdemeanor penalty. Qaarantine protection of agricultur- al crops, fruit or forest trees by tile commissioner of agriculture is pro- vided in a bill passed by the house. Increases to $7000 a year for su- preme" judges and $4000 for superior court judges was passed and sent to the acting governor. It allows $1000 a year above present salaries. Cull Apples Sale Permitted, The house, after a fight between Wenatchee and Yakima apple growers passed the Geltatly bill to permit the sale in this state of cull apples in boxes especially marked as to the low grade. The debate between Repro- sentative Sawyer of Yak]ms and Rep- resentative Gellatly of Wenatehee hung upon the technicalities of apple grading, until Gellatly's contention that thonsands of good eating apples were destroyed aunually in this state to maintain the high grade for eastern markets, aroused a discussion on the high cost of living, and the bill passed by 59 to 36. By this bill apples culled from the fancy grade and not over 5 per eent infected with moth or scab may be sold in the state markets. Yak]ms growers contended that they had built up a magnificent business in high. grade apples that would be ruined If dealers were given the opportunity to dodge inspection on outgoing fruit and snbstitute culls for fancy grade in trio eastern markets, ........................ 2. ........

The bill carries a proviso that no part of the appropriation shall be ap- plied to the purchase of a site for the home, the idea being advanced that Lhe people of the place iv which tile /lome is located will purchase the site and donate it to the state. This bill has had tile support of the women's organizations of the state. It provides a place for the incarcera- tion of delinquent women and the treatment of wenlen affl!cted with so- MO00rI00)R FOCH SAWS WOOD In the midst of the nauseating pro- German ln'opagamla that is appear- illJ conslantlv ill ()lie to] nl or another it is ,efre:Jfing to note that there h'ts been .u let up in Marshal l"och's dealings with the enemy. The Ger- man armistice commission recently requested a delay in the signing of the. armistiee terms until the follow- ing Monday noon. Foch replied that the armistice expired at 5 o'eloek Monday morning, and that 6 o'clock Sunday lffternoon was the last horn' for signing in order to give him time to move his troops in case the terms were refused by the Germans. If it was not signed by that time the Mar- shall declared the armistice terms PAGE THRE  HOW? [ I.W.W. A contributor quotes lhe recent] "If the I.

By a vote of 67 to 15 the house passed house bill 166 and it' this meaa- are passes the senate--as now seems probable the 3 per cem rebate an laxes will be abolished and the dates for (ax collections will be April 15 and November 15. No other measure has been down and out so many times as this bill. but wllen MarR Reed of Ma- son couuly was won over to its sup- port the bill took on new life and after days of nursing and amending has been passed virtually as asked for by the coumy treasurers of the state, Basseti. chairman of the committee that drew the bill, in the closing speech declared that a check up on the cost of the 3 per cent rebate to the counties of this state in 1917 sllowed a loss of $370,000. Soldiers and Sailors Benefit. Free admission of soldiers and sail- ors to the state university is provided in an amendment to house bill 104, concurred in by both ltouses. Having earlier in the session over- come a veto of syndicalism bill. the senate passed an even more rigid regl- lation in senate bill 181, introduced by the judiciary committee. Under this bill, which is aimed direclly at I. W. W. propaganda, practice or ad- vocacy of sabotage against any line of industry is made a felony, agricul- ture and stock raising being among the productive industries specifically named. Au emergency clause will car- ry the act into immediate execution ir it passes the house and is approved, of which there is apparently little doubt. Ban Anti-Government Emblems, The senate added another ctlapter to its Americanization record for this session by passing substitute senate bill 137, by tile military committee. forbidding under a felony penaly us..? or possessiou mid partlcnlarly display of banners or insignia by an organiza- tion or group declaring itself autagon. istic to or subversive of the constitu- lion or laws of the United States or the state Itself. Emblems made un- lawful tn the act are subject to search and seizure and all officers of such as- sociations are particularized as liable to penalty, tlistorical museums and flags of accredited nations alone are excepted. Rural Schools Benefited. "The barefoot school bay" found friends in the house when house bill 154 by Coleman of Ferry eounly was passed. This bill makes it mandatory for all tllird class school districts to organize into coumy units for purposes of taxation, the county auperlntendent to admhlister the fund and aid the poorer districts. Coleman showed how some districts, rich tn children, were poor in taxable property and other districts rich in taxable property had as few as three children. Legislative Brevities. Acting Governor Louis F. Hart sign- ed senate bill 109, which authorizes qualified insurance companies to write strike; riot and auto theft insurance in this state. The senate had a streak of economy when it refused to adopt a resolution asking that 5 worth (f stamps be purchased for each member of the senate The senate passed senate bill 4, by the Judiciary committee, providing for the appointment of an attorney to de- 2end actions against the county sheriff and relieving the sheriffs from liabil- ity for certain acts while in the per- formance of his duty. For years the least considered insti- tution in legislative appropriations, the state training school at Chehalis. this session received a total appropri- ation of $150,000, which includes a $60,000 provision for a gymnasium and shop. Even penny ante games, with a 10- cent limit, are made unlawful by the anti-gambling bill passed The meas- ure applies the principle of the red- light abatement law to buildin.s in which gambling games of any sort are conducted. It throws the responSibil- ity of preventing gambling on thO own- ers of the property, House bill No. 18 passed the uenate. fixing the state labor commissioner's salary at $3000 a year, an increase of $000. Factory inspectors' wages are also increased from $4 to $6 a day. By passing house bill No. 43 the senate makes theft of an automobile a felony. --M DIFFERECE IN FARES The railway fare of a discharged soldier from camp to his home is paid by the government. The traveling expenses of one private mustered ou at Camp Devens, 'Mass., amounted to $160.

NO CODDLING Piez says the coddling of labor will be discontinued now that the war is over. The r.olicy of coddling labor was wrong from the strut; the world is suffering tlte effect of that policy now. This is the kind of taffy that was fed daily to the workman: "Boys, you are the backbone of the nation; the war's issue depends on you. You are as important as the soldier, in fact more so, for you fm'- nish not only the munition of war, but also the necessities of life, and so on, ad infinitum and ad nauseum. So the boys buckled down to work, at the highest wages ever paid, and at time and a half or double time for overtime. And a long the work they have done they have carried the idea of their new importanee. This egot- ism has been cultivated and nourished bv organ]red labor leaders, until Ihe boring men, many of them, really believe that they are much better fit- ted to control the affairs of the nation and the ialustria! lift than those who now are ill charge. Until lheir self-importance is de- flated there will be nq industrial peace. We go large production through flattery and coddling, but we are now paying the pmce in strikes and threats of revolution, FRANCE STARTS AERIAL MAIL Paris, Feb. 26.---Aerial and mail service between Paris and other im- portan French cities will be inau- gurated Saturday by the director of civilian aeronautics.
