The Kauas Legislature has been working hard since  oavening about three weeks ago, The new gover- nor has sigued seven bills, but there are already 630 bills before the house. Committees have killed 1'22 measures and the house has passed fifty bills. There have been 540 bills mtroduced in the senate, 144 killed by the committees and thirty passed'. In the three weeks the fol- lowing administratiou measures have been redeemed: Ratification of the amendment to the constitution of the United States providing for popular election of United States senators. tonsolidation of Imreau of labor, bureau of mines and free employ- ment bureau into one department. Abolishing eightenn regents of throe educational institutions and their numerous branches and putting restitutions under one board of tiree members. Also changing blind and deaf sehopls from charitable institu lions to educatmnal institutions. Repeal of the mheritence tax law. Only ode.administration measure has been kiUied too dead to be re- vived. That is the consitutmnal amendment to allow the state to participate in the building of good roads and bridges. The senate has blocked that by such a tremendous vote that there is no chance that an amendment of thm kmd can be adopted by the present legislature. The following shows the status of the administration measures as they were when the legislature adjourned Saturday : State publmation school textbooks and distribution at cost to children of the state.
