(From Our Special Correspondent.] Albany, >,'. V., March 3.—The 1009 session of the lawmaking body of the Empire State bids fair to go down in history as \the legislature of little laws.\ The number of local bills in­ troduced this year has been extraor­ dinary. It seems a& though every member of both senate and assembly has been endeavoring to outdo every qther in the matter of legislating on subjects of absolutely no importance to the state at large. The preponderance of local bills has clogged the legislative wheels to a considerable** extent as regards the larger issues However, there is one valuable phase of this condition—that is, those local measures will be dis­ posed of before the important questions of general interest come up for settle­ ment Thus the minds and activities of the legislators can be concentrated on the big issues, and the chances of their intelligent consideration will be increased Root's Attitude of Importance. Probably the political topic of lead- [.ing importance at the capital is what may or may not be the significance of the attitude of Senator Elect EUhu Uoot toward Governor Hughes, direct nominations and the Republican state organization The Hughes backers claim Root, the anti-Hughes people claim Root, and others sit calmly by and smilingly say, \Mr. Root is flirting with both aides.\ Supporters of Governor Hughes say, \Mr. Root's speech at the Barnes din­ ner sounds the deathknell of the pres­ ent method of political leadership.\ William Barnes, Jr., leader of Al­ bany county, says: \I'm from Missouri You've got to show me.\ What Raines Says. of his °&',tiift ! assein lar Graded Course. 2 •am as.

V11 important 1 ill to the entire state IvJ*. that ol' \.s »tMiiiil .vnmn Artemas Ward. Jr.. of New York, providing tor an oih< In 1 primary ballot. The bill represents three years of diligent work and aims to meet the complex conditions I hat prevail in varying sections r.oM-riior Hughes recommended a measure of this de­ scription in sc\eral of his messages and it is boliexod that he will make an active campaign in favor of the Ward measure The Ward bill has for its object the /making of the conduc t of primary elec­ tions less irresponsible and informal and more c fficlal, as in the case of the general election The bill embodies some of the provisions of the old rVen- llce bill of two years ago. but has many new sections which make it rad­ ically different from thai bilC whii li Third —That thorp shnll be two form* of nomination petition, which shall U< known as \committee nomination peti­ tion\ mid \enrolled nominators' pet-t tion.\ Tlie former provides that any enrolled p-iriv voter in an election district, which is the unit of ropre soutRttou, niuj tall on four days' notlct to the enrolled voters of his political subdivision for which the ticket .Is tc. be 'nominated a committee meeting, which shall be managed in somewhat the same way. as a caucus meeting At this meeting nominations may be made and n ticket chosen by a majori­ ty of the members. The other method pro\ ides for a nomination petition which will be signed by a certain num­ ber of voters, as provided in the bill, the unit of representation being the election district. The minimum num ber of voters required to be present under either syBtcm is at least ten in an election district and increases by at least two for each election district in the political subdivision for which the delegate is chosen. The petitions are open for public inspection. Fourth.—The official ballot -will be much like the official ballot at tbe gen­ eral election, with party columns. Modaa of Killing Bill*. Many of the. persons throughout the state interested on one side or the other of direct nominations are of the belief that if the judiciary committees do not report tbe bill out a, vote on the measure will come up on a motion to discharge either of the committees and in this way alone. But such is not the case. A committee can kill a bill by holding it in committee or by reporting it unfavorably. The latter method is probably the more dangerous to the interests of the particular measure. The question then- arises as to whether the house wlH sustain the committee or not. Bo.th senate and assembly usually sustain a\ committee in an unfavorable report on a bill. Legislature's Sense of Humor. Put two hundred and one full blood­ ed American citizens in a city like Al­ bany, a city very much alive, and the simple life will never make very much headway Things are likely to hap­ pen. Practical jokes are a matter of course, and not every one, however. Is as harmless or as mirth provoking as that made at the expense of Assembly­ man Walters of Syracuse a few days ago. A bill was put into the bill box: In front of Speaker Wadsworth's desk providing for the legalizing of a \'Wa­ ter wagon and the necessary method to get upon it.\ . Water Wagon a Common Carriarl^.

What a lot of ululatlon there is about engagements—long or short. Put It down quick that all depends on tbe Interested pair. Two well meaning mothers sat on a porch one day waicb- ing their idols picjc cherries. The idols were boy aud girl, respectively. The mothers decided unanimously that tbe Cherry pickers should marry when they grew up. When the precious pair came down the tree with stains all over their faces they were duly informed that they were betrothed. They didn't know what that meant. By the way, the good old word seems to have gone out of business. In a roundabout way the youngsters found the defini­ tion of the word. When they did, to ring In an inelegant sentence, it wa8 rubbed into them good and plenty. Their homes were far apart, and often there were ftng stretches of time be­ tween their meetings. But as often as they looked into each other 's face they were reminded that they were— \betrothed.\ School days ended, and the girl had her coming out. The boy was having -his going out. There Is a .mighty heap of difference between tbe Itwo. Tbe girl's coming out over, she went into retreat Tibat was not nat- rick's day, the measure provides ^tha'tf Br * L \ he r mother's fault She twenty-three persons or more cai^-Wif.'h»d told all the boys and girls In .the come a corporation for the puirpo^'^ffthat Sallle was betrothed.. ~ constructing, owning., oneBUh»\ :1»M|Wtt»n without daws has no more riding on *»tS ^Si«»i rt ^ to cllmb^t^ ^h his a be- townsman, ^ r leading memWri''^ perpetrating the Joke, and he threat­ ens to call for an investigation. Last year a bill was introduced un­ der the name of Louis Cuvlllier of New York city providing that the frogs of this state be protected from pulmonary tuberculosis during rainy weather, and on nnother occasion Cu­ vlllier was similarly victimized by means of a bill providing for a turn­ stile at the corner of Broadway aud Forty-second street. New York city. Kvery person parsing the corner was to he counted at the turnstile and com­ pelled to pay a fine of $4.

Although the boy and girl did riot see each other as often-as former­ ly, they believed they were tied in some way in a hard knot But time is a famous undoer. The imaginary string was unloosed. The boy went out from home and never came back. He died a dyspeptic bachelor. The girl grew wrinkles. Maybe somewhere the son was shining, somewhere the birds singing, but npt for her.
