[In the Legislative column] Quite early in the day Mr. Campbell of Yavapai introduced a resolution directing the appointment of a committee to wait upon the governor and inquire why the street railway company had not removed its track from the capitol grounds. The speaker left his chair to suggest an amendment to make the inquiry of the company itself.. If one were merely in pursuit of information to satisfy a passing curiosity the inquiry at headquarters as suggested by the speaker would, no doubt, be natural, but then it would likely lead to nothing but an answer. The amendment was not seconded and the original resolution was enthusiastically adopted without a division on political lines. Even Mr. St. Charles buried his silver views for a moment.
A committee was appointed and it subsequently reported that the governor could only say that the capitol commission had notified the street car company to make tracks elsewhere within a certain time, which would expire in about ten days.
