EXPLANATION OF VOTE

In explanation of my vote upon the motion to receive the bill for the appropriation of $5000 pursuant to the request of the Governor, dated January 11, 1924, I beg to say that my vote was cast against the receiving of the bill for the reason that I have stood from the beginning for a program of confining this special session to the considerat:on of code revision, and having so stood consistently from the beginning, and believing that the session should be confined exclusively to code revision work and that all other things can wait for the few months until the next regular assembly convenes, I cast my vote against the motion to receive.

CHAS. M. DUTCHER.
