PRESENTATION OF PETITION. Senator Porter introduced Senate petition No. 5, as fol. fols: To the honorable Senate and House of Representatives of the State

of Kansas:

We respectfully ask the honorable Senate and House of Representatives of the state of Kansas that section 2069 of the Revised Statutes of 1901, providing what shall constitute grand larceny, should be amended so as to include all domestic fowls, wheat, oats, potatoes, cured, fresh or salt meats, or can goods of any description, lard or butter, and harness or saddles, without regard to the value thereof.

It has become the practice of what is known as “petty thieves" to steal just enough of the domestic fowls to be below the twenty

a

dollar mark, leaving it petty larceny instead of grand larceny, making their trips frequent, so that a law of this kind becomes a necessity.

Signed by W. T. Hite and twenty-six others.
The petition was referred to Committee on Judiciary.

Senator Buschow introduced Senate petition No. 6, as follows: To the Senate of the Kansas State Legislature:

DEAR SIrs: In behalf of our Woman's Christian Temperance Union and of the citizens of our town and county, I beg that you will not yield to the demand for resubmission of the prohibitory law of our beloved state. Our temperance union is probably the only one of the state that favored the election of the republican ticket, and that through my influence I urged that the republican party first gave Kapsas her temperance law, that her officers are the ones who have enforced that law, and now that the republican party rules in Kansas it can forever settle this question.

I pray God that my confidence in you may not be misplaced. You dare not yield to the enemy, as you value the happiness of your children for generations yet unborn. Sincerely yours, for God and home and every land,

MRs. Emma Nason,

President W. C. T. l'., Stockton, Kan. The petition was referred to the Committee on Temperance.

Senator Porter introduced Senate petition No. 7, as follows: To the honorable the Senate and the House of Representatives of the

It has become the practice of what is known as petty thieves to steal just enough of the domestic fowls to be below the twenty-dollar mark, leaving it petty larceny instead of grand larceny, making their trips frequent, so that a law of this kind becomes a necessity; therefore, please urge the passage of this act.

Respectfully submitted by S. T. Bain and forty-five others.
