He then deelared his intention of forcing the bill before the house by means of a petition to be signed by fifteen members. This he failed to do, and as a result the advancement of the bill to see olid reading is still some time ahead. Tuesdays se-ssion, it appears, will be occupied by bills which have been made a special order and the remaining days of this week are also filled with otlie-r business, according to those in clo-e touch with legislative activities. «
