Mr. Sink made the following statement:

"I was not on the floor of the House when the vote on the bill was taken, and wish to state that had I been present, I should have voted 'Yes'."

Mr. Wm. B. Campbell, having reserved the right to explain his vote, made the following statement:

“This bill is an enabling act only. The city of Detroit can take advantage of this law just as easily now because of its great preponderance of influence in Wayne county, as it could if Mr. DeBoer's amendment carried. Possibly Grand Rapids and other large cities cannot do that. I believe the principle is unjust, and because of that I had to vote against this bill. I would like to have voted for it, had it treated all alike."

Mr. Culver, having reserved the right to explain his vote, made the following statement:

"I voted 'no' on this bill because it is a bill calling for the expenditure of money. The records do not show that it has been referred to the Committee on Ways and Means and I found that an organized effort was being made to keep it away from this committee. For that reason, I felt that I should vote against the bill."

Mr. McLain, having reserved the right to explain his vote, made the following statement:

"I voted against this bill because I think it is an unjust discrimination in the distribution of State favors to certain parts of the State against other parts, meaning cities. Those of you who know anything about it, know that when the State began raising the black flag over the tubercular patient and advertising him as a menace to society, it made him a State charge.

I have seen and taken care of a great many charitable cases of tuberculosis. I have seen them die in all kinds of conditions in the State of Michigan. I believe that the bill is just and right in that it provides for the payment and upkeep of indigent cases of this kind, but I believe just as firmly that the dollar should go to the city patients just as well as to the country patients. I should like to have voted for the bill if it had not been for this discrimination. I want to repeat that the indigent tubercular patient is a State charge and the cities pay toward the upkeep of State taxes. I cannot see any use for such discrimination. I believe it is unjust. The patient is a just charge, whether it be in the country or city, and the State should pay for his upkeep."

Mr. Culver rose to a question of personal privilege and made the following statement:

“My attention has just been called to the fact that the statement has been made here on the floor of the House that I have been representing, as attorney, some organizations interested in the bill introduced by_Representative Anderson for the regulation of hairdressers and cosmeticians. The statement apparently has been made for the purpose of injuring me. I want to say that there never has been any secret about the fact that I am attorney for the organizations asking for this bill. I have stated to different members that when this bill comes up I should have to ask to be excused from voting for that reason. I think the Speaker will recall the fact that I told him several weeks ago that I would have to be excused from voting on this bill. I want to say that the situation is not different than it has been right along. I have stated at all times that I intended to ask to be excused from voting. There is an attempt being made to make it appear that I am using my influence in this House to aid an organization for which I am an attorney. I want this to appear on the records in justice to me.”

Senate Bill No. 146 (file No. 109), entitled

A bill to amend section 35 of Act No. 300 of the Public Acts of 1909, entitled "An act to define and regulate common carriers and the receiving, transportation and delivery of persons and property, prevent the imposition of unreasonable rates, prevent unjust discrimination, insure adequate service, create the Michigan Railroad Commission, define the powers and duties thereof, and to prescribe penalties for violations hereof,” being section 8143 of the Compiled Laws of 1915, and to repeal Act No. 136 of the Public Acts of 1897, entitled "An act to protect the lives and property of persons at the crossings of railroads and public highways, within the State of Michigan", being sections 8389 to 8393 inclusive of the Compiled Laws of 1915,
