Antique cuspidors readied for session.
Accompanying note: "These ornate and ancient brass cuspidors are getting the spit-and-polish treatment and will be in place in the Senate when the special session, called for reapportionment, gets underway tomorrow. There are 19 of these showpieces in all, so placed that two senators share one which is between a pair of desks. In case membership of the senate is enlarged there will be no additional cuspidors of this type ordered--they're no longer available and the ones shown here have been in the senate for almost 40 years, when tobacco-chewing was the fashion. Valued as rare antiques, they are kept under lock and key when the legislature is not in session."
