Hasty Legislation.
Ono of tlto great and growing ovlla of
tho tlino la tho hosty manner In which
laws aro matlo. Tho conscquonco Is thnt
thpy nro criulo nntl Illy digested, In
many instances unconstitutional, nnd
frequently, In tho caso of local bills,
aro passed without consulting tho pco.
plo to bo affected by them.
Bo common is this that tho Legislature
has becomo n mero machlno to advance
tho Interests of n few Influential citi
zens, or of powerful corporations. Mem
bers are nro Induced to voto for meas
ures which thoy bcllovo to bo wrong,
through fear that, If thoy do not, their
own legislation will bo lmpcucu or no
fcated. A9 a conscnucnco, all matters,
however trifling, aro thrown Into tho
legislative hopper and an immense
amount of chaff, and cheat Is tho conso
quencc. Wo havosccn as many ns ono
hundred bills (many of them of tho
gravest Importance) passed In as many
minutes, tho subject matter of which
was known to only tho members who
presented them, and In many Instances
oven they did not know tho cousequenco
of what they wcro doing.
Tho record of last week's proceedings
lu both Senato and llouso fully bears out
this statement. Bank acts wcro pre
scnted practically severing tho.connec
tion between father and child husband
and wifo and contrary to tho entire
policy of tho law. During the debate
ou this subject, our Member, Mr. Brock
way said :
"I have noticed soveral bills with fua
tures similar to this : and although 1
think it is a foregone conclusion unit
they will pass for there aro few Instan
ces where corporations are refused what
thoy nsk in this body yet I wish to
point out briefly an objection that 1
havo to it, and to all bills of this class.
Section threo provides that "married
women and minors shall bo competent
to make such deposits with said torpor
ation,and their checUs.orders orreceipta
fur tho tuino shall be a sufficient dis
charge of tho said corporation, '' &c.
This enables minors to deposit money
subject to their own control, and there
is no provision that tho parent may
touch it. For that reason I think it Is
in conflict with tho entire policy of our
law. It changes all existing rules in
relation to married women, aud enables
them to make deposits whether thoy
aro of their own earnings or not and
keep them for their own separate uso.
The capital stock of theso corpora
tions is of such naturo that there is no
protection whatever. By a recent ex
amination of Fomo of theso savings
banks in New York, it was found that
they wero fraudulent: there was no,
security whatover for tho depositor.
It is truo that some bills passed last
year and years previously, containing
this section. Tho fuct is, this is au in
ducement for n man's wife to go through
his pockets at night and make a deposit
in the bank, and ho cannot reach it
afterwards. I think it would make
more business for tho Committee on
Divorces if this was passed.
Tho legal objections have not yet been
met so far as I can see. The parent or
husband now by law Is entitled to tho
wages of his son or daughter, and ho
should bo entitled to them, having
reared them up to tho ago when they
would bo useful to him. But suppose
tho bank refuses or declines to pay for
any reason whatover, tho married
woman cannot bring tho suit, nor can
the minor in his own name. It seems
to mo that is sufficient objection to tho
But theso Banks, not content with
obtaining this privilege, havo asked
to bo allowed to becomo executors, ad
ministrators, trustees, guardians, com
mittees of lunatics, receivers, Ac, with
out giving bond or security, &o.
This section was also opposed by Mr.
Brockway and on motion was stricken
out. Another class of objectionable
legislation Is granting charters of incor
poration where the Courts have power.
Dozens of such bills have been present
ed and will undoubtedly pass. Under
tho law tho Courts can grant charters to
loan associations and firo Insurance
companies, yet a largo number of theso
bills aro now on tho calendar and op
position to their passage seems to bo
Many hope and believe that tho com
ing constitutional convention will rem
wly all this. "Wo bcllovo not, becauso
thosauia class of men who manago the
Legislature will probably control the
Conventlbn. Even if wholesome ro
forms aro Incorporated In tho Constitu
tion, so long as Representatives aro
elected in tho present manner, they
will cvado or openly Ignore that instru
ment as they aro doing dally now. Tho
only plan is tho adoption of a system
which will enablo good men to repres
ent us, without being compelled to go
through forms In which a blackguard
or a scoundrel stands tho best chance of
Radical Reformers.
Tho opposition parly contains so
many of theso gentlemen, that occas
ionally It Is instructive to watch their
proceedings. Prominent among them
in this Stoto Is Deacon White, a mem
ber of tho House from Allegheny. Ills
speeches read well, but his votes do not
correspond. Men who introduce un
constitutional bills and advocato tho
exemption of railroad bonds from tax
ation are not such roformers as our pco
plo demand. Tho same may bo said of
Williams from Luzerno, a momber of
tho W. B. A., who has voted for every
corporation measuro proposed tills win
ter. Grant was elected asu "reformer;"
but tho fact is now patent that u moro
corrupt administration never disgraced
"Washington. Not only tho Chief, but
tho subordinates aro prostituting their
positions for power and for money.
Lust fall, the Republicans of Now
York affected horror at tho Tammany
frauds, shutting their eyes to U1030 that
existed in their own ranks. Tho leading
Democrats of tho Stato set at work at
onco to exposo them and punish the
guilty ,and nro doing so without fear or
favor. They oven aided tho Republic
ans In carrying tho Legislature, In tho
hopo that it would provo non-partisan ;
but liko all Radical Legislatures, It 1b
found to bo as corrupt as Its predeces
sor?. Speaking of it, tho New York
Tribune says :
But if, Instead of this, wo havo n
werk and corruptible Legislature If It
is composed in good part of men who
have achieved nominations aud elec
tions with intent to mako money tho
session will not only provo n failuro In
Iteelf, but will swamp tho parly which
tho peopio will Justly hold responsible
for its miscarriage.
What sort of a Legislature liavo wo
really elected?
It may bo too soon yet to Judge, but
tho Indications nro unpromising. Thoy
jusuiyn uoiii'i inuirt goon many mem
bora Imaclno they wero chosen to make
us much nolso as possible about Demo
cratic frauds, but roar you ircntl.v as a
sucking dovu when tho presumptive
rascals aro Hcpuoucans.
Wo would suggest to our oppoucuts,
that hereafter beforo thoy mako charges
against us, they should first seo that
their own skirts nro clear.
Nothing of interest was dono In tho
Senato on Wednesday of last week,
House. Tho prlvato calender was
tho order of tho day.
At half-past cloven tho Senate mot
tho Houso and counted tho returns of
tho lato election for auditor general,
nnd surveyor goneral, and on tho con
stitutional convention. Tho figures

Mr. Buckalow hoped tho bill would
rccelvo proper treatment, as It had been
presented in n proper manner nt the
Instance of tho printers of the Common
wealth. Ho was in favor of tho bill, be
cause it gavo tho minority tho benefit
of public Information. There ought to
bo a uniform rulo governing official
advertising; and this pUn of giving It
to tho paper of each pjrly having the
highest circulation, seemed tho be9t
that could bo adopted. Tho bill will
prevent abusea that now exist, and tho
only disadvantage wil bo to small news
Tho motion uas modified to postpono
for tho prebont.
Mr, Evans said this patronage was
generally in tho hands of competent
