Tlio following bill has passed second
readitiif in tho Stato Senato:
An act forbidding ovcrsoors,guardians
or directors of tho poor of the several
counties, cities, boroughs and townships
of this commonwealth irom receiving
or retaining in any almsbouso or poor
houso children between the ages of two
nnd sixteen years, and providing for tho
caro and disposition ot tlio same.
In answer to an inquiry from tho An
ditor General as to tho pay of members
of tlio Legislature, Attorney General Pal
mer has written an opinion in which ho
declares that tho act of Assembly giving
tlieso ollicialsSl.UUU torn session not ex
ceeding ono hundred days, and $10 a day
thereafter for a period not exceeding
fifty days, unconstitutional. It is now
eighty eight days b'uico tho Legislature
convened. There wcro sessions held on tit-
ty tlirco days,twclvo days wero Sundays.
Hovon days thcro was no quornm,and six
teen days, no session. Tlio House has
only passed thirty-seven bills out of fiv
lmtwlwil tirnspntpfl. ntnl tlin Son.itn mil
forty seven ont of two hundred and fif

tho Governor, and yet alter this outr

ten dollars a day, when thoy could have

timo that a heavy hand is placed upon
this body, nud an end is put to this
squandering of public money to pay men
who do not earn one-third ot what they
receive. The legislature is under llo
publican control. Much of tho time
wasted was caused uy-ttio limit over
United States Senator, and much nior
by their filibustering, and if a Itepubl
" can Attornoy General can prevent bis
party from taking a largo amount of
money from the Stato Treasury, whicl
thoy have no right to take -ho will be en
titled to tho thanks ot tho whole peopl
for tho honest discharge of his duty, lie
low wo append an extract from bis opin
ion. "Tho act of 1874 first provides a salary
of 1,000 for a session not exceeding ono
hundred days. If tho session continued
but half a hundred days tho salary of
ii,ouo would ho earned, and doubtless
would not bo declined. It then allows
per diem compensation of 810 forsueh ad
ditional timo as may bo necessarily spent

both a salary and daily pay. The time is
limited to fifty days,but tho right to pro
vide additional compensation boyond the
salary for fifty days implies the right to
comer it lor threo hundred days or
long as tho general, assembly may chooso
to sit and take it i and it further implies
uiu rigut io hx u pur uiein compensation
for as many days as the general assembly
may chooso to hold it3 sessions withont
reterenco to n salary atall.tlius perpetrat
ing tho very evil sought to bo remedied by
tho convention.' If this part of the act 'is
npt in irreconcilable conflict with tho pro
vision mat memucrs snail .receive "no
other compensation whatever" besides
n salary, then for this case all established
rules oLconstruction fail, and all common
understanding ot plain words is at
I ho constitution commands that tho
members of the general assembly shall bo
compensated ior tneir services by a sal
nry.and salary only. All other kinds of
compensation aro expressly forbidden.

der it, would bo unwarranted or unau

by an ablo opinion of my predecessor,
lion. George Lear, given on tho Oth of
December, 187(3, to a committee of tho
legislature, m which, after nn exhaustive
discussion of this section of the constitu
tion and act of assembly this language
occurs j
"A salary is defined to bonn annual or
periodical payment forservices.a stipula
ted periodical recompense. This is not on
ly tho established definition and popular
uiiuuisianiiing oi iiioiciin.but the, consti tho uso of qualilied it as to
exclude any other conclusion than that it
is a stipulated recompense or compensa
tion for n season. Tho per diem nlloiv
nucu in the salary act was doubtless an
oversight, but is nevertheless unconsti
tutional." And if further confirmation wero need may bo found in 'A Commentary on
tho Constitution,' a work by tho Hon.
Charles II. Ilnokalow, now ready for tho
press, which tho position of tho nnthor in
tho constitutional convention, and his
character as a lawyer will entitle to bo
regarded as valuable authority. Constru
ing tlio section under consideration ho
nays; ''This bection was agreed to by tho
ooiiveutioii,ii)ou the distinct understand
ing that it would exclude the alio wanco of

1 may obseivi', in conclusion, that tho
bvsh'oii of tho general assembly will be in
no iviso necessarily ubridged by this de
cit't ii. Tin ru is nothing in tho constitu
tion or law limiting their sessions to one
hundred or ono hundred and fifty days,

sense ot public duty of its members, nud

Tho row which was stirred up in tlio
House last Monday oventnir when tho
irrepressible Charllo Wolfo after tho old
timed lnsluon succeeded in working up
the boys, was indicative of moro troublo
to follow, inter on. Tho repeal of the
lleoordurn'nct was tho pnmo causo of
this disturbance, tho unruly element of
tho House opposing tho proposed legis
lation and thus compelling tho friends of
tho bill to hlibustcr in Us lavor, again
when tho bill was legitimately reached
on tlio calendar ior lirst reading tho rut
inr nnirit of tho nrcHcnt lowsrado IIoilSO
cropped out in characteristic stylo. Tho
gravo business of legislation which con
icmiuaics uiu correction vi uuu ui uiu
most arrant abuses extant in tho ring
cursed city of Philadelphia had to givo
piaco to mo lntrouuciiou ami cousiucru
tion of tho following nonsensical resolu
tion, which I quote in full as a specimen
of tho kind ot high toned measures intro
duced: Tho consideration of tho Record
er's repeal bill being in order, Mr. Haz
let offered tho following:
WHEUHA8, tho rhiladclphia Times in
tlio lssuo of .Monday gavo notice that to
day tho boss Legislative circus would ex
hibit nt tho Capitol: and
AViiEUBAS. It is plainly apparent that
the Times aforesaid did not properly
publish tho programmo as tnado out for
tho- circus managers aforesaid ; bo
Rksoi.vkp, therefore, That hereafter
boforo any programmo is enacted upon
tho lloor of tho House by tho circus afore
said that the onter ot exercises bo sus
pended until tho arrival of tho clown
from tho Philadelphia Times whose ap
poaranco on tho tan shall bo heralded
by a howl from tlio "Great American
Wolf" the king of all circus animals.
Thus thoy gloried in their own Bhame,
Uut thero aro moments when sober
common s'enso prevails and then somo
good is done. Tho Houso passed througl:
one of theso brief periods on Wcdncs
day when tho State Capitol bill came up
for consideration. It was briefly and
sensibly disposed of. Tho voto by which
it was defeated was yeas lal nays
Hut tho bonne louche of tho weeks
session was tho opinion of tho Attorney
Ggneral on tho salary question. ,IIo has
decided that the members can only bo
paid $1,000 no matter how long tho
session continues. This opinion fell liko
a bomb -shell into tho midst ot tho law
makers and as unexpectedly as a thunder
clap from a cloudless sky. .Tho way this
occurred was rather peculiar and tlio
motivo for it is much canvassed. It
seems that a member frpm Lackawanna
county Mr. La louche suddenly becamo
uneasy in regard to his pay and without
much consultation with othcis addressed
a communication to tho Auditor General
nnd Stato Treasurer asking their con
struction of the law fixing tho salary of
members. Tins communication was
sent to tho Attornoy General Mr Pal
merand shortly after his printed opin
ion was laid upon the desks of tho mem
bers embodying the decision as abovo
given. Ho single event has occurred
this session which lias occasioned so
much discussion. Many take the posi
tion that tho motivo of this opinion was
to compel an early adjournment of the
Legislature nud thus to defeat certain
anfi corporation bills now pending The
matter was long and earnestly discussed
in both Senate and House, in tho latter
body much feeling was exhibited and a
Committee of Investigation was appoin
ted with power to send for persons and
papers' with the intent of inquiring into
tho causes which brought about tho de
cision. J hoso who know Attorney Uen
eral Palmer do not believe that ho had
any sinister motive in promulgating this
opinion and in fact it is not tho first timo
tho matter has been broached. Attornoy
General Lear held about tho same opin
ion, and mauy good lawyers do not hesi
tate to say that the decision is good law.
What will bo its result? First tho Leg
islature will have to adjourn on tho 14th
of April, or stay hero after that on their
own expense.which but very few of them
would be willing to do. Although thoso
now particularly angry declare that they
will stay hero now and pass the supposed
obnoxious measures if it takes until sum
mer, but oven if they wero so inclined
thoy could not get a majority of tho Leg
islature to stay with them. Taking it all
in all tho members nro in an ugly fix,
many of them havo been depending on
this extra pay nnd will consequently bo
embarrassed if they do not reoeive it,and
it is no wonder that somo of tho hotel
keepers hero are beginning to feel a lit
tlo anxious. More on this subject
Next Thursday evening has been fixed
ns the timo for holding a special session
to consider tho bill proposing an amend
ment to tho Constitution prohibiting tho
manufacture nnd salo of intoxicating
liquors. There aro many anxious but
hopeful Temperanco people around hero
who I am afraid are- destined to bo dis
appointed. This, Tuesday, aftcrnoou bsing tho
timo fixed for tho consideration of Jtho
bills repealing tho Recorder's oflico of
Philadelphia both bills wero taken up
and passed on second reading by a viva
voce vote. Prom all indications thoro

modore Ridgeloy. Tho young man has
been on a threo years' cruiso on tho Alns

San Francisco on her homoward voyago
about tho time Judge Hunt was niado
Secretary of tho Navy, and his son henr
ing of his father's appointment jumped to
tho conclusion that he would be specially
favored, so telegraphed for

of going with his ship, which wns order.

Unless wo nro much mistaken in tho
character of tho peoplo of Virginia, Bays

tlio treachery of Mahono will kill tho re

financial dishonor ho advocated is very
strongly allied in morals to tho sale of his

Tho coincidence is suggestive.
Tho Republicans make a great mistake
in tho temper of tho people of the South
when thoy assumo that tho corruption of
chaso to promote their political sohenies
carries with it any considerable number
of the Southern people. Tho contrary is
tho effect. It intensities and solidities
tho opposition. That has . been tho ex
perience Biuco tho war. Wo need only
refer to tho cases of Mosby, Longstreet,
Key, Akerman, Settle, and many others
who followed them.
Nor is this suspicion of sudden politi
cal conversion confined to tho South. It
may bo accepted, we think as a settled
principle in tho drift of American poli
tics, that tho masses of both parties re
gard with distrust any sudden change of
front by their political leaders. A revo
lution to bo effective must commence nt
the bottom and work upwards. We could
illustrate this by many instances of change
by public men, of great ability and un
questioned probity, of whom thoro was
never cast the suspicion of sordid motive.
Thoy carried with them few followers.
This was especially conspicuous in the
Greeley campaign. If this is tho result
with tlio best and bravest of American
statesmen, how much stronger will it bo
in a caso where every attendant circum
stance points to downright and undenia
ble corruption, as in tho treachery of
Mnhono's treason will solidify nud
strengthen tho conservative party in Vir
ginia. It also imposes on tho repupub-
licaus tho responsibility for legislation,in
both branches ot uongress,witlt a pre
carious aud doubtful majority, which iu
ono branch rests ono admitted bribery.
The Democrats, wo suppose in difference
to tho Seuatcofiicials aud snug places on
committees, were bound to mako a "show
of fight"for tho organization. Tho result
is satisfactory,aud it is not a case of sour
grapes either. Wo prefer tho Republi
cans snouid hold the Senate by one v.otc,
and that voto Mahone's, rather than the
Democrats should purchaso responsibili
ty on tho samo condition.
