Governor Pattison's Inauguration.
On Tuesday last at 12 o'clock noon,
Henry M. Hoyt laid down tho reins of
tlio state government, and Kobert K
Pnttison was sworn in ns Governor of
Pennsylvnuia for tho next four years,
In deference to tho wishes of Mr. Pnt
tison them was no military display,
but tho city was thronged with people,
and n number of political organizations,
bands! and fire companies made an im
posing procession which paraded the
streets beloro the inaugural cuicmomcs
at tho Capitol. Soon after twelve
o'clock, Governor Hoyt and staff and
Governor Pattison and staff mado
their appearanco on tho portico of the
legislative hall, aud after prayer by
Rev. Dr. Robison, the oath of Office
was administered by Justice Trunkey
of tho Supreme Court. The inaugural
address was then delivered, but it was
innudiblo but to a few in closo prox
i raity, owing to the confusion of the
dense crowd of many thousands of peo
ple. At the conclusion of tho inaugural
address tho senate and house proceeded
to their respective chambers. The
house immediately adjourned. In the
senate Lieutenant Governor Stone an
nounced that the governor had been
inducted into office, and his address
would bo placed upon tho desks of
Hon. Chauncey P. Black was then
qualified as lieutenant governor by
Upon taking tho chair tho lieutenant
governor delivered tho following digni
fied, well-timed and non-partisan ad
dress to tho senate.
Senators : It can hardly be neces
sary for mo to say that I assume the
duties of this chair with extreme diffi
dence. Tho rules which govern your
proceedings are, in great part, tho garnered-
fruits of the long experience of
our raos in free parliamentary busi
ness. Their just observance is essen
tial to the proper dispatch of your' af
fairs, to the due order of your de
liberations, and, in some instances, to
the protection of tho constitutional
rights of the freemen of tho state.
But they constitute a distinct body of
law, and a kind, which you of ail 'men,
best know, can be acquired only by pa
tionV application, accompanied by prac
My' predecessors in oflico were, both
of them, distinguished senators before
they were called to the high place which
I now approach without previous train
ing in this or any other legislative body.
This circumstauco will, I trust, bo gen
erously reckoned to mo in partial ex
tenuation, at least, of tho sharp con
trasts which must presently appear be
tween their administrations and mine.
I shall bo' content, however, if, while
failing totally to rival their efficiency
in many important duties of the ollicv,
I shall be ablo to command the appro
bation of tho senate for the simple in
tegrity of purpose which I intend shall
bo tho sdlo inspiration of my conduct.
In this chair I shall conscientiously en
deavor'to forget not merely personal
attachments, but political distinctions,
and remember only mv duty to the
state and tho senate. Upon this can.
did declaration of tho spirit which act-;
uatcs me in assuming my constitutional
relations with you, I do now mo?t earn
estly bespeak your natienco and for-
bearanco in tho many difficult situations
which doubtless await me.
Although president of tho senatn in
virtue of tho office to which I linve been
called by tho will of tho people, I am
not unmindful of the restrictions upon
this function of tho lieutenant gover
nor. Ho presides, but he has save one
neither privilego nor power, unless it
bo comprehended by a fair interpreta
tion 'of that word, lie has no voice in
debate and no vote, but in tho rare case
of a tie. In my reading of tho consti
tution,- ho has no right whatever to bo
heard in this chamber except in neecss
nry explanation of his rulings, and ho
has no mora right on tho occasion of
his taking tho oath than ho has or. any
other to abuse your courtesy by indul
gence in tho discussion of topics beyond
these limits. Relieving that what I
have already said is ndiuissnblp, because
it is in tho nature of such itu explana
tion, nml therefore proper to this cere
mony, I feel that I havo no further
claim to your attention.
Senators : I am ready to proceed
with tho buMness of tho state,

At the meeting of tho Democratic

Legislative Postage Stamps.
Mr. J. McDowell Sharpc, a member
ot tho llouse, has called attention to
the fact that members each receive ono
hundred dollars worth of postage
stamps and tiily dollars extra for tho
purchase ot stationery, it is under
the act of 1870 that such an amount
of postage stamps is drawn. Section
nine ot the net ot June, 12, 1879, pro
vides that each senator and member of
tho house shall bo entitled to receive
fifty dollars for every extra session in
lieu of stationery now allowed by law,
and that no stationery, printed matter
used as stationery, nor any perquistcs
whatever shall iiereatter be iiimishcd
to the members of the legislature by
clerks at the expense ot tho state. Mr.
Sharpo held that theso two laws con
flicted and that the latter repealed tho
act of 1870. The matter was referred
to a conimitteo of inquiry which has
reported that the law granting mem
hers one hundred dollars in postage
stamps is pcrtectiy sound.
Wo endorso the view ot tho matter
taken by the Harrisburg Patriot which
is ns tallows :
There can bo no doubt that this pos
tago stamp business is an abuse.
1 here aro tow it any members who
send through thu post office anything
like a hundred dollars worth of mail
matter. The banks aud business men
of this city know what becomes of tho
bulk of legislative postago stamps. It
is nothing unusal for postage stamps
to become plenty aud cheap in Harris
burg ufter the adjournment of tho leg
islature. Tlio subject will certainly
bear investigation and the point raised
bv Mr. Sharpo should bo submitted to
committeo ot lawyers ot the two
houses. If such a committee decides
that the two acts rcterred to do not
conflict, then tho first duty of the dein
ocrats should bo to introduce a bill for
bidding entirely the distribution of
poslnge stamps. Tho stato coulil thus
bo saved in the neighborhood of twen
ty-four thousand dollars at eyery ses
sion of the legislature. Hero is an op
portunity to cut down expenditures
which should not pass unimproved.
General Palmer's Eeport.
Tho Attornov-General's report, pro
sented to tho General Assembly, gives
in detail tho transactions of his depart
ment during tho past two years, inclu
ding the names and nmouuts of claims
placed in his hands for collection, the
amounts collected aud commissions-
received. He states that the proceed
ings instituted under direction of tho
Legislature against tho bogus diploma
colleges have been successfully termi
nated and all known institutions of that
character broken up ; that tho charters
of upward of 200 graveyard insurance
'companies havo been forfeited by le
gal proceedings, and that other ques
tions of interest and importance have
been settled at tho suit 01 tho Common
wealth. His total collections during
two years were S 120,305; commissions,
$lfi,;l84,-!l; excess paid into tho Treas
ury, 82,384,11; total collections during
his term, S397,010,Gi. Ho calls atten
tion to tho fact that William M. Sin-
geriy, ivsq., furnished tho necessary
funds to prosecute tho bogus colloges,
and that he has not been reimbursed,
no appropriation having been mado by
tl-o Legislature for that purpose.
The Western Union Suit-
Attorney General Palmer has an
nounced his decision in the matter of
an application for a writ of (juo war
ranto agalint tho Western Union Tele
graph Company, In a paper address
ed to Mesws. Ilrowster and Swayne,
counsel for tho company, he says :
'After giving tho case tho considera
tion demanded by tho magnitudo
tho public and privuto interests involv
ed (and tho dillictilty of the question is
stiggestod in very ablo argumonts of
of counsel), I nm of opinion that it
ought to bu submitted to tho courts for
deteriuiiiatiou, nml in coming to this
conclusion I have considered tho jus.
ticu and propriety of inaugurating the
litigation, as well as the possibility of
final judgment in favor of the Com
iiiouwealth. I do not see that u for
mal explanation of tho reasons that
Iiavo led to this conclusion can servo
any useful purpose. I shall iinmedi.
ntely causo a bill to bo filed in tho Su
preme Court of Poiinsylvanin substan
tially in tho form of that presented to
you and praying that contracts and
nonsolldntions entered into by tho
Western Union Company with other
eoinpanip. In tho State of Pennsylvania
in violation of the Constitutional pro
vision and tho gunc-nd statutes may bo
declared void and that tho said uouipn
pies bo perpetually restrained from op
crating under them.
