Tho Bordor raid bill has been repor
ted negatively to t lie House.
S. Davis Pftco was confirmed bv tho
Sonnto on Wednesday, ns controller of
Mr. Vandorslico is reported as voting
gainst a resolution providing tor Ion
ger daily sessions of tho House.
Tho tariff question is taking up a
great deal ot tnno In Uougress, and as
only about twenty days are left for tho
present session, it is doubtful whether
a bill will bo passed this year.
Storms, freshets and ico gorges aro
reported irom tho west. In tho western
part ot this stato tho streams roso rap
idly, bridges and houses wero swopt
away, and a number ot lives lost.
Eight persons have been arrested in
Dublin, Ireland, for tho assassination
of Lord Cavendish and Mr. Burke,
some months ago, in the park. Tho
identification seems complete, and great
excitement prevails.
in constitution ot this stato uro-
vides that no railroad shall grant free
passes, or passes at a discount, to any
person except officers or employees of
the road. Tho constitution was adopt
ed eight years ago, and tho Legislature
has failed up to this time to pass an
act to enforco this provision. Recent-
or this purpose and referred to a Com
mittee of whioh Messrs. Vandorslico
nd Bryson aro members, and both of
them aro reported as voting for a neg
ative recommendation. As wo have
not seon the text of the bill, wo cannot
say whether there is anything obieo-
tionablo in it, but if not, our members
should voto for all measures that aro
intended to oarry out the provisions of
ino constitution, even it it compels
mem to pay their railroad tare.

Retnses the Pees.
Tho Harrisburg correspondent of the
Philadelphia Sunday World writes
tho following :
"Mr. Cassidy has had a chance to
make a clear thousand outsido of his
salary since he became attorney gencr
ai, utit no could not see how ho was
cutitled to tho money, and resisted the
temptation which was set before him
Among tho counsel of tho Standard
Oil company in the recent suit of the
commonwealth against tho corporation
was Cassidy. He was considered an
able lawyer, and as this great inonono
ly always employo eminent legal talont,
thoy employed him and gave him a
substantial Ice. boon alter he took
possession of tho office ho was surpris
ed to be informed that a check iiad ar
nveu for him amounting to over nine
hundred dollars, and that it was from
tho btandard Oil company, mid intend
ed to pay tho commission in tho case,
the attomoy general being entitled to
fivo per cent, of the amount collected
from companies which have appealed
irom tho settlement ot the auditor gen
eial to tho courts. Cassidy refused to
take tho money, stating that he had
received a fee as counsel for the Stan
dard and could not tako money now
from the samo corporation in the same
case as a law officer of tho state, epec
tally since ho had earned none of it.
Tho check was sent back with the in
struction that it be turned into tho
state treasury. In declining to accept
tho money Cassidy did not follow in
the footsteps of his predecessors, who
appropriated commissions earned by
thoso whom they succeeded as attorney
general. Cassidy is free to say that ho
favors tho abolition of tho feo system
ho far ns it relates to officers of the
state. IIo would rather havo a fixed
salary oven if it should not reach tho
amount now received by the attorney
general in fees and salary. Gov, Pat
tison Is said to bo in accord with the
attorney general in his views of the feo
Bloom Poor Distriot.
At n recent mecttiiK of tho members
of tho Democratic Standing commltteo
lor tho townships embraced in tho
Bloom Poor District, Wesley Morris of
Greenwood, and Dr. F. W. Hedekor
of bcott were nominated as candidatct
for directors of tho poor, for this dis
trict. Tho meetini' was called and
held in accordance witli the custom of
tho Dcmocratio party, tho nominations
wero fairly and reinilnrly made, tho
candidates are well qualified for
tho position, and aro therefore entitled
to tho support ot every demoorauo vo
ter in the district. Tho present board
of directors is composed of two repub
licans and ono demoorat, nd while
thoy have conducted tho affairs of tho
district satlsfactgrily, that is no reason
why others will not make just as em
dent officers. Tho election of two re
publicans thrco years ago was brought
about by a split in tho dcmocratio vote,
and tho samo result may Do reached
this vear unless tho nominations aro
supported by tho party.
lliuollico ot
Poor director is not, or at least ought
not to bo a political office; but as tho
democrats aro largely in tho majority
in the district, thoy ouoht to have a
majority representation on tho board.
Tho only suro way to nccomplisli this
is to voto for tho tnon who havo been
regularly nnmed by tho party orcaniza
tion and these aro Wesloy Morris and
The Boarding House Aot.
surnEMr. couiit at rirrsnuiw rno-
Tho Supreme court of this Stato re
cently rendered a decision of great im
portanco to boarding house keepers,
lawyers, justices and tho general pub
ho. The caso in which the opinion
was delivered originated in Allegheny
county and was entitled smith vs. Jlc-
Uinty. Tho .action was tor a debt,
tho dofendant having failed to pay a
bill for boarding duo the planum, and
suit was instituted under what is gen
erally known as tho "boarding house
act, passed by tho Legislature m 187b.
The justice before whom tho caso was
originally heard rendered judgment
for the full amount of tho bill. Tho
matter was appealed to the district
court, .where the justice's decision was
reversed. It was then taken by the
plaintiff to tho Supremo Court, and
that tribunal sustained tho opinion ot
the District Court, tho judges holding
that tho act of 187G is unconstitutional
and in conflict with other laws on tho
statute book, and that a bebtor has
tho samo right to tho benefit of tho
"threo hundred dollar law" in an ao
tion to recover n board bill that ho
has in suit for any other kind of claim.
This decision, of course, "knocks the
bottom out of tho law," and keepers of
public houses will have to resort to
some other means to protect them.
Oonstitutional Prohibition.
Moro strenuous efforts are being
made this year than ever before, to so
cure an amendment to the constitution
concerning the liquor traluc. inree
separate proposed amendments havo
been drawn and aro now botoro tno
Legislature for consideration. They
aro as follows :
Articlo XIX.. Section 1. The manufac

Another laith (Jure,
Doylestown, February 1.
Tho little viliago of Chalfont, about
four miles west of this town, is gossip
ing about what its residents call a inir
ado. Tho miracle is tho reported euro
of a voung woman named Ella Ebert
daughter of Gottlieb Ebert, by what
known ns tho faith cure. She has
been an invalid for moro than two
years. Disease lias made her a physi
cal wreck and lifo was apparently a
burden. For months sho wns not nblo
to rise fiom her sick bed. Several
physicians wero called to treat her case,
but none afforded her more than
temporary relief. Her nmlady was
called consumption of the lungs by
some and spinal disensu by oth
eis. Last week tho invalid expressed a bo
lief that she could be cured by prayer,
and her friends accordingly took steps
to hold a special prayer meeting at tho
Ebert residence. At the appointed
hour, 2 o'clock last Tuesday, four
members of her oliuroh assembled and
engaged in earnest petitions for her re
covery. Presently tho sick woman
showed signs of regaining strength,
arose from her bed, dressed and joined
in tho supplicatiou. Since then sho is
said to bo slowly recovering. This is
tho second euro of this kind reported
lately in this county, This ono is ro
gnrded by tho tho residents of the
neighborhood as being very remarkable.
Governor's Message.
Governor Pnttison sent n messago to
tho Legislature on Tuesday nftcrnoon,
f which wcj givo portions bejow. Ho
'i hough so short a time has elapsed
since tho former executive addressed
you in an nble, wise and exhaustive
message, yet in accordance with ro
quircments ot tho constitution, that tho
governor shall fiom timo to timo roc-
commmend to tho general nsscmbly
itch measures ns ho may judgo ex-
edlent, I send you this communica
Tho message then refers to tiio abuses
bf the Recorder's oflloe Delinquent Tax
office, and b'-aler of woighls and
Measuies, in Philadelphia, and pro
ceeds !
T havo alwavs entertained tho onln-
ion that needless and extravagant offi
ces, such ns those I havo referred to,
should bo utterly abolished. Somo pf
theso places pay their incumbents
reater compensation .than is received
by any officer of the commnnwoath
and at least ono of thoiu, moro
than tho president of tho United
States. Tho legislature should not
hesitato about what to do in theso and
Bimilar cases. Tho public sorvice
should not bo made attractivo becauso
of its emoluments. Extravagant sala
rics breed an offico holding class, in
pired,.notby patriotism and public
spirit, but by avarice and greed of
gain. Tho youth ot the land should
bo taught to look to official preferment
for its honorable distinction as an ave-
ntio for faithful public service, and not
ns a moans ot money-making and ot
escapo from tho buulens of labor,
These opinions, always entertained and
frequently expressed. 1 will gladly CO'
oporato with tho assembly in putting
nio practical operation uy nuousniug
all needless and retrenching all ex
travagant offices. I have been grati
fied to observe tho disposition shown,
and progress made, by the legislature
toward that end. While sitcn oiuco
exist, however, tho executivo deems it
his duty to see that they are. tilled by
thoso in whom ho has tho highest con
fidoncc, and can repose the fullest
trust. This is his first and sworn duty
f ho is to take, caro that tho laws bo
faithfully executed.
The spirit of the constitution is un
doubtediy that all officers and employ
ees. either ot the stato or local govern
ment, should bo paid by hxed salaries
and not by fees. This spirit should bo
faithfully carried out bv tho legislature.
aud a law enacted abolishing fees
whenovcr possible, and hxing a deh
nito salary for all incumbents. How
ever it may be disguised, every law an
thoming tho charging ot a lee lor an
official act is equivalent to the lovying
of an additional tax. It is an indirect
form of taxation, objectionable for its
uncertainty and tho dithculty ot ascer
taining its amount. All taxes whether
feo or otherwise, should nrst go into
tho public treasury, that tho people
may know how much tnoy contriDuto
toward tho cost ot tho government
and tho public officers should after
ward bo paid( therefrom known and fix.
ed amounts for their services.
In abolishing the feo system, how
ever care should bo taken that tho com
pensation bo not merely changed to a
fixed salary equally as exorbitant as
the former sum received. Many of the
salaries faxed tinder the present con
stitution aro out of all proportion
to the service rendered. There are
clerks of courts receiving greater pay
than tho judges whose subordinates tbey
are,and registers of wills whoso salaries
aro twice as much as thoso ot the
court who adjudicate tho dead men s
estates. By what possible system of
adjustment theso results wero arrived
at it would bo difficult to determine,
but such incongruities should not bo
permitted longer to exist, ihey will
servo to illustrate, however, tho neces
sitv for a careful scrutiny of official
salaries with a view to tho general re
duction of many. Tho appointment of
a ioint comraitteo of tho legislature to
inquiro what offices in the various ex-
ecntivo departments of tho stato may
bo dispensed with is a most desirable
undertaking. Diligent inquiry will,
am convinced, enablo the commit
tee to recommend a considerable re
duction in tho force of employees in
tho departments and the amount of
their compensation. I regret tho scope
of tho inquiry was not enlarged so as
to includo tho entiro civil service of
tho state. The results, I am sure,
would have been moro effective. It is
not too lato for the lceislaturo yet to
empower the committee to so extend its
ncKoitsi in omcub ADVERTISING
Tho advertising of official notices
has been tho source of many abuses
and much soandal, particularly in our
cities. Much of tho official advetising
as now done is practically useless and
a waste of public money. I would
recommend tho enactment ot somo
general law upon this subject requir
ing public ndvertisoments to bo insert-
eu lu tne newspapers oi wiu laigeai, uu
dilation. If there is any purpose to
, i i i i r .
to uo served uy sucu auvcrtismcnt,
beyond the mero expenditure of mon
ev, if publicity is really what is desi
ed, then the most evident means to ob
tain that publicity should bo adopted
aud papers of largest circulation cm
ployed. Not only would such a course
executo tho plain purposes ot tho law.
but a great Baving of monoy could bo
clfcotod, as thero would not then bo
necessity for so frequently inserting
tho notices or advertising them so
much nt length. Economy and pub
lioity would botli bo served by tho on
actmunt of such a law. In municipal
advertising it would bo well to in
vest tho control of such matters in tho
councils of tho cities. Thoy aro tho
ncaiest to tho peoplo whoso monoy is
spent, bost know the popular wish and
it would bo wisest to trust to their dis
cretion. Such provisions as I havo in
dicated with referenco to advertising
would enablo officials to ho moro imlo
pendent of party iouriials, and would
have a healthful Influence upon the
press by enabling that avenue of pub
Uo intormaiioii to bn moro tree and in
depondont in its strictures upon ofll
cials, Tho publio money should not
bo used to subsidizo tho channels
through which tho people learn to
good extent how their servants executo
their trusts.
A measuro has bcoi introduced into
ono of your bodies to provido for tli
settlement in disputes between employ
eon nnd employers in certain of tho
groat industries of the state. This
is a movement in tho rigtit direction
Though limited to but a few of tho
dopariuunts of labor, yet it is begin
niug upon a subject that ought long

should bo mado that when disputes nriso
between thoso wjip pay nnd thoso who

aliko to both parties to the controver
sy. I ho courts nro open to other citi-
zcih toonlorco their rights, why should
thoy not bo to thoso who toil for wages
to enforco theirs 1 I suggest tho prac
ticability in many instances of n pro
vision being made requiring employees
to give a certain timely notice to their
employers botoro quitting work on no
count of a refusal to increase wages,
and tho employers to give a similar
notice to tho laborer bctoro reducing
pay. 1 Ins would prevent many of the
nsohiofs of strikes, and ennblo both
parties to provido in timo for changes
that, by their .suddeness olten bring
ant, misery and ruin to many. 1 ho
bill before you, and tho whole subject,
ought to occupy much of the best
thought ot tho legislature.
Whilo upon this subject I would
suggest tho passage of a law similar to
that in force In other states prescribing
how all ballots' used by electors shall
bo printed, their shape, tho size, tho
cnaiuutur oi type, ami uiu quality nuu
color ot tho paper to bo used. This
would contribute to tho secrecy of tho
ballot and, would bo a protection
to many iu tho exercise of their fran
chises, free from tho knowledge nnd
nnd surveillanoo of employers and oth
ers, upon whom they mav bo depen
dent. It would also prevent many do
ceits nnd impositions being practiced
upon voters by deceptive headings. To
iiow great an extent this modo ot fraud
has prevailed is well known and wns
forcibly illustrated when n few days
ago an imporant public olhcer ot tho
stato voluntarily testified in tho trial
of a cause that he had procured largo
numbers of tickets to be prepared for
use at an election with one party s
heading, and another party s candi
dates printed thereon. Such decep
tions upon tho voter would not bo pos
sible if tho entiro character ot tho bal
lot was prescribed and lcgulated by
You will bo called upon to appor
tion the state into congressional, sena
torial and representative districts. It
is important that tho work should bo
done at this session. Thero should be
no difficulty in agreeing upon such bills
as wilt cive fair and just representa
tion to all sections and interests. So
important a matter should be approach
ed without party zeal, and with no de
sign to do anything but, to carry out
tho plain spirit and intent ot tho law.
iVny advantages gained by one party
over another by partisan apportion
raents have always proven short lived
and have otten terribly reacted upon
their authors. Let tho directions of
tho constitution be observed as to com
pactness of territory and as far as pos
sible equality of population, and let
party and personal interests bo subor
dinated and forgotten, aud thero will
bo no trouble in promptly making an
apportionment that will give true and

into other districts, is to commit a ser
ious wrong against such constituency,
I hopo many of tho defects and much
ot the miustioo ot tho present appor
tionment will bo remedied by tho work
ot this session.
I recommend that the legislature
takes steps to enforce by appropriate
legislation Article 17 Ot the constitu
tion. That articlo provides that all in
dividuals and associations shall have
equal rights upon railroads aud canals
without discrimination in charges or
facilities to persons or places. It pro
hibits tho consolidations ot the stock,
property franchises of competing com
panics, it provides that common car
riers shall not engage in any business
otner than than that ct common carry
lug. it seeks to pieveut officers oi
corporations from oorruutlv Drofitinn-
i... ti.-1 .. . ... , f.
uy iiiu uusuiess oi tneir companies, n
prohibits unfair preferences in furnish
ing cars or motive power, by drawback.
or otherwise, between transportation
companies and individuals.
It also forbids tho Issuing of fre
passes to any 'persons other than offio
ers or employes. In short, articlo 17
seeks to maku transportation companies
act justly i to compel them to treat all
citizens impartially and fairly; to
raako thorn deal honestly, aud to pio
vent Harassing or oppressing unv par
of tho community. Such wiso and
wholesome provisions would seem in
tended for tho common good, and ougl
not to bo rendered abortive by the nog
lect of the legislative power. I sinoero-
ly rosonimond that a bill bo passed to

penalties for their violation, or in such
other way as tho legislature may deter
miuo. Uio constitution was adopted
in 1 87.1, and up to this timo no effort
nas bccu mado to enforce its just pro
visions as to railroads aud canals. I
am glad to observo that a bill is now
before you relating to tho free pass
amise, which tho constitution prohibits.
I trust an effective measure will be en
acted on that subject, as well as all
those referred to in article 17.
A commission to consider tho rovo-'
lines of the State appointed at tho last
session of tho legislature has, I under

tho subject of taxation until it has an
opportunity of considering tho oomplet
ed recommendations of that comiuls-'
sion, He wil lfrom timo to time, as tho
constitution directs, communicate his
thought to tho legislature, as occasion
may seem to warrant.
No sesston for many years has pre
sented so important subjects for legis
lative notion. The people look with
high expectations to tho results of your
deliberations, and I entertnin tho belief
that their hopes for wlso and wholesome
legislation will be realized.

Silver-Plated Ware.
The great improvements during the
last few years in the manufacture of
silver-plated ware, have In many
ways Increased the desirableness of
this excellent substitute for solid silver.
Not only has great durability been
obtained by the new methods, but
pattern .and finish, which formerly
betrayed the difference between it and

It is, however, only in the higher
grade of electroplated ware that these
excellencies of the designer are at
tempted to be wrought out, such per
fection of workmanship and dainty
finish being impossible in the inferior
varieties, in addition in the vital defi
