WALNUT SEES PERIL
OF LEGISLATIVE CRISIS
Fears "Whip of Patronage" May En
danger Civil Service Bill.
The present situation botween Governor-elect
Brumbaugh and tho Legisla
ture, which might develop into a crisis
where tho whip of patronago would bo
used to keep the Legislature In line, has
caused the framora ot a Statewide civil
sorvlco bill, which will bo introduced
during tho present session, much concern.
"It would bo a matter of regret If the
5000 or more positions in the State were
to embarrass the proposed State civil
service law in which both Dr. Brum
baugh and tho Civil Service Reform As
sociation are Interested," said T. Henry
Walnut, an Independent and a member
of the Executive Committee ot tho asbo
clation. "Tho present situation nnd a
possible crlBls emphasize the fact that
under a State civil sen-ice law theio
would not be so much reason for a clash
over patronago between the Chief Exoc
Utlvo and tho Legislature, for then the
Legislature would not have bo much In
fluence over the Governor and tho Gov
ernor would not have so much Influence
over thp Legislature.
"Legislation would be enacted more
under the auspices of public opinion, un
affected by tho matter of patronage.
Fights over Jobs sometimes distort or
stitlo legislation. It may .under tho pres
ent Bjstem, more frequently happen that
Jobs would havo moro Influence over
legislation than would the good or evil
Inherent in the proposed legislation,"

A canvass of tho members of the Penn

fact that a great number of tho Senators
did not realize the significance of their
action last week when thoy voted fa
vorably on the resolution presented by

Committee," and to It will be Intrusted

by the Governor during tho four years
of his term. It Is generally agreed In
political circles that at tho dictates of
tho Republican Organization this commit

head of Governor-elect Brumbaugh should
his nominations not meet with tho ap
proval of tho Organization leaders.
Some of tho Senators expressed sur
prise that they had voted for tho Crow
resolution nnd others declared they would
stand by Governor Brumbaugh In case
of a dispute In the Senate over his nom

SHIPPING MEN ASK REPEAL
OF SECRET MANIFEST ORDER
Treasury Regulation Places Outbound
Vessels Under British Suspicion.
Shipping men said today that It was
tlmo for tho Secretary of the Treasury
to rescind his order to conceal t)ie mani
fests of outward-bound steamships for
30 days after the vessels sailed. If he wns
slncero In his desire to assist In the
transportation of American goods abroad,
Theso men condemned tho order when
It was first Issued several weeks ago and
they declared that It would cause Great
Britain to consider eveiy vessel leaving
American ports under suspicion. This Is
borne out In the reply of England to tho
United States' protest, which reads In
part as follows
"SlnLe tho outbreak of the war tho
Government of the United States has
changed its previous practice and has
prohibited tho publication of manifests
till 30 dajs after tho departure of vessels
from tho United States ports. We had
no 'locus Btnndl' for complaining of this
change, and did not complain. But the
effect of It miiBt be to Incrense tho dif
ficulty of ascertaining the presence of
contraband, and to render necessary In
tho Interests of our national safety the
examination nnd detention of more ships
than would have been tho case It the
former practice had continued."
