YARES WOULD MPE
AND GRADE TAXES
Administration Expected to
Back Plan for State Con
vention to Decide Several
tmo i sTrr cotsro.BtNT.l
HARRlSBURG, Jan. 20 -The Brum
baugh administration Is believed to bo
behind a resolution which Clint-tea J.
Iloriey, Jr , of Philadelphia, will Introduco
In the House within the next few weeks
providing for the calling of r Constitu
tional Convention. The hand of Francis
Bliunk Brown Is Seen In the draft of the
pr .gram for this convention, now being
ptep&red. This fact, together with the
fact that Roncy Is a Vare man, virtually
places the administration behind the plan.
The program for the proposed conven
tion piovldes for these vital changes In
the present constitution:
graded sstem of taxation to Increase
the State revenue.
Home rule for cities of tho first, second
and third classes.
A method to more easily revise the fun
damental election laws.
Reorganization of the State J'idlclary,
abolishing tho magistrates' courts and
providing for consolidated Common Plcus
Courts In IB districts Into which the State
Would be divided.
Increased! powers for the Attorney Gen
eral. nnowx's taxation plan.
The graduated system of taxation and
the scheme for reorganizing tho Judiciary
of Pennsylvania are Francis Shunk
Brawn's own Ideas, which he has fre
quently urged. The part of tho plan
which provides for making the power of
the Attorney General more direct and for
tncrcnBtiig Its scope also indicates that
the, nowly-appolnted Attorney General Is
behind the plan.
TJh plan for a svstem of graduated
taxes would do awny with the present
svstem ,of equalized taxation, and would
place a heavy levy on many of the Statu
taxables and materially reduce It on oth
ers, all with a view to Increasing the State
revenue without further Increasing the
taxes of the small householder.
Tho Vares are behind tho part of the
program which provides for home rule.
Governor Brumbaugh also Is expected to
favor It During the campaign and since
his election ho has frequently declared
in favor of cities determining for them
eelves what they want, and of cities
being able to obtain the Improvements
they want wnnt without asking the per
mission of presons who do not reside In
the city Interested.
ADVANTAGE FOR VARES.
No details have as yet been discussed
for revising the fundamental election
laws but the Idea Is a part of tho pro
The Vares would gain another advan
tage over McNIcl""' If the Magistrates'
courts were abolished, since Senator Mc
Nlohol controls most of tho Philadelphia
Magistrates, and they form a strong part
of his political machine.
They would also gain strength through
out the State through a Judiciary reap
portionment. Under the proposed plan
for redisricting the State would be di
vided Into 16 judiciary districts, with tho
Common Pleas Courts consolidated In
each and with one President Judge In
It the scheme to Increase the powers
of the Attorney General Is carried out
the Vares will become much stronger and
will have a far greater Influence on all
State legislation than they have at
U.S. MUST BRING
JOB TO WORKER,
SAYS BIG BANKER
Head of Huhn,' Loeb & Co.
Must Solve Problem of
By JOHN EDWIN NEVIN
NEW YORK, Jan. 20.-"The United
Stales Government must bring the worker
and the Job together."
This (s the solution for the great prob
lem of the unemployed In the opinion of
Jacob II. Schlff, master banker and head
of the firm of Kuhn, Loeb & Co.
Testifying before the Federal Commis
sion on Industrial Relations today, Schlff
declared the labor unions of the country
will fare far better with the large cor
poration than they will with the small
employer. He placed the seal of his
own approval on the question of unionism.
And he emphatically declared that no
self-respecting manager of a corporation
will consent to the creation of a blacklist-
He Instated, however, that the blr
problem facing the United States Is that
of the unemployed. He declared It wa
tho duty of the Federal Government to
solve it, as private Individuals hare failed
In Schlff's opinion, the day whan great
corporations can defy publla opinion has
passed. When abuses are not corrected,
he said, by the corporations themselves
under the whip of publla opinion, then
that publla opinion usually crystallizes
Into legislation which corrects these
Asked , point blank, if publla opinion
' wa such a corrective, the mlno owners
of Colorado have so defied It, he de
elsftsdi In my opinion the last word in Colo
rado has not yet been written."
Schlff took issue squarely with Samuel
Unterinyer's claim that two great groups
of New York bankers dominate the great
railroad systems of the country, declar
ing it "sher nonsense."
Professor Jacob II. Hollander, of Johtu
liopklna University. Baltimore, told the
Commission that industrial unrest is due,
entirely tQ poverty and not to pauperism.
'This la not the consequsnee of the
laJ( of wealth," he said, "or of lnaufrw
atiwt production, but is due entirely to
fmrap? distribution. Trades unionism
is fry decIrablo corrective, but it is
Sy no means a panacea,"

Senator fctone, of Missouri, chairman of

cating his approval of the determination
of the Administration to fight Great Brit

City Solicitor Ryan has already ex
pressed the opinion that the housing act
Is legal as it stands, hut that It Is dis

shall be appropriated for establishing the
Select Councilman Edward Buchholz,
of the 19th Ward, a dual officeholder, be
ing also u real estate assessor at ?3000 a
year, said today that he made up his
mind months ago not to vote In favor of
appropriations for the new division.
"Judge Ralston Is a Bplendld gentle
man," he said, "but 1 do not believe I
can be compelled to be guided by his
decision when the matter, cornea up In
"I will not vote In favor of any ap
propriations I do not wish It to appear
that I am disrespectful to Judge Ralston.

by housing experts. It Is Impossible to

The Rev. Dr. Edward Yates Hill, pastor

In South Philadelphia, today discussed the

Judge Ralston's decision was the result

BAT CAUSES UPROAR
AT RUSSIAN FETE
Flying Mammal Draws At
tention of Fashionable
Audience From Remark
able Playing of Miss
One of the largest and most repiescnt
atlve audiences ever gathered together
for a charitable affair witnessed the Rus
sian fete last night In the Bellevue-Stratford
ballroom. It was an audience In
close harmony with the solemn and Im
pressive tone of tho entertainment given.
Just why, during the really rcmorkable
playing of the young Russian girl, Miss
Papai ol, on the violin, a diversion in the
form of a frightened, flving, fluttering bat
should have happened Into the sacred
precincts will never be divulged; but In It
came. Suddenly, aa MIa Paparol was
drawing the last exquisite strains from
her Instrument, theio appeared on the
celling of the room a winged thing which
every one fondly thought was a bird
Brought back by tho applause, the email
violinist and her professor were about
to give an encore when the dignified au
dience suddenly buret Into a dull toar.
Again remembering Ita manners, which
seemed badly lacking, self-control was
(brought Into play and a hush fell over
the assemblage. The strains of the en
core swept over the listening throng, as
did the bat. The bird flew over the boxes
with long, graceful swoops, until at last
Philadelphia society forgot Its breeding,
and, though MIbs Paparol played on with
great self-control, a strange thing hap
pened. Instead of the magnificently
gow ned and Jeweled women, with gem
set combs and various graceful head
dresses, first noticed during the evening,
rows and rows of veiled ladles were to be
At one moment George Dallas Dixon
rose from his seat and waved his cane
wildly In the air. In Mrs. William Kills
Scull's box were the Russian Ambassador
and his wife, Mrs. Bakhmetieff, who was
gowned In gold-shot white satin and wore
a tiara of diamonds and tops:, was
obliged to hold a program over her head,
and at the back of the boxes such social
leaders as Mrs. George "W, Chllds Drexel,
Mrs. Edward T. Stotesbury, Mrs, Corne
lius Stevenson, Mrs. Henry Brlnton Coxe,
Miss Constance Beale and Mrs. George
Willing, Jr, were to be aeen dodging and
ducking about, waving scarfs and emit
ting tiny shrieks. In the main part of
the ballroom all seemed to have "taken
the yell," metaphorically speaking. Beau
tiful Mrs. Forney, wife of Brigadier Gen
eral Forney, of this city, crouched down
upon the floor.
Faster and faster flew the bat, louder
and louder grew the shrieks of terror
and laughter, and, as If to add to the
excitement, the manipulator of the spot
light undertook to "spot" the Invader
Finally the small flying mammal lodged
In the ornamentation of the celling and
the audience, with a gentle sigh settled
back to see a beautiful Russian ballet
dance. But the bat was not yet satisfied,
and once more defied fate, this time
flying lower and loner As it seemed he
waa about to light on soma one's head,
he soared suddenly in the air and out In
