THE KM QUESTION
Will Have to Bo Decided by the Votes
of the Sovereign People.
NECESSITY OF AN EXTRA SESSION
Is Denied by Many Prominent Eepuolican3
ALLEGHENY WILL BE LIFT IN A HOLE
Unless Information en the Municipal Bill Is Quickly
The question of an extra session of the
Legislature in case prohibition is carried, is
still agitating politicians of both parties.
It begins to look as though an extra session
will not be called. Mr. Cooper has asserted
himself in the matter of liquor legislation,
and is now content to rest. There is a prob
ability that Allegheny City, if it does not
fly to the support of its municipal bill, will
have to accept legislation passed without
regard lor its wishes.
FKOI A ETAFF COEEESrOVDEXT.J
HAKRlSBrjKG, January 26. The question
raised by The Dispatch concerning the
need of a special session ot the Legislature
in the event of the passage of the Constitu
tional amendment prohibiting the manufac
ture and sale of liquor, has been answered
in the affirmative. One voice of dissent
comes from the Democratic side, and is the
Toice of one who aided to frame the organic
laws of the State.
It is generally agreed by Republicans and
Democrats alike that if the amendment is
carried at the polls, a special session of the
Legislature will be a necessity. The execu
tive officers most concerned, the Governor
and his legal adviser, the Attorney General,
are naturally reticent on the subject in the
presence of a correspondent, and absolutely
refuse to deal in futures in connection with
this matter. It is stated for the Governor,
though, that he will see the necessity for a
special session should the amendment pass,
and will call one. But it must not be for
gotten that Governor Beaver saw no neces
sity for calling a special session of the
Legislature to deal with the revenue bill.
It is not impossible that should the criti
cal time arrive the Governor might adopt
the view of the Democrat referred to, and
permit events to shape themselves until the
next regular session of the Legislature. The
matter is within his discretion, and the
party is content with that.
AX EXTRA SESSIOK UNNECESSARY.
The Democrat who considers an extra ses
sion of the Legislature unnecessary in the
event of the passage of the amendment, is
Representative Daniel M. Wherry, of Cum
berland, the leader of his party in the
House the man who received the nomina
tion of the Democratic caucus for Speaker.
Sir. "Wherry was the youngest member of
tbe convention that framed the Constitution,
and argues from the instrument itself, and
from his knowledge of the intent of the con
vention that the amendment to the Consti
tution will be of no effect until the Legisla
ture enacts a law to enforce it, and that con
sequently it will not act as a repeal of the
present liquor laws.
Tbe position of the Republican party in
luc .utrisiaiure on liquor legislation lias
been carefully considered and reconsidered.
At first a general understanding grew up
that the liquor laws were not to be tampered
with until the people had disposed of the
prohibition matter. This was the under
standing up to thetime of the joint Bepub
lican canvass, while professing to be very
desirous of having it understood that the
party should act in good faith in submitting
the amendment to the people, at the same
time dropped a hint that the Brooks bill
ought to be strengthened immediately.
Then came the bill so much talked of with
whieh Mr. Cooper threatened for a time to
divide and conquer the temperance and
prohibition forces and use them in the fur
therance of an effort to regain his lost lead
ership. The final result has been the
solidifying of the sentiment against amend
ing or revising the liquor laws in any way
at the present time. As to its effect on Mr.
Cooper's future, there is but this to say now:
A MAN OF RESOURCES.
The Delaware Senator has shown himself
to be a man of resources. "While it is cer
tain that be made the liquor question boil
without orders from recognized headquarters
and against its wishes, he at the same time
showed that he might be a troublesome foe
or a useful adherent. That the powers that
be have tljings well in control is indicated
by the ease with which the introduction of
the bill was diplomatically and indefinitely
postponed after the first feeling of surprise
had worn away. Though this is the case, it
is recognized, in spite of the irritation he
caused, that Mr. Cooper has acted in such a
way that the party cannot complain too
loudly of him. His only offense has been
to have his bill widely advertised. Heat
the same time submitted it to party leaders
and abides by their decision on the subject,
while holding himself free to press
it upon them at any time. He
has also in a measure placed
them on the defensive by having it assumed
that his measure is an advance on the pres
ent laws, and then inquiring in wondering
innocence, for which he is famous, whether
they desire to place themselves in the posi
tion of opposing progress.
The answer to this is simply: "We at
present oppose nothing and favor nothing
in the matter of liquor legislation. The
sovereign people have been asked to declare
their will, and until they declare it we are
Thus the matter stands. Snirsox.

ISrECIAI. TELEGBAM TO THE DISPATCH..
Harrisburg, January 26. The House
is expediting business so rapidly in com
parison with its predecessors that Lieuten
ant Governor Davis and Speaker Boyer
predict an earlier dissolution of tbe Legis
lature than two years ago, whrn it adjourned
on the 10th of May. Over 100 bills have
already been read the first time, which
shows unusual activity on the part of the
standing committees, but it must also be
taken into account in speculating on tbe
probable time of final adjournment, that a
much larger number of bills has been in
troduced at this session of the House than
at the corresponding period two years ago,
and hundreds 01 bills were not reached in
final passage at the session of 1887.
Thus far about 350 bills have .been read in
place in the house, and tbe proper consider
ation of these would keep the Legislature in
session as long as the preceding one; but the
number will be more than doubled, and the
Senate will add about 300 to the list.
EXPLANATIONS IN ORDER
Regarding tbe Provisions of Allegheny
City's Municipal Bill.
FEOM A STAFF CORBESPOVDKKT.
Haerisburg, January 26. Members of
the Legislature have looked askance on
some of the bills introduced from Alleghe
ny, and important committees have been
angered by the fact that requests for infor
mation are met by the statement that the
bills were introduced by request, and the
gentlemen who moved them are unable to
explain them. This is the -case with Mr.
Lafierty's street railway bill, Mr. Marland's
traction railway bill, and some corporation
bills introduced by the former. The com
mittees want the parties who sent the bills
here to come and explain them or keep
them at home.
The latest grievance against the State of
Allegheny grows out of the bill to remove
the city of the same name from tbe third to
the second class. The objections that
caused the recommittal of the bill have
roused the wrath of the representatives of
the third-class cities, as they plainly see
that the present complications are likely to
retard general municipal legislation and at
best result in the disposal ol the matter
painfully close to the date of the sprine elec
tions. Should they determine to take the bit
between their teeth and force the matter to
an issue, with the possible aid of Philadel
phia, they may leave the Allegheny bill in
committee, pass the bill dividing cities into
classes, and also the bill for third class
cities, amended to asrreewith that provision
of the classification bill which makes second
class cities those of 75,000 population or
more, and less than 600,000. In this event
Allegheny would become a city of the second
class, subject, as such, to the provisions of
the act governing Pittsburg, with not even
a punctuation mark subtracted therefrom or
CORPORATIONS WILL BE TAXED
On Their Capital Mack by the Proposed
rsrxciAi. telegeam to the dispatch.
Harrisbueg, January 26. The new
revenue bill being proposed by the financial
officers of the State will not contain the pro
viso in the act of 1885 exempting manufact
uring corporations from the payment of a
tax on their capital stock. The exception
of this class ot corporations from the opera
tions of the proposed legislation taxing cap
ital stock would contribute about 400,000 a
year to the public treasury. The change ot
the law, so as to include the capital stock ot
manufacturing companies as a subject of
taxation was mlerentially suggested in the
late message of Governor Beaver to the Leg
islature, and the indicated modification will
be largely due to his views as to the propri
ety ot taxing them as well as other corpora
tions. The capital stock of building and
loan associations, as in the present law, will
not be made taxable.
The fact that a commission, appointed
under a resolution of the Legislature,
drafted a revenue act at an expense ot
10,000 to the State, has almost been for
gotten, as some of its essential features have
been declared unconstitutional by the
courts. This commission made a record
almost as memorable as that appointed
about seven years ago to hunt 5100,000 of
the State's money, which, after a protracted
expensive investigation was found not to
have been lost.

Haerisburg, January 26. It is known
by comparatively few people that the case
of the Commonwealth to prevent the con

South Pennsylvania and Beech Creek rail
roads by the Pennsylvania Bailroad has not
been pushed to a final decision. The pre

Appeals Warmly Argued in Court by
the Counsel on Both Sides.
ATTOBNEYFOR THE ALIEN ESTATES
Rather Sat Down Upon by Judge Emng in
Some Fine Law Points.
THE TEST CASE SOON TO BE DECIDED
The important test case of the Denny
estate in its appeal from the decision of the
Board of Assessors, came up in Common
Pleas No. 2 yesterday morning before
Jndges Ewing, White and Magee.
The points were argued at length from 11
in the morning until late in the afternoon,
and were watched with considerable interest
by many legal gentlemen present, as it is
the first case of tbe sort ever brought up in
the Allegheny county courts, and upon the
decision there hinges the question of a great
many thousand dollars, beside the establish
ing of a precedent that is of great import
ance to this city in view of the enormous
properties held here by foreign land owners.
The bill in equity argued yesterday was a
test case to restrain the city from assessing
property owned by the Dennvs in the
Fifteenth ward, and the improvements made
upon them by the Carnegie Bros. & Co., to
the Denny estate as a whole. Heretofore
the property has been assessed in the
name of the lessees, but the city claims that
the improvements are a part of the land,
and therefore have placed the assessment
upon the Denny estate.
Major W. C.Moreland, assisted by R. H.
Douglass, appeared for the city and R. B.
Carnahan for the Schenley and Denny
estates, although the former estate was not
interested in the case under argument.
PART AND rARCEL OF TUE LAND.
In his opening remarks Major Moreland
said that, by common law, the improvements
on land, no matter what the interests of the
lessee may be, made them part of the land
and real estate, and therefore the assessment
In reply to the allegations in the bill that
the Board of Assessors, in departing from
the letter and figure of the returns made to
them by the ward assessors, Mi. More
land argued that they did not act illegally,
as alleged in the bill, but followed out the
act of 1834, which was intended in the ab
sence of any other regulation to be a
direction and guide for the Board ot Asses
sors. This act prescribes that the Board of As
sessors shall take the returns of the ward
assessors as a basis for their assessment.
Then following out the line of his argu
ment, he said the act of 1834 gave them
power to revise and equalize by adding or
deducting or changing, and to rectify all
errors, and by the terms of the act itself it
would be seen that the board had made a
legal and proper assessment.
Having shown that tbe board had a right
to assess the ground, he went on to show
that the improvements naturally followed
the ground, no matter what interest the
lessee might have in them; they were made
so by common law, ana there was no act to
change it. Property in the soil extended
indefinitely upward and downward, and he
had been unable to find any law that would
permit the City ot Pittsburg to file a lien
against tbe building.
OX THE OTHER HAND.
E. B. Carnahan then arose in behalf of
the Dennys. His arguments were frequently
interrupted by the Court, who manifestly
differed with him in many points in law,
and at one time Mr. Carnahan most cer
tainly lost his temper, and perhaps the
august court did tbe same, as the conclud
ing remarks will show.
Mr. Carnahan argued that as the im
provements of the lessees of the Denny es
tate, by the terms of the lease, belonged
exclusively to the tenant, and as the Denny
estate had no right or title in them whatso
ever, it was an absurdity to assess to the Den
ny heirs that which they did not own and
thev had no interest in whatevei.
He then presented a supposition. If the
court owned land worth ?5,000, leased as the
Denny lands were leased, and the tenants
erected mill improvements valued at $100,
000, would the court pay assessments on
those improvements in which they had no
Judge Ewing replied that in that case,
if the lessee did not pay the taxes, the owner
of the land would be obliged to do so, and
thus get the mill.
Mr. Canrahan made some remark about
legislative and judicial robbery, and Judge
Ewing replied that they would not permit
him to say anything about legislative and
judicial robbery in that court. Mild hos
tilities ceased here, and the argument was
resumed. Nothing, however, ot importance
outside of the points above given, was

Novel Styles of Fnrnitnro Finish at the
Mr. W. H. Keech returned a few days
ago from the great furniture exposition at
Grand Bapids, Mich., and in his descrip
tion of the exhibits he stated that American
furniture manufacturers are going far ahead
of anything that is made anywhere else. In
point of novelties, elegance and comfortable
articles, there have been great achievements
during the last year.
The most striking novelties in parlor and
dining room furniture noticed were an imi

finish called the malachite. The first has
an antique oak finish, with an additional
fine clouding worked in it, which lends the
furniture a peculiarly striking appearance.
The malachite is a green finish, which is
put in a transparent form over the ground
