GENERAL SPORTING NEWS OF THE DAT
Yesterday was a great time for the dog
fanciers in and about Pittsburp. The dog
show opened in the Grand Central Rink,
and if all the succeeding days of the exhibi
tion turn out as well as yesterday did the
show will be a success. It deserves to be
successful; many of Pittsburg's most promi
nent citizens are interested in it, and have
spared neither time nor trouble to make the
snow a good one. Certainly there is a long
list of famous doss on exhibition, and it is
needless to say that they are well worth seeing.
Of coutso there is always something attract
ive at a dog show for all classes of people. It
is interesting to note how the various classes of
canines attract the attention and admiration
of particular classes of human beings. Doubt
less the pointers and setters have more ad
mirers than any of the other classes, because
everybody who delights in going out with the
gun, or who enjoy a day's
SPORT IX THE FIELDS,
has a taste for the kind of dogs named. Con
sequently the great majority of the large
crowd present at the show yesterday made
their way to the pointers and setters. And
there was something worth looking at. Both
pointers and setters were well represented.
The famous Paul Gladstone, the Sandsome
lilack. white and tan English setter, of the
Mount Washington kennels, was the cynosure
of all eyes. Paul was in the champion class
and was "unopposed. He has quite a remarka
ble record, having been a pood winner Doth in
field trials and at all the leading bench
shows. J. O'H. Dennj's Brandon was
also greatly admired. The bull terriers
were scanned closely by those who
delight to see that class of terrors in the pit in
battle. There were some good terriers, without
doubt. The grevhound. undoubtedly, were
lietter this year than thev have been in this
citv tiefore. The Homell-Harmony kennels,
of Covert. 2f. Y., carried off the honors with
some excellent specitnpns of the greyhound
class. Hazelhnrst, the winner of first prize for
dogs, is really a well-formed black and wbito
dog. The same kennels carried off first prize
for greyhound bitches, with Harmony. It
was a close contest between Harmony Phil,
and Eckert's Kate. Mr. Eckcrt and his friends
were exceedingly disappointed at the decision
oflhejndgc, Mr. Isaylor The Homell-Harmony
kennels also captured first for prey
bonnd puppies with a pretty little blue bitch
named Fannie M.
THE XOBLE MASTIFF.
The mastiffs showed up welUtnc entries being
large and the quality excellent. Mr. Charles C.
Cook, of Canton, O.. had som beauties there,
and they were as majestic in their appearance
as thev were handsome His fawn-colored
dog Slopes, by Champion II ford Cau
tion, was awarded first prize with
out much troulile. The dog is certainly
a. first-class one. Mr. Cook also took first prize
for bitches and for puppies with his Hertba
and Apnl Queen, respectively. There was a
little dissatisfaction regarding" the contest for
the rouch coated St. Bernard dogs. The Key
stone Kennel's Meinrad was awarded firt
irize. His hind legs are faulty and, although
le has been exhibited six or seven tunes, he
lias fa-led to get near a prize until yesterday.
Mr. Xa lor placed liim ahead of such good
ones as Bernardo, Mont and Don Juan, all local
nogs It may be more correct to say that, al
though Don Juan, who is owned by John
in? ",IA '.v
TTewell. was withdrawn from the contest and
fchow as soon as it was discovered that Meinrad
was to have the blue ribbon. The Keystone
Kennels did well, as the; captured four or five
The fancy dogs, that is those kept as pets,
were rot so numerous as in former years, but
the quality was good. The Irish setters are
strong in numbers and of a hicb class. The
beagles are also numerous, and Superintendent
Kruger's kennel is a great attraction. There
are some good fox terriers and spaniels. Major
J. M. Tavlor judged the pointeis and setters,
ami Mr. Jvanr all the other dogs.
Prof. Parker's troupe of performing dogs is,
indeed, a great attraction. They arc wonder
ful and wise little and big animals. Alto
gether the show is certainly worthy of patron
age. Following are the awards made jester

THEIR LEAGUE OUGAMZED.

SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Cantos, January 23. The new Tri-State
League was organized here to-day, with Can
ton, Mansfield, Wheeling and Dayton as mem
bers, and Springfield, Lima, Hamilton and Ft.
Vajne promised, and Steubenville and East
Liverpool ready to put in a club jointly if any
ot the four promised cities fail. President
McDermitt, of Columbus, represented Dayton;
W. T. English. Wheeling; M. D. Ward and C.
H. Voegele, Mansfield, and L. A. Loichot and
Manager Harrington. Canton.
The salary limit was reduced from $900 to $750
per month for each club, exclusive of the man
ager, and this limit will, under no circum
stances, be exceeded. Big salaries Killed the
league last season, and the owners of the new
clubs can see success only in a strict adherence
to the new salary limit.
Mansfield wanted the millennium plan
adopted, and failing in that threatened to drop
nut unless the salary limit was fixed at the
figure stated. Al Pratt, of Pittsburg, was at
the meeting, and succeeded in having the
Spalding bail adopted. The season will open
Mayo and close September 10, and American
Association rules will govern. Manager Har
rington was deputized to visit Springfield,
Lima, Hamilton and Ft. Wayne to assist those
cities in joining the league.
The next league meeting will be held at
Dayton at the call of the President. Canton
has 15 men under contract, and will sign about
lmore, from which number a team will be se
lected after the aggregation has put in two
weeks' practice here, just before the season

(SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Ixdiaxapolis, January 29. It is now re
garded as certain that the Brush syndicate will
get the League franchise a resnlt that has not
been doubted by those who have given the
matter any investigation. Dickson and Talbott
have received a letter from Mr. Young saying
that their application had been placed on file,
and that the League had nothing to do with
the disposal of the grand stand and grounds.
The firm at once wired back renewing their
original offer with a modification of $1,000 less,
which amount will be necessary to purchase the
ground rights from Mr. McCutcheon.
Since they have made a bonafide offer of
$20,000 for the club, or enough to pay its debts,
it will be interesting to know whether the
League will dispose of it at a less price. Fifteen
of the stockholders of the baseball organiza
tion have combined and will bring suit to es
tablish their rights they claiming that the
directors had no right to surrender or other
wise dispose of the franchise, without first

Minneapolis, Minn., January 29. Patsey
Cardiff to-day signed articles of agreement to
fight Peter Jackson, the colored pugilist of
California, in April. The fight will be to a fin
ish, with small gloves, at the rooms of the Cali
fornia Athletic Clnh. San Francisco. The win
ner will receive $2,500 and the loser $500.
Under the articles the men are prohibited
from engaging in anv previous fight without
permission of the club. Cardiff bas gone into
active training. He says a finish fight is his
forte, and he expects to win.
Tbe Color Line Drawn.
Hicrraoxn. Va., January 29. The members
of the Detroit club, of the International Asso
ciation, have been ordered to report here on
April 1 for preliminary practice, and Manager
Lcadly has arranged to plav the Cuban Giants
in this city on April 9 and 10.
It is very unlikely, however, that the games
will be played, as a strong opposition to them
has been developed, owing to the fact that the
Cuban Giants are all colored. Manager Leadly
has been acquainted with the feeling of tbe
people on the subject, and, it is understood,
lias cancelled his contract with tbe Cuban

Messrs. Joseph A. Huggins, of this city, and
J. W. Rothwell. of Washington. Pa., have de

"telegraph" contest, that is, the Eastern men
shot on their own grounds, and the local con
testants shot at Washington. Richardson and
Jewell each made 410; Huggins made 432, and
Rothwell 401, the two last named winning by
only 3 points.

Voters of the Seine, Not
0YERBUBDEHED WITH MODESTY.
IIo Attacks the Government and Prophesies
MINISTER FLOQUET HOPES AND FEAES.
Germany Still Firmly Holds to the Belief That a
War Will EesuIL
General Boulanger has written a letter
thanking the voters of Paris for their sup
port He charges the Government with
arbitrary acts, aud predicts that it will soon
be retired from power. He closes with
"Vive la Eepublique." Floquet will make
an effort to stem the tide of popular feeling.
It is believed he will fail. German papers
see trouble ahead.
Pabis, January 29. General Boulanger
has issued a letter thanking the electors of
the Department of the Seine. He says :
I am still under the influence of the deep
emotion caused by the marvelous demonstra
tion of Sunday. I no not wish to postpone tho
expression of my gratitude to the admirable
population which marched so bravely in serried
ranks against a parliamentary coalition com
posed of those who appeal so audaciously to the
Republic, which their faults, their impotence
and their intrigues have so gravely compro
mised. Kcver under any regimen was an
official campaign of infamous attacks, premed
itated calumnies and odious menaces more
scandalously conducted against a candidate.
Ballot in hand, you brushed away at one sweep
slanders and slanderers alike.
The National Republican party, based upon
the probity of its officers, sincerity and uni
versal suffrage, is henceforward to be the
foundation of the Chamber which has fought
against it with unprecedented fury. The
Chamber now has nothing before it hut disso
lution, from which it will not escape. It is to
you electors, to your energy and to your good
sense, that onr great country will owe deliver
ance from the parasites which devour while
they dishonor ber. The Republic is now free
to all Frenchmen of good will. May they enter
it and others leave it. Vive la France! Vive
THE TAETT IN POWER.
The various sections of the Republican
party held meetings lo-day. The Extreme
Left decided to support the proper re-establishment
of the "Scrutin d'Arrondisse
ment." A number ot Deputies of this
party advocate a general election as speedily
as possible. The Union of the Left desire
that M. Jonv'encil's interpolation on Thurs
day shall precede the introduction'of the
"Scrutin d'Arrondissement" bill. The
Radical Left is unanimously in favor of
maintaining the present Cabinet in power.
Premier Floquet urges his colleagues to
assent to a measure modifying tbe press
laws, especially relating to placards and
colportage. "Apropos of Boulanger's proc
lamations hostile papers assert that their
real author is the journalist Pierre Denis,
a sometime leader on the Crt Du Peuple,
who is now a contributor to La Presse, and
who has been successively editor of Social
ist, Moderate Republican and Bonapartist
FEAKS FOR FLOQUXT.
Moderates donbt Premier Floquet's ability
to pull through the crisis. Monarchist
papers insist upon the necessity of his im
mediately announcing a policy, quoting the
famous phrase Gambetta applied to Mac
Mahon, "II faut se soumettre ou se de
mettre." When M. Jon vencil interpellates the Gov
ernment on Thursday in the Chamber of
Deputies regarding the course it proposes to
pursue in order to prevent the spread of
Boulangerism, the Ministry will fully ex
plain the situation, announce the policy it
intends to adopt, and introduce a bill for
the re-establishment of the Scrutiu d'Ar
rondissment system of election. This course
was decided upon at a meeting of the Cabi
net to-day. i

The Election of Boulnnger Continues to

Berlin, January29. The election of Gen
eral Boulanger continues to be the theme of
earnest discussion. The feeling in official
circles over the election is less pessimistic
than that of the press. If the predictions
of the newspapers are fulfilled
Europe will be in arms within a
few months. On the Bourse yesterday

the election disclosed such demoralization
in France as would prevent a war for a long

KEADI FOR EAST AFPJCA.
The Bill Will Pass nnd the Expedition Start
Berlin, January 29. In the Eeichstag
to-day the East Africa bill passed the sec
ond reading after a short debate, in which
only Progressist and Imperialist members
opposed the measure. Drs. Virchow and
Bamberger were alone among the members
of the committee in desiring the rejection of
the bill, which was returned to the Reichstag
in much the same form as drafted.
Captain Wissman declared that the em
ployment of force would be unavoidable,
and that the more energetic their action
was the briefer and more effectual it would
be. Before cominc to the Reichstag Captain
"Wissman lunched with the Emperor and
then visited the Chancellor, receiving finnl
orders as to what statement he should make.
The Post announces that the officers of the
expedition have been instructed to be ready
to start at the end of next week.

Chicago, January 29. An exceptional
occasion, of which United States Senator
Shelby M. Cullom was to-day the central
figure, was made still more notable by an
address from him, which, in a part at leant,
will doubtless be'the subject of more than
national attention. The two houses of the
Illinois Legislature had met in joint session
in honor of Mr. Cullom's presence and to
afford him an opportunity to express him
self regarding the unanimity with which he
had been re-elected to the Federal Senate.
Mr. Cullom thanked the members fittingly
and then gave vent to some thoughts which
elicited round after round of applause.
Senator Cullom said:
Gentlemen There are many questions of

reference to our railroad connections between
our people and those on the other side of the
line. I expect a committee with which I am
connected to investigate that subject during
the summer, if we are not kept in continual
session at Washington. I am not going to dis
cuss it now. I simply desire to intimate that
my feeling is that the people of tho United

A GRAND JURYMAN IN DISGRACE.
He Is Sent Home Intoxicnted In Charge of
ISFECtAL TELEGKAM TO THE DISPATCH.:
Netv York, January 29. P. F. Camp
bell, a member of the grand jury of Hud
son county, was dismissed from service as a
juror to-day for being drunk. He has been
drunk several times since he was appointed
on the jury, and Jboreman U JSeu com
plained to Judge Lippincott. When
he appeared in the jury room yes
terday, the judges sent a constable
for him, and he was arraigned in court.
'Campbell," said the Judge, 'you are con
tinually drunk, and you are bringing dis
grace on the grand jury system and the ad
ministration of justice in this court. For its
own protection the Court feels that its duty
is to discharge you in disgrace from the jury
and send you home in charge of a con
stable." Campbell said, as he swayed from side to
side: "Tha'sh allright, Judge; but was
axser matter my going home alone?"
"Because the Court doesn't think you are
fit to go home alone," responded the Jndge.
"You will go home with a constable."
"No. I'm if I'll go home with a con

ASSAULTED HIS ATTORNEY.
A Scene in a Court Room Which Will Cost
St. Louis, January 29 There was a
sensational scene in Judge Uorrail'cs court
to-day. Ed. Kelly, alias Slattery, charged
with highway robbery, and a desperate
character, who has served time, had just
consented to his attorney, Joseph Furlong,
to accept a ten year term in the penitentiary
for his crimes.
"Ten years?" asked Judge Normile, hesi
tatingly, as he was about to impose sentence
on the man.
Kelly, seeing what was coming, nerved
himself like a python about to coil itself
about some animal it meant to crush, and
the next moment Furlong saw stars as he
reeled backward, stunned by a powerful
blow delivered over his left eye by the des
perado. His mouth was hurt, too, by the
prisoner's thumb. Mr. Furlong was picked
up and taken to a washroom 'to bathe his
head, blood trickling lrom his whiskers
The sentence was imposed, and the pris
oner went back to the jail, to be brought
again later for robbing an Olive street car
conductor named Pat Cullen of all his fares
and his watch. This charge would have
been passed generally but lor his assault on
Furlong. Judge Kormile made the sen
tence 15 years,so it cost Kelly just five years
to strike his attorney.

public. Germany charges that for seven years
the United States Consuls have been making
trouble in the islands. Tho German inter
ests are asserted to be more important than
the American. The Secretary of State re
futes all of these allegations. He charges
the German Government. with bad faith in
violating an agreement.
Baltimore, January 29. The Baltimore
Sun will to-morrow print the following
special dispatch from Washington: Of the
various documents transmitted by the Pres
ident to Congress explaining the course of
the Department of State in the Samoan com
plications, the letter of Prince Bismarck to
Baron Von Sedwitz,of the German Legation
at Washington, in November, 1887, and the
reply of Secretary Bayard through Minister
Pendleton in January, 1888, are perhaps
the most interesting, as presenting in a clear
and interesting way the respective claims
and contentions of Germany and the United
States. In his letter to Baron Yon Sedwitz,
Prince Bismarck says:.
Yon have already been instructed on a former
occasion to draw tbe attention of the Secretary
of State, Mr. Bayard, to tbe anti-German atti
tude observed by the American Consul General
at Apia, Mr. Sewall, during onr action against
the Samoau King Maleitoa. We have had a
similar experience with .the predecessors of
Sir. Sewall on all occasions, whenever we en
deavored, in view of the unsettled state of
affairs on the Samnan Islands, to obtain better
guaranties for the protection of German sub
jects and their commercial interests.
The reports of our representatives in Apia of
the last seven years repeatedly contain the
complaint that their American colleagues
show a tendency to interfere with our rela
tions to the Samoan Government, and to instill
the latter with distrust of Germany. The en
deavors Germany made In the Interest of the
establishment of a lawful and orderly condi
tion of affairs on those itlands have, without
exception, met with the opposition of the
American Consular representatives.
At the outbreak of hostilities among the
natives in 1S81, when the commander of His
Imperial Majesty's ship Mowe, on the requisi
tion of the German Consul at Apia, and in
agreement with the Samoan Government, as
well as with the municipal administration, oc
cupied Apia in order to protect the foreign
settlement, the American Consul, Dr. Dawson,
protested against tbe measure, and persuaded
the editor of an Apia paper, with whom he was
connected by friendship, to publish a series of
articles containinginjnrious statements against
the German Vice Consul and the commander
of His Imperial Majesty's ship Mowe.
The American Consul Canlsius bas been
pointed out to us as tbe author of tbe two let
ters which Malietoa addressed to His Majesty
tbe Emperor, under date of 18th and 25th of
May, ISSo. These letters contained complaints
with regard to tbe imperial representative in
Apia, the demand of ills recall, and an insult
ing critique of German military measures.
The successor of Dr. Canisius, Mr. Green baum,
made a proposition to the German representa
tive in everything encouraging the Chief Mali
etoa, and his attitude toward Germany.
A -WICKED AMERICAN.
He arbitrarily announced, in a proclamation
issued on the 11th of May, 18S6, the American
protectorate over tbe Samoan Islands, and
hoisted as a sign thereof the American flag
over the Samoan flag, a proceeding wbich was
disavowed by his Government. The encroach
ments of the present representative of tbe
United Statcs'have, as you know, repeatedly
given occasion to me to complain of his conduct
to Mr. Bayard.
In view of the friendly relations which have
continued undisturbed, for. more, than a cen-
tn.v TiAtwe.n fl.wnanw and th. TTnireil R..(m
it is remarkable tbat oh that remote realm of
islands, where neither America nor Germany
has any political interests to defend, we are ex
posed to the continued ill will of a scries of
American representatives? There arc no local
commercial rivalries which could ex
plain such a fact. Tbe American
element has not aspired to a
considerable commercial succes on tbe Samoan
Islands. The value of imports in Apia tbat
have gone through the bands of American mer
chants amounts, according to tho last state
ments of 1S85, to 8)2,000. tbat of German im
ports to S2J.i,000. In the export" the German
merchants participated with 280,000, the Amer
ican merchants with only J31,O0U.
The only large American firm In Apia,
Grevcsmihl, Crawford & Co., is now under the
management of two Germans, the American
fiartner, who lives in San Francisco, having
ately withdrawn. At tbe end of tbe last year
tbe staff of tbe German firms in Apia con
sisted of 46 employes, that of the American
firms only of 7. The German firms had estab
lished outside of Apia, in Ubola, and upon
other islands of the Samoan group, SO, com
mercial stations nd smaller trading places
the American firms not a single one.
The German firms in Apia owned in 1SS3 21
ships with 1,519 tons for the trado in the South
Sea, while the American firms had no vessels
of their own. Tho subjects of the Empire had
brought, by systematical establishment of
plantations, 7,155 acres under cultivation,
while American plantations do not exist, and
only about 1U0 acres of the property owned by
American subjects are cultivated. At the be
ginning of 18S6 there were 81 Germans and
Americans residing within the municipal dis
trict of Apia. Houses and property owned by
German subjects represented, as shown by tbe
list of assessments of municipal taxes, a valuo
of S17o,70o: those of American citizens only a
valuo of $32,000.
Germany has never made use of this mercan
tile preponderance of her subjects in Samoa to
secure commercial privileges, as tbe United
States have recently done in Hawaii by the
ratification of tbe recently renewed reciprocity
treaty of January 30.-1S75. We have always
maintained the principle of equality of rights
of nations in Samoa, and never aspired to polit
ical advantages. Moreover, oh the occasion of
the latest action against Malietoa, tne over
throw of whoso Government was incompatible
with onr dignity, we have given, befnre the
denosition of said chief, to both tbe Encllsh
nnd American Governments the assurance,
against wbich no donbt bas been raised, that it
is nut our intention to change anything with
regard to the relations of the treaty powers to
. REDRESS DEMANDED.
I fail, therefore, to find in the facts tliem
selves any reasons tbat could explain the con
tinual ill-will shown toward us In Samoa by the
American representatives of tbe past and of
the present, and I should bo thankful to Mr.
Bayard if he would lend me his assistance
in tbe investigation of thisstrange fact. Should
my supposition be right, tbat these difficulties
have their origin In the personal disposition of
the American representatives in Apia, and not
in their instructions, I am convinced that tbe
American Government will cause the necessary
redress to take place.
It connot be conceived that" consular officers
who do not respect tbe limits of their task, and
who cause by their conduct, without reason,
international ill-feeling between countries en
tertaining friendly relations to each other, act
in the sense of tbeir Government, with which
Germany, since the foundation of tbe Ameri
can union, has been connected by the tradi
We come, therefore, readily to the con
viction that it will suffice to submit to tbe at
tention of his Excellency, the Secretary of
State, a coherent view of tha attitude observed
by the different American consuls in Samoa in
order to be enabled to hope for the redress of a
misunderstanding which bas not fonndation in
the actual reciprocal friendly relations.
In his dispatch to Mr. Pendleton, Secre
tary Bayard resisted the contention that the
troubles in Samoa were due to the acts of
American consuls, and presented counter
charges agajnst Germany's representatives.
He reviews the various diplomatic negotia
tions, and says:
This Government has manifested in the most
unmistakable manner its desire to avoid all
possibilities of dlflerence with the other treaty
powers In Samoa, alike by its action in respect
nad to its consular representatives there
by the exercise of its moral influence
to discontinue and prevent native dissensions,
which had the Government of the United
States entered into any design of territorial
aggrandizement or of political control in
Samoa, they could have btcn accomplished, it
is believed, with much satisfaction to the
natives, and with little opposition from any of
them, long prior to the date of either the
British or the German treaty.
But another and widely different policy has
gnided tbe action of the United States in re
spect to tho native communities In the South
ern Pacific, and it is not, I apprehend, claim
ing too much credit for this Government to ex-
press the opinion that the example it exhibited
in treating witn oamoa as an inaepenuent Btaie
led to a similar course and a similar acknowl
edgment of native independence in that island
group by Germany and Great Britain.
Mr. Bayard also gives his version of the
conference of the representatives of Ger
many, Great Britain and the United States
in Washington in June 1887,'and says that
Germany agreed to make no new move in
Samoa until an agreement was reached be
tween all of the countries interested.
This pledge ha3 been violated. Mr.
Bayard states that he has uniformly in
sisted that the independence of the islands
must be maintained.

FRIENDS OP THE ORPHANS

School.- Sentiment of tbe G. A. It.
fFROU A STArT COnRXSPOSDEST.l
Harrisburg, January 29. The friends
of the soldiers' orphans are moving. -4 sub
committee of the G. A. E. General Com
mittee has the matter in charge on behalf of
that organization and in the interest ot the
orphans. G. Harry Davis, of Philadelphia,
and Prof. Wickersham, members of the com
mittee, were here to-day. H. D. Potts and
George Boyer, resident members of the com
mittee, are keeping a vigilant eye on the
progress of legislation relating to soldiers'
orphans. These gentlemen to-day con
ferred together on tbe subject. The fifth
member of tbe committee, J. B. Denwortb,
of Williamsport, was not present.
The gentlemen voice Grand Army senti
ment in stating that the schools shonld be
continued until 1895, but that there should
be no further admissions to them. In this
way the number of orphans in the school
will be reduced by the date fixed to
less than 100, none of whom will be
under 11 years of are. In round numbers,
there are now 1,500 children in the schools,
who in 1890 will be thrust nn the tender
mercies of the world, many of them without
parents or frleuds and with only the poor
house to receive them. The committee is
opposed to divorcing the soldiers orphans'
schools from the educational department,
and is in favor of cutting down expenses.
Mr. Davis, speaking of the feeling against
the syndicate controlling a number of the
schools, said it shonld not be permitted to
work injustice to the children. "Why," he
exclaimed, "to turn these children out in
1890 would be nothing less than another
slaughter of the innocents."
The State encampment of the G. A. B., at
its February meeting in Erie, is expected to
take action in harmony with these expres
sions. A bill will probably be formnlated
there, the provisions of which will be re
ported to the House by the special commit
tee of soldier members to be appointed.
There is no question but that when it comes
here so indorsed it will go through. It is
stated that when the bill for the extension
of the time of the soldiers orphans' schools,
weighted with its provision for the appoint
ment of a separate Superintendent, came up
in the Education Committee, there was a
strong effort to attach a proviso that the
Superintendent shall not contract with a
person who shall have a proprietary in
terest in two schools for the maintenance of

rrnojt a STArr cobbespondest.3
Harrisburg, January 29. The act
placing a penalty clause to the act to give
preference of appointment or employment
to honorably discharged soldiers, sailors
and marines came up on third reading, and
was amended in committee of the whole set
as to make it applicable to works in cities,
counties and boroughs. Mr. Bean also
offered an amendment making the penalty
not less than $100 nor more than $l,u00. the
money to go to the soldiers orphans'
schools, and the penalty to apply only to
officers convicted of the unlawful discharge
of appointees and employes. Mr. Beau
made a speech in advocacy of the amend
ment and the bill, in which he referred to
the small amount of legislation enacted in
favor of the soldier.
Mr. Skinner, of Fulton, opposed the bill,
but'desired it understood he did it as an old
soldier, and not as a Democrat. He wanted
no responsibility placed on the members of
his political faith for anything he might'
say. Then he said a great many things
against the bill, andthonght that as the late
war was not a Pennsylvania war the proper
place to go for 'special favors to veterans
Bepresentative Baker, of Delaware, spoke
in tbe same strain. He expressed himself
as surprisedthat any body of men should
ask for legislation. His friends at home
had asked him to vote against the bill. He
did not believe that those who wanted it
had carefully studied its provisions. If an
old soldier can lay claim to employment
without fear of refusal, why not go a step
further and provide that where a soldier is
a candidate for office all others must give
There was much iugglery wifh statistics
in the debate, and Mr. Skinner said the bill
was in a line with the schoolhouse flag bill.
He did not believe patriotism could be suc
cessfully lezislated into anyone. Mr. Bean
made an eloquent appeal for the old sol
diers, with such good effect that tbe House
passed his amendment almost unanimously,
