A Comprthensne Outline of the Important rortlons of

plete. It provides for a method of taxation

especially looked after. The penalties for
non-compliance with provisions of the act
are very severe. A synopsis is given below

the result of political intrigue and party dom
ination, hich deprives individual members of
this body of independence of thought and ac
tion and compels them to vote for a measure
trained and determined by an irresponsible
body outside of the hall of legislation. We,
therefore, decline to paiticipate in the passage
of this resolution, w hen participation is useless,
and leave the responsibility of its passage to
the caucus that framed and owned it.
Fourteen Democratic Senators' names
were attached to this, and the names of
Messrs. Sloan, of Indiana, and Betts, of
Clearfield, who were in the chamber, were
made conspicuous by their absence from the
While the man from Bucks had the floor
the Senator from Delaware moved uneasily
in his seat. Senator Delamater stepped
down and whispered to him. Other Eepub
lican Senators paid him brief visits.
SEKATOB COOPER'S REPLY.
While the Clerk of the Senate read the
Democratic protest every eye turned to the
desk, behind which the Kepublican ex
Chairman seemed to crouch like a tiger
hungry for his prey. As the Clerk spoke
the last name on the protest the form of the
Bepublican chieftain shot erect. The Sen
ate sat silent and the spectators in the gal
leries awaited, breathless, for the words that
came, low and intense at first, slow and
measured, but increasing in volume and
vigor until near the end of the brief speech.
Sir. Cooper said:
The protest of the Democratic minority of
this chamber, just read, is incomplete, and is
not as ingenious as papers of such importance
ought to be. It fails to state that for years
prior to the action of the Republican State
Convention and the action of the Republican
caucus of these two Houses, a large and re
spectable portion of the peopled the State had
been petitioning the Legislature for the sub
mission of the amendment prohibiting the sale
of liquor. If the protest had begun with the
action of the people, it would have stated the
whole truth, but failing to state that truth
it has left out the most important
element of the case. The distinguished
Senator from Bucks would not dare
take the position that the people of this State,
when respectable in numbers, have not the
right to demand a change in their Constitution
whenever that change is in harmony with and
not destrnctive of good government. I grant
that there may be extremes when it is the duty
of Senators and Representatives to deny a
change in their organic law when that change
means chaos in the Government. But there is
a request for a proper object, made by the peo
ple of Pennsylvania, and the Republican party
have simply said through their conversation
and through their caucus that the wishes of
the people in that respect should be obeyed,
and that they stand here ready to grant the
wishes ot the people without further committal
on the subject.
TO ESCArE RESPONSIBILITY.
The protest from the Democratic minority is
simply to escape from responsibility. It is
simply an attempt to bide away from whatever
may result from the approaching election.
The Republican party knows the responsibility
which it assumes. It realized it in State con
vention, when it pledged itself to submit this
question to ;he people. It realized it when, in
t o caucuses, as described by the Senator from
Bucks, it pledged Senators and Representa
tives to vote for this proposition. It realizes it
now, not knowing what the result will be, not
interested in what the result will be either as
Senator or Representative, but interested alike
with all other citizens, holding different views.
some votin? for. some votinu against. The re
sponsibility does not, Mr. President, go so far
as that, save as it applies to individuals. The
official responsibility, the thing which comes
through our duty as Senators and Representa
tives, stops when we meet the demand of the
people, and the judgment of the people is
sufficiently responsible for itself.
The Senator can, with rare sarcasm and elo
quence, point to the power of the little finger
of the man distant in Florida. He was simply
the first of the people and of the leaders of the
State to recognize that the machinery of the
party ought to be applied to carrying out the
wishes of the people, and the machinery of the
Republican party has been devoted, and wisely
devoted, to this purpose. Pray, will the Sena
tor from Bucks tell me what great parties are
for unless it is to carry out the wishes of the
people. They are great political organizations,
pushed to their purpose through voluntary
forms so closely allied to the legal forms that
they are Republican in shape and make-up, and
the whole purpose of the party is, as the whole
purpose of the people is, to carry out the
wishes of the people. We are bnt doing this.
NO LACK OF COURAGE.
We are doing nothing more, and in doing it
won't do to say, Mr. President, that we are
doing it without lack of courage; that no fear
of future responsibility will govern our actions;
that we can face the future with its doubts,
and its results unknown. We know that the
Republican party is responsible for the sub
mission of the subject, in obedience to the de
mands of a respectable number of people.
Knowing that, we come to the question of
voting upon it, and intend to vote for it as a
1 need not go into the action of the Demo
cratic party in Congress when the Morrison
and the Mills tariff bills were submitted, and
when all the representatives ot that party,
without any demand from the people, were
pledged to vote for the measure. The action
was final. Here we are simply pledged to sub
mit the question to the people, and the action
of the people will be final. It seems to have
been overlooked, that pursuant to the pledge
of the party, this amendment passed the last
Legislature, was advertised throughout the
Commonwealth, was made an issue at the late
election as much as anything could be made an
issue, and that the people did not find it neces
sary to change their political views because of
the submission of that question, and that the
Republican majority for President Harrison
remained very much the same as the majority
given for Mr. Blaine.
Senator Henninger, in an attempt to reply
to Senator Cooper, charged that the parties
who framed the submission resolution do not
want it to pass, and are trying to make it
Senator Delamater If the Senator be
lieves this, why does he fear the resolution?
Senator Henninger dodged the question,
and inquired: "Why all this tampering
with high license? Why the mucb-talked-about
bill ot the Senator from Delaware?"
He objected to the part of the resolution for
bidding the manufacture of liquor as legis
lation against the laws ot nature, as shown
in the fermentation of wine.
THANK GOD TOR IT.
senator ueiamater saia it was not neces
sary to add to the remarks of the Senator
lrom Delaware, but lie desired to sav to the
gentleman from Bucks that they were not
here to enact prohibition, but to submit the
question to the people. The Senator from
Bucks intimated that the Democratic party
might divide on the prohibition question.
Mr. Delamater thought it providential if
the Republican party could accomplish
this. The Bepublican party was acting in
good faith with the people, and if parties
split on the question, thank God for it.
A number of Democratic gentlemen went
on record for the benefit of their constitu
ents, but the only other Bepublican speaker
was Senator MacFarlane, who, in answer to
Mr. Henninger, said that the resolution
had been prepared by one who had been a
leader of prohibition thought in Pennsyl
vania for many years and who certainly
knew what the "Prohibitionits of the State
wanted. He referred to ex-Chief Justice
Agnew, of Beaver.
The vote on the amendment was yeas,
32; nays, 2. All the Bepublican Senators
voted tor it with the exception ot Messrs.
Beyburn and TJpperman, who voted against
it, and Keefer and Taylor, who did not vote.
The Democrats did not vote. Sloan, Demo
crat, of Indiana, and Betts, Democrat, of
Clearfield, however, voted for it, because
their constituents were in favor of it
As some opposition was manifesting itself
to the passage of the amendment abolishing
the poll tax, its consideration was postponed
and made a special order for to-morrow im
mediately after the reading of the journal.

Harrisburg, January 30. Senator
Hines and Representative Farrel each
talked to the K. of L, State Convention to
day in favor of his bill to abolish company
stores. The gentlemen were requested
to confer with Mr. Caffrey, the three to
frame a bill suitable to all. The Committee
on Besolutions, John Kelly, Chairman, re
ported in iavor of preparing a list of corpor
ations of the State, their capital, businessand
location, and that the State authorities
be asked to five an exact legal definition of
a corporation. The information will be
printed and distributed. The Australian
system of voting was indorsed, as was tbe
proposition to make election days legal holi
days. A committee of three on legislation was
decided on to remain in Harrisburg during
the session. The basis of future representa
tion is made one delegate for each 2,000
members, and there are 65,000 in the State.
The Cafferty coal dockage bill and
a general employes liability act are
favored. The most important work of the
convention was the preparation of a memor
ial asking for a Constitntional Convention.
It is claimed that under the Consti
tution as it exists workingmen
are debarred from obtaining the
same protective legislation against
individual employers as against corpora
tions, the Supreme Court holding that in the
former case the right of private contract is
invaded. Hence the necessity.

by striking out the clause validating as

on a vote of two-thirds of Councils, except in
cases when from one to three blocks remain

This pay sound like a strong statement,
and so it is, but nevertheless it is a fact;
hence an opportunity to buv Black Silks of
a superior merit much undervalue. Fine
and medium weight goods not big, showy
cords that are only filled with dressing, and
are not Silks, although they may be called
such these remarkable Black Silk Bar

Great Inventory Sale, Now On.
We shall commence our laborious task of stock-taking February X.
and as this seems to be a season for reductions we intend the few days
remaining to us before stock-taking to
ECLIPSE ALL .OUR FORMER EFFORTS
by offering everything, yes everything, at a price which will not only
astound everybody but beat anything within the "recollection of the
oldest inhabitant." We intend that our customers shall every day this
week reap the richest harvest of bargains ever known. The reductions
we have made are greater than anyone outside our store has any idea of;
we have not marked down prices in solitary or isolated places, nor yet
on any particular grades of goods, but wherever the eye can see, in every
department, will be found reduced prices, reduced to such an extent
that nothing whatever remains of anywhere near the original figures. If
some sales are greater than others then this sale of ours is the greatest
of 'em all. We've marked down every article and garment to a price
which you'll wonder at, to a price which will cause everyone who ascer
tains them and finds out the quality of the goods offered to be astounded.
We haven't a single thing in our store but what is a bargain greater even
than you think. Now, if you want anything we offer and want it cheaper
than you've any idea of come and see us as early as you can.
