A Legislative Investigation of the

Bj the Governor if the Inspectors Fail
In Their Duty.

also provides that in changes of grades where
existing streets cross cxistinc railways the ex
pense of the chance shall ha divided between
the city and the railroads.
Senator Hobbins has asked for a legisla
tive investigation of the management of the
"Western Penitentiary. A special commit
tee was not appointed, but the matter was
referred to the Appropriation Committee,
the Chairman of which, Senator Iteyburn,
intimated that the institntion wonld get no
more money from the State until the com
mittee is thoroughly satisfied with its man
agement. Governor Beaver says he will not
interfere with the Board of Inspectors so
long as their investigation is carried on in
public, but if the board fails to do its whole
duty he will act promptly.
rrnosr a ETArr connEsroxDEXT.
Haeeisbukg, February 7. " Senator
Butan, the next time yon assail me in open
Senate I will go through you to the extent
of my ability."
The speaker was Senator Bobbins, of
"Westmoreland. The reply to this thrust
came in quick and clear.
"If you only go through me to the extent
of your ability, Mr. Bobbins, you will not
go very far, and if I had done right I;would
have told the Senate that you faithfully
promised me before I left you this morning
that you would not introduce the resolu
tion." These pointed remarks were made to-day
after the adjournment of the Senate. The
exciting cause was the resolution offered by
Senator Bobbins asking for an investiga
tion of the "Western Penitentiary by a com
mittee composed of two Senators and three
Bepresentatives. The Clerk had hardly re
peated the last word of the resolution when
Senator Butan was on his feet to oppose it.
A FATE INVESTIGATION.
"The Board of Inspectors, taken from
among the best citizens of WesteYn Penn
sylvania," he said, "are conducting the in
vestigation, and two resident members of
the State Board of Charities are watching
it. I have telegrams from these asking that
no action be taken by the Legislature until
the investigation is disposed of, and I ask
for the sake of the prison officials, the Board
of Inspectors and the State Board of Public
Charities that this resolution be voted
At the conclusion of Mr. Butan's remarks
Senator Bobbins explained that he intended
no reflection on the institution, but it was
asking a large appropriation from the Leg
islature, and the Legislature ought to know
all about it. For the sake of the prison
authorities and the Board ot Inspectors as
well, he asked that daylight be let in. His
county was as much interested as that of
the Allegheny Senator.
Senator Beyburn, Chairman of the Ap
propriation Committee, said his committee
would necessarily investigate the peniten
tiary before granting the appropriation and
could take cognizance of this matter among
others, and thus save the expense of a
special investigation. He promised to invite
inc senator :rom estmoreland to partici
pate. BErXECTED OX THEIE IXTEGBITT.
Senators Gobin and Delamater moved
that the resolution be referred to the Com
mittee on Appropriations.
Senator Newmyer stated that he failed to
Bee the necessity for the resolution, and was
quite willing to trust the Chairman of the
Appropriation Committee. The investiqa
tion now in progress was open and public,
with no attempt at concealment. At this
stage of the proceedings a motion for a
Legislative investigation was a reflection on
the integrity of the gentlemen engaged in it.
Senator Gobin On what authority is this
Senator If ewmyer On the authority in
herent in the Board of Inspectors. There is
no attempt to screen anything, and the
motion is consequently premature.
Senator Delamater said he very much
doubted the wisdom of the resolution, but
did not feel like standing in the position of
benator Gobin thought the State ought to
participate in the investigation. Xothing
was known concerning the trouble at the
penitentiary, but the resolution, which re
ferred to the newspaper reports, and the
Legislature ought to learn if these are cor
rect. DIFFICULT TO EXTLAIN.
Mr. McLain, of "Washincton, considered
that it would be a very difficult matter for
a Senator to explain to his constituents his
reasons for voting down such a resolution.
Senator Butan explained that there was
plentyof time for the Legislature to investi
gate, if necessary, after the conclusion of
the present investigation. The resolution,
he declared, was a personal reflection, and
was intended as such, and he moved for an
indefinite postponement. Senator .New
myer seconded the motion, but it was voted
down and the resolution referred to the
Committee on Appropriations.
Just before the question was put Senator
Bobbins, with much feeling, took exception
to the last remarks made by Senator Butan,
saying he had no right to attack him in that
manner. He then sat down, to renew his
remarks to Senator Butan later, with the re
Governor Beaver savs that, in his opinion,
everything is proceeding properly in the in
vestigation at the Western Penitentiary,
and, as long as it proceeds publicly and
openly as at present, there is no need for in
terference on the part of the executive
branch of the government The whole
matter is in the hands of the Board of In
spectors until they indicate that they are
not doing their duty, in which event the
Governor says he will act, and act promptly.

Haeeisbubg, February 7. The farmers'
friends were out in force to-day, but the city
members were somewhat puzzled by them,
as some wanted a bounty on foxes, weasels,
minks, polecats and hanks, while others didn't.
The debate, nowever, was enlivened by a great
deal of wit and humor,;and after some particu
larly bright repartee the Speaker himself re
laxed aud forgot the gavel in his good right
The prettiest home thrust of the debate was
made by Mr. Evans, of Bedford, whose head
and beard are frosted with the snows of many
Captain Ilassett, with a great assumption of
dignity, arose on the Democratic side while Mr.
Evans was speaking and inquired: "Mr. Evans,
do coons do any damage?"
'Some kinds of coons," responded Mr. Evans,
"did great damage to tho Democratic party last
Captain Hassett enjoyed tho laugh as well as
many a one.

Haeeisbtjeo, February 7. Ex-Go vernor
Curtin and the other members of a commit

$12,000 of the amount.
Governor Curtin savs New York is coins to
appropriate $100,000 for the purpose. "They
say up thcrft" he said, "that New York has
more soldiers buried at Gettysburg than Penn
sylvania has, and why? Because I was there to
send our boys home by carloads to be buried."

storekeepers are likely to bold a convention

Committee of the K. of L. will try to unite

Distress After Eating
Is one of the many disagreeable symptoms of
dyspepsia. Headache, heartburn, sour stomach
iammess ana capricious appetite are also
caused by this very widespread and growing
disease. Hood's Sarsaparilla tones the stomach,
creates an appetite, promotes healthy digestion,
relieves headache, and cures the most obstinate
cases of dyspepsia. Read the following:
"I have been troubled with dyspepsia.' I had
but little appetite, and what I did eat disti essed
me, or did me little good. In an hour after eat
ing I would experience a falntness or tired, all
gone feeling, as though I had not eaten any
thing. Hood's SarsapariUa did me an immense
amount of good. It gave me an appetite, and
my food relished and satisfied the craving I
had previously experienced. It relieved me of
that faint, tired all-gone feeling. I have felt
so much better since I took Hood's Sarsaparilla
that I am happy to recommend it." G. A.
