A STRONG DEFENSE
Of the Acts of the State Sinking
Fund Commissioners is Made
BI HON. HENRY HALL OP MERCER.
Mr. Wherry Asks Some Perplexing Ques
tions, and Insists That

Mr. "Wherry's resolution on the sinking
fund question again came up for discussion
in the Legislature. After an elaborate de
fense of the Commission by Hon. Henrj
Hall, the measure was again referred to the
Ways aud Means Committee by almost a
strict party vote. The soldiers orphans' bill
waf amended in the House, giving the State
control ot the Commission.
TFBOX A STAFF COKBESPOXDEST.J
Habbisbubg, March 25. "When Hon.
Henry Hall sat down to-night he was ap
plauded so vigorously that the Speaker
rapped for order. The applause all came
from the Republicans. Mr. Hall had just
nuished defending the Sinking fund Com
missioners from Mr. "Wherry's attack, and
though his voice was weak from his illness
when he began, it gathered strength and
volume as he proceeded. Mr. Wherry had
changed his tactics, and to-night offered the
following resolution, which Mr. Dearden
moved to refer to the Ways and Means
Whereas, The Sinking Fund Commissioners
hare, during the fiscal years 1BM7 and 1&S7-8, .
.purchased State bonds at a higher rate than
the market rate, thus violating the act of Feb
ruary, lSTfii aa amended by the act ot June,
1SS3, making such purchases at rates of from
one-eighth to two and five-tenths per cent
higher than the market rate at the time fixed
by the act as a limit to the purchase of such
bonds, and that the amount of such excess
has been in the aggregate at least S7.000-, and.
Whereas, The said Sinking Fund Commis
sioners sold In December, 1SS7, and January,
1S8S, $1,000,000 of United States bonds, which
were invested in the funds, which sale was in
violation of the act of 1SS3, which declares that
such bonds shall only be sold when the money
shall be required for the extinguishment of
the public debt; and
X BIG CASH BALANCE.
Whereas, The proceeds of these bonds were
not necessary for the extinguishment of the
pnblic debt, for the reason that when such
bonds were sold there was already in the State
Treasury a cash balance of over $1,490,000. and
that after the said bonds had been sold, al
though $300,000 worth of State loans had been
purchased there still remained in the fund, not
reckoning the sale of the said United States
bonds, a cash balance of more than
$1,100,000; and that, at the close of the fiscal
tear, after the S ate nad met all the obliga
tions of the fund, and had purchased nearly a
million ot the State loans, in addition there
still remained in the Treasury, not reckoning
tbe proceeds of the sale of such bonds, a cash
surplus of over 1.100,000, thus demonstrating
that said sale of United States bonds was not
necessary for the extinguishment of the public
debt, and has not been necessary for the ex
tinguishment of the public debt upjto the pres
ent time; and
Whereas, the bondsmen of the said Com
missioners are liable to the State for at least
the amount of Interest lost to the State up to
date, by the sale of said million dollars worth
of United States bonds, which now lies a use
less surplus in cash in the State treasury,
amounting to 6Q,0U0 at least, for the excess of
premiums paid on the purchase of State bonds
above the legal limit, the then market rate
amounting to at least $7,u00; therefore be it
Resolved (if the Senate concur). That a
committee of five members of the House and
three ot the Senate be appointed to investigate
said transaction of the Sinking Fund Commis
sioners, and other transactions of the Commis
sioners for the past two years, and to report to
the Legislature by bill or otherwise.
WHEBBT WON'T BE TBEASUBEB.
Mr. "Wherry, in introducing the resolu
tion, reiterated the charges made in the
pamphlet that was laid on the desks of the
members last Friday.
He stated that the cause for the loss
alleged was either gross ignorance, disre
gard of the State's best interests, or worse.
It was admitted by at least one of the
State's accounting officers that a mistake
had been made, and this had been denied by
no one, not even the Governor, in the state
ment made by him to the newspapers. He
held that the bondsmen were liable for
every dollar of the loss shown. Mr. "Wherry,
after arraigning the Sinking Fund Com
missioners at some length, and submitting
the now noted pamphlet as a portion of his
remarks, concluded bv denying that there
was anything political in the attack, saying
"In the presence of this assembly, and of
the Most High Judge, before whom I ex
pect one day to appear, lam not, and will
not, be a candidate for State Treasurer, and
would not accept the office."
Mr. Hall made the speech of the evening
in opposition to Mr. "Wherry. He referred
to that gentleman's change of tactics, as due
to the discovery by him that the informa
tion called for "by one of his resolutions of
Friday was furnished monthly by the State
Treasurer, and by law' made accessible to
every citizen of the. Commonwealth.
MB. HAIL'S DEFENSE
of the Sinking Fnnd Commissioners was in
line with Governor Beaver's, and he read
letters from the State's fiscal agent, and
from Drexel, Morgan & Co., to the effect
that it was a very wise act, viewed from all
standpoints. 2so one, of course, could fore
see that as the State became a seller of
"United States bonds the United States Gov
ernment would stiffen a falling market and
cause a boom in these securities by becom
ing a purchaser. Mr. Hall said th Sink
ing Fund Commissioners, before taking the
action criticized, had consulted the most
eminent financiers of the nation.
Mr. "Wherry stated that he had charged
no moral delinquency, but thought the ad
vice under which United States bonds were
sold might have come from a State Treasury
ring of bankers, who have State deposits
and might want more.
Mr. Hall, when Mr. Wherry demanded
to know their names, said he could not give
them all, and the present Sinking Fund
Commissioners could not.
"The then Auditor General visited Phila
delphia, and I believe Ifew York, and con
sulted personally and by letter the best
financial minds of the country. That gen
tleman's lips," said Mr. Hall, "are sealed
"I have not," said Mr. "Wherry, "forgot
ten that ad fact, and that has been the
greatest stumbling block in my way in this
matter. Speak no evil of the dead, is a
sentiment as strong in my breast as in that
of the gentleman from Mercer."
ymEBBY ASKS FOB IKFOBMATION.
Mr. Hall said he did not want the State
to run a broker hop, as he believed Mr.
"Wherry's resolution of Friday provided.
He admitted that tie Sinking Fund Com
missioners were liable to make mistakes,
but no more so than the gentleman from
Cumberland, nnd the author of the anony
mous pamphlet which, Mr. Wherry had
adopted as his own. He accepted Mr.
Wherry's etatemen that he was not striving
for political preferment, but the party be
hind him probably did not feel jnst that
Mr. "Wherry called the attention of the
House to the admitted fact that the Sinking
Fund Commissioners had sold $1,000,000
worth of United States bonds for the pur
pose or purchasing State bonds without
having a contract for the latter.
"Is this business?" he asked. "Would
Drexel, Morgan & Co., who commend the
sale of United States bonds by the State, and
its purchase of State bonds, nave done the
one without making sure of the other?
"Would they sell United States bonds them
selves to let the monev lie idle in their
Vaults? All I ask Is that the State's finan
cial agent, and those responsible for the
State's finances, use the same judgment that

Mr. Dearden closed the debate by refer
ring to Mr. Qalclazer, of the Philadelphia
.Record, as the author of the pamphlet used
by Mr. Wherry, and the motion to refer the
resolution to the Wavs and Means Commit
tee was carried by a" vote of 91 to 43. A
number of Republicans voted with Mr.
Wherry and the Democrats. Simpson.

robbing those who quietly submitted to

through them, securing two gold watches aud a
small amount of money.
The robbers were recognized as James Hey

the officers, and this afternoon they were ar

The best of the best, the finest of
the fine, everything as near perfec
tion ' as human skill can make.
Quality, fit, make and the abnor
mally low prices are their recom
mendation. We've been famed for
years for our superb styles and high
quality goods and we intend to make
this season further and still greater
inroads with the business done by
high-priced merchant tailors. We'll
convince gentlemen that it is pure
folly for them to pay outrageously
high prices for their clothing when
they can get here goods better in
. every way for anywhere from one
third to one-half less money. - z-
Forty large tables piled high with
long pant Suits and Spring Over
coats, to say nothing of large quan
tities of fine Pants and Coats. Suits
in all the latest styles, and you have
choice from' an almost endless vari
ety of the newest and handsomest
materials. Our buyers, who were
the earliest in the market, scoured
every Clothing center for the best,
while other dealers were asleep, and
the consequence was that they
scooped in the finest of the fine,
leaving later buyers to take what
our buyers left. Depend on it there
is no room for improvement in our
goods and our prices will, as usual,
be the lowest possible. "

ities with the fact that all our goods afe

and you have the secret of our enor
