After a Debate in Which
IS AS SILENT AS DSUAL.
v ine f uolic school Appropriation increased
Half a Million.
iTHAT 5EW YORK TKIP WILL BE TAKEN
Xbe CmJe Crossing Bill Killed in the Senate br
(FBOMA STATr COBEESPOXDEKT.l
Habbisbdeg, April 25. State Chair
man Andrews covered himself 'with clory
to-day by having the appropriation for the
public schools increased from the amonnt
fixed in the general appropriation bill,
1,500,000, to 2,000,000 per year. The
House was practically unanimous for the
increase, notwithstanding which there was
a spirited debate, listened to attentively by
the State Chairman, "who didn't participate.
The principal opposition to the increase
came from Chairman Dearden, of the Ap
propriations Committee, who, while per
sonally in favor of the increase, endeavored
to show that the condition of the State's
finances wouldn't justify it Captain Bill
ingsley opposed it because he did not think
anyone wanted it. He was quickly cor
rected, but not convinced on that point by
Captain Skinner, of Pulton, on the Demo
cratic side, and Captain Evans, of Bedford,
on the Bepublican side.
Mr. "Wherry, who is heartily in favor of
the increase, took advantage of Chairman
Dearden's statement or. the State's finances to
show how the Idle money in the sinking fond
might be put to some Rood use. Mr. Hall re
plied to this, but the remaining talkers con
fined themselves strictly to tbe merits of the
THE FIX A2TCES OF THE STATE.
Chairman Dearden said the State's financial
officers estimated tbattbe revenues under the
new revenue bill would bo between 11,000,000
and $12,000,000, that in making appropriations it
would not be sate to count on more than tbe
minimum. Tbe general appropriation bill
called for 7,000.000. and. tbe House otherwise
approDnated $4,600,000. The appropriations
were therefore 5600,000 in excess of the amount
tbe executive departments considered safe.
Tbe committee, however, had worked with a
view to tbe fact that the Senate would amend
tbe general revenue bill to divert from a quar
ter to a half million of dollars yearly from the
sinking fund to tbe general fund.
Chairman Dearden told tbe House that the
Appropriations Committee had cut tbe aggre
cate ot the demands upon it $2,000,000, some
thing be declared unparalleled, and he warned
the House that if it increased tbe school ap
propriation tbe Governor, who could not under
the law cut this item, would have to cut else--n
here to the amount of at least $500,000.
Mr. Kratz called Mr. Dearden's attention to
the fact that last year the estimates were
Si 000, 000 out of tbe way, and that the Governor
paid 1.000,000 more tnan tbe law required into
the sinking fund. Mr. Dearden replied that
his information then, as now, came from the
executive departments, and was official. He
was compelled to guide himself by it.
Mr. Wherry told the House be favored an
increase of tbe school appropriation, but he
wanted the House to understand that the Ap
propriations Committee had pared the appro
priations for the public and charitable institu
tions down to tbe quick, down to where it hurt,
and tbe House had made itself responsible by
approving the work. He called attention to
his resolution for tbe disposal of the sinking
fund as the sword to cut the gordlan knot of
There are," he said. S2.GS6 37K lying idle in
tbe sinking fund. This sum will be largely In
creased in tbe years to come unless tbe law is
materially modified. This large sum
BENEFITS ONLY THE FEW,
and the corporations having tbe nse of It, and
the benefit amounts to from SS0.000 to $100,000
annually. Had my proposition been taken up
to make use of these idle funds, it would not
be necessary to pare down the money for chari
ties to where it hurts, or .deny money to the
After Mr. Hall bad made a statement of the
conditions and requirements of the sinking
fund, Mr. Wherry obtained leave to print a re
ply in the form of a tabular statement to the
effect that an annual income of $350,000 to the
sinking fund, which includes the $250,000 re
quired by the constitution, will pay all accru
ing Interest and all the State loan as it falls
due, and thus wipe out the entire debt when
matured, beside leaving a large surplus in the
Treasury. In conversation, Mr. Wherry said
tbe new revenue bill, as amended In tbe Senate,
would produce more than 5600,000 a year for
the sinking fund.
One interesting feature of the succeeding de
bate was the manner in which Mr. Capp cor
nered Dr. Walk, of Philadelphia who, in the
interest of economy, didn't want the appropri
ations increased, but who didn't even think of
economy wnen advocating what Mr. Capp, a
lawyer, called tbe judicial salary grab. Colonel
Bean, in making an eloquent plea for the ap-
Sropriatlon, brought a blush to Chairman An
rews' cheeks by contrasting him with Mr.
"The gentleman from Philadelphia," said
Colonel Bean, "represents the executive de
partments in resisting this just measure; tbe
gentleman from Crawford represents the peo
ple in demanding it." The round of hearty
applause luai jounwea aeepenea tne color m
Mr. Andrews' checks. The previous question
was moved while Captain Billingsley was try
ing to make a second speech in opposition to
tbe bill, and it was carried with only six op
posing votes in spite of his earnest protest.
Then tbe amendment which Chairman An
drews had proposed was carried with a rush.
The appropriation for schools will therefore be
made 2,000,000 a year, for the Senate has al
ready oven a measure of indorsement to Sen
ator Martin's proposition to the same effect.
BOUSD TO GO TO NEW TOEK.
A Final bnt Futile Attempt to Prevent the
rraoM x sTArr coEBESroxDisr.j
Habbisbubg, April 25. Mr. Capp, of
Lebanon, made an effort this morning to
knock out the New York trip. He moved,
seconded by Mr. Kratz, of Montgomery,
that when the House adjourn to-morrow it
be to meet again Monday afternoon. Mr.
Capp supported his motion by a speech, in
which he denounced the George Washing
ton excursion to Gotham as a junket, a dis
grace, and several other uncomplimentary
things. An effort had just been made by
t Dr. Walk, of Philadelphia, to prevent
v leaves of absence and rescind such as had
'" ' been granted, on the ground that the ab
sence of members was an obstruction to
Mr. Capp commented on this, and called
the attention ot the House to the fact that
the absence of the Legislature for three days
In New York was a much greater obstruction
Mr. Kratz said it had cost tbe House $5,000,
two igars ago, to spend one day at Gettysburg.
'How much," he asked, "is it going to cost to
spend three days in New Yorkr"
Mr. Craig, of Philadelphia, a member of the
Committee of Arrangements, said the New
Y.ork trip wasn't going to cost more than $9,000,
and as everything had been contracted for tbe
Legislature might just as well go as stay. Tbe
, money would bave to be paid anyhuw. At
this point tbe Speaker stopped tbe discussion
by telling the House tbe motion was not in
order at this time, but would be at the close of
the session, to-morrow night.
XHE AEEAJfGEMENTS COMPLETE.
. The boat which tbe Committee of Arrange
ments has secured is one of the finest in the
Hudson nver service. It will be stocked with
all the necessities and luxuries, liquid and
solid, proper for such a trip. Tbe Legislature
will participate in tbe marine parade on Mon
day, and bas secured the grand stand in front
of tne Fifth Avenue Hotel, New York, from
" which to view the parades on Tuesday and
Wednesday, Only a small minority of the
Legislature is opposed to the trip, and only a
small minority will stay away. A great effort
has been made to expedite business In order to
mako both the excursion In honor of the
Father of his country and final adjournment on
May 9 possible. Chairman Andrews has been
almost constantly in his seat holding mem
bers in hne, and he and the Speaker
both freely express tbe opinion that
the Legislature cannot afford to stultify itself
k. by refusing to go to New York now, after bav
- Jng voted to go and after having provided tbat
tbe expense should be secured In the general
.appropriation bill. The question raised by
members who are anxious to please captious
-,ana critical constituents Is admitted by Bepnb-
i"-""c"aaDy tueranJi ana me to ue a
troublesome one, butat the same time the opin
ion is unreservedly expressed that It is right
and proper for Pennsylvania to be so repre
sented on such an occasion, and when it can be
done at so small a cost they do not think that
anyone has much right to complain. Besides,
the money spent will not be an additional bur
den on tbe people of the Commonwealth, as
the State taxes are paid by tbe corporations
and the money at interest.
SETTLED FOB GOOD.
The question was settled finally by the
adoption by the Senate this morning and by
the House this afternoon of a concurrent reso
lution that when the Legislature adjourn this
week It adjourn to meet on Thursday morning.
Senator Delamater wanted to make Wednes
day the day, but being assured by Senator Bey
burn, the mover of the resolution, that the
public business would not suffer materially, he
acquiesced in the original resolution. Senator
Alexander, of Fulton, however, denounced the
excursion as a reckless waste of public time.
When tbe resolution came up in tbe House
this afternoon Mr. Capp moved to amend to
make tbe day for reassembling Monday. Mr.
Craig, ia opposition, told about the preparations
for the Trip, and said the Legislature's ship had
been assigned to a good place in tbe first
squadron of the marine parade. Mr. Capn s
amendment was voted down and the Legisla
ture, when It adjourns to-morrow, will not re
assemble until Thursday.
Mr. Lytle spoke strongly against the excur
sion, denouncing it as a steal, and Mr. Dearden
considered it a waste of money and time. Mr.
Craig received hearty applause, led by Chair
man Andrews, when he said there were men
opposing the trip who tbe records would show
had actually consumed weeks of the session In
speechmaking, and it was only due to those
who bad to stand tbe Infliction that thev be
given the three day' vacation in New York.
Colonel Bean, of Montgomery, Mr. Fow, of
Philadelphia, and Dr. GatchelL of Lancaster,
spoke in favor of tbe excursion.
AMENDED OUT OF SHAPE.
Tbe Fow License Transfer BUI .us it Now
rrEOJI X GTXTT COEBXSrONDEST.J
Habbisbubg, April 25. Mr. Fow's
license transfer bill has been amended so
that its parent will be unable to recognize
it. It has been transformed into a supple
ment to the Brooks high license law, and
amended to include many features of bills in
troduced in the House early in the session, but
negatived by the sub-Committee of the Ways
and Means Committee of the House.' The
Democratic Senators freely charged to
day, as a result of the amendments,
that the Republican party was trying to
strangle prohibition with high license, while
Senator Cooper responded to Senator Boss, of
Bucks, that he ought to be more consistent in
bis statements of tbe Republican position.
Early in the session ho charged Republicans
w ith the crime of trying f o force prohibition on
the State, while now he wanted to saddle on
them the crime of killing it. Mr. Cooper said,
as he said early in the session, when tbe Demo
crats would not believe it, that the Republican
party is not pledged to prohibition, but to tbe
submission of the question to the people.
The Fow bill, as amended, provides for the
trausfer of licenses to the legal heirs of de
ceased, and on the sale or transfer of saloons;
prohibits minors from participation in the sale
or delivery of liquor; permits security com
panies to go on tbe bond of liquor dealers; per
mits security to be obtaineu from any part of
the county in which a licensee resides, and pro
hibits the licensing of more than one saloon to
each 500 of a population in any city, borough or

Some WHIinmsDort Lumbermen Who Wish
to be Given n Show.
ITKOII X STAFF COBBESFOXDEXT.
Habbisbubg, April 25. A delegation of
lumbermen from Williamsport is here in the
interest of a Senate bill now in the House,
which permits the chartering of the streams
for 20 miles from their source. At present only
branch streams can be so charterea and im
proved by dams, etc., for tbe forming of pond
freshets to float out lumber. Tbe bill grows
out of the fact that on Kettle creek, in Tioga
and Potter counties, a firm that owns a large
section of hemlock timber land is practically
shut out from market by a competitor who owns
a small block of land on the stream below
them, and who prevents their damming tbe
stream to obtain sufficient water to float out
their timber on the plea that it is a main
stream. They claim his object is to make them
sell to bim at a low figure.
The question of their right to dam the stream
within 20 miles of its course is in the courts,
but tbey desire to make the matter doubly sure
by obtaining legislation on the subject. They
are hacked by a petition signed, by gentlemen
representing five-sixths of the lumber interests

Labor Measures Being Killed In the Legis

rFEOM X STAFF COBBESrOHDENT.l
Habeisbueg, April 25. Three of the
five labor measures indorsed by the Knights
of Labor Legislative Committee have met
death in the Senate. There were two com
pany store bills. Senator Hines' bill was
defeated yesterday. Representative Fan-el's
was reported from the Senate Judiciary Gen
eral Committee this morning, with a negative
recommendation. The semi-monthly pay bill
was also negatively reported by tbe same com
mittee, and the dockage bill is in seemingly
hostile hands. The two measures which
seem to have a chance of success are the fac
tory inspection bill, which is now on third read
ing In tbe House, and tbe employers' liability
bill, which is on the special second reading cal
endar. Mr. Garvey. one of the members of the
Knights of Labor Legislative Committee, said
to-day: "We know ithe gentlemen to thank
for tbe loss of the measures we were advocat
ing, and we will not forget them when they
come up for re-election."

Habbisbubg, April 25. The grade
grossing bill was killed in the Senate, to-day,
by a vote of 23 to 17. The Allegheny Sena
tors voted against the measure. The friends
of the bill said its enemies were trying to
Mil it in the interest of the Baltimore and
Ohio. The enemies of the bill said it was
being pnshed in the interest of the Pennsyl
vania Railroad. Their sentiments were
summed up by Senator Thompson, of
Dauphin, who said the bill was
in tbe interest of existing railroads, which
were nut required to change thefr grade, and
which would therefore be given a virtual
monopoly because of the fact that new roads
are required to-eievate.
Tbe argument was conducted from a Phila
delphia standpoint for tbe most part. Among
the 23 negative votes are those of Senators
Grady and Cooper, wbo got over to tbe win
ning side before tbe result was announced, in
order to be in a position to later move a recon
sideration. All of the Democrats except Wil
son, of Clarion, voted against the bilk
