Habkisbubo, May 2. Prominent mer
cantile men came from Philadelphia this
morning, and from Pittsburg this afternoon,
- to use their influence on members of the
Senate against a reconsideration of the grade
crossing bill. They were lold some
things about Senatorial courtesy, and
said that if the bill had to
be reconsidered on that score
they wanted assurances that it would not be
passed finally. Before they went to their
hotels to supper they had made up their
minds that they were safe. The Pittsburgers
present are "William E. Schmertz, Presi

Senator Upperman received to-day from the
Grain and Flour Exchange a copy of a resolu
tion by telegraph, thanking him and Senators
Newmyer and Steele for tbeirrotes against the
bill, and asking them to defeat any specious
amendments or reconsideration of "this ne
larious bill," which would keep new railroads
from entering the city.
Senator Newmyer has received a letter from
Mayor McCallio, who opposes the bill because
it will keep railroads from entering the city.
'He says the act of 1S68, which provides that no
railroad shall enter upon or cross any street,
lane or alley of any city without first obtaining
the consent of Councils, in ample protection
for all cities in respect to grade crossings. He
also says that if there is any real need for such
legislation there is no need for confining it to
cities of the first and second classes.
Ihe bill was not called up for reconsidera
tion, this evening, and while it looks as though
it were dead, it will require some close watch
ing to keep It dead.

"MB. COOPEfi IN A DILEMMA.
Not Terr Plain Sailing for His Supplement
to the Brooks Act
fritOM X ETAJT COHKESPOXDEiT.1
Habbisbtjbq, May 2. Mr. Cooper, the
future Collector of the Port of Philadelphia,
went to the Senate to-day to see how the
members of the Upper House feel about his
supplement to the Brooks high license law,
constructed on the basis of Mr. Tow's li
cense transfer bilL Mr. Cooper found that
it was not as plain sailing as he would have
liked, and he didn't call up his measure, which
Is on final passage. He couldn't find the con
stitutional majority required for final passage,
and concluded to wait until a few absentees
were here or a few opponents won over.
Mr. Brooks, of Philadelphia, Is not weeping
because Mr. Cooper seems to be in at least a
temporary dilemma. He Is opposed to the Dela
ware county statesman's move. The first ex
cuse for tampering with the Brooks law was
that the courts could not under It grant
license transfers. This was rendered useless
by the fact that the Supreme Court of the
State decided that the law of 1858, covering
that point, was yet in force, and left it in the
discretion of the lower courts to grant trans
fers. Then it was claimed Mr. Fow's bill was
made necessary by the fact that Philadelphia
judges refused to grant transfers, thereby do
ing great injustice in many cases. The grant
ing of a transfer recently knocks the bottom
out of -that, in Mr. Brooks' opinion.
If the measure comes over from the Senate
for concurrence, the father of high license will
fight it and hopes to defeat it there, if it is not
hung up in the other branch. Mr. Brooks ad
mits he doesn't know why Mr. Cooper persists
In tampering with the liquor law at this time,
but thinks perhaps the gentleman of peren
nially hopeful temperament Is trying tore
deem pledges made to the liquor people.

Habbisbubg, May 2. The Senate Fi
nance Committee has had the bill of the
grangers to equalize taxation so long in its
hands without taking action that Senator
Brown, of York, who is State Treasurer of
the Grange, to-day almost succeeded in
having the measure placed on the calendar
on a motion for the discharge of the com
mittee from its further consideration. The
Senator from York told the Senate that many
thousands of people who feel that great injus
tice is being done them by the unequal tax
burdens levied, had asked for the passage of
the proposed legislation, and that the bill,
whether passed or not, was enutledlto a chance
ip the Senate. A portion of the Governor's last
Tiessage was read to show that he, too, recog
nized that taxation was unequal and urgently
h need of improvement in view of the dlspro
tortio.iate burdens placed on real estate.
Sectors Cooper and Delamater antagonized
the jes'.tion of the Senator from York, whose
mot n was lost, although it received 25 votes
igalnrt 12 &ga -t it, one less in the affirmative
ban is required to discbarge a comznitteo
ttula the consideration of aTsribject.
The Democrats voted as a body with Senator
Brown. r uyone of whom, except Scbnatterly,
was present. The following named Republi
cans voted in the same way: Harlan, of Ches
ter; McCreary, of Erie, McLain, of Washing
ton; Mylin, of Lancaster; Newell, of Bradford;
Packer, of Tioga; Bobbins, of Westmoreland;
Bbannaller, of Butler: Watres, of Lackawanna:
Williams, of Huntingdon, and Woeds. of
The Democrats think the Republican leaders
have put tneir party in a hole by their action
against giving the grangers fair play on a bill
which all the grangers in the State have indorsed.

Jones' bill for the protection of the Court
House from defacement was passed to-day. ,
Representative McCullough succeeded in hav

for it for third reading to-morrow.
Senator Newmyer's bill, to reform certain
rules of court procedure, was killed In the
House after a letter, signed by Judge Arnold
and a number of Philadelphia lawyers, had
been read. Their objection was not that the

Habbisbubg, May 2. Kepresentative
P.auck, of Lancaster did not agree to-day
with Representative Hangman's statement
that Quay had won four of the Lancaster
county delegates to the State Convention
against Magee's two. Amos Zeigler, he says,
is claimed by both and was supported by both.
Another Lancaster Representative, who doesn't
care to be quoted, says Mr. Zeigler is a Magee
man if he is anything, and that the delegation
stands three to three. Really, however, says
this gentleman, there was no fight in tbe
county on either Mr. Andrews or Mr. Quay,
and the six Lancaster delegates are all for
Boyer for State Treasurer. The fight, he says,
vas against E. K. Martin, who Is charged with
being a kicker, and as snch a. snnnarter of
Buckalew, Stewart and Wolre.
The gentleman quoted says there are two
factions in Lancaster county, known respec
tively, if not euphoniously, as the bull ring and
the hog ring. They originated abont ten years
ago, when Levi Sensenig, a cattle dealer,
wanted the contract to supply the county in
stitutions with beef, while bis rival, John K.
Menser, the present Prothonotary of the
county, wanted the contract to supply them
with pork as well as beef. These two areyet
-.- leaders of the factions, though Louis S. Hart
and J. Hay Brown are probably the active lead
ers at thepresent time of tbe former faction,
,while E. K.MartiD and Elwood Griest are the
active leaders of tbe latter. Bull ring against
hog ring was the way the late struggle is de
scribed as having shaped itself.

Habbisbubg, May 2. In the Senate to
day Senator-Bates succeeded in having his
amendment to the soldiers orphans' com
, mission bill, which was defeated last week,
inserted. Senator Gobin at first opposed it.
' but after considering it more carefully favored
it. Both the commission bill and the annro-
-. priation bill now provide that the commission
shall enter Into no contract with schools for the
care of soldiers' children, but shall rent estab-
- lishments and employ managers, teachers and
other officers to run the schools.
This does not prevent the commission from
renting syndicate schools and employing their
" present staff, but Senator Bates says he is not
opposed to this, these schools having produced
'i,KOTiie excellent result. He says he is notop
"")posed to these schools so strongly as many, but
is opposed to the system. Sow the owners of
the schools labor to make a profit. Under the
amended bills, if there is any profit, it will go
to the State.
