The entire session of the House on
Monday evening was devoted to the con
sideration of_ the general 'game and fish
bill (which his been before the House at
three previous sessions), without complet
ing it, on second - reading.
At the morning session of the House on
Tuesday pension, revenue and appropria
bills being under consideration, the
following among others was passed finally:
An net to provide for the cdrrbnt e -
penses of the State Board of Agriculture,
by appropriating $4.2000 thereto.
A number of other bills, making appro
priations for various' institutions in differ
ent sections of the State, were dicposed
of at this session; some going through
while others were defeated. A diaper-

representatives to economize in ail direc

' An act defining fit posters and extend
ing the duties of he Board of Revenue
Commissioners was under considemtillin
when the House adjourned on Tuesday
morning, and being resumed at the snor
t) n session the discussion was continued
f° two hours, when the bill passed third
rea ing and was Laid over for final passage.
The \ Senate was called to order wa Thee
day evening, but adjourned without trans
acting any business.
At the morning session of the Senate
on Wednesday, that body concurred - in
the resolution \ of the House providing for
the final adiournment Of the Legislature
on the 24th of May. It was feared that
the Senate might old the resolutions or-'
delay passing upon\it, in the expectation
that the session would necessarily have to
be extended to the firskof June ; but its
concurrence in the resolution clinches the
question, and it is hoped that both Houses
will now set to work and close up the bus
iness of tire , session in as satisfactory a
manner as possible.
At the afternoon session of the Senate
on Wednesday the Clerk of the, House
presented the House oil pipe bill:\ This
is the bill which had originated in\ that
body and had- passed it by a majorliyof
one vote, as noted in a former letter 'of
this correspondence. Mr. Latnon called
rot-lite reading of the bill. After thii bad
been done he -raised the point of order
that the bill was of a . similar character
to the Senate bill on the same subject
which had been considered and defeated
by the Senate during the present session
of the Legislature, and that it was not
competent nor parliamentary for the Sea;
ate to again consider the bill. President
Latta decided .that the point was well
taken. He based this decision on rulings
made in the Pennsylyapia Senate in 1851
and in 1870, 'and in precedents afforded
by the rules and decisions of Congress
and of the British Parliament, the latter
running as far back as the year 1000.
Jettersoa,s and other manuals-were clear
on the subject. Setiatiat Stone, Peale,
Green and Fertig appealed from the de
cision of the chair. The first three gen
tlemen' making the appeal, with Senators.
C'erbett, Dill and Hawley, spoke• in its
favor, while Senators Cooper and Herr
maintained the decision of the chair. -The
discussion was continued until the hour
of adjournment without coming to a vote.
In the House at the morning session on i
Wednesday, an act repealing so much of
the law oC 1814 as fixes the time for clos
ing the soldiers' orphans' schools; was
passed finally by a vote of 144 to 1. •
An act fixing the salaries of . Judges of
the several judicial districts of the State,
coming up on third reading, occupied the
attention of the house during tbe remain
der of the morning and a goodly portion
of the afternoon session. The bill as it
passed third - reading 'and, was laid over
for final pas.sage, fixes the salary of the
Philadelphia and Pittsburgh judges at
$5,000 per annum. the Harrisburg jalges
at $4,900, and all others at $4,000.
The House bill to enlarge the criminal
jurisdiction of justices of the peace and
aldermen passed finally and was sent to
the Senate. It provides that justices and
aldermen 'may hear and determine the
several offenses - and misdemeanors men
tioned in the 30to, 31st, 44th. 46th, 69th,
720, 97th, 103 d,,112th, 140th, 148th

In the Senate on Thursday morning,
I immediately after the reading of the jour.
nal, the consideration of the appeal front
the decision of the chair deciding the
point of order against the consideration
of . the free pipe bill well taken, was re
sumed. The entire morning session was
consumed in the discussion of the point
of order. The argument was opened by
Mr. Peale, who maintained the appeal
and claimedthat the decision of the chair
was erroneous. Messrs. Hair, Jones, Law
rence and Newmyer sustained the posi
tion of the chair, and Messrs. Corbett,
Hawley, Ermentrout and StOue favored
I the appeal: The decision of the chair was.

This artion finally disposes of the free
pipe bill for this session.
At the afternoon session of the-Senate
on Wednesday tho bill which had' previ
ously passed the House, entitled, "an act
to ascertain and appoint the fees to be re
ceived by the sheriffs, coroners, prothono
taries, clerks of the several courts, regis
ters of wills, and recorder of deeds of this
Commonwealth, except counties contain
ing more than 120,000 inhabitants," was
passed finally. This bill, in which" the
imple of Bradford county have been tak
ing considerable interest, has had rather
a rough time in the Senate, and had it
not been for the watchful care and able,.
earnest advocacy of it by Senator Davies,
would not have been passed by that body.
When it came over from the House he
had it referred to the general judicary
committee, of which he is a member, and
the bill was promptly reported affirma
tively the next day. When it came up on
final passage 'yesterday, Senator D. ad . -.
dressed the Senate in its favor, as he did
when it' was on' second-reading, and at the
ConcluSion of his, remaaks, which were
forcible and to the point, the bill wag
passed finally by the conititntional major
ity, 26 votes'. '
In the House, during the different
stages - of progress of the bill, Speaker
Myer rendered most efficient service in
pushing-it forward; and when the vote on
the final passage was taken there, his in
fluence in. securing the necessary consti
tutional majority was known and felt.
For the enactment of _this law, which is
now in the hands -of the. Governor, by
whom it trill no doubt be signed, the peo
ple of Bradford county, as well as the
State at large, are perhaps more, indebted
to - Speaker Myer and Senator Davies than
to any other two men in the 'Legislature.
A number of oppasition.bills were con
sidered in the House during the mooting
and afternoon sessions on Thursday, while
several of a local character were also act
ed upon, but none of them wore of spe

Enrron likkrirtra ! Kansas at present
is nova desirable place for mechanics and
laboring men in quest of employment. I
found the hotels and boarding houses
filled with this class of people waiting for
something to "turn up." . On my route
from Springfield, 111., to Topeka, .1 made
the acquaintance of a party ofl a six or eight
mechanics—middle-aged married men,
whose hopes and impulses were 'quiclv
ened and intensified with that not entirely
innocent malady, the " Western fever..
Their destination was Great Bend, a
point very near the center of Kansas.
They expected to work there until fall
and then send for their families. I left
the cars at Topfilts, and as the train
moved from the station silth this happy
party,' from the bottom of, my heart. I es=
pressed to them my strongest wishes that
their great expectations.would be 'more
than realized. With all the 'artlessness of
children; they had confided to' me their
plans ; bad. talked to me by the hour of
their families, going into tiresome details
of the precocity of some of their children,
their courtships and marriages; had
shown me photographs of 'members of
their dwn ratify' and finally had exacted
promises from me, that if in the coming
years % should visit . "their town,' I
would stop and renew the acquaintance
we had already formed. My heart had
warmed wonderfully towards these hon.
est-hearted, confiding men. About ten
days afterwards I found them returning,
utterly,dlsheartened, to Kansas City, Mo.
They had been unable .to find aey em.
ployeaeat. I saw scores of idle young
men who looked as if they had made but
their first venture from home, and a set
of more hOmesick youngsters I never saIV.
The larger portiiin of them seemed to 'be
on short allowance ; even those who had
money enough left to return home were
ashamed to do so. Such parties, of course;
send back discciuraging reports of the

ble than other matters, but I refer to them
as a Startling to oar hard-working citizens
against abandoning situations in the East
at even verymodente wages with the aim
of bettering their condition by going West.
The truth is, the labor supply greatly ex

Men with some means at their command
to "go up andpossess the

thousand settlers, it is estimated, have
already taken up their homes in 'Kansas
the present year. :The greatest influx is
through Kansas City. To see the wonder

if the wholh nation ware in motion. As
you advance into the interior you encounx

wagons. Towards evening they "damp"
for the night, their horses and cattle
either "carralled " or fastened with lari
ats ; the Children frolicking on the grass
while their elders are busily Aeparing

aboriginal life has an almost irresistible
fascination about it. As a fellow-traveller
expressed it, "it is but the linked sweet

he continued, 'rean3 you let us have

Mn. EDITOR : YOur correspondent un
the head of "Comtlromik* still ad
heres to his original proposition : that
butter and.oleomergarine are of the same I
material: This we are unwilling to con
cede ; and although there is a close re
semblance in appearance, this is a case
where appearances are wonderfully do
captive ; and how any one having any ap
preciation of the delicacy of really fine
butter can substitute such an article, is
more than I can conceive. - I once tasted
it entirely unprejudiced—in fact, supposed
it to be a very fine article of hurter—and
such a taste I never experienced before
and never hope to again.
I agree entirely with 'your correspond.'
views in regard to adulterations oil
food, The coloring of butter and cheese
is a useless and expensive prictice 7 not
for the.purpose of deceiving any one gen
erally, but to, produce an article of a par
ticular style to suit the fancy of custom
era. Cheese uncolored is about the shade
of slink, and never yellow like butter.
The amount paid annually by the cheese
manufacturers of this country for coloring
material amounts to thousands of dollars,
and the question has Often been discussed
in the American Dairyman's Association
how the public taste and dehiand in this
respect could, be correctedond this useless
expense avoided, but the problem is still
unsolved, and so long as the demand is
for colored cheese so long' producers will
have to conform to the practice. .
The article used is universally Apnato,
or its extracts in some form, and when
unadultenited is entirely harinlese nei

butter or cheese. I think the practice of
coloring butter is not very general, tho'
it exists to some- extent in our county,
& Richardson would not have
an agency at Towanda for selling their
coloring material.- It is undoubtedly the,
poorer class of buttmmakers that ute it.,
I will close this eftiele bigiving the
best recipe I know of for good' colored
butter at all seasons of ;the year : Good
'grade or . thoroughbred Alderney cows
(sometimes called Jerseys) :•good pasture
and pure water for summer; nice, sweet,
early-cut hay, witrgrain and roots for
'winter; some arrantement for separating
the cream from the milk quickly (we pre

Now, that alone takes out an exceeding
ly opptessive provision in the law of eigh
teen huitdred and sixty-eight, so far as my
county is concerned. For instance, when
they commence issuing their executions
against a defendant, they are generally
Multipled within the sane day, and seine
times the same hour to a 155-ge extent. and.
frequently the same 'plaintiff will have a'
number of - writs ncainst the defendant at
the same time. Ile may live thirty miles
from the court house to travel. The sheriff
is entitled to mileage upon each one of
those writs issued by the plaintiff hgainst
the same defendant. That makes the see
bill oppressive, and oppressive to tin
alarming extent. So that creditors and .
defendants suffer thereby. Now, this pro

time a, number ,of writs, that the sheriff
ilia!l not draw inifeaglibon hut one of the
writs; if other patties than the same plain
tiff issues writs upon the same defendant,
the sheriff draws mileage upon those writs
under this bill. , Now I claim that 'that is
right. The intention and spirit of the !are
is that sheriffs, shall travel for so twiny
cents per mile. It was never untended thet
he should draw thirty cents per mite fir
traveling, and the - old fee bill permits hits
to do so, and that frequently.
I can give other reasons for the passage
of this bill. It is demanded in my section
of the country, and it is in other sections
of the einitioe• reel there is no measure
before the Senate this
.winter to • which the
,public attention is so universally attracted
as this measure, and whenever. those of us,
who are here representing- the county, re
turn-home we are confronted'hy the quPS - .
Lion. "What are you doing with - the fee
VI?" „They say, "We are officers that
are growing rich and opulent under the
present system, while all the rest of us are
compelled to, come down to hard pan : and
weetsk, you that they shall be .compelled to
come down to bard pan a little the same as
the rest of the cenortunity." It is- providle
ed that this shall not affect any person now
in office: If the men who are opposing
this do not want these offices, with the re
duced fees they need , not take them;
others as good as they will accent these
offices under the fee bill, as proposed in
this community, and will improve their cir•'
cumstances thereby. '
I do not desire to take up the time of the
Senate in discussing the necessity of the
law. It reduces fees ahhut thirty per - cent.
from what the act of 18118 has fixed it, and
the applicants for the various positions
will not be diminished. You-will have the
aamepumber of efficient persons ambitious
to serve the public, as under" the law of
1868, and you will materially lighten ;the
heavy herder now carried by the geitral
public. • "
* *. Mr. President, I trust hat
Senators will give a careful consideration
to this bill before casting their votes. lam
satisfied, Mr. Preeidient, that if we reflect
the sentiments of nine-tenths of the peo
ple. I will without fear of contradiction say
-so of the districts 'I have the honor to rep=
resent, that this bill will be -passed. And
that sentiment is not a weak sentiment.
They have a strong and deep conviction
that the act of 1868—That this modifies and
changes—is oppressive in some .of its 1
features. These officers have: acted from
1820 odd -to 1868 or about that period of
time under a fee bill giving them less
emoluments than the bill .before us does,
and when this tee bill is attempted to be
passed reducing it from what it' was placed
at a period of time when everything was in
a far different state than now, there is a
hesitation' and bloting op the part of some.
I find on a caretul consideration of the
Vote cast when this bill was on third. read
ine, that, a large Proportion of -the votes
cast against it came trot my side of the
chamber, and a" large proportion of them
came from Senators not affected by - the
bill. If I have_ counted correctly, out of
the ten votes c4t against it, eight are RC
publieners and six of them are not affected
by this bill. I ask Senators on toy side of
the chamber, in this
. ..year !when we 'are
-about to enter into a political struggle that
may decide for years the political complex
ion of the State( when we are-charged tm
jusrly,,as I have always cleimee, and as I
believe, but nevertheless charged with de•
parting from the twill and wishes of the
masses at times, can we at this day, whew
we are approaching the importaat• political
crisis, when here is-a hill directly affecting
the masses of the people—and when, as I
cl4im. is large proportion of them feel that
the law, as it now•stands, is oppressive,
and oppresiiie to an extreme degree, when
many a man has been sold- out, id his lit
tle home gone, r and •he finds, i stead of
paying his debts ; it has gone to swell the
emoluments of 'an officer, who makes him

before this Senate, ! Republican Senate;
asking for relief, and asking Us to reduce
and cut. down these fees by which officers

oppressive features, but still baying je t.,4l

that which-the / law gives them,

will blame thtfOfficer for that ; the remedy
is here. Has anybody pointed' out a- Sin-

in-his bill that is now- before us? I have
, not beard it yet; So far as its friends - tare
concerned-they have been :willing to accept
suggestions - and amendailds ; none have.

Now, of course I only speak for my own
district. Ido ask Senators upon my side
of the chamber to examine this bill care•
fully and see if it is not right, and Pee if it
does not remove en evil, and if it does re
move an evil, then we should cast our vote
for it. lam giving' my judgment, not with
the intention of influencing other Senators;
they must act upon their own responsibil
ity ; but in my view of the, ease it is
political necessity, so fat at my district is
concerned, that this bill should be passed,
and when I find the minority in this:cham
ber arraying themselves almost unanimous
ly in favor of it, I ask my, side- of the cham
ber if they can afford to defeat this bill?
