linrrlsburff, Mny 10. Tho lawmakers
ore now wrestllnir with tho IrKlalaitlve
apportionment question Alh'Khony
gains more In the new deal .than nny
county In the state, four reprem'tita
tlvoa and one senator. It Is therefore
a matter of pride t the Pittsburg mem
bers thtit Mw bill should be passed. The
Int-reasv In repivsentntloni la an Indica
tion uf how the county has Krown In
ret-out years ami tt In admitted ly both
parties 'that the county ahould have
what It la entitled to under the consti
tution. If a special bill could be paused
It would b done quickly, but o iten
erul apportionment Ih demanded and
here la where the compllcatlona arise.
Other counties In the Mate have not
grown like Allegheny. Some of them
have decreased wonderfully .In popula
tion and wealth. Few of the countlea
east of the Allt'thanto will lose repre
sentatives In the house, but a number
west of the mountain) that now have
two representatives will have only one
In the new apportionment. They do
not have the population and that set
tles It. much as the apportionment com
mittees would like to assign them their
Chairman Culbertson, of the house
legislative apportionment committee,
has made a careful canvass of the leg
islature. He would like to see his bill
passed as reported. Mr. Culbertson is
fearful of combinations that may be
made anions the dlsaruntled members.
Under the new arrangement Allegheny
county will have twenty members of
the house and five senators. Mr. Cul
bertson says moat of the Republican
leaders have declared for a new ap
portionment. Governor Hastings, Dave
Martin and Senator Torter, Senator
Fllnn. Chris L. Mngee and Lieutenant
Governor Lyon have Insisted from the
beginning that an apportionment bill
should be passed.
It Is assumed that, as Senator Quay s
representative, Lieutenant Governor
Lyon voices the sentiments of the Bea
ver county man on this subject. Gov
ernor Hastings In particular has urged
the legislature to make the various ap
portionments that the people demand.
He has steadily vetoed all the bills pro
viding for additional law Judges on the
ground that they should be created in
the Judicial apportionment bill. Such
prominent representatives as Messrs.
Mattox. Merrick. Nllea and North have
assured Mr. Culbeston they will sup
port his bill.
Whether this Is done or not, much
depends on a conference that the Phila
delphia delegation w'll have between
now and Monday. Philadelphia will
have the same representation in the
new apportionment, but some of the
districts will be changed. The popula
tion of the Quaker City Is being crowd
ed from the down town sections to the
suburbs. This Is due to the trolley lines
and the growth of business. The pres
ent members whose districts lose their
Identity are opposed to the new appor
tionment, and as they all have their
friends It Is easy to see how combina
tions could be madr that might bo
strong enough to defeat the bill.
Tho Quay-Martin Trouble.
The trouble between Senator Quay
and Dave Martin figures In the subject
as a potent factor. Some of the mem
bers claimed by both factions are hit
hard, but it Is believed the Martin peo
ple will get the worst of It. The Phila
delphia leader up to date, It is suspect
ed, has been assisted by western Penn
sylvania politicians and at this stage
he can't afford to be ungrateful. As a
sample of how the districts are changed
In Philadelphia, the Ninth ward, repre
sented by Mr. Rolles, and the Eighth,
by Mr. Scott, are wiped out. Both rep
resentatives are Martin men, although
they are credited with being supporters
The Sixteenth ward, now represented
by Mr. Abrams, the first man on the
roll call, Is added to John Fow's ward,
the Seventeenth. Mr. Abrams claims
putting these two wards together will
not make the district Republican, and
that Fow will still he able to keep It In
the Democratic column. Then tho
Tenth and Sixth wards, which are now
represented by Messrs. Beam and filter,
are put Into another district. Natural
ly, these Phlladelphlana have the sym
pathy of their colleagues from that city
In their troubles, and If they can swing
berstnn's bill It will have hard sledding,
the delegation with them against Cul-
Speaker Walton and Representative
Peltz, both of whom are Phlladelphlana,
think the apportionment should be
passed. When It Is remembered that
Mercer, Lawrence, Huntingdon, Hert
ford, Somerset and other western
counties now having two members will
lose one each. It Is but human that these
people should Join any combination to
defeat an apportionment. - These are
tho dangers that beset the bill.
There is also trouble over the sena
torial apportionment. Lancaster
county with two senators now Is given
one. The basis of representation la
105,000. The county has about 140.000
people, not the required percentage of
population to entitle It to two senators.
Lebanon county has a senator with tho
population way below the basis. First
the committee put Lebanon and a part
of Lancaster In one district, but Sena
tor dobln claimed this was unconstitu
tional. Then the bill was changed, giv
ing Lancaster and Lebanon each a
senator. It Is certainly unfortunate to
have about 85,000 people In Lancaster
unrepresented In the senate, but the
problem Is What to do with Lebanon.
Senator Landls, of , Lancaster, whose
district Is wiped out toy the bill, la not
worrying about It, as he says it will
Schuylkill county, with a population
of about 100,000, has two senators now,
and no charge Is made. Mr. Culbert
son says Schuylkill la more entitled to
two senators than Lancaster, though
both counties are very shy of having
the required 210,000 people each. Sena
tor Qobla can always be couatad on
fighting any nrrangoment that will
leave Lebanon county out In the cold,
and with tho senatorial courtesy In
operation In tho senate it Is a most
dllllcul matter to prepare a bill that
will be satisfactory to all. And yet
tho now senator from Allegheny de
pends upon a settlement of theso
situnbbleB, for which that (treat county
Is now responsible, but nevertheless
The Judicial Queatlrn.
There la also trouble over the Judicial
apportionment. 'Flue houao has passed
Ma bill over a mouth ago, but after
weeks of hrarlnK nd dlacuHskina tlhe
senate committee rejected the house
measure and substituted Its own. The
main difference between the two bills
la known to all who have followed up
the npHi'tlonntent question, In the
senate bill (Ireene county 1 made a sep
arate district. In the house measure It
la attached to Fayette as at present.
Senator Walton, of Greene, la chair
man T the senaito committee and ho
would rather see Green Rtand ulono
than le tied to Fayette.
Tho Elk, Cameron and Clinton dls
trlct is cHUMlng the1 moat trouble. Tho
house bIH wipes out the district, which
Is DeiiUK-rutlc and Is presided over by
Judge Mayer, of Lock Haven. The
Juilne la hacked by Senator Cochran
and Attorney General MeCormlek. Tho
dlllleulty bus been what to do with tho
countlea. Clearfield objected to taking
Clinton the Republicans claiming they
had enouuh people In Clearfield to en
titled them to a separate district. Cam
eron was twaddled on MoKean and Pot
ter, and there was eome -objection to
this arrangement. Jefferson county
people objected to have Clarion aa a
satteklte, but tho houne nnd senate
committees agreed on tills district and
no change was made. Senator Mitchell,
of Jefferson, Is keeping alive his bill
making a separate district of hla coun
ty. Should the Judicial apportionment
fall he hopes to be able to rush through
the legislature before the adjournment,
Several other bills of tho samo charac
ter are being held In reserve.
A Frightoncd llorso Dashes Into a Vohlcte

Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Montrose, May 10. An accident
which may prove fatal occurred at
Dlrchardvllle early on Friday morn
ing. A 14-year-old daughter of Harrison
McKeeby was driving down the steep
hill approaching the town; Immediately
behind her came Mrs. Charles Burr
and two children. While on the very
steepest Incline the holdbacks of the
harness on Mr. Burr's horse broke, and
her horse, frightened at the occurrence,
rushed wildly after the wagon In front.
Soon it was reached, and the concus
sion threw Miss McKeeby between the
wagon box and right front wheel. On
ran her horse, . kicking and Jumping,
closely followed by Mrs. Burr's horse.
Mrs. Burr and her two children were
thrown out In front of the Birchardvllle
poHtofllce and crushed through the
door. They were severely bruised, but
none save the small child of Mrs. Burr,
badly injured. Miss McKeeby, how

weekly review of trade tomorrow will
The ovent of the week is the demoral
isation of foreign exchnngea by enor
mous sales of bonds abroad. Besides a
aalo of 110,000,000 Manhattan and other
railroad bonds through the syndicate,
large purchases on foreign account
have been recorded for Home weekn,
so that the aggregate probably ex
ceeds 100,000,000 since the sale of gov
ernments. Safety for tho summer
means much for all bualness, and the
syndicate deems It so fully assured
that it dlHtributcs forty per cent, of
the money advanced by the associates,
which release a largo amount to stimu
late operations In securities and pro
ducts. Crop prospects alao have greatly Im
proved, and this Is of still higher Im
portance, as It will do much to deter
mine the character and volume of
all business after summer uncertainties
are over. In addition business Is re
viving, though the gain In great indus
tries is retarded by many strikes. The
volume of business represented by ex
changes for the first full week of May
Is 27.2 per cent, larger than last year,
and only 17.2 per cent, loss than In 1193,
but bond and speculative operations
have so swelled transactions here that
the gain of 14 per cent, over last year
outside New York Is for the moment a
closer indication of general business.
Railroads earnings are also better for
the last week of April, exceeding laBt
year's by 10.8 per cent., and the loss
for the month, compared with 1893, is
only 1J.7 per cent.
Tho successful bond transactions
caused flames of speculation which had
been dying out to blaze up fiercely.
Stocks have risen an average of 11.75
for railroads, end 62 cents for trusts,
and an easier money and safety for the
summer seems assured, with ground to
hope for good crops and larger earn
ings, the rise has a more substantial
basis than before.

Qunkertown, Pa., May 10. Bicyclers
In this vicinity have rubbed their wits

that they must pay toll over turnpikes
at the rate of one cent a mile.
The Qunkertown nnd Klchlnndtown
Turnpike company charges wheelmen
3 cents toll the round trip between

miles and a half. .It Is said that some
of the wheelmen when they approach
the toll-gate pick up their wheels, tuck
them under their arms and walk
through the gnte, thus avoiding the
payment of toll. Suits may likely grow
out of this plan of the bicyclers.

LOST WHILE TROUT FISHING
Cameron Cool Leaves His Father,
Judge Cool, in tho Woods for a
Short Time and t'pon Return

Special to the Scranton Tribune.
Plttston, Pa., May 10. Judge William
II. Cool, of West Plttston, who left his
home two days ago to fish for trout on
the mountain streams in company with
his son and two friends, Is missing.
Search has been made for him, but up
to this evening the party has been un-
ablo to locate him. Judge Cool yester
day morning went with his son, Cam
eron, on a fishing expedition. They
put up their team at Sharer's, a well
known place in tho Boar Creek region,
about fifteen miles from Plttston, and
going up the creek that runs through
Mr. Shafer's. lands, fished down
stream, but meeting with poor success
and it being near noon when they
reached e. spot about half a mile below
Mr. 8hafer's house, they concluded to
quit and return home. The Judge and
Cameron left the creek and started for
the house on foot; when but a short
distance Cameron hurried on to get the
horses ready, leaving hla father to fol
low more leisurely. It was about 1
oT.Iock when they parted, since which
time the Judge has been seen nor any
trace of him found.
After getting the horses ready, Cam
eron watted a reasonable time for hla
father to appear, then went to the place
where he left htm, but failed to find
him. Blooming alarmed he returned
to Mr. Bhafer's and the latter's thres
sons Joined him in a search of the coun
try for a mile and a half around. They
continued searching until 9 o'clock In
the evening, when the darkness com
pelled them to stop. It was oonjec-
tured that the Judge might have token
the road toward town, and at 5 o'clock
Friday morning- Cameron drove home,
but found no trace of his father. It
was the first intimation the family re
ceived of the strange occurrence.
Searching Party Organized.
H. T. Bowkley, with several dogs,
accompanied the Judge's other son,
Charles, to Bhafer's to continue the
search; later Edward Bowkley Joined
them, but up to Friday evening noth
ing had been heard from them.
Numerous speculations are rife as to
the Judge's whereabouts and condition,
but the region where he is lost Is a vast
wilderness, covered with a thick under
growth and a very few houses In that
section. As the Judge Is an aged man
and quite feeble, he iwould be almost
helpless in such a place, and great
anxiety is felt for his safety, as he was
out all night without food or shelter so
far as .known.
A second party of searchers, com
posed of O. B. Thomson, T. W. Kyte,
Lewis Jones and George Phillips left
this afternoon to go to Shafer's to as
sist in the search. Dr. T. M. Johnson,
the Judge's physician, was in readiness
if his services were needed.
Judge Cool is 88 years of age and
well-known throughout the Wyoming
valley. He has a large interest in the
Kingston Coal company and Is a heavy
stockholder in the Lehigh Valley rail
road and other enterprises.
Later The searching parites found
Judge Cool during the afternoon and
he was brought to his home In the even
