Pittsburg, with Allegheny an assuted
ally, and when tho Joint committee
o" the fcnati! and house sits tomorrow
nfternoon to hear tho rpprcsentntlvoi
of the three second class cities on the
Muehlbionner hill, it will learn that
the ofilclal committees of the throe
affect imI cities do not want the act at
ill, but prefer to have the present net
.otnlncd with a few Amendments.
The only ones now counted upon to
'peak In faor of tho now bill aio the
antl-lilnnite's of Pittsburg, repre
sented by tho chamber of commetcs
committee and such individual citi
zens of Allegheny as Senator Muchl
bronner nnd thu active supporters ot
his act cm bring on here today. With
the defeat of tho "ilppor" feature a
practically foregone conclusion In tho
senate. It Is questionable If the Muehl
bronner act will be urged very stren
uously, nt least for tho present.
Will Require Force.
Nothing but a most vigorous applica
tion of the whip, it is thought, wilt
force it through the upper house, and
on this account it is likely the local
lieutenants will hesitate to nttempt its
passage until United Slates Senator
Quay returns from Flo-Ida.
Tho last reports are that Senator
Quay is still a very sick man and may
not bo able to come north for several
weeks. The friends of the Muehlbron
ner hill, It should be borno in mind, do
not want tho bill unless they can havo
tho "ripper" feature preserved.
This momentary chango in the sec
ond class city legislation matter was
brought about in a conference this
nfternoon in ono of tho senate commit
tee rooms. The Scranton delegation,

terview said: "I do not earn If Mrs.
Nation smashes every joint in Topeka.
I sympathize with her. I hope she will
close up the saloons of the city. As an
officer of tho law, though, it 1b my
duty to an est her every time she cre
ates a disturbance or destroys prop
erty. If we had tho rlgnt kind of stato
officers It would not be necessaiy for
Mrs. Nution to do what she Is doing."
