Special from a Start Correspondent.
Harrlsburg, Feb. 8. At this morn
Ing's session of the bouse, tho bill In
troduced yesterday by Mr. Phllbln pro
vldlng for u department of mines and
mining, was reported from committee
by Mr. Reynolds nnd referred for print

pica, that he wanted to have It printed.
Jin later had a resolution passed pro
viding for the printing, for five dl-

Is not Impossible that the measinu will

had an opportunity to look It over and

Tlio bill to regulate the weight of

and selling of short-weight kegs was
ulso reported from the committee.
No attempt was made to override
the county and townships committees
veto of the new Quay county bill when
It was reported to the house this morn
ing. The opinion prevailing here Is
that as Schuylkill was opposed to It,
the organization could not afford to
bo for It, because of the fact that
rlchuylklll Is regular while Luzerne Is
almost wholly outside tbu fold, and can
only have such thlngx as It especially
does not want. The negative report of
the committee was of course expected

Washington, Feb. S. Among the

which he said:
"The new Cuba yet to arise from the

whether the constitutional convention
