stood In the houxo bill. Uy lesloilug
the beer lax to JI.CO a banel, enough

abolition of the bank check tax.
A compiomlsQ bus been proposed in
the matter of (ho tobacco tax. The
l.otu'ij Is willing to let the additional

gentile, but tho proposition Is to change
the legal sUe of package, o that only
the same number of packages to a

sec-tils likely to tarry Its point in tho

Should the ripper bill be defeated

themselves In n position where It would
be expedient to have denllngs with a

Harrlsburg, Pa., Feb. 2C Once mom
the air is full of "rlppor." but llttlea
news of a deiinlto nature Is at band,
other than that Senator Quay arrived
here this afternoon and declared him
self unqualifiedly In favor of the
Muohlbronnnr bill, "ripper" and atl.
Senator Quay, Governor Stone, At
torney Genoial r.lkln and Insumnca
Commissioner Durham spent tho after
noon at the executlvo mansion sizing
up tho pro-rippcr strength. Tonight
the doubtful ones are being brought
In and reasoned with.
Tho insurgents claim that tho rlp
pei ites ate shy twenty-four votes.
P.eptesentatlvo Hitchcock, Uio lcadur
of tho Schuylkill county delegation,
declares that ho Is against the "ripper"
and that hli throo col!eaguoi nro alno
disposed to voto against it,
Senator Quay would say nothing as
to the status of tho "ripper." "I hiive
only como on tho ground. Ton know
more about it than I do," -tvas his re
joinder to the direct question eia to
what he thought of tho chances of -the
"ripper" being pass;d.
The bill t, 111 probably b reached on
the second tending calendar tomorrow,
but It Is possible It will go oer till
next week. This w III depend In a groat
measure on how tlio noses count up In
Quay Dlsownn Focht Bill.
Senator Quiy created somewhat of
ft ripplo by ileidarlng tonight that ho
know nothing whatever ot the Focht
ballot icform bill which the anator
from Union claimed had the endow
ment of tho otganlzatlon.
Senator Quay sas lie has not seen
the bill and lepudlates It u a Quay
measuios. if tho Republicans do not
produce a meastuo which will bo ho
ceptable to the peoplo Senator Quur
sajs ho will be in favor of any other
measure that does.
Domociutlo niembeis of the hous
had a caucus tonight In the Dolton and
voted to oppose tho "lipper" and tho
Pocht ballot law. Tho attendance) fig
ures were not given out. Tho Insut
geuts caucused on the "ripper" and, of
course, declared against it. They nisei
declared at the conclusion of tho cau
cus that all tie Ir members) ticim hi

Major James Molr and A-;Iluat
City Solicitor David J. Davis aro hcroj
working In favor of tho Muehlbronner
bill. The fact that Mayor Moir, with
out any rissurnnco or being appointed
recorder. Is ligorously favoring st
nieasuio which will tin him out ot
olllce, Is serving as an Impresslvo ob
ject lesson of tho dlro need of Scran
ton for the Immediate passage of a
complete todo ot' fcecond-claso city
In a statement to Tho Tribunes core
spondent, which was eagerly nougiu
by all the pto-rlpper papers, Mayor
Moir said ' If I had any assurance ot
being appolnteil recorder theio would
bo a constant danger of that fact leak
ing out and thut dinger would stand
ns a bar to my taking an actlvo and
open part In advocating the passage ot
th 'ripper,' for ciiould tho discovery
lomn that I was making misrepresen
tations, my efforts would hnvo n.
boonieiang effect. Therofoie, when t
say that X am ptomptcd to urge tho
passage of the Muehlbionnen" bill noa
through any selfish motlvo but by dm
sincere belief that Scranton must havo
this act, and have It at once, I expect
my statement to bo fully ctedltcd by
anv man who thinks.

In anticipation of my motives being
Impugned by the antl-rlppeiltes. I clu
not want to niipe.tr as trying to at
