prevent the Keator bill fimu coming
before the house,
A fixed rule rullH for adjournment
on Friday morning lit ? o'clock. An
hour before that time, when the order
for resolutions was reached, Mr. Hert
ford, ItiHiirRi'tit, of l'hlludelpla, moved
to take the bill from me hands of the
elections committee, because of ths
committee's delay In noting upon It.
Chairman Orr explained that the
eommlttee hod considered the bill, but
did not want to come to u final agree
ment on It until the Focht bill came
over from the senate that the two bills
might be computed and a beurlng had
on both at the same time.
Mr. Rlxon, Insurgent, of Ulk, ie
marked that Quay was reported to
have repudiated the Koeht bill, and
that If this was true It would never
get through the senate.
Mr. Wayne, Democrat, of U'hlgh,
spoke In favor of the resolution, and
said It was futile to wait for the
Foeht bill. lie characterized the
Keator bill at not only representing
the will of the people In the matter of
ballot reform, but the concentrated
wisdom of an organized body of prom
Inent and Influential men who had
made this subject a special study.
"We want to emphasise and serve no
tice, now, that this bill Is the measure
the Democrats will suppoit. If the
esteemed leader of the party In major
ity here Is leported correctly, he wants
the Democrats to come forward with
a ballot rcfoim bill that the people
want. lie says he will support such
n measure, and Senator Quay Is a man
it his woid. We have come forwaid
with a bill that meets his require
ments and call upon the Quayltes to
suppoi t It."
The ayes and najs were called on the
adoption of the resolution, notwith
standing the warning from Mr. MIrs,
Quaylte, of Delaware, that the 10I0
i all would show "no quorum," and
eausa adjournment, with the first read
ing bills not et leached
Seeking a Quorum.
Forty-seven votes In favor of tak
ing the bill fiom the committee, and
only eighteen against. Immediately
Speaker Marshall ordered th doors
locked, as the lules requlie, and the
sergeant-at-aims proceeded to the
fiont of the desk to receive his In
stiuctlons to go out, airost and btlng
In enough members to make a quoi am.
This would mean that everybody with
in the confines of the four walls of
the room nt the time would have to
stay theio until a quotum was sa
eurert, and as most of the nbsont mem
bers had taken trains for home It
might bo late at night before the
doors Lould be opened.
There was only one way to escapo
imprisonment, and that was by fore
htalllng the "call of the house," which
must be made to verify the apparent
absence of a quorum. A call of the
house would teveal that while there
was no quorum, there were many mem
beis present who did not vote, and
ar, these members did not want to
be exposed, It was agreed to adopt
dilatory tactic, until 11 o'clock arrived.
Half an hour was yet to be consumed
and the cletks pioeeeded to consume
Mr. Hllss moved to adjourn. Some
of tho insurgents who wanted to show
up the QuaIte.s, who lef rained ftom
voting on the reform bill lesolutlon,
and who were willing to be imprisoned
for the remainder of the day to accom
plish this purpose, talsed the point
that the motion was out of order, but
Speaker Mat shall promptly ruled that
a motion to adjourn Is nlways In or
det The ilftks ptoceedert with the roll
call, but although they allowed several
seconds to elapse between each name,
they got through at ten minutes to
eleven. Thn some one called for a
vetlflcatlon of the roll. The reading
deik, as Mowly as he consistently
i ould, lead not only the names of the
membera who hart voted, but nlso V
enough who were not votlnsr or absent
altogether, to moro than make up a
quorum. Ho called tho laBt name juet
nt 11 o'clock, and without waiting for
tho announcement, Speaker Marshall
brought down his gavel and declared,
"Hleven o'clock having arrived, thU
house stands adjourned." The spec
tators wero particularly gratified.
Only one bill was presented at the
morning session, It camo from Mr.
Mnloncy, of Venango, nnd provides for
tlie caio of persons of aggravated In
tempeiate habits In asylums.
Remarks from the Oranges.
Representatives Hill, Tiffany, Chain
palu anil Oodchails presented a raft
of memorials from fanners' granges
in Susquehanna, Luzerne, Hradford,
Tioga, Northumberland and Incoming
counties against the new game bill, ex
tending the seasons.

savings funds and building and loan
associations, and regulating fraternal
beneficiary organizations weie lecom
A thousand copies each of the four
anthracite miners' bills weie oideied
printed for free distribution by Mr.
Ha worth, of Luzerne.
As a result of the sensational episode
of AVednesday night, a resolution wus
udopted today, ut the Instance of Mr.
Hall, of Allegheny, providing that a
mace, the recognized symbol of the
speaker's authority, be sccuied and
mounted on a pedestal at the right of
the speaker's desk, and that it bo ex
posed at all times when the house is
in session. The rules provide that the
sergeant-at-arms shall 'Ipresent the
mace" before attempting to exercise
tho power delegated to him by the
speaker to bring a member to obedi
ence of the speaker's orders. Some of
the memhcis took the resolution as a.
Joke, but Mr. Hall assured them It was
no Joke, but u matter of serious Im
portance. Mr. Voorhees acquiesced In
this, and expressed the opinion that If
the mace had been presented to Mr.
Hosaek, Wednesday night, he would
not have made any further resistance
to the spenker's order. Mr. Hosack
shook his head afllrmatlvely when Mr.
Voorhees looked over at him Inquir
ingly An amendment to the constitution
was proposed by Mr. Paul, of Phila
delphia, in the form of a Joint resolu
tion providing for petsonal registra
tion. It Is precisely the same lesolu
tlon as vetoed by Governor Stone two
jears ago. Subsequently the Supreme
court overruled the veto and Secre
taty of the Commonwealth Oielst,
under the provisions of the constitu
tion, advertised the proposed amend
ment. Should It again be adopted by
the legislature the amendment will be
submitted to tho people nt the next

NEW SEMI-MONTHLY PAY BILL.
Will Permit Mine Workers to Proceed
ns a Body in Prosecutions.
Special from a Slnfl Coriesponilent
Harrlsbutg, Man.li 1. The new semi
monthly pay law presented by Hepre
bentatlve Phllbln is designed to ovet -come
the constitutional defects which
threaten to cause the present law to
fall any time It Is taken befote the Su
preme couit. It also ptovldes that the
miners of any locality can by a majoi
Ity vote call upon the mine Inspector
of nny district to proceed against an
operator who violates the law
The main defect of the ptesent law
is that it attempts to Intel fete with
the right of conttact. This Is to be
ovet come by the addition to the section
making It unlaw ful to pay less than
twice a month of a new clause lead
ing, "Unless a written or printed con
tract specifying otherwise Is entered
Into between the employer nnrt em
ploye." The penalty In tho present act Is $200
for each offense. The newr act pre
scribes $r,0 for tho first offense; $200 for
tho second offense, and $200 and not
less than thirty days' imprisonment for
each succeeding offense.
Tho words "on ngrecment" are added
to tho clause which reads "no assign
ment of future wnges shall bo valid,
etc., "which clauso is designed to bar
another means by which the law can
Tho present law provides that it
shall be the duty of tho factory In
spector or his deputies to prosecute,
violators of the law, and In case of
their failure to do so, nny individual
may bring suit. Tho now bill makes
no mention of authorization of indi
viduals to prosecute but instead makes
It "tlie duty of the factory inspector,
or nny one of lib deputies, tinder his
direction, In the name of the common
wealth," t-xcept In the ease of coal
mines, where this duty shall devolve
upon the mine Inspector of tlie dls
ttlct, "upon jequest of a mnjorlty of
the employes of the locality whole
wages are withheld or postponed."
This will make it possible for the
Mine Workers' local unions to net In
the matter in a body, where hereto
fote it was neeessjiy for an individual
to take the Initiative.
