The attendance at Fiid.iy morning
sessions Is usually veiy slim, owing to
the fact that it is quite unusual for
anything moie than the perfunctory
lus-dug of hills on Hist leading to
tome up. Tills inoining. however, there
was a eiy large attendance, practic
ally all the members, excepting those
absent on committee Junkets, being in
their seats'. It was claimed they had
been induced by the fi lends of the
Vnughan measute to icmaiu over and
help pass the "speda! oidor" resolu
tion. They weie disappointed at hav
ing been kept over unnecessarily hut
ngrecd, so it is claimed, to bo on hand
Monday night. To those not tin the in
side, the large attendance was attrib
uted to the shutting off tit leaves of
nbsencc the day before. The knowing
ones let it go at that.
As only about a lif th of the iu mhers
vho stay away from a session take the
trouble to ask for a leave of absence,
the large attendance needed some ex
planation other than leveronoe for tho
i tiles, and upon inquiry the leal cause
developed as Indicated above.

Uncle Jerry Roth Raises n Lnugh.
Bills Intioduced.
C(U1 fiom a Staff CorittpomUnt,
Harrlsbiug, .March 2.'. With a i uun
tdiance us setlous as If it was being
worn at tho pieseiitatlnu of obituary
resolutions, your I'nde Jerry Roth,
thn venerable representative who is al
ways heading some high moral icform,
such as removing tho bar to pool sell
ing, arose lit his place at this morn
ing's, session of the house and pio
sented a bill "to encourage, mini luge
In this commonwealth and dellnlng the
terms nnd payment of license tees."
A titter run tlnough tho house nnd
then came a hutst of laughter, but
Pnelo Jerry, from his seat in the (list
tow. turned upon the house with a
scowl that, with the recollection of
similar laws having recently been en
acted In other states, had the effect of
squelching Its risibilities
Speaker Marshall looked oer the act
but never smiled, and the house was
about to accept as final that the meas
ure was a set lous and sensible one
when the thali spoiled It all by an
nouncing as the committee to which It
should ho refeired "law and ouler."
It developed later In Hie day that the
measure came from Chairman Slater,
tho genial thteo bundled tind ten
pound gentleman from Philadelphia,
who presides over the commit tto on
law and order. The hill tends nx fol

found near Conn?llsvllle yesterday with
a bullet hole in his light, temple, was
partially cleared up last night by the
lettirn to Altoona, ot 1). Maxwell, a

MiiNwell says he met AVesfs son In

after di Inking about town with two
other men, the p.uty went down along

on the giotiud. Maxwell says. West

through the temple, Indicting a fatal
wound. Maxwell returned to Connells

takn to tlie Altoona hospital, whore
the bullet was lemoved, nfter which he
was placed In Jell
West was found lying on the river

He would tell nothing about the

B Kscluaho Wire from The Wodunl l'rct.
Albany. Murch 22. Ooieiuor Odell
will go to New York and ho will see
Senator Platt nt the Fifth Avenue
hotel on Saturday afternoon. That
does not mean Mint tho governor Is
giving In. Probably he would not hne
decided to go to New Yoik at nil If
he laid not received an invitation fiom
the Lotus club to be pieseul at u din
ner on Saturday night. On the so'
oial occasions that Governor Odell has
called on Senator Platt In 2iVw Yoik
he has suited his own convenience. II"
has made his calls upon the semtor
Incidental to cither business.
All Albany Is divided Into two camps,
the Odell camp and the Platt camp.
Discussion 1 tins high. In the hotel
lobbies, in the ion Idors 01 the capltol,
tile one theme llercely debated Is the
break or, as some other people prefer
to call It, the "diffcieiice" between
Platt and Odell. The memhets of the
leglslatuie, however, aie not proclaim
ing which camp they Intend to Join:
,011 the contiaty they are keeping ills-
cieelly quite. Some of th -m plofess

nicely and coullaliy 011 Satuiday. Those
wlio have nothing to losr, no hills to
ffftei, do not vcntuie to make sin h
predictions, however, for 11 is teall.ed
that Uovetnor Odell has binned the
bridges. He has no ionise to puisne
but the one on which he has set out.
He has moused Hie lie of Senator
Platt so lbs politicians say It makes
no mrference now whether he gives lu
or not. No further political pieier
ment is In stoic tor htm if the senator
can help It fiovernor Odell, then, must
shake himself enthelj fier from Sena
tor Platt, and make hlniselt muster of
Mi.' situation. It Is either that 01 tele
gallon to the icglons of political Umbo.
Oovrriioi' Odi'll Ibis evening l-stied a
formal statement, in which ho declared
that he Is opposed lo a nietiopolltan
police bill, liecaus'. he does not bellow
that ptesent exigencies would Justify
Its enactment, find for the fuilhei rea
son that he does not sVllow It would
be constitutional.
Ho lei'ris to' the irspectlve positions
which have been taken on the (iiicstluu
by Senator Thomas C. Platt nnd him
