whether Filipino sailois will enter into
competition with American sailors is
laised by the order of the piesldent,
w hlch provides that natives of the
aichlpelago enlisting in the navy shall
locelve only half the pay of men en
listing from this tountiy. Five hun
dred Filipinos will lie enrolled, and
they will be eligible as coxswains, sea
men, ordinary seamen, machinists, fire
men, coal passers, itewaids anil cook
anil mess attendants.
The cutting of the rate of pay Is Jus
tified at the Navy deparement by the
statement that it is In accoidunce with
the amounts now paid by the met chant
maiino of the islands. However, the
order practically cuts off from employ
ment 300 American sailois, and by
many here Is tegaidod as a menace to
those already employed, since it in
directly lowers the slandaitl of lemun
eiation. FATAL EXPLOSION

Supieme Comt Decides as to the
Constitutionality of His Action
on School Appropriations.
By Hvclmlve Wire fiom The Vnfociitid Pic
Philadelphia, Apill 22. The Supieme
com I today sustained the constitution
ality of Governor Stone's action In cut
ting off by a veto $1,000,000 from the
public school appropriation made by
the state leglslatuie in 1898. The gov
ernor's light to veto certain parts, ot
appiopriatton bills was canied to the
Supreme court by the Patton township
school district of Centre county, on an
appeal liom the decision of Judge Love
of that county, who held that the veto
of the governor was constitutional. The
township's school board Instituted pro
ceedings to recover its portion of the
money which was lost to the Centre
county schools by the goveinoi's veto,
and applied, to Judge Love lor a man
damus. The petition was lefuscd, and
the case was immediately canied to
the Supreme com t.
The right of the governor to leduce
appropriations had been the subject of
much inteiest throughout the state,
and .several suits. Instituted by school
districts to test the legality of the gov
ernors action, are now pending. Tho
decision of the .Supreme coutt today
will probably cause the abandonment
of these suits.
In his opinion. Justice Mitchell salcH
