For Larger Supreme Bench
MIGHT MAKE IT DEMOCRATIC
Pomerene't Resolution Hat to Do
With Future Impeachment Cases and
Provides For Impeachment Court.
Two additional justices of the su
preme court of the United States are
authorized in a bill offered In the sen
ate by Senator Gore of Oklahoma.
This would raise the membership of
the court to eleven. The Democrats
now have three members, the chlel
justice and two associate "Justices,
Lwrton and Lamar. It Is believed that
the author of the bill has no expecta
tion that it will pass this session, but
under the stimulus of a Democratic
administration it might go through a
Democratic congress. In that case
President Wilson would name the
justices and probably reverse the
Democratic representation on the
highest court to five out of eleven.
One almost certain result of the pas
sage of Senator Gore's bill. would be
to make the supreme court, which Is
now Republican, 6 to 3, a Democratic
body, for It is almost certain at least
one vacancy will occur In the next ad
ministration. Bill Provide For Impeachments.
Taking his cue from the impeach
ment of Judge Archbald Senator Pom
erene of Ohio introduced In th senate
a joint resolution which proposes a
constitutional amendment in regard to
The proposed amendment provides
"that congress may provide for other
causes of Impeachment than those now
provided for and other methods for
the trial of all civil officers except the
president, vice president and supreme
The resolution would provide a spe
cial Impeachment court to try Judges.
Senator Pomerene's Idea In Introduc
ing the resolution, he explained, is to
broaden the constitutional limitations
on Impeachment in order to remove
by statute all doubt of the right of
congress to impeach an official who
at the same time could not be in
dicted. Postoffice Bill Passed by House.
An attempt to revoke President
Taft's recent order placing fourth
class postmasters under the classified
civil service and to remove from
classification assistant postmasters
and clerks In first and second class
postoffices by an amendment to the
postoffice appropriation bill failed In
the house. The bill, carrying $278,

The bill shows an Increase of about
$7,000,000 over the postal appropria
tions for the present year, due iu part
to the expenses of the parcel post.

The mailing of babies by parcel post
Is the real infant industry Postmaster
General Hitchcock has been asked to
In the circumstances of his bach

strongly to the postmaster general.

HOUSE IS SLOW
TO MAKE START
Organizing ot Committees De
lays Legislative Work
LONG SESSION IS PREDICTED
Mass of Bills Will Be Ready For Con
sideration When Legislature Does
Get Properly Under Way Sheatz
to Introduce Important Measure
Which Would Give Assistance to In
digent, Abandoned or Widowed
BY ROBERT HAIGHT.
Harrlsburg, Pa. The Pennsylvania
state legislature is still experiencing
some difficulty In getting down to the
real task of law making owing to the
mlxup over the appointment of the
standing committees and the adoption
of the new rules as authorized under
the new method adopted at the or
ganization of the house. So far the
senate has had little or no difficulty
in getting under way, but It cannot
do much until the popular branch has
started the actual work, and It will
probably be a week or more before
the standing committtes of the respec
tive houses are properly organized and
ready for the consideration of bills.
Every sign at the present writing
points to the fact that the ses.iion will
be an unusually long one and old ob
servers are of the opinion that it will
be well into the month of June before
a final adjournment can be effected.
A tremendous mas3 of legislation hau
been prepared for presentation and as
much more is still In progress of
Public hearings by the various com
mittees on the different pieces of pro
posed legislation will be held at as
early a date as possible so that the
calendars can be brought up to a point
when bills can be placed before the
membertfcp as a whole for final con
sideration, but it will undoubtedly
take several weekB before this can be
accomplished. The acute drawing of
the factional lines over the speaker
ship battle has not yet died away and
there are some ugly rumblings heard
of coming alliances, both offensive and
defensive, that do not look well for
t'he active and prompt consideration
of bills and report3 of commissions.
It seems that during the recess
every member has been working over
time grinding out bills which he thinks
would be beneficial to his constituents
and the state at large and thh ac
counts for a congestion In the lioppers
of the clerks.
Probably one of the most Important
bills to the business men of the Bt.Ve
that will come before the legislature
is the one providing for the repeal of
the mercantile tax lawB, which have
long been regarded by the tradespeo
ple as being unfair and iniquitous. At
tempts have been made at almost
every session of the legislature to
wipe out this form of taxation ever
since It became operative, but each
time the political pressure was so
strong on the members that It fell by
the wayside. This time the friends of
the repeal are banking on the fact
that the present legislature is so in
dependently inclined that it will at
least heed the appeal of the merchants
and wipe out this law. The present
agitation gets its real Impetus from
the business associations of Alle
gheny county, which has addressed a
memorial to the committee on revision
of taxation authorized by the last
legislature. This body is asked to
recommend to the legislature that this
form of taxation be repealed on" the
grounds that it is an unjust, inequit
able and unpopular form of taxation
for the reason that it Is directed
against a certain class of business men
of the state, while the manufacturer,
the architect, the engineer, the sub
contractor, the doctor, the lawyer, etc.,
are not taxed for the business they
do 1n the state.
Another reason advanced is that the
gross receipts of a business are taxed,
regardless of the profits, which is
claimed to be very unfair, as soma
uerchants do a large business on a
smaM margin of credit which operates
to the benefit of the community. It is
furthermore claimed that the present
tax falls heaviest on the retail mer
chant and that the self-assessment
feature of the present law is really a
tax on honesty, as the less-conscientious
merchant is able to evade the
payment of a portion of his tax. The
memorial further declares that only
seven other states in the Union have
mercantile tax laws in existence and
these include five of the smaller west
ern states which are sadly in need
of the revenue derived from it and
that inasmuch as Pennsylvania is the
richest and most solvent state in the
Union, having a surplus or about $10,
000,000, it should not inflict this tax
on its merchants.
Aiding Widows and Mothers.
State Senator John O. Sheatz of
Philadelphia has prepared a bill for
introduction at an early date provid
ing monthly payments to Indigent,
widowed or abandoned mothers for
partial support of their children In
their own homes. The measure Is
made applicable to cities of the first,
second and third class throughout
Pennsylvania and proposes a state ap
propriation for the niaintainance of
such children, the cities benefitting to
contribute an amount equal to the
allotment by the sUte.
It further provides that the gover
nor shall appoint not less than five
nor more than seven women resi
dents of the cities of the first, second
and third class to act as trustees to
carry Into effect the stipulations oi
the act. To make possible the innova
tion the bill provides for an appro
priation by the Btate of $100,000, of
which $30,000 shall be available for
cities of the first class, $30,000 for
cities of the second class and $40,000
to be divided among cities of the
Turth class by the auditor general
and state treasurer, according to the
respective populations In the census
of 1910. The payments for the sup
port of such indigent children at their
homes would be made direct to their
mothers by the state treasurer on war
rants to be drawn by the auditor gen
eral. That only worthy cases may be pro
vided for the bill stipulates that no
payments shall be made until the trus
tees have satisfied themselves that in
order for the mother to keep !her chil
dren at home a monthly payment is
necessary and then only upon reports
from the teacher of the district school
stating that the child or children are
attending school and that the case is
in every respect a worthy one.
- To Improve State Charities.
Notwithstanding the fact that Gov
ernor Tener in his messabe recom
mends that the present state board of
public charities be continued and that
if necessary the legislature grant it
more potent powers, an association
has been formed throughout the state
for the purpose of urging the passage
of additional law3 which It Is claimed
would put the charitablu and state
aided institutions on a mare effective
basis. Briefly stated the objects of
this association are: The entire elim
ination of politics from the state's
charitable system, the adoption of a
sound state policy in making charit
able appropriations based on scien
tific standards and classifications, the
development of an adequate system of
state institutions before extending
state aid to local charities under pri
vate management, the segregation of
all feeble minded persons by 1918,
adequate care for the insane and the
adoption of preventive measures
against insanity as un auxiliary to
state care, the immediate removal of
all children from almshouses, the pro
viding of adequate state or county
care for the tuberculous within five
years, the establishment of a state
industrial home for women and the
modernizing of state penitentiaries
and county Jails, t'he adoption of more
modern and scientific methods in deal
ing with Inebriety and vagrancy and
the strengthening ot probation work
and methods, particularly for adult
offenders. ' -
Against Changing School Code.
Although the state board of educa
tion in Its biennial report states that
the sanitary conditions of the rural
schools in Pennsylvania are deplorable
they uphold the efficiency of the pres
ent school code and the report adviHes
against any radical changes being
made in the law. The reronns neces
sary, it states, are matters of local
administration solely and could be
remedied by ihe local school boards.
The state board, however, Btrongly
urges an increase of $5,000,000 in the
annual appropriation and declares that
the reduction in the size of the local
school boards is one or the most bene
ficial pieces or legislation ever enact
ed, as it was shown that an incalcul
able amount or time was thereby
saved and the efficiency or the school
adininistiution was increased'. The
board gives as its ultimate object the
equalization or educational oppor
tunities throughout the state to pro
vent the desire for transfer of at
tendance by pupils from their home
to another district.
On the question or an additional ap
propriation the report states that with
out this increase the school code can
no( .be.fll3?ff'ectlve. The money ob
tained from the local communities is
Bald to be insufficient and the present
school tax rate is as great as the tax
payers will bear. It is shown how
hundreds or farm owners move to the
cities that their children may receive
a better education and the biirden is
consequently thrown uion the tenant.
This difficulty may probably be re
moved in certain localities by a re
adjustment in the apportionment, but
a general survey or the state shows
the pressing necessity for greater
The board states that it lias been
working toward the creation or a
permanent state school fund and de
clares that Pennsylvania Is one of the
few Btates that does not benefit by
such a provision. Such a fund is made
possible by the school code, the
revenue to be derived from escheated
estates, the sale of water rights, the
forest reservations and other sources.
Statements have been obtained from
the stockholders of the Kdlnboro,
California, West Chester, ImcK Haven,
Ploomsburg and Clarion State normal
schools that they would be willing to
enter into negotiations with the state
for the sale of their schools and this
jmrchase Is strongly recommended.
The property of the thirteen normal
schools is worth $5,702,356 and the
Btate holds liens to the amount of $1.

HOME RULE BILL
Passes House ot Commons by
Vote ot 367 to 257
REDMOND CLOSES LONG DEBATE
Cjmmont Again Hears Warning of
Ulster Rebellion When Belfast
Hears of Vote There Is Indignation.
Amid scenes or rervid Joy by the
Irish Nationalists; which were shared
by the other members of the govern
ment coalition, the ftome rule bill
passed its third reading and the final
stage in the house of commons in Eng
land by a majority of 110, the voi
being 367 to 257, and was sent im
mediately to the house of lords. It wat
the climax of a debate which lasted
fifty-two days. Every possible vote
had been whipped in and the house
Bonar Law, the leader or the op
position, and Augustine Birrell, the
chief secretary of Ireland, were the
principals In the final encounter. The
Unionist leader reiterated his deliber
ate conviction that no rebellion would
be better Justified than one by I'lBter
against the new Irish parliament. He
said he knew that Ulster would rebel
and she was bound to succeed because
the Ulstermen were ready to give their
lives for the cause. If a hundred men
were shot In the streets of Belfast a
thousand more would be ready to take
their places and the responsibility ol
the shooting would be on the govern
ment. Chief Secretary Birrell criticised
Bonar Law for attempting to belittle
and almost denying the existence of
the Nationalist movement, which fot
years had been the soul or Ireland,
He did not deny that the Ulstermea
disliked the proposed idea or an Irish
parliament. He even admitted that If
the Unionists' fear of oppression were
verified that 'the Ulstermen would be
Justified in offering resistance, but he
asked how could the present mode of
government continue indefinitely. . No
body except Englishmen, he declared
would tolerate the present ridiculous
state of things.
When the final debate on the bill
was resumed in the house there was
not a seat vacant either on the floor
of the house or in the galleries. The
crowd was awaiting eagerly the
speech of John Redmond, the Irish
"We oppose the exclusion of Ulster
from the home rule bill on several
grounds," said the Irish champion,
"but the supreme objection is that
nothing would compensate the Nation
alists for the mutilation of their coun
try." Mr. Redmond then reiterated what
he stated In the debate on the first
reading or the bill namely, that the
Nationalists accepted the bill as the
final solution or a vexed question. He
thought it would lead to the reconci
liation or all the interests at stake be
tween the north and the south of Ire
land. Mr. Redmond declared t'he Nation
alists refused to regard Ulstermen as
anything but brothers and he Invited
them to join with the Nationalists in
the emancipation and the government
or their common country. He went
"I believe that lit spile of the house
of lords the home rule bill is going to
pass Into law within the lifetime of
this parliament. The house of lords,
we know, Is going to throw it out, but
although the lords still have teeth
t'hey cannot bite."
There was an excited manifestation
against the passage of the home rule
bill in Belfast, Ireland. There was a
demonstration In the streets and a
copy of the bill was burned In tragic
fury. There was no rioting, however,
and the troops who were in the bar
racks were not called out.
