SENATE REPORTED AS HOSTILE
Anti-Liquor Legislation Again Beaten
In House, the Steele Prohibition
Amendment Going Under, 90 to 108.
The Pennsylvania house of repre

122 to "1 the Scott bill providing for
submission to the people of the ques
tion of holding a constitutional conven
tion. The measure would have the ques
tion voted at the general election next
November and at the same time have
delegates to such convention chosen.
This was followed by the passage
by a vote of 144 to 30. without debate,
the Scott bill regulating the manner
of conducting the election. Both bills
go to the senate where their passage
is very doubtful.
Opponents of the first measure
based their objection principally upon
the "double-action" of the bill. They
contended that it was unfair to have
delegates elected to a constitutional
convention at the same time that the

a bill providing for a "blue sky" law
for Pennsylvania to protect Investors
from promoters of "wild cat" or heav

Trinkla'Spf Philadelphia, who drafted
the bill, "aatfl the proposed law will

Individual doing the actual selling In
this state to regulation and examina

that it provides for licensing and regu

department and If their business Is not
conducted according to law can be put
out of business quickly by revocation
of their licenses. Trlnkle continued:

The violet was substituted for the
daisy as the slate flower of Pennsyl

chosen met with opposition in some
quarters. The violet was urged by
