Effort May Be Made in the
House to Reconsider
Revival of the Powell bill reor
ganizing the State Police Department
and adding one troop may be under
taken in the House to-night by State
Administration forces. Ever since
the bill was defeated last Monday the
administration officials have been
busy in an effort to assemble
enough strength to have the bill
put back on the calendar and passed
by the House, feeling sure of the
Senate. The members from third
class cities who voted against the
bill and some of the men from rural
districts who got mixed up in the
battles in the House last Monday
have heard from home and have
sent word that they now favor pass- j
ing the bill.
This will be a most important J
week for the Legislature and it may I

ences will be held by legislative
leaders with Governor Sproul and
the fiscal officers regarding the esti
mates of the income of the State for |
the two-vear period for which ihe j
Legislature will appropriate ana it j
is likely that an agreement as to |
tne anion at will he reached and the j
general appropriation, college, edit- j
rational and charitable bills will bo
trimmed accordingly. Some of the
appropriation bills may be reported
out in the next ten days.
Important action in regard to
bills which have been holding much
interest will he taken (luring the
week. The quest'on of amendments
to the compensation code will be
discussed by legislators with State
officials and labor leaders will urge
an increase in rates. Attorney Gen
eral Schaffor will complete the
amendments proposed to the anti
sedition biji which will be considered
by the House Judiciary Special Com
mittee and likely be reported out
again to the House for action.
Amendments will also be made in
committee to the bill to create the.
Department cf Conservation which
is in the hands of the Senate Com
Among hearings scheduled for the
week will be on the mine cave and
English advertisement bills in Sen
ate committees and on the House
side on the bills to tax capital invest
ed in manufacturing which is now

minor labor bills by the Committee
on Manufactures and on the Dith

the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
will receive in the next two years
has been made officially, but it is be
lieved that a figure around $85,000,-
000 may be decided upon as a limit.
Home optimists are inclined to think
that the figures for the present ytear
may go well over $44,000,000, but
others contend that they may not
go to $42,000,000. Much will depend
upon the manner in which the tax
is collected and the Auditor Gen
eral's Department is proceeding vig
orously to elear the books of back
taxes. The twti-mill manufacturing
capital tax would add materially
and it is not certain yet whether it
will not be necessary to take care
of the teachers' salary increase.
Included in the appropriations
asked is $9,000,000 for colleges,
which it is predicted will be cut
down. The general appropriation
bill, which stands over $40,000,000,
is due to be trimmed as well.
Plans have been made for a con
ference between the Governor, the
fiscal officers and the chairmen of
the appropriations committees to
morrow or next day with a view to
getting down to brass tacks on the
amount that can be voted. The
Governor will also settle the rev
enue raising problems this week.
The final hearings and inspections
will be made by the House Appro
priations Cpmmittee this week.
Tuesday the Downingtown Industrial
School will have a hearing on its
The new Federal Inheritance Tax
law will cost the Commonwealth of
Pennsylvania probably a million dol
lars a year because of the fact that
the taxes of this State are levied on
the clear value of estates after de
duction of debts, cost of administra
tion and federal taxes. When this
law was enacted the State authori
ties never contemplated such in
heritance taxes as those now in force
as a result of the War Revenue law
and the liscovery that big estates
will pay enormous federal taxes and
the State lose what it might have
gotten has resulted in a series of
bills to correct the condition. One
of these bills is in the so-called Daw
son series, introduced by the chair
man of the Ways and Means Com
mittee at the request of the Auditor
General. The Federal law allows
exemptions up to $50,000 estates.
The tax is one per cent, up to SIOO,-
,000, bui raises rapidly after that,
to eight per cent, for million
dollar estates and twenty-two per
cent, for those between eight and
ten million dollars.
The bills will probably be reported
out by the Ways and Means Commit
tee this week. The Walker series
which will stiffen up the taxes
against foreign corporations are ex
pected to pass this week, while the
new inheritance tax code is on the
House calendar.
