House Gets It Tangled Up
With the Brooks High
License Law
"Ntar beer" legislation gave the
House some enjoyment at the night
session before it was voted down by
a vote of 91 to 76. Messrs. Wallace,
Lawrence, and Boland, Crawford,
discussed the beverage and its re
lation to the Brooks high license
law, with Mr. Powell, Luzerne, the
sponser. Mr. Davis, Cambria, de
clared a better concoction was the
old Pme spring and fall tonic that
"mother used to make." The bill
would have legalized sale of bev
erages containing loss than one-half
of one per cent, of alcohol.

Spangler Fights
McCall's Ferry Dam
After a heated hearing before the
Senate Game and Fish Committee
to-night. Speaker Spangler's bill re
quiring the fish commissioner within
one year to certify whether the
Pennsylvania Water and Power Com
pany at McCall's Ferry is maintain
ing an adequate flshway in the Sus
quehanna river and providing that
unless such certificate is filed within
thirteen months the Attorney Gen
eral is directed to 'lnstitute legal
proceedings, was favorably reported
to the Senate.
Bernard J. Myers, deputy attorney
general, appeared at the hearing and
told the committee that the bill Is
unconstitutional because it is special
legislaton and had not been adver
tised and because the Legislature
connot dictate the duties of the At
torney General.
Speaker Spangler, in urging his bill
before the committee, said that he
was amazed that the Attorney Gen
eral should send one of his deputies
to a committee where legislation is
pending and try to dictate to it what
it should do. Turning to Mr. Myers,
Speaker Spangler declared that the
"Attorney General is the servant of
the people and not the master of
the Commonwealth."
Mr. Spangler also declared that
the State Fish Commissioner in the
present case Is half hearted In see
ing whether the law is being vio
lated. The fish commissioner, he
said, has failed to do his duty to the
people of the Commonwealth and
has allowed the matter to lapse.
Mr. Spangler charged that the two
fishways at McCall's Ferry dam are
not adequate, that they are fizzles
and mere pretenses and that the fail
ure of the company to maintain ade
quate fishways was in effect the tak
ing of the property of the people
without due process of law because
the Susquehanna river belonged to
the people of the State.
John E. Malone, of Lancaster,
counsel for the Pennsylvania Water
and Power Company, told the com
mittee that the fishways now there
had been approved by the proper
authorities and that they are the best
that can be had at the present time.
The company, he said, was willing
to do anything that would result in
better fishways if such were possible.

101 to 84 late yesterday. It re
quired 104 votes to pass.
The bill was presented by Mr.

center in the House. It was the sub
ject of one of the biggest hearings

posed by organized labor and grang
ers' organisations. The vote was
marked by several challenges.
Mr. Eiynn opened the debate by
saying the bill was designed to meet
the "unusual activities of an ele

and said that authorities should use
intelligence instead of such weap
ons as the bill. Labor organizations
are awake to the dangers of Bolshe

he said men who favor it are vot
