The question of Quay's right to a
seat in the United states oe'iate un
der the appointment of Governor
Stone was argued at Washington on
Friday before the committee on Priv
ileges and Elections. Quay's friends
argned that a state has a right to a
full representation in the United
States Senate at all times and that a
Senatorial vacancy taking place may
be filled by appointment by the Gov
ernor of State, if a Legislature fails
to fill the vacancy. That point was
not disputed by Quay's opponents,
bat the contention against Quay by
his opponents is that )hia.,appoint

Rtitntion made to govern such cases.
They contend that the vacancy of
Quay's seat did not take place dur
ing a recess of the Legislature of
Pennsylvania. They agree that if
Quay's seat had been made vacant
during a recess of the Legislature,
then Governor Stone's appointment
could not have been properly ques
tioned. But they contend that Quay's
vacancy took place during the time
of the sitting of the Legislature and
he haviner been a candidate lor re
election was not elected. The vacan
cy was caused by the Legislytnre's
failure to elect during its sitting and
therefore the vacancy did not take
place during the recess of the Leg
islature, but while it was in session
and therefore Governor Stone's ap
pointment is void. The contention
is that under such a state of affairs

On the 2nd dav of August A. D 1899,
the petition of ten taxable citizens of

presented at Chambers setting forth:
st. That petitioners are taxable citi
zens and residents of Milford township,
Juniata county, iu the northern portion
of the Muddy Run section that is with
out school accommodation.
2nd. That the school directors of said
township have wilfully neglected and
refused to provide a school-bouse, room
or building for the said district within
their jurisdiction, and under their sup
ervision and control, for the reasonable
and convenient accommodation of the
school children residiug witnin the dis
trict who desire to attend the school
3nl. That under the nresent school
accommodations some of the pupils of
the said district are obliged to travel as
much as two and one-half miles to a
school, and the district without accom
modations as aforesaid nas irom twenty
to twenty-live school children; and
praying that a competent inspector be
appointed to perform the duties in the
premises prescribed by the Act of As

Smith was appointed insjiector, who
proceeded to the discbarge of the duties

and statements contained in the answer
further than to say they are not sus
tained by the evidence so far as they
are material, and do not overthrow the
report of the inspector.
The 4th exception to the report of the
inspector and the 7th paragraph of the
answer allege that the Act of Assembly
of June 6th, 1893, under which these
proceedings were instituted is unconsti
tutional. ThiH Act of Assembly has
been under consideration by the Su
preme Court hi a number of cases,
among them Ross' Appeal 179 Pa. 24.
Appleal of Hcbool Directors of Kittan
ing township 179 Pa. 60, and Burr's Pe
tition 188 Pa. 122, and although so far
as the report of the cases show the con
stitutionality of the Act was not direct
ly in question thia is a cogent reason
wbv a court of first instance should not
so declare it.
The 8th paragraph of the answer al
leges that the Act of Assembly does uot
authorize the Court of Common Pleas
or a judge thereof to remove school di
rectors from office and appoint others in
their stead: aud that there is no power
in said court or a judge thereof to so re
move the respondents under this pro
ceeding. It is true there is no express
authority to remove the directors con
ferred by the Act of June (ith, 1893. It
authorizes and empowers the Court to
Kraut a rule on them to show cause
u hv ther should not lie removed, and
the legislature is not to lie presumed to
do a vain thing. Why grant the power
to issue the rule it the proceeding must
end there? But this is no longer an
open question The Supreme Court of
the State has decided that the court has
the jover to remove under the Act of
1893 ana Dyinataecisiou we arenouiiu.
In Itarr's Petition 188 Pa. 122, in deliv

Justice I)eau says: "the pnncljwl as

Justice says, "It might well have been

lioth these cases the Court of Common

In the second paragraph of respon
dents answer it is denied that "the dis
tance from the residences of John C.
Pfhuler, Joseph Jacobs, aud Samuel
Whistler, is two and one-half miles to
the Muddy Ituu nhool house," and
avers "that said distance by the public
road and thence by the private road to
the homes named is but a little over two
miles and by the route traveled and
used by private ways the distance is
much shorter aud that said way does
not cross the Pennsylvania Railroad at
an v point." The inspector reported, the
distauce at two and one-half miles It
wast stated at the argument that he
measured the distance by means of a
r--?L John C. " -I" assisted
Kunsequenti.Y measuring the dUTianee
testified that the actual distance waa
two miles, 2,535J feet, or to be exact 104
feet 8 inches less than two ana one-nan
miles. This is a very slight discrepancy
in the distance to which the maxim
Jtmmtmu nom curate It may well be
applifd, and is in keeping with the
character of some of the other defenses
set up iu the answer.
A considerable amount of testimony
was taken from which the following
facts are found. The children to be ac
commodated if a new school ia estab
lished would be drawn in part from each
of the following sub-districts to-wit:
Muddy Run. lied Bank, and Maple
Grove. As shown by the testimony of
Muddv Run has 7H children of school
aire. Red Hank has 74 children of school
aze. Manle Grove has 74 children of
school age. During the school term of
1898 and 1899, the average attendance
at Muddy Run school was 40, at Red
Itauk 40, and at Maple Grove 40. There
wereenrolled at Muddy Run 57, at Red
The iusiector finds that at the time
of his reports, August 24th, 1899, there
are about twenty scholars of school age
in the proposed district, aud that by
Octolier 1st, 1899, four more will arrive
at school age. The respondents at
tempted to show by the return of the
assessor that one of these children wa
not of the requisite age, and thus con
tradict the testimony of the father of
the child- The return of the assessor is
not sufficient to overcome this testi
mony. QA copy of the financial report of the
school directors of Milford township dis
trict was appended to and made a part
of the inspector's report. Its correct
ness waa not denied. From that it ap
pears that a tax oC one aud one-half
mills was levied for the school year end
ing June 1st, 1899. That the State ap
propriation received waa $1234 98. The
total expenditures of the district were
Cash ou baud $425 65
Amount due district from all -sources
Resources iu excess ofliabitities. 837.98
It will thus be seen that with a tax
levy of. one aud one-half mills there is
available assets of $837.99 due the dis
trict, aud that the State appropriation
was sufficient to defray more than one
half of the en tire expenses of school dis
trict for all purposes.
It will thus be seen that to establish
another school, so as to accommodate
the children of the petitioners and oth
ers in said district would impose no un
due burden upon the taxpayers of Mil
ford township. The fact that some of
the children that attend the other
schools in tlie township had to travel
long distances tn school, so much relied
on at the argumeut, is not decisive of
the question now under consideration
if at all material.
no doubt there are individual cases
in almost every township where chil
dren are compelled to go two miles or
more to school. This in some cases at
least, owing to the topography of the
district is unavoidable. But ft rarely
occurs that so many are thus incom
moded as in the present case.
Nor is the fact that some of the peti
tioners are tenants who rent their homes,
which was dwelt upon by the counsel
for respondents at the argument, entit
led to much weight. The only possible
bearing it could have would be their
liability to move elsewhere and their
places be taken by others without fam
ilies or children of sufficient age to at
tend the public schools. This is too
uncertain and remote to excuse the non
performance of a public duty. The
parent who rents his bouse is as much
entitled to the privileges, advantages
and benefits of the school law, as the
landholder who owns hia broad acres
and begrudges perhaps the modicum of
taxes be is compelled to pay to educate
the children of his less fortunate

When a svstem of edueatkltajV com
moo school was nrsi auopia,'v iw
Commonwealth but a comnvtivelv
small amount of monev was ai-'opn
ated by the State. The expense? of
maintaining the schools ana ounasig
school bouses was raised almost entirely
bv local taxation, levied by the dim
tors of the several townships. The coin
sequence was that many districts, ow
ing to tneir sparsely seiueu conuiiwu,
were unable to maintain efficient,
schools. The appropriations from the
revenues of the State were increased
and au effort made to increase the effi
ciency of the schools and afford better
facilities for those who wished to obtain
an education to do so. The iutereet In
creased, as the advantage to the State
from an intelligent citizenship became
more apparent, until the people by the
adoption of the constitution of 1874,
made it obligatory ou the legislature to
appropriate uot less than 1,000,000 for
the support of thecommou schools. . ee
Art. 10, Section I. This was not in
tended to be wholly in relief of the local
taxes, but was intended that those por
tions of the State iu which the propor
tion of wealth to population was great
est should bear a portion of the expense
of the education of the children of less
prosperous and poorer communities,
that all might a nearly as possible
have equal educational advantages.
And this policy should prevail In the
different school districts. We are not
unmindful of the fact that the law vests
a very large discretion in the board of
school directors and much deference
should lie shown to their judgment.
But when fully satisfied that they have
erred in the exercise of that discretion,
or from au undue regard for the com
plaints of taxpayers failed or refused to
perform their duty in providiug suffi
cient and reasonable accommodations
for all the children in said township or
school district between the age or six
and twenty -one years it is our duty to
say so, and to enforce the remeav wmcn
the Act of Assembly has provided.
At the argument there was consider
able discussion as to the location of a
school house. With that at present we
have nothing to do. It is to be pre
sumed that the board or directors wui

in that event until the exigency arises.
We may add that the fifth paragraph
of the respondents answer alleges that
the map accompanying the report of the
inspector is inaccurate and as usea cal
culated to mislead. We understand It
was made by one of the respondents aud
was not drawn to a scale, but in view
