VARIOUS propositions were made in

have heen of the opinion with those
who think it is a Constitutional de
mand that this session of the Legisla

if this is correct, it is not tenable or
timely to question the power or right
of the Governor to re-convene the Leg
islature as he did. If the Constitution
requires the Legislation now, then it
is "an extraordinary occasion," an
"emergency," that should be met.
What could be a greater danger than
to disobey the very fundamental law
of the State? It means what it says
or it means nothing. And if this Leg
islature disregards it, future ones can
do sG~fdso. And, then what and where
might be the end ?
WORK AT IIARRISBI'RG.
ONE DAY IN THE HOUSE.
HARRISBITBO, August 20.
In the House to-day the heart of Ad
ministration Spokesman Amerman was
gladdened by the passage of his arbi
tration apportionment resolution, which
provides for the appointment of ten
eminent men outside the Legislature to
frame apportionment legislation. Am
err..an and McNamara were profuse in
their commendation of the proposed
plan to end the legislative deadlock.
Colborn saw no warrant for the transfer
of the duties of the Legislature to a
commission. Parcels, Democrat, of
Mifflin, who believes the Democrats
have nothing to gain and much to lose
by continuing the session, opposed the
chimerical proposition. Ayrcs, of
Bradford, said it was child's play to
propose such a plan The resolution
received a comparatively small vote, a
considerable number of Democrats de
clining to place themselves on record
in favor of it. Parcels is the only
Democrat who voted in the negative.
Speaker Faunce was among those who
declined to vote. On the passage of
the resolution the yeas were 83 and the
The Jamison Legislative bill was
passed finally, after several protests
against the manner of its passage.
Schlicher, of Schuylkill, and Smith, of
Reading, whose names were answered
affirmatively, were not present, and
Brown, of Erie, called the attention of
the Chair to the fact. Crawford, who
apprehended the failure of the bill to
pass, changed his vote to the negative
side. Brown kept his feet and demand
ed that the votes of the two persons
named be stricken from the roll. The
Chair said the roll would be corrected
accordingly. The clerks agreed in
their tally and reported 102 affirmative
votes. Crawford asked leave to change
back and it was granted him. This
gave 103 votes in favor of the bill and
Brown stood insisting the roll lie cor
rected. A member moved to adjourn
and the chair was about to put the
question when Brown renewed bis de
mand for a correction of the roll and
asked for the yeas and nays on the mo
tion to adjourn. The Clerks announc
ed the correction and that the affirma
votes were sufficient to pass the bill,
whereupon the call for the yeas and
nays was withdrawn and the House
The House to-day passed a resolu
tion, offered by Representative Greer,
of Franklin, providing for memorial
addresses in the hall of the House on
Tuesday evening in connection with
the death of J. McDowell Sharpe.
THE SENATE'S ANSWER.
On the next day the Senate answer
ed the above as follows :
HARRISBURG, August 30.—1n the
Senate to-day the Jamison Senatorial
and Legislative bill and the Amerman
Commission scheme were received.
The bill was referred to the committee
and the resolution tabled. Then
Cooper moved to take a recess a fifteen
minutes, in order that the committee
might consider the bill. Gordon said
the time wos not sufficient to consider
so important a measure. Cooper's
blonde eye-brows contracted as he hiss
ed back that five minutes was long
enough to consider a bill that came
over tainted with fraud. The motion
for a recess was then agreed to without
further discussion. At the expiration
of the time fixed, the Senate reassem
bled, and the bill was reported nega
Gordon proposed to submit a minor
ity report, and Cooper objected, on the
ground that leave had not been obtain
ed in the committee. Sutton asked if
the Republicans proposed to introduce
gag law. Cooper said they would
resist any proposition that entailed de
lay. Sutton said this discussion caus
ed delay, because it provoked debate.
Cooper answered thai he would with
draw his objection if the subject would
be treated without discussion. This
being assented to, Gordon submitted
his minority report. It recites that
nmple time had not been given the
Democrats on the committee to present
their views on the bill, and further
charges that the hasty action of the
committee was a reflection on the pur
poses of the minority. He moved that
the bill be placed on the calendar,, not
withstanding the adverse action of the
committee, which was not agreed to,
the yeas being twelve and the nays
GORDON FAVORS ARBITRATION.
The Amerman resolution was then
taken up, and Gordon supported it in a
speech of some length. lie said :
I wish to say now that the stock in
trade of the Senator from Delaware
(Cooper) in all the arguments upon
this question is entirely disposed of by
this resolution, for, if it should pass,
an expensive session would not be pro
tracted, because there would be no
compensation received by the members
pending the considering the subject by
this committee created by this resolu
tion. Therefore, when he or any other
Senator replies, I trust he will abandon
that branch of his argument, for it is
intended, and in terms stated in this
resolution, that no compensation shall
be received by the Legislature while
this arbitration committee is consider
ing the subject matter. Therefore it is
simply an effort without expense to tho
State to have this debated subject con
sidered and disposed of. The Senator
from Erie (Sill) has said he is very
anxious to have an apportionment.
The Senator from Beaver (Agnew) the
other day in a long argument asserted
the same thing. Almost every Sena
tor upon the other side, while he has
been doing everything in his power to !
avert an apportionment, has at the
same time protested most vehemently
that he desired one.
The purpose of this resolution is very
plain. It is to submit the difference
between these two bodies to ten dis
tinguished citizens of the State, live of
them Republicans and five Democrats,
and, while I do not desire to say any
thing too complimentary or too eulo
gistic of the fire Democrats of that com
mittee, I do mean to say something
about the Republicans, and 1 hope no
Senator upon the other side will take
it as a reflection upon himself when I
say that the five Republicans there
named stand out in their party as con
spicuously as Saul did among his
brethren, almost head and shoulders
above any on that side. Who are the
five Republican members presented?
Wbv we have the venerated standard
bearer of the Republican party ljjst
fall, General Beaver, who, if we are
to believe all the declarations of the
Republican State Committee, which
went out over the signature of the Sen
utor from Delaware (Cooper), is not
| only one of the best Republicans, but
; one of the most heroic men and one of
the greatest citizens this Common
wealth ever had, although it took up
wards of 400 pages of print to prove
that proposition ; but we have present
ed, nevertheless, General Beaver as
one of the arbitrators in this dispute.
HOYT, GROW, AO NEW AND GARRETT.
Now, having presented a gentleman
who wanted to be' Governor, we select
Henry M. Hoyt, who received a major
ity of all the votes of this Common
wealth to that office, and served yon
i four years faithfully aud well in the
; position of Governor. Surely he is a
lit custodian of Republican interests in
this matter. But, not desiring to travel
too much in one path, we went a little
outside, and we took a man who re
ceived at the last session of this Legis
lature over fifty Republican votes for
United States Senator, Galusha A.
Grow, and, if we are to believe the
statements of the Independent Sena
tors, those fifty Independent votes rep
resent not only the best thought, but
probably the highest political morality
in the Republican party. Galusha A.
Grow was the chief then of the Inde
pendent phalanx, and we have named
him as oae of the arbitrators in your
But we did not stop there. We
thought we would travel into the
judiciary and get the highest legal
talent in this State to protect the Re
publican interests on this committee,
and we took a retired Chief Justice of
our Commonwealth, who, by what
political methods I care not, is now
vegetating in the hills of Beaver coun-'
ty—an old and venerable man, whose
decisions line many pages of your
State reports aud who has not yet been
questioned in his legal capacity or in
his staunch Republicanism.
Mr. Cooper—He questions the power
of the Governor to call this extra ses
Mr. Gordon—But, Mr. President,
we did not stop there. We J went even
farther than that, and we took the most
conspicuous representative of Republi
can reform in the city of Philadelphia
—Philip C. Garrett, a man who voted
for General Garfield, who voted for Mr.
Hayes, who has voted for every Re
publican president since he had a vote
—a man who, I think, never voted a
Democratic ticket in his life for any
State or national office. Those are the
Republicans who have been chosen for
the committee. Those are the five men
on this committee who are to take
charge of your interests in this dis
Mr. Herr said he had but a word in
reply to the Senator from the Third
District (Gordon.) This proposition,
he said, was the outgrowth of Demo
cratic discomfiture. The argument of
the Senator was plausible, but fallacious.
There is a wide difference between the
cases cited by the Senator and the one
under consideration. In every one of
them the gentlemen composing the
commissions were selected because
they were specialists and had peculiar
knowledge of the particular subject,
but, in the present case, the gentlemen
named were not specialists; they had
no more intelligence, or judgment or
integrity than any other individuals
composing the Assembly. We are
just as competent to apportion the
State as they possibly can be.
It would be an unprecedented pro
ceeding for the Legislature to abdicate
its functions. All history showed
when king or Legislature abdicated its
power scorn and hissing followed the
cowardly act. Mr. Herr thought the
proposition would be rejected. A vote
was then ordered and the resolution de
feated, the yeas being 10 and the nays
seventeen—a party vote, except that

EXCURSION ON THE S. & A.
1,000 People Come to Town.
Wednesday last was a lively day in
Butler. It was knoWn our Mercer
county neighbors (now more closely
cjnnected) were coming to join in a
grand celebration of the completion of
the Shenango and Allegheny road to
Butler. But we did not look for so
great a number coming. Butler was
agreeably surprised. From Greenville
alone the excursion started with over
400 people, accompanied by the fine
Cornet Band of that lively and enter,
prising city. At Mercer, Fredonia,
Grove City, and other places in Mercer
county, they were joined by large num
bers. Coming into this county, Ilar
risville, New Hope, C'oaltown, Sun
bury, and other points added to swell
the numbers. By the time the train
reached Butler it contained 14 coaches
and about 1,000 passengers.
Arriving here the excursionists were
met at the depot Jby a large turn out of
our citizens and our Germania Cornet
Band. Carriages had been provided
to take the ladies and children to the
spaciousgrounds of the Orphans' Home,
which had been selected as the place of
reception. Refreshments, coffee, lemon
ade, fruits, etc., had also been provid
ed by our citizens. The excursionists,
however, generally had their baskets
with them, in regular picnic style.
When all had assembled at the
Orphans' Home, filling the shaded
grounds, halls and extensive porticos
of the Home, a few words of cordial
welcome were made by Hon. John M.
Thompson on behalf of our citizens,
which were responded to by the Hon.
James A. Stranalian, on part of the ex
cursionists. After this the baskets
were opened, the refreshments spread,
and a regular picnic time had, all of
both counties getting acquainted and
mingling in social intercourse.
As the time for leaving approached,
4:30 P. M , the people sought the depot
and all left in safety for their return
With the excursionists we noticed the
officers of the S. & A. it. R., Messrs.
Blair, Steele and Stin3on, James
Campbell, Esq., formerly of Parker
township, this county, James C. Brown,

those of our citizens who exerted them
