End of The Legislature.
The Legislature adjourned sine die at
noon last Satmrday. There were the usual
closing scenes, the rushing of work all the
previous night, the scrambling and hust
ling, the midnight lunch and the fre
quent libation. When it met early
Saturday morning it was consider
ably disfigured, but still in the ring. Be
tore the gavel fell silverware, gavels,
jewelry, watches, diamonds and horses
and carriages were scattered with a lavish
All was confusion in the House at Har
risburg, last Friday night. The big hall
was like a menagerie at feeding time, with
a Fourth of July celebration thrown in.
The racket continued nearly all night.
The noise began early in the day and
grew with the time. All sorts of pranks
were played. Big cannon crackers were
exploded under members' seats, but no
one was injured. riles and books
Bailed through the air, beans by the quart
rained down on unsuspecting legislators,
and altogether the big house looked like
a pigsty at butchering time. Wet sponges
sailed through the air and slapped up
against some membei's face, allowing
huge quantities of dirty water to run
down over his oheek and clothes and in all
this confusion one of the biggest fights of
the session was in progress.
The general appropriation bill passed
the senate Friday with the $11,000,000 for
schools. The senate amended it to in
clude $20,000 for the commission to in
yestigatethe city government of Phila
delphia; $15,000 for the Kennedy school
commission: SIO,OOO for the commission to
investigate prison labor; $3,000 for a com
mission to ascertain the number of aliens
in charitable and penal institutions of the
state, and $30,000 for the Atlanta exposi
tion commission. When the bill went
oyer to the house for concurrence Mr. Fow
of Philadelphia objected to the appropria
tion lor the senate investigation commit
tees. He claimed the resolution should
have been a joint one. There were just
13 votes in fayor of concurring.
Speaker Walton appointed as the house
conterence committee, Marshall, Alle
gheny; Biter, Philadelphia, and Collinf,
Lycoming. Th* senate oommittee was com
posed of Penrose, Grady of Philadelphia
and Fruit of Mercer.
The committee wrangled over the mat
ter all night. At midnight Senator Grady
said the senate representatives had agreed
to drop the senate investigating amend
ments if the house would agree to the cut
of $1,000,000 in the public school fund.
This could not be done without a great
fight which would last beyond the hour
scheduled for final adjournment.
The bouse oonferrees reported to that
body they coald not come to agreement
but were sent back to the conference.
The senators insisted on their amend
ments covering the expenses of the inves
tigations and.Senators Penrose and Grady
and Representatives Kiter and Marshall
held ont for the cut of $1,000,000 on the
schools. Senator Fruit and Mr. Collins
At the hour of 4 o'clock Saturday morn
ing the crisis was reached in the Senate,
when Senator Penrose attacked Senator
Flinn, and acoused him of influencing the
House to stand out against the two items
of expense. Senator Flinn hurled back
the insuation, and for a while the air was
blue and the noise from the boiling polit
ical pot was terrifio, until the lid was re

lower branoh refnsed to recide from its
position not to pasß the two items
At this stage there was great danger of
aii extra session, unless the joint rule was
suspended that no bills could be Pent
to the Governor after 8 o'clock. Lieuten
ant Lyon appeared on the scene, and
promised that if the House would vote to
suspend the rule the Senate wiuld give up
the fight. This was done. It is said the
man in Beaver used the long distance
telephone about 6 o'clock,and ordered bis
Senatorial lieutenants to stop the battle,
advising them that the money for the
Philadelphia investigation would have to

The situation was talked over, and it was
determined to push the investigation with
more severity than ever. Eyery Martin

The Wreck of The Colima.
The daily papers have contained farther
details of tne sinking of the eteainer Colima,
in which Mrs. Charles Thornton of Sharon
was lost. Twenty-six persons in all are
known to have been saved but it is proba
ble that the rest of the passengers and crew,
numbering 195 persons, were lost. It is
said that the sinking of the vessel was large
elv caused by the criminally careless way
in which the cargo was stowed.
Mr. John Thornton, who was accom
panying Mrs. Thornton to Gautamala and
was one of the few saved, gives the fol*
lowing graphic account of the wreoking
and alter events:
" After leaving the harbor of Manzillo
on Saturday afternoon we encountered a
heavy sea and headwinds which continued
all night. The passengers, of whom there
were 56. including children and servants,
first-class, and about 80 second-class,
were inside. During the night the steamer
continued on her course with only speed
enough to give her steerage way. Shortly
after daylight on the morning of the th
I was on deck and the mountains at the
entrance to the harbor of Manzille bay
were still in sight. About 10 o clock next
morning the storm reached its height ana
the wind was blowing a gale and the
wares running mountains About
this time the ship seemed to be m the
trough of the sea, the waves one after
another, striking her on the port side and
keeling her over to starboard. .Every time
she lifted she seemed to rock less and less.
"I had a stateroom on the main deck
well aft and on the port side, opening on
the deck. My sister-in'.aw had the second
and forward opening into an interior pas
sage Twbich connected with Mrs. Thorn
toD's and also opened on the ueuk, and was
occupied by Mrs. Thornton's maid. At
about 11 o'clock the storm seemed at its
worst, and the ship was lying over to star
board, and 1 left the deck and stood in the
passageway talking to Mrs. Thornton.
"The deck seemed to have an inclination
of about 45 degrees, and wave after wave
washed over the deck, flooding the state
rooms to a depth of two or three inches.
A heavy sea broke over the ships bow,
crushing through the main saloon and
starboard cabin, and wrecking them as
though they were made of cardboard.
Then I, with gome difficulty, opened the
door above me, for the ship was now lying
nearly on her side and climbed out on deck.
As soon as I was outside I forced open
the window of my sister-in-law's room and
found her aad her maid together with
life-preservers on. ... A T
'•1 told her to give me her hands and 1
would help her out, but betore I could
touoh her, a great wave struck the ship.
A huge wave washed over me, and 1 n ®"
ticed four or five men on the upper deck
above me, but when I could again look,
perhaps 10 seconds later, not a soul was in
sight, and them everything under me ap
peared to melt away, and ! suppose that
was when the ship went down.
"What I remember next was that I was
going down, down, until I thought I
would never stop going down. When
come to the surface through the wreckage
and lumber I was by myself within 15 or
20 ft of a litile craft with two men on it.
I got close enough to reach a rope they
throw me, and they pulled me aboard-
Then we helped aboard a Spaniard and a
woman, and within a minute more there
were seven on the craft,
"Cur raft turned over four times. Ihe
firit time the woman was lost, but gener
ally the men managed to get on it again.
The forth time the raft turned I was
thrown 30 or 40 feet away and could not
get on it again, bnt 1 could see that
there were three or four on it.
I got hold of a couple of piece3ofscante
ling and floated with one under each arm
until about 4 o'clock, when I fonnd heav
ier pieces of timber, which I lashed to
gether with strips tort) irom a pillow case
F had found floating. On this I managed
to sit astride until the life-boats and ratts
had dritted out of sight of where 1 was,
but I could see a number of men floating
on wreckage,and beside there was at a dis
tance of about 400 feet away a large Pieoe
of deck, about ten by forty feet, with five
men on it. , , , .
After two hours hard work I suceeded
in reaching it, but the men would not al
low me to go aboard, saying they had
enough passengers for the size of the craft.
I had in the meantime come across a Bail
or on a small piece of deck, who, like my
self, was intent on passing the night on a
large raft, and as he could not do this, he
proposed that we should lash his rait to
another of equal size, which was floating
near by. This sailoi was named Ross and
appeared to be a man of good sense and
lots of grit. He was badly hurt on the
head from being struck with wreckage and
was afraid that with the sun of the foflow
ing day he might go crazy. He criticized
the shipped the cargo and
the fact that the life boats and rafts had
not been gotten ready. I got bold ot an
orange, which I took a suck, saving the rest
(or future übe, and Ross got a turnip which
he would save for breakfast and which he
put in a sack and tied about his body.
Ross proposed that one should watch while
the other slept,but as the waves were up
to the neck, sleep was out of the question.
In the morning Ross put his hand in the
sack to bring out his breakfast and ex
claimed in most tragic tones, "Mv God, I
have lost the turnip!" so he went without
On Monday evening I could see the
shore line indistinctly and in the morning
we had drifted so far the land did not
look more than ten miles away and we be
gan to paddle for it Half a mile distant
we had made out a piece of deck with
three or lour men on it. After paddling
about two hours we saw the smoke
of a stoamer, which proved to be the San
Juan. We made signals with the sack
and about 10 o'clock were picked up by
the life boats. We were 22 hours in the
water. The boat before reachit-g us bad
already picked up two survivors badly
hurt and before we reached the ship res
cued two more. I saw three women but
no children. When I got aboard the San
Juan I broke down and went to bed in the
purser's cabin. After the vessel sank we
had about an hour of heavy driving rain,
and the water at night was very chilly.
As far as I know there were on orders
given to get ready the life boats and raft#
or for the passengers to put on life pre
servers, and in till* particular all the sur
vivors I have spoken to agree with me.

CHILDREN'S DAY XAS
come and gone, and is now numbered
with the things that are past. But this
part of the past will not soon be forgotten
in Petersville. Long before the hour for
1 opening, people began to throng toward
the M. E. church on Sabbath afternoon.
When the hour arrived the church was
packed. The Sabbath school used the re
gulation program provided by the M. E.
Board of Education with some few changes
and additions. The main feature was the
"Golden Gate" exercise. A high arched
gate was erected, a Key to whioh wai given
to each of a class of applicants for admis
sion through its portals. These keyi
were each inscribed with some virtuous
trait of character. Another striking
feature of the program was given by a
class of girls and boys eaoh holding some
object, as flowers, seed, fruit, golden
grain, stars, cross, etc., and using it aa an
object lesson to illustrate some Bible truth.
Altogether, the occasion served its true
purpose of awakening a deeper interest
among church people in the care of the
children, and of arousing the children
themselves to the fact that they are of
tome importance to Christ's kingdou..
This was not quite the first observance of
children's Day in Petersville, but it cer
tainly was the greatest in point of the in
terest taken by the people. Rev. and Mrs.
Cutler deserve special credit for their un
tiring zeal in the prosecution of this enter
