It is said that Gov. Stone and Secre
tary of the Commonwealth Greist are
not enjoying the most cordial relations,
and all because the governor first ap
proved the McClain bill, permitting the
formation of all kinds of corporations,
and then withdrew and vetoed it be
cause in transcribing it some legislative
clerk had altered it so as to permit the
chartering of distilling companies.
The bill was prepare at the state de
partment. and Secretary Greist and
Representative McClain. from his own
city of Lancaster, introduced it in the
house. The secretary had a pride in
making a good showing for his office
in the way of raising revenue and he
estimated that it would bring at least
$400,000 per annum into the state treas
ury. Consequently he was rejoiced
when the governor approved the bill,
even though it permitted the incorpor
ation of distilling companies, a fact
that seems to have been known before
the governor approved it. His joy was
changed to grief when the governor
withdrew the bill and vetoed it, an ac
tion on his part that will be contested
in court, as a certified copy of this bill
was secured from the Btate department
between the time the governor approved
it and his withdrawal of it.
Greist held that there was no occas
ion for vetoing the bill, because it in
corporated distilling companies and
that under it there was no call on the
governor to grant a charter to a distill
ing company, as he could exercise his
discretion and refuse to grant a charter
to distilling companies and thus render
nugatory the work of the clerk who
altered the bill. He pleaded for the
measure as a revenue raiser, but with
out avail.
Representative George Hosack. chair
man of the house ways and means com
mittee, is understood to be back of the
movement to mandamus the secretary
of the commonwealth to compel him to
issue a charter to a company formed
under the McClain act. It will be
contended that the bill was regularly
signed and certified copies furnished by
the secretary ot the commonwealth be
fore Gov. Stone discovered the fraudu
lent change and recalled it.
Representative Clinton Rogers Wood
ruff of Philadelphia has advised his
friends that he will institute proceed
ings against Secretary of the Common
wealth Greist to determine whether his
joint resolution proposing an amend
•»* ment to the Constitution for personal
registration is a law, the governor's veto
WITH a little tact a man who doesn t
know much of anything may get along
in this world without exposing his
colossal ignorance—providing he has
sense enough to keep quiet—for most
people are much more anxious to make
a display of the little knowledge they
have than to gain more.
About the .Hcliool Fund.
It seems to be settled that legal pro
ceedings will be instituted in the Su
preme Court to test the right Of the
Governor nnder the Constitution to veto
a proposed amendment to the Constitu
tion, and also to appoint a United States
Senator. In addition to these proceed
ings it ia reasonably certain that legal
measures will be taken in some form to
test the power of the Governor to re
dace the school appropriation. It will
probably be done by the proper officer
of some school fund applying to the
Court for a mandamus upon the State
Treasurer to pay the full amount of
money appropriated by the Legislature
for his district.
The question of the right of the Gov
ernor to reduce an appropriation to the
schools presents a legal issue with com
plicated aspects. There are three pi op
ositions which may be urged, but only
one of which could be maintained by
the conrts. The first is that the Gover
nor, in approving part of the appropria
tion. legally approved of the whole, be
cause of bis want of power to change
the amount appropriated. That, if sus
tained, wonld carry the whole approp
riation. The second is that the Gover
nor, in vetoing part of the appropriation
vetoed the whole, because of his inabil
to veto part and approve part. Tliat
position, if sustained, would prevent
any approriation to the schools for two
years, unless the Legislature shall be
reconvened to make new appropria
tions. The third is that the Governor's
action approving part and vetoing part
of the school appropriation was entirely
nugatory, and that the appropriation
became a law by lapse of time.
The distinctive issue to be decided in
the legal proceedings to inforce the pay
ment of the full appropriation to the
schools relates to the right of the Gov
ernor to change the amount of an appro
priation made by the Legislature. His
right to veto any specific item in the
general approprition bill, whether it
shall be a section, a paragraph, a sen
tence or even part of a sentence, is not
disputed; but no Executive has ever
heretofore assumed the right to change
the amount if specifically appropriated
by the Legislature for any particular
purpose. It i« a very imjiortaut counti
tutional question and one that has never
raised. beenoreven thonghtof.untilGov.
Stoni applied the principle to the gen
eral appropriation bill of the last Legis
lature. He has managed to raise more
constitutional disputes just on the
threshold of his term than any Gover
nor of the past precipitated during bis
entire services.--Phila Times.
ONE American company in the last
Bixty days has received orders for forty
three steam and gas engines, and they
will be ship|>ed to nineteen different
countries. American machinery is
famous now the world over.
As Austrian Colonel has designed a
quick-firing gun surpassing all previous
inventions. Its advantages are not
only in the great range and rapidity of
fire, but it caiues no smoke. Hash nor
report, being practically noiseless.
Dewey starts for Home.
The cruiser Olympia with Admiral
Dewey on board left Manila on her
homeward journey to the United States
at 4 o'clock p. w. last Saturday. As
she steamed away the Oregon. Balti
more and Concord fired an admiral s
-alute. At the first shot the band on
the flagship's afterdeck played a lively
air, and her whiteclad sailors crowded
the decks and gave a tremendous cheer.
As the Olympia passed the Oregon
*.he crew of that l»ttleship pave nine
cheers for the Olympians, who respond
ed by throwing their caps so high that
dozens of them were left bobbing in the
wake of the cruiser. Then followed the
noisest half hour known in that harbor
since the battle which linked its name
with that of Dewey.
As the line of guns and bands echoed
through the smoke and the steam
launches shrieked their whistles, the
musicians of the Baltimore played
'Home. Sweet Home.'' her flags signal
:-d "Good Bye. and those of the Oregon
said Pleasant Yoyage." The merchant
vessels in these waters dipped their
flags, the women on the decks of the
vessels of the fleet waved handkerchiefs,
and the great, black British cruiser
Powerful, which lay the furthest out.
saluted the Olympia. The latter's
band then played "God save the Queen."
and to this th ? crew of the Powerful
responded with hearty cheers for the
Olympia. The last music heard from
Admiral Dewey's ship was "Auld Lang
Syce," while the guns from the forts at
Cavite and from the Monterey/on guard
off Paranaque, too far off to be audible
puffed white clouds of smoke. The
Olympia was disapi»earing past Corre
gidor island when a battery before the
walled city spoke Manila's last words of
Admiral Deivey sat on the deck of the
Olympia and received the adieus of his
friends during most of the day. The
launch of Major General (His was the
first to arrive alongside the cruiser, at 7
o'clock Saturday morning, and after
ward the admiral landed and called
upon the major general and the United
States Philipine commissioners.
Admiral Dewey was enthusiastic over
his home-going, yet when mention was
made of the welcome to be extended to
him he said he appreciated the friend
ship of his countrymen deeply, but
hoped they would not be too demon
strative. He intends to go directly to
his home at Montpelier, Yt., and live
there. On it being said that people
wanted him to go home by way of San
Franci «co and across the continent, the
admiral replied: "If I was 20 years
younger and had political ambitions I
would not miss that chance."
Speaking of the situation Admiral
Dewey said: "I believe we are near
the end. The insurgents are fast going
to pieces. The sending of a third com
mission shows that they believe this
commission means business.
Captain Walker of the Concord, the
last of the commanders in battle there,
went to the admiral and said: "Don't
leave me behind." So he was relieved
and goes home on the Olympia.
SHAKESPEARE, though financially
I>oor, was the world's greatest philan
thropist. He bequeathed to mankind
and all the "generations yet nnlwrn a
treasury of wisdom infinitely beyond
price. He is the great interpreter of
nature. If you can read and enjoy
Shakespeare you have a soul.
Carnegie's Interests Only.
The statement of Mr. H. C. Frick sets
at rest all the wild stories of a gigantic
steel trust as well as the exaggerations
concerning the capitalization of the
Carnegie Company. The consolidation
is simply a closer welding of the Car
negie and Frick interests and the capi
tal will be $250,000,000 in one. kind of
stock, under a Pennsylvania charter.
Whether any of the securities will lie
offered to the investing public has not
yet been determined, though it is prob
able little if any will get outside the
present partners in the business.
The consolidation is made for better
convenience in handling a business that
has attained phenomenal success with
out this advantage. It needs no proph
et to foretell a continuance of that suc
cess in increasing measure. As Pitts
burg has been proud of the Carnegie
concern, so it wi 11 continue to be. It is
good news for this city that it is to re
tain its autonomy and continue the
competitive business which has made
it the leader of the world of industry.
It is also gratifying to note that there
is no truth in the minors of inordinate
inflation of the cajiital of the new com
Mr. Frick was wise it making this
statement, for while the consolidation
is a matter of private business is is of
great public interest The effect of
definite information—especially the
putting to rest of exaggerated rumors
—should be good for the business

THK British fleet and officials at Hong
Kong gave Dewey a tremendous recep

for ten days, and then resume his
journey westward. His reception at
New York will probably be the greatest
in history.

How to «*«•( GIMMI Fruit oil the
The peach is a fruit that everybody
seems to like and on.- that set-uis to be
in great demand if produced to perfec
tion. Many farmers send to the city
for their supply annually, I have sold
more peaches to neighbors than any
other kind of fruit, and yet with all
the demand we see very few farmers
raising peaches for their'own use. We
hear many complain that they cannot
get trees to live long enough to bear
more than one crop They have bought
many trees and spent much money and
time and have failed. Why? Is the
fault in the trees or in the men? Now
let ns SEE what observation has taught
us in regard to this fruit. I know far
mers who have bought many fine trees
from the nursery, have had them deliv
ered in good shape, who have planted
those trees in a small lot already over
crowded with trees of other kinds and
they have never got those trees to pro
duce one good peach If any did live
long enough to bear the fruit was so in
ferior in quality that it did not taste
like a peach. Again there is an orchard
that was set out some years ago. not far
from my place, that should be almost
in full bearing, and yet there is not two
trees in the whole orchard that is five
feet high, the height that I should desire
to have them commence branching ont.
but between the farm stock and the
team in farming the land those trees
have all been broken down until they
are nothing but a mass of sprouts and
if they were mine I should certainly dig
them all out and put them to the fiames
and mot occupy the land with them.
The peai-h is different from almost all
other kinds of fruit trees in its wood, it
is very open grained anil makes very
fast growth, consequently is more ten
der and should get just the reverse
treatment in its growth from the apple.
Whilst we shonld give the young apple
tree good land and high fertilization
until it comes to bearing age and then
let up somewhat to allow it to bear, we
should never try to force the peach tree.
.1 have never known a peach tree set out
in a rich garden or yard to produce
more than one or two crops and then
I have trees that have been producing
fruit for more than twenty years and
some of them appear as though they
might produce fruit for some years
more, and they stand on the poorest
land on the farm. The peach tree
should be planted on high ground: the
top of a hill facing south is best; they
should be planted by themselves and
not amongst other larger trees; they
shonld have ample room, say sixteen
feet from tree to tree; they should be
pruned about 5 feet from the ground to
lower limbs and the lower limbs should
not be allowed to grow too long; cut the
end off so that the sun and air may get
to the crown, do not allow any limb that
is to be removed to grow too large be
ore cutting. 1 do my peach trimming
with my pen-knife and fingers, breaking
the young shoots as the}' sprout out,
unless some large limb shows signs of
decay, than I use the pruning saw.
After a peach tree blooms the first time
is the proper time to fertilize, this
should be done by using well rotted
barnyard manure (not strawy) well
spread over the ground and plowed in.
Plow very shallow and do" not put the
manure close to the crown of the tree
but put it out where the feeding root
lets will get the benefit of it. Commer
cial fertilizers if strong in potash is far
preferable to barny.-.r.L manure It should
be put on the latter part of Febuary or
as soon after as possible so that the crop
may get the benefit of it. Let me again
insist that there should never be any
sward allowed to form around the crown
of any fruit tree and especially the peach.
