Cwtl>*«t From Flrat
oral principles, and he sent for the Sen
ate and House attaches and asked for
figures an the cost. The Governor him
self suggested that the cost of the en
tire trip should not be over sl.» a man,
but this was shown to be entirely too
small, and when the details were gone
over it was found that the expenses,
covering everything, including trans
portation and boarding, would be not
less than $1,700. ami that is about the
amount that will Me expended. That is
an average of $45.57.
Sise of Party Kept Down
The Pennsylvania will have
entire charge" from the time the party
leaves Harrisburg on next Monday
nigh-t until it returns on Wednesday
morning. The party will go by way of
Washington and Richmond to Newport
>ews, entirely by rail, occupying Pull
man cars—parlor, sleepers and diuei —
and only those invited by the legisla
tive committee, of which Senator
Beidletuan. of Dauphin, is the chair
man, will be allowed on the tram. '
They will arrive at Newport News
qii Tuesdav morning and will attend
the launching at noon, in which cere
monv Governor Brumbaugh will ta*f
part", and then go to Old Point Comfort
for the afternoon. leaving there in tune
to get back to Harrisourg on the fol
lowing morning.
Much disappointment has been ex
pressed among those Senators and Rep
resentatives who will not be of the
party, but the Governor is determined
that" there shall be no junket and no
scandal such as has Heretofore charac
terized some legislative expeditions to
participate in ceremonies.
It was expected that by some hocus
pocus the Pennsylvania delegation
could be enlarged to at least a hundred
•in order that a big showing might be
made for a big State, but the money
was not there to pay the expenses, and
the chief clerk ~ the Senate and House
who will have to pay the bills out of
their contingent funds are not going to
sanction anything more than what is
desired by the Governor, and expenses
will be pared to the bone.
Had Appealed Damage Suit But at Last
Moment Decided Not to
Press It
Failure on tue part of the Ceutral
Pennsylvania Traction Company, now
the Harrisburg Railways Company, to
press its appeal in the damage suit

{Derry street, this city, resulted in the
Superior Court, now in session in this
city, non-prossing the suit.
Cornman. who is a grocer, brought
suit against the trolley company fol
lowing an accident on April 27, 1910,
in which his deliverv wagon, ladened
with eggs, was struck by a trolley. A

Swab, Who Was Attached to the
Northumberland County Treasury,
Must Stand Sentence—Justices Ad
journ, to Meet in Pittsburgh
The Superior Court this morning held
its tinal meeting of its preseut session
and, after hearing argument in the last
case, handed down a number of opin
ions and adjourned, to -meet in Pitts
burgh in April. One of the decisions
made by Justice Kaphart was in a
Northumberland county ease, wherein
Swab, who was connected with the
Northumberland county treasury and
was convicted yf embezzling county
funds, made an appeal for a new trial.
It was denied and he was ordered to
appear for sentence. Justice Kephart
went over the facts in the case at
length and found that there was noth
ing in the appeal to justify a reversal
of the court below, and he decided
against Swab. Justice Kephart also
affirmed the Delaware county court in
the appeal of Evans, and in the case
of Floyd vs. the Lehigh Valley Rail
road Company reversed the court below
and ordered a new trial.
. Other opinions handed down were as
| follows:
By Justice Trexler —Harry bueiaon's
appeal. Lancaster, affirmed; estave of
| Gideon Wagner, appeal. No. 1. Leba
non, affirmed; same. No. 2. appeal ilis
j missed; Joseph W, Bain vs. Ben's
I Creek Coal and Coke Co.. Blair, appeal
i dismissed; Margaret A. Wilson estate,
1 Lancaster, appeal dismissed; Wm. W.
; Elzea vs. Herbert H. Brown, Phila
| del'phia. affirmed.
By Justiei Orlady—Estate of I.
. Newton Snively. Philadelphia, affirmed;
Herbert DeLong vs. Lehigh Valley
j Transit Co.. Lehigh, affirmed.
Per Curiam —Robinson vs. Harshaw,
,et Ytl., Philadelphia, rule to advance
I discharged and petition dismissed; Fin
frock vs. Northern Central Railway
j Co., York, petition denied; Mary P.
| Loy vs. International Mercantile Man
j ufacturing Co., Philadelphia, reargu-
I ment allowed; petition of Frank Kusa,
Luzerne, petition refused; Leon Holz
and Alexander Rosenblum vs. Charles
1 A. Smyth, appellant, petition for rear
gumeut- refused.
The last case argued was the liquor
: license case appeal of Beardslev from
| the decision of the Bradford county
! court. Beardslev was one of the appli
j cants for a license at the last court
I and his license, as were all others, was
! opposed on the ground that the appli-
I cations had not been properly adver
i tised. On this ground the court re-
I fused all of the applications. Rodney
A. Mercur appeared for the appellant
and argued that the Brooks high license
: law did not intend drastic action such
} as was taken bv the court when a mis
! take had been made in the advertising
of an application. Former Congress
man Horace B. Packer, for the appellee,
1 held that the court had simply carried
; out the mandate of the law and was
! justified in refusing the license, and
| quoted numerous authorities in support
iof his position. The court took t'he pa
; pers and will hand down an opinion at
j the session in Pittsburgh.
No decisions were handed down in
the Dauphin county cases artgued this
week, and they may be expected to be
heard from when the court sits in
, Pittsburgh two weeks from now. These
j include the case of Athens George,
i proprietor of a Market street motion
! picture theatre, who took an appeal
from the Dauphin county court's deci
sion regarding the segregation of ne
i gro patrons of his house.

Philadelphia Enters Protest to the
Commission on Fares Charged by
the Pennsylvania Railroad Com
pany to Suburban Stations
Fred X. Bradley, secretary of the
I Belmont Improvement Association, re
siding at 4133 Mantua aventle, Phila
delphia, has tiled a complain; with the
j Public Service Commission in' relation
to the fares charged by the Pennsyl
vania Railroad Company at mo For
j tieth street station. It is alleged t<hat,
i notwithstanding that the Fortietn street
l station has been a regular si at ion for
| more than five vbars, the railroad com
| panv has declined to sell a single trip
ticket or any ofher kind of a ticket
i between Broad street and Fortieth
| street and only sells a ticket entitling
transportation between the Fifiy-sec
ond street station and Broad street,
charging for that distance. The com
plainant, as an evidence of discrimina
tion and unfairness, points »ut thaObhe
railroad crnipan* makes provision for
the sale of tickets between Pittsburgh
and Sliady Side and Fast Liberty and
contends that ticket* should oe placed
on sale marked or printed on the face
thereof "Fortieth Street Statiou."
The White Oak Light, Heat & Pow
| er Company petitions the Commission
I to restrain the Hoiough of Benson, Soun
! erset county, from constructing an elec
. trie light plant for the purpose of
j lighting the streets of the municipality
I and furniskiug current for the lighting
i of residences and business places with
ing the borough.
Since 1906 the complainant has
Tbeen rendering this service, but the
borough is now about to have us own
| plant and intends to out down the com
] plainant s poles and remove its fixtures
I from the streets. This proposed actiou,
j the complainant says, is interfering
I with its vested rights and is illegal.

est Bidder When Property Is
Knocked Down
Sheriff Wells this afternoon conduct
ed one of the liveliest property sales:
probably since he took office three
years ago. In one case two lawyers,
j bidding on the same property, each
I claimed to have filed the highest bid j
; and the Sheriff was obliged to reopen i
the sale.
Five pieces of Millersburg property
formerly atoned 'bv J. M. Johnson had
been bid up to $1,730 and the auc
tioneer "knocked it down" to James

De Koven's Company at Majestic In
cludes Pleasing Voices
Robin Hood and his merry men, to
gether with the rest of de Koven s Ex
cellent company, delighted yesterday's
audiences at the Majestic wi>.n music
that was really music. The company,
organized two seasons ago for the pur
pose "of restoring the glories of Eng
lish light opera and giving a jaded pub
lic more and better music than is af
forded in ttie modern musical comedy,"
is now on its third tour of the country,
and in its stop at Harrisburg, at least,
it did much to realise its purpose.
The gorgeous costumes added 'at
tractiveness to the production, and the
electrical effects aided in pleasing the
eye. The voices, of course, provided
the real entertainment, including most
notably Cora Tracy's contralto, Bessie
Abbott's soprano, Harold Blake's tenor
and James Stevens' baritone.

made another of the swift and unex
pected strokes which have marked his
campaign a-gainst the Russians. Gath
ering a large force along the Prussian
border in Northern Poland, he has be
gun a new movement outward, appar
ently intending to strike again at
Przasnysz where the Germans recently
met the defeat which preceded their
general retirement in the north. An
important battle has developed as a
result of this movement, the result of
which, it is said in Petrograd, has not
yet been indicated.
With the. diminution of activity in
Champagne, the western battle front
has grown quieter. The German mili-
I tary authorities assert that the allies
| have suffered a complete defeat in
Champagne after undertaking an of
fensive movement believed in Berlin
to have been designed to relieve pres
sure on the Russians. Desultory fight
ing continues in Belgium, but along
the eastern end of the line where there
have been active and almost contiuous
battles, weather conditions have en
forced a temporary lull.
PAris reports tell of resumption of
the Dardanelles" bombardment. It Is
said that the fire of some Turk

C*itliu< Fro™ FJrm i*>
'Mr. Cromer, of Allegheny, who intro
duced a resolution to fix March 17 a»
the last day for the introduction of
bills to be acted oa at this session,
pleaded \for the passage of the Baldwin
'resolutiou in the. following terms:
"Let us adjourn before we pass too
much fool legislation."
Mr. Walter, of Franklin, asked for
a postponement until Monday evening,
saying that the resolution was unfair
to the chairmen of the Judiciary Gen
eral aivd .Law and Order Committees
who have worked hard on important
legislation and necessarily would have
to be hurried on more important meas
ures. v
A "Kindergarten Legislature?"
Mr. ljauius, of York, the blind mem
ber of the House, said that at this time
in the session of 1913, 1,500 bills had
been introduced into the House and
that only 900 have been presented up
to this time in the present session. He
said he was ashamed to go home on
Wednesdays, .when recesses were taken
on thait day, because his constituents
thought he had run away from Hnrris
Mr. Soues, of Schuylkill, declared
he had the same experience and persons
in Pottsville wouM say:
" Back, alreadyf"
Mr. Milliron, of Armstrong, appealed
| to the 140 new members of the House,
saying that the people of the (State
would blame them for delays.
" us show them we are not a
'kindergarten Legislature' and advance
to the front rank before the close of
the session," he said.
Several members suggested working
Thursdays and Fridays to complete the
work. One member even went so far
as to propose "seven days a week" to
get through. Mr. Kitts, of Krie, said
it is unfair to the men who can not get
home on the week ends to adjourn early
each week.
Mr. FV)rster's suggestion for post
ponement met with a chorus of "noes"
and it was evident that a vote was to
be forced on the resolution. The de
bate closed when Mr. Dunn, of Phila
delphia, said: \
"Look at the Democratic side of
the House! They are in their seats. And
look at the Republicuu side! It should
be filled, too."
A roll call on referring the measure
to the Rules Committee fell by a vote
of 138 "noes" to 20 "aves." Wit
taker's motion for a postponement wits
overwhelmingly voted down ami the
roll call on the passage of the resolu
tion was 137 "for" and 19 "against."
Representatives Wildman and Swartz,
of Harrisburg, and Nissley and Young,
of the Second district of Djiuphin
county, voted against referring the reso
lution to committee and voted for the
passage of the resolutiou to fix the date
for adjournment.
Tries to Induce Legislators of That
Parly to Support Brumbaugh in
the Local Option Fight
At the request of A. Mitchell Pal
mer, Democratic Rational Committee
man from Pennsylvania, who has been
asked by Governor Brumbaugh to aid
the local option cause, Democratic State
Chairman Morris came to Hnrrisburg
yesterday to see what he could do with
the Democratic legislators. Before
leaving for home last eveniug Chair
man Morris issued the following state
''l came to Harrisburg primarily to
consult with the Democratic members
of the Legislature on the attitude of
the Democratic members toward Gov
ernor Brumbaugh's local option bill.
1 find that a majority'of Democratic,
members will stand loyally bV their
j party pledge and vote for local option.
"There are a number of Democratic
members opposed to local option. Sev
j 'Tal of those are members who also ran
jon the Personal Liberal party ticket
with Governor Brumbaugh and who,
therefore, feel obligated to support the
liquor interests. I pointed out to such
members as I talked with that tie
Democratic State organization is prac
| tically a unit for local option, that the
i party platform demands it, that a large
! majority of Democratic voters hayjj ex
pressed themselves in favor of it, and !
I that to vote against the local option 1
i bill is simply to give aid ami comfort to 1
j tlxe Penrose machine which, in order to
j keep faith with the liquor interests,j
| must defeat the Brumbaugh bill.
"I realize that in the face of grow- j
ing popular feeling the Penrose ma
chine would be only too glad to fulfill '
its contract with the liquor interests
by delivering a few Democrats in lieu
of its own Representatives. I am hope-'
ful, however, that it will find yen
few Democrats foolish enough to offer
themsedves as victims to the liquor ring, 1
which used every effort to defeat the j
Democratic State ticket last fall."
Reduction of the number of record- ;
ing jobs to three in counties the size i
of Dauphin is the purpose of a bill in- i
troduced in the House this morning by
Mr. Phillips, of Clearfield. It pro
vides for the election of a Prothono- j
j tsry to act as clerk of the quarter ses
sion, oyer and terminer ami oipnans'
j court, and a Register of Wills and a
Recorder of Deeds.
The act must be accented by the •
