e#*l principle*, ami he sent for the Sen
ate anil House attaches aiui asked for
figures jn the cost. The Governor him
self suggested that the cost of the en
tire trip should not be over sls a man,
but this was shown to be entirely too
small, ami 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 wilt HP ex-pernled. That is
an average of $48.57.
Siae of Party Kept Down
The Pennsylvania will have
entire charge' from the time the party
leaves Harrisburg on next Momlav
niglrt until it returns on Wednesday
morning. The party will go by way of
Washington and Richmond to Newport
News. entirely by rail, occupying Pull
man cars—parlor, sleepers and dinei—
ami only those invited by the legisla
tive committee, of which Senator
Beidleman. of Dauphin, is the chair
man, will be allowed on the tram. '
They will arrive at Newport News
411 Toesdav morning and will attend
the launching at noon, in which cere
monv Governor Brumbaugh will tai**
part, and then go to Old Point Comfort
for the afternoon, leaving there in time
to get back to Harrisimrg on the fol
low ing 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 uo
scandal such as has Heretofore charac
terized some legislative expeditions to
participate in ceremonies.
It was expected that by 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, aud expenses
will be pared to the bone.

Swab. Who Wu Attachea co the
Northumberland County Treasury,
Must Stand Sentence—J usticsa Ad
journ, to Meet in Pittsburgh
The Superior Court this morning held
its final meeting of its present 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 Kephart was iu a
Northumberland county case, wherein
Swab, who wa« connected with the
Northumberland county treasury and
was convicted y>f 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 ami 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 l.ehigh Valley Rail
road Company reversed the court below
and ordered a new trial.
Other opinions handed down were as
By Justice Trexler —Harry t.ueiaon's
appeal, Lancaster, affirmed; estave of
Gideon Wagner, appeal. No. 1, Leba
non, affirmed; same. No. 2. appeal dis
missed: Joseph W. Bain vs. Ben's
Creek Coal and Coke Co.. Blair, appeal
dismissed; Margaret A. Wilson estate,
Lancaster, appeal dismissed; Wm, W.
Elzea vs. Herbert H. Brown, Phila
delphia, affirmed.
Bv Justici Orladv —Estate of I.
Newton Snivelv, Philadelphia, affirmed;
Herbert DeLong vs. Lehigh Valley
Transit Co.. Lehigh, affirmed.
Per Curiam —Kobinson vs. Harshaw,
et hi., Philadelphia, rule to advance
discharged and petition dismissed; Fin
frock vs. Northern Central Railway
Co., York, petition denied; Mary P.
Loy vs. International Mercantile Man
ufacturing Co.. Philadelphia, reargu
ment allowed; petition of Frank Kuss,
Luzerne, petition refused; Leon Holz
ami Alexander Rosenblitm vs. Charles
A. Smyth, appellant, petition for rear
gument refused.
The last case argued was the liquor
license case appeal of Beardslev from
the decision of the Bradford county
court. Beardslev was ane of the appli
cants for a license at the last court
and his license, ai were all others, was
opposed on the ground that the appli
cations had not beeu properly adver
tised. On this ground the court re
fused all of the applications. Rodney
A. Mereur appeared for the appellant
and argued that the Brooks high licensj
law did not intend drastic action such
as was taken by the court when a mis
take had been made in the advertising
of an application. Former Congress
man Horace B. Packer, for the appellee,
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
of his position. The court took the pa
pers and will hand down an opinion at
the session in Pittsburgh.
No decisions were handed down in
the Dauphin county cases angued this
week, and they may be expected to be
I heard from when the court sits in
Pittsburgh two weeks from now. These
. include the case of Athens George,
; proprietor of a Market street motion
i 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.

Commission on Fares Charged by'
the Pennsylvania Railroad Com
pany to Suburban Stations
Fred N. Bradley, secretary of the

siding at 4133 Mantua avenile, Phila-
I delphia, has filed a complaint with the
Public Service Commission m relation
to the fares charged by the Pennsyl

notwithstanding that the Fortietn street
station has been a regular station for

ticket or any other kind or a ncket
between Brond street and Fortieth
street and only sells a ticket entitling
transportation between the Fifiv-sec
ond street station and Broad street,
charging fc.r that distance. The com
plainant, as an evidence of discrimina

railroad company makes provisiou for
the sale of tickets between Pittsburgh
and Slfady Side and East Liberty ami
contends that tickets should tie placed

De Koven's Company at Majestic In-,
eludes Pleasing Voices
Robin Hood and his merry men, to
gether with the rest of de Koven's 6x
cellenc 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 tfee modern musical comedy,"
is now on its third tour of the country,
and in its stop at Harrisburg, at least,
it did much to realize 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.

Caatluurd from First r>(ft
made another of the swift and unex
pected strokes whi.'h have marked his
campaign against the Russians. Gath
ering a large force along the Prussian
bordor 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
I 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
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.

Messenger Boy Fractures Wrist
Joseph Btair', 109 Evergreen street,
a messenger boy for the Post Tele

yesterday and fractured his left wrist.
An X-ray examination was made at the
'Harrisburg hospital this afternoon.
CMtliid From Ffra* Pl(*i
'Mr. Cromer, of Allegheny, who intro
duced a resolution to tix 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
resolution 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 and 1 Jl w 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. l«auius, of York, the blind mem
ber of the House, said that at this time
in the session of 1913, 1,500 bills had
4>een introduced into the House and
that only 900 have been presented up
to this time in the present sesiion. He
said he was ashamed to go home on
Wednesdays, .when recesses were taken
on thait day, because his constituents
thought he had run awuy from Harris
Mr. Soues, of Schuylkill, declared
he had the same experience and persons
iu Pottsville wouM say:
"Back, already 1"
Mr. Milliron, of Armstrong, appealed
'to the 140 new members of the House,
saying that the people o>f the State
; would blame them for delays.
" lj©t us show them we are not a
' kindergarten Legislature' aiul 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 Erie, said
it is unfair to the men who can not got
home on the week-envlß to adjourn early
each week.
Mr. Porster'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 Republican side! It should
be filled, too."
A roll call on referriug the measure
to the Rules Committee fell by a vote
of 138 "noes" to 20 "ayes." Wit
taker 's motion for a postponement was
I overwhelmingly voted down ami the
roll call on the passage of the resolu
tion was 137 "for" and 19 "against."
Representatives Wild man and Swartz,
of Harrisburg, and Nissley and Young,
of the Second district of D&uphin
county, voted against referring the reso
lution to committee and voted for tho
passage of the resolution to tlx the date
, for adjournment.
Tries to luduce Legislators of That
Parly to Support Brumbaugh in
the Local Option Fight
At the request of A. Mitchell Pal
mer, Democratic National Conunittee
\ man from Pennsylvania, who has been
asked by Governor Brumbaugh to aid
the local option cause, Democratic State
Chairman Morris came to Hnrrinburg
yesterday to see what he could do with
the Democratic legislators. Before
leaving for home last evening Chair
man Morris issued the following state
"I came to Harrisburg primarily to
consult with the Demos'rati,' members
of the Legislature on the attitude of
the Democratic members toward Gov
ernor Brumbaugh's local option bill.
1 find that a majority l of Democratic
members will stand loyally by their
i party pledge and vote for local option,
j "There are a number of Democratic
• members opposed to local option. Sev
j oral of those are members who also ran
jon the Personal Liberal party ticket
with Governor Brumbaugh and who,
therefore, feel obligated to support tho
liquor interests. I pointed out to such
members as I talked with that the
Democratic State organization is prac
| tieally a unit for local option, that the
■ party platform demands it, that a large
\ majority of Democratic voters have ex
j pressed themselves in favor of it, and
I that, to vote against the local option
bill is simply to give aid ami comfort to
the Penrose machine which, in order to
keep faith with the liquor interests,
must defeat the Brumbaugh bill.
"I realize that in the face of grow
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 very
few Democrats foolish enough to offer
themselves as victims to the liquor ring,
which used every effort to defeat tho
Democratic State ticket; last fall."
Reduction of the number of record
ing jobs to three in counties the size
of Dauphin is the purpose of a bill in
troduced in the House this morning by
IMr. Phillips, of Clearfield. It pro
vides for the election of a Prothono
tsry to act as clerk of the quarter ses
sion, oyer and terminer ami uipnans'
court, and a Register of Wills and a
Recorder of Deeds.
The act must be accepted by the
county before its provisions can be ta

shall have charge of the election. The
