WHY REMOVE THE CAPITAL ?
''IIIF propost n made by Representative
Voorhees of Philadelphia to remove the
( !apital from Harrisburg to Philadi Iphia is being
very much discussed. The bill provides that the
question of removal be submitted to the people
at the fall election. Whythecapital should he re
moved is a question that has not been answered,
except it be to enrich Philadelphia at the expense
of the Siate. Harrisburg is centrally located with
railroad connections diverging in all directions.
The state has millions of dollars worth of proper
ty at Harrisburg which in case of removal
would be a total loss.
Business interests in Philadelphia are d
diverscund the best interests of the Coram -wealth
would not be promoted. Harrisburg
lias always shown her ability to handle lie
crowds. Besides if Harrisburg shall no longer
be considered the State Capitol, trad a removal
proposition be in order, we suggest Middleburg
and we call upon Representative Smith to intro
duce a bill to submit Middleburg as a candidate
for public favor.
