JCEEP YOUR BLOOD CLEAN
The Last Republican Legislature
Looked After the Agricul
MANY GOOD NEW LAWS PASSED
Besides the Enactment of the Antl
Oleomargarine Legislation There'
Were Bills Passed Demanded By the
Grangers of Pennsylvania.
The farmers of Pennsylvania have
frood reason to commend the last legis
lation for its consideration of their
needs, m shown in the large amount
cf valuable legislation which was en
acted In tho Interest of agriculture.
They passed no less than 33 distinct
Mils diroctlj benefiting the country
districts tho fanners of the Itate.
Among thoso of the greatest Import
ance Is the now commercial fertilizer 1
law, which Increases tho license fee
from $10 to $15, for sales of 100 tons
and less, and extends the powers of the
Eiicrntarv nf Bl uplmilraf M l,v authnrlv. I
lug him to pnasecute offenders, direct
ly, without having to do so through
some purchaser. Under the practice j
and workings of the old law, which pro
vided that the "Informer bo the pur
chaser and the goods be for his own
use." no one could ho punished for Ha
THK WIDE TIRH LAW.
Thoro Is also the "wide tire" law,
which grants an annual rebate of one
fourth of the road tax, not exceeding
the value of five days' labor, to all who '
will use a tiro of not less than four
Inches wide, In hauling loads of 2,000 1
pomids and over. Tin; hauling of loads
of 10,000 poupndl and over is prohih-
Hod, under penalty, unless tho wagon
has tires at least four Inches wide.
This is a most important advance, in 1
tho Interest of better roads, sinco it I
aims to reduce the wear upon the pub
lic highways, by Increasing tho bear
ing surface of the wheels, making
them rollers, smoothing and compact-'
Ing tho roadway, instead of knife-Uka j
disks which cut it into ruts.
Another important law, relating to j
the Improvement of the public roads, I
was passed, amending the act of 1891), 1
which provided for the "gathering of J
stone from the highways" once each
month during the summer season. The
amendment provides a penalty, not ex
ceeding $to, to lie collected, with costs
of suit, from tho supervisors for fail
ure to pick the stones from off the
public roads once each month, for the
months of May, June, August and
A law was passed for the "protection
of live stock" against infection from
animals dying of contagious or Infec
tious diseases, such as anthrax, black
quarter, hog cholera, swine plague, ra
bies or glanders. Tho carcass of such
animals must lie disposed of in such a
way ns to effectively destroy or so-'
qucster the poison, germ, parasite or '
infective agent of the disease, with
which the animal was afflicted at tho
time Of death. This supplanting the for
mer careless methods, which dragged
the carcass to the woods, to become
the prey of dogs or birds, or to contain-
lnate streams, is a wise precaution, .
and will protect tho owners of live
stock from ignorant or careless neigh
bors. A law was enacted which provides
for the 'Inspection of concentrated
commercial cattle feeds." Investigation
showed that many of tho cattle feeds
upon the markets of Pennsylvania aro ,
adulterated so as to ho almost worth- !
less. The purchasers of such feeds
had no way of discovering their char
acter without going to great trouble
and expense, nnd thus many thousands
of dollars were lost nntiualy by the i
farmers In tho purchase of such worth
less material. This law require! the 1
tagging of all packages containing con- 1
centrated feeding stuffs, such as lin
seed meals, cotton seed meals, gluten
meals, maize feeds, starch feeds, sugar
feeds, drlef brewers' grains, malt
sprouts, hominy foods, coroalino feeds,
rice meals, ground beef or fish straps, 1
ami all other materials of a similar
nature, giving the percentage of crude
fat and protein. It is made the duty of
the secretary of agriculture to have the
goods inspected .and to bring to pun
ishment all who violate the law.
That a portion of the "Vinegar Law,"
Which required cider vinegar to con
tain not less than four per cent, of
acidity nnd one and one-half per cent.
of solids, was repealed, making the
present law to require that cider vine-1
gar shall be "pure and bo mado of !
the kind of fruit marked upon the cask ,
or barrel." The barrel must also be
marked with the name and address
of the manufacturer.
INSPECTION OF NURSERIES.
A law for the "inspection of nur- j
series" and the tagging 01 all nackages
I of nursery stock with a copy of tho
certificate of the secretary of agricul
ture, stating that tho nursery is ap
parently free from San Jose scale or !
other such dangerously injurious In
sect pest or pests was also enacted. To
sell nursery stock, cuttings or shoots
without such a certificate is a misda
tneanor, and the nurserynjan or agent
who does so is liable to arrest and
punishment. This Is a most valuable
law. It affects tho entire fruit industry
of the state, and makes it now poa-;
siblo to protect our orchards from
those destructive insects, whose 1
spread has, heretofore, been unre- I
There Is also tho "oleomargarine
act," about which there was so much
discussion at the time of its passage.
No state has a more stringent law pro
tecting the dairy industry against this
fraud than Pennsylvania, and all of
the cases, so far tried under H, have
The old law regulating the scale of
"renovated butter" was repealed and a
stringent license law enacted In its
There were also laws providing for
Investigation into the "diseases of do
mestic animals," for the "protection
of song and insectivorous birds;" pro
hibiting the sale of "Impure milk and
cream;" amending the "cheese law;"
requiring "fruit Juice" on sale to be
pure: protecting "timber against Are;"
prohibiting the "coloring of milk or
cream;" regulating the "balling of
bay;" providing for "rebates on land:
In forest trees; " erecting a department j
of forestry, together with a number of
minor laws which together make up
the 33 mentioned.
SCHOOL SYSTEM DEVELOPED.
Perhaps the most important of all
of the laws passed by the legislature
affecting agricultural people, is that
which provides for the "centralizing
of the public schools" In the town
ships, and for the erection of high
schools in the country districts. No
state h:us now more advanced legisla
tion, in this direction than ours and
this Is due to the action of the legis
lature of 1901.
No law passed by any legislature
since the enactment of the consolida
tion act of 1S5- Is more valuable to
country people than this. Agricultural
people, under tho provisions of the
latter law can give an education at
home to their children equal to that
now given In the best town or city
schools. This one act, in the Interests
of agriculture, is worth all that the
cost to the people of the state.
Whoever else may see fit to criticise
tho late legislature, agricultural peo
ple can have no cause to do other than
praise it, for its service to their inter
ests. The enemies of the administration
are continually calling attention to
what they regard as "bad legislation,"
hut are careful not to attempt to prove
any of their allegations, or to give the
legislature credit for the many clearly
beneficial acts which it enacted. Their
partlanshlp is run mad, antl has blind
ed their eyes to all excellence In the
Republican party. In their views there
is no good thing fir person outside of
Democracy, Populism and fusion.
The farmers will vote to sustain tho
rational administration by the Repub
lican party, which has brought such
unparalleled prosperity to the country,
has opened up mills, mines and manu
facture! s. until profitable markets for
all agricultural products are found in
almost every district in our state, and
to uphold the state administration in
its efforts to benefit country people r.s
exhibited in the salutory legislation it
enacted in their interest during tho
session of 1901.
Republicans in Allegheny County
Once More In Accord.
ALL FOR THE FARTY NOMINEES
Governor Stcne Makc9 the Principal
Address at a Remarkable Demon
stration, In Which All Elements
A source of gratification to every
Republican in Pennsylvania must have
been the great Republican demonstra
tion ami mass meeting held in Pitts
burg last Saturday night, when repre
sentatives of every element among
Republicans in western Pennsylvania
assembled to ratify the action of the
Republican state convention in placing
in nomination Justice William P. Pot
ter, of Allegheny, for justice of the su
preme court, ami Frank G. Harris, of
Clearfield, for state treasurer.
Flinn men nnd anti-FHnn men, regu
lar Republicans of years standing and
former insurgent Republicans and
ninny Democrats, disgusted with their,
present party leadership, were present,
and ail cheered lustily tho sentiments
of the several speakers in advocating
the election of the candidates on tho
Republican ticket, and in urging the
polling of the largest Republican vote
ever gotten out at a state election.
The significance of this gathering
cannot be over-estimated.
This meeting means the opening of
an aggressive campaign in the western
counties, antl It was a keen disappoint
ment to the insurgent Republicans,
who have been seeking to organize tho
Union party, with the idea of combin
ing with the Democrats to defeat the
nominees of the Republican organiza
tion whenever such a course will be to
tho advantage of those who are in
the minority in the Republican party
and cannot get the ofilces they seek.
Governor William A. Stone was the
principal speaker at tho Pittsburg
meeting, and he was very cordially re
ceived. He covered the several issues
of the canvass in a thoughtful speech,
and after dissecting the Democratic
state platform, he told of what the Re
publican party had done and in what
respect the peoplo are indebted to its
THE ISSUES REVIEWED.
Among other things ho said:
"The last legislature, like every
other legislative body, must be Judged
by its work, not by the bills it did not
pass, nor by the short comings of its
Individual members, but by the bills
that did pass. The first great crime
which this wicked legislature com
mitted, in the opinion of the Demo
cratic convention, was the re-election
of Senator Quay. If this was a crime.
It was a crime in which the people of
Pennsylvania Jointly participated. It
was but the ratification of an Issue
that was settled by the people at the
previous November election. It settled
one thing in the Republican party for
all time, and that Is that the clll of
the majority shall rule It, and when
it was settled every one in the yii ty,
those who opposn! him as well as
those who favored bim. were glad of
it, and no one has questioned it since,
except the Democratic convention.
"The Democratic platform says that
"The legislature proceeded to that oth
er and greater robbery of the railway
franchises cf the s ate worth millions
to the plunderers and stripping every
city, town and township in the com
monwealth of the proper control of
Its streets for trolley improvements.'
This is a most ridiculous statement, as
well as a false one, and made with the
thought tht no one would take the
pains to read the laws, but would take
their word for iL The law relating to
surface street railways Is simply an
amendment to the street railway act
of 18S9, and glvtis the councils of cities
and towns the right to permit the oc
cupation of streets that other com
panies have abandoned, but Still claim
to have exclusive rights upon.
"The elevated and underground rail
way law ts new and became necessary
to relieve thickly congested streets in
large cities. The supreme court had
decided that there was no authority to
build ami operate an elevated railway.
Both laws, however, provido that the
consent of councils must first be ob
tained. The laws simply give the
power to councils to grant the righL
There is not nnd cannot be any valid
objection to the laws, because the con
sent to build must first be obtained
from the people affected through their
representatives in councils. There
may be applications to councils for
rights over streets where the necessity
for roads is disputed, but this Is a
question for the people themselves to
determine through their representa
tives In council. The laws are wholly
unobjectionable. The railways con
templated in many Instances may be
objectionable. If a city or town should
object to a railroad through it that
13 no reason why there should bo no
railroad laws. Hut surely these laws
do not 'strip every city, town nnd
township in the commonwealth of the
proper control of its streets,' as
charged in the Democratic platform.
MANY GOOD GENERAL LAWS.
"I will not discuss local laws af
fescting cith s of the different classes,
nor the laws specially affecting bor
oughs and townships. It will be found
that the repri sentatives of the major
ity of the municipalities affected by
the local laws passed supported them
nnd voted lor their passage. The gen
eral laws passeii by this legislature
nrc very Important. I undertake to
say thai this last legislature passed
more good and necessary general laws
than any legislature within tho last "0
years. I have only time to mention a
few of them. The act establishing
the department of forestry is one of
the first, as Well as one of the most
important. Tiie state ha3 purchased
and agreed to purchase about 324,000
acres ot forest land at an average
cost of $1.88 per sere. These lands
have already largely increased, in
value. Th 1 commission was offered
the other day (25,000 in advance of
what they pal 1 for one targe tract. In
a few years these lands will produce
a considerable suite revenue from the
sale of ripened timber, coal and oil.
Germany gels the getter part of her
revenue from her forests. Resides,
the forests are preserved; the streams
are protected, the climate Is kept more
even and the people can use them as
parks for hunting and fishing and
camping. We are doing well with this
undertaking. It is popular with tho
people, but according to tho Demo
cratic platform the commission is
honeycombed with fraud, for this is a
separate depart mi nt under this law.
"Tho law passed directing that phy
sical culture shall be taught in tho
public schools was demanded by the
German citizens of the state. They
have been trying to have this law
passed for years. The law punishing
kidnappers of children with imprison
ment for life meets a popular demand.
The only objection to it is that it is
not severe enough. This legislature
remedied one evil of long standing. It
passed a law providing that when
for a year a Judge is unable to attend
to his duties, he may be retired on
half salary for tho balance of the
term for which he was elected, If he
is permanently disabled, nnd a new
Judge elected to fill his place. In n
number of instances there have been
Judges unable to hold their courts for
years until they died. It saves mon(y
to the state, for it dispenses with tho
necessity of "ailing other judges on
extra pay and gives the peopdo op
portunity to have their cases dLsposed
of by a Judge of their own counties.
"The law commuting sentences of
prisoners passed last winter has been
knocking at the legislature for years.
AH the prison societies and the prison
officials urged this law. Thoso who
visit prisons and are interested in
the reformation of prisoners all fa
vored it. The yellow journals did not
oppose it until it passed, and then they
said that we were going to lot the
prisoners all out of jail and turn them
loose upon the community. The pris
oners aro not discharged, but paroled,
nnd during the time if they commit a
crime they must go back and serve
the time commuted.
THE JUVENILE COURT DILL.
"Tho Juvenile court law is an ex
cellent law. It allows children under
16 years of ago to be trletl by them
selves in a r.eparito court room, and
when in custody they are not incarce
rated with older criminals.
"The oleomargarine law Is the cul
mination of the efforts of the farmers
and dairymen for years. They have
got a law to suit them. Under this
law if a man cats oleo he must eat
It with his eyes open, as well as his

ting the people to elect their mine in

The law prohibiting the marriage of
first cousins is a bod law. It will
reduce the number of idiots and im
beciles in the state.
STRONG CAPITAL COMMISSION.
"We appropriated four millions of
dollars to build a new capltol building.
Who Is there In this state who does
not wish to see at Harrisburg a cap
ltol building that will be a credit to
the state? Now let me tell you some
thing. Tho four men who have been
appointed commissioners to complete
the capltol building are honest and
capable men. That capltol will be
completed within the timo named in
the law and for the money named in
the law. Not a dollar more will bo ex
pended and not a day's more time will
be asked. The yellow journals could
not assail the personal character ol
the commissioners because these men
are known throughout the state. They
were greatly disappointed. They had
cartooned the capltol building as a
plum tree and said I was saving it for
'the gang' and would shake it fur
their benefit, and when they found
that I had done Just what I always in
tended to do and had appointed an
honest commission they were disap

The decision of t ho supreme court that

no doubt about the power to do It and
