Despite the severity of the weather
huudreds of farmers are at Statu Col

STATE GRANGE DEMANDS
Before tho State Grange concluded
its business at Butler last week it
passed a resolution calling for an in
vestigation "of the charge of Gover
nor Stuart, when vetoing the school
code, that there was interlineations
made after the passage of the bill."
The resolution demands that the guilty
persons he punished. Other resolutions
passed follow :
Censuring the National Grange for
wasting time on trival matters to the
detriment of progressive issues.
Endorsing tho call for a conference
of state granges on a paioels post.
Censuring the National Grange for
expelling from the sixth degree J. W.
Helme, of Adrian, Mich., and George
P. Hap ton, of New York.
Advocating the changing of time at
which Congiessmen take their seats,
advancing their inauguration to a
time nearer their election.
Advocating that all state officers bo
nominated at direct primaries.
Protesting agaiust the passage of a
bill to discontinue the printing of en
velopes by the government.

Commending Hie State department

AS RESULT OF

tangle* that have resulted In regard to
the terms of certain public officers In
the cities, boroughs and townships a*
a roult nf the amendment* made to
the State Constitution at the la*t elec
tion. Hornugh Solicitor Edward S.
Ocarhart ha* addressed a oommuiiica
lion to the borough council warning
it ot grave risk* and dangers And ex
plaining what course may be safely
Mr. Gearhart ntates that it Is con
ceded that the lerms of afloouncilmcn
elected in 1008 for three veals are ex
tended until the tlrst Monday of Dec
euiber, Hill, and their successors will
be elected at the November election
of Hill and shall serve for four years.
The terms of all oomioilmcn elected
in P.WW shall be extended to the first
Monday of December HUH.
But the grave question feems to be,
when shall the council elected in Nov
ember, 1011, be organized? SVhen are
the president, secretary aud other
otficials of the council aud borough
and whose terms expire under the pre
sent law on the first Monday of March,
1911, to be elected'/ Who is to thus
sin " > between the first Mondiy ill
March, 1011, mid the first Monday in
December, 1011? Or, should the legis
lature fix a still later time for the re
oigauixatiou of council than the first
Monday of December, 1011, who is to
thus serve from the first Monday in
March, 1011, until such later time?
These arc practical questi ms, Mr.
Gearthart says, that either remedial
legislation or the courts must deter
mine. In the absence of action of gome
sort from either one of the above
sources the borough solicitor advises
that the only safe course for council
to pursue would be for its entire mem
bership to convene in regular session
on the first Monday of March, 1011,
the same as formerly, and re-elect all
of its present oflicials whose terms
would expire at that time to continue
to serve in their respective capacities
until the regulai organization of the
next couueil on the first Mouday of
December, 1011, or until such time
| after that as the next legislature or
i the court must designate.
Should the offloials not bo temporari
ily re-elected as above advised and

I ended on the first Monday of March,

the latter date aud the first Monday of

( null and void and illegal for the sim

NEW JUDICIAL DISTRICT
The Selinsgrove Times states that
there is much discussion over the pro
position of combining the judicial dis
trict of Union and Snyder counties
with that of Northumberland. In the
Union-Snydei district there is scarce
ly enough business to keep a law judge
busy, while the two judges now in
Northumberland county could readily
take care of the additional business
from Union aud Snyder.
Should the districts bo combined by
the legislature at its coming session it
would probably go into effect before
the judicial election ne: i year. Sny
der and Union are normally Republi
can counties and Northumberland is
evenly divided, so a consolidation
would likely throw the balance in
favor of the Republicans. Both judges
in Northumberland county now are
FIRE IN BERWICK SCHOOL
Hix hundred pupils' lives were en
dangered in the Berwick High Srliool
building. when a file occurred iu the
supply room at about 11 o'clock Mon
day morning. Pvvsence of mind and
quick action on the part of the teach
ers and their pupils alone paved a
panic, tlie probable destruction of the
building, and mavhe a terrible IOSR of
life As it was the flames were ex
tinguished with a loss of about fliOO.
John llaas,teacher of the sixth grade
ot what is known as the "old wing'
of the building noticed a small bit of
smoke come culling through under the
door of the supply room, which opens
into liis room. Ito quietly informed
his pupils that they would Le allowed
togo home for the rest of the morn
ing, and as is the custom when dis
missing he bad them march out of the
room and building. Then he went up
stair; and told Prof, Sigmau.the prin
cipal, of the tire, aud he quickly saw
that all of the (100 pupils were dismiss
ed However, before they could all be
gotten out siuoke commenced to Jill
the building and there was a cry of
lire. The pupils remained oiderly,
however, and all got out of the build
ing without any undue excitement.
Homo of the larger boys assisted the
two t 'achers in carrying water aud
throwing it into the room. In the
meantime an alarm of firu had been
turned iu, and the Are department re
sponded . but its aid was unnecessary.
The lire was due to an overheated
furnace and tablets, pencils and other
upplie s were destroyed.

MAY GET AN ARMORY
The prospect of an armory being
eracted in Danville by the State is
ag.\in brought prominently to the fore
by the aumwnceinent of the program
which the State armory board will
put up to the next legislature. The
board will ask for an ippropiiatiou
sufficient togo ahead at once with the
ooastruction af armories for all of the
National Guard organizations in the
State. To ac.tnnplish this the legislat
ure will be asked to appropriate a sum
of $1,500,000 for construction, ijaiO.OOO
for maintenance and £IO,BOO to meet
the deficit ol maintenance charges this
This request will be urged on the
ground that ir, will not only enable
the commonwealth to complete its
building prorgaui, I ut will be advant
ageous because in many instances,
through donations of land, the state
will receive considerable more value
thas it invests in building
The request of $1 .iiOO.OOO for build
ing purposes is based on a program to
/•onstrui t an armory for every organ
ization in the National Guard in the
slate, outside of Philadelphia Pitts
burg and Scranton an.l about nine
teen other cities and towns being al
ready cared for. In the list is $25,000
for each of the infantry companies
and |as,ooo for each battery of artil
lery and ftoop of cavalry.
A maintenance item of fiO.OOO is
based on the legal reqniiement with
the income of companies from rent of
armories taken into aooouut. This
vear there was a deficit of SIO,OOO in
the maintenance account, hast session
the board asked for $900,000 and got
$350,000, the suui of SIOO,OOO being cut
off the hill as passed by tiie governor
in his reduction of appropriations.
