any haphazard manner. It is run
upon a system complete In every de

OF LEGISLATURE j
IMPORTANT MATTERS TO BE
CONSIDERED NEW SCIIOOIj
CODE, STATE FISHERIES' DE
PARTMENT, RAIIiROAD COM
MISSION, ETC., WILL KEEP
A SS EM H I j YM EN OCCUPIED.
The coming session of tho Stato
Legislature will probably bo tho
most noteworthy of recent years, and
while It is predicted that the session
will be a short one. many important
bills nnd other specinl features will
mark tho proceedings.
Tho most Important thing nfter
the convening of tho General Assem
bly on January 3, will be tho inau
guration of Governor-elect Toner on
January 17. The next day botli
branches of the Legislature will meet
to elect a United States Senator to
succeed George A. Oliver, whose
term is about to expiro and who is
a candidate for re-election.
After tho Senntorship is disposed
of tho Legislature will immediately
get down to business. Probably the
two most Important matters are the
several amendments to the State
constitution and tho proposed now
school code. Among the bills which
will be presented early in the com
ing session will be one to carry out
Governor-elect Tener's expression in
favor of increase of the powers of
the State Railroad Commission.
Tliis measure will be Introduced by
Senator Edwin H. Vare, of Philadel
phia. Senator Vare has announced
that he will take charge of the bill
and It is presumed that it will be
pushed vigorously from the start.
The chief change will probably be :
regarding power to enforce recom-jto
meudations, which the commission
can do only through other depart
ments. It is believed that direct
power, such as is enjoyed by every
other department in charge of execu
tion of laws and regulations will he
conferred. The limitation of the
powers of the commission has con
siderably handicapped It, although
in the case of several of the big rail
roads nnd trolley lines recommenda
tions have been accepted.
A lively legislative fight is look
ed for over the proposed bill of the
Stato fisheries department to get
control of lakes In the northeastern
section. There are about twenty,
one-half of which the'State controls.
The.'rest'are owned by indivlduals.or,
organizations.'' Tho 'department
claims that these lakes, which aro
mainly In Wayne and Susquehanna
counties are needed for extension
of the Stato lish propagation, but it
is contended by opponents of the
scheme that the department already
lias all it can care for and that turn
ing them over to tho fish authorities
would take them out of water supply
and water power availability as well
as interfere with tho State's conser
vation policy. Some years ago a
similar effort was made, but the
legislature declined to grant the re
quest. This is the only bill the de
partment may have, but a bill to
change the status of carp is likely
to appear from certain quarters not
in sympathy with tho fisheries de
partment. Considerable sentiment has al
ready been aroused in the state by
the talk of having a bill presented
for repeal of the law prohibiting
fishing on Sundays. This move has
been under way for some time Inside
the United Sportsmen's organiza
tions, with which, however, some
people connected with the Stato fish
eries department are more or less In
Some time ago a statement was
mado that a number of the sports
men's camps were voting In favor of
such a bill. Since then people op
posed to Sunday fishing havo been
getting busy with the members-elect
of tho next Legislature.
BIG STATE ROAD. !
To Offer Bill For Road Which Will
Connect All Pennsylvania Cities.
Another bill providing for the
building of a network of stato high
ways throughout Pennsylvania has
been drawn up by the Pennsylvania
Motor Federation and will be pre
sented at tho next session of tho leg
islature which begins next month at
Harrlsburg. It is tho purpose of this
bill to securo a road which will con
nect every important city In tho
Olflcors of the Federation have had
several consultations witli Governor-
elect Toner and it is snid that ho is
In favor of Increasing the approprla
ton for building and maintaining
roads. Several of tho legislators
havo also been nsked to support the
bill nnd it appears now as though it
will bo easy to get enough votes to
Tho Federation will also ask for
tho repeal of tho Act of May 10,
1909, which placed tho cost of main
taining tho condemned toll ronds on
the municipalities instead of on tho
counties. This Is tho first stop to
ward the abolition of tho toll gntes.

Hon. W. M. Nelson, Equinunk, is,
in his S5th year of his ago. His
health Is especially good this winter
for one of his age. Notwithstanding,
he has almost despaired of living to
see tho completion of the D. & E.
railroad, which, according to the
original survey, is to run through
Equlnunk. One of the problems Just
at present which Is of more import
ance to a majority of the residents
of that village, is the drinking water
supply, which at this time Is very
short. Most of the springs and wells
that have not gone dry arc froze
up. Anticipating just such a possi
ble situation, William Bleck bought
a gasoline engine to pump water
from a well near the hotel to his
reservoir. The reservoir, which Is of
concrete, 12x12 feet and 5 feet
deon. Is located on the bluff a short
distance east of the hotel. Thanks
this forethought, in addition to
supplying his own needs, he also has
a supply for his neighbors.
New Method State Roadway Making
Being Tried Out.
A short section of the Harrlsburg
and Llnglestown pike, which In 1907
was rebuilt by State aid funds, has
just been torn up near Paxtonia and
a new top surface Is now being laid.
The old road at that point had a sur
face of concrete on it. The constant
wear of the wagons for over three
years, however, cut down tho con
crete in ruts and during the past
'week or two a force of men havo
been nmking -a now roadway there.
tA This consists of a concrete made
iwitli coment,, sand, and shalo found
in the community." The shalo used
on tho surface is very line and tho
builders predict that when the road
is worn a little the surface will be
as smooth as an asphalted street.
The new road is made with little
hump in the centre, being almost

Many of the schools throughout

donations are very gratefully re

NO MONEY ADVANCED
FOR STATU LEGISLATORS.
Hnrrlsburg, Pa., Doc. 2C. Attor
ney General M. Hampton Todd In
an opinion rendered to Stato Treas
urer C. Frederick Wright rulos no
advances on salary or mlleago
members of the legislature can
mado without the specific approprln-
Hon as required by the act of 1909.
This will prevent members of tho
legislature receiving the customary
advance in salaries on tho first day
of tho session. No money will he
paid to them until a bill making
a salary appropriation is passed and
a warrant drawn for each member.
Mr. Wright had asked the attor
ney general for effect of the specific
appropriation act on such pay
ments. "Hog Is Dogs" In Paterson, N. .1.

NEW SYSTEM FOR HANDLING
WHITE HOUSE VISITORS.
Washington, Dec. 23. A now
system of handling caJlers at the ex
ecutive offices of the White House
has just been put into operation by i
Secretary Charles Dyer Norton
Heretofore visitors hoping to pene
trate to the President's private of
fice have been dealt with mainly by
Secretary Norton or Assistant Secre
tary Forster, both of whom attempt
ed the task of weeding out the un
desirables. Now Secretary Norton has put tho
secret service operatives at the
White House to work. Two opera
tives charged with the safety of the
President are always on duty at the
executive offices during the time
that the President is in his office.
Formerly they waited In the recep
tion room and mingled unostenta
tiously with the heterogenous crowd
of callers. Apparently they had no
connection with the White House
Norton, however, has. put them to
work handling tho callers, in the
capacity of ushers. It is their busi
ness to interview every caller, ascer
tain his business, size him up, and in
all ways possible facilitate their
quick disposal. They are particu
larly under secretaries nowadays,
and are supposed to weed out call
ers of tho crank vnriety, and switch
visitors who really haven't any im
perative business with the executive
over to Secretary Norton. The new i
duties do not Interfere with their
specified duty of personally sizing up J
an wnue House caners. un tno con
trary. It gives them a better chance
to Inspect visitors.
i'ho new plan has worked like a
charm. Never before in the Taft ad
ministration has the President been
able to dispose of so many visitors.
WANT TO RESTOCK STREAMS.
Lycoming County Sportsmen Being
Interested in Big Project.
Wllliarasport, Dec. 2G. Trout fish
erman throughout the county are in
terested In n plan fathered by City
Superintendent Lose, the dean of that
fraternity, to restock the trout
streams. It is the idea of Mr. Lose
to raise sufficient funds to pay the
freight upon enough fry to stock
all tho larger streams in the county.
Included In tho list are Lycoming,
Loyalsock, Muncy and Pine creeks.
Continued droughts havo so depleted
the stock of speckled beauties that
those who love to fish say it Is neces
sary to pour now life Into the streams
of tho county.
To obtnln tho fry it Is necessary to
mnke application to the Stato Fish
Commissioner, giving data relative
to the location of the stream to bo
stocked and the time when such
stocking Is to take place. The fry Is
shipped without any cost to the pur
chaser aside from the freight charges.
If the money Is raised the streams
will be stocked about the first of
April. After tho Spring thaw, it is
figured, would ho tho psychological
moment to dump tho young stock in
to the mountain wnters. Tho
