Fate of Mayor Moore's Legisla
tion Shows Power of
Vare3 at Work
By OEORGR NOX McCAIN
narrlsbtirg, April 21. There 1st n
tremendous amount of bluster nnd bluff
being rnlsed In Harrlsburg jiiHt now.
It Is the closing of the legislative scs
flona and Is the season for the usunl
outbreak of jnr.z politics.
The latest development, as I pointed
ont In yesterday's dispatches, , Is tho
projection of Senator Penrose's person
ality Into the melee.
It comes In a very dignified and Pen
roslnn .fashion, though, through Auditor
(icncral -elect Lewis, the senntor's per
mnitl friend. It Is n warning to the
Ascmbly against reckless extravngsnee
and an admonition to go slow In the
matter of appropriations.
It would have been better bod the
fenator's advice been given n trifle ear
lier In the session. The legislators have
lind their appetites whetted for blood
and they would loot the treasury for
their pet schemes If the law permitted.
Clout for One Sclieme
One of the latest and boldest attempts
tn foist on the state a new set of office
holders, with unheard-of power, re
ceived a clout In tlje House last night.
It was Representative Alexander, of
Dilawarc, who exposed the scheme.
The bill was Introduced by Represen
tative llfuett, of Philadelphia, some
time ago. Its author and architect was
said to be former Attorney (Seneral
Francis Khunk Hrown. It bore the
benevolent title of "An net for the re
lief of persons, co-partnerships nnd as
sociations from certain completed and
uncompleted contracts entered into with
the commonwealth and which on ac
count of the war caused them financial
In brief, it proposed to establish a
board of claims to relievo the con
tractors, because It is known that the
commonwealth cannot be sued In the
When the bill renrhed the Senate
Mmebody knocked out the title nnd
revamped the bill till it was almost
Would AIkiIIsIi Appeals
It came back with the distinct prop
osition to create n new "court of
claims ' of three members with the
power of a regulated court, but (and
hero was the unheard-of proposition)
from whose findings there cimim be no
appeal. The exact wording of this part
ot the extraordinary act reads:
"Whenever, nfter hearing nnd de
termination of any claim us aforesaid,
the board shall find in fnor of the con
tractor and tlx the nmount to which
the contractor Is entitled, the nmount so
fixed shall be final itnd conclusive
onanist the contractor and the com
monwealth without tight of nppeal."
The whole bill was a flimsy attempt
to help n lot of contractors, but it was
M clumsily diaphnnous that Its pur
pose whs revealed nt once. The fact
that the whole of tbc original measure
had been eliminated nnd a new bill sub
stituted gave the tiling away. Action
by the Ilousa sent it back to the Sennte
with the word that tho House refused
to concur in the amendments.
Major's Hills I'lchled
Of interest to the city is tho fact that
nil of Major Moore's bills have gone
into the Vnre pickling vat, there to soak
unmolested until thej rot uway in obliv
ion It is unfortunate that matters have
worked themselves around to such n
state that nothing from Philadelphia
can get rt cognition unless It bears the
Mump of the Vnre organization.
And the legislative material that or
ganization has passed Is of Mich a char
acter that It will not bear close sciutlny.
Ihe I'mleivvood bills, the measures to
disrupt the police force, und the cijuiil
rights bill, which threw the Senate into
n uinnlption tit and resulted in n ills
j'luj of bad blood, the exhibition of a
lot of sol) stuff and pseudo-religious
sentiment, are examples of the lattei.

No Attach on Contracts
"The Millar bill Is not nn attack on
contracts," Mr. I'arle continued, "but
nnlj n method of procedure by which
the lights of the public, under such
contracts, may be ilttrrmined by the
courts! Unless these rents arc regulated
by a Judicious commission anil passed (in
by thti courts, the transit question in
Philadelphia can never be solved. Nn
rnto of fare can be charged high tnough
to tnho rare of a present und unified
system of tho city's high-speed lines."
The business association today sent
to tho Public Service Commission n pro
test against the coutlniinncc of seven
cent fnrei bv the P. It. T.
The organization contends the In
crease in fares goes largely to meet
alleged exorbitant rentals paid to the
underlying companies of tho P. It. T.
The complainants contend If the P. It.
T. requires more money to progress und
mnke necessary extensions, this may bu
obtained through a reduction in rentals
to the subsidiary concerns.

panies the right to operate nutobuses

Mr. Heasley said the bill would pre
empt the streets of Philadelphia for
the P. It. T. Co. because another lnw

same streets nnd the P. It. T. now has
a monopoly of the streets here.
