Haeeisbttko, -April 24. This afternoon
the Appropriations Committee of the Senate
had a boat with the hill providing an ap

called syndicate schools at McAllisterville,
Chester Springs, Mount Joy and Mercer.
A strong effort is being made by the friends
of these schools to induce the committee to
strike out this amendment, which means
the closing of the schools.
Among those who appeared before the
committee against the amendment were ez
Bepresentative Stranahan, of Mercer;
Thomas Sample, of Pittsburg; Dr. Ziegler,
oiMt. Joy, physician to the school at that
place, ana .Representative xienzier.oi u uu

localities of the four schools who presented
arguments and testimony in their favor.
It is a pretty difficult matter to gauge the
sentiment of the committee, but it is un

moval of the orphans from the present
schools and the placing of them in normal
schools and other suitable institutions,
where they will be removed from the influ

bill will be held in the committee awhile

be a probability of the bill providing for

Uentenant Governor DaTles Comes to Sena

rrEOM A ETATF COBBESPOJfDEJrT.J
Habbisbubg, April 21. Senator Hines
spoke against Kepresentative Hays' bill to
permit oil companies to own stocks and
bonds in other oil companies, but the Senate
passed it finally, notwithstanding Senator
Hines called it a Standard Oil measure.
Senator Hines also fought hard to save
the company store bill, but it lacked nine
votes of enough. The objection urged
against it by some of the speakers was that
it merely forbade corporations to have
company stores. and did not at
lect private concerns, which might
keep as many company stores as they had a
mind to. Some gentlemen honestly believed
the argument to be a valid one against the bill,
while others found It very convenient to hide
behind. Senator Hines jays a number of Sen
ators wbo promised him they would vote for
the bill voted against it. During the debate on
the matter he told the Senate about a conver
sation between himself and Senator Watres,
In which the latter, who to-day opposed the
bill, expressed himself warmly in favor of it.
Senator Hines' revelation was stopped by a
point of order, and President pro tem Grady,
who was on the floor, showgd a disposition to
rub it in on him if possible. Uentenant Gov
ernor Davies, however, wouldn't let Senator
.nines do jumped on Dy ettner senator Grady or
rv aires, kdu bib reproof ox
the former for denartinc from the
merits of the bill to discuss the other
Senator was very mild. The Uentenant
Governor has no love for the President pro
tem, and keens him oat or the chair as much
as possible. He basn't permitted him to sign a
bill this session, and Senator Grady feclsratber
hurt that his name will not appear on a single
law of the Commonwealth unless something
happens between now and adjournment. The
reason for the Lieutenant Governor's dislike
of the President pro tem has never been ex
plained, bat it didn't hurt Senator Hines to
day. SCORING CARNEGIE.
Sir. Wherry Pokei Fan at the Ship Canal
rr&oxA statt correspondent. j
Haeeisbueg, April 24. Mr. Andrews
offered a letter from Mr. Carnegie as a part
of his remarks to-night in favor of the ship
canal resolution introduced by Captain
Bron,of Beaver. Mr. Carnegie in the letter
agreed with a published statement of Mr. An
drews that the canal was a solution of the
anti-discnmination problem. After Mr. An
drews had spoken, Captain Brown explained
that the bill was merely for the appointment of
a commission to assertain and report on the
feasibility of a ship canal.
Immediately Mr. Wherry took tho floor and
said "This House can sea a joke as well as
any one and cannot fail to see the sarcasm of
the canny Scotchman. The gentleman from
Crawford a convert to anti-discrimination.
Good Lord, deliver us."
The Speaker considered Mr. Wberrv per
sonal and called him to order. Mr. Wherry
came to order, and said if be bad said anything
offensive he withdrew it. He welcomed, in
sarcastic vein, Mr. Andrews as a convert to
anti-discrimination, but warned him be conld
not throw dirt in the eyes of the people.
Mr. Jones opposed the bill because it would
be 50 vcars before ocean vessels conld sail np
the Ohio and to the lakes. Mr. Sravo ex
plained that it wasn't tb o ocean they were after
now. but the lakes and the product of the
Northwest The resolution passed finally.

Haeeisbueg, April 24. A mathemati
cal legislator to-day figured out the follow
ing: Giving ten minutes to the call of the
roll on the final passage of each bill, and
the House calendar to-day would require the
Beading Clerk to make a steady call of over
eight and a half hours, there being 53 bills on
final passage. He will call out 10.312 names,
and estimating that his jaw travels an inch
every time, it will cover almost a quarter of a
mile before it sinks to rest on the last name.
Estimating again that the Beading Clerk's
whiskers wave two inches at every call of a
name, they would in the aggregate ware 21,624
inches, which, condensed into a series of (say)
60 waves, would create a breeze in the House
that would put out the electric lights.

THE GENERAL REVENUE BILL PASSED.
Its Operation Will Tax State Institutions

FF.OM X STAFF COERESPOXDEXT.l
Haeeisbueg, April 24. The general
revenue bill passed the Senate finally, to-day,
and goes to the House for concurrence.
There may be some trouble there concerning
the striking out by the Senate of the Neff
amendment permitting the subtraction of
debts from money at interest in making assess
ments. On third reading. Senator Tewmyer tried
unsuccessfully to have slate companies in
cluded among; those exempt from taxation. He
and Senator Reyburu are the only Republicans
who voted against the bill. Three democrats
formed the remainder of the opposition. Sena
tors Beyburn and Newmyer share the opinion
that the tax on money at interest is not wholly
just and may be attended with bad results.
Auditor-General McCament says the pass
age of the bill in its present shape permits the
taxation of such institutions as the Dollar

acknowledged by him to be dead for the
session, but he is not worrying about that,
as h: shares the opinion that existing laws are
ample, "Besides," he says, "a member from
your county, Mr. Bobison, introduced
a bill, which is now in the
Senate, which briefly legalizes manual

self to the Commission that a bill was unneces

liking it would be that much gained. What we
want now is to Increase the appropriation for
the public schools from the 51,500,000 the Ap

2,000,000. Then manual training will be an as

not enough prisoners in the institution to

consideration of it was temporarily postponed.
PRODUCERS MAI ORGANIZE.
Bat Milk Dealers Cannot Come Into the
Knlcbts of Labor.
Master Workman Boss, of D. A. 3, K. of
L., is in favor of the formation of Assem
blies of Milk Producers, as proposed by the
latter recently and reported exclusively in
The Dispatch. He says, however, that
the dealers are not eligible to membership
in the order, that is, they cannot form
assemblies. Three-quarters of the members
of any assembly must be either producers
No saloon-keepers, barkeepers, gamblers,
bankers or brokers are eligible to member
ship in the order either.
The milk dealers, that is, the middle
men, cannot come into the order. Mr. Boss
said that several of the producers who were
now anxious to join the Knights of Labor,
had condemned the order years ago, but
now are beginning to see the benefits of
organization. No application has as yet
been made tor a charter, nor will there be
until alter the next meeting or two.

No Time Like the. Present.
If you expect to need, as you
undoubtedly will, anything in
the way of
Summer Flannels and ' Flan
nelettes For Shirts, Blouse ' Waists,
Tennis Suits and Children's
Dresses, there is no reason
why you should "wait another
day to provide yourself with
them. Very likely your neigh'
bor has almost her entire fam
ily fitted already. We have
been very busy in this depart
ment for several weeks, and
each day the demand for the
goods is increasing.
We have everything, you can
possibly want or need the
greatest variety at the best
prices, 10c to 85c.
Special bargains are the
I2y2c Stripe, Check and
Polka-spot English Flannel
ette, 28 inches wide, fine, sub
stantial goods; full variety of
At 20c we have an excellent
line of Flannels specially
adapted for shirtings.
At 25c and 35c come the
Fine Imported Unshrinkable
Flannels, including some of
the best values at the money we
have ever seen.
At 45c is a line of the same
goods, but of still finer quality,
certainly as pretty and desira
ble as could possibly be shown.
- Undoubtedly the greatest
bargains of all are our 50c and
6ot All-wool, fine French, 33
inch Flannels. These goods
have actually always sold, and
are still sold, as bargains at
65c and j$c. They come in
Black and Orange, Cardinal
and Cream, Black and Gray,
and many other pretty combina
tions of wide and narrow
stripes, beside dozens of differ
ent fancy patterns, spots, etc.
At fi5c we start and stop yon in our beautiful
83-lnehSIlk Stripe Tennis Flannels. A great
variety of tbese, of course, and while many
could be sold for more, none surely conld be
sold nnder onr price.
For rery tony goods yon want to take a look
at our 75c and 85c Flannels. Yes. we bare
them at that price. They would probably brine
almost anythinc we chose to ask. but no use
taking advantage of a good thing to extort
money from the people.
Have yon seen onr new detachable-handled
Parasols? They are the latest contrivance of
the parasol makers, and for convenience to
travelers who wish to pack a nice shade in a
trunk without fear of breaking it, there's
nothing like it. Handle shows little, if any,
mechanism. The only thine abont it which is
not found on all fancy handles is a small nickel
button, which is really an ornament.
We hare told you of onr other Parasols.

(Bear on bard, Mr. Printer):
Government test shows no ammonia, but square dealing, with a trace
of "sand" and back-bone dust.
Then comes the "swell" tailor (like unto them that do advertise:
'Breeches maker to H. R. H. the Prince of Wales.") American, Scotch,
Irish and French Woolens are unknown to them; everything is "English,
ye know," and very "swell" (especially the swollen prices). A coat o
arms (made reversible) goes with every sale. Six months' credit is given
at io per cent per month.-
Government test shows some ammonia and alum, and strong traces;
of "soft soap," ginger bread and pate de foie grass.
Next we'll test the cheap made-to-order-while-you-wait tailors. No
"English, ye know," about them; they're all "Americans" (as any one
knows who look at their goods). Their styles are as loud as a Fourth o
July celebration. No purity to be found in them; cotton worsteds, cotton,
all-woolens, backed up by cheap, flashy trimmings, and tempting "speci
mens"'in their windows are what they depend on. The amount of the;
required little "deposit" (as an evidence of good faith) in nine cases oat
of ten, is full value for the suit.
For comparison, we'll mark
CHEAP TAILORS '
Government test shows lots of ammonia, alum, aloes and "gall,
with a trace of kerosene and caraway seeds.
Here's a clothier whose coat tales are "tailor-made" suits for Jio.
If he sells a $5 suit it is "tailor-made." Everything is "tailor-made."
'Sold an umbrella not long ago and actually told the buyer 'twas "tailor
made." His overalls are "tailor-made," so are his hats. In fact, he's
crazy on the 'tailor-made" nonsense.
We'll mark him
Government test shows not
and ammonia, but more paregoric and lime.
We will now try the "Hurrah," "Great Sacrifice," "Bankrupt Sale'
clothing "feller." He seldom does business under hi3 own namej
'twouldn't do. One half of the 50 or 60 per cent profit he charges, and
gets, on his "mark-down" and "sacrifice" sales, goes, to the newspapers,
to tempt more "suckers." He buys hard stuffs (mostly satinets) poorly
.made Men's suits, that cost him 3, $4, $5, $6, 7, $8, $g and $10 t
marks them all at from S15 to S30; advertises "50 per cent discount;'
'suits for io, worth $20," eta, etc., and pockets a cool 50 to 100 per
cent He's teetotally bad, full of adulteration and impudence.
We'll mark him thus:
THE SACRIFICE SWINDLING
Government test shows no ammonia in him; you can tell by hint
bottom side up on a hot stove, same
, thing in him but al-ka-he, with traces of fly-paper and glucose.
The "hodge-podge" dealer in dry goods, spittoons, calico, cut glass,
physic, embroidery, pills, stockings, molasses candy, hardware, Boys
clothing, eta, begins the season by offering 25 per cent off on boys'
clothing (could as easily give 50 per cent off). Of course everybody
knows what this means nowadays; it's so transparent. Still he will con-
tinue to advertise "boys $10 suits reduced to 7;" "J7 suits reduced to
$5'," "H suits reduced to $3," and "$3 suits reduced to chaos," eta And
wpmen (a few) will continue to swallow the stale bait, hook and alL
