Harrisburg, Pa., May 30. The re
port of the house elections committee
in the Northampton county contest
wilt be filed Tuesday. The Republican
majority decides In favor of the con
testant, Adam Shifter, of Easton, and
recommends that ho be given' the seat
of William II. Leh, of South Enston.
The Democrat-s dissent, and hold that
the sitting member was legally elected.
Shifter is a Republican and will be
Seated vby a party vote. This will givo
Northampton county a solid Republi
can delegation in the house the first
time in' Its history.
When Representative Weiss, of
South Bethlehem, was elected two
years ago by a majority of four he was
the first Republican chosen on a
(straight ticket In Northampton coun
ty. Mr. Weiss was re-elected last No
vember, with Representative Chldsey
nnd Leh. Chldsey Is a Republican and
Leh Is a Democrat. Shifter contested
Leh's seat on the ground that 1S1 votes
cast for him as a candidate of the
Jeffersonlan party should not have
been counted These votes gave him a
majority of 59 on the face of the re
turns. The elections committee decided that
the return judges erred In counting
these votes for Leh and threw them out,
thus giving Schlffer a majority. Chair
man French says It Is a hardship to
deprive Leh of those votes but the
committee could not go back on the
law. The committee recommends
that Leh be allowed his salary, counsel
fees and reasonable expenses for the
contest. He expects to be unseated
and has already drawn his salary and
prepared to vacate as soon as Schlffer
The meeting of the house judiciary
committee will be held Tuesday to con
sider the Spatz bill to deduct from the
assessed valuation of real estate, mort
gages and Hens of record. The meas
ure was sent back to committee for a
hearing after It had passed second
reading. The country members are al
most unanimous for It and will insist
that it be brought out.
The Parr eight-hour bill will be taken
up by tho house Tuesday for final pas
sage. The bill as amended makes eight
hours a legal day's work for mechan
ics, workingmen and laborers In the
employ of the state and municipal cor
porations or otherwise engaged on pub
lic works. It was amended on third
reading by striking out the clause re
lating to wages. The provision that
none but American citizens or those
who declare their purpose to become
such shall be employed on public works
stands. Representative Farr says the
purpose of this precaution Is to prevent
the employment of skilled workingmen
wlio come to Pennsylvania and obtain
employment during the building sea
son and, retire to their native land after
the rush. Many thousands do this an
nually. SCHEME TO TAX OLEO.
The leaders have not agreed upon a
scheme to raise sufficient revenue to
cover the deficit of four millions at the
close of the fiscal year ending Novem
ber 30 next. The latest scheme is to
tax oleo two cents a pound and in
crease the personal property tax from
four to five mills. These propositions,
together with the three bills taxing
bank stocks, the matured and paid up
stock of building and loan associations
apd the bonds of corporations, will not
raise enough revenue to meet the esti
mated state expenses for the next two

From a Staff Correspondent.
Wllkes-Uarre, May 30. The amateur
bicycle race meet held yesterday at
West Side park under the auspices of
the West End Wheelmen was a gigan
tic succeos -although t the weather was
decidedly unfavorable for out door
sport. Some of the cream of Eastern
Pennsylvania's amateur racing men
nnd a crowd of not less than 2,500 persons
were present. C. W. Douglass of Phil
adelphia was the particular star of tho
day. The three first prizes and one e;
ond to his credit.
Several good spills occurred during
the afternoon, tho most severe ones be
ing on tho home stretch In the second
hwit of the one mile handicap. From
this mix up J. W. Curry and C. W.
Hollenbcck wore lemoved from tho
track In a sort of Insensibility. Tho
former came around all right In a
short time" but an examination of the
latter revealed the fact that he was
suffering from a broken colar bono
and three broken ribs. He was re
moved to the city hospital. Will Morst
of Scranton collided with Dlftenderfcr
of Blnghamton In the final of thehnn
dlcap. Both received a few scratches.
Ed Van Vulkenburg of Pittston broke
the state amateur paced half-mile
record, paced by the West End's trip
let team. Van Valkenburg followed
the pace like a veteran, covering the
distance In the remarkable time of 08
1-5. The previous record was 50 1-5.
Of the Scranton riders here, Chns.
Coleman rodo In the best form. Al
though ho won but one prize second
in the handicap he rode well up with
the leaders In all the finishes. He de
veloped a remarkable sprint In the
handicap when within a few yards of
the tape which fact alone gave him sec
ond place in this ev.ent. The Scranton
riders did fairly well, winning two
seconds and two thirds.

NOTES OF THE MEET,
Grounds and track were poorly po
liced. The surging crowd on the track
In front of the grand stand was a con
stant menace to the riders, and offi
cials. ine loiiowing scrantonlnns were
track officials: C. M Price, referee;
W. II. Pierce, Judge; Andrew M. Finn,
Little '"iymmy" Prosser, of this
Pity, a mere midget, rode In the boys
i ace. Immediately upon his appear
ing on the track he became the fav
orite. Tommy didn't win, but he made
a very creditable showing when his
size and the fact that the wheel he rode
wup so large that he was compelled
to slide back nnd fourth with the mo
tion of the pedals. Is taken! in consid
eration. The general outpouring of Wilkes
Barreans to the races set many Scran--ton
wheelmen's brpins at work'trylng
to bolve the old question, "Why can't
Scranton do the same at home?"
Scranton has better local riders than
Wilkes-Barre, and alwayH has had
ilrst-class entries, but tho crowds
Gregory nnd Keller are not in good
condition ns yet. They finished strong
but neither sprinted well. .
Bob White's showing in the one-mile
open was very creditable. In this event
he rode a strong heady race.
Thero was a noticeable change in
position and handle bars this season,
among the racing men. Last year nar
row bars and exceedingly lowi position
was tho "thing." This season things
are drifting to a more oommonsense
position, and wider handle bars.
Four new Scranton racing men who
virtually mado their debut Saturday
are Str6ng, Dawkins, Palmer and
Marsh. Their fast strong finishes in
dicate that they are made of the right
Many Scranton faces were seen on the
track and in the grand stand, among
them were; Charles Carr, Ben Keller,
Harry Kingsley, John Lloyd, R, V.

William Pierce, Will Kennedy, Fiank

out that they can't follow a mills wag
on, but until they do awake to that
fact they are a constant menace to
the real racing men.
