THE FARR BILL.
The Farr eight hour bill came up .for
passage and a spirited debate followed.
Mr. Bliss moved to go Into committee
,of the whole to amend the bill by mak
ing It general In Its application. A
single objection ruled the motion out of
order and then Mr. Bliss moved to re
consider the vote by which the bill
passed third reading. This was voted
down by 10S to 78, after which the
bill-passed finally by 113 to 61.
The house reversed Itself this- after
noon and adopted a resolution offered
by Mr. Moore- of Philadelphia, that
when It adjourn this evening it be to
meet Thursday noon. A roll call was
demanded on the resolution and the
vote was 82 yeas to C3 nays. The pur
pose of the recess Is to give the mem
bers a chance to attend the Internation
al Business Congress to be held to
morrow at Philadelphia under the aus
pices of the Commercial Museum.
The order of business for the after
noon was bills on third reading. Tho
Pittsburg "Ripper" was the second on
the calendar and was read at length
and then postponed for the present on
motion of Mr. Tlllbrook, of Allegheny.
This puts the bill in position to be
called up next Tuesday.
Mi. Tlllbrook says he will call It up
at that time, and Insist on It being

that will be heard of the measure this
The vote by which the bill to re
peal the act requiring vacclnntlon of
school children was defeated, was re
considered and again voted down. The
bill to prevent and punish prize fight
ing was also defeated.
The house adjourned nt 5.40 o'clock
until 8 p. m.
The order of business at tho evening
session was scnato bill on second read
ing. When the Smith bill changing the
present methods of distributing tho
public school fund was reached Mr.
Stewart, of Philadelphia, tried to put
In two Important amendments. One
provides that In school districts where
night schools are maintained for not
more than four months of the year, one
half of the total number of teachers
employed In the schools shall be In
cluded In the number of paid teachers
regularly employed In the full annual
term of the district. The other ilxed
the minimum school term at seven
months. Both amendments were de
feated by an overwhelming vote.
Chairman Hammond, of the educa
tional committee, appealed to the
house to pass the bill asR stood. He
argued If this would be done that It
would bo sent back to committee after
second reading for a hearing. An
agreement was the result and the bill
was sent back to committee. The
measure as It now stands divides the
fund by giving one third -according
to the number of Bchools, one third on
the number of school children and the
balance on the number of taxables. The
measure has passed the senate and the
prospects for it becoming a law are
The Becker three fifths bill was
was among those which pased second
reading. When It was reached Mr.
Stewart of Philadelphia, took the
floor and made a vigorous speech
against It. He said all the best citi
zens of Philadelphia have entered their
solemn protest against the measure.
Mr. Stewart admitted that his opposi
tion would have no effect for the
"boys" had been lined up for the bill.
The hotel lobbies, boarding houses and
other public places had been scored by
runners for the bill and there was no
show for Its defeat on second reading.
Mr. Woodruff, of Philadelphia, made
a strong speech against the bill. He
claimed there was no body back of It
but a handful of ambitious politicians
who are seeking to control the political
machine of tho city, and have con
ceived this method of standing the
people out In the cold. In the face of
the almost unanimous protest of the
people and the newspapers the legisla
ture Is asked to pass this and undo
the good results of the Bullitt act.
The only persons asking for the bill
are a class of politicians who marked
their entrance In control of municipal
affairs by defeating a man who for
twenty years had served as port war
den because, forsooth, he bowed to no
political boss. The citizens of Phila
delphia have asked for a hearing on
the bill and it has been refused them.
Mr. Adams, of Philadelphia, said he
voted a week ago against recommit
ting the bill because he knew that If
It was sent back to committee It; would
be killed. Ho thought It was a good
measure, and If It became a law would
redound to the good of the city of Phil
adelphia. This ended the discussion
and the bill passed by a viva voce
Several other bills passed second
reading and bills extending the exemp
tion act of May 13, 1876, to soda water
fountains and fixtures; authorizing
boroughs to require the planting of
shade trees along public streets by the
owners of abutting property were de
feated. The house adjourned at 10
o'clock until Thursday at 12 o'clock.

Altoona, Pa., June 1. Orders have
been Issued for the Pennsylvania Rail
road Machine shops to work fifty hours
a week, and the Juniata shops 45 hours,
commencing tomorrow. Orders for 10
new class "P" passenger locomotives

day, nnd flvo were placed at the
Juniata shops. The prospects for am
ple summer work are bright, and the
employes are Jubilant In consequence.
The shops have been working very
poorly for more than a year.
In an Interview today a prominent
Pennsylvania Railroad official said:
"We have decided to build 65 new lo
comotives at the Altoona shops during
the remainder of the year 1897. This
will keep all the departments on an
easy working basis, and at the same
time allow for an Increase In repair
work as the traffic Increases.
"I think the backbone of the period
of depression Is almost broken, and
that an era of prosperity Is dawning,

improvement must necessarily be slow.

Some time ago De Garls was warned
by Chief Carter and the burgess that
the Salvationists must desist from
holding their meetings on the main
streets, but he treated their warning
with contempt and defiance, saying
that hq army would beat its drum and
hold street meetings as long as It
pleased, as God .was on Its side.
The borough officers are determined
to put a stop to the street meetings,
and every member of the army will be
arristed If they do not desist. The
army's noise has caused a number of
serious runaways and several bad acci
dents. This corps Is the largest In Cheater
