Resclved, That the members of this
house favor tho immediate enactment
Into a law of tho tills taxing brewers and
respectfully request that honorable body,
the senate to give the. bills preference
over other rcvfnuo bills now pending In
the senate, thereby sparing the people of
this commonwealth from paying a tax
upon the necessities of life and the prod
uct of their Industry.
Mr. Nesbltt, of Northumberland, of
fered tho following -resolution, which
lies over one day:
That tho commission of public build
ings and grounds bo and Is hereby re
quested to lay before the house the
bills, or copies of the bills, that have

Mr. Bliss, of Delaware, reported from
the rules committee the order of busi
ness for the next two days. Tomor
row will be given up to the considera
tion of senate bills on third reading
and llnal passage. Tho order for the
following day will be senate and house
bills on third reading and final pas
sage. MP. BOGEIt EXPLAINS.
Mr. Boger, of Philadelphia, rose to
a question of privilege and stated that
he was reported by the Legislative Rec
ord as having voted in the negative
last Thursday against his bill increas
ing the penalty for election repeating
from three months' imprisonment to
five years. He explained that he was
unavoidably absent from Harrlsburg
at tho time, and that If he had been
here he would havo voted for the bill.
Mr. Storr, of Philadelphia, moved to
reconsider the vote by which the bill
was defeated. Tho motion prevailed
by a votofrf 133 to 14 and the bill pass
ed finally by 130 yeas to 21 nays.
When tho bill to tax bicycles, pleas
ure carriages and traction engines was
reached several attempts were made to
amend It. The most Important was
that proposition of Mr. Baldwin, of
Delaware, to exempt bicycles and tri
cycles owned by children under four
teen years. All the amendments were
defeated, but a motion to go Into the
committee of tho whole carried by a
vote of 72 to 45. The motions to amend
were renewed and all were voted down,
except that exempting bicycles and
tricycles not equipped with pneumatic
tires. The report of the committee,
was adopted and the bill passed third
reading and was laid aside for print
ing. The remainder of the session was
given up to the reading of the reports
of tho committee to ascertain the
number of aliens quartered upon the
state and the committee to investigate
the condition of the minor's In the an

In the senate this evening, Mr. Fllnn
introduced a resolution asking that
the finance committee be discharged
from the further consideration of one
of the Bliss beer bills, which taxes beer
brewed In this state one and one-half
cents a gallon, and that the bill be
placed on the calendar. In support of
the resolution Mr. Fllnn said that the
state was at Its wits ends to raise
sufficient revenue, and that the bill
ought to be placed on the calendar so
that It could be considered. The res
olution, however, was defeated by a
vote of 5 to 14.
By a unanimous vote, the defeat of
the Clarency building society bill, upon
motion of Mr. Osbourn, was reconsid
ered and It was then agreed to post
pone tlte further consideration of tho
measure for the present. Tho commit
tee on forestry reported to the senate
that It had negatived the bill providing
for the repeal of forestry reservations
The senate concurred In the house
resolution that provides for extending
the time to Inquire into the oleomar
garine scandal until the next session
of tho legislature.
After passing a batch of bills on
first and second reading, tho senate
adjourned until tomorrow morning.
