Hnrrlsburg, June 22. The general ap
propriation bill was reported to tho
house this morning from committee
, by Chairman Marshall. The measure
vcarrles with It nn appropriation of $1G,
000,000. It Is not yet In shape for final
passage, and will be sent back to com

TIio Merrick bill providing for the
distribution of the public school fund
by giving one-third on the basis of the

The house got Into a snarl over several
attempts to amend the bill and flnalb
further consideration was postponed
for the present.

adjourned at 1 until 3 o'clock.
Almost the entire afternoon session
cf the house was given up to the con
federation of senate amendments to
house bills. On motion of Mr. North,
of McKean, the Pittsburg "ripper" bill
was recommitted to tho municipal cor
porations committee. The housa re
fused to concur 'n tho senate resolu
tion continuing the committee to in

Pennsylvania until the next S'sstor. of
The governor's veto of the bill au-tho-lzlng
the incorporation of pawn
liinkere wan taken up and Mr. Con
lade, of Philadelphia, appealed ti the
house to pass It over the executive's
head. He said the bill was In tin In
terest of charity and was similar to a
hi" In force In New York city and
many foreign cities. After further dis
cussion the veto was sustained by a
vote of 40 yeas to 90 nays.
HAMILTON ROAD RILL.
The conference report on the Ham
ilton road bill was called up by Mr.
Phillips, of Chester, and adopted by a
vote of 129 to 31. The measure now
goes to tho governor.
Mr. Plollett, of Hradford, who has
fought the bill at every stage, opposed
the report because the bill only carries
with It an annual appropriation of
$.100,000. Mr. Piollctt thought the
amount should be $1,000,000 a year.
He said unless this was done it would
not relieve tho farmer of his cash tax.
The agricultural classes are taxed
more than they can stand and It Is not
fair, Mr. Plolett said, to put additional
burdens upon them by passing such
legislation. Mr. Phillips asked tho
friends of good roads to pass the bill
as reported from committee. The gen
eral Impression Is that tho executive
will veto the measure.
These bills pased finally:
Authorizing courts to inquire into the
validity of judgments confessed and
nlleged to be fraudulent; authorizing
the transfer of wholesale and retail
liquor licenses from one person to an
other and from one place to another;
requiring applicants for liquor licenses
In Philadelphia to Insert the advertise
ment in a German paper.
The Merrick school distribution was
called up and a lively fight took place
between the city members led by Mr.
Stewart, of Philadelphia, who are op
posed to tho proposition and the coun
trymen in chargo of Mr. Moore, of Hut
ler. Mr. Seyfert, of Lancaster, moved
to go Into committee of the whole for
special amendment The country mem
bers opposed this move and the motion
was defeated. Mr. Wenk, of Forest,
moved the previous question on the bill
and on the question shall tho main
question be put the vote was 9G to 64.
The bill then pabsed third reading and
will be laid aside for pilntlng. It will
come up tomorrow for final passage.

BLISS BEER BILLS.
They Are Amended So Radically That
They Are Practically New Meas
nrcs Effects of New Law.
Harrlsburg, June 22. The senate met
this evening to receive the report of
the committee on Judiciary general on
tho two Rllss beer bills. Mr. Grady,
on behalf of tho senate, presented these
reports. The bills were read for the
first time, and then they were amend
ed so radically that they are now
practically new bills.
Mr. Grady explained that the bills
were so amended as to provide for
giaded license fees. In order to make
the bills constitutional. "It was gen
erally held," said he, "that one of the
Rllss bills was unconstitutional, and
these amendments will do away with
this objectionable feature, and at the
s.ime time produce a greater amount
rt tevenuo for the 3tate. It Includes
the scheme to license brewers, distill
ers, wholesalers, bottlers, retailers,
storekeepers and agents for foreign
"These amendments, If agreed to,
will produce an Increase of revenue to
the amount of 053,930 over the pres
ent law, as follows:
Present Law. New Law.
Distillers t 21,000 $ 81.(0)
Brewers 100,000 IW.O'jO
Hottlers 236,300 C-'SJIO
Wholesaler 100,000 250,000
Total $477,300 J1.131.2W
After Mr. Grady made this state
ment, he offered tho amendments,
which were agreed to. Some of the
most Important of them are these:
Brewers-, $1,000, with, these excep
tions: For brewers of less than 750
barrels capacity, $250; less than 1,500
barrels, $500; less than 3,000 barrels,
Distillers, $1,000, with these excep
tions: Distillers with a capacity of
less than 50 barrels, $200; less than 100
ban els, $300; less than 300 barrels, $500.
Wholesalers In cities of the first and
second class, $1,000; in third class and
in townships and boroughs, $300.
Rottlers In cities of the first and sec
ond class, $1,000; in cities of the third
class and In townships and boroughs,
$500. In addition to the foregoing, Mr.
Grndy introduced two other amend
ments to the Rllss bills. One Increases
the retail llqucr license, by adding an
additional $100, to the fee In boroughs
and townships and an additional of
$200 In cities of the first and second
class. These Increases are to be paid
into the state treasury, and It Is esti
mated that additional revenue to the
amount of $350,000 will be thereby
Still another amendment to the Rllss
bl'Is was presented by Mr. Grady. It
provides that the capital stock of all
distilleries Is to be taxed 7 mills.
Mr. Grady introduced a bill to raise
revenue by taxation. It provides for a
reclassification of the mercantile li
cense fees. The old classification Is
followed up to $50,000, and after that
the rates are increased up to concerns
doing a business of $5,000,000, In which
case the license feo is $5,000.
CUBA IS NEAR TO LIBERTY

chance to develop her resources and
hr civilization, of opportunity to tnke
her proper place among tho socially
and industrially progressive peoples of
the western world.
Is Spanish statesmanship wise and
strong enough to do this? Can Span
ish pride be sufficiently humbled to en
able tho leaders of their government
to meet the situation In this spirit and
at'll maintain themselves In power?
Minister Woodford's first task is to
convince the Madrid government that
the freight train Is coming and to In
duce them to solve the problem of
their own volition. If Spain will her
self propose an adequate solution, it
will not bo necessnry for the United
States to become an actlvt factor in
Probably the president will wait a
reasonable time for Information as to
the manner in which Madrid receives
our suggestions. Refore making a
definite proposal he will wish to know
whether the Spanish are tractable or
Intractable. If they place themselves
In an attitude of pride and stubborn
ness there will be but one course for
the president to pursue. If, on the
other hand, they show a willingness to
meet the emergency In a proper spirit,
the president will want to learn what
it is they suggest before submitting
.definite proposals of his own.
Rut I am able to give important In
formation concerning the mode of set
tlement which tho president now has
In mind as an adequate tieatment of
the difficulty. The plan which to him
seems the most promising is at this
time, necessarily, more a principle than
a perfected scheme. When negotiations
are reached will be time enough for
details. Of these latter there will be
many, complicated, difficult to arrange,
requiring much tlmu and presenting
many opportunities for fiietlon and de
lay. Rut the end In view tho president
will keep constantly before him, nnd
toward It he w 111 steadily drive, though,
of course, with all proper patience and
diplomacy. It may take a year or more
to reach a final adjustment, but an ad
justment must be had.
COMPLETE HOUSE RULE.
The principle which controls
president in his approach to this most
difficult and hazardous International
problem is a very simple one, and one
which Is animated by the true spirit
of Americanism. It may bo expressed
1 Spain's nctlvo rule In Cuba Is a
failure and can never give the people
of that Island nor tholr near neighbor
peace, security and prosperity.
2. The people of Cuba huve a rlgh't
to government of their own choosing
3. It la the right and duty of tho
United States, as a great and Interest
ed power, friendly to both Spain and
Cuba, to ostlat In bringing about t
change which will be for tho best In
terest of all concerned.
The practical solution which th'a
president has in mind is emancipation
of Cuba from Spanish rule by estab
lishment of complete and perfect local
self-government, under the Joint pro
tection of Spain nnd tho United States.
In other words, Canadian autonomy for
Cuba,. Spain will hold titular sover
eignity, but practically her soveiclgn
Ity will be a. mere thread, thinner than
that which England holds over Can
ada. Cuba Is to govern herself, have
full control cf her own affairs, her Im
posts, revenues, expenditures, civil and
military establishments. The effeoo
of this Is obvious nominally Spain re
taining sovereignity; actually tho con
trolling und restraining power is that
of the United States.
As a necessary precedent to such a
government Spain muBt withdraw her
troops from tho island. There must
come ah end to that military rule
which the mother government has
maintained for four centuries. It goes
without saying that the moment Spain
evacuates Cuba the Island becomes vir
tually Independent. It Is believed the
moral pressure of the United States
would bo strong enough to maintain
order and adherence to the compact
without the employment of armed
forces. In other words, Spain's titular
sovereignty, empty nnd meaningless,
might be preserved for some time to
come. Rut it is npparcnt that In the
end even this would be thrown off. To
day tho people of Canada are virtually
as Independent as the people of the
United States. They rule themselves.
They make their own laws, raise their
own armies. If they were to declare in
favor of severing the tie which binds
them to England all the world knows
they would be permitted to go without
restraint. Great Rritain holds Canada
through the loyalty and mother coun
try love of the Canadians, not through
As long as Spain can hold Cuba In
the same way Cuba will owe nominal
allegiance to the crown. Rut It re
quires no prophetic power to forsee a
Cuba In which nil relics of loyalty are
destroyed, all loyalty to Spain abond
oned. The question then becomes sim
ply one of the ability of the Cuban
people to rule themselves. They may
or may not prove equal to the emer
gency. The guiding hand of the United
States may help them to pass safely
through the transition period in which
a now nntlon Is being securely estab
lished. Perhaps the probabilities are
that ere many years have passed the
United States would find it necessary
to take actual as well as moral control.
This is n contingency of which the
president Is even now not unmindful.
Indeed, there are members of the ad
ministration who believe Cuba will, In
less than four years, be a colony of the
Acquisition of Cuba Is not tho pur
pose of .our policy, but It may easily
become an Incident thereof. Minister
Woodford Is Instructed to state most
explicitly to the Spanish government
that the United tSates la not actuated
by a spirit of conquest or aggrandize
ment. Stress Is laid upon this in Gen
eral Woodford's Instructions, because
on the other side of the water diplo
matists have no other thoueht than
that tho United States Is trying to
grab Cuba, Land-hungry themselves,
eagerly reaching out for territory
wherever th'ey can lay hands upon it,
tho European powers cannot under
stand why the United States should not
step in and take Cuba, Any one of them
would do so were they In our ulace.
Our proposed annexation of Hawaii
will intensify the European conviction
that at last the United States has
Joined In the struggle for new terri
tory. But President McKlnley wishes
It distinctly understood this Is not a.
game of grab and greed. He wishes
the world to know that our motive Is
a higher one, that it has to do more
with the establishment of free govern
ment and the development of western
civilization than with any selfish plans
of this nation.
DOESN'T) WANT WAR.
The president's policy Is distinctly
one of peace. He does not wish to
make war, but rather to suppress war.
He does not plan to rob Spain of her
colony, but feels It his duty to Insist
that the colony shall not be destroyed
merely to satisfy Spain's pride. Under
present conditions Cuba is worthless
to Spain. If retention of nominal sov
ereignty is an effective sop to Spain's
much-vaunted pride, the president does
not object to It. Rut active control
must pass to tHe hands of the Cubans
themselves. President McKlnley be
lieves Sraln can be brought to a real
ization of the fact that as a subject
colony Cuba Is lost to the crown for
ever, and that this revolution can be
effected without war between Spain
nnrt the United States. Already there
Is talk that Spain will anticipate the
action of the United States by orrer
ing Cuba complete autonomy.
Others are not so hopeful of a peace
ful solution. Dupuy de Lome, as
Spain's bluffer In America, has so as
siduously cultivated the idea that any
intervention means war that many
observers here bellve the president's
pol!cyr if persisted In, will Inevitably
lead to hostilities. It may be said, how
ever, that the administration will go
ahead, no matter what attitude be as
sumed by Spain. If Spain will not
gracefully accept the Inevitable this
country Is willing to Incur any respon
sibilities that may arise.
Minister Woodford will be ablp to
show the Spanish ministry that In tho
United States public opinion demands
nctlon. The best evidence of that Is
found in the belligerency resolutions
which passed the senato by a large
majority, and which would go through
the house with a tremendous vote
were It not for the prevailing under
standing that tho executive Is prepar
ing to move.
General Woodford will be able, to
show that the president has restrained
congress thus far, but cannot restrain
It beyond next December unless Spain
meanwhllo co-operdtes In a settlement
of the problem. Ho will be able to
show them that this is a country in
which public opinions rules, and that In
this Cuban matter the president could
not continually restrain congress If he
would and would not if he could. Un
der tho circumstances, it would be easy
for Spanish statesmen to realize that
any aggreslsve policy framed by the
president will have the entfiuslastlc
support of congress and tins country.
On account of the absenco of tho
queen regent from Madrid (Hiring the
hot season, It is not likely Minister
Woodfprd can be presented at court
and begin his official work before tho
ill st of September. The most serious
rart of his task for some time to come
consists of Informal representation'
to the Spanish ministers. There Is no
itason why this cannot be taken up
shortly after his arrival In Madrid,
early in August. From that time for
ward there will be intense anxiety
throughout tho world as to the attitude
which Spain Is to assumo, for noon
It depends much history, and perhaps
the Issue of war of peace between the
United States and Spain.
