Harrisbubo, April 15. Governor PaU
tison transmuted to the Legislature to-day
Dapers relative to the ditect tax due the
State under the recent act of Congress.
Thev consist of a copy of the law, cor
respondence between Secretary Harrity and
Secretary Foster, and the report of B. M.
Xead, State Financial Agent at "Washing
ton. Under date of March 18, Mr. Harrity
wrote Mr. Blaine inquiring whether it
wonld be necessary for the Legislature to
take any steps toward obtaining the money
due Pennsylvania under the direct tax bill
"prior to the receipt of official notification
and information through your department
or otherwise of the passage of said act."
The inquiry was evidently made to the
wrong department, for on April 3 Secretary
Foster replied to the letter sent to Secretary
Blaine, informing Mr. Harrity that no
money can be paid "until the Legislature
shall have accepted, by resolution, the sum
appropriated and the trnsts imposed by the
act, in full satisfaction of all claims against
the United States on account ef the levy
and collection of said tax, and shall author
ize the Governor to receive said money for
the use and purposes described in the act."
Goes Into the State Treasury.
The amount due the Slate was given as
?1,G54,71L .Financial Agent Nead's report
details the manner in which the direct tax
was levied, and shows that, as the State was
at that time a creditor of the United States
Government in the sum of over $3,000,000
advanced for the equipment of troops, etc,
the amount due from Pennsylvania was
tiuiply deducted Irom the sum due to her by
the National Government, and, as no levy
for tins tax was made unon individual citizens,
no trust is therefore created for the return of
the tax to those persons lrom whom it was col
lected, or their legal representatives. Con
seouenlly.tbe none) refunded rocs to the State
Treasury, whence it was originally paid out.
bo fat as tbe paying of comiuiasiuns for the
collection of the direct tax due the State under
this bill, as discussed In a Washington letter in
lo-daj's Dispatch is concerned, section 3 of
the direct, tax lull would seem to fettle the
matter conclusively. It reads: Provided
further, that no part of the money hereby ap
propriated shnll be paid out by the Governur of
any State or Terrl or. or any other person, to
any attorney or scent under any contract for
seniors now existing or heretofore made be
tween the repre-cntative of any State or Terri
tory and any attomev or agent."
Judge Lewis S. Wells us State Financial
Asrent.it Wasliingtnn for some. J cars prior to
18S3. vihen Governor Pattison appointed 15. M.
Nead, ot HarnsDurc. Sir. Nead served until
lb7, w Sen Governor Beaver reappointed Judso
Wells. Unon the statement of a member of
Governor Heaver's Cabinet, it may be said that
in the authority given to Judge Wells tn aci as
State agent. Governor Beater expressly stipu
lated that he should have no right of cotupen--s.itlon
fur money tecovered on the claim for
A Xeir Appointment Already.
Under these circumstances it is hard to see
how J udge Wells could expect to receive 170,
000 or any compensation at all for the collec
tion ot the money now coming to the State un
der this bill. Tbe appointment of a successor
to J ndge Wells is not under consideration, as it
has been made already. Governur Pattison, a
few days after his inauguration, reappointed
Mr. Nead to succeed JuOge Wells, and he is
now serving in that capacitj.
The compensation is a matter left by law to
the Auditor General and State Treasurer.
They exit, and the Governur has nothing to
do with it. All contracts heretofure made
with tbe State agents have Exed a graduated
commission, beginning at 20 per cent for tbe
nist amount collected and descending until in
soiup cases nut 1 per cent has beeu paid. This
would prevent exorbitant fees, even if large

Mr. Nead said to-dar that neither be nor

TAGGAHT TAX BILL.
Leonard Khoncs Argument In Favor of
the Tending Measure.
tFKOH A STAFF CORUElPONDIJST.
Habuisbuiig, April 15. The Senate Finance
Committee took up the Taggart tax bill this
afternoon. Ihe hearing was held in tbe Senate
chamber, lion. Leonard Rhone, Master of the
State Grange, inade the first argument, present
ing statistics to show tbe inequalities in taxa
tion and tbe undue burdens imposed upon real
estate. He argued that tbe proposed law was
just and equitable, and would largely remedy
tbe evils under which tbe agricultural interest
now labors. .Mr. Taggart maintained that tbe
measure had been grievously misrepresented,
and was in no respect the inquisitorial bill its
enemies said it was. It did nut press unjustly
upun tLe manufacturing interests. It only
asked them to bear the same burdens the
farming interests bad to bear. He bad always
been their friend, and was willing even to
build around the manufacturing interests the
"Chinese wall" of protection, but he was not
willing to exempt them from their share of
IL H. Thomas, Secretary of the State Grange,
warned the Republican Senators of the troubles
likely to ensue, sbunld the party in power fail
to afford tbe farming interests just relief. If
the old parlies would not heed tnolr appeals for
justice, tbey would have to look clsewbeic. Ko
action was taken by tbe committee. The Phila
delphia Board of 'lrade will seud a delegation
against it next Tuesday.
, Mr. Taggart said to-night that there was a
reaction fur the bill all over tbe State. Tho
opposition had been overdone. Senator Flinn
had told him that from what he bad read be
bad supposed tbe bill a very bad one, but he
ludrcad it overjind cuuld see little if anj tbiug
wrong with it. Mr. Taggart said tbe friends of
the bill were willing to have it amended to
meet tbe general demand. They would exempt
the unsold products of manufacturers and also
unsold agricultural products. They weru also
willing to increase tbe amount of exemption
from J3U0 to such snm as should seem just. One
tbiug, hunever, they would object to aud that
was delay in reporting the bill. It it was to be
defeated, tbey wanted it done as soon as pos
sible. He would oppose fixing any time for
adjournment until tue bill nad been disposed

AN EXCITING FIGHT
WAGED OVER THE BROOKS WHOLESALE
An Amendment to Shut Out the Small Bot
tier In Various Flaces The House Totes
in Tavor of the Bill It TV111 Probably
IFHOM A STAFF COBBESrOKDEXT.1
HaBkisburg, April 15. Any question
relative to the sale of intoxicating liquors
can be relied upou to raise a breeze in either
"house. It was so to-day when Mr. Brooks'
wholesale license bill came up in the House
on second reading. Mr. McNeelis moved to
amend by fixing bottlers' licenses at 5300 in
all cities, instead of 300 in cities of the
first, second and third classes, and $300 in
all others, arguing that the original bill
would drive small bottlers out of the busi
ness. Mr. Brooks said the $500 fee was ap
proved by a delegation from the Bottlers
Association of Philadelphia, on the ground
that it would shut out the worst class of
bottlers. Under the decision of the Supreme
Court they could not be denied a license in
the counties of Philadelphia and Alle
gheny, but the increased fee would drive
Mr. Pattison, of Philadelphia.charged that
the bill was a "squeezer," intended solely to
drive the poorer bottlers of Philadelphia oat
ot the business. Tho amendmentjwas carrh d b
a vote of 69 to 63. Mr. McNeelis then rooveu to
strike nut the provision exempting brewers and
distillers bottling tfceir own prsducu from
taking out a bottlers license, wbicn was also
agreed to. Mr. Flad then moved to strike out
the provision allowing wholesalers to deliver
their goods by their own conveyance, "in any
part of the county where tue ucente is grameuv
and insert, "in any part of the Commonweath."
Upon this there was a warm discussion. Mr.
Talbotsaidthe effect of the amendment would
be demoralizing iu the extreme. Pass this
amendment and you would simply put saloons
on wheels and send them all over tbe State.
The yeas and nays were called and the amend
ment defeated by a tie vote SI to SL
Mr. Fow had an amendment inserted requir
ing delivery wagons to bear the name ot the
dealer and tbe number of his license in letters
not less than four niches long. He said the ob
ject of this amendment was to prevebt the de
livery of liquor to speak-oasics."
Mr. Walton made a very earnest appeal to
the members to go at the question calmly and
practically. Mr. Walton's appeal seemed to
recall members to their senses, and thereafter
but few amendments were made, one being that
presented by Mr. Cotton, of Allegheny, per
mitting any one member of a firm of distillers
to take out a wholesale license in the county
where tho distillery is located, and another
presented by Mr. Morrison, of Philadelphia, re
quiring that all remonstrauces against tho
grautii.g of licenses be sworn to in the same
manner as petition therefor, and that all per
sons wilfully making false statements therein
be made liable to prosecution for perjury.
On motion of Mr. Elwood, of Westmoreland,
a provision was added repealing all special laws
inconsistent with the new law. This is to reoeal
the Westmoreland wholesale act, which forbids
wholesalers selling in quantities less than five
gallons. The bill passed second reading, after
one of tbe hottest fights of the session. It
looked at first as though it wonld never pass
finally, but since tbe amendments have been
made its prospects for becoming a law are

President O'Noll was resting "on his oars"
yesterday and enjoying tba visions of tho pen
nant of 1801.
"There is nothing new in the King matter,"
he said. "King will bo hcre'probably to-morrow.
No. he has not signed a Pittsburg con
tract yet, nor have 1 had a talk with him,"
Mr. O'Neil went ou to say tbat the games at
Jacksonville and St. Augustine were only exer
cise games. He said: "Anybody who thinks
that tbe performance of our team in their littlo
Florida exercise is a measure ef their strength
will be very badly fooled. Just waif uu til tho
real argument start'. .Of courso Cleveland
has a good team, but I think time will tell that
they are behind Pittsburg. This Is my opinion,
and let facts and work prove it. With King I
have all the players 1 want."
A Ltttlo Too Steep.
Chicago, April 15. The directors of tjhe
California Club do not think a contest between
George Dixon, bantam champion of America
and England, and Abe Willis, of Australia, is
worth 5,000. which amount Dlxm demands in
the shape of a purse, with $500 expenses,
and they inferentially informed Mr. Dixon
that unless he Is willing to drop off a notch or
two he may consider negotiations irrevocably
off. If the colored hoy holds off too long it i3
said Willis will return to Australia and then
the prospects of an international bantam con
test will vanish.

HAEEIS' SAD STORY.
He Alleges That Jim Hall Skipped With
the Gate Receipts.
SAN Fbancisco, April 15. John Harris, the
Ausiralian manager who came over with the
Australian pugilists. Hall, Mabor and Willis, is
In hard luck. He returned to town yestorday
and announced tbat Hall had eloped with tbe
gate receipts of the exhibition at SaltLake and
signed articles with wily Muldoon. When Mul
doon was here ho saw, what a splendid boxer.
Hall was, and realized how the newly arrived
Australian could he turned to profitable ac
count as tbe challenger of Fitzsimmons. Some
friends told Harris tbat Muldoon was likely to
capture his star, but tbe Australian manager
refused to believe such a thing possible. The
first trip to the North proved a losing venture
for Harris, who knew nothing of this country,
and he returned, and leaving Mabor and, Willis
here, started East with Hall to get a match
Hall evidently concluded bis Interests would
be better in Muldoon's hands, and at the first
favorable opportunity broke off all business
relations with his countryman and went East
with the champion wrestler, who, with Kilrain
and Hall In his string, will be in luck for this
season. Muldoon, so it is said, firmly believes
Hall can whip Fitzsimmons, as well a3 Ashton.
A KIND FABEWELL,
The Local Amateurs Bid Goodby to Dau
son and Ilacpherson.
Probably one of .the best gatherings of ama
teur athletes, together with the friends and
patrons ot amateur sports, tbat has ever been
held in Pittsburg was that of last evening held
at the Hotel Schlosser. It was a banquet given
as a token of esteem to Messrs. E. B. Damon
and Alexander Macpherson, who are both
leaving Pittsburg to-day. Both gentlemen are
rr embers of tbe Allegheny Athletic Associa
tion. Mr. Datison, in fact, has been tbe Secre
tary of that organization since its beginning.
Last evening mcmDers of tbe club and other
admirers of out-door sports were present at the
banquet to shake a "farewell" band with
Meters. Dauson and Macpherson. Tbe repast
was one of tbe best and after tbe cloth bad
been removed, Mr. Phil Lloyd, tbe Chairman,
in a very merited and pointed speech showed
bow Pittsburg would bo the loser by the de
parture of .Messrs. Dauson and Macpherson.
Ho explained how Mr. Macpherson had been
ono of the most prominent cricket plavers and
one of tbe most enthusiastic workers In ama
teur sport that Pittsburg had ever possessed.
Mr. Lloyd's remarks were feelingly and well
There were several toast proposed, Notable
was one by the sporting editor of The Dis
patch to Mr. P. Preston as one of the pioneers
of lawn tennis in Western Pennsylvania. Mr.
Preston is a member of the Lawn Tennis Com
mittee of the three A's. and is one of tbe most
enthusiastic admirers of tbat branch of sport.
He claimed tbat he knows nothing about it,
and amid cheers it was pointed out tbat bs
was tbe very man to be on the committee. Mr.
Preston Is a promising athlete and
an acknowledged humorist. Vcrv en
tertaining speeches were, made by Messrs.
Ed Brainard. E. W. Patrick, the Vice Chair
man; C. Z. Wheeler, a guest; C. V. Childs, who
is also leaving for Chicago; B. C. Bakewell, Ed
McKnigbt and others. Telegrams of regret
were read from John Moorehead, President of
tbe association, and other prominent people.
Tbe banquet was one ot the must euthusiastlo
ever held in Pittsburg.
THE WHIST PLAxEH8.
They Have a Very Interesting Time on Im
portant Questions In Milwaukee.
MLOTAUKEE, Wis., April 15. The represen
tation in the American Whist Congress was in
creased to-day by the arrival of many additional
delegates. It was decided that no club should
be allowed voting representation hereafter un
less represented by oeof its own members. A
letter from "N". B. Trist, the New Orleans au
thority, recommended Cavendish as the best
authority in getting up an American text work
for whist. There was a lively discussion as to
tbe possibility of ascertaining tbe comparative
strength of individual players, P. F. Foster, of
New York, being almost alone in supporting
the affirmative side of the question, while
others thought the variations in whist made
each player so dependent on his partner that it
Tbe Individual contest for tho Streeter prize
took place this afternoon. There were 48
hands, and It resulted in a tie between Pries

Club, Pennsylvania, each of whom lost ouly
10 tricks out of 576 hands. Tbe tie will have to
be played off. At 8 o'clock to-night a match

Will Start Ethel.
Chicago, April 15. At a late hour, as al
leged, it was decided by the owners of Rose
land not to start their colt in tho Derby, and
about the same time a rumor that Ed Qojtigan
might start Ethel became current. Mr.Torrl
gan says tba'. Ethel's starting depends entirely
on her condition in the morning, She is in very
fine trim, and it is believed that if she starts
she will be a.formidablegcandidate lu her work.
This morning she ran a mile in 1:45 very
handily, a much faster trial than Mr. Corrigan
intended to give her. If she shows no signs of
soreness from this she will be likely to come to

rST-ECIAL TELIOKAM TO TUB DISFATCR.l
Chicago, April 15. As was announced
in -the columns of The Dispatch a few
days ago, an attempt is now being made
to put new life into the window glass trust,
which was incorporated a few months ago
under the name of the American Window
Glass Company,with a capital stock of 5400,
000, subscribed by the various factories of
Pittsbuejand the West.
This morning a delegation of Pittsburgers,
made up of J. A. Chambers, William
Loeffler, C. Smith, D. O. Cunningham and
C. Johnson, registered at the Auditorium,
where they were joined later in the day by
T. F. Hart, of Jlunice, Ind., who is Vice
President of the American Window Glass
Company; E. Baker and John Baker, of
i'indlay O.; J. Baker, of Barnesville, O.,
and several others, beside the local officials
of the United Glass Company, of Chictro,
which also is a stockholder in the American
Window Glass Company. A meeting was held,
with closed doors, ot course, and about 6
o'clock an adjournment was taken until to
From what was said by several of tbe gentle
men named, it was gathered tbat the cause of
the meeting Is the badly demoralized condition
of tbe window glass market. Tbe American
Window Glass Company made a heroic at
tempt last fall to buy up tbe entire product of
all the Pittsburg and tbe Western factories
and sell them through a board of trustees at
an agreed upon card rate. ' It failed because a
few manufacturers refused to sell their product
to It, and because it had no money worth speak
ing of in its treasury and could not make the
necessary purchases on long time credits, and
because certain manufacturers, who promised
to support it, neglected and refused to come to
time at a critical moment.
Since that time prices have fallen 20 and 23
per cent, and certain manufacturers, tbat run
on small capital, fell into their old habit of
selling their entire product to Chicago brokers
at tbe cost of manufacture, in order to realize
cost. With an increased demand for glass and
a slight tendency toward higher prices, tbe
gentlemen now in session hope to put the trust
on its feet again, or to devise some scheme by
which prices of window glass may be raised
and kept up to a point which shall be satisfac
tory to the makers.
At to-day's meeting the United GlaSS' Com
pany took the ground that this could he done
only by tbe formation of a corporation and the
transfer to it absolutely of all competing fac
tories, so tbat tbe Western market would be
uependent for its supply on a single concern,
which could fix the price to suit itself ; but thus
far tbey have not been able to bring the rest up
to the sticking point. '
EEV. JOHN A. BTJEHETI SUSPEKDED.
Thp Pittsburg Presbytery Revokes Bis
License to Preach.
The Pittsburg Presbytery of the Reformed
Presbyterian Church, meeting at Beaver, yes
terday revoked tbe license of Rev. John A.
Burnett, who was suspended last December for
refusing to answer certain questions at the
last meeting of the Presbytery, and also for
expressing bis sympathy with and. adherence
'to the famous East End platform, wherein
members and ministers of the Reformed Pres
byterian Church aro allowed the right of suf
frage. He was given an opportunity to answer
the questions put to him at the former meet
ing and also to retract certain statements he
had made. He refused point blank to do
either, and submitted the case without offering
or denying anything.
A motion was made to refuse Mr. Burnett a
license and tbat be be suspended from the Re
formed Presbyterian Church. Considerable
discussion ensued upon tbe motion. A minis
ter thought the better plan would bs to let the
Synod settle it. This did not suit tbe delegates
and the motion was carried by a fair majority.
Mr. Burnett, in a few vigorous word3,deIended
his position, and gave notice that he would
make an appeal to the Synod at the next meet
