THE RCEANTON TRIBUNE MONDAY MORNIN"0. JANUARY 21, 1895.
VOORHEES AND HiAGEE OUT The Former Warm Political Friends Are Strainers Now. THE CAUSE OP THE RUPTURE Voorhcea Claims That Mngcc's Ally, Sell' Btor 11 Inn, Throw Uim Down In the Organization of the Present Uouso. Other Capital Notes. Concluded from Page I. f i mercantile ax which they now pay, and not thefbrokers' tax. The building and loan associations of the state will make a vigorous resist ance against the passage of the new revenue bill formulated by the state tax conference, which levies a. tax of one mill on the capital stock of such corporations. The local associations all over the state are organizing to op pose this feature of the proposed net and the Indications are that thvy will succeed. The bulk; lug and loan asso ciation league of Pennsylvania, of which Michael J. Blown, of Philadel phia, ia the leading spirit and secretary, has issued a circular to the members of the legislature urging them to vote against the bill unless this provision is utrlcken out. The league was success ful In securing an amendment to the present income tax when it was pend ing in congress exonerating building tind loam associations from the pay ment of tax. The state associations are also urging the passage of the Oobln banking bill, which regulates foreign foundling and loan associations. Colomlel A. K. McClure. of the Phila delphia, Times, will deliver an address In the hall of the house on Tuesday evening of next week on the life und death of the late Governor Curtln, Bill to Tux Aliens. Repeated efforts have been made in this etatei by representatives in the leg islature of the patriotic societies and labor organlzo'Llons to. secure the enact ment of a law taxing aliens, but the apposition to such measures has always been successful in preventing theLr pas eage. After a bitter light such a bill was put through the house at the last session and then defeated in the senate. These futile t'fforts have not discour aged the advocates of such legislation, bind a tax.orn foreigners has leen Intro duced In the present legislature by (Representative Kiddle, of Bedford, and will be considered by the general Judi ciary committee when that body re convenes. The bill provides that every male alien who has resided In the state three months shall pay a tax of $3 a year. At the expiration of five years, If he has not taken out naturalization papers, the tax Is to be Increased to $3. The ax is to be kept by the county treas urer separate and distinct from other county taxes. It is made the duty of the county treasurer and the county commlssoners to dstribute this fund once a year to the townships, boroughs and cities for the purpose of improving and maintaining the public highways, eueh division to be made according to the number of mile of public roads or streets embraced within thelrrespectlve limits. The proposed act requires street com missioners, supervisors or other of ficers having charge of roads to make a statement annually, before the first Jionday of May, the number of miles of road In their respective districts, and furnish the county treasurer with a copy from which to make a distribu tion of the tax. Employers of aliens who have resided In the state three months and who change their resi dence are required by the bill to re tain from their wages the amount of the tax, provided the alien has nut a receipt of 'having paid Such tax, and pay to the collector. Employers neglecting to collect the tax are mado Individually liable for Its payment. It Is also made obliga tory on the part of such employers to furnish a list of their alien workmen who have not paid' tax, or do not have a receipt, quarterly on the first Mon days of April, July, October und Janu ary with an affidavit as to Its correct ness. The assessors are required to place these lists upon the assessment list. Those who have examined the bill claim It Is superior to any of the kind ever presented to the legislature, and It is thought It will become a law with out serous objection from any source. Compulsory Education prospects. The house committee on education will take up consideration at Its meet ing on Tuesday, the two compulsory education bills. The general Impres sion Is that both will be brought out of committee In order that they may be printed for the Information erf the members and then re-committed. If this Is done It Is thought the bills will be consolidated and a measure agreed upon by the committee that will bo satisfactory to the friends of repre sentatives Farr,: of Lackawanna, and Beyfert, of Lancaster, the champions of compulsory education. Mr. Seyfert has perfect confidence In has scheme, which, he Bays, Is prefer nbla to that of the member from Lack awanna. "I am not posing as the man who is to be mada famous because he Rot a compulsory education bill 'through the legislature," said Mr, Sey fert, "but I am working for It on prin ciple. There was no prospect of gettlnqr such a law during the Pattlson admin istration, because the governor Is op posed to compulsory . education and would not sign such a measure. Things ore different now. Both bills will be brought out of committee. I hope the house will accept mine. If It passes, I am sure Governor Hastings will op prove H." Mr. Farr's bill Is almost identical Nursing Mothers Should Take n5 . S'ltfNATUR WPSVallrr ii Trf re onjieclutrtfcl with that Introduced by him In the last two sessions, and vetoed by ex-Governor Pattlson. That drafted by Mr. Seyfert provides that parents or guard ians must send children between the ages of eight and fifteen years to school at least sixteen consecutive weeks In each school year, provided that the act does not apply to any child that has been or is being educated otherwise in the common school Kngllsh branches." i An Important feature of this bill not in Mr. Farr's Is the clause, "The super intendent of public Instruction may withhold one-4ialf of all public school moneys from any city or district, which In his Judgment wilfully omits and re fuses to enforce the provisions of this net. But whenever the provis ions of ithls act have been complied with, all moneys so held shall be paid over by said superintendent to such city or district." Mr. Farr's bill has been endorsed by the patriotic societies, Knights of Labor and other labor organizations, Catholic priests and leading members of the Reformed and German Luth erans, and Is decidedly the more popu lar of the two.

The stock of coal on (hand at tide water shipping points Dec. 31, 1894, was 780,913 tons; on Nov. 30, 1894, 874,906 tons; decrease, 83,993 tons. The upper plate mill and the 63-Inch mill of the Pottstown, (Pa.), Iron com pany have rosumed operations, after an Idleness of over three months. Orders for cars for the railroads of the country are now being very general ly pKaced, while tjlio work In sight makes the outlook for plenty of work In the oar shops of the land very bright. The Bethlehem Iron company, of South liuthleihem, has decided on 'Im portant enlargements to (its plant. It will erect four 40-ton basic open-hearth furnaces o.nd nine sonklng-plt furnaces. A largo universal mill Is to be put up for rthem by Mackintosh, Hemphill & Co., of Pittsburg. Hlnkle rurnaoe.of the Ashland, (Wis.). Iron and Steel company, the largest charcoal furnace In the world, had the biggest month's output In Its history during December. It produced 3,856 gross tons, In .spite of the fact 'that one day's product wss lost owing to an acci dent to the 'hoist. The Wheeler-Sterling Steel company, of Pittsburg, has received an order from the United States government for 13 lnch projectiles, which will require six months steady running of the plant. The company will soon begin to erect a mill to cost $150,000, to furnish the steel used in the projectiles. A Hump of coal was recently exhibited In Chicago from the mines at Rosyln, in the State of Washington. It was, wo are told, 24 'feet in length, 5 feet 8 Inches iln Width, 4 feet 8llnches in thick ness, and weighing 41,000 pounds. This Is 19,000 pounds .more than the ltocking Valley lump and 15,000 more than the grtlait block sent over to the World's falir from this country. The blast furnace owners of the coun try evidently expect 1893 to be a much better business year than wa3 its im mediate predecessor. Many furnaces that tiavie not made a Iton of pig .Iron for over a year are preparing to resume operations, This is particularly true of the Soutlh, in some sections of which pig Iron can now be made cheaper than in any other part of our country. The railroads, too, are at last beginning to place orders for rolling stock, several large contracts for cars, particularly freight cars, having been closed since the linst of tlie year. January starts off in a very encouraging manner, the con trast with January, 1S94, being marked. The Bulletin of the Iron and Steel association prints Jamies M. Swiank's statistics of the Iron trade for 1894. The tci'.al production of pig iron was 6,657,3S8 tons, as compared with 7,124,502 tons In 1893, and 9,157,000 tons In 1892. The pro duction In 1892 was 22 per cent, greater thamln 1894. Tlhe production, according to fuel used, was as fallows: Anthracite, 914,742 tons; cmaireoal, 222,422 tons, and bituminous, 5,502,224 tons. This Is a de crease in anfliraclite 'Iron of 432,787 tons, a decrease In charcoal iron of 164,367 tons, while the amount of bituminous Iron 'Increased 130,240 tons. In 1S00 the amount of anthracite Iron produced was nearly 2,500,000 net tons. The tendency for a number of years has been to a large inci'dase in the production of biltu minous Iron. The staite of Pennsylvania still produces more than half the entire output of pl dron. The stocks of Iron on ihand at the close of the year were decreased 64,380 tons as compared with a yeur ago, so that the indicated con sumption of pig Iron In ithls country in 1894 was about 6,693,000 tons. The 'bureau of ainjthraolte coal statis tics has completed 4ts compilation of the production of coal in 1894. The total output was 41,391,199 tons, as agalnat 43.089,536 tons the prweding yeair, 41,893,320 tons In 1S92 'and 40,448, 336 tons In 1891, Iflva latter being the first year In which the forty million ton mark was passed. The December out put materially exceeded the amount Ugrc-ied upon, as w.Ml be seen by the fol lowing statement: Dee, Dee. Region. 1MU. 1S93. Difference.

New York, Jan. 19. There was very lit tle to the stock market toduy outside of Chicago Gas and Union Pacific. The ten dency was downward. Chleugo Gas start ed olt strong, rising to 75, but subsequent ly there was a recession to 73. 1'iilon Pacific was heavy and fell from 11 to !,, the lowest since August last. The gelling was due to a belief that tho assessment on tho stock would be at least 30 and perhaps 35 per cent. The railway list anil Indus trials anywhere from U to 1 per cent. Delaware and Hudson, General Electric, Louisville and Nashville, Manhattan, Sugar and Jersey Central scored the greatest losses. Speculation cloned barely steady. Net changes show declines of 'i to 1 per cent. Cnlon Pacific lost 1. Total sales were 55,000 shares. The range of today's prices for the ac tive stocks of the New York stock mar ket are given below.
