After the passage of a number of
bills on r.econd reading, the senate ad
journed until tomorrow.
The house started In this morning to
slaughter everything In sight. Tho bi
cycle bill was taken up first and killed
by GP. yeas to 70 nays. The measure
levied a tax of one dollar a year on
pleasure carriages, tricycles and bi
cycles riot equipped with pneumatic
tfres and three dollars on traction en
gines. The amended direct inheritance tax

operating engines and steam boilers
In cities of the first class was post

of minor Importance were deTeated.
The bills to repeal the road law In

authorizing cities to appropriate pri
vate properties for park purposes
passed finally. Pending a discussion on
the senate bill to validate conveyances

been defectively acknowledged, the
house adjourned at 12:40 until 3 o'clock
Senate bills on third reading was the
order at the afternoon session. The
members continued to Slaughter bills
to even up matters with the senate for
refusing to take action on the Bliss
beer bills. There Is a strong senti
ment In the house against the proposi
tion to extend the session until the mid
dle of July. Unless the senate passes
the beer bills there Is talk of the house
standing by the resolution to quit July
1. The most Important bills were post
poned by their friends to prevent their
These bills passed finally: Authoriz
ing the transfer of wholesale or retail
liquor licenses from one person to an
other and from one place to another;
relating to the number of overseers of
the poor to sign certain petitions and
regulating and establishing the fees to

A long debate was precipitated by
Mr. Harris, of Clearfield, In moving to
reconsider the vote by which the reso
lution to extend the time within which
the committee to Investigate the oleo
scandal in Westery Pennsylvania In
connection with the pure food buieau
shall report. Mr. McElhenny, of Alleg
heny, started the debate with a strong
speech In favor of the resolution and
was followed by Mr. Hosack, of Alleg
heny, chairman of the committee.
SEVEN WXTNF.SSES MISSED.
Mr. Hosack complained that seven of
the most important wltneses have lied
the ptate and are staying nway until
after tho committee has made its re
port. He promised that If the Investi
gation was continued these witnesses
would return to the state and appear
before the committee and give testi
mony. Mr. Baldwin, of Delaware,
spoke against the resolution and claim
ed the purpose of the Investigation was
to create public sentiment In favor of
the sale of oleomargarine.
Messrs. Gould, of Erie, and Sexton, of
Montgomery, warmly advocated the
motion to extend the time of the com
mittee. Mr. Harris sought to shut off debate
by moving the previous question, but
the motion fell for the lack of the prop
er number of "seconders." Mr. Hosack
reviewed tho evidence adduced by tho
committee and made another appeal for
an extension of time, Mr. Gllmore, of
Philadelphia, closed the debate with a
speech In favor of tho motion.
A motion to Indefinitely postpone the
motion was defeated by 70 yeas to SO
nays. SeVeral members wanted to talk
on the original motion and Mr. Sterr, of
Philadelphia, cut olt debate by moving
the previous question, which was
The main question was then put and
4he motion to extend the time of tho
committee was defeated by 77 yeas to
83 nays, after which tho house adjourn

CAMPBELL BILL IB SIGNED.
Governor Hastings today signed the
Campbell bill, Imposing a tax of 3 cents
n, day on all employed unnaturalized
foreigners. Tho tax Is to be deduct
ed from the wages of this class begin
ning July lMiext. Tho bill will put
about 11,000,000 into the treasuries of
tho various counties of the state. One
half goes to the school fund on the
basis of the number of schools, and
tho balance for the general expenses of
the counties. This proposition was
first. Introduced In the hluse by Mr.
Campbell, of Fayette, in 1889, and ho
has since been working toxnuvo it be
come a law.
Tho aovernor returned to tho house
tonight without his npproval a bill
making It lawful to erect and maintain
fences construoted in whole or In part
of wire along public roads and be
tween adjoining lands. Ills objections
to the mcasuro Is that It Is Indefinite
In Its description of tho character of
the fence and Inadequate In all Its pro
visions. The executive also states that
the bill would likely lead to great con
fusion In tho fenco laws and catfse
much expensive litigation.
Tho houso was thrown into a stato of
.great excitement tonight by Mr. Con
nell, of Lackawanna, moving to dis
charge tho ways nnd means commit
tee from further consideration of tho
Bliss horizontal tax bill. The speak
er ruled the motion out of order, where
upon Mr. Conncll moved to suspend the
rules. Mr. Scott, of Philadelphia, called
for a division of the question nnd the
motion to suspend waB defeated by 39
yeas to 106 nays.
Tho committee will meet tomorrow
to take action on the bill. There Is a
strong sentiment In the house In favor
of the measure, but the opposition
have succeeded In tying It up in com
mittee. Mr. Connell will renew his at
tempt to bring out the bill when reso
lutions are in order If the commltteo
does not act upon tho proposition in
The report of the conference com
mittee on the Hamilton road bill was
presented by Mr. Phillips, of Chester.
The committee has restored tho amend
ment put In by the house providing for
an appropriation of $1,000,000 to carry
tho proposed law Into effect. Mr. Plo
lett filed a minority report, which car
ried an appropriation of $1,000,000 a
year to carry out its provisions. This
report was ruled out of order.

ril 9, 1872. to Incorporate the borough of

gages; making It a misdemeanor to ob
tain positions of trust or solicit alms by

Many of tho current reports of Euro
pean consuls, recently received at the
state department, are of especial Inter
est to both bicycle riders and manu
facturers In the country, ns showing
several phases of the prevailing cyclo
crazo In sections of the old world.
George Sawter, United States consul at
Glauchau, Germany, In his annual re
port makes the following comments
upon bicycling in Gormany, which will
provo valuable to American cyclists
who may contemplate a cycling tour of
"Complaints are very frequently
made by traveling American blcyclo
riders In Germany of obstacles and de
lays to their travel caused by the very
vigorously enforced laws governing tho
use of bicyclists on tho public roads
In this country. For the benefit of these
American beyele tourists a few of the.
more strictly enforced rules which cyc
lers are called upon to observe
throughout ithe German empire nie
"Cycling on public streets and roads
Is subject In this country, and partic
ularly In Saxony, to minute and most
carefully enforced police regulations
which. Indeed, In many places prohibit
entirely the use of brakeless machines.
The roads are. as a rule, with but few
exceptions, perfect, and wheeling la
smooth and easy, but on account of the
rainy weather which prevails most of
the year, wheel guards for wet days are
LAMPS, BELLS AND BRAKES.
"Every machine must huve an open
plate or shield, affixed to the rod of the
brake or handle bar, and be provided
with a spring lid, on which 4s engraved,
In clear lettering, the name, profession
or rank, and residence of the rider of
the bicycle. In lieu of this, the card of
the rider, with address, &c, might be
attached to the handle bar, which
would be In compliance with the law,
and would temporarily answer every
requirement in this way. The alarm
bell is, of course, demanded every
where. The law requires that the night
lamp be rather highly placed on the
wheel, and be kept lighted by the rider
when traveling from within half an
hour after sunset to half an hour be
fore sunrise; furthermore, the light
must shine through uncolored glass
before the rider.
"Each bicycle must be provided with
an easily-managed brake, operating
quickly and powerfully. Cycling on
roads exclusively Intended for pedes
tralns or on elevated footpaths of high
ways Is strictly prohibited. Two bicy
clers may ride side by side, when It can
be done without blocking the thorough
fare or annoyance to other riders of ve
hicles; otherwise, single file Is the rule.
"More than two machines are not al
lowed to occupy the road side by side
with other bicycles. When ap
proaching passages of tho road where
It Is not possible to see a clear distance,
or when going down a steep descent,
the cycler Is obliged to give frequent
and measured distance signals 'with
his bell, as a matter of strlot precaution
In avodlng collision and to excite tho
attention of roaders In the vicinity.
A moderate speed of riding must be
maintained at all times. Cycling at
an extraordinary speed, or 'scorching,'
Is forbidden on the highways every
where In Germany.
"At very steep down grades of the
roads the cycler must dismount and
guide his wheel until the descent Is
passed, before remounting. Cyclers
are also required to dismount at any
time If called upon by police officials
to do so and are obliged to give such
official any Information he may deem
necessary to demand. For dlsregaid of
any of the above rules and regulations
a fine not to exceed 60 marks ($14.28)
may be imposed, or Imprisonment In
jail for not moro than two weeks, or
both may be Intllcted for each offense."
THOSE ENGLISH WHEELS.
The bicycle industry In England Is
also treated by George F. Parker,
United States consul at Birmingham
England, who, after quoting statistics
regarding the total disappearance of
the demand which formerly existed In
this country for wheels of British
make, proves that affairs have com
pletely veered around and that tho best
wheels sold In England are now those
of American make. The report then
"Tho trade with the United States In
cycle materials continues to decline.
No complete bicycles havp been sent
to the United States from this district
since my last report. On the other hand
a good many machines of American
manufacture have been sold even In
this district. It Is not safe to predict
how long this demand will continue,
but as trade conditions In general have
improved during the past year It 8
likely that a considerable number of
machines of good quality may be sold
If offered at prices slightly lower than
those ruling here for the same Kind.
Nominally, retail prices have not ad
vanced; In reality, they have, owing
to the reduction of trade discounts.
"If the demand for cyclists continues
over the world the factories will prob
ably turn out 1,000,000 machines during
the next year. The old-established fac
tories have been engaged to the full
limit of their capacity, greatly en
larged though It has been from tlm to
dme. It Is estimated that from five to
eight thousand operatives have been
