beodcd tic Straight-out
Democratic moTcmcnt, last Tar, bas
joined tbe Republicans.
Bradford county, in thi9 State,
voted on tbc "local option law" on
the 17th of last month. Tbc result
was a majority of over two thousand
against license.
It is asserted that, although Gov
ernor Geary had pardoned from the
Penitentiaries sixty-nine convicts,
during the last year of bis term, up
to the 8th of January, yet that dur
ingtbe remaining thirteen days he
occupied the Gnberatorial chair, be
contrived to add thirty-one more par
dons to the list
They are at the old game in Wash

vice reform it is proposed to increase
the pay of tbe beads of all the depart

The Iowa City Republican says it
is estimated that in tbe State fifty
thousand bushels of corn a day is used
asfuel, and will continue to be used at
this rate for the next two months.
Think of it three million bushels of
corn to be used up as fuel in the next
sixty days, besides tbe several mill
ions of bushels already disposed of in
the same way.
A proposition will soon come be-
a
fore the Legislature of this State fa
voring the division of Tioga county.
Five thousand petitioners have made
the request, and, if a majority of the
voters of tbe couuty are in favor of the
division, it will probably take place.
The county was taken from Lycom
ing county in 1864, and contained at
that time three hundred inhabitants.
It now holds thirty-five thousand
souls.
The trial of "Boss' Tweed for rob
bing tbe city treasury of New York,
has just ended by the discharge of
the jury, because unable to agree. In
tbe face of tbe direct proof, obtained
through the testimony of one of his
confederates, it is said tbe jury stood
one for conviction, eleven for acquit
tal. Can there be any doubt that tbe
jury system of New York needs re
vision, or abolition?
The Constitutional Convention is
trmntr to reform corruption in our
o o -
Legislature, by making tbe election
of members,and the session of tbc body
biennial We don't see exactly where
the reform is to come in, unless it be
on the principle that a member elect
ed for two years will not have cheek
sufficient to ask for another term, and
that therefore, he will not have to
"grab" enough to procure his-re-elec-
tion.
The sad story of the detection and
exposure of Senator Fomeroy, in an
attempt to bribe the Kansas Legisla
ture into re-electing him to tbe Sen
ate which is telegraphed over the
country seems to us hardly proba
ble, for divers reasons which we
have not the space nor the inclina
tion to enumrrate. bhould it turn
out to be a conspiracy of his enemies
to defeat him we 6hall not be surpris
ed. Meanwhile we await tbe devel
opment of the trial to take place be
fore coming to a conclusion.
A bill has been reported in our
Legislature to appropriate one million
of dollars towards the Centennial cel
ebration in 187G. Considering tbe
condition of our state finances, this is
a very large sum to bestow upon this
object. That this exposition will be
of large benefit to tbe country, and
to portions of the State, is undoubt
ed, while to other sections its benefits
are not as vet Terceptible. It will
require plausible, if not sound reason
ing, to reconcile toe average tax-pay
er's mind to so large an appropriation.
The franking privilege has been
abolished. On Monday of last week
the House passed the Senate bill, and
the President has since signed it,
making it a law, going into effect, we
believe, on the first day of July next.
Good-bye to Patent Office Reports
and garden seeds for the ladies. We
shall receive the'm no more forever,
now that M. C.'s must pay their own
po8tage.yL8 there will no longer be
a call for tbe thousands of books and
documents heretofore printed for free
circulation, let some reformer move
for the abolition of the national printing-office,
and the furnishing of tbe
necessary blanks, 4ca by the lowest
bidder, and another great leak in the
treasury will be stopped.
Under the cry that it would be an
encroachment on State rights, our
Senate' under tbe lead of Mr. Ritan
has passed resolution instructing
our delegation in Congress to vote
against the Postal Telegraph scheme.
So far as we hare seen them,
tbe reasons of the Senator
are more speculative than real.
If the government has the right to
carry messages by mail, why not by
telegraph 1 The countrp is just now
congratulating itself apon tbe pros
pect of yet cheayer postage, by rea
son of the abolition of tbe franking
privilege, when in steps this anti-pro-gressire
Senator and his followers,
and proclaims, you shall not add to
this the blessing of cheap telegraphy.
In the Senate Mr. Graham, of Pitts
burg, was the only member with in
dependence and progressive spirit
sufficient to stand up for the people
against the present telegraph monop
olists. We trust our members ol
Congress will disregard these super
serviceable instructions, and if in their
power give the people cheap tele
graphic, as well as cheap postal faciU
itiea.
Judge Dean, at the late term of
the Huntingdon county court, refused
all applications for license, pending
the decision of the jeojle ( n that
question. What course will our court
pursue at the approaching term?
Certain journals and politicians
in tbe fountry, nre gloating over
what they style the fall of Vice Pres
ident Colfax, and the wish being
father to the thought, they assume
the fact that iu tho Credit Mobilicr
investigation ho has not only been
proven corrupt, but a perjured vil
1 ain.
Tbe facts are as follows : Oakes
Ames testifies that he deposited a
certain amount of money with tbe
Sergeant-at-arms of the House,
which he afterwards distributed
among members of Congress, and he
produces a check marked S. C. for
twelve hundred dollars, which he al
leges Colfax received. To this Col
fax replies under oatb, that he nev-
r vf1 the check, or the sum of
money for which it was drawn. The
committee cause the books of the
bank where Colfax kept his money
to be produced, and it is shown that
be deposited on the 22d of June
968,63, of which 1200 was in cash,
and at once the conclusion is jumped
at, that the $1200 was the proceeds of
Ames check On 6uch testimony
dog could not be con? icted in a court
of justice. It is not presumable that
the check marked S. C. would be
paid without an indorsement.andyet it
is not claimed that it has the name of
Mr. Colfax on it And forsooth,
because that gentleman, about that
time, deposited $1200 in bank notes
and Ames sa vs. "I have no doubt it
was the proceeds of this check" it is
at once alleged that tbe fact is so, and
straightway the character of an ad
mitted christian gentleman, and pure
statesman is destroyed. Shame upon
such casuistrv ! The only evidence
in the case, is the declarations of an
admitted corruptionist on one hand,
and a denial of the truth of his allega
tion, on the other. Will an impar
tial public believe Ames or Colfax?
That is the onlv Question so far rais
ed. Let Ames fortify brs testimony
bv that of others, before it is allowed
to outweigh aud destroy the charac
ter of one, hitherto irreproachable in
his walk and conversation.
No Pennsylvania, having a true
appreciation of the good name. and
fair fame of the State, but must feel
humiliated by the conduct of the
members, presumed to reflect its dig
nity and ability, in those two repre
sentative bodies, the Constitutional
Convention and the Legislature. The
members of these two bodies bar
ring a few honorable exceptions ap
pear to entertain a petty dislike and
jealousy of each other, which crops
out on all occasions, and leads to hu
miliating displays of bad taste, bad
temper, and bad feelings. -
Thus, in discussing the proposed
reform in the legislative branch of our
government, members of the conven
tion have made an indiscriminate, un
just and uncalled-for attack upon all
past legislatures, many members of
which arc occupying scats in the con
vention; while from the legislative
body are hurled back sneers and re
crimination the Speaker of the lower
House so far forgetting bis own and
its dignity, as to vacate the chair, take
tbe floor, and ventilate bis spleen in
an ill-tempered denunciation of the
Convention; while the Senate betrays
pettiness and spite by joining the
House in a contemptuous refusal to
furnish copies of its journal to the
Convention. By this conduct, both
assemblages are bringing themselves
into public contempt, smutching the
fair fame of tbe State, degrading the
positions they should occupy in pub
lic estimation, and destroying their
influence for good.
It is natural that the Legislature
should feel restive under tbe denun
ciations of a body convened princi
pally with the object of reforming its
abuses and curtailing its powers, par
ticularly when that body so far for
gets itself as to assume tbe functions
of legislation, and its members to in
dulge in loose and unfounded state
ments and sweeping criminations, but
we submit, with all due deference,
that former Legislatures have not
been deemed immaculate, and it is not
necesKary for its own fair fame that
the present one should so pointedly
and rudely resent imputations upon
the integrity of its predecessors ; and
we also suggest to members of the
Convention, that they were assigned
the duty of reforming and correcting
abuses, which does not necessarily
imply the indiscriminate denunciation
of all who may have had the oppor
tunity of participating in them.
"Compounding tlni tho; are inclined to.
By damning thnne they have no mind to"
will neither blindfold the public, nor
be savory in its nostrils, and a reali
zation of this fact can not be too soon
impressed upon the members of both
those representative bodies.
Reform your manners, gentlemen,
all! and your discretion will be com
mendable, if eventually, your labors
are not fully appreciated. Apsnme a
dignity, if you have it not.
Speaking of the alleged attempt
that will be made to repeal tbc local
option law, at the present session, tbe
usually well informed Harrisburg
correspondent of tbe Blair county
Radical writes as follows :
There is no disguising tbe fact that
the liquor interest are going to make
a acaa-sei to repeal tne iiocai op
tion" bill, and rumor-pretty well
authenticated, has it that greenbacks
by the armful will be on hand to per
suade tbe legislature that the bill
ought to be repealed. The oppo
nents of the bill are movinar with
great caution and hope to accomplish
the repeal by money directly, know
ing tuey nave nothing else under the
shining heavens to offer. Tbe bill
originated in tbe House and passed
that body by a rote of CO to 34. Of
the 60 members voting in the affirma
tive, 24 are in the present House.
Their names are, Smith, Elliott, Por
ter, Daniels, Todges, Hancock, Strock,
Lam on, Albright and Levering of
Philadelphia; Sample and Ballen
tine, of Allegheny; Bowman, of Arm
strong; Dartt, of Bradford; Pnzer,
of Chester: Lawson, of Clarion;
Lawsho, of Clearfield ; Blark, of Dau
phin; Shuler, of Perry; Mahon, of
Franklin: Lane,, of Huntingdon;
Morford. of Mercer: Brunpes, of
Wyoming, and Latta, of Westmore
land. Of the 34 members voting in
the negative, there are in tbe present
House, Josephs and Dailey, of Phila
delphia ; Conrad, ol licrks ; vanagu,
of Bucks; Henry, of Cambria ; Noyes,
of Clinton ; Brockway, of Columbia ;
Smith, of Favettc : Delacy, Quigley
nil k'nnns of Luzerne: Morris, of
Northampton : King, of Schuylkill;
Beach, of Wayne, and Greenawalt, of
Westmoreland in an, io. ui tnc it
Senators who voted for the bill, 11
are still Senators, viz: Anderson,
Graham, Humphreys, of Allegheny;
Davis, of Philadelphia; Dclamater,
of Crawford; Fitch, of Bradford;
Rutan, of Beaver ; Strang, of Tioga ;
Warfel. of Lancaster : Weaklev. of
Cumberland, and White of Indiana.
Of the 14 Senators who voted against
the bill, 10 are still members, to wit:
Albright, of Carbon ; Collins, of Lu
zerne ; Crawford, of Juniata ; Davis,
of Berks ; Dill, of Northumberland ;
McSherry, of Adams ; Nagle, of Phil
adelphia; Pctrikcn, of Huntingdon;
Randall, of Schuylkill, and Wallace,
of ClearGcld. To sum up ; There
are in both Houses now 35 represen
tatives out of the 76 who voted for
the bill last winter, and 25 represen
tatives out of tho 48 wbo voted
acrainst the bill. Now. what are the
chances for a repeal of the bill
First Of the 100 members of the
lower nouse, 61, are new men, and
want to be returned ; Second Of the
60 who did vote for the bill, 21 arc
returned; Third It takes at least
51, on full House, to vote a repeal
Put my first and second points to
gethcr, add to them the almost unan
imous voice of the press, the direct
vote of fully four-Cfthd of the people
of both political parties (for it will be
that) the prayers of the good, the
tears of the wives, widows and or
phans, ana tell mc; are tnere ol rep
resentatives in the lower branch of
our State legislature ready to vote
for a repeal and face their constitu
ency at home ? A vote for repeal by
any member who voted for tho bill
or was elected first last fall, will sink
him politically and socially, deeper
than plummet ever sounded. My ad
vice to such a member, if there is one
determined to commit the contemplat
ed rape upon virtue and society, is to
never return ameng bis friends and
kindred ; but follow the example of
Judas when he sold out our Saviour.
The 15 niemiicrs who voted against
the bill last year, cannot vote for re
peal now, and satisfy their constitu
ents, and no one of them can plead
iernorancc of tbe sentiment of- his
people upon the question. When
Commonwealth is worked up to a fe
ver heat over the hellish enormities
of tbe license system, personal con
sistency is but another name for in
suit and will be accepted as an at
tempted cover to conceal the clear
fact of bribery. And what I have
written of the House is applicable to
tbe Senate. There 11 of tbc same
Senators who voted for the bill, 10
wbo voted against it and the balance
chosen, fresh from the people, since
the passage of the law. With the
sentiment of the people known, can
either of the 10 who voted against
then now plead consistency, or can
any of tbe new ones successfully urge
ignorance as a justification for voting
for a repeal r Shall money outweigh
all the interests of tbe church, the
State, society, duty to the rising gen
cration, common politeness to God ?
I have given you the names of the
men upon whom tbe responsibility of
the meditated outrage, if successful,
will fall with most crushing weight ;
I will give you the name of one who
is able and wbo will avert tbe calam
ity, if all else fails John F. Hart-

THE KANSAS SENAT0RSHIP.
Pomeroy Chanred With At
tempting to Necnre Ills Klec-
tion oy uriDerr.
Jka I. Iatga.Ua Elected Senator.
Topeka, Kansas, January 19.
Tho Legislature met in joint session
at noon to vote for United States ben
ator. Jjonir before tbc hour for as
sembling the galleries and stairway
of the hall were densely packed with
people of both sexes, and standing
room could not be obtained within
hearing or even in sight of the pro
ceedings inside the hall. John J.
Ingalls, of Atchison, was nominated,
as agreed upon by a caucus of sixty
members, as the fittest man to oppose
Pomeroy. Senator York then pro
ceeded to detail three alleged inter
views between himself and Pomeroy.
He said these interviews were held
in pursuance of a plan agreed upon
by himself and other prominent op
ponents of Pomeroy. The first one
was on rnday night last, at which
several persons were present, and dur
ing which the matter of tbe Ross
letter was discussed. The second
one was private, and at tbe solicita
tion of Pomeroy, on Monday night
At this Pomeroy offered him (York)
$8,000 for bis vote $2,000 cash, $5,
000 on Tuesday, and tbe remainder
on Thursday. York accepted the
offer and took $2,000 On Tuesday
afternoon met Pomeroy again by
agreement and received from him the
$5,000 promised. ; York then produc
ed a roll of bills from his pocket and
said "Here is the $7,000 paid to me
by Tomeroy, which I now desire to
place in the hands of the President of
this joint convention."
At the conclusion of lork's speech
a motion was made for a recess till
five o'clock in the afternoon, to give
Pomeroy an opportunity to defend
himself, which was defeated by a
large majority, and a motion to pro-;
ceed immediately to ballot for Senator!
was carried amidst great excitement
Before tbe Senate roll was finished
it was clearly evident that Ingalls
would carry the great body of the
Legislature, both of the Pomeroy and
anti-Pomeroy vote. The Senate stood
Ingalls 26 ; Lowe, 4 ; Harvey, 2;
York, 1. The vote of the House
stood Ingalls 89; Lowe, 3; Clark,
2 : Robinson, 1 ; Kingman, 1 : York,
1; Bland, 1. Ingalls was declared
elected and the joint convention ad
journed.
Immediately after adjournment com-
f laint was entered in the court against
'omeroy on a charge of bribery, and
bo was arrested and gave bail in tbe
sum of $5,000 to appear on Friday.
This evening York was arrested on a
charge of bribery and appeared for
examination, when the case was dis
missed and he was released. Pom
eroy's friends say he denies York's
charges in toto. and that he is pre
paring a statement regarding the
matter for publicrtion to-morrow. A
large and enthusiastic meeting was
held at Casta's Cpcra House to-night
to celebrate the election of Ingalls.
Speeches were made by . Ingalls and
others and a series of appropriate res
olutions passed.
OCR WAUI3fTOS LETTER.
Wasuinuton, Jan 30, 1873.
THE SENATE TELEGRAPH BILL.
Thfi most intcrestiiiff measure be
fore Concrrcss at present is tho Sen
ate Post Office Committee's Postal
Telegraph bill. Under it if adopted
telegraphing will be reduced to one
cent a word for distances under 250
miles, two cents for over 250 and un
der 500 miles and a cent a word when
sent by night any distance under
der 100 miles. The operations
of this new plan will afford accom-
dation to the people of nearly all
towns containing 500 population
which will double the number of tele
graph oflices. It will be or immense
advantage to tbe provincial press and
throughout to the masses of tbc peo
ple. Heretofore none but tbe bigh
Ericed dailies of the great cities have
ad the ability to publish the news
of tbe day in full or unless in a few
favored cases to publish it all with
out the necessity of incurring greater
expense than any provincial paper
can afford. Thus, the masses of the
people, under the present monopoly,
has been cut off from the great edu
cator of the people, and tbe greatest
source of intellectual culture and
practical information bas been re
stricted and manipulated for the ben
efit of the few at tbe expense Of tbe
many. Shall such a tyrranny be
submitted to for the future or shall
the servants of the people receive
pressure from the press and the people
that henceforth these telegraph pnn
ccs who dress in purple and fine linen
and fare sumptuously every day shall
give up their profitable monopoly and
allow the masses of the people to
share in the benefits of a discovery
that not only belongs to onr country,
but which is the rightful heritage of
every citizen of the country.
KANSAS SENATORIAL ELECTION.
i lie Legislature or .Kansas on
Wednesday elected to the U. S. Sen
ate, John J. Infl-alls of Atchison. He
was selected as the strongest man
defeat Pomeroy by the opponents of
that gentleman. Mr. lorkc, a State
Senator, at onco announced himself
as an opponent to Senator Pomeroy
and stated that in pursuance
of a plan agreed upon by himself and
others of opponents of a re-election he
held interviews with Senator Pome
roy who offered him (Mr. Yorke) $8,
000 for his vote, $2,000 cash, and the
balance in three dsj-8 ; that he took
$2,000 and afterwards received $5,
000 more. He then produced a roll
of bank bills from his pocket and said:
"Here is the $7,000 paid me by Pome
roy, which I now desire to place in
tbe hands of the President of this
joint Convention." On this statement,
after refusing to take a recess for the
purpose of hearing a reply from Sen
ator Pomeroy, a ballot was immcdi
aiely taken which in the excitement
resulted in tbe election of Ingalls
with not a single vote for Pomeroy.
It is presumed that something more
than this statement, which may have
been false, was well understood by
the Convention, before it would re
fuse a bearing to a party charged
with so great an offense, and proceed
to decide against him finally. If the
statement was. true as alleged, Sen
ator Pomeroy has disgraced one of
the highest positions of honor in the
country and ought to retire into ob
livion, followed bv the execration of
all good men who have a pride in
tbc honor of the nation.
SCATHED DIGNITY.
Senator J. W. Paterson, in the
Credit Mobilier investigation, has
prevaricated in such a gross manner
that be bas lost most of the confidence
which his friends had reposed in him
as a man or trutn and veracity.
This is said more in sorrow than in
anger, for it is not only a disgrace to
tbe Senator, but tbc good name of
the body with which he has so long
been identified is more or less affect
ed by the foolish, inconsiderate and
false position wbicb he ha taken. If
he and others had frankly admit-
ed the part they took in the
purchase of credit mobilier stock, they
could have been sustained in all that
so far appears to have been done, but
the denial in positive terms and then
the proof which followed showing the
denials to have been grossly untrue is
sufficient to make these gentlemen
bide their diminished heads for shame.
Vice President Colfax also appearsjin
lamentably dishonorable position
before the nation he represents.
Through a friend and counsel, he pro
poses still to show that be bas not
prevaricated, and for his own sake and
that of the dignified office he fills, it
is to be hoped that be will be able to
lift the lood off his otherwise damag
ed reputation. Your correspondent
would gladly recognize any evidence
exculpating bim from falsehood that
can be brought forward and sus
pend an adverse opinion until an op
portunity ii allowed for the purpose.
He is not one of those who like filthy
birds after carrion delight to see cor
rnption and who feast with avidity
upon spoiled reputations

OVWL HAUBISBfBU LETTER.
Harrisburq, Jan. 31.
In the Senate, petitions have been
presented, asking to have the act pro
hibiting the sale of intoxicating liq
uors on election days so amended as
to prohibit its sale for a period of
twenty-four hours after the opening
-a 1 - 1

On Tuesday evening both branches
of the Legislature met in informal
sesion in the Hall of the House. A
delegation in tho interests of the Cen
tennial Commission from Philadelphia
headed by Daniel J. Morell and Lewis
Wain Smith, appeared beforo tbe ses
sion. Their object was to secure an
appropriation from the State of one
million of dollars in aid of tbe cele
bration and exhibition to be held in
that city in 1876. A number of speech
es were made, aud tbe appropriation
urged.
It appears to us that this is a large
sum of money for the state to give
away, .even thouirh tho object for
which it is asked is highly patriotic,
Inasmuch as Philadelphia expects to
reap a rich harvest from those visit
ing the city on that occasion, it would
only be proper for her citizens to bear
a large share of tbe expense.
The Legislature seems to be fairly
settling down to work. On Tuesday
a larcre number of bills were consid
ered in tbe House, aud upwards of
forty were finally passed. None of
these were of more than local inter
est, being from the private calendar.
Senator Wallace has presented a
petition aarainst the introduction of
the "Heathen Chinee" into the State.
In tbe House, Mr. Lawsbc offered

A t'lorg) man Ilorarwbfps Hla Bride
or Fonr Months.
About fifteen months ago, the Rev.
J. Ilchsteiner, a native of Switzer
land, came to Richmond, Indiana, and
took charge of the Lutheran church
in that city as pastor. He met Miss
Mary Bier, with whom he seemed to
fall violently in love at first sight.
He began a vigorous courtship, which
terminated by their marriage on the
29th of August last.
All accounts agree that Mary made
him a gentle and loving wife, and
they were apparently contented and
happy. Soon after their marriage
thev made a short wedding tour to
St Louis, and just here began the
trouble which finally led to the most
disgraceful conduct on his part, and
to a final and very natural separation
a fiTI . T II I
on hers, v hue in l liouis, uens
teiner met a former fiancee, and not
having heeded the adage, "Be sure
you are off with the old love before
you are on with the new," the old at
tachment returned, ana ne negnn to
manifest a coldness and indifference
towards his bride, and seem deter
mined to get rid of her at any cost
Shortly after Christmas, however,
6he revealed the fact to two of her
lady intimates that on the night of the
27th of December he had whipped
her most unmercifully with a leather
whip on ber nude body. he cxhibi
ted to them tbe cuts and bruises on
her person. The rnmors finally
reached the cars of her father, in
Greenville, Ohio, and he started at
once to Richmond to institute an in
quiry, and if his suspicions of ill
treatment on tho part of Rehsteincr
were confirmed, to procure a separa
tion and the return of his daughter
to the paternal roof.
On Sunday he went to the house
and asked Ilchsteiner whether he
would allow him to ask his reasons for
the way in which he had conducted
himself toward bis wife. Rehsteiner
literally howled, and ordered him to
leave the house. Mr. Bier- obeyed,
and returned no more ; but he went to
the mayor on Monday morning and
filed a complaint against Rehsteiner
for assaulting his daughter.and hadhim
promptly bronjrht into the mayor's
court for trial.
Mrs. Rehsteiner was placed on the
witness stand, and testified to the
whipping as above mentioned, and

maining 9n her person. She also
stated that on last Saturday night he
again attempted to whip her, and
even had the impudence to try to
compel her to go and get the whip for
that purpose. Failing in this, howe
ver, he went and got the whip him
self, and gave her several blows.
Rehsteincr pleaded "not guilty,"
but tbe evidence of his guilt was so
palpable that the mayor, without hes
itation, fined bim to the fall extent of
the law, the fine, including costs,
amounting to $ 1 29. 40. The depravity
of this man was only equalled by his
brazen effrontery in appearing Dcfore

lIARRISBITItf.
Harrisbcro, January 27. In the
House Mr. Bowman offered a resolu
tion dispensing with tbe Monday
night sessions. The vote on the res
olution was 52 to 32 in favor of tho
resolution.
The Speaker ruled that it required
a two-thirds vote to change a rule of
the House. His decision was appeal
ed from on the ground that the
House had not adopted the rulrs of
previous Legislatures, and that the
action of other Legislatures could not
bind this Legislature. Tbe debate on
the appeal occupied tbc whole of tho
night session.
Brockway and Orvis took the
ground that tho principle that other
Legislatures could bind future bodies
was wrong, which they were opposed
to.
SPEAKER ELLIOTT CONTENDED
that the House of Representatives is
a continuous body, and that tbe rules
of previous Legislatures were binding
on tbe present body until cnangeu
and it required a two-thirds vote to
change any of the rules atore said
On the appeal the vote was 62 to
16 yeas on sustaining the decision.
Mr. Brockway offered a resolution
calling upon the Auditor General to
furnish a detailed statement of what
taxes are due for tho past eight years
from any corporation operating under
the laws of the Commonwealth, with
full returns of the sums due from
such corporations.
Speaker Elliott (on the floor) moved
its reference to the Committee on
Ways and means. Carried by 46 to 31
Mr. Brown, of Erie To change
the rate of interest to seven per cent.
except when there are contracts.
Senate not in session.
Harrisburo, January 28. Tbe
following bills were read in place :
Mr. Humphreys Supplement to
the act incorporating Chartiers Valley
Improvement Company.
Mr. Graham An act rela!iug to
the Sinking Fund of Allegheny coun
ty. Also a supplement to the act to
permit voters of this Commonwealth
to vote every three years on the ques
tion of granting license to sell liquor,
which is as follows :
Whereas, doubts have arisen in the
minds of some as to whether
the act to which this is a sup
plement has not been repealed, so
far as regards tbe county of Alle
gbeny, by an act to regulate the sale
of intoxicating liquors in the county
of Allegheny, approved April 3, 187
therefore,
Be it enacted. vc. That the last
said mentioned act was not intended
to repeal the act to which this is a
supplement, . but the same is in full
force and effect as if the act of April
3, 1872, had not been passed, and
that the election provided for under
said act of March, 1872, shall be held
on the third Friday of March, 1873,
and every third year thereafter in the
several wards, boroughs and town
ships in said county.
Harrisburg, Jauuary 29. Reports
were made from committees as fol
fows :
Mr. White, from the Judiciary Gen
eral, made a report in reference to the
manner of incorporating insurance
companies, showing that the courts
have full power, and that tharters
passed by the Legislature, where such
powers exist, tre of no use. Ordered
to lie printed.
For the completion of the H. V
and C. Railroad.
Extending the time for incorporat
ing the Indiana County Deposit Bank ;
and bill relative to bank taking mort
gages as collateral security.
HO CHE.
Over an hour was Sient this morn
ing on a resolution relative to tbe
keeping of liquor in the cloak room.
Mr. McMahon, of Franklin, stated
that the page boys had got at it and
some became intoxicated.
A resolution prohibiting it passed
by a vote or 91 to 3.
Mr. Young, of Allegheny, introduc
ed a resolution to print an extra nom
ber of debates of the Constitutional
Convention.
Speaker Elliot left the chair and
made a violent speech against it He
said be didn't want a copy of the de
bates in his house. He was opposed
to printing any or them.
a m rr m a
air. jiitcncii, ol lioga, louowed in
a bitter, sarcastic speech against print
ing any or the proceedings, lie said
the wise men of that convention had
sat silent; the vain had given vent
to their vapid talk.
The resolution to print was lost by
a large vote.
lieports lrom committees were in
order, and every one of the thirty
committees of the House poured ouj a
perfect stream of bills. They will all
be printed and put on the calendar
for next Tuesday.
Several bills appointing additional
notaries public in western counties
were amended so as to authorize the
Governor to nsc his judgment, and
appoint as many as he may think nec
essary. This has been already pro
posed in the fcenatc, but defeated.
HOI'S E.
The House was engaged all day in
the private eclandar.
Harrisburg, January 30. The
following reports of committees were
presented :
An act regarding the sale of lum
ber. The act repeals all local laws
in the measurement of lumber.
An act to collect moneys by decree
of Orphans' Court.
An act relating to foreign insur
ance companies was reported nega
tively.
An act to facilitate the settlement
ofe8tati)s of decedents,
An act to prevent tho posting of
advertisements on walls.
Allowing common carriers to sell
goods after a period of three months.
A joint resolution relative to the
amendment of the federal constitu
tion in the election of President and
Vice President, Ac, That portion
which provides for the election of
United States Senators by tbe peo
ple was stricken out by tbc committee.
Mr. Rutan's supplement to the lo
cal option law was again postponed.
Mr. Rutan called up the joint resolu
tion instructing our Senators and re
questing our members in Congress to
vote against the general government
operating tho telegraph lines of this
country. .
HOl'SE.
Mr. Newmycr called up his bill to
repeal the usury laws, and explained
its purport in a few words. The
moral effect of bank officers being law
breakers is bad. The day for limit
ing tho price for the use of money
has gone by. New York and Ohio
on each Bide of us are adopting luws
sjmilar to this, and if we fail to keep
jeven Ufc them they will divert from
our State the capijal nesessary to de
velop her magnificent resources.
Mr. JVelsh, of Philadelphia, offer
ed an amendment limiting the rate to
eight per cent ... ' '
Mr. McCorraick spoke against; the
amendment and in favor of the bill. I
hope this amendment, said he, will be
voted down. Money ia worth ten or
twelve per cent, in the market, and it
ought to bring just what it is worth.
There is no reason, either legal or
moral, why a man should not be
bound to pay what he contracts to
pay. I put this on tbc broad ground
thut money is property, and the own
er of it has a right to make out of it
all he can, and I am opposed to put
ting a restriction of even twelve per
cent on loans. When a man borrows
money and contracts to , pay a bigh
rate of interest it is to be presumed
he knows what it is worth to him,
and should be bound by bis contract.
I am opposed to reducing the restric
tion under twelve per cent
Mr. McMahon, of Franklin opposed
tho bill.
Mc Lawsko of Clearfield spoke in
favor of tbe bill..
Mr. Latta, of ' Westmoreland, op
posed tho bill. Tho rate of interest
bad remained at six per tent, for one
hundred and twenty-five years. Let
there be no change.
After it had been discussed for
some time moved to postpone further
consideration nntil this day two
weeks, when it comes up as the spec
ial order.'
C'l'BBEXT NOTE.
The entire product of tbe lend
mines of Wisconsin since they were
first opened is estimated at nearly
$300,000,000.
During the late storm seven chil
dren, going home from school, lost
their way and were frozen to death,
between Sleepy Eye Lake and Gol
den Gate, Brown county, Minnesota.
Business is almost entirely suspend
ed at Salt Lake City in consequence
of tbe epizootic. Every stage line
has been discontinued, and ail teams
of mules are down with the disease.
There will probably bo a suspension
in transportation, and a serious loss
to the mining companies will result.
Louis Napoleon had nearly a mill
ion dollars' worth of property in
New York city, and made severa
large investments there during tbe
last year of his life. Intimate friends
of tbe ex-Empress Eugenic say that
she and her son will visit this coun
try next summer.
Just at the conclusion of a recent
circus erformance in a North Caroli
na town, tbe clown stepped forward
aud informed the vast assembly that
they had taken in about $G000' that
day more money, he ventured to
say, that any minister of the gospel
in that county would receive .for a
year's service. He then told them
that a large portion of the -audience
were church members, who would
plead their poverty when asked for
money to support the gospel, and se
verely exposed thoir inconsistency.
A few Sundays afterwards he preach
ed in the same community, and made
a strong appeal for missions, when a
collection was taken up amounting to
$433.
