the proud vauntings of the German
naval officers; and
"Whereas, The innumerable kindly
acts of the British people have
again revealed them as the steadfast
friends of the Republic;
"Now, therefore, I, Martin G.
Brumbaugh, gratefully acknowledg

British Navy and Army, and mind
ful of the splendid service they have
given the cause of democracy and,
resolved that the sacrifice willingly
made to save Belgium and France
from complete annihilation, do here

planning commemorate in formal
ways in press and pulpit and public

NO CONTEST FOR
SPEAKERSHIP
Scenes of Last Two Sessions
Will Not Be Repeated;
Leaders Back Sproul
According to the Philadelphia news
papers the Republican leaders in that
city have decided that there shall be
no contest for Speaker of the next
House and that they will back Gov
ernor-elect William C. Sproul in his
desire for a capable Speaker, a good
legislative program and a short ses
sion.
The Philadelphia Inquirer speaks in
a very positive way to-day about the
matter, saying:
"Governor-elect Sproul has Inform
ed the Republican leaders that he is
in favor of a short Bession of the Leg
islature, which convenes on the llrst
Tuesday of January next, and ~lt has
been tentatively agreed to support a
resolution calling for final adjourn
ment of the General Assembly on
either April 17 or April 24 next." The
i.quirer also .snys the Speaker has
not been decided upon.
The Philadelphia Record says that
the Penrose and Varo factions un-
NOVEMBER 14, 1918.
nounced that Governor Sproul would
name the next Speaker and that there
would be no contest over the coveted
position at the beginning of the now
state administration. As the General
Assembly Is overwhelmingly Repub
lican, it is conceded that the Repre
sentative selected by the next Gov
ernor will be elected on the fli'st bal
lot. It was also learned yesterday
that the next Speaker will not bo a
I'hlladelphian.
The North American says: "Repub
lican leaders have decided that the]
next session of the Legislature, \vhich
opens in January will be short. Gov
ernor-elect Sproul is opposed to a
long sesslqn and Senator Vare has
told his follows that he is opposed to
long recess periods."
Senator Vare gives his views exten
sively in the Public Ledger, which
consistently opposes him.
"I am going to' propose a session
that will last not more than 100
days." said Senator Vare. "X am going
to make that an issue at Harrisburg.
It can be done If the members get
down to work and quit wasting time
by long vecesses. Legislative sessions
usually last about six months. Every
thing that we have to do can be done
in from ninety to one hundred days
if the members make an earnest effort
to accomplish that end. Of course, if!
the usual rule of working two-or
three days eacli week is followed, the |
session will be needlessly protracted
. at great loss of time and greater ex
pensc to the state. If a definite pro
gram is mapped out at the beginning
and conscientiously followed, there ia
no reason why everything that is to
be done cannot be done in Just half
the time the Legislature usually is in
session. Nothing need be slighted;
legislation need not bo railroaded.
Thorough consideration can be
given all legislation in three months .
ff the members will consent to work."
Governor-elect Sproul's plana for
a constitutional convention to bring
about necessary changes in the con
stitution of the state undoubtedly
will win the support of the Vare wing
remarks the Ledger. Senator Vare
was asked his opinion on this matter
yesterday. He replied that he express
ed himself in favor of a constitutional
convention two years ago and still
was of the same mind.
