Amendatory Acts Are Keep
ing Men Busy to Un
yi Many of the rural members of the
le-gislature have taken bales of bills
homo to study during the "Master
vacation." which was ordained by con
current resolution last week, and
when they return to Harrisburg for
the reconvening of the houses on the
night of April It they will be prepar- j
ed to consult with colleagues about j
measures to support. Meanwhile, |
some of the members of the House
front counties near Harrisburg will
have a series of conferences on legis
lation and be prepared to meet with
their fellow-members from more dis- ,
tant sections of the State.
Some of these legislators were ,
against the proposition for a recess
and voiced some demands to work, but '
failed to put them to the test on |
the floor of the House. • So they have
concluded to make the best of the
lime and study up the bills. One re- .
suit may be the slaughter of a num
ber of measures which have been re
posing in committee desks. Several
of the chairmen of committees an
nounced before leaving Harrisburg
that they intended to start "spring
housecleanlng" when they returned to
l.arrisburg. so as to clear the ways
for the bip legislation and the appro
priation bills.
One of the features of the numerous
bills presented this session has been
the number of amendatory acts. This
Is partly due to the fact that the ten
dency of General Assemblies for the
last ten years has been to codify the
laws and that many relating to the
tonne subject have been placed in con
venient form. A considerable part. ]
however, are due to the purely lo.al i
conditions, which has Increased the I
amount of committee work to be done.
Just as an example of the way amend
atory legislation appears it may bo
said that in the House alone there are
fifty proposed amendments to the
school code and a score to the bor
ough code. A dozen amendments to
the highway laws and quite a few
til the township laws are proposed,
while bills relating to poor districts
are legion.

shevik!, urges that representatives of I
neutral nations should be invited to

Germany Is Still
Awarding Iron
- Crosses to Soldiers
Coblcnz. April 14.—Iron crosses |
are still being awarded to German |
soldiers in various parts of the :
country. Newspapers in the Anteri- '
can occupied areas as well as those
published in unoccupied Germany i

effect that word had been received
from the war ministry that a soldier
has been awarded the iron cross for
some act of gallantry during the war.
State Regulation
For Stock Issues
Administration support will get be
hind the new Hess "Blue sky" bill,
designed to regulate by means of
State supervision, the Issuance and
sale of securities other than those
cf national or State character, banks,
yublic service corporations, building
r.r,d loan associations and of corpora
tions not organized for profit. This
bill, which contains the provisions of
the Kansas law and some regula
tions in force in other states, is the
second of the kind to be presented
by the Lancaster city number and
is the result of conferences which
followed the introduction of the ori
ginal bill, the new bill is adapted to
Pennsylvania and has been consider
ably dismissed.
The measure is on the House cal
endar and it is the intention to pass
it in the lower branch in Easter
week. It will not only provide the
/supervision of the securities so that
they may be passed upon before be
ing Issued, but dealers will also be
licensed. All issues of public serv
ice corporations now have to be re
viewed by the Public Service Com
mission which issues certificates of
notification, while financial concerns
and building and loan associations
have long been under the banking
department. All bonds of the b'nited
States or Pennsylvania State bonds,
bonds of any other state or of va
rious municipal divisions would be
exempt as well for the reason that
they are public matters. But the se
curities of many corporations in
which there is much activity and of
promotion schemes would come under
State regulation.
