WITH THE LAW-MAKERS. NOTES AND COMMENTS FROM THE PENNSYLVANIA CAPITAL. Money Question Is Becoming an Annoy ing One to the Governor—Republicans Intend to Cat Down the School Appro priation and Increase Taxes. Harrisburg, Pa., March 17, 1899. Through the reckless legislation of several of the past sessions the state is today behind in its payments on appro priations about $3,500,000. This debt has been carried along from year to year and now efforts will be made to have it paid. Governor Stone held a conference recently with the house committee on appropriations and the situation was thoroughly gone over. The governor advocates the cutting down the yearly appropriation to the public schools about $1,500,000. Gover nor Hastings also tried this during his term, but the country members opposed it to a man and the plan had to be abandoned. As far as salaries of public school teachers are concerned, tho school dis tricts need all of this appropriation and more to It. It may seem scarcely credi ble, but It is nevertheless true that the average rate of wages of teachers In this state Is only $315.71 por year. The lowest salaries paid are in a township in Crawford county where a teacher re ceives only $82.83% for a year's teach ing. There aro plenty of others who receive a hundred dollars for a term of six months. THE GOVERNOR 18 DETERMINED that unless additional revenue is pro vided he will not approve any appro priations to hospitals or educational in stitutions, and that no more money will be appropriated or laws approved which carry with them appropriations until the state's finances get into bettor shape. This debt of $3,500,000 must be paid during his administration. He does not expect this money to be paid by the present session, but he Insists that it must be liquidated before his term ex pires. The members of the committee practi cally agreed that no new applicants for state aid would be considered; that their bills would not even bo reported; that the public schools were rocotving too much of $11,000,000 every two years. It was pointed out that the schools re ceive one-half of the entire revenue of the state, the other half being distribut ed, In round numbers, as follows; State government, $U,000,000; National Guard, $1,000,000; Insane and penal institutions, $1,500,000; hospitals and charitable in stitutions, nearly $2,000,000; sinking fund, $6,600,000. Governor Stone says that the raising and equipping of the six now regiments of the National Guard would require an ADDITIONAL MILITARY APPROI'RIATION of $300,000, unless money is saved by the elimination of tho annual encamp ment. Governor Stone Intimated that ke would favor the Hosack bill now before the legislature, permitting the state treasurer to retain all of the personal property tax for two years. Three fourths of this tax Is now returnod to the counties and amounts to nearly $4,000,000 In two years. The executive is responsible for the Introduction of this bill. The appropriation committee has counted up tho bills asking for state aid and the amount foots up to about $30,000,000. This is ten millions more than tho revenues amount to. These bills will be scaled down to meet the revenues and if possible provide for the floatiug debt made by previous legisla tures. Representative Hoskins, of Erie county, has offered a bill providing for the levy and collection for a two mill tax on real estate, THE PROCEEDS TO BE RETURNED to the schools districts of the state In direct proportion to the number of teachers employed for the annual term not less than seven and one-half months. The purpose of-the bill is to improve the schools by increasing teachers' sal aries. Governor Stone has signed the bill providing for the granting of divorce decrees, and also the resolution to be sent to President McKlnley recommend ing the promotion of Colonol Hawkins, of the Tenth Pennsylvania regiment, now at Manila, to be a brlgadior general. He has also approved the bill authoriz ing tho Pennsylvania Canal Company to abandon part of Its canal. with the constable fee bill are the only new laws passed so far this session. There are two sanitary bills before the legislature that, If passod, wouid be a benefit to tho sanitary considerations of the state. One of the bills Is supple mentary to the act providing for the quarantine of dogs during an epidemic of rabies. Under the supplement the agents of the live stock sanitary board aro given authority to shoot dogs strickon with rabies. The other bill In troduced is to compel persons living in country districts to bury the bodies of horses and other animals dying of certain infectious diseases. Many farm ers now leave animals dead of all kinds FREELAND, PA., MONDAY, MARCH 20, 1899. of diseases lying in tho open fields, where they attract buzzards and it is believed that disease is spread through the agency of these scavengers. Since the constablo fee bill has been passed and signed by the governor it is discovered that a grave mistake was made. As approved by the executive the act makes no provisions as to how the money shall be paid and a remedial bill has been presented which provides that tho county commissioners shall draw a warrant on the county treasurer. The capitol bulling commission has not yet made a report to this session and when it does there will be a lively time. Owing to the low state of finances it will not be surprising if no money i 9 appropriated to complete the capitol building. AT. PATRICK'S DAY. The patron saint of Ireland was the directing power in the assembly today. Song and story varied the monotony of reading bills and voting for United States senator. It was by all odds the unique celebration of half a generation. Speeches, songs, stories, etc., flowed freely, the whole ending with the offer ing of a resolution that "Ireland ought to be freej" which Representative Fow wanted to amend by moving that it be towed over to this side the Atlantic, an chored off the Battery and turned into a ward of New York. Tho committee appointed to investi gate the charges of corruption in the election of senator and the passage of the McCarrell bill have held several sessions and examined a number of wit nesses, who testified that they wore ap proached and offered money considera tion for their support. The committee was to have made its report on March 14, but the bouse extended the time until March 27. Nlssley. Some Court Decialonfl. The honest creditors of Marcy town ship have for a long time been unable to collect their debts on that township, and over a year ago Attorney Thomas I). Shea was appointed commissioner to ascertain the indebtness of the township. At that time the debt was supposed to about SB,OOO, but when the claims wore all in before Mr. Shea he had claims amounting to $30,000. After a careful investigation ho found most of tho claims fraudulent, others wore on judg ment where no judgment existed and a number of men had orders for work done on the road which were never Is sued by the supervisors who had charge. Mr. Shea threw out about $20,000 worth of these claims and refnsod to allow them to be considered. The holders of the bogus orders excepted to his report and after an argument before Judge Lynch he handed down his opinion last week in which he scores the people of the township for allowing 9uch a state of affairs to exist and calls upon thorn to look after the matter and bring it before the grand jury if the facts are as stated in tho commissioner's report. A case of interest to beneficial socie ties was decided by Judge Halsey. It was that of John Davison vs. Division 5, A. O. 11., of Plymouth. This was an action of exceptions to the referee's re port. The plaintiff sued for sick bene fits that he had never received, and which the society claimed it could not pay, as the sick fund had been exhaust ed and for that reason sick benefits were suspended on April 8, 1897, after which time the plaintiir was taken sick. The refereo decided in favor of the so ciety, and Judge Halsey stated that he cannot dispute the referee's findings under the law.

If you ask a woman for a reason give her time to make one up. Dismal people would never smile were It not for other people's bad luck. A cynic sneers whenever he sees a frosted wedding cake in a bake shop window. Extravagant people are sometimes cured by having to earn the money they spend. After marriage a girl becomes too economical to cry on her husband's coat collar. Man gets ready for winter by saving money; woman gets ready by making money fly. It is the people without background who generally scramble to be seen in the foreground. A strong minded woman is one who goes shopping without counting up her change on the way borne.

Ann's cemetery. Friday's Celebration. The celebration of St. Patrick's Day on Friday was carried out as planned. The terrible condition of tho streets, which were covered with mud from end to end, deterred many from participat ing. nevertheless a large number trav ersed the route and presented a good ap pearance. The weather overhead was beautiful and spring-like, and had the walking been halt as good tho number in lino would havo been much larger. The floats were neatly decorated and were filled with school children repre senting the American states and the counties of Ireland. Miss Bid Curran as the Oodness of Liberty and Miss Annie Dever as the Maid of Erin per formed their parts creditably. Music was furnished by two bands and four drum corps. The St. Patrick's band made its first public appearance since the membership has changed and rendered its music with credit to the members, and St. Ann's band played its usual enlivening selections. The Sham rock Drum Corps, of Eckley, was not behind in musical ability, and tho mem bers of the Hibernian, f town, cut quite a figure with their green capes and straw hats. Anthracite Coal Trade. From the Philadelphia Inquirer. Prices of anthracite coal are unchang ed, although the operators claim there is a firmness to tho market, which, how over, they admit can only be maintained by a restriction of production, as the season for brisk demand based upon large consumption is past. Stocks both in New England and the West are con sidered small, but entirely sufficient for present ncods. The production for March will be restricted within 3,000,000 tons, which Is about the usual output for tho first month of spring. While the reports as to the formation of a trust seem to be without foundation, it is nevertheless apparent that the trade interests are pulling together more in harmony and In a manner to benefit both tho producer and tho car rier. Burglar, at Handy Kun. Three men who gavo their names as Owen Langton and Thomas Flanigan, of New Philadelphia, and Alex Delanoy, of Tamaqua, were arrestod In Hazlcton yesterday with a quantity of clothing an.d other goods in thoir possession. This was later identified as tho property of Walter A. Lelsenring, of Sandy Run, and an examination of his residence at Sandy Run disclosed the fact that burglars had ransacked the building on Friday night. Mr. Lelsenring and fami ly are not living at Sandy Run just now. The burglars will probably be prosecuted. Daring Ilurglar* In Wllkeslmrre. Burglars entered the house of James McGlnley early Thursday morning and secured about 8125 in gold and a lot of valuables. The family slept on the third floor, and, fearing some one might awaken, the burglars placed chairs at the head of the stairs and along the hallway, so that if anybody attempted to pursue them they would fall over the chairs. They also pulled down the pipe of the kitchen stove and let the gas escape, with tho evident Intention of smothering the sleepers. PLEASURE CALENDAR.
