ject to be discussed to-day would be
reparations on which the two premiers,
according to best information, failed to

Pennsylvania Game Commission Buys
One Hundred.
Beavers may build their homes with
in a few miles of Philadelphia in the
near future, if .present plans of the
state game commission are carried out.
The commission has purchased 100
beavers In Canada, and will import
the first lot of 40 within the next week
or two.
It is planned to locate colonies of
the animals in game sanctuaries in va
rious counties, where it is believed the
beaver will rapidly become adapted to
the surroundings. One of the spots
chosen is the preserve in northern
.Bucks county.
But three colonies of beavers now
are in Pennsylvania, two in Potter
county and one in Clearfield. One of
the colonies in Potter county is com
prised of native beavers. It was acci
dentally discovered about two years
ago, when a woman owning a tract of
woodland wrote the commission and
gave warning that beavera were de
stroying her trees and that unless they
were removed she would shoot them.
The commission up to that time was
not aware of the existence of any
beavers in Pennsylvania. When it was
ascertained the beaver would thrive in
the state, a sufficient number were
purchased in Canada to form two other
colonies.
Distribution of the 100 beavers to be
received from Canada will be made j
among the game preserves in Potter,
Luzerne, Carbon, Tioga. Sullivan and
Bucks counties. Pittsburgh Gazette-1 day.

For People of So Great Intelligence,
They "Frequently Present a Sorry
Spectacle," Declares Hughes.
Cambridge, Mass., June 21. Charles
K. Hughes, Vjieaking at the centenary
of Harvard Law school here to-day, de
clared that "in the act of governing
ourselves we not only fall short of
what we should expect in a free people
of so great intelligence, but we fre
quently present a sorry spectacle." His
subject was, "Some Observation on
Iegal Education and Democratic Prog
ress.
A passion for legislation is not a
sign of democratic, progress." he said,
and in the mass of measures intro
duced in the legislatures of our free
commonwealths there is too little evi
dence of perspective and an abundance
of elaborate -and dreary futilities. Oc
casionally, a constructive measure of
great benefit is skillfully planned, but
we are constantly impressed with the
lost motion and the ast waste in the
endeavor of democracy to function
wisely." "
The regrettable thing. Mr. Hughes
continued, is "that the tendency to en
act uncertain laws seems to be increas
ing, and. what is stijjl worse, that the
people tolerate it and that there are
but faint demands for improvement.
Our material progress seems to have
created complexities beyond our polit-i-al
competence, and disregarding the
lessons of history there has been a dis
position to revert to the methods of
tyranny in order to meet the problems
