Under a House resolution, a commit-
tee, of whbeh Mr. Matthews, of Brad-
ford, was chairman, n Monday made
an extended rswept substance as fol-
First--That the leases of the State
convicts for the fur years ending Jan-
uary 1 IO, have, fora portinof the
time, to wit, ng the years and
190 been tdIb for convicts
coned in bhoesptl aear Oala.
Second-During the period stated in
the foregoing pararaph the lessees
have been rebated on various prisoners
confined In the hospital a total of 9,6515
dam. 0
fhrd-The amount deducted from the
contract price for prisoners confined in
the said hospital amounts to $11,005.66
for the twoyears named.
Fourth-The lessees have been given
credit for escaped convicts during the
existence of the present lease to the
amount of $6,186.M9.
The committee presented a collection
of valuable information concerning the
management of the State convicts, and
recommended that the Attorney-General
be instructed to recover the amount of
$16,192.62 thus shown to be due from
the convict lessees.
The practice of giving rebates to the
lessees on such convicts originated with
the Jennings administration, according
to the committee's report, but is being
continued under the present contract.
If it is unauthorized by the terms of the
contract, it will, of course, be discontin-
ued; and the committee is correct in de-
manding the recovery of the sums thus
unlawfully allowed.
In the Senate, on Tuesday Senator
West, chairman of the special commit-
tee to investigate the charge that cer-
tain persons were connected with State
printing contract in violation of law,
submitting the following report: Your
committee appointed in compliance with
Senate resolution No. 46 as anmeded,
relative to the allege rumors that
members of the Boardof State Institu-
tions were interested in the Capital
Publishing Oompany, and with the State
printer In his contract with the State,
leave to report that the said com-
mittee has taken the testimony of all
witnesses suggested and made a thor-
ough examination and find that while
there were rumors to the effect that
members of the Board of State Institu-
tions were interested in the printing
contract, we find that there is absolute-
ly no foundation for said rumors and
W nothing in the testimony to indicate
that any member or members of said
board are now, or have heretofore been
interested in said printing concern or
any other printing business. The evi-
dence taken by the committee was or-
dered printed m the journal of Friday.
Late on Tuesday afternoon Governor
Broward submitted to the Senate and
House a voluminous document signed
by all of the members of the present
Board of State Institutions, and com-
prising an answer to the report of the
joint committee which investigated the
insane hospital under House concurreut
resolution No. 6. After being read, it
was committed to the table subject to
call in each house. The enormous vol-
ume of the document precludes any at-
tempt to give even an abstract of its
contents, and its publicity, like that of
the committee's report, must depend on
its publication in full in the legislative
journals and the daily press.
This answer or protest of the board
makes an elaborate defense against the
substance and spirit of the committee's
report, and labors with feverish anxiety
to discredit the report and the members
of the joint committee.
If the board had been content to re-
pel or deny such accusations made by
the committee as it deemed unjust or
inaccurate or untrue, the effect of its
protest would have been in accord with
the purpose of accomplishing the ends
of justice, and indicative of the natural
desIre of the present board to correct
any abuses or irregularities committed
or practiced under the administration
of its predecessor; but the board goes
far beyond such laudable purpose in as-
suming. inferentially, as the represent-
aive of the preSent aministraton, full
responsibility for the shortcomings of
the Jennings administration.
The fact should not be forgotten or
lost sight of that the joint committee

The trouble with the Jennings ad
ministration appears to be that thern
was no Taft to sit on the lid, Governoo
Broward having no taste for the job.
An editorial paragraph In last week'i
issue referred to an article which was
at the last moment, crowded out foi
lack of space. It will be found in this
issue ,

It is stated that South Carolina has
gone into the immigration business on
her own account. A commissioner has
been sent to Europe to obtain immi-
grants to settle and cultivate a 5,000,-
000 acre tract of land. The outcome of
this experiment will be watched with
keen Interest by all the southern States,
as the success of it will likely cause
other States to follow the plan.
"There is no greater Incentive to
honesty in public office than publicity of

The True Democrat has set for itself
to provide the widest possible publicity

already received encourages it to

dertaken. .
A dramatic incident occurred at the
funeral of the late Gen. Fitahugh Lee,
which demonstrates the fact that the
men who fought the battles in the civil
war are the first to "get together."
Among the escort of civilians were sev-
eral old Confederate veterans wearing
the uniform in which the dead general
won his fame as a soldier. These of-
ficers wore on their collars the insignia
that in the Confederate service indicat-
ed the rank of captain. Immediately,
in accordance with the military training
which requires a junior officer to dis-
mount before addressing his superior,
j Lieutenant U11. 8. Grant, who was act-
ing as adjutant, sprang from his horse,
and, on foot, assigned lee's oki com-
rades to position.
A deal involving $1,M10,000 and 198,-

Brunswick. Ga., last week. The pur-
chasers are a syndicate of Chicago and
St. Louis capitalists The closing of
this deal means the building of a rail-
road to Apalachicola, Fla.. from St.
Joseph, a distance of forty miles. The
road will then extend northward one
hundred miles to Quincy, and it is un-
deratood that It will then head for At-
lanta. The purchase also means the
settlement and huiMing of a city at

it thoroughly. A visit was also made

Qcaker City Chief Executivc Again
Oasts Two Offictals.


Row Over Leasing of Philadelphia City
Gas Plant Reaches an Interesting
But Acute Climax.

At Philadelphia Thursday Mayor
Weaver took forcible possession of
the offices of director of public safe-
ty and director of public works.
Neither Director Smyth nor Direc-
tdr Ccstello offerc-' scrlous resistance.
Four detectives are now on guard at
the offices.

Accompanied by hbR counsel and
four detectives, Mayor Weaver went
to the offl-ce of Director of Public
Safety Smyth. He informed that of-
ficial that he had been dismissed
and that his presence in the office
was a trespass. Director Smyth with-

The m'afor placed two detectives in

where the samo ceremony was re-
Mr. Cobtello also quit his office and
detectives were placed in charge.
Rumor was current that the repub-

impeach M.ayor Weaver. With this
end in view, it is said, a special meet-

for the purpose. Malfeasance In of-
fice is the ground upon which the
Impeachment proceedings will be

before Judge Ralston In the court of
common pleas to restrain the mayor
from removing from office Directors
Smyth and Lostello. The writ re-
moves the injunction granted Wednes-
day and allows the directors to re-
sume their duties.
Acting on the writ of supercedeas,
the new directors at once assumed
charge of their offices.
In the meantime the supreme court
Investigates the matter.
A dramatic Incident of the day was
the ovation given Mayor Weaver by
several thousand persons on his way
from the city hall to the Union

by those opposed to the lease as an
indication of the trend of popular

Strikers Become Obstrepeo Again

Their Rvolvers
Rioting broke out afresh 'riday In
the strike at Chicago, and although no
body was seriously hurt, there wore
a number of vicious fights in th..
lumber district, during which the po
lice were compelled to use their clubs,
and in on-) instance revolvers, in or-
der to disperse the mobs.
The worst fight in the lumber dis-
trict occurred at Twenty-second street
and Ashland avenue, where a crowd
of men and boys had all through the
morning hurled stones and clubs at
c very pasb.'ng lumber wagon. Finally,
a wagon, on which Police Officer Ba-
genski was a passenger, came a:ong,
and the mob greeted it with the usual
volley of stones. They also threaten-
ed to attack the driver, and the sit-
uation was so serious that the otflter,
drawing his revolver, fired six shots
at the crowd, which broke and fled
in wild confusion. 'None of the bul-
\c:s hit anybody.
Dl)irng the e ending general rioting
was r,revalcnt throlighout the ltini)er

At Archer avenue and Loom!s street
two trucks appeared with one police-
man on each. The trucks were im-
mediately bombarded with bricks and
stones, and scores of air rifles werei
brought into play. A bullet from one
of these weapons seriously wounded
Policeman James Fitzpatrick in the
right hand. The two policemen drew
their revolvers fired over the
heads of the rioters, holding them at
bay until the drivers managed to
reach their destination.
The strike spread during the day
in a mail degree throughout the
building trades. There were a num-
ber of Instances where woodworkers
refused to recele the material de-
livered by non-union teamsters and
walked out. This move In many In-
stances was made by the men Indl-
viduia]y. There was no official ac-
lion taken by any of the material

trades unions looking to active svmn-
paithetic support of the teamsters'
strike. Several of the labor leaders
in the ranks of the material trade
d-,clared that there is no prospect. in
t'eir opinion, of any complete tie-up
of th" building tradeR by a strike of
the men. There Is no movement 3on
foo. at present looking toward a set-
tlement of the strike. Mayor punn,
talked as though he had abandoned
hope of a settlement.

Secretary of War Makes Significant
Batqqet Speech Anent Canal Af-
fairs and the Railroads.

The celebration of the twenty-fifth
anniversary of the Cincinnati Comn
mercal Club closed In that city Fri-
day night with a notable banquet,
where the speakers discussed vital
questions of the day. The cities which
were represented at the banquet were
Boston. Chicago, St. Louis and Cincin-
nati. Secretary of War Taft made
the principal speech of the evening.
The secretary said In part:
"If the Panama canal were inside
the territory of the United States, of
course all the material used on the
canal could pay duty or be bought
in the United States, but as the con-
structlon of the canal is a number
of days' journey from the tariff wait
of the United Otates, it presents ex-
actly the same as is presented In the
case of the Philippine Islands. Now.
if congress wants to pay more. than
France was willing to pay, then they
are welcome to do so, but in the ab-
sence of a rule we feel we must carry
out the rule that app~ls. that rule
requires that the lpri(cs and quality
being the same. we must buy Anier-
ican goods. In the absence of a rule,
we feel bound by our trust to luild
as cheaply as posiblA. \\'e su bn.tteel
the question to (on:ir*ess on this line,
asking congress to lay down a rule.
If there is no rule, we m'nist iuilnd as
a btis iiess nian would. Now, there
Is no ques'lon of protection or tree

"I cannot but thinK." he sail,. "the
diso u:ilon which Is tnow i going on has
Ead a niuch wider scope thatn is nec-
(e sary. The question is the passage
of certain leg!slaflon and the discuts-
sion Is properly narrowed by consid-
eration of what that legis'htIon is.'
He explained the present statute on
inter-state commerce, calling attention
to its references to "unreoaonable"
rates, and the position of the Inter-
state commerce commission on that
matter. He stated that the measure
proposed Is a very moderate measure,
and it is unfair to denounce it so se.
verely as had been done.
He beo.,eI the cnanoes propose,

rates. Further, he held that it would
greatly rlilove the cour:H to provide
a court to consider railroad rates.
Rebates were a matter that should
be preranrer for, even though he had
been Informed there were no longer
any such things as reniteos. He In-
sisted that the railroads should not
antagonIze, but that they owe-I some-
thing to the government to see tnat
conditions of prosperity continued.

An Interesting Relic.
One of the most interesting relies
of old literature Is a volume bearing
the date, 1796, and containing copies
of the original official letters writ-
ten by General George Washington
during his command of the Contin.
ental forces of the Revolutionary
War. This volume was brought to
light by George W. Stevens, of Au-
gustas, while looking over some old
letters and papers which occupied
one corner of an attic. No reading
matter is extant which will give one
an understanding of the private life
of Washington and an appreciation of
the emotions and hiard ships which
were begotten in the throes of the
birth of Freedom. The'e letters are
copies of the letters which had been
preserved in the office of the secro.
tary of state at Philadelphia, and Mr.
Stevens shows the volume with a
great deal of satisfaction.-

the establishment of a university foi
the southern church, at Atlanta, Geor
gla, was voted down during the day
The principal feature of the morn
Ing session was a discussion of the
project of establishing a university
for the entire southern church at At
The theory of those who opposed
adopting the favorable report of the
committee was that such an instltu
tion should have more than $1,000,000
to start on, and that if there is t
be a school for higher education, thai
one of the existing schools should be
chosen rather than build a new one
The question wasa nallxsettled by
an amend meat being offered to the
effect that the general assembly does
not see Its way clear to undertake
sucb an enterprise, but, at the same
time, apprectatea the work of those
who have been pushing the question
and wishes them uccess in their un

carry it on independent of the general

* Dr. Robert EIIld Tbesmpsoa, of
Philadelphia. has a visfon, It we may
apply such a word to the well ponder-,
ed plan of a distlanulsh4ed man of
science. Woman, the home maker
and mother, should not be hampered
by household drudgery. Cooking is a
matter of chemistry, and will be done
by men. All the tedious choes of
housework, washing, dish washing,
scrubbing. Ironing, sweeping, bouse-
cleaning-Oh, word of horror to the
ears of manI-will be done by public
boumework concerns. Hov e will be
heated from a central plant and swept
by hydraulic brooms. Meals will
come from the grand central cookery
or Its nearest branch. Stairs will he
supplanted by automatic elevators.
Washing day will disappear from the
week. Even now many women send
a telephone call for window cleaners
and have tneir husbands' "socks"
darned by specialists. In the cities
you have your clocks wound and your
lamps trimmed and tended by outside
experts. In the Norwegila town of
Bergen everybody's food comes from
the town kitchen. In Paris the work-
man gets his hot soup from the grand
central dinner kettle. Happy day, If
it ever comes, when women have no
servants and no household drudgery
to earn wrinkles byl We do not un-
derstand, however, Just how a woman
whose husband "gets ten per" is go-
ing to have that automatic elevator.
Do the city, the town, the State pay
for all these 'p ivate utilities," made
"public utilities?" Rica women
escape drudgery now. How are the
poor women to do it?"

A Revised Fable.
A dscrouratoed ant watched a man
whe was trying to wheul a heavy load
up hill.
luph loubi wam far beyond his
strength apparently, but he pushed
and latborel until be had nearly
reacted the top.
TITen. as le paused to rest, the load
escapMe, rolled rapidly t' the bottom
and spilled out Into the mud.
The man placed his. hands upon his
hips and swore what Is popularly
known as a "blue streak."
'"That seems a good, easy scheme
for one In trouble." said the insect.
'I will try IL"
But the ant speedily found himself
z the bug lockup.
Moral: While man may consider
ihe ant with exceeding benefit, it does
slot necessarily follow that the ant
may proatabtly Imitate man.

When the oeruel4& report on sioe
business methods of the packers ap-

of publicity it is significant that those
who attempted to discredit it have
failed to controvert the figures con-

many people are now asking why the
facts and flnures are not furnished to
contradict thelm..
The truth seems to be that most of
the chinrges contain nanfounded sensa-

of this appeared In a recent article In
an Eastern nmagnzlne. to the effect that
"forty Iowa banks were forced to close
their doors in 1003-t ly the Beef

Chief Clerk (;ox. of the banking de.
