Controversy in Pa. Assembly Over Distribution of the Money
Pinchot Bill to Propose (asb Be Turned Into T reasury
HARRISBURG, Pa., March 27-Distribution of money to be received from taxing beer in Pennsylvania created a new controversy today within the State Legislature.
Present beer control legislation provides that license and production tax moneys be distributed on a pro rata basis among the State, the counties, and the municipalities.
A new beer bill, drafted by Governor Pinchot’s administrative advisers, is expected to propose that all license and tax revenue be turned into the State treasury. Leaders would use this money for unemployment relief
A race for legislative enactment may develop between the rival plans when the General Assembly meets tonight to begin its twelfth week.
The special House committee on the beer subject is said to be ready to report one of the four Conner-Sowers bills immediately. Meantime the same committee may get control of the new' bill, which is to be pr. -sented early this week. Proponents of the so-called administration measure want the ways and means committee to handle it.
The legislative proposals now being prepared are said to be far more liberal than the Conner-Sowers bills which would restrict to a great degree the retail distribution of beer. The new plan would permit retail sales by practically all food dispensing enterprises.
While the problem of providing some state system of controlling beer sales and of deriving some revenue from them after April 7 was mast widely discussed, questions of relief, economy, teachers’ salary cuts, and Sunday baseball also held attention.
The House will vote tonight at 9.30 o’clock on the final passage of the Talbot $2,000,000 relief appropriation. The money is intended for April and May needs, to provide a stop gap until the major relief program can be enacted. Plans called for passage of the measure by both Houses before the end of the week.
At ll p. rn., final action will be considered on six bills amending the state school code to permit teachers’ salary reductions, to lower state subsidies to school districts, and to permit consolidations of smaller districts. Savings to the state alone through adoption of the bills would aggregate $5,-000,000.

W ASHING TON, March 27—The first trickle of the stream of gold which sponsors of legalized beer predicted was reported in industries in various parts of the country and by the Federal Treasury itself.
The Government expects millions of dollars in tax revenue even before sale begins April 7. and representatives of the lumber, bottling and other industries reported revived activity.
A close adviser to President Roosevelt, who declined to permit use of his name, described the developments in this manner.
“We have been on a dead center for months economically. It is too early to judge definitely, for, after all. the money that will flow in the beer trade is but a small fraction of our national spending, but it may be the factor necessary to start business up anew.”
Dr. Wilson Compton, manager of the National Lumber Manufacturers’ Assoc.ation. reported that box lumber demand, both for softwoods and hardwoods, has increased appreciably in the midwest, due partly to demand for beer cases. Tank stock also was said to be in demand for brewery purposes.
Dr. Compton said “for the first time this year, board feet lumber

CHAPLAIN Pl ICH AMONG THE GUESTS
A mistake made in selecting a section of pipe that lie was ordered to clean cost the life of Isador Lenard, 45, of 317 Townsend street, and endangered the life of another workman, Lorenzo Zcch, of Hayes street, yesterday.
The accident occurred In the plant of the Stauffer Chemical Company, at Trainer, about IO o’clock yesterday morning.
The two men had been ordered to clean a pipe that was not in use, and evidently not noticing they were working on the wrong pipe, proceeded to follow instructions.
They had just finished the cleaning process when the fumes carried through the pipe to a condenser operation b gan permeating through the pipe-room.
So intense were the fumes that only a moment or so had elapsed before both men were lying unconscious, and so fast was the lethal action of the gas that, although both were discovered within a few moments after the accident, Lenard died shortly after his admission at the Chester Hospital. Physicians did succeed in reviving Zerh, however, and he is now a patient in that institution under observation.
Officials of the plant said that it was the prompt action of employes in other parts of the plant investigating the flow of the fumes that was responsible for the short time in which the two stricken workmen were removed from the gas-fillrd chamber
