Harrisburg, April 17 (AP).—Governor Earle today put the machinery into motion for snapping the two months deadlock which has snarled the legislature over means for increasing state income in the next two years.
He called a conference of democratic and republican leaders to discuss conflicting plans of raising new-revenues after June I and to attempt to reconcile diverging estimates of the amounts necessary.
These were the basis from which each side started;
Democrats—that $203,000,000 is needed and that it should be raised through a series of 22 new measures, including a number of new’ taxes.
Republicans- That only $111,500.-000 is needed, and that only nine new measures are needed, including several newr taxes.
Governor Earle called the first compromise conference for 2:30 o'clock this afternoon. Six republicans and six democrats were invited ; from each of the two houses.
Representative Miles Horst, Lebanon, republican, sponsor of the resolution to investigate the state relief system, was named chairman of the investigating committee at an organization meeting today.
The senate passed and sent to the ! house a bill to appropriate $10,000 for the inquiry.

Harrisburg, April 17 (AP*.—Counsel for Robert Allen Edwards today curried to the state bourd of pur-dons their fight to save the youthful "American tragedy” slayer from the electric chair.
Edwards, convicted of slaying Freda McKechnie. Is under sentence to die the week of May 6.
Today, Praise McGuigan, told the board Freda’s death was accidental and that Edwards, driven frantic by the tragedy, did not know what he j was doing when he struck her with a blackjack.
Nine of the jurors w’ho recommended the death penalty for Ed- j wards signed a statement to the pardon board saying they will "have | no objection if the board of pardons determines the penalty wits too severe aud commutes the sentence."
Attorney General Murgiotti said Edwards’ love letters to Margaret Crain, East Aurora, New York, music teacher, showed motive for the slaying, but added "they also give evidence of a deranged mind.” Edwards’ counsel asked medical men to study testimony taken in the trial. The boy’s parents and the 1 father of the slain girl w’ere in the hearing room.
It was brought out Edwards made a statement a few' days after he was first questioned by police, and Marglotti said, "He admitted he intended to kill this girl because she was an expectant mother. He hit her over the head with a blackjack. That sounds more natural, doesn't it?"
“I wouldn’t say so," replied McGuigan. "I have faith in the defendant’s story,"

Harpooning of Fish
Paris, (AP).—Harpooning of fish in the Seine river has been forbid- j den by Paris police.
To the thosan'ds of patient fish-1 ermen who daily line the banks of the historic stream, the law means; I little. Fish caught in or near the | city seldom are more than three or four inches in length, too small to harpoon.
One fisherman, whose velvet-collared coat was topped by a derby,; expressed: the belief that the decree was issued to save work for po-1 \ lice. Ambitious harpooners, he I said, sometimes fall in the river,; ; necessitating hurry calls for the I 1 rescue squad.
