Trenton Times, The (Newspaper) - February 1, 1890, Trenton, New Jersey VOU Vi H. NO. TBKNTON, SATURDAY AFTKKNOON, FKBBUABY 1, 1890, TWO CHICAGO'S SIOCK RISES. The Senate Fair Bill Killed in the Assembly. NEW YOKK'S CHANCES WANING. The Amembly la the Next Hope, but No Action Will lie Tuken on It Until Next View ol the Situation. ALBANY, Feb. world's fair bill carno up in the assembly again yesterday. The fight of tho day begau when the confer- ence committee, through Assemblyman Acker, made their report in the assembly. It was to the effect that the senate part of the committee had consented to recede from its amendment BO far as to take out five of the names had put into the bill. Thege were: Louis F. Payu, Republican, of Colum- bia county; Ellis H. Roberts, Republican, of county; A. B. Boardman, Repub- lican, of Richmond county; Erastus Corn- itigy Democrat, of Albany couuty, and James Ward, Republican, of Westchester county. Tho alleged reason for asking that these names be stricken out was that the gentle- men are not residents of New York city. The Democratic members of the conference committee, Senator Coulter nnd Assembly- men Sheehan and Blumenthal, presented a minority report, rejecting the whole of the senate amendment Speakea Husted's Plea. Mr. Acker moved that the majority report be accepted and agreed to. Before putting the question Speaker Husted explained the question, that a vote to ngree with the re- port of the conference committee would be a vote for the World's fair bill. He further ruled in advance, but on a request for in- formation, that if this report should be re- jected no further conference could be had on the bill, and it would be dead so far as the assembly was concerned. This position he reiterated when he left the chair, and, going on the floor, made an eloquent plea for the conference report. He said that if this report was rejected all World's fair legislation was at an end, unless the senate j8houid._Bgr_3e to-the assembly- bill f.hst .hoH boon sent to it without amending it. The Committee's Report Defeated. With this clear presentation of the tion the roll call was proceeded with. Mr. Fish defended his vote by claiming that commission as originally made up was in partisan, and that politics was iujected iu.i. the measure by adding the new mes. Four- teen Republicans voted with the Democrats, and the conference committee's report was rejected by a vote of 47 to 63. What the Killed Measure was. The bill thus killed was the senate bill adding some commissioners to those named in the bill as it came from the World's fair committee that was thus rejected, by the as- sembly. But the assembly bill is still before "the senate, and before Tuesday next conies it is hoped the Republicans of both tbe senate and the assembly will reach an nirreeineut on the bill and then will pass it. In the Senate. When the assembly's action was reported to the upper house Senator Cantor moved to take up the original assembly World's fair bill, which had been lying on the senate's desk all this time. advantage is there thf said Fassett. "If you pasi it as it came here it can go to the governor this afternoon." "That will never replied Fassett in his most sarcastic tone. The motion to take up the bill was lost. The assembly's action is iaid to have very largely decreased New York's chances of getting the fair, and Chauucey M. Depew is of the opinion that "Chicago stock has gone up 25 pel No action will probably be taken on the bill before Tuesday. The Congress Committee. WASHINGTON, Feb. 1. Senator Hiscock has returned to the capital. He says that the committee on the quadri-centennia] would be called together early next weeji, OuuuulUiTioh had been held among the members, and he did not know in what form the World'fLfair question would ba reported to the senate.

WILKESBAHRE, Pa., Feb. bottom if a portion of the town of Plains, about our miles from here, dropped out yester iay, and with it three single houses and a iouble block, causing consternation among he tenants and excitement in the town, 'or a week past premonitory signs of the ave-in have been noticed by experienced miners, and one of them made it his busi- ness to warn the inhabitants of those houses M keep low fires in their stoves and mate trepanations to take a drop down. They concerned themselves but little, cave-ins are of common occurrence in this and while the women of the house vere preparing their noonday meal the earth regan to settle and in a few moments the louses were almost standing on end. The ires in the stoves were quickly extinguished. The danger now lies in an extension of the cave-in, which is altogether probable from >resent indications. A few feet from the cave-in, and in a dt rect line with it, is the cemetery, and grave 'ears are entertained that this will yield to ;he pressure of the squeeze. The Catholic church and parsonage, which were wrecked a few weeks ago by a cave-in, are within a ihort distance of the scene. These cave-ins are caused by the extravagant robbing of >illars in the mines. The Laws Should Be Revised. AT.HANY, N.

Tho various changes in the since the ratification of the constitution of .546 are commented upon, and the fact forth that since the revised statutes were established, nearly twenty years after that event, the system of revision had boon brok- en by legislation upon new topics, amend- ments and supplements, causing confusion and uncertainty in the laws of the state which ought to be always clear and consist- ent. The many attempts at revision since have resulted only in the adoption of the civil, criminal and penal codes, while the most important statutes outside the code) aave multiplied with increasing confusion.
