A Decision in Their Pavor "by a Penn
Pittsburg, Pa., June 13. A profound
sensation was created in this portion of the
state this afternoon by the decision of an
Armstrong count- judge in an original
package case. Some days ago Charles Sil
ennan, a resident of Alleghany county,
opened an original package store in Leech
burg, a local prohibition town in Arm
strong county, which is also prohibition.
Silverman claimed to bo acting as an agent
under power of attorney of the
Cincinnati Brewing company, of Ham
ilton, O. He made his sales
and was promptly arrested and placed on
trial before Judge MavburnatKittanuing,
the county seat of Armstrong county.
The temperance people were up in arms
and pushed the prosecution strongly,
claiming that Silverman was violating the
laws by selling liquor without a license;
also that he had sold to minors and to
men of known intemperate habits.
Silverman, who was backed in his
defense by the brewing company, ad
mitted that ho had sold beer in
kegs, half barrels and barrels, but denied
and proved that ho had not sold to minors
and claiming he not knowingly sold to
men of intemperate habit.s. The defense
also claimed he had not violate any liquor
l.iws by selling thee original packages
and proved them to have been unbroken
and to have been duly sealed and stomped
as required by the United States laws;
that there could be no conviction in his
case, as under the constitution
and laws of the United Suites
relating to commerce between states, he
was fully protected in celling original
packages, shipped from Ohio to Pennsyl
vania. Judge Rnyburn, on his chargo, refused
to consider the evidence of the prosecu
tion in regard to the local prohibitory law
mid affirmed those relating to the United
States interstate commerce law. Ho
baid it was a mere question of fact
for the jury to learn whether the
packages -were the identical aud
unbroken cases shipped from Hamilton,
()., to Silverman. It the jury were satis
fied, the judge's charge continued, that
these were the original packages, that Sil
' c rman had a right to make the sale ac
cording to a recent decision of the supreme
court and did not violate the Pennsylvania
liquor law in selling without a license;
but if found guiltyo selling to minors
and intemperate men" ho would come
under a clau.se of the penal laws
prohibiting sucii sale, for while the state
might not prohibit the sale of original
packages, it could protect its citizen.-, and
the minors aud intemperate clause came
nearly within the police regulation of the
htate. This charge was most unexpected,
to the prosecution, and the hundreds in
terested who thronged the court room.
The jury remained" out about two hours
end a half, and acquitted Sihennan of the
barge of selling v it hout a license and to
minors, but found him guilty of selling to
persons of known intemperrate habits.
Silverman is overjoyed while the liquor
people, who have been in a hopeless minor
ity in Armstrong county, are jubilant.
Silverman says original packages can now
ilood every town in the state and the high
n onse paid by local dealers is. practically
money thrown away.
Tlie decision it. believed to be the first
jendered in a high liccn&e state and the
outcome is awaited with interest alike by
ihe temperance and liquor people.

CINCINNATI'S RICHEST MAN.
David Sinton's Great Wealth and lloxr
Ho Acquiroil It.
Cixcixxati, June 3 It is not always
that the wealthiest citizen of a place is also
among her greatest benefactors, but this is
true of Cincinnati. Mr. David Sinton,
whose fortune is conservatively estimated
to exceed ten millions, is undoubtedly our
richest individual citizen, his wealth being
possibly exceeded by thut of one estata A
distinguishing feature of Mr. Sinton's
wealth is that it is not inherited, but ac
cumulated by his own diligence and keen
business tact. Ho was born a poor boy in
Ireland and came to this country with his
parents in 1811, when 3 years old.
His childhood was spent "at West Union,
O. He took advantages of such opportuni
ties as there were in those days to secure
an education, but the circumstances of his
life obliged him to take upon himself at an
early ago the task of making his own liv
ing. At the age of 13 ho left school and
took a position in a store at Jacktown, and
subsequently at Washington Court House.
Soon afterward ho became manager of an
iron furnace at Hanging Rock, O., and
later secured an interest in the firm. This
was tho key by which he unlocked the
treasure house of riches. Then came the
war and its rich opportunities for keen
business men. At the very height of the
iron boom Mr. Sinton sold his interest in
tho business and invested the proceeds in
Cincinnati properties that have grown and
multiplied according to the prosperity of
the city. He has never been a speculator,
but has been a shrewd investor, a vigilant
watcher and a patient waiter. Since sell
ing out his interest in tho iron furnace ho
hasdovoied himself to a personal super
vision of thee investments, and the re
turns have been enormous.
In personal appearance ho is a nodel of
physical health and vigorous manhood.
Though now Si years old he is in posses
sion of every faculty, and is as careful a
financier as ever. He is not known ever to
have worn a heard, and his clean shaven
face prasants in full relief the sharp lines
of character graven there. The accom
panying picture is from Noble's oil painting
in the Cincinnati Art museum, the most
recent picture of the venerable man, and
copied for tho first timo by special permis
sion. He is a free and liberal giver to the causes
of religion, charity and education. One of
his favorite enterprises is tho Union Bethel,
a mission church and Sunday school on
the public landing, to which he has given
about 3150,000. Ho has also given $00,000
to the Cincinnati Y. M. C. A., and his re
cent gift of $25,000 completo.-- tho $100,000
fund for the oroction of the now building
upon which work has recently been begun.
To the Art school he has given $100,000, and
has assisted it with minor donations. To
his admiration of physical strength and his
appreciation of the necessity of a proper
place for training the city is indebted for
her splendid gymnasium.

Some Tolnts About liriti.sh Women.
The chief ana and end of woman, accord
ing to British belief, is to get married.
Marry well, if you can, but at all events,
marry. The married sisters of a family
always look down on the others and moth
ers and daughters lay biege in the most
barefaced manner to every 'eligible" of
their acquaintance. The married women
are tha belles in society because, as the
men frankly avow, "if a fellow is more
than decently civil to a girl her father or
somebody is certain to ask bis intentions,
when he hasn't any, you know." Breach
of promise suits are not uncommon among
respectable people, and very small caue is

Proposed Testimonial to France.
The National Society of tho Sons of tho
American Revolution is engaged in raising
a fund by dollar subscriptions for tho pur
chase of a suitable testimonial to be sent
from the United States to France. Says
one of the promoters of the project:
Tho success which Lafayette helped win oa
this continent led to the i evolution in France.
Through storm and terror's and strife; after many
fluctuations and tunvilts; after constant changes
in the form of government; from republic to em
pire; empire to monarchy, monarchy to repub
lic; and back again, through the round of em
pire and resolution, another republic has risen in
France, solider, firmer, juster and more peaceful
than any that ever got foothold there before.
President Harrison was among the first
to forward a dollar for the fund. Money
and suggestions for tho best form of a tes

the committee. Dr. William Seward Webb,

A Graded Valuation for "Wives.
Wives have a graded valuation. That is
established by a recent opinion rendered
by the Virginia court of appeals in a suit
for damages brought by a man whosa wife
had been accidentally killed through tho
negligence of the defendants. The latter
objected to proof as to the character of the
dead woman. The court says:
If the character and conduct of tho wife be
such that her death will cause but little sorrow,
suffering, and mental anguish to the husband,
then the fair and just proportion of the damages
to be awarded by tho jury will be measured ac
cordingly. But if on the contrary the wife be
loving, tender and dutiful to her husband; thrifty,
industrious, economical and prudent as the evi
dence in this case proved Sirs. McCcnnell to be
then her price is far above rubies, and the loss of
such a wife, of such a helpmeet, of such influ
ence, of such a blessed and potent ministry and

Was the "Needy One Remembered?
One day not long ago the Prince of
Wales, on alighting from his carriage at
the door of a house where he was about to
pay a visit, saw a blind beggar trying to
cross the crowded thoroughfare. Tha
prince took the man's arm and aided him
to make the trip. Shortly afterward a mas
sive silver ink stand reached Marlborough
house, inscribed: "To the Prince of Wales.
From one who saw him conduct a blind
beggar across the street. In memory of a
kind and Christian action." As the name
of the donor is not known it is impossible
to say whether or not the sightless mendi
cant benefited by the incident further than
to receive the assistance of his prince to the
opposite walk. It is charitable to pi esume,
however, that the man who paid 100 for
the ink stand found an odd sixpence in his
pocket for the beggar.

against the "hopper" as they have in the
past against the Turk they will improve de
