A New Lancaster County Landlord.

hostess of the Kcnnett Square hotel, were
Riven a hurprise party en Thursday even
ing. Mr. and Mrs. Hershbergcr will move in
J a few days te Christiana. Lancaster coun
ty, where he will keep hotel and in order
te give them a pleasant time before they
move away about, one hundred and fifty
persons marched te their house and gave
them a complete surprise, in fact they
took possession of the house. After some
time in social chat, large tables were set
in the dining room and the entire party sat
down and partook of a well prepared meal?
After two hours around the festive beard
tlicsurpiiscrs withdrew te the parlor. The
dining-room was cleared when an orches
tra was brought in and a geed old fash
ioned dance took place. The event will
never be forgotten by these present.
Fancy Easter I-Kgs.
Abe Miller, the decorative artist of
Eater eggs, has pictured a nest of them
for Mr. R. J. McGrann's children, which
are among the choicest specimens of his
skill yet produced. One of them for Jehn
McGrann depicts a boy taking piano les les
eons from Prof. Matz : Miss Eleaner Mc
Grann's has a rcpiescntatien of a girl
reading a newspaper, another with a girl
washing a piece of china is for Miss Ilar
lictG. McGrann; Richard J. McGrann,
jr.'s, has a picture or the horse " Betty. "
Hugh McGiann" a pony and Grace Mc
Grann a baby. Each has engraved upon
it the name of the child for whom it is in
tended and the year of his or her birth.
RreUe a. "Wheel.
Last evening as the wagon of Messrs. "VY"
I). Spiecher ii, Sen, leaded with farming
implements, was being driven down East
Chestnut street, -nc of the hind wheels
broke just as it was turning into Duke.
The horse was held in check and thus
additional damage prevented.
A;:iiii Locked tup.
Themas Housten, a desperate character
in police circles, was before Alderman
IJarr this morning, and was locked up for
:,0 days for drunken ami disorderly con
duct. A Valuable ItoeK.
J. 15. I.ippineetl A. Ce.,of lMiiladclphia, have
just published a work of real value te every
one infiested in literature. We refer te "The
Header's Handbook," by Dr. 10. C. Krewer, the
tm'tiioret several similar books. In reviewing
the volume the Philnilelphia Bulletin says :
"This Mirpa-scs all that we have .seen in a
book efrelerence ler readers and writers, as it
combines the best finalities of the encycle-p:e-llas,
biographical dictionaries, and quota
tion books. Appended te it is a list el authors

'.1,517, anil a second appendix give the dates el
the poem", novels, ctc.,rclerrcd te in the book,
which isquileas thorough anil cemplet-.'. Al
together -The Header's Handbook' would be
cheap at any pi Ice. and it will take a place in
every well-ordered library, Hinaller large, that
belongs ten person tend et reading or occu

AN EVENT IN lHILADi:LlHIA.
About the Kith of Man-h. Messrs. St rawliridge
,t Clothier, the well known merchants at
Uighthand Maiket streets, I'lillailelpliia, Usu
ally have thi-ir opening et the labiics which,
during the season, are te be the things for
ladles; dresses. Te the-c openings, in increas
ing numbers, year by year, the ladies Heck
from i.irand near, sliewluir bv their presence
an amount of interest which is scarcely ever
excited by any ether spectacle.
This year, about the usual time, the firm an
nounced that the pressure lrem the ladies te
show the new goods had been se great, that for
weeks before, as they passed the Custom Heuse
day by day, they were .shown te the lavered
Knewing, however, that large numbers of
ladies in city anil country await their custom
ary announcement each season before doing
any -hopping, It uasstated that.altheugh thcy
had derided te have no lermal opening, they
would, about the iisii.il date, place the re
mainder of their.importatiens en sale, and in
augurate the business of the season.
The day en which the intermal opening was
announced, turned out te be intensely dis
agreeable with almost the only miew storm or
the season. One euhl have supposed that no
lady would have gene out of her house- unless
compelled te de se by inexorable necessity, or
drawn by some extraordinary attraction.
Ne mete striking instances of Messrs. Straw
bridge .X. Clothier's popularity has ever been
given than the fact that during this day et

te mercy v.i'ic read by Mr. Brewster from
William Me Mecr, president of the Phila
delphia bn.inl of trade, and J. B. Meyers,
president t the Philadelphia produce ex
change. Mr. Brewster said that while the
defendant were technically guilty of a vi
olation of tlu- law still they should be par
doned, sulMantially for the following
reason :" The offense was committed
through great excitement, incident te a
strong effort made te pass the riot bill.
They did net realize the full extent of a
vielatien of this law, as the act had never
been judicially defined. Such methods
will net hereafter obtain in the passage of
legislative acts. They are forbidden by
the conviction had in these cases
and the ends of justice arc there
fore fully obtained. Pennsylvania
ewes Wm. 11. Kemble a debt of gratitude
for services rendered in the past. He has
devised a system of linanee for the state
and of which she mav well be proud. In
his official position he has never failed te
de for the people well and honestly.
William 11. Armstong thought that the
defendants should be dealt with leniently
and judicial clemency should be exercised
in their behalf, for the state was
net clamoring for the bleed of
these men. They are entitled te the
benefit of a character which stands unim
paired, and while the weight of the offense
should net be lest sight of the people aie
willing te sec a sound clemency exercised
in these men's behalf.
District Attorney Hellinger, for the
commonwealth, said that the common
wealth delights net in the downfall of one
of her citizens. She is proud of
them and their record. But he who
violates the law must abide by the conse
quences. When a man is found guilty by
a jury of his peers he must receive and ac ac
cenfc the sentence of the law. That this
sentence may net be obstructed is
what the commonwealth asks for at this
time. She asks the beard net te arrest
the strong arm of the law. Mr. Hellinger
then read the pretest, of the common
wealth, which is substantially as fellows :
There is no doubt as te the guilt of these
mcn,and it would be but a mockery of jus
tice, after a pica of guilty had been put in,
te attempt te procure a pardon before the
judgment of the court has been pronounced.
Instead of these men having the geed of
the state at heart en the net bill, tliey
were, according te their own admissions,
attorneys for a railway corporation which
desired the passage of this bill,
and these men were resorting te
questionable means te procure it. Every
technical objection was taken advantage of
te delay a trial and it was understood that
when they pleaded guilty no obstruction
would be placed-in the way of the
law. Te pardon these men would be treat
ing the constitution and the law as se much
waste paper and would be con
doning an attempt te dispeil the
treasury of a large amount of
money. If a pardon is granted it must
be from personal motives and deference
