Judge Decide the Act to Protect Coal
Pittsburg, Nor. 80. Judge W. D. Porter
banded down a decision yesterday declar
ing unconstitutional the act of assembly of
June 1, 1883, which is entitled "An act
to protect miners in the bituminous coal
regions of the Common wealth." The third
section of tho act provides for punish
emnt of employers defraudlne miners by
false weight. Under this section I). P..
Bnrtzell was indicted and found guilty.
He was check-weighrnan at D. T. Bteen's
mine, where the weights were frandulent
D. T. Steen was convicted under the com
mon law and Judge Porter refused to Inter
fere in his case.
Hartzrll, however, was indicted undor
the special act mentioned. Ho was also
convicted, but appealed on the ground
that the act was unconstitutional because
its title did not clearly indicate its scope.
Judge Porter affirmed the point, saying:
"The act is entitled 'An act to protect
miners in the bituminous coat regions of
the Common wealth.' Does this give any
notice of the contents of the third sec
tion, providing penalties for taking more
pounds for a bushel or ton, or for weigh
ing with an incorrect scale? The business
to which the net relates is one which ex
poses the miners to dangers against which
it Is wise that they should be protected.
"The fraudulent use of false weights
for the purpose of cheating is a moral
wrong, indictable at common law, but the
title of the act In question cannot lie
said to give notice of special penalties to
be imposed when this offense Is committed
In weighing. The subject of an act of
assembly should be clearly expressed in

COURT HEAES THE CASE
Col. and Mrs. Fe-rrlno, Who Removed
the Children From Now Jersey,
Wero Present Difficulty ps to tho
rrocc-edliijiK lief occ Justice Ilugner
Therefore Decision WuHpostponeU.
The proceedings under the writ ot habeas
eorpuj issued yesterday against Col. and
Mra. L. Perrine, in behalf of Mrs. Mary
Kimball Slack. In a cult Instituted tor
recovery of the custody of tin; letter's two
children, were bad this morning before
J,isllee McConias. In circuit court No. 2,
and added another somewhat sensational
chupler to the celebrated litigation over
two wills and the attending collateral cir
cumstances. After full discussion by counsel, the pa
pers In the case hav Ing been previously con
sidered by the court, counsel tut Mrs. Slack
asked first that the proper return be made
to the writ, and that pending proceedings
In a concurrent court the mother be given
the custody of her children, requiring bond
in any sum deemed proper.
The interests of Mrs. i'errine were repre
sented in a suggestion that tbc children be
left where they are. with their guardians
under the will, under a rrnrshal's care if
need be, and that the expense otsucb sur
veillance would be promptly paid, it re
quired. Postponement was asked for only
until the proceedings lu Justice Uagners
court are concluded.
The decision of Ihe court was that pro
ceedings tinder the writ must be post
poned until December 4, or until further
order of court, pending the hearing in
Justice Hagner's court, und that the chil
dren shall remain in the custody of their
present guardian trader the will.
Justice McComas said he would receive
suggestions as to the proper safeguards
to prevent the removal ot the children rmn
this jurisdiction, and that such steps should
be taken as would Insure their appearance
when required by this court.
Mr. Carlisle, for Mrs. I'errine, said any
obligation imposed by cnun',l on the other
side would be promptly met. and it was
finally conceded that Mrs. Slack shall have
free access to the children between the
hours of 2 ard 4 o'clock each day, nnd
Judge Wilson's guarantee that they would

DREW A CROWD.
This case attracted to the courtroom
a considerable crowd, and among the
spectators was a number of well-known at
torneys who temporarily laid aside their
own affairs and dropped in to witness
A n Important insurance case, but, under
the circumstances, a wearisome one, was
firit called- The spectators impatiently
awaited Its conclusion.
Mr. Calderou Carlisle, who disclaimed
connection with the case as counsel, tint
addressed the court, stating that the defend
ants under the writ were then In the ofriec
ot Carlisle A Johnson, within the readi
of the court- He recited the particulars
lu all prior proceedings, and then said that.
in view of the action ot Justice Uagner, In
the probate court, lu Issuing a restraining
order, it was believed that iibedlenee to
the writ of one -ojrt might be construed as
disobedience of the other tribunal.
The consummation waanot reached with
out exhaustive discussion. Mr. CarlUle
was seconded by Judge Wilson, and these
gentlemen argued tLat the offer to guar
antee the presence of the children had
been prepared prior to the service of
the writ, and had been in court since yes
In response to the query ot the court,
Mr. Carlisle stated that there was not the
slightest probability that thcchUdren would
be removed from the court's custody. He
said that application for instructions un
der the two orders had been nskedofChlef
Justice Bingham, but bis honor had de
clined to lnttrpore. upon the grounds that
the onler or Justice Hagner was slill pend
ing and the cause thereunder not yel de
termined. r.ETCRN SHOULD BEMADE.
Attorneys Hamilton and Worthliigton
represented Mrs. Black, each In a leigtby
address. In whlcb the contention was made
that a return should be made to the writ,
a part or the requirement hclng to show
cause why they still ho!d the children in
violation of on order of a New Jersey court.
Neither Mr. nor Mrs. Perrine is in this
court, nor have tbey produced the children
here, Mr. Hamilton stated.
They should no w beheld to be in contempt
and served with a writ of attachment.
The court interposed at t bis point with the
statement that the parties were all In the
chamber adjoining the courtroom, and
were, to all Intents and purposes, under the
Mrs. Slack sought and obtained an order
In a New Jersey court. Mr. Hamilton de
clared, requiring the custodians to show
cause, and that In violation ot a known
order tuey fled from their homes and came
here as fugitives to Impede the course of
Mr. Worlhlngton follnr-ed the same line
of argument. Asked by the court If he be
lieved there was any danger that the chil
dren would be removed from this Juris
diction. Mr. Worthlngton said, in quota
tion: " 'The only lamp to my feet is the
lightof experience. These custodians have
fled from one court, and it they choose they
may at any time escape from this Juris
diction, and this mother, the natural pro
tector of her own offspring, may be next
compelled to seek them In California."
Mr. Wortlungton added to his former
declaration that Mrs. Black is unwilling
to trust to theintegrityor the Perrine-s. and
that she expected the court to determine
her claim to custody.
