Returns from different parts of the
Commonwealth indicate that the major
ity vote of the State is in favor of license ;
therefore, certain liquor men have elready
become earnest advocates of the repeal
of the Local Option law by the Legisla
ture. Such advocates never .kuew, or
have forgotten, that the Local Option
law was made to meet the probability of
the State as a whole, or majority, going
in favor of license. If the State as a
whole, or a majority, regardless of the
opinions in different parts of the State,
for or against license, had voted on last
Friday, it would not have been local op
tion : that would have been a vote by
the Stale. The very letter and spirit of
the law under which we voted last Fri
day, was that the respective counties
of this State should choose, each
for itself, for or against license. The
question was not, if the majority of the
people of the State declare in favor of
license, local'option shall be repealed.
The question was, if Lancaster or any
other couuly declare by a majority of
its voters at the polls in favor of license
said county t-hall have, license for the
period of three years. If Juniata coun
ty, or any other county, declare by a
majority of its voters at the polls
against license, said county shall have no
license for the period of three years.

A despatch from New York, under
date of the 21st says : This morniug wit
nessed the finale of the dark drama which
began nearly two years ago with the
killing of Avery D Putnam", in a Broad
way car, by Wm. Foster Everything
possible had been doneUo avert this dis
grace from failing ou bis innocent wife
and faitiily ; but the Executive saw fit
to withhold his clemency, aad the offi
cers of the law were compelled to exe
cute, their sad duty. ..The circumstances
of the crime for which Foster suffered
the extreme penalty of the law ere brief
ly as follows :
the story of tiik crime.
On the morning of Friday, April 29,
1S71, New York learned tha one of her
! citizens, Avery 1). 1 utnam by name,
had been cruelly murdered the previous
evening while attempting to protect two
ladies from the insults of a drunken ruf
fian. Mr. Putnam, before he died, made
an ante-mortem statement, in which he
narrated the circumstances of the aasult
and recognized William Foster as the
person who committed the cowardly at
tack upon him. The facts of the case,
as published at the time, where as fol
lows : At eleven o'clock on Wednesday
night, Mr. Putnam, a merchant doing
business at No. G8 Pearl street, and re
siding at No. 3 College Place, accompan
ied by Mme. Duval, a modiste of No.
7C2 Broadway, and her daughter, enter
ed car No. 49 of the Broadway and
Seventh-avenue line, to ride up town.
Mr. Putnam and the ladies took seats in
the forward part of the car, and at Six
teenth street Foster, an cx conductor of
the road, got on the front platform lie
then stared persistently at Miss Duval,
and, as sne paid no attention to bis
grimaces, he pushed open the front door
and looked directly rt her. Mr. Putnam
on seeiug Foster thus insult the young
lady, rose from his seat and closed the
door. This incensed Foster aud he open
ed the door again, which was immediate
ly closed by Mr. Putnam.
When the car reached Thirtieth street
Foster came iuside and remarking that
he had paid his fare and was entitled to
a seat, sat down close beside Miss Duval,
He then behaved in a brutish manner,
and made a noise with hia lips which in
duced the young lady to change her
seat. Mr. Putnam then interfered, and
said although Foster was entitled to a
seat in the car,yet he would not suffer
the ladies iu his charge to be insulted.
At Forty-sixth street tho car was stopp
ed aud Mr. Putnam alighted, leaving the
car hjr the front platform. As he was
assisting the ladies to alight Fester went
out aud stood upon the front platform.
He had previously said that he would
give Mr. Putnam "hell," aud seizing the"
car-hook proceeded to execute his threat.
Striking Mr Putnam on the head with it
be fractursd his skull, and inflicted
wounds from the effects of which. Mr.
Putnam died the next day at St. Luke's
Hospital. Foster was arrested, tried,
convicted, aud sentenced. Subsequently
the Court of Appeals affirmed the seu
tence and Foster . was accordingly exe

An exchange says : Going to law to
recover a debt, or a character, or any
thing else, for that matter, is not a very
paying occupation except for the law
yers. To illustrate: In Yew Nork late
ly a share in the Glenbam Hotel was
sold to a Mr. Peters for 93,415 04. A
judgment creditor of the seller,- whose
judgment amounted to $2,954, attached
the proceeds. Did he make the debt ?
Not much. Why ? Thus it was :
A receiver was appointed, who held
the fund about three months, and out of
it, 'by order of the court," he made sun
dry disbursements. To himself, as "re
ceiver and manager," he paid SI, 900 ; to
his "counsel," $1,900 ; and to his ' at
torney SI. 46a; to the "counsel for
Peters, who 1i ogbt the share, $950;
and to Peters' attorney, t2C5 ; to another
individual, who figures as an "attorney,"
225 more; and yet to another, who
figures as "superintendent," SoOO ; and
finally he paid the Collector of Internal
Revenue. $S16. All these sums uieburs
ed aggregated $7,984, so that when the
disbursing process was done, there re
mained S431 04 for the creditor, who had
originally attached a fund nearly twenty
times this Rmount, provided he could
overthrow a claim that another party put
in for "wages" somewhat in excess of

account of the process of fattening a
young woman for a Inuis market. As

or divorced one, their anklets are set for

aud took it with her to the seminary.
During the session she passed it about to
her young companions, and, in conse
