Hg Sustains the Demurrer to the In?
dictment of Terry and Jamison,
A MOTION FOB THE DISCHARGE
OP THE ACCUSED WAS MADE
BY THEIR ATTORNEYS, OUT WAS
RESISTED BY COMMONWEALTH'S
ATTORNEY LYLE AND THE
COURT GRAFTED A POSTPONE?
MENT UNTIL MONDAY.
Judge .Ino. w. Woods, of tbe hustings
court, rendered his decision yesterday
morning on the demurrer to the indict
ment in the case <>f the comm>nwealth
v.-. S. W. Jamison ami I*. L. Terry as
After giving to the demurrer entered
in this prosecution that serious consider?
ation which tho gravity of the case dc
mands: after having listened attentively
to exhaustive arguments both for and
against it, and consulting all the author
it ies at niy disposal calculated to throw
light upon the question, I am firmly con?
vinced the demurrer should he sustained.
The demurrer Is based up three ground*,
two of which me of highest Importance
and gu to the constitutionality of the
statute upon which the indictment rests.
The demurrer is made to the indictment
and the statute attacked (1) because .the
legislature in passing the act in question
transcended its powers by making a per?
fectly innocent Il3t a crime, thereby
abridging the liberty or the citizen.
In oilier words, it is claimed by coun?
sel for the demurrer that notwithstand?
ing the accused had acquainted the de?
positor with the insolvent condition of
the hank, and the depositor, still willing
to take the llftk, insisted on making tho
deposit, which the accused then received,
that its reception even under such cir?
cumstances was in violation of the pro?
visions of the statute, and therefore a fel?
ony. In this view the attorney for the
Assuming this to be the correct conclu?
sion to be drawn from the statute, then
it would seem that the legislature had
?rone too far when it undertook to say it
was a crime for an officer of an insolvent
hank to receive money notwithstanding
it may have been from one who was fully
apprised as to the hank's insolvent con?
The legislature, no doubt, simply
meant to punish the receding of deposits
by Insolvent bankers, etc., where the re.tl
condition of the bunk was unknown to
the party making the deposit. But
whether thio position be correct or not,
ami as to its .correctness 1 have some
doubt, it seems to mo there is scarcely
room for two opinions on the second point
That the act is unconstitutional be?
cause in violation of an express provision
of the constitution which declares (Art.
5. Seer, l?) that "no law shall embrace
more than one object, which shall lie ex?
pressed in its title."
I It is fair to assume that tho object of
I the legislature, which sought to give life
I to the set in quest ion, had the pernicious
I rue t ice at which the statute was leveled,
was the receiving deposits by insolvent
bankers and banks, or officers thereof,
without first acquainting the depositor
with the bank's insolvency and to pre
vent the same. Tested by the constitu?
tional requirement referred to let us see
bow well it succeeded.
This requirement is mandatory and
may be said to require of every law to
which legislative sanction gives life to
1. It- must have one object.
2. Tha* object shall be expressed in its
It is with this latter clause alone we
have to deal.
As I have alrealy said, the object of
the act was to'snppress, to prevent orjpro
bibit the receiving of deoosits by insol?
vent hankers, etc. Or to state it differ?
ently, the object was to make it pun'sh
able for ollieers of insolvent banks, etc.,
to receive deposits, etc.
Here we. have the object of the act. Iu
the object expressed in its title:' 1 think
Tins t'tle reufls as follows:
"An act relating to the receiving of de?
posits by insolvent bat kers,lookers or an
officer td' a bank."
It seems to mo it may be stated with
boldness that no man cao close his eyes
to the bodv of the net. and hive anv deli
contluuetl on fourth p?go.

WARRANTS FOR DEPUTIES.

secured'by the United Hungarian Society
this afternoon for the arrest of HierilT
Mai tin und 102 deputy sheriffs who are
alleged to have been concerned in^ the
shooting and killing of seventeen minors
at l.nttimere yesterday afternoon.
The warrants have been placed in the
hands of Robert P. Riley,manager ot the
Anthracite Detective Ageucv. The pros
ecutor named is Joseph Maselato, ?the
president of Sr.. George's Society, of which
most of the miners killed were members,
and arrests will he made tc-night.
A number of promiuent citizens of Ha?

Schloppy, A. E. Hess and A. M. Eddy.
Mr. Eddy was formerly cashier of the
Hnzlcton National Rank and Mr. Hess is

Riley says that some of the citizens of
Ha/.leton who have interested themselves
iu the matter have subscribed money to
assist in securing evidence against the
deputies who fired on the miners. He
says that some nf the dead and wounded
ivere treated brutally while lying on the,
ground at Lattlmore. He cites au in

PHILADELPHIA TROOPS READY.
Philadelphia, Se4.t. 11.?It is believed
here that the situation at Hnzlcton and
the neighboring villages is considered
more serious this afternoon, since the
Philadelphia troops have beeu ordered to
hold themselves in readiness.
M?HR TROUBLE LIKELY.
Pittfiburg, Pa., ?ept. II.?The news
from Columbus that the cent rate had
been rejected has caused great excite?
ment in tnis city and among the miners
generally. The operators are greatly dis?
appointed. Unless the threat made by
the strike leaders In this district to ac
cept. the price carried out it is is probab'b
that the operators will attempt to resume
with new men. A vigorous etT"i t will he
made by the operators to open the Sandy
CreeK mines of the New Ycik and Cleve?
land Gas and Coal Company on Monday.
New men have b^en engaged and are ex?
pected to reach Sandy Cteek on Sunday
afternoon. A building '2(>.\:5'2 feet has
been completed nrar the pit entrance for
the accommodation of the men which the
company expects to import to-morrow
afternoon. This plan of starting up the
Sandy Creek mines is believed to be a
bluff. Fi'teen deputies, la charge of
Lawrence Young, left Plum Creek this
afternoon for Sandy Creek to be. iu read
iness to help open the mines. The inten?
tion to resume work is said to be sincere.
In fact, the operates offered the striking
miners their back pay and wages for
each working day since the strike lieg.in
if they would resume work.

OBJECTS OF TU E COMPANY.?The chief object of the company is to carry on a gene?
ral trade in and to develop the Cold Fields <>f British America and Alaska, including especially
tin' Klondike district, and other equally rich, but hitherto undeveloped placer and imartz regions
.at the headwaters <>t' the Yukon river, about which the company has reliable information from
returned explorers and from members of Government Surveys of Canada and the United Slates.
While other companies are trying to bay or locate claims in the gold regions, this company
has boughl the entire property of .Mr. A. E. Ironmonger Sola, of Dawsou City, consisting of
ten mining claims, under new regulations, and on which a force of men is now at work taking;
out gold. Ol) one of these claims a BTOSpeel shaft has been sunk to within live feet of sup?
posed bed rock and out of which gold was taken at an average of ?1.25 per pan. actual gold,
and by the use of no belter method than the common sluice box. These claims are 100 feet
uj) and down the creek, and running back to the mountain or rim rock on an average of from
*2(H) to 1,500 feet. Tin' pay gravel or detritus is to a depth of about 20 feet to lied rock. \Ve
do not undertake to say how much gold any one (if these claims will produce, but when you
figure thai a pan produces say $1.25, and t here being 120 pans to the cubic yard of earth, and
a claim being too feet long by say 1,000 wide and 20 feet deep, the*result is so great that it.
seems fabulous. Yet it is a fact that some pans have produced as much .as $500 or $600, and
it is no uncommon thing to get as much as ten to twenty dollars, but even at the very conserva?
tive result of $1.25 per pan, when it is understood that this company owns ten claims on Bo?
nanza and Last Chance Creeks, light in the heart of the Klondike, it is not unreasonable to ex?
pect great fortunes to be taken from these claims, and besides the company are now arranging
to send a number of small prospecting parties to the Klondike regions in the early spring to
continue prospecting and locating new claims ami during that time to do a general trading busi?
ness out of which the company expect to make; great profits.
The personnel of the Board of Directors and the Officers is such as to warrant beyond ques?
tion prudent, yet energet ic management, which w ill assure the marked success of tlie;Company's
business. All of the gentlemen interested have been, and are, prominent ami successful in the
largest affairs in the country; have such financial, mining and commercial experience and possess
such it practical knowledge of buying and selling of trading and pioneer work; the ability to
select and appoinl as managers and agents the most competent and responsible men for the va?
rious posts, and by influence and connection, so close a touch with the largest amount of active
capital at home and abroad, as to justify the fullest confidence.
