"The first I knew Mr. Moere was the Mayer's sun was when I picked up a imirninir nevvpaner and read the head lines. I turned te my daughter and said: 'I pulled a boner here.'

Told that his attitude indicated, after he had facetiously figured nut what could be cut from city taxes after the saving of his salary, Hint perhaps his job as secretary of city transit could be dispensed with without hurting the city .service much, Mr. Moere said: "Of course, being the Mayer's son, I have been able te expedite things around here a let. There are lets of contracts around here thut before we get them ordinarily one might have te write live or ten letters. Thern is a let 'of red tape attached te them. Of course, I ,ftn'l bother, with that.

Irish, wealthy coal opera tor, was acipilltcd of Involuntary num. slaughter teda.v by a jury in Judge Swnrt.'s Court In Norrlslewii. Mr. Irish had been indicted en this charge following the death last June of sixtecu-year-eld Kdwnrd Feley, en Montgomery pike In Lewer Merlen. The Jury deliberated two hours before reaching its verdict at I o'clock. The cesls of the prosecution were placed en the defendant. 'The Jury followed closely the instruc tion", it received from Judge Swarlz. In an nddtess lasting one hour and a half, Hie Judge had pointed out Hint a defendant may be guilty of engllgence in a degree sufficient te hnve him lese a civil suit for damages, nml yet net sufheient te hnve him convicted in a criminal court. As te the costs of prosecution, the Judge had stated te the jurors that a defendant may be shown by the testl testl nieny of witnesses te be guiltless of the charge, and yet at fault in a degree siillicient te make it right for htm te pay the cost of the prosecution. Judge Swart, placed emphasis In Ids address eij the ipiestlen of deciding at which time of night the accident occur red, and whether Mr. Irish could have driven te the cene by that time from the Merlen Cricket Club, where he had dined with friends. The tries nf the hey were lirst heard h.v neighbors at 11:1." o'clock. It had been testllieil. Witnesses for the de fense had sworn Mr. Irish did net leave the dub until after II :.",0 o'clock that night. Put the dub steward yes tenlny testified that all the guests were gene by II o'clock. The testimony about the condition of the machine the morning after the accident was discussed by the Judge. It had been testified one of the head lights was broken, a mud guard dam aged and that spots that mpjlit hnve been bleed were en the vvinifshleM. "Would it lie possible for a deg or a person te damage the fender of Hie car as It was damaged?" the Judge asked. Mr. Irish had testtilied he had struck something in driving home from the dub. He thought it had been n deg and he did net step. Didn't Conceal Anything "It must Le remembered." Judge Swart, said at this point. ' "thut the defendan'. did net try te conceal any thing, 'lti'l that, upon lii.iring of tin i'ceicut. Immediately get in touch with the authorities. "If Ii" struck "and killed u deg. as he slates he belleveif he did. is it net possible or probable that bleed, '.puts would be found?" The Judge pointed out. however, that after n thiee-liuur seaicii, the body of the deg was net found. lie then reviewed the law requiring a motorist te step if he strikes a per son or 'he prepcity of a pirsnu ,m the highways. "Tliei" is m evidence te show that, if Mr. I1M1 killed a deg, that the deg was with his master " the Judge said. "Therefore it was net necessary for him te step. . are net te dccii'e the ouestien of what Mr. Irish did after tin incident, but what he did bcfeic and at the time of th" accident." The Judge pointed out Hint twenty 01 Iwcnty-t'vc miles an hour in an uuto uute uuto niel.ile is net an exivssjvc spied, ami that there vis no evideme te show the car that killed Ihe boy had In en going at an ex-, who sped. The de id boy's In ether, Jeseph, who was Injun d in the accident, had testified the machine "was going fas'." . "Fast is a relative tiriu." H,e Judge 'aid. "and pcr.-ens vary in thiir opin ions." I Mines Manslaughter The Judg defined voluntary and in voluntary mai)siiuhter one a crime Ihe ether a misdemeanor. Negligence en the pan of a motorist may be sufficient te get damages m a civil court, he declared, ami .wt ni, siillicient In convict in a criminal n.urt. "Did the tar driven hy Mi Irish kill the boy?" the Judge asked the jur- 01 s. "If se, was Mr. Irish criiiiin.illv ne,. Ilgent? If he was net guilty of crim inal iicgligein c, acquit him. It ne was guilty of criminal negligence, i.inwu lilni. , "If you nciiuit him, the point. ,uis(s ns te the iiisis of the pioseeiilieu. If a defendant did no wrong, was tried nun ncipilllcd. then his name should net bi besmirched by being made pay the cost of prosecution.

Ituttcr. Associ ate Prohibition Director for the State of Pennsylvania. This beer may be sold en prescription only, and net mere than enc case te one prescription Is permitted. Druggists who wish te take advan tage of this opportunity will have te secure an amendment te their present licenses. Ne one has yet applied, but the eflice is preparing t de n rushing business as seen as the news Is generally known. According te Mr. Ituttcr, the unfor tunate limitation which is placed upon the number of cases of bter, which ench druggist may possess is due te the fact Hint President Harding hns net jet signed the bill nutherl7.lng the brewing of high-authority beer for medical pur poses, and it Is desired that Hie drug gists shall net be tee well stocked with Hie fluid in the event that he refuses te sign it. It is also required Hint the beer be purchased direct from brewers who have been licensed -te make the new variety. Five breweries in this city are se licensed, and it Is exported Hint these will be the source of supply for this city. The ruling states that the druggist may deliver the beer In person le the sick person, or the latter may come and carry it away en Ills shoulder without interference.
