GRAND JURY PRESENTMENT.
To the Honorable the Judges of Quar
ter Sessions of the Peace in and for
the County of Elk, January Sessions,
1879 .-
The Grand Inquest of the Common
wealth of Pennsylvania, Inquiring for
the County of Elk, in all matters re
lating to the same, do respectfully re
port :
That they have acted upon six bills
of Indictment of which four were
found true bills.
We beg leave further to report:
That we have visited and inspected
the county buildings and find, 1st,
That the jail Is cleau and teems prop
erly kept, that the prisoners are sup
plied with wholesome and proper food,
properly prepared. The jail building
is of " the olden time," small, ceiling
low, poorly ventilated, or not venti
lated at all, the number of rooms are
insufficient and insecure for the keep
ing of prisoners, as the several recent
escapee sufficiently proved.
We further report that the court
house roof is represented to us as so
rotten that it cannot be repaired ex
cept by a new roof. We think the
court room unsuitable in size and ar
rangement for the business of the
county, and the almost total want ofi
Ventilation Is seriously detrimental Mi
the health of the court, the jurors am)
the bar. The jury rooms are without
ventilation. The one set apart for the
Grand Inquest is too small, neither of
the rooms have any seats except flat
board benches, without backs with
only three or four chairs. We respect
fully present that It Is unreasonable to
call men front their homes to attend
to the business of the public, keeping
them for bout's Ht a time, and often
from day to day; Without providing
them with reasonably comfortable
seats. We do not hsk for Upholstered
chairs, or velvet lounges, but we do
ask that In this day of Improvements,
those who succeett us. in the Jury
rooms be provided with comfortable
chairs, and we respectfully present
that the court house building as a
whole Is unsuitable for Its purposes,
that it is not wise economy to repair,
that the county being Out of debt, aud
haVing a satisfactory surplus of assets,
and money lit Its treasury, with the
low price of later rind building ma
terial, It is a measure of prudence nnd
economy to replace these structures
with new buildings, not costly and
mammoth structures but with sub
stantial and comfortable buildings.
We respectfully tender our thanks
to the Honorable Judges and District
Attorney for their courtesy and assis
tance rendered us during our delibera
tions. A. B. PRESTON, Foreman.
ELECTION COfTf EST.
In the matter of th5 contested elec
tion for Representative in Congress, of
the Twentieth district of Pennsylva
nia, upon the petitions of Seth H.
Yocum, the Court made the following
order: "January 28th, 1879. On hear
Ing the foregoing petition, It Is ordered
and directed that the persons In whose
possession or custody the ballot boxes
were placed, containing the tickets,
list of voters and. other papers of the
lost general election, shall keep the
same to answer the call of any court or
tribunal authorized to try the merits
of the contested election for Congress,
or take the evidence lu relation to the
same."
Mrs Peter Kennedy, whose death
we noticed in flur last issue, was in
her 97th yeur, and was In many re
spects a remarkable woman. She had
been married three times, Peter Ken
nedy, her third husband, she married
in her C7th year, and at the time there
was not a grey hair in her head. Peter
was then forty years old. Her first
husband died tin the voyage across the
ocean from Ireland, niid nfter a few
years of single life she was married
to u Cunningham, father of Mrs. Cun
ningham of this place, by whom she
had two children, one a boy, dying in
infancy. For a woman of her years
she was remafk-abiy active, only being
in bed about two Weeks in her lust Ill
ness. Washington Letter-
From our regular correspondent.
Washington, D. C, February 3, 1S70.
One of the things that agitates Con
gtess at every session, and stirs up the
minds of our lawyers, and nearly
evsry body else In and about Wash
ington, is the famous McGarrahan
claim. The Judiciary Committee and
Public Laud Committee of both House
and Senate have each In turn wrestled
with it und both Houses now have it
before them, with a faint prospect of
getting it out of the way forever.
William MeGurraban is the owner of
apiece of land in California, which he
purchased of a grantee of the Mexican
government. His title to this land, in
all that constitutes evidence of owner
ship, is perfect, nnd so, in numberless
Instances, has been pronounced. Be
tween him and his patent there stands
a single tech nical obstacle: A clerical
omission by a copyist in the Land
Office whether accidental or fraudu
lentis unknown a merely formal, not
a substantial defect. Operating against
McGarrahan, is a rich corporation
known as the New Idria Quicksilver
Mining Company, which has fought
and harried the poor;lrishman with
the money it had made out of a quick
silver mine on the premises. This
company is not known to the Land
Office records, &nd nobody knows how
it acquired the shadow of a title to the
Eroperty in question. If it does not
elong to McGarrahan it belongs to
the United States ; yet the manner in
which the company has mantained its
tight is but another illustration of the
unjust power of wealthy corj)orations.
With the large profits which right
fully belongs to the man it is con
spiring to rob, it bribes officials, per
suades members of Congress, suborns
perjuries, rewards forgeries, und sub
sidizes newspapers to create public
sentiment, and slander and ridicule
turn whom it has determined to de
stroy. It Is the quicksilver of the
New Idria company, secretly adminis
tered to persons of power and influence,
that puts in jeopurdy the rights of the
proprietor, and prompts the efforts in
innumerable ways to defame his char
acter, becloud his title, immerse him
In an ocean of expenses, nnd divest
him of his estate. A report has Just
been made in the Senate which may
iwssibly effect a settlement of the case,
t assumes that the title to the nro-
perty is in the Government, aud offers
a bill referring the whole controversy
to the courts, by authoriziug the
claimant to bring suit against the
United States in the Court of Claims,
with power to anneal to the Supreme
Court This is similar to the procedure
in me case or tue not Springs, property.
If the final decision is in favor of the
United suites, the court is to order the
property into the hands of a receiver
until Congress directs what shall be
done with it- This would seem a fair
disposition of the case, but for the well
Known delays of the courts which win
give the company plenty of time to
add to tlieir ill-gotten gains, and by
the use of them an unfair advantage
in the litigation.
And now we have a congressman
from Michigan, which his name it is
Elll8worth, who thinks he can stop
the flow of llouor in Washington. He
might as well undertake to stop the
flow tif the Potomac River. But he
has introduced his little bill. Some
time ago he summoned the keeper of
the House restaurant and asked him if
he was selling beer, wine and HquoW,
in th fnnltai TIia nhHWPl1 Was In
the affirmative, accompanied with the
information that It was only sold to
Congressmen) aud that a majority of
mem were witn mm. i ms is prooa-
oiy the truth and Just wnas im its worth
Is going to do about It I dttn't see.
There is Already a very stringent rule
banishing nil drinks of a boozy nature
from the building, and Speaker Ran-
nau una stated once or twice mat lie
intended to son It enforced. But
what's the use? If It Is kept nut of
the restaurant It goes into the com
mlttee fotlms. for Congressmen will
have their tipple. For a time there
was none on sale on the House side,
but the Stsnste caterer kept it, and it
was Intcrestlnir to see the pairs of Con
gressmen lock arms and walk over to
the Seriate Side about every fifteen
minutes. Now all they have to do Is
to bo down stairs and ask for cold tea.
If a stratlger goes in and orders a cup
ot tea ine waiter iooks at nun snarpiy
to see whether he tips the masonic
wink sb I think it Is a mistake alwut
the saleof drinks being confined strict
ly to Congressmen. If the honerable
member wants beer or ale he asks for
a pitcher of milk and the beverage Is
brought in a little sliver pitcner noid
ine lust a bottle of beef.
A bill has baen introduced In the
House to regulate the charges of the
Pullman Palace and Car Companies
and other sleeping cars patented by the
United States. It certainly ought to
pass. If there Is ny one monopoly
more thnn another in this country
that needs regulating It is the Pullman
Palace and SlWriliig Car Company. A
good room with all conveniences at
tached, and an excellent breakfast in
the morning, can be obtained at the
very best hotels In the United States
for What Is exacted by this monopoly
for a narrow contracted bunk in a
nasty Ill-ventilated car. At most
hotels these accommodations cost but
half the sleepirigtat charge, and when
time is not the consideration health
and comfort are served by stnppiug
over Few can enjoy a good night's
rest in the sleepers, nnd fewer still es
cape them without bad colds or some
thing worse, for the luxury of which
one don't like to pay a round price.
The bill proves that it shall be un
lawful to charge more than one
dollar for tlie use of the Palace Car by
one person for twertty-fbtir hours,
under a penalty of S500 to $5,000.
The new Pension bill Which has
now become a law, does not extend
the benefits to any one not heretofore
entitled to them, but it removes the
five years limitation, nndenublet those
who have neglected their clailns to
come In and get what others no more
deserving have already secured. It
also dates back to the day of death
or discharge all existing pensions. It
is estimated that ovsr thirty millions
of dollars will be disbursed the present
year on account of the law, and as the
money goes mainly to the poor people
who need it and will circulate It, some
benefit to business may be realized.
Claim Agents will not be recognizee!
by the Pension Bureau in the disburse
ment of dues under this law.

A Monthly Royal Scrap Bcok.
The most Intelligent readers have
Scrap Books for preserving the
choicest articles clipped from time to
time from newspapers, magazines, and j
books. These collections, although
comparatively very small, arc often
esteemed of more value than many
liooks, because they embrace only the
most precious gems gathered from
large fields of literature. If several
persons of culture nnd experience, who
are especially adapted- for making
these selections, should submit the
results of their lalmrs to a competent
editor tr classify and arrange into de
partments embracing every variety of
des'iraablo household reading, nnd if
this matter thus affatigcd and classi
fied, should be printed in book form,
we should have something like
each number of Wood's itcvschold
Magazine, which con tallies one
hundred large pages. Tills Magazine
is designed to be a Monthly Royal
Scrap Book of the cream of the world's
literature. The February Number on
our table, being the second number of
the sixteenth volume, embodies a
feast of literary gems suited to the
tastes of all readers, and Its articles
breathe a spirit of economy, morality
and virtue which is highly refreshing
in this age of fashionable folly and ex
travlgance. No family can afford to
do without it. The subscription price
is $2 per year. Sample copy will be
mailed on receipt of only 10 cents.
