Judge Ounster forthwith revoked the former order refusing a new trial. The case vvas for the recovery of live feet of u South Side lot. Muthlas Sow ka and .Micella Snyter bought the lot Jointly and in the division Sowka re ceived the rear portion. It was a 110 foot lot and had a ten-foot reservation. Sowka received as his portion only 70 feet. He thought he should have 75 feet as the lot with the reservation was 150 feet long. It waa for this five feet that he brought suit. Judge Stanton repre sented Sowka and Attorneys V. W. Stoke3. M. A. Mcllinley and T. V. Ho baii were Snyter's counsel. The case was tried on Tuesday and on the fol lowing morning the Jury brought In a verdic t for the defendant. That same day Judge Stanton gleaned the Infor mation on which he bases bis charges, and was heard to declare to a group in the court room that he had heard that the Jury had been tampered with and that he proposed to follow the matter u:i us there was, to his mind, no use of practicing In court when cases could be tried uml decided in a bar room.

Local Example of Workings of the Exclusion Act. A Scranton Chinaman Is now belnE held at Fort Hurlington, Vermont, pending an investigation as to his right to re-entry after a trip aboard. He avers that he Is a merchunt, a mem ber of the linn of Hong Gong & Co, of Spruce street, and that he went to the Flowery digdom on a business trip. Postmunter Vundling received this information Saturday in the following letter: Port rsurllngton, Vt Dec. 4, 1SDG. Postmaster, Scranton. Pa, Sir: Enclosed please llnd papers of a Chinese person purporting to tie a mer chant and member of the llrm of Hong Oong Co., of your city. 1'lease Investi gate the statements in the enclos'.d papers and advise this olllce of the standing; and credibility of the witnesses; also the standing of the llrm, and whether or not the applicant performed any manual labor other than was necessary in the perform ance of his duties as a merchant during the next year prior to his departure from the United States. The letter was signed by the deputy revenue collector of Port Iturlingtoii. The papers heferred to were his cer tilicate of registration and a copy of the photograph, tiled with the Inter nal revenue collector of this district. The photograph, which the Port Hur lington authorities forwarded, and which, of course, was a likeness of the detained Chinaman, was found to cor respond with one on file in the internal revenue ollice here. It was also established that he was a merchant and had been for a yenr prior to his return to China and as thi9 lills all the requirements of the law he will in all likelihood be permitted to come Into the land of the free and home of the brave. Why our Celestial neighbor took such a circulur route to reach home does not appear, but it is probable that he land ed In Iiritish America and went across the continent in the belief that he would be liable to meet with less trou ble in entering; by way of an eastern state than a western state, where the antipathy to Chinamen is Just a trille greater than hereabouts. LAW BREAKERS SENTENCED. Penalties That Judge Ounster Im posed in Court Yesterday. Judge Gunster was on the bench Saturday and imposed sentences on persons convicted at last week's ses sion of criminal court.

CONTRACTOR'S FALL. Fell From the Top of the Colliery Engi neer Building and Now Lies . in a Doubtful Cond ition. Edward Bowie, of the firm of Mul duon & Howie, contractors, was very seriously and, perhaps, fatally injured Saturday afternoon by falling from the top of the new building being built for the Colliery Engineer company in the rear of Wyoming avenue, between Mul berry and Vine streets. The hight of his fall was about forty feet. He struck the ground on his tight side and that arm and le;; were fractured. He was otherwise bruised and the bhock of the fail rendered him uncon scious, from which he had not rallied up to a lute hour last nlht. Hj was brought to the Moses Taylor hospital mid a statement made by Dr. Smith, the superintendent, yesterday regard ing Mr. Howie, was that unless a de ckled change for the better occurs with in forty-ight hours from the time of the accident, then the chances are against him. Air. Howie Is a married man and has a comfortable home at tils Pine street. He is tail und heavy. AMUSEMENTS. Herrmann, the magician, who will be seen at the Frothlngham tonight.

One after noon, as the songstress was departing from the metropolis. Hen-man passed by her carriage, which was being fer ried over on the open boat. She was accompanied by the eccentric Ardlttl. While the magician was bowing his compliments, the musician, Arditti, playfully suggested to Mme. Patti that she must beware of Herrmann, who was a renowned thief, llerrinann.with the utmost gravity, assurred Patti of his Innocence. "Hut I would, as a sin cere friend and admirer, inadame." said he, "bid you beware of this ec centric tiddler, in whose face I detect unmistakable signs of kleptomania. I would not be surprised if In a short time he has ridden In your carriage, he has already purloined some trille of yours. With apparent concern he be gan n rigorous search of the indignant Arditti's pockets, and presently pro duced the famous watch which the diva Invariably wears in hw belt.
