I 'oft. . Ijist Tuesday was license day in Hedford county. The entire day and evening session of court were taken up in hearing the argu ments of counsel for the a-titiouers and the remonstrants. At the Wednesday morning session the divisions were announced by Judge Ilaer. The eight nppliitioiia iu Ited ford borough weregranted"w ithoiit remarks." Thirty-three applications were filed in all. Twenty-six were granted, thn wen- referred to a Commissioner to take testimony and fiiur were refused. This gives A. E.

We have frequently been asked whether there was not a rule of Court regulating the matter of seats within the bar, and if so, why it was not enforced. There is such a rule, and if the court olHii-rs would enforce it, as tiny should, they would at times save the attorneys and others much inconvenience nnd aunoyance. The following is the language ofthe rule: " No la-mons hall be admitted inside the bar during the sessions if Court except memla-rs ol uie nar, omccrs oi uie court, clients, acoonilianicd by their counsel. uf j,,,,, introduced by the Court or attor neys ; and tlie offici rs are instructed to strictly enforce this rule."

John Dean, President Judge of Blair county, for Supreme Judge, which we most heartily endorse : "There will la- a Judge of the Supreme Court to elect at the next election. We have iu our midst one of the ablest Judges in the State, who has occupied tlie bench in Iwair county for the past fifteen years, and for some twelve years of this time also the benches of Huntingdon and Cambria coun ties. He is not only one of the most able jurists in the State, but he is a gentleman of dignified and commanding apK.-araiice. and popular w ith all classes of the eople. His reputation as au able and learned Judge is as broad as the State. His divisions are uni formly plear, forcible and logical, and only in the rarest instances are they reversed in the higher court. Although a Republican at heart, and a believer in the principles and doctrines of that party, he has always kejit aloof from the factious quarrels in the poli tics of ihe State, and thus is secure from the enmity and opposition of the party leaders in Pennsylvania. At home, where Judge Dean i best know n, he enjoy the resect and es teem of his fellow -citizens, who feel a warm (icrsonal interest iu him, and a pride that our county has the honor of being his birth place and home. During the long term he has served on the bench his honety and in tegrity have never leeil impeached, nor has any charge of corruption or imwniality ever la-en laid at his door. His splendid educa tion, long exerience, and rare natural gifts eminently qualify him as a Judge of tlie .Su preme Court. We do not Know the feelings of Hon. John Dean iu this matter, and we be lieve he has made no effort to secure the nomination, but when the Republican State Convention meeut, in our opinion, it can do no wiser act than to nominate lion. John Dean, of Blair county, for Supreme Judge. The loss of him as our President Judge would be keenly felt by our citizens, but his elevition to Uie Supreme Bench would be a gain to the w hole State." Should Judges Grant Licenses. When the Ltdyer and the tieord. two of our most widely read and resjiected journals, urge that the pending high license bill be amended to vest In the Judges of theCourto the granting of liqunr licenses, it is only natural that our senators and represcnUitives should take cause to consider well the arguments thus presented. Roth of our contemporaries referred to have been among the mo (.earn est mid consistent advocates of a high license law, and their admitted sincerity in seeking to reach the la-t and most prai tii-al reform license system gives additional weight to their views. The Timet has most carefully noted for some years the effect of discretionary judi cial power in granting or refusing applica tions for license, and each year has strength ened the conviction that it is perilous alike to the administration of juslii and to the pror enforcement of a ise license system, to lodge such awer with the Judges. We have trii-d that theory for many years, and it has bred a large measure of contempt for both law aud Courts. To confer such au thority on the Courts must imply some measure of discretion iu granting or refusing licenses. If the provisions of the law clearly define the qualifications of applicants, there is nothing left for Judges to decide, and why lodge an apjmrent power in the Courta that lacks the attributes of practical authority? As tlie law confers discretionary power upon the tribunal that is to grant or refuse licences, the Judges are the last officials who should be thought of to exercise such dis cretion. The present license law confers upon the courts outside of this city, the power to grant or refuse licensi-s to certain presumed limita tions, and how have the Judges exercised that lower? Hardly any two of them have construed tlieir judicial discretion alike ; aud judicial interpretations of the law range from absolute prohibition to practically free license. And the reasons for such startling variations in the exercise of judicial duties under the same law, are entirely logical. Judges are elected by the people ; they are neither more nor less than human and they practically interpret the law on the princi ple ol what may be delicately called popular sovereignty. When thedominant sentiment of a county orcommunity is strongly against license the license law becomes a prohibito ry statute ; when the dominant seiitiifleut is for hotels and saloons and plenty of tlieui the same law becomes substantially a free license statute, and when Counties or communities wrangle over license in nearly equal numbers and quite equal bitterness, the Judges la-come diplomatic or xilitic would probably lie better and the law is balanced to givealMiit equal victories and defeats to the disputants. An elective judiciary should be most scru pulously protected against the perils of judi cial discretion which must offend popular prejudiies. The license question has al ready turned the scale iu fully half a dozen judicial contests before the people, and with the growing agitation of the issue aud the certain increase of intensity on both sides alike in conviction and effort, the continu ance of judicial discretion in granting and refusing licenses, would la- a grave jieril to every conscientious Judge in the State. Our Judges are charged with the administration of justice betwcLii man and man, aud in or der to command public trust in the faithful discharge of that great duty, they should 1 alwolutely separati-d from all outside issues which drag Uie judicial ermine into the slums of jMilitics. There was recently a no table instance of a defeat for a rciiomihiitiou of one of the most able and upright Judges in the State, solely because the saloons were organized against him. True, the a-ople re volted and defeated the candidate who won a nomination by an apsiil to those interest ed in the most latitudiuous interpretation of the license law ; but were not the dignity, the usefulness and the safety ofthe adminis tration of justice gravely inqicrilcd by such an issue? The fundamental theory of a high license system is that it will regulate the nunila-r of licenses itself by the increased cost of license, and that it so clearly defies the qualifications of applicants and the conditions on which license shall la- granted, that there is really nothing left to tlie judicial office hut the en forcement of the la by the judicial punish ment of its violati jci. If communities or nullities shall have any method of prevent ing license in their limits, it should la- some m ire distinct method than the discretion of Judge after he is thuniH-d from post to pil lar by bitterly disputing citizens, and there by organized siiiMrtiiig and opjaisitig par tics to assert themselves as factors in the se lection of his successor. Whether viewed from the standpoint of long past exierience or from the obvious logic of judicial jsilicy, we regard theargumentas conclusive against judicial discreUon in the granting of Incenses.

I have sold a couple of lots, but not my house, aud you will find me at Uie old lucc, prepared Ut entertain persons attending Court, The jurors who receive my card will find me pre sired, as usual, to accommodate them with board and lodging at the usual low rates.

Owing to sickness in niy family, and the amount of work I have to do in the Commis sioner's office, which render it impossible for me to make a canvass ofthe County, I have concluded not to la? a candidate for the Re publican nomination for Register and Re corder at the coming primary election. Thanking my many friends for the eiimur- agemeut they gave me, and the promises of support, I am. Very Resiwctfully, A. J. HlLKMAN. Pugh Items. The farmers are about done sowing oats. Corn aud artato planting is next in order. The candidates are bobbing up again. You can find them at every barn-raihing, with pleasant smiles on their tucea.

The Bohemian oats dodge being alaiut played out in its original shajie, owing to the fact that the farmers have found out the value of reading newsjiapers, the swindlers who are wont to make farmers their siecial prey have evolved a new form of it. They have been going around Mercer and Craw ford counties selling eggs for $3 a dozen con tracting to take all the chickens hatched from them at each, representing that they are a very valuable breed. When the rural housewife has kept these eggs und-jr a set ting hen a month or more withou'. result au examination is made and it is discovered that the eggs are boiled. This is even worse than the Bohemian outs dtalge iu its former shaM-, for the oat which the sw indler sold at $10 a bushel, promising to pay the same price a-r bushel for the following year'scrop therefrom, were gisal oats, worth the bight-sit market prij-c, but, of course, worth nothing like as much as the farmer paid for them. This mitigating circumstance, however, was ofiset by the fact that the contract which the farmer signed eventually turned up as a promissory not. The egg notes will a-rhaps la; heard from later on. I'ltibtdrlpltia Timtf. The Next State Convention. The following is from tlie Media American t 'hainnan Cooper's aaT ami is, of course, trustworthy : The Republican State Convention cannot in-called, in the off years, la-fore the third Wednesday of August, and doubt less the State Convention will agree to fix the time late in August, or early in September. Here after there will be no Senatorial delegates, these having been abolished by the last State Convention, which fixed futtiro representa tion in accord with the following resolution, which was unanimously adopted : Kemlifd, That the office of Senatorial deb gote be and the same is hereby abolished, and that bereatter delegates to the ivetiuhli can State t '(invention shall I elected by the representative districts only, and that the R publican State Convention shall hereafter la: coiiiiHised of delegates eli-cteil from the vari ous representative districts on the basis of one delegate for each member ofthe House of Representatives to which such district is entitled. The alaive was printed and generally cir culated as the first resolution in the platform of last year. The total number of delegates hereafter will be 2(11, equal to Uie iiumU-r of Representatives to the Legislature, and each district will govern its selection by the num lier of Representatives to which it is entitled. If the pew apiKirtioiiment bill passes they will be governed by that if not, by the old. Our Harrlsburg Letter. 'im our Special CbrretptmtlenL Hakkiski uu. May 7, 1W. This week has lst-n so prolific in gotsl work, especially iu the House, that there is a slight rumor that the session might extend a week or ten days beyond the liith inst., the day fixed for final adjournment. Both Hous es must concur in the extension ofthe time, and while there isa disposition on the part of some of the Senators to extend the time tti the one hundred aud fifty days, in order to get the fifteen hundred dollars salary to which they would be entitled under the old law, as only the new Senators one-half gel the fifteen dollars per diem. The old Senators get but ten dollais per diem. This desire, however, is not sympathi.ed ill by tbe House, which has already given the Senators thirty-six out of the additional fifty, days and it is not likely that they will be generous enough to extend the time. All indications now look to an adjournment by the nine teenth. The weather has ln excessively warm, which increases the desire to get away. Monday evening did not accomplish much outside of the usual routine, and an effort made by many meniliers to get their bills made a siecial order, Philadelphia has but recently discovered that they must have an elevated railroad, and secured a siecial or der for their bill, giving swers for an un derground ami elevated road in cities of the first and second class. It created considera ble discussion, inasmuch as the Traction Coinauy opisised the bill. Mr. Faunce letl off the op vosit ion with a very able argument but the hill passed third reading by a large majority. The Philadelphia mkts wen; strongly in favor of the movement. A seciul calendar was made for the week, and many bills were considered. The ap propriation bills have nearly all passed final ly, including tlie general appropriation hill providing for the expenses of the State, which give an additional half million of dollars for the public schools being now a million and a half dollars of money. This is a very in,- Hirtant step iu the right direction, the only tlitliciilty being that the distribution of the fund is unfair and umspial, inasmuch as the jioorer districts do not get their share. Hut all efforts to change the law in that direction wouid fail at this time, at least ; the rich can always out-vote the oor. Night sessions were held during the week, and the House is now worked to its full ca pacity. The Senate is doing good work, and keeps up with the House. The Legislative ApMirtionment bill passed with a few chang es, but has not yet been returned to the House. On Wednesday evening the High License hill was mailt- a sKcial order, and was considered far into the night, and a num ber of important changes were made; among others was dividing the licenses so as to give the right to sell beer, ami increasing the li censes in Boroughs to -1n, and Townships to $UlO. These amendments are not well re ceived by the House, and will go a good ways, towards defeating the bill, but it is be lieved that the Senate will recede as to some of the more radical amendments, anil the House will accept some of the amendments in a committee of conference, aud that the bill will pass both Houses finally before the session adjourns. The contested election case from Cameron county came up before the Committee on elections iu the House this week. The court had aw arded the seat to George W. Warner, I H-mocrat, but the Committee, after a most careful investigation and pains-taking hear ing, were ofthe opinion that the Democrat ic Judge was slightly biased in his opinion, and gave the seat to the Republican mem ber, George A. Barclay, which is in accordance with the law and the facts in the case. Philip. 6.000 Pounds of Wool wanted, either for trade or cash, at Parker & Parker's Requirements In Manuring. In the successful management of Ms farm, every farmer must consider two jsiints, name ly, the necessary requirements of his soil and the specific, requirement of the crop that is to la? grown. The soil may la-deficient in all the elements that goto make up fertility, and to such an extent as to render success in the production of -any crop very improbable. Here, then is a requirement that must be at tended to. or else coiltin'ied .failure will lie likely to la; experienced. Or the soil may la very ajor iu sitasli, iu which case a potash manure will lie najuired ; or, again, it may be deficient in phosphoric acid, in which case the deficiency must be provitled for. Disastrous results may sometimes la? avoid ed, where there is a deficiency of a single ele ment by the cultivation of somecmp that re quires a minimum quantity ofthe deficient element. Manuring then should be for a double purpose of restoring to the soil ele ments in which it is deficient, and to supply the demand of croH that are being grown. Soil analyses may be made and will give information alaiut the vegetable nutritious substances contain.il in it. but as yet they have been unable to fix upon the degree of availability for plant nse ; that matter must be left for the determination of plants them selves, and at once proves the advantage of individual experimentation for the purpose of letting the different crops determine for themselves the amoiiiitof nutritious substan ces that they can make use nf, and so deter mine what must be supplied. This idea of individual ex-erinientat.ion is gaining im portance all the time, and those farmers who are grasping the idea with a full view to its importance, are the farmers w ho are a little in advance of others as regards their under standing of the requirements of the farm as well as in the success that attends their ef forts.
