Ringler, of Elk Lick township, had nineteen half-grown boys arrested for stealing his Mitatoes. It is alleged that they stole the tuliers from 343 hills, or about a quarter of an acre. Mr. Ringler's potato patch lies con venient to a sw imming hole in the Cas- seluian riverthat hasalways oeen liberally patronized by the boys of that region.

He visited the place yesterday, selected the most prom ising specimen and assume-J responsibil ity at om-e by purchasing it an entire new outfit. Things were running smooth ly until Mr. Pugh arrived at the Central hotel, and here the baby liegan to cry. He made a canvass of all the servants in an attempt to find one willing to take care of the baby over night, but none wanted the jot.

At the invitation of the County Com missioner, a number of business and pro fessional men met with them in the court room Monday morning, when the plans aud specifications for heating the court house and connty jail by either hot water or steam were submitted for their in spection. There appears to Is? a great di versity of opinion as to the respective merits of the two systems of heating, and the commissioners were anxious to secure an expression from those w ho have had experience with both. The consensus of opinion was in favor of hot water heat, but we understand that the commission ers have solicited propounds for both sys tems and will decide upon which they will accept after all of the proposition, have been received and scrutinized. With the introduction of artificial heat the county building, with their valuable records will be fire proof, both building, having already beeu provided with elec tric light. The Commissioner, also have under consideration the advisability of provid ing the court house with a numlierof water closets and it is probable that they will utilize the vault connected w ith the County Superintendent', office for this purpose, since it is the only available space on the first floor of the building. A. is well known to all citizen, of the county who have business to transact at at the court house the present closet is a menace to the public health and must lie abandoned. When all of the contemplated improve ments have been made the county build ings w ill be models of comfort and con venience. Death of Urs. John D. Koddy. Agnes M. Roddy, wife of the late John P.

X0 FEAR OF TIIE LAW Laurel Hill "Moonshiners" Have Besnmed Their Former Occupation. Tho following graphic account of the activity of the illicit distilling business in this and Fayette counties is taken from the always veracious Connellsvillo f 5 n'er: County Petectivo Frank Campbell ha for more than a year past been in ese sion of evidence sufficient to convict a quartet of Springfield township moon shiners. Had the Secret Service officials seconded him, a raid that would have resulted in the capture of four still, could have been made. At the present time illicit distilling is going on w ithin four miles of Xnrmalville. Vital statistics and information have I seen divulged re garding the sturdy mountaineers' mys terious consumption of rye and oats, but still the moonshiners, like the night owl in the somberglareof the twinkling stars, hoot at every prying eye aud defy detec tion of their secrets among the chestnut, and the pines of Laurel Ridge. There is a day of reckoning coming, however, and it would have been a thing of the past now had I' tide Sam's sleuths taken ad vantage of the information furnished tbeiu. A little over a year ago County Detec tive Campbell began collecting evidence against the mountain whisky distillers. With the assistance of one or two persons who were well acquainted in the district and knew every foot of the moonshine territory be succeeded in locating four stills. Conclusive evidence of the exist ence and operation of these was in his possession last spring. Ex-Peputy Col lector L. M. Herrington was informed and the two made their report to the Se cret Service Department. Their co-operation was asked to make a raid on the moonshiners. They gave their promise but never carried it into effect. Repeated appeals to them since then have gone un heeded. The moonshiners in the moun tain, though always suspicious of every intruder into their wild mountain prem ises have grown much bolder. The dis tribution of their "mountain dew" has been extended for many miles around and the "shiners" have grown to feel so secure from the law as to deliver their product to persons living within a mile of Connellsville. Most of those now engaged in the ille gal trade are old bands at the business. Messimer Kramer is one. He lives in a small plank house on the very top of the Laurel Hill mountains, about five miles beyond Springfield. It is a lonely place and well adapted to the secret business, for which the solitude is a fitting shield from the law. Old "Bill" Pritts, the fugitive murderer of Yony Hochstetler, at present has no still in his own home. He probably knows thst if there is a raid made his house will be one of the first to lie searched. Pritts has a more fertile farm, if the cleared patches on the moun tain can be called farms than any of his neighbors. Xone of them plant more wheat and corn and potatoes than is nec essary for their home consumption, but all plant as large a piece of ground as possible in rye. Pritts does not sell rail road ties or pit posts, but makes a larger sewing of rye than his neighbors. His distilling is done at the Kramer still. "Bill" Kramer, a brother to Mesximer, gather, the rye from the different grow ers interested in the moonshining and hauls it to Jones Mills, above Pavistown, not far from Indian Head. There the grain is ground and then hauled back to tho distillery, which is a very crude affair. A furnace is built and a good siz ed copper kettle placed on it. The kettle has a double lid, both fitting tightly and the top one having a high inverted fun nel. At the narrow cm! of this funnel is ultuched the worm, which carries the condensed vapor into a barrel. There it becomes the celebrated moonshine w his ky. The ingredients of the liquor are water and rye or outs. Ryo is the favorite malting grain, but if that is not to be had the process does not stop if oats can be obtained. Sometimes laurel is put in the fiery leverage. This makes the liquor liorder close on to a poison, and of course it is only kept in reserve for a siqqxised enemy. It is a veritable mountain knock-out drop. A man who is well known here went to the Kramer still re cently and asked for some of the famous whisky. He was not sufficiently ac quainted with the wary moonshiners, and they denied having anything strong er than water alHiut the house. He in sisted uiion having a drink, claiming to know all about the business and threat ening to give them away if they did not satisfy his thirst. They gave him more than satisfaction. He was given a drink of the laurel-dosed whisky and in a short time was w ild as a raving maniac. When he regained his senses he found that he had been led far away from the still, and also that he had been robbed. Wilson Tinkey, a neighlior of Kramer's, operated a still up till a few- months ago, when he either quit making the "dew" altogether or moved his still to some other plai-e. At all events it is not made at his house, and it is thought that he has severed his connection with the en tire list of moonshiiiers. "Jim" Hart and son, Samuel and Scott Griuiin had a still in ier.it ion almost constantly lor several months this year. Their little log house located immediately across Indian creek below Indian Head had every advantage for good distilling. A spring of clear water runs through the cellar, giving them an exhaust less sup ply without labor or the fear of detection. Their furnace was built in the cellar also, aud a connection was made to the chim ney of the house for a smoke outlet. The process of making the "moonahine" was not kept going every day, and hence a detective might spy from a fence cor ner for several days and see nothing more than a peaceful little mountain home. But if he persevered he would finally see a wagon load of the chopped grain arriving at the house. By-snd-by a few mountaineer, would come in from different directions and after awhile an unusual amount of smoke would curl up from the little chimney and roll off into the trees. Several times the Hart house has been watched iu this manner without their knowledge. It was also visited w hile the still was going by a peddler, who was given more than usual liberties aliout the place. He learned inucli, and then gave his information to County De tective Campbell. The Harts evidently became frighten ed, for in the spring they moved their still about a mile away to the house of Davl I Pletcher, where it is now. The moonshiners the more easily pre serve their secrets on account of their relationfchip. Besides "Bill" Pritts, who is at the head of the whole gang, there are in his neighborhood Jacob, George, and Stephen Pritts and severalothers, all of whom are related to Pritts aud live near him at the head of Xeal's run. The moonshiners have another method of keeping their secrets. Everyone who desire, to enter into this illicit traffic, be fore taken into the confidence of the dis tillers, is obliged to take what is termed among the moonshiners, "The Black fhtth.". While being- baptized in moon shine whisky the candidate .wears to kill any of the faithless members who divulg es a set-ret of the unlawful manufacture and barter, at the same time submitting himself to the liability to the same fate, should he ever prove treasonable. "The Black Oath" explain, the fate of Yony Hochstettler, who was murdered alsiut five year, ago by "Bill PritU" and Wui. Miller. The latter is now serving a term in the Penitentiary for his crime. Hochstettler had taken "The Black Oath." He broke it and paid the penalty with hi. life. James Grimm, who lives on the Will iam Bassenger property near Simon Por terfield, collects the whisky at the differ ent stills and peddle, it about among the customers. H deliver. Irregularly, often arriving with hi. jug for one of his customer, a day earlier or a day later, and sometimes the liquor is delivered ly Highest of all in Leavening S Absolutely pure cue of tho mountaineers, mnuy of whom see nothing wrong in the trall'if. Many also go direct to tho stills and get the whisky themselves, the demand often being so great that the liquor is sold di rect from the worm. Grimm has leen in t lie habit of adopting a dicoy w hile de livering. He loads on the w agon apples, potatoes and other things, placing the whisky underneath. His usual load is 15 gallons. The whisky is white iu color. It is sold at 25 cents per pint or per gal lon. It i delivered now as far north as the mountain region lieyond Mt. Pleas ant and as far south as Counellsville township. In summing up the moonshine Imsiness it is safe to say that trade is prosperous in Springfield township. The number of distillers is greater than for many years, and more moonshine is flowing from tho little copper stills than ever liefore. Besides the band of illicit distillers that infest the mountains along the Fayette Somerset line there are several persons in the same neighborhood who aro doing an extensive and profitable business in counterfeiting silver coins. Within the past two mouths at least fifty spurious dollars have beeu passed in and around Connellsville. The record of the leader of this gang of coinackers is on file at Washington. It is by no means an en viable one. The fellow is a skillful chem ist, a clever designer and altogether a very smooth article at counterfeiting. A Somerset Boy Nominated for Judge. Tho Greensburg Drmitrrat of last week says : In the unanimous nomination of Paul II. Gaither, Esq. .for additional law judge, the Democracy presents to the voters of Westmoreland one of the foremost mem ber, of the bar and one of the best equipped for that exalted position. Mr. Gaither is an attorney of large practice and an experience covering every im portant line of legal business. Xot only is he thoroughly "learned in the law," but he is also a gentleman of scholarly attainments and broad culture. He Is likewise a man of the most upright char acter, and, in this community, w here he ia best known, he is held in general esteem. The nomination was tendered to him without opposition and without solicita tion on his part, in recognition of his splendid qualifications for the bench. Should he be elected, of w hich there are the most flattering prospects, we are con fident that he will fully meet every reas onable public expectation." Mr. Gaither is the youngest son of the late Samuel Gaither, of Somerset. The strongest argument that i-au lie urged against him is thut he is a iH-mocraU "Yellow" Treatment. 'Mid scenes of confusion the Rockwood base ball team, with a following of about forty lovers of the national game, and the Ohio Pyle team, with some two hun. dred and titty sectators from that p!a-e, to say nothing of the contingent from the surrounding country, met on the grounds of the latter on Friday afternoon. The game was soniewh delayed owing to the owner of the grounds .threatening to sue the visiting loam for trespass, w hi-ii was only one among the many discourto cies shown the Rockwood players. After seven innings, and the home team w ith out a score to their credit, tho umpire came to their assistance and made them a donation of the runs they received dur ing tho remaining two innings. Not since the days of Robin Hood has a man so cleverly stolen from his fellow man as did Umpire Rush during this game. With two men out in the ninth inning and three men on bases, J. M. Miller came to the list and made a hard intield hit which was fumble! by the second baseman, McCrum, which gave Miller time to mix up with first liaseinan Rush, who dropiied the ball. The umpire call ed him safe and two runs crossed the plate, which put Rockwood two runs iu the lead. He afterwards reversed his decision and wished to call it a lie, but this was not permitted by Captain P. S. WilL A particularly fallacious report of the game was sent to the Pittsburg paters, reporting the result of the game as 10 to 111, and further claiming the game by authority or the umpire's decision by SUa Rockwood was treated "yellow" throughout the entire game. I'nipire Rush has the ability to umpire a game in a very satisfactory manner when away from home, but when supported by the Ohio Pyle "rooters" his coiwiem-e In comes very elastic.

Before Alderman Ponohue, of Wilkes barre, Stephen Pirsey, a colored man, was arraigned charged w ilh brutally beating his wife aud failing to supiNirt his four children. The alderman tried to induce P.irsey to turn over a new leaf and become reconciled to his family. The prisoner said he would rather go to jail than support his family. He also threatened lo get even with his wife for having him arrested. This made the justice angry, and he invited Porsey into his private office. After the door was closed behind them Itonohue told Porsey to take off his coat. The latter did so. Then the alderman said: "I'll show you if you won't support your wife and fami ly. Are you ready?" Porsey said: "Io you mean to fight me?" "I mean to pun ish you," said the justice. The alderman then wailed into the prisoner. The latter was a powerful man, but he could not ward off Donohue's blows. Porsey had to finally cry for mercy, and under sol emn promise that he would not beat his wife again Ponohue allowed him to de part. Hirer Dynamiting BUI. For years the illegal practice of dyna miting the rivers and streams in the State by people wiio wanted to catch fish, but were too lazy to go for the tinny tribe in a legitimate manner has been in vogue. The following bill, passed finally, makes the practice of dynamiting a stream or river in this State a flagrant violation of law. Here is the bill: Smtios 1. Be it enacted by the sen ate aud house of representatives of the commonwealth of Pennsylvania in gen eral assembly met and it is hereby enact ed by the authority of the same. That no person shall at any time place in any of the waters of Pennsylvania, any tor pedo, giant powder, nitro glycerine, dy namite, lime, electricity, or any other poisonous or explosive substance for the purpose of catching or taking fish. Sw. Any person or persons offend ing against any of the provisions of this act shall be guilty of a misdemeanor, and on conviction thereof, shall lie fined fifty dollars for each offense aud undergo an imprisonment of not less than thirty days, or more than one year. Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report Horcrier Mail For Almshouse Inmates. Ju.lo Thomas, Assistant Attorney General for tho Post Office Department, has just made a curious d.s-isioti in a case which came to him from the Pittsburg Almshouse, involving the right- of the IniiK.tes of that institution to rei-eive mail from llieir friends outside. Complaint was ma le by the inmates that mail ad dressed to them had been opened lie fore delivery by officials of the insti tution. Judge Thomas rules that carriers may deliver mail for the inmates of such insti tutions to the keepers or offii-ers thereof, but that the latter may refuse to give the mail to those to whom it Is addressed un less they will agree lieforehand to inform the officers of the contents of the letters or packages. The Judge also holds that officers of these institutions have no right to open the mail of inmates, but may hold it indefinitely as a precaution in the absence of an agreement to disclose the contents.
