Martin's Ferry is a proper subject for
congratulation. Official notice ha# been
given that a fine new depot will be commenced
there by the Cleveland & Pittaburgh
Company early in the spring to
supplant the shanty that now serves (or a
station, a handsome brick structure, with
separate departments for freight, passenger
and telegraph busineae. One or two
tracks will be run into the freight depart* I
ment. The new structure will be built on |
the site of the old one, burned some time1
ago, and of the shed which has been the
unsightly substitute since the flro.

Laat night, sometime between 9 o'clock
and midnight, thieves effected an entrance
[ into tho dry goods storo of J. W, Ferrel,
!on Main street, in the Fifth ward,
and stole threo fine cloaks and a
number of shirts. Their presence
wss discovered and the proprietor
notitied, when an examination of
tho stock showed this to be the extent of c
tho loss. The thieves were evidently in- t
terrupted by the discovery, or they would
doubtless have secured a much larger
haul. The cloaks were line ones, and the 2
lots is in the neighborhood of $60. The c
burglars wero not recognized, and they
were frightened away too quickly to allow
of their capture. a

for that matter." The liellaire ImUptndnU

A Notablo l?ugn|;t>ii)em ut the Opera lioaac
Mr. W. E. Shoridan, supported by hie
wife, known to fame as Miss Louise
Davenport, and an admirablo company,
appeared at the Opera House Saturday
afternoon in "Parthenia ami Ingomar"
and at night in Casimer de Lavigne's little
known drama, "Louis XI." in tho matinee
performance, more properly speaking,
Miss Davenport was suj ported by Mr,
Sheridan. Better Jngomari have been
seen on the Bamo stage. Miss Davenport
is a beautiful woman, and a fine actress,
and she made an ideal Partlpnia. The
uupport was above tho average. Evidently
the play waa put on that Miss Davenport
might share both the honors and the
labors of the engagement.
Tho evil monarch, Louit II, madomore
wicked and hideous by Uo Lavigne than
his raal character justified, waa a new
creation on tho Wheeling stage. The
audience was large and composed of in
telligent. critical people to an unusual extent.
If Mr. Sheridan was at his best or
this occasion, then the general verdict
that bis interpretation of the role is uc
great an to bn all but marvelous would b(
reversed if Wheeling were the court o
last reeort. That be is a talented actor cat
not be denied, and at times bis imperson
ation of the dying body and iron will ol
the bad King was so nearly perfect as tc
compel amazement when, in othei
tpencs, he # recited his lines as if he
did no pimply treatise they had
been written by the author and piuit
gono through only to reach another scent
more to hia taste. The peevishneea and
impatience of age, the dread of death, the
hypocritical simblance of christian meek
ness, were well portrayed, aud the tri
Utnpb of the wicked will over physical
owardi^e, whep the physician, Cuititr,
predictB Jjouu' early dobth big own
execution, and the weak old ihau, gaining
sudden strength from passion, snaps out,
"Well, then I'll die!"?this was the perfection
of art. But in the heroic scenes,
as when dispatches couriers to beai
the news of the fall 'of CJjgrlps pf jjip-f:undy,
there was a weakness not in keepDg
with the ideal to be gathered from the
author's lines. Tbo performance as a
whole, however, was unusually interesting,
and commanded the attention even oi
thoee who had seen Irving in the role.
Miss Davenport aw Marie was all thai

Lloyd's tfemouri was an unusually hianly
and wall rounded piece of heroic acting.

A PolletuaD'? Kuii-Klgbt Poker Flayara
The flourishing and notorious gambling
house at 1206 Water street was raided by
the police Saturday afternoon. Otto
Tyson was in charge at.the time. The
eight other men in the room put up
money to cover the usual fines, and
Tyson to cover that of a keeper, and all
I were released. Had they keen women ot
the town, without influence, they would
have Hpent the night in the lockup. It is
said that their right names were recorded.
This ia probably so, as the record was
concealed. Occasionally au officer reproaches
the press for not printing
the names of persons arrested
on pulling expeditions. The factis "Chief"
Smith is too cowardly to allow it to be
done when the parties"arrested aro of any
prominence. Kyn the Kcgiiter, his personal
organ, expresses its disgust at his
vacillating, silly, unmanly discrimination
ngainst the weak and friendless in this regard.
The raid moutioned waa made by
Officers Watson, Dunlap and Lukens. The
last named tirst secured entrance into the
room disguised in civilian garb. The
rooms aro carefully guarded, and are considered
bv the oolice hard to pull. The
proprietor has certainly enjoyed a fair do-1
?ree of immunity frorn annoyance?almost
us much as three or four well known!
houses of ill fame which Captain Smith I
never pulls.
Daclded bjr the Supremo Court of Appeal*
Luit >V??k.
Among the cases decided at the final
flitting at Charleston of the Supremo Court
of Appoala was that of Johnaton vs. The
Commercial Bank of Wheeling. The history
of this case is as follows: B. R. Johnston
had been in the habit of giving his
notes for furniture purchased from the
Riverside Furniture Company of this city.
A note purporting to have been made by
him was discounted by the Commercial
Bank and Johnston afterwards discovered
that it wes a forgery. Philip Metzner,
connected with the furniture company,
finally acknowledged that ho had forged
the note. iMetzner died shortly afterward?,
but JohnHton delayed a long time
in notifying the bank that the
paper had been forged, and when
such notification was made ho demanded
that tho money which ho had paid on the
note ho refunded him. This the bank
refused to do, claiming that it was an innocent
party in the transaction; that it
had discounted the paper in the usual
course of business, aud Johnston having
paid the uote, the Commercial Bank was

fore declined to repay, and suit waa
brought. Tho case waa tried in the Man.
ici pal Court hero and dec ided against Johnston.
Ho tbon appealed to tho Supreme
, Court. This tribunal last week remauded
the case back to the Municipal Court for
' a new trial. The Supreme Court in rendering
ita decision said:
' It ia an established rule of commercial
law that the drawee of a bill of exchange
is presumed to know the handwriting of
' tho drawer, and a fortiori, the maker of a
negotiable note ja presumed to know his
, own signature, and ir the drawee accepts
or pays tho bill, or tho maker pays the
negotiable note in the hands of a bona fi Je
holder, to which the drawer's or maker's
name has been forged, he ia bound by the
f act, and cannot recover the money bo
i paid."

Tho town of Hintou, in Summers county,
was thrown into a stato of groat excitement
S'aturdar, when two Buits that had
been brought in the Circuit Court became
known. The parties to tho auita are well
known in Hintou, and have moved in the
best society. Tho defendaut, Robert
Flannsgan, came from Virginia, but lias
lived in Hintou a number of years, where
he had accumulated h considerable
I amount of property, and had become
(popular with both Boxes. Mr, G. W.
Adams, the plaintiff in one of the suits, is
| a merchant, and also has a considerable
(amount of property. Miss Sue Adams,
uaugJiier 01 Jir. auxini, huu piuiuuu in
tho other suit, is about twenty years of
age, a blonde of voluptuous form, and
acknowledged to be the prettiest gi/J in
iiinton. At one time she was courted by
all of tho young meu of the place, who
hoped not oniy to get a pretty wife but to
bo aided financially br the father. Among
her admirers was Flanna^an, and it
was coonseen that lie was the favored ouo.
Iler other suitors then withdrew, and aociety
hue been expecting tho announcement
of their engagement for some time.
It came in an entirely unexpected manner.
Of the two suits mentioned, the
first one is brought by Mr. Adams for $16,000
for seduction, aud the afchor by his
daughter for $10,000 for breach of promise.
When Miss Adams found ahe would not
be able to hide the ovideuce of her weakness
longer, ahe urged Flannagan to marry
her. lie promised to do so in three
days, but before they had elapsed he
deoded his property, amounting to $30,000,
to his brother, aud taking a west-bound
train, left for parts unknown. When
Miss Adams found alio could expect no
assistance from him, she told her father of
the follv, and tho two suite resulted. Much
sympathy is felt for Miss Adams, and a
great deal of indignation for Flannagan,
who has always had a reputation for strict

Jamea Cooper, who for several years past
has lived a very invsterious life. At c

lives by himself, anil during the recent I
cold snap did not have any fire in his f
house and did not eat anything for some
days, although he had both fuel and food 2

any reason for this. His extremities were

him to eat. <
