REDISTlilCTING OF THB CODNTY JWAS A MOVE IN THB RIGHT DIRECTION, THE MARKET STREET ORGAN TO THE CONTRARY NOTWITHSTANDING?"VOTE" PUT8 SOME PERTINENT INQUIRIES TO THE REGISTER. WHICH IT WILL FIND IMPOSSIBLE TO ANSWER. -1__ To the Editor of the Intelligencer. SIR:?The Register of this morning devotee a column of Its editorial page to the gerrymandering of tte county. as H | I? pleased to call it. Som.e the readers j of that paper would like It to pubHsh the | vote ??f each district ae cast in Novem- | btr. I8!i6, and the vote ae shown by the j assessors at the present'time in each district. The Register asserts that sure Demo- | critic districts were cut up and divided from one end of the county to the other, which is a surprising statement. I am informed the force country' districts were not uisturbpd. How in tfte name of all that Is reasonable can the Register turn n district Democratic that has not gone that way for years. The city districts have beun Republican for years, with one or iivo exceptions. fi? 11no?nrt? thflt for liic rvcfjipici ?? >?< ??? ? mer Democratic b.'ards could 'have redistrlcted the county amfctfeus perpetuated themselves In office, we have had some pretty cute Democratic boards, but hardly cute enough for that. How could they make a district north of the creek Democratic when they have not been able to elect a commissioner In that section for years, and could not possibly by any change they could have made, by 'clear cut" lines, or llneff'as crooked as the vision of, or political views of the Register, make a Demi>cnrtfc district? The Register claims the 'redisricting was done by what it pleojej to call the "ring." I am informed by members of the present board of commissioners that the changes were made without the aid or advice of any ring, if rings there be; that the lines were made straight which were formerly crooked. Will the Market street paper take a lobk at the maps of the new districts and point out the defects? By comparing the old line* with the new we see that th&'dlstrlcts are not only nearly equal In voting population, but the lines run straight from the river to the city limits on the east. I believe the changes as made will meet the approval of all. fair minded men of either party when they look Into this matter for thenftelves, and not take the tirade and trash of the Register for facts. Let that paper gtfcd Its readers the vote by districts of old as well as new, side by side, and show where former crooked lines were made straight, and h< the public Judge who is rlghL Finally, how would it da'for the Register to give its readers-a. rest on the I'c-cKsnJfT dflycl, and devote a. mue ume In finding out where the Popocrata stand on the Imum of the day?

BARTOUS?THE COURT HOLDS THAT THE JUSTICES OP THE Tin rtTT iim VTrt TTTDTOnTPTTHV r?iAV/?i X1AV?< nu THIS THROWS THE INFORMER LITIGATION INTO THE CRIMINAL COURT. Id the case of Mrs. Kate Bartdis vs. Justice of the Peace James A. Dunning, arguments in which were made last week by Colonel George B. Caldwell for the plaintiff and by Colonel Arnett for the defendant. Judge Paull of the circuit court yesterday rendered his decision, which is in effect that the justices do not possess Jurisdiction, and that the proper court to bring such litigation is the criminal court, the grand jury first to find an indictment, and then there must be a conviction before the informer gets anything. Speaking of the decision yesterday. Colonel Caldwell said that he believed that the decision of Judge Paull would sound the death-knell of any further tax Informer prosecutions. Others who ore not so sanguine believe that the Informer crowd will attempt to secure indictments from the next criminal court grand Jury. The next lew weens win determine the matter. Judge Paull'i decision In full was as follows: Kate Bartollas vs. James A. Dunning, and others, upon petition for writ of prohibition. On or about the 13th day of September, 189#, a Judgment in favor of M. W. Bird for $12 50, was rendered against the petitioner by James A. Dunning, a justice of the peace of Ohio county, in a civil action, brought for the recovery of money due the said Bird as informer under the provisions of section 69, of chapter 29 of the code. This section reads as follows: "If any persons whose duty it is by law to list any personal property, being called upon by the assessor to do so, refuses to furnish a proper list thereof, - Ha Hall fnrfolt no * lntut than ten nor more than one hundred dollars. And if any person full to give a true list of all money loaned which should be assessed,. he shall, in addition forfeit 5 per centum on such sum not so listed, which shall go to the informer." And the question to be decided is, whether Justice Dunning had jurisdiction to render the Judgment aforesaid. Chapter 36 of the code concerns "the mode of recovering fines." Section 1 of that chapter reads: "When a statute imposes a tine (which word is intended I to include every pecuniary penalty or ) forfeiture,) it shall be to the state for the support of free schools .unless it is otherwise expressly provided"?as is the case in section 59 aforesaid as to a part of the fine there imposed. And section 4: Where a fine alone is imposed, if !t be in a case mentioned in section two hundred and nineteen of chaptcr fifty of this code, it may be recovered upon warrant of a Justice having jurlsdlc- ! Hon! and whether so mentioned or not. I it may be recovered by presentment or indictment In -the circuit court of thej " Our T ' Annivc L. usual Saturday cl r" people to get thei week's work. e thanks for the unar jcceeded beyond our i business principle, an The Is C To-( gIL. If your pac delay, as thi ||: sons at wort 11/ REMEMBE 1 GEC u >. _.1 \ New S county wherein <he offense was committed." A flne alone la imposed by section 53 aforesaid; ar.i the scction last abov* quoted provides the mode and the only mode in which the state's part of that flne can be recovered, namely, by presentment or indictment, such flne not being imposed In a case mentioned in section 219 of chapter 50. Now. section 2, of chapter 36 shows conclusively, it seems to me. that It was uol the intention of the legislature to confer upon an Informer a remedy for the recovery of his part of a flne that the state does not enjoy for the recov ery of its pari; Dut tnai ootn recoveries should be in one and the same proceeding. This section provides: "Although a law may allow an Informer or person prospcutingr. to have a part of a fine, the whole thereof shall go to the state for the support of free schools, unless the name of such lnforpier or prosecutor be endorsed on or written at the foot of the presentment at the time it is made, or of the indictment before it is presented to the grand Jury, etc. It is claimed, however, on behalf of the said M. W. Bird, that the prosecuting attorney of this county, after having been duly notified that the petitioner, Kate Bartolla. had money loaned which she bad failed to return for taxation as required by section 59, of chapter 29, refused to take any action In the matter; and that by reason of such refusal the justicc acquired Jurisdiction to render the Judgment complained of. But that claim Is wholly unsupported hir nnv statutory authority, and with out such authority a Justice of the peace can exercise *10 civil Jurisdiction whatever; 12 Enc. PI. & Pra. 669. In West vs. Rawson, 40 W. Va. 480. It was held: "The five dollars' forfeit prescribed by law (section 37, chapter 44, code), to be paid by the proprietor of a grist-mill to his customer for taking more toll than allowed by the statute, may be recovered In a civil aotion proceeding before a Justice of the peace."' That was an action, however.in which there was no informer, and for the recovery of a penalty in which the atate had no Interest whateyer, A the whole thereof, under the express terras of the statute under which the action was brought, went to the party injured. Under these circumstances, the statute having provl/laH n/\ nfW rpmodv. thl> MUft VerV properly held that a recovery might be had in a civil action before a justice of the peace. But the principle there an. nounced has no application to this case. For the foregoing reasons a writ of prohibition must be awarded aa prayed for. VEHDdCT FOR MRS. WHARTON. Given Yesterday at Noon?Motion for a New Trial Was Made. Yesterday Just before the capltol clock rang out the noon hour, the jury in the | case of Mrs. Lydia, Wharton vs. the executors of the estate of Jacob Snyder, , deceased, came in, and announced that it had arrived at a verdict, which awarded to Mrs. Wharton the sum of I Riff Ttiu ntlnrnftva fnr the CXOCUtOM promptly made a motion lor a new trial, which Is to be argued on Monday before Judge Faull. Mrs. Wharton sued for 18,500. After the Jury had been out bo long It was believed that there would be a disagreement or a verdict for the defense. Mrs. Wharton was warmly congratulated by many friends upon the outcome of the trial. THE MYSTERY CLEARED. The Martin's Ferrv fcaby desertion case was cleared up by CoDtala Bennett last night.

Going the rounds of the press la an Item stating that the Royal Baking PdWder Company 1? the largest advertiser In America. Of coarse,^the business Itself must be an enormous one to justify so grcat an expenditure In publicity. There is no fallacy more dangerous than that success can be gained by advertising an article of Indifferent merit. But, given an article of highest quality, like Royal Baking Powder, which, when the housekeeper has once usedt she finds If she desires the be? food, she oannot do without, then the greatest measure of success Is attained by keeping it continuously defore the public. Ofeatmerit and good advertising are both essential to make a product a great success. The Royal Baking Powder, possessing the first, its proprietors have wisely used the second-, and the result is apparent throughout the land. The Royal company believe that there is no medium for advertising like the newspapers, since in these enlightened days everybody reads them. UltU.
