A Lureeuy cbm -One lirunU-Tne
Peanut Tenders in Trouble.
The polloe office last evening was lit
erally packed and a large crowd unable
to secure admittance remained on the
oitside and glanced through the win
do re.
two prominent business men,
butcher the other a .shoemaker, were
obliged to occupy a seat in the prison
ers' dock,as the jam nt surging human
ity was too much for them. Scarcely a
night passes but what a large crowd as
sembles at the police court, many at
tending out of mere curiosity.
The first case tried wse that of a hoy
by tbe name of John Craven who was
arraigned on the charge of larceny.
Fro n the evidence given it was sbn »n
Ilia' Victor Hughe?, a lad twelve years
of age, was met yesterday afternoon at
Third and West streets by the prisoner
and another boy. Craven first ashed
Hughes fora piece of tobacco, when the
lauer informed him that he did not
use the weed Craven doubting Hughes'
veracity commenced to search him, tak
ing out of his pockets a pocket book,
while the other boy, whose name is
Mullen, abstracted a peu-knife, but at
terward returned the same.
Craven also returned the pocket hook
hut minus 30 cents which it contained
Officer Bernhardt testified to arresting
the lad also to his admitting to tbe
thelt, and his mother gave the officer
the 30 cents. While the trial was go
ing on Craven was in the dock crying
bitterly. As he bad been arrested be
fore His Honor was accustomed to the
hoy's tears and he held him in $100
bail for court.
James McMahan wa? fined 50 cbd'b
and costs for being drunk.
* Tho last case aud the principal one
was but an initiatory step in a wai
on the venders of peanuts and other
de ictcies. The defendant whose name
is Lorenzo Cagnasia, is an Italian who
has a stand at Second and Market
streets, in front of Mr. Babcock's shoe
stor.-. Lorenzo undoubtedly has not
resided in this country long, and as a
consequence cannot speak the English
language, like many of the Italians.
The defendant was charged with viola
ting section 2 of the city ordinance in
relation to certain nuisances. The fol
lowing is the section:
Sec. 2 It shall not bo lawful for any per
son or persons to erect er hive any booth
stand, stall or place In or upon any ot the
footways, streets, lanes, alleys
houses of this city, lor the purpose of expos
ing o-< fieri ng tor sale any goods, wares i r
mtrhacndl.se, whatsoever, (unless authorized
by an ordlnanceol tbeclty) or a special per
mit from the C ty Council ltr such privilege
tint bad and obtained.
Lorenzo had an interpreter with him
who communicated the ordinance to
him. The interpreter reported that
defendant admitted to keeping a stand
yet he had a State License, and pro
duced the same. The interpreter fur
ther stated that the defendant was not
aware that he was violating a city ordi
nance and in an innocent manner said,
"I'will stay if you let me, if not I w ill
go away." City Solicitor Macallister,
was present during the trial and repre
sented the City. His Honor sentenced
Loi enzo to pay a fine of $5 and costs.
As the witnesses were leaving the court
room David Lemon in an indignant
manner turning to Lorenzo said: "We
will have you up to morrow if you sell
at.d the next day also. The defendant
on being asked the amount was in
formed by Sargeant Whelan that it was
The Sargeant afterwards said that
the lawyer's fee was $3, making the
amount $20.80. After some persisten
cy Lorenzo paid the amount and left
the Court room. The following are the
names of the witnesses summoned, but
as the defendant plead guilty, there
was no evidence given : David Lemon,
Thomas Burk, D. E. Buckingham,
Charles Kyle, William Morrow, George
Gray, J. L. Carpenter, James Bradford,
Wm. F. Brick, E. K. Crawford, George
Marple, John Trapliagen, William
Miller and John Guthrie.
The case of Andrew Cardinello, a
peanut vender, at Fourth and Market
streets, was postponed until this even
So great was the throng that

In the U. S. Senate yest-iday Mr.
Randolph, from the Committee on Mili
tary Affairs, reported the bill foi the
relief of Generl Fitz John Porter. Mr.
Lrgar presented a minority report. Tue

of 1812 who now receive le3s tLan $15

the statutes in relation to immediate
transportation of dutable goods, and by
Mr. Teller (by request) to regulate
Indian affairs. The j >iut resolution
withdrawing the legal-tender power of
United States notes was taken up and
Mr. Bayard spoke at length in support
of it. At the conclusion of his remarks
the Senate went into executive session,
aud, when the doors were reopened,
In the House Mr. Caldwell, of Ky.,
from the Committee on Private Land
Claims, asked leave to report a resolu
tion instructing the Secretary of the
Interior not to consider any applica
tion for a patent to tbe Fanoohe Grande

The U. B, Dot eminent Officials or
Philadelphia ■alien Raid 1'poa
the Properlx of tho Readlaa
Railroad Comma? for Unpaid
Yesterday morning Depnty U. S.
Revenue collector John F. Cline, acting
under instructions of U. S. Internal
Revenue collector James Ashworth,went
to I'orl Richmond and seized 22 locomo
tives belonging to the Reading Railroad
Company for theuon-payment of Inter
nal Revenue tax. It appears that dur
ing the past year the Reading Railroad
company, as shown by their last annu
al report, have issued upwards of $5,
000,000 of wages certificates, which the
government officials held, under the
law ,to par'ake of the character of circu
lation, and, as such, liable to a tax of
10 per centum. This tax has not been
paid, the formal notification of Indebt
edness from the collector meeting with
no response from the Railroad Compa
Eleven engines that were actually in
nse were among the number seized, hut
the company were granted the privi
lege of ruuning them between Second
street anil tbe wharf at Fort Richmond.
The Government claim for taxes has
not yet been made against the entire
amount of wagee certificates issued, but
only against the first lot, amonntiug to
abont $1,000,000 on which the taxes
are about $100,000. The property
seized is advertised for sale by the U.
S. Internal Revenue Collector, but the
company have twenty days within
which to pay up and stop |the sale.
They cannot enter security for the pay
ment of the claim, or be in a position
to contest its validity unless payment
is first made.
On the part of the railroad company
it is said that the first issue of the cer
tificates was in December, 1878. They
were in the form of promissory notes,
iunniug for six mouths aud hearing in
terest. They were redeemable at ma
turity, or could also be used in the
payment of debts in either the Reading
Railway Company or Reading Coal and
Iron Company, and it was that clause,
being payable to either of these compa
nies, that led the Government to make
the assessment npon it. The matter of
the seizure will take its legal course,
and a hearing will probably be had at
an early day. The operations of the
road meanwhile are not beiDg interfered
with to any extent.
