The charge against Hlchard Paisoweky, superintendent of F Bimnenlhal & Co , for violating the city ordinances by ob it rooting the sidewalk at the morocco factory, at Chsstnut and Monroe streets, came up before Judge Ball In Municipal Court last evening. Witnesses testified to the fact that carts were backed on to the sidewalk and allowed to stand there for from twenty to forty five minutes The drippings of lime and hair defiled the sidewalks and roadway, and people residing in that vicinity ware very much Inconvenienced On the other side, the manager of the factory and a number of his employes testified that the wagons were not permitted to stand there longer than necessary, and the pavement was cleaned after each load was sent off. After hearing both sides Judge Ball decided that it was a case where a few had to snffer in order that many might be benefited, and dismissed the charge.
