It took all of Saturday to hear the proof in the case against Porter Wear- en charged with the killing of Grant Leavell, wh!ch occurred last county court day. A great many witnesses were examined and the testimony con fl cted on several points. Wcaren was hs.d in the sum of SjOO, which was promptly given. Awful. In the last ten days Battle Bow, Lan caster's negro settlement, has certainly been on the war path. Since last Mon day it" has been the seme of a killing, a serious cutting, a shooting, one wo man kneeled insenible with a beer bottle, and anothers eye knocked out. To say that this is a disgrace to any community is putting itmiddly, indeed If commodore Dewey could shell this settlement it would hs a gods-send for Lancaster.

These connections are of inestimabl value, as a vast amount of business transacted betwocn the two cities.

Sunday on "Battle Row." Sunday Belle Griffin and Mary Den ny, two soiled doves of Battle Row, had a bifllenlty in which the latter as badly slashed with a knife. 1 he ounded woman is in a precarious condition. The Gritlin woman is il and will not be tried until there is c.iangc in her victim s condition. On the same day Theodore Young shattered a beer bottle over the crani um of Liza Ried, also a denizen of the Jhute." The woman is a terror to the other negroes living down there and no one seems to blame Theodore or smashing her. Stewart Humber and his wife, also f this same notorious settlement, were n joying a pleasant jag and Humber struck the woman in the head with something, almost knockiug out an eye. Greatly Discouraged. The band boys are very mr:ch dis couraged over the tact that the peo ple would not patronize the Heywood entertainment and thus help them to buy uni.'orms, and other necessary equipments for their organization he band has never refused to plaj' for anything the people wanted, and uring the summer time has given one, and sometimes two, free concerts a week. The bjys have invested much in the first-class instruments they use that they do not feel like sink ing any more money in the band. They lost about $15 on the Hey woods, and arc now deliberating as to whether they will throw up the sponge and quit. Had the Heywcol show been fraud, the boys would not feel sore, but as they made a heavy guarantee to get it, knowing its superb ranking, they can't help but feel that their ef forts count for naught. Patriotic Lancaster Girls. We, the ladies of Lancaster, who so licited subscriptions to purchase Company Banner for the brave boys who enlisted for the Cuban war, having baen informed that the flag would be of no practical use, and wishing the entire company (both ofli cers and privates), to share alike the funds which represent our efforts in their behalf, have deemed it both wise and expedient to place to the credit of said company, in the Citizens National Bank of Lancaster, to be known as reuet Junu, tne amount oi money which has been contributed to be used for the relief of the unfortunate sick or wounded. Hoping to thereby estab lish a nucleus which will be liberally supplemented by the citizens of the various counties represented by youn men in said company. Misses Dove Harris, Jennie Burn side.

The Hey woods appeared at the Court House Saturday night, and eve ryone present says they gave the best entertainment ever presented in Lan caster. Mr. ney wood is far above the average in his line, and is a whole show by himself. The violin solo by Miss Dresher. the singing of Mr. De Bray, and the piano playing of Miss Steele was pronounced by competent julges to be of an unusually high or der. The Record takes great pleas ure in recommending the Heywoods. They give an entertainment which is worth double the price they charge. JaclcAstor, Esq.
