that tho consumer (those who buy

from the fact that they do not keep

Opinion of Judge Hare, of Phila
delphia. Ho Hold That 1'mirt IlivW the Vmvrr to
Impost- Itestrlitlinn. Anil Tluit Some
Must Take Their l.lirnse with nn
ilillon. fir Nol at All.
Judge Hare handed down an opin
ion Jan. 23th. which in effect affirms
the power of the court in granting
liquor licenses to add to them stipu
lations as to the manner in which
the licensee shall carry on business,
and (in failure to do so, or to carry
out the order of the court to have
the license revoked. The power of
the court to do this has been a legal
problem, and no decision has been
rendered on the question, except in
the present case.
The facts are these : One Gerst
Iauer, who had lioen licensed with a
stipulation that he would close his
place at a certain hour of the night,
and would not allow liquor to lie
taken from his premises in " grow
lers," disobeyed these injunctions,
and the Law and Order Society of
Philadelphia instituted proceedings
to have his license revoked. At the
hearing (ierstlauer's counsel raised
the broad point that, the court hav
ing no authority to impose restric
tions in granting licenses, cannot
revoke them on failure by tho li
censee to carry them out. Judge
Hare in a long opinion reviewing
the facts and the law, holds that the
court has tho power. Ho says:
"There are other cases when the
question depends on circumstances
and should lie left to tho judgment
of the court on the facts as given in
Liquor taken to disorderly houses,
or even to the homes of working-
men and women in any form, and
esjK'cially in kettles, gives an op
portunity for practices which are
held in check in places open to the
public and that may lie visited by
the police. The evil sometimes
takes a different slmpe. Boys club
their money and an acquiantanco or
companion takes it to a saloon and
brings back a kcttleful of lieer, which
is drunk in common in an adjacent
alley or open lot. Tho practice be
comes habitual and excess of drink
leads to vice in other forms.
He says there is n gap in the pre
sent license system which cannot be
closed by the legislature without
stopping the retail trade in liquor
and that tho remedy lies in n judici
ous use of tho powers conferred by
the courts, in adding or imposing
conditions and stipulations as to
how the business shall bo con
ducted. The Mozart Concert in Honesdale.
Tho Independent speaking of the
Mozart Symphony Concert recently
given in Honesdalo gives the follow
ing highly complimentary notice to
Miss Gumaer :
Miss Gumaer has a wonderful
voice of wide compass. And the
liest thing about her singing is the
distinct utterance. Every word of
her songs could be understood to
tho uttermost corner of the house.
Her tones are clear as tho bell, her
expression grand and the sentiment
she throws into her work carries
her audience with her.
Crushed to Death by t Tree.
J. D. Rinehart, seventy-five years

been cut down and Mr. Rinehart

acted as a prop, when the body of

Th. Old Story of a Fool nml a Innfrnilil
On January 20, John Baldwin, a
boyalxiutlft years oldf'fton of Jie
proprietor of the Livingston Manor

pointed n pistol at his mother, when
the weapon was discharged, and the
ball struck her on the forehead, fol
lowing tho skull around and coming
out on top of her head, hoppily in
flicting only a severe scalp wound.
Of course ho didn't know it was

son, brother, lover or nny body else,
points a pistol or a gun at you in
sport, and otherwise of course, to
incontinently knock him down as
hard as you can, and just as quickly

Ho returned during tho evening and

then warned the individual that if
he did not respond she would shoot.
Failing to do so, she fired, shot her
brother, the charge taking effect in
his right arm, which it became neces
sary subsequently to amputate.

MAYOR CARLEY OPPOSED.
The nnlnm Enlw mil Would Itrdure
Revenue From Fxrlnp.
The Now York Herald, this morn
ing, publishes telegrams from 3 4
Mayors of cities and towns through
out New York state, giving their po
sition on the Raines excise bill now
pending at Albnny. Of the 34 May
orsbut 10 are in favor of the bill.
Our own Mayor, Mr. John B. Corley
opposes it, as will bo seen from thf
following published in the Herald :
Port Jervis N. Y., Jan. 23, isiifi.
To thr Editor of the Hf.halii :
Tho town of Doerpork would lose
$2,795. I am decidedly opposed to
the Raines bill. J. B. Cakley
The ground of opposition in nearly
all cases is the reduction of revenue
which, it is assumed, would result
from raising tho license fee and the
consequent reduction of the number
of saloons. Union.
The Union characterizes tho above
as an absurd statement, and says
$2,795 represents the total excise
revenue of Deerpark for 192 ; and
asks if Mr. Corley moons that none
of tho hotel or saloon-keepers of the
town could nfford to pay tho license
fee of $200 provided for by the Raines
bill. Tho Raines law provides that
one-half of tho excise fund shall go
to the state and the other half to the
Tho Brooks low in Pennsylvania
fixes the license fee at $150 in
boroughs of which sum $90 is paid
in the borough treasury. Cities
pay a larger sum in proportion, and
while the number of saloons and
hotels may have been slightly de
creased yet the revenue derived is
much greater under a high than a
low license. '-"--
A School Teacher in Trouble.
Miss Estey Hornlieek, daughter of
tho late James Horn heck, of Monta
gue, who is teaching her third term
in Union school district, in Sandys
ton, was summarily dissmissed by
the Board of Education down there
at their meeting, on Saturday, Jan
uary 18th, at Centrevillo. The
Board's action may hove lx'on just,
but their actit n is severely criticised
in this town,, any way . The legality
of tho conduct of the meeting is also
questioned by some, and without
a doubt the case will go to Superin
tendent Hill for a final decision. If
one teacher can bo discharged on

order, it behooves the teachers to
keep their eyes open lieforo moro

for Miss Hornbeck in Montague.
If the account of tho meeting of
the board, tho methods employed,
and the general conduct of its
members is correctly reiwrted by

would soem to tho average reader
that Board of Education in Sandy-
ston is sadly in need of some instruc

The Folly of Matrimonial Advertising
An item in the Philadelphia Press
of Jan. 18 says : A young woman by
the name of Augusta Sullivan, was
found wandering around the streets
of Reading, Pa., in a destitute con
dition. She was sent to tho Homo
of the Good Shepherd to bo cored
for. Her story was that she came
from Pond Eddy, N. Y., and that
she had been led to correspond with
a young man by tho name of John
Zerby through an advertisment m a
newspaper, and after keeping up
the correspondence for some time
he hail written her to come to Read
ing, and ho would marry her. She
went, but he failed to meet her, and
she was unable to find him. Zerby
admitted tho correspondence, but
denied tho promise. Ho said she
had suggested marriage, but he
thought it was only a leap year joke.
