that towards the slayer of her husband

THE MISSISSIPPI OVEIU'LUffS.
A despatch from Helena, Arkansas,
dated February 19th says: Thero is no
abatement of the disasters that have
overtaken tho planters of tho Mississippi
valley, caused by tho overllow of tho
Mississippi river between Memphis and
Yicksburg. For three weeks it has
rained almost daily, until the los3 to
dwellings, stock and lauds, cannot now
bo properly estimated. There have been
innumerable breaks iu tho levees, and
tho outlook at present is anything but
hopeful. Cattle and hogs havo been
drowned by the hundreds. Barns havo
bseu swept away and their contents
wasted, and tho mules and horses mo
suffering. Tho loss to tho planters by
theso mishap cannot but havo its effects
on their facilities for putting iu a crop
for a year. This condition of affairs ex

llltl FIIIH IN MASSACIIIISBTTS.
Haverhill, Massachusetts, was visited
by a terriblo conflagration last Saturday
night which destroyed over sixty build
ings, most of them occupied by business
firms. Two thousand people arc out of
employment and soveral families nro
homeless. Tho loss is estimated at 82,
000,000. Several lives wero lost.
Haverhill, tho scene of this disastrous
conflagration, is n town of 10,000 inhab
itants, nt tho head of navigation on the
Merrimack river, about thirty-three miles
north of Boston. Tho town has numer
ous manufacturing establishments, prin
cipally ot boots and shoes, hats and caps,
woollen goods and over wear.
TIip Pennsylvania Military Academy
Tho Pennsylvania military academy
at Chester was burned to tho ground
last week, Thursday evening. The (ire
originated in tho laboratory, but from
what cause is unknown. Tho cadets
saved nil of their personal effects, and all
of tho property of tho stato and govern
ment was saved, as was tho creator por
tion of tho property of the academy, but
it was subsequently damaged by tho rain
which commenced fallini: soon after
wards. Tho total loss is about $-'00,000,
and tho insurance about S75,000. Tho
cadets, 1111 in number, were nil supplied
with funds by Col. Hyatt, and a great
many of them left lor their homes.
Tho member of tho Legislature who
introduces and succeeds iu making into
a law a bill for tho special punishment
ot wito-bcaters, will gain lamo lor him
self and win the eternal gratitude of a
largo portion ot tho population. At near
ly every term of court held in this county
husbands aro up for trial on either a
chargo of wife desertion or for brutal
treatment, or both. In nlno cases out of
teu ho is convicted of assault and battery
and sent to jail for thirty or sixty days
iu default ot bail or bond that ho will
contribute so much per week for tho sup
port of his wifo and children. Imprison
ment on a charge of assault aud battery
is a failure, becauso it inflicts a heavier
punishment iu many instances upon the
wife and dependent children than it docs
on the criminal himself. Ho goes to jail
for a term, during which time he is
abundantly fed and comfortably provid
ed for, while they aro deprived of the
necessaries of life In somo instances a
prosecution does not follow tho acts of
these brutal men, becauso the women
run tho risk of further maltreatment
rather than cut off by their own tcstimo
ney tho sources of their bread. In our
opinion the most effectual modo of sup
pressing tho barbarians who beat their
wives is tho introduction of tho whip
ping post. Xor should this kind of
punishment bo confined to wife beaters.
It should include tho young men who
drag unmarried girls into court to ap
pear against them on a charge of F. &
B. J-Jaston Aryus.
Landlord and Tenant.
a notable oasl i)i:cim:i tub second
time nv Tin: suphemi: corirr.
Tho Supreme Court has rendered an
interesting decision in tho caso of Auer
against Penn. In 1875 John Auer,
hotel proprietor at Philadelphia
became surety on a written leaso
for live years. Two years later the ten
ant moved out and a claim was mado
against Auer ns surety. Auer dofeuded
himself on tho ground that tho landlord
had accepted the key aud released both
tho tenaut and tho surety. Tho agent
for Mr. Penn, tho hndlord, however,
testified that tho tenant, whose name
was Brown, moved out of the houso be
foro notifying him of tho moving, then
came to his ollice and asked him to tako
tho keys. Tho agent refused. A man
who came with Brown attempted to ex
plain things, but tho agent ordered him
not to interfere.. Brown then throw the
keys on tho desk and ran out with his
Thero wero two jury trials, and twice
tho caso went to tlio Supremo Court.
Tho decision just rendered affirms tho
decision of tho lower court, and Auer
will havo to pay several years rent, con
siderable costs," witness fees and other
expenses. Justice Faxson, who deliver
ed tho opiuion of the Court, says : "No
thing is better settled in Pennsylvania
than that a tenant for years cannot ro
leaso himself from his liability under his
covenant to pay rent, by vacating tho de
mised premises during the term aud
sending tho key to tho landlord. Tho
latter may tako tho key, rent tho houso
aud notify tho tenant that ho will hold
him for any loss. There is no proof iu
this caso that the landlord accepted tho
surrender and released tho tenant. On
the contrary, tho proof is clear that ho
declined to do so, and notified tho de
fendant that ho would hold him for the.
rent. This ho did every time. Ho sub
sequently rented tho property. Yet it is
asserted that this renting raised a pre
sumption of a release, but tho burden of
jiroof is on a party who seeks to bo re
leased from his covenant. The renting
of tho premises, under tho ciroumstnuces,
in this caso raises no such presumption.
It was manifestly to tho interest of tho
tenant that tho premises should bo rent
ed, as it would lessen tho sum ho would
havo to pay.
A UUMIS-HELL 01STI11CT.
Tho leading speech over tho roapiwr.
tionuient hill at Washington last wiik
was that of Mr. Beltzhoover on his
amendment requiring States to bo dis
tricted without gerrymandering. Mr
Beltzhoover wim of tho opinion that i
this could bo accomjilished it would bo
nioro important and efficient in securing
i list representation to tho peoplo than
any measure which lias ever been enact
ed. There has been a great deal ot earn
est contention about tho loss of a single
representative iu a few of tho States.
But what (lilferenco would it make to
tho great Commonwealth of Pennsylvan
ia whether sho gets twenty-eight or
twcnty.nino members, if her Legislature
can so distribute tho number a practi
cally to disfranchise ouu-half of her citi
zens and leavo them without representa
tion f This unfair distribution of mem
bers is, said tho speaker, no- new offense
in tho servilo satrap of tho nvodern boss.
No respect is paid to tho ratio of repro
scntatioii or tho contiguity of territory.
Counties aro torn Into fragments mid
distributed by townships and half town
ships to moot tho exigencies of the vilest
partisan frauds. Counties widely separ
ated aro joined by narrow strips of land
running through intervening counties,
and, thus connected, nro called contigu
ous territory and erected into districts.

Thus we have, continued tho sneaker,
a district, without n parallel in tho
famous history of fraudulent apportion
ment, in the shape of a dumb bell, gath
ering up in its peculiar serpentine con
tiguous area about nino thousand Dem
ocratic majority. This district, as it ap
pears in tlio political text book, compos
ed of fivo counties nnd parts of two coun
ties, is bad enough, but as it appears on
tho map and to tho peoplo of tho Stnto
it is tho mastcrpieco of that matchless
band of political conspirators who havo
run the machino in Pennsylvania for
years and beforo whoso sublime genius
for fraud their fceblo imitators in all tho
other States grow green with envy.
l'AY OF TIIeTkOISIjATUUE.
tiii: sui'iir.Mi: couiit nuvEitsKs judoi:
Tho legislative salary question raised
by tlio lion. Charles b. Wolfe ha3 been
decided by the supremo court in favor
of tho legislators, who will now receive
tho extra fivo hundred dollars. The
question before tho court was in relation
to tho construction to bo placed upon
tho word salary, which occurs in section
eight of tho constitution : "Tho members
of the general assembly shall receive
such salary and mileage for regular aud
special sessions as shall bo fixed by law,
and no other compensation whatever for
scrvico upon committees or otherwise.
The question, which was really raised
in 1874, when an act was passed giving
the legislators S1.0U0, and SIO a day
extra for every day's service over ono
hundred, not exceeding fifty, was not
brought beforo the courts for determina
tion until 1881 when llenrv W. Palmer
caused consternation by promulgating
an opinion that the extra per diem allow
ance was unconstitutional. On tho
strength of this opinion Stato Treasurer
Butler refused to pay over to tho legisla
tors nioro than $1,000. In order to reach
tho treasurer by mandamus tho anxious
legislators qtucKiy passed an act giving
the court ot common pleas ot JJatinhiii
county jurisdiction to issue writs of man
damus to statu olhccrs. Under this a po
tition was presented by Charles S. Wolfo
asking tor a mandamus to compel the
payment ot the extra compensation.
A1IU A-'ltllMllllI VUUllbt Will I, 111 UU Ulilll
ion by Judge Pearson, refused to grant
a peremptory mandamus, holding that
tho word salary, in tho constitution,
meant a fixed round sum for a specific
term, and that tho $1,000 was tho salary
which tno members wero entitled to, and
that tlieretorc tho extra per diem com
pcusation, being above and beyond tho
salary, infringed tho constitution. An
appeal was taken to tho supremo court,
and on Monday morning a decision was
rendered reversing tho decision of tho
Dauphin county court.
Justice Sharswood delivered tho opiu
ion of tho court. Ho says: To justify a
court in pronouncing an act ot tho legis
latino unconstitutional and void, either
in whole or in part, it must bo ablo to
vouch somo exception or prohibition
clearly oxoressed or necessarily implied.
The doubt is to bo resolved in favor of
the constitutionality of the act. This
rule of construction is so well settled by
authority that it is unnecessary to cito
cases. Where tho contention is as to the
meaning of tho word, tho rule is that if
any meaning, technical or othorwisc,
will sustain tho exerciso of tho power, it
is sufficient. On the other hand, if tho
strict and legal meaning would havo the
offect to limit or destroy, whilo some
proper acceptation ot tho word would
support tho act, it must bo resorted to,
llo then goes on to show that both
words, salary and wages, mean necessar
ily tho same, and tho constitution did not
mean to prohibit a per diem allowanco
when the word salary wa3 used.

lli lrnnl Trint.
Tlio latest sensation of our town is Hie exit
of two of our young business men and the
simultaneous disappearance of over three
thousand dollars In notes. m. H. Tiittlo
nnd K. U. Jlemlcnlmh have for the last year
been doing a thriving general Insurance bust
ncss In this phice, with a branch oMlcc nt
Benton. The innln ofllco was hi the room
occupied by Snulre Knonymd the same safe
was used by both parties. iotes given to
Tattle & Mcmlenhnll in payment of policies
were generally bought Tjy Mr. Knorr, nnd up
to Monday the number held by Iilm and un
paid was about 3,200. Last week the Squire
notified two of the parties ngnlnst whom he
held notes that they were now due, but was
surprised to receive answers from both one
In Tunklmnnock and ono near Shlckshlmiy
saying thnt they had not only never given
such notes but did not know cither Tattle or
Mcmlenhnll. From this It would appear thnt
the notes were forgeries, nnd to still further
strengthen this opplnlon Is the fact that when
Mr. Knorr opened his safe on Tuesday morn
ing the notes were all gone and Mcnueniinll,
who had been In town the night before, has
not been 3cen since. The notes referred to
appear to be mainly from parties in Uenton,
Sugarloaf, Jacksonaud Madison townships
n this county, and in Tunklmnnock and vi
chilly. IlesMes this transaction with Sipilre
Knorr it appears that dlllercnt persona
throughout the town have been stuck to the
tune of from 15 to $100: making In )1 be
tween live and six hundred dollars. These
youngmcn had the confidence of all who knew
them, and this sudden exposure takes every.
body by surprise. Another warning to young
men to guard their every action lest greed
for gain lead them to acquire it by dishonest
methods. licrwkh Independent Feb. 10i.
