Attest : II. V. White, Sec'y.
The grand jury last week ignored sever-
al bills against tramps without healing all
the witnesses for the commonwealth, and
a petit jury acquitted tho only tramp who
wns Indicted. Is it to be understood
from this that the trump law is not to be
enforced In this county? Tho law was
passed after the tramp nuisance became
intolerable, and was necessary for the pro
tectlon of the public against the demands
of lazy and Impertinent vagrants. It may
be that these jurors thought that if it be
came known Hint tramps would bo put in
the jail and kept for several weeks at pub
lie expense that they would come here in
great numbers in order to bo fed. If this
be the proper view, it is singular that since
tho arrests wcro made scarcely a tramp has
been here. But If It becomes known that
they will not be convicted, it seems to us that
the actlcn of tho jury is equivalent to an
invitation to tramps to come hero for a
brief sojourn in jail, having tho assuranco
that no sentence will be passed upon them.
What wa needed was the conviction of at
least one tramp, and the Imposition of tho
heaviest penally allowed by law, and then
there would have been no further costs for
the county to pay for keeping tho prisoners
from tlio time of arrest until court.

that tho coping on tho wall of the jail should

cd at another time.
Mr. Charles Krug appeared and claimed
pay tor lumber tor wulcli till Jones tiau
been paid In Dec. 1884. Tho matter is to
referred lo tho Solicitor. Mr. Krug then
complained that the 25 foot Street from
East St., to Catharine had been partly
closed by Mr. F. P. McBridc.
The commissioner of highways was or-
dcrcd to notify Mr. McBridc to open tho
street and to see thai It was done In side
of ten days.
Mr. Joseph Wcldcl appeared and com
plained nf being annoyed by geese belong
ing in tho neighborhood, whereupon the
President was ordered to direct the High
Constablo to notify owners of gecso to
have them confined, so that tlicy do not
annoy tho ucighboihood j otherwise they
shall be disposed of according to Sec. 8 of
ordinance No. 1.
A petition signed by a number of citizens
was next read, staling that tlicy were

Normal School ground, nnd ordered filed,
The commissioner of highways stated that

Tax rates were next considered. Mes

Moyer, Sharpless and Rupert 4 votes, lost.
Mr. Sharpless proposed a 12 mill rate, Ster
ling a 0 mil! rate, Ilagcnbuch 10, Sterner 8,

Some of the councilmen contended that

others said that was tho only way to col-
lect tho money necessary to bear expenses
of the coming ycar.statlng that tho Town is
already deeply In debt, and unless suffi
cient taxes are levied 11 will bo compelled
to go deeper In debt.
Tho President and Secretary nre appoint

A building permit was granted to Mrs,

Died near Van Camp, on tho 4th lnst.,
John C. Yost, aged 23 years, 2 months and
This young man nnd his brother Nevin
A., were engaged in teaching at Plymouth,
I and wcro among the first who were seized
by tho epidemic of that ill-fated town.
Over ono week previous to their return
home, they wcro feeling badly and scarce-
ly able to teach. They were obliged finally
I to quit their post of duty and return home j
I ono to die, tho Jotbcr wo hope to recover.
The death of this young man has cast a
1 gloom over tho Van Camp community.
I John was a robust, social and intelligent
young man. Being a leading spirit lu tho
neighborhood, lie did much by his example
I and precept to impart a moral and rcllg-
tons sentiment to his associates. Having
spent the last few years In tho school room
either ns pupil or teacher, ho camo lu con
I tact with many young people, who became
attached to him j for to know him was but
to lovo him His untimely death has awak-
ened sympathy and grief in mauy hearts,
I Wo can scarcely reallzo how much wo aro
attached to others until they aro separated
from us by death. Though cut down in
the prlmo of life, he will still live lu tho
memory of his many endeared af ociatcs
who will carry on their heart, the badgo of
mourning, but will also cherish the hope of
mcctlug each other beyond tho river of
death. It is said that tho Intelligence of
his death produced thu profoundest grief
among Ids already saddened scholars ut
This young brother was a member of tho
Reformed Church at Bt. James. Iu Infancy
ho was consecrated by his parents to tto
Lord in holy baptism. In youth-hood ho
took a course of Catechetical Instruction
and at the ugo of 13 years ho received tho
solemn right of confirmation by tho laying
on of Imiuls. From that tlmo he had been
an active worker in the church, Ue adorn
cd his profession with a holy walk und
conversation, His pastor was proud of
him as a church member. Rut his place lu
tho church, 'Subbath School, choir and
prayer meeting Is now vacant. Ho has
however only passed from tho church rll-
itant to tho church triumphant. Who
among tho St., James young men will tako
his placo and prove themselves to, .worthy
of commendation? Mny his mantle fall up.
Ills funeral look place on Wednesday,
and he was Inferred In tho St. James Ccm.
ctery. The attendance wns unusually latgc.
The presenco of his associates from near
and far Indtcato that he was loved much
and loved by many. If 'tears havo an ut
terance, they proclaimed on this occasion
that there were many sad and sorrowing
hearts picscnt. And when the final view
of tho remains was given, many seemed
to tnrry at the visage of ono so dear! as
though they wcro loath to give the final
farewell look. Tlio coffin was mounted by
a beautiful cross of flowers sent by friends
from Bloomsburg. Before death entered
that onco happy household tho unbroken
family circle numbered six brothers and
two sisters. But now thcro Is a missing
link which however will jolu them to the
family above. As In tho ascension of our
Lord tho human family Is represented In
honven by llio glorified humanity of Christ,
so we trust this onco happy nnd united
family Is now represented In heaven by a
part of Itself the absent one. To the be-
reaved family nnd mourning friends we
hereby extend our sympathies nnd prayers.

solemn admonition s "Be yo nlso ready,
