Tho Otrroo Dai'y Record of January
13lh nay e: Last evening opened the en
gagement of tho Bennett-Moiilton Opera
Co. at Wilson Opera House. The initial
performance was tho "Mascot" and It is
generally conceded that this popular opera
nover has been so well produced In Owego
before. Tho company is well balanced,
handsomely costumed, strong in chorus,
and the various parts were unusually In
telligently Interpreted. The company ex
eels In its acting as well as in Its singing.
Bloomsburg Opera House, January 80,

Wllllard Spenser's popular comic opera,
"The Little Tycoon," was presented at Ihe
Danvilln Opera House Tueiday evening by
the enmpauy under the management of
the author and was greeted by a largo aud
ience. It is a very good production, al
though not the best that has been made ot
the opera; It is perhaps the best that has
yet been on the road. Mr. Bpcnscr carries
a large tioupe, comprising in all 52 persons,
Including a good-sized and excellent or.
chestra. The costumes used in the per.
formance are specially fine. Quite a largo
number ot people from Bloomsburg went
down to see It, many driving down, while
a number went down In the cars and re
mained over night.
Tho very latest thing out In the way of
stationery is an envelope ot leather, which
can be locked and scut through tho malls
ithout being tampered with by poBtofflco
clerks. It will doubtless come into general
uso as a safe- covering for lovers' epistles.
The locked envclopo Is thus descrlbedi It
Is of leather alllgbtor skin or morocco.
Upon the back of the envelope there is a
tin staple ot gold or silver, over which
fltB snugly a link of similar material at-
tocheJ to tho flap, and this Is secured by a
dainty little pad-lock with a Yale lock.
Upon the face Is an open pocket lor the In-
aertlon of a card bearing the address and
the necessary postage stamp. Two tiny
keys accompany each envelope,

Tho Farmers' Institute at Mlllvlllc last
week was tho means of bringing a number
nt people Into tho town who had never
before visited there. Mtllvllto Is certainly
a very pretty town, and becouso of tho
good country surrounding Is a centre of

a nice storo room for his harness, robes
and blankets. Mr. D. F. Herring Is also
In the same business. Jour. Eves with his
reliable farm wagons Is kept busy filling
ortlcrj. V. P. Eves & Mcllcnry have a
large furniture store, and adjoining, Eyer
Allen has recently opened up a boot and
shoo storo. Tho Mlllvlllc planing mill Is
kept busy, and tho creamery reports a
growth with each succeeding month, Tho
citizens all encourage homo enterprise, as
most of them uso the creamery butter and
pronounce It superior to any Iadel made
butter. Tho W. & W. railroad has a
branch running from Eycrsgrovc, termin
ating at Mlllville. Some, trade is carried
from tho surrounding country to Watson
town, since the Introduction of tho rail
road. A number of new houses have becu
built In Mlllville during tho past year In
dicating a continued growth of tho town.

J, I,. Glrtou'B Hotel.
The interior of what was formerly Mr.
Jas. Cadman's furniture warcrnoms, has
been very much changed under tho direct
Hon of Mr. J. L. Girton In fitting It for a
hotel. The large warcroom on first floor
has been separated In two rooms. Tho
first Is finished in birch and will bo used
as tho office. Tho next is a handsome,
large dining room. The walls and coil
Ings of these rooms were neatly papered
and painted by Messrs. Bodlne and Barn
hard. The front of the second floor Is an
elegant parlor, and the remaining rooms
are for boarders. Tho third floor is divid

Many of the rooms are laree enough to ac
comodate several beds upon an emergency.
Mr. Girton can fell proud of his new hotel,
and by keeping a first-class house should

Get all tlielr Money Back.
In 1873, several ot our leading citisens
wero induced to insuro in the New 1ork
Life Insurance Company. They took plain
life policies, at tho lo-vest rate of premium
for the protection ot their families, In
case ot death ; but by tho famous tontioo
principles in uso with that company, pro
vided for settlement with themselves, It

Now, tho time being up, they are offered a
choice ot settlement, paid up lnsurauce,
&c.,cash,to continue at less than half rates,
In every case, tho cash offered exceeds tho
whole amount paid by each. Thus, after
fifteen years insurance, they get all their
money back, and a profit besides.

o'clock when ho canio Into tho court. At
two o'clock tho votco ot court crier Coff.
man announced that the court was In ses

scats R, S. Howell Esq. presented a re
monstranco against granting any licenses,
because! tho publication of tho list of ap

describe tach bouse particularly; and I e
causo the rule of court fixing tho third
Monday of January as the time for hearing

to the acts of assembly concerning licenses.
Judge Hand over-ruled tho motion, on the
ground that It was not filed seven days bo-foro-hSnd
as required by tho rules of court,
that It was not filed In any particular case;
that the publication was all that tho law
required, and that the court had full pow
cr to make a rulo of court fixing a time for
hearing license or to flx4a time without
making any rule.
Tho first case taken up was that of Geo.
W. Klasc, applicant for a hotel llcenso fn
Berwick. To this, a remonstrance had
been filed, setting forth that tho license was
not necessary, and that the applicant was a
man ot intemperate habits. Three wit
nesses were called by tho remonstrants nnd
six by the applicant. Charles Haas one of
the bondsmen in this case asked to be per
mitted to withdraw his name from tho
bond. The court granted a rule to show
causo why he should not bo permitted io
E. 11. Llttlo and Geo. E. Elwell repre
sented the remonstrants, and Col. Freeze
and U. B. Jackson, the applicant.
The case ot M. A. Marklo ot tho samo
place was next heard, C. C. Evans repre
senting tho applicant. To this a remon
strance was also filed. Five witnesses were
heard against, and six for tho llcenso. An
objection was mado that the place for
which llcenso was asked was not described
with the particularity required by tho law,
being described as situated "on the south
erly side of Front street," but Judao Hand
held that this was sufficient In a borough.
When the case wi s finished in was six
o'clock. Both cases wero held under ad
visement. Judge Hand stated his views as follows:
I regret that I cannot stay till these cases
arc disposed of, but I am holding court my
self this week, continued all cases to to
morrow morning. I have expressed to
the associate, judges my views of tho law
coveri ig these cases, and I will state now
publicly my view of tho law in regard to
the granting of licenses. Some remark
was made that the good people of this
county were discouraged last year by rea
son of the action of the associate judges,
some remonstrants thinking that they wcru
not treated with proper consideration. I
think that if members of the bar could Bit
at least one day upon tho bench, determin
ing questions between applicants and re
monstrants, they would find that tuch a
remark was hardly called for, that it is a
difficult matter to dispose of these ques
tions. A judge cannot allow his own private
opinion In regard to temperance to affect
him in one way or tho other in deciding
these matters; the law lays down a clear
rulo for him to follow, as clear as Is laid
down to guide him In tho disposition of
other cases depending upon oral testimony
and upon petitions and remonstrances.
When an old house seeks reliccnsc, the
presumption of law Is in fivor of tho old
honsc, and they who remonstrate against
tho granting of Its application most clearly
establish that tho old house ought not to
bo rcllccnsed; they may do this by testi
mony or by tho number and character of
the petitioners against the granting 'of the
license. The court is obliged to take Into
account the age of the house (tho length of
time for which It has been licensed); and
must weigh tho testimony and come to the
best conclusion it can, beating In mind
that the presumption In favor of tho house
must be rebutted by sufficient testimony
before tho application for license will bn
The presumption Is against a new house
and tho applicant must clearly prove, tlit-t
tho houso Is necessary and the applicant a
tit person having proper accommodations
for tho entertainment of the traveling pub
lic; testimony must be confined to theso
three points, and may bo limited by tho
remonstrance itself to one or to two of
these three. Though there be a number
of remonstrances against an old bouse, the
presumption in Its favor fromlhe length ot
time it has been licensed may sometimes,
taken together with the testimony in favor
of the house, outweigh tha remonstrance,
turn the tcale; and persons sometimes
think that thu remonstrance is treated with
contempt, when, If, they would take into
account tho weight of tho testimony, they
would not como to any such conclusion.
In tbo case ot a new application, it is very
much easier to find that the rcmonstronce
Is sufficient and to refuse the license lu
our district, wo have some places whero
from time immemoiial no llcenso lias been
granted, because the number and charact
er of the remonstrants against it have been
such as to satisfy the court that tne applica
tion for license should be refused. It might
bo different in tiie case of an old house,
whero tha application is sustained by a
large number of tho inhabitants of tbo dis
trict, and persons testify that it Is neces
sary for tho village or township, that its
business requires tho house to be licensed.
I have expressed my views briefly to the
associates here In regard to this case and
will have to leave the disposition of It
The only legal question that can arise is
In regard to the distinction suggested by
counsel for remonstrants for a hotel and an
application for a license; my view Is that
thero Is no difference, Pcoplo who peti
tion for a hotel understand that they peti
tion for a placo to accommodate strangers
and travelers with lodging and food aud (it
they require it) with Intoxicating drinks;
it wltnosscs testify that a hotel is necessary;
they testify that a licemed hotel is necessary
for the accommodation of strangers and
travelers with food and lodging and (If
thoy require It) with a proper amount of
intoxicating drinks. Consequently, we
make no distinction as claimed by tho
counsel; I don't lu my court; and have not
heard of It elsewhere.
Court then adjourned until 0 o'clock
