charming. The gifted prima donna Mies

Court met on Mondy, January 21, 1680
at 10 o'clock 1 President Judge Ikclcr and
Assoclato Judge Mctlenry on the bench,
After the trautacilon ot somu routine busi
ness Judgo Ikeler stated that bo bad re
ceived on Saturday remonstrances against
tho granting of any license, from Berwick,
Llghtstrcet, Bloomsburg, and Mlllvlllo, As
H. ri. Howell Esq. represented tho opposl.
tlon to sonio applications, the papers wero
handed to him. Col. Freeze objected to
tho consideration of the papers on tho
ground that the rules of court require re.
monstrances to be filed soven days befoto
Hccnrc court, which has not been dune.
G. E Elwcll objected to them on tbe ground
that tho Supremo Court has said that gen
eral rcmonsltmccs ought not to bo con
sidcred. It. Buckingham and J. H, Maize
also objected to tho filing uf tbo papers.
After examining tho papers, Mr. Howell
handed them back to tho court, saying that
ho would present them at tho argument, to
show popular sentiment.
Owing to the non-arrival of Associate
Judge Murphy, tbo license cases were post
poned until 1:80 p. m.
Court convened at 1:30, Judges Ikclcr
and McUenry on tho bench, Judge Murphy
being dctalnod by sickness.
B. N. Walker was appointed official sten
ographer for the courts of the 2Gth District.
D. It. Coffmau was appointed court crier
for Columbia county, and compensation
fixed at $1 CO for each day's attendance.
Elijah Bhutt and M. E. Cox wero ap
pointed tipstaves, at $1.00 per day, and
they aro required to keep tbo court room,
furnlturo and spittoons clean.
Tbo licenses wero then taken up.
On behalf of the exceptions, Mr. Howell
argued that the court had no jurisdiction
to grant licenses at this time, because the
Act ot 1875 fixes the first and second terms
ot court in each year, as the time for grant
ing licenses, and tbe Act of 1887 does not
repeal the Act of 1875. Ho contended that
the provision in tho Act of 1887 providing
that the court may fix a timo by standing
rule or order, means only that tho court
may fix a time within tbe period fixed by
tho Act of 1875, to wit, at tbe first or second
term ot the year. Ue also contended that
the form of tho advertisement In the news
papers were lnuftlclent,in not showing the
residence of the applicants with sufficient
accuracy. He asked that the court would
make an order permitting a copy ot the ex
ceptions to be filed In any or alt cases. To
this objections wero made by counsel rep
resenting applicants. Mr. Howell asked
permission to read remonstrances sent to
tho court last Saturday. To this objections
wero made by counsel for applicants, which
were overruled, and the rcmanstranccs per
mitted to be read. Exceptions wero taken
by all applicants. Tho petitions were as
To Judge E. It Ikeler.
We do hereby petition and beg you, for
the sake ot our community and for the
present and rising generation In our midst,
to do all in your power to havo our laws
of order and pcac enforced, and that at
the convening of the coming term ot court
you will as far as possible grant no license
for tho sale of spirituous and malt liquors
in our county.
Women's Christian Temperance Union.
'To the Hon. E. R. Ikeler, President Judge
of Columbia cunty.
Your petitioners, ladies of tho Woman's
Christian Temperance Union of Columbia
county, being convinced that tho manufac
ture and sale of intoxicating liquors as a
beverage, Is productive of evil, atul only
evil ; and Whereas, drunkenness amongst
tho young men of our county is evidently
on the increase, in consequence of tho lack
of necessary legal restraint, and Whereas,
the laws of the United States have for their
foundation tbo Divine law, and that law
denounces drunkenness, therefore bo it re
solved, that wo respectfully pray your
Honor to grant no licenses tor the sale of
intoxicating liquors as a beverage, In tbe
aforesaid county, in which you have been
elected chief vindicator of the law."
(23 names of Berwick ladies arc signed
to the above. )
"Tho W. 0. T. U. of Ligbtstreet, in the
county ot Columbia, to tho Honorable
Judges of the Court of said county :
Your petitioners are an organization ot
women engaged in christian and philan
thropic work for tbe suppression of tho
evils ot intemperance. In the name ot God
and Homo wo do hereby petition you that
you grant no license in Columbia county at
the January term of court."
(13 names of ladles ot Ligbtstreet signed
to the above.)
"To tbe Hon. E. It. Ikeler, President Judgo
of Columbia and Montour counties s
With a solemn realization of the respon
sibility resting upon us as mothers, wives
and sisters, we tho members of the W. C.
T. U. of Mlllville. Col. Co. Penn,, come be
fore you as humble supplicants asking
your favor in helping us to quell the giant
whose footprints may be found on almost
every threshold. We appeal to you as a
neighbor whom we found ever kind and
ready to assist us ; as a schoolmate whoso
warm sympathy has ever been with us, and
as a friend upon whom we feci we can de.
pend for assistance we so sadly need. It
is not necessary for us to picture tho evils
of intemperance, for, llko us, you have
seen hearthstones made wretched, fond
hopes blasted, Intellects buried In oblivion,
and the reeling staggering forms ot God's
Image have led us to exclaim "A direful
pestilence is In the land I" Wo do there
fore most earnestly entreat and Imphro you
to be more cautious In tho granting of
licenses to sell Intoxicants than has bsen '
done heretofore ; and use your Influence
and authority at all times against a busi
ness which Is so wrong in principle, un
christian In method and disastrous in re
sults. May strength be given you for the
carrying out ot every good and noblo pur
poso, is our prayer."
After Mr. Howell bad read these petitions,
speeches were made by .Messrs. Zarr, Buck
ingham, Maize, Freeze, Elncll, aud It. It
Little, on behalf of applicants, and Mr.
Howell closed the argument (or exceptants.
The Court overruled the exceptions to
the Jurisdiction. Jud,to Ikeler said :
"In Glnrlch's Application, 3 Pa. 0. 0, It.,
800, the query was'suggested whether the
provision ot the act or 1887, requiring that
sureties on the bond should be signers of
the petition is still in tone. Wo bad here,
tofore taken pains to ascertain what was
the drift of thu debate in the legislature on
the passage of the Brooks bill, which be
came the act ot thirteenth May, 1887, or
tbe new llquor.law, as it is called, under
which tho pretent applicants petition this
court for license. We find that section
six ot the bill contained a provision similar
to that Just mentioned but that this was
thought unnecessary and was not embodied
Where Ihero is conflict, or repugnancy,
between an old and a new act of the legit
lature, the latter expression of the will ot
thu peoplo by their representatives must
prevail, and'thc old uot Is therefore so far
repealed as it Is inconsistent with tbo new,
In th light of this principle of construe
tk' , and considering tbe course of legls
latlon on this subject tho mischief and tho
remedy noting that tbo new act is in a
number ot particulars different from the
old providing, for example, a different
manner ot publication, a different amount
of bond, a different time for tbo hearing ot
applications a difference that has been
thoroughly discussed in tho arguments of

tton, and to hold also that tbo petitions (so
far as our attention has been called to them)
aro sufficient, within tho letter of the act of
1837, though whether any applicant shall
have granted to him tho prayer ot his petl
tlon will be decided upon tho hearing of his
As to tbo papers purporting to bo "mem
orials," which wero handed to the court,
and which havo been read by counsel, no
think tnat no harsh censure should be pass
ed upon tho signers, who undoubtedly act
cd in good faith. The papers may be coo
Sidcred as a slnglo memorial, for they all
come from ono organization in the county,
tbe Woman's Cbtlstlan Temperance Union,
having branches in tbo sovcral towbllilps
and boroughs. The ladles were late in com
pletlng tho list of signatures, and sent their
memorial by mall, as tho most direct way
of arriving, without risk ot delay or ot mis
carriage, In timo for presentation to tho
court by their counsel, Mr. Howell. Wo
think that theso memorialists ought to bo
beard, and that tbo publto ought to know
what they are doing. Just what is to bo
tho effect of their memorial, or whether It
shall havo any Influence iu determining the
action of tbe court upon a given appllca.
tlon is another thing. Tho papers aro too
lato to bo recognized as remonstrances,
regularly filed under tho rules of court; we
regret this, because they aro manifestly the
honest expression ot tho view of the sign
ers and would bo entitled to some weight;
ot course, tho request (in some of them)
that no license shall bo granted to anybody
anywhere in Columbia county can hardly
be reasonably expected to abolish the act
of 1887. We know and respect thu people
who havo made this memorial, and wo say
in response that wo desire to do our wholo
duty as magistrates, to enforce all the laws
us we find them. It any evils arise from
our so doing, tho remedy Is with tho legis
lature, and tbe people, who aro both soon
to pass upon tbo main question Involved in
all our llqtior-laws tho theory, or method,
of dealing with tho llquor-trafllc."
The cases ot John McDonald and Andrew
Honey Jr., applicants for restaurant

On Tuesday morning at 9 oclock, the

Henry on tbe bench.
Mr. Howell read a letter from tho Presi
dent of the W. C. T. U. of Lightstreet, to
Bhow bis authority for appearing in oppo
sition to license applications, and stated
that he would cross-examine all witnesses
called in new cases.
The caso of A. Colo & Bon, new appll.
cants for distillery license in Bugarloat
was taken up. Mr. Buckingham objected
to tbo cross-examination of wituesscs by
Mr. nowell in cases where no remonstrance
has been filed. The court ruled that Mr.
Howell had the right to do so. Several
witnesses wero called to prove the necessity
for the place. No witnesses wero called in
opposition to the license

in Centre was then heard. To this a re

Mr, Wlnterstcen represented the remon

Mr Maize alleged were non-residents.
Ou behalf of the remonstrants the follow,

The substance of tbo testimony for the
applicant was that tbe house was necessary
as a public bouse, that Mann kept a good
house, and waB a fit person to keep a hotel;
that he was in poor health and unable to
do anything else. The testimony ot the
witnesses against tbe license, was In sub
stance, that the app'icuut was not a man ot
tempcrata habits, and that ho has been con
victed in this court within tbe past year for
selling to minors. Aftor remarks by coun
sel the court refused the license, on the
ground that tho applicant had not shown
himself a fit person to have a license, as
some of his own witnesses admitted seeing
him Intoxicated within tho past few days.
'Tho case has been well managed'' said tbe
court, "and we cannot but think that bis

bis witnesses. We think it would be doing
