Curious te Knew.
This'is a remarkable course of proceed preceed

instead of bringing a suit for libel, as any

of this outrage upon justice, and we have

Tile future of tobacco cultivation in
Pennsylvania seems premising, if the ac
complishments of the past in this direction
are te be taken as evidence. In 1830,
when the largest portion of the ciep was
raised in Yerk county, the yield was 1,--100.000
pounds, and this was regarded as
something extraordinary in tobacco cul
ture. Since that time it has become a pait
-of the growing crops in a number of coun
ties, and Lancaster, Yerk and Lebanon
counties the principal counties of the
.state in which tobacco is grown at 24,
0(10,000 pounds, and this will reali.e about
4:1,000,000. A better yield even than this
is expected in 1880.

terly insufficient te make out a prima facie
case or warrant a conviction. VTnder such

commonwealth should have time te pro

WHY WE LAUGH!
THE SEVENTH VABD CONTESTED
Merringer Elected Constable by a Majority
Court met at 9 o'clock this morning in
the orphans' court room, Judge Patterson
J. L. Steinmetz, esq., called the atten
tion of the court te the fact that the time
set apart for opening the Seventh waid
ballet-box and counting the votes declared
illegal had arrived.
Judge Patterson, who has had tne baleot-box
in custody ever since the contest
commenced last fall, produced it and
handed it te the commissioners, David
McMuUcu aud II. R. Fulton, esqs.
The box was opened and the commis
sioners examined the votes that had been
declared illegal. The result was as fol fel
Of the votes attacked by the Republican
petitioners and declared illegal by the
court, it was found that Jehn McGrann,
Augustus Waitz, Philip Gerz, Jeseph
Beyer and Jehn F, Myerle, jr., had voted
for Meninger (Democrat), aud that Jehn
McManus had voted for Erisman.
Of the votes attacked by the Democratic
respondent and declared illegal by the
court, it was found that Allen Wilsen,
Matthias Rcsh, Adam Ripple, Wm. Themas
Rebert Orr, Samuel Grey, James Waters,
and Peter Hilliard (all of whom had
sworn they had voted ler erisman;
had voted for Erisman. And that the
following named illegal voters, who declin
ed te swear for whom they voted, had also
voted for Erisman : Edward Sander.6,
Spencer Weeds, Leenard Peters, Geerge
W. Parks, Franklin Archey, Frank Hart,
Charles Butler, Geerge Asten, Philip
Thompson, Geerge Brown, Jeseph Turner,
and S. J. Davidsen ; and that Edward
Clark had voted for Merringer.
The votes of Charles W. Schwehel and
Emanuel Finefrock (numbered respect
ively en the poll book 14:5 and 321 and de
clared by the court te be illegal could net
be positively identified, the numbering
being in lead pencil, and tendered indis
tinct by repealed handling. A count of
all the votes in the ballet-box, however,
showed the total number te be 559, the
same number as shown by the tally list. Of
the thirty votes declared illegal by the
court Merringer received G and Erisman
24, leaving Merringer's legal majority 20.
Even supposing the illegal votes of C. W.
Schwcbel and Emanuel Finefrock (both of
whom swore they voted for Erisman)
were declared as having been cist for
Merringer, Merringer's majority would
still be 10 15 mere than the election offi
cers gave him.
The commissioners have net jet "offi
cially" made known te the court the result
of their examination of the ballet box.
After that shall have been done, the ceuit
will no doubt make an order disposing of
Great credit is due te J. L. Steinmetz,
esq., counsel for respondent, for the able
manner in which he concluded the case.
He was indefatigable in gathering and
collating testimony in behalf of his client,
and every law point raised by him during
the trial was sustained by court.
Feuling With Firearms.
Last night, Harry X. Hewell made a
narrow escape from being shot by Frank
Jenes, at the Empire truck house. Several
young men were in the house when Jenes
came in and took a revolver from his
pocket : he was told that Hewell was in
the water closet ; he then pointed the re
volver in that direction and shot. The
men had had no quarrel and'it is supposed
that Jenes shot "for fun."' It wascei
tainly very dangerous sport.
Mr. Jenes claims that the pistol contain
ed nothing but a blank cartridge, and that
the weapon was net pointed toward How Hew
ell when discharged.

THE CUBAN EARTHQUAKES.

Cable te the Herald.
The recurrent earthquake shocks in
Vuelta Abajo and Havana have thoroughly
alarmed the timid inhabitants of Western
Cuba. Toward five o'clock en the morn
ing of Sunday, January the 25, a slight os
cillation in this city reused a comparatively
few from their slumber. Later a sinister
heave.tessed people from their pillows and
caused no little consternation. These recent
tremors have been multiplied at certain
points of the interior, where en the night
of the 25th three shocks are recorded at
nine, eleven and two o'clock. Frem San
Diege, Santiage de las Vegas, Pinar del
Rie, Cienfuegos, Mariel, and elsewhere,
come accounts of earthquakes and public
terror, monopolizing the press te the ex
clusion of ether matter. San Cristobal,
the apparent centre of the disturbance, is
a town of about a thousand inhabitants
andone hundred houses. It is seventy
livp miles from Havana and seventeen
miles from Majana bay, en the south
A visit discloses the fact that the con
cussion there kut Thursday night nearly
tumbled the place te ruins. The church
stands tottering, with its portico disman
tled in front, its pillars razed, its cupola
awry, its windows shattered and its altar
disturbed. The priest escaped from his
house while the wall was falling. The tel
egraph office is half demolished. The gov
ernment aud principal buildings are unten
able. A drug store, which was large and
heavily stocked te supply the surrounding
country, is cracked in the interior and
strewn deep with debris from empty
shelves. A primitive and cumbersome
jail filled with prisoners and their guards,
is dismembered in every part. The pres
ence of mind of the inmates was unique.
The prisoners instantly leaped for liberty,
and the guards as promptly interfered.
One convict was shot dead after emerging
through a crevice made by the earthquake
and bursting open an outer deer. Three
guards were wounded in the melee. Four
teen ethers of the inmates are in hospital
with injuries sustained from falling beams
The dwellings suffered en a line distinct
ly traceable through the town, intcrscctinr
the afore-mentioned building and leaving
ethers almost unharmed, though most ei
them were badly built of adobe. An
American from Portland, Me., was nearly
crushed under his kitchen chimney. A
small stream runs past San Cristobal, ami
the railroad bridge that spans it had its
foundations se shaken that trains new cress
at a snail-like pace until repairs can be
made. On the verge of this stream sev
eral fissures are discernible, being from
three te ten inches wide and from forty te
one tiuudrcd feet long. Seme of them ai
of considerable depth. The inhabitants
aver that en the morning after the earth
quake these fissures emitted sulphureus
vapors, and that the stream, itself was
strongly impregnated with sulphur and
A military guard and committee of en
gineers were dispatched te San Cristobal
by the government, and their decisicn is
understood te be that 110 injured structures
shall be repaired, but all must come down
and be rebuilt. Meanwhile scores of resi
dents are leaving a spot that is new deemed
te be accursed. The wildest theories are
rife, based en superstitions three centu
ries old. In the country dozens of evil
influences are held te be accountable, while
in Havana the New Yerk gas company's
fresh trenches arc denounced by negre
preachers, who prophesy a speedy apoca
lypse, preceded by a swallowing up of the
earth. The captain general aud his army
are in the centre of the island. Meantime
the government has taken measures id
temporary relief for these who have been
excluded from their homes at San Cristo
bal and elsewhere.
