LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCER, FRIDAY, MARCH 5, 1880.
THE OLDEST PRINTER.
He In Neither Dr. Hits nor Mr. Fearoel.
The JTetc JBre en Wednesday, in noticing
the 67th birthday of Abraham Hitz, of
that office, styles him the eldest English
printer in the city, lie having begun life as
a printer in 1828, when he was 15 years of
age. Te this statement the Examiner re
spends by naming Jehn H. Pearsel, who
began setting type in the Journal office
(new Intelligencer) of Hugh Maxwell
ia the year 1825, when but 7$ years old. lie
is new C2 years of age and has been at the
business 55 years. Maxwell's office was
then in the rear of where Ames Miley new
has his saddlery.
Messrs. Hitz and Pearsel are certainly
well preserved representatives of the art
preservative ; but neither of them can
claim the distinction of being the eldest
printer in the city. That distinction be
longs te Mr. Frederick Henry Trost,
whom we had the pleasure of meeting te-
day in the office of the Velkufreund und
llcehachtcr, published by Jehn Baer's
Sens, and in which office he has worked
continuously for 45 years.
Mr. Trost was born February 9th, 1805,
in Itzchee, Helstein. In 1820 at the age
of 15 he was apprenticed te the printing
business, and acquired a thorough knowl
edge of all its branches. In 1834 he came
te America, bringing with him his wife
and child. His first job of work in this
country was en the New Bedford, Mass.,
Mercury, an English newspaper. Frem
Xew Bedford, Mr. Trost removed
te Easten, Pa., and worked for a short
time en the Northampton Democrat. He
then came te Lancaster and worked for
Francis Frank, the publisher of the Ger
man Democrat. In 1835 he obtained a sit
uation en the Velksfreund und Beelachtcr,
published by Jehn Bacr, and has continued
te work in that efiice ever since net hav
ing lest a week's time by sickness during
the entire 45 years, nor from any
ether cause, except occasionally when
he was drawn as a juror or sum
moned as a witness iu court. Ten
yoaisage he celebrated the semi-centennial
of his entry into the printing busi
ness. Being both a German and English
scholar, a pressman and compositor, he is
"at home" in all branches of the profes
sion. He has done the prcsswerk of thou
sands upon thousands of ' Baer's Alman
acs,'" though he generally works at case
--sticks te his stick" as the boys say and
it was working at case we found him to
day. He is the father of twelve chil
dren, only four of whom aie living. These
all married iind have families. His aged
wife still lives te comfort and cheer his
d iclining days.
One of the eldest and most widely known
printers in the city is Henry M. Geitcr, of
the Intelligence!!. He began his print
ins career in 1829 as an apprentice te Tlic Tlic
ephilus Fenn, publisher of the Anti-Masonic
Herald, of this city. He accempa.
nied Fenn te Harrisburg, when that gentle
man bought out the Statesman, and estab
lished the Harrisburg Telegraph After
working en the Telegraph for seventeen
years he returned te Lancaster and work
ed at diflercut periods en the Intelligen
ces, published by Jehn "W. Ferney and
Marcus D. Helbroek ; the Examiner, pub
lished by Edw. C. Darlington ; the Union,
published by G. W. Hammersly ; the In
dependent Whig, published by Edw. Mc Mc
Plicrsen and Jehn J. Cochran ; the Inland
Daily, published at different periods by
Edw. McPhcrsen, Theephilus Fenn and
In IStil Mr. Geiter threw down his
tick and took up the rille te aid in the
preservation of the union. He served
faithfully for nearly four years, and holds
two honorably discharges from the army.
While in the service he was a frequent
contributor te the Intelligences ever
the nom dc plume of "Ajax."
AVhen the cruel war was ever he returned
te Lancaster and resumed his labors as a
printer in the office of the Inquirer then
published by Stuart A. Wiley. Remain
ing there but a short time, he took a posi
tion at case en the Intelligence! and
for 15 years has worked faithfully at case
generally being the first at work in the
morning and the first te get through in
the afternoon. Iu the language of the po
licemen ih the " Pirates of Penzance"
"Taking one consideration with another,
Mr. Ueiler's lile lias been a chequered one."
Among the ether old printers iu the
city, none of whom are "at case " new, but
all of whom began setting type probably
forty years or mere age, are Luther Rich
ards, Gee. "W. Schreycr, J. M. Johnsten,
Reuben A. Bacr and Jas. R. McNaughtan.
"Dad" Cogley and Henry Faesig are also
te be accounted among the old types and
J. W. M. Geist was setting type as far back
Mission Sunday Scheel Entertainment.
The Charlette street M. E. mission
Rev. II. V. Givler pastor, and Elam G.
Snyder superintendent gave an enter
tainment last evening which was attended
by a very large audience. Before the
literary exercises began there was a tea
and coffee sociable in the basement, after
which the following pregramme was suc
cessfully canicd out in the upper room :
Singing by the school ; prayer by Rev.
Mr. Givler ; duet by Misses Mamie Betz
and Sallie Walten ; recitation by Miss Ger
tie Swenk ; sole, " Down where the daisies
grew," by Miss Jennie McCemscy ; recita
tion, "The Medel Church."by Miss Gertie
Maurer ; recitation by Miss Gertie Swenk ;
singing by the school ; recitation, " Peer
Little Jim, "by Miss Gertie Maurer ; semi
chorus by Misses Katie Benedict, Lillie
Godfrey, Lizzie Troyer, Mamie Betz,
Sallie Walten and Ellie Hoever ; vocal sole
by Miss Jennie McCemsey. The pre
gramme throughout was a geed one, and
while all deserve favorable mention special
praise is due te -Bessie Nelan, a little girl
scarcely three years of age, who recited a
short poem in such a pretty style as te win
hearty applause. The entertainment was
for the benefit of the mission school.
Jacob Marcus, who was charged with
embezzlement by Mr. Goldstein, a Titus
villc merchant, and who was te have been
taken te Titusvillc for trial, was dis
charged from custody last evening, the
parties te the suit having satisfactorily ar
ranged their difficulties. Mr. Marcus paid
Mr. Goldstein a part of his claim and gave
him a judgment note for the balance. He
asserts that he had no intention of wrong
ing Mr. Goldstein out of a dollar I
simply owed him a debt that he could net
at once pay.
Trouble Between the Corener and one orHte
The emoluments accruing te the coroner
by virtue of his office are net especially
heavy, when he confines his business te
legitimate cases; and even when he ever
steps the legal bounds and holds inquests
that should net have been held, the fees
are net large enough te make him as
wealthy as a "bleated bend-holder."
Aware of these facts, Corener Mishler,
when he assumed official duty, made
arrangements whereby he could some
what increase his income. Before ap
pointing his deputies he made a
written agreement with each of them,
whereby he net only held them removable
from office at his pleasure, but also exacted
from each a bonus of $4 for every inquest
held by them. One of his deputies
was Wakeman Wesley, of Fulton town
ship, who was duly appointed en the 3d of
last June. Mr. Wesley held an inquest,
and duly handed ever the $4 stipulated in
his agreement with the coroner. But after
thinking ever the matter, he came te the
conclusion that the coroner was net enti
tled te the bonus; and se, last week,
when he held his second inquest he re
fused te give the coroner a cent. The
coroner promptly removed him from office,
and brought suit against him for the re
covery of the 84. This morning the case
was heard before Alderman Wiley. The
facts were net disputed. The coroner
claimed the $4 by virtue of the contract he
had made with Wesley when he appointed
him deputy, and the deputy resisted pay
ment because the contract was void. In
support of his position he quoted the fol
lowing authorities :
In order te give validity te a contract, it
must be founded en sufficient considera
tion. There must be something given in
exchange something that is mutual or
something which is the inducement te the
contract ; and it must be a thing which is
lawful and competent in value te sustain
the assumption. A contract without a
consideration is a nude pact and net bind
ing. Whether the agreement be verbal or
iu writing, it is still a nude pact and will
net support an action if a consideration be
wanting. 2 Kent's Cern., 403 ; 1 Beuv.
Every contract made for or about any
matter or thing which is prohibited and
made unlawful by any statute is a void
contract, though the statute itself docs net
mention that it shall be se, but only in
liicts a penalty en the offender because a
penalty implies a prohibition, though there
be no prohibitory words in the statute.

Dr. Charles Worms, for his release from
the Eastern Penitentiary. Worms ras
convicted in 187G of forging the
name efSecretary of the Interior
Chandler te a contract for Iadian
supplies amounting te $1,250,000.
It was shown that Worms, who was a
physician in Montreal, induced William
Newman, of Chicago, te believe he had
sufficient influence at Washington te ob
tain a large contract from the interior de
partment. He came te this city with
Newman, and upon arriving here a pack
age purporting te contain the centracc,
signed by Secretary Chandler, was re

The case excited great interest from the
fact that the names of Gen. Grant, Gen.
Babcock and ethers were brought in at the
trial. The forgery was established and
Worms, who had fled, was arrested in
Canada. His sentence having expired, and
being unable te pay the fine imposed upon
him, he made application for release. The
examination took place this afternoon and
the prisoner was released.

Cincinnati, March. 5. The proprietor
of every gambling house in this city has
received notice from the new superinten
dent of police te close their places. All but
three obeyed the mandate last night.
Jehn Sherman's grandfather was an ac
complished scholar and able jurist of Con
necticut ; he emigrated te Ohie, where his
son Charles R. Sherman became a justice
of the supreme court and the father of
eleven children, of whom Jehn was the
eighth and Gen. Wm. T., the third. The
general was educated by Tem Ewiug's
father and Jehn was aided in that
direction by his Uncle Jehn, a merchant.
Jehn Sherman was married en August SO,
1848, te Miss Cecilia, daughter of Judge
Stewart, who had removed from Western
Pennsylvania, te Mansfield, te Ohie, and
hence Mrs. Sherman is a cousin of Rev.
C. W. Stewarat, D. D., pastor of the Cole Cele
rain Presbyterian church, this county.
In the spring of 1848 Sherman was a dele
gate te the national convention held at
Philadelphia. When the convention was
being organized, upon motion of Colonel
Cel Iyer, he was made secretary of the
body by the jocular remark that there
was a young men there from the state of
Ohie who lived in a district se
strongly Democratic that he never could
hope te get an office unless that conven
tion gave him one, and with, the laugh
that this created Mr. Sherman advanced
te his position. Mr. Defiees, new public
printer, said there was a young man from
Indiana in precisely the same situation,
and moved that Schuyler Colfax be made
assistant secretary. Cel fax and Sherman
walked up te the stand together.
A 31an of Mark.
Sam Randall would attract interest in
almost any crowd. He is tall, broad bread
shouldered and very individual in his per
sonal bearing. His face is a dead, sallow
white and stands out in marked contrast
with his intensely jet-black eyes and coal
black hair. He almost always wears steel
bowed glasses. The lower part of his
face, which is always clean shaved,
indicates bull-deg firmness and tenac
ity. He almost invariably dresses in
black. He lives in a very quiet, unpre
tentieus way, in a very inexpensive house
en Capitel hill. He is never seen in a car
riage, but walks about town. He used te
be a great drinker several, years age, when
he first entered Congress. The tempta
tions of Washington life were, for a time,
tee strong for him, and a weaker man
would have been absolutely ruined. He
brought that bull-deg tenacity of his te
bear, and absolutely foreswere the use of
liquor, some four years age, and since that
time no one has ever seen him taste a dreD.
Se far as private life gees he is a model.
He is devoted te his family and his children.
An Editor's Dremm.
He fell asleep after a time, and Ie ! he
dreamed again. And it seemed te him in
a vision that, having armed himself with
certain papers aad books, he turned his
steps once mere toward the place and
knocked at the gate.
" Helle, is that you again?" said Peter.
" What de you wish ?"
"Let these persons again come forth,"
replied the editor, and Peter this time "
made them all pass through the gate and
They came as before and uttered the
same cries as before.
"Why didn't you notice that big egg I
sent you?" yelled the first.
"It was rotten," replied the editor.
"Why didn't you write up my soda
fountain ? " cried the druggist.
" Yeu had your tickets printed at the
ether office," calmly replied the local
"Why did you write about old Tomlin
son's hens and never speak of my new
gate ? " shouted a third.
" Old Tomlinson paid for his advertising
and you didn't. Here's the bill," said the
" Why did you spell my name wrong
in the pregramme ? " groaned the local
"Take a leek at this manuscript of
yours and see for yourself," said the editor
with a grim smile.
The rest of the company yelled their
complaints in unison, and the editor calm
ly sorted out a series of bills for unpaid
subscriptions, and presented each with
one ; and it was se, that when they had
received them, they all tore their hair and
rushed violently down a steep place into
the sea, and St. Peter, taking the edi
tor calmly by the hand, led him within the
gate and said :
" Come, friend ; these chaps managed te
