A Township of Venango County
Afflicted With an Epidemic
Minerva Went Dry, lut the Liquor Dealers
Will Make an Appeal.
FEASKMifi J ?& Piphthcria has
become epidemic in Cranberry township,
Venango county. If ine children have died
within the last fonr days, and a number of
others are down with the disease, which has
'spread rapidly in the lower end of the
county. So violent has the disease become
'in St Petersburg, that the schools have been
closed, and the Council has passed an
ordinance prohibiting the holding of any
public meetings.
A number of fatal cases have oc
curred there and many new cases
!are reported. Two little daugh
ters of 3Ir. Ellis Lipley died las. Thurs
day night, nd three other children in the
same house are very low. In several families
there are three and tour of the members down
at one time.
In nearly every case where the disease has
been allowed to cet a start it has resulted
fatally to the victim. Prompt and vigorous
tieatment is required at the first symptoms of
the disease, or there is but little hope of the
sufferer getting well. At present the disease is
confined almost entirely to children between
the ages of 5 and IS years.
Ills Brethren Believe Him Guilty of Crosi
PAnKEKSBUEG, "W. Xjl., March 9. At the
third day's session of the Washington Confer
ence of the A. M. E. Church the greater por
tion of the morning was devoted to the exami
nation of the character of the ministers. The
character of every member of the conference
received a favorable report until the Secretary
called the name of Bev. M. A Dyer, when not
less than a dozen members sprang to their feet
and in broad and unmistakable language
charged the gentleman with gross miscon
duct. It appears that Rev. Dyer left the Washing
ton Conference about two years ago under a
cloud. Dyer's name was then unanimously
declared withdrawn under charges, an equiva
lent to expulsion. Nearly the entire forenoon
was devoted to this branch of the business.

Purify Your Blood
When spring approaches, it is very important
that the blood should be purified, as at this sea

An Alleged Fnlse Return of Election of Jus
tice of the Pence It Is Met by a Prompt
Salt Other Taw Paints.
A contest in the election of J. S. Powers
as a Justice of the Peace in Patton town
ship was commenced yesterday. A petition
was filed, in which the petitioners claim
that the returns were false and thai J. S.
Powers was not elected. The three candidates
were William N. Haymaker, J. 8. Powers and
James a McCllntock.
The returns were as follows: Powers, 151;
Haymaker, 152; McCllntock, 155. There were
two to elect. The petitioners say that in the
First district the vote of George Barckley was
taken, and that he is not a resident of the
township; also, that there were a number of
votes cast by persons who were not qualified
voters, and whose votes were cast for Powers,
and for said reasons they want Powers' elec
tion set 'aside and Haymaker declared elected.
The Court fixed Saturday, March 23, for a
hearing, and directed Powers to answer the
petition on that date. .
Judge Slagle yesterday handed down an
opinion refusing a charter to the Supreme
Castle Ancient Order of the Knights of the
Mystic Chain. The reasons His Honor gives
for refusing the charter are that although the
law of 1S71 does not require that the proposed
charter be filed in the Prothonotary's office be
fore the publication of notice of the applica
tion, it has been the practice to do so, and the
Court holds it to be a perquisite of the grant
ing of such charter.
In this case the charter was filed on Febru
ary?, only three weeks before the date of pre
sentation. The court states that the applica
tion also contained material alteration by
erasure and interlineation. The court could
not certify such to be in proper form and says:
"An Instrument of such importance should
Tjot be mutilated. To permit it would open the
noor of great abuse, as material alteration
might be made after acknowledgment and even
after approval of court and before recording
which there would be no means of detectine.-'
Opinions of the Supreme Court are quoted
showing that a charter should be written on
one sheet of paper and without interlineations.
The Convicted Murderer's Jury Drnnk
Whisky, So He Profited by It.
Joseph Dimmey, who was convicted of mur
der in the first degree for the killing of Special
Officer Miller, of Allegheny, has been granted
a new trial. Judge Collier yesterday handed
down an opinion granting the new trial, and
commenting on the testimony taken on the
motion before the Commissioner. The only
reason for a new trial filed in the case worthy
of consideration, he said, was the one charging
misconduct on the part of the jury. The act
of the juror sending out a card that he would
not be home.that night was irregular, but not
sufficient to grant a new trial on.
As to the statement concerning the remark
made by Juror Niemann about "niggers,"
which Mr. Niemann denied, the Court did not
feel justified in saying that Mr. Niemann was
guilty of wilful falsification.
The fact was clearly established, he contin
ued, that at least six of the jurors obtained
and drank whisky. It was claimed that none
of the jurors were affected by the drinks but
to determine what effect whisky would have on
each juror would be a hopeless task, and it was
held that the unauthorized use of intoxicating
liquors by the jury is such misconduct as will
vitiate their verdict, and this on the ground of
public policy.
The discharge of George Hoerr, one of the
officers in charge of the jury, was recom
mended for procuring jurors whisky. Judge
Slagle concurred in the opinion.
A Voluntary Non-Suit, Once Entered, Mnst
Hold ns Binding,
Judge Slagle yesterday handed down an
opinion refusing to take off the voluntary non
suit in the case of the Riverside Glassworks
against the Kittanning Insurance Company.
Continuing, Jndge Slagle said:
"A compulsory non-suit is a judgment of the
Court and for a reasonable time within its
control; but a voluntary non-suit is the action
of the plaintiff himself, by which he takes him
self out of court, and the defendant with him.
The Court would have no power to compel the
defendant to return without his consent or
new process. The motion of the plaintiff must
therefore be refused."
This decision settles a much disputed point
as to whether a voluntary non-suit could be
stricken off and a case taken up again.

dock's alley, and the grade of the street was
raised so high, to build an approach to tbe
bridge, that it has rendered her property al
most inaccessible. To .remedy the matter she
would have to raise tbe buildings up to grade,
which would cost almost as much as they are
worth, or else the buildings -would have to be
torn down and rebuilt

old sheep. Here are the sheep t be slaughtered:
