THE LICENSE EEFDSED.
Important Liquor Low DecUlon by Judge
Yerkca nt Dorleatown.
Doyxestowit, August 20. Judge Yerkes
read an important opinion in the matter of
tbe rcapplication ot John McBride, of Bris
tol, for a bottler's license. On the ground
of no necessity for the license the court re
fused McBriue's application at the last May
term, previous to the time the decision of
the Supreme Court was handed down in the
Allegheny case. On the strength of the
latter decision McBride presented a petition
to the court praying for a reconsideration of
his application, confidently expecting tbe
license would be granted. But Judge
Yerkes, in bis lengthy and able opinion
read to-day, refused to reconsider his former
refusal, holding that the Supreme Court de
cision in the Allegheny case does not apply
to country districts. Following is an ab
stract of the opinion:
The decision of tne Supreme Conrt denyintr
the richt -Jtne Court of Quarter Sessions to
reiuse- tiers license on the cround of ne-
.ase lrom Allegheny county, where
aw regulates licenses, was under a
it the law which provides for tbe
uiuera uj me courts in me coun-
.s a different one; it is the cneral
om tbe operation of which Alle-
-, by reason of its local law, is ex-
e is no evidence that tbe act of

was considered by them. On

t -re waito occasion til WuSlilt" V
tbe act . ifmf The law governing the prant
inc ot botuernllcensei in the country districts

there is nothing In their decision to show that
they intended to overrule the existing practice.
AN APPEAL FOE HELP.
The Flood Sufferers In West Virginia Are
In Great Need.
I SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO TUB DISPATCn.1
Pabkebsbubo, W. Va., August 20.
The victims of the recent disastrous flood on
Tucker, Tygart, State, Little Sandy and
other creek valleys are, many of them, in
sad need of help. They are houseless and
homeless, and but for the charity of their
once poorer neighbors, the hill farmers, the
suffering would be terrible. As it is, the
drain upon the resources of the farming
communities which escaped the flood is too
great to be long withstood. The towns and
villages are doing all in their power to re
lieve them, but their assistance is entirely
While the deprivations and suffering is
great at this time, it will probably be greater
within a few weeks, when the weather gets
colder. There are miles of desolate terri
tory, with scarcely a house left standing and
not a vestige of crops. The homeless women
and children are scattered among the hill
farmers, while the men are searching for
work over the desolate country. Taken
altogether, the outlook for these poor people
during the coming winter "is a gloomy one.
THE COKE SITUATION.
A Total of 1,691 Oven Where the Strike
Is Still In Operation.
rcrzciax. telequam to tiie msrATcit.i
Scoxtdale, August 20. The situation
in the coke region has now settled down to
a fight between the men and a few of the
smaller operators. The works still out are
the Wynn, TJniondale, Wheeler, Morrell,
Paull, Mahoning, Home, Grace, Great
Bluff, Fort Hill, Fairchance, Atlas and
Dexter. These works control a total of
1,691 ovens. It is claimed by the operators
that the Wynn works are run independently
of the Mammoth plant, and they are trying
every expedient to start without signing the
scale, with but little prospects of success.
Ihe scale was signed this morning by B. F.
Keister & Co. and the Stewart Iron Co.
W. J. Bainey is making a desperate effort
to keep his works running and avoid sign
ing the scale. Tbe entire force of the
organization will aid the men at Bainey's
works. Provisions in abundance will be
sent them, as the organization is prepared
to keep up the fight tor an indefinite period.
A call has been issued for a delegate meet
ing of Sub-Division Ho. 4, K. of L., to be
held at this place next Tuesday.
SCEANTON'S WRECKED BANK.
Judge Connolly's Decision in Its Favor
Arouses the (Stockholders to Action.
Sckakton, August 20. Judge Connolly,
in the case of the People's Street Bail way
against the Scranton City Bank, recently
wrecked by Cashier George' A. Jessup,
ruled that the act of 1850 does not apply to
savings and deposit banks, and the directors
are not obliged to render a statement of the
bank's affairs, and cited that the rnlings of
Judge Tbaver in the Sbackamaxou Bank
case shoulcTbe followed.
The decision has aroused tbe heaviest de
positors to taking a determined stand
toward having the defaulting cashier and
the directors punisiied, and a meeting will
be held dnring the week to push the matter
before the next grand jury.
Assignee Gunster says the money derived
from the recent sale of Jessup's coal lands
have not yet accrued to the bank, the sig
nature of Mrs. Colonel Tripp, who is in
Cjli ornia, being necessary to tbe deeds be
fore tbe transfer of the lands can be msde,
and in view ot this it is possible the depos
itors will receive none of their money before
ANXIETY AT JOHNSTOWN.
A Protest Against tbe Proposed Withdrawal
of the State Force Bodloa Still
Delnc Uecovered Prepnrins;
far the Next Distribution.
tsrrciAi. TixxaBjLX to tux DisrAicu.i
Johnstowx, August 20. The important
question on all sides now is what will be
done about retaining the State forces to
clean up the town. Doctor Lee, who is
deeply interested in this question, has been
away for some days, was expected home to
night, but he failed to show up At tbe bead
quarters of the State Board of Health.
Doctor Lee is very anxious that the work of
cleaning up should be prosecuted with
vigor, and he will urge the Governor to
keep things going, if possible.
On the other hand there seems to be no
question, but instead of the magnificent
sum of $1,000,000 having been secured by
Governor Beaver for this purpose tile Phil
adelphia capitalists only agreed to advance
$300,000. The Governor now, it seems,
finds himself at tbe end of his string, and as
a consequence of this the interests of the
stricken town will suffer. In speaking of
tbe probable withdrawal of the forces the
Tribune to-night has the following:
There Is a universal feeling in this commun
ity that the State could do no greater act of
injustice to the people of this valley than to
withdraw its forces at this time. Scarcely a
day passes that Codies are not recovered, and
many streets, cellars, alleys and lots that are
covered four and five feet deep with disease
breeding filth remain to be cleaned. Who lsjto
doit? The people here have not the means.
Are thev to be left in their present helpless and
miserable condition? Surely the great Com
monwealth of Pennsylvania cannot afford to
treat any ot her children in such a way.
The borough lockup was removed to-day
and the dead body of a child was found
under the steps of a porch adjoining. "Work
is progressing slowly in Secretary Kramer's
office in preparing the papers from which
the commission will make their final distri
bution. Peonle have about lost interest as
to when the balance of the money will be
paid out, and many have concluded that
thev would rather do without than bother
with the delays.
A CANDIDATE FOB COMMANDER.
Private Dnlzell Is Willing; to Be nt the
Head of the G. A. R.
ISrZCI.lL TXLXGBAM TO TUX DISPATCH. 1
Salem, O., August 20. A reporter who
talked with Private Dalzell at the Camp
Boquet Keanion says that Private Dalzell
freely pleaded guilty to the soft impeach
ment that he is a candinate for the position
of Commander-in-Chief of the Grand Army.
He says Tanner is out of the way, because
lie cannot be Conimicsioner of Pensions or
hold any civil office and command the
Grand Army both at the same time.
His strongest competitor is Geueral Al
ger, a man of great wealth, but in the
Grand Army the very Constitution forbids
wealth or rank to be considered for a mo
ment, and hence the Private goes to Mil
waukee with the Buckeye boys Saturday in
the strong faith, from the assurances he has
from tbe boys all over the country, that he
will knock the persimmon.

A MILD COLLISION.
Two Engines Collide at Twenty-Fourth
Street With Minor Injuries.
About 1:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon,as
Allegheny Valley engine No. 28, drawing a
heavy freight train, was crossing at Twenty
fourth street from No. 1 to No. 2 track, it
collided with engine No. 22, of. the Pitts
burg, Cincinnati and St. Louis Bailroad,
which was traveling along the track. The
Allegheny Valley engine was seriously
damaged, the cab being thrown completely
out of position. The boiler was lifted from
its bed, and a number of bolts knocked out
which made an escape for the steam. The
levers and other instruments connected with
the engine were all broken, but fortunately
the engineer and fireman escaped uninjured.
The wrecked engine was taken to the Valley
shops, where it will have to undergo
thorough repairs. One of the Pittsburg,
Cincinnati and St. Louis Bailroad cars,
loaded with Indian corn, had its contents
strewn over considerable territory.
