SBr-ECUi TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.
Butler, September 16. The largest sale
of oil property in Butler county for several
rears has finally bren consummated by "W.
J. McKee to Messrs. B. E. Mitchell, X.
Moore, TV. S. Work and F. H. Langworthy,
of "Warren, Pa, The consideration was
about 590,000. Comprised in the property
are between 400 and 500 acres of leases
situated at Brum, in Parker township
There are 27 oil wells, producing about 100
barrels per day, and four gas wells furnish
ing gas through eight miles of two and
three inch lines for the pumping wells and
inhabitants of Brum. This plant is one of
the most valuable in the countv and promises
to yield the purchasers a handsome profit. The
wells are producing from the "30-foot" and
third sands and arc regarded as "ftajers "
It is interesting to note that in 1S78, without a
dollar of money, ilr. JIcKee purchased a well
producing fivo barrels per day, agreeing to pay
1,800 barrels of oil to the owner. Though the
well had been producing several years. Mr.
McKee succeeded in increasing the yield to 20
barrels per day. From time to time he pur
chased kaea and drilled wells.in such a quiet
way that oil producers are surprised to find
Mich a valuable property in this part of the
field where the excitement raged fiercely in the
early seventies Mr. McKee's total profit on
the property sold is a foil 1100,000. He retains
150 acres of leases and some producing wells
One remarkable fact is that Mr. McKee
strictly observed Sunday, on which day all
drilling and Dumping wells wero shut down so
that his men cuuld attend church if they de
sired. This rule was occasionallj broken in
cxtremelv cold weather. Perhaps there is not
another producer in the entire oil region who
shuts down pumping wells over Sunday.

THE LAW IS LAME.
That Tax Beclsion is Xot n Question of
Saturday an erroneous impression was
given as to a decree made by Court of Com
mon Pleas No. 1 in the matter of an appeal
by the Pittsburg, Virginia and Charleston
Railway against the action of the Board of
Assessors in assessing property recently pur
chased by that corporation on Manor street,
The report referred to stated that the ques
tion decided was that no assessment could be
made against "unknown owners," while such
question was nbt before the C ourt, and, be
sides, no such question can arise, as the law
clearly accepts such assessment when proper
diligence to find owners has been made.
The action of the Court was upon a much
more important, or at least a more interesting
question. The appeal was against the City
Board of Assessors in assessing at full rate
paid for property, as required by the new city
charter, which provides that "no property shall
be assessed for a less amount than the price
paid for it at the last recorded sale," etc. The
Court, in the decree (published below), pro
nounces this unconstitutional, and under it the
Board of Assessors are required to place all the
real estate attheir schedule rates thus equal
izing values. Following is the decree
This case having been argued by counsel
and it appearing to the Court that the first
proviso 01 section :a oi the act of Assembly
approvetUtae 11th day of June, 18S7, is uncon
stitutional and void, and that tho valuation
placed upon the property of the petitioners in
this case m accordance therewith is illegal, it

The death of Mrs. Isabella B. Law. of
this city, recalls some interesting events to
the minds of those who are connected with
her history. The lady was the wife of James
Edgar Law, who died In 1870, and she Is the
descendant of ono of the oldest American fam
ilies. She was born at Cochran's Landing,
Mifflin township, 91 years ago. Her father was

Her ancestors moved to this part of the
country from Harrlsburg in the early part of
this century, and here Mrs. Law was born,
raised and married. Her husband, James
Edgar Law, owned and controlled a team of
wagons running between this city, Philadelphia
The family is quite historic In its way. Mrs.
Law's grandfather was Captain Brlsbin, a
valiant warrior of the Revolution, now buried
near Harrlsburg; and her oldest son. John P.
Law, was killed in the Civil War. Mrs. Law
was a very intelligent lady,-and retained tho
perfect use of her faculties to the last. She re
called vividly the first steamboat ever seen in
Pittsburg and the sensation it created. She
also remembered the landing of Lafayette and
the banquet tendered blm in his honor, at
which her husband was one of the guests.
Mrs. Law had 6 children, 4 boys and 2 girls,
but only one of them, a son, is now alive. She
also has 13 grandchildren and 10 great-grand,
children. She was a stanch member of the
Presbyterian Church, and was very devout m
its exercises. Snc was widely known, and her
death, though expected, has caused no little
amount of sorrow. The funeral will take place

THE PITTSBURG DISPATCH,
We are now perfecting the preliminaries
for starting our September Limited on
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12.
It will make rapid work and quick re
turns to the advantage ot our large con
stituency of buyers. A vestjbule train,
saving time and its equivalent, money, to
all, with that safety in buying, that.is felt
in traveling on the Chicago Limited.
The constant arrival of new
Fall Carpets, Furniture and Curtains.
makes the pressure for space in our sales
rooms so heavy that something must
'break." We have decided it must be last
season's prices on stacks of goods whose
room is preferable to their company. We
ring out the old and ring in the new. The
goods are standard. Ourreputation rests on
none better. Fashion's changeable whim is
their only demerit. The admired new of
to-day will be the slighted old next year.
They are then the peers of the present when
future use and true worth are considered.
NOTE THE DAY,
THURSDAY, SEPT. 12!
Be ready at the start, and reap the ad
vantage of the f rst comers. Here are a few
examples of the speed of our Limited. Do
they suggest bargains? Scores equally as
