ftdge Slagle Cautions the Grand Jury
Against Certain Evils.

& Charge list One of Xbem ffa Himself a Violitor
liie grand jury for the December term of
court received Borne salutary cautions from
., Judge Slagle. His Honor alluded to the
general objections to the grand jury system
and pointed out some radical modifications
which -would better matters. County con
stables returned divers speak-easies but the
names jero' reserved to facilitate prosecu
tion. The December term of the Criminal Court
opened yesterday with Judge Slagle presid
ing. The first matter -was the charging of
the grand jury. Judge Slagle said that the
recent reports of grand jurors has been of
Buch a character as to cause many people to
advocate the abolition of the system. He
idid not agree -with this, but wished to cau
tioja the grand jurors.
He continued that there is a waste of time
In the grand jury room, and he would re
ceive the report of the grand jury each day
at S o'clock and not before. There was no
reason why they should not serve as long each
dav as a petit jury. The expense of running a
Erand jury is from J100 to KSOO per day, which is
an additional reason for them to act as speedily
BY 'WAT OF CAUTION. .
His Honor also cautioned them against
prejudice for unpopular laws, which laws they
are to enforce as they find tjjem, and against
prosecutors or witnesses. They most decide the
case on the evidence, and not reckon on the
provocation, as men do not bring their friends
into the courts of justice. He said that many
caes are thrown ont by the grand jury because
of their trivial nature. This should not be, as
oveiyman has a right to be heard. Further,
the grand jury is not to hear evidence on the
part of the Iense.
In conclution, be said that they should not
talk with Any one outside concerning cases be
fore them, and If they were approached by
anyone they should report it to Court and the
offender would be punished. Samnel C. Greer.
Delinquent Tax Collector, of Allegheny, was
appointed foreman. ,
THE FIBST DAY'S OEIBT.
The Grand Jury retired, and at 3 o'clock
made a return of their first day's work. The
true bills returned were: John K. Hayden,
fraudulently making and uttering a written in
strument; Thomas Gray, George Geary, lar
ceny; Win. McElwanie, assault and battery;
.Michael Motet, acgravated assault and battery:
lAndrew Polok, felonious assault and battery;
'SI. Becker, selling liquor on Sunday.
The ignored bills were: Thomas Tracer, Wm.
IMorrisey, larceny; John McGlnley, entering a
milling with intent to commit a felony.
'Several Violators Returned, bat Their Names
Reserved for Legal Reasons. j
The quarterly returns of the constables were
'received yesterday by Judge Slagle. District
attorney Porter refused to permit the publica
tion of the violators returned, for fear of the
escape of the offenders before they could be
indicted and arrested. At his instance. Judge
Slagle issued an order to that effect, and the
returns were kent from the reporters.
When Constable Lowry, of Beltzhoover
borough, was making his return, the District
Attorney received a note EUting that Lowry
himself kept a speak-easy. Lowry was ques
tioned concerning the matter, but denied it.
The writer of the note, a man named
Sellers, was called up and examined.
He could only say that he had seen IS or 19 men
going Into Lowry's bouse by a rear entrance,
but be could not say that they obtained liquor.
Judge Slagle said that there must be more
positive evidence than that to hold Lowry on,
and dismissed nun.
The Constable of tho Third ward, Allegheny,
had his report returned to bim to amend. The
Court had received a list of names of parties
in the ward, alleged to have been selling, that
were not on the Constable's return. He took
the list, and said bo would look them up.

ANOTHER FATAL FIEE.
Two Philadelphia Families Caught Id a
Tinder Box Js!x People Burned to Death
Five Others Badly Injured"
Cause of the Horror.
Philadelphia, December 2. A terri
bly fatal fire occurred early this morning at
the corner of Second and Huntingdon streets.
The bakery of Gustave Gross, who lived
with his family in the building, and the
third story of which was occupied by a fam
ily named Bitner, was totally destroyed by
fire. The building was a veritable tinder
box, and although the firemen were promptly
on hand, the flames burned so fiercely they
could do bnt little toward checking the fire.
They, however, managed to rescue four chil
dren ot the Bitner lamuy ana two oi me
Gross family uninjured. Five others were
burned or smothered to death and five seri
onslv burned and removed to the hospital.
Tfie dead are as follows: Gustave Gross,
Jr., aged 11 years; Bruno Gross, aged 5
years; George Bitner, aged 9 years; Ida
Bitner, aged 6 years; Annie Bitner, aged 35
years; Margaret Gross, aged 3 years. The
injured are: Mr. Joseph Bitner, Mrs.
Joseph Bitner, John Emilschaum, an em
ploye; Hattie Gross, Mrs. Gross.
No other property was destroyed, and the
loss on the Gross building will not be large.
The cause of the fire is supposed to have
been a back draft from the fufnaee. It is
thought that a couple of the most seriously
injured will dif. One of the victims of tbe
fire succumbed to her injuries in the hos
pital, making six in alL She was the3-year-old
Margaret Gross. Mrs. Gross lies
in a most critical condition. She was very
seriously burned about the head, arms and
legs, and fell from a third-story window.
To add to the danger of her burns she is also
in a delicate condition, and slight hopes are
entertained of her recovery.
