THE GAME CASE
JUDdE AROHBAliD QTJA3HES
liaccy Act Only Seeks to Ttmlsh the
Shipment or Delivery for Shipment
nnd Not tho Mere Intent to Ship
Gamo Killed In Violation of tho
laws of State Shipment Must Be
Actually Entered Upon and Not
Merely Contemplated to Constitute
Judfre Tl. W. Arohbnld of the United
States federal court of the Middle Penn
sylvania district, on Baturdtiy filed iinljucompllalntl; n delivery to a commun carrier for
opinion In the celebrated BIoomlnK
drove game ense, In which seven prom
inent men of New York und New .Ter
pey were charged with violation of the
Lnccy bill, u recent enactment of con
gress to nrohlblt the taking of killed
or trapped game outside of the state.
Tho judge's decision sets aside the In
dictment on the ground that the de
fendants did not complete an offense
against the statute.
.The defendants were A. S. Smith, of
New York: John S. Kusser and Ben
jamin Kusser, of Trenton; Robert Post
nnd Andrew J. Post, of Jersey City;
Thomas .1. Barry, of New York, and It.
II. Brclutuall, of Newark. October 21,
3501. they were coming from Blooming
Grove park In Pike county with satch
els containing a hundred or more
pheasants and a box enclosing the car
cass of a doer, when Dr. Kobfus, chief
of tho Pennsylvania game commission
Intercepted them nt the railroad sta
tion and placed them under arrest, on
the charge of Violating the Lacey act,
In having prepared for shipment with
intent to ship outside of the state pack
ages rontalnlug dead animals and
birds, killed iin violation of local game
laws. The Lacey act provides that nil
game Intended for shipment from one
state to another shall be marked so
that the contents of the packn&c mo
clearly and readily ascertainable. The
defendants had the name concealed in
KUchels and trunks, bearing no Indi
cation whatever of their contents.
WAS ARGUED HERE.
The case was argued at the Scranton
session of the United States court on
March 4 last. The cuse In which N. S.
Hmlth, president of the Blooming Grove
Park association, was defendant, was
made the test case. General Kllpatrick,
of UHHton, lepresented the defendants
and United States Attorney McOarrell
ind Congressman John S. Wise, of New
Yoik, argued for the prosecution. The
opinion of Judge Archbald Is appended:
llil lii'lirlnunt is framed under the third nnd
f.iurth M-dions of the Act of May 23, WOO, III
Mat. at Laige, 1ST, chip. 55J, commonly known
iii tho Lucy Law. Aside Irom the uestion of
the validity of that statute or the ejct purpose
to he attained by it, it i to be observed ;;s a
matter uhlch lien on the surface, that the caiuo
that U thcie piohibitcd Irom belli? (.hipped from
mie State or Territory to another, is that, und
only that width has been Killed in Iolation of
the local law. Omitting matter of verbiage, tho
Art in substance declaics that il shall bo unlaw
f.il fur any one to deliver tu uny common ciuricr,
i'i' tor any tomnion carrier to tiamport from (lie
Sfite or Territory to nnothei, "the dead bo lies
oi part.s thi'ioof of nny wild animals or birds
where such annual., en biicl hue been killed in
violation of the laws of the slate. Territory or
Dlslilct m vvhieli the sanin was Killed." As a
nrcc.-Mry ccinei,iientc of this, thcie is no viola
t lull of the Act unkts the c.inio shipped or sought
to be shipped has been mi Killed, ami tho fait
that it wj?, is oi the essence of tho uflcmc and
irut bo averred .ind proved. While the 1'ederai
courts will no doubt take notice of the Statute
laws of the different ttatru with icspcct to the
1.1 1 ins of gime within their respective borders,
this cloe.s not elo away with the nccvdly for lie
iljrlng, as well a showing, tlut they hac in
J.iot been violated. If this be so, the flrxt and
second counts of the indictment me fatally de
fective, 'there i- iu averment whatever as to
where the triune there spoken of was Killed,
whether in I'cim-.vh.iui i or elsewhere; or that
when and where Killed, it was killed in lolatlon
of the local law.
Tin: ij.vi.li statement only.
All tlut wo have is the bild statement
in I he one count tlm the defend mt hid
prepared for shipment, by lutei'-talc com
merce out of the utile, eeitaln packages of dead
Kami', without liavhur Iheiu e'leaily marked with
the name and address of the shipper and the in
lure of the contents, .is rcrjiilriil by the Act; did
in the other, that he hid concealed tho game
spoken of in trunks, tutihc, etc, without bav
ins them so marki'd, with the intent to carry
than out of the state into other slates in viola
tion of the Act of (jeneiul .vicnibl,v , of I'.i,, im
proved .lime 4, Ib'JT, ni.d In evasion :uid violation
of the Act of Congiv-w in ejiicstlui). But tlieie
wms no nccewarj vice1 In any of these Act by
themselves; the Rime nuy tune been innocently
Mlle'd, nnd wo incut piestuuc tlut it was until it
appear otherwise; for all that v.o know it may
have been killed In Ciiud.i m some other equally
iiielonint place, with width the Uclu charged
me just as consistent as they arc with an tiling
which Is piohlbittd. It is true that these counts
eliol with aliened evasions of the law, which by
the teims of the Statute, are punishable equally
with direct violation of it. lint that doe, tot
direct tho question. Whether II be an evasion or a
violation tlut Is charged, neither can exist ex
cept the Kline which is tho subject ot It was
hilled in disregard of the local lew, tho prohibi
tion of the statute being predicated wholly upon
.Nor is the second count helped out in tills re
Kind by the reference them found to tho Act of
ticncrol Assembly, of Pennsvlvwila, entitled; "An
Ait for the better protection of same, etc." All
the. ii -c nuclei of this icfcrrucu is to declaie that
the nets of the defendant I'oinplained ot were dono
with tho intent to riny the1 game out of thu
bl'ite ioii(r.iT)' (o tho piovislons of that statute.
Hut with lid by Itself the Act ot CoiiRrc-N has
tw lonccin. It does not make it unlawful to ihlp
out of a state dead guino which tho laua of
lint hule prohibit from being taken beyond its
limits, but only such ganio us has been Killed in
violation of those laws, 'i lie dUtluetlon in im
poitant and matcilal uud iniiat bo observed,
Nor l.ave I failed la unto in this connection
the) ljst clause of the thild section ot Ihe Act,
which provides that nothing therein shall prevent
the Uanspoil.itlon of any dead blrcu or animals
Killed In season, "tho export of vvlucn Is not pro.
lilbltc,d by law in the State, Territory or District
in which the same are killed." This, It Is to bo
noted, Is not prohibitive but pcmifefilvo; it U a
jiiovlso introduced out of entra caution to limit
mid explain the extent to which tho precedln0'
elausc i to go, und cannot therefore lie held to
cnlaio it. Or in o(her words, we cannot teach
out b) vliiuo of it and cay that because the ex
port uf game which is prohibited Is not; on tho
contrary wc; nmst strictly udliero to what tho
Statute in repress terms forbids and punishes, and
tlut, as vvc lave seen, relates solely to gJino
wlilcll has been unlawfully killed. This deposes
of tho tlut two counts, and we need concern our.
selces ii.. further wjiU them.
Tho thifd count, however, remains, Tlut
charges the defendant in lubstanco with having
picparcd for shipment by Interstate eomnierco
unc) luvlrs In his ponscssion, with intent to so
ship, certain packages. One containing tho body
of a deer ami the other tho bodies 9! Qfty :ng
)Uli pheasants which had been killed In violation
ot the game laws of the State ol I'ennsy) ranis.
It aUo speaks ot a third package of fifty natty
plieaunt. but as it dop not state v,'ht;re or how
they vvero killed, under ha views already ex
tircjcd, do charge can bo prcdlcited upon them,
tlut tho count goes on to decliiru that tbs pack
sges referred to were prepared for shipment anil
were Intended to bo shipped by interstate com
merce fiom Pennsylvania to New York without
having, been plainly and clearly marked wltti (be
name and ndJrew of the thlppcr and the natum
nf tho contents, o I tut the Hlne could be reid
lly awerlaltied by lnpectlon of the outside ns
feriulrrd by llic att of ronRrcin tinder discussion,
l)oc thin charge an ludtelsblo offence within llie
meaning of th.it lawf
not ivrrniN Tim law.
rnMliiR by the miftllon whether II Ii n wifft'
dent iletrlilloii of the offence mippesed In he
I'htrged to nvrr that (lie 1,111110 spoken of Win
Killed In violation of the elite law, without:
specif.vlng just what wire the provision of tint
law, or In wlnt respect II was violated, the Itn
iKirlant Ihliiif to oberve Is tluit In nnv event
charged Is tint the ilefeiiilnil preptred the utk'
iiite.s elescrlbed for shipment, or with Intent to
ship, by Intrrsl.tle lommtiic from I'enn)lv.-tul.i,
where the gimc wiw killed, lei'N'evv York, Its in'
tended etestlnslloiii without having tlicm Inaikrd
us retiulreel by Ihe statute. 11 U very rlcar tli.it
this dcn.s not bring the enso within the law. It U
the shipment or delivery for sblpnicnt. which the
net foiblds nnd punishes; not the intent to do so,
nor tho preparation for It; or In other words,
it Is the toniptctc and not tho inrontc act which
It undertakes to control, and we have no right to
carry It a single step further, t do not mean thai
tho game or packages must have been actually put
into tho vehicles by which the shipment Is to ho
that purpose Is made unlawful, as vritl as the
lutuil transportation of It; nnd Interstate eom
mend has clearly begun so as to bring the case
within tho power of Congresa to regulate when
tin lu has been such a delivery. Hut anything
which stops sort nf this, not only would seem
to be beyoivd the authority of Coligrcw to illrect,
but what is more lo our present purjiose, doci
uot fall xvlthln the terms of the Act by which
that body has spoken, which does not assume to
punish the intcilt or the preparation, or in fact
au.v thing else than an actual delivery to the com
mon earlier for Intended Interstate transportation.
It is contended, however, that evasions ot the
Act are made punishable equally with direct xlo
htlons of It, nr.d that Is undoubtedly the case.
'Tor eich evasion or violation of this Act," it
eleclares (Section 4) "The- shipper 'shall upon con
viction pay a fine, etc." It may be difficult nnd
it is not necessary to define just what In every in
stance will amount to nil evasion, but of this
much no can be sure, and that is, that it must
be something contrived or elone In connection
with it shipment actuilly enteicd upon, and not
one wldch is in mere contemplation. The statute
Itself suggests and seeks to guaut ngtlnst some
which it assumes will be attempted by requiring
In the section just quoted, that "all packages con
taining such dead animals, birds or parts thereof,
when shipped by interstate commerce, as pro
vided in section one three (7) of this act, shall
be plainly and clearly markcel so that the name
und address of the shipper and the nature nf the
contents may be readily ascertained on inspection
of the outside of such paeKsges."
A delivery to n common earner of pack
ages not 0 marked would be an evas
ion of the Act and punlslnblc by It, but
the mere preparation of them, without more,
is not, and that is all that vvc have here. The
count declares that the defendant "eliel knowingly,
willfully and unlawfully prepare for shipment by
Interstate coinmeiie, and did have in his posses
sion, with Intent to ship by interstate commerce,
certain pickagos deseilbing them which said
pickiges 10 picparcd for shipment and Intc'ielcd
to be shipped by interstate commerce from the
stile of l'cmis)ltnnia to the state of New York,
were not then and there plainly and early
marked, etc." The whole subject of complaint
is thus seen to be the preparation and the intent.
Had the preparation gone on and the intent
which it manifested been carried out, xvc should
have undoubtedly had an evasion or an attempted
evasion of the Act, if not a direct xiolation of
it. lint the most that can be made out of what
is so stated, is an intent to evade, or the begin
nings of an attempt, cis we might Bay, ot which
the prcpaiation would bo evidence, but would
not in itself amount to an actual evasion, which
is alone prohibited. It required some further
step to be taken by which, if carried out, the
party would evade or escape the testrictivc pro
visions of the Act. The packages, as it is rxpie-ss-ly
declared, were stilt in the possession of the
defendant, and therefore under his control, and
out of due regard for the law and a final consid
eration of his duty in the picmiscs, he might
never have let them go; and yet according to the
contention of the government, although the final
step had not been taken, he might be arreAcd
anil punished as though it had. This would cut
off the locus pcnitenti.xs which is alwavs sup
posed to be open until the forbidden net has been
actually committed, and this no consideration of
the statute or the purpose to bo effected by it re
quires us to do. Could we even go bo far as to
hold that an attempt to violate the Act might
be considered an evasion of it, we should still
be met by the fact that hero at most there was
nothing but a prcpaiation and an intent, nnd ac
cording to .ill the authorities, to constitute an at
tempt there must bo something mole, 1st vUiar
ton's Crim. Law. Svct. 181. It is to bo obsuved
that the first and second counts urc open to the
same criticism in tills respect ns the third, each
of them merely chirging the preparation or con
cealment ot the game in packages for the impose
of shipping it, without more'. It may be .isvlgu"d
as an udditlonal and substantial reason fur hold
ing, as before determined that they set out i.o
According to the views expressed, I am there
fore clearly of the opinion lhat.no evasion or xlo
l.ttlon of the Act Ls disclosed In the indictment,
and that the demuirer must be sustained. Tho
hrger question whether the Act is a legitimate
ciereise of the power given to Congress by the
constitution to legislate with regard to interstate
commerce or is merely as charged a national
game law, thinly dl-gulsed, which it hail no au
thority to pass, although fully discussed nt the
argument, I do not feet called upon to 'decide.
Neither do I, the further question, whether
nssiuulug the Act to be xnlld dead game carried
in tho hands or as pait of the personal luggage
of the party who has killed it, mut be regirded
.is falling within the terms of the net when
tiansportcd under such conditions from state to
state. These arc inteiesting nnd important, but
I ptefer tn dispose ot the case upon others which
are much more obvious.
The demurier is sustained, the Indictment is set
atlde and the defendant Is discharged fiom his
It. Vv". Archbald, District Judge.

tho Philadelphia Ledger Will Sny
Today About tho Anthracite Coal
Trade The ,D., L. & W. Board as
Arranged for Today Tho Making
of Fuel from Sawdust.
There will bo a conference In Wnsh
ttiKton totlny between Senator Iliinna,
President Buer, of the lletidlnrr com
pany, nnil President Mitchell, of the
Mine Workers usHuulatlon.
Koi Homo duyst past, It Is said, there
has been ronslilernble correspondence
between these three men, and It Is un
derstood that tin effort ls to be made
before May 1 to settle all differences
thnt now exist between the operators
and the minors. There Is an armistice
on now between the coal companies and
the miners, but It expires at the end of
this month. The miners submitted a
number of requests which the coal com
panies were not inclined to srant, and
at tho laHt moment the counsel of Sena
tor Hanna wns secured and through
the effort of the National Chic Feder
ation It was agreed to lay the requests
over for one month.
The recent strength of the anthraclto
coal carrying; railroad stocks gave rise
to a rumor that all differences between
the producing companies and the min
ers had been settled, and there would
be no strike. This report seems to
have been premature,) but It Is believed
that the meeting between Senator
Hnnna, President Baer and President
Mitchell ls to settle the disagreements
that now exist.
Sawdust Fuel Briquets.
Sawdust in cako form appears to
have been used as fuel In Germany
with rather promising results. United
States Consul A. L. Frankenthal, writ
ing a short time ago from Berne, Swit
zerland, says that tho sawdust rakes
are octagon shaped, C'j inches long, 3V4
Inches wide and -"Ji of an Inch thick,
weighing about half a pound each. In
the district surrounding the factory
where these little cakes were made the
schools were heated by them, the com
bustion leaving very little ahh and pro
ceeding -without a large llame. No
binding Ingredient is said to be used,
the sawdust being simply dried and
pressed into the desired briquette shape,
and owing thus to the absence of tarry
or oily substances there is no smoke
in burning. The weight of such a bri
quette Indicates the heavy pressure
under which it takes Its shape, and
the edges look like polished oak. In
fact, it Is heavier than a piece of hard
wood of the same size. The demand
created by the popularity ot the fuel
exceeded the supply of sawdust obtain
able in the vicinity of the factory, and
shiploads were, therefore, procured
from Sweden and carloads from distant
manufactories. Sawdust, which pre
viously could be had for the asking,
demanded a market price as soon as it
became known that a certain factory
could make use of it. Even then it was
profitable to manufacture the bri
quettes; but unfortunately, the factory
was destroyed by fire and operations
came to a standstill. Making sawdust
briquettes of this kind would, therefore,
seem to be worth Inquiring into fur
ther. Cassler's Magazine.
The Coal Situation.
The Philadelphia Ledger, in its coal
article today, will say:
The anthracite coal trade develops
considerable activity, as the flxlng of
the spring coal prices and arrangement
of discounts have given such stability
that the dealers are now ordering more
coal. It is quite evident that the coal
carrying companies will have to pro
vide more cars to keep up with the
present rate of ordering for domestic
supply. The output for April is ex
pected to considerably exceed thnt of
March, which amounted to 3,81S,767
tons. Coastwise shipments are reported
as better, now that the prices are fixed,
but there Is hardly as much coal as yet
moving up the lakes as had been an
ticipated after the opening of naviga
tion. Five Per Cent. Increase.
The Graff Furnace company of Dick
son City, manufacturers of stoves and
furnaces, has granted their moulders
and mounters a voluntary Increase of
Jive per cent to take effect as of April 1.
This industry is a recent acquisition
to this valley and Is already doing a
thriving business, employing about half
a hundred hands, most of them skilled

dcalre to wo the prince; to, thinking to play n
trick 011 tho Innocent .voutli, he struck off bcnie
cards lontalnlug a number ot meaningless cen
times et in German t)pe, and gave nuo to tho
)oiirutstrr. J" tho upper left-hand coiner was Hie

I.rft." "fids cord," Mid the printer, "will ad
mit you to Biosd sticet station at the tlmo for
Prince llinr.v's arrival." Annrd with bis pass
poif, tho boy stalled out III gteat glee, followed
by several men fiom tho office, who had been
told of the Jcko nnd who vveio anxious to tro tho
fun, Tho irtini presided Ids lord In turn to a
leservc policeman, a rallrotd cmplojc, and a
