new aud eveu more novel contest for the
Court met Monday afternoon at cue o'clock
with Jtdije Hazen rn >he bench. The court
room was crowded with people anxious to
hear the result of the judge's deliberations ou
the licence question, and he promptly satis
fied their curiosity by opening the license
docket and reading his entries granting li
cets's to sixteen of the ipplicints, hoi Hag
one over and refusing the others. Those
granted were all tavern licenses, aud were to
Campbell, Sellers, Reiching, Lowry and
Eitenmullcr ot Butler, Miller and Stokey of
Evans City, Beam of Harmony. For |uer and
Harding of Millerstown, Stewart of lten
f ew, Weitzel, Mulho'.iand and Laufce of Sax
ouburg, and Stotey and Strohecker of /.-• lie
nople. The license of Gamble, merchant,
was granted later in the day.
After reading his decisions Judge Hazen
made a little speefih to the successful appli
cants, hoping they would prove themselves
wortbv of the great privilege accorded them,
that he had admini-tered the law as he uu
derstood it, that the licensed houses must
have meals at all hours for travellers, that
travellers entered their houses as a matter of
right, that the licensed houses must not keep
their bars open too late at night and must
not sell to minors or men of iutruiperate hab
its, on Sunday or Election day, that they
would be expected to aid the officers ot the
law in stopping the illegal sale ot liquor ami
place themsel ve«i on the side ot law pud or
der, and that any failure on 'heir part to do
so would tell against them hereafter.
The crowd then dispersed, some happy,
some otherwise, aud regular oart assembled
with both Judges Hazen and McMichael on
the bench, the jury list was read over, two
cases were called, JuJee Mi*Micbael aud his
court retiring to the arbitration room, and up

Republican County Committee
The Countv Committee had a very
pleasant meeting in the office of S. F.
Bowser, Esq., last Monday afternoon.
The meeting was called to order by
Chairman Abrams, who stated that
its object was to fix the time of hold
ing the primary election. Mr. Mates,
the secretary, was sick, and Mr. Mc-
Pherrin was elected secretary in his
Mr. Wilson moved that Saturday,
June 4, be selected as the day for the
Primary. This motion was second
ed, add after being thoroughly dis
cussed, was adopted by a uuanimous
vote, aud the Primary for this year
will be held on Saturday, June 4.
Mr. Welsh suggested that the
County Chairman see that the proper
blanks were at all the poling places,
which be promised to do.
A motion was made that the tick
ets for the primary contain the names
of all the candidates, and that the
voter mark off all but the uames of
those he wishes to vote for. This
motion was not carried, but a com
mittee consisting ot Abrams, Hoover,
Wilson and Seaton was appointed to
consider the matter.
Mr. Feunell was in favor of prohib
iting the candidates from cauvassing
on account of their taking up so much
of the voters time, but Mr. Seaton, of
Marion, said that he was always glad
to see the candidates, and that it rest
ed him to talk to them.
Mr. Campbell referred to the fact
that Butler would probably be divid
ed into three wards aud hereafter
have three votes iu the committee
Mr. English referred to the matter
of members of other organizations
voting at our primary, aud thought
that some action should be taken iu
the matter, and it was discussed, but
it seemed to be the opinion of the
committee that the present rules of
the parly were sufficiently stringent.

Rev. Haddock's Murder.
A murder trial is now ou at Sioux
City, lowa, that must attract general
attention, Johu Arensdorf, a leading
brewer of that city, aud nine others
have been placed on trial for the mur
der of Rev. George C. Haddock, a
Methodist preacher, ou the night of
August 3d last. The murdered man
had made himself conspicuous by his
efforts to enforce the prohibitory law
in that city, and being a man of cour
age and brains was making it very
uncomfortable for the men who were
breaking the law. He was waylaid
in the darkness cf the night while on
his way home and was instantly kill
ed by a pistol shot.
Arensdorf, the leading brewer of
the place, and uine others were indict
ed for the crime. Arensdorf will be
tried first, and the result in his case
will determine the fate of the others.
The prohibitionists claim the to be
able to establish the existence of a
widespread conspiracy of the liquor
dealers, culminating iu this murder.
