—The flurry iu soda ash aud other chem

member of the company, and one of tho
largest of the Pittsburg stockholders, sai.l
yesterday: "We will at once proceed to
enlarge our plant so as to be able to meet
the demand for soda ash and other special
ties for which there is a large home de
mand. We have plenty of qinco to cv
paml it to any extent desired. The pro
posed improvement will co t considerable
money, but we believe business will justify
it." There is a large amount ol Pittsburg
capital invested iu this enterprise, which
makes it of special local interest. —Pitts-

—The I'ardon Hoard, at it.s session at
llarrisburg last week had a curious case to
comider. In 1874, ('has. Larrabec was
tried aud convicted in Venango county of
tLe murder of Lewis Williams, and lie was
sentenced to death. In ls7ii Larrabee's
sentence was commuted to impi iaonment
for life, and he is serving his time iu the
Western l'enitentiary. Larrabec i 5 a white
man and Williams was a negro, who work
cd about the hotels in Oil City. Mrs. Wil
liams, it was alleged, was a terror and
mad<! William's home life so unbearable
that he preferred death to living with her.
So, one day when he and Larrabco were
hunting together neir oil City, lie told his
case to Larrabec and begged him to shoot
him. Williams did not want to run the
risk of etcfnal punishment hereafter, and
thorefore wouldn't kill himself. Larrabec,
who had been drinking heavily <>f I'etro
leuin Centre whisky, finally yielded tn
"Williams' urging., aud emptied his gun into
the back of the negro's head, ft was a
case of suicide by proxy, if the expression
may be allowed. The application for pardon
was signed by Judjie Trnukey, who tried
the case; by Associate Judges McCoruiiek
aud Connelly, and by many prominent cit
izens of Tenaugo county. It is the preva
lent opinion that Larrabec has been surti
ciently punished and a pardon is expected.
Ail evidence of Butler's Grovvt h.
There i 3 no better evidence of the pros
perous and steady growth of a place than
the enlargement of its general business
area. If this be true, the grocery firm of
Kirkpatrick A Heed show one of the best
evidences of the town's prosperity iu their
new store at No. fiS X. Main St. Located
at a point at which a few years ago tbeir
investment of SO,OOO would have boon term
ed the licighlh of folly.and carrying a stock
which would alike have seemed ruinous,
they to day command one of the best
trades of the town and bear the reputation
of a sonnd and reliable house. They carry
over twice the stoek carried by them in
their old stand nearer the contro of the
town, and their bnsiness has much more
than doubled. This is certainly success.
The senior member of the firm, John
Reed, is well known in lintler. lie is a
son of John Reed, of Buffalo township,and
was for many years salesman in the lirws
of Uitter & Kalstou aud B. C. Iluselton,
whero ho made many friends. Will Kirk
patrick, the junior member, is also well
and favorably known in this place, 110 is
a son of David Kirkpatrick of Union ville,
and has been iu the grocery business iu
Butler for some years. Together, the gen
tlemen make what is termed "a strong
team," aud their rapidly increasing trade
is but the natural result of their capability,
aided by their honest efforts to secure a
share of tho patronage of the town.

when Judge Ilazen said lie would an noil no

o'clock. Nearly nil the applicant; remain

Friday afternoon a large audience had a
sembled iu the courtroom
Judge Hitzen premised tho reading
the list with a few remarks. lie said that
a year ago lie had hoped that he would
not again be called upon to hold a license
court, that he tin u expected that the Con
stitutinnal Amendment election would ft
tie the matter, but we all know the re nit
of that election, aud that the laws regard
itig the sale of liquors had not been chang
ed; the duties of the court were the same
now as then, the question of granting or
refusing license was for the legislature and
not the court, and that many good people
had been misled in this matter; then he
quoted Judge Agucw's decision on tho di
cretiou ol the court, each case must stand
on its own merits, each of the applicants
here had stated under oath that he
had observed lite laws in the management
of his business but yet there was too much
drunkenness iu Bntler county; ho hoped
none of the applicants feared the pirates
who attacked tlieir business aud again
warned them. A license is a monopoly,
none dared sell in violation of the law. and
yet there was too much drunkenness in
the streets and alleys of Bntler, in Saxon
burg, in Evans City and in towns where
there are no licen ed houses; licensed
houses can not sell on Sunday, to minors,
men of intemperate habits, men visibly af
feeted, or on election days and he would
inquire stringently a- to their observance
of tho law, was happy to gay that the char
acti-r of the applicant as sworn to by their
neighbor's was good.
Then he opened the docket and .cud bis
decisions as follows:

A dispatch from New Castle, dated last
Thursday said:—The liquor license ques
tion is settled for another year. Of the 31
applicants only three were refused, two
because tho houses were not necessary,
and the other for tho violation of the law.
In tho latter ease Judge McMichaol made
an important ruling. The evidence shown
in the application of W. W. Simpson to
keep a hotel at Edinbnrg. said that last
summer Mr. Simpson, who had license
last year, had sold liquor to two minors.
Tho minors were placed on the stand, and
swore that they had been asked by Mr.
Simpson if thoy were of age, and they told
him they were. Their misrepresentation
was successful, and they scoured the liquor
and drank it iu the house.
The Judge then remarked, "there is no
necessity for preceding further in this case.
Mr. Simpson, perhaps, innocently violated
the law, and the boys should lie punished
for misrepresentation, but this does not
excuse tho fact bhat Mr. Simpson has vio
lated the law, and the license is therefore
At tho session of Court last Friday,
Judge llazen refused to approve of the in
quest held by Esq. Easloy on the bodies of
I'eter Sostaris and I'eter Siljak, the two
men killed by a land slide on the new rail
road, and adds in his order: "All inquest
should not be held if the cause of the death
be not doubtful, and there is no reason to
suspect that it implicates any one. An in
quest should only be held when there are
suspicions circumstances attending the
death." The costs in this Case, aggregating
about $35, will, therefore, not be paid.
