The Supreme Court of Pennsylvania has
handed down a decision that when an un
successful prosecutor in a Quarter Sessions
case is charged with the costs and refuses
to pay he cannot be seut to jail. This de
cision will probably increase the number
of verdicts of "not guilty, but defendant to
pay the costs." It will also make District
Attorneys more careful in bringing suits,
for the prospect of getting costs out of the
defendant is generally less hopeful than
the chances of getting them out of the
prosecutor. — Ex.
The recent decisions of the Supreme
Court, allowing game killed in other States
to be sold in this State, though out of
season with us, is not pleasing to sports
men, though it will bo received with favor
by game dealers, as it will enable them to
deal in game from other States when the
seasoft of killing is closed in this. Wm.
Wilkinson, a dealer in Pittsburg, was con
victed in the Court of Quarter Sessions of
selling quail out of season and lined #2OO,
twenty of the birds being found in his pos
session. The birds were proven to have
been shot during the quail season in
Missouri and brought here. Mr. V i'kin
son appealed with the above result. Uni
form game laws for all the States are need
ed to correct the present destructive usages
and save the game.
THE BOODLER CASES.
The arguments in the appeals of Messrs.
Tate, Downing and Shalt'er from the judg
ment of Judge llazen, in committing them
to jail for contempt of Court in refusing to
answer at the trial of Wallace at New
Castle, were heard by the Supreme Court,
sitting at Philadelphia, last Monday.
The defendants' counsel aver that Sec
tion 32 of Article 3 of the State Constitu
tion refers to Legislative bribery alone
and does not cover this case; while the
counsel for the Commonwealth think it
does, and that the Court below had proper
jurisdiction over the persons and subject
matter of the case.
The language of that section of the Con
stitution is general, though it is placed
under the head of Legislation.

bear; in fact, it is the farmers' friend

able. The coming session of the
Legislature and Congress will be of
great interest to the agricultural
class, and all news of importance to
them will be fonnd in the Weekly
Commercial Oazelte. Its market
reports are the authorities for buying
and selling in Pittsburg, where it is
recognized as such by all dealers.
Don't be without it. It will save
you annually many times the price of

To The Public.
We wish to take this occasion to
extend to oar patrons our cordial
thanks for their trade during the past
year. The purchase of our present
storeroom and our removal thereto
nearly a year ago, was, in a measure,
an experiment, but the support we
have received has more than justified
our course. Oar sales have b»»en fully
one half larger that we counted on,
and the plain inference from this fact
cannot be other than that the people
want the best. Our aim has been
to supply the best obtainable A
member of the firm makes a weekly
trip to the city in search of the
newest and best. In the spring two
trips a week will be made. This fact
assists materially in our success As
to price, we will not be undersold by
anyone. We coold not keep our
trade and allow it. But the high
standard we have set for the quality
of our goods will not be altered. Our
stock is entirely new and fresh.
We hope for a continuauce during
the coming year of the patronage
that we have bad in the past. We
shall be better sitaated than ever be
fore for satisfying all its demands.
We have without a doubt as clean,
as fresh, and as desirable a stock of
groceries as can be found in the
town. Our aim is—the best. We
will not allow anything else to come
to our house, mach less to leave it.
A standard grade and the lowest
price consistent with it. We do not
publish our price list. Those who
deal with as know that our prices are
the same that others are selling at.
Just as many pounds of sugar may
be bought here at at any other place
for sl. Jußt as many pounds of Cali
fornia fruit of first quality, Just as
many bars of soap, cans of corn or
tomatoes, aod pounds of teas and
coffee. In short our prices are as
low as the lowest.

secure a lively boy in this locality to

the best selling papers in the United
States. It is supplied to dealers on
very liberal terms, the Company
taking back all unsold copies and re
quiring payment only for such papers
as are sold.
Only one boy is appointed in a

giving good business references, will
probably get the agency. State how
many papers you think you can sell
at five cents each, and they will at
