To nse up men so fast."

At almost every C. P. Conrt held in this
county and in every county in the State,
the hardest fought cases tried, aud the
ones in which the evidence is the most
conflicting, are those regarding division or
bounddry lines, and in very few of these
cases is the verdict of the jury satisfactory
to either or both parties. That fact was
illustrated in at leatt two cases tried dur
ing the late C. P. Court held here, and
these results are duo to the obliteration, of
old land marks, mistakes made by sur
veyors years ago and those made today;
carelessness, selfishness, etc.: and in all
such cases a little adroit evidence is liable
to mislead a jury.
The best way to settle these cases would,
we think, be by a Commission in Lines or
Boundaries, appointed by the Court and
including ail the responsible civil engineers
of the county; each party to a dispute to
select one, and they two to select, or the
Court to appoint, a third and the decision
of this Board to be final. Besides the well
known civil engineers and surveyors of this
town, there are several able surveyors
scattered through the county, such as Levi
Porter,Geo. H. Graham,;l. X. Meals, Enos.
McDonald, B. F. Hilliard, and E. E.
Manrhoff and others,—the decision of any
three of whom on a disputed line or
boundary, would in all probality be more
satisfactory than the guess work of a jury
from the evidence presented to tbem; and
that manner of settling the dispute and
establishing line would cost but a
fraction of the expense of a suit in Court.
Judge Stowe ol Allegheny county talked
very plainly to the grand jury of that
county Monday. The opening sentences
of his "charge" were as follows:
"There never was a time in the history
of Allegheny county when it became the
duty of courts and juries to steadily and
strictly seek to enforce the law for the
punuhuieut of offenders and the preserva
tiin of the public peace more than now.
The many acts of personal violence, result
ing in bloodshed aud often in murder, the
numerous robberies of a bold and apparent
ly reckless character, committeed upon
the most public highways, the burglaries
and housebreakings by day and by night,
and worse and most alarming of all, the
riots and resistance which have lately oc
curred within the limits of our county, and
the apparent indiffi-redce with which tho
public seem to look upon the offences, es
pecially the latter, are calculated to im
press one with the idea that our boasted
liberty is fast passing into anarchy, aud
there is something radically wrong "some
whore, either in our system of government
and the laws under which we profess to
live, or in the means provided for protec
tion to life and property, and their enforce
ment for the detection and punishment ol
crime. Indeed, principles have been late
ly proclaimed in open court of the most
violent and anarchistic character, in direct
opposition to well settled law, and which,
it allowed to prevail, would be subversive
of all civil government.

MR DEAR Slß:—The Butler Coun

been incorporated by our Court as an or
ganizalkm, authorized by law to collect
funds and take other necessary steps for

charter, at a meeting this day held., ap
pointed two well-known, energetic citizens
in each election district in this couuty. as
collectors of funds in their respective dis
tricts, in aid of the erection of this monu
ment' Mr. and yourself have been
appointed for the township of- . You
will please confer together and arrange for
a thorough canvass of your district. All
persons who pay one dollar or more to the
monument fund are, by charter, members
of the association, and have a right to vote
at all its meetings. Smaller amounts will
also be most gratetnlly received. Every
person in your district should have an op
portunity to subscribe. This, of course
includes women and.children. The larger
the numb.T of subscribers the more credit
able will be the work of tho people of
Butler county.
Prompt action on the part of collectors
is earnestly requested. Reports from all
collectors will be expected on or before
January, 9th, 1893. On or before that
date each collector will enclose his sub
scription lM>ok in the envelope sent here
with, addressed to I. J. ilcC'andless.Secre
tary of the Roard. and tie lunds collected
to Charles Dully. Treasurer. Ou the 9th
of January. 1893, the Board of Directors
will determine the cost of the monument,
and this determination will be based on
the amounts subscribed, as shown by the
subscription books returned from each dis
Butler county has already too -long de
layed this important work, which should
have been entered upou a quarter of a cen
tuary since. We are behind most of our
sister counties in the State in our patriot
ic effort- Every impulse of gratitude and
patriotism should lead ns now to put forth
a determined effort to complete within the
next year a monument worthy of our he
roic dead and ereaitable to the county
which they have honored with the sacrifice
of thpir lives.
The Board of Directors would not indi
cate the subscription tbey expect from any
district. They may be allowed to suggest,
however, that in this county of Butler,
containing over ten thousand voters, a
subscription which would in the aggregate
amount to one dollar for each voter, would
insure us a monument thai would compare
fuvorably with any in the State. The kind
of monument Butler county is to have now
depends upon tho collectors in the several
districts. Do your best to make the work
a success

and these were held by the Butler Lodge

The members of the Lodge met at their

present; Braid Black presided; the ritual
of the order for such services was read;
Rev. Hemingwray delivered the sermon;
Dr. Black sang a solo, Miss Campbell rend

Armory Opera House, Monday, Dec.
If literary merit, unquestioned origin
ality, the introduction ot a long array of
unique specialities and a company of re
markable strength are to be regarded as
factors in the success of a farce-comedy,
that much discussed production "Lord
Kooney," the latest effort ol Mr. Carol),
should certaiul verify all the favorable
predictions that have been made concern
ing it. Apart entirely from the intrinsic
worth of the piece, it should score an un
equivocal success by reason aloue of the
excellent calibre of the artists engaged in
its interpretation. There is certanly no
instance on record of any similar dramatic
attraction being supported by a so power
tul and eveuly balanced cast as is the
cast with "Lord Kooney." Katie, Mattie
and Jose Kooney are the bright stars of
the piece and do a.irae clever specialities
during the performonce.
