V The conviction of Policemen McGrady
for th& shooting of John Bitte. alia-
Miller. came as a surprise to most of
our people, last week, and, perhaps,
some of our attorneys will take excep
tion to Judge Wilson's ruling that a
policeman cannot arrest for a misde
meanor excepting on sight of tbe offense
committed, or on warrant for the same.
But be that as it may the shooting of
an escaping prisoner, accused only of a
misdemeanor, could not be justified,
under the law, and McGrady was con
victed and sentenced.
An effort will be made to secure Mc-
Grady's pardon.
The annual gathering of the teachers
in Butler, reminds many of us that we
missed tbe most interesting, important
and responsible period of human exist
ence by neglecting to teach school.
All the great men this country has
produced have, at some period of their
lives, taught school, and thereby laid
the foundation for their future great
The voung men attending the Insti
tute, this week, will be our future
legislators, governors and presidents
no others need apply—and as for the
young ladies, they are destined to be
the happiest of wives. 1
All the rosds of Butler county have
been either too rough or too smooth,
this week, owing to an unusual combi
nation of frost and moisture, and that
remainds us that this is a good time to
talk about roads—good roads. Penn
sylvania is far behind several of the
states in the matter of roads, and we
see it stated that Senator Sproul of Del
aware county will have a road bill ready
for the next legislature to consider.
His plan, is the creation of a state
highway commission composed of three
persons, with a State engineer. It is
proposed that the commission shall
work with the County Commissioners,
and that the expense of construction
shall be divided between the state, the
county and the township. An appro
priation of six millions is contemplated,
but only one million is to be expended
in a year. This is moderate. A million
dollars spread about the state every
twelve months in connection with the
money provided by the localities affect
ed would make a most excellent start,
but what is the matter with spreading
tbe Flinn road bill oyer the state. It
has done wonders In Allegheny county.
The railroad in Cuba from Havana to
Santiago, has been completed and open
ed for traffic and travel. It was built
by Americans and with American capi
tal. It traverses the central part of the
island and is called the "Back-bone
railroad. What the Cubans will do
with it, and how they will treat the
owners of the road remains to b« seen.
The ingratitude they have shown their
benefactors ought to teach this Nation
not to interfere too brashly in the pun
ishment now being given by the Eng
lish and Germans to the same blood in
Venezuela—a mixture of Spanish, na
tive and negro—and which they proba
bly deserve.
In medical circles the visit of Dr. Lor
*" en z, the celebrated Vienna Specialist, to
this country has made a sensation. He
is a "dry surgeon" or osteopath; and be
ginning with the unheralded operation
on the daughter of a Chicago million
oire, for which he is said to have receiv
ed a fabulous fee, he has traveled ex
tensively and has operated on many
persons, but not on one per cent of
those who have sought his services. It
is probable that very many people never
heard of congenital hip dislocation un
til he arrived, and the number who
were suddenly found to be suffering
from this cause has been a matter of as
tonishment. Of course they are not
many compared with the eighty mil
lions of inhabitants of the country, but
they aggregate a large number and the
public has been touched at the knowl
edge of their miseries. That so many
cures are possible by tbe Lorenz method
is a glad surprise, since most of the yic
tims have hitherto been doomed to life-
lout? affliction.
He is not a miracle worker, as some
seem to think, but simply a surgeon of
great intelligence, large experience and
phenomenal strength, who performs
feats that have hitherto been supposed
impossible. The fact that the whole
country has been interested in his work
shows how strong is the feeling of sym
pathy for the suffering, a feeling which
finds its expression every year in the
many millions that are voluntarily giv
en to help suffering humanity.
The coercion of Venezuela by the
English and Germans has become of
moment to the United States.
What is known in diplomacy as a
"pacific blockade" was established on
Wednesday of last week and cn the
same day three Venezuelan gunboats
going in to the harbor La Guayra were
seized with their crews,numbering over
three hundred men. They are reported
to have been taken out to sea and two
of them sunk, under circumstances
which have not been made quite clear.
The British have disclaimed responsi
bility for this act; which it would be
difficult to justify, and which is said ie
have been committed by the Germans.
While these things were happening
on the sea coast Castro was firing the
popular heart with inflammatory procla
mations at the capital. One of his first
acts after the presentation of the ulti
matum was to order the arrest of all the
German and British subjects in the
country. In some of the reports this is
said to have been done in retaliation for
the seizure and destruction of the Vene
zuelan vessels, but other dispatches in
dicate that the arrests had taken place
before such seizure and destruction had
become known. However that may be,
they were improper, and Minister
Bowen succeeded in persuading Castro
to annul them. All of the arrested
persons were subsequently released.
x Whether the German and British Con
suls, each of whom is a Venezulelan
citizen, who were arrested at Puerto
Caliello, have also been set at liberty
remains in doubt.
On Friday things took another and a
surprising turn. Minister Bowen cabled
the information to the Department of
State at Washington that he hud been
asked by President Castro tc act as
mediator between Venezuela and the
powers pressing for a settlemet. He
was instructed in reply that he was at
liberty to act in that capacity, but that
it was to lie distinctly understood that
in any negotiations instituted by him
looking toward a settlement of the ex
iting controversies by means of arbi
tration he was representing Venezuela {
and not the United States. In other]
words, Mr. Bowen may interjiose his
good offices in behalf of Venezula in
this connection, jnat as in another con
nection ho is doing what he can to pro
tect the interests of Germany and Great
On Saturday British and German
veef'ls opened fire on the forts at Puerto |
Cal#*llo and soon destroyed them.
On Monday Italy announced that she,
also, had some claims against Vene
zuela, and sent some warships to take
part in the "pacific blockade."
On Tuesday Secretary Hay cabled to
Ambassador Tower at Berlin to ask the
German Government to define for this
[ country exactly what is meant by a
' 'peaceful blockade."
Everywhere the English go in this
this world they improve the country-
Their latest feat in that direction is the
building of an immense dam, a mile and
half long, across the Nile in upper
Egypt. They are the virtual masters of
that country now, and they want to in
crease its value. The dam was begun
several years ago, and was formally de
clared opened or finished a few days
The purpose is so to regulate the flow
of the Nile that tbe immense mass of
water which used to run to waste will
be impounded, so that it may be drawn
upon as needed. All the sluices will be
closed from December to March after
the annual floods have passed and at a
time when the water is free from the
silt which serves such a valuable end in
fertilizing the Egyptian valley. When
the natural reservoir formed by the
river banks is full, which will generally
happen early in March, enough of the
top sluice gates will be opened to let
through the daily flow. In May, when
the agricultural demand for water ex
ceeds the normal supply, other gates
will be opened and through that month
and June the accumulated store of
water will be gradually distributed. By
July all the sluice gates will be open to
permit the passage of the flood and they
will remain open from that time until
the shall have subsided. Then
they will be closed again and the same
round of operations repeated.
There can be no doubt as to the im
mense beneSt which this great work
will confer upon the Egyptian people.
In itself it constitutes a convincing vin
dication of the occupation of Egypt by
Great Britain, an occupation which has
been in every way an unquestioned
blessing to those immediately concerned.

tary of the Commonwealth: W. B. Rod

Fifty-one years ago Galusha A. Grow
went to Congress from a district of this
state, as the successor of David Wilmot
of "proviso" fame. He was Speaker of
the House during the first two years of
the Civil War; he is now an Octogena
rian and it is understood that his speech
last week, on an educational bill was
his valedictory.
Policeman McGrady Convicted.
When the trial of Policeman James
McGrady commenced last Thursday, no
more than ordinary interest was taken
in it, but before its finish circumstances
had arisen which made it extremely in
teresting, memorable and somewhat
' The charge against McGready was
manslaughter' for the killing of John
Bitte, alias Edward Miller, aboilermak
er employed at the car works, who orig
inally came from Cincinnati, where he
had been a ward politician and office
The evidence in the case showed that
McGrady had been called to the Angert
boarding house on the Island by a mes
sage from Mrs. Angert to arrest Bitte
who was drunk and had beaten Phil
Brady, another boader, in front of the
house; and a short time afterward re
turned and renewed the quarrel in the
the house after Mrs. Angert had order
ed him to leave. It was while he was
fighting in the house that McGrady was
called from his own home which is
across the street from Angert's.
He found Bitte in front of tbe house;
Mrs. Angert asked the Policeman to ar
iest him: McGrady asked her if she
would appear against Bitte, she said
yes and he then made the arrest; Bitte
walked a few steps quietly with the of
ficer, when the latter tried to put hand
cuffs on him; Bitte then resisted and
asked why he had been arrested; he was
told for disorderliness; Bitte said "I'll
not stand for that;' grappled with Mc-
Grady, took away his mace, knocked
him down and started to run. He had
gone but a few steps when McGrady
raised partly from the ground, called to
Bitte to stop and then fired. The
bullet struck him in the left side and
passed into the lower part of the plural
cavity, severving an artery and Bitte
died in the Butler Hospital the next
The witnesses for the Commonwealth
were mostly companions and fellow
boarders with Bitte, one of whom testi
fied that he was opposed to "law and
The unexpected part of the trial came
when District Attorney Henninger
raised the point that McGrady's arrest
of Bitte was not a legal one because the
officer had no warrant, which alone
would have justified him in arresting a
man whom he did not see committing
anv offence, and did know had commit
ted one, and that Bitte had a right to
use what ever force was necessaay to
regain his liberty from the officer, and
MeGrady had no more right tc arrest or
shoot Bitte than any private citizen
had. Judge Harry D. Wilson of Clarion,
who presided at the trial, sustained the
District Attorney, ruling that an officer
without a warrant can arrest only when
ho sees or knows a violation of an ordi
nance or a misdimeanor committed by
the prisoner or has suspicion that a
felony has been committed He then
instructed the jury according to the
facts, adhering closely to the law, and
McGrady's conviction followed Friday
afternoon. This was a surprise to the
public. A motion for a new trial was
at once made by Attorneys McQuistion,
Forquer, Painter and Murrin, Mc-
Grady's counsel. One of the points
raised was that since the trial com
menced it was learned that one jury
man had remarked that he would stay
out till he rotted rather than see Mc-
Grady acquitted. The motion was
argued Friday evening. A crowd filling
the court room to the walls during the
session. The argument was continued
until Saturday afternoon when Judge
Wilson refused a new trial, called Mc-
Grady to the Bar, and after remarking
on the seriousness of the offence and the
officer's evident innocenoe of wrong in
tent and supposition that he was acting
according to his duty, fined him SSOO
and sent him to jail for two and one
half years.
McGrady is now in jail. General
sympathy is expressed for him and an
effort will undoubtedly be made to
secure his pardon. He has a wife and
family of little children living on West
Concord Township.

The wise men from the East followed a
bright and guiding star—it seemed
so far away.
At last it stood still above the stable

The stars together Bang in sweetest har

Nor did ho make his advent with pomp
and great display;
No he was born in a stable and his soft

At his second coming every eye shall
Him behold;
And he will judge the earth in rightous

On the great last day when on the earth
He will appear,
The wicked snail stand before him in
trembling and fear;
But the rightous will rejoice, saying,

It is Christ our blessed Savior, the Babe

No better combination, as we prepare
it, could be formulated to act more spe
cifically upon the Kidneys and Liver
than Marsh Root. As a Liver Invigor
ator Marsh Root is now a conceded faet,
and where tho Liver is torpid and sluir
tfish Constipation manifest, the body
tired, the eyes blurred, and weakened,
the complexion poor, a sensation of dull
headaches, and laDK"or prevailing,
Marsh Root will overcome them.
As to the Efficacy of Marsh Root, and
its fight against Kidney Diseases, yon
can be your own judge if yon are an af
flieted, and if it fails to relieve or euro
you, take the bottlo bark to your Drug
gist and he will five you your
money back. Marsh Root stands for
the cure of Inflammation or Catarrh of
the Bladder, Blocked Kidneys, Scalding
Urine, Rheumatic (lout. Gravel, Uric
Acid, etc. The organs that require the
most careful attention (and are the most
often neglected, and the human filters
or strainers the Kidneys, and therefor
doubly require your attention.
