At the Democratic convention in But

nominee of last year was present, and
stated that he had made a list of the

Pennsylvania by its recent press.gag

ers here condemn it with the severest
terms, but are comforting themselves
with the belief that the Democracy will
lose sight of it in a few months. Free
dom of discussion was one of the first
battle cries of Republicanism in the
days when the anti-slavery
papers were thrown out of the
mails below the old Mason and
Dixon line. And it was in the same
State of Pennsylvania, at the Pittsburg
convention which nominated Fremont,
that the declaration was first made.

DITRIN<; an automobile race in
France, last week ten men were killed
and several injured. One man got his
machine up to eighty-eight miles an

for the race but withdrew. One
machine was upset and burned, with
its owner under it. The Government
stopped the race, which was to have
been from Paris to Madrid,
Illustrating Its Character.
The report that the first test of the
Salus-Grady libel act is to come from
Connellsville, where five Councilmen
resent charges made against them by a
local paper, is discussed far and wide as
an illustration of that net. The fact is,
however, that the only bearing of the
case on the new enactment is to show
its utter remoteness from its professed
The charge made was that the
Councilmen used their official positions
to extort, or attempt to extort, passes
from a railroad company. If this
charge was false it was libel, and the
remedy under the old law was more
severe thin under the new one. Under
the act of 1901, if it was shown that
sach a false charge was made either
maliciously or negligently, exemplary
damages could be awarded if the jury
deemed proper. Under the nev law
negligence must be shown, and only
compensatory damages, including re
compense for "feelings," could be ob
tained. On the other hand, if the
chirge is true, it is privileged matter
under the Constitution.
For defamation of either public men
c- private citizens the new law adds
nothing to the penalties already exist
ing. It is impossible to suppose that
any of its supporters believed its pur
pose to be to reach these real abuses.
Its sole effect is to open the door to
petty prosecutions for the innocent aud
non-libelous slips of newspapers, and
the purpose of its enactment, so far as
can be seen, is to exhibit the hatred of
the political masters of the State for
Proposed Trolley to Pittsburg:.
Arrangements are being made by a
syndicate of Pittsburg and Butler cap
italists, represented by J. V. Ritts of
Butler County National Bank and John
B. Chapman, a well-known Pittsburg
attorney, for the construction of a trac
tion road between Pittsburg and Butler
at the cost of about $500,000. A verbal
understanding is said to have lieen
reached with the officials of tho Pitts
burg Railways Company regarding a
proposed connection at Etna, and the
right to use the Butler plank road is
said to have been procured. The pro
moters are heavy owners in the Butler
Street Railway Company. The scheme
is to build a line along the Butler plank
road from Etna, here connection will be
made with the Millvale, Etna Sliarps
bnrg line of the Pittsburg Railways
Company. Some of the grades on the
plank road are heavy, especially neat
tiakerstown and Tall Cavey hill, but
* hey arenot considered as obstructing the
success of the road. The territory
through which the road would go has
not been extensiyely developed but it is
believed that a traction road operating
fa-1 cars will assist in building up rap
idly the beautiful valleys betweeu Alle
gheny and Butler.
The growth of Butler has been very
heavy, but the passenger transportation
facilities are not believed to have been
equal to the strides taken in population
Butler now has four railroads and a
traction line is deemed necessary.
About 25 miles of track will be neces
sary to carry the road to Etna
A charter was obtained a few days
a - ) by R. W. Ilervey and others for a

Butler County Land Titles.
(Continued from May 14th >
The Acts of March 12, 17*;!. ai-d
March 24, 1785, defined the donation
district, and provided for surveying,
drawing by lots, etc., appointment of
agents, sale of plots, etc , and all tracts
not taken under them were offered at
public sale under the Act of April :!rd,
1*703. at seven pounds and ten shillings,
equal to about s3o.oo,per hundred acres.
"Very many adventurous settlers pass
ed over the Allegheny, located them
selves at different point* within the
limits of the territory now opened for
settlement, commenced improvements,
and applied for warrents. But the
hostilities of the Indians prevented, al
most universally, their complying with
the legal terms of the settlement, neces
sary to complete their titles. They
were compelled to abandon their im
provements, and retire beyond the river;
and thus exceedingly perplexing ques
tions arose in regard to the true owmr
ship of the lands they had claimed.
The difficulties that thus arose IU re
gard tc the titles of the settlers to their
claims, were greatly enhanced by the
operations of certain land companies
that were organized with a view of
speculating iu the lauds of this region.
The most prominent of these were the
North American Land Company, the
Pennsylvania Population Company, and
the Holland Land Company.
The North American Land Company
has already been referred to. Soon
after the passage of the Act of 1.
John Nicholson, who was previously in
tested in the North American Company,
applied at the land oflSce for three
hundred and ninety warrents, to be
located in the Triangle, anil for two
hundred and fifty warrents, to be locat
ed on the waters of Beaver creek
representing. in all. about two hundred
and sixty thousand acres. Before, how
ever. completing his purchase, the
Pennsylvania Population Company was
formed, of which he was made Presi
dent, and Messrs Cafenove, Irvine,
Mead, Leet, Hoge and Stewart, Man
"The capital stock of the company con
sisted of two thousand five hundred
shares, which was laid out in the pur
chase of five hundred thousand acres of
land. To this company Nicholson trans
ferred his claims, and they perfected
the purchase by paying the legal price
for them. In addition, they purchased
five hundred more warrents fcr lands
in the donation district.
The terms of their purchase were of
course those provided in the law—the
payment of seven pounds ten shillings
per hundred acres, and the making, or
causing to be made, of a legal settle
ment on each tract covered by a war
rent. In order to induce emigrants to
settle on their lands, the company pro
posed to grant, in fee simple, to every
settler, one hundred and fifty acres of
land, if he should comply with the re
quisitions of the law imposed upon
them; and in that way it was designed
that the occupant should secure his
I land, together with his improvements,
and the company should secure two
hundred and fifty acres through him.
But the fact that each actual settler
could secure for himself, by the pay
ment of the stifnlated purchase money,
a tract of four hundred acres, under the
law, prevented in a great measure the
success of the company's scheme of
Settlers generally, indeed, located
themselves on lands covered by their
own warrents, though, in some cases,
these infringed npon the lands of the
company. In consequence, suits of
ejectment were instituted against those
who had encroached upon the lands to
which the company had an incomplete
title, and this state of things became a
fruitful source of litigation for many
A far more fruitful source of litiga
tion, however, arose from the conflict
ing constructions placed upon the ninth
section of the act of 1792, in the long
litigation that grew out of tho "Hol
land Case." The Holland Land Com
pap consisted of William Willink and
eleven associates capitalists of Holland,
who had lent a large sum of money to
the United States during the Revolu
tion, Prefering to keep their money
invested iu the Uniteu States they
purchased large tracts of land in New
York and Pennsylvania. After the
passage of the law of 1793, they com
menced to bny warrents, and to locate
settlers west of the Allegheny river, on
similar terms to those of the Popula
tion Company, conceding, however,
only one hundred acres to each settkr
on their lands.
In the course of their operations they
paid the purchase money for one thous
and one hundred nnd sixty-two war
rents, and surveyed one thousand and
forty-eight more tracts for location
But in consequence of the Indian war,
the settlers that had located on the
lands were prevented from making the
improvements required by law within
the prescribed two years after the date
of their warrants. In consequence, a
question arose whether the company
had failed to complete their titles to
lands. One the other hand it was
claimed, that the conditions of settle
ment were rendered impossible by the
enemies of the United States, and,
therefore, it was not necessary to do
anything more in order to perfect the
titles to all lands on which-warrants
were actually laid. On the other it
was insisted, that the right to ihose
lands was forfeited by the neglect .of
the company to persist in their en
deavors to maintain their settlements.
The board of property before 1800, in
clined to the former of these construc
tions of the law, and devised a preven
tion certificate which the warrent-hold
er might present at the land office, set
ting forth that he had been prevented
by the enemies of the United States
from makiug the settlement of his lands
prescribed in the law, npon which he
was entitled to his patent : and the Hol
land company received many patents
for their lands under these prevention
certificates. The new Board of Proper
ty in 1800, placed a different construc
tion upon the law, and refused the is
sue of any more patents on prevention
certificates. The Holland company,
thus refused patents on these certifi
cates, applied to the Supreme Court of
the State for a mandamus, to compel
the Board of Property to complete their
titles. The cause was heard at the
March term of 1800. The Chief Jus
tice held, that the war discharged the
company from the condition of settle
ment, and, therefore, their patents were
due them. Two other Judges held that
under the law the settler was bound to
continuously persevere in his efforts to
make a settlement, aud, as the Holland
Company, through their settlers had
not done so. their titles were forfeited;
The decision of the Supreme Court
made under these circumstances, in
stead of calming, greatly increased the
excitement in the country, and indeed
throughout the State powerful interests
were arrayed on each side of the ques
tion. On the one part, the land compa
nies, the settlers who had been employ
ed to occupy their lands, and a large
body of emigrants who had parsed into
the disputed region and made locations
for themselves during the war, v.-ere
claiming that the state of the country
had—within the meaning of the law.
prevented the completion ot their sever
al settlements, and were seeking every
legal means to enforce and defeud their
claims to their land. On the other, a
large body of emigrants wero passing
into the country, especially since the
decision of the Supreme Court, occupy
ing the disputed lands, and applying for
new warrents for them, on the ground
that all former titles were annnled b\
the default of their holders.
To prevent the confusiou thus about
to arise, the Legislature, by an act of
the 2d of April, 1802, provided for the
hearing of an agreed case, befote the
Supreme Court, involving, as it was
supposed, all the facts in controversy.
The court met at Snnbury, iu 1702, and
decided that though tho prevention of
the enemies of the United States sus
pended, it did not dispense with the
conditions of settlement, and therefore
each settler, to perfect his title, was
bound to rene«v his endeavors to main
tain a settlement on his land as soon as
the danger was removed. If so, his
warrant was good: if not, it was forfeit
ed. The Holland Land Company de
clined to abide by the decision of the
court, and commenced proceedings iu
the United States Circuit Court; the
judges disagreed in their constructions
of the law, and the case was removed to
the Supreme Conit of the United States
In 1905 Chief Justice Marshall decided
that, under the law of 1762, the settler
was excused by reason of the war, from
' making actual settlement before Janu
ary Ist. 17!Ki, and if he then presisted in
j making his settlement, he was entitled
to his patent, according to law Un ler
| this decision, the Holland Company, as
j well as the other companies, and indi
: vidnals who had laid warrants in the
i disputed region during the war, were
! confirmed in their titles,and thus event
i nally obtained quiet possession of thc-ir
lands. Many tracts of land, however,
claimed by individuals, remained long
in litigation, in consequence of the dif
ficulty of making proof oF what consti
tuted an actual settlement, and as to
who were the original settlers under
the law, and in accordance with the
ruling of the court>: and thus the title
to real estate was long insecnre.and the
peace and harmony of the country
was long disturbed by the ill judged
and inaccurate legislation of the State.
The effect of all this uncertainty and |
insecurity of the titles of land in North
western Pennsylvania was. of course
disastrous. Emigrants, especially those
from the better and more reliable
classes of society, who would otherwise
have been attracted to that region, were
disposed to avoid it, and to pass on
further, to the Western Reserve, or to
other portions of. the Northwestern ter
Many who had located themselves in
Northwestern Pennsylvania, wearied
with continual litigation, abandoned
their claims and removed to the west,
where the titles to real estate were
secure. Large bodies of land, too long
remained: and in some instances still
(1S50) remain, in the hands of specula
tors unoccupied, and unimproved, or
only occupied by tenants having no in
terest in the improvement of the lands
or the advancement of the country.
From these combined causes, all of
them the results of the mischievous
character of the early legislation of
Pennsylvania, the northwestern portion
of that state was long far behind the
region west of it, in population.progress
Yet there was at an early day much
enterprise manifested by the settlers of
that country, notwithstanding the em
barrassing circumstances with which
they were surrounded. By an Act of
the" Legislature of the 18th of April.
1795, commissioners were appointed to
survey five thousand acres of the reser
vation at Presque Isle, and lay off t iere
on the town of Erie; to survey one
thousand acres of reservation at the
mouth of French creek, and lay of
thereon the town of Franklin; to survey
one thousand acres of the reservation at
the mouth of the Conewango creek, and
lay off thereon the town of Warren:
and to survey five hundred acres of the
reservation at Le Boeuf.andto complete
thereon the laying off of the town of
Waterford, previously commenced by
Andrew Ellicott. In addition to these
many other villlages sprung up,
and "the population of Northwestern
Pennsylvania so far increased that the
Legislature divided it, by the Act of
the 12th of March, IsOO, into the coun
ties of Beaver Butler, Mercer, Craw

Great Destruction of Property
Twenty-thousand telegraph poles
were chopped or pulled down, last
Thursday, and twenty five thousand
miles of "telegragh wire lay along the
right-of-way of the Peun'a R. li. be
tween Pittsburg and Philadelphia, and
other points. The term of the contract
betweeu the Telegraph Co. and the
Railroad Co. for the use of the latter's
right of way, ended some moaths ago;
the R. R. Co. notified the Telegraph Co
to remove their property, the Telegraph
Co. objected: the case was fought
through the courts, and R R. Co. won.
On Thursday last Judge Ballingtou ot'
the U. S. Circuit Court of Pittsburg
signed the fiual order, aud immediately
orders were sent from the office of tue
President of the R. R. Co. to chop down
the poles and leave them and the wires
lying along the Co's right-of-way.
Each division superintendent had a
force of men ready and the work of de
struction was begun immediately.
The poles and lines of the Western
Union along the Penn'a lines will be

Now look to the southeast of the

of the constellation Lao, the Lion, and
the brightest star in the "handle" is
called Ragulus. Back of the sickle
there are three bright scars, the bright
one being Deuebola. These stars com

the twins there are several fainter stars
which form the Crab. Southeast of
Deuebola on the other side of the Lion,
is the constellation Virgo. Its chief

We are now more or less familiar

ASA 11. WATERS.
The Rev. Asa 11. Waters died sudden
ly at his home, Jnmonville, Fayette
county, Pa., on Sunday last. May 24,
1903, ?s» years.
Mr. Waters formerly lived in Butler,
coining here about l v so, ami called here
as minister of the First English Luther
an church of this place. The services
of this church were then hald in the
little brick building yet stauding on
West North street and now owned by
the Bethany Reformed church. We
believe this charge was the first one
Mr. Waters had as a minister. From
here he went to Prospect, this county,
and had charge of the Lutheian church
there. While there he was chosen
Superintendent of county schools, being
the third one elected in this county.
From here he removed to Fayette Co..
Pa., about 18fit, and beeimo connected
with the Soldiers' Orphan School at
Jnmonville, near Union town, that
county, where he li.»s died.
To all those here who remember Asa
Waters the news of his doatli came as a
t-liock. No man ever lived here who
was more rtspeclfd. And this for the
reason, that in the highest and best
meaning of the words, be was a good
man Pore in Siand deed: kind,
generous and forbearing in all things,
he was highly regarded by all who
knew him Both as minister and man
his integrity was above question. In
late years he his winters in
Florida for benefit of his health His
wife, a daughter of the late Rev. Steck
of Greensburg, Pa., died a few years
ago. Mr. Waters' mother was a Harris,
a sister of the late Hon. John R. Harris,
the founder of Harrisville, this c >unty.
This family runs through a large con
nection in this county. The Rev. James
Q Waters, who was nastor in after
years of the same English Lutheran
charch here, was a brother of Asa. The
funeral took place in Pittsburg yester
day, ami wherever his remains may lay
all who knew Rev. Asa H. Waters will
respect his memory.
John Kennedy, one of the pioneers of
Tarentnm, and President of the bank
there, died last Monday.
So many splendid cures have been
made in purely nervous affections by
l)r. A. W. r 'hase's Nerve Pills, people
are apt to lose sight of the fact tAiat
they are a magnificent blood and gener
cl tonic. They give to every organ the
power to work, to do its duty as it
should—to the blood a richness in quan
tity and quality no other medicine can.
Appetite, digestion, strength, nerve
strength —all are furnished by their
tonic power. To the system at large
they give a general feeling of vigorous,
Mrs. J. G. Milheim of 219 North Wash
ington St , Better, i'a., says:—"A relative
of mine used Dr. A. W. Chase's Nerve
Pills as a general and particularly as a
nerve tonic with great success. She was
when she got the Pills at D. 11. Wuller's
Drag Store, 113 South Maiu St., run
down, pale, lacked strength, nervous,
sleepless and lacked appetite and restful
sleep. This I think is good proof of
50c a box at dealers or Dr A. W.
Chase Medicine Co., Buffalo. N. Y. See
that portrait and signature of A W.
Chase, M. D., are on every package.
