The deceased who was Al dieted with heart disease was a Nephew of Lewis Titel of this City. He was a single Man new Era which chief Minc Etnoyer will inaugurate. It is not at All reassuring to reflect no on the manner in which the Borough ordinance is violated. In a few of its provisions it amounts practically to a dead letter. Chief of police Minc Etnoyer yesterday informed us that As far As duties relate to the situation with the present he intends to inaugurate a new Era in which a better order of things will prevail in Danville. He has firmly resolved that the Borough ordinance must he enforced. In the past nuisances have been maintained and practices forbidden have been indulged in with a blushing effrontery not because there was no Effort made to combat the evils but because the lenient policy pursued was ineffectual to uproot them. Hereafter. The chief declares no clemency will be shown that whoever violates the ordinance does so at risk and May expect to pay the penalty. Among the illegal practices heretofore surreptitiously much indulged in that shall receive Especial attention the chief says Are card playing in Public drinking Beer or other intoxicating beverages in alleys or on the River Bank loafing on the Street Comers or in front of stores and the depositing of garbage on the River Bank within the limits of the Borough. The chief will also be after those merchants who neglect to remove their goods from the sidewalks at six M. This lie says is a nuisance that causes no end of complaint among pedestrians and it will have to be abated. Arrested for oar jumping. The Philadelphia amp Reading railway is continuing its War on car jumpers. No less than five were arrested yesterday by detectives simmers and Parsley and arraigned before Justice of the peace Bare. The Young Fellows who represented the neighbouring towns of Bloomsburg Shamokin and Carbondale told a very plausible Story. They were on their Way to Danville they said where they had secured employment. Being without funds it was either a question of walking or of stealing a ride. They impressed the officers Tavo Rahly and with one exception succeeded in securing their clemency and were released on the Promise of paying the Fine after earning some Money. The one that was less fortunate however was obliged to produce the wherewithal�?#5 and Cost before he was discharged. The officers state however that from now on no clemency will be shown and that every person who jumps the ears May expect to pay the penalty. Butler Dietrich.

We have had enough Balm in the air the past few Days to suggest symptoms of the Spring fever As Well As to inspire the Hope that Winter is about to vanish. This Hope is Likely to be dashed. It can to be possible that the groundhog has consented to chop off any of time nor is it Likely that Spring will actually begin so far in Advance of her opening As scheduled in the almanacs. It is still several Days until March 21, the Date of the Vernal Equinox Anil there is still time for Winter to produce some disagreeable meteorological Surprise and yet make Way for an Early Spring.
