A Hunter May drive Many Miles be me to Ding any cultivated land upon which he is permitted to enter with 1 out violating tire Law. Those of course who have personal friends among the i Farmers or can bring some influence t Bear have not difficulty in gaining permission to Hunt on lands and it is a hese Gentry who bring Home tie big bags of game. The action on the part of the agriculturists in generally a a posting their lands shows that they intend to take full advantage of the Law Auie Oded tor their Benefit. Under the Protection Alforde a by tire game Laws during several years past Quail have been increasing in numbers. This season they Are unusually plentiful.

Action brought to recover from Borough for two Days. A special term of court for the trial of Cirii spits began monday morning with judge r. Little and ass a a Mattes Thompson and Bice on the Bench. Nearly Theena inc Day Xmas occupied Vith the damage suit of William 11. J. Blizzard is. The Borough of Danville. This is the fourth action brought by the blizzards against the Borough to recover damages for detriment and injury sustained from hoofs and the polluted condition of the run which flows the Tough their premises. The damages recovered a in the preceding aggregate $750. In the present action which is brought to recover for two a lays april 2 and 3, 1897. The damage asked Are $1000. Under the Law the plaintiff May bring a suit for every Day the 0 tiie nuisance is permitted to exist. No Oue will be surprised therefore. 1 it learn that there Are still Pend ing ten suns against the Borough with or. Blizzard As plaintiff covering irregular periods Between april 3, h97 and the present. James Scarlet and ii. M. Hinckley. Monday represented t tie plaintiff while b s. Ammer Ioan and Edward s. Gearhart looked after the interest Ltd the Borough. Some half a dozen witnesses testified Lor the plaintiff. The defense offered no testimony. Or. Hinckley addressed the jury for the plaintiff and or. Gearhart for the Borough judge Little in his charge instructed the jury to bring in a verdict of the plaintiff that nothing remained for them to a to hut to fix the amount of the Dan. I. He reviewed the testimony to show that the nuisance complained of Iii the former suits existed 011 april 2 and 3. 1897, and even continues up to the present in As great if not greater degree. The judgments rend tied in the three suits brought for continuation of the nuisance he said establish the right of the plaintiff to recover in the present Case. In addition to the damages actually sustained by the plaintiff the court said the jury had the right to inflict punitive damages in an additional sum so As to induce the Borough to Abate the nuisance. The jury in the Case of William 11. J. Blizzard the charge trespass agreed upon a verdict about 5 of clock tuesday morning after being out All night. In View of the judges charge which stated that the verdict must he for the plaintiff the Only thing resting in doubt was t tie amount of damages to be awarded. There was a Good Deal of interest manifested to know just How the twelve men would look at the matter. The verdict returned he the jury awarded damages in the gum of $590. Of this $25 was for actual detriment or damage sustained during the two Days of april 2 and 3, 1s97 and the balance $�85, punitive damage inflicted 011 the Borough for neglecting to Abate the nuisance. The verdict is the heaviest that or blizzard has yet obtained against the Borough. The worst features Are the facts that nearly five years remain to pay tor and that the nuisance complained of still exists while it is 110 secret that the plaintiff intends to bring suit after suit unil the nuisance is finally abated. To fight the matter in court is obviously Only to waste so much time and Money As is shown by the judges charge in this As Well As in previous cases which clearly establishes the boroughs liability of a or damages As Long As the nuisance is permitted to exist and leaves nothing tor the jury to decide but How much the Borough shall be made to pay for its neglect. The verdict in the present Case might be taken As an indication that the Public is becoming tired of Tifis litigation and impatient of the somewhat stubborn and attitude of the Borough in refusing to Abate what has Over Ami Over been demonstrate to be a most flagrant nuisance. Citizens in general tuesday were very much stirred up by the verdict rendered. The Justice or injustice of or. Blizzards claim no longer enters into controversy it is now a cold matter of Law. It is Eitnier the abatement of the nuisance or the payment of damages indefinitely. That the Borough Council came in for its share of censure is Only natural. While it is True that the pollution of blizzards run has Given our Borough Law makers some concern yet there has always been a division As to How the nuisance might be most effectually abated with the result that one faction some How managed to defeat the plans of the other so that in the end nothing material was accomplished. At this juncture a great Deal devolves upon Council. The first thing to be done is the abatement of the nuisance in blizzards run. There is no excuse tor any division As soon As a feasible plan is proposed. That it is an improvement needed above All others to one will dispute now. Let Council act As a unit As becomes Public spirited conscientious men working for the Good of the Borough and that alone abandoning whatever pet projects May stand in the was of necessary action. Has a hoi jailed at Pottsville for a crime committed by another. M. I. Mclaughlin Ksn pm of la a Stville District attorney of Schuylkill county arrived in this City tuesday night for the purpose of looking up evidence which May result in establishing a Case of false imprisonment restoring to Liberty a Young Man of Good family who has seven years of prison life ahead of his. About 3 of clock in the morning of february 4th last a daring hold up along with one or 0101 e burglaries was committed in Pottsville. During the afternoon of that Day a loan by the name of Jno.

While awaiting Tiiu a Gillespie wrote to the chief of policy of Sunbury reminding him that on the night of sunday february 3, and 1 he morning of the 4th when the robbery for which he was accused was committed lie was in the lock up at that place. The chief of police bras one of the witnesses at the trial but he was not quite positive As to his dates so that his testimony fell Short of its object. Gillespie although a if habits that would Bear Reform it appears belongs to a very Good family of Pittston it was not until after his incarceration that his relatives Learned of his predicament. They immediately interested themselves in his behalf and Are now Back of the movement to secure his release. Gillespie claims that on the night of saturday february 2nd lie was Given shelter in the lock up at this place pro Cee ling the next Day to Sunbury where As before stated he spent the night following. A correspondence was opened with chief of police Mincemoyer when it Xmas Learned that the latter has 111 his Possession evidence which May prove potent in accomplish no the object in View. Our policemen it appears Are in the habit of keeping a record of every Hobo sheltered by the Borough and referring to the list they found that the name �?g.1-lespie�? was there As claimed in connection with the Date of february 2 chief minced foyer has no difficulty 111 recalling Gillespie a vhf lie says was about 25 years of age and something of a Hobo in appearance. He Xmas let out of the lockup bet Veen 9 and in a clock sunday morning and our officers Are pretty Well convinced that he left Here for Sunbury. The evidence obtained in relied upon to establish an Alibi by fixing the a late of the night spent in Sunbury a it that of february 3rd.
