The sum total of $0,388.00 is the amount disallow d by the auditors and by their direction charged to messes. John Wolf Jacob Cutshall and David Baker. By an act of the legislature the report of the auditors when filed with the prothonotary becomes a Hen against the property of the directors. This having been done the Only course left Ali pm is to furnish a Bond in double the amount and take an Appeal from the decision of the Board of auditors within sixty Days. This we have no doubt they will do and then the whole matter will come before court for Legal investigation. The above is but a Brief summary of what the report contains but will give Lac Public some idea of the conclusion readied by the auditors. A startling decision. A startling principle of Law Lias just been enunciated by the supreme court of Pennsylvania in the ease of Lazear is. L Orter. It was a stated Case to test the question of the right of the wife of a bankrupt to her Dower interest in the real estate of her husband when Tho same has been sold by the Assignee. It was held by the court below that a Sale of real estate by an Assignee divested the Dower interest of the wife and this judgment is reversed by the higher court. This decision of the supreme court is the most startling and in its effects that that body has rendered for Many a year. Sine the bankrupt Law has been in operation there has been millions of dollars Worth of real estate disposed of under it. It has All been sold under the supposition that the wives of the bankrupt had no claim on it. But according to this decision every living wife of a bankrupt Whoso estate was Ali us sold can claim and recover her third of the property from its present owner. In other words the title to the property thus innocently bought by creditors or outside parties is vitiated in their hands to the extent of one thir and the Case May often be worse than that. For the property in cases has depreciated greatly in the hands of the present owners who nevertheless May be required to Back the value of the third As it was at the time of the Purchase. The amount of suffering that this will cause will make people regret that if this be the Law it was not. Discovered earlier so that while doing Justice to bankrupt wives it should not operate to do equal if not greater injustice to people who never went into bankruptcy. An exciting election. Pout a Kreib n. Y., March 4. Prob Ubl y one of the most exciting town elections Ever held in Orange county took place to Day the principal strife being Over the excise ticket. The Temperance workers led by Fecile Hobl Sou for the last week caused much anxiety among the Saloon keepers. The latter held a ratification meeting last evening a number of speeches were made and a brass band enlivened the proceed in us. It was agreed that the saloons would be thrown open to nil who voted for their candidate or. By ii. Loll Ner. The of the n. C. Temperance Union took up the Challenge and were led by Loli Lipsou. Their rooms were filled with tables which were covered with Tea cof fee milk etc., which were Given out to All who would support the cause. The result was a Complete Victory for the Temperance people who elected their candidate or. Edgar a. Wells by 21 majority and nearly 1 10 persons signed the Murphy pledge. The sleeping car swindle. A very general feeling possesses the Public mind that the present charges for Tho use of the sleeping car is a swindle. There has been an almost Universal Coin plaint on the subject and the question now promises to get into the Legislatures of Sariotis states. Already Tho attorney general of Illinois has Given it As his opinion that it is quite within the Power of a state legislature to regulate sleeping car companies just As Railroad companies and a Bill is now before the Illin ois legislature to reduce the sleeping Ca r rates to reasonable figures. There is also a Bill before the Missouri Legisla Ture which puts the Price of a sleeping Ca r berth for a single night at the Sensi ble sum of $1, or rather which prohibits the charge of More than $1 for such a berth. Unquestionably the movement will rapidly extend toothed states and it would be the part of Wisdom in the Pullman company to calmly accept the inevitable and come Down to fair prices nil Long its line. There is no doubt about it the present scale of charges must go. Largo fire at let la. About noon tuesday a lire broke out in a Large laundry build in g at let la. As Linden Hall Seminary is adjacent fears of its destruction were entertained but the firemen did such Good work that the threatened disaster was averted. It was not however possible to do More than confine the flames to the building in which they had originated und the laundry was completely destroyed. An uncommon Man. Jonathan a. Lane had to his credit in the state Treasury of Massachusetts $201,30 As salary As a member of the governor s Council. As he had Given but Twenty Days to Tho service he refuses to to take More than $100, and is Frank enough to say what a great Many others in office might say but Don to that he had " rendered the Pullo no appreciative Jonathan is a Bright and shining example who should be imitated. news items.
