There may be several several causes for this, but it is highly probable probable that one cause at least is the ease with which persons sentenced to pay cost* have been able to escape imprisonment. imprisonment. Too many petty cases have been hastily brought, because prosecutors be lieved that, even if they failed, they would not be obliged to go to jail. "This court is satisfied that its liberality liberality on this subject has been abused, and accordingly announce the following rule: "95, A. Hereafter no order under the Act of 1887 (P. L. 80) will be made permitting permitting tbe County Commissioners to discharge discharge from prison a person who has been sentenced only to pay costs, until such person has been imprisoned in tbe county jail for at ^east ten days. The court reserves the right to modify or disregard this rule under special circumstances. circumstances. This does not interfere with the practice practice under the insolvent act of 1836 and its supplements, bat only with the summary summary proceeding under the act of 1887. t JOBS B. McPHERsoK, A. L.
