If a basket of egpa should have a
fall like the one some badly informed
papers are Bayiuc Quay sustained at
the recent state convention, none of
the eggs would break.
Don't take any stock in the Demo
cratic yarns that there are dissensions
in the Republican ranks. The party is
united and never enjoyed brighter
prospects for victory. Whatever dif
ferences existed were wiped out by the
state convention on Wednesday. In
this county it is the same. The party
is now united, with but one object In
view the success of the whole ticket
and it is for Harrison, Blaine, 'or any
other good man that will secure the
nomination in 1802. In state politics
Quay and Mageo have shaken hands.
In this county Phillips, Losch, Koch,
Brumm, Wilhehn, Whltehouse.Jamcj,
etc., etc., have done the same, and all
are in for victory.

Tho Chief Burgess and Mr. Hopkins, to
gothor with John Wagner, a property
holder, also complalnod nbout tho bad
condition of some streets.
By this tirao Mr. Portz arrived and ha
said that tho screens needed for the stono
crusher could not bo procured in town'.
One of the reasons was that tho Tamaqua

quired. Messrs. Wurm and G-iblo followod with
criticisms of tho street committee's methods
and Mr. Gablo said ha would entertain a
motion to increaso tho membership of that

Mr. Gablo thon charged that tho strsot

Mr. Portz is tho man and is tho council,
and has beon all this timo and I, for one,
am sick and tired of it."
Mr. Porta agHin took tho floor, emphat

charged him with authorizing certain

Manager Doyle again won the toss and took
Umpire Whalen said, "Gentlemen, I
have filled tho position of umpire in all tho
principal cities from Florida to San Fran
cisco and am used to being roasted in tho
papers, but, by tho great horn spoon, I'll
nottako any back talk fro ca any of you
players. I bavo como prepared. This in
strument of death (producing a revolver)
contains twenty charges one for each of
you players, one for the scorer and one to
show you (firing towards centre field) that 1
mean business and will not be bulldozed. If
you are ready to proceed, start tho ball a
rolling." At thisjuncturo Mr. Malono (a married
man) said, "Mr, Ump're, I'll not accept
your conditions, and as I have left my
shooting iron at homo I'll retire from the
gamo. I am not used to catching bullets in
the center field.
At least one hundred married men
scrambled for Mr. Malone'e position, but
Mr. Peters, of tho Ferguson House, was
honored. Tho game started at 3:30.
1st inning Heisonbarger was presented
with first base, and wont to second bag on
a passed ball. He had his eyo on third bag
and had Scanlon held the ball thrown by
Doyle he would havo been out. Tho Um

and the side was'out, with smiling Freddie
on third baso. lleffron opened up for the

Cth and last Inning Capt. Muldoon,
with hat In hand, slipped to the plate, but
when ho faced Hughes in tho box ho
changed many colors, and after striking nt
three balls, long after tho catcher had them
safely housed, ho threw down his bat in
disgust and said, "Boys, Hughos is again
back to his old Washington form and ho
must not bo allowed in tho box, or wo aro
gono goslings." Folmer was then placed
in the box, but anotbor objection followod.
Lawlor was tho next man presented, but
still an objection. Arthur Trezise, with
ball in hand, colored tho box, but
Kelly ran out and said, "No, no I for
hoaven'e sake no I I havo monoy
bet on the game. Hofl'ron was tho poxt
man offered, and a shout wont up, "He will
do; ho's our meat." Tho umpiro said play
ball, and Kamer faced thopitchor. Hofl'ron
twisted himself like a cork-screw, and away
wont tho ball with a lightning curve and
landed on Rimer's fifth rib. Rimor falcted,
but after a good dousing recovered. Capt.
Muldoon ordored Hefl'ron from tho box,
and he loft. Doylo, tho old stand-by with
a glass arm, pitched the balance of tho
game. Ilollopeter, for tha third time, took
his base on balls. . Ho was forced out at

short stop, Brennan ended tho inning by
flying out to Lawlor.

Deputy-Tax Collector Knobol and Police
man Connors continuo to experience livoiy
times in their work of collecting taxes
from Hunsand Polos. Vostorday they had
a particularly livoiy adventure. They
called at a bouse on tho rocks at tho south
ond of West stroet to arrest two Huns who
evaded payment. Thoy suocoedod in ar
resting one, but the other, oscapod from tho
house and ran over tho rotks, down the

captured Hun was placed in tha lockup,
after which Conners and Knebol jutnpod
into a gig and drovo after the fugitive.
When ascending Turkey Bun hill thn of

Knobel conlinuod up tho road. Tho Hun

THE HINKS CASE.
Bonder's Quasi Wife Arrested at
When Chiof of Police Amour met way
ward Patisnoa Hinks in Shamokln yester
day and told her that her quasi husband,
William Bender, bad beon placed behind
tho bars in tho PottS7illo jail and that ho
had traveled to Shamokln to arrest her,
she impatiently asked, "Why do you wish
to arrest mo?"
Your parents have sworn out a warrant
for your arrest on tho ground that you aro
incorrigible," tho officer repliod.
"Well, supposo I won't go with you?"
asked tho girl as sbo throw back hor bead
and half turned from Amour.
"But there is no supposing about It. You
are my prisoner and must accompany mo
The words "You are my prisoner" havo
a magical effect in almost overy case in
which an officer of tho law is obliged to act
and Pationco's case was no oxcoption. She
evidently realized that no combination of
stubbornness, indignation, or injured inno
cence can be sufficiently strong to nope
with tho mandatos of tho law and she said,
quietly, "Woll, I'll go with you."
Upon arrival in town Amour arraigned
his prisoner boforo 'Squire William. Be
fore she was asked to mako any statement
she said that Bendor was not responsible
tor her conduct. She left town of hor free
will with another girl and sought Bender in
Shamokln. Sbo was evidently anxious to
protect Bender and when asked if it was
not ropulsivo to hor to marry the man who
had betrayod hor sister sho only answered
with a smllo and glance of unmitakablo de
fiance She was hold for a hearing at half past
six in the evening. This did not diitu-b
her and sho said that everything would to
all right in tho end.
At the appointed bourlait night Patienco
Hlnks was bofore 'c'quiro Williams to
answer tbo complaint made by her parents,
charging her with being incorrigible. The
hearing presented several sldo issues that
mado tho case quite interesting.
Patience's demeanor changed soraowhat
during her aftornoon stay in tho lockup.
She concluded to plead guilty and draw
others into tho muddle with her. After
pleading sho swore that Charles and Addle
Wykofsky, a young marriod Polish couplo
of the First ward, wero rosponsiblo for hor
conduct. That they delivered notes to her
from Bonder, arranged meetings at thoir
bouse and on tho 18th of last July and
numerous other occasions, thoy urged her
to go to Bender and marry htm. On one
occasion, Patience swore, Mrs. Wykofsky
said, "If I were you I would go to Bender.
will buy everything for you."
After hearing this testimony warrants
were sworn out by Patience's father,
charging the Wykofskys with conspiring
to induce bis daughtei to eave her homo
and accomplish her ruin. The Wyko
skys wore arrested and Uey pleaded not
guilty, but 'Squire Williams held thm
under $S00 bail, each. Tne wife furnished
the security at once, but tbe husband went
to the 1 ckup.
tVfter h consultation between tho author
ises and tho parents it was decided to send
Patience to the county jail, so that nono of
Bender's frlondB oan havo an opportunity o
spirit her away, or influence a settlement of
Just before Patience left the 'squire's of
fice a young girl appeared and charged hor
wuh stealing a dress. This case was
speedily settled by the dress being restored
to the ownor.
At about 11 o'clock last night Charles
Wykofsky succeeded in securing bail and
was about to walkout of tbo lockup a free
man when Policeman Conners and Tax
Collector Schmidt appeared at tho door and
demanded payment ot taxes. Wykofsky
expostulated, but S.'hmidt said it was
either pay or jail and tho matter was
settled by tho young fellow turning ovor
his atch for security.
Patience remained confined in tho coun
cil ch .mber all night, having hor brothor
as voluutoer company. This morning sbo
was taken to Pottsville.
Tho case seo ais pretty woll mixed, but
from the confusod mass tho parents havo
moulded tho theory that Bonder schemod
to marry Patienco in tho hopo that tho
raarriago would induco tho parents to drop
tho previous suits resulting from his rota
tions w th tho older sister, and that tho
Wykofskys conspired to aid him in tho
