In speakine of the matter of a'rhi tration with the United States, the London Hove has the following to say,: Lord Salisbury has treated the United States with a kindness they do not deserve, always wearing :the ' silk glove, until America has forgotten4 .the existence of the iron hand betieath if. The idea of our being afraid of a fourth-rate power like the United States could only have occurred to sufferers from a severe attack of swelled head. America has lost all sense of proportion and has forgotten she plays only a minor role in the af fairs of the world. We hope our re lations with America will hereafter be distinguished by a firmer tone, as the only way to avert trouble is to make her plainly understand that we are de termined not to be shouted out of our rights."

Tha Verdict in the Lattimer Eiot. After several meetings the Coron ers Jury, appointed to look into the Hazleton shooting affair for the purpose of ascertaining whether or not Sheriff Martin and his deputies had just cause to fire on the strikers, met again on Monday and rendered the following verdict : " That we, the jury empanelled to inquire into the cause and manner of death of the Lattimer victims, do say that from the circumstances of the case and the evidence offered, the said Clemens Plutack and others came to their death by gunshot wounds on September 10th, 1897, at the hands of James Martin and his deputies, and in this we do all agree. And we, Philip J. Boyle, Barton Freas, Thomas L. Thomas and Peter McKiernan, of this jury, do further say that Clemens Plutack, with otheis, was marching peaceably and unarmed on the public highway ; that they were intercepted by said Sheriff and his deputies, and mercilessly shot to death and we further find that the killing was unnecessary and could have been avoided without serious injury to either person or property ; and we find finally that the killing was wanton and unjustifiable ; buc in this we, George Maue and F. J. Mc Neal, of this jury, do not concur ; and we, the jury do further say that there was such strong suspicion of un lawful viJence at the hands of person or persons unknown to this jury as to make this inquest necessary. Signed George Maue, Peter Mc Kiernan, Thomas L. Thomas. Philip J. Boyle, Barton Freas, F. J. McNeal Important To Tax Uollectors, ' According to the act of assembly, approved July 9, 1897, all tax collec tors are required to make monthly returns to the proper officers entitled to receive' the taxes, and to pay over at the close of each month all taxes collected during the month. In de fault, the tax collector is liable to be arrested ior a misdemeanor. If Professor Andree should ever return to civilization he can set his own price for lectures and it will be promptly paid.

The Grand Jury returned a true bill against Stephen Mensinger, charged with murdering his father. S. D. Neyhard was brought before the Court. He plead guilty to three charges of forgery. He said he was truly penitent and asked for the mercy of the Court, as he had a wife and two children who were dependent on him for support, and that he had no property in his own name. The Court stated that George Beagle the prosecutor had called on him Tuesday night and asked that he be as lenient as possible with Ney hard on account of his family. The Judge further said that Dr. House, who perhaps had lost the heaviest through the forgery, had also request ed him to be lenient as possible in the matter.

We announce to the public that our stock for the coming season is now complete in every department We are now showing a large and new line of Woolens purchased before the new Tariff Bill went into effect, which means a saving of 15 to ao per cent, to the buyer. We are now offering Fall Suits at the old piices. Our line of Over Coatings, Suitings and Trouserings are more numerous than ever.

But the- Court feels it our duty to enforce th laws which are for the purpose of preventing or checking crime j it is a painful duty, knowing you as a neighbor,' a friend and an active business man, however, it seems to us that you have no earthly excuse for your crime. The most merciful sentence of the court that we can impose is that you Solomon D. Neyhard pay the costs of prosecution and a fine of $100 to the commonwealth in No. 13 and under go imprisonment at labor in the Eastern Penitentiary for the period of one year and one month. And that a like sentence be imposed upon you in Nos. 14 and 15, making in all the costs of prosecution in the three in dictments, a fine of $300 and impri sonment at labor for three years and three months in the Eastern Peniten tiary and that the Sheriff conduct you there within ten days, and be also allowed one assistant. The court then asked the District Attorney if he had any other cases ready when he stated that the case vs. B. J. Doyle and Patrick Gallespie for violating the election laws, was to have been heard at this time, which had been continued from Tuesday on account of the illness of G. M. Quick, a witness for the defense. John G. Freeze arose and said he desired to call the attending physician to state the condition of Mr. Quick. Dr. J. C. Rutter was called and stated that the condition of Mr. Quick was worse if anything than the day before, and not fit to leave his room. And in answer to a question by At torney Wilhelm for the prosecution, the doctor said there would be no difficulty whatever as to the taking the testimony of Mr. Quick in his room by a stenographer. Mr. Wilhelm then addressed the court, and urged that the case be tried, that if it was necessary Quick's testimony could be taken in his room. He said he had witnesses to prove that the election returns had been altered right here in the Court House. During his remarks he became very heated and said that Barney Doyle was worse than Molhe Maguires who shot people. Fred Ikeler, for the defense asked for a continuance of the case on legal grounds, as the illness of the principal witness made it impossible to try the case. After C. G. Barkley and Col. Freeze had spoken, the former against a continuance and the latter for it, the Judge stated that it would be new practice for him to have testimony in criminal cases taken outside of the Court room, and that under the law and the facts in the case, he felt obliged to grant the continuance and it was so ordered. The defendants Barney Doyle and Patrick Gallespie were then called be fore the Court and renewed their bail in the sum of $500 each. W. H. Rhawn and E. J. Flynn, Esqrs., also to go on the bond. The case of Catawissa Fibre Co., Ltd., vs. the L. & W. Coal Co.. tres pass, was argued for a change of venue by Khawn and Herring for plaintiffs, and Wolverton and Waller for the defendants. The Court took the papers. The case of Stephen Mensinger, chrrged with the murder of his father Daniel Mensinger, at Beaver Valley last March was then called for trial. There were no startling devel- opements thus far, the time being nearly all taken up in the selection of a jury and District Attorney Har man's address, in which he outlined the case. The Commonwealth called a few witnesses who testified that the father and son had had frequent quarrels, that the son had left home on the night of the murder, and was found hiding in a cave some distance away, a few days afterward. The evi dence in the case is all circumstantial W. H. Rhawn, B. F. Zarr and W. A Evert are counsel for the defense, and District Attorney Harman is being assisted in the prosecution by Col. J. u. freeze. Deaths- Belles Died in Orange Twp. on Sept. 20, Jessie Alma Belles, age 9 months and 8 days. . Fisher Died in Orangeville on Sept. ao, Mrs. Louisa B.

The governor also set the day for the hanging of two Allegheny county murderers, George Douglas,, who will be executed on November 30 and Pnilip Hall, who must die on the day after that fixed for Shultz's execution. and Lowest Prices.

Last spring a number of farmers of Penns valley, Centre county, banded together and drove their young cattle to the mountains south of the valley for the summer, the cattle to be tend ed and salted by a man engaged for the purpose. Little attention was paid by the farmer? to their stock un til lately, and then it was discovered that out of sixty head taken out all were dead but twenty-two. The woods is. strewn with the carcasses of the dead beasts. Some of them have the appearance of having been killed by a mysterious wild beast, while others bear no marks at all. The cattle yet remaining alive have been brought home, looking gaunt as spectors and an investigation is being made to ascertain, if possible the cause of the wholesale slaughter of the stock. It is more than likely that state aid may be called for. We Manufacture FROM DISTILLED A FILTERED WATER. Id our storage rooms we hold good for mauy uioniun Apples, lvura.
