A tqneeze at Jeaneavllle- Last Monday's Hazlctoni'Iam Speak er gives the following: Mlno cave-ins nowadays appear to be very numerous In this region, scycral having occurred during the past two weeks. Jcancsvlllo, which has more mlno holes than any mining town in the region, was the scene last Friday of much excitement and anxiety, owing to about three acres of the surface over No. 1 slope in the vicinity of the lower school building set tling down eight Inches causing tho women nnd children to beat a rapid retreat from their homes. In a short time household furniture was being thrown about promiscuously on tlio street,' by women who Mere " greatly alarmed lest they should bo engulfed In the bowels of the earth. It was only after much fright that their excitement was ralmed. Over the. surface the report sounded like tho low peal of dis tant thunder but In the mine It was high sounding and deafening, the con cussion forcing articles of all dcscrlpt Ions In various directions, tearing out brau ishes, doors and turning cars over. The miners who were employed when the squeeze occurred had a narrow escape from being killed. Their lights were extinguished several hundred yards from where the cave-in occurred, so great was the force of the concussion, and it was only after great difficulty that they reached a place of safety. A miner named Patrick Ilaeket was so bcsldo himself as to venture back for his tools when suddenly a fall occurred, putting nut his Unlit, and throwing him into an old "dip". Ho extricated himself after much exertion and to the. astonishment of ills associates, who cautioned him about the venturesome trip he was going on. ho returned.wlthout serious Injuries belntr Inflicted on his person. 'Hie squeeze on the. surface was tho result of the pillars and tliemnmmotit vcin.wiiicii are tipper most, giving away. Several old "dips" which are filled with water. had their contents forced out by the falls, thus flooding the mine for some time. The Coal Trade, Last Monday's Philadelphia Ledger, says: There is nothing of especial in terest in the anthracite coal trade to note this week. Adverse winds arc detaining vessels In Eastern harbors, and consequently are causing trouble to shippers of coal. New England dealers aro strenuous in their demands for cargoes of egg and stove coal, and the Heading Company is being hard pressed to deliver orders, many of which have been booked for weeks past, me com nanv cannot ship coal without vessels. and as vessels are so scarce, some of Its customers who advanced "paper" for coal for future delivery are much dis satisfied, because now, when they want coal, thev cannot get It. and hence aro loud in their complaints. The stock of the Heading Company at Port Hlch- mond has increased about 11,000 tons during the past .week, but the total stock on hand there is still less than 100,000 tons, most of it being unsalable sizes. There Is considerable coal going westward, and the demand from the South Is good, but tho inability of shippers to obtain water transportation also impedes the filling of orders prompt ly. Freights have stiffened considerably. and $1 40 is about the ruling rate to Boston. The line and city trade have lost the "snap" developed several weeks ago. and good concessions aro now being mailo to effect sales of anthracite. Even the special coals of the most favorite. brands are not as lirmly maintained in prices as they were. 1 he Lehigh Jsavl gallon Company's business is reported to be in good condition, mat company being without any accumulation of coal, nnd for what coal it has disposed of this ,'s'eason fair prices aro said to have been obtained. Teachers' Institute. The next session of the Carbon County Teachers' Institute will be held at Lc highton, Dee. 7th 11th. The following noted Lecturers and Instructors have been engaged for the week.

The recent Act of Assembly makes it compulsory for all teachers to close their schools tho cntlro week of the County Instltutc,thcrcfore a full attend ance of the teachers of the County will be oxpected at all tho sessions of the Insti tute. A very interesting and instructive programme will bo presented for the week which will be mailed to the teachers and directors a week or two before the Institute. It Is also hoped that all friends of education will give the cause their hearty support. Crystal Wadding.

Long before the curtain rose, tho hall was crowded by an anxious audi cnee. At 7:30 tho evening's entertain ment opened by the appearanco of the management, Mrs. Chas. Bower and Miss Lulu Zehner.upon tho stage.shortly after followed by Miss McDanlel, and Elmer Heed, rho rendered the "Leo March," very satisfactorily as was evi denced by the long and loud applaudlts which followed. Want of space will not permit us to separately enum erate each performance, suffice It to say that amoug the special features of the evening was the music rendered by Misses OVert, Zehner aud McDanlel.Mrs. Durling, Mrs. Snyder, Mrs. C.

Coxe, involving the ownership of some two thousand acres of valuable coal land in thu lower end of Luzerne county, valued at $1,000,000, was called for trial in Common Picas Court, at Wllkesbarre, .Monday. Clarence Deringer, counsel for the plaintiff, suggested that the death of the detendant would necessitate amending or In somo way altering the record. Franklin B. Gowcn, counsel for tho Coxes, asked Mr. Deringer whom ho represented. The latter replied: "The plaintiffs." "Then file a warrant to that effect," responded Heading's ex-picsldent. 3Ir. Dcrinzer again alluded to the death of one of tho defendants, staling that It was Impossible to try a case against a dead man. Mr. Gowen thoughtthat this made no difference, tho tenant of tho lands being present, and this was all that was necessary. The Judgo said that If Deringer wanted to substitute somu one in place of tho deceased ho would give lilm reasonable time in which to do so, but rcftiseilihls application for a special SKssIotrTor tho trial of tho cases. The trial was thereupon continued to such time as shall bo agreed upon by the (tar tics Interested. Mr. Gowen asked Deringer to filo a warrant to seo whom he represented in the case. An Important Decision. Book, sewing machine, organ and piano agents who have made a practice of selling on the Installment plan, and then removing tho article in case the purchaser failed to make the contracted payment, will have to change thel procedure. Judge FInlcttcr of Phila delphia has recently decided that tho seller, or the agent has no right fo do this on his own account. In other words he cannot take the law Into his own hands. Before lie can lay a linger on tlio goods ho must tako legal action through a writ of replevin. If ho docs not do this and attempts to remove the goods, whoso removal tlioholderresists, liu is citiltv of assault and lottery. There can bo no just objection to this decision. The essential point in It is that the Installment man cannot decide for himself what is or what Is not law, and that he cannot deprive his debtors of the benefit of It. The larger class of people who make purchases in this way are generally ignorant of their rights and are apt to be easy victims to threats and coercion. They can now bear in mind that If they happen to be behind hand In their payments, as many of them are through misfortune rather than through intention to defraud, their goods cannot be seized until their creditors have recourse to due process of law. Hungarians Arrested. On Sunday night, about 12 o'clock, John Mayer appeared before Justice Bcckhardt, of East Mauch Chunk, and swore out a warrant for the arrest of Mike Letzko and George Bladlshcr, Hungarians, charging them with assault and battery with intent to kill Paul Keffcrshmlt and others. Keffershmit is said to be in a critical condition, and his recovery is doubtful. Letzko and Baldlshcr were arrested and taken before Justice Bcckhardt for a hearing, and, in default of ball, were committed to jail to await a trial at the next court of quarter sessions.

At the Stanton mines a bore hole filled with a six Inch pipe sends up a flame six feet high. Lately this gas had made itself apparent iu large quantities in the basement of the Hancock Street Public School, and the directors have contemplated using it to fire boilers for heating the school. With in the past few weeks Charles Williams, proprietor of the Planesville Hotel, has discovered it issuing from tho ground on his premises, has collected it, and now it lichts and warms a nortion of his hoiiie.
