Movement to Plnce the Mi no, Iu upcclors I'nder State Supervision. To correct tha defects in the state mining laws a general act will be Intro riuced in the next legislature which will apply to the anthracite and bituminous regions of Pennsylvania. The measure will have the sanction of the state all thoiities and will cstubllsh a bureau of mines in the Internal affairs depart ment with a chief whose qualifications will be similar to those required of mining engineers and mine inspectors. The creation of such a bureau with a properly qualified chief Is thought to be necessary for the reason that no super vision by the state is by law author ised over the mine inspectors of either the anthracite or bituminous mines In Pennsylvania. Complaints are constantly being made to the governor and other state officials by operators, miners and others connected with mines airainst the In spectors for alleged failure to comply with the duties InipoFcri upon them by law, but the state authorities have no legal right to Investigate such com plalnts und nothing is ever done in the matter, except to refer them to the In spector who Ims been complained against. As it is now theve are to all li tints and purposes eighteen differ ent departments of mining in tills state, each mine inspector transacting the business of his district according to his own Ideas without Indue; accountable to a superior ollicer on the part of the commonwealth, and yet all Inspectors are paid directly from the state treas ury. The state authorities back of the proposed act claim there is need of ad ditional mining legislation on account of the alleged unconstitutionality of the present law and of the necessity for state supervision.

Albright, of Al Kntown, on the bench. v A female duck-theif was one of the defendants on trial. She was Annie Semeron, of Taylor. The prosecutor was James Subrick. Mr. Vldaver as listed the commonwealth and W. R. Lewis appeared for the defense. The allegation of the prosector was that Annie stole seven of his ducks. He missed that number one morning and upon making a search discovered one of them In the ixissesslon of the Semer on woman. It had a peculiar mark on It by w hich he readily recognized It a a part of bis Hock. The defense was that Subrick brought this prosecution in revenge for having been arrested several times ut the instance of Sirs. Semeron. Court directed a verdict of not guilty. Last Fourth of July there was bother down In Green's lane. The Tolands and them else bad their lighting clothes on and they didn't get them off for sever ul days.

When the bystanders picked Redding ton up, it was found that his left leg was broken in two places. TOLAND PLKADF.D Ol'ILTY. Yesterday Toland w'us called to an swer the charge of uggravuted assault and battery. His attorney, John II. Monner. agreed to enter a plea of guilty of simple assault and buttery and Dis trict Attorney Jones usqulesced. Judge Albright did not, however, make much. if any, allowance for Toland s open confession for he sentenced him to a line of $."ii, costs of prosecution und nine mouths In the county jail.

Mr. Manning Is assisting the district attorney and Sir. Welsh Is for the defense. Constable Harris, of Priceburg, had a warrant for the arrest of Krueger and Langowskl and Rush went along to point them out to the officer. The defendants submit ted to arrest peaceably enough but when they got outside they pounced on the informer and gave him a severe drubbing. Krueger hit him on the head with un umbrella. Mrs. Krueger thump ed him in the face und Langowskl kick ed him, at least he so alleges. The de fense will be a denial of the assault and an allegation that the proseimtioii Is a spite action. Slury Denlhey was charged by her husband, Dunlel Denihey, with assault und battery. The Jury said not guilty but pay the costs. The parties live In Taylor and have had a number of casta in court. KISSED AND MADE VP.
