VOL LXXV. :j HUGE CHESTNUTS WITH A HISTORY Chestnuts tl ren.arkalle size aud a '.history of uncommon interest are dis- j played iu the window of tlin Louiger ! •drug store, M.ll street. Tliey were brought houie by Dr. Sob» rs aud a party of Danville fiieuds who recently visited the chestnut farm near Paxiuo.s •owned by O. R. Sobers, a cousin ot' | Dr. Sobers and a man whose fame as a fancy shot with the shot gun is wide. Even Buffalo Bill had to yield I lurels to Mr. Sobers,who won a contest with him and with it #t,ooo. At the pres ent time Mr. Sobers has a standing j challenge offering to wager fiom $5,000 j to $25 ,000 with any marksman of his j ('lass who desire-? to meet him. The chestnuts on exhibition were | taken from trees grafted on the Sobers j farm, whore altogether about 250,0001 trees have been grafted,some on chest- | nuts and some on oaks, and it is a re markable thing that this year some of 1 the finest chestnuts were found on oak graft. The great chestnut grove cov ers 420 acres. Last year the crop brought |IO,OOO and this year Mr. Sob ers expects it to yield $15,000. While the ordinary chestnut borr contains; two or three chestnuts the ones grown •by Mr. Sobers often contain as many as seven chestnuts aud specimens ot , this kind are shown in the Ijeniger window. When the Danville men were , at the Sobers farm, which is four miles from Paxiuos, they were shown thirty - two chestnuts that weighed a pound and 8 chestnuts that side by side meas ured over 12 inches. The chestnut grove at harvesting time is free from grass and weeds as I 'the result of 500 sheep being pastured i iu it. They are driven out before the harvesting starts. About forty Italians take the chestnuts from the trees, which are young aud low. When the >orop is harvested the burrs aud leaves are cleaned up and removed and buru ed in order to do away with the dau ;ger of forest fires destroying tho,?rove. The visit to the Sobers farm ] roved •exceedingly eujoyabie to the gentle men who went from here. They iu spected the costly stable, where Mr. Sobers has thirty-nine thoroughbreds, aud the fine half-mile track that lies about 150 feet from the handsome resi dence Mr. Sobers has on his farm. The home of Mr. Sobers is in Lowisburg. Cavalry Veterans Meet. The meeting of the Sjventh Penn sylvania Cavalry in the Milton Opera House Tuesday evening was an a fair of a very happy nature.

"HJEDORD BUT TO TBUTH, TO IXBSBTT AHS LAW —WO FAVOR SWATS US AJV9 SO FKAB BHIU AW*" DANVILLE, MONTOUR COUNTY, PA., FRIDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1904 Jjff TRAIN Michael Greely,aged about 28 yearn, was instantly killed at Qiovania on the Philadelphia & Reading railroad yesterday afternoon, his head frightfully crushed, an arm torn from his body and his body all over kuock ed and bruised in a shocking manner. Philadelphia & Reading freight train No. 84 was passing the north Mill street crossing as a crowd of men and boys, Greely among them, approached the track. The party decided to ride to Grovania aud back. Greely remark ed before mounting a car that no train ever running could make him dig the gravel, but he narrowly escaped meet ing his fate a moment later in jump ing on. When the train passed the Bt»- tlon he was seen sitting on a lumber car. When the train reached Grov ania, in attempting to dismount, he missed his footing and fell uuder the cars. After several cars passed over him he was thrown from beneath the oars outside of the rails. His clothing was almost entirely stripped off of his maugled form. The men who were with him removed the lifeless body to the power house if the Dauville aud Bloomsburg trolley line. Later he was brought to this city, ar riving at the Doster undertaking es tablishment in the evening. Mr. Dost or states that the awful condition of the body shows that Greely must have been dragged some distance. Cinders had cut and scratched it and the bruis es were countless. An AMERICAN representative last night fouud Mrs. Greely at the home of tier mother, Mrs. Mary Bingham, No. 9 Sycamore street. Her overpow ering grief is pitable. Two small chil dren are left her to care for. She stat ed that for about two months she and her husband and children had lived in Bloomsburg, where he was employed at Harman & Cogger's foundry. About a week ago they returned to this city to reside at No. 76 Montour Row, which was their former home, and it was just Tuesday that their goods ar rived in Danville, so that the death of Mr. Greely comes when the home is not even in condition for the family to occupy. Mr. Greely had applied for work as a puddler at Howe & Samuels. No arrangements for the funeral had been made last night. Tiie body is iu such a bad oondition that burial will be necessary very soon, iKjssibly some time today. Dr. Sharpless of Catawissa, coroner of Columbia county viewed the body at Grovauia. The sight was a horri ble one. The brains of the man, iu tact, were by the track. Even the lungs were exposed where the arm was torn out at the shoulder. The hat of the man was in Moutour county and the body in Columbia county, so the holding of an investigation devolved upon the Columbia county authorities. Dr. Sharpless decided an inquest un necessary after he had heard the testi mony of witnesses, clearly establish ing that death was purely accidental. Men's Class Took Walk. A novel aud enjoyable feature of looal Y. M. O. A. gymnasium work was instituted yesterday when the ■ueu's class took a trolley ride and cross country walk. They started from Danville at 6:20 o'clock in the morn ing and arrived at Grovania at 6:45. They then walked back to this oity passing through Mauser aud Toby Run hollows. It goes without saying that such an outing found great favor with the members of the class aud was a very beneficial as well as pleasant form of exeroiie. The class will take a similar trip tomorrow morning,leaving at the Bame time and place. Died After Long Illness. After an illness of several years Pet er Kinn died of a complication of dis eases at his home, 3UI Church street, at 12 .20 o'clock yesterday afternoon. He was 63 years of age. He is surviv ed by his wife and the following chil dren: Kugene, Alfonso, Harry, Ed ward, Emma, Margaret, t.tly aud Edith,all of this city ; Mrs. John Will iams and Mrs. Bert Sohooley of Wyom ing and Mrs. Edward Reed of Watsou town.

E. church on Tuesday, November 8, will serve au election night oyster supper from fi to 12 p. m.in the room now used by a millinery store in the Saul Lyou build ing,. Mill street. BOAT UPSET; MANJN RIVER Tlio most exciting kind of an experi ence wus that of John Burke, one of the bridge engineers, who on Saturday morning was thrown into the river by the upsetting of his boat and burdened with the weight of his clothes, was obligcJ to swim for his life a long dis tance to a "dead man,"the nearest place on which he could find a place of refuge until fellow workmen came to his aid. Mr. Buike is the man who runs the hoisting engine at the first pier ou the Dauville side of the river. Wheu his startling accident occurred he was rowing in a boat from the second pier on the Danville side. A line of the Water Works ferry wan dipping in the water and Mr. Burke's boat struck it. The small craft overturned and Mr. Burke was thrown without warning into the lough, swollen stream Where the boat upset the water was twelve or fifteen feet deep anu when the engineer was suddenly thrown into it his position was one of extreme dau ger.for the cold water was benumbing and the man's heavy clothing bore him down. Fellow workmen called to him to swim to the nearest "dead man," a crib of Htone held in place by guy lines, and retaining his presence of mind he strcuk out bravely and af ter a hard swim reached it. Encumer ed as he was,the feat was oue of great difficulty, for the distance he swam would have been considered long und er any circumstances. He was taken from the place in a boat as soon as possible and when he got inside of dry clothing he was soon uone the worse for his perilous and decidedly dis agreeable plunge. His escape was a very fortunate one. No Trouble in Adjustment. The adjustment of the fire loss on the cattle bam ou the State Hospital farm will be satisfactorily made and in a very short time, it is understood. Two of the insurance adjusters have been heie already tnis week and have gone over the ground. Only one man is yet to come in the iuterest of a com pany holding insurance on the burned structure. The loss was so complete that the matter of adjustment is very simple and the adjuster yet to be heard from will probably act in the same manner as did the two who were here. In the meantime the clearing up work goes on and much is being ac complished each day in removing the ruins. Tho main energies now are be ing directed towards the erection of a temporary shed for the cows. A large wooden structure is being put up. As the cold weather is approaching it Itas to be made fairly substantial in order to afford the cattle the proper protec tion. The trustees of the State Hospital today will hold an adjourned meeting. At their last regular meeting, when o ffioers were elected,some atfairs were not acted upon and they will be given consideration today. Chief Gives a Warning. The tendency to disorderly action on the part of boys and girls on Hallow E'en has beeu growiug so strong of recent years that in Danville this year very severe punishment will follow the arrest of any engaged in creating mischief or disturbance. Next Mon day night is Hallow E'en and already some have begun to celebrate Chief Mincemoyer last night issued his edict, which will be euforoed to the letter. He states that any person caught moving wagon?, porches aud the like or throwing flour or soot or in faot doing any other thing that savors of meanness will be promptly placed under arrest. This warning is given by the Chief now iu order that it may reach all who are planning a boister ous celebration audit will be advis able for every one to heed this uotioe. Pig-Skin Chasers Will battle. Another Dauville aud, Sonbury foot ball game is scheduled, this one to oc cur Saturday afternoon at DeWitt's Park. The admiasiou will be only ten cents aud a good attendance is expect ed. At Suubury last Satruday the Dan ville team was defeated by a score of 15 to 0. This week the locals will try to retrieve themselves. Consequently a hard fought coutest may be looked for. Steam Digger a Big Success. The steam digger brought from Sou bury by Caldwell, Barry & Leonard yesterday was placed in operation aud worked very well in taking a flat load ed with stone, conorete and other sup plies out to the bridge piers. The placing of the coping on the third pier was begun yesterday, when the work of putting the remaining nine courses of stoue on the fourth pier also was started. Christmas Presents Free.

Packages will ! be forwarded from Manila to points in I the islands without charge, BO far as j thev may be shipped by the int <r-is laud transport system. | Stop burning dead leaves. It is a uu isaoce. ONE ALTER BOAT, OTHER AFTER SON Two runaway boys and a stolen boat, the pursuit ot the uoys by the owue of tfie*boat and by a man looking for his missing son and the chance meet ing in this city o! the two men, who lesumed the sfsroh together, form the oasis of a strange story of considerable interest. John A. Peifer, of Mift'linville, ar rived iir tliie city yesterday afternoon ou the 12:10 Pennsylvania train in search of two hoys and a stolen boat. Mr. Peifer is employed in Berwick and uses his boat for crossing the riv er at that point. Tuesday night be tween six and nine o'clock the boat 1 was stolen and early yesterday morn ing the owner started dowu the river afoot in Bearch of the boat, lie found no trace of it, and upon reaching Cat awissa took the train for this city. Upon his arrival here he was inform ed that a boat answering the descrip tion of the Peifer boat had passed through here at elevou o'clock occupi ed by two boys. Chief of Police Mincemoyer tele phoned to Suubury and Northumber land, giving notice to the police of those towns to watch for the hoys and hold them until the owner of the boat arrived. It was at this point that John N. Sitler, of Berwick, appeared upon the scene in search of his boy, Oliver Sitler, who had run away from home on Tuesday night in company with a lad named Pierson Burke. The hoys are aged respectively thirteen and fif teen years. Mr. Peifer and Mr. Sitler were strangers to each other, but it was ap parent that they wore in search of the same boys, so they started out togeth er, taking the afternoon train for Sun bury, hoping to fiud the objects of their search either there or at North umberland. The boat that was stolen was a vain ablo one of the general s:ylo of the lauuehes running between this city and South Danville. The Burke boy had a boat of his own, which he disposed of at Bloomsburg. A report received by the AMERICAN late l«st night stated that the two boys were captured at Northum berlaud and will be taken to their homes today. It seems that the boys left home at 5:30 o'clock Tuesday even ing in the boat that young Burke had aud went to Bloombsurg, were they are said to have gotten rid of Burke's boat. Yesterday they came to Danville and from here went to Northumberland, where thoy were takeu into custody. About a dollar's worth of supplies were in the boat. The only reason given for the running away of the boys is that Burke object ed to attending school. Constables Taken to Task. Joseph Kalbfus, secretary of tho State Game Commission, severely crit icizes the constables of Pennsylvania, especially those in this soction, for their inactivity iu arresting violators of the game laws. Ho says : '• While we are only a part of the machinery depended upon by the state to proteot and preserve theae birds for our individual benefit and the benefit of those who iu coming years may fol low us, it is au indisputable fact that the great majority of this work de volves upon us, numbering less than one hundred officers authorized by daw, ten regular protectors an laem u one deputy game protector from each county of the commonwealth, while fully ninety-five out of every one hun dred of the constables of the state, numbering more than three thousand, absolutely neglect or refuse to do their sworn duty, although they by law are made game wardens in their respective counties and have equal authority with the officers of this commission in the matter of enforcement of tho game laws of the otate. "There is hardly a day passes with out the receipt of some appeal for help from some part of the state. The great majority of these letters cite the fact that the constable will do nothing and asking that tho Game Commission send at once an offioer to their help. Especially is this tho case from those parts of the state whore large numbers of foreigners arc lodged, and I want to say right here that were it not for this element there would be but com paratively few complaints." Qlorious October. What could he more glorious than ! the past few days? Out of the gloom j aud storm of last week nature came forth triumphant and in her most mar velous guise. The hazy atmosphere, j which turns the distant hills to an amethystine hue, does not prevent tho j golden orb ot day from giving his m vigorating warmth, aud bringing out the maguiScent colors of the Autumn al robings of the nearby forests. The woods have taken on their multicolor- 1 ed apparel, a symphony of red and brown, scarlet aud gold. The recent storms did not strip the foliago as cruelly as might have been expected aud nature is still in full panoply. Make tho most of such days as these and enjoy the transcendent beauty of our prime October days. There is a ( whisper afar. We shall have a change j soon.and the chill wiuds from Canada will bring along the snow squall, the clouded sky, and make hire the trees so magnificent in their farewell to Summer. j The Burgess of Shauiokin has | a proclamation cautioning persons against t-cattering corn, grain, flour, i etc , on the streets ou Hallowe'en.

Presi dent Davis occupied the chair and the following members were present: Messrs. Vastine, Reifsuydor, Swank, Montgomery, Fenstermaohrr, Boyer, Deitricli and Lloyd. A coiumunicatin from the First Na tional Bank was read calling Council's attention to the fact that owing to the condition of the gutter,resulting from paving operations,the bank c -liar was flooded during the rain. The con:- munication was filed, 011 motion of Mr. Reit'suyder, with the understand ing that the trolley people and paving contractor try as soou as po-siblo to have the guter in proper condition. A petitiou of Third Ward citizens was presented asking a personal in spection by Conncil of the trolley line at Bloom and Mill streets, the peti tioners objecting to the curve being ou the east side of Mill street instead of in the middle. Attorney West was giveu the floor and spoke on the ques tion in the interests of the petitioners. Mr. Vastine stated that the Streets and Bridges Committee had already inspected the place and considering everything had decided that the track as being placed is in the proper posi tion. A motion of Mr. Vastine pre vailed that the communication be placed on file and a motion of Mr. Reifsnyder to have it referred to the Streets and Bridges Committee was al so carried. Dr. Paules spoke in op position to the placing of the curve at any place except the middle of Uie street. A communication from the Rumsey Electrical Company asking for $1,600 to apply on tlio light plant work and material was read. The sentiment of Council was that no money should be paid uutil the machiuery airives and there is some indication of the com pletion of the plant. A motion of Mr. Vastine prevailed to impose a tax of ono mill in excoss of other taxes to cover the bond in debtedness. Mr. Fenstermacher reported good progress on tlio Water Works wall and Attorney West made a request for as many Couucilmen as cau do so to meet with the Montour and Northumber land County Commissioners at 10:30 a. m Monday, when the question of buildiug a wall ou the county lot will be considered.

Mr. Fenstermacher moved that the question of providing for light uutil the municipal plant is completed be placed in the hands of the Light Com mittee. The motion carried. The following bills were ordered paid. WATER DEPARTMENT. Regular Employes $187.00 Labor oil Streets 14.13 Atlantic Refining Co 17.60 P. & R. Railway Co 25.10 J. H.

FOR PRESIDENT! , OLD TIMERS WON OPENING GAME Bofore lit] audience of (nor hundred people Friday eve the Danville Old Timers Basket Ball team defeated the Friendship Fire Company team of Bloomsburg by the score of tweuty five to eight. This was the first game of the season for both teams, the fact being evident from the oharacter of the playing. Numerous chances for goals failed to net any gain, and the passing was ragged at times. This is to be expected, however, in the early part of the seasou when the players have had so short a time for practice. The Danville boys had the game go ing their way from the start, although the Bloomsburg team did not cease their stubborn resistance until final time was called. In the first half Dan ville netted seven goals, five from the field and two on fouls. Bloombsurg in this half succeeded in getting but one basket. The second half was near ly a repetition of the first. At the end of the game Bloomsburg for a few minuteß took a big brace and threw three goals in quick succession. The playing of the Danville team showed clearly that the fine basket ball material that ut one time made the game so popular in this city is still here. The team, however, needs practice in passing and throwiug. When this is gained the aggregation will rival the famous independent team of 1898. The line up. Old Timers Position. Friendship.

In some parts of tho city the throw ing of ashes in the streets is giving the thoroughfares a <<ad appearance. 1 The practice Is one that should not be > permitted. NO. 50 THE VETERANS READY TO GO The local Spanish-American War veterans have completed their arrange ments lo attend the reunion at Miltou on Satunlay and will go in sufficient number to make a creditable showing. It is expected that at least thirty or forty Danville men will go. The num ber. may, however,exoeed that. Some are going by train, but a large party will leave the armory in a shoo fly, starting about 10 o'clock in the morn ing. The Danville delegation has good hopes of getting the 1905 reunion, which will be the third annual, to come here as this city oan offer a strong claim for the gathering and as sure the veterans of au enjoyable time. It is possible that the rotation system may figure in the choice of the next meetiug place. For example the re union went from W'illiamsport to Mil ton,the nearest point to Williamsport, except Look Haven, which did not have much of a delegation at the first reunion. Now it is possible that Lewis burg, the nearest point to Milton,will be after the next reunion, but if the Danville delegation out numbers that of Lewisburg there is a good chance of this city winning out. The local poople will extend to the Spanish-Am erican war veterans of.the Twelfth a hearty welcome if they decide to meet in Danville next year. Sunbury Defeats Danville. In the Sunbury-Danvillo foot ball game, which was called'at 3:15 p. is. Saturday, at Sunbury the Sunbury team won by a score of 15 to 0.
