RARE COLLECTION OF INDIAN RELICS One of the fluesl Bud most interest ing oolleotlous of archaeological apeo imeus ever plaoed on ezhibitiou in Danville will be an attraction iu the window of M. H. Sohram's atore dur ing the Fourth of Jaiy. With the exoeptioa of two Alaakau * allows, which belong to Dr. Harpel, the oolleotion ia the property of 001 townsman, Charles M. Johuaon and take* in the whole range of iodiau implements The amaller pieoea in the window anoli as arrow heada, apeara, drill* and the like are over 1000 iu number and are all olaaiifled and card ad giving the oolleotion a good prac tical value to tlioae who might wiah to lake op the study of prehiatoric an tiqaitlea. Iu the oolleotion aifl to be foand every thing inoladed in the list of Indian relioa, all wilh few except-' iona gathered iu tliia immediate vioiu ity. Mr. Jolinaou la something more than a mere oolleotor of arrowheads aud other ludian relioa. H$ ia an aroli aaologiat and ho has made the aubject of Indian implements and like relics a deep study. To him there ia a pecul iar fascination iu treading over these hills and valleya and picking np aud classifying the orude devioea fashion ed by the mysterious raoe that oaine and weut long before he was born. Mr. Johnson lived for three years in the West where he had au opportunity of atndying the habits of the ludiau and the knowledge thus gained prob ably has assisted him somewhat in determiuiug the uses of some of the peooliar implements uuearthad. The speoimeus in Mr. Sohraui's win dow, extensive as is the display, com prises ouly a part of Mr. Johnson's collection, the most of whlali ho has fouud himself. With him It haa been a labor of love aud he haa beeu gather Ing the speoiinena ever siuce lie was a boy. Nothing oan be more interesting than his explanations. Polntiug to a oard of rude irregularly shaped stones whioh Is labelled "Humpbacks," Mr. Johnson allowed how their very irreg ularity is a part o( the design, to tit the olenohed flat, and to be need in skinning animals. These stones along with many others the untiaiued eye wonld have passed unnoticed In this way Mr. Johuson poiuted out the uae of tha spears, skiuuiug knives, cut ting implements, gouges, drilla, axes, tomahawks and even hoes and shovels, Mauy of the ■peoimsaa lay alalia to beanty notwithstanding the simple art expended upon them. Among the most perfeot are the arrow heads, drills, a lot of oereinonial stones aud mortar and pestle, but there is nothing iu the whole oolleotion, however, that leaves one iu doubt as to ita ludian origin, not the least interesting are the speci mens of Indian pottery uuearthed, which is of two kinds, soapatoue aud olay. Among tlie collection are a lot of atrooiona implements belonging to the ludiana of the preaeut, which refleot their oruel aud barbaroua uature ax nothing elae cau do. Iu addition to the Alaakan arrows a.e war clubs oaed by the ludiaua of oar West, skull oraoketa. how and arrows, primitive flah hooka and oddly designed pi pea for amok lug. Shamokln-sunbury Line. W.

MB MEN IK HOI UWPUJOIJ HMD Daring Attempt at Robbery on Monday Night—David Barrett Held for Court in S2OOO Bail —Edward Haldeman Held in SIOO0 —Hearing Last Night. Just before midnight Mouday Eaat Market alroet in the Second Ward was the acene of a good bit of eioiteineut, in which Are arms played a prominent part,that waa not apart of the Fourth of July program. A boat half paat 11 o'olock aa W. H. N. Walker was iu the aot of cloning Ilia hotel for the uiglit the bar room waa entered by three maskod men,who prooeeded to hold np the inmates for the purpoae of robbery. Arthnr Walker waa standing behind tiie bar, while hia father, W. H. N. Walker, the proprietor, waa in the room adjoining, at the rear. One of tiie uieu sprang behind the bar and leveling a revolver iu tiie face of Artiinr Walker, commauded him not to otter a word aud at the same time giving a slurp command to his confed erates : "I'll attend to him, look after the real." At the same instant, however, Arthur mustered all hia strength aud with a quick movemeut tlung the fel low aside and sprang over the bar. The masked man quiokly recovering him self aimed and tired at Arthur as he took the jump, the bullet misaing his head by a narrow margin aud striking the transom above the door. By that time W. H. N. Walker real izing the situation sprang into the bar room. Just iuside the door he ran across the man who had fired the shot and the two uliuohed. Iu the strag gle the masked man disengaged his arm and leveling his revolver at Mr Walker's head fired . The ball struok the top of his head and ploughed along over the top of the skull, producing a long scalp wouud, from which the blood atreamed down over hia lioad. After the allot the robber continued the assault by pounding the laudlord over tiie liaad with the revolver or aomeother weapon. Uuriug the strug gle Mr. Walker suooeeded in tearing the maßk from the robber's face and had a good ohuuoe to view his feat ures. Samuel Haas, Harry Watte and Alon zo Motteru were abont the hotel and quickly marshaled themselves on the side of the defense. The robbers find ing themselves defeated iu the first onslaught and overooine by uumbers quickly withdrow. Two telephone meaaagea wore quick ly sent out, one for the polioe and the other (or Dr. E. A. Curry. The news o( the affair reached Oflioer Voris first aud he hurried iu the direction ot Walker's hotel, first stopping to in quire by telephone for some descrip tion of the robbers. He was informed that the man who did the shooting was David Barrett, who was rocently patdoued from the Eastern Peniten tiary for a hold up ou tiie Bloom road. The Offlcer proceeded up East Market street and between Railroad and Nas sau streets met Barrett corniug down. He quiokly took hold of him und turn ing him around told him he was want ed up the street. Barrett's reply was a question: "What am I wauted for?" "You know what you arc wanted for,"was the Oflloer's auswer. "Well, you have got the wrong man this time, "Barrett remarked. Ur. Voris made a hasty examina tion to assure himself that the fellow had uo pistol iu his pocket, but wlieu uear Calvin Ritter'a atore Barrett was notioed to make an adroit movemeut of his arm as if lie had something up his sleeve and at the same momeut the Officer uoticed a revolver which slip pad down into his baud and which by another adroit movemeut the fellow dropped Into the gutter. The revolv er at the same niomeut was pioked up by Claieuce Ephlln, who WHS follow ing after, with the exclamation : "Here's the gnn ; he threw it into the gotter. " Aa Ottioer Voris put the nippers on Barrett he made a vicious struggle. He was unable to do much with his hand* but he used his legs and snc oeeded iu landing a blow with his foot in the policeman's stomach. Barrett was taken back to Walker's hotel where at the tirst sight of him Mr. Walker exolaimed: "That's the man- that's the mau that did the shooting-don't you let him get away." Barrett denied that lie was the mau but Arthur Walker aa soon as lie laid eyes on him also declared that lie was the mau that did the ahooting. Quite a crowd waa on the spot by that time, among them being Hayes Bedea aud Jacob Winters, both of whom auoused Bariett of holding them upon East Market atreet with a revol vur. In Barrett'a pocket waa found aix loaded 3S-oallbre oartridgea. In the revolver thrown into the gutter were four loaded aliella of the aame kind and two wliioli had beeu tired otl. The two allots flred in the hotel aeemed to acoount for the empty shells and this together with the ldentiiica tion made by Mr. Walker and Ills son seemed to make the orowd wild and viudiotive and for a few minutes it looked dark for the prisoner. Offloor and prisoner had bardly WKD BUT TO TBUII, TO lODTT ACT lU.W-»0 FATOB SWATS OB A MM W WMAM —AM.

" Iu a moment there was a chorua of "Lynoli him," "ahoot him," "ilang him," while the excited people began to oloae in upon the Offloer and Bar rett iu an ominous manuer. But for OtlicerVoris' sternness and determina tion there ia no telling what would happened to Barrett. "Stand back" commanded the Offi cer,"l have this man in charge aud I expect jtp land him in jail; no one aliall touch him." The orowd, however, drew closer; one individual made a apring at Bar rett Officer waa obliged to uae Ilia flat to uphold the majesty of the law. " . A abort diatanoe farther on 'hey met Ohlef-of-Polioe Mlnoemoyer, who was on ilia way op, and who lelieved Jac ob Wintora, who up to this point had .assisted Officer Voris. Ou the way to the jail Barrett made a number of threats, reminding the Offioers that he would "get" tliem both. At 2 o'clock Tuesday morning John Seitz aud Ed, Halderman were tak eu into cuatody on aoapiaion of being accomplices of Barrett's. David Barrett and Edward Halder man were given a hearing before Justice of the Peaoe Oglesby last even ing charged witli assault and battery with intent to rob.

BOTH INJUNCTIONS ARE DISSOLVED Judge O. R. Savidge yesterday hand ed dowu an opiuioo io the injuuction oases of J. Hudson Kase aud Peter Berger agaiast the Danville and Sun bury Street Railway Company. Iu both cases the bills are dismissed and the injunctions are dissolved. The following extract is taken from the opinion iu the Peter J. Berger case. First . The plaintiff told the de fendant togo ahead and lie* would give him uo trouble and this is found as a faot in the weight of the testi mony. It is likewise found that on tiie strength of his promise, not to make trouble, &c., the deleudant did go ahead, purchased material aud ex* pended a large sum of money. This declaration amouuted to a consent. Second. Wo conclude that .the de fendant has the right of way by virtuo of the purohaae of the franchise of the Danville and Riverside Railroad Com pany to build without oonsent, &n. We find that the said Dauville and Riverside Railway Company always paid its taxes and kept up its organi zation in good faith ; that the passen ger railway company under the law was not confined to horse looomotiou; that it might from time to time as couditious aud public uueds required substitute other and more inoderu power. From the agreement between Kase, Berger and Guliok, we must ooucludo that the Plantiff's bill waa not filed in good faith. The defendant waa charged by the State to construot a street railway to moet the needs and demands of the public. This ia the theory and the only excuse for the grautiug of the oharter It Is illegal aud unfair for a number of individ uals to combine for the purpose of preventing the State agent (rem carry ing out the purpose of Its charter, ty ing themselves up so that ueither can move hand nor foot withont the con sent of all the otliera. This ia in the nature of a oonspira'y against the corporation to prevent it from cariy ing out the purposes of Its creatiou and performing the public duties im posed upon it bv the State. VTMTC. A.

K ffiffil OH lip's Ml Twelve Hundred Marching Men in Line —The Hire men's Contest and Other Features of the Day. When the cauuou of Goodrich Post No. 23 a. A. R . at sunrise Tuesday morning boomed foith its annual sa lute to the Fourth of July it ushered iu a day that was remarkable iu mauy respects aud which will (or a loug time stand apart from all others iu the memoiy of our citizens In the first place the weather condi tionH left uothing to be desired. Friendly clouds sheltered the earth from the iuteuse heat of the July sun. There were a few drops of rain iu the morniug but later at no time dur ing the day did the sky even assume a threatening aspect. Everything turned out preoisely aR plauued and anticipated au<l the day was matked by an utter absence of casualty,disorder or hitch o? any sort It was a day when all roads literal ly led to Dauville, not only railroads aud trolley liues, but also the waeou roads,and the crowds came early. Tne first delegation to reach Danville came from Suubury arriving on the 7:11 Pennsylvania train. The bulk of the firemen came on the Rending specials, starling from Shamokin and Milton, which were booked to arrive at 9:20 and. 9:32 respectively, but which were over half an hour late. Tiie Oatawis sa special was uearly on time. Each of the visiting Are compauies was met at the station with delegations of local firemen accompanied by musio. The streets at this time with their spirited music aud companies of hand somely uniformed men moving back ward aud forward presented au inter esting sight. Already Mill street was packed from eud to end, while overy trolley oar which at iutervals of twen ty minutes came down frtfm Blooms burg dumped a cargo of human freight into the town. Long before the parade moved it was evideut that the crowd would surpass all expectations. The number of strangers iu towu was larger ttiau on any oocasion that oould be recalled. So also the parade was larger aud more attractive. There were about 1200 men in liue, fully 1,000 being firemou. It was truly an imposing apectaole especially the coun termarch on Mill street. The IIIDSIO was a glorious feature, eleven bands aud three drum aorpe be ing in the long line of march. Eaoli of the neighboring towns seemed to send the very best it had and not only were the uuiforms bright and at tracti-e, but the marohers as a rule were gentlemauly dignified iu bearing. Among the visiting firemen were the following companies : Friend ship, Rescue, Goodwill, Winona, Lib erty, of Bloomsburg; Fifth Ward,Mit touiau aud Goodwill,of Miltou ;Wash, ington, of Sunbuiv; Reacue, West End of Shamokin ; Wataoutown Fire Oou- J. W. TAYLOR CHOSEN PRINCIPAL J. W. Taylor will be principal of the High School for the ensuing year. A speoial meeting of the School Board was held last eveniug for the purpose of electing a prinoipal to fill the High Sohool, whioh was left open at the last meeting. Directors pres ent were: Adams, Orth, Harpel, Von Bloliu, Fischer, Trumbower, Orone, Heiss, and Werkheisar. On motiou of Mr. Werkheiser it was ordered that the Balary remain the same as laßt year, one hundred dollars per mouth. The Committee on Teachers aud Certificates repotted that with Bor ough Superintendent Oordy it had oarefully gone ovur the list of cants, some fifteen in number,and that it iiad deoided to report in favor of Mr. Taylor. Ou motion, therefore, Mr. Taylor's name was plaasd in [nomination as Prinoipal ot the High Saliool and he was unanimously elected. The Priucipal-eleot is from Donald son, Schuylkill county.

A staff correspondent of the Phila delphia North American was iu this oity Tuesday and gave our Fourth of July demonstration a good "write up", whioh appeared yeßterday morn ng along with some veiy good pict ures pertaining to the event. The North AinerioßU representative was W. B. Wilson formerly part own er of the Mt. Carmel Item, and later oity editor of the Mt. Caimel News. He has been in Philadelphia for some years. Buying Up Breweries. A Baltimore syndicate is buying up brewery interests iu the authractle region. It is reported that fifteon plants in Schuylkill, Northumberland Columbia aud Luzerne oountiea will probably be merged. The summer la jogging along at a lively dip. Northumberland Fire Oompauy, Lewisburg Fire Company and Reli ance, of Berwick. Our own lire de partment under Chief Porpur aud hia able corps of aasistauts coutributed im mensely to the aucoeaa or tiie parade and in line made as fine an appear auoe aa any. The Shenandoah Drnin Corps.which arrived on Monday even ing, was au importaut factor In the parade along witli our own drum corps and others. Company F, 12th Regiment, N. G. P ~ in line made a very nioe appear anoe. The veterans of Goodrich Post. No. 2'<l, G. A. R., were out in full foroe along with Blxty odd comrades belonging to the G. A. R. Posts of neighboring towns. A great deal of credit for the suc cess of the parade belongs to Chief Marshal Col. Juo. Sweisfort aud his able staff. It is very iiard indeed to estimate the number of straugers iu Danville on the Fourth, but tiiero were several thousand. To convoy some idea of the multitude it might be stated that after the parade with its 1200 march ing men left Mill street for the Second Ward and thus were out of the way altogether Mill street still over its whole longth was one dense throng from aide to aide, tiie people occupy ing the middle of the street, which waa packed as tightly aa the pavement. Tiie grand cliorua with ita 135 voices waa a magnificent aucceaa. It- was during its rendition that the best idea could he formed of the orowd. Prob ably 5000 people listened to the sing ing. The firemen's contest was the at traction at the Northern eud of town and was witnessed by thousands of peo ple. There were ouly two entries, by the Washington Hose Company of Sunbury and the Rescue of Blooma buig. The first prize waa awarded to the Washington Hose Company,which covered the diatanoe, 250 yards, made the plug aonneatiou, unreeled 100 yards o( hose and threw water in one minute and thirty and one-half seo onda. The second prize was awarded the Keacue Hoae Company of Blooms burg. The fireworks were a fine feature, •witnessed bj many thonsaud people from the river bridge and froru vant age poiuts on Bhore. All in all the day wan one of tlie i biggest tliat ever occurred iu Danville, the abundant measure of soocess, and the excellent order prevailing reflect ing credit not only upon the visitors within our gates bat also upon- the Citizeus' Celebration Committee and our townspeople in geueral by whom it was so geneioosly aided and sap ported. A PREHArURE EXPLOSION A collection of tire works were ac cidentally exploded in front of Arthur Heddens' establishment, Mill streot,? Tuesday afternoon.
