They will bring their best material along to cope with our boys; and a good game is an ticipated. Fine Uniform*. While on a tour of investigation a few days ago our attention was called to the tailoring establishment of J. J. Powerß, on lower Centre street, by observing what appeared to be a military uniform laying on the counter. Upon going into the store we were surprised to see that the old veteran was busily engaged mak ing uniforms for the Kazi'mierz Pulawski (Polish) Beneficial Society, of South Heberton. The Society numbers twenty five members, but about eighteen suits are being made at present. The suit is made of the finest beaver cloth, and consists of coat and pants, with red trimmings and regulation buttons. They are finely made and we have no doudt will showtogood advantage. Mr. Powers received the order but a short time ago—as it was not known until two weeks ago that the society would take part in the Fourth of July celebration — but with his usual business tact and army experience he knew what was needed, , and so finished the whole of them on , time. Societies and military organizations in need of uniforms—where a neat fit, good material and first-class workmanship are the requisites—should consult slr.Powers, as, from his large experience as a military man coupled with that of a good work nian and fair prices, he will surely please them. Lecture anil Entertainment. The lecture and entertainment held under the auspices of the Young Men's T. A. B. Society, of Freeland, at Yannes' opera House, on Tuesday evening, July Ist, was one of the grandest affairs of the kind ever witnessed in Freeland. Long before the time set for the opening of the proceedings the large hall began to fill up, and when the Chairman of the evening, Mr. Frank Brady, stepped to the front of the stage there was scarcely standing room in the hall or gallery. Mr. John Brady, in behalf of the so ciety, made an address of welcome, and gave a general review of the society from its organization, in which he showed what had been accomplished by the members financially, morally and in tellectually. His address was one of in struction and was replete with good ad vices as to the future policy of the organization. The following programme was then carried through : Quartette, "Moonlight Will Come Again" Mrs. Hayes, Misses Reilly and Chas. Mcerschbacher. Piano Solo. "The Robins Return" Miss Mame Dougherty. Address Rev. M. J. Fallihee Solo "The Raft" ■ C. Mcerschbacher. Recitation "Suppose" Miss Mame Hayes. Solo "My Heart's Delight" Master George Reilly. Recitation "Little Boy Blue" John McMenamin. Medley of Irish airs, Jas. and Mame McDonald. Silent Drill St. Ann's Pioneer Corps Piano Solo "Music on the Water" Mrs. Peter Reilly. Lecture, "The Present Time or As Wo Are," Bernard McManus, of Wilkes- Barre. Quartette, "Come Where the Lillics Bloom," Mrs. Hayes, Misses Reilly and C. Mcerschbacher. The address of Rev. M. J. Fallihee was one that brought down the house. In it he advised the young men to beware of that disease commonly known as "a swelled head," and byway of illustra tration cited an instance of a Kansas post master, who became so full of egotism as to insist upon his patrons coming into the pOBt-office with uncovered heads, but after a dose of treating, in the way of mopping up the floor of the post-office with him, he cried hold, enough, and thanked those who took such interest in his treatment, and was completely cured. The Rev. gentlemen dwelt upon the fact, that to make a society a success all its members should work in unity, and gave by illustration the manner in which our National State and Municipal Gov ernments are carried on. The minority is never found in open revolt against the majority, but work on no matter who is at its head, and so it should be in societies; all should work in unity for the common good. At the close of his address he was enthusiastically cheered. The lecture of Beynard McManus was the leading feature of the evening and the one all eyes were centered on. As Mr. McManus came forward to speak he was warmly received. He commenced by referring to the number of invitations lie had from other societies similarly situated as this one was, and how, owing to business engagements, he had de clined, but when he received the invita tion to speak here to-night he could not refuse it; for it came from the friends of his youth and so near to the home of his birth, that he made up his mind to ac cept it. lie then took up the subject of his lec ture and for over one hour the audience was kept in good humor, and ut the close, when the gentleman beßonght them as Americans to be true to themselves, their neighbor and their country, the ap plAuse which followed was tremendous. The exhibition drill by the St. Ann's Pioneer Corps was good, and goes far to show what man is capable of doing under proper instuction. At the close of the programme dancing was indulged in, and seventy couples participated m the grand march, which was led by Mr. Wlliiain Brogan and Miss Kate Rogan. Dancing wis continued until morning, when all dispersed to their homes well pleased with the even ing's enjoyment. The St. Patrick's Cornet Band ren dered some choice music before the meeting opened. A Justice Outwitted. Tuesday evening while McClcllen's circus was exhibiting near the L. V. It. It. depot an attraction of another kind was going on in a side tent in the shape of gambling. As is usual with such concerns, a gang of sharpers follow and fleece the unwary. Some of Freeland sports got badly taken in and were sensible enough to say noth ing about it. John Itasay, of the Points, was one of their victims to the extent of forty-five dollars and at once had a warrant sworn out before Squire Davis, of the Points, who had one of the gang brought before him on a charge of gamb ling. At the trial a number of witnesses were examined on both sides, the de fondant having 110 less than thirteen, all of whom swore that he was not the man who they saw handle the walnut shells and pea nails; yet the prisoner was found guilty and in default of bail held to ap -1 ear at court. The policeman of the uorough, who made the arrest, was quiet ly talking to a friend outside the build ing while the trial was going on, and, not knowing whether the prisoner was liberated or not, saw him prss out from the office and go about his business. Not until his honor came out bareheaded and asked in a stentorian voice, "where are the constables," did anyone know that there was anything wrong. But such was the case, for while the Justice was writing out a commitment, the wily fox, seeing his way clear, arose from the chair and the audience parted to the right and to the left and allowed him to escape. Much sympathy was expressed for his honor by those present, and the expres sion was used by many that "it is hard to beat a man at his own game." The Firemen to lMc-nic. The members of Freeland Citizens' Hose Company No. 1, met at their room yesterday evening, and after going through the routine business, appointed a committee of nine to make arrange ments for their annual pic-nic, which will be held on the 18th of this month. Invitations are being Bent out to neigh boring bands and societies to take part in the festivities. FREELAND, PA., THURSDAY, JULY 3. 1890. The Unfurling of Our Country's Flag.

The Anthracite Coal Sales Agents met at New York on Tuesday of last week and • agreed upon the July output,, which was fixed at three and one-quarter million tons, or about the actual quantity that i was mined in the month of June, for which month the actual production ex [ ceeded that which the managers had L previously agreed to mine by about half a million tons. An increase of from 10 , to 15 cents per ton on the domestic sizes, ' to take effect on July Ist, was also or dered at the sales agents' conference, and this hrd the effect of hurrying in to the hands of shippers many orders for coal at the old prices, fearing they might be compelled to pay the new figures on and after July 1. It is not unlikely that the July production of anthracite will considerably exceed the allotted tonnage for that month if the present movement of coal may be taken as an indiction. There is apparently a more confident feeling on the part of the pro ducers regarding the outlook for the trade during the remainder of the year, and the mining and carrying corpora tions are reported to be now working very harmoniously and adhering better to the circular prices for anthracite. The Pottsville Miners' Journal, in its weekly review of the anthracite trade, says : "The only important event of the week has been the fixing of the rates and allotment for July. The former shows an advance of 10 cents on egg and stove and 15 cents on broken. The latter has been fixed at 3,250,000 tons, as against 3,627,523 tons for July, 1880. The esti mated allotment for the balance of the year is 4,000,000 tons a month for all but December, which is put at 3,000,000. This will give a total of about 38,000,000 tons for the year. The trade is quiet in all quarters. Much coal is in storage waiting for a brisker demand, which will close it out at a good profit and will help out the deficit for the earlier part of the year in which it was mined. The stored coal was mined at much less than the prevailing prices. The storage system for this reason seems likely to consider- I ably add to the profits of the trade and ! render it reasonably remunerative, pro- I vided the harmony heretofore existing continues and no ruinous rate wars oc cur." I The total amount of anthracite coal i sent to market for the week ending ! June 21th, as reported by the several | carrying companies, was 835,017 tons, compared with 753,742 tons in the corres ponding week last year, an increase of I 81,275 tons. The total amount of an- ( thracite mined thus far in the year 1890 | was 14,328,278 tons compared with 14,344,- 1 198 tons for the same period last year, a decrease of 15,920 tons.— Ledqer.
