Delamater came to town from Hazle ton, where he acted as chairman of the eisteddfod at that place Monday even ing. He was accompanied by Messrs. Markle, Troutman and Roderick, of Hazleton, and held an impromptu recep tion at the Cottage Hotel. Many of the local lights of both parties called upon him and were pleasantly entertained. The Knights of the Golden Eagle Rand, which was on its way to Hazleton, de livered a few selections in honor of the candidate. Mr. Delamater appeared somewhat careworn and tired, owing probably to the extensive personal can vass the enemy is compelling him to make. A movement to have Delamater addresß a Republican mass meeting at this place in the course of a month or two is spoken of. Killed at Hazle Ilrook. George Kormany, a Hungarian miner, working at the stripping between Hazle Brook and the Lumber Yard, was in stantly killed on Friday by a piece of coal falling on him. He was barring some loose conl out of the face of the work when the piece above him slipped down without any warning and struck him on the back, crushing the lower part of his body fearfully. The men who were loading the coal were over twenty yards away from him. He was a mar ried man, aged 33 years, and leaves a wife and one child. He was considered to be a very experienced miner, far more so than the average of his countrymen, and as such was selected for the work he was engaged in, having held a miner's certificate. His funeral took place on Sunday afternoon. Interment in the Greek Catholic cemetery at Freeland. To Mountain I'ark. Take a vacation. Change is rest.

Quite a number of relatives and friends from Upper Lehigh and Free land attended the funeral. Teclmlcul Viol ut ion of the Mine Law. The hearing in the case of Daniel McDonald, a mine foreman in the em ploy of the D. A 11. Co., charged with violating the mine law, took place be fore Alderman Donohue, last Friday evening, at Wilkes-Barre. it appears that McDonald employed D. 0. Pritch ard, lately of Highland, as a miner without the latter having a miner's certificate, although he had a foreman's certificate which was produced, and it was on the strength of the ceatificate Mr. McDonald hired Pritchard, thinking of course that if a man held a foreman's certificate he was competent to mine coal. But the law said otherwise. As it was thought Mr. McDonald had not wantonly violated the law, the ease was dismissed, upon his promise to hire no more men without a miner's certificate.

The foot race between Dougherty and Coleman came oIT at Eekleyon Saturday lust and was witnessed by over four hun dred people. The distance was about 100 yards and the stakes were $25.00 a side. Promptly at 0.30 p. m. both men appeared on the scratch, and at the snap of a pistol made the start, Coleman tak ing the lead and maintaining it until the first sixty yards were covered, when Dougherty took the lead and held it un til the finish, winning by a yard. Hugh Dennion acted as stakeholder, James Shearon and Jed Murphy as referees, with John Evans as pitCnl firer. Bets were freely made, the feeling being slightly in favor of Dougherty. Cole man's friends were not slow with their money, and quite a pile of it changed hands. Arrangements have been completed for another race of one hundred yards between the same parties. This race will take place at Hazleton on October 15, and the stakes are SIOO a side. The Place to Get Your Clothing. I.

FREELAND, PA., THURSDAY, AUGUST 21, 1890. Wilkes-Ilurrc's Great Calamity. | At five o'clock Tuesday afternoon the i most terrible cyclone that was ever ex j perienced in this state struck Wilkes ] Barre. From what point it originated is j not known. The suddenness of its com ing was one of its most awful features, j The heavens were as black as night and | the wind blew with most frightful velo city. Whole rows of trees were blown down. Following this hundreds of | houses were unroofed, partially blown j over or completely demolished, and [ worse than all, "the visitation of death was sent upon a number ot people. Large districts in several sections of the city are in absolute ruin, and the damage will reach over one and a half million dollars. Passenger trains and locomotives at the depot were blown over, and everywhere in the city electric light, telephone and telegraph poles are down. The devastation is to be compar ed with nothing in the memory of the oldest inhabitant. Four men are known to have been killed in the Hazard Wire Rope Works. A house on Scott street fell in and three of the inmates were killed. The huge stack of the Kytle planing mill fell oil a man and two horses and all were killed. Two little colored girls were killed by a falling building on South Main street. Two men suffered death by the falling pf a portion of Steginaier's brewery, and a third incurred the same fate through the almost complete demolition of S. 1,. Brown's business block on East Market street. The latest account places the loss of life at seventeen. Several persons from here visited the scene yesterday. Many poor people have suffered heavy losses, and the savings of years which ; they had invested in homesteads were wiped, out in ten minutes. Building mechanics of all kinds can find employ ment there for weeks to come, as it is already known that fully 200 buildings have been blown down or otherwise damaged. Many of the structures were of large size and great value. SOME OF THE LOSSES. Approximate losses only can be given, as follows : Hazard Wire Rope Works, $25,000; S. L. Brown, $20,000; St. Mary's Catholic Church, $15,000; Malinkrodt Convent, $3000; Murray Shaft, $10,000; i Hollenback Shaft, $5000; White Haven ; Ice Co., $8000; Lehigh Valley Depot, $2000; Pennsylvania Railroad Company's I Round House, $3000; Ahlborn's Pork | Packing House, $5000; Paine's Oil House, $2000; Dickson Manufacturing Co., S3OOO. In addition to these bun- j dreds of citizen's have suffered losses running from SSOO to SSOOO. BASE BALL. —The Soapies defeated Harleigh on i the letter's grounds on Saturday. Score, 22-16. —Lebanon and York (better known as | the Cuban Giants) play at Wilkes-Barre on Labor Day. —The Upper Lehigh club was defeat ed at Sandy Run on Saturday by the score of 8 to 2. —A very important meeting of the Free land Base Ball Association will be held at Miller's Hall to-morrow evening. —Rain stopped the Young America- Gimler game at Highland on Sunday in the third inning.

A little management could bring those two teams to play an exhibition game here about that time. It would pay. —The appearance of the Freeland club in three distinct uniforms on Sunday was quite a contrast to Allentown, who showed up to perfection before the game in the neat uniforms of the lately dis banded Inter-State club. HAZLETON IIADLV ILKATKN. The Drifton club put up a strong game Saturday afternoon and in the presence of a fair audience defeated Johnny Mc- Geehan's aggregation of ball tossers from Hazleton. Welch and Mulvey occupied the points for Drifton, and Hughes and Bellas did the battery work for their opponents. Much reliance was placed on Hughes by the visitors, but Drifton found no difficulty in sizing up his shoots and pounded out sixteen runs. Welch pitched in his usual tine form and Hazle ton made 'but six runs. ALLENTOWN WASN'T IN IT. For two hours and thirty-five minutes last Sunday the eight hundred spectators at the park were treated to an exhibi tion of "yellow" ball playing. The Allentown club made a favorable im pression while at practice, and a good, sharp game was expected. Instead of tliis they became victims of a bad case of "rattle after the first inning, and when they succeeded in casting off the spell in the eighth Freehold's score was up in the teens. The fielding of the home club at times was much below the average, but they did some very good work at the bat, Jennings and Boyle carrying off the honors in that line. Freeland opened the game and brought in one run in the first inning. When the visitors got their turn to use the stick they started off at a winning gait and gauged Welch's deliv ery for five hits and tile same number of runs before being retired. Freeland's second brought them nothing, while Allentown added one more, making the score 6-1 in their favor. But it was in this inning the visitors' troubles began. Father Jennings took a hand in the game about this time and through his brilliant coaching a victory was won. One after another of the Allentown players fell victims to his captivating voice, and dur ing tlie next six innings they showed what they didn't know about playing hall. One in the third inning, four in the fourth, seven in the fifth, two in the sixth and one in the seventh is the ordor in which the sixteen runs wero made by Freeland. Allentown added two moro to their score in the eighth, giving them a total of eight. Three twirlers wore in tlie box for the visitors, hut none of them could do anything to evade tlie slaughter. With tlie exception of tlie first inning Welch pitched a very steady game. —Call at George Wise's Sadlery and Harness Btore and examine his new and supurb stock of Fly Nets. Prices away down.

The public are not buying coal and the mar ket becomes more and more overstocked. I This week there ' has been a radical j I movement for reduced output. Besides 1 j the collieries that have been shut down, | the Feast of the Assumption on Friday made an almost universal holiday in tlio Schuylkill region. This will shorten pro duction for all the companies, and par ticularly for the Reading and Lehigh Val ley Railroads which have been the heav iest miners and shippers. There is absolutely no change in the anthracite situation or outlook since last week. What the trade wants is a wave of arctic ! | weather that will induce consumers to j buy coal, and until something like it j I comes and creates a buying movement j J the congested condition of the coal mar- j [ ket will continue. Even the coal agents are affected by the prevailing stagnation, i for they seem to have intermitted their j I usual meetings to go through the farce of ; I pretending to advance prices that will j J not stay up. It appears from Statistician ■ Jones's figures that the July allottment j was but slightly exceeded, 3,310,078 tons being mined when the allottment was 31 millions. Yet the company could hardly market this, and a careful investigation shows a slight increase in the amount at the shipping ports at the close of July compared with the beginning of the mouth, and that there was about 400,000 toiiß of coal less marketed in July than in July, 1880, while production this year i is only 282,818 tons behind the same date last year. The policy now being pursued seems to he the limiting of the 1 aggregate production to an average of about 125,000 tons per day. The total amount of anthracite coal sent to market for the week ending August 0, as reported by the several carrying companies, was 796,445 tons, compared with 785,399 tons in the corres ponding week last year, an increaso of 11,040 tons. The total amount of an thracite mined thus far in the year 1890 wasl9,679,ooßtonscompared with 19,9fd,- 820 tons for the same period last year, a decrease of 282,818 tons.—l A Monument to Philip (.inter. I A meeting to formulate a programme j for the celebration of the 100 th anniver sary of the discovery of anthracite coal by Philip Ginter, was held in Summit Hill Tuesday evening. The meeting | was held in pursuance of a resolution of | the Town Council of Summit Hill Bor ough, declaring that this important event in the history of Pennsylvania be duly | celebrated. The proposed commemora | tion contemplates the erection of a j monument to Ginter and an imposing ! demonstration at its completion in Sep | tember, 1891. | At the meeting Tuesday night repre- I sentative citizens from Mauch Chunk, [ Lansford and .Summit Hill were present. ' Among other interesting letters favoring the project was one from Hon. Eckley B. Coxe, who expressed himself much pleased that the movement had been j inaugurated, and promised to aid it in every way in his power. It was decided that the Town Council of .Summit Hill be tho executive committee and have entire supervision of the celebration; also, that there shall be a general committee, rep resentative of the anthracite coal region of the Lehigh Valley. Of this latter I committee W. D. Zehner, of Lansford, was made chairman. | Another meeting will be held in the | Court House, at Mauch Chunk, on Thursday, August 28, when the member ship of the committee will be completed. To Whom it May Concern ! | Notice is hereby given that from and after this date, James J. Gillespie is not | authorized to collect any more hills for me. Any persons paying him will do so at their own risk and will be oblidged to pay the same again to me. JOIIN C. BERNER. Freeland, August 18, 1890. POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENTS.
