Foster township school board met on Saturday evening with all the members present, and completed the work of ap pointing teachers for the ensuing term. The selections made are far from being | satisfactory to the general public, and since Saturday evening the board's methods of making appointments have been the cause of much discussion throughout the township. Experienced and reliable teachers were set aside by the "powers that be," and their situa tions given to persons, who though prob ably as good, were no better than those whom they displaced and who could not present any just claims upon the town ship. The introduction of "peanut poli tics" and a systematic antagonism of certain applicants showed that the board is controlled by men entirely too small for their positions. Parties who have resided all their lives in this vicinity found their applications rejected upon the slighest pretexts, and the present board established a precedent which will work both ways in future selections. The complete list of appointments made is as follows: Drifton—Grammar, Andrew McNulty; primary, Rose C. Berner. Eckley—Grammar, C. If. Bates; pri mary, Mary Welch ; intermediate, Ella M. Campbell. Hazle Brook—Michael J. Gough. Highland—Grammar, 11. L. Edmunds; primary, Bella McGill. Pond Creek—Myron Zimmerman. Ripples—Gertrude Teets. Sandy Run—Grammar, James F. San tee; primary, Maine Caskey. Sandy Valley—l. L. Bates. Scale Siding—Ellen P. Stewart. South Heberton (new building)— Gra mmar, Tlios. Evans; primary, Annie Lind say. South Heberton (old building)— Gra mmar, John D. Herrou; primary, Katie Rogan. Tannery—Annie Metzger. Upper Lehigh—Grammar, George C. Farrar; primary, Rachael James. Woodside—Grammar, Frank Dover; primary, Sarah M. Denneny. The salaries of the male teachers wore fixed at $55, the same as last year. The salaries of the lady teaehers'remain the same as last year, excepting Misses Campbell, McGill and James, who have been advanced to the s4(l class. The school term will commence on Monday, August 17. Anarchy Uncased in liroadclotli. The anarchists of the coal regions, who are all powerful and can please themselves about obeying Pennsylvania laws, are preparing to prove their strength again. Those of the Wyoming region, like the Coxes, Markles and Pardeeß in this section, intend to snap their fingers at the statutes. A dispatch from Wilkes-Barre announces that with in the laHt two weeks it is estimated that not less than 700 to 800 Polanders and Hungarians have arrived in that vicinity. They were brought there by the Lehigh & Wilkes-Barre Coal Company. It is known that this company has' decided not to comply with the provisions of the two weeks' pay bill. Superintendent Lawall, the head of the division, stated thntsolong as he had the direction of the company's affairs the men would be paid only every month, us they have been in the past. It is believed that in order to be pre pared in case the English-speaking miners attempt to coerce the company into compliance with the law by striking, the company has brought these foreign ers and will bring many more. There is little prospect, however, that the men will strike, as they are liable to be ar rested for intimidation, conspiracy or some other trumped-up charge. They will make no resistance while the law has their respect, but as that is growing more one-sided every day something will drop in the near future. The strug gle between anarchy in tatters and anarchy in broadcloth is coming. ]'. O. S. of A. Officers. District President W. 11. liraden in stalled the oflieers of Washington Camp, No. 147, P. O.

Stabbed His ltlvnl. A sensational stubbing affray, in which a highly respected lady figured, occured at Fairview on Saturday night. Fair view is a neighboring settlement to Glen Summit. Miss Annie Stout, the young lady over whom the quarrel originated, was visiting at the home of Frank Sear foss, at South Fairview. Miss Stout is a handsome young woman, and lias a number of admirers, among them being George Aliiebougb, a brakeman. Allie bough evidently did not meet with favor from Miss Stout, as she wasoftener seen in the company of Mr. Heislop, another resident of the village. Alliebough, who is of an erratic nature, does not view this state of affairs with pleasure, and sought an opportunity to square matters. The opportunity came on Saturday last. Miss Stout had an nounced her intention of returning to her home at Solomon's Gap. Early in tiie evening young Heislop put in an appearance, with the intention of taking Miss Stout to her home. While they were in the parlor previous to starting out, Heislop sat down at the piano. As he was playing Alliebough entered. Ilis appearance was anything but favorable, and it was quite evident he had come with the intention of either escorting Miss Stout to her home or preventing his rival from doing so. lie demanded of Heislop what ho was doing. The latter was taken by surprise and before he could give an explanation Alliebough sprang upon him and plunged a knife into him repeatledly. Heislop fell to the floor in a dead faint. The young girl, who witnessed the affair, fled, screaming, in search of Mr. Sear foss, who arrived upon the scene to find Heislop where he had fallen, uncon scious, and no trace of his assailant. Heißlop recovered consciousness, but is in a eritieal condition. No trace of Allie bougli has yet been discovered. Subscribe for the TBIIIUNE. FREELAND, PA., THURSDAY, JULY 23, 1891. Murder mid Robbery ait. Lattliner. The inhabitants of the usually quiet i village of Lattimer were wild with ex citement yesterday afternoon, when a report was spread that little Katie Arion, an eleven-year-old girl of that place, had been found dead in her home, with her throat cut from ear to ear. Suicide was the first theory advanced and Deputy Coroner Buckley was notified to make an investigation. Upon his arrival a Jury of inquest, composed of the follow- j ing, was empanelled: Hon. Wm. It. Jeffrey, Robert Fagan, John B. Quigley, Edward White, Samuel Klinger and John McLaughlin, who viewed the body of the dead child. Dr. Brown was called upon to hold a post mortem examination, and it was conclusively proven that the girl had been murdered. She was the daughter of Bardia Arion, an Italian, and resided in a small shanty near the No. 2 breaker. Until the loth inst. the family had four boarders, and on that date one of them, Dominic di Francesko, left the house and went to live uptown. Suspicion was directed against this man as being the perpetrator of the foul murder, although there had been no trouble between the | family and him. He was taken in charge by Coal and Iron Policeman John Cook, and, together with his present i hoarding boss, placed on the witness stand. The men work for Contractor King, at the Butler Valley end of the | Jeddo tunnel, and gave a satisfactory i account of their whereabouts all day. ; There being no evidence to hold them both were released from custody. The mother's account of the sad affair was that she went at 10 o'clock yester-1 day morning to pick huckleberries, leav- j ing Katie in charge of the house ami j with her a two-year-old child. Upon her return at 2 P. M. she found the door locked, and looking through the window ! saw Katie lying in a pool of blood on the i tloor. She gave the alarm and several men who were cutting timber at the top of No. 2 slope left their work and broke I open the door, where a sickening sight met their gaze. Life was extinct and j the blood from the deep wound was trickling down her neck to the floor, i where it collected in one spot under her I body. By her side laid an old butcher j knife used by the family for carving purposes, and on it was one small speck j of blood. The little child which remained at home with Katie was too young to know what had transpired in its presence, being scarcely able to talk. There is no i doubt, however, but that she was a wit- ' ness to her sister's death, as she was ' terribly frightened and several times mentioned "a man," "a man." No other intelligible utterance could lie obtained from her and it is not likely that any | further light can be thrown on the case ! through her information, which went to show that the deed was committed by a man, whose object was robbery. Three trunks were broken open and $35 in money and $lO worth of jewelry were stolen. The doctorßexamination proved that the girl had not been assaulted, but j was cut about the hands, showing that she resisted the robber as far as her strength would allow. Several suspicious looking persons were i seen about the vicinity of the slope yes- j terday, but as the breakers are idle little i notice was taken of them. The investi- 1 gation will be continued this evening and a number of witnesses are to be | examined. • "Dig .loo" Wants Damages. "Big Joe" the most famous of the four survivors of the Jeanesville disaster, i was in town yesterday. He has not done any work since he got well. He claims that he can't work on account of' trouble with his eyes, brought on by the nineteen days' confinement in the mines. 1 He thinks that the least the company should have done was to give him enough money to start up some business in Has- \ leton hv which he could make a living for his family. The company only gave him fifty dollars, and this Joe considers was given to him as a present. He has a family of four small children, the old est being a little more than five years old. He has sued the company for damages, and thinks that he is entitled to a nice round sum. Two of his com- ; rades have gone to the old country, one of them having been given $l5O, and his j passage, and the other S2OO without pas sage. He is permanently incapacitated for work in the mines, and as he is quite a young man his damages will he measured according to his expectancy of j life.— Speaker. (tinker's Latent. Scheme. Dog days are here, and High Consta-' hie Linker is looking for the unmuzzled curs that roam the streets. Burgess Powell has issued a proclamation stat- ! ing that all canines found running at, large, without a mask, between now and September 1, are liable to be killed, and a fine of $lO will he imposed upon the owner of any dog caught. Rinicer ! expects to capture several hundred this ; season, and is corresponding with the , authorities at Sing Sing, with a view of i leasing their electrocuting apparatus, j If this can be obtained he will dispatch the dogs to their happy hunting grounds without shocking their nervous systems. \ The borough pups last night held a caucus uptown, and by a howling vote denounced the proclamation and His Highness. De moc ru th Kucu u rugcd. | The announcement of Senator Quay's I withdrawal from the chairmanship of I the National Republican Committee oc casioned much comment this week. It was held by a number of Democrats that the outlook for the Democracy in i this State is hopeful from any point of view; that with Quay continuing todirect, the affairs of his party, defeat of the Republican ticket seems inevitable for ! the reason that victory is almost certain, j and that, in the event of his stepping aside, his followers would take no part in the compaign, but would say, "let the persons who wanted Quay knocked out elect the ticket." There was apparently much encour agement extracted by the Democracy from the announcement of the Senator's intention to resign from the chairman ship of the National Republican Com mittee. Leading Republicans, the men who enjoy the confidence of Quay, pro fessed not to be surprised, but rather /that they have been expecting it. It [was said he desired withdrawing long ago, but could not do so while "under fire." Now, it is held, he feels he can consistently step aside and let somebody else assume the direction of the party's affairs. Liquor People In Trouble. The Lehigh Coal and Navigation Com- | ' pany on Saturday struck terror to the j : heart of every owner and proprietor of j the hotels and saloons in Lansford. ! The agents of the company notified them to remove from and surrender their res- ; ! pective premises because of the viola tion of tne clause in the title deed pro- ■ ; ldbiting the sale of liquor. The serving ! of the notices created a decided sensa- < i tion, involving, as it does, a number of ! business places which have been selling ; for several years. 1 Following are the parties affected by the company's order: Wilson J. Bitner, : Mansion House; James 11. Gallagher, Lansford House; James Early, Rising Sun Hotel; John F. Maloy, Palace Res taurant; Moses Houser, American Hotel; Patrick Brislin, James T. Mul liearn, Oelia McHugh, John A. Qninn, | Daniel Mulhearn and John Jones. People from a distance will perhaps better understand the situation by knowing that every foot of ground in the borough of Lansford was originally owned by the Lehigh Coal and Naviga ! tion Company, and the deed for every : lot or piece of land sold by it contains a prohibitory liquor clause. There are ! two kinds of these deeds on record, the I lirst containing simply a prohibitory ; clause, and the second, containing this stipulation, and also a reverting clause. | The lirst kind was issued up to the year j 1872, and the prohibitory clause reads as follows* Subject, nevertheless, to the condition that j ' no spirituous liquors or other intoxicating 1 i drinks shall be sold or vended on the premises, j I It will be noticed that to this clause ! there is no penalty attached and there i fore no means of enforcing its provisions, but in all the deeds since 1872 another i clause is added, which calls for the for | reiture of all land, property and im | provements, in case of violation, the same to revert to the company. I The interested parties have engaged ' counsel with the intention of lighting ; the corporation in the courts, and the | outcome will be watched with much in terest. The defense will probably he that the clause is not in spirit with the I laws of the State, also that the company, by not enforcing the provisions at the very outset, implied permission to sell; j ! therefore it is now, after their money is i involved in the business, too late to j interfere. HitzletoniuiiM At It Again. Hazleton authorities would not think of allowing the inhabitants to amuse themselves with a pleasant game of base ball every Sunday, so the people find enjoyment in trying to slaughter each | other, and the justices reap a harvest ' every Monday morning. Last Sunday, according to the Standard, one of the attractions was as follows: Moses Israel and Joseph Cohen, ped dlers residing on East Mine Street, amused themselves by a little battle on Sunday afternoon. Instead of observing the Sabbath, Mrs. Israel devoted the day to washing, etc. Cohen took upon himself the liberty to admonish the I woman for breaking the Sabbath. Israel ! heard Cohen threatening to have his I wife arrested. A short time after Cohen | was attacked by Israel and struck on the head with a stone. Cohen did not wait until Monday to have the warrant issu i ed, hut went and lodged the information against Israel. The warrant was served and Israel was given a hearing at nine j o'clock Sunday evening. He was com mitted to the lock-up until Monday, when he was to be removed to jail. Meyer Silverman on Monday became Israel's bondsman for his appearance at court. At the Squire's office on Monday ; R. Smulyn and one of the witnesses became involved over the testimoney. | Smulyn struck the witness. He was ar rested, but upon entering hail for his . appearance was released. The Groom Wan ItaHhfiil. The Silver Brook correspondent of the Sentinel says: John Shovlin, formerly of this place, but now of Sandy Run, was married to Miss Annie Higgins on Tuesday. The bride and groom came here on the half-past five train Tuesday evening when the children of the town with all the tin cans and cow bells that I could be gathered, serenaded them. But the groom failed to put in an appear ance. The crowd left for their homes at midnight tired of drumming and giving the groom an overhauling for his neglect | in not putting in an appearance. To Our Sul>Hcrilers. | The special announcement which ap peared in our columns some time since, announcing a special arrangement with Dr. B. J. Kendall Co., of Enosburgh ' Falls, Vt., publishers of "A Treatise on ' the Horse and his Diseases," whereby our subscribers were enabled to obtain a copy of that valuable work free by send ing their address to B. J. Kendall Co. ] (and enclosing a two-cent stamp for mailing same) is renewed for a limited i period. We trust all will avail them selves of the opportunity of obtaining ' this valuable work. To every lover of ! the horse it is indispensable, as it treats I in a simple manner all the diseases which afilict this noble animal. Its phenomenal Hale throughout the United j States and Canada, make it standard j authority. Mention this paper when sending for "Treatise." , State of the Coal Trade. The trade is very dull, and there are not many new orders for coal being booked at present. The weekly output, however, continues almost unprecedent ly large, and there is a great deal of coal being, stocked at various places for future distribution. The trade is con siderably demoralized owing to the com petition of some of the mining and carrying companies for tonnage, and ; consequently the prices for coal are , weak. The May circular prices are re i ; ported to be the ruling quotations at - present for large contracts, and there is not a great deal of coal being sold at the June figures. Chestnut coal is at pre sent a drug on the market, and, there i i fore, owing to the large production of | other sizes, is accumulating rapidly. * j The total amount of anthracite coal i sent to market for the week ending ■ | July 11, as reported by the several * | carrying companies, was 830,492 tons, ; j compared with 758,913 tons in the corres :l ponding week last year, an increase of * | 77,579 tons. The total amount of an i thraeite mined thus far in the year 1891 r was 19,208,458 tons, compared with 16,- 4 574.949 tons for the same period last year, an increase of 2,633,509 tons. — Ledger. BASE BALL. Jeanesville at Freeland, Saturday, 5 P. M. Brooklyn at Freeland, Sunday, 3 P. M. I I I Freeland went to Jeanesville on Fri day afternoon and met defeat in an ex citing but poorly-played game. Errors at critical points and their inability to bunch the hits were the principal causes. Jeanesville played an average amateur j game in the field, but could do nothing at the bat until the eighth inning. Up to this time they had only one hit off Anderson, who was pitching a magnifi cent game. In this inning, however, the Pittsburg twirler saw that it was im possible to obtain a square deal from Umpire Gallagher, who was there, as he is reported to have acknowledged after-| ward, to win the game for Jeanesville. j Ball after hall went straight over the j plate and, although Anderson pleaded for justice, the umpire refused to call j strikes. This completely discouraged the battery, and six hits were made, re sulting in five runs. After the first three innings Freeland lost all interest in the play from the treatment accorded them by the audience. Brady opened the coaching with one of his paralyzing whoops, but as soon as the crowd recov ered from its surprise he was forced to retire under the insulting remarks and blaguardism of the Jeanesville people. j Victory was out of the question, and the j visitors were satisfied to finish the game without being mobbed. Symptoms of barbarism and ignorance were very ap- i parent among the admirers of Percy I rlaydon's"pets," whose enthusiasm was uncontrollable. Nothing will induce certain members of the Freeland team to play again at Jeanesville, unless posi tive assurance is given that the people of that locality are civilized. 11l Following is the score: JEANEBVILLE.

The Reading Club, which was to come here for Sunday, was noti fied to cancel the dnte for the same rea son. The weather prophets of the Free hind Association proved themselves un reliable, as the day turned out to be perfect and just suitable for ball playing. Quite a number from Hazleton and sur rounding towns were disappointed and a large audience would have been present, as the game was largely advertised for miles around. I I I The Tigers defeated the Fear Nots of Prifton at the park in that place on Sun day. Seore, 17 to 12. I I I Tim Keefe, the popular pitcher of the New York team, has reeeived an uncon ditional release from the management of the club, and lias played his last game with the Giants. If for nothing else but out of pure gratitude for winning the pennant in 18811 Sir Timothy should have been kept on the pay-roll by Manager Murtrie. I I I Commencing at 5 P. M. on Saturday the Freeland people will have an oppor tunity to enjoy twenty-four straight hours of base ball life. 'J'lie Jeanesville- Frecland game will begin at the above time and there is no doubt but that it will be one of tiie hottest contests ever played in this town. The home team will put in their strongest material in order to retrieve the honors lost on Fri day and the visitors are also strengthen ing their club for this occasion. After the game a grand picnic will bo held by the Freeland Association at the Fire mens' Park, where an evening's enjoy ment can be had. On Sunday the Brook lyn Club will make its first appearance in the coal regions and will be given a large and enthusiastic welcome by the people of this section. This club lias been secured at a great expense by the local management, and, as the price of admission will not be advanced, they should be given a first-class reception, such as only Freeland people can give. Game called at 3 P. M. Extra arrange ments have been made to accomodate tiie audience and the best of order will be maintained in all future games. Any person guilty of boisterous or ungentle manly conduct will he expelled from the park by the special officers. "I.cnaliaii Johnny ami I.eiinluui Jim." Senator Ilines tendered a banquet the other day to a number of prominent Wilkes-Barre people, including judges, clergy, lawyers and county officials, at his summer residence near Bear I.ake, The following morning a scurrilous and low-lived screed, in what purported to be verse, appeared in the Wilkes-Barre Record, in which the Senator and his guests were coarsely assailed. John and James Lenahan, two prominent mem bers of the Luzerne liar, wore referred to in these terms: There was Lenahan Johnny anil Lenahan Jim, Halt brothers In blood but full brothers In sin. j John immediately called at the news- j paper office and was informed there that I the author was no less a personage than j ex-Attorney General Painter. Eenahnn | then walked down to Palmer's office, and locking the door from the inside, proceeded to take oil his coat. Palmer was very much surprised. Lenahan said: "I will show you if you will insult me." Palmer dodged behind the chairs and cried murder. Other lawyers in an ad joining building came to tiie rescue, and saved the ex-Attorney General's life. Lenahan insisted on an apology, how ever, and Palmer had it published on Saturday in the Record, in which lie assures the Messrs Lenahan that he had no intention to wound their feelings. Nevertheless the vulgar lines perpetra ted by Mr. Palmer at the expense of his neighbors were most insulting, and Mr. Lenahan is entitled to credit for com pelling the ex-Attorney General to make a public apology.
