VOL. IV. No. 37. LOOKING FOR FOOLS. New York Sharpers Working the Green Goods Game. THE COUNTRY FLOODED WITH CIR CULAKS TO CATCH PEOPLE WHO WANT TO OCT RICH QUICK—IN DUCEMENTS TO HE DISHONEST. The green goods game has been work ed fur so many years in every section of the country that people generally consid ered it about played out, although a case comes to light every now and then shoeing where some avaricious country man has been buncoed. The frequent exposures by the newspapers of the plans of counterfeit dealers have almost broken up the business, and the man who nibbles at their flattering baits and gets left is set down as a person deserv ing of no sympathy. During the past few weeks the eastern portion of this State has been Hooded with circulars from New York, in which inducements are made to business men to handle the goods. Enclosed with each circular is a clipping from a Western newspaper, de tailing at length the arrest of one of the gang and his subsequent release, because the government experts refused to testi fy that the money was counterfeit, the imitation being so good. Some of these letters have found their way to Freeland, and the following is a copy of one re ceived by a young business man here: CONFI IIENTIAI,. DEAR Sin.— l am desirous of obtaining a shrewd agent In your locality to handle my "g< -ods." I enclose herewith a newspaper clip ping, which gives all tllo information that could be desired and explains Itself. Thinking you are in a position to handle my goods safely ! I have concluded to write you, and if you don't I care to invest in this enterprise I hope you will ! excuse the liberty I have taken In making the I proposition. I have a very sup. rior article of j the kind, in faot the best over issued or put on the market; the sizes run from one to twenty. I warrant each and every note to be perfect as to paper, coloring, vignette, printing, engrav ing and signatures, and when made to appear as having been handled much, I defy the la st bunk clerk or expert Pi tell them from the gen uine. It has cost mo a great deal of time and money to perfect these goods nrd I HAVE AT LAST SUCCEEDED where many others failed, in producing the genuine fibre paper. My stock now iR as neat and perfect as human skill can make it. Remember, this is an article which will go anywhere and everywhere, leaving for you a net profit of from ten to twelve hundred per cent., according to the amount you buy. These goods cannot be detected in the ordinary course of trade, and only at the treasury in Washing ton through the duplication of the numbers, and not then if the genuine bill of the same number is still in circulation, so that they are really as good as gold Now, my friend (as I will take the liberty of calling you;, we are strungers to one another, but if \ oil are desir ous of handling these goods, and will come here to see me, you will find me a square white man in ull my dealings, as my MANNER OF DOING ILL'SINESS. will show. It is as fpi lows: When you come here I will show you my entire stock, from one to one hundred thousand dollars, compare them with the genuine, and in fact submit them to any test ou see fit, before you pay me a single dol lar, then after you are thoroughly satisfied on every point, you can select whatever sizes you want and puy cash for your purchase, and carry the goods home with you. Now, my friend, to do this business safely, it must be done "face to face." Experience has taught me that this is the only safe way to transact this business, and most satisfactory for us both. When you come here you can see me and WHAT YOU ARB BUYING, and I can Pee and judge the man I am to placi confidence in for future business, besides it is absolutely necessary that I should see you on our first deal, as there are some few secrets per taining to the business and necessary to suc cess, wnich I don't care to put in writing, and is only Imparted to a customer "by word of mouth," at a personal Interview, ns a customer only has the same interest I have, in keeping these private matters to himself. Remember, 1 do not ask or expect to be paid one cent till you have the goods in your own possession. Do not ask me to send goods by mail r express, as it is not a safe way for either of us; it is better to be sure and safe than to transact a business of this nature in a care less manner. Now, my friend, if you wish to make a deal with me, do not hesitate too long over the matter. It is always BEST TO BE AMONG THE FIHST than one of the last to tako hold of a thing of this kind. If you will come on at once I can guarantee you a clear field to work in, and if i am sntlsfled at a personal interview that you would make me a good agent. I may offer yon more liberal Inducements to take the Stab agency and make you a special rate for any deal over s:.'o.o<X). If you have not the money to buy my goods, I would consent to your taking eorao confiden tial friend in with you, who has; provided, of course, he is trustworthy and could keep the secret You could both then come on together and mnkc the deal, however you would be vcrv foolish to tuke any one in with you if you 1 could raise enough money yourself. Yau can make money faster and easier by dealing in my goods than you ever dreamed of before in your life. You are BOUND TO BR SUCCESSFUL. There can he no such thin# us fail. An oppor tunity like this to make an independent fortune in a short time, and at a comparatively small Investment is well worth a favorable consid eration, and should not bo rejected hastily from conscientious scruples or otherwise. It was never intended that one man should have millions and another nothing; the wealth and good things of this world are too unevenly distributed; others have grown rich around you, but they were not slow to grasp opportu nities, and unless you have enough money to live comfortably on for the rest of your days, tills is just the business you want to take hold of, as the goods can be handled with PERFECT BAFEIY AND IMMENSE PItOFIT to yourself, and enable you to provide a com petency for your old age and pass your remain ing years in ease and comfort. No wrong in it. Uncle Sam has millions of OUR money locked up in the treasury, uselessly and unjustly so. I know that you have some distance to come, but considering the tremen dous profits and no risks whatsoever, it is well worth the slight inconvenience of a journey here, and as far as expenses are concerned I will make a liberal allowance to cover them, and I promise that if you do not find my goods just as represented, or should you upon any reasonable pretext whatsoever decline to con summate a trade, I guarantee to refund you your entire expenses, from the time you leuvo home till you return, and make u LIBERAL ALLOWANCE for loss of time, inconvenience to business, etc. Now, sir, your own good sense should tell you I can have no object in misrepresenting my | Roods and bringing you here on a fool's errand, • | dan do not, because I am in this line of busi j ness, doubt my word or consider me otherwise I than meaning you well, as you are not a>ked to invest a single dollar till you have sem, ex amined and are thoroughly satisfied in every respect, and have the goods in your own pos session. My terms are: $450 for $5,000; S7OO for $10,000; , SUUO for $a),000, and $40,000 costs SL\OOO. $5,000 tor $450 is the very smallest amount I will sell under any circumstances. I will give you the "State right," that is the sole privilege of handling the goods throughout your State, if you take slo,oooor more of my goods. My object in placing my smallest amount at $450 is to keep out irresponsible parties, as I want none but GOOD RELIABLE MEN to engage with me. Remember, I sell my goods so cheaply on the first, deal in order to give ray customer a fair build up a irade; on all after deals, which surely follow, I charge 25 cents on the dollar. I will not do a retail trude, as thereby it would let too many into the busi ness and its seerets. Now, sir, when you have fully made up your mind and prepared to come } MII, obey the following instructions, and do only j just as I tell you. be guided by my experience and advice and you will do just right. Do not, as long as you live, ever write me a letter; if you do I shall refuse to receive it, and furthermore all business relations between us will end The only way in which YOU CAN COMMUNICATE with me is by telegram. Don't forget this, and remember I mean exactly what I say. On receipt of your telegram, I will immcdt- | ately send you simple and plain instructions ! how to see and know me, and will appoint u place of meeting at some hotel, in some town within fifty miles of this city. If I am alive I will surely meet you. Don't attempt to come on to iind me without first telegraphing to me for instructions. Send telegrums, which will be promptly received, to the enclosed address. I In.pe you will tuke no offense at the above, if you do not iike the business, and I will trust n your honor not to do me any harm. Please destroy this letter. Yours respectfully, and in strict confidence, i i "You KNOW." On a separate slip of paper in the let ter are the directions referred to, and hy which communication can be had with tlie dealers. It reads: KEEP THIS FOR REFERENCE. When you arc ready to come and see me send ' me the following telegraph despatch: G. LEWIS, it . . , Third Avenue, New York City. Send duplicate engraving of Barrett, No. 758," and sign your telegram Tom, George, Henry, Frank or any other name you choose. I will understand who it is from. CAUTION.—In sending telegram be sure and send the right words and number, as it is abso lutely necessary. Without these I would not know who it is from. Remember write me no letters. I will not re ceive or answer them. P. O. S. of A. Building. The adjoining view, which arrived too late fur the last issue, is u nerfeot. t.iMnr a 1 .f the P. 0. S. of A. Building, and is taken from a photograph made by Jas. J. Ward on the day of it dedication, February 22. The structure is owned by Washington Camp Hall Asso ciation. a stock company formed from members of Camp 147, I*. 0. S. of A. Its cost is a little less than $10,00(1, and the build ing, though not the largest or most costly, is the finest piece of architectural work in Free land, and is from a design of Davey & Walker, of Wilkes- Rarre, Pa. The corner-stone was laid on September 10, 1891, and the bpilding was dedicated on February 22, 1892, the cere monies on both occasions being performed by State officials of the P. O. S. of A. The con tractor is Jacob B. Ziegler, of Freeland. After May 1 the first floor,, wnich consists en tirely of one store room, will he occupied by Jos Neil burger. The second floor is divided into offices and a medium-sized meeting room. The third floor is taken up completely with one large lodge room, which is occupied nightly by different organizations. Surmounting the J building is a globe and eagle, f and from the beak of the latter - red, white and blue streamels are suspended. Adjoining it on • the right is the hotel of De- Pierro Bros., now being erected. Powderly'a (>r<ut Letter. The Newsdealer callß upon the TRIBUNE for the inside hilory of the Powderly letter. It says that "any of the ttreat metropolitan dailies would have been glad to have published it in advance of their rivals, and the fact that it was made public at Freeland iH regarded as line of the explicable tilings." The let ter was published on February 18 in the Journal of the Knights of Labor, the ofii cial organ of the order. A request was sent from the TRIBUNE to the Journal to procure Powderly's consent to the use of his article, and feeling secure that it would be obtained, as was often the case previously, the article was put in type. The General Master Workman was ab sent from Philadelphia at the time, but word was sent front headquarters author izing the TRIBUNE to use it, and the ef fect itsappearance produced in the news paper circles of New York ami Philadel phia, as w ell as the coal regions, is well known. M in-t Strike to Have the Law Enforced. The miners of the .Schuylkill region are evidently opposed to the monthly pay system. This was demonstrated on Monday by a strike which took place at the Kpringdale or Park No. 1 colliery. The nten were notified sonte time ago by the operators, Lentz, Lilly & Co., that the semi-monthly system would be aban doned. This created dissatisfaction among the men and two-thirds of the force struck. It, is thought that the Morea colliery will join in the strike. The Tigers' Hull. Notwithstanding the Btormy weather the friends of the Tigers turned out strong on Monday evening and partici pated in one of the best balls held here since the Opera House has been opened. The artistic decorations of the hall sur passed nything seen here previously. The grand march was led by Jas. M. Gallagher and Miss Joe llrennan. De- Pierro's Orchestra and St. Patrick's Cornet Band furnished music during the evening. FREELAND, PA., THURSDAY, MARCH 3, 1892. THEY DEFY THE LAWS. Another Firm Refuses tj Pay Semi-Monthly. RAILROAD COMPANIES AND COAL KINGS OPENLY VIOLATING THE LAWS OF THE STATE-ITS EFFECT UPON WORKIN'GMEN. Notices were placed this week at all the collieries operated by the Pardees, in which their thousundH of emplox'ees are informed that monthly payments are to he resumed. As everybody well knows, this is a direct violation of the law and makes the operators liable to a fine not exceeding S2OO. Whether the factory inspector, whose duty it is to en force this law, will succeed is not yet known, but even though the coal kings are in the end compelled to retrench from their present position, they have given sufficient proof that they are a law-breaking class who are not worthy to associate with the most ignorant Hun in their employ. I The operators of the Lehigh region ; are the must dangerous people in Penn i sylvania to-day. They are sowing seeds ol anarchy in the hearts of thousands of workingmen, and when the day of reckoning comes, andcoine it will before they make many monthly payments, these same operators will he the first to feel the vengeance of the men whose rights they are now ignoring. Their lying statements that the men desire to return to the monthly system may possi bly make their violations excusable in the eyes of people outside the coal re gions, hut it lias no weight with the men here and only helps to embitter the feeling that is being aroused against thein. The utter disregard of the State consti tution by the Heading Railroad Company was enough to force upon the miners in one year. The latter allowed the min ing corporations to carry on their com pany stores since last summer, when the law said they should he abolished, with out protest, ami now for the operators to defy the s mi-monthly pay law is cer tainly carrying the matter too near the danger line. The coal and railroad companies call upon the law to protect their property in times of strife, and they should remember that it has always been done, because public sentiment bus always been opposed to allowing work ingmen to disrespect the law. Hut if the constitution and laws of the State can be evaded and openly violated by operators, then who will dare ask the laboring element to obey when they take the question in their own hands? And that is just what will be d. ne if legal means tail. The operators are said to have be n alarmed last week when they read Powderly's proclamation, which ended with the paragraph, "Let us ascer- j '** 2 rj; jjpflj tain whether we can legally redress our wrongs belore resorting to Well, they trail reason to be alarmed and if tlrey have any common sense they will cease their nefarious work of goading men on to a social revolution, or tlrey will to their sorrow discrver what that dash means. Ihe TRIBUNE will never advocate or uphold any principle or doctrine that is tainted with anarchy, but it will endea vor to make workingmen strike the tilow, peacefully if they can, forcibly if they must, that will free them from in dustrial slavery. It was not anarchy when Americans threw off by force Great Britain's yoke, and it will not be anarchy to break the chains that bold hundreds of thousands of American citi zens the slaves of A. A. McLeod and a half dozen coal kings. The railroad magnates and coal operators have yet time to tetreat, and if they do BO the workingmen will be with them once more in maintaining the dignity of the law. If not, let them imagine as they wish the meaning of that dash, and then prepare for what they can imagine. Cure for the Grip, La grippe is prevented and cured by the timely and persistent, use of N. H. Downs' Elixir. During the prevalence of la grippe two years ago the Bale of Downs' Elixir was enormous, and the cases in which the disease was broken up on the start by its faithful use were numbered by thousands. Be sure and get the Elixir on the first appearance of the disease, and persevere in taking it I until cured. Sold by Dr. Schilcher. Many License Applications Itefiiseil. There were many angry men around the c ourt House on Tuesday, according to the Newsdealer, and many who were not bashful let others know they were angry. Misery loves company and groups formed after the announcements were made refusing their applications for liquor licenses and many and loud were the questions asked but never answered, "Why didn't I get my license, so-and-so got his and why not I?" There were 1,042 applications; 133 of these are refused and 52 held over for a reconsid eration or fun her hearing to-morrow morning. In Freeland all the old appli cants and one new one, DePierro Bros., i were granted licenses. The applications | of Daniel Boner and It. Ludwig were I held over, and the following refused: Borough, Andrew Cumy, John Gaylo; township, Andrew Iludoek, Patrick Mee han, Albert Novak, George D. Thomas, I Daniel A. Furey, Robert Mulreany, Me j chelino DePierro. Reception at St. Ann's Convent. ! Early this morning the Sisters of Mercy Convent connected with St. Ann's Church was the scene of one of the most impressive ceremonies of the Catholic j Church. Two young ladies were ad j vanced from novitiates t. a higher de gree and one admitted to full member-1 I ship in the sisterhood. Miss Julia Brown, of Hazleton, known in the re-, j ligioUß world as Sister Antonio, complet ed her term of two and one-half years I probation and was given the black veil lof the order. Miss Susie McMenamin, I of South Heherton (Sister Camariek), and j Miss Madge McFadden, of Drilton (Sis j ter Magdalen), were given the white veil, j having faithfully served their six j months' trial as novitiates. Tie ceremonies were conducted by Bishop O'Hara, of Scran ton, who was assisted by Fathers Fallihee and Mc- Nally, of St. Ann's; Muzotas, of St. j Kasimer's, and Cummiskey, id' Hazle ton. They began at 6.30 A. M. in the convent chapel, and were carried out o an elaborate scale and in keeping with the solemnity of the occasion. Before asking the required questions the bishop spoke in a touching manner to the young ladies, defining the great step in life they were about to take inaccepting tiie vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. He asked of all present their prayers for those about to he received, that they might persevere to the end in the noble and sacrificing work they were about to undertake. About thirty friends of the young ladies were present. How It Took in Brooklyn. The comedian, Augustin Neuville, in his reconstructed play, "The (New) Boy j Tramp," is the card at the Novelty Theatre this week. The play is a strong melodrama with an excellent comedy j vein in it The scenes are laid in New ; York and vicinity. It tells the story of a legacy left to a brother by his parents, part of which was in trust to him for the benefit of a dissolute brother, who, with his female paramour, the keeper of a gambling house, plots the murder of his good brother and succeeds in the crime. For a time the scheme works wed but eventually retribution overtakes the criminals. The first scene represents a waterfall on the Passaic river, and the act ends in the murder. In the last act there is an East river scene at night, with the big bridge, illuminated steam boats and other craft moving, line moon light effects, etc. Mr. Neuvide, as Bhurpe, the tramp, who has a Nat Good win style about his acting, did some excellent comedy work, and becomes the medium through which the villain of the piece is brought to justice to the unbounded delight of the excited specta tors. There were several curtain calls. The supporting company is a good one. —Brooklyn Times. At Freeland Opera House, Friday evening, March 11. Seats on sale at! Ferry & Christy's next Wednesday morning. Monday's Ftal Accident. One of the saddest accidents that oc curred in town for some time took place at the Lehigh Valley station on Monday, and resulted in the death of Edward Gallagher, a well-known resident of town. Mr. Gallagher was accompanying a friend to the depot, and was walking along the track from Ridge Street. He failed to notice a train which was slowly moving towards him, and when warned by persons who were standing on the platform he appeared to become be wildered, and in the excitement o the moment was unable to cross the track and reach a point of safety. The tender of the engine passed over the middle o' his body, causing instant death. The deceased was a married man, aged 45 years, and leaves a wife to mourn his sudden death. An inquest was held Monday evening, when a number of wit nesses testified, and the jury returned a verdict of accidental death, thus exon erating the railroad company. The funeral took place from his residence on Main Street this morning, and was at tended by relatives and friends from here and Philadelphia; also by the St. Patrick's Beneficial Society. A requiem high mass was read at St. Ann's Church, after which the interment was made there. .Special Council Meeting;. The council met in special session last evening for the purpose of passing upon tlie accounts of the tax collector. The usual list of exonerations were made, after which the report was accepted and placed on file. A resolution that all the names of persons exonerated be placed on the minutes was agreed to. The list was a long one, many being dead or re moved away for over two and three years, while others were unknown and could not be found. The report is a very creditable one for the collector. The regular monthly meeting of tlie council will he held on Monday evening, when the newly-elected members will take oflice. Organizing: a Military Company, A movement lias been started in town to organize a company of the National Guard here. There is much talk around Wilkes-Barre about increasing the Ninth Regiment from eight to ten companies, and this has spurred on the people who are soliciting names for the new com pany. By having an organization in good working order when the time comes to make this increase Freeland will have quite a lead on other towns that are anx ious to he represented in the N. G. P. A number of names are already on the list, and a meeting of those interested will be held in a short while. Going (< California. Dr. W. V. Nichols left Freeland this morning for his home in Clinton, X. J., and after a few weeks recreation will re move to California, where lie intends residing for the future. 11 is friends ten dered him a pleasant farewell at the Central Hotel on Tuesday evening, and the Doctor left with the good wishes of all his acquaintances. PATTISON'S ANSWER. District Assembly No. 87 Hears From the Governor. ! THE LAW DEPARTMENT OF THE I STATE WILL CONTEND VIGOROUS- I LY FOR THE ENFORCEMENT OF THE | DAW REGARDING THE DEAL. | _At a meeting of District Assembly No. ! 87, Knights of Labor, held at Freeland | this week, resolutions were passed em j phatically condemning the Reading Rail j road deal. There were seventeen dele | gates present, representing fourteen local I assemblies of the Lehigh region, and the j resolutions, which also strongly denounc : ed the operators for returning to the monthly payments, were passed unani j mously. The District Master Workman • was instructed to forward a copy of the protest to Governor Pattison, with a re quest that he use every means in his power to have the deal declared null and void. That the man in whom the peo ple place so much confidence will be true to his trust cannot yet be doubted, and the following letter, received last even ing, is proof that Governor Pattison will do his duty: J Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, '( Executive Chamber. HARRISBURG, March J, 1892. 1 MR. J. D. MYERS, D. M. W., LOCK Box 24, FREELAND, PA. MY DEAR SIR. Your letter of the 29th ult. was duly received and contents noted. All the authority of the State will be exerted for the enforcement of the Constitution. The XVII article regulating railroad and canal companies is a very wise provision of the funda mental law. It commands nothing but what is right, and forbids nothing but what is clearly wrong. The Law De partment of the State will contend vigor ously for its execution. Section 12 of the same articles provides "the General Assembly shall enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article." Action by the Legislature providing penalties of imprisonment and tine, would prove a much speedier reme dy than that now offered. Very respectfully, ROBT. E. PATTISON. Game Club Meeting:.
