Miss Kate McG'ool, of Hazleton, is spending a few days in town. The picnic of the A. O. H. on Satur day evening was a grand success, both j socially and financially. The St. Patrick's Cornet band of Freeland paraded the principal streets of the town and discoursed some excellent music at the picnic. Frank McGroarty and Thomas Tully were quite popular among the young ladies at the picnic. John James went to White Haven in fifty-five minutes on his bicycle on the morning of the Fourth. This is the best record made yet from Eckley to White Haven. John Shellhamer, of Silver Brook, spent the fourth with his parents here. James Levan and Henry Hill and families drove to Silver Brook on Sun day. BASE BALI. GAME. The Audenried club was defeated by "Our Boys" in a hard contested game on Saturday afternoon. Score: Auden ried, 4; Eckley, 7. Among the interest ing features of the game were the run ning one-liaud catch of James Shearon at short stop and a running fly catch of Stranix in left field. The Battery work of both clubs was excellent. John James at third base played a splendid i game, having 4 put outs, 5 assists, 2 hits, j 1 run and no errors. James is a proinis- ( ing young player. A little better work j with the stick is all that is required of him now. In the ninth inning with three men on base and only one man out, lie captured a swift liner direct from the hat and made a splendid double play, retiring the side and winning the game amid rounds of applause. Batteries, Shearon and McCauiey, Eckley; and Boyle and Cannon, Audenried. From Another Correspondent. Miss Mary Murrin, of Hazleton, was Visiting her parents here on Sunday.

On Tuesday about half-past four o'clock there was considerable excite ment created here by a balloon that came from the South Side and landed on Frank Deitrick's house, and were it not for the shower of rain that fell about two o'clock tlie house would likely have been burned. When it decended on the roof it collapsed and took fire, hut the roof being wet it no effect on the shingles. Our boys who arc booming base ball this season should be encouraged, as they are putting up a pretty good game when all the drawbacks are considered. Still, we have a few critics here who cannot find a good word to say for them. The passenger accommodations on the p. 8. & S. are not of the very best yet, hut in a short time it will be able to com pete with any railroad in the state, both as to time and accommodation. Miss Maggie Carr, of the West Chester Normal School, is spending her vacation with her parents. Misses Ella and Annie Brislin, of Cam den, are spending a few days here among friends.

The Tarriers met on the rocks on Sat urday evening for the purpose of elect ing officers, and to make preparations to celebrate the Fourth. When the roll was called the motor man was found to be absent. A member stated that he saw him propelling his way towards r reeland and lie appeared to be loaded with electricity. A committee of two was appointed to take care of him over the Fourth. The nominations for Grand Tarrier was next called for. The Bliz zard, of Spring street, made a motion to postpone the election for another week, or until the delegates who had just ar- rived on the second floor of a cattle car ■ (the first floor being occupied by about j sixty hogs) from the Chicago convention, I could make their report. It was so or dered. One of the delegates asked that I the report be laid over until the next j meeting, as the noise made in the sleep-1 er by the other passengers had greatly fatigued them. This was also agreed to. Wide John made a motion that the fish ing department of the club furnish a supper of catties for the members on the evening of the Fourth. The motion was ruled out, as he was in debt in the company store, and had not the privi lege of making a motion. After a short scrimmage on the ruling of the chair it was decided to adjourn and meet at I'addy Carey's on Monday morning, as it was necessary to assist in unloading a few four-masted saling vessels there be fore the Nation's birthday could be properly celebrated. The Good Templars held a picnic here on Monday and all who attended had a splendid time. The Prospect Kock is one of the most delightful places that can be found any where to spend an idle hour. While the 1 hours may not be spent in idleness it is | plain that some of our young people spend many of them there. Rumor has it that Patrick Ferry, of | this place, and one of Hazleton's young ladies will soon try married life. The two Iveenan Bros., of Plains, were the guests of J. B. Keenan on the ] Fourth. George McGee has a very pleasant look about him of late. It is a boy. A large number of our young folks made a trip to Lattimer on Sunday.

Trouble Ht llomeHtea<l. Several hundred Pinkerton thungs tried to land at Carnegie's works, Home stead, near Pittsburg, yesterday, and were met by 50(10 American strikers. A battle followed, in which twenty-five or thirty were killed and several wound ed. The detectives finally threw down their Winchesters and surrendered. They are now locked up by the strikers, ! who are becoming more desperate every j hour. Non-union workmen or detec tives will not be tolerated under and consideration. Application has been made for troops to Governor Pattison, but he refuses to interfere until the sheriff of Allegheny ! county exhausts all his power and calls upon citizens instead of bloodthirsty thugs to preserve order. Everything was peaceable until the detectives ar- j rived and opened the conflict by shoot- j ing a Slav who was standing bv the wharf. Ik'the men are well armed, have lots of amnunition and will make trouble for everyone, except state troops, who inter-1 fere with them. Carnegie is now trav-1 eling through Scotland, trying to spend the millions he robbed from the Ameri can people with the aid of a high tariff. Such is Republican protection to Ameri can labor. J HE SUCCEEDS BLAINE. HON. JOHN W. FOSTER MADE SECRE TARY OF STATE. The Appointment of Ez-Minister Foster Olves General Satisfaction at the Capitol. Transformed from a Private Citizen to Secretary in Cess Than Three llours. j WASHINGTON, Juno 30.—1t took two hours and thirty-five minutes only to transform a private citizen into secretary of state of the United States Wednesday. At 1:40 the president sent to the senate the nomination of Hon. John W. Foster, of Indiana. At 8:03 the senate confirmed the nomination. At 2:35 his commission was sent to the president and he signed it; at 2:45 it was | countersigned by Mr. Wharton, as acting secretary of state, and at 4:15 Mr. Foster took the oath of office of secretary of state before Mr. Lewellon Brown, chief clerk and notary public of the state department. It was the quickost work ever known at the state department. There was general satisfaction at the Cap itol over the appointment. A Short Tenure of OfHce. It is said that Mr. Foster's tenure of office will termiuate on March 4 next, when Presi ! dent Harrison expects to again be inaugu rated and announce his new cabinet. The appointment of Mr. Foster is, therefore, only a temporary one. The appointment is especially desirable, not only because of the personal character and diplomatic accom plishments of the appointee, but also be cause of his peculiarly intimate acquaint ance with the business of the state depart ment in general, and especially with details of the most important question now be -1 fore that department, the settlement of the Behring sea controversy with England by arbitration. Sketch of Secretary Foster. ! John W. Foster has been for some years past practicing law in Washington. His chief work is in the domain of international law, in which he is conceded to be an ex ; pert. He has been three times appointed | envoy extraordinary and minister pleni potentiary for the United States in foreign countries, being once accredited to Mexico, again to Russia, and a third time to Spain. He was bom in Pike county, Ind., March 2, 1886, was educated iu the public schools of the state and afterward went through the stAte university of Indiana, where he gradu ated in 1855. He then studied law at Har vard university, and began the practice of his profession at Evansville. Ho had al ready made his mark among the young lawyers of Indiana when the civil war broke out. He at once volunteered for ser vice and was appointed major of the Twen ty-fifth Indiana infantry volunteers. After seeing some hard fighting ho rose to the full rank of colonel. In General Burnside's expedition to East Tennessee Colonel Foster headed a brigade of cavalry, and was the first to occupy Knox ville in 1863. At the end of the war ho was a brigadier general by brevet. Alleged Trouble with Dlulne. After General Foster settled down to civil life again he edited the Evansville Daily Journal. In 1669 he was made postmaster of that city. His first prominent political offlco was the chairmanship of the Repub lican state committee of Indiana in 1872. In 1873 General Foster was appointed by President Grant to be minister to Mexico. At the expiration of General Grant's term of office Mr. Hayes reappointed him. He went to Russia as minister in 1880, and held that office until late in the year 1881, when he resigned. In 1883 General Foster was appointed minister for the third time, on this occasion being sent to Spain. This nomination was made by Prosidont Arthur at the desire of Secretary Freliughuysen. Since his return from Spain General Foster has resumed his practice in Washington. One story anent the appointment is that at a recent meeting between the Canadian delegates who wished to negotiate a reci procity treaty and several officers of the state department Mr. Blaine gave expres sion to his views, and General Foster, who was present, said bluntly: "Those are not the views of the presi dent." Tko meeting abruptly terminated, and Mr. Blaine's resignation promptly followed upon the president's unwillingness to dis j avow General Foster's statement. The Port Jervin Indictments. Pom JERVIS, N. Y., June 30.—The grand jury of Orange county, in session at Goshen, presented three documents to the court in the Port Jervis lynching affair. One con tained the indictment of D. P. Howell, president of the village of Port Jervis, for criminal negligence. This was promptly quashed by Judge Cullen on the motion of District Attorney Hirschberg. Mr. Howell was active in trying to prevent the lynch ing. The other two documents contained indiefcmonts against flvo persons implicated in the lynching of Bob Lewis. Named by the President. WASHINGTON, July I.—The president sent to the senate the following nominations of postmasters: Edwin Adams, South Nor walk, Conn.; Nehemiah Jennings, South port, Conn.; Florence A.

The Freeland players gave another of their too-frequent exhibitions of care less and listless ball playing on Monday, and allowed 11 a/.leton to beat them by a score of 14 to 2. The game was devoid of life and interest, and barring the few fine plays of the visitors was the most tiresome contest witnessed at the park. Freeland failed to score until the ninth inning, when they made two runs in or der to save themselves from a shut-out. Following is the official score: FKEELAND. HAZ I.ETON.

On Sunday the famous Cuban Giants will occupy the park, and their oppon ents will be the best players that Man ager McNelis can secure in the coal regions. A tremendous shake-up has occurred in the home club this week, and many new faces will be seen wear ing the brown at the next game. The Giants' battery will be Stoyey and Wil -1 hulls, and it is expected that Kitsonand Kittrick, of Scranton, will occupy the points for Freeland. The Giants are playing fine ball this season, and the club is composed of all the old-time favorites, including Grant, Harrison, Boyd, Jackson, etc. A large crowd will certainly attend this game, as the manager is confident that both teams will be strong and evenly matched. The Fearnots played at Upper Lehigh on Monday, and at the end of the thirteenth inning the score was tied at 3. Upper Lehigh opened the fourteenth, and after two were out a dispute arose over a runner cutting third base. The game then ended in a wrangle. Other games on Monday resulted as follows: Mahanoy City, 13; Ashland, 4. Catasauqua, 5; Nicetown, 3. Catasau qua, 7; Nicetown, 4. Mahanoy City, 10; New Boston,"2. Jeanesville, 4; Tacony, 3;(ten innings), Jeanesville, 0; Tacony, 5; (eleven inn ings). uansford, 10. Painter A. A., 0. Scranton, 14; Wilkes-Barre, 4. Scran ton, 9; Wilkes-Barre, 8. Gustave Kndriss, who caught for Freeland on Monday, was recommended by Wm. I). Davis, the well-known base ball man of Philadelphia, as a first-class player, and upon this recommendation lie was tried. Flaraty, of Minersville, who pitched the same day, was also highly spoken of, but the work by both was not satisfactory, Kndriss especially acting as though he knew nothing about a game of ball. They were released. Jeanesville at present has the best club in Luzerne, Carbon and Schuylkill counties. There are rumors of internal trouble, however, but the work of the players do not bear out these reports. It is playing great ball and should be lo cated in a town w'liere it could receive better support. Lansford is showing up in very good form the past few weeks. Gormley and Fulmer, as a battery, work very good and usually get first-class support from the other players. It is on a solid financial basis, and is run on business principles. Freeland has lost seven games this summer, which is as many as it lost dur ing the whole of last season. Scranton has the best amateur club in the eastern part of the state. It lias de feated with ease all the crack teams of the coal regions, and if it continues its playing until the end of the season no one can dispute its claim to the cham pionship. Freeland has three won and seven lost. The Fourth of July games completed j the first half of the championship series iof the State League. Wilkes-Barre won ! with Ilarrisburg a very close second. The first six clubs were pretty well bunched, while the tailenders have been strenghtend and will make a fine fight in the second half, which started on Tuesday. Ashland's P. O. S. of A. building is being erected. It will be three stories high. A man was prostrated and died from the heat in an ice factory at Lancaster the other day. President McAlpln Re-elected. ROCHESTER, N. Y., June 80.— The conven tion of Republican clubs concluded its labors by the election of the following officers: j President—Colonel E. A. McAlpin, j First Vice President—John M.
