VOL. V. No. 11. IT WAS A CONSPIRACY. BERKMAN SAID TO BE THE TOOL OF CONSPIRATORS. Tlio Police Claim to Have Dlxcovered a Well-Laid Scheme Hack of the Axxault Upon Frlck—A Supposed Accomplice Arrested. PITTSBURG, July 86.—The murderous at tack upon Henry C. Frick, chairman of the —Carnegie company, was not the work of a crazy anarchist acting solely upon his own impulses and imbued with the igpa that he was doing the country a service by ridding it of a great ironmaster. Instead it was an outcome of a conspiracy of the worst ele ments of the Russian anarchists deliberate ly conceived, and Berkman, the would be assassin, was oither the tool or the willing ally of the conspirators. first and important link in the chain of oVidenco pointing toward this conclusion was forged in tho arrest of a local anarchist twitli whom Berk man had been liv ing for moro than a week, and to whose abode he ap pears to have gone at the suggestion of tho notorious Herr Most. The Knold and he lives on Cherry street, o small thoroughfare Alleghany. It was through tho offi cers of the Adams A. BERKMAN. Express company in this city that the police learned that two packages containing currency and addressed to Berkman had arrived from Now York some days ago and had been delivered to Knold's address. The police immediately made a descent upon Knold's house, and his replies to the fow questions put to hifti not being satis factory ho was at once placed under arrest and brought to the Central station in this city. Hero, upon being interrogated, he admitted that Berkman had come straight to his house upon his arrival from New York on July 14, and had remained with him until last Friday—a period of eight days. When asked if he had ever had any knowledge of BerkmAn before he replied in tho negative, but said that tho anarchist had explained that he had gotten hie (Knold's) address from Herr Most. The police, however, take no stock in thifc story. They believe that Knold is closely connectod with tho New York gang of con spirators; that Berkman caino to his house as a part of the plot, and that, if he was so inclined, Knold could reveal the entire con spiracy. They claim to have ascertained during tho afternoon that Knold had not only shown Berkman the location of the Carnegio company's office, but also point ed Frick out to him, in order that he might know his man when the moment came for carrying out his diabolical scheme. An Accomplice Arrested. PITTSBURG, July 87.—Henry Bauer, who succeeded Herr Fricke as the head of the anarchistic bureau of literature in the Alle ghany district, was arrested as an accom plice in the attempt made by Berkman to take the life of H. C. Frick. Bauer is now behind the bars of Central station and hiA arrest, it is claimed by tho police officials, will greatly strengthen tho case against Berkman. Tho capture was made by De tectives Shore aud McTighe, of Pittsburg, and Detective Steel, of Alleghany. The three officers shadowed Bauer's place of abode until after midnight, but he did pot return homo until after 1 o'clock. In the morning the same officers went to the anarchists' headquarters, 7.S Spring Garden avenue, and captured their man. A list of names of seventy millionaires was found in a desk in Bauer's office. It is believed by the police they wore men to be murdered by tho anarchists. The Teport from Mr. Frick's residence is very encouruging. Although suffering some pain he rests comparatively easy, and the progress of the wouuds toward healing is eminently satisfactory to the surgeons in attendance. The sick chamber has been fitted up with elaborate cooling mechanism and can now be kept at a cool and even tem perature. All possibility of the intense heat producing inflammation iu the wounds is thus avoided. German Singing Societies. The annual meeting of the German singing societies was held at Reading this week. Among those that attended were the Lancaster Miennerchor, the Lancaster Liederkrantz, Soranton Lieder krantz, Concordia Sang Yerein, of Wil k os-Bar re; Wilkes-Barre Siongerbund, Hazleton Concordia Sang Verein, Hazle ton Miennerchor, Williamsport Turn Verein, Lehigh Sicngerbund, of Allen town; Shamokin Miennerchor, Girard ville Miennerchor, Potteville Lieder krantz, Germania Sicngerbund, Concor dia Miennerchor, Kaston; Beethoven- Verein, Bethlehem, and Lehighton Sicn gerbund. Monday evening all of the visitors assembled in Miennerchor Hall, where they were formally welcomed by the mayor and the officials of the Harmonie Miennerchor. After the formal cere monies all sat down to a collation, tables being spread in the available space in the hall. A number ot complimentary conceits were also given. A Heavy Storin. On Tuesday afternoon a heavy storm passed over lower Luzerne. At liazle ton several windows were broken and business signs blown down. The boiler house at Milnesville was unroofed, and trees and electrict light poles overturned. Patrick Smith and Michael Dougherty, better known as "Salem," of Milnesville, were slightly stunned by lightning, and a little child belonging to the latter had an arm burned by the same flash. At Stockton a freight car was blown off the railroad track. AI1 for Homestead. A Wilkes-Barre paper says that some of the leading labor advocates and prom inent miners in Plymouth are contem plating calling a mass meeting of all the miners and laborers of all the collieries in Plymouth and others who are in sym pathy with the locked out strikers in Homestead to devise some means of lending them a helping hand in their struggles for their rights. The miners and laboring classes in that section are heartily in sympathy with their brother workmen at Homestead and express themselves quite freely of assisting them to the fullest extent of their means. From the general opinion expressed by the people in Plymouth there is not the least doubt but that every workingman on the West Side of the valley would donate liberally when called upon. The subject is being debated among the miners, and it is their earnest intention to call a large public mass meeting in the near future. Saloon Men Victorious. There are a number of ex-saloon keep ers in Hazleton who are sorry they did not take out licenses this year. Under the impression that the "fee would be $5OO many quit the business for other pursuits, and were chagrined on Monday when they heard the supreme court had decided in favor of the borough fee, $l5O. The question was an interesting one, as the county treasurer demanded the $5OO from eacli applicant who was granted a license. After paying this sum one of them began proceedings to recover the difference, $350. The saloon keepers claimed that as the city govern ment had not been organized when the licenses were granted, only the borough fee of $l5O should be paid. Judges Woodward and Lynch in an opinion de cided that they should pay the $5OO fee. Judge Rice dissented and filed an opin ion in favor of the borough fee, $l5O. The case was sent at once to the supreme court, where Judge Rice's decision was sustained. Each saloon keeper will re ceive his $350 in a few day. A Deserted Child. A Polander by the name of Slavage, living in Edwardsyille, deserted his seven-year-old boy, says the Netradeakr, by leaving him sitting in the D. L. & W. depot in Kingston while tho father made an excuse to run across the street, informing the boy that he would return in a few minutes. The minutes came and hours went but the father never returned. The lad sat all day in the depot until a l'olander from Plymouth took charge of him and safely placed him in the hands of John Kuskie, the wealthy grocery merchant at the lower end of Plymouth, who is taking proper care of the child. He is a bright Polish boy and speaks good English, being born in Minneapolis. A wholesale busi ness merchant of Wilkes-Barre has volunteered to adopt the boy providing the father does not return. More Polls for the Points. The enterprising voters of tiie Points are not to be caught napping on election day, and in answer to a petition the court lias appointed H. C. W ills, of But ler, and Owen Fowler and T. A. Buck ley, of Ereeland, to view that district and divide it into two or more election precincts. The viewers will probably get to work as soon as possible. The citizens of the Points are to be com mended for the promptness with which they have met this question, and the sooner their action is followed by the residents of the borough tho less trouble will be experienced when the day for voting comes. It is not yet too late, however, and a petition asking for more polls in Ereeland will receive all the signers necessary to have it granted. Don't delay any longer. Sunday GORIIIK Ilazleton's barbers have started a Sun day closing movement. In this they are a long way behind Freeland's tonsoriai artists, as it iB impossible to find a shop open in this town on Sunday. The asso ciation here is very strict with this rule, and it is obeyed to the letter by every tiarber in Freeland, South Heberton and the Points. Sunday was formerly a very busy day here for the barbers, but since every place is closed tight the peo ple got used to the new order of tilings and everybody who gets shaved makes it a point to get into a chair before 12 I'. M. on Saturday. Ilazietonians will make some progress if they imitate the way tilings are run in this town. Said They 111.1 night. D. A. 10, K. of L., composed of the organized workingmcn of the Lacka wanna and Wyoming regions, met at Scranton this week. Resolutions were passed declaring that the manner in which the Homestead workmen receiv ed the Pinkertons was heroic; also that the efforts of the citizens of the state should be made towards the securing of a law for the settlement of diflicdlties between employes and employers by arbitration. BASE BALL NOTES. Laiißford people are indignant at the baby-like manner in which the Jeanes ville team acted there on Saturday. As Boon as the visitors saw they would have to play ball to win they began their us ual wrangling and kicking. Jeanesville lost, but Lansford will give them an op portunity to retrieve the defeat on Au gust 15, and of the coming game the llecurd will say on Saturday next: "The management desires to serve notice upon the Jeanesville people that no matter what the umpire says, even if it be wholesale robbery, tho Lansford boys will submit, rather than make ah ex hibition of themselves, as Jeanesville did here. Better loose a game than the respect of the audience." Tigers and Fearnots play at Drifton Park on Saturday at 3 P. M. Flaherty, who pitched for Freoland on July l and left town so suddenly, is now playing with Lost Creek. Weatherly Stars would like to hear from the Terrors of Fckley and the Ti gers of Freeland. Address P, 0. box 180, Weatherly, Pa. Beaver Meadow club will probably play at Eckley on Sunday. FREELAND, LUZERNE COUNTY, PA., JULY 28, 1892. AN AMATEUR DETECTIVE, lie Paid Five Dollarx for a Bailee and Wanted to Arrext Somebody. George Wetzell, a Quakake farmer, was arrested at Hazleton for acting suspiciously and carrying a big revolver. He had been hanging around several of the Lehigh Valley stations hereabouts for over a week. On Monday lie was at Hazleton and when a train approached the station he drew from his pocket a photograph that he looked at and then closely scanned the features of those who stepjied from the train. A constable noticed the funny actions of this in dividual and ventured to ask him some questions. He said that lie was a detec tive in searcli of an Italian who commit ted a murder somewhere in the West, and that he was going to pull him as soon as lie came to town. He showed the constable a large revolver ho carried and as much as intimated that there would be some shooting going on when his man came in on the train. He concluded that the man was crazy and informed another officer of his sus picions. They found him near Markle's bank examining his big pistol. When the officer asked him what he had he became very insolent and told him to go about his business. The constable and officer pounced upon the crazy man, for it was easily seen then that he was "off," but they hard time to take him to the lockup, for ho kicked and made every effort to bite the officers. They finally landed him and stripped him of fiis big revolver. The Speaker says that a gentleman who lives in Quakake valley, and who knows Wetzel, was in the city the next day and told the mayor that Wetzel was half-cracked and the best thing to do with liim was to liberate him and send him home to his poor family who were anxious about him. He was always a good person to work and support his family, but some time ago a person came to him and read to him a piece from a newspaper which offered to make a full fledged detective out of any person who would send five dollars to a firm in C'in cinatti. Wetzel was taken witli the idea and sent a five dollar bill in a letter to the Cincinatti firm, and in a short time afterwards received a package with a badge and the instructions for him to get a big pistol and start out at once to hunt up murderers. That's what he was doing when lie acted so curiously and was arrested. Another 11. S. St S. Collinlon. Engines Nos. 3 and 5, of tho I). S. & S., collided near Hazleton on Monday evening, and both were badly wrecked. The collision is said to have been caused by the carelessness of an opera tor, who was ordered to hold tile east bound train atOneida Junction. This he neglected to do, and, as both trains could not pass on a single track, the above result occurred. The trainmen escaped uninjured, but many of the em ployes of the road are in constant feur of such collisions, and it will require the utmost vigilance to guard against ac cidents unless the route is double-track ed. This should be done if the company lias any regard for the lives of the men who are dependent upon the orders of the operators. Weather and Crop*. The weather crop bulletin for tho week ending Sunday last lias been issu ed by the Pennsylvania state weather service. It says that rain is badly need ed everywhere. Except in those sec tions benefited by the heavy rains of Friday night, the crops are suffering, corn iB curling up and grass, potatoes, and gardens need rain badly. Streams are low and the ground is dry and dusty. Haying is generally finished and some oats have been cut. Tobacco plants droop and show lack of moisture. The hail on Friday night destroyed about one hundred acres of tobacco in York county. Elsewhere the storm did little damage other than to blow down the corn and injure fruit somewhat. Removing Danger Signal". For somo weeks past certain parties have made a practice of removing the danger signals from the sewer excava tions, leaving tliein unprotected and in such condition that persons driving at night are liable to go into them. This lias occurred so often that the borough police have been instructed to arrest any one found tampering with the signals, and the perpetrators of the act will lie prosecuted to the full extent of tho law, no matter whether they regard their ac tions as a joke or not. These lights are put up for the benefit of the public, and are very good things to let alone unless Bomehody wishes to get into trouble. Pleading for Keek. Professor David S. Keck, government educator among the Indians of Utah, New Mexico and Arizona, who obtained a furlough to come East to seo what could be done in behalf of his brother, William F. Keck, who is sentenced to be hanged for tiie murder of old William Nibeli and his wife, will return to his post to-day. During his visit Professor Keck endeavored to get some of the relatives of Nibeh and his wife to sign a Eetition to the board of pardons in elialf of William Keck. This they refused to do. The case, however, will be carried to the board of pardons. Hardly Knew the Town. Clias. Edwards, one of Lansford's prominent business men, is visiting his sister, Mrs. Joseph Jackout, of Jeddo. Mr. Edwards was formerly a resident of Jeddo, and is well known in these parts. He was in Ereeland last evening, and like many others who knew tho town in its early history, expressed surprise at its marvelous growth anj improved condition. Looting Muluiylklll'n Treasury. As the auditor's investigation begun last week continues new facts are brought to light concerning the doings of the ofilclala at the court houso last year. A statement was submitted to the auditors by the treasurer yesterday which showed that the commissions received by him during the year amount ed to $2510.51 in addition to his regular salary of $4OOO per annum. There appears to be a question whether the treasurer is entitled to all the commissions he claimed in his state ment, James F. Minogue said he was appointed county solicitor by the com missioners in 1891, but be did not con sider himself as such, although he drew the solicitor's salary. He never kept account of the expenses of his trips, hut drew on the commissioners for his hills and they paid them. Several other such queer transactions are reported, and the taxpayers are now beginning to see where the money went. Great Literary Contest. Tho members of the C. Y. M. Literary Institute, under direction of Rev. F. P. McNally, are hard at work preparing for a debate which will take place between them and the members of the C. Y. M. Literary Institute, of Green Ridge, Lackawanna county. The date of the contest has not been definetely agreed upon, but it is likely to be held some time in October at Green Ridge. The following is the subject of debate: "Resolved, That protection is a bar to national progress; is inimical to the best interests of the citizen; is destructive of the harmony that should exist between nations." As both societies contain several members who are thoroughly posted on the subject the debate will be a very interesting and intelligent discus sion of a question that now occupies a prominent position in national affairs. The Green Ridge Institute is in charge of the pastor at that place, Rev. P. J. McManus. Roa<l Caving In. The road leading from Freeland to St. Ann's church is in a very dangerous con dition. Yesterday morning a small hole appeared on the surface opposite the old Woodside slope. At first the hole was very small, but gradually enlarged to about two square feet. It extended in a verticle direction and was very deep. As it is almost in the centre of tho turn pike and cannot be noticed by a person in a vehicle the danger to horses is so much greater. The traffic on tho road is not very heavy or it would soon cause the entire surface to sink. Teams and others who have occasion to pass there now cross over the culm south of the dangerous spot. The road to-day is closed on both sides of the hole. Weiss lteer Intoxicating. The question as to whether tho drink known as "weiss beer" is an intoxicat ing beverage or not was discussed several times at tho meetings of the Catholic temperance societies of this place, but owing to the difference of opinion among the members no satisfactory conclusion could be arrived at. It was finally agreed to leave the question to Rev. M. J. Fallihee, of St. Ann's church, who had tho drink analyzed. The restilt of the investigation was that weiss beer is intoxicating, and the members of the temperance societies have been notified that any further drinking of it will con stitute a violation of their pledge. Saturda}''* Picnic. On Saturday afternoon Gillespie's or chestra and St. Patrick's cornet band will furnish the music for the second annual picnic of the St. Patrick's Bene ficial Society, wbicli will commence at Drifton Ball Park upon the conclusion of the game of ball between the Tiger and Fearnot clubs. Eacli of these clubs has won one game from its opponent this season, and this one will decide the championship. Everyone attending the picnic may prepare for a pleasant after noon and evening, as the committee has left nothing undone that might add to the pleasure of the public. Attempted Suicide. John Mann, of Ilazleton, tried to kill himself on Tuesday by putting a bullet in his head and two in his stomach. He waß found by his wife, who had him taken to the hospital, where one of the bullets was removed. He had been drinking heavily for several days pre vious, and on Tuesday morning imagin ed lie saw all sorts of hideous objects. Thinking to get rid of them lie went for a revolver and shot himself. Mann is well-known in Freeland through his connection with St. Gabriel's hand, of which he is leader. Announcement of Coming Event*. Picnic of St. Patrick's Beneficial Society, Drifton Park, July 30.
