On Thursday Lewis Ottnar, a driver for Hon. E. B. Coxe, drove the latter gentleman to the vicinity of Freeland. from them and came dashing madly down the highway through town anil continued their course in the direction of Jeddo. About this time, John Boyle, a son of P. M. Boyle, a lad of about 14 years of age, was engaged arranging harness on a dog to pull his sled in his! father's yard, when the jingle of sleigh bells attracted his attention, and looking over the brow of the hill saw the team coming. Leaving his own hobby in the yard, in an instant he was on tlie road side and had caught hold of the flying cutter and struggled manfully until he he climed over the back of the sleigh p.nd was in possession of the reins. The mad race of the horses continued until they came in sight of the M. E. church, Jeddo, when the little hero brought them to a stop. Here he was met by one of Dr. Wentz's hands, who assisted fiim in turning and taking them back. Truly this is the kind of a hero that the Godess of Liberty is not ashamed to smile upon. William Hincer a freight conductor on the Jersey Central Railroad, has ac cepted a position as Manager of Loco motives and Traveling Engineer on the I). S. & S. He entered on his duties last week. Mr. has ben employed for many years on the Central's Drifton branch, and of late years has had al most exclusive control of the trains on this section. The shop hands here are.still working nine hours per day. The employes were paid here on Fri day. Some it made smile and others it made sad. Frank Gallagher, a lad about 14 years of age, came home from work one even ing last week and being cold sat beside the stove. His mother attempted to lift a wash boiler of water off the stove when one ol the handles broke and the . scalding water burned one of the boy's feet badly. One of the engines that has been used as a shifter at Milnesville was brought here on Friday and is now doing service gn the D. 8. & S. Several new locomotives, it is said, will be added to the rolling stock of the I). S. & S. in the near future, aR the -■ traffic is entirely too heavy for the loco- j motive power now in use. The calendar fiend resides here with- i out a doubt. One young man is said to have a collection of thirty-two which he takes great pride in showing to his friends. A six-year old daughter of John Bren nan died on Sunday morning. It will be buried tomorrow afternoon. Some of the young people are talking of having a sleighing party. Many of the citizens here are of the opinion that some action should be taken in respect to the old school house. Since it was strained so badly by the cavein ' some time ago it is not in good condition. The delegate election for township I offices will be held next Saturday. Then look out for music. For the past week the residents have been considerably annoyed by frozen hydrants. Elliott Oberrender, of Drifton, dined here with his uncle J. I'. Oberrender, Wednesday lust.— Ashley Bulletin. The I). S. & S. employes will be paid ! today. It pleased the residents of this place very much to see the announcement in the TRIBUNE that we are T< have anelee trie railway. This should have been | years ago. John Edmunds, a miner in No. 2 slope, had a foot seriously injured on Friday by having a pick run through it. j UPPER LEHIGH NOTES. In the lecture room of the Presbyterian church on Wednesday evening an enter tainment will be given by Ralph Bing ham, the noted elocutionist, assisted by his sister Ruth. These two distinguish- artists have a world-wide reputation or giving refined and interesting enter tainments, and they will draw exceed ingly well here. The affair will be held j under the auspices of the Young Peo- 1 pie's Society of Christian Endeavor. A number of the Turners are loudly lamenting their inability to go to St. Louis. One of them read in the papers the other day about the beer war in that city, and when they learned that four Bchooners could be had for a nickel their sorrow knew nc bounds. As they can not go 4o St. Louis, they are praying fervently for a beer war in Freeland. It is safe to predict that Conrad Brebm will be the next tax collector of Foster township and has hosts of friends, espe . cially in this place. A new engine house is nearly com pleted at old No. 3 slope. A number of inside hands are com plaining of things going very slow of late. * John Sweeney was laid up with a sore Ifand last week. % A short talk with the Grand Tarrier last week leads us to believe that the *club will soon be called together for business again. He said the Lyceum which was in existence here several years ago, was only a cloak thrown over j a few political jobbers, so as not to be detected defrauding honest citizens and : that now they were a thing of the past, j D. J. Boyle, Geo. McGeennd Erasmus were delegates to the township conven tion last week. Mrs. Whitney has been visiting friends i in Pottsville last week. S. S. Hoover went on a trip to Shamo kin on Saturday. Daniel J. Malloy, of Sugar Notch, is visiting at the residence of Mr. John Duddy. The residents of this place think it quite a distance to Freeland, but the boys of that place says it's not far. Some of our young ladies are also of that opinion. Mrs. P. W. Amon, of No. 3, has been on the sick list for the past week. Mrs. S. S. Hoover and family are enjoying a visit to friends in Heading. Street Hallway Company\s Application. A special meeting of the borough coun cil was held on Thursday evening, with all the members present. Harry E. Sweeney, of Drifton. representing the Union Passenger Railway Company, presented an application for authority to construct and operate a railway on Cen tre, Chestnut, Walnut, Front, Main and Washington streets. The application was accepted and held for further ad visement. It being understood that the Hazleton and North Side Electric Railway Com pany also intends to present an applica tion, the members instructed the secre tary to notify them to have it ready by this evening, when a meeting will be held to receive it. Mr. Sweeney also stated that the com pany he represents will also operate an electric plant here, and that permission will be asked of council in a short time to allow them to erect poles, wires etc., on the streets. A hill of Street Commissioner Boyle for $27 for labor last month was accept ed and ordered paid, and one from John Cunnius for $30.34 was laid over. Coxe ItroH. & Co. Object. A hill in equity has been filed by Coxe Bros, against Patrick Givens, tax collec tor for Foster township, says the News dealer. The plaintiffs claim that they are the owners of certain lands and prop erty in Foster township. For the year of 1892 the valuation of this property as filed by the assessor amounts to $121,- 905; in addition to the general road tx of 10 mills the supervisors have levied a tax of 3 mills which amounts in the case of Coxe Bros. & Co. to $305.92. This tax was levied to pay a debt said to he due the retiring supervisors. The auditors have not made their report for 1892 and whether the amount is due the retiring supervisors cannot be learned. Until the accounts of the retiring super visors can be Audited it is claimed that the extra tax levy is not warranted by law. The plaintiffs ask for an injunction to re-train the tax collector from collecting : this tax until the accounts are properly 1 audited. The attorney for the plaintus ' is A. 11. McClintock. One of the Neatest. The wonderful popularity attained by Hood's sarßaparilia calendar last year, will he repeated by Hood's household 1 calendar-almanac for 1893, just pub lished. A happier combination of calen dar and almanac, of beauty and utility, of art and advertising, has seldom been produced. The lovely picture of "The Young Discoverers" lithographed in many deli cate colors, will be welcome every where, while the pad is attractively printed in colors hut with sharp, plain figures. Copies may he obtained uf the druggists, or by sending six cents in stamps for one copy, or ten cents for two, to C. I. Hood it Co., Lowell, Mass. Wluit the Pennny May Get. An exchange says the total severance of the Central Railroad from the Read ing combine has led many railroad men to believe the rumor that the Pennsyl vania company will control the Lehigh it Susquehanna road. It is hardly probable, although if true it would make the Pennsylvania a for midable competitor of the Reading, and would give the former what it has long coveted—a direct line through the Le- , high Valley from Phillipsburg to Scran- , ton. A Poor Director Sick. Poor Director Samuel Harleman, who left Weatherlv to spend Christmas with ( hisdau liter, Mrs. Lenhardt, at Nome- , town, is not yet at hotne, according to the Weatherly Herald. While there he was taken sick and has not been a con- i , dition to return since. A gathering in the head, somewhat similar to his sickness last spring, is again the trouble. Last reports say he is in a critical condition. PLEASURE CALENDAR. January 21—Ball of Assembly No. 5, National Slavonian Society, at Freeland opera house. Admission, 25 cents.

FREELAND, LUZE HAZLETON MEN SCARED. VERY MUCH EXCITED OVER FREE LAND'S ELECTRIC ROAD. The Union Company's Application flan Stirred l*p One of the "Paper" Com ' panics on the Other Side, and They Threatcn to Make a Dig Fight. The announcement of the TRIBUNE that there was some hopes of Freeland i having an electric road built was no sooner made than one of the Hazleton companies, known as the Hazleton ami North Side Company, had its representa tives over here predicting the wonderful things that they intend to do for the town. While there were no prospects of any other capitalists entering the electric railway business here nothing was heard of the Hazleton parties, but the moment some one announced that such a matter was under way in earnest, then our friends from Hazleton were ex ceedingly anxious to do anything and everything for Freeland people. The Hazleton company is one of two or three corporations controlled by sev eral persons interested in the Lehigh Valley Railroad. They have procured enough charters during the past year to cover the lower end of Luzerne county and part of Schuylkill with railroads, but so far all their tracks and work are visible only on paper. Since their organization these com panies have been regarded by not only the people of the North Side, but also by many persons in Hazleton, as creatures of the Lehigh Valley Railroad Company, and to be used by the latter company in blockading all movements that might possibly draw any traffic from the rail road. Wheather this conclusion is correct or nut the TRIBUNE cannot say, but it is the opiuion of a great many people. Probably the Hazleton men are just as much in earnest as the Union Passen ger Company, and if they can prove that to the people of this side there is no question but that their propositions for right of way, etc., will receive all the consideration they merit. However, from the tone of the two articles which we produce below, it would seem they intend to claim everything from the start and want a monopoly of all privi leges that may be lying around. This, from the Plain Speaker , may throw some light on their intentions: The FREELAND TRIBUNE, a few days ago, published an article detailing at length the plans and specifications of an electric railway to l>e called the Union Passenger Company of Freeland, the object of which company would be to build un electric road from Freeland hav ing branches in every direction and reaching all the surrounding country. Although the charter has not yet been applied for, t his com pany claims to have secured the right of way from the supervisors of the various townships that the contemplated line will cover. The application for u charter is now being put in shupc for presentation to the state de partment, but it is very likely that it will not accomplish its object for the reason that the law granting street railway rights, as corpora tions, says: "No company shall be granted a charter to construct a street railway, on any street or highway on which any track is laid, or authorized to be laid under any existing charter," and as the Hazleton und North Side Electric Company's charter covers nearly all the points named in the Union Passenger Com pany's application, it is very clear that the stumbling block will be reached when the ap plication for a charter from the new compuny reaches the state department. A reporter of the Plain Speaker called on Mr. A. Markle, president of the Hazleton and North Side Electric Company, yesterday afternoon. Mr. Murkle was found in company with Mr. A. P. Klukcsicc, one of the charter members of the Hazleton and South Side Company. When asked by the reporter whether he had seen the article in the FREELAND TRIBUNE, Mr. Markle said that somebody hud called his attention to the article, und that as far as the Freeland peo ple building a railroad was concerned, ho could see no objection to it, but on the other hand was in favor of all the rapid transit we could get. "Hut us to the route laid out for the Un ion Passenger Company, that is another tiling. A greater part of the proposed route is covered by charters already granted to our compuny and in our possession; so you can readily un derstand that it is not plausible that a second charter will be granted covering the sumo ground." Mr. Markle said farther: "We have all our supplies bought und curs contracted lor, and have already commenced operations on the Hazleton line and expect to have cars running on at least part of it by the llrst of next may. Our company is composed of men from Hazle ton and vicinity, who have the interest of our city at heart, and we do not expect to make a fortune out of the road, and the object of build ing the road was more to benefit the city and enhance the value of property than to make a dividend paying Investment." From the above conversation It will be seen that the likelihood of the Union Passenger Company's charter being granted is not con firmed by the law ou the subject. That the granting of such a charter would be of benefit to Hazleton is a debatable question on which opinion is divided. The last sentence in the above article will furnish food for thought to every one interested in Freeland. That the granting of a charter to the Union Com pany would he of benefit to Hazleton is Lnot a yery debatable question, as that was not organized to advance Ilazleton's interest, as was its opponent. The fact ©f tin- Spt ih r bringing up this j question shows from what stand point the Hazleton company views an electric road on this side. If it can he worked so as to | push Hazleton ahead, then it is all right; i if it is for Freeland's interest, then they | will fight it. j The next is from the Sentinel , Mr. : Markle's paper, and may be regarded as | official. It studiously avoids any refer ence to the Union Company, hut goes on to state how zealously the North Side Company will work for Freeland's in ! terests: The nuuiugcra of the North Side Electric Railway are actively at work. Contracts have been made for all material and the cars wiil bo runniug in Freeland be- I fore the summer is over. I This company, composed as It Is, of local LINE COUNTY, PA., JANUARY 1(5, 1893. 1 capitalists of unquestioned financial standing and character, has determined to build the road with the distinct purpose of making it dc ixmdeut on Freelnnd and surrounding trade for protlt. In other words Freeland will bo the ' central point. The direct benefits to the town j can be plainly seen. The men at the head of this company have a : local reputation which they cannot afford to I imperil by failing to build the road or building ; it with the intention of unloading it. It is not ! a mere speculation and it is not and will not be controlled by outside speculators who have nothing to lose and everything to gain at tlio expense of the public. It is u permanent investment based upon the future of the region and the company can not recede from the contracts it has made. Its managers arc in themselves a guarantee of the purpose of the road which is to bo a tlior ooughly home institution and will be owned and controlled by people of the fourth legisla tive district. Furey's Groat Speech. Professor Furey, the erratic ex-school master of Freeland, pave a unique and diverting entertainment on the Wilkes- Barre square Saturday night to a large and enthusiastic audience. The speech which Furey delivered was noticeable, not so much for its continuity of thought and keen, logical reasoning, as for the extreme length of the words and the copious interlarding of classic quota tions. Raising his arm on high, he would ex claim dramatically: "Fellow citizens! the illimitable confines of this mundane sphere, whirling around through the etheric and circumambient atmosphere, does not contain a more indescribably truculent set of men than those who seek to represent hut misrepresent the great and sovereign people of this un- ; surpassable empire at Washington. "Well might the philosopher of old j exclaim as he sought with a lantern in daylight for an honest man: 'Quare j clausen f regit.' Or in the won Is of that wise and puissant impersonation of Re publican simplicity and honesty, whose! starred vest and stripped pantaloons are I the joy and admiration of the gay car toonist, E Pluribus Unum, et uos vie et ■ Whereat the crowd gaped in wonder, j shook their heads and came to the con clusion that Furey would be a great man • If he let grog alone. And lie would.— Exchange. Death of .Sister Mary Clare. Sister Mary Clare passed peacefully j away at St. Ann's convent at (i o'clock | yesterday morning, after lingering many | months with consumption. Iler secular ; name was Miss Anna Britt, and she was 30 years of age. She entered a Sister of ! Mercy convent at Philadelphia, and from there went to Hazlcton in 18S3. Upon the opening of St. Ann's convent in 1880 she came here with several I others, and has resided here since, ex cepting a short period lust year, when she was at Hazleton. While there the | sisters were compelled to leave their j I residence, owing to the squeeze in the j : mines, and at that time Sister (dare con ! traded a severe cold and has suffered since from nervousn -ss. The remains will be taken to St. ' i | Joseph's convent, Ilazh ton, this after- ' i noon, and at 0 o'clock tomorrow morn-1 | ing a solemn high mass will he read at: St. Gabriel's church.

About seven years ago Thomas Den- ■ , nenny, of Eckley, was killed by a gas I explosion in No. 2 slope at that place, i It was apparent to all that the accident, 1 ' resulted from carelessness on the part of I ! the operators, John S. \VentJE& Co., who : were the lessees of Eckley collieries at j that tone. j Mrs. Sarah M. Dennenny, the wife of j I the deceased, entered suit some time afterward for SIO,OOO damages. The ease had been continued and postponed j | several times, anil never came to trial, i | The company undoubtedly knew that ; everything was in the widow's favor, : and last week a compromise was effect-1 J ed by paying her $5,000 to discontinue I j the suit.
