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.

made sad.

. scalding water burned one of the boy's
feet badly.
One of the engines that has been used

friends.
A six-year old daughter of John Bren

be buried tomorrow afternoon.
Some of the young people are talking
of having a sleighing party.

In the lecture room of the Presbyterian
church on Wednesday evening an enter

ham, the noted elocutionist, assisted by
his sister Ruth. These two distinguish-
artists have a world-wide reputation
or giving refined and interesting enter

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.

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

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,

of art and advertising, has seldom been
produced.

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.

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. The interment
j will be made at Hazleton cemetery.
Suit for Duiitutfe.H Compromised.
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. Mrs. Dennenny is at present
| residing on Washington street, Freeland,
i and is employed us primary teacher at ,
: iV oodside school. Her numerous friends I
are pleased to learn of the successful ter- .
iniiiation of the case.
