Freeland, Pa., January 20, 1893. EDITOR TRIBUNE. —Much has been said and written of the benefits to be \ derived from a well regulated debating society, but it is questionable whether our young men fully realize the import ance of attaching themselves to a move ment of this nature. I have a personal pride in literary societies, and see in them the mighty lever in the elevation of our young people. Of course, no man need expect that the pinnacle of fame in debate or political economy is to he reached at hop, skip and jump. It cannot he done. The fame that is won at one fell swoop won't hold color, hags at the knees and turns out in the end to he mere no toriety. The young man who joins a debating society with a firm determination to work and study and to throw his whole being into the struggle will come out of the contest with a strong intelligence, a keen intellect and in every respect a wiser and better citizen. We know that under all forms of government the ultimate power lies with the masses. It is not kings nor aris tocracies, nor land owners nor capitalists, that anywhere really enslave the people. It is their own ignorance. And this is most clear in the United States, where the government rests on universal suf frage. In this country the working masses can mould to their will politicians, legis tures, courts aud constitutions. And yet how far from agreement as to needed reforms are working men's organi zations? We do not find that concentration of thought or that clear and precise plan of actum that must of necessity precede all great reforms. Bitterly conscious of in justice, and feeling in their inmost hearts that the present social conditions are wrong, they spasmodically cry out i and iu their blind rage and unholy in- j fatuation they destroy better than they | build. It is an awful thing that sym pathy so keen and enthusiasm so earnest should he so misdirected. The aim of the Catholic Young Men's Literary Institute is to educate its mem bers to a fair aud full understanding of all social and political questions, thereby enabling them to act wisely, prudently and intelligently in their duties as citi zens of this mighty republic. In this spirit we appeal to all young men, who believe in intelligent action ; /and in the elevation of mankind from a lower to a higher being, to join us in this movement. We do not ask that you j be philosophers or statesmen. We only I ask that you be earnest in your desire to i understand all matters that may he dis cussed and we are sure that your good, hard, common sense will do the rest. BY THE PRESIDENT. | DRIFTON ITEMS. John Brennan, one of our respected residents, buried a six year-old daughter ' last week. This is the third he has * buried in less than four months. He j has the sympathy of the town. Almost every day last week from six to ten sleigh-loads of school children from the South Side passed through town on their way to Freeland. Emmet Sweeney, son of E.J. Sweeney, is lying dangerously ill at the home of his parents. llis recovery is in doubt. * The report that Coxe Bros. & Co., were going to cut loose from the P. & R. is without foundation, at least at present. Owen Fritzinger, foreman over a sec tion of the stiop hands, was con lined to his home at Freeland severul days hiht week ou account of sickness. Miss Annie Coogan, of Shenandoah, is here visiting among frien Is. The engine which was brought here from Miinesville is undergoing repairs in the shop and will he ready for service sometime this week. A great deal of trouble was ex perienced in keeping the breaker going last week. Loaded cars are side-tracked on nearly all of the spare tracks in the yard here, with not much prospect of getting them out as long as the cold weather continues, l John White, a miner in No. 2 slope, had a hand severely injured on Thurs day by having it cut with a piece of coal. Harry 8. Keck, an engineer on the 1). S. & 8., was off for several days last week on account of sickness. St. Ann's fair receives a good share of patronage from many our residents on the evenings it is open. Tomorrow the teachers of the public schools, Messrs, Martin and Simmons, and Misses Lock man and Christy, will give their pupils a sleigh ride to Hazle ton, if the weather will permit. Mrs. Eckley Coxe, we are pleased io note, is about again alter a severe illness. Michael Lennon, one of our oldest "residents, had a severe attack of sick ne.-s last week, v It is said the chicken thieves are reap ing a harvest in certain sections of town, ami the people who ure at a loss would prefer to have it kept quiet. On Saturday the township delegate election will be held here. A lively time is expected. * At No. J breaker is employed one of the Slavs who took a prominent part in the Homestead battle last July, and as a relic of that memorable day he carries a bullet from a Pinkerton rifle in his left leg. He creates much amusement among his fellow-workers by giving ill broken English his reminiscenesof the fight against C'arnegia, and no more ar dent supporter of the principles of union ism is in the town. He is well acquain ted with all the Homestead labor leaders, and although he cannot read he remem bers every detail of the great strike. UPPER LEHIGH NOTES. Our townsman, Gus Hentcliell, has bid adieu to the mines, and has accepted an agency from the Clauss Shear Co. He is selling a set of knives which every family should posses. It consists of a bread, a cake and a paring knife. They are made of a different pattern from anything on sale hereabouts, and a woman needs only to see them to know that she wants a set. The bread and cake knives have scalloped or serrated edges, which add greatly to I heir cutting qualities, and warm bread and frosted cake can be cut easily and without mak ing a crumb. The paring knife is strong and durable, will not rust, and should be in every household. Mr. Hentcbell is meeting with much success since he began canvassiug, and the goods he is Belling can be relied upon. Dr. H. M. Neale attended the eleventh anniversary banquet of the Clover Club of Philadelphia on Thursday evening. This club is one of the Quaker city's most famous organizations, and its an nual gatherings bring together many of the most brilliant men of the country. Upper Lehigh may be pardoned if it takeß pride in knowing that our people were represented at the banquet, and represented by such a genial and jolly gentleman as Dr. Neale. Joseph J. Shaw and J. C. Jones, of Upper Lehigh, on Friday beat A. A. Bachman's record in the shooting con test for a deer now going on at Otto Brien's hotel, by one point. They made thirty points. The witnesses were John Stegner, Phil. Koenig and H. Zierdt.— Standard. Night school is still going on in this place and there is a large attendance nightly. The pupils seem to know a good thing when they see it. George C. Farrar, teacher of the pub lic school here, took his scholars out sleighing on Saturday. They drove to Hazleton and surrounding towns, and they were well pleased with the trip, A number of our young folks enjoyed a sleighride to Ed. Henry's in Conynham valley on Friday night. They report a good time. Some of our young men take great interest in viewing the electric light in the vicinity of Lattimer occasionally. And much in Santa Clause style, it is rumored, they bring presents for the natives. Misses Sallie and Nellie Duffy were visitors among Hazleton friends last week. William Herring is on the sick list at present. Mrs. D. J. Boyle visited Pittston friends last week. Chas. Keenan and Michael Mulligan, Jr., took a drive through llarleigh and other towns in that section last week. Several nights last week clothes which had been left on the lines by several of our neighbors were missing in the morn ing. The boys who have a club house here on a small plan are getting the blame. They are known as the Tar rierH, jr., and are following in tlie foot steps of the Tarriers, sr. This alone should clear them of all intent of com mitting crime. BIRDIE. ECKLEY CLIPPINGS. The residence of Mr. anil Mrs. Jnmes Lewis, of Eckley, wore a very enjoy-1 able appearance on Saturday evening upon the arrival of a sleighing party j from Miinesville, composed of the fol lowing ladies and gentlemen: Benj. G. , Norris and wife, Wm. Hall and wife, Wm. Minnick ami wife, Charles Mason and wife, Ambrose Mason and wife, John Davies and wife, Miss Krotise and Miss Carr and G. H. Thomas, of Free land. After indulging in several games the party sat to a table well laden with all the delicacies of the season. At a sea sonable hour the happy parly departed, vowing to return at an early date to pay the same compliment. If it continues snowing much longer | our poor married men will soon croke from earring water. But it can't be helped now, hoys. Night school opened here and is being well attended by our boys. The addition which is being put to the [ No. 10 breaker iB getting pushed rapidly, j Miss Bridget Maloney has accepted a position with J. C. Berner at Freeland. | The stripping operated by King & Co. suspended wotk for two months, on account of the cold weather. Andrew Washko, who was injured at No. 10 slope, has been removed to the hospital at ilazleton. Manus Cannon, of old Buck Mountain, has accepted a position at breaker No. 10. Andrew Wagner, who was married a few months ago, has taken up his residence on Main street. The heavy snow storm which raged the past week has caused a great deal of trouble to people of this place. The snow has drifted to the height of ten feet in places. Barney Carr's dwelling was completly snowed in. MARY ANN. JEDDO NEWS. On Saturday evening the young ladies of about thirty summers took unto them selves a sleigh ride to Beaver Meadow, and while they have not made known what kind of a time they had, we are sure it was pleasant. Not to he outdone, however, the Improved Order of Bache lors are devising ways and means to take (Continued on l'age 4.) FREELAND, LUZERNE COUNTY, PA., JANUARY 23, 1893. BOROUGH DEMOCRATS. The QuieteHt Convention Ever Held by the Party in Freeland. About forty Democrats assembled at Donop's hall on Saturday evening to nominate a ticket for the electien next month. There were very few candi dates looking for offices, and no enthu siasm of any kind was aroused. The convention was, without doubt, the quietest ever held by the Democrats of Freeland. Rodger McNelis, chairman of the vigi lant committee, called the meeting to order. Thomas Campbell was elected permanent chairman, John D. Herron secretary, and A. W. Washburn and Frank McLaughlin tellers. After an ad dress by the chairman the following ticket was nominated, the most remark able thing about it was that none of the men named had any opposition for any office: Burgess—Edward P. Gallagher. Councilmen—Wm. C. Berner and Ber nard McLaughlin. Tax collector—Hugh McGeehan. School directors—D. F. Shelbamer and John..!. Welsh. Constable—John B. Quigley. Auditors —Rodger McNelis and H. G. Deppe. Judge of election—John D. Herron. Inspector of electon—Manus Con aghan.

The area of anthracite coal territory in Pennsylvania is 236,500acre5, of which Reading Coal and Iron Com pany owns 102,000 acres. The Reading company by lease or otherwise controls about 11,000 more acres of coal land. The Lehigh Valley Coal Company owns 22,723 acres of coal lands and leases 13,- 092 acres. It owns a majority of stock I in other corporations which own 14,259 j acres. Upon the 50,074 acres owned or controlled, there are fifty-four collieries, of which Lehigh Valley operates seven teen, the others are operated hy other companies and individuals. All the Le high Valley coal stock is owned hy the railroad company. The Lehigh Valley Railway Company owns 3619 acres of coal lands, hut does not operate them. The Lehigh it Wilkes-Barre Coal Com pany owns 13,500 acres of coal land ami holds 3000 acres under a lease.

The capital stock outstanding is $0,212,500, of which the Jersey Central owns $6,600,000. Its bonds and other obligations amount to $12,000,00(1, of which a small portion is guaranteed by the Jersey Central. Waste No Time on a New County. j Representative Jeffrey is found on the fol lowing committees: Bureau of statis tics (chairman), appropriations, iron and coal, judicial apportionment, vice and immorality. The speaker exercised good judgement when he placed Mr Jef frey on the last named committee. He had no doubt been reading of the num ber of murders and other crimes com mitted in the vicinity of Hazleton and thought it would he a good idea to bring the subject home to the member from the fourth. Now is Mr. Jeffrey's opportunity. Let him not waste any time 011 a new ! county, but introduce at once a bill to suppress crime and disorder in the Haz leton region. If he is equal to the task the law-abiding people of this end of the county will not be slow in thanking h i m.— Newsdealer. Tea Party and Oyster Supper.

Markle A Co. for SIO,OOO damages for the death of his son Patrick at No. 2 Highland breaker on April 21, 1891, was called for trial on Thursday. The plaintiff failed to ap pear with his witnesses, and a verdict in favor of the operators was according ly rendered. The reason of the plaintiff failing to appear, it is said, was because represen tatives of the company had effected a compromist shortly before the trial was called. The amount paid, it is stated, was $2,500. The hoy who was killed was aged about 14 years, and was employed in looking after a conveyor that carried coal from the breaker to the boiler house. On the day of the accident he was caught in some manner in the drag and carried to the end of the chain, killing him in stantly. The coroner's jury that was on the case stated in the verdict that the boy's death resulted through negligence on the part of the company in not providing a railing along the conveyor, as is called for by the mining laws of the state.
