VOL. VIII. NO. 16. HAUNTED BY A CRIME. MURDERER METZGER SURRENDERED ON MONDAY NIGHT. The Accomplice of Will llowmnn, Who P Ih Now Coder Sentence of Death, Gave Hiinelf Cp at Maucli Chunk—He Was Haunted by Hl* Crime. After being at large nearly a year. George Metzger, the murderer of tin Arabian peddler, Mike Johns, gave him self up on Monday night in Mauch Chunk, and was taken to Wilkesbarn on Tuesday. William Peun Bowman, a 19-year-old boy, is in jail waiting for the; day of the execution for this crime. Metzger is a year younger. Ten months ago Bowman, whose conscience troubled him, gave himself up and was found guilty on his own confession, and sen tenced to death. Now Metzger, after wandering all over the country, has de livered himself into the hands of the po lice. He, too, was conscience-haunted and from a big strapping boy of 15( pounds ho lias wasted until lie does not weigli 100. Weak and sick and haunted by his thoughts lie could not hold out. Three times he went to Wllkesbarro to give himself up, and three times he sneaked away again afraid. W Metzger presented a most pitiable ap pearance as in? stepped from the train at noon on Tuesday, securely handculTed to Constable Lauth. He was nothing but skin and bones; his eyes, sunken in his head, shone with a wild, glaring, haunted look; his face was pale and drawn and his every appearance showed the haunted life the boy had led. Ho did not seem to realize anything or know anybody, and would speak only a few wordss. He appeared to be deathly sick, and if not well taken care of may change his prison cell for a narrowei one in the cemetery. Nothing but pity was heard from those who looked on this human wreck and many think his reason is gone. Metzger was put in jail and District Attorney Fell notified. Ho ordered the prisoner to be held. Colonel Mar tin, the attorney for Bowman and Metz ger, drove up to the alderman's office the moment the prisoner arrived. Colo nel Martin pleaded for a stay of the hearing because neither the defendant nor commonwealth was in a position for a hearing. So Metzger was committed to jail for another hearing. When Mrs. Metzger saw her son she cried bitterly and said: "O, my poor boy, he would have better been dead than in this condition." lie turned to her and said: O, mother I am very sick." lie was asked if he had anything to say about the case and replied in a weak voice: "I don't want to talk about the shooting at this time." He was asked where he had been since lie left and gave, a disconnected account of going from Wilkcsbarre to Philadel phia, then out to Youngstown, ()., where he worked in a boiler shop three months. The rest of his time lias been spent in wandering over the country. He was in Wllkesbarro three days ago, but did not go near his homo, and only spent a few hours in the town. lie had only been in Mauch Chunk a short while. He told Constable Lauth ho did the M shooting, and tiiis confession may result in saving Bowman's life, for he was con victed chiefly on the assertion of the Arabian who escaped and swore that Bowman shot his companion. Coal I.a ml Values Kg v inert. The Carbon county commissioners, who have been sitting as a board of tax revision for the past two weeks, have completed their labors, with the result that the valuations of coal lands in the county are over #2,000,000 higher than in former years. The coal com panies interested have been notified of their rating, and September 7 is fixed as tin* date on which they will be given an opportunity to be heard in their own be half. The proceeding is similar to that in Schuylkill county of three years ago, when the valuation of coal lands in that county was increased by about #11,000,- 000. It has been a notorious fact that, com pared with other property, coal lands have been rated remarkably low. Lands that are known to have veins of coal be neath their sirrfaee over 100 feet in depth were assessed for #175 an acre. Other lands valued at #I,OOO an acre wore as sessed at #IOO an acre, and some even less. The commission engaged experts on coal valuations and they have made a revision that they think will withstand any opposition that may be brought aganist it. The following is a list of the companies affected and the increase of each: Lehigh Coal and Navigation Company, Increase #494,072. Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal Com pany, #97,318. The Lehigh Valley Coal Company. #95,257. The Lehigh Valley Railroad Company, #154.217. The New York and Lehigh Coal Com pany. #30,438. A* S. Van VYicklc & Co., #100,754. Coxo Bros. fc Co., #08,773. The Evans Mining Company, #3,000. Buy your clothes of Refowich. Shooting Affray at Ifu/.letoit. There was a family quarrel at Ilazle ton on Monday night. The victim i> Mrs. George and her assailant is her husband. Chisnull was at one time the champion live-mile runner of t lie state, and is well-known throughout the country. For several weeks he has been drinking heavily. lie went to work oil Mondry in the mines, and came home at quitting time, seemingly in good spirits. His stepson, Nick Victor, en tered the house some time afterward. It seems that Chisnell entertained some hard feelings toward the latter. After washing himself, Chisnell picked up his mining clothes and took a revolver from liis pocket, at the same time remarking that he might as well settle the matter at once and made a dash for Victor. The woman came between them at this juncture and as she did so the pis tol discharged. A second shot rang out and Mrs. Chisnell dropped to the. floor. The would-be assassin made his escape in the excitement, but surrendered him self four hours later, lie has been com mitted to the county jail. The woman was shot in the thigh, but is not danger ously wounded. Chisnell says he was drunk at the time. A Delicate Operation. From the Ha/.lcton Standard. I*. M. lfoylc, mine foreman at the llazle Mines colliery, had a delicate operation performed on Tuesday morn ing. Over three years ago. while des cending the slope at Drifton in a car, Mr. Boyle slipped, and in trying to re cover himself, his right hand came in contact with a lead pencil in his pocket. The point of the pencil, over a quarter of an inch long, entered the palm of his hand. A physician attempted to remove the point at the time, but was unable to accomplish it. Mr. Boyle suffered considerable pain during the past week and decided to ] make another effort to have the point removed. He presented his case to Dr. Gay ley, who after probing found the mischievous piece of lead and extricated it. Colliery SuHpendH 1 nilefiiiitely. The Nelson shaft, one of the largest mines in the anthracite coal fields, has shut down for an indefinite period on account of the low prices of coal, and 900 men and boys, most of whom live in West Shamokin, have been thrown out of employment. Operations will not be resumed until there is a decided increase in the selling price of coal. All of the mules have been hoisted from the mine, and all dead work lias been stopped. The colliery is operated by J. .1. Lang don & Co., of Elmira, N. Y. Father Matliew Celebration. The anniversary of the birth of Father Mat hew. tiie apostle of temperance, will be celebrated here on October 10 by the Young Men's C. T. A. B. Corps.

Iloroiißli Directors l'rovirto Experienced Instructors for Twelve Schools. All the members of the borough school board were present at the meeting held on Monday evening. The purpose of the meecting was to appoint teachers for the coming term and to transact such other business relating to the new school building as might come before 1 he board. President McCarthy appointed Messrs. Tlinony. Unto and Ferry as a committee to confer with J. I). Myers, who was given the order to furnish the seats and desks for the new schools, in regard to the amount of furniture to be purchased. It was decided that the new school building shall be known as tiie Eckley B. Coxo School, and the president was authorized to have a marble slab with the name inscribed placed on the build ing. President McCarthy stated that a cen sus of the borough recently taken for the purpose of ascertaining the number of school-going children, showed that there are over seven hundred who will attend the public schools this year. The president called attention to the necessity of providing ample accommo dations for the children, and suggested the advisability of establishing a suffi cient number of schools. Director Rutc moved to establish nine schools, but the motion failed for want of a seconder. Mr. Welsh then offered a motion to create twelve schools, which was seconded by Mr. Timony. The mo tion prevailed, all voting for it, except Mr. Bute. The board decided to award the con tract for painting the new school build ing to A. A. Bachman for #97. The appointing of teachers was then taken up, and resulted as follows: Misses Tillic Lindsay, Nellie Gillespie, Kate Timony, Bella McGill, Bid Mc- Laughlin, Kate Rogau and Mrs. S. M. Denneny; Messrs. John D. Ilerron, Ed ward F. Ilanion, George McLaughlin, John F. Mcßrierty and Win. J. Schmidt. Mr. Ilerron was elected principal of the Ridge street school and Mr. Ilanion principal of the Washington street school. Their salaries were lixed at #6O per month. Mr. Mcßrierty was assign ed to the new building, Mr. McLaugh lin to the old and Mr. Schmidt to Bir vanton. at salaries of #SO per month. The salaries of the female teachers wore lixed at #4O each per month, but no as signments were made. An eight-months' term was agreed upon. The board adjourned until this (Thurs day) evening to meet the teachers and hear their recommendations 011 text books. DRIFTON ITEMS. Somebody is playing tricks on the electric car raotormen. A few ovenings ago a suit of old underwear was filled with straw and laid across the track. As the car dashed towards the object the motorman's heart gave a jump ami lie almost upset the car by the sudden stop, not wishing to kill what 110 thought was a human being. This is somebody's idea of a joke, and goes to prove that, the foolkiller can find work here if lie calls. A large crowd of young fellows got to gether the other night and organized a drum corps for the purpose of serenad ing a young couple, whom they heard had been married on the q. t. Such was not the case, still the drum corps paraded up to the house of the supposed groom, and played some very nieo selec tions. Tho music was not a bit appre ciated by the family, and the serenade was labor lost. It would lie advisable for the fathers and mothers of town to prevent their children from promenading up and down the road between Jeddo and this place, 011 what is known as "Lovers' Lane." Tho language used in that locality by the elements which congregate there is not going to improve the morals of our rising generation. The Children of Mary Society hold a picnic over at St. Ann's church Tuesday afternoon. The happy crowd spent a pleasant day until 5.30 o'clock, when they partook of a palatable supper fur nished by the Sisters of Mercy. Miss Rose Carr returned home last evening, after spending a few weeks witii friends at the county seat. Miss Mary A. Malloy returned home 011 Saturday after a throe weeks' visit at Ilazleton. Mrs. John L. Sullivan, of Philadel phia, is the guest of Mrs. John Curran. Miss Maggie Harkins is visiting at Norristown this week. Miss Katie Gillespie is visiting friends at Mahanoy City.

It is said to lie an excellent show and leading papers are loud in their praises of it. Extensive Caveln at£Luzerne. Quito an extensive and disastrous cavein lias begun in Luzerne borough. Tho region affected is over the old Hutchison workings and in what is now tho Haddock mine, although at present tho caving part of tiie colliery is not being worked. Tho displacement is about one hundred feet in diameter and thirty feet deep, and is still settling. Five houses and lots adjoining are badh affected, three owned by John Holmes and two by S. A. Morton. Immediately after the first settling the occupants of the five houses moved out. Tho resi dents in close proximity feel very shaky and are preparing to move. The ground supporting the houses owned by.John Holmes and John l'ryde, William Harbster and Mrs. Knarr is gradually going down. Tho kitchens of all throe of the houses are torn off, and have gone down a distance of about fifty feet in a hundred feet of water. The property owned by Samuel Morton start ed to give way and in a short time the house was ail racked to pieces from tiie jar of the cracking of the ground. The people believe that the pillars have been robbed. The cave ruins some of the property and greatly depreciates that adjacent to the affected region. The loss will run ( up into the thousands. It does not af fect the operation of Haddock's mine, as the cavein is in an abandoned working. Paid a Fraternal Visit. From the Ilazleton Plain Speaker. Major C. B. Coxo Post, No. 174, G. A. It., of Freeland, paid a fraternal visit to Robinson Post, No. 20, G. A. R.. of town. 011 Tuesday evening. They came over by trolley.
