CASTOR IA For Infants and Children. HARD ON CORPORATIONS. COUNCILMEN SPOKE OUT AGAINST ALLEGED IMPOSITIONS. Refused to Pay H Bill from the Cross Creek Coal Company and Called the Electric Light Company to Time—Full Account of the All the Business Done. Monday evening last was a rough night on corporations around the bor ough council chamber. All the mem bers were present at the monthly ses sion of our local governing body, and they vied with one another in "stand ing up for the rights of the taxpayers." According to the statements made at the meeting, the Instructions given by council at previous sessions were not fulfilled, and the two alleged offenders, the Cross Creek Coal Company and the Electric Light Company, were treated in a manner which gave abundant evi dence that muzzles are not worn by the councilman of Froeland borough. In the regular batch of bills was one from the Drifton company for $46.80 for surveying the Public Park. There are times when suspicious statements of accounts are allowed to pass through, there being no proof that they are not correct, but this was not one of them. The hii 1 caused an immediate discussion, which brought forth some interesting facts. Some tlrue ago the matter of fencing the Park was taken up by the Hoard of Trade. Later, in order to learn the EXACT BOUNDARY LINES of the ground, it was decided by council to have it surveyed to conform to the lines noted in the deed, and a communi cation was sent to Superintendent Smith, of the Cross Creek Coal Company, asking that an engineer and one assist ant be sent to co-operate with the bor ough laborers in surveying and locating boundary stones. To this an answer was received, stat ing that when the company would be ready to comply the secretary of council would be noli lied. Up to Monday even ing no notification of their coining had been received by any person connected with council. However, a corps of sur veyors from Drifton have spent several days in and around the Park, but the | only signs of their work visible to the j borough are four iron stakes, which, if I they are meant to designate -the boutid j ary lines, take a slice of land 403.. x 712 feet off the Park, as originally GIVEN TO THE BOROUGH !by the late Eckley H. Coxe in 1892. For ■ doing this a bill of $46.80 was rendered Iby the Cross Creek Company—four ! men's labor of thirty-nine hours each at !30 cents an hour. The discussion terminated by reject ing the bill and appointing Councilmen Mulhearn, Rutter and Davis, with the solicitor and secretary, to wait upon Superintendent Smith in reference to the matter. The next question to arouse the mem bers was a petition from over eigiity residents, requesting that the light on Fast Main street, near the Public Park, j be allowed to remain there. It was dis cussed at great length—not the petition, but the light—and much stress was laid upon the refusal of the Electric Light Company to remove it to the corner of Luzerne and llidge streets, after in structions to that effect having been sent them. The petition was lost sight of in the discussion, also the rumor that u councilman had countermanded those instructions, and when the talk ended the council had DECIDED TO ALLOW NO PAY for that particular lamp from the Ist inst. The secretary was ordered to notify the light company of the action: also to order the West llurton street lamp changed to Hurton and Laurel streets, and to again give notice to place an in candescent light at the entrance of the lockup. While the members were in the mood, a motion was made and carried ordering the street commissioner to serve notice on the same company to remove all wires strung by them in the Park which are attached to trees, whether they are light or guide wires, with in forty-eight hours. If his instruc tions are not complied with, the street commissioner is to have them removed, by force if necessary. The selection of chief of the fire de partment was postponed, owing to the absence of the directors of ibo Citi zens' Hose Company. A resolution was passed donating SSO to defray the ex penses oT the firemen in attending the state parade at Wilkesbarre today. This was not asked for by the firemen. The committee appointed on exonera tions of dog tax reported in favor of al lowing no exonerations UNLESS TJIE PERSON TAXED produces a certificate from the assessor, to the effect that the assessment was an error. Burgess Gallagher's report for Sep tember was: Receipts, $21.70; commis sions and fees, $12.80. Police expense: J. J. Kennedy, $3.25: John Mollk, $1.25; D. J. Boyle, $2; J. P.

Jacob Sosnowski and John E. Mellugh were appointed as members of the Hoard of Health. The ordinance taxing poles, wires, cars and water mains was read for the first time, then laid over for further consideration. Special School Hoard Meeting;. The borough school board met Tues day evening in special session with Messrs. Schaub, Johnson, Sweeney and Timony. present. The object was to release the bondsmen of ex-Treasurer Ferry—John M. Powell. Morris Ferry and John Arnold. A resolution was adopted releasing them and that the bond be withdrawn at Wilkesbarre. A statement was read from Harry Jacobs, of Hazleton, showing that Mr. Arnold was worth $45,000 over his property at tin? corner of Mill and Chest nut streets. Hazleton, which is included on the bond of Treasurer Timony. Mr. Arnold desired to substitute some of his other property for the above, which is the brewery, in order to have that clear of all liens. A resolution authorizing the change to bo made was passed. E. I'. Kisuer, of Hazleton, represented Mr. Arnold at the meeting, and with the secretary arranged the necessary papers. It was decided to postpone the regular meeting until Saturday evening. "Side-Trucked" on Tuesday Evening. Large and appreciative audiences are witnessing the production of that sen sational drama, •Side-Tracked,"" which will be the attraction at the Grand Tues day evening. Its startling denouements and mirth-provoking situations evoke rapturous applause. The company is a strong one in every particular, and the members appear thoroughly at ease in their various characters. The special ties, consisting of up-to-date songs, duets, trios, choruses and dances, are given in a very capable manner. The principal figure in the drama is a tramp, through whoso persistent efforts a mys terious crime is cleared up. This char acter is assumed by 10. 11. O'Connor, who is deserving of much praise for his per formance. He is a clever singer and dancer, and is to be commended for overcoming the perceptible temptation to buffoonery. Several other artists ap pear to advantage in their different characters. There is more catarrh in this section of the country than all other diseases put together, and until the last few years was supposed to be incurable. Fur a great many years doctors pro nounced it a local disease, and prescrib ed local remedies, and by constantly failing to cure with local treatment, pro nounced it incurable. Science has proven catarrh to bo a constitutional disease and therefore requires constitu tional treatment. Ha l's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the onlv constitutional cure on the market. It is taken in ternally in doses from ten drops to a teaspoonful.

Outlook for u Large I'.emonHtralion at Huzletou Is Not Knoouragiiig. That the parade of temperance socie ties in llazleton on Monday is destined to be somewhat disappointing in num bers is shown by the following, taken from the the Seranton Index, which \> edited by James F. Judge, ex-president of the union which lias voted to parade in llazleton: "The outlook for the success of the llazleton parade on October 11 is cer tainly not encouraging. It will be a serious disappointment to the Fathei Mathevv men of lower Luzerne county if I lie societies throughout the diocese fail to participate in the annual parade, us the representatives of the various societies agreed upon, in union conven tion at Nanticoke last May. "According to reports St. Leo's J tat - taliou, of this city, is the only organiza tion north of Wilkesbarre that has voter: to go to liazletftri, and it is probable that that organization will rescind its action. The societies at Wilkesbarre, Nanticoke. Plymouth and of other towns in the Third district are not very enthusiastic on the subject; their taking part in the parade at llazleton this year is very doubtful. "The First district societies voted on last Sunday that, instead of •going to llazleton, they celebrate the day at Car boudale, and on Sunday evening prev ious to the parade a rally and entertain ment will be held. "The llazleton people will be sorely aggrieved at the action of those societies whose delegates in convention voted llazleton the parade and now decide to parade or remain at home. It is not fair treatment, and if the Index be not greatly mistaken the effects of the dis appointment to tiie llazleton societies will result disastrously to the Diocesan C. T. A. Union." CHURCH CHIMES. The Wilkesbarre conference of the Lutheran ministerium met at Hobble this week. The election of officers re sulted as follows: Rev. L. Lindeustruth, president: Uev. .1. .1. Kuntz, English secretary, and Uev. .1. W. Randolph. German secretary. At St. Paul's P.

Organizers Fahy and Richards formed a branch of the Mine Workers here on Tuesday night. The meeting was held in Foster school house and forty-eight members were enrolled. The society will have a large membership in a short while. William Silk's cow. which was adver tised as lost in the TIUHUNK, was found dead yesterday near No. 3 slope. The cause of the animal's death could not be told, but It was probably struck by an engine and walked to the spot where it died.

The date of the hall to bo given next month by the lvosculsko Guards at Valine* opera house will not be Thanks giving Eve, as was lately announced. The Jeddo Progressive Club has this date and will hold its annual ball then. An error in Mr. Valines' date book caused him to consider the night vacant; instead, the house lias been engaged by the Jeddo boys since last Thanksgiving j Deputy Attorney General Render has decided that county commissioners shall Insist on employers of alien labor collect- ; ing the tax of 3 cents per diem from all such employes. Mr. Ileoder will not accept the recent adverse decision until j it is sustained by the court of lust resort. \ Employers hereabouts have ceased col lecting the tax. Celebrated Their Anniversary. The members of the Citizens' Hose Company celebrated the thirteenth an niversary of the organization by holding i banquet at Frank Ebons' hotel last evening. Forty-five members of the '.oinpany and the council participated. Ifter disposing of the best the season iffords, a number of addresses were de livered by the newly elected officers and ithers, and a spirit of enthusiasm in the company's work was developed. The organization is at present in good condi tion. Previous to the banquet the regular monthly session was held at the fire rooms. The question of accepting the ionation of SSO made by the council on Monday evening, to pay the expenses of \ x delegation at Wilkesbarre today, was settled by tendering a veto of thanks for ; the money but refusing tu accept the i sum for the purpose stated. The mem bers are willing to accept the donation and buy additional equipments which are badly needed at fires, but will not i spend a cent of borough money for other than legitimate purposes. The new officers, as published in the I TRIIH'N'K a mouth ago, wore formally ■ elected, and the vacancies in the board of directors were filled by choosing \V. ; J. Timney, Edward O'Donnoll and Roger j McNeils. These, with the six council- ! men, will select a chief for the (ire do- j partment. Death of John McXulty. John McNulty, a resident of town for 1 the past ten -years, died on Monday I afternoon at his homo in South Heber- j ton after an illness of one month. The j deceased had been in feeble health for j several months, but lately lie gave signs of growing stronger and it was thought he would survive his last illness. Con sequently his death was a surprise to his friends, and of these he had many, his long residence in the region having won for Mm the esteem of all his acquaint ances. He is survived by bis wife and the following grown-up sons and daugh ters: Daniel, of Carbondale; Patrick, of Silver Brook; Andrew, of Freeland; Mrs. John Ward, of Silver Brook; Misses Sophia, Bridget and Rose, of Philadelphia.
