President McCarthy Resigned as a Mem ber and Director Sweeney tjult as Sec retary— Roard Rofused to Accept the New Building—The False Tablet, Etc. What was probably the liveliest ses sion ever held by Freeland school board took place Saturday evening. There was a full attendence of the members, and every question taken up for consid eration during the evening was discuss ed before action was taken. More or less friction was noticeable from the start, and before the session was con cluded President McCarthy's resignation as a member of the board and Director Sweeney's resignation as secretary were read. The to accept tlje same did not have a majority vote, neverthe less the president lias declared that his connection with the board is ended. The reading of the minutes of the special meeting on September 25 brought a protest from the president. lie claim ed that he withdrew his vote at that meeting for Myron Zimmerman as teacher and declared that ballot void. The secretary contended that the presi dent did not withdraw his vote, that he simply stated that if ho had seen the certilicato before voting ho would cer tainly not vote as he did. The minutes were then approved OVER THE PRESIDENT'S PROTEST. The regular order of business was suspended to take up the question of settlement of the new building with the architect and contractor. A motion was made by Directors Ferry and John son to accept the building from Mr. Riebe, the architect having given him a certificate that all work was complete and satisfactory. After the president misconstrued the motion, and his atten tion being called to it by the maker, he refused to accept It unless put in writing. This Mr. Ferry refused to do. Two motions were then put and lost, one to pay Mr. Riebe $1,200 and the architects S2OO on account, and another to lay the final settlement over until a future time. A bill for extra masonary done by the contractor and sanctioned by the archi tect, for s4l, was also laid over. Ferry's motion TO ACCEPT THE BUILDING as above was then presented in writing and accepted. It faijed to carry, Ferry, Johnson and Schaub voting for it and McCarthy, Sweeney and Tltnony against. These bills were ordered paid: Win. Williamson, supplies, $2.35; Freeland Lumber 'Company,- 81; M. Halpin, door latch, 30c; J. P. Gorman, pens, 90c; Plain Speaker, publishing notice, 90c; L. V. R. R., freight. $45.55; Win. William son, lamp and oil, $2.49; American Rook Company, books, $9.00; E. 11. Rutler, books, $53.28; Kress Stationery Com pany, supplies, $47.38; Leach, Shewell & Sanborn, books, $11.25; American Rook Company, books, $9.15; E. 11. Rut ler, books, $03.84; H. Riebe, laying pavement, ssl; Henry Fisher, labor, $10.50; 11. F. Doubt and C. F. Kocher, labor, $0: Daniel Filler, $7: Joseph Sen senbach and James Bell, labor, $7.40; Wm. Rirkbeck, 00c; Isaac Johnson, hauling, $3; Matthew Johnson, labor, $2.40; 11. G. Deppc, labor, $3.04. A bill from Wm. Rirkbeck for sls was laid over. A petition from the residents of old South Heberton, PRAYING FOR A TEACIIEU, with signers representing over fifty pupils, was read. No action was taken. The salary of Geo. McLaughlin, princi pal of the E. R. Coxo School, was in creased from SSO to $55 per month. Di rector Schaub was Instructed to look after repairs on South Heberton school. A motion made by Director Ferry, that local institute be held semi-monthly by the teachers and they be paid at the same lime, was carried, only the presi dent and secretary voting against It. Roth officials protested against the extra work semi-monthly payments would re quire on their part, and the resignation of each was hurriedly written. Mr. Sweeney was first to finish and READ HIS RESIGNATION as secretary. A motion to accept it was promptly made by Director Ferry, and on roll-call the vote was: To ac cept, McCarthy. Sweeney and Ferry; against, Johnson, Timony and Schaub. The president then tendered his resig nation as a member of the board from the North ward, which, ho stated, would take effect after the meeting whether accepted or not. Ferry's motion to accept it apparently did not have a majority; the president, however, de clared it carried. Contractor Riebe desired to know if there was anything the board desired him to do before accepting the building; that if there was anything yet to be dono he would like to know what It was so as to do it this week, as ho would be busy hereafter. Tho board informod hi in that INSTEAD OF GROUND GLASS having beon placed In thy basement tho contract called for another quality. Architect Davey stated the glass now in CowMflWV.d on Fourth Page. FREELAND, PA., MONDAY, OCTOBER 11, 1897. A Coin|>)Hint from Freehand. From Saturday's Philadelphia Inquirer. Tb e Inquirer acknowledges the receipt of a communication from a correspon dent at Freeland, Pa., in which the names of certain coal operators who violate both the semi-monthly pay law and the act prohibiting company stores are given, and in which it is alleged that "the men are compelled to deal in the company's store and that they have to sign a contract to enable them to draw the store account before they get their money." It is also alleged that the abolition of those stores would be a great benefit to legitimate storekeepers and to the towns in which they and the miners live. Unfortunately, the corres pondent failed to attach his name to the communication, and hence it cannot be used. The general conditions therein described, however, are those with which the Inquirer has made the state at large acquainted, even to the fact that men who do not deal with such stores are dis charged for that cause or no cause at all. It would seem as if the attorney gen eral of Pennsylvania could not fail to to make out a score of cases against the people who, in the soft and hard coal regions and even in the slate fields, thus deliberately violate the law. Breaker Employed on Strike. The Lehigh and Wilkesbarre employes on the South Side were given their checks on Friday, but when the breaker hands found that they had been granted less than what they claimed they were promised at the time of the settlement of the recent strike they refused to work. They say that if the officials offer no satisfactory explanation and give them no advance the 2,500 men of this company who were out during the late difficulty will again be idle. The Honey Hrook breaker hands wore the first to strike. As soon as they dis covered that the expected advance had not been granted they left their places. Superintendent Gomer Jones prevailed upon them to go back, and after some persuasion they did so upon being as sured that the superintendent would set tle with the grievance committee. The breaker employes at Audenried marched to Ilooncy Hrook in the after noon and were joined by the latter. Failed to Fix (he Guilt. A preliminary hearing as to the charges brought by Schuylkill county commissioners against Philip J. Council, a former chief clerk, wherein they allege he is guilty of forgery and embezzlement of ®5,000 which was missed from the office and cannot be accounted for, was heard on Friday evening before Alder man J. 11. Fistor. It is alleged that Council falsified the minutes and took ont a temporary loan on the Safe De posit Hank for 53,000, whereas the com missioners only authorized a loan of $2,500. Connell, who mysteriously dis appeared about four weeks ago, has not been located and was not present at the hearing. The result of the hearing fixed the guilt upon no one. Terrible Death of Two Brothers. Two brothers, Louis and Leone Ceol, miners employed in the Evans colliery, Heaver Meadow, were found dead Thurs day morning in the chamber in which they were engaged. The men were working night shift, and it seems they were overcome by bad air shortly after entering. One body lay face down ward, while the other was in a kneeling pos ture at his side with hands clutching his clothing, as though he had been en deavoring to drag him to a place of safety when he, too, was overcome. The brothers were 413 and 28 years respectively and unmarried. Kx-Congrt)HHinuti Aininerman Dead.

Olsho and family, after a residence In Freeland of live years, removed on Friday to Pottsville, where the business has been reopened In a large store-room on tho principal thoroughfare of the town. This change in location was made necossary by the inability of Mr. Olsho to secure quarters here largo enough to satisfy his increasing trade. If this could have been done he would have remained in Freeland, but after falling to find a location which would incut all requirements ho sought olse where. In Pottsville ho is well locatod, and it is safe to predict that In a few years the fame of Ills hat store will ho as favorably known in Schuylkill county as it is now in lower Luzerne. By his removal Freeland has lost one of its honest, upright business men, and many expressions of regret have been heard from the numerous friends he made during his stay in this town. With tho aid of Ids son, Sidney, assisted by judicious advertising, he built up a trade which was not surpassed by any Freeland dealer in the same line, aipi by his thor-, ough business qualities and honest deaL iqgs lie commanded the rospectof all who became his patrons. He carried with him the wislios of the town for success in his Schuylkill field. DEATHS. Carr.—At Freeland, October 9, of cholera infantum, Hachel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter 11.

Tract of Lund in Lacknwanna County Was Maile to Show it Vein of Ten Feet of Anthracite Under It* Surface—The Trick Explained in Court. The "salting" of a mine has always been considered an industry peculiar to the enterprising West, says the Scran ton Truth. That the West does not monopolize all such works of genius seems to be the inference from a declara tion tiled in a suit brought in Lacka wanna court by Charles L. Ilawley, Esq.. attorney for William W. Watkins, as signed to Edward J. Williams, and Ed ward Williams in bis own right, against the estate of William Moore, deceased, late of Providence. The plaintiff claims 83,000 with interest from January 18, 1805. The declaration tiled In the case sets forth that about the first of April, 1880. William Moore, who owned 130 acres of the Sandy McLean tract in Blakely, which ho desired to sell, agreed to sell to Watkins & Williams the tract, provid ed they should test the coal under the land. They claim to have spent 80,000 in boring for coal. They claim that Moore agreed to pay them 83,000 to re imburse them for their losses In boring. After the expiration of the above mentioned agreement of opinion, Moore mndo a deed of the lands to John 11. Follows, Edward J. Watkins, William W. Watkins and 11. J. ltrennan. The consideration named in the deed was 835,000. The purchasers gave a mort gage of 820,000 restricted in its collec tion to this tract of land. The declaration sets forth that prior to the making of the deed William Moore, with the connivance of an em ploye of said Watkins & Williams but without the knowledge, at that time, of said Watkins and Williams, had caused to put into the case barrel of the drilling machine, with which such boring and testing was being done, about ten feet of coal core taken from another tract of land, remote from the land herein described, thus creating the belief on the part of Claranco R. Simpson, Thomas 11. Watkins and Wil liam C. Park, who had intended to pur chase it if the land proved to contain coal, "that the land here described was underlaid with about ten feet of coal." It is said that at the time the test hole was put down the intending purchase s had a man watch the drillers, but while the attention of the unsophisticated coal export was drawn aside, with theslolght of-hand dexterity of the drillers, the coal core was slid into the boring machine. Then operations were resum ed and the vigilant Inspector resumed his position watching the drill work. The drillers suspected the machine was going through coal. Water was put down and pumped up and It came up as black as the subterranean night from whence it came. The heart of the in spectors bounded, for surely here was coal. 110 had them examine the bor ings, and to the surpise of all there came cut borings of ten feet of coal. The declaration sets forth that Wat kins and Williams, in payment of the moneys expended for borings, "agreed to accept the sum of 83,000 as soon as Moore should get his money on the 830.000 mortgage above referred to, the collection of such being dependent upon the failure of the parties who were to pay toe same to discover, previous to the payment thereof, the substitution of said ten feet of coal core." January 18, 1805, Moore was paid in full amount of said mortgage. William W. Watkins assigned his share to Ed ward J. Williams. Williams has not yet received his cash. Hence the suit. Messrs. Simpson Watkins and Parke now own the land. Thore is more catarrh in this section of the country than ail other diseases put together, and until the last few years was supposed to be incurable.
