SCHOOL BOARD MEETING. DIRECTORS RE-ELECT D. J. M'CARTHY TO FILL THE VACANCY. Several Subjects of Importance Acted Upon at Monday Kvenlng'* Sexslon. John J. Mcßrierty Chosen an a Substi tute Teacher—All the Proceeding*. A meeting of the borough school board was called so suddenly on Monday that very few people knew the directors were in session, and a performance, the like of which has not been seen here for many a day, was consequently missed by all but a few citizens. The meeting was called for 7 o'clock, and all of the five directors, except Mr. Schaub, were present at the specified time. After a half hour's wait the absenteo appeared, and immediately was chosen president pro tern. Secretary Sweeney then arose and delivered a most pathetic speech. He likened the board, in its condition at that time, to a headless body, fluttering and floundering about. Ho lamented tho fact that It had lost its head by the resignation of D. J. McCarthy, and im plored tho members to choose as his suc cessor one so good. Director Timony nominated D. J. Mc- Carthy to fill tho vacancy caused by the resignation of I). J. McCarthy. Direc tor Ferry nominated Georgo McGee. Tho result of the ballot was: For McCarthy, Timony, Sweeney and John son. For McGee, Ferry and Schaub. Tho former was declared elected. Direc tor Timony was given a written notifica tion and sent to escort tho newly-elected member to the mooting. One of the directors wanted to go on with the business, but tho secretary ob jected and nothing was done until the return of Mr. Timony. During this lull in the meeting Mr. Schaub took occas sioq to converse with tho TRIBUNE rep resentative in reference to tho published account of the previous session. Before the director had time to explain himself, the secretary excitedly broke in with a request to Director Johnson to say he was misquoted in this paper on the tab let question. Mr. Johnson replied that he "didn't know there was to be a slab in the building." With this, the third rebuff to his efforts to have Mr. Johnson contradict his private and public state ments, the secretary subsided, after un burdening himself of his opinion of Director Ferry, tho TRIBUNE, tho tablet and all who have questioned his unenvi able position on tho subject. By this time Mr. Timony returned with Mr. McCarthy. Assuming a look of Intense astonishment, the new direc tor informed the board that "thin knocks the wind out of me. Does the board desiro that I shall still act with It? Then, if it is their desire, I shall ac quiesce." This was followed by his re election as president. A bill for 52.25 from B. F. Rute for straightening flag-polo on E. B. Coxe school was ordered paid. The secretary was instructed to consult William Wil liamson regarding a bill which tho lat ter presented. It was agreed that when tho architect and contractor admit that the new building is not according to tho plans and specifications, and when Mr. Riebe deducts from his bl'.l the charge of 341.25 for extra masonry, the building will bo accepted. Tho sum of 31,500 was ordered paid to Contractor Riebe as part of the balanco of W |BC|I iji d'ip w|ep building is com pletod. The teachers wore instructed to at tend county institute. Tboy will receive 310 each for the same. After figuring on the rosources and current expenses, tho president and secretary estimated that the school term will consist of about seven months, from the urcsent outlook of the condition of the district. A 10x15 foot ilag received by tho sce cretary was ordered returned for an Bxl2, which was considered largo enough. The president reported that Mr. Zim merman had been ill for some time and his school was closed, also suggesting that tho board appoint a substitute teacher for occasions of the kind. John J. Mcßrierty and Miss Katie Winters were placed in nomination. The first ballot resulted. Mr. Mcßrierty, Mc- Carthy, Sweeney and Timony. Miss Winters, Ferry, Schaub and Johnson. There being no choice, another ballot was taken. This resulted in the elec tion of Mr. Mcßrierty as follows: Mr. Mcßrierty, McCarthy, Sweeney, Timony and Johnson. Miss Winters, Ferry and Schaub. A motion that he receive the salary of tho teacher whose place he fills brought a pyptost from Ferry, who claiiped that as Mr, was an old teacher of the district t/jgt they should pay him at the rate of his prev ious salary. JJje motion carried. By motion of My, JMinony it was agreed to rescind Saturday flight's motion authorizing the teachers to hold iustitflte t-wice a month and receive their pay at the ttaufl) f)mo. This was the motion which caused the prpijdent and secretary to resign after its passage on Saturday evening. A mvtjon that the president and sec- FREELAND, PA., THURSDAY, OCTOBER 14, 1897. rotary vote before the other directors, to avoid the trouble of rescinding busi ness which does not please these offi cials, was made by Director Ferry.. It was declared out of order. The question of procuring coal for the schools showed a variance of opinion. Schaub and Ferry favored advertising for bids. The former added that the board should patronize home industries, and suggested trying Schwabe's coal. The secretary promptly informed him that "we will not buy Schwabe's coal, we will get Drifton coal." lie further stated that Schaub would not burn Schwabe's coal in his own home. This was immediately refuted by Schaub, who said ho does burn it and gets satis faction. The board decided to buy Drifton coal and to pay 50 cents a ton for hauling. Jennings Marries Tonight. This evening at 8 o'clock will bo cele brated tho wedding ot Hugh Jennings, the Baltimore short stop and popular ball player, and Miss Elizabeth Dixon, of Avoca. The event will take place at Avoca and the couple will be united by Rev. Father Dixon, of I'ittston, a broth er of the bride. The reception will fol low at her home and will be attended by immediate friends only. The invita tions are to the church and there a large number will be present.

Ho has put his time to good advantage in tho winter months by attending college. Tho entire coal region takes pride in Hugh Jennings and wishes success to himself and bride. A Knotty Problem Solvetl. A petition for an appeal from the suporlor court decree reversing the lower court In refusing Jeremiah G. Donogbue a liquor liconso at Philadel phia was refused by the supreme court on Monday and the petition dismissed. Donoghuo was granted a license one year ago by filing a stipulation with tho court, in which he pledged hiinsolf, "In consideration of license being granted me for the year to Juno 1, 1897, not to make application for a renewal of said license for the above property." In spite of the foregoing, ho duly ap peared in court a year later. The stipu lation was Hashed beforo him. Tho court observed the pledge and refused him a license. The superior held that tho lower court in the first place had no right to malto such terms with appli cants. By their action tho supreme court upholds the superior court, and solves a knotty problem In liconso court matters. There is more catarrh in this section of the conntry than all other diseases put together, ami until the last few years was supposed to be incurable. For a great many years doctors pro nounceM it a local disease, and prescrib ed local remedies, anil by constantly failing to cure with local treatment, pro nounced it incurable. Science has proven catarrh to be a constitutional disease and therefore requires constitu tional treatment. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitutional cure on the market. It is taken in ternally In doseti front ten drops to a teaspoonful. It acts directly on the blood and mncons surfaces of the sys tem. They offer one hundred dollars for any case it fails to cure. Send for Circulars and testimonials. Address. F. J.

Vance's big new produc tion, "Patent Appliod For," is a realistic ship scone where the vessel, "The Savannah," encounters a fearful gale just as she clears from tho city, in whose honor she is named. The big ship Is tossed on tho crest of the giant waves, tho sails are torn to shreds by the whistl ing winds, and it is decidedly wierd in its vivid realism. The wind Is produced by a Sturtovant blower, of 5,000 pounds prossuro, worked by a ten horse-power engine. It is certainly a wonderful scene. At the Grand opera house, Sat urday, October 16.

The Democratic Candidate for Protliono tary In Worthy at Support. Paul Dasch, of Upper Lehigh, is the Democratic candidate for prothonotary, aud he asks the people of Luzerne coun ty to elect him. Mr. Dasch is a gentle men in all that the word implies. Porn of poor but honest German parents in South Wilkesbarre, no man ever strug gled for a livelihood more than he. Mr. Dasch first began life picking slate in the old Lance breaker, now No. 11, of the Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal Com pany, at Plymouth. There are hun dreds of men in Plymouth today who can testify to the above. Not only has he picked slat*, but ho has held every position in and about a breaker. lie was also a Western Union messenger boy in Wilkesbarre, from which he rose step by step until he became a telegraph operator. Later he learned book-keep ing and became an expert in the busi- PAUL DABCII. ness. Until recently he was employed in this capacity by the Upper Lehigh Coal Company, but resigned some time ago witli the intention of locating in an other part of the state. Friends, how ever. prevailed upon him to remain here and become the candidate for prothono tary. In the interest of the party he acceded to their wishes, and this manly sacrifice alone entitles him to the united support of the Democracy of Luzerne county. Of his personal characteristics, it is unnecessary for the TIIIBUNE to speak of them. He is known so well to the voters of the lower end, regardless of party lines, that he numbers his friends by the thousands in this vicinity, and those who know him best regard him the highest. His vote should [and by all appoarances will be one of the largest a lower end nomineo of either party has over received. A vote for Mr. Dasch means a vote for honesty and ability, two important qualifications which every candidate for public office should possess. PERSONALITIES.
