S.T.rnt of tlie Accu.pd H,re Kern Dltt- Gh.rßed on Motion of tlio Ill.trlot Attorney, Thero Being no Kvidence A£ulQttt Thero— Tbo Jury Selected. The trial of Sheriff James Martin and seventjr-eight men who were sworn in as deputies, charged with shooting and kilting eighteen men and wounding thlrty-livo others at Lauimer 011 Sep tember 10, 1897, began on Tuesday in the courts of this county. The brutal crime which these men have to answer, by the nature of the circumstances sur rounding it, has obtained nut only a national reputation, but has gone across the seas and found a place on theachlves of foreign countries. Newspaper read ers the world over know the details of the Lattlmer massacre, hence their re petition is unnecessary now. The case promises to be one of the most interesting ever tried In Luzerne courts. District Attorney T. R. Martin is conducting the prosecutiori, assisted by James Scarlet, of Danville, one of the leading criminal attorneys of the slate; ox-District Attorney John McGahren, 1 ex-District Attorney and Democratic State Chairman John M. Garman, of Nanticoke; E. F. McGovern, of Wilkes barro, and P. F. Laughran, of Hazleton. John T. Lonahan, one of the most emi nent criminal attorneys In the stale, is the chief counsel for the defendants, assisted by ex-Attorney General 11. W. Palmer. George S. Ferris. F. W. Whea ton and George If. Troutman. There are many questions of import ance which will be settled at this trial, chief among them the question to what extent citizens can use the public high way with demonstrative attempt without being considered riotous. There will, too, in somo measure he settled the question of whether the Austrian, Italian and German govern ments have ground for a claim for dam ages, citizens of those countries being among the killed and wounded. Extreme interest Is manifested in the case throughout this county, and the corridors of the court house are daily thronged long before the doors of the court room open. When the trial began on Tuesday morning, with President Judge Stanley Woodward on the bench, the first move ol District Attorney Martin was an un expected one. lie moved for a nolle prosequie in the case against Leonard Habcock, Wallace Drum, John Dough erty, John J. Gallagher, William Mul hall, Fred A. Sleppy, William Costello. William Seiwell, Calvin Pardee, Jr., John W. Crooks, Jr., R. C. Warriner, Thomas A. Harris, Samuel Erinold and Craig Anderson. He explained that these deputies had not been present at the scene of the shooting, and thorefore the commonwealth would not ask that they be held under indictment. It is supposed they were in the vicinity ol Lattfmer store, guarding that establish ment, when the foreigners were shot. Att.ornov Lenahan objected vigorously to this, declaring the deputies hud a right to demand a trial by jury, that the stigma of guilt might be fully removed from them. After argument the court granted Mr. Martin's motion. Samuel J. Gundry, another deputy, was also given a nolle pros. 011 motion of Attorney' Wheaton, for the defense, who said the. man's wlfu was dying. Each deputy answered to his name when called and stood aside. The fol lowing names on the list did not answer: George E. Ruble, who is unknown; Harry Dehl, who disappeared after the shooting and may be running vet; Thomas Brown, not present. Later Brown appeared. Contrary to general expectation, there was no argmuont regarding the question of trying the defendants altogether or separate, the defense agreeing to the state's proposal to try them as a whole. The jurors were then called for ex amination, and out of over forty examin ed all but seven were rejected, having formed opinions regarding the prisoners' guilt. The seven accepted were; Eli Weaver, laborer, Hunlock township; C. R. Shaw, carpenter, Ross township; Aaron Foliman, ropomaker.Wilkesbarre; Alfred Stevens, clerk, Wilkosbarre; A. If. Shields, carpenter, WHkesbarre; Her man Crcggory, farmer, Huntington township, and Adam Larvon, tinsmith. Sugar Loaf township. Among the jurors was A. W. Wash burn, of Freeland, who was challenged for cause, on the gronnd that he had recently been employed by somo of the defendants, lie was stood aside until yesterday, when lie was accepted by both sides after the entire panel of sixty jurors had been examined. Mr. Wash burn was the twelfth juror chosen. Yesterday morning the first juror chosen was C. C. Ransom, a contractor of Plymouth. This made eight jurors. The ninth was It. M. Rood, a farmer of Ross township; the tenth was Jonas Oxrlder, a carpenter of Sugarloaf town ship; the eleventh was H. M. Wolfe, a farmer of Ross township, and Mr. Wash burn was twelfth. After the jury box was filled court adjourned until ibis morning. FREELAND, PA., THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1898. BRIEF ITEMS. The machinery Is being placed in position in the new silk mill at Pittston.

A new feature in the Hanks town ship, Carbon county, auditing case was the swearing out of warrants on Tues day by E. A. Oborrender, of Drifton, for the arrest of three school directors of the township, Stephen Farrow and Philip Ferry, of Heaver Meadow, and George W. Koons, of Audcnried. The charges are of misdemeanor in office, the directors being surcharged some time ago to the amount of nearly SIO,OOO by the board of auditors. Farrow and Koons furnished hail in the amount of $1,500 each, but Ferry could not be found. The directors will be given a hearing beforo Squire Boyle, of Mauch Chunk, tomorrow.

PoafiieHH Caunol be (lured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one wav to cure deafness, and that is by cored itutionnl remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed con dition of the mucous lining of the eustachian tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is entire ly closed deafness is the result, and un less the inflamation can be taken out and tins tube restored to its normal con dition, hearing will he destroyed for ever; nine cases out of ten are caused by catnrrah, which is nothing but an in flamed condition of the mucous surfaces.

Routine liuxlus Transacted at Last Evening's Session, All the members of the borough school board were present at the regular meet ing last evening, except Director John sun. The following bills were ordered paid: American Book Company, books, $9.00; E. 11. Butler & Co., books, $30.44; Ginn fc Co., books, $9.17; A. S. Barnes & Co., books, $10.80; Cross Creek Coal Com pany, coal, S3O; A. 11. Freas, hauling coal, sl3; TRIBUNE, advertising, $1.53. A bill from A. A. Bachman, painting, SB, was laid oVer. The president voted against the TRIBUNE'S bill because the price was 30 cents higher than the amount for which another paper had agreed to publish the same advertise ment. It passed by a vote of 4to 1. The secretary reported that ho had engaged Mrs. Donlin to clean Birvanton outhouse. A motion to pay her $2 for the work failed to receive the votes of a majority of the board', and the matter was laid over until she sends in a bill. Principal E. F. Ilanion reported that ho had placed Miss Katie Winter in charge of the room taught by Miss Dougherty for one-half day, also for the same length of time in Miss Herron's room. This was done rather than send the pupils home during the teachers' illness. The board did not take any action on the report. The president thought the principal had exceeded his powers in engaging the substitute teacher. The statement of the bonded indebted ness was read and ordered copied in the minute book. The secretary was instructed to pur chase two dozen Hull's arithmetics for I the primary grade in the Daniel Coxe school. The president reported as a committee i on placing urinals in the buildings that he had a hid from a local plumber to ; place slate urinals of four stalls for the | Daniel Coxe school, and two stalls for the E. B. Coxe school, with necessary | fixtures, for $54. It was decided to ! place slate urinals, they being more suitable than any other, and the secre tary was authorized to receive bids from other local plumbers on the same. Mut Send Children to School. J. li. Clark, of Wilkosbarre, was ar rested for not sending his sons, William and James, aged 10 and 12 years respec tively, to school. He claimed that the hoys were incorrigible and played truant, but Alderman Donohuc, before whom the case was brought, fined (.'lark $5.10 and ordered him to send the boys to the House of Refuge if they still refused to attend school. This is the first prosecution under the new compulsory school law, which pro vides that all children' between the ages , of 8 and Hi years shall attend school at least 70 per cent of the term, except those between the ages of 13 and 10 years who are employed at some useful work. SnlndlerH l'laced in Jail. A. L. Spencer and Thomas Aubrey, of ! Scranton, convicted on June 30 last of conspirary to defraud W. B. Koons, of Audcnried, were delivered on Monday into the custody of Warden Boland. according to the decision reached by the superior court. The caso won a wide notoriety from the standing of the parties involved and the territory covered by the operations of the conspirators. The defendents were sentenced to undergo imprisonment in the county jail for one year and pay a fine and costs. Pending a disposition of the case in superior court the defendents wore at large, having furnished bail. Freeland Woman Mnrried. From the Hazleton Standard. In the admiring presence of a large circle of friends, Emory Lahr, a prog ressive young business man of McAdoo, was happily united in marriage to Mrs. Straneski, a respected lady of Freeland, who conducts a thriving business in that borough. The ceremony which united the loving twain was performed by Rev. Stas at 8 a. ra. Tuesday, followed by a grand dinner and reception at the home of the bride. The groom has had ar rangements complete for somo time by which he will succeed James J. Breunan as proprietor of the Pottsville House, McAdoo. Died Away from Home. From the Hazleton Sentinel. Miss Sadie Maloney. aged 21 years, daughter of John Malouey, of Oneida, died in Mauch Chunk on Tuesday, where she was visiting a relative. The cause of death was appendicitis. She. had been ill only a few days. The body arrived in Hazleton yesterday morning and was taken to the home of her father on the I). S. &S.

Watch the date on your paper. POLITICAL PICKUPS. Edwin F. Warner, of Weatherly. Democratic candidate for poor director, paid a visit to town on Tuesday, accom i panied by Percy E. Faust, editor of the Weatherly Herald. Mr. Warner is one of the most prominent merchants of his town, has a thorough knowledge of the poor district and is just the sort of man needed bv the taxpayers to manage the big institution at Laurytown. lie served twelve years on Weatherly coun cil and has taken a leading part in the building up of that enterprising borough. The candidate is engaged in the furniture business, not a seller of groceries and provisions, as some of his unscrupulous enemies allege. The nomination came to hint unsolicited, but since the party has seen lit to make him its candidate he is making a vigorous fight for election. James M. Ktauffor. burgess, and J. Williams, tax collector, of Heaver Meadow, have been appointed by the court of Carbon county to continue in ofiice until the regular spring election in 1900. At a special election last June, Messrs. Htauffer and Williams were elected to oflico, but this is not in accordance with the act of the legisla ture, as these offices, under the condi tions then existing, are appointive o&iees. The politicians of all parties in Foster concede that nothing but wholesale treachery in Democratic ranks can defeat the Democratic ticket. The strife among the Republicans insures the election of every candidate, and if any other result prevails some men in Foster should cease to be Democratic leaders. Four of the five wards in Freeland borough are expected to give majorities for all the Democratic candidates in these wards and more than half the ticket will pull through in the other ward. The Republicans have renewed the dis sensions of a year ago and are sharpen ing their knives for one another. About twenty-five people were at Wilkesbarro on Monday in connection with the contest to determine which faction of the Republicans in Foster is entitled to the party column. The case was not called, and the witnesses and others interested.were notified to appeal again on Saturday. The nomination of two Republicans for school directors at large, upon the advice of a Democrat, and then the withdrawal of their names from the ticket, upon the advice of other Demo crats. has disgusted Republicans with the party leadership in Freeland. Joint Cudish, of Beaver Brook, has been placed on the llazle township Democratic ticket to fill the vacancv caused by the withdrawal of Frank Fisher, candidate for treasurer. PERSONALITIES. Miss Maggie llerron, of town, who entered Carbondale convent last sum mer, took the white veil yesterday. The ceremony was witnessed by her father, John Herron, and her sister, Miss Bridget, and Misses Bid McGeehan and Mary Ferry, of town.
