Hart, the Tailor, Will Remain Hera. Hart, the English tailor, has been un able to secure a suitable location in thai suction of Philadelphia to which he in tended to remove, and after giving the matter due consideration he has finally decided to make Freeland his home. Notwithstanding the fact that prepara tions were being made by himself and family to leave here, Mr. Hart's busi ness htM|)ecn steadily increasing during the winter months, and this encourag ing sign of the confidence in him of the people of Freeland went a great ways in causing him to decide to become a permanent resident of our town. That tiiis decision will bo welcome news to the people of the North Side may bo de pended upon, for in Hurt, the English tailor, they have a progressive mer chant whose methods are upright and honest and who may be relied upon to stand faithful to every promise he makes to a patron. For the future ho will give particular attention to merchant tailoring. This department of Hart's store lias always been in capable hands, but hereafter it will be tlie leading feature of the cstab ment. In the meantime his entire lot of ready-made clothing will he disposed of at a sacrifice. Room must be had for the stock of spring cloths which is com ing. and for the present any reasonable offer for suits, pants, etc., will be taken.

The fae- Sf MURDER WAS PROVEN. TESTIMONY STAMPS DEPUTIES AS A GANG OF MAN-KILLERS. Prosecution flu., Cloned It. Side in ttic Martin Trial— Awful Evidence of the Havoc Wrought by Winelienter. Shown iu Court—A Freeland Witness. The case for the commonwealth against the Lattimer deputies closed on Saturday, and public opinion emphatic ally declares that a clear charge of wilful murder has been Indisputably proven by the prosecution against sev eral of tho accused men. Regardless of the legal rights of the sheriff in the premises, the testimony of dozens of witnesses has shown that premeditated and deliberate murder was committed during and after the genoral slaughter, and while judge and jury may white wash this bloody crime, the. stain on the characters of some of these deputies will remain in tho public's eyes as a brand to mark tho men of this region who un der the guise of law have assassinated many of thoir fellow-creatures. The defense will open today, and the opening argument will bo made by Geo. S. Ferris, after which the first of a hun dred or more witnessos will be put on the stand. At least two more weeks will pass before the end of the trial. The last days of the prosecution's side of tbo case were dramatic. Never since the trial began have the barbarous cruelties of Sheriff Martin and his in human thugs been more graphically recited; never have tho awful effects of Winchester bullets been so horribly demonstrated. Into tho court room Thursday after noon came four men carrying a liftli man in a chair. Up the aisle tho human burden was borne and down in front of tho witness bo>: It was deposited. Then in a tone of voice scarcely above a whisper, John Ousporlk was sworn. Ho was the victim of a bullet that crashed through his skull and imbedded Itself In his brain, leaving him a hopeless para lytic. "I saw Sheriff Martin approaching us at Lattimer," Gusperik feebly declared. ."Then he disappeared, and his men be gan to shoot. I tried to run, but a bul let struck me, and I fell down. I can't see well now, and every time I move my head I feel something rattle in there, i am unable to raise my arms or legs, and they tell ine I will never bo any better." Here Gusperik was carried to the jury box, whore a juryman stuck his linger into the wound at tho back of the poor fellow's head while lie, without changing countenance, for he had no pain, lay lamblike in the arms of his supporters. The gory possession of victims then moved on and into the box. Tattered John Slebodnik, wrapped in a heavy overcoat, was next. Slebodnik's head also contained a bullet, and the doctors at the University of Pennsylvania hospi tal, in Philadelphia, who located the bullet with the X-rays, say that he will die tlie minute it is removed. Slebodnik showed the jury tho scar, and after doclaring that he ran at tho first shot, but'dld not got far, was assist - ed back to tho witness room. Angelo Mat/, an Italian rag-picker, who joined the strikers simply because he wanted to soe what was going oil, told a ghastly tale and illustrated it witli tho aptness of an artist. "I heard the shooting," he said through an interpreter, "a man was shot and fell into the gutter. He tried to get op and go away, but I saw a deputy run up to him and puting a rifle to his back send several more bullets Into him. Then he laid still." "Show us how the deputies aimed," commanded District Attorney Martin, giving Matz a riHe. He straightened up. He was a soldier and Ids eyes glistened with delight- Quickly bring ing the piece from an order to a ready, Matz swept the first six rows gf the deputies with the bluo barrel, and the cowards, hitherto unmoved by tho sight of the wounds they inflicted, quailed as the barrel was pointed at them. Casper Mozecr is destined to hobble through life with a stiff leg, as the result of the wound ho received at Lattimer. Upon the stand he bared his kneo and showed the jury where a rifle ball had ground its way through that member, leaving a scar 2Jtf by 1).; inches In size. John Hryzo, when fleeing from the wrath of the deputies, saw men (ailing like straw aud turned to soe what the deputies were doing, when he received it bullet through both legs. John Kullk, a little shaggy-headed Pole, whose koine is at Harwood, swore that the deputios robbed as well as shot him. The witness wore the same coat that he had 011 during the shooting and he showed the bullet hole. He also dis played the sear made on his side by the wound. Two bullets pierced Constantino Man oski, one at the right ankle and the other his thigh. Tho deputies were shooting, lie declared, when he fell after running 100 yards. On Friday a witness was borne In nn a hospital stretcher and replied to the questioning in tremulous and husky whispers. Ho was shot throe times In the back: two of the bails struck him FREELAND, DA, MONDAY, FEBRUARY 21, IS9B. near the base of the spine, from the effects of which he lias become an ut terly helpless paralytic. Ho still suffers greatly. lie was crying and moaning while the stretchers were being moved, and as he lay still the sweat was iu beads on his forehead, and Judge Wood ward ordered the tipstaves to open windows that fresh air might come to the witness, whose face was gray and pinched, the once muscular hands of the pick-swinging miner wasted to bony talons. Bernard Ruman is this victim's name. He has not moved his body or limbs since three bullets from the deputies guns tore into him, grazed his spinal column and made him a paralytic for life. Cut of such vital importance did District Attorney Martin consider Ru man's testimony that he had brought him from Ilazleton hospital at the risk of his life. The story told by Ruinnn was a simple one. so simple that even Lenahau did not have the heart to torture Ruman with a long cross-exami nation. So he asked a few questions, and then told him that was all. The release, however, was meaning less to the sufferer, and lie lay pinching Ids finger nails into the. woodwork of the .stretcher and biting his lips in agony, until tlioy carried him from the warm court room into the cool court yard. Ru man's words, spoken through an interpreter were: "I was in the crowd of strikers. When we reached Lattimer I saw Sheriff Martin advance and take hold of a man. After some words the sheriff shot him, and then as the man clung to the sheriff's clothes, the latter hit him on the head with his revolver and lie fell to the ground. When the general firing began I started to run. I had just climbed over the railway track when a bullet struck me iu the back, and I fell. As I lay on the ground 1 was shot twice through the legs. I have not been able to move since." This statement remained unchanged after tho cross-examination. B. C. Laubach. a baker of Freeland, said he was in Lattimer in September last. Bad been through the town and was at the side of the fence near the (irst and second house at the time of the shooting. Hewasoneof the few Ameri can witnesses and li is testimony was im portant. He showed the jury on a map whore he stood about fifteen or twenty yards behind the deputies. Ho said: "The deputies were formed in line before the miners arrived. The miners were one-quarter of a mile away when the deputies formed. The miners came down the road quietly and had no weapons. They got within 100 yards of where I stood. Others wcro behind. They walked four or five abreast. A man marched in front carrying a Hag. Sheriff Martin walked out towards the inon. It looked to mo as if they crowd- j ed around him. I saw no scullle. The crowd did not stop, moved on. I did not see any weapons with them." "What else did you see?" asked Mar tin. "The first thing I heard was some one call fire. 1 don't know who it was. It sounded to tbo right of me somewhere." "Did you know any of tbo deputies?" "I know Rill Raught." The witness went down and pointed out Raught ami continued: "1 hoard William Raught say that lie had live or seven shots fired. He was putting cartridges in his gun ut that time. The man who was talking with hi in said he had emptied his gun. They were shoving cartridges into their guns at the side." "Can yon point out the other deputy?" i "1 could not. 1 never seen him be fore or since." "Did you see the deputies running down tho alley shooting?" "I saw two deputies running down the alley shooting. They'shot in the ground and in the air. The firing had then almost ceased. The firing lasted about a half minute. It sounded like lire-crackers. There were first three regular shots." "What did the miners do?" "At the first they did not seem to know what to do, but soon they began running across the railroad." On cross-examination the witness said he worked for his brother. He said he heard the Lattimer people say they ex pected the strikers. He admitted ho did not want to meet the strikers. He wanted to be on the safe side. He said he did not see the sheriff after lie went into the crowd until after the shooting. The witness was carefully examined by Mr. Lenahan, and the jury seemed to-take a deep interest in the testimony. Laubach said he did not see Raught cross the road except, to remove a wounded man from the trolley trucks. The witness gave very impartial testi mony, the most important part of which was to show how often some of tho depu ties fired. Another riddled victim was Andrew Slabodick who was shot three times. He was walking near the tail end of tho procession of strikers at Lattimer, and swore that ho was running away when brought down. He was shot twice clean, through the body, and once iu the right arm. Ho is another and unique miracle iu tho list of recoveries. Naked to the waist, he showed his scars. Continued on Fourth Fuge. TRAIN SERVICE REDUCED. , Lehigh Valley'* New Schedule (Jive* Freelnml Poor A renin modal ion*. The reduction made in the train ser vice on the Lehigh Valley Railroad yes terday has resulted in giving Freeland poorer railroad and mail accommoda tions than it lias had for many years past. The new schedule lias abolished all Sunday trains on the Freeland branch, and communication with the outside world by rail is entirely cut oil on the first day of the week. The train which left here daily at 0.05 a. m., connecting at the Lumber Yard for New York and Philadelphia, has ooen discontinued. This train was used by persons who wished to reach the large cities early in the day, also b\ Freeland miners employed at lluzlo Brook, it was also a mail train and daily carried orders from our merchants to the wholesale houses in Philadelphia and New York. Its discontinuance lias caused much talk in business circles. The first mail out this morning left here at 7.35 o'clock, reaching the main line via White Haven. The morning mail had not arrived up to 11 o'clock. Station Agent Mcllugh did not re ceive the new time table for Freeland in time to publish all the changes today, consequently it is not known how badl\ the new schedule will affect passenger and mail service on this branch. The train for Wilkesbarre at 10.51 has been taken off, and it is rumored that many others have been discontinued. A meeting of the Board of Trade ha* been called for Wednesday evening, at which it is expected the business inter ests will bo ably represented and a movement started which will give tin town better railroad and mail service. Output of Anthracite Lu*t Year. The production of anthracite coal in 1897 has been officially reported at 41,- 637,864 tons, as against 43,177,485 tons the proceeding year and 46,511,477 tons in 1895, the year of tin; greatest produc - tion. In 1893 and again in 1893 the production <vas slightly larger than last year but the excess was not great. The percentages were very closely observed. The coal trusts year does not end until January 31 and any little irregularities in the table given below were corrected very closely in the month of January, but for the calendar year 1897 the com panies kept surprisingly close to their allotments, as shown by the following percentage table: Allot- Out- Out men t. put' 97. put'o6.

He had been imbibing freely as far as could be learned. lie was founcUa short dis tance from the path with the lantern about fifty foet distant.

S. fc S. on Sat urday morning resulted in the death of one man and serious injuries to two others. The passenger train, while run ning between Oneida and Shoptou, col lided with a mine locio of the Cross Greek Coal Company, shortly before noon. The locle, which runs on a third rail between these towns, lias the right of way over this part of the 1). S. Si S tracks, and was running at a high rate of speed. Ten mine cars were In front of it and ten dump cars behind it. When the trains struck, the mine cars piled over the locie, killing Michael Marketti, a helper, and breaking tin leg of the engineer, Patrick Sharpe, who with his lireman Thomas Tosh, had jumped from the locie. The passenger train, which was in charge or Engineer William McNeils, Conductor John J. Carr, baggage Mas ter \\. J. Tiinney and lirakeman David llanlon, all of Freeland, was not damag ed to any extent, but the passengers did fare so well. The collision threw the traium'on about, bruising them more or less, and one passenger, Mrs. Joseph Marchetto (nee Miss Mary Wallace), re siding oil Centre street near South, was seriously hurt. She was accompanied by three children, all of whom escaped wlj,h slight bruises. Mrs. Marchette was taken to Sheppton for treatment. Oh Saturday evening an inquest over the remains of tlio dead laborer was held by the Schuylkill county authorities. The D. S. & S. will also investigate the accident. Atfihitc for the Now County. From the lla/Jcton Sentinel. The agitation for the new county is now about due, and henceforth it should be regarded as the duty of every citizen of tiiis district to neglect no opportunity to promote this badly needed legislation. It is the impression among well in formed men that the measure will be in better shape to receive the endorsement of the legislature at the next session than ever before. The people of the entire state are now well acquainted with the situation here and with tin great necessity for such a division. It does not seem possible that there will be very great opposition to it this time, hut that, should be no reason for the citizens who havo suffered so long to sit idly by and permit the matter to rest until the last moment. The agitation should be continued from now on. The selection of a man for tins legislature should devolve entirely upon this sub ject, for there is nothing of such great importance to the people of lower Luzerne, and upper Luzerne too for that matter, than the erection ola now county hero.

Surprised Their Pus tor. The Jeddo and Drifton members of St. Paul's P. M. church paid a pleasant visit to Rev. S. Cooper* and family on Saturday evening. They came loaded with good thiiigs, which were highly ap preciated by the pastor and family, but the surprise of evening came when ail sat down to partake of the delightful repast which had been prepared. Under the plate of Rev. Cooper was found a neal sum of money, it is needless to say that the reverend gentleman was very grateful to his guests for their un- ; expected kindness.
