Bean the KM You Haw Always Bought FREELAND, PA, THURSDAY, JANUARY 5, 1899. Reduction of Capital Stock. The directors of the Nescopec Coal Company have recommended another re duction of the capital stock of that cor poration, and the stockholders will vote upon the proposition at the annual meeting of the company in Philadelphia on January 27. This corporation has reduced its capital stock at each annual meeting for the past few years. There are 20.000 shares issued, and on January 20. 1895, the par value of each was re duced from S3O to S2O; on January 29, 1897, from S2O to $9, and on January 28. 1898, from $9 to $7. The directors now recommend that a further reduction of $2 per share be agreed to, which would give the company a capitalization of SIOO,OOO, or $5 a share. This will likely be done when the meeting is held. The company's coal lands are located at Upper Lihigh and are rapidly decreasing in value, as the greater part of the original supply has been mined. A large saving in state taxes will he made by the reduction of the capital stock. Will Go to the Fhlllppluea. From the Tamaqua Courier. John V.

Some time ago Peter Sino kowskf, secretary to Bishop Kaminski, brought suit against Petor Gorski and four other Poles to recover $34 alleged to have been loaned and for which a promissory note was given. In court it developed that the following words had been added to the noto: "That we, the indorsers, agree to bo held personally liable for the amount." Counsel for the defendants alleged that this clause had been added to the note by Bishop Kam inski, after it was made and signed. The district attorney said he would pre sent the case to the grand jury. William l'enn Colliery Not Abandoned. There was much joy created among tho employes of the William Penn col liery, at Shenandoah, on Tuesday, when notice was posted by Superintendent William 11. Lewis that the Susquehanna Coul Company, of Nantieoke. had taken the renewal of tho lease, saving the mines from abandonment. The fifteen year lease of Stickney, Cunningham Si Co., of New York city, who operated the colliery heretofore, expired on Saturday last, and the company refused to take a renewal because the Girard estate de clined to reduce the rate of royalty. Tho colliery employs 500 men and boys, and is a large shipper. Patents worn granted last weok to J. R. Deisher, Pottsville, for a steam-dis tributing system for heating railway car-trucks, and to P.

Willi) tho nnely-ulucted officials of Schuylkill county were being sworn In on Monday at Pottsville, B. W. Cuiu ining, of Pottsville, who was elected district attorney by an overwhelming Democratic majority at the recent fall eiectiou, failed to appear to take the the oath of office. Owing to ill health, he decided, he says, not to assume the office. The court, therefore, decided after consultation luappulnfGuy E. Farquhar, of Pottsville, to the place to serve until the next general election. Mr. Far quhar accepted without ceremony and the oath of office was at once adminis tered to him by Judge Pershing. The oath of office was then administered to W. P. McLaughlin and James J. Moran. of Pottsville, as deputies. They with M. J. Fleming, of Tre/uont, the third deputy named by Mr. Cummiu^werecontinued by Mr. Furquhar, and will probabl) serve during hie term. Threats were made for the past few weeks that if Mr. Cumming took the oath of office quo warranto proceedings against him would be started for alleged ante-election promises and corruption. A sequel to this sensation was a notice served on court the next day by Edgar W. liechtel, wiiose three-year term as district attorney lias just expired, that the appointment of Mr. Farquhar is ir regular, and that he is still the district attorney, and prepared and ready to perforin his duties as such officer. Mr. Bechlel's protest was presonted in open court, before Judge Marr. The new form tho district attorney ship has developed is the topic of much discussion among lawyers and politicians generally, and they agree with Mr. Bechtel's contention that Mr. Cummlng. not having qualified, had nothing to resign, and that under the law Mr. liechtel is district attorney until his suc cessor is elected and duly qualified. If this contention is sustained by the court Mr. liechtel will servo for tho | ensuing throe years. In this instance the complications growing out of Mr. Farquhar's appointments would bo quite serious. All the indictments signed by him for the present term of court would be invalid. Mr. RechtcPs protest will be brought up on Saturday morning next for argu ment before the full bench. Thrilling: Race for Life. A Pennsylvania Railroad passenger train had a thrilling race witli four loaded runaway coal cars near New Boston on Tuesday. A work train which had taken siding at New Boston to allow tho passenger a clear track, backed out as the rear coach disappeared around a bend in the road. A freight train came thundering along at the heels of the passenger, and crashed into the work train, wrecking five cars, and start ing four loaded gondolas down tho grade on the passenger train's trail. Tho runaways gained rapidly, and for several miles the trains raced, tho passen ger straining to escape with its precious burden of human freight. As they whirled by Moore station the operator, alive to the situation, wired the next station to sidetrack the runaways. The passenger had barely left Morris Junc tion as the four cars were switched into a side track, going to pieces against soveral heavy timberladen cars. Traffic j was delayed six hours. The Clnio of it Great Succeim. The Business Men's Dance on Monday evening, under the auspices of tho Tigers Athletic Club, proved to be one of the greatest social successes held in town for some time. The attendance was nearly as large as on the night of the ball, the business people and their wives turning out in force, an ', throwing their cares of the desk and storeroom aside, they entered into the spirit of the occasion with the /.est that characterizes the great majority of our merchants and tradesmen. Seldom, if ever, was a more jolly crowd assembled in Freeiand. The last night was a fitting close to the unparalleled success in the line of ball* in this region, and the organiza tion to which tliis credit belongs can well afford to feel repaid for the labor by the manner in which the public's appreciation of its work has been shown.

THE ISLAND IS AN IDEAL PLACE FOF THE SPORTSMAN. All Sort, of Gome In Abumlxnce— Orir Six llumlrml lilxtinct Species of Fish In tlio Witora— Fight lo Ton Deer In a I>y a Common Bac For a Small Partjr. Cuba is a paradise for the sportsman, wild game and fish of all kinds being abundant. Parties of gentlemen on horseback, with their pack of hounds, hunt the fleet-footed deer. It is a common thing for a small party to kill eight or ten deer in a day. The wild boar is plentiful, and some times, if cornered, dangerous, especial ly the old master of the herd, called "un solitario," which will tear a dog to pieces or make a green hunter climb a tree, but a Cuban easily kills him with a machete. The island boar some times weighs 200 or 300 pounds, and has huge tusks, often five or six inches in length. The meat of the female is much relished by the natives. Wild dogs and cats, wild cattle, horses and jackasses abound. But the jutia, pecu liar only to Cuba, which looks like a cross between a squirrel with a rat's tail and a rabbit, and which lives in the trees and feeds on nuts and leaves, is the great delight of the Cuban. Fowls are in great numbers. Wild guinea hens and turkeys are found in flocks of from twenty-five to 100. The whistle of the quail and the flutter of the pheasant and perdiz are heard on all sides in the rural and mountain regions. Ducks in abundance come over from Florida in the winter and return with the spring. Wild pigeons, with their white tops and bodies of blue, larger somewhat than the domes tic bird, offer, in hunting, the greatest sport to gentlemen who will be re strained within reason. In the early mornings the pigeons generally go to feed on the mangle berries when ripe, and which grow by the sea or near some swampy place. A party of three persons have been known to kill 1,500 of the pigeons within a few hours. Robiches, tojosas and guyuaros are found in the thick woods. Mocking and blue birds, orioles, tur pials, negritos, parrots and a thousand kinds of songsters and birds of bril liant plumage flit from tree to tree. There are 641 distinct species of fish in the Cuban waters. Among those that delight the sportsman are the red snapper, lista, manta, gallego, cubera, surela and garfish. The sierra, which weighs from forty to sixty pounds, is extremely game, as is the ronco, so called because it snores when brought out of the water. For heavy sport, fishing for sharks, which are good for nothing, or the gusa, which weighs from 400 to 600 pounds and is excel lent eating, offers abundant exercise. Delicious shrimps, crabs and lob sters, clams and oysters abound. The lobsters have no claws and weigh from two to eight pounds. They are caught at night in shallow places along the sandy beach, a torch, harpoon and net being the necessary outfit. Some of the rivers abound in alligators, but few hunt them. An Electric Freak. An odd electric freak is reported from Kingston-on-Thames. The light ning was very vivid, and a singular ef fect of it was the ringing of the fire bell at the fire station, which commu nicates with a fire alarm near the free public library. The firemen were has tily summoned and the horses and the steamer arrived, but it was discovered in time that the alarm was caused by tlie lightning, so that a full turn-out of the brigade was obviated. The llnnrliiH Crane. I.lncoln Park, Chicago, has a dancing crane, called Mme. Juliet. Her keeper haß only to thrill a little roundelay, to bow and scrape, and perhaps toss a stick or two in the air, for the gay creature to spread her wings from the top of her long neck to the tip of her ungainly toes —for all the world after the manner of Loie Fuller with her Chicago's uancino crank. petticoats—and begin a system of pirouetting, of nodding, winking, and blinking, of tiptoeing, curveting, whirl ing, of rhythmically spreading and closing her wings, manipulating them as easily and deftly as though they were yards of china silk instead of quill and bone. 81.50 a year Is all the Tiubl'KK eosts. $l5O PER YEAR YOB Know Us Well Enough to feel that whatover you want in our linn cannot ho bought to any bettor advantage than of us.
