IHDMPSOi DIPHTHERIA CUBE CO., ? - A POSTiMASTER ACCUSED. SERIOUS CHARGE MADE AGAINST E. F. BOGERT, WILKESBARRE. Government Detective* Trap lllin While in (lie Act of ReHiilng Letter* Aildreks ed to Duolne** Meu—Ben*ution Created by Hi* Arre*t—Under $4,000 Kail. Postmaster Edward F. Bogert, of Wilkesbarro, was arrested about mid night Thursday night on the charge of tampering with the •mails by United States Inspector Hugh Gorman und two assistants. One of these assistants was acting as clerk in the postofbee, and soon after the Baltimore and Washing ton mails had been distributed Thursday night he saw Mr. Bogert take some letters from the various boxes, go into his private ofllco and pull down the blinds. The detective then gave the signal for Inspector Gorman and the other de tectives to enter. They came in quietly and the three went at once to Bogert's office and entered. They found him at his desk with, it is said, three letters addressed to prominent business men before him. All were opened. Ho was escorted to his home, and later Deputy United States Marshal Bacha rach served a warrant. The hearing was held in United States Cominissioner Ilahn s office at 3 o'clock Friday morn ing, and Mr. Bogert was held under $4,000 hail. Attorney John T. Lenahan becoming his bondsman. The warrant charges liiui with opening letters ad dressed to Liddon Flick, editor of the Tit/leu. Inspector Gorman took charge of the postolllce, and later Mr. Bogert's rooms at tho Leader office, of which paper he Is the proprietor, wero search ed. Mr. Bogert's paper next evening said the public should not criticise until alt the facts are known. Experts are at work on Bogert's books. It Is not believed lie took money from the mail that passed through bis bands. lie had been led, It is said, to be lieve that a scheme was on foot to oust him from ofllco, and ho imagined ho know the parties who wore at the bottom of the plot. He blames a number of Republican politicians, and it was the letters addressed to those parties that he is alleged to have opened. HOW BOGKRT WAS TRAPPED. It Is stated that complaint was made to tho government some months ago by business men that soino letters wore never received, and that somo looked as if they had been openod. Two secret service men wero detailed on the case under Inspector Gorman, but for somo time they found it difficult to get one of their men into the office without arous ing the suspicion of the p(W,mastr that ho was being watched. Nome weeks ago Mr. Bogert complained to the postal au thorities that liis force was not of suf ficient size to handle the mail expedi tiously, and requested that lie be given an extra man. The department said an extra man living at Scranton would be put on. This man was one of the detectives, and he started work on the night force two or three weeks ago, and since then, it is said, has kept a constant watch upon Mr. Hogurt. Inspector Gorman was very reticent. He said, however: "I believe Mr. Hogurt has been under suspicion for sev eral months, and complaints arrived at the department frequently. It took considerable time to work up the case, and much credit is duo tho young man who performed his part on tho inside." WHY" THIS ARREST WAS MADE. H. T. Gregory, one of tho two post ofllco inspectors from Washington and who collected the evidence and mado out tho arrest, said: "11. J. Gorman, the other inspector who was detailed by the government to work on this case in conjunction with Obituary. At a meeting of the Hoard of Directors of the Mining and Mechanical Institute of Freeland, Penu'a., held on the tenth day of March, 1899, the following resolu tions were unanimously adopted: Whereas, It has pleased Almighty God to remove by death, from our midst, Mr. John It. Wagner, from its inception a zealous promoter and from its organi zation a faithful director of our Insti tute, and at the time of his decease, its honored and efficient principal; therefore Resolved, That with deep regret we recognize that in the decease of Mr. John R. Wagner, our Institute has suf fered tho loss of a devoted friend and ablo instructor; its Hoard of Directors, a genial companion and wise counsellor; its students, a thoughtful guardian and conscientious teacher; and tho commu nity a true champion of liberal educa tion and public-spirited enterprise. Resolved, That his loyal and disinter ested devotion to the best interests of the Institute, his character as a man and his merits as a scholar, command our sincere and lasting respect for his memory. Resolved, That a copy of these resolu tions be transmitted to the family of the deceased, as an expression of our sym pathy with them in their deep affliction. Resolved, That those resolutions bo published in the papers of Freeland. H. H. Price, j Owen Fowler. ' „ B. A. Oborrender. ; Co.nmittoo. W. Js. Fry, J FREELAND, PA., MONDAY, MARCH 13, 1899. myself, and I came liero last Monday, pursuant to complaints which had been made to the postotlice department at Washington of irregularities in tho man agement of the Wilkcsbarro office. We made a thorough investigation and found evidence of the truth of the allegations. The discovery of tho evidence resulted in the postmaster's arrest. Mr. Gregory would not divulge the names of those who made the com plaints, but he intimated that tho inves tigation was made, not in pursuance of one specilic charge or complaint, but as a result of several complaints that had been lodged with the department. Mr. Bogert is editor and proprietor of tho Evening and Sunday Leader; he was for several years an active director in the Wilkesbarro base hall club and be longs to several societies. The affair has created a profound sensation, as Mr. Bogert is very well known throughout the country. Mr. Bogert was appointed postmaster to succeed L. B. Landmesser. Republican, three years ago. lie had a year to serve yet. He is a brother of the late F. 11. Bogert, a former Demo cratic state chairman and postmaster under Cleveland's first administration. The bondsmen of Mr. Bogert mot and selected I). A. Fell, ex-district attorney, and a prominent Republican, to act as temporary postmaster until action is taken in Mr. Bogert's case. Mr. Fell is an applicant for the position. Among tho other candidates for ap pointment are L. B. Landmesser, who was postmaster before Mr. Bogert's term; E. 11. Chase, who was postmaster about twenty-five years ago; Captain James Bowman, and Liddou Flick. The hearing which was set down for Saturday n.orning has been postponed until next Wednesday, owing to the United States attorneys being unable to get there. Anthracite Coal Situation. At the Philadelphia and Reading Company's office in Philadelphia it is denied there is a coal trust formed or forming. The companies are attending strictly fo the production of coal on the understating us to tho restriction of the outp-.t. Other company's officials have also denied the report, nevertheless It Is believed the combination has been formed but that the public announce ment was made too soon to suit the promoters. The purchase of Lackawanna individ ual operators' mines by the Temple Iron Company, a creation of the Reading Company, still continues. In addition to all the mines of Simpson Watkins. the Newton Company's Pittston col lieries have been bought, and nearly every operator in tho upper end has been asked to namo his price. The anthracite companies have been very careful as to public agreements, and since the suits which were the out come of the McLeod deal, nothing public has been done which tho various states might take cognizance of. The same laws prevails now as did then and no one knows it better than the official of these companies, hut they in tend to br at the law in one way or other. Some of the companies are keeping in line better than they have been, pres sure having been brought to bear upon the recalcitrants. There is a good de mand for all sizes of anthracite coal. The following table shows the amount of coal carried by each anthracite com pany in February and tho company's percentage, as alloted by tho trust.

The System Is Reported Success in foster Township Schools. Ward's Rational Method of Reading was introduced recently Into Foster township schools by urder of the directors, and the progress made bv tho teachers and pupils was reported to the hoard on Saturday evening by Superin tendent Gabrin. Earlier in tho day the teachers hud the question before them, at their monthly institute, and Mr. Gahrlo's report was based upon the experience related there by the several teachers and tho demonstrations given of Its success by classes from the schools of Misses Lulu Schmidt and Cella Galla gher. teachers at Upper Lehigh. The superintendent regretted that only one of the directors. President Wondring, hud accepted the invitation to attend the institute and witness the work of the pupils, lie staled that the pupiis went through a rigid exami nation and test at the hands of their own and other teachers, and that the pupiis acquitted themselves most credit ably. As au illustration of what t upils can do when properly drilled In the phonetic system, the superintendent tol l of a series of words taken at random from a dictionary and given to the classes to pronounce, which was done without perceptible effort 011 their part. An incident in connection with the drill was tho test made by another teacher to block the work of tho pupils by giving uncommon words as catches. Among these was the word "chivalry." Miss Schmidt wrote this on the board for her class, marking it according to the system, also the word "shivalrv," which follows the other in the dictionary. Calling a ten-year-old hoy to tho front, she told him to pronounce the word, which was done correctly, although It was quite-evident that the child was un familiar with it. The system, how ever, is such that any word can be properly pronounced after a short train ing has been given by a teacher who thoroughly understands the method. Tho superintendent stated that he hoped tho drill as given .would be the means of stirring some of the other teacher up. The enrollment of tho schools for the month was given as 1,035, with a per centage of 85. James 11. Feeley, representing tho Cartograph Company, of Philadelphia, map publishers, was present. Owing to a resolution 011 the books not to pur chaso any school apparatus this year the board did not purchase. A motion to pay Fred Haiges, substi tute teacher. sl3 for attending county institute was lost. A communication from Division 30, A. O. 11., of Eckley, asking permission to hold a ball in Eckley school house on March 17 was read, hut no action was taken. A son of Mrs. John Eberit, of Scale Sldlog, was permitted to return to school providing he would conduct him self properly. Tho committee 00 hooks was instruct ed to procure necessary books at once. The following bills were ordered paid; Cross Creek Coal Company, coal 826.50; 11. G. Phillips, 823.30; Lehigh Valley 11. R. freight, 80c; Wyoming und Pond Croek Coal Company, coal, 836.38; G. li.

Curlu's hall, at Ashley, was, It is suspected, fired by an incendiary at 3 o'clock Saturday morning, and before the firemen could gain control of the flames the paint shop of Reuben Dill, the grocery store of Sweeney & Carlo, a double house owned by Mrs. W. J. Richards, and a barn were destroyed with hut little saved. The loss Is about $13,000, mostly covered by Insurance. Thore have been several fires of late, nearly all of which are attributed to In cendiaries, and this last Is supposed to be of the same orgln. It is thought that Sweeney & Carle's was robbed before the lire and the lire was started to hide tho crime. St. Patrick's Itay Parade. Rev. M. J. Falllhoe, who was elected chief marshal of the St. Patrick's Day parade, has appointed Paul Dunleavy, of Joddo, and Edward Doggett, of Free laud, as his aids, and tho order of parade and other details are now being arranged by theso three. The parade will leave St. Ann's church at 1 o'clock in the afternoon. Mass will be read at the church at 0 a. 111. $1.50 a year is all the Tbhiuke costs. Severe Storm at Kckley. Between 4 and 5 o'clock yesterday afternoon a terrific hail storm swept over tills section. Hail stones larger than any ever seen here before fell with with great force and many window panes were broken. Shortly before this storm a cyclone struck Eckley, doing considerable damage around the col lieries, but fortunately keeping away from the resident portion of the town. The cyclone cut a path of from ten to twenty feet wide, traveling in zig-zag fashion, and tossed everything before it like chaff. / Eckley picnic grove felt the effects of the cyclone first. The dancing platform and refreshment stands wore wrecked and strewn a built. From there it headed for No. 10 breaker, digging a trench through a stripping bank, culm bank and siate bank the on way, and struck the western end of the breaker with force. All the window lights on that side were broken, sashes were smashed and tho heavy timbers appeared to have given away slightly under the pressure of the wind. Steam pipes around the colliery were snapped off like pipe stems. The lode house was next attacked and lifted eight inches from its original foundations. A combination car used for carrying miners to Back Mountain colliery was lifted off the track and dropped eight feet away. In this sat five small boys, who took shelter there from the storm, and all escaped without a scratch. A largo cattle-car was next overturned, then the brick walls of an abandoned engine house at No. 1 were demolished. All the property damage I belongs to Coxe Bros. & Co. Hoikl .SuliMcrJptlonA Growing. The committee on subscription of the Board of Trade met on Friday evening in tho Firemen's room with members representing four lists present. With the previous amounts on ail lists a known total of $7,000 has been sub scribed. The three absent lists were supposed to have added additional amounts since the last meeting, which would make the complete total amount subscribed to date almost SB,OOO. Mr. Salmon went over to Audenried last week to examine the wheel that he had placed in tho Lehigh and Wilkes harre Company's colliery at that place. The car was taken out of the mine and placed in the shop after having had nearly seven weeks continuous running of seven miles a day. After thoroughly examining all the parts Mr. Salmon feels satisfied that the wheel will do all that Is claimed for it. Optioning u I'ropoMMl Brewery. Rev. R. 11. Crawford, pastor of the Stroudsburg Methodist Episcopal church, delivered a vigorous sermon a week ago yesterday against tho move ment. to build a brewery in that town. The clergyman scored the promoters and liquor dealers in general, and the vigor instilled Into his sermon has some what dampened the ardor of those who are at the head of tho scheme. I'astor Crawford took for his text page 245, section 248, of tho Methodist dis cipline, which is as follows: "Any member of the Methodist Epis copal Church may be brought to trial who signs petitions in favor of granting license for the sale of intoxicating li quors, becomes bondsman for persons engaged in such trallic, or rents property as a place iu or on which to manu facture or sell intoxicating liquors." AcciiHetl of Counterfeiting. Charles Mosor, of Stlirinorville, this county, was arrested by Deputy Marshal Itncharach 011 a charge of having been Implicated with lleorge Czpatias, who was recently arrested in Shamokin, In the manufacture of counterfeit money. Moser spent the night in the county prison and was taken to Unitod States Commissioner Uahn's oflice Friday morning, where 110 was given a hearing, Tho principal witness against hint was a manufacturing jeweler named Alfred Job, who swore that Moser was with Czpatlcs when the latter purchased crucibles and other things used In making spurious coin. Moser was hold for trial. Upper Uelifgh (*llll Club. The first shoot of tho Upper Lehigh (■llll Club was hold 011 Saturday. Glass and tar balls were used.
