Philadelphia North American, Hop. Accused of being a coward, Lieuten ant Colonel Harnett makes no reply. The charges are preferred by officers and men of his regiment, who state where and when ho skulked. These charges have been given continued and conspicuous publication in reputable newspapers, which profess themselves convinced of their truth and challenge contradiction. Lieutenant Colonel Harnett received his nomination because ho was a soldier. It is as a soldier, and as a soldier only, that he is making Ids canvass for elec tion to the state treasurers hi p. Ilis military reputation is his whole politi cal capital. A soldier-candidate who does not repel a charge of cowardice, particularly when it somes from fellow-soldiers, who aver that he was hiding in the rear while they wore lighting at the front, must be judged as pleading guilty. If Lieutenant Colonel Harnett does not wish it to bo understood that ho admits his cowardice he must come out from behind the rice-dike of silonce and face his accusers. Altercation Terminate* Fatally. William Gordon died on Monday from injuries Inflicted, it is said, by Michael Corcoran, brother of Plttston's mayor.

Young Man Shot Down In Allentown. Within sight of his sweetheart, Ida Dottorer, Riley Kulp was shot and killed on Tuesday afternoon at Allentown by James Dugan. The shooting took place at tho stable of Dr. Orlando Fegley. On account of the rain Kulp did not work that day, and he intended to help his prospective father-in-law to do some repairing to the plastering in the house. He went to Dr. Fegley's stable to borrow a trowel froifi Hostler Neary. His sweetheart sat at the parlor win dow watching him. Just about the time Kulp got to the stable Dugan came across the field with a gun. According to Neary's story,. Dugan raised tho gun. pointed it at Kulp, shouted "Look out!" aud pulled tho trigger. Kulp was shot in tho face, the lower portion of which was entirely torn away. 11c died in stantly. Neary says that Dugan previously pointed tho gun at him in like manner, but only tho cap exploded. This prob ably led Dugan to believe that the gun was not loaded. Kulp was twenty-two years of age and Dugan is seventeen years old. He has always borne a good reputation. Coroner Yost held an inquest on Kulp's body. Tho jury rendered a ver dict of accidental death. Dugan, how ever, will be tried for involuntary man slaughter and pointing a gun. He is in jail. Sentenced to Six Month*. Richard Little, editor and publisher of tho Scrantoniiin, a Sunday newspaper published in Seranton, was on Saturday sentenced by Judge Edwards to six months' imprisonment in the Lacka wanna county jail and 8200 fine, as a re sult of his conviction in the libel case in which Postmaster Rippio was prose cutor. liefore Mr. Little was sentenced court refused a now trial.

Little's appeal was partially granted on Tuesday, when ho was given his liborty upon furnishing 82,500 ball until the supreme court acts upon his case. Tho course of the paper has not changed any through the editor's conviction, and it is stiii exposing the corruption and rottenness that exists In the municipal departments of Seranton and In tho county of Lackawanna. Score One For Host on. A man with a pasteboard box labelled "Ladies' Vests" sat in the Reading Terminal in Philadelphia the other day, so wrapped up in a Boston newspaper that he let the train slip off without him. When he found that he would have to wait two more hours lie seemed annoyed, but, notwithstanding his an noyance, he was kind enough to ex plain In a loud voice to a couple of uni formed officials how they ought to run things nt the terminal. "You ought to do as we do in Boston," he said. "At the station there the names of the cities and towns all over the country that the trains run to are printed In big letters on the walls, and the seats for the waiting passengers are grouped around these names. Suppose I want to go to Washington. I run my eye over the walls, and when I Hud the nnme I'm after 1 sit down nenr It. in a Washington sent. Then, when a trnln Is ready, the euunelntor—as we call him in Boston: I dor.'t know what you call him there—goes quietly to the peo ple who are In that train's seats, touches them on the shoulder and mur murs In a polite way; 'Your train, sir.' 'Your train, madam. Gate 11.' Now that's the way to do It. No shouting, no confusion, no trains escaping with out their passengers. Thnt's liow we manage things in Boston." Called Devil's. Horses. The Sultan of Morrocco, by the ad vice of the gravest and wisest coun selors, has recntly issued a decree pro hibiting the use of the bicycle through out the length and breadth of his em igre, says Le Petit Bleu (Brussels). MORE RAILROAD TALK. JERSEY CENTRAL IS WANTED BY TWO CONFLICTING INTERESTS. Kinitor Has It That the Ilelawure, Lacka wanna and Western Railroad and the Haiti more and Ohio KeorKunizers Are After the Coal Road. Thorn has boon much speculation in railroad circles during tho week as to the outcome of the rumors to tho effect that the 1). L. & VV. is about to absorb the Central Railroad of New Jersey. In spite of the denials by some officials and the refusal of others to speak many have believed that the deal will be con summated. The following, however, from the Philadelphia Press adds another phase to the rumors: "It was stated on Friday that instead of the Delaware, Lackawanna and West ern Railroad Company securing con trol of tho Central Railroad Company of Now Jersey, practically this road has been acquired by the syndicate which secured the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. When President Hill, of the Great Northern, and others secured control of the Baltimore and Ohio from the Morgan party, it was with the view of having a through lino from the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean, and it was stated at this time that overtures wore made to tho owners of tho Central Rail road of New Jersey. "While nothing official has been stated in regard to tho deal, it is the belief that these two companies will work in harmony. Tho natural se quence of securing the control of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad would be the acquisition of a road which had terminals in New York. This tho Jer sey Central has, and its river front property in Jersey City is very valuable. "While there has been considerable talk and rumors in relation to tho Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad Company securing tho Central, it is stated by the officials of tho former company that no overtures have been made nor are likely to be, and it is believed by many that while the Jersey Central would like tho Delaware, Lackawanna and Western to lease it at a guaranteed rate of dividend for a number of years, there would be no objoet in doing so, as tho Central Rail road of New Jersey, outside of its leased lines, practically runs nowhere. It is a coal road to a certain extent, as is also the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western, and there would be nothing gained in socuring the property. "It was intimated that the reason the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western was after the Jersey Central was protec tion, as the New York Central and tin- Pennsylvania Railroad companies are working in harmony. All the lines at the present time are maintaining rates, but in times of dullness it is not known 'what some of the roads may do, al though it is believed that the two great railroads of the country will work to gether. On this account it is stated that the control of the Jersey Central is desired by the Vanderbilt party, which Is a factor in the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western, so when business was dull it would prevent the Baltimore and Ohio from coming to New York unless it lived up to its agreement. For this reason color was given to tin? report that the Vanderbilt party was after tho Jersey Central. "For this reason alone it is thought that President Hill, of the Great North ern, and his conferees have taken an active interest in tho Jersey Central, and they have looked far ahead for such an emergency, and while nothing has been dono toward the leasing of that property it is believed that certain ar rangements have been made which will be binding for a long term of years. It was rumored also that in case of any difficulty between the Vanderbilt and Morgan parties tho Jersey Central, which contemplates building a lino to Princeton, could extend it further south and the Baltimore and Ohio could build from this city to a connection with it. It is thought, however, that everything will be satisfactory and that for some time to come there will be no cause for war between the conflicting parties, although the policy of late has been for all the railroads to consolidate, and it is likely that President Hill has mapped out this plan and is ready to put it into execution at any auspicious moment." One of tlio Heat on the Singe. Daniel Sully, in "O'Brien, tho Con tractor," Is without a doubt one of the best character actors on the stage. IB? has a praiseworthy ambition to elevate the Irish character of the drama, and presents the son of Erin as we know him in life, not as we see him in tiie comic papers. Across tho footlights comes only a delightful tinge of broguo, carrying in Its sweetness the outpour ings of an Irish heart, and tho pulse throbs of true Irish nature, lie is heroic without bravado; he is honest without saintlsm, and the pure and artistic air of naturalness permeates his healthful play. The discerning public should open its arms and wel come. a man bravo enough to present an Irish character which is not a carica ture. Mr. Sully and his noted company will be here on Monday evening.
