••The Gunner's Mate."
"Tho Gunner's Mate" is a naval
drama, dealing with tho now American
navy. It Is not a war play. There Is
no conflict. There are no scenes of
battle, no shots are fired. It Is a play
of human inferos., with an abundance
of good clean comedy to relieve the
tension of Its drimatlc story, a story
full of episodes, that will appeal to
every heart. The play depicts with
absolute correctness the life of our
gallant sailors on land and at sea. The
scenes on ship board are faithful re
productions of photographs taken on
board of the cruiser New York. The
production will be on an elaborate scale.
The play Is In four acts and five scenes.
The first act Is in a sailors' boarding
house In New York city. " The second
act shows the gun dock of the New York,
the vessel lying at anchor off Tompklns
ville, in Now York harbor. The first
scene of the third act transpires In the
forecastle while the ship Is at sea. and
shows the life of our sailors while off
dutsv. In this scene specialties are In
troduced. Thesillors forecastle band,
consisting of mandolins, guitars and
violin cello, for the dancers and
singers. The scene s one of animation
and hilarious fun making.
The second scene of tho third act Is In
the fire-room of the ship. The discovery
has been made that there Is something
wrong with one of the boilers, there Is a
leak In the back connections. Volun
teers are called for to undertake the'
hazardous task of repairing the leak.
(This actually happened in our navy,
and the sailor who volunteered and
risked bis life wa ; promoted and award
ed a medal of honor). "The Gunner's
Mate" volunteers and at the risk of his
life repairs the carnage. The scene Is
one of strong Int rest, and the surpris
ing climax at the end of the act Is a
thrilling feature.
The fourth act is In the home of the
heroine, and her< the exciting story of
the play Is brought to a happy end.

FREELAND, PA., MONDAY, JANUARY 1, 1900.
THE FINAL NIGHT.
This Evening Will End thm Tigers
Dnuosii for Another Tenr.
No matter what their expectations
had been, no one who visited Y&nnes'
opera house Friday evening was dis.-
appointed. The promise made by the
Tigers Athletic Club that their eleventh
annual ball would be far beyond any
thing that the town had seen heretofore
in that line were fulfilled to the letter.
The decorations represented a full
week's work of the members, and be
yond question were, with the excellent
electrical work, as handsome as were
ever arranged in the coal region. The
Interior of the hall fairly dazzled the
beholder and it Is safe to say that for
some time to come it will not be made
more handsome than It was on Friday
night.
The ball itself was another of the
usual successes of the club In point of
attendance, as well as socially and
financially. The grand march at 10
o'clock was led by Master of Ceremonies
George Doggett and Miss Ella Meehan.
The entire building, except the private
apartments of Mr. Yannes, was leased,
the cloak, refreshment and toilet rooms
being located on the third floor.
On Saturday evening a hop was con
ducted by the club and another large
crowd attended and enjoyed Itself.
Tonight has been set apart for the
business and professional people, and
the desire on the part of this class to
enjoy a night with the Tigers Is a sure
indication that the final evening of the
series will equal Its two predecessors.
Foftter and Hazle Not In It.
The county commissioners have issued
a proclamation giving notice that the
townships of Marcy, Newport, Plains,
Plymouth and Wilkesbarre have been
declared townships of the first class and
will take rank as such after March 1
next. An act was passed by the last
legislature dividing townships into two
classes and providing a new form of
government for first-class townships,
doing away with the present form.
Townships having a population on an ,
average of 300 to the square mile shall
bo known as townships of the first clas9.
The details of the act were noted In the
TRIBUNE a few months ago. The town
ships named will elect their new officers
In February.
It is somewhat of a surprise that
Foster and Hazle townships were not
included in the list, but this was due
to the fact that according to the 1890
census their population does not average
300 to the square mile. After the next
census It is possible that thoy may have
the number required.
Scranten May Lone Big Mill.
At a special meeting of the stock
holders of the Lackawanna Iron and
Stoel Company on Friday It was voted
to increase the capital stock, from
83,750,000 to $25,000,000, so as to enable
the company to take advantage of any
opportunities that may arise for better
ing its conditions, as was given out
at the conclusion of the meeting. The
vote was strongly In favor of the in
crease.
Colonel A. D. Blair, one of the stock
holders, said there was no Immediate
purpose In Increasing tho stock. The
question of moving to Buffalo has been
discussed, he said, but not any more so
than several other propositions. It Is
just as likely as not that tho mills will
romaln just as thoy are, ho said.
Tho city is very much oxerclsed over
the possibilities of tho mills being taken
away from Scranton. Thoy employ
about 3,000 hands, and about one-sixth
of the city's population is dependent
upon them.
Conld Net Identify Body.
Tho body of William Cosgrove. for
merly of Wilkesbarre, who was one of
tho victims of tho battleship Maine,
could not bo Identified among the num
ber which arrived at Now York several
days ago from Havana, on the battle
ship Texas and It will, therefore, not
arrive In that city for burial, as expect
ed. It Is probaflfle that the remains
were buried In Arlington cemetery at
Washington. The fact that tho body
could not be brought there was a severe
disappointment to his relatives.
Investigating a Mystery.
Coroner MeKee has impaneled a jury
to inquire Into the mysterious death of
John Kuloskl, of Sturmerville, a9 he sus
pects foul play. Kuloskl attended a party
at Edwardvllle on Christmas night, and
the next morning was found badly In
jured. Those in the house said he had
fallen downstairs. Then It was dis
covered that when he went to tho party
he had $350 and a revolver. Both
money and weapon were missing from
from his body.
The Gems Dramatic Company plays
this week at Passaic, N. J. On account
of there being no Sunday trains leaving
hero, it was found necessary by tho
company to cancel their Saturday even
ing engagement, and an announcement
to that effect was made during the ren- j
dition of "The Double Life" on Friday
night.
i The cold snap has made strong Ice on
the ponds in this section and skaters
are enjoying themselves.
MINES AND RAILROADS.
Some Items of Interest to Workers In
These Two Great Industries.
A number of Jersey Central Railroad
men, having signed the petition of P.
F. Murry for a saloon license In Mauch
Chunk, Superintendent Wentz, of the
Central, has written each signer a
personal letter, in which he asks them
to withdraw their signatures on the
ground that "liquor is one of the
greatest curses of railroaders." The
interference of the superintendent is
resented and there Is much objection
on the part of railroaders to withdrawing
their names from the petition.
Just now there is a demand for the
larger sizes of coal and the opportunity
to get out all the coal possible is being
made. The present cold snap will help
increase the demand and altogether
the outlook for work during the com
ing winter is very bright. Lump,
broken and egg are the sizes for which
there is most demand and orders are re
ceived faster thuu they can be filled.
Philip Riley is lying critically ill of
cancer at his home iu Luzerne borough.
He is well known among railroad men.
He helped to build the Lehigh Valley
Railroad, and for many years was road
master of the Northern division. One
of his sons, Patrick, is yardmaster at
Coxton, and another is an engineer on
the Lehigh Valley.
Among the many new orders of the
Reading Company which will go Into
effect today Is one compelling all mine
foremen to examine any one who is In
jured under his charge and ascertain 1
the extent and cause of the accident, j
They are also required to visit the in
jured men from time to time and report
their condition.
Tho production of anthracite coal for
1899 will be the greatest on record, and
at least 47,500,000 tons. December's
production is expected to be below that
of November, owing to the scarcity of
cars and the holidays, and cortainly not
over 4,500,000 tons.
The Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal
Company and the Silver Rrook Coal
Company have no.filed their employes
of an advance of 2 per cent in their
wages.
Tho Cross Creek Coal Company's em
ployes received an advance of 2 percent
when they were paid last week. The
increase dates from December 1.
Beginning today the Lehigh Valley
Coal Company will not collect doctors'
bills through the office, which has been
a custom for many years.
Gamewtll System Adopted.
The borough council met on Thurs
day evening with Messrs. Kline, Davis,
; Smith, Meoh&n, Mulhearn and De
| Plerro present. President Kline stated
that the object of tbe meeting was to
make further investigation into the
I various system of fire alarms from
whom bids were received. The secre
tary read letters from various towns
and cities where the Gamewell system
is in use recommending it very highly.
Mr. Smith offered a resolution author
izing the fire committee to draw up a
contract with the Gamewell Company.
Mr. DePiorro stated that he had a
message from Mr. Klley, of Hazleton.
who represented a Boston company,
withdrawing his bid.
Mr. Mulhearn wanted some definite
information In regard to the proposition
of tho Gamewell Company. The secre
tary was unable at the time to supply
tho desired information, having loft the
bids at home. The resolution after
some debate by the members was passed
finally.
A communication from W. E. Bellas,
of the overall factory, was read, in
which that gentleman offered to sell a
motor to tho borough for $350. Tho
conditions give tho borough the right to
take the motor and keep it on trial for
ten days and If not satisfactory to return
it to the company in as good condition
as when it left their factory. No action
was taken.
' Council will meet this evening in reg
ular session.
New Terminal for Lehigh Valley.
It Is stated that the Lehigh Valley
Railroad Company has secured what
Is known as Black Tom Island on the
Communlpaw shore, N. J., for a pas
senger terminal and that within a year
trains will be running to It and a ferry
communication established with New
I York city. At present the passenger
trains use the Pennsylvania Railroad
tracks and depot. It is said that plans
have been prepared for an elaborate
train shed and passenger depot on
Black Tom Island and that work on
the building will soon begin.
The proposed road to the island is
being cleared. The road will bo wido
enough for four main tracks and a
number of sidings for the storage of
cars. Deeds were filed a few days ago,
transferring Black Tom Island from the
National Storage Company to the
Standard Oil Company, and it Is said
that at the proper time the property
will be transferred to tho Lehigh Valley
Company. Tho forry terminal at New
York will be located as near as possible
to the Battery, so as to be convenient
to all the surface and elevated roads.
COURT HOUSE MOVINGS.
CHANGES THAT TAKE PLACE AT THE
, COUNTY SEAT TODAY.
Three Officii Affected—The New Offlcleli
end Their AttMlßtentn—Old Clerks Who
Will Retire— Diisgreement Among; the
Republican Commissioners.
From the Wllkesbarre Record.
Monday will be the annual moving
day at the court house, and it will mark
the departure of a few office-holders
from some snug berths and a number of
changes In some desirable clerclal posi
tions. The offices that will be affected
are the register's, treasurer's, and the
commissioners'. In two of these offices
—the register's and treasurer's—there
will be a complete change in the force
of clerks, while in the commissioners'
office there is still a cloud of uncertainty
hanging over the disposition of the
clerkships, owing to a disagreement
between Commissioners Ilay and Jones
over two or three of the important
| places In the office.
Hiram P. Kuntz, who will turn the
management of the register's office over
to his successor, John Mainwarnlng,
will return to Hazleton and will prob
bably again enter the employ of the coal
company with which he served before
he was chosen register. Register Kuntz
will retire from office with the hearty
good wishes of all who have had busi
ness with the office during his incum
bency. He has been a capable official
and gave the county an excellent ad-
ministration.
Register-elect Mainwaring has select
ed an entirely new set of clorks, all of
whom are peculiary fitted for the posi
tions they have been chosen to fill. Mr.
Mainwaring's clerks will be as follows:
Deputy registor—-Robert P. Robinson,
the retiring county treasurer.
Clerk—David J. Linskill, Plymouth.
Marriage license clerk—Charles B. !
Smith, Pittston.
Doputy at Hazleton—Hiram P. Kuntz.
Mr. Mainwaring will retain the
present deputy register, Mr. Poettlger,
until he and his assistants become
familiar with the duties of the office.
Treasurer Robert P. Robinson, who
will turn the funds of the county over
to the custody of Treasurer-elect Kirk
endall, has, as has been his custom in
the various positions he has filled, givon
the county efficient service. As Mr.
Robinson will follow his deputy to the
register's office, the only member of the ,
present staff in the treasurer's office I
who will leave the court house Is George >
Reed. Mr. Reed will not leave the !
office, however, until April 1, Treasurer
elect Klrkendall having decided to
retain him until his appointees aro
capable of carrying on the work with
out a hitch.
Mr. Klrkendall's assistants are:
Deputy—James P. Gorman, Hazleton.
Clerk—George Kirkendal), Dallas.
From what can bo learned, there is
an unfortunate disagreement between
Commissioners Hay and Jones over the
selection of their clerks. The commis
sioners have held sevoral meetings, but
up to yesterday they were still at log
gerheads, being unable to agree on a
deputy and two of the important cler
ical positions. As Mr. Driesbach has
decldod to leave the office it becomes
the duty of the commissioners to fill the
place and their efforts to select Mr.
Dreisbach's successsor was the first
cause of the breach.
Mr. Jones favors Thomas Potors, who
at present is filling the next placo to
the deputy, promoted to the vacancy.
Mr. Hay, however, is in favor of Mr.
Woodruff, another clerk. Were this
the only difference between them an
agreement would not seem so remote,
but the commissioners also disagree on
the disposition of one or two other
clerkships. Mr. Jones believes he should
be allowed to fill the place now held by
George 'Henry, but Mr. Hay again
thinks otherwise. The commissioners
will hold another meeting and endeavor
to compromise their differences.
The opinion among the politicians Is
that Messrs. Hay and Jones will not
agree and that one or the other of them
will combine with Commissioner-elect
Finn and select the corps of clerks,
county solicitor, etc. Should such come
to pass the Democrats might secure a
place or two in the office, as It Is not
likely that Mr. Finn would cast his vote
with either Jones or Hay without being
given tho priviloge of selecting a few of
bis friends.
Of the present board of commission
ers, the only one who will retire from
office is John Guiney, who has been
tho minority member of tho board the
past three years. Mr. Guiney retires
with the confidence of all who have had
official business with him. Ho will de
vote all his time heroaftor to his busi
ness.

A HAPPY
NEW YEAR.
The old year is now gone and we
look back with pride to a long
line of satisfied patrons whom
we have pleased by giving
them great bargains at our
Mammoth Store. We also look
forward to the New Year with
pleasant anticipations, well
knowing that our patrons of
1899 will be our patrons in
1900 and they will bring their
friends to trade with us too,
because we will give greater
bargains in 1900 than ever
before and thus aid in making
it a Happy New Year for all
