In the rear of his bicycle store on South Main street "Joe" Rice is using his spare moments in practicing for his heavy weight lifting act at the Nesbitt next Friday evening. He lias tied to gether two 100 pound dumb bells, two anvils aud a thirty-live pound dumb bell, in all weighing over 400 pounds, which he will lilt with one hand, lie will also hold fifty pounds out in each hand at arm's length, and lb many other feats show that he has great muscular stieugih as well as extraor dinary endurance, as was proven by his six-day bicycle races in Mudison Square Garden. "Joe's" star performance on this oc casion will be to break his own record of pushing a 100 pound bull above his bead eleven thncs, and he is confident that he can do better this time. The weight of every article on the stage is vouched for and any one de siring to come upon the stage and try to outlift Rico will be allowed to do so. Rice is in good form at 145 pounds and few men of similar weight could defeat hiiu in a contest of strength. ••Old 81 Mtebbiu's."

The conservative element in the Wyoming region are using every effort to prevent the threatening big strike. The clergy are crying out against it, because they say it means poverty for the strikers. Business men are appre hensive for the future and are doing their best to bring peace bof ire it is too late. Rev. F. C. Cumin, past er of Holy Saviour church, Wilkesbarre, whose congregation is composed mostly of miners, has taken a decided stand. In an address to his congregation, he said: ''Apropos of the general strike now threatened throughout the anthracite coal fields of this state I would respect fully call your attention to some timely advice which I consider a duty to im part. It is to be very much regretted that on the rising tide of universal prosperity in our great country theie should exist even the semblance of an occasion for the widespread strike which now seems nigh at our doors. "Strikes are seldom necessary, and always detrimental. There may, and often do exist grievances between em ployer and employe, which call for an immediate redress. But such redress is not to be found in the baneful strike." Charles F. Thaen, secretary of the Mine Workers' Union of the district, states that there would surely be a big lockout unless the operators agreed to meet the men in a conference. The breaker boys at the Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Company's Lance colliery, Plymouth, struck yesterday, and it is : feared all the breaker boys of the town will follow. If they do, over 3,000 men will have to suspend work. The I). & 11. Company's strikers re turned to work yesterday under a prom ise from the superintendent that their grievances would be adjusted. Fire-Alarm Boxes and Signal*. The men employed in installing the Gamowell fire alarm system in town are rapidly completing their work. The boxes are being placed in position and located as follows: Box 23 —Washington and Luzerne streets. Box 24—Ridge and South streets. Box 32—Centre and Front streets. Box 34 —West Walnut street and School alley. Box 42 —Birkbeck and Walnut streets. Box 43 —Washington and Chestnut streets. Box 52—Contre and North streets. Box 53—A1 vinton. Box 62—Krause's corner, South Ileb erton. Box 63—Schwabe's corner, South Heberton. To give an alarm, the Instructions are: Get key, unlock door, pull handle down as far as possible, then let go. When this is done a large whistle will blow at Electric Light Company's plant, repeating four times the number of box from which alarm is sent. The fire apparatus and firemou will immediately respond to that box. The signal code of whistle blasts is as follows: I—Wiro1 —Wiro trouble. 2—Daily test given five minutes be fore turning on electric light current. 3—3—General alarm; all lire apparatus and firemen to respond. 5-s—Riot alarm. It Is currently reported that if any more cock fights are pulled oft at Mc- Adoo the principals and spectators will be arrested. The many disgraceful scenes at these cock fights have aroused the lethargy of the constables! and they promise to make it hot for the people abetting this brutal sport hereafter. Michael Senak, a saloonkeeper of Duryea, was sentenced in court on Monday by Judge Lynch to fifteen years' imprisonment in the Eastern penitontiary for attacking his fifteen year-old daughter. lie fell to the lloor in a faint when sentenced and had to be carried to the prison van. Ex-Judge Schoch, the oldest editor in point of active and continuous service on one newspaper in the United States, died at his home In Stroudsburg on Sunday at the age of 86. Ex-Judge Schoch took charge of the Jeffersonian in 1840 and since then has been editor and publisher. John R. Jeffries, of Pittston, who had been missing from his home all day Sunday, was struck by an electric car at Kingston Monday night and cut in half. The motorman says he walked fro in some bushes at the side of the track and directly in front of the car. The breaker at the Joseph Donnin colliery, near Pottsville, was burned Tuesday night, the firo being due to an overheated stove In the engine house adjoining. The colliery has shut down until a new breaker can be built. In criminal court at Wilkesbarre on Monday the case against ex-Represen tative Thomas Moyles was continued. Moyles is under indictment for attempt ing to bribe legislators to vote for the McCarroll bill. George Keuch, formerly of Hazleton, has taken charge of the Lohmann res taurant, Wilkesbarre, until recently conducted by Thomas Oberronder. Drifting on a Raging River. One of the most thrilling escapes from a watery grave that has occurred in the upper end of the county in years took place Monday afternoon. David Culver, ferryman at Forty Fort, accom panied by his grandson Thomas and a boy named Lutz, was crossing at the ferry when the wire rope broke and the three started on a perilous journey down stream. The Susquehanna was very high and Ice was running. Without oars the ferryman and his companions were at the mercy of the stream. They were lirst noticed at the Wilkesbarre Market street bridge, but not quick enough for any aid to reach them. Word was telephoned to Plymouth and prepara tions made to rescue the party at the upper bridge. Ropes were suspended, but as there is a whirlpool underneath the bridge the persons adrift were un ablo to grasp them. Lower down boats wore dragged over the ice floats, but not before the current had carried Us victims out of reach. Another attempt was made by men in two skiffs to effect a rescue. Tbey suc ceeded in catching up to the ferryboat about a mile below town and were run with it into the ice jam near the D. L. & W. bridge. After an hour's work Culver, his com panions and the local men were rescued from the thin ice jam by the aid of ropes at Nanticoke. The persons had stretched ropes between each pier. This was the last place of rescue be fore the drifters would have reached the dam, where sure doath awaited them. They had mado tho trip of twelve miles in loss than an hour. Wrestled With a llui-glar. Horatio B. Koch, a merchant, of Alientown, had a thrilling experience with a burglar Tuesday night and had a narrow escape from being shot and killed. During tho night Mr. Koch arose to get a drink of water. lie noticed a light down stairs, and return ed to his room and pressed the burglar alarm communicating with the residence of his brother, Frank W. Koch, next door. In an instant Mr. Koch was confront ed by a man who pointed a revolver in his face. Mr. Koch let himself fall on tho burglar and held him firmly. Tho robber tried to free his hands so as to be able to use his revolver. After wrestling for about a minute, the burg- s lar managed to free his hand and fired his revolver at Mr. Koch at close rango. The bullet just grazed the skin at the right ribs. Mr. Koch permitted himself to fall upon the floor and the fellow, thinking ho had killed Mr. Koch, escaped. Tho only thing secured by tho robber was a watch and chain belonging to Mr. Koch valued at 3100. Mr.. June, l'lead. Guilty. Mrs. Alice Jones, of Parsons, the wo man who wont to England with a boarder, Gorge Stephenson, after first liaving secured jffiOO by placing a mort gage 011 her husbands property, and who was indicted on tho charge of forgery and fradulont acknowledgment, appeared before Judge Woodward Mon day afternoon and entered a plea of guilty to the second charge. Judge Woodward suspended sentence and accepted tho woman's own recog nizance in tho sum of 8500 to appear for sentence whefl wanted. Stephenson. It will he remembered, also pleaded guilty when called for trial, but Judge Eynch refused to pass sen tence until tho caso against the woman was disposed of. Stephenson is now in jail and the woman Is again living with her husband. It Is possible that both will bo called beforo Judge Lynch for sentence this week. Protesting Against Hahn. The fact that llyron Hahn, the Re publican county chairman, who was chosen by Senator Penrose as the com promise candidate for tho Wilkesbarre postolflco, lives eight miles out of town, and has not voted there in two years, has delayed his appointment. The protests filled by the other candi dates have had tills effect, and they have regained hope that one of them may get the plum. Acting Postmaster Fell Is now in Washington, making a final effort for the place. A prominent politician gavo out tho story that Stato Senator Scott and Sol. Bacharach, a Quay leader, offered Hahn a position as revenue stamp agent if he would with draw, but he declined. Patents Granted. E. G. Slggers, Washington, D.
