All Former Tutors Who Ap plied and Two New Appli cants Chosen Last Even ing by the Freeland Board. Freeland school directors last evening appointed teachers for the coining term, and without exception every member of last year's corps who applied was reap pointed. Every director took part in the proceedings and placed himself on record as favoring the continuing in service of those who have proven them selves capable. The action of the board is favorably commented upon through town this morning. Upon the recommendation of the \ teachers' and pupils' committee another teacher was added to the corps, to accommodate the pupils in C primary grade. As the contracts with all teachers expired with the end of the recent term, this made sixteen schools to be supplied, exclusive of the principal, who has two more years to serve. For these sixteen positions there were twenty-two applicants, which included all the last year's teachers oxcept George N. Vanauker. The applicants and tho number of votes received by each are as follows. Those preceded by an asterisk (*) wore elocted: *E. F. llanion, 10. •Geo. McLaughlin, 10. *Myron Zimmerman, 10. *Geo. C.

An important arrest has been made by the Philadelphia police, and the prisoner, it is believed, is tho murderor of Joseph Modena, whose life was taken near Drifton last April while ho was on his way to his home in Ilazleton. Antonio Lombardo is tho name of tho man charged with tho murder. 110 was taken into custody at his home, 713 Kater street, Philadelphia, early yester day morning by City Detectives Gal lagher and Walker and Policeman Ramoneth and was taken to tho City hall, preparatory to his removal to this county. Another man was also wanted by tho police, but although he was in tho house a short time prior to the arrival of tho officers, ho made his escape. Tho murder charged against Lom bardo and his accomplice occurred on April 2G and was prepetrated in a cruel manner. Joseph Modena, a junk dealer, was attacked on the road between Drifton and Eborvalo and was done to death with a knife and revolver. Not content with thus foujy killing the unfortunate man, his assailant took ills body into the woods, covered it with brush and set it on fire. Frank Sando, of North Centre streot, was placed under arrest, but it trans pired that he knew nothing concerning the case and his discharge followed. Lombardo arrived in Philadelphia about two months ago, tho neighbors in Kater street say, accompanied by his wife, children and another man. Both the men secured work in Germantown, and were seldom seen at home. Ilazleton officers wont after tho pris oner yesterday and arrived in that city witli him lato last night. He will be given a hearing today. Died Last Evening. Mrs. Bridget Connors died last even ing at her home on West Main street, near Ridgo, at 9.30 o'clock. She was aged about 7. r i years and doath was due to general dobility. The deceased was a sister to Mrs. Sarah Campbell, West Main streeot, and Edward Leslie, Wilkesbarre.

Thomas Smith, who was injured last winter in No. 5 colliery, Joddo, by a fall of coal, has been discharged from the Minors' hospital, and is now at his home in Alvlntown. At tho time of the acci dont it was believed his injurlos were fatal, but fortunately such was not the caso. Mr. Smith is still quite weak, and will not be able to porform hard work for soveral months. Raised a Flag. Had it not been for the thoughtfulness of Steve Drasher, the Municipal build ing would probably be without a flag today. Steve climbed to the top of the tower at 5 o'clock this morning and nailed there the national colors. The flag is not as large as It might bo, but is better than none. Abreast of the Times.

Attorney John H. Bigelow Will Deliver a Fourth of July Oration at the Public Park at 2 P. M. The small boy began early this morn ing to celebrato the Fourth of July and will undoubtedly continue his noise making long after the shades of night have been drawn this evening. But Freeland does notdepond entirely upon the small boy to do honor to the glorious day. The arranging of a pro gram for the observance of tho anniver sary of tho signing of tho Declaration of Independence has been placed In moro competent hands, and ir the day is not honored as it should bo the fault will not bo duo to lack of p'rcparations on the part of the Citizens 1 Hose Company. Weeks ago invitations to parade were forwarded to all the fraternal, benoflcial and patriotic societins of town by tho firemen, but for various reasons favor able responses were received from only a fow of theso organizations. Encouraged, however, by tho spirit shown by the old veterans, the borough officials and some of tho societies com posed of foreign-born citizens, tho fire men have arranged an ordor of parado and will carry it out this afternoon. It is regretted that the Invitations wero not moro generally acceptod. However, what the demonstration lacks in numbers will bo supplied by tho enthusiasm of tho participants, and Froelaud's unbroken record of many yoars of honoring the Fourth In a be coming manner will remain unsullied. The ordor and route of parado Is as follows: ORDER OK PARADE. Marshal—James I'. McNeils. Aids—John F. Boyle, VV. J. Morgan. Freeland Follce Force. Town Council. Maj. C. B. Coxe Post, No. 147, (A A.
