Philadelphia Italian Is Charged With
Death of Joseph Modena.
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
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

Main streeot, and Edward Leslie,
Tho funeral will take place Friday
morning at 9 a. nt., followed by a re
quiem mass at St. Ann's church. In
terment at St. Ann's cemetery.
Out of the Hospital.
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.

Freeland Will Celebrate
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.
