CHOSE HIS OWN WIFE Actor Refuses Money Left Him by Dead Uncle. -Legacy Had a String to It in the Form of a Condi tion That the Beneficiary Marry a Certain Woman. William S. Gill, a young man who ap poared In the rolo of "Ebenezer Tobb," the sexton of the Baptist church. In the production of "The Village Postmaster" at Hazleton opera house Monday even ing, has boon placed in a very odd posi tion by a will made by his undo, who recently died in Liverpool, England. It is a will that smacks more of the novel than real life. The will leaves Gill £5,000 if he will marry the ward of his uncle. Gill is deeply in love with a young woman who Is a member of the company and they aro engaged to be married. lie prompt ly decided that if he cannot get tho money without taking the ward also, the money is not for him. A letter was received on Saturday by Gill from his father, James Gill, of Bos ton, apprising the young man of the .terms of tho uncle's will. The uncle was Major John Reynolds, who died in Liverpool a short time ago from tho effect of wounds sustained while fight ing in South Africa. The ward of the deceased is the daughter of a brother oflicer who died in India some years ago. After that sad event she was cared for by Reynolds as If she was his own daughter. It was his hope that his nephew would marry his ward and with a view to encouraging this idea ho shaped his will. Fate de creed that this should not be. Gill has never seen his uncle's ward, but notwithstanding this he does not hesitate to say that she is not for him. "I did not hesitate a moment in mak ing a choice," ho said in talking about the matter. "What is £5,000 as com pared to a life's happiness. Money is a good thlug. but it is not everything, and with me It would not weigh for an instant against the woman I hope will one day be Mrs. William S. Gill." Officials Violate Promises. The trainmen on tho D. S. & S. Hail road were given the surpriso of their lives yesterday when they opened their pay checks and found that tho officials of tho road had broken the promises made to the railroaders to increase their wages to the scale recently adopted on tho Lehigh Valley Railroad. Some weeks ago the D. S. & S. men asked for an increase in wages, taking the new rate of the Lehigh Valley Com pany as a basis. The officials at Drif ton reluctantly consented to pay the scale of the other road, and nothing more was thought of the matter by the men until yesterday. After receiving their checks the rail roaders found that the increases were six mills per hour to the conductors and GRAND OPERA HOUSE. Freeland Opera House Co., Lessees. Wednesday Evening, Jany 16.

P*. one cent an hour to the engineers, amounts far below what were needed to bring their wages up to the Lehigh Val ley rate, while the firemen, brakemen and others received no increase. Those of the employes who had be lieved in the promises made by the of ficials wore naturally disappointed at tho manner In which they were hood winked, but others who have had similar experiences with these people were not In the least surprised at the deceit which the Drifton corporation exhibited. There was a time when a statement received from the managers of tho Coxe interests was accepted as truthful and was relied upon by all whom it concern ed; but this was when men with brains and honest principles were in charge. Unfortunately for the employes of the Drifton companies, the<e men aro no more, and the fair name which years of work established Is gradually becomiug a synonym for hypocrisy, of which the D. S. & 8. "increase" is only one of many instances furnished. The railroad men are determined that tho matter will not be allowed to rest until they receive what Is due them. Arrangements are being made to hold a general meeting of tho em ployes of tho road to take action on the refusal of tho company to live up to its promise. TICKET NAMED Democratic Candidates Nominated on Monday Evening. The Democratic convention of Free land borough was held in the Municipal building on Monday evening. Chair man John McCole called the meeting to order, and after tho credentials of the delegates wore presented and read a permanent organization was effected by the election of R. J. Esq., as chairman and John E. Mcllugh as secretary. Tho following nominations were then made, there being no opposition for either of the offices: Justice of tho peace—Hugh A. Shov lin, of the South ward. Auditor—Bernard Boyle, of the Fourth ward. The chairman was empowored to ap point a committee of six members to fill vacancies and rovlse the rules. After deciding to meet at the call of the chairman, to take action on tho committee's report, the convention ad journed. Both nominees are acceptable to the voters of the party, and the delegates and workers have no doubt of tho suc cess of the ticket at the polls. Married at Noon. At noon today James D. Alexander, of Freeland, and Miss Ida Irene Chubb, of Drifton, wcro united In marriage at the Park M. E. church by Rev. W. VV. Hartman.

Pretty girls sing and dance themselves Into popularity, and "Side Tracked" moves along without a dull moment, with tho soubretto and tramp in the lead.
