Oswald, on behalf of St. John's Reform ed church, stated that the ground for the sidewalk had been donated to the borough and that the church had laid the gutter. The matter was placed in charge of the street committee, with in structions to have the work done if found satisfactory. The following bills were ordered paid: Electric Light Company, street lights, $273.33; M. M. O'Roylo, supplies, $0.50; James Kennedy, tosting lire plugs. $2: Geo.

A bill for extra work on the Municipal building from the Ilazleton Machinery and Supply Co., $24.84, was referred to building committee for investigation. Enforcing the Law. Frank Drumhellor, a Ilazleton fish erman, was arraigned before Squire Shovlin yesterday on the charge of catching trout less than six inches in length. Druniheller, it appears, paid no attention to the notices placed along Hayes creek by the Freeland (lame and Fish Protective Club, but took every thing that came along in the shape of trout. The club, in accordance with Its an nouncement, had him arrested, aud the evidence at hand was so conclusive that Druniheller was only too glad to com promise the case by paying SSB. Ilis violations had made him amenable to a line of over SI,OOO, but as his was the first case to bo brought to the attention of the club the officers agreed to be lenient. Hereafter, it is said, no mercy will be shown to violators of tho game laws and the full penalty will bo demanded Jn future cases. The offlcors of the club also call the attention of all fisherman to the fact that the Nescopeck and Oley are trout streams and parties placing nets therein will bo prosecuted. After today a detective will patrol the creeks and violators of the law will find themselves in serious trouble. The club believes it has already given fair warning to all and ignorance of the law will not excuse persons who fish illegally. Mine Workers in Session. The Mine Workers of District No. 7 are still in session at Hazieton. It is expected that the convention will end today. Secretary John Gallagher lias been placed on a monthly salary, and will devote his entire time to the affairs of the district.

Doner has signed articles of agreement to meet .Joe Wolcott on the 26tli Inst., and until the latter bout comes off no date will be made for him to meet Qulnn.
