W Centre itroet STRIKE MARTYR LAID AT REST Over 6,000 People Follow Remains to Cemetery. Funeral of Patrick Sharpe at Lansford the Most Im pressive Ever Seen in the Panther Creek Valley. Yesterday the citizens of the Panther Creek valley and surrounding territory paid tribute to the memory of Patrick Sharpe, the strike leader who was shot dead at Nosquehoning Monday night, when they turned out by thousands to follow his remains to the Catholic ceme tery at Summit Hill. It was by far the largest funeral ever held in the region. It was a day of mourning. Many flags at half-mast were displayed alotfcg the line of march and business was at a standstill. At an early hour in the morning the mine workers began pour ing Into the town, every hamlet within a radius of many miles being repre sented. When 8.30 o'clock, the hour set for the funeral, arrived Ridge streot was a surging mass of humanity. A pall ap peared to hang over the community and few spoko above a whisper. The re mains, which were viewed by 10,000 poople, reposed In a black cloth casket and were surrounded by floral oflerings. The funeral procession formed for its two-mile march to St. Joseph's Catholic church at Summit Hill shortly before 9. The Miners' Union band, which had toured a large portion of the state under the managment of tho deceased, led tho procession. Tho cortege then proceed ed in the following order: Railroaders' Brotherhood, Ancient Order of Hibernians, Ladles' Auxiliary to tho Ancient Order of Hibernians, President Thomas Duffy, of District 7, and other labor leaders, twenty-four mine workers carrying the floral offer ings, hearse drawn by two black horses, twenty-live carriages with relatives and 1,000 women. Next, In solid phalanx, inarching four abreast with military precision, came nearly 4.000 United Mine Workers and tho engineers' and firemen's locals. St. Joseph's church, Summit Hill, where tho services took place, was crowded to the doors while thousands were unablo to gain admit tance. Solemn requiem mass was celebrated by Rev. Loughlin, Rev. McConnon and Rev. Norton. Following tho mass Rev. McConnon dollvored a stirring sermon. Among other things he said: "You mine workers who are looking for your rights, hero is one who has shed blood in your behalf; he was a martyr to the sacred cause of labor. 1 have confidence In the United Mine Workers. The people of tho United Slates commend them for their conduct in this strike. Now I want to say to you observe tho law. Lot no one daro to try to avenge this martyr's death. Let me say to your leaders, employ good counsel in this case. See to it that tho guilty party is punished. Go straight home, chorish not malice and forgive those who are persecuting you." After the body had been lowered into its last resting place many of the miners dropped tho piece of spruce they had worn during the funeral march Into the grave, and tho casket was covered by a blanket of green sprigs. Wednesday evening a committee of mine workers visited Major Gearhart, the commander of tho Twelfth regi ment, stationed at Manila Park, and asked him not to send troops into Lans ford. They said they had appointed a "peace committee" of about 200 men to preserve order and that they felt safo In saying that there would be no disturb ance. Major Gearhart said that troops would not be sent into the town unless It was shown that the miners and the local authorities could not preserve order. There was no need for them.

An interesting suit, in which prom inent Freeland people are involved, was hoard before Alderman Huchenau, of this city, last evening. It appears that some time ago Mrs. Frances J. Thomas, Mrs. Catherine Brobst and William Davis, heirs of the late Thomas Davis, treasurer of Freeland borough, contracted with Philip Ivoipor for tho erection of a monument over the re mains of their father, which reposod in a plot in the Freeland cemetery. The three children aforementioned and another daughter each contributed SSO to a fund of S2OO to pay for the monument, and tho full amount was deposited in the Citizens' bank of Free land. After the stone had been erected In tho cemetery, however, Mrs. Brobst demurred at signing tho chock for tho payment of Kolpor, and it was only after considerable difficulty that she was in duced to attach her name to the paper. ICeiper fiually procured tho check for tho S2OO but when he presented it at tho Citizens' bank ho found that Mrs. Brobst had again changed her mind and order ed payment suspended. Keipor then garnished the money in tho bank and the suit before Alderman Bucheuau was the result. Tho hearing developed some inter esting testimony and was marked by several sensational scenes. Alderman Huchenau gave judgment against the bank for $l5O which is the amount held by the institution minus tho SSO contri buted by Mrs. Brobst and which she pro tested against Keipor receiving.
