DRILL CONTESTS. Allentown Winn the First Prize and Nc run ton the Second. Owing to the unceasing rain, which began early yesterday morning and con tinued without interruption until late last evening, those in charge of the parade arranged in honor of the con vention of the select castle were com pelled to declare off this portion of the program. Largo delegations from the nearby cities and towns were in town prepared to participate, but the weath er made it impossible to carry out the order of the day. Three bands, the Citizens', of town; the Liberty, of Hazle ton, and the Pioneer, of Allentown, were here to furnish music for the marchers. The weather was also the cause of changing the scene of the drill contest of the Military Rank from the Tigers park to Krell's hall. The latter place was unable to accommodate more than one-tenth of thoso who wished to view the military maneuvers and the com panies were severely handicapped by the crowd. The judges of the contest were Cap tain J. C. Ivenney, VVilkesbarro, Com pany B, Ninth regiment, N. G. P.; Cap tain Androw Lee, llazleton, formerly Captain Company G, Ninth regiment, N. G. P., and Lieutenant Isaac D. Ravert, Lattimer, Company G, Ninth regiment, N. G. P. The companies entered were from Scranton, Allentown, Lancaster and VVilkesbarro. The last-named wa9 de barred from the contest because it was short one private, the rules providing that each competing company shall have at least sixteen privates, two sergeants, two lieutenants aud a captain. Lancas ter was not permitted to drill Jor the same reason. Scranton Military Company, Captain William Hauer commanding, was the first to appear in the contest. The members went through the intricate evolutions of the drill in a manner which won them considerable applause. Allentown Military Company, Captaiu Frank Rhodes commanding, next took the floor and that the company had an abundance of friends among the spec tators was attested by the generous cheers given the excellent showing made. Freoland Military Company, Captain Guy Sonsonbach commanding, gave a fine exhibition drill. The local boys did not enter the contest, but had they done so it was the gonoral opinion that the first prize would have remained at home. Tumultous applause was ten dered the company when the exhibition drill ended. VVilkesbarro Military Company, Cap tain John Alprint commanding, than formod with its full number in lino, but by this time the judges had departed to compare notes, and to the disappoint ment of the company and the public in general the county seat delegation wore not permitted to prove their claims to bo the bost-drilled company here. The decision of the judges was not made public until this morning, when the announcement was made that Allen town Company had been awarded the first prize of SIOO and Scranton Company the second prize of $75. Wilkosbarro, according to the rules, was given third prize, s2s.and Lancaster was allowed $lO A meeting of the Members of the Military Rank was hold at 8 p. m. in the lodge room of Krell's hall, where Import ant busiuess pertaining to this portion of the order was transacted. LAST NIGHT'S BALL. The ball given last evening under the auspices of Loyal Castle, No. 05, was largely attended and pleasure reigned supreme until an early hour this morn ing. The hall was crowded with the local and visiting knights and their lady friends and with the inspiring strains of DePlerro'a complete orchestra made the scene a pretty one. The grand march was led by William Anderson and Miss Edith Phillips, who wcro followed by more than a hundred couples. Dancing was enjoyed by the greater number of those present, while the Citizens', Liberty and Pioneer bands provided music for the promouaders. The ball, socially aud otherwise, was a decided success. The jury In the Shenandoah riot case, after being out for thirty hours, report ed to Judge Becbtel last evening that they were unable to agree on a verdict. They were discharged by the court. The defendant, Anthony Iladiewicz, was charged with leading tho rioting which resulted in the calling for state troops. The bond of Andrew Hudock, treas urer of the Slavok Roman and Greek Catholic Union of Pennsylvania, was filed in court yesterday in $12,000 with Joseph Johnson, P. M. Sweeney, and Condy O. Boyle, all of Freoland, as sure tics. SETTLEMENT RUMORS GROW Important Conference Held on the Coal Strike. Governor Stone and Other Officials of the State on a Mysterious Mission to New York City. From Today's Philadelphia Record. New York, Sept. 9. —Governor William A. Stone, of Pennsylvania, came to Now York today to bring about a settlement of the coal strike, and ho did everything within his power to accomplish that re sult. The result may not b$ known for several days. While many of the opera tors said privately that Governor Stone's mission would not prove sucessful, as there was nothing to arbitrate, yet, something is on foot to settle tho strike. Governor Stone was accompaniod to the city by Attorney General Elkln, of Pennsylvania, and ex-Sonater Fllun, of Pittsburg. Tho throo had a conference of several hours' duration with P. A. B. VVidener, of Philadelphia, in tho offices of the Uuited States Steel Corporation. After the conference had lasted an hour, Mr. VVidener went to see J. Pier pout Morgan at tho latter's office and asked him to use his influence to end tho strlko. Ten minutes later ho re turned to his fellow conferees and re mained In long and earnest conversation with them. Governor Stone was asked what progress toward a settlement had been made during tho conference and whether any direct communication had been had from Mr. Morgan. To these question ho answorod that ho had nothing to say beyond what was contained In his state ment, and that tho other parties to the conference had also been to silence. lie took from his pocket a sheet of paper which contained tho following: "Attorney General'Elkin, Senator Flinn and myself have been a consultation for some hours today with P. A. B. Wldencr of Philadelphia, who is a director In the United States Steel Corporation, and who is associated with Mr. Morgan in many busines interests. Mr. VVidener is very anxious to see the strike settled." The statement made by Governor Stone was shown to Mr. Morgan, who through George W. Perkins, his partner, said: "We have not heard from Gover nor Stone since his statement was issued, and wo have nothing to say re garding Governor Stone's statement ou the coal situation." Mr. Perkins also said that there was no change in the general situation. 110 admitted, however, that Mr. VVidener and Mr. Morgan had held a conference. President Baer came to New York to day and held a private conference with Presidents Truosdaio and Fowler. Tho latter said that no business meeting was hold. Mr. Fowler also said that Gover nor Stone had not seen any of tho presi dents of the coal roads and that ho has no intention of seeing them. Mr. Fowler was shown the governor's statement, but ho declined to discuss It. President Truosdaio also doclined to discuss Governor Stone's statement. Will of James Wilson.
