STILL OUT Jeddo Firm's Employes Decide to Return to Work, Drifton Company's Men May Reject Offer. A Committee Representing Drifton Company's Em ployes in Conference With President This Afternoon. President Irving A. Stearns, of the D. S. & S. Railroad Company and Coxe Bros. & Co., arrived In Drifton from his home in Wilkesbarre at 10 o'clock this morning to meet a committee of Coxe Bros. & Co.'a employees. The committee, which numbered fourteen, comprised two members from each of the seven locals composed of this company's employes. They wore appointed on Friday uight in response to a request from President Stearns, sent through District President Duffy, in which he asked that a committee be chosen to hold a confidence with him at Drifton today. Immediately after the arrival of Mr. Stearns the conference began,"but on account of the president-being fatigued from tiis journey his request for an ad journment until this afternoon at 1 o'clock was granted by the committee. Shortly after the hour named the committee and Mr. Stearns again met and proceeded to discuss the questions which have delayed resumption of work at the Drifton company's collieries at Drifton, Eckley, Stockton, Reaver Meadow, Oneida and Derringer. The complaints of the employes were received, and Mr. Stearns' answer was given to the committee under seal at 1.30 o'clock. This answer will be pre sented this afternoon to the executive board of District 7. While no authoritative announcement can be made at this time, it is generally believed that tho reply of Mr. Stearns to the coinmitteo is not a satisfactory answer to tho demands made at today's conference and will likely be rejected. Foot Ball Game. The third and deciding game of foot ball between the Good Wills and Cres cent teams began at the Tigers park Saturday afternoon in the presence of a large audience. Each club had won one game, and as Saturday's contest was to decide tho local championship great In terest was taken In the result. During the first half neither side scored. In the second half the ball was in play only a short while when a deci sion of Referee Nowak, which gave the Crescent club 5 points, was questioned. Upon the refusal of the referee to re verse his decision the Good Will club left the field. The members and friends of the dis senting team claim the decision of the referee was Illegal. Tho Crescents claim it was correct, to the best of the referee's observations, his view having been obscured in the play which caused the dispute. Tho admirers of the game are anxious that tho teams get together again and settle the contest for supremacy. The line-up of the clubs in Saturday's game was as follows; Good Wills. Positions. Crescents. McDyor left end Pultz MoTague left tackle Cope Gallagher left guard Dcitrich Median t centre Korchnak Johnson right guard Yannes Kriuge right tackle Hartimui Thompson right end Coll MeGinley quarter-hack Powell Bonner left half back Shovlin Ferry right half back Hindson McGeehan full back Stolz Mine Foreman Fatally Shot. P&lrick Hennessey, a demented man, shot and fatally wounded Daniel Doris, outside foreman at the Susquehanna Coal Company's mine at Glen Lyon, Sat urday morning. Hennessey was for merly employed as a fireman at the Glen Lyon colliery, but owing to his erratic conduct he was discharged by Doris. Hennessey made threats from time to time that he would get even, and Doris had fears that he would carry out his threats. Saturday morning the foreman was standing In front of the company supply store at Glen Lyon, when he was ap proached from behind by Hennessey, who, without any warning, fired two shots from a revolver at him. One of (lie bullets entired his abdomen, inflict ing a fatal wound. The other bullet went through the right arm, shattering it. Doris is a popular man, and there is much indiguatiou over the shooting. The wounded man was taken to Wilkesbarre City hospital, where be died Sunday night. Hennessey was at rested aud lodged iu the county jail. Employes of the Jeddo Firm Holding a Mass Meeting at the Grand Opera House This Afternoon. For the purpose of accepting or re jecting a proposition made by John Markle to his employes, through Dis trict President Duffy, a mass meeting of the men employed by G. B. Markie & Co. provlous to the strike is now being held at the Grand opera house. Though none but those entitled to a voice and vote in the proceedings were allowed to enter, the spacious building was barely able to contain the throng which demanded admission. From unofficial sources it Is learned that Mr. Markle agrees to reinstate all bis employes, excepting those who were evicted on Thursday, and that the firm will abide by the findings of the arbitra tion commission. A majority of tho district officors of the union attended the moeticg. At 3.40 o'clock the vote on the propo sition was taken and the offer accepted, A committee was appointed to notify the firm. Work will bo resumed as soon as possible. Enemy's Unique Revenge. Frank Edwards, a prominent young man of Bloomsburg, was made the victim of a mystorious emeny's wrath in a unique, but terrible way. Tho enemy poured vitriol in the pockets of three suits of clothes and an overcoat that hung In a closet in Edwards' room, hav ing gained access to the closet through a rear door during the day. Edwards wore the overcoat Saturday night and discovered nothing until he put his hands in the pockets, while on his way uptown. Instantly bis hands were badly burned by tho vitriol, and, thinking the coat was on fire, he hastily throw it off. An investigation disclosed the fact that tho pockets had literally been soaked with the liquid fire. During the night Edwards wont to his wardrobe and, putting his hand In the pocket of a coat, was again badly burned by vitrol. Upon investigation he found that throe suits and the overcoat bad been ruined. The young man first declarod that he did not believe he had an enemy in the world, but later admitted that he had had trouble with parties whom he re fused to name, and that threats had been made against them. His hands are horribly burned, and it Is,feared he may lose the use of them. A JUGGLER'S TRICK. Clever Feat of Illunlnn Performed by on Bant Indian. The wonderful feats of East Indian Jugglers have formed the theme of many a letter from travelers In the orient, but none Is more surprising than that for which an old sendog vouches. While he was ail officer on board a P. and O. steamship two natives came aboard at Madras, he says. They were a Juggler nnd his assistant. After they bad performed a number of m Iff or feats and gathered quite a crowd around them they called for a sack and a piece of sailcloth. These having heeu provided, the chief Juggler made a small tcntllke structure with the canvas and some stools. He then placed his assistant In the sack and allowed a sailor to tie the knot which hound him a fast pris oner. This doue, the chief carried the sack Into an open space, warning the people to stand buck some distance, und theu carried oil an animated con versation with Ills assistant, whose re plies could he distinctly heard coming from the suck. Suddenly the chief rushed forward, picked up the sack and dumped It ovcrbonrd, where, to the horror of the passengers and crew, It sank out of sight Immediately the captain rushed for ward and seized the man, under the full belief that he bad murdered his companion, but the Juggler only smiled and, pointing to the canvas, asked that It he raised. This was done,.and the supposed drowned man was discovered squatting on the deck. So realistic bail been the throwing overboard, however, that it was some time before the surprised passengers could realize a murder had not been committed. 111. R.vens., M. Colombies, a merchant of Paris, had his revenge 011 a former sweet heart, a lady of Boueu, when he left her by will u legacy of SO,OOO for hav ing some twenty years before refused to marry him, "through which," states the will, "I was enabled to live Inde pendently and happily as a bachelor."

James G. Harvey, who was defeated for representative by B. J. Feery, by 40 votes, has decided to contest the elec tion, and has placed the matter In the hands of an attorney. He claims that ballots in the Ninth district of Hazle township wore tampered with. Harvey was pledged to vote for tho re-election of Senator Boise Penrose, and notwith standing the largo number of Republi cans in the coming legislature bis vote will be needed by tho Quay machine, hence the contest. The finish of the count of tho vote in Schuylkill Fourth legislature district was very exciting, as it was discovered that Irvin Reed, a Democratic candidate, led the Republican nominees, and was one of the three representatives elected. When the count was ended Snyder, Republician, was found to have majority over Woodward, Republican. Crone, Republican, was also elected, making the delegation two Republicans and one Democrat. The name of George H. Hartman, of town, will go down in history as one of the defeated candidates for governor of Pennsylvania In 1902. The gonial meat dealer received one vote at Eckley for that office. It was cast by a Slavonian friend of his who said that none of the five candidates whoso names appeared on the official ballot was as good a man as George. By the official count of the county vote, as given above, Mainwaring, Re publican, Is found to have been elected over Holman, Democrat, for register of wills, by a plurality of 42. Mr. Holman is said to be slated for a position in the commissioner's office, in return for his work for his successful colleagues. B. J. Moore, ot Lackawanna county, who was elected to the office of mine in spector In that county, formerly resided at Warrior Run and is a brother to E. J. Moore, secretary of the Luzerne county Democratic committee. More Troops Sent Home.

It is expected that more of the First reglmont men will be sent home early next week. 111. Cii.c Not So Ilad After All. "All, it's n sad old world," sighed tho man who had been cheated out of 1(120. "Yes," assented his neighbor. "One of my horses got his head fast In the hayrack last night and broke his neck. I was offered *2OO for him less than a mouth ago." "Pshaw! That's too bad. Looks as though it was going to brighten up, doesn't it?" And he went 011 his way whistling cheerfully.—Chicago Itecord- Ilerald. LOCAL NOTES WRITTEN UP Short Items of Interest to All Readers.

The exception is Patrick McGuire, Jr. There are a few men still idle on account of their places not being ready, but theso will resume in a short while.

One was the Wilkesbarre train which passed through Freeland at 10 a. ra. aud the other was tlie Freeland way train which was returning from the Lumber Yard. Both engines came together and the passengers were severely shaken. Dan Rote, a brakeman, had his arm hurt. No one else was injured. One of the results of the visit of tho strike commission toShatnokin has been the decision of the Union Coal Company to raze their Hickory Rldgo ramshackle structures. The wretched condition of these aroused the sympathies of and called forth Indignant expressions from the members of tho board, under whoso notice they chanced to come. Mrs. Carrie Nation, the famous saloon smasher, passed through Tamaqua Fri day afternoon on her way to Williams port. She said: "I have heard of these coal region towns and the great amount of rum that is sold in them. I'm com ing back, and when I do I think some of tho saloons may go out of business."

I TRI-WEEKLY Why Diseases Become Chronic. Nerve Force Regarded by I Scientists as More Import ant Than the Blood. A $4.00 TREATMENT FREE. 1 The blood was formerly regarded as the life-giving principle and to its con dition was attributed all that there was of health or illness. Now, physiologists know that nerve force and vitality are the same, and that tho constitution, good or bad, depends upon nerve force. Nerve force controls all motion, sen sation, digestion and nutrition. An abundance of this subtle energy means health and vigor; a lack of it causes general debility, nervous prostration, premature declfne, disease and death. Nerve force is chiefly generated in the brain, and therefore in tho treatment of all lingering diseases the condition of the brain centers should be carefully considered and treated. One great cause of diseases becoming chronic is that physicians overlook the fact that deficiency of nerve force Is the chief cause of most diseases. Nervous pros tration is duo to lack of nerve force. Dr. Miles' Neuropathic Treatments strengthen and invigorate the nerve centers. They are the result of twenty live years' careful study, extensive re search and remarkable success. They build up tho system by increasing nerve force, and have won for Dr. Miles the thanks of thousands of sufferers. Mrs. A. Kronck of Huntington, ind., was cured after thirty physicians failed; Mrs. Flora (Jrnctor of Bristolville, (). after twenty-two; Jas. K. Waite, tho noted actor, atter a score had pronounced him incurable; Mrs. Frank Smith of Chicago, after five lending physic ians hud given her up; Mrs. Julius Krister of Chicago, alter ten; Mrs. It. Parker alter six teen failed. Tho treatments are not generally ad vertised, but every chronic sufferer is invited to write for Dr. Miles free book and Examination Chart. $4.00 worth of treatment especially prepared for each case will bo sent free as a trial.
