Freeland's Pioneer Publisher Succumbed to Death After a Hard Struggle Against Typhoid Fever. Owen Fowler, editor and publisher of the Semi-Weekly Progress, died at 5.50 a. m. today at his home on North Centre street. Death came to him peacefully and while surrounded by bis wife, son and mother, who were called to his bed side when the attending physicians and nurses saw that the end was drawing near. The news of the death, while not unexpected by the public, nevertheless shocked the community, and expressions of sympathy were heard on every side. Mr. Fowler became ill on October 25, and a few days later symptoms of typhoid fever developed. lie was at onee given the best medical care and attention possible, but he sank rapidly and fears for his recovery were enter tained In the early days of his Illness. Favorable changes occurred occasional ly, and these gave hopes to his friends that he would gain sufficient strength to overcome the ravaging effects of the malady, but in this all were disappoint ed, and at the hour stated death came and ended the life of one of whom Free land had many reasons to call a promi nent citizen and a true friend. The funeral will take place at 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon. Services will be conducted at the residence by Rev. F. Marshal, of St. James' Protes tant Episcopal chapel. The interment will be made at Freoland cemetery. Owen Fowler, whose death Is noted above, wa9 born at Llghtstreet, Colum bia county, on May 20. 1850, and was aged today 43 years, 5 months and 13 days. He was a son of Thomas C. Fowler, also a native of Columbia county. In 1870, Mr. Fowler's par ents removed from Llghtstreet to Riverside, Northumberland county, opposite the town of Danville, and at the ago of twelve years the deceased entered the Intelligencer office In that town as a printer's apprentice. He re mained there live years. Leaving Danville be went to Hazle tou, where he worked on the Mountain Democrat for a short while, and after ward took a Western trip, working for some time on the Omaha, Nebraska, Uorald. He again returned to Danville, worked there about a year, then went to Mauch Chunk and later accepted a position as foreman on the Shlckshlnny Mountain Echo. While in Shlckshlnny Mr. Fowler's at tention was attracted to Freeland, and after making a few visits here and taking a survey of the field he decided that the town could support a news paper. With this object in view he can vassed for advertisements and subscrip tions, and while the reception he met was not wholly favorable the young pub lisher persevered and finally gained a sufficient number of patrons to justify the launching of a weekly, which he appropriately named the Progress. The first number was issued on Nov ember 18, 1881, and, though of modest size and unassuming, the paper soon be came a recognized fixture of the town. Circulation and patronage steadily In creased, and with them the size and prestige of the paper, and in May, 1887, Mr. Fowler put forth a daily issue. The coal strike which followed caused the abandonment of the daily and tho week ly was changed to a semi-weekly, In which form the Progress ha 9 since been published. In the meantime the publisher gave to the town all tho assistance at his command, both personally and through bis paper, In furthering its progress. He was among the first to subscribe to every local industry which needed money to develop, and, though he took no ostentatious part in doing so, he gave freely to every movemeut which had the upbuilding of Freeland for Its object. He served some years as postmaster of tbe town and in that capacity gave satisfaction to every patron of the office. In conjunction with others ho managed Yannes' opera house for some time and had a number of excellent theatrical ventures produced here. He had a large acquaintance throughout the county and was frequently spoken of In Republican circles as a desirable candi date for office, but refused to permit the use of bis name in local or county con ventions. As a man he was one who merited the esteem and respect of all who knew him. He was liberal in his views of all things and was generous to the extreme in viewing the faults of others. Prob ably no man with an acquaintance as large as his and engaged in newspaper publishing ever gave less offense and had fewer enemies than the deceased. As an employer Mr. Fowler was just and fair in every particular. In 1883 he was married to Miss Nettle Sherman, who, with one son, Howard S., survive him. He is also survived by his mother, Mrs. Thomas C. Fowler, of Riverside; three brothers, Charles L., of Shenandoah; Elmer, of Riverside, and Boyd, of Homestead, and two sisters, Mrs. Charles Mills and Mls9 Maggie, of Riverside. In social and fraternal organizations Mr. Fowler's membership Included Ar butus Lodge, Free and Accepted Masons; Camp 147, Patriotic Order Sons of America; Mt. Horeb Lodge, Independ ent Order of Odd Fellows; Hazleton Lodge, Brotherhood Protective Order of Elks; Hazleton Typographical Union, and the American Legion of Honor. Tho deceased was a director of the Mining and Mechanical Institute, of which corporation he served as vice president for several years and held the positioo at the time of his death. Ho was Also interested in the Freeland Silk Mill Company, the Fir9t National bank and other local industries. More Collieries to Resume. Satisfactory arrangements have been made for the resumption of work at Sliver Brook and Hazle Brook, and the collieries at these places will resume as soon as the mines can bo made ready for the miners. Through National Board Member P. G. Gallagher, acting on behalf of tho men, and Superintend ent Thomas Rlghter, acting for the operators, the differences between the employes and the employers have been settled. Markle <fc Co.'s collieries are being prepared for the miners as rapidly as possible. All the steam men are at work again, also large gangs of men who are engagnd in cleaning up the mlues. By Monday everything is ex pected to be in shape for general re sumption. The employes are exchang ing their old checks for new ones in large numbers every day and perfect harmony reigns between the men and the firm. There Is no change In the situation at Coxe Bros. & Co.'s and Pardee's collier ies. The employes at these work 9 are determined to remain out until their employers agree to resume on reasonable torms. There are no signs of wavering among tho strikers, nor Is there likely to be any, as the amount of their relief orders has been lucreased to more than double of what was formerly granted them. If the Coxes and Pardees refuse to recede from their unreasonable posi tion it will be many months before operations will be resumed at their work 9. Death of Two Women. Mrs. Charlos Goersch died yesterday inorulng at her home on Johnson street, aged 46 years. Death was due to can cer, from which she had suffered for some months. The deceased was an estimable woman and her many friends regret her untimely end. Besides her husband she is survived by two sons, William and Carl, of Allentown. The funeral will take place at 3 o'clock Friday afternoon. Services will be conducted at the residence by Rev. J. J. Kuntz, of St. Luke's Lutheran church. The interment will be made at Freeland cemetery. Mrs. Edward White died at 8 o'clock this morning at her home in Highland, aged 53 years. She is survived by two sons, John and Harold, and three daughters, Mrs. Peter Carr, Mrs. Rich ard Carter and Mrs. James McDermott. The funeral will take place at 9 o'clock Friday morning. A requiem mass will be celebrated at St. Ann's church. Interment at St. Ann's ceme tery. Not a Miner on Jury. The trial of Joseph Palewlcz, of Shen andoah, charged with the murder of Deputy Sheriff Joseph Beddaii during the riots growing out of the coal strike, developed an extraordinary phase yester day. The panel of juror 9 was largely composed of mine workers, who were challenged by the commonwealth. When only ten jurors were secured the panel was exhausted. Judge Marr said it would be necessary to have a special venire and the defense objected to tbe new panel of jurors being summoned by Sheriff Boddall, who is a brother of the murdered man. The court finally ordered the venire to be directed to Dr. A. L. Glllar9, the county coroner, who secured a panel from which tbe remaining jurors were selected. There is not a miner on jury. SENTENCE OF DEATH. Tw# Upper End Murderers' Lives Will Go Out on the Gallows. Motions for new trials have been re fused in the cases of Peter Lenouskey and Victor Zorambo and both the de fendants have been sentenced to death by hanging, sentence being Imposed by Judge Wheaton upon Lenouskey and by Judge Lynch upon Zorambo. The crime which the two defendants will be forced to expiate with their lives was the murder of Anthony Sen nick In a chamber in the Exeter shaft on the night of February 11 last. From the evidence adduced at the trials of the two men it appears that Lenouskey, who was a boarder at Sennick's house, was enamored with tho iatter's wife and plotted to put him out of tho way and then leave the country with the woman and SBOO that Seonick had saved from his earnings. Lenouskey was to be assisted in the crime by Zorambo, with whom he agreed to divide tho money secured from Sennlck. On the day of the murder Lenouskey and Sennick entered the mine on the pretense of looking for work. After Sennick's laborer had left the mine Zorambo went to the chamberof another miner, where he know that Sennick pro posed making a visit for the purpose of stealing powder. When Sennick enter ed this chamber he was attacked by one of the two prisoners with an ax and beaten aud cut and left in a dying con dition. Later in the night Sennick's wife notified his friends that her husband had not returned from work, and a searching party, of which Lenouskey was a member, entered tho mine and discovered Sennick. Lenouskey helped carry Sennick to the foot of tho shaft and was one of the men who was sent with the ambulance to the Pittston hospital, where Sennick died a day or two later without having regained consciousness. Suspiciou was directed to Zorambo and Lenouskey as the men who had perpetrated the crime and when arrest ed and examined separately each made a confession accusing tho other with hav ing done the killing. Both wore tried and found guilty of murder in the first degree. The first case called for trial this week before Judge Wheaton was that against John Smith, Ignatz Shukfs, Michael Y'ushkis, Paul Tomchok and Anthony Wyaczulis, tho five men charged with the brutal murder of Dan iel Sweeney at Hanover, the Eighth ward of Nanticoke, who was beaten to doath with a pick handle on August 5 last. Tbe defendants each made de mands for separate trials and District Attorney Jones at once chose Smith as the one to first face the ordeal. The work selecting a jury was at once taken up and proceeded slowly, each juror called being put through a search ing examination. Those who wero on strike and those who were in the em ploy of tho coal companies during the suspension were promptly challenged either by the commonwealth or the defense and the panel was nearly ex exhausted when tho twelfth man was accepted. The trial is still on. Paul Tomchok, one of the accused men, was put on tho stand and confess ed, saying that he saw Smith, Mike Yousko and Mike Yusku9 attack and kill Sweeney. Horrible Moral Laxity August Ilorne pleaded guilty before Judge Halsey to having been the ruina tion of his two young daughters, and he was at once sentenced to a term of ten years at separate and solitary confine ment in the Eastern penitentiary. Homo Is a married man about 45 years of age and is a resident of Scale Siding, Foster township. One of his daughters Is 14 and the other 15 years of age, both being mothers of young babies. Aftor Home had pleaded guilty Paul Hosier, a young man, was placed on trial, charged with having criminally assaulted both the Ilorne girls. The evidonce against him was 9trong and tho facts brought out in both cases showed that the parties had been living much like beasts and had no conception whatever of the moral laws. Hosier was sentenced to pay a fine of $25, the costs of the case and serve nine months in the county prison. Several Removals. Patrick McCole and Patrick McGee han, two of the Drifton miners who were notified to leave that town, have removed, tho former to the McCole property .on Walnut street and tho latter to Hazleton.

Nerve Force Regarded by Scientists as More Import ant Than the Blood. A $4.00 TREATMENT FREE. 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 the 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 decline, disease and death. Nerve force is chiefly generated in the brain, and therefore in the treatment of all lingering diseases the condition of the brain centers should bo 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 due 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 the system by Increasing nerve force, and have won for Dr. Miles the thanks of thousands of sufferers. Mrs. A. Kronck of Huntington, led., was cured after thirty physicians felled; Mrs. Flora Grnetor of Bristolville, O, alter twenty-two; Jas. It. Wnite, the noted actor, after a score had pronounced him incurable; Mrs. Frank Smith of Chicago, after five leading physic ians had given her up; Mrs. Julius Keister of Chicago, after ten; Mrs. it. Parker alter six teen failed. The 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.
