PITTSTON MAN SHOT DEAD Killed While Responding 1 to a Call for Help. Railroader on HisWay Home From Work Listens toCries for Assistance and Then Meets Sudden Death. Anthony McHugh, of Plttston, a freight conductor on the Lehigh Valley Railroad, was on his way home from work about 4 o'clock yesterday morning when he saw two men fighting on Main street, In that city. One of them was crying for help, aud McHugh weut to his rescue. When he reached the mon one of them pulled a revolver and began firing. Two of the bullets struck Mc- Hugh, one entering Ills heart and the other his right leg. As McHugh fell dead several other ineu ran up. Among them was James Kearney, a young man. Just as he ar rived ho was shot In the abdomen and sank to the ground in an unconscious condition. He was removed to the hos pital. McFlugh, it Is said, after being shot was robbed ol his month's pay, amount ing to 8100. Ho was a prominent Demo cratic politician. The police have not yet obtained a clue of the men who were fighting. Contest Hearings End. The farcical hearings in the contest instituted against Representative B. J. Ferry by ex-Sheriff James G. Harvey came to an end Saturday morning at Hazleton. The sub-comuiittee appoint ed to take testimony in the contest has returned to Harrisburg, and nothing more will be heard of the case until a short while before the legislature ad journs, when a report will be presented In which the election committee will recommend that Harvey be seated. This will give the ox-sheriff an oppor tunity to draw the salary for the full term, although the contest failed to show that the slightest fraud had been committed or that Mr. Ferry had won by any than legal and honest votes. Many of Harvey's former friends are surprised that he should become a party to such a nefarious scheme to loot the slate treasury, but those who know say that ho spent heavily to find out that the Fourth district did not want him at Harrisburg and that his contest was gotten up with the sanction of Quay and Penrose to reimburse him for his outlay. A Useful Invention. George Hudock, the East Main street saloonist, has invented an arrangement which Is bound to meet with a ready sale when it is placed on the market. It consists of a combination measure aud funnel and is designed for the use of saloonists and others who are fre quently required to measure liquids and FREELAND, PA., MONDAY, MARCH IG, 1903. then pour the contents Into bottles. The present method is to fill the pint, quart or gallon measure, then place a funnel in the neck of the bottle and to pour the contents of the measure into the bottle through the funnel. Frequently the funnel 19 mislaid and when found much of the contents of the measure are often spilled during the pouring process. Mr. Hudock's device combines the measure and funnel in one piece. As soon a9 the measure is filled the contents can be transferred at once to a bottle. It not only saves time and labor but pre vents the loss of any of the contents, as the liquid can go nowhere else but into the bottle. The Inventor has taken stops to have his arrangement patented, and those who have been allowed to see it and observe its practical working predict that It will be in great demand when its merits become known to those who re quire such an article. Out-of-Town Deaths. Mrs. Ellen Stephenson died at Lans ford Thursday night and was burled there this morning. The deceased is survived by her husband and two child ren.

DAVID FRFF KENNEDY'S 5,51 FAVORITE SH'SS ft V s BB pri \g thin paper and address Dr. REMEDY gi.Tr r "° MK THEATRICAL. The beautiful rural and rustic comedy drama "One Night in June," will be the attraction at the Grand opera house to night. This splendid play was written by the well-known versatile character comedian, VV. J. Holmes, who truth fully plays the part of Silas Devey, an honest Vermont farmer. This drama cannot be classed with the every-day "rube" shows of the 'b-gosh variety. Its story Is different. This play tells a sweet story of old New England life, with the funny saying of its funny folk. The piece has a strong blending of comedy and pathos, with several charm ing pastoral scenes introduced and Is altogether a lesson in life of the plain country people, which instructs while It entertains the play goer who witnesses it. Many new and splendid specialties are introduced during the action of the piece and there is not one dull moment in it. X X X Wm. A. Brady's "Way Down East," which will be seen for the second time in Freeland on Thursday evening, comes with a record of five exceptionally suc cessful! seasons to Its credit, including 532 performances In New York city, 248 in Boston, 190 In Chicago and 160 in Philadelphia. It is perfectly safe to say this is a record achieved by no other play of recent years, and 19 a tribute attesting the great merit of the piece. Particularly is this true at our present season of life when the spice must be variety. Certain it is the simple truth ful 9tory of right and wrong, brighten ed by honest humor, appeals to ail clas ses of people. There Is universal sym pathy for the wronged woman, who takes herself and her woes out into the driving snowstorm. There is hearty response to the melodies of the Tillage chdir and there is close sympathy—even affections—for the good people who bring the narrow New Hampshire life into view. The company is in keeping with the merits of the play, and a complete production is assured. X t X "My Friend From Arkansaw" was played before a small audience Friday evening. The show deserved better patronage, but as it was a new one in this section it failed to draw as well as expected. On a return date the com pany would receive a more geuerous reception. XXX Koene, the celebrated magician, will astonish the patrons of the Grand opera house with an exhibition of his skill ou Saturday evening. DRIFTON.

While at work In the shops last week William Smith, of Uazleton, had a finger cut off by a bar of iron falling upon it. Legislature's Work. Of the 375 bills presented in the senate and 745 in the house, only fifty-two have reached Governor Pennypacker. Of these the governor approved thirty-one, vetoed three, eleven were recalled and seven have not yet been acted upon. None of the numerous bills growing out of the miners' strike, last year, has reached the governor, although the United Mine Workers have a lobby at work for these measures. Three of them have passed the house, and efforts are being made by the mine workers to hurry them through the senate. They are the Garner eight-hour bill, the Mc- Whlnuey employers' liability bill, and the bill amending the anthracite mine inspection act of 1891 so as to provide for the election by the people of boards of examiners instead of appointment by the courts.
