Mysterious Death at Shohola Siar day Night. 1-yrita Smith Found Drari In Her Room. The Other1 Occupant Man Who Claims He was to Marry Her Next Day. Something of a sensation was aroused in the town Monday by The report that parties from Shohola were here seeking the offices of the coroner to hold an inquest on a body of a woman dead from a pistol Rhot. Coroner Goigor immediately re paired to the scene of the tragedy and summoned n jury to investigate the cause of death which subse quently found a verdict as follows : " That Lydia Smith came to her death from a pistol shot by un known hands at the house of John Wohlfarth between the hours of 8 o'clock p. m. Sunday evening and 7 a. m. Monday. Signed, Lorenz GKiGER.Coronor. Georhe Haas, Foroman. John Wohlfarth. W. J . Sadler. William Sadler. L. J. Swezey, George P. Haas. The coroner from statements made by different ones doemed it his duty to bring the man down and lodge him in jail, which was done Mon day night. From the somewhat chaotic utterances of that official we glean the following as to the facts of the case. Early in July the wo man came to Wohlfarth, who lives sorno three miles from Shohola and keeps a boarding house, to work as a domestic, claiming to bo. a widow with throe children, two of whom remained in New York and one a boy some 9 or 10 years old was with her. Matters ran smoothly until about a week prior to her death when a man appeared, whoso rela tions to her scorn to have boen of an intimate nature for they occupied the same room. Sunday night it is stated they did not rotire until very late, and Mon day morning when called did' not respond until repeated efforts were made when the man came to the door and said the woman had. shot herself. She was found lying on the bod with a pistol grasped in her right hand and a bullet hole in her right, tomplo. Her companion stated that he heard no shot and was una ware of her condition until awaken ed by the rappings on the door of the room. . He further stated that he had giv en her 1250 specifying the kind of money, and that they were to be married that day. ' The boy above alluded to, seemed to corroborate a part of this statement by saying that he saw the man have a large sum of money, the day previous. Careful search however failed to re veal any trace of any sum whatever, In possession of either the man or woman. Both seemed to be penni less. The man whose name was not definitely learned, as he was called Smith and Shultz, and Herman was released from confinement Tuesday afternoon by the Sheriff, who had no warrant, or commitment or au thority to detain him. It seems passing strange that a jury composed of six presumably intelligent men, aided even by a Pike County Coro ner, should, after learning the nak ed fact that the man was alone in the room with her when she was shot, and as he stated with his pistol, ac cept the statement that he heard no shot fired and that she had killed herself, and render a verdict as above recorded. What may be the true inwardness of the matter may never be known. It may be pre sumed tliat the verdict, which is in the handwriting of one utterly in- coimiotout to draw a paper of such moment, expresses the real seuti. ment of the jury, but it is also in comprehensible how a jury with or dinary intelligence and unbiassed judgment could bo stultify the sit uation as to render a verdict which entirely exculpated a man who cer tainly was in a position domuuding a soarcliing scrutiny before a com potent tribuuul. We have spoken MILFORD, TIKE elsewhere of excrescences which make the body politic sick, and, if the above recital which we assume to lie true, coming as it does from an official tif the County, is not sufflci ent warrant for our assertion, and ample evidence that we need some ohange In the administration of bur affairs to save ns from the scorn arid contumely of law regarding" com munities, then we acknowledge our selves to be ignorant of what con stitutes good local government. The libel, still going the rounds of the press that recently in the case of the negro Siglar, our townsmen wore with difficulty restrained from trampling on law and justice by lynching him, emanated from the brain of a callow youth who cares more for the cheap sensations he can create than he does for the reputation of our citizens, and the'statoment, if true, would bo in striking contrast to the apparent utter lack of desire on the part of those invested with authority, to properly investigate what may be ahenious crime.

The Methodist Church people of this place are making some neodful improvements to their edifice, the principal one being enlarging re modelling, and beautifying the Sun day school room. The school un der the assiduity of Mr. Neff and his forvont assistants required more room to comfortably accommodate the increased number, hence it becomes necessary to take out a partition and add a room, which will be connected with the larger room by means of folding doors. Now windows, columns, and steps will also be added, and when completed according to design the room will be a comfortable pleasant, and attrac tive homo for their Sabbath sohool. Pint Hill Farm. G.

Hurst and hia plcnsant wife, of Layton, to be present with feminine assistants at an informal pot-pie supper given by that" gentle man Thursday evening. The grounds wore handsomely illumin ated, the compnny charming, and the " raised pot-pio " with its con comitant chicken and endless vari ety of too tempting adjuncts, made all feel that however free silver might affect the country the " un limited coinage " of pot-pie wns wholly free from any objectionable results, and moreover indispensable to satisfy an inward longing, which editors are not presumed to gratify at will, and only when some pitying friends bring in a woodchnck and a peck of turnips in payment of two yearly subscriptions. After the supper thoso who could indulged in dancing but such frivol ity was incompatible with the con dition of the eldor contingent who found mora comfort aiding the Cu ban revenue by the consumption of Havanas, and mildly wondoring whether the host in anticipation of a cold winter had not boen moved to supply all the needy families in Sandyston with a feather bod apiece. They are not satisfied over there with moderation for we found on starting home our wagon had been loaded with luscious grapes, and we have since been living in a wonder if was not after all a premeditated scheme to reduce the Republican majority in Pennsylvania by ono. A Fine service. The Antiphonal service hold in the Presbyterian cburch last Sabbath evening which was due mainly to the work of the Y. P. S. C. E. at tracted a'large audience. Great in terest was manifested both in the service and its impressive lessons. It was rondered by two choirs one at the organ and the othor in the gallery in the opposite end of the Church, which engaged in respon sive song. The singing reflected great ' credit, on' the respective chgirs, each, .of which rondorod their parts with fine expression in a very correct manner, and with an effect that was plainly visible. TJio subjects selected in the responsiva readings wore woL adapted to arouse a religious fooling, and the hearti ness with which the large congrega tion entered into the spirit of the oc casion showed an appreciation of the effort to stimulate the thoughts, and infuse a new lifo and energy in tho hearts of the peoplo. Such a service undoubtly conduces to a de votional feeling and when followed by an effective address, cannot fail to be productive 01 an awakening in terest in religious matters. Gold In Carbon. Gold is said to have been ' discov ered in Carbon county in Perm For est township. Assays have boon made of the gold quartz taken from a shaft and slope sunk by the Penn Mining Company which show from $5 to 44 to the ton ore. There is a well defined vein along the slope which has boon followed to the depth of BO feet, and it is intended to sink the slope 20 feet more. The company expects it will then show very rich ore sufficiently so to war rant the erection of a proper plant for treating it. He Didn't Want Any Haiua.

Mr. Bryan will visit the 4th Con gressional District of New Jorsey.as that is the only part of the State the Popocrats expect to carry. This district is the favorite stamping ground of the Populists and Farm ers' Alliance, and they claim all the Republicans have gone over to free silver. No doubt desperate efforts will be made to carry it for A. W. Cutler, who is a Farmers' Alliance Democrat and has been a perennial and persistent office-seeker, on all sides of the many political issues A strong gold sentiment is developed in the district and sound money clubs are bein established. To pre vent a stampede in this, direction which is strongly in evidence.and to avert a Waterloo in the district it has boen decided that Mr. Bryan shall make several speeches Mah- lon Pituey, tho Republican candi date is not at all discouraged and bus strong hopes of being elected. Ho will make a fight with full knowledge of the situation, and his confidence has boen strengthened by the inducement of doubt which prevailed at the convention which nominated Mr. Cutler. . , . . Hill Is lu the Saddle. Tho latoat information concerning the rather peculiar situation in New York State is, that the State Committee will not depose Thachor from the tisket. Hill sooms to have carried the committee, but there may lie trouble yet. Thacher says ho will vote Bryan on the ground of "regularity," but he does not in dorse the Chicago platform, now the question is who will vote him, tho gold Democrats because he does not bolieve in the platform or the sil verites because ho does believe in Bryan, or both, or neither. The American Agriculturist states two propositions as follows : Sugar is a better proposition than silver. 1 here is more inonev for American farmers iu protected beet sugar than in tree silver, and it says if those who diiter with it on those points will investigate thorn us thoroughly as they have free silver, they will agree to them.

Nc. 48. DISTRICT POLITICS, -sj) The Domocratio primaries were held in Carbon and Northampton counties last Saturday and the con ventions on Mondny. Full tickets wore nominated ns follows: In Carbon, for Congrass, Laird H. Bar ber! representative, Jerry N.Wedor ; register and recorder, Harry S. Swartz ; treasurer, Dr. J. C. Crea mer; county commissioners, John O'Donnell and George Engian. In Northampton, for representatives, Dr. J. S. Hunt, Dr. Alfred Brown and W. H. Leh ; prothonotary, L. F. Giering ; recorder, W. H. Werst, register, Jacob F. Spoor j treasurer, Charles W.Gromnn ; commissioners. W. R. Engle and David Solt. Tho latter county elected delegates to the Congressional Convention, which mot at Stroudsburg Thursday Sept. 24, at ono o'clock, and they are said to be for Mr. Mutchlor but he evidently has no use for tho Con gressional nomination this year, thinking porhnps that it will be r. moro agroeable possession at some future time. From the fact that Laird H. Barber was successful in Carbon and as he is woll known to be a strong supporter of the North ampton Statesman, it would seem that Mr. Harts chances for the per simmon are not bright. That fruit is very astringent until after a frost and this year even the Barber pole may freeze bofore it can be used to socurethe prize. Mr. Mutchlor is on top and the nomination will so at his bidding which fact also pres. ages no good for Mr. Hart. If the nomination domes to this county it will not be because Mutch lor has forgotten or forgiven tho al loged wrong perpetrated two years ago in depriving him of it, but be cause the chances for an election are so remote, or the opportunity to de feat Pike s candidate too temptine. and so put her on the shell for a gen eration to come. By all the rules of party usago Pike is entitled to two terms and if she is not accorded her rights, some body should fool the weight of her righteous indignation. Meeting of Stat Committee. A fully attended meeting of the Republican Slate Committee was held in Philadelphia Tuesday. Re ports were received from every county in the State and the tenor of them was that there are sixteen Democrats for McKinley to each sil ver Republican. Promises were made of largely increased majori ties in all Republican counties, and Philadelphia was put down for one hundred thousand. In the few usually Domocratio counties the ma jorities it was claimed would be re duced below those of 1894. Chair man Elkin in his address said the committee desired to eclipse the highest water mark of all the great majorities given by the party in this State. A Fine Display of Stuffed Birds. James Cunimings a professional taxidermist, whose place of business is ifi Chicago has recently brought on a largo collection of stuffed birds and animals to his father's home in Westfall. There are over ono hund red specimens all beautifully and naturally mounted. Three largo eagles killed last week near his re sidence wore added to the interest ing and attractive display. He has also several doer heads, and skins of different animals as evidences of his skill in tho art. It will amply repay to visit and examine his work. Colt on the Milford Links.
