CLEARY To HANG.—On Monday af-
ter hearing arguments on both sides
Judge Mayer, at Lock Haven, denied
Charles Cleary, convicted of killing
officer Paul, at Renovo, a new trial, and
ordered him into Court for sentence.
Upon his appearance, after some re-
marks of a kindly nature to the young
man, the Judge said:
“Charles Cleary, the sentence of the
Court is that you be taken to the jail
from whence you came, and on the day
appointed by the Governor, you be
hanged by the neck until you are dead.
May God haye mercy on your soul.”
Cleary received the sentence calmy,
showing no emotion whatever. Ilis
face flushed, perhaps a little more than
usual, but that was all. He walked out
of the court room with the Sheriff as
composedly and independently as ever.
If his punishment is not commuted to
imprisonment by the Board of Pardons

Mr. J. M. Bunnell, of the firm of
Bunnell & Aikens, of Belle-
fonte, at Milroy, Mifilin coun-
ty, was ths scene of a happy wed-
ding in which his daughter, Miss Sarah
M. Bunnell, and Mr. T. E. Mayes, of
Philadelphia, were the principals. A
large number of their immediate family
ard friends were present to witness their
marriage. The ushers, Dr. J. L. Gal-
breith, of Philadelphia, and Mr. Clyde
Roper, of Lewistown, escorted the
guests into the picturesque parlor to t
strains of Mendelssohn's ‘Wedding
March, played by Miss Aikens, of Belle-
fonte. Then came Robert L. Bodine, of
Philadelphia, as groomsman, ard Miss
Catherine Kassler, of Milroy, as bride’s
maid, after whom came the bride and
groom. They proceeded to one side of
the room, where an arch of pines had
been previously made, taking their posi-
tion under a horeshoe covered with mis-
letoe. The ceremony was performed by
Rev. J. W. White, of Milroy. Excellent
music was rendered by Prof. W. T.
Meyer, of Bellefonte.
The bride’s dress was of cream corded
silk, trimmed in ribbon, with veil, and
she carried a beautiful bunch of Mare-
chal Neil roses. The groom was attired
in conventional black. The bridesmaid

Last Monday two accidents occur-
red in Tyrone, one proving fatal. A
scaffold from which workmen were try-
ing to raise a heavy irom pipe broke
down, seriously injuring James Swin-
del, of Pittsburg, and A. Porter Thomp-
son, a laborer of Tyrone. In the rail-
road yard, yardmaster Adam Wolf-
gang was run over and killed by an
engine that was doing shifting work, |
and Robert Worley,local freight conduc-
tor, was badly injured.

announced that on the first day of the |
scheme, out of 2,200 pupils about one- |
half made deposits. The children
brought in their pennies, dimes and
quarters, altogether aggregating nearly
$500. It was considered a great suc-
cess. Of course it is not expected that
the deposits will be kept up at this rate,
but none fear that the plan will not
work. It should be tried in Bellefonte.

——That the Methodists are making
encouraging advancement in Penn's
Valley is indicated by the following in
the last issue of the Conference News:
Methodism is moving along steadily:
Atv Spring Mills and Aaronsburg the
church has been quickened. At the
former place a young man was convert-
ed and united with the church. At the
latter place our church loses a large
Methodist family, Bro. S. H. Deihl hav-
ing sold out and is moving to Colorado.
Millheim is in the midst of a refreshing
season, several have been converted, and
the pleadings of the penitent are still
heard at the altar.

Nature Lad neglected to put a tail on it
and had even been so stingy of her fa-
vors in that line that there was not even
a stump or any sign of a place where
the tail ought to be. This absence of

the calf’s appetite, although it must nec-
essarily feel somewhat embarrass.d

SerLEY HoPKINS' DEATH WARRANT.
—Next to the last act in the Hopkins
tragedy was the reading ot the death
warrant which reached Sheriff Cooke
from the Executive office at Harrisburg
last Friday evening and was immediate-
ly read to the prisoner by the Sheriff.
The following is a copy of the fatal do-
J. A. Beaver, to Rubert Cooke, Jr. Esquire,
High Sherif’ of the County of Centre. or your
successor in office, sends greeting,
Waereas, At a Court of Oyer and Terminer
and general jail delivery, held at Bellefonte,
mn and for the county of Centre, in November,
i889, a certain William S. Hopkins was tried
upon a certain indictment, charging him with
the crime of murder in the first degree, and
was, on the twenty-eighth day of November,
A. D., 1889, found guilty of murder in the first
degree, and was thereupon, to wit: On the
thirtieth day of November, A. D., 1889, sen-
tenced by the said Court that he, the said
William S. Hopkins, be taken hence to the
jail of Centre county, whence he came, and
from thence to the place of execution, and
that he be Langed by the neck until he is
Now, therefore, This is to authorize and re-
quire you, the said Robert Cooke, Jr., High
Sheriff of the county of Centre, as aforesaid,
or your successor in office, to cause the sen-
tence of the said Court of Oyer and Terminer
and general jail delivery, to be executed upon
the said William 8S. Hopkins, between the
hours of 10 a. m. and 3 p.m., on Thursday, the
twentieth day of February, A.D. 1800, in the
manner directed by the seventy-sixth section |
ofthe Act of the General Assembly of this |
Commonwealth, approved the thirty-first day
of March, A. D., 1860, entitled “An Act to con-
solidate, revise and amend the laws of this
Commonwealth relating to penal proceedings
and pleadings,” and for so doing this shall be
your sufficient voucher.
Given under my hand and the great seal of
the State, at Harrisburg, this second day of
January, in the year of our Lord one thou-
sand eight hundred and ninety, and of the
Commonwealth the one hundred and four-
teenth. CHARLES W. STONE,
Secretary of the Commonwealth.
In this unpleasant call upon the
doomed man Sheriff Cooke was accom-
panied by Dr. Smith, of Howard, as a
witness, and in reading the warrant he
seemed to be more affected than the
one to whom it imported such direful
consequences. Hopkins stood it with
his usual indifference, and is said to have
made a derisive remark about the great
seal of the Commonwealth attached to
the warrant. For several days after
this incident he kept up his usual
bravado. Hesaid that he wanted his
body to be taken to some public place
where he desired everybody to come and
see it except the Meyers family of Phil-
ipsburg., He also expressed a wish that
the Sheriff should provide a good turkey
dinner for him on the day of the execu-
tion. He boasted that he proposed to
enjoy himself as long as he could and
did not intend to worry about anything.
His intention was to make a speech an
hour long from the scaffold if the Sheriff
would give him that length of time,
and he claimed to be engaged in writ-
ing a true statement and confession,
which he said was nearly completed,
and which he would give to the newspa.
per that would pay the highest price for
it. This reckless demeanor was con-
tinued until Tuesday when he broke
down and gave way to grief over his de-
plorable situation, expressing a desire to
Itissaid that his two sisters will be
on from Rochester in a few days and re-
main here until atter the execution, and
that his brother will be here at the time
of the execution and take the body to
the family home at Rochester.
The warrant directs that the exccu-
tion shall take place between the hours
of 10 a. m., and 3. p. m., but it is likely
that the Sheriff will get the unpleasant
duty off his hands as early in the day as
he decently can. The legal number of
persons will be admitted in the jail
yard to act as witnesses of the execution.
If admissible the yard would be crowded
as it is said that applications for the
privilege of seeing it already number
over four hundred.

a big majority of the people of this

to believe that the people will be sat-

Tae CURTIN FATLURE.—There were
sore inaccuracies published in some of
the county papers last week in regard to
the Curtin failure. There was no as-
signment made to ex-Gov. A. G. Cur-
tin and Constans Curtin, or to any one
else, nor do the liabilities amount to
$200,000. The claims having any mag-
nitude have been entered on the judg-
ment docket, the judgments being thre e
in number, the first in favor of John P.
Harris, trustee, for the First National
Bank of Bellefonte for $12,200; Wm.
Shawley, collector, $300; J. A. Confer,
collector, $558.16, and Beaver, Gephart
& Dale, $1000—in all amounting to
$14,058.16. The second judgment is in
favor of John M. Dale, trustee, for John
Curtin, $10,000; Roland Curtin’s es-
tate, $8500; James A. Beaver, $1000;
Mrs. Jane Whiteman,$300, and John
L. Potter, $200—in all $20,000. The
third judgment is in favor of John M.
Dale trustee, for 76 creditors in this
county, Philadelphia and elsewhere,
amounting to $41,590.42. These entries
of judgments, footing up $75,648.58, in-
clude the liabilities of the firm, except
some minor claims among which are
said to be about $1500 due to hands that
had been employed at the works. The
Sheriff on Tuesday put up the bills for
a sale of such effects of the firm as he
may be able to levy upon under the
The failure of the Curtin Company
may be considered an industrial disaster
to the neighborhood in which its works
were so long operated. In it descent
from the elder parties its was one of the
oldest establishments in this region and
gave employment to many people
through a long course of years. It was
in 1810 that Roland Curtin, an immi-
grant from Ireland, father of ex-Govern-
or Andrew G. Curtin and progenitor of
all the Curtins of this county, built a
forge on the site of the present works
1n Boggs township in the Bald Eagle
Valley. In 1818 in connection with
this forge he erected a furnace for the
making of charcoal iron which he
named the Eagle furnace, and these
two plants afterwards grew into the Ea-
gle Iron Works of Curtin & Co. as they
now exist The village that grew up
was called Curtin and the post office
Roland, and the elder Curtin moved
his residence from Bellefonte to his
works in 1821. In 1830 he built the
rolling mill for the manufacture of bar
and rod iron and also the flour mill.
The same year he built the Martha
furnace, the old Fagle furnace being
abandoned in 1836. His sons James,
John and Roland, jr. were associated
with hin in business in 1828, the old
gentleman retiring in 1842. The
Martha furnace being abandoned in
1849, in that year the old Eagle furnace
at Curtin was rebuilt, which continued
until the present time to turn out large
quantities of charcoal iron most of which
was converted into blooms by the forge
and into bar and rod iron by the roll-
The present firm, which met with the
recent reverse, was composed of grand-
sons of Roland Curtin, sr., and consist-
ed of A. G. Curtin, jr., James B. Cur-
tin, John G. Curtin and H. R. Curtin.
They took charge of the works in April,
1877, and conducted them under the
various vicissitudes of the iron business
during that period, up to the time of
their failure. They labored under the
disadvantage incident to charcoal iron
being in many of its uses ‘superseded by
Bessimer steel. They honestly believed
that the protection afforded by a tariff
would help them out of their difficulties,
but in this they were grievously disap-
pointed. Whether the works will be
started again and by whom is entirely

dence, East Water street. The jessa-
mine bush is on the north side of the
house and is covered with flowers on
this the 8th day of January. The most
remarkable thing aboutit is that the
flowers are more perfect and healthier
