Last Monday the Supreme Court at
Philadelphia reversed the action of the
Clinton county Court and rendered a
decision granting a new trial to Charles
Cleary, who was convicted of murder in
the first degree in the Oyer and Term-
iner of Clinton county, tor the killing of
a police offizer in the town of Renova,
at the close of an evening of hard drink-
ing. Chief Justice Paxson said that
there was no doubt that Cleary was the
man who killed the officer, and his de-
fence consisted almost wholly of evidence
of intoxication at the time ard of pre-
vious good character. In charging the
jury the judge told them that ‘“gocd
character is always of importance, and is
evidence to be duly considered by the
jury, and may turn the scale where there
is a reasonable doubt as to the degree or
grade of the crime.” The jury found
the defendant guilty in the first degree,
and the Supreme Court reverses the
judgement and orders a new trial on the
ground that this instruction gave the
jury no right to infer that the evidence
of good character might create the rea-
sonable doubt which entitles a prisoner
to a safe deliverance.
Couxcrrn PROCEEDINGS.—At a meet-
ing of borough council on Monday
evening the water committee reported
all the pipe laid on Heward street and
the water works and spring put in good

plained of, was a nuisance, and recom-
mended that it be abated ; and also re-
commended the abatement of the nuis-
ance caused by the sewer running from
Allegheny street through the Munson
and Sands property.
The street committee reported a gen-
eral cleaning up of the streets and re-
commended the repairing of pavements
on various streets, and also several new
sidewalks. It was voted that parties
whe are required fo repair and build

The 1st ot June was fixed as the day

steps, porches, buildings, &c., on the
pavements, was unanimously laid on
the table.
—The mother of the infant whose dead
body was found along the river shore at
‘Williamsport some weeks ago, and up-
on which two rival inquests were held,
has been discovered,and she has confessed
that she killed it. The Republican of
that city,speaking of the discovery says:
The self-confessed murderess is Mrs.
Emma Beck, aged about twenty-four
years. Her home is near Warrensville,
but of late years she has resided in Ful-
ton county, Ohio, and for the past
nine months lived here in Williamsport.
Shortly after the finding of the body of
the infant on the river bank Chief Rus-
sell secured a number of clues, which
being ferreted out, pointed conclusively
to this woman Beck as the mother of
the child, and for it she must account.
For some time the Chief was unable to
learn of her whereabouts, but a few days
ago found that she was living with a
family on East Jefferson street. Going
betore Alderman Stead information was
made against her by the Chief, and a
warrant for her arrest was issued. Sat-
urday morning, after procuring a horse
and buggy, the officer went to the house
designated and arrested the woman. A
preliminary hearing was given her be-
tore Alderman Stead, after which she
was committed to the county prison.
She tells the following pitiful tale of
her wrong, her tronbles and her dis-
grace: “Two years ago she went to
live with relatives at Fulton, Ohio, where
her troubles began. She claims to have
been married to a young man named
Beck. Finding herself in an unpleasant
condition she had Beck arrested. The
matter was compromisad by an agree-
ment to pay $300, of which sum she re-
ceived $100 and left Ohio for her Penn-
sylvania home. Her father turned her
off, and she returned to Ohio, and finally
came back to Williamsport, seeking re-
fuge in the hospital. | On the evening of

——One night last week a distressing
accident happened to a party of Wil-
liamsport trout fishers in Clearfield coun-
ty. The party was composed of Walter
Shooter, Frank Warfield and Frank
Sherwood, of Williamsport; Arthur
Pierson, of Lock Haven; Charles R.
Hubbard, of Lyons, N. Y.; James
Akers, Jr., Frenk Kennedy and Fred
Baker, of Philadelphia. About 10
o'clock at night Pierson, Akers and
Kennedy went out of the tent while
the others were asleep, taking with them
a revolver, and in lowering the weapon
it was accidentally discharged, the ball
striking Akers in the neck and passing
between the jugular vein and the wind-
pipe, after which it lodged in the left
shoulder. Akers was taken to Clearfield
where the ball was extracted, and the
doctors say that the accident will not be
The Journal publishes the follow-
ing item of interest to the water drinkers
of Philipsburg: The report is in circu-
lation to-day that a dead calf was taken
out of the reservoir yesterday after hav-
ing remained there for eight or ten days.
As might be expected this rumor lacks
foundation. Ithad its origin from the
fact that a calf belonging to D. W. Holt
was chased by a mule yesterday into
the reservoir and drowned before assis-
tance could be rendered. Charley Bent-
ley, who works for Mr. Holt and lives
near the reservoir, says that it could not
possibly have been in the water more
than twenty minutes, as he had seen it
in the field shortly before the mishap
occurred. No contamination of the wa-
ter, therefore, need be feared.

on Ford Run 200,000 feet of lumber and
a large section of tramway were consum-
ed. The Philipsburg Ledger says that
the fire originated from the slab burner.
Jones’ mill is about 12 miles from Phil-
ipsburg and the Beech Creek railroad
placed an engine and flat cars at the
service of the fire department, the run
being made in 13 minutes. The lumber
yard was well protected against fire by a
system of iron water pipes distributed
through the yard, but they had become
rusty from disuse, and gave way under
the water pressure.

Miners’ STRIKE.—In regard to the
contemplated strike in the Clearfield
and Centre bituminous coal regions, the
Philipsburg Wag-Earner’s Journal, of
Saturday, said: The latest information
we have from adjoining regions ordered
out on strike since the first of May, is as
foblows :
At DuBois several meetings have
been held, the men finally agreeing not
to quit work, and all are now at work.
At Reynoldsville, and other points,
where the men struck for, the Columbus
seale, work has been resumed, the men
resolving to continue work until all the
bituminous coal regions were called out,
and until they were better organized.
been resumed except in Tioga county.
What effect the refusal the DuBois
men to come out, and the return to
work of the Reynoldsville men, will
have on Tioga county men, we are not
of Clearfield and Centre courties, be
not rash. Take no decided step until
those who are recognized as leaders have
taken counsel together, and have re-
liable information of what is going on
elsewhere. It is easy to make a mistake
just now—much easier than to correct it
after it is made. Where 1t may be
thought necessary to suspend operations
at a bank for any cause, consult the
officers of the Excutive Board before
throwing the bank idle. All kinds of
reports are flying— many of them down-
right lies. Be not hasty, intemperate,
unwise. Just at this time coolness is
most required of the miners.
County FARMER. —A terrible accident
recently occurred at the grade crossing
on the line of the Pennsylvania railroad
at McVeytown station Wednesday. Its
victim was G. S. Ruble, of Oliver town-
ship, Mifflin county. Mr. Ruble was in
the act of driving a four horse team
across the tracks with a load of wheat,
preparatory to taking the grain to the
| warehouse on thesouth side of the tracks,
when a fast freight, east bound, came
along. Before he could get out of the
way the engine struck the wagon and
the two horses next to it.
The force was terrific. The two horses
were killed outright and the wagon was
reduced to fragments. Mr. Ruble was
hurled a long distance and received: in-
juries of such a character as to render
his recovery impossible and he died
shortly afterward. The accident is the
first of its kind to occur at the eross-
ing named. Its unfortunate victim was
a well to do farmer who owned a farm
in the township about three miles from
whers the accident occurred. He was
about 45 years of age, a member of the
Dunkard church and a Christian gentle:
A Great CHICKEN StorY.—The
Philipsburg Ledger is responsible for the
following : Mr. Frank Flegal owns a
hen, which, six weeks ago, hatched
eight chicks. Six of them died. When
the survivors were four weeks old the
hen began laying again, and for the
past five days she has been laying wo
eggs a day, and they are honest, fair,
genuine eggs. There is no deception
about it, for theraare no other chickens
in the pen besides the hen and her hus-
band and the two: chicks. In faet Mr.
Flegal has no otker chickens. Thathen-
is a free trader. She can compete with
the pauper hens of Europe and knock
‘em gallery west. This is a pretty stiff
egg story, but you all know Mr. Flegal,
“An honest man—my neighbor—there
he stands,” and he won’t tell a lie under
any consideration. :
William ¥, Boyer was killed on
the railroad at Ramey, Clearfield county,
last Monday morning. The rear wheels
passenger train passed over him, killing
him instantly. His neck was broken,his
chest and abdomen crushed, bis right
leg and! left arm broken and his left
hand mashed. The deceased was 28
vears of age and was a young man of
excellent character. He leaves a wife
and two smal} ebildren.

township, Blair eounty, at a recent maet-

| legislative bodies have made unjust dis-
crimination against the farmers by sev-

porations, they deem it necessary to take
steps to assist each other. For the pur-
pose of establishing confidence in each
other, they will meet at the Loop school-
house, on Saturday, June 7, and will be
addressed by the Rev. A. H. Jolly.

——While Jonathan Gramley, of
Loganton, was serving on a jury at
Lock Haven Tast week, he received in-
telligence of the death of his sister, Mrs.
Hannah Royer, wife of Jefferson Royer,
at Rebersburg, Centre county. He in-
formed the court of the circumstance
and asked if there was any way in which
he could be excused, but Judge Mayer
seemed to think that it would not be
subserving the ends of justice to permit
his ahsence at that time. So Mr, Gram-
lev remained. Mrs. Royer was a little
over 75 vears old.
— The funeral of the late Robert
Richey Bridgens, of Lock Haven, took

many beautiful floral designs, the prinei-
pal one being a handsome combination
of cross and anchor from Mrs: W. P.
Harper, of New York, who when a
child had been a member of Mr. B’s
family. The services at the house were
conducted by Rev. Dr. Nesbitt, of the
Presbyterian church. The funeral pro-
cession was large, and the pall bearers
were Thomas B. Loveland, Charles
Corse, J. W. Harris, G. Kintzing, Jacob
Brown and J. A. Wilson.
——Speaking of coal improvements
in the Philipsburg region, the Journal
of that place says: The branch line
from Munson’s eoal mine to the Mor-
risd ale branch of the P. R. R. is nearing’
eompletion. The difficulty that arose
with respect to passing through the
field owned by Doyle has been at last
overcome, by paying the $240" which
was deemed by the appraisers at Court
equivalent to the damage done to it.
The log track is nearly completed and
during the week the ties wilt be down
and shortly we shall hear the puffing of
the iron horse at Cold Stream. The
prospects of Munson Coal Co. are ex-
ceedingly encouraging ; it is now boom-
ing under the able management of Mes-
srs. Bd and James Munson, and the fu-
ture success of the output anticipated
with these added facilities gives hope of
a busy time.
The busy little town of Farrands-
ville, says the Lo:k Haven Express,
was last week the scene of a successful
strike which began with the moulders,
pressers and other men etrployed in the
fire brick works, and extended until up-
wards of one hundred and fifty men in
the employ of Messers. Fredericks,
Munro & Co. were involved and the
| business of manufacturing and shipping
fire brick was paralyzed. About sixty
men are employed in the brick yard as
moulders, pressers and general laborers,
and the demand made by the men was
for eight hours instead of ten for a day's
labor. The demand was not acceded to
by the firm and as a result all the men
employed in the manufacture of fire
brick at that place quit their work
i and refused to labor until the strikers’
| troubles were satisfactorily adjusted.
{ The matter was finally arranged by the
firm giving the strikers an increase in
wages of from 8 to 10 per cent. and all
hands resumed their work.
