members were present: President Sam-

ation of the taxes on the glass works
eame up and Mr. Keichline stated why
he presented them for exoneration.
Messrs. Munson and Gephart both al-
leged that members of council had pro-
mised to exonerate that tax. Further-
more Mr. Keichline stated that there
was neither personal property nor real
estate upon which a levy could be made
for the tax. Solicitor Dale controverted
the collector's statement, saying that
the taxes were collectable. Upon mo-

tax an amendment was carried to hold

The people of Bellefonte last Monday
were pained to hear of the death of Mr.
George B. Weaver, one of our oldest
and most respected citizens, which oe-
curred that morning at 10.45 o'clock.
He had been in impaired health for some
time, through disease and age, and his
death was therefore not unexpected.
He was born November 9th, 1818, on
the Weaver homestead 3} miles east of
Bellefonte, on the Jacksonville road, his
age at the time of his death being some
months over 72 years. His parents
were John and Elizabeth Weaver, his
mother haviag been a Poorman, belong-
ing to a well known family of this coun-
ty. His boyhood days were spent on
his father’s farm where he remained un-
til his early manhood, when he came
to Bellefonte and went into the printing
office conducted by Mr. Shugert. Af-
ter learning his trade he went to Phila-
delphia where he worked for some time
in the capacity of printer,and from there
went to Clarion and conducted’ the
Clarion Democrat for some years. His
health failing he returned to Bellefonte
and entered Rothrock’s store as book
keeper where he remained for several
years, afterwards superintending a store
at State College. He was noted for his
skill as a book-keeper. Afterwards he
superintended lumber camps, and finally
settled in Bellefonte and took charge of
books for different business firms. He
was prothonotary of the county for one
Mr. Weaver was married to Mary A.
Rothrock and eight children were the
result of this union. Of them Maggie
died young. The survivors are Ad-
da R. and Jennie B., unmarried; Mrs.
Geo. W. Given, of Philadelphia; Mrs.
J.C. Smith. of Lock Haven; Mrs.
Bates, of Pine Glen; Mrs. Crissman, of

Farar CRUELTY To A Boy.—There
is a rumor on the street that the 11 year
old boy, John A. Morris, whosa death
yesterday was recorded in these columns,
had been badly kicked, the day betore
he was taken sick, by a man named
John Keller, from the effects of which
one of his hips was quitesore until his
death. For a time the boy did not tell
his father about having been kicked, but
other boys did and finally young Morris
stated that it was true. There is also
another report, which is to the effect that
on the day he was taken sick he was se-
verely whipped at school by a teacher
named Weidenhamer, who took him
alone into a room where he administer-
ed the punishment.—Lock Haven

the suffrages of our citizens have be-
can accord. Not fearing that the office
during your incumbency, yet there are
“a few miner matters to which we desire |
to call your attention, so that if acted
upon with the opening ot your adminis-
tration we feel sure they will charac-
terize its close.
As you well know there are many
evils in the police laws of Bellefonte
which should be eradicated and which
if done could not but refleet the highest
credit upon you as an official .
First. The question of profanity on
our streets has long been the talk of our
best citizens. At any hour of the day
the vituperations of some foul wretch
may be heard along our thoroughfares
and under the very nose of the police,
It is a misdemennor and many Pennsyl-
vania towns rigidly enforce the law
against it. Why not Be:lefonte ? Every
man, woman or child who uses blas-
phemous language on the streets of
Bellefonte, no matter in what form,
should be punished as the law prescribes.
Profanity is getting to be entirely too
common a vice with the youngsters of
to-day and the fact that it is at least en-
couraged ; by its not being punished, 1s
a disgrace to the community.
Mr. Mayor strictly entorce the law
againet profanity. Arrest everyone,
rich or poor, blackor white, who is heard
swearing on the streets, and you will be
establishing a precedent of which you
can justly feel proud. Then ladies will
have no reason to shrink from passing
our stores and public places for fear that
the first sound that reaches their ears will
bethe venom from some profane tongue.
Second. When the average pay of our
police amounts to $35 a months, their
services should be bestowed wholly and
unreservedly upon the office which they
hold. One of the most stringent rules
known to the force in cities is that of de-
portment and yet we veritably believe
that in the regulations of our police it is
altogether unknown. ‘When we furnish
them uniforms they should be worn as
they are intended to be and not in the
slovenly manner in which we see them
every day. If our police won't take
more pride in their own condition then
the Mayor should see that their coats
are kept buttoned, brasses polished, hel-
mets and belts worn at all times, and
that they are not slouching along the
streets with their hands rammed to the
| chastizement he received at the hands

——Among the Bellefonters who will
i be seen on the ball field this season will
be John Montgomery Ward, who will
probably play with the New York
League Club, his brother Charles, who
will manage the Washington team, and
Lee B. Woodcock, who has been a suc-
cessful applicant for a “regular” on the
Princeton varsity nine.
——The most complete line of Easter

McMiLLeN's Sagacrty.—It will be
remembered that Mr. C. G. McMillen
kept the Brokerhoff Hotel in this place
some years ago and succeeded in cap-
turing a hotel thief and had him con-
victed and sent to the penitentiary. The
following from the Hotel Gazette of
last week is an interesting sequel to that
occurrence :
C. G. McMillen, proprietor of the
Dickey House, Dayton, Ohio, has a
great memory for faces, and this faculty
proved to be very bad for a ‘beat’ last
week. The swindler registered at the
Dicky House, and the Major instant-
ly recognized him as an individual
whom he had jailed four years
ago in Bellefonte, Pa., for stealing
blankets. The man’s plan of “doing”
the hotels, as explained by Major Mc-
Millen, is somewhat novel. Although
not conducted on a large scale, and ap-
parently not especially remunerative for
a fraudulent scheme, he appears to have
eked out a living by the same. Indeed,
it'seems that his attachment for his pro-
fession was so strong that upon serving
out his time in the penitentiary he im-
mediately resumed his former occupa-
tion, and continued its practice success-
fully until again “called down” by
Major McMillen. The two boxes which
Bowen, his present alias, carries and
represents as his sample cases are filled
with sawdust. After being assigned to
a room and securing a good night's iest
he arises, empties the sawdust out of the
boxes and fills them with blankets, or
what else of value he may discover in
the room. This accomplished, he par-
takes of breakfast and then starts out
with his sample cases. He fails to re-
turn, and later the landlord discovers
that he has been victimized.

JouN HIBLER DEAD.—The sudden
death of M.. Hibler, which occurred at
his late home in Milesburg, yesterday,
Thursday afternoon, between ‘three
and four o'clock, was a shock to
that community. He had been
suffering with heart disease for some
time, but his death was not expected
sosoon. Mr. Hibler was a brother of
Dr. Hibler of this place and was one of
the most highly influential and respect-
ed citizens of Milesburg.

was necessary just above the elbow. The surgi-

The venerable John Ellenberger, aged 89
years, died suddenly on tne second inst., of

had just partaken of a hearty dinner. After
rising from the table he complained of a pain

taking his noon day sleep. His death comes
therefor as a sudden shock not only to his
family but to a large circle of acquaintances
by whom he was highly respected. He lived all
his life where he died, for many years residing
with his widowed daughter, Mrs. Henry Gates,
who kindly cared for his ailing years at his
old home in Gatesburg, where he raised a
large family of children. Hew was particularly
known as a modest and unobtrusive man, yet
having that spirit of independence essential to
manliness. Interment at the Gatesburg cem-

Opposition to the Road Law.
Srormstown, Pa., Feb., 27, 1891.—The Febru-
ore every week. This is somewhat less |
| the one being the equalization of taxes; the
ary election at this place passed off very quiet-
ly. The most exciting topic seemed to be the
two bills pending before our State Legislature ,
| other a revision of the road law framed by a
; road commission appointed by the state, which
| seemed to draw the attention of the tax-payers
in general.
A meeting was ealled on tho 17th at two
o'clock, in the Town Hall, to get the opinion of
the citizens, whother the new law, as framed,
would be a benefit or not.
Capt. Hunter acted as chairman, and read
the proposed law, as framed by the road con-
mission, to quite a large body of taxpayers,
after which the subject was ably discussed by
quite a number, whether it would suit the
wants of the psople vr not. Then the motion
was put before the house,whether the proposed
law would be favored, as framed. The motion
a a
being seconded, the vote was a unanimous no.
On motion that we get up a remonstrance
against the new proposed law, as framed, the
motion was carried unanimously, A motion
was carried that the remonstrance be taken
throughout the entire township, from one
school district to another, by such parties as
were chosen, for the citizens to sign, and then

A Horrible Slaughter.
Parts, March 4.—News of a horrible
massacre comes from Madagascar. Ram-
iasatra, governor of the province of
Belauond, resenting a petition from the
populace to the government to defend
them from cruelties, massacred 278 per-
sons, including men, women and chil-
dren, belonging to the leading families.
The agonies of the victims were in many
cases protracted. Sometimes their limbs
were gradually dismembered, their heads
were sawn off and their bodies were
thrown to the dogs. Many of the wo-
men were outraged. The survivors
were forced to erect a trophy composed
of the heads of victims. The popular
tury has caused the government to an-
nounce that the offenders will be pun-
A Defaulter.
He Gets Away With $40,000 of His
Father-in-Law’'s Money.
PHILADELPHIA, March 4.—A special
to the Presssays, J. W. Bucher, son-in-
law and confidential manager of Ira T.
Clement, one of Northumberland coun-
ty’s wealthiest and foremost business
men, is a defaulter to the amount of
$40,000 or $50,000. The manner in
which the embezzlement was carried on
was largely through the freight depart-
ment. Clement's freight accounts were
left open for week or more at a time and
the freight bills were increased to large
amounts. Before the books were posted
corresponding amounts were entered and
inthis way the shortage is accounted
tor. Bucher has not been seen since
Monday evening, and, it is believed,
he has gone west, A warrant for his
arrest has been sworn out.
A Suiciidal Compact Carried Out.
CincinNaTi, March 4.—Ernest Sal-
linger and Isador Franenthal, students
in the Hebrew Union college, e.tered
into a compact to end their troubles by
suicide, and shortly after 1 o'clock
Wednesday morning they were both
found dead at their boarding house, 495
Race street. The young men pr.rehased
a revolver with which to accomplish
their self destruction. Sallinger shct
himself in the left side just below the
heart. Franenthal then seized the
weapon and fired a bullet through his
brain, dying instantly: Sallinger was
21 years old and lived in Philadelphia.
Franenthal was 19, and his pareuts re-
side in St, Louis.
But Little Known of Our Arctic Pro-
i vince.
For many years public interest has
centred around the most remote of our
possessions, and many are the tales re-
lated of the wonders of Alaskan scenery.
Examining all the data extant to-day,
very httle is found outside the beaten
tracks—tbat is, those portions where the
tourist steamers yearly go. If you look
in an ordinary “Gazetteer,” the result of
your search will be that Alaska covers
about five hundred and eighty thousand
square miles, is rich in minerals and fur-
bearing animals, has large fishing inter-
ests, immense snowy peaks, and huge
glaciers. The charts show its coast-line
in a general way, but the interior is al-
most a blank, This lack of definite
knowledge was the reason our party was
organized.--From «Mt. St. Ehas and
