have been cleared up : :

cutting his head and loosening several
teeth. The jury returned a verdict of
guilty, but recommended him to the
mercy of thecourt. Not yet sentenced.

for his last offense.
Commonwealth vs Jas. M. Thompson,
charged by Nettie Bathgate with in-
flecting too severe punishment on her
while a student in the South Philips:
burg schools. Defendant went to school
late one morning and she was sent home
for an excuse. When she returned Ler
teacher said she threw the paperin an
insolent manner upon the desk. When
she was told to prepare a lesson she re-
monstrated with the teacher and he
whipped her, She claimed the punish-
ment was so severe as to raise a perma-
nent lump on her neck and cat her
finger until it bled. The jury returned
a verdict of not guilty and divided the
Commonwealth vs Alfred Devine,
Richard Riley, Martin Riley, all of
Pailipsburg, assault and battery. Pros-
ecutor, William H. Besoner, claimed
ti.at the defendants assaulted him and
he received rather rough handling. De-
fendants denied the statement and en-
deavored to show that the prosecutor re-
ceived his injuries while under the in-
fluence of liquor. A piece of defen-
dant’s lip with hairs from his mustache
was offered in evidence to prove that he
had fallen on the pavement at a point
a considerable distance from the place
where the assault is supposed to have
been made. Verdict, not guilty and

robberies of stores in that borough,
nearly a carload of booty having been
found on their premises, defendants
plead guilty and sentence was suspand-
ed. Each entered into recognizance of
$200 for his appearance at the August
term. Attorney W. KE. Gray seizad
this apparent opportunity to work in
one of his clients on the Court’s funny
streak of clemency before it worked off,
but when he had Wm, Hanna plead
guilty to stealing and receiving stolen
goods the Court fell down on him with
a sentence of costs of prosecution, return
stolen property, and two years impris-
onment in the western penitentiary.
Hanna had robbed some smoke houses
and clothes lines here last Winter while
the Philipsburgers had burglarized
stores and the P. R. R. freight station
in that place.
Commonwealth vs Clarence Davis,

of $100 and one year in the county jail.

postponed. She had an opportunity to
clear herself some time ago, but she
would not leave the brofessor. Yester-

Tae TIME For HoLDING THE COUNT Y
CoNVENTION CHANGED.— Perhaps the
mest important bit of news that has
been imparted to the Democrats of
Centre county for some time will be the
announcement that hereafter the annual
county convention will be held in June
fnstead of August, as heretofore.
At the meeting of the convention in
August 93, a resolution was adopted in
which it was resolved to change the
time for holding the convention from
August to the second Tuesday in June.
And also to change the hours for hold-
ing the primaries so that they would be
held on the Saturday preceding the sec-
ond Tuesday in June and remain open
from 8 o’clock until 7 o'clock p. m. To
make such a change the rules of the
party required that the resolution adopt-
ed by that convention must be; ratified
by the Democracy of the county in mass
meeting assembled. Such a meeting
was called for last Tuesday evening and
though it was not largely attended there
were some representative Damocrats
present from every section of the coun-
ty. Chairman Ellis L. Orvis called the
meeting to order and aiter’stating the ob-
ject for which it had been called read the
new apportionment of the county into
Districts which shall elect conferees to
the Congressional, Judicial and Senator-
ial conferences. It was made by a meet-
ing of the county committeemen held
in Chairman Orvis’ office at noon, on
Tuesday, and is based on the presiden-
tial vote of 1892; under the rules allow-
ing each five hundred Democratic vot-
ers to constitute a district.

The places of meeting for the various
districts has been arranged as follows :
1st district to meet at Millheim ; 2nd at
Penn Hall; 3¢d at Centre Hall ; 4th at
State College ; 5th at Port Matilda ; 6th
at Philipsburg ; 7th at Howard ; 8ih at
Bellefonte ; 9th at Bellefonte.
The apportionment is a very fair one,
the difficulty being experienced in find-
ing the required fiumber of voters in
contiguous precincts, so that no very
great distance would have to be traveled
to the meeting point of the various pre-
cinets constituting a district.
After the reading cf this a permanent
organization was effected. C. M. Bower
E q., was elected chairman and Chas.
R. Kurtz and Geo. R Meek secretaries.
The chair then called for a free and
open discussion of the advisability of
ratifying the resolution and Messrs,
Orvis, D. F. Fortney, W. C. Heinle and
others talked in favor of the change.
All the argument advanced, however,
carried the most trifling weight with it
and the main thing that was said was
“that no one can find any reason for
not changing the time.” As there was
no good reason given for making the
change weinferred that some one wanted
it done and their wishes were gratified.
Under this rule the campaigns will be
so much, longer, tiresome and expen-
sive. Following is a copy of the reso-
lution which passed without a dissenting
At the County Convention which met on the
9th day of August, 1892, and also "at the Con-
vention which met on the 8th day of August,
1893, the following was adopted .
“Thet we recommend to the party, when in
mass meeting assembled, that Rule No. 2, of
the Rules governing the election of delegates
and the county convention, be amended to
read as follows to wit :
The election for delegates to represent the
different districts in the Annual Democratic
County Convention shall be held at the usuat
place of holding the general election for each
district on the Saturday preceding the second
Tuesday of June in each and every year, be-
ginning at three o'clock, p. m., on said day.and
continuing until seven o'clock p. m. The
delegates so elected shall meet in County
Convention in the Court House, at Bellefonte,
on the Tuesday following at (12) twelve
With this done nothing remained to
do but pass a motion for adjournment.

earnest and every Democrat present
| seemed to realize that we will bave a
* great fight on this Fall.

Williamsport Co., to make a drive from
Leck Haven every Fall but a recent de-
termination has abandoned the plan
and hereafter owners will have to drive
their logs clear through or run jthe risk
of losing them.
——A very interesting game of base-
ball was played at State College last
saturday afternoon between the Col-
legians and the Altoona State League
team. The College boys had the game
all their own way up to the sixth 1n-
ning, when Altoona presented a new
pitcher who was a little harder for them
to hit. He held them down while the
visitors cracked Mattern’s delivery for
enough to tie the score with ten runs
each. The Altoona club had to leave
at the end of the ninth inning with the
‘| score still tie and the umpire gave the
game to the home team.
——A special from State College to
city papers states that Charles E. Beug-

at court. He is charged with genera-
ting a noxious and deadly gas at an
entertainment given for the benefit of
the State Collezz band. Prof. Buemer,
of Pittsburg, was lecturing when a ter-
rible stench arose and a search for its
cause resulted 1n the finding of bottles
of chemicals in student Beugler’s pock-
et. There were sixty other students
there also. The case was heard before
‘Squire Thompson at Houserville, but
has since been settled. The students
boycotted all the band men, who are
laundrymen, and it resulted in 8 com-

THE ANNUAL Crass FigaT.—On
Tuesday morning the Freshman and
Sophomore classes of The Pennsylvania
State College indulged in what is known
as their annual fizht to see which class
is the stronger.
Sometime during Monday night the
Freshmen put up a forty foot flag pole
on a field, just north of the College, and
with it well greased and from its top
their colors proudly floating they waited
until morning to see how the surprised
Sophomores would take the audacious
proceeding. Of course the older men
started at once tu take it down, but the
pole, bravely defended by the Freshies:
stood and when the time was up the
Freshman colors still waved.
During the scrimmage the boys were
pretty badly used up, their clothing was
torn in shreds and many of them were
carried off in an unconscious condition
but as soon as time was up the best of
feeling prevailed and the Freshmen
were happy because they were able to
keep their colors from being hauled
down by the oldzr classmen.
