Wire tHE MivLiTiA.--The condition
and possible outcome of the muddle
which nearly resulted in the disbandon-
ment of Co, B.5th Reg. N.G. P,,
stationed here, has been the talk of the
town ever since the Guard returned
from Punxsutawney. The fact that the
commissions of both captain and 1st
lieutenant expired last Friday “evening
lent more interest to the situation, for it
was readily conjectured thatan election,
with the company in such a turmoil,
would afford an opportunity of showing
the bitterness that had been engendered.
On last Friday evening the line offi-
cers of the regiment met in Altoona to
elect a lieutenant colonel and major,
Col. Amos Mullen, of Bellefonte, and
Major R. C. Elder, of Lewistown, hav-
ing served out their commissions. Both
Mullen and Elder were candidates for
the former’s office, Maj. Elder having
been elected on the first ballot. The
names of captain W. F. Reber, of Belle-
fonte, and captain R. C. McNamara, of
Bedford, were presented as nominees
for the office of major and two ballots
were taken before the latter was elected.
The election of the officers of Co. B.
was held here Monday evening, at 8
o’clock, under the supervision of Col.
Theo. Burchfield and Maj. Stayer, of
Altoona. There was quite a gathering
of military notables in the armory when
the men lined up preparatory to the
vote, and among them were Lt. Col.
W. Fred Reynolds, of the governor's
staff ; Col. Theo. Burchfield, Maj. Stay-
er, S. H. Williams, quarter master and
his Searg. Thos. Benner, and adjutants
Foster and Quigley all of the 5th Reg.
Div. Com. Searg., R. F. Hunter; 2nd
Brigade Com. Searg. Frank Williams
and ex-Lieut. Col. Amos Mullen.
After Searg. Rider formed the line
Col. Burchfield read the general orders
from brigade head-quarters calling for
the election of a captain and nomina-
tions were in order. The names of
‘Wm. F. Reber, L. T. Munson, Amos
Mullen and Frank Williams were pre-
sented, then the colonel made the an-
nouncement that it would be useless to
elect a man to the captaincy who had
not had some experience in military
service. This practically left Mr. Mun-
son out of the field and as both Mullen
and Williams declined to have their
names used there was really only one
candidate in to vote for. The result of
the vote was Reber 39, Munson 12.
General orders calling for the election
of a 1st lieutenant were then read and
the names of Wilbur F. Reeder and
Hugh S. Taylor were presented. Col.
Burchfield again interposed an objec-
tion and announced that the nomina-
tion of Mr. Taylor for Ist lieutenant
would not be accepted at that time, be-
cause he had been dismissed from the
Guard on June 27th. Some one moved
that the nominations close and a vote
followed, resulting in the re-election of
Lieut. Reeder by 42 to 8.
The office of 2nd lieutenant, made
vacant by the dismissal of Mr. Taylor,
was not filled owing to the fact that no
orders had been issued to that effect, but
the election will be held next Monday
The failure of the line officers to re-
elect Lt. Col. Mullen was possibly more
of a disappointment to his friends here
than to the Col. himself. He did not
expect to be re-elected, but in his re-
tirement the guard has certainly lost
one of its most efficient officers. Col.
Mullen had been attached to the Guard
ever since its organization and aside
from being thoroughly conversant with
the military code, is a man whose fine
personal appearance made him an orpa-
ment to any parade ground. It is to be
hoped that he will receive an ap-
pointment on the brigade or division
Tae BAND TOURNAMENT A Go.—Al-
ready Mr. Meyer, the director of the
Bellefonte band, bas had a number of
favorable replies to the invitations sent
out last week to bands in Centre and
Clinton counties to take part in a great
tournament to be held at Hecla park, on
the line of the Central railroad of Penn-
sylvauia, Thursday, August 30th, 1894.
The tournament will be held and two
prizes will be contested for. 1st prize, a
$50silver cornet ; 2nd prize, a $30 silver
A pleasing feature of the occasion
will be all the bands playing the same
tune at the same time.
Dinner, supper and all kinds of re-
freshments will be served on the
ground at reasonable rates. A perma.
nent organization will be formed look-
ing toan annual tournament. Band
concerts and dancing will be part of the
day and evening programe.
Any persons desiring to know the
particulars regarding the tournament
can do so by addressing W. T. Meyer,
Bellefonte, Pa. It was originally in-
tended to hold the tournament: on Sep-
tember 6th, and in our last week’s issue
we gave that date as being the one de-
cided upon, but later information from
the projector is to the effect that the
date will be es given, August 20th.

into trouble with a young Smith from
Milesburg. They scrapped in front of
Blackford’s restaurant on Bishop street,
where Smith threw a whole brick at
Moore’s head with a force that would
undoubtedly have seriously hurt him
had it hit him. Both were arrested and
on the way to the lock up Moore be-
came unruly, a scuffle between him and
officer Gares resulting. The prisoner
fell on the step in front of Grauer’s
residence and the officer fell on top
of him, the fall breaking Moore’s nose.
A doctor was called and dressed his in-
jury after which he was taken to jail
where friends called for him later. Tt
was necessary to hand-cuff him to keep
the bandages on his nose. A rumor
found many believers here next day
that Moore kad died from his injuries,
but he is getting along all right.
Squire Samuel J. HERRING 1S
DeADp.—There came in the death of
Samuel J. Herring, which occurred at
his home near Penn Hall, in Gregg
township, on Tuesday afternoon, the
end of a life that had been an extremely
useful one in the community in which it
was passed. ’Squire Herring had been
in ill health for months, stomach trou-
bles having impaired his strength so
much as to make him almost an invalid
for quite a time previous to his death,
but with that hope that retuses to real-
ize the nearness of death his friends
looked for his recovery and were shock-
ed when the end came.
Deceased was born at the old home-
stead, in Gregg townsbip, December
17th, 1828, and was the son of George
and Margaret Herring. In 1854 he
married Elizabeth Lohr, their union
having been blessed with six children,
three of whom are living, as follows:
Horace B., Mrs. Emma J. Shook, and
Mrs. Susan C. Hosterman. He took
charge of the homestead farm in 1862
and managed it successfully until the
time of his death.
Mr. Herring was perhaps the best
known man in all of Penns valley and
one in whom every one recognized an
excellence of character rarely found. He
was a broad minded, liberal man whose
wealth of knowledge extended far be-
yond his particular vocation. Confirm-
ed in the belief of Democratic princi-
ples he was one of the leaders of his
party in the county and seven times in
succession was he elected Justice of his
district. He was an active member of
the Lutheran church and was buried in
Heckman’s cemetery yesterday morning
at 10 o'clock. Rev. A. G. Wolf officiat.
TROUBLE IN THE PHILIPSBURG COAL
REeGions.—The excitement which had
been stirred up among the miners in the
Philipsburg region over the attempt to
operate the Coaldale No. 4 mine at the
40 ct rate culminated in the burning of
the tipple there last Thursday night.
The mine was the only one in the re-
gion working at the old rate and the
strikers, being unable to induce the men
to quit, resorted to such lawlessness as
arson to cripple the operation so that
work could not be carried on. Besides
the tipple several mine cars were
burned and the loss to O. Perry Jones,
the owner, is considerable. The tipple
will be rebuilt at once.
The mob was made up of several hun-
dred men from Ramey, Houtzdale and
Osceola, armed with guns, clubs and
revolvers. It was in command of a
man named Walker and on reaching
Coaldale they surrounded the homes of
the working miners and with their
yells and stone throwing frightened the
inmates almost to death. Then they
broke open the scale house and with
two barrels of oil, taken therefrom,
saturated the tipple and set it on fire.
" Thestrikers were defiant and held a
mass meeting on the spot even after the
appearance of the officers. They con-
demned all miners who worked for less
than 50 cts. a ton and burned the effects
of a Hungarian who had just moved
there and had been unable to get his
furniture into a house.
Sheriff Cardon sent a deputy down
from Clearfield who with Capt. Simler
and Mr. Jones, of Philipsburg, went
out to the mine early Friday morning,
and arrested Walker with a number of
the other leaders.

well known in this county. A widow
and six children survive.
The remains were brought here yes-
terday morning and taken on to State
College, to the home of deceased’s sister,

SMOTHERED To DEATH IN A CORN
BiN.-—Ambrose Beyer, the seven year old
son of A. W. Beyer, climbed into a bin
full of shelled corn in his father’s mill,
in Tyrone, on Tuesday afternoon, and a
halt hour later was taken out dead.
The bin was on the third floor of the
mill and the corn was being run down
into the hopper on the floor below.
The boy’s legs were drawn into the fun-
nel and the corn above closing in over
him smothered him to death. The
boy’s legs stuck out through the end of
the funnel in the floor and gave the first
warning of his awful predicament.
THE OPINION OF A PHILOSOPHER.—
Mr. Shannon | McCormick, whose age
is about 77 years, is among the interest-
ing citizens living near Pine Hall. He
is moreover, considerable of a philoso-
pher, and, though a farmer, does not
believe that the agricultural commu-
nity are entirely justified in the com-
plaints in which they indulge regarding
the low price of wheat. While wheat
is low, he says that almost twice as
much can be raised now per acre as for-
merly. He says the farmers are receiv-
ing a living price for butter, eggs, corn
and potatoes, that, on the whole, their
condition is tolerably good. What have
other farmers to say of this ?—Magnet,

A CHALLENGE TO Miss NORRIS. —
Since publishing the account of the lit-
tle girl at Fillmore, who made such a
creditable record in the hay field lately,
we have received the following letter
from a correspondent at Dix Run who
tells of the wonderful work in building
a load of grain accomplished by a
young lady of Unionville.
Mr. Eprror.—Seeing a local last week about
the expert hay building of a little Miss at
Fillmore, I thought it a good time to report to
your paper a thrilling, and much more expert
piece of work on the part of Miss Susie Stover,
a little girl of Unionville, who built a load of
wheat for John G. Hall on his farm at Dix
Run. Mr. Hall had difficulty to get some
wheat off a hilly piece of ground,as no one
could build a load to stay on the wagon. Miss
Susie bet she could build a good load and re-
main on the wagon down the declivity to the
When the load was on, both wheels were
chained and brakes drawn tightly, and then
with several men on each side of the load with
forks to steady it, the wagon moved down to
the barn while Susie s miling, and with folded
arms, had the laugh on them. It was well
done and old harvesters skulked away and
hid. One WHo Lert.
A Wagon RAN Over HiMm.—John-
son’s heavy dray ran over James Mec-
Suley, who lives on Logan street, on,
Wednesday afternoon, and crushed his
breast so terribly that there is danger of
his not getting over it.
The unfortunate man had been down
at the Central rail-road station and as he
is badly crippled with rheumatism he
asked Curt Johnson, who was just
driving away from the station, to haul
him home. Mr. Johnson told him he
would do so and wanted to help him up
on to the seat, but Mr. McSuley prefer-
ed to sit on a box in the wagon. He
rode along until Brockerhoff’s feed store,
on Bishop street, was reached and then
he tell off, the back wheel of the heavy
loaded wagon passing over his breast.
He was picked up and carried to his
home where he is now suffering great
agony. It issupposed that a jolt of the
wagon threw him oft.
