SPECIAL TELEGEAJC TO THI DISPATCH.I
Bcegettstowv, April 19. Considera
ble excitement prevails in the Mnrdocbs
ville field this week. Some time ago a Mr.
Jester, representing the Raccoon Oil Com
pany, leased the Kobert Lyle farm, but,
failing to pay the rentals, Mr. Lyle was
about to release the lands to Mr. Honk, of
"Washington, Pa., when Jester came to him
and explained that the failure to pay was
an oversight, at the same time offering him
the money due.
Mr. Lyle told him he would not refuse
the money, but for him to wait a few days.
In the meantime, he leased the land to
Honk. As soon as Jester learned of the
transaction lie catnered 50 men, and, securing
CS teams loaded with rig lumber, tools,
etc., he started for Murdocksville from
Shannopin, leaving the latter place
about 4 o'clock yesterday morning. In
order to cct there as quickly as possible and
without being seen, he sent a number of men
forward with axes to cut a road through the
woods. They leached the place about2 o'clock
and began the erection of a derrick at once.
They had been at work somo time before Mr.
Lyle discovered them, and when he took in the
situation he telegtanhed Houk at Washington
telling him to come on as Jester and his men
had taken possession of the farm.
Jester expected to be arrested, so he had his
men scattered all round the place in order that
otners could take their places if they were
taken. Houk, however, had not arrived up to
noon to-day, and the men finished the derrick
last night and commenced spudding to-day.
The people are looking ior lively times when
Houk arrives. Jester claims that as Lyle did
not refuse the money when he offered it, his
lease still held good.
MORE MIXING TKOUBLE.
Fiiillipsbure Operators Will Scalo Down
IVIccs to Meet Competition.
rSPECIAL TELEGHAJI TO THS DISPATCTI.l
Phjxlipsbubg, April 19. Owing to a. differ
ence of 10 cents a ton in favor of Punxsntaw
ney, the Beech Creek region operators find
their orders slowly slipping from them. The
loss to tbeni in the last two months has been
quite serious, so much so that they have been
compelled to ask their miners to work at the
same prices paid for digging coal at Pnnxsu
tawney. The following circular was issued
yesterday, and has stirred up a gooa deal of
feeling on the part of the men, who contend
that It would be better for the operators to try
to bring up the price at Punxsntawney, rather
than lower it here:
To the Representative Miners of the Phllllpsburg
Ow Inp to the lower prices now being paid in the
runxsdtawner and contiguous regions lor mining
coal and all other labor connected with its pro
duction. v,c, the undersigned operators of the
1'liilliptburg region, are thereby placed at a great
disadantageaudare not able to compete in the
markets. We therefore ask you as a representa
tive of our miners, to whum we are not able to
give sufficient work by reason of this discrimina
tion, to make the price of raining and other labor
the same as is being paid in these competing re
gions. Already the men are flocking into the organ
ization preparatory to devising means to pre
vent the contemplated reduction a reduction
which, if it goes into effect here, will bring
down the price in Houtzdale, Osceola, Cumber
land, JId., and in all other regions shipping
coal to the East. The circular is signed by
nearlj all of the operators shipping coal over
the Beech Creek Railroad, and by one or two
shipping over the Pennsjlvania Railroad.

Fixdlay, April 19. At 11 o'clock this morn
ing fire was discovered In one" of tho large
frame buildings of the Conastata Glass "Works,

and the flames spread rapidly, consuming the
entire plant, including the big 20-pot house,
packing houses, storage house and several
loaded freight cars standing on the Toledo,
Columbus and Southern road, near the works.
Bowling Green has no fire department, and
nothing could bo done to save the factory,
which was completely destroyed in an hour.
The plant Mas valued at 550,000. and was
owned by Conastata, N. Y.. people. Tht works
were a great success from the start a. tp.it- am

LOCAL OPTION IN OHIO.
One Town That Is Having Any Quantity of
Fan With It.
SPECIAL TELEGBJLM TO THE DISPATCI1.I
AIXTA3JCE, April 19. This town continues
to have any quantity of excitement because of
the efforts to enforce local prohibition. J. C.
Obney had two alleged liquor dealers arrested,
and on his testimony they were convicted and
paid heavy fines. Now they accuse him of the
same offense, swearing to the charge with great
positiveness. Obney asserts that the accusa
tion is made for the sake of revenge.
Owing to the expenditure of money in the en
. f orcement of local option, and the fact that theJ
town dirives no revenue from the liquor busi
ness, the municipal treasury is in a bankrupt
condition, and a heavy floating debt has been
created. It is said an effort will be made
among business men to secure the repeal of
the ordinance, in the interest of better trade
and city improvements.
A BAND OF TRAMPS

graphed to Latrobe for officers. A short time
afterward the robber came to the St. Clair coal
works, where about 30 tramps were collected.
. The men employed at the works caught the
tnicf and tied him, but the tramps made Mr.
Jackson, the boss at the works, hold up his
hands, after which tbey demanded the release
of the thief, brandishing their revolvers and
threatening to kill him if they did not comply,
but the coke men were firm and refused, at the
same time arresting eight others, all of whom
Mill be brought here and jailed this evening.

TSrECIAL TELEGRAM TO TOE DISPATCH.
Ukiostowit, April 19. Charles Lewis, the
12-year-old son of the outlaw of the same name,
who it is alleged was one of the McClelland
town robbers, told a remarkable story to-day,
if true. He says that when the officers searched
the house where the robbers were supposed to
have been surrounded at Markleysburg some
time ago, that his father and the rest of the
gang were concealed in the stable on the prem
ises, and that when the officers searched the
stable the gang escaped by the door, while the
hunters were in the loft. The officers engaged
in the search deny that such could be possible,
however. The boy admits that his father was
one of the gang who did all tho robbing and
torturing and details what he has heard them
tell. He says the robbery of old man Yoder,
near Meyersdale, was by the same party and
that his father participated.
A crowd of thieves, emulating the career of
the bolder outlaws who are now fugitives, are
encamped in the mountains above Jit. Brad
dock, and are- committing depredations night
ly. They broke into the honse of an old Swede
who lived by himself near tho Percy Coko
Works, and who was supposed to have money
in his shanty, and took almost all his portable
possessions, including a valuable watch and
the little savings he had. They pressed a pis
tol to his breast in threatening bis life to make
him divulge where more was concealed.

FOLEY OPPOSES IT.
No Meeting of the State Committee to
Adopt nn Anti-Prohibitory Plank Ho
Doesn't Believe In Meddling.
Patrick Foley, of the "West End, a mem
ber of the Democratic State Committee, was
seen on Fifth avenue yesterday, and when
interrogated as to whether the committee
would, as has been published, call a meet-,
ing for the purpose of taking up the prohi
bition question, said:
"I have received no notice of a meeting;
bnt I saw it stated that one would be called.
If there should be a convention called,
I certainly shall oppose any med
dling with the matter at issue.
Messrs. Harrity and Cassady, of Phila
delphia, have no right to bring the question
of prohibition within the party lines. The
Republican party made it an issue, and I
think we will let them fight it out and have
the picnic We will be satisfied to let them
"Why should we oppose the amendment
and favor the side of the liquor men? "What
did they ever do for ns? Look how they
swiped Chauncey Black for Beaver in 1886.
Do you suppose that we will take np their
side of the qnestion after this treatment?
The State Committeemen dare not adopt an
anti-prohibitory plank. I am in favor of
letting every man in the party vote on the
issue as his conscience dictates."
