The election of Principal Rryden for
nnother year broke the deadlock which
at the last meeting of the board, on
Wednesday evening last, tied up all of
the teachers of the high school faculty.

due primarily to the resignation of

leave next week to accept a promising
ro.sltlon in LeOr.'Uid, (Oregon. Mr.
Hockenberry wns on the side that op
posed the election of Prfessr Rryden.
Mr. Gallagher, who was with Mr. Hock
enberry In bis opposition to Professor
Rryden, believing that nothing could
be gained by continuing the deadlock,
even though his side was of the opin
ion that it was in the rlcht. and fore
seeing that possibly the opposition
would elect n successor to Mr. Hocken
berry who would carry the day with
them nnd seat Mr Rryden. decided to
end the tlc-np nnd cast his vote with
the other side. This gave Mr. Rryden
tho requisite number of votes. Presi
dent Hughes nnd Mr. Hockenberry re
mained firm to the Inst and voted
against Professor Rryden.

Plttston, Aug. IS. Despite yester
day's unfavorable- weather the cele
bration of the Italians of this vicinity
at the Aest Plttston fair grounds

large nttendnnce not only of Itnllans
hut of all nationalities. The only dis
appointing feature was the nbtence of
the fireworks, the New York gentle
man who had this feature In charge
falling to nrrlve. It Is announced, how
ever, that tho display will take place
Monday evening without fail. Dur
ing the afternoon n huge number ot
balloons were started skyward. A re
markable occurrence thnt hns prob
ably never happened before nnd may
not hnpnen ngaln within a thousand
years, was the return of one of the bal
loons nfter n half hour's milling. When
the balloon wns stnrted theie wns a
northenst wind blowing which later
changed to n southwest breeze, carry
ing the balloon bnck irfter It hnd been
list sight of nnd almost forgotten. It
fell within fifteen feet of where It
started. The special feature of the af
ternoon wnr the base ball game be
tween the Rrothors' team of Ham
town and the Apple RIostoms. of West
Plttston, which proved a very Interest
ing exhibition for the first three In
nings, after which the Rrothers took a
batting streak nnd securerl Mich n lead

Subscription lifts are helng eirrulat
ed among the members of St. John's
pirlsh here for a substantial token of
esteem to be presented to Monslgnor
Garvey before his departure from this
city for his new field of labor at Al
toonri. About 9 o'clock Saturday night con
siderable excitement was created In
the central part of the city, when a
pistol shot rang out on the still night
air. It came ftom the alley In the
rear of Main street, between Rroad
and William streets, and thither a
large crowd hurried. Thnt no crime
was chronicled was due to the poor
aim of a man named ('awley. who
adopted nn unusually severe method of
Inflicting punishment on n misbehaved
son. The latter had tied from his
father' presmce and wns making
good speed up the alley mentioned,
chased by the Irnte fnthep. The son
enslly succeeded In distancing his
father, however, nnd the lntter, not to
be outdone, pulled 11 revolver and Hied,
hut fortunately missed his mark.

fering the most. The city was In

quite severe. Lnrge trees' were up
