LODGED IN JAIL.
Three Men from Shamokin
in Jail Charged with the
Robbery of J. P. Kant.
On Saturday Chief of Police Gil
lam and Constable Campliell of
Shaniokin und Constable Gcinlier
ling of S'linsgrove brought Win.
and Daniel Kchlcrand Win. Snyder
of Shamokin to the county jail at this
place. They are charged by J.
P. Kantz ot Monroe township with
having burglarized his residence on
Friday night, July 22, and stole
therefrom $100 in money, a govern
ment cheek for $30 und a note for
$100. The men were first arrested
in Shaniokin by the police last Fri
day night. On Saturday they were
brought to Selinsgrove and given a
hearing liefore 'Squire Holmes and
in default of $1000 bail each, were
brought to the jail atthis place.
The prisoners claim that they can
prove an abili. One of the Kehlers
says lie was working mght shift in
a mine and tliat three other men were
working with him. Snyder says
that Dr. Harpel was in his house at
tending his siek wife between ten
and eh veil o'clock and some neisrh
1 Nil's were in bis house later that
We know nothing ot the facts in
the jHisscssioii of the prosecution up
on which they base theircharges. It
npcars from admissions made by
these men that they frequently did
some lishinj; in that vicinity. If
tlieyare the guilty parties, there
will U' no trouble to prove that they
frequently visited Mr. Kantz's
home having quite often eaten at
Mr. Kantz's table and even sold
strawberries for Mr. Kantz in
Shaniokin. The prisoners arc try
ing to secure bail troni Hiainokin to
secure their liberty.
On Tuesday afternoon, Mr. Shade,
a merchant of Shaniokin, who on
tilth stated that he was worth $21,-
000, entered $1,000 bail for the re
lease of William Kehler. He was
accompanied by 'Siuire linger.
J liese gentlemen sav that the Kehler
Imivs and Snvder have excellent rep.
utalioiis at Home ami they have no
faith in the charge against them.
The other Kehler and Snyder will
probably get bail in a day or two.

An Appeal of the Red Cross
To the Pkoi'I.k ok Pennsyl
vania : The Associate Society of
the Red Cross of Philadelphia has,
luring the present war and the dis
tress in Culm, which preceded the
breaking out of hostilities Is'twecu
our country and Spain, licen actively
engaged in its humanitarian work of
ministering to the necessities ot the
men in the field and of thesuttcriug
Cubans. It has sent many articles
of comfort, even of life-saving im
portance to our troops in their vari
ous camps, sometimes in resjRinse to
most touching appeals: the appeal
came and the Society was ready. It
has besides made a large number of
shipments of goods, provisions, cloth
ing, medicines to the Cubans. In
all its work it has been nobly up
held, notably by the people of Phila
delphia, but also by those of other
jiarts of the State and of New Jersey.
During the' blockade and the
siege of Santiago, one branch of its
ministration was necessarily suspend
ed, but tne (Society was not idle,
stores continued to be received, money
to be collected. Among other things
the equipment of a field ambulance
and hospital service lias been under
taken, and already has bo fur pro
ceeded as to be properly rcsrarded as
an aooomplished fact and the Society
will be able to put into the field six
ambulances, with proper5 appurten
ances und u properly equipped field
The fall of Santiago rcoiicns the
opjMirtunity of merciful work in
Cuba. The Society has already
made arrangements to forward sev
eral tons of stores, which have been
c nl v waiting for a chance to lie sent,
and has appropriated in addition for
this shipment, $1,200. But this is
but a drop in the ocean of suffering.
More must lie done. The' Society
. .1 r . i
prop!, inerciorc, io enartcr a
steamer, to sail from Philadelphia
aliout August lath, to convey the
ambulance corps and equipment to
tne trout ami to load the vessel with
stores, such us soldiers may need
and which the government dues not
provide, and withclothing, I'ood.aiul
medicine and such other things as
may Ive required by those wretched,
suffering jHHiple, by whom we en
couraged to resist Spain audtoniake
a struggle for liberty, and whose
suffering has Imtii fearfully and ne
cessarily enhanced by the war upon
which we have entered.
The Society, therefore, appeals to
what has never liecn apiicalcd to in
vain, tothegraiul old heart of Penn
sylvania, the grand old Common
wealth whose foundations were laid
in love to man, irrespective of race,
and asks for contributions of goods
and money to enable it to carry out
its proj-jct to save lives to relieve
suffering to feed the starving to
clothe the naked. ThoSociety makes
this appeal in all confidence. Penn
sylvania hai never yet failed when
culled upon in the name of patriotism
and humanity. She will not fail
