New Year's morning the solegraph
wires brought the sad information that
‘8S. H. Eyre, the contractor and builder
had died at his home at Jersey Shore
Mr. Eyre was the builder of the Palmer
hoonse which will be opened in a few
weeks, and was well known in Patton.
The announcement of his death will be
a surprise and regretted by very many
people here who knew him. Mr: Eyre
has done considerable work in Patton
during the past year in the line of
building. His principal contract was
the erection of the Palmer bonse,
now aboot completed. and which will.
stand many years a monument to the
bailder. (ther houses erected in Pat-
‘on by Mr. Eyre are tie residences of

The firemen’s ball in the opera house
on New Year's evening, was socially’
and financially a success. The young
folks expected 2 good time on that
evening, and they undonbtedly had it.
Nothing was lacking. The room was
nicely decorated with evergreen, flags
and bunting, and the manic was excel-
lent. The cakes and ice cream were
fine and al etiquette and formality was
dispensed with: this conld not-help but
make it 2 very enjoyable affair. About
3 o'clock the first sot wasn formed and

Opera Louse was taken ap by a merry
crowd of dancers and continued so an-
til midnight. Everybody was happy,
even the baid heads in the gallery could
be seen squirming on their seats and
shuffling their feet. The cake walks
were a feature of the evening in which
all hands joined. The Anest cake was
chanced off and the lucky number
drawn by Mr. Beck of the Hotel Beck.
Several cakes were put up at auction
and knocked off to David Dale, Wm

alized by the fire company clear of all
expences was about $70.00. This
amount wil! he ample to pay the bal-

Monday was an important day at
Clearfield. It was the occasion of the
granting of licenses, and Judge Gordon
took the oath of office. He was sworn
in by Prothonotary Bloom at 10 o'clock
Monday morning and at 1 o'clock was
introduced to the bar of the county by
Judge Krebs, whom he succeeded. The
new Judge responded in brief and ap- «
propriate remarks and soon after was
engaged in the most vexations and la

granting licenses. The number of ap-
plicanss in Clearfield county was un-

The Big Octopus at New Or-
‘Enthusiastic Gathering at the
Opera House. :
© Mr. Bradley of the- SE Mine Workers
: - Addressed the Hosting.
The miners meeting in the opera
house on Thesday night, waz attended
by nearly ail the English speaking
miners, with a fair number of Huns
scattered through the hall Fnthosi:
asm and good nature prevailed all even-
ing. The meeting was called for the
purpos: of receiving the report of the
delegates, who were sent from Patton
to the convention held in DuBois, De
cember 27, 1302. After the rence” was
read and acted opon, Mr. Hradiey the
was introduced, and in: a speech
ted to the satisfaction of the men pres
ent, the necessity of thorough organi-
zation. In his remarks “he stated -
that coal contd not be forced on the
market through ‘cheap digging. Ceon-
sumers would not buy the product of
the mines for the sole purpose of dump-
ing them in the river because they
could buy them cheap. His idea of an
organization is, fo make it national.
and he says a strong eftort will be
made to bring every American mirer
into the already strofig folds of the U
M. W. A not for the purpose of insti
tating strikes, but for seif protection,
and practically. for the protection of
the operator, who knows that in many
cases cutting the price of digging coal
- isonly temporary. He claims that when
the Bell, Lewis & Yates company or
dered a reduction, who claimed that
Pittsburg coal was in sharp competition
. with them in the Buffaic market, it
was uncalled for, and a great injustice
to the miner, and tha: it was not true
that Pitteburg coal. was shipped into
that market at all, in fact he powitively
asserted, and proved it by the operators
own organ. that coal in Beffalo was
quoted five conta higher the day the
eut was made, than one year previous.
Mr. Bradley is a ffaent talker, and in
all his remarks did not show the disposi-
_tion of the demagoyme, but advised con-
servatism, and saked the miners to al-
ways be reasonably in all their demands
After Mr. Bradiey tock his seat, the
meeting went into executive session
The question then was asked: Which
organization will we join. the Miners
Union or the K. of L's? After conski-
erable debating it was finally left to a
vote, and carried unanimously, that
tre miners of Patton attach themselves
mt a body tw) the Knighta of Labor
which is the necret branch of the Uni-
ted Mine Workers of ‘America The
questicn of ssmi-monthly pay. was also
discussed, on which a vote was taken,
instructing miners to petition all oper
ators fo conform with the law, and if
‘any refuse, to forward a copy of the pe-
tion to the State Factory Inspactor.
whose duty it is to prosecute all oper
ators who decline to secede to the de
mands of their employees.
The miner; of Patton having attach-
ed themselves to the Hastings check:
‘weighn ans fund, an aoditor, treasurer
and secretary was elected to represent
the miners of this section on that board.
The nen-English speaking miners pres-
_ent had two interpreters in the meet
ing, who made everything plain to their
countrymen, and who agreed to abide
by the decision of the English speaking
miners present. ;
Just before the meeting closed, Mr.
Richards member of the board of the
Hastings checkweighman's furd took.
the stand; and in ‘a fiften minutes
speech emphatically denied the charges
that he had embezzled $1000 from the
Glen Richie Co-operrdive society. This
accusation was first saarted in Patton,
and Mr. Richards, in his remarks, sta-
ted that the charge was as false as
hades and as hlack as the bottomless
pit, and pruved to the satisfaction of
the men present thut the malicious le
was stazted by the party he publically
accuyad of being the maligner, through
nace and enmity, and if it was not
_ promptly stopped, the malicionsly in-
clined person wonld be compelled to
appear before a ‘bar of jastice. The
speaker was enthusiastically cheered.
The meeting then closed to meet
