The William A. colliery of the Lehigh Valley Coal Company, at Old Forge, was the scene of a shooting affray early yesterday morning which resulted in the death of one man. The victim wp.s an Italian laborer, Anthony Guiseppe. He had only been In this country about, nine months. When the miners' strike was declared he went out with the other laborers. He had not been seen in the vicinity of Old Forge for some weeks past. At an early hour yesterday morning a peddler discovered his dead body lying in the roadway just outside of the barricade of the William A. colliery. There was a bullet wound in his throat. A doctor who examined the body said death was umta'ibted'iy Instantaneous. The coroner of Lackawanna county was notified and gave a permit for the removal of the remains to Scranton. The coal and Iron policemen at the William A. colliery have had some narrow escapes ever since they went on duty. Only last Friday a number of sticks of dynamite were thrown over the fence surrounding the colliery, with a view of blowing up the colliery office and the guards. Fortunately, the explosive was discovered before It did any damage. In the stillness of the night shots were fired through the fence at the special officers. One of the policemen exhibits a coat where a bullet passd through one tight last week. Monday night firing at the guard was renewed. It is though that the men behind the barricade responded and the Italian fell dead from a bullet fired from a Winchester. The friends of the dead man claim he was an Innocent victim. Their version Is that he was walking In the roadway near the colliery feiw" when he received a bullet intended fo: another. When the coroner completes New Breaker at Shenandoah. Supt. Thos. Balrd of the Kehley Run colliery .operated by the Thomas Coal Co. at Shenandoah, awarded the contract to H. K. Christ, of Mahanoy City, the well known con-' tractor. The new structure will be a combination breaker and washery, with a capacity of 600 tons of coal a day. It will be located east of the old breaker and about 400,000 feet of lumber will be used In its construction. Work on the new breaker will begin at once unless the mine workers object. Rev. Ure left this Newark, N. J., where ! several weeks. morning for he will spend Ike's Store News. ; ft. - Rags OF the low value. ' value. , belo w -Mt. his investigation some of, the deputies employed at the colliery may be placed under arrest. There was much indignation among the foreign residents over the shooting, and they made all sorts of threats. The guard at the colliery was doubled last night, and Sheriff Schadt swore In a special posse to preserve order. When darkness came 1,000 people collected in the vicinity of the mine, and an attack would undoubtedly ha;e been made on the guards had not the sheriff's posse kept the crowd in check. A telegram was sent from strike headquarters to President Mitchell lr. the west yesterday that there was no truth in the reports that the strikers were weakening. On the contrary, the situation was stated to be about the same as when he left, and that the miners were putting up a noble fight. Three of the big coal companies in this region now claim that they have all the engineers and pumpmen they need. The Delaware and Hudson Company has a surplus of engineers. There Is no question but that the companies are gradually getting back a great many of the engineers and pumpmen who quit their services June a. The firemen, however, are stauding firm. Not a single fireman who went out in the Wyoming region has returned to work, and It is said that none have made application for work. WOMAN SENDS MINERS $10,000 Mrs. Stone Hopes They Win Fight Against Operators. New York, July 2 The striking coal miners have received $10,000 from Mrs. Montgomery Stone, widow of the iron king, Sebastian Stone. In a statement she says: "The strikers ought to win their strike, Their work is dangerous In the extreme, and it should be well paid for. I am convinced that they have right with them. I might send them a message to the effect that I sympathized with them and hoped they would win, but this would put no bread in the ir.out'.is of their starving wives and children." Gas Mains Laid. With the exception of a connecting link fifty feet in length, the work of laying the pipes for the new gas gas mains has not progressed as far as it will be carried for several months. This link Is under the P. & R. track on Market street and this connection will be made as soon as the P. &. R. Issues the permit.

While at work on the plans of the new sewer, in his office at his home at 124 East Avenue yesterday afternoon, Issac Kemble, Borough Engineer and senior member of the Item Publishing Company was stricken with heart failure. Doctors Bartho and Williams were at once summoned and by their prompt treatment restored him to consciousness In a short time. In conversation with one of the physicians we learn that the attack was brought on by Indigestion and that, as a result ' of it, one of the blood-vessels in the brain has likely been ruptured. While Mr. Kembel Is In a greatly Improved condition to day, he is not yet by any means out of danger, and bis condition Is being closely and carefully watched every moment, , ; f Mr. Kemble has been a resident of Mt. Carmel for years and Is known to almost our whole population and one and all hope for his speedy recovery. REMARKS OF AN OLD TIME PLAYER One of Monnt Carmel's old-time base-ball enthusiasts has consented to furnish ns with a few observations after each game These observations will appear under the head of "What the Old Rooter Saw". For various reasons the "Old Rooter" does not want his name used but you may be sure that his observations will be Interesting and instructive notes on the game.and If they sometimes seem to censure someone or do not give each one all the credit that he thinks he deserves, do not become incenced, each will get his share. However, players, you want to be on your toes, for the "Old Rooter" was once a player himself. Ed. News. What The "Old Rooter' Saw. The need of some good hard prac tice before July 4th. The lack of team work. The lack of propper coaching when men are on bases. That Yank Halemon and Billv Vaughn are the surest and heaviest j hitters that we have, with Knoblach getting there fast. That Wright is the headiest player we have. That Josey can't be beat behind the bat. That it might be well for all the players and everyone offially connect ed with the games to read Keach's Guide. We are playing American League Rules. That I will have more to say about the team Saturday. OLD ROOTER. Kiefers Improvements.

Defeated Yesterday Afternoon by the Score of 12-8-An Exciting Game How the Runs Were Scored. The game betweeen the Reliance and Bateman's Colts yesterday afternoon was exciting from start to finish. The visitors won and their winning was due alone to fourerrors by the Reliance at critical moments and to the giving by the umpire of a Datter his base on a balk when the rules clearly state that when a balk is made toward a base the runner shall advance, and therefore this batter had no right to his base and the visitors were, as it proved, donated a run. However we were were beatan.and that because Glrard-ville battsd our pitcher for six hits and five runs in the first two Innings and because the team as a whole failed to play up to their usual standard. The game opened with Glrardvllle at the bat. The first three men up hit safely.the fourth was given a base on halls ana the filth made another hit and there were two runs scored and three men on bases. Right here the scoring stopped for that Inning. three men batted; afterwards but not one of them scored. A hit, a balk, an error and another hit netted two In the second. In the third Houck retired and Kilhefner went Into the box. One hit, two strike outs and a fly ball tells the story for mat inning ana everyone breathed easier. In the fourth and fifth the visitors failed to score but in the sixth Carey was hit by a pitched ball.McOor-tnick went out to Wright to Hale man, GallagherandPurcell hit safelv. Kennedy was out on a fly to Knob- lack, setley juggled with John t'oyle's grounder and when the next man up, M. Coyle struck out, there were two more tallies in the visitors' column. They did not score in the seventh but in the eighth they made live runs on two bases on balls, three nits ana an error In left centre. Wright called on Vaughn to take the ball and. Vaughn, Knoblach and Taylor were all there and neither got it. The ninth, was one, two three and out. In the Reliance's opening Inning layior was out on a bunt hit direct-lyln ffont of the plate, Vaughn made a clean hit to left out was put out stealing second, Setley hit for two bases, Haleman reached first and Setley scored on an error by Hanney. Knoblach was out on a fly to center. Tlie second was barren of hits or runs. In the third Taylor was hit by a pitched ball but was out trying to steal second. Vaughn hit safely to left, Setley the same trick, and Haleman came up with a smile and slammed her out for two bases and scored Vaughn and Setley. One hit but no runs tells the story of the fourth and in the fifth Haleman made another of those two-baggers Knoblach lilt a beauty to rlirht, Wright drove a safe one between snort ana thira ana both runners scored. Josey and O'Neil were easy outs ana Wright was left on base. Kilhefner and Taylor went out on flies in the sixth, Vaughn and Setley hit safely, Haleman's hit scored both Knoblach's hit put Haleman on third and Wright was an easy out and we had two more on our list. Ia the seventh Josey went out on a hot liner to the pitcher which he neatly fielded and threw the runner out at first, O'Neil was outon a fly to short and Kilhefner hit a beauty to deep centre. ' It was clearly good for two bases and Kil got them. The return of the ball was faulty and Kil saw a chance to reach third and ran. He reached the bag all right but in trying to avoid over-running it he fell over the bag and tore several liga ments in his left leg very severely. He had to leave the game and will not be able to play for several weeks at least. In falling he rolled off the bag and was put out just when he had an elegant chance to score. - Three hits netted ns a run in the eighth and in the ninth there were no hits and no-ruus and the game was over with the score 12-8 it favor of the visitors.

A somewhat new and novel request was made of of his honor, Judge Auten, by Attorney S. B. Boyer dur ing the progress of a short session of court Monday morning. Mr. Boyer was defending Jacob Helm, aged fifteen years, of Northumberland, The defendant was charged with larceny and when the case was called Mr. Boyer stated that his client would enter In a plea of guilty if his honor would agree to. suspend sentence. Mr. Boyer, however, did not want to see the boy go entirely un punished and requested the Judge to make an order of court to the effect that the boy should be given a good switching and that it should be specified that Mr. Boyer was to apply the rod. The learned barrister stated that he was fully qualified to do the job and would perform the work to the qneen's taste if the court would grant bis request. District Attorney Cummlngs was against such a scheme. He stated that he desired to be lenient and just but that the boy had been convicted of a like crime last Febriary and that sentence had been suspended at that time on the boy's promise that he would do better in the future, but the promise had been broken. It was shown by a number of witnesses that the defendant was a very bad boy and J udge Auten signed the necessary papers to send him to the house of refuge. TWO GAMES FOR THE FOURTH Bloomsburg's base-ball team will be here Friday for two games with the Reliance. Base-ball has become the national game of the United States and what better way to spend part of the day than going to see the national game.

THIRLWELL & Co The Day Bids Fair io be the Quietest Mt. Carmel has Seen on This Day for Years Past Small Display of Fire-Works. From all Indications the Fourth of July wiil be very quietly observed throughout the coal regions this year. Of course.the "small boy,A will have hla fire-crackers, but he will not be supplied with the same abundance as heretofore,' The strike has greatly curtailed the purchase by the local dealers, who anticipated that little money would be spent In celebration this year. Never since "Old Liberty" proclaimed American Independence on that all important July 4th, 1776, has the outlook been so cheerless: for young America to have a good time and lots of fire-works. In the former years the streets were all ablaze on the evening of July 4tb, hundreds of dollars being spent annually In the pyrotechnic dlsplav. The working class of people, not knowing how long they will be forced to live upon what money they nave on hand, will be very judicious- in Its expenditure. Kilehefner's Accident. thV: ' ha-! The accident to Kilhefner . la seventh inning yesterday deprives u' of the services of a pitcher who ha-been sought after by several team." this year and is always la great de- j mand by every team In this vicinity. 4 With Kilhefner and John to depend upon the Reliance has a pair of pitchers that are hard to beat, but with either of It, them out of the team r- is greatly handicapped. The friends. . A of the Injured pitcher are legion ia Mount Carmel, every lover of baseball being an admirer of Kilhefner, and every one hopes to hear that he will soon be out agalii and on the rubber for the Reliance.
