FOUST-MAKIN. -- In Johnstown, on Wednesday, February 10, 1892, at the office of the officiating magistrate, by W. C. Bland, Esq., Robert N. Foust and Eliza J. Makin, both of this city.


The following ticket nominated by the Republicans of Conemaugh, to be voted by them next Tuesday: Burgess, J. J. Shaffer; Justice of the Peace, Flair Alexander; Council, W. N. Good (three years), Daniel Good (three years), Jacob Giffin (two years), George Empheild (one Year); School Directors, John A. Keiper, F. J. Custer; Judge of Elections, F. J. Custer; Inspectors (one to be voted for), W. M. Gouchnour, Irvin Good; Collector of Taxes, A. E. Amigh; Auditor, E. R. Stewart.


Ebensburg Mountaineer.

Mr. John Finn, of Ebensburg, was in Johnstown Saturday, completing arrangements to take charge of the Johnson House at Walnut Grove. Mr. Finn, for a number of years, has been connected with the Cambria House, Ebensburg, and has considerable hotel experience. He will keep a good house and no doubt will receive a fair share of public patronage.


Captain David Mills Camp, No. 293, Sons of Veterns, [sic] and Captain McCloskey Post, G. A. R., of Gallitzin, will hold a camp-fire in the Knights of Labor Hall on the evening of Washington's Birthday. An address will be delivered by Ed. T. McNeelis, Esq., of this city.


Ed. T. McNellis, Esq., sat to-day as auditor in the estate of John Kinney, late of the Second Ward, who was found dead in bed in the Twelfth Ward some time ago. John J. Maloney is administrator. He has in his hands about $500 which goes to decedent's father, Thomas Kinney.


That is the question which is at present agitating the minds of our neighbors to the exclusion of everything else. It is to be voted upon next Tuesday. The indiana Gazette favors a Poor House; all of the other papers in the county oppose the idea. The discussion on both sides is very warm among the people.

WOODS -- BYERS. -- At Henrietta, Blair County, on Tuesday, March 8, 1892, at 10 o'clock A.M., at the home of Joseph Kauffman, by Rev. Jacob Snyder, of the Mennonite Church, Mr. John E. Woods, of near Bethel, Somerset County, and Mrs. Elizabeth Byers, of Henrietta, PA.


At 5:15 o'clock last evening Chief Richardson arrested John F. Keck, of the Seventeenth Ward, for fighting with Michael McCaulley yesterday afternoon in McAteer's bar room. Keck left a forfeit of $30 for his appearance this morning, when he was fined $15 and costs by the Mayor. He paid $20.09 in all. Last evening McCaulley made an information against Keck before Alderman Harris for assault and battery. After Keck paid his fine and costs to the Mayor this morning Constable Waters took him into custody. They repaired to the Alderman's office for a hearing. Keck pleaded guilty and the Alderman bound him over to answer the charge at court. Subsequently McCaulley withdrew the charge, and Keck paid the costs -- $8.62. McCaulley says that he spoke to Keck about a small sum of money which Keck owed him, when he planted a right-hander on his nose. From the appearance of Mac's face he must have been hit hard. Both his eyes are black and blue and his nose is badly cut.


Miss Julia Marlowe's fame has already successfully run the gauntlet of metropolican criticism, which has pronounced her the brightest actress now on the American statge, hence all that is necessary to say concerning her in connection with her appearance at Adair's Opera House last evening is that the audience appreciated her. Numerous vigorous outbursts of applause and several persistent encores gave evidence of this fact. She is indeed a perfect Rosalind, and, her support is all that is necessary to present "As You Like It" in a most satisfactory manner. The house was well filled.

Another of the Children Taken Charge of by the Authorities

Frank Edgar Randolph, a son of Mrs. Emily J. Randolph, of the Fourteenth Ward, was taken to Ebensburg this morning by Constable Varner and lodged in jail. He is incorrigible, and it is believe his mind is diseased. It was on complaint of his mother -- made before Magistrate Bland -- that he was committed to jail. It is likely he will be sent to some asylum. The boy is not over seven years of age. This is the third child from this family to be committed to the care of the authorities on account of mental derangement. The other two have been in the Cambria County Almshouse for some time, and there has been a good deal of litigation between Cambria and Clarion Counties as to which is legally bound to maintain the children, the family having formerly lived in Clarion County, and the authorities of this county claiming they they have not lived here long enough to obtain a residence.
