opera house and many other business places. A reward of $1,000 was
ineffectually offered by the city council. Last night another barn,
with two horses was burned, and on information of Max SWARTZ, the
owner, Landis STEEL, son of Prothonotary STEEL, and Harry MILLER, of
this place, were arrested tonight and placed in jail. A warrant is
also out for Thomas WAITE, son of ex-District Attorney WAITE. A
