Mr. Mitchell nominated Mr. Von Storch and Mr. Coar socondsd the nomination. Mr. Jennings said: "l'urty politics sre not supposed to euter into the deliberations of this body. 1c is not unusual for the representative of each political party to make a selection as to its choioe of men for positions of honor iiml of trust. Such is the case In this instance, nud in behalf of the minority 1 desire to Mate that a more acceptable selection could not be mad '. Every action ot his during the years he has served with ih hm shown a spirit of fnirniindi dness that is very rare in partisan politics Mr. Vou Storeh is a learned gentiomau. aud ho will brine to the position of chairman maob. dig nil v."

That gentleman declined their MliltlQO and said ho desired to make a few r marks from his old place ou the floor. Ho said: "Dr. Spencer has said that Soranton is uomoan city. This is par ticularly true regarding its school in terests. Ttie school properly in this city excels $000,000 In value. The Ihl'Ii school committee when on n tour of inspection lust year saw very few .schools that were superior to the eight aud twelve room schools that have liter, rrroted duriug the past few years, still wo have been erecting buildings at the rate of two a year and still the accommodation is not what it onht to be. We have to rent apartments in every section of the city, and this jraar w propose erecting two schools hesidoi tho high school. This year will be a very important oue Tne completion of the high school will make it neces sary to rearrange the entira system of dis'ricts, and we uiuit, to act intelli gently, begin early. "Coming here aatho servants of those who sent U3, we represent Republican and Democratic war is, but it would ha unwise to BOt as partisans in deliber ating for the common good. We siiotil 1 drop Jill political an 1 personal consid erations, If wo attend to the duties which we have assumed, if wo look after the maintenance of the schools aud the welfare of their patrons, we will have enough to do, without watt ing time in political controversy." Concluding, Mr Von Storch said: ' During my term of sorvica I have endeavored to make no enemies, and 1 think I baVO succeeded fairly well. 1 msko this pledge of conduct for the fu ture. If I err, I assure yoa before hand it will in julgtu?nt, not in in terest," CONGRATULATED BY MR. WORMS KR, Mr. Vou Storck proceeded to the president's desk, and M-. Wormser rose to nisc-t bim. The Eighth ward gentleman said : ''It affords me much pleasure to present you with this gave), tne insignia of your snthority. I be lieve that you will make an ideal pre siding ofllccr. Your short term of ser vicn hns so imprecsed us with your worth that 1 have no hesitation in pre dieting that the result of this night's work will be a glorious one for yon, as Well ns for tho entire district Accept my heartiest congratulations." The now president asked for nomina tions for serretary. Mr. Wormier named Mr. Fellows and ths motion was seconded by Mr. Mitchell, Mr. Watroni and Mr. Notz.

Hie Pluck and Fueh an Example of the Rucceseful Dullness Man. A good illustration of the pluck and enterprise ot the Scranton business men is exemplified in the successful exortions of E. G. Conrsen slnco fire, wuter and smoke ruined hi. grocery stock in his Lackawanna avenue atnre Burned out Sunday afternoon, Tuesday morning found him ut a new store, stocked witn a complete aud fresh line of goods from New York. Mr. CourBen's old friends are stand ing by bin aud no doubt he has won many new onos by bis push and go aneadiveness. When Mr. OourBau began negotiations for his present tem porary quarters he found that a Isase was held by u third party ; $986 was paid tho latter for one mouth's posses sion. Such an evidence of Scruutou hustle invites admiration. A stock rep resenting nearly fi.OOO is in the new store at 211 Washington avenue. . THE TIMES' CHARGES UNTRUE. PoetmattT Vandllnir Undeservedly At tacked by the Damr.oratio Organ. The Scranton Timet in its issue of Monday contained an attack upon Post master F. M. Vandling, charging him with keeping Republicans in olllco who were negligent in the discharge of their duties, and cited the caae of n letter tbnt was sent from the New York ofllco of the Central Railroad of New Jersey, and which the Times claims was ad dressed to the Sisters of the Home of the Good Shepherd, ut Providence. When n Tkiiiuni: reporter spoke to Postmaster VauJling yesterday about the ehargjB in the Times, ho pro nounced tuein untrue and without any foundation whatever, and substanti ated bis story by producing letters from the Home of the Good Shepherd aud aim from tho Cjavout of the lm uiaeuluto Heart. The letter to which the Times re ferrud arrived at the Serauton post of fice on Feb. 10 and was delivered by letter carrier to the Home of the G30 i Shepherd. It was return-"! to the poe toffies as the person addreesad was not know.) nt. the institution. It Wi!s next delivered at the Convent of the Immaculate. Heart on Williams street and also returned from there for the s una reason. Tho per son's address not h iving bean found, the letter was returned on Feb. 17 to to the sender, the Central Railroad ot New Jersey, At Now York. The ad dress upon thu letter was: "Mother Josephs and Sisters. "Home of the Good Bbepberd, "Williams Slreet, Scranton, Pa." The sisters in charge of the two in stitutions have each written Mr. Vaud ling that the letter iti question had born left at their institutions, but had been returned to tho post offiuS lor the reason that the persous addressed were not there known. FOR WORKINGMEN. Small Saving- That Are Certain to R turn Large Interest. There is a widespread idea that books are costly luxuries, uud that only thos possessed of abundant lueau can afford tube the owner of works covering a very widerangoof topics. Heuce many men, young us well ss old, who are desirous of educating themselves, are prevented from bo doing simply be cause it is impossible for them to spare the money tieed-d for obtaining the necessary books. It is quite true that the possession of a complete library Involve! lurgu expenditure, which is beyond tne reach of persons of humble means. Rut it is a fact that tho ability to educate one's self does not depend upon large expenditure for hooka. At bast an education is but an epltomlcition of the knowledge of oth ers, and does uot involve original re search except iu a few cas?s. To ob tain such un ipitomiattion duos uot necessarily involve a detailed study ot all the works upon any desired topic, mice thiB has already been dons by the best scholars, tho rosults of those Is bun are confined in those great con densations known as encyclopedias. The encyclopedia is the poor man's complete libraty. In it is the concen trated wisdom of the best minds tho world hns ever seen. It is authoritat ive and complete, The amount required in order to ol - tain possession of that greatest of all eucyclopodi is, the Britannic i, is so small that no oue can plead poverty ns a reason for not purchasing it. Tae iu Biguifiosnt sum of 10 cjnts a day can surely be laid away by anyone who is regularly employed, uo matter how small his wages, and yet that Is all that is ueed.'d beyond the first cash payment. A little self-denial is all that is nec essary, and it will prove a literal oist ing of bread upon the waters, for no money is art well spent or so certain of returning a large interst as that da- vMel to obt.uniny an education. Tin: TlHDU.fB invites tvery working man In the city to call ut the encyclo podia headquarters, Snruce street and examine this work, which is put within their reach for less than ou fourth the price heretofore asked, and ution the Unequalled terms of 10 cants a dsy. i a WOROEK'a CLAIM OISPUTED. Arbitrators Llatsn t Tsstimiay Wi'b RJgird to It. The case of Minor E WordlU against Shifter Brothers, contractors, was heard before Arbitrators C. W. Daw son ; Uyron Akerly and H. L. Taylor yesterday in the arbitration room At torney John F. Scragg appeared for the defendant and Attorney W. W. Baylor for the plaintiff. Mr, Worden sued to receive 117 00 for work and tnateri ils furnished for buildings Which Sdlffsr itrotbsrs had the Contract for erecting.

When it was first proposed to secure new grounds tho directors waited up m General Manager Archer, of the Scran ton Traction company, who assured the base ball men that be would assist them In their efforts to secure grounds more suitably located than the Driv ing pirk. Recent events evidently have changed .Mr. Archer's determina tion, and when thu mount the head of Soreuton'l base bull club called upon him yesterday they were informed that the Traction company could not assist them. Tne announcement of Mr. Archer must have caused the base ball men to change their plans regarding gronnds, for one of the directors last evening slated to a TbIBUMI reporter that the club had given up the idea of securing grounds from tbe Delaware, Lacka wanna und Western railroal near the old Drlviug park uud would fix up the South Side grounds.

A DOUBLE-JOINTED CEREMONY Did Clerk Thomas or the Groom Be come Rattled-Rev. W. H. Pearce Weds the Lady to a Mythical Hus band She Became Nervous, but It All Ended Happily -It's New in Scranton. A double-jointed marriage was per formed Monday afternoon by Rev. W. H, Pesroo. The clerk of the courts, tbe contracting parties and the ror erond gentleman were all mixed up in it, although investigation shows that uo hlatne ahould be attached to the minister or to tile lady. Iu these inventive times there are double-jointed peanuts, machinery and hone structures, duplex wssaing ma chines nud other things ; but a double jointed marriage cerumotiy hud hereto fore been a matter of doubt, so it de volved upon Scranton, ahead in all things as usual, to give to the world this now kind of marriage. WHO MADE THE MISTAKE It all happened through a misunder standing of names between the pros pective husband and John II. Thomar, clerk of the court, who issued the li cense. After the marriage ritnal bad been gone through with, Dr. Pearce found he had been addressing his re marks to a mythical person, the pros pective wife beciims nervous, a new license was immediately procured and finally everythingended happily. This is how it all happened : Warner M. Craino and Martha Id Italdwin, both of Fulton, Osweso county, N. Y., applied to Mr. Thorn, e for a marriage license. They secured the certificate and repaired to tho resi dence of Rev. W. II. Pearce, of tl.e Elm Park Methodist church, to to made one Mr. Pearee'l family gath ered about, witnessing what they sup posed to be u marriage, and everything went swimmingly until the tniulster extended his hand to Mr. Craine and said, "Accept my hearty congratula tions and well-wishes Mr. Miller." " 'Miller'.'' why. my uaruo isn't 'Mil ler,' " sid be. Tae supposed bride wns receiving the usual "wish you much joy, etc," from the minister's family. WEDDED THE WBONQ BUN. "Verv unfortunate, mv dear madam," said Mr, Pearce, "but, nm-er-tbat is, it seems I have wedded yiu to the wronit man." Smelling silts might have been needed bin for a hasty explanation by Mr. Pearc?. Someone had mixd names in nuking out the lie-use certi ficate, and Mr. Cralne's name uppear'-d as "Miller." He aaid the ceremony, while all right lu tho spirit, wus far from correct in the eyes of the law. Something niu-it be dono nud at once to straighten matters. The conple hastily returned to the c-nrt house, where tho mistake was rectified by Mr. Thomas. They then made a second visit to the parsonage and were madj one.
