Mr. Phillips said the task imposed
on hitii seemed needless, as the word

race they boasted of and to which they
belonged the Welsh. II hoped the

not be so predisposd to oonfioing their

As soon ns Mr. Sindorson's resolu

to refer it to the special bridge com -mittee
with Instructions to report

Seventh ward explained that lie wanted
to introduce two ordinances and have
them passed upon first and second read

Genial and ever hanpy Billy Craig
has entered tils new sphere of useful
ness as Revenue dllector H-rring's
deputy in this district. That he will
fill the oflics as acceptably and give as
good satisfaction as any Democrat
hereabouts is conceded on all sides.
Craig is one of the unique figures in
Lackawanna politics, and has done
some stalwart work for Dsmocra
cy, having been for six years one
of ex Sheriff Robinson's trusted
lieutenants. His service in the sher
iff's office has made him n familar fig
ure in all puts, of the county. He
dearly loves a praetioal jok and can
relato a storv in an inimitable manner.
When Sheriff Fahey and Djputy Craig
occasionally laid nsidn official cares an I
revealed their powers as entertainers,
the sheriff's nfii te was a most agreeable
pluce to while away a half hour.
Fish Commissioner S. B Stillwell is
the inventor of a system of shorthand
writing which he uses with great sue

any of tho systems now in use. Mr.
Stillwell has also made valuable im

purposes, and works daily at his im
proved desk in bis office in the Dela

which adjoins that of ( moral Manager
W. F. Hallstead, Mr. Stillwell is one
