For the third time In Its history the

threw open Its elegant Franklin avenue
quarters to the ladles. That their chlv

tne generous response to their Invlta

wives, sisters, etc., of the "best people
on earth" were there, and It la not
rieklnfr anything to say that they were
glad tney came, tor tney were royally
entertained after the exceedingly
pleasant ana novel manner of enter

about an hour at the end of which time
the Elks' own distinguished kind of
frolic was Inaugurated.
Alderman Millar was made chairman
and most happily did he fill the office.
Homo of his Judicial acts or. last nigm
will, no doubt, make It difficult for him
to assume his usual courtly dignity
this morning. For instance: Hon. Alex.
T. Conncll was lined 25 cents for com
ing to the session In a full dress suit,
and straw hat; Judge P. P. Smith got
60 cents fine for being the most pP
ular Democrat In Pennsylvania; Hon.
Charles P. O'Malley had to pay 25 cents
because he allowed Judge Klce to come
near to beating Judge Wlllard; Peter
Zlegler was fined 25 cents ror getting
the ice-cooler full; J. K. Cohen paid a
like sum for wearing Joseph Levy's
neck-tie to the session; Charles H.
Schadt was let off with a quarter fine
for monopolizing the Ice business; ev
ery Elk in the house who brought a
ludy was fined 25 cents, and every one
who didn't bring a lady was fined 0
cents, and on motion of Alex. Conner!,
the alderman himself was fined 11 for
being the bi'st chairman that had ever
graced an Elk's social session.
Some of the F.mcrtsiners.
These' Jovialities were merely Inter
spersed between the literary and mu
sical programme by way of variety, and
while thpy were hugely enjoyed they
were only side issues. Among those who
entertained were the Elks' quartette,
composed of John T. Watklns. Thomas

CftKDIDATES MM DP
Want the Offices to Be Distributed at
the February Clectloa.
SOME OP THE AMBITIOUS ONES
List la Already Qalt Largs, although All
of Talsat las Wat Yet Besa Heard
From-Maay Lively Coa
No little Interest Is already shown
In the municipal election to take place
In February, at which a mayor, city
treasurer, city controller and three city
assessors will be elected for terms of
three years. Select councllmen will ho
elected In the odd numbered wards, and
common councllmen and school con
trollers In the even numbered wards.
The contests for these offices will be
waged with vigor In every ward In the
city, and will result in a very large
vote being polled.
Only four candidatea have aa yet
publicly announced themselves as can
didates for city offices, and It Is a sig
nificant fact that all of them are Repub
licans. There Is every prospect of a de
cisive victory by the Republicans at the
spring election In this city, and conse
quently the Democratic brethren are
not tumbling over one another In a
wild desire to put In applications for
nominations. In fact not a single
Democrat has as yet come forward and
declared himself. James G. Bailey, C.
G. Boland, M. J. Kelly and John E.
Roche have for months been spoken
of by Democrats In connection with
the mayoralty, and the names of Mr.
Boland. Stephen Spruks, 11. T. Koen
ler and Mr. Kelly have also been
linked with tho office of city treasurer.
John J. Gaffney and the city controller
ship have been mentioned together but
none of these gentlemen have up to
this time announced themselves as can
didates. On the Other Side of the Fence.
The status of affairs In tho Republi
can camp with regard to the office of
mayor Is known by the general public.
Daniel Williams and Thomas D. Davlos,
both residents of the West Side, have
formally announced that they are can
didates for the Republican nomina
tion for city treasurer, and Wade Finn,
of the Second ward, has repeatedly,
during the last year, stated that he is
a candidate for the nomination al
though he has as yet refrained from
making any announcement of the fact
through the public prints. Fred J. Wld
mayer will be opposed for the nomina
tion for city controller by C. W. West-
pfahl, chairman of the select council.
Candidates for the city assessorshlps
are shy about coming forward. Since
their powers were greatly reduced by
the creation of the board of revslon
and appeals the office of city assessor
Is not near so desirable as It was and
the temptation to seek It has been
greatly lessened In consequence.
Charles Fowler, of the Thirteenth, is
one of those mentioned as a possble Re
There are no lack of candidates for
the ward offices. In the First, Finlvy
Ross will try to succeed himself as
select councilman and will probably lie
successful, although ex-Select Council
man George Archbald threatens to en
compass Mr. Ross' defeat by becoming
a candidate himself. Th's news has not
greatly disturbed Mr. Ross.
In ths Second Ward.
Peter Kelly, the selectman from the
Third ward, will also ask for another
term, but his right to It will be con
tested by ex-Select Councilman James
Kearney, Prof. J. J. Costello and
Michael Fog. All are Democrats. R.
H. Williams, who now represents the
Fifth ward In the upper branch, would
not object to another term. He will
be opposed for the Republican nomi
nation by E. E. Kobathan and Con
tractor E. E. Hughes. P. F. Cannon,
Democrat, Is also mentioned as a can
didate for the office.
In the Seventh ward John E. Roche
will seek a re-election to the select. It
Is a strongly Democratic ward and as
yet no one has been announced as an
opposition candidate to Mr. Roche. In
the Ninth, Eleventh and Thirteenth
wards the lines of battle have not yet
been drawn. Charles Stone. Remib I-
can, and Fred Phillips, Democrats, are
mentioned for select council In the
Horatio T. Fellows will ask tho voters
of the Fifteenth ward to send him back
to the select for four years more, but
he will be opposed for the Republican
nomination by Thomas D. Thomas and
posHltly one or two others. J. A. Lans
Ing la not likely to nave opposlton in
the Seventeenth ward. He was elected
a year ago to fill the unexpired term

didate ror re-election from the Nine-
teenth nor has any other Republican
been advanced ror the office. D. W.
Vaughan and Edward Frable will con
test for the Democratic nomination in
that ward. In the Twenty-first ward
Thomas MCHale and John McAndrew
Democrats, are candidates for tho offi;e
of aelect council.
The Other Ward Offices.
Morris V. Morris, common council'
man, and C. H. von Storch, school con
troller, will be candidates for re-elec
tlon In the Second ward, and Simon
Thomas will ask the voters of the
Fourth ward to give him another term
In the lower branch. He will be oo
posed by John Fern. Richard Nichols
and A. B. Eynon, Republicans, and
Benson Daves, Democrat, are candi
datea for school controller in the ward.
- In the Sixth ward there promises to
be a lively battle ror school controller.
John P. Mahon, the present Incumbent,
John Casey and M. J. O'Toole, Demo
crats, and John Hale, Republican, are
spoken of as candidates. John Regan
wants to succeed himself as common
counollman of the ward. Dr. John

crat and Republican respectively, are
named as candidates ror school con
troller in the Eighth, and Fred S. God

There was a little gathering In the
tailor shop of Captain James Molr,
on Lackawanna avenue, Monday night
Captain Molr Is a candidate for the
Republican nomination for mayor, and
the gathering contained many of his
friends. About fifty persons were pres
ent and the king pin or the gathering
was Congressman Joseph A. Scranton;
that Is, Mr. Scranton was the king pin
until just fore the meeting dispersed
wnen someone iook excepuun to nis
harrangue about the "Connell ring,"
and told the congressman what a little
man he really was.
The scranton episode occurred after
adjournment, and while the men pres

room. Mr. Scranton exploded the same
old something about the "Connell ring,"
but was brought to a rignt-aoout Dy
Max Zlzelman, of the Seventeenth
ward, who said:
"Mr. Scranton, you are the most un
grateful man in Lackawanna county,
and you have proper cause to be
ashamed of yourself. Vou can thank
only William Connell for the position
you noia today, ana you wouidn t dare
use the expressions you have here to

congressman Btood abashed while Ziz

resume hla equipoise Zlzelman con
tinued: What Mr. Zlzelman Said.
'You have no right nor grounds for
slandering Mr. Connell, and his friends.

them, but I wouldn't do It In your poor
style. They kept me from getting the
nomination for select council in the
Seventeenth ward, but you "
How dare you! How dare you

Mr. Scranton, now thoroughly aroused.
"Because I dare; that's why. And
yoo arc not In a position to resent it,"
was the reply.

handing a nerfecto to the young man,
and that's how the meeting ended.
During the evening Captain Molr was
endorsed for the mayoralty, Thomas I),
Davles for treasurer and Charles W,

Wcstpfahl, however, would not become
a candidate until after "powerful In

felt" When this assertion was made
there was a dead silence until some
