The Hlues wore neckties and lupel
buttons of blue, while the Reds were
revealed by the same articles, but of a
red color.
Karly in the evening the Reds placed
a red-lettered poster on the street bul
letin board calling attention to their
meeting. A few- moments later It was
torn down by the Blues, and a similar
ly winded blue poster was put in its
place. This In turn was torn down by
the Reds and a red poster was for the

There were other episodes which left
no doubt of the earnest work each side
will perform to win. For Instance, in
yesterday's Tribune appeared the fol
lowing advertisement at the head of
the city note column:
"Join the Blues."
Timing the day the Reds contracted
for the following line to bo printed
beneath the above announcement of
the Blues:
"Why, no! Join the Reds."
The circumstance goes to show to
what extremes the two factions will go
to outwit each other and the two ad
vertisements appear In The Tribune
this morning.
The Tribune has already been "np
pronched'" by the Red and Blue repre
sentatives to boom their respective
causes, another evidence of the lobby

subterfuges usually resorted to In legiti

It has been made known to the cap

wins the contest will be allowed at the
bunquet unless he has secured at least
one new member. The banquet privi

member who himself secures unother
new member, provided the former was
drafted by the winning side.

Schlager reference was made to the ex
cellent citizens who will pass upon the
indictments. The constables made their
quarterly return. In only two baili
wicks was there any liquor sold with
out a llcese.
Constable John C. Moran, of the
Twelfth ward, in his return reported
that Daniel Hayes, of Stone avenue,
has been maintaining a place for the
sale of liquor without a license in vio
lation of the -laws regulating the sale
of the ardent. Mr. Moran once upon a
time, but it Is away back in the 'no's,
reported .Mary Ann Hayes, wife of
Daniel, for the same offense, but she
was never brought Into court to answer
the charge.
There are no gambling houses In the
Twelfth, he suy9: there have been no
disturbances of the peace at elections;
no deer klllfd out of season over there,
but the roads and bridges are in only
passable condition. It is unfortunate
that Hayes should be the only one in
the ward to digress and thus spoil the
brilliant record that has heretofore
been the good fortune of that bulliwlck.
Constable Patrick Roach, of the
Seventh ward, reported that Henry lie
Hale and wife, Mury Ann, Martin
Dougherty and wife, Ann; Mary Mainl
and Kate Malloy, have been guilty of
dispensing Intoxicating liquors without
a license. Constable Roach was grati
fied to suy in his return that the roads

the law down there and have not killed
any deer out of season. And as for
disturbances of the peace at elections,
none could be discovered even with one
of Roentgen's cathode rays.
Constable William Sonn, of Throop.
had no liquor law violations to report,
but there was an Illegitimate child born
to Hannah Indian, and she alleges that
the paternity of the infant belongs to
Peter Parry.
The quurtette of constnbles who
found something to report Is rounded
out hy I. P. Dolph, of the First ward of
Diinuiore. Mr. Unlph has heard it said
that there are a few speak-easles in Ills

Is No LomiLT Executor uf the Estate
uf IC K. Ellis.
It Was Made Yesterday and Declares
tbe Executorship Vacant Reasons
That Led to This Action Being
Taken by the Ellis Heirs.
Attorney George W. Beale' Was yes
terday deprived by the court of any
further management of the estate of
R. K. Ellis, deceased. The significance
of this is that Mr. Beale Is in straitened
financial circumstances and ' that his
property will be seized to collect a large
amount of money, which he owes the
estate. The petition on. which Mr.
Beale'a removal was based was pre
sented by A. D. Dean, reprenentlng the
estate of Esther Meade, ulleglng that
the further continuance of Mr. Beale
as executor of the Ellis estate would
Jeopardize It and be detrimental to the
interests of the beneficiaries.
About three or four years ago R. K.
Ellis died. He lived in West Ablngton
kund was worth an undivided one-half
interest In eighty-four acres of land,
valued at $8,000. Ills half and his er
sonal property was appraised at $5.-
4.71. Mr. Beale was the executor. In
due time he filed a first partial account
of htsnist and It wan, coithrmed final
ly. I pon the audit of, the account $1.-O-Mi
111 wan awarded to the: estate of
Esther Meaile, who vus one of , the de
visers under the will, und on Dec. 21,
ISM. The auditor was directed to pay
this amount to the Meudu nutate.
Mr. Beale failed to turn the money
over and th court was asked to order
him to tile a bond in the sum of IG.OOO
with two Buret les to be approved by the
court Ten days was the time, fixed in
which he should file the bond. In de
fault of the filing of such a bond the
court served notice on Mr. Heale that
his office as executor would be declared
vacant, and his letters testamentary
revoked. The ten days given him were
lengthened out, and the time was ex
tended to Feb.. 8. He plead that If he
had sufficient time It would enuble him
to straighten matters out.
On Jan. I'S last upon request' ot At
torney Dean, the court directed a fl.
fa. to issue from the orphan's court
as Judgment against Mr. Beale. The
document Is now on file in the olllce of
Prothontary Pryor, but no execution
has yet been made upon it. Th& order
declaring the executorship vacant was
made yesterday by Judge .Edwards,
and Is as follows:
Now, March 10, 18H6, the court rinvlng
made a decree entered' of record on Uee.
SO, 1HH5, ordering the directing that (leorge
W. Keale, executor of the estate of II. K.

Short Storv About Wesser Tamil of
Hosring Bronl:, In Politics.
Beyond in Roaring Brook township
the American game of politics fur
nlshes an Interesting narrative. Judge
Archbald yesterday appointed Jacob
Wesser suiiervlsor of Roaring Brook to
serve until his successor IS elected next
February. The man who was elected
last February refuses to serve.
Pnrrv Wesser is the one who declines
to have arealness thrust upon him; he
la a. son of the man who was appointed
yesterday. I.ast election the father
ran on the Republican ticket and the
Democrats nut up the son and carried
the day. The victor would not take the
office the first Monday of this month
and a petition was presented to court to
till the vacancy.
libel Salt Began for $9,000 b Michael
Jennings, of Bellevue.
Attorneys Hulslander & Vosburg for
their client. Michael Jennings, of Belle
nue, brought suit yesterday in the olllce
of Prothonotary Pryor against K. J.
Beamish, publisher of the Scranton
Sunday Free Press, claiming- damages
in the sum of $5,000. Jennings alleges
that he was libeled in the Free Press
on Sunday, March 1. An article headed
Insurance Swindlers at W ork.
tin the Sun. lay following the publica
tion of the article the Free Press pub
lished a denial from Jennings of the
charges. The plaintiff claims that the
Prudential Life Insurance company
would have nothing to do with him since
the story appeared and that his repu
tation among his neighbors has dropped
away below par.
The company with which Mr. Jen
nings was charged with being Identified
was the Aegis, of Baltimore.
Harper's Editor's Drawer far March has
some pretty good stories. Here are three
of them: Voting Sloam was ever noted
for his perfect breeding, and though as a
college student he was sometimes a trifle
tho worse for a late supper he never for
got to D true to nis cone, on one Alien oc
casion, after a most determined effort to
enter a house which he believed his own.
he was met ut the door bv the scuntllv

formation as to his whereabouts and the
added news that the householder had u
sick wife and child unstulra who had been
sloam made object anolonles ami ie-
parted, but his home seemed lo elude him
und aguin the same irate householder was
brought to his door by Sloam's knocks for

cried the Indignant man. "And don't you

evening as would elicit an invitation to

signed to the same sleeping apartment
and Mfter their host had bid them "good

room a rough stulrway, ut the hpn.l of
which wa a trap-door. This evidently
led to the loft of which thev hud heard
and the captain seized the candle and as
cended the steps. Unfortunately, how

the attic a sudden gust from some open
