and the lodge was rapidly decreasing.

the Polling Place in Minooka
Chanced Again-Harry Kclley'a
A petition Is In circulation In Ml
nooka to be presented to the court ask
ing that the order made last week
designating the Costcllo lot on Main
street as the location of a temporary
structure for a polling place be set
aside and some other place fixed. For
a number of years the polling place
was In St. Joseph's hall, which was
burned down last March. A new hall
is in process of erection, but the so
ciety is not willing to allow it be used
now or hereafter, for the reason that
the rental from the county Is very In
sufficient to compensate tor the amount
of wear and tear Involved.
The opposition to the Costello lot is
on the ground that It Is not centrally
located and will work an Injustice to
voters from the lower oart of the dis
trict, those living In Miner's Hill. The
majority of the voters, however, live
within a radius of four blocks from the

FIFTH WARD REPUBLICAN CLl'll
Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: There appeared an item In the
News of last Sunday which in our
opinion was intended for mud-throwing
at the newly organized Republican
club of the Third district of the Fifth
ward. The Item In question set forth
a McKinley Sound Money club had
been organized at the French Roof
hotel on Tuesday evening of last week.
It Is not so. There was one organized
on the snld evening in the hall of the
French Roof hotel. There is a differ
ence lietween meeting In a hall and in
It further asserts that there was an
other meeting held on the following
Thursday evening. True there was,
and It was a good one. An account of
the same nppenred In the Scrnnton Tri
bune of last Saturday. A good time
was had and good speeches were made
by several of the members present;
nnd, by the way, there was one held
on last Saturday evening, when Hon.
John R. Fnrr and D. W. Morgan were
the speakers of the evening. Yet an
other meeting was held Inst night and
the number of members in Increasing
at every meeting. If this is not prom
ising as the News claims that it Is not.
we would be glad to be informed by
the writer of the Item In question what
would be promising in this connection.
The article further states that the
club's organization is a little too sug
gest Ive of an unseen power behind It.
Wh.e does he find this? We are at a
loss to know. If it Is not from the fact
that the executives nre hard and hon
est worklnginen. The president, Mr.
tieorge W. Evans, Is a carpenter, nnd
works nt the car shops every day. The
vice-president, Mr. Richard Morgan,
and the treusurer, Mr. John Merchant,
ure bqth engineers at Prlce'n mine and
both gentlemen are held In hlsh es
teem by their fellow-worklngmen nnd
their acquaintances In general. The
secretary, William Oleason. Is one of
the most promising young men of the
town, coming of good parents; and all
the club, In fact. Is made of the same
timber. We all mean business, and we
shall prove it this evening In the grand
Why, then, should nnyorte resort to
throw mud at the well meaning? For
our own part, we rather refrain from
such doings lert we may get our hands
dirty In the operation. We hereby
venture the assertion that If the writer
of the Item In question Is as sincere as
the executives of this club nre, and the
club in general is, he will tind no
trouble In entering the golden gates at
the last day, as far as politics are

Editor of The Tribune.
Sir: In the Minooka correspondence
of the Tribune Monday there is a
statement in relation to the polling
place In the South district of Lacka

executor of the Costello estate will not
permit the citizens to trespass on the
property. The court last week desig
nated the lot on Main street, Minooka,
as the locution ot a temporary struc

except a few near the old polling place,
are satisfied with the change. The ar
rangements to occupy the lot were
