THE WATER SITE.
City officials who have recently in
spected the Ransom tract, which is the
proposed site for the municipal water
dam, report that water in that vicin
ity is very scarce and that Mother
Hardy's creek doesn't look much like
it did last spring. They think artesian
wells are necessary to warrant such
an expenditure of money as will be
required to clear the property and
build a reservoir.

Senatorial Situation in 23d District
Becomes More Strained Daily.
Special to tlie Scranton Tribune.
Tunkhannock, Oct. 4. The Wilkes
Barre Iteeord of October i lias the fol
lowing to say In regard to the sena
torial situation In this district:
"If Is reported that B. W. Lewis, of
Wyoming county, who was sot up by
tho Quay machine to antagonize the
candidacy of Mr. Kdmiston, of Brad
ford county, for state senator, has be
come disgusted with the scheme and
will withdraw. If Mr, Lewis takes this
step he will show his good sense. Mr.
Edmlston was duly nominated by the
Republicans of Bradford in a square
battle with the machine, and Is en
titled to the support of the party, If
Mr. IjwIs wanted to be a candidate
he should have gone before the peoplo
of the district as Mr. Edmlston did. His
friends are surprised that he listened
for a moment to the scheme of the
Tho above statement shows a .won
derful Ignorance on the part of the
Record In regard to the situation, m
tho first place Mr. Lewis was not nut
up by tho Quayltes for tho purpose of
defeating Mr. Edmlston, but on the
contrary was nominated as the choice
of Wyoming county at u convention
held at this place in March last, long
before Mr, Edmlston's candidacy was
heardof. In the next place Mr. Ed
mlston did not go before tho people
of tho dlstilct In any sense. He wos
the choice of Bradford county for the
otllcu as Mr, Lewis was the choice of
Wyoming county, Mr, Edmlston was
not nominated us u candidate nt the
Wyoming county convention, nor was
Mr, Lewis a candidate ut the Bradford
primal les, and the peoplo of tho dis
trict have had no oportunlty to ex
pi ess a preference between the two
candidates. The Record seemis to think
that Bradford county composes the
twenty-third senatorial district. Last
ly, Mr, Lews does not Intend to with
draw, but on the contrary goes to Har
rlsburg today with his witnesses where
tho contest for the nomination will be
decided by the court of Dauphin coun
ty, If the contest Is decided In favor
of the Bradford county candidate t Is
the Intention of Wyoming to support
tho regular Republican ticket, but Mr!
Edmlston, following the regulation In
surgent tncttcfl. will bolt the regular
Republican ticket, In case ho should
nob be nominated, and wilt run Inde
pendently under the designation of
Honest Government party. Tho Record
loses sight of thf renl Issue Involved
n the present fight, That Issue Is the
'right of Wyoming county to have the
nomination for the ofllce of senator ns
often ns the proportion of her Repub
lican vote of the whole district would
entitle her. Bradford hns about 9,000
Republican votes and Wyoming nbout
2,000. This should entitle Wyonilng to
tho nomination once In from llfteen to
twenty years. Since the district wns
set off. In 1874 Bradford has held the
nomination nnd further gives notice
that she Intends to hold It Just ns long
as she can do so, and under tho circum
stances, there seems to be nothing for
Wyoming county to do hut fight'.
Eleventh Annual County Conven
tion of W. C. T. V, at Factory
ville Programme Rendered.
Speclat to tlie Scranton Tilbtine.
Pactoryvllle, pct. 4. The eleventh
annunl county convention of ths
Women's Christian Temperance union
was held in the Baptist church last
Wednesday and Thursday. The con
vention was called to order Wednes
day afternoon promptly at 1.30 o'clock
by County President Mrs. G. B. Ma
thews, of this plac;. Many visiting
delegates and members of the numer
ous unions throughout the county
were present, and prepared for the
work allotted for each to do at this
time. The principle featuress of tho
Wednesday afternoon programme were
the papers read by Mrs. Wilson Stark
and Mrs. Charles Freeman, and the ad
dress by Rev. J. W. Putnam, D. D., of
Wednesday evening's programme
was the most important of the entire
convention, It being the. time set for
the oratorical medal 'contest. Six
young lady contestants entered, and
eaclt contestant did credit to their
subjects, and it would be very hard
to make special mention of any of
them. The judges awarded the beau
tiful gold medal to Miss Marlon Leigh
ton, of Tunkhannock, there being less
than one point between Miss Lelghton
and Miss Agnes Button, of this place.
The judges in the contest were Prof.
D. C. Roe, of the Factoryvllle graded
schools: Miss Hartley, of Keystone
Academy, and Mrs. G. R. Smith.
The capacity of the church was
taxed to accommodate the people on
this occasion. Thursday morning's
programme consisted of roll call, re
ports of ofllcers, election of ofllcers,
etc. A very carefully prepared paper
on "The Evils of Cider Making and
Drinking" was read by Miss Margaret
Fassett, of Forkston, Pa. Mrs. F. M.
Osterhout sang very sweetly a solo
with a duet. At noon dinner was
served by the Ladles' Aid society for
ten cents, and a bountiful repast was
furnished .by those faithful workers.
The principal eventn in the pro
gramme Thursday afternoon were a
recitation, "The Two Portraits," by
Miss Bessie Spence-, in her pleasing
and captivating manner, and the re
ports of County Organizer Mrs. D. C.
Roe. Mrs. Roe said, in part, that
there had been in the past year about
150 new members taken into the union
throughout the county, and three new
unions organized, one at East Lemon,
one at Forkston, and one at Eaton
'vllle: also one reorganized at Nichol
son.' The old county officers were
unanimously re-elect3d for one year.
The next mid-year convention was
decided to be held at Mehoopany, and
the place of holding the next annual
convention was not decided upon.
Prof. W. N. Manchester had charge
of the musical part of the programme
throughout, which accounted for the
fine music which was rendered during
the convention. It was unanimously
voted that this was the most success
ful and the largest convention that tha
county officers and members of the
union have ever held.
