MEETING OF SECOND WARD CIT
IZENS. Hefused to Endorse Nomination of
H. S. Alworth-J. X. Smith Waa
Placed in Nomination nnd Men
Were Named to Advanco Hia Can
didacy at the Polln Today Mrs,
Hannah Lnlly'a Case Heard Before
Alderman Fldler Notes of a Per
sonal and News Nature.
The meeting of the citizens of the
Second ward at the Auditorium last
nlglit to net upon the nominations
made nt Saturday's eauousses for com
mon councilman refused to endorse the
candidacy of cither H. H. Alworth, Re
publican, or Patrick Flynn, Democrat,
and placed In nomination the name nf
J. K. Smith.
In addition to making this nomina
tion the meeting unanimously adopted
resolutions presented by Tt, E. Hurley
with reference to the necessity of re
form In city affairs.
In the absence or D. B. Atherton,
who was elected chairman at last Fri
day evening's meeting, Thomas S. Mor
gan was made chairman pro tern, of
last night's meeting, with M. K: San
ders acting as secretary. Mr. Morgan
stated the object of the meeting to be
the tailing of action upon the result
of the cuticusses held on Saturday, and
asked the pleasure of the meeting. A
motion to ratify the nomination of H.
S. Alworth, the Republican candidate,
was seconded, bringing forth a num
ber of interrogatories from Kev. Dr.
Lansing as to who the candidate was,
what his qualifications were, and what
Influence It was that brought him for
ward us a candidate.
Br. Lansing sulci the time was at
hand when the people of this city
should be aroused to the necessities of
municipal government, when they
should profoundly stir themselves to
such action as would forever stamp otlt
the Infamy which has made our city a
disgrace. A man who goes Into the
councils now should be a representative
citizen, and we as citizens should be
extremely careful about endorsing any
man who may be only the creation of
those who have been discredited.
O. P. Miller, D. P. Replogle and Dr.
Lansing spoke In turn on partisan pol
itics, and the great need of keeping
them out of the meeting and tn fact
out of municipal affairs. John 10.
Moran, one of the Democratic usplrants
for council, also spoke.
The motion to endorse Mr. Alworth
was then put. Oswald Jones moved
that the meeting proceed to the nomi
nation of n candidate for common
council. The motion was adopted, and
the names of George S. Ktuiges, J. K.
Smith. D. B. Atherton aud John K.
Moran were presented. Before the bal
lot was taken the names of Sturges and
A'therton were withdrawn, and the
vote resulted In favor of Smith. O. P.
Miller and Francis Olver were the tell
ers of the election.
After calling for volunteers to work
at the polls today in behalf of Mr.
Smith, and getting a number of re
sponses, the meeting adjourned to the
call of the chair, the purpose being to
at once go forward with other meetings
for the betterment of political condi
tions In the North Scranton section of
Mrs. Lally Arrested.
The way of the transgressor Is hard,
but Airs. Hannah Laly, of 40S Putnam
street, believes she Is more sinned
against than sinning. Last Septem
ber she was arrested at the Instance
of Mayor Moir, charged wit main
taining a spenkeasy, and fined $'2X
The evidence was secured against her
by (he Donlln brothers, George and
Bob. Since then the Bottlers' Pro
tective association had search war
rants Issued for a number of people,
suspected of using their bottles ille
gally, and nmong the number under
surveillance was Mrs. Lally.
On Saturday last W. J. McDonnell,
n deputy constable of the Fifth' ward,
armed with one of these search war
rants, entered Mrs. Lnlly's house and
domunded permission to search the
premises for bottles. He was accom
panied by tho Donlln brothers, and
when Mrs. Lally discovered tho al
leged sleuths, who In September had
caused her arrest, she protested
against their Intrusion. The result
was that a general mtx-up occurred.
The Donlln's went before Alderman
Meyers and had a. warrant Issued fin
Mrs. Lally's arrest on the charges of
asiault and battery, disorderly con
duct and making threats. She was
held In $200 ball on each charge or
?00 In all. In addition to that, tho

$." or spend thirty days in the county
Jail. She paid the fine. (
Yesterday Mrs. Lally had the cele
brated Donlln brothers arraigned be
