Only Three More Working Days Be
fore tho Casting of Ballots.
Including today, there are but three
more wot king das left before the
election, which according to law and
the mayor's ptoclamatlon, takes place
on Tuesday next, tho 19th. As yet
there Is no undue excitement over the
event, but the candidates are work
ing a quiet, methodical, buslness-llko
way, which will probable mean a mus
tering at the polls of tho greatest nutn
bpr of voters In years.
The principal Issue thlii year, as In
the past few, Is tho election of school
directors. The litigations nnd charges
of unfair methods made against some
of tho mcmbeis of the board which
has chaiuctcrlzcil Ioca.1 talk the past
year will have a tendency to bring out
their fi lends and the opposition In
great numbers.
Among tho membeis of the present
board Is Gustavo F. Svvlgert and, al
though ho has been a member of thu
board but n year, li Is regarded as
one of the pillars of the board nnd
m of the most publlc-splllted cill
yens In the ritv. 1'iogress .seems to
bo bis keenest deslic, and he Is con
iliiualt.v on tho lookout for sonic means
to improve the condition of the public
MioolH. Ho does not rest content with
b.ue statement, he wants It proved.
Mi. Swlgeit was a select cotiniil
niiin of this city for four years and
wjh Its pieMdent, making one of tho
best presiding otllcers this city lias
oxer known. Ho Is ci edited with
knowing more about Cushlng than
nny public officer In the city.
Another candidate for a bchool ill
leetorhhlp Is Thomas Boylan, who has
had e xperlence In that ollleo and who
Is making his canvass on the stiength
of the lecord ho made there.
The councllmanle nominees ura also
quietly at work and there are other
candidates who have made no stir. It
Is oxtiaoidlnniy quiet for the eve of an
election, but perhaps It will grow more
exciting In n day or so.

announcing the death of Ilev. Father
William A. Nealon, of this city, at tho
monastery of the Trapplst Fathers In
Gethsemane, Ky. No further pattlcu
lars were given In the telegram, and
It Is a surprise nnd shock to his tela
tlves and many friends In this city, as
when the last news was received by
his mother, a week ago, he was well,
and appatcntly the disease which
caused his death must have arisen
suddenly. Father Nealon went to the
monastery In Gethsemane a few weeks
ago to spend two months in retreat.
Ills brother, John M. Nealon, and
Father Motntt staitcd last evening for
Gcth&cmanc, which is a shott distance

Wllkes-Barro. He was then an as
sistant priest at St. Patrick's church
In Scinnton, and from there he went to
St. John's church In Susquehanna.
Fiom the latter place ho came to his

The Trolley Cars Delayed.
It was a cold day to wait on the
street corners yesterday for a car und
paitlcttlarly exasperating to the wait
er when, after a long session of com
muning in a inonlogue ns to tho habits
of trolley cats in being late, the car
came not. tint theie were two good
reasons for long delays yesteiday
moinlng In tho early bouts. The
schedule was suspended for .1 time by
accidents, Identical in nature. The cat
lea vlng the power house at 7 o'clock
got as far as chinch street switch
when the forvvaid axle snapped In two
pieces. The next car up got only ns
far as Evans' meat inatket, on South
Main street, when one of the axles
broke. The repair cievvs at once got
to woik repairing them, 'the cars being
hauled to the nearest switches.
Mr. Sahm Impioved.
Abe Sahm, who sustained such sell
ous Injuries by being thrown from the
wagon of tho Columbia Hose company
on Wednesday morning, while icspond
lng to nn alarm of lite, was much
improved yesterday. On Wednesday
evening ho wns delirious and passed
a bad night, but during estenlny he
rallied and showed a gient gain of
stienuth. His hearing Is still imper
fect, and as yet no steps have been
taken to nsceitnln If this Injury is of
a permanent natuie. It will piobably
be a week oi more before he will be
able to leave his bed.

Yesterday was Cupid's holiday but
It was no holiday for the postofllce
force and tho letteis curlers. These
unfortunate mentals had to put In con
siderable overtime in finishing their
woik, and In tho ftlgld weather con
ditions yesterday It was a haidshlp.
Hut. perhaps, the warmness of the

Judge Instructs tho Jury to Dis
charge the Constable.
Tho case against Constable Stephen
Ollby, ex-County Detective Leyshon,
piosetutor, was tried yesterday before
Judge Arehbald nnd a Jury In the
court house at Scranton. Gllby was
indicted by the grand Jury on tho
chnrgo of felonious wounding. He had
shot nt and wounded Edwntd J. Gor
man while tho latter was escaping
from his custody after being commit
ted by Alderman Dele van on a charge
of larceny. Tho shooting occurred on
New Yeat'fl night of this year. Gor
man wns taken to the Bmeigeney
hospital and has been nn inmate ever
since, the bullet finding a lodgment
In bis kneecap,
A few days after tine shooting Ley
shon came to town nnd nnested Gll
by on n wan ant. He was put under
bonds for his appearance at court.
Tho case has been twice postponed,
but came up yesteiday morning. After
the witnesses for the proreeutlon had
been heaid, nnd without the defenso
having put n witness on the stnnd,
Judge Arehbald Instructed the Jury
to acquit Gllby without leaving their
seats. The Judge uparently took the
view that the constuble was nctimr
entliely within bis rights In stopping
tho escano of a tleelnc nrlsoner who
had been regularly committed. This '
vindication of the constable will serva
to make men In custody of ofllcora
more apt to go nlong without resort

Playwiights' Bill Defective.
The bill to prevent pirates from
stealing unpublished and undedlcated
plays was reported from committee
this morning. The bill was diafted by
the American Dinmatlsts' club of New
Yoik and Is a copy of a law lecently
enncted In New York. The associa
tion Is trying to have It adopted In
every state. The copyright laws do
not adequately provldn protection
against these thefts, so It Is deemed
necessary to stiengthen It by statu
legislation. Dan 1. Hart has charge
of the bill In this statq. He entiusted
It to Sol Hacharacih, the governor's
executive cleik, and Mr. Hacharach
had Mr. Stroh, ot Lebanon, to father
It. The Hlks have sent a petition for
Its adoption.
The committee's leport was a nega
tive one, but this was not because It
opposes the bill. There was a legal
defect In It. This atternoon the com
mittee got together and drafted a new
bill along tho lines of the other, and
tomorrow It will be reporti-d favorably
Among the other bills lepoited from
committee were the following: Pro
viding for a department of building
and loan associations; poimlttlng
barbed wlte fences to be erected along
highways; piotecting trade marks and
union labels; making Somerset and
Caibon counties separate Judicial dis
tricts; providing for the builal of In
digent soldiers.
