FORMER MAYOR O'NEILL
CHOICE OF DEMOCRATS
Nominated for Mayor at- the Tamest
Democratic Convention in Carbon
dale in Years Boom for E. J.
Burns Collapses Hnd Only Eour
Delegates Connor for Treasurer,

Dt Carbondale last nltslit uiuuilmously
nominuted for mayor, lion. James J.
O'Neill: for treaKinor, Patrick F. Con
ner, who now holds the same otllce,
and for controller, John V. Wheeler,
who is likewise in otllce.
This was the ticket which The Trib
une said, with certainty a few days
ago, would be placed In the Held for
the spring municipal election.
The nominees were chosen without
the least demonstration or sign of op
position. The proKramnie, decided up
on beforehand, went through without
a hitch. The feeling' that character
ized the few prior conventions was
absent and there wan not 11 rutlte nf
disturbance on the seeming sea of har
mony on which tlu Democrats floated.
There was no opposition to JII-. O'Neill
that is tin opposition that claimed
such dignity. There was a boom for K.
J. Burns for the olllce of mayor. ft
was wrapped in cotton; and tenderly
cared for by Hums' friends, but there
were not enough of these friends to
supply sulllclent warmth to keep the
liooin alive, and It perished ere the con
vention fairly started.
Untiring chairman, J. F. Uoylnii", pre
sided at the convention, which was
held In the Academy of Music, and
which attracted enough followers of the
Democratic party to almost (111 tip
tower floor. In the gallery were about
a score more.
After Secretary I'. V. Jtoititt read the
call, nomination", for permanent chair
man were called for. AVIIllnin I'eol was
named by James Hums, Ills was the
imly name proposed, and lu was unani
mously chosen. Joseph I'idgeon was
likewise named for secretary.
The credentials oC the delegate's were
received and there being no contests
the following were seated:

THE SUNDAY CLOSING.
Prosecutions Have Baised a Howl
from the Dealers Arrested.
The three prosecutions for violations
of tho Sunday observance law, as re
ported In yesterday's Tribune, has
greatly stirred the dealers who were
arrested, who have ralsint a cry that
they way will be heard lit the courts.
What thov mean Is that there will
likely ho a test made of the city ordi
nance under which they were arrested
and fined, it was not under tho old
bltlo lawp, but under a city law that tho
pollco department took action. Those
dealers seem Inspired with tho belief
that this law Is not a sound one, and
there Is an Inclination to have the court
pass on this piece of local legislation,
The first sign of this was after tho
flue was imposed. The guilty dealers
did not settle forthwith and wanted five
days in which to pay, thinking that tho
time allowed to appeal the enso applied
also to the payment of the line. They
also protested paying the flno of $5. In
sisting that it should be no more than
the minimum under the state law,
which Is ''.'. The trio cuutlnued with
their dilatory tactics until filler Mc
Audrew became aroused ami threatened
to have them lodged In jail, AVhen cou
fronted with this alternative, their
duusl-dellant spirit gave way and they
settled; but It was under protest and
with the Intimation that tho cases
would be appealed,
The feeling Is growing among the
cuiuly dealers that. In the face of the
Other open violations, they are being
discriminated against. Tho warrants
for thu arrest of other deulers will bo
served as soon us they can bo reached.

THE BANNER NIGHT.
Last Night's Crowd at. Columbia
Boys' Fair was tho Largest Yet.
Lust night was tho banner night so
far of the Columbia Hose company's
fair. Hurko's hull wits crowded from
the opening of the programme until
the last selection for dancing hud been
finished. Tho Artesian Hose company
and Crystal Hose company of Jerinyn
were the guests of the local lire lad
dies last night and a gala time was
made for them. The fair so far has
been a great success both socially and
financially nnd everything augurs well
for n big week. The programme last
night was us follows: Overture, Mo
zart orchestra; vocal solo, Miss Reglna
McCnbe; phiuo duet, Maine Hoylun and
Norah Nealon; violin solo with piano
accompaniment, Marie and Gertrude
Graham. Kvery number was encored,
tho programme being of unusual merit.
After the last number on the pro
gramme the Mozart orchestra com
menced with their entrancing dance
music. The half hour of round dancing
the fair patrons are given a chanco to
Indulge In has made a great hit. The
great novelty the Columbia boys have
Introduced In the plum tree has met
with unqualified success. The chnnees
on the many valuable presents on the
tree sell rapidly. The chances on tho
$50 at 10 cents a chance arc selling like
"hot cakes." And the chances on the
$10 worth of laundry are being bought
up at a great rate. Thu door prize last
night was a handsome parlor lamp.
Tonight the Hillside Hose company of
Forest City will be present at the fair.
A large crowd, il is expected, will ac
company them. The Excelsiors of
Olyphant, will also be present tonight .
An excellent programme will be car
ried out. It will be us follows: Coon

A VITAL QUESTION.
Will Be Discussed by Dr. Willinm
Kerby, on Friday Night.
Hev. Or. Willinm J. Kerby, professor
of sociology in the Catholic university
at Washington, D. C, will deliver his
celebrated lecture, "The Public and
the Labor Question," in St. Hose hull
on Friday evening, in the Knights of
This great lecture is devoted to the
explanation of the relation of the pub
lic to the great question, a description
of the efforts already made through
labor unions, to win the public oyer nnd
an exposition of the moral duty of all
citizens to co-operate lit this great
work. The following is a synopsis of
the thought in the lecture:
Thinkers and statesmen are gradual
ly coming to the conclusion, that the
labor question Is a vital question for
modern society. Employers and labor
ers have tried to win mastery over
each other, but the result of their
struggles is often in doubt.
Strikes, lockouts, Injunctions aro
terms of Avar, not of peace. A thought.
is gradually coming Into prominence
which seems to carry with It tho prom
ise of a wise, humane and satisfactory
solution of the labor question.
The thought Is that tho public Is a
party to the question; that the public
must interest itself nnd by alliance
with the moral and economic forces of
Industry bring justice, culture and
happiness to the laborer.
This little extract gives the reader an
Idea of the many good thoughts based
on observation, study and experience
which must bo contained In the lecture
Itself, which if the snle of seats con
tinue will undoubtedly be the largest
attended number so far given.

lire not regarded as dangerous.
Smith was on his way home when the
accident occurred, and wa3 climbing up
the slight grade on Cemetery street,
when he lost his footing on the icy
walk and fell heavily. The other vic
tim, whose injuries were reported In
The Tribune at the time, is yet at the
hospital. He was more seriously, though
not dangerously. Injured, a fractured
rib penetrating the lung.
IN THE PUBLIC EYE.
The publication of the report of the
executive committee of the semi-centennial
association, which showed n
nice balance, instead of a deficit,
brings into fuller view in the public
eyo one of the members of the com
mittee who bore himself with the most
modest demeanor, but who was among
the most energetic and diligent work
ers for the success of the project. This
member is O. F. Swigert. While tho
glorious success of the semi-centennial
cannot be credited to any one man or
to any class of individuals for It wns
the co-operation of the citizens that
went for its success yet the successful
working of many of tho details de
pended on tho activity of certain
spirits. Among these was Mr. Swigert
and though all along ho has modestly
disclaimed any credit and has frowned
at any attempt to laud him in recogni
tion of his unselfish activity, It is only
just that even at this late day he be
given the fullest meed of praise.
But this Instance Is not the only
one In which Mr. Swigert has come
forward In tho Interest of the public
weal. He has had quite a lengthy
career in the service of his fellow citi
zens, a career that has been marked
with unsollish accomplishments for
the city. Ho was in councils and nt
present he is on tho school board, the
director from the upper district. As
a councilman Mr. Swigert did more
than any one city father In bringing
about Improvements which, today, are
regarded as benefactions. Among these
were the Helnumt and River streets
pavements and sowers in various parts
of the town. Ills efforts In these direc
tions are nil the more creditable since
there was strong opposition to the im
provements. Today, however, he and
the few others who effected these Im
provements are given full credit nnd
pralso by those who opposed their ef
forts. Mr. Swigert Is one of the most
ardent workers In the ltcpublicuii party
anil Is a member of the city committee
of this party.
Among the positions in which it man
Is likely to make more enemies than
friends Is that of a railroad ticket
agent. Of course tho exception is
found occasionally where one of tlieso
ofllcials makes practically no enemies,
but warm friends of those with whom
ho dally has dealings. The exception
in this Instance Is J. Russell Shepherd,
who is in charge of tho city ticket of
llee of the Erie railroad,
Mr. Shepherd Is one of tho most
obliging persons that could bo met In
a position of this kind. Besides his
accommodating way, nnd his readiness
to give Information on any phase of
railroad travel, he Is uffublo nnd genial
and has the tact In making
your talk seem Interesting. These,
howover, urn not Mr. Shep
herd's qualifications. He- is a man
who, In the language of the street,
"KnojivH his little book" and can rail
road Voutcs and railway travels from
Cnrhondule to tho Klondike and back
to thu Gulf of Mexico. Ho Is a living
bureau of information that one who
travels enn consult with satisfaction
and profit. A representative such us
Mr. Shepherd has moven himself to
bo Is sure lo stand high in the estima
tion of his superiors. This he docs,
and those over Him do not have the
least reason to worry a'hput the Inter
ests of the Erie In Curboudiilo,
