Campaign In Allegheny Develops s
Strange Method In Italian Districts
That Candidates Fear More Than
the Attacks of Opponents.
Pittsburg, Sept. 12. Pittsburg lias n
"poisoned pencil" mystery. The storj

phases, as It marks the Invasion ol
Italian vendetta spirit Into American
politics. The Sicilian, whose desire
for revenge has reached the violent
stage, goes out and slashes the left

Italian assassination, substituting a
poisoned pencil for a knife, was un
looked for. Someone had been galng
about on the hill, making the mark

Those who have been warned of the
activity of the character damaging
pencil have their lieutenants at work
replacing the altered posters with new
ones, and a close watch is being kept
In an effort to discover the identity of

aspirants in the dark.
Most of the candidates would not
know of the slgnillcaucc of the pencil
mark if their Italian allies had not
told them, but it has been Impressed
upon those who have Italian enemies
that the placing of the pencil mark N
no trilling mark to be laughed at, as it
is bound to have Its effect upon the
minds of Italian voters.

PHYSICIANS OPPOSED TO HOS
PITAL. " They would not fight a flrst
class private hospital, but they don't
bolieve that It would pay. A state
hospital they would fight, becauife

AUTO VICTIM DIES.
Leslie Evans, son of Professor
Hnyden Evans, tho noted singer,
Scranton, died of a broken neck on
Thursday last, the result of being
struck by an automobile driven by
Herman Behrens. Young Evans was
removed to a Scranton hospital,
where ho never regained conscious
ness. He was the only son of Mr.
and Mrs, Evans and was 19 years of
The accident happened at Green
Ridge street and North Washington
avenue, Scranton, Tuesday, August
5. Evans was getting off a Green
Ridge Suburban car on tho way to
his homo after having completed
some shopping preparatory to his
departure Monday to take up a
course of study at the Massachu
setts Institute of Technology, when
Behrens ran him down. The wheel
of the auto passed over his nock
near tho base of the skull after he
had been thrown about ten feet by
tho collision of the auto.
Mrs. 'Evans, mother of the young
man, and Mrs. Behrens, wife of the
driver of the car, have both been
prostrated since the accident and
are receiving medical attention.
TO FOREST CITY
(Continued from Page One.)
they landed in the anthracite metro
polis last Sunday afternoon.
Forest City 12, Honesdale 4. That,
sad to relate, was the result at the
ond of seven innings.
"Everybody alert. On tho watch
all the time!" Such was the slogan
Captain Cavanaugh sounded to his
teammates at the outset. And they
lived up to the spirit of it, admirably.
" Joe " Miskell was so " alert,"
that ho only gave tho County Seaters
five hits. Besides that he struck out
Herbert Male got his bumps In the
second Inning. The Miners made a
getaway start of one run In the first
stanza. In the second, they corralled
live more runs. They tallied another
in the third, and were circling the
bases at such a rapid rate in the
fourth, that Captain Leslie Brader
went in to stop their mad rush.
Brader held the Miners down- to
three hits for the remainder of the
game. Maybe if he had gone in at
the start, the result might have been
Five County Seaters were hit by
pitched balls, Joe Mlskill being ex
ceptionally generous In this respect.
Richard Bracey's little boys were
blanked In the first four innings. In
the second their chances of scoring
were nipped in 'the bud, when Car
penter caught Dudley's fly in time to
throw the ball to Madden and retire
Polt. It was a corking double play.
Forest City made a killing in the
second. Mangan fum'bled Carpen
ter's grounder. Madden bunted.
Stratford was out on an Infield
bounder, Carpenter scoring. Joe
Miskell got to first on player's choice,
Madden being put out at the heme
With two down, Jacobs fumbled
Mangan's throw of Cavanaugh's in
field grounder. W. Miskell waited
for four bad ones. Kelly cleaned
house with a single to right, scoring
Cavanaugh and Miskell. Kelly stole
second. On Mangan's costly fumble
of Wodischek's infield hit, Miskell
and Kelly scored. The second canto,
certainly, was a weird exhibition of
the national game.
The County Seaters made two runs
in the fifth. With one down, Man
gan after fouling half a dozen balls,
one of which went right through the
umbrella of a spectator in left gar
den, who put up his rain protector
In the vain hope of stopping the ball,
finally slammed one into Madden,
which the latter failed to handle. Ho
took second on Miskell's wild throw
to first. Brader was hit by a pitch
ed ball. On a passed ball, Mangan
and Brader advanced to third and
second bases respectively.
Madden fumbled Sandercock's
grounder, and Mangan and Brader
waltzed home. In trying to steal
third, Sandercock was thrown out.
Jacobs was hit by Miskell, but Schil
ling fanned, and ended the session.
Richard Bracey's little boys made
two more In the sixth. Miskell
fumbled Polt's bounder. Dudley
walked. Bader fouled to Kelly. Male
singled to left, filling the bases.
Madden fumbled Mangan's grounder,
and Polt trotted home. Brader filed
to Wodlschek. Sandercock singled
to left, scoring Dudley. With the
bases filled again, Jacobs fanned.
In the fourth canto, when Brader
went In to pitch, Polt came in to
short, and Malo went out to center.
In trying to catch Dudley's foul
tip 'in th seventh, Leftfielder Wodl
schek split his fiugor, and gave way
to Stratford, Connelly going to cen
ter. " It's going to be a red hot game
today," said Manager Jos. Connelly
to the Citizen man. And it was.
Smarting under the sting of three
successive defeats, the Miners were
determined to win, and win they did.
Assistant Manager Richard Bracey
had Charge of the team. Accom
panying the nine were A. W. Larra
bee, Starrucca, candidate for tho Re
publican nomination for County
Treasurer, and a Citizen reporter.
Perhaps it was from the effects of
the scrumptious chicken dinner at
McLoughlin's hotel; perhaps it was
from the change of water; perhaps
it was because tho Taylor Jinx, en
raged at the County Seaters' falling
to show up at Taylor, Saturday,
came over to Forest City to hoodoo
Richard Bracey's little boys; perhaps
it was because Honesdale never could
win, when the tenth came on a
Sunday; perhaps oh, pshaw, what's
a game anyhow between friends?

GOING TO SCHOOL.
There lived a lad In Moscow,
Named Ivanltch Pacoskow,
Who went to school
And followed rule
Of old Professor Boskow.
His comrades were Wyzlnkskl,
And Feodor Duchlnkaki,
And Paderew Pollnkskl.
It took Professor Bo3kow
Full half a day In Moscow
To call the roll
And name each soul
Who came to him In Moscow.
To read and write did Boskow
Next teach the lads in Moscow,
But called to spell
They did rebel,
So queer were names in Moscow.
This roused the Ire of Boskow,
Who shook the small Pacoskow,
And Gortachoff Penoskow.
He flogged them all and sent them
Did old Professor Boskow',
Till they could well
Pronounce and spell
Each proper name In Moscow.

the opinion of tho Board that a

reinforced concrete with a footpath
14 feet wide. The length of the
bridge is 100 feet from abutment to
abutment, while tho span is 110
feet. It is represented as being very
artistic and would cost In the neigh

M. E. Simons, seconded by E. H.

reebmmend the plan drawn up by

FRED A. STODDARD.
Being a resident of one of the ex
treme northern districts of Wayne
county, which has never been repre
sented on the board of county com
missioners, and being also a con
tractor and builder, conversant with
concrete work and bridge building,
and further having a special interest
in a needed reduction of taxation, I
feel assured that I could discharge
the duties of the office economically
and satisfactorily in every way to
the people. Farmers and real estate
owners bear the heaviest and most
unequal share of taxation and should
be relieved by the burdens being
more equally placed on all classes of
property owners. To this end, if
nominated and elected, I will direct
my best efforts.
