there is even more feeling and bitteraes
engendered than at rocb elections- The
election tomorrow will, without doubt.
be as hotly contested as any of n similar
character ever held in this city. There
are five candidates Messrs. T. O
Thomas, W. S- Knowlton.D. J. Sear. M
E. Sweeney and Dr. Berahardi all of
whoa are. and have been doing their best
to he elected. Each is conducting his
own ctaptiiJ, tsd it ia denied that a

than the Hinunz of tickets wnn two
names a sort of reciprocal agreement
with no special significance.
At was the case a year ago when Dr
C.C Carter squeezed through witn a
am all majority, tomorrow contest
l.kely to be perverted from its natural
chattel into a religious controversy
At that time the whole strength of a cer
tain organization known as the 'TVpa
ties or latterly the A. r. A' . was
thrown against Dr. Carter, but fortonate-
ly his friends discovered his impending
danger in time to defeat the cowardly at
tack. The hich crime charged against
tbe doctor was that of being friendly to
Catholics, an offense which it seems is an
unpardonable sin in the eyes of the mem
ber! of this society. Now it is Messrs
Thomas and Knowlton whom the A. P
A's. propose to antagonize, especially the
former, who is accused of being the m
stizator of the following resolution
passed at a meeting of the board of edu
cation April 24ih last:
Rtvlt4, That we. the members of the
board of education, are heartily in tym-
Dalhv with the movement of citizen in
supplying the American flag to the differ
eat school buildings, bet that they can
not permit such presentation in the name
of any political or religious order.
The above was passed at a special
meed 02 of the board upon information
that the A. P. A's were about to present
several fl to the schools. The board
and its president. Mr. Thomas, took the
broad and conservative ground that the
public school was a free institution,
owing allegiance to no religious or
political organization, and that any pre
sentation under the conditions proposed
would be Dl-adyised and detrimental to
the beat interests of the school. The
Sags were subsequently presented as
coming from citizens living in the vicin
ity of the school houses, and the matter
was dropped. The members of the se
cret society, however, seem to have
sworn vengeance upon Mr. Thomas in
particular and have singled him out for
It is hardly possible that they will suc
ceed in their purpose, however. Mr.
Thomas has made an able and conscien
tious member of the board. All his acts
have been actuated by the one si Dele
desire of improving the standard of oar
public schools. In the matter of select
ion teachers he has been governed solely
bj the qualifications of the applicants and
their claims for preferment. He has dis-
played no favoritism or prejudice. That
he is opposed by an organization whose
members belie the Americanism which
they boast to represent, is a special rea
son that he should be elected. There is
no room for secret political organizations
in this country, and especially those
which maintain that one man is
inferior and less deserving than another
on account of bis religions belief. It is
time that such sophistry and know-coth-icgism
The candidacy of Dr. Bernhardt is
probably the result of the objections
raised by German Lutherans to that por

conferring power on local boards to reg

How tbe Ladies Pat l Their Money oa
The grand stand was the place to see
women bet. Their wagers were not gloves
or caramels, were not made sub-rota, ot

When the bugle sounded for the third
