Poles Arrested for Sunday's Rioting Pay from $15 to $30 Each in Police Court. Follce court was crowded yesterday at the hearing of the rioters arrested Sunday at the Polish Catholic church. Mayor Ilalley presided and' was any thing but lenient with the offenders. Tho prisoners would have preferred being bound over for court and expect ed that thin would be done, but the authorities deemed nummary punish ment the more efficacious In their case. Experience, the police claim, proves the wisdom of this course, for It was thought that through the pocketbooks of the offenders the most effective pun ishment could be meted out. Mrs. Annie Slllkoskl and Mrs. Volun tina Ventllne were fined $15 each. Mrs. Josephine Chonoski, the other of the trio of women, did not appear. She sent word that one of her ribs was broken and that the doctor would not allow her to move. She forefelted the $25 deposited as bond for her appear ance. SOME OP THE LEADERS. Kasimlr Bondzius and John Pedrlck were lined $30 each. W. Snlter and Stanislaus Strumonlcz, who, while they did not take an active part In the con lllct, were known leaders of the dis turbing element and were heard incit ing the women to resist the officers. They were fined respectively $15 and $20. Anthony Swlnski and Joseph Uibono witca were fined $20 each. Savllan Hrechlza, who was arrested Saturday night for being implicated in the riot, was fined $16. He had an open knife in his pocket when taken into custody. All paid their fines with money sub rcribed nt a meeting held Sunday night by the nntl-Aust element. Warrants are out for three of the leaders of the warring clement and the names of all Implicated In Sunday's af fair are being secured with the inten tion ot bringing them to trial.

THEY REPUDIATE THE OFFICERS Because They Were Foisted on the Club by Alleged "Snap" Work? Also Because Objectionable Per ous Were Among Those Chosen, and Also Bccanse It Was a "City Hall" CroivU--A Smile and Merry Twinkle That Vanished. It was a hard blow to Mr. Boland. There had been mutterlngs of dis content and certain developments had caused him to suspect that there were breakers ahead, but he was wholly un prepared for them. It came at the close of last nlt'lu's meeting of Mr. He land's Bryun and Sewall club. During the week tho city treasurer scoured the county for free sllverltes who had formerly been identified with the Republican party and last night had them on exhibition at the meeting. There were fully six of them and each was billed to make a speech. As one after another at Mr, Boland's invitation not up and told the part'eur fault he had to find with sound money or the virtue he had discovered in free sllverlsm, Mr. Boland would cast his eye over at the reporter's desk to see if the scribes of the sound money press were taking notes. There was a merry twinkle in his eye and a mischievous smile on his face which as much as said: "Just toll your gold bugs about that In the morning." Once ho provoked much laughter and nppluuse by hoping "that The Tribune reporter would make mention of the larg'i number of Republicans who were present." JUST AN INCIDENT. There was a little Incident which Mr. Boland did not call the reporter's at tention to. It was this way: At the previous meeting of the club a committee on permanent organization was appointed. The committee at tho opening of Inst night's meeting sub mitted lt3 report and It was adopted without discussion or dissent. . The re commendations were C. O. Boland, president; L. P. Wedeman, vice presi dent; D. J. Reedy, corresponding sec retary; II. T. Koehler, treasurer; exe cutive committee, Edward Merrifleld, W. J. Burke. A. T. O'Boyle. E. J. Ly nett, P. J. Nealls, D. P. Replogle, W. W. Baylor, J. P. Hammeps, Joseph O'Brien, D. P. Battle and- E. F. Blew itt. As the meeting was drawing to a close Chairman Boland requested the mem bers of the executive committee to wait after the meeting, as there was some business for them to attend to. "Executive committee?" queried Ben Castles. "Has an executive committee been elected?" "Yes, sir," answered the chairman. "Tonight?" again queried Mr. Castles. "I guess It was before you came In," remarked Mr. Boland. "I guess It was," said Mr. Castles. Then he proceeded to tell them what he thought of their way of doing busi ness. Ho had, he explained, attended every meeting of tho club and It was never the custom to begin business much before 8.30 o'clock. On this occa sion he arrived ot the hall at eight min utes past eight and found that the most Important business of the club had been transacted. He had also learned that the meeting had skipped the first two orders of business In order to get at the report of the committee on permanent organization. MR. HONAN SATS THINGS. "It was a snap committee," Inter rupted P. J. Honan, who sat next to Mr. Castles. "There was something unusual about it," said Mr. Castles. "There are men on that committee whom I would not have voted for." "There Is Just this about it," again broke In Mr. Honan, reaching for his hat, "it's a city hall committee and I repudiate it." There were cries of "Hear! henr!" and as Mr. Honan moved toward the door he wns followed by many others who took that means of showing their sym pathy with Mr. Honan's sentiments. As Mr. Honan stood on the threshold he shouted out loud enough to be dis tinctly heard above the din about the chairman's desk: "A few men can't run the Democratic party. Backsliders and pledge-breakers have no place in the ranks, anyhow." Mr. Castles was trying to get nn audi ence, but the chair refused to argue the question Bny further. There was a gen eral protest against this amid shouts of "Give hlin a hearing," and the like. Mr. Boland Insisted, however, that the ex ecutive committee had to meet and he could not allow an unnecessary prolong ation of the club meeting. The crowd filed out slowly, some up holding the chairman and others de claring that they did not purpose to have anything objectionable sprung on them if they knew it. Those who spoke at the meeting were C. Comegys, Edward Merrifleld, D. J. Reedy, D. P. Replogle, Dr. J. P. Slck ler, L. P. Wedeman, W. J. Burke, Michael Duffy and Nathan VIdnver. Mr. Burke cautioned the county De mocracy not to allow any " 'snake' to creep Into the resolutions." Mr. Duffy offered a motion that the club recom mend to the convention that no candi date be named who would not subscribe to the Chicago platform. His motion was not put, however. NOBODY KNOWS. Not Even a Guess on the Outcome of Today's Democratic County Convention. Just what today's county Democratic convention is going to develope no one can say. Unless a slate is made this morning there will be a free-for-all fight. There are various combinations on the minor ofllces but the head of the ticket Is not being figured In on any of the deals as far as is known. There is a suspicion that the city hall ring has something up its sleeve and will try to force it through In the con fusion that will surely reign. It looked last night as if the Demo crats were all at sea. The only settled thing was that School Controller T. J. Jennings would be selected as chair man. Nathan Vldaver declared himself ready to take up the congressional fight but would not, he said, make any fight for the nomination. He would not deny that he was anxious for the honor. There may be an effort to In duce Edward Merrifleld to take It, but he has not, as far as Is known, been ap proached on the subject. For county commissioner there an Wife of the Great Republican Leader Adds Her Testimony to That of Thousands of Others for Paine's Celery Compound. Among the testimonials received this year by the proprietors of that greatest of all remedies, Paine's celery com pound, are found many, as usual, from families of national reputation. One of these Is the following sincere statement that bears the signature of Agnes B. Quay, the wife of the Hon. Matthew 8. Quay, United States Sena tor, whom Pennsylvania so urgently named for the Presidency at St. Louis: "Washington, May 15, 1S96. "Messrs. Wells & Richardson, Burlington, Vt. "Dear Sirs: My daughter and I have been using your Paine's Celery Com pound this spring with most beneficial results. "Those In an over fatigued condition will find It a gentle stimulant, and an William J. Burke, M. E. Clarke, John Demuth, Scranton; M. F. Gllmartin, Carbondale; James Butler, Mooslc. For auditor: P. W. Costello, Robert E. O'Boyle, Fred W. Warnke, William Koch, James J. Coleman, Scranton; Judson Callcnder, South Ablngton; E. J. Ward, Moosic; Paul Aten, Newton and William Flynn, Olyphant. Every one of these men will have their fol lowing and the contests promise to be warm. It Is not likely that any of the candidates will be willing to be a mar tyr for the sake of the ticket's geogra phical or racial complexion; and as a consequence It Is liable to be decidedly one-sided. The convention of the Second district Democrats will be called upon to choose between Henry T. Koehlcr and Frank Moeller for representative. The oth ers whose names have been mentioned have withdrawn. A HORSE A MINUTE. Sold by Wnldron, the Great Canadian I orse Shipper. Waldron, the man who has the repu tation of selling a horse n minute, will arrive here Tuesday night with two car loads of horses. The horses he ships are Canadian stock and those who have used a Canadian horse know that for strength, bone and durability they have no equal; they ore known the world over for the hardship they can stand and for that reason they are easy to sell. They are thoroughly acclimated and domesti cated and are ready for Immediate use. One car will consist of draft teams, chunk and single workers, express and general purpose horses. The others will contain ronders, coachers, pacers and trotters. In fact all kinds, from the plow horse to the sulky trotter. Everyone of them must and shall be sold for whatever they will bring to close them out. The weather will have no bearing i.n this tab', ns It will take place rain or shine. It will pay you to come miles to attend this big sale. Don't forget the date and place, Cusick's stables, next Thursday, at 1 o'clock promptly. Go with the crowd and own a horse at your own price. John . Woolley. Few platfofm orators today can com pare with John a. Woolley. His rare gifts, his keen sympathies, his Incisive thought, his unimpeachable personal character and his thorough training, make him a powerful advo cate of reform. He has, with the! courace of his con victions, a tactful way of presenting the strongest truths in the most force ful manner. Mr. Woolley will speak In the Acade my Thursday night.

The relative merits and efficiency of Paine's celery compound In making peo ple well Is clearly shown In the char ter of the people who today rely on It to cure Insomnia, nervous debility, persist ent headaches and a rundown condition. It Is the power of rapid repair of the tissues that makes Paine's celery com pound the great saver of life that It Is. It brings Just the needed nutriment to the distracted nerve tissues all over the body and Increases the volume of healthy blood so that a breaking down of some vital part is averted. While taking Pnlne's celery compound there Is a general building up of the deep-lying tissues all over the body, and a throwing oft' of unsound elements that clog and Interfere with its healthy activity.

Tho story of the discovery and un paralleled success of Paine's celery com pound Is the story of a high purpose, steadfastly followed; the reward for the life-long study of the nervous system in health and disease. Prof. Edward E. "Phelps" discovery In the laboratory of the Dartmouth Medical School proved a monumental work In the art of dealing successfully with many diseases that were up to that time held to be obsti nate of cure. Today rheumatism and neuralgia, heart palpitation and ner vous dyspepsia are taken In hand by Palnu's celery compound with the abso lute assurance of freeing the system of them entirely. In this greatest of all remedies there Is hope for every person distressed by symptoms of dyspepsia, Impure blood, failing vigor or low nervous condition.
