THE SPRING ELECTION. Outlook for It Is Decidedly Inter estingMayor, City Treasurer, City Controller and Council men to Be Elected. AlthouKh the oincial count of the vote or Tuesday's flection has not jet been completed those who make politics a di o'i'slon, sludv or business are turn Int? tin Ir faoxs toward the municipal election wlik h will be hold in Feb ruary. It will he it ronUst full of Interest. A mavor. eltv treasurer, clly con troller nnd common councllmen in the odd numbered wards are to be elect ed. As the result will determine whether the city government Is to bo In the bunds of the Itcpubllcans or Democrat or some one else the fight will be spirited. The board of school coiiliol will not be disturbed by the conilns elec tion as no members of that body aw to t ' elected this year. The terms of two of the members of the board of sis who weie elected last spring will expire in June. Tlvy are F. S. Mark er and Kllas V. Evans. A decision or" the supreme court with reference to the legality of that board Is not ex pected until February at least. It Is not likely that candidates for membership on the board of six will be nominated this spring, but If the decision of the supreme court Is In favor of that body a special election will probably be held to fill the two vacancies that will exist alter June I next. Those who were behind the good government movement In the cam paign that has just closed will tak an active hand in the coming muni cipal light and members of the board of trade are out urging for a non-par-tNaii mayor. Tho committee of the board ol trad that has tho matter In charge met in tho board of trade rooms yester day and considered a lengthy report concerning the matter which will be presented at thu next meeting of the board. Tho outlook for the coining mun icipal etimpuign Is decidedly interest- A BEAUTIFUL SCENE. Italian Peasant Girls in Picturesque Venice. It Is well known that in Venice lan als take the place of streets, so that when our sltrnor goes down town to business and our' slguorla goes out shopping or calling, instead of hailing a passing ear they hail a passing gon dala in which they glide laviily and dieamlly away. The gondolier, he who propels and steers the graceful craft, Is therefore a personage of no small impel tance in Venice. In tho opera of the ' Clomloliurs'' tit" llrst scene is laid ill Venice alongside til1 Ornnd canal. As the curtain rises a croup of neasant girls in gay colored custome are discovered tylni; boquots of Powers and singing of gallant Gon doliers. The music throughout Is cliutifiiilng.

CORNELIUS SMITH FILES A PROTEST OBJECTS TO JUDGE ' QUNSTER RECEIVING WHOLE VOTE, Through His Attorneys, James Ma lion nucl His Son, J. Stanloy Smith, He Presents a Pctltlou to Court Setting Forth That Gunster the Republican Candidate and Gunster the Democratic Candidate Are Two Different Persons in the Eyes of the Law. When Judse Edwards began the of ficial compilation of Tuesday's vote yesterday uftcmoon, u protest was, pre sented by Cornelius Smith ognlnst crediting Judge- Gunster with tho com bined Republican und Dcmocratlo vote. 1 he protest was contained lu the fol lowing petition presented by James Million and J. Stanley Smith; In the matter of the election of Fred W. dunsler. Cornelius Smith, being duly sworn, says: He was the candidate of the In dependent Citizen's party for addition al law judge of the Forty.flfth Judicial district and as such a candidate was voted for at the last election, to wit., on the eighth day of. November, 1S9S. That the act of assembly approved July 1). 1S97, provides: 'Tpoii the ofll clal ballots transmitted as herein pto vlded by the secretary of the common wealth and county commissioners, and upon the ballots to be voted at any election, the name of any candidate shall not appear more than once by certificate of nomination or more than once by nomination papers." That according to snld provision a candidate's name can appear onlv In ono place or column on the official bal lot, and iiiion the ballot voted. WHAT HK HIOLIKVKS. That the deponent Is Informed and believes that a candidate can only have the votes cast in one place or col umn on said ballots counted tor him. That the nnnio of Fred W. (btnster, candidate for additional law Judge) ap pears In one place or column on said ballot, to wit: In the Republican col umn: thut. also, the name of Fied W. Gunster, for additional law judge, ap peals In another place or column on said ballot, to wit, In the Democratic column. Cornelius Smith. Now. lo wit., November 10, lMlS, the deponent objects to the counting of the votes cast in the Democratic col umn for Mr. Fred W. Gunster, whose name appears in the Republican col umn because the presumption of law Is that the otllclul ballot and the ballot voted are in legal form and that Fred W. Gunster. whose name appears in the Republican column Is not the same Fred W. Gunster, whose name appears in the Democratic column. Mahon ,fc Smith. Attorneys for defendant. The deponent, Cornelius Smith, re quests the court not to count the votes cast In the two columns of the ballot voted for Fred W. Gunster as one nnd the name person. That Is to say If the voles cast for Fred V. Gunster In the Republican column are counted for the Fred W. Gunster whose name appears In said Republican column, then the votes cast In the Democratic column shall not be for the same Fred W. Gunster. And In case the votes cast In the Democratic column shall be counted for the Fred W. Gunster, whose name appears In said Democrat ic co'umn then the votes cast In the said Republican column shall not be counted for the same Fred W. Gun ster. James Mahon, Attorney for C. Smith. TO BI-: PRESF.NTFD LATKR. Judge Fdwards stated to .Mr. 'Mahon that at present coutt was pimply tabu lating the vote and that It would be lime enough to consider the petition when the counting began. He also sug gested that Mr. Malum prepare an or der setting forth what the .xtlttouer wished the court to decree. When questioned as to the ultimate purpose of the petition, Mr. Mahon would not have anything to say. The suggestion that Judge Gunrter had a plurality In the Republican , column alone, and that even If he was not credited with the combined vote he would still be elected, brought from Mr. Mahon the lemark that they were dealing with one matter at a time and that that question would be taken up when the other Is disposed of. I'lLUrf A PROTEST. I. is very evident from a Blnnce at (In- table printed In yesterday's Tri bune thnt Judge Gunster was accred ited In the Republican column with many votes that were cas for him as tt Democrat. For Instance, the re turns indicate, that bo did no; reeeiv? a single Democratic vote Jn Avchbalil o.' tifty-two other voilng districts of the county. This of cours.- is prepos terous. The fact Is, no ap tnmiry yes terday revealed, that the eleellon offi cers in this dlstiiet tabulated the Gunster vote in one mac and chose the Rf imblican space beep us.- it was tb first to be encountered on ibe tally sheet. It is not at all unlikely that this has much to do with Mr. Uniith's pe tition. In case ho should suecei d In having1 the court declare that Judge Gunster could not be accredited with both the Republican and Democratic vole and that ho would have to be content with oil's or the other or both separately it would be Mr. bmlih'H next endeavor, doubtlessly, to secure a tecount of the ballets with ei view of decreasing Juig Gunster's vou- to a point less than lii-i Nl'MRER OF VOTi;.S Their- were 10,41.1 Republican votes innl 3.0", Democritb- votes cast for Judge Gunster.

Judge GtitislorV! total vote wast 13,4S7. Supposing that Judge Gum-tor's total vote was equally di vided between the two parties and It Is not unieasonuble t- nrcsumo that this w.is possible, he would nave tn each col u it, 1,7U vote?. This would Klve Mr. Smith a plurality of 3G9. Of course this Is all met- specula tion and founded on the very remote possibility of the supreme court read ing the Baker ballot law as Cornelius Smith read-t it. There iva-i also an Interruption to the olllclal count at the evening r.cs slon by Mr. Smith. When the south (Vftricl of I.tickawanna'townshlp wns reached Attorney Mnhon stepped be fore the court and presented a peti tion torn John G. Jennings setting forth that be was the watcher of the Independent citizen's party In the Mlnooka dl.Urlet: that when the counting of the bullots. was about to begin he was forcibly ejected from the booth, that over fifty volets in that dlstiiet assured him that they voted for Smith, while the rctutiiB credit hint with only 2S votes. He ask-'d that the ballot box be taken Into court and a recount made. Judge Kdward ruled that the alle gations of the petition were not sulllc ient to warrant lilm in ordering a re count. He suggested to Mr. Muhon that something more dellnlte be presented If It was desired that the court take ac tion in the matter. In order to give ample opportunity for llllng u new peti tion and presenting proofs, Judge Edwards- passed over the vote for Judge In the dlstiiet In question. LICHIGH TOWNSHIP REACHED. At adjournment last night at 9.00 o'clock the count had proceeded as far as Lehigh township. It Is expected that It will be completed tonight. Very few variances between the olllclal and open icturns were found. The only one of note wai In the vole of the First dis trict of the First ward of Carbondale, where Mr. Timlin lost three votes. The open icturns credited him with 23,whlle In the olllclal tally list only "') were. recorded for lilm. Judge Edwards Is assisted In the count by John M. Harris, VE. W. Thayer and M. J.

Chance conducted an orchestra concert last night at the Second Pres byterian church. It was one of the most delightful mtiHlcal affairs ever held In this city. The programme was of a high order and contained only In strumental numbers. The Sunday school orchestra of that church Is do ing excellent work and contains many members whose advance Is marked, under Mr. Chance's able direction. The ensemble' playing particularly In the Coronation March, from Meyerbeer, and in the Turkish March from Ht-eth-oven's "Ruins of Athens." was very ef fective. Despite the announcement that no encores woud be given, the orchestra was obliged to respond to three hearty recalls. Fted. WIdmayer'H beautiful violin solo was also warmly encored. Messrs. Stanton, McAudrew. Hausclnnan and Turn iccelved much praise for their excellent performance. Miss Mabel Ronnie's piano solo, by Liszt, was one of the most delightful features of the evening. She has excellent technique: and her phniflng, delicate shading and strong climaxes were all the work of a talented pianist. She responded with a bow to the hearty encore. Charles Doersam Is as fine an accomnanlst as he Is a pianist. His work at the piano was that of an urtls-t. A number re quested that the concert be repeated. GONDOLIERS FULL REHEARSAL First One Held Was Last Night at Lyceum. The lust fill rehearsal of tho '(Jon. dolicrs" at tho Lyceum was held last evening ant! the pcrfoiinance went oh' with flnct fleet.
