LARGE FUNERAL AT EXCHANGE The remains of Miss Mary Craig, who departed thiß life ou Thursday, were laid to rest Sunday afternoon from the late residence at Exchange with impressive ceremonies.

A POLITICAL JOKE. This little political joke from the Sroanton Republican may possibly be relished by some of our readers after the election: "A local political candidate got on a peauy-iu-tho-slot weighing machine the other day down at one of the rail way stations. He slipped in a peuuy, but the indicator didn't indicate his weight. He jumped up aud down. He shook the clock face indignantly. Then lie went and complained to an official in the vicinity. 'lt's a swindle,' ho shouted. 'lt's got my penny, h'gosii, and it won't weigh.' The irate poli tioian is very thin; he Is also a dem ocrat. The official looked looked him over aud remarked sympathetically: " When you dropped the penny there wasn't anything left to weigh!" AT HAZLETON. The Hazletou Standard tells about the jovial way in which the young folks of Hazletou celebrated the Hal lowe'en festival. The fantastic garbs seen on the streets were many aud unique. "The young ladies were par ticularly much in evideuce, wearing base ball uniforms, cowboy outfits, Indian costumes and various other forms of human habiliment." The Standard admits that "some of the girls looked decidedly vulgar carrying guus aud smoking cigarettes," but says "chey were allowed unrestrained sway and the most of the situa tion. " "POOR" POLITICS. One of our Scrantou exchanges—we have really forgotten which—tells of the business experience of a young friend of ours by the name of Vaughn who used to be quite active in politics but who for the last three years has devoted himself strictly to business. The result, according to the Scrauton publication, is that the young man is uow in receipt of an income about three times as large as his political emoluments amounted to in the other and younger days. The moral of this story seems to be : Get out of politics and stay out. May Condemn sewage System. Dr. Samuel G. Dixon, commissioner of the State board of health threatens to overthrow the whole sewage system of Suubury. It is"the desire of Dr. Dixou to keep the Susquehanna unpol luted. The Suubury dye works is doubtless the principal offender,as the waste from the plant, with its poison ous chemicals destroys the fish for a great distance down the rher, as do many of the city sewers which empty into the stream. Dr. Dixou desires a general sewage system for the entire borough. RISKY. Women are always doing extra haz ardous things. There was a young German girl, living in Brad dock, who came to this country tiiree months ago aud took service as a domestic. The other day she met a handsome young man for the first time. They were in troduced early ouo evening, spent the greater part of the night ill each oth er's company aud were married early next morning .in Pittsburg. This may . be a genuine rase of love at first sight btit an adventure of this sort always involves some risks for both parties. A Lady hunter. V Mrs. D. R.

PROCEEDINGS OF COUNCIL Tlio subject of amending the market ordinance as it relates to butchers,con tinued from the previous meeting, was discussed at some length Friday eve. by council, but no action was taken, although the subject is by no means dropped. Henry Divel, Charles Lyon, Joseph Smith and John Eisenhart, leading butchers of the town, were present and expressed themselves in no uncertain teriiH. They all took the view that the uon-resideut butchers have a de- oided advantage over resident butch ers; that the curbstone market, which was originally intended to be a farm ers' market, is now largely a butch ers' aud hucksters' market. In order to secure justice to all, the consensus of opinion seemed to be that the non resident butchers, all of whom it was alleged, purchase the meat they sell, should bo obliged to take out a license, if this could be done. Another plan suggested was that the ordinance be amended to limit the curbstone market to self-producers. Ou motion it was decided to hold a public meeting iu couucil room at 7 :30 o'clock ou Wednesday evening, at which time the butchers and mer chants of town should bo invited to be present to confer with the committees ou market and ordinance relative to amending the ordinance as it relates to butchers and hucksters to meet the popular demand. A communication was received from J. E. Turk, division superintendent of the P. & K. railway, relative to a re quest from the borough to carry the Ohurcli strfcet sewer through under the track at 15loom street. He requested that couucil fix a date for a confer ence between himself aud the commit tee on streets aud bridges. Ou motion of Mr. Bedea \Vodnosday next at 10:30 a. m.was fixed for the conference. A communication relating to the sower was received also from Division Engineer G. J. Ray, of the D. L & W. railroad company. The communi cation indicated that the D. L. W. compauy would readily grant the bor ough permission to carry the Church street sewer under its tracks. It, how ever, took the position that the D. L. & W. compauy could not reasonably be asked to bear the expense of the work as the borough is merely chang ing its water course from one aln-ady provided for by the D. L. & W. at the Ferry street crossing. Ou motion it was decided that no action be taken on Engineer Ray's communication uJ til after the couferouco with a rep resentative of the P. & K. railway company. Borough Electrician Newton Smith presented a statement of the expenses of operating the light plant during October.sAmong the items were 75 tons of coal at $2.50 per ton or $187.50. The total amount was $4lB 91. Mrs. Levers appeared before council urging that some actiou be taken to prevent the Hooding of the cellar of Iter residence at the corner of Church and Centre streets. On motion it was ordered that the matter be left in the hands of the committee on streets and bridges, which will make investiga tion at the earliest opportunity. On motion of Mr. Jacobs it was ord ered that all property owners on Church street having cellar drains running into the stree gutters be re quested to connect with the sanitary sewer. The following members were pres ent: Gibson, Sweisfort, Boyor, Dietz, Bedea, Angle, Russoll, Jacohs, Fiu nigau and Eisenhart. CITIZENS' MEETING HELD LAST NIGHT Some twenty-five citizens assembled in the council chamber last night in response to the invitation exteuded by council to meet with the committees of market and ordinance for the pu - pose of discussing a change in tlio market regulations. The attendance was not what was anticipated, but an exteuded inter change of thought took place, relating to the matter in hand, it was the con sensus of opinion that mauy abuses have crept into the curbstone market, and those present seemed divided as to whether the market ordinance should be amended or the market abolished altogether. The committees will roport what sentiment was discovered back tocouu cil, but it is doubtful if any actiou will be taken until a larger meeting shall be held. The following citizens were present at the meeting: Charles Lyon, John Eiseuhart, Lewis Dietz, Henry Divel, j John Doster, T. W. Wiutersteen, Ed ward F. Bell, Joseph Sperring, Isaac Gross, Howard Moore, W. K. Miller; ! also the following councilman, mem bers of the Committees of market and ordiuauoe, George Jacobs, Jacob Boy ; er, James Finuiaau, Jacob Dietz, and jA. C. Angle. Burgess W. J. Rogers | was also present. St. Hubert's Fair. St. Hubert's Fair continues to be , well attended. A fine lot of religious articles such as Prayer Books, Ros aries, etc., are for sale.

FRIDAY. NOVEMBER 9, 1900. GOOD ROADS IN HOUR The Intelligencer is in receipt of the following statement showing the status of Montour county with rela tion to the Sproul good roads law,sent by the State highway commissioner, Joseph W. Hunter: The following districts in Montour county have Hied applications for State aid in improving 49,668 lineal feet of roads under the .Sproul good roads law of 1908, which wa* later superseded by the a3t of assembly, ap proved May Ist, 1905. Valley, 8,681) feet; Mahoning, 4,548 feet ;Valley, 500 feet; Danville, 5i,0H6 feet: Liberty, 6,160 feet;Vallev 10,560 feet; Limestone 6,600 feet; Limestone 5,380; Derry .0,189 feet; Total, 49- 663 feet, or nearly nine aud one-half miles of roads. All of the above districts are town ships with the exception of Danville, which is a borough. The county co-op erated with all the townships in ap plying for State aid, agreeing to pay an equal sharo of the costs of con structing the roads with each district. In making application Danville bor ough agreed to pay one-fourth the cost, thus relieving the county of any expense in connection with the con struction of their roads. The following road was constructed by the Maryland company, of Phila delphia, Pa., under the act of April 15th, 1903, the State paying two-thirds of the cost: 4,550 feet of road, 18 feet wide, in Mahoning township, extend ing from the northern line of Danville borough, on the road to Mausdale, to the lino between Mahoning and Val ley townships. Total cost of construc tion the State's share being 15,519.89. The following road was constructed by Fiss & Hartmau, of Shamokiu Dam, Pa., undor the Act of May Ist, 1905, the State paying three-fourths of the cost: 3,68G lineal feet of road, 18 feet wide,in Valley township, extend ing from the line between Valley and Mahoning township .to Mausdale. Total cost of construction 15,044.64, the State's share being $3,783.48. Plans, estimates and specifications have been prepared and the State high way department is ready to advertise for bids on the following roads, as soon as the Borough authorities notify them that they are satisfiod with the estimate aud uro willing to proceed with the work : 1,200 lineal feet of brick paving, 20 feot wide, aud 813 liueal feet of ma cadam, 16 feet wide, iu Danville bor ough, extending from the intersection of Contre and Mill streets, along Mill street in a northerly direction to the Mahoning township line. The amount of niouey available for road building purposes in Montour county, until Juue Ist, 1907, issl3,- 826.97. The 1907 uud 1908 apportion ment, amounting to about $5,155.81, becomes available on the first of next Juue, making a total of about $lB,- 982.78 for use until .Tune Ist, 1908, at which time the 1908 aud 1909 appor tionment, amounting to about $5,155.81 falls duo, making a grand total of about $24,138.59 available until June Ist, 1909. At an average cost of SB,OOO per mile it will require an expenditure of ab<£ut $76,000 to construct the nine and one-half miles of roads covered by the above applications.the State share of which will be about ss7,ooo,where as Montour county's entire apportion ment to Juno Ist, 1909, amounts to but #24,138.59. This leaves a deficiency of about 132,861.41, and, unless the next legislature makes a substantial good roads appropriation, it will be impossible for the State highway de partment, to construct all the roads for which State aid has been applied, not taking into ensideratiou the ap plications which may be made by the various districts in Montour county during 1907, 1908 and 1909. HARRY FOX BADLY INJURED Harry Fox, of Welsh Hill, met with a serious injury while working in Rloouisburg yesterday. He is employed in the car shops at that place and was assisting In tearing down old cars. AH one of these was being demolished the truck when released ran down upon hiiu. Mr. Fox foil ami the wheels ran oyer his left foot. He was too much injured to walk and was placed on a cot and carried to the oflioe of a local physician, where it was found that the anklo was dislocated and the bone of the foot was split.

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 7. The reform movement iu Philadel phia anil throughout Pennsylvania re ceived a sereve blow iu Tuesday's elec tion. The latest figures show that ev erywhere in the city and the State the Fusion party opposed to the regular Republican was either badly defeated or had its last year's vote greatly re duced Edwin S. Stuart, of this city, the Republican candidate for governor against Lewis Emery, Jr., the Fusion nominee, ran very strong everywhere and his plurality may reach 75,000. Last year the fusionists carried the State for State treasurer by a plurality of 88,000. In Philadelphia Stuart ran ahead of his ticket and carried the city by a plurality of 82,328. The complete figures for governor iu this city are Stuart 123,493: Emery 91,165. Allegh eny county,which includes Pittsburg, gave Stuart an estimated plurality of 28,000. Robert S. Murphy, for lieutenant governor; Robert K. Young, for au ditor general, and Henry Houck, for secretary of internal affairs, the other candidates on the Republican State ticket,were also elected by pluralities slightly under that of Stuart. ROTAN ELECTED. S The unexpected result of the elee . tion in Philadelphia was keenly felt by the reform party. The principal light in the city was made for the office of district attorney, and it was one of tlx) bitterest iu the political history of the couuty. The leaders of the City party, which had effected fus ion with the Democrats aud Prohibi -1 tiouists on the local ticket,felt certain that D. Clarence Gibboney, their can i didate for district attorney, would ; win, but the figures show that Samuel P. Rotau, his oppoueut, carried the city by 12,124. The Republican can didates for city treusurer aud register i of wills were alßo elected by abont the same plurality. 11 DEMOCRATS GAIN FIVE lucomplete figures from the thirty two congressional district of Pennsyl vania indicate that the Democrats gained five congressmen, which will I make their delegation in the next house six instead of one. It is possible i that official fignres may reduce the Democratic gain slightly. The next legislature will remain heavily Republican, although the Democratic aud reform representation . will be larger. A uotable feature of the campaign . iu Pennsylvania was the success of . the United Mine Workers of America, , which organization entered the polit . ical field for the first time in this I State. The latest figures show that . the miners will be represented in the next congress by two of the officers of ,; the organization and in the Legislat . ure by about a half dozen members of i the union, all of whom were candid , ates on the Democratic ticket. The miners' representative in Cou -5 gress will be William B. Wilson, iu . ternatioual secretary-treasurer, who defeated Congressman Elias Deemer, t Republican, iu the Fifteonth district j by 700 majority aud Thomas D. Nic j bolls, district president of the uppei . i anthracite coal field, who defeated Congressman Thomas H. Dale, also Republican, in the tenth district. • President John Mitchell, of the min ers' union, broke his rule against tak : ing active part in politics and stump . Ed both district for the officers of the . union. HAJORITIES IN MONTOUR Local Officers All Democratic Ex t cept Williams for sheriff 1 The vote for Montour county oflic * era, as shown by the complete returns s iu the table on page 3, resulted in a 1 victory for the Democrats in each in f stance except for the ofltico of slier iff, - where D. C. Williams, Republican, - carried the couuty with a comfortable J lead. For legislature, R. Scott Ainmer i man, the presout incumbent, defeated 1 Ralph Kisner by a majority of 542. In e tfhe associate judgeship race Hon. - Lloyd W. Welliver, of Exchange, lead r Hon. Charles A. Wagner, who was re t ceutly appoiuted by Governor Penny packer upon the death of Dr. S. Y. Thompson, by 146 votes. D. C. Wil liams polled almost a phenomenal vote in the borough of Danville, and won ont over Calvin ShuJtz by a majority of 459. For register and recorder W. L. Sidler, Democrat, who now holds that office, polled 1933 votes. Squire Robert C. Auten defeated Henry Kearus for jury commissioner by a majority ot 285. EVANS HAS 24! HAJORITY Complete Vote of Three Candi dates in Two Counties. According to the latest figures ob tainable, which include every voting presinct in the district, the standing of the three candidates is as follows: MONTOUR COUNTY. Evans 1149 Herring 972 Harman 655 COLUMBIA COUNTY. Evans 3825 Herring 1964 Haiman 8578 This count, which will likely stand as the correct one, gives Mr. Evans a majority in the district of 241. McHENRY HAS 2500 HAJORITY John G. McHenry, for congress, de feated Hon. E W. Samuel,the preseut incumbent, by a majority of about 2500 in the district. McHenry ran well ahead in all the counties in the dis trict except Northumberland,the home county of Dr. Samuel, where lie was beaten by a small margin. The vote in the counties resulted as" follows : MONTuUR COUNTY. McHenry 1541 Samuel.. 1218 COLUMBIA COUNTY. McHenry 4457 Samuel . 2474 NORTHUMHEKLAND COUNTY. McHenry 6651 Samuel 6804 SULLIVAN COUNTY. Last evening it was not possible to obtain the complete vote for Sullivan conuty, but it is estimated on good authority that the county went for McHenry by a majority of about 400. ALWAYS WITH US. pur State oxchanges bring in ac counts of numerous accidents happen ing to hunters, some of them fatal. It is probable that tragedies of this sort will happen as long as there is game to hunt and ignorant or Inexperienced or impetuous Individuals to hunt it. A LARGE VOTE POLLED Not within many years has au elec tion occurred in which such absorb ing iuterest centered in practically all the offices to be filled aud during the oampnigu of which such hard fought battles were waged aud so much hard woric was doue by the candidates per sonally. Naturally the interest suffic ed to bring out a large vote. The weather conditions, too, were posi tively ideal and not ouly iu the bor ough. but also iu -the rural precincts the voters turned out en masse aud very nearly a full vote was polled. In the borough a number of wage earners, owing to the shut down at the Read ing Iron works, are temporarily enT ployed out of town aud allowauce has to be made for the absence of inauy of these,who did not come home to vote. Voting was slow during the day, but at most of the polling places the rush came on between five and seven o'clock. It would be hard to recall a time when party lines were more generally disregarded. It was no secret during the day that independent voting was the rule and even the knowing ones were at sea as to what the result might be. Candidates and workers alike were dubious and they could not con ceal their doubt. That the general un certainty was justified is apparent in the unexpected pluralities that show up in the results.

NO 7 11l LABOR D9BITM Mill street last night was the scene of a unique demonstration the first of I its kind which so far as can be recall ed ever took place in Danville. It wan purely a labor demonstration, gotten up in the interest of organized labor. [ That it was a successful and well-man aged affair speak* well for the intel ligence and thorough organization of the working men. The demonstration was gotten up by the Iron Moulders' Union. Others in line were the Stove Mounters' Union aud the Amalgamated Association of ; Iron Steel aud Tin workers. In line were about one hundred moulders, some thirty stove mounters, besides over a hundred members of the A. A. of I. S. & T. W. The music was a conspicuous feature of the demonstration. Besides the Mechanicsville band the Washington , drum corps and the junior stars were in line. The nature of the demonstra tion was strikingly indicated by the transparencies borne in the parade. The largest of these carried at the head of the column bore on one side the motto: "In Union there ia strength" and on the other side, a similar motto with the addition: "How do you stand?" The parade formed at the Washing ton hose house and with the Moulders' and Mounters' union in line marched down East Market street to Mill street and thence to the armory where the members of the A. A. of I. S. & T. W fell into line. The columu then marched back over Mill street and across the river bridge, countermarch ing to the armory. Fire works were shot off aud red light was burned on the street as the parade passed. The best of order prevailed. An official of the Union last night emphasized the fact that none of the labor organizations in line was in any sense political and that the demonstra tion had no relation whatever to any thing connected with the election. Whatever features were in the parade tiiat seemed to have been inspired by politics, the official stated, were not authorized by the organization. j PERSONALS! j Charles Hauver, of Suubury, spent Sunday with relatives in this oity.
