' cnnvenlenco to voters and unneces sarily burdening tho election olllcers. Members of all parties must admit that it is out of reason to havo the work of the election boards prolonged until almost daylight after an election, when a system for prompt returns can be established by Blniply d.Vlding the watds. It is not intended that thore shall be any gerrymandering. Politics has nothing to do with tho matter and op position based upon such an Idea is a weak and silly claim of short-sighted people. Surely a division of tho wards can In no wiso change the political complexion of th6 town. The Sunday News, after opposing the division under thel party lash, has at last honestly acknowledged that .the First, Third, Fourth and Fifth wards should be divided, leaving only the Second ward out of the question A conceding of four-ttths of tho claim should not be overlooked by tho viewers, and it is not likely that It will escape attention, as the viewers are men of intelligence and can see as far as the next when reason js called into play.

At about ton o'clock last night Chief Burgess Losslg was nrousod from slumber to givo two young men in tho lockup a hearing. Ho hastened lo respond to tho call and tho first younir man was called from his coll. Ho said i "I was walking along East Contro streot when tho other fellow flrod a dead rat at mo and hit mo." "He fired a dead rat, did ho'?" askod tho Chiof Burgees, as he wroto tho young man's name in his book. "Yes, sir." "And what did you do." "Woll, I spoke to him about it and ho insulted mo. Then I hit him." "Y.ou hit him ?" "Yes, sir." "Whero is tho other follow?" asked tha Burgess, turning lo Folicoman Williams, Prisoner number one, who was John Giblin, stood asido and Fred. Uildorbrandt stepped lrni a coll. Ho said, "A follow threw a dead rat at mo and I pickod it up and throw it back. Tho fellow dodged and the rat hit Giblin.1 In answer to a question of tho Burgess, rouceman Williams said, "When 1 ar rested thom Giblin had Uildorbrandt down on a collar door uud was putting tho boots to him." "Theywero fighting, thon?" said tho Burgess. . "Yes.'sir." "Welloys,- if you each' you'may,'go homo. "But tho other follow pay four dollars Btruck first with tho rat," interposed ono of Giblin's friends. "Yes, I know, but thoy wore both light ing on tho etreot, and that is a borough of fense" By this timo 0 rolatlve of Hildebrandt's arrived and wanted witnesses brought. The Chief Burgess said that thoy could havo another caso boforo a 'squiro if thoy wished, but tho flnoa would havo to bo paid, That fighting on the streots was tho caso under consideration and a caso on tho rat could bo takon before a 'squire. Giblin'B father thon offorod himself as bail for payment of tho fino on Monday night, but the Burgess said ho wanted cash, and not bail. Finally Air. Giblin paid tho fine and loft tho lockup promising to put his voto against tho Burgess if bo runs for ofUco again, Tho Burgess then turned to Hildobiandt and, not receiving tho lino, ordorcd him to bo locked up. As tho door was closod Hil- lobrandt's rolativo .stopped up and said, Never mind locking him up, I'll pay tho fine." And in ho handed tho four dollars to tho Chiof Burgess ho said, "I would rather givoyou a doso of poison than glvo you this." This angered tho Burgoss, who ex- claimed, "Whatl Poison 1 1 Poison what? PoUon who?" Never mind," said Hilderbrandt, as he started for tho door. What d'd you say about poison ?" con tinued the official. "You had bittor look out, or you will.go in. You poison 60ino- body, eh ?" But tho lockup was soon clearod and tho BurgObS was left with eight dollars in hi pocket. II a borough official wants to perform his duty ho must oxpect to incur coutider- ablo ill-will," remarked n bystander to a reporter. "Thoro was only ono way to satisfy all tho parties in that case and that was to dismiss tho principals without a fine. and thon Burgess would be put on tho rack by tho Borough Council."

Items Interesting Concerning tho County Political Affairs. Pottsvillo is now hcadquartors for tho judgeship business. Two judges are to bo elected next fall. Judge David B. Greon's commission will oxpiro in 1892 and an olection will be neeoseary for tho recently created Or phans' Court judgeship. Tho chances are that Judgo Green will succeed himself. At least such sooms to bo tho dosiro of two thirds tho people, irrespective of politics. In fact the Democratic leaders aro soriously contemplating advUing that no candidato be put up against him. Tho candidates on tin Democratic sido for the Orphans' Court are quite numerous and the fight in thfrt cnmj. promises to be an interesting one. Tho Shrievalty continues n bone of con tention among a large numboj of Demo crats and there will bo a regular Kilkenny fight when tho ball opens. When the German district is hoard from tho fight will wax warraor. Nothing doflnlto has takon shapo regard ing tho Poor Directorship.

It would soem that tho next Diroctor must como from tho west end and this, of course, gives Leiningor, whoso term oxpiros in 1802, hopo that he will succood himself. I ho Congressional olection is at some distance, but considerable shaping is going on. It is staled upon what scorns to bo very good authority that Jamos J. Franoy, of town, will again enter tho arena and his frionds say hw will mako tho nomination and Hon. James B. Beilly will bo relegated to tho rear. A Surprise.
