The attempt of the Democratic
press to smirch the character of Post
master General Wanamaker by mak
ing It appear that ho was Implicated
In the Quaker City bank wrecking,
etc., has failed miserably. Mr. Wana
tniker's prominent position in publlo
nflatra, coupled with tho known fact
that he was customer of tho Keystone
Bank quite naturally led to some
gossip connecting his name with tho
unfortunate institution, but his
straightforward statement before the
Councils' Committee of Philadelphia
was sufllclent to satisfy the most
skeptical that thero was nothing in all
his transactions that could reflect in
the least upon his character and that
ho had no relations with Bardsley.
Bluce Mr. Wanamaker has been in
President Harrison's cabinet he has
been a constant target for abuse at the
hands of the Democrats and when
his name was mentioned In connec
tion with the Keystone Bank they
were rejoicing that the golden op
portunity had arrived; but they were
doomed to disappointment.
Referring to Mr. Wanamaker the
Philadelphia Times (Democratic) says :
"The full statement which he made
yesterday before the Councils' com
mittee, shows very clearly what well
informed persons in Philadelphia
have never doubted, that Mr. Wana
maker's relations with the bank were
exclusively those of a profitable
customer; that he had no relations
whatever with Bardsley, and that he
knew no more of the condition' of the
bauk before Its failure than any other
depositor. Beyond this, Mr. Wana
maker's relations with the Keystouo
Bank are simply those of one of .the
victims of Lucas' deception. Lucas
went into the Beading syndicate and
agreed to deposit money In tho bank
for this purpose; subject to Mr. Wana
maker's order, He also put up bank
stock iu lieu of cash; After Ixie death,
when Mr. Wanamaker had checked
out tho money, he found that Lucas
had not made tho deposit he had
agreed to, and Mr. Wanamaker had to
make good the overdraft. He prop
erly held tho stock as hla security
for the money that Lucas had agreed
to furnish but did not, and he contin
ued to hold it until it was represented

to him that if he returned it to Lucas'
estate it would help in the rehabilita
tion of the bank. In all of this Mr.
Wanamaker Appears, as anyone who
knows him would expect him to ap
pear, as tho liberal man of business
deallug generously with the bank, and
neither seeking nor accepting any
unusual favors from It, though the
bank officials asked unusual favors of
him, and himself a sufferer from tho
dishonesty that Anally wrecked the
bank. There is nothing whatever in
the whole business that reflects In any
way on Mr. Wanamaker, and his un
reserved statement ought to put an
end to the foolish gossip that has so
persistently dragged his name into

Battle Ory A Oommlttoo That
Agreed to Dlsagroo Maps
in Abundance.
The docllo, Rood-naturod, just, people
laving Democrats woro out in force yester
day to moot tho viewers appointed by tho
Pottsville court to dotormino tho advisa
bility of making a re-division. Thoy
pushed thumsolves to the front on all
occasions and lost no opportunity to Im
press upon tho minds of tho viowors that
they had assembled to sea that a division,
if it should bo decided upon, would bo u
just one ono with which tho people would
be satisfied.
A stranger overhearing their protesta
tions would be impressed with tho idea
that tho Republicans of tho town are on
tho "peoplo bo d d" sido of tho houso
and that tho Democrats are tho only boings
who cherish a lovo for tho peoplo.
But the roal reason for the largo out
pouring of Democrats was to drown tho
Republicans by swooping all motions, in
caso any should bo mado. When tho
viewers told them that thoy had como to
town to hear the sentimonts of tho peoplo
on tho question of dividing tho wards and
not to act as presiding ofijeers of a mass
meeting, several Democratic Jaws droppod
Tho viewers, who are Col. J. G. Frick,
J. H. Mudey and A. B. Cochran, throe
Pottsville gentlomon. Col. Prick, tall,
orect stalwart and with military bearing,
although his hair and board aro white as
tho driven snow, was tho commanding
figure of ttio trio. Col. Fr! is a veteran
oMho lloxican war and he seryod as
Lioutonant-Colonel of tho 'jnn'aii
I lunel of the 129th Ponn'a., and Colonel
of tho 27th Ponn'a. Kogimont3, during tho
civil war. .Mr. Mudey is an ex-Demo-cratio
Postmastor of Pottsville, and Mr.
Cochran Is a civil engineer with a reputa
tion extending all over tho state and many
old maps of this town boar his signaturo.
The viewers assembled at tho Kendrick
House and wero sworn in by S. G. if.
Hollopetor, Esq, It was then decided, in
conscquonce of the throng assombled, to
havo tho hearing in Ferguson's theatre and
that place was started for at once.
Col. Frick called tho meeting to order
and stated that the object of the visit of his
colloaguos and himself was to Inquire Into
the propriety of a re-division of tho wards
of the city of Shenandoah. After reading
tho order of tho court Col. Frick said that
the viewers were roady to hear statomonls
Air, Hollopetor took the stage' and said,
substantially: "Sometime ago, under tho
Act of 1874, tho requisite number of citi
zens of Shenandoah presented to tho Court
a petition, tho synopsis of which has beon
read by the chairman, in which it was
stated that tho wards of the borough as
thoy now exist aro insufficient for the con
venience ol tho inhabitants thereof. Tho
petition was signed by tho requisito num
ber of citizens and on this authority tho
viowers were appointed by the Court.
"It is submitted by the petitioners that
tho population of the borough is, In round
numbers, ovor 10,000, and it is divided into
five wards, and that tho voting population
principally in the First, Third, Fourth and
Fifth wards Is so large at the presont time,
as not to accommodate tho convenient of
tbe voters; and for that reason this petition
was presented.
"We shall show you that in tho First
ward are assessed taxables amounting to
90S, tho registered voters number 782 and
at tho fall election of 1890 over 448 votes
were cast,
"During the hours between 6 and 7
o'clock, p, ra.( thero aro a great many
voters who aro unablo to cast their votos on
account of not having sufficient time. Tbe
peoplo living hero aro dependant upon
their daily labor for a livelihood and work
all day. They quit at four ojclock and by
the time they get home and got washed
they havo so little time that they are pre
vented from casting their votes. They find
It Impossible to vote In many cases unless
thoy wish to stay away from work. I
know of my own knowledge and even In
the little Second ward, men havo been un
able to get their votoB In.
"In the Second ward the assessed taxa
bles number 437 ; registered voters; 859;
votes cast at last fall election 203.
"Third ward assessed taxables 1,041 ; re
gistered voters, C24 ; votes cast last fall, 470.
"Fourth ward assessed taxablos, 725 : re
gistered voters, 50 ; votes cast last fall, 301.
"Fifth ward assessed taxablos 1,053 ; re
gistered votors, 803 j votes cast last fall, 417.
"We claim, as I have stated before, that
tho citizens of tbo First, Third, Fourth and
Fifth wards cannot be acoommodatod to
day. Wa claim that those wards should ba
divided on such a bssU as may seem juvt,
Thero It to be no gerrymandering. Every
one will have their say and It Is with you,
gontletnon of tbo commission, to say
whether wo shall have a rodlvi3lon of tho
wards and how many wards should bo
established. If you gontlomen should con
cludo to report a ro-division I think vou
would bo safe in making a re-division of
tno second ward, This ward is increasing
each year and, perhaps, It the ward should
bo dividod into two part of It mleht
possibly bo added to ono of tho wards of
tho First; or, if you should think other
wise, thon possibly part of tho Second
might be taken into tho Third.
VThero is another point and that is that
in the borough of Shenandoah wo try to
live up to tbo law as near as nossiblo. Wo
don't count during tho day time, but wait
until after tho last vote has boon polled and
then tho board undortakos to count off and
for that roason, when a large voto Is polled
wo can show to you that it has required un
til, olton, two. throo and four o'clock In
tho morning beforo the returns havo all
been computed.
"For those reasons wo think tho borouch
should bo re-dlvlded and boundary lines
established for niuo wards, at least. It
has boon suggested that nt tho timo of tho
first division of tho town into wards our
population was but 8.000 and It Is over
double that now."
John A. Nash, Esa., the Democratic
lawyer of Pottsvlllo, succeeded Mr. Hollo
poter. lie had boon retainod bv tho Demo-
crats of town to oppose tho petitioners.
Mr. Nash opened his address smilinelv
and at once proceeded to taffy tho com
missioners sovoral Inches thick.
"I am hero to seo that Justice is dono to
all parties," said he and sovoral in tbo
audience of tho same political stripe said
"Hero! Uoroll" Thon tho taffy pourod
out in a monster stroam. "If it becomes
necessary to divide tho town into additional
wards," continued Mr. Nash, "I know it
will bo done with justice to tho voters and
pooplo of tho town. Wo are perfectly
satisfied (and ho smiled) and will rest con
tent with your action."
Then turning toward tho viewers, and
turning on an oxtra flow of taffy, Mr.
JMusu said, "I know from tho charactor of
this board that nothing olso will be done.
lhereforo, I feel content that no gerry
mandering and no political convonienco
will ho subsorvod, as they aro men (Mark
Antony stylo) of too high character and
havo too much at stako to bo made art in
strumont for any such purposo."
It was a Democratic dodge. It was a
heavy dose of taffy against a flood of cold,
stern facts.
Mr. Nash then suggosted that tho town
might bo djvidod into precincts, but tho
viowers said thoy were not dealing with
procincts and their report to tho court
would have to bo for or against a division,
Thon Mr. Nash took another tack and
declared that to mako more wards would
mako tho Borough Council and School
Board too cumbersomo for official action
and that all the work would have to bo
loft to committees.
Mr. Nash then claimed that It would be
inexpedient to divide tho town. That it
would be better to wait until tho new ballot
law good into effect.
A consultation was hold aftnr tlin nrl.
drets by Mr. kash and it was finally con
cluded that two gontlomen from each of
tho llvo wards, a Domocrat and Repub
lican from oach, ba solectod to act as a
committee and' try to agree upon boundary
lines for tho proposed notf wards.
A comparison pf the selections shows
how well the Democrats carriod out tho
Republican committee: William Ken
drick, First ward; W. J. Watkins, Second
ward; S. A. Beddall, Third ward; P. D.
Holtnah, Fourth ward; John Bock, Fifth
Democratic committee: 'Squire J. J,
Monaghan, First ward; F. J. Bronnan,
Second ward; A. J, Gallagher, Fifth ward;
Christ. Schmidt, Fifth ward;:H. J. Mul
doon, Fifth ward,
It will bo observed that the Democrats
had no representatives from the Third or
Fourth wards on thoir committee but had
three representatives from tho Fifth.
While these selections were being made
D. J. Doyle, of the SunJaylA'ews, arose
and demandod that tbo business bo pro
ceeded with. Ho was informed that tho
selection of tho - committees reforrod was
tho shortest wayto a termination of tho
business, And Mr. Doylo sat down.
Tho committees adjournod to Mr. Hoi-
lopeter's office for Joint session and Mr. S.
A. Beddall was made-chairman.
'Squire Monaghan brodiipod a man and
showed how bo thought tho lines should
run. Ono of his suggestions was that the
proposed new First and Second wards
should ba divided by "White and Centre
streets. His suggestions were listened to
Then tho Republicans produced a map.
Thoy got as far as suggesting that the
First and Second wards should bo divided
by the Lehigh Valley railroad when an
oxplosion o wratb occurred,
"What do you take us for?" shouted
ono Democrat.' "Thoy want the earth,"
another shouted. "Whero did you got
that map T" askod a third, while a fourth
Indignantly exclaimed, "Why, we w ro
told that you fellows were not making any
maps." Then ther was aohrusf "It's a
trick," "It's a political scheme,." "Thoy
don't want to give us anything."
Th ' IUh'UUIohu mttp was similar to th'U
of tho Democratic map in many partlcH
lars, but tho Ronublican
division of tho First and Fourth wards
wore looked upon with horror. Tho Re
publicans wanted to drhW linn nn
street and throw all south of that line with
Turkey Run Into tho Ninth ward. Tho
Domocrats. on tho other hand. wnnfnH in
throw all that part of tbo town south of
Uhorry streot and west of West streot into
the Ninth ward with Turltoy Run.
Amid tho unroar tho chairman rnnolmlorl
that tho committoos could not aerco and
they returned to tbo thoatro.
Upon tho return to thn Ihnntrn M
Beddall mado a formal statement to tho
otloct that tho committees had failed to
reach an agrotmcnt. Tho viewpra m.
pressod regret that such was tho caso and
said they would taka all the maps for futuro

As thero were ten Democrats to oach

to seo that tbo schomo was to form nn nr.
ganization nnd havo it adopt tho Demo
cratic map and throw out tho ono submitted
by tho Republicans. But tho motion was
not put nnd tho scheme necossarily failed.
The viewers withdrew from tho theatro
and, accompanied by S. G. M. Hollopoter,
Esq.. T. R. Beddall. Esn.. W. .1. Knltznr.
