Messrs. Kantner and Iteher, llonntrr,
Have, n I'erfect Understanding,
1'utUvlUo, Dec. 15. There are turners
within rumors lu political (irclm here, In
reference to the appointment to be made by
the now board of County Commissioners.
These rumors uie without foundation. It fa
true Messrs. Kantner and Keber, the Mepab
llean members of the board, were In onn
ference several hours on Wednesday after
noon unci havo reached a perfect understand
Ing to organise tho board on a Bcptibllcati
basis, but they have reached no final ooii
cluslou as to the appointment.
It win rumored that John I,. Ilaseler, of
Shenandoah, had been decided upon as
warden at the jail, but the only foundation
for this was that Mr. Hassler's name was
among others suggested for the place. There
has been no appointment made and the only
certainly Is that John P. Zetbey will be re
tained as chief olerk, Charles A SnydVr will
a chosen solicitor, and that most of those
holding positions In the Commissioners' office
will bo retained. There will be several
changes at the jail.
Messrs. Kantucr and Reber will meet again,
probibly to-moorow, when the appointments
may be announced.

Minnie Williams and Viola Williams, and Ida
West, who wereronvictcd of leading a gay
life In town a few months ago, were dis
charged from prison yesterday. Ida Wist
was permitted to go her way, hut the other
two were turned over to Constable Laugbran,
of Hailototi, who took them to the Wilkes-
harm prison to answer a charge pending there
gainst them. Before locating in town they
had been committed to tho Luzerne prison
by Mayor Meyers, of Uazleton, and having
been billed out by Attorney C. M. Iloman,
they afterwards jumped tho bond piece and
left Mr. Roman In tho lurch. When their
triat took place at Pottsvllle two members of
the Luzerne bar wore present and recog
nized them under their aliases. As a result
Mr. Iloman captured his birds and yesterday
evening delivered them up to the Wilkes-
barre authorities and thus saved his bond
from forfeiture. Tho soiled doves were any

The local record for fire alarms was broken
between eleven o'clock last night and seven
o'clock this morning. Three alarms were
sounded and the fire companies responded
promptly to 'all of them. Fortunately the
Are in neither oase was of a serious nature.
Two alarms were sounded for one' property.
This was a hou-e in Bobbins' row, on East
Centre street It Is occupied by the family
of Jacob Wolf. The first call was sent oat
from box No. 10, at 11:00 o'clock. The Are
apparatus was not called into play,' the occu

This lime an mspeeliou was made and It was
found that the soot In a ohlmney was on fire.
The chemioal bose was put In use and the
chimney was effectively flooded.
Tho third alarm was souuded at 0:10 this
mottling from box No, 13, corner of Oak and
Gilbert streets Again the fire companies ap
peared on the sceno and located the cause of
trouble In a house on South Gilbert street
occupied by a Polish family and owned by
J. Gaughan. In this case also soot In a
chimney was found sn fire and the chemical
apparatus extinguished it.
This trio of alarms will doubtless result In
a crusade on soot filled and defective chim

Tho victim worked In the first lift. It Is

president of the United States Mone
tary League, left here yeetenlny for St
Loula, where he will hold a confer
ence with the governor of several
stale friendly to the free coinage of
silver relative to a stilt which Is about
to be begun by the itate of Colorado
for the purpose of securing a decision
by the I'nited States supreme court as
to the legality of the demonltlsatlon of
sliver The general assembly of the
state passed a Joint resolution author
Ulng the governor tu take stein to
bring this question before Hie supreme
court. After consultation with promi
nent public men of the state Governor
Thomas settled upon a course of ac
tion. The first step was to authorise
President Itucker. under the great seal
of the state, to confer with other gov
ernors and raise the funds necessary
to bring a case before the supreme
court of the United States.
The rppues from governors of those
states recognizing that silver should
lie on an equality with gold as a cir
culating medium of value have been
most satisfactory, promising assist
ance, and If posslbleactiveco-operatlon.
Especially In Texas has the reception
of the Idea been cordial, and it Is pos
sible Mr. Kurker will go to that state
and meet the governor and state of
ficials before proceeding to Washing
ton. The suit against the government of
the United States will be begun by an
action in Denver. The United States
Monetary League will give the state
treasurer of Colorado, as a present, a
solid sliver brick of the purest metal, of
100 ounces, and representing $100, at
par ratio. The treasurer will then for
mally presont the brick to the state.
The state will send It to the United
States mint at Washington with the
demand that It be coined Into 100 sil
"This demand, of course," says Mr.
Itucker, "will be refused. Upon the
refusal suit will be entered In the Uni
ted States supreme court, for we havo
a right under the constitution to de
mand that the bullion be coined. The
question will be rained as to where the
constitution lands us, and the suit
brought, In the name of the state of
Colorado, to secure more rapid action
than otherwise would be given It."

chancellor said that it wa3 proved that

and that permanent guards were main
tained to keep men away from the,

coercion, and he grants an Injunction
against those who formed part of tho
crowds, but refused an Injunction
against Hayes, who did not advise any
violence. The chancellor also refused
an injunction against the Glass fllow-
