'The Republican delegates of this county met at Wilkesbarro on Tuesday and nominated the following ticket: Judge, Lyman H. Bennett, of Wilkes barro. Sheriff, James Martin, of Plains. Recorder, Philip Richards, of Nanti coke. Controller, Joseph D. Lloyd, of Wyom ing. Coroner, Dr. Frank L. McKce, of Plymouth. County surveyor, Edward If. Post, of Wilkesbarro. As will he noticed in the. above tin 1 candidates all come from the county seat or nearby towns. The other por tions of Luzerne were not considered in making up the ticket, and the result is that considerable, dissatisfaction has al ready made its appearance. This, with the factional rpiarrel that has rent the party, gives the Democrats greater hope than ever to carry on to victory every nominee on their ticket. The judicial convention met in the morning and after arranging the pre liminary work for the day the candidate for judge was named. The aspirants and the vote received by each was as follows: L. 11. Bennett, of Wilkesbarre, 147; (leorge Ferris, of Pittston, 94; Geo. 11. Troutman, of Hazleton, 38, and Gen. PL S. Osborne, of Wilkesbarre, 0. Mr. Bennett was declared the nominee. The county convention was called to order at 2.30 o'clock. The reports of the various committees were received by Chairman I. P. Hand, of Wilkesbarre, who was elected to that position. The resolutions adopted renew the loy alty of Luzerne Republicans to Gover nor Hastings, eulogize Judge Rice and promise to help him in receiving a nomi nation for superior court judge; they ask for a non-partisan judiciary, and conclude with the statement that Democratic ascendancy has proven a failure and its downfall is impatiently longed for.

The Luzerne Republican district con ventions were held on Monday, and eight delegates were elected to the state convention who favor Governor Hast ings, while one delegate favorable to Senator Quay was successful. The fea ture of the day was the election of a Quay delegate in the fifth district, where the friends of tin; governor thought they were sure to win, while in this district a Hastings man was successful hy a ma jority of one in the convention. The contest in this district could not be more exciting. The Hastings dele gates were taken by Daniel Coxe in a special I). S. & 8. train to Hazleton, whore headquarters were opened in coal and iron police rooms until tin; con vention was held. The first test of strength was between .1. B. Laubach, of Freeland, and William F. Adams, of Beaver Brook, for chair man. Adams won by a vote of 22 to 19. This gave the,'Quayites control of the convention. 11. P. Kuntz, of Hazleton, and .1. C. Stroll, of Drifton, wore chosen as secretaries. A secret ballot was de cided upon in voting for state delegate. The first vote resulted: Powell, 20; Lloyd, 20; Chairman Adams, 1. The second gave Lloyd 21 and Powell 20. The disorder at times was so great that tin; police had to be called upon to quell the noise, and as soon as the vote was announced the convention broke up in confusion. Charges and counter-charges of boodle were made by the interested parties, and there seems to be no question but tiiat money was lavished freely. The first district convention was held at Wilkesbarro. The delegates are W. M. Weaver and A. L. Williams. They are for Hastings. The second district elected its dele gates at West Pittston, Alexander Mc- Dougall and John D. Woodworth, the Hastings men. defeating the Quay men, Dr. M. B. Hughes and Lewis Jones, by one vote out of a total of 59. The third district convention met at Kingston. Chris. Wren and Jones Ed wards were Hastings delegates, and How ard Armstrong and William Oldlield stood for Quay. After considerable wrangling a vote was called for, and it resulted as follows: Wren, 233*; Ed wards, 243*'; Armstrong, 22; Oldlield, 19. The fifth district convention was held at East Pittston. The Hastings men made a poor showing. Their candidate. Charles B. Smith, received only 123* votes. John M. Jones, tin; Quay candi date,, received 293*. The sixth district delegates met at Ashley and elected Arthur E. Detro, the Hastings candidate, over John B. Graham, by a vote of 39 to 24. PERSONALITIES.
