In Several of the Wnrdo the Public lit Taking Little lute rent In Politico. But Till* Will Seon Change—Some Sharp Content* In Town—Politics In Foster. The present campaign in Freeland borough is being conducted by both polit ical parties considerably different from those of recent years. Every candidate Is either on a "still hunt" for the slip pery voter or else they are all satisfied to allow the citizens to decide the com ing election without bringing any pres sure to bear upon them one way or the other. Outside of the candidates for council, it seems that not an office seeker in town has made a systematic canvass for votes. A few have broached the subject to their neighbors, but the general pub lic has evinced no desire to get excited over political problems this year and most of the candidates are letting mat ters drift. In the next few days, how ever, an awakening In some of the wards will likely take place, consequent ly a roview of the list of applicants for the various offices is not out of place todav. • The candidates for borough auditor aro James Bohlin on the Democratic ticket and William E. Martin on the Republican. Mr. Bohlin's reputation as an upright, honest searcher after the truth will stand well for him 011 election day. He would sift out the mysteries of the borough and school district accounts, if any such exist, and give the results to the taxpayers regardless of whose toes he might tread upon. This is the only bor ough office to be filled. Through a shrewd move of the Repub licans last summer, in having the North ward sliced up into four nice little wards, each entitled to two school directors and two couneilmen, the big South ward, where the Domocrats roll up their majorities, will elect only an assessor and election officers on Tues day. The Democratic candidate for assessor, John Trimble, Sr.. is opposed by Charles Elliott, but there Is no doubt of the result. A light vote will bo polled unless more interest is taken in tho contest. North from Main streot, whoro the Republicans carved out for themselves the above-mentioned four little wards, the outlook is not so alluring for their success as it was some months ago. In fact Republican plans in Freeland bor ough have fallen into a habit of going contrary to the wishes of their creators. The annexation of South Heberton last year was thought to insure perpetual power for the party by several hundred majority, but the old town would have none of it, and unless all signs are mis leading the present ward gerrymander is going to prove a boomerang to its fathers. To begin with, the First ward Is looking more Democratic every day. The Republicans count noses and figure up nice majorities, but this signifies nothing, as their opponents can easily do the same and make a better showing. The Democratic candidate for council man is George Christian, for school director Frank Eberts and for assessor Patrick Dooris. It is a strong combina tion and has smashed the Republican fences on all sides. Their opponents are Harry Keck for council, John H. Tre vaskis for school director and John Miller for assessor. Down in the Second, where Democrats are supposed to be as scarce as the pro verbial hen's teeth, there is consterna tion in tho rank# of the other side. A Republican who does aot intend to cut his ticket is not considered up-to-date in this ward. To be in the swim a Repub lican must carry a long, keen knife and slash his party's candidates as though the life of tho nation depended upon their defeat. South Heberton voters last February learned bow to vote split tickets and they liked the result so well that they will try it again on Tuesday. The Democrats aro not making tho slighost objection to this, but are urging on tho war with raro diplomacy. Tho Demo cratic candidates are: For council, Owen Fritzingor and Georgo C. Schrei ner; school directors, H. G. Doppo aud Michael Murrin; assessor, Wilson Walp. The Republicans have nominat ed A. Rudewick and Daniel Kline for council, W. D. Kline and Daniel O. Kromes for school directors and Thomas Evans for assessor. The Third ward's vote in November LIBOR WINTER, Restaurant and Oyster Saloon. No. 13 Front Street, Freeland.

FINEST LIQUOR, BEER, PORTER, ALE, CIGARS AND TEM PERANCE BRINKS. FREELAND, PA., THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 189 S. last sent shivers down the spines of ob servant Republicans. Here was a tidy little poll, with less than 100 voters, returning a tie vote for state treasurer! Where the Democrat# catne from was a mystery. The Democratic leaders of the district know, however, and promise that every man of them, and a largo reserve co*ps, will answer roll-call again on the 15th. The Democrats in whose hands the care of the ward has been placed promise success to every one of the following candidates: Council. Frank McLaughlin and Paul Kemchin czky; school director, William J. Brogan; assessor, Henry Mincer. The opposition has named Mathias Schwabc and W. J. Butz for council; James Van Horn for school director, and Richard Drumtra for assessor. In the Fourth an exciting contest is expected. Roth sides have some old campaigners on the ticket, and there the forces will be lined up in regular battle array. The ward is Republican, of course, like the others, but it refuses to stay Republican 011 election day, and its inclination to be contrary to its party this year is causing unrest among the followers of lianna. Republicans fear tbe result in the Fourth and not without good reasons. The condition of affairs here is somewhat similar to that exist ing in the Second, except that the vote is closer. They caunot lose a vote with out endangering their chances, and the the facts show that several will be lost for tbe whole tickot and many other ballots will go in badly ripped from top to bottom. The ignoring of the majori ty element of the party In this ward is beginning to react, and it causes no surprise to seo the Republican candi dates each pulling out for himself. On the other hand, the Democrats of the Fourth never give the election offi cers much trouble in counting the bal lots. They vote them straight, with an "X" on top, and this system has result ed In such victories in the past that they can safely count on a sweep at the com ing fray. The candidates are: Demo cratic, for council, Albert Novak; school directors, Patrick McOeehan and Peter Gallagher; assessor, John F. Gallagher; Republican, for council, R. F. DePierro; school directors, J. 11. Laubaeh and VV. J. Everett; assessor, Stephen Drasher. A remarkable coincident is that Asses sor Gallagher and Mr. Drasher were op ponents for the same office three years ago, with the borough as their field. POLITICS IN FOSTER. Three Ticket* In the Field and Each Expect* to Win on Tuesday. The decision of Judge Dennett on Sat urday cleared the political sky in Foster t.ownsfiip and made it plain to the poli ticians that a straight vote on the Demo cratic side will give that party an over whelming victory. With three tickets #ln the field, one Democratic and two Republican, there should not be much doubt as to the result. The township in spring elections is nearly on a bal ance with the Republicans united, and with this party split into two factions the Deniocrats ought to have a walk over tliis year. There are rumors of Democratic deals with both of the op posing factions, but this cannot be proven and is probably untrue, as no Democratic office-seeker, present or prospective, is likely to be so foolish as to entertain trade propositions from either of the Republican wings. For the first time in many years the Prohibitionists havo failed to place a ticket in the field. Their column will be occupied by the Citizens* party, which is tbe title chosen by the inde pendent Republicans. The candidates are all hopeful of winning. Their names, and the offices they aspire to, are as follows: SCHOOL DIRECTORS. Republican—Walter Richards, Wood side; John H. Boyle, Highland. Democratic —William o'Donneli,llazlo Brook; John Kringe, Highland. Citizens'—Jerry Woodrlng, Sandy Run; Julius Lesser, Upper Lehigh. SUPERVISORS. Republican—Evan X. Davis, Sandy Run; Samuel Herring, Upper Lehigh. Democratic —Patrick McGuire, Upper Lehigh; Frank McHugh, Eckley. Citizens' —Joseph Meirs, East Foster; John D. Davis, Eckley. ASSESSOR.

Citizens' —August Baker, Hazlc Brook. CLERK. Republican—Thomas Parry, Upper Lehigh. Democratic —John Carlis, Highland. Citizens' —Mike Kotura, Eckley. JUSTICE OF THE PEACE. Democratic—Michael Campbell, East Foster. Citizens' —John S. Miller. Highland. AUDITORS. Republican—John C. Stroll, Drifton; E. W. Tuttlo, Woodside. Democratic—Joseph Gallagher, Sandy Run. Citizens'—John C. Stroh. Drlfton. Additional locals 011 the fourth page. DEPUTIES' TRIAL. l'ros.outlnn la still Piling Up Evidence Agalurtt the Murderer*. The trial of Sheriff Martin and his deputies is progressing very slowly, but every minute helps to fasten upon the accused an indelible stain of blood, which will, regardless of what judge and jury may do, remain as a brand upon the characters of the cowardly assassins during the balance of their lives. When court opened on Monday morn ing Judge Woodward read a mild rebuke to the lawyers who took part in the disgraceful affair on Saturday. Ho also attacked such representatives of the press as dare to tell tho truth of tills trial, and especially those who assist their readers to understand the facts by cartooning the leading feat ures. Judge Woodward was on Sunday aud Monday ciLici-ol severely by the press of the entire country for tolerat ing dis rder and blackguardism, and smarting under these strictures he threatened to bar the doors against ail men whose Reports are not up to his standard of accuracy. The New York Journal . Philadelphia Press and Wilkes barre Newsdealer are the only daily papers which publish the whole truth of the trial, and it is supposed that it was j these reporters he meant in his attack. The judge also objected to the state ment that the deputies are in court witli loaded revolvers in their pockets. The reporters have offered to prove to the ' judge's satisfaction that this is true, but : ho has not accepted their offer. Silas E Jones, of West Hazleton, the first witness on Monday, saw tho shoot-! ing. He saw a wounded striker who j was trying to escape followed by Deputy j .John Bornheiser, who shoved him about and kicked him. Conversations ! which Jones heard between deputies and spectators were about to be related when tho defense objected. An argu ment of nearly two hours followed and the usual docision, in favor of the defonse, was rendered by the judge. George Yeager, a Pole, picked out those deputies: Schuyler Ridgway. Arlo Pardee, John Zeirdt, George Fritzingor, Frank Clark, Ed. Turnback, Thomas Hall, William Raught, John Cook and Melun Morris. Tho witness was struck twice on the back with a rifle by A. P. Piatt at Lattimer. Yeager also picked out Chief Hampton, of the coal and iron force, who was not pres ent. He saw two deputies chase strik ers and shoot at them after the slaughter. They wore Dehl, who has disappeared, and an Eckley constable, supposed to be Raught. Here the bail was renewed for all the deputies by tho City Trust, Safe and Deposit and Surety Company, of Phila delphia. The bail in each case is 86.000, or 8428,000 in all. Clerk Thomas Hal!, of the Valley ho tel, Hazleton, swore that on the Sunday after the shooting Deputy John Turner said: "I shot nine aud killed five of them.*' Chris Brehm, of Cranberry, was at West Hazleton when the strikers reach ed there. He had a conversation with Doputy Bornheiser, who said: "Every one of those strikers ought to be shot." Brehm answered: "They have as good a right to strike as anybody and I wouldn't stop them." The deputy then said: "You're a coward or you would get a gun and go out with us to shoot them." Before that Brehm met Deputy Alonzo Dodson, who said: "We ought to get so much a head for shooting down those strikers. I'd do it for a cent a head and make money at it." Joseph Costello, a very important wit ness to prove malice on the part of the deputies, was the next witness called. A lengthy argument over the admission of his evidence was decided in the depu ties' favor 011 Tuesday morning. Judge Woodward gave notice that lie had received a threatening letter. He told the author to spare himself further trouble, as ho could not be frightened. Edward Jones, West Hazleton's chief of police; John Lynch, of Wost Hazle ton, and Herman Boetticher, of Hazle ton, were the principal witnesses on Tuesday. The testimony consisted al most wholly of accounts of the brutality of the deputies at Wost Hazleton and Lattimer. Were it not for the promi nence and the reputations of the men who go on the stand, tho evidence could scarcely be believed. The doings of the bands of thugs who were parading this region during September, as related in court, have aroused public feeling to a high degree. Yesterday's session was devoid of sen sations. A. P. Piatt was pointed out by one of the witnesses as the man who tore the American flag from its pole in West Hazleton. While another witness was searching the court room for John Cook, to Identify him, Attorney Garman stated that Cook was not in court. William Raught, a deputy whose seat is is getting uncomfortably iiot, cried out: "What business have you to point out anybody?" Garman said: "I have business and I'll soon point you out if you don't shut up." Since the proof of the premeditated murders is coming out so strong, the deputies are losing their courage and one-half of the gang are now hanging their heads with shaute. Borough Council Meeting. The members of the borough council met on Monday evening with Messrs. Meehan, Zemany, Rutter, Davis and Muliiearn present. Attorney John M. C'arr read a letter from Attorney James E. Dwyer, of Hazleton, calling the atten tion of council to the fact that Mrs. Catherine Duffy, of Upper Lehigh, was injured by falling on a slippery side walk last December on Ridge street. It was decided to appoint a committee of four, together with the borough solici tor, to investigate the matter. The committee which had the gas ordinance in hand for amendment made no report, and the matter was laid over. The following persons were exonerated from dog taxes, they having sworn that they did not own any dogs: S. Simon, I), Gross, August Kellert, and James J. Sweeney. Street Commissioner Boylo reported an expenditure of $f>C.G5 on streets for January. The report was approved and ordered paid. Burgess Gallagher's report showed the receipts to bo $13.50; fees and commis sions, $0.15; due treasurer, $4.35. The following amounts were returned for police service: Patrick McLaughlin, $7; James P. McNeils, $11.35; Stanley Novak, $0; Bernard McFadden, $5; M. E. Fritzinger, $4; John Murrin, $2; Patrick Welsh, $2; John Molik $1.25; total, $41.50. The following bills were read and ordered paid: Electric Light Company, $241.06; Hugh Bovlo, janitor, $21.75; Hugh Boyle, cleaning hose house, $".; James Welsh, cleaning hoso house, $0; Joseph Latz, coal, sl6; John Davis, coal, SS; James J. Ward, salary as health offi cer, S3O; E. W. Turnbach estate, repairs on tools, $1.70; John Molik, burying animals, $4. School Board Meeting. A special meeting of the borough school board was held last evening with Messrs. McCarthy, Sweeaey, Timony and Schaub present. The secretary re ported having received a communica tion from the Board of Health, which gave the board two days to abate a nuisance existing at the Daniel Coxe school, which was caused by allowing the privy vault to remain open. The building purchased by Mr. Timony has been removed. It was decided that Mr. Timony procure the necessary planks and have the vault covered for the present to prevent an accident, and when fine weather sets in arrangements will be made to have it cleaned up. The bill of Mrs. Donlin, laid over at the last meeting, was ordored paid. The amount was 82. The secretary reported that he and the president had been talking several times about the advisability of giving pea coal a trial, with a view of reducing the enormous coal bills, and that they had ordered a load for the Daniel Coxe •chool, where it was being burned satis factorily. Those present thought it a very good suggestion. The secretary stated that the board would save $1.50 on every load. Peculiar Occupation of a Beading Man. The man with the strangest occupation in Reading is Frederick H. Byrne. His profession is that of biting off dogs' tails and he derives quite an income from the strange, not to say unpleasant, business. When a fox terrier is quite young its tail is cut off, leaving a small stump, prob ably two inches long. As a general rule, the tail is cut witli a knife, but, it is said, when amputation is made in this way the wound requiries a long time to lieal. It was recently discovered that if the dog's tail is trimmed with the teeth it heels nicely in a short time and looks much better. Byrne has been in this business for some time, and as there are numerous terriers owned in Reading, he has had many patrons. He performs the operation in a jiffy. He judges about how far the tail should be cut off, takes it iu his mouth and when his teeth have reached the point of amputation, he cleses his heavy jaws and the work is done. A Suspect Lodged In Jail. Chief of Police McLaughlin received notice on Tuosday of a robbery com mitted on Sunday last at Slatedale, Pa., where a house was entered by three tramps and slls in cash and consider able clothing taken. While on his way to work yesterday he saw a man whose appearanco tallied with one of the descriptions in the notice. A mes senger was sent to Officers Welsh and Fritzinger, who went to Drifton and ar rested the suspect. When the chief's train was passing Jeddo the other two mon were seen walking along the rail road, but they have not yet been cap tured. The prisoner bus been lodged in the lockup and the authorities at Slatedale notified. Patent* Granted. Reported by C. A. Snow Co., Wash ington, D. C. F. P.
