The names of all the nominees in the borough appear in the TRIBUNE today, and a glance over the selections will show that the Democrats have made strong tickets. The Republicans con cede that the Democrats will have their annual walk-over in the South ward, re-electing Councilman Meehan and sending Mr. McCole, a Democrat, to the school board to succeed the retiring Democrat, Director Sweeney. In the First ward Messrs. McNelis and Fisher stand an even chance to win. The dissensions in the party, to which can attributed the defeat of tlie nominees 1 last spring, have disappeared, and vic tory seems more than probable. In the Third ward ex-Councilman Buclunan is pitted against Councilman Smith, and when the closeness of the vote and the make-up of the ward are considered it appears that the former will get a ma jority of the votes. For tlio first time in many years Ilazle township Democrats are presenting a solid front to their opponents. Xheir ranks are unbroken and unbreakable. On the other hand, the Republicans are warring among themselves witli unabat ed vigor, and the dissatisfaction oc casioned by the nominations made by the convention is increasing daily. Cor poration rule, bossism of the rankest brand and "fake'' reform on the school board have disgusted the decent Re publicans of the township and they pro pose to end the political careers of the present leaders by overwhelmingly defeating their ticket ou the 21st inst. Both parties have agreed that their local rules need revision. The Demo crats will endeavor to give each district a more equitable representation than is had under present rules. The Republi cans are working upon the Crawford county system of nominating borough candidates, and this radical departure from the methods used here so long has caused many in the party to believe that a scheme is under way to advance some body's interests next year. The Republicans of the South ward nominated Thomas Elliott for council man and Henry Luhman for constable, but the nominations were not satisfac tory to the nominees and thoy were withdrawn, David I\ Jones and Edward Jenkins taking their places on the ticket. Foster township Democratic candi dates are working to make their majori ties as large as possible. If but one fourth the number of votes promised them by dissatisfied Republicans are re ceived, the whole ticket will win with ease. Objections to the certificate of nomi nation of John Rosenstock. Republican candidate for poor auditor, have been filed at Mauch Chunk. The nomination was not made according to party rules. James Thomas, of Oakdalo, has been placed on tlie Republican ticket in Ilazle township for treasurer to fill tho vacancy caused by the resignation of Christ Haswell. Councilman Msebao and Smith have been winuminutcd by thvir reaper 11 vn parlies. SCHOOL BOARD. Large Amount of It.inline Itusineee at Last Kveiling', Meeting. The borough school board met last evening in regular monthly session. The secretary read the financial state ment as published in the TKIF.UNK on January art. It was ordered placed on the minutes. Treasurer Schaub report ed having received from Tax Collector Kline 8515.1(1 and a balance on hand of 85.030.50 Tlie contract for weather strips and a storm-door on tlie Ridge street building was awarded to James GriUUhs for $35. It was decided to close the night school taught by G. Vanauker and transfer the pupils to Mr. Zimmerman. The building committee was instructed to have leaking valves in the Ridge street, building attended. A communication rrom the Water Company, turning meters over to the care of tlie board, was read and the secretary Instructed to notify janitor to care for the same. The west South Hcberton school was ordered to be closed on election day. Communications from the state de partment and county commissioners in regard to error iu the state appropria tion were received. The attorney was authorized to take such legal steps as necessary to procure the balance of the state money duo. The secretary was instructed to send a bill to tho county commissioners for 815 for rent of school building for elec tion purposes. Tho secretary was ordered to arrange a price-list of supplies usod by the board for their guidance in future purchases. It was decided to get prices on an extra grate for the Washington street building and purchase one. The report of Principal Hanlon was read, showing a total of Till pupils at tending school, together with the aver age attendance in each school since the opening. He also requested the board to purchase some necessary books. The matter was referred to the supply com mittee with Instructions to look up the wliereahouts of books used in night school. The secretary stated that a taxpayer asked him If he was responsible for the good condition of books given his child ren when a teacher had torn the an swers out of an arithmetic. It was re ferred to the committee on books and supplies for investigation. Tlie following bills were ordered paid: W. J. Eckert, supplies, 81; Mrs. Donliii. cleaning. $1; John W. Davis, hauling. $0.35; J. P. Gorman, Hazleton, supplies, 81.08; Pvogrett, publishing, $1.65; TRI BUNE, publishing, 81.65; I!. F. Shcl hamer. hauling, 5Uc: M. Schwable, coal, sl3; William Williamson, supplies, $33.76; Scott A Ashman, labor and sup plies, $48.35; S. 11. Vanborn, salt, 3l)c. Total, 137.53. Official Coal Statement. The complete statement of anthracite coal production in 1898 does not show important changes as compared with tlie previous year. Tho total output was 41,899,751 tons, as compared with 41,637,8(10 tons tlie year before. 43,177 483 tons iu 1806 and 40,511,477 tons In 1895. These figures show pretty clearly the reason for the somewhat disappoint ing statements of business that have been made by several of the companies. There was some little variation from the allotted percentages, as the follow ing table shows, which gives the total production by companies for the year, the percentage mined by eacli interest and the percentage allotted: Production. Per ct. Quota. Reading 8,219,814 19.02 20.50 Lehigh Valley .. .6,885,577 10.43 15.65 I). L. &VV 5,795,540 13.83 13.35 Penn aR.

Jersey Central, Delaware and Hudson and the two Erie companies mined less than their quotas, while the Lehigh Valley, Lackawanna, Pennsylvania Coal, I). S. & S., Ontario and Western and Pennsylvania Railroad mined more. Authony Keilly Killed. While at work at Milnesville stripping on Monday, Anthony Reilly, a well known resident of Hazleton, was struck by pieces of rock from a blast which he had just fired.

Mr. Rlelly had a large acquaintance in tlie Lehigh region, having taken an active part in labor movements and Demo cratic polities for many years past.

Ou Tuesday President E. B. Sturgess, of the New York, Wyoming and Western Railroad Company, the corporate name of the new road, said positively that there was no idea of abandoning the project. U*e Printed Stationery. Every business man should use print-j ed stationery, for more reasons than "no. Especially is this true slnco the postofiice department proposes that post masters shall open all letters on which no postage has been placed to discover the name of the writer. Parties who do not care to have the secret of their cor respondence thus violated can obviato this by using envelopes with their ad dress or business card printed thereon. Miners' Wnaes Are Going; I.ooer. The committee of the Schuylkill Coal Exchange on Monday fixed the rate of wages to he paid the miners in the Schuylkill region for the last half of January and the first half of February at 8 per cent below the $3.50 basis. This is tlie lowest rate of wagos paid anthracite miners for years. The alleg ed overstocked condition of the coal market is responsible for the low rate of wages. Organising . Local Ilrauoll. L. E.
