There will bo no other observance of the day here, except in tho forenoon, when mass will bo read at St. Ann's church at 9 o'clock. llallot Reform in tlie Legislature. The Keator ballot reform bill has passed second reading in the house, and will pass finally in that body. When it reaches tho senate it is expected it will be violently opposed by Senators Martin and Fllnn, tho bosses of Philadelphia and Pittsburg, as its provisions are too strict to suit these ballot corrupters. Martin lias a snide "reform" bill of his own before the senate, which lie will substitute for tho house measure. The Keator bill provides absolute secrecy in voting. Under tho proposed law no voter shall have a helper unless he is physically incapacitated or unable to read. His helper must first declare under oath, subscribed to, that lie will not attempt to influence the voter, but will give hi in tho help ho desires, and that he will not disclose the contents of the ballot except in legal proceedings. The bill does away with the circle and the name of the candidate shall he printed but once on the ballot for the same office. The bill also reduces the ballot to one-sixth of its present size and enables the voter to avoid the risk of mistake in voting. There is only one way to mark a ballot according to this bill, by putting a mark opposite the name of each candidate, the candidates being in groups, within party names and appellations following thorn. The bill was drawn to remedy tlie defects In the ballot laws of 1891 and 1893, so as to make it conform more nearly to the Australian system. Must Tell What He Knows. _M. J. O'Toolo, associate editor of a Scranton Sunday paper and who has a large acquaintance in this vicinity, has been subpoenaed to appear at Harris burg before the committee that is in vestigatng the charges of bribery in connection with the McCarrel bill. For the last two weeks Mr. O'Tooic has contributed articles to his paper setting forth that Judge Archbald endeavored to Influence Dr. N. C. Mackoy, the member of the legislature from the Third district of Lackawanna county, in favor of McCarrel) bill, usfng a poor board appointment as tho moans to the end. Mr. O'Toolo will bo asknd to furnish the proof of these charges, Engle & Co., one of the oldest estab lished dry goods houses in Hazleton, will retire from business onyAprll l.

Burgess Gallagher stated that lie would turn enough equipments over to the new police officers for their use until such time as he would be able to give them the balance. A report from Chief of the Fire Department William Mincer, to the effect that he had tested the water plugs and found the same in good order, was accepted. President Kline read an address to the council in which lie offered suggestions as to the best ways to go about the various problems which confront coun cil.

Six Year* of Silpnino. Edward J. Cunningham wnh releas ed from San Quentin after serving a sentence of six years for burglary, and with his liberation there, passed from the prison walls one of the strangest characters that ever wore striped garb of the penitentiary. When Cunningham was landed with in the walls of San Quentin prison he turned to the sheriff who hud con ducted him thither and swore u heav ily solemn oath that no word would escape his lips during the perlotfof his incarceration. Cunningham stoqd by his oath through the long, weary years of his sentence, and his tongue never loosened until lie stepped with out the prison walls a free man. Whenever it became necessary for Cunningham to communicate bis needs or wants to others, he did so in writ ing or by motions. After being con fined in the prison a short time be was thought to he insane and was sent to the Ukiah Asylum. Here he was con fined but a short time, for it was soon ascertained he was in his right mind and merely acting in a stuhbron man ner. Word was sent to the prison of ficials and Guard Miller was sent to the asylum to bring the prisoner back. When near Santa Rosa he jumped through a car window, hut was capt ured after a hard chase. After his return he still preserved an inviolable silence .and was put into what is known as crank alley. Here all kinds of influence were brought to hear up on him to cause him to speak, hut without avail. He also refused to have his hair cut, and when released his hair was measured aud was found to be fifty-four inches In* length. When relieved of his prison garb a smile overspread his countenance. Several people spoke to him. but he only grinned. Once outside the prison gate Cunningham made up for lost time. He condemned every one around the prison for his confinement When asked how he managed to control him self and preserve* an unbroken silence for so many years, he angrily replied that he had uo explanation to make. mindful Ignorance. Bobby I say. Miss sister Maud's going to marry your brother Dick; but don t say anything about it, because he doesn't know it himself yet. Dr. William Paul Owen Thornason, of Freeland, registered as a practicing physician on Monday in Prothonotary Dasch's office. He is a graduate of Jef ferson Medical college of Philadelphia. He Is an assistant to Dr. H. M. Neale. Luzetno county's representation in the next Republican state convention will he seven—a loss of four delegates, Mun to tho Kina 11 vote given to Governor Stone. COUNTY SEAT NOTES. Lackawanna county's indebtedness of $70,000 to Luzerne, says the Wilkesbarre Time*, has never been settled. This Ifability grew out of the erection of the former county out of Luzerne. Year after year since then the commissioners of Luzerne have not pressed the claim, and the matter dragged'along until 1805, when the legislature repealed the act of 1878. under which the indebted ness of a new county to the old was pro vided for and the taxables of the new county made liable. The Tiintt ques tions the province of the legislature to pass a law to deprive any men or com munity the right to recover a legal indebtedness. Wllkesbarreans have a special inter est In Major General Otis, now In com mand of the land forces in the Philip pines. It was at Wilkesbarre. in 1877. that General Otis made Ills first greal conquest, capturing the heart of Miss Bowman (a member of one of that city's leading families), who subsequently be came the soldier's bride. General Otis was stationed In the coal legions during the riots of 1877. Active preparations arc under way among Luzerne county P. (). S. of A. camps for the state convention of the order, which will be held in Wilkes barre on August 22. 23 and 24. Nearly 1,000 delegates will be in attendance and over 5,000 members will participate In the parade. The state encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic is to convene at Wilkesbarre on June 7 and 8 and 2,000 delegates arc expected to attend. It is seventeen years since the Pennsylvania veterans met there. REFLECTIONS OF A BACHELOR. Every love has infatuation in it, but every Infatuation hasn't love in it. A woman is never quite so happy as when she can be happy in a sad way. loot's wife probably looked back to make sure she hadn't forgotten to lock the back door. There never was a woman who look ed anything but red-eyed and snuffy when she cried. A woman never trusts a man she doesn't like, but she often likes a man she doesn't trust. You can generally tell about how a girl felt when she got up that morn ing by the way her hair looks. Every girl thinks some man would be surprised if he only knew how she could love him if she only tried. When a man makes up his mind that he has married the wrong woman, the trouble generally is that he is the wrong man. A girl's idea of politics is generally shaped like something to beat eggs with. When a girl is so anxious for a man that she will take up with anything, she is said by the women to be very "susceptible." GREAT THOUGHTS. Hope is the gas in the balloon of ambition.—Schopenhauer. The greatest man is he who chooses the light with invincible resolution. — Channing. Difficulty is a nurse of greatness—a harsh nurse, who rocks her foster chil dren roughly, but rocks them into strength and athletic proportions.— Bryant. A nation may establish a system of free government, but without the spirit of municipal institutions it can not have the spirit of liberty.—De Tocque ville. If you lend a person money it be comes lost for any purposes of your own. When you ask for it back again you find a friend made an enemy by your own kindness.—Plautus. Hatred is the madness of the heart.— Byron. Fidelity is seven-tenths of business success. —Parton. Haste trips its own heels, and fet ters and stops itself.—Seneca. There is an oblique way In reproof which takes off the sharpness of it. — Pope. The mind is its own place, and in it self can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.—Milton. ITEMS OF INTEREST. In Russia there are about 3,000,000 houses. This is nearly half of the en tire number in existence. Oysters are such nervous creatures that a sudden shock, such as a loud thunderclap, will kill a whole boatload. It has been ascertained that cne of the mountains in the moon is 36,006 feet high, while several are upward of 30,000 feet. Barbers In Paris are compelled by law to use only nickel-plated combs, and to wash their hands after attend ing upon any customer. It is stated that nearly two-thirds of the total number of children under 10 years of age in the United Kingdom are insured in one form or another. Bats in the Philippine islands are as big as cats, and with the wings spread measure three feet from tip to tip. A bite from one of them is said to be poisonous. 81.50 a year is all the TKIULXK costs, Gained Freedom and l>lr<l. Barney McCue, who was pardoned and liberated frutn tlio Eastern peni tentiary December 24, after being In carcerated for twenty-three years, died at the home of his son in VVilliamsport on Tuesday night., McCue was con victed of the killing of Edward Deeter in the fall or 1874. and was sentenced to he hanged March, 17, 1875, but the sentence was afterward Commuted to Imprisonment for life. He was pardoned December 24, 1898, and at once went to Williaiusport to visit his old friend, Patrick McEadden, whose tireless efforts went far toward securing his freedom. About a month ago Mr. McEadden died, and on the day ho was hurled McCue was taken ill and steadily grew worse. McCue was 118 years of age. and it was his fondest hope to go back to his native land, Ire land, before he died. Amlitiiig Itorough Accounts. Ho rough Auditors Condy Furoy, Wil liam E. Martin and .lesse A. Alden' began the work of auditing the borough's accounts on Fuesdav evening. A session is held at the ofhoe of ex-Secretary Hockley every evening. 1). J. McCarthy has been present, at eacli session held so far and has filed objections to the approval of many bills. He objects to the borough paying police service bills, burgess fees, several electric light bills, several printing bl|Js, all the expense the borough paid on account of the death of Councilman Butz, several street labor and coal bills, flag-raising bills atrd many others. Nearly one-half of the orders Issued have been objected to, and as this will require an Inspection of each bill of expenso the audit will not bo completed for some time. Knight* of Malta ONtcer*.

The application for a rule to show cause why the petition for a review of the proposed division of the South ward of town should not bo dismissed was dis missed by Judge Halsey on Monday. It Is not likely, however, that the petition for a review will be granted, and the legal light over the division of this ward will likely bo fought on the origi nal report of the commissioners. By order of Judge Ilalsey the case of the commonwealth against Councilman A. Rudewiek has been stricken from tlio argument list. Mr. Rudewiek was charged with illegally holding his seat on council. Township Supervisors Organize. Foster township supervisors, Patrick McGuire and August Horn, organized on Monday evening by electing Clias. Orion Stroll, Esq., of town, and C. E. McHugh, Esq., of Wilkesbarre, as at torneys for the township during the year 1890-00.

This was done oil account of the meagre compensation received the past two years by the treasurers. Firebugs Destroy a School, The people of Ashley are terror stricken over the work of a gang of incendiaries. On Saturday the firebugs touched off valuable property, causing a loss of 820,001). an account of which was given in Monday's Issue, and early Monday morning they lired tbe large public school building.
