In the Second ward a ticket has already been named, and its legality has been questioned. The reason assigned for choosing late dates is to give the party leaders a chance to straighten out contests in the First and Fourth wards, where there are too many applicants for certain of fices. The men in control are afraid to whip the not-wanted candidates in the ward caucuses, and hope that by hold ing back the time of making the tickets they can induce the warring factions to compromise and harmonize. Special Council Meeting. A special meeting of council was held Monday evening with all members, pres ent, except Messrs. Kline and Schwabe. The object of the meeting was to ratify the action of the coinmitte which dis posed of the Front street property to John Campbell, of South Ridge street. A resolution to this effect passed three readings. Mr. Campbell was present, and in view of the rumors that a member of council threatens to take out an injunc tion to prevent the consumation of the sale, on the ground that a higher price was offered for the property, stated his willingness to relinquish all claims if council returns his monoy. President Iveck stated that no higher amount than Mr. Campbell paid had been offered for the buildings and lot and that the buyer's right would be fully protected by the borough. A verbal opiuion from Solicitor Stroh to the same effect was also presented.

The offi cials of Pardee & Co. claim the men were suspended in order to reduce ex penses at the colliery and that their connection with the union had nothing to do with laying them off.

Janssen last night went to a masquerade ball, but before going his wife complained there was nothing in the house to eat.

''Grip robbed me of my sleep and I was nearly crazy with "neuralgia and headache. Dr. Miles' Pain Pills and Nervine cured me."—Mrs. Pearl Bush, Holland, Mich.

The insurance is SIIO,OOO. The llamos originated at the top of the breaker, presumably by a piece of cotton waste taking fire from tho lamp of a breaker boy. The fire departments of Pittston and West Pittston were called to the scene, and attempted to save the washery, but the fierce flames from the breaker drove the fire fighters back. This season there is a large death rate among children from croup and lung troubles. Prompt action will save the little ones from these terrible diseases.
