At present rush work in the line of the hundred and one articles used about the breakers of the vicinity is being turned out. while the brick works at Pond Creek, the new brewery and other buildings in town require the attention of the dozen and a half employes in manufacturing articles for their use.

Second Ward Politics. There li a movement on foot among tha Republican voters in the Second ward to obey the call for a caucus issued by their borough chairman and to nomi nate another ticket instead of the one chosen last week. The indignation aroused by turning down School Direc tors Kline and Krommes by tho people who had control of the meeting on Sat urday evening is being felt In the ward, and the sentiment that the work of these directors entitles them to renoml natlon is spreading among their con stituents. Some of the men nominated for offi ces last week are steadfast in the claim that they were legally selected, and they refuse to sanction another caucus. It is certain that the meeting called by the borough chairman will bo largely attended by the ward voters, and that, it is claimed, moans a ticket different from the one now in the field.
