The Ward Tickets Selected
Candidates for the Council,
School Board and Other
The Republicans of the borough held
their ward caucuses last evening and
selected candidates for the several of
fices to be filled next month. Three
delegates wore also chosen in each ward
to attend the Republican borough con
vention, which will be held this evening
in tho Municipal building.
Not in years has there been as much
interest taken in the party affairs as

in the uptown wards, where a nomina
tion on the ticket is usually equivalent
to an olection.
The past services of some of the
present members of council and the
school board were not satisfactory, it
appears, and from the outgoing office
holders only a few wore again selected
In the First ward Councilman Keck
was not a candidate, but Director Tre
vaskis was. lie failed to secure a re
nomination by a margin of fourteen
votes in tho caucus, Adam Sachs captur
ing the honors.
The Second ward turned down Council
man Rudewick, who was four votes
short. Councilman Kline was renomi
nated. and Director Kline was placed on
the ticket again. Director Krommes was
not a candidate. The work of the con
vention held on the 19th inst. was
ignored by the voters and altnost a com
plete new ticket was chosen.
In tho Third ward Councilman Brash
er was named again. Councilman
Sellwabe was not an aspirant, and his
place was given to Emory Shelly.
Director Van Horn was renominated.
Councilman DePierro and Director
Everitt were renominated in the Fourth
.vard. Director Brown withdrew from
•he race and S. J. Neußurger was

Many Changes in the Laws.
The convention of the United Mine
Workers yesterday took radical action
regarding the power of the national of
ficers to declare strikes. The constitu
tion was amended to allow the national
.executive board, of which the national
officers were made members, to declare
any strike or suspension. The district
presidents and secretaries shall be first
consulted. The proposition to increase
the salaries was defeated, and they will
remain at the present figures: Presi
dent, $1,500 per annum; vice president,
81,200; secretary-treasurer, $1,300.
The new action governing those who
are eligible to membership in local
unions provides that "locals shall be
composed of miners, mine laborers and
other workmen, skilled and unskilled,
working in and about the mines, except
mine managers and top bosses."
The convention took action very Im
portant to the anthracite region. It in
creased the executive board from eight
members, adding two representatives
from the anthracito fields. One of the
new men will be Timothy Hayes, of
Dickson City, Lackawanna county, a
former resident of Drifton. Hereafter
the Mine Workers' Journal will be print
ed entirely in the English language.

of the proposed new county shall be set
forth, under oath by six electors of the
proposed county, the state officers shall
inspect the application and shall ap
point three disinterested commissioners.
These commissioners, within sixty days,
shall report all the facts, with a map of
the new county. This shall be followed
by the governor's proclamation of a
special election within the boundaries
of said county.
The governor shall appoint the new
county officers, who shall serve until the
next general election, and the new
county commissioners shall designate
the county seat for the time being.
They are also empowered to issue bonds
to the sum of $30,000 for expenses.
The property and taxable inhabitants
of the new county shall continue liable
