CANDIDATE DUPED. Republican Nominee for Justice of the I'eaoe Named Too Late. In the county commisioners' office at Wllkesbarre, yesterday afternoon, the certificate of nomination of Charles Bocz kowski, the Republican nominee for justice of the peace, was presented, and objection? against Its acceptance were immediately filed by Hugh A. Shovlin. Esq . the Democratic candidate The objections set forth the fact that the office of justice is a county oflico, for which a certificate of nomination inn?l be filed twenty-eight days before elec tion. The commissioners, after consult ing their attorney, sustained the objec tions, and refused to accept the certifi cate, consequently Mr. Boczkowski'? name will not appear In the Republican cofhinn. An effort made to have tho name of tho candidate printed on the ballot by filing nomination papers disclosed the fact that the latter must be filed twenty one days before election. Yesterday was also too late to take this step and as a result no name can be printed on the ballot in opposition to Squire Shovlin. When the now? reached town last evening it naturally created consider able displeasure among Mr. Boczkow ski's friends and among those Republi cans who were not aware of the law bearing on the subject. Other aspirants for the Republican nomination for justice had been given a "tip" on tho subject and would not per mit their names to be presented at the convention. Tho friends of Mr. Bocz kowski, however, wera not made ac quainted with the facts, and now they feel that they have have been hood winked. The party did not contain much har mony before yesterday, and this latest blow, the holding of a convention too late to place the candidate on the ticket, is not calculated to make the Republi can? very enthusiastic. What causes the deepest chagrin is the fact that the blow was delivered from within the party ranks. Drury Files His Reply. Senator Drury, of Luzerne, has filed with the senate his answer to the pro test of S. S. Staples against tho seating of Mr. Drury. He denies as false the charge that ho received 81,500. and gave a pledge in writing wherein he agreed, if elected, not to vote for Mat thow Stanley Quay for United Slates senator, or to participate in the caucus of the Republican party to select a can didate for United States senator, or to support any person whom Matthew Stanley Quay might favor. II says he never received said sum of $1,500, or any other sum of money, or anything of value, for any such purpose. Fire Engine Tested. The fire engine brought here on Tuesday by the LaFrance Company, of Elmira, N. Y., to be given a trial by the borough, was tested yesterday after noon. Connection was made with the plug at Centro and Walnut streets and a stream was thrown over the ball on the Municipal building. At Centro and Front streets the stream easily went over the Oswald and DeFierro buildings. The hose was also taken to the Hill, with the engine standing on Centre street, and a strong stream was thrown. Later the engine was taken on the Hill, where a satisfactory test was gain given. Sleighing Party. A jolly sleighing party left town yes terday for Laurytown, where the day was pleasantly spent. The party was composed of Mrs. Hugh O'Donnell, Mrs. Ollie Mason, Mrs. J. W. Miller, Mrs. George Fllby, Mrs. W. J. Sands, Mrs. John McGeady, Mrs. A. B. Smith, Mrs. Ollie Koch, Mrs. Irwin Smith and Mrs. Kugler. Thomas Smith was the driver of the sleigh and he intimates that he has some good jokes to tell at the expense of the party. Killed at Easton. Edmund Smith, aged 43 year?, was struck by a train Tuesday evening in the Lehigh Valley yards at Easton, where he was employed as a laborer. The train took off both of his legs and the unfortunate man died at 3 o'clock next morning In the hospital. Mr. Smith leaves a wife and six children. He was a son of Andrew Smith, of Ceraenton, and was a former resident of Sandy Run. "When the grip left me tny nerves and heart were badly affected; but I be gan taking Dr. Miles' Nervine and Heart Cure and was soon all right,"—Wua. Rb'ertcbv, Euti Waff, WW. MINERS ADJOURN. The National Convention at Indianapolis Makes Many Change* in Laws, The twelfth annual convention of the I United Mine Workers of America ended at Indianapolis on Wednesday evening. The absorption of the various auxiliary trades and the centralization of power in the hands of the national officers ac complished by tills convention makes the union stronger than ever. Important action was taken providing that when any member is suspended or discharged by an operator it shall be the duty of the mine committee to im mediately investigate the case, and, if the discharged employe is found blame less. it shall be immediately reported to the sub-district and district presidents. If they find the report as stated they hall immediately order the reinstate ment of the discharged employe. This places in the hands of these officers the power to order a suspension of work at any time their judgment may dictate. After April I next local monthly dues shall not be loss than 25 cents a mem ber, together with all assessments levied by the national organization. Should a member allow himself to become three months in arrears he shall no longer be considered a member and shall not be reinstated until he shall pay a sum equal to three months' dues and one half the established initiation fee. The convention refused to go into the election of the two additional members of the executive board from the anthra cite district. It is expected that Presi dent Mitchell, who has been empowered to (ill all vacancies, will name the two anthracite members of the board. In the future the pass word shall be sent out quarterly instead of semi annually, as is now the case. This was ordered because many ex-members who have the pass word are able to gain ad mission into locals outside the districts where they formerly belonged. ANTHRACITE MATTERS. The convention refused to indorse any radical scale demands for the anthra cite region, believing the wiser policy will be to bend evory energy toward a peaceful settlement on April 1, in order to give the anthracite miners an oppor tunity to recover the earnings they lost during the late strike. As the anthracite situation now stands the national officials, by and with the consent of the national executive board, are empowered to endeavor to arrange a joint conference in Hazleton on March 12, with the anthracite operators. In the event the operators refuse to meet the miners, the executive board will then outline a policy. If they are unable to reach a satisfac tory basis, and a strike seems inevitable, then the district presidents at the head of the twenty sub-bodies composing the United Mine Workers will be called into conference, and upon their vote will de pend the policy of peace or war in the anthracite region. The policy of the bituminous leaders is plainly for a con servative policy in the anthracite and all other regions. Three days prior to the date set for the proposed joint conference at Hazle ton, the anthracite miners will hold a convention at that place. MITCHELI/s POLICY. In reply to a letter to President John' Mitchell, concerning threatened trouble in the anthracite Hold next spring, Rev. F. S. Phillips, of Ilazleton, received the following letter: 4 *l fully realize the necessity of our organization using its great strength on conservative, reasonable lines, and so far as I am able to Influence its actions a conciliatory, conservative policy will be pursued. I look forward with hope that the anthracite operators and miners will accept more humane and progres sive methods of adjusting their differ ences than we were compelled to pursue last fall, and I am sure that the miners' organization will not invite another in dustrial contest if it can be honorably avoided." Alleged Murderers Go Free. The nine-year-old son of Michael De- Cosma. who told the district attorney that he had seen two men murder Modena near Drifton, last April, now seems unable to repeat the story and the two prisoners, Tony Lombardo and Jack Spalone, were discharged on Wed nesday. The lad's father, who was ac cessed of being an accessory after the fact, was also released. At a preliminary hearing it was charg ed that the boy's mother and others had threatened to beat him if he told any ono, and the authorities last July took him away from his mother and have since kept him in jail.
