The four spans will be entirely completed in a Short time with the exception of the flooring Aud foot walks. That Meads viewing the situation from present indications that the riveters will get through with their portion of the work on the spans that Are up before work can be resumed on the three remaining spans.

Bedea monday evening the democrats of the City of Wilkes Barre met in convention Aud placed in nomination Candi dates for the several offices Tobe voted for at the coming february election. The ticket is a Strong one and the Choice of the convention for mayor was Fred o. Kirkendall a son in Law of George Gearhart of this pity and Well known Here. Or. Kirkendall was nominated by attorney Paul Bedford who said in part Quot i am reminded at this time of an incident related by judge Woodward at a former democratic convention when a nomination by the democratic party was equivalent to an election. Judge Woodward or or. Woodward As he was lieu was chairman of this particular convention. The incident happened about thirty years ago and i was thereby prevented from being a witness to it. It seems that the convention was a rather tar Bulent one Aud there were Many contests for All the offices. Matters became More and More exciting As the proceedings went on. When nominations for the office of sheriff were called several delegates jumped to the floor each one More excited and anxious than the rest to be recognized by the Ohair. But one of the delegates waved above his head in a very pointed manner from the standpoint of the chairman a revolver. A a the chairman hastily Rose to his feet and demanded that order be restored Aud Ann Onnord in hie longest tones that he would recognize the Delegate with the inn. The favored Delegate took the floor and placed in nomination the name of William Penn Kirkendall. Needless to say he was nominated by the convention and elected by an overwhelming majority. His brother Ira Kirkendall was the first mayor of Wilkes Barre when it was incorporated a pity. Aud this Lormer executive has a son who is not far away from us tonight. A Fred o. Kirkendall is a Man Yong in years but not so Yonng As to be without wide experience Aud fitness for the position of mayor. He is a citizen of spotless integrity who has always taken a patriotic interest in the welfare of his native cite and a political candidate whose strength at the polls has been forcibly demonstrated. He is a Man whom All democrats and men of other political creeds who wish to see a executive who will give the City a clean honest Aud respectable government can support. Quot he is a business Man of the very widest experience and one who stands upon a Good platform. He was born and reared in the pity and has the Power of looking into matters i Ipoh would help wonderfully in bringing the City to hie front rank. His name i present for consideration. A every time the name of Kirkendall was mentioned by the speaker it was met with Hearty Lian clapping Aud stamping of feet and at the conclusion it looked As if the proverbial bedlam had broken Loose. When order was finally restored a Delegate moved that the nominations close which was done. The Secretary was then instructed to Oast the ballot and or. Kirkendall was at Onoe planed on the ticket by an unanimous vote. The nominee was then called to the front and he responded by thanking the delegates for the Honor they had thrust upon him. He Sai 1 that the past few Days he had been ill and was in Soch a shape that nothing but a democratic convention could have brought him out. He concluded by again thanking the Quartetti at y. H. A.
