lHaX Investigation of Dimmer's Jurors
Blows a Strong Breath.
HAZLETT ESTATE IS ESCHEAT
" The trlml o. Mt suit of Dr. W. L. Penney
against William Murdoch, Q. P. Perkins,
E. B. Todd nd S. P. Anderson for $20,000
for false arrest and imprisonment proceeded
yesterday before Judpe Stowe.
The plaintiff showed by Alderman Cassidy
that he was arrested on an information made
before the Alderman against Colville et 3l,
To this Judge Stowe remarked: "They had
no more right to arrest Dr. Penney under
that information than they had to arrest
jne. "We have been trying to teach some
people for a long time how to conduct cases,
but it seems th'r will never learn until
some of these days they will find themselves
in a nice fix."
The plaintiff closed his case and the de
fense, in opening, claimed that the informa
tion was made upon what seemed to be
probable cause, and if it was upon such
belief there could be no recovery against the
defendants. Attorney Bobb pointed out
that if conclusive proof of jruilt were re
quired before the arrest of offenders were
permitted, in a vast number of instances
justice would be pitifully defrauded of her
dues and the criminal statutes would be
come practical mockeries.
Detective Fred Kochendorfer was sworn
and testified to his trip along Grant street
with Sir. Murdoch, when the latter pointed
out to him the house 2Co. 315 as the place
where he was robbed. Samuel Anderson
testified to making the arrest, and denied
that ha heard any conversation between Mr.
Perkins and Dr. Penney about '-fixing the
lira. Lena Quip, of 80 Washington street, was
sworn and cave some testimony that is new in
iRTcrv narMenlax. She said that, dnrinc the
'afternoon of the day on which the robbery oc
curred, she saw a wagon stop in front of 315
Grant street. A small table and a box were
Eat into the wagon and it was driven away,
tie lived next door at that time and wondered
if Dr. Penney was moving. That eveninesbe
spoke to Mr. Bamett about the matter; She
testified that be replied:
"Hush, Mrs. Gulp; don't tell anyone about
this; I'll have it all fixed up in the grand jury
room, and then whack up with yon."
Mr. William Murdoch, chief defendant was
then called. He said he was 78 years of age,
and that be lived in the Twenty-second ward.
Ho told the story of his case over again in the
same droll manner in which be has told it sev
eral times before. The cool regardless manner
in which be spoke of ?10,000 of which he had
been robbed, provoked considerable humor
amonr tba ocennants of the court room.
Jndce Stowe, tho court attendant and all the
lawyers and spectators held their sides with
laughter at the amus!?;, child-like, credulous
manner with which the old gentleman de
scribed bow he must have struck terror to the
bunko hearts by threatening to send for bis
lawyers unless the rogues gave him the $10,000
and the $5,000 additional for which be bad
played the bicger boodle. He was still on tho
stand when court adjourned.
It is expected the case will be finished by
THOSE JURORS DRAKE.
An Officer Swears That Fonr of DImmey'g

James Piatt and wife were taken before
Judge Collier yesterday and sworn for the par
pose of examination on the alleged conduct of
one of the jurors in the Dunmy murder trial, in
banding out a card, bearing a note to one of
the court officers. District Attorney Porter
asked Mr. Piatt if he could identify tho officer
to whom the card had been banded. Piatt
pointed out Officer Frank O'Brien and said that
jnrorDnnlevyhad handed the card to him.
O'Brien in turn handed the card to Piatt. It
was Intended for some one of Dnnlevy's family,
and bore these words:
"William, I am on the jury and cannot get
.Mrs. Piatt was sworn, and testified that she
was present when Officer O'Brien handed the
card to her husband.
Further testimony was then taken before the
Commissioner in the matter of the application
for a new trial. Officer George Hoerr, one of
the officers who had charge of the jury while
the case was being tried, was called. He said
that on the morning before the charge was
made fonr of the jurors bad ordered whisky at
breakfast at the Central Hotel. He knew of
no others having any intoxicants to drink dur
ing the trial. These only bad a small drink
apiece, and be did not noticti that any of them
were affected by it. Officer Hoerr knew noth
ing about the card being handed to Officer
O'Brien. He admitted on cross-examination
that the jurors could have been served whisky
in cups without his knowledge.
Officer Frank O'Brien, the other officer, was
sworn. He was with the jury all the time dur
ing the trial, except when they slept, and knew
-othing about them having whisky. Officer
"Brlensaidbehad never neard of the card
ctil after the present investigation .bad com
jenced. He denied having received the card
om Juror Dunlevy, and says it is a case of
Istaken identity with Mr. Piatt.
The case was adjourned until this morning at
J o'clock, when the jurors will be examined as
o the effects of the whisky which they drank.

Mrs. Mary McD. Hazlett. The estate Is a
Valuable one, and has been the cause of much
litigation. It consists of two farms In West

With this letter The Dispatch's can
vass of counties on the Constitutional
amendment is completed. Our special
commissioner has carried his investigation
into every county of Pennsylvania except
those of Philadelphia and Allegheny. He
concludes his series of letters to-day with
the three counties of Bucks, Montgomery
and Delaware, and the extreme northern
county of McKean, which had been over
looked until now. Of these four, Mont
gomery will give an overwhelming majority
against prohibition; Bucks is In a doubtful
position with the odds favoring the liquor
interests; Delaware may probably add a
small majority to the temperance ranis, and
McKean will be a camp for the Prohi

Nokeistown, February 27. Of the five
'counties in Pennsylvania which gave the
largest majorities against local option in
1873, Montgomery was one. And there
seems to be every indication now that she will
be one of the five next June to give the
hardest kicks at the Constitutional amend
ment. It is true that the Prohibitionists are
doing some brave work, but their efforts ara
directed toward reducing the majority
against them, for they have no hope of win-J
nlng the whole county to their side. If or
ristown is a beehive of industry, and it was
here where Lees & Co. were recently
charged with importing foreign labor. The
woolen and cotton manufacturing interests
are extremely large, but, on the whole, they
are operated by domestic laborers. In other
parts of the county iron manufactories fur
nish a rougher class of workmen, the ma
jority of whom are expected to vote against
Representative Taggart, of Montgomery,
told me that the county would surely give a
majority of from 4,000 to 5,000 against pro
hibition. There are many of the Pennsyl
vania Germans in the agricultural region,
and they are opposed to the law.
A BATTLE GROUND.
Besides that the county lies between Phil
adelphia and 'Berks county, both of which
are expected to do tremendous battle for
liquor. That they would have an influence
on Montgomery with the important line of
railroad extending clear through its terri
tory, is altogether natural to suppose. And
as Montgomery's majority against local
option 15 years ago was 4,206, Mr. Taggart
thinks he has ample grounds for his present
prediction. On the other hand, the temper
ance workers contradict the gentleman, and
aver that the majority may be kept down to
about 1,500 or 1,800. The whole county has
a population of 120,000, which means a very
considerable increase since the last census,
and since the previous vote on the license
There seems to be a decided change of
sentiment in the county of Bucks, and it is
for the abolition of the liquor traffic. But
it is doubtful whether it has gained suf
ficiently to win the day there -in June.
When local option was voted upon this
county gave 3,285 for license. I was sur
nrised when one of her principal poli
ticians told me that this big majority will
be found to have melted into insignificance.
He explained that the northern' section of
the county Is populated bv the old Pennsyl
vania Dutch, and the southern half by the
Quakers. It would be naturally supposed
that the Quakers would offset the influence
of the Dutch in this contest, but with the
part the Quakers are going to take they will
also have the sympathy and aid of a large
percentage of the Germans teo.
THE LUTHERAN VOTE.
The Lutherans appear to be heart and
soul in the movement. Hev. Mr. Melchoir,
of Bucks, is preaching and speaking in
favor of the amendment. He is one of the
leaders of the Lutherans, and it cannot be
denied that that denomination, in this
county, at least, is doing a powerful work,
for the cause. On the other hand the
Menonites are stubbornly opposed to it in
Bucks. It will, therefore, be seen that
peculiar causes are operating in this county.
The largest towns there are Doylestown and
In Delaware county is one large town
which will have mnch to do with the
election next summer. It is Chester with a
population of close upon 20,000. The other
important centers of population in little
Delaware are Media, Slid die town and
Clifton. While there may be a majority in
these places against the amendment the
probabilities are that the Quaker contingent
in the country districts will offset it.
Senator Cooper recently said that he be
lieved the county, which is his home, would
give from 500 to 1,000 majority for the issue.
This opinion is indorsed by J. M. Sogers,
Chairman of the Republican County Com
mittee, although the Chairman of the Dem
ocratic County Committee, J. L. Garrett, is
reported to have said that he believed Dela
ware's majority would be that much the
other way. He did not think the rural vote
of the Quakers would be strong enough to
counterbalance the cUy vote of Chester.
Chester is a manufacturing seat.
WITH THE' NOETHEEN TIEB.
In writing up the situation along the
northern tier The Dispatch almost over
looked McKean county. Since then I have
learned that there does not seem to be much
doubt about which way that county will
vote. There is only one element of doubt,
and that is the large increase in population
in the last 15 years. When the license ques-

tioa was voted upon under the local option
law the total vote of McKean county was
only about 1,600. Now it is fully 11.000.
Bradford bas since then become one of the
important cities ot the State. It Is general
ly conceded that the city will not favor the
amendment. But the balance of the county
probably will, and in some quarters I hear
the estimate made that the whole county
will give somewhere in the neighborhood of
1,500 majority for the cause. The Prohi-.
bitionists argue that the increase in popula
tion is made up of oil well drillers and
lumbermen. They say tbatthe men in the
lumber camps are of a floating disposition,
and that very few of them have a vote; and
that, as these articles have already shown,
the great bulk of the men at the petroleum
rigs are steady-going and ready, to give,
their vote and influence for prohibition.

STORM ANOCAPE '
HAVE "GOT TO GO"
Fickle weather. '
On Washington's Birthday we noticed quite a numberof ea
in the parade minus Overcoats. It was a balmy spring day, lalTof
warmth and sunshine. The next day there was universal shiverjsg
Another cold spell set fn, and now, every man who Owns an Over
coat, instead of hanging it in his wardrobe and deluding himseli'
with the idea that the winter is over, is only too glad to wear it.
These cold spells, which may be looked for every now and then
during' the latter part of February and the stormy month of March,
will afford us our last chance to get rid of the balance of our' Overcoats-
Sharp blasts from the North or West and sharp reduction!
in our prices form a combination against which no man without ar
Overcoat dare rebel.
We suit' our action to our word!
The very best Schnabel Elysian Fur Beaver Overcoat thous
ands of them sold for $30 now $20. You'll be fortunate to ge
one. Fine Elysian Fur Beaver Overcoats; warm and comfortable
We'll not carry a single one into next season. The price has bee'
25. Now it's $15. They'll go at the price. Heavy and mediun
weight" Melton and Chinchilla Overcoats, as good as they are fast
ionable; former price was gi8. They'll go now at $12. Remember
these are no sham reductions; not figures printed for effect Neve

tional, highly colored balderdash of certain Clothiers. Clothiers'
What a misnomer, if applied to those dealers! Mountebanks is "the

A rare offer!
In preparing for the past season's stock we determined to hav
the finest, nobbiest goods that money could purchase. We bough
. the best and choicest things known to the trade and sold larg
quantities. We overdid and went beyond our mark, ordering tc
many, and to-day we have several hundred of the finest Suits evt
made. The prices we've sold more than a thousand $9 an
$ 1 0. We've determined to close out all on hand, and at the pru
they'll go. $6 for these finest and prettiest Children's Suits.
