There were several good spiecbea.
John J. Schneider, of tin Eleventh
ward, laid: "Many of our people are
opposed to a bridge above Cedar ave

b purely selfish They fear that if
constructed, the effect will bs felt in a
depreciation of their property values
I do not think such will be the case,
although fully aware that much uf the
traffic will be taken from Cedar ave
nue. It was freely remarked that the
construction of the municipal building
ou Wasbinghtoa avenue would have a
similar effect ou l.ackawauua avenue,
but the prophecy has not been fulfilled,
and while Washington avenue may
some day become a business thorough

George Frable, of the Twelfth ward,
said: T have heard much oppisition

"The people err when they suppose
that franchises have been granted over
either of the bridges. Councils are
powerless in the matter for the reason
that th"! approaches to the South Side
bridge and the westerly approach to
Linden street do not as yet belong to
the city. The former is the property
of the Piatt estate and the Iron com

with unlawfully atteiODting to influ

the case of James Jennings against the
Lehigh Vallev Railroad ooniptny, It
is with regard to that case K yiiold s is
charged with trying to influence jurors.
He was tried Ht the llecniuber term for
the offense but the jury disagreed.
Judge Edwards was K-ynolds' attor
ney on the last trial of the uise and
yesterday Major Everett Warran took
his place. Attorneys George S. H im
aud E C Newcoiub also appsared for
the defendant District Attorney
Kelly ably conducts the prosecution.
William Blake was the first witness
called after Mr Kelly had made his
opeuing address to the jury.

After discussing saveral topics Rsy
nolds said he DOtlOSd that witness lisd

if he had heard of the Jennings case
Reynolds then said tint ho did not
think Jeuuiugs hud a good case as it
had beeu shown that he was pigeon
breasted He referred to the testlmouy
of Dr. Kelly for Jeuuiugs at a former
trial in a somewhat slightiug manner.
The conversation turned on Burgesi
Burke of Archbild, who had tmn
drawn us a juror for the sum week as
witness. R-ynolds wanted to know
what kiud of a muu he was aud witness
told him he was a gooj, honest man,
he thought Rsyuolds asked witness
to ascertain from Burke his feelings
with regard to the Jeuuiugs case. Wit
ness said he did not like to do that, but
Reynolds told him it would bj no harm.

Attorney 1. H. Burns, who was one
of the counsel for the LshigU Valley
company iu the Jenuiugs' case, was
sworn and said that Rsyuolds was em

evidence, subpeo 1 1 witursiss and nsjsr
tain if any of the jurors for the week
the case was to bs tried had any rela
tions with Jennings or any person In

P. A. Walker, another juror of the
April term, with whom Reynold
talked about the Jennings case, was
the thirJ witness Hs met Rsyiiohls
twice at Carbomlal and incidentally
that geiillemau spoke about the Jen
nings case. At the first meeting he
said the doctors werd five to one in
favor of the company and at th second
he referred to a pigeon breast he said
Jenning had, and wanted to know
whether wituess would bMieve the tes

Monies Carpenter, of Blakely, en
gineer at the Eddy ('reek mine, wai
sworn. After he had been drawn ns a
juror Reynold's called on him and after
a conversation with regard to the elec
tion of a county superintendent of
schools, the Jennings case (fame up.
Reynolds said that Jennings claimed
that his braast was injured in the Mul
Run accident but that the ovidence
would show that he was not injured
aud that it was a put up job
Reynolds did not tell him anything
that be had before gleaned from tbo
public prints. Witness was of the im
pression that something was said about
bis being a juror but was not sure.
George L. Preston, of this city,
swore tbht be had been drawn ns a
juror he met Roynolds on Washington
avenue one day. Reynolds asked him
if he was the Preston drawn us a juror
for the April term. Witness replied
that be was.
ASKED ABOUT THE JINN HOI CASE.
The defendant asks 1 him if he knew
anything about the Jennings case and
if in liis opinion with the testimony of
such doctors as X. Y. Lset against him
Jennings' case amounted to much
Roynolds also made some remark to
the effect that if the jury hold together
it would be all right. Gn cross exam
ination be ssld he did not knew what
idea Reynolds meant to convey by that
P. A. Philbin said that he was a
juror at the April term of last year.
On the day the Jennings case was
called for trial be was standing in the
corridor talking to John H. Jordan
and Patrick Jordan Reynolds cume

him nnd suid something about the
doctor upon whose testimony Jen ildgl
relied having suddenly recovered from

did not hear the remarks that fol

Reporter John H. Jordan, of the
Scran tou Truth was standing in tho
corridor with Juror Philbin when
Reynolds came along He laid : "I see
Con's doctor got well suddenly. This
is a rotten esse," he continued. Jor

meetings with th different jnrors,
what brought them about and thu con
versations lie had with each. He de
clared that his intentions were entirely
honest and that be did not speak to any
of them with the intention of being
dishonest. In nearly every case the
jurors had themselves In 1 tlw conversa

To the best ol' his recollections ho

that was in the Harrison lIousu.at Car

TIMOTHY BURKS FOR BUR3ESS.
Citizens of Duuuiure Nominate a Vary
The citizsns of Dumuore held a con
vention at tho Od l Fellows' hall last
night and nominated the strongest
ticket that they have ever plaoed in
the liild. The large hall was taxsd to
its utmost capacity, suowiug the great
interest manifest. Many old-tim
Democratic campaigners ware promi
nent figures in the convention, f ap
pearances count for anything, the
ticket will surely be olocted.
The first order of business was the
election of a chairman and a secretary.
John G. McAskie and C. P. Savage
were chosen, tiie former as chair
man aud the latter -as secretary. The
first nouiiuHtioa was for the office of
burgsss. Timothy Burke and George
B Allen were nominated Mr. Allen
declined in Mr Burke's favor and Mr.
Burke was nominated by acclamation.
Martin Gibbons was nominated for
the office of tax collector without op
position. P. D. Manley was nominated for the
borough treasurer and the nominees
for the office of councilmen were
Michael Taylor and Usury Webber.
Two school directors w-re nominated
as follows, John Marshall and Patrick
Michael Ctiuuion, who did such ex
cellent work as street commissioner
before the term of the preseut incum
bent, will agaiu run for the office.
Philip Carroll was nominated for jus
tice of the peace The olfioe of audi
tor will be sought after by Orin Cor
rell, who made such u good run last
tt is conceded even by the Democrats
that this is the strongest ticket they
have over been called upon to tight.
The Republicans have given the psople
just what they promised A ticket de
void of all partisaniui and one that
can be called representative, it was
first oonsidtred advisable to call it the
People's party but owing to tho large
number of votes lost last year flue to
intricacies of the bullot it was decided
to run a Republican ticket. This is
fully unde.'stond by the Independent
Democrats and they will feel no com
punction in voting the ticket under the
name of Republican.

All Classes Of the Community Will

Woelkers Cases Tried Yestt'day.
Constable Joseph Woelkers and his
brother, Special Officer John Woelkers,
who were convicted at the last term of
court of having brutally assaulted and
seriously injured John Schalasny of the
South Side, for wbMi arrest they had
a warrant, were called up for sentence
before Judge Archbald yesterday.
Attorney M. V. Lowry made a plea
for mtrcy ami presented a long petition
from citizens of the Eleventh ward
asking for clemency. There was also a
petition from seven of the jurors who
convicted the men, asking that a light
sentenced be Imposed. In passing sen
tence Judge Archbald administered
tha following rebuke to over-zealous
The petition for clemency in this case is
a strong oue. und is Higued by many well

I thus gone sbruud that a certain class
of poopfe is subject to oppressiou br cur
tain ollicers of the law. Notice lias come
through the courts and through the pub
lic press that officers have used their of
ficial positions to extort money froniothers
who have DOOM over here more recently
than themselves and ure less acquainted
with the manners uud customs uf the peo
ple of this country. When the cuse now
under consideration was tried 1 charged
tbe jury to take as fuvorublua view us pos
sible of the defendants, one of whom was
au officer of the luw uud the uucond of
whom was called to assist iu making the
arrest Indeed 1 wauld not louk with dis
approval ou a verdict of acquittal of both
Yet hero was a mau who was very near
ly killed and for n time it wai doubted
that he could live. It is dillkult to con
viuce the average citizen of th necessity
uf killing a man iu order to urrust him.
Tha jury viewed the matter in this way
aud I think their judgment was right,
though ray charge was favorable to the
defendants. The jury finds that Joseph
Woelkers, tho coustab'e, 1s guilty of
aggravated assault aud buttery aud John
Woelkers f simple asiault and battery.
TUE PETITION RECEIVED.
The punishment for aggravated u-sauit
aud battery involves u uneaul imprison
ment, but I can hardly dispense with
both. But the defendant is an officer uf
the luw, and there is a strong petition here
from friends aud neighbors of Mr.
Woelkers. It is signed by MIDt of the fellow-countrymen
of the injured man, aud
by Father Aust, tho pastor of his church,
and by the prosecutor iu the case. 1 have
laid ail before my colleagues ou the bench
and the sentence 1 am to impoie has met
with their approval.
There is uuuther fact that would tend to
mitigate the sentence. 1 have here u peti

tried the case.aud h letter from Mr. Wood

modified sentence would be satisfactory to

The trouble occurred at Olyphant at

all the tcstimmy was in, Judge El

that any person had been assaulted and
