Proposal for It Comtruotion Have
Bn IuvluJ.
Bids for the construction of tbe new
boulevard to Elmliurst will be re
ceived all next week. They may ba
addressed to M.ijor C. C. Mattes, of
the Lackawanna Iron aud Coal com
pany's engineering department, where
the plans and specification may be
seen. Work on the boulevard will be
gin as soon ns practicable and will be
prosecuted with expedition.
Tbe boulevard proper will be at Ar
thur avenue and Mulberry street, nod
a high bridge over Nay Aug fulls will
exhibit this beautiful body of water to
the traveler Crossing over the tunnel,
tbe road will cross the Erie tracks on
an overhead bridge. Klmhurst will ba
reached by easy stages, tlie maximum
grade being 3 per oent. Tbe road will
terminate at tbe residenc of tlhief En
gineer i loin v Webrum, at Elmhuret.
The road will vary iu width from
eighteen to twenty lour feet, and must
be constructed in tirst-clags style, with
a top dressing of red shale. Tbe grade
in either direction will be to slight that
a horse can trot the eutire distauoe
with,, ill . 1 i tVi . 1 1 1 1 v
The especial feature of tho new
will be the direct approach from the
city proper, the absence of dangerous
railroad tracks uiid the entrancing
sonic beauties of the territory through
which it passes. The fact Unit the
road is to be built at this time, wheu
work is so scarce, is another feature to
recommend it.

Battin Co.' ad, this pagel''
Joseph Gsrjuuae, of Priceburg, wa
tried neforu Judge Gunster yesterday
uu u charge of having improper rela
tion with Miss Amelia Progoloaky
Whu was a servant iu the boaidlug
house wbicfc Gerjunas conducted. At
torneys Joseph O'Brlan and C. Coui
ugys defended the accused and t-x-
W. H. Stanton assisted the
listrict attorney as private couusol for
the prosecution.
Mis Progtttosky says she came to
this country Inst March and iu June
was employed assisting Mrs. Gerjunas
at the boarding house. Ono day in
June Mrs. I i rjiinas told the Hervaut to
take her little buy up to the room occu
pied by heiself ami husband. Ger
juuaa was iu the room aud when wit
ness entered be closed the door mid
compelled her to submit to him.
A few nights afterward Progaiosky
slept on the tl jor ot the room occupied
by Gerjunas aud his wifo, and again he
wronged her. Some time latur she
left the employ of tho Gerjunas, und in
July went to visit them iu company
with another young woman.
THBOWN'o a well.
Gerjunas was digulilg u Weil iu tho
yard mid she went to watuh him work.
Shu says the well was about twelve feet
deep, and after she had been etaiiding
on the eJge tor a few minutes he pulled
her down into the well aud there had
intercourse with her.
Gerjunas denied the charges made
against him, aud his wife weut ou the
stand and said that ou the day of tile
episode iu tho well she was standing
ou the stoop of her house where she
could see the well Nothing of the
kind described by Miss Progaiosky oc
curred there. The young woman who
was Miss Progolasky's companion says
she wont to the well with her. Mits
Progolosky began throwing sand on
Gerjunas and he playfully threw her
into the well. She saw nothing im
proper. Constable William Keeso swore that
bo arrested Gerjunas uu the warrant
sworn out by Miss Progolosky, and at
the request of Joseph Fcudriuk and the
promise of $1.50 ha agreed to handcuff
Gorjuuas alter his arrest.
Keese undo the arrest, handcuffed
Gerjunas and received tht 11.00 fat 10
dointc hy Fendrick. This was done
for the purpose of humiliating tbe ac
cused. In commenting on the action
of thia constable, Jadge Gunster said
in charging the jury:
He came ou tho staud and testified
that ho made this arrest; that he was a
constable and that be made a contract for
$1.50 to put the hundcutis ou the accused.
Why this man seems to bain blissful ig
uoruuee that if his own testimony is true
he ought to be arrested, indicted, con
victed. sentenced and removed from oltlco'r
It's about time that kind of business was
stopped iu this couuty. We have protested
in this court room term after tern against
such conduct ns that, and if wo learn of
any more constables doing busiuess of that
kind we propose to place a heavy hand on
them. Uf what value is the oath of a con
st.iblo Drho would sell his office for a bribe?
At 8 o'clock th- cue was given to the
jury, but a verdict was not reported
wheu court adjourned.
