PROSPECT OF A BEEF FAMINE.
The Supply of the Western Dressed
Article Is Running Very Low

Three cars of meat were shipped Sat-

Omaha and St. Louis for Scranton
wholesale dealtrs, butunlesss tbe strike
is settled aud the cars reHch here by
Monday bcrantoniaus will find consid
erable dltllcnlty lu supplying their
tnblra with fresh beef.
From all the facts obtainable it is a
reasonable conclusion to prediot that
next week tbe succulent prime rib
roast will be conspicuous by its absence
aud that the erstwhile epicure will
starve to death or else eat aged spring
clnck'.m, old cow or crow.
Tbe titty dressed cnt'le which were
in the cold storages early this week
ars now lu the refrigerators of the
various retailors, and this supply, to
gether with the few beeves secured
from the nearby country district", is
all that has prevented a complete beef
famine. This stock will bs exhausted
before Monday, after which tho only
available supply will be the cows, un
fattened steers and young bulls of the
farmers, none of which will cut up into
very savory morselx.
lue larger retailers have not raised
their prices, but the smaller dealers
have added from -i to 2 cents per
pound. It is probable that next week
the big shops will ask the same ad
vance, or else be compelled to olter
customers a tough and unsavory qual
Ity of beef.
several butchers who were out into
the country yesterday found that the
farmers are aware of the scarcity of
the western supply and want a high
price for their good stock, At this
season of the year prime native beef is
Private advices from tbe west to the
cold storages contaiued the informs
tion that there was no propped of
shipping any stock ttlis week. The
wholesalers were farther advised to
bold any stock for bigh prices. Tbe
instructions came too late, as all the
western beef in tbe city bad been sold
and none has arrived since Sunday.
It cannot be learned that the strike
has materially a 11' acted the price or
supply of grain, produce, etc., except
California fruit, none of which has
been received here.
The wholesalers assured a TlUBUNE
reporter that as soon as tbe ombargo is
raised, scranton will Ret meat as
quickly as New York, Philadelphia,
hi on ton aud other eastern cities.
Several retailers, however, expressed
the opinion that no live stock was
coming into Chicago aud when the
strike is settled it wll take a week or
ten days to secure tbe cattle, and that
two or three days more will ensue be
fore the dressed product can be deliv
erd in the eastern markets.

Candidate for the Republican District Attorney Nomination.
ing to herald tbe announcement as
coming from a man who is high in the
counsels of bis party, but who has
never asked political favors.
Snub a one is Attorney John a. Jones,
of this city, who at the connty nomi
nating convention of the Republican
party will probably be selected as tbe
candidate for district attorney. Mr.
Jones is well educated and has had a
remarkable success as a legal practl-
tionor. flis advice has repeatedly been
sought by men prominently identified
with the Republican party aud these
ytars of service very naturally lead up
John R Jones was corn May 2i, 18o0,
at Olyphant, and after a commou
school education at his birthplace he
completed academic studies at the Key
stone Academy, Factoryville, and Wy
oming bemiuary, Kingston. Mr. Jones
began his law study at Harvard. Sep
tember 28, 1870, and graduated with
the degree of LL. B, three years later.
In the meanwhile and after be bad
been but two years a student of tbe fa
mous university at Cambridge,' on
March 12, 1873, Mr. Jones was admit
ted to practice his chossu profession at
Middlesex, Mass. This Massachusetts
bar. by the way, is oue of the most fa
mous in the United States, and has giv
en to this nation some of the most
noted jurists and legal authorities
known to history.
Alter his graduation Mr. Jones lost
no time in practising bis chosen pro
fession near the scenes of his boyhood.
He became, associated with thn cilice
of Attorney Alexander Farnham at
Wilkes-Barro iu September, 1870. hav
ing during June been admitted to
practice in all the Luzerne county
courts. However, Mr. Jones legal
talents bectme best known in Lacka
wanna conut nftvr he had entered tho
law ofllce of Judge R W. Arcbbutd,
in Scranton, Ooiohcr 8, 1880. He was
admitted to the Lackawauna bar tho
same day. He remained with Judge
Archbnld until that gentleiuun was
elected to the bench in 18S1.
IS TUB lllOHIilt COURTS.
Todny Mr. Jones is a member of
the Supreme court of Pennsylvania,
the United States Circuit court, the
Pennsylvania Western District court
and finally the great supreme court of
the Uuited States at me nations capi
tal. It seems proper that at this point the
eulj-ct of this sketch will be renim-
bert-d as tho son 0: tne late Jviwarn
Jones, of Olyphaut, one of Lacka
wanna's pioneers who died two years
ago, respected and esteemed by all who
had ever known him. The name of
Edward Jones aocoiupnit?d its owner
to tbe grave ns a synonom of honesty,
character and uuswerving fidelity.

nomination is in n measure typical of

The candidacy of Mr. Jones being
tbe effect of n suceeaa'ul career, it may
not be out of pluce to mention one par
ticular caseconductediby him which; at
tractud professional attention through
out tbe state and which may be men
tioned as one of tbe ouaus of Mr.
Jones' prominence in the legal world.
Allusion is made to tbe famous trial of
Angustina Nolli who was indicted for
murder mid tried for hia 11 f a dur
ing the week commencing Oct. 10.1893.
In conducting the defense, Mr. Jones
demonstrated his astuteness as a tao
tician, magnetii-m as au orator aud his
ability as a lawyer.
The public is familiar with the gen
eral history of the case which elicited
such great attention, The defense
took desperate cbauces, but through
the skill and ability of Mr. Jones tbe
jury was convinced to bring in a ver
dict of murder in the second degree.
It was tbe popular opinion of lawyers
present at the trial that a verdict of
murder in the first degree was war
ranted by tbe crime.
Mr. Jones occupied the six and one-
half hours between 11 o'clock in tbe
morning and 5. 30 iu the afternoon, ex
cptiug tin hour for dinner, iu plead
ing for the prisoner's life and
in asking tbe conrt to charge the
jury according to fifty-three points of
law arising from the case. It was a
remarkable exhibition of superior
knowledge of loading homicide decis
siots Mr. Jones cited Romun law the
briefs of which were prepared by such
well known authorities s Professor
James Bradley Thayer, LL. D., pro
fessor of criminal law at Harvard, and
Professor Albert S. Wneeler, profoasor
of Roman law at Yale.
Judge Gnuster's charge to the jarv
will go dowu in the legal history of
the common wealth ns Tone of the most
able charges in its history.
In tbe defense of Paul Hydn. who
was indicted for mnrder iu 1880, Mr.
Jones was also associated. His wise
counsel and legal knowledge remain in
tne msrory or tne case.
Alter the foregoiug history of Mr.
Jones, incomplete in ni'iny respects.yet
giving as fully as possible In limited
space a pen picture of the probably next
nepuDiicsn candidate ror district attor
ney after such n pen picture it teems
not umiss to mention what he has done
in the political field and why his num
erous friends consider him tha most
likely candidate for the office. Mr.
Jones has been identified with the Re
public in purty since bis residence in
the county, lis has been a delegate to
many conventions and he has nearly
always made the nominating speech.
Mr. Jones nominated R. W. Arch
bald for Jndge iu 1881 Joseph A.
Scranton for congress in 1833 and Hon.
J. B. Van Bergeu for couuty treasurer
on the same day. He was secretary of
tbe 1884 convention and did assiduous
and excellent service as a member of
Republican couuty committee the same
y-.ar. Michael Gilroy at the Fourth
district Reputdican convention held in
Carbondale several years ago was also
nominated by Mr. Joues.
EVIDENCE OF POPL'LAP.ITY.
Aii evidence of Mr. Jones' magnetism
and stalwartuess camn out at the con'
veution which nomiuated .John T,
Howe for jury commissioner. With
out previous cunvnsi. but in an effective
speech, Mr. Howe's name was presented
bv Mr. Jones and carried through by
storm. In fact, every candidate nomi
dated by him bus b: on elected.
The state convention which nomi
nated M. S. Quay for treasurer in 1835,
made Mr. Jones a metnbsr of the state
committee. Ho was a delegate also to
the state convention of June 2(1, 1S30,
