TIIE SCK ANTON TBIBUXE--TUESDAY MOUSING, NOVEMBER 13, 1894.
IS AT LARGE
Boschlno, Who Killed Another Italian
Sunday, Probably In t;he Mountains.
DETECTIVES WITHOUT A CLUE
Soaroh for tho Missing Assassin Begun
Early Yesterday-Witnesses of tho
Shooting Profess Ignorance of Kng
llsh and Will Say Nothing.
Joe Boschlno, the Italian who mur
dered his fellow countryman, Francisco
Combort, on Bunker Hill, Dunmore,
Sunday evening, Is still at large.
County Detective Shea started on a
hunt for the missing man early yester
day morning, but it la probable that
he will not be arrested for at least sev
The body of the murdered Combort
remained during the day In Letch
worth's undertaking: establishment,
where an autopsy was performed by
Coroner Kelley, assisted by Dr. J. R.
Murphy, In the presence of Jurymen
Patrick Clary, O. B. Biglin, W. L. Pur
cell, Anthony Reagan and K. 13. Scott.
It was found thnt only one 'bullet en
tered Comborfs body. The ball glanced
from the chest bone to the left, passed
through, tne heart and lodged In the
pleural cavity of the left lung. A num
ber of witnesses were examined merely
to identify the remains. The Inquest
will be held tomorrow evening In the
arbitration room at the court house.
Eye Witnesses Are Silent.
But little Information of the killing
can be obtained through Rlcco Sllvannl
and Tony Embrl, the two witnesses
confined In the Dunmore borough lock
up. - They were too drunk when arrest
ed to converse even in their native
tongue, and when questioned yester
day professed Ignorance of the Kng-
listi language. Still, enough was
gleaned from them' and others to slight
ly change the brutal details of the
crime as presented in The Tribune.
The new facts, however, do not ma
terially change the general story of the
murder. The additional information Is
only that two women of questionable
character were with the Italians as
they. quarreled on the wire bridge while
going from Dunmore to their homes on
Bunker Hill-, and that In the scuffle one
of the party, presumably Boschlno, at
tempted to use a razor.
Nothing has been discovered to
change the theory that Boschlno lay In
ambush for his victim behind a clump
of laurel bushes and murdered Combort
In the presence of the two Italians In
arrest. Two Bhots were fired, one of
which killed Combort. Possibly one
minute or a minute and a half later
three more shots were fired, It Is sup
posed by the escaped murderer to pre
vent the two men In arrest from fol
Detectives Are Baffled.
It was anticipated by County Detec
tive Shea and the Dunmore police that
Boschlno would pass over the same
route as that taken by Nolll, an Italian
who escaped arrest after shooting his
wife's assaulter in Dunmore two years
ago. Consequently a watch was kept
at the junction of the Lackawanna
tracks and wagon road above the Elm
hurst station. No clue was obtained
of Boschtno's route and it is thought
he has sought safety in the mountains,
where he will hide during the days and
travel at night along unfrequented
roads toward Stroudsburg and New
, ,A pltjful chapter of the case Is the
anticipated maternity of , Combort's
wife. She started yesterday from her
home on Bunker Hill for Dunmore, but
Was overcome on the way and had to
be carried back to her house, where her
confinement is hourly expected.
At 10 o'clock last night a rumor that
Detective Shea had succeeded in locat
ing Boschlno and would wait until this
morning before arresting him could not
be verified. About that hour Sllvannl
and Embrl were removed from the Dun
more lockup and placed In the county
Jail. They are charged with being ac
cessories to the murder.
COYLE STILL HAS HOPES.
lie Says That If tho Twelfth Ward Ballots
Have Been Destroyed, Those Who Cast
Them Have Not.
Henry Coyle has not yet abandoned
hope In the contest he has Instituted
against Morgan Sweeney for the office
of common council of the Twelfth ward,
notwithstanding that most of the bal
lots necessary to decide the contest
have been destroyed.
Commissioners Thomas and Baylor
heard the testimony In the case yes
terday. Mr. Coyle says that If the bal
lots have been destroyed those who
cast them have not, and they can be
called Into court when the . illegal
votes are determined and asked to
state for whom they cast their ballots.
It Is a matter to be settled in the
future as to whether this can be dime.

Mrs. Mary Moran, a corpulent lady,

in the main court room yesterday morn
ing which resulted in her being com
mitted to the county jail for contempt
Mrs, Moran was accused of keeping a
tippling house and her case was set
down for a hearing before the grand
Jury yesterday. Early in the day she
partook freely of ' the mixture she Is
charged with dispensing and then pro
ceeded to the court house. Outside of
the grand Jury room she met several of
the witnesses who have been subpoe
naed to testify against her, and at them
hurled scandulous and insulting words.
Tipstaff Rltter ordered her to keep
silent and she ran into the district at
torney's office and began a tirade there.
Mr. Rltter ejected her and in the corri
dor another outburst of abusive lan
guage occurred. Then Mr. Rltter said
he would take her before the court If
she did not subside.
Do! I dare you! You can take me!"
yelled Mrs. Moran in a rage.
An Instant later she found herself
jerked Inside the doors of the main
court room. She sank to the floor and
declared she would go no further.
Tipstaff Anthony Walsh went to Mr.
Rltter's assistance and Mrs. Moran
was carried Inside the bar' enclosure

vanced toward the tipstaff with the
evident intention of getting personal

PROPERTY J1ERS WIN
Double Track' Will, Not Be Laid on
Franklin Avenue Just Yet.
OPINION OP JUDGE GUNSTEK
Permission of the City Should First Have
llccn Obtained Beforo Tracks ,ot Su
burban Company Were Disturbed.
The Gist of tho Opinion.
Judge Gunster yesterday continued,
until further order of the court, the
Injunction In the case of G. J. Babcock
and other property owners of Franklin
avenue against the Scranton Traction
company and People's Street Railway
company. This will prevent, for the
present at least, the laying Of a double
track on Franklin avenue between
Lackawannna avenue and Spruce
Many nice legal points were raisod
by the attorneys for the compluinuuts,
but the majority of these Judge Gun
ster did not thluk.it necessary to pass
upon in disposing of the present case.
He decided that the People's company
had no right to disturb the track of the
Suburban Railway company without
the permission of the city authorities.
To luy the double track it had been
found necessary to shift the Suburban
track several feet east of Its original
position. Judge Gunster held they had
no right to do anything of the kind,
even though the suburban company
did not object. Permission from the
city should first have been obtained.
That Constitutional Provision.
It was claimed by the complainant')
that while the People's company by its
charter, had the right to enter the
streets of the city and lay Its tracks
without obtaining permission from the
city authorities, It had forfeited these
ights and accepted the provisions of
the new constitution when it negotiat
ed the lease of its lines to the
Scranton Traction company in 18H2, un
der the act of 1887, which is legislation
nder the new constitution. The Peo
ple's company, It was held, would not
be entitled to take advantage of this
net without first accepting the provi
sions of the new constitution. In pass
ing on this point, Judge Gunster says:
"I cannot construe this agreement of
lease between these companies as an
acceptance of the provisions of article
17 of the constitution by the People's
Street Railway company. There is
nothing in the act of 1887 under which
the Traction company was Incorporat
ed, to Indicate that such would be the
effect of a contract entered Into by it
with a company Incorporated prior to
the adoption of the constitution of 1874."
The opinion closes as follows:
"The question for me is not so much
the standing of the plaintiffs as the
right of the defendants to do what they
propose doing. For the reasons already
given I am of the oplnlon.that the in
junction should be continued until that
right is made clear. The rule is made
absolute, and the Injunction heretofore
granted is continued until otherwise
