Prank Bruncr Convicted of Aggravated
Assault and Battery.' '
FRANK MORROW PLEADS GUILTY
He Will Be Sentenced Saturday for Shoot
ing Constable Doughcr, of Archbald.
Hair fulling Match at Little Eng.
land Ventilated la Court.
Frank Bruner's case In court room
No. 1, which was on trial Monday, was
finished soon after court opened yester
day morning and the jury returned late
in the afternoon with a verdict acquit
ting him of felonious wounding and
carrying concealed weapons, but find
ing him guilty on the charge of ag
gravated assault and battery.
Frank Morrow, of Archbald, charged
with burglury, larceny and receiving,
and aggravated assault and battery.
was called for trial before Judge Ed
wards. 'Morrow is the desperate youth
who was caught in the act of burglariz
ing a store in Archbald last summer,
and when Constable Dougher attempted
to arrest him, fired and struck the eon
stable with a bullet from his revolver.
The constable to this day carries a
bullet In his side. Morrow escaped to
New York and made a desperate at
tempt to escape from two policemen
there who tried to arrest htm.. He
kicked one of them in the stomach,
knocking him down stairs, broke away
from the other oillcer and lied to the
roof of the building, but was Anally
captured. Sheriff Fahey went to New
York and brought him back to the
.Morrow Pleads. Guilty.
When his case was about to go to
trial Morrow had no counsel and court
assigned Attorney Georgo W. lieale to
Oyfend him. Morrow, after a short
consultation with his counsel, plead
guilty to aggravated assault and bat
tery. He will be sentenced on Satur
day. The next case before Jue Ed
wards was another of those exasperat
ingly trivial ones. and the verdict ought
to have been that of the imposition of
the costs upon the prosecutor. Joseph
Thoman and A. Walchesky were
charged by Robert Ditmore with steal
ing pool balls. There was no evidence
to convict and the jury went out, but
had not returned with a verdict when
The same Jury was again sworn to
try John Moshnock on two charges;
malicious mischief and carrying con
cealed weapons. Michael Colish was
the prosecutor. Attorney A. W. Bert
holf assisted District Attorney Kelly
In the prosecution, and H. L. Taylor
represented the defendant. One Sun
day,-a year ago last August, Moshnock
observed the Lord's day by filling him
self up with Wlnton whisky. Both
parties live In that borough. About 10
o'clock that night the defendant round
ed up in front of Collsh's house armed
with, a revolver and began to disport
himself by firing shots promiscuously.
Asleep on the Stoop.
The prosecutor was asleep on the
front stoop of the house and one of the
bullets imbedded Itself in the window
sash a few feet above his head, arous
ing him from his slumber. When he
went on the witness stand Judge Ed
wards asked him if he could talk Eng
lish and he shook his head with a
The defence was that a fight was in
progress outside Colish s house, the
defendant was being assaulted, and he
llred the t?hrtt to protect himself. An
tonio Luenzo was-. Included In the in
dictment as an accessory. The Jury
retired to deliberate upon a verdict a
few minutes before court adjourned.
In court room No. 2, before Judge
Albright, the first case called was one
of asault and battery In which three
women were involved. Mrs. Mary
Fuery and Mrs. Lena Decker were the
defendants, and Mrs. Teresa Jones the
prosecutrix. They are neighbors and
live In "Little England," In the Tenth
ward. The two defendants are sisters.
The allegation of the commonwealth
Is that on June 6 the prosecutrix, who
then rented half of the house In which
Mrs. Fuero lived, was coming down
stairs nncl :shuting "Robber!" and
'Thief!" at the top of her vcilee.
When she reached the hallway, the
prosecutrix looked out from her room
and Mrs. Fuery caught her by the
throat and punimeled her with her
lists. The other defendant, Mrs,
Decker, came over to assist in the as
sault. Hair Pulling Mulch.
The defense testified that Mrs. Jones
was the aggressor, ana this Is their
story of how it occurred: Mrs. Fuery
said she was coming down stairs with a
pan of dough in her hands, going out to
the oven to have It baked. Mrs. Jones
met her half-way, caught her by the
hair of the head and pulled out enough
to make a wig for an English chief Jus
tice. A neighbor told Mrs. Decker that
her sister was getting an awful beat
ing, and, with a heart beating with sis
terly love, she went to the rescue. It
developed that Mrs. Jones was more
than a match for the two of them and
the result was that Mrs. Feury and
Mrs. Decker were beaten instead of
Mrs. Jones. The hair whioh, It Is al
leged, Mrs. Jones extraoted by the roots
from Mrs. Decker s crown of glory was
offered In evidence. It took the jury
a long time to reaoh a verdict, and tfyey
had not arrived at one wnen court ad
Charged with Embezzlement.
The last case called In No. 2 was that
of William J. Mclntyre, against whom
the Prudential Life Insurance company
appeared as prosecutor. The defendant
is charged with i embezzlement, with
having collected, ' while acting g an
agent of the company, certain sums of
money which he failed to account for,
The case proceeded no further than
the opening by the attorney for the
prosecution. Court Issued an attach
ment for Mrs. Ann Forrester and Mrs,
Sarrah Flattley, two witnesses In this
case, who failed to respond to the

IX LOCAL THEATERS.
During its existence of three-quarters
of a century James Sheridan Knowles"
masterpiece, "Virglnus," in which
James O'Neill will be seen at the Acad
emy of Music tonight, has preserved
its hold on the American public Intact.
There never was a more impressive
tragedy than this story of parental and
filial love and grief. Since the days of
Forrest, many American actors have
achieved prominence In the part of Vlr
ginlus, and the last to join-their ranks
is James O'Neill, of "Monte Cristo"
fame. And if reports'may be believed
the last is not the least, in fact. The
press in cities where Mr. O'Neill played
"Virglnlus" last season are a unit In
praise for his great work, which, In
every Instance is pronounced the equal,
If not the superior, to his immortal
creation of the Count of Monte Cristo.
An excellent company will support Mr.
The inimitable comedian, Joe Ott,
will be at the Academy of Music Thurs
day night in his new play, "The Star
Gazer." It Is needless to enter into de
tail regarding the merits of this suc
cessful fun maker. The past two sea
sons he has appeared In all the leading
cities of the country in his successful
comedy farce, "The Dazzler," and
where his droll humor has not been
laughed at Is only In the remotest dis
tricts. Mr. Ott's support this season
will be made up of such clever talent
as Mott and Phil Ott, Marie Darcey
May Jordon, James F. McDonald, Joe
Harrington, James B. Watklns, Doro
thy Gray, Luclla Miller and a host of
other clever actors.
II II II
On Thursday, Friday and Saturday
evenings "The Engineer" will be pro
duced at the Frothlngham. A matinee
will also be given on Saturday after
noon. The Philadelphia Call says of
the drama: "The first Philadelphia
production of 'The Engineer' was given
before a crowded house at the Standard
theater last evening. The plot is drawn
on lines similar to 'The Old Homestead'
and 'Blue Jeans,' and is Interesting to
a high degree, the characters protrayed
being realistic to an extreme. The
company Is a very strong one, while
good clean comedy is Interspersed
throughout, and several good special
ties are Introduced at the proper time
and place. The play was thoroughly
by the large audience pres-
"Eight Bells" will be presented by
Brothers Byrne, who have no peer on
the pantomimic stage, at the Academy
Music Saturday night. Brothers
Byrne have completed the new material
for this season's production and It Is
wonderful. There has been an outlay
of over $15,000. They have left nothing
undone and have undoubtedly the best
and most complete pantomimic comedy
on the stage.
SERIES OF CONCERTS.
he First Will be Given on Thursday
Scranton is again to have an excel
lent series of chamber concerts similar
to the Philharmonics of a few years
ago. The gentlemen who give them are
all musicians of well known ability,
and have striven to make the pro
gramme of educational value as well
as artistically successful. Mis. Dlm
mlck will be warmly welcomed again,
as It is always a pleasure to hear her
pure, clear voice. The programme of

the outskirts of Camden, N. J., between
James Judge, formerly of ithe South

A Bridegroom of Three Weeks Expires at
.Moses Taylor Hospital.
Michael Devers, who fell from a car
in the Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western yard Monday night, died at
the Moses Taylor hospital yesterday at

HEALING WITH AND WITHOtTT
Thcf Greatest Cures of Modern Times.
The .greatest cures of any age Is being
performed by Dr. Andrews and his emi
nent physicians at the Hotel 'Westmin
ster, Serunton. For a number of days
they were healing the sick, deaf, lume
and crippled In public at Music hall and
so wonderful were these cureB that they
were in the mouths of everybody. They
are now treating scores of people dally at
their office In the Hotel Westminster.
They charge nothing for consultation and
do not undertake any incurable cases,
and so dure are they of giving relief that
they are glad to make contracts for guar
anteed cases where nothing Is to be paid
until the patient Is entirely recovered.
If you are sick, lame, crippled or deaf,
If other doctors have failed to help, go ut
once consult and these physicians. They
have cured thusands who were at the very
gates of death, and they may be able to
WILLIAMS' SCRANTON PIRECTOHY.
Taylor, who Is trying to supplant me as
publisher of the Scranton Directory, de
nied having written the postal card sent
me, which Btated that he was taking or
ders for me on the Scranton Directory.
Since I published the photo-engraving of
the postal and proved him a liar, he now
produces a letter (which is correct with
the exception of spelling the word nor
nore) written five days after tho postal
card, Informing me that he had not been
working for me, acknowledging that he
lied In the postal card which said he was
working for me and that orders were com
lng In slowly. The reason Taylor sent the
letter of the 19th was becauso I wrote him
I was going to send a man to help him and
ordered him to send orders taken by him
to me daily, and knowing that he could
cover his tracks no longer he tried to
make a virtue of a necessity by writing
me fiat re w.u not working for me. T;
lor Is the modern Ananias. One of the
rackets he works to scrure patronage is
that he Is a citizen of Scranton. He has
not been In Scranton a year during the
last four years all told. Ho registered In

name appears in the Wllkes-Barre Di
