The Simons Cut Thera Down Because
l'liilip Wallmin Has Gathering the
'rult-Cases in Which Verdicts . .
Were Taken Yesterday. '
Court was not In session yesterday
flernuun and, therefore, the temple of
ustlue was somewhat In keeping with
the dull, heavy atmosphere of the outer
world. In court room No. 2 two cases
were disposed of and before Judge Ed
wards , In the main court only one
ise went to trial, but several verdicts
V. J. Mclntyre, an Insurance agent
for the Prudential Life Insurance com
pany, was on trial before Judge Al
bright when court opened, the Indict
ment against him being embezzlement.
The prosecution alleges that Mclntyre
ollected various amounts of money
rum subscribers of the company ana
nvarlably suffered from loss of mem
ory when the time arrived that he
should turn the money over to the
The defense assumed to have a con
tract made between ihlmsclf and the
ompany which stipulated thati ho was
to retain a certain percentage as com
mission. The .attorneys for the de-
ense maintained that the contract
hould have bet-n produced in evidence
and In the absence of It the Jury could
not convict the defendant. Judge Al
bright held a similar view and instruct
ed the Jury to return a vei'dict of not
John pinion and Bridget Simon, hus
band and wife, were next arraigned,
ndk'ted with tlTe offense of having
committed malicious mischief. Philip
Wallmin was .the prosecutor. The de
fendants reside In the borough of
Cut Down the Trues.
Wallmin wis a tenant of Mrs. Nancy
Shea, Simon's mother-in-law, and paid
rent to her for a house and the use of
the lot on which the house-Is situated.
Growing on the lot were fifteen fruit
ful cherry trees. When the season ar-
ived that the trees bore fruit, Wall
min made up his mind to gather the
cherry crop for his own use and the
Simons held that he had no right to the
cherries, so they chopped down the
trees with their tomahawks. The pro
secutor brought the suit olatmlng that
the rights of his lease entitled him to
the prerogative of gathering the har
vest of the trees. The Jury went out
to wrestle with themselves and had not
agreed upon a verdict at 5 o'clock.
Samuel Ambrose and his brother,
John, were called in the main court to
answer for having stolen Nlccolo Wll
lard's cabbage. On Uelmont street,
vrhondale, Wlllard, who Is a decrepit
old Italian, lives In a smnll shanty and
sustains himself out by tilling a small
garden which the Delaware and Hud
son company allows him gratuitously.
One corner of the garden was fertilized
most carefully by him and in It he
raised r few hundred heads of cabbage.
lie arose on the morning of Sept. 22 last
and found his cabbage garden de
stroyed and Immediately he had a war
rant issued for the .two defendants.
One of the brothers, John, did not an
swer to his name and a capias was is
sued for him. Samuel went on the
stand and endeavored to prove an alibi.
The Jury went out and did not wait
long to reach a verdict of guilty.
The Verdicts Returned.
A verdict was rendered by the Jury
in the case of the comonwealth against
John Mocknock In which Michael Colish
was the prosecutor. The defendant
was acquitted and the costs placed on
the prosecutor. Joseph Thoman, who
was charged by Robert Dltmore, the
Jermyn saloon keeper, with the larceny
of two pool balls, was found guilty and
sentenced to a fine of $1 and five days
In the county Jail. Mrs. Mary Hard
watz did not appear prosecute Joseph
Hudewick for selling liquor on Sunday
and on motion of District Attorney
Kelley the costs were placed on the
prosecutrix and a capias issued for her
In the case of the commonwealth
against Mieiiaei ivaiamin, onargeu ny
the prosecutor, Abruham lierger, with
felonious wounding, a verdict of not
guilty was taken. The indictment
ugainst George Prokopovitch, charged
with unlawfully refilling registered bot
tles by P. LronarQ, was quashed, In
the case of William Hogan, charged by
John Jay with resisting un olllcer, a
verdict of not guilty was taken, but
the defendant must pay the costs.
Mile Coslosky, a sweepish looking In
dividual, was called to nnswer a charge
of assault and battery. There was no
one In sight of the court who seemed
to want the honor of prosecuting him
and Michael escaped.
Hernard Davis, the terror of the Sec
ond ward speak easles, said that all
the witnesses to testify against Hannah
Finnan for - maintaining a tippling
house were out of the country and the
costs were placed on the county. Judge
Albright remitted the costs against Lea
P.oe.8, as Bhe Is a charge at present on
the Scranton poor district.

Patrick Sweeney, of Mlnooku, Home from
u Long Visit ut Cherry 11111.
Clerk of the Courts John H. Thomas
received Tuesday the legal document
from the officials at the Eastern pen!
tentlaryat Philadelphia, signifying that
Patrick Sweeney had served his term
of imprisonment and had been released,
Sweeney and his brother, Terry, who
was also convicted and sentenced to
the same term, but who died six years
ago In the penitentiary, used to live In
Oak hill, a small hamlet below Green
They were miners, but that was .too
slow an occupation, and they entered
upon a career of robbery. "Their flint
offense was cow stealing, which they
carried on to a wholesale extent. Next
they became .highwaymen find commit
ted many depredations- They terror
ized, the southern part of the county
and held up several persons. One night
they stopped Paymaster Robertson, of
the Katydid colliery, near Mooslc; he
covered them with his revolver before
they could demand his money and held
the drop on Patrick until some one ar
rived and captured him. Terry escaped
but eventually was also captured..,They
were tried and sentenced to' nine years
REASONS FOB A NEW TRIAL.
They Were Tiled with the Court in the
Cuse of the Coinmonwcultb Against
I run llczck.
Reasons for a new trial In the case of
Franz Iiezek, convicted last week of the
murder of Maria Kerzic, were present
ed to court yesterday morning by At
torneys Colborn and Watson. They set
forth that the court erred In admitting
the revolver and cartridges in evidence;
in admitting the testimony of Philip
Williams, C. I. P.ergen and Fred Mar
geureifder; In refusing to admit the evi
dence offered to Bhow that the defend-
and was confined in an asylum at Lie
bach; in refusing to admit the testimony
of John Kerochins; In striking out the
answer of Anthony Kranz to the ques
tion, "How did he act?;" In rejecting
the offer of the defendant to prove by
Anton llurshnak that Mr. and Mrs. Kra
mer bought the ticket upon which the
deceased girl came to this country, for
the purpose of contradicting the testi
mony of Mrs. Kramer upon that point.
Other specifications are:
The court erred In that part of his gen
eral charge In which he stated "Might is
considered evidence of guilt. It Is your
privilege to look upon this testimony in
that light; It will bear that construction.
You may also look upon It as evidence of
fear on the part of the defendant." It is
for the Jury to state whether it will bear
that construction and not for the court
to instruct the jury that it will bear that
The court erred In that part of the gen
eral charge to the Jury in which he slated
that ,"the evidence to sustain this conten
tion of the defendant appears to me to be
meagre. This language no doubt hud
weight with the Jury in considering the
question of the Insanity of the defendant,
It being while discussing the evidence on
that point that the court made this re
mark. The court erred In suggesting that the
testimony of Mrs. Kramer or Roscnfelt be
read before the Jury, when the Jury asked
for the testimny showing the condition
of the prisoner's mind at the time he
committed the act of shooting. The tes
timony of all the witnesses should have
been read before the Jury.
These reusons will be discussed at
MRS. J0XES-DAYIS SILENT.
Another Proposition Mudo by John Jer
myn to the Millincr-The Store Offered
John Jermyn has made a new proposi
tion to Mrs. Leah Jones-Davis, milliner,
to vacate the building adjoining the
new Hotel Jermyn property at the cor
ner of Wyoming avenue and Spruce
street. During the summer legal steps
were taken and court decided that the
ise held by Mrs. Davis from the prop
erty owner from whom Mr. Jermyn
purchased the building, Is good for two
years. After the court's decision Mr
Jermyn made no denial of having of
fered Mis. Davis a goodly sum to re
linquish her tenancy.
The Inducement was not substantial
enough and the millinery is doing bus!
ness at the old stand.
Mr. Jermyn's most recent Inducement
to Mrs. Davis was made on Friday. It
is reported to be a very handsome offer
and Included free rent In the bnsement
of Mr. Jermyn's building at 117 Wyo'

PATRICK DEAN RELEASED.
Judge Uunster Decides That He Shall N
Longer He Ifestiained.
Judge Gunster made an order yester
day discharging Patrick A. Dean from
the insane department of'the. Hillside
Home, where he has been confined for
two weeks. Dr. Evans, the resident
physician, Informed Judge Gunster that
Dean was harmless and that he did not
think he would be benefited by re
maiulng at the home.
Dean was committed to the asylum
at the request of his brother, John
Dean, who said that Patrick's mind
was breaking down. Ills attorneys ob
talned a writ of habeas corpus and last
Monday a hearing was held. At its
conclusion Judge Gunster decided to

Officers Will Ketire and New
Ones Assume Their I) flics.
JJAXY XEs? PACES IU BE SEES
In Several of the Offices a New Force of
Assistants Will Take the Place of
Those Who Arc Now
About Jan. 7 there will be many
changes In the personnel of the servants
of the people who attend to public busi
ness In the court house. Five of the
present office holders will move out to
make way for the successful candidates
at flie November election.
Dliitrlct Attorney Kelly will relinquish
his suite of offices on the second floor of
the building and District Attorney-elect
Jhn R. Jones will take possession of
thorn. Attorney James O'Neill, who has
been Mr. Kelly's assistant, will also bid
adieu to the district attorney's office.
Attorney John M. Harris Is to succeed
him. Mr.' Jones proposes to have a sec
ond assistant, but has not as yet di
vulged who he will be.
The business of the district attorney's
office has increased to such an extent
during the last few years that two as
sistants are necessary to keep abreast
of the flood of cases that find their way
John J. Fahey steps out of the sher
iff's olllee and Frank H. Clemons takes
his place. All of Mr. Fahey's deputies
go with him except, possibly, Frank
Ryan, who has been uhlef deputy in the
!Hce for years. He is thoroughly
ersed In all the complicated details of
the business connected with the office
und may be retained at least until such
time as Mr. Clemons has become per
fectly familiar with all the details of
his duties as high sheriff of Lacka
It speaks well for the care with
which Sheriff Fahey has conduct
ed his otlice that not a single
trespass suit has been brought
against him during his term. Such ac
tions are the outgrowth of illegal sales
and levies and are the bugbears of sher
iffs, for the best of officials will at times
make mistakes, especially when half a
dozen persons claim ownership to the
goods to be levied on.
Force I'ndcr the Sheriff.
Sheriff Fahey has three office depu
ties, besides one or two In the country
districts, and has a force of seven men
at the county Jail. It Is probable that
Sheriff-elect Clemons will have a simi
lar force. Since his election he has re
celvedhundredsof applications for posi
tions. There Is every reason to believe
that J. D. Ferber, the courteous door
tender at the Academy of Music, will be
one of the olllee deputies. He would
make an excellent olllclal.
The name of E. E. Robathan Is also
mentioned In connection with a deputy
ship. John Phillips, of the West Side,
Is mentioned for the position of warden
of the Jail.
ProthonotaryC.E.rryor will continue
to do business at the old stand for three
years more, and will retain his present

for three more years and Thomas 1'.
