ARCHILD'S GAY OFFICER
Johnathan Venison Tried for Shoot

THE KIDGE MUCH IN EVIDENCE
If a Few .More Places Like It Were in the
County, Court Would Have Its Hands
- Full-I'olundcr Who lid Not Know .
Wnr Was Over.
Constable Jonathan Venison's case
took up nearly all of the day before
Judge Edwards yesterday. It was a
cross suit, Venison being both defend
ant and prosecutor. District Attorney
lyelley looked after the Interests of the
constable and Attorney M. A. McGinloy
represented the other side. On Sunday,
Aug. 2L a number of Polish denizens of
the Ridge were jollilieating and a law
abiding citizen named Thomas Stiles
had a warrant sworn out nnd It was
placed in the constable's hands to serve.
When Venison, as he alleges, attempted
to serve the warrant he was set upon
by almost the entire comunity and he
bad to retrent to save himself. When
pushed to the wall he drew his revolver
and fired, the ball Btriklng a Hun named
Joseph Wooleschesky In the thigh,
going in on one side and out on the
The wounded man was prosecuting
the constable yesterday for firing that
shot nnd the constable was prosecuting
him and others on the charge of resist
ing an officer while making an arrest.
The defense claimed that Venison
pulled his revolver without cause and
that it was only to prevent him from
committing murder that they Inter
fered. Judge Edwards charged . the
jury carefully and Instructed them to
weigh the evidence nnd nrrlve at a
verdict which will meet the approval of
their consciences. A constable has a
right to carry arms while In the dis
charge of his duty, nnd he must be
responsible to the law that gives him
that power for a propoer use of these
arms. He cannot use his ofllce for per
sonal ends and the jury must believe
that he was conscientiously executing
his duty when he got 'Into' the trouble.
No verdict had been returned at ad
journment. Another Atiglin Case.
The last case for the week was called
for trial at 3.30 before Judge Edwards.
Joseph Grumlnsky was charged In the
Indictment in which Joseph Miglin is
prosecutor with having obtained
money under false pretenses, District
Attorney Kelly represented the com
munwealth, and Attorney Charles E.
Olver the defendant. The prosecutor
was the first witness on the stand and
he swore that in the early part of last
August Ruminlsky came into his store
situated at the Ridge and asked for
the change of a bill of United States
currency valued at $j0.
By scraping together all the money
he had in the store and with the loan
of $30 from his brother, the guileless
storekeeper changed the bill. A few
days afterward he came down to Scran
ton to stow the half-hundred safely
away in the bank. The cashier told
him he was thirty years behind the
times, that the war ended in 1SG5, that
Jefferson Davis was dead, the govern
ment at Washington stljl lives, and sev
eral other allied remarks. In plain
words it was a Confederate bill.
Attorney Olver was Instructed to
opt'ii his case, but Instead he argued for
binding instructions. He submitted
authorities and went on to show that
no fraudulent intent had been proven
by the prosecution. Judge Edwards
said he would pass upon the arguments
Two little boys, Theodore Harvey and
William MeLoughlln, ns the result of
an assault and baittery committed on
the person of Joseph Andrewkltis, were
put on trial before the court. Attorney
John F. Scragg prosecuted the boys and
ex-Judge W. H. Stanton defended them.
The tale of woe 'told by Andrewkltis
was that on Oct. 16 last he was passing
along the gangway road from his work
as a laborer, and at a certain point met
the 'two defendants, who were driver
boys. They refused to let him pass and
blocked the road with a vicious mule
whilth Would kick at any one that at
tempted to go by. When he asked
them to 'take the mule out of the way,
they paid no attention, but kept on teas
ing the animal. Afterward they stoned
him and repeated the same operation
after they got outside at Ihe mule barn.
There they struck him with a stone in
the face and Inflicted painful cuts.
The defendants assented that the
prosecutor began the assault and that
they were acting only to protect them
selves. ; They admitted having thrown
stones at him. It was the last case
heard In No. 2 court room. The jury
did not wait long to reach a verdict.
After being out a half hour they filed
Into court again and declared thjat the
defendants were guilty In manner and
form as charged In the Indictment.
Judge Albright told the jury that thy
could rely thait no severe punishment
would follow their verdict.
Plea of Guilty Kntcrcd.
Mary Roberts plead guilty to the of
fonse of larceny and receiving and was
sontenoed to $1 fine, the costs, a restora
tion of the stolen property and ten days
in the county Jail. The jury acquitted
William G. Miller of malicious mischief
under the lndldtment of hewing down
timber trees, but placed the costs upon
him. Thomas Logan was sentenced to
the costs, and a capias was- Issued for
Mary Morarn, who was Indicted for
keeping a tippling house, and later she
was brought Into count and pleaded
guilty. 1 Judge Archbald Sentenced her
to & fine of $500, costs in the case, and
three months In the county jail.
In the oases against Constables Pat
rick Honnegan and J. W. Clark, charged
With extortion, verdicts of not guilty
were taken upon promise of defendants
to pay the oosts. Gwennle James was
tried for assaulting Jonnie Fleming.
The Jury divided the costs. A capias
was sent out for James Dunleavy who
was Indicted for feloniously wounding
Michael Noonan. James Carroll was
tried for assaulting J.' A. Hubert and
the Jury acquitted him, but ordered
that ho pay the costs.
