JISTUE METED 01T.
Pcnultloa Imposed Saturday by the Judges
of Our Courts on Offenders Against
Judge Edwards was on the bench
Saturday monilug and imposed
sentences on those who were convicted
during the week. Francis Morrow, the
20-year-old Archbald young man, who
plead guilty rather than go to trial,
was called first for sentence. The Tri
bune announced that the court assigned
Attorney George W. Beale to defend
Morrow when his case wus called for
trial. That was Incorrect, as Attorney
E. C. Newcomb represented Morrow,
and on Saturday, when the defendant
was culled for sentence, he made a
strong plea for mercy. Judgs Edwards
gave him a scathing lecture and said he
took into consideration the condition of
the prisoner's mother, who is a feeble
old woman. On that account the
penalty would be a most lenient one
for the crime of which the young man
was guilty. The sentence for burglary
was a fine of $',0 and Imprisonment In
the Eastern penitentiary at hard labor
for one year and six months; and for
larceny the same fine and one year Im
prisonment, the second sentence to
begin at the expiration of the first.
John Meglln, found guilty of selling
liquor on Sunday, was sentenced to a
fine of $50, costs of prosecution and
twenty-one days In the county jail.
Henry Parker, who plead guilty to
the crime of grand larceny In stealing
a horse and carriage from Liveryman
Pierce, of Carbondale, was sentenced to
a fine of $50, costs of prosecution and
one one year and six months In the
Eastern penitentiary at hard labor In
separate and solitary confinement.
Abraham Jones, of Austin Heights,
who brutally assaulted Mrs. Michael
Lyman, and was convicted, got a severe
dose of justice from Judge Gunster. It
was a fine of $50. the costs of prosecu
tion, and five months in the county
Samuel Ambrosia, found guilty of
stealing cabbages from the garden of
Nlccola Wlllardo In Carbondale, was
sentenced to pay a fine of $25 and the
costs of prosecution.
Joseph Gruemenskl, who was found
not guilty of false pretenses In passing
a Confederate $50 bill, was sentenced to
pay the costs. Constable Jonathan
Venison was found guilty of aggravated
assault and battery and the eight Huns
whom, he prosecuted for resisting Hn
officer were also found guilty. Sentences
in these cases were not Imposed.
THE FEAR OF DEATH.
A False Notion That the Dying Usually
From Scrlbner's Magazine.
Familiarity with death Is not apt to
alter one's earlier conception of It. Two
Ideas areyery generally accepted which
experience shows to be false. One Is
that the dying usually fear death, and
the other that the act of dying is accom
panled by pain. It is well known to all
physicians that when death Is near Its
terrors do not seem to be felt by the pa
tlent. Unless the Imagination is stlmu
lated by the frightful portrayal of the
supposed "pangs of death," or of the
Bufferings which some .believe the soul
must endure after dissolution, it Is rare
Indeed that the last days or hours of
lifo are passed In dread. Oliver Wen
dell Holmes has recorded his protest
against the custom of telling a person
who does not actually ask to know,
that lie cannot recover. As that lov
ing observer of mankind asserts, so
must everyone, mho knows whereof he
speaks, assert that people must always
come to understand that recovery Is Im
possible; It Is rarely needful to tell any
one that this is the cuse,
When nature gives the warning, death
appears to be as little feared us sleep
Most sick persons are very, very tired
sleep long, quiet Bleep Is what they
want. I have seen many peoplo die. I
have never seen one who seemed to fear
death, except when It was, or seemed to
be, rather far awny. Even those who
are constantly haunted, while strong
and well, with a dread of the end of
life, forget their fear when that end
Is at hand. As for the act of dying the
final passage from life to death It is
absolutely without evidence that the
oft-repeuted assertions of Its painful-
ness are made. Most people are uncon
sclous for some hours before they die
and In the rare cases where conscious
ness Is retained unimpaired until a few
minutes before the end, the last sensa
tion" must be of 'perfect calm and rest,
It Is worse than cruel to add to the nut-
ural dread of death which oppresses the
majority of us while In good health
the dread of dying. There Is surely fear
enough In this suffering world; let us
not Increase It by adding Imaginary to

PARADE DRJJIIO PARADE
Trying to Decide How St. Patrick's
Day Will Be Celebrated.
AN ENTERTAINMENT FAY0KED
The Matter Was Discussed at Length at
Last Night's Meeting of Dclcgutcs of
the Irish-American Societies
of the City.
Eight societies were represented by
their delegates at last night's meeting
in Sheridan Rifles' armory of the Lack
awanna County Council of Irish-American
societies. The societies were:
Father Mathew's, Hyde Park; Division
No. 6, Ancient Order of Hibernians,
Providence; Division No. 17, Ancient
Order of Hibernluns, Scranton; St,
Thomas Branch,' Irish Catholic Benevo
lent union; Sheridan Rifles; Henry
Grattan club, and John Mitchell club.
Chairman J. C; Vaughan was absent
and P. J. Honan was ek-cted to pre
side. Short preliminary business was
transacted and under the subject of the
good of the. order the delegates In
dulged lu an expression of their views
on the means of creating an enthusiasm
among the members that will Insure an
earnest co-operation and which will
unite In securing an attendance which
will take up the purposes of the so
cieties with a will.
One of the members thought that If
every delegate would represent to his
society when he reported the proceed
ings of the meeting that a very deep
Interest was not being taken, Buch
would arouse them to renewed effort,
and if delegates were remiss In attend
lngmeetings of the council others would
be chosen who would be more active.
This was approved.
The subject that attracted the most
discussion was that bearing on how the
Irish and Irish-American societies In
tend to celebrate St. Patrick's Day in
this city. Some of the delegates favored
a parade and others thought It would
be wiser to hold an entertainment and
Invite good speakers to address It
Those who favored a parade said that
the Irish element in Lackawanna coun
ty Is 47 per Cent, of the population and
for that reason they ought to observe
the anniversary of their patron Baint
in a befitting manner. Other nationali
ties not half as strong celebrate such
occasions, and they think and show by
their actions that nothing too good
toward the veneration of the one they
honor can be done.
An entertainment, the opposite side
believed, would be more practically
beneficial If good speakers were en
gaged and a fine musical and literary
programme, presented. The matter was
not decided, however,, at last night's
meeting, and it was settled that a
special meeting be held on the third
Sunday of January to complete all ar
rangements and agree upon .a proper
method of honoring St. Patrick.
The committee on constitution and
by-laws reported progress. It was the
Intention if there had been a larger
meeting to take up the question of
purchasing a library, but the mutter
was not touched upon.
