SPECIAL TERfflOF COURT
Aliened Violators of the law vho
Were Before the bar of Justice.
THE FLEAS OF GUILTY ENTERED
Thomas J. Bilboa Admitted His Transgres
sion and Sentence Was Suspended.
Cases Heard Before a Jury Mo
Kcnna Defended Himself.
Judge George S. Purdy, of Honesdale,
opened the special December term of
criminal court yesterday morning and
presided In the main court room. Judge
Archbald, came upon the bench tempo
rarlly and handed down an order ap
pointing County Surveyor A. B. Dun
ning, John W. Cure, of Greenfield, and
H. II. White, of Glenburn, viewers to
make a report ait the next term of
court regarding the erection of a road
In Scott township.
Cases were disposed of without trial
as follows: Commonwealth against
Peter McC.inn, charged with assault
and battery, the defendant plead guilty
and was sentenced to pay a fine of $10
and the costs of the prosecution; com
monwealth against Philip Gross,
charged with feloniously wounding
John Terelll, the defendant plead guilty
and was remanded for sentence.
Thomas J. Bilboa, under Indictment
for embezzling school tax, was called
for trial and he entered a plea of guilty.
Bilboa in 1S88 was collector of delln
quent school tax In the Twcnty-llrst
ward, and he is charged with having
retained money he collected. The case
has been continued during several
terms of count, as the defendant is
showing a disposition to refund the
money embezzled. Sentence .was sus
pended until the next term of court, by
which lie has promised to have refund
ed the entire amount. Bilboa swung
out as a politician and swamped him
self In his efforts to get elected to coun
Mrs. Ann Cummlngs was put on trial
for feloniously wounding Mary Casey.
The case took up much valuable time
before Judge Purdy, and it should net
have got Into court at all.- The Jury
found a verdict of not guilty. Michael
Casey was defendant In a surety case
growing out of the aforementioned
one, and on motion of District Attorney
Kelly the young man was brought be
fore the court and discharged with a
reprimand by Judge Purdy, who placed
the costs on the county.
A Kelic of the Glorious Fourth.
The last case for the day In the main
court room represented Michael Mc-
Kenna defendant In two- case9, mal
Icious mischief .and simple assault.
The prosecutor was an old man named
Michael Healey. The prosecutor was
without counsel and argued his own
case very much to the amusement of
the court. The prosecutor lives alone
In a small hut In the Fourth ward of
Carbondale. On the night before the
last Fourth of July, the prosecutor al
leges that McKenna and a companion
came along about 2 o'clock in the morn
ing and knocked the front door of his
house from the hinges by fusllading It
with stones. On July 13 the defendant
came along and threw a stone at the old
man. McKenna admitted having
thrown the stone, but denied being out
the night before the Fourth. Consta
ble Moran, of Carbondale, was the only
witness for the prosecution, and he
verified the prosecutor's story regard
ing the battered door, but he could not
swear that the defendant was con
cerned In the mischief.
Judge Purdy asked the defendant If
he had anything to say to the Jury and
Mr. McKenna made the following ad
dress: "Gentlemen of the Jury, now
don't It look kind a funny that I would
beat an old man? I did not do It, and I
never even broke a dog's leg in my life.
That is all have to say." The Jury ac
quitted him of malicious mischief and
placed the cost on the county. They
found him guilty, however, on his own
admission of assault.
In court room No. 2 Judge SIttser, of
Tunkhannock, held court. John Dolan
and his wife, Bridget Dolan, were
called to answer the charge of assault
and battery prefered . by. Mrs. Kate
O'Brien. The Jury divided the costs
equally. A counter suit of assault and
battery, In which the same parties were
concerned, was similarly disposed of.
Siangan Doys in Trouble.
Thomas Casey, of Mlnooka, had a
charge against four sons of Patrick
Mangan, his neighbor. The boys'
names are: Patrick, Thomas, Michael
and Martin. The boys were alleged to
have thrown stones at the defendant
and In the trial of the case It devel
oped that the action was more an effort
to vindicate spite than a desire to Bee
Justice done. The Jury acquitted the
boys and equally divided the costs be
tween the prosecutor and the son, Pat
rick. The next case before Judge SIttser
was that of David Harris against Wel-
gand Stern and Michael Stern. The
Sterns had a case against the prosecu
tor and a man named Edward Howells.

Both cases were tried together. Attor
neys Joseph O'Brien and C. Comegy
represented the Sterns, and Attorney
H. L. Taylor the other side. Last July
a fight took place In the saloon of
Welgand Stern, on Price Btreet. Har
ris was drunk and bent on quarrel.
Stern put him out and he came In
again. Stern's wife was at the door
and Harris caught hold of her, throw
ing her to the ground. Michael Stern,
her son, went to get a club to defend his
mother, and Edward Howells appeared
on the scene and took It from the boy.
The Sterns, father, mother, and son,
Edward Howells and David Harris got
tangled up In a fight and the suits are
the result. The case was on at adjourn
ment. Court adjourned until Wednes
day morning at 9 o'clock.
IX LOCAL THEATERS.
Marie Jansen, the widely known
comic opera prima donna. In her fam
ous play, "Delmonico's at Six," will be
at the Frothlngham this afternoon and
evening. Miss Jansen made her debut
last winter as a star In this comedy,
and was accorded a most flattering re
ception wherever she appeared. The
part of Trlxle Hazelmere, vaudeville
queen, In "Delmonico's at Six," is said
to suit her exactly. She Is Independent,
forward, careless of conventional
forms, and altogether breezy old de
lightful. II II II
Ward and Vokes in their funny farce
comedy, "A Run on the Bank," will be
the attraction at the Academy of Music
this afternoon and evening. The farce
teems with specialties of a superior
nature. There Is a dash and vim and
color In th.lr action that- causes the
most blase to respond vigorously. Of
course, rhecentral figures are Ward and
Vokss. These magnetic comedians are
full of clever original Ideas, and their
presence In farce comedy Is sure to
have a decided effect upon the risabili
ties of those In front.

Academy of Music Wednesday evening,
Dec. 26, as Menick, the new Magdalene,
Is abuut the average height, with hazel
eyes, dark hair, Grecian nose, laughing
mouth and pearly complexion. Her
face, a very beautiful one, is made the
more so by succession of smiles which
play across It, each seeming to be
brighter than its predecessor, and each
seeming to try and retain possession.
She is not only an actress, but an artist
and musician of more than ordinary
II II II
Chauncey Olcott will be seen ait the
Academy of Music Thursday night in
his new play, "The Irish artist." The
play has plenty of merit, and makes
Olcott bolder and stronger than he was
In the "Mavourneen." Several new and
catchy songs are Introduced, and the
costumes are correctly designed by Og
den. Mr. Olcott wins plenty of atten
tion, and his play Is accepted with en
thusiasm. "In the Tenderloin," which will be
seen at the Frothlngham Thursday
night, Isa play which deals with phases
of life In that part of New York city
which has been brought Into great
prominence by the disclosures before

most realistic melo dramas now on the

Time-tried and tented Is Jolly Joe Ott,
and his big farce comedy company,
who assisted In cornering merriment at
the Academy of Music on his former
visit. How well he is liked is demon
strated In the fatft that he has been se
cured for a return engagement ait the
Academy next Friday night. He will
be assisted by that same clever com
pany in that same hilarious farce, "The
Star Gazer," and It is needless to say
that a large house will greet him.

something, to make the unfortunate

of the beneficence of these humane and

gastronomic luxuries than they have

The Work Accomplished.
Altogether sixty-two families were
