Coses That W'cro Culled I'p for Trlul In Court Itoom No. J-l'dwurds l'lcuds Utility to tlic Charges. JucIkc Edwards was on tho bench In Xo. 2 court room, and when court opened the case uguhist Mrs. Margaret Harry was ivMiimeil. Mrs. Hurry went on the stand i;:ul snvore Unit she had not Mi'ld any Intoxicating drinks since t. l.'S last. She was tried at the last term of criminal court for keeplns a tippling house and found guilty of the olli'iiw. Site is now serving a term m the county jail. Tin- jury found a ver dict of not guilty, and placed the costs on the tiefemlunt. The next case Involved two little breaker boys. Richard lluddy was the prosecutor and Martin Mungun the de fendant. Doth woilicil 111 tne lioiucu breaker. In Taylor, and one day last November Mat::.;un placed a hot coal in the chute ho thr.t lluddy would pick It up. lluddy did pick the coal up, and it burned his hand so badly that he was not uble to itk for two weeks. Mungun said that It was a trick com mon among breaker boys and it Is very freiiucntily played. lie admitted he fixed the coal so that lluddy would pick it up, but he did not mean any harm by It. The Jury found a verdict of lint guilty ami ordered the defendant t.i pay three-fourths and the prosecutor one-fourth of the costs. The next case was that of Michael Gossamer against Kichurd Richards and Patrick Gallagher, charging as sault und battery. Tho prosecutor and the two defendants live nt the Khlge near Arehbald. On Dec. 5 last Cassa- mer and hia laborer were on their way to work In the miaes of the Hluo Ridge Coal company. The laborer had a can of oil and both defendants attempted to use some of it without Casstr.iier's consent. When he interposed Ualla gher and Ri .-hards assaulted him and he was not uble to work for three days. The defense was that they took a lamp full of oil apiece out of a can which they had a right to do and that Cassamer tried to stop them and they orjy shoved him away. The jury found a verdict of not ;rutlty and ordered the defendants to pay the costs. , KJwards Pleaded Guilty. E. C. Kd wards, the typewriter thief, wa3 led from the prisoners' dock and his attorneys-. A. J. Colliorn and H. C. Reynolds had a conference with Dis trict Attorney Jams. The district at torney stated to Judge Uunster that the attorneys for the defense proposed to him to save lime and expense by having Edwards plend guilty to the indictment of larceny by bailee in case the other two indictments were dropped alnsL hint. There seemed to be a nils- undertandlng about this between the opposing attorneys, however, and the case wan called before Judge Edwards in No. 2. The defendant, who also goes by tho name- of Cooper, cam" to this city, boarded at the Wyoming House, und represented himself us an insurance agent. He rented desk- room in the office cf Monies & Jackson. of Spruce street, nnd also hired a type writer machine from the Remington igency of Wyckoff, Seaman & Piene- dict, of Lackawanna avenue. Edwards suddenly left the town, without paying his board bill at the Wyoming, and taking with him the typewriter machine and a mackintosh valued at J1S, owned by Mr. Jackson. He was captured at Klnghamton and the typewriter and mackintosh were re covered. District Attorney Jones left the mat ter of dropping the prosecution on the Indictments charging larceny and re ceiving In the mackintosh case and de frauding a boardlnjr house keeper In the Wyoming Houf-e case, to the court. Judge Edwards decided that the ends of Justice would be served as well by having the defendant plead guilty In the typewriter case in consideration of the withdrawal of the other two cases. The court stated that the penalty would in all probability be as severe as if he were convicted of all three cases. The only gain to the defendant would be that ho will have less costs to pny. The defendant was then remanded for sentence until Saturday. Mary I-Viy was then put on trial, charged by her brother-in-law, Patrick Hannahnn, with stealing cabbage from his garden In Providence. The case was to decide whether the defendant Is sane or, not. Will lie Sent to Asylum. Dr. Lnekey was put on the stand by the defense to prove that he, with Dr. Sullivan, constituted a committee ap pointed at the Instance of the Bcranto-n Poor district. That was three years ago, and the result of the matter was thnt Miss Foy was adjudged Insane and sent to the asylum. She got out some lime ago and her relatives think she is not safe at large. P.y order of court a verdict of not guilty was taken and Miss Foy will be sent back for safe keeping to the Hillside Home. When, court adjourned the case of Robert Alexander, charged by Mrs. Deckllnlck, of the West Side, with hav ing committed an assault and battery upon her, was opened, but no testimony was taken. The verdict of the Jury In the case of Michael Pndden, charged with larceny and receiving by Cather ine McNulty, was that of not guilty. Peter Lentes fund John Hchamber were found gnHty of an assault and battery upon Catherine Huchert, and Schamber was found guilty of obstruct ing Constable Joseph Wodlkers while engaged In the execution of a legal process.

SHOWS THE CKIMEWAS K1L1TI Roschlno Had a Kuxor and Tried to Slush Snlvatorl When llo Acted as Pcaci- . maker A Number of Witnesses Heard During tho Day. Public curiosity has attained such u pitch that the main room of the court house Is not Jialf largo enough to ac commodate tho throngs that haunt tho trial of Joseph Hosehluo for the murder of Francesco Conforti. It requires all the attention and pntlence of the llp stafTs on duty at the doors to prevent the crowds from stampeding Into court from -the main corridors. Hosehluo sat ut tlu defendant's table and drunk iu every word that fell from the lips of witnesses, and whenever Judge Gunster titmice the prisoner leaned forward ns If to better liutir what the court hud to say. His tvlfa sut ut his side ami appeared more til ut ease. All who have seen lloselilno admit that he Is one of the coolest and nerviest m. n who ever sat charged with murder hi the courts of thl:i county. After court convened yesterday morn ing Antonio liuhrluiio was re-called by Mr. Horn, of counsel for the defense, for further cross-examination. The witness declared emphatically that Hosehluo hud knocked Conforti down and he denied that he had told a news paper reporter In the Dunmore lock-up the nl;;ht he was arrested that the lin t he knew about the murder of Conforti was when his wife told him. In a few minor particular!) the witness contra dicted the testimony he gave In chief. He said that he was a native of South ern Italy and came to this country nine years ago. Since then he has been a resident of a 'dace called Cooney, New York and Dunmore. "Is it not a fact," asked Mr. Horn, "Unit at the time Joe Gennello was killed In Dunmore in 1SII3, you were there and Immediately skipped out of the county and were gone for eight months; that you were in New York during that time." The iiuestiou was objected to by the commonwealth, but Judge Gunster de cided that the defense had the right to call lmbrlano's attention to the event, and find out whether subsequent to that event he did not go away. The witness said that he did go away about that time and remained In New York for four or five months. Soon After (icnncllo Was Killed. "How long was It ufter the killing of Joe Gennello that you went away from Scranton'.'" "Six or seven days." "And you did not come back until after that case was tried, did you?" "The trial was over when I came back." His wife and children were not with him while he was away. Before leav ing for New York he was employed as a section hand on the Erie and Wyoming Valley railroad, and during the time lie was in the metropolis he only worked one month. Roschlno denied that he was the owner of a revolver at the time of -the murder. He said he sold It the May previous. George E. Storner, a photographer of the West Side, testified that views he took of the scene of the murder were correct. Rocco Snlvatorl, who was with Con forti at the time of the murder, was the next witness, and his evidence was of a convincing nature. It would tend to show that tho murder was cold blooded and premeditated. He said that his home Is near Dunmore and that he remembered distinctly the night of Nov. 11, 1894, when Frank Conforti was killed. About C o'clock on the night of the murder he met Joseph Roschlno, Frank Conforti nnd Antonio Imbriano near the bridge that crosses the Roaring IJrook. Conforti told him that P.oschino wanted to kill him (Con forti) for 110 cause whatever and wit ness asked Bobchlno why he made such threats. Then while I was asking him that," continued Salvatori, "I laid my hand on his coat sleeve nnd he tried to cut my neck. I mafle a dive for his razor and he cut my finger. Then we re mained together, me and Conforti and Imbriano, and Ronehlno went ahead nnd hid himself In the bushes." "Was your hand cut with the razor?" "Yes, sir." "Go ahead from that point." "Then we began to walk and when we wnUied about twenty steps John Myran, Louis Valvano and Frank Chlprlanno came up to us. I walked a little way with Conforti, who was wondering about his hat, which had been knocked In the stream bv P.osehino. Then I went a little farther with him and bid him good night. After going two or three steps from him I stopped to take a f l:tv of tobacco and I saw somebody tiro shots from the bush." Ilosehlno fired tho Shots. "Who was It?" "Roschlno. Just then I saw Frank Conforti drop on tin: ground and he cried 'Virgin, Mary I am kllledl' " "How was Frank Conforti standing when he was shot?" "He was walking and when ho heard the noise of the leaves ha turned to see what was In tile bush and Just then he was shot." "Do you Identify Hoschlno now as the intin that fired the shots?" "Yes, sir; 1 saw him with my eyes. He did not say n, word, but, after he shot, he stepped from there. He fired two shots nt Conforti, and after he got out of the bush he mude two or three steps and fired three shots nt me and John Myran. Then I ran to ConfortTs house to tell his wife, but she was not In." The witness was then turned over to Mr. Horn for cross-examination. "Did you ever tell Frank Rossa that It was Hoschlno and Imbriano that killed Conforti?" asked Mr. Horn. "No, sir; I was shivering-and I didn't know what I was saying to them."- "Did you, while you were In the coun ty Jail, say you didn't know who It was that shot Frank Conforti?" "No, sir." J. O. Westcott was the next witness called by th'e commonwealth. He Is a special police oftlr of Forest City, lie arrested Hoschlno on Nov. 24, 1894, at Rlehmondale, and took him to the coun ty Jail In this city. Raphael Tredescall told him the day before the arrest that Roschlno wanted to give himself up, but would like to be protected by an officer At this point court adjourned for the noon recess. The -first witness called during the afternonn was Mary Berlanno, of Car bondale. She Is acquainted with Jo seph Roschlno and saw him In Carbon dale the day after the murder. Me ar rived at her house about 11 o'clock at night and remained until 9 o'clock the next morning, when he said he waB go- Ingwlth Raphael Tredescall to ForeBt City. Felix Serlannl, the woman's hUB band, was called and corroborated her story. Michael Bacosa, of Rlehmondale, said that Boschlno came to his house the second day after the murder and told him he left Dunmore because they were trying to put the blame for the killing of Frank Conforti on him. Boschlno re muined at Bacosa's house a week. John Balvanno, of Rlehmondale, als-j swore that he saw Hoschlno at that place ' two days after the murder at Dumore. He remained In Bacosa's house nine or ten days, but kept In tho houHe all the time. Coroner Kelley was recalled and said that In his opinion It was possible for a person shot through the heart, in the way Conforti was, to utter the words, "Virgin Mary, I am killed." W. J. Maxey, Justice of the peace of Forest City, testified to receiving In formation from Raphael Tredescall that Roschlno would give himself up. Patrick Flnnerty, of Dunmore, was called and said that on the night of Nov. 11 he was standing on the Dela ware, Lackawanna and Western rail road bridge, at No. 6, when the last three shots were fired. As he was ap proaching the bridge the llrst two shots were fired. He could not see when the first two shots were fired, but the last three were fired by someone standing olose to the path that leads to the Erie and Wyoming railroad. He could Bee the flashes of the revolver and the form of a man standing close to the path, us if holding a revolver hi his hand. Groans of pain, as If some one was Injured, followed the shots, und then the form of the man disappeared In tne bushes. The form reappeared u moment luter on the embankment of the Delaware, Luckuwanua and West- ern railroad, on whleh he was walking. Hie man had a revolver In his hand and walked across the Delaware, LucKawamia nnd Western tracks toward the Dunmore turnpike, but hesitated ut the second track and went up the railroad ahead of the witness instead of tnking to the turnpike. How was the man dressed. If vou re- member?" asked Mr. Jones. "In re gain to -his dress, us near as I could get at It, the clothing w'us of a dark color. The maw wore a slouch hut ine features I couldn't tell, nothing more than the man that passed me had a moustuche. I could not be positive as to the features." Other Witnesses Heard. Ltllgo Bolvauo was the next witness sworn. He lives in Bunker Hill and was ut home when the murder was committed, but he had previously been in tne company of Hoschlno and Con fortl. 1 here were others present also. Bolvauo went home and he was not more than a few minutes In his house when he heard shots fired. There were four or five shots, but he did not know who fired them. He was willing to give it as his opinion that Boschlno fired the shots, but the attorneys for the defense put u quick stop to his speech. On cross-examination he made a val uable witness for the defense in glvng his testimony regarding the position of Confortl's body as it lay on the ground after the shooting. He first pointed out on the map the spot where the murder was committed and then went on to tell about the state of Confortl's cloth ing. The dead man's coat, he said, was thrown up over his head and the onus were half drawn out of Wie sleeves, thereby Indicating that there had been a struggle between Conforti and some one else. Frank Clprlo.no was the next witness. He was with Conforti. Rocco Salvatore, Tony Imbriano and Boschlno three or four minutes previous to the shooting. tie walked toward -home and was startled by hearing first two shots and then three shots about two minutes afterward. He ran back toward the wagon road and was told by John Miranno that Conforti was killed. He went back to where the body laid and there were seven or eight persons gatli ered around. The body was on Us back and the coat was half pulled off. Joseph Dl Leo was culled as a wit ness. He was at home when Conforti was killed. Hp left his house nt twenty minutes past 6 o'clock and Frank Ciprlano met him on the road. They went down to where the murder was committed and saw Conforti standing: near the stump that marks the spot where his body was found later. Con forti had been with Boschlno, Salva tore, Imbriano and Bolvauo, and he left thc-m and started up the hill through the path. The witness did not remnin because there looked to be signs of i quarrel among ithe (men. In, a foy minutes he heard shots, but could not swear who fired them. All he knew was that Conforti was murdered, but by whom he could not swear. He was cross-examined at length by Mr. Horn regarding the location of the ground nnd the position of the body as it was found after the shots were heard. At this stage court adjourned nnd Judge Gunster handed down an orde upon the consent of attorneys for both sides, allowing Barber W. F. O'Brien to shave the Jurors.
