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,

Hannahnn, with stealing cabbage from

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
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
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
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
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 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.

Last night the dances were given with
greater vim and precision than on
either of the preceding' nights. The
dancers ure becoming accustomed to

and consequently their movements are
more natural and graceful.
The evening's performance opened
with the pretty tableau, "A Pardon in
Brittany," which was followed by the
Breton Peasant dance, during which
Miss Grace Silkman gave the Shadow
dance. She Is a lithe, graceful young

When the advertising atmosphere is so
heavily charged with exaggeration, it
is well to remember vbo the honest
advertisers are. Windy assertions about
GREAT reductions-'-advertising goods
at impossible prices, find no lodging
place in the minds of intelligent people.
Dull trade throughout the legitimate
business season may male necessary.
wild statements from some clothiers to
attract trade, but the schemers will
have to scheme harder and find new
disguises for their lame excuses before
they can stop the people from coming
to this store for honest values. The
triumph of this store is the triumph of
intelligence, and you have made it so.
Trade has been up to the mark here.
