After Attorney Horn finished w'th
thein. Attorney L. P. Wod?man, of
F 'tcs!City, addressed the Jury in o;:n
Inu for the defense.
He ingeniously argued to the Juty 'in
f.ivor of the murderer an 1 roinpli-w-ui-il
them several tim-s on their in
telligence. Boscliino, he si, Id. was born
la Salerno. Italy, thirty-thre-; years
ti'o. and came to America in 1SSH. Mr.
Wldomain then went on to tell the jury
that it was not P.osi hino who com
mitted the murder, but some other per
son. Judge Gunster allowed the de
fense to start out with putting charac
ter wit'.tsses on the ,tand, in order to
aecorr . inodate several Forest City busi
ness men who wen; subpoenaed.
Thomas Drown, engaged in the mer
cantile business on South Main street,
Foivst City, was the lirst cliaract -r
witness examined. He knew I'.osrhimi
seven years when he lived In that town
and from the speech of the people the
murderer was always looked upon as
a peaceable, law-abiding citizen. Mr.
lirown had never heard anything
against him. John F. (iallagher also
lives in Forest City. For the past
eight or nine years he has been em
ployed as outside foreman nt the Forest
City colliery. He has known Hoschlno
for seven years, who worked under him
as fireman and watchman. After
fifjschliitt committed the murder- at
Dun more, Mr. (Iallagher heard several

people comment on the crime and won
der why a main who was looked upon
as such a peaceable citizen should be
guilty of such a crime.
Certificates of (h. under.
T. J. Pentecost, a Forest City mer
chant, knew Hoschlno for several years.
Mr. i'entecost was at one time deputy
postmaster and afterward a Justice of
the peace. He never heard a word
against Hoschlno. District Attorney
Jones cross-examined the witness and
asked how It was that the name of
Iloschhio hud been brought up for dis
cussion. Mr. I'entecost said that there
were only a few Italian citizens at that
time In Forest City, and among them
lloschlno was regarded ns "a per
Dr. W. It. Dickson, of Forest City,
knew Hoschlno and treated him once
when he had an injured hand. The
murderer lived In one of Dr. Dickson's
houses as a tenant and always com
ported himself as a peaceable Inhabit
ant. J. D. Caryl, who now conducts a
restaurant in this city, used to be a
foreman of the Itlllsldo Coal and Iron
company. He knew Hoschlno there
and always regarded him as a peace
able, law-abiding ctlzen.
Justice of the Pence W. J. Maxey
never heard anything for or against
the character of Hoschlno. J. It. Flcm
Ir g for the pnst six years has conduct
ed a hotel at Forest City. From the
speech of the people Hoschlno was re
garded ns a good citizen. Mr. Jones
asked the witness If he ever heard that
Hoschlno was compelled to flee from
Italy because of killing a man. The
witness replied negatively. Mr. Jones
asked If he ever heard or read that
Hoschlno had almost murdered a man
In Dun more six or eight months ago
who was talking about Hoschlno's wife.
The witness read about the latter cir
cumstance. Others Wbo Knew Him.
WV J, Davis keeps a clothing store In
Forest City and Hoschlno used to buy
goods from lilm when he lived there.
The witness found him always honest
and never heard any unfavorable com
ment on Roschino's character. Q. W.

James (1. Walker Is -bookkeeper for
the Hillside Coal ami Iron company und
has been for four years, lie had heard
Hosohino's reputation discussed ill the
coal office, but It was after the murder
was committed. He did not know any
thing about the murderer's repututlon
for peace and quiet at Dunmore..
Constable J. II. Westcott, who ap
prehended Hoschlno, was a witness for
the commonwealth the day before, and
he was re-called to give the prisoner
a good character. Howard Johns, man
ager of a store at Forest City, never
heard aught in favor of Hoschlno's
charaoler nor anything against I'..
Mich at J Havoso, another witness for
the commonwealth, was re-called and
ns far as he ever knew or heard Hos
chlno was always regarded as a good
citizen. Ho read In the newspapers
about the murderous attack Hoschlno
made six or seven months ago on Joseph
Clanello at Dunmore, but he never
heard that Hoschlno was obliged to dig
out of Italy to escape the penalty of a
murder he committed 'lliere. John I '.ni
valin Will re-called and swore that
Hoschlno bad to his knowledge been re
garded as a peaceable and law-abiding
"What Is your own reputation, John,
as a peaceable and law-abiding cit
izen?" asked District Attorney Jones;
and the witness only grinned in reply.
I'olvnno Didn't Know,
Joseph I'.olvano gave (Uttering testi
mony of Hoschlno's reputation. Mr.
Jones asked him if ho knew whether or
not the murderer had Jieen ill the habit
of carrying a revolver or a stiletto. "Me.
I ilunno," said Joseph. County Sur
veyor A. H. Dunning, Jr., was called by
the defense to explain certain features
of the map of the ground where the
murder was committed.
Frank Ciprlano was called to tell
what a go.nl man Hoschlno was always
regarded us before he did the shooting.
Michael i'letivllo was the lirst witness
who was called to give testimony out
side of that followed by the precedln;v
It was offered to prove by him that
Sal va tore, when he went to Pictrello's
house the night' of the murder, staled
that Tony l inbriano and Joe l'.o:chino
had niurdotvd Coiifortl. District Attor
ney Jones objected and then Salvatore
was called to the stand. Mr. Ward
asked him: "Did you say to Pi et reiki
on the night of the murder that the
killing was done by Imbriauo and
Hoschlno?" The witness answered, "1
do not remember having said that, I
was trembling and I don't know
whether 1 said that or not."
l'ietrello wan then re-called and he
sv.ore that when Salvutorl came to his
house at 7 o'clock on the night of the
murder he said that it was linbriano
and Hoschitio who had killed Conforti.
Pietrelli) did not hear any shots because
he had gone to bed. Frank l'ietrello
and Lucauo Costulonna were listening
to Salvatori say that Imbriauo and
Hoscliino had killed Conforti. Salvatori
was cut on the linger and blood was
running from It. Salvatori was shiver
ing and terribly excited. At this point
.MINOR COURT CASES.
Two Defendants Admitted Their Guilt
ond Others Went before Juries.
The progress of the murder trial does
nut appear to hamper the other cases
on the list.
James Holand came forward und
pleaded guilty. Two indictments wore
p-mllng against him. Constable
Joseph Pool was prosecuting him for
aggravated assault and. battery and
resisting an officer in the execution of
a legal process. In the lirst case L

the hitter mu' month In the county jail
In the other court room, before Judge
Kd wards, the assault and battery case
of Mrs. Lena Deckiluick against Hub
ert Alexander was resumed. It was
the ordinary stripe of a neighbors'
quarrel and the jury found the defend
ant not guilty, ordered Mrs. Deckllnick
to pay two-thirds of the costs and the
I ynians in Trouble Again.
If Michael Lyman or his wife, Mary,
were not present at every term of
criminal court us prosecutor, defend
ant, or witness, the court calendar
would not seem properly made up.
They live at Austin Heights. Yester
day Michael was put on trial on the
charge of having committed nil as
sault and battery upon Mrs. W. II.
MeColluin, n neighbor.
An unclean beast, a pig, was the
primary cause of the trouble. The ani

On one of these visits the pig returned

crowded house which assembled de
spite the bleak and boisterous weather.
The representatives of the various fea
tures included Iu last evening's pro
gramme were on their best In earning
the plaudits of the house. -The
May Pole dance, typical of the
great old Fngllsh custom, was regarded
as one of the greatest successes of thu
evening, the graceful manner lu which
the young ladies tripped about the em
blematical pole being truly charming.
Caledonians cheered their represen
tatives In their usual lusty manner
when the laddies ami lassies appeared

James Moir danced the Highland lliug

lady of fourteen years of age. Alex
