K BOSCRENO TESTIFIES
Sbc Exonerates Her ' Husband from
the Charge Against Him.
HER EVIDENCE CORROBORATED
She Says Ho Was at Uotne five Minutes
Before tha Fatal Shots Wore Fired.
The Storm Interfered with Presence
of Witnesses for the Defense.
Storms eometlmes cause tho- ma
chinery of the law to cease for a time
nnd that was the case yesterday In the
liuschlno murder trlnl on account of the
non-appoaranco of storm beaten wit
nesses for tho defense.
Frank rietrello wus the first witness
on the stand In the morning. Rocco
SalvatoH euld in his presence that tho
murder of Frank Confortl was commit
ted by Joseph Boschlno and Antonio
Imbriano. Salvatorl wanted the wit
ness to go for the Dunmore police for
the purpose of having the two men ar
rested for their crime; but the witness
thought it was none of his business,
rietrello took County Surveyor Dun
nlng's map of 'the ground where the
murder was done nnd he pointed out
relatively itho positions of Salvatorl's
and Confortl's houses.
Charles K Daniels, of the Truth, was
sworn In connection with an Interview
ho had with Imbriano In the Dunmore
station house the morning after the
murder. The substance of the Inter
view was as follows: Imbriano said
that on tho night of the murder, in com
pany with Confortl, he was on his way
home and they parted at the path on
the wagon road. Having gone a short
distance after leaving Confortl Im
briano heard a shot and was startled
but he did not stop to investigate. When
he got home the news of the murder
had preceded him nnd his wife told him
that Boschlno had murdered Confortl.
District Attorney Jones cross-examined
Mr. Daniels. The next witness
was Frank Rossi, nn excitable man and
very impassioned in his speech. As he
spoke 'to the interpreter his coal black
eyes shot out flashes of fire and his
gesticulations were quick and his
Rocco Salvatorl came to his house on
the evening of the murder about 6.30
o'clock and informed him that Confortl
had been killed. "Telia me who kllla
Confortl or me kllla you," said Rossi to
Salvatorl. Then the latter told that the
murder of Confortl had been done by
Joseph Boschlno and Antonio Imbriano,
both equally guilty. . .
Storm Obstructed Justice.
Frank Pictrello was re-called to tell
about whom he Baw search the clothes
of Confortl as he laid murdered on the
road. Squire Robert Scott, the witness
said, was the Individual who performed
the act. Another witness was called
and a funny looking, Rip Van Winkle
like chap mado his appearance, but he
was not the right man. The attorneys
for the defense stated to Judge Gunster
that no more of their witnesses were
present, their absence being due, no
douUt, to the severity of the storm.
Mr. Horn asked the court to adjourn
until the afternoon, promising that the
witnesses would be on hand then. And
the attorneys for the defense also prom
ised to work during the recess upon
the preparation of law points. It was
along toward 10.30 o'clock and court
adjourned till 1.30 p. m.
Domlnloo Morazl was called to the
witness box when the case was resumed
In tho afternon. He was put through
u rigid cross-questioning by District
Attorney Jones as to his recollection of
what Rocco Salvatorl said to him on
the evening of the murder. Salvatorl
made It his business, it appears, to go
around on that evening telling that
Confortl was murdered by Boschlno and
Imbriano. Morazl heard Salvatorl use
such an expression and with hard work
the district attorney got him to swear
positively that Salvatorl said so. Mr
Jones finally gat the witness to swear
that Salvatorl made that statement in
There was a hushed murmur In tha
court room when Attorney Horn cnllcd
out the name of Mrs. Jennie Boschlno.
The wife who has sat at her husband's
side all through tho trial then went on
the stand to give evidence. She was
married five years ago to Boschlno and
Is the mother of two children; hpr
mother lives with her at Bunker Hill
and helps to take enre of the children.
She remembered well the night on
which Confortl was murdered. Doml
nlco Morazl, the preceding witness, and
a man named Alexandra PIntenello
came to visit her on Sunday afternoon
They remained between the hours of 4
and 8 p. m. Her husband did not come
home until a few minutes after C o'clock,
and these men were In the house,
tier Husband Wounded.
When he came In ho showed them a
wound on his leg and blood was running
from It. She got a handkerchief and
wiped the blood away. While she was
dressing the wound she heard two
shots; the two men went to the door to
see what was the matter and they
walked off down the path toward the
wagon road. Then she heard three
more shots und ten minutes later Mor
ass I nnd PIntenello came back. They
told her husband that a large crowd
wus gathered outside and they were
saying that Boschlno and Imbriano had
killed Confortl. Boschlno wns advised
to betake himself to flight, as It meant
danger for him to remain in tho face of
tho angry mob that was growing more
violent outsldo of the house. Boschlno
"No. sir; I did not kill him and I
don't want to go."
But he was persuaded to go, and ho
left by way of the back door.
Mrs. Boschlno remembered the county
detectives' visit to her house and his
ntfklng for a picture of her husband
She did not tell the detective that she
did not know where her husband then
was. District Attorney Jones then
asked Mrs. Boschlno this question:
"If your husband was In the house at
tho time the shots were fired, why do
you suppose that the crowd was after
your husband?" The crowd was noisy
and from what the two men In the
house had said she feared that harm
would come to her husband, and ho
advised him to go for a few days. At
her urgent solicitation her husband left
In a hurry and did not even, bid his
family good-bye. He went out the back
door, disappeared in the darkness and
then she locked all the doors on the
house. Morazl and PIntenello remained
at her house until 8 o'clock and left, but
not before the crowd outside had dis
persed. tier Story Corroborated.
Alexander PIntenello took the stand.
"Aleck, where do you live?" asked Mr,
Horn, "In Hydo Park," was his an
swer. The witness described all the de
tails of the happenings at Uoschlno's
house on the Sunday ot the murder be
tween the hours ot 4 and 8 p. m. His
story was corroborative of what Mrs,
Boschlno hud testified to. Boschlno, he
said, came home that evening about
five minutes after 6 o'clock. He had
blood on his knee and his wife got
cloth to bandage it. While she was en
gaged In wiping away tho blood two re
ports of a revolver were heard. The
witness and Morazl went outside and
as soon as they had proceeded a few
yards from tho door, three other pistol
shots rang out upon the chill Novem
ber air. The witness was superlatively
positive that Boschlno had reached his
homo and was in his own house, his
wife bundaglng his knee, five minutes,
at least, before the first reports of tha
pistol were heard.
The witness and (Morazl, his com
panion, did not go as far as the spot
where tho shots were presumed to
come from, although ' they started In
that direction and meant to go there;
but on the way down the path they
heard loud curses and shoutB and they
knew that an excited mob was coming
toward them. The crowd, In which
there might have beoni anywhere from
a dozen or fifteen persons, was threat
ening vengeance on Boschlno.
The witness and his friend hastily re
turned to Bosehlno's house and told
him of his peril. They advised him to
skip, which he did after a little parley
ing. Boschlno went out tho back door
and after that Mrs. Boschlno locked all
the doors of the house. Boschlno did
nut want to go, saying IJiat he had
done nothing to be afraid of. Mr. Jones,
upon cross-examination, rattled the
witness, who sometimes was ready to
swear to almost anything.
Hint Statement of Miranno.
Vlncenzo Malozzt was the next. His
testimony was brief and related to a
supposed statement made by John
Miranno. The witness was asked if
he heard Miranno say that he (Miran
no) saw a man lire two shots Into the
bushes where Confortl's body was
found, and If he did not recognize that
man as Boschlno. The witness was not
clear on that point. Stenographer John
Tuylor was sworn; he took stenogra
phic notes of a conversation carried on
by Miranno in Justice of the Peace
Scott's oflice, in Dunmore, on Dec. SO.
He did not make a full text ot what was
said by Miranno. Glavanno Dl Paolo
was the lust witness for the day and
his testimony was in relation to the
hackneyed statement made by Salva-
tori, fastening the murder on Boschlno
Attorney Horn stated to a Tribune re
porter that the defense will close Its
case today and rest. T.he arguments of
counsel and the charge of Judge Gun
ster will be made on Monday, and will
probably take up the entire day,
TRYING LESSER OFFENSES.
Ssvcral Cases Disposed of Before Judges
Gunster and Kdwards.
Several smaller crimes were called to
account yesterday In the courts. Dur
ing the recess of the murder case In
the main court room William H. Moran
was called before Judge Gunster. Mr,
Moran's case Is a pitiable one. He was
employed as a cigar agent by W. H.
Shoop and Jntrusted with the responsl
bllity of making collections. From time
to time covering a period of two years
he fell Into the habit of using small
amounts, of his employer's money, and
in that way he became an embezzler in
the sum of about $150.
He was not a spendthrift, on the con
trary he Is said to have used his money
to support his wife and family. He de
luded himself into the belief that he
would be able to repay the money with
out being discovered. He plead guilty
and ex-Dlstrlct Attorney Kelly made
an eloquent plea for Judicial clemency.
Judge Gunster sentenced Mr. Moran to
a fine of $1. costs, restitution of the
money embezzled and three months in
the county Jail.
The case of Arthur Frothlngham
against John R. Reese, on the charge
of destroying show bills, was called be
fore Judge Gunster and a. jury sworn
The prosecutor did not appear and by
the direction of the court the costs were
placed upon him and a verdict of not
Judge Edwards, presiding In No. 2,
resumed the trial of William Ready and
John Brogan, who robbed Hotel Keeper
Ward, of Wlnton. Two cases were
against them; one for stealing $150 from
Mr. Ward, and one for stealing a gold
watch worth $5, and $3.75 In cash from
the clothes of another boarder, Patrick
McKenna. They offered no defence and
the Jury brought in verdicts of guilty
In both Instances. Brogan was found
guilty of larceny in each cuse, and
Ready of receiving.
Two enterprising young chicken
thieves from Newton, Charles Searles
and John Vundusand, had no counsel
to defend them when their case was
culled. They, verily, reached the con
clusion that no lawyer could save them
and it would only be a waste of money
to procure legal services.
Tho defendants started out as whole
sale chicken thieves; they bought a
team of horses and a covered wagon
and made nocturnal calls at the chick-
erles of the farmers up the country.
The finger of suspicion pointed to them
and in a very novel manner they were
captured. A blacksmith of Newton
nailed a peculiarly shaped shoe on the
hind foot of one of the horses. One
dark night a visit was made to the hen
nery of George Barton, of Newton, and
every feathered inhabitant of the roost
Tho I'lun Was Successful.
The next morning Mr. Barton noticed
the Imprints of the telltale shoe at a
suggestive proximity to his looted
chicken coop. He drove to Scranton
and learned that the young men had
disposed ot a wagon loud of poultry In
this city and he identified some of the
birds as his own. The defendants had
no defense to amount to a grain of
chaff and the Jury returned with a
verdict of guilty.
The last case for the week was next
called, that of the commonwealth
against Constable J. S. Miller, of the
Eighth ward. George S. Brock was the
prosecutor, Mr. Brock had dealings
with Saloon-keeper K. J. Fallon, of
Old Forge, amounting to $41. He se
cured a Judgment before Alderman C.
M. Doling and placed the paper in
Constable Miller's hands for collection
Miller collected the money, but he re
fused to turn It over to Brock, hence
The defense was that Brock owned
the defendant more than $41 and that
he agreed Miller should keep the
amount of the judgment and give him
credit on his account. Judge Edwards
placed the case In the Jury's hands at
adiournment. All other cases on the
list, having been tried, settled, or con
tlnued, the Jurors not engaged In the
murder trial and the one Just men
tioned were discharged from further
attendance at this term of court. This
Jury will return its verdict this morn

Yesterday's blizzard caused more
damage and was more severe than any
snow storm which has visited this city
or section since the memorable nnd dis
astrous hurricane of March, 1SS8. And
In some respects the recent storm Is
more severe than that of seven years ago
It is greater In wind, temperature and
area. Only in quantity of snow did the
1888 storm exceed the present one.
In and adjacent to this city the bliz
zard has caused a financial loss of hun
dreds of thousands of dollars which
cannot even be approximately estimat
ed for several days. 'Business has been
completely prostrated, the street car
lines, have been tied up and railroad
travl has been undisputably demoral
At midnight last night the Indications
were that the storm had spent Its fury,
nnd unless more snow falls the rail
roads will today resume schedule time,
It is not probable that the street cars
will run with any degree of regularity
until at least this afternoon.
At G o'clock last night the Traction
company management gave orders to
abandon all efforts to keep its lines
open. The big electric sweepers were
Housed and instructions given to em.
ployes to report for duty at 6 o'clock
this morning. A concentrated effort
will then be made to clear the tracks.
All of yesterday attempts were made
to run cars, but without success.
Wind t'ndid tho Work.
As rapidly as a portion of a line was
cleaned tho wind and snow combined
to prove the work fruitless and all that
was accomplished! was 'to keep the
West Side line to Main avenue open for
a few hours in tho afternoon. At pres
ent four cars are stalled on the Laurel
Hill line, three on the Moosic line and
as many between Market street and
On the Delaware, Lackawanna and
Western road no attempt was made to
run local trains. A small army of men
was pressed into service on the Pocono
and north of the city In hopes that some
sort of passenger and through freight
service might be maintained. The work
of the 400 or 500 men might as well have
been directed against a tornado. From
3 o'clock in the morning until 2 o'clock
yesterday afternoon the road for twen
ty-nve miles south of this city was com
The drifts on the Pocono ranged in
depth from a fow feet to the height of
ine smokestacks of the engines. Several
huge ploughs pushed by two engines
each and numerous gangs of shovelers
distributed along succeeded in making
the road passable last evening only be
cause the wind abated. As many as
twenty men suffered from frozen
fingers, toes or ears, and were treated
by physicians in the small towns south
of the city.
About 2.30 o'clock In the afternoon the
New York mall train due here at
o'clock yesterday morning pulled Into
the Lackawanna depot twelve hours
late. The engine was a purling study
in bluck and white and bore about us
much semblance to a cowshed as to u
fast locomotive. The train had been
seventeen hours In making the trip
from New York which ordinarily occu
pies but five hours. The backbone of
the blockade, however, had been broken
und up to an early hour this morning
nil through trains from the east arrived
from three to six hours late.
Passenger Trains Delayed.
The train due here ut 8.50 o'clock and
which left New York at 4.15 In the after
noon arrived at 10.20.
North of Scranton the trouble was
not so great, although all trains were
four or live hours overdue. Orders were
given during the day to hold all local
freight and coal trains north and south,
Only passenger and through freights
were allowed to leave the city, and the
ticket agent 'notified all purchasers that
the company would not be responsible
for distance or time.
At 8 o'clock last evening General Man
ager Hallstead gave orders to hold in
the Scranton yards sixteen carloads of
live stock consigned to New York. At
that hour the probabilities wore that
the train would be unable to get over
the Pocono within five or six hours, and
rather than expose the stock to the
mercies of tha gale at such a high alti
tude the company preferred to keep the
cars in the Scranton yards.
It was reported by railroad employes
at 10 o'clock that several heads of the
stock had succumbed to the storm and
had laid down to die or be trampled to
death by their fellows. The train was
started cast Bhortly before midnight
but it Is probable that not a few will
freeze to death before Hoboken is
Until midnight the Delaware and
Hudson com puny sold tickets only be
tween Wilkes-Barre and Carbondale.
Beyond these points travelers had to
take chances on trains which arrived
and left this city from ono to three
hours late. A special dispatch to The

On the Other Roads.
On the Jersey Central road the condi
tions were much the same. Outgoing
trains left for Wilkes-Barre only, with
the exception of the noon "flyer" for
New York, which left with the Intention
ot getting through if possible. All in
coming local trains arrived Beveral
hours late, and It was not until even
ing that passengers who left New York
a 6 o'clock a. ni. reached the city.
The Erie and Wyoming Valley train
whlcl left this city at 6.35 a. m. did not
reach Hawley until 6 o'clock last night.
During the day tratlic was abandoned

Only two deliveries of outside mails
were made by the postal carriers dur
ing the day. The first New York mail
since Thursday night arrived at 3
o'clock yesterday afternoon. From the
north and west, however, local mails
were received Irregularly during the
An attempt was made during the
morning to bury Thomas Monahan, of
Eynon street, In the Hyde Park Catho
lic cemetery. It was found that tho
road leading to the cemetery was Im
passable, und the body had to be taken
to the morgue of Undertaker Wymbs.
Few of the large manufacturing
plants or mines succeeded in conduct
ing operations. At the North works of
the Lackawanna Iron and Steel com
pany work had to be suspended on ac
count of frozen water pipes. The South
works kept operating, but the snow
was much of a hamper. None of the
mines on the South Side atcmpted at
all to operate. The outside tracks were
so deeply covered with snow that the
cars could not be run.
Very few persons living In Buburban
sections attempted to reach the central
city. Provlde-nce and Green Ridge resi
dents took advantage of the local Dela
ware and Hudson trains, und six thous
and passengers were transported on
the steam cars to and from those sec
tions. During the later hours of the
afternoon and In the evening sleighs
ran to the North End, carrying passen
gers at 25 cents per head.

Extra Performance to Do Given Monday

Many persons braved the storm yes-
ter afternoon, and evening and attended
the Klrmess performances at the
Frothlngham. A fair-sized audience
attended the matinee, and In the, even
ing the house was comfortably filled.
President Dickson, ot tho Lacka

that the Klrmess dances will be given
Monday evening, when the curtain will
rise at 7.30 o'clock. The dancers will
Include the children who have hereto
fore appeared only at the matinees.

fitelle's music store.
Yesterday afternoon an extra solo
dance wus given by tho little daughter
of Ben Pratt. The winsome little
lady did some Intricate measures very
cleverly and' won generous applause
from the delighted audience. The spe
cial event of last evening was the skirt
dance by Miss liolln.
After tho expenses of the Klrmess
are paid and tonight's performance has
ended, It is estimated that the profits
will have reached $7,000, and but for the
cold and snow which featured the
weather during the week the net pro
ceeds would have been nearly $10,000.
The proceeds will be devoted to the
benefit of that popular beneficiary, the
