THE HENDRICKS CASE.
Ills Counsel Aro Confident llo Will ,Do
Another lnrpe crowd sweltered In the
close atmosphere of the court house
yesterday to hear the evidence In the
case of Hendricks, one of the nll'wd
murderers of Rttrney Hoick. The At
torneys for the defense lire now more
hopeful than ever of the acquittal of
their client. The evidence of Wisher,
one of the other accused, on Monday,
has been so fully corroborated by re
putable witnesses that nn ixlii-1 no far as
ho Is concerned appenrs to he estab
lished. 'While thU does not touch the
question of Hendricks' guilt, It noes fat
to break down the theory of the pros
ecution. Fisher has been pointed to
ns the mnn who went to Uainey Hoick-
house" and lured him to his death In
tho railroad company's freight yard.
Fisher has proven beyond a hip stlon
that he was not in Vllkes-Hanv utt'.l
In the evening, and that he was sonv
whero else at the time Helck was lur-d
to his death .In n iseneral way thin
Fisher alibi will help HemJrlcks.
A great number of witnesses were
called by the defense yesterday, all of
whom testified either in corroboration
of Fisher's alibi, story or were used to
Impeach the reliability of the more im
portant witnesses for tho prosecution.
Michael Kearney, another of the de
fendants, was placed on the stand yes
terday, and he also told a story which,
If corroborated, will establish an alibi
In his case. Things yesterday looked
decidedly more hopeful for Hendricks.
The case for the defense has certainly
been handled with a good deal of clever
ness by the three young attorneys, and
they are receiving a good deal of prais
for what they are doing in a profes
THE QUAY COUNTY KILL.
Final Action In the Legislators Todav.
Interest in the Vote.
The announcement that the honre of
representatives at Harrisburg will to
day finally dispose of the measure
known as the Quay county bill excites
a good deal of interest in Wilkes-Uarre.
fcut not half so much as nt Hazleton.
The bill, as will be remembered, failed
to command the constitutional majority
on final passage, but the action of the
house was re-considered in or-ler that
another vote might be taken when none
of the members were unavoidably ab
sent from their seats. On the previous
vote the supporters of th:? bill were
short eleven, and some far was ex
pressed here yesterday that the new
countyltes may have bcTi aMe to secure
the requisite number and today pass the
bill. The Hazletonians have been very
active and a strong delegation Is now
at the state capital working for the suc
cess of their pet bill. What measure of
euccess has attended their labors will
be known when the vote Is announced.
Assurances were received In this city
yesterday from supposed well-informed
ources at the state capital that the bill
cannot possibly command more votes
than It received before when it failed.
These reports have quieted apprehen
sion here, still there are many timid
ones who fear that the Quay county
boomers from Hazleton have been doing
something reckless and that the bill
may pass. There would be such wall
ing and gnashing of teeth, if the bill
should pass, as has not been heard in
Wllkes-Barre since the announcement
came some years ago that the Lacka
wanna county bill had passed. Wllkes
Barre groans with anguish every time
ehe gives birth to a new county.
THE LOCAL CONTRACTORS.
They Complain Thnt They Have Not Had
a Fair Chance
There are In this city a number of
contractors and builders who claim to
be able to do as good work and on as
extensive a scale as men elsewhere In
he same line of business. Home of
them allege that Architect Myers Is
standing In wfth contractors from other
cities and that these will be allowed
advantage over local competitors In
bidding for contracts on the new court
house. How much or how little foun
dation, there la for such suspicions Is
wholly conjectural. Popular prejudice
against Architect .Myers and the coun
ty commissioners is so pronounced that
doubtless Injustice Is done them In
many Instances. There Is an over
whelming demand thait If the new court
house Is to be built, Luzerne county
men shall have at least an equal
chance with outsiders to secure con
tracts for work on tt. If outsiders
Khali, In a fair contest, underbid local
contractors, there will be no JuBt cause
fcSr complaint. If the new court house
Is built the people of Luzerne county
will have to pay for It and It will be
In the Interest of all that as much of
the money as possible be retained In
the community. Olve the local con
tractors a chance!
The County Clinlrmnnshlp.
But Chairman Robinson says he hns
no Intention of resigning. Did not the
Wllkes-Barre correspondent of Tho
Tribune read Air. Koblnson's denial of
the resignation story some time ago?
Probably The Tribune man knows of
a plot to force the genial "Bob" out of
the place. News-Dealer.
The Wllkes-Barre correspondent of
Tho Tribune knows nothing about the
resignation of Chairman Robinson, nor
of any "plot to forrie the genial 'Bob'
out of the place." Under the rules of
the Republican party of .Luzerne the
term of the chairman of the county
committee expires by limitation annual
ly. .When a county convention has
been held the candidates nominated
meet and Select the chairman whom
they desire to conduct the campaign.
This system has worked well and Is a
good one. The candidates are most di
rectly Interested In the conduct of the
campaign, and It is right they should
Rieci me man ior xne cnairmaiisiiip.
lerfSherlff Robinson has made an excel-
Btatedl,!rman' Some t,me e " was
that hmi, PPParfintIy &ood authority
nad W desire to conduct an
other campaign. When the proper time
conies to select the chairman the candi
dates on the ticket will say whom they
desire for that responsible position.
Perhaps they will request Chairman
Robinson to servo once more. That will
be the proper time for him to accept or
decline. There Is no occasion for a
resignation. If lie were to resign now
his successor could not bo chosen at
this time. This talk about a "plot" to
force Mr. llohlnson out of tho place Is
the veriest nonsense. The News-Penler
seems to have forgotten under whiil
system the chairman of the Republican
county committee is selectvd In Luzerne.
MAYOR NICHOLS' METHODS.
llo Is Criticised for Making nn Attempt
to Stump Out nn I II.
Probably nearly every mayor Wllkes
Ilnrre has ever had has made more or
Icfs effort to nhollsh the bowdy house
that evil which nllllcls every city in the
world, ami of which Wllkes-Unrre hns,
possibly, a little more than its due pro
portion. No mayor of any city of con
siderable size lias ever yet stamped out
or even materially diminished this evil.
Mayor Nichols is an earnest and doubt
less a conscientious man. He has here
tofore made things uncomfortable for
the keepers of bawdy houses, but he has
not, apparently, succeeded In reducing
the number of such houses. Recently
he has adopted a s,imewnat novel policy
of dealing with such places. Instead of
organizing a police raid on them In the
d-ad hour of the night, ho simply noti
fies the keepers of such houses to ap
pear before him at a stated hour and
then Imposes a heavy tine and costs on
them, at the same time warning them
to abandon their lawless occupation.
If the mayor should do this at regular
Intervals, sav once a week, his plan of
operation might be more effective than
raiding the houses and binding- the
keepers over for appearance at court.
The new policy ndopted by the mayor
will be watched with a good deal of In
terest. If it sb.ou.ld prove a success oth-,
er mayors will probably adopt It. Mayor
Nichols Is particularly desirous of
breaking up those bawdy houses that
h ive been flourishing In localities where
respectable, people reside and are out
raged by their disreputable neighbors.
The mayor does not deserve the ad
verse criticism to which he is subjected.
He is dealing with a troublesome
problem and doing the best he can.
