THE RKICK MUKDGR.
Now Surprises Follow V.aoh Day In This
In tho entire hlntory of the criminal
courts of Luzerne county there never
has appeared a case quite so remark
able and Inexplicable as the trial of the
man Hendricks now In progress. One
not acquainted with the details of the
case mlrht sit In the court room all day,
listen patiently to the evidence as It Is
elicited, and at the close of the tiny
leave the court house without having
learned even so much as to who Is belnt;
tried. As the readers of The Tribune
are aware, four men Hendricks, Fish
er, Kearney and Hoblnson wero ar
rested for the murder of Carney Hoick,
These arrests were made more than fif
teen months after the crime was com
mitted. The case had been placed In
the hands of the Barring & MeSweeney
detective afrency. Keen detectives wero
put on the case and after much work
evidence wns secured which seom"d
clearly to point to the four men above
named. True bills were found ajrainst
them and the cases wero called for trial
at the present term of court. The pris
oners el"cted to be tried singly and Hen
dricks was put on trial. The principal
witness arm Inst the accused are the de
tectives, who have testilled that Hen
dricks again and again confessed his
active participation in the murder. A
woman at whose house Hendricks lived
at the time of the murder, swears that
he confessed himself guilty of the kill
ing of Relck, and also that the money
taken from the dead man was divided
in her presence. The defense have
from the first apparently taken very
little interest In the case of Hendricks,
the man actually on trial, but have de
voted themselves to proving alibis for
the other three accused, who are not yet
on trial. No attempt has thus far been
made to establish an alibi for Hen
dricks, counsel for the defense evidently
believing1 that If they prove the Inno
cence of Fisher, Robinson and Kearney
the case against Hendricks will also
fall to the ground.
Fisher was the first witness placed
upon the stand for the defense and a
fairly strong case was made out, his
evidence being In nearly every particu
lar corroborated by reputable witnesses.
There Is, however, a discrepancy that
leaves some doubt as to the where
abouts of Fisher at the exact hour when
the murder was committed. The father
and other members of Kearney's family
have appeared on the stand and sworn
that Kearney was at his home In Par
sons at the time Kelck was killed. Yes
terday the wife of Hoblnson was placed
on the stand and according to her testi
mony her husband could not possibly
have been In Wilkes-1 larre at tne time
of the murder.
One of the most remarkable features
of yesterday's proceedings was the
placing on the witness stand of a num
ber of prisoners confined In the county
Jail. It will be remembered that De
fective Simpson wns confined In a cell
In the county Jail (as an alleged crimi
nal) for the purpose of gaining the con
fidence of Hendricks with a view to
getting a confession from him. Simp
son testified that Hendricks made a
full confession to him. Counsel for de
fense In opening the case declared they
would prove that Hendricks knew
Simpson was a detective and that he.
was only fooling the latter. The object
in bringing the prisoners down from
the Jail was to discredit Simpson's tes
, tlmony by proving that Hendricks
knew Simpson to be a detective at the
time he made the alleged confession to
him. Great surprise was occasioned
when he f warned Hendricks that
Simpson was a detective. Hendricks
only laughed and said he knew all
about It, that the warden of the Jail
(the late C. C. Jones) had already
warned him against Simpson and tell
ing him tAs reai character and object In
being In the Jail.
Taking this case all In all It certainly
Is a very remarkable one, and few
people now look for a conviction, al
though there Is a widespread belief
that at least some. If not all of the ac
cused had a hand in the death of Bar
ney Relck. .
A YOU'G WOMAN SUICIDES.
Tho Body Found In tho Susquehanna
' A few months ago a neat looking
young' Polish woman named Frances
Itaquish reached Plymouth from her
native land. For a time she made her
home with a married sister and then
took service as a domvstlc in one of the
Plymouth hotels. There she made the
acquaintance of a yourvs Polander
named Frank Bonlrekara, and they be
came engaged, the bans 'being read In
the Lithuanian church last Sunday, the
ceremony to be solemnized in a few
weeks. On Monday last It came to her
knowledge that her lover had dlssap
. peared, and she became convinced he
had deserted her. Yesterday morning
she left her sister's house and a few
hours later her body was found lit tho
river below Plymouth. It Is undoubt
edly a case of disappointment in love,
followed by suicide.
Susquehanna and Lebanon Valloy Don
tal' Associations. ,
An Important and doubtless Interest
ing union meeting of these two pental
associations will be held at the Wyom
ing Valley House In this city on Wed
nesday and Thursday. May 22 and 23.
A large number of the most prominent
dentists ol half a dozen or more coun
ties will be in attendance. Among those
who are on the programme and will
read papers on subpects of Interest to
the profession: are 'Professor C. N.
Pierce, of Philadelphia; Dr. E. P. Kra
mer, of Lebanon; Dr. J. L. Fordham,
of .Scranton ; Dr. C. V. Kratzer, of
Reading; Dr. G. JY. Klump, of WIU
iamsport; Dr. A. Tees, of Phila
delphia; Dr. F. L. Holllster, of Wllkes
Barre, and Dr. J. C. Hertz, of Easton.
Dr. C. 6. Beclt, of Wilkes-Barre, will
deliver an address of welcome at the
opening of the first session, at 10 o'clock
on Wedhesday morning, Mr. 22, and tho
local dentists are making every prep
aration to moke the visit ofjtheir
brethren pleasant and profitable. Dr.
O. Hickman, of Reading, Is the presl
dent of the Lebanon Valley Dental so
clety, and Dr. F. J. Kingsley, of To
wanda, holds the like position In the
Susquehanna Valley association.
SHADOWING MAIL CARRIERS.
ft Is a Schcnto to Remove Old Carriers to
Make Room for Democrats.
It appears that for some time a num
ber of inspectors, or detectives, or spe
cial agents, connected with the post
ofllce department have been in this city
quietly watching the letter carriers to
ascertain whether or not they perform
their duties faithfully and elliclently.
Postmaster Landmesserhlmself was not
aware of the presence of those officials
and does not know officially what their
mission is. If any of the letter carriers
have been remiss, ir neglectful, or seen
entering saloons, they will be likely to
hear from the department. Some be-
lleve this to be a scheme having for its
object the removal of some of the old
carriers to make room for Democrats,
but this does not look altogether rea
sonable. The Wilkes-Barre postoltlce
has for years been managed more near
ly on a non-partisan basis than prob
ably any other office In the state. Of
the entire body of employes Just one
half are Republicans and tho other half
Democrats. Postmaster Landmesser
himself, while an ardent Republican In
former years, has hold himself entirely
aloof from participation In active poll-
tics since his appointment as postmas
ter. The force of clerks and carriers
connected with the Wilkes-Harre office
Is probably as efficient as It would be
possible to mnke it. It would Be a very
rreat surprise If tho inspectors Fhould
find good grounds on which to base
ohnrges against any of the carriers.
This system of Rpylng is not to be com
mended, and so far ns known has not
been resorted to until recently. There
are other nnd more commendable ways
of ascertaining whether or not employes
perform their duties faithfully.
Traction Company Extension.
That portion of the city of Wllkes-
r.arre familiarly known as Brewery
Hill is about to be supplied with the
convenience of street car service. Tho
Traction company has a force of men
at work laying track. When the line
is completed the cars will run up North
ampton street to Hillside, thence down
Market to Welles streets, nnd finally
around to the square. This line will
be of the greatest convenience to the
large population in an Important and
growing section of tho city, and will pay
well. It Is the only section of the city
that has not heretofore been Invaded
by the trolley cars.
They Will Have a Chance.
Architect Myers has made public an
nouncement that every opportunity will
be gl;en all contractors who desire to
make bids for contracts In the new
court house to examine the plans. He
says there need le no hurry about It,
and In that respect he Is correct. Under
a recent act of assembly the plans will
have to be approved by the court before
anything can be done. The three Judges
Itice, Woodward and Lynch will be
In no hurry to npprove plans which are
up to this time endorsed only by the
county commissioners nnd Architect
A Broken Arm. ,
A boy name'! Herger, .itout 10 years
of age, was racing and chasing around
the court house square with another
lad of about the same age on Tuesday
evening, when the Berger boy In some
way fell and struck one of his nrms
heavily against the croplng, breaking
the bone near the elbow. His cries of
pain and distress brought a crowd to
the spot in short order. The Injured
boy was taken to his home and a sur
geon sent for, who set the broken limb.
Passed a I'nd Check.
A man named Fred Henny gave
Frank Babh a worthless check In pay
ment of a bill of goods. The check was
for $30 and proved to be no good. Then
Babb had Henny arrested nnd ar
raigned before 'Squire Davison. Hen
ny concluded the cheaper plan would be
to pay Babb $30 In good money, settle
the costs with the alderman and say
no more nbout It. That Is what Fred
did and was promptly discharged, all
hands being satisfied.
Ilnd Faith in tho Baldwins.
When the Baldwins were giving en
tertainments In this city some months
ago, the adopted son of Dr. Spayd
asked Mrs. Baldwin where his father
was. The answer was that he was In
Monterey, Mexico. Since then the boy
has run away from his home with Dr.
Spayd, and It is supposed he Is on his
way to Mexico to hunt up his father.
Not Very Expensive.
The county commissioners have Just
settled with the Eastern penitentiary
officials for keeping and feeding Lu
zerne county criminals. The bill
amounted to only $2,884.18, which Is
certainly not a very exorbitant' bill
considering the large number of prison
ers constantly sent to the penitentiary
from this county. ,
