THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE FRIDAY MOIININGK . MAY, . 10, 1895.
Odr Neighbors Douto the lalley.
holly & Wallace
The Tribune has opened a branch of
fice at No. 29, Lannlng building, Public
Square, Wllkes-flarre. for the transaction
of business. The publishers propose to
extend the circulation of The Tribune In
Wllkes-Barre and the surrounding towns,
and to that end will present a very com
plete department of Luzerne county news.
For success In thli" undertaking depend
ence Is placed solely upon the superiority
of The Tribune as a purveyor of all the
news of the day domestic, foreign, local,
commercial and financial. The general In
terests of the people of Wllkes-Harre and
the Wyoming valley will have In The Trib
une nn earnest advocate, odltor.ially and
otherwise. It Is the purpose of the pub
lishers to Issue a newspaper ns valuablo
to the general public as the metropolitan
dallies, nnd deliver It to the people
throughout northeastern Pennsylvania
from three to live hours earlier than the
lJhllad"lphla and New York papers can
SAY THEY WILL BUILD.
Out Have No Idea Wlicro to Locato the
One of the county commissioners was
very talkative yesterday. Heing asked
as to the plans and purposes of the com
missioners with reference to the pro
posed new court house, he delivered
himself something as follows: '"Why,
yes, of course we are going to build the
new court house. The plans are ready
and the Judges will naturally approve
them. All our Judges want u new court
house and they want a fine one. Well,
no, we can't sny exaxctly where we nre
going to build because no site has yet
been, determined! jupon, but we will
build somewhere. If we cannot get
the river bank site we can build up
there near the Jail, on the properly
owned by the county. Yes, I under
stand there are some lawyers and oth
ers who propose to blork the new court
house with Injunctions, but I guer.s
that won't amount to much. The flrnt
choice of the commissioners was the
South 'Main street site, but you know
we were not allowed to have our own
way. Our second choice was the River
street site, but If the city will not let
us have that why then we must look
elsewhere, and naturally the Jail site
comes next, and there is where we will
build If we are compelled to. Hut we
are going to build somewhere, and don't
you forget It. Architect Myers Is all
right, and his plans are all right. All
the people of Luzerne county will be
proud of the new court house when It
is erected, and they will some day
thank the present board of commis
sioners for what they are doing nnd
propose to do. Just as soon as the
question of location Is settled we will
put on our hustling clothes and push
things. Before we go out of office this
work will be pretty well along. We'll
show you a court house by the side of
which the Lackawanna building will
look mean and Insignificant."
"But what if the court does not ap
prove of the plans?" was suggested.
"Oh, the Judges are going to approve
them. They want a new court house
Just as much as we do, and will push
the thing along: and I want to say
right here that the local contractors
are not going to bo shut out of the com
petition for c.ontracts on the new bulld
'Ing. They will have a square deal and
a chance to win."
Home for homeless h omes.
Ono of Wilkos-llnrrc's Latest Charitable
Several years ago a number of ladies
of this city conceived the Idea of es
tablishing a home for homeless old wo
men. A board of very nctlve managers
took the matter In hand and In an In
credibly short Bnace of time an Institu
tion has been established that Is be
coming a source of much Interest and
local pride to the people generally. A
handsome and commodious building
has been erected and furnished on
Carey avenue, and Is very nearly paid
for by contributions from all classes of
people. The home Is open to Inmates
from any part of Luzerne county, who
can comply with the conditions Inci
dent to admission. The popular desig
nation of this Institution is "The Old
Ladles' Home," although Its charter
title Is Home for Homeless Women. On
Friday, May 1,7, the managers of the
home propose giving a strawberry nnd
Ice cream festival from 2 to 10 p. m. A
musical programme has also been pro
vided for the occasion, and the event
will undoubtedly be one of great enjoy
tnertt to the visitors ns well as to the
Inmates. The proceeds of the festival
will go Into the Home fund, and a help
ful sum should be realized.
A Very Ilnd Street.
Probably the worst street to travel
over In the city of Wllkes-Barre Is
South Main, from South to Hanover
streets. Years ago this street was
paved with cobbles and it Is now as
thoroughly out of repair as It Is possi
ble for a street to be. The Traction
company has double-tracked It much
of the distance. . This street Is the nat
ural thoroughfare between the Public
Square, South Wllkes-Barre and Nantl
coke, but It Is almost entirely avoided.
Travel Is divided to Franklin and
JUver streets, which are paved with
asphalt. South Main Is, or ought to be,
a business street, but below South
there Is muCh. unimproved property
which will remain unimproved until
the street Is properly paved. Several
years ago an effort was made to In
duce the property owners to petition
for asphalt, but without success. The
municipal authorities have not kept
the cobble pave In repair, doubtless
hoping that at Dome time In the future
the propeVty owners would see the ad
vantage to themselves of modern pav
ing. It Is believed that If South Main
street were paved In a very few years
there would be active demand for lots
along Its entire distance for building
purposes, and In many Instances these
lots would double In value.
Wllkes-Barre Is rapidly Increasing In
population and business mustspread to
keep pace with the population. South
Main street Is the natural business
thoroughfare south of the Public
Square. The first necessity to .draw
business In that direction Is to cover
the street with modern pave.
The board of directors of the Wllkes
Barre poor district Is composed of busi
ness men .who transact business in a,
business-like way. Recently the board
decided that an additional building had
Decome vl necessity 10 ctccoininuutvie uie
poor of, the district, and a structure to
coBt not exceeding J25,ooo was deter
mined upon, and bids invited. On
Wednesday the directors met to open
the bids, and twelve contractors had
put in their propositions, all of them
were local Arms. The highest bid was
$32,100, and the lowest $21,116. The con
tract was awarded to Fred Hendler,
who made the lowest bid. If the board
of county commissioners were com
posed of such, men as constitute this
poor board we would soon have a new
court house, and It would not cost the
tax-payers the half of a million dollars
either. The successful bid for the new
poor building Is very low, but It Is safe
to predict that the structure will be
everything that can be desire.
THE MURDER TRIAL.
Establishing an Alibi for Robinson-Convicts
A large part of yesterday's session
of the court was consumed In establish
ing an alibi for Robinson, one of the al
leged murderers of Barney Redck, who
Is not yet on itrlal. Hendricks, who Is
on trial, seems to have 'been lost sight
of in the effort to establish alibis for
the other three. Some more of the con
victs were brought from the county
Jail yesterday and those who were put
on the stand all testified that they
knew Simpson was a detective when
he was in the Jail for the purpose of
getting a confession from Hendricks.
Among the convicts who testified was
young Bowman, who la under sen
tence of death for 'the, murder of an
Arabian peddler. He testified that he
knew Simpson was a detective and
that ho warned- Hendricks to beware of
him. He also stated that when he spoke
to Hendricks the latter said Warden
Jones had already put him on his
guard. Jones Is dead and therefore
cannot defend himself agalnrt this
charge of having been in league with
prisoners In his keeping to defeat the
ends of Justice. If these convicts tell
the truth a queer condition of affairs
must have existed In the county Jail
during Jones' Incumbency of the war
denship. Robinson's relatives made out a fair
ly good alibi for him and were to some
extent corroborated by other witnesses.
What they swore to was that Robinson
was nt the home of his mother, in
Avoca, all day and evening of Nov. 17.
It seems to be the best all-around alibi
of the lot. The only man of the four
who hns no alibi Is Hendricks, the one
who Is now on trial. It Is not improb
able that the taking of evidence will
end today and the case may be In the
hands of ithe Jury by tomorrow evening.
The trial has been a very tedious one.
but In spite of this and the hot weather
the court room has been crowded every
day since the case came on.
Another Convention Hero
Wllkes-Barre Is becoming a favorite
place for the holding of conventions of
all kinds. One of these gatherings, to
be held in the near future. Is the meet
ing of the Grand Lodge of Ivorltes of
the United States. The lodge will con
vene on the 14th Inst., and the Besslons
continued on the 15th and 16th. Dele
gates will be here from nearly nil the
larger cities, and many of the smaller
ones throughout the United States. One
of the Interesting events will be the
parade of Ivorlte lodges on the 15th. In
this parade the lodges from all the
towns and cftles In Luzerne and Lacka
wanna counties will participate. The
Wllkes-Barre lodge will be headed by
the Ninth Regiment band. Jonathan
R. Jones will be the chief marshal.
An I'nsucccusful Enterprise.
Several years ago the Chescent File
and Tool works were established In this
city under what seemed very auspicious
and hopeful circumstances, and for a
time appeared to be prosperous. Re
cently the company became Involved
financially, and has now made an as
signment to Fred Thiess, president of
the Wyoming Valley Trust company,
for the benefit of the creditors. The
actual condition of the company has
not been made public, but It Is Inti
mated that no serious loss will be sus
tained by the creditors. It Is also
hoped that the company will be re-organized
and operations resumed at an
Explosion in a Mine
Yesterday morning a serious explo
sion occurred In the Lehigh Valley col
liery at Maltby. Four men were more
or less severely burned, but none of
them fatally. A miner named John
Steve was moving about with a naked
lamp and Ignited the gas. He was se
verely burned. John Babuskak was
burned In the face and was subsequent
ly removed to the hospital. Steve Ko
dak, a laborer, and Louis Vandermark,
a bratticeman, were the other injured.
The latter was sent to the hospital.
