For success In thlB undortiiklnn depend ence Is plnced solely upon the superfluity of The Trlhune as a purveyor of nil the news of the day domestic, foreign, local, conimercliil and flnnni'lul.

Close of the Second Week of tho Hen dricks Murder Trinl. The second week of the famous mur der trl:U emlixl on tS:turt1uy nrter noon. The jirftsecution httd n. lively Fiirprlse on hand for the defense on Saturday, nnd some more of the same kind may be expected today. Am was noted in these eillubins from il.-.y to l;iy last wevk, the defense v."tit heavily Into the alibi business, and seemed to have no difficulty In Katherltr; lotvtupr a cloud of witnesses, mostV re! itlvcs of the accused, who testified that the latter were somewhere else than in Wllkes-narre on the evenlntr Hanv-y Relck was murdered. How well this case has been managed by the prosecu tion did not fully appear until Satur day, when they ecgoimeneed putting in their evidence in rebuttal. To the ol aevlnff and discriminating llsener it U apparent that in not a single instnno has a clean-cut ulibi been established, not even In tho case of Tisher. and that is probably the strongest of tha lot The Robinson alibi has been knocked higher than a kite by the evi dence of the railroad conductors, on whose tr.Hns it was alleged lloblnson, traveled from Phllllpsburg to Avoea on the 17th of November, the day of the murdr. Robinson and hla wife testi fied that they travelled on ccrtuln trains between the points named on the day indicated, that lloblnson travelled on a pass, a'nd that he paid his wife's fair on the train. The daily reports of the conductors of those trains were put in evidence, and the conductors them selves testified that they received no cash fares between the points named, nor did they carry any one on passes oft the l"th of November. Henderson, the man on trial, has attempted to prove that he left this city for Avoea vith a relative several hours before the murder was committed. This Is met by Teputable witnesses, who testify theontrary. It Is now evident 'trtat "the Barring & McSweeney detective agency has don much more thorough work in this case than the defsnse had anticipated. In facit. It Is now admitted that the great est fikUl nnd marvelous industry has marked the labor of the detectives throughout, all the more surprising whyn It is remembered that fifteen 'momths ha1 gone by when the detective ag'pncy took the case and undertook to bring; the guilty to. justice. The end has not yet bet-n renrlfVl. Th" nllMs have already b&en hon?y-combed by the evidence in rebuttal nnd it will be) no surprise If they fall to tb" ground before the- prosecution rets through. One of the surprising n atures of this trial Is tho virulent ni'tneks upon the dt'teatlves by the counnel &r the de fense as well as by one of" the newsv papers of this city. It is constantly bought to crCaite the imprcfelon that the detective agency and the special de tectives Who were employed In the case have o. direct Interest, financially or attterwlse, In the conviction of the ac cused, and that therefore, they "will ewear.to anything" to ccnvlet. There to no reason whatever for such an out rageous assumption. The Barring agency was employed in this case by the duly constituted authorities arid' the work donei has been paid for ns It progressed. That tlfe work has been done thoroughly and as effectively ns the peculiar conditions rendered possi ble has been shown In the progress of the trfe.1. Whother there is conviction dr ocqulfttal by the Jury will not In. tha slighteert; degree affect the wisdom of employing the dotetrtive agency. The authorities will manifest equal wisdom Ini evt once employing the Bar ring agencyjon the case of the old sol i dler, who, as now appears altogether probable, was murdered at Plymouth the other flight'. ANOTH ERJM UK DtR . That Is What tho Coroner's Jury Says In tho ITolluntino Cnso. ifeference was made In The Tribune en Saturday to the case of rthe old eoldler, John Ballantine, who was found dead at the foot of the stairs in his home at Plymouth. He lived alone, but a woman employed by him camo every morning to .look after his house nnd Keep It In order. Last Thursday, morning when the woman entered the house she found Ballantine dead, with a broken skull. The first assumption was ttiaf he had fallen down (stairs and In that way sustained the fatal Injury. An examination made evident the fact tflat Ballantine had been struck ' a heavy blow on the head with a sharp Instrument, nnd thit the object was roblifry. Ilnllantlne was a pensioner and had Jot lecelved his quarterly al lowance of jr.2, and this money has not been found. Deputy Coroner Perkins held an Inquest and a verdict was ren dered that John Ballantine came to his death frcm the effects of e blow on the head struck by some person unknown to the Jury. Now let this cose be taken hold of while It Is fresh. A "CUTE" ARCHITECT. He Makes a Did for Popularity That , ' Won't Work. Architect Myers, he of the plans for a million-dollar court house, has au thorized the Times to inform the peo ple' of Wllkcs-Barre that he Is so de lighted with the city and so ready to show that he harbors no resenttmsmt, thai he actually holds himself In readi ness to invest $25,000 In a magnificent modern hotel, If other partjes will raise, say, $225,000 more. To show that he is not awayed by selfish motives in this proposition he announces lthat'he doos not expect to furnish tha plans for tho proposed hotel nor to bae anything to do with the enterprise except ns an investor in a projfict which he expects to be fairly profitable. Jf Architect Myerfl expeota to overcome the popular sen-blment against him by such proposition as this, he does nTTmder tand the people of WUkes-Earre and Luzerne county. And yet, there to no reason why there bould be auch a resentful feeling against Mr. Myers. lie is a shrewd, shiu-p business man and has simply driven tthe hardest kind of a bargain, with tho county commissioners. He Uas done precisely What almost any other would under similar circum stances have done made the beat bar gain he could for himself Popular re sentment should fall where It more properly btlongs oil the people's ser vants, the county commissioners who have apparently abdicated their own functions and surrendered them to the shrewd architect from Michigan, who seems to be runnliig tills new court house piMject in hla own western fashion. GROW COUNTY. The Survey About Completed nnd the ICCTort Soon to lie Vnde. The commissioners appointed to sur vey the proposed new county of Grow have about eor.iplefed their work and will soon make thIi- report to the gov ernor. According to the Hhickshinny Democrat, the Hue has been so run ns as to Includi; tho fffeatcr part tif I'.aUo township In the new county. Some of the co! tag" owners at Harvey's Lake will lo located in Grow county tuul the others remain In old Luzerne. few people hero ifi the county seat appear to have any apprehension that Grow county will materialize, mul yet there Is n : strong evidence that' the peo ple In any section of p.ie territory In cluded are opposed to it. If Uio com missioners report that the territory they have surveyed contains 400 sipiaro miles and not less than 20.0UO people, tinder the law the governor will be re quired to order an election to be held for the purpose offccstiiiK the will of the people on the question of new county or no new county. Suppose a majority v.fte for the new coiuity, that Hetties It; the new county will by fliat vote bo established and the governor must ap point county ofiicors and the work of organization proceed at once. Th? same formula Lacliiwanna passed through Would prevail In the case of Grow county if the people shall vote In favor of the new county. r.RH-F NOTES. George K. Davis nnd K. X.

During tho severe electrical storm which passed over this section Satur day evening, Abe Van Scoy was struck, by lightning and instuntly killed. Van Scoy was e'mphiyed as a friuner on the Hllderbrand farm, near Dallas. He, with live others, was engaged in tho field, a distance from the hoflsb, plnnf Ing potatoes. The threatening clouds did not disturb the planters until tibout .r o'clock, when the wind suddenly changed and the Htorm came down upon them wllth all its force. The planters hastened toward the shelter of the house, but hud gone only a short dis tance when the rain began to Tall In toivnts. Van Scoy being somewhat in advance of the others stepped beneath a spreading chestnut tree, and hod been there but a few seconds when n blinding flash of lightning dazzled the eyes of the planteis, and the bolt struck the tree under which Van Scoy was stand ing. When his friends regained their senses they hurried to the tree where they found Van Scoy, with the expres sion of agony on his face, and every muscles of the budy perfectly rigid.

They were very reticent, and would have nothing to say for publication, but It Is understood that the Central Kallroad of New Jersey Is backing up the scheme, and that a vigorous effort to push It through will be made. It Is desired to interest as many people along the route In the matter as possi ble, for obvious reasons. Tlfe line, if built, will probably pass up the oppo site side of the river, and Is probably only a step taken by the Jersey Central to push clear into Buffalo. Professor F. H.

Simply PIuiiro in After Thera and Stab Them with a DRgccr. A learned Frenchman, M. Desire Charnay, exploring the ancient ruins of Mexico and Central America, was surprised to find the Indians In some places living upon the flesh of alliga tors. One day he asked his host, whom he calls Don Juan, how the creatures were caught. It was done in two ways. he was answered, but usually the In dians plunged into the water, stabbed the alligator and drew him out. The Frenchman expressed a desire to see the performance, and took out a plaster, which he offered to give the hero of the encounter. "The plaster Is needless," said Don Juan, "but it will do no harm." Then, as they were passing through the village, he hailed an Indian. A tall, thin, nervous looking fellow came up, hat in hand. "This gentleman wants to see you kill an alligator," said Don Juan. 'That Is easy enough, and to please you, Don Juan " Here Is a plaster, my boy. Try to distinguish yourself." In Ave minutes the men were down to the lagoon, Don Juan and the French man In a boat, and the Indian, stripped for work, on the bank. In his hand was a dagger some eight inches long. Just then two huge alligators dashed Into the water. In less time than it takes to tell It the Indian stuck the dagger between his teeth and plunged out of sight Into the water. He was gone a long time, the French man thought "some seconds as long as hours" then the water was troubled again; the alligator, lashing his tall, came to the Burface, and tho Indian, covered with mud, was clinging to the horrible creature's stomach. Then they disappeared again, leaving a trail of blood behind them. "Bravo! bravo!" cried Don Juan, while M. Char nay's blood froze In his veins, and he wished he had never Instigated the affair. There was a tremendous splash ing. Some seconds passed, and this time tho Indian alone came to the sur face covered with mud and half suf focated. A cry of Joy escaped the Frenchman's lips. The Indian swam to the boat, where he sat silent for a moment, recovering hlg breath. "The scamp has bitten my finner." he said, bedding up his hand, "but I paid him, as you will soon see." Sure enough, while the Indian was still scraping the nud from his limbs, ine alligator, oottom upward. nDoeared at the surface. The Frenchman gave the fellow an other plaster, and then gave him 20 francs for his dagger. The alligator measured 14 feet 8 inches. WENDELL PHILLIPS' WIT. Asked tho Clergyman Why He Did Not Go to Hell to Save Souls. From Life Calendar. Dr. Furness, of Philadelphia, tells a characteristic Btory about Wendell Phil lips. ''Several clergymen," he says, "boarded a street car In Boston one day, and one of them hearing It intimated that Wendell Phillips was In the car got up and asked the conductor to point him out. The conductor did so, and the minister, going up to the orator, said: 'You, are Mr. Phillips, I am toldr 'Yes, sir.' 'I should like to speak to you about something, and I trust, sir, you will not be offended. 'There is no fear of It,' was the sturdy answer, and then the minister began to ask Mr. Phillips earn estly why he jierslsted In stirring up such an unfriendly agitation in one part of the country about an evil that exist ed in another part. 'Why,' said the clergyman, 'do you not go South and kick up this fuss and leave the North In peace?' Mr. Phillips was not the least ruffled, and answered smilingly: 'You, sir, I presume, are a minister of the Gospel?' 'I am, sir,' said the clergy man. 'And your calling Is to save souls from hell 7' 'Exactly, Blr.' 'We'll, then, why don't you go there?' " tOGIC EXTRAORDINARY. Links Between Clover Seed and Old Maids. Darwin said the amount of clover seed produced in any given locality was proportionate to the number of "old maids" there resident, which he proved by the folllnwg statement: "There can be no clover Beed without the bumble-bee, because no other In sect fertilizes It. Tho enemy of the bumble-bee Is the common field mouse, that steals Into their nests and destroys the larvae and eats up the honey. "The enemy of the mouse la the com mon cat, and the solid friend of the cat Is the old maid. Consequently the more old maids the more cats; the more cats the less mice, and the leBs mice the more bumble-bees, the more bees the more clover seed." Ho Know Joff. From Truth.
