THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-TUESDAY MORNING. MAY 14, 1895.
Oijp Neighbors Dou)d Ibe
Tho Tribune han opened a branch of
fice at No. 2S, LunnliiR building, Fublla
Bquiiro, Wllkes-llarre, for the transaction
of business. The publishers propose to
extern! the circulation of The Tribune In
Wllkes-Harre und tho surroundliiR towns,
and to that end will present a very com
plete department of Luzerne county news.
For success in this undertaking depend
ence Is placed solely upon tho superiority
of Tho Tribune as a purveyor of all the
news of the dny domestic, forelprn, local,
commercial and flnnnclul. The general In
terests of the people of Wllkes-Rnrre find
the Wyoming valley will have In The Trih
uno an earnest advocate, editorially and
otherwise. It is the purpose of tho puli
lithers to Issue a newspiipHr as vitluublo

MAYOR NICHOLS' METHOD.
Ho Imposes on Kxtraordinnry l'lno in a
As was noted In The Tribune one il.-iy
last wevk, Mayor Nichols hits under
taken to stamp the bawdy house evil
out of existence. He sends notice to
the keepers of such houses, as well ns
to the persons owning them, before him
at a designated hour.- The mayor
never sends for the parties until ho has
secured evidence which, in his juilp
ment, warrants summary proceed! n--;s.
On Saturday last his honor sent for
Mrs. Elizabeth Stewart, owner of the
Geneva House property, nnd also a
Miss Miller, who ostensibly rents the
house from Mrs. Stewart. The latter is
reputed to be. quite wealthy and owns
much valuable real estate in various
Tarts of the city. At ithe appointed
time Miss Miller appeared with an at
torney and after some little conten
tion the mayor imposed a fine of
Mrs. Stewart failed to put In an ap
pearance, but hls did not disconcert
the mayor, and he Imposed a fine of
$1,000 on her for renting her properly
for Immoral purposes. This action of
the mayor soon reached Mrs. Stewart,
and she promptly made her appearance
at the mayor's otllce, and an interesting
scene insued. Mrs. Stewart is aboun
dantly able to pay 'the heavy fine, but
she will not do so without a contest.
She upbraided the mayor with discrim
inating against her and persecuting
her, while others are permitted to es
cape. The mayor assured her that ell
persons who rented houses for immoral
purposes In this city would be called
to account Just as rapidly as the ne
cessary proof against them can be se
cured. Mayor Nichols has atnquestionably
hit upon the right plan, and if he shall
fearlessly and impartially carry It out
he will certainly drive the evil alluded
to Into the most retired quarters of the
city, and possibly he may materially re
duce its proportions. It is a notorious
fact that a. number of persons wh
move In highly respectable society
knowingly rent houses for immoral
purposes, deriving enormous rents
therefrom. These property owners
can be reached by law and punished.
The mayor's friends declare he is thor
oughly in earnest in this matter and
that he will proceed impartially against
all offenders. He does not expect to
be able to stamp the, evil out of exist
ence, but he does intend to drive bawdy
house keepers out of localities where
respectable people reside. His plan of
proceedings against the owners who
rent houses for Immoral purposes is
highly commended by reputable people
and It is confidently predicted that it
sfJJJJfn! a large measure effect a reform,
life mayor had another "seance" with
a number of bawdy house keepers yes
terday and imposed the usual fine and
costs. He has abundant proof against
all those whom he summons to his of
fice. A MUSICAL EVENT.

muslclal organizations, among them

a number of splendid concerts, and the

Two Days of Rnolng-The Best to Bo 11 ore,
Cyclists and others are looking for
ward with bright anticipations to the
bicycle meet at West Side park on
June 25 and 20. Some of the most fa
mous bicycle rides on the continent will
be here, and the West End wheelmen
will be sure to make the event one of
the greatest pleasures to the lovers of
this kind of spont. Wllkes-Barre is In
the National racing circuit, and the
races will be the best that can be seen
anywhere. The prizes offered aggre
gate the value of $2,500 and there will
be a lively contention for them. '
The committee In charge is composed
of Frank Dletrick, John Relnhelmer,
Edward W. Davis, Harry Shepherd.
Fred Gates, John P. Hunter, Ernest
Bohrage and Harry Jordon.
It is believed that these races will
bring together a larger crowd of people
than has yet been seen at West Side
THE END APPROACHING.
All tho Evidence In and the Summing I'p
Yesterday noon when court ad
journed all the evidence was In In the
Hendricks trial, and when the after
noon session was opened District Attor
ney Fell addressed the Jury. He was
followed by Attorney Shea for the de
fense. Mr. Shea is one of the youngest
members of the Luzerne bar, and gives
promise of becoming a criminal lawyer
of great force. He is a protege of John
T. Lenahan, the nestor of the bar of
this county. Mr. Lenuhan has conduct
ed the prosecution in this case In a
masterful manner, and his summing
up for the commonwealth today will
probably be one of his greatest efforts.
The court house will be crowded to
hoar him. It Is probable that the case
will be In the hands of the jury when
court closes this evening. It would be
useless to muku any prediction as to
the probable verdict of the Jury. There
has unquestionably been an enormous
volume of perjury committed through
out this two weeks' trial, more prob
ably than In any murder trial that has
occurred In this county in many years.
The killing of poor Hartley Helck was
one of the most deliberately planned
ciiiues in the criminal annals of Lu
zerne. Tho victim was an Inoffensive,
Industrious and thrifty man; many
knew that he was In the habit of carry
ing considerable sums of money on his
person. One evening about 7 o'clock a
man called at his home and told ltelck
that he wished to sell him a carload of
potatoes at a very low figure and asked
him to go with him to the freiKht yard
of the Delaware and Hudson company
and see the potatoes. Without a sus
picion he accompanied the man. When
the freight yard was reached several
other men assaulted and sand-bagged
Hoick, robbed him of several hundred
dollars and left him In a dylntr condi
tion. Fifteen months after this heart
less crime was committed, and when
the local authorities had accomplished
nothing, the case was placed Into the
hands of the Barring & McSweeney
detective agency. The result was the
arrest of Hendricks, Fisher, Hoblnson
and Kearney, who were duly Indicted.
Hendricks was Urst placed on trial and
for two weeks witnesses have been on
the stand. The details of this remark
able trial have been summarized from
day to day in The Tribune. The dally
attendance at court has been limited
only by the capacity of the court room.
Alibis were established as to each of
the four defendants only to be riddled
by the prosecution. The Jury is a fair
ly good one. and many who listened to
all the evidence believe there will be a
conviction, but more predict a failure
to agree on a verdict.
ECKLEY 13. COXE.
Death of tho Prominent Coal Operator
Th? announcement of the death of
ex-Senator Eckley B. Coxe yesterday
was received in Wllkes-Barre with
every expression of sorrow and regret.
No resident of Luzerne county was
better known at the county seat. He
possessed so many admirable qualities
of character that he was an almost uni
versal favorite here. Personally, he
was undoubtedly one of the purest,
cleanest and most conscientious men In
the state. As a business man he was
shrewd and far-sighted. His generosity
was proverbial and his charities were
far-reaching and made without dis
play or self-glorification.
Once he was forced into politics
against his will and bore the brunt of
a disgracefully corrupt campaign; so
corrupt, in fact, that he refused to take
the oath of office as state senator, but
tendered his resignation and was sub
sequently re-elected at a special elec
tion. 'He stood high in the councils of
the county and state Democracy, and
was not without Influence at Washing
ton during the two Cleveland adminis
trations. But Er.'kley B. Coke's Influence among
his fellow-men was due to his great
practical good sense in the everyday
nffalrs of life, to his natural gentleness
and kindness of heart: but, most of all,
to constant evidence he gave of being
a genuine Christian gentleman. He
will be sincerely mourned by all

Yesterday morning' at about 9.80 the
body of a man was eeen floating on the
Susquehanna river Just below the
Ferry bridge at this city. The body
was pulled ashore and was viewed by
soveral hundred people, none of whom
were able to Identify It, as H had evi
dently been In the water for some time
and was somewhat decomposed
The mon was short and chunky. He
wore a striped pantaloons, blue over
alls, black coat and had a handkerchief
tied about the neck. It Is the supposi
tion that .the body may be that of the
man who fell Into the Lackawanna
from a bridge In Scranton about three
weeks ago, and was afterward seen
floating along that stream near Lacka
wanna stu'tlon. The recent heavy rains
have probably caused the body to move
from Its resting place. As no one
claimed or was able to Identify the
body It was placed in the hands of the
poor authorities, und was removed to
Ransom for burial. On Investigation
a litter was found In one of the pockets
addressed to l'ubolo Kmolek, which

stretched their hose from the nearest
plug, opposite the school building, but
lacked considerable of having enough
to roach the burning building. In the
