THE MAYOK IX EARNEST.
Ilo Cntiscs tho Arrest of n llntcl-Kccrcr
on a Very Serious Chnre.
Great consternation was occasioned
at a late hour on Monday night, when
a detachment of ixillce, nitins under
the Instruction of Mayor Nichols., made
a descent on the Central hotel, located
on Knot Market street and arrested the
proprietor. Kred C. Trice. The otllccrs
also Invaded the slttlnsr room and a
number of the bed-chumlicrs. with a
view to securing evidence to simport
the charjres In which the nrr-.'t of the
proprietor was made. At midnight
Landlord Price was taken before the
mayor and arraigned on the chanr of
maintaining an assignation house. The
mayor held him In 1.000 for a further
hearing yesterday afternuun at 2
No one doubts, after this step by tlv
mayor, that the city's chl'.'f magistrate
Is In dead earnest In h'.s camp'l"'
against houses of Immorality, whether
they he hiprh or low. Fred Price haa
been a well-known and popular hotel
man In this city for many years. For a
lonif time he was chief clerk at one of
the principal hotels, and several years
ago became the proprietor of the Cen
tral hotel, on East Market street. Great
Improvements were made in the build
ing and he seemed to be doing a large
business In a legitimate way for some
Complaints against the character of
the Central have been coming to tho
mayor for some time and he caused a
careful Investigation to be made before
he took the decisive step on Monday"
night. It is said the mayor has his eye
on a number of other places on which
suspicion rests.. The mayor Is in earn
est In this crusade.
At the hearing yesterday afternoon a
large number of witnesses appeared
and made out an overwhelming case
against Price. According to the evi
dence of a score of men and women,
the Grand Central, a duly licensed ho
tel, on one of the most prominent
streets of the city, has for more than a
year been a den of vice and Iniquity.
The mayor very properly held Price In
$1,000 to appear at the court of quar
ter sessions. A clearer case was never
made out against any person at a pre
liminary hearing. Pome pitiful inci
dents occurred In the mayor's court
yesterday. One of them was a ver
dant girl from the country, 17 years of
age, who, with tears confessed that she
was taken to Price's hotel, drank liquor
there and was. ruined. A bny only 16
years old confessed that he had been a
frequent visitor there for Immoral pur
poses. Unless all the witnesses com
mitted perjury Price deserves severe
punishment and It Is hoped he will get
It. Mayor NichoH- is on the right
track; let him follow to the end the
policy he has adopted.

Late on Monday night the police
found a small boy, aged 10 or 11 years,
wandering aimlessly about the streets,
and took him to the station house to
secure. If possible, an account of him
self. He remained at the station house
during the night and yesterday morn
ing the mayor undertook to learn his
story. He was a rather bright, sharp
lad. and said his name was Roger
O'Malley, and that his home was at
Carbondale. He further stated that he
left Carbondale on Thursday last and
walked the entire distance to this city,
that at night he slept In the fields, a
story which was not borne out by his
general appearance, his clothes being
neat and clean, and giving no evidence
whatever of exposure. The boy added
that his parents are dead and that he
has been living with the family of
Michael Surdeval. He wears a neat
dark suit, black stockings, white sweat
er, laced shoes and a fur cap. The
mayor was yesterday endeavoring to
get track of the boy's friends with a
view of sending him home. The lad
was probably not telling the truth, but
the mayor will do the best he can for
, Memorial Day.
Evening Leader; "Do the veterans

A goodly number of Grand Army men

' An Undutlf ul Boy.
' Some time ago a benevolent lady,
Mrs. Wbrthington, of Plymouth, took
a young lad from the orphans' home
for the purpose of adopting him. The
kind old lady has had constantly trou
ble with the lad, who seems not to ap
preciate the kindness shown him. On
Friday he asked his benefactress for
money to visit the Buffalo Bill show
and was refused. In some way he
managed to steal money enough for the
purpose and went, to the show. Mrs.
Worthlngton had him arrested and
bbors Doa)d fbe
sent to Jail. The lady does 'not care
for the Iobs she sustained, but seems to
think his Is a case demanding drastic
treatment, and she is probably right.
He is a bad boy and the better plan will
bi to return him to tho stricter dis
cipline of the orphans' home.
DRAWIXti TO A CLOSE.
Tho Cuso of llcndrluk Will Uo to tho
Yesterday was devoted to the
speeches of counsel In the celebrated
Harney Itelck murder trial. When
court opened the much talked about
register of tho Hoboken Young Mens
ChrlRtiun association was offured In
evidence. It showed that Koblnsun
was registered on Nov. 15. 1893, but as
It was not denied that Hoblmion was in
llolmkcn on that day, not much Import
ance attaches to the register.
Attorney Shea for the defense re
sumed his Npeech and continued to ad
dress the Jury at great length, going
very thoroughly over tho testimony
and making the most ho could of It.
He was followed by Attorney O' Boyle,
also for the defense, who made a very
strong plea on behalf of his client. He
Is a young lawyer of great promise, and
la particularly strong when addressing
the Jury. He closed at 3.45 In the after
noon and was Immediately followed by
,;nhn T. Letiahaa 'for the common
wealth. No nblcr argument has been
heard In the court house in many years.
Mr. Lenahan sifted the evidence In de
tail from the beginning of the trial and
left scarcely a shred of the vaunted
alibis. His marvelous memory never
showed to better advantage. He never
referred to notes, but had every detail
in his mind. Mr. Lenahan spoke with
unusual rapidity for two hours, when
court adjourned. He will complete his
plea this morning and will probably
close before dinner. Nothing will then
remain but Judge Woodward's charge
to the jury, which will probably con
sume several hours. In any event, the
case will be In the hands of the Jury
some time today. There has been such
an unusual amount of contradictory
evidence (and probably more perjury)
that nil manner of predictions are
heard as to the verdict.

A romantically-Inclined young couple
Samuel Salsberg and Carrie Itein
berger suddenly disappeared without
the knowledge of their friends on Mon
day night and proceeded to Ulngham
ton with all speed, where they were
married. Yesterday the father of the
bride, Max Helnberger, received a dis
patch from his new son-in-law asking
forgiveness, which was at once grant
ed. The young couple returned to the
city yesterday afternoon and at once
proceeded to the residence of Mr. Heln
berger, on South Main street. Such In
cidents may appear very romantic to
the young people, but the average par
ent does not enjoy it at all.
A Free Fight.
A lot of Polandors and Hungarians
became Involved In a free fight In a
saloon on New Empire street on Mon
day night, when Officer Drake was
called In to preserve the peace. He ar
rested John Bingham and Andrew Bals
cow, and lodged them In tire lock-up.
Yesterday morning they were con
fronted by the mayor. The officer testi
fied that Balscow had struck him a
vicious blow, far which his honor re
quired him to pay 830 and costs. The
other fellow got off with a fine of $3.50.
The mayor shows no mercy to fellows
who assault his officers.
Funeral of Fcklcy II. Coxe. .
