THE SCKANTOTT TRIBUNE "WEDNESDAY MOIINTN-Gr. MAY 15, 1895. 2 Oil? Neig WILKES-BflRRE. fThe Trlbuno has openril n brunch n flce at No. 2, Laim'.nrr building, Public Square, WllkeH-liurro, for tho transaction of business.

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 o'clock. 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 time. 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. a smastTost DOV. He Comes to Wilkcs-liarrc nnd Claims to llovo Walked from Cnrhondnle. 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 Mm. , Memorial Day. Evening Leader; "Do the veterans parade on May 30 or do they not? Car. It be possible that a Republican legis lature In a state fertilized by the blood of heroes as Is Pennsylvania, has so tied their hands that they dare not ns an organization, .place iiowera on the graves of their brothers? It Is unpatri otic and consequently unjust." , A goodly number of Grand Army men who read the above In last evening's Leader would like to know what under the canopy the writer was driving at when he wrote the above Incompre hensible paragraph. Of course the old soldiers will decorate the graves of their comrad"s, but what has that to do with the question of a street parade? And what has the legislature to do with it? For West Point. This afternoon between 1 and 3 o'clock the board of physicians desig nated toy Congressman Lelscnrlng for that purpose, will examine all aspirants for the West Point cadetshlp at the disposal of Mr. Lelsenrlng. The board will ait at the Republican league rooms nnd all candidates are requested to ap pear promptly. They will be examined only an to their physical qualifications, and only those who are declared eligible will be permitted to appear at the later examination as to their mental and educational attainments. ' 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 Jury Today, 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. They Went to Itinshnmton. 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. . Notice was received here yesterday that the funeral of the late ex-Senator Eckley B. Coxe would occur at Drlfton tomorrow (Thursday) afternoon at 1.30 o'clock. By his own request the de ceased will be buried in the beautiful cemetery at Drlfton which was his own gift to that community and In the beautifying of which he expended many thousands of dollars. A large number of the more prominent people of this city and valley will attend the funeral. s All F.ycs on llnrrisburg. The opponents of the Quay county bill will today await news from Harris burg with a good deal of anxiety. The final vote on the (uay county bill Is expected to be taken. Considerable telegraphing was done between the two points yesterday, and some who claim to be well informed say they have as surances that the bill will meet with defeat. Death of Mrs. Sterling. A. A. Sterling, cashier of the People's bank, yesterday received the Intelli gence of the death of his mother, Mrs. Susan X.' Sterling, at Meshoppen, from Injuries received by falling down stairs. The deceased lady was well known In this city nnd was of New England stock, and a relative of Rufus Choate. The funeral will take place at Meshop pen tomorrow. Mnrrlngo Licenses.

Attorney O'Boyle raised a laugh by excitedly exclaiming: "Better that one hundred Innocent escape than that one guilty ntimin bj nnnlhed " On, of his Asso ciates quickly corrected him. Some time ago a strip a few feet wide was cut out of the asphalt on the south side of the square the entire distance to lay pipes of some kind. The work of restoring the pave was a disgraceful botch that should not have been per mitted. The pave on that side of the square Is badly marred. A fracas occurred at the Keystone hotel, corner of Canal and Northamp ton streets, yesterday afternoon. A fel low giving his name as John McGuln ness, of Philadelphia, refused to pay for two dinners, and the proprietor, Mr, Hoffmeler, proceeded to "take It out of his hide." From the fact that Mc- Quinness was shortly thereafter In a nelghborlhg drug etore having his wounds dressed. It Is Inferred that Landlord Hoffmeler gave him a "re celpt" for the two dinners.
