District Attorney Jones, assuring him
that Mrs. Sondofskl was a most Ir
responsible person. The latter was
sent for and brought her to this city
and had an examination as to her men

He reported to the district attorney
that Mrs. Sondofskl, though laboring
under some excitement, was perfectly

several of her friends were then heard
and it was learned that for a long time
she has suffered great Indignities at the
hands of her husband, who frequently
beat and threatened to kill her.
About a week ago he beat her shame-
wully and then put her and her babe
out of the house. Mr. and Mrs. Har

and she has since resided with them.
On Tuesday Mrs. Sondofskl had her

HANDLEY NOTE AGAIN.
Possible Thut New York Detectives Have
Pound a Clew.
A clew to the perpetrators of the
bogus Handley note Bwlndle and the
forged Fair note may possibly be ob
tained through the failure of Howell &
Co., bankers and brokers, of 80 Pine
street, New York. It was by using the
name of this and other reputable firms
that the forgers sought a prestige to
help carry out their plans..
Some of those Interested In the Pine
street firm ' have disappeared, which
has led the police of New York city and
Baltimore and the federal authorities
to begin work on a theory thnt the
concern of Howell & Co., had been
mixed up In the forgery transactions.
The name "Howell", appears In bath
the Fair and Handley schemes. In
each case the only address given
through which the sender of the notes
could be reached was ."Lock Box 815,"

dence has been found that the "Howell"
of forgery fame has any connection

lag Monday , Night-Discovered by
Accident on an Erie and
Wyoming Valley Train.
Soveral detectives and a nervous hus
band were scouring Scranton and Its
depots and public, places during Tues
day and late that night In search of an
erring wife, a child and a bold, bad
hired man, who hud eloped with her
from Blooming Grove, Pike county.
The husband had a revolver In his
pocket and blood In his eye, but was
forced to leave the city yesterday
morning without finding thu objects of
his search. By a strange accident he
met thu guilty couple on an Krle and
Wyoming Valley train at Wimmer's.
There was no bloodshed, but the hus
band took charge of t)he woman and the
hired mun continued the Journey alone.
John Kluinhaus, the husband, Is the
postmuster at Blooming Grove, where
he has a store, owns a' farm and Is an
ull-around solid citizen of repute. The
hired man, Gilpin, hud been In the post
master's employ for nearly two yeurs.
The gossips of the little village con
tended that Gilpin, who Is young and
good looking, was more openly atten
tive to the wife than the rules of strict
propriety usually allow. None of the
stories reached the postmaster's ear,
nor wero his suspicions aroused until
he awakened Monday morning minus a
wife, a baby boy and hired man Gil
pin. Rods Away at Night.
Inquiry revealed the fact that the
pair had driven twenty-six miles during
tho night to Georgetown, on the Erie
and Wyoming Valley railroad. Where
they spent the Interval between their
arrival In Georgetown and their dis
covery by Postmaster Klelnhaus on
the train does not appear. Anyhow,
the husband gave chase und Tuesday
morning scoured llonesdale, where lie
purchased the revolver. iFlndlng no
trace of them he hurried to this city.
In Scranton Postmaster Klelnhaus
engaged detectives to assist him, but
their efforts were of no avail. Discour
aged and downcast he boarded the 9.45
Erie and Wyoming Valley train with
the Intention of returning home. At
Wlmmers, near Maplewood, a train
bound for Scranton was met, and as
the train bearing the husband came to
a halt he perceived his wife and hired
man, Gilpin, seated In a car on the ad
Joining track. He lost no time In con
fronting the pair.
Gilpin uttered not a word, but went
Into another car. Mrs. Klelnhaus
made a commonplace remark while her
husband gathered up her bundles and

Ho Tried to Get tho Trunks.
Gilpin came on to Scranton and made
a. weak attempt to secure his and his
