not entirely without foundation, although
tho case was actually called and the proxo-

PRICE ON TRIAL.
Proprietor of a Well-Known Hotel in u
Special to the Scranton Tribune.
WIlkHS-llarre. June 21. The trial of
Fred II. 1'lerce. proprietor 01 the Grand
Centrul hotel, one of the largest hostel-
lies in the city, on the charge of keeping
a bawdy house, was culled this afternoon
In court room No. 1, before Judgo Lynch,
with Mrs. Kittle Schroedy 113 prosecutrix.
The case Is being conducted for the com
monwealth by District Attorney Fell
while Attorneys AicUovern, Shea am
Hunks appear for the defendant. Orcat
interest Is being manifested 111 tins case,
and the court room wus crowded all uftcr-
The witnesses who appeared for the
prosecution were not, generruly speak
lug, of the most suvory character. There
wus Alary Ann Smurt, riorence Walter,
Susan Stookey nnd others, who swore that
they hud taken part in Immoral prac
tines at the Orand Central. There were
also a number of young men who were
sworn nnd stnted the came. One was a
boy only 17 years of ugc, und his testi
mony evidently created a great deal of
feeling against Mr. Price.
Probably tho witness who made the
most fun was Colonel Orr, of Orr's dry
goods bouse, who suld in direct examina
tion that the character of the people who
went there was very bad. In the cross
examination by Mr. MeGovern, Colonel
Orr seemed to 'be hunting trouble. Mr.
McCiovern asked him If he had not been
trying to purify East .Market street, and
the colonel said he had not. There was
some nrgumcnt between the witness and
the attorneys, and ilnally Attorney Mc-
Oovern lost his temper completely, and
said: "Well, I never sat at this defend
ant's table .charged with crime, and us
ing every effort to keep out of jail, as you
The colonel' gasped for breath. Then he
stood up and roared at Mr. McOovern:
Well, If you never have, it ain't because
you don't deserve to."
Here Judge Lynch Interposed und the
crnss-exumlnallon went on, broken by
ucrlmonlous observation by one or the
other, until the judge would Interfere.
Mr. McOovern had Interrupted tho wit
ness several times and would not let
him explain what he wished, and so the
colonel snld: "If you want facts, and
names, too, of people who went there, I'll
give them to you." Mr. Mcdovern said
he would ask for what he wanted, nnd
would the colonel please refrain from
giving nny more?
When the cross-examination was over,
the colonel started In to make some ex
planations, which Mr. McOovern found
Impossible to Interrupt nnd sat resignedly
until the witness had finished. Then he
asked, In a weary tone, "Well, are you
"Yes, I'm done,' said the colonel, "and
you didn't make me finish, either, nny
tpilckcr thnn I wanted."
"No," assented Mr. McOovern, "there
Isn't nny power on earth which will shut
thnt mnuth of yours, when you get It
After this Interesting witness, nearly all
the pollco force was exnmlned as to the
character of the people who frenuented
Price's hotel, and nil swore that the peo
ple were morally bad. When the police
had finished testifying, court adjourned
for the day. The case will be resumed

The only sensationnl testimony was thnt
of the man Roberts, who occupies the up

lived. He suld that about 12 p'cloek lust
Monday night he was called down stairs
to the Curd household and there he suw
tho mun sulTiMing from exhaustion. He
asked what was the mutte-r and Gurd said
that he had been lu a place where he
ought not to have been and got shot, but
did not think that his wounds wer; seri
ous, and wanted nothing said ubout It.

he returned Gurd told thut he had been

Gurd had told him in reference to being lu

That substantiates the impression thnt
there Is a woman in the case. It has been
learned thut Gurd came home with his
coat and hat on, but that there ore no
bullet hole-s In the garment; therefore he
must have had It olT when he was shot.
It is rumored that a woman living not
far away from the Gurds bus not been
seen since Gurd was shot, and it is report
ed that she Is wounded. This fuct muy be
connected with the testimony of the

that he heard at least three shots and

I'lncoiirnglng Crop News.
Two Influences of tremendous power
contribute to the rise, encoruaging crop
news nnd confident replenishing stocks
which have been fur two years depleted
to the utmost. When business payments
have so long been $1.1.000,000 yearly less
than before It Is strange that the in
crease should be at the rate of $11,000,
000 a year when faith In the future in
spires general replenishment of stocks.

The rush for supplies In Iron and steel
resembles a "bear panic" in the stock
market. Because prices are mounting
everybody hurries to buy, so that they
mount higher. Bessemer iron has
reached $12.65 at Pittsburg, the Bar as
sociation has advanced common to $1.15,
the Wire Nail association puts up the
price to $l.r,0 per keg. the steel rall
makers have raised the price to $24,
eastern nnd southern furnaces have
both raised prices again 50 cents per
ton, and structural beams are $1.35 and
angles $1.25. It Is undeniable that
works In operation are crowded with
orders and others which have been Idle
for years are preparing to resume. At
the same time the most potent cause of
the upward start In prices, the general
belief that a combination of coke pro
ducers would raise the price to $1.50 af
ter July 1, Is apparently removed by
war among the producers, and a fall to
$1.25 In contracts for the last half of

For Members of the Sodality and League
of the Sacred Heart.
Into the Blessed Virgin's sodality
forty young ladies were received at St.
Peter's cathedral last evening, and
there was also a reception of many
postulants and, too, the promoters into
the League of the Sacred Heart. Yes
terday was a fitting day for this beauti
ful ceremony. It being the feast ot the
Sacred Heart of Jesus,
Rev. Father O'Sulllvan, of the Jesuit
college nt Fredericksburg', was expect
ed to preach the sermon, but he did not
arrive. The church was filled with
worshippers. The members of thp so
dality s-ang a hymn as the following
clergymen entered the sanctuary: 'Rev.
K. J. Melley, of St. John's, South Side;
Kev. F. P. McXally, of St. iPatriek's,
West Side; Rev. Daniel McCarthy, a
seminarian of St. Mary's rollege, Balti

Quitman, Millane and Feeley, of the
The hymn, "Venl Creator," was sung
and Father iMcNally ascended the altar.
His sermon was on the text, "Hall full
of grace, the Lore! Is with thee," from
the angelical salutation. He spoke most
eloquently at length on the Immaculate
life of the mother of God. but his ser
mon embodied Itself In this one thought,
thnt Mary, as the mother ot the Savloi
should at all times be associated In the
relation thnt a mother bears to her son.
In the church and In heaven she Is the
mother and He the son; they are never
separated. Therefore, It is the wise
Christian who makes of Mary an Inter
cessor. The first reception was that of the
postulants and afterward the candi
dates were received. The reci'ptlon of
promoters Into the League of the Sacred
Heart was next nnd then a hymn, to
the Sacred Heart. Tlvt benediction was
Imparted and In conclusion the Te
Deum was sung.
