THE PRICE JL'RY Ol'T.
Tuc Scnsationnl Fading of the Case.
Prohnbly a Cunvictiun.
On Saturday morning court mum No.
1 was crowded to the tloor.s to licit' the
ending of the sensational tiraiul 1V11
tral case. The case Is one of tin' raciest
ever tried In thl court, nn J Judiro
Lynch was frequently obliged t'
order and linally to threaten to have
the court room cleared If tin- untimely
applause und laughter were nut
stopped. The attorney rousted eai-h
other's witnesses and added In no m:ill
measure to the enjoyment c' .lie c:vwd.
The defense, opened by Mr. Sr.-'u. et

Sit years old. who had visited the lum.
for Immoral purpose.!. '.Mayor M.aw;
was also on the um! and he e.tvc th
hotel a bad name.
The defense then put about twenty-
five well-known men on the stand, who
r.vore that, so far as they knew. Price
was a good, respectable man. and con
ducted a proper business. The names
of these witnesses were Lewis Tisch.

John McUulgan, Dan Shannon. Dr. Eu
Irene Butler. Sheriff Whit taker. K. Mar
vi:i. O. R. Stock. C. R. Reaves, Patrick
Foy, and others who spoke In high
liraise of Price and his hotel.
The arguments of the attorneys were
brief and in plain language. District
Attorney Fell did not spare Price, but
denounced him vigorously, as kc-tliig
a place where none but the vilest per
sons of the community would go. Dur
ing the part of the argument where
lr. Fell denounced Price, the litter's
R ife broke down and Wept bitterly.
For the defense , John Shea referred to
the witnesses who had ctlited Price
"with running- an orderly house, and
"roasted" Mayor Nichols vigorously.
He asked the Jury to uis;haie Price
and put the costs cn the iiyr.
Judge Lynch's charge v.M:i brief and
Impartial, simply statins the law and a
brief epitome of ttie te:-ti rwny.
Court waited after supivr until 9.30
o'clock, and as the Jury had not then
ome In. the verdict will not be rendered
until this raoniiny.
ABOUT STREET CLEANING.
WllkeslSnrrcans Have Nothing to Com
plain of on Hint Score.
There are people in Wllkes-Barre who
compluln about the condition of the
paved streets. They are mostly people
who do not visit other cities that have
asphalted streets, and therefore do not
know how little cau?e there Is for com
plaint at home. They do not appre
ciate the blessings they enjoy. As a
matter of fact, there Is not another
city In Pennsylvania, whose paved
trepts ore as methodically or ns thor
oughly cleaned as are those of Wilkes
Eanre. Visitors from other and less
favored cities note and remark this fact
constantly. There are times when the
streets are In bad condition, but never
when the weather Is such as to permit
them to be cleaned. No, Wiikes-Bar-neans
have little cause tocomplaln about
ttie cleaning of the paved streets. They
are habitually as free from dirt of all
hinds as can reasonably be expected.
They are kept in a clsaner condition
than the streets of any other city In the

THE MURDER CASES.
The Suspected Rclek Murderers' Trlula
Postponed Until Pull.
On Saturday District Attorney Fell
decided not to call the cases of murder
against James Fisher, John Robinson
and Michael Kearney, who are in Jail
-.charged 'With the murder of Barney
Keicky until next ' September. The
e-afels were down for tria-l "todav hut
Mr. Fell 'is not ready to proceed, and
'therefore decided not to call them. It
Is f.ild Jhat William Gillespie, attorney
for Robinson, Is endeavoring to have

The Lusserne Sportsmen's club la do

Just taught Charles Van Lewran, of

against upoit was committed, and when
Mr. Campbell, who is warden of the

Van Lewran arrested. 'Btiutre Ehret,
before whom ho was tried, fined Van
Lewran to for killing the rabbit nnd

any ctlurs are actively at work. Mr.
Bcgert's brother was appointed pest
master during Cleveland's first term,
and when he died his widow succeeded
him. She served during the greater
part of President Harrison's term,
which account for Jlr. Landmesser

Tho fact that the county commission
era have not appointed a new chief
clerk leads to the Inference that when
James M. Norria returns, If lie shall
be restored to health, he will be per
mitted to resume his former place. The
commissioners are not saying any
thing on 'th subject, but they are
doubtless willing to forgive and forget
If their old chief clerk shall, when in
his right mind, retract his charge .that
he and one of ths commi?.loners took
bribe money from Architect Meyers.
It Is said that Hon. Henry W. Tal
mer Is willing to goao the state conven
tion as one of the delegates from the
Wllkes-Barre district. If he shall re
ceive a call. Senator Quay could prob
ably not count upon receiving much
active assistance from Delegate I'al
mer. The principal county office to be filled
In Luzerne this year Is that of sheriff,
and there will be the liveliest kind of a
contest for the Republican nomination.
Not les3 than a dozen aspirants will
appear before the convention.
Th? suggestion made some time ago
by a local paper thit thr.se portions of
Luzerne which it Is proposed to Incor
porate In ithe new county of Quay
should not present candidates for office
In th eld county, nor even seek repre
sentation In the? nominating conven
tions, does not nvet with any favor.
The lower end Republicans declire
their purpose to tske a full hand In Lu
zerne politics until the new county nhall
he erected, and may even ask for places
on the ticket, the same as heretofore.
