ROBBED OX THE FLATS.
Jacob Warner Has a Llvoly Fourth of July
Jacob Warner, an employe of the Iu
Tont Powder company at Wapwallo
pen, was assaulted and robbed on tho
flats on Thursday night, and so badly
Injured that he ts now unable to lenve
his bed. He came from Wnpwallopon
to Wllkes-Rarre on the Pennsylvania
railroad to visit hr sister, Mrs. A. S.
Klnsey, at 39t North Main street. He
met two men on East Market street and
the spoke to him s If they knew him.
The three talked a while and Warner
said he was golnp to visit his sister
on North Main etreet. Warner didn't
know where North .Main street was
.and the two men said they would go
(lions with hint and show him the way.
The men took hint down West Market
street and when they passed a saloon
Warner asked his friends In to have a
drink. They consented and all went
into the saloon. In pliylng for the
drinks. Warner laid -his purse on tho
bar and one of the men picked It up
and examined it. commenting on the
leather of which It was made. While
he was handling the purse Warner no
ticed him trylnjr to slip some change
into hts hand and to'.d him to put It
back, which he did reluctantly. The
other man said to Warner that he nev
er thought his friend would do a thins
like that, and that he was ashamed of
him. When they loft the saloon War
ner told the man who had tried to steal
the money that he wanted nothing more
to do with him and he went away.
After finishing their drink the two
went out and Warner says after walk
ing some time he told his companion
he thought they were on the rvmd to
Kingston. "Then." he says, "we came
to a high board fence an 1 finally to a
gate. My frtond asked me to go Inside
and rest. We entered and sat down
when he said: 'I'm going to rob you,'
and seized me around the waist. I got
the best of him and threw him on the
ground. At this he began to laugh,
and I said 'I guess you were only fool
ing, wasn't you 7 and he said 'yes.'
We talked awhile longer and he asked
me what time It was. I pulled out my
watch and as I did so he grabbed It.
Then there was a lively suuf
fls. I don't know whether he
or some one else hit me, but
I three or four blows on the bead and
face which partly stunned me, though
I continued to fight and at last got my
arms around the fellow's waist. When
I did this someone kicked me three
or tour times In the ribs and I had to let
e;o After that I could do nothing to
help myself. He or they, for I think
there were two of them, cut my pants
off, stole my watch and about 1-0 In
money and that la all I know. When
I came- to myself It was getting day
light and not having my trousers I
could not go out; so I laid alongside the
fence until I saw some workmen pass
ing and I begged them to gt me a pair
of pants, which they did. I struggled
out of the place, crossed the river end
met Cfmstable Bertles and he took me
to Hart's drug- store, where they
patched me up aj best they could and
Bertles afterward took ma to my sis
ter's. Warner Is In bad shape, his head be
ing badly cut, and his side is a mass of
bruises, where he -was kicked to make
htm, relinquish) .his hold on his assail
ant He will not be able to be about
again for some thne, but when he Is,
he will take vigorous steps to have his
a.Tsallants punished for their attack.
The man who -went across the river
iwlth him. is a small man with sandy
moustache and light hair.
WILL THEY ENDORSE ?
A Democrat! Party Paper Urges an En
dorsement of Republican forjudge
Editor Boyd, of the News-Dealer, Is
heartily In favor of an endorsement of
the Republican candidate for judge by
the Democratic party, but whether the
bosses of the coming Democratic con
vention will think the same or not Is a
question. It -would be but fair In the
Democracy to endorse a Republican
Judge In return (or the four endorse
ments which the Republicans of this
county have given the Democratic
nominees forjudge, In order to keep the
Judiciary non-partisan, Mr. Itoyd says:
Sensible -Democrats all agree with the
stand taken by the News-Dealer
against the nomination of a (Democra
tic Judge by the county convention,
That some gentlemen have Judicial am
bition, and are anxious to fill a place of
that kind hasn't got anything to do
with the question. It Is simply one of
good politics and good politics Is
against any nomination. The plain
matter of fact toting people -will rea
son, If the Democrats have now two
Judges, why should a third be given
them. Better far for the party In every
respect, and for the people as well, that
Republican be placed on the bench
now adorned by Messrs. Woodward
and Lynch In preference to a Dem
ocrat. The News-Dealer man has a good
political head. He knows that the ar
gument of a non-partisan Judiciary la
one of-the most patent that can be ad
vanced, and he also knows that It
-would be far better for the Democratlo
party to endorse a Republican Judge,
than to put tip a candidate against the
Republican nominee and have that can
didate beaten at the polls. But then,
Mr. Boyd's ideas are not the Ideas of
Mr. Garman, who will, in the absence of
John T. Lcnahan, probably be in charge
cf the Lonahan "influence." It is well
known that Mr. Garman aspires to a
seat on the bench, and had be not been
"called oft" last fall, would have made
things pretty lively for Judge Rhone
In the convention for the nomination
of judge of the orphan's court. This
chance, opened by Judge Rice's promo
tion to the Superior court, Is one not to
be thrown lightly aside, and M is prob
able that the Democratlo convention
will hear from Mr. Garman. Mr. Mc
Lean is also spoken of as a possible
candidate, but hia well-known opposi
tion to Judge Lynch a few years ago
will bear fruit If he is nominated. As
Mr. Boyd says, It would be good poll
tics for the Democrats to make a nom
ination, but Lurerne county Democrats
were never noted for good policy, and
It Is altogether likely that July will see
a candidate for judge nominated on
the Democratic ticket
STABBED IN A FIGHT.
John A. Mills stabbed by a Drunken
Date Tuesday night Andrew Umlah,
a Po'lander, stopped in front of the resi
dence of John A. Mills, a (well known
resident of McLean street, and made a
number of insulting remarks. Mr.
Mills came out to drive him away,
when the latter drew a knife and made
an attack on Mills, stabbing him live
times before he could get away. The
Injuries were in the shoulders, and one
In the sldo under the ribs. The last is
the only one that may be dangerous.
Dr. Trapold was at once called In to
see Mills, he pronounced his Injuries
comparatively slight. The physician
says that Mills will recover It no com
plications set In.
Vmlah, in the meantime, had been
arrested, and offered no resistance
when he was taken to the lock-up.
Yesterday morning he was given a
hearing beforo the mayor, and he
claimed that Mills had made an at
tack on him and he had only Used
his knife to defend himself. Mayor
Nichols held Vmlah in $1,000 ball for
appearance at court. The unfortunate
Polnnder had no one willing to risk
that sum on his turning up at court,
and in default of the ball he was sent
up the river to await bis trial.
BEFORE THE MAYOR.
Joseph Baker's Wlfo Assists His Honor in
Punishing Ucr Husband.
James (Meehan, commonly known as
"Uncle" Meehan, and iMlke Welch were
given a hearing by Mayor Nichols yes
terday morning charged with robbing
an old man named William Muer of 120.
The bill was found on Meehan and he
was held In $500 bail for court, and
Welch in $100 ball as an accomplice.
Joseph Baker, a Polander employed
at the Hazard Rope works, was before
the mayor on a charge of assault and
battery, preferred by a 'Polish woman
who lives near him. Joseph had been
drunk, and the prosecutrix presented
enough evidence to warrant the mayor
Imposing a fine of $1 and costs. Jo
seph's wife was present and told the
mayor she had but $3, which she gave
up, and her husband was allowed to
depart. As the couple went out of the
court room the wife soundly berated
her husband for getting into trouble,
and with an umbrella belabored him
fiercely for his bad conduct. Joseph
took his punishment meekly and
seemed to feel that there might be some
grounds for the wrath of his 'better
THE WAVE OF MORALITY.
Mayor Nichols and the Police Have Picked
I'p More I'nfortunstos.
Mayor Nichols and the police are now
at work In earnest to raid all the dis
reputable houses In the city, and on the
night of the Fourth an unexpected visit

Mrs. Hatfield, on Barney street. As the
result of this attention the proprietress
and three men were before the mayor
yesterday morning, while two more
men got away In the confusion of the
raid. The mayor held the woman in
$300 ball and the men In $50 each for a
further hearing this evening.
Willie Morgan and his wife, Lizzie
Morgan, were arrested on Wednesday
night charged with keeping a disorder
ly house at 36 High street. The raid
was made by Officer Drake at 1 o'clock

mate, was also arrested. The old Ger
man who rented the house, appeared
against them. Willie was fined $10 and
costs, his wife $5 and costs for keeping
a bawdy house. Minnie Williams paid
1" and costs for frequenting a disorder
ly house and Morgan and wife held in
$300 bail for court.
