Fred Kenyon Jones, musical director for
the Noss Jollity company, now playing ut
liavis' theater, was a resident of this city
twervty-flve years ago. At that time he
was associated severally with N. A. Hul
bert and L. B. Powtll, two of our lead
ing dealers In musical supplies. He left
Scranton on March 13. 187u, and returned
on Oct. 13, 1895. Since Professor Jones was
in this city last he has traveled exten
sively and is now tilling a good position
with the Jollity company. He marvels at
the change that has taken place here dur
ing a quarter of a century. During his
short stay Professor Jones hns been busy
railing on the friends of his younger days.
He Is the composer of the Incidental music

Diatrist Attorney Jonea Soya It
Differs front tho Story Told
at tho Inquest. ' '
There Is something strange In the
rreat fa semis. Lion that surrounds a per
son who stands chanted with a grave
crime. The trial of John Vlshniskl, the
20-year-old Polish defendant, tor ne
murder of Felix Davldiak on the South
Washington avenue flat. Feb. 9 Inst,
which la now on In the main court room

way well to the front to catch a glance
at the handsome defendant.
Alex Jankowskl and his wife, who is
a sister of VlfhnlskU fat beside the de
fendant all day. lie demean l himsyir
very much as though he does not realize
the ominnus Mutation wherein he Is
plaoed. Joseph Tcrreshevitz, who was
on the wltntss stnrd when court ad
JourrtfJ Monday afternoon, was cross
exnmined ost-rdny. There wan a
oprrl'fle haze enveloping his memory.

dered man. was the next witness.
described the shooting, s.ild he saw the
defendant point the revolver and fl-v
Into Felix's left breast. He Identified
the vest which Felix wore that night;
tht re was a bullet hole 1n It. The rar-
n erf vus ottered In evidence. 1 nomas
Pavldzak was one of thope who mlTht
throw some light on the tragedy. The
commonwealth suspects that he has
been spirited away to avoid telling any
thing derogatory to the defendant.
A It'ond'thlmtv Witness.
Tetaseo Pufdeavltch Is not much old
er than the defendant. He is a Potan
d.T. but speaks English well. He testi
fied on first story that. he. arrived at
the scene of the murder a few minutes
after It happened, and he went on nnd
described what he saw. Pavldzak was
d.nd. there was no doubt of that. The
witness answered the district attorney
that he was not far away when the
shot was flivd. that he was standing cm
the porch where ho lived. Attorney
AIoGinley, by dexterous cross-examination,
pot the witness to make exceed
ingly contradictory statements, which
went far to nullify his testimony in
chief. Purdoavitch unhesitatingly ad
mitted that he bears no love for Vlsh
nfekl and would be delighted to see him
Theodore Swantae was sworn. Tie
was an eye-witness of the shooting.
He was with John Pavldzak and the
murdered man when It happened. There
was little or no provocation, according,
to his story, when Vlrhnlskl drew the
Pistol and suit a human soul to etern
ity. Tlie witness on cross-examination
said that Chief of Police Simpson Is
paying his beard now; has promised
to ray him for his services.
Detective John Laseheskl. of RtifTaW,
through whose Instrumentality the de
fendant wis captured, was put tinnn
the wltr-ess stand nfter dinner. Wlim
he arrested VIshrHUi and told him that
It was for murdering a man in Scran
ton, the prisoner answered that he
knew It.
Defendant's Sister on the Stand.
Mrs. Alexander Jankowskl, sister of
the defndant. was caHed tj the stand
by th: commonwealth. iShe was sit
ting with hw husband at the defend-
nt's t:ile alongside her brother, and
when District Attorney Jones called out drawings of the model and submits a
her name she cast a wistful gaze upon similarly designed boat to the commit
hlm and seemed reluctant to go upon tve. The complications arising ore dra-
the witness stand. Her answers were
given with reluctance.
She was asked about tne movements
of her brother the night of the mur
der, before It happened and afterward.
Viahnlskl boarded with her. He came
in about 9 o'clock, went to his rooom,
and left in a few minutes with her
husband. They walked leisurely out of
the house. 'Her .brother was the first
to pome back; she doesn't remember
what time her ihusband returned. She
denied that she charged him with shoot
ing Felix Davidzak. The district at
torney had the stenographic notes of
the testimony taken at the coroner's
inquest. He Inquired if she had not
sworn at the Inquest (hat s'he charged
her brother directly with shootlnir
Davidzak. She denied that she ever
said these words. S'he did not. she said,
advise hi-m to hide under the hed, away
from the poJice officers, but she admit
ted that site gave him some money to
go away. Attorney MeOlnley objected
to tho manner In which she. was ex
amined and asked the district attorney
to let her go on and tell the story ac
cording to the best of her recollection.
Mr. McGInley dharged Mr. Jones with
endeavoring to entrap the witness by
asking a list of catch questions.
Story on Cross Examination.
The story told on cross-examination
was that her husband came home from
work that afternoon between 6 and fi 50
o'clock. They retired to bed about 8.30.
A few minutes thereafter John, the
defendant, came to tho bedroom door
and persuaded Yankowskl, her hus
band, to get tup and go out. John was
the first to return. She iheard no shots
while they were cone, and When John
returned to 'the house, he came In
through the hack door. She was stand
ing In the kitchen. His face was cov
ered with blood and he had a revol
ver In 'his hands. :She took the revolver
from 'him, went out to the closet and
threw the weapon In the vault. Her
brother was In his bedroom when sh
rime ha;k. The police arrested her
husband and took 'him to Jail. Her
hrithrr was in the house while the
officers were searohlng for the murder
er, but thev did not take him. She
gave him $10 with which to get. awny.
She advised him to go away, because
her husband had been arrested, and she
thought that her brother might be ar
rested, ton.
. In re-direct examination District At
torney Jones made an ofer and pro
posed to rtrove that the witness hnd
been tampered with. That Fhe swore
differently at the coroner's Inouest, and
that rhe made pertain admissions to
Officer Steven Dyer, whleh were In dl
rept contradiction to 'her present testi
mony. Mr. McCllnlev objected on the
ground that the district attorney can
not contradict his own witness, that
the offer did not show In what lan
guage Mrs. Jankowskl made the adm',
sions to Officer Dyer, she being unable
to talk Knglish. and that the matter
of tampering with the witness has ex
istence in the minds of only the district
attorney and Chief Simpson. The ob
jection was sustained.
Bonnet Saw the Wonnded "dan.
Fred Bennett, who lives diagonally
across the street from where the mur
der was) commuted, heard pistol shots
the night of the affray, came out on his
porch and raw a man leaning against
the fence, apparently In great agony.
At least four men in a group came out
and ait first assisted, later carried this
man way. He saw another man run
ning. Mr. Bennett could not recognize
any of the men. .He pointed out on the
map of the street, where the murder
was done, and the direction he saw the
man running.
Anthony Hebak was the last witness
heard yesterday. The only bit of In
formation gleaned from his testimony
wan that he is now conducting the place
t-hat Peter Kozloleck ran the time of the
murder, and In which liquor was sold
without a license. Kozloleck its now un
der Indictment for keeping a tippling
house. Bebak said lie does not sell in
toxicating drinks there, dispenses, noth
ing more ardent than glngerale.
There arc several witnesses on the
part of the commonwealth to be heard.
The evidence, however, of the prosecu
tion will be 11 nl.-hed today.

Biasing Stump Shooting Affray Tried Be
fore J lid c Kdwurds.
In No. 3 court room the case of feloni
ous wounding against iMIehael Krotky,
of 'Blazing Stump, a locality above
RIchmondale. was tried before Judge
Edwards. Peter Koznlak was riddled
with buckshot one moonlight evening
laFt spring by the defendant, and for a
time it was doubtful whether he would
live or not. Krotky was lodged In Jail,
and when his human target got out of
danger ihe was released on H.000 hall.
The defendant did not deny that he shot
Koznlak, but he alleged that Koznlak
was In close range with his chicken
coop, and believing that some one was
purloining the fowls, he shouldered his
musket and went out to look for the
thief. The. case went to the Jury late
in the afternoon and a verdict was
renohed, which will be handed into
court this morning.
James Dean was tried In No. 2 court
room before Judre Savidge, of Sun
bury, for murderously assaulting Fd
dle Davis, son of Henry P. 'Davis, of the
West Side, with a base ball bat on
Sept. 3 last. Attorney C. Comcgys
represented the commonwealth and At
torney T. V. Powderly the defendant.
Mrs. Jacob Plont, for the defense, swore
that she saw IVan strike young Davis,
but before that there was a howling
mob of young chaps about the defend
ant, and they were clamoring that they
could lick him. She 'heard Dean nsk
them to put away their sticks and
stones and he assured them If they did
he could lick the entire crowd of them
They had him surrounded; young Da
vis was up on Dean's back. Dean ran
across the street with his load of hu
man freight and tried as he ran to dis
engage himself from the boy. He suc
ceeded, but was followed by the rest oi
the boys, hooting and shouting that
they could lick him. A soon as D;-an
shook off 'Davis the saw him wrench a
bat from some boy near him and strike
young Davis with it. The Jury went
ou at 4 o'clock to find a verdict.
Jrseph (Irzywlnski was convicted of
selling liquor without a license. Rev.
'Richard A. Aust. pastor of St. Mary's
Polish church, of t'ne South Side, com
plained hat the phwc wns conducted
flagrantly, nnd that Clrzy wlnskl made a
specialty of enticing men from mass on
Sunday. He was sentenced to pay a
fine of $"00 nnd spend three months in
the county Jail.

Electricity Is the them? of the new
play which Stuart Ribson will present
this season, but notwithstanding the
theme, the play will be in no way sen

to Y-ale takes up the study of electric
ity as a fad, and whtn his fortune is
swert away Is obliged to depend upon
his labor in that branch of physics for
a livelihood. He secures 'a position as
an electrician In the ravy yard, at
Washington, and works hard to win the
$100 000 prize which has been offered by
the government. A rival steals his

Proposes Piping Lchltjh
Water to This City.'
Lehigh Coal Navigation Company
Claims to Own the River-Two
Wilkea-Barra Water Companies
Arc Also Anxious for Fight.
In connection with a new plan of the
Scranton (las and Water company for
increasing its present large water sup
ply and storage, there seems to be a
ttlff legnl fight in prospect, which may
Involve the Scranton company, the Le
high Coal and Navigation company and
the Citizens' Water company and tho
Crystal Water company, of Wilkes
Burre. The issue is destined to be of
espeeial Importance to Wilkes-Barreans
and Scrantonlans for many reasons.
The Scranton company has for sev
eral years been following a policy of
Increasing -its water storage capacity
away beyond the present needs or de
mands of this city. This policy 'has
met with the commendation of Scran
ton people Kenerally, and tts wisdom
was I'hown as recently as a few weeks
ago, when, during the severe drought,
this city bad a biff reserve supply
of water when cities andtowns through
out the state were suffering for want,
of the same article. During last sum
mer the company conceived the idea of
tapping the 'headwaters of the Lehigh
river In the vicinity of C.ouldsboro and
piping the water a few miles into the
Stafford tXleadmv brook or Into a reser
voir to be bullii upon tt.
Hosiers on the Lehigh.
The plans of the Scranton company
have, however, been disturbed from
three different sources: First, the Le
high Coal and Navigation company
claims It hns a right by special act of
the legislature to the Lehigh river,
which is the main source of supply to
the company's canal Which runs along
the line of the Lehigh Valley railroad;
second, the Citizens' Water company,
of Wilkes-iBarre, as long ago as Inst
December had designs on the same
headwaters of the Lehigh and made
surveys preliminary to constructing a
dam across tho river or piping water
from It. and, urged alon- by the re
cent drought and Wilkes-Barre's foul
water supply, a fews days ago began
preparation for damming the stream
at Waeonhursit's; thir l, the Crystal Wa
ter company, of Wilkes-Barre, has
been preparing to get water from the
same river at a point further south.
The positions held by all tho corpora
tlons in the four-cornered fight are va
rlous, the Crystal N ater company
seeming to have a less established post
tlon than the other three companies
Involved, that company being apparent
ly content to be In the melee and tako
whatever faills to Its lot. Notwlth
standing the 'Coal and Navigation com
pany's assertion that 'ft owns the water-
Tight of the entire Lehigh river, the
Citizens' company claims the Navi
ration Tieoiile have the right to only
that part of the river below what Is
known as diig Falls, near Stoddarts-
Will Top the Klvcr Above.
The opinions of the Scranton com
pany cannot be learned as tts ofllcers
and attorney refuse to be Interviewed,
but Ha movements Indicate that It pro
poses to tap the liver near Gouldsboro,
above the CKIzens' objective point,
stand or fall with the legal ouleome of
the case, and meanwhile let the Naviga
tion, Citizens' and Crystal companies
Kverytody In Scranton connected
with the Oas -and Water company are
silent when approached for any kind of
'information on the matter, further than
to say they have no Intention to con
struct a reservoir at Wagonhurst's
Thus far they seemingly have the best
of the fight. The Trtbune was In
formed last night that the company had
men on the scene and had distributed
pipe In a direction indicating that the
water would be piped to the bed of
Stafford Meadow brook. This Informa
tion was divulged to the Citizens' com
pany ofliclals In Wilkes-Barre Monday
and they were disposed to take by force
If necessary the Scranton company's
selected reservoir site In the river, and
from which It Is the evident intention
to pipe the water. Tt was ascertained
later, however, that the Scranton com
pany's site 'Was above that vf the
Wiilkes-Barre company, and no immed
iate action was taken.
They Aro Anxious nt tVilkcs llarre.
Meanwhile the Wilkes-Barre public
is suffering from bad water; 11 Is bound
to have good water and much of It, and
consequently the Citizens' company Is
being roasted, prodded urged and co
erced to prevent the Scranton company
from building Its new line and reser
voir. A point which may cut some figure
In the story is the settlement on Mon
day of the fase of W.IIIInm Dagen
against the 'Meadow Brook Water com
pany, which is an offshoot of the more
extensive gas and water company. Da
gen's land In Itoaring Brook township
was valued at 119,000 by viewers, pre
liminary to the company's possession of
It for reservoir purposes. Dagen Insti
tuted proceedings but settled last week
for !1,3,f00. It Is rumored as a possibil
ity that the Lehigh water will be piped
to a reservoir on the Dagen land for
the erection of which bids have been

Sir: A telegram on my de?k this morn
Itiif informed me of the death of Hon.
William Klwell. of IJloomyburg. and 1 feel
it but right to contribute my expression
of respect uixl reverence for nis memory,
About tho last of the old line jurists
judges who Impressed their individuality
upon tne bars or our siaie to raise oy
their examnles or honor, uniiity ana cour
t-y nil standards he leaves an honored
and respected name. Judge Klwell was
reared In a stern school, and his Ideas of
his profession were high. Strictly hon
oralile. In every practice, unbending In In
tegrllv. bv nature a Judge, he advanced
his high position on the bench and the
reports of onr state benr the Impress of
his ability. Commencing at the bottom
round of the ladder, he climbed round ly
round, and when he was cai'Ied from his
home In Townnda to wear the ermine few
were better tltted.
As a boy, horn close to 'his residence, I
recollect hlin as a man hea.l and shoulders
above others who commenced as he did
and a continual and fe-long acnualnt
ance and Intimacy with his family daily
added to my respect and admiration. The
weaknesses of advancing years compelled
him to leave the bench for private lire,
To those who had the privilege of listen
li:g to him In the family circle the remin
iscences nf the pat were a
charm. The rtnrles of the c!d circuits
over mountain and dale, of the backwoods
attorneys, of cur oils and amus ng eases,
kept one entertained continually. Judso
Llwell was one of those unbending old
line Democrats we rend about and re
flect. He lived and practiced with David
Wllmot und others whose memories live
and who-e deeds eland rut In the histor
ical and legal annals of our Mate and
country. Now he is a memory with them
A very long life, honorable, able, up
right, he hns been gathered to his fathers
ami leaves to his posterity a name to be
cherished. (joorge Sanderson.
