Was Well Known In tho County.
A few minutes before 12 o'clock last
night John H. Daniels, of Taylor, de

spent In hard work. He entered tho
grocery business and built 4pp a nour
ishing trade, having- a large store on
Main street, Taylor, where he lived the
past twenty-stx years. In politics ho
was a staunch Republican and his ster
ling qualities often attracted his fol-low-men's
notice, and he was often re
nuested to allow his name to be used
In political conventions.
In his own town 'he many times held
positions of honor, the gift of the people,
and his death now leaves the president's
chair of the Taylor school board va
cant. He belonged to Acacia Lodge,
Free ano Accepted Masons; Lily Lodge,
Independent Order of Odd Fellows; and
tho Taylor Knights of Pythias. His
wife and four children, H. J., manager
of the store; Elmer, clerk In the office of
Recorder of Deeds Huester; Lizzie,
teacher of the Taylor public schools,
and Mary, survive him.

BEZEi'S LIFE IS SPARED
Board of I'ardoas Has Acted Favor
ably la His Cast.
KILL GO TO PRISON FOR LIFE
Deiek Heard tho News with Pleasure
and Declared That Cod Was Good.
The Crime for Whieh He Was
sieateneed to Be Hanged,
Murderer Frank Becek,' under sen
tence of death in the Lackawanna
county Jail for the crime of slaying
Mary Kerslc at Olyphant on Tuesday
morning. Oct. , 1894, will not yield up
his life on the gallows. The board of
pardons in executive session last night
at Harrisburg recommended that his
sentence be commuted to Imprisonment
Governor Hastings will undoubtedly
ratify the recommendation. The only
other case of local Interest where the
board exercised clemency was that of
Dennis O'Donnell, of Wayne county,
who la serving a sentence In the East
ern penitentiary on the charge of horse
stealing and jail breaking.
Bexek was the first one convicted of
murder of the first degree In this coun
ty, and the verdict of the jury was
received with almost unanimous ap
The reprieved murderer had been
only three days In this country when
he stained his hands with the blood
of the young woman who had accom
panied him across the water.. The
story as-It came out In the trial was
that Bexek and Mary Kerslc had been
lovers from childhood: that his father,
a little better off than her 'parents,
frowned upon their betrothal and that
they resolved to emigrate from Austria
to the land of the free and get mar-J
, Miss Kersio Jilted Becek,
Mrs. Josephine Kramer, of Olyphant,
was a sister of the murdered girl: An
ton Bourschnack boarded with Mrs.
Kramer and lent her enough of money
to transmit to Mary to bring herself
and Bexek to America. The couple ar
rived here on Saturday, Oct. . They
went to Mrs. Kramer's house and on
the next day, Sunday, Bexek went to
Mayfiekl to see his uncle, Joseph Petro-
chlus. After an absence of three hours
he returned and was received with the
Information that Mary had transferred
her affection to Bourschnack. Mrs.
Kramer was the embassador that
created the change In her sister's re
gard for Bezek.
This news .had a very denresslnsr ef
fort on him; he begged and entreated
Mary to reconsider her determination.
but Mrs. Kramer was Inexorable and
Would not consent to her sister's mar
riage with Bezek. After thinking the
matter over Sunday night and Monday
he purchased a large bulldog revolver
at Lally Bros.' hardware store, Oly
phant, Monday evening, and Tuesday
morning killed his sweetheart He fired
Ave shots at her, all that were in the
revolver. Three bullets entered her
body and the other two missed their
mark. One went through her brain,
the third fired, and she. fell' dead in
stantly. There were two eye witnesses
of the murder. Mrs. Kramer was one
and a young man named Rosenfelt the
other. Bezek attempted to escape, but
was captured In the Lackawanna river
near the Olyphant bridge.
Was Tried Lsst December.
He was tried at the December session
of oyer and terminer court, 1894, before
Judge Edwards. John P. Kelley, then
district attorney, represented the com
monwealth, and the court assigned
Attorneys A. J. Colborn, Jr., and George
M. Watson to defend the prisoner. The
case was ably tried and It required ten
days to finish it. After being out forty-
two hours the Jury came In with a ver
dict of murder of the first degree, the
first one recorded In Lackawanna coun
ty. An appeal for a new trial was re
fused by the three Judges.
County Surveyor-elect Edmund A.
Bartl Interested himself In Besek's be
half and was mainly Instrumental In
raising funds to carry the case higher.
Attorney George S. Horn was employed
to assist In the matter. An appeal to
the Supreme court was argued at the
February session and three months
afterward an opinion was handed down
sustaining the decision of the lower
court and ordered that the recpr'd be re
mitted for the purpose of carrying the
sentence into execution.
. Then the case was taken before the
board of pardons. In the meantime
OovernoIX Hastings appointed Aug.
as the dan on which the prisoner was
to die. A respite was granted until
Nov. 6. The argument was made be
fore the board of pardons on Wednes
day, Oct. 16, and on that date the board
recommended that a further respite be
granted from Nov. for thirty days.
The governor made It sixty days and
set the date as Jan. 8, 1S95. The rec
ommendation of the board last night
Is the culmination of a successful
movement to save the murderer from
How He Reeevled the News,
Bexek was sound asleep In his cell at
2.15 o'clock this morning when Warden
Price, accompanied by cnaries nuran,
a keeper, opened the heavy outer oaken
door leading to the cell and rattled on
the heavy bars on the inner door. The
officials had not long to wait before tho
large figure on the cot raised Its head,
and, seeing the officials, swung himself
to a sitting posture. He was wide awake
and appeared to realize that the visit at
such an unusual hour meant either
death or a more favorable consideration
of his case by the board of pardons.
Bezek leaned forward, peering Into
the warden's face for some sign.
"Come here, Bezek," kindly said- the
The condemned man only partially re
sponded by stepping Within three feet
of the cell door.
"We have good news for you; the
board of pardons says you shall not
hang that you are to go to prison for
"God Is good," was the reply, and
while saying It Bezek smiled and cast
his eyes on the floor. The warden af
terward said Besek's manner was
much the same as might be that of a
child who had been given a sweet mor
sel; he gave no other Immediate algn
of pleasure, but asked If the decision
was the last Judicial action possible In
his case. 'When the officials left him he
was still smiling and leaning carelessly
against the cell wall
GOODWIN IN AMBITION.
He Reeeleed aa'Ovatloa at the Academy
Maale Last Might.
.That "Ambition" waa written to or
der for Nat C. Goodwin by Henry Guy
Carleton no one will doubt who saw
last night's production of that play at
the Academy of Music by Mr. Good
win and company. It Is a story of pot
Itlcs, Inter woven .with love, the scene
of which la laid at the national capital,
tha struggle of tha Cubans for liberty
gurlng aa the, central thread la tat
story or W Py, .
It Is not a highly probable story that
Mr. Carleton tells but It has much to
recommend It the way of dramatic in
terest and what is more to the point
It furnishes Mr. Goodwin with an ex
cellent vehicle for the display of his
ability as an actor. That he has abil
ity of no ordinary character no one
will seriously dispute. As Senator
Obadlah Beck. Mr. Goodwin has a
character that elves him an opportun
ity to display his great versatility. It
has depth, subtlety, strength and hu
mor, and all of the many phases of It
were admirably portrayed by Mr.
Goodwin, If his occasional lapses Into
faclcal methods be forgiven, lie is
a man of pronounced mannerisms
which dominate any character he es
says. These can possibly be pardoned
since many of the most conspicuous
figures In the mimetic world are sim
ilarly afflicted, but his descent to the
methods necessary to amuse early In
his stage career In less pretentious
plays are not so lightlr to be over
looked. They were out of keeping with
the character of Senator Obadlah Beck,
and In fart the only discordant bits of
colors In an otherwise, excellent mosaic.
That "Ambition" Is destined to prove
one of the most popular plays Mr.
Goodwin has yet been seen In seems
certain, for as interpreted by himself
and company it is a most interesting
and entertaining stage production.
He is supported by such finished act
ors as George Fawcett, J. G. Savllle,
Henry Bergman, Arthur Hoops, MIbs
Ethel Browning and Miss Annie Rus
sell. Mr. Fawcett and Miss Russell
were particularly conspicuous by rea
son of their clever work. The play was
well staged and the audience, not as
large by the way, as It should have
been, was delighted with the perform
ance. At the conclusion of the second
act Mr. Goodwin received a perfect
ovation, and the curtain had to be
raised several times.
MRS. BOBBINS' CONDITION.
Hovers Between Life and Death at the
Lackawanna Hospital-Letter Given to
Coroner In It Kobblns Accuses Neigh
bor Brown of Being the Cause of Their
Mrs. SSera Robblns still lies in a pre
carious condition at the Lackawanna
hospital. At midnight the hospital au
thorities reported that her condition
was unchanged. The danger lies In the
probability of inflammation of the brain
setting in. Efforts were made to ex
tract the bullet, but the probe failed to
locate it. The supposition is that the
bullet Is imbedded in the skull.
The husband's body still ies at the
house in Throop in which the tragedy
occurred. A telegram was sent to his
relatives In Cherry Ridge, but no re
sponse to it was received up to last
night. If his friends do not come to
day It Is the Intention of his uncle, Al
vln Shaffer, to ship the body to Cherry
The greatest Indignation is expressed
on all sides among the people.of Throop
against the man Brown, whom they
blame to a great extent for the terrible
tragedy which has scandalized their
Inquest Conducted by Coroner.
The Inquest conducted by Coroner
Kelley yesterday morning brought forth
nothing but what was contained In The
Tribunes account yesterday morning.
He empannelled a Jury consisting of
Dr. J. H. Murphy, Joseph Fabrlnger,
John Grimes, John Fltzslmmons, C. J.
Watklns and C. E. Davies and pro
ceeded to hear testimony in the town
hall, at 11.30 o'clock.
Alvln Shaffer, uncle of the deceased,
was first called. He told of Robblns'
visit to his house In the early part
of the day. He spoke of his family
troubles to his uncle, but did not on
that occasion make any mention of
Brown, although on previous occasions
he accused Brown of having destroyed
the happiness of his home.
Belle Bobbins, the youngest child of
the deceased, and Mrs. Brown were
both called, but could throw no ad
dltional light on the affair.
Brown himself was then called. He
denied the acts of the evening before
and the accusations made against him
by the deceased, but the next two wit
nesses, G. B. Mead and John Wallace,
swore positively that Brown dragged
the dying man out of the house and
dropped his body into the mud and
with an oath said he could not die In
Nellie Wallace, the little girl who
was In the house when Bobbins burst
In, Mrs. Wallace and W. M. Coleman,
neighbors, were also examined, but
their stories were along the line of the
already published facts.
Verdict of the Jnry,
After a short deliberation the jury
returned the following verdict: "We
find that the said Zera Robblns came
to his death from a pistol shot wound,
inflicted by himself with suicidal in
tent." The following letter was handed to
Coroner Kelly by Mrs. Brown:
Soeleyvllle. Nov. 1. Dear Joe: Let tha
courts of heaven separate us, not the
courts of earth. Take heed. If you an
swer, direct Prompton. Joe, I love you.
This would not have happened only for
Brown. David sold he would like to see
Joe Is the name of Mrs. Robblns and
David Is their little son whom the father
took with him when he went to Wayne
Hankers and Corporations.
It has become a fad among this class
of business firms that blank books can
only be properly ruled and bound In the
large cities. This is a delusion. If the
same order Is given a home Institution
the work can be done just as cheap and
well. The Tribune follows this advice
In all Its business. For what we can
buy at home (Scranton) we always give
the home dealer the preference. This
Is specially the case In our paper for the
Job, bindery and newspaper depart
ments. The popular Arm of Megargee
Bros, furnish us with 90 per cent, of our
paper. And why not, they are a pro
gressive firm, and keep a large supply
in stock. Do you go out of the city for
printing and binding?
