CRIMINAL COURT RESIE
Kalapilo, of Kichmondale, runod
Guilty of Violating License Laws.
TKISCOULB IS XOT GUILTY
So Said tho Jury Before Whom He Was
Tried fur larceny and Receiving.
Nice Constitutional Point of I .aw
Raised by Atturnojr M. J. Walsh.
After a Christmas vacation criminal
court was resumed yesterday morning.
Judge Purdy presided in No. 1 and Judge
McClure was in No. 2. Joseph Kala
pilo, of Rishmondale, was the first one
put on trial In the main room. He was
chin-Red with selling liquor without a
license and on Sunday. Attorneys
Oeorge S. Horn and L. P. Wedeman
defended Kalapilo, and District Attor
ney John R. Jones represented the com
monwealth. County Detective Thomas Leyshon
swore that on Sunday. Februnry 3 last,
he and Constantino Morlslni. the Italian
interpreter, were up in that vicinity on
the day named looking up witnesses In
the Boschlno homicide case, and dropped
into Scott's store to inquire about the
location of the persons they were seek
ing. Mr. Sc ott asked Mr. Leyshon why.
he did not come u: and "pull" some of
the unlicensed grogshops.
I'pun this complaint the county de
tective went to Kalapllo's establish
ment and purchased two glasses of
lager and paid for them. There were
bottles behind the bur labeled with the
different brands of tanglefoot, and
everything ubout the place had the air
of a saloon. The defendant was pres
ent, but it was another man who-walted
upon Mr. Leyshon. Kalapilo admitted
that he was the proprietor. Air. Morl
slni was sworn and corroborated Mr.
Leyshon. The county detective was at
the defendant's place on Tuesday. Feb
ruary. 2(1, and was accompanied by Con
stable Michael, Moran. of Carbondale.
Hoer was bought and paid for on that
occasion. Kulupllo was the one thnt
Alornn Said It Looked l.iko llccr.
Mr. Mornn was sworn and testified
that he was presPTit with Mr. Leyshon
und heard him call for beer, get It nnd
pay for what he got. Mr. Moran does
not touch the stuff, but the liquid In the
glasses looked like beer. Oeorge Paine,
a resident of Rlshmmidale. swore that
he had been in Kalapllo's place sev
eral times, got beer, and paid for the
Deputy Clerk of the Courts T. P.
Daniels was sworn and after having
examined the record, testified that Jo
seph Kalapilo, the defendant, was not
granted a liquor license at the last term
of this court. The defense was that the
place was a boarding house and the
boardcrr, used to buy beer by the keg
for their own use. and that the times
Mr. Leyshon got the beer. It was given
to him without charge. The defendant
went cn the stand and denied every
thing. The bottles that were seen in
the house contained candles, he said.
The jury returned him guilty of the

Capiases were issued for the persons
of James McNulty. Michael Llpshltz

Mary Mahalko was tried In the main

Comegys the defendant. Both women
live In Throop borough and had an
altercation about some matter or an
other of trivial note. The prosecutrix
alleged that the defendant struck her

Robert Ike. chnrged with malntulng
a Bawdy house, was declared Innocent
of the offense. A verdict of not guilty
was taken in the case against Joseph
Oarbercylk, the young Polander from
the South Side, who was charged with
dissuading witnesses in the Vishnlskl
murder case from appearing before the
grand jury. Joseph DeLosky. charged
with larceny nnd receiving, by M. L.
Vail, was found not guilty. The case of
the commonwealth against Joseph Os
good, chnrged with false pretense by
Charles H. Clause, was called in the
main court room just before adjourn
ment and the testimony will be heard
In No. 2 the first case tried was the
assault and battery one wherein Ann
and Margaret Dolan were defendants
and Cella McDermott, prosecutrix. At
torney M. J. Walsh scored a good point
in this case, which shows him to be a
bright and clear-headed young law
yer. The case was called Monday and
a Jury was sworn. The defendants' plea
of not guilty was taken, but Attorney
Joseph O'Brien, who was private coun
sel for the prosecutrix was engaged on
a case in No. 2 and the case was with
drawn for the time being.
Attorney Walsh's Contention
When the case was again called Mr.
Walsh asked the court to discharge the
women on the ground that they hnd
bepn once put on trial and their plea
of not guilty accepted by the common
wealth, but that they had been let out
of the case by the withdrawal of the
Jury, which Mr. Walsh argued con
stituted a bar to another trial. The
court sustained Mr. Walsh. No person,
the constitution provides, can be put
in jeonnrdy twice for tho same offense.
Hut Mr. O'Brien succeeded in getting
the twelve Jurors together who had
been sivorn and the case was called yes
terday morning. The Jury brought In
a verdict of not guilty and directed
each one of the women to pay one-third
of the costs. They live in Joycetown.
Lackawanna township, and had some
trivial trouble last September.

Assistant District ' Attorney John M.
Harris and Attorney Oeorge 8. Horn
were for the commonwealth anil Attor
ney T. V. Powderly for the defense.
Decker is a young blacksmith and It is
said he struck Mr. Beers such a violent
blow of his fist in the face that two
teeth wera knocked out. The alleged
assault happened on the sidewalk at
Mr. Beers' store, at North Main avenue
and Lafayette street, while the prose,

IKiwn East .Manufacturing Company
That Thinks Well of Scranton's Ad
vantages. The Beach Manufacturing company,
of Hatford and Beacon Falls. Conn.,
a large underwear manufacturing con
fern, contemplates locating its plant
and headquarters in this city. Nego
tiations to this end. which began a
month ago with the manufacturers'
committee of the board of trade and
which were quietly transacted, seems
destined to result favorably.
The company controls certain patents
on looms and knitting machines for
turning out a peculiar kind of tleeco
lined goods, which no other company
can make. These goods were used by
the Peary Arctic expedition. The ma
terial manufactured is of all grades
and textures from the finest kind of
underwear to under and outer garments
used by lumbermen.
Two main objects are considered by
the company in its desire to locate here.
Its mills are at Beacon Falls, and 103
miles away Is Hartford, where the
manufactured stuff is shipped In the
roll to be cut and made into garments.
Would Cut Down Expenses.
The consequent freight rate Is a bur
densome item. Another disadvantage
Is the cost of power. Coal costs the
company $4 per ton, while in Scranton
culm can be obtained at an Insignifi
cant figure. Still another disadvantage
which it Is desired to overcome is the
unnecessary expense of . maintaining
the mills and the garment making plant
and main offices at two widely separ
Through Major Montrose Barnard, ot
this city, negotiations began between
the company and the board of trade's
manufacturers' committee. Major Bar
nard Is a brother-in-law of Mr. Beach,
of the company. The company's pro
position is that It will locate its busi
ness here If a guarantee Is given that a
proportionately small amount of stock
will be purchased.
The amount has not been divulged
by board of trade oflicials, but It is be
lieved to be merely nominal, as the.
bourd has for a year refused to father
any new industry which wanted to

Committee Will Recommend It.
Sufficient confidence was placed In
the proposed venture that a report
strongly approving it will be made by
the manufacturers' committee at the
next meeting of the board. Meanwhile
an effort has been made to select some
building suitable for a manufacturing
plunt. The building vacated by the
Uregory Silk Brnid company In the
North End has been suggested. It,
however, appears to be too small for the

promptness, sent their check to Messrs.

for Northeastern and Central Pennsyl

additions, or $10,998.00 in all. and on
Christmas day Mr. George Wahl, sup

Tropp the check which inexorable fate
had decreed should become a veritable
fulfillment of her husband's wish that
the policies should be an offering
worthy of the festival of Yuletlde.

house of the Scranton Packing com

stated at the office of Revenue Collect

would positively take place, notwith
standing the reports that the state au

Inspector Wells, It was said, was here
several days ago and ridiculed the idea
that he would interfere.
The seizure was made because the

be of the best quality and practically
undetectable from good butter.
