with the threat that If they did not

defended him. The charge ngalnst

lifted the stone out of its place. A
Bible, Jiyinn book, and a list of the
names of church members was under
the stone, but no money.
He denied in detail every part of the
charge except that he pried the tttone
from its position. He acquiesced lit
this allegation but eiidenvered to con
vey the lmprcHHlon that he took noth
ing when he found no money. The
Jury found him guilty and when he
was called up for Sentence It uppeured

The sentence In this event was a line

there for the private use of the mem
bers of the organization renting the

. Mr. Pcragg held that a chartered or
ganization, such a the -one' renting
Workingtrten'a hall bad the right to
have drink on hand and dispensing It
to guesta was not a violation of the
et se laws. .'Judge!' Ounster . did Hot
take this vb w of th law and cbalged
the Jury that a conviction under the
evidence of the defendants themselves
was the only logical result. The men
admitted they furnished liquor to those
who came to the hall and paid to get in.
The court held that this was receiv
ing1 money for drink Just the same as
if It were sold lii the ordinary speak
easy. The right of on organization to
have liquor on hand and dispense it to
assembled guests was not denied, but
It is a violation of the law where ud
mlssion is paid for at any price.

Michael JIcLoughlln, of the West
Ride, was convicted of robbing: Katie
McDavitt of a pocketbook containing
$11. Attorney M. J. Walsh defended
him and the commonwealth was rep
resented by Mr. Harris. On October 19
last defendant and prosecutor were at
a ball in M cars' hall and at 11. 30 they
took a walk out, it being very balmy
weather. Down West Lackawanna
avenue they came to Seventh street
and from there they got on Love road
that skirts the Lackawanna river.
They sat down to hear what the
waves were saying and it was here
that McLaughlin robbed her. btit she
did not miss her pocketbook until after
she grot home. McLaughlin went on a
big drunk and snout the $11. Kvery
chalice was given to hint to restore the
money but he made no attempt to
settle up. He will be sentenced on Sat
urday. COKSE lAYTON COMPANY.
Last Night's Splendid Performance at the
The Corse Pnyton company which
last night opened a week's engagement
at the Krothingham theater is entitled
to a crowded house at each perform
ance, and the company will surely be
accorded such a reception throughout
the week if last night's production of
"The (lalley Slave" is any criterion.
Of the many high-priced attractions
which have visited Seranton this sea
son many have not compared with the
Payton company In Its elaborate scen
ery, beautiful electrical effects and
splendid stage arrangements. Appar
ently to the Payton company, a draw
ing room or garden scene means some
thing more than cheaply painted scen
ery which the audience can never take
for granted is meant to represent the
drawing room or the garden. Kvery
detail of stage setting, even to the most
pivi.-riillcant article, lacking In all but
good attractions, Is used and a special
car transports them from city to city.
Aside from the staging the merit of
the company as a wholc-nnd individual
ly is much better than any seen In
Seranton this season for a low price of
admission. Kach iierformnnee contains
some good specialties, and between the
acts a stereoptieon entertains the audi
ence. Last night's production saw Kirk
Brown, an actor of no little promise, as
Sidney .Vorcott, the galley slave. Mr.
Payton essayed the comedy role of
Kranklln Kitts and shared with !raco
Kos. ns Psyche t!uy. the applause of
the Inrgre audience ,1'or the two parts,

couple lived happily together down near

The husband did not know what year
lie was married to her, but two children

ever. One evening when he came home
from work, he found her absent. She
was away three days, and Investiga

all right thereafter to preside over his
household. He refused to condone her
action and she then went to live with
an Italian saloonkeeper named Mike
Boss nt the Sibley, whose wife was
dead. She left I loss and took up with
a shoemaker named Joe Williams.
