County Detective Leyshon represent
ed llio commonwealth and C. H. Soper
appeared for the accused. The evldncs
adduced ut the inquest was In part sub
mitted und it pointed bo Htrongly to
Giishitas' guilt that there was no hesi
tancy on the part of the alderman in
committing him to answer at court.
Onlv three witnesses were heard.
Adum Fein ceder, of Price street, wh.i
was the murdered man's miner; P. M.
Messett. a Btreet car conductor, and
Coroner f. P. Longstreet. Schroeder
testified that Mickus had told him on
the Monday preceding St. Patrick's Day
that his wife threatened that her
brother and Grlshka would kill him,
Conductor Messett told of the incident
on the street car, by which the com
monwealth hopes to prove that! the
murdered man and Grlshka were to
(tether the night of the murder.
About 9.15 o'clock p. m. four men,
either Poles or Hungarlans.boarded the
Luzerne street car, of which Messett
was In charge, and on reaching Seventh
street one of them tendered a $20 bill in
payment for his fare, although he had
a nickel In his hand. The conductor re
fused to change the bill and a wrangle
ensued, which ended In the man giving
over the nickel. He had caused so much
trouble on the car that when the corner
of Main avenue and Jackson street was
reached the conductor called a police
man and had him put off. The other
three rode as far as Washburn street.
where they got off and started back to
wards Jackson street. One of them an
swered the description of Mickus, the
murdered man, and the other, Grlshka,
tallies in many respects with the man
with whom Conductor Messett had the
trouble. (
County Detective Leyshon had MIc
kus put on his cap and stood him up
before Messett The witness said the
cap, which Is light colored and of the
bicycle style, is similar to the cap worn
by the man with whom he had the
trouble. The features he had also seen
before, but he would not say that
Mickus and the passenger in question
were one and the same,
Coroner Longstreet told of how the
body lay when found and showed that
death could not have possibly resulted
from Mickus being struck by a train.
He then described how his notice was
attracted to Grlshka, who was one of
the crowd that gathered on the scene,
and how, after becoming satisfied that
the fellow s suspicious actions would
bear investigation, he called him to him
and discovered blood stains on his over
coat. He also stated that he saw Grlsh
ka attempt to wash oft the stains with
snow after he had been handed over to
the custody of Patrolman Evans.
Mr. Soper asked a number of ques
tions of each witness. The law tre-
vented him from making any argument,

Charles Miller waa arrested last eve
ning as being an accessory to the mur
der of John Mickus. At the time of
the coroner s inquest Miller was bus
pected of being implicated in the crime.
'mere was not, however, sufficient evl
dence to hold him. County Detective
Leyshon has since that time gathered
further proof and as a result Miller was
arrested last night, while he waa at
the Lloyd street home of his sister.
Mra John Fickus, wife of the murdered
Lieutenant Spellman and John Jones
of Jackson street, assisted in making
the arrest. Miller vaa taken to the
West Side police station, where he
spent the night. To a Tribune renort
er he denied any knowledge of the mur
der. He was home at the time of the
discovery. He is a middle-aged man,
Ono of the chief causes which led to
Miller's arreBt was the threat made to
Mickus by his wife that her brother,
Killer, and Grlshka would kill him,
which threat he repeated to his miner,
Adam Schroeder, on the Monday pre
ceding tne murder.

Four deaths waa yesterday's record
of fatal accidents. Richard Gaughan
and John Gaughan, brothers, were In
stantly killed in the Pine llrook snait;
James H. Collins was fatally injured
on the Delaware and Hudson tracks in
Green Ridge, and died at the Lacka
wanna hospital, and Steven Kofsky, of
the South Side, died at the Moses Tay
lor hospital, as the result of two frac
tured ribs, sustained a week ago at
the blast furnace.
Richard and John Gaughan worked
together In a chamber on the old Po-
cono vein in the Pine Brook shaft. They
tired a blast about 10 o'clock and went
bock to the face of the chamber as
miners are wont to do after the smoke
clears away, to pee what amount of
coal has been loosened. They were
only a few moments returned when a
slab of roof weighing ten tons fell down
and crushed them to death.
The body of Richard was fearfully
crushed, but that of John was without
any marks, except a small one on the
temple. They were removed to the
home of their parents, Mr. and Mrs.
William Gaughan, on Fourth. Btreet,
Richard was married Ave months ago
to Misa Emily ltornasco. of Stafford
avenue. South Side, and.they lived with
her parents. He had purchased a lot
on that Btreet, and was preparing to
build a home. He was banjo and
violin player of great skill, and was a
young man of good character. He was
31 years old.
John was 20 years old and his mar
riage with Miss Emme Frank, of the
Flats, was announced to take place
within two weeks. He waa also re
spected for his good traits.
Last week their slater, Miss Bridget
Gaughan, was married to Joseph Gow
er, of the South Side. Their deaths
have stricken their mother with Ill
ness and her condition Is serious. Their
father in a miner in the same shaft, and
when the sad news was broken to him
after the bodies had been uncovered
from the weight of rock, he swooned
and lost consciousness for several min
utes. William Gaughan, clerk at Mat
thew Bros'. Btore, was their brother.
The double funeral will ake place
tomorrow morning at o'clock from
the home on Fourth street. High mass
of requiem will be celebrated at St.

On his way to work yesterday after
noon at 5 o'clock James H. Collins, 29
years old, son of Hugh Collins, of
Phelps street, was fatally Injured on
the Delaware and Hudson railroad near
Poplar street, and he died a few hours
later at the Lackawanna hospital. The
deceased waa employed as a wiper at
the Green Ridge round house. A train
of coal cars was passing and In at
tempting to get on he stumbled and fell
beneath the wheels. The left leg was
crushed to a pulp between the ankle
and knee; there was a serious lacerated
wound in the back, and his body was
very badly bruised.. The cause of his
death was the shock which resulted.
Several cars passed over him. He was
taken to the Green Ridge depot on the
train and from there to the hospital in
the ambulance. He did not rally and
died In two hours. Tbe body was re
moved at 9 o'clock' t6 his to his home.

family. The remains were removed
from the hospital to his late home. Ar
rangements for the funeral have not
yet been made.
Sha Was Bronght Dcforo the Board of
Charities at Its Meeting.
One of the first things the Board of
Associated Charities did at its meeting
last night was to dispose of a little
Impostor whom Mrs. Duggan picked up
on ner way to anend the meeting.
The Impostor is a 10-year-old girl
named Rose UabotchnleK, of Raymond
court, who goes about late at night
selling matches and working on the
sympathies of the people with a story
that if she does not dispose of all her
matches her father will whip her and
send ner to bed without any supper.
In nearly every case the little one
leaves the house or store, as the case
may be, with her stock of matches un
diminished and the price -of the whole
basketfull tucked away in her pocket.
Mra. Duggan had received several in
quiries about her, and upon looking un
her case, discovered that her father
owns a horse and wagon and is In
every way able to support her without
compelling her to go out begging. So
last night when the little match ped
dler accldcntly selected Mrs. Duggan
for a victim she ran iier head "into a
trap. Mr. Kelly, of the child saving
committee, with the authorization of
the board. Bent the girl home in the
custody of a pollce officer with a mes
sage to her father to the effect that If
the child was again caught begging
the board would take steps to have her
removed from his charge.
Rev. Rogers Israel reported that Col
onel Ripple, T. J. Moore and himself,
the committee appointed to consider
tho advisability and feasibility of es.
tabllshlng a Wayfarers' Lodge, had dis
cussed the matter and concluded that
it would not bo advisable to take any
steps in that direction until next fall.

Rescue Mission, had expressed will

pnrt of the board of charities work
which came under his direction during
his term of office, which report has been
printed In full In The Tribune, was sub'
mltted to the board last night and or
dered made part of the records. While
the report was under consideration T.
J. Kelly, chairman of the child saving
committee, and Mrs. Duggan, agent of
the hoard, testified to the ex-mayor's
many acts of kindness and his con'
stant readiness to do everything In his
power to aid the board and Its work
Several Instances were cited to show
the deep Interest which he evlne.d In
the work, nnd Mr. Kelly went bo far
as to say that ex-Mayor Connell had
virtually established the board, Mr.
Gibbons provoked' applause with the
remark: "He couldn't help being In
