EDISON'S LATEST WONDER,
First Vublic Exhibition of the Vita
scope at the Frothia.ham.
Edison's wonderful vltascope had Its
first public exhibition In Scranton last
nisht at the FrothlnBham. There was
a large audience present. The vlta
scope is certainly one of the most mar.
velnus of the many marvels that W le
an! TCUison has given to the world. Last
nlsht the umbrella dance of the Mar
rablo sisters, as given at Koster and
Dial's, In New York; a fine scene with
firemen rescuing people from a burning
building; a dance from the opera Rob
Hoy; a surf scene taken at Dover, Eng
land, and the famous kissing scene from
the Widow Jones, In which May Irwlti
takes such a conspicuous part, were
shown, all of the figures life size. The
ocean scene was most realistic and gave
probably the best evidence of the possU
btlltles of the vltascope. The waves
could be seen fur some distance rolling
inward, finally breaking on the beach
In a mass of white foam. It needed but
a little use of the imagination to hear
the boom of the breakers and feel the
The vltascope Is not the only feature
of the entertainment that Manager
Jones hoe provided. A good vaudeville
entertainment Is given by a number of
artists, the most clever probably being
"Flora," who rivals Lole Fuller with
her Are dance, butterfly dance and
other nqveltles. "Flora" carries her
own electrician, C. E. McKenale, with
her and makes an elaborate use of elec
tric lights. Some ot her dances are exe
cuted on a large plate of gloss, which
forms part of the stage floor. Under
this white ' and colored Incandescent
lights are placed, which throw a flood
of light up through the glass, adding
to the beauty and novelty of the effects.
Other features ot the entertainment
were Introduced by Frank Latona, the
musical (tramp; Marie Winsome, sou
brette; George L. Gordon, vocalist;
Brady and Parker, who give a travesty;
Annie Whitney, vocalist. Her song
about McKinley, the man who Is "good
enough for me," was received with
round after round of applause. Tho
programme opened with a burlesque on
"Pygmallan and Galatea," by Harry
Kennedy, John J. Kennedy, Leonore
Hassan and Marie Wlnson. The enter
tainment and the vltascope exhibition
will be repeated every afternoon and
evening this week. New features will

from day to day and changes will be

ersPernliar Case Frosa Dale
villeA Constable's Contact.
The most sensational case of the
many heard In Alderman Millar's
court yesterday was the one In which
Dr. William Haggerty was charged
with stabbing Patrick Corcoran, the
Cedar avenue saloon keeper.
It appears that the doctor and Cor
coran were part ot a little gathering
who were drinking In a Spruce street
place during the afternoon and for some
small cause engaged In a dispute which
led to angry words and then an assault
In which the doctor slashed Corcoran on
the right side of the neck with a small
pen knife. The wound bled profusely,
but was not serious.
After he had the tut dressed Cor
coran went before Alderman Millar and
swore out a warrant charging aggra
vated assault and battery. The doctor
was arrested and upon being arraigned
entered ball in the sum of $500 for his
appearance at court.
He then turned around and Bvore out
Information against Corcoran charg
ing him with Helling without a license,
selling on Sundays and selling to mi
nors. Corcoran gave ball In the sum of
$ouo, $200 on each charge.
During the hearing It was feared sev
eral times that the men would come to
blows, both being violently angry and
In a mood to possibly do something
desperate. Dr. Haggerty declared that
Corcoran had Insulted his wife and that
he would kill him. An outbreak was,
C. W. ROESLER ARRESTED.
About 4 o'clock In the afternoon a well
dressed, quiet looking gentleman, giving
his name as George Jewell, came in to
Alderman Millar and complained that
he had been shamefully treated by some
old man on Franklin avenue. He was
walking along the street, he said,' and
In passing this old man's residence re
ceived a drenching from a hose with
which the aforesaid old man was
sprinkling the lawn. It was very ag
gravating to be mistaken for a lawn
by a man with a sprinkling hose, and
turning about after picking up his hat
called out, "Old man, you ought to be
more careful." At this the old man, he
says, came rushing out of the gate and
saying that although he was 74 he lidn't
take "sass" from anybody, gave his
drenched victim a blow In the face.
The complainant, being a stranger In
the city, did not know the name of his
assailant, so the warrant was made out
for Richard Roe. Imagine the surprise
of Alderman Millar when a little later
his predecessor, ex-Alderman C. W.
Roesler, was arraigned before him as
tho Richard Roe charged as above
stated. There was a prima facie case
established and having no choice In the
matter the alderman had to hold the
venerable 'squire In $200 bail to answer
at court. Mr.' Roesler alleges that Jew
ell first attempted to strike him with
an umbrella and that he struck back in
self-defense. Jewell says he did not
strike or attempt to strike a blow either
before or after the assault, because of
his assailant's gray hairs.
ANOTHER CUTTING AFFRAY.
A second stabbing affray developed In
the evening. When the alderman re
turned from supper about 7 o'clock he
found awaiting him an Hungarian who
was literally covered with blood down
to his waist. He had been cut on the
top of the head with a knife by a fellow
countryman during a fight in Johnson's
patch, only a short time previous, and
without waiting to see a doctor or any
body else hastened to get a warrant for
his assailant's arrest. The aldermun
sent Specials Tlerney and Byer to hunt
up the man who did the cutting and
directed the wounded man to go to a
doctor and get repaired, which he did.
Up to a late hour the officers had not
returned from their hunt.
Deputy Sheriff Bortree was sent out
to Dalevllle with warrants for the art
rest of "Gyp" Warner and Jay Hurley,
who are charged by Mr. Eppstein, a
peddler of this city, with a rather odd
sort .of a charge. According to Epp
stein's story he was driving through
Dalevllle Thursday when Hurley, who
is the village blacksmith, and "Gyp"
Warner, who Is known about the town
to be "a good piece of a man." held him
up and dickered with him for the pur
chase of all the old Iron that was around
the blacksmith shop.
Eppstein offered them $4 and It was
accepted. He only had $2 with him so
It was agreed that each of them should
take a pair ot his nobby $1 trowsers In
place of the other $2. Eppstein paid
over the money and trousers and was
getting down from the wagon to load
on the Iron when he was told to make
himself scarce. As the village black
smith and the man Warner who Is
said to be "a good piece of a man,"
acted as If they meant what they said,
and looked as If they could moke It In
teresting for a man who did not heed
what they said, Eppstein obeyed their
Yesterday he was In Dalevllle again
and meeting Warner tried to induce him
to return the dollar and the dollar
trousers. Warner, he says, thereupon
assaulted him and gave him a shame
ful beating. All ot which. Is why Sheriff
Bortree will be In Dalevllle today.

Mrs. Jenkins to go on the fishing trip

Week AgoIdentiSed by the
Clothes He WoreHe Left His
Home on the South Side Two
The mystery of the disappearance of
Joseph Parr, of Cedar avenue, who lert
home on Wednesday, May 27, has been
solved. His remains are now resting
in the cemetery at the Ransom poor
On Sunday evening, June 14, George
White and Alonzo Fry, ot Avoca, were
homeward bound from Campbell's
Ledge and at the foot ot the mountain
they came upon tho decomposed body
of a man lying among the rocks and
brush about thirty feet trom the road.
On the rocks above, thirty feet away,
a hat was found, and near the hat was
a small tree from which dangled a few
feet of thin rope.
The body was badly decomposed and
swollen to an abnormal size, but on ex
amining it the men found that a rope
was fastened around the neck and that
it was broken off a few Inches from the
knot. The rope was Just like the piece
found on the tree. From this fact it
was taken fur granted that the de
ceased had hanged himself to the tree
and that some time later the weight of
his body broke the rope and the body
fell down to where It was discovered.
HELD AN INQUEST.
Squire Gllboy, of Duryea, was noti
fied of the case and empanelled a Jury
consisting of Postmaster M.F.Corcoran,
J. B. Gilboy, William Riddle, R. C. Mo
tiska, F. K. Dills and Frank Stark, all
of that place. The deceased was
dressed In clothes which might be taken
for those of a tramp and the jury con
cluded that' he wae such. Poor Direc
tor Setbel, of Duryea, ordered that the
body be Interred In the cemetery at the
Ransom poor farm.
The death of the supposed tramp was
about forgotten In Duryea, but the
clothes he had on were kept In charge
of Squire Gllboy for fear that some
day there might be some one wishing to
see them In hopes of tracing a missing
relative. He reckoned wisely.
Sunday morning Andrew J. Best,
the Cedar avenue hotel keeper, was
reading the Free Press and In the
Duryea correspondence he saw a no
tice of the finding of the body. Mr.
Parr had lived with' his son-in-law,
Philip Smith, in the rear of Hotel Best,
and the latter was notified of the finding
ot a dead body at Campbell's Ledge.
THEY WENT TO DURYEA.
Mr. Best and Mr. Smith drove to
Duryea to Inspect the clothes. The first
thing shown them was the hat the dead
man wore, and one glance was sufficient
to convince them that the body was
that of Mr. Parr. The hat had been
purchased at the store of the Lacka
wanna Iron and Steel company. The
rest of the clothing was readily recog
nized, as well as a pair of spectacles, a
pocketbook containing fifteen cents, and
a box of salve which were found in the
pockets. He had on two pairs of pan
taloons a light colored vest, a faded
brown coat, and a woolen shirt.
Squire Gilboy then described the de
ceased as a man apparently 60 years
of age, sandy hair with a bald spot In
front, C feet 9 Inches tall, and quite
fleshy. This fitted Mr. Parr exactly and
his son-in-law and Mr. Best left without
any doubt but that he was the man.
Mr. Parr everybody says who knew
htm, was as honest a man as ever lived.
Before he left home he went around
among the people with whom he dealt
and paid every cent ho owed. He also
suld then that In three or four days he
would trouble this world no more. These
threats of suicide impressed his rela-
