TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF.
The Store Crowded All the Time.
The closlng-out sale of groceries at
the Seranton Cash Store Is attracting
buyers from up and down the valley, as
well as from every quarter of the city.
Nor Is It to be wondered at when you
think of the prices the goods are being

Cash Store never does things by halves.
TONIGHT'S COUNCIL MEETING.
Many Important .flatters Are to Come
If there is a meeting of select coun
cil tonight, the regular meeting night,
which at tho present writing seems
quite pro'oalde, there will be s,ine Inter
Mayor Bailey will send in the name of
George 8. Horn to succeed Colonel K.
II. Ripple a member of the board of
health. Colonel Ripple's term having
expired. The mayor has an Idea that
Dr. W. A. Paine Is not entitled to sit on
the board because of his selection as a
member of the poor board, but His
Honor is not so strongly intrenched in
this belief that he will as yet venture
Upon displacing him. That he has the
Idea, hontver. is evidenced by the fact
that he has declined to administer the
oath of office to Secretary. Walter
Hrlggs alleging that he Is not satisfied
that the board of health's organization,
was conducted legally. Mr. Jiriggs
ays that he will take the oath of of-

Police matters will also figure exten

Delaware and Hudson Canal Company
Trying to Prevent Trolley Road from
Crossing at Grade at Olypbant.
An equity suit was begun yesterday
by the Delaware and Hudson Railroad
company against the Lackawanna Val
ley Traction compny and the Olyphunt
Suburban Traction company praying
ftran Injunction to restrain the defend
ants from crossing Dunmore and Hud
son streets at grade Intersecting at
these points the tracks of the plaintiff
company. Judge Guaister granted a
special writ of Injunction and made it
returnable for uigument at 9 a. m.
Wednesday, July 18.
Jessups & Hand represent the plain
tiff and in the bill of equity It is al
leged that there are from 120 to 140
trains passing dally over the crossing.
Some of these trains are run at a htgh
rate of speed, and others of them are
long being made up of freight and
coal cars which do not stop at Olyphant
and In addition to the above there are
during- the summer season from two to
four tcurslon trains running dally over
this portion of their road and not
stopping at these points but running
at a high rate of speed, and frequently
running In return from the excursion
after night fall, thereby adding much
tr the danger of a grade crossing.
There are besides the many trains
which pass, many single engines en
gaded In switching cars, running back
and forth at different times and that
these two crossing especially, ure dan
gerous, the one at Dumnore street by
reason of the view of the railroad being
obstructed by buildings as the street
car would approach from the easterly
direction; and at the Hudson street
crossing the railroad passes around a
culm batik on a curve, so that the ap
proach to that crossing cannot be seen
from any great distance.
The plaintiff suggests to the court
that a crossing undergrade or overhead
at bcth places Is not only prac ticable
and feasible but will not entail any
groRt expense upjn the defendant com
panies. That an expenditure of about
$16,000 will construct either subways or
overhead crossings and that such ex
pense would not be burdensume.
The plaintiff also alleges that the
street railway company has no legal
rlifht to lay its tracks upon the streets
of Olyphant, not having the consent of
TO SINQ THE MIKADO.
Wilkcs-llurrc Sinner Will Try to
Swell Twin Slnilt Fund.
The production of the opera "Mikado"
at the Frothingham on July 23. by the
Cardan Glee club, of WIlkes-Barre, for
the benefit of the Twin shaft disaster
fund should bring out a large audience.
The opera will also be produced in
Wllkts-Barre for the same worthy ob
ject, both of the theatres having been
given free of charge for the productions
of the opera.
This opera was put on a few years
ago In Wllkes-Barre by the same or
ganization and was received with great
favor. The Wllkes-Barro Record said
at the time: "It was never sung better
by a professloncl company In Wllkes
Barre. The principals and chorus won
the greatest praise." The opera is
stnged under the Immediate super
vision of Joseph P. Burns, formerly a
member of the Duff Opera company.
Mr. Burns also sings the role of Poo
Bah. The Delaware and Hudson Canul
company has agreed to furnish free
transportation for the seventy mem
bers of the company from Wllkes
Barre to Seranton and return.

HE IS SUPPOSED
TO BE JOHN GOUSE
Man Being Held at Mahanoy City to
Await Identification. .
THE CHARGE MADE AGAINST HIM
Accused of Killing Hi Father, August
Gouse. at Archbald in September,
199 Weapon Lied Was the Iron
Stand of a Shoemaker's LastOne
Man Tried Tor the Crime and
A man supposed to be John Gouse,
who murdered his father, August Gouse,
at Archbald on Sept. 10, 1894, Is in cus
tody at Mahanoy City and County De
tective Leyshon and Constable John
McHale, of Archbald, started for that
place yesterday afternoon to Identify
the man, and if he Is Gouse to bring him
back here for trial.
On the night on which August Gouse,
who wai nearly sixty years of age, re
ceived the Injuries that proved fatal the
son disappeared. Since then officers of
the law have been on the lookout for
him. Soon after the killing the mur
dered man's wife removed to Carbon
dale and about a year ago District At
torney Jones received Information to the
effect that John Gouse was at his
mother's house. One. Sunday evening,
with County Detective Leyshon and De
tective Michael Moran, lie went to Mrs.
Gouse's home, but the son had left two
hours before, going in the direction of
Salem. Search was made for several
days In the country surrounding Car
bondale. but no trace ot him could be
Tuesday Postmaster John O'Rourke,
of Archbald, received a letter from Jus
tice of the Peace O'Brien, of Mahanoy
City, stating tnat a man was In custody
who was supposed to be John Gouse,
wanted in Lackawnna county for mur
der. ASKED TO HOLD HIM.
This letter was turned over to Justice
of the Peace Uildea. who wired the
Mahanoy City authorities to hold Gouse
until they should hear further from him.
A response to the telegram came yester
day stating that the man would be held
and Mr. Glldea at once came to this city
and notified the district attorney and
the county commissioners, with the re
sult that the county detective and con
stable McHale were dispatched to
The crime with which John Gouse
stands charged Is one of great brutal
ity. The Gouses lived In a basement
In Archbald, the family consisting of
the father and mother and John, who Is
twenty-five years of age. With them
boarded Joseph Hlmlntskl and Jacob
Skarooka. On Saturday, Sept. 10, 18l'4,
the whole party had been drinking free
ly and were making a good deal of noise.
About 10 o'clock old man Gouse said
he was going out to get an officer to put
an end to the wrangling, as he was
tired of the noise. He returned some
time later and a short while afterwards
the other tenants of the house heard
him groaning and on going Into the
Gouse apartments found him lying on
the Moor with his skull fractured, sev
eral ribsbroken and nine stab wounds
In his body. He died a few days later,
the fractured skull being the in.niediate
cause of his demise.
DISAPPEARANCE OF SON.
John Gouse disappeared on the night
of the fight and Joseph Rimlnlski, one
of the boarders, was arrested on a
charge of murder. The knife the stab
bing was done with could not be found
but the weapon with which the skull
was fractured, the iron stand of a shot
maker's last, was turned over to Dls
trict Attorney Jones and Is still In his
possession. A few days after the arrest
of Rimlnlski his wife arrived In this
country from Poland and her fears for
the safety of her husband were pity
inspiring. She was convinced that he
would be hanged.
On Feb. 12, 1S95. Rimlnlski was ar
raigned for his participation In the mur
der, but owing to the brilliant defense
made for him by Attorney M. A. Mc-
Glnley he was acquitted. During the trial
the origin of the fight which resulted In
the murder was not satisfactorily ex
plained, nor was It shown who inflicted
the nine stab wounds. Although it was
advanced as the theory of the defense
that Mrs. Gouse was the guilty per
sen. It is probable that the fight was a
direct outcome of the Jealousy old man
Gouse had for some time displayed over
what he conceived to be the more than
Platonic friendship of Mrs. Gouse for
Rimlnlski. All of 'he tenants on the
first floor of the building said on the
trial that after the first noise of the
fight had subsided they saw John Gouse
and RimlniBkl standing outside of the
house and Rimlnlski said to Gouse:
"Let's go In and finish the old man
whereupon they both re-entered the
blldlng. The sound of blows followed.
BROUGHT BACK LAST NIGHT.
It was the testimony of Jacob Ska
rooka that In all probability saved Ri
mlnlski from a term In the penitentiary
He was lying on a bed in a room open
ing off the kitchen when he saw John
Gouse enter the room, pick up a piece
of Iron and hit his father over the head
The old man Immediately sank to the
At 10 o'clock last night Gouse was
brought to Seranton and lodged in the
county Jail. He was sufficiently Identi
fied before leaving Mahanoy City. Offi
cer James Russell, of that place, and
Constable McHale. of Olyphant, deliv
ered him over to Night Warden T. J.
Price at the Jail, and Gouse will now
await trial for parricide.

THEY MAY GET
THAT BACK PAY
Seranton Letter Carriers Are Now Hope
ful of Ultimate Success.
AN INSPECTOR HAS BEEN HERE
The Understanding Is That the
Claimants Will Receive One and
Threequnrtcr Hours I'.vtra Time
for Each Day They Were on Duly.
Some of Them Will Receive as High
The Seranton letter carriers have re
ceived almost positive assurance that
they will receive the back pay for which
they have been contending for the past
five or Blx years. Two government In
spectors connected with the post office
department were in the city last week
looking Into the claims and from their
necessarily guarded expressions the'
carriers were assured of success.
These claims for back pay are the re
sult of the adoption of the eight hour
law which went into effect during the
term that the late Hon. D. W. Con
nolly was postmaster. The letter car
riers here had been working more than
eight hours and no change could be
made In their hours for several years
owing to the fact that the force was
too small to permit of their duties being
lessened. In the Interval between the
passage of the law and the time when
the eight hour system was put Into ef
fect here, which was In the neighbor
hood of three years, every carrier on
the force worked a couple of hours ex
tra time every day.
THEY ARE NOT ALONE.
The same state ot affairs existed In
other citiee and the result was a gen
eral movement for extra compensation
for this overtime. The carriers in a
number of cities had such clear cases
against the government that they had
no dilnculty in collecting the back pay.
Inspired by the success of these claim
ants, the carriers of other cities, In
cluding those of Seranton, engaged ct
rorneys In Washington to urge their
claims and the conseguence Is that all
over the country tho carriers who
served during these years are receiving
neat sums, which ore in the shape of
veritable wiljd-fajls, as there were the
gravest doubts about the success of
Some of th'o Seranton carriers were
so dubious about It that thoy disposed
of their claims for little or nothing nnd
now some of the mor confident ones
who bought up these claims on specula
tion will realise handsomely from their
WHAT HEY WILL RECEIVE.
The understanding In this city Is that
the claimants) will receive one and
three-quarters hours' extra tlmj for
each day they wera on duty. As It was
a raither stupendous undertaking to
figure out the exact tunc worked bv
each carrier during the three years In
question, the inspectors) examined five
of the carriers' time books and sub
jected tho same live, to a personal 'In
vestigation, from which they made the
estimate above noted.
If the government will acree to ue
cept the recommendation of the Inspeo.
tors the carriers will be satisfied, feme
of them, according to this one-niid-three-q
aarters-hours-a-doy basis, will
be entitled to as high as $300 back pay.

ing to the plaintiff for ballast and other
On April 4, 1S92, the Morris and Essex
company by its agent, AVlllIam Ropp, of
Old Forge, filed a petition in court for
the appointment of a board of viewers
to estimate the amount of damage due
for the taking of the culm heap. Last
January, however, the case came to trial
In No. 2 court room before Judge All
bright, Ex-Judge G. M. Harding and
his son. Attorney John M. Harding, of
v Ilkes-Iiarrc, and City Solicitor Torrey
represented the plaintiff: Major Everett
Warren, Hon. C. P. O'Malley and ex
Judge Knapp appeared for the defend
ant. The defendant had two grounds of de
fense; one was that the culm was taken
with the leave of the Morris and Essex
company, who were glad to have the
land on which it stood cleared, and the
second reason was that the culm was
taken in 1S82 and 1SS3. which was more
than six years from the beglnnlngof the
suit and that recovery for any damages
was barred by the statute of limita
tions. The Jury found a verdict for the de
fendant, and Judge Allbrlght. after
healing argument for a new trial re
fuses to disturb the verdict.
