Four members of the dead line gang
of Uellevue who, on the night previous,
made a burglarious raid on Plttsto i
stores, were run down in this city yes
terduy after a series of exciting adven
tures. Thi-y are Frank Mangan, alUs
"Hunches;" John Miller, Michael Judge
and John Hrown, alius Louis Brown.
M or gun is twenty-two years of age and
lives on Fifth street. Miller in twenty

Kingstun. Judge is twenty-two nnd
lives on Third street. He is a one
armed man and was Janitor of a hall
in Uellevue. Hrown, the youngest of
the gang, is nineteen and lived on Mer
idian street, near the Oxford breaker.
None of them could be truthfully sa'd

Of late men have been held up and
robbed almost every night In Hellevue
and other districts of the southern part
of the city. Small stores and residences
were, also frequently entered and theso,
with vnrloutt other depredations, led the
police to conclude that the dtad line
which terrorized that locality some
years ago had sprung up again. The
four arrested yesterday were anions
those under suspicion of being impli
cated in these affairs; In fact, warrants
have been out for some of them for
several days. The fact that they were

.OPERATIONS IN PITTSTON.
Just when they went to Tittston la
not known, but it Is supposed from the
numerous robberies in Pittston proper
and West Pittston during the last week
or so that they have been hanging
around there for that length of time, or
that they have been muklng frequent
trips there from their rendezvous nt the?
Hellevue drift, stealing rides on tho
Delaware, Lackawanna anil Western
coal trains which pass tho mouth of the
mine opening. Heretofore they cun
llned themselves to lesser depredations,
such as entering residences and small
stores, but It seems Wednesday night
they resolved upon a grand coup, ee
lectlnjr the Btores on Main street for
They first uttempted to enter Nnthnn
Lubson's Jewelry Btore at 4X1 North
Main street, but were scared away
after they hud broken down the safety
gates leading to the front doors. They
next attacked and succeeded In enter
ing the second-hand clothing store of
M. Kowalsky, 4!):i North Main street,
where they secured clothing valued at
$200. The candy store of Mrs. L. (1.
Ilildoner. on Susquehanna avenue, was
looted, as was nlso the generul store of
J. Freed, on Main street, arter which
they started for the Junction, where
they stole whiskey and cigars from
John Ormsby's saloon und mudo an at
tempt to do the' same at the saloon of
Mr. Kane heard sumoone below in
the barroom and going down met a
mun half-way up the stairs. He
grabbed the Intruder, but the fellow
broke away and made his escupe. Kane
followed, but was arrested on the porch
by twi pistol shots, one of which
whizzed close to his car anil crashed
through a plate glass window in the
front of the saloon. He says that there
were three men outside and that they
carried two large bundles und a valise.
RATTLE AT LACKAWANNA.
The next heard of the quartette is nt
Lackawanna, where they hud nn en
counter with the crew of a railroad
train which overtook them nt that
point. Hefore leaving Pittston the
railroad men had heard of the burg
laries and learned the description of the
burglars from Proprietor Kune. While
doing some switching at Lackawanna,
one of the brakemen, who is a Pitts
ton sppclal officer, espied a one-armed
man standing along the track and rec
ognizing him by this, as one of the
four for whom they were keeping a
lookout, grabbed him and proceeded to
march him back to the caboose.
Judge, for it was he, called out
"Bunches," and Mangan and the other
two came running out of a tool shanty
near by and rescued their pal. The
other trainmen were hurrying to the
aid of the special officer, but they were
checked and forced to take refuge be
hind the cars by reason of a furious
fusilade of bullets from the pistols of
three of the robbers.
About 6.110 o'clock a. m. word was
telephoned to the central police station
that a gang of tramps were in the
neighborhood of the Hellevue mule
barn. The patrol wagon was manned
and dispatched to the scene, but the offi
cers returned with the report that the
tramps could not be located. They had
no sooner gotten back than a telephone
message was received from Chief of
Police Loftus, of Pittston, announcing
the robberies and the fact that the
thieves had started for Scranton nnd
were presumably there by that time.
The earlier report of the tramps being
seen nt the Hellevue gave them a clue
on which to begin work. Chief Holding
dispatched mounted officer Dyer and
Patrolmen Day, Feeney, Duggan, Saul,
Schmltt and I. F. Jones to scour the
region about the mine and watch the
railroads entering the southern end of
WERE THE SAME MEN.
It developed that the tramps seen
about the mule barn and the quartette
of robbers were Identical. The advent
of the patrol wagon alarmed them and
caused them to hide. They evidently
saw the wagon from their place of con
cealment and determined to hide their
booty and scatter. They selected the
Bellevue culm dump and while en
gaged in burying the plunder, a brake
man on a passing train, to whom all
ftiur were known, saw them. When
the police got down there on their sec
ond trip he hunted them up and tqld
what he had seen. The four were
known to the most of the officers and
as they could not have gotten far away
the- hunt for them was begun with
much confidence. ..
First of all the culm pile was visited
and there two bundles of clothing were
dug up. They were wrapped in pieces
of canvas used for covering goods on
store counters, and were being scorched
by the fire In the dump when the offi
cers unearthed them. There were live
coats, five vests and three pairs of
pants In the two packages. The third
package, which the thieves had been
seen carrying, -was accounted for by
the fact that each of them donned a
new suit, which developed Upon their
being taken' into custody.
At 11 o'clock. Officer Dyer came In
with MangaiC 4'hom he captured after
one of the most rstcMIng chases record
ed In the police annals, of the city. Dyer
on horseback And Day on his bicycle,
were scouting about Btllevue when they
espied Mangan and a companion whom
they failed to recognise, turning a cor
ner near Elm street bridge. They saw
the ollicers and broke Into a. run. Day
started to head them off and Dyer
started after them. They darted be
tween tvu houses, where the officer
could not follow on horseback, and for
a time were lost sight of. By making
a rapid detour the otllcer came upon his
man running behind a trip of cars.
Mangan started down the track with
the officer galloping after. Just as he
was about to be overtaken Mangan
ran up the bank and took to the culm
domp. Dyer took a diagonal course and
by urging his horse succeeded in mak
ing him climb the steep sides of the
AN EXCITING CHASE.
Then began an exciting chase across
the top of the huge black mound. Again
the horse came up with the fugitive
and again ho eluded capture by plung
ing down the side of the dump. The
horse could not take a direct course
and Mangan thereby gained another
lead. When horse and rider after a
perilous descent finally reached the
ground Mangan had a start of 200
yards and was running like a deer down
the Jersey Central track. Again the
pursuer and pursued were almost
abreast of each other. Before Dyer,
could rein-In and dismount however,
the frenzied fugitive dashed up the
railroad embankment and down the
other side into the river. After him
was Dyer on his horse. Mangan
waded across, climbed the stone wall
on the opposite side and attempted to
scale a twelve foot fence surrounding
Central Park Onrden.
Dyer had dismounted after fording
the river and was climbing the stone
wall when Mangan Jumped into the
river und started back again for the
other side.. Dyer was on his horse,
which had not budged from the spot
where he had been left and again the
chase through the river took place.
Mangan gained the opposite side a few
yards in advance of the officer, ran
along the bunk und Just as the officer
gained the shore plunged buck Into
the river again. This time the officer
galloped his horse into the water, forced
him us hard as he could go, and by
taking an oblique course came down
upon the now thoroughly fatigued fu
gitive will) u rush. Mangan turned upon
the otllcer, despite his threat to run
him down if he did not surrender, nnd
there In mid-stream in nearly four feet
of water a desperate battle ensued.
It was short-lived, however, for with
a well directed blow from his club the
officer opened Mangan's scalp and
caused him to stagger and reel like a
drunken man. Once he sank but came
up, and hulf-waded and half-fell to
where the water was shallow where he
sank into a sitting posture with his
head clasped bet ween his hands. A citi
zen who was watching the proceeding
from the river bank waded in and
drugged 0t now subdued Mangan to
tile bunk where he was handcuffed.
After coming to full consciousness Of
ficer Dyer took him to the station
CAPTURE OF THE OTHERS.
Millar was the second of the quar
tette to be brought in. Patrolman
Schmidt and Duggun got on his trail
about !) o'clock und at 11.30 bagged him
In the Twentieth ward. Judge was
found boldly standing In a crowd on
the Hellevue crossing. Dyer, Day and
Feeney escorted htm in. Hrown wns
found asleep on a lounge at his father's
home on Meridian Htreet. Each of the
prisoners had on a new hat and some
new article of clothing, two of them be
ing attired in full new regalia, with the
tugs still undetached.
Officer- Dyer and Patrolmen Feeney
and Day made a tour through the Belle
vue drift during the afternoon, but
found no booty. Traces of goods hav
ing been stored there were in abund
ance, boxes, package covers and the
like strewing the ground. One of the
bosses nt the mine told the police he had
heard It rumored that a crowd of boys
had come upon the robbers' plunder the
day before while exploringtheold work
ings and that they had curried it away.
The rough beds of culm and leaves upon
which the gang slept were discovered
by tho ollicers.
Hotel Keeper Kane, Clothier Kowal
pky, Chief Loftus and the railroaders
mentioned have been summoned to the
hearing this morning, when it will be
determined whether or not they will be
turned over to the Luzerne county authorities.

Method of Doing IL
LEFT IN THE HANDS OF THE MAYOR
Resolution Introduced to Have a
Committee Appointed to Look Into
tho Charge Published Charging the
Street Commissioner with Using
Hit Own Team on the Streets.
Communication From Ei3Iayor
Common Councilman Gllroy, at last
night's meeting, introduced the follow
ing resolution, written by City Editor
M. J. O'Toole, of the Times:
Resolved, That it is unlawful for the
street commissioner of the city to use on
street work, horses, teams, or other ma
terial belonging to himself; and the presi
dent of common council Is hereby re
milred to appoint a committee of five
members to ascertain if the present street
commissioner is so engaged, and report
the same back to council.
Mr. Nealts moved that It bereferred to
the mayor. Mr. Uilroy then sprung
this bit of logic. Charges have appeared
In some of the newspapers against Mr.
Kinsley and it Is the duty of council to
make an Investigation. Council was
not altogether willing to view the mat
ter that way much to Mr. Gilroy's
chagrin. Mr. Neulis thought the mayor
Is the proper person to investigate and
Mr. Flannghan agreed with the gentle
man from the Fourteenth.
Mr. Oilroy got up again nnd em
phasized the statement that council
has full power to look Into the case, and
the findings should be laid before the
public. Mr. Nealls went on then to ex
plain why he wunted the mayor to go
ahead with the Investigation. Mr. Kins
ley belongs to the mayor's cabinet, and
his Honor might be offended if coun
cils should do anything before the
cuse was referred to him.
Mr. McGrail arose from behind a
dense cloud of smoke from u black
wooden pipe and set the council cham-

oiei it,e nun nil asni-i null lu mc iriiri:i
that some of the members are getting
virtuous right away in a, hurry, after
seeing similar actions for years back.
CAPTAIN MOIRS OPINION.
Captain Moir thought thut the mayor
should investigate the matter first;
or else if Mr. Oilroy wanted council to
act, he should make his resolution a
concurrent one, and let both branches
have a say in the matter, not make
It a matter for the common council to
take up singly. He questioned whether
the lower branch would be going about
It lawfully If it went it alone.
Mr. Nealls' motion wus put und
carried, the only dissenting vote being
Mr. Gilroy's. Mr. Zeldler then intro
duced this resolution:
"Kesolved, by the common council
of the city of Scranton, select council
concurring, thut the mayor be und Is
hereby directed to Investigate the af
fairs of tho street commissioner's de
partment and report to clly councils
whether the business thereof is con
It vb also referred to the mayor. Un
der the order of business reluting to
communications from the mayor und
the heuds of departments the following
communication was received und
placed on tile:
To tho Honorable, the Select and Com
mon Councils of the City of Scranton:
I have this day paid over to the city by

amount is made, up 'largely of deposits
made by prisoners und forfeited, ami l.y

which could not, because of the Irregular
periods at which they were collected, he
included In the monthly reports. This
amount makes a total of $10,817,27 collected
through the police court and turned over
to the city treasurer during the past three
years. 1 am, very truly yours,

The following bids were read propos
ing to grade Larch street: Peter Mul

M. J. Gibbons, $1.73 a foot, basins $100
and manholes $75 extra; A. Alenyetta,
$3,825 all complete. They were referred
to committee with orders to award the
contract to the lowest responsible bid
der. Captain Moir as chairman of the Ju
diciary committee reported that the
claim of Mathew Hayes against the
city can be settled for $1,300 and the
committee recommended that the set
tlement be made on this basis. The re
port was approv ed. Mr. Hayes has a
claim against the city of about $l,r0
and he is willing to take $1,300 if the
amount be paid without going to the
expense of a trial in court. City So
licitor Torrey gave an opinion on the
case that Hayes' claim Is a Just one
and that If it goes to trial he will, no
doubt, 'get it In full with Interest and
costs. Under this condition the settle
ment by the committee Is saving the
city a good deal of money.
Ordinances which passed third read
ing were: Providing for an electric
light midway on Linden street bridge;
providing for the construction of a sew
er on Kellum court and Webster ave
