One of the witnesses was a woman and in her testimony she seemed averse to saying anything about some one. Mr. Leyshon judged from her manner that whoever she was trying to shield must be guilty of something, and he started an investigation, which led to the ar rest. Sokoloskie was beaten so severely with stones that he died in four days from his Injuries. There were two oth ers; in the fight and they were arrested and brought to Wllkes-Barre jail.
