murdered by George Van Horn, was
Westcott's wife, and Van Horn the de

Mr. Leyshon brought about the ar

sitting in court one day last week
listening to an ordinary assault and
battery case In which the parties con

One of the witnesses was a woman and
in her testimony she seemed averse to

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

and brought to Wllkes-Barre jail.
Sivruta was upstairs when his compan
