short address. He wu. jirmid to oner
his congratulations to Mr. ConncM and
he wished him abundant success with

Mr. Connell responded and said he
was profoundly grateful for the compli
ment the people of Lackawanna county
hurt bestowed upon him. This cam
paign was to him fraught with the
greatest anxiety, preuter than any oth
er one he was concerned in. The teach
ings of the free sliver men would lead
to disaster. And the rich as well as the
poor would feel it, for one cannot suf
fer Independently of the other.
When llryan's arguments ran out he
turned to arouse the passions and the
pr"Juillces of the people, ad anyone
who does that Is a dangerous man. Sir.
Connell said he was never afrnid of
the vote of the thinking citizen. When
a mnn would sit down and think, he
generally came to the correct conclu
sion nbout this matter.
He wns glad as a Republican that
MeKinley was elected president; but
as a citizen he wns glad that right pre
vailed. The men who tore down the
Hag in the campaign just pnded would
plunge this country into a condition
similar to that In France when there
was such a violent uprising. Hut the
matter is now In the paft, and Sir.
Connell -trusted that It would stay

County Floats Its $90,000 Issue Without
Trouble at a Handsome Premium.
Five Proposals Were Received.
The sale of the county bonds by the
commissioners yesterday was a strlkins
Instance of the beneficent result of Mc
Klnley's election, liefore election they
could not tet a taker; yesterday there
were plenty of bidders, und the premi
um received was the highest ever of
fered fur bonds since the county was es
tablished. The Issue Is to be to the amount of
$U0.OO0. The bonds will liear interest nt
4 per cent, and are to be redeemed in
llM.OOO lots, beginnlm? In 1906 and con
tinuing yearly for live years until ull
are redeemed. They are uayable In
"currency." On Oct. I, when the first
attempt was made to float the bonds
there was not a single bidder. Propo
sitions of various sorts were received,
but no one made an out and out offer to
take the bonds.
one tlrm of bankers would agree to
take them If the rate of Interest was
Increased. Another was willing to
take them at par. Another offered to
dispose of them on commission. Oth
ers communicated that they would bid
on the bonds if the commissioners
would stipulate that the redemption
should be In gold. None of the offers
could be considered, so the commission
ers decided to reject them all nnd re
advertise. Yesterday at noon the responses to the
second advertisement were opened and
five good proposals, without Ifs and
nnds, were disclosed. The Lampecht
Pros. Co., of Cleveland, O., was the
best bidder of the live and was award
ed the whole block. The premium this
company offers is 2 7-10 or $20.70 on the
thousand, the highest premium ever
received for Lackawanna county bonds.
Representatives of the other bidders
requested the commissioners to notify
them In case the Cleveland firm should
default. They would take the liomls,
they said, and would make a satisfac
tory offer.
While the advertisement specifies
$90,000 as the amount of the issue, it
will exceed that figure by possibly $20,
000, ns enough bonds must be disposed
ot to meet the expense of court house
alterations and these alterations will, it
is estimated, cost $110,000 or there
abouts. The bidders agree to take the
full issue, no matter what figure it

At daybreak yesterday Clara Woichel,

Dnvls gained entrance to the house
by removing a widow screen and forc

where, on account of his familiarity
with the house, he knew duplicate keys
for all the rooms were kept.
Selecting the key to the room of Sllsa
Weicbel he let himself In and then as
saulted her. He had a knife and a
club, but when he found, unexpectedly,
that the housekeeper was sleeping w!th
the Weiehel woman he presumably
feared to carry out his design, but In
his Jealous rage could not resist the
temptation to strike her and with his
heavy walking stick he dealt her two
cowardly blows.
The first struck her square across the
forehead, but remarkable to say, only
dazed her. She awoke in an Instant
nnd lnstinctlvelalsed her arm to pro
tect herself. The second blow fell upon
her forearm. Seeing his victim was
awake and to all appearance con
scious, Davis turned and fled, but not
before he was seen and recognized by
both the women. When he had gone a
butcher knife with a seven Inch blade
was found on the floor.
The Weiehel woman had her w Hinds

out of the county jail, where he was
awaiting trial for pointing firearms,
contempt of court and rulnlnir n young
girl. He went to the Weiehel woman's
house and Insisted on b'ing harbored,
although forbidden the place by the
proprietress. He became such nn an
noyance that two weeks ago she had
him turned out. He threatened to kill
her, and fearing that he would carry
out his thret she had him arrested
and arraigned before Alderman Millar.
He professed repentance und upon his
agreement to molest her no more she
withdrew the prosecution. Nothing
was airnln heard from him until his

Alter Which Alderman Howe Com

Attorney John J. .Murphy Is ltctaiacd
to Defend DnmbrosioAt the Henr
iug County Detective I.eysUon
Swore and Wns Corroborated by
Constable Timothy Jones Thnt the
Defendant Admitted Ho Killed
Hoceo Snlvalorc.
Frank Dambroslo, Rocco Ralvatore's
murderer, wus given a preliminary
hearing In Alderman Howe's office
yesterday afternoon ut 4.S0 and after
the evidence of Coroner Longstreet.
County Detective Leyshon and Con
stable Timothy Jones had been heard,
Dunibrosio was formally committed t)
the county jail to await trial in court.
District Attorney John R. Jones was
present on the part of the common
wealth nnd Attorney John J. Murphv
appeared in the Interest of the accused.
Some friends had been to the jail at
noon nnd Dambroslo asked them to
recommend n, lawyer to defend him.
They selected Sir. Slurnhy.
Sir. Leyshon brought the prisoner
down from the county Jail. The trip
was made on the street car. They got
off nt the coiner of Washington nvenue
and Spruce street and walked along
side by side to Alderman Howe's of
fice. Dambroslo. of course, was se
curely handcuffed, but he did his best
to conceal the bracelets with the sleeves
of his coat. They walked back and
forth from the car to the alderman's
office without attracting nmich ntt.-n-tlon,
and Dambroslo was pleased that
he was the center of a gaping dnd curi
ous multitude.
When the henrlng began the warrant
was read by Alderman Howe to the
prisoner. It wns sviorn out by Mr.
Leyshon yesterday and It charges him
with the deliberate, premeditated, and
willful killing of Rocco Salvatoro at
Hunker Hill, Duntuore. on Friday,
Nov. 13. As Dunibrosio can spenk
English only very Imperfectly, Con
stant Monisinl was sworn to lnterpiet
th? meaning of the warrant to him.
Then, through his counsel, he entered
a plea of not guilty.
Coroner Longstreet was the first vlt
ness sworn. He wns questioned by
District Attorney Jones nnd the state
ment he made was In substance that
he had held an autopsy on the body of
Rocco Salvatore on tho mornlnsr of
Nov. 14. When he arrived at Hunker
Hill, Dunmore, he first saw the dead
body lying In the field. At the au
topsy the coroner removed the breast
bone and parts of the libs on both
He found a stnh wound on the right
side close to the breast bone. The knife
had cut the sixth rib In two nnd had
gone Into the body the length of a
pirson's linger, severing; the mnln ar
tery. Another wound was found on
the left side under the collar bnn.
This was made with a knite, too, but
the wenpon glanced off one of the ribs
and took n downward course beneath
the skin.
Death wns cnused by the wound on
the right side, but it might result from
such a wound as was on the left side,
from shock.
Mr. Leyshon was put on the stand.
The district attorney asked him if he
ever saw the prisoner before, and Sir.
Leyshon replied that he did; that he
arrested him Sunday night at Carbon
dale. The witness then went on und
detailed how he gained the information
which led to Dninbrosio's arrest. A
man came from Curbondule Sunduy to
see some friends of the murderer and
he wanted money from them to help
Dambroslo to get away from the coun
try. Tho Intermediary wns a young man
named Rafael Cntterino, who keeps a
shoemnklng establishment In Carbon,
dale. He was placed under arrest nnd
on the way to the county Jnil he turned
state's evidence and told Sir. Leyshon
he would show him where Daniluosi.i
was hiding. He wus taken at his word
and he was brought to Catiiontlule.
Ofiistahle Frank Williams und Special
Olllcer Zerllny;, two Italians, and Con
stable Timothy Jones accompanied Sir.
Leyshon to Cnrbondalc.
They first went to the police station
there and got Chief McAndrew nnd
Patrolman SIcAndrew to go with them
to Catterlno's house. There they ar
rested Dambroslo. Mr. Jones axUed
Mr. Leyshon If the prisoner made nny
statement after being placed under ur
rest. He said he warned Dambroslo
that he need not say anything that
would incriminate him.
Sir. Murphy objected to nny state
ment made by the prisoner while un
der arrest. He held thnt any conver
sation carried on with a defendant
while In duress1 should not be used as
evidence against him If the statement
was not made in a court of record.
The alderman overruled the objection
nnd Sir. Leyshon wns permitted to state
thnt DumhroMlo admitted of his own
free will thnt he killed Rocco Salva
tore with a knife.
Mr. Leyshon said he made no prom
ises of nnv kind, on the contrary that
it was not necessary to say anything,
or that any statement made by liitn
would be used against him. Notwith
standing this warning he openly ad
mitted that he did the killing. Sir.
Murphy cross-examined Mr. Leyshon
and nsked him If the defendant had
made any qualifying statement to the
effect that the killing was In self de
fense. Sir. Leyshon said Dnmbroslo
said nothlns; at ull about self defense.
Timothy Jones, constable of the Fifth
ward, was sworn to corroborate Mr
Leyshon. He wns standing beside
Dambroslo when he made the state
ment to Mr. Leyshon and heard Dmii
liroislo say that he killed Salvatore.
That was nil the testimony taken
nnd District Attorney Jones asked the
alderman to Issue a commitment for
Dambroslo, holding him without bail
for trial In court, us It wus a case of
first degree murder. Sir. Murphy, f.,r
flic defendant, waived ull right to nny
further heaiinc and Sir. Leyshon took
his man In charge and brought lnr.i
buck to the county jail.
Dambroslo had on the same coat lie
wore the night of the murder. There
are two rips in the middle of the l.aci;
of It which were made with a knife.
He has a cut under his left, ear which
looks as If It might have been a slash
of a knife or a gash from a razor while
shaving. A Tribune reported asked
Djimbruslo how he got the cut on tils
race, anil he answereu mat Jtocco Sal
vatore did it with Ills linger nail.
At G o'clock Attorney Slurphy went
to the ofllce of Dr. W. M. Kecdy nnd
got him to go to the jail to make an
examination of Dambroslo. but v.iien
they urrlved at the Jail Night Warden
T. J. Price would not permit Dr. Reedy
to act without a permit from Sheriff
Clemons. Mr. Price would allow At
torney Murphy to have Jail Physician
Jenkins examine Dambrosio for the
knife wounds In his back, but Sir. Slur
phy preferred to wait until this morn
ing; to get a permit from the sheriff
and have Dr. Reedy do It. Tho pur
pose In to give testimony with regard
to It when tho case comes to trial.
Dambrosio Insists that he committed
the murder In self-defense. He says
the knife wounds In his back were In
flicted by Salvatore; nnd that the blood
from them ran down along his back
nnd legs Into his shoes. He will have
his underclothing and stockings to show
In proof of this when the time comes
for trial in court . .
Joseph Dambroslo, brother of the
murdVrer, and Frank Chiprlano, the
boarding housekeeper, near whose
home the killing occurred, were given
n hearing before Alderman Millar lust
night on the chante of being accessor
ies to tho murder, but owing to the
lack of evldenco were discharged.
Michael Petral was the prosecutor
against Dambrosio nnd Rocco Mnrquc
ona preferred the churge against Cbip
hiann. Attorney Thomas P. Dufty
represented the defendants.
A crowd that tilled the ofllce and hall
way leading thereto was in attendance
at the hearing. Apparently every able
bodied mule resident of the Hunker Hill
Italian colony was there.
New Organization Which Proposes to

A noteworthy nnd most commendable

Parti, Wllllnm Vokolek and ot'oers
while engaged In, lecturing to them dur
ing the lust campaign. They found,
tiny say. a lumentable lack of knowl
eofcc, even among the naturalized com
patriots of American institutions and
ot the true obligations of citizenship.
They then resolved to form some plan
for ameliorating this deplorable condi
tion, nnd last tiikht saw their first step
In this direction.
They sent out Invitations to the rec
ognized lenders of the lacis
to meet with them at Music hall last
night to discuss tha project and ns a
result the following were pie.ent: Ed

editor if the Scranton Sonnabend
Journal, nnd William Weleker were
present as guests.
A dinner was served and after this
speeches were made by all present.
Every speaker said whnt he had to
say in English, if he could possibly
make himself understood In thnt lan
guage. At all events he was required
to make the attempt and then after
wards wns permitted. If he felt so .is
posed. to unburden himself in his own
language. All were heartily In favor
of the movement nnd agrees to bend
their every effort to make It a success.
The rdan is not thoroughly defined
ns yet. but It Is proposed to establish
a lecture bureau, institute schools
where lectures will be delivered regu
larly by the more enlightened men of
the different races and distribute litera
ture bearing upon the work. It is also
proposed to encourage by example and
precept the use of the United States
language as much ns possible. Some
of tho speeches, though couched In
English that would scarcely be under
stood by a man who never heard any
other language, still In their intent
burned with a patriotism that would
do credit to a Fourth of July orator.
