CHARGED WITH SWINDLING.
ll. II. Harvard Takea Into Custody
os I.nrknwnnan Avenue.
H. H. Harvard Is the name of a young
man gives who was arrested on Lacka
wanna avenue at noon yesterday by
Patrolman Haggerty on a warrant is
sued by Alderman Millar. The war
rant was sworn out by Job Whitehouse,
of the West Side, and the charge is ob
taining money under false pretenses.
Whitehouse claims that his mother-in-law
Invested In a building and loan
association represented by the ac
cused, and that she was swindled. Af
ter making several payments she found
that the company she thought she was
paying into is not represented in this
city by the agent who called upon her
and that he simply took her money and
put it In his pocket.
When Whitehouse swore out the war
rant he had an arrangement to meet
the agent on Lackawanna avenue and
Special Officer John Tlerney was given
the warrant and was told to follow
Whitehouse up and arrest the agent as
soon as Whitehouse met him and gave
the signal to come forward. The agent
did not fall into the trap set for him.
but Whitehouse met him later on the
avenue and turned him over to Patrol
man Haggerty who was close at hand.
Upon being charged before Alderman
Millar with the crime he plead that he
was only In the employ of another man,
who Is now in Honesdale. He was
committed to the polU-e station for a
further hearing and Ollicer Tlerney
went to Honesdale at 4 o'clock to try
and llnd the man whom Harvard
claims Is the principal.

KERNELS PACK WAS

Whea He Went Back He Found It Had
SAYS THAT IT WAS WORTH $500
He Refused to Pay Fare for His Pack
and Conductor B. E. Wending Took
it Out of the Car aad Plactd it on
the Itoud Complaint Entered
Against the Conductor.
I). Kerner. a pack-peddler, of 339
Penn avenue, lost his stock In trade
valued at $u0 in a rather peculiar way
Kwner. with two packs, containing
Jewelry and fancy articles, got aboard
a Peckville car at 7."0 o'clock last night
intending to go to OlypJhant. 'i he con
ductor, U. E. Welding, compelled him
to pay live cents extra for his bun
dles, one of which he had placed on
the seat beside him and the pther on
the lloor at his feet. When the city
line was reached the conductor again
took up his fare and wanted another
five cents for the packages. Kerner re
fused to pay the second time for the
packages, saying he had no more
money. Thereupon the conductor
picked up the packages and taking
them out the front way deposited them
on the street. Then he went back and
offering Kerner his fare back, told him
to net off. Kerner refused to do eltner
so the conductor gave two bells and
started the car onward.
At Storrs" crossing Kerner got up and
looked out on the front platform, where
he supposed, as he now states, the
conductor hud placed his packages.
Seeing they were not there he rushed
back to the conductor and demanded
to know what he had done with his
bundles. The conductor coolly told
him that they had been deposited on
the road at the city line.
Kerner started on a run back to
city line, only to tind, as he feared,
that his Dacks had disappeared. He
made some inquiries thereabouts, but
could learn nothing of his missing
treasures. He thereupon hastened to
the dispatchers' ofllce and laid com
plaint asainst the conductor and ulso
the foundation oi a damage sun.
He says that among other things tne
nnrknires contained three gentlemen's
gold watches, two muies goiu watcnes.
ii n s lver watches, twenty-one waicn
chains, nineteen lockets, a quantity of
such other valuables as gold rings,
gold-rlmmed spectacles, silver thimbles
and brooches and a quantity of laces
and costly embroideries. All In all he
sava his stock was valued at t00.
Conductor Welding says he could not
do otherwise than put the pnekages off
when Kerner refused to pay for them,
He wanted Kerner to get oft. too, and
offered three different times to give
him back his fare. Kerner. however.
refused either to take back his fare or
pay for the packages, and as there was
no reason for putting Kerner off, the
only thing to be done was to leave him
stay on, if he so chose.
Kerner says the conductor did not in
timate In any way that he Intended to
put the packages off the car and he
supposed that when the conductor took
them out that It was to place them on
the front platform. The conductor did
not tell him that tne packages naa
been placed In the road until he in
quired for them at storr s crossing.

New One is in Prospect at the Driv
The old wooden bridge which crosses
the Lackawanna river near the Dilv-

MINER'S BACK BROKEN.
Under n Fall ofltoof for Six Honrs in
tho Woodward Colliery.
A man named Thomas Emblem, a
miner in the Woodward colliery of the
Delaware. Lackawanna and Western
at Kingston, was caught under a fall
of roof at 9 o clock yesterday morning
and It was 3 In the afternoon before he
could be taken out. The weight and
bulk of the rock was so great that
very slow progress was made, and it
was necessarily slow In order not to
disturb the load of rock for fear It
would begin settling and crush his life
Mis Injuries, as It was, are fatal, and
It is a wonder that he was not killed
outright. He was brought to the Moses
Taylor hospital and his death was said
by the doctors at midnight to be but a
short time off. He Is about 55 years old
and married. His back was broken.
