H. J. Crossley, a mlddto used man,
was tried before Judgp R. W. Arch
bald ycHterday, charged with havlnsr
attempted to criminally assault Minnie
Marsh, a 0-ycar-old girl. Crossley Is n
veteran of thu Civil war and was for
vears a commercial traveler and In
widely known through thla part of the
Btate. His (laughter, ti beautiful youns
woman, sat Irt the court room all day
nnd listened to the awful evidence ad
duced against her father. She wan
stylishly attired and her face was par
tially conceuled by a light blade veil.
Notwithstanding the terrible nature
of the charge against her father she
still clings to him.
Crossley at the time of the alleged
offense, July 1 last, lived In half of a
double house on Gibson street between
Washington and Adnms avenues. Mr.
nnd Mrs. S. J. Marsh and their chil
dren occupied the other half of the
house. Eva Murah testified that on
July 1 Crossley attempted to assault
her at the Erie and Wyoming Valley
station, and that on weveral occasions
he exposed his person, took undue lib
erties with her and spoltc in a. vile
Minnie Hine. another little girl, cor
roborated everything Eva Marsh said
except with reference to the attempt
to assault. Crossley had not attempt
ed anything qf that kind with her, but
otherwise she had the same experi
ences with him. Bessie Marsh, ago S
years, ntso gave some testimony about
Ciossley's Improper actions toward her
and her sister. The girls said that
Crossley always gave them money
when he was familiar and told them
not to say nnythlng to their pnrents
about it.
Crossley went on the stand In his
own behalf. He has been in jail since
early in July awaiting trial. He denied
positively all of the charges made by
the little girls nnd hinted, rather than
stated, that the prosecution was due
to enmltv of Mrs. Marsh towards him.
He knew things about her he said. On
cross-examination he denied that his
wife charged him with the offense for
which he is row on trial in the pres
ence of the chief of police and threat
ened to shoot him. He also denied
that he had, in the presence of
the chief on the night of his ar
rest, said he would beg Mr. Marsh's
pardon and leave the city the next day
if the case against him was not prose
cuted. In his charge to the jury Judse Arch
Mid said that the evidence would
hardly warrant a conviction on the
first count of the indictment, that Is,
an attempt to commit rape. The sec
ond count charges assault. The case
went to the jury at 4.45 p. m.
Charles Graham, Richard Alien and
Francis WInwood, members of the
famous "Yellow Kid" gang from Heu
nessy alley, West Side, were leturned
guilty yesterday morning for burglar
izing the stores of Florey & Brooks
and the D. I. Phillips' estate, and steal
ing from Tobcy's Penn avenue store.
David Davis, another member of the
gang, was acquitted of the charge.
Harrv Hill pleaded guilty. Judge
Arch bald will sentence the youths Sat
urday, and they will in all probability
be sent to the reformatory nt Hunting
Jeffrey Powers and Thomas Ford, jr.,
two young men from the West Side,
charged with selling liquor without a
license and selling on Sunday, were
nrraigned before Judge Archbald. Pow
ers and Ford are charged with being
the proprietors of a speakeasy on
Scranton street, near Kelly's block.
The place these young men are charged
with being the proprietors of was one
of the worst in the city.
The defense tried to prove that
Powers is not connected in any way
with the ownership of the place, that
Ford is the sole proprietor. In fact,
when Ford, who is a one-legged man,
testified, he denied Powers' connection
and stated that ho was the solo pro
prietor, that ho has a lease for the
place. Alderman John P. Kelly, who
Is the owner of the buildings, produced
in testimony the separate leases of
Powers and Ford.
County Detective Thomas Leyshon,
George Reese, Vincent Carluccl, Jos.
Serti, Angello Fertello, Arthur Keene
and Tim Jones testified that they had
purchased beer of Ford.
Attorney M. F. Conry, In stating his
case for the jury, said the defense
would prove that Ford was the sole
proprietor, that he had a lease for the
building, and that Powers, who keeps
a barber shop in the front of the pluce,
was In no way connected with the
speakeasy. Ford was the llrst witness
for the defense. Ho admitted being
the proprietor, said he sold liquor on
Sunday and without a license.
Powers, in his testimony, said ho had
nothing to do with the speakeasy, that
he was not one of the proprietors, and
that ho did not sharo In the profits.
The jury convicted both men.
Anton Stein admitted having broken
Into a Delaware and Hudson freight
car, and was fined $1, costs and given
six months In the county jail.
In the case ugainst Salvatoio Pcn
dola and Glvalano Pendola, wherein
Charles Aronson was prosecutor, a. vur
dlot of not guilty was returned yester
day and the costs divided.
Mary Carey, of West Scranton,
pleaded guilty to selling liquor with
out a license, and on Sunday, and sen
tence was suspended for tho reason
that Mrs. Carey has flvo children de
pendent upon her. It was one of tho
Men's union cases,
Wolf and Louis Uosnnburg, of Penn
avenue, and Jenkln Hurris, of Centre
street, prosecuted by the Men's union
for selllnsr on Sunday, had nol pros,

of the costs. They have agreed not to

the afternoon of July 4 last. Tho

a large number of friends and neigh

Thomas Nolan was tried for assault
and battery preferred np.alnst him by
Mrs. Mnggle O'Royle. The troublo oe- I
currod over on Meridian street on May
8, nnd was occasioned by a dispute
over the ownership of a lounge, which
tho prosecutrix assorted Bho had left
In Mrs. Nolan's house when moving
therefrom. According lo the prosecu
trix the defendant pushed her, pulled
her hair, knocked her down and bit
her finger severely. The defendant
stated that ho was out of town on
May 8, and did not return until tho
29th of that month. He did say, how
ever, that he had trouble with tho
prosecutrix In tho early part of June:
thnt ho refused to allow her to take

Oolden nnd Thomas Conner was next
called. Tho defendants live at Carbon
dale and according to tho prosecution,
on the night of July 2, while out on
a fishing trip, used the lumber from
nn lee house in possession of the pros
ecutor for the purpose of building a
fire. It was claimed that tho ice house
was practically destroyed.
Tho defendants asserted that the
building was simply a worthless old
shed. At the conclusion of the com
monwealth's case, Senator McDonald,
representing the defense, moved to
have the case taken from considera
tion of tho jury on the ground that
the evidence did not disclose the of
fense charged In the Indictment, and
further thut the only chnrge that was
made out, if any, was that of lar
ceny, as provided by act of assembly.
The court decided to luar the whole
story and submitted the case to the
jury, which returned a verdict of not
guilty, but directed that the costs be
divided between tho defendants and
the prosecutor.
