Not the least enjoyable feature of
the night was Mayor Moir's address
at 30:30 o'clock. His Honor was in
troduced by President of Common
Council V. V. Griffiths, and was greet
ed with a volley of cheers and ap
plause. He congratulated the company
on its splendid new home and re
marked that the former condltin of
atfalrs when the Liberties and Niag
aras were crowded together into most
narrow quarters was disgraceful. "The
idea," said he "of having two such
excellent companies located In the
same spot, instead of being at separ
ate locations, whore they,. w;tnild have
full scope for their powers and could
prove of more general advantage to
the community. But now a satisfact
ory condition of affairs has been ar
rived at, and through the efforts of
some of your North Scranton council
men, you hav obtained this splendid
new house and a long felt want of
this section of the city has been filled."

by Sir Thomas Lipton, catno to-day
when pork for delivery this day ad
vanced $3, rising on less than a dozen
trades to $20 at the close to-day.
Shorts who had held off until tho

It was said that Sir Thomas could
have made tho price $100 as well as $20,
but he declared he had no intention of
As a result of his deul hero Lipton
Is believed to have made $330,000. There
were only 33,000 barrels of pork that
could bo delivered and tho English

that number bought from people who
did not have a barrel they could de

JURY WAS IN
UNABLE TO DETERMINE CAUSE
OP GAVELIS' DEA1H.
Testimony of Experienced Railroad
Men Given at Inquest Substan
tiates the Theory That tho Man
Was Foully Health, with and tho
Body Was Placed on tho Tracks.
Hearing Adjourned Until Tonight
to Hear Testimony of Other Wit
nesses. The coroner's Jury In tho case of
Simon Qavolls, who was found dead
last Saturday morning on tho Lacka
wanna railroad near tho Brlsbln
mine, wns unable to render a verdict
last night owing to the absence of
several witnesses. Thus far no light
has been thrown on tho case, and the
manner In which Gavells met his
death is us deep a mystery as the
Walker death, which occurred a few
days previous, in tho same vicinity.
Coroner Roberts yesterduy experi
enced much dlfllculty In securing wit
nesses to testify in the case, und un
less more conclusive evidence Is pro
duced at the adjourned hearing this
evening, but little can be learned re
garding the manner In which Gavells
was killed. From the testimony al
ready heard, however, It is quite ap
parent that the man was not struck
by a train.
At tho hearing In the arbitration
room of the court house last night,
tne llrst witness called was Edward
Aten, a brakeman on tho Lackawanna
railroad. The first intimation ho re
ceived of the man on the track was
when riding down from Clark Summit
on an engine. He was Informed by
Yardmaster George Price that there
was a man on the track and sat on
the head end of tho engine looking for
At a point about 100 feet south of
the watchman's shanty, Aten saw the
body lying on the track. The man's
head was in a pool of blood near the
frog of a switch, with one arm and
one leg over the west bound freight
track. He noticed a deep gash In
Gavells' head, but there were no
Indications that the man had been
struck by a trairi.
COULD NOT HAVE BEEN STRUCK.
Mr. Aten testified that he had seen
a number of cases where men had
been struck by trains, but in all his
experience as a railroad man, ho
never witnessed any that would cor
respond with this case. From the po
sition in which tho body was found,
he stated that the man could not
have been struck by a train.
George Price, tho assistant yard
master at the Notch, was next called.
There was no marks on the bodv,
other than tho cuts on tho head, and
the clothing' was frco from dirt. The
witness could not conceive of ans way
the man could have been killed from
the position in which he found the
body. He did not believe that the man
was struck by a train or engine. His
testimony was to the effect that his
train left the yard at 1.15 o'clock, and
while passing tho point where the body
was found, riding on the engine, he
thought he saw an object on the tracks.
He informed the other trainmen, and
when returning from the Summit
stopped nnd found the body.
Together with tho other trainmen, he
assisted in removing the man from the
tracks. His testimony was along the
same line as that given by Brakeman
Aten. He did not think that the man
was struck by a train, and was positive
that ho was not struck by the train on
which he rode to the Summit.
John Chuslvskie, a neighbor of the
dead man, was sworn, but claimed to
be ignorant of anything pertaining to
tho case. Ho proved to be a stubborn
witness, and If he has any knowledge
of the case, refrained from committing
himself. Clusivskie has a wound on
his hand, which he claims was inflicted
by himself with a knife.
He testified to having been on Theo
dore street Fricniy evening, but did not
see Gavells or hear anything about tho
case until after the body was found.
Ho denied ever having had anj- trouble
with the dead man, and said ho only
knew him a few months previous to his
GAVEL1S ATTENDED WEDDING.
Michael Gavells, of Nay Aug avenue,
a cousin of the man found on tho rail
road, testified that ho attended a wed
ding with Simon Frldnj' evening and
started homo with him about 12 o'clock.
On the way, Simon became angry nt
being reprimanded for quarreling and
drinking, and started up tho railroad
alono. That was tho last seen of him
Tho witness testified that Simon had
trouble with a fellow named John
Yearsavltch, and the latter left the
wedding ahead of tho dead man. Year
savltch also wont up the railroad. Tho
latter was arrested by County Detec
tive Leyshon, but was afterwards dis
charged. Tho coroner will endeavor to locate
Yearsavltch today, together with sev
eral others who attended the wedding,
and their testimony will bo heard at 8
o'clock this evening In tho court house.
