OLD MAN THE VICTIM
OF BRUTAL ASSAULT

a Gang of Young Hoodlums
on Capouse Avenue.
John Xicholsko, a 11-year-old lad
living on l'lielps street, was last night
arraigned before Alderman Millar and
held in 5nu0 ball on the charge of being
one of a gang of young hoodlums who
yesterday assaulted and brutally beat
J. .Rosenberg, an old and inoffensive
The old man was plying his trade on
Capouse avenue when Xicholsko and
the remainder of "the gang" caught
sight of liim and at llrst confined
their abuse to calling him vile names
and hailing him with various derisive
epithets. There were fully ten per
sons in the crowd of persecutors, some
of them mere boys and others men old
enough to know bettor. After awhllo
they hurled stones at hhu and followed
this up by falling upon him en iua.se
and giving him a very severe durb
bing. They left him with his face cut. In
several places, his one arm hanging
limp and stiff and altogether in a very
badly bruised and Injured condition.
He painfully made his way to police
quarters, and then, in company- with
City Detective Molr, went back to the
scene of the assault, and there Identi
fied young Xicholsko as one of liijS
assailants. The later was than taken
before Alderman Jllllar and given a
hearing. 'Warrants will probably ho

OF PLAYING SPOOK
Woman Receives a Serious Possibly
Fatal Injury While Attempting
to Scare Off an Undesir
As u result of playing spook, Mrs.
John Xoone, of Clover Hill, In the
Third ward, lies in a critical condition
with a wound on the head .which, it
Is feared, may prove fatal, or at all
events cause insanity:
Three months ago Mrs. Noone sold
a small house to Stephen Doyle, her
neighbor. He paid clown $5 to bind the
bargain and agreed to pay the balanco
in monthly installments. As the time
for stated payments went by twice in
succession without any remittance
from the purchaser, Mrs. Noone sought
to recover possession by ordering
Doyle to quit the premises, but lie
stolidly refused and bade Mrs. Noone
wait for her money.
13eing desirous of recovering her
property and undeslrous of going to
law about it, Mrs. Noone hit upon
the novel expedient of scaring the oc
Doyle wus known throughout the
neighborhood as being very supersti
tious and a firm believer In ghosts.
Tuesday night at the hour when
graves are said to give up their dead
Mrs. Noone enshrouded herself in a
white sheet and sallied forth to the
Doyle home. By tossing small stones
on the roof, rattling windows and
shaking tho doors she succeeded in not
only arousing but thoroughly terroriz
ing Doyle and his household.
Seeing that she had them in a great
state of consternation, ,Mrs. Noone
thought to cap the climax by hurling
a few stones through the window.
This, however, proved her undoing.
The school or ghostology which the
Doyles professed taught that spooks
could do no material damage. Rome
one of them, it does not develop which,
was so firmly entrenched in this tenet
that ho or she was emboldened to
open tho door. Just at that moment
Mrs. Noono was standing on the door
step. The terrorized member of tho
Doyle household which nad opened the
door was more terrorized at coming
face to face with tho apparition on
the door-stop, and, in tho lit of terror
with which he or she was seized,
raised a club or some other weapon
and brought it down on tho head of
the flgurn in white. The blow caused
a depression of tho skull, and Dr. Sul
livan, who is attending her, hesitates
to say what the consequences will be.
The Doyles are still In possession of

KILLED BY A
Mrs. Pasquale Bevalacdiie Fired
Two Shots Into the Body of
Mrs, ftntonlo Rose,
A COLD BLOODED MURDER
The Crime Occurred in the Kitchen
of tho Home of Mrs. Lucy Moresco
at 1226 Capouse Avenue, Where
Mrs. Rose Was Visiting The Mur
deresB Arrested and Will Be Given
a Hearing Today Tho Affair Was
the Culmination of a Series of Suits
and Cross Suits Brought by Both
Parties Verdict of Coroner's Jury.
For the first tlmo in tho history of
Lackawanna county, one women has
deliberately and with apparent mal
ice aforethought, killed another.
The crime occurrred yesterday morn
ing at 10.30 o'clock, when Mrs. Pas
quale Bevalaetnie llred two shots at
Mrs. Antonio Rose, killing her almost
instantly. The murderess made no ef
fort to escape. She is now in the cen
tral police station and will bo given
a hearing this morning.
The women are Italians and inves
tigation shows that bad blood existed
between them for some time past, yes
terday's affair being the culmination
of a series of suits and counter-suits
brought llrst by one and then by the
Mrs. Rose was a young woman just
passed twenty years. She vas raher
pretty and had black flashing eyes.
She lived formerly in Dunmoro, but
within the past few months moved to
a house in the rear of Washington
avenue, just beyond New York street.
Her husband Is employed at the Pine
Brook colliery as a laborer. Mrs.
l'evelacque is a woman about 35 years
old and Is far from otti active In ap
pearance. She has lived in the Ca
pouse avenue house for only a few
months. Her husband is a stone ma
son. SCENR OF TIII3 TRAGEDY.
The scene of the crimo was a two
story frame dwelling at 3226 Capouse
avenue, occupied on the ground floor
by Mrs. Lucy Maresco and on the sec
ond floor by Mrs. Bevalacque herself.
Tho only eye-witness of tho nffair was
Annie Maresco, Mrs. Marosco's 17-year-old
The murder was committed In the
kitchen of the Moresco home, where
Mrs. Rose was visiting. Mrs. Beva
lacque came into the room, quarreled
with Mrs. Rose, and finally, drawing a
revolver, shot the latter. Mrs. Rose
gathered enough strength to rush to
wards the front of the house, but she
got no further than a bedroom, which
is the second room from the kitchen.
There slio fell, and there she died al
The murderess, after taking sufficient
time to hide the revolver and to cau
tion Annlo Moresco against telling any
thing about her connection with the
crime, ran to tho house of Samuel
Sykes, at 1235 Pcnn avenue. She tried
to get in, but was refused admittance.
She then ran to a house a few hun
dred feet away from her own home, oc
cupied by James Reilly. Hero she
sought and found shelter. She was
very much excited, but did not seem to
realize the enormity of her offense.
In the meantime, tho police had been
notified by telephone and Chief Rob
ling, Captain Edwards, Detective Moir,
Patrolman Feenoy and Mounted Officer
Bloch were at the scene of tho crime
in less than ten minutes. Tho chief
and Detective Molr went to tho Reilly
house and arrested Mrs. Bevalacque,
who had made no effort to get away.
She had a year-old 'infant In her arms
when taken into custody, and was in
clined to resist a little, but was soon
convinced of the futility of such a
ADMITTED THE SHOOTING.
Through an interpreter she admitted
to Chief Robling that she had shot Mrs.
Rose, but sullenly refused to give any
reason for the act. She was taken to
tho central police station in a wagon
and lodged in a cell with tho child. She
maintained a stoical indifference all
day and refused to say anything. She
can speak but very little English.
AVhilo the chief and others wore ar
resting Mrs. Bevalacque, Ofllcer Bloch
went Into the Moresco homo In search
of tho body of the dead woman. Ho
found It In a small .room, just beyond a
bedroom, which opined off tho kitchen.
It was curled up near the door, and
tho face was distorted horribly, as If
tho unfortunate woman had suffered !
great pain before she died. The 'body I
was still warm, and It was upparent
that the woman had just died. The
only visible wound was a jagged hole
In tho left side of tho head, just behind
the ear, where ono of the three bullets
llred by Mrs. Bevalacque had taken ef
fect. The body was allowed to remain un
disturbed until tho arrival of the coro
nor, and Olllcer Bloch began a search
for tho revolver. Mrs. Bevalacque had
told Chief Robling that she didn't know
wliere she had put It.
It was discovered in a corner of ono
of iter rooms upstairs, covered with

tained live empty shells. It was later
ascertained that only two bullets took
effect In Mrs. Rose's body mid accord
ing to Annlo Moresco's story only three
shots were llred. It could ho seen
where one bullet had entered a pantry
window nearby, but no trace of any
others could be found.
Coroner Roberts arrived early In the
afternoon anil made a post-mortem ex
amination of tho body, assisted by
Doctors Thompson, Grant and Saltry.
This examination revealed that tho
bullet which entered behind the left
ear had passed through the brain and
was lodged In the muscles on tho out
side of the skull on the right side of
the head. The hair was scorched,
showing that the revolver must have
been held very close.
Tho other bullet entered under the
right arm-pit and passed through "tnjih
lungs, lodging on the right side of the
body. Dr. Roberts stated to a Tribune
man that either wound was sutllclcnt
to have caused the woman's death.
Immediately after the autopsy the
coroner impanelled tho following Jury
and conducted an inquest: Charles
Teeter, William Voting, Harry R.
Sykes, Joseph D. Parker, Solomon
Miller and .lames F. Weary. The. In
quest was held in the front room of the
Moresco apartments and the only wit
ness examined was Annie Moresco,
who witnessed the affair.
She stated that her mother left the
house early In the morning to go to
the central city, leaving her In charge.
Shortly before 10 o'clock Mrs. Rose,
who was a great friend of the family
and for whose child Mrs. Moresco had
become the godmother, came to pay a
The girl says Mrs. Rose came In the
house at her Invitation and sat down
on one side of the kitchen stove. They
talked together for a few minutes and
then Mrs. Bevalacque was noticed in
the yard. Annie said she Invited her
In and that she sat down on the other
side of the stove.
Almost immediately the two women
began quarreling, though the evact
nature of their quarrel the girl said
she could not tell, as she was llxl:i;r
the flro and not paying much atten
tion. She said, however, that the quar
rel suddenly became very violent.
lllia, BEVALACQUE ACCUSED.
The Moresco girl said that she re
members Mrs. Rose accusing Mrs. Bev
alacquoof not having paid her for some
scrubbing which she (Mrs. Rose) had
done when Mrs. Bevalacque lived with
her in Dunmore. This enraged Mrs.
Bavalaeque so that she sprang- angrily
to her feet.
"She jumped up," said Annie, "and
before I knew what she was going to
do had drawn a revolver. She came
close to Mrs. Rose and fired a shot
right "hi her face It seemed to me. I
was so frightened that I ran toward
the front of the house and as I ran I
heard two more shins fired,
"I got into tho front room and locked
the door behind me. Before I got into
tho room I looked around aiyl saw
Mrs. Rose running' after ine but she
fell at the third room. Mrs. Beval
acque came to the door and wanted me
to open it but I was scared at first and
would not do so.
"She asured me that she meant no
harm and I finally opened the door.
She took me upstairs to her place und
told me not to tell anybody anything
about the affair. She then went out
taking her child with her and that
was the last I saw of her."
The jury retired for only a few min
utes and returned the following ver
dict: "We, the undersigned jury, find that
Mary Rose cRmr to her death from pis
tol wounds inflicted by one, Josephine
Bevalacque on November 2;:, 1900."
An examination of the court records
reveals a number of eases in which
both the murdered and murderess fig
ure either as prosecutor or plaintiff.
It appears that the Bevalacque1'? for
merly rented a part of a h?uso from
Mrs. Rose and her husband, tho same
being situated at the corner of Morti
mer and Franklin streets, Dunmore.
CAUSE OF TROUBLE.
On September 22 last, the Boval
acques had Mrs. Rose arrested on the
charge of assault and battery and ma
licious mischief. Tho warrants were
Issued by Alderman B. W. Cooney, of
Dunmore, who held Mrs. Rose under
ball for court. The cose came before
the grand jury at Its last session and
a true bill was found against her.
On September 20, or four days later.
Pasquale Bevalacque had Mrs. Rose
arrested again charging her with
breaking the door of his homo and
throwing his furniture out of the
house. Tho grand jury also returned
a true bll lagalnst her in this case.
On September 22, Mrs. Rose had the
Bevalaeques, both husband and wife,
arrested. She charged Mrs. Bevalac
que with assault and battery, and
with pointing a revolver, threatening
to kill her with It. Shu did not ap
pear before the grand jury until it was
too late, and the bll Iwas accordingly
ignored, Her attorney, M. P. Cawley,

Tho work of Installing the telephones

The company's poles, with their
white cross-pieces, are now up In every
part of the city where the llnei will

Still another gang of men Is cm
ployed In putting In tho underground

have been run through the conduits.
In short, everything will bo ready
on Deeembpf 15 for active service In

tho switch-board, but that Is a most
Important exception. A large part of
it has arrived, as haw also the em
ployes of the Kellog Switch-board com
pany, of Chicago, who are to put it
up, but one of the most important
parts has not yet been received, and
until this is received tho work of In
stalling the board cannot bo begun.
WILL TAKE TWO MONTHS.
Tin; electrician In charge of the
work, sttiled yesterday to a Tribune
man that it would take two months
to put tho board together and get
It In proper working order, so it may
be Inferred from this that it will be
along about February I before any of
the company's system can be used.
General Mannger Wnyland stated to
the Tribune man that his original or
der was for a switch-board with 2,400
dropy. but that the company had re
ceived so many contracts that 000 new
drops had to be ordered. The aug
mented switch-board, he said, repre
sented an outlay of nearly $80,000.
The line between Wllkcs-Barro and
Scranton has been finished, while the
line between this city and Carbondale
Is nearing completion. Two gangs ari
working on It from both directions and
it is expected that they will come to
gether at Blakely in about two weeks.
The city lines arc constructed to the
Dunmoro line, but no farther, but twi
company has strong hopes of being
able to secure a franchise in that bor
ough. Manager Wayland attended on Wed
nesday a meeting of tho Interstate
Telephone and Telegraph company,
held at WllUes-Barre. This is the
company which will control the long
distance connections in tho states of
Pennsylvanlaand New Jersey. He re
ports that by January 1 excellent long
distance connections may be had In
nearly every city of any size in Penn
sylvania, New Jersey and New York
Connections, by way or Pittsburg,
may be had with Ohio, Indiana and
Michigan, with tho prospect of getting
farther west in a very short time. No
connections can he. had with Now
York city for at least a year, though
tho Now England states are covered
with n network of individual com
panies. Of course. It is not to be expected
that the independent companies will
be able to furnish ns complete a long
distance service for several years as
their older rivals, but in Av years
there is no question but that thoy will
have a system extending into nearly
every state In the union. Independent
telephone companies are being organ
ized in all parts of the country, and
when local systems arc got In opera
tion, it Is merely a question of string
ing a few miles of wire from town to
town to make connections.
