.Tudire Kihvurds-'i Is engaged in tho
muln court room In trying the enso of
Mr. and Mrs. Thomas W. Davis against
Susan Spencer and others, owners of
the Green Hldgo Iron works. Tho plain
tiffs seek to recover damiiRes for tho
death of their son, Owen Davis, who
wus killed, while at work at the mill,
by the bursting of 11 fly-wheel, March
Tho plaintiffs alleRo that the lly
Wlieel wus defective: that It did not
run true, was not properly fitted to the
shaft, and thut these defects were
brought to the nollce of the defendant
The defense contends that the par
ents have no legal stnndlni m nlalu
tlffs, as their son was. admittedly, over
twenty-one years of age til tlu lime of
the killing; and that at all events,
there was no defect in the fly-wheel, as
Young Davis was employed as roll
er's helper. II way his duty to drag
the heated bars from the furnace to the
rolls and in doing this he passed close
to tho fly-wheel and thm look a posi
tion directly In fiont of It, some Ill'tv
feet away. While in this latter posi
tion, on the day in question, the wheel
burst, at a time when it was going tit
a very high rate of speed, and a two
and one-half foot section of the fortv
flvo foot rim, weighing four hundred
pounds, struck him and killed him in
stantly, breaking his neck and citlsh
Ing his body In several places.
PORTION OF RIM.
The other portion of the rim, with
sections of the radiating arms at
tached, flew through the roof find
landed outside the works on a scran
heap. There was a full foice of men
at work at the time, but by good for
tune none of tho others were in line of
the Hying debris.
It wag testified to on the nlalntlffs'
side yesterday that it was a mutter of
general comment about tho mill that
the fly-wheel wobbled; that it was In
a dangerous condition, and that notice
of this was brought home to the com
pany. It was further shown that only
one pin was used lo hold the wheel fast
to the shaft, though there were grooves
provided for two. Furthermore, it is
proposed to bo proven that when the
mill was toiling three-eights iron, as
was the case on the day of the acci
dent, it whs customary to weight down
the governors of the engine that II
might attain the highest speed It was
capable of, and that this thing was
done on that day.
To establish a standing as plaintiff,
the father of young Davis avers In his
declaration that ho Is old, decrepit and
unable to support himself and wife,
and that tho boy who was killed was
the chief support of the family. In op
position lo this the defense offered to
prove on the cross-examination of the
father that he was working at the mill
and receiving on an average of $1,40 a
day at the time his son was killed, and
that he had worked steadily during tho
year preceding. Judge Edwards held
that this evidence would have to come
in when tho defense was examining in

In Judge Kelly's court Is being heard
the case of the Borough of Jermvn
asainst J. D. Stocker and It. M.
StoLker, a suit to recover on a munici
pal Hen tho cost of laying a sidewalk in
front of a property on Main street,
owned by the defendants.
In July, 189S", the borough council
passed an ordinance providing for the'
laying of flagstone sidewalks on Main
street, with tho proviso that if tho
property holders did not do tlie work
within sixty days after tlie passage of
the ordinance, tho borough would do it
nt tho expense of the property holder.
TIip Stockci'8 did not comply with the
directions of the ordinance, so tho bor
ough authorities proceeded to have the
work done and charge the cost against
tho property in the shape of a lien,
The Stockers put In an affidavit if de
fense to prevent judgment and tills put
the matter at Issue.
The defendants claim that there was
no notlca given them and that no grade
was burnished them, though they re
j)iec'l'' rshed or It.
The p'llntlft", through the borough
couucllmen, told of tho passage of the
ordinance and that Mr. Stocker was
present at tho meeting. They udmltted
that, although tho grade was not Used
till October 12, they entered into con-
, tracts with third parties for doing the
1 work the very next day. This action
was excused on the ground that Mr.
Stocker had declared ho would not do
the work until tlie borough had settled
with him for damages done to another

When the plaintiff's testimony was
all In, the defense moved for n non-suit
on the ground that the borough had
not proceeded regularly In passing nr
carrying nut the provisions of the ordi
nance One of the alleged tnoit fatal
defects was that the work was besun
the fifty-ninth day after the pnpsago
of the ordinance, which speclllcnlly
states that the property ladder shall
have sixty days In which In tlo I ho
It. was admitted on the plnlullff's side
that tho ordinance was passed pur
posely to compel tho Stockers lo lav
the sidewalk In question. The old side
walk ordlnunce was 1 found to be In
operative, so the council passed a new
ami stringent one that would, thov
thought, be effective. So stringent wn's
II, that protests camo from all sides
against Ms passage, but these were
slienced with an aside assurance that
any one who wasn't able to pay for thu
sldowulk "wouldn't bo pushed."
Judge Kelly wus disposed, seemingly,
to favor thu motion for a non-suit, but
put the matter over till Friday to look
over the cases cited by tho attorneys
on the one side and the other.
Borough Solicitor Henry W. Mulhol
lund and A. J. Colborn represented the
plolntirf'H side. Tho defense was looked

The Scrnnlon board of trade offers
thu patriotic citizens of this city es
pecial cause for thanksgiving this
morning. It hns succeeded, thiough
the untiring efforts of Secretary Ather
ton, In locating a big new industry
For several reasons best known to
Seciotarv Atherton and the members
of the firm which Is to locate heiv,
full details cannot be given until next
W'ck, but all negotiations have been
closed and building operations are to
be commenced within the next two
Thu industry, tho exael untitle of
which cannot now be made public,
will be located In the Keyser Val
ley, In West Scranton, Just at thu end
of Jncksnn street. The site) hns bem
puchased from the T.ncknwanna, Iron
and Coal company, and comprises tour
and a, third acres, contiguous to both
the Lackitwunna and Ontario and
Western railroads. One hundred
skilled mechanics will be employed at
the start and II Is expected that this
number will soon be largely Increased.
Sectetnry Alheiton was conversing
last spring with n gentleman who re
marked that such and such an Indus
try could be easily Induced to leave
such and such a city If the proper lu
dttcemiMits were offered. The secre
tary became Interested and made a
personal call soon afterwards upon
this members of the firm.
Tho business had at that time been
established in its present location
since IS 10 and the members of the
firm, when the secretary saw them,
had just heard of Scranton In a casual
ort of a way, but had absolutely no
Idea of coming here to locate1. The
secretary's persuasive eloquence won
out, however, and he succeeded in get
ting them to visit this city.
They came on Labor Day and were
shown the many natural advantages
which Scranton holds forth for an in
dustry of their kind. They seemed to
bo favorably Impressed and returned
home. Not heuring from them for
soveral weeks, the secretary wrote. In
quiring whether they had given Scran
ton up. They replied that they could
not make any definite reply until tho
end of the big coal strike, and after
the presidential election.
Bright and early on Nov. 7, when
the news of President McKinley's re
election had been flashed throughout
the country, the secretary wrote thnm.
asking them to make a final answer.
A few days afterwards both members
of tho Arm again came to this city
and inspected several sites In various
rmrts of the city. They finally decided
upon the one in West Scranton and
made ti formal proposition to the
Lackawanna Iron and Coal company.
At n meeting of the directors of this
corporation, held last Friday in New
York city, their offer was accepted
and the deed for the property for
WILL BE TUESDAY.
Secretary Atherton received a let
ter yesterday from the linn, announc
ing that they would be In this city
on or about next Tuesday and asking
him to arrange for a meeting of con
tractors, so that estimates could be
immediately prepared and bids offered
for the construction of the foundations
of the plant. They desire to have tho
foundations completed, If possible, be
foie the real winter weather sets In.
Tliis is an Industry which comes to
this city fully capitalized and with
an established business reputation,
doling back sixty years. It will cost
the city absolutely nothing. All the
expense of moving the plant from its
present location will be mot by tho
