WILSON SAID JURORS
Juror John J. Coyne Overheard Him
mid Called the Attention of Judge
Cameron to the Matter.
John J. Coyne, of Miuooka, who Is
one of this week's panel of juiois,
asked permission yesterday moining
to make a statement to Judge D.ivid
Camei on, In No. ".
Mr. Coyne was one of the juiois
who passed upon the case of Thomas
Norton, charged with selling liquor
without a license, which was tried
Tuesday. Mr. Coyne said ho over
heard Mr. Wilson say in the corridor
to several men that some of the Nor
ton jurors had been tampeied with.
Not tuslrlng to rest under this Im
putation, Sir. Coyno demanded thai
Sir. Wilson be compelled to retract
his words or make them specific. It
was a reflection on every one of the
jurors, Sir. Coyne said.
Judge Cameron decided that lnas
mueh as no charges had been made
to tho court about the jurois, he would
not be jiistllled lit going Into a con
sideration of corridor gossip.
Mr. AVIIson, when seen later in the
day by a Tribune man, said: "I was
not in court when Sir. Coyne asked
that I be brought in. I can say that I
am noL given to making rash state
ments and am always prepared to
stand by what I say."

IS HE THE VICTIM OF A
Evidence Indicates That nn Effort Is
Being Made to Fasten a Crime ot
Which He Is Innocent Upon Him,
or That H1b Friends Are Desper
ately Trying to Save Him from
His Dhngerous Position Attor
neys' Addresses to the Jury Today.
Simon Neruslms, who Is on trial for
the killing of John Stlsktm nt the Int
tor's houso In Lloyd street, this city,
on Starch 18, 1896, was on the stand
yesterday, nnd denied most emphati
cally that ho committed the murder.
He was boarding with Mr. nnd Sirs.
Andrew Sillier nt that lime, and wont
to bed soon after 9 o'clock on the
night in nuestlon. ITn did not -ret un
until tho following morning.
Charles Sillier, a brother of the prds
ecutor, who was called in rebuttal by
tho. commonwealth, ndmltted Hint he
had endeavored to get Nerushas at
torneys to throw up tho ensp nnd de
sort him. All tho testimony Is iow
In, and this morning Attorney W. R.
Lewis will address the jury for the
defense, nnd Assistant District Attor
ney Thomas for tho commonwealth.
Tho case has developed the fact that
either a plot has been hatched to send
Nerushns to tho gallows, or he and
his witnesses are doing some mon
strously magnificent swearing. Thers
is no middle ground where the Avlt
nesses for tho commonwealth and do
fenso can meet. Their stories are dia
metrically opposed one to the other.
' James While was the first witness
called at yesterday morning's pesslon.
White was a lodger In the Sllaku
home, nnd stated that he went to bed
about 8 o'clock and heard no noise
or scuflle during the night. He was
awakened at S In the morning, when
ho heard some one walk pat his bed
A RROTHKIt'S TESTISIONV.
Anthony Sillier, a brother ot the
prosecutor, testified that at the tlnu
of the murder both Nerushns andl Le
zofsky boarded with him. About 0
o'clock on the night of the killing
Nerushns came to the house and asked
for some supper, after which he went
out, returning nt 11, and immediately,
retiring. Witness said that he saw
Lezofsky about 7 o'clock of that even
ing, and thnt he was very drunk. AVit
ness at one time charged Andrew
Gordon with perjury as to the matters
Iip had testified to in this case. Gor
don leplied that he knew his testi
mony was false, but that ho had en
deavored to help out sutler's brother,
Mrs. Anthony Sillier corroborated
John Aran Bergen, jr., a deputy clerk
in the county commissioners' ofllce,
saw tho body of Sliskus as It lay in
the snow under the culvert about G:li
o'clock on tbe morning of March IS.
He said that he was the first man
who went up to the body, as there
were no other tracks than those madu
by witness within thirty feet of It.
He described the conditions, the posi
tion of the body and the culvert, tho
apparent purpose being to show by tlio
witness thai Sliskus was either
thrown fiom the tracks or fell through
John Rurtusli, who lived on Llod
street with Andrew Sillier, tho prno
cutoi, in the spring of lStni, testified
thai he was at Anthony Miller's hous,.'
on the evening of Starch 17th, to see
Nerushis. He found the defendant
there, and when ho left the defend
ant wns in bed. Joseph Ovunovitch
lived in the Sliskus home. He was not
well on the night of the alleged
tumble, and unable to sleep. He
heard no noise of any kind In the
house except about 2 to :i o'clock In
the morning, when ho heard some one
walking up the stairs.
Domlnlok Strlgus testified to a con
versatlon with Andrew Gordon In Sep
tember last, when Gordon told him
that hu did not sec Nerushas kill Slis
kus. Joseph Slajllinskl said that Gordon
told him that lor $20 he could g,-t
Nerushns out of jail, as he was not
guilty. This conversation took plao
at a stoie on Lloyd stteet soon after
the arrest, Ho also had a conversa
tion with LezofsUv the day after tho
body was found, when Lezofsky -said
that Nerushas was not guilty, but
that ho had to swear In favor of the
Slilleis, who wore against the defend
ant. Anna Ovunovitch testified than
about three months ago Andrew Gor
don caiui- to her house ftho Sliskus
Iioupo) and inquired if that was tin
place whero Sliskus was said to have
been killed. Ho wanted to know tho
location of the fiont door leading

He went to sleep and, got up about 7

About S o'clock StaJIIInskI came along

went after. He there srold a ring lo
Sits. Gordon. Shortly afterwards he
was ai rested by Constable Smith for
disorderly conduct and assault and
battery, and while In the station house
the warrant charging him with mur
der was served. On cross-examination
an effort was mode to secure;
an admission as to conversations with
the county detective. The witness,
however, dneied having any conversa
tion with Sir. Leyshon on the day
after the killing.
Sir. Thomas endeavoied to break:
down his testimony illative to his
whereabouts on the 17th and ISth of

Will Not Interfere.
Pittsburg nnd Allegheny, II Is fair
ly snfn to say, will not Interfere with
any plans of this character Scranton
may formulate nnd attempt to carry
out, in a conversation with The Trib
une correspondent. Senator Fllnn, be
lieving It was n settled fnct tint
Scranton wns opposed to tlio transi
tion, remarked: "Why don't you have
the limit inlsed nnd slay in the third
class?" He was told that Scranton
was undecided as to whether or not It
wished to enter tho second class.
"Well," said the senator, "the second
class charter Is satisfactory to Alle
gheny and there Is no reason I enn see
why It should not work successfully In
Scrnnton. The two cities nio about
of the same size."
Lately, however, there has been a
slow but still noticeable devclopniens
of n feeling among some of the state
politicians that Sewnton's entrance
Into the second class should be en
couraged. They think, so It would ap
pear, thai with Scrnniou seeking new
legislation, or amendments to existing
legislation, In oposltlon to wishes of
I'ittsbuig, tho representatives from
this city and the surrounding dis
tricts would be open to negotiations,
and could be won over to their way
of thinking In factional affairs, by
using the needs of second-class Scran
ton as a lever.
If it does not come to pass that
Scranton will be looking for new legis
lation, this, thing of factional politics
In the state at large Will have to bu
reckoned with. Whether it will work
lo our good or ill remains to be seen.
Largely II will depend on the shrewd
ness ot our local representatives.
NEEDLESS ALARM CAUSED.
Few Cases of Chicken Pox at No. 33
School Have Developed.
Quite a bit of needless alarm has
been caused during the past few days
by the announcement that there was
an epidemic of chicken pox at No. 311
school, which Is located at the corner
of Madison avenue and Pine street.
There have been, It Is true, quite a
few cases of this disease among the
pupils of the school, but the disease
Is of such an unimportant na
Uuo and the proportion of cases
has been so small that the school au
thorities are not In the least fright
