After Being Committed Under Heavy
VBnll for Larceny Gorman Tries to
Assault the Hugo Officer Runs a
, Block but Is Hit by Third Bullet
, After Constable Fires In Air Twice.
.' Eddie Gorman, known locally by the
nickname (if "Oyster," had the distinc
tion last evening of being the first
prisoner committed to Jail In this citv
in the twentieth century. Ho reached
there last night about 7.15 with a bul
let In his kneecap, whlrh he received
while Hying to escape from Constabltl
Stephen Gllby.
Gbrmun wriB arrested yesterday on a
charge of larceny, preferred by tht'
proprietors of the Forest House in
Simpson. He was accused of looting
the money drawer. Ho was haled be
fore Alderman Delevan, of the Sixth
waul, and the hearing was held earlv
last evening. The evidence was over
whelmingly against Gorman, several
witnesses testifying to having seen
him commit the theft.
Alderman Delevnn at the close of
the hearing held Gorman in $300 boll
for trial and committed him to the
custody of Constable Stephen Gllby,
with commitment papers to take him
to the county Jail. Constable Gllby Is.
a smooth-faced man of herculean
frame, and It Is only necessary for
most prisoners to glance at his huge
form to convince them thift It would bo
well to go along pehceably. Kelylng
nn his great strength and on the prom
ise of Gorman to go along quietly,
Gllby did not put handcuffs on him but
held him by the shoulder.
The "Oyster" Is a pretty husky-looking
boy himself, but there was no In
dication In the way lie started out of
the alderman's ottlce that ho would at
tempt to mensurc his strength against
his giant custodian's. Instead, he used
tho first few moments of his enforced
stroll In bewailing his hard luck and
emphatically reiterating that he hadn't
"dun nuthln' to nobody," and "that
I'm mo worst inlmy."
This monologue continued for sev
eral blocks and Gllby, although he
know his prisoner to be a "tough"
character, bad begun to feel a sort of
commiseration for his charge, when
Gorman suddenly changed his de
meanor. The two had got In front of
tho Belmont school when Gorman
quickly wheeled nround and made a
vicious swing at Gllby. Just at that
moment Gllby was looking straight M
"Oyster," and saw the wicked sledge
hammer blow In time to dodge. Again
Goiman stiuck out, and this time hit
Gllby In the Jaw.
The blow hurt enough to cause the
constable to relax his hold a trifle,
tiorman Immediately wrenched loo3u
ind started to run. Ollby called on
him to stop, but be paid no heed and
kept on, gaining on his pursuer. Then
Gllby drew his tevolver. lie fired a
bullet Into tho air, thinking the sound
would hnlt him. But Gorman kept on.
Then Gllby fired a second shot, this
thnu tiring low so as to hit him in tho
lpgs if possible. This apparently had
no effect except to make Gorman let
out n few additional links of srieed.
Again Gllby tired low, and at tho
third report Gorman threw h's hands
iver ills head and tumbled headlong,
Just as ho wag about to go around a
corner Into an alley near Joseph F.
Robinson's house, at 19 Belmont street.
Gorman fell on his face, and said ns
the constable seized him: "You got
mo that time."
Gllby saw that he was unable to
walk and had one of the crowd that
collected telephone for a cab. Livery
man Snyder drove up, and prisoner
and constable rode down to the cltv
building, where the constable had to
have assistance In getting him into tho
Jail and cell No. 6. Then Gllby tele
phoned to Dr. Glllls, who speedily nr
ilved and made a superficial examina
tion. The physician found that tho
bullet had entered the kneecap of tho
left leg, .had glanced downward and
lodged in the bone of the leg. He did
not think it wise to probe for the bul
let In the cell of the Jail, with Its In
adequate appuiteuances fori an opera
tion, nor did he favor tho prisoner be
ing removed to Scrnnton, as he said If
Goiman caught cold he would lose the
The constable wns In a quandary, as
his commitment papers made him re
sponsible for the prisoner and ho did
not know whether he would bo allowe.1
under the law to tnko him to, the hos
pital, en Alduiman Delevan was np
ltealed to by telephone and the exig
encies of the case explained. He ad
vlsed Gllby, to consult the hospl .it
authorities. The hospital wan then
called up by 'phone, nnd the head nurso
referred Ollby to Dr. Nlles, M. D tho
surgeon, who was at his residence on
Main street. Dr. Nlles told Gllby to
hire a cab, bring Gorman to his roil
dence und then tnke him to the Emer
gency" hospital.
Dr. Glllls made a temporary bandaga
at tho city Jail, swathed the Injured
limb In a number of yards of linen and
a bunch of cotton, nnd tho prisoner
was taJten to Dr. Nlles' office.
After the patient had been taken to
Dr. Nlles's house, tho doctor decided
that the best thing to do was to got the
wounded man to the hospital with the
utmost dispatch. He accordingly got
Into the cab with Gorman, while Gll
by perched outside with the driver.
On their arrival at tho hospital the
surgeons decided on an Immediate op
eration to extract the bullet. So Gor
man was put under the Influence of an
anaesthetic and the bullet probed for.
It was found that a large blood vessel
bad been cut by tho leaden pellet,
and tho prisoner had bled greatly.

Tho bullet was found and extracted,
but up to a lata hour Gorman had
not recovered from the effects of tho
anesthetic,, and the head nurse could
not tell how he had sustained tho op
eration nor whether complications
might ensue,
Gllby was extremely perturbed last
night over the results of his pistol
practice. He said that ho had not put
handcuffs on his man because ho had
promised to be peaceable. As ho was
responsible for his prisoner ho could
not allow him to escape, and ho used
every precaution to not hit him in a
vital spot. It is probably very lucky
for Gorman that tho gigantic constable
Is nn unerring mnrksmnn, for if he had
not been the bullet might have pone
trated some vulnerable orgnn and thus
ended n career, which Is, to say the
least, unsav6ry. Tho constable has
figured in many despcrato cases, but
alwnys as an officer of tho law, and
he Is famed locally for his courage and
grit. When he has been sent to make
an arrest he got his man, no matter
how largo the odds against him.
A Resolution Which Will Probably
Be Passed at the Board of Health's
Next Meeting.
Now that small pox has become epi
demic In so many cities of the United
States, especially In New York city,
with which Carbondalo has so many
ways of frequent communication, the
question of vaccination has been n
much-discussed topic among doctors
and citizens of this city. In very
many localities of America, many of
them greatly remote from the infected
points, not only school children, but all
others who pass freely among their
fellows have been compelled to sub
mit to the Irritating process of having
their health safeguarded.
The following resolution was pre
pared and passed nt the last meeting
of the board of health, looking to
ward this result, as far as school chil
dren are concerned, taking the form of
a letter to tho supeilntendent of
schools In this city:

Inquire at Tribuni oifUc, llutko bulldi.ijr, Car
One Is Suggested to Relieve tho Con
gestion at Emergency Hospital.
At the present time there Is a sore
need for more room at tho Emergency
hospital, Thero are more private pa
tients thero now than there has been
In tho history of tho Institution. Every
room set aside for patients is titled.
In addition to this even the nurses'
rooms and the nurses' parlors have
been utilized to a large extent in re
lieving suffering and caring for the
sick. These faithful caretakers have
been at a great inconvenience lately,
but they havo cheerfully incommoded
themselves to make room for the pa
tients needing hospital treatment.
In this condition of affairs It has
been suggested, and the suggestion is
a timely one, that a nurses' home or
residence be erected near the hospital
in order to provide shelter and a per
manent abiding plnco for the hospital
nurses. Even in the times when tho
Institution Is not crowded they cannot
get nwny from the scenes of their vo
cation even when oft duty. At best
their lives are humdrum, self-sacrlflc-Ing
ones, and when they do have a
little time they can call their own It
should bo spent outside the walls of
the hosnitnl.
This Is nn excellent opportunity for
a local philanthropist to do a splendid
act. There are many benevolently
minded persons In our city who could
endow n nurses' home and build one
without feeling the relaxation on his
purse to u grent extent. Tho entire
cost of such a home would not. ex
ceed $1,500, and this amount could not
bo spent In a better cause right In
our own cltv.
The time to endow this home, If such
a step Is to bo taken, Is now. Leaving
money for tho purpose after death Is
a poor way, for it may be a long time
before that occurs. Tho nurses' home
should bo started at once, nnd the
philanthropist who wants It done right
should see to "the building of It him
self. This is a most worthy cause,
and It Is sincerely hoped by nil well
wishers of the communtty that these
faithful ministers of the sick wilt not
much longer be compelled to give up
their own beds to suffering mankind.
Lunch En Route.
An unfamiliar scene was witndssel
In the Delaware and Hudson depot in
this city yesterday noon. A theatrical
tioupe bound from Port Jervls to
Plttston cumo to this city by way of
Honesdale, arriving here at 12.2(5. As
they wished to take the train leaving
here at 12.46 for Plttston they con
cluded they would not have time lo
get dinner. But a bright mind con
ceived the idea of telegraphing to the
Hotel American here to have luncheon
brought down to the depot to incut
them on the arrival of the train. Pro
prietor Williams of the hotel hus lo I
to good purpose, for when the hurried
Thespians got here they found a smok
ing; hot lunch waiting for them. Six
teen were In the party and In the
twenty minutes between trains tins
depot wns tho scene of considerable
animation nnd mastication.
