TAKEN FROM FILES IN COMMIS
Case of tho Commonwealth Against
Alderman John Lenten Was Post
poned Bccauso This Very Import
ant Flcco of Evidence Could Not
Be Produced Yesterday This Is
tho First of the Cases Against
Magistrates of tho County to Be
Called for Trial.
Alderman John Lontes, of tl.o Elev
enth ward, was put on trial yester
day afternoon In tho main court room
before Judgo II. w. Archbnld, and
soveral sensations followed. District
Attorney W. R. Lewis stated that
come ono had taken tho transcript,
on which tho charge of Illegally draw
ing money from the county treasury
against Lontes Is founded, from tho
county commissioners' ofuco and that
It cannot be found. He followed this up
by tho statement that ho has this
week called four of the cases ngalnst
magistrates of tho county who. aro
accused in a similar manner to Lcntes,
and In each Instance found that Im
portant witnesses for tho common
wealth had suddenly dropped out of
"I do not want to mnke any ac
cusations nt this time," said Mr, Lew
is, "but there Is something mighty sus
picious about these cases."
Decauco of the absence of the tran
scripts court continued the Lenles
case until today.
"When It was called for trial Attor
neys K. c. Newcomb and C. Ballen
tlne, who nppenr for Lontes, nsked
that the three cases ngalnct him bo
tried at the Fame time, but tho dis
trict attorney objected, saying he was
not preparevl to try all of them nt
that time. Ho elected to go to trial on
the case which charges Lontes with
Illegally darwlng fees for tho caso or
the commonwealth ngalnst Jennie
Itobblns, Fanny Brockway, prosecu
trlx. The warrant In the case was Is
sued on July 27 last, and It Is alleged
by tho commonwealth that Fanny
Brockway died on March 4 precedlng
the Issuing of the warrant.
MRS. BROCKWAY DKAP.
The commonwealth ptoved that the
wan ant was Issued and served by
Deputy Ponstuble Charles Mlrtz oil
Jennie Bobbins at "Wllkes-Barre. tt
was shown by Harry May, Mrs. Brock
way's son, that she has been dead
since last March. The docket from
the county commissioners' ofllco was
offered In evidence to show that Al
derman Lontes collected the fees In
the cat.?. This was objected to by Mr.
Newcomb. He said the docket was
made tip from the alderman's tinn
bcrlpt, and was therefore secondary
ovldencs. He called for tho produc
tion of the transcript.
District Attorney Lewis thereupon
told the court that t-oon after the
grand jury which Indicted the alder
metn had been dUclmnred he was ln
foimed by tho county commlrsloncrvt
that tho ttamicripts In a number of
the cat-PS had disappeared from tlw
ofllco. 13. E. Robathan, deputy corn
mlssloners' clerk, was on the stand
with tho docket at tho time and was
questioned as to the persons who have
access to the transcripts. He suld
clerks in the ofllces and attorneys
have the right to Inspect them un
eiuestloned, and on cross-examination
at the hands of Mr. New-comb he ad
mitted that C. M. DeLong had taken
a great many transcripts from th.
ofllce and could not Kiy that ull ot
them had been returned
MADE A SEARCH.
As to the particular ttanseiipt In
ciuestion ho could t.ay nothing definite.
AV. G. Daniels, thu commlshloner.V
clerk, who was called to Schuylkill
county yestetday to the funeral of a
relative, might have some knowledge
concerning It. Mr. Robathan was in
quested to make a pearch of tho otuce
for the transcript, and did so, report
ing that ho was unable to Und It.
District Attorney Lewis asked that
the case go over until to-day to glvn
Mr. Daniels time to return and If pos
sible throw some light en the mysteri
ous disappearance. Mr. Newcomb ob
jected to a postponement, but Judge
rchbald decided to allow It to uo
over until this morning.
The transcript Is of the greatest Im
portance, for the reason that the de
lcnse will li- that tho prosecutrix In
not the dead Fanny Brockway, but a
Fanny Brockway that Is very much
alive. All thTJ entries In the commis
sioners contained the name "Brock
way," while Lentet.' docket has It
Btookway." The transcript Is nece
f.ary to show whether or not a mis
take wns mode In putting a synopslr
of It In the c oinmHsIonen-' docket.
In tho cominlsslnner.'' olllee It was
stated Jam evening that search had
been made nt periods during the lasr
three months for tho missing tran
Fcrlpt. but without success. It Is Im
probable that Mr. Daniels will bo
able to clear up the mystery, and tho
court will be nsked by the district
attorney to admit tho docket as sec
ondary evidence. It will then be a
case of docket against docket, with
tho advantage In favor of Lcntes' as
tho book of original entry.

A POOR BREAKFAST.
Very Fow People Ent n Good Break
fast. "All 1 want for breakfast Is a roll
and a cup of coffee."
This remark Is heard not only In
hotels, restaurants and lunch rooms
but it Is the usual breakfast order In
tho home cltcle as well. After a
twelvo hours fast It would seem thnt
tho first meal of tho day should bo a
hearty, substantial one, and If wo alt
lived natural, unartlflclal lives, it
would be so, but none of us do, henco
breakfast Is a mero pretence.
Says a latter day philosopher: "Dur
ing mnny years of active business life.
1 never remember having eaten n good
substantial breakfast, but supposed it
w-as of no Importance until I began to
lose apputltc for lunch nnd dinner.
"My physician told mo 1 was a vic
tim of nervous dyspepsia und must
tnke rest and recreation, as no medi
cine would reach tho trouble, but this
advice I could not follow as my busi
ness nffalrs would not permit It, nnd
to get lellcf I resorted to medicines
and prescriptions, and It was purely
accidental that I hit upon ono remedy
which did tho business. Whllo In a
drug store one evening I noticed a
number of people buying Stuart'.i
Dyspepsia Tablets, a widely advertised
preparation for stomach troubles, nnd
the force of example was too much for
me nnd I bought a fifty cent package.
"I took a tablet or two nfter each
meal, and In a week my appetite
picked up, I began to feel my old am
bition for work returning and could
eat a good brenkfast because I wanted
It, and from thnt tlmo to this, I take
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets as regular
ly as I take my meals, not because I
now have any trouble with my stom
ach, but because I don't want to have.

last night on thltd tending, there be

The ordinance was called up by Mr.
Keller and the dlscusfion upon it
liuted for considerably over half rji

passage und championed It through

that It was not perfect nnd that per

but wanted It passed In order that tho
system provided might be given a fair

TIip insurance companies threatened
to put up the rates, ho said, and it
wns absolutely necessary that coun
cils do something at once, not only to
prevent this, but to prevent such an
other conflagration as I ho ono which
wrought such sad havoc on Lacka

The opposition to the ordinance was
led by President Calpin, who paid,
that there could be no moro efficient

HEATING OF COURT HOUSE."
What the Economy Light, Heat nnd
Power Company Says.
The Economy Light, Heat nnd
Power company, who furnish steam
to the court huuse, have requested us
to publish the following facts ns to
the scarcity of h;at there. They
state that In view of the conditions at
tho court house. It could not be other
wist;: that the attention of tho county
commissioners was called to the sit
uation about two months ego by the
Economy company, with a view of
perfecting such nriansroments as
would assure them an nbundanco of
steam for their purposes.
The 'fact of the matter is that yes
terday, when they complained of lack
of steam, the steam pressure in tho
company's pipes was up to Its maxi
mum, ho that thero was no lack ot
steam upon tho company's part. Tho
dlllkully Is that the contract was
made for heating tho court house be
fore the third lloor was added to the
present building. In addition to this,
the commissioners have Installed a fan
to ventilate tho court house, which ra
qultes, of course, extra steam. To
meet the then requirements of the
court house the three-Inch plpo run
ning from the company's mains on
Washington avenue was sufllclent.
In view, however, of the Increased
consumption of steam at the court
house, tho present connections leading
from tho company's main on Wash
ington avenue will not conduct enough
steam to warm tho court house In
severe and windy weather. In addi
tion to nil this, tho radiation in tho
court house Is not sulllelent to coun
teract the cold alp coming in through
the loose windows.
Tho present arrangement Is very un
sdtlsfactory to the company, and they
do not are to continue It. Whether or
not the coutt house Inf tails Its own
plant Is a matter upon which the com
missioners must OKorcl"o their own
Judgment. The company has, how
iivor, plenty of steam to heat tho
building, und will bo glad to furnish
them with It. If they seo fit to pay
tho expense of tin additional plpo from
our main on Spruce stteot op Wash
ington avenue, nnd pay for tho addi
tional steam. Tho county commis
sioners were notllled of tho nbovo facts

OIVEN EIGHTEEN MONTHS IN
His Attorneys Will Take an Appeal
to the Superior Court Max Herr
ing Pleads Guilty and Is Sentenced
to Thirty Daya in the County Jail.
Casea Tried During the Day Before
the Three Judges Doposltlona
Filed in the Schwarta Case Elec
tion Offlcera Appointed.
Jacob Ellman, who was twice con
victed of subornation of, perjury, was
yesterday sentenced by Judge George
S. Purdy t.i e'gfiteen months Impris
onment in the penltentlarv ; pass
ing sentence Judge Purdy said:
Jacob L'llman, I think .sou were well and ably
defended by counsel. You have been twice con
Iclcd upon an Indictment charging ou with
subornation of perjury. After the first verdict,
upon a review of the caie and testimony, we did
not feel warranted In pissing upon 5.011 sentence
as we feel should ba imiioscd for an ofTcne of
this kind, upon a verdict against )ou supported
almost entirely by the oath of the witness. Mix
Herring, and for that reason we granted you a
new trial, while at the ame time we believed
jou were guilty.
A second Jury has beard your rase, there
being Spiiic additional testimony in It, and they
have reached the same conclusion. Although the
witness. Max Herring, admitted that ho had
committed perjury on several occasions, and
there can lie no doubt upon that point, It Is
found that the Jury believed that his story In
court was true, and we were also so Impressed.
There would seem to be no motl-c on the part of
Max to falsify in reference to this matter: we can
see that he can gain nothing by bringing jou
Into trouble, by making this charge ogilnst
you, and we are of the opinion, as the Jury were,
that Max Herring In court told the truth. There
Is in this case some coirobnrallng evidence, as
we view it, In support of Ids story: The evi
dence of his cell-male, and the evidence of Mr.
nice, who went with yon to take the deposition
of .Max at the Jail. This Is a serious offene.
The highway robber meets his victim upon tho
fad and takes from him his purse, takes only
his pioperlyj the crime of perjury nny not only
deprive a person of his pioperty, but may de
prive that person of reputation, it may deprive
him of his liberty, ami, there is no doubt that
persons have imlntalnrAl fale chaiges sgalnst
others, false claims through perjury, and doubt
less that righteous claims hue been defeated
through the same means.
GUILTY HAVE ESCAPED.
Persons have been falsely accused and convict
ed through perjured testimony, no doubt, and
guilty persons have escaped through the lime
means; doubtless that poisons have been brought
to the gallons, even, thiough perjured testimony.
It Is a serious ofTen'e, and we do not understand
why our law-makers graded this offense among
the lesser grades of crime known as nilsde
mcanors; we think It ought to bo classed with
the higher class of crime known as felonies.
Your offense consists In procuring another to
commit that crime, and It Ls no less an offense.
The limit of the penalty for this offense Is a tine
of fcjOO and seven years In the penitentiary; we
might Impose that fine and penalty upon you if
we felt that our duty called us to do so in this
case. Your counsel have asked us to be lenient
with you. We arc alvvajs disposed to be so. We
never intend In Imposing sentence to be harsh,
but. notwithstanding that, wc have a duty to
perform, and wc must not forget it. It ls al
wavs an unpleasant duty to Impose sentence upon
one convicted of crime, but wc must not let our
personal feelings over-ride our seni-e of duty; wc
owe it to society, we owe a duty to the position
It is unfortunate tint others must softer as
well as jourself, as a result of your acts, but
for that we are not responsible. It is, perhaps,
true that jour wife and your family will sutler
In this muter equally with jourwlf, but ou
must remember that jou have brought this upon
them, and not we. That is a matter which is
entirely beyond our cuntiol, nnd j-ou should have
thought of this when, you concocted this nefari
ous scheme; jou ought to have kept your hands
clean. The sentincc of the court is that j-ou,
Jacob l'llman, pay the costs of piosccutlon in
this case, that jou pay a line of $100, that jou
undergo an Imprisonment in the penitentiary for
the Eastern district of Pennsjlvania, located in
the city of Philadelphia, for the pciiod of one
j ear and blv, months, and stand convicted until
the tcntence is compiled with.
MRS. ELLMAN CRIED.
As sentence was Imposed Ellnmn's
wife burst Into tears and her lamenta
tions could be hoard throughout the
court rooms. Ellmnn's attorneys, W.
W. Baylor and John J. Murphy, will
take an appeal to the Superior court
In the case nnd will endeavor to have
the appeal allowed as a supersedeas
that Elmman may enjoy his liberty
while the appeal Is pending. The at-tornej-s
are hopeful of yet being able
to save Ellman from tho penitentiary-.
Immediately after tho sentence of
Ellman, Max Herring, who has been
detained In Jail for monthts as a wit
ness, was called up and pleaded guilty
to perjuring himself when ho swore
out a warrant against Daisy Miller.
He was sentenced to thirty days In tho
county Jail. He has been In Jail for
