Mr. Fuller Brings Out Some of Its
More or Less Interesting History
at Yesterday's Hearing.
If It wasn't that thnt very sarcastic
Mr. l'tiller, of the Luzerne bar, was a
MranRer within our gates, some one
mUht lie templed to llse up and say
he wat a hold, unnlce person.
Yesterday, In the hem In? In the
Ttocky Olen Injunction case, before
Judge Kelly, he had the effionteiy to
nttempt to brinp out by documentary
and paiole testimony that Arthur
Frothlnslmm wni not acting In Rood

across the right of way of the defend
ant company.
Why In the world Mr. rrothlnRham
inuld want to block n railroad, ns Mr.
ruller would slly Intimate, Ia not dls
clojod, but be that as It may, Mr. Ful
ler tried to make It appear to Judge
Kelly that It was to block the railroad,
tather than to ionstruct n rctlly-trtily
water plant, that the reset voir was
He showed that, eaily last jcar.
OeoiKC A. I.ce, one of the ptomotcrs of
the now toad, had dealing with Mi.
Fiothlngham icgardlng the pcllIlng ot
a light of way thiough tho timt In
nuestion; that on May LM, of last car,
Mlt-s Annette He.noldp, In whop name
tho propeity was held, made and ac
knowledged n deed to the (.Jleii Illdgo
Ccmeteiy association for this nfoicsald
tract of land; that 110 one could bo In
duced to do any limylng thcie, and the
cemeteiy scheme was diopped, and that
after the ionic of the railroad was laid
out, the tcsenolr was dedicated so that
the hteast of the diun was tweho feet
below the line of the railroad.
The unnlce Mi. Fuller fuither made
It appear that Mr. Frothlnghnm knew,
up is commonlv known, that ,1 lallway
can not p.eicl..e a light of eminent
domain ngalnst 11 water company's
light of eminent domain, and can not
condemn property used ns a builal
gioiilid or place of w 01 .ship.
"Now Mr. Fiothlngham," diawled
out the luconMoi,itc Mr. Fullet, "ou
have, as wo bee, Incot pointed ourselt
as a cemeteiy association and a water
company please toll us when you pro
pose to hae youiself Incoipoiated as
11 place ot woinhlp."
Trior to Mr. Ftothlngham's examin
ation tho defendants put on the stand
H. A. Hoffman, a Wllkcs-n.ine civil
englneri, who told that while ho was
stttvelne for the now load .ruly hint
year he encounteted Mr Fiothlngham
and Ali's licvuolds on tho ti.ict now
in dispute and was told that he

so ho says, that the law against seiz

was no. operatle until there had bean
some buii.tls made. To this, tame the
icjoinder, so Mi. Hoffman declares,
that "just as soon ns ou people make

Later Jlr. Frothlngham took the
stand and denied Inning made thli
nloe quoted utterance, nnd Miss Hey
nolds aeired that she did not le
tncniher any such conversation.

The People's Bank
Alleged Slayer of Edwin Schoonovor
Has Been Visiting at Home of
Henry Rodney Since Friday, June
28.He Donios the Murder of
Schoonover, but Admits Having
Boen in His Company Wednosday,
Juno 26 Sheriff Armstrong Will
Tako Him to Wayne County.
Wlnans Hull, of Carbondale, was nr
reatod jestcrdny noon at Mnple lake,
near Moscow, by Captain of Police
John Davis, on suspicion of having
murdered Edwin Schoonover, of Lack
awanna, avenue, whoso decomposed re
main were found at Lnko Lodoro last
Hull admits being In Schoonovcr's
company, Wednesday, June 26, the day
the dead man was known to be at Lake
Lodore, but denies having slain or
robbed him. He takes his arrest very
unconcernedly, nnd although the cir
cumstantial evidence against him Is of
the most convincing nnture, he smokes
cigarettes In his prison cell, nnd smiles
a contemptuous, aggravating smile.
The coat found on him was stnlryd
with blood, but there were no other
apparent Indications of guilt. He was
arrested at tho homo of Henry Rod
ney, the husband of a cousin of Hull.
Rodney l a fntmer at Maple lake,
which Is about four miles from Mos
cow, nnd It Is nt his home that the sus
pect has been since Friday, June 2R, hi
hosts not knowing that the police all
over the state were looking for their
A telephone message wns recelxed
from a Moscow resident by Superin
tendent of Police Frank Robllng yes
terday morning, In which the Infor
mation -was toneyed thnt a man an
swering the descilptlon of Hull, who
hnd, moreover, declaied .such to be his
name, wns at Rodney's home. The de
scilptlon given did not nt all tally with
tho one of Hull which Supeilntendent
Robllng possessed. The stranger was
described as fully six feet In height,
wheioas Hull 1 known to be only of
medium lze. Captain Davis, iho Is
acting detective nt present, by Instruc
tions of the chief, left the city shortly
after 10 o'clock on the quest and, on
arriving at Moscow drove over to the
Rodney farm, where he found Hull.
Walking up to tho young man, the
captain quietly called him, and as he
tinned nround. lemaiklng. "Yes, Hull's
my name," the police ofllcer laid his
hand firmly on his shoulder, and said:
"You are my ptlsoner. You arc wanted
fot the tnuidcr of Edwin Schoonover."
The Rodney family were greatly woi
rled over the aircst, having entertained
not the least suspicion that Hull's visit
had been caused by any sinister motive.
He bad nirlved nt the home, 1'ildny,
June 2S, meeting his cousin, Mis. Rod
ney, for the Hi st time. He told her he
had only iccently ascertained tho re
lationship and, desirous of taking a
llttlo outing In the country, had singled
out bis own family as tho proper per
sona with whom to stay.
Hull was dilven over to tho station
and hi ought to the city by the captain
on a Lackawanna pusher, 1 caching
hcie shoitly after 4 o'clock, and being
met nt the station by Patiolmen
Thomas Jones nnd Sloat. Hull was
taken before Maglsttatc MIII.u, who
icmanded him to the custody of the
W.ijne county official. Ho was then
lemoved to the cential station, wheie
ho wns examined by Superintendent
Robllng. Shetllf Armbiust, nf Wa.vno
county, ni lived In the city during the
afternoon and will leave the city with
Hull this moinlng.
Hull admitted being In company with
a man, nf whose name he claimed to be
Ignotant, but whoso description an
swered to that of Schoonover, on Wed
nesday. June 2ti, nt the lake. He also
acknowledged taking him to his cous
in's for .1 meal, but claimed to have left
him theie duting the nfternoon, nnd
saw nothing mote of him. He ad
mitted having had a knife In hi pos
session that day, but said he gave it
to his brother.
Alter lldlng to Carbondale on a load
of hay and Incidentally quarreling with
the men nn the wagon, ho slept at his
home In Carbondale, Wednesday night.
Tho next moinlng ho ioso eaily, at
tended to some chores, among them the
washing of a buggy, and went to Jer
myn by street car. From there ho rode
to this city on his bicycle and the same
day lode from here to Slmerson's, and
stayed at the latter place Thutsday
night, sleeping at the hotel.
On the following morning he went to
his cousin's and remained there since.
He scoffs at all Intimations as to his
guilt, and defiantly rematked to Super
intendent Robllng: "If I killed tho
man, why should I hang nround hcie,
Instead of getting as far away as pos
tlhleV" A careful search of his person failed
to reveal any money or weapon, al
though Schoonover had over JS0 with
him, besides a valuable watch and
chain, when he left home. Hull was
loughly dicssed, nnd the light serge
coat he woio was stained with daik,
rusty-looking patches of blood on each
"What me these?" asked Superin
tendent Robllng, sharply, 86 his eye lit
upon them.
"Yellow mud," nnsweied Hull prompt
ly. "I hnd a tumble from my wheel
and Hint's how I got them."
Tho stains had soaked through the
cuffs, however, leaving dark blotches
on the lining, and It was very appai
cnt that something of a far different
uatuio than mud catibed them. The left
cuff Is much more splashed nnd bespat-
tcicd than tho right one, and fiom the
condition of each It could be seen that
efforts had been Industriously made to
nmiovo the tell-tale spots.
The wheel In Hull's possession was
at llrst thought to be ono stolen from
A. R. Jones, of the Carbondale Review,
who left It tn front ot the Globe store.
Saturday, Juno 29, nnd It vvll be brought
to tho city by Captain Davis. How
ever, as Hull is known to have been at
Maple lake on that date, he Is removed
fiom complicity in that theft.
Last night Hull wns measured, ac
cording to the nertlllon system, by
Superintendent Robllng, In the pres
ence of Sergeant Ridge way, Rank
Alarm Otllcer Thompsrxi and a Tribune
man Hull wns biought out of his cell
by the sergeant. A handcuff was on
his ono wrist, but in his free hand he
had a cigarette, which he was smoking
in as nonchalant an careless a mm?
ner as though he were not under sus
picion of a most foul crime for which
his neck Is endangered.
He stepped under the measuring
beam, clgaretto In hnnd, nnd ns he
looked nt Iho stein-fated superintend
ent nnd two officers, n smllo actually
crossed his dark face, and through tho
measuring ho continued to smile nt In
terval, as though he really enJoed
the situation. He Is not a particularly
bad-looking fellow, this man Hull, nnd
doesn't look like U10 oidlnaiy suspected
Ho I live feet, seven nnd n half
Inches In height and weigh nbnut HR
pounds. His hair I dark b-own, nnd
his eyes also are brown. He I very
dark, and his features are regular.
The contour of his face I rather boy
ish, tho erfect being heightened by the
smooth upper lip. He formerly wore a
moustache, nnd only shnved It off last
Sunday, which he admitted to Super
intendent Robllng, nddlng an Instant
Inter, n he saw that this act might
be taken ns n partial precaution ngalnst
recognition, tint ho was In the habit
of shaving hi moustache about once
every two weeks or so during the sum
mer time.
On being asked during the measure
ment whether there wete any distin
guishing marks or scars on his person,
he laughed freely nnd, remarking.
"Yes, I've got plenty of scars," rolled
up his sleeve nnd showed a scar about
an Inch long on hi left arm nnd sev
eral smaller ones on his other nrm. He
l 24 enrs of age, nnd was born In
Only once did he evince any signs of
wenkenlng or being touched In a weak
spot. Thnt was when the superintend
ent made refeience to the watch and
chain of Schoonover, which Hull I
known to have tried to dispose of In
Carbondale. When this was mentioned
the prisoner winced slightly, nttompted
no explanation of the circumstance, nnd
then boldly denied ever hclng In pos
session of the articles.
He rested quietly at the ntntlon Inst
night, caused no disturbance whatso
ever, and nppearcd quiet and content
ed, ptcsentlng a marked conttnst to the
prisoner In the next cell, against whom
the charge of drunkenness was lodged,
and whose ciles nnd lamentations could
bo heatd all over tho block.
On These Date3 the Recorder Will
Inquire Into the Needs of Police
and Fire Departments.
Recorder W. L. Council will next
Monday begin a thoiough Investiga
tion ot the Hie department, Its pres
ent condition, needs, etc.
"Wo must do somefhlng," said the
lecordcr yestetday, "to meet the con
ditions which caused the jalsj of rate?
duilng the spring. I can't tell Just
whnt will be clone or what may bo
necessat y until I have carefully gono
over tho department."
About August 1 the Reeo'der w'll
make a close examination lnli the
workings of the police department and
Its general efficiency. Until this task
has been completed he will not tako
up the matter of filling the vacancy
caused by the resignation of City De
tective Moir.
Many of tho councilmen aie opposed
to having the city employ a detective
who Is known a such. They believe
a better system Is to have a man de
tailed from tho force for special duty,
as occasion seems to require.
