A BIT SPICY
HOLQATB QUITE CAUSTIC
IN HIS COMMENTS.
In Criticising tho Charge of Judge
Aichbald in the Benin Case He De
clared That tho Court Was Capri
cious and Displayed Animus.
Right of Piscary by Prescription
Ono of the Problems Submitted
from Lackawanna Incteased
Liquor License Cane Is Dropped.
It was only his vurcful choice of
words, probably, that prevented Attor
ney It. II. Holguto from being "Inter
rupted" by the superior court yester
day, In his argument for a now trial
In the Attorney Georgo W. Bcale case.
The principal ground on which the
appeal Is based Is that lhccoiirt below,
Judge Archbuld, was unfair In his
charge to the jury und In endeavoring
to demonstrate the unfairness of llic
charge Mr. Holgate made some very
Not tho least among them was Hint
the Judge was capricious nnd that he
displayed animosity. The court erred,
Mr. Holgate alleged, In unduly and for
cibly commenting on evidence unfavor
able to the defendant, and In not pre
senting the evidence of tho defendant
with the same force and clearness and
detail gheu the evidence of tho com
monwealth. The defendant. Attorney Beale, in
December, 1SS9, was convicted of em
bezzling $1,523.19 from the estate of F.s
ther Meade, deceased, of which he be
came executor under tlte will of his
client, R. K. Kills, brother of Mrs.
Meade. Kills had S4.79S.0.7 standing to
his credit hi the First National bank.
Mr. Beale checked out the whole
amount. Mrs. Meade died eighteen
months after her brother's death, and
when her sons came to collect her
share of thovnoney they were offered
certificates of slock in a defunct coal
company, with the explanation that
their mother's money, at her direction,
had been invested In these securities.
The cnildien refused lo believe this
story and after three years of fruitless
effort at collecting tho money, they had
the attorney arrested for embezzlement.
HINGE OF TIIH CASB.
The case hinged on the truth or fal
sity of the claim that Mrs. Meade had
directed the attorney to invest the
money for her. Three witnesses, George
Marshall, George Ludlow and Mrs. Lu
clnda Cook, testified to being present
when Mrs. Mende is alleged to have
given the directions and that they re
membered Hint what Mr. Beale alleged
about the conversation with Mrs.
Mende was substantially true.
On the other hand, was strong tes
timony that at the time airs. Meade
is alleged to havp visited Mr. Beale's
odlce, she was sick in bed at her son's
homo in Madlsonvifle, nnd had been for
several weeks. The attending physi
cian, Dr. FIke, declared that Mrs.
Meade was so ill from the time of her
brother's death until she, herself, died,
that she was not able to have been
moved to Scranton, to say nothing of
her having made the journey unat
tended. In further refutation of the claim that
the money was invested for airs, arcade
at her direction, tlio surviving relatives
told that Attorney Beale at various
times after their refusal of the coal
company stock, ngreed to pay tho
money to them if given time.
The sentence of tho court was that he
restore the money nnd spend six
months in jail. A rule for a new trial
was secured, but tin- new trial wan re
fused. Then an appeal was taken to
the .superior court.
The commonwealth, lepresented by
George M. AVntson, In arguing yester
day against the granting of a new trial
contented itself with a refutation of
the allegations of unfairness In Hie
judge's charge, and 11 brief review of
the facts of the case.
BASSETT PAID COSTS.
Another case In which much Interest
attached to tho arguments wns the
famous Bassett pond case. Involving
the right of piscary by piescriptlon.
Hassett pond Is located near Fleet
vllle. II. C. Glbbs and George G.
GIbbs own most of the land mound It
and claim ownership to tho lake. Do
AVilton Sweet, a neighbor, was fish
ing there one day In June, isy.'i, when
the two Glbbs ordered him away and
brought suit lo recover daningos for a
perch which ho had caught,
For nl number of years a goodly por
tion of the people of the neighborhood
disputed tho right of the Glbbs family
to say who should or should not fish
In tho lake and this Incident resulted
In the question being brought to a test.
The plntntirrs proved title to the
pond, but admitted that other adjacent
farms extended to its shores. Tho de
fendant showed that he had Ashed In
tho pond without let or hlndiauce for
over 21 years and thereby ucqulred a
right to Ilsh "by prescription," or
what In n laud cnfco would bo com
monly termed "squatter's rigid."
Judge Edwards ruled against tlio de
fendant's claim and directed a verdict
for tho plaintiff In tho sum of six
cents. Tho nrguments yesterday were
made by A. A. Chaso for the appellant

The care of M, J, Ruddy against

Ruddy furnished stono for the con

defaulted and Ruddy sued Repp for
tho price of th5 stone, alleging that
Repp was noting as contractor for fur

ed that the only dealings u had with
Ruddy wns to tell him ouo time that
Ihu school district was Indebted lo A'an
Loon. Tho jury gave a verdict against
Repp and ho appealed.
Mr. Hannah, In his argument, point
ed out that tho account against Repp
on which the suit wns brought was In
dexed In Ruddy's ledger under the let
ter "AY" Indicating that Ruddy had
expected to bo paid by A'an Loon und

The assessors will sit oil the above
dates between the hours of !) a. m. and
12 m. tind 1.S0 and 5 p. m. If there aro
too many appeals from any of tho
wards to be heard on the particular
day or days set aside for the hearing
of them, they will be heard on the
Saturday next following. Tho asses
sors desire the taxpayers, to distinctly
understand that when Feo. 22 Is past
and gone they will on no account hear
any further appeals.
aiatters are going to be complicated
somewhat by reason of the fact that
no notices are to be sent to the tax
payers setting fortli tho amount of
their assessment as has been done In
past years. The assessors say that
there Is nothing In the law obliging
them to send out notices and aver that
even if there was they haven't a single
cent left to have them printed and to
pay the postage. In former years tho
notices hnve been distributed from
house to house by the ward assessors
but the ollice of ward assessor has now
been dispensed with.
Taxpayers must accordingly tnke It
for granted that they aro assessed and
If desirous of securing a statement of
their assessment can do so by calling
