Judged Guilty of Selling Liquor
Without n License Chicuva Was
Thrown Into the Klvcr.
Another Instance of the deReneraey
of Carbondale's notorious bud boy,
Arthur YiitniB, was disclosed In Judge
Kdwards' court yesterday. He was ar
raigned on the charges of assault and
battery and larceny nnd receiving. The
prosecutor was William Hicks, a
butcher, residing on the outskirts of
Carhondale. In November last, Youiik
begun lonllng about Hick's slaughter
lie-tine, and out of charity, as much as
anything else, Mr. Hicks paid him for
doing odd jobs. Young's badness, how
ever, could not be repressed even by
kindness. One day it burst forth In
one of its wonted torrents nnd once
more In consequence Young is en route
The assault nnd battery was com
mitted mi Mr. Hicks' 11-year-old boy.
Young took the lad Into a woods, tied
him to a tree, piled brush about him
and then attempted to set lire to It in
true Indian laslilon. The brush, how
ever, would not burn readily and be
fore Young could get It burning the
Hicks boy broke away from the tree
and ran home. Young In his dime
novel readings had learned that true
borderland ethics required that after
burning the captives at the stake it
was customary to drive off with their
DHOVK PIG AWAY.
The only thing approaching live
stock that happened at that time to be
about the slaughter house was a drove
of pigs. Even Indians on their "Ileet
footed mustangs" would not attempt to
drive off a drove of pigs. Young picked
out one of the best, released it from
the enclosure and proceeded to drive
it Into the country. The pig got aw.iy
from him however.
It did not take the jury long to
find him guilty of both charges.
A verdict of guilty was secured Jiy
the Municipal league In their ca.-e
ngulust Joseph Ahearn, of Lincoln
Heights, charged with selling liquor
without a license. The defense put for
ward testimony to show that on Aug.
7 and Sept. iO, the dates on which tho
league's detectives alleged they bought
liquor from Ahearn, he was at other
places than his alleged speakeasy.
In tho case of Edward Moran and
William Moran, father and son, charged
with-aggravated assault and battery on
Charles Stanton, the jury, after being
out nearly nineteen hours, came in at
9.30 o'clock yesterday morning with a
verdict of not guilty, the defendants
to pay three-fourths of the costs, and
the prosecutor one-fourth.
Morgan Sweeney, who was convicted
of assault and battery on the young
son of his neighbor, Anthony McGurn,
was sentenced by Judge Edwards to
pay a fine of ?13 and the costs. The
jury had recommended extreme mercy.
Court Interpreter Woyslmer had to
put on an assistant yesterday after
noon. In Judge Kelly's court one Igmiii
Konocko was on trial for hitting Wal
ter Shemlnlskl, of Keyset Valley, on
the head with a beer glass on pay day
night at the Continental. In Judge
Wound's court, at the same time, Simon
Hinerrlak and George Chlcura, of Oly
phant, were on trial on cross charges
growing out of it free fight on Itlver
street, the night of Sept. 14. Chlcura
ns returning from a church fair when
he encountered Hinerrlak nnd a crowd
of his friends. Bad blood was existing
between the two, and It did not tnke
them long to get into a fight. Cliicttra
used a set of brass knuckles very ef
fectively on Hinerrlak. but Hlnerriak's
friends were too numerous for both
Chlcura and the knuckles, and, taking
the brass knuckles from him, they putn
meled him with them until they thought
they hud killed him, and then throw
him Into the river.

in the case In which Jnmrs Collins
was charged with being the accom
plice of John Fnrrell In tho theft or
Jewelry from Squire'-- store In Pcck

nt the lost term. The commonwealth
failed to sliow that Collins ever had
tho goods In his possession or that Ins

Barnard Kabatchlck was returned
not guilty of tho clinrges of receiving
stolen goods and fatting to keep a rec
ord of tlie purchase of Junk, as pre
ferred by C, p. Slack.
Henry Kennedy, of Forest City, wus
adjudged not guilty of tlie charae of
cruelty to animals, preferred by Livery
man Eugene K. Deinlugs. Ho was ac
cused of abusing a horse hired from
tlie defendant. The evidence, Judge
Edwards said, failed to disclose cruelty.
He might bo properly accused of neg
ligence by bailee, but ho could not bo
found guilty of cruelty to animals. Tho
Jury was left to dispose of the costs
and placed them on the defendant.
Lizzie Graham, of Providence road,

C. II. Truesdale did not put In an

blockade of the mountain roads pre
vented him from having his witnessed

should have done likewise. A verdict
of not guilty was entered, and the costs
