AFTER YEARS OP WAITING
Detectives James O'Brien and
Thomas J. Heffeman Are to Get
the S1,000 Reward.
"Detectives James O'Brien and Thom
as J. Heffeman. of this city, after a
wait of nearly fourteen yeais, are about
to receive the reward of $1,000, offered
for the arrest of the murderers of J. B.
McClure and Hugh Flanagan' says
last evening's Wllkes-Barre Times.
"McClure and Flanagan were mur
dered In October, 18SS. by 'Red Nose
Mike' and his accomplices, while driv
ing towards the Lehigh Valley cut-off,
back of Miner's Mills, with $16,000,whlcb
they had drawn from the Wyoming Na
tional bank, of this city, to pay off the
laborers engaged In building the road.
McClure was the paymaster, and Flana
gan, who was an employe of the con
tractor building the road, was driving
the buggy In which the money was be
ing taken to the works.
" 'Red Nose Mike' and two of his fellow-countrymen,
Bevlvlno and Velala,
knowing the men had the monev In
their possession, lay In wait along the
mountain ro.nl n few miles back ot
Miner's Mills, and shot them from nm
btihh. Immediately after the perpetra
tion of the crime, the county commis
sioners offered the reward, and Messrs.
O'Brien and Heffeman finally ran out
the clues and caused the arrest of 'Red
Nose Mike.' who Mas tried and exe
cuted. The other two men escaped from
this country and went where they weie
later apprehended, tried and sentenced.
"Before the reward could Iip paid,
however, claims "were filed by three
other detectives, Charles McFadden,
William Roberts nnd James Baines, and
the county commissioners refused to
pay over any of the money until the
courts could decide which of the live
claimants were entitled to It.
"The matter was taken before the
equity court, and yesterday an opinion
was handed down by the court denying
the claims of McFadden, Roberts and
Baines and ordering the county com
missioners to pay the money to O'Brien

JURY HAS THE
ARGENTIS, AT ALL EVENTS,
WILL NOT HANG.
Judge Edwards Rules That the Evi
dence Would Not Warrant a Ver
dict of Murder In the First Degree.
Defense Tries to Show That the
Accused Was Home In Bed at the
Time of the Killing William Cot
ton Acquitted of tho Charge of
Picking a Drunken Kan's Pockets.
The case In which John Argcntls Is
charged with tho killing of Harry B.
Frederick last Christmas night, at a
house of Ill-fame on Providence road,
was given to the Jury at 4.20 o'clock
yoterday afternoon. Judge Edwards
told the Jury he would not take tho
verdict until this morning.
The Judge ruled that It was not a first
degree case and took fr,om .the con
sideration of tho Jury this charge of
the Indictment. Tho killing was so
sudden, he said, that It was unreason
able to find that there had been delib
eration and premedltntlon.
The theory of the defense, as out
lined by Mr. Taylor," In his opening
address, was that Anna Hewlltt, tho
main witness for tho commonwealth,
was trying to put the crime on Argen
tls to shield the real murderer, prob
ably her lover, who may have come
In, and, finding her with Frederick,
killed him In a fit of Jealous rage.
No testimony, however, was offered
to develop this theory. The defense
contented Itself with nn effort to save
Argentls by proving an alibi, and
showing that Annie Hewlltt's Identifi
cation was Incorrect.
The last and only witness of yester
day for the commonwealth was Daniel
Evans, who was called to corroborate
Alderman Fidler and the police as to
the manner In which Miss Hewlltt
Identified Argentls at the North Scran
ton police station.
FOR THE DEFENSE.
The defendant, his boarding boss,
Raphael Pastorl; the latter's wife,
Marie Pastorl, and five of their
boarders, Joseph Archerrl, John Coerc
tl, Joseph Ferressl, Frank Jamborlnl
and Dominlck Grecko were the wit
nesses on whom the defense relied to
prove the alibi.
They are testified they lived at 908
Jones street; that on Christmas Day
tlioy lemalned at home drinking; that
Argentls went to bed at 10.30 or 11
o'clock that night and did not get up
until after daylight the next morning.
The hoarding boss sought to strength
en the proof that Argentls did not go
out during the night by swearing It
ias his custom to lock all the doors
and remove the keys when he retired,
and that none of tho boarders could
leave the house unless they first woke
him up and got a door key.
Argentls testified In relation to tho
identification at the police station, that
the Hewlltt girl could see him In his
cell for fully half an hour before she
was called upon to pick him out from
a crowd, and nlso that she could see
him when he was being taken from the
cell to be placed among the crowd.
In summing up for the defense, Mr.
Coinegys dwelt at length on this lat
ter evidence, arguing that It was rea
sonable to infer that Annie Hewlltt,
who was a prisoner and desirous of
currying favor with the police, would
endeavor to pick out the man the
police wanted her to pick out, and
that the knowledge she was given that
Argentls was a prisoner led her to se
lect him as the man to be Identified.
THE CLOSING ARGUMENT.
The clear, stralght-forwaid manner
In which Annie Hewlltt positively Iden
tified the defendant, and the fact that
she had no motive, as far as had been
shown. In fixing the crime on Argentls,
were pointed out by Assistant District
Attorney Thomas in his closing ad
dress for the piosecutlon, as being
proof of the defendant's guilt.
In his charge to the Jury, Judge Ed
wards declared that the testimony of
Annie Hewlltt was clear and positive,
and added that, while It might be true
she was a fallen woman, this fact did
not of itself destroy her credibility.
The judge also laid some stress on the
fact that while there was no motive
shown for the crlnie, there was like
wise no motive shown for Annie Hew
lltt wishing to make n murderer out of
The law points presented by the de
fense were nine in number, and each
of them dealt solely with the matter of
tho defendant being entitled to every
benefit arising from reasonable doubt.
They wete all affirmed.
OTHER CRIMINAL CASES.
William Cotton was placed on trial
before Judge Kelly In No. 2, yesterday
morning, charged with stealing $60 nnd
a silver watch from Thomas Kinney, a
rallrond bralceman, while tho latter was

saying he did not remember signing It,
and that he must huve been drunk or

Four bartenders, who witnessed the
drafting and signing of the statement,

DEEDS OF FOUR
THREW THE TOWN OF HUDSON
Burglarized the Store of J. M, Stark,
in Which the Postofflce Is Located,
and Blew Open the Safe Held Up
Rev. Father Spotanskl, Who Was
Returning from a Sick Call, and
Relieved Him of His Money and
Valuables Detectives Are on the
Trail of the Burglars.
The daring deeds of four masked men
threw Hudson, otherwise known as
Mill. Creek, into convulsions of excite
ment yesterday. They burglarised the
store of J. M. Stark, In which wns the
postoftlce, and held up and robbed Rev.
Father Scotanskl. who was returning
from a sick call. The burglars and
highwaymen were bold and daring, and
There were four men In the party, all
masked with' handkerchiefs tied across
their faces. They secured nn cntrnnce
to the grocery store of Mr. Stark by
cutting out the glass of one of tho win
dows in the front of the store. Two
kept guard outside and the other two
entered nnd ransacked the money draw
ers and desks without finding anything.
They then directed their attention to
the large safe, bored holes In It and
with a charge of nitroglycerine blew it
open, shattering the large door and
w recking part of the store.
In the safe were $200 worth of post
age stamps and $75 In money, all ot
w-hlch they took, together with some
papers they thought might be of value.
PRIEST HELD UP.
Rev. Father Spotanskl, pastor of St.
Joseph's Polish Catholic church, who
lives next to the postoftlce, wns out on
a sick call, and returning to his home,
shortly after 2 o'clock in the morning,
Interrupted the burglars In their work.
He had reached the front oC the store
when two of the masked men sprang
upon him nnd, pointing a revolver at
his head, threatened to shoot him If he
uttered a word.
The burglars went through his clothes
and took $fi In money and nil the valu
ables he had on his person. They then
made him sit down on the porch, while
they stood guard over him until their
accomplices in the store should get the
The Driest was forced to sit on the
porch for over a half hour, expecting
every moment to be shot through the
head. He heard the noise of the ex
plosion and the crash of the wrecked
safe In the building and soon after saw
the other two masked men emerge with
HELD A CONFERENCE.
The robbers held a short conference,
apparently debating whether to kill the
priest, but finally three of them walked
away, leaving ono to guard him. After
a time he, too, disappeared, and the
clergyman was at liberty.
Father Spotanskl aroused tho neigh
borhood, and telephoned to Mr. Staik.
A search for the burglars was at once
begun, but was unsuccessful. Mr. Stark
notified the costal authorities and the
United States detectives are at work on
The burglars secured most of their
tools from George Brooks' blacksmith
shop at Miner's Mills, which was broken
into earlier In the night.
