ffoieph Kramer, Mrs. Gibbons, Hob
ert Schumer, Patrick Langan and
Matthew Pafl Arrested for Sell
ing Liquor Without a License All
Given Hearings Before Magistrate
Storrs, and Pined $50 and Costs
Each Schumer Caught Driving
Up With a Wagon Pull of Bottled
For some weeks past two special de
tectives acting under Instructions from
Superintendent of Police Day have been
quietly engaged In securing evidence
against the keepers of spenkcnslcs In
various parts of the city. Last night
the first trap was sprung when five of
them were arrested, given a hearing
and fined nil In the space of an hour.
The places raided are all located In
South Scranton and the raids were
made under the personal supervision of
Superintendent Day, who had Captain
Williams, Lieutenant Zang and a big
squad of patrolmen with him. Two men
wore sent to each place, and the pris
oners were nil brought to the Alder
street station house where Magistrate
Storrs wus In waiting to give them
Mrs. Gibbons, of 2124 .Plttston ave
nue, who runs a bar-room behind nn
innocent looking candy shop, was ur
rcsted as well as Patrick Langan, of
737 Fig street; Joseph Kramer, of 027
Prospect nvenue; Matthew Pfaff, of
1101 Meadow avenue and, Robert Schu
mer of 1001 Blucher avenue.
The two policemen who went to ar
rest Schumer couldn't find him In the
house and as they were standing In the
dark outside he drove up In a wagon.
"Want to get a drink, boys?" he
called out. "Just wait a minute If you
do. I've just been down buying some
bottled beer and other'stuff. I've got it
here on the wagon with inc."
Schumer was so startled when he
learned who the officers were that he
lot go the reins nnd the horse nearly
ran away. Magistrate Storrs conduct
ed hearings in all the cases in the sta
tion house. The two special detectives
testified to having purchased intoxi
cants in all the places at various times.
The magistrate fined each of the pris
oners $30 and $7.00 costs. All paid be
fore midnight. Pfaff protested that he
had a bottler's license but It was point
ed out that this gives him no authority
to sell at retail.
The police announced last night that
more raids will follow at once.
MANY CONTRACTS AWARDED.
Recorder Connell and Director of
Public Works Roche yesterday award

cessful bid was as follows: Pave be
tween street car tracks, $2.45 per square

Wall Strut JUriiw.
Now York,. Juno 2. None of the news
developments since tho stock exchange
closed on Thursday afternoon availed to
induce any activity In the Hading. Nelth'
er tho declaration of pcaco 111 Hollth Af
rica or tho acute singe reached. In the
anthraclto strlko awakened any Interest
In tho stock market cither on tho buying
or selling side. Thoro was some early
demand lor grain carrying railroads, ow
ing to large advanco In tho not earnings
reported for April over thoso of Inst year.
Tho very light movement of grain, es
pecially of corn, owing to last year's
crop failure, and tho promising oullooK
for a full crop this year gave added force
to this Hhowlng. Union Pacific, Burling
ton, Canadian Pacillc, among the grain
carriers, nnd Reading, Lehigh Valley and
Norfolk and Western, among tho eastern
Hues, show Increases In April net earn
ings of from $100,000 to near $300,000. Tho
reports from tho anthracite region re
ceived In Wall street wero reassuring as
to mo success or tno companies in Keep
ing their pumping machinery active, and
inns preventing damage to tno mines ny
flooding, In spite of tho response to the
strlko orders on tho part of tho engineers
of the pump engines. It would be a vio
lent assumption to read any significance
In today's Btock operations as a reflection
of general flnanclnl sentiment. Thoro
were few open air accounts left open. To
tal sales today, 270,000 shares.
Bonds were dull nnd Irregular. Total
sales, par value, $3.1O,".O0O. United States
2'b and old 4's declined H, and the now
4's, 4 per cent, on tho last call.
