TO BONNETTI CASE
Mrs. Heap Has Accuser Arrested on
Charge of Keeping House of Ill
Fame and of Enticing Annie Scud
der Who It Is Claimed Bonnetti
Attempted to Assault Scudder
Girl Admits That the Charges
Against Bonnetti Were for 'the
Puipose of Blackmailing Him.
Tlieie was t sensational seciuel last
night to the case of Mike Eonnottl, who
was nnested Sunday night for an at
tempted assault on Annie Scudder In
the homo of Mrs. James Heap on H.u
rl'on avenue, Highland Paik.
I.at night Mi. Heap was attested
befoie Alderman Jones on the ch.uge of
keeping a bawdv house and of enticing
fiom home foi Immoial put poses An
nie gcudcfei, nonnetti's accuser. Just
befoie the heailngr the sensational se
quel developed when the Scudder felil,
pte.ssed by her Mstei, who had Mis.
Heap ni rested, confessed that the
ch.uges against Bonnetti weie all false
and were lnought for the expiess put
pose of blackmailing him.
It was a tory of a boldly conceived
mid dellbeiately can led out scheme of
blackmail that the Scudder gill told In
the nldei man's office. It was planned
by Mis. Heap, she .said, to cntlap Bon
netti and after compioinising him to
make a .stand for a good sized s.um of
money, $200 unci upw.nds. The vlIioiiw,
however, only paitlallj succeeded, for
the Scudder gill weakened when con
fionted by his sister, whose home Mie
left only two weeks ago to come to
Mis. Heap's, and confessed In detail
her connection with the case. Her stoiy
goes to exculpate Bonnetti of most of
the ehui Res on which he was held by
Aldeiman Atkinson vestoidn.v.
The Scudder gill's tdoiy was that
Iionnettl had visited the house of Mis.
Heap on one ot two oicas-ions pi lor to
Sunday night, when he was entiapped
Mrs. Heap, the gill f-aid, had her go
Into Bonnettl's stoie, last week, and
Induce lilm to call at their house. It
uppeaia that Mis. Heap, who accom
panied her to the s-tote, knew ItonueUI.
Bonnetti came once or twice befoie
Sunday night, Hnih time he had i I it
ptoper lekttlons with her, the gill ad
mitted. Mis. Heap knew of tills, nhe
Mild: In fact ptoposed It.
Iionnettl was ng.iln invited to call, on
Sunday. He eaitie and after he went
up .stalis'wlth the glil.Mrs. Heap locked
I he door and sent vvonl to Constable
Moran. Bonnetti was thieatened with
auest and ptosecutlon if lie failed to
pay over money to fiee himself, Theio
weie piotcsts on his pail, and in the
iiieuntlme Countable Mm an came on
the see no and took tho ncetised man
Iionnettl, the Kill said, did not break
In the house, Tuesday night, nor did he
make a fntclbln entty Sunday night.
He came Tuesday night, on her and
Mis, Heap's Invitation, the door was
opened for him; he remained for some
time, and ho w..is not dtlven off, ns
she and Mis. Heap testified to at tho
healing In Aldeiman Atkinson's olllto
vesteiduy inclining. Neither did Bon
nettl assault her, tho Scudder girl ac
knowledged, Ho did not stilke her In
tho bieast, as she and Mis, Heap testi
fied to at tho healing In tho alderman's
ofllee. Theio was no assault and bat
tel y, no bieaklng In the house; In fine,
none of the chni ges to which they
swoie to at yestei day's healing weie
title, the glil confessed. They weiu
conceived by tho lleup woman, iiud the
gill lent heiself to ruining out the
plans to entrap Bonnetti and bleed lilm.
Another staitllng featuio of the
Scudder gill's confession vus her ex
planation of her motive for euteilug
Into tho scheme. Money, the piomlbe
of It fiom Mrs. Heap, was what led
her to toinptomlse hen-elf and lead
Iionnettl on. If they succeeded In
bleeding their victim for $200, sho was
to lecelve J'-U; but If they could seeuio
only $l!iO, then she was to get tX, tho
balance In either event was to bo Mis.
Heap's shaie, Bonnetti, however,
didn't or couldn't pioduce.
All of whafthe girl told, was lelaled
lit Alderman Jones ofllee last night be
foie Mis. Heap's heating was called.
The gill's sister, who came over fiom
Promptou,- tielr home, yestei duy, and
caused tho nirest of Mis, Heap on tho
charge of enticing her sister (the Scud
der girl) from home for Immoial pin
poses, was deeply giieved wheij she
leurned tho cheumstuuees of tho case.

5cranton's Shopping Center
During the months of July and August Connolly
& Wallace will follow the custom established by
them two years ago, and will close their store at
noon on Saturdays.
ILL YOU share with us the privilege of in
augurating in Scranton shorter hours for
business? During the hot months of July
and August shopping in the morning will,
help very much. Will you bear this in mind? '
Besides, the store service is better then. The .
most willing hands become tired by the end
of the week, the clearest heads grow heavy.
It is, then, not what salespeople would like '
to do do, but what they can do.
If a Saturday half holiday (which is vir
tually a full day, from 12 noon to 9.30 p.
m., our usual business hours on Saturday),
of" rest and recreation will bring our people
back on Monday morning to 'the store fresher
and stronger, we shall be fully repaid for the
day of business we give up each week. ,
We have closed in this manner nowVor
two years, and so far we have heard no crit
icism of the move, plenty cf endorsement.
Our effort to bring about a shorter work- ;
ing week during the hot months for the thous
ands of people employed in stores, must soon
bear fruit. Other stores are beginning to
fall in line and it is only a question of time
before it will be general. It means so li,ttle
to the women who shop. It means so much,
so very much to those who work-.-.
The women of Scranton can do much by
helping the earlier closing movement. It
now depends on them. The merchants are
willing. All you have to do is to stop shop
ping at 12 o'clock noon on Saturday. Is this
a hardship? Would not a little thoughtful
ness in planning your day's work accomplish
it? And is it not worth while?
Think what it means in the way of sim
ple pleasure to the women and men who
serve you and supply your needs in the
thousand and one calls you make on them.
In the simple matter of every-day living,just
consider what this small act of thoughtful
consideration from you means. At home at
noon on Saturday A whole day in which
to freshen themselves, to throw off the cares
.of the day, to prepare in leisure for any little
festivity they may have on hand.
You, who have all your time at your own
disposal, can hardly realize all that this half
holiday means. But try to imagine yourself
in their place, Picture yourself as going
through their' routine for one day. Then you
will know. Cannot we instantly bring about
a general early closing movement by all
stores? What a fine thing it would be if
every store were actually deserted of shop
pers at the magic hour of 12 noon on Satur
days during July and August.
Some customers, conversing in the store a few days ago
on the Saturday half-holiday subject, remarked that "Con
nolly & Wallace lead and the others follow,"
It matters little who leads in the early closing, the big
thing is that a store can close nowadays at noon on Saturday
and lose none of its business.
We are glad that some other stores have decided to close,
because we believe it is the right thing to do that customers
are as much benefitted in the better service they receive from
the salespeople as the salespeople are benefitted in a physi
cal and mental way.
