by the evidence that there was any pre

the accused to rob Fancher. They hap

him, they held him up for n drink or
two, and half-urged and half-forced
him along to the nearest saloon they
might Mud open. In the meantime,
Fancber's shouts' drew the police nnd
upset the men's calculations.
The alderman, while impressed with
the belief that 'theie was no intent to

Intercepting Fancher on the highway.
Tills of itself constituted a misde

Delaware & Hudson Company Trying
to Break Up Michevious Practice.
Brakeman Struck Under the Eye
by Missile.
Tho Dolawaie & Hudson company,
through Its detective, Martin Crlppcn
Is endeavoring, with earnestness and
vigor, to effectually stop a mlschevious
and dangerous practice of lads along
tne Honesdale branch, who stone pas
sing trains, choosing passenger as well
as freight as their targets.
As the llrst step In this direction,
Detective Crlppcn yesterday, had n
quurtette of boys, the oldest ten years,
arraigned before Alderman Jones.
The specllle charge was a serious one.
as a stone hurled by one of tho boys,
struck Brakeman John J. Murray, of
Honesdale, under !he eye, almost per
manently affecting his sight. The
stone was hurled at the freight train
on Wednesday afternoon, while it was
rounding the curve at the Carbondale
Metal Working company's plant. Mur
ray saw tlie stone Hying, but could not
dodge the missile. It weighed about
six 'ounces and struck with greater
force because of the speed of the train.'
There was no way of identifying the
guilty lad, nnd It was only through
Constable Neary's shrewdness that the
boys who were arraigned could be
taken in.
Even after an examination, no ab
solutely sure evidence was adduced.
Arthur Glbbs, of Park street, one of
the three arraigned, was tho only one
held. Ho was detained on the evidence
of n companion, Fred Tuttle, who
swore positively that Glbbs threw the
stone. Glbbs himself swore as positive
ly that he was at the ball game at
the hour of the stone-throwing, and
he was corroborated by Ernest Barnes
nnd Edward Lord, who said they were
with him at the ball game. Tuttle's
story, however, wus given credence ns
against the others, nnd Glbbs was held
in ball for his appearance at court.
Detective Crippen made quite a
statement at the hearing in which he
stated that the company was determin
ed to break up the practice, thereby
protecting the lives of the br.ikemen as
well as its passengers. It was a duty
the company owed the public, which it
would not shirk. Passenger trains as
well as freight have been stoned. The
boys aim at striking the car wheels,
and other portions of the train. Fre
quently of late stones have crashed
through passenger coach windows,
causing passengers to narrowly escape
being struck. A short time ago, a
timid woman passenger sustained a
severe nervous shock by a stone com
ing through the window, showering
the glass on her.
Last Wednesday, Mr. Crippen stated,
three trains were reported as stoned by
boys. Tho danger In the case of the
Brakemen Murray was in the possibil
ity of the stone striking with such force
as to stun, causing tho brakeman to
fall from the box cars and under the

It Caused Private Draper a Great
Deal of Misery How a Friend
'.Come to His Aid.
One of the Best Numbers.
The Tribune, yesterday inadvertently
omitted one of the best numbers at the
commencement exercises of St. Rose
academy on Thursday evening, tho
vocal duet by Miss May Moflltt and
Willie C. Price. It was air. Price's first
public appearance as a vocalist, and
his sweet singing was keenly enjoyed
and received with hearty annlause.
Miss Moflltt whoso voice in solo work
Is regarded as a part of the Important
recitals of the city, was characteristic
ally splendid. Miss Moflltt and Mr.
Price had to respond to a hearty encore.
Dr. James Clune's Departure.
As was announced in The Tribune a
few weeks ago, Dr. James Clune, son of
Mr. and Mrs. John Clune, of this city,
has accepted n highly remunerative
offer to practice dentistry, in South
Africa, and will leave In a few days
with Charles Henley, of Lynn, Mass.,
for Pretoria, South Africa. Dr. Clune,
who has just been graduated from the
University of Pennsylvania, hopes to
recuperate his health while awav.
Many well wishes go with him for his
safely and success.
Charles J. Draper, of South Shafts
bury, Vt who served In Company D,
Fourth Pennsylvania regiment during
the Spnnlsh-Amcrlcan war, brought
home with him a relic which caused
.him a great deal of misery. He tried to
riu nimsoir of It but was unable to do
so until a friend came to his aid with
what proved to be a valuable sugges
tion, Mr. Draper tells of It as follows:
"During tho encampment In Georgia
I became very 111, probably from Im
pure water, poor food and the climate.
After eating even tho lightest food I
would bloat to a great extent. My bow
els were In a very serious condition and
my heart, was so weak that a few min
utes' walk would exhaust me. could
only Just drag myself around and some
times I would have to stay In bed for a
few days. 1 was treated In Georgia and
In Porto Itlco by our company surgeon
und later by the doctor at home. They
both told me It would be months before
I could expect to see any Improvement.
"I had been in tills state of misery
for about four months when a friend
recommended Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
for Palo People. He had been benellted
by them nnd thought they might help
me. I began taking them nnd felt re
lieved In three days. I took them for
two months and they made me well
and strong. I keep tho pills by mo all
the time though I have had no need of
medicine for a long while."
Stomach trouble and nervous debility
always yield readily to the potent In
fluence of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People. These pills nre a positive
specific for nil diseases arising from
poor blood or weakened nerves. They
cure locomotor ataxia, partial paraly

Younger of Smnll-pox Patients Suf
fered Collapse Last Night The
End Is a Matter of Few Hours.
Another Son's Suspicious Symp
toms. Thomas Thompson, the younger of
the two smallpox patients, is sinking
fast. Late last night the- end appeared
to be not many hours off.
Early In the evening tho youth suf
fered a collapse. His heait, weakened
under the toxio elfect of the disease,
became so feeble In its murmurs that
the pulse was hardly discernible. The
physician and the nurse, under his di
rection, administered powerful heart
stlmulents, to which there was a sur
prising response. About midnight the
lad rallied surprisingly,, though he re
mained In a semi-conscious condition.
The reaction was probably due to the
heart stimulants, and another collapse
Is likely to follow soon. At any rate
the Indications point to the sufferer sur
viving but a short time; the end seems
certain to como before another da v.
During the past few days young
Thompson has been In terrible dlstiess

was stricken. He Is about in ycurs old
and more frail than his elder brother

Tim other son Is now being caiefully
watched by the physician, as he has de
veloped symptoms within twenty-four
houis that are suspicious. He was vac
cinated some days ago, and while his
symptoms may be the effect of this, his
sufferings are watched with some ap
prehension as they are akin to those
of approaching smallpox.
