SHOTS WERE EXCHANGED
. BY THE POLICE AND MOB
Exciting Scenes Near William A. Colliery Seven
Coal and Iron, Police Charged Willi Mur
derAdmitted to Bail.
Old Foige and Duryca wcie the scone
of groat turbulence nnd disorder yes
terday. Early In the nftcrnoon thorp
was a running battle between the coal
and Iron police nnd a mob. Since the
killing of Lulggl Vlnazza, close to the
stockade surrounding tho William A.
colllciy late Monday night the Italians
of thai vicinity have boon giently
wrought up. Shot Iff Scliadt and his
deputies wore on the scene nonrly nil
Tuesday night and with them was F.
Tlscar, the Italian consular agent In
this city who lout himself earnestly to
the task of Inducing his countrymen to
keep the pence. (
Dlstilct Attorney W. R. Lewis and
County Detective W. W. Phillips were
nt Old Forge cuily yesterday morning
and found a goneinl clamor for the
an est of tho deputies who were on
duty when the shot was fired which
killed Vlnazzl. Unless something was
done In the way of making arrests it
seemed ccitutn Unit thcic would be a
match of tho strikers against the
stockade with consequence terrible to
County Detective Phillips came to
this city and went before Alderman
Howe whole- he sworo to information
against II. L Smith, II. C. Bhd, Jnnies
P. Htukc, It. II. Tiur.in, D. J. Davis,
Wllllum Hancock and W. R. Kline,
members of the coal nnd Iron police
guarding tho AVIllIam A. Murder was
the cilnie charged.
PLACED IN SHERIFF'S HANDS,
The wan ants weic placed in the
hands of Sheilff Schadt and ho wai
propailng to go to the scene to serve
them when a telephone message con
vcjed the Information that n battle was
In pt ogress near the collleiy. He
gathoied several of his deputies to
gether and was rushed to the scene of
the dlstuibance on a special train. The
battle was over when he arrived and he
quickly dh.porscd the crowd and pie
vented a fuither outbicak.
About 1 p. m. jesterday, C. A. Blown,
a civil engineer for the Lehigh Valley
Coil company, who is now noting as a
police officer, left the stockade and
started for the end of the Wyoming
Valley sheet car line some distance
away. The big ctowd that has hung
about the vicinity of the colliery for
dn3 past gave chase and Blown drew
his icvolvor nnd filed. The ciowd le
sponded with shots and twelve ofllceis
left the stockade and rushed to the as
sistance ot Brown, who would undoubt
edly have fared badly had he fallen Into
the hands of the mob whose blood had
been stlned by the shooting.
The coal and iron police fired a volley
and then most of the mob turned their
attention fiom Blown to those fl.vlng to
his assistance A number ot shots were
exchanged between the police nnd the
mob but the shots wont wild and no
one wns stiuck
' BROWN ARRESTED.
In the meantime a fraction of the
mdb had chased Blown across the
county line Into Luzerne county where
ho was placed under arrest by Chief of
Police Cosgrove of Duryca on a chaigo
of discharging a tiro arm. He was fol
lowed to the loikup by a great ctowd
and Chief Cosgiove had some difficulty
in keeping the crowd away fiom him.
When Brown was seaiched ho had four
rovolveis on his person and about 200
When the other police offlects snw
Blown In the hands of the authorities
they vvlthdiow to the stockade.
After Sheilff Schadt had dlspeised
the crowd and jestored order he went
to the stockade and solved his war
lants on the men against whom they
weio diiccted. They constitute the
entire foico that was on duty at the
time ot the killing As the sheriff
mniched his men toward tho ruilioad
station a sullen-biowed ciowd lined
the load on cither side. Suddenly one
mnn cried "kill them." The shout was
taken up by others nnd It looked as If
the sheriff would have to fight a battle
to pioteet the men In his charge.
Consular Agent Tlscnr, jumped to
the porch ot Peter Tonnetl's saloon and
In an Impassioned speech In Italian
begged his countiynien to bo calm and
lot the law take Its com. so. The crowd
quieted down and the danger of an
nttaek on the pilsoneis was averted, A
number of tho Italians came to this
city with Mr, Tlscar to lenm what
would bo done with the prlsoneis,
Tho sheriff took his men to Aldeiman
Howe's ofllie where they waived a
homing, by advice of their Attorneys,
Jobeph O'Brien nnd C. P. O'Mulley. F.
O, Chase, general supoilntendont of tho
Lehigh Valley Coal company, nceom
pnlned tho paity to this city and was
piesent at the alderman's office.
After tho pilsoneis had waived n
hearing mid boon formally committed
to jail they weio taken before Judge J.
P. Kelly in chambers. District At
torney Lewis was picsout and said
that It was not a first degree murder
and ho would thorofoio consent to have
the accused admitted to ball. Judge
Kelly asked If $5,000 In each case would
bo satisfactory to the dlstilct attorney
and Mr, Lewis snld it would be. Ball
was accordingly ilxed nt that amount
and foimer Judge E. N. Wlllard quali
fied as tliclt bondsmen.
After tho officers enteted ball, they
weio taken back to the William A, 10I
lleiy on a special train, It was foaicd
ttiejo, would be n demonstration f they
got off at tho station and tho tialu was
run down close to tho initio and the
men got off a short dlstnnco fiom tlin
stockade, They w-eio met by a number
of other police olliieis, when they
alighted from the tintn, and safely es
coited within tho stockade,
BROWN COMMITTED TO JAIL.
Brown was gvcn a hearing beforo
Justice of the Peace Burllngham at
Duryen last night, and in default of
(5,000 ball was committed to Jail to an
swer chnigcs of Inciting riot, thing a
royolver and earning concealed wea
pons. Ho was taken to Wllkes-Barre
lust night, handcuffed to a constable,
and lodged n the Luzerne county jail.
An effott will be made today to hae
him tclenscd on a writ of habeas cor
pus, Sheriff Scliadt went down to Old
Forgo last evening about 6 o'clock nnd
found everything quiet and peaceful
thcie. Ho left several deputies there
for the night and returned to this city.
Coroner Snltry, assisted by Dr. S. P.
Longslrcct and Dr. J. F. McQrath,
mode another effort yesterday to And
the bullet that entered the head of
Vlnazza and kilted him, but met with
Vlnozra and killed him, but mot with
no successs. After spending sevetnl
houis In thoroughly dissecting the head,
they had to acknovviego that they were
unable to And tho much-desired bul
let. This adds another item of mystery to
an extiomcly puzzling case. Vlnazra's
skull was one-third thinner than the
skull of an otdlnnry man, and Drs. S.il
try and Longstrcot agree that If a bul
let had struck Vlnazza' shead after
coming direct from a Winchester rifle,
or even a large revolver nt short range,
the bullet would have gono light
through the head. The ball entered bo
low the right ear and took an upward
course tluough tho head. It had not
force enough to pierce the skull at the
forehead, but slightly cracked the bone
when It struck it and was stopped.
What became of it after that is tho
If Vinnz.a was killed by a bullet
from a Winchster, as his friends be
lieve, the bullet must have struck
something and been deflected, other
wise it would have bored right through
tho head. The fact that tho bullet took
an upward couise would seem to Indi
cate that the shot which killed did not
come front the stockade, as that Is
higher ground, and tho bullet would
have taken n downward, instead of an
HAD NO REVOLVER.
At tho house where Vlnazza boarded,
it Is asset ted that ho did not own a re
volver and did not cany one, and that
the weapon with the empty shells found
on his body did not belong to him.
They also claim that Vlnazza was killed
moia than fifty feet from wheie the
body was found, and point to the
ctosscd legs and general position of the
body when found as enthcly different
ftotn what they would hao been had
ho fallen dead while running away
fiom the men shooting.
District President Nicholls said yes
terday afternoon: "It seems to me
that the coal and Iron police, who aie
causing the disturbances hereabouts,
ate receiving moic protection fiom the
local officials than the people whom
these police ofliceis aie trying to In
cite to ttouble. No one has been safe
about Old Forgo leccntly fiom an at
tack at tho hands of these coal and it on
police officers. AVe have retained coun
sel and will make an effort to see that
this state of affalts does not continue.
Tho killing of Vlnazza was dcllbeiate

town, near Plttston, was informed
Tuesday night shortly befote 11 o'clock
that the deputies at No. 10 colliery

CASING .A WATCH.
How Ordinary Watch Works May Be
Made More Efficient and How
Finer Ones May Be Preserved.
Otdinary watch works may generally
be made effective tlmekeepots by caie
ful and stiong casing. The finest
grades of watch woiks require xeiy
strong casing to pioteet their delicate
mechanism. The best of all cases for
cither class is the Jas. Boss Stiffened
Gold Watch Case.
This Is a gold case stiffened In tho
center with a plate of haid metal to
prevent It getting thin and weak and
bending down on the woiks, as a gold
case does after a few yeais' wear.
Tho outside plate of gold is very
heavy, much moie than is every worn
fiom a solid gold case nnd much moic
than can bo worn off In a thiid of a
eentutVs haid seivico. In fact this
outside plato of gold is a quarter of an
Inch thick when tho process of rolling
down commences. At any l ate, the
Jas, Boss Case is guaranteed 23 yeais,
and none was ever known to wenr out.
Tho styles ot tho Jas. Boss ease are
very elegant tho sumo as tho finest
solid gold cases beautifully hand
carved, supetbly finished very thin or
very massive, ns fancy may dictate
and In all sizes, for men and women's
wear. Tho pi Ice Is much lower than
