AGAIN ON TRIAL
it Will probably take over

Plaintiff Is Suing to Recover $0,000
Insuranco from Two Companies.
The Case Was Tried Last Spring
but a Now Trial Was Later Grant
ed Allegation of, Incendiarism
Matte Before Will Probably Bo
Renewed George W. Zcigler De
clared Not Guilty,
The re-tiiul of tlio case of I'. M.
Thornton, of AVIIkos-Harre, against tho
Security Insurance company, of New
Haven, Conn,, und the National Assur
ance company, of Ireland, was begun
yesterday morning In the United Slates
district court, and will probably con
tinue all next week: and perhaps long
er. In view of the probable great
length of the trial Judge Arehbald de
cided to continue nil other cases and
discharged the remaining petit Jurors
Thornton la a lawyer, practicing In
AVIlkes-nnrre, and bo Is suing to re
cover $0,000 from the two Insurance
companies for dnmage done his house
hold effects and books, which ho had
Insured with both of tho defendant
companies. On the day his insurance
took effect he moved bis things from
AVIlkes-Uttrru to it bouse In Kingston,
which he bad rented. Tills latter place
was burned on that night and his
property was almost totally destroyed.
The companies refused to pay tho
amount of the claims made by Thorn
ton, and he brought suit to recover.
The case was tried last spring in this
city before Judge Arehbald, and the
defense put tip was that tbe fire was
of Incendiary origin. The jury refused
to believe this and awarded the plain
tiff a verdict In the sum of $3,S00. A
motion for a new trial was made on
the ground that the defendant should
have separated the damaged and un
damaged personal property as required
by the terms of tbe policy. Judge'
Arehbald heard arguments and decided
to grant a new trial.
The plaintiff is represented by At
torney John JlcGahren, ofAVilkes
Barre, and former Judge E. N. AVI1
lnril, of this city, while Attorney John
T. I.eiiahan, of AVIlkes-Bnrre, and At
torney M. J. Martin, of this city, ap
pear for the defendant companies.
Thornton on the Stand.
Mr. Thornton was the lirst witness
called niter a jury bad been secured.
He spent upwards of an hour anil a
half In reading from an Inventory i
list of the books and household :effects
which were destroyed by lire, together
with the value of each. lie hnd a most
extensive library, the total valuation
of the books contained In it being fixed
by him at nearly $1,000.
lie described In detail tbe events
leading up to the lire, explaining that
after his Roods had been moved he
went back to bis old house to remain
over night. He said ho knew nothing
whatever of tho lire until aroused by u
newspaper reporter and told that tho
dwelling In Kingston bad been burned.
He detailed at length the efforts which
he made to have bis claims settlo;! by
the insurance companies. He said that
the property recovered from the burned
house was taken In charge by the
WIlkos-Barre representative of tho in
surance companies and stored away.
He later obtained possession of It, but
found that it was unlit for use. He
at one time offered to settle his claim
for $3,000 It he would have been assured
his money within sixty days.
Attorney l.enalian began tho cross
examination and It was still under way
when court adjourned until this morn
ing. When asked to explain how bo
came to have such a carefully prepared
list of all the books destroyed by the
lire he said that he desired to be able
to tell In a moment it be had any par
ticular book which he might desire to
consult without rummaging through
tho shelves and that he desired to keep
an accurate record of their cost..
A transcript of certain questions
asked him and the answers he made
In Attorney Lenuhau's office was of
fered in evidence. Each page was
signed by Thornton, but he denied yes
terday having made certain of the an
swers recorded as having been made
by him. These were ir reference to
the Inventory of tho books and personal
property. He said that Attorney Houli
han had given him only an hour to
look over the transcribed copy and
that he had no time to examine it

Many more mines started up yester

The Delaware, Lackawonnitund AVest
ern company has nil of Its pluccs In
operation except the Hallstcad, which
is flooded, and tho Sloan and Central,
at which repairs arc being made. Fully
ninety per cent, of the old employes will
befback at work today.
At tho Continental colliery the men
refused to bo lowered by a non-union
cnglneec, alleging that bo was Incom
petent, atlno Inspector Prythcrch, who
happened to be present, coincided with
tho views of the men, and the old en
gineer, John Cuslck, was sent for and
given charge of tho engines.
All of tho Delaware and Hudson col
lieries except tho Greenwood No. 1 and
No. 2, Spring Brook, Langcllffe, Laflln,
Laurel Run, Baltimore slope, Plymouth
No. 2 nnd No. 3 and Boston are In oper
ation. Tho Greenwood No. 1, Spring
Brook, LaHIn, Langcllffe and Plymouth
No. 2 will start today. Tho others will
bo idle for a few days longer on account
The Other Companies.
The Temple company has alt of Its
collieries except the Northwest in oper
ation, with eighty per cent, of its full
working force. Tho Northwest will like
ly start In the course of two weeks.
Tho Ontario and AA'estern company
got tho Pine Brook under way yester
day. This leaves the Richmond No. 3
the only idle colliery ot this company.
The men at this mine refuse to be low
ered by the non-union engineers, alleg
ing they are incompetent. The company
refuses to reinstate the old engineers.
The continuation of tho strike at this
place Is, at nil events, not very import
ant, us far as it bears on the produc
tion of coal. A fire is raging there and
the lower workings have been Hooded in
un effort to extinguish it.
The Erie company made large. addi
tions to its working forces at the places
ready for resumption. Ail the com
panies had similar reports to make.
Fully eighty per cent, ot the men are
now back at work, nnd Inside of a week
practically all of them will be re-employed.
The Lackawanna region Is now al
most wholly free of the "import." The
discontinuance of the commissary de
partments at the different mines and
washerles is responsible for this. The
imports could not get boarding houses
in the mining settlements, and their
only recourse was to pack up and get
Trains Won't Stop.
A large number of Imports employed
at mines and washerles up and Sown
the valley have been boarding in Scran
ton. They went and came to and from
their work on Delaware and Hudson
trains. The trains were stopped at tho
collierles to take them on or let them
off, and they were saved the danger
ous journey to and from the railroad
station. Today the Delaware and Hud
son company will cease stopping trains
at collieries. Any import who intends
to continue nt work will havo to take
chances such us, for instance, might bo
encountered in an early morning walk
from tho Olyphant station to Grassy
The companies are not dismissing any
non-union men, but the most careful
inquiry falls to disclose a single in
stance of strenuous effort on the part
of any company to force an import to
remain In the company's employ.
The only non-union men remaining
hereabouts are those who deserted the
union. For the most part these are en
gineers and steam men.
The absence of physical conflicts be
tween the returning strikers and non
union men Is accounted for by the fact
that, with the exception of engiueers
and steam men, the non-union man Is a
minus quantity. Generally speaking,
the miner has not been denied his
chamber because it had been given to
a non-union mnn, who was bent on re
taining It. As fast as roads can bo
opened up, miners nnd their laborers
aro being put to work ut their old
places. Some strikers are not to bo
allowed to return to work. AVho these
are, will not be disclosed until the
mines aro running l'lill-hmided.
Twelfth to Leave.
The fact that the Import has quit the
coal regions made possible tho order of
Governor Stone directing that the sol
diers be recalled as fast "as conditions
would permit." Tho Twelfth regiment,
stationed at North Scranton, will break
camp today. The Eighth und Thir
teenth may be recalled at any time,
