The Durkin Murder.
ARREST OF THE BUPPOSED MURDERER
It became noised about yesterday that a
telegram had bqen received, stating that a
man, arrested as the supposed roniderer of
Dr. Durkin, was aboard the express train
from New York on the D., L., 6c W. R. R.
due here at 4P. M. The news created
considerable excitement. The train was
an hour and a half late, in consequence of
an accident to the locomotive, but this on
ly increased tbe excitement. Mr. Lorenzo
Zeidler was in charge of the prisoner, and
before they could cross the street they
were surrounded by a crowd so eager and
boisterous that St almost seamed as if tbe
prisoner's safety might be endangered.—
No attack was made on htm, however.—
The officers started up Lackawanna avenue
with him, with the idea of putting liirn in
tbe city lockup, but it was finally thought
better to take him to the Wilkes- Barre
jail, and he was accordingly taken to a
room in Zeidler's building, and detained
until tbe 7:10 P. M. train, when Lorenzo
Zeidler took him to Wilkes-Barre.
The prisoner's name is understood to be
James Delamatcr, though he sometimes
calls himself Robinson and sometimes
Dougherty. He was arrested at White
Hall, N. V. where be has been since
June 11th. He is supposed to be the
same man who was heard of soon after tbe
murder at various points on the Penna.
Coal Company's R 11. and the Delaware
and Hudson canal, and who was at that
time unsuccessfully pursued by officers
frow this city. It is said that the brake
man on the Lackawanna & Bloomsburg
RR. can identify htm as tbe man who came
up from Wilkes-Barre with I)r. Durkin
on the night of the murder—May 14th.
Mr. John Zeidler also recognizes him as
the companion of the Doctor when the lat
ter called for bis key at 10 o clock on tbe
night of the I4tb.
The prisoner's wife—whom he left early
in June for another woman—says he told
her that he killed tbe Doctor and got from
him SBOO. It was through his wife that
Delametcr was discovered to bo in White
On the other hand, the prisoner stoutly
asserts that he was never in Scraoton be
fore, and that be can account for every
boar of bis time from tbe 22d of April to
the day of his arrest. He says that he
commenced work in the mines of A. Pardee
& Co., near liazleton, April 22, and work
ed there steadily without losing a day, un
til the 3d of June. He gives the name of
the "boss" in the mine, and asks to have
him called and examined. Of course, if
credible witnesses from Hazleton corrobor
ate this, it will establish an alibi and clear
the prisoner He says lie went from Ha- 1
zleton to Berwick and Wilkes-Barre, and j
thence to New York, and from there to a |
small town in Ulste>* county, where he met
a girl with whom he lived illicitly, for a
few days, and then started for Whitehall,
where he arrived June 11th, and where
he has remained evei since. The prisoner ,
is about 80 years old, and by no means a
vicious look fellow, lie cannot read or
write, but is ready of speech, and shows no
signs of nervousness or fear. He seived
in the New York Militia aud 120,h New
York Volunteers, during the war.— / Scra- \

The $325,000 Additional State Tax.
The Radical officers at llarrisburg, have
made a bold effort to replenish the Treas
ury, and oue, as we think, by no means jus
tifiable by any law or usage.
A year or two ago, the Radical Legisla
ture repealed the State tax on real estate, j
and left the tax on personal property,
about SBOO,OOO stand. The Geary organ
at llarrisburg frankly admits that the tax
on personal property may not be necessa- i
ry, and certainly it is not, but because the
Legislature last winter, wisely or unwisely,
neglected to pass the bill proposed by the
State Treasurer, to apportion that amount I
among the several counties of the Com
monwealth, therefore these officers gravely
undertake to increase the valuation on
personal property to such an extent over
and above the valuation of the township
assessors as to raise $625,000! Now,
what reason was there for this arbitrary j
addition of $-325,000 to the State tax.
For the last year or two there has been
on an average nearly three millions in the
Treasury of the State, and when we re
member the rich drippings that fall from
so large an amount, which cannot be less
than $60,000 per annum in addition to le
gal salaries, we can hardly wonder that i
there should be some zeal on the part of
the officers to collect taxes.
Perhaps also when these Radical officers
found that the State sustained an annual i
loss of over $300,000 by reason of borrow
ing $23,000,000 at six per cent., exempt
from taxation, to pay off a tax loan of a
similar amount, at five per cent., tbey con
cluded to resort to this mode of proceeding
to make it up.
Whatever may be the reason given for
this gross outrage upon the tax-payers, it
cannot relieve the Radicals from the
charge of having repealed the State tax on
real estate only with a view to deceive and '
humbug the people.
Had the Democratic party remained in
power, the State tax on real and personal
property, would have been repeated years
ago, and the State debt reduced $5,000,000
below what it is.— Columbian.

Messrg. THOS. ALLCOCC A Co —Please send, with
dispatch, twelve dozen Allcocd's Porous Plasters
Our daily experience confirms their very superior
excellence. At tbis momc nt of writing a man ap
plies for one, who, by, entanglement in the shfat of
machinery, had both his legs broken, spine severely
injured, and was for nearly a year entirely helpless.
This man found relief very soon by the application
of a plastei to his spine, lie was soon enabled to
work, and now he labors as well as ever. He would
cheerfully pay 85 for a single Plaster if tbey could
not be had at a lower rate; lam surprised that
surgeons do not make use of the perforated plasters
to the exclusions of all othe s, as their flexibility and
and adhesiveness are greatly in advance of all other
plasters with which lam acquainted ; while the
perforations peculiar to them rendered them greatly
superior to ail others for ordinary surgical uses -
Knowing the plasteis to be so useful, I have no
scruplos that my sentiments should be known.
