Mrs. Kate Soffel has largely disappear
ed, and the public has realized that her
mistaken and misdirected zeal in behalf
of the Biddle boys entitles her to no
consideration, and but little leniency at
the bar of justice." So spoke John C.
Haymaker. District Attorney for Alle
gheny county, at Denver, Saturday.
"The first thing I do when 1 get back
home will be to try Mrs. Soffel. I shall
try her on the charge of aiding prisoners
to"escape, because the penalty for that
crime is greater than for the others. I
shall convict her, of course. There is
no escape for her, and I shall send her
to the workhouse for two years The
other charges I will cause to be dismiss
ed. Dornian turned State's evidence.
He will be convicted of murder in the
first degree. I shall have him sentenced
to be hanged, and then I will intercede
with the Governor and secure for him a
I commutation, a life sentence, perhaps.
Within the last 10 years, or since the
death of Father Henrici, the Harmony
Society of Economy has been often
prominently in the public eye Just
now it is occupying a place of greater
prominence than ever before, for its af
fairs are in the hands of the United
States supreme court. A decision will
soon be rendered by that highest tri
bunal which will either continue the
society as a strong, rifh unity, or lead
to its dissolution. The power of Senior
Trustee Dnss is trembling iu the bal
ance. The suit on which this decision
is to be rendered is that of Schwartz
against the Harmony society, John S.
Duss and others. Schwartz and his as
sociate plaintiffs pray for the appoint
ment of a receiver for the society and a
distribution of its assets among the
present members and Schwartz and
others who went out of the society
some years ago.

burg, Monday, in a manner not expect
ed. Christ R. Weller was an applicant
for a license for his place out the
Perrysville road, and it was there that
the Biddies and Mrs. Soffel stopped on
the night of January 30, after the escape
of the morning before Weller was
very closely questioned by both Judge
Frazer and Rodgers about the visit. He
told of how Edward Biddle purchased
six sandwiches, and was a little sur
prised when asked about the bottle of
whisky which was sold after hours. He
explained the sale by saying be did not
think it any harm in view of the long
journey before the visitor. Weller
claimed not to have kndwn.of the visit
of John Biddle and Mrs. Soffel until the
following morning, when, he said, his
wife told him.

The Car Works.
At the site of t'ie car works, Sunday.a
thousand Butler people watched the big
plow scoop up the earth and dnmp it in
to wagons, which hauled it to the lower
ground below. The raised level npon
which stood the horse stables is l>eing
graded and the ground ueed to fill up
the floor of the main building which
| will be 3 or 4 feet above the natural or
; former level.
| Tuesday s rain made the soil too wet
| to use the big plow, and yesterday a
' hundred mule teams were doing the
work with ordinary plows and scoops.
One little, yellow mule died, and he
j was laid iu a low place and covered up.
' The site yeas covered with iron beams,
j brick, cement, etc , and about half the
! brick piers for the posts of the main
building were up-.
Every day manv carloads of structnr- 1
;al material for the big works of tne |
Standard Steel Car Company at Butler |

over the Pittsburg & Lake Erie to Ran- I
j kin and thence oyer the Bessemer &
| Lake Erie to Butler. There is about j
! 0,000 tons of this material Nearly half
r is now delivered.
■ The construction of the Standard's
plant at Butler will prove a great pro
! ducer of revenue to the Bessemer, with
j which road the new company will have
j close traffic arrangements. Cars lea\ ing
i the plant vs il! be seat over the Bessemer
j in either direction to connect with lines
: leading to all points Few empty new

the coroner was notified.
Shull's home was iu this county and
he had been in the hospital tor about a
year. Friday afternoon about 3 o'clock
he slipped away from his attendant ou
the plea of getting a drink of water and
went into the institution. He got out

grounds About 15 minutes later his
absence was discovered ami a number

John Strauss of Albion Pa . formerly
of Butler and Ed Stone of Greenville, '
were hurt by an accident on the Bull 1
Creek trestle, last Thursday and were
taken to.the hospital.
Strauss' spine was injured and at first j
he was supposed to be dangerously in- !
jured, but he is doing nicely and will
get well. Stone had an anklo broken,
and will be laid up for some time ,
The accident was caused by the i
engine leaving the track just as it
moved upon the trestle. It tore up th"
ties, the heavy ore cars that followed
hit the girders and two went down witL
several cars of ore following them.
The engine remained ou the trestle and
the rear cars were saved by the rear
brakeman. The engineer saved him
self by jumping from the tender. Stone
jumped from the gangway and the fall
of about twenty feet broke his ankle;
Strauss was front brakeman and also
jumped, but his back struck something
that hurt it It was said that it would
take two weeks to repair the trestle and
in the meantime the Bessie people are
hauling some ore over the P. & W.

When I Say That
The Davis Sewing Machine leads all
others, it is not merely to fill a column
with an advertisement. I mean that no
other machine is so simple' I mean
that no other machine is so finely made!
And that no other machine is so easily
run! The "Davis" is polished like a
watch; it will not kill a woman to run
it; it will do more than double the
variety of work, without basting, than
any other machine can do. All other
sewing-machine men acknowledge this,
but snys, "Onr's is the cheapest." But
I say that to buy a cheap sewing ma
chine is not economy. The best is al
ways the cheapest. I also sell Behr
Bros' Matchless Pianos. For further

Some Reasons.
Charles W. Armour, head of the
Armour interests in Kansas City, said
that he knew absolutely nothing of the
existence of a combine or trust among
the meat packers "If there exists such
a combine," were his words, "I know
nothing about it, and if wnat is claimed
is true it is very strange that I have not
heard of it lam going to give a few
reasons why meat prices are high The
dry weather iu Kansas, Oklahoma,
Northern Texas. Nebraska and parts of
Missouri, Kansas and lowa last summer
has had the effect of cutting down the
r ceipts of live stock in the five great
markets of the world to an astounding
degree. The decrease in receipts in the
five big markets mentioned are. not in
cluding the last day of the present
month, as follows, against those of
April, 1901: Hogs. 225,000.; cattle, 44,500
sheep, 154,000.
"Coal during the last few years has
advanced from 25 to :J0 per cent in price #
Pig iron, which a few years ago cost us
1> cents a pound, now cists us 28 cents,
taking yesterday's closing market for it
Salt has doubled iu value. The lumber
which we use to make our boxes has ad
vanced on average of $7 per 1,000 feet.
Everything else has advanced more or
less, while the price of labor is either
about the same or a little higher."
