libel in divorce, alleging indignities

A very remarkable 810,000 damage
suit was'filed at Yonngstown Monday
by R. T. Hooper, an artist, who alleges
that his delicate touch and steady nerve
have been greatly impaired by an
electrical apparatus installed in his
rooms by the Brenner Jewelry com
pany, over whose place of bnsiness he
has his studio. Hooper alleges the
electrical device was installed purely to
annoy him and has already greatly im
paired his touch. Persons not familiar
with the particular kind of nerve and
touch possessed usually by artists would
believe that Hooper' are working in a
fairly satisfactory manner, to judge by
the filing of the suit.
On Friday last James Gallagher,
Wilbert Kaup and Roy Bracken, three
good looking and well dressed young
fellows, whose aged range from IS to 22
years, plfcad guilty to two charges of
robbery made against them for assault
ing and robbing two Slavs on the night
ot April 21. The defendants told how
they had gone to Lyndora to get liquor
because Bracken, the youngest and
largest, could not get liquor over the
bars in Butler, how they were return
ing through the Car Works field near
Fairground Ave., Bracken walking in
front, and the others about a rod be
hind, when they met their two victims,
knocked them down and took their
money The Slavs appear to have been
knocked down by Gallagher and Kanp
first, and then Bracken came running
back and knocked one of them down
again. From one $75 was taken and
from the other sls and a watch and
chain Gallagher and Kanp claimed,
when examined, that Bracken, who had
confessed to the police after arrest, had
taken the pocket book with the $75 in
it and divided the spoils with them: but
Bracken claimed Gallagher had gotten
the pocketbook. Bracken admitted that
ne had knocked one of the men down
and had received $25 of the money.
Gallagher had been before the Court
twice belore, one of his offences being
the taking of a dress off a dummy in
tront of Troutman's store and parading
it around, for which he served several
months in the workhouse. He had no
| attorney in Court. Kaup had an attor
ney and his mother and aunt were
there. Bracken's mother, Mrs. F. E.
Bracken, his uncle and his attorney
were there. Judge Galbreath, in pass
ing sentence, told Gallagher he did not
believe his story and gave him three
years in the penitentiary and a fine of
$500; Kaup got 18 months in the pen.
and a tine of SSOO. Both sentences were
on the charge of stealing the $75, sen
tence on the other charge being sus
pended. Then the Court told Bracken
that he was not satisfied as to the truth
of his story, knew him and his friends,
was sorry he was marking out the life
for himself that he seemed to be, and
stated that he wanted to make further
inquiry before sentencing him, there

That new locks are needed in our jail
was again demonstrated last Tuesday
night, when another prisoner.a foreigner
in iail on charges of assault and burg
laTy, quietly unlocked everything and
walked out.
Duplicates of all the keys of the jail
!tnd jail building seem to be in exist

all he has to do is bide his time, and
then walk ont. This man selected show
night for going; and after he had been
I )cked up for the night. unlocked him
self through the Sheriff's apartments,in
to the street, taking his keys with him,
excepting one that stuck in the lock.
The matter was kept quiet, but no
trace of him has been discovered.

Doings of Council,
At the meeting of Council, Tuesday
evening, the borough Auditor's report
ivas received and held over for discus
sion, as the auditors suT-charge several
streets with the amounts received from
the street car company for the paving
uetween the tracks and which amounts
:he auditors say should go into the
borough treasury. It cost about
£50.000 to run the town last year and
will cost several thonsaud more this
year. The millage for this year was
tixed at 8 mills.
Ordinances for the paving of [the fol
lowing streets were adopted and bids
Cor the improvements will be received
at the next meeting:

A petition for the paving of East Jef
ferson St. between Monroe St. and the
East line of the J. W. McKeelot, which
is at a point near the quarry, was re
ceived and an ordinance was ordered
Mr. McGeary asked if council had
not the authority to pwe the square
between North McKean and North
Main Sts. on East Penn. This petition
Joes not cover this part of the street
which will leave a big gap between two
important thorotares.
The chair suggested council had the
power, but he believed it would be*
better to wait until the street had been
[>ave<l up to McKean and then council
would be in a better position to go
ihead and pave the gap.
The small section of street at the foot
jf West Cunningham street which runs
ilong the creek and which seems to be
without a name, will be paved this
itimmer. It was supposed the street
was a part of Race street, but when
that street tvas paved it was fouud it
did not run to Cunningham and hence
;he gap.
