The editor of the Wilkesbarre

"The worst thing about the Pennsyl
vania National Guard is the official
rej)ort that its uniforms were spoiled
by hard services at Hazelton. What
the officials rcallv meant was that
the girls of the town are wearing all
the brass buttons and the guards
are holding their uniforms together
with safety pins."
We repeat the suggestion made
last week concerning the "Marriage

Behind Prison Bars.
One of Shamokin'a Lawless
Gang behind Prison Bars
Eepecft Judge McQurt to fkntenee
. IFtm ami IIWica IU Would
Come Soon to Do li.
Martin Lawless, of Shamokin,
was put into jail here on Saturday
afternoon on a charge of house break
ing and attempting to rob. The!
warrant was sworn out by Amos
Focht of Chapman township before
Kohler Peck, J. P. It appears that
Lawless and two others broke into
Amos Foeht's residence near Mahon
tongo on Friday night. The family
was aroused , and Amos and his son
Harry came down stairs. Hany
find, but the aim was toohigh. The
load went into a mirror aliove law
less' head. It was a terrible shot
and lioml a large hole through the
wall. Liwless had an axe and at
tempted to down the two Foehts.
One of the Foehts turned his gnu
around and hit lawless across the
forehead with the butt end of the
gun. Lawless dropcd to the Moor
unconscious and remained uncon
scious until noon on tStaurduv. The
other two escaetl.
Thk Prison kr
was brought here on Saturday after
noon. He is 2D years of age and is
at home in a jail or a penitentiary.
He has a father, mother and several
brotlicrs residing in Shamokin. John
lawless is the father's name and is
an old man severely crippled with
rheumatisn. Only one ot John Ijiiw
less' sous works regularly. He is
employed in the coal mines. The
whole family hasalmd reputation and
doubtless some of Martin Lawless'
brothers were the others who com
posed the party, but lawless says
he was the only one. Patrick law
less, says our informant, at Hmiuo
kiu, is a bad case too.
On Monday, a Pos'rRcportcrcall-
cd at the jail and found .Martin
IjiiwIcss taking it easy in his cell.
His head was tied up with bandages
ami occasionally he but hod it with
water. He told the reporter that
he had been arrested aliout two years
ago for robbing a wealthy man by
the name ot Dietrick in Sliamokiii.
J here were six ot them, hut he
the only one caught. They secured
$28 which was used for a spree.
He was sentenced to 1 year and 0
months in the Sunbury jail and was
released from there only a short time
ago. He has been in the jail several
times siucc, but only tor drunks,
At Oliamokin una ounuurv, he is
said to have the right name, and
we are iu formed from Shamokin that
the bigger the sentence he gets from
Judge McClure, the better the people
over there will be satisfied,
Lawlws asked the rcjxirtcr when"
the court would convene. Uiwn
being informed that his case could
not come up for trial before June,
he asked, "Couldn't I get before the
Judge sooner and get my sentence?"
"Then you expect a sentence?" was
asked. , "Yes, I can't get out of
that," replied Lawless.
The Reason.
Considerable guessing is being
done to arrive at the motive that in
spired Lawless and his gang to enter
Foeht's house The opinion in the
neighborhood prevails that as Harry
Focht is reformings the bandits fear
ed doubtless that Hurry, may have
had a secret ot theirs and to prevent
him from revealing ky they de
termined to seal hia lip forever by
ending his life. This may not be
true, but it is the prevailing theory
ra the neigh bofhood.. If, however,
Hany had net aimed quite so high,
Lawless' .body, would have been sev
ered in twain and would now be
lying hetaath the aod. . ,i .
