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 w.is 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 . A. M.OJoots moved on Wdai day lntoCoub'a house.
