"There must be some amusement in
the cry of tho free trader that tin

or ho wouldn't keep it up. Day lu
and day out, like the Bowery Parrot's
cry of 'The Tarifl's a Tax,' the free
trader shouts, 'You can't make
American tin.' And he must enjoy
It, or he wouldn't keep It up. There
are tin plate factories In Missouri, Ohio

what Is more they give employment
In tho new Industry to a large number

charge of burglary and sentenced to
four years In the ponitontlary, but es
caped through a legal technicality, has
just beon Indicted for burglary, this
tlmo by tho graud jury of Lackawanna
County, and will be tried at tho noxt
term ot court.
Ilolllster Is 70 yoars old and belongs
to ono of tbo most prominent families In
Wayne Couuty. Lieutenant-Governor
W atrcs Is a nephow of his, and he has
for 80 years been conspicuous In the af
fairs of his section ot tbo county. Dur
ing tho war thoro woro many mall and
express robberies and masked burglar
ies in that locality, and it was openly
charged that bqulro Hollister was the
organizer aud lender of a gang that
committed those crimes.
In 18G7 a burglary committed In tho
village of Waymart, ten mllos from IIol
listervlllo, wns traced homo to blm, and
ho was arrested and convicted. Tho
caso was carried to the Supreme Court,
where tho Judgment of tho Wayne
county court was reversed.
In 187U Squire Ilolllster, his brothor-
ln-law, Georgo Burns, who hadroturued
to lioiusiurviuo, v. iL. diuyurs, ami a
young girl named Faunlo Vuu Gordor,
woro arrestod charged with conspiracy,
arson, burglary and attomptod murder.
Tho chargos against these parties woro
made by Theodore II. Baker, i mer
chant ot Ilollistorvlllo. Squire Ilollls
ter owed Baker $3,000, for which tho
lattor hold a, mortgage on tho former's
property. Holllstor InHlsted on paying
It, and tho day tho monoy was paid Ba
ker sent It to a Scrnnton bank. Thac
night a lire broko out In u barn near
Bakor's, and Uakor ran to it, leaving
his wife aud child at homo. While ha
was gone a maskod man entered the
houso, and olded by Faunio Vun Gorder,
boat Mrs. Uakor into unconsclousnos3
and took tbo wallet which had contained
tho $3,000 paid that day to Bakor. Mrs.
Baker said that alio had recognlzod tho
masked robbur as Georgo Burns.
Baker, following allegod clues, was
satisfied that Squiro Ilolllster had con
spired with Burns, Will Meyor, Fanny
Van Gordor, who was Moyor's sweot
hoart, to flro tbo barn, i The four prison
ers were tried at Ilonesdalo, and to the
amazement ot every ono Miss Van
Gorder aud her lover woro convicted,
and Ilolllster and his brothor-ln-law,
Burns, were acquitted.
A fow weeks ago a daring burglary
was committed In Dunuioro, a suburb
of Scrnnton. Ofllcers wore put to work
on tha caso, and tho clews they found
led them to Ilollistorvlllo, nud fluully to
tho arrest of Squire Holllstor, bis
brother Henchel, Charles Engel, nnd
William Snow. Besides bolng a Justice
of the Peace aud tho political boss of
his township, Squire Holllstor is a witty
