always been carried out, and was
violated by tho Bradford county
delegates when C. C. Jadwln, of
Wnyno county, was entitled to a

Mr. Pratt will have any opposition,
unless ono of tho Bradford county
herd jumps tho fence and goes on

tried to trip him up as ho crossed
tho bridge. Had they succeeded,
witness was of the opinion that he
would have been trampled to death.
Ho also triumphantly emerged from
a severe cross-examination.
Jacob Demor, Jr., next took the
stand and gave practically tho same
testimony, but added that several
of tho mob wore armed with clubs
and that he and his father and
brothers were roughly Jostled and
could barely keep their feet. Ho
also swore that Charles Faatz had
tbld him ho would gladly knock his
Fred Demer gavo similar testi
mony, following which tho counsel
for tho plaintiff made a motion that
the defendants bo held for court,
as a prima facie case had been es
tablished. This motion was oppos
ed by the defense, they contending
that the Act of 1871 which provides
a snmninry conviction, supersedes
the Act of 1SG0 covering tho offen
ses alleged In this case. This con
tention was sustained by tho court
nnd a ruling mnde that the trial
should proceed, the defence to call
witnesses, if they so desired.
Tho prosecution then called to
the stand a man named Dunkleburg,
who conducts a meat market at the
upper end of Main street. This wit
ness testified to seeing the crowd
but stated that so far as noise was
concerned the gathering was not out
of tho ordinary.
.Innoli Denier. Sr.. then cave a
vlvld description of the marching
crowd and tho part he played in
tho demonstration and his being as
saulted near tho Hotel Wayne. At
this juncture the prosecution rested.
Olaf Highouse, one of the de
fendants, was then called to the
stand and entered a sweeping denial
of any particular in tho offences
charged. During the cross-examination
of this witness he admitted
that as a member of the union he
had taken an oath not to do anything
to injure another union man.
Roy Williams, the next witness
denied being in the mob, but said
lie had followed it up the street. He
said he had been pushed against
the elder Demer by the latter's son,
thus cnuslng him to fall. He ex
plained that he took hold of the
arm of another of the Demers, as
previously testified to, because he
had heard he (Demer) was a bad
mnn and because he wanted to call
his attention to a man standing by
who had a propensity for rifling
pockets of their contents. The wit
ness also testified that he saw no
shoving or pushing being done by
the crowd, and that no one had ut
tered a curse or a loud word.
John Reed admitted that he had
done picket duty, but denied that he
hud taken any part in the demon
stration. Only "walked around to
see what the bunch was going to
do." He gravely testified that
his principal business near the works
on the night in question was to
"bat stones into the river" and had
no idea who was in tho crowd or
how many there were.
Lawrence Bauer next testified that
although ho saw the crowd he heard
nothing unusual and observed noth
ing that had been referred to in the
Jacob Storr, the next witness,
when interrogated ns to his presence
In tho ranks of the crowd naively
stated that his sole object in being
there was to "escort" the fellows
homo, although he admitted that
such was not his usual custom.
Jacob Lelppo also testified that
he had not ordered the crowd to
"fall In and get tho " as pre
viously testified. He stated that
thero was no particular noise, no
cursing or threats on tho evening in
Charles Fnatz also said that thero
was no disorder or rioting on the
evening of the 13th, and that the
noise then was no greater than
when tho Elks mado their recent
visitation. Ho denied having pull
ed oft his coat or making threats.
Ho said Henry Demer had threaten
ed to "lick" a man, and ho had pre
pared to provent It.
John Goodline donled striking
Frank Demer in tho back. Ho said
thero was no riot, no swearing, no
threats, no assaults, no shoving, no
nothing. On account of his defec'

to the Constitution and the schedule
1. That general elections shall be

3. That tho Judges of tho courts
of tho several Judicial districts arc
to bo elected only nt the municipal

tho approval of tho amendments'
November 2, 1909 whose terms will

hold their offices until tho first
Monday of January, 1912.
Alonzo T. Searle held the office
of Jndgo for tho 22nd Judicial Dis
trict on November 2, luoy, the date:
when the amendments were adopted
by the peoplo at the general elec
tion held on thnt day, and I am of
opinion that, by virtue of the last
clause of the scheduler he will con
tinue to hold that office until the
first Monday of January, 1912, and
his successor will be elected at the
municipal election held in Novem
ber, 1911. This opinion will extend
to all other judges of judicial dis
tricts whose terms will expire In
I am also of opinion that the
schedule has the effect of continu
ing such judges in office without any
other or further commission, but,
inasmuch as tho absence of a com
mission might be made the basis of
objection to the right of such judges
to exercise the judicial function dur
ing the extended year. I am furth
er of opinion that a commission
should be issued to them, to expire
on the first Monday of January,
1912, and that the records of your
office should be examined, the
names of such judges ascertained
and commissions issued to them ac
In answer to your second inquiry
1 am of opinion that no judge can
be elected at the general election
held in November, 1910, and that
this applies as well to judges who
hold their office by election as to
those appointed by the Governor.
