Slko Lord still lingers nt his home
in Equlnunk, but the flve-lnch gash
that extends from the back of the
liend to the Jaw Is almost absolutely
certain to prove fatal, though Dr.
F. C. Frlsble, the village physician,
who has been on the case from the
outset, and Dr. J. F. Woolsey, the
Hancock doctor called In by Dr.
Frlsble to help him trepan the skull,
lo not give up hope.
The flve-lnch gash Is the one Wil
liam Lord claims was made by the
pick In the hands of Leona Lord
about the time Sam Reed was hack
ing Slke Lord's head with a hoe.
District Attorney M. E. Simons
said today he understood Lord might
live several days, but that he hard
ly expected the old man to get up.
He has told Coroner Searles to be In
readiness to go up to Equlnunk at
any time to hold an Inquest. The
district attorney and Sheriff Braman
have thus far found it necessary to
make only one trip to Equlnunk.
That was last Friday and Saturday.
The arrest of Leona Lord and her
son, Millard Lord, took place Sat
urday. Allen Lloyd, a neighbor of all the
parties at Equlnunk, was In Hones
dale today. He went to the office of
his counsel, O. L. Rowland, with
whom, he said, he had some busi
ness that didn't pertain to the Lord
rase. Hi- .spoke of the big gash
the alleged pick hole In the head
of Sike, and that Wednesday
Sike seemed to be a trifle stronger.
Reed in his cell at the jail Is In,
fairly good spirits. He sees his law
yer, W. H. Lee, and nobody else. His
health is good, but he naturally
worries over the outcome of his case.

Cni'bondule Pokes Fun at Nick.
Says the Carbondale Leader:
The baseball contest In Honesdale
on Saturday, which will be tho first
of a series ofgames, promises to vie
in point of Interest with the series
which were played between the old
association team and the Maple City
The Honesdale papers feel Ban
gulne that their representative team
will have a walk-over and they give
tho credit of victories for the local
team to professional players who
were secured from out-of-town. If
they still have an umpire like "Nick"
Spencer, more professionals will bo
needed thlB year. "Nick" certainly
was a favorite among the Maplo
City enthusiasts and that's all.
The day that he displayed his silk
supporters at a game on Duffy's
field he even shocked the delegation
of visitors from his own town.

With Him In Car-Breaking Job
at Hawley Go
Work- By Waytfe County and
Erie Detectives.
Working together without the
clash and friction that sometimes
spoils results when county officers
and railroad specials set out to clean
up bothersome gangs, County De
tective Nick Spencer and Erie
Detective Frank Kelly, the six
feet seven crook chaser known
on the Delaware division as
"Long" Kelly, have gotten about all
the men implicated in the car-breaking
and beer-stealing at Hawley July
1. The seal was broken and eight
cases and one barrel of beer appro
priated by a gang of six or seven,
not all local talent, the county de
tective and the Erie officer believed,
and next day Capt. Glass, chief of
the Erie's force of gumshoe men,
had Kelly take a run over from Port
Jervls to Hawley to see what could be
done to And the culprits. Lieut.
Ralph of the Erie, whose headquar
ters are at Dunmore, asked Spencer
to come in on the deal, and all last
week the Wayne county officer and
"Long" Kelly, a conspicuous man In
Hawley and everywhere else where
he works up cases, were around the
yards and up and down the tracks,
trying to land the bunch
Last week John Hendry, aged 17,
a son of William Hendry of Marble
Hill, was arrested by Spencer and
Guy Ralph and brought before Jus
tice Ammerman, charged with Illegal
train riding and with having broken
a window In the West Hawley depot
April 10. Hendry plead guilty to tho
charges and was lined 5 and costs,
the latter amounting to about $5.
That was the beginning.
Tho first man to bo pulled on sus
picion of actually having had some
thing to do with the Hawley car-
cracking was Joe Kelly, a young lad
woll known In the village. He was
brought before Justice Ammerman
and held in ?200 for trial. Ho got
Chauncey Tyler, whom Spencer
and "Long" Kelly believed all along
to he the kingpin of the whole Job,
was lauded Wednesday at Mastbope,
Kelly had been following Tyler, who
is a fairly good-appearing young fel
low of 27, and Wednesday night ho
telephoned to Spencer, who was
caught at the Commercial hotel In
"Come down and get him," said
"Long" Kelly. "I think ho'll squeal
on the rest of the crowd."
Tyler did. Locked in a cell after
suppor, which the Erie man brought
hlra at 7 o'clock, the prisoner lost
his nerve and agreed to tell who
was in tho job. Spencer, who had
driven down from Honesdale as soon
as he got the Kelly call to como and
arrest Tyler, questioned him sharply
and Kelly had already pumped Tyler
and had gotten from htm a story
that didn't differ one iota from tho
To Jail-Clever
story Kelly heard Tyler give Spen
cer. "Better let her all out, my boy,"
said the big Erie man, who Is a
fatherly sort of a personage and has
a pretty fair sort of a heart inside
of him, despite his rough looks and
rough job. "It'll do you good to
tell It."
Tyler gave tho names of the live
that were with him on the Frlduy
night before the Fourth, but he
stuck to it that he didn't break tho
seal to get the cases and the barrel
out of the car. He told Spencer and
Kelly who did do it.
"I was there," he'admitted, "but I
didn't break the seal."
He was told that one of the sus
pects had accused him of being the
man who opened the car In tho first
place, but Tyler stuck stoutly to that
part of his denial.
I believe the boy's telling the
truth about It," said "Long" Kelly.
"There's somebody trying to make
this lad the goat and put the whole
job on him."
Tyler Is of slight build. He won't
weigh more thau 135 or 140. He
lives just over the Paupack, which
divides Wayne county from Pike,
his home being closo by No. 9
bridge. He Is a wood burner and
works at odd Jobs about Hawley and
White Mills. Ho has occasionally
had employment as a laborer in
Honesdale, but he says he has no
folks in tho borough and he does not
know that he is any relation to tho
Tylers of Tyler Hill.
Spencer and Kelly finished their
quizzing of tho prisoner at 11.30
Wednesday night and Spencer drove
back to Honesdale. He went down
to Hawley on tho 7.20 this morning
to getHhe men Tyler's confession Im
plicated and to attend the hearing
of Tyler, whom Justice Ammermnn
nt a hearing Wednesday night had
committed until this morning.
William Riley, ono of tho men
named by Tyler in his confession,
was arrested and brought before
Justice Ammerman this morning at 9
o'clock. He plead not guilty and
was held under 200 bonds. He
got them during tho forenoon and
whs liberated.
Ollle Wright, for whom they had
to go to Tusten, was brought to
Honesdale on tho 1.50 train, hand
cuffed to Detective Spencer and
Chauncey Tyler. Tho pair wero tak

and got $25 worth of revolvers' and

to seven or eight revolvers, a dozen
