CASE OF DANIELS
EVIDENCE AGAINST YOUNG MAN
CHARGER WITH SHOUTING I
"SCAD" at NON-UNION GLASS
CUTTER TAKES FIVE HOURS I
AND ARGUMENTS A HE PUT
OVEH UXTIIj SE1T. UO.
It took Justice Robert A. Smith i
all day Friday to hear the evidenco j
in the case of Frank Daniels, one
of nine men charged with disorderly I
conduct when, on Aug. Av, as al
leged in the complaint, a number
of union glass cutters Jeered a non
union man and made things disa
greeable for him and the two De-
mers, who were walking down Court I
the Herbeck-Demcr shop had ended
for the day.
. The first witness got on the stand
at 10.20. The last one left the
stand at 4.4 D. The county court
room held about 50 or 00 specta
tors and it would have been quite
out of the question to hold the
hearing in the Squire's little of
fice downstairs. At first it was
proposed to do business in the
grand jury room, but, come to think
of it. the grand Jury room isn't
such a whole lot better as to seat
ing capacity than the regular justice
office, so the case was taken up
stairs just so soon as Janitor Ball
could unlock the big room.
Peter H. Hon prosecuted. He .
wanted all nine men tried together
and the whole thing argued in a I
lump to save time. E. C. Mumford i
and Charles A. McCarty, who de-1
fended Daniels and the rest, said
No. Mr. McCarty told the court
emphatically that every man in
Pennsylvania who wants a separate
trial can have one. The prosecu-(
tlon decided to try Frank Daniels1
first and sought to prove he was the
leader of what Mr. Doff, despite
the repeated and vigorous protests
of Mr. McCarty, repeatedly allud
ed to as "the mob."
The first witness was Charles H.
Dorfllnger of White Mills, who said
he happened to be in Honesdale,
at the home of his brother, Louis
J. Dorfllnger of Court street, the
night of the trouble. He Eald he
was on his brother's porch soon af
ter 6, when the crowd went by, and
he noticed Daniels because, as he
explained when Mr. Mumford cross
examined him, Daniels was a big
ger man than the men with him.
He judged there were fully 50 men
following the two Demers and a
man they had with them. He
heard hooting as the party passed
down the street and he also over
heard one man say: "I can take
one of them."
Mr. Dorilingor told Mr. Iloff he
did not know Daniels. The hoot
ing, he said, commenced near the
courthouse, and as the party went
along the noise seemed from where
he stood to increase ratiier man
diminish. He wondered what the
trouble was, for he knew very few
Honesdale workmen. Mrs. Dor
fllnger, who was with him, was ren
dered nervous by the racket, and
she couldn't eat her dinner.
Mr. Mumford asked If Daniels
wasn't on a bicycle. Mr. Dorfllnger
said that If Daniels were on a
wheel that night, then it must be
that Daniels has a double in Hones
dale. Daniels, he remembered,
wore a dark suit.
Mrs. John Kuhbach was called.
She testified that she lived next to
the courthouse and was at home at
C on the night of Aug. 30. She
was sitting on the porch, she said,
reading a paper, when all at once
she heard a commotion and saw
Mr. Deraer and nnother man fol
lowed by a crowd. How many men
there were In that crowd Mrs. Kuh
bach could not state, but she re
membered they were noisy. She
did not call Mayor Kuhbach on the
telephone to tell him about the
trouble, but went on reading the
To Mr. Mumford she said the
racket did not make her sick.
Mrs. W. H. Ham said she lived
on the corner of Court and Ninth
streets and was at home Aug. 30 at
C She was sitting on the porch
when the crowd went by. They
were making nulte a bit of noise.
she said. The language of some of
the men "was not very choice," to
employ the precise words of this
witness. The crowd, part of it on
tho sidewalk, part of it In the
street, disturbed the peace and
nuletude of the neighborhood. Mrs-
Ham said the men going by mako
a good deal of noise every day, but
this noise was an exceptional

said, was very noisy, but sho did
not recognize any of tho men as
they went by. Their talk, this wit
ness told Mr. Iloff, was "not refined
or polite." Tho word "Scab" was
used a number of times. Tho noise
increased as the crowd moved to
ward the bridge.
Mr. Mumford asked tho witness
if she was afraid on account of the
nolso and loud talking. Sho said
sho was not afraid personally, but
she added that it mado her feol bad

APPRECIATIVE MINUTE ON LIFE
AND CHARACTER OF LATE
LAMENTED O. L. HOWLAN1)
SPREAD UPON RECORDS OF
WAYNE COUNTY COURT PRO
FESSIONAL ASSOCIATES HAVE
ONLY WARM WORDS FOR HIM.
In court Monday morning tho
following minute on the life and
character of the late Orvlllo Lafay
ette Rowland was offered by Judge
Henry Wilson, president of the
Wayne County Dar association and
chairman of the Bar's committee on
"The Bar of Wayne county, In ac
cordance with its usual custom, has
assembled today to do honor to the
memory of one of its members who
has been suddenly summoned before
the highest tribunal.
"The occasion of this meeting of
the Bar is impressive because of the
sudden and unexpected demise of
one of our number whoso ago would
lead us to hope for a longer life.
"Orville L. Rowland was born at
Rowlands, in Pike county, Pennsyl
vania, on Nov. 21, 1859, and died
at Honesdale, Wayne county, on the
30th day of Aug., 1910.
"He registered as a law student
with the late Hon. Henry M. Seeley,
and was admitted to the Bar on
Dec. 4, 1882. He soon came into a
good practice; In 1887 was elected
district attorney and served with
distinction for one term.
Unlike most country boys, his
youth was exempt from disciplinary
duties and subject to no exactions
of self-denial; and this early ex
perience somewhat influenced his
later habits of life and gave him,
on all occasions, the appearance of
complete freedom from the worry
and cares of life. He was of a sunny
disposition, free from exciteablllty,
aud composed and stable In Its In
tellectual operations and conclusions.
Ho possessed an analytical mind,
could readily sift tho wheat from
the chaff In legal controversy, and
was well able to present his cases
at trial without laborious prepara
tion or apparent arduous efforts.
"His relations with the court and
members of the Bar were always of
a cordial and gracious character, and
his extreme dislike of interference
with the professional affairs of other
attorneys often took from mm legiti
mate legal business to which no
might justly havo laid claim.
Tho Bar will remember Mr. Row
land as a good lawyer, congenial
friend and loyal citizen, nnd long
after his portrait shall havo faded
In the vista of years will ms spirit,
of professional honor, friendliness
of disposition and good fellowship
keep their Impress In tho mind and
heart of his professional brethren of

Hemurku of Judge Scmio.
In ordering tho minute placed on
tho court records Judgo Senrlo said
"I concur most heartily with tho
resolutions presented by Judge Wil
son and direct that they bo placed
unon tho court records. Those reso
lutions fittingly set forth an npprecia
tlon of tho character of Mr. Row
land In his private life and as an
attorney at this bar.
"Probably no member of this bar
was better acquainted witn t. u.
Rowland than myself. He and I
studied law at tho samo period and
were admitted to practice at tho
Wayne CQuj?"bar In tho Bamo year.
Mr. Rowland had a mind that was
eminently analytical. No member
of this bar could better interpret
tho statutes than Mr. Rowland.
"His disposition and character was
lovely and lovablo and his sudden
taking away makes us realize that
the older members of our bar are
leaving us and It should link tho
older remaining members in a closer
bond of sympathy and friendship.
Wo shall long remember and mourn

GOVERNOR HAD FINE TIME IN
NEWBURGH, Sept. 13. Ex-Governor
Benjamin B. Odell, Jr., was
asked by a representative of the
Newburgh Journal If he would de
fine his position upon the political
situation. Mr. Odell said:
"Prior to my departure for
Europe I informed those who were
entitled to my confidence that it
was my intention to retire absolute
ly from active participation in the
politics of this district. Since my
return this decision has only grown
stronger, and a positive declaration
has been withheld up to the present
at the request of those who thought
that perhaps party harmony might
be restored through compromise,
and that I could be of service in that

continued silence, and therefore the

under no circumstances will I lnter-

"This is all that I care to say, ex

who represent the old as well as the
newer Ideas of Republican policies
may find It consistent to unite and
harmonize and thus restore party
solidity In this district."
