Chase Near Steene Band Has
Been Terrorizing Communities I
in This Part of Slate for I
Sometime. '
G. W. Marsh of this place was
robbed In a very clover manner by
n gypsy woman Saturday morning. ,
The wliole gypsy gang wero later I
overtaken by County Detective N. U.I
Spencer. E. W. Gammell and G. W.
Marsh near Steene and the money
which amounted to three dollars!
was recovered, and after paying the!
costs, were released. Mr. Marsh,
with a companion, was walking aloug
the road toward Honesdalo when
near the gate of the fair grounds
they came across the gypsy tribe. An
old' woman approached him and
wanted to tell his fortune. Ho said
he told her she could. She desired
to hae the hand brossed with silver
before she could pronounce the mag
ic words. 'Ho took out his pocket
book and when she saw a roll of bills
sho wanted to count it. He let her
take the money thinking that ho was
close enough to detect any crooked
ness on her part. She handed the
money back to him and ho did not
miss the money until some distance
f lorn them. He then discovered ho
was short $3 in bills. He notified
X U. Spencer and had a warrant
sworn out for her arrest, and ac
companied by Ex'1'. Gammell they
overtook tho lioifh near Steene
The gypsies made m '(position and
handed out the money at once and
also paid the costs promptly. They im
mediately departed for a more proilt
nble locality. They have been en
gaged in horse trading with farmers
and had about nineteen good looking
horses In their train. The gypsies
came bro'iah Honesdale from the
Fouth Friday and camped near the
fair gro inds. On Saturday morning
they made a raid on the town, the
women telling fortunes and relieving
tho people of their money in many
ways. Many persons were touched for
tmiall sums by the usual method of
crossing the palm with silver. The
part- consisted of a few sleight of
hand performers and one man told a
Citizen representative that he never
saw anything like it, that the money
just disappeared before his very
eyes. This band of nomadic tellers
have been terrorizing this part of the
state for some time and is undoubt
edly the same gang that has been
operating in Stroudsburg and Bangor
and who relieved an employe of a
meat store at tho Delaware Water
Gap of $14. Tho tribe was over
hauled here and the money returned
with an additional line of six dol
lars. If any other thefts were com
mitted they have not been reported.
In several of the stores they were
thrown out in the street by tno pro
prietors. "Every year these bands of
wanderers come along and terrorize
the community, but we hope that
Honesdalo has seen the last of this
A gypsy maiden held a Strouds
burg man's palm In one hand the
other day and told his fortune while
eho picked a roll of bills from his
pocket with the other. The next
Stroudsburger who learns his fate
from the lips of the unwashed beauty
of the gypsy caravan will doubtless
insist that she use both hands in ex
plaining the mysteries of the palm.

Having been safely guided through

Greater Honesdale Being Agitated
New .Members Elected Bills
Amounting to SIM) Paid All
Committees Active.
A very interesting and enthusias
tic meeting of the Greater Honesdale
Board of Trade was hold in the
town hall on Friday evening. In the
absence of President P. W. Kreitner,
Attorney F. P. Kimble was elected to
the chair.
The minutes of tho May session
were read and approved, which was
followed by reports of standing com
mittees. Mail and Transportation, C. A. Mc
Carty, chairman. Burgess McCarty
reported that his committee had a
session with Supt. C. A. Burr and C.
E. Bates of the D. & II. R. R., a few
weeks ago and that If the freight
demanded It they wero willing and
ready to make better freight facili
ties, but they thought present sched
ule was as good as could be, in that
connections are made now. Chair
man McCarty stated that the Erie's
summer change of timetable, effec
tive June 15, would give Honesdale
better train service and that he
would call a meeting of his commit
tee the first of the week concerning
mail facilities on same.
There were no reports forthcom
ing on their standing committees.
Special committees were then ask
ed for by the chair.
C. A. McCarty, chairman on
fiftwter- 'Honesdale, reported as -follows:
The Committee of Greater Hones
dale, desires to report:
That the agitation for annexation
by Texas township or that portion of
Texas township most thickly inhab
ited, has taken on new energy since
the Gurney Electric Elevator Works
have been permanently established
and their large plant Within tho bor
ough limits made a certainty. While
ono year ago, citizens of Texas town
ship were luke warm or Indifferent to
the annexation Idea; there is a gen
eral and wide spread tendency
among tho citizens in Texas town
ship to become annexed to Hones
dale. They realize the greater ad
vantages which tho borough has
over the township in schools, lights
and many other ways, and a compari
son of the cost is small considering
tho advantages recoived in the bor
ough over the township.
The committee Is aware that now
is a good timo to put forth an extra
efTort to bring in at least all of tho
thickly-settled portion of Texas
township adjacent to tho borough,
and thus glvo tho borough itself a
standing which It never can receive
while confined within Its present
In addition to the above the
ohalrman of this committee stated
that thero Is a different feeling In
Texas township in regard to annexa
tion of that township to tho borough
of Honesdale.. fit Is tho thought of
the most progressive that annexation
would bo better for everybody now
living in Texas township, remarked
Mr. McCarty. Instead taking In sec
tions of Texas by piece-meal, if It
wero admitted as a whole It would be
more satisfactory, claimed tho chair
man of tho committee. On motion
the report was accepted and ordered
to bo placed on tile.
The expense bill of L. Rlumenthal
and R. J. Murray, special committee
on the Gurney Electric Elevator
Company, amounting to $112.40,
was presented and ordered paid.
W. W. Wood's bill for expense to
Allentown and .Philadelphia in the
Interest of tho Globe Yarn Company,
125.85, was also ordered paid.
Other bills amounting to $22.10
for advertising Erie timetable, etc.,
wero ordorcd paid.
Two new names were presented
for membership.
'A committee was appointed to
wait upon Ilonesdale's old 'Board of
Trade to ascertain whether or not
tho present Board of Trado could
not secure tho money of tho old
Hoard that is lying idlo in the bank.

Has Honesdalo Such a .Man, or
Woman, Who Can be Guilty of
Such an Unlawful Practice?
The dog poisoner Is again active and
In the samo old location. Citizens
with respect for law nnd order as
well as the authorities have been
outraged by tho frequent cases that
have been reported lately. Tho last
case reported was on Saturday when
a dog owned by a resident of West
street was poisoned by strychnine.
Tho perpetrators of these unhuman
deeds ought to bo hunted out and
made to pay tho full penalty of tho
law. Tho Prevention or Cruelty to
Animals Society of Honesdale havo
done great work along that line and
we hope their work will be extended
along tho lines of preventing this
atrocious slnughter of dumb animals.
It is undeniably true that In most
cases the animal has been a nuisance
and for that reason has been put out
of the way, but that fact, however,
docs not excuso any person taking
upon himself the duties of the law.
If the animal has been a nuisance
or in any way offensive it is his duty
to report the case to the proper au
thorities. It is Inconceivable how a
person in his right senses, who other
wise apparently is a model citizen,
can bring himself down so low,
morally, as to deliberately plan and
execute the murder of a dumb ani
mal. Does the act bring him Joy?
Does he gloat over tho victory as a
savage would over the destruction of
a human being? Tho act can only
bring him a feeling of repugnance,
unless ho has a cast-iron conscience
and has no regard for the laws of
nature or of the better promptings
of his inner self. Suspicion points
toward the guilty person. Are these
conditions to continue? If so, It will
not bo safe for any person to keep a
high pedigreed dog, without being
continually handicapped by the
thought that it will be the next to
meet its fate.
This practice is ono of the most
atrocious and cowardly conceivable
to the mind, as well as being a pun
ishable offense.. It is a wanton de
struction of personal property with
out regard to law and order and
should not go unpunished.
State Has Tills Amount In Reserve
for Honesdale Paving Will Prob
ably Begin This Fall Board of
Trade Instigators of Move
ment. We have been authentically in
formed that there Is $8,000 in re
servo for Honesdale and will be used
in assisting the town in paving Main
street. Tho -money Is in tho State
treasury and will bo expended by tho
State Highway department as a por
tion of its share In giving Honesdale
a better road. Tho $8,000 Is avail
able any time the town council de
sire It.
Tho paving of Main street with
brick will, in all probability, be com
menced this fall and tho balance fin
ished next summer. Before tho work
of paving can begin tho road bed
necessarily must bo cut down twelve
Inches to get tho proper foundation.
Tho pave can bo no higher than the
present grade. The pave will be a
mile In length, extending from
Homer Greene's residence to the
Gurney Electric Elevator lino on
South Main street.
The paving question is only an
other of the many things that the
Greater 'Honesdalo 'Board of Trade
has been the Instigators of. The
matter of paving Main street with
brick was fathered by tho Board of
Trade. A petition recommending a
pavo from the State bridge south to
Fourth street was presented tho
council, who In turn appointed a
committee to go to Harrlsburg to as
certain whether or not State aid
could bo secured. Tho announce
ment made by the council that pav
ing will probably begin this fall, Is
Indeed gratifying nows.

Allah- Verdict, Not Guilty
Plalnllir to Pay
Three-fourths of
Tho case that has been exciting
borough-w Ide Interest, that of Attor
ney Peter H. Iloff against Clarence
E. Bond, both residents of Texas
township, the chargo being assault
and battery, was brought to trial
early Monday afternoon, Judge A. T.
Searlc, presiding. Both parties In
the action arc neighbors on Fair
Avenue and the caso is the outcome
of a quarrel of several months' stand
ing between the two families.
Searle & Salmon represented the de
fense whilo tho prosecution was vig
orously pushed by District Attorney
M. E. Simons. After a short delay
the following Jurors wero chosen:
Wesley Decker, Hawley; Daniel
Gray, Canaan; Stanley II. Hines,
Preston; Wallace Cramer, Waymart;
John T. Bradley, Damascus; O. W.
Treverton, Berlin; N. O. Walker,
Clinton; Charles Keller, Lebanon;
Clarence Gardner, Scott; J. C.
Wittlg, South Canaan; 'Wm. Cole,
Texas; H. L. Hartford, Sterling.
The commonwealth opened tho
prosecution with a short sketch to
the jury of what was to bo proved
by them In the case. Peter H. Iloff
was tho first witness called. Ho
stated that he was the prosocutor in
the case and that he lived in Texas
township and when asked about the
occurrence on April 1C he stated
that about twelvo o'clock ho drove
home and began unhitching his
horse, his father-in-law, John Hallet,
assisting, when Bond came up to tho
side of tho road where they were,
with his shirt sleeves rolled up, mak
ing considerable noise and using
abusive language. Mr. Hallet pro
ceeded to unhitch tho horse and took
it to tho barn. While this was going
on Bond began pushing the wagon
into the road and Iloff states that he
pushed Bond out of the shafts and
pulled the wagon out of tho road.
It is alleged that Bond then grabbed
him and Iloff fell .backwards, strik
ing his head and shoulders on the
walk, while Bond proceeded to
pound him. Accorlng to lloff's tes
timony ho received a cut over tho
left eye and one under the right eye
lash, both cuts being about an inch
long and very deep, causing the
blood to flow profusely so he could
hardly see. Ho was helped to tho
house by his wife. He stated that
his house was the second house on
the road toward the river and he
had to pass the house to get to his
barn. On the other side of his barn
was the school houso and on tho
same side of tho road.
On being cross-examined he said
that It was customary for him to
leave his wagon on tho side of tho
road but dented that tho wagon was
on the walk. Ho stated that the
road was dry and In good condition
on that day. Ho denlod having
struck Bond first or of having been
Intoxicated at the time but confessed
to having taken a drink during tho
day. When asked what his average
dally drink amounted to he said ho
couldn't say exactly.
Mrs. P. H. Iloff was sworn. She
corroborated most of her husband's
testimony and stated that ho was
perfectly sober on that day. Sho
stated further that Dr. Powell was
called to attend her husband and
that he was confined to the house for
about four weeks and to his bed
three or four days. When asked to
tell of tho conversation that took
place the night before the fight, be
tween her father and Mr. Bond, she
testified that in torms not generally
heard in polite society, Bond told her
father not to touch tho wagon but
to call out Iloff that he wanted to
kill him, or to that effect. On be
ing cross-examined sho stated that
they never had any trouble or dis
pute over the wagon being on tho
sldo walk before.
John Hallet sworn. His testi
mony only corroborated that previ
ously given as to tho fight, condi
tion of tho road and tho conversa
tion of tho previous night relative to
Iloff. Ho stated that ho made his
home with his daughter, who Is
Mrs. P. H. Iloff. On being pressed
in cross-examination ho said ho
wouldn't say whothor Iloff was or
wasn't under tho influence of liquor
that day.
David Stevens sworn: He stated
that he was a pupil In the school
next to lloff's barn and witnessed
tho beginning of the fight.
Dr. Powell was sworn: Ho stated
his visit to Iloff April 16, about Ave
o'clock to dress the wounds. He
stated the nature of tho wounds over
tho loft eye and on tho right oyelld,
to be only skin wounds and not seri
ous. Tho cross-examination brought
out nothing deflnlto furthor than tho
testimony already given. Ho said ho
could not state whother Iloff had or
had not been drinking. Ho stated
that Iloff was delirious part of the
tlmo but could not say whether tho
effect of a blow on a man who has
been drinking continually for five
years would bo dlfforent than on a
man of normal habits. Ho stated
further that ho had ad vised Iloff
not to drink liquor.
Allen Bodlo sworn. Ho testified
to having heard Bond discuss tho af
fair in tho Hotel Wayno a few days
after tho occurrence In which Bond
stated that ho hrtd given Iloff a
good trimming. Wlnnlo Klmblo tes
tified to having heard Bond make
somo remarks about tho fight.
P. H. Iloff wa? agali. called and
discussed tho location of tho walks
