THE SEW3 OF THE COUXTI COURTS
In Judge Stowe'i branch of the Criminal
Court yesterday Sister "XL Julienne, a
teacher in the parochial school at West
Tarentum, was tried for assault and battery
on the 6-vear-old son of EdVard Dohmen,
the prosecutor. The Terdict was not
Euilty, and the defendant was directed to
pay one-half the costs and the prosecutor
the other halC Deputy District Attorney
Goehring conducted the prosecution and
i". A. Ammon the defense.
The testimony of the prosecution was to
the effect that the boy had been whipped
bv the teacher and was found lying on the
pavement in front of the school unable to
walk, and was taken home. He had marks
on his head from blows. The boy was too
young to testify
Sister Julienne testified to the boy mis
behavinc and disobeying her continually.
On the day in question he had been Tery
bad and she detained him after school. He
was bad and she slapped him.
The Boy lSecamo Hysterical.
He then became nervous and almost crew
black in the lace. She became alarmed and
finally soothed him and then put him opt
side to go home. She did not see him
aaio. Other witnesses testified to the
child having no marks.
Judge Stowe in bis charge said that a
teacher stands in the same position as a
parent when the child in under her and has
the same right to punish under proper re
strictions. He remarked that when he
went to school the use of the switch was
common, but nature provided a place on
which to use the switch and he did not ap
prove of striking children on the head.
John Coslett, a well-known ex-fireman
and ex-policeinan,is on trial for felonious as
sault It is charged that on November 16,
during the trouble between the strikers and
workmen at the Elba Iron Works, Coslett
assaulted William May, the watchman at
the mill, and fired a revolver at him. The
information against him was made by T. B.
Everson, manager of the mill. Charges of
carrying concealed weapons and larceny
are also pending against Coslett.

Superintendent Hill, of the TTorbhonse,
Abked to Explain by Judge Stowe A
Conflict With the Court Testing the
Blfht to Keject
A contest between the Court and the
authorities at the workhouse was precipi
tated yesterday. On Wednesday Mrs.Mary
A. Derry, of Millvale, for illegal liquor
selling, was fined 5500 and sent three
months to the workhouse. The sentence
was! imposed by Judge Stowe. Yesterday
morning, as is the custom, a deputy sheriff
took the prisoners intended for the work
house to that institution, and with them
was Mrs. Derry.
Upon arriving at the workhouse, Mr.
Hill, the superintendent, refused to admit
Mrs. Derry to the prison because she was
about to become a mother. The deputy bad
to bring his prisoner back to the city and
she was returned to jaiL Sheriff McCleary
then saw Superintendent Hill but the latter
repeated, it is alleged, that he would not
receive her under any circumstances.
Sheriff McCleary then reported the mat
ter to Judge Stowe and an order was made
requiring Mr. Hill to appear and show
cause why he should not receive the pris
oner in compliance with the sentence of the
Court The answer is to be made at 3
o'clock this afternoon.
Heietofore the workhouse anthorities
have frequently declined to receive prison
ers committed bv magistrates in summary
conviction cases, but by what authority is
not know n. This, however, is the first" in
stance where there has been a refusal to re
ceive a prisoner sentenced by the Court.
The woman is still in jail.
AEKIEG 70E HIS STOCK.
Suit Against the Pleasant Valley Hallway
Company for S35,000.
James M. Bailey yesterday entered suit
against the Federal Street and Pleasant
Talley Eailway Company for 525,000. The
amount claimed is for stock and dividends
in the defendant company claimed to be
owned by the plaintiff and withheld from
him. He alleges that in 1874 he purchased
Irom J. T. Stockdale 58 shares of capital
stock in the defendant company, receiving
at the same time a stock certificate from J.
T. Stockdale, as Secretary and Treasurer of
the company. At that time the capi
tal stock was divided into 2,000
thares at ?25 per share. In 1875
a stock dividend was declared by which he
became the owner of 12 additional shares" of
the par value of 825 each. In April, 1889,
the capital stock was increased lrom $100 -000
to 51,000,000, by which increase the
stockholders of that date became the holders
of ten shares at t25 each for each share of
stock then held by the n. This gives the
plaintiff700 shares. This he now claims
with the dividends that have been declared.
The defendant company, he states, through
President Henry has been notified of his
claim and the existence of the certificate,
but the company refuses to acknowledge
Bailey as the owner of the stock in ques
tion. Executions Issued Yesterday.
