CASIO AOAINST PBT13K DIUUK
The llrst case called In the main court
room before Judge Edwards was the
commonwealth against Peter- Drier,
charged by Jlrs. Catherine Miller with
having outraged her 12-year-old daugh-
LITTLE MARGARET KLINE.
ter, Margaret Kline. The crime is al
leged to have occurred July 12 last.
Both parties live In the same house on
Cedar avenue. Drier lives In the up
per portion of the house and the little
girl's folks on the ground floor. On t,he
day In question it Is alleged that both
families with the exception of Drier,
his 9-year-old daughter and the Kline
girl, were away from home. Drier
called the Kline girl to his apartments
and sent her for beer. When she re
turned he Induced her to go to his
room on the promise of giving her 10
cents and kept her locked In there for
half an hour. A few days later she
told her mother what had happened
and she sumoned Drs. Longstreet and
Kolb to attend the child.
After the girl and her mother had told
their story the two doctors took the
stand and testified that the worst In
dignity the girl had suffered of any at
all was an assault.
Drier took the stand during the af
ternoon and gave his version of the af
fair. He said hu was kept to his bed
that day by sore feet. The two chil
dren, the Kline girl and his own daugh
ter, who were playing about the house
ran Into his room. They were making
so much noise that he could nut sleep
and somewhat angrily drove them out.
That Is all he did, he claims. His lit
tle daughter was put on the stand and
corroborated him In every particular.
LIVE IN THE SAME HOUSE.
Mrs. Stein, who lives In the same
tenement with the Driers and Millers,
testllled thnt Mrs. Miller told her she
was going to have Drier arrested be
cause his wife talked "sassy" to her.
She also said that Mr. Miller admitted
to her that her daughter was incorrig
ible and she could do nothing with her.
On another occasion Mrs. Miller said
to her that she would have Drier taken
before an alderman anyhow as It
wouldn't cost anything. Other wit
nesses were called to show further
that the prosecutrix was actuated by
spite and a number; were called to tes
tify to Drier's good character.
Judge Gunster Instructed the Jury
that It could not find Drier guilty of
outraging the girl and at the most
could only return him for assault and
battery. He remarked during his
charge that It was very easy to bring
a charge of this kind against any man
and that no. matter how good his char
acter might be and though he might
be perfectly Innocent he might huve
a dlfllcult time disproving tho churge.
He virtually advised the jury to ac
quit Drier. The verdict will be ren
dered this morning.
The most Intereutlng case of the day
was that of William Allspaugh against
Timothy McNultv, tried before Judge
Edwards In court room No. 2. The al
legation of the idulntlff was that Mc
Nulty, with one. John Campbell, who
has skipped his bail, broke Into the
defendant's barn April 25, 1895, and
stole sixty valuable pigeons, the most
of them carriers of great value. All
tho parties live on- the West Side.
When Allspaugh fhlssed his pigeons ho
Immediately began a search, .and the
very next day discovered nine of them
In the possession of Sim Davis, the
well known wing shot. Davis told that
he bought them from Campbell and
McNulty. Allspaugh forthwith got out
warrants for their arrest, but the ac
cused got wind of their impending ar
rest and skipped out.
THEY RETURNED RECENTLY.
They returned a few months ago,
thinking the affair had blown over,
but time hnd not assuaged Allspaugh's
grief at the loss of his pets, nor soft
ened his resentment towards the de
spoilers of his pigeon loft. They were
taken Into custody, but managed to
get out on ball. Tho other day Camp
bell lied. McNulty might have also
lied, hnd It not been that soon ntter
his return he was Jailed for beating
The defense McNulty offered was
that after n wake on the night of tho
robbery Campbell asked him to, help
htm carry some pigeons io Sim Davis
house. Knowing that Cnmpbell kept
pigeons niul thnt Sim Davis wns ac
customed to buy them, ho did not
dream that there wns anything wrong.
He admitted on cross-cxnmlnntlon
that he got half the profits. Ilo ex
plained his Hlght by saying that he
nnd Campbell had determined some
time ahead to go down bchuylklll way
looking for work.
' The Interesting feature of tho case
was the Introduction of one of tue
stolen pigeons, which Allspaugh pro
duced to prove that It was his property
nnd that a pigeon fancier could Identi
fy his own birds If he wns any kind ot
a pigeon fancier at nil. He explnlned
the various "points" about pigeons,
told of the difference In the make-up,
appearance nnd action of carriers,
pointers, tumblers nnd others, and
wound up by releasing tji? pigeon In
the court room nnd "shooing" It out
of an open window. The bird Hew to
the east, rising rapidly und then com
menced a wide circle, darting suddenly
nnd swiftly to the west, when It espied
the classic heights of Boone Hill,
where It Is wont to make Its home.
Mr. Wedemun added an Interesting
fenture by asking Judge Edwards to
take the case from the Jury on the
ground that pigeons came under the
category of "wild nnlmuls," and are
not subjects of larceny according to
the statutes und common law. Judge
Edwards dlsinl.sed the motion, hold
ing that pigeons, when domesticated,
as these were, can be "Inreenled."
CIIAHGI1D WITH ROBBERY.
The only other case tried was that
of James Walsh and James McGurty,
charged with robbery and assault and
buttery by John Kobleiolskl. Y'alsh Is
constable of the Twenty-first ward.
The other parties are also residents of
that locality. Soblerolskl and some
Polish companions were sitting on the
retaining wall of the Luzerne street
culvert one night last April when
Walsh und McGlnty came along and
tried to pick a quarrel with the de
fendant. Walsh said something about
Polanders being np'gppd and that not
a blanked one of them had voted for
him. Then they threw Soblerolskl
down, It Is charged, beat him and
lobbed him of his watch. They denied
that they even nssulted him, but the
jury did not believe them, and returned
them guilty of assault and battery.
The evidence to support the robbery
charge was a trifle too weak to con
vict. Mr. Thayer represented the de
fense. The ball of the following defendants
was declared forfeited and capiases Is
sued: Patrick Fltzpatrlek, Max Bur
nett, Michael ltosenbloom and John
Owing to the non-nppearance of the
above defendants and the continuance
of the murder trial, early adjournment
was made In both court rooms.
John 1 Sheridan, convicted Inst
week of assault and battery, was sen
tenced by Judge Arehbald to a line of
$10, the costs and thirty days In the
county jail. Patrick Ratchford was
sentenced to pay the costs for assault
ing and battering Mary Wllhelm.

tics of this odil ware sale arc sonic
bargains that outclass others, both in
their desirability and the sweeping

the sale or not, but once decided upon

their cost or value had no part in de
ciding the price. 'Twits what would
