Tlio Scranton Detective Gets Entangled
in the Pliocnh Contract Case
Wllkes-Barre, Feb. 10 The case
ngalnst A L. Spencer and Thomas Ali
bi ey, of Scianton, who weie on tilul
on choice of hnvlnir consulted to de
fiaud Geoige W. Koons, continues to
excite Intel est. The testimony for the
piosecutlon closed yesteiday and Mi.
Palmer opened for the defense today
In the presentation of the case Mr. Pal
mer held thut the conspiracy was all
on pnit of Mllnlr, the man who ttiined
state's evidence, and that Messrs.
Spencer and Aubrey were dtawn Into
the scheme by him.
Thomas Aubrey, one of the defend
ants, was the llrst witness called. He
said ho wns a bookkeeper and nn ex
pel t accountant. He 111 st met Mllalr
In Novembei, ISO'i, at which time the
foi matlou of the Phoenix Contract
company was talked of. Aubioy said
Mlluli pioposctl to him to become sec
letaty and tieasu'rer of the new com
pany and spoke of the money he would
put Into the business. Mi. Aubrey In
answer to questions of Mr. Palmer
went ovei the foimatlon and the opci
atlons of the Phoenix Contract com
pany at length. Ho said tho concern
hud been oigunlzed, us fat as he was
concerned, for pei fectlj legitimate pui
poses He descilbed the negotiations
w lth Mr Koons lor materials and de
nied that theie was any conspiracy or
intention of fraud. On cross examina
tion bj Mi. Fell Aubrey was conf tout
ed with his coitespondence to Mllalr
and asked to explain ceitaln para
graphs. He was evasive, however, and
many of his answers weie quite lame
Altogether he did not make a good im
pression on cioss examination. At one
point Aubtey was shown a paragraph
In one of his letteis to Mllalr in which
lie said Koons was threatening to make
trouble and that he had consulted a
law j or, who told him to "allow Koons
to stew in his own juice."
He was also asked who the lawyei
was who told him that and lefused to
answer. After a wrangle between the
attoinojs, Judge Dennett told Aubiey
to answer, and he said It was Mi.
Shuitleff. Aubrey was bi ought down
to the $3,000 placed In bank by Mr.
Spencer to the ciedlt of the Phoenix:
Contract company and admitted that
It was for the puipose of getting a rat
ing. He coulel nut explain why the
fact of the $3,000 debt to Spqncer was
not put In the statement to the mercan
tile agencies. He was asked to explain
why $G,100 was paid Spvmcer when the
debt was only $3,700 and said the excess
was to pay some of Mllali's old notes.
Aubiey was asked to explain how
they expected to pay Koons at the time
the contract for $1J,000 of muteiiuls was
made with only $15 In bank, nnd said
they" expected to sell the mateilal and
get the pioceeds Witness said he hud
known Spencer two yeurs, duilng pan
of thut time was his bookkeeper and
general managei. Spencer was a man
ufacturer of nails and spikes.
Among tho Sciantonlans who hnd
been summoned to testify to Mi. Spen
cers honesty wete Attorney John B.
Ceilings, Piothonotniy Piyor, County
lieasuier Scitadt, Reese G. Riooks,
Saiidv Stlllwell, Robeit M. Scianton,
John II. Fellows, M. II. Dale, It, T.
Elack, Barney Slocum, Sidney Bioad
bent, John Jeimyn, Geoige L Dlekbon
and John R. Da Is.
After listening to some character tes
timony Koons, the piosecutor, wns
culled to the stand for fuither cioss
iLxamlnatlon. He was asked by Mr.
"Did you say to Mllalr In the piesence
of W. F. Cllffoul, 'It ou throw up
Spencer and sign this paper I will give
jou $1,000?" "
"Absolutely no," lesponded the Wit
ness. W. F. Clifford, a Scianton detective,
was then called to tho stand and testi
fied that he heaid the offer mentioned
made by Kponb to Mllalr. He heaul
Koons make the ofter thiee times, once
at tho Hotel Jetmjn, once at the Dela
waie and Hudson depot, and once on
Wjomlng avenue near the Dime bank.
Mllalr was under nu est at that time
on complaint of Mr. Koons. "I was to
airest Mllnlr," said Cllffoid, "on condi
tion that he did not give up Mr. Spen
cer. Later Mr. Koons offeied $t,000 to
The witness said he was employed
by John T, Lennhan, who Is private
counsel for the piosecutor
On cioss-eam)natloii he was asked If
his instiuctlons weie not to unest Ml
lnlr If he attempted to leave Scianton.
He said probably that was collect. He
denied that ho hud been ill Inking and
that Mr. Lenahan had told him he was
"Wasn't It join duty to'make a full
