The birthday of the Immortal bard
of Avon was commemorated last night
by entertainments of a distinctively
ShakespeaTcan character In tho audi
torium of the high school and In tho
Green Hldge library.
At the high school tho dramatic club
of that Institution made Its debut be
fore an audience that illled the large
auditorium. The entertainment was
under tho direction of Miss Leah
Heath, of tho faculty of the school.
It was In spots what some of tho
youngsters In the audience deemed in
tensely colleglnte. The spots were In
terruptions In the way of beets and
cabbages, which were shied at the
actors on tho stage.
When Julius Caesar was being per
formed, the body of Caesar (Harold
Battln) was carried on the stage, and
as Marc Antony was delivering his Im
mortal speech, "If you have tears, pre
pare to shed them now," some unruly
youngster In the front seat hit tho
sacred remains with a large red beet.
A DECOHATED CAUBAGE.
Previous to this, In the very first
number, "Twelfth Night," while Ar
thur Sancton and Miss Grace 'Will
iams were on the stage, a cabbage,
decorated with beets, came from some
whore and rested with a thump on
the stage. There wcro other beets
that fell like punctuation marks.
Some of tho more dignified students
went for a police oflieer, Patrolman
Moir responding. No arrests were
It mint not be understood by th
public that these little unprograinmed
Incidents were aroused by the acting
ot tho Dramatic club. On the contrary
the young people gave very delight
ful entertainment and ns readers of
Shakespeare showed a great degree of
Intelligence and .some dramatic talent.
Simon Nye, as Mnrc Antony, gave an
especially fine declamation of the fam
ous speech over the corpse of Caesar.
Miss Grace Williams as Viola In
"Twelfth Night," spoke her lines with
remarkable clearness and she has a
good Idea of the style of gesture and
speech peculiar to the professional
The curtains parted at 8.15 o'clock.
The first number was a piano solo,
well played by Miss Anna B. 'Williams.
Scenes from "Twelfth Night" followed.
Miss Salmon, accompanied by Miss
Williams, sang "Word3 of Shakes
peare" and another selection and the
club gave scenes from the fifth act of
"As You Like It." Miss Maud Estelle
made a chnrmlng "Rosalind." Charles
Sweet nlayed a, banjo solo, and was
The second scenes In acts 1 and 3 of
"Julius Caesar" were then performed.
The cast for this was;

Edward E. Hughes spoke tho lines
of "Brutus" In a forcible way. Each
play was given In correct costume.
The success of the entertainment
should encourage a repetition. The pu
pils showed excellent training and tho
Interpretation of Shakespeare Is de
cidedly complimentary to the Instruc

AT THE GREEN RIDGE LIBRARY.
The entertainment In the Green
Ridge libray attracted a good sized
crowd. Tho Misses Reynolds capti

Miss Spencer sang.
Tho rest of the evening was spent In
a reading of parts of Shakespeare with
tho purpose of emphasizing his author

Some Few Eclioes from Former Jen-nings-Smllli
Trial Is Probable. '
It Is the purpose of the defendants
In the latest Jennings suit to force tho
Issue to immediate trial. If possible
the case will come up at the next term
of common pleas.
The first notice taken of the case
on the part of the defendants was by
Ira H. Uunib, who entered an appear
ance and plea of not guilty for him
self, yesterday morning. This makes
it unneccss-ary for the plaintiff to servo
oiilclal notice on the defendants and
knocks the sheriff out of a good sized
fee, which, but for Mr. Burns' action,
tho plaintiff would have to pay.

TOO MUCH POWDER IN THE GUN.

Peter Prntlsh, of Providence.
As a way of celebrating the Friday
after Enstcr Peter Protlsh, residing
near tho Brlsbln mine, yesterday, was
firing off a gun when the weapon burst
nnd the Hying pieces of iron mangled
Protlsh's arm and lacerated h'ls face.
Tho day Is one of general festivity
with tho Polish race. Protlsh had pur
chased tho gun specially for the occa

overloaded It. The concussion threw
him to the ground.
A physician was summoned and the
pclces of Iron extracted. Protlsh's
chances of recovery aro very good, It

BILL OF PARTICULARS.
Respondents Trying to Make a Farce
of the Dunmorc Election Contest.
Voters Examined Yesterday.
From a cursory examination of the
bill of particulars filed yesterday by
the respondents In tho Dunmorc con
test, It would appear that every man
who Is supposed to have voted tho
Republican ticket has had his right of
Every Republican lawyer In "Law
yer's Patch," as the lower end of the
Sixth ward Is commonly known, includ
ing even John G. McAskie, has been
placed on tho list of alleged ineligible.
Clergymen, doctors, merchants and all
the most prominent and most Intelli
gent men of the borough are assailed.
Men who have lived in a "district for
nearly half a century have had their
names placed In the list of thoso at
tacked for being under age or for not
having lived In the dlstilct tho re
quired time. Other men wliv.jioubtless
could draft a ballot law are charged
with violating the Baker act by "re
ceiving assistance in making up their
ballot," when they have no disability.
Tho attorneys for the contestants
declare the bill to he defective inas
much as It does not come up to the
requirements of Judge Archbald's de
cree which directed that a specific
cau!,o be alleged against each vote at
tacked. The bill on the face of It is pro
nounced farcical by all disinterested
parties who have examined It and the
general opinion expressed is that It Is
nothing more or less than a scheme to
pile up the costs of the contest in or
der to stir up a feeling against tho
In yesterday's session of the contest

fourteen of them disqualified. Peter

GUILTY OF MURDER
IN SECOND DEGREE
Verdict Returned Against Constable Max
Koclilcr, of Prlccburg.
RECOMMENDATION OF THE JURY
It Is to the EfloetThat Ho He Chen
tlio I'.itrcino Penalty of the Law.
Jtidgo Edwards Would Not Allow
That Portion of the Verdict to Ho
Head or Plnced on tlio Record.
Murder in tho second degree, with
the recommendation that he bo given
tho full penalty of the law, was tho
verdict returned by the Jury in the
Koehler murder case. Tho jury came
In at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon af
ter having been out since G.RO o'clock
tho night before. They stood five for
murder In the first degree and seven
for second degrco from the very first
balb't until the ninth vote was taken
yesterday after dinner.
One of the jurors, John Doran, of
Covington, was taken violently 111
Thursday night and yesterday morn
ing required the attendance of Dr. P.
F. Gunster. Tho possibility of his be
ing Incapacitated had the effect of
bringing tho five first degree jurors
to compromise on a second degree ver
dict, with the recommendation above
This recommendation Is very un
usual and possibly unique, as far as
this state is concerned. District At
torney Jones, In speaking of the mat
ter, said that while the recommenda
tion Is unusual, It Is In m way Irregu
lar. Judge Archbald, when spoken to
concerning the inntter, said It seemed
to him that a jury lias a light to rec
ommend severity or leniency.
IT WAS NOT READ.
Wliat view Judge Edwards, who pre
sided In the case, takes of the clause
In question of course could not be as
certained, but tho fact that ho would
r ot allow the clerk to read or record
the penalty clause, would Indicate that
ho Is at least In doubt aa to Its regu
larity. The Jury, It Is said, considered tho
strongest paint biuught out by the
prosecution was the evidence on tho
course taken by the bullet, which, it
will be remembered, entered nt the pit
of the stomach and took a downward
slant of 13 degrees. This convinced
them that Kcrycki was shot while in
bed, and not while he was standing
During the progress of the trial Tho
Tribune refrained from making any
thing more than a mere allusion to
Koehler's past record. Now that his
case has been decided and no Injus
tice can be done by a recital of his
record, It Is given below In detail.
