WAS A VERY BUSY
DAY FOR POLICE
They Rounded Up, Sixteen Prisoners In
the City Saturday.
FIVE OF THEM WERE PICKPOCKETS
Three Woro Tnken Into Custody nt
tho Circus (.rounds nnd Two on
Washington Avcnuo--rormcr Were
Asked to Furnish Hnll--.Mnnncr In
Which tho Various Cases Were Dis
posed of by Aldcritmn Fuller Ycs
Chief Robling and his subordinates
were kept very busy Saturday. The
circus and the Memorial day parade
brought thousands to the city and with
the former tame a drove of plck-pock-cts
nnd others who are wont to get in
to trouble with the police because of
the nature of their occupations. Dur
ing tho day 16 arrests were made by
tho officers .Both parades were handled
in a most satisfactory manner.
Of the 1C arrests five were for pick
pockets nnd one was a "drunk and dis
orderly" woman. The most interesting
police doing of the day was tho arrest
of three subpIcIour characters at thu
show grounds by Patrolman Lona Day
and Detective Charles J. SUverburgh
nt C o'clock In the evening. Tho men
wore noticed fingering around In tho
crowd near the ticket wagons and fin
ally th-p evident partnership of the
three decided the officers to arrest
them. They were placed on a street
car, oblectlng nil tho while, nnd the
jitnrt made for the station house. The
car lrad not gone many yards when
one of the prisoners attempted to pass
n handful of bills through one of the
small spaces In the back of the car
seats. Patrolman Day grabbed the fel
low's hands nnd after a struggle the
money wns taken from him. Tho in
ference was that he was either passing
the money to a friend In the next seat
or was taking this means to get rid of
It. The money was counted.
OFFERED A 11KIBE.
' There's $30 here" announced Patrol
"That's all right," said tho prisoner,
"J was going to give you that if you
They were not released, how ever, and
were taken before Alderman Fuller
yesterday morning each was held in
$500 ball to appear at court. The th'reo
men were given an opportunity to pur
chase their freedom on payment of a
fine of $15 each. This they refuse to do
and consequently they were taken to
the county jail yesterday afternoon.
There Is no direct evidence to convict
tlie men of plck-pockutlng. Besides
the $30 other moneys amounting in all
to almost $100 were found upon the per
sons of the prisoners.
The men gave their names as Henry
Johnson, aged 42 years, Henry Robin
son, aged 30 years; and Frank Norton,
aged 20 years. Johnson stated that his
home Is in Massachusetts. He is an ar
istocratic looking individual and might
pass as a banker or broker. His face
Is bearded with a nicely kept VanDyke
and he was well dressed. It was he
who did the talking and made the at
tempt to pass the money. The others
two men. appear to be less prosperous
in life. Saturday morning they were
observed by the police acting in a sus
picious manner at Lackawanna and
. fleorge Kelly and William Ryan, the
two others arrested on suspicion of
being pick-pockets were discharged
They nave their homes as Now York
State. One was a stone-cutter theother
a harness maker. Detective Morse
and Patrolman Hawks arrested the
men on Washington avenue.
THE OTHER CASES.
Alderman Fuller disposed of the rest
of the batch as follows:
James Boyle and James Brown, ar
rested at 10 o'clock p. m. 'Saturday,
for drunkenness and street begging on
Spruce street by Patrolmen Evans and
McMullen, were allowed to depart for
a further audience with Mayor Bailey.
S. Millar was drunk on Penn avenue
In the afternoon. He resisted Patrol
man Karlns and was fined $3. He re
fused to pay and went to Jail for thirty
"John Logan and Patrick Kane," as
they gave their names, were arrested
for reckless driving. Logan and Kane
are young men. They drove up Lack
awanna avenue at an easy pace, and
at the Wyoming avenue corner ran
down a 4-year-old son of John Lcn
tlns, of Washington avenue. The boy
was not badly injured, although tho
horse walked over him and one of the
carriage wheels passed over the little
Patrolman Flaherty arrested the
young men in. the carriage, and Alder
man Fuller fined each $3, which they
Martin Fiannery was badly worsted
when Aldermnn Fuller Interrogated
him. Martin, of course, was drunk
Saturday and had a friend with him
In the same condition. This friend
persisted in doing inexcusable things.
He assaulted one man and shoved a
lady off tho curb stono on South Wash
ington avenue. This was In the after
noon and a crowd nod surrounded the
two celebraters. Patrolman Block and
Walsh came along and arrested Fian
nery. WAS NOT TRUTHFUL.
His friend escaped. On the stand
yesterday Fiannery acted as If he were
not truthful. He admitted that he has
known his "friend" for the past two
years, but he swore that he didn't
know 'this friend's name. He was fined
$5 for drunkenness and on general prin
ciples, Charles Hawkins, colored, wanted to
get Into tho Rescue Mission at 11.30
o'clock and finally was satisfied with
a lunch wagon. Here he made a noise.
Patrolmen Duggan and Thomas ar
rested Mr. Hawkins and In default of
$5 .fine he was committed.
Mabel Lloyd was arrested for mak
ing a disturbance on the midnight
train from Lake Ariel. Detective
Roche was on the same train and ar
rested the woman. Patrolman Bloat
escorted her to tho police station. Sho
paid $3 to Alderman Fuller at the
hearing yesterday after shedding many
tears not because of the money or what
she had done but because the officers
were cruel enough to arrest her.
Charles O'Nell und John Yerkers
amused themsejves at 2 JO o'clock yes
terday morning by throwing stones
at each other on South Washington av
enue. Patrolman Welsh and Bloeh In
terrupted thim Yerker paid his fine of
$3 and O'Noll was committed in de
fault. Frank Shannon paid $3 fine for wan
derlng about the city In an Intoxicated
condition yesterday morning. He was
arrested by Patrolman Oscheldle
Patrick Mcflu I re was found Bleep
ing yesterday morning under a train
of cars standing in the Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western ynrd. He

MORNINQ FIRE AT DUNMORE.
Thrco Dwelling Houses Wcro
Three houses were partially destroyed
by lire early yesterday morning on
Willow street, Dunmore. So rapidly
did the fire bunt that the occupants
barely escaped' with their lives, Tho
fire started In the houso owned and oc
cupied by Andrew Ferguson, a defec
tive flue being the cause.
Shortly after 2 o'clock Ferguson was
awakened and found the room so full
of smoke that he had to grope his way
to the stairway up which large sheets
of flame came.
The fire spread with much rapidity,
and soon the large three-story building
next to it had caught. The basement
of the building was used as a store by
Lingo Magllo, the upper part being di
vided Into apartments and was occu
pied by several families
These two were completely destroyed.
The firemen turned their attention to
saving the adjoining property, several
of which were ablaze. The building in
the rear of Ferguson's was partially
destroyed, the roof and one side being
badly damaged. The house is owned
by Michael O'Boyle, and was occupied
by Bartholomo Corlo nnd family.
Tho loss Is fully covered by insur
ance and is as follows: Llnglo Magllo,
$1,100: Andrew Ferguson, $850; Michael
DIED VERY SUDDENLY.
George Saul Passed Away at Ills Home
on the South Side 'After an
George Saul, who for the past thirty
seven years has been a resident of the
South Side, died suddenly from an apo
plectic stroke at C.30 o'clock Saturday
evening at his home, 621 Cedar avenue.
He wns sick only an hour before death
occurred and in the morning had been
In the central city viewing the parade.
At 4.30 o'clock Mr. Saul was driving
his express wagon, a business he has
followed for over twenty-fivo consecu
tive years. He felt conscious that he
was becoming ill and hastily drove to
Dr. Albert Kolb, whoso ofilce Is with
in a block of. the Saul home, was sum
moned, but before he arrived at the
houso Jlr. Saul wns dead. Coroner
Longstreet was summoned at 1.30
o'clock yesterday afternoon. A post
mortem examination and inquest was
conducted at the house.
Coroner Longstreet found that death
was caused by an apoplectic stroke.
Tho Jury rendered a verdict according
ly. The jurors were: John C. Welchel,
Fred Miller, jr., Fred C. Miller, Fred L.
Terppe, II. Rolbunn and E. D. Owen.
The deceased was 64 years of nge and
was born In Germany. He came to Am
erica In 1857 and for three years lived
at Hawley. He then came to this city
and has lived on the South Side ever
since. He conducted what Is known as
a "local express" and In this business
was well known throughout the city.
Up to within four years ago Mr. Saul
enjoyed unbroken good health. At that
period, he wns attacked by la' grippe
and has never fully recovered. The
kindliness of the man's nature Is best
shown In nbout the last act of his life.
In the morning a neighbor who is
suffering from a broken li g asked Mr.
Saul to drive over to town to see tho
parade. Tho old man compiled and the
two witnessed the parade from the
wagon seat. In the afternoon he con
tinued his work as expressman.

ANNUAL VISIT OF
It Was a Real OldTlme Circus Day
Despite the Duslness Depression.
HOLIDAY HELPED TO MAKE IT SO
Tho Circus, Too, Wns n Gcnuino Old
1'nsliioncd One nnd Gnvo All That
Could He Desired In the Wny of En-tcrtntnmont--Au
Some of tho Other lUg Tent Shows
In Sovcrnt ltcspccls--Ono Promi
Saturday was a regular old-fashioned
circus day. It might not have
been an old-time circus day, as there
are many people hereabouts Just now
who could bring themselves to tho
hardship of letting the elephant go un
seen, but It was a legal holiday and the
first of the warm weather holidays and
so the people, tho common people, who
make the circus mare go said to them
selves, come what may we'll see it and
Tho circus, too, was a regular old
fashloncd cltcus. It was as big as the
biggest of them and as good as the
best of them and It had some feature
which to the minds of many caused it
to excell the most excellent of them.
One of the principal features was that
more regard was shown for quality
than quantity. There wasn't a "ground
tumbler" In the whole show, excepting
one woman and she only turned hand
springs as a side Issue. And it Is a
great temptation for a show that is
tunning three rings nnd a stage to trot
out all its tent hands, cooks, wagon
ers and the like who are capable of do
ing a handspring and use them ns bal
last in the end rings while one of the
"principal" nets is going on in the cen
ter. This circus allowed the end rings
to remain empty when nn especially
good turn wns on In the center and the
Innovation was a welcome one.
THE BEST WAS GIVEN.
This same rule prevailed throughout
the entire programme. Whatever was
presented was the best of Its kind.
The bareback riders each had a spe
ciality. One juggled balls and knives
and flaming bars, while going about
the ring at a break-neck pace. Another
in addition to the ordinary feats turned
summersaults on the horse's back. An
other did vaulting from the ground
to the horse. Others did double acts,
two horses and two persons appear
ing In each ring, and so on down the
Tho aerial work was certainly the
finest ever seen here. Tho bar and
trapeze artists, It might be said be
gan where their rivals leave off. The
new and lavishly ndvertlscd feat
ure of the bicycle work must, how
ever, bo left out of this laudation.
It Is novel, but that Is about all that
can bo said or it.
What was unquestionably the great
est feature of the show or, In fact, of
any s-how ever seen here, was the
work of the performing seals. These
animals, Alaskan travelers tell us, are
to lacking anything approaching Intel
ligence that they allow themselves to
be driven Into a shallow creek or upon
the shore, and stand calmly by to be
killed one after the other with a club.
Yet the five that Captain Woodward
exhibited here Saturday did tricks that
will equal those done by the most In.
telllgent of animals.
They, to all appearances, understood
cm tain commands, nnd one of them
was made to do some reasoning or at
all events the spectators were led to
Judge 'that II was an act of reasoning.
The trainer nsked one of the seals to
strike a chord on the banjo, that the
others might sing. The others seem
ingly waited patiently for the chord.
FISH WAS ALL GONE.
Just before the musical number had
been announced the trainer had passed
around somo fish, and Mr. Accompan
ist has not fared as well as the others.
When he was called to give the chord
he turned around around and whined
a remonstrance. "I haven't got any
more fish. That's right now. Go
nhead and play." Tho seal stopped
whining, but hung his head sullenly
as If to say "Well, maybe you haven't.
but I doubt you." "I guess he doesn't
believe me," the trainer says and sum
moning a helper ho has tho flsh tub
brought on the platform and places
in front of the sulking seal.
Mr. Seal looks Into the tub, pokes
his nose around tho sides, hesitates a
minute as It satisfying himself that It
will do no good to keep up the trick
and tossing back his head bangs away
at the banjo with his flopper or front
leg, or whatever it is. As may be be
lieved, this brings down the tent.
The menagerie, with its two mon
strous hlppotaml, the parade with its
dozens of open cages and every other
appurtenance and part of the cltcus is
big and up-to-date, and all In all
Scranton votes the Forepaugh & Sell's
Brothers circus a first class entertain
