Monday evening at 5:30 o'clock Mrs.
Mary Lawler, ot Olyphant, having oc
casion to go to Grassy Island availed
herself of a short cut through the
wo vis used by the miners on their way
to and fiom the Grassy Island colliery.
As she went along unmindful of harm,
a man Jumped out from tho bushes
skirting tho path and laid hold of her.
She screamed nnd fought and after
a desperate struggle managed to free
herself from his grasp and escape.
The assailant wns attired In mining
clothes und It wns conjectured at once
when -Mrs. Lawler related her exper
ience at home that he was employed at
the Grasy Island and could probably
be detected. Shu was quite positive

end lruvlew she with her husband and
a neighbor secreted themselves near

THOMAS DEMPSEY
TURNS REFORMER
Residents of Jofamon'a Patch Refuse to

Poor Thomas Dempsey of Johnson's
patch today has an overpowering re
alization of how false men can realty
be If they try To bo a prosecutor In
four cases and those cases to be a ques
tion of public morals and to have three
of the four cases go against him In a
single night and the probability that
the other case will go the same way;
to have fourteen or fifteen men whom
Dempsey thought were his friends tes
tify that he is "empty-headed" and
that the other people are angels nnd
lastly to pay 0 cents apiece to his own
witnesses who went against him It's
no Joke lt'o a sad state of affairs In
deed.
So feels Thomas Dempsey and the
only friend he has his wife.
Dempsey lives in Johnson's patch,
which classic locality Is In the Sixth
ward of Dunmorc. Ho had a grudge
against the whole patch or else he
wanted to purge the condition of things
up there; at any rate he went before
Justice of the Peace Cooney, of Dun
more, yesterday afternoon and Bwore
out information for tho arrest of Thos.
Foley, for gambling and selling liquor
on Sunday; Mary O'Hearn, for selling
without a license; Thomas Qaughan,
selling on Sunday: Michael Flnnerty,
selling without a license, and he
couldn't remember tho name of ono
other law breaker a woman.
PLENTY OF LIQUOR.
Ho swore last night "you can get
liquor on Sunday or Monday or any
other day In any house- In the patch."
Warrants were duly issued and served
yesterday afternoon by Constable Lof
tus. The hearing was given two of th'o
cases last night In 'Squire Cooney's of
fice on Chestnut street, Dunmore.
The place was crowded with men
from the locality of Johnson's patch.
lempsey was there with his wife and
nat in a corner with a shame-faced look
at tho bantering crowd. Attorney R.
A. Zimmerman was counsel for the de
fendants. Dempsey's counsel was his
wife. 'Squire Cooney said something
In French about the Incandescent
lights which were playing at hlde-and-peck:
and got a lamp, lighted It, and
cleared his throat. Then the game
went on.
Thomas Foley was the first one to
receive his medicine. Foley was ar
rested for permitting gambling In his
hotel and In selling liquor on Sunday.
Dempsey swore that he as In Foley's
place at 2 o'clock yesterday morning
and that he was gambling with cards
for money. Mrs. Dempsey fortified her
husband's statement with the Informa
tion that, she had looked through the
window in Foley's place at 1 o'clock
a. m., and had seen money on the table
and cards In the hands of men.
"Well, whero are your witnesses?"
called out Attorney Zimmerman of
Demsey.
"There all here " said Dempsey, and
he called "Michael Gaughan!"
Michael Gaughan took the stand and
much to Dempsey's surprise he swore
that he knew of no gambling In the
place and as for Mrs. Dempsey's look
ing in through the window and seeing
the cards and money; why he himself
(Gaughan) had fastened the shutter
at midnight and he swore that the shut
ter was a piece of walnscoatlng with no
cracks or crevices. Foley, he swore,
was a reputable citizen and never sold
drinks on Sunday.
DEMPSEY FELT BAD.'
Dempsey felt bad when he heard
Caughan thus testifying but he cheered
up and called Domlnlck Dempsey, his
cousin.
"Do you know this man Dempsey!"
asked Attorney Zimmerman.
"Yes.''
"What do you think of htm?"
"Oh, he's a little wild," uaid the wit
ness. "A little bit off," suggested Attorney
Zimmerman.
'Yes'," responded Dempsey' cousin.
Dempsey's face was now really plty
ful, and his wife wore a worried look.
"Whose your other witnesses?" sar
castically called out Attorney Zimmer
man of Dempsey.
"I think," said Dempsey falteringly
that we'd better adjourn the case. The
crowd laughed. "They're all swearln'
lies," he continued, which statement
was greeted with laughter from the
crowd. 'Squire Cooney did not feel
disposed to continue the case and there
was a pause.
Tlnally Dempsey, in peering over the
crowd of men, saw James Dempsey
inoiner relative, and a resident of the
ratrh. He called him to the stand.
This vltness swore nbout the samo
nn he rreeeedlng ones. Foley kept a
respectable place, ho said, and titers
va no Et-'l ng on 'Sunaay.
"What do you think of this man.
Dempsey, the prosecutor," asked Attor
ney Zimmerman In a seductive way.
"He's a peculiar fellow," hesitatingly
responded the witness as If not wash
ing to hurt Dempsey's feelings. Mrs.
Dempsey sat through this, nervously
clutching her husband's arm. She was
his only friend In the room.
Demjaey then called John Ruane
and Ruane swore that he never was
In the pj.ice.
"Como en, come on," railed Demp
sey at the witness. "No, I never was In
tho r'.ace," Bald Ituane. "I thought so,"
kindly put In 'Squire Cooney,
Deinpey was now very down heart
ed. "Let It go till tomorrow night,"
ho bp'soeehed, but the 'Squire ruled
'that as Dempsey had called the wit
nesses the caso should go on. Demp
sey again looked about the room but'
saw no friendly face. "There are all
my enemies," he cried, and he gave up
the cases against Foley, who was
thereupon discharged. Tho costs were
placed on Dempsey.
MRS. O'HEARN ON TRIAU
Tho next defendant was Mrs. Mary
O'Hearn, who was charged with selling
liquor without a license. Dempsey
braced up when this ease wae begun.
Mrs. O'Hearn was the one person who
liad cauMJd him to make the raid. She
had of late prosecuted ono of Demp
sey's relatives and It was a matter of
revenge.
Just before Dempsey waa called At
torney Zimmerman called out to the
crowd "Watch my bicycle out there,
will you boys." "There's no thieves up
here" wns tho answer of one young
fellow 'Squlr Cooney opened tho wln-
dows so that th crowd out sldo could
h'car the case; he had some more
trouble with his Incandescent lights
and the cnoo was resumed. Dempeey
took the stand. He swore that ho had
paid 15 cents to Mrs. O'Hearn for a
quart of boor last November. "And I
owe her rtxty-flve cents yet," he added.
Ho bought beer there all tho time for
the past rlx months. Whon ho bought
It there wna a crowd In the houso,
"Who were sofne of them?" "Mlko
Ferguson, Patrick Ferguson and John
Joyce," said Dempsey, meanwhile look
ing around for tho men. "Any more?"
allied tho attorney. "What more do
you want?" exclaimed Dempsey. When
aslted what Sunday he had bought beer
there ho caused a. laugh by saying EU&
tcr Sunday in hl native tongue.
The case was going on In all serious
ness when suddenly a voice with a Ger
man accent came through the open
window:
"Say, 'squire, I came here to pay my
rent, what about It?"
The crowd yelled with pleasure The
man outside continued:
"Will you relieve me now or wait till
tomorrow?"
"I'll take it now,'' yelled bhek
'Squire Cooney; and will give you a
receipt tomorrow,"
"No, you won't either," was the an
swer, and that settled It.
The case of Mrs. O'Hearn was con
tinued with Just such features. Demp
sey warned the crowd that he will get
a search warrant and find beer In every
house In the patch.
A GENERAL DENIAL.
Mrs. O'Hearn was called to the stand
and Indignantly denied everything.
Dempsey asked her If a man wasn't
near killed In her place one night. "No,
sir; no, sir," she said with posltlveness.
John Judge, a milkman, never saw any
liquor sold there; neither did Thomas
Dlokson.
Thomnu Gaughan drank many a
glass of beer with Mrs. O'Hearn but
he had not paid for It. Then It was
that Dempsey singled out another man.
"I'll not serve for an empty-headed
duck like you," tho fellow answered.
IThe O'Hearn case, like the Foley
case, was decided against DempBey,
and he has to pay tho wltne.s fees and
the alderman and constable's costs In
each case. The cases against Thomas
Gaughan and Michael Flnnerty will
come up this afternon at 5 o'clock.
