Donnatta Pennate, a Dunmore man,
was before Alderman O. B. Wright
last evenlntr to answer a charge of
dcseitlon made by his wife, Conchlta
l'ennatte. She alleges that he has left
her alone for six whole weeks.
To get out the fact of this neglect
ex-Judge Stanton, who was counsel
for the prosecutrix, met with an awk
ward handicap. Mrs. Pennatte could
not talk English and no Intelligent In
terpreter could be secured. Finally
one of the woman's male friends, Paull
Pozaznko, was used as an Interpreter.
Ho persisted In Injecting opinions
of his own and never repeated what
Mrs. Pennatte said. The defendant's
friends objected to this. They de
manded "fair pluy." It became neces
eary to adjourn the case until an In
telligent Interpreter could be found.
Pennatte was committed to the county
Jail until last evening.

And He Good Nnturcdly Tells How
nnd Why It Wns.
Alexander Johnson, of Archbald, Is
now at tho Lackawanna hospital suf
fering: from a fractured collar bone
and a couple of cuts on the head.
He was struck by a coal train on the
Delaware and Hudson tracks at Arch
bald. yesterday morning and was taken
to the hospital soon afterward.
Johnson good-humoredly blames 1i!b
misfortune to a piece of wire. He said
he was walking along one track and
stooped down to pick up a piece of
rusted wire, While stooping down he
heard the noise of a moving train and
looking ahead bo saw what he had
heard coming right toward him. Ho
Jumped to the other track, where he
was, struck by another train with the
result as stated.
Jbbnson said to Pr. McQrath at the
hqs'pfH: "I4 was a" o account of
that blamed wire," and he smiled.

Time Getting Out of Their Quar
tern. A number of city ofllclals yesterday
afternoon made a tour of Inspection of
tho lire department houses of the cen
tral city, West 'Side nnd South SUle.
In the party were Mayor James G.

ning, Building Inspector Nelson. Fred
Durr, chairman of the fire department
committee of select council; .orenr. P.

ment of the common council; Select
Councilman M. J. Burns and Common
Councllmen John J. Flanaghan, Ed
ward Wenzel, Simon Thomas and P.
The quarters of Crystal Hose com
pany on Linden street were first vis
ited. The building Is rented from the
Blair estate and though old Is quite
well adapted to the needs of the com
pany. It was the concensus of opin
ion of the Inspectors, however, that
the city cannot piect a house for the
Crystals any too soon. Th company
hns two permanent men, Isaac Tlce and
Charles Tropp, and four horses, two
for the hose wagon nnd two for the
steamer. The permanent men gave an
exhibition of the laptdlty with whlrh
they ran respond to an alarm. They
got the hose wagon with the two horses
hitched to It out of the bulldlnft in
twenty seconds after the time the
alarm was sounded. They got the
steamer out In eighteen seconds.
THE NEW ENGINE HOUSE.
The handsome new brick and stone
building erected by the city for the
Nay Aug Engine company was next
visited. The permanent men there are
Eugene Moyer and Henry Brown, col
ored, and they have three horses to
rnre for, one for the hose reel and two
for the steamer Both were out of the
building- In thirty-on and one-half
seconds after the alarm was sounded.
In the cellar of the building Is a water
back stove by means of which the
watc In the boiler of the fire engine
Is always kept warm, the guage usual
ly registering five pounds of steam An
automatic acting torch under the boil
er lights the engine fire the minute the
engineer Jumps or. the engine. It Is
estimated that ten minutes la saved
by these contrivances In raising the
forty pounds of steam necessary to run
The Nay Aug'3 building Is well ar
ranged throughout. There are tub and
shower baths, and a dormitory on th
eecond lloor with six cot. Three slid
ing poles lead ftom that, room to the
engine room below. On the top floor
Is the gymnasium which, as yet, Is
not supplied very extensively with
The first stop on the West SldJ was
made at the Hook and Ladder house,
which Is rented from Philip Schnell,
by the city for $75 per month. The
company has two permanent men,
Henry Stelnhouser and Thomas Con
Hn, and two horses. They are endeavor
ing to secure another horse for It Is
too much for two horses to pull the
truck, which weighs 7.60O pounds with
two men on It up any kind of a stiff
grade. An additional hoise could be
purchased and the necessary changes
made In the harness so that three
horses could be hitched abreast for
about $400, Chief, Hlckey said.
The Hook and Ladder company have
a lively and exceedingly well trained
team of horses. After the alarm was
sounded they got the timk out of the
house In twenty-five seconds. The
next stop was at the Franklin's house,
on North Hyde Park avenue. It Is
owned by the city, and is In charge
of Permanent Men J. It. Kima and
John Lowry. The former is a mechan
ical genius and has arranged n num
ber of unique and valuable devices
about the house. One Is a water motor
for running fans to keep the engine
room cool, and another Is dwlce for
lifting the covering over the sliding
pole hole. Mr. Lowry has also done
his share to add to the beauty and
comfort of the house, which Is one of
the most neatly' arranged In the de
partment. The company has on Its
rolls the oldest fireman In the city In
point of service. He Is T H. Allen,
On th'e exhibition test, the hose
wagon, which is drawn by one horse,
got out of the house In twenty-eight
seconds, and the steamer, with two
horses attached, got out In thirty-four
and one-half seconds. One of thi en
glne horses has only been In the de
partment a short time or the time
would have been several seconds less.
The building occupied by tho Colum
bia company, on Division street, Is also
owned by the city. It has one perm
anent man, G. W. Myen, and two of
the finest horses In the department.
Mr. Myers got the horses and wagon
out of the house. In twenty-one and
one-half seconds. The hose wagon Is
In need of repairs and In August one
of the combined hose wagons and
chemical engines will be substituted
for It. The present wagon will then
bo overhauled and given to the Nay
Augs or Eagles. The Columbia's house
was found in flrst-clasa shape through
out. SIXTH WARD COMPANY.
The ofllclals, after leaving the Col
umbia quarters, crossed over to Belle
vue and Inspected Eagle Engine house,
which Is rented from Patrick Golden
by the city. The house was In charge
of Joseph Heltman, the department ex
tra man. James Ruane, tho recently
elected Permanent man, was also pres
ent. Tho Are department committee
men recommended the placing of gas
In the house and also noted some oth
er Improvements. The company Is
sorely In need of a hose wagon. On
tho test Heltman got the team and
hose reel out of the house In twenty
two seconds. There is three bunks in
tho dormitory, on the second floor of
The William Connell Engine house,
on Plttston avenue, South Side, was
the first South Side company visited.
The company Is comfortably housed In
a brick building owned by William
Connell. Sterling Slmrell is the perm
anent man, and he has two horses to
care for,' He got the horses arid wagon
out of the house In twenty-four sec
onds. The second lloor Is used for a
meeting room, recreation room and
Neptune Engine company la housed
In tho oldest fire department building
In the city, and Is sadly In need of re
building. Owing to one of the horses
becoming somewhat nervous the test
did not do the members of tho com
pany Justice. They got the hose .wag
on out In twenty-seven seconds and
tho cnglno In something over thirty.
There aro two permanent men, Wil
liam Flckus nnd Henry Hcnnand, they
have three horses to cure for.
THE B.ECOUD BREAKERS.
In the Century Hose house the best
official exhibition of tho day was giv
en. Edward Kneller, tho permanent
man, got his horses nnd wagon out In
sixteen .seconds. It was tho opinion of
the ofllclalB that the Century company
should have a new building. The pres
ent quarters are rented from Mrs.
Kelly and nro not all that could be
In the company rooms on the second
floor a tasty lunch was served to ,tho
visitors by the members of tho com
pany. The last place Inspected was tho
Phoenix Chemical house, on Upper
Lackawanna avenue, which Is In bad
sanitary condition. There are three
permanent men, Thomas Campbell, J.
W. George and Lincoln Tillman, col
ored. They got their two horses and
tho Chemical engine out of the house
In sixteen and one-half seconds on the
official test, but on a second trial re
duced the time to thirteen seconds.

Works Against T. V. Leonard.
Again this week, tho three court
looms are being utilized for common
pleas. Judge Archbald has the Von
Storch case In the supreme court room;
Judge Edwards Is presiding In No. 1
and Judge D. W. Searle, of Montrose,
Is In No. 2.
None of tho courts were able to get
under way until the afternoon. No
cnso could bo gotten ready for No. 1 or
No. 2, and In the Von Storch case a re
cess was taken for the purpose of set
tlement. The matter of settlement -was sug
gested by Judge Archbald at tho open
ing of the case in the morning. He
said the land in dispute was not worth
the contention that Is being made for
It and as a matter of economy for the
county and the parties Involved he
felt that an effort should bo made to
effect a compromise.
The lawyers agreed to get together
but that Is all they could agree Fo and
when tho hour for tho afternoon ses

The defense is still hammering away
to prove tho alleged trust and has a
long string of wltnesseu yet to call. The
plaintiffs have virtually not been heard
from at all, having at the outset sim
ply submitted their record of title.
How much testimony they will have
to offer In rebuttal is possibly not even
known to themselves at this time.
When tho case will be brought to a ter
mination Is therefore a mere matter of
guess work. The most popular guess
Is that the case will continue all this
POINT AT ISSUE.
Nearly all the afternoon was spent
in fighting over the point as to whether
or not a declaration of ownership In
the absence of tho other contending
party has any force. Judge Archbald
had decided against it three or, four
tiiues but yesterday when the defend
ants again raised 'it. he decided to con

chambers to brush up Thl3 Is given

The case of W. C. Tunstall against
Joseph F. Baumelster and others was
called for retrial before .Judge Searle
In No. 2 J. Elliott Ross appeared for
the plaintiff and J. J. H. Hamilton and
Joseph O'Brien for the defense.
The defendants are all prominent
members of the Patriotic Order Sons
of America. In 1890 they began the
publication of amonthly Journal devot
ed to tho interests of the order and
known as the "Sons of America." Itwas
printed at the plant of the Providence
Register. After a short life the pro
jectors of the paper became tired of
Journalism or rather the expense part
of it, and concluded to give It up.
At the time of the demise of the pa
per, the Sons of Amerlcaxompany owed
a printing bill to the Providence Reg
ister amounting to $240. For this Tun
stall now sues. Tho defense alleges
that J. U. Hopewell and not Tunstall
was the owner of the paper and that
full settlement was made with him by
turning over to him the assets of the
Sons of America consisting of about
$000 In collectable subscriptions and ad
vertising. Hopewell denies this, ex
plaining that the paper and Its assets
were turned over to him with the Un
derstanding that he was to run it for
them, giving them a paper that would
boom their order in return for their
present of tho little good will and as
sets of the "Sons, of America."
THE FORMER TRIAL.
At the former trial of the case a ver
dict was secured for the plaintiff in the
full amount of his claim. A new trial
was granted by Judge Archbald on the
ground that he erred In refusing to ad
mit as evidence a card circulated by
Hopmvell In tho county campaign an
nouncing himself as a candidate for
auditor and giving as one of his rea
sons for claiming the suffrage of the
Republicans that he was the owner of
a stannch Republican paper, the Provi

Before Judge Edwards in tho main

BETTERLY AGAINST CHAPl'EI .
In the cnso of A. E. Betterly against
Wlllam Chappcl, Judge Archbald dt -nled
the new trial requested by tho
Georgo E. Patch applied for a new
trial of his case against tho city, which
was decided against him last week.
Patch and his wife, It will be recalled,
sued for Injuries which the wife sus
tained by renspn of being thrown out
of n carriage on, the "Notch" road at
a point where a, ditch had been con
structed by thp city to turn off the
water. One of tlie reasons given by
Attorney Sopor ,ifi Jils petition for a
new trial was that Judge Lynch erred
when he said;
"Gentlemen of the Jury, excuse me,
but this wholo case hinges on the ques
tion of whether or not the water In that
ditch was muddy. If it was clear the
defendant could have seen the depth
of the ditch and he would be guilty of
contributory negligence In driving over
CHILD DEAD WHEN BORN.
Mr. and Airs. Kelly Sue to Recover
Damages for the Loss of Its
Scrvlccs-A Uulquc Case.
Whether or not parents can recover
for loss of bervlces of a stlll-'born child,
whoso premature delivery wa.s
consequent upon tho act of
the defendant ' Is a question now
before the local courts. It Is
claimed that, in Now York state, in tho
case of Butler against the Manhattan
Elevated Railroad company, the court
of appeals decided, Indirectly, that such"
recovery was possible, though In the
case In question the plaintiff was un
successful. The reason of the failure of tho
plaintiff was that the condition of tho
child precluded tho possibility of de
termining, whether or not It would
have had an earning power had It
lived, and. If it was capable of earn
ing, what its capacity would be.
In the local case these obstacles do
not exist, the child having been deliv
ered physically perfect with the excep
tion of life being extinct, and It is
argued that the Now York finding is
per contra a decision in favor of tho
Tho case Is that in which Mrs. Eliza
beth Kelly and her husband, Thomas
Kelly, are tho plaintiffs and the Scran
ton Traction company the defendant.
Mrs. Kelly boarded a car and was
about to sit down when the motorman
started tho car with a Jerk and she
was thrown heavily upon the seat, with
the consequences above Indicated. She
sues for suffering and debilitation, the
husband claims for the loss of her ser
vices and both claim for loss of the
services of the child.
The case was yesterday heard before
Arbitrators C. B. Gardner, J. W. Wal
ker and E. W. Thayer. Attorneys I.
H. Burns and C. L. Hawley appeared
for the plaintiff and H. E. Hand for
the company. Sir. Hawley, who made
the opening for his side, said that as
