released from the Eastern penitentiary.
He was sentenced on Dec. 14, 1895, by
Judge aunster to one year and nine
months' imprisonment in the peniten
tiary for aggravated assault and bat
tery. Ho was Indicted for assault with
Intent to kill.
That ho was not called upon to an
swer a chargo of murder was little less
than a miracle. Lnfcosky and Alexand
er Kressler were suitors for tho hand
of n Miss Ludeweka Yankofskl, a beau
tiful young Polish woman. Ono night
In July, 1895, Kressler took her to a
picnic nt Greenwood and on tho way

tentions than Kressler and Lafcosky.

The annual picnic of tho Scranton
Llederkrans at Fnrvlew yesterday was
quite well attended by members and
their friends from Scranton,, Carbon
dnle and Honesdalo. Tho elements were
all that could bo desired and the Mooslc
mountain breezes never seemed more
refreshing. Bauer's band and orchestra
furnished music for dancing, and also
gave a concert In the afternoon. A
pleasing feature of tho day's enjoy
ments was tho vocal music rendered
by the Llederkranz under direction of
Professor John T. Watklns.
A shower about three o'clock in the
nfternoon postponed the festivities for
a few minutes and caused the excur
sionists to scamper for cover without
regard to proper dignity. But the
sparkling foliage was soon again
bath'ed in sunlight and merry-making
continued without interruption until
the time for the departure of the last
train for Scranton.
