Fun in a Wilkesbarre Court
(New York Sun.)
The dull monotony of our
court proceedings was enlivened
one day last week in the case of
the Commonwealth against Dob
son, in which the defendant was
accused of assault upon a young
lady named Hetler, by kissing
her against her will. The plain
tiff complained that Dobson, "by
force of arms, malice afore
thought., and instigated by the
devil, did then and there violent
ly assault, waylay," etc, She
told her story in a plain, straight
forward kind of way, to the ef
feet that she was enjoying the
evening breezes while leaning
over her father's fence, and that
William Dobson came along,
seized her by the hands, and
forcibly pulling her over the
palisade, committed the assault
for which she claimed redress at
the hands of the law. A sister of
the complaignt testified that
she did notiee the alleged in
propriety, because of the dark
ness, and she being in another
part of the yard, but she beard
a kiss, or something that sound
ed like a kiss, and knew that
something was going on.
Dobson claimed the privilege
of being his own witness, and he
told the part of the story omit
ted by Miss Hetler and her sis
ter. He is a jolly specimen of an
Englishman. His narrative of
the occurrence in which he had
become involved runs as follows :
Dobson-Yer see, yer 'onors,
I was walking along, singing
"What will the 'arvest be ?"
Gen. McCartney (counsel for
plaintiff, disposed to have some
fun while confusing the witness)
-You was singing "What will
the 'arvest be?" (closely imitat
ing the intonation of the wit
Dobson (very composedly)
Yes, sir; what will the 'arvest
Gen. McCartney-"What will
the 'arvest be ?"
Dobson (unruffled) - "What
will the 'arvest be !"
Gen. McCartney-Well, go on,
Dobson-Yer see, yer 'onors,
I was going along, singing,
"What will the 'arvest be?"
when I heard Mary singing
" What will the 'arvest be ?"
Gen. McCartney - She was
singing, "What will the 'arvest
By this time there were dce
cided evidences of meriment all
oyer the court room; but Dob.
son remained as imperturable
as though officiating at a funeral.
Dobson-Yes, sir; she were
singing "What will the 'arvest
be?" but not so laud as I was,
and I called out, " Hallo, Mary,
are that you ?" and she said it
be. I went up to the fence, and
she said she were hall halone,
has her father 'ad gone to
Gen. McCartney - Gone to
class! What did she mean by
Dobson- Why, any fool knows
what "class" means. Her fath
er had gone to class meeting,
and left 'er ball halone. We
chatted a little, and then . -.
Gen. McCartney-Well, you
have heard her testimony. You
seized her, pulled her.over the
fence and kissed her?
Dobson - No. That testi
mony is false. We talked a
while, and she sort leaned hov
er the fence-like as if she want
ed me to-and just then Satan
got the best of me, and I kissed
'er right hon the mouth. I found
out "What wilt the 'arvest be,"
and I think she was a lieasy
Here the gravity of the court,
counselors and spectators gave
way, and seldom in a court of
justice has there been such a
scene of uncontrollable hilarious
ness. Judge Harding fairly
roared himself hoarse with laugh
ter, and all business was sus
pended for several minutes to
allow those in the court-room
to recover their equanimity..
Dobson was acquitted of the
charge of assault, but must pay
half the costs of the suit and his
share of the 'arvest:
A grand council with the In
dians was held in the east room.
There were twenty-five savages;
they were painted. and wore
feathers. Tbh speeches were in
the usual style.. Big Roads
said: Great Father," . liuding
to Hayes, "I have had some
promise from the President and
have been looking for it ever
Little Wound said, "' We want
religion and a Catholic priest."
He Dog said, "I am a Northern
Indian, but I am a wise man inPt
that country. I want my pemo
pie to be raised . dr to be.
quiet, and we wanr to know
which is the wisest road for us,
and which is the best way to
live. You get rich, and that is
what I want to do, and I want
to do it the way you do.' The
conference adjourned to to-day.
Mrs. Hayes made the acquain
tance of the savages. -The Star
says she received them gracious
ly, and 4theyi bowed5 withthe
politeness of dancing masters
when shaking handr A J
