tfllE SCItANTON TRIBUNE WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 28, 1894.
7 THAT SUIT FORWATER RENT It Will lie Given 'tithe Jury for ton , sidcration This Afternoon. . INTERESTING LEGAL 1JATTLE Testimony That Was llcprd Yesterday la tho Cosc-Non-Sult in the Kvcrlinit Ejectment Tasc-Otlier Cases in Court Yesterday. As President AV. W. Soranton, of the Oas and Water company, was the prin cipal witness fur the plaintiff In the suit now on trial before Judge Gunster in the main court room, his testimony occupied the greater part of the atten tion of the court and jury. He resumed his evidence yesterday morning and went on to tell how he estimated the amount of money that was a fair equiv alent to the supply of water surrep titiously consumed by the defendant steel company. All through the trial there has been a hot legal warfare carried on between the opposing attorneys. As quickly as u question was put by the. plaintiff, either Attorney Johnson, of Fhiladel pi.., or Olmstead, of Harrisburg, was up with an objection. When Mr. Scran ton was asked to give the water bills for which the suit Is brought it was tediously opposed, but Judge flunster allowed the bills In evidence. Jn detail they are ns follows: Water used at converting from March 1, ISM, to Jan at 11,500 a year Water ueil ut foundry, works . I, 1S!M, Jl-1,750 00 boiler machine,, carpenter and smith rhopn, during same time Water used ut large mule barn anil l'lne Brook mule barn, same time, 150 head at 5 each, total, $750 Water used through secret l-inuh 2,950 00 7.375 00 connection at.JO.Su" a year CH.8f.ti SU Total amount 1,1MI Cil How r.stimate Was .Made. The witness told how he fixed those rates, He snld that his estimates were based on the tonnage of the mills. The Scranton Steel mill averaged an out-put-of 100,000 tons n year. The price of water Is fixed at 5 cents a ton for u year, making JS,000. Half of this water is con sumed In the converting department, which would make the cost of supply ing It about $4,000. Of this supply be tween one-third and me-half Is used for cooling purposes: that Is for cooling the molds, the pit, Ingots, cupolas, etc. The umount of money represented In the consumption of this water would easily, at a fair estimate foot up $1,500. And the water used at the upper mill would be about the same, basing the cost on the relative outputs of the two mills. Another way of estimating It Is by means of the pump that now forces the water to the mills. It sends out S.'iO.OoO gallons of water a day and at the -i at-.?, of 8 cents a thousand gallons the price would , amount to $8,400 a year. Mr. Scranton thought in the face of these ligures that 1,1,500 a year was a very conservative estimate. The Item of watering the mules was next explained. The usual charge Is $0 a head, but In the bill only $3 for every 150 mules was estimated. In the item of secret connection between the pipes of the reservoir and the Gas and Water company's main, Mr. Scranton said that pipe was capable of supplying be tween 500.000 and COO.OOO gallons of water a day. He estimated that $BG,866.C6 was n. P.ilr phnrire fur ten vinrs. iUastfr Mechanic. Niebell was called to testify as to the number of times this kecrct connection was used, ar.d he slatM that it was not used more than thii ty whole days In the ten years. The bill of $2,950 for water used at the foundery, boiler, machine, and black smith shops was based on the water used at thes places according to the estimates made on the other items, lie cause this water was also surreptitious ly used. Superintendent Reeves Testifies. With the Introduction nf the cor respondence that passed between the' two companies, Mr. Scranton's testi mony, was closed. Superintendent Hub ert Reeves was the last witness for the plantiff. His testimony was, In effect, concerning tde pressure of water at the tire hydrants used at the mills, liefore the secret connection was taken off the pressure amounted to nearly forty pounds, and after It was taken off it amounted to only fifteen pounds. The disparity In the different pressures was tuken as a guide to the amount of water passing through the secret 4-inch pipe. Attorney Olmstead moved for a com pulsory non-suit, submitting a compli cated thread of urgument on the evi dence of the plaintiff. The motion was nrgued for a long time and at length Judge Gunster refused the motion and ordered the defendant to present their case. Attorney Joseph O'Brien began for the defendant. He told the Jurors that they proposed to show that the plain tiff by the agreement of the president and directors of tho company had agreed to change the.clause In the con tract on which the suit hinged. After Mr. O'Brien's opening Kdvvln F. Hat- tield, of New York, president of the Lackawanna Iron and Steel company was culled to the stand. In 187G he was chosen president of the-company, which was then the Lackawanna Iron and Coal company. In 1.881 a supplemental contract was drawn up and then At torney Olmstead made an offer pro posing to prove by the witness the con struction of the contract, but court would not allow It. . ' Court then adjourned for the after noon. Attorney Olmstead said that about an hour is all that woufcl be occu pied In evidence today, but arguments OUR The Great Blood Purifier and Llv'jr Regulator. 200 DAYS' TREATMENT! $1.00 COMPOSED OF And will Po-iflvl euro nil d'sfr.se- arising from IMPURE BLOOD, bUCH AS Rheumatism, Kidney Disorder, Liver Complaint, Sick and Nerv ous Headache, Neuralgia, Dvs . pepsla, Fever and Ague, Scrofu la, Female Complaints, Erysipe las, Nervous Aitecttons, i.ntarrli, and all sypnumc uiscases.

Before Judge McClure In court room No. 3 a trespass suft was In progress during the day. It was that of Mrs. Jemima Davis against the People s Street Railway company, of-Luzerne county, for damages In the sum of $10,000. Attorney Charles-L.' Hawley was counsel for the plaintiff and At torneys ex-Judge Jessup and Horace E. Hand for the defendant. On Sept. 13, 1S92, which was a rainy day; Mrs. Davis got aboard of a Green Ridge car in the central city intending to ride to her home on Capouse ave nue. It is alleged that when the car got to the corner of Penn avenue and Mulberry street and began to descend the Incline toward the Dickson works that the motorman lost control of It and the car sped along with runaway speed. At the Intersection of Penn ave nue and Olive street It collided with another car and Mrs. Davis alleges to have been thrown vollently to the street, sustaining injuries to her, knee and elbow which became permanent and caused her pain and the loss of the use of her arm and leg In the ordi nary care of her household duties. This was the substance of her case and the defendant company placed on the stand Din. W. K. Allen, J. J. Sullivan and Lackey, who testllled that the disable ment of which Mrs. Davis complains did not arise from the Injury received but from rheumatic pains or the chalky growths In the Joints. The case was not finished at adjournment. Judge Archbald In court room No. 2 presided and the greater part of the day was consumed with the suit of O. A. Halford against William U. Williams and S. D. Mayer. Attorney E. C. New- comb appeared for the plaintiff and At torneys Major Everett Warren and John It. Jones for the defendant. The plaintiff is a ruck driller and takes con tracts for boring holes with diamond drills. The defendants engaged him to sink a bore hole in a part of the West Mountain off from Peckvllle and agreed to pay him at the rate of $1.75 a foot. They made a contract with him that the depth of the hole should be regulated by the finding of conglomerate rock. He sunk it to a depth of 146 feet and alleges to have struck conglomerate rook. Then he packed up his belongings and went to execute another contract. f hen the defendants examined the hole they found It Was not driver, to' the depth as agreed to and they offered the contrac tor $4 a foot to sink it to their satisfac tion. He refused, as he had another Job, and they refused to pay him for any of the work us he had not fulfilled his contract. The case will go to the Jury today. i:erhart Ijectmcnt Suit. From the day before the ejectment suit before Judge Archbald was re sumed yesterday morning. This is the case where James M. Everhart is suing to dispossess the defendants, G. F. Nes bitt and G. Mortimer Lewis, from thirty-six acres of land In Ransom town 'shlp. When all of the testimony of the plaintiff was heard Attorney E. N. Wil lard, for the defendant, moved for a compulsory non-suit for the reason that the plaintiff failed to connect the as sessment against the land In dispute with the treasurer's sale which was made by virtue of the defaulting of pay ment of the taxes on the land through that assessment. Judge Archbald heard the argument of both sides and after a short deliberation granted the non-suit. In the morning after the foregoing case was disposed of an appeal suit was opened before Judge Archbald, that of Cleland, Simpson & Taylor against Henry Battin & Son. It was a book ac count and occupied very little of the court's attention. The plaintiffs offered the account showing a debt of $231.25 ml the defendant offered no testimony, The Jury retired and In a little while brought In a verdict In favor of the plaintiff for the , full amount of the lulm. Two other cases were called for trial before Judge Archbald. Tho first was that of William Davis against the New York and Scranton Coal company, ap peal. Counsel for the plaintiff asked for a continuance and on motion of At torney Thomas T. Wells the case was non-suited on the ground that when it was regularly called up for trial In its proper order the plaintiff was not ready to proceed and no proper- reason or cause was adduced for a postponement or continuance. jne same disposition for the same reason was made of the appeal suit of Michael Dee against the same company. In the case of Oustav Zlmmer against Frank Passek the Jury found a verdict of Judgment for $4.50 in favor of the plaintiff. THANKSGIVING SERVICES.

FIGHTING FOR LIFE. SUFFERING WOMAN TESTIFIES Mrs. Henrietta Button, of Janvier, N. J., writes: "For a long time I suffered rrom a disordered stomach. My appe tlte was gone and what little I ate dls tressed me terribly. My health failed rapidly. I became very weak and feared I should never be well. After readln your uuiue to iieaitn, I was encour aged to try Munyon's Dyspepsia Cure, lis ucuon was bo prompt mat I soon felt like a new woman, and am now completely cured."

It Receives the Official Endorsement of Eminent Experts and a Jury - of Representative Qitizens. The suit brought by Ohio's food com missioner against a Cincinnati drug gist for selling Paskola on the ground that it was nothing but glucose, result ed In a great victory fur Paskola and a verdict against the state. During the course of the trial Pro fessor Shaller, of the University of Cin cinnati, testified that Paskola was not glucose, and even If It was, it would be harmless. He also bore witness to its activity as a digestive agent. Professor William DIckore, of the Miami college, testified to the same facts. So did Professor Schmidt, the chemist of the board of health; Prof-es-soiWllllam Hoffman and others. A practical test was made In court, showing the digestive action of Pas kola on eggs and meats of various kinds, whereas glucose under precisely the same conditions produced no effect whatever. This test but confirmed the experts' statements that proved Paskola to be of great value In Indigestion and wast ing diseases. This verdict disposes of the malicious attack that has been made against Pas kola by Interested rivals, and suits have now been brought against the proprie tors of a well known emulsion of cod liver oil for having given wide circula tion to a false formula and other mis representations regarding It. The animus of this attack will be the better understood when It Is stated that Paskola Is being largely used In the place of cod liver oil. IN LOCAL THEATERS. Southern life possesses an unfailing Interest as a dramatic study and the melo-drama, "Kentuck," whose theme Is largely that of life In the sunny state, which give It It's name, will undoubt edly appeal to a large proportion of the patrons of the Frothlngham. Among the performers are two run ning horses that figure In the exciting horse race- sen, which forms the strong point of the second act. This beautiful drama will be seen at the Frothlngham tonight. !l II II Tomorrow afternoon and evening Joseph Jefferson will present his best known creation, "Rip Van Winkle," at the Frothlngham. He will be sup ported by a fine company. One of Jef ferson's early experiences was pf being stranded In Matamoras, Mexico, in 1848, during the war. After the soldiers hud gone the gamblers remained, and he conceived the Idea of opening a Cake and coffee Aland In their Interest. Mr. Jefferson had a pardner, a stranded actor like himself, and their stock In trade consisted of a tin coffee can und bt neath it an alcohol lamp; a dozen old cups and saucers, a corresponding number of shining spoons, a fat sugar bowl and an attenuated milk pitcher. The business flourished, but the asso ciations were so uncongenial that Mr. Jefferson and his partner sold out and took passage In a government boat to Brazos, Santiago, and then boarded a brig bound for New Orleans. II II II : The champion feather weight of the world, George Dixon, and a clever vaudeville and specialty company will be the attraction nt the Academy of Music on Thanksgiving afternoon and evening. Harry Woods, of this city, will meet Mr. Dixon at the evening performance in a three round exhibition of boxing. An exchange has the fol lowing to say regarding the perform ance: The entertainment opened with a bright comedy sketch by Haynes and Redmond, whose bright sayings and songs kept the audience amused. Nel lie Seymour delighted all present with her singing, and was favored with several recalls. The Tanakas gave a wonderful exhibition of Japanese top spinning and Juggling. The Wood sis ters sang several uuets. They are among the best descriptive singers In the business. Bentley and Greve con tributed a clever musical act, full of good comedy work and catchy mu sical selections. Herbert and Oarin gave an acrobatic exhibition which won for them much applause. Murphy and. Mc Coy created a sensation with their cy clonic knockabout act and burlesaue boxing. They kept the audience con vulsed with laughter. Kitty Nelson de lighted all present with her songs and dances. Her dancing made a hit. As living pictures are at present In great vogue In the metropolis, Mana- ger Eugene Robinson, who this season presents an entirely new version of his most popular success, to wit, "Paul Kuuvar," says with some, degre 'of pride that the celebrated dream scene in the second act of "The New Paul Kauvar" will In point of Impressive ness of scene, dress and grouping, sur pass anythlng'ever attempted even by the famous "KllyanI," and feels cer tain that this effort on his part will meet with unqualified approval by the great number of lovers of the clean and legitimate drama, which comes to the Academy of Music on Friday evening. II II II Who that has ever seen the Qormans can forget George Gorman's portrayal of the Irish character. His Owen Gllhooly In their new comedy, "The Gllhoolys Abroad," Is Bald to be the hit of his life. The company will a- pear here next Saturday evening nt the Academy of Music. II II II Sherman and Morlsey's comedians, which opens at Davis' theater Thurs day, offers to the patrons a bill of rare excellence. Prominent In their list of entertainers Is Mile. Delmore, in her wonderful serpentine dance, Introduc ing beautiful calcium and stereoptlcan effects. Also Sherman and Mortsey, the kings "of comic acrobats, whose specialty Is original and very laughable. Emery and. Marlow In their side-split-ting comedy; John Patten, the brothers AncollettI, four emperors of music; the Punchinellos, Carr and Ingram and others too numerous to mention.

THIS STATEMENT IS UNTRUE He Lost tho Battle with Clunan Hocauso lie Was Not So Good a Fighter Foot Hull Game at the Park Thanks giving Afternoon. Anybody who saw the bout between John Clunan, of Brooklyn, and Joe Wellschek, of Philadelphia, at the re cent tournament of the Excelsior Ath letic club at Music hall can easily affirm that Clunan Is by long odds the better man of the two. On the first night Clunan fought with Harry Woods, of this city, a light weight whose cleverness has been the cause of trying to match him against George Dixon, the colored champion who appears at the Academy of Music tomorrow afternoon und evening. Clu nan was so far the superior fighter of the two that the groans of the specta tors were long and loud at the utter in ability of Woods to make a respectable showing. On the second night Clunan went against Wellschek and defeated him ac cording to the Judgment of the referee and the unanimous expression of sen timent of the spectators. Wellschek went ofi the stage In the sulks, and when he went home he told stories that created Impressions such as are con 'tained In the following clipping from Sunday's Philadelphia Item "I What the Item Says. Joe Wellschek, the well-known amateur boxer, Is back from Scranton, where he went to contest in un amateur boxlni; tourney held under the auspices of the Kxeol.slor Athletic club. Joe says that of all the skin deals he ever saw this one was the worst. He claims to have fairly and squarely won the competition by defeat ing John Clunan, of Brooklyn, but de spite the fact that he not only out-pointed but battered dunlin's face to pieces, the referee, who was a New Yorker, gave the decision to Chilian. Wellschek sayB Clunan went home with both eyes nearly closed and battered up generally, lie also says he has done with Scranton and he will never compete there again. When Wellschek came on the stage he was greeted with loud cheering and Clunan was put off with a few miser able attempts at applause. But when the fight had ended and the decision of the referee was announcd everybody present said it was a square deal, al though Wellschek was the favorite. He should have taken his medicine, but doing the baby act will nut win him any laurels. Tomorrow's I'oot Hull tiamo. Lovers, of foot ball will have an op portunlty to witness an exciting game of that cold weather sport at the ball park Thnnksgivlng afternoon. It will also probably be the last foot ball game of any Importance played In the city this year. The elevens that will contest are Wyoming seminary and Scranton. Manager Cuhlll says his men are In fine shape for the final struggle, but it Is not likely they will have anything bordering on a walk-over, as the Wyo ming seminary boys are putting up a decidedly gilt-edged article of foot ball Just now. Nubs of Sporting News. Thomas Dooil and Thomas Keed will pitch a game of quoits for u purse of JUKI at Layborrls' court, Providence, Thanks giving Duy. Frank Craig, "The Harlem Coffee Cool er," who is now ,ln London, says he Is willing to tight Peter Jackson ten or twenty rounds at the National Sporting club.

Dlckerman, owner of the fast stallion Bellini, by Artillery, says that his horse will be on the track again next sea son, and, he expects, will take a record of 2.08 or better. George Dixon, the champion feather weight of the world, will appear at the Academy of Music Thanksgiving even ing In a four-round sparring bout with Hurry Woods, of this city. Representatives from hulf a dozen cities met at Nushvllle, Tenn., Monday for the purpose of organizing the Central Base Baft ileague.

The Madison county (111.) grand Jury has returned Indictments against a num ber of St. Louis sports and many of those Interested in the Mudlson Athletic cluli.
