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

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
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
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

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
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
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
Grout i nion .Meeting at Penn Avenue
Church Thursday Morning.

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
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.
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.

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.
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.
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

hit of his life. The company will a-

Anybody who saw the bout between

Wellschek, of Philadelphia, at the re

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

cause of trying to match him against

who appears at the Academy of Music

the two that the groans of the specta
tors were long and loud at the utter in

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.
