SOME WITNESSES WERE ABSENT lint There Were Soma Preset aad They Told Scraps of Conversation Which They Allege They Heard. Fight Over the Admittance of Tes liaioay aad the L'sual Wrangle liver the Scope of the Investigation. Non-atten llng witnesses again made the conclusion of the Kinsley Investiga tion an indefinite quantity. It was hoped to llnish up the Sunday World side of the case last night, but the fail ure of two or three witnesses to answer the subpoena precluded the possibility of this. As has happened every night so far, there was a wrangle over the scope of the inquiry. Last night it arose over the introduction of the testimony of Thomas Hennlgan. Mr. Newcomb started out by asking the witness if he had ever heard Emmet Peet sny any thing about the ownership of the team he drove. Mr. Hums objected on the grounds that Peet himself had been on the stand and was as tir as was known a competent witness. Peets declara tions should not come second-handed. Mr. Newcomb stated It was his inten tion to show by the witness thut Peet had not told the whole truth. Mr. Wat son raised a second objection that this would be an Infringement of one of the best established rules of evidence, that is. a party cannot descredlt the testi mony of his own witness. Mr. New comb held that there were no parties in this investigation; that It Is not a triul. and that he was not there as a prosecutor or the representative of prosecutors, but simply as a represent ative of the World people, whi, through the gi-nciousness of the mayor, had been permitted to have counsel present in order to show that their charges had foundation in fact. There Is no such thing ns "one's own witness" In these proceedings, Mr. Newcomb continued. After a consultation with the mem bers of the committee the mayor direct ed Hennlgan to nnswer the question. WHAT HENNIGAN HEARD. Hennlgan had two conversations with Peet during September. Peet's horse ran away one night on West Lncka wnna avenue, and ran down the old Love roud. When t! e norse was caught and brought back Peet said: "The old man will give me Sam Hill for breaking this bridle." Another night Peet re fused to pull the whole length of the street-washing hose up a hill because he said Mr. Kinsley wouldn't want him to use his (Mr. Kinsley's) horses that way. Hy "the old man" was meant Mr. Kinsley, who was thus dubbed by the street commissioner's gang, the witness said. John T. Jones, of 323 Evans court worked on the street gang during the full and winter of 1X95 and the spring of 1XH6. He knew Emmet Peet and saw him driving Mr. Kinsley's family carriage quite as often as he saw him driving a working team on the streets. He also knew Jake Hetcher and knew that he drove a team on the street gang. Witness could not say who owned the team Betcher drove. He had heard Hetcher say that he went to Kinsley's barn to get the team every dav. Witness was set to work "elearlng up" around the Frothlngham theater by Foreman George Perlgo. He heard Perigo say one time last winter in the hnllway of the municipal building base ment 'that there were free tickets con cerned. On cross-examination he said he saw Peet driving Mr. Klnsley'a carrluge one day In front of the Globe Btore and at another time in front of Goldsmith's Bazaar. Witness left the street depart ment on the 8th of August, 1896. "COAR DIDN'T DIVVY." Thomas Coar, of 220 Emmet street, was also on the stand. He worked for the city In the capacity of teamster at different times during the past two years. He kept no account of the peri ods he worked on the city streets. He knew George Perigo, the foreman of the street commissioner's department, but denied that he ever paid Perigo money for employed. He denied that he ever told Dr. Reedy or Frank Mawn that he got work from Perigo and "divvied" up with Perigo. He admit ted having worked on the grounds of the Country club last October, but could not give the number of days. He had a talk with Georffe Perigo yester day morning. To Mr. Newcomb's ques tion, "Does your poor memory date from this talk with Mr. Perigo?" he answered "It certainly does." Mr. Hums, however, In cross-examination, elicited the fact that the witness did not understand Mr. Newcomb's ques tion. Mr. Newcomb said he had ransacked the directories and assessment books, but could find no such person ns Eu gene Kinehart, whom Harry Kinsley mentioned as one of his drivers. Street Commissioner Kinsley, In reply to Mr. Newcomb's Inquiry, answered that Kinehart was still about the city and had been seen this week. To the bent of Mr. Kinsley's opinion, Kinehart is working in some livery stable here abouts. BETCHER WAS RECALLED. Jacob Hetcher was recalled, and In answer to Mr. Newcomb's question as to whether or not he was positive he never drove a team for the city prior to Sept. 5. 1S95, said he might have helped a driver or taken the place of one who would be taken sick. He could not tell positively whether or nut he drove a team prior to Sept. 5, 1N95. He might have driven one of Kinsley's teams in October, IROr., for a day or two, but not more than that. He could not remember whether or not he drove a team in November, December or any succeeding month. His memory, he said, was bad. He had not talked with Perigo or Kinsley of anybody else about the Investigation since It began. Mr. Newcomb at this Juncture an nounced that owing to the non-attendance of James Ryan and one or two other witnesses, he could proceed no further. He asked for an attachment for Ryan, saying that It had come to his cars that Ryan had stated that he "would be d If he would go there and testify against Kinsley." Adjournment was made until next Saturday night. SPROATS CASE UNSETTLED. Fire Department Committee Again Fails to Reach n Conclusion. Permanent Fireman Sproats, late of the Franklin company, who has been suspended by Mayor Ralley, will con tinue to draw pay Indefinitely from the city If Inst night's secret meeting of the Are department committee of select council is nny criterion. The committee Intended considering the Sproats case along with other business, but did nothing beyond discussing the matter. It was claimed by the committee that the mayor was to have presented In writing the specific charges which led to the suspension and the mayor's rec ommendation that he be dismissed. The charges were not presented either in writing or verbally, and It Is not likely that the report of the commit tee to councils tonight will contain any reference to the matter. The committee met In the private of fice of the city clerk. Proposals were presented as follows for building a wagon patterned after those of the Rrooklyn fire department for Chief Hlckey: A. R. Gould & Sons, 1200, -year guarantee, lamp and all equip ments and furnishings; William Blume & Son. $185, with full equipment; Con rad Pell, (175. 2-year guarantee, with full equipment and furnishings; J. F. McCawley tt Bro.. $165, with equipment, or 1190. with lamp, whip, blanket, gong, etc.; William K. Gilhool. 1160. with equipment. The equipment refers to gong, lamp, etc., and the furnishings, to the whip, blankets, etc. Other bids were received, but were not considered on account of the absence of the re quired forfeit. FOXY LADS, THESE. Try to Uel Kailread Fare from the Treatary of Jersey City. Tuesday evening's New York World contained an account of the arrest In Jersey Cily of two runaway boys who gave their names as Grace, and stated that they had skipped from their home in Scranton. and came to Jersey City on a canal boat. The boys were aged respectively 11 and 13 years and when picked up had their school books with them. An Investigation prosecuted by the Jersey City police and Chief Robling, of this c'.ty, developed the fact thut the youngsters are residents of Jersey Citv, and had tuld the police a cock-and-bull story about runlng away from their home In Scranton in the hope that they would be sent on here, where thev have relatives whom they desired to visit. An uncle of the foxy lads lives on Ninth street, and It was through him that their little scheme was ex posed. HORSE THIEF ARRESTED. He Drove the Animal from Binghamton to This CityWanted to Part , with the Outfit for $18. About 9 o'clock last night a smooth faced, well dressed young man, 22 years old or thereabouts, walked Into the of fice of the Scranton Parcel Delivery company, nt Lackawanna and Wyom ing avenues, and desired information from the manager, H. V. O'Malley, about whether or not there was an auction sale of horses in this city every Thursday. He said he had a horse he wanted to sell cheap. Mr. O'Malley told him that the horse auctioneer is out of town this week, and when he learned that he wanted to s?ll the. horse the worst way to Mr. O'Malley. He was so persistent that he got Mr. O'MalUy to go to Riley Ed wards' stable to look at the animal. The beast was in a lather of sweat and had evidently been driven a long distance. It looked to be a good horse, a well shaped sorrel, and the carriage wns a good one. So was the harness. The carriage has a rubber top and nad a red running gear. He offered to sell the entire outfit for $20 and reduced his price to $18. The reason he was willing to part with such valuable property tor a trifle he ex plained by representing that he went about from place to place selling car riage oil and was In the habit of selling his horse every fall. He had not had a successful season and was very anxious to get enough to bring him back home to Boston. Mr. O'Malley told him to be around to the office In the morning, and he left him to get a policeman. The first offi cer he met was Patrolman Lona Day, and they walked on a block and met Lieutenant John Davis. When the three went back to the stable, the young man was seated outside on the steps and he was placed under arrest. He is now in the central police sta tion. In the buggy was found a bag marked Binghamton, and when the offi cers charged him with the theft, he broke down and acknowledged It, but refused to give his name, saying that if he was going to suffer his folks would be none the wiser and' he would not have them share his disgrace. He admitted that he hired the outfit at a livery near the Delaware, Lacka wanna and Western station In Bing hamton yesterday morning and drove to this city, making only enough stops to feed the horse so that It could make the journey. IT WOULD BREAK UP THE SHOW. Answer Givea by the Chief of Police of Rending. The chief of police of Reading is evi dently a bird, to use the vernacular of the dav. On Tuesday Chief Robling sent a tel egram to him and Instructed him to take charge of Stanford Engle, the boy who was taken away by ex-Special Of ficer R. O. Bryant, who Is traveling around small towns In the interior giv ing hypnotic exhibitions. The boy's mother Is worried almost to death about him. Bryant opens his show in a town, puts the boy to sleep for two or three days, during which he sleeps In the window of some store. The strain is wearing him away. Chief Kobllng telegraphed to the chief at Readins, where Bryant now is, to take the boy In charge and he would send an olllcer down to bring the lad home. The Reading copper answered back that it would Interfere with the show to make the arrest. NARROWLY ESCAPED DEATH. Driver Boy McDonnell Merioutlv In ii red in Nny Aug Mine. A 15-yenr-old driver boy, named John McDonnell, sustained serious Injuries and narrowly escnped death yesterday afternoon in the Nay Aug mine at Dun more. He was riding on a "trip" of loaded cars toward the mouth of the slope and In pnsslns a row of empty cars his legs were caught and he was pulled from Ids seat. The space was narrow er than his bod:' nnd he was forced along for quite a distance between the loaded and empty cars before the cars could be stopped. One of his leirs were fractured and his hips and lower body painfully bruised. He wns taken to his parents' home, on Duck street, where he re ceived medical attention. Watch for the White Wagons.

COLORED BOY SHOT WITH A MUSKET Hit Left Were Riddled So That Oae of Then Had to Be Aapataled. OUN WAS FIRED BY A COMPANION Injured Boy Is a Son of Head Waiter Marshall at the Wyoming Home. The One Who Shot Him Is a Boot black at the WestministerThey Were ning lluntinglt Occurred on West Lackaw anna Aveonc. Baxter Marshall, colored, the 19-year-old son of Randall A. Marshall, head waiter at the Wyoming house, was shot in the legs at 8.10 yesterday morning on West Lackawanna ave nue at the Intersection of Seventh street, by John Morgan, another col ored boy, a year his junior. The shot was from an old musket loaded with large buckshot, and It pulverized the knee bone of the right leg so thut am putation had to be performed an Inch above the Joint. Less of the charge en tered the other log. but It lacerated the flesh very seriously and the operation In removing the grains from the tlesh wns 'painful end tedious. From all accounts the wounding was accidental, but as quick as the gun went off and Marshall dropped bleed ing and fainting on the sidewalk, Mor gan took to his heels up Seventh street toward Robinson's brewery, and over the Love road until he came to Carbon street bridge, which he crossed onto the Delaware and Hudson tracks. A freight train happened to be passing and he boarded it for Carbondaie. Chief of Police McAndrew of that city, arrested him in the railroad yard there at noon and locked him up. A tele phone message was sent to Chief Kob llng and he went to Carbondaie on the 2.2H train, brought him down at 4.30. and took him before Alderman Millar for a hearing. He was charged with the felonious wounding of Marshall. STORY OF MORGAN. Alderman Millar put him under oath and told him to tell his story of the shooting. He said that he and the wounded young man were chums and they started yesterday morning on a hunting trip to Bloomsburg. They nad with them army muskets and both were loaded. They wqie walking across West Lackawanna avenue, Intending to go down Seventh street to tho rail road yard. Marshall was walking a few steps ahead of him and was eating an apple. Morgan asked him for a piece of It and was refused. He made a spring forward to snatch the apple from Mar shall's hand, nnd ns he was doing so the trigger of the gun caught In his cont and exploded the charge. The barrel was pointed at the other's legs. As soon as he saw what he had done, he was so overcome with fear that he ran away as fast a he could. The alderman asked him why he ran away If he had not meant to do the Bhootlng, and he repeated that it was fear drove him away. As to his occu pation he said he Is a bootblack and works at the Westminster. He came here from Toronto, Can., five years ago after the death of his parents. CAPTURED AT CARBONDALE. Chief Robllnn was sworn and testi fied to being notified of a shooting on West Lackawanna avenue. He started out at once to run the one that did tt down. Officers were sent In various di rections to hunt the man and they tracked him as far as the Delawnre and Hudson railroad. The chief sent a message to Chief McAndrew to be on the lookout for a colored man, and at noon the Carbondaie chief sent down word thnt the man was in custody there. Chief Robling went up and got him. The alderman committed Mor gan to the county Jail In default of $$00 bail. The wounded youth made a statement at the hospital In which ne gave as his opinion that the shooting was acciden tal. After he fell some West Side citi zens who were riding on the rear plat form of a passing car, got off and tied a handkerchief around his thighs to stanch the How of blood. The Lacka wanna ambulance was sent for and soon arrived. His pain during the day was In tense. The operation was performed at 5 o'clock In the afternoon hy Drs. Connell, Blanchard and McGrath. The report from them Is that he is resting comfortably and the chances for his recovery are very good. SUPERBA AT THE FROTHINQHAIK. Ilanlon Bros. Urcnlest Spectacle Seen There Last Night. Hanlon Brothers have In years gone by brought some beautiful spectacles to this city, but In their new "Su perba" last night at the Frothlngham they quite surpassed what they have done in the past to entertain the pub lic. It was a marvel of cleverness, and even the blase Individual who had seen that sort of thing over and over again, stopped yawning after the first act, declared he was surprised and thereafter jrave his undivided atten tion to the stage. It's no use trying to describe "Su perba." It must be seen. There is a wilderness of scenery and the me chanical effects are so perfect and work so cleverly that one Is tempted to think that the Inanimate things thnt move about in such mysterious ways are endowed with life. At tho close of the second act "Superba" rides down to the foot lluJits In her "fairy vessel on a sea of roses," as the house bills expresses It. This scene Is one of the most beautiful every presented on a stage in this city by any such attrac tion. Besides the scenery and mechanical effects there are several very fetching ballets, living pictures of a bull fight and specialties by Miss Francis Hart ley, who is also seen In the role of "Superba;" the Bchrode Brothers, won derful acrobats; Blanche Seymour and Lowry Lambert. "Superba" will be repeated tonight. MORE FRUIT OF THE ELECTION. Restoration of Confidence C.ivcs Scranton Another Industry. On Dec. 10 an application will be made to Governor Hastings for a charter for the Scranton Foundry and Machine company. Those who are asking for the charter are Eugene Washer, Amos Wnsher, E. W. Bishop, Daniel Elsinger and Theodore V. Konecny. This industry, and it is practically a new one. Is due to the result of the re cent election. For some time Eugene Washer has run a small foundry near the Carter works at the northern city line. He was desirous of enlarging It and en gaging In the business more extensive ly, but feared to do so until the result of the election of Nov. .1 was made known. Immediately thereafter a company with the above named stock holder wns organized, and on Dec. 10 the governor will be asked to charter it The old sx factory on Green Ridge street has been leased, nnd the busi ness of the company will be carried on there. KNEW IT ALL RIGHT. Hut Couldn't (Jet It Out of His Fore head, Ho Maid. There were three applicants for nat uralization papers before Judge Arch bald yesterday. Thomas Clarke, of Archibald, a na tive of Ireland, and John Davis, of this city, a native of Wales, got through all right, but one Andrew Symack, of Blakely, whose natal place was Austria flunked In the examination. He could read and write but could not tell the difference between the government of Austria and the government of the United States, which proved to be a fat al lack of Intelligence. "I know what It Is. your honor," he said in fairly good English, "I've got It in my brains, but I can't I can't, you know what I mean can't get It out of my forehead." FUNERAL OF FATHER M'ANDREW.
