BEFORE BREAKFAST. I
The Pe Ell Examiner, printed at Ie
Ell, Washington, has the following
complimentary notice of Attorney II.
W. B. Ilewen, formerly a member of
the Lackawanna bar:
While In Chehalls last week tho edi
tor of the Examiner met a friend who
had recently talked with a prominent
San Francisco attorney, once a resident
of Astoria. In discussing some of tho
leading- men of Southwestern Washing
ton, the Sun Francisco lawyer Inquired
about H. W. p. Hewen, of South Bend,
who will be remembered as the Itepub
llcan candidate for Superior judge of
this district last fall. He said that ho
had met Mr. Ilewen frequently, nnd
knew something of tho energy and
ability which he Is applying to the
practice of his profession. Ho spoke
in the most nattering terms of Mr.
Hewen. "I am well acquainted with
the lawyers of Washington," ho said,
"and though Mr. Ilewen Is a man who
never practices law with a flourish of
trumpets, and Is not much given to
advertising himself In the newspapers.
ho Is undoubtedly one of tho most
promising young men of tho Washing
ton bar. I have frequently been sur
prised at the profound knowledge of
legal matters that he has acquired. I
am of the opinion that there are not
nvo better lawyers than this young
man in the state of Washington. He
would grace the Supreme bench of tho
fitatc, ana I shall not bo surprised to
'see him occupying such a place before
.lie is nrty years old."
I Mr. Hewen practiced law In Scran
Ion about ten years ago and had an
bfllce with Gardner, Hulslander and
vosburg on Lackawanna avenue. While
In Scranton ho was numbered among
the best read and keenest wltted of
the younger attorneys nnd has many
friends In the city who will bo pleased
to learn that ho Is still progressing in
his chosen calling.

WINFIELD WAS
A GREAT CATCH
Young Man Arrested In Coal Exchange
Is Now In Jail.
CONFESSED TO TWO BURGLARIES
Entered Architect Duckworth's Ofllco
nnd Stole Drawing Instruments;
Also Took Cigars from Keogh's
Fool Hooni--Wns Sinking n Third
Attempt When lie Wns Detected.
At tho Hearing Held Under 91,500
Ilnll.
Maurice J. Wlnfleld, the young mnn
whoso arrest In the Coal Exchange
building at 2.30 o'clock yesterday morn
ing was exclusively reported In yester
day's Tribune, Is now In the county
Jail In default of 1,500 ball on a charge
of burglary. He confessed to the re
cent burglary of Architect Duckworth's
olllco nnd tho stolen goods have been
returned; Wlnllold also acknowledged
to have burglarized Jerome Keogh's
pool room, on Lackawanna avenue.
For these offenses and the entrance to
E. A. Shifter's ofllce yesterday, Wln
fleld was held in J500 ball each by
Mayor Bailey at tho hearing.
AVInfleld Is a very clever young man.
He came here last June from Lead
vllle, Colorado, where his father Is n
reputable citizen. The young man is
a civil engineer, having followed his
father's ocupatlon, and when he struck
Scranton had little trouble in securing
employment In George Lelghton's ofllco
on the second floor of the ConI Ex
change building. He gave a hard-luck
story nnd through tho kindnes of his
employer the young man was given a
key to the ofllco and allowed to sleep
there.
Thus he was plnced where he could
strike from the Inside. A few weeks
ago the Duckworth ofllce was entered
and drawing instruments to the value
of several hundred dollars were stolen.
Miller & Pock's china store on the
ground floor was entered on the same
night and $7.73 In money taken. The
manner of tho robberies showed that
some one familiar with the premises
had done the work. Wlnlleld was not
suspected, however. His actions did
not warrant the slightest suspicion.
ANOTHER JOB.
Last Wednesday night Jerome
Keogh's pool room was burglarized.
Eight boxes of cigars and seven or
eight dollnrs In money were taken. The
theft wns the work of some one from
the Inside, although an attempt to
ward off suspicion had been made by
loosening the bolt from the outside.
Tho police say that the Keogh burg
lary was traced to Wlnfleld and that
a warrant was to have been sworn nut
yesterday for his arrest. The coup by
Patrolmen John Thomas and John
Saltry yesterday morning cleared up
the mystery In a better way than an
ticipated. Patrolman Thomas, who patrols the
Wyoming avenue beat, has been par
ticularly watchful of the Coal Ex
change building during all the week.
He, In truth, spent most of his time In
tho building and no person entered the
place without being stopped nnd ques
tioned. At 2 o'clock yesterday morn
ing a light was noticed in the npart
ments of E. A. Shifter, on the second
floor. This light had not been burn
ing earlier In the night nnd Patrolman
Thomas at once reported tho fact to
Captain Richard Edwards, who Is in
charge ot the night force this week.
He was ndvlsed to Inform Patrolman
Saltry and together an Investigation
was made.
Two Tribune reporters, who were
standing on tho opposite side of the
avenue, saw tho patrolmen enter tho
building and. It seemed, the policemen
had Just started up tho stairs when
he light in Shifter's establishment was
extinguished. The reporters nt once
informed Patrolmen Thomas and Saltry
of the unusual happening.
The door to Shifter's olllco was found
locked. For fully twenty minutes the
patrolmen knocked nnd threatened nnd
Anally a young man came to the door
and said: "Hold on there; what the
h are you fellows doing!" He opened
tho door nnd wns nt once grabbed and
handcuffed. Patrolman Thomas' re
volver was drawn.
IX THE VALISE.
After Wlnfleld. for such was tho
name given, had secured his coat, tie,
collar and shoes fiom Lelghton's ofllce,
where ho slept, ho was taken to the
police station. A valise which was
found In the room was the only article
disturbed. Upon examination by Desk
Sergeant Robert Delter this was found
to contain the Instruments taken from
Architect Duckworth's olllco.
Yesterday mornlngWlnfleld confessed
everything. The key to the Lelghton
ofllce fitted the lock in Shlffer's door.
He wns after money. Ho entered the
Duckworth ofllce several weeks 'ago In
tho same manner. Wlnfleld stated
that he burglarized Keogh's place by
hiding in the room until every other
person had departed. When taken be
fore Mavor Bailey the prisoner broke
down and cried hysterically. He per
blsts In saying that he had an accom
plice In his work.
The police aro looking for the second
party. The arrest of Wlnfleld reflects
particular credit upon Patrolman
Thomas, whose tireless vigilance
brought It about.

Women Know by Ftnctlcnl Experi
ence Thnt It Is Easy to I)yo Willi
Diamond Dyes.
It's tho easiest matter In the world to
dye with Diamond Dyes, as thousands
ot women know from practical experi
ence. By using these simple home
dyes, one can make old clothing look
llko new and save a grent ihany dol
lars In the course of a year.
Do not accept Imitations of the orig
inal Diamond Dyes from any dealer,
no matter how strongly ho may recom
mend them, for while he can mako a
larger profit on them they do not dyo
as much nt the Diamond, nor equal
them In fastness of colors. When poor
dyes nro used, both, your money and
labor are thrown away and the goods
are spoiled forever. Uso the Diamond
Dyes only nnd get results that are
equal to those of the professional dyer.

fealty to party counts. Let all such
bestir themselves now.
VERY ATTRACTIVE DISPLAY.
Millar & Feck's J.nmp Exhibition Is
Well Worth n Visit.
Ono could hardly ask a prettier eight
than that displayed In Millar & Peck's
china hall yesterday on the occnslon
of the opening of their special lamp
sale. Hundreds of lamps In endless
variety from the ordlnnry kitchen af
fair to the hundred-dollar hand-painted
parlor lamp were exhibited In tasteful
array, and during the day and eve
ning were viewed by crowds of delight
ed visitors.
Tho window display halts nlmost ev
ery passerby, nnd with their atten
tion thus attracted to the dazzling
splendor of the Interior exhibition few
Indeed pass on without entering.
In the evening when the more beau
tiful lamps aie kept burning the dis
play Is especially attractive. The ex
hibition lasts until Monday. The firm
claims that a larger or more varied
display of lamps cannot be found any
where In the country.
FIGURATIVE BOLTS AND BARS.
Young Olvphnnt Collide Trying Hnrd
to tJivo Tli cm the Laugh.
William Schenek nnd Anna Eustln,
aged respectively eighteen nnd sixteen
years, want to be married. Fate, how
ever, seems to be detnrmlncv' that they
will have to bldo their time.
Opposing parents are tho cause of all
the trouble. They thought to sur
mount the obstacle by running away,
but as they were boarding a Delaware,
Lackawanna and Western train for the
land of the flee and easy marnuge
laws Jeisey they were overtaken by
tho lad's step-mother and maishaled
back to Olvphnnt.
Various threats on the part of the
young couple finally Induced the yuun
man's patents to give their consent,
and yesloiday they enme to the court
house radiant with Joy and full of the
pleasantcst anticipations. Woe wns
theirs again, for the consent ot the pn
rents was not In evidence nnd the ctuel
Mr. Mlrtz, who presides over the mar
riage license docket, turned them away.
Undaunted they started out to secure
the written consent of their respective
paients nnd vowed they would be bac
on the morrow.

At Monday night's regular monthly

WILKES-BARRE IS
A TRIFLE FRESH
That's Wliat the Scranton Poor Direc
tors Think, Anyhow.
CRITICISM FOR FAVORS RECEIVED
Scrnnton Accommodates tho Central
Poor District of Ltuoruo by Caring
for Twenty-llvo of Its Insnno Ench
Month nt Cost Itntcs nnd tho Wilkes
llnrro Directors Crumble About It.
Now tho LntterAroto Ito Asked to
Explain or Cnro lor Their Own
Insane.
Tho directors of the .Scranton Poor
district nre tired of doing favors for
the Central Poor district of Luzerne
county and getting in return criticism
of county asylum methods. The Scran
ten district gets $1.75 per week for
maintenance of WJlkes-Barre's insane
confined In tho Hillside Homo but tho
Scranton dlractors prefer that Wllkes
Barre should do Its own care-taking or
cease to criticise.
Such is the situation as revealed at
yesterday's meeting of the directors of
the Scranton Poor district In their
rooms In the city hall. Members Ful
ler, Shotton, Murphy, Terppo and
Paine were present. In the nbsenco of
Mr. Lnngstnff, tho president, Dr. Paine
was chosen to preside.
The Wllkes-Barro matter started
with Dr. Paint's suggestion that It
was time to regulate th'o reception of
Wllkes-Barre's Insane at tho Homo
where an average of 23 from Luzerne
county aro Inmates during each month.
Mr. FulUr stated that two Wllkes
Barre directors c.t the recent state
convention of poor and charity direc
tors In this cltv liad misrepresented
the Scranton district and Its asylum.
If their statements Indicated the gen
eral sntlment of the Luzerne district
It was time, Mr. Fuller said, for the
board to take action and decline to ac
commodate people who did not appre
ciate. EXPLAXATIOX WANTED.
Secretary Lynett was directed.on mo
tion of Mr. Shotton, to correspond with
the Central LiiHTne directors and ask
for an explanation.
The trouble is traceable to the differ
ence of opinion between the two board.;
ns to county or state care of the In
sane. At the convention this week it
was the consensus of opinion that
Pennsylvania should adopt the Wiscon
sin plan of county asylums for the
Insane. It was agreed-, however, that
this plan was not wanted unless cre
ated by n state net and not special
legislation, ns in the former case each
county would have Its asylum nnd tho
wh'ole would bo under state supervi
sion. At present counties pay $1.D0 per
week p r inmate for the care of their
insane In state asylums, while the state
pavs $1.73 per wek per inmate in
county asylums, a difference of $3.23
In favor of counties like Lackawanna
which have their asylums.
Lu7ern(? county, and Its Central dis
trict In particular, has for years been
'plugiTlng" for tho locating within Its
borders of a state Insane Institution for
the northeastern part of the common
wealth. While Luzerne has been plug
ging It has had to iay $1.75 per wool:
for the care of each of Its insane in
Danville, Hillside Home and other in
stitutions outside Luzerne county and
l frequently obliged to confine its
subjects in the Luzern.'1 county Jail un
til a nlnee can be found for them.
Meanwhile the other counties of tho
rtate are almo3t without exception
drifting toward tho countyasylum plan
of Wisconsin, lu which stale there is
not an ov rcrowded insane institution.
HOSPITAL CHARGES.
Mr. Fuller entered a protest against
the district paying for patients at hos
pitals whlcli are beneficiaries of state
appropilatlons. Ills, motion, seconded
by Mr. Terppe, provided that nn direc
tor should clvc an order on a hospital
of thnt kind for a patient whose main
tenance Is charged against tho district.
