IMPORTANT
ARREST MADE
Ignaiz Rosinozvitch of
Duryea Accused of
Murder.
COMMITTED TO THE JAIL
It Is Alleged That the Accused Is
a Member of the Desperate Gang of
Outlaws Who Ate Held Responsi
ble for tho Death of Richard How
ell, tho Lehigh Valley Rrakemnu,
Who Was Killed in the Wieck nt
Bnbylon a Month Ago Tho Two
Leadcis of tho Gang Ate Now Be.
Ing Sought.
Ignnts Hosmuzv.lU.il, of Duryec, was
committed to the county Jail yesterday
by Alderman Millar, of this city, on a
chuigc of mm dor. Hosmozvltch wan
nucsted at Haibeitown Sutuiday by
County Detcetho Leyshon and was
detained In tho count v Jail until jes.
lei day when ho was f 01 molly arrested
on a chuigo of minder and committed
le the county Jill.
It is alleged th.it Hosmozv Itch Is Im
plicated In the deatli of HIchatel How
ell, of I'itlston, who was killed In 1
wieck on tho Lehigh Valley tntltoad
near liabjlon, about a month ago.
The wreck was supposed to have been
tho work of Ihc despeiatc outlaws who
for sonio time have lniesttd the vic
inity of Austin Heights In the south
ern poition of this cotinlv. The at
icst is a very Important one and is
the Hist step in tho direction of biing
Ing this despeinte band of criminals
to justice.
A swatm of peace olllcors and detec
tives1 have been w 01 King on the case
for some time nnd it is a li Unite to Mr.
Lejshon's cleverness ns a detective
that he is tho first pel son to secure
anything like tangible results
When seen by a Tribune man es
teulay he absolutely jefuscd to dis
cuss the matter or give any Idea ot
the ettength of the case against Hos
mozvltch. In his opinion tho time Is
not jet lipe for any dlsclosuies.
The accused is a small man of licice
aspect and he is said to bo one of the
leading members of tho gang that is
held lesnonslble for tho deatli of
Iiiakeman Howell. Two men who are
leputed to be leadcis of thu band of
outlaws are now being anxiously
sought for by the authoiltles and It 1h
piobable they will be in custody with
in a few days.
Hosmozvltch did not know until ics
terday the natuie of the chaige against
him. Ho Is evidently both game and
desperate, for if the unpleasant news
disturbed him he gave no Indication
of It.

NOT FIGHT CRAZY.
Scianton Did Not Go Wild Over the
Big Battle.
While the Inteust In the Hhuikoy
Coibett light was genei.il in Scian
ton jeateiduy It did not begin to un
pioach the heat and excitement occa
sioned by nnv of tho really big battles
of the last few jeais in which Coi-
bett has been one of the principals.
Jr. fact the intciest, such as It was,
was exticmelv common place.
Coibctt was picked fot a winner by
at least nine out of every ten poisons
In he l anion who iollow things pugil
istic but eveijbody was timid about
belting or else the odds were too shoit
to attract the foh.nkey element. Not
a l.n tv bet was made In this city, al
though ono of $1,000 to $750 was of
feied on Corbett bv John MeUlnlev In
the Gaiety theater after the fourth
tound had been fought.
The number of poisons who went
fiom heio to New Yoik for the ex
piess puipose of seeing the aigument
was eiy small. They piobably did not
numbei moio than ten. The vast mu
Joilty who stnjed at home and weio
anxious to know how the battle was
going, had oppoitunlty to gratify their
cuiloslty at any one of a half dozen
cafes and clubs whero bulletins were
lecelved or at the Gaiety theater wheio
the bulletins weie lend from the stage
dutlng a midnight pciformance given
especially for that puipose.
Tho crowd at the Gaiety was not
Inge It was a pronounced Coibctt
audience, and the announcement that
Sunrkey had won was lecelved In sil
ence. Manager Van Ostcn lead the 10-
tutns. During the fouith lountl he le
celved a eatd fiom John T McGlnley
stating he had $1,000 to put up against
$750 that Corbett would win the fight.
He did not leceive a taker. The news
of Heferce Kellv's decision bi ought
the pel l'oi mane e to a dose.
Jim Judge, Jack Skelly, John Shea
nnd Phil Kinsland were among the
Seiantonlaus at the lingslde. A search
In the audience might have levealed,
howovei, seveinl Scranton business
men and others who weie in New Yoik
on business nnd wandeied into the
Lenox club house by accident.
SECOND GONDOLIER NIGHT.
Another Laige and Tashionable Au
dience Delighted by the Opeia.
Last night's pioduction of the Gon
dolleis was witnessed bv an audience
which filled all the leseived seats in
tho theater und neaily all ot the gal
Iciy. As on tho opening night tho
personnel of the gatheilng icinescnt
ed Scrantun's best known people, upon
all of whom was imptessed tho fact
that the opeia was sung In something
much better than tho usual amateur
style. It Is that air of excellence and
smoothness which, moie than pcisonal
Intel est in the peifoimeis, has caused
the opeia to be lecelved with so much
fav 01
The ehoius divided the honoia with
the piinclpals last night and thu wholo
created such a good Impiesslon that
tho clamor for seats for this after-'
noon's and tonight's perfoimanco is
found to be beyond the capacity of the
l.ouse.
Childien undci 10 yeuis of age may
obtain reserved seats at CO cents in any
pait of the house for tho matinee per
fouuaneo this atteinoon. Tho sale of
seats for today's two performances
continues at Powell's music stoto, op
posite tho theater. Gallery tickets at
S3 cents aie for sale at the box ofllce.
YOUNG THIEF ARRESTED.
He Used Stolen Money to Buy a Re
volver and Caitridges.
Hoy May. an ll-je-ai-old boy who
lesldcs on the hill, was attested last
night foi the theft of a pocketbook con
taining money from a counter in Hex
fold's Jew oil y stoie on Lackawanna
avenue.
Quito a large ciowd was in the stoie
yistetda when a woman from out of
town and whose name could not bn
'eainecl icportcd that her nocketbook
ccntalnlng JO nnd a i.illioad ticket had
been ntolen from off the counter.
Young May, who had been in tho store,
was suspected. A description of him
was furnished lo tho police nnd ho was
attested by Patiolman Neuls on Wjo
mlng avenue last night.
When searched the boy's pockets re
vealed a icvolver, two boxes of cait
ridges and CO cents in small chnnsc.
lie admitted ills guilt, and said ho had
given $210 to another hoy who was
with him and who will bo ai tested this
iTiui nlng.
Mysteiious Death.
New York. Nov. l".' William Wlciz,
nged .15, wax found dead today In uri out
houso at his homo In West Hoboken, The
cuimo of his death wns not known. He
was to havo appeared in court today as
complainant against several pernnns who

saloon In Hoboken.
REVIVING OF THE
TELEPHONE FIGHT
HAS CAUSED NO END Or GOS
SIP ABOUT CITY HALL.
Idea That the New Organization Is
Meioly a Blind to Cover n Second
Attempt of tho Original Company
to Sccuic a rranchlso Is Denied.
Thcro Is Nothing Certain About
tho Timo When Application Will
Bo Mado to Councils May Be Do
lnycd New Council Oignnizcs.
Lively comment was ocensstoned
In the city hall and among council-
men and In local linnnclal circles yes
tciday by The Trlbune'H nnnouccment
that the Lackawanna Telephone com
pany's chin ter nnd other rights had
been puichnsed by a well known co
terie of inonycci men who intended at
tomorrow night's meeting of common
council to begin nn effoit to scctito
a franchise, something which the nilg
Innl Lackawanna, organization failed
lo do after a blttor and memorable
councllmanlr fight.
The news was not news to the coun
cllmen, at least not to many of them
In both branches. The project has
been bionched to them eluilng the
past few days, but they weio asked
not to dlscusa It with outsiders. Tho
new- piomotcrs leallzo that they will
have an uphill light on their hands
lo sccuic the fianchlso and that pic
nmtuie publicity would not help them
Hence the iceiecy maintained until
tho publication ot The Tllbune's stcuy
jeslciday.
NOT PLAUSIHLI3.
It was aimted yesteidav. but with
litt'e or no loundatlon, that the ne.v
oiganlzatlon was ineiely a blind to
cover a second elfoit of tho original
company to set the fianchlsc. Tills
does not Seem plausible fiom tho fact
that the individuals now inteiested
have never had any business, politi
cal or other ufllhatlons with those)
back of tho old company.
It is held that the new company
does not have in v lew the purpose
of sc uilng a franchise to be held as
a weapon for forcing tho Cential Pcnn
svlvanla company to pay money to
keep the former out of business. In
suppoi t of this argument It Is stated
by a gentleman who knows tho plans
of tile new company, that it is willing
to give bonds to the extent ot $50,000
as a pledge that the company will be
loady to serve not less than six hun
dred subscrlbois withlii a leusonable
pel tod.
The Lackawanna company had
neaily eight hundred contracts with
prospective subscilbeis. These con
tiaets will bo oporatlvo for a length
oftimemorethnn sufficient foi tho now
company to establish its exchange
plant nnd build its lines, undeiground
or overhead. Thtso contracts come to
the new company w ith the charter,
corporate rights in fact, evciy inter
est that the old Lackawanna company
possessed.
SOM13 UNCI3HTAINTY
The only tnceitalnty about the
plans of tho new organization Is in
refetenco to beginning an attempt to
secure a franchise The Tribune is
reliably Informed that if the attempt
Is begun it will be pushed with as
much or moie vigoi than characterized
the attempt of the early company.
Theic lemalns the possibility that
the eftott may be deferred until after
the opting election, when councils will
havo nt least a different indlvinual
complexion than now. Another con
tingency, either in the event of a
defeat in tiylng to get the franchise
now or in elefening the attempt until
next spilng. is that the new company
may take a band In the councilmanlc
elections, having in view the election
of councllmen favorable to the com
pin's plans
Consldeilng the lesouices and politi
cal intluencc and strength of the new
promoters they might piove an im
poitant factor in the campaign.

Coachman for Mis. J. H. Phelps Is
Placed Under Arrest.
