which will be held next Wednesday

Frank Taylor Was Brounbl Ink
' Court By Bis Fatbrr.
The divorce laws of the state seem
to be responsible for the peculiar pre
dicament Frank Taylor, who will be
16 in February, found himself In the
city court to-day. Taylor's father
lives at Wedge's coiners. He has
boen divorced and Is living with his
second wife. His first wife Is living
with her second husband in Hartford
and between bis own father and own
mother on one hand and his step
father and step-mother on the other
hand young Taylor wonders whore-he
is at. His father testified that he
cannot handle him, and the boy ad
mitted as much. Mr Taylor did not
want the boy sent to any institution.
He Just had him In court to see what
he could have done with him, for he
will not work and he will not play.
He stays home nights, but he has run
away three times. He has been
working a year and in that time ha
had fourteen Jobs, his father said. A
few days ago he loft his father'
place and went to his mother's In
Hartford. A day there gave him
enough of the Capitol city. The boy
admitted that his father can't handle
him, neither can his mother, nor hie
step-mother, nor his step-father, nnd
he could not tell the reason why. He
said he can't get along with his step
mother, and his step-father doesn't
want him around the house. The
other day when in Hartford he found
an old revolver and threatened his
mother he would get a new one and
do his step-father because he was Ill
treating his mother. He said that
his mother would like to be appoint
ed his legal guardian, but so long ns
he is under hla father's care she can't
handle him. Such a peculiar case
never before came to the attention
of the court. Judge Peasley did not
know what to do and Prosecutor Mc
Grath did not know what to reconi
mend, but finally suggested that the
boy be put on probation for thirty
days, and the court so ordered.
The trial of a case in which Mrs
Nastazia Wuzsky, her brother, Leo
pold Kusmusky, and his wife, Annj,
were charged with breach of th
peace, occupied the greater part of
the morning. Mrs Wuzsky, who.
looked more like a waxen figure than
a human being, fainted twice before
court opened and had to be helpod
to the witness stand. She was hurt
internally, more by shock than any
thing else, and she was able to spealc
only above a whisper. No one could
account for the marks on her fore
head, her sprained wrist aid
wrenched shoulder. It seemed to be
a case of one woman and three men
against Mrs Wuzsky. Both women
were found not guilty and Kusmusky
was fined $10 and costs and given
thirty days In jail. An appeal was
Errleo Napolonl and Francesco P.
Parisl broke loose in a saloon at the
corner of Jackson and Bank streets
last evening and Giovanni Rizzo got
some bad knife wounds. He was
unable to be in court and on that ac
count the cases were continued to to
morrow on ball of $300.
BROKE HUB XOSE.
Hin t ford Accident that Ended in an
Hartford, Dec 31. Because Mrs
Laura Campancella came out of tho
door of her lodging house at 16'J
State street yesterday afternoon just
at the minute she should have been
somewhere else, she got a broken
nose, and Frank Copier, a carpenter's
apprentice, 18 years old, was arrest
ed for assault and battery. Just as
Mrs Campancella came out of the
door to the street, Copier, who was
working ou a staging above the door,
dropped his hammer to the ground,
and the woman caught it on the nose.
She fainted, and by the time Copier
got down on the ground she was lyinK
in the hallway in a pool of blood.'
The sight of the unconscious woman
made Copier's tears flow about as fast
as the blood did, and Mrs Campancel
la was taken to the emergency hos
pital in the police station in the am
bulance and treated by Police Sur
geon F. A. Emmett, and Copier wai
taken the station in the patrol wagon.
He was later released, still weeping,
under bonds of $100.
