A Auri Leuco something larger than usual assembled in y. C. A. Hall sunday afternoon to hear the address of Tommy Masliuk who has been oscillating Between this City and Bloo Insburg daring a wee or so past. Tommy Masliuk is truly a wonderful Man with a remarkable career and As was natural the address had about it a Peculiar fascination. Not Only has the Man a message to impart that commands attention but. He has May of the gifts that make up a Strong speaker. He wastes no words but is terse an i logical often eloquent and he drives Home the truths he utters with great Power. All this is remarkable in View of the wasted years of his life and the utter Lack of preparation of his part for Public speaking or intellectual work of any sort. Tommy Masliuk proclaims himself the a rescued Many and explains that lie was once a drunkard and a Gambler. His subject yesterday was a a human wreck but a spiritual Victory and his talk of course had to do with his own experience. The depth of degradation into which the Man had fallen was indeed great and yet to some extent he was the sport of c Iron is causes. His first term of two years in the Penitentiary was spent for a crime that another committed although he might have is Capul had he made a clean breast of what he knew Iuorio Inatius the real offender. Disgraced himself and after dragging his parents and Brothers and Sisters along Down with him at the expiration of his term he was turned out. As he Pat it a a to sink or swim one Day up and Many Days from then on the life he led was the usual life of the sex convict the Gambler the drunkard until he found himself again in the Penitentiary and served Nineteen months of a two years sentence for shooting at a Man in a bar room Brawl the consoling circumstance of it All being that the Ballet went wide of the Mark and that the shot was fired because he was in a tight then after it All came his conversion through the efforts of a woman evangelist to whom lie paid a lofty tribute. Then with his efforts to resist temptation which came in the form of drink and the presence of old associates the troubles of life began to multiply. A former companion under the influence of liquor came into his House and incensed because Masliuk refused to drink with him became abusive and disorderly and attacked his wife and when Tommy flew to her Rescue the drunk eau Man stabbed him inflicting a terrible Grasli upon his face and Throat that came within a hairs breadth of severing the jugular vein. This explains the unsightly scar upon the Evang dist a face that lie will carry to the grave. Tommy Lay at deaths door for some time and was told that his life could be saved Only by taking stimulants. But he did no to believe it and chose to die rather Pat to his lips the dreadful curse that had brought him so much misery. He recovered while the Man who attacked him went to the Penitentiary for two years. The sincerity and the goodness of Maslin is shown by the fact that after the Man who so nearly murdered him served his term Tommy found him Cne Day and helped him along by giving him Money out of Liis own scanty store and looking after him from then of until he finally succeeded in effecting his conversion. The whole Story was one of bitter trial Aud there was plenty of pathos in it As the speaker told of his Desper ate struggles to hold on to the Good Aud How by Ever remembering Christ and his promises he was Able to resist and hold out to the end. At eve try Page of his life a history there was some lesson to be Learned that should be a help and guide to others. It should be mentioned also that Tommy Maslin served As a Soldier in the civil War and left a Finger on the Field of Batlle. For the last 2h years lie has been engaged in evangelistic work. His wife and children after seeing him Reform were claimed by death and the poor Man has had sorrow after sorrow. His Home now is at Fer Kasei Bank is county. He has a second wife who accompanied him to Danville eight years ago and assisted Tommy in his evangelistic efforts.

The mock trial Given in association Hall tuesday eve under the auspices of tie y. C. A. Proved to be Oue of the Best evenings sport Ever fur i Slid Danville people. Things moved rapidly and there was not a Dull moment from the opening until the adjournment of court no a moment when something Crisp and unexpected did not develop. It was a evening of Happy 44 hits Aud there was Nota part of the proceedings cat did not i effect upon some one in an exceedingly witty Aud humorous Way. All of which shows that colonel a v Newton who was at the head of the mock trial is a gentleman of Many talents and knows How to get up a Fine entertainment. The make up of the court was printed in these columns monday morning it was shortly after 8 of clock when the court consisting of w. V. Oglesby judge t. G. Vincent clerk Aud w. Heddens court crier filed up the Steps Aud occupied their places on the stage. It was with real judicial dignity his Honor w. V. Oglesby settled Down upon the Bench of the improvised bar which had been constructed during the afternoon. Prothonotary Vincent and court crier Heddens of course were experienced hands and performed their parts with dignity and dispatch. When court was opened the usual inquiry As made Couce Ruig cases on the docket. It developed that there were a Large number of these which were in turn take up Aud disposed of. Three of these which stand As a Sample of All the others follow Here. Case no. 1165 was that of Commonwealth is. V. Oglesby. Or. Oglesby was charged with the def Daut being the judge presiding opened the Way for some complications it is Trae but tiie Case was disposed of to the satisfaction of everybody including the defendant who pleaded guilty and threw himself of the mercy of the court. Colonel Newton made a Strong plea for clemency stating that it was the first time the defendant Ever committed the offence of a Over exertion and Chat he would never a do it the sentence of the court was that the defendant be committed to the old ladies Home at Wilkes Barre at soft labor for the term of his natural life. Case no. 1170 was that of Commonwealth is. Frauk g. Slioch. The charge was eating All the oysters at a Church supper. In this Case the attorney declared that the indictment was defective and moved that it to a Squash the fatal defect he said Lay in tiie fact that the term a a oysters was used instead of the singular form a Oyster. A who he significantly asked Ever heard of More than one Oyster at a Church supper at Danville his Honor saw the Point Aud the attorneys View prevailed. The indictment was quashed. No. 1185 was a Case against s. F. Ricketts who was charged with Selling a undressed he pleaded guilty through his counsel but the fact was cited As an extenuating circumstance that he sold a undressed kids in order that the hands of the Dauville Public might he better dressed and he went Scott free. Finally the Case of Commonwealth is. Ii. Sober was reached which went to trial. The charge was stealing a rooster. The jurors named in mondays Issue were called each however under the name of a state or National celebrity. The jurors As called to the Box were Grover Cleve land David b. m. Depew Alton b. Parker. John Wana maker Samuel w. Pennypacker Admiral George Dewey. J. Pierra ont Morgan general Nelson a. Miles Theodore Roosevelt John l. Sullivan and Thomas c. Platt. As customary the jurors when Calle Ltd were obliged to answer certain questions before they were permitted to take seats. The questions had a reference to the mail Aud his Public career and were in Ever Case irresistibly funny. For instance David b. Hill was asked whether he a was a Democrat a Alton b. Parker whether he heard a anything drop a Admiral Dewey whether a this wife knew he was out a Samuel w. Pennypacker whether he a would like to have supreme court judgeship a and so on to the end. The replies were in keeping with the q nest ions. Admiral Dewey stated that his wife did not know lie was out Aud that he wished to keep her in the dark about it. Samuel w. R. C. Jacob of the Maryland construction company array pm at this City yesterday for the purpose of looking Over the state High Way Aud ascertaining what prospects there Are of completing work on the Road this Winter. During last even aug he was interviewed at the City hotel. Or. Jacob stated that the company in View of the open weather had hoped to fully Complete the Highway this Winter. His visit yesterday however convinced him that it would be impracticable to re Crown the Road this Winter. There is already More or Les Frost in the ground which interferes with digging while a circumstance which adds to the difficulty is tiie fact that no one can place Auy Reliance upon no ceiling store with Auy degree of regularity at this season of the year. Add to this the uncertainty of fair weather and you have conditions that Are Likely to result in Long hold ups in such work As Road building or Freeman with a Force of men will Likely remain on the ground a few Days longer making some changes in Grade drainage <&c., to satisfy property owners. With the next change of weather at mo3t he will leave and there will be a suspension of All work until next Spring. The amount of work required to bring the Road Fally up to specifications is not great Aud can be finished up in considerably less than a Mouth. Or. Jacob very much regrets the delay that has occurred and no one feels the disappointment More keenly than himself that the work can not be completed at the present. Daring the Sam Mer lie was building a state Highway in Lancaster coup Fly. His representative or. Freeman would have been Here Early in the fall but just As they were about to take up the Road Here 1000 feet More were added to tiie Highway they were building in Lancaster county which detained them. Or. Jacob stated that it is his determination to give Montour county a perfect piece of stare Highway. The Maryland construction company in its relation to tiie state Highway Here has been the victim of a series of unfortunate circumstances Itiat have militated against Success. To begin with the Highway Here was one of the first applied for in the state. All the methods employed even the plans themselves were new and since then As the result of experience there have been modifications along All lines which makes construction of roads later applied for simpler Aud easier. Plans and specifications for a Highway Between Danville and the Valley township line if made today would bring ont altogether a different kind of a Road from the one constructed. Will Fleet Friday night. A number of our citizens interested in getting up a first class mummers Parade on new years Day met in the grand jury room last night. The turn out was not quite what those present thought it ought to be and tie meeting adjourned to reconvene in the engine House of the Washington Hose company at 7 30 of clock on Friday night next. The object in meeting in the grand jury room was for the Parps be of creating a More general interest and to show that there was no disposition to restrict the honors to the Washington fire company. A general attendance is desired at the place of meeting of Friday night. The time is very Short.

Sober then proceeded. C v Amerau being prosecuting attorney and col. Newton attorney for the defense. The witnesses were or. R. S Patton Walter Lovett w. The d. L. Amp w. Railroad company manifests keen interest in conditions Here relating to the old canal of which that corporation is the owner. Ever since the company a proposition to fill up the old waterway with the Aid of the Borough was turned Down by Council last summer the Railroad peo pie have been anxious to revive the matter in a Orne form. During an interview with councilman j. H. Goeser Yeste div it was Learned that g j. Ray division Engineer of the i l amp w. Railroad company will come to Danville tomorrow morning for the purpose of meeting the sewer committee of of our cil and g. F. Keefer the Borough Surveyor the object of the conference being to see what Tai be done foward getting rid of the nuisance of a new basis that will enable the Borough and the Railroad company to co operate in such a Way that will not place too heavy a Burden upon the municipality. In what respect the terms will differ from the former proposition is not known Bat it is hoped that they will be very generous otherwise but Little will come out of it. Or is Clear that the present Council will not agree to anything like the former proposition which provided that the d. L. Amp w. Railroad company pipe the Bottom and the Borough of Dauville fill up the canal. The expense of filling it was argued would be enormous also that while the Borough might get rid of the drainage nuisance for which it was not responsible the Railroad com Pany would be immensely the gainer by having a Long strip of Laud embraced by the canal improved and enhanced in value principally at the Borough s expense. The outcome of the conference will no doubt figure in proceedings of Council tomorrow night. Meanwhile there is much speculation As to just what proportion of the Havy Burden the owners of tiie old canal will con seut to Bear in order to wipe out the .
