Glt Ilov his Story implicating Bergerstock fails to stand test of dross examination. Stephen Moser charged with attempting to kill Frank m. Taylor by shooting through the window of his Home on the night of april 18th last was found guilty thursday by a jury of his Peers. The entire Forenoon was occupied with the examination of w it Nesses. Edward s. Gearhart counsel for the defendant went to the jury for the first thing in the afternoon. He was followed by or. Scarlet for the Commonwealth. The two addresses occupying the time until 3.30 o clock. The courts charge to the jury was very Clear and in Light of the testimony very few persons had any doubt As to what the finding would be. The jury retired about four of clock returning at 4 45 with a verdict. It was couched in the following words a we the jury find Stephen Moser guilty in manner and form As the most important Anil most interesting witnesses of thursday Forenoon were Stephen Moser the defendant and res Bergerstock whom he accused of doing the shooting. Bergerstock is a heavy bearded Plain looking Man who gave his age As forty years and his occupation As labourer. He is married and the father of six children. He was the cynosure of All eyes for if Mosery a Story was True he was a Man who hut for the slight Accident of missing Mark would have had murder to answer for. All he had to do in both the direct and i he Cross examination was to state whether or not Mosery a Story in its various details was True. His denials were very emphatic. Moser made a very bad impression on the stand. Lie gave his age As Twenty three years. He has a wife and a child. With the exception of one year he has always lived within a mile of Strawberry Ridge. His Story that he was not the principal in the shooting and that he became an accessory Only through intimidation did not stand the test of Cross examination. Stephen Moser sentenced. Stephen Moser convicted of attempting to shoot Frank m. Taylor was sentenced by judge Little Friday morning. As he stepped Forward for sentence Moser betrayed Little emotion or feeling characteristics which might have been remarked during the entire trial. Before passing sentence the court took occasion to remind him that there was hut Little in his Case that could Appeal for clemency that the evidence clearly showed that he had murder in his heart and Llinat it was Only owing to the slight circumstance of missing the Mark aimed at i hat his offence was not murder instead of an attempt to kill. The court touched feelingly upon the unfortunate circumstances of his Case his youth and the fact that he had a wife and child. The sentence of the court was As follows a that you Stephen Moser the Cost of prosecution a Fine of one thousand dollars to the Commonwealth and undergo imprisonment at separate and solitary confinement in the Eastern Penitentiary at hard labor for a period of seven years. A Moser had previously plead guilty to the charge of stealing chickens. Sentence in this Case was suspended. William Sweizer charged with desertion was sentenced to eight dollars monthly for the support of ids wife and child. The Case of Commonwealth is. Roy i Xiii occupied court Friday afternoon. Long was charged with defrauding a hoarding House keeper Joseph Eck of this City being prosecutor. Long was found guilty by the jury hut was recommended to the mercy of the court. Judge Little therefore suspended sentence giving the defendant some Good advice including the Man Dale that at the earliest Oppio Timity he liquidate the Bill that he owes Joseph Eck for Hoard hopi. James Fosters Strong address which was most favourably received. Among the speeches made during the discussion of the Fox Capitol Bill in the House of representatives at Harrisburg last week there was none More Happy in its allusions More favourably and widely commented upon than that of our representative Hon. James Foster. Or. Fosters speech in part is As follows a i desire to go upon record As heartily in favor of a completed Capitol building. While i May not agree with some of my colleagues As to the style of architecture the kind of material or the amount of appropriation to give us a Beautiful building yet i am convinced that the people of this Commonwealth will find the least fault if we give them the Best. A emr. Speaker i regret the parsimonious amount named in the Bill for this building. For my part i am now and have been in favor of five of six millions if need be for the work. 1 believe sir that if retrenchment is required it should begin somewhere else. I have heard gentlemen on this floor advocate the removal of the Capitol to some other City because of some trifling advantages w hich in their imagination would ensure to their own personal Comfort and pleasure. This place however has been satisfactory to the people of the Commonwealth for More than eighty seven years and to Many of us the spot is historic and dear. Or. Speaker the first night i Ever spent in m Beautiful City was spent in the Lovely Grove which surrounds us. There Are Oto a Eis perhaps in this House who like Byseit Lorty years ago spread their blankets beneath those stately Trees and slept peacefully Gratful for the pleasure Ami Protection they afforded. The spot to me is dearer than Ever with its Beautiful sloping Lawn its foliage and its Flowers. Let us therefore erect a building in keeping with the place the age and the great state which we Are Here to represent. It May not be a building As ornamental As the Temple of Apollo at Miletus or the Temple of Diana at Ephesus but it ought to he a building that unites strength and majesty with a becoming simplicity and the utmost symmetry of proportions. Let us pass this Hill then we can go Home and like the emperor Augustus of Rome boast that we too found our a Capitol of Brick and left it of to the Trade. Be have just arranged with b. K. Leaker of Danville to handle our of pure medicinal Rye and malt skies. We guarantee their purity a Hester distilling co. Duffy malt whiskey co. Ore Mims As a sewer. Those w to have a lairs in charge at the holy f Amily Convent this City have adopted an ingenious method of getting rail of the sewage. They had no difficulty in locating a portion of one of the abandoned Ore mines immediately under the grounds and they decided to sink a Well with the Hope of reaching the mines. After Boring Down to a depth of 100 feet they reached a cavity of some sort hut they could not Tell whether it was the mine or not. In order to test the matter Friday they secured the service of the Borough fire engine and for two hours pumped water from Mahoning Creek into the Well. The water ran out at the Bottom nearly As fast As pumped in at the top of the Well. The conclusion therefore seems Safe that they have struck the mines and they will rely upon this Means to dispose of their sewage. Approaching wedding. Miss Margaret Llu Lihen daughter of or. And mrs. George Llu Lihen East Mahoning Street and Joseph Galley of Philadelphia will he married on tuesday morning june 25th. The wedding will take place at 7 a. M. In St. Josephus Catholic Church.

The factory will not be Able to Start up before some time in August. A great Ileal of the machinery is slow in arriving.

In the Iron work department where a great Deal of the machinery remains to be in stalled the process is not so easy to understand. The number of men to be employed when the Plant starts up will not be less than 150. The number at present employed varies. Monday there were Over 40 employees at work. Herbert Wharton who removed to this City from Wyoming four months ago is superintendent. General manager Barber is determined to guard against los by fire. He has adopted a system of fire Protection which can not fail in efficiency. Throughout the Plant he has installed five modern fire plugs two in the handle factory and three in the Large building.

Among the employees lie Lias organized a the brigade with Charles Gibbons As chief and Samuel Sainsbury assistant.
