The improvements at the steam grist Mill this City recently purchased by Dietz Lawrence Fry were completed yesterday. The finishing touches were put on the work during the afternoon. The signal was Given and in an instant a Hundred wheels began to revolve throughout the Fourst Aries of the building a Complex system of Rolls elevators and sieves was set in motion and what is practically a new Industry for our town entered upon its career. No More modern or better equipped Mill can be found in the state. The Noye Sieve system has been installed which necessitated throwing out All the old machinery with one or two exceptions where the machines were rebuilt on new lines. The two up to Date swinging sifters installed take the place of the fourteen old fashioned reels formerly employed. The entire change gives not Only a better system but also one which occupies less space leaving an abundance of room in the Mill for storage a deficiency which was formerly a great inconvenience. No one visiting the Mill can View the system employed without being impressed with the Progress made in the Art of milling during recent years. There is scarcely anything to suggest the old fashioned revolving Stone which reduced the Grain directly to the flour. Instead of the Stone the new system employs rollers and in the process carries the flour from the first to the fourth floor of the building fifteen times sifting tanning and purifying it so that instead of one Grade of flour there Are two. The product of the Mill will be 100 barrels of flour per Day. The new system in addition to turning out better flour requires considerably less Power and effects a saving in Cost of manufacture. The improvements were made by r. W. Barton a milling expert of Rochester n. Y., who has been in this City since the work began. The firm owning the Mill is composed of John Dietz Charies j. Lawrence and g. A. Fry. The two former will be in charge of the Mill or. Fry driving the Wagon. James Lewis is Engineer. Stephen Moser held for Cohrt he is charged with a murderous upon Frank Taylor. Presentation of Post Flag. A fair sized assemblage convened in g. A. K. Hall monday evening to witness the presentation of the new Flag to Goodrich Post no. 22, g. A. R. The presentation address was made by Ralph Kisner Esq. The address was a thoroughly felicitous one delivered in the Young orators most eloquent and patriotic Strain. On behalf of the voluntary contributions of the citizens of Danville and Community he presented the hag to Goodrich Post dwelling on the enlarged Mission of the stars and stripes reverting to the memories of the old soldiers Back in the Days of �?T61, their patriotism and loyalty which kept the stars in the Flag and made the slaves free. Lion. R. K. Polk stepped Forward and took the hag. Quot on behalf of Goodrich Post a he said �?~1 accept this Beautiful Flag As a Token of the appreciation and love which you the citizens of Danville feel for the surviving soldiers of our great civil Var. No More appropriate gift could have been made to this Post. To no one is there a sight so inspiring As the Graceful folds and Beautiful colors of our National Flag. To the comrades of Goodrich Post it is doubly inspiring. For Mouths and years they followed it not Only through Long and tedious marches but in the midst of fierce and deadly Battle. How Many of their comrades friends and Brothers have they seen go to their last resting place covered with its Beautiful or. Polk paid a splendid tribute not Only to the hag but to the heroism of our soldiers and the hearts of the veterans of the Post were visibly touched As he dwelt upon the lapse of time since the rebellion and the extent to which the ranks of the survivors Are thinning out.

It left Sunbury six minutes late making one Stop at Wolverton and arriving at South Danville on time. The run�?12 Miles was made in fifteen minutes. Gar jumping most cease p. 4 r. Officers Here to break up the practice. Stephen Moser was arraigned before Justice of the peace i. P. Bare monday afternoon charged with committing a murderous assault upon Franklin m. Taylor of Liberty township. The a Squires office was crowded with attorneys and witnesses while the pavement outside was nearly blocked with curious spectators. Moser handcuffed to officer Voris was brought into the room at 2 30 of clock and assigned to a seat in one Corner lie complained very much of the heat but betrayed Little embarrassment or worry although he was the cynosure of All eyes and the evidence from beginning to end was uniformly damaging to his Case. Sex senator w. H. Hackenberg of Milton with District attorney Thomas c. Welsh represented the prosecution. R. S. Ammerman and Ralph Kisner appeared for the defendant. The hearing was continued from Friday last when Moser went on record As having nothing to say As to whether he was guilty or not guilty. The hearing therefore yesterday proceeded at once with the taking of testimony attorney Hackenburg examining the witnesses. Franklin m. Taylor was sworn. He related the Story of the shooting which agreed with the facts As set Forth in these columns at the time of the event. He was certain he said that the shot was fired by someone standing close to the window As the Flash showed inside for at least a foot or More. The Ball which broke a piece out of the Glass a couple of inches in diameter passed Between or. Taylor and his wife the shattered fragments of Glass striking both husband and wife. The shot struck the window three feet from the ground a fact taken to indicate that the person firing the shot was in a crouching position. The foot prints leading to the spot discovered the next morning measured 11� inches and corresponded precisely with the shoe of Stephen Moser who in charge of an officer was brought to the premises during the Day. In attempting to account for his whereabouts the evening before Moser stated that he had taken the Mare Alice from Alex. Billmeyer a stable and Ridden to the Home of his father at Strawberry Ridge. The horse tied near the barn was not attached to a Wagon and left at least one clearly defined print of Hoof in the mud. With reference to his revolver Moser said he had not had occasion to use it since some time before april 1st. Moser was taken to his residence before he was brought to Danville on the evening of april 19th. In the party were or. Taylor and attorney Hackenburg. Moser�?T9 revolver which was then produced showed that one Cartridge was empty and the chamber powder Burnt presenting the appearance of having been recently used. Or. Taylor said that after being committed Moser sent for him that he paid him a visit in the jail when the defendant made a statement containing certain admissions. The admittance of this As evidence which it will be remembered implicated another party was strenuously objected to by the defendants counsel. The Point was waived by the prosecution As unimportant. The Bullet a 32 calibre one considerably flattened by its co tact with the Wall wa9 admitted in evidence. Alex. Billmeyer next testified. He described the condition that he found the Mare Alice in on the morning after the shooting. He had granted no one permission to use her the night before. If she had been Ridden or driven by any one they had stolen her from the stable. The horses exhausted condition was apparent during the afternoon when she wanted to lie Down while harnessed to the Harrow. Moser s father he said lives Only three Miles away and had he Ridden the horse there As he insisted he did the animal would have shown no bad effects. On the other hand had he Ridden to Taylor a farm and Back he would have had a ride of 14 or 15 Miles quite sufficient to tire any horse under such a heavy rider while had he gone around by lim Stoneville the distance covered would not have been less than Twenty some Miles. Andrew Kelly sworn. He was present at Taylor a House the Day after the shooting. It was he who measured Mosery a shoes and took the dimensions of the imprints left by the horses hoofs. The horse Ridden he said was shod with corks worn round at the Corners. He examined the shoes worn by the Mare Alice owned by or. Billmeyer and found she was shod with shoes of the same make and peculiarity the hoof9 also corresponding in dimensions with the imprints. In Philip Boyer a farm hand in the employ of Alex. Billmeyer was the next witness. While the horse s hoofs were being measured he said Moser called him aside and whispered the request that he immediately go up to his mos Eros father and state that he had a got Home there Early in the William Auten and Roy Shultz both saw a Man on horseback near the Chillisquaque Church about 10 of clock on the night of the shooting. Auten met the Man 600 Yards West of Taylor a residence he spoke to him but received no answer. Shultz met him at another Point Riding Quot at a Gallop As hard As the horse could both Auten and Shultz were impressed with the general resemblance that the Man on horseback bore to Moser so that he was the first person that arose in their mind the next Day when they heard o the attempted murder. He was a Short heavy set Man although his features were not recognizable in the darkness while the horse he was Riding corresponded in color and size to the one taken from or. Billmeyer a stable. On the strength of the evidence adduced Moser was held for court in $3000 bail in default of which he was committed to the county jail. Trespassing on Railroad property by jumping cars which As is Well known is bad enough on All the lines passing Here is a nuisance especially grievous on the p. Amp r. Railway. There is scarcely a train bound North or South which on pulling out does not carry its quote of free excursion lists Many of them the merest youngsters bound for the neighbouring towns of Milton Catawissa amp a.
