He even May have Lieen furnished Coffee from the Wato Sien Coffee sit but this was the limit the food he at he had to provide himself. For the privilege of a a roosting in the Wato Sien House and the few slim courtesies additional lie paid the sum if $3 tier month. It was for just about his sum that he was ill arrears.

Will in possible a prisoner came within an Ace of breaking out of the Borough lock up tuesday afternoon. In Liis Effort to find the weakest Point lie assailed his prison Wall at two different Points and when discovered Only a single Spike stood Between him and Liberty. The Man in Durance was John a noun who has a Little affair to Settle with the police the full nature of which developed at the hearing yesterday. John kept the officers Busy during the greater part of the time tuesday and before they succeeded in laying their hands upon him they were obliged to tramp Over a Large part of the Borough. It was some time after the hour of noon when they succeeded in lodging their mail behind the liars in the Borough lock up. John was supposed to be under the influence of drink nevertheless he thought he ought to he entitled to a few privileges Ami he begged to be allowed the Freedom of the corridor. The usual hard lot of those arrested a under similar circumstances is to be confined in a narrow cell some six by three feet in which a hard Bench suffices for a bed. A chief Mincemoyer however was touched by Johns eloquent plea and after much hesitancy he consented to leave the Coll door open so that John could get into the corridor. It was a generous act but he will never do it again. Securely bolting tie outer door the two policemen turned their Hacks upon the lock up and went up town. Some time after three of clock persons occupying the rear of City Hall became aware that something unusual was in Progress in the lock up. They could hear sounds that resembled the breaking a if hoards and the drawing of Iron Holts. They lost no time in getting word to the chief of police who in turn lost no time in getting to the lock up. Lie Iii us to arrive a moment too soon. Using the stove poker and the stove a a Shaker As a bar tie Lone prisoner had pried two boards off the wainscoting. In the process he had broken and splintered the hoards and one was taken off piecemeal. Underneath he found firm planking and lie concluded that the Way to Liberty did no to lie in direction. He next attacked the window tearing off the Stout screen that Tec Ted it on the inside then forcing the window up he devoted himself to the Iron bars which protected the window on the onside. In due time he succeeded in loosening one end of of of the bars and wits just ready to attack the next of when the officer appeared. Five minutes Moro would have done Tho work. Thus the first Delili Erate attempt to break out a if the lock up in Danville ended in ignoble failure. The prisoner paid the k Fialty by going into solitary confinement.

He was released on the Promise that in would Stop drinking and would come into the Justice s office saturday a a veiling after drawing his pay Ami Square up for file and costs. When saturday , it is alleged lie forgot his promises took on More booze and utterly neglected to Settle. Under the circumstances it is not strange that the officers wanted John on tuesday.

Borough Engineer makes a Survey. It is still believed that the recoil Striction of North Mill Street will be i compleat d this fall and that the work will Start during the present month.

Needless expense in the court. The Sunbury daily has the following to say about the clogging of the channels of Justice by Petty cases Ami the useless excuse caused Tho county by those suits which state of affairs tin daily says is particularly in evidence in Northumberland county a the county commissioners of Tho state at their recent convention in Lancaster among other propositions that appear practical and beneficial put themselves on record in a matter relating to costs that is Likely to meet with popular favor. They recommend Tho enactment of a Law to protect the different counties from the payment of All costs in minor criminal cases where the Bill of indictment is ignored by the grand jury or the defendant is acquitted by the Petit jury or the Caso dismissed by the court. A a Tiki passage of such a Law would without doubt save Tho taxpayers thousands of dollars. No other county has suffered More than Northumberland from Cost expenses which a Law would obviate. A for years complaints Liao been made that justices in the Coal regions Send every Petty Case heard before them to court. Lawyers fees witness fees and All the other exit on sos of a Legal action Are then thrust upon the county to help swell its indebtedness. As the parties to the suit in such cases Are Seldom Able to pay the costs the expense must necessarily be borne by the taxpayers. A consequently i Roplo residing in the Western townships and boroughs have their county taxes almost doubled by thu per Gotual Legal disputes of a lot of worthless foreigners in the Coal regions. A was it is said that the commissioners will probably increase the tax As Sissy but for the coming year in order to meet current exit Elises this Point is Worth Sunbury Grants franchise. The Council in meeting a in tuesday night passed an ordinance permitting the Sunbury and Selinsgrove Street railway company to Lay tracks in certain thoroughfares in that town. The trucks will to Laid on front Street along the River from the end of the new Bridge All through town to the upper Borough limits. The line will Cross tin new Bridge now building and proceed to Selinsgrove on the Snyder county Side. The Early pumpkin tells us fall is at hand. Mrs. Samuel Mccloskey of maus Dale narrowly escaped death sunday morning by being struck by a freight train. She sustained a bad fracture of the loft i sub and was otherwise injured. She was taken to the Joseph Katti Hospital at Bloomsburg. The Accident occurred about seven of clock. Mrs. Mccloskey was on her Way to Church in this City and was walking along the p. Amp r. Track. She had not proceeded very far before a freight train passed through Mausdale and was soon close upon her footsteps. According to stories told by the trainmen the woman utterly failed to hear the usual danger signals. As is Custo Mary when any one is found walking upon the track ahead the Engineer de clares lie first sounded the whistle apparently oblivious of All danger and without oven glancing backward the woman continued wanting on still keeping the track. Meanwhile the train was gaining rapidly. As the next resort the Engineer rang the Bell and this together with the soul of the whistle created quite a Din but owing to some incomprehensible cause the woman still failed to hear. Up to the very last the Engineer believed that the next moment the woman would perceive her danger and get out of the Way otherwise lie would have stopped the train. As it was when it became Clear that Tho woman could not be made to hear he endeavoured to bring the train to a sudden Stop but had Only succeeded in slowing Down when the engine struck the woman. Mrs. Mccloskey was thrown to one Side of the Tomk. The Accident occur real at a Point directly opposite the Forks of the Jerseytown and Mausdale roads where there is a Low embankment she was badly injured and was unable to arise. The train was stopped and the injured woman was tenderly picked up by the train Crew and carried into the caboose whore a cot was improvised. Thus she was brought to Danville where the train Lay for some time. Or. Paules was called to the station about 7 4.�?~> of clock. He examined the woman a injuries and found that she was very seriously though not fatally injured. On the left leg below the knee was a compound comminuted fracture embracing both Bones. In addition there was a bad Scalp wound on the left Side of hie head. On i. Pauless recommendation it was decided to remove mrs. Mccloskey to the Joseph Patti Hospital at blooms Burg. She was accordingly placed on a cot and carried Down to a the under Grade crossing where she was placed on a Danville and Bloomsburg trolley car and carried to Bloomsburg. A Telephone message from the Joseph Ratti Hospital later stated that mrs. Mccloskey was resting very easily. Her worst injuries As above stated consisted of a broken limb and a had Cut on Tho Side of her head there were however minor injuries about Ali a body among them several Scalp wounds. The injured woman is some 38 years of age. She has three Small children the youngest a babe six Mouths old. Samuel Mccloskey the husband is a stove Moulder and is employed at Hooley a foundry. East Mahoning Street this City. Is High water flare of attendance. The Public schools of the Borough of joined tuesday. The attendance throughout the Grados was about what is customary on the first Day of school with the exception of the High school where attendance reached High water Mark there being lt�5 pupils ouro led. So far As Borough superintendent Dorily Lias been Able to determine the present enrolment is the highest that Lias Over taken place in the High school. When lie took charge of the High school six years ago the number of pupils enrolled was the number kept on increasing regularly at the rate of some twelve or fifteen a year until the present when the showing is As above stated. Of course Tom new Law which permits pupils from the Rural districts too attend Borough High schools at the townships exp use is in some measure responsible for the growing enrolment. Nevertheless if we eliminate the non resident pupils altogether we will find that there has been a growing increase in the number of pupils attending Tho High school which can be accounted for Only by the Jio Pular Ity of the school and the course of study adopted. Borough superintend but Gordy thinks that the plan of granting diplomas to the grammar school graduates which has had the judge Staples held a Short session of court yesterday morning. Charles a. Wagner was the Only one of the associates present. The session was very Brief occupying Only some Twenty minutes. Judge Staples had come Down to Danville for the purpose of disposing of the Case of Commonwealth is. Francis charge being larceny and receiving stolen goods which was tried before his Honor at the september term 1905, and which carried with it a verdict of guilty on the second count and a recommendation for mercy. James Scarlet esq.,attorney for the Reading Iron company the prosecutor in the Case addressed the court. He said that Woll was an employee of the Reading Iron company was a skilled Workman and was a very valuable Man to the company. Whatever he May have been guilty of in Tho past he now seems to have abandoned All such practices the Reading Iron company is satisfied with his present course of conduct and at the company a instance or. Scarlet appeared before court asking that the recommendation for mercy made by the jury to carried out and that in Wollus Case sentence be suspended. Woll was called before court hut was permitted to take a seat. From this Point it seemed to be a foregone conclusion that leniency in some form was to he exercised. Judge Staples said lie had made some inquiry and Felt convinced that Wollus Case was one that admitted of clemency. Ordinarily he said in cases where the verdict is guilty it pays to administer Puni Sliment. There Are exceptions however where the Man instead of being punished should have mercy meted out to him. In the present Case he said it seemed to him that the convicted Man had been severely punished already. In addition the costs which amount to $93.75, will have to he paid by Woll. It was the recommendation of the jury backed later by the request of the prosecutor in the Case that moved judge Staples toward clemency and he stated to Woll that lie hoped that if sentence were suspended would have the effect of making a mail of him and lie wished him god Speed on the new life. Judge Staples reminded Woll of the pathetic picture presented by his Oil Gray headed Mother when in court As a witness. He said he had no doubt that her presence had its effect on tiie jury and he hoped that Woll would key p her in mind and by leading a better life spare her the pain and humiliation of coining into court again. Judge Staples then formally declared sentence suspended and after explaining just what is implied by a a suspension of sentence formally discharged Woll. The Case was disposed of in judge Staples characteristic Way which aroused a heart interest in the whole affair. No one was Izard to a express any dissatisfaction with the action taken by the court.
