This matter was tried ibefore .Justice •Holbrook at the City H a ll and occu­ pied nearly all of th e time on Tues- .,day afternoon. Corporation Counsel W. P. Gregg appeared for The Peo­ p le and Attorney Frank Lybolt for the defendant. For the prosecution, State Inspec­ tor of W eights and Measures S. Blum enthal testified that on Thurs- i day, February 29th, he went into the^ I m e a t market of Mr. W ollner on Pike '.Street and, after an investigation, ' -JTound one o f the scales unfit for use. ; H e tested it thoroughly and put the I .-condemnation tag on it.

Mr, W illiam Reymar, of Sparrow- bush, Mr. James Head, of Middle- town, (representing a beef company), and Mr. Harry Prey corroborated the testimony of Mr. Wollner. M!r. Blumenthal, recalled, for the prosecution testified that the state department of weights and measures did not give its seal of approval to commercial articles but only stand­ ards of apparatus 'for use in cities and counties. Attorneys Gregg and Lyholt sum­ med up With considerable vigor, and Justice Holbrook decided that the defendant was guilty. No penalty was imposed however. t Mtv Mr. Bullivant Acquitted. Wednesday a t 9.30 a. m. the case The People against W illiam Bullivant for the alleged \dolation of section 2,412 of the penal code in having in his possession false scales, was tried before Justice Holbrook and a jury at the City Hall. The case for the defendant was tried by Attorney Frank Lybolt and Corporation Coun­ sel W. P. Gregg for the People. Inspector S. Blumenthal and City Sealer of W eights and Measures D. C. Starks testified that on Janu; 29th they inspected the scales a t Bullivant’s and found that they were defective about an ounce in a pound. sy ordered Bullivant to throw out the sdiles. ^On February 29tb they visited his store and found the scales in his cellar, Mr. Bullivant said that he had the scales down cel­ lar to guage quantities for his good scales up-stairs, so as to save him many trips up and down stairs. Special Officer W. B. Hornbeck tes­ tified as to securing the scales, which were offered in evidence. ' The People then rested and the mofion of Attorney Lybolt for a dis­ missal of the com plaint was denied. For the defense, Mr. Bullivant,the defendant, testified that he did not weigh any goods on the scales after they were condemned by the sealers. Pie gauged articles in his cellar by the old scales, as it saved him many trips upand down stairs. There was no intent to violate any law, and he was not aware that he had commit­ ted any violation as alleged by the prosecution.

Among the witnesses of the day were Miss Schiedel, of Deposit, and County Treasurer W. F. Sherwood, of Bing­ hamton. A feature of the afternoon session was the attendance of State Senator Harvey D. Hinman, counsel for -w. M. OregJory, trustee of Knapp Brothers, and who represents that es­ tate in party with Attorney E. D. Cumming, of Deposit. The Senator is recovering from the effects! of the painful injury he sustained early dast week a t the D. & H. depot in Albany, where a truck passed over his foot, nearly crushing it. Miss Schiedel gave evidence as to the affairs of the Knapp Brothers bank at Callicoon, a t which she was bookkeeper, and went at length into the technicalities of th e branch. This evidence, it is claimed by the Knapp Brothers and Outing estate tends to support their contention that the Knapps, while in domination of the banks and the business concerns de­ pendent upon the banks, used every known means of extorting money from the people of that section, and also Binghamton, to th e loss of the many and the enrichment of the few.

Millar, alderman of the eighth ward of Scranton, and Mrs. Millar had a naiTow escape from drowning last Monday when a boat in which they were fish­ ing in the St. John’s river, in Florida, capsi’/edl in 40 feet of water. The ac­ cident occurred in a lonely spot along the river, and for more than a half hour Major Millar clung to the bottom of the upturned boat, supporting Mrs. Millar and shouting for help. Attract­ ed by the shouts, a half dozen ne­ groes came running from a cabin a fourth of a mile away, and, jumping into the river rescued the almost ex­ hausted fishers. Mrs, Millar suffered from exposure and from nervous shock and was under the doctor’s care for several days. Major Millar escap­ ed with a cold and a wetting. Major Millar and Mrs. Millar have been in Florida for two months. Ma­ jor Millar’s ill health at that time hav­ ing decidled him to seek a change of climate for the winter. They sailed for home .Sunday from Jacksonville, Fla., and will arrive in Scranton on Thursday. After a day or two at their home there Major and Mrs. Millar will go to their summer home in W estbrookville, Sullivan county, N. Y., where Mrs. Millar will remain un­ til she recovers from the effects of her Florida accident. Alderman Millar is a prominent Elk and Mason and is well known in Port Jervis and vicinity, where he has many friends. -------- ---------- Lawyer Franklin M. Olds Dead. Franklin M.

Mr. Olds built an at­ tractive home at Mountaindale some years ago, and was one of the most prominent citizens o f that village. Wednesday, February 28th was the tenth anniversary o f the only serious flood ever experienced at Honesdale. It was caused by a huge ice gorge which formed in the Lackawaxen above the Park Lake dam. The water began to rise and overflow the streets and thoroughfares of the town just as nighit’s.^darkness had come one. Cellars and the first floors of many places were submerged under water which continued to rise until , about mid­ night When the ice gorge gave Tvay and the waters then began to recede. Damage to the extent of thousands of dollars was caused by this great in­ undation. Huge boulders of ice made many of the streets impassable for days. Adding to the gloomaand terror of the night all of the electric lights went out and there was no illumina­ tion anywhere save from here and there glimmers of a lantern, oil lamp or candle. Trouble Anticipated This Y^ear. Owing to the immense thickness of ice, dwellers along all rivers are an­ ticipating ice gorges when the streams break up. Reports state from yarious Ijolnts along the Susquehanna, Dela­ ware and Hudson rivers, where the gorges usually form, all kinds of pre­ cautionary steps are being taken meet these expected emergencies. Iron-nosed Hudson rives tugs, under the direction of local authorities, are endeavoring to break up the ice where gorges are likely to form in that riv­ er.

MACHINE DRIVES RAILRWSPIKES Electricity and Gasoline Bid F a ir to Revolutionize Railroad ' Work of That S o rt SAVES MUCH TIME AND LABOR Railroad Auto Candes an Electric Generator to Operate Electrical T o d s in Use on the Rock Island Railroad. The latest thing in railroading is the use o f a Gasoline Electric Tool Car which is really a gasoline auto­ mobile running on the rails like a hand-car and carrying an electric generator to operate the electric tools which have to a great extent super­ seded manual labor on the Rock Is­ land Railroad. The motive power for the car is supplied by a 30 horsepow­ er gasoline engine, and the electric power is furnished by a 6.5 kilowatt Crocker-WIheeler generator. A kilo­ watt is equal to 1.34 horsepower. This machine, therefore, generates nearly 9 horsepower. The electric tools which it is designed to operate are two electric spike screwing machines, six electric drills, an electric saw for rails, and portable emery wheels. This is th e equlpment.carried on each If necessary this railroad automo­ bile can pull additional cars or ten­ ders to carry spikes, extra cable, or additional tools and men. Prom 1% to 2 seconds’ time only la required to drive a spike with the spike screwing machine, as against 8 to 10 minutes- per man driving one spike by hand in the old way. It has been found that soft wood ties can be utilized with th e 's a m e degree of safety as hardwood by using screw spikes, and curve troubles are largely eliminat­ ed. The constant replacing of loos­ ened drive spikes in ties is avoided, and there is consequently less rotting of ties caused by spike holes. Extra lengths of cable are carried with plug-in switches every twenty feet so that the electric tools can be used as far as a quarter o f a m ile from the car. Thus repairs can be effected promptly and at high speed, and the big steam locomotive can puff tri­ umphantly on its way thanks to the vigilance and efficiency of the little Electric Gasoline Tool Car. wrecking crane and several engines.

SHOT AT COAL THIEF. Erie Detective Fired at Fiig-itive in Newburgh. Newburgh, March 4.— Discovering two men-, in the act Of stealing coal from an Erie car on a siding near' the coal yard at the south end of the city this afternoon, Erie Detective Charles Brown arrested one of-them, but the other escaped. Brown emp­ tied his revolver at the fugitive, but the latter placed a freight car' be­ tween him self and the flying bullets and succeeded in getting away. The man who was arrested is Ste­ phen Pelek, an Austrian, aged 25 years. He is charged with larceny. Numerous complaints have been made about thefts of coal from the yards adjoining the Erie Railroad. Detective Brown two nights ago dis­ covered a mian coming out of one of the coal yards with a bag of anthra­ cite on his back and wanted to ar­ rest him but the owner of the coal yard would not appear against him.

Wonderful Ijand o f Palestine, Tb6l‘ W h ole World in a Nutshell, iMade Doubly Interesting In This Hlustrated Bible. ^ Geography is defined as the scienc«> that describes the surface of th » earth and its divisions into contin-’ ents, and generally speaking, not; many of us are likely to go m o r » deeply into the sutoect. Most Of W know the boundaries of our ow», state, or at least our own county, b n l w e little realize the educational value to be gained from an occasion-^- al hour devoted to reading of o th ^ r lands. Take, for Instance, Paieo which is described as a narrow strl^ of country at the eastern end of th « Mediterrai,......i .stretching north. and south one hundred ‘ and fo r t y miles, and from thirty to forty m ile* east and west, covering In its entiretT an area of cnly twelve thousand square miles. Why, m ost of O'ur- states cover from, five to ten tim e * as much space, the state of Texa*- aolne containing more than tw e n ty tim es the area of Palestine. Of all o f the lan^s of the earth,, Palestine is one of the most interest-* ing, for in this sinall country orig­ inated a volum e that is fam iliar t»- all— the Bible. It has often been at., question of wonderment that such & small portion of our earth could b® instrumental m i*roducing a work so universally known.

The total depart­ ment estimate o f the corporate stock budget in 1912 is $2,532,000. The sanatorium at Otisville was opened six years ago, and was looked upon at first as an experiment. It has proved to be an unqualified suc­ cess, according to Commissioner Le­ derle, and it is the belief of the Board of Health that provision should be made a t once for a similar institu­ tion. It is argued that the new sana­ torium should be near the city be­ cause patients suffering from tubercu­ losis in the second or third stages, but •who are in fairly good physcical con­ dition, could be taken there. There are a large number of such patients in New York \who are willing to go to a sanatorium, but have a horror of a hospital as a place of last resort. Improvements to cost $105,000 are recommended for the present sanator­ ium ait Otisville, which includes the purchase of additional land, con­ structing and improving roadways, paths and fencing, the erection of a staff house and nurses’ home, a new laundry building and an anti-toxin horse stable. The demand for antitoxin of vari­ ous kinds has increased until $20,000 is necessary for a stable at Otisville for the antitoxin horses. At present they are in a farm barn. It is desired to erect a fireproof stable for the horses, which usually number about 50. The proposed stable site is near th e laboratoi'j' and vacc*»e stable.
