Judge   Forin   Hears Criminal
Cases at County Court
Naturalization Granted
Two criminal case's occupied the
attention of Judge Forin in tbe County court yesterday morning.
Nick   Perlto charged   With   stabbing
Joe     Colarco, who received a    knife
wound between the third and fourth
rib, pleaded gulltj and was sentenced
in si\ months In jail.
The assault took place during a
drunken brawl which took place among prisoner nnd a party ol companions.
Ben Raglione charged with an indecent offence pleaded not guilty. After
evidence ol Mike Fuoco, Jasper Fu-
oco,    Eugene   Camossl and prisoner,
His Honor found defendant guilty
and sentenced him to two years In
the penetentiary. 0. I'M Gillan ap-
peared for the prosecution. Prisoner
was  undefended.
Raglione has a jail record. He was
sentenced to two years in lfllM for firing a revolver on McKenzie avenue
and is believed to have- also served a
Jail sentence in Nelson.
Naturalization papers were granted
to  E.  J.  Johns.m, engineer, wbo was
horn in Sweden.
In the campaign which the Ohio
railroad made for hither passenger
rates in that state all kinds of statistics were filed with the Legislative
Probably the statistics dealing with
train stops, filed by president Wil-
lard of the Baltimore nnd Ohio wero
among the most interesting, This
memorandum asserted that it costs
Irom $1.35 to $1.85 to stop a passenger train at s Btatlon on the Ohio
roads, or at an average of about
$1.60  a  stop.
Tn otber words says the Wall street
Journal, with a train making 17
stops there would be a cost to thc
railroad' of $37.."0 f.ir the starting
and stopping alone. Among the item
entering into the cost of stopping a
train, the most, important is eonl, as
when a train is stopped the air
brakes nre applied and "-.he coal is
used to generate thc steam which
compresses the air.
There is a grent wear and tear cn
lent because of these stoppages
and the ear wheels, tbe brake shoes
are worn away because of friction,
fn starting after a stop there is a
great expenditure of steam in getting
undi" headway, and there is more
wenr nnd tear on equipment.

In the neighborhood of the Canadian
camps, you will receive the reply
"Yaas—sure" in the accent which

The real excitement of the day is
that of the scouts, who crawl round
cornfields, lie in wet ditches and escape chpture by miracles. A scout
comes    galloping in, pulls up beside
the ollicer who sent him out, and reports. He wastes no time in saluting, but just shakes his head and
says: "Nothin' iloin.'" There is no

otlicers and men understand and respect each  other's   worth.
It is a I'm" si'-.ht to see these Canadian brigades march past on the
Downs, for there are no regiments in

Like their cousins, the Americans,
