Kameniskey explained that about two months ago through the State Department of Labor, he was assigned assigned to a school in Philadelphia to study the barber trade. He said he was obliged to give up the job because he was "too nervous to hold a razor." After leaving Philadel - ) phia. he spent a short time in Har - i risburg and Lancaster and then j went to New York. In the latter I city he ran low of funds and re - ; turned to Scranton a week ago i Monday. His first act was to go to Jessup and draw $128 out of the bank. : Last week he spent much of his i time in company with a girl in ! Wilkes - Barre. lie was in Jessup on Monday. It was that day, he said, that he definitely made up his mind to kill the doctor the following day.

Kameniskey smoked several cigarettes and apparently was unconcerned over the tact that : his end might come in the electric ; chair in Rockview within a shore i time. He made no attempt to con - i ceal any of the facts in connection i with the killing. I Kameniskey s right foot was in - ! jured three years ago while he was employed by the Winton Coal com pany, investigation revealed that ; the bones of the foot were so badly : crushed, that physicians concluded I that the only way to save his life j was to amputate the foot. This was ! done, the operating surgeon being j Dr. J. W. Lyons. Dr. Kelly, as physician physician for the coal company, was j present and subsequently looked I after his interests in adjusting Kam - I eniskey's compensation claim. Dr. ! Kelly had been treating him almost continually since the accident. Kameniskey. Kameniskey. it is said, has on numerous occasions threatened to "get" Dr Kelly. Jessup was in a high state of excitement excitement throughout the afternoon. Authorities were fearful that if the slayer were cantured in the borough violence might follow and they took every precaution to prevene it. Under Under the direction of Sheriff Davis and Burgess Lawler scores of homes and known haunts of Kameniskey were searched, while police in Scranton Scranton also kept a sharp watch on railroad railroad stations for the slaver.

M. Lynch, superintendent of the Farview Hospital for the Criminal Insane, and one of the leading alienists in the state, in a report submitted to District Attorney Harold A. Scragg late yesterday, declares that Russell P. McGarrah, who killed his wife, Dorothy, at their home .on Capouse avenue, March 4, is insane.
