On a charge he was unjustly fined by a magistrate for a motor vehicle violation for which he denied guilt, Kenneth V. Woodward, Uniontown, was granted an appeal by Judge H. S. Dumbauld who approved the petitioner's $100 surety furnished by C. A. Woodward. In the petition Woodward declared that oft January 9 he received notice, by registered mail, from .Justice of Ihe Peace Howard Dunn. Franklin township, that an information had been lodged by Trooper K. E. Smith charging Woodward with driving an automobile in a reckless manner along the public roads in Franklin township on January 3. Woodward sot forth a hearing before the squire was held January 18 when the magistrate adjudged the defendant guilty and directed him to pay a $25 fine and costs. "The petitioner avers he was not guilty of the offense charged and that the evidence produced at the hearing did not Justify the magistrate in finding the petitioner guilty and imposing penalty, therefore, but on the contrary, the said magistrate, at the hearing, received testimony which did show the petitioner had not violated the Act of Assembly arid was not guilty of the offense of reckless driving," the petition sets forth. Also, it was stated a legal question arose at the time of the hearing over the "introduction of hearsay testimony introduced by the Commonwealth for the purpose of obtaining a conviction; but, notwithstanding the objection of the petitioner and his counsel, the magistrate received and edmitted the hearsay testimony." Woodward, through his counsel, contends "the conviction was contrary to law, was unjust, illegal and unwarranted and resulted from the oppressive action of the magistrate in the conduct of the hearing." Citizens of Georges township, near Fail-chance, petitioned court for viewers to view a proposed road 1,300 feet in length, leading from a point on the east side of Main street, at the division line between the borough of Fairchance snd Georges township, and ending at a point in Peach street. The petitioners declare they labor under great inconvenience for want of this particular stretch of road. Judge Cotlom directed Viewers- Henry C. Brooke, David E. Bane and Robert D. Warman to look over the site and make a report to the court on the first Monday of March. Signing the petition were Oscar Cooley, Mrs. Oscar Cooley, Pearl Artis, Amelia Artis, Mabel Artis, Ervan Artis, Andy Lyekowski, Emilia Lyekowski, Elizabeth Marano, Russell Marano, Raymond Abel, Ethel Abel, Boyd D. Hustead and Nellie Hustead. Judge Cottom, in an order handed down appointed Attorney Ben F. Bortz to act as master and take testimony in the divorce action instituted by Francis P. Davis against Margaret E. Davis. William Spalter, Fayette City, -who had been ill for several months, is back on the job again as tipstaff in the courtroom of Orphans Court Judge Ross S, Matthews. Charging his wife is not a fit person to have custody of their three children, John Bosso, Luzeme township, filed a petition on which Judge Dumbauld set 10 o'clock Friday, February 10, for a habeas corpus hearing on the issue involved, Bosso reveals he and Mary Bosso are divorced and that their three children, Kathryn, Roseanna. 10, and Oominick, eight, are living with their mother at Merrittstown. The father declares his former wife is not a fit and proper person to have custody of the children, that her conduct is such as to be a bad example for them and, as a result, they are being reared in an atmosphere which will eventually result in their rclinquency. In an order handed down Judge Harry A. Cotlom appointed Attorney Bernard John, youngest member of the county bar, as auditor to audit recounts of the county law library committee which were filed recently showing receipts and expenditures for the year just closed. The appointment was made upon rrquest of the library committee. John Semrak, who was born Oc- iobcr S, 1917, at Juniata, Dunbar township, was granted permission of Knyette county courts to legally i-hangp his n;imc to Steve Edward Shnmmck in an order handed down by Judge W. Russell' Can-. The petitioner declared that, since birth, he has been known to his family and friends as Steve Edward Semrak (Shamrock) but that fit the time the midwife sent the report to Harrisburg, his name was mistakenly given as John. Insurance papers, lie set forth, carry the name of Steve Edward and that this name was also carried on all school records. Mrs. Mary Varney, Leith, has filed answer to charges contained in a divorce action instituted by her husband, John Verney, also ot Leith, in which he accuses his wife of cruel and barbarous treatment and indignities to person, alleging she struck him with a poker, nagged and threatened him and refused to cook and keep house for him. In an initial petition the woman reveals she brought information for desertion and non-support against her husband and that this action is now pending before the courts. She asked for a rule on Verney to show cause why he should not pay her $250 counsel lees and 5100 additional for expenses incurred in securing witnesses incident to her preparation for the divorce hearing. The wife denies she is guilty of Ihe charges set forth by her husband but, on the contrary, counter-charges that he has threatened her with bodily violence on numerous occasions, has refused to support her, has cursed her, quarreled with her without reason, withdrew from her company nnd lived in a separate part of the home, that lie drinks to excess and has forced her to depend upon her sons for maintenance. Citing these offenses in her answer, the wife petitioned the court to dismiss the divorce action.
