FK1DAY, FEBRUARY 17, last. THTi! POTTRTKR. rONNRT,T,SVrT,T,K. PA. PAGE FIVE. NEWS OF THE COURTS UNION x'OWN, Feb. 17.--The Blue Ribbon committee especially appointed by the couit won a four- month extension o£ time on its investigation into alleged unethical conduct of certain bar members and reputed bribery and corruption in racket circles as the result of an order Monday which carried signatures o£ three common pleas judges. Because its work was unfinished and several important channels of information still remain to be probed, it was learned the committee unanimously agreed that additional time was essential if the report was to have weight in exposing corrupt conditions in Fayette county which testimony, to date, is rumored to have revealed. The order, presented by ex-Judge Thomas H. Hudson, member of the committee, and signed by Judges Harry A. Cottom, H. S. Dumbauld and W. Russell Carr, reads: "On motion ol Edmund H. Heppert, Thomas H. Hudson, Daniel W. McDonald, W. Brown Higbee and J. B. Adams, Jr., it is ordered that the time within which the committee heretofore appointed in the cause on November 16 was directed to report to the court, be and hereby is extended to the first Monday of June, 1939, and it is turther ordered and directed that said committee continue its investigation as heretofore directed with the same powers and duties as granted in the order of appointment November 10, 1938, and the supplemental order of Novem- bsr 25, 1938." Suit '3 recover $729.47 was entered Monday by J. W. Channing, Connellsville, against Ivanora Conway, Connellsville township. In the action, filed with Prothono- tary John J. Brady, the plantiff set forth he had entered into contract with the delendant io carry through certain improvements to the lattei's house. Channing declares he purchased, at his own expense, certain materials, amountins to ?453.72, for which he now seeks payment. He also asks an additional $275.75 lor labor necessary in culminating the contract. Extension o£ time granted the courts' especially appointed Blue Ribbon committee, to permit turther investigation, will not prejudice the right of Attorney Alex Z. Goldstein, under a four-month suspension fiom practice in his profession, to petition court for reinstatement at expiration of his suspension period next month. This was leaned after Judges Harry A. Cottom, H. S. Dumbauld and W. Bussell Can- granted a four-month extension to the Blue Ribbon committee to eliminate necessity of filing a report of their investigation before the first Monday o{ June. However, ex-Judge Thomas H. Hudson, member of the committee who presented the petition yesterday asking for additional time, told the court that: 'When Atloiney Goldstein petitions the court for reinstatement, the committee will make an immediate report--if they have not previously done so." This was taken to mean that should Mr. Goldstein ask the court to reinstate him at the end of the four- month suspension period, the committee, at the same time, would present its report on findings on its investigation into the suspended attorney's conduct as a member ol the bar. The Blue Ribbon committee-composed of Retired Judge E. H. Reppert, ex-Judge Thomas H. Hudson and Attorneys W. Blown Higbee, Dan McDonald and J. B. Adams, Jr.--was appointed three months ago by the court to investigate alleged unethical conduct of bar members as well as rumored bribery and corruption among public officials and officers o£ the law. It was because several channels of information still remain to be probed that the committee sought and obtained an extension on the deadline when they must file a report of their findings with the court. Mortgage in the amount of $6,000 en the property of Goldie Samonas, wife of Steve Samonas, "numbers" pool operator located at 100 Murray avenue, has been executed by B. Brunetti, well-known real estate operator, it was revealed in records compiled in the office of Recorder Pat F. Hyncs. Brunetti recently furnished $500 bond for each of the following persons caught in a raid by c:ty po'ice on Samorms' "numbers" headquarters located one square west of the courthouse in Peter street: Samonas and his bi other, Alex Samonas, Einest Douglas, ECHO Bertollmi, Mike Smith, K. Peios, George Peters, Bernard Ma'y, Samuel Manuel and Frank Canistio. The delendanls face action of the March giand jury on lottery law violations giowmg out of the raid. In addition to new cases, March giand ]ury will be faced with disposition of more than 60 bills carried over to the coming term after mem- beis of the December gland jury weie "kicked out" by Judge H. S Dumbauld for "failing to follow the court's inshuctions," One murder case--against three Connellsville youths, Arthur "King Kong" Royston, Clyde "Blue Top" White and John Turza--has been eliminated from the March trial list since District Attorney James A. Rejlly recently returned the defendants to Westmoreland county to stand trial for the slaying of Naum Acheff, Scottdale storekeeper, who was shot to death December 13 during a holdup of his business place. However, a detainer has been lodged against the trio for future action ol local courts in the holdup- slaying, December 3, of Heniy Foster, 72-year-old Vanderbilt farmer. The case growing out of the Acheff killing was f.rst brought here for trial but was leturned to Westmoreland rounty in the face of a planned protest by county commissioners against taxpayers of this county being forced to shoulder the brunt of expense for a case originating beyond the Fayette county line.
