6THE CHAKGE OF BURGLAR! SUSTAINED
fFItOMA BTJLTT COEEESTOKDKST.3
rSosiEBSET, May 30. The grand jury this
fspSorning returned a true bill against Jack
ie ! son and Marshall Sullivan, Decatur Tasker
Sand Charles J. lewis for assaultand battery
with intent to kill old Christian Xoder, who
made the inlormation. It is forbidden by
the rules or creed of his sect to go to law,
and the much-abused Amish patriarch could
not be persuaded in the first instance to
make the charge of burglary against the
four men. That was doney Hugh Miller,
a merchant of Summit Postoffice, adjacent
to Mr. Yoder's house.
It was a very difficult matter to get Mr.
Xoder to make this last charge, but alter he
had been in court for a time his feelings be
came sufficiently stirred up, and he con
sented to have the information drawn up in
his name. The gentleman who made the in
formation for the first -charge, Mr. Miller, is
one of those who interested themselves in
the McClellandtown robbers, and he was on
the point of having Tasker and Lewis arrested
as two of the gang who had been guilty of so
-many depredations in Fayette county and the
-neighboringportions of West Virginia and
r Maryland. He had learned they .were In
; Somerset county, but before he could make the
' final move the crime against Yoder had been
committed and the men had left.
s SUEE OF TWO OF THE PAETIES.
r Mr. Miller had no doubt whatever as to at
jte least two of the guilty parties. He went to
.at (work on the case with others, and was later
'joined by ex-Sheriff Kyle, who went into the
- matter with all his might, and led the party
- that made the arrests of the eight men who
, have been on trial.
: The charge on which the two SulMans and
Tasker and Lewis were tried is burglary. The
other four were charged with beinj accessories
before the fact. This forenoon, after the evi
dence was all In, Grant Sean was -given his
freedom on a nolle prosequi The bulk of the
evidence against him was in the form of things
he had said to others, and it was shown that
the greater parlor perhaps all of it. had been
spoken in jest. The testimony as to his former
good character was entirely in his favor. His
intimacy with Marshall Sullivan was because
the latter was married to his foster-sister.
The evidence against William B. Hill was
also of a character that failed to prove him an
. accessory to the Xoder outrage before the fact,
but it indicated very strongly that he was on a
friend.y footing with the four apinstrhom
the principal charge was made, that they vis
ited his bouse and stored things there concern
ing which be admits be did not inquire very
closely. District Attorney Bissecker, there
fore, in the usual legal form, had
HILL DEOPFED FEOM THE CASE
. 'this moming, bnt at the same time had him
held under $1,000 bail to answer to the next
regular term of court, the charge being an ac
cessory to the burglary at Xoder's atter the
fact and a receiver of stolen goods. Argument
as to whether there is sufficient evidence to
hold him for trial is to be made at the Argu
"ment Court immediately following the present
term of the Criminal Court.
y Tasker and Lewis are the other two of the de
fendants who were placed on the stand to-day
in their, own defense, and there was no attempt
by their counsel to prove an alibi or for that
.matter, anything else in their behalf. A num
ber of witnesses were produced, however, to
show that on the night of the Yoder outrage
the two Sullivans were helping to celebrate the
birthday of their sister, Mrs. Dlnsmore. One
of the witnesses was Henry Sullivan, brother
of-two of he defendants. He is learning the
trade of a molder at TJniontown. On the cross
examination General Koontz, to destroy his
'wadmiihat he 'had served 6years In the
'-' Western Penitentiary for robbery. Sullivan,
credibility in the eyes of the jury,, forced him
Jr-ho was but 17 years old at the time, was one
rWCtne gang wno naa oeen empiojea oy.a-man
- to rob him. They were to have received S200
.each to rob him of 52,500. He. of course, was
to have the bulk of the money.
Jackson Sullivan, when on the stand, con
fessed that he was another of the party who
robbed the paymaster. He also served six and
a half years in the penitentiary for it.
HAD A BEMMING INFLUENCE.
It is a somewhat remarkable fact that his
penitentiary, experience seemed to hare a re
fining influence on Jackson Sullivan. In neat
ness of dress and smartness of manners he is a
strong contrast to the other defendants. -His
brother Henry also seemed to hare profited by
his incarceration, and the two, so far as dress
and manners go, are a credit to Warden
The majority of the witnesses who went on
the stand for the defense admitted having
beard the four principal defendants and Hill
spoken of as the McClellandtown gang. Jo
seph Paul was the only witness,not a relative of
the Sullivans, who was at Mrs.Dinsmore's birth
day party and saw the Sullivan brothers there.
Peter Guseman, the only other person there
beside the Sullivans, is their second cousin and
stepfather of Tasker. He knew nothing of
Taster on the fatal date, and no evidence was
given by anyone to show it or the whereabouts
of Lewis. He had lived a mile from Cool
Spring, the reputed headquarters of the Mc
Clellandtown gang, but had never beard of it
as such until he saw it In the newspapers after
Jackson Sullivan, in his testimony, said that
after leaving the penitentiary he went to Ala
bama, where he remained three mouths, then
lived in Cincinnati for three months went to
Michigan and worked at making brooms for
about three weeks, and, not liking the work,
went to Chicago; after looking aronnd there
for a couple of days he returned borne to Pay
ette county; hunting has been his principal
occupation since then. In this way be ac
' counted lor
THE LOADED FOWLING PIECE
- which he said was his, found at Hill's house,
- but he didn't explain what kind of game he
expected to bring down with the 20 sings in
addition to the bird-shot found in each shell
He also denied that it was cocked when found.
. He and his brother Marshall denied having
been in the neighborhood of Yodel's on the
. night of the crime, and located themselves, in
stead, at Mrs. Dmsmore's birthday party, say
ing they remained there over Sunday.
Jackson Sullivan and Hill denied the barri
caded condition of the tatter's house when the
arrests were made, or that any resistance had
been contemplated. They also denied the Ian-
guage attributed to Tasker by Sheriff Kyle,
who stated that when he was being handcuffed
to Hill be exclaimed: "Iwish we had fought
until we bad died. We had intended to, but
the women made us surrender."
Jackson Sullivan admitted one of the re
volvers found at Hill's bouse was his, after try
ing hard to dodge a direct answer.
Hill denied that when his house was sur
rounded and he and his wife came out on the
porch that he wanted to get away from its im
mediate neighborhood because those inside
were coing to shoot. He said that his language
at that time referred to the persons outside
" who, he feared, intended to fire on the house.
Hill said all the parties at his house when
the arrests were made were merely there on a
visit. The Sullivan's are his uncles; their
sister, bis aunt, was one of those present be
side his wife, Lewis and Tasker and a Miss
Deets. They were not staying there, he
claimed, and Lewis and Tasker bad only been
there once before yesterday. However, Mrs.
, Hill admitted Lewis and Tasker to be
BOASOING WITH THEM,
and Hill admitted that the first time they were
at bis house tbey stayed several days, because,
he said, their feet were sore with walking. He
was very ignorant concerning the bundles they
brought to bis bouse, and hadn't known that
the stockings .identified yesterday by Miss
Baker were there.
Marshall Sullivan admitted that 15 years ago
he was in jail in Somerset for eight months for
assault and battery, and was twice aided to
The defendants placed on the stand flatly
denied any knowledge of the Yoder ontrare.
Tasker was not put on the stand to disprove
the language alleged to have been used by him
when being handcuffed to Hill.
The Commonwealth labored in its cross-examination
to show that the witnesses for the
. defense were biased by relationship or other
. connection with tbe prisoners, and to thus cast
donbt on their evidence.
Mr. Uhe opened for the defense after tbe
. testimony was all In. He was followed by Dis
trict Attorney Biesecker, who analyzed the
testimony. Mr. Holbert closed for the defense
andMr. Koozerfor the prosecution. General
Koontz, for the prosecution, made no address.
He has been occupying his time during tbe
trial in examining and crow-cxaniluing the wit

THE TJMBERQEE TRIAL BEGUN.
A Plea of Not Gnllur Eutered-A Third Sen
sation (o Come Up.
tFEOK X BTXTT COBBISPONDEOT.J
Somebset, May 30. After the jury in
the Yoder case had retired the charge
agftiust the Nicely brothers, of the murder
and robbery of Henry TJmberger, was taken
Up. The defendants pleaded not guilty, 'and
. elected to be tried separately.
This murder took place In Jenner township.
The principal witnesses lor the prosecution are
Miss Ella Steam and Nannie Horner, the latter
aged about 10 years. They are not permitted
to go ont without a male escort, for
loar of foul play. The relatives of the accused
men who are here look like educated and re
fined people. Something like 83,000 in money
and bonds was the amount of the robbery.
The grand jury is engaged In weighing the
evidence against George and David Shaulls,
charged with the murder of their father, an
aged man, and their youthful stepmother. The
latter was shot and the former hung to give
an appearance, it is alleged, of. murder and
Naval Officers Do Not Apprehend Any
Trouble .In the Behrlnff Ken The
Available Forco of the Voiced
States on t bo Pacific Coast.
"Washington-, May 30. The warlike
dispatches from British Columbia with re
card to expected trouble between the United
States and Great Britain over the Behring
Sea seal fisheries are generally discredited
by officers of the Navy Department, It is
pointed out that no officer of rank suffi
ciently high to make him acquaintedwith
the English Government's purposes would
under any circumstances be so foolish as
to talk in the manner stated in the dispatch
from Victoria, B. C. A prominent naval
officer, in speaking on the subject, said that
if such a talk did occur the speaker was
some subaltern who had drunk too much
beer and lost his head, and had by high talk
given his auditor to believe something start
ling was going to take place, and that he
knew all about it The United States had
no reason to apprehend any difficulty.
Great Britain assuredly would not commit
any overt act of violence in case her sealers.
were arrested wimoui warning mis govern
ment of its intentions. A warning that
Great Britain would by force dispute the
sovereignty of Behring Sea had never been
communicated to the United States, and
this alone showed the improbability of the
story. It might be that the three vessels
named were going to Behring Sea, though
that was by no means certain. Their
duties there, however, would probably
consist in nothing more than keeping a
watch on the situation to prevent their
citizens from being wantonly ill used and
giving the sealers good advice. If our ves
sels attempted anything that was un
warranted it might be that the British of
ficers would feel called upon to interfere.
The United States sent vessels to the New
Foundland fisheries each year to look after
American interests, and the British vessels
probably had a similar mission in Alaskan
waters, presuming that they would go there.
The United States naval force at present
available in Behring Sea consists of the
Bear, the Thetis and a revenue cutter.
These vessels are of no use for actual war
fare and are simply policemen of the sea.
The Adams and the Iroquois are at Hare
Island and could be sent to sea at short
notice if circumstances demanded it. The
Charleston is also at San Francisco, but it
will be some time before she will be ready
to go into commission. She has demon
strated, it is said, that she is an
excellent boat, but has not yet fulfilled the
contract requirements, and some changes
are necessary in her machinery before she
can come up to the conditions of the con-
fan.com nP w.inF. Z llTr.Z
tract. Even if these requirements were
waived under stress of an emergency it
would take some time to fit ""Ine" Charleston
out for service. As has been already stated.
however, naval officers do not think the-
situation at all alarming or even threaten
ing. The Behring Sea fisheries, they are
confident, will not precipitate a conflict be
tween the United States and Great Britain.
TDBNED UP AFTER THIGH YEARS.
A Harpoon of the 1859 Season Found In a
rsrrcin, teleoejlm to the disfatch.i
New London, Conn., M"ay30. Captain
X. Nathan Rogers, an old whaleman of this
city, has just returned from a cruise among
the oil barrels and try kettles on New Bed
ford's wharves. He says the absorbing topic
among whale' fishermen there is the arrival
in that city of a harpoon which was taken
from a whale captured in the Ochotsk Sea
last summer by the bark. Cape Horn Pigeon.
The iron bore the name of the ill-fated ship
Thomas Dickason and was as bright and
sharp as when first sunk through the side
of the whale. It had been broken off close
to the shank and was imbedded in the
blubber. This is the first fragment of the
Dickason to return to New England after
30 rears. She sailed from New Bedford on
November 2. 1856, and was lost in the
Ochotsk Sea in the summer of 1859.
Captain Bogers, who is well versed in the
habits of the levithians of the deep, says the
whale must have1 been struck by the Dicka
son on her last cruise in those waters. On
the iron was the name of the maker. Its
brightness is accounted for by the preserva
tive action of the whale's blnbber. The
whale was a large one and proved a good
catch for the Cape Horn Pigeon. .Mr. Will
iam B. "Wing now has the harpoon.
