Not Believed Commonwealth
Will Have Difficulty in
Proving Murder Charge.
GOVERNOR AWAITS NEWS
Satisfied, However, That Baldwin
Detectives Got Right Men
in Oc> Moincs.
While Oovornor Mann received no
word yesterday regarding the capture
of Sldna Allen and Wesley Edwards
from W. G. Baldwin, the head of Bald?
win-Felts Detectives. Inc.. who Is in
Des Moincs, he seels confident that tho
report Is correct. The Governor knew
that the officers had been tracing tho
fugitives through a girl with whom
Wesley Edwards had been correspond?
ing. Mr. Baldwin took some of his
men to Iowa with him. and tho Gov?
ernor expected dovclopmi nta within
the next few days.
All along, it has been expected thero
would be no trouble about the convic?
tion of Sldna Allen of the murder of
Judge Thornton U Mansie. His flight
and long efforts to escape .lust Ice will
Inevitably tell against him when he
comes to trial. Besides, he has been
known as the ablest of the Allen fam?
Sldoa's Pnrt in Murders.
On the morning of the courthouse
shooting at HUlsvllle, Sldna Allen,
with his nephew, Claude Swanson Al?
len, was standing on a bench close to
th>- door to the Judge's private office.
The events of tho fateful hour havo
been rehearsed so many times In the
repented trials that the facts can bo
definitely stnted. When Floyd Allen,
the convicted prisoner at the bar,
arose und announced that he would not
go to Jail, a shot rang out from tho
northeast corner of the courtroom.
This shot was tired by Claude Swan
Judge D. W. Bolen. Carroll County's
leading citizen, saw him tire it, and
saw the lint and dust By from Judge
Massle's shoulder. This was the only
one of the judge's wounds which could
have been fatal. Tune after time
Judge Bolen has reiterate.1 the state?
ment on the wltn-ss stand that the
situation admits of no mistake?he
saw Claude Allen nre the fatal shot. In
the next moment Sldna Allen's pistol
rann out with a shot, which struck
judge Masflte In the arm. The Judge
had turned when he received the first
'bullet, and saw the second One flrrd.
In his dying moments he s&Jd that
Sldna Allen shot him, but It Is gen?
erally thought he supposed this, seeing
Sldnn Allen rife the second shot.
After the shooting had become gen?
eral. Sjdnn Allen leaped from the bench,
followed by his nephew, and advanced
to the Jury box. between the bench
and the bar. Turning, with a smile
on his face, he fired one more bullet
Into the body of the dying jurist. Then
he left the courtroom, to engage In
a duel on the outside with Clerk Dex?
Wesley Who on Bench.
The part played by Wesley Ed?
wards Is no less Important. Ho was
on n bench with Victor M Allen, Ms
cousin, at about ,the centre of the
north side of the room. He fi"t Into
the affray almost as soon as it began,
llrin;; at the olHcers of Iii? Ci/prl, who
had urojupcd themselves together near
the sin-rill's se.it Jumplnc fi"m the
bench. Wesley Edwards walked to the
bar and put tils pistol across it, lirlng
i at closer range.
