YOUNG'S STORY DOUBTED1
Detectives Believe That He Was
Neither Robbed Nor Sandbagged. -
All the Evidence Collected Tends
to Prove Thnt Ills Injuries Were
On tho night of March -8, about 10
o'clock, a man ivlio gave his name as
George H. Young, a merchant of Sliennngo,
Va., rushed into Vo. 5 prectinct station
and represented to the police that lie had
been tandbagged and robbed of $U85, and
a gold watch, in tho Capitol grounds. The
case based upon the man's statements was
fully reported in tho Morning Times, and
a carerul Investigation of the circumstances
of tlie alleged robbery -was made by tlie
detectives. Xo arrests were made, how
ever, but since that time evidence hun
come to light which tends to disprove .Mr.
According to tlie man's story, he had
been htopping at tlie homo of Mr. Henry
Burns, No. 51G Seventh stieut southeast,
since inauguration, and had intended go
ing home late on tho night of the alleged
robbery. He said he was returning to
Mr. Burns' residence to bid tlie family
good-by before taking the train, aud while
Hearing the eastern limits or tlie Capitol
grounds he was appioached from behind
by the thief, who threw acid in Ills eyes
to blind him, aud then hit hiin a stunning
blow on the head with a sandbag. This, it
was stated, had rendered him unconscious,
aud while iu that state tlie thief had
searched his pockets and secured tho
jnoncy and watch.
Tlie man had evidently familiarized him
self thoroughly with the tale lie should tell,
for his account of the affair at rlrst given
to the police was very clear and plain.
"When the detectives began to work upon
the cae discrepancies were soon discov
ered. In ills first account JToung hnd stated
that he "was found by a lad j and a gentle
man, and later he said he believed that it
was t"wo men. Xo one was ever found by
the police who had Keen the man lying
.upon tlie sidewalk, as he had stated, and
the police then searched finther for a
clew. Mr. Young had stated that he
was positive thafcno one in the city was
aware of the fact that he carried such
a large sum of money, and his personal
appearance would indicate that he was
entirely without means. It was diFCOvercd
after considerable probing of tlie matter
that the $2S5 Young alleged to have lost
belonged to ids brother-in-law, who is the
proprietor of two stores in adjoining
counties in Viipinla. Fifteen dollars of his
own money Toung had left with his daugh
ter for safe keeping a siiort time befoie
lie claimed to have been waylaid. It was
further developed that tlie man had in
duced his brother-in-law to allow him to
bring the money with him to War Kington,
on the preteiiFe that he might see Mime
goods cheap which It would be advan
tageous to purchase on tlie spotfor cash.
Another interesting feature was un
earthed yesterday which would seem to
indicate a still further motive, for being
robbed. About an hour before Young re
potted that lie had been held up, tie pur
chased for 25 cents, at the Baltimore and
Potomac t-tation an accident policy by
which he was to be the beneficiary to the
amount of $25 per week in ease of injury.
The policy was good for three days only,
and in less than an hour, the man had
been, as he alleges, sandbagged. Further
than this several weeks ago he became
insured in another accidental insurance
company whose policy held good for a
longer time, and by which he was entitled
to $30 per week Mck benefits. These facts
were brought out by the police and yes
terday one of the Insurance companies in
examining tlie cac, refused to pay the
indemnity. J)r. Buinett, of the Emergency
Hospital, also made a careful examina
tion of the man's optic yesterdayand failed
to discover any injury to lilb sight.
To the physicians it was evident thnt
some poibonous Mibhtancc had been rubbed
about, the eye, but none hnd entered, as
would have been the case had the bub
etance been thrown at him, as alleged.
Furthermore, therewercno marks of where
tlie poison should have burned his face and
cheek. Tlie knot on the runn's head, where
he claimed to have been struck by the band
bag. the physicians say, could easily have
been inflicted by himself, by bumping It
against some hard substance.
Since the night of the alleged hold-up
Young lias been staying atthe home of his
friend, and endeavoring to secure tlie
nionev on his accident policies. It is pos
sible that borne developments may follow
which will lead to his arrest.

HIS 'VVIFK X.OVHS ANOTUKK.
"Wliy Jefferson D. Newton lias Sued
for u Divorce.
Jcfrcrson I). Newton, a compositor in the
Government Triiitlng Office, began suit
foruivorce yesterday afternoon against ills
wife, Grace Xewton. charging her with de
sertion. Ills attorney is -Ernest Hoiman.
The bill filed by the husband recounts the
domestic troubles of the couple, and calW
attention to the bad conditions caused by
the discovery or a bunch or fifteen letters,
neatly tied in a muslin apron.
TheXewtons were married July -5, 18SB,
atThe Plains, Fauqulercounty, Va. Shortly
after they came to Washington to live.
0n' of the places at which they boarded
was the house of Mn&Edinonia Moore, Xo.
128 II street northwot, says the husband
They there met J. Watt Chnpin, then a
clerk in the Boston House. After that the
Xewtotib moved toNo. 435 H .street noith
west, and the husband spent most of the
night away from'lils home nnd at work1
For a month he.wtfikcd in this manner,
when ills brother canre around und 'tcok
him away to their" old home in "Virginiu.
Then his brother handed Xewton tlie pack
age of letters.
The letters were all from Chnpin to Mrs.
Newton, nnd, tho complainant bays, were
couched in tlie strongest terms of endear
ment and affection, containing repeated
declarations of love. When Mrs. Xewton
was later fehown the letters, the husband
states, she admitted receiving and answer
ing them, nnd told hlni that her love had
been tiansferred to Chnpin. Mrs. New
ton packed up her trunk and left her hus
band May 10, 1892, aud went to live at
the home of Mrs. Thompson, on II street,
between Twelfth and Thirteenth streets-.
SOLD STOE.KN GOODS TOO CIIEA1
John -H. Williams Held for tlio
John II. Williams was brought before
Judge .Mills yesterday, charged with sys
tematic theft for the pastthree years from
the People's Dispatch Company, by whom
he was employed. '
Ills idea of the value or the goods stolen
by him -was extremely vague, as It was
shown that ror 1,000 cigars woith $30,
he had stolen, he received only $2, and
that thirty pounds or valuable tea, which
he had procured in the same way, hadbcenj
disposed or for $1.25.
There was no question of the prisoner's
guilt, as lie openly acknowledged taking
the articles. He was held in $1,000 ball
for the grand jury.
SCIT OVER A PARTY WALL.
John Mitchell Clnims That. A. A.
Pope Has Encroached on BTisLand.
The alleged wrongful appropriation of
one and a lialf juches or ground was the
cause of an Injunction suit begun yesterday,
in which Judge Cole granted a temporary
restraining order, returnable next Fiiday.
Tho complainant is John Mitchell and the
defendant ib Albert A. Pope, of the Pope
Manufacturing Company. Doth own prop
erty in square 250, bounded by Thirteenth
and Fourteenth nnd II audi streets.
Mr. Mitchell owns lot 14; Mr. Pope owns
lot 13, the one on the south or lot 14. A
house has been erected more than twenty
years on Mr. Mitchell's lot. The south of
the house was built on the north part of
lot 13, now Mr. Pope's property. It has
been used as a party wall between Mr.
MitclieU'b house and the dwelling south
After he bought the lot Mr Mitchell says
he built a stable on the rear end of it,
using the existing "Wall on lot 13 as a
party wall and paying for one-half of it.
Mr. Tope lias begun to erect a new build
ing on Ins property. He needs a heavier
paity wall, lie was going to build the
wall nineincheson theland or Mr. Mitchell,
the latter says. The complainant insisted
that Mr. Pope had no right to locate the
new wall north or the old wall.
They compromised. Mr. Mitchell agreed
to let the wall run over on his piopcrty
six inches. The old wall was torn down.
The new one was begun. Mr. Mitchell
says he now finds that while the wall Mr.
Pope Is erecting is correctly located in
'front, It encioaches for an Inch and a
half on his property in the rear. In this
manner the width of his lot is diminished,
he says. Mr. Pope will not stop building,
Mr. Mitchell asserts, and lie asks the
court to stop him and cause the proper
erection of tho wall.

George W. Stamp, who was some tlmo

It will be remembered that some time

Kramer, who also has large florist's estab
islhmcnt in Anacostla, was constantly be

about 10 or 15 cents a piece. On February

while they were growing, and traced them
from Stamp's hand to Mr. Dueler and other
flower dealers of Washington.
The Indictments are still pending, it Is
