transferred to the freight arils in tins ell)
about a eir ago. About six months ago

and the cue of his sisters devolved upon
him lhe) removed to tluscit) and two of
tin in toiiud employment, while a)ounger
sister. Katie, kept house for and w as sup
ported In him.
The cause, the ciiciimstaiices and the
particulars of the murder are as )et eti
v eloped in piofound mystery. The fact
that there were no marks ot a struggle or
traics of hliMsl at the spot where the bod
was found gives color to the theor) that
the deed was committed elsewhere and the
bod) brought there to avert suspicion and
mislead the punishment of justice. There
is iiiut.li buncombe and rubbrsh current in
the form of theorus. A paper published
)esterda) the stateuit lit that the night
target man. Smith, saw three
men carr) ing something across
the tracks neai the ioiut larl) Sunda)
morning, which Might ha.e been the bod)
of a man. Smith testihecl to nothing of the
sort 'at the iii'iuest vesterda). The best
evidence is furnished b) the account of the
wrangle and fuss at the corner of Gallagher
and Washington streets, which the in
ipiest ver) clearl) brings out It is in evi
dence that. Inn Bo) le referred to the de
ceased as a "son of a b -h." Here Is mo
tive for crime in this testimon).
It wis rumored for a time 1'iat Mahone)
Iml recentl) received the proceeds frum
the sale of a house and lot belonging to his
father's esta'e at I'rbana. lTpon this belief
the theor) that the murder was committed
'o-luone) was gem rail) circulated, but
dlss-llisl when It was learned that the
proiert) had not et been sold.
Another reKirt Is that Detec live Tom F
Halls, of tin l. B. A W. had emploved Ma
hone) to ait a detective in ball! ing car
thieves, and tint m so doing the latter had
nnde himself objectionable to u ring of
railroad thieves. Detective Halls was seen
last night bv a Kin run rcHrter ami in
terrogated ou this point. He s,aul that all
the eiuplo)es of the I B .1 il'. were by
dnt) bound to guaiil propert) and prevent
theft, but that he hail no special arrange
ment with Maliouey to do an) detective
work. "The fact that he was on da) dut)
would prevent his being of all) special good
to me as a di teclive. Ilesu'es. he was alto-
gcthtrtoo geutle-iuauiieitil for the busl
ness. lienii) was a might) tine joung
man, and 1 am almost inclined to discredit
the statement that he drank even a glass or

Coroner's llennett'i, OtttciNl Investigation
in llemiU XlHlioiiey lleAth.
Coroner Bennett commenced his inquest
upon the miirdir of Dennis Maliouey, Sun
day, and continued it over Monday. Con
siderable testimon) of importance was elic
ited, but little that Is sufficiently coherent
to form a sustained theory, as yet, as to the
murder. A gri it deal of circumstantial
evnh nee was accumulated.
The testiinoii) of M iry. Katie and Han
nah Maliouey, sisters of the deceased, was
nrst taken. Mary testihed that she saw
hiui at supper time Saturday evening and
saw nothing unusual about his manner.
She said that she never knew of him carry
ing weapons, and that when he started out
after .supper lie had but hfty cents. She
saw hiui sitting at the Lagonda house at 10
o'clock In company with two young men
whom she had heard were the Huston
brothers. Hannah, who lives at Levy's,
also saw hiui at the same time. Katie, who
kept house for- him, could give no addi
tional testimony, other than that he was
generally at home at 11 o'clock.
By far tbe most Important testlmoay
taken at the liuiuest was that of Andrew
N'ealan. It is as follows: J live on Wash
ington street, lietwc en Gallagher and Lin
den avenue. On in) wiy home last Satur
day night, when I got to Chris Selzer's
boarding house. It w is live minutes after 12
o'clock. I started on: as I came to Coc ney's
building, there I met Mike Do)Ie, ami this
fellow that got killed and another fellow
1 didn't know any of them but Mike, and
bid him good evening and passed on; and
as I turned in lietween Dick McBieen's
and another house, to go up home, I met
several parties, bid them good
evening and stopiied there and
talked. One of them was Jim Ito)Ieand
two boarders of Chris. Seize r's, one named
George something and the other I don't
know. Those othi r three li Hows across at
Coonej's came across too. Tins little stone
cutter. Mattle Farrel, was around talking
and rutting up, being just drunk enough to
be right smart. I told him to go liou,e;
that lhe cops would get hiui if he didn't.
Then he wanted tne to take him home.
Some started, and one of these hoarders
said to me, "And), the) call oj a scab
here." I answered Hint 1 didn't give a
dam; that 1 didn't den) where 1
worked that I worked at the
malleable shops for m) own living. 1 and
the little stone-cutter "tarled on to his
boardiiig houso When we got as far as
the stone-) ard he wanted to rest and we
both sat down. Prettv soon one of Christ.
Selzer's boarders came clown and said the)
had jumped on him for a scab After I
left and wanted to go back, I refused.
Then Mike Do)le sort of apologized for
calling me a scab, but I ansvveicd I didn't
mind. Well, this Jim llojle was going to
call me out to one side, but I said he could
see mo right where I was If be
nanted me. He commenced to blow off
about a seib. and Used violent language. I
did not answer. Doyle and the other two
stepped up about this time. Jim Bojle
was on the right side of me. Christ Selz
er's boarder was right next to him to Ms
right side and the man that got killed was
right in front of me next to him. I was
standing no against the home Do)le was
standing at the right side of the man who
got killed. The other man besides llojle
and the one killed was standing b) the
side of Do)Ie and right over
in) left shoulder The stone
cutter was sitting in Du k Mclireen's door
step. The man that got killed m uie the
remark to Christ. Selzer's boarder that thev
called him a scab. The conversation again
became general ou the scab question, and I
repeated that it didn't matter to me. The
man that got killed said he didn't like that
way of doing. I forgot to sa) that while I
was talking to Bo)Ie 1 asked him who that
tall man was (meaning the deceased). He
replied that lie didn't know who the
was that he was a stranger to
hiui (Bo)le). As I made the remark
that the talk almiit scab wouldn't
raise any fuss, the fellow at my lett I sup
pose the fireman the) talk about said to
Mike Do) le: "Some fellow hit that little
fellow on the steps" Then Mike Do)Ie.
Jim Boleand the fellow that got killed
took after him. 1 couldn't see what kind
of a man it was tlie) took after. I got out
onto the railroad and watched them as far
as I could see. They were going down to
ward the bridge. 1 went back to see If the
little man was hurt, but he had nothing but
a little mark on the forehead. After a
while 1 saw a man coming down Gallagher
street, and when he came close, 1 recog
nized It as this Jim lt.nle I said to him:
"Did )ou catch him, J nil".'" He said:
"Catch him'.' We did something else." I
said: "Vou didn't hurt him." and Bovle
replied: "We left marks on him, and he
won't hit another man soon " I asked
what had become ot Mike Do)Ie. and he
sajs he "didn't know where the they
went reckon they made their sneak." He
puiieti oiiniu waicrno pst what
was and said: "1 must be going." I savs,
"you going out tonight'.'" and he said "in
the morning." I then went up and went
tobed. Bo)le was all in a fever and
seemed much excited all the time we were
talking. He was sweating violent)). I
said that If the) caught that fellow the)
would near! kill him. 1 talked some to
in) sister, Ji mile Xealsou. She answered
tha) Uo)le was a mean cuss anwa). The
fellow that got killed seemed to want to
settle the thing and make out there was

about a train length apast I siw two men
come mnnlngdow n through the) ard. The)
crossed over the tracks some distance from
the shanty and went be) oud a small bank
located there. When they were out of

down the track and go down the same
bank. After the) were gone some time I
heard a noise as though some one was
throwing nicks. I also heard the barking
of a lirge dog. Knew none of the parties
and cannot describe them, but they were
white men. The third mm wore a light

ARRESTS AND SUSPECTS.

A number of arrests have been made. As

p -eseut case Is no exception. Officer Kur-

was found In his KmessIon, which. Judged
by Its size and shape, could have made the

IS BUI LK THF M N ?
It begins to look more and more as
though Jim Boyle were either the assassin
of Dennis Mahoney. or has a criminal
knowledge of the murder. Bo)le is known
to be at his home at Tiffin, having left the

Despite the inclemency of the weather
on the Fourth, the celebration at the Fair
grounds purely as a celebration was an
immense success, by far the best out-door
entertainment ever given In SpringheM.
On account of the bad weather the crowd,
although numbering probably n.COO pan
admissions, was not large enough to pay
the enormous expense which Messrs. Wald
man and Middleton were compelled to go
to. and the result was that the
celebration was a failure hnanciailv.

This is the first exhibition of the kind, to
the writer's knowledge, that hasbeen given
in Springneld for man) jears, at which
beer has not been sold. 1 he managers, al
though the) could have sold the beer prlv
ilege for at least SSto, concluded not to
have any intoxicating liquors on the
grounds. The result was that no moie
orderly or quiet crowd ever assembled on
the fair grounds. Xot an arrest was made,
not a tight occurred and there was not even
the least bit of disorder. This speaks In
worils of high praise for both the crowd in
attendance and the managers.
Even part of "the programme was carried
out to the letter with the exception of the
game ot base ball, and the two teams made

The wrestling match between William
Muldoou and the Jap was a magnificent
contest. At 5 o'clock the athletes
stepped Into the ring prepared for
them, and were greeted with
prolonged applause. Muldoon wore pink
tights with maroon trunks, while the Jap
wore black tights with grc-eu trunks.
The match was fur the best two bouts In
three. Muldoon won the first fall in S
minutes after a tremendous struggle. The
Jap's remarkable skill made him a favo
rite over his big antagonist, and when he
won the second bout in 4'tj minutes the
crowd cheered him enthusiastically. The
hnal bout lasted 7 minutes and resulted In
favor of Muldoon.
The match was by far the finest athletic
exhibition ever given In Springfield and
w as more than worth the price of admission.
The bring of the (iattltng gun was anoth
er excellent feature of the programme. The
gun was operated by a squad from Batter)
L, this city. Few of the spectators ever
before had an) conception of the murderous
work the gun Is capable ot doing and thai
part of tlie exhibition was much enjo)ed.
The Champion City Guards' fancy drill
formed a fitting close for the programme.
Their work was admirable and showed the
care and time that Captain Wagner
ami his officers have devoted to
their work. The chase with hounds
after an escaped slave was made while the
guards were drilling. The entertainment
throughout was excellent and reflected much
credit upon the management.
