WOECE3TEH, Mass., April 24. Phillip
L. Moen dieit ia this city yesterday.' Mr.
Moen's death was due to a paralytic shock
sustained a weet ago. He was born ia
Wilna, X. Y., Xov. 23, 1S24. He was at
the head of the great wire works of Wash
bum & Moen located in this city, and
also in processor erection at Waukegan,
31s. He was prominent ia social, politi
cal and religious circles, and Worcester's
foremost citizen, lie leaves a widow, one
(son and two daughters.
That Doc Wilson Episode.
Mr. Moen was well known not only in
New England, but in the country at large,
from his great business interests and also
irom the coupling of his name with Dcc"
Wilson in the famous Moen-Wilson en
tanglement, which has always been a
nystery and probably always will be. Two
trials resulted from it. Beth were actions
c n contract, brought by Wilson to recover
JlOO.OoOfrom Mr. Moeu.
The Chec k Were All night.
At the fitt trial the jury disagreed. A
new trial was granted, an4 Mr. Moen won
t le case. T.u- fact that Mr. Moen wa
p lyinc Wilson large sums money was
first brought before the public by checks
drawn by Mr. Moen payable to Wilson
v hich were questioned at the bank. The
n .wspaper men elicited the information
fiora Mr. Moen and his attorneys that the
cl:eck were all right and that he had
paid Wilson the amounts of the checks
a total of several hundred thousand
Bat Why Did He ray Them?
WHson was a coachman iu Worcester,
er.iployed by the late Lucius W. Kaowk-s.
Mr. Mrven was an aristocrat far renwve.l
fr m Wilsca in the social pl m?. Simo
c'.i.imcd that Wilson was an illegitimate
so j, but deercr thinking people scoffed at
th. sides. Mr. M.ica would say nothing
on the subject, lie said that it was a mat
ter of business, pure and simple, and was
uoae of the public's business.
Mh.it Wilson Swore To.
Wilson st;. ted that ia 15s: three suits
were brought against Moen o;ie by Bemis
1i. Kngley for the seduction of his daugh
ter, one by Hattie H. Kngley for bre.ich-rf-
ronus of marriage, and one. by Ilatt!2
L. Wethercll for breach-cf-promise, each
suit bwing for $50,000. lie met Mr. Moen,
ho stated, at Moosehead lake, ia August
of t hat year, at the latter's riquest, and
Mr. Moen told him the case must ba set
tie h As be did not wish, his name con
net ted with Wilson's, Mr. Moen offered
hiri $100,000 with which to settle the cases.
The Mystery Stilt Exists.
Mr. Moeu claimed that he only loaned
the money to Wilson, and had promissory
notes for all but the flOO.uoo given him in
checks, 5S3.000 of which was recovered.
One story especially was very sensational,
robins; up the name of the first Mrs.
Mcc-n in the affair. Hut the old curse who
was in the Washburn family for years,
and with Mrs. Moen up to her death, ut
terly and completely contradicted tue
claim. The mystery still exists.
