FAIR BUT WICKED.
A Young Michigan Girl's Crim
THBEE STEANGELY SUDDEN DEATHS
followed by a Series of Robberies and an
Attempt to IMow Up Her Home and
Itelatives 'With Dynamite A Confes
sion Implicating Her Lover, but the
Implication Not Credited Dispute
Over Division of the Family Property
the Original Cause of the Trouble.
Hi dso.v, Mich., Aug. 16. Jennie Tabor,
of this place, who was arrested here be
cause her younger brother discovered
twenty dynamite cartridges concealed
about their house, has made a startling
confession. She said she was going to
blow up the house, together with her
brother and sister, to secure the whole of
her dead father's $o,iXH) estate. She ways
she was instigated by her lover, William
Meyers, who also recently compelled her
to 1:0 with him and rob George Goodwin's
residence, and with the money they got
buy the dynamite cartridges. The officers,
however, are satisfied that Meyers is inno
cent. The Quarrel Over the Property.
The Tabor residence is t hree'miles north
west of this place. There had for some
time been trouble over the property, and
the suspicions of a younger brother being
aroused he instituted the search which re
sulted in the sensational discovery. The
family now consists of the three children
Jessie, who is Mrs. K. KImore, of this
city; Jennie and Harry. Jennie was her
father's favorite, and it was generally un
derstood that she would fare the best in
the division of his estate. Her mother was
opposed to this, believing that all the chil
dren shouln be treated alike.
Three Deaths Which Were Strange.
Mr. Tabor died about a year ago of no
particular ailment, and a few months ago
Mr. Tabor was found dead in his bed.
Then Kdgar Champlain, Jennie's sweet
heart, while visiting her one day was taken
violently ill. Jennie nursed him devoted
ly, but he died in a few days. On her
father's death and that of her lover, Jen
nie grieved so that it was feared 'she would
go mad. She recovered her spirits, how
ever, and Arthur Meyers, of Killsdale,
took Champlain'n place.
The Ciirl Cioes a llnrgllng.
Of late the people with whom Jennie
visited missed sums of nione.-, valuable
articles of silver, etc., from their homes.
A detective was put on the case and found
the print of a dainty boot on the ground,
also a piece of line lace on a fence near by,
still 110 one suspected J -nnie. Then she
began buying dynandte and Mrs. KImore
and Harry li.nl an Ili-r search the house.
The explosive was f. iinc! as stated and
Jennie admitted ll:a: she was going to
blow up the house, :::id lf.it die had com
mitted the thefts. S.ic is believed to be
RECEIVER FOR THE IRON HALL.
Th:it is W hat the litigation Will l'rob.i
Inpianapoms, Aug 1(. The officers of
the Iron Hall are said to be trying to
manufacture sentiment in favor of the
order, circulating petitions among the
members of the local branches protesting
against the proceedings and asking that
the protest, be presented to the judge hear
ing the case. The petition approves all
the acts of Somerby and the supreme
sittings and req.ests the officers and attor
neys "10 make a vigorous defense of said
action to the end that the order in its
social, fraternal and benevolent relations
may be preserve.!." Somerby's secretary,
Mr. Ewans, was circulating the petition
in Hawville Monday, where so many mem
bers have refused to stand any further as
sessments and are leaving the order.
Makes Some Strange Admissions.
The plaintiffs have discovered another
circular which is being sent out and which
makes some strange admissions. Certain
officers of the local branches are, under the
law, compelled to give bond. The circular
states that t he supreme sitt ing has made
an examination of the bonds required and
that a great many of them are not suffi
cient. The sitting has also made an in
vestigation of the i'hilanelphia bank, and
according to that circular it is in good
condition to furnish security for the local
officers, and the supreme sitting will ac
cept its guarantee. The belief is general
among lawyers who have watched the
case that a receiver will be appointed and
it now only remains to secure the $720,000
in Somerby's bank at i'hiladeiph-a before
it is done.
