I'roven Very Fatal.
LniA, Dec. 14. The dispatch yesterday
frying the account of the poisoning acci
dent in the Browu family was an error as
to the number of victims. No less than six
were ooisoned, and three have died. The
presence of poison was not detected tin! il
after the family was taken ill and it had
become thoroughly distributed in their sys
tems. The persons who died were a little
girl of 8, one of 5, and a son aged 18. They
uttered the greatest agony, and turned
black before they died. Of the others the
fatner, mother, and a girl aged 20 are in a
Tery precarious condition.

H.m.'P.wbcrq. Pa., Dec. 14. The action
of the governor in favorably considering
the application of Deputy Sheriff Farrell
for a requisition on the governor of Ken
tucky for the delivery of Robert Beatty
into the custody of the Alleghany county
authorities was largeJr based on several
affidavits. One was that of Pal rick Galla
gher, aged 36, a cook in the Carnegie em
ploy in what is known as restaurant No. 1,
from Aug. 25 for about tweuty days, and
from Oct. 1 for eighteen days in restau
rant No. 6.
A Knight of Labor Accused.
In this affidavit Gallagher states that on
some day between the 21st and SSth of Au
gust Robert Beatty Approached him in
Pittsburg on the subject of putting some
thing in the tea or coffee made by him for
the workmen which would have the effect
of making those drinking the tea or coffee
sick and wesk and unslile f.. work. He
then states that on the following day lieat
ty took him in company with J. M. David
son to see H. F. Dempsey. the master
workman of District assembly No. 3, K. of
L, at tit) Third avenue, and there informed
li i tn that Demnsey was the man who would
furnish him with the stuff to put in the
tea or coffee.
t.at a rSnttle of Yellow Powder.
Beatty suggested in the presence of
Dempsey that croton oil lie used, but M-.
Davidsou objected, saying that is was dan
gerous to use unless by a man experienced
in the use of it, whereupon Iwth Davidson
and Gallagher declined to have anything to
do with the project if it involved danger of
human life. Jallagher was then told to
visit Dempsey every day or two until he
could get the stuff to lie used. On Sept.
Tor 8, he received from Deiupsey person
ally a bottle containing a yellow powder,
which Dempsey informed him contained
three doses. one of which would le sufficient
for a pot of tea or coffee containing thiriv
Viwd the Drug in Their Tea,
He subsequently put the three powders
into the tea draDk by the Carnegie work
men in No. 1 restaurant with the result, as
he believed, of making such workmen as
drank it sick and disordered and unfit to
work. Affiant says he subsequently re
ceived other powders of apparent ly the
same character from Dempsey, und con
tinued to thus administer them with simi
lar effect, and likewise received others,
later, from Hcaity, who cautioned him not
to use more tliun one powder in thirty ga!
Ions of tea or coffee. Also that tile jiriw
ders should not lie used oftt ner than every
second or third day, und as tar us pos-ili!
be nit iiuo tlc tea and colTec drank by the
Tried the Stuffoii a foir.
On one occasion Dcalty informed the
affiant that he had trieil one of the -siwdt-s
ju a dog, which it had killed. Gallagher
Bays he believes these powders were injur
ious to the health of the men and th- l
William K. Griffit hs was made so sick and
disordored thereby that his life was de
spaired of. Gallagher also states that
lli-atty iaid him on one occasiou fl, at an
other time and promised that he should
be well recompensed for his services. He
also says that Dcuipey c-nis.sl to lie paid
to him the sum of fci" forhis services in the
matter and approved a hill for the addi
tional sum of ii-Si.
Mweara to the statement.
He bel ieves that D. M. Davidson is en
route to Cincinnati, intending to lie pres
ent at Louisville us a witness in any pro
ceedings that may be instituted on behalf
of Beatty to secure his release from cus
tody. The alxive is set forth at length,
and is sworn and subscrilied to by Patrirk
Gallagher liefore Alderman McMasters, at
Pittsburg, Dec. 10, 113.
The Sensation Vet to Come.
Gallagher is in Pittsburg, but is hiding,
through fear, it is said, that he will be
kiiie.i. The officials and inemliers of the
Homestead advisory Imard continue to de
nounce the poison plot as a scheme to fur
ther injure them, but that the company
has some revelations which are sensation d
there is little dniibt, and under mem Iters of
the ( 'arnegie tirm say that the deuotu-ment
is vet to route.
THE BOLD TRAIN ROBBER AGAIN.
A ISriUegroom Fatally Shot and Another
Huntington. W. Va., Dec. 14. Masked
men attempted to rob t he passengers on
the Chesapeake and Ohio midnight train
within the ci1y limits Monday night. The
train was just pulling out of Huntington
when two men entered the passenger
coach from the smoker. Both wore slouch
hats pulled down over their faces and they
stationed themselves at each door of the
sar. Immediately and without warning
they began firing with their revolvers right
and left to terrify the pnsseugera. A man
from Chicago named Tuck who, with his
bride, was on his way to Germany, grap
pled with the robber nearest him.
The Desperadoes (let Away.
The desperado knocked him down, and
his companiou, running np, shot Tuck
through the head, inflicting a fatal wound.
The train collector and several passengers
then attacked the two men and eucxwnded
in wresting their revolvers from them.
When they were deprived of their weapons
the fellows leaped from the train aud made
good their escape. Immediately upon their
arrival in Guyandotte the train officials
gave the alarm aud a posse was organised
to run the men down. In the scuffle a pas
seuger named Peter Drake was shot
through the foot and leg.
ttot Hold of a Saspeet.
Last evening the detectives arrested Bar
rel! Forgey b one of the robbers. He wa
wounded in the shoulder, and says it was
doue by one of the robbers, which the po
lice do not Itelieve, as he corresponds exact
ly with the description given of one of the
robbers, and the trainmen say one of them
was hit in the shoulder. Moreover the
wounden pas.wngc has identified Forgey.
