also agent for the U. S. Express
Company, has absconded with scv-ir
-a! hundred dollars of the latter

It is almost Impossible of b*i>:
ntiK.ng his many friends that ne tS
guilty as accused as he has always
borne 'a good reputation, lie is well
known to the leading biisiaov* nu n
of this section of tl:*? state. For
yeajp he engaged in the r^rcautllo
bu">'nexs nt Bayard, Grant. i\y,
and iaser hG traveled out of Kca:"*y
f?r the Kenneweg Company, cove,
ing several nearby counties.
Several weeks ago, he gave out
that lie had been assaulted and >iob
bed by highwaymen of a consider
able sum of the company's money.
Following the regular custom of
such big corporations he was after
wards of course under strict survo.il
ance by their detectives, which may
have had to do with his leaving,

While Further Investigation is Being
Made?Some Clues Being Run
The two Shipper boys. John and
Charles, arrested Wednesday by Con*
stable Wild, on a warrant sworn out
before Squire Thompson, charging
'them with having stolen goods in
their possession^ have been released.
The authorities, however, are not sat
isfied of the innocence of the boys,
as their statements of how they came
into possession of the sack full of
brass bearings representing consider
able value, were not by any means
clear, hence 'tihe goods are being held
awaiting further development. They
claimed they bought the metal from
some one in Berkeley Springs.
In the absence of any directly in
criminating evidence Squire Thomp
son released the youths on their own
