TO GET ALL, DEAD OR ALIVE
Court Reopened at Hlllsvlllo and In
dlctmehta Returned Against
Judge Masalo's Slayers.
HltxavtlXK, Va March it. The Allen
gang and their followers ore In hiding
near Devil's Deri, hoar Fancy dap,, on
the crest of the Blue Itldge range.
Five hundred detectives and deputy
sheriffs, alt trained mountain fighters,
armed with repeating rifles and auto
mata pistols, have moved out into the
mountains back of Hlllsvllle, .determined
to takoevery member of the gang, dead
It goes without saying that these moun
tain dcteotlves and deputy sheriff are
going to have their hands very full. The
Aliens are on a mountain thlok with
laurel, rugged and abrupt. It would be
easy for them from their high vantage
point to pick oft one by one any band
that Might attempt to scale fho natural
There may bo a hand to hand fight
between the outlaws and tho pursuers,
but It look to-night a If tho posse would
move with great caution and attempt
to get the Aliens by a carefully planned
campaign. The Government authorities
have stationed guards In the mountain
gap to head off any attempt on Ihe part
of Ihe outlaw to movo Inlo North Caro
lina or Tennessee.
Another name was to-day added to the
' list of tho dead In the Carroll Court House
tragedy. Press Fowler, one of tho Jur
ors who were wounded by the hall of
bullet In the little court room, died this
afternoon. The funerals of three other
Victims Judge Thornton t. Massle, Com
1 monwealth Counsel William Foster and
Sheriff h. S. Webb-were held to-day.
Die body of the other victim, nineteen-year-old
Nanoy Ayres, who was hit by
a stray bullet, will lie burled to-morrow.
In the meantlne this little community
'and the law abiding element in Carroll
J county, while still stunned by Thursday's
' tragody, havo set about reestablishing
law and order. The mills of Justice have
begun to grind and this afternoon a Grand
Jury, risking the fate of tho men who
served on the Floyd AlWn jury, brought
In alx !ndictmnu. On I against Rid
na Allen, the present leader of the gang,
nnd ariolneraguln'sl Floyd Allen, who U
now in the jail here. The other indict
ment are supposed to lie against Claude
Allen, a son of Mldnu; Sidney Edward ,
a nephew of Floyd and Fred Allen; a
son of Jack, and another of Floyd's
Judge Waller It Staples, wild was
assigned to the Carroll County Oo'lrt by
Clov. Mann, occupied thi seit In whlcj
Judge Massio met death.
Hie Devil's Den country, where the
Aliens have taken refuge, is about fif
teen miles south from Hlllsvllle. It is
very ''lose to the North Carolina Hun,
and the outlaws and their followers will
probably tin able to escape from Virginia
if the)' wish to take flight.
There are about twenty-four men In
the gang now. They are led by Sidney
All")), Floyd's brother. Claude and Fred
Allen, Sidney Kdwards and other mem
bers of the family are supposed to be In
the band that ha taken refuge on the
crest of the Illue Itldge mountains.
The men ore ready to fight to the death.
They have plenty of arms and ammuni
tion. They swooped down upon a hard
ware store In Mount Airy, n small North
Carolina mountain town, Just before
daylight yesterday morning, broke open
the door like common burglars, and
rode back Into the mountain cover with
pntctlcally the entire stock of firearms
and ammunition. ,
To embarrass the officers of the law
they cut the telephone wire into Mount
Airy- The only person in th little town
who saw the outlaw was a telephono
opcrntor and she was too frightened to
give the alarm,
While it is estimated that not more
than twenty-five men are in the gang
of outlaws now hiding in the mountains
this by no mean represent the entire
strength of the Aliens. For years this
family has ruled with a strong hand in
the Fancy Gap district of Virginia, which
has come to be known as ona of the most
notorious sections of the country for
moonshinlug and other lawlessness.
All of the lawbreakers, the men who
have been earning a living through moon
shine whlskoy, sympathize with the
Aliens, Other living back in the mnun-
j tnlns support the outlaws through fear,
and it Is estimated that In the event of a
showdown the Allen could muster mors
t han loo men in their dafenoe. It 1 known
that their spins and scout are now at work
and that an effort is being made by them
to draw In recruits.
Tho men who have started out to capture
the Allans alive or bring them in dead are
undsr tho direction of Thomas I,. Felts of
tho ilntectlvo bureau of Baldwin it Felt.
This bureau i to the mountain districts
of Pennsylvania and the Southern State
what tho Plnkertona or W, J. Burns Is
In other fields. The deteotlves are ex
perienced mountaineers and they have
been roonforoed by deputy sheriffs
familiar with every inch of thin region.
Tho detective have already indicated
that they Intend to go about the rounding
up of the Aliens with deliberation. They
havo begun by arresting all men whom
they susiioct of lieing spies. They Jailed
one man on this scorn to-day and three
others had been arrested before. The
leaders of tho man hunt planned to-night
to cut off all sources of information that
the gang might have and then to advanos
cautiously into the mountain with the in
tention of picking off singly aa many aa
Tho Allen could not have neleoted a
more favorable place of refuge. From
Devil's Den they can range through an
.Continued on Second rage.

Mrs. Kathleen Lesllo Lortllard, wife of
Beeckman Iiorlllard, Who Is a son of the
late Louis I.. Iorll!ard and grandson of
Peter IOrlllard, committed suloide yester
day afternoon in the bathroom of her
apartments at the Holland Houso by
hanging herself with a trunk strap. The
only explanation Mr. !orlllard could glvo
was Hint her mind had glvon way In an
attack of neurasthenia, n malady from

Mr. and Mrs. Ijorlllard had luncheon
together nt tho hotel rather latn and
went upstairs to their apartments on the
eighth floor. A little before 3:30 o'clock
Mr. Iiorlllard suggested that they take
an automobile ride. Mm. Ixirlllard, who
appeared to be hi good spirits at the time,
assented and Mr. Iorlllard went down
stair to order the machine at the hotel
stand. Ho was not gone from the apart
incut more than fifteen minute, and
perhaps a little less.
When lie returned to his npartment his
wife did not meet hlra as he had expected
she would and he walked through the
apartment calling her. Ho found hor In
the hathroorm She was hanging by the
neck by a canvas trunk strap, one end Of
which had been fastened to a bracket
near thu celling. It was evident that
she had stood on n chair, tied the light
canvas strap to tne fixture nnd In the
other end of the strap liad made a nooee
and put It about her neck.
Mr. Iiorlllard put hi weight on the light
strap and tore it down. Then he carried
his wlfu into tiie bedroom and telephoned
to tho hotel office. Manager Sommerj
of the hotel called In Dr. A. A. Moore of
43 Rust Thirty-third street. Dr. H. I..
Hooker, who i associated with Dr. Moore,
accompanied him to the hotel. The two
physicians worked over the woman for
something over an hour, ualng artificial
respiration and what other restorative
methods seemed applicable. Dr. Moore
said afterward that the effort was really

There was no note to explain Mr.
Lorillard dsslre to dir. Hha wau dressed
at aha, had bean, dressed at luriolioon.
A Wavy wrap was thrown carelessly
on tfiebed and her hat Uy near .t. It
seemed plausible to suppose that she
had put on cloak and list ready for
the automobile ride and, suddenly de
ciding upon aulotd-, had thrown off
cloak and hat and gone into'the bathroom.
The strap with which sho hung herself
wa a light canvas strap Used to strap
together gowns on the Inside of a trunk.
