SULLIVAN’S FATE.
The Evidence Before the Coroner's
Jury Proves Conflictin';.
BUT IT ESTABLISHES HIS COMPLICITY IN
THE STAGE ROBBERY.
AND SHOWS THAT MARTIN OBETED
ORDERS.
Comment*, speculations, Etc.
“JC vents crowd thick and fast,” is an old
quotation that might aptly be applied to
F.ureka just now. The fire furnished food
for a nine duy*’ gossip, and hud not ceased
to be a matter of interest ere the daring
feat of Sullivan and Ennis, and its tragical
finale, startled even those accustomed,
through long year* of residence on the
coast, to such scenes. On the street cor
ners, hotels, saloons and homes it has
formed the all-absorbing theme, and ths
general verdict is that while both possessed
the dare-devil spirit of a Dick Turpin or a
Claude Duval, neither possessed an iota of
their judgment or discretion. It has been
claimed that had they quietly returned to
town after the
fciniye Robbery,
(It is now indisputably proven that Bulli
van At least participated in that), and re
mained in their old haunts, no suspicion
would have been aroused, aud they would
have escaped detection, and it lias been a
matter of Bin prise and speculation as to
what induced them to pursue the fool
hardy and dangerous course they did.
Their action was doubtless induced by an
iucidcut which goes to show how a guilty
conscience, combined with a trilling atlair,
may turn the current of events and lead to
such tragical results as that of Wednesday
morning.
After the stage robbery Sullivan and bis
companion evidently skirted the hills and
entered tlie town in the neighborhood of
the Richmond furnaces, and sought Dor
land4* saloon. Th y naturally concluded
that intelligence of the robbery had reached
Eureka shortly after it* occurrence, and of
course were not aware that tlie stage had
continued on its way to Ruby Hill, and
that the news wus afterward brought from
the Hill. Upon entering the saloon the
first man encountered was Fr»d. Gorman,
ar.d his presence at such an hour and under
such circumstances w as sufficient to arouse
their suspicions, and they left hastily. It
is evident that they proceeded immediate lv
to the stable, and their actions there and
subsequently show th* t they regarded their
case as a desperate one, and on the im
pulse of the moment took a desperate
man’s chances. Gorman’s presence un
doubtedly led thiM’i to suppose that they
were under surveillance, and liable at any
moment to b<* arrested with the stolen
property in their possession. On no othe r
hypothesis can their desperate action be
accounted for.
Til® Inquest.
Messrs. W. ]I. Remington, Frank Dor
kee, P. N. Ilans^n, M. 13. Bartlett. J. G
Ford and Charles Moore were selected as a
jury, anJ at 11 o’clock, in company with
Coroner Smith, proceeded to Schwa mb's
dead hon e, and examined Sullivan's re
mains. The ball had entered the back
just below tho right shoulder blade, and
passed out near the right nipple, and
shows that Martin must have be« n in a
direct line with him when the shot wax
fhed.
After viewing the remains the Coroner
ami jury adjourned to the Grand Jury
room to hear tho evidence. Mr. Bartlett
\»aa chosen Foreman and tho Sentinel's
local Seen tary.
I’oiutM t:*(a3>H*he h
The testimony of Deputy Sheriff Simp
son and Messrs. McKee and Martin, who
aided ns hi* posse, simply corroborated
each other, tud tho main points were all
published in yesterday’s Sentinel. Simp
son stated that finding that Ennis would
escape if the pursuit of Sullivan was kept
up, called out to Martin, who was in a'.
vauce, to ‘ drop him.” Martin, acting un
der authority of a recognized r of the
law, obeyed the order, and sh >t him down.
All three of his pursuers had called upon
Sullivan to half, and his death was the
result of his refusal.
The evidence of other parties was not so
clear, and shows that fcometh’ng ix held
hack that may he developed in Ennis’
trial. James Cassidy testified that he
knew both men in Bodie. and while he re
garded Sullivan as a ijnit r. peaceable man.
against whom nothing had ever been said,
ho had an entirely ditfereut opinion of
Ennis. Since tin it arrival in town he had
no connection with either, save to a-ssist
Sullivan occasionally, financially, and in
Ins capacity as proprietor of a saloon. He
also testified that early in the evening of
the robbery, Sullivan asked him the loca
tion of the cabin of James Campbell, stat
ing at the same time that Le desired to
get something to eat.
A 4f*itk»liou of Veracity.
Campbell was hunted up, and upon tak
ing the stand, disclaimed any personal
acquaintance with Sullivan, further than
that he had n et h in in a saloon once or
twice,but had never furnished him any tiling
to cat, nor had he ever been in his cabin.
Cassidy was then r« called, atnl sai l that
Campbell had admitted to him that Sulli
van had cooked hia supper in his cabin
upon the evening of the robbery, but that
he was asleep and knew nothing of it.
That a man should go to tho cabin of a
stranger to cook a meal is incomprehensi
ble, and that the proprietor of the cabin
should allow such a proceeding, or that h
should continue to sleep for such a length
of time, and then admit to Ca»sidv that he
I knew of it. and afterwards deny it on the
stand, is equally strange,* and will open a
trail that may lead to important develop
ments in the future.
Hansen, the driver of tho stage, gave
evidence that would scarcely stand the tist
of a cross-examination at the hands of any
lawyer. He was o’early honest in his
conviction that Sullivan was one of the
parties who robbed the stage, but could
give no satisfactory reason for bis belitf.
Tho moon was olwcured at the time, and
all the men were masked.
NiiIIIyhii'm Complicity
In the robbery, however, is indisputably
proven, as the watch taken from Barney
Kane, who was a passenger on the stage,
was found upon his body.
After hearing the evidence, the jury re
turned a verdict that Sullivan’s dentil was
caused by a pistol shot at the hand of Wm.
Martin, and that the latter acted under
the«instructions of a law officer, and there
fore no blame could attach to his actiou.
The Victim <*n:l Trimmer.
John Sullivan was f'om Lowell, Mass.,
where his wife and two children still re
side ; Ennis, who claims to have known
l.irn a long time, says lie was about 33
years old, and his appearance would not
indicate that he was older. He was about
five feet eight Inches iu height, with a
physiognomy that phrenologists would
term a good one, and hair that grow in
wild profusion, and presented the appear
ance of a wig. All the testimony adduced
before the Coroner's jury, ami informa
tion gleaned from friends, whs to the effect
that he was never considered a bad man,
was not addicted to intemperate habits,
and never quarrelsome. Hit* family is said
to lie a respectable one, and his venture
to have been the result of desperation,
growing out of bis inability to obtain em
ployment. This argument will scarcely
hold good at a time when workmen are iu
demand be-e. He wu buried by Schwarob
lust evening.
Charles Ennis, bis companion, chums to
bo a native of New Hampshire, is twenty
seven yean olu. about five feet six inches
in height, and has a countenance that
would send the hand of any honest man
to his pocket-book. He has been on the
coast about nine years, and came to Eu
reka, in company with Hullivau, from
Winnemucca, about three weeks ago. He
was a brake man on the Virginia and
Truckce railroad for about two years, and
afterward worked in one of the Bodia
mints.
Wllllntn ffartlu,
Who shot Sullivan, is one of the best
known men in our community. He is
careless and rough in appearance, is noted
as a quiet, inoffensive but courageous
man, who never sought a quarrel .uni who
nev« r avoided an enemy, and is one of the
best shots on the coast. He has always
| been a favorite among those who knew
him b^-st. and the verdict of the jury ac
quitting him of all blame wag hailed with
general satisfaction.
An Interview With
The Sentinel’s representative had an
interview with Ennis last evening, and
questioned him in regard to his connec
tion with the affair. Ho frankly admitted
that the stealing of the horses was pre
meditated, but denied all knowledge
of the stage robbery. It bad been agreed
upon by Hullivan and himself, he said,
that they would relieve Htc wart of a couple
of his best horses, with which they would
get out of town, and they called at his
stable on several occasions to examine his
stock. This latter assertion was corrobor
ated before the jury by the stable boy.
i On the night of the robbery he was in
| Buland’s saloon, when Sullivan came In and
hastily said that they must leave Immedi
ately. This surprised him, as it had not
been tluir infc. ntion to leave for a day or
two. Hullivan, however, insisted, and
stated they would have to leave that night
or not at all, and finally raid he was as
well satisfied to leave theu as at any other
time, and they started for the stable.
They bad expected to encounter but one
man, but met five, and this disconcerted
their plans. After leaving town he had
advised Hullivan to take to the bills, but
the latier, who was acquainted with the
country, objected, stating that they
would leave the main road when reaching
Railroad Canyon. Not knowing the ro*d, j
he says he followed Sullivan’s guidance
with' lit question. He told his story in an |
unembarrassed, plausible manner, and is
evidently shrewd enough to have decided
upon his best line of defe nse, and having
mapped it out has determined to stick to
it. The charges upon which he will be
tried will be robbery and grand larceny,
the penalty for which is not less than five
year*’ imprisonment, and maybe extended
for life. At best, he has not au iuviting
future before him.

architecture. A* the district has now
proven a permanent one. our citizens are

RELIEF,
A Wise Movement on the Port of
the Committee.
A meeting of the Committee of Fifteen
was held at the Court-house last evening,
and the work of the Executive Committee
was reviewed and favorably commented
upon by several of its members.
Judge Dave E. Baily moved that the
thanks of the Committee be extended to the
Executive Committee, composed of Messrs.
Probert, Foley, Chamblin, Sadler and
Baker, for the effective, efficient and noble
manner in which they had discharged the
duties intrusted to them, and, after some
highly complimentary remarks, it was
agreed to.
A running discussion was kept up for
some time, as to what disposition should be
made of the goods yet on hand. Mr.
Foley stated that what remained was not
of a varied character, and that the Com
mittee was put to heavy expeuse in assort
ing them, in keeping a watchman, paying
for drayage, etc., and stated that some
thing would have to be done with them, as
the Court-house would soon be needed for
the District Court. It was finally agreed
that the matter should be left with the
Executive Committee, and they were au
thorized to take such steps and dispose of
the goods in such manner as they might
deem best.
What has troubled the Committee for
some days, has been the large amount of
beans and corn meal on hand, and a
scarcity of other articles. This they will
probably remedy, as several of our mer
chants have offered to take the surplus of
these articles off their hands, and allow
the full amount that it would cost to bring
them from the nearest point where they can
be purchased. The Committee will then
give orders on such merchants for certain
amounts, and the merchants will furnish
the holders with such goods as they may
dehire at cost price. This is the best of the
many excellent ideas advanced, as it will
enable those in needy circumstances to buy
a variety of necessary articles instead of
taking a sack of meal or a hag of beans,
and dieting on those two articles for a
month or more.
The Committee then adjourned, with tho
understanding that they would again meet
when anything should occur that might
demand their attention.

C. M. Beiiuett, the architect, is engaged on
the plans. The new International is to be
one of the finest buildings iu town. Uncle I
Dave is a pioneer and proposes to stay by i

rank as one of the leading resorts in the \
town. They deserve all the success with
which they may meet, end none wish it
more heartily than the Sentinel.
