The Evidence of Jmmerons Witnesses Who Were Heard lestcrday FASTENS SUSPICION MOKE FIRMLY rrROtt A STAFF COr.RESrOSDET.'" MoxosfGAHELA ClTV, May 19. Will iam West, the colored man 25 years old, was this evening held for court by Justice Jotm Holland on the charge of murdering John and Umily Crouch and their son Andrew on May 13. Little that has not already been published in The Dispatch tras developed, but it was considered ample for the holding of the prisoner. District Attorney Parker conducted the hearing. The city was filled with country people all day. and there was much excitement. The hearing was not held until this nfternoon, owintr to a question as to jurisdiction. Before that time some new and nearly conclusive proof of the 4 guilt of William Wett was developed by 'Squire McCormick and Burgess French, of Beutleysville. It was the story of Thomas Coyle, a farm hand for Mills, living north " of the Crouch place. McCormick, French and Dr. A. X. Booth, under orders from District Attorney Parker, went to Bealls ville yesterday to disinter the Crouches and examine their stomachs. The Burgess of Beallsvillc and the cemetery directors re fused to allow the disinterment. The object was to ascertain whether the murder oc curred before or after supper McCormick aud French came here this morning to con fer with the District Attorney. It being rumored that Attorney Mcll raine, for the prosecution, would contest Mayor Houston's jurisdiction, it was deci ded to avoid that possibility. After the ar rival of the District Attorney and Detec tives Glenn and Kornman it was decided to bring a new suit. Mayor Houston, at 10 o'clock, dismissed the case before him and a new iuformation was made before Justice John Holland, the charge being the same as in the other case, murder. There could be no doubt of the territorial jurisdiction of the justice. wouldn't give ur the boy. Homer Harvey, of Brownsville, with whom Annie Brundage lived from 1881 un til February 20, lb90, came here this morn ing and tried to get the woman to give up the boy, Lindley, who is 7 years old. The woman refused to do so. The inquest was begun at 1:30 p. M. in the City Hall. A great crowd collected out side, and there was a severe crush at the door. It was out of the question to admit all or even half of those who pushed and shouted to get in. Justice Holland con ducted the hearing. West was brought up from his cell wearing a cutaway coat taken from his trunk. He was very nervous, rubbed his hands together and cracked his knuckles frequently. Mayor Houston announced the change of jurisdiction, and Justice Holland read the complaint. During its reading West looked steadily at the Justice, and when the words regarding murder were read his lips and eyelids quivered. He breathed heavily. , Ann Brundage watched her lover almost breathlessly. The examinations were con ducted by District Attorney William S. Parker. The main points in the testimony were as follows: Dr. K. E. French testified that the necks of all three of the murdered people Mere broken. 'Squire David Mitchell told ot the alarm given last Wednesday morning by joung Craw lord, and described his visit and entrj Into the house. As he spoke of the murdered people, their positions aud the bloody club. West bit his lips, aud frequently opened aud closed them. His lips and throat seemed to be dry and parched, and he swallowed frequently. When 'Squire Mitchell entered the house, at 9 A. M. Wednesday, the bodies ere stiff. The bureau drawers in the bedroom downstairs .were all drawn out some distance and their contents mussed. HOW THE BODIES WEEE FOUND. Alpheus Crawford told about the same story. He and -Mitchell searched for tracks in the yard and the road, but found none. Crawford tola of one harvesting time, when West and Andrew Crouch went to the house together and got money with which West paid the har vesters. On Wednesday morning the front door was locked and the kitchen door un locked, dn Tuesday, ('ran fid said, ram fell from 2 to 3 and from 4 to 4 15 o'clock. Harry Crawford, 12 5 ears old. repeated his story of rlndm? Crouch's dead bod on the morning of Wav 14, about i.15 or 9 o'cl. ck. When he went to the home the dog was in the jard, but did cot bark. MrE. Jemima Tinlcy. living three-quarters of a mile from the Crouch house and nearly due north, tuld of sceinc a tall man hurrying across the fields at about 4:15 o'clock Wednesday aft ernoon. She said a hard rain was falling, and the man was at least 200 yards distant, lie wore a dark hat and a long black coat, and ho had a cane in his right hand. He was a "dark complected" man. but she could not say if he were a negro. The hat, coat and cordurov pants found in Beaver Falls were produced. District Attorney Parker asked that We-t put op the hat and coat. Attorney Mcllvaine refused to agree to that 1'etective Kornman. who is six feet rail, put on the hat and coat. Jlrs Twle said: "That don't look like the coat the man had on that I saw. I think it was longer." West stood up. Mrs. Tinley said: "He looked to be about as tall as that man." Jilts Jane Jones said that when she was at an upstairs window Tuesday afternoon, she saw the sheep running in the field. Looking out to see why thev were running, she saw a tall man. with dark clothing, hurrying across the flcld in a northeastern direction, fcuo watched him out of ight. a distance of about a quarter of a mile. She onlj saw West once, and said that Bhc did not know him when she saw him. He n ent toward feaulters' woods, in thp direction of the Creek road rather toward Hctherinc tonV As the day was cloudy and the ram heaiy. he could not tell the man's color. It was about 4 o'clock. FUTING TnE SHOES I!T THE TRACKS. William Greenlee, a young roan living two miles ucrth or Bentleysville, told of the fitting of West's old shoes into tracks across his fath er's oat field, by Officers McCleary and Korn man. Tne tracks were large; some rain had made them faint, but the shoes fit as closelv as possible. He felt certain that shoes of "the came size as thoe tried made the tracks exam ined. The big. long, flat, mud-covered shoes were produced and identified. The tracks were first noticed by witness' brother Joe, a few minutes after 5 o'clock on the evening of Way 14. The field was soft and the tracks were deep, so that their outlines were plainly to be Been. Captain Martin Coulson, the proprietor of the Keystone Stock farm, described West's passing his place at 6.30 or 7 o'clock on the toning of Slay It He positively identified en as the man. His story was given in The Dispatch of to-day. West did not seem much fatigued and was walking fast. He carried a bundle. Captain Coulson was shown the coat found at beaver Falls. He said he thought the coat West had on was longer. James Kearnev, llnng between Coulson's and this city, saw a colored man pass nis house a short time before 7 o'clock. He could not recognize the man, but he was walking l cry rapidly. Mrs. Harriet Gamble, keeping a boarding linuse on Hail road street, told of West and the woman remaining over night at her bouse, from May 14 to IS. When West came, about 9 P. SL, he wore a Derby bat, a long black coat and brown corduroy breeches. Next morning he changed clothing, after a trunk was brought to the house. West wanted to go north on the 7 o'clock train in the morning, and Mrs. Gam ble got an early breakfast. Then West said he would go after his trunk because his wife wanted to change her clothing. West said he lived at the far side of Washington county close to Greene county. Thev left her houo about 11 A. M., Ma 13. The "witness said that West had a satchel with a paper parcel t-iraiJiieu 10 us sine. During the night she heard West and his woman TALKING 2TEAKLY ALI, NIGHT. The woman said: "We have been visiting five weeks and spent S150. Will drew some more out of the bank yesterday, and he has f 1, 400 w orth of property." Attorney Mcllvaine spent a long time cross-examining Mrs. Gamble as to the satchel. She maintained positively that there was a satchel, and that West carried It sway with him, but she could not tell its color. When West came to the house his coat was torn under the arm. Next day, a lew minutes after West and the woman and boy started np the railroad track toward the depot, she saw West pass the house alone, walking down the tracks carrying the satchel. Finley Bedsworth, of Bentloysville, said that he last saw John Crouch alive at about 1 o'clock on May 13. He was helping Andrew and his father to put a harrow together and afterward was harmwing. It was about 2 o'clock that ho last saw Andrew alive. George Wilson, baggage agent at the Monon gabela Citv depot, said that West came to the UCJIUb ID gd U15 UUUH . ttwwu , -"."J - The trunk arrived from Pittsburg on the 6:09 train, on May 12. West was at the depot that evening, pointed out the trunk and said he had lost the check. Wednesday morning Wilson did not oe West, but the woman checked the trunk away. Harry Mains said that when he putthe horses in the barn, about 2:15 r. 2i of May 13, and had unharnessed them, one of them ran out of the stable and when the other tried to follow it fell and got fast in a stalk After It was helped up, Andrew let both horses out into the pasture field. When Mains got home and asked his wito what time it was, she said it was about S o'clock. Charles Hoover, of Allegheny, said that on May 12, at 3 P. M., West came to him In the Allegheny market and handed him a note signed by the name of Ilasil Barker, who. West Baid, was his t ncle. The note was an order on Hoover for St 50, which Hoover paid to West. GOING AFTEE HIS TKUNK. The latter said that he wanted the money In order to go to Quaker Valley to got a trunk bo had there, and was then going to work for his uncle. Barker, at tuo bead of Butcher's Run. Next day Barker said the note was a forcery, and refused to pay the money back. Hon. George V. Lawrence, of Monongahela City, said that on Friday last West said in the jail that.be never saw the Barker order before, and that Hoover's story was a lie. Mr. Law rence repeated the 6tory which West told him of his wanderings in search of Espy's house on May 13. Ibe witness said he thought West ought to know that country well, aud he was ratner surprised to bear him talk a Bout gettiuc lost. West could not give any definite infor mation about his trip, not seeming to know the country. About a month ago West asked Mr. Lawrence to help him get a note of his cashed. It was for $05, indorsed by John West and an other man. Mr. Lawrence thoucht the In dorsers were good, and he helped West get the money. Since then he had learned that both the indorsers declared their signatures to be jorgeries. Hugh Kav testified that fie met West on the street here May 13. between 8 and 8 o'clock, and that he had a black satchel. Thomas Coyle, a farm band on the Mills' plaee, north of Crouch's, was called. It was difficult to secure his testi mony, as he is very deaf and has an impedi ment in his speech. He is a short man with a long brown ueara. .tie saiu ne was oui in the field between 4 and 5 o'clock of Tuesday last, when he saw a long-lecged, dark man carrying a satchel in his left hand and cane in right, walking with all his might across one of Jones' fields, northward. Officer William McCleary described tne ar rest of the prisoner at Beaver Falls on May 15, his return here and bis statements concerning his indefinite wanderings on the day of the murder. Officer John Glenn, of Allegheny, de scribed finding the long coat and hat in tho attic of the Nickel Plate restaurant at Beaver Falls. The articles had been identified by Annie Brundage as being those formerly worn by West. HELD WITHOUT BAIL. This was considered sufficient evidence and Mr. Parker asked to have the prisoner held. Attorney Mcllvaine said he thought the testimony wholly insufficient, but he was willing ior the case to go to court Justice Holland then held the prisoner to court without bail. He was returned to his cell and will be taken to Washington to morrow morning. Annie Brundage will beheld as an accomplice and will also go to the county jail. After the hearing was concluded the boy was taken from the woman and given to Homer Harvey, the father. Harvey took the child this evening to Brownsville. Coroner James F. Kennedy has decided to disinter the Crouch bodies to-morrow and make an examination of'them. A FEW COMPLAINTS. District AttorneiJParker expresses him self as satisfied with the case, but further investigations will be made. He says he is hampered because he has not a county de tective, such as Allegheny county employs. Officers and citizens declare their, intention to make searches for the missing satchel and treasure. There is much complaint among the farmers and even city taxpavers in this region because the County Commissioners have not offered a reward for the Crouch murderer's conviction. Some who think West guilty hold that there should be in ducements to search for every clue. Others who believe him innocent, are still more clamorous for a reward. Even the officers admit that the evidence so lar secured is not enough to convict. HASSLEB. GREAT BARGAINS IN ORGANS TIANOS AND At Henrlckk' Temple of Mmlc.

A Story Full of 'Dramatic Features Being Rehearsed at Findlay. CHARGES OF POfcOSIHG MADE. Master 'Workman Powderly Acquitted of the Charge of Conspiracy. ALL THE NEWS FROM SEAEBI T0WKS IS FECIAL TELEGRAM TO TUB DISPATCH. I Findlay, May 19. The trial of Henry Kibler, Jerome Kibler, Charles Morgan, Levi Fox, Albert Decker, John Long, Tuck Hughes and Charles Bates, well-known resi dents of the county and city, under indict ment for being the principals in the now famous Oman robbery, began in the Court of Common Pleas here this morning. This is the most sensational case in the criminal an nals of Northwestern Ohio, and has attracted attention all over the country on account of the dramatic features it has furnished from time to time. On the night of February 2.18SS, while Wesley Oman and his family were sitting around the flro in their frame house, six miles south of this city, the door of the room was suddenly broken in and eight masked men rushed upon the iamily and bound and gagged them. Thoy then demanded 2,000. which Oman had re ceived a few days before from the sale of land, but which ha had deposited in a Findlay bank. DID NOT BELIEVE HIM. This he told the leader of the gang, but it was not believed, and a 4-year-old son was taken and held over the fire until his feet were blis tered, the object being to induce the father to disclose tho hiding plaee of the money and sava his child from further sufferinc. This fail ing, they took S1S0 belonging to Oman's father, and rode away, leaving the family hound and gagged until morning. Oman sus pected some of his neighbor of the crime, and employed Detective Lowe, of Toledo, to work up the evidence. The detective had collected testimony suffi cient to secure an indictment when ho was suddenlv taken ill and died shortly afterward in great agony at tho Humphrey House in this city. A local detective, Henry Strickler, was then employed, who procured the indictment of the men whose trial began to-day, but two weeks ago he became suddenly ill with symp toms similar to those which carried Lowe to his death and In a short time. he. too, followed his predecessor to tho grave, thus putting out of tne way two pi tne mate's most important wit nesses. SUPPOSED TO HAVE BEEN TOISONED. It is charged that Lowe and Strickler were both poisoned, but as no anal sis of their re mains was made this will probably never be proven, although it will be charged by the prosecution. When the trial began this morning tho de fense were represented by 16 of tho best attor neys at this bar. and the selection of a jury had not been finished when court adjourned this evening. The defense will attempt to prove an alibi, but it is hinted that one of the accused wdl turn State's evidence and disclose the whole conspiracy to rob Oman, and the details of the snhsequent efforts to get rid of the two detectives, bhould these expectations be real ized tho case will sustain Its sensational feat ures to the close. The jury will he sworn to-morrow morning, and tho taking of testimony will begin at once. Over 150 witnesses are to be examined and tho courtroom will be crowded. THEY ABE ACQUITTED. Tbo Powderlr nnd Brrno'a Conspiracy Trial Comes to nn End. J rjtCIAL TELEOBAM TO TDK DISPATCH-. 1 GREEKSBuno, May 19. T. V. Powderly, J. R. Byrne and Peter Wise were this evening ac quitted of the charge of conspiracy preferred by tbo Hon. Edward Callaghan, of Scottdale. The case was taken up at 1 o'clock this after noon, and it was given to the jury at 5, and a verdict was returned at 0. The costs were placed on the county. The main portion of tho testimony of the Commonwealth was given by Callaghan himself, andwas a-reiteration of the story as given the public from timo to tlmo since the beginning of the tronble. Letters that had passed between Powderly and himself, and columns rrotn labor journals, were read, charging each other with unfaithfulness to the intere.-ti of the K. ot L., and it seemed that the charge of conspiracy was lost sight of. Mr. Powderly testified that he knew nothing of the prosecutor, and that he never conspired againsc him; and that be had never been in tho county before. He stated to-night just before board ing an east-bound train that he would not enter suit against Callaghan on any charge, but in turn would lend that man his sympathies. The case created a great deal of interest, the courtroom being crowded during the trial. Mr. Powderly was defended by Senator Bobbins and James Bcacom. SUSPECTED OF BUEOLAET.

A so-called "Webster's Unabridged Dic tionary" is being offered to the public at a very low price. The body of the book, from A to Z. is a cheap reprint, page for page, of the. edition of 1847, which was ia its day a valuable book, but, in the progress of lan guage for over forty TEARS, has been completely superceded. It is now repro duced, broken type, errors and all, by a photographic process, is printed on cheap paper and nimsily bound. It is advertised to be the substantial equivalent of "an 3 to 12 book," while in fact it Is a literal copy' of a book which in iU day was retailed for about $5, and that book was much superior in paper, print and binding to this imita tion, and was then the best Dictionary of the time instead of an antiquated one. A brief comparison, page by page, between ths " reprint and the latest and enlarged edition will show the great superiority of the latter. So honorable dealer will allow the buyer of such to suppose that he is getting ths "Webster which to-day is accepted as tha Standard and THE best. There are several of these reprints, differ ing in minor particulars, but dos'x be duped, the body of each is a literal copy of the 1847 edition. WHAT THE PAPERS SAY. Tne New York Times says: "Only those who are ignorant of the great advances tbat have been mads in dic tionaries are likely to bay thi3 reprint at any price." The Americas Bookseller of New York says: "The etymologies are utterly misleading, and naturally so; for when the Webster of 1847 was issued Comparative Philology was is in its cradle. The definitions are im perlect, requiring condensation, re-arrangement and additions. The vocabulary is delective, same of the commonest words of to-day, especially scientific terms, for which a dictionary is most often consulted, being entirely absent. In not one of these three prime requisites of a dictionary 13 the "Webster reprint a trust worthy guide, or, rather, it is a misleading one. This 'reprint' is not in tended for intelligent men. It is made ex pressly to be foisted by all the arts of the book canvasser on those who have been pre cluded from a knowledge of what develop ments lexicography has undergone during the last forty-two years. This is the crnelest feature of this money-making enterprise." The Buffalo Ciiistiax Advocate says: "Don't be Duped. Thousands are, or are likely to be, by the flashy, fraudulent advertisements of 'The Original "Webster's Unabridged Dictionary, which is offered for three or four dollars. If any of our readers wish to invest in a pur chase which they will be likely afterward to regret, they will do so after being duly notified." The Journal of Education, Boston, says: "Teachers cannot be too careful not to ba imposed on, since tbe very things which make a dictionary valuable in school are wanting in this old-time reprint. Any high-school dictionary which can be pur chased for a dollar and filty cents is worth, more ior school use than this." Many other prominent journals speak in similar terms, and legitimate publishers write us in strong condemnation of this attempt to ioist an obsolete book on the public. The latest and the best, which bears our imprint on the title page, has OVEE 2,000 paces, with illustrations on almost every page. G. & C.
