Weapons of u Dangerous Character and Keys raken from Kelt)' and Christie, None too .Soon ' L'O PREVENT AN ESCAPE. Another Mysterious Attempt at Robbery 1 At the Hoffman Residence, where j Glenn was Shot, Which at this Time is Certainly ] a Striking And Suggestive Coincidence. Oillcial Reticence. Yesterday a miscellaneous collection of knives, clubs, keys and other rude tools likely to he of service in an attempt to escape from prison were found in the cell at the county jail occupied by Thomas Kelly and Harry Christie, the two men recently convicted in the Circuit Court of the murder of Policeman Joe Glenn in January. The men were retained in the jail here pending a motion for a new trial. They were generally regarded as good men to watch, and how they accumulated their collection of tools and weapons, incomplete as this collection was, without arousing suspipicion, cannot be conjectured. If i^iot believed, however, that they were furnished with anything by outside friends, the character of the outfit causing the belief that they made all the tools themselves except one large jack knife. How the discovery was made is a matter of dispute. An Intelligencer reJiorter was told at the Sheriffs office that ailcr Nichols had had his suspicions aroused, and telephoned for Sheriff Hnndlan, who went to the jail accompanied by Officers Carnev and Gaus, of the city police force, and Deputy Sher51V Wl.it,, A M.n f?i?U "ftn/MU Eied by the two men, after they had een removed into another cell, resulted in the discovery of two bludgeons or clubs, a knife, a piece of a woman's corset steel sharpened till its edge was as keen jis a razor, and set in u wooden handle, with a wire ferrule, two or three keys made of lead, wire und tin, and some pieces of clock spring. WIIO HAVE Tin: I'UlNTKIt? Where the material to manufacture this lay-out could have been procured is not suggested, but it is argued, and the argument seems plausible, that if a friend or accomplice of the two men had furnished the tools from the outside, they would have furnished better tools. The reporter called on Jailer Nichols, who seemed very reluctant to say anything about the allair, but uuder persistent catechising admitted the substantial truth of the information already obtained. IIow his suspicions were aroused he declined to say, out said a rumor that a woman who was recently discharged iroiJl Uie jail uuu uruppeu mum vmiui led to the discovery was not true, in refusing to disclose the source of the information he was prolmbly noting with wise discretion. It is pretty well assured, however, that the common version of the discovery, to the efTect that the prisoners were working on a piece of steel, in- which they were nicking saw teeth, and that the noise they made attracted attention, is not true. The men have acted with too much intelligence throughout their confinement to mako this story credible. AIIOUT KKADY TO GO. There is reason to Relieve that the discovery was very timely, and that the men's plans were so nearly ripe that they had intended to make some sort of a break about 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon. Either a fellow prisoner or a late 1 prisoner probablv furnished information 1 to this effect. If so. Jailer Niehol's re- 1 ticenco is easily explained. ' The clubs, the jailer says, were apparently sections of a whitewash brush handle, ami the wire such its is used to . wrap brooms and brushes. It is understood that the two prisoners will be closely confined in separate cells j and careful search made at frequent in- ( tervnls hereafter until their case is final- . li. Uv Oinenurt 'IMio (run. . eral expression about town is that the , discovery will injure the men's interests . in popular judgment. It looks as if the prisoners had very littlo confidence in the result of a new trial or an appeal, or they would have waited natiently the outcome of future proceedings before prejudicing their case in this way. The men took the discovery and blockin g of their game with very had grace, and were sullen about it all the rest of the day. The presence of the clubs looks as if they expected to have to use violence in gettiug away. ANOTHER A1TK311TED KOBHKRV At John ti. Hoffman, Sr.'*, Whore Olllcer (wonii Wiih Shot. Shortly before midnight last night a jecond attempt was made to break into ind rob the residenco of Mr. John G. Hoffman, Br., at the corncr of Chapline itreet and the Centre Market alley. This ittempt was made by two men, whose general appearance, as described by Mr. tollman's two youngest sons, who saw ;homen and frustrated their plans by Iring at them, corresponds with that ndetinite description given of the two nen who tried to rob the same resilence during tho early morning hours Kiimlnv .Tnnimrv IJ Inst ntw 1 ti-lin jvhcn interrupted "bv Policeman Joe t 31enn, shot ana killed that bravo officer. n The two men who were engaged in v asfc night's attempt, like those in Jan- g iary, were roughly dressed, and one was r all,while the other was short in stature. It was about twenty minutes before r nidnight when the residents of the 8 ashionable quarter in which Mr. Hoff* 0 nann resides were aroused by two pis- e ol shots, followed in a few scconds by j hree more. e Then wore was n rusn 01 living leot on j| ho brick pavement of the alley running n etween and parallel to Ohftplineond 0 ilarkot streets, a shout or two, and then i, 11 was still until some of the people re- u iding nearby got out on the street and c aade their way to tho Hoffman resi- r, ence, from which the shots and shouts ad come.

Icarne<l. j( SUSPICIOUS MOVEMENTS. fc Mr. Hoffman's two youngest sons had li L'tired i\l?out 10:30 o'clock to the room si hey occupy jointly, situated on tho U ccoud floor on tho south sido of the h ouse. The niglit being warm, they I' id not light the gas, but dis- A jbed in the dark. One of tho boys tianced to be near a window, nd looking out he saw two ic ten in the Centre market alley, which d< ins along 31 r. Hoffman's property, T, *iing separated from it by a high brick I \ rail. A These men were standing in the ** hadow of this wall, evidently conversng in whispers and otherwise acting in a c , suspicious way. The boy's curiosity M v k*as aroused, aud bo watched them inentlv for a time, and then eommuniateu his suspicions to his brother, he older 01 the two, saying that qm ic believed the men were burglars, and hat mischief was intended. His brother inswered that he had a revolver loaded, era ind if another attempt was made to rob , he house, the reception extended the hieves would be warm. The boys watched the men a short ime longer and Anally saw them walk ip towards Chapline street. They then vent to bed. T It was a splendid night for burglars to , >perate. The rain had made things so vet and disagreeable that people did not ~rt! are to be about. The ground was dump, ing >o that the evil-minded were able to |>nt nove about with but little noise. It was . ,*ery dark and the gloom was made still ? lenser about the Hoffman place by the " ibundant trees. and nuuoLAits sum: enough. va;i Just as the Hoffinann boys were ^wo ibout do/ing oil' to sleep the younger . , me roused up and declared that he had lieard the front gate creak. Both boys has jot up and looked out, but could see the nothing. Convinced that his fancy had wel played lain laJse, the boy ami bis brother again got into bed, but they did not uo to sleep. They lay awake and 11 listened, and shortly their vigilance was P'n< rewarded by hearing the sound of j-101 crunching wood, as though some one "?* was forcing a shutter. "J1'1 Now thoroughly aroused, the l>oys Jlai again got up noiselessly, and stole to the 1?" window. Looking out, they saw the to two men at a lower window. The older Ele boy fired two shots, and the men started dre to run around the corner of the bouse. ei Hastening into another room, three more allots were fired at the men, just ^ lis they clambered over the brick wall "jo into the alley. ?f 1 Running down this alley till they ?tr( came to Alley C, they ran south on that towards Twenty-third street. * It is not thought any of the shots took J*? effect. Shortly after the firing and while f hi thoserousedwerestilltalkingovertheoc- ket currence, OfficerTruschel appeared, hav- un' ing been attracted by the shooting, lie n,a learned the story, and at once sent word to headquarters, and the night force was instructed to keep a sharp lookout for suspicious characters. shr SUSPICIOUS CUAKACTBKS SRBX LATELY. ,. } *?? ....... i,,o? 1111. llUlilllXilll IUIU IUOII ??? fyj|( ncction with his son's stories of the 'pj, lending part in the sensation, of an ex- i,U| perience that ho hail last Saturday after- ?. noon, which taken in connection onc with laMt night's occurrence, is u1(, significant. He had occasion to go out jje, into his stable in the afternoon, ami wa while there heard voices in a subdued Bj(j conversation in Alley C, in the rear. Jt ncr suddenly occurred to him to see who 0f, these persons were, and opening the f|,( same door the burglars lrnd forced last ext January, he saw two men standing near. p0j Both were strangers to him. One was jer tall, the other shorter. Both were wj, roughly dressed and wore blue llannel 0f shirts.* One of them had a scrap of ?m paper in his hands. Mr. Hoffmann asked them what they (ior wanted, having his suspicious aroused jCj by the evident surprise of the men when jng he opened the door. j)rt. The taller one answered that ho was 0f t showing his friend where the policeman was killed last winter; his friend had read of that affair and had expressed a curiosity to see the place. Those who heard this told last night were struck by several coincidences. 1 Some expressed the belief that the two ant men fired at were the same ones who j,CI1 killed Glenn last January, for which crime Christie and Kelly are now in jail. J Others save utterance to the belief be that this sccond attempt was made by con the confederates of Christie and Kelly, j?? in the hone of throwinir doubt on the ?i.? evidence against the two men, with a 0f ? view to improving their chances for get- ext tin# a new trial. . Iv t .Mr. Hoffmann said very positively in r(,n this connection that Kelly and Christie juhj were the ones who were at his place in ?0l January; of that he felt sure; this (>an second visit might possibly have been jjn( made by friends of the two in jail. tjie It is "certainly a singular coincionce ftj0] that a second attempt should lie made ,.tri to rob a prominent citizen's residence on W0] the night of the same day that the two tjov men convicted of a similar offense, and j, in connection with that offense, of the flov murder of an officer, art* discov- nmi ered preparing to escape from waf jail. The question naturally arises, did wjt not Kelly and Christie have willingand W0] trusted confederates on the outside who j, would have been on hand to assist (jnn their escape at the tiino set for the ^10 delivery, had not the plan been tj,0 frustrated?

It was known, iver, that the line had had tho i washed away irom above, below about it in so thorough a manner quite a stretch was left hanging, pported, except where it entered the ground that had not been washed. To add to this dangerous condition of things a large sycamore tree that stood near the bridjre was washed out and jammed up against the exposed pipe.

At Martin's Ferry, as usual, the streets | leading down from the bill were badly washed by the water, and the C. & P. railroad track at every street crossing | was covered deep with gravel and sand, j The dirt on Hanover street that had just , been oiled un after ln?t w?>nk'n at/irm was washed back again over the track. r The 1:20 train going east was delayed i in the vicinity of the depot for several , hours. Clark's run, as usual, was swelled to overflowing, and carried a large pile of dirt and rubbish over the railroad there. The C., L. & W. railroad, which r heretofore has always escaped damage - from storms ut this' point, is in a bud condition to-day. As the passenger 3 train was making the two o'clock trip f to Bridgeport yesterday afternoon the r engineer was given a warning signal by i a lad named Charley Hull just as the 3 engine was approaching the trestle - work near the keg and barrel r factory. The train was stopped about fifty j yards from a point where six of the large piles under the trestle had been i washed from their sockets by the swols len run. that passes through the culvert, n under the track. The lowlands between 1 the wine cellar and the orchard were soon tilled with water from the little r streams running through them, and the . water burst out the mouth of the cul vert with terrible force, carrying the 1 banks and willows for a distance of fifk' teen feet on both sides with it. The I piles on which the trestle rests are all - driven over ten feet in the ground, and r six of them were washed so loose that a i man could shake the trestle from the if top by swinging his body to and fro. The place was visited by railroad otUs cials and declared unsafe, and the train I. was backed to the depot, where it ', will lie until the damage is repaired, which will take some time, as longer t niles will have to be driven in place ol b the loosened ones. s The boy,' Hull, deserves credit for u hailing the engineer, for had the train li attempted to cross at its usual rate oi y speed, it would no doubt have been pres cipitated ovorthe trestle into the river below, a distance of fifty feet, u Keports caiue from points out the C., 0 L. & \Y. railroad that several washouts - had been caused on the railroad by tho t heavy rain. A washout at Tippecanoe t delayed trains for a little while, and at s Flushing tunnel trains were held for about an hour. e Up along the C. & P. road, on the Ohio 1 side, the past twenty-four hours have '* been marked by a steady downpour of n rain, tloing great damage to crops and 1 obstructing small railroad bridges with washings of stone and gravel to such an extent that all trains are delayed.

Two railroad bridges from above town have been carried i away and lodged against a trestle in i Uniontown. The Uniontown express i3 still lying' here, being unable to proceed further south for washout*. The rain is still pouring down, but it is thought the worst is past. The rain will do much uuuiugu to uiu growing crops, especially corn, which is badly washed out io many, places. At Washington, Pa., there was a tcrri-1 ble rain storm, which Hooded cellars and yards.
