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

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. Tliere the cause of the disurbance
was. 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

suspicious characters. shr

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? And failing to meet their tj,e
mends, might not these two mysterious ?Ujj

To add to this dangerous condition of

jammed up against the exposed pipe.
As soon as this was Iearneu, word

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

Redstone creek has broken its bounds
and submerged all the low lands of the
i town, and hundreds of people are standr
ing on the bridges watching the angry
I waters sweep by. Men are carrying
} women out of their houses to higher
i grounds, and several feet of water is
t standing in the houses.
At Leith, the whole place is subt
merged and the trains are running
through several feet of water, while the
rising water threatens to raise the
