Wheeling come* via Pittsburgh b
either the Baltimore St Ohio or th

charges are largely la excess of wha
Pittsburgh manufacturers pay. On th
other band, with a direct line betivee
Wheeling and the coke region, the Iocs
manufacturers will pay possibly a littl

;[ IS HE INSANE?
' County Physician Arinbrccht now
Making u Careful Inquiry
: INTO LOUIS liLIAS' CONDITION.
[ DR. ACKERMAN. WHO ATTENDED
1 ELIAS RECENTLY. SAYS HE IS
SANE ?JUSTICE ROGERS HAS
PREPARED FOITR WARRANTS,
j WHICH WILL BE SERVED IP
TH?3 INQUIRY RESULTS IN A
! VERDICT THAT THE HOUSE
BURNER IS .SANE.
i
I.ou!s Ellas, the man who deliberately
set his own house on Are and then
flred at the firemen and police officer
i when they came In -respon.se to the
alarm, insane or free from mental aberration?
This is a question that is not yet answered
to the satisfaction of the authorities.
If the man Is found insane, he
will be sent to state hospital for the in'
sane, at Weston, without delay, by Justice
Rogers; if he is found to be in possession
of hi9 mental faculties, on the
other hand, he will face warrants for his
arrest, making four serious charges,
two of which are penitentiary offenses.
Justice Rogers and County Physician
"K* t. Armhrpfht conferred veriterdav
1 afternoon, regarding: the case. Before
! this, the Justice had secured some depositions,
which gave conflicting testimony.
For instance, Ellas' sister be1
llevea her brother is out of his mind.
1 On the other hand, the blank sent Dr.
Ackerman, who recently attended Ellas,
was returned to the Justice, endorsed,
"The man Is sane."
At 5 o'clock in the afternoon. Dr. Armbrecht
went to the county Jail, where
Ellas is confined, and made a thorough
examination of the man, with the result
that he became of the opinion that the
man is insane. When an Intelligencer
reporter asked Dr. Armbrecht whether
he had come to a decision, he replied
that before he would make hl6 report
to the Justice he would make further
investigation to-day, including the examination
of neighbors and another examination
of the prisoner himself.
Since Dr. Ackerman's statement that
the man is sane was made, Justice
Rogers has prepared for eventualities
by preparing four warrants which will
be served upon Ellas in the event that
the examination results 1 a verdict that
he is sane. These warrants charge four
serious crimes, two of which are penitentiary
offenses. They are:
First?Setting fire to a dwelling.
Second?Assaulting an officer, with
intent to maim, disfigure and kill.
Third?Carrying concealed weapons.
Fourth?Discharging firearms on the
streets.
It will be seen that Mr. Ellas is between
two fires, and cannot escape excepting:
by a miracle. If insane, he goes
to "Weston; if sane he face* four serious
charges, with chances for conviction
as near certainty as anything that
ever came up in local criminal annals.
