Another Forgery Chargei
Arrest oi Judge Snyder.
Committed to Jail for Ten
Days.
Our readers will remember that a
man calling himself Judge Charles
James Snyder was arrested on the 2i th
of June on acharge of felony, in having
attempted to negotiate a draft for $5000
through the First National Bank of this
city, which said draft was mailed at
Kit Carson, Colorado, to New York,
and stolen from the mail. The Poet
Office Department Laving no knowledge
of any robbing having been committed,
Snyder was discharged from custody.
It has, in the meanwhile, come to the
knowledge of the Department that
there has been a robbery committed
and that some five or six drafts were
stolen.
On Monday morning Captain Conant
received the following dispatch :
Denver, Coi.., July 15, 1872.
Chief of Police, Wheeling, West Virginia :
Charles J. Snyder was arrested in
your towD on the 27th of June for at*
tempting to negotiate a stolen draft for
$5000. He forged an endorsement on
a New York draft and got the money,
$1150, from Chick, Brown & Co., of
Kit Carson, Colorado on the 5th of
June. Hold him on the charge if still
in custody. I will write particulars.
J. N. Donlkt,
Special Agent, P. 0. D. a
It was ascertained that Snyder was
at the St. James. He had been absent
from the city but had returned. Capt.
Conant telegraphed Special Agent Don
ley that Snyder had been released on
first charge but was still in the city.
In answer to that dispatch Capt.
Conant received the following:
Denver, July lf?, 1S72.
Chief of Police :
Arrest Snyder on charge of forgery
made in my dispatch yesterday, and
hold him until you hear from Depart
ment at Washington.
.1. M. Donley,
S. A. P. 0. D.
Accordingly the case was committed
to the hands of Deputy Sergeant Luke
Conant, who arrested Snyder as a
fugitive from justice ami took him be
fore Squire Johnston, where an affida
vit was made charging him to be a
fugitive from the Territory of Colorado,
and with forging an endorsement on a
check and uttering the same. While
the accused was before the Justice the
following was received :
Kit Carson, Coi. , July 16.
Chief of Police :
Snyder passe>l forged check on us for
$1153. Arrest him on charge of
forgery. Cuick, Brown <te Co.
Snyder took the whole matter very
coolly. He admitted all the facts set
forth in the different telegrams, except
the charge of forgery. He claimed that
the case was one over which the Justice
had no jurisdiction.
In order to give the parties making
the charge an opportunity to procure
witnesses, the Justice sent SDvJer to
jail for ten days, in default of giving
bail in the sum of $1200 to answer.
This is a very extraordinary case.
Snyder claims to be Judge of a United
States District Court in Colorado, and
if his claim is not true it is 6trange that
no one has been able to controvert it.
He is evidently a thorough lawyer and
a man of more than ordinary ability.
Nearly thirty days has elapsed since
his first arrest on a similar charge and
he has made no attempt to escape as a
guilty man would, and yet charges of
felony are continually arising against
him. He is either a cooler operator
than we ever saw before, or a badly
persecuted man. But time will tell.

'Raw for the Idi.kwii.ds. ? The game
of base ball played on the Fair Grounds
yesterday between the Star club, of
Steubenville, and the ldlewilds, of this
city, for the championship of Alrica>
resulted in a victory for the Idlewilde'
we are told, by a score of 26 to 8. Capt
Pea Nut Scott led the victorious Idle
ones to a glorious victory. We knew he
would. It was impossible to beat him.
Tut Scott in the centre field, grease hie
jips with molasses and he is bound to
catch all the flies that come his way.
Those Steubenville "mokes" have no
business playing base ball against
Wheeling "coons," that's what's the
matter. Considered as a picnic, the
affair was not a success. There was
too much water for enjoyment and not
enough to go swimming in.

against him. He was fined $10 and

Samuel Robinson, the colored brother
who had a lively time on Saturday
evening, with two white men near
Market street bridge, was up on a
charge of disorderly conduct. It being
shown that he was not the offender
and that he only acted in self-defense
he was discharged from custody.
William Ritz, one of the men who
attacked Robinson, was fined $5 and
costs.
Augustus Hoffman, a resident of the
"Bloody First," was up on a charge of
abusing his family and making things
red hot in the neighborhood generally.
J He was fined $5 and costs and in de

reasonable as those of any other manu

1 he Fknissl'i,a Road. ? The proposed
extension of John street across the
Peninsula to Pulton has been surveyed
J by order of the Board of Public Works
of this State, and the cost of making
the improvement fixed at $55,000, in
cluding right of way, bridges, Ac., The
survey was made by authority of an act
passed by the Legislature last winter
Joseph D. DuBoieand Thomas O'Brien
have been appointed to solicit the
funds and the right of way necessary to
make the road. The work should not
be permitted to depend on private sub.
scription. The Board of Supervisors
and City Council should at once take
I measures to make the road. It will be
of great benefit to both city and coun
ty, and far better and less costly than
the proposed tunnel under the hill in
North Wheeling. Let the city and
county take hold of the matter at once,
and push it through to a successful
completion.

A Good Arravoemf.nt. ? The order
passed by Council at a late meeting dU
recting that the street lamps shall be
kept lighted on dark and rainy nights
even though the almanac does an
nounce that the moon is shining, is one
of the best ever passed by that body,
ami gives general satisfaction. Tak*
night before last as a specimen. Had
the street lamps been unlighted as for
merly was the case on such occasions,
the city would have been as dark as
Erebus, giving a fine opportunity to
roughs and scoundrels to attack belated
citizens. ^ ^

Dirty. ? The Inteligcrxer of yester
day contains the following. If it were
possible to make a meaner assault on
the family of the dead, that paper would
publish it:
Politicians are getting active; we
would caution our readers, however,
against making any rash promises as to
whom they will vote for at the coming
election, as such promises sometimes
tend to fearful results. Only a few days
since a gentleman in this city, after the
most persistent importunity, promised
to vote for a certain candidate, but in
leas than an hour after he relented, and
went straight way and committed sui
cide.
We don't know what candidate is
referred to, nor do we care. The unfor
tunate death of the mau referred to
should have prevented the affair being
alluded to in this tlippant, heartless
manner. A decent regard for the feel
ings of the unfortunate man's family
should have prevented, if nothing else.

The Superior Mowing Machine. ?
Wherever this machine has been intro
duced its extraordinary good qualities
are acknowledged and appreciated by
farmers, and it receives universal com-|
inundation as the great improvement of
the age in harvesters, giving as it doe.?
the lightest draught, with the greatest
durability and simplicity in constric
tion, aud the least friction.
The high estimation in which it is
held was on yesterday demonstrated by
a farmer who called at the oilice of the
Superior Machine Company in this
city. He said, after trying all
kinds of machines he had purchased
the Superior Mower, and that there
wa9 no machine in the market so easily
hauled by horses or that gave such en
tire satisfaction to himself and to all
who saw it at work as the Superior.
II is neighbors were all anxious to try
it
This, remember, is the testimony of
a practical man, a farmer well known
in this community and whose name
the company can give as a reference to
those who desire it. This is but an in
dication of the favor this machine has
met with. Farmers, if you want a
harvester that will give complete satin
faction and that will work as well on
the hill side as on the level ground,
call and see the Superior at the com
pany's office, or send for a circular.
