THE MURDEROUS MOLLIES.
Tardy Reckoning for a Half
Tardy Reckoning for a Half Forgotten Crime.
The Murder of Superintendent Alex
Rea-Leading Molly Maguires Arrested—
—A Man Stoned to Death.
Pottsville, Nov. 9 It is now a little
more than eight years since Alexander
Rea, General Superintendent for the
Locust Mountain Coal and Iron Com
pany, was murdered in the eatly mor
ning near Centralia, Columbia county.
Pennsylvania. The crime created great
excitement throughout tht coal region, as
Mr. Rea was a man beloved and respect
ed by all. His body was found a the
woods near the road by some passing
miners, near it his horse, tied to a tree,
He had been robbed of his gold watch
and otner valuables. Tom Donahoe.
just sentenced to two years imprisonnv-nt
for his share in the assault uoon Wm,
M. Thomas, and the notorious Pat Hes
ter, the chief of Mollies of Northumber
land county, were arrested ior the crime.
Tom Donahoe was tried in Columbia
county but the Molly Maguires swore for
him, and a cowardly jury acquitted him,
whereupon their attorney asked the
Court to enter a nol. pros, in the case of
Hester, which was done The seqtiol will
show that Hester, would have done bet
ter to stand his trial, with the certainty
of acquittal; for now, more than eight
years after the crime, he is fairly on the
road to the gallows.
Yesterday Hester, Michael Graham.
and Patrick McHugh, three leading Mol
ly Maguires, were lodged in' jail here
charged with the Rea murder. The tes
timony against them is very strong, hav
ing been givenby one who participated
in the crime, but whose name is kept a
secret for the present, as the-e are several
others of the gang who are yet to arrest
ed. It seems that the plan to rob Rea
was concocted in a saloon in Ashland on
the night before the murder. Hester at
the time had laid a scheme to rob and
murder Major!. Claude White, as he
was on the road to his colliery with the
money to pay the employees; but he
postponed that to take part in the Rea
affair. Hester actedas chief of the gang
They were posted in the woods near the
road between Centralia and Bell's tunnel
and when Rea have in sight Hester gave
the signal by throwing up his hat, where
upon the entire gang approached Rea
and demanded his money and valuables,
which he at once gave up. He no doubt
knew some of them, and dead men tell
no tales; they determined to kill him,
and all fired their revolvers. He ran into
the woods, when one of the gang followed
him and fired the fatal shot. The booty
was men divided, and tne witness re
ceived the gold watch, which he after
ward sold for $30. It was the first case
in which the Molly Maguires added rob
bery to murder. Graham and McHugh
are neid as accesories.
After the murder Hester said to his
gang that it was a pity they had killed
Kea instead ol going for a man with
more money. But it was not long after
that Major White was attacked as he was
going from Pottsville to Swatara with a
large amount of money to pay the col
liery hands. He had, however, taken
the precaution to take a guard with him,
and a tight ensued in which it was be
Iieved that policeman Clauser shot of
the gang. Clauser was himself murdered
at Hazleton a little more than a year ago
quite likely for the part he took in de
fending Major White on this occasion.
The defence in this case endeavored
to obtain Hester's discharge on the
ground that he had been previously tried,
but he was committed without bail. Many
more arrests will follow soon, and more
startHng developments may be looked
for. Next week the trials of the mur
derers of F. W. Langdon will begin here,
This crime was committed a number of
years ago. Jack Kehoe will also be tried
for the murder of Gomer James. Thus
the courts of the four counties, Schuylkill.
Carbon, Luzerne, and Columbia, are
likely to be busy for some time to come
with the Molly Maguire murders, and the
present number of death sentences, ten
in all, is likely to be more than doubled
are three months pass over.
And yet a portion of the gang appear
to be still determined upon the perpetra
tion of crime. Only last week an inof
fensive German miner named John
Boshee was killed at Locust Dale by
three ruffians, James Laughlin, a shool
teacher, and John Lennon and Michael
Colgan, miners. Laughlin had a grudge
against 1 nomas tianney. They waylaid
him, but finding that he was guarded by
his brother Kobert, Boshee, rogleson
and Keaton, they fell upon Boshee and
beat him to death with stones. They
were arrested and lodged in jail here to
await trial. Last month the new arrivals
at the jail numbered 30, and this month
promises to equal it.
THE GREAT SHOW.
The and the Ancient Ruins Arizona
—The Canon of the Colorado—Mr.
The United States geographical and
geological survey, of which Mr. Hayden
chief, introduces ns to another Indian
tribe who are dwellers in houses in this
case of stone the Moqui tribe of North
ern Arizona, and to the ancient ruins of
what is supposed to have been the work
their ancestors. In the end of the
government building, set as windows in
its walls, we are presented with views of
the grand and beautiful scenery npon the
Colorado river of the West, and also with
pictures of the ancient villages of Ari
zona, among them being houses in Wol
pi, the house of the governor of Tewa,
and the entrance to the Shi-pau-i-luv-vr.
Upon the wall hangs a large picture up
canvas of a scene in an underground
chamber of this last named ancient vil
lage of villainous name. It is called
"The Prayer for Rain," aud depicts seven
the male and female inhabitants en
gaged in incantations over a fire. The
chief performer is on his knees vigor
ously blowing upon a little box contain
the embers, and by him stands a mai
beating a flat plate upon the ground
ears of maize, white, green and red in
color, and upon tbe top of each of two
forked sticks stands a bird. They need
ed to pray for rain in that ariu country,
got it so seldom that they must have
been discouraged. The Moqui maidens,
see by this and other pictures, ar
range their hair in side puffu of tbe shape
a wagon wheel and a trifle less in size.
Num-pay-yu, a moqui maiden of Te
qua, Arizona, and the bell of tbe tribe, is
thus portrayed in her picture that adorns
wall ; it is the sign that she is nn-
married j when married she will letdown
her hair. These Moqul dames and datn
els seem to do the hard work. An inte
rior scene shows us a row of them on
their knees behind some primitive corn
strinding apparatus that causes them to
look as though they were scrubbing
clothes on a washboard : antl In a corner
seta the head of the family on his haunch
es lurily smoking his pipe,
The pottery from the ancient ruins of
these towns, and the ruins themselves,
are very interesting to those who have
tiny taste at all for archaeological studies.
Here is the model of a part of an ancient
cave ruin found on the Rio de Chelly.
Arizona, and asiJe of it is another model
of the villuge or series of houses restored
to thf ir original condition, as it is conjec
tured to have been. The houses occupy
a long ca. e-like crevice in the Bide of (a
bluff, which has been, to a large extent,
dug out to contain them. They are con
nected together and run a distance of
600 feet, being fifty feet above tl e valley,
and the bluffs rise two hundred feet
abovt them. The central feature is a
three-story tower, of the ruins of which,
or of one similar to it. a mnrinl lunm.
seuted to us. Its diameter is forty feet,
and it is built of roughly dressed stone,
Ltid in mortar. The center is a circular
chamber, surrounded on the outside with
lourteen small rooms all around the cir
cumference of the tower. The central
room baa its floor depressed towards tha
centre, and is supposed to have been the
council house estufa, it is called, or
sweat house ; a very appropriate Dame
indeed for a council chamber ; and par
ticular applicable to our national con
gressional hulls. There is another style
of houses much more singular than these
cave houses, called cliff houses. They
are built of masonry, in crevices in the
sides of j reeipitous cliffs of rocks, and
the wonder is how the material was ever
got up there, and how the people came
up and down to them. It seems clear
that they could not have been intended
for ordinary dwellings, and it is conjec
tured that they were houses of refuge in
time of war particularly for the women
nnd children, There were probably lad
ders to them, which have decayed away.
or steps cut in the rock which time has
eroded and broken down. We are shown
a house in the side of the cliff iu Mancos
canon, that is 800 feet above tbe valley,
aud above it the cliff rises perpendicular
ly for many hundred .eet. The rock pro
jects over the house, so that, it needs no
root, it is of two stories, each story six
feet in height, the floors, of course, hav
ing decayed away. At the side of the
house an esplanade or yard lias been
cleared away, which in extent is 20 by
10 feet, and furnishes the only prome
nade place which'the oceupanuj had.
TILDEN WILL TAKE HIS SEAT.
We assure our Democratic friends and
the lovers of peace and order that they
may possess their- souls in patience. We
cannot be cheated out of the presidency.
IfMr. Tilden is fairly elected, he will
take his seat constitutionally and peace
fully. He will notb: fraudulently coun-
tedout. Heconnotbe. The muttering
on the streets and in the public gatherings
in all the land are ominously indicative
of the purpose of the American people to
maintain fair play. They can endure
the election of a Republican president or
of a Democratic president, but they will
not endure the election of a Republican
or a Democratic president by a palpably
fraudulent count at the point of the bayo
net. This Is the end of the republic, and
there is a popular determination that the
