WITNESS ADMITS
HE FIRED FOUR
SHOTS AT GOAD
' (Continued from KlriU Page.)

Xor tho defense.
"No, sir," answered ?'lande.
"Wag ho In your t.'nclo Sidim's Uno
of lire'.'"
"Jle might have been."
"Did you shoot Judge Hassle?"
"1 did not."
Fired 1'our Shots at Uoad.
Continuing, Claude >sald ho llrod four
?holt, aiming eacb time at the head ol
Dexter Ooad. Then his pistol stopped
working. In the meantime, said tho
Witness, h'ldna Allen hud advanced to?
ward tlie officers, and Cluude got bo
hlnd him for protection. A-s sown ai
possrble he reached the street. There
he saw .sidna Allen, and saw Mr. (load
und others Siegln to tire from the steps,
and Sidna returning the shots.
On the court green, Claude -aid, hu
met his brother, Victor Allen. Who
said to him; "For Uod's sake, don't
bhout any more."
Having but bwo cartridges left,
Claude, afraid to go anywhere without
more, triod to get into the drug store
opposite, but war, prevented by thoso
<'ii t;.. Inside nolding the door. Then
he described the departure of the Al?
iens for their homes.
When arrested, Bald Claud.', he had
tWO plstPls. Uno of these was his own,
Which he had s-curcd that morning
from tils brother, who had Just brought
it to llilisville. *t'he othsr was handed
to hltri ;'ft'r the shooting, he thinks, by
Ski tin ISdwards. It was empty when
he got it.
Judge Staples ruled out questions
regarding Claude Swanson Allen's
wanderings In the mountains during
the two weeks he was at large. It
was held that It was sufficient to know
he had been a fugitive from Justice.
In conclusion of his direct examina?
tion, the witn-ss su'.d ne attended Fair
view School, and took a course in
r-horthaiirt and typewriting in ?? busi?
ness college lr. Kalsigh. He had ex
pect ad to marry during the ??0mii:g
summer.
The cross-examination was conduct?
ed by John S. Drap sr. Answeilng a
question as to why ho whispered witn
his father In the bar Just before the
I hooting. Claude said r.e thought 't was
not right to speak aloud In the court?
house. He felt sur;.- that h'ldna Alien
Ohd Dexter Coal fired the lirst shots
at practically the sann- time.
After the tragedy Claude said he
went home. Th?n he secured s-?rn?; on*
to carry the mall for his brother, and
went back to the north side of th*
mountain "to see what the bays wire
going to do?whether they would glee
themselves up or not." lie was uhuble
to see them, as they had gone.
On his way home that day he secured
somi cartrldnis from toe store of Siona
Allen, his uncle. He had not rfesu
Sidna Allen since that time, he said.
On redirect examination ?"laude said
that ho had heard or seen nutnlug at
any time pr ? .ding the shooting which
would lead him t-? believe that Floyd
Allen conspired with any other persoit
to bring about the tragedy.
Victor Allen on "?tnnd.
Second only to the evidence, of Claud j
Allen in lnl< rest was that of Victor
M. Allen, the older of the two sons of
Floyd Allen, the prisoner at the bar.
Victor Is twenty-nln i years oil. mar?
ried and has two children. He owns
Iiis own farm, adjoining his father's,
and is a rutal mall carrier from Can i
post-office. Ho hud not been w-e!l and
did not go to Hlllsvllle at the begin?
ning of his father's trial. He received
n message to bring' his cousin, Sidna
ICdwardS, to court as a witness, and did
r<o. He was In the courtroom when the
Jury came in the evening before the
.??hooting. Victor sabi h? was right
: .inded. but thnt he could shoot with
?Mther hand. This was in reference to
the evidence of a witness, who said
he saw Victor and Sidna Allen on that
evening standing by th.-> bar when tln>
Jury enme in, each with hi* right hand
? ?n n pistol.
Victor Allen had left his own pistol
.it home, but had brought his brother
Claude's to Hlllsvllle. When they
roomed together. Victor gave It 10
Claude to lay on a table, and the next
morning the young brother took it.
The witness said Sidna F.dwardS also
had a pistol.
On the fatal morning Victor was In
the courtroom. He heard a shot tlr<?d,
then hbw Dexter Qoad begin to shoot

Asked cross-examination by W. ?
Poage why he took a big pistol on a
, peaceful mission to court, he said he
\ did not know whjri ho left Home but
that he might leturn oh Wednesday
' night at a late hour, and he had to
. go through the mountains. Jlc told

Identification mentioned by a witness"
who claims to have s:cn Victor take
part In the "hooting.
"What did Wesley KdwardB do?" In',
was a-k'd
'Took out his pistol and shot in the
direction of thu clerk's desk."
"How fast?"
"I didn't stay to see."
"Did you sou I'rlel Allen?'
"Yes. on the Hour in the rear of the
courtroom. I did not ?ce him with a
pistol."
"Did you see Sldna LMwards?"
"I saw him as 1 got to the door, and
aLso on the green. I .-aw no pistol in
? his hands/'
I on the green, the witness saw Wes
[ ley Edwards raise his pistol toward
I the courthouse, but did not know if he
shot, lie maintained that he did not
know whether hie father. Floyd Allen,
had <i pistol or not.
In accounting fer the parties. Victor
Allen was much more satisfactory than
Claude. The latter eouid see nothing,
It seemed, save Dexter (.load.
Victor said he could not locate the
first shot, but that the noise sounded
us though it were beyond his father.
This would put It ariioim the court of?
ficers.
The stable episode was told at
length. Kloyd Allen made tho young
stable keeper give him a bugey that
j belonged !<? another, but which he
J could not ride In because of his
l wounds. Victor Allen could not ex
! plain why ho did not get his own
; buggy, except that his lather had
called for the other. The witness said
be old not go to th.- stable to get the
Imises ready for departure just after
the shooting, but to get .iway from the
combat in the courthouse.
On redirect examination, Virtor Al?

Ayers was in the courtroom, but said
that she and tin- dead girl won- so
Jostled by the crowd Into every post
tion that it was Impossible to say
from which direction the fatnl shot
was ilrcd.
Her bus bund say a deputy sh-rtft |
with three pistols In the court room j
that morning. On cross-examination
she described this deputy as wearing
white duck trousers, to the amusement
of the crowd. Discussion of those
trousers occupied some time.
It was continued during th<' OXSml
nation of tho J. Burnett, who failed!
to confirm the pants theory of identi?
fying a. deputy sheriff. It scented
that tli" men who it was thought had
th" three pistols did not answer to
Mrs. Ayers's description.
Burnett said he had held no conver?
sation with Sidna Allen and Floyd
i Allen about keeping horses, it then
turned out that it was Burnett'? son
whom Floyd Allen Is said to hive
told that he had not long to stay III
llilisvilio that morning.
Treasurer J. B. Marshall, of Carroll
county, had in his possession for a
time a pistol which proved to be
Sheriff Webbs, it contained four
cartridges. Mr. Marshall. shedding
further light on those white duck
j pants, said that Deputy Sheriff Dalton,
who it was supposed, hud ?vorn them,
' had a red mustache. As he had
been de-scribed us clean shaven, tills
I further complicated matters.

I Of the attorneys for Floyd Allen at
I the time of the courthouse shooting,
i gave Victor Allen a good reputation.
He had not heard Claude? and Fuel's1
discussed. The Floyd Allen caae, he
said, !.ad b.-cr. continued once cm the
j motion of tho Commonwealth. He had j
i not seen anything which would In
idlcate conspiracy.
! Mr. Draper objected to this quos- |
liov. saying it was unlikely that Mr.
Tlpton, being a reputable citizen and
attorney, would hear of such a con?
spiracy. But the court said that the
question might be allowed. The wit?
ness said he would have reported any- i
thing of the sort if he had heard It.
Mid .Not Know They Were Armed.
On cross-examlnatldh, Mr. Tipton
said he did not know that Floyd Allen
and the others of the family were
armed In court. Floyd become very
angry with O. W. Edwards duiing the
trial, and the witness calmed hint.
It then came out that Judge Massle
had made some remarks to the Aliens
at the last December term of the court
about Interfering with witnesses. At
that time Floyd Allen arose and dc- j
nled he had been guilty of such prac- i
tlcos, whereupon Judge Massle said ha
wus glad to hear it.
If necessary, added the judge, he,
would bring In the State troops In or
der to have Justice In the Carroll,
i court.
In addition. Judge Mussic t'jld Jack
Allen, then an officer, not to serve a
warrant In any case growing out of
in. schoolhouse row. which had pre?
cipitated all the trouble.
Harriett Allen, a son of Jack, It was
brought but. had sworn out a warrant
for perjury against Deputy Sheriff

ness, hud helped Floyd Allen at tho
hotel where ho was taken when wnund
i ed. Ills evidence ?*as unimportant.
; Judge Staples refused to permit a
question as to whether the witness
had received threats of personal VlOl
, dice because he hud helped the defense
get witnesses.
Recalled to the stand. Jack Allen said'
' he had never had a warrant for Sam
' uels. but nad one for Peter Faster, the
principal witness against Floyd Al?
len, for shooting nt Floyd. It was
this process of which Judge Massie
had spoken. Jack told of a row he had
i With Samuels, and of .1 pistol drnw
? lug contest in which both engaged
j without injury.
Jessie William? testified that he
heard Deputy Sheriff Edwards say that
Sheriff Webb fired once or twice before
Floyd Allen shot. On cross-examina?
tion the witness said hi worked for
Jack Allen. Williams was tho only

Mr. Jordan, who was born and reared
ir, this city, became a memiber of Mos

less than eighteen years old. It Is
said that he walked from Richmond
to Colonel Moshy's headquarters and
unceremonlbusly entering the chief's
tent announced that he hHd volun?
teered.
After a few moments- the colonel
dismissed him with scant notice, say?
ing that he was too young to take
part in syeh serious business The
boy's rejoinder probably would have
sent an older man to the guardhouse,
hut Mosby recognized that It was Just
that kind of material that made his
command famous, and ordered him to
enlist and get a horse the best way
he could. He remained with the com?
mand until after the surrender of Lee
and Johnston, taking part In most ot
I the famous engagements, though he
never received a wound of any ^ ? ? 11 -

DENIES EVIDENCE

Chief Witness So Far Against
Judge Archbald Recalled
to Stand.
Washington. Mac 10.?Edward J.
Williams', of Scran ton. Pa., chief wit?
ness so far rigalnst Judge Robert v\.
Archbald, of the Commerce Court, to?
day practically denied before the
House Committee on the Judiciary
some of the testimony he had fflvon
against the Judge on Wednesday.
Williams was a partner with Judge.'
Archbald' in negotiations for buying;,
a culm bank from tho Krlo Railroad
to sell at a profit of $12.000 to tne
Lackawunna and Wyoming Railroad,
The Judge at that time had thj Brio's
so-called lighterage eases In his court.
Tho committee is Investigating lo de
cldc It impediment proceedings
should be brought against the judge.
A. S. Worthlngton, counsel for the
accused jilrist. undertook the redirect
examination of Williams, and called
his attention to the copy of an as?
signment of the culm lmnlc property
that he was alleged to have made t"
W. P, Roland and "a sllen' party."
Previously Williams had admitted
I having such an assignment ??etoro he
procured option, on the Erie culm
banks, and had explained that the
"silent party'" was Judge Arcbbald.
To-day, however, upon reading a ropy,
of the assignment against Williams
declared it was not the paper he "ad
s-giitd. 11?; admitted that th ; signa?
ture attached was his. but repudiated
'.is contents. This led Attorney
Worthington to ask the witness if he

admitted it was possible he might
have ligned pipers tort he COUlJ not

Williams also repudiated the letter
Introduced In evidence Wednesday. In
which he related having told W. H.
ltoland tl"-nt If h- had discounted one
of Judge Arehbald's notes a case he
had bettors that Jurist, which was de?
cided against him, might haw re?
sulted differently, The witness ad
mitted having said som< thing like that
to ltoland. but ho denied that the lan?
guage used in the) letter In evidence
signed bv him ever came from his
Hps.
it w.is also developed on cross-ex?
amination that Judge Archhald paid
Williams'' fare from Scranton to
