THE BOOTHMYSTERY I
One of the Pall Bearers Tells a
Sensational Story
i
Says the Body Buried as John Wilkes
Booth Was Not That
ot Booth
I
I
DEVELOPS INTERESTING STORY
The recent dispatches slating that II i
1
man who committed suicide at Enid
I T In January has been identified
ai John Wilkes Booth president Lin I
dens slayer has revived interest InI I
the somewhat hackneyed mytoryC
of the actors traglo fate It has boon t
claimed for many rears from time to I
time that Booth was really never shot i
captured or killed and sensational I
stories have flourished for a tlmo and
then been exploded as myths This
last one may share the fate of its pro
dcoessors but following It comes the
following story from Baltimore Md
Basil Moxley the veteran doorkeep
er at Fords opera house in this city
and the sole survivor of the psllbearers
who carried what is supposed to be C
Wilkes Booths remains to the tomb I
in Green Mount cemetery today made
the surprising statement that It was
only a mock funeral Tho lato John
T Ford theatrical manager Oharlts
Bishop the comedian and Samuel
Glenn wore the other pallbearers
Mr Morley has preserved silence
until this time non account of the
Booth family He now says I
have never cared much about talk log
In regard to the truthfulness of the
statement that John Wilkes Booth was
burled in Green Mount cemetery for I
there has always been a certain
amount of doubt existing as to wheth
er or not the assassin of President Lin
coIn was ever captured killed or even
sort But In order that I might clear J
up at least one supposition Ill tell J
yon positively that his body is not and
never was buried In this city to my
knowledge Certainly the body burled
in Green Mount was not that of Booth
Never were any two things in this
world which resembled each other less
than that body did John Wilkes Booth
I had known Booth all my life and
was a very close to the family which
I think Is shown by the fact that they
asked me to act as pallbearer at the fu
neral of the dead man whom they had I
been led to believe was that of their
relative I saw the body several times C
o
and examined It The hair on tbeI
dead body was of a reddish brown col
or while Booths was black
Mosley says further
However that mere detail made
no difference for we all knew at the
time that the bad was not that of
John Wilkes Booth and my examina
lion was only prompted by curiosity
alone not that I believed for one min
ute that the body was that of the IIj
raisin You see the whole affair I
was planned by friends of the family r
tad was done for purpose which they t
deemed imperative Mrs Booth the I
mother of John Wilkes Booth wasi i
naturally nearly prostrated with grief d
it her sons action and the stories ofi i
his horrible death In the barnand lat
ir the report that the government badi i
taken charge of his body only acted as
a vehicle to a general breaking down
if her systemand for a time it seemed
is though she would not survive that
hock Then In order that the affair might 1
become a thing of the past as won aI I
posilhle some friends determined that
U wald be best to bring te body
fete and bury It In the frilly lot In
Green Mount Through these frlenos
Mrs Booth applle to the government
for the body This brought matters
to a crisis for I do not believe that
John Wilkes Booth was ever killed In
i that barn and if any one was slain it
was some innocent man who knew
nothing of the real assassin
At any rate It was Incumbent
upon the government to furnish a
body to make good their report that
Booth bad been killed and they did I
so What we got and what was sent I
here for the body of John Wilkes I
Booth is what I have already described I

never will believe that Booth was
killed and am confident that heel
caped bat howI have never been able
to make up my mind cr have I anT
positive knowledge that ho did Yet
the one point that has always canted
me to doubt the various stories of his
death ii that If he was killed why did
not snmo one receive the Immense re
ward offered for All capture dead or
sliest You can search all records in
Washington or Interview any officials
then in office who are now alive and I
will wager yon will bo unable to learn
of any reward being paid for the Vellv
cry of John Wilkes Booths body to
the government
I also remember several rumors to
the effect that Booth had been seen at
tho crossroads near Pen mar and I
have beard men say that they had
drank with him In that locality bat I
must say I believe those rumors were
of the same material as those hatched

Another incident bearing indirectly
on the case is reported by a prominent
Paducah man who was talking in the
Palmer house last season to young
Jnnlns Booth who Is a nephew of
John Wilkes Booth and plaved here in cfI I
Mrs LeMoynes company several
months ago Ho declared to the Padu
cah iran that John Wilkes Booth was
never captured or killed and If he
was dead ho died a natural death
