A DEATHBED CONFESSION.
A Dving Man Tolls How He Killed Hia Wife and Represented That She Had Eloped. j>,,^'oy ; !' iPo.i Dispatch to New York Sun. A startling revelation was made here to day by I*r. J. T. Quinton, a prominent phy sician, which dears up a mystery of more than ten years' standing, Three weeks ago .Silas Crossby, a quarry hand, was suddenly taken sick, and Dr. Quinton was called in to see him. Crossbv’s trouble soon devel oped into typhoid pneumonia, and ho asked the doctor if his case was a hopeless one to let him know it, because he had a secret to reveal which he could not take to the grave. The physician told him that, if he desired to niake any preparation for death, religious or otherwise, lie would advise him to do so, as his disease was necessarily fatal, though lie might linger some time. The doctor was astounded when Crossby said the confession he wished to make was one of murder—that he had killed his wife. The doctor suggested the propriety of having either a minister of the Gospel or an otticer of the law to wit ness the confession, but Crossby said neither was necessary. He then told the following story: •‘Sly full name is Silas Aaron Crossby, ami lam an Englishman by birth. Soon after arriving iu this country we came to j’restonville, where I have resided and worked ever since. The family consisted of myself and wife and Hiram Wellington, a feilow countryman, who took passage with us, and who remained with me until the night of my wife’s death. Wellington was a co-laborer of mine, and we were much at tached to each other. I was married before I came to this country. My wife’s name was Sarah Farnsworth. The union was not a happy one, and I spent much of my time in meditating over the best means to get rid of my wife without jeopardizing my own personal safety. Wellington was bit terly opposed to her, and frequently made the remark that if he was in my place he M ould get rid of her. I was encouraged by these remarks, because I knew if I wanted his assistance to get her out of the way it would all right. We talked frequently thereafter about the mat ter, but nothing definite was settled upon. It was, however, decided that Wel lington should be in her company at the house as much as possible, that I might trump up false charges of infidelity against her. But this amounted to nothing, as she defiantly refuted the charges, and more fre quently quarrels were the result. The trouble and unhappiness of the household were known to no one outside. Even the immediate neighbors were unaware of the trouble, as my wife visited no one, and was seldom seen with a neighbor. In the early part of September, 187", I came home from work in rather a moody state of mind, and began fault-finding the moment I entered the house. Wellington was with me. A quarrel between myself and wife arose, when, in a moment of passion, I rushed at her, and getting my hands tightly around her throat I choked her to death. When we found that life was extinct we carried the body up-stairs and laid it on the bed. and then discussed the best way to dispose of it. Welling ton said that as I had killed her he would dispose of the remains, and to throw off sus picion he would leave town immediately, and the storv of an eloyement of Mrs. Silas Crossby with Henry Wellington would cover up the whole affair? Wellington carried the body away between 1 and _ o’clock in the morning, and said it was all right. He buried it in one of the old abandoned quar ries, which have long since been tilled in with refuse. Bolling ton dressed himself and left the town. Before going, however, he wrote a letter, supposed to be dictated by Mrs. Crossby, to me, and left it in her room, as we all occupied separate rooms. The letter gave in detail a full account of her unhappiness with me, and in substance stated the reason of her going away with BelKngton was to escape the abuse and rrsecution of a tyrannical husband. retired to bed after Bellington left, but the struggles of a dying woman were continually before me. "The next morning I hurried out to the neighbors and those of my working companions and informed them of Wellington's treachery in eloping with my wife, and produced the letter referred to, which I characterized as Wellington’s own work. The circumstances of the supposed elopment, and the excite ment of that morning are still fresh in the minds of the people here, but my life has been a most wretched one. I ’ was con tinually haunted by her appearance, both at home and at work, and several times seriously thought of giving myself up to the authorities and suffer the penalty of my crime. The story of the elopment worked well. No one doubted the truth of it, be cause Bellington’s absence confirmed it. Never having any children, I disposed of what furniture I had and went boarding. Wellington promised when he left that he M ould keep me posted as to his movements and whereabouts, but I have never heard anything from him since. His silence, if he is not dead, would seem to indicate that he was glad to get away on account of what happened, and did not intend to write or keep me posted. ” Crossby trembled and sank back in the bed greatly exhausted. He lingered until noon yesterday, when he died. When the news of the murder became public'many of the neighbors who remembered well the cir cumstances of the elopement crowded around the dead man’s house out of curi osity, and discussed the terrible tale. The case has been placed in the linnds of Detec tive Johnson for investigation, who says an effort may be made to find the body of the murdered woman. His first object, however, will be to get a clew to the whereabouts of Wellington, who, if captured, will be able to tell where the woman’s body was placed. < 'rossby and Bellington are both spoken well of by the quarrymen, who expressed their great surprise at the confession of Crossby. It is rumored that a clew,which may event ually lead to the arrest of Bellington, has already been obtained. hidden in anew carriage. The Victim of a Mysterious Murder Pound on a Gondola Car in Chicago. From the New York Tribune. Chicago, Oct. 28.—A fashionable rock away carriage was shipped some days ago to Studebakor Brothers, of this city, trom Aew Haven, Conn., secured in a well-made orate, covered with a tarpaulin and placed on a gondola car. It reached Chicago over tee Pennsylvania road at an early hour this 'norning, but was not taken up to the depot for unloading until nearly 10 o’clock. When foreman Crane and several truckers went lo work to remove the carriage from the car the attention of Crane was attracted by a faint, but disagreeable odor, and he looked through the crate into the rockaway. He *aw, lying face downward in the carriage, the body of a man. He immediately seut for the police officer on duty at the station, and after a glance at the body this officer summoned a patrol wagon unci detectives. V ken the latter arrived the orate and car riage were opened and the holy removed. I he man appeared to be about 22 years of “Re. His face was cleanly shaven. His height was just 6 feet 8 inches. He and and not present the appearance of a vagrant, being 'airly well clad. He wore cotton trousers of a dark color, with n dark waistcoat and coat. Near the body lay a soft, brown felt hat and on his feet were a good pair of laced shoes. An india rubber overcoat lav near 'he laxly. A stubby beard of several days’ growth covered his cheeks and chin. Im mediately over one eye was a bullet wound, an, l the lower portion of the skull had been crushed, as if by a blow from some blunt, heavy instrument. The body was cold when found, and the police are of the opin -1011 that the man had at least been dead two ua.vs, as the body had swollen slightly and the fingernails had turned black. It was apparent that the man had not l>een long dead when he was put into the carriage, as the cushions and hangings bore blood stains. Nothing could be found that w ould reveal the name of the man. In one Pocket was a ticket admitting the beurer to * 'crept l on of class packers to be given at Rochester, Pa. The ticket bore the date Oct. 28, and was issued by Glass Factory 10,6<J0. In another pocket was a meal ticket that bore the inscription: ‘‘Abel’s: ripen day and /light.” There was also a card marked, “Fffie Johnson, No. 135) Water street,” on one side, and on the other, in red ink, “123 Terry.” The body was sent to the morgue and the police began formulating theories of the murder. The most popular is that the man was murdered for some money he may have had, and that the murder haviug been com mitted near the railroad, the carriage nat urally suggested itself as a safe depository for the corpse. What puzzles the detec tives, however, is the fact that the freight handlers about the Pennsylvania depot claim that ail the bars of the crate were se curely in position when the body was first discovered, aiul that there wasnot sufficient room between them to thmst the body through. The police say that they have learned that the car, on which the Carriage was loaded, was sidetracked for something at Rochester, Pa., and that it is extreme ly probable that the murder was committed there. An investigation has bean Instituted at Rochester. In reply to inquiries, the po lice at Pittsburg say they are unable to throw- any light on the mystery. No one has been reported missing there nor at Rochester, they say. The proprietor of Abel’s restaurant in Pittsburg knows noth ing of the man, tho ticket, or any circum stance that would give a clew. The police will to-morrow photograph the body and have copies of the picture widely circulated in the region through which the carriage came. A MURDEROUS PACKAGE. An Infernal Machine Sent to Mr. Wech sler Explodes in His House. From the New York Times. At 10 o’clock last night a District messen ger boy called at the house of P. Wechsler, of the firm of Wechsler & Abrahams, at 321) Washington avenue, Brooklyn, and asked for Mr. Wechsler. The old servant who opened the door said that his employer was not at home, and then the boy handed him the package addressed to Mr. Wechsler and went away. The servant took the package up stairs to Mrs. AVechsler’s room and handed it to her. It was an innocent-looking package, and, supposing that it might be something in which she had an interest, or was, perhaps meant for her, she resolved to open it. Her little 10-year-old boy came close to her, eager to see what the package might con tain, and stood by her side as she began to undo the wrappings. She found w-ithin two small boxes, one of which was made of paper and the other of wood. The latter had a sliding top and, her curiosity being now thoroughly aroused, she attempted to open it. She had only pulled the top a little when there was a" sudden explosion, and she sprang to her feet screaming with pain, while the boy joined her with his cries. The members of the family and servants rushed into the room and found Mrs. Weeh sler in a terrible condition. Her face and hands were badly lacerated, particularly her face, and she was almost blinded. The boy, too, was rolling about the floor in agony from the pain caused by lacerations of his face and hands. Dr. Ro-hester was called in at once and an examination showed that the faces of Mrs. Wechsler and her son were filled with small pieces of metal which had been driven iuto them by the force of the explosion. The boy, while painfully hurt, is not con sidered to be in any danger, but in the case of Mrs. Wechsler it is feared that lockjaw mav set in and that her death is certain. The police authorities were promptly given notice and at once went to work on the case, but so far they have not been able to get the slightest clew to the perpotrator of the outrage. It seems certain that it was intended that Mr. Wechsler should himself cq>en the package. When the boxes were examined by the police they found in the paper box a silver knife, fork and spoon, and in the wooden box four small pocketbooks. The most careful and minute examination failed, however, to disclose any trace of the explo sion, and the police are unable to say or even to guess what it M-as. There was no sign of any machinery to have worked an explosion and none of the little bits of metal about, similar to those which were (driven into the face of Mrs. Wechsler and her son. Where the explosive and the pieces of metal were kept is a thorough puzzle. The only rea sonable explanation offered was that some new kind of chemical compound had been used, while, occupying small space, has tre mendous force, and is exploded by a slight friction. The boxes will be thoroughly and carefully examined to-day by experts, and it is possible that something may yet be found which will lead to the discovery- of just what the explosive is. Mr. Wecshler is at a loss to know why he has been singled out in this manner for de struction. He said last night that he had no enemies that he knew of who could thus wish to compass his death. A VERY BAD INDIAN. The Ambitious Medicine Man Who Has Caused the Crow Outbreak. From the Philadelphia P) ess. St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 28. —A number of days ago Gus Beaulieu, of St. Paul, the Deputy United States Marshal, addressed a letter to a half-breed, H. Keiser, living at Bull Mountain Station, Mont., asking the inside history of the trouble among the Crow Indians. Beaulieu has received the follow ing tptter, dated Oct. 24: “The trouble has all come from the neglect of the government and from one Indian. One young buck, aged 17 or 18, has during the past summer been fasting, and, as they call it, making medicine. He was adopted, as the Indians say, by the thunder and lightning as their son, and this rave him power to slay anything that came iw his way. Some little time ago he came from his secluded spot in the mountains out among his people and told them of some of his discoveries. He prophesied to them a number of things which came tme, and this gave some of them great con fidence in him, though others doubted. He gradually kept gaining ground, and at last took a small party and went to war. He made a successful trip, and brought back a band of horses. A- he was coming through the agency with his horses he shot the agent’s hor>e full of holes and also the trade s’ store, saying that his father, ‘Mr. Thunder,’ had advised him to fight the whites and he must obey. He heard that the troops were going to arrest him and defied them. They let him go until the present, and this has given some of the Indians confidence, thinking the whites wore actually afraid. The majority of the Crows ‘■aid to arrest him or he would give them trouble, but the government has been too slow, waiting until the ex citement died away, and hence every day this young medicine man has been gain ing ground and getting more follower, until it has become a serious matter. Now they are reinforcing at Fort Custer, getting troops to make the arrest which if they had done at the time would have avoided the trouble, and everything would have been peaceable, but nt >w it is doubtful when they make the arrest if they don’t have a fight. “The Crows’ agent, Gen. A. E. William son, Is not to blame for this. It has all oc curred from not arresting that one Indian. The Crows have undoubtedly the best, agent that has ever been sent to thorn, and they have made more improvement under him than they ever did before. These are the facts.” What It Is. P. P. P. is the great remedy for all blood and skin diseases. It is a fine prepar ation, containing all the best known vege\ table Tonics and Blood Purifying Remedies, Prickly Ash.

The American Art Journal of New York thus speaks of Mrs. Cecilia S. P. Cary, of Rochester, N. Y. who is now recognized as one of the finest Pianists and most success ful Teachers that America has produced: “Mrs. Cary made flying visits to New York, receiving valuable instruction from S. B. Mills, and drawing inspiration from those two great tone masters, Thai berg and Gottschalk. The production of a pure singing tone had always been a study with her, and, observing that these two great pianists used only the Chickering Fianos, she made a thorough investigation, which resulted in her purchasing the first Cbiek ering Grand that went into Western New York. Since that time Mi's. Cary has been a firm and steadfast friend of that Piano Forte, and it is a matter of conscience with her to advise the use of these instruments with her class, over 70 of whom possess Chickering Grands.” A Word to the Wise. —A Piano which is used and indorsed by such magnificent artists as Thalberg, Gottschalk, Rivi King, Teresa Careno, Wm. H. Sherwood and Mrs. Cary is certainly a safe and desirable Piano to buy. Over 74,000 Chiekerings have been sold, and to-day, as always, the Chickering Pianos lead the world.
