The case of the Commonwealth
versus George Cummins, for horse
stealing, tried in our county Court last
week, had some very curious features.
The facts of the case are about as
follows : Mr. Kellerman, of Venango
township, this county, had a horse
stolen from his premises on the night
of the 18th of August last. lie gave
a description of it to detectives who
found it in the possession of a man
named Burkey in Clearfield county,
who said he got it from Cummins.
The horse was returned to Mr. Keller
man and Cummins was arrested. Soon
after a man named McElwain, said to
be a respected citizen of Clarion coun
tv put in an appearance and claimed
that he had lost, on the night of the
30th of August, a hoise whose des
cription answered exactly to that of
the one stolen from Mr. Kellerman.
McElwain found the horse in the pos
session of Kellerman aud sued out a
writ of replevin. Kallcrman gave a
property bond and kept the horse.
At the trial Cummins' folks swore that
he was at home on the night of the
18th of August, bjt was away on the
night of the 30th of August, and he
himself acknowledged that he had
stolen McElwain's horse. McElwain
and a crowd of Clarion county men
were here at the trial aiding in the
defense of Cummins. The jury must
have regarded this action of theirs as
being suspicious, for thev found Cum
mins to be guilty as indicted, and he
was sent to the penitentiary. Mc-
Quistion and Vanderlin Esq's aided
the District Attorney in the prosecu
tion. A board of arbitrators next day,
awarded the horse to Kellerman.
