Charge Against Starns
Changed to Receiving
Cases growing out of alleged robberies
of freight cars of the Baltimore and
Ohio Kailroad company in the yards
in Fairmont recently took place yesterday
afternoon before Justice Conaway.
James Anderson, who has been
a driver of the city garbage wagon,
was heard and in default of $1,000 bail
lie was remanded to Jail to appear be
fore the grand jury. II. G. Starns
and Worthie Slater were not heard.
The petty larceny charge against
Worthie Slater was dismissed and the
charge against Starns was altered,
having been reduced to receiving stolen
goods from larceny; Starns' bond
was fixed at $300. He will have to appear
before Justice Conaway to answer
that charge on Tuesday afternoon at 3
Only two witnesses were called,
they being B. & O. officers. They testified
that they were waiting on a train
lor Grafton on the night of September
25. and while here decided to walk up
through the yards. All of the cars had
| been sealed and after a time they heard
a noise which apparently came from a
box car in front of them. Just before
they readied the car a man leaped out
| anu tried to escape. They claim it was
i Anderson and say that he gave them
several phoney addresses in tile city
tit Fairmont. They testified that Anderson
had a school bag over his back
and swore that Anderson admitted that
ite was looking for shoes.
The dotectives testified that in the
car in which the man sprang out that
there was a shipment of candy from
-VleKeesport, Pa., to the Parker store,
this city. The candy was strewn about
but nothing as far as they could learn
was missing. When Anderson was
searched after his arrest the officers
testified that they found in his nocket
a broken seal, which belonged to the
Baltimore and Ohio ltailroad company.
On cross-examination conducted by
Attorney L. C. Musgrave one of the
detectives admitted that the seal was
the only property of the B. 4i O., which
was found on Anderson. They claimed
that Anderson admitted his guilt and
ret the time of the robbery between
S:30 and 9 o'clock on the night of September
23. While Anderson was not
called, he denies any admission of
After Anderson was arrested a
searcli warrant was issued and his
premises were visited by the officers.
There a lot of goods were found and
these were brought to the justice's office
at the hearing on Friday afternoon.
The officers think that these goods
were taken in August, but it is understood
that thus far they have not made
out a case.
Mrs. Anderson claimed about a week
ago in a printed statcmont that some
of the goods had belonged to her and
rome belonged to Anderson before he
