A Startling Crime Enacted on the
Island, Last Night.
William 0. Cashing, a Weil-Known Young
Man, iCommits Suicide at
His Residence.
The Decease] a Defaulter to the Belmjnt
Iron Company to an Amount Vari
ously Estimated at From Two
to Three Thousand
For the past two or three days it has been
hinted about towa that m serious defalca
tion existed in the office of the Belmont
Iren Work?, and rumor connected the
n»mi> of William I>. Cushing, the chief
bookkeeper of the concern, with the matter
in a manner reflecting seriously upon his
honor and integrity. That these suspicions
were well grounded is evidenced by the
startling developments of last night—em
bracing as thoy do the mo3t convincing
proof of guilt, the arrest of the smpicioaed
person, his admission to bail, and his sub
sequent death by his own hands—all oc
curring within a few hours.
The details of this most unfortunate affair
are as follows: For several weeks past the
tu» mbers of the Board of Directors of the
Be mont Iron Company have suspicioned
thfct all was not going right in that portion
of the financial affairs of the mill under
the churgeof Mr. Cushiog. and with a view
to atcenaining whether or not their
suspicions »ere founded on fact, Mr. Andrew
Wilson was put to work by Manager J. D.
Du Bois overhauling the books, doing his
work at night at his residence, and return
ing the books to the oflice every morning.
ÀI er working for a few days, Mr. Wilson
repoited to the Board that be had made dis
connect of serious defalcations The irre*
uiaxities seem to have extended as far bacs
as May. lbJ>3, the first amount ascertained
to have been taken beicgSlO Mr. Gushing
h ltd charge of the pay roll, and seetn^
to have made it a custom, when he was
short of fui;ds, of adding ten, or fifty or
a hundred dollars to the arnourt drawn t
pay off the men, and then appropriate the
surplus to his own use, sums being taker
from time to time down to the opening of
the present vear, the largest of theeo being
In February, 1885, the sums of $100 and
f:;00 respectively were taken, the latter sum
about the last of the montb, the total o! all
tie thefts amounting to about $.',100
I On Monday of last week, the facts being
I fully in the possession of the
Boaql of Directors, it wa3 deter
mined to brin? the matter to a crisis by
causing Mr Cushion's arrest. Nothing was
done, however, until yesterday afternoon,
when the Board met at the oÛiceÇof State
Treasurer Thompson, at the Capitol, there
being present, iu addition to the Board |
Manager J. D. Du Hois, 'Squire William H |
Caldwell and Constable J. P. St. Meyers
A warrant was sworn out charging Mr
Cushing with embezzling the sum of $700,
being the total ot' the two sums taken dur
[ ing February, and about o'clock Coustable
St. Meyers boarded a south bound car en
rout«« tc the mill to arrest his man
Mr. Cusbing was fouud in the mill otiice,
just preparing to leave, and was at oice
t%ken into i-ustody and escorted to Squ're
! Culdwclis office. There Messrs. Andrew
Wilsou and J I>. DuBo • ipp^arei, at 7:20
o'clock, and after listening to tbe charge,
the ac used «us held to bti'.in the sum ot
$.1,000 for h s a; p urunce next Tuesday,
hi.« father-in-law, Mr Charies 1 terry, becom
irg hi« security. Mr. Cushing was released
frcm custody, and his movements for th<
I ensuing two hour* are not kuown
Akcut 10 o clock, lau evening Mr. Cush
irg entered his rtsidenc" at Ko. S Zane
I »met. Island, and at oncc ascended to th*
isccrnd floer. Mrs. Cushing was not a'
lome; she. in companv with a lady friend
I having visited the I'baniine street rink |
j w en« e Mr. C. hsd promised to
escort them. Early in the evening a friend
j telephor»td Mrs. C. that lier husband wa*
engaged and woulil be unab!»* to call at th
j rink for hrr, and the therefore reaiaiaed
! theie until a laie hour.
When Mr. Cushing came home, the house
I was deserted by all save a servant, Mis-.
I>ora Bucke, who was in the nursery with
tbe only child. The girl heard Mr. Cash
ing come in. and go up stairs, but hear 1
no noise for a tew moments, when she whi
suddenly startled by hearing the dull repon
ot a revolver. Not certain as to whether
the shct came from the interior of the hou3e
or outside, the girl, badly frightened and
with a vague dread that something terrible
had happened, sat alone for half an hoar, j
until the opening of the front door heralded
the return of Mrs. Cushing and her friend. >
The ladies had been escorted home by Mr. |
Wi bur Wright and on the jervant hurry
ing down stairs and telling oflhe shot, Mr.
Wright ran up alone to see what had hap- !
pened. Exploring the rooms in turn, he
at last entered the bath room, situated in
the rear of the house, where the gas jet I
was burning dimly. Here he was hor
rified to 5nd ' Mr. Cushing, lying I
on bis 1 ack, a revolver clasped in his right
hand,and the Hoor covered with blood which
was tlowiug profusely from a bullet wound
in the right side of his head. Mr. Cushing ,
was still breathiug and Mv. Wright at once
ran down stairs, and proceeded to the resi
dence of Mr. W. F. Irwin, next door, who
called in Dr. M vers and the three gentlemen,
after sending Mrs. Cusbing and her friend
into Mr. Irwin s residence, proceeded to
be relief of the wounded man.
Mr Cusbing was by this time dying, and
after a few gasps expired, soon after the
arrival of the doctor. An examination of
the wound showed that the ball had entered
the right side of the head, immediately j
nbove the top of the ear and passed entirely
•brough tie skull, coming out on the left I
side. The wound was a ghastly one, aud it |
is a matter of turprise that death was not
iuatantaneoas. Ifth« shot was fired about
• J0 o'clock, as the servant states, the wounded
mau must have lived for about forty minutes^
it beieg not far from twenty minutai of eleven
«fctn be died. The room presented a ghast
ly tight, tho floor for several square feet be
ing a dm of clotted blood, while the ex
pression of the dead man was grim and
ghastly in the extreme. He had goue at
cncetothe bath room on entering the
bou*e, without removing his hat or over
coat, evidently fully determined on taking
bis life as the easiest way out of the diffi'il
ties in which h« had become entangled. His
teeth were tightly clinched, and his whole
s pp* s ranee gave one the impression of his
bating fired the shot only by a desperate
«Sort of his will and after a terrible mental
»truggle. The revolver was a 32 calibre
Smith ii Wesson.
About half past one o'clock this morning
'Squire Schultz« arrived at the residence,
and an inquest was held. A jury was not
empannelled, the 'Squire not thinking it
necessary. The only witness examined was
Miss I>ora Bucke, the servant, who, as
above stated, was the only person in the
house at the time the shot was fired. She
stated that when Mr. Cushing came
home he made a great deal
of noise in coming up stairs
and proceeded at once to the bath room.
When he entered the latter room he left the
door ajar, and in a moment or two she
heard the report of a pistol. She was afraid
to move, and sat quaking with terror until
Mrs. Cusbing returned. Once or twice she
heard taint groans, and guessed that some
thing terrible had happened.
Tnrre was no further testimony taken,and
a verdict of suicide was accordingly ren
dered by the'Squire.
The examination of the corpse and room
incidental to the inquest showed that when
Mr. Cushing entered the room ne laid down
upon the floor, on his back, with his feet
toward the door and his head near the bath
tu\ which stands on the right side of the
room. After pasting through the skull the
ball struck the tub a few inches from the
bottom, aad then fell to the lloor, where it
was found by Dr. Myers.
Mrs. Cusbing was not allowed to see her
husband last night, remaining at Mr
Irvine's residence, where kind friends did
all that was possible to alleviate her great
Taken altogether, the affair is one of the
saddest coming within our knowledge;and

A Card from Mr. A. C. Harrell—lb* I* 1
tellifaucer's Id »»It.
Wheeling, March 2ö.i—tfi^ar»tivelj
f peaking, tha Intdligeacer man La* enough
biafg in his face to make a kettle, ani
enough sap in bis head to fill the kit le.
He reminds me of a jack-daw with peacock
feathers stuck in his tail, that he might pass
off as a peacock. Some of these fine days
somebody «ill pluck them from him, and
be will be in a pitiful condition when
: the pnblic finds out that he be
longs to the jack daw flock.
This is not the first time the gentleman
has misrepresented me. Sickness prevent
ed me from attending the committee meet
ing last night. 1 have been down time and
again to Council and committee meetings
and bad no meetings to materialize. Now.
because the committee failed to hold a
meeting last night, the would be peacock
charge« me and others with being poor citi
zen and low bred.
I have lived in Wheeling fourteen years,
and, I de y the wouk'-\>e peacock to show
one time where I played a game of chance
or was under the influence of drink or at
{ any time took sides with the violation of the
! law.
Coming down to a fine point, I think that
there is a little brain wanting both iu the
Mayor and Intelligcncer man. Why did the
Major want to act the monkey in trving to
use council as the eats paw to pulf chest
nuts out of the fire? Why did he not take
the casts of Porter Smith and F. Healy to
the courts and there prosecute them like a
man? Council is not a court to try criminal
and civil cafes in. The city ordinance em
phatically says that if the sergeant fails to
enforce the ordinance when he knows the
fact he shall pay a fine and cost of prosecu
tion. Now if a man strikes or robs me.on
the street I would not go to council about
i» but take it to the proper court. Council is
a body to make laws and the courts are the
place to try all law suits. I will hang by the
Slayor as long as he has a button on his
jacket if he will go about things right, and
will attend committee meetings when possi
ble to do so. A. C. Harrell.
Colored Piipiiii Htive Not Boen Admitted
to tlie Fourth Waid School.
Superintendent Biich was yesterday asked
us to the trtth of the report, which mate
r al zed in a communication in yesterday
morning's Register, that a number of col
ored pupils had been admitted to the gram
mar Department of the Fourth ward public
school. The superintendent laughed and
said, "That communication has caused
me more annoyance than you can
imagine. There is no truth in the re
port. The rumor probably gained cur
rency from the following fac>s: Wednesday
afternoon the annual examination of pupils
in the senior class took place at the I'nion
school, and as a matter of course pupils
were present from all the schools in the city,
and among them four colored scholars. The
examination of the latter in conjunction
with the others was commented on by some
of the scholars, and I suppose in relating it
to their parents they conveyed the impres
fion that the colored children had been
admitted as regular pupils. It is the first
time colored children have been admitted
to the graduating class, and the fact that
ihere were four candidates is much to
their credit."

vir. Mart!», of Fairmont, Almost Siift'ocalcil
hjr üa».
Yesterday morning about about 4:15
o'clock a guest at the Howell House, when
on his way to his room, detected the oJor
of gas and informed Walter Harrison, the
dork, who upon investigation discovered
•hat it proceeded from the apartment occu
i icd by G. W. S. Martin, ot Fairmont, W.
Vu. Mr. Harrison, being unable to arouse
the occupant, broke in the door, when a
volume of gas rushed out almost stifling him.
However he made his way to the window and
threw it open allowing the fresh air to pen
etrate the room, and the gas to pass out.
A light was then struck and it was found
that Mr. Martin was in an insensible condi
tion, every muscle and sinew being stiffened.
He was carried to another apartment and
the fresh air allowed to pass over him.
and he soon showed signs of life
by short gasps. I)r. Wilson was called
and rendered medical assistance, and
Mr. Martin was able to return home yes
terday, although he was in a terribly w>a'<,
nervous condition. It is supposed that Mr.
Martin turned off the gas, then unthinkingly
turned it on again, and it was a lucky thin?
for him that the gentleman canoe in when
he did, for in fifteen minutes more Mr. Mar

"The critics are at a loss how to descrii 1

is why the critics are scratching their heads
and biting their pens. She is, at times, the
Petite Faaette ot George Sand, und at others,
Nan in 'Good for Nothing;" Ehe is every
thing by turns and nothing long. She is
merely Miss Minnie Palmer, who can sing,
dance, chaff", play pranks, be prodigal in
suggestiveness, beloved by masherdora, and
above all, appears to enjoy what she is
doing. Herein lies the power of this clever
little lady. She has thp gift of communi

The Mendelsshon Quartette Club, of Boa
ton, which appears at the Opera House
April 8th, has a history which is almost a
record of the growth and development of
musical education of America. Organized
in 1849, its concert work has been one of
the largest elements in popularizing the
best class of instrumental music, and its
nfluence has extended throughout the
length and breadth of the country. Its touts
have made it alike familiar in the quiet vil
lages of New England, the leading cities
and towns of the Eastern, Middle, Southern
and Western States, and throughout the
great centres ofpopulat:on in the far West
and on the Paciuc coast. After having ex
tended its popularity beyond the bounds ot
the United States and the Canadas by a
tour through Australia, it has recently re
turned with new honors gained by the artis
tic work of its members. The club was en
gaged last year by Mr. Henry C. Abbe? to
travel as soloests in conjunction with Mme.

A Plea*nnt Dinner l'arty.
The luxuriantly elegant apartment oecu
pied by Messrs. James Hall, Camden Som
mers and Harry Odbert, commonly known
as "Jims Place," was the scene of a delight
ful little dinner party last evening. he
al'air was gotten up in an impromptu
manner, but it was quite a success
and the boys feel vet7 Proud
over the achievement. There were seven
ccnrses served, and at the end of the last
the guests, among whom were several
Indies, declared they could cat no more, or
there is r.o telling how many re
serve courses the boys had sequestered
in the "refrigerator." It is said that the
Friday club was outdone, and the boys in
tend to try their hands again in a short
time, when more of their friends will have
an opportunity ofjudging on their merits as
Cnril of Thank*.
We desire to express our thanks to those
who eo kindly sympathized with us in the
loss of our son and brother John. We feel
ourselves under many obligation to his fel
low-workmen, also to his friends as well as
those of family for their elaborate floral
contribution and assistance, and hope when
your faces have passed from this earth you
will receive his thanks who now peacefully
rests with his brother.
At a regular meeting of the South Side
Singing Society, held at their Ilall on March
23, 1885, the following resolutions were
unanimously adopted:
Whkrkas, In view of the loss we have
sustained by the decease ofour friend, mem
ber and associate, John Armbright, and of
the still heavier loss sustained by those who
were nearest and dearest to him; therefore,
be it
lie»olcc<l, That it is but a just tribute to
the memory of the departed to say that in
rfgretting his removal from our midst we
mourn for one who was in every way worthy
of our respect and regard.
llesolvcd, That we sincerely condole with
the family of the deceased in the dispensa
tions with which it has pleased Divine l'rovi
dente to afflict them, and commend them
for consolation to Ilim who orders all things
for the best, and whose chastisements are

Frmoey and Lr«ter'a Combination at the
Cliapliue Mret'l Kink Heartily Keceived.
Certainly ibe driest rink (terformance
ever given in this city was witnessed by an
audience ot at least seven or eight hundred
people last uight at the Chaplioe street
rink, and not cne but was delighted
wiih the performance, Pressey and
Lester, in their double and
siegle bicycle acts are great, and Fred L
Walsh, in trick and fancy skating, can not
be beaten. Charles Gilmore, who is only
thirty-six inches tall and twenty-five years
old, in his act of the "Little Dude," fair'j
brought down the house, and he
was compelled to reappear. The two
atter geatlemen, in their act of "Peck's
Bad Boy and his IV' was immensely funny,
and kept the audience laughing heartily the
whole time. The horizontal bar acl of
Frank C. Nichols, performing on a bar at
tached to two bicycles, was something en
tirely new and received great applause. The
whole performance in fact was first-class in
erary respect, and it will repay any one fo
see it to-night. It can be trutnfully said that
this m the best combination of the kind ever
Tiik finest bicycle artists in the profes
sion, Pressey & Lester, at the Chapline
street rink to-night.

Please do not confound any of the whisky
bitters, wliioh topers take and drunkards de
light in, with that altogether different arti
cle, "Brown's Iron Bitters." No toper
wants Brown's Iron Bitters, for there is noth
irg in it to satisfy the cravings of his de
bnsed appetite. This great iron medicine
gives strength nod new life, not a mere un
wiiolosome stimulus. Sheriff Pouder, of
Washington county, Tenn., writes that after
utinp two bottles of it he was cured of dys
pepsia. No "whisky bitters" could achieve
such a result.
