Yesterday morning at 9 o'clock, after L
the crowd had goce through the formality £
of again twisting the door from its hinge«,
the trial of Thomaa McGowan was re- a
somed by continuing the croM-elamination \
of John Culver, which resulted in disclosing j"
nothing new. ^
Simon Bowman waa placed on the stand I
and said he saw three men pass through a
Greggsville on the evening of the 2 2d of f
December of last year. His description ot ^
the trio was that ou« was tall and the other I
two were smalL All of them were stranger«
and carried package* of some sort. No
one ot the accused was a member of the
party. He had not saen these men before

stated that on the morning of the 23d of
December, 1S84, Ed Angus called at his
hoQM about 4 o'clock in the morning and
informed him that Charles Barth, a neigh
bor, was sick and wished him to call to see
him, which he did, accompanying Angus ,
to the home ot the sick mau. Angus stay« d
there a short time, bat did not see him
after leaving any more that day.
Charles Barth next occupied the stand
He said that his wife and himself viaittd
Mr. and Mi*. Edward Angus on the even
ing of the 2?d of last December. They
went to their house rather early in the
evenin? and remaned there ontil near 10
o'clock, at which time they retaned home.
Mr. Ansfus went after Dr. Blackford for
witness between 3 and 4 o'clock the next j
morning. He said he
about the time, as he had made a mem > j
randum of it in his day-book.
Mrs. Barth was then called to thu stand
and made a statement that coincided *ith
that ot her husband. On cross examina
tion she stated that sh° did not recollect :
telling her sister at New Martinsville that
Kat kaah&nd and Ei Anirus had been at
rhomas McGowan'a on the Sunday before
:he robbery tuok place.
Jasper Kincaid wm again called and
«aid he sever talked with Beuj. Frazier i
; about the robbery while in jail. i
Berj Fraiz»r was then produced by the
defence, and stated that Kiccaid told him
(hat he would not have disclosed the
if they had taken him out of jail.
Jatnt» Whorton, who is tne father io j
law of John Culver, oce of the accused, I
and who. at the time of the robbery, was
living with Charles Peyton, was next call- j
ed. Lie stated that on the Light of the
robber v Mr. and Mrs. Job a C'ul.er and
their son George, viiited Mr. Peyton's, the
cause of the v;ut being the sickness ot
Mrs Peyton. They returned heme be- j
tween 8 and 9 o'clock. Mr. Peyton, him- :
self, was in Wheeling and did not return
until a short time after the visitor let.. j
Mrs. E. Angus made her state ment, j
which was merely a re statement of Mr.
Birth's testimony given above and of her !
husband « as given yesterday.
Mrs. Charles Peytou's evidence **■» j
next heard and it did not differ materially
from ihat ot Mr. James Whorton as given
above and John Culver's as given in yea- j
terday'a usue.
testimony coincided with that of her hus
band, while that of her son George, which
j fallowed, did not differ materially from I
fh&l'ot his parents.
M Altmayer said he had a talk with ■
Marling on the following Wednesday after '
the robbery. He said it wa9 impossible for
him to recognise any cf the parties. Poa ;
sibly he could tell one of them by hir j
j liar voice.

river history," said he, "and I attribute it
to two caasea, either of which is a simple
explanation. One was, there was no water
for a long time, and the other is, there was
no bnsinees. I think the river bnsinesa,
however, is relatively as great a thing as
ever it was. It is true that the tncroacb
ments of railroads have done mach to di
vert certain classe« of basinets from the
water, bat there are many other classes
that shippers
when practicable, both on account of con
venience and eafety of carriage and cheap
ness. This year the Katie Stockdale,
Euima Graham, Scotia, Louis A. Sherley,
W. N. Chancellor and Andes have been
carrying passengers and freight between
tbis city, Cincinnati and lyonisville. Tb«
Chancellor only went as far as the month
ol the Great Kanawha, bat it is a competi
tor for several hundred miles. None of
them have had enough te do all summer,
but each has kept in the trade and held its
day. But while tbey have been doing
nothing the railroads have done as little,
which goes to show that the same condi
tions govern both.
"There are now
between tbis city and Wheeling—the
Cleveland and Pittsburg, the Pittsburg,
Cincinnati and St. Louis and the Balti
more and Ohio—the first two occupying the
two sides of the river, and all bidding for
the business intermediate The C. W.
n .v- » 11—» —u
business, if'not more, now than she did
when only one line of road was against
her, thus showing that the increase of en
terprises and population has been relative
ly as advantageous to water as to rail.
The regular boats have not lost
relatively anything. They all reach
large towns, small towns and isolated
landings between Pittsburgh and Ciocin
nali that no railroad touches and make
money in local as well as through business.
Fully one-third of the freight business
goes to LoaiBville. Much freight goes to
Cincinnati for reshipment to Chicago,
Kansas City, New Orleans, St. Louis,
poiuts on the Missouri river and towns in
the iuterior of nearly every Western er
Southwestern State. The transshipment
is of course by rail We take plenty of
freight for Richmond, Va , reshipping at
Huntington, W. Va , by way of the Chesa
peake and Ohio road. This is a sample
of our chipping possibilities.
"Nearly all shippers along the river and
at terminal points prefer boats to rail
reads, because when there * is water they
get their freight regularly. A boat that
leaves this city Wednesday is sure to hand
over its freight Saturday at Cincinnati,
while a freight car may not be on hand for
a week afterwards. All varieties of iron,
»lhfis and window glass are shipped by
preference on boats, both as a means of
Bafety and cheapness.
XE«'.CLASSES or k'REIiillT
come to us each year, a9 the branohes of
business increase and diversity. We keep
abreast of the times, and if water were al
ways assured, would get always a large
share of trade. Business is opening op
well this winter; plenty of freight and pas
sengers are offering, and we look fer a
compensation for the dullness of the sum
mer and early tall loss."
"What has become oJ the St. Louis
trade?'' asked the writer.
"That is pone, or apparently so. Three
years ago eight large boats, known as the
'Big Eight,' were running regularly be
tween this city and St. Louis. They were
the Alice, Carrier, Buckeye State, Daco
tah, Montana, Hudson and two others.
Two of them sunk on the falls at Louis
happened to one or two others, and the rest
went into the Missouri and Mississippi river
trades. They usually brought up iron ore and
miscellaneous freight«, and took down
Pittsburg and Wheeling products. The
ore was diverted into other channels of
transportation and it did not pay to run
thera empty in one direction. This >i the
first year in Pittsburg's history that not a
boat ha» been loaded here for St. Louia
Caytain Gray's Iron Line is doing all -that
is being doue, but low water has kept his
boats lrom the Mississippi this year. There
will always be a lice of boatson the Upper
Ohio. 1 he business is relatively as good
now as it was five years ago. It pays, and
that is all ihat is necessary."
