J The Terrible Crime of Tuesday Under Investigation. The Coroner's Jury Adjourned Last Night Until To-Day. The Two Mason Children Were Beaten, Cut and Tortured for a Long Time Before Their Fiendish Assailant Gave Them the Finish ing Strokes With the Garden Hoe -The Entire Community In tensely Excited—The Authorities Active, and Doing All Possible to Find the Guilty Party—The Coroner’s Jury Put in a Full Day. Mrs. Mason on the SLand Three Times-Her Main Points Corrob orated by Other Evidence—It May Take the Jury Several Days to Reach a Verdict. The horrible crime at Moundsville, Tuesday afternoon, resulting in the murder of little Stanley Mason, aged 10 years, and the probably fatally wounding of his three-and-a-half-yeai old brother, Willie, surpasses in fiend ishness anything ever occurring in this portion of the country. The entire ab sence of any conceivable motive for the murderous deed, and the horrible man ner in which the little victims were beaten, cut, bruised and slashed, before death and unconsciousness mercifully came to their relief, stamps the perpe trator as a veritable devil whom Satan himself would disown and deny a place in the bottomless pit, or else a maniac utterly irresponsible for his awful work and whose being at large is a danger and menace to any community. The mystery has not yet been solved—it may be many days before it is—but the authorities are putting forth THEIR UTMOST EXERTIONS, ind nothing will be left undone to cap ture the guilty party. Up to last even ing two arrests had been made, but in neither ease was there the slightest evidence upon which to hold the pris oners, and both were discharged. Among the population of the town and sur rouuding country, which is wrought up to a high pitch of excitement, there are many theories^ none of which have as yet proved of any value; but the pre ponderance of sentiment is in the di rection of insanity as the mental condi tion of the murderer—this is mainly for the reason that no other reasonable mo tive would account for the murder of two children, and this hypotheses is strengthened by the nature of the wounds inflicted. They indicate that FOUR DISTINCT WEAPONS were used upon each boy—first, small switches, cut from neighboring bushes or trees; secondly, stout clubs made of the branches or roots of trees; third, a sharp knife or some small instrument capable of making small clean-cut in | cisions. and lastly, the garden hoe.with which the finishing strokes were made. Switches and sticks, smeared with I blood, were found and turned over yesterday by the author ities in the immediate vicinity of where the childrens’ bodies were discov ered Tuesday evening, and close to where the bloody hoe was also lying, but up to last evening nothing in the nature of a pen-knife had been seen. All these indications suggest that the little boys were literally tortured for a long time by the murderer, who beat, hacked and chopped his vic tims until his vengeance, mania or whatever else was the inducing mo tive. had been fully gratified, when he administered the coup de main with the hoe. and then fled from the scene of his crime, leaving, as he supposed, both boys dead. Stanley, the oldest, linger ed until twenty minutes of three o’clock this morning, when death ensued. Willie, the youngest, was still alive last evening, but his recovery from his horrible wounds is not expected. A Register reporter visited the SCENE Ur THE JMUKUErt yesterday afternoon and made a care ful examination of the bodies of the two boys, of the hoe, dubs and switch es. noted the nature of the wounds and all the surroundings and circumstances, so far as they could be ascertained. There were hundreds of people at the Mason home and its vicinity during the day, and by night the grounds about the house had been tramped over so much as to make any effort to obtain a trace of the murderer by his footsteps futile. The house stands on the hiH side.about two hundred yards northeast of the corporation line of Moundsville, and is a small and dingy affair, consist ing of but two rooms. In one of these rooms, yesterday, the body of the dead hoy was lying, and close by was Wil lie] still living and uhder the care of the physicians. THE BODY OF STANLEY ’ was found Tuesday lying about fifty feet to the west of the house, on the hill-side, which is there covered with grass. ItvVas naked when found, ex cept the shirt, which had been torn off the bod\ and tied tightly around his thigh Jjf The lad's other clothing was *catt about the vicinity on the gror^T The younger boy, Willie, was fou Jrubout midway between the spot wh/re Stanley lay and the house. His cbfhing and shoes were on. and the tjhthing was badly stained with blood. JDn the ground in the vicinity of both rboys were scattered the switches an« chibs with which the boys had been beaten. The hoe was but a short dis tance away, where It had been thrown or dropped. These weapons were care fully gathered up by the authorities yesterday for use as evidence. The principal wound upon the per son of Willie, and the one which will probably EVENTUALLY CAUSE HIS DEATH, was made by a blow with the hoe on the left side of the head, from the eye across the temple, over the ear. and well around to the side of the head. This appears to have been made with the edge of the hoe. which is quite sharp. There is a slight fracture of the skull, according to the statement of the attending physicians. Upon his bodv are many cuts and bruises, plain ly showing the diabolical ingenuity of his assailant in the matter of tartnre. The principal wound upon the dead body of Stanley is on the right temple, where the skull is fractured. His body is also covered with wounds, among which the cuts of a small keen edged weapon are very numerous. At least TTalf an hour must have been de voted to this fiendish work before the merciful services of the heavy hoe were called upon. The crime was probably committed about three or four o’clock in the afternoon. The last time the boys w’ere seen was about half-past twelve, when a neighbor saw them in a corn field about two hundred yards from the house—the same field beside which, on the road, George Edwards was STRUCK AND ALMOST KILLED by a club in the hands of a stranger about nine o’clock Tuesday evening. After leaving the corn field the boys must have gone home, where Stanley put Willie’s shoes on, in accordance with the instructions of the mother when she left home in the morning, she having told Stanley to cut some briars down in the afternoon, but to put Willie's shoes on first before going among the “stickers.” The crime could scarcely have been committed after four o’clock, and probably not after three, because wnen Mrs. Mason found the dying boys on her return from work, about seven o'clock, the blood on their garments and on the ground had dried. If the man who struck Edwards with the club w’as the same party who attacked the boys, he must have loitered about the house or its vicinity until just before Mrs. Ma son returned home, and then fled to the cornfield. There he might have secreted himself, along the edge of the field next to the road, but hearing Ed wards coming, and thinking possibly his crime HAD BEEN DISCOVERED and he was being pursued, he sprang out, struck Edwards with the club, felling him to the ground, and then escaped. Edwards is badly hurt, and had he caught the blow' squarely on the head, it would have been all day with him. He said the man was tall, and had on a w'hite hat ann a light coat. He could not distinguish features, and does not think he could certainly iden tify him. He says wrhen he first saw’ this unknown party he appeared to be muttering or talking to himself, and the next thing he knew the blow came on his head and he fell to the ground unconscious. The blow took him rignt between the eyes, and his face wore a decidedly patched-up appearance to day. There is no trace of this un known and mysterious man. and a few are inclined to doubt the story told by Edwards, explaining his battered coun tenance in another way. THE INQUEST. Justice George Edwards, the acting coroner, empannelled the jury for the investigation early yesterday morning, as follows: T. W. Manning, H. C. Sheppard, Thompson Powell, It. B. Far rell, Irwin Stewart and J. T. Foster. The jury reached the Mason house about nine o’clock, and after viewing the remains of the dead boy and mak ing an examination of the locality, ad-» journed to the residence of William Burley, about a quarter of a mile away, where the taking of evidence was com menced. W. M. Meighen represented the State. An enormous crowd was present. The first witness examined was Mrs. Mason, the mother of the children. She said she left home between seven ard eight o’clock Tuesday morning to go to Mrs. Roberts, where she was to work during the day. Mr. and Mrs. Roberts w’cre to leave on the afternoon train, which left the Moundsville sta tion about twenty minutes after four, and after the couple had left the house for the depot witness said she remained about until seven o’clock, and then STARTED FOR HOME, carrying a heavy basket. After Mr. and Mrs. Roberts left she said she wa9 out on the road in front of the house, where she was seen and recognized by a man who passed. On her w’ay home, just after seven o’clock, and when she was but a short distance from Roberts’ she was passed by a man hauling a load of lumber. He noticed her heavy basket, and asked her to ride. She said no, but she placed her basket on the wagon and walked beside it. She reached home before eight o’clock, and the first thing she noticed was that, the chicken house was open, a very unusual thing. She went to the door, and found it shut but not locked. She opened the door and went In and called to the children, but they did not an swer. She then went out again and called, when she heard Willie answer. She followed in the direction of the noise, and found him lying on the ground. COVERED WITH BLOOD and badly hurt. She said Wllle said: “Stanley’s hurted. too. A big man tried to kill us.” She screamed for help, and Charles Golden came, followed by H. H. Cox. She said she told them what she had found, and Golden went in search of the other boy. she telling him where to go, explaining that she knew because she had heard him groan when she ran to Willie. Mrs. Mason was then told to stand aside for a time, and Dr. Steel and the other attending physicians testified. They stated in general terms that the wounds must have been inflicted about five hours before they saw the boys, which was about ten o’clock at night. This would fix the crime at about four or half-past four in the afternoon. George Edwards was next called, and testified to visiting the house among the fifet, and then going for the doc tors. He said he started down the road past the corn field, and when he came to a rail pile a tall man. wear:ng a light coat and a white hat. and who appared to be muttering to himself, sprang out and HIT HIM WITH A CLUB. • In the afternoon Mrs. Mason was recalled and was closely questioned by Mr. Meighen. She well maintained her story of the morning, explaining every point in a very satisfactoryjnan Io the world thero is no other treatmerit > pure, so sweet, so safe, so speedy, lor pre ying, purify mg, and beautifying the skin, ■alt) and hair, and eradicating every hu or.’as warm baths with CrTtcrup Soar, id gentle anointings with C tTlciBA*toint ,ent >. the great akin cure. EVEBY HCEOB rS£,r w’TSSff* ner with one exception. She was ask ed how she came to say Tuesday night: “I wonder if this was done by Charles Younger or Mason." (meaning her hus band by the latter name), but she couldn’t account for it very well. Younger had been arrested, but when he was brought before the jury and Mrs. Mason he stated that he was at his home on Little Grave creek all day Tuesday, not being further away from the house than the stable, and that he did not know Mrs. Mason. She also said she did not know Young er. The prisoner was then discharg ed. Charles Golden testified that he was the first man at the scene after Mrs. Mason reached home in the evening. Golden lives three hundred yards from the Mason home, and between seven and eight o’clock he was sitting on his porch with his wife and Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Cox. He said he saw MRS. MASON GOING HOME, passing up a little hollow about a hun dred yards away. It was not yet dark, and he saw and recognized her. About ten minutes, as nearly as he could judge, after she reached home, he heard her scream and cry: “My children are bleeding to death.” He said to Cox: “I’ll go and see what is the matter, and you go for a doctor.” Witness then ran to Mrs. Mason’s, whom he found with the youngest child in her arms, and crying and screaming. She hurriedly told him what was the matter and said Stanley was*lying out on the hill-side, and wit ness went in the direction she indi cated and found the second boy, whom he carried to the house. Henry M. Salter testified to being early at the scene and to making an examination of the ground near where the boys were lying, and to picking up sticks and switches covered with blood. Later in the afternoon Mrs. Mason was again called and was asked as to THE VISIT OF A MAN at her house about a week ago. She said that about that, time a man had called upon her at her home and rep resented himself as Mr.Barrack.of New Martinsville. She would not say that was his name, but represented him self to be Mr. Barrack. She did not know him personally. She said this man asked her if the youngest boy— Willie—was Will Jarrett's boy, and said he had been sent by some of Mr. Jarrett's relatives to find out the truth and clear the matter up. She said the boy was there, and the man Iookert at him, noted his blue eyes, etc., am* said: “The boy’s face talks for itself.” She told the man the matter was none of his business. H. H. Cox, who was with .Mr. uoi den when they heard Mrs. Mason's screams, was then called, and cor roborated Mr. Golden's story, and also Mrs. Mason's in such particulars as came under his observation. After some further work of no par ticular importance, the jury adjourned until seven o’clock in the evening, but without taking any more evidence, ad journed UNTIL 8 O’CLOCK THIS EVENING, at the Court House. Stanley Mason’s body will be taken to Rosby’s Rock at eight o'clock this morning for burial. Public opinion at Moundsvlllc is very much divided, and all sorts of conjec tures are to be heard. Some think the murder the act of an irresponsible maniac, others suspect Mr. Mason, the husband, and still others are trying to weave a web which will catch the mother in its meshes, but so far there is nothing to warrant suspicion as to her. SheVould not have attacked the boys in the morning before she left, because they were seen in the middle of the day, and she was at Roberts's certainly until after four o'clock, and did not leave there to go home until seven or a little after, when she was seen both by the man on the wagon and by Messrs. Golden and Cox. That she left the Roberts house and went home, between four and five o’clock, by another route, and then returned and went home at seven, has been ad vanced. but this is more ingenious than plausible, and has few' adherents. It was the general belief in Mounds ville last evening that the jury would not adjourn for several days, and there are hints that a surprise In the shape of evidence may he sprung to-day. It Is one of the most mysterious crimes ever known in this vicinity, as well as the most fiendish, and the solu tion of the problem and the bringing' of the guilty party to justice, will be awaited by the public with illy-con cealed impatience. THE LOCAL END. Yesterday morning tne marsuau rounty authorities communicated with Chief Bennett about the murder, and asked him, to keep a sharp lookout, for the indefinite tall man with a white coat and light hat. who figures as the man who assaulted Edwards with the club, Tuesday night at nine o’clock, and about whom the little fellow Wil lie babbled yesterday in his conscious moments. Early in the day the police were informed that a stranger an swering this indefinite general descrip tion was begging for a meal in North Wheeling and had also been seen above town, and Lieut. Clemans was detailed on the job. He put in most of the day on the bunt, but returned with no tangible inlormation. The Register had positive information, last, night, that a man tall, with a light coat and a light or light brown hat. had visited several places in North Wheeling, asking for something to eat but there is one chance in a thous and that the individual had anything whatever to do with the murder. The local police will co-operate act ively with the Marshall county authori ties'and will do whatever they can to aid in bringing the guilty party to justice. The murder was a general theme of conversation in this city, yesterday, and there was an universal expression of the hope that the murderer would be speedily caught. JAPS NEXT WEEK. The Okabe Royal Japanese troupe of jugglers and acrobats will play a re turn engagement at the W heeJng Park Casino next week, opening on Monday night. The company is composed en^ tirely of “the Yankees of the East.” and their performance is certainly a marvelous one. On their last appear ance here in May they drew large crowds and gave most excellent satis faction. At this engagement the per formance will be made doubly attrac tive by the projectoscope. which will give exhibitions on the lawn of the Casino. Views of famous scenery, famous streets and famous men will be presented after the entertainment of the Japs. The affair on the whole promises to be most attractive. -o EXCLUSION to Chicago Oo Aeconntkneillic Lam Moa«n*at. July 21st cursion tic^j and return, turning unt je B.
