Steueexville, O., June 17.—The Sheck
ler murder trial, which took place here
this week, commencing Monday morning
and continuing Thursday, by Sheckler b^
ing convicted or manslaughter, erected
considerable interest, although the indict
| meat was only for murder in the first de
gree, for the reason that the principals in
the affair we’-*1 well known, and about two
hundred witneses were present from the
village of Bergholz, where tho crime was
committed, to give testimony in the case.
The facts of the case, ih brief, are as fol
lows: Simeon Sheckler was a boss of the
Bergholz Coal Co., end James r -cus was
a miner. Last February the coa, compaoy
decided that It would have to reduce its
force of minejs, and Sheckler communica
ted the fact to the men. The miners held
a meeting and decided that the unmarried
men should quit work, and this class was
accordingly laid off, among them being
some friends of Barcus. He blamed Sheck
ler with being the cause of the discharge
of his favorites, and on the fifteenth of
February a fight took place in the mine,
during which Sleeker shot and killed Bar*
cus. It see-ms that prior to this irouhio a
feud had existed with Sleeker and his
friends on one side and Barcus and his
friends on the other, and in a measure
Shecker and hl9 friends were under cow.
Barcus took advantage of this, and on
every favorable occasion insulted Sleeker
and otherwise persecuted him, and from
reports it seems that Barcus’ friends have
carried on the persecution against Slack
er's wifo since his incarceration in Jail.
She started a millinery store In order to
gain a livelihood, but was boycotted and
harrassed by Barcus’ friends to such au
extent that she was compelled to quit busi
ness. While she was in this city attend
ing the trial of her husband a valuable
mule belonging to her was cut and slashed
so that it is utterly worthless. Barcus’
friends have overreached themselves by
such actions, for they have created sympa
thy for Sleeker to such an extent that a pe
tition is already being gotten up asking for
The arrangements for tho celebration of
tho Fourth of July m this city are progress
ing finely and the committee will have
everything in shape in good time. The tire
