WHO IS
MORGAN?
V |
ONE J. E. MORGAN. WHO CLAIMS .
TO HAIL FROM FAIRMONT,
CREATES A SCENE AT
PITTSBURG.
! IT IS NOT OUR ESTEEMED CHIEF.
ALTHOUGH THE NAME IS
IDENTICAL WITH HIS.
?
PITTSBURG. June 9.?The monotj
ony o? the police court was relieved
i this morning by a pathetic reconcilia|
tion between a father and his wayi
ward daughter, whom he had not seen
for more than a year.
The man. a typical West Virginia
mountaineer, gave his name as J. K.
.Morgan He was arrested at five
o'clock last evening by Policeman
Kennedy on a charge of carrying
concealed weapons. When the prisoner
toid his story in court this morn- I
iug he won the sympathy of the most
hardened police court spectators.
Morgan lives at Fairmont. W. Va..
and had come to Pittsburg in search
ol' his daughter, who had been en- j
ticed away from home. He had made .
several visits here during the past few I
months, but had been unable to find j
| any trace of the missing girl. While
| wandering about the streets yesterday j
he saw her on a street car, and a j
! moment later she was telling hitn her j
story. She had run away from her
home with a man who formerly resid- j
ed at Morgantown, W. Va., and who I
had promised to marry her. He had- j
faiieri to keen his word, and when j
found by her father the girl was stayI
ing at a private hospital on Millwood
I avenue. Her father accompanied her
I to the place, and when he learned that
the man who had betrayed her was
likely to put in an appearance during
the evening, he came down town and
purchased a. revolver. He declared
j this morning that the man had told
j his daughter that if her father attempted
to take her from him he
would kill him. and he had purchased
the gun for self-protection.
' A~poIiceman was detailed" ~to go to "f
the institution on Millwood avenue
and the daughter was brought down
to the court room. She was a comely
girl of about J7 years and her meeting
with her father was an affecting
one. Through the kindly office of
Magistrate Stewart, she was forgiven,
and upon the promise of the father
to take her back to his home in Fairmont.
the charge of carrying concealed
weapons was dismissed.
Morgan left the court room with
his daughter and the reconciliation appeared
to be complete.

telegram, hilt we can find out nothing
concerning the .case. Chief of Police
Morgan read the telegram before we
published it,-but he knows nothing of
the man hearing his name.
Just as we go to press we learn that
the above telegram refers to a Mr.
-Morgan living on the east side .of
the river. We withhold the name,,
fearing that the circumstances related
may be exaggerated.
