hard at work on the case and It was .
given out last night that a clue had .

Hundreds of people are still crowding
the streets of the little town and

predicament- of Maggie Hartllne, s

Shortly before midnight last Satur
lay, Captain Dawson and one or the
luardB paid a quiet visit to the stable,
itit found Gore Id bed sound asleep
ind no evidence' that anything was
vrong. The- captain, however, was
lot satisfied, and about on hour later
igalit visited the stable very unex
lectedly. He found Gore sitting: up In
led, but saw no one else about the
ilace. Captain Dawson's suspicions
vera further aroused from the fact
h*t Gore was up at such an-unusual
ionr. and he questioned the latter as
o there being: a female about the sta,
tie. Gore streniilusly denied the in
inuatton, whereupon Captain Dawson
itartod to make a careful search ol
he premises. His efforts were re
varded by finding the Hartllne glr
lecreted in the stable.
Monday morning Captain Dawsor

[gainst the girl, charging her wltt

| Duckworth Case
^ PARKERSBURG, Sept 18. ? No
agreement was reached by the jury
yesterday la the case of Simon G.
ntiirtlrnrorfli allarroH fortror nnri DTTlhOT.
At five o'clock In the afternoon the
jury returned to the criminal court
room from the chamber In which It
deliberated for many hours, and reported
that It was Impossible to
agree, and was dismissed, making It
necessary that the history of one of
the most important cases to be trlid
here in recent years be elongated. .
By some It Is said that the .jurors
stood six for acquittal and six for conviction;
but others claim to know that
only two of the jurors favored the acquittal
of the accused.
Duckworth, the man alleged to have
swindled $5,000 from the Equitable
Assurance Society, and also to have
forged the names of a number of men
of prominence and others to papers
necessary in getting the large sum of
money, is still undef bond, and it is
I possible that he will yet be tried at
this term of court on one or more ot
' the several charges under which he
1 being held to the State court. If
: not the forgery charges will be tried
1 at a later term and In the meantime
1 it is possible that the Federal author!'
ties will assume the right to make use
' of the accused who is wanted by the
1 United States for misuse of the mails.

Since no conviction was obtained;
' the defendant stands a good chance

" and may evetually he released from
custody. He has thus far been vie
torlous to a certain extent.
< The jury was given the case Satur'
day afternoon, and deliberated till ten
o'clock tnat nignc witnoui arriving hi

In that "case till yesterday morning,
' when It again took up the constdura'
tlon of the case. The foreman report5
ed three times during the day1 that
> certain phases of the case were not
. fully understood by the Jury, They
were given enlightenment on the subjects
by the court and instructed to
find a verdict if poslsble. Finally, at
five o'clock, at the court's Instruei
tlons, the last report was made and
the foreman said there was no possible
way to get the Jury to agree. It
. was then dismissed.

s suggestion has' not been officially
made, however, that that coincident
