The Father's Greeting.
With tears streaming down his face
. Hiram Bishop greeted his son Harry
Friday morning in the office of Chief
:fi"' ?' P?Hce Clemens. When they met on
Ute arrival of the chief and party who
had Just come from up the river on
ft,;, ; the street cars,* Hiram Bishop at
$, : once acknowledged the young fellow
iff*: before him as his son and he appeared
to be glad that he had returned not
.'font the dead as he at first supposed,
. hat that be was living and well. While
, the tears were coming the father stood
*' and looked at his son, not in a dazed
if:' sort of way but with that love showlog
In his eyes that a parent has for
his offspring. He could not control
his feelings in the least and wept for
' quite a while after he had beeu
:y brought In where his son was.
IpS Chief Clemans, Harry Bishop. Offl&
jeers-Hinkelman, Kelley and the others
.who were In the party which went to
Plnm Run. three miles from Smithif

% Wheeling this morning at about seven
o'clock after one of the hardest trips
It would have been possible to make
in tills section 01 uie country. 1 lit:
party had been up all night and they
were a tired looking set when they arV
' rived here. Chief Cleraans told of his
g. trip after the voung man who was supj:;
posed to have been dead and burled.
as follows:
All Night Search.
"I left here and with Charles
i Atoms of the gas office, who formerly
V played ball with Bishop, went to Bril%;
llant, Mingo and then to Steubenvillo.
We searched all three of those towns
and during the afternoon got word
: from Lieutenant Hastings that a let/};)
ter had'been received here by Charles
Deltrlch, a driver for Asmns, in which
the statement was made that Bishop
v was at Rodgersville, Ohio. We had
quite a time locating that town but
finally found out it was the name ot
.the postoffice at Plum Run, whore the
United States Coal Company's mines
are located. I at once ordered Hinkelman
and Kelley to come to Wr Trenton
and on meeting them there we got
an express wagon and team ami started
for Plum Run. It was one of the
i worst drives I have ever taken. The
mnd was bad and It was dark and cold.

said the man we were af'er was
afraid of being arrested and would

Reason for Mistake.

i : relatives of the young man could have
? been mistaken in their identification
of the body of the dead man they
teg buried as their son."

the man who talked with him in the
g'i pirk to the effect that he was from
;v} the east. The chief is also of the
??., opinion that the dead man was tiegj;
inented, and as evidence of this points
?v to the testimony of the negro tim
' Howard and the bell boy. Lawrence |
??;; Fitxpa trick, who say and talked with
the man on the wharf. Regarding]
the testimony at the inquest that a
man had ben seen get on a Bellalre
car of the Wheeling Traction line, the
f Chief said Superintendent Hassett of
the Traction company had intorfo
> gated all the crews on that line ami
not one of them had seen any such
man.
pi The police are still working on the
case "and believe they will be able to
||| ind the revolver with which i!u
crime was committed and also that
sji they will be able to show that the
^stranger committed suicide.
As strange as any of the startling
?*; ' incidents in tije.moet mysterious mmtier
case in the history of the city was
the meeting between Harry Bishop
&V; and ill* family Friday. The parents

In company with Charles Drielpjrst,
the fatbef and son hurried to their

street There was a little scene. His
mother was not Instantly convinced.
Together his parents examined th?
scars on him body and made him prove
that be was really their son. This
done he shook hands with all pi sent
and then went out "to see some of
his friends,' as he expressed It.
"Hello Bishop, how are you?" was
the reporter's salutation.
To a News man he submitted to
be interviewed, though he stated he
had not yet bail any breakfast and
against the wishes of his friends uho
were anxious to escort him around to
the crowds that gathered wherever he
appeared on the street. j

when he first heard ahout a corpse
hat ing been found on the wharf nore
and Identified by his people as his own
dead body. He said he received this
word on Monday. He thought the
Klttannlng people were "only kidding"
and didn't pay any attention to the re-1
port until the police took the matter
?P.
Didn't Talk to Mother.
He denied positively that he had
talked to his step-mother over a telephone
from Klttannlng and-that she
had failed to recognize his voice. He
left Klttannlng Monday evening with
Isaac Cousins and his son Charles and
came to Plum Run. He had not received
the message from the Wheeling
police telling him that he would be
immune from arrest if he came here
and cleared up the mystery.
During his stay at Kittanning. he
resided at the home of Constable I
Richardson. It was Richardson that
told him of his parents' strange mistake
and advised him to go home at
once. He was employed about some j
livery In the city, where be hn.l been i
staying for one year and three mouths j
He said that somehow or other the!
people on the car "got next" to the |
fact that "the dead man" was or, the!
car. He was subjected to a series of j
cross-examination all the way down
by men and women. He took it all in
good part and was in the best of
spirits when he met his father at the
city building, whithter he had gone
with the chief.
The Father's Story.
Hiram Bishop was also interviewed j
by a reporter. He was found standing j
at the cottage gate.
"it's too wonderful to believe," he1,
said. "I wouldn't believe that it was I
my son at Plum Rua until I had proved
It. This is a terrible affair. It is the!
worst 1 ever heard of. That man we'
buried Tuesday was scarred exactly:
like Harry: he looked like him. I wasj
sure it was my hoy. We were con-j
rinced it could not be any one else.
"Those reports about my knowing
about Harry's whereabouts and trying!
to keep it secret are not true. It Is j
about as true as those lying tales
about me wanting to claim this body
as Harry's so as to get that little bit
of insurance money. We would not!
have taken the money until the matter,
had been sifted to the bottom, though \
we didn't doubt for an instant that he |
had buried any one but our son.
"I was all worked up when they first
brought that body Into the yard. It
did look like Harry, exactly like him
I said that Harry Cousins had killed
him. Well, I'm sorry I said that. I
hardly knew what I was saying at
the time. Newspaper man. this trou-1
hie is something awful. Yon can't un-i
derstand it."
When queried as to the murder ofj
the unknown corpse buried at Mt. Zion |
cemetery. Mr. Bishop said: "I don't i
know any more about that than you;
do. but I can tell you exactly what
I Constable Driehorst told me the day j
atter the strange man with a blood-,
covered face was seen on a Bellaire i
car.
"Constable Driehorst told me rfcat,
he had followed the strange man to j
Bellalre: that someone hnd seen him.
go Into a pawn shop and pawn a ring \
for IIS and then sell the ticket for $C.
! After selling the ticket, the man .--aid j
laughingly that he had just killed Harry
Bishop and that he was going to
fix a couple more."
