Katie, kept house for and w as sup ported In him. The cause, the ciiciimstaiices and the particulars of the murder are as )et eti v eloped in piofound mystery. The fact that there were no marks ot a struggle or traics of hliMsl at the spot where the bod was found gives color to the theor) that the deed was committed elsewhere and the bod) brought there to avert suspicion and mislead the punishment of justice. There is iiiut.li buncombe and rubbrsh current in the form of theorus. A paper published )esterda) the stateuit lit that the night target man. Smith, saw three men carr) ing something across the tracks neai the ioiut larl) Sunda) morning, which Might ha.e been the bod) of a man. Smith testihecl to nothing of the sort 'at the iii'iuest vesterda). The best evidence is furnished b) the account of the wrangle and fuss at the corner of Gallagher and Washington streets, which the in ipiest ver) clearl) brings out It is in evi dence that. Inn Bo) le referred to the de ceased as a "son of a b -h." Here Is mo tive for crime in this testimon). It wis rumored for a time 1'iat Mahone) Iml recentl) received the proceeds frum the sale of a house and lot belonging to his father's esta'e at I'rbana. lTpon this belief the theor) that the murder was committed 'o-luone) was gem rail) circulated, but dlss-llisl when It was learned that the proiert) had not et been sold. Another reKirt Is that Detec live Tom F Halls, of tin l. B. A W. had emploved Ma hone) to ait a detective in ball! ing car thieves, and tint m so doing the latter had nnde himself objectionable to u ring of railroad thieves. Detective Halls was seen last night bv a Kin run rcHrter ami in terrogated ou this point. He s,aul that all the eiuplo)es of the I B .1 il'. were by dnt) bound to guaiil propert) and prevent theft, but that he hail no special arrange ment with Maliouey to do an) detective work. "The fact that he was on da) dut) would prevent his being of all) special good to me as a di teclive. Ilesu'es. he was alto- gcthtrtoo geutle-iuauiieitil for the busl ness. lienii) was a might) tine joung man, and 1 am almost inclined to discredit the statement that he drank even a glass or two ot beer on Salimla) night. THE INQUEST. Coroner's llennett'i, OtttciNl Investigation in llemiU XlHlioiiey lleAth. Coroner Bennett commenced his inquest upon the miirdir of Dennis Maliouey, Sun day, and continued it over Monday. Con siderable testimon) of importance was elic ited, but little that Is sufficiently coherent to form a sustained theory, as yet, as to the murder. A gri it deal of circumstantial evnh nee was accumulated. The testiinoii) of M iry. Katie and Han nah Maliouey, sisters of the deceased, was nrst taken. Mary testihed that she saw hiui at supper time Saturday evening and saw nothing unusual about his manner. She said that she never knew of him carry ing weapons, and that when he started out after .supper lie had but hfty cents. She saw hiui sitting at the Lagonda house at 10 o'clock In company with two young men whom she had heard were the Huston brothers. Hannah, who lives at Levy's, also saw hiui at the same time. Katie, who kept house for- him, could give no addi tional testimony, other than that he was generally at home at 11 o'clock. By far tbe most Important testlmoay taken at the liuiuest was that of Andrew N'ealan. It is as follows: J live on Wash ington street, lietwc en Gallagher and Lin den avenue. On in) wiy home last Satur day night, when I got to Chris Selzer's boarding house. It w is live minutes after 12 o'clock. I started on: as I came to Coc ney's building, there I met Mike Do)Ie, ami this fellow that got killed and another fellow 1 didn't know any of them but Mike, and bid him good evening and passed on; and as I turned in lietween Dick McBieen's and another house, to go up home, I met several parties, bid them good evening and stopiied there and talked. One of them was Jim Ito)Ieand two boarders of Chris. Seize r's, one named George something and the other I don't know. Those othi r three li Hows across at Coonej's came across too. Tins little stone cutter. Mattle Farrel, was around talking and rutting up, being just drunk enough to be right smart. I told him to go liou,e; that lhe cops would get hiui if he didn't. Then he wanted tne to take him home. Some started, and one of these hoarders said to me, "And), the) call oj a scab here." I answered Hint 1 didn't give a dam; that 1 didn't den) where 1 worked that I worked at the malleable shops for m) own living. 1 and the little stone-cutter "tarled on to his boardiiig houso When we got as far as the stone-) ard he wanted to rest and we both sat down. Prettv soon one of Christ. Selzer's boarders came clown and said the) had jumped on him for a scab After I left and wanted to go back, I refused. Then Mike Do)le sort of apologized for calling me a scab, but I ansvveicd I didn't mind. Well, this Jim llojle was going to call me out to one side, but I said he could see mo right where I was If be nanted me. He commenced to blow off about a seib. and Used violent language. I did not answer. Doyle and the other two stepped up about this time. Jim Bojle was on the right side of me. Christ Selz er's boarder was right next to him to Ms right side and the man that got killed was right in front of me next to him. I was standing no against the home Do)le was standing at the right side of the man who got killed. The other man besides llojle and the one killed was standing b) the side of Do)Ie and right over in) left shoulder The stone cutter was sitting in Du k Mclireen's door step. The man that got killed m uie the remark to Christ. Selzer's boarder that thev called him a scab. The conversation again became general ou the scab question, and I repeated that it didn't matter to me. The man that got killed said he didn't like that way of doing. I forgot to sa) that while I was talking to Bo)Ie 1 asked him who that tall man was (meaning the deceased). He replied that lie didn't know who the was that he was a stranger to hiui (Bo)le). As I made the remark that the talk almiit scab wouldn't raise any fuss, the fellow at my lett I sup pose the fireman the) talk about said to Mike Do) le: "Some fellow hit that little fellow on the steps" Then Mike Do)Ie. Jim Boleand the fellow that got killed took after him. 1 couldn't see what kind of a man it was tlie) took after. I got out onto the railroad and watched them as far as I could see. They were going down to ward the bridge. 1 went back to see If the little man was hurt, but he had nothing but a little mark on the forehead. After a while 1 saw a man coming down Gallagher street, and when he came close, 1 recog nized It as this Jim lt.nle I said to him: "Did )ou catch him, J nil".'" He said: "Catch him'.' We did something else." I said: "Vou didn't hurt him." and Bovle replied: "We left marks on him, and he won't hit another man soon " I asked what had become ot Mike Do)Ie. and he sajs he "didn't know where the they went reckon they made their sneak." He puiieti oiiniu waicrno pst what was and said: "1 must be going." I savs, "you going out tonight'.'" and he said "in the morning." I then went up and went tobed. Bo)le was all in a fever and seemed much excited all the time we were talking. He was sweating violent)). I said that If the) caught that fellow the) would near! kill him. 1 talked some to in) sister, Ji mile Xealsou. She answered tha) Uo)le was a mean cuss anwa). The fellow that got killed seemed to want to settle the thing and make out there was nothing said. William Huston, of 131 East street, tes tihed to having met Dennis Mahoncy Sat urday evening while witness was with James Dorst, who left soon after. The two walked around till about II) -C. when they separated at Gallagher and Washing ton street. During the evening Mahone) hwl a glass of beer, and witness a glass of pop in the Palace saloon. Witness had on tnpeil pants, iheckecl coat and slouched black hat. lhe clothes might have looked dark after night. Dorst wore black suit and Di uiiis had ou biack coat and vest. striped pants and white straw hat with black band. George Paige, a newsbo), of 23 iUilroad street, testihed to nndltig the body at the railroad crossing and Kiilroad street, at 5 OS Sunda) morning. He testified to having given the alarm and to the other (acts alread) staled. His hat lay three feet from his head over toward the track. He was l)ing on his back, head north and feet south. Ho was closer Chapman's coal office than to High street. Jacob Smith, night watchman at the High street target, testihed to being at his post all Saturday night, knew Dennis Ma hone) and last saw him alive at 5 JO Satur day evening. At 1 o'cIis.k Sunda) morn ing I. 11. &Y. train o. 1 was pulling through. I was out near the target pole to see if ever) thing was all right. As she got about a train length apast I siw two men come mnnlngdow n through the) ard. The) crossed over the tracks some distance from the shanty and went be) oud a small bank located there. When they were out of sight I saw a third person come running down the track and go down the same bank. After the) were gone some time I heard a noise as though some one was throwing nicks. I also heard the barking of a lirge dog. Knew none of the parties and cannot describe them, but they were white men. The third mm wore a light straw hat. Iloja! Echard testlned to having seen the deceased between S and 'J o'clock at High and Limestone with two men (presumably Dorst and Huston). Saw deceased later at about 11 o'clock with others at Gallagiier and Washington streets. Michael Do)le's testimon) corroborated Nealou's inmost particulars. He testihed to the striking of little Farrel and lion Maloney and B )le had given chiseand he toltowed. Timotli) Moran, hremin on the C. C. C. A I , and boarding at Daz)'s. on Linden avenue, was one of the part). BoIels a heav) set, Jow-sized fellow, scpiare shoulders, smooth face, black soft hat ou. The man that did the hitting was tall, wilu black stiff hat, dark clothes ami bundle. Frank IL Slciwe, engineer on the I. B .VI W. sw itch engine No. 110, testified that between .1 and 4 o'clock Sunda) morning. out be) oud Last street, a man came up to Ills engine aril asked tlie vva) to the Columbus track. He came out on the Ohio Souther.i track. He was in a hurry and had on light clothes and a straw hat. He was about live feet tall; had a mustache don'ttenieinberitscolor. Seemed much excited. His coat w as on his arm. and he had his sleeves rolkd up. Some oi the men spoke about his having something sticking out ot his hip pocket. Whenthey told him tlie Columbus track was to the left, he started as if to go thtuugh the creek. Then they told him to go on up to the curve and he could cross over. Daniel Kelly, barfceept r for Andy Farrel, testified to seeing the party at Gallagher and Washington just before midnight. There was then no fussing. His testimon) contained nothing of Importance. Coroner Bennett heard the testimony of lour more witnesses this forvnnon, but nothing new or important was elicited. ARRESTS AND SUSPECTS. I'artlM Held (or Knowladgs of, or Com. pllcity In, the AwaMloatlon Jim Boyla Badly Wanted. A number of arrests have been made. As usnal.where there Is an absence of direct mo tive Apparent on the surface, or a paucity ot f vets, arrests are wild and scattering. The p -eseut case Is no exception. Officer Kur- niss arrested a bad looking character named Jim Mchinsey, Sunday. An ugly daeger was found In his KmessIon, which. Judged by Its size and shape, could have made the wuiiidsupon Mahoney's body. McKets) will have his trial in ina)or's court ola). His brothers from Piuua are in the cltv to day, and they are hue-looking men. Thy claim that Jim Is a fisherman and carried the dagger on his excursions to the woods and streams. He was arrested on Winter streeL Another man, George Morris, alias Spel lacy, alias Hazel, was arrested by a deputa tion of Springfield police at London Sunday at It o'clock. He Is the fellow recognized b) the railroad people Sunday morning who I -ft the city b) way of the Columbus track and who wa. in a greatly agi tated condition. lie was wanted an) how for alleged embezzlement. an account of which appeirs in another co'iiiiiu. Early in the morning Chief Am brose sent Officers Greanev and Mast with some section hands to l,ondon on a hand car. In the expectation that thev would overtake Morris. The chief. In coinpanv with Officer Wilson, boarded the eastward bound train and arrived in London In timi to capture their man. Another man 1 known to have gone over on the train with Morns but he escaped bearheaded lietween the cars. Pat McCann was also locked up Sc dav evening, but soon afterwards releafed, as thcie was nothing upon which to bold hlir. Hike l)o)le has since been held In jaP for possible complicity tn thp crime, and Henrj Spiggnty is behind the bars on tbe same suspicion. A warrant, charging Spiggot) with car-breaking, has been hied by Detec tive Halls, for purposes of detention. IS BUI LK THF M N ? It begins to look more and more as though Jim Boyle were either the assassin of Dennis Mahoney. or has a criminal knowledge of the murder. Bo)le is known to be at his home at Tiffin, having left the cit) on the I. B A W. train Sunday morn ing.

Waltlntin X Midilleton at tits Fair Groom! The Wrenllioe Malrh and Ui Ilarm. Despite the inclemency of the weather on the Fourth, the celebration at the Fair grounds purely as a celebration was an immense success, by far the best out-door entertainment ever given In SpringheM. On account of the bad weather the crowd, although numbering probably n.COO pan admissions, was not large enough to pay the enormous expense which Messrs. Wald man and Middleton were compelled to go to. and the result was that the celebration was a failure hnanciailv. For weeks Messrs, Waldmanaud Middle ton have been working almost night and lay In order that they might put before th Spnngheld people an entertainment, tin equal ot which has never been given in tlinir-lrtcemral trhlnr-Ttierspared neither patm- nor expense, aud thev now have the con scioiisueas of having succeeded in their desire to give a first class show without a single bad feature but thev have nothing more. This is the first exhibition of the kind, to the writer's knowledge, that hasbeen given in Springneld for man) jears, at which beer has not been sold. 1 he managers, al though the) could have sold the beer prlv ilege for at least SSto, concluded not to have any intoxicating liquors on the grounds. The result was that no moie orderly or quiet crowd ever assembled on the fair grounds. Xot an arrest was made, not a tight occurred and there was not even the least bit of disorder. This speaks In worils of high praise for both the crowd in attendance and the managers. Even part of "the programme was carried out to the letter with the exception of the game ot base ball, and the two teams made an earnest endeavor to play that, but thev loun.l it impossible on account of the per sistent rain. The races were run despite the rain and the muddy track. In the running race mile dash, Mollie B., owned by Sn)der, of Auglaize count) ; Thomas K.. owned by Keedy, of Dayton. and Australian, ow ned by , of Mu tual, Champaign county, were entered. Mollie B. won, with Thomas K.. second. ami Australian third. In the trotting race Mr. Ashbaugh's Frank A., Kearns & Brenuers Oddity and Welch's Daniel Moore were entered. The race waj won by Frank A., he taking the hrst, third and fifth heats, and Oddit) th. second. The fourth was a dead heat be tween Frank A. and Daulel Moore. The pony race was won by Billy in two straight heats, with Ale second and Cow boy third. In the trotting race Lew Hagerman, Odd ites driver, was pretty badl) bruised b) being upset. The wrestling match between William Muldoou and the Jap was a magnificent contest. At 5 o'clock the athletes stepped Into the ring prepared for them, and were greeted with prolonged applause. Muldoon wore pink tights with maroon trunks, while the Jap wore black tights with grc-eu trunks. The match was fur the best two bouts In three. Muldoon won the first fall in S minutes after a tremendous struggle. The Jap's remarkable skill made him a favo rite over his big antagonist, and when he won the second bout in 4'tj minutes the crowd cheered him enthusiastically. The hnal bout lasted 7 minutes and resulted In favor of Muldoon. The match was by far the finest athletic exhibition ever given In Springfield and w as more than worth the price of admission. The bring of the (iattltng gun was anoth er excellent feature of the programme. The gun was operated by a squad from Batter) L, this city. Few of the spectators ever before had an) conception of the murderous work the gun Is capable ot doing and thai part of tlie exhibition was much enjo)ed. The Champion City Guards' fancy drill formed a fitting close for the programme. Their work was admirable and showed the care and time that Captain Wagner ami his officers have devoted to their work. The chase with hounds after an escaped slave was made while the guards were drilling. The entertainment throughout was excellent and reflected much credit upon the management. 8AR BREAKER CAUCHT. Henry Hplg-oty, an Alleged Kallroad Uob. ber. Jailed on Sunday. Henry Splgoty, one of the men arrested by the Springfield police at Loudon on Sun day, is now In jail on the charge of car breaking. For several mouths cars in the 1.11. A W. and O. S. j arils in this cit) have been robbed by a gang of thieves whom the police aud detectives have been vainly endeavoring to capture. Spigoty is known to be a member of the gang, and it is now believed that a case can be made against him. The affidavit was tiled against him by Mr. Tom Halls, special agent of the 1. 11. Jfc W. road.
