WAS IT A MURDER ?
A Victim' Friends Disagree With the
Deputy Coroner.
Deputy Coroner Blssell, of Mahanoy (Sty,

(load body was found on the LoblKh Valley
Railroad track, near Park l'lsee, yeeteiday

that the crime was committed for tobbery.
Ho believe that tho wound found on the
back of the victim's bead was doe to a Mutt
from some sharp instrument, and not to In
jury resulting from the victim being struck
by a train.
The theory of murder was tint advntiwil
by the friends of the victim On the rmi
trary, they adhere to tbe belief that the (nun
was killed by a train. They point to the

never carried sums of money on hb) person.
