Wilkesbarre Had a Sensa tion Yesterday When the Body of Anthony Lind acher Was Found. Anthony Lind&cher, a well-known citizen of Wilkesbarre, was found dead in his kitchen yesterday afternoon, probably murdered. The discovery was made by Edward Kear, a neighbor of Lindacher. Mrs. Kear had not seen the old man about the house as usual dur ing the morning, and when her husband returned home she asked him to look Lindacher up. He looked through the back widow and saw the old man lying on the floor. Ho climed in and found Lindacher dead. In the bedroom a chair was overturned, but there were no other signs of vio lence. At the foot of the steps was a plain gold ring, which Lindacher always wore. He was lying with his face to the kitchen door and had been dead some time. Over the left eye there were two cuts. The skull was crushed, but there were no other marks upon him except a redness of tho knees, as if he had been dragged over the floor. What the object of tho murder, if murder it prove to bo, was is not appar ent, unless it was believed the old man had some money hidden away. His son and the neighbors say that he always carried a consieerablo sum of money with him. At the Opera House.
