Hanging the Mollie Maguires.
At Bloomsburg, Pa., Monday the 25th inst, three Molly Maguires were executed, viz: Patrick Hester, Patrick Tully and Peter McHugh. A correspondent of theonce Philadelphia Times gives the following ac count of the crime and its detection: Nearly ten years ago, on a crisp Sunday morning the lifeless body of Alexander Ilea, with six gaping bullet wounds upon it, was found lying on the roadway passing from Centralia, in Columbia county, to Mount Carmel, in Northumberland county, and about a mile and a half from the latter place. Of the ten men concerned in the killing, three will meet their deaths on Mouday. Columbia county has never had a hang ing, and when its initial performance aims at three sudded takings-off and the subjects all fally-fledged Mollie Maguires at that, Bloomsburg, the county seat, and known .only to fame as the home of Hon. Charles K. Buckolew, feels a degree of excitement hith erto a stranger to the quiet little town. Pat Hester, Pat Tully and Peter McHugh have been in Bloomsburg jail for more than a year. 'Ihe 9th of August last was to have seen their swingiru-off, but the inevitable writ of error came in the way. and hanging day was put off. but only for a time. The judicial killing of a man of Hester's stamp among his fellowsTally and McHugh are not out of the ordinaiy as Mollie Maguire rascality runsis not the only peculiar phase about this next act in this drama of retributive justice. The murder of Ilea was remarkable in its waj\ None ever accused the sons of Mollie being above theft, but during their reign of violence at the time of and ante-dating the ''long strike" their hands and their revolversthey never used kniveswere kept too busy with destroying the railroad and coal com panies" property and accomplishing schemes of revenge to permit them to rob peo ple, and in the long list of murders exposed by the ferretings of Detective McParlan, there is not one, with the exception of that of Aloxander Pea, that was not committed for the purpose of s.ttisfring the malice of some one. Nor can Alexander Ilea's death be ascribed to the robber's greed, for he gave up his all peaceably, and his death was purely the lesult of wanton brutality. ALEXANDER EEA. Alexander liea, a mining superintendent, was a peaceable and inoffensive m, but naturally tearless, for in the pursuance of his duty in a lawless region he was never aimed. He had a wife and six children, and was considered an estimable gentleman. About half-past nine o'clock on the morning of October 17, 1868. Mr. Ilea was riding in his buggy in the highway in Conyngham township, Columbia county, in the direction of the Coal liidge Improvement company's colliery, and when near a roadside spring, where had been erected a rude watering trough, he was fired on and killed. The excitement ran high. John Duffy, of Mahanoy City Michael Prior, of Brauchdale Thomas Dona hue, of Ashland, and Pat Hester, of Mt. Carmel township, were looked upon as the assassins, and they were at once arrested. Their trials began in Bebruary, 18G9, the de fendants electing to be tried separately. A test case was made against Donahue, but he was acquitted, and the prosecution aban doned the rest of the indictments, and Pat Hester \s as aain a free man. What -Jack Kehoe was among the Schuyl kill county cut-throats, so was Pat Hester among the gang in Northumberland and Columbia countiesthe noblest Mollie of them all. Unlike Kehoe, he was not a coun ty delegate, Dennis F. Canning holding that enviable position, but there was no deviltry afoot round about that he had not a finger in. He was knowii as a bad and violent man, but he was of high standing in the Ancient Order of Hibernians. Near Locust Gap Junction, where the counties of Schuyl kill, Columbia and Northumberland come together, Hester's tavernall the Mollie leaders gained their influence from behind a pine boardfronts the railroad, his surname figuring upon a heavy oval sign-board sur mounting a tall post in the regular olden style. Hester is a rather large, heavy man, with dark eyes and hair, the latter worn long and turned under at the ends, and with massive and stolid, but by no means evil looking features. He has a slightly wicked expression in the eyes, with arching eyebrows, thin lips and narrow chin whiskers, a little lighter in hue than his hair. McParlan, the detective, in his wan derings, rarely traveled out of Schuylkill county, and ho had long been among the Mollies and was a fully accredited member when he first found his way to Northumber land county and to Pat Hester's house. M'PARLAN MAKING LOVE. Outrages were somewhat decreasing in Schuylkill county, while in Columbia and Northumberland counties the Mollies were exercising their own sweet will without let or hindrance, and so McParlan was ordered to bend his steps in that direction. Thomas Donahue, a brother of ''Yellow Jack" Don ahue, who was hung in Mauch Chunck last June, was an intimate friend of Hester, and feeing on a first-class spree in Girardville, in Schuylkill county, was met by McParlan in Jack Kehoe's hotel. McParlan, or McKen na, as he was then known, intimated to Donahue that he had a tender feeling for Pat. Hester's yougest daughter and desired some one to give him an introduction. The pair accordingly journeyed to Locust Gap junction, Donahue the while regaling his comrade with stories of outrages he bad com mitted. Arriving at Hester's house, the cele brated Mollie was not at home, but McParlan was soon placed upon an easy footing with Mrs. Hester and her two blooming daughters, a couple of sons making up the family. Hes ter, who had been overseeing a gang of laborers working on a railroad bridge, came home to dinner. Ned Skivington, ex-county delegate, who will be heard of hereafter, and Pat. McCool afterwards joined the party. During the day Donahue informed Mc Parlin that Hester desired him to burn a bridge in the neighborhood, but the latter thought $200 too fair a price. That night the detective played euchre in the parlor with Hester, his wife and eldest son, and the next morning he left the house. He saw little more of Hester until February, 1877, when the latter, who, in his rush of wickedness, had almost forgotten about poor Alexander Rea's death, was arrested together with Pat. Tully and Peter McHugh, and the three were arraigned, Hester for the second time, for the murder of the mining superintendent. The court was held in Bloomsburg, Mc Parlan's testimony corroborating or being corroborated by that of Mike, alias "Muff," Lawlor (so named from a breed of mufEed necked chickens he raised) and Dan Kelly, alias Manus Kull, better known as "Kelly, the Bum." Kelly, the Bum, himself a party to the assassination of Rea, and who had held an old woman face downward on a red-hot stove, and whose name had spread through four counties as one of the most dastardly ruffians roundabouts, turned State's evidence, but his story was fully substan tieted by reliable witnesses, although without it the other prisoners might have escaped unpunished. Kelly was to the Mollies in the Lehigh region what little "Jimmy" Ker rigan, the "squealer," was to the Schuylkill and Carbon counties assassins. Kelly's sto ry of the killing, as sworn to, was about as follows: MURDERING A SUPEKINTE-iTDENT. On the 16th of October, 1868, the day previous to the murder, he met Pat Hester, Peter McHugh and Ned Skiv ington at Big Mine Hun, in the place of Barney Dolan, who had been de posed as county delegate of Schuylkill coun ty, and succeeded by Jack Kehoe. They afterwards walked to Ashland to Thomas Donahue's saloon, where Hester informed Kelly that he had lost something by not go ing down the, mountain where Hester had been that day. "But there is a good thing to be had to morrow," said Hester, "'for Rea will go to Bell's tunnel, and there is rnonev in it fo us." It was then agreed that Hester, McHugh. Tully, Skivington, Brian^ Campbell, Jim Bradley, Billy Muldouney and Kelty should commit the robbery. Roger Lafferty, alias Johnstone, procured powder and bullets for the pistols of the party. In the morning all but Lafferty went to meet Rea. At German town Muldouney said he was too lame, and dropped behind above the tollgate. Hester, who was too big a man to do the dirty work, left, together with Skivington. He handed Kelly his pistol, saj ing: "Your pistol is no good. Take mine, for I know it's sure." Hester went to Shamokin to purchase some hair to mix with lime for plastering pur poses, and Skivington went to work in the mine to divert suspicion. At the watering trough the party awaited Rea's arrival. But few of the men knew Rea, even by sight, and so a man named Dalton, who WJIS ac quainted with the superintendent, walked up the road to signal Rea's coming by a shake of his hat. Several people passed by, but not until a buggy came in sight did Dalton wave his hat. The carriage reached the spring and the party sprang into the road way. "When ordered to. Rea stepped quietly from the carriage, and without uttering a word, handed his watch and pocket-book to Kelly. "What will we do with him?" said the Bum." "I won't be hunted around the world by any living man," answered McHugh. Then the shooting began, all taking a hand. Rea ran towards the woods, when Tully quickly caught up to him. and, placing his pistol close to the superintendent's head, fired. The party then escaped into the mountains, where the money, amounting to only sixty dollars, was divided, Dal ton receiving a ten dollar bill for his services. Kelly admitted firing two shots at the superintendent. Hester had thought that Rea would have eighteen or nineteen thousand dollars with him, but when he heard how small the actual sum was. he said it was not worth dividing, and refused to take a penny. Kelly's testimony was unshaken before a jury, and verdicts of guilty were rendered against the three men. This was a sad surprise to Pat Hester, for so confident was he that his might would secure his ac quittal that the day before the jury found their verdicts he sent word to Locust Gap to have a grand supper prepaied in his house in celebration of his victory but in stead of enjoying that feast Pat Hester has ever since been liying upon prison fare in Bloomsburg jail. The Final SceneWas Pat. Hester Guilt}/? The day before his execution, Hester part ed with his family, and the scene is thus de scribed: Hester wag tested to-day in a manner here tofore untried. His three daughters and two sons-in-law arrived late last night by a road wagon, having travelled twenty-seven miles. His other son-in-law and daughter returned home last night. Early this morn ing, they, together with their mother, pro ceeded to the prison, and was admitted to his cell. Hester rose from his couch as the door swung open, and discovering his daughters, who were comely in feature and well attired, he staggered forward, trembling in every limb, and was met in the centre of his cell by his children.who threw their arms around his neck and implanted hot kisses of love and affection upon his cheeks. Their screams of despair and heartrending sobs filled the prison and penetrated into its farthest recesses. The condemned man could not find voice to respond to these tokens of fidelity, but the swelling tide of a husband and father's love burst its bonds, and a flood of tears trickling down his livid cheeks indicated sentiments his heart was beating to express. There was but little conversation upon the subiect of the dreaded event, the burden of the talk being confined to the statement that Hester will die an in nocent man. The grief of the youngest daughters, sixteen and eighteen years of age, was uncontrollable and hysterical. TTJLLY'S CONFESSION. Tully made the following confession to one of his attorneys, a short time before his execution: ''Concerning this crime I can't say I am innocent. I can't say any of the party is innocent. You can make Pat Hes ter innocent if you like, but he was there. He was there all the*night at Tom Donahue's saloon, and he gave his pistol to Kelly, and he was at the toll-gate that morning. Kelly swore to some lies, but the most he said was true. Neither Hester nor McHugh told me to do the deed. What I done was done of my own accord, but Hester was body guard and McHugh was county delegate, and if they had said the thing should not be done they could have stopped it. I wasn't so much the order (referring to the Ancient Order of Hibernians) as it was whisky that led me into it. If I had followed my early teachings I never would have got into this trouble. "When the trial first began I would have pleaded guilty, but I had no lawyet and no money to pay one, and I didn't know what* to do, so I pleaded not guilty, as the others did, when I knew it wag a lie. I would have made a statement long ago but I was in a cell with the other two and had no chance. I never had a chance to talk to you alone or I would have told you this before, but I couldn't do it in the cell with the other two. On the trial some of the witnesses against us swore false, but most of what Kelly said was true. He could have sworn to a great deal more, but I guess he didn't mind it at the time. I do say that Tom Donohue is innocent of the crime. He knew nothing about it. Most of the evidence for our defense was false and many of the witnesses were paid for their evidence. I know of a man who would swear that I sat up with him when he had a broken leg, the night before Rea was murdered, but when you asked me during the trial whether I had any witnesses I wouldn't tell you of this man because I knew it was two nights before the murder that I sat up with him and I was not going to bring him here to swear to a lie even to save my neck.'" Was Hester Guilty? A correspondent writing from Bloomsburg the day before the execution said: A shor time since, L. Harmon, a reputable lawyer in Psoria, 111., sent word to Simon P. "Wolvei ton, Esq., of Hester's counsel, informing him that Dominic Gallagher, of Peoria, would swear that "Kelly, the Bum, had narrated to him "allT the particulars of the Rea murder, implicating Tully and McHugh, but stating positively that Pat Hester was in no wise connected with it. This fact was communi cated to the board of pardons, but the affi davit was not forthcoming, and so, with the recollections of the howl over the reprieve of Fisher under similar circumstances in view, the members of the board by a decided vote, it is said, declined to grant Hester a reprieve. Since then the affidavit has been sworn to by Gallagher, and is now on its way East, and if received in time Sheriff Hoffman thinks that it is barely possible, but not probable, that the Governor's Secre tary will be in Bloomsburg to-morrow with a conditional reprieve, to be used only upon the authority of the Governor, and that authority not to be used unless Tully and McHugh make full confessions, clearly showing Hester's innocence. The hair at present is dressed high on the head, around a Spanish comb, narrow in the back of the head, and dropping low on the nape of the neckin a short chatelaine and one or two short curls, and banged and waved on the forehead, or made to look more natural than nature itself with a Mercedes coquetettie, which is an artificial banged and curled front. ^crm SIX. People who still adhere to the look-at-your tonsjue-and-leel of-jour-pulse doctor some times express not a little curiosity hi regard to Dr. R. V. Pierce's original method of dis tinguishing all fonns of chronic disease with out personal consultation. Some even sup pose that he accomplishes this through clair voyance, or some other species of professional juusrlery. All this is utterly talse. He claims to determine diseabe by the rational methods of science only. Sa\s Coniley, in his Bio graphical Encyclopedia of New York State, speaking of this distinguished physician: "He percefeed that in each ot the natural sciences the investiirator proceeds accoidinn to a sys tem ofsiqns. The geologist in his cabinet ac curate!} determines and the cleit of rock, which he has neujrdescribes seen, iio the min ute specimen on his table. And the chemist in his laboratory notes the constituents of theI sun with the same precision that he analjzeo a crj&tal of rock salt, The analogous system developed by Dr. Pierce in Medical Science is worthy of his genm, and ha- made his name justly celebrated."
