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 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.
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
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
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
"What will we do with him?" said the
"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
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.
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.

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

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." For a full explanation ot

Between two and three thousand newspapers in the
United Stites are printed upon what is known as the
Co-operative plan. Nearly forty per cent of all toe
weeklies adopt this method. It makes abetter paper
at a lower cost, and is specially tni'ed for the require
ments of papers in small towns and village'. The sys
tem mnntains a competition with home printed
country journals to such an extent tuat none but those
firmly establ ed and backed up by accumulations of
former prosperity are aMe to stand beside it, and in
the matter ot advertising it offers circulation at a ice
with which the great weeklies are ana le to compete.
The matter has become of vitsl importance, and the
New Y'trk Times a journal having a great name, has
commenced upon'it a vigorous crusade. In its issues
of March 4th, 11th and 19th there appeared long, libel

lished are untrue, and the Times has neglected and re
fused to give them to the public. Despairing ot justice
we sought to use the advertising columns of the limes,

know of is to be found in the fact that we have inaugu
