TR A Jk ii iiJi JrLi 'il JLlvji iGikj LEGAL MACHINERY IN QUICK OPERATION Case of Bartholomew Croto Being Hard Today by the Grand Jury at . Montpelier., AN INDICTMENT IS LOOKED FOR Young Peter Vorron, Edith . Vorron, Drs. Jackson, and B.W. Hooker Exam-Lied-The.Evi-dence. Montpelier, Sept. 11. The case of Bar tholomew Croto, who Las been in jail for two days, having been arrested as a sus pect in the Vorrou murder at East Mont pelier, was brought before the grand jury this forenoon, witnesses having been sum moned yesterday. ' If an Indictment Is found there is a probability that the case w in go before the present term .of Wash ington county court. All day yesterday the officers were busy summoning witnesses, a considerable num ber having been called, the chief one, of course, being the twelve year-old son of the murdered man, who was the only wit ness to the shooting, so far as known, and who .saw the murderer running away. At the trial his testimony will be of much im portance. The Ir 1 is not able to Identify the murderer as, according to his story told by him the next day after the murder, he did uot see the man as he lay in wait for his victim. IBs only glimpse of him was when he scrambled from the team and looking back saw a man .running to the woods some dis tance aay. As it was a moonlight night . the hoy was able to see the gun which the man carried In his hand. Outside of the fact that the man was rather under me dium size the boy will probably not be able to further describe the mau who shot his father. Croto is represented by attorney M. M. Gordon of Barre. At his cell in the jail Croto has maintained a sphynx like silence, having evidently been cau tioned by his lawyer not to talk with any one except himself. Even to questions as to his state of health Croto is accustomed to replying simply with a shrug of his shoulders and a smllo. He does not ap pear to be uneasy over his position. The witnesses before the grand jury this forenoon included two of the children, the oldest of those wh'O were re siding at mime at the time of the murder, Peter, twelve years old and Edith, who is fifteen years old. Both of the children are bright appear ing and the daughter has recently assum ed a good deal of the work of caring for the large family. Drs. J. Henry Jackson and Joe W. Jackson of liarre. the physicians who per formed the autopsy upon the body of the murdered man yesterday, were also impor tant witnesses this forenoon. B. W. Hooker also of Barre, the undertaker who took charge of the body when notified by Selectman George Kelton of East Montpe lier, was before the jury this forenoon. The body lay , In his undertaking rooms during the autopsy, having been taken there at 3 o'clock Tuesday morning. The hearing took an adjournment at coon and reconvened at 2 o'clock this af ternoon. Something like 23 more witnesses have been summoned and will be examined before the grand jury makes a report. It Is probable that the hearing of tuis evi dence will continue during this afternoon and the greater part of tomorrow. COL. ESTEY A DIRECTOR. Y'ermooter In National liifle A I lion. Sea Girt, N.

A small one-story building on Highland avenue, used by Sowden & Lyon for the storage of gasolene, was burned to the ground shortly after 7 o'clock last even nig. making a very spectacular b'.aze, caus ing nearly all the city's fire equipment to respond to an alarm from box 02 and giv ing the impression throughout the city of : a serious tire, q he loss was small, being confiued t,o the value of the til) g tllons of gasolene consumed. The fire caught from a lantern. Mr. Lyons went to the storage buiUIiag t 7 o'clock to draw several galious for deliv ery today, lie set the lantern down near by and started to draw out the gasolene. It is supposed that the vapor from the stream of oil became Ignited from the antern, and soou the building soaked with lard and oil it having been former ly used as a lard house was on tire. Mr. Lyon attempted to put out the fire alone but it spread with such rapidity that his task was impossible. Phen an alarm was ruug In from the box on the corner of Mount aud Washing ton streets. By the time that the fire companies arrived the storage building was a mass of flames. The gasoline tank fewas melted allowing the oil to run out. tighty gallons of this liquid burning made a hot tire and caused a redaction to be cast over that section of the city, which drew crowds of people to the place. Jt was thought at onetime that the barn and residence of E. M. Lyon would have to go, but the efficient work of the neigh bors with several streams of water - from garden hose kept them wet down until the arrival of the hose companies. Then the spread of the flames was cheeked although the paint on the barn was badly scorched and wilt necessitate repainting. The dis tance bot ween the barn and the storage building was only about 23 feet. the members of the nrm of Sowden tV Lyon have had considerable experience w ith tire recently. Last winter their store was burned out in the lire which destroyed the Currier block and Sheplee building. A few months ago, the barn and the eil to Mr. Lyon's house on Highland Avenue were destroyed. Last evening the firm last 80 gallons of gasolene, while Mr. Lyons' barn was scotched also. The building, 10x12 feet in size, was of no value having beeu partially burned down in the fire last spring. Mr. Lyon had given tne building away aud it was to he removed today or tomorrow.

BROOKFIELD'S MUDDLE Unfortunate Condition in Town Finances. TREASURER'S BOOK LOST Which Leaves Matters so the Selectmen Claim to Have Found Deficit of $2350 in C. H. Bigelow's Accounts. Brooktieid. Sept. li. The Randolph Herald and News publishes the following story of the local topic of discussion for the past few weeks: An unfortunate condition exists with re gard to the finances of the town of Brook Held, involving, it is alleged by the select men, the accounts of the town treasurer, Charles II. Bigelow. The selectmen claim that they have found a deficit amounting to about $2,850 between the receipts of the town and its expenses for the past seven years that the treasurer is unable to account for. Mr., Bigelow denies that there is any such deficit, or any deficit for which heis to blame. Several weeks ago the selectmen. J. W. Untiedt, A. E. Churchill aud A. I). Reed, became suspicious that something was wrong and went to Mr. Bigelow, asking for the chance to inspect the treasurer' account, receipts, vouchers, etc. Mr. Big-. elow told them that he was unable to show one book that contained the itemized ac counts for the reason that when his office at Last Brook field was cleaned last April this book, unbeknown to him at the time, was destroyed by mistake. There was left substantially only the printed town reports for reference. The selectmen took the matter up and claim to have discovered from them a shortage amounting to about $2,830. They sav it came about chiefly in this way that when the uncollected taxes for the rear were paid to the treasurer In ensuing years he failed to make account of them to the town's, credit. Mr. Bigelow has been town clerk aud treasurer for 13 years and all taxes were payable to him until the expir tion of the discount period in October of each year. 1 Mr. Bigelow asserts his innocence of both error aud guile. He says there is no leakaae aud that the lost book, if he had it, would sustain him. He has ottered to leave the whole question out to expert ac countants to determine. From the data at hand it would seem very difficult to show anything conclusively in any way. The system of bookkeeping has not beeu sim ple, and town and personal accounts have been mixed, it is said. The banking has been done at the Barre Savings ba-ik". Anything reflecting on C. H. Bigeiow's character would require a good deal of proof in this vicinity, lie has been es teemed by his townsman and those of neighboring towns as a gentleman of Irte proachable virtue, a fine personal bearing, high business ability and excellent judg ment. He has enjoyed the confidence of Brooklieid voters to a marked degree and has beeu honored by Orange county in be ing chosen assistant judge, which place be now holds He has been prominent iu church work and has stood among Brook- held s best people. Ue has no bad habits. The selectmen, too, are gentlemen cf strength and honor who would not will fully accuse Judge Bigelow or anyone of wrong without believing themselves right. Brooklieid people are divided In opluion, some sustaining the selectmen whileothers hold that the error is not on the part of the treasurer. There Is a general disin clination to believe Judge Bige'ow crim inally at fault. Judge Bigelow has a farm and store business at East Brookfield. His bonds men this year are H. M. Gaylord, M. Peck and T. Calagan. The town is amply in sured against loss, If it Is established that ay has resulted. DEATH OF L C. NOYES. Long Time Resident Died This Morn ing. Lewis C.
