Cooke and Haz Irtt wer captured together later, but not until after escaping Into Mary land, then Into Pennsylvania. After reaching the Maryland side of the riv er Cooke tried to divert the attention of those, making the final preparations: for the assault on the engine bouse so that Brown and the handful left might escape by shooting bis gun from the Maryland heights, but In vain. Cooke and Hanlett took with them In their (light a slave In the family of John Alftadt. but one night while they were asleep he escaped and returned to Harper's Ferrv, They were arrested near Chamher-hiirg. Cooke had In his pn.xesslon several valuable heirlooms of fleorge Washington belonRing to Col. I.oule Washington which he had ppproprlatr (n(, nR)it thp raiders set forth. Col. Washington was among the prisoners taken by the raiders the first rlht. "It did not take long after the ar- j arrival on the scene of a company of (marines under Col. Robert F..

GIVES SEVERAL INCIDENTS Was I'rrspnt nt the Kxeetitlon of the Under of the, Ill-luted Movement. Bamuel R. Avis, one of the most prominent men In thin city Is one of the few survivors of those present at the execution of John Brown of Onsa watmle fame at Harper's Ferry on De cember 2, 1 859. Mr. Avis was but 17 years old at. the time, but his recollec tion of John Brown's raid and Its fatal result to the man In whose brain the plan was co icelved. Last evening Mr. Avis told a representative of Ibis pa per some of the Incidents of that ante bellum affair. Said Mr. Avis: "John Brown came to Harper's Kerry nnd rented a farm known as the Kennedy place perhaps a year before his fateful venture. '1,'hln was some time aiter his Omauatohile affair la Kansas, with his sons, he worked this farm, which was situated on the turnpike between Harper's Per many of the farmers, and also talked with many of the negroes. Cooke was a. brothei-ln-ia w of ex-fiov. Willard of Inldana. This right hand man . of Brown'w was a long haired, light com plexloned chap. His eyes were shifty; be would never look anyone square in the face. Co. ike married Jennie Ken nedy, a Harper's Ferry' girl the court ship being a short one, the two being married In less than a year after he first met her. Cooke whs a dead-shot nnd would go out among the fanners, themselves but. fair marksmen, and show bbi sharp-shooting ability. It may be that he wished to have them know bow deadly a gun was In his hnndn, should occasion rise to show bis nkll. But Ills activities embraced Still another sphere, Cooke organiz ed a dehatina club at. which questions pertaining to -slavery were discussed. He also conducted a private school. But It was In his pylng capacity that he was of direct service to Brown, t'n- doubtedly the Harper's Ferry raid was the result of a belief on John Brown's part, thnt It was time to strike, a be lief Induced by Information given him by Cooke." Mr. UvIh continuing, told of the bringing of arms to Harper's Ferry, In boxen so labelled that, those handling the boxes would be misled as to their contents. John Brown showed bis Ingenuity, or perhaps It might, be tenner his maniacal brilliancy, In tho Invention of a murderous looking, as well ns murderous pike. These were made at Cidllnvlle this state, The pikes were about 7 feet long, surmount ed with a long steel sharp-edged ry and Sharpesbiug the name of Smith. took pos.sessl.in of the Kennedy farm, a young man, John K. Cook by nu me, ill If ted in from somewhere and made the Brown home his headquarters. Quite frequently he traveled about, the neighboring country, and his subse quent history has proved that these expeditions were nothing but spying trips the object, of which were to sound the depths of public sentiment In regard 'o abollton. This He went under I blade. There was a guard at right an Shortly after hejglos to Hie blade. II wns the Inten tion of Brown to place these fearful weapons In the hands of the revolting negroes. The object of the guard was to prevent the negroes In their enthu siasm from thrusting the pike clear through their victims' bodies, thus pre venting the loss of valuable time In w Ithdraw lug the pikes. "A short time ago," paid Mr. Avis, "I talked with one of the men who work ed on these pikes - In the Colltnsvllle i man Cooke made the acquaintance of (factory. He told me that he bad nut known what they were to he used for until after the Harper's Kerry affair." Besides those weapons for the negroes, there was a collection of Sharpe'a ri fles and Maynard primer revolvers concealed at the Kennedy farm. "n the night of the Ifith of October, ISr.S a Sunday night, John Brown and his raiders, men who bad gradually been congregating at his farm for some time set out on their Ill-fated ex pedlllon. In crossing the bridge, the party ran Into Hn old darky llayward Hhepard, watchman employed by the railroad. Fire was opened upon tho negro, and In spite of his attempt to escape, he was killed. It seemed a coincidence that the first person killed In this miniature warfare was n free negro, one of a rae which the move was expected to free, and one killed by the slave-freeing raiders. The watch man at the bridge was taken prisoner, as were many persons who were cross ing the bridge, returning from a Melh odipt revival back In the country, "The party broke up Into two detach ments after capturing the government aisenal, one taking possession of the engine house In the armory yard. The others linrracaded themselves In the building known as Hall's Works, on the Shenandoah. They did not flay there long being driven out. They at tempted to escape across the liver, but one was drowned, one; captured, while one oi two escaped. "The party In the engine bouse held out all day Monday, but their position became a precarious one. Among their prisoners was Mayor Beckham of Harper's Kerry Brown who was with the crowd In the engine house, decided to send the mayor out to see if he could mnke any arrangements under which the raiders would be allowed to leave the town. The mayor did, hut to no end, for after discussing the question, the conclusion wns reiched that since the raiders bad seized gov ernment property, It was not one In his jurisdiction, Mayor Bei kham did not return, and snrnf time after, one of the besieged saw Mr. Beckham appear from the rear of a railroad water tow er, and shot him, This was not tho POST LENTEN NEWS !
