Dyspepsia Cure "Dicests what j cu cat" Last Been Two Weeke Aw To-nl.ht fctronc Chain of Evidence That It Was Me gome Points of Doubt Hail a Lit lie Money, Which Has Disappeared A Caae That at Lcaat Needs Carefnl Inves tigation. It is altogether probable that the body, whose finding the Saturday afternoon before in the Con necticut riter opposite Vernon by Win Late and Eerett Stockwell was toll in Tues day's Reformer, was that of Jatres J Oriftin, familiarly known as "boss Tweed" Griffin of this place, wbo lived alone in a bouse on Vernon street and has leen miss ing since a week airo last Tuesday nigbt when be whs at.out town with two o.her men. As. he was in the habit of going away for days at a time, nothing was thought of it when the body wss riiscoverad and indeed it was buried before much was known about it in Brattleboro anywav. The neighbors bad not noticed then but what be was at borne as much as us ual, lift bis continued absence and tbe description as given in tbe Reformer, started inquiries, by his relatites anu Sunday S W Edgett, bis guardian, and his sister. Mrs Nora Toubill.of Springfield ar.d bis cousins. Mis Nora Uuggan of this cltee, as well as John Baker andjobn Mnynaban, went to Hinsdale to investigate. They cannot te positive until tbe body is exhumed, which will be done tomor permit havir g to b got from f Con cord, but all the evidence they could find points to identity wilh bin). Tbe upper front teeth of the drowned man were missicg: so wers Griffin V. The th'jiub wus gone a the first joint of tbe right band; so wus Griflio's. The handkerchief njBiclied one he bBd. so did the sbirt. and tbe sboe was the same siz; as he fore. His outer cloth ing as buried with him save for a small piece about fix ihebes pijuare, but whether that came from tne coat, wst or trousers was not remembered and thev could rot iden tify that, though Young k Knowlton have since done so as a suit of clothes they sold him about two years ago. And tbe points of the published description that led to sus picion that it as be, the age.tnhout 50 and tbe lirbt moustache mixed with gray, match UrifTin's. The key foucd on him was tried in unlocking his uise Sunday and it tit ted. The most decisive indication was found yesterday. The drowned man's shoe had a broker, heel strap. lo Griflin's bouse whs found a piece of the strap that just matched it. The sboe is of a kind that enly A F Bovnton in town sells, but he cannot remember positively whether he sold a pair to Grillin this year or not. Ibe nrst circumstance of doubt is the Undine of a meerschaum pipe in bis pocket and an effort is in progress to trace the otvt ership cf it., for be was rot known to be a smoker though later inquiry develones tbe fact that be did smoke at hoae, especially when he bad been drinkirg. Hut tte most se rious one is tae advanced state of the- body's decomposition that led to the opinion that it had been in tbe water several weeks and the fBCt that it was far under water. If Gritlin was iu the village the Tuesday night before its discovery it was less thaa four days befute the discovery of the body, and though decomposition proceeds rapid ly in such hot weather, i: hardly seems probable that it coulJ in tba't time have atlvatictd to the e mdilion resi-rihed. Again, if he was drowned here, it would bs supposed that tbe body would sink here ard after ris irg, as it might in that time io such weather, wot. Id remain ou tbe surface, whereas it was found several feet be low or ralber brought up by tbe acci dental touch of one of the young men who dove into about 12 feet of water, rising after the contact. . Otber facts that bear against tbe supposition that it was Griffin ate that of tbe description cf the body is tbat of a man five feet and seven inches tall and weighing lot) to IdO lbs. Grillin is not believed to bave been as tall as that and weighed only about I'tO. But in tbe decomposition and bloating of the body, there may have been an error in tbe description. If it was Griflin's bodv, ti e proba bility is, though it will require more investigation to jusitfy any very posi tive theory tbat lie must have wan dered dovo tbe Hinsdale road and fallen into tbe river near where it wbs found. There was a cut on tbe bead that was at first thought to be a bul let nound, but was Decided later to Pe only an abrasion, and Undertaker Wetbcrbee of Hinsdale, wbo care fully examined tbe body, is positive tbat there was no bullet bole in tbe bead or anywhe'e, and no sign of vio lence on the bodv. There neie ser er.il scars on Griflin's head, one from a fall against a curbing son c months ago ana another from a fall into the cellar after the Revere bouse fcre 2.1 years a.', that both made bad scalp wounds. He eras a man wbo went on occasional sprees, though hard work ing and icofTeosive even when io li quor, so in all likelihood tbe deatb was accidental. There is no reason to suspect sui L'tde, and cone wbo knea him belie e for a moment that be reacbe l bis end io tbat way. His usual employment Tjr years bas heen work in concret eg. but be had been at work rn the highways and received J19 io three weeks. His last pay $10.50 was given him tbe Monday before tbe disap pearance. Heretofore bis wages bad all been paid to his guardian and prob ably there was a sprei es a result that be hareaed to lira tbeni him self tbis liaje. Theories of foul t lav are of course adranced, hut tbera is nothing defi nite to hatg then on yet. Tbe mtet suspicious fact is tbat tbe body must have gone into the rier wtere it was fcutd, aoa be would not natur ally bave pore clown tberi alone io tbe night. Ote suggestion is tbat the scar on bis tetiple. thought to have tei caused .ost mortem cy a alone, wss tbe iiupcesis of a spika on logmen's boots.
