—Bellefonte had a stabbing affray on
Satutdav evening. A man by the uatne
of Hugh Hiddle was standing at the
popular loafing place, the south side of
the Diamond, when one William 0'
Urieii, who was under the intlueuce of
liquor walked up toliiddle.nnd demand
ed some money. This being refused,
he asked for Kiddle's pocket knife,
which wasgiyenliim when he thrust
the o|ieti blade into Kiddle's right leg
indicting a wound about an inch in
length apd probable au inch and a half
in depth. William Heed an eye*witness
of the affair said that he was sitting
near the Ikockerhoff House with his
boy, and that Hiddle was there. O'.
linen came out and said to Hiddle,
'Have you any money y' "
' Hiddle answered,' Not a cent."
"Then O'llrien said,'l,et me see your
knife.' "
"Hugh lliddle gave him the knife
when he immediately stabbed him with
it. Hugh raised up, grabbed lite knife
and said, 'See what you have done,'
allowing his leg where it was cut.*'
"O'Brien said 'I did not think I
cut you so bad.' "
"lie then ran into the Brockerlioff
House and from there to thcCummings
House, where he was arrested."
Both of the men bear bad renuta
tions. O'Brien now holds forth in
Fort Walker, while his victim
is improving, witli chances of get

—The Belief on te i),aily News of
Tuesday gives the following account of
how a citizen of Coburn, who wanted
pension money,personated his own wit
nesses, but was caught io tiie trick and
arrested :
John Ernst, a citizen of Coburn, is in
trouble because Ins desire to procure a
liensiott led him to commit forgery and
perhaps ikPijury. John Ernst is partial
ly deaf, which affliction, he says was
caused by his experience in the war, as
a member of Company D, 76th Reg't.,
P. \. It is necessary to have witness
es in regard to such disabilities, and
cither becauae he could not get them or
because it was too much trouble to do
so, John unwisely concluded to do all
the business himself.
Accordingly, it is alleged, he went to
'Squire J. S. Leiser, in Snyder Co., and
under the name of Isaac C. Mussul
man, a member of his company, made
affidavit in his own behalf. It is also
said that he went lief ore 'Squire J. C.
Boal, in Centre Hall, and there, over
the name of William Walter, of Wood
ward, averred that he was deaf when he
came form the army and had been deaf
ever since. He made similar affldavit
before 'Squire Samuel J, Herring, at
I'enn Hall, there personating William
Keiser. Still other similar fraudulent
atlidayits are alleged against Ernst.
The matter was investigated by United
States Commissioner McDevitt,of Sun
bury, who made complaint and Ernst
was arrested. He was taken to Will
iamsport, where he will be detained un
til the meeting of the next United
States Court in that city.
