——DLast Saturday morning Saniue!
Elder, conductor of the local freight
train between Tyrone and Curwensville)
met an awful death in the yard at the
former place. While standing on the
track taking the numbers of the cars that
were to compose his train, a detached
passenger engine, which was being taken
to water, knocked him down and liter-
ally cut him to pieces, his head being
severed from his body. Another en-
gine which was being backed for a simi-
lar purpose, passed over the mutilated
body before it could be stopped. The
unfortunate man was about 28 years of
age and lott a wife and three children. I
Saturday there were proceedings in the
Court House before Judges Furst and.
Rhoades, on a writ of habeas corpus, to
determine whether there was sufficient
reason for holding Alfred Andrews for
the murder of Clara Price, for which of-
fense he has been arrested. The prisoner
was represented by J. L. Spangler and
E. R. Chambers, esgs., and the common-
wealth by District Attorney J. C. Mey-
er assisted by Judge Orvis. Previous
to the commencement of the hearing
Judge Furst requested the reporters not
to give the evidence in detail, as such
publication tended to affect the public
mind in a way that impeded the draw-
ing of a jury in the final trial before
The object of the proceedings was to
determine whether there was sufficient
cause, as shown by evidence, to hold the
prisoner for trial, and therefore the testi-
mony was confined exclusively to the side
of the commonwealth, and no more was
given than would answer that purpose,
as we understand that much that will be
brought out in the ultimate trial was
withheld. What was elicited on this
occasion differs but little in import
from what we gave our readers last week
in the published details of the murder.
The first witness was James Marstel-
ler, who in driving along the road, with
another person, on a hunting expedi-
tion, was the first to discover the body
of the murdered girl lying in the road,
shortly after ten o'clock, on the morn-
ing of the 27th of November. Mr.
Marsteller said that when he saw the
prostrate body his first impression was
that it was some Hungarian woman who,
having become intoxicated, was sleeping
off the effects, but upon closer examina-
tion, finding that it was a dead woman,
he told how he proceeded to Karthaus,
gave the alarm and returned with a par-
ty to where the body was lying, which
proved to be that ot Clara Price.
Mrs. Sarah Michaels, who lives along
the Karthaus pike near Pine Glen, testi-
fied thatshe saw Clara Price pass ler
house between 9 and 9.30 a. m., on the
fatal morning, going towards Karthaus,
and that very soon atter she saw a
strangejman going in the same direction,
walking very fast. She did not get a
good look at his face as he passed: the
wind ow, but he was a small man and
wore a black derby hat. The prisoner
with four or five others stood up for her
inspection, but she failed to identity
him in court. She also testified that
two peddlers had passed her house some
time before Miss Price passed.
Mrs. Mulholland, who also lives along
the same road, testified to having seen
Miss Price goalong the road to Karthaus
and a strange man going in the same di-
rection soon after. She recognized the
prisoner as the man. Mrs. Jesse Irwin,
whose residence is also along the Kar-
thaus pike, testified to about the same,
and recognized the prisoner.
Mr. S. E. Emerick said that on the
morning in question, while driving
along the road, he saw a strange man
traveling the road in the direction
of Karthaus, about 2} miles from where
the body was found, and that the prison-
er looked like that man.
The testimony of Esquire A. Rankin,
of Karthaus, told how on the morning
of the murder he w.s informed that
the body of a woman had been found
on the road about half a mile from the
river across from Karthaus, how he pro-
ceeded to the spot and took observations
and empanelled a jury for investigation
according to law. There were many
tracks and marks in the road indicating
astruggle, a fact which has already been
published in our columns. Hs said
that the tram ping of the people who had
collected made the original tracks to a
great extent unintelligible, but at one
pointin a ditch along the road, some 20
or 30 feet from the body, two foot prints
of a man, going in the direction of the
woods, were distinct. He measured
these and they were10} inches in length.
His testimony did not verify the report
that the inipression of the left foot was
more indistinct than the right, to tally
with the fact that the sole of the left shoe
of the prisoner had been torn off.
Mrs. Ellen Watson recognized the
prisoner as the man who passed her
house afier Clara Price. Thomas Pitts,
who was employed on the railroad
the river about a mile from
where the body of the girl was found,
heard five shots in quick succession about
10 o'clock. Mrs. Croft, who lives along
the main road about five miles from the
river, testified that a strange man stop-
ped at her house the night before the
murder, leaving at 8 o’clock in the
morning in the direction of Karthaus.
She recognized the prisoneras that man.
Dr Nevling, of Karthaus, told in his
testimony how he had been called on
to examine the body of Miss Price who
had been found dead in the road a short
distance from the river on Wednesday
morning, the 27th of November. He
gave in detail the wounds found on her
person, agreeing with what has already
been published. He made a post mor-
tem examination which showed evidence
He gave an account of his
measurement of the only distinetly
recognizable tracks, two in number,
of violence.
which were found in the ditch and led
into the woods. In the making of the
lett track the heel had been brought
down heavily into the ground with the
ball of the foot on the slope of the ditch,
necessarily making that part of the im-
pression indistine’. The right foot land-
ed on the top of the bank, making a
distinct mark.
Herbert Bates saw a stranger pass
along the road near Boak’s store about
9 o'clock going towards Karthaus, and
saw him returning towards Snow Shoe
between 1and 2 o’clock in the afternoon.
He recognized the prisoner as the per-
son he saw. Reuben Holt, Redmond
Holt, and others, who were working at
Moyer’s lumber job, gave the particulars
of Andrew’s appearance in their midst
on the morning of the murder, which
do not differ materially from what we
have already published. Although he
asked about work he showed no earnest
disposition to get employment, but ask-
ed to be shown the way toKarthaus.
Reuben Holt got on a stump and point-
ed out the way he'should go, whereupon
he said that he would go and get his
dinner. After going away and return-
ing in about half an hour, while they
were taking a lunch, he asked to be di-
rected to the main road which was
shown him by Thomas Smith who was
going part way in that direction. These
witnesses all recognized the prisoner.
Theodore Cramer, one of the Moyer
workmen, testified that he had known
Andrews for about a year and that he
was the man that made an appearance
at the lumber job.
ConstableSimlar gave the particulars
of how he arrested Andrews at Brisbin
on the Sunday after the, murder of Clara
Price, and how on another visit to the
house he obtained the shoes he wore on
the day of the murder, which were given
him by Andrews’ wife, she having got
them out of the stairway.
After the close of the testimony Mr.
Spangler addressed the Court, contend-
ing that there was not sufficientevidence
to hold the prisoner, but the Court re-
manded him to jail for trial.
It struck almost every person who
heard these proceedings that although
there were appearances sufficient to
warrant further investigation, there was
not evidence sufficient, so far, to effect
a conviction. But it is said that the
commonwealth did not bring out evi-
dence that will be much more damaging
to the prisoner’s case and which will be
available when the final trial comes off.
A DENTAL.—Robert Wighaman
writes us from Philipsburg denying the
report that he visited Hopkins, the mur-
derer of his mother and sister, at the
Bellefonte jail. He says : “I did not go
to see him and have no intention of do-
ing so. I consider it Zoo late for him to
have anything to say to me.”
—Inthe programme of the Teachers’
Institute published last week, Friday
evening of next week was erroneously
stated as the time of Burdette’s humor-
ous lecture on the “Rise and Fall of the
Mustache.” It will be delivered on
Thursday evening in the Court House,
and will afford an attractive feature of
that Institute's proceedings.
plaint having been made to the
editor of the Renovo News that persons
confined in the lock-up in that place
have no pillow upon which to rest their
weary heads at night, he at once started
a movement to secure one. A subscrip-
tion was started and the News headed
the list with a double contribution of
twenty cents, ten cents being from the
kind hearted ‘‘devil,” who thinks he
can get along through the holidays
without this particular dime.
PrEAcHER.—The Philipsburg Ledger
pays the following sinister compliment
to u clergyman who, it appears, preach-
ed a trial sermon in that place some
Sundays ago :
Rev. M.C. Bailey, of Fair Chance,
Pa., occupied the pulpit of the Presby-
terian church on Sunday morning and
evening. His discourse in the evening
was one of the most remarkable pieces
of pulpit eloquence ever preached to a
Philipsburg audience. The reverend
gentleman's declaration that “every-
body can not be rich and eat pound cake
three times a day,” was undeniably true,
although the astonished faces of his
hearers were evidence that they never
knew before that wealthy people lived
on such a dyspepsia producing diet.
His announcement that ‘Jesus Christ
gives the saint: pointers” concerning
the time when their friends are to be
called fronmearth to heaven, was also, to
say the least, a very startling and world.
ly way of putting it. On the whole we
think should the Presbyterians engage
Mr. Baily as their pastor there would be
no doubt but that he would “draw big
houses,” 50 as to speak, evenif he did it
at the expense of keeping away some of
the regular membership who don’t ad-
mire the Sam Small style of oratory.

——1The Steam Heating Company of
this place has increased the capacity of
its plant by the addition of another
boiler of the capcity of 80 horse power.
Tour large boilers of about 100 horse
power each have been supplying the
steam, but as the customers of the com-
pany increase in number a larger capa-
city is required and hence the additional
boiler, which will give an increase of
about 20 per cent. In ordinary weather
the original four boilers are ample, the
new one being intended for reinforce-
ment during extra cold weather.
——The two mammoth furnaces at
this place are doing a heavy business.
Collin’s averages from ninety to ninety-

resumption of operations, puts out its
bundred tons a day easily, more fre-
quently going beyond that amount in its
daily output. Last Sunday a week its
24 hours production was 120 tons.
These large plants, turning out the crude
metal in such quantities, should be the
nucleus of an extensive production at
this place of various articles of manufac-
tured iron.

sermon on the occasion was scholarly,
artistically eloquent, in fact Shakespear
ian. It was suited for an audience of
‘high culture, and is highly extolled bv
those who he rd it. TItis generally re-
gretted that this able prelate has kept
his light so long under a bushel. The
people of St John’s will extend him a
hearly welcome to their parish on all
occasions. Come again, Monsignor.

——A few days ago while the crops
on the Ricker farm in East Nittany
Valley were being threshed, a chicken
was found under the sheaves of wheat
in one of the mows where it had been
since the grain was placed there on the
fifteenth day of July. The chicken
had lived all that time without food
or water, and weighed when found
considerably less than a pound, though
still alive.
The tobacco crop of Clinton
County, which is now being prepared
for market, is said to be of an un-
usually fine quality, and the growers are
likely to realize good prices, as the
acreage was not o large as last year.
Franklin Koch, tenant on the farm of
Dr. Hale, a mile and a half east of
Bellefonte, did remarkably well this
year with corn. From a field of 38
acres he produced 4508 bushels, and this
was done notwithstanding that the first
planting was destroyed by the June
flood, and it was necessary to replant.
Mr. Koch knows how to farm. He
doesn’t rush his work, but when the
time comes for harvesting he has some-
thing to harvest.
—During the past summer a structure
was in progress of erection at the
nail works in this place for the produc- |
tion of gas by Rose's patent process, to
be used as fuel ir. the furnaces and un- |
der the boilers of the mill. This gas
producer, as it is called, has been com- |
pleted for some weeks, the mains are
laid to the furnaces and boilers, and
everything is in readiness for its, oper-
ation with the exception of a receiver
which will contain the gas and regulate
its distribution to the points where it
shall be used. This gaseous fuel has
been tested at the miil and gives the
most complete satisfaction, and will be
in full use after the receiver is comple-
ted, which it will be in a very short time.
Bituminous coal is used as the basis for
the production of this gas, to which is |
added oxygen by means of a blower, and |
hydrogen through superheated steam,
the whole being enriched by hydro-
carbons which in addition to enriching
the gas greatly increases its volume.
By this process an astonishingly large
amount of gas can be made, of a quality
line enough for illumination. The pro-
ducer has a capacity of about 100,000
cubic feet per hour, and in 1ts operation
uses about 5 tons of coal in ten hours, or
at the rate of about 12 tons a day, which
will amply supply all the gas which the
mill will require as fuel in its furnaces
and for its engine. As the mill has been
using about 60 tons of coal a day it is
easily seen what a great saving this
will effect, amounting to between $60
and $70 a day. Both the Snow Shoe
and Woodland coal have been tried and
have rendered satisfaction in this process.
The fuel produced by the divice will
be used in 14 puddling furnaces, 3 heat-
ing furnaces, 1 poking furnace and un-
der the boilers for the generation of
steam. The mill is now running double
turn, puddling from 30 to 35 tons per
day,and is finding a ready market for its
Haven Democrat of Wednesday pub-
lished the following in relation to the
person who is 1nour prison charged with
the murder of Clara Price :
“Ex-Representative Joseph W. Mer-
rey, of Beech Creek, is in the city to-
day, and he gave us some reminiscences
of Alfred Andrews, the young man now
in jail at Bellefonte charged with the
murder of Clara Price, near Karthaus,
in Burnside township, Centre county.
According to Mr. Merrey, who says
that he knows all about Andrews,
the so-called murderer worked in R. D.
Peck’s livery, in this city, in 1836, and
afterwards worked for a week or at least
a tew days at the Central Hotel for
George Ronian. He then went to
Beech Creek and worked for Mr. Mer-
rey for several months, doing the chores
around the house and premises. In
July ofthat year Mr. M. says Andrews
cut his finger in some manner and as
soon as he saw blood was so chicken-
hearted that he fainted away. After
leaving Mr. Merrey’s employ he
worked for John McLeod, of Castanea,
for several months, and then went to
Keating ard worked for George Reed
of the Keating House. From Keating
he migrated to Karthaus and worked in
the mines and there married. He after-
wards worked for David Price, the mur-
dered girl’s father, who we [pelieve is
dead. From there he went tc Brisbin,
where he was arrested. Mr. Merrey de-
scribes him as a small sized man, per-
haps about five feet six inches tall,
sickly and pale-faced looking, and savs
he does not believe they have got the
right man at all, as he can’t conceive of
sucha man as Andrews having nerve
enough to commit such a crime.”
——The Teachers’ County Institute
nextjweek will doubtless draw a great
number of visitors to Bellefonte, in-
cluding the large corps of teachers who
have charge of our county schools. As
they are paid for the time spent in
attending Institutes we can not see any
reasonable motive for staying away.
Prof. Wolf and the other managers
who have been working hard to make
the coming Institute a success, will
furnish much that will be instructive
and beneficial to the teachers and en-
tertaining to those who will att>nd the
proceedings. Upon three evenings, in-
cluding the occasion of Burdeite’s lec-
ture on Thursday evening, the small
sum of 25 cents will be charged for ad-

FounNp Deap oN THE SEVEN MouN
TAINS. —On Wednesday morning abou
10 o'clock the body of Samuel Kelly,
an old and well known resident of
Potters Mills, was found in the road
near Foust’s, on the Seven Moun-
tains. The discovery was made by
Mr. J. M. Bunnell, of the firm of
Bunnell & Aiken’s of this place, who
was driving to Potters Mills. Mr. Keliy
had been over to Mifflin county, and
had left Milroy for home apparently
not come from a natural cause. He
was about 65 years of age, had been a
soldier during the war and was highly
esteemed in the neighborhood in which
"he lived.
A New CuurcH.—-The United
| Brethren Congregation of Bellefonte
are making an effort to build a new
church on the site of their present struc-
ture on West High Street, which they
intend shall be an improvement to that
part of town. They have not fully
decided as to the material that shall
be used in the construction, but most
likely it will be a brick building. As
the congregation is weak financially
they solicit the aid of a generous public.
Among the active movers in this inter-
prise is Mrs. C. L. Rote who has
succeeded in working up an interest
among the good women of this place
and Coleville in the formation of a
Sewing Society which is working hard
to raise means for the new church
building. Among other devices they
have dressed two beautiful large dolls for
which four hitle girls are contesting.
These dolls are on exhibition in Joseph
Brothers’ and Garman & Son’s store
windows. These gentlemen are au-
thorized to sell them and in case of
a sale they will be replaced by others
of equal size and value. The dolls
were purchased and donated by Mrs.
C. L. Rote. The old church building
is for sale to the highest bidder.
