Norep WEATHER Proraer DEAD.
— Lock Haven’s noted weather prophet,
Jules A Phillips, died last Monday,
aged 81 years. Phillips was an excen-
tric character and was known to every
person in Lock Haven. He was =n
Frenchman by birth and was a veteran
of the Mexican war. For a number of
vears he had been making a living by
fishing, and was considered one of the
luckiest fishermen in that section of the
country. Heleaves a wife and eighteen
berger, of Cold Stream, aboat three
weeks ago, suffering from a very severe
toothache, went to the dentist to have
the tooth extracted. It was so thor-
oughly rootec that it could not be
pulled. A preparation was given him
to put in the tooth for killing the nerve.
Mr. Ellenberger unfortunately kept us-
ing an over-quantity of the liquid, like-
ly swallowing a portion of it, and as a re-
sult his system has become poisoned and
he is suffering very much indeed. For
about eighteen nights in succession he
has not taken his bed.—Philipsburg
Was He INsaxe.—We take thg
following from the Philipsburg Journal
of last Friday.
In a letter received to-day from one
who was brought up in Ponsanooth
where the murderer Andrews was born,
the writer says :
“If he were sane he must have had
some motive for committing such a
dastardly and felonious deed. You
know it is a law amongst mental scien-
tists that men never act without a mo-
tive. I am impressed with the thought
that he was insane. Do you think a
sane man would have acted inthe way
he did and would say what he did? I
have grounds for my opinions at least
quite sufficient upon which to base a
theory of insanity. I never knew the
boy, but know his father very well.
His grandfather, uncles and other rela-
tives were all subject to periodical at-
tacks of insanity. I don’t know whether
you knew his father or not, but he
should have been in an asylum years
ago, for he was more like a madman.
This I know from my own observation
and experience. It is impossible for
such a father to have a son who will
not be damaged in his mental faculties.’
Borouea CoUNCIL.—At a meeting of
council on Monday evening an appro-
priation of $50 was voted to fix up the
room of the Logan Hose house. Re-
quests and petitions for the following ob-
jects were received and referred to the.
appropriate committees: Geo. W. Mil-
ler for exoneration of $4 water tax for
1889; citizens of the extreme end of
Howard street for water extension; Dr.
Hafer for a side walk on Reynold’s ave-
nue; for the opening of an alley in the
rear of Smith street. Street committee
reported the bad condition of a good
many pavements and sidewalks. The
contract for supplying coal to the water
works was awarded to the Bellefonte
Fuel Supply Company at $1.69 per ton.
A complaint was made that Hoover &
Miller had stored at lot of empty coal
oil barrels in the old Snow Shoe depot
and are also storing oil within the bor-
ough, and as there is an ordinance
against such doings the proper committee
was instructed to have it enforced. The
purchase of more hose was again refer-
red to the fire and police committee
with directions to act. The report of
the borough treasurer showed an indebt-
ness of $4,792.56 to that officer. Other
business of minor importance was trans-
——TRecently the Clinton County Com
missioners advertised that they wanted
to borrow $25,000 for county purposes,
for which they proposed to issue bonds
in any amount that the takers might
wish, said bonds to run for ten years and
to bear interest at the rate of four per
cent. per annum. These bonds have al-
ready been gobbled up in sums of trom
$100 to $3,000, says the Lock Haven,
Democrat, “which fact shows that tl e
financial standing of the county is excel-
lent and its credit unimpeachable. All
these bonds were taken inside of the
county, too, with scarcely an effort.

over 22 years of age when his life was
terminated on the gallows. He was
born in Cornwall, England, and came to
this country about five years ago, he
having committed numerous offences,
according to his own admission, before
he left his native land. His father is
still living, from whom he received let-
ters after his conviction for the offence
that brought him to the gallows. In
one of these letters the father claimed
that he had done his duty to his son,
but if he did it seemed to have had but
little effect in keeping him from evil

have lived for awhile in England, and

some money to his counsel to assist in
his defence which they returned to her,

drews’ counsel :

The scene of his crime, the most
revolting that was ever committed in
this part of the state, was on the western
borders ot the county near where the
Susquehanna river separates it from
Clearfield county. The victim of his
lustful and murderous propensities, Miss
Clara Price, a young lady of undoubted
innocence and purity, was a resident of
.Karthaus, a village of Clearfield county
had been temporarily living with a fam-
ily in the latter county, and was going
to visit her friends at Karthaus on the
morning of the 27th of last November,
when, traveling the road alone on foot,
fate placed her in the way of a human
brute in the shape of Alfred Andrews,
and the forfeiture of her young and in-
The details of the foul murder have
already been given in the testimony
elicited in the trial and heretofore pub-
lished. They have also been revealed
of the murderer,
although he attempted to distort them
by falsehood. There can be no doubt
that lust prompted his advances toward
the poor girl on that lonely road, and
that murder followed as an intended
means of covering up his original offense.
It was by a slender thread that the
—Dear Sirs : It is with deep regret that I find
poor wretched Alfred Andrews is guilty of
such an awful crime. I loved the poor mother-
less boy truly. His disposition seemed reck-
less, but I could not believe he could be guilty
of a crime so revolting. He was always kind
in his manner toward me and I could have
made any sacrifice for him. Sir, I know you
have done your uttermost to save his life, and
1 feel now, as I shall ever feel, that everyone
who has had anything to doin the matter
have done their best, and it is justice that he
should suffer for his guilty actions; but God
knows how hard I feel it, poor feliow ! I am
exceedingly grateful to you for your kind let-
ter to hand to-day. It does comfort me to hear
that my poor unfortunate boy should ask par-
don of our merciful God. I can give him up if
I can be sure of his salvation—that is the one
great thing. I cannot expect to survive him
very long. If I have the hope that he is gone
to heaven Ishall try not to grieve more than
I can help. I never knew what real sorrow
was until now. I must again thank you for
your great kindness, and if I were not very
poor I would not think of the sum I borrowed
being sent home again. Judging from your
past kindness and nobleness, I know I may
depend on you as a very true friend in this try-
ing case. The only request that I have to
make is that you will see that some servant of
Christ may be allowed to speak to my poor
Alfred. I consider it aprivilege for Alfred to
be allowed time to seek Christ. Pray, sirs,
urge him to repent—that is all I have to say.
With referenee to his poor body I can do
nothing. I must therefore leave it to the
custom ot that country—or to his wife ; I can
do nothing. Your kind sympathy did me
good, and I had every possible confidence *;in
your ability to save Alfred if he were innocent,
as [ believed him to have been. Oh, the hor-
ror of being deceived in one in whom one
has placed confidence and love! I long
to hear that be has found pardon for his
guilty soul; then I feel that I can follow after
justice was enabled to effect its end.
crime was traced to the criminal and
The fact that Andrews was seen on the
road where the murdered girl was last
seen alive, and that his appearance there
was followed by the finding of her dead
body,led to the theory of his guilt and his
subsequent arrest. It would indeed have
been an unreliable index of his
crime if it had not been for-
tified by his subsequent suspi-
cious movements, by the tell-tale foot-
p iit: testifying against him for his foul
offense, and by corroborating circum-
stances that forged the chain of evidence
against him. The commonwealth
tracked the bloody villain with rare
sagacity, following with unerring scent
the trail of the offender which to unpro-
fessional eyes appeared indistinct and
inconclusive. The pursuit was as unre-
lenting as it was sagacious, and ended in
bringing to bay one of the most fero-
cious beasts that ever roamed this region
and rendered human life unsafe. So
conclusively was the crime fastened up-
on the prisoner that the jury had hardly
rendered their verdict against him until
he admitted its correctness by a confes-
sion in which he acknowledged the mur-
der of his innocent victim, but endeav-
ored to mitigate its most heinous feature
by denying that he was prompted by a
lustful motive.
There can be but little trust placed in
the correctness of the details of Andrews’
confession beyond the fact that it settled
the question of his guilt. He was a nat-
ural liar and by his statement under
oath during the trial, in which he claim-
ed to be innocent of the murder, he add-
ed perjury to his other offense. Accord-
ing to his confession he started out on
the expedition, which culminated in the
sacrifice of innocent Clara Price, armed
with a revolver and for the purpose of
committing crime. An indefiniteinten-
tion of murdering some one occupied his
mind, and he says that on the fatal
morning he met several persons whom
he was inclined to kill. Unfortunately
he met Clara Price while he was under
the influence of this murderous propen-
sity. She was going along the road
while the fiend was close on her track,
on her way to friends in Karthaus,
with a basket on her arm and softly
humming & tune. According to An-
drews statement, upon overtaking her
he asked her what her nume was, which
Friday forty-five and shot her down in the road, inflicting

go on unmolested,tut again pursued her
three mortal wounds. This is his version
of the murderous occurrence, but it bears |

During his last days Andrews had
the advantage of spiritual adviee and
attention, which he gave some indica-
tion of appreciating. Members of the
Y. M. C. A. were attentive in their
ministrations, and visits from Revs,
Hauck, Sarvis and Laurie were frequent.
Fridays were usually the time for relig-
ious demonstrations in his cell.

the Y. M. C. A. were holding services

py,” and got to shouting in regular re-

After Andrews was left alone on

which had been brought to the jail, and
he was taken down through the corridor
to look at it. He expressed himself as
being well pleased with it and appear:

ting him such a good one. He then ex-
pressed a desire to see the rope, which
hé examinel closely, and, fitting the
noose around his neck, remarked that it
he hung and struggled at the end of it
for an hour it would not be sufficient
punishment for the great crime he had
committed. He went to bed about one
o'clock and slept until almostsix o'clock,
and shortly after that hour he was fur-
nished with a breakfast of eggs, toast,
potatoes and coffee. After breakfast he
had his fellow prisoners arranged around
the door of his cell and read to them a
chapter from the Bible and made a pray-
er. He then made an address enjoining
upon them to turn from the evil of their
ways. In themidst of this demonstra-
tion his spiritual advisers, Revs. Hauck,
Sarvis and Prof. Meyer, appeared upon
the scene, when religious services com-
menced, consisting of singing and pray-
rant was read to him by Deputy Sheriff
Wilson, which, without being visibly af-
fected, he listened to while he
rested his arm on the Deputy’s
shoulder, remarking when it was
finished, “Thank God, that is the last
time I shall ever hear that.” teligious
services were then resumed, members of
the Y.M. C. A. taking part, they
singing “How Firm a Foundation” as
the procession moved to the place of ex-
ecution, and followed it up with “Jesus
Lover of my Soul.”
Contrary to expectation the doomed
man faced the terrible ordeal of hanging
with unflincing coolness. At 10.43,
a. m., he was prepared to start for the
gallows, and at that hour the procession
left his cell and proceeded to the scene
of execution in the following order:
Sheriff’s Leahy and Cooke; the priso-
ner, supported on either side by Revs.
Houck and Sarvis ; deputy Sheriff Wil-
son and Lowell Meyer, and then the
jury selected to witness the exe-
cution. :
On arriving at the gallows the prison-
er mounted the steps with firmness,
being accompanied by the two sheriffs,
his spiritual advisers and several others.
After calling for a glass of water he fac-
ed the crowd and with a remarkably.
firm voice said :
“Well, gentlemen, I am here to pay
the penalty of my erime, which I pray
and wish to do with great respect, and I
pray and trust that when I leave this
world I will have eternal life through our
Lord Jesus. I hope, my friends, that
after I am gone from this world I may
meet you allin Heaven above, but if
I had to depend upon this world for
mercy I would never get it, for I know
there are some people in this town who
would throw me into a lake of fire with-
out mercy.
“But to prove to you the mercies of
the other world I will read from the Bible
and I hope you will listen to what I
read. I will read the 14th chapter of
After reading this portion of scripture
he continued in the following strain:
“You may wonder what makes me
stand here in front of you and read this
chapter, but He who has forgiven me
makes me stand here to read this chap-
ter in this book. May God have mercy
on me is my prayer. Oh, my friends,
just pay attention to these few words, as
I do,as I stand before the judgment seat
of Christ, as I stand here to be executed
before you, and, my friends, I hope you
may never come to experience this terri-
ble conditioz. My brethren, I have
read to you this chapter, I call you
brethren because we are all brethren in
the spirit of the Lord. I come here to
pay the penalty of the bad deed I have
committed. I am sorry for the life [
have taken, and I trust I may meet the
girl in Heaven, as I trust I may meet
you all there. I trust I may meet
my parents there. Oh, my friends, I
know I have done wrong, and I willing-
ly pay the penalty of the law for the
crime I have committed. But I must
say to you that I have never known a
father’s love or a mother’s love, a
brother’s-love or a sister’s, but I hope I
may meet them in the world above.
My father never showed me a father’s
love, but may God bless him, and may
God grant him everlasting pardon. I
must give many thanks to the Commis-
sioners of this county, for they have
been very kind to me. I must now
give thanks to the Sheriff and his fami-
“ly; I pray that. the Lord may bless
“and protect them.
“IfI never had the love of God in
my heart I could neverstand betore you
and say these words to you, and I
hope and trust that when I say these
that you may never be led to
er,which continued until the death war-|
about to suffer the penalty of death. I
hope that T will be the last man execut-
ed in the county. I have not had
much experience in the love of Christ
but I desire that you all unite in prayer
with me and I hope you will all listen
to jt.’
Then came the prayer which was de-
livered firmly and earnestly, and after it
he said :
“I trust I may meet the blessed girl
whose life I have stolen from the world.
May T meet her in Heaven and clasp
her hands and say, “I know you.” I am
willing to suffer the penalty of the
offense I have committed, and since I
have committed it I am ready to say that
I desire to suffer the punishment that
awai‘s me, and I hope that the friends
I see around me here to-day may meet
with me around the throne of Heaven.
Now we will repeat the Lord's prayer.’
After his address, when Mr. Cann,
of Philipsburg, went up to him and
asked what he should say to his family,
Andrews replied: “Tell them I am in
