MCHCOn OiUODT IK TBI ACT.
Last Wednesday morning it was rumored on
the street that Peter Mcllugh, ono of tho con
victcil Mollies, had raado an attempt to escape
from jail the night before, and our reporter was
sent up to ascertain the facts. About two weeks
ago the three men, Hcsler, Tully and Mcllugli
who had been kept In one cell up to thai time,
were separated, nnd put in cells, each by him
self. Mcllugli was left in tho room at llio right
on tho first floor. Suspicions were aroined by
tho fact that ho hung a blanket over tho win
dow, "to keep out the moonlight" ns he sald,and
a close walch was therefore kept. On Tuesday
night Officers ltowbottom and Titus, while on
their Usual rounds, missed Mcllugli, and on
pulling out the bed Uowbottoni'srcvolver,whlcli
he held in his hand, was accidentally discharg
ed. A hole was discovered in the floor, and as
the shot was fired tho voice of the prisoner was
heard saying, "Don't shoot, Pll come out," and
ho did so. The hole was about twenty Inches
square, and made by boring around with a g'tn
let or bit. How he came bv tho tool Is a mys
tery. He had also n case knife witli which
he was trying to dig out under the wall.
He was put back in his cell and
hoppled, and chained to the floor. It has
been customary to hopple the prisoners at night
for some time, but M"lluglt had by some tueins
disposed of these ornaments, and was ready to
walk oil a free man when he reached the opm
air. Unfortunately for him, lie was discovered,
and now clanks his chains with no hope of re
lease. Hester expressed the opinion to your re
wrter that it was n bail job, and thought Mc
Hugh very foolish, as it could only prejudice
bis case the more. He said ho had no doubt
tljat the pap:rs would say that Pat. Howler was
to blame for it, as everything, even the stealing
of Charley Itoss, was put 1m his shoulders.
Hester and Tully, of course, h id nothing to do
with il, as they had not seen Mcllugli fur near
ly two weeks. No ono knows where the knife
Although a foolish attempt where the pros
pect of success was so slight, this eflbrt to escape
by a man convicted of murder, refused a new
trial, and who has failed to obtain a reversal in
the Supreme Court, is no additional evidence of
guilt. It was a struggle for life when every ray
of hope had fled, except ail appeal to the Hoard
of Pardons, and there are but few men who
would not escape if wssible under such circum
stances. All of the prisoners i-till assert their
entire innocence of the crime of which they
were convicted, and hope to be sived through
the Hoard uf Pardons, but, s.iy they, "While we
hope for the best wo are prepared for the worst

u a possible aid to the delrauded parties l
he ponding suit at Philadelphia, and as
warning to others throughout the Staliy w
give a brief resume of that affair :
Sometime in April 1S73, Nicholas Halli
through the agency of T. J. Miller purchase!
t number of shares in the l'ir-t National II. m
of Hluomsburg of Charles It. Paxton
if we remember correctly, which were transferr
ed on the books of the Uink. This was to cu
ible Haliiet to qualify bim-clf as President
the Hank. Mr. Paxton further contracted
ill 210 additional shares at the rate of $350,
share, which, with the other eleven shares gav
Htlliet a control in the Hank. Haliiet had
money with which lo purchase any part of tl
lock, The money for the eleven shares,
wit : three hundred and fifty dollars for eacli
share, was to be p. lid upon the checks of Oroll'
The purchase of the 210 shares was at the s.im
rate, the down payment to be advanced by
( i roll'. Halliet's note and other collaterals were
to be given, but the 240 shares were to lie lie-
as security for payment of the three hundred
and fifty dollars per share. When paid fur
Grofi'and Haliiet iqu.dly, they were to be pari
tiers in the ownership of thu stock. Hut in
meantime it was specially agretd and tiudi
stood, that so soon as the purchase of tiie stock
should be made and Haliiet elected Director am
President of the hank, he would hand over
(Iroll'tho certificate for the eleven shares, and
thenceforth have no interest therein, but
same should be owned by Cirofl)
On the 11 Ih day of April this arrangement
was carried out so far as regards tho purchase
of the eleven shares of stock tho transfer
Haliiet the payment of tho money by Gro
and the contract foi the other 210 shares.
the same day Mr. Paxton resigned as President
of the bank and Nicholas Haliiet was elected a
Director and at the same lime President of the
bank. Ontlielllli of April he gavo bonds,
was sworn and entered uou the duties of the
office. On the same day Mr, Grofl' by his at
torney iu fact, demanded of Haliiet u surrender
of the certilicale of the eleven shares of stock
according lo their agreement, Ilailiet refused
to comply with this demand, In about a week
the Directors "smelt u mouse," and on thu 21st
of April Haliiet was removed as a President
and Director of the Hank, Thereupon Mr,
(J roll' made information before Justico Cham-
berluin alleging that Haliiet was bailee of the
stock, and had convened It to his own use. On
this charge he was committed to jail In default
of $5000 ball. On the 10th of June a hearing
look place beforo Judge Klwell ov a writ of
llabetu Cbrjius. During the hearing it became
evident that tho charge could not be suti!ned,
and the (irotl's, and their accomplice Miller,
suddenly left the Court. In the meantime
Constable Ilidleman had a warrant for their ar
rest, but they were too quick fur him, as well
as for Kherift'Smlth. They tumbled over the

iven, Ihe ten hers, pupils and quite a number
f the parents and friends interested ill educ:
ioti.il nutters, assembl cd at tlie Hidloy Uuiim
liurch on Saturday lut, for the purpose
holding a District Institute.
I he audience was called to order shortly nf-
ttr 10 o'clock a. m. by Mr. Snyder. County Sir
lerinleudent. After making some introduclo.
ry reunrks the subject nf reading was taken uy
eln-s representing nearly all tlie schools o
he district ns formed from tlie pupils present
and a recitation was conducted bv Prof. Noel
of tlie Nnrm.ll School. lie illustrated very I
clearly the elifl'erent meanings conveyed by ma
king different wurds in a sentence emphatic,
and urged the importance of thorough prepa
ration before every recitation.
Tho afternoon session was opened with sing
ng following which was an exercise in spelling
iy Mr. Snyder. Twenty-five words were pro
nounced, and upon correcting it was found that
nearly on tqnal UHnihir were missed by each
of the schools reprm tiled in the class. Prof
Noetling then asked a number of questions up
on the geography of Pennsylvania and Ohio.
He sfHike of the importance of map drawing
in connection with this brunch.
Kssays were next road by three of the pupils
in attendance. A few minutes were lien spent
upon tlie Mibject of arithmetic, followed by an
exercise in language lesons by Prof. Noet
Mr. Snyder then made a few closing remarks
urging upon parents tho duty of co-operating
with, and encouraging the teacher by frequent
vi-ita to the school and not to rely, as too many
parents elo, upon Ihe reports which their chil
dren may give. A vote of lhanks was tender
ed Ptol, Noetling and Superintendent Snider
for the instructions given, and to tlie Tru-tees
for the Use of tlie church.
Tho session was I'lo-e-d willt pinging and
prayer. All seemed highly pleased with the
We think that it would bo mutually advan
tageous if the people throughout the county
were better acquainted with our Normal School
and lis work, and we know of no hotter way lo
attain this end, than by visits like the one Prof,
Noetling has just made us.
No wonder the people have confidence, when
the best physicians are prescribing Dr. Hull's
Cough Syrup ill all cases of Cough, Cold, etc.

is running lor the oflice of Senator from that

No other medicine in tho world was ever
given such a test of itscurativo qualities as
lloschce's German Syrup. In three years
two million four hundred thousand small bot
tles of this medicine was distributed free of
charge by Druggists in this country to those
afllictetl with Consumption, Asthma, Crou
Severe Coughs, Pneumonia and other disca-
cs of tho thioat atid lungs, giving tho Atneri
can people undeniable proof that German
Syrup will euro them. Iho result has been
that druggists in c cry town and village in
tho Pniteil States are recommending it to
their customers. Go to vour druggists and
ask what they know about it. Sample bot
tles 10 cents. Itcgular size 75 cents. Thtce
doses will relieve auy case.
