DID KELLY TELL THE TRUTH ?
While It was irenerally believed that the
threo men were guilty ot the crime, there
were some who, on account of Kelly's infa

justice of taking human life on such evi

and no judicial murder committed.

Tatrick Hester Is the oldest of tho three.
He was born In 1825 In County Roscommon,
Ireland and is therefore 53 years old. He
came to this country in 1810, aud settled in
Schuylkill county where he lived for Borne
time. He afterwards moved to Mount Car
met where he lived uplo tho time of his ar
rest, in the fall of 1870. He held several of
fices. Was school director for a number of
years, and tax collector, for a long time. He
is a large man about 5 leet 10 inches in
height, portly, and weighs over 200 pounds.
His hair is glossy black, and ho wears chin

grey. His eyes are Bmall, and have a pe

came to this country in 18G4. He first spent
about a year in New York State, and then
came to Pennsylvania where he remained
until tho summer of 1872, when he went to

this that makes so many advocates of tho ab

measure neutralizes the beneficial results that
should follow its execution, viz ., tho dim

crease in proportion, to tho disposition of the
publio to shrink from tho execution of a swift

If. therefore, capital punishment could bo

At the May Term I8C9 the case of Duffy
was tried and resulted in the acquittal of the
defendant on ttie 11th of May. On the
game day, the evidence against Hester
at that time being insufficient to convict, a

charged. Prior was tried and acquitted.
Seven years passed by, and no further clue
was discovered as to the murdeieis of Kea.

ceny a msf named Manus Cull, alias Daniel

Learning that there wcre suspicions of his
having somo knowledge of the Rea murder
this man who bad been guilty of almost ev
ery crime on the calendar, concluded to turn
state's evidence and thus save his own neck.
Accoidingly, on his testimony in the fall of
1870, Peter McHugh, aud Patrick Tully
wero arrested as participants in the murder,
and Patrick Hester was rearrested as an ac
cessory before the fact. They were first
lodged in the Pottsvllle jail, and on Janua
ry 31, 1877 brought to this county for trial.
On Wednesday February 7tb the trial be
gan. Messrs. Hughes,Buckalew and District
Attorney Clark were for the Commonwealth
and Messrs Ryon, Wolverton, Freeze,
Brockway, Maban and Elwell for the pris
oners. The prisoners were formally arraign
ed, Tully and McHugh answering "not
guilty" and a special plea was put in for
Hester to the effect that be had once been
arrested and discharged for the same offence,
The court overruled the special plea, and
Hesfer plead "not guilty" and the three de
cided to be tried together,
IDed, and Tully informed Mr. Elwell that
he intended to make a statement. He pre
ferred to wait, however until after the final
action of the Board of Pardons, when he
would tell all, whatever the decision might
be. At that time he acknowledged his guilt,
for the first time to any of his counsel
though he had a short time before giv
en n statement to Captain Alderson,
which n sent to Judge Elwell at Tully's
request. That statement 1, in Bubstance
the same as the one printed below.
While talking he frequently broke down,
and when tho shooting was mentioned he
rested his head on the table and shuddered
with horror at the thought of the terrible
deed. From that time he talked frequently
and freely with Mr. Elwell on tbe subject.
On Tuesday night last, at nine o'clock, al
ter the prisoners had been informed that
there was no hope for them in this world,
Tully wa, called upon. The visitor was ad
mitted by an officer who by the dim light
of a lantern unlocked the iron gate with its
clanklm; chain, and, swinging back the
heavy oaken door on its creaking hinges,
ushered the visitor into the presence of the
doomed man. He was found sitting at tbe
nine table, on which burned a kerosene
lamp casting dim shadows about tbe cell.
After r few remarks in which hs stated that
the decision of the Board of Pardons was as
expected, Tully announced that he was
ready to make his statement, requesting
that it should not be published until he was

Law settled down in Taris, and there put
into full operation his schcrao of attempting
to make "Bills of Credit," equal In valuo to
leeal tender coin. By nn edict ot tho French
Goyernment, they were mado equal legal ten-
posing Iho "gold banks" to havo the amount j
of basis required by law; in their vaults.
To purchasi' a dollar's worth of any commo
dity, with such a currency, makes the 'price
four dollars, or tho teller must suffer a loss,
it is impossible for one dollar to redeem
four ; consequently three dollars o! that cur
rency out of every four, arc a pure fiction or
legal fraud ; and often, a, in Caliiornia re
cently, the entire issue of n so-called gold
bank" is fictitious. This luiiated aud uctitious
currency is tho sole causa of tho cost of living
and of doing business being increased with the
increase of bank currency.
The volume of gold and silver being limi
ted, nndcunency based on it for redemption
purposes, must ba a limited or contracted cur
rency ; entirely inadequate to tho wants of
business, established on u cash basis. This
fettered" currency forces on tho people, tho
credit system of business, and as thtro is a
point beyond which the forced or "inuateu
credit system cannot expand, money panic

nor is it surprlsinz that they should not have
any specie or legal tender money in their vaults
at tho very time when it is most needed.
Tho demands of commerce fur coin, to con
vert into bullion, are inexorable, to pay
debts, and settle foreign balances, which the
banks aro compelled to surrender, from timo
to timo ; to maintain commercial credits, in
tho vain hope of preventing n crisis. As coin
disappears from timo to timo from tlioir
aults, bankers begin to curtail their loans,
and thus call in their promissory notes, which
contracts tho currency, iu tho effort to savo
themselves from failuro or suspension, and
thereby aid in creating a panio and crash, in
stead of preventing them as nothing but ex
pansion or moro money or currency, at a pe
riod of f'inflnted" credit, and threatened crash
could possibly prevent a crisis ; consequently
it is apparent that bank currency or "Bills of
Credit of any kind, aro totally inadquato to
supplement the deficicnciei of coin.

ficiencies of coin; forever prevent money
