MUSTER'S M3T I.KTTI'.ll.
Tho following letter, addressed to Patrick
Tully and Peter McHugh, was written by
I'utrick Hester, two days before luscxecii
My Dear Friends : I writo these few lines
to both of you. I fupposo it is about my last
writing on this earth, as I beliovo our time in
this world is short, and may God prepare us
for the. next and better world. This I want
our father eonfo'sor to read to both of you, in
leganl to our present situation, and in regard
to what I am convicted ol. In the first place
Kelly sworo that ho and us met at Uarnoy
DolunV, mid went from there to Ashlnud with
him. Next Morris Morrison swore that he
saw you in company with Kelly und others on
tho morning alter Vonahuo was taken, going
to my botii-c. This also you know is a he.
Next Harris swears ho saw mo with a nuin
lier of others at iho toll gate on tho morning
of ltea's death. This nloO is a lie, and botli
of you know it to bo a lio ; and in fact every
other one that swore againit me nt tho rob
niary Couit swore false.
This I will fend with our father confessor
to reul to both of you No one knows any-
thins aboutthis.bnt tho man that dos know
nml should know iill"ubout. this affair. The
mason I writo this is to let you noW that be
fore I die I will relate these facts and thV
i'alc perjury that has been sworn against mo.
I do declare anil will declare that I am not
cuilty of the murder of A. W. Ilea, that I
never got up that job. or plot that has been
Bworn against me and that both of you know,
I writo this to let you know what I intend to
do and will do, but at tho same time, I will
ay nothing to hurt any of your feelings.
This is one thing that I do ask and request
of both of you, as I believe and know that
both of you can say I am not guilty of tli
death of Rea. and that with n clear con
ieieuee, not that I beg any favors of you.only
what is hone it and true before Ood, and may
God do what is right, that is if you want to
do what is just and right, yet you are freo as
to that part, to do what is right, and may
God direct every ono to do what is right, und
may Goil forgive them that is tho cause of
my being here. What I feel roost sorry about
is my poor family to bo left desolate.poor and
forlorn, and I might say homeless, all by this
means, and all that was done was done for
you as well as me. Thero was nothing spared
or left undone that could benefit either you
mo, and it was done and not grudged. And
as for death, I am not afraid, for I am almost
tired of this sinful world, for they are after
mv life these good many years. All that
troubles mo about dying is to die of what
am not guilty of, and that both of you know.
and may God in His mercy do what is just
and right to all. From the first day up to
this present day the whole weight and abuse
is thrown on top of my back, through the
publio press and also through tho communr
Please give tho answer on the return of
t'.iis, and if I have said anything in this that
is not true, nlease state it also. No moro at
present, and God have mercy ou our souls.

Ab stated in these columns two weeks ago,
ITcs'ter and M cllugh both admitted their guilt
on Sunday, the day before tho execution
The abovo letter was written before Hester
knew that Tully had confessed. Tho follow
ing is a tcquel to tho whole matter.
Rev Father Koch, of St. Edward's Roman
Catholio Church, Shamokin, on Sunday told
his congregation that Hester, Tully and
MoHueh were all guilty of tho murder of
Ilea : that they! all. admitted their guilt to
him before the execution, and that the letter
written by Hester and published in tho pa
pers should never have been published and he
advised Mrs. Hester so; that the letter was
written for tho express purposo of influenc
ing Tully and McHugh to assert Hester's in
nocence on the scaffold, and that Hester him
c elf never intended having tho letter pub
lished. Some persons, ho said, had intima
ted that ho had gone to Bloomsburg to uec
his Influence on Tully and McHugh, and try
to persuade them to assert Hester's innocence.
He declared this to be untrue, as he
, went there for no such purpose, and if Tully
and McHugh had dono so they would have
died with perjury on their lips.

StiATINOTOK, Pa., April fi. This morning
this place was the scene of a railroad rollts
ion, which has ended in loss of life. When
the freight train, which left Mauch Chunk
at 4 o'clock this morning, reached here, the
engineer stopped to cool a hot journal. Instead
of side-tracking, he remained on the regular
line, and in n tew minutes a mixed train,
composed of four freight and forty oil tank
cars, dashed into the rear of the first train.
The force of the collision threw several cars
from the track, and some of these, toppling
over on the Lehigh Valley Railroad bridge,
broke through the latter, making it a total
wreck. The collision also expLdcd the boll
er of the engine of the latter train, and this
set fire to the oil cars. As quickly as possi
ble some twenty of the lalter,wliich, although
not burning, were threatened by tho flames
were uncoupled nud pushed back by the
frightened citizens, who were now alarmed
for the safely of their town. The flames
however, communicated to Brown & Wil
liams' machine shop and foundry, and also
to' the Lehigh Valley depot. The latter was
saved, but the former was totally destroyed.
involving a loss of about $00,000. During
the progrcs of the fire an oil tank exploded
killing one. man and severely burning about
a dozen more. Jacou.-IJumniell and his wife,
who lire in a houso somo distance from tlio
depot, made a very narrow escape. A por
tlon of tho boiler of tho exploding engine
crushed through the roof, struck tho bed in
which they were sleeping, but, fortunately.
not injuring them in the least.
The explosion of tho oil tank was caused by
an attempt to empty it from below. When
about half tho-oil had been drawn off tho
flames rushed in and created the explosion
Tho high winds that prevailed in the morning
at one time threatened to destroy the town
and steamers und assistance were sent from
Mauch Chunk. The firemen went to work
immediately upon their arrival, and about 10
o'clock the flames were gotten under control
There aro several conflicting reports as to
who is to blame for the collision. There is
signal here, and it was the duty of the hind
brakeman to signal the oil train, which was
at present running irregularly. Engineer
John Watmere and Fireman Win. Mos'
scr assert that the signal was not turned so
as to signal tbem back, and several citizens
confirm their statement. Even if they had
been signalled it would havo been impossible
to stop the tram, which was a heavy one.run
ning down grade. Both Watmere and Mosscr
were slightly injured by jumping from their
engines before tho collision. The loss which
cannot be estimated at present will be heavy-
Tbo names of the killed and burned aro as
follows: Wm. Shoemaker, killed; Daniel
Rcbu, Ed. Sicbert, Geo. Jones, John Kehncr,
Aaron Snyder, Wm. Kain, Joseph Goldberg,
John Rohrbach, Love Hughes, Samuel
Marshall, and Arthur Williams, burned and
wounded, four or five of whom are not ex
pected to recover. Since the first explosion
thero has been two others, neither of which
have done any considerable damage.

has been arrested in New York for forgery.

Doctors Gave Him Up.
'Is it possible that Mr. Godfrey is up and
at work and cured by so simple a remedy V

A timely dose of Schenck's Mandrake Pills la suro
to prevent an attack of bllUousness, when a short
neglect of the warning Bymptoms may derelop a se
rious case of fever, either bullous, Intermittent or
Schenck's Mandrake rills remove all causes ot bil
iousness, promptly start the secretions ot the Uur,
and give a healthy tone to tbe entire system. It is
no ordinary discovery In medical science to Uavu
found a harmless cure for this stubborn complaint,
which accomplishes all tie results heretofore pro
duced by a free use of calomel, a mineral Justly
dreaded by mankind, and acknowledged to be de
structive In the extreme to the human Bjstcm. That
the properties of certain vegetables comprise all tho
virtues of calomel wltliout Its Injurious qualities, is
now an admitted fact, rendered Indisputable by sci
entific testa. Those who use the Mandrako Pills wlU
be fully satisfied that the best medicines aro those
provided by nature In the common roots and herbs
of the fields.
These pills open tho bowels and correct all bullous
derangements without salivation or any of the Inju
rious effects of calomel or other poisons. The secre
tion ot cile.ls regulated as will be seen by the altered
color of tho stools, the disappearance ot the sallow
completion and tbe cleansing of tbe tongue.
Ample directions for use accompany each box ot
pills Prepared only by J. II. fchenck t Bon, at
