LANCASTER DAILY INTELLIGENCER, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 25,1880.
A Negro Snoots Bit Wife and Ben.
Yesterday about neon a negre barber
namedJehn "Wallage, residing and doing
business in Mount Jey, quarreled with his
wife, and taking up a gun -which he had
leaded heavily with shot a short time be
fore, aimed it at her and discharged it as
she was in the act of running out of the
front deer of her house. The shot took
effect just above the left hip, passed
through her body and came out te the left
of the navel, tearing away the flesh and
making a hole large enough te thrust a
man's finger through. One of Wallage's
sons was in front of his mother at ths time
and received several shot in the head but
was net dangerously injurcd.Mrs. Wallage's
cry of " murder," and the report of the
gun, seen brought a number of persons te
the scene and Wallage was taken into cus
tody. He claims that the discharge of the
gun was accidental, but his wife says it
was intentional and that he has frequently
before threatened her life, he being of a
very jealous disposition. Seme of Wal
lage's friends think that he was net alto
gether responsible for his act, as he has
been seriously ill recently, having been
confined te his bed for several weeks with
a nervous affection.
Dr. Harry, of Mount Jey, who was
called in te attend Mrs. "Wallage, says her
condition is critical, as her spine and ribs
are injured and that the flesh wounds arc
dangerously close te the vital organs.
Wallage was taken in charge by a Mount
Jey officer, who ironed him and brought
him te the county prison, te await the re
sult of Mrs. Wallage's injuries.
Wallage is well known in this city, hav
ing carried en harboring a year or two
age in the basement of the Schiller house,
North Queen street, and also opposite the
Farmers' Northern market. He is a rather
powerfully built man, of rather pleasing
address, but is said by these who knew
him te be a presumptuous and " mean
nigger," who always avoided paying his
debts. He owns a small property in
Mount Jey, which was recently seized by
the sheriff and is te be offered at sheriffs
r.ale en the 0th of March.
Anether Account of It.
Kpt'dlll tO tllC ISTKLLIOK.NCKK.
Mount Jey, Pa., Feb. 25. Jehn Wol Wel
lege is a colored barber who has resided
here some years. Fer some time past he
had a shop under the Schiller house, Lan
caster, but lately reopened in Mount Jey
his family living here all the time. He
has been dyspeptic, and is far gene with
consumption ; he is much debilitated, and
much of his time he has been confined te
the house and te bed. He was sitting up
yesterday, and about 1 o'clock sent one of
his sons upstairs te get the gun which he
wanted te "fix." While fixing it his
wife desired him te put it away,
thiuking it dangerous. Wellege leplied
that whether leaded or net, there was no
danger as he had the rock oil". He greased
it, replaced the cock, and the weapon was
discharged accidentally as Wellege states.
At the moment of the discharge Mrs. Wol Wel
lege had partly turned te enter an ad
joining room. The charge entered the
abdomen below the stomach en the
left side but towards the front and
ciine out en the left side of the back
bone, and her clothing was set en fire by
the discharge. Part of the charge wound
ed his eldest son, Ellswerth Wellege, aged
about 15 years, who was standing near his
mother at the time. The gun was charged
with shot and the boy wounded in the
llachael Miller is Wellege"s mother-in-law
and an inmate of his family. On her
complaint, charging Wellege with assault
and battery with intent te murder, he was
committed te prison this morning.
The wife's name was Adaline
Wellege. The mother-in-law and
wife believe the sheeting was pre
meditated. He was jealous of her at times
and threatened her life en two occasions.
Besides being sick, Wellege has been
much depressed in spirits, his property
having been seized by the sheriff. The
theory has been advanced that he intended
te murder his family and commit suicide,
because at the time of the sheeting there was
a razor within his reach. It is also stated
that the gun was an old one and had net
been used for some time ; that somebody
had been prowling about Wellege's prem
ises at night te steal chickens, as he sup
posed ; that he only leaded the gun day
before yesterday se as te be ready for the
chicken thief, and after having leaded it
thought it needed fixing and greasing.
Mrs. Wellege is still living ; her condition
is considered dangerous. The son's wound
bled profusely, but is net considered dan
gerous. Velng a Revolver en a Runaway.
On Sunday while a gang of laborers
were working in the tunnel being
excavated by the Pennsylvania rail
road near the Gap, a man named
Knox, it is alleged, badly beat a balky
mule he was driving. Officer Brady of the
railroad police was sent for te arrest
Knox, and arrived at the tunnel en Mon
day morning about 9 o'clock. When Knox
saw him coming he took te his heels and
ran, and Brady fired two shots after him,
but did net succeed in bringing him te a
halt. A witness te the affair states that
Brady had no warrant for Knox's arrest,
or at least did net show it or read it te him
and his firing en the man is regarded as a
high handed outrage.

"Aunt Sallie," one of the eldest persons
in this city, died yesterday at the resi
dence of Mr. J. L. Hoffmeier, Ne. 304
East Orange street, and will be buried
from there en Friday next at 2 p. m. She
was a useful, Christian woman who accom

resided with Mrs. Bemberger and Mr. J.
L. Hoffmeier ever since, being in her 91st
year when she died.

Death or Allen Heyt.

resident in Columbia, died at the residence
of his father in that borough last evening
after a painful illness, from typhoid fever.
Itluine and Bayard te the Frent.
As a fair and expeditious means of catch
ing the drift of public sentiment, in this
vicinity, en the presidential question, a
reporter of the Intelligencer took a
stroll up North Queen street from Centre
Square te the Pennsylvania railroad depot,
and interviewed all the voters he met as te
their first choice for president of the
United States. Of 227 voters interviewed
121 were Democrats and 10G Republicans.
The Democratic preferences were as fol fel
lows : Bayard, 4:5 ; McClcllan, 23 ; Sey
mour, 21 ; Tildcn, 20 ; Turn-man, 3 ; Han
cock, 2 ; Joel Parker, 2 ; Hendricks, 1 ;
The Republican preferences were :
Blaine, 80; Grant, 13; Washburn, 1;
"Anybody te beat Grant, " 2 ; undecided,
It will be noticed that the Democratic
vote is much divided, and that "the
field" has mere than twice as many friends
as the favorite. Among Republicans, en
the ether hand, Blaine, the favorite, can
double-discount all competitors and have
votes enough left te win.
It is but fair te state that the reporter
did net pretend te make a canvass of the
voters residing en North Queen street, be
tween Centre square and the depot ; but
that the above were merely "caught en
the flv " during a brief walk.
DUKG LARS AT El'URATA.
Ueuslilerable Damage Dene te a Mere.
Last night a gang of burglars attempted
te get into the dry goods and grocery
store of Jehn Scldemridge, which is
situated near the depot in Ephrata. They
broke a large plate glass in the front of
the building which was valued at $73
They also broke eleven smaller panes of
glass in different parts of the building.
Mrs. Scldemridge was awakened by the
noise : she gave the alarm and a clerk,
who is employed in the building, imme
diately went down stairs when the bur
glars fled, before they had secured any
thing. The men who committed the out
rage are supposed te be four tramps, who
were in the village yesterday but could
net be found this morning.
The same gang it is believed, then went
te the United Brethren's church, and
bombarded the windows with stones,
hi caking about fifteen large panes of glass.
The sexton, whose residence adjoins the
church, hearing the noise, get up and raug
the church bell, whereupon the ruffians
dispersed. Efferts arc making te discover
and punish them for their outrages.
An Old Employee et the Company Killed.
James Martin, of Columbia, who is em
ployed by the Pennsylvania railroad com
pany as shifter at that point, was last
evening crushed te death between two
trains' while in the discharge of his duty.
It appears that Mr. Martin was shifting
one of the trains, te which he had his
mules attached and which were driven by
his son, and he for the purpose of giving
directions took a position between the two
trains, thinking there was sufficient room,
but being only six inches space between
the trains, he was wedged between them
and almost instantly killed. Mr. Martin
was about forty-eight years of age and has
been in the employ of the company for
about twenty years. lie leaves a wife and
Deputy Corener Frank held an inquest
en the body, the verdict of the jury being
in accordance with the above facts.

nut streets, and some persons who wit
nessed the accident say the wagon passed
ever him. His head and face were badly
cut and bruised and he suffered severe in
ternal injury. He was carried into Dr. A.

kenzie said he had observed in telegraphic
despatches that an amendment had been

relief of the Irish peer, stipulating that
every person receiving such relief should
be disfranchised. He desired that no con
tribution from Canada should be used te
disfranchise any one in Ireland.
Sir Jehn MacDonald said this law was
part of England's peer law, but he would
see that representations were made te the
effect that Canadian funds should net be
applied te disfranchising any Irish voter.

Marrying Under Diflcultles.
Ou Thursday morning a week, at Fish
erville, in Augusta county, Virginia, at the
early hour of 2 o'clock, a young man, Mr.
H. C. Miles, and a young lady, Miss Addie
L. Wagner, bearded the express train for
West Virginia for the purpose of getting
married. On Thursday morning they ar
rived at Lewisburg, where they expected
te be married, but were disappointed. The
Lewisburg Criterion describes the pros
pective groom as " an embryo meustached
youth," and the bride as "a tall and
rather geed-looking semi-blonde." The
Criterion says :
" The young lady herself related her ad
ventures with great gusto te an admiring
group who surrounded her at the Lewis
burg hotel hew she left while her mother
was visiting and her father at the wood
pile, hew she spent a day in an old barn
waiting for her lever, hew they get lest in
the weeds while they were stealing their
way te Fishersville, en the B. & O. R. W.,
and after wandering about all night
were thrown into consternation en
finding themselves, in the morning,
only a few hundred yards from
her father's house. Having finish
ed her eloquent recital she announced her
intention te array herself immediately in
immaculate white for the nuptials that
were new at last te be consummated. The
yeun" gentleman engaged the services of
Mr. Wilhelm, and new nothing remained
but te get the license. He moved in confi
dence en the clerk's office. But alas ! Mr.
Spotts, the inexorable, refused the license.
The bridal dress had te be doffed. But the
spirit of the fair wearer was net crushed.
She declared that she had tried three
times te get married before, and that she
was going te be married this time if she
had te go te the end of the world. When
she announced her plans, the young man
gracefully acquiesced. That evening they
left accompanied by Lije Themas, and,
under his skillful leadership, have doubt
less ere this been victorious. "
