Ligosiee, February 28. The entire
county is in a fever of excitement and rage
over the news of one of the most cold-blooded
murders ever committed in this county. The
scene of the crime is a prosperous farm on
the pike about ten miles east of here, near
Jennerstown, Somerset county. About 7
o'clock last night, while Her&an TJmberger
and his wife were seated cozily before their
dining room fire they were aroused by a
knock at the door.
Mr. TJmberger hastened to respond, and,
upon opening the door, was confronted by
two masked men, who Informed ilm that they
were officers. They said they had a warrant to
make an investigation of his premises for jewel
ry that had been stolen from a peddler in that
neighborhood some time ago. The; also showed
papers upon which were names of a number of
farmers in the vicinity, which, they claimed,
they had searched.
"After considerable deliberation JMx. TJm
berger finally consented to permit the search.
After several articles had been searched, he
opened a drawer in which lay a pocket book
containing $13,000. He informed his visitors
cthat the book contained nothing bat valuable
papers, and placed it in his pocket. They re
plied they were not after his money, but
were simnly doing their dnty as officers of the
law. The old lady who was with them up to
this time went back to the kitchen. She had
scarce v reached there when she was startled
by heafingthemurderonsexclamation. "Money
or your life ! " She hurried toward the room,
but before she reached there a terrible death
stnijrjrle was on.
Several shots were fired and she rushed to
the farm bell, and commenced to ring it vio
lently. SbeTetarned to the house and the
scume was still coins on. A moment later she
heard five shots fired and then all was still.
She went into the house and found the old man
lying dead upon the floor. Two of the shots
took effect in his body, one passing through his
heart, the other making a flesh wound in his
side. Death had resulted instantaneously. The
villains alter securing the pocketbook contain
ing the 13.000, fled into the darkness and made
They were tracked in the direction of the
mountains, when the trail was lost. The mur
derers are described as one toeing tall, wearing
a derby hat, the other being short and heavy
set, wearing a slouch hat. The murdered man
wss about 70 years of age, and lived all alone
with his aged wife. He had been an invalid
for several years, and the only reason that can
be assigned for the killing is that he recognized
His wife was the only eye-witness to the cold
blooded deed, bntshe was too feeble to aid her
husband. Parties are out sconringthe country,
and will shoot down the murderers if caught.
The whole country is greatly excited over the
terrible affair. A reward of 1,500 has been
offered for the arrest of the fiends.

Ytro-GSTOWN, February 2S. A lovely fight
has developed herb between the Republicans
and Democrats, growing out of the proposed
extension of the city limits, which may make
the municipal election in April an interesting
contest. At the instance of many citizens a
committee was appointed by the Council to
have a map prepared showing the territory
which it was desired to annex. This includes
the populous suburbs of Brier Hill and Hazel

annexation project is a Democratic scheme to
change the political complexion of the city and
make it Democratic. This is denied by the
Democrats, who, npon the returns at the elec
tion last fall, show that the Republicans had a
majority, and by the annexing of the proposed
Territory would stUI have a majority of nearly
400. Unless there is an entire withdrawal of
pvty spirit it is probable the extension scheme
will be defeated.
