HIS NAME WAS EHD.
A Peculiar Incident in the Selection
of a Juror Yesterday.
SECOND TBIAL OF JOSEPH DIHMEr.
" His Life in Jeopardy for the Murder of Po
A BIG COAL PDECDASE IS OUTLINED.
5 General Kews cf the State and Connty
For ttie superstitious there is food for
thought in the opening of Joseph Dinimcy's
trial yesterday lor the murder of Policeman
2Iiller. It ras a curious incident in rela
tion to the selection of a juror, which is told
below. The Umberger murder case from
Somerset ras considered by the Supreme
Joseph Dimmey, a colored hack driver,
ras put on trial in the Criminal Court yes
terday, for the murder of Special Officer
"William Miller, of Allegheny, on the morn
ing of September 4, 1SSS. This is the second
trial of the case. Dimmey was convicted of
murder in the first degree last sprln p, hut it was
proven that some of the jurors in the case were
allowed to take whisky with their meals during
the progress of the trial, and a new trial was
asked for and granted.
Yesterday the case was begun for the second
time. The work of selecting a jnry filled in tne
day until 3 o'clock, when John Kr.d, a mill
worker of the Twenty-fourth ward, was ac
cepted as the twelfth man. An odd circum
stance appears in tbe selection of this juror.
He was the first man called in the
morning, and after answering the usual
questions as to scruples against
capital punishment and whether or not be had
formed an opinion as to the prisoner's guilt or
Innocence, he was stood aside while others were
called and chosen. Of the entire panel called,
19 were challenged by the defense and 2 by
the prosecution. After exhausting the panel.
End was again called and accepted as the
twelfth and last mm. The fact that he was
called first and last, and that he bears the
name he does, was commented upon as being
peculiar l)v many interested in the case.
Jndge White was on the bench. The Com
monwealth was represented by District At
torney W. D. Porter and John S. Robb, while
the defendant was represented by Thomas M.
Marshall. Sr Thomas M. Marshall, Jr., and
William Bcardon. The jnry as finally made up
is as follow:
Arthur Chlslett. clerk, Seventeenth ward; David
Elpbinstone. bookkeeper. Fifth ward, Allegheny;
August 51eo!iI, tinner, LowerSt. Clair township;
.Morris W. Mead, electrician. Fourteenth ward:
Samuel Crawford, merchant, Nineteenth ward:
l'eter Hill farmer, Indiana township: W. W.
bawhill druggUt, Thlrty-eecond ward; A. C
Montgomery, tobacconist. Twentieth ward. F. B.
hmltn, manufacturer. Fifth ward, Alleghcnr;
Thomas bcanlon, djer. First ward. Allegheny:
Join U. Smith, clerk. Jjcventeenth ward, and
John End, mill hand. Twenty-fourth ward.
District Attornev Porter opened the case and
denned the law relating to homicide, and the
different verdicts that could be brougbt lor
first or second degree, or manslaughter if tbe
evidence warranted it, and if not a verdict of
not guilty would be expected. He reviewed
the circumstances of the murder and told of
how, on the morning nf September 4 of last
year, about 1 o'clock; Special Officer Miller, of
Aiieueu, uau. lu ujc vii:iuuy oi his Deac,
seen the prisoner and another man quarreling.
In attempting to stop the fight one of the men
shot him and ran. A Pittsburg officer who had
been doing duty heard the shot, and, seeing a
man run away, gave chase, the fugitive turn
ing and shooting at him twice. The pursued
ran through tbe park, and was caught on
"Western avenue, and proved to be tbe prisoner
The first witness called was Mrs. Annie Mil
ler, widow of Officer Miller. She told
of how her husband had left home
about 7 o'clock on the evening before his
death and of bis singing a song as he went out
the door. She next saw bim dead about 5
o'clock in the afternoon of the 5th, when be
was taken to their home on Perrysville avenue.
She said he was 42 jcarsot age and had been
an officer for three years. When she was
shown her dead husband's clothes to identify
them, she completely broke down and wept
pltitully. She was led from the stand by a
young lady attendant.
Officer David Spcer, of Allegheny; was next
c&l'ed. He said he was on a street car going
borne when he heard a pistol shot, and met
Dimmey coming out thiongh the park to
Western avenge. He ran forward to arrest
him, when the prisoner said: "D you. Til
let you have one, too." Ho took the pistol
from bim, which was pressed close to tbe wit
ness' stomach. Officer Fitzgerald, of Pitts
burg, came up and another man whom he
knew as Wiggins. Dimmey wis taken to the
patrol box on Irwin avenue and sent to the
lockup, and the witness went to the hospital
with tbe wounded man. whom they found
on Irwin avenue near where he was shot.
Miller said to the witness: "I'm shot and done
for, God have mercy on my sSul."
THE CaiBERKER MTJKDEE.
ItCTiew of ibo Celebrated Cnsc Before tbe
In the Supreme Court yesterday the argu
ment list for Armstrong, Cambria, Lawrence,
Somerset and Mercer counties was next taken
np, and will occupy all of this week.
The first case argued was tho appeal of Joseph
Nicely and David nicely from the decision of
the Court of Oyer and Terminer of Somerset
county. The two Nicelys were tried, convicted
and sentenced to be banged for the
murder of Herman Umberger, on Feb
ruary 27, 1SS9. Umberger was a farmer
in Jenner township, Somerset county.
On tbe day in question two men with hand
kerchiefs around their heads and faces went to
Umbenrer's bouse and represented that thev
were officers with a warrant to search his house
for stolen jewelry. They started to make the
search, and Umberger removed some money
from a drawer and put it in bis pocket. His
money or his life was then demanded. The re
sult was Umberger was shot dead and his pock
ets rifled. The two Nicely brothers, married
men, living in Westmoreland county, were ar
rested and identified by the Umberger lamily
by their voices and clothes as the murderers.
Their appeal is based on errors of the Court in
rulings and the admission of evidence.
to rcncuAsE coal land.
Why Thnt Privilege Uns to bo Applied for
An argument was beard by Judge Hawkins
in the Orphans' Court yesterday on tbe petition
of the estate of James H. Hays, for leave to
purchase some coal land. The estate in ques
tion is mostly composed of coal interests. To
work the coal property in Mifflin township suc
cessfully the truteo states it is necessary to
purchase 93 acres of coal land adjoining. In
consequence he asked permissiou from the
court to hid for it at the proposed sale at a
price not to exceed 6300 per acre.
Two of the heirs of the estate, McClnrg Hays
and Mrs. Davis filed objections to tbe purchase.
They held that it was not necessary to purchase
the additional land for tne working of their
mines, and that tbey desired a distribution
among the heirs of the income of the estate in
stead of making additional investments with it
Tbe other heirs of tbe estate bad asrreed to tile
purchase. Attorney Lazear appeared in court
for Mr. Bookman, tbe trustee, and Messrs.
Brown and Cook for tbe objecting heirs. Tho
case, at tbe adjournment of court, was con
tinued for ten days.

TenYears of Intense Suffering
Mr. Frank Bordar, a well-known gentleman,
suffered for ten years from kidney disease.
After receiving two months' treatment from
the physicians of tbePolypathic Medical Insti
tute, he gave the following interesting history,
with permission to publish it. He said: "I had
much pain across my back and lower part of
my body. My hands and feet would of ten get
cold, and sharp cramps would often seize me.
My heart would at timespalpltate as if it would
jump out of my body. Hot flashes would often
come over me. I was always tired on getting
up in the Inoming. Tbe disease finally ex
tended to my lungs, causing much pain and
tightness in my chest In vain I tried to find
some doctor who could cure me, but could only
get a little relief, and so I suffered on in this
way for ten years. I finally read in the papers
of wonderful cures being made by the phy
sicians of tbe Polypathia Institute, and as I
read that they mado a specialty ot my disease,
1 began treatment, and I am glad to state that
I have been cured."
