TIIE DETECTIVE MUDDLE.
The Herring. Me9weeney Afenoy Prosont
a Stack of Affidavit.
In reply to the affidavits of Edward
Fulnwlder. setting forth, that he had
been Induced by Barring; and McSwee-
y to see Frank Shaffer, the negro tin
Jer arrest for blowing up the Hun
gartan shanty In the mountain cut-off.
and that he had nduced snarr er to ueny
his confession to Detective CTBrlen. the
Barring agency yesterday submitted a
bundle of affidavits to the contrary.
The first Is that of "Billy" Baur, a de-
tectlve on the Barrlng-McSweeney
force. He aays that McSweeney In
tructed iilm to go to Plttston and
bring Ed. Fulnwlder to Scranton for an
Interview. He found Fulnwlder, who
accompanied him to Soranton as per
request of Mr. McSweeney. Mr. Baur
wore that while In Fulnwlder's com
pany he (Baur) did not make any propo
Itlons to contradict any statements
made by him with regard to the crime
known as the mountain murder, and
did cot request Fullwider to go and
Interview Frank Shaffer. o Induce
them to contradict previous statements
made by them concerning this case
that the statement as made by Fuln
wider and charging deponent with hav
ing done this, are false in every "par
Hcular. The second affidavit Is that of George
M. Shoemaker, who swore that he was
present at the Interview between Da
niel McSweeney end Ed. Fulnwlder,
and took down In shorthand the state'
ment made by Fulnwlder to McSwee
ney. The statement made at that time
(January, 1S95) by Fulnwlder was to
the effect that the cut-off murder was
' committed by colored men named Scott
Jones, Oeorge Johnson and George
emu a. mat Jones nau toia mm (r uin
wider) that he had broken Into Sayer &
McDonald's tool chest and took some
dynamite and battery wires and used
them to blow up the Hungarian shanty
After doing so threw the battery into
the creek. Fulnwlder said Johnson and
Smith were at Hoosic Falls and that
h went In search of Scott Jones and
found him In Scranton, Pa., and
brought htm to Barring. & McSwee
tiey's office. Jones denied all knowledge
of the crime, whereupoi Fulnwlder ac
knowledged that he had been lying.
The last affidavit, a very lengthy one.
was that of Daniel 'McSweeney. of the
firm of Barring & McSweeney,. He sets
forth the Interview with Fulnwlder, as
given in Mr. Shoemaker's affidavit, and
further swears that the man Fulnwlder
is a notorious liar, and always had that
reputation among his own people, and.
after Jones denied the murder, Fuln
wlder admitted to the deponent that he
was lying when he accused William
Jones of the crime. Mr. McSweeney
aw Fulnwlder again on June 12. 1895,
and inquired if he had seen Frank
Bhaeffer. Fulnwlder said Shaeffer
came to him and said that he had had
trouble with Nelae Miller and was go
ing to tell something' about him. Shar
fer also said that he and James and
Melee Miller and George Jordan blew
tip the Hungarian shanty. McSweeney
conducted the balance of Fulnwlder's
examination aa follows:
. How did you know It was at that
A. Because he told me at that time
Q. Where has Shaffer been all this
A. He has lived near me at a Mrs.
Cobb's. lie Is a bad negro.
Q.Wbo did you Inform about it?
A. I told no one, but I advised Frank
Shaffer to give himself up, and tell the
officers about it and would go light with
Q. 8a you have told no one about this
matter until now?
A. No sir.
Q. Old you tell yonr wife?
A. No sir. .
Q. So you did not know how It was
learned that. Frank Shaffer would make
a statement? -
A. No. sir, I did not. - All I know about
ft is that the officers called at my house
last Monday in search of blm.
Q. Toil' made a statement to me last
January that you believed , John" Bird
knew nothing about It.
A. I believe that John Bird does not
know anything about It.
Q. Do you remember what you said to
me when I Interviewed you before?
A. Yes, sir. i
Q. Ton lied to me at that time, and you
admitted that you told me lies, -did you
A. Tes, sir.
Q. Did you tell me that William Scott
had told you that he had helped to blow
up the shanty?
A. Tes, sir.
Q. And you knew It was a lie, and you
cried about it?
A. Tes, sir. .
Q. And when you were brought face to
face with Scott you admitted that it was
A- Tes, sir. .
Mr. McSweney's affidavit closes with
a statement that he made no overtures
or offers of money to Fulnwlder fry the
purpose e.f retting- him to testify in
the case, but simply wanted to get at
the truth of the affair, if possible.
The arrested Polloeraen.
The Ave policemen. Ruddy, Gaynor,
Jones. Drake, Farrow and Blaine,
whom Burgess Fenner, of Ashley, ar
rested for stealing the prisoner, Sam
Lehman, Wednesday, had a hearing be
fore the burgess yesterday afternoon.
On one charge he fined them 15, from
which they appealed; on the other two
he fined them $2 and I2.2G respectively.
Their attorney wanted to go their se
curity for future payment, but Burgess
Fenner made them pay the $2.25, Bur
gess Fenner has created a new prece
dent lit- making information against
these men himself, and then trying his
own case. Ha was prosecutor, Judge
and Jury all In one.- - -
' f yv-The Williams Case. '
It is probable that the 'Williams case
will go to the jury today, as nearly all
the testimony Is now In. The defense
has made out a strong case. Only one
of their, witnesses yesterday "was Im
portant, that one being Samuel Lamer
eaux, He said he met Captain. Will
lams on his farm at 1 o'clock on the
day of the murder. Mr. Lainejeaux
said: "Whence came to me I saw that
the captain was cut and bleeding. His
hand was badly cut and there was
blood on Ills head and neck. He told
me of Chapman assaulting- him and he
said he was going to have him arrested.
I went with the captain to the 'squire
and came back with the constable. We
found Chapman setting beside the
fence. Ilia elbows were on his knees
and he was leaning u gainst the fence.
He was dead." :
