OXE ARREST HAS BEEX MADE
Grlshka, Who Hoarded with the Man Now
Iad. Had Blood on Ills Coat.
He Loved the Wlf. of
Theories of murder and accident are
puzzling County Detective lyshon and
Coroner Longstreet In the case of John
Mickus, a Polander, whose body was
found early yesterday morning lying
beneath the Delaware, Lackawanna
und Western tracks in a culvert near
the Tripp homestead. His hond had
been rrushed almost to a Jelly.
.'John Grlshka. who boarded with
Mickus. was arrested under peculiar
circumstances. , At the coroner's In
quest in the court house lust lilRht no
conclusive evidence to ntove the mur
der theory was adduced, although
Grlshka is critically Involved and will
be held until alter the ccntlnued In
quest at S o'clock Saturday ulnht.
Urlshku was urrested because of
the suspicion attached to the presence
of blood stains on his overcoat. lie had
stood among the crowd which surround
ed the bodv when the coronet' arrived.
The coroner noticed the soots on the
coat and crdc-red the arrest of Cirljhka
after he had failed to uatliitacionly ex
plain the etaiiu.'. '
The body or ,Mici:ua wus uiimitmu
ahout 6 o'llock In the morning lv uj
wurkmun who was v.alklny along tne
tracks. lie notttled the ilugniun at
the crossing, who, I" turn, nott
tled the police of the West Side
station house. Coroner Longs treet was
summoned, und when he reached tlie
seene. found a crowd of morbidly curi
ous persons surrounding the remains.
POSITION OF THK UODY.
The position of the body ludliuted
that human hands placed It where It
was found -that It could not have been
hurled there by a passing train. This
was tlie opinion tf the coroner und of
the police There was cause ateo for
the theory that murder 'was committed
mi the spot.
on the ivIiiinliiK wall w here the body
rested there were a few drops of blood.
The wall Is a part of a trestle over a
private roadway In the rear of the
Tripp homestead on North Main ave
nue. The body lu.v on Us buck near the
Mitith abutment mid almost beneath the i
i.utslili r'.lilHilind truck. The head
pointed no the mad. Evidence that the;
bodv hud nut fallen was offered In the
regular position of arms nml logs which
did not Indicate any violent action at ,
the llnie Mickus' form reached the HiHt.
The murder theories ure suggested by
the fact that the peculiar construction
of the culvert would render It almost
iiniMisslble for a man to be struck by
a train and his body Hung to the spot
where Mickus was found. Three tracks,
two of them for southbound und one for
northbound passenger trains only, cross
the culvert. The space between the
ties of each set of rails Is only two or
three inches wide, while there Is a
space of two feet or more between the
ends of the ties of the three tracks.
A southbound train could not have
thrown a body through tho two-foot
space and over to a point between the
northbound track, and a northbound
train certulnly would huve hurled it.
somewhere else than directly beneath
that track und against the south abut
ment. No trace of blood could be found
on the Iron, stone or woodwork of the
culvert, and It has not been learned
from uny fireman or engineer that a
man was run down during: the night.
HEAD rtADLY BATTERED.
The head was badly battered. The
forehead was crushed, tlie nose broken
and the teeth knocked out. No other
marks of violence,-excepting some con
tusions and scratches on the face and
hands, were discovered. His hat was
found near the body.
Mickus' watch chain was dangling
from his vest: the watch could not be
found. A pocketbook on his person
contained threo pennies.
Any footprints that might have
thrown some light on the matter were
almost obliterated by the crowd be
fore the coroner and the police reached
the scene, although there were tracks
indicating that one or two men had
walked down the embankment from the
railroad, and had then walked back
While the coroner was surveying the
body and scrutinizing the locality, his
notice was attracted by Otishka, the
man held on suspicion. Dark colored
spots were plainly visible on the lapel
and skirt of his overcoat. He told the
coroner he was a friend of Mickus and
had seen him at supper on the preced
ing evening. He evaded questioning
and appeared confused. There was lit
tle doubt t hut the spots were-made by
blood and Coroner Longstreet ordered
Patrolman Evans to arrest the man.
He tried to wash the stains off with
snow while being led to the West srnle
station house, but was prevented do
ing so by the patroltnnn.
The coronet' Impanelled a Jury and
ordered the body removed to the
morgue of I'ndertnker Price, where the
coroner and Or. Penny-packer mudo a
jost-tiioi lein examination at ft o'clock In
tin- afternoon. Meunwlille County De

Some sensational facts which will
prove serluiis evidence In connecting

the three on account of the boarder's
attention to Mrs. Mickus. Their rela

AHOL'T HELL'S DEATH.
Ur. Slcklcr of .Icrmyn, Writes It Was
Any doubt as to tlie cuuse of death of
aged John Hell in Jermyn recently Is
set aside by a letter from Dr. J. U. Slck
ler, of that place, to Coroner Longstreet.
The letter was received yesterday.
Coroner Longstreet on Monday re
ceived un anonymous letter hinting that
Hell's death was the result of foul play.
Dr. Sickler wrote that hr had never
seen anything susnicious connected
with (he death of Hell, who died on the
morning of the I4tlt, except the fact
that there was some insurance (not a
large amount) curried on him by his
laughter with whom he lived. Dr.
Sickler had been acquainted with them
for sometime and thought the letter
received by the coroner was actuated
by spite. Dr. Sickler was called last
summer to attend the old man by the
same family when he fell part way
down stairs. He believes his death was

TEMPERANC E HALL ETRNED.
Was Owned b St. Joseph's Father
.Muthcw Society of Minooka.
Between 2 and 3 o'clock yesterday
morning tire broke out in the hall of St.
Joseph's Total Abstinence and Benevo
lent society of Minooka, and it was
burned to the trround in less than an
hour. No one has any conception of
how the fire originated, Inasmuch as It
started in the rear of the hall, away
from tho stove altogether.
The banquet ami entertainment of
Division . Ancient Order of Hibernians
of America, was held St. Patrick's
night, but everybody had gone home
about midnight, and the hall was locked
by the Janitor two hours before the
Humes were noticed. There arc mi fire
companies In Minooka. and there were
bill few persons around while the fire
wus in progress: but a half dozen men
organized a bucket hildijade and as
sisted In preventing the spread of the
Haines to adjoining buildings.
The hooks, iiaocrs and effects of St.
Joseph's society were destroyed, us well
ns a piano owned by llcv. John Lough
ran, which was used In choir practice.
The society carried M.HOO Insurance
and that will fully protect them. I'n
d. 'I taker T. F. McOonough. or Plttston
avenue and Fig street, had '.'ml chairs
In use at the banquet, which hud not
been removed, and these were de
stroyed. The tables were built of hem
lock boards for the occasion, and there
l'oie do not entail much loss. The ban
ner of '.he one let. v was in the hull und
it was consumed.
The building wits orlgr.ially used an a
grocery store many years ago, and later
as a school. For upwards of lifteen
years It had been i lit property of St.
Joseph's society. Ttn years a?o at an
enttrtalninent one nlf.ht when SOD peo
