MURDER OF APFLEQATE.
A New Jcisey "Wife Boater Found
Send In a Pool of Blood,
lly i;clulie Vtlr liom The Associated l're.
Trenton, X. J., March 10. Thomas
Applegate, a farmer living; at Kxtun
vlllo, ten miles from here, was found
dead In his barn this morning with his
head crushed in. Owing to threats
that had been made by White; Caps to
punish Applegato for Ill-treating hi
family, It xvas first thought he hail
been murdered. A thorough Investi
gation ax as made by Coroner IJower
and County Physician linger. Uoth
are satisfied that Applegate was Kicked
to death by a horse. Coroner Hower
said tonight that Applogalo's body was
found In n stall and that the m.nks on
his face showeil the marks of the
horse's shoe, lllood was also found on
the horse's hoof.
Applegate had boon ill Inking a great
deal or late, nnil Is believed to have
been ill unk at the time he was killed.
He was at one time a prominent citi
zen in his locality and much respected.
Of late when drinking he had been
abusing his wife. A party ot neigh
bors, wearing masks, went to Apple
gate's homo some months ago and
threatened to punish hliu If he did not
Heat his family differently. This had
no effect, and Applegate home time
later was toughly handled and was
thrown In Crosswlck's creek. Apple
gate, In talks he had with friends, pro
fessed the belief that he would be
killed, nnd that had much to do with
the suspicion that his death resulted
from foul play.
