MYSTERY OF THE CRIME
Examination of the Body Proves
That He Had Been Killed by Two
Shots from a 32-Calibre Revolver.
A Pawn Ticket Pound In His
Pocket May Reveal the Man's
Kpcchl to the Scranton Tribune.
Mnghanitnn, X. Y., Juno US. A luko
sailor, believed to bo Tlmoth)1 McCar
thy, wits murdered lust hIkIU In this
e'ty and his body was found In a Lack
awanna freight oar this moiiiliiyr. A
veil of mystery hangs about the mur
der, but there are clews which may
lend tn the discovery of the perpetra
tors of the crime, though at present
II spoiiis doubtful.
About U o'clock this morning a
switching crew employed In the yards
if the Lackawanna went to the cast
end Hwltch to pick up a freight car
which was near the factory of Cran
diil. Stone & Co. Karly this morning
it had been taken from the Syracuse
tracks In the vicinity of the Stlckley
Rrandt chair factory and kicked up to
the main lino switch. When the yard
crew wont after the car one of the
men looked Inside and there he saw in
a heap In Hip corner the body of a
in. in. Kxamlnatlon showed that ho
had been killed by two shots from a 32
lallher revolver Hied into his left side
near the heart. The bullets either
passed through the heart or severed
the main artery.
The car was brought down to Lib
erty street and Coroner Smith and
Chief Moore were called. They exam
ined the body and car and found a
black slouch hat and a small blue cap,
which was of a boy's size. The re
mains were removed to Strait's under
taking rooms, and there a more thor
ough examination was made. The
man was attired in a pair of sailor's
tiotiscrs, brown coat and vest. The
body was piofiisely tattooed and upon
th" breast was the French motto,
"iJleu et limit droit."
In his pocket was found a seaman's
disability certificate signed by William
tirlflln, master of the port of Kuffalo.
The certilicate was made out in the
name of Timothy McCarthy, and It
uus stated that he was 2S years old,
had ilaik hair, blue eyes, was 3 feet, G
inches in height, and was tattooed on
the wrists. The certificate was dated
May .0 last and showed that the bear
er had been employed as a wheelman
on the Monteagle of Oswego. It was
also stated that Timothy McCarthy
had been in the I'nlted States service
twenty years. The description on this
paper corresponds somewhat with the
description of the murdered man,
though it might have been more ex
plicit. Hesides the certilicate. there were
found tea cents in money, an outfit
for tatooing, razor, a copy of the
Leader of last Wednesday, a copy of
yesterdays' SeranJon Tribune, a bit of
looking-glass, a mutch safe, tobacco
and a handkerchief, as well as a pawn
ticket that may assist In establishing
the man':! Identity. The pawn ticket
was given by Frank X. Forsler, Hi
Kast Sonaca street, ISull'iilo, last Tues
day, and showed thai the bearer had
received ?: for a suit of light clothes.
The pawn ticket was number ,'i'..

A Probable Quarrel.
It is considered a probable theory
that the partner did show up at tho
box car In which tho two were stay
ing late in the evening, ami then a
quarrel ensued, In which McCarthy,
if that Is his name, was shot. As the
car was on the Syracuse tracks until
this morning, it Is probable that the
.shooting occurred in that vicinity,
Last night when tho searchers were
near the factory of Crandal, Stone it
Co., looking for the body of James
Morlailty, a sailor entno along and
remained there for some time, lie
told those present, iibuut being en
gaged on the lakes, and gave pointers
as to hifw to search for tho body.
Detective Stephenson saw him there,
This morning about ".so o'clck l'o
llcenian ilanloy was coming from his
home with his wife, and at the cor
ner of Chenango and Munsell streets
H. man accosted them, asking tho offi
cer the time of duy and the name of
the street. Ills description tallies al
most exactly with that of tho sailor
on the river bank last night. Pollen
man Hanley was attracted to the man
by his peculiar actions. He hud In his
hand a copy of the morning paper,
which he had probably stolen from
home porch, and It'ls a theory that
this was McCarthy's partner; that he
had shot him while the car was on
the tracks in that vicinity, and had
como out on Chenango street to avoid
being seen. Policeman Hanley was in
his citizen's clothes and accordingly
did not strike the man as being an
ottlcer. lie had picked up tho morn
ing paper, probably, to learn if the
murder had been discovered. This
man was short In build, wore a soft
uit and a small badge upon his vest,
mil his face was covered with a
neck's growth of beard.

smaller scale It resembled the tornado
which swept over and destroyed the
greater portion of New Hlchmond two
years ago. Over a dozen farmers have
already reported the loss of a part or
all their buildings, windmills, live stock,
machinery, etc., and the loss there will
be heavy. In some cases the buildings
weie crushed down and in otheis swept
away by the wind, while Hood damage
was reported elsewhere. Kaln fall of
nearly four inches is reported there.
A tornado Is also reported to' have
caused much loss about Star Prairie,
some distance to the north of New
Hlchmond. Hector, Minn., reports all
crops destroyed, six miles north of
there, by a destructive hailstorm. Hlrd
Island and Montevideo, Minn., both
sutfered considerably. In these two
cities the storm was very threatening,
but only minor damage was done.

"It will bo seen that aside from the
qualified reassertion of their plea of

"The more I regard thoin the weak

"Certainly It Is true that the acts
of congress do not provide for the dis
barment of an attorney who commits
a. crime; no more do they provide
that a minister of the gospel shall bo
stripped of his cloth or that a great
moral or social leader under like cir

This Is a matter solely for the courts
