ASSASSINATION OF lOLICEMAX YOST
Shocking Details of Crime
THE SECRET ORDER OF HIBERNIANS
Effects of Ardent Snirits
Betiilehex, April 5. James Kerrigan,
now under sentenee for complicity in the
munler of Policeman Yost, at Tatnaqua,
hist year, has in idea voluntary confession,
which accords entirely with the sworn
evidcticc iu the case.
Some years ago Alexander Campbell kept
the same saloon that is now kept by James
Carroll, in Tumaquj. In that house, when
Campbell kept it, I first joined a society
known as the
ANCIENT ORDER. OF HIBERNIANS.
That is the order of the Molly Maguires,
aud uuchiug else. I was introduced into
it by a man at Tuscarora, and a man named
John Donahue put me through iu Akxn
der Campbell's cellar. The first taste of
my new order was when one Barney
O'llare Was burned out. The uien who
did that were sent out by Alexander
Campbell, who was paid for sending them
by a m.m named SLtterliug. 1 know he
did send them, fur I Was iu Campbell's
place when they went, and the next uiornitig
t!ie j lace w.is burned down. The pur
poses of the Mclly Maguires, A. O. II., is
And burn down dwellings. The notion is,
that it is to protect workiugnicii, !ut really
they are all of the most hardened villains
iu tlie place where they retde. If any one
wants any work doue they inform the head
man, known as
Or president, aud he calls a meeting : two
or three men are usually apjMjinted to do
such work. Most of the bodymasters are
hotel-keejers. Jeremiah Kane was body
master at Broad Top. When Jones was
killed James Cor roll was body master at Ta
maqua. Alexuder Campbell, while he lived
at Tamaqua, was the body master Boyle,
Dully and McGeehan, now awaiting trial
in the jail at IVfsville, are the men who,
on the ni,;ht of July 5, at James Carroll's
saloon, iu Tamaquj, announced that night
OFFICER YOST MUST EE KILLED.
He was put out of the way because he
had interfered with and beaten some
drunken Molly Maguires. Carroll went
out of the saloon to borrow a pistol to do
the kiihng, but came back without any.
He then gave me twenty-five cents, and
asked me to go to a neighboring saloon
aud borrow one. I went out and sj.ent the
uione-, but returned without a pistol, lie
was kided that night. A l three, Doyle,
Duffy and McGeehan, subsequently con
fessed to me that
THEY HAD MURDERED YOST.
These men arc all members of the Ancient
Order of Hibernians, of Molly Maguires.
I kn;w John F. Jones. I knew all about
his death. I did not know Doyle and
Kelly before September 1, 1S75. I was
coming from my work at Alaska collieries,
at Tamaqua, on September 1,1 S75, and
stopped iu at James G t mill's. 1) yle aud
Kelly were there. After I had taken a
drink I went out on the porch, and James
Carroll followed me. When we rot oat
side he asked me if would take D.yleand
Kelly over to Alexander Campbell's, at
Storm Hill, as they wished to go there. I
said that I was steadily at work and would
have to be out by eleven o'clock. Carroll
then prevailed ujn me to go. I got my
snj per and came back to Carroll's saloon.
Wc pushed ri:ht on to Storm Hill and
went in at Alexander Campbell's, wh 're
Carroll had told me to take the men. We
th n went to Ilii.di McGcehan's saloon at
Summit Hill. McGeehan produced
After oiling them he handed one to
Doyle, one to Kelly aud one to me, and
asked me to go aud
SHOOT JOHN T. JONES.
I refused the revolver. Kelly and I
remained in that saloon all night, McGee
han and Campbell bo'.h returning home.
Before the latter left an arrangement was
made whereby I should go down the next
morning aud point out to Kelly and Doyle
the boss, Jones, whom 1 knew, having once
lived at Tamaqua. This was to be done so
that no mistake might be made, s that
they tliou'd know Jones beyond all doubt.
The men McGeehan aud Campbell said
that John F. Jones had
(That is, discharged and reported no they
could not get work at any of the company's
mines)soine of the men that worked iu that
region. Campbell left me to infer that
Jones was mainly to be murdered so as to
get William Zehner to run away. He said
that if John F. Jones was shot Bill Zehner
would certainly run away. In the morn
ing DoIe, Kelly and I left the saloon about
eight o'clock in search of Jones. Campbell
said they should shoot Jones at his house
or in coming from the post office. Then
Kelly and Doyle went up to Jooes bouse.
COUNTY, PA., APRIL 13.
While they were away Campbell made me
DOWN OX MY KNEES
And protn-so that I would never speak
about this murder, drunk or sober. Then
Campbell told nie to go out and see where
they were. I went up after them and met
them this side of Mickey O'Donnel's tavern.
Doyle was sitting on a stone. Kelly said
that when he srent down he went "into a
house and asked if Jones was at home, and
that no one answed. Campbell told Kelly
to shoot Jones early in the morning while
coming to work, and not to let him o with
one ball, hut put three or four in him.
Mjehael Doyle had the blackjack and black
pistol. Kelly had the other two pistols.
Campbell told them they could go on, that
they needn't be afraid, as no one would
follow them, as Jones wasn't liked by the
Welshmen or any one else. Campbell then
gave me Gve dollars, telling me to purchase
some whisky at Tnmnqun, and use the bal
ance to buy them tickets on the railroad to
ro home with. These five dollars I -rave
my old woman, and she sent out fir a qu irt
of whisky, but the bill came back un
changed and the whisky with it. At Ta
maqua Doyle informed me that
THEY HAD SHOT JONES.
But couldn't siy whether he was dead or
not. Shortly after that we were arrested.
An Important New L-iw.
An act intended to enable assignees, for
the benefit of creditors, to m ike sttles of
real estate encumbered by liens, has passed
the Legislature and received the G vernnr's
approval. Its provisions are as follows:
Section 1. That in all assignments for
the benefit of creditors, it shall, and may
le lawful for the several Courts of Common
Fleas of this Commonwealth, upon applica
tion of the assign es of insolvent debtor,
setting forth that the personal estate is in
sufficient for the payment of debts, and the
real estate encumbered with liens to such
an extent as to render it difficult to deter
mine whether the same can be sold for en
ough to pay for all the liens as aforcsiid to
grant an order where the said court shall
deem it for the manifest interest of all par
ties, authorizing and empowering the said
assignees to make public sale of such real
estate or so much thereof as shall be deemed
necessary at such place, and upon such
terms as the sail court shall direct, of which
sale notice shall be given twerty days prior
thereto by handbills, and publication in at
least two newspapers in the county where
said lands are situated, should two newspa
pers be published in the county, ono of
which Jit'iy be German, if such be published
in the county, which sale or sales af.er be
ing confirmed by s..i 1 court shall discharge
all liens agiiust th real es'atj so sold, ex
cepting that wheie the lien of a mortgage
upon real estate is or shall be prior to all
other liens upon the same property except
other mortgages, ground rents, and the pur
chase money due the Commonwealth, the
lien of such mortgages shall not be destroyed
or iu any way affected by any sale made by
virtue or authority of any sale made under
the provisions of this act, and the proceeds
arising therefrom shall be appropriated to
liens extinguished by virtue of such sale
according to their priority.
j' oviifed, Before said sale is authorized
the assignee or assignees shall file a bond
with two approved sureties in double the
estimated value of said real estate condi
tioned fbr a faithful appropriation of the
And prntidfd furllttry That the court
shall require such proof of notice of such
intended application to have been given to
the lien creditors or their attorneys as said
court shall deem sufficient to give said lien
creditors an opjiortuuity to be heard touch
ing said order of sale.
Section 2. Whenever said court shall
grant an order of . sale as aforesaid, said
court may order a stay of execution on all
liens that may be divested by such sale by
the assignee until said order shall be ex
pended or revoked.
liovtJed, That it shall be lawfnl for said
court to extend any order granted as afore
said or to award an alius or pi u lies order
Section 3. Whenever any such assignee
shall make sale, either public or private of
any real estate assigned under the deed of
assignment and the assignor or any person
should refuse to surrender jmssesston of the
real estate so sold to the purchaser at said
sale, it shall thereupon be lawful for said
purchaser, after having fully complied with
the terms of said sale, to tile a petition iu
the Court of Common Fleas of the j roper
county, setting forth the facts, and the said
court shall thereupon direct notice of the
filing of such petition to be served upon the
erson in jiossessioii, and requiring him or
her to show cause within ten days from the
time of service of such a notice, why jMisses
sioii should not be surrendered to such pur
chaser. The court shall upon the filing of
such petition aud answer, or if no answer
be filed, then upon the cx iraliou of the
ten days af.-res-iid. hear and determine whe
ther or not the purchaser is entitled to pos
session aud if so, make an order directing
the SherifF to deliver to said purchaser pos
session of the premises.
Provide.! i That the liens of mechanics
and material men shall not in any way be
invalidated or impaired by any of the pro
visions of this act, but the same shall in all
cases be entitled to receive out of the pro
ceeds of side whatever sum they may be le
gally entitled to according to right and
priority of lien.

Metallic Accumulation in the Enth.
In a work of real value on the subject of
the precious metals, written several years
since in England by Mr. Jacobs, the sug
gestion is thrown out that it is possible that
gold, silver, copper, iron, etc., actually
re-accumulate in certain localities, under the
potent influence of a law not yet discovered.
Such is the loss of coined metals in this
and all the commerical countries of Europe,
by mere friction of pieces in the pocket, and
in packing, repacking, and by transporta
tion, as to amount to a startling sum, iu
the aggregate, in a single year.
A grave question is this : what becomes
of it ? The nicest chemical researches into
the composition of the soil where the ma
jor part thus lost by abrasion disappear, does
not show the slightest trace of it. What
becomes of the pins? That is an equally
philosophical inquiry made more urgent
when it is recollected that fourteen tons of
rrass wire arc manufactured into pius in
one town daily.
It seems, thercf re, when the metals are
reduced to impalpable atoms, as they are
by use, they are transported by the atmos
phere, where they arc re-collected atid re
coiisoiidatcd. It is by no means an un
scientific thought that such movement- of
j atoms may take place. Miners iu gold re
gions re-sitt the earth, after a year or two.
which had every particle of gold washed
out at first, because they soy it grows again.
Here is a hint, at least, for commencing
som new train of investigations.
What an enormous quantity of iron de
composes and disappears annually, every
where, if not protected against the disinte
grating influence of air and water, which is
not to-bj foun 1 where it is placed, and the
inquiry is pertinently asked where does
it go to ?
Beyond a doubt all the metals are sub
jected to laws like all other elements. Their
separation from their native localities, like
burning coal, is but lilierating a prisoner.
After various phases ah ive ground they
wear out, and at last they diniiiiLh in vol
ume and disappear; but they are not lost.
In the course of ages they are rc-condueted
to reglms th it have the property of con
centrating floating atoms, and again they
are dug ot t of the rocks Ibr the gratifica
tion of never-satisfied man.
Untold thousands of tons of gold and sil
ver disappeared three thousand years ago.
which may now be re-gathering in the
Facific mines or in the sands of Africa.
All the iron ships wi!l sail fbr unknown
iCiial ports at last, and, at some vastly dis
tant epoch in the future history of the
globe we inhabit, again be quarried, smelted,
and fashioned for the use of our descend

lie didn't look as if his pockets held fifty
cents, but a rich mm has a right to dress
as he chooses. He loafed up Griswold
street until he he saw the right sort of a
fice, and then asked: '"Can you show me
a bank ?"
'Yes, sir ; three doors below, or just
across the street, or right back there."
"Thanks. I'd like to put some mmey in
some bunk, but I'm a little afraid of banks."
The citizen pricked up his cars and
"You have some money to leuJ, have
"A trifle," was the answer. '-Do -ou
know of anybody who'd like to take souii
and give mi a note at seven per cent? I
think of g..ingto Mexico for a while."
'Let's see?" mused the citiz'ii, ! don't
know but I'd take some myself.''
'L unmc git a drink aud then we'll talk,"
said the stranger.
"Yes, certainly ; come on," replied the
ci'iz -n, and the two went into the basement.
Drinks were ordered by the citizen, one af
ter another, until his shiuplasters felt lone
ly. He sail he could mike a good use of
a few thousand dollars for a year, and some
of his friends might also take a thousand
more. The stranger put down gin, whisky,
lager and brandy until his legs got out.
The ii:izeu laid him on a bench aud tried
to sober him, but the fellow went dead
asleep while they were trying to force vine

he was an old loafer, aud a policeman was

A Very Old Lady.
There is living to-day near llagersfown,
Maryland, an old lady by the name of Eliza
beth Snively, horn loth of February, 1773,
within three miles of where she now resides.
She is n w iu her It) Itli years, having lived
in the house where she now resides SG
years, aud been a widow 72 years. Her
mind is gtwid and for one of her years quite
active, being able to attend to all her own
business, such as overseeing her large farm,
going into 11 igerstown city to m ike her
tiwn deposits in bank, &e. She well recol
lects having seen General Washington, and,
iu speaking of the hardships of the rebel
lion and the waroflS12, says they are
nothing tube comjiared to those of the
Revolution, as the men had all gone to war,
aud on more than one occasion she heljed
to dig graves and bury the dead during
those trying times. She is truly a remark
able woman, and should by all mains be
induced to attend the Centennial. Her re
sidence is a short distance- from tho State
line, cm tho Cumberland Valley railroad.
The Law of Murder in England.
The law relating to murder being still
considered unsatisfactory in E igland. Sir
John E. Wihnot has submitted a bill to
Farliiment which provides as- follows:
1. The crimi of murder shall h; dividsl
into offenses of the first arid second degrees. 2
Any person convicted of murder in the first
degree shall suffer deith. 3. Auv pers Kl
convicted of murder in the second degrea
shall be punished -with penal servitude for
life, or f r ny period not less than seven
years, or with imprisonment with hard la
bor f.r any period not exceedirrg twoyeursj
(This clause has in view certain' cases ofiri
fatiticide.) 4. The degree of murder shall
be f.-und by jury upon the facts submit ted;
5. Murder in the first degree is tine kill
ing, widi deliberate ni.dicu aforethought, a
human being iu the peace of the king or
queen regnant. G. It is murder iu the first
degree when death has been caused by the
wilful act of any person committing or at
tempting to commit a felony, or vfrhen as-
saulting any government ofiieer in the exe
cu:ion of his duty. 7. It is murder i;i the
second degree where a verdict of murder
is found by the jury, hut not in the first
degree, y. Infanticide is murd.-r of tho
second degree in all cases where the death
of a child is caused by the willful, unlawful
and m ilicious act of the mother, provided
such act has been committed at the time of
birth or within seven d.rys. i. In trials
for infanticide the jury may return a ver
dict of concealment of birth. 10. In any
tihd for infanticide it must be proved that
the child was living.
Oh ! thoss Sandiy Nights.
A wet Sunday night affects the two
classes of lovers in opimsite way. To hiui
who is engaged it is a godsend, as itcnabhs
him to sung up to her in the parh.r and
have the whole evening to himself; but to
the other lover, the one who is not engaged,
a rainy Sund iy night is a most painful
episoJe. His footing at the h mse isn't
enough to warrant his going therethrough
the storm, and all he can do is to attend
the church, and stand iu the vestibule, and
pull up his shirt collar, in the despairing
hope that she may appear. She don't, of
course, and he ges buck to his dreary
home wretched and miserable beyond de
scription. Oh, those days of ecstatic idiocy!
huw their memory overcomes us.
