Escaped Lunatic At Tyrone
Files Telegram Stating His
Expected Arrival
Chief of Police of Borough
Locked Him Up For
Tyrone, Pa., Mar. JS. —An escaped
lunatic from the County Home at
Hollidaysburg, caused excitement in
Tyrone during the past week. He
entered several stores and his de
mands were absurd. At a sporting
goods' store he demanded at least
a half dozen revolvers and an equal
supply ol hunting knives. The Chief
of Police was in the store at the time,
and he was immediately taken into
custody. One of his stunts was stop
ping at the telegraph office and ffling
a message to the White House at
Washington, stating that he would be
there on the next day. Augustus
Carling, stationed at Camp Lee, Va.,
is home for several days, being called
here on account of the death of his
brother. —Mr. and Mrs. R. F. Bayer
and John Bayer, left this week for
New York City, where they will at
tend the sessions of a wholesale Gro
ceryman's Convention, which business
they are interested in at this place.—
The Rev. and Mrs. George C. Haagen
•of Lancaster, were guests during the
week of D. H. Haagen of this place.
—Lieutenant Robert E. Hobba en
route from France to his home in
Osceola Mills, stopped in Tyrone a
day this week to call on friends.—
Charles W. Lilly attached to the Hos
pital Corps and located at Staten Is
land, N. Y.. spent a week's furlough
with his family.—William E. Nevitt,
the President of the Local Draft
Board has returned from a months
trip through the Southern States.—
Lieutenant Diemer E. Wasson, of
Camp Williams, Maine, spent several
days on furlough with his parents
here.—Another cut on the Tyrone Di
vision of the Pennsylvania Railroad
among the working forces makes it
apparent that the outlook for this
summer indicates a depression in
business. As Tyrone is dependent on
the railroad for at least two-third 3
of its business, these reductions in
force, among the railroad men, will
be felt during the remainder of the
year. The March cut just announced
carries a further reduction of about
25 per cent in the working force
on the division, and further, with re
gard to hour men, it is announced
that the month of March will be a
twenty working day month, which
will mean several days lay off dur
ing the month for this class of labor.
—Captain Robert W. Owens, a son of
Mrs. Ella R. Owens has been assigned
permanently to the Peace Commission
at Paris. Young Owens is a graduate
of the Law School of the University
of Pennsylvania, and was selected for
the work involved on account of his
special study in the law of damages.

to hunters and fishers, both of whom
declare that there is plenty of
game there but intimate the move
to close the tract is being made to
benefit a few individuals.
stock Big Preserve
Last fail the State Game Com
mission located a game preserve in
this district, covering about 25,000
acres, stocking it with deer, rabbits
and other animals. Many of these,
hunters say, have gone farther away
and have been seen in Clark's and
Powell's Valleys in the tracts which
the water company is endeavoring
1o close. In these areas fishers de
clare tlie State established big trout
runs also, and they have joined in
the light to keep the ground open.
A survey has been made in Clark's
Vailey by the water company and
with the options held on the tracts
there, should the public road be
closed, it would give the firm com
plete control of practically all un
seated timber land to within a short
distance of the State preserve.
I.ast Friday the board of viewers
met at Millersburg and started their
investigation preparatory to report
ing to the court the advisability of
closing the road. At that session
witnesses from all parts of the upper
end of the county were present and
it was clearly shown that a bitter
fight would be waged to keep the
timber land open.
One of the reasons which was ad
vanced against closing the road was
that it leads to a cemetery. Persons
who have relatives buried there
complained that they would be un
able to get to the burial grounds
with the road closed.
Cp in Arms
Sportsmen declare they have proof
sufficient to convince them that the
idea is to shut off the valley from
the public so that a few individauls
can reap the benefit of the fish and
game placed on the State preserve.
11. E. Buffington. of Lvkens. Is
taking an active part in the fight
and meetings have been held in four
of the larger towns in the northern
part of the county. Definite plans
have already been agreed upon in
the campaign, the hunters and fish
ers declaring they will make ever*
possible effort to retain the right to
tramp about in the vast timber area.
Allen Budd, a farmer residing far
back in Clark's Valley near Tower
City, is said to have threatened to
dose timber land he owns, and it is
reported that if the valley road is
closed a wall may be built across it
and "no trespass" signs posted along
the edge of the entire area.
Each year the popularity of the!
big retreat in Upper Dauphin is In
creasing and more hunting clubs
and lodges are being located there.
It was pointed out that with the
closing of all timber land except the
State preserve, the hunters will go
elsewhere, the clubs will leave the
district, and the State may decide
to close the preserve, as the officials
will not locate one in a section un
less there is an organization of at
least 300 members in the vicinity
who are outdoor sportsmen. ,
During the last two years about
9,500 hunters' licenses have been is
sued each season in this county,
and a large number of these journey
to the Clark and Powell Valley re
gion to hunt.

Verdict of Court-Martial Is
Unanimous, Says Dis
patch From Paris
By .Associated Press.
Paris, March 15.—Emile Cottip, the
anarchist who recently made an at
tempt upon the life of Premier George
Clemenceau, was today sentenced to
death by the court martial which
was trying him. The verdict of the
court martial was unanimous.
Cottgn first conceived the idea ot
shooting the premier in May, 1918,
according to an official record read
at the court martial. In May, 1918,
the employes of aviation factories
were on strike. Cottin practiced
shooting after that, it was read.
Fired Seven Shots
When the court martial opened the
clerk read the report describing the
attempt on the premier. The report
showed that Cottin fired twice with
out moving and then fired flwe times
while running behind the automo
bile which he was so close that
one witness believed he had jumped
on the rear of tiie car,. It was shown
that Cottin aimed at the seat in which
Premier Clemenceau was sitting and
fired so accurately that two bullets
almost touched.
"Rarely has a crime," says the re
port, "been accomplished with more
sustained premeditation, more ma
lure design, and more emplacible te
nacity with a certainty of method
which it seemed would infallibly
lead to a fatal result."
Cottin is described in the report
as primitive, vain and conceited and
believing himself omniscient. He
was üble'to earn thirty-seven francs
a day easily, yet finding society badly
organized, was desirous of destroy
ing everything. The document gives
expert medical opinion unreservedly
holding Cottin responsible for his ac

minds of the other taxpayers in the
county because it is only natural
that other property owners upon
glancing at such a statement can
be easily misled when the actual
facts of the case are not given.
"Judge McCarrell's farm in Wayne
township is untenanted and has been
for years. The buildings are little
more than ruins and the place has
not ben rented for years. It lies
far back in the valley and when
the assessor in the district says he
wouldn't take is as a gift one can
readily see that it not worth even
$9OO, the assessed valuation.
Willing to Sell
"My tract is assessed at $5OO, con
sisting of 100 acres. X will sell it
for that if X could get that much,
but I am positive X can't. Why
didn't Wells make a move to in
crease the valuations and let the
other officials decide'.' He says he
hasn't the initiative to act because
he is in the minorty'f Is his only
duty that of sitting around and
looking on then, or merely drawing
his pay as a Commissioner'.' Let j
him investigate, be fair and truth
ful about facts and together with I
the other Commissioners show the
public what these properties are:
worth. 1 want the Commissioners to |
take -action in this case, hold a spe
cial meeting and call any witnesses
they choose. X do not want Wells
to make statements about low as
sessments of properties 1 or Judge
McCarrell own and thus mislead the
public into thinking that it is be
cause of influence with assessors.
Scores of persons acquainted ,with
both tract are willing to tell what
they are woith and J feel sure that,
their estimates will be even lower
than the assessments."
Can't Give It Away
Other county officials who have
attended sessions of the board of re
vision declare that frequently when
important questions about assess
ments are presented for considcra
: tion and action Wells has left the
! room. At the meeting the other day
| when mention was made of the vul
l nations in the two tracts in ques
' tion, assessors told the County Com
missioners that they were positive
the valuations were not too high.
One of them when asked if he
would take Judge McCarrell's farm
as a gift replied: "1 wouldn't want
it." The fact that it has been un
tenanted and the ground untilled lor
years is well known, especially in
that section of the county, and other
property owners there said they
have not been mislead by reports
that the assessments ore too low.
Some of them told the County Com
missioners they wouldn't accept the
farm if given to them.
Many of Judge McCarrell's friends
sharply criticised Wells' statements
about the farm assessment, char
acterizing them as decidedly unfair
to the jurist, who is at present con
lined to his home. A largo number
ot' them only dridiculed the intima
tion that the property is underas
sessed as they know its location and.
