Fiendish Assault on Lizzie
About 8:1". Saturday night while re
turning from her work in the Hotel
Lowry where she was employed ia the
hotel kitchen. Lizzie Kreitzer. aged 23
years, daughter of Anthony Kreitzer
who lives beyond the toll gate on the
Plank road, was knocked down by a
negro, beaten insensible, thrown over a
fence and down a six-foot embankment
into Mrs Mary Muntz's garden, where
an unsnccessflfl attempt was made to
Outrage her. Her nose was broken and
a gash in which two fingers could be
laid was cut in her head above the right
temple The assault was made within
fifty yards of the Muntz home and in
the bright glare of an arc light located
on the old Pittsburg pike just west of
the Hospital. It is supposed a passer-by
frightened Lizzie's assailant away be
fore he accomplished his hellish work.
•Vfter laying unconsious for about an
hour and bleeding profusely the girl
partiy revived, crawled up the bank and
through the fence, staggered a huudred
yards toward home and again sank
down unconscious. One man passed
her on her short walk but said he
thought she was only drunk. When
she fell in the roadway, Newton Pol
lock saw her and with Joseph Manny
and Joseph Lavery got her into the
buggy of a man named Rowan,who was
driving home from Butler and had her
taken home. When found she murmer
ed ' the negro cook strucK me" and the
name "Howard.''
Dr. Sell tiltis was called and dressed
her wonnds, which seemed very likely
tc prove fatal, as Lizzie did not become
conscious again until Sunday night. On
Monday she seemed perfectly rational
but could remember nothing of the at
tack on her and could not describe the
man. The affair did not become gener
ally known in town until Sunday.
A short time before the attack on Liz
lie, Saturday night, a negro stopped
Mrs. Joseph Lavery, who lives on Coal
street, peered intently into her face and
then passed on. Mr Lavery saw the
same man while walking home a few
minutes later. Andy Root also saw
him and two little daughters of Henry
Leidecker saw him walking on the
Plank road near their home. All de
scribe him as short and heavy set, with
a slouch hat pulled down over his eyes,
dark clothes and a heavy cane or stick
in his hand. Neighlwrs of the Kreitzers
hunted the neighborhood until mid
From Lizzie s remark on being found,
suspicion rested on the Hotel Lowry a
chef. Richardson, and her father and
some neighbors went before Justice
Keck, Saturday night and made infor
mation against him. but Proprietor
Weisburg. arid Clerk Louis Rockenstem
swore Ri' hardson was busy about the
Hotel all evening and would answer for
his appearance when wanted. Three
porters, Thomas Hopper, Robert Powell
and Walter Washington are employed
at the Hotel They were arrested but
ncthing could be shown to implicate
them and they were released. Mr.
Weisburg said he wonld give SSO to
help apprehend the criminal. Mr.
Kreitzer offered the same.
Monday morning the County Commis
sioner's offered a reward of S4OO for the
arrest and conviction of Miss Kreitzer's
assailant. It was learned that a negro
named Henry had fled from town
on hearing of the arrests Sunday.
Tuesday morning County Detective
McMarlin arrested a negro named J.
M. Wood while at work at Alameda
Park. Wood boarded with Mrs. Wat
ters on West DSt. District Attorney
Painter does not wish to make known
the exact nature of their evidence
against him, but said he had been act
ing suspiciously and they had ample
proof on which to hold him for court.
That evening Detective A. Allen ar
rested two young negroes, one of whom
he feels sure is guilty of the assault.
Their names are Perry Baker, a former
porter at the Hotel Lowry. and Abra
ham Lincoln Miller, whose home is in
Pnnxsutawney. They boarded with
Mrs. Williams, a colored woman living
on Etna St. Allen was suspicions of
Miller and hired him to work up the
case. Miller'accused Baker, saying
they were drinking together Saturday
night at the Hotel Butler and that Bak
er told him he was going to attack Miss
Kreitzer. Baker declares himself in
nocent and accuses Miller. The latter
answers closely to the description given
of the negro seen on the road before the
assault and there are other strong points
against him

The Citizen at Atlantic City.
For the convenience of our readers
who may visit Atlantic City this summer
we have arranged to have the latest is
sues of the CITIZEN always on file at
the Philadelphia Inquirer's Seashore
Bureau, on Young's Pier.
You probably think we're joking
when we speak of the advance in price
on most all lines of furniture. The
Iron Bed people advanced 10 per cent a
few days ago. Bed Room suits have
advanced 10 per cent. The tendency is
upwards in manufacturers' price all
around. Take advantage of prices next
30 days at Brown & Cos. on all lines of
Furniture. Our old prices will prevail
for a short time only.

left all her personal estate and the
Park Hotel property, title to which was
in her name, to the adopted daughter
Mary Gladys Shirley, a little girl of
three vears. Miss Lavina McKinnej of
PiquaO.. sister of the deceased, was
named as the child's guardian.
The will will probably not stand the
test of law, as a husband cannot be de
prived of his curtsey, just as a wife
cannot l>e deprived of dower, but the
amount he can obtain from the estate
is materially lessened. If Mrs Shirley
had died intestate, her personal property
would have been divided equally be
tween her adopted daughter and Mr. S.
and the latter wonld have the use or
rents issue and profits of the real estate
for life. Under the Act of 1853 the
husband can elect to take as against his
wife's will the same interest as a wife
can as against her husband's will ex
cepting the S3OO exemption or he can
take only her real estate by curtesy.
This enables Mr. Shirley tc take one
third of the personal estate absolutely
and one third interest in the real estate
for life or be can let the personal estate
go and have the whole use of the hotel
for life, the title finally going to the
little adopted daughter. Mr. - Shirley

license transferred to Mr. Humes, the

Miller, in preaching the funeral sermon
of ex-Congressman Martin, a native of
Prospect, this county, created a sensa
ion by criticizing Mr. Martin's private
life. Among other things Mr. Miller
said that he had been born and reared
in a Christian home, bnt left that home
and its teachings at the age of 12 and
entered the army to serve his country.
"It would have been far better," said
Mr. Miller, "if Mr. Martin had been
shot on the field of battle than to have
lived to lead the life he did. He was in
public office the better portion of his life
and made in one office SIOO,OOO, but was
sent home for burial in a cheap pine
coffin furnished by the government."
