C!ii*r Justice I'MXton'n Opinion ot the
Uinherger Murder Cune— nt
of the Low-r Court Atltrined.
Uhii f Justice Paxson, in theSiipi .ine
Court, Pittsburgh, M'-naay moridog,
rendered an opinion affirming the judg
ment of the lower court in the appeal of
Joseph and D-iviii Nicely.
The men were convicted in the Court
of Oyer and Terminer of Somerset county
of the murder of Herman Umbergcr, an
ageil tanner, who was killed on the 27ih
of February last while they were trying
to roll him of $115,000.
Chief Justice Paxsou, in banding down
the opinion uftlrming the judgment of the
lower court, said :

There was a time in the history of
the .English criminal law when great
Crimes were left unpunished because of
harmless techuical errors. This greater
strictness was perhaps due to the fact
that at that period the criminal code was
especially bloody. Capital punishmeu'
was inflicted for very trifling offenses,

i science, and a more enlightened adminis

ANDY Gt.OSSICIt'.S CONDITION.
It Continues Good—Strong Hopes for His
At a late hour Saturday evening Andy
Glosser was reported to be doing well.
His father arrived on Thursday evening
and has been witli hira several thru s
since. Andy seems cheerful, and tie
probability is that he will recover.
There is much speculation as to how jc
came to be caught. The engineer re
ported that Glosser was lying on the
track when first seen by him. How he
got there is not much clearer than when
the news of the accident first came out.
Glosser, it is known, had just receivud
his check fremthe flood relief. Persons
who saw him very shortly before the
accident contradict the statement, as
made by some, that he was intoxica
ted. He may have been drinking some,
but bad full control of himself. lis was
also seen to have a roll of paper money
on Wednesday, at least reports say so.
' When found, he had only something over
two dollars on his person. There are
those who believe that Andy was the vic
tim of foul play. That lie could not have
been on the track long is true, for the en
gine had gone up less than fifteen min
utes before it returned.
There are also those who think that lie
got the heel of his shoe fast between the
track and the guard rail. He was caught
just at tlic end of the crossing where the
guard rail is curved away from the track
. making a trap into which a concave
heel Bitch as was on the shoes he wore
easily slip. It would be impossible
to extricate the shoo without a little time.
The train tnay have been close upon him
and in his struggles he may have fallen.
The lice! was torn from one of his shoes,
which seems to render probable the
theory that he was caught while crossing
the track. It is likely that when he re,
covers more from the shock of the acci
dent that lte will be able to give an ac
count of how he came to be where he

The remains of Mr. Charles Oswald, a
victim of the flood, who with his family
lived at No. 311 Railroad street, were
brought up from Nineveh Saturday even

be found at that place. Funeral services
will be held at Bc. Joseph's Church iu

mains will be interred in Sandyvale.
Air. Oswald lost three daughters in tlie
flood, aged nineteen, twelve and nine
years. Tlie body of the eldest lias been
found and is buried in Lower Yoder. It
will soon he moved to Sandyvale also.
The other bodies have not been found.
Mrs. Oswald, it is well known, had a
most remarkable and thrilling experience
in the flood. She has left of her family
three boys and one married daughter.
THE " UNKNOWN " IN LOWER CODER.
Seventeen ltoilie* Kiiincd Yesterday. But n
The work of raising the unknown
dead from the cemetery in Lower Yoder
wis begun Alonday morning. A large
crowd of people as usual, were present.
Seventeen bodies, about half tlie number
iu that part of tlie cemetery, were raised,
but none were identified. Alucli incon
venience is caused by the water, tlie
graves being nearly full in some cases. A
pump is used to remove tlie water so that
the bodies can be raised. No bodies
were taken to Grand View as was intend
ed, owing perhaps to the condition of the
Cambria bridge. It is expected that all
the bodies in tlie English Catholic section
of the cemetery will be raised to-day.
Those in the German Catholic division
will be taken up next.

We have repeatedly culled attention to
the fact that many of our important

that they were in consequence very dan

might have been expected, there were
two accidents last night. It is a wonder
there have not been more.
Air. John AI. Wilson, of South Fork,
while on his way to the depot in Johns
town Monday night, fell over a pile of
dirt near Aliller's store, on Alarket street,
and had his leg broken. He was attended

was a member of the church ot which the
former has charge.
Prior to the flood Dr. Duncan lived at
No. 279 Maple Avenue, Woodvale. He
was married to Miss Wendell, daughter
of Mr. Charles Wendell, of Woodvale,
about seventeen months before the flood.
When the rush of water came they left
the house, but got only as far as the
Pennsylvania railroad before the torrent
was upon them. They, with dozens o
others, climbed upon a standing freight
train. The heavy cars tossed in the
waves like toys. They climbed toward
the front of the train where there seemed
to be less danger, the husband preceding.
A coupling broke just as he had crossed
it, and the rear of the train with its load
of people, among them Mrs. Duncan,
went down the stream. It bad gone but
a short distance until it rolled over
throwing all the people into the water.
None of tlieiii are thought to have escaped.

anxiously as the lid was removed. There
were many disappointed, but one rejoiced.
