interesting facts were brought to light which were only touched upon in our report of the proceedings the most important witnesses was Dr S A professor of chemis try in the University of Rochester Some idea of the nature of the learned BOrs testimony has already been given our readers but in order better to place the importance of the matter before the pub lic aud give the information which ifc ia necessary should be given a reporter of the Democrat and held a short interview with Dr upon the subject The facts gleaned from the con versation will be placed before our readers in condensed form no attempt being made to follow the style The case bears on the important ques tion of identifying written documents negotiable paper In this pat case both the drawer of the check and the bank teller who cashed it testified most positively to the genuineness of the signature Hence the natural conclusion would be that the check had been altered by changing face in some way from to Writing materials a variety of pens pencils brushes and several mysterious solutions were found in the the prisoners They were aent to the witness Dr the prosecuting attorney with the request to make chemical and ascertain if they could be employed in the suspected Tbe witness testified that he tad analysed all of them and had proven that by their use it was possible to re move writing in ink to re the paper to its original appearance The witness presented to the court ex hibits of checks which had been paid as shown by the bank from which a part of all of the writing had per removed by means of thia fluid found in the possession of the prisoners and the paper was in no respect injured fc The witness evidence so far was strongly in support of the theory above given re garding the the check But when he came to apply the chemical of the check itself to tain whether it had been treated as sus or not he discovered that it had not been thus This led him to suspect tho genuineness of the which up to this time had not been by auy one Under the microscope pencil tracings were detected they wero followed through out the whole signature The witness evidence a photograph of the check in winch the pencil tracings were distinctly reproduced and also pointed out to the judge and jury the tracing on the original seen ally by means of a The force of this evidence was to discredit evi dence previously given as to the genuine ness of the signature and iead to the con that the original check given by Mr Shedd had never been used but that a new one had been forged on which his signature had bean traced in pencil This explains the probable use of the plate of Klass fixed in an inclined frame found among the effects of the prisoners The defense at this point denied the ity ef removing writing as asserted by the witness and challenged him to repeat 5n presence of the court the test solutions in question and submitted as the test the check itself asking to the teat made oh a part of the name of the paper and also on the latter part of the signature Witness took a seat at the table under the oyen of both judge and jury and with the test demand VOL TITUSVILLE MAY 26 1877 NO 4367

surreptitiously getting what little clothing they have out of the house filling their valises with anything heavy avail able and gone so far i as to have patent valises made that will double up like a patent dinner pail and after all the clothing it contains on their back after getting two or three days board coolly fold up their valise and pnt it in their pocket the first opportunity to repack it and play the game on a jother Perhaps tho worst annoyance to hotel men are the female beats with which the country is flooded they travel on their winning ways and get into the landlord he knows it and when they are justly punished which is very seldom fall tack on the plea sex protect Not long since a lady was driven in a hack up to the ladies entrance of onu of our best hotels and was escorted to the She was dressed in the of fashion but neat and tasty and by no means guady The only article of baggage she her was a small box neatly wrapped up in manilla paper with a attached by moans of which it was carried This she seemed to handle with great care and requested that it be placed in the private vault of the house and a receipt given for the same She was a bewitch ing blonde ravishing form and a to melt the heart of a Shy lock She entranced all the boarders spent a pleasant week and one bright morning started but to do a little shop and for all that her friends in tho house knew is

have a which showed simply blank paper where little crooked coral at the tip to avert the evil eye Each person is the letters Geo had been written while from the latter part of tha signa ture the ink had totally vanished reveal ing however now tho letters distinctly traced in lead pencil as the witness had suspected experiment was perfectly successful and convincing and left not a shadow of a doubt on the minds of the as to how the check had been man He was pressed to give the names and chemical composition of the articles ana and used in these tests He con sented to hand up to the the names of the articles but refused to answer on the ground that by his public testimony ho would be placing a danger ous instrument of crime in the hands of dishonest persons Counsel waived tha question It is a noteworthy fact that by a sort of retributive justice the chemists final and complete of tha falsity of tho signature as made in open court in response to the challenge of tha defense was accomplished by the application of the identical solution which the criminals had themselves brought to Rochester to use in perpetrating their frauds on our bankers careful how you swear to your
