of IJclievcil Uis Brother Guilty Dr Fosdick believed that it was his brother who had shot at him and in tho last conversation lie over had with him he told aim so TUU brothers lived along in the samo house each attending to Ms own wants anil sinco tho conversation noted above which occurred a week ex changed a word Tho fact that his brother had been acquitted of tho attempt on his life did not convinco the doctor tliat he was in nocent it was simply a caso of nol proven to him The death of Albert if Dr Fosdick is not tho uinrderer seems to prove tbnt Albert was innocent of the at tempt on the doctor Who Is tho Oiiilty One Tho coroners inquest developed the fol lowing facts On tbo lock opening to Dr Fosdicks room a piece of paper was found pasted carefully over tha keyhole with queei hieroglyphics upon it in explanation o which Dr Fosdick says that on going to Kidaumroo Thursday ha was afraid som one might enter his room and ho had placei this paper over the lock as a precaution In his room is a trunk in which were found tho doctors clothes among which were the trousers worn by him Saturday evening showing spots oE human blood Tho blooc spots were also found in his bed Dr Fos dick however tells a straightforward story as to bis whereabouts and explains the facts an to the spots of blood found upon his clothing and the suspicion that he had killed Albert in revenge for the attempt on his own Hfeof which he believed his brother guilty is nob a strong one Was There Woman In the Case Albert Fosdick had an unenviable reputa tion in tha neighborhood for licentiousness and various stories are afloat connecting him with several married women It is claimed now that ho had said to intimate friends that the reason hu told conflicting stories sis to his whereabouts at the time his brother was shot was that he was then in company of a married woman and that to screen her he told several lies It is believed by many that some man with whose wife Albert had been intimate has done the das tardly deed and tho theory that was urged at tho time of the shooting of Dr Fosdick the assassin intended to killed Albert aud mistook 0110 for tho urged now with much vigor by many of tho citizens Tho Verdict The verdict ot the coroners jury was that Albert came to his death ironi a pistol shot in the hands of an unknown person and for an unknown cause Tha authorities have been on the ground all day and are still hunting for clews but no arrests have been made The country is groatly excited and hundreds of pooplo visited the scene of the tragedy yesterday and every person has a theory of liis own Dr Fosdick offers a re ward of SiOU for the discovery of the mur derer of his brother There was no snow upon the ground the last snow having dis appeared and left the ground in a soft muddy condition which froza during the night and no tracks could be discovered on or about the farm that would give any clew to thu murderer FOOTPRINTS IN THE MUD Traced far Enough to Show That a Striuicer Bid Not Make Thou gentleman who arrived here from Ahneua last night said that while mak ing an investigation of the grounds around the IIOUSB large footprints were discovered in the soft ground leading directly from the door through which the murderer made his escape They wero followed down to the edge of the wooded swamp and from there i they led by a circuitous path over to a place on road that is known as Wilsons Cross ing They were lost altogether when the road was struck A measurement of tho prints shows that they were made by large boots but what is still mora uotabla is tbe circumstance that ttia owner of the boots made his way through the swamp Well Acquainted with the Grouud i It is proved that he was thoroughly acij quaintod with the country or he would ted the offiesrs to go tnrougii ttte rest or is wardrobe They did so but found noth g Reputatlon of the Dead Man This is a strange tragedy nnd the strangsst art of it is that there are few circumstances r facts that may lead to the discovery of is assassin Albert Fosdick had been county urveyor of Von Buren county for seven aind half years and had always borne a good sputation throughout the county except as jeutioned above as tohis liaisons As county urveyor his business led him all over that art of the countryand he met many people mong whom it is said were numerous sius eptibla women who became smitten with ini He was known as a ladykiller and is numerous wooings caused much bitter ess Whether the work was done by a man r woman or by both man and woman is upen to discussion The Attempt on Dr JTosflick The shooting of Dr Fosdicik of which Al was accused occurred on Feb IL The wouldbe assassin stood just the one vindow to the room in which the doctor vas sitting and fired two barrels ol a shot gun into his victims face and neck The was not over six or seven feet aud md the miscreant been a good marksman lis victim would have been disfigured for ife As it was his shoulder
