Salem Daily News, The (Newspaper) - September 26, 1890, Salem, Ohio THE SALEM DAILY NEWS. VOL. II. NO. 228. SALEM. OHIO, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 26. 1890. TWO CENTS. Bloodshed at the Trial of O'Brien and Dillon. Friends of the Prisoners Clubbed by the Police, Many Keinf Badly lojured. Nationalist of Parlia- ment AUo SufTar From the Brutality of the Constabulary. Sept large number 0{ members of tho Irish Nationalist were ia attendance yesterday upon the trial of Messrs. O'Brien and Dillon at Tipperary. The court room was crowded to its utmost capacity. Thou- sands of of and sympathizers the :o Tipper.iry Thursday morning, carry- ia sbillalahs. Just before the hour for calling tho cases the crowd outside the court house bad grown to prodigious proportions and the police were called upon to prevent the entrance to the buiidinirof any except those especially in tho proceedings. In car- out those instructions the police charged upon the crowd, using their batons freely. For at least five minutes there was a regular stand-up fight be- tween tne crowd and police. Finally the crowd gave way and the police suc- ceeded in maintaining a clear space in front of tbe court house. Mr. William O'Brien first refused bo enter the building unless the general public was freeiy admitted, but he finally went in, bitterly complaining of the brutality of the police. One officer in the rush struck Commoner Harring- ton, severely wounding him. Another struck Mr. Halifax, who caused a sensa- tion by appearing in court bleeding freely from a scale wound, the blood running-down over his face a-.d neck aad saturating the collar of his coat One man was struck in the face by a po- liceman's baton and had his teeth forced down his throat Several persons were so badly injured in tho meloe that they were obliged to call surgical aid. John Morleyentered the court greatly agitated .and appealed to the bench to prevent such brutal and wanton baton- Mr. Morley and Mr. Dillon ap- pealed to Colonel Caddell to allow the public free ingress. This was peremp- torily refused, but ultimately the doors were thrown open and the public al- lowed to enter. Mr. Dillon objected to Mr. Shannon as prosecuting attorney, asserting that he had personally en- countered him at Casbel, when he (Mr. Dillon) had been grossly Insulted. Mr. O'Brien said that the last time he saw Mr. Shannon he was at the head of the police batoning the people. Shannon had already tried him three times, and hisbeincr put in charge of the prosecu- tion of the present case was an indecent Insult. Mr. Ronan, counsel for the crown, was permitted by the court to slightly alter the charges upon which the de- fendants were taken into custody, amidst strenuous protests from the prisoners' counsel that such alteration at this stage of the case was illegal. After the protests had been entered the oourt permitted the introduction of gen- eral evidence to form a conspiracy in which Messrs. O'Brien and Dillon were implicated previous to the dates on which tho warrants wpre issued, and ruled out all evidence with regard to the individual acts of tbe defendants previous to the issuance of tho warrants.

Wreckers' Trial Postponed. TBOY, N. Y., Sept. Caia John Reed and Arthur Buett. tho al- leged train wreckers, were brought into the Court of Sessions before Grif- fith, yesterday in tho absence o! other counsel, Assistant District At- torney McManus appeared for them and made a strong plea to havo tr-.eir cases put over tbe term, on tho ground that no time or opportunity had been given to procure witnesses. Tho court said that all the witnesses had been sub- penaed by the sheriff's S.-JL-! the excuse was insufficient. The court directed that the trials proceed and tbat an extra panel of forty jurors be drawn. Mr. McManus asked for and was granted a separate iriai for Buett. The court advised all the possi- ble and R. A. Parmenter, associated with the prosecution, said that upon further consideration the people had concluded net to move tho trial at this term of court. Bob P.nkorton and Do- toctire Humphrey were court and re- mained until the.- court complimented the grand jury oa the intelligent and fearless manner which they had handled the train wrecking inquiry.

Who Camo Out After Torch to Gain Their Point Pernonx Killed itnrt LAMAR, Col., Sept has been received hero of serious trouble between the towns of Boston and Springfield, in Baca County. Since Baca County waa created from Las Animas County by tho last General Assembly there has boon strife between these two towns as to which should have tho county seat. The act organizing the county provided that Springfield should be tho seat. Jt is al- leged that by manipulation of ballots at the election last fall it was made the permanent seat. The people of Boiton claim that Springfield has not the worth of county rjroportv necessary to prevent the county seat from boing moved by vote this fall. The only available building for a county court house was a hotel building in Boston. A few weeks ago this was sold at sheriff's sale and bought by Springfield parties. Saturday a party left Springfield for Boston with machinery to move the building to the former town for use as a court house, thus preventing the county seat issue from being raised this fallen tho ground of insufficient property. Rollers were put under the b ildin-f, which is throe stories high and the finest In the coun- ty, and twenty teams were hitched to it. Inside tbe house wore stationed twelve men armed with Winchester rifles. The building was moved about five miles toward Springfield, which is about twenty-five miles from Boston, when the people of tho latter place dis- covered the trick and immediately or- ganized All available horses and rifles were brought into requisition and a strong party started in pursuit. Upon overtaking the building movers the pursuers commanded a 'bait, which was answered by a volley of shots from the men In the building. Tho Boston crowd then fired and a fierce battle raged, which ended in the Springfield party being driven from the building. Coal oil was then procured and the floors of the building saturated. The building was then set on fire and con- sumed. Great excitement prevails, but owing to remoteness of the scone news is hard to obtain. Parties arrived here Wednesday night from Sprlnt-flell and departed hurriedly, after buying all the cartridges they could secure. Several persons aro reported as having been wounded and two are said to have boon killed during the fight. THEY AIMED HIGH. Morrow Kucape of Dlaic, of Btei- from A-maftslnti' SAN AXTOXIO, Tex..
