A DEATHBED CONFESSION.
A Dving Man Tolls How He Killed Hia
Wife and Represented That She Had
j>,,^'oy ; !' iPo.i Dispatch to New York Sun.
A startling revelation was made here to
day by I*r. J. T. Quinton, a prominent phy
sician, which dears up a mystery of more
than ten years' standing, Three weeks ago
.Silas Crossby, a quarry hand, was suddenly
taken sick, and Dr. Quinton was called in
to see him. Crossbv’s trouble soon devel
oped into typhoid pneumonia, and ho asked
the doctor if his case was a hopeless one to
let him know it, because he had a secret to
reveal which he could not take to the grave.
The physician told him that, if he desired to
niake any preparation for death, religious
or otherwise, lie would advise him to do so,
as his disease was necessarily fatal, though
lie might linger some time. The doctor was
astounded when Crossby said the confession
he wished to make was one of murder—that
he had killed his wife. The doctor suggested
the propriety of having either a minister of
the Gospel or an otticer of the law to wit
ness the confession, but Crossby said neither
was necessary. He then told the following
•‘Sly full name is Silas Aaron Crossby,
ami lam an Englishman by birth. Soon
after arriving iu this country we came to
j’restonville, where I have resided and
worked ever since. The family consisted of
myself and wife and Hiram Wellington, a
feilow countryman, who took passage with
us, and who remained with me until the
night of my wife’s death. Wellington was a
co-laborer of mine, and we were much at
tached to each other. I was married before
I came to this country. My wife’s name
was Sarah Farnsworth. The union was not
a happy one, and I spent much of my time
in meditating over the best means to get
rid of my wife without jeopardizing my
own personal safety. Wellington was bit
terly opposed to her, and frequently made
the remark that if he was in my place he
M ould get rid of her. I was encouraged by
these remarks, because I knew if I wanted
his assistance to get her out of the
way it would all right. We talked
frequently thereafter about the mat
ter, but nothing definite was settled
upon. It was, however, decided that Wel
lington should be in her company at the
house as much as possible, that I might
trump up false charges of infidelity against
her. But this amounted to nothing, as she
defiantly refuted the charges, and more fre
quently quarrels were the result. The
trouble and unhappiness of the household
were known to no one outside. Even the
immediate neighbors were unaware of the
trouble, as my wife visited no one, and was
seldom seen with a neighbor. In the early
part of September, 187", I came home from
work in rather a moody state of mind, and
began fault-finding the moment I entered
the house. Wellington was with me. A
quarrel between myself and wife arose,
when, in a moment of passion, I rushed at
her, and getting my hands tightly around
her throat I choked her to death. When we
found that life was extinct we carried the
body up-stairs and laid it on the bed.
and then discussed the best
way to dispose of it. Welling
ton said that as I had killed her he would
dispose of the remains, and to throw off sus
picion he would leave town immediately,
and the storv of an eloyement of Mrs. Silas
Crossby with Henry Wellington would cover
up the whole affair? Wellington carried the
body away between 1 and _ o’clock in the
morning, and said it was all right. He
buried it in one of the old abandoned quar
ries, which have long since been tilled in
with refuse. Bolling ton dressed himself and
left the town. Before going, however, he
wrote a letter, supposed to be dictated by
Mrs. Crossby, to me, and left it in her
room, as we all occupied separate rooms.
The letter gave in detail a full account of
her unhappiness with me, and in substance
stated the reason of her going away with
BelKngton was to escape the abuse and
rrsecution of a tyrannical husband.
retired to bed after Bellington
left, but the struggles of a dying
woman were continually before me. "The
next morning I hurried out to the neighbors
and those of my working companions and
informed them of Wellington's treachery in
eloping with my wife, and produced the
letter referred to, which I characterized as
Wellington’s own work. The circumstances
of the supposed elopment, and the excite
ment of that morning are still fresh in the
minds of the people here, but my life has
been a most wretched one. I ’ was con
tinually haunted by her appearance, both
at home and at work, and several times
seriously thought of giving myself up to the
authorities and suffer the penalty of my
crime. The story of the elopment worked
well. No one doubted the truth of it, be
cause Bellington’s absence confirmed it.
Never having any children, I disposed of
what furniture I had and went boarding.
Wellington promised when he left that he
M ould keep me posted as to his movements
and whereabouts, but I have never heard
anything from him since. His silence, if
he is not dead, would seem to indicate that
he was glad to get away on account of what
happened, and did not intend to write or
keep me posted. ”
Crossby trembled and sank back in the
bed greatly exhausted. He lingered until
noon yesterday, when he died. When the
news of the murder became public'many of
the neighbors who remembered well the cir
cumstances of the elopement crowded
around the dead man’s house out of curi
osity, and discussed the terrible tale. The
case has been placed in the linnds of Detec
tive Johnson for investigation, who says an
effort may be made to find the body of the
murdered woman. His first object, however,
will be to get a clew to the whereabouts of
Wellington, who, if captured, will be able to
tell where the woman’s body was placed.
< 'rossby and Bellington are both spoken well
of by the quarrymen, who expressed their
great surprise at the confession of Crossby.
It is rumored that a clew,which may event
ually lead to the arrest of Bellington, has
already been obtained.

The Victim of a Mysterious Murder
Pound on a Gondola Car in Chicago.
From the New York Tribune.
Chicago, Oct. 28.—A fashionable rock
away carriage was shipped some days ago
to Studebakor Brothers, of this city, trom
Aew Haven, Conn., secured in a well-made
orate, covered with a tarpaulin and placed
on a gondola car. It reached Chicago over
tee Pennsylvania road at an early hour this
'norning, but was not taken up to the depot
for unloading until nearly 10 o’clock. When
foreman Crane and several truckers went
lo work to remove the carriage from the
car the attention of Crane was attracted by
a faint, but disagreeable odor, and he looked
through the crate into the rockaway. He

the body of a man. He immediately seut
for the police officer on duty at the station,
and after a glance at the body this officer
summoned a patrol wagon unci detectives.
V ken the latter arrived the orate and car
riage were opened and the holy removed.
I he man appeared to be about 22 years of
“Re. His face was cleanly shaven. His
height was just 6 feet 8 inches. He and and not
present the appearance of a vagrant, being
'airly well clad. He wore cotton trousers
of a dark color, with n dark waistcoat and
coat. Near the body lay a soft, brown felt
hat and on his feet were a good pair of laced
shoes. An india rubber overcoat lav near
'he laxly. A stubby beard of several days’
growth covered his cheeks and chin. Im
mediately over one eye was a bullet wound,
an, l the lower portion of the skull had been
crushed, as if by a blow from some blunt,
heavy instrument. The body was cold
when found, and the police are of the opin
-1011 that the man had at least been dead two
ua.vs, as the body had swollen slightly and
the fingernails had turned black.
It was apparent that the man had not
l>een long dead when he was put into the
carriage, as the cushions and hangings bore
blood stains. Nothing could be found that
w ould reveal the name of the man. In one
Pocket was a ticket admitting the beurer to
* 'crept l on of class packers to be given at
Rochester, Pa. The ticket bore the date
Oct. 28, and was issued by Glass Factory
10,6<J0. In another pocket was a meal ticket
that bore the inscription: ‘‘Abel’s: ripen
day and /light.” There was also a card
marked, “Fffie Johnson, No. 135) Water
street,” on one side, and on the other, in red
ink, “123 Terry.”
The body was sent to the morgue and the
police began formulating theories of the
murder. The most popular is that the man
was murdered for some money he may have
had, and that the murder haviug been com
mitted near the railroad, the carriage nat
urally suggested itself as a safe depository
for the corpse. What puzzles the detec
tives, however, is the fact that the freight
handlers about the Pennsylvania depot
claim that ail the bars of the crate were se
curely in position when the body was first
discovered, aiul that there wasnot sufficient
room between them to thmst the body
through. The police say that they have
learned that the car, on which the Carriage
was loaded, was sidetracked for something
at Rochester, Pa., and that it is extreme
ly probable that the murder was committed
there. An investigation has bean Instituted
at Rochester. In reply to inquiries, the po
lice at Pittsburg say they are unable to
throw- any light on the mystery. No one
has been reported missing there nor at
Rochester, they say. The proprietor of
Abel’s restaurant in Pittsburg knows noth
ing of the man, tho ticket, or any circum
stance that would give a clew. The police
will to-morrow photograph the body and
have copies of the picture widely circulated
in the region through which the carriage
A MURDEROUS PACKAGE.
An Infernal Machine Sent to Mr. Wech
sler Explodes in His House.
From the New York Times.
At 10 o’clock last night a District messen
ger boy called at the house of P. Wechsler,
of the firm of Wechsler & Abrahams, at 321)
Washington avenue, Brooklyn, and asked
for Mr. Wechsler. The old servant who
opened the door said that his employer was
not at home, and then the boy handed him
the package addressed to Mr. Wechsler and
The servant took the package up stairs to
Mrs. AVechsler’s room and handed it to her.
It was an innocent-looking package, and,
supposing that it might be something in
which she had an interest, or was, perhaps
meant for her, she resolved to open it. Her
little 10-year-old boy came close to her,
eager to see what the package might con
tain, and stood by her side as she began to
undo the wrappings. She found w-ithin
two small boxes, one of which was made of
paper and the other of wood. The latter
had a sliding top and, her curiosity being
now thoroughly aroused, she attempted to
She had only pulled the top a little when
there was a" sudden explosion, and she
sprang to her feet screaming with pain,
while the boy joined her with his cries.
The members of the family and servants
rushed into the room and found Mrs. Weeh
sler in a terrible condition. Her face and
hands were badly lacerated, particularly
her face, and she was almost blinded. The
boy, too, was rolling about the floor in
agony from the pain caused by lacerations
of his face and hands.
Dr. Ro-hester was called in at once and
an examination showed that the faces of
Mrs. Wechsler and her son were filled with
small pieces of metal which had been driven
iuto them by the force of the explosion.
The boy, while painfully hurt, is not con
sidered to be in any danger, but in the case
of Mrs. Wechsler it is feared that lockjaw
mav set in and that her death is certain.
The police authorities were promptly
given notice and at once went to work on
the case, but so far they have not been able
to get the slightest clew to the perpotrator
of the outrage. It seems certain that it was
intended that Mr. Wechsler should himself
cq>en the package.
When the boxes were examined by the
police they found in the paper box a silver
knife, fork and spoon, and in the wooden
box four small pocketbooks. The most
careful and minute examination failed,
however, to disclose any trace of the explo
sion, and the police are unable to say or
even to guess what it M-as. There was no
sign of any machinery to have worked an
explosion and none of the little bits of metal
about, similar to those which were (driven
into the face of Mrs. Wechsler and
her son. Where the explosive and
the pieces of metal were kept is
a thorough puzzle. The only rea
sonable explanation offered was that some
new kind of chemical compound had been
used, while, occupying small space, has tre
mendous force, and is exploded by a slight
friction. The boxes will be thoroughly and
carefully examined to-day by experts, and
it is possible that something may yet be
found which will lead to the discovery- of
just what the explosive is.
Mr. Wecshler is at a loss to know why he
has been singled out in this manner for de
struction. He said last night that he had
no enemies that he knew of who could thus
wish to compass his death.
A VERY BAD INDIAN.
The Ambitious Medicine Man Who Has
Caused the Crow Outbreak.
From the Philadelphia P) ess.
St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 28. —A number of
days ago Gus Beaulieu, of St. Paul, the
Deputy United States Marshal, addressed a
letter to a half-breed, H. Keiser, living at
Bull Mountain Station, Mont., asking the
inside history of the trouble among the Crow
Indians. Beaulieu has received the follow
ing tptter, dated Oct. 24:
“The trouble has all come from the
neglect of the government and from one
Indian. One young buck, aged 17 or 18,
has during the past summer been fasting,
and, as they call it, making medicine. He
was adopted, as the Indians say, by the
thunder and lightning as their son, and this
rave him power to slay anything that came
iw his way. Some little time ago he came
from his secluded spot in the mountains out
among his people and told them of some of
his discoveries. He prophesied to them a
number of things which came tme, and
this gave some of them great con
fidence in him, though others doubted.
He gradually kept gaining ground,
and at last took a small party and
went to war. He made a successful
trip, and brought back a band of horses.
A- he was coming through the agency with
his horses he shot the agent’s hor>e full of
holes and also the trade s’ store, saying that
his father, ‘Mr. Thunder,’ had advised him
to fight the whites and he must obey. He
heard that the troops were going to arrest
him and defied them. They let him go
until the present, and this has given some
of the Indians confidence, thinking the
whites wore actually afraid. The majority
of the Crows ‘■aid to arrest him or he would
give them trouble, but the government has
been too slow, waiting until the ex
citement died away, and hence every day
this young medicine man has been gain
ing ground and getting more follower,
until it has become a serious matter. Now
they are reinforcing at Fort Custer, getting
troops to make the arrest which if they had
done at the time would have avoided the
trouble, and everything would have been
peaceable, but nt >w it is doubtful when they
make the arrest if they don’t have a fight.
“The Crows’ agent, Gen. A. E. William
son, Is not to blame for this. It has all oc
curred from not arresting that one Indian.
The Crows have undoubtedly the best, agent
that has ever been sent to thorn, and they
have made more improvement under him
than they ever did before. These are the

For Pure Singing Tone.
The American Art Journal of New York
thus speaks of Mrs. Cecilia S. P. Cary, of
Rochester, N. Y. who is now recognized as
one of the finest Pianists and most success
ful Teachers that America has produced:
“Mrs. Cary made flying visits to New
York, receiving valuable instruction from
S. B. Mills, and drawing inspiration from
those two great tone masters, Thai berg and
Gottschalk. The production of a pure
singing tone had always been a study with
her, and, observing that these two great
pianists used only the Chickering Fianos,
she made a thorough investigation, which
resulted in her purchasing the first Cbiek
ering Grand that went into Western New
York. Since that time Mi's. Cary has been
a firm and steadfast friend of that Piano
Forte, and it is a matter of conscience with
her to advise the use of these instruments
with her class, over 70 of whom possess
A Word to the Wise. —A Piano which
is used and indorsed by such magnificent
artists as Thalberg, Gottschalk, Rivi King,
Teresa Careno, Wm. H. Sherwood and Mrs.
Cary is certainly a safe and desirable Piano
to buy. Over 74,000 Chiekerings have been
sold, and to-day, as always, the Chickering
Pianos lead the world.
