Feb. 13,--Murder case involving three Connellsvilic men for the slaying of a Scottdalo storekeeper, which was brought to FaycUe county for trial at the March term, was returned to Westmoreland county, where the crime was com- mittled, just in time to avoid a petition by county commissioners protesting the added burden to Fayette county taxpayers. The three defendants were first arrested for the slaying of Henry Foster, 72-year-old Vanderbilt farmei-, last December 3. "Later, it was found the trio, on December 13, while culminating a planned hold-up, shot and killed Naum AchefT, Bulgarian, in his little confectionery store on th.c Westmoreland county end of Everson bridge. Following conferences with District Attorney Charles D. Copeland, at Greensburg", it was announced by District Attorney James A, Reilly that both cases would be prosecuted in Fayette county courts. Since the .murder occurred within 500 yards o£ the- county line, authorities in either county could take jurisdiction and Reilly took charge. However; to prosecute the Westmoreland county case here, the court would be called upon appoint defense counsel--involving several hundred dollars of expense for the taxpayers of this county for a slaying beyond the boundary line of this county. In addition, in event of a verdict providing for incarceration in an institution, Fayette county taxpayers would have been forced to meet maintenance costs o£ the three defendants. As county commissioners and citizens prepared to take action demanding to know why this county should be shouldered with tiie added expense ol a trial which was Westmoreland county's responsibility, District Attorney ReiJIy announced that the case had been turned oved to adjacent county authorities for presentation before a Westmoreland county grand jury which, this week, returned true bills against the trio. "If it hadn't gone back, we were going to take action in the court here to find out why we would have to I was Indignant. "I never faint. 1 CHAPTER FORTY-EIGHT THE ROOM was pitch black. I aat up in a sort of stupor. I was in bed. Memory returned. I made a convulsive movement. "Easy, baby," said a familiar voice. The bed light waa snapped on. I blinked my.eyes. Phil stood ·above me. He looked pale and shaken. I said weakly: "Am I--dying?" "Dying?" He burst into helpless laughter. "You Tainted!" "Fainted!" I was indignant. "I ·never faint!" '."Well, you gave a darned good 'imitation, honey." I demanded wrathfully: "Juat what did happen?" His laughter died. He said soberly: "We got the murderer, Elsie. He's dead." "JDcnci!" I shivered. "Mr. Horace dead! That little man! How?" "Cyanide. He had a capsule of the stuff in his pocket." "Oh!" Tears filled my eyes. "The poor soul!" "He was a murderer, Elsie." "I know. And he--he shot Reginald!" "With blanks, baby, Reginald is as good as new and twice as handsome." I drew away from him; "Then-then Mac wanted him to and Delia and Reginald--kissing!" "Mac arranged it," he admitted. "But. don't you understand? He had to do it thai. way. Horace never would have confessed. He had to be trapped." * A great weariness enveloped me. ''Poor Daphne! She knew!" Phil nodded. "Yes, she knew." "And that was the reason she said she»'d never marry?" "That was the reason." "But I don't understand--" I began, when the door opened and Mdfityre came into the room. A tired, disheveled Mac, with his hair standing on end and his necktie screwed into a ball behind his ear, He said no word, but dropped into *. chair by the fireplace. "And that, my children," he said at length, "is that,'' His voice was tired and strained; all the eagerness had gone from it. "I can't believe it!" I spoke my thoughts aloud, "I can't believe that Mr. Horace was the murderer.'" "He was the murderer all right, Elsie. It had U? be him. There was no one else." "You suspected him from the first?" He smiled. "Suspected him, yes. But I wasn't sure until he shot himself in the shoulder. Them I knew, but I had no proof." "Shot himself in the shoulder?" I glanced from Mac to Phil, "What do you mean?" "Just that. Horace shot himself. With his own gun, that which I found wrapped in the glove with the end of the thumb shot out.** "Where--where did you find it?" "Hidden in a shoe in his closet, Elsie." "But why should he shoot himself?" "I think," Mac said slowly, "that he knew I had stumbled on the truth. I think, too," that " he chose that method of withdrawing suspicion from his son. In spite of everything, he was fond of his children. He jnight have freed himself in the courts. Instead he chose death. He refused to save himself at his children's expense." "What ma/le you suspect him of shooting himself?" "It was this way, Elsie. When Minnie told us that she had discovered Horace shot, she knocked my theories four ways to Sunday. I thought I was wrong again. Then Horace, wounded, told his story. It was a smooth story, but he made one bad mistake." "And that was ?** "He said that as the bullet struck his shoulder he dropped the shirts in his arm to the floor--" "So that was what you were doing?" Phi! put in. "That was what I was doing. You see, we found the shirts beside the bed. And that was where Horace erred. Had he been shot from the doorway as he claimed, the shirts would have been beside or before the bureau. They couldn't possibly have fallen beside the bed. So I knew that he had shot himself and had carefully arranged the props for our appearance on the scene." I questioned: "Where did tlae glove come in?"/ "Well, Elsie, when a man shoots himself the powder from the bullet burns his clothing at close range. I examined the coat Horace had worn at the time of the shooting 1 , but there were absolutely no traces of powder burns on. it! That had me stumped! If I was right, and he had done the shooting, there had to be burns! Then, too, the fact that the bullet struck the mirror and glanced off into the woodwork make it impossible to deduce the distance the bullet had traveled, or its line of passage. 'Horace arranged his props perfectly except for the business of the shirts. "Naturally, I couldn't examine his person at the time of the shooting. Therefore he carried the gun and glove with him. Why he kept the damaged glove "is a mystery. But murderers are not normal persons. Sooner or later the smartest killer gives himself away," I frowned: "But I stUl don't understand the meaning- of the glove." Mac elucidated. "The gun, Elsie, was placed in the thumb of the glove and then shot. The burns were on the glove, Horace stood near the doorway; he placed the gun hi the glove and shot himself in the shoulder. The bullet, as it had been meant to do, struck the mirror. Previously he had arranged the shirts on the floor. When I found the one good glove in the trash barrel it came to me instantly that its mate might well have been used in just such fashion." - **DJd Mr. Horace'Uirow away the good glove?" . "Yes. He had no reason to think that a glove in a trash barrel would send him to his death." I persisted: "How did you find the gun?" "That, Elsie, was work! It wasn't in the laboratory or in the library. Since those rooms and his .bedroom were used almost exclusively by Horace, I surmised/ that it must bo hidden somewhere in the latter. Tonight I got Ellis to inveigle Horace into conversation, in the library. Phil and I searched his room, found the gun and glove, and when I had exchanged the bullets for blanks, Phil returned both articles, placing them exactly where we had found them." I had yet another question. "Why was It necessary to have. him shoot Reginald -- and why should he want to shoot Reginald, anyway?" "He wanted to shoot Reginald,". Mac replied, "because lie himself was in love with Bella Craig. It. was necessary to catch him in the act - of another- murder.-- Even, though I was certain that'he was the murderer, th* proof I held. would not have convinced a jury. A - smart criminal lawyer could have riddled my theories to rib- iH bons. Therefore, I arranged to hav« Delia and j Reginald make an appointment J for a midnight meeting Iff the library. Horace, as I intend-, ed, overheard the conversation." . - , "And did Reginald know-. . he would* be shot at?" ' " Mac grinned: "He knew, and he was not pleased! But he is in love with Delia and Delia was not .overly, anxious to become entangled with the police. When I told-her that I would cite her as an accessory,! she soon persuaded Reggy to do as I wanted. Of course I had nothing definite on Delia, She denies that she knew or suspected Horace's guilt. In fact, she denies she knew that he was madly in love with her. But she was frightened enough of becpming involved in a scandal to do as I asked." .. ~ "How did you know Mr. Horace was in, love with her?" "You told me that, Elsie, when · you described the scene at the library door when. Horace came upon, Delia and Reginald, and he explained his reactions to you by saying that he suffered from arthritis." , "Oh!" . . "I was positive then that he wa» the guilty party." (To Be Continued) stand the expenses of the trial," Commissioner Pohn W. Rankin declared. "We have all we can do to meet costs o£ cases in our own county without going into Westmoreland and assuming any of their obligations."
