ALLEGED MURDERER IS HANGED AT UNION, MO

Union, Mo., Sep 12.-- John W. Carroll, 24, Fairchance, Pa., was hanged in the jail yard here today for complicity in the murder of Benjamin Schobe, garage owner.

Charles Jacoy, Walter Shearer and Carroll were convicted by slaying Schobe whose murder occurred on a lonely road near Berger, Mo., last October. The trio called Schobe to repair an automobile tire. They argued with Schobe when he asked them for money and then finally killed him.
Jacoy has already been put to death and Shearer is serving a life sentence.

Holt County Sentinel (Oregon, Mo) August 9, 1867 Pg2

AN OUTRAGE

An almost inhuman outrage was committed a short time ago in the vicinity of Pennville, in this county.
A little orphan girl, aged six years, resided with the family of a Mr. Gates. Mrs. Gates became offended at the girl, and in punishing her, practiced some of the most refined cruelties it has ever been our lot to record.
The child was first beaten in an unmerciful manner, until there was not six inches of space on the child's frame that did not contain a scar. The woman then placed the girl upon a hot stove, burning her flesh in a horrible manner. Not content with this, the girl's arm was next thrust in the fire, to show her, as the woman said, that " chickens wouldn't pick corn out of a heated stove."
Mrs. Gates was arrested on a warrant issued by Esquire McGiddagon, and was held to bail in the sum of $6,000. The bail was later reduced to $1,500.

BOY CONFESSES TO WRECKING A TRAIN

Maryville, Mo., Apr 17.-- Two 15-year-old boys, Paul Baumgardner and Harry Cain, were arrested at Wilcox Wednesday morning and brought to Maryville and lodged in jail, charged with having wrecked the Omaha & St. Louis passenger train last Wednesday night in which the engine, mail and express car were derailed and Engineer Roberson seriously injured.
Paul Baumgardner is a son of the station agent at Wilcox, and made a full confession to his father. He said he and Cain were walking up the track the night of the wreck, when Cain said: " Let's wreck the St. Louis express," and he consented.
They got a crowbar and broke the switch rod, which ran the train off the ends of the rails. " We had no thought of robbery, but just did it for deviltry."
The St. Louis express does not stop at Wilcox, but slows down while passing the switches, and was running only about 18 miles an hour when derailed. The boys will have their preliminary hearing next Saturday.

MEXICAN ARMY LIEUTENANT HELD ON CHARGE OF THEFT

Alphonso M. Siliceo, a lieutenant in the Mexican Army, is locked up in the Central District Police Station on a charge of stealing an overcoat. A warrant charging petit larceny was issued against him Wednesday afternoon.
Siliceo is a member of one of the oldest families of Mexico. His home is in Coyoacan, a suburb of the City of Mexico. He obtained a leave of absence two months ago and came to St. Louis on a visit and had to learn the English language. He has been living at No. 1211 Washington avenue.
Tuesday night he visited the bowling alleys at Broadway and Pine street. While he was reading a paper, he says, someone took his overcoat from the rack.
At 10:30 he decided to go home and picked up a coat which he thought was his and walked out of the place.
Charles A. White ran after Siliceo, caught up with him, and said, " That's my coat."
Siliceo protested at first, not understanding White, but agreed to return to the bowling alley with him. There he examined the coat and admitted it was not his. He was placed under arrest and taken to the Four Courts.

From his cell, Siliceo spoke to a reporter in broken English: " I did not try to steal the gentleman's coat, I made a mistake, and now they lock me up."
