"They Skipped."
"One of the boldest and most unprincipled schemes to get money we have heard of for sometime was very effectively worked near Clarksburg a few nights before Christmas. The exact facts in connection with the case are a little hard to get, but the following are, we believe, in the neighborhood of correct. It seems that Monroe Crum and John Springer conceived the idea of going west and being short of means decided that Hosea Springer, the father of John, whom they knew had money, should foot the bill. So they took a bloody shirt, went to within a few hundred yards of Mr. Springer's house, fired their pistols several times and then Crum took the bloody garment to Mr. Springer and in a hurried and excited manner, explained that he and
John had gotten in trouble with John Green and Dan Ledsinger and had killed them both, that he had one of their shirts which spoke for itself and brought his story to a close by asking for money to get away on. Mr. Springer, excited and without giving the story the consideration and allowance it deserved, coming from Crum, shelled out $90 and told him to get John and skip. The story proved to be a hoax and in investigation it was learned that the parties went to Lexington that night and took a train to some point in Texas. Springer had a wife and two children and they were with him when they left Lexington. Crum is a single man. The party, according to the ticket agent, bought tickets for Farmville, TX. Mr. Springer sent Henry
Springer and Will Belew to Farmville but they failed to get any clue to the runaways.
