SCHWARZER, William

HARTMONSVILLE - We suppose there is not any reasonable doubt but what the man, William Schwarzer, who was run over by the train on the Elk Garden branch some time ago was asleep, notwithstanding the jury of inquest rendered a verdict of murder. We have the information from good authority that a man passing by saw the man lying on the track and wanted to help him up, but he refused to go, and told the man to let him alone, for he knew what he was doing. This man was the last man, so far as we know, that saw him alive. Now we are not trying to get any controversy through the papers, but we have written for the purpose of trying to make plain to the public the sad death of this unfortunate young man, and to try to clear up that which has been a mystery to many ever since it occurred.

SCOTT, William Irvin
 
A recent Frostburg State graduate drowned in a pond near Midland in an abandoned strip mine along the Pompey Road. Yesterday afternoon the body of William Irvin Scott, 22, Frostburg, was found by scuba divers in the strip mine. He was the son of Jacob Irvin Scott and Susan (Haney) Scott and had received his degree from Frostburg State College two weeks ago. He was a graduate of Beall High School. Sheriff William Orr was informed by Mr. Scott that his son left home about 8 p.m. Friday and when he did not return by midnight he became worried. He said his son always came home relatively early. About 3 a.m. yesterday the father started to drive around the Frostburg area in an attempt to locate his son. About 7:30 a.m. Mr. Scott called Sheriff William Orr and reported his son missing but his car was on Pompey Road. The sheriff told Mr. Scott to return home and that he would organize a search. Mr. Scott later returned to the search and at 10:15 a.m. found his son's clothing near the abandoned strip mine. In the meantime, Sheriff Orr had contacted the LaVale Volunteer Rescue Squad and along with his deputies, members of the Midland, South Cumberland Rescue and LaVale Volunteer Fire Company and Boy Scouts combed the area where the car was found. Charles Winters of Midland spotted a white object in the strip mine pond and two scuba divers of the LaVale unit, Thomas Pryor and James Miller, entered the water and recovered Scott's body.
