PULLED TRIGGER WITH TOE
Sylvester P. Crowe Ends His Life In Frostburg
[Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun]
Cumberland, Md., Nov. 7 - Sylvester Porter Crowe, 45 years old, a miner, who resided on Mechanic street, Frostburg, committed suicide shortly after noon today by shooting himself with a single barreled shotgun.  He went to the woodshed and placed the muzzle against his breast and pulled the trigger with his toe, having removed his shoe.  Death was instantaneous. Crowe bore a spendid reputation and was one of the leading Republican workers of Frostburg.  His act is said to have been prompted by domestic troubles.  He is survived by his widow and 11 children.  He was a brother of George and John Crowe, Frostburg.  Crowe, with Alfred Schofield, captured J. W. Campbell at Frostburg after Campbell had tried to kill three men on the night of September 12.

FUNERAL OF MR. S. CROWE
Bureau of the Evening Times
Frostburg, Md., Nov. 10,.
One of the largest funerals ever seen here was that of Mr. Sylvester P. Crowe, the unfortunate man who took his own life on Satruday, of which a full account was given in this paper on Monday evening. During yesterday afternoon, hundreds of people visited the home of the family and viewed the remains of Mr. Crowe and by 2 o'clock, the time set for the funeral, there was at least six to seven hundred people in and around the home and scattered along Mechanic street. The funeral was in charge of the Jr. O.U.A.M. Council No. 11(?), and 275 of its members turned out to pay their last respects to their deceased brother.  The funeral left the home at 1 p.m. with the 275 members of the order in the lead, followed by the officers, flower bearers and pallbearers in carriages.  The members of the order marched as far as Eckhart flat, when they opened ranks and with uncovered heads allowed the funeral to pass through, only the officers going to the cemetery.  The order, after the funeral had passed, countermarched to the hall in the Fisher building, on Main street.  The funeral proceeded to the old Porter graveyard, about two miles north of Eckhart, where interment was made.  Rev. A. H. Thompson, pastor of the First M. E. Church, read the burial service, and this was followed by the ritualistic funeral ceremony of the Jr. O.U. A. M. The floral offerings were many and very beautiful, especially one sent by the the Hon. Geo. A. Pearse(?), with a card upon which was the following inscription: "With the affectionate regard of an old and warm friend, to one of his most faithful and loyal friends and followers." The pallbearers were W.G. Stevens, Jno. Eisel and Wm. Eisel, of Council No. 11, Jr. O.U.A.M. and Henry Hartig, Wm. Cronin and L.R. Evans of the Royal Ateanum(?).  Mr. Crowe having been a member of both of those organizations.  The flower-bearers were H.M. Skidmore, Thos. H. Morgan, Earl Stevey, Jno. W. Timmons, Elmer H. Lewis, Jno. Bean, Albert Capel and W. H. Hanna.
