FOUTCH, Charles (also HAMMOND, William P., MOONEY, William J.)

W. J. MOONEY DIED AT HOME EARLY- TODAY
Had Been With Foutch Yesterday—W. P. Hammond Victim of Wood Alcohol Poison
County authorities are expected to investigate into sudden deaths of two local white men today, who, the Police Department believe, are the victims of poisonous liquor. One man is believed by police to be Charles "Cotton" Foutch, about 45, who had lived in a shack on lower Canal street, in the rear of the Crystal Laundry plant. He was found in a dying condition this morning in the shack and died at the Allegany Hospital a half hour later.
The other is William J. Mooney, aged 40, a laborer, who died early this morning at his home, 1004 Grape Alley, from undetermined causes.
William P. Hammond, 27, 573 Arnett Terrace, died suddenly Thursday night in Winchester, Va., while on a visit to relatives, of wood alcohol poisoning according to the county coroner at Winchester.
Foutch In Agony When Found
Foutch was found by Officers Raymond Johnston and John W. Smallwood lying on the floor of the shack about 10:30 o'clock this morning. Two men, Dewey Emerson and John Allen, had reported to the police that there was a sick man in a shack on Canal street. Foutch appeared in great agony, his hands clenched, mouth open, and in a semi-stupor, the officers said. He was placed in the patrol ambulance and taken to the Allegany Hospital. He was in a dying condition and lived only a short while after being examined by Dr. Charles Zimmerman. His body was removed to the Stein Funeral Home. The officers said they found nothing in the shack that would indicate that Foutch had been drinking, nor were they able to detect the odor of liquor on him.
Mooney Apparently Sober
William J. Mooney, age 38 years, unmarried, died at the home of his parents, Andrew and Johanna Mooney, 1004 Grape alley at 10:30 this morning. According to a statement from Andrew Mooney, his son came home last night around 10:30 o'clock and was apparently sober. He made some comment to Mrs. Mooney, his mother, about some-one dying or some-one dropping along the "Tow Path" when he was on his way home. The family was not certain as to just what the statement was, and Mrs. Mooney could not be interviewed. Andrew Mooney was emphatic about his son being sober and stated. "When he came in last night I never dreamed he would be a corpse this morning". Mr. Mooney claimed that during the night he heard his son coughing and called to him asking if he "wanted anything". His son said "no", and Mooney claimed he did not know he was sick until this morning when he appeared worse, and a physician was summoned. The actual cause of the death is vague, and physicians state Mooney was dying when they arrived. It has been determined however that Mooney had been "down along the tow path with some of the boys" and it is possible that his death may have been due to poison liquor. According to advice received by local authorities, Mooney and Foutch had been seen together yesterday. Mooney is survived, besides his parents, by one brother, Michael, and three sisters, Mrs. Margaret Litton, Thomas street, Mrs. Julia Frame, Pioneer Place and Mrs. Johanna Thomas, North Centre street.
