PITTSBURG, Pa.. Oct. 10,-Charles
Cawley. aged 17 years, at 8 o'clock this
morning killed his mother and 12-year-old
sister and wounded fatally four smaller
sisters, one of whom was a baby.
TJie most vicious and at the same time
one of the most horrible crimes ever com
mitted in the history tt this city was the
murder of his mother and the fatally
wounding of the other members of the
family by Charles Cawley, a boy only If
years of age. at the family residence
early this morning. The crime was fiend
ish In every particular and the most
atrocious -over placed on record in this
.About 3 o'clock this morning, while the
members of the family were asleep In
their various apartments, the boy Charles
stealthily arose from his bed, where he
had been sleeping with an older brother,
dfssed and went to the basement. Where
he secured the axu with which the ter
rible deed was committed. He then
ascended the stairs and at once went to
tho room where his mother and sisters
were sleeping peacefully, little dreaming
of tho. horrible fate that was about to
overtake""- them. The fiend, . evidently
thinking that the light in the room was
burning too bright to suit his purpose,
turned It down until only-the ' dim outlines
of the forms of his intended victims could
be seen; which probably accounts for his
failure, to ,WU jiutf iRhS-'-evenr : occupant ot
the room. The first to suffer at the hands
of this Insane monster was the' mother.
She wns sleeping soundly and without
the leant intimation that danger was
near. The boy, holding the axe poised
above his head, crept slowly to the bed
and with all his strength struck his
mother squarely on the forehead, crush
ing the skuU snd killing her instantly
she never knew by whose hand she died.
The stghjo blood made him furious and
he 'struck her" again and again, until her
head was crushed Into a Jelly.
The force of the blows falling upon the
mother Jarred the bed sufficiently to
awaken Bell, a sister of the murderer. 12
years of age. but before she had entirely
realized what had taken place she re
ceived a blow that rendered her uncon
scious. Not content with this he struck
her again and sgaln, until he was satis
fled that she was dead. The girl did
not regain consciousness before she died.
After beating his mother and Bell till
he was thoroughly convinced that they
were dead he turned his attention to an
other bed In the rdom. where the twin
children. Adeline and Ray, were sleeping,
whom be attacked, fracturing their
skulls with a single blow before they
could utter a cry for mercy. The next
to receive the onslaught of the mantaa
was Agnes, sged 10, whom he struck with
such force as to crush her head Into a
Jelly at a single blow. He returned to
the twins and struck them both a num
ber of times on their bodies.
, Even the' Innocent little baby did not
escape the maddened brute: The dis
turbance had awakened It. and not receiv
ing the usual attention from Its mother,
who lay sold in death at its side,-began
to cry. Thin seemed to increase the
frenay of the boy, who made a rush lo
the bed and struck the belplesslnfanta
tterrlBleblow on the chest, from the ef
fects of which it died soon after. The
little victim was Just 15 months old.

When he- had beaten the Inanimate
forms of his victims till he was satisfied
that they were all dead he left the room
taking the axe with him, evidently In
tending to mete out the same fate to
his brothers, who had not been aroused!
by the disturbance in the room of the
mother. He walked silently down -the
hall to the front room, where the brothers
were sleeping, first striking the light hi
the hall. Just as he opened the -door one
of the brothers awoke and beheld a sight
which almost caused the blood to ireeie
In his veins. There tfi the doorway, di
rectly in the center, of the panel of light
which streamed in from the ball, stood
the maniac, still grasping the bloody axe
and staring wildly at the occupants of
the bed. At first the awakened brother
thought he must be dreaming, and Shook
his brother who was in bed With him to
wake him. No sooner bad he made tho
move than with a cry resembling that
of an enraged beast the murderer, raising
the axe above, his bead. leaped into the
room, slamming the door after him and
rushed for the bed. atriking-wlth all his
might the place where he supposed his
brother was lying. But theboys, realUm
that their lives were in danger, were Wide)
awake In an Instant, and at the same
time the door was closed they slipped
from the bed to the floor. The room was
now In darkness and the demon began
striking right and left, in hopes that his
intended victims would get within range
of 'a.tteB'aaean'Wt
The boys both, remained on the floor,
keeping absolutely quiet, scarcely dating
to breathe for fear It would attract the
attention of the ' fiend to Where ? they
were hiding. After belaboring the bed un
til he thought both the boys? had- been
killed the frenxled boy started; to leave
the room. ' Just aa he opened the door
letting in the light, he discovered ono
: of-the . brothers. James, aged. JO years,
arising from his position on the floor.
Like a flash" he . turned upon him and
struck him a glancing blow slightly cut
ting his arm. In an instant James
grabbed a rocking chair to protect him
self as best ho could. Around the room
they struggled for some time, the Insane
boy striking the chair aa, rapidly as pos
sible, literally cutting it to pieces. .
Finally the weapon, the handle of
which was wet with the blood of his
mother and sisters, slipped from hla
grasp, enabling his brothers to grapple
with him, which they lost no time In do
ing. Then ensued a terrible struggle be
tween three brothers, one' of. whom was
a raving maniac and tho others flghtlnC
for their lives, ound and round the room
for their Uvea Round and round the room
times it was feared the boys would be un
